Juventus wants to invite Zinedine Zidane to lead the club

Juventus is ready to pay coach Zinedine Zidane a salary of 7 million pounds per year to invite the French leader to lead the club in the 2020/21 season.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is said to still have an intimate relationship with Zidane, who sits at the helm of Real. In the eyes of the allianz fans, “Zizou” is also very popular, thanks to the months of dedication to the club in the period 1996-2001.

In the past, Juventus and Real have embarked on a number of transfer deals. This could play an important role in the “Zizou” recruitment plan of the Turin representative. If he goes to Italy to work, Zidane can reunite his former student Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Real to come to Juventus in the summer of 2018.

Zidane is currently under contract with Real until 2022. However, Spanish media have speculated that President Florentino Perez is considering a “big revolution” in June. He wants to change the squad, and replace the head coach. Rumor has it that Mauricio Pochettino is being targeted by “Los Blancos” to replace Zidane.

According to the Daily Mail, in order to be signed by Zidane, Juventus is ready to break the salary structure for the coach. They are expected to spend a 3-year contract, with a salary of £ 7 million per season paid to the French legend, if he joins the club. This is really a very high number.

Juventus is desperate to conquer the Champions League title. They have done everything, including bringing to Ronaldo superstar Allianz, but have not yet achieved the goal. The current Maurizio Sarri is not the one with “DNA Champions League” like Zidane. Therefore, Juventus wants to plan to bring “Zizou” to Turin.

Throughout his career, Zidane won the Champions League as both a player and a coach. Most recently, he helped “Los Blancos” for three consecutive years to dominate the European Cup between 2015-2018.

Lyon wants to score more goals in the last round against Juventus

Coach Rudi Garica aims to score more goals in the second leg, after winning Juventus 1-0 in the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League.

Lyon won 1-0 yesterday, thanks to Lucas Tousart’s only goal in the 31st minute. Unlike many games earlier in the season, Juventus lacked mobility. The visitors did not even do anything but Dybala put the ball against Lyon in offside.

Coach Lyon also did not regret because the home team could not score more goals in the first leg. “There is no regrets. The important thing is that we played well in the first half, scored and didn’t concede a goal at home,” he said.

With a small advantage of winning 1-0 in the first leg, Lyon will go to the quarterfinals if there is a goal and only lose a difference in the return leg on March 17. Meanwhile, Juventus need to win two or more goals to eliminate the risk of being eliminated early.

Juninho: ‘Nobody expected Lyon to defeat Juventus’

Lyon Sports Director Juninho Pernambucano praised the home team after the victory against Juventus in the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League on February 26.

Lyon defeated Juventus thanks to Lucas Tousart’s only goal in the 31st minute, at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. In the second half, the visitors tried to push the line up and play more actively, but did not make a difference in the attack. This match, Juventus launched a total of 14 shots but failed to once hit the goal.

Lyon’s performance against Juventus is not commensurate with what this team shows in Ligue 1. They are currently seventh with 37 points after 26 matches, 28 points behind PSG and seven points against the Champions League team in the season.

Klopp sympathized with Guardiola and the Manchester City players

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he always supports Pep Guardiola and the Manchester City players despite their ban on the Champions League.

On February 14, UEFA announced that it would ban Manchester City from participating in the Champions League for two seasons due to a “serious violation” of the Financial Equity law. This judgment is a blow to the ambition of Man City – the team has always been in the Premier League for the last two consecutive years.

As a guest on the pitch, it was a difficult game for Liverpool. They could only win a minimum thanks to the 78th minute goal of a player on the substitution of Sadio Mane. This result helps Liverpool to lift the gap with runner-up Man City table to 25 points.

The situation is completely different from last season, when the two teams compare each score – before Man City ascended the throne with a point difference. Asked about the possibility of Guardiola’s team being stripped of the Premier League title, Klopp declined to comment. “I can imagine how difficult this is for people who do sports,” said the Liverpool strategist. “You trust your colleagues. They say ‘It’s okay’, but UEFA doesn’t think so. This is not over. Now Man City have to deal with it. I don’t know what will happen next. “.

Liverpool are unbeaten during the last 43 matches in the Premier League (including last season). They are only six games behind the record that Arsenal set in the 2003-2004 season.

The student praised Klopp for being a tactical genius

After helping Liverpool win the Champions League last season, Klopp helped the Anfield team dominate the English Premier League this year. They are at the top of the table, 22 points ahead of the second team Man City and almost firmly on the championship.

Since being appointed in 2015, Klopp has revolutionized Liverpool. He directed the team to the attacking kick, putting great pressure. At this time, Liverpool is considered by many to be the strongest club in the world.

At 0:30 on Sunday 16/2, Liverpool will return to the English Premier League after a winter break. They are guests on Carwich Road’s Carrow Road. Three points will help Klopp’s teachers and students come closer to the championship.

Recent transfers of Chelsea club

Chelsea bought Ajax’s key player

Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech is set to join Chelsea for $ 49 million.

According to the Telegraaf newspaper (Netherlands), Chelsea and Ajax Amsterdam have reached a deal to transfer Ziyech in the summer of 2020. Initially, the English team wanted to buy in January 2020, but Ajax decided to keep until the end of the season.

Ziyech was one of Ajax’s most outstanding players last season, where they won the domestic double and reached the Champions League semi-final. This season, with six goals and 12 assists, the Moroccan striker remains one of the top players in the Dutch championship.

In the last Champions League group stage, Ziyech scored a beautiful free kick against Chelsea. This urged coach Frank Lampard to turn him into the first player he bought after a year of leading the English team.

Ziyech joined Ajax in 2016, from Twente. In 159 games played for the Dutch team, he has 48 goals and 82 passes to clear the deck.

Before Ziyech, Ajax sold Frenkie De Jong to Barca and Matthijs De Ligt to Juventus. The departure of many stars made the former European champion quickly decline. From last season’s semi-finals, Ajax were eliminated in the Champions League group stage this season and came down to play in the Europa League.

Chelsea recruited former Heerenveen player

Chelsea Club paid 44 million USD for Ajax to own winger Hakim Ziyech, since July 2020.

Chelsea also confirmed the recruitment of 27-year-old players. “The two clubs have agreed to transfer Ziyech this summer. The deal is only pending on personal terms, and Ziyech will remain with the Dutch team for the remainder of the current season,” the notice posted on the home page. The English club has a paragraph.

Ziyech was born on March 19, 1993 in Dronten, Netherlands. He is the youngest of nine children. Ziyech’s father died of cancer, when the player was only 10 years old. Ziyech mother – Moroccan – raised the children themselves. Ziyech started playing football at the age of five. He grew up in Heerenveen’s training room.

Ziyech started his career at Heerenveen (2012-2014), then went to Twente and landed at Ajax in the summer of 2016. He scored 47 goals in 157 matches for Ajax, helping the Dutch club to win the National Championship in 2019. Ziyech four the most assists of the season, and won the title of “The best player in the Netherlands” in 2018. Ziyech is also the best pass in Europe since the 2017-2018 season, based on the number of assists created.

What should coach Solskjaer do to solve the problems on MU attack?

MU attackers are on alert when they can not score in 3 consecutive matches in the Premier League. Solskjaer coach needs to make changes soon.

In the last 3 matches in the Premier League, MU only won one point. They lost to Liverpool 0-2, lost to Burnley 0-2 and drew 0-0 against Wolves. MU had the opportunity to shorten the gap with the top 4 when Chelsea repeatedly lost points, but they did not take advantage. Even now they are pushed down to 6th place.

Martial is bringing frustration when he takes the role of leading the public in place of Rashford.

This is the result of poor competition. Without Marcus Rashford, the “Red Devils” were powerless to shake the net. After the score with Wolves at Old Trafford, MU striker Anthony Martial received many criticisms from the former Premier League players.

In the match against Wolves, Martial did not even launch a single shot despite playing the full 90 minutes. The most definitive player on the MU side was midfielder Bruno Fernandes with 5 appearances. In addition, he repeatedly signaled to his teammates to actively move.

Besides, the ability to coordinate the middle of MU also does not show the effectiveness. The people who create the most opportunity to finish teammates are Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Naturally, those opportunities came from the cross-field phase or cross the ball from the two corridors.

According to Ian Wright, Coach Solskjaer can consider using young talent Greenwood. The striker born in 2001 has scored 10 goals in all competitions this season. Long shot from Greenwood can bring goals for MU when confronting teams that organize the defense closely.

In addition, MU has another choice on attacker is rookie Odion Ighalo. He played in the Premier League in Watford and scored 16 goals. The Nigerian striker once won the best player of the month in December 2015.

However, Ighalo has turned 30 and his ability to integrate into the Premier League is still a question mark when he returns from the much lower level league.

On February 18th, MU will be a guest at Stamford Bridge of Chelsea. This is an important match for the race to win the Champions League. The long holidays will be very valuable for teachers and coaches Solskjaer.

The Norwegian strategist needs to be more calculated and prepared to avoid ineffective and assertive substitution. In the Wolves confrontation, he threw Lingard or Dalot on the field in the 87th minute. The remaining time was too little for them to bring efficiency.

Man Utd borrowed a striker from China

Man Utd borrowed Odion Ighalo, a 30-year-old striker from Shanghai Shanghai Bodybuilding on a six-month contract.

The deal was finalized in the last few hours on January 31 – the last day of the mid-season transfer market. According to the BBC, the contract has no terms for a definitive purchase.

Ighalo is training with Shanghai to prepare for the Chinese League (CLS) for the new season. But on January 30, the tournament announced an indefinite delay in the start of the corona virus pandemic.

Ighalo is one of many foreign stars fleeing from CSL on this occasion, both to avoid the risk of infection, and to seek opportunities to compete, maintain the style. The Nigerian striker will fly to England on February 1 to complete personal terms and medical checks.

According to Sky Sports, Man Utd must compete fiercely with Tottenham to be able to borrow Ighalo before the transfer market closes. And Ighalo’s love for Man Utd is seen as an important reason to help them win this race.

Talent of Odion Ighalo

Ighalo has played in the Premier League, scoring 40 goals in 100 matches with Watford in every arena from 2014-2017. In January 2017, the striker went to China to wear Changchun Asia shirt for a $ 26 million transfer. After Changchun relegated, Ighalo continued to stay in CSL, playing for Than Hoa Shanghai from February 2019, scoring 10 goals in 19 appearances last season.

At the national team level, Ighalo makes a stronger impression. He is the top scorer in the 2019 African Championship qualifiers with seven goals. In the final round on Egypt, Ighalo contributed five goals, winning the top scorer. After helping Nigeria win a bronze medal, he announced the end of his international career.

Ighalo is Man Utd’s third rookie in January 2020. Earlier, midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon on January 29 in a deal worth $ 62 million. On the same day, January 31, just a few hours before Ighalo was borrowed, Man Utd bought goalkeeper Nathan Bishop from Southend United.

Ighalo will help coach Solskjaer reduce headaches in the middle position, where Marcus Rashford takes a three-month injury.

Barca jumped into the race to get Eriksen, Conte joined Inter

Barca jumped into the race to get Eriksen

After Inter, Barca wanted to recruit Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen in the transfer window in January.On January 20, Eriksen met Tottenham President Daniel Levy and reaffirmed his desire to join Inter.

The two clubs have yet to find a consensus on the transfer fee, but the individual terms are said to have been completed.

However, according to Sky Sports (UK), Barca interrupted. The Nou Camp team is interested in the Swedish midfielder and plans to recruit him as a free agent in the summer. But, they changed their plans and wanted Eriksen right this transfer window.

Eriksen is valued at about 22 million USD, but Inter only wants to pay 14.5 million USD. In a recent statement, Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta was optimistic. “It’s a great player. We are waiting and still confident in the success of this deal,” he said.

Eriksen has played 28 matches for Tottenham in all competitions this season, but has only scored twice in the Premier League.

Conte joined Inter

Winger Victor Moses reunited coach Antonio Conte when he joined Inter on a loan deal from Chelsea on January 23.

Moses only plays for Inter in the second half of this season, before the parties involved consider a more sustainable plan.

The Nigerian was a pillar of Chelsea under Conte to win the English Premier League in 2017. But after his teacher left, Moses was not used by the next coach Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard. In the past year, the 29-year-old winger went to Turkey for a Fenerbahce shirt on loan.

Chelsea had just summoned Moses, after Inter had asked him to borrow him in early January. Before Inter’s launch ceremony on January 23, Moses went out to dinner with his new teammates. A photo taken at this meeting was striker Romelu Lukaku posted on social networks from January 22.

Moses is the fourth player to leave the Premier League to join Inter this season, after Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez in the summer of 2019 and Ashley Young recently. In the new shirt, Moses will most likely be the main stone in the right wing position in the favorite 3-5-2 diagram of Conte.

Inter are second in Serie A, four points behind leaders Juventus. This Sunday, Conte teachers and students will receive Cagliari.

Coach Allegri is like the obsolete man of European football (Part 3)

Allegri personally believes that each club and city has its own identity especially, and his job is to integrate with that rather than imposing alien ideas.

Football in him is “a collective game shaped by individuals”. He also watches basketball a lot because he likes the way an individual on the field can shine.

However, Allegri doesn’t really think that small-scale tactics in basketball can be applied to football. “Football is an art,” he added. Because he did not completely believe in digitized data fragments, he did not use computers. He did not have a computer in his home, although his time at Juventus gave him an iPad.

According to Allegri, the notion that “to be able to watch the whole game, a coach should be positioned in the stands rather than outside the boundary line, where you smell sweat and see fear” is one of football village’s greatest lies.

He especially underestimated the way in which the Italians “put” their tactical elements as well as their “game-binding” policy. He could not understand why the experts at Coverciano (referring to the Italian Football Federation) asked the coaches to focus on the stereotypical system instead of conveying the message, capturing the game. “Feeling is a prerequisite,” he asserted.

After watching matches from all over Europe for the past few months, he was impressed by Liverpool, and praised Jurgen Klopp, the captain who changed the face of the team.

Allegri also likes Guardiola’s Man City. He was impressed by the old club Cagliari when they competed fairly for a ticket to the C1, and commented that Atalanta’s style of football – the team that reached the 1/8 round of the Champions League.

It would be fascinating to believe that in June next year, Allegri would return to current flow of current views on tactics, philosophy and systems. Attractive, but also wrong. The talented captain returned, only because he wanted to “breathe” again.

He now spends time in art, reading, traveling and enjoying life. He also enjoyed drawing. Looking at the tactical plan he outlined, we might think that solving the paper problem is done. But with Massimiliano Allegri, removing the knot on the pitch is the best feeling.

Coach Allegri is like the obsolete man of European football (Part 2)

“I read a lot of books,” he said, mostly in the thrilling genre. He also read through a piece about artist Amedeo Modigliani, which urged him to attend an exhibition in London. “I’m just spending time with my family and friends and enjoying life.”

Allegri is really strange. Because when interviewing a football coach, all you are waiting for is football. But Allegri did separate himself completely from the vibrant world of the ball.

In another interview with ESPN, Allegri also called tactics “rubbish” because he believed that people are the decisive factor in the success or failure of a football match.

He does not believe in numbers, he is not a fan of machines. He believes in signs more than data. He believes that there are things only people, not any state-of-the-art machine, can see. Yet a man who seemed to be lost at that time was one of the most respected coaches in Europe.

Allegri is a great leader with six Serie A titles and two appearances in the Champions League final. He was one of 12 people invited to the UEFA Coach Forum in November, and the only guest … unemployed in the hall.

Reputation is more than enough for him to casually choose a time and a place to continue training. You can choose any club you like, as long as from June onwards. “After 5 years with Juventus, I don’t want to return to my career with a bad face,” he said. “This is an important option”. He wants to lead a well-disciplined and organized team.

Allegri did not want to bet against an incompetent team. In the past few months, there have been many rumors about whether he will take over Arsenal, Man Utd, Bayern Munich or PSG. Along with Mauricio Pochettino, he is one of the two most sought-after unemployed coaches in the world of football.

The 1967 birth strategist is a man with a strong anti-cultural ideology. He goes against the view that modern coaches must be more talented philosophers than people, always imbued with the thoughts of the fans as well as the media.

28 coaches were dismissed in five major leagues this season

After the first half of the season, many clubs in La Liga, the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 lost their patience with the coaches.

At the five biggest national championships in the world, the clubs fired 28 coaches, up 18% from the 23 coaches at the same time last season.

Serie A has many coaches losing the most in the first half of this season, with 9 people. The Italian championship is not really famous for long-time coaches, but the presidents are tending to be more aggressive than usual. The nine dismissed coaches are also the biggest number of Serie A since 2012.

Premier League ranked second, with six coaches losing their jobs. Compared to the same period last year, this number is more than twice.

La Liga came in third, with five coaches losing their jobs. In the top five leagues, La Liga is the only league with fewer coaches losing jobs than the previous season.

The Bundesliga and Ligue 1 both had four coaches dismissed. In particular, Bayern is the only national champion in five major tournaments to dismiss the coach.

The dismissals had some certain influence. For example, AC Milan is no longer the same after Ancelotti left. Apart from the 2011 Serie A championship won with Max Allegri, the red and black striped shirt has no title to compare with Juventus and the big teams.

The team has won the European Cup C1/Champions League seven times even many seasons do not attend the European Cup, due to the decline in performance and violations of the Financial Fair law.

At the beginning of the 2019-2020 season, also due to poor performance, AC Milan had to fire coach Marca Giampaolo. New coach Stefano Pioli has improved, but has only won one in five matches.
