Destiny – Klopp on Roma draw

first_imgAfter Liverpool surprised with an amazing performance in quarter-finals of the Champions League and eliminated Manchester City, they have now been paired with Roma for their semi-final clash.They avoided favourites Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and Jurgen Klopp seems to think this was their destiny, rather than a stroke of luck. The first leg will be taking place at Anfield on April 24 and the second one will be the next Wednesday at Stadio Olimpico – the same stadium where Liverpool won their first European Cup in 1977. The next one they won at home against – surprisingly – Roma in 1984.“I will watch them for sure because it is destiny or whatever,” Klopp shared, according to ESPN.“How can I say? If any German goes to Bern in Switzerland he cannot avoid thinking about 1954 [when Germany won their first World Cup against Hungary].”divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“There are not a lot of people around on the planet from that time now but it is just a special place.”“You think: ‘OK, it happened here, well done, all these guys’. That is how it is, but it was too long ago.”“Of course, if I find something that helped make this place even more remarkable or special for Liverpool then I will use it,” Klopp went on to add.last_img read more


Vialli thinks Juve should sign Rakitic

first_imgFormer Juventus striker Gianluca Vialli has voiced his opinion that Juventus should sign Ivan Rakitic, who is currently playing at Barcelona, in the summer transfer window before Emre Can.The German international will be out of contract at the end of the Campaign and considering the heavy speculations that he would be joining on a free transfer, Vialli had his say on the matter.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.He thinks that Emre Can would indeed do a better job than Sami Khedira, who is currently playing for Juve, but is still not entirely certain he is the right player for the team.“Emre Can doesn’t fully convince me for Juve, he doesn’t set my pulses racing. I’m not convinced that he’d do better than Khedira because he’s not the perfect fit, in my opinion. Juve need to strengthen their midfield, but Rakitic would be better than Emre Can,” Vialli stated, according to Calcio Mercato.last_img read more

I thought it was vitally important that they can handle Aston Villa.”“That was the reason for going for the experience of [Glenn] Whelan, [Ahmed] Elmohamady, John Terry, of course, Mile – they all handle playing under pressure for a big club.”last_img read more

Its not a foul Muscat disagrees with VAR decision

I’m sick of this,” Bosnich said via Abc.“The reason why we’ve got the VAR is so that referees can have a re-look at it and realise it wasn’t even a foul … if this is going to continue, they need to lose their job for a couple of weeks.”Victory coach Kevin Muscat in a calmer way than he did on the sideline at the time expressed his thoughts.Dean Bouzani on loan to PEC Zwolle Henry Ikenna Ugwu – September 3, 2018 Melbourne City has opened up on Friday about Dean Bouzani’s move to join the European club, Pec Zwolle, on a loan.Bouzani watched Zwolle from…“I’ll just go as far as saying it’s not a foul,” Muscat said.“To concede the way we did, the time we did, if anything gave them some momentum.

Barcelona fans cant decide between Xavi and Setien

first_imgAccording to a poll made by Marca, the FC Barcelona fan base is on the fence about which manager they want between Xavi and Setien.Now that FC Barcelona is uncertain about Ernesto Valverde’s future in the club after this season, the fans have been asked about their preferences between Xavi Hernandez and Quique Setien to replace the current manager.There have been several disagreements between important parts of the fan bases, as they both like either of both managers and they are both considered worthy replacements who can continue the club’s offensive philosophy and style of play.There was a survey conducted by Marca about which manager should replace Ernesto Valverde is the current manager doesn’t renew his contract with FC Barcelona.The voted candidates were Xavi Hernandez, Quique Setien, Robert Martinez, Thierry Henry, Jordi Cruyff, Arsene Wenger, Laurent Blanc, Ronald Koeman, Frank de Boer, amongst others.The shocking part of this poll in which more than 70,000 readers participated, was that Xavi won with 31% of the votes, and Setien took a staggering 30%.The third place was taken by Robert Martinez, the Belgium manager took 13% of the total votes but was still very far from the two leading candidates.Xavi o Setién, uno de estos dos puede ser uno de los posibles entrenadores del Barça. pic.twitter.com/TMVys79eZA— Once Culé (@OnceCule) January 5, 2019Quique Setien’s claim to the jobThere really is no difficulty in knowing why the fans want the Real Betis manager to take control of Barcelona if Ernesto Valverde leaves, we are talking about the current professional coach who knows tiki-taka in the best possible manner after Pep Guardiola.With Real Betis, Setien proved his credentials to its fullest after taking the squad all the way to the UEFA Europa League this season and making a great presentation with the smashing victory against AC Milan during the group stage of this year’s competition.The manager has already gotten praise from former Barcelona players who currently play at Real Betis, comparing him to the same training methods that Pep Guardiola used during the time they were at the Catalan club.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).So in reality, having Quique Setien coaching Barcelona really is a no-brainer due to the evident offensive style that he has preached throughout his whole career.There is no question that players such as Lionel Messi would benefit greatly from Quique Setien’s arrival, his offensive nature would maximize the star’s best attributes and FC Barcelona would be the biggest winner of this combination.El juez me ha impuesto una condena a voleones forzados. https://t.co/VZOezBE7nG— Quique Setien (@QSetien) October 24, 2018Xavi Hernandez’s claim for the jobIn all honesty, the reason Xavi was the winner of this poll was that he is the latest pupil of this already legendary style of play and the most immediate Pep Guardiola alumn.He’s even talked about the way in which he would manage the squad one he takes control of it, there are some very striking similarities to the same methods that Pep used for an obvious reason.But if we go a bit further down the analysis, Xavi Hernandez is actually the final product of a long line of experiments that FC Barcelona has been doing for the last three decades.One could make the argument that other midfielders such as Sergio Busquets or Andres Iniesta are also fantastic variations of the same style of a midfielder, but Xavi Hernandez is the absolute epitome of what a young Johan Cruyff envisioned when he first took control of Barcelona as a manager.It only makes sense that once he finishes his major as a professional manager, Xavi Hernandez takes the batton to help the whole Barcelona philosophy move into the next stage of evolution with his unique and innovative ideas.Which manager would you prefer for Barcelona as Valverde’s replacement, Xavi or Setien?

The EU funding for TCI under the EDF is in any event assured until 2019, so it would be a longer term financial effect.

Fabregas impresses in Monaco debut
