Barcelona icon, Dani Alves has named the player that should have won the 2021 Ballon d’ Or award ahead of Paris Saint-Germain star, Lionel Messi.

Chelsea vs Man United: I’m happy we can play without Lukaku – Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel has said that he is happy that his Chelsea team can survive without their top striker, Romelu Lukaku and other top stars who are injured at the moment. The German also lambasted some people who are claiming that the team is better without Lukaku, who has been injured for weeks now. Lukaku has missed The Blues last seven matches due to an ankle injury but is now on the verge of returning. Chelsea have been unbeaten in Lukaku’s absence and their latest display was a 4-0 thrashing of Juventus in the Champions League this week. And this has led to claims that the west London side are more of a threat without their £97.5 million striker. “I understand why people say this as people always look for easy solutions,” Tuchel said at his press conference on Friday. “...

A slap in the face’ – Rudiger fumes over Chelsea’s latest contract offer

Chelsea defender, Antonio Rudiger, reportedly feels the club’s latest contract offer is a ‘slap in the face,’ Bild reports. Rudiger was left fuming after Chelsea fell short of his wage demands by £60,000-a-week. The report added that Rudiger is looking for £10m-a-year, which works out to around £190k-a-week. But Chelsea are only offering him £7m-a-year – which is around £130k-a-week. The 28-year-old has been one of Chelsea’s star men since Thomas Tuchel took charge from Frank Lampard in January. Rudiger’s contract with Chelsea will expire at the end of the season and he is yet to sign an extension amid rumoured interest from other top European clubs. Providing an update on his contract situation with the club in October, Rudiger said, “The most important thing is that I...

Mourinho reveals who to blame for Roma’s 3-2 defeat to Lazio

Danny Murphy Compares Leicester City’s Ndidi to Chelsea’s Kante

Former Liverpool player, Danny Murphy, has compared Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi to Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante. Murphy said Nidid is more important to Leicester than Kante is to Chelsea. He pointed out that Leicester tends to struggle without Ndidi in the starting line-up while Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has the luxury of calling upon Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic if Kante is not available for selection. Ndidi enjoyed an excellent campaign in 2020-2021, helping Leicester to win the Emirates FA Cup and finish fifth in the Premier League table, while Kante helped Chelsea to win the UEFA Champions League. “They [Chelsea] have built some squad at Stamford Bridge and are brimming with confidence,” Murphy was quoted as saying by Metro UK. “They ended last season by win...

Messi is not the answer to PSG’s problems – Thierry Henry

Former Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry, has claimed Lionel Messi is not the answer to Paris Saint-Germain’s problems. Henry hailed Messi as “superhuman”, but feels PSG need to work on their defence if they want to win silverware this season. Messi signed for the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer after his shock exit from Barcelona, but Henry insists “balance is most important”. Henry said on Amazon Prime: “We are talking about the team in which I played at Barcelona, but people forget to point out that we weren’t conceding a lot of goals. “Teams that don’t concede a lot of goals are not far from the title, or even from the Champions League. “When you have superhuman players, it gets a little easier but when I see how PSG is evolving at the moment, they concede...

Tottenham vs Man City: Guardiola Reveals Fears for this season

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has admitted he fears his team may start the new season slowly again. Guardiola’s men dropped points in five of their first eight Premier League fixtures last year. With a number of international players having returned to training only a matter of days before their opening game at Tottenham Hotspur, the Spaniard is wary. City turned the situation around brilliantly last campaign, as they embarked on a 28-game unbeaten run from late November, to take charge of the title race and went on to win it. “Before, it was four or five weeks for preparation in the pre-season. Now Thursday is the first day we were all together. It is completely different. “It is similar to last season when we played against Wolves without any frie...

I will never be the same player at Real Madrid – Eden Hazard

  Real Madrid midfielder, Eden Hazard, has said his numerous ankle fractures means he would never be the same player as he was 10 years ago. Hazard will start for the first time in Euro 2020 in Belgium’s last Group B match against Finland on Monday. But the 28-year-old admits he might not be ready to compete the full 90 minutes. “I never doubted my qualities, but whether I would be 100% fit for the European Championship was going to be a question. “I broke my ankle three times, it will never be the same as 10 years ago. But I know that when I am in shape, that I can prove myself on the field and that’s what I’m working on now. “I’m not 100% yet, but I’m ready to start. But that was the plan, to bring me along gradually. It’s especially important to be completely ...

Euro 2020: UEFA States position on Ronaldo, Pogba, others removing Coca-Cola, Heineken bottles

  UEFA has asked players in the ongoing European championships to stop moving strategically placed sponsor drinks from news conference platforms. Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal was the first to start the trend when he pushed aside two Coca-Cola bottles from his vicinity, replacing them with a water bottle. Italy’s Manuel Locatelli joined the Portugal star by also removing Coca-Cola bottles during a press conference. Paul Pogba, a Muslim, who does not drink alcohol, also copied Ronaldo by removing a distinctive green bottle of official Euro 2020 beer sponsor Heineken, even though the product is marketed as 0.0% alcohol. Martin Kallen, Euro 2020 tournament director said UEFA has “communicated with the teams regarding this matter”, Sky Sports reports. “It is importan...

England vs Croatia: Lampard Comments on Mount’s Performance after 1-0 Win

Former England midfielder, Frank Lampard, has commented on Mason Mount’s performance following the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 1-0 victory against Croatia on Sunday. Lampard, who managed Mount during his time at Derby County and Chelsea respectively, said the midfielder’s performance for England against Croatia was classic. England defeated Croatia at Wembley Stadium, thanks to Manchester City star, Raheem Sterling’s second half goal. England vs Croatia: Rio Ferdinand hands Southgate names of players to start Euro 2021 tie “Mason’s performance all round was class, he for me is the best attacking midfielder in terms of pressing and jumping back in midfield to win the ball back,” Lampard told the BBC. Meanwhile, reacting after the game, Mount said at his post-match press confer...

Mbappe Opens up on ‘Fight’ with Chelsea Striker, Giroud

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has finally played down his ‘fight’ with Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, ahead of France’s Euro 2020 opener against Germany on Tuesday. Recall that Mbappe felt ‘attacked’ and ‘angry’ following Giroud’s comments that he was unhappy with France’s lack of cohesion in attack after France won Bulgaria 3-0 in their final Euro 2020 warm-up game last Tuesday. Reacting to the development, Mbappe, a fellow country teammate with Giroud, insisted that he was not happy with the 34-year-old’s public criticism. “I spoke with Olivier Giroud. Everyone knows what happened. It is true that I was a little affected by it,” Mbappe said at a press conference on Sunday. “But we are not going to make a big deal about it because we are here to represent F...

Moore Header Earns Draw for Wales in Euro 2020 Opener

Kieffer Moore's second-half header secured a hard-fought point for Wales in their Euro 2020 opener as they drew 1-1 with Switzerland in Baku. The Cardiff City forward had already had the best chance of the first half - forcing an acrobatic save from Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer - but Wales rode the wave of Switzerland pressure to go in level at the break. Shortly after the restart, the Swiss took advantage of their numerous set-pieces as Breel Embolo nodded home from Xherdan Shaqiri's corner. But Wales began to fashion chances and they scored in somewhat similar fashion as Joe Morrell sent in a cross after a short corner and an inexplicably unmarked Moore glanced a header past Sommer. There was late drama in Azerbaijan too as VAR ruled out Mario Gavranovic's late ...

Euro 2020: Mancini Reacts as Italy open with 3-0 win Over Turkey

  Italy manager, Roberto Mancini, has described their 3-0 win over Turkey as “an important win”. The Azzurris opened the Euro 2020 with a big-margin victory on Friday night. Merih Demiral’s own goal gave Mancini’s men the lead, before Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne added late goals. However, Mancini warned there is a long road to go until a possible Wembley final. “It was important to start well in Rome and I think it is a satisfaction for the public and for Italians. “It was a beautiful evening, I hope there are many others, but there are still six more for Wembley. “We played a good match, even in the first half without being able to score. A great team. There was a lot of help from the crowd,” Mancini said after the match played at a Stadio Olimpico....

“They are being unfair”- President Buhari replies Nigerians who claim he is soft on bandits and insurgents but hard on other criminal elements

President Buhari on Friday evening, June 11, had an exclusive interview with NTA where he quizzed on some very important national issues. When asked to expatiate on his recent statement saying those attacking security personnel and institutions would be treated in the language they understand, President Buhari said ''What I mean...How can you go to police station, kill the policemen there, loot the armoury and burn the place. What do you want to achieve? To go and open the prison and allow criminals that have been tried through the legal system to set them loose on the society. How can government sit and allow this confusion to be perpetrated? All they need is confusion and no government can allow confusion. Look at the EndSARS incident in Lagos. The previous governor of Lago...
