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.

Ronaldo’s fame disappeared when he left Real Madrid (Part 2)

The battle between Ronaldo and Messi has also been pushed up a new ladder during this time. Both broke a series of new steps in football history. From the number of goals, to the collective title and finally to the number of Golden Balls.

Ronaldo has it all at Real, from fame, to the number one star in football, to an unending battle with Messi, the perfect catalyst for the hyperbole of the Portuguese superstar.

What is Ronaldo at Juventus? It is the leadership of the leadership, the respect of the fans and the respect of both opponents. Juve or Italy too “good” with Ronaldo. That backfired on this big ego star.

Ronaldo does not lack money, but he lacks an opponent that will compare with him every day to push himself beyond the limits. Messi and Barca have always done that for nearly 10 years of the peak of Ronaldo’s career at Real Madrid.

Juventus with a unique position in Serie A does not have that. The defeat in the Champions League quarter-final of 2018/19 against Ajax is a testament to Ronaldo’s inability to drag the rest of the army to Juve’s aspiration to the peak of Europe.

They need a real counterweight in the domestic arena to motivate themselves, and push Ronaldo to create miracles, just like Messi and Barca have done.

Can Ronaldo get up after failure?

Without Ronaldo, Real Madrid lost to Barca 1-5 in the first El Clasico match of last season, fired two coaches after only nine months, went blank in all competitions and had to ask for help from Zinedine Zidane.

But similar to the story of the cup, Ronaldo himself was heavily influenced by leaving Real Madrid. He is no longer backed by the utopia of Los Blancos and accepts the pervasive Italians, thereby losing the edge in flashy races like the Golden Ball.

16 months after apart, Ronaldo and Real Madrid have ever realized that they both need each other to oppose Barca with Lionel Messi? That question will permanently have no answer. In football, few people like to talk about the past if they want to rise.

With Ronaldo’s personality, today’s defeat to Messi could be the stepping stone for a race to the Golden Ball 2020 starting tomorrow. The fondness of that CR7 has always helped him overcome difficulties from being a small boy to Lisbon to study football to the days of consecutive defeat against Messi and Barca at Real.
