Zidane Confirms Real Madrid Interested in Re-signing Ronaldo

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has confirmed speculation that the club is interested in re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. Ronaldo signed for Juventus from Real in 2018 for a fee of around £100m. But the 36-year-old has failed to deliver the Champions League trophy that the Serie A club craves during his three years in Turin. Juventus were knocked out by Porto last week, raising question marks over Ronaldo’s future in Italy. The Portugal captain has one year to run on his deal and the club risks losing him on a free transfer next summer. Zidane has admitted they may bring Ronaldo back to the Santiago Bernabeu. When asked if there’s any truth in the reports about Ronaldo, Zidane said: “Yes, there may be. “We know Cristiano, we know the person he is an...

Thomas Tuchel Names Player to Miss Liverpool vs Chelsea Game

  Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has confirmed that defender, Thiago Silva, will not take part in his side’s Premier League clash against Liverpool on Thursday night at Anfield.

However, speaking at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, Tuchel revealed that the Brazilian international would not play for Chelsea against Liverpool. “Thiago [Silva] made his first training with the team but didn’t finish the last exercise, not because of any pain but just to be aware of taking a risk,” Tuchel said. “I assume he will train today, but he is not at 100 percent, so he will not join...

Premier League Drops Referee Lee Mason for this Weekend’s Fixtures

The Premier League has confirmed that referee Lee Mason will not take charge of any of this weekend’s games. Mason, 49, was at the centre of controversy last Saturday, during West Brom’s 1-0 victory over Brighton at the Hawthorns. He disallowed a Lewis Dunk free-kick, despite blowing his whistle for play to restart. It led to mass protests from the Brighton players and resulted in heavy criticism. Mason, who was due to be the fourth official for Liverpool’s game at Sheffield United 24 hours later, was then withdrawn, due to a ‘calf injury. That has again been cited as the reason for his lack of involvement this weekend.
