Revealing Isco’s new stop

The Spanish midfielder will almost certainly leave Real Madrid after this season and the most potential media station for him is Sevilla.

Having been highly appreciated by football prediction experts for his potential for growth when joining Real Madrid, Isco’s position has declined dramatically over the years. This season, he is also not the priority choice of coach Zinedine Zidane for an official position in midfield. In fact, the former star Malaga has only played 11 times for Los Blancos on all fronts and only has exactly 3 appearances in the official squad. Remarkably, there has been no match for Isco used for 90 minutes.

In recent years, Isco’s public criticism of coach Zidane in front of his teammates exposed by the Spanish media has made his future at the Bernabeu even darker. Specifically, the 28-year-old star said he was unfairly treated by coach Zidane. This made the French rulers angry and quickly put him on liquidation when the January market was about to open.

However, AS has recently published that Real Madrid will not let Isco leave in January. The reason is that the Royal team has to go through a dense schedule in the near future.. However, things will be different after the season ends.

During the past time, football prediction experts have continuously speculated about the two most potential stops with Isco coming from the Premier League, where Arsenal and Everton are ready to open their arms to welcome players with bold play style. this technique. However, AS reported that Isco has now confirmed its new stop and that is Sevilla.

This source said that the reason Isco had such a choice was due to the very good relationship with coach Lopetegui. In the past, both had time to work together in Spain U20, Spain Tel and Real Madrid. The captain of Sevilla understands the abilities of his former student and sees this as an important piece in the plan to turn the Sanchez-Pizjuan home team into a new force in Europe.

To get Isco, Sevilla will likely have to accept the fee from 15 to 20 million euros from Real Madrid.

PSG suddenly fired coach Thomas Tuchel

A series of prestigious newspapers in Europe have published information that PSG officially parted ways with coach Thomas Tuchel after the final match of 2020.

In the 2019/2020 season, coach Thomas Tuchel spent the most successful year of his coaching career. The German military leader helped PSG win the treble when they won the domestic front (Ligue 1 champions, National Cup and French League Cup). However, the achievement that makes live football viewers most remember is that he brought the Paris football team to the final Champions League match. However, unfortunately PSG lost to Bayern Munich in the final.

This season, PSG had a bad start to the league. However, with their class and superior force compared to the rest of the tournament, football experts still say that the Parc des Princes team is still the brightest candidate for the French throne. In addition, Neymar and his teammates also excelled in completing the task of reaching the eighth round of the Champions League with the first place in the group despite having to share the group with Man Utd and RB Leipzig.

However, despite these results, PSG PSG does not seem to have much faith and coach Thomas Tuchel. Latest, a series of prestigious sports newspapers in Europe such as RMC Sport, Sport Bild or Sky Germany have published information that PSG officially fired the German army. This decision was passed by the sporting director of the team, Mr. Leonardo, just hours after Coach Tuchel and his students defeated Strasbourg 4-0 at home.

This is really shocking information to live football viewers, because the relationship between coach Tuchel and the PSG Board during the past time is still very smooth and the former captain Dortmund still fully received support from the the head of the club. However, many rumors that he is no longer satisfied with the star of the team like Neymar or Mbappe and this is also the biggest cause of this outcome. In addition, coach Thuchel is also said to have conflicts with sporting director Leonardo in the transfer issue. Currently, the name rumored to be sitting in the hot seat at the Parc des Princes is Mauricio Pochettino, the former captain of the Tottenham club.

Things left behind after the match Man Utd 0-0 Man City

Contrary to the expectation of the live football viewers, the Derby to Manchester was quite bland and closed without any goals.

Pep safe or shy?

Pep Guardiola has surprised live football viewers by launching two defensive midfielders, Fernandinho and Rodri, on a trip to Old Trafford. In the context of Man Utd in a mental crisis after being eliminated from the Champions League, experts believe that The Citizen can fully use to search for 3 points and win the first away win. more than 1 month. However, it seems that Pep did not think about this and it was clearly shown in the starting squad.

After the match, the Spaniard said he was satisfied with this result. Is Pep too safe or is he simply “shy” after each student received 2 defeats against the Reds last season?

John Stones is reviving

Following the excellent performance in previous matches, John Stones continued to have extremely impressive performances in the Derby match. The British midfielder is the best star of this match with 10 times to get the ball back, 1 time to save the shot from the opponent, 2 times to win in hand-to-hand disputes and to pass 96% accuracy.

In the last 5 matches John Stones played in the starting lineup, Man City kept a clean sheet. This leaves Laporte on the bench and the Stones are currently the number 1 choice next to Ruben Dias in The Citizen’s defensive centerpiece.

Desperate attempts by De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes

The two most anticipated stars of the match could not bring the desired results for their team. Kevin De Bruyne, as usual, played exceptionally well with his masterful passing ability. However, he did not receive great support from the back and when he launched a super slit, the strikers of the green shirt team were too bad.

Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes is still playing very actively as usual. However, the play of Man Utd has certainly somewhat limited the Portuguese star’s creativity.

Messi is criticized for lack of leadership spirit

Lionel Messi left for the dressing room, instead of staying in the field for interviews after Barca lost 0-1 in La Liga on November 21.

Messi declined an interview – a mandatory obligation on the part of the organizers, but that day Barca also had no veterans to replace him. Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto both injured, leaving the field from the front. Sergio Busquets stayed in Barcelona to recover. The 17-year-old Pedri, therefore, must represent Barca players to talk to the media about the team’s defeat against Atletico.

“Barca are a team without a leader, even when the game at the Wanda Metropolitano ends. They lose the game, leave the field with a low bow in boredom. But their mission is not limited to 90 minutes. ? “, AS asked. “Messi, once again, failed to show his captain’s role. On October 24, after Barca lost to Real Madrid, 19-year-old rookie defender Sergino Dest was also required to show up to the media. Barca’s dressing clearly lacks a leader, although the captain’s armband is in the hands of Messi – who demanded to leave in August “.

In the El Calsico match that Marca recalled, both captain Messi and two vice captains Pique, Busquets played. But Dest had to stand up and speak to the media, and answer in English because the 19-year-old American did not speak a single Spanish.

The fans also find it difficult to understand when a young player like Pedri must accept responsibility for the team’s defeat to the media. “It’s shameful,” commented one fan on Twitter. “The fact that Pedri has to respond to the interview says a lot about Messi’s captain’s role,” commented another fan.

In reply to the Atletico defeat, Pedri said: “Recently, we have not been doing well in attack, and the first half injury goal has affected the team. We know things like this. Absolutely possible and the team is still improving. La Liga is very long, we can completely compete for the championship.

The defeat of Atletico caused Barca to drop to 12th La Liga, with only 11 points after 10 rounds. Messi’s team is 12 points behind Real Sociedad, but less than two games.

What are the conditions for Messi to stay at the Nou Camp “as king”?

The shock that Lionel Messi created in the summer of 2020 has just subsided. The burofax that the Argentine superstar sent to Barcelona with a request to leave created a quake not only with the cule, but also with football fans around the globe.

Currently, the departure of President Josep Bartomeu temporarily helps partially resolve the case. But in fact, Messi has not yet signed a contract extension with the Catalunya team. And the possibility of “El Pulga” freely leaving the Nou Camp at the end of the 2020/21 season is still completely open.

The worrying thing for Barcelona is that since January 2021, Lionel Messi has the freedom to negotiate with any club that this player wants, including English teams such as Man City, Liverpool, MU or even. Great rival in the sky Real Madrid. Bosman’s law allows the 33-year-old player to contact any partner during the last 6 months of his contract without going through the host club.

For that reason, what Barcelona needs to do now is to convince Lionel Messi and his agent to return to the negotiating table. However, Mr. Jorge Messi, father and also the representative of “Leo” is not very interested in the plan that interim President Carles Tusquets and his subordinates are trying hard.

According to Marca’s source, Lionel Messi has come to the decision to “stay stationary” from now until the end of the 2020/21 season and then consider the future. The captain of the Catalunya team does not need to be in a hurry, as time is still supporting him.

The pro-Real newspaper said Messi’s future depends on two factors. It is his own form and the future of the club. Barcelona’s performance in the 2020/21 season will be a very important factor for “Leo” to decide on the future.

The relationship between Lionel Messi and coach Ronald Koeman is still fine. But that doesn’t make much sense, because the most important thing is still the club’s performance. This was not the period when Barca was in good shape. They lost 1-3 in the Super Classic match, currently ranked only 8 in La Liga (kicked 2 matches less than the top team Sociedad). Above all, Messi longs for the Champions League and if Barca wins, maybe he will stay.

In addition, Messi is also very interested in the new Barcelona presidential election, which will take place in the summer of 2021. Former President Josep Bartomeu pushes this team into a comprehensive crisis, in terms of achievement collective as well as the financial situation of the club.

This source said that Lionel Messi is looking forward to the return of former President Joan Laporta. This is the president of Barcelona who has a great influence on Messi’s career as well as the success of the team’s history.

Leeds crushed Aston Villa in the Premier League

Striker Patrick Bamford scored a hat-trick, helping Leeds win 3-0 today, cutting off the winning streak of Aston Villa in the Premier League this season.

Aston Villa is a phenomenon in the Premier League this season, having won all four matches. With only one point behind Everton, being kicked at the earliest in the sixth round and having home advantage, Dean Smith’s teachers and students have the opportunity to extend an impressive start, and at the top of the board for the first time since October 2001.

But Aston Villa only paralleled those dreams until the end of the first half, then collapsed before Leeds’ crazy attacking football. On the lucky night, Bamford scored all three, helping Leeds win all three points away, while himself has six in the Premier League. Away kick, but Bielsa’s students kept the ball 60%, finished 23 shots, cut only 10 shots on the home side.

In the last home game, Villa was like a hungry lion, scoring seven goals against Liverpool, but yesterday, they were just like a kitten against Leeds. The whole game, they had only one dangerous situation, when captain Jack Grealish was knocked down by Helder Costa in the 16m50 area, but both the referee and the VAR team refused to consider the penalty.

Villa played brighter after the break, but Leeds was the team that opened the scoring in the 55th minute. In a counterattack like electricity, the ball was passed into the penalty area for Rodrigo to finish. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez blocked this shot, but was helpless when Bamford kicked in. Bamford doubled his advantage for Leeds in the 67th minute with a nice shot into the top corner from outside the 16m50 area, before making the score 3-0 with another slash in the box.

Towards the end of the game, Villa became more and more depressed, while Leeds continued to create opportunities. Bamford failed to eat with a header that brought the ball into Martinez’s reach, and Pablo Hernandez hit the bar.

In the next round, both played at home, Aston Villa hosted Southampton on November 1, and Leeds played Leicester City on November 3.

When Messi was no longer unique at Barca (Part 2)

Koeman was chosen because he was a former Barca player. He is said to understand the Barca style. But the former Dutch centre-back has also left Barca 25 years from his time as a player, and 20 years on from his time as Louis van Gaal’s assistant.

Koeman has played for Vitesse Arnhem, Ajax, Benfica, PSV Eindhoven, Valencia, AZ Alkmaar, Feyenoord, Southampton, Everton and the Dutch club. He could understand Barca, but he had enough experience not to be bound to a path, to depend on any individual, including Messi.

Choosing Koeman was also part of a journey to help Barca erase Pep Guardiola’s obsession with football – which brought a lot of success, but then came back to haunt the club for years. And the way Barca tried to play more diversely under the new Dutch manager was testament.

“Barca is going to have to play like this, that…” guardiola’s subjective remarks made managers always compared, despite the fact that the player force each time is different. Barca’s present is also no longer the era of the Xavi and Iniesta.

History proves that Barca’s football, although based on ball control and the original 4-3-3 diagram, developed very diversely and flexibly, rather than relying solely on a certain path. As tactical expert Michael Cox said, when bringing Barca and the 1986 Champions League final, coach Terry Venables used the 4-4-2 diagram, with a solid defence and a line between all the workers. Despite that, the Catalonians have not boycotted their team.

Not to mention barca becoming victims of their own success, when today, the majority of the top teams talk about the way the ball is controlled with the defence rising. Even a team with no tradition with this style of play like Juventus would like to play better with Maurizio Sarri.

Guardiola-style Barca have also become outdated, with last season’s 2-8 Champions League defeat to Bayern an example. It was Bayern who developed Guardiola’s football philosophy, but later developed into a more timely face-to-face football. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are also a representative.

Pushing Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid was an attempt to clean up the dressing room, creating space for young players like Ansu Fati to develop and pave the way for a new football mindset by Koeman. What happened against Vilalrreal suggests koeman is trying to eradicate individualism at Barca and will free Messi to return to the right football he likes the most.

When given the burden of responsibility on his shoulders, most likely, Messi will be even better.

When Messi was no longer unique at Barca (Part 1)

The win over Villarreal in La Liga showed that Barca were trying to adjust their style of play, and were freed from their dependence on Lionel Messi.

In the first 20 minutes of the Villarreal match, Messi only touched the ball six times, but Barca scored twice thanks to a brace from rising star Ansu Fati, following assists from Jordi Alba and Philippe Coutinho. Ronald Koeman’s reign has started differently from at least three of his predecessors Luis Enrique, Ernesto Valverde and Quique Setien. In all three of those periods, Messi scored his first goal.

If you look closely at Fati’s two goals, it can be seen that Messi missed at least once in the first goal. When Alba received the ball at the bottom of the margin, both Fati and Messi moved closer and asked for the ball. Alba did not pass to Messi, just a few steps behind Fati. When the man cushioned the ball into the Goalkeeper Asenjo’s net to open the scoring, Messi jumped slightly as a reflex when he made the shot. Also, he was uncomfortable with his teammate’s pass.

According to statistics firm Opta, messi made only 54 passes, far behind leader Frenkie De Jong (74) and three others, Alba (73), Gerard Pique (69) and Sergio Busquets (60). Coutinho, wearing the number 14 shirt, was in fact free to play at No.10, played a role in organising the game, also passing the ball 44 times, only slightly behind Messi despite playing 20 minutes less than his team-mates.

In theory, Manager Koeman arranged Messi to play the highest in the attacking line in a virtual No.9 role, with the trio behind fati, Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann. But Messi operates wide and regularly plays lower than his three team-mates. The heat map shows that he appears most in the position behind Griezmann, who is on the right wing. Messi is still involved in the opening of attacking phases, but is no longer the one who performs the whole stage of sparking – finishing as usual in previous eras. Very often, Messi seeks to sneak into the penalty area in search of a definitive opportunity.

This was a highlight of the idea that Koeman claimed when he took charge of Barca. Off the pitch, Messi no longer has the privilege of training, resting as required by the individual, but must follow the general plan. On the field, no.10 still carries the captain’s band, and is the leader of the game, but is no longer the center of every line as before. Those moves showed that Koeman wanted Messi to be held accountable, breaking the situation of the team being overly dependent on him as before.

Hidden number Pirlo in Serie A 2020-2021 (Part 1)

Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer the focus when Juventus marches to Serie A today, because his coach, Andrea Pirlo, will have his first professional military match.

Pirlo leading Juventus is like a schoolboy and starts the new school year. When students in Italy returned to school on Monday, Pirlo also recently completed his UEFA Pro degree course. At Coverciano , he successfully defended his graduate thesis, titled “My Football”. It will soon be kept in the library of the Center , and is considered the birthplace of Pirlo’s professional military career.

The appointment of Pirlo as coach has remained a controversial decision for Juventus. Just nine days after announcing he was U23 manager, Juventus unexpectedly promoted Pirlo as first-team manager, after sacking Maurizio Sarri for his Champions League defeat.

Pirlo is compared to Zinedine Zidane, and Juventus is expecting the appearance of a “new Zidane” in Italy. But at least, the original Zidane spent two years leading Real Madrid B before taking over the first team. On the contrary, Pirlo never held a table before signing a two-year contract with Juventus, and the friendly match with Novara was his first time directing.

The beard, which was once a highlight of Pirlo on the 11-man football field, will now become a highlight on the piste road. Pirlo spoke from an active football perspective, based on a predictable ability to control the ball inspired by Pep Guardiola. But how the specific game is deployed is still curious, in a Juventus too many personality stars. Recently, Sarri up Corriere della Sera described Juventus as a “untrained” team.

Pirlo used two systems of three and four defenders alternately in a 5-0 win over Novara. It is an implication for flexible thinking of this military rulers. 11 names in the main lineup are still unknown, but surely Juve’s force is not weaker. The departures of Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain were quickly filled by Arthur, Weston McKennie, and Dejan Kulusevski. Experts in Italy are waiting to see how Pirlo will exploit Kulusevski, after the player made a strong impression at Parma last season. Statistics show that the Swedish midfielder’s third-most active range in Serie A last season – a sign that he can provide much help playing behind Ronaldo.
