Bissouma vs Etebo: Midfield clash shows coaches’ different styles

The Mali star dominated the encounter at the Amex, while the Nigerian was handicapped by his head coach’s passive approach The uniqueness of the sport is somewhat typified by the analogous game plans and trends throughout 90 minutes. At times, you spot the tactical developments in the opening minutes while some matches take longer to get going for varying reasons. Brighton & Hove Albion's 2-0 success over Watford in gameweek two of the Premier League falls into the former category, without a shadow of a doubt.

Klopp Explains why he Removed Keita During First half Against Real Madrid

  Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has claimed he took off Naby Keita in the first half of their 3-1 defeat at Real Madrid on Tuesday for tactical reasons. It was only Keita’s ninth start of the season. With three minutes left in the first half and the Reds down 2-0, Klopp substituted the 26-year-old off and replaced him with Thiago Alcantara. Speaking in his post-match press conference on the Keita sub, Klopp said: “Yeah, it was tactical. These are the things I don’t like in the job. You do that and it’s like one player is responsible for the performance in the first half. “Naby was not responsible for that. He didn’t play for a while, especially not from the start. Naby was not good in the game, but to be honest I could have made a few more changes in that moment....

Chelsea vs Newcastle: Antonio Rudiger Compares Tuchel to Lampard

  Chelsea defender, Antonio Rudiger, has revealed one of the tactical differences between the club’s former manager, Frank Lampard and his replacement, Thomas Tuchel ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Monday night. Lampard spent a year and six months at the Stamford Bridge before being sacked and replaced by Tuchel last month. The Englishman was dismissed when Chelsea was in the ninth position on the Premier League table. Chelsea have enjoyed an upturn in results since Tuchel took over, with the West London club winning their last three matches to climb to the fifth position on the log. However, Rudiger believes Tuchel knows what he wants from Chelsea players and says he differs from Lampard in how he wants the club to win the ball bac...

The essence of the philosophy is not only that teams press their opponents, but that they do so with particular focus and zeal ...

U.S. international Sargent aims for ‘breakthrough’ Werder campaign

The United States international is hoping improved fitness and tactical understanding can help him build on a promising Bundesliga debut season Josh Sargent is hoping improved tactical understanding and a stronger body can lead to a “breakthrough” campaign with Werder Bremen this season. Sargent enjoyed a promising debut season for the Bundesliga club, breaking into the first-team in December and scoring a goal in his first appearance. But his promising start gave way to a lack of playing time in the second half of the year, with Sargent featuring just once in the Bundesliga after February.

Real Reason NFF Cannot Sack Rohr Revealed

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will not be able to sack Gernot Rohr easily, because of what it would cost them. Findings by DAILY POST showed that Rohr, who has one year left on his contract with the federation, has a $1million (N360m) payment clause inserted in his deal. The NFF would have to pay him that sum if he is fired before the end of his contract. Rohr led the Super Eagles to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, beating Tunisia 1-0 on Wednesday. But there have been calls for the 66-year-old to be dismissed, because of the poor style of play and what many perceive to be a lack of tactical astuteness. But NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, speaking before the Tunisia match, ruled out cutting the German loose. “He (Rohr) will remain in the job. ...

Nigeria-Senegal Friendly To Hold Behind Closed Doors

Nigeria’s international friendly game against Senegal billed for the Ismailia Stadium on Sunday will be played behind closed doors. This is because both coaches of Nigeria and Senegal have unanimously agreed on this as they hope to use the practice game to run through some last-minute tactical experiments on their respective teams. According to the media officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, the decision has been backed by the Confederation of African Football. “Both coaches agreed that the game should be played behind closed doors and this move has been backed by CAF,”Ibitoye said. “The plan is to ensure that the game is away from public view — and overzealous challenges. “The team trains twice a day and are prepared for the task of doing the country proud.” The th...

Tottenham were intimidated by Ajax, says Sissoko

The midfielder admitted his side had a slow start to the game as their opponents took the lead in the Champions League semi-final tie Moussa Sissoko suggested Tottenham were guilty of being "intimidated" by Ajax and feels overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit to reach the Champions League final would now be "even more beautiful". Ajax, who eliminated Real Madrid and Juventus in the previous two rounds, took a huge step towards reaching the decider in Madrid after Donny van de Beek found the net in London, where the Dutch club dominated proceedings early on and were perhaps unfortunate not to score more. It took midfielder Sissoko's introduction from the bench and a tactical rejig just after the hour-mark for the tide to turn, with the France international brought on after Jan Vert...

Atiku’s Withdrawal From The Debate Is A Tactical Masterstroke! – Farooq Kperogi

I’ve read commentaries that aver that Atiku’s decision to bail out of Saturday’s presidential debate in protest against Buhari’s decision not to participate in it was a tactical error. I disagree. Here is why. The presidential debate is designed to be a match--or, if you like, a push and pull-- between the defending champion, i.e., Buhari, and contenders to the title he holds, i.e., Atiku, Moghalu, Madam Oby, Sowore, and others. If the defending champion declines to thrown his hat into the ring, the entire match becomes pointlessly self-injurious to the challengers. In other words, it would have been a fatal strategic and tactical error for Atiku to partake in a potentially bruising contest with other challengers while the defending championing sits pretty somewhere unhurt. I’ve ...

‘I’m Not Worried’ – Giroud Happy To Fight For Chelsea Place

The Frenchman believes that he is ready to fulfil Blues boss Maurizio Sarri's needs up front, despite his late return from international duty Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud feels he has nothing to prove given his status as a World Cup winner and welcomes competition for places with Alvaro Morata. The 32-year-old forward has seven Premier League appearances under his belt so far this season but has failed to find the back of the net in his new role under Maurizio Sarri. Giroud returned to club duty late this summer after winning the World Cup with France in Russia and has thusly had to fight for a starting berth with Morata at Stamford Bridge. The Spanish striker has also come under criticism for his poor strike rate in recent months and has just three goals to his name ...
