How Mourinho secretly dragged Messi to Chelsea (Part 1)

The secret of Messi’s claim to Chelsea under Jose Mourinho in 2014 is revealed in the book “Grand Hotel Calciomercato” by Gianluca Di Marzio, a transfer news reporter currently working for Sky Sports.

The first time Lionel Messi publicly asked to leave Barca in August created a stream of information that shocked the football world during the transfer period of 2020. However, the past has seen this happen more than once, it is just that they are not made public on the news.

Before the release of a contract worth 700 million euros – the only lock to help President Josep Maria Bartomeu keep Messi in Barca this year, the same clause in the old contract at 250 million euros. And in 2014, Chelsea managed to unlock this lock, to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.

The story revealed by Gianluca Di Marzio in the latest book with a very long chapter. The Argentinian striker was promised a salary of 64.5 million euros a season, to create a deal that Di Marzio described as “the biggest secret ever revealed in the transfer world”. It stems from a Spanish court accusing Messi’s family of tax evasion in 2013, a problem that depressed the Argentinian superstar, considering playing in another country.

The excerpt below is the “heavenly secret” that Di Marzio mentioned, which revealed a conversation between Jose Mourinho with Messi, alongside the participation of father Messi, Mr. Jorge and Deco, former teammates in period 2004-2008 but also played for Chelsea from 2008-2010.

The deal failed at the last minute, which Di Marzio described as “shattering like a soap bubble”, despite Messi having agreed personal terms with Chelsea. Also in this chapter, Di Marzio confirmed that Real Madrid President Florentino Perez had prepared a sack of money to convince Messi to join Real a year before the meeting with Chelsea. But the Argentine striker refused, because he did not dare to become the second Luis Figo.

Tottenham – Chelsea: Mourinho rematches Lampard (Part 1)

Jose Mourinho is at risk of losing his old game Frank Lampard for the fourth time in a row, when Tottenham play Chelsea in the fourth round of the League Cup.

Mourinho has met Lampard three times as a coach and lost all three. The first time was when Lampard led first-class team Derby County to defeat Mourinho’s Man Utd in the League Cup 2018-2019 season. Last season, Lampard returned to coaching Chelsea, and grieved Mourinho’s Tottenham both at home and away in the Premier League. It was the first time in history that a team had beaten Mourinho both games in one league season.

But Mourinho is hard to regain when Tottenham have to play three games in five days, and this is the third match. On September 27, Mourinho’s teachers and students were held by Newcastle in the third round of the Premier League. Mourinho had to withdraw Son Heung-min after the first half of that game to support the Korean striker – a factor that made Tottenham lose the victory. On the evening of October 1, Rooster will host Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League play-off round.

Compared to the value of reaching the Europa League group stage, Tottenham was forced to let go of the League Cup. Mourinho expressed: “I really want to go deep in the League Cup, but I cannot myself. Attending the Europa League gives us a better financial income. For a team like Tottenham, it is the same important factor”.

Not only a disadvantage in terms of schedule, the current Tottenham team cannot match the opponent. Chelsea has spent nearly 290 million dollars to reinforce forces this summer. Despite earning only four points after three Premier League games, equal to Tottenham, the home team Stamford Bridge is considered a force this season.

Solskjaer: Man Utd kicked slowly as a friendly

Coach Ole Solskjaer thinks that Man Utd has not yet caught up with the Premier League, due to a few friendly matches before the season.

“Man Utd did not deserve anything from losing to Crystal Palace,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “We started slowly and badly, like a friendly. Crystal Palace was kicking. It could be seen the difference in preparation of the two teams. Crystal Palace played four friendlies, and three official matches. Man Utd only played a friendly match last week. The defeat against Crystal Palace is our first official match. Man Utd lacks more preparation.

Man Utd prepared for the new season later than the rest of the Premier League, due to the Europa League semi-finals last season. When the opponents played the first round last weekend, Man Utd were friendly with Aston Villa first. And Crystal Palace beat Southampton in the first round, then lost to Bournemouth in the League Cup. At Old Trafford on the evening of September 19, Roy Hodgson’s teachers and students defeated Man Utd 3-1.

“Crystal Palace is faster and stronger than we are,” added Solskjaer. Man Utd could not continue to play like a practice kick. The next game was on Tuesday night, against Luton Town in the League Cup. We have to quickly improve the playstyle. The last performance was not worthy of the team. There are other players in the Premier League. Seven players are not on the registration list for many reasons. The number of substitutes is also large. They will probably claim to play in the next game.

Head midfielder Nemanja Matic and right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka are out of action. Young talent Mason Greenwood is not fit and only kicks the second half. Man Utd held the ball more, but the danger was in favor of the visitors.

Solskjaer also failed to accept the goal to increase the score to 2-0 by Wilfried Zaha. He said: “That penalty is heavy, too heavy. Getting the foul of David de Gea is also too heavy, as he just pushed the excellent penalty. Maybe De Gea was only a few centimeters above the line. But that’s the way it is, and I can’t say more”.

Messi quit training, did not cooperate with coach Koeman

Leo Messi continued to show determination to leave Barcelona when he was absent from the latest training session under the direction of coach Koeman.

Before the 2019/20 season, hardly anyone thought Messi could leave Barcelona. However, that is about to become a reality. The Argentine superstar sent a certified third-party (burofax) fax to Barcelona last week of his wish to leave.

However, Barcelona flatly rejected this offer from Messi. Like an act of retaliation, Messi did not appear during the medical examination and Covid-19 test before entering the new club season which took place on Sunday (August 30).

On the morning of August 31, a lot of reporters gathered in front of Barcelona’s training center to wait for Messi to appear in the club’s training session, but this superstar was still silent. According to Sky Sports, the M10 will not train with Barcelona because it feels not part of Coach Koeman’s squad.

Currently, Barcelona has not had an official announcement about Messi’s last two absences. Will the Argentinian superstar announce to leave the club or stay in the spontaneous way? If the M10 is absent with a good reason, Barcelona should disclose it to avoid misunderstanding. In contrast, Barcelona should also act to sanction the disorganized behavior of the Argentine striker.

Previously, another Barcelona player, Ousmane Dembele, suddenly quit training for no reason. The club has handled this very well with very quick updates. However, this incident does not seem so simple.

According to Sky Sports, Messi has submitted a request to meet the management of the team directly this week to resolve his future. Mundo Deportivo also revealed that M10’s father, Jorge Messi – will represent his son to meet with President Josep Bartomeu on Wednesday (September 2) to find the most peaceful solution for the parting of the century. this.

Currently, La Liga has sided with Barcelona when it denied a special clause to help Messi freely leave the Nou Camp this summer and recognized the contract break fee of both sides is 700 million euros. That is an unbelievable price for any team.

The best possibility for Messi on the negotiating table is that Barcelona agrees to let go for a reasonable price. In the worst case, the Argentinian superstar may need to take the winter transfer window to find a new park and leave after the 2020/21 season ends.

European football concussion matches in August: Waiting for Messi to fight Ronaldo (Part 2)

Juventus – Lyon (2h, 7/8, round of 1/8 Champions League round): “She dress” upstream?

This is good news for Juventus. Because after winning the 9th Serie A championship in a row, the students of coach Maurizio Sarri are showing signs of being overloaded. In the first leg, Juventus lost to Lyon 0-1, so it is necessary to add “artillery” like Dybala, along with owner Ronaldo – who was rested in the match against Roma in the last round of Serie A, to hope to reverse the situation.

Man City – Real Madrid (2h, 8/8, round of 1/8 Champions League round: Difficulties to wait

The European Football Federation allows Man City to play against Real Madrid at home at Etihad. In the first leg, Real lost 1-2 at the Bernabeu home field. Therefore, the task with coach Zinedine Zidane and his students in the rematch of the former Premier League is extremely difficult.

Real Madrid is unbeaten in 11 La Liga games when returning after Covid-19. In it, there are 10 consecutive victories and only draw the last round when champion. Therefore, coach Pep Guardiola recently warned City players to focus, if they want to win the right to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Barcelona – Napoli (2h, 8/8, round of 1/8 Champions League round): Messi angry?

In the La Liga, Barcelona was bitterly transformed by Real Madrid. If you can not conquer the Champions League, this will be a very catastrophic season for the Catalunya team.

Therefore, fans are waiting for Lionel Messi’s talent to shine, bringing Barca deep in the Champions League. Barcelona promises to have a rematch with the Italian representative is not easy, especially in the context of the two teams drew 1-1 in the first leg.

In particular, Barca is at risk of losing Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti by various problems. Clement Lenglet is also suffering from a groin injury and this makes Quique Setien coach no more options in the defense. Besides, midfielder Arthur Melo also refused to play for this team, after having signed a contract with Juventus.

European football concussion matches in August: Waiting for Messi to fight Ronaldo (Part 1)

The English Premier League and the top European leagues have ended. But this August promises a lot of great battles that fans can wait for, because of its importance.

Brentford – Fulham (1:45, August 4): The match of hundred million pounds

Fulham will face Brentford in the play-off final – the most expensive match in the world – to compete for the last ticket to the Premier League arena in the 2020/21 season. In two semi-finals, Fulham defeated Cardiff while Brentford overcame Swansea with a score of 3-2 after two matches.

The winning team in this match not only won the promotion but also earned hundreds of millions of pounds. It includes TV royalties, shirt sponsorships, pitch ads, ticket sales and many other valuable revenues only in the Premier League.

MU – LASK Linz (2h, 5/8, round of 1/8 Europa League round): “Red Devil” straight ahead

MU had won LASK 5-0 on the visitors in the first leg. Basically, the ticket to the quarterfinals of the Europa League has been in the “Reds” bag. And in this rematch, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the right to rotate the squad, keeping the strength of the pillars in the next round.

After making sure to attend the Champions League 2020/21, MU will be relieved of the psychological burden when attending the Europa League. Solskjaer’s team will only attend this tournament with the goal of winning the championship, without having to think too much about the goals for the European Cup next season.

According to the results of the Europa League branch draw on 10/7, in case of overcoming LASK, MU will meet the winning team in the Copenhagen – Istanbul Basaksehir match. If they continue to the semi-finals, MU’s opponent will be the team that continues in the Wolves / Olympiacos – Roma / Sevilla branch. It can be seen that MU’s branch is not too heavy, and they will probably go deep.

Does Ronaldo surrender to Immobile in the Golden Boot race?

Is Ronaldo surrendering to Immobile in the Golden Boot race? Do you know the answer to this question? Join us to find out the answer in the article below!

Cristiano Ronaldo considered surrendering to Ciro Immobile in the European Golden Shoe race after being silent at the Juventus match against Cagliari.

The Serie A top scorer race, as well as the European Golden Boot, are deemed to have ended after the penultimate round in Italy. While Cristiano Ronaldo was silent with Juventus, Ciro Immobile kept firing with Lazio to increase the distance.

Entering the procedural match after winning the championship, it is easy to understand that Juventus does not play with the strongest squad. Therefore, although Ronaldo decided not to rest, he also became more difficult to find the opportunity to score against Cagliari.

One notable detail is that Juventus has set its record of finishing (34) in a match in Serie A without scoring since Opta collected data from the 2004/05 season. But obviously CR7 and the teammates do not have many really dangerous opportunities.

After 90 minutes on the pitch, Cristiano Ronaldo still stopped at 31 goals and was widened by the opponent Immobile.

Before Brescia was relegated, Lazio won 2-0 and Immobile contributed a goal to raise the score to 35, officially surpassing Lewandowski (34) in the European Golden Shoe rankings.

Now Immobile with 35 Serie A goals has leveled Nordhal’s performance in the 1949/50 season and is only behind Gonzalo Higuain’s 36 goals in 2015/16.

The fact that Serie A has only one round left makes Ronaldo surrender in the race against Immobile when the difference has reached 4 goals. CR7’s Juventus meet AS Roma at home, while Lazio is still in the runners-up will face Napoli away.

Top 10 most successful Mourinho contracts at Chelsea

On this day in 2004, Mourinho officially became the new Chelsea coach. Over the two terms here, which player is his most special contract?

Jose Mourinho brought many stars to Chelsea, but not counting Petr Cech and Arjen Robben, who came under Claudio Ranieri. Below is a ranking of the 10 most successful signings of “The Special One” by Sport Bible site.

1. Didier Drogba

Chelsea will never win the Champions League if the Ivory Coast striker does not always appear in big matches. 

More than 100 Drogba’s goals have earned Mourinho 4 Premier League titles, 4, FA Cup, 3 League Cups and 1 C1 Cup. 

Drogba is considered one of the best contracts in Premier League history and is undoubtedly the best of Mourinho.

2. Ashley Cole

Cole was probably the best left-back in the world during his time at Chelsea, who was indispensable for the team in both attack and defense. Equally important, with this contract, Chelsea also weakened Arsenal.

He has only won one Premier League title but has 4 FA Cups, 1 League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.

3. Ricardo Carvalho

Carvalho followed Mourinho from Porto to become the perfect partner for John Terry, even the best center-back in the Premier League. 

Carvalho won 2 championships in Portugal, 2 in the UK and 1 in La Liga all tied with Mourinho. 

4. Michael Essien

Essien is undoubtedly one of the best midfielders in the world when he first moved to Chelsea, contributing to two Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the C1 Cup.

5. Paulo Ferreira

Ferreira also followed Mourinho from Porto and was part of the initial success with Chelsea. The defender played 214 games in 9 years at Stamford Bridge.

6. Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas may not be at his best at Chelsea but he has a better bond with Diego Costa than any modern-day duo. 

He won 2 Premier League titles with the FA Cup and League Cup while here.

7. John Obi Mikel

Mikel is a solid and reliable player for the squad that Mourinho built. He played 372 games over 10 years with Chelsea to win 2 Premier League titles, 3 FA Cups, the C1 Cup and the Europa League.

8. Diego Costa

Diego Costa played a crucial role for Mourinho to win the second term in Chelsea, scoring 20 goals in his first season in England. 

9. Florent Malouda

Malouda arrived in July 2007 and Mourinho left just two months later. However Malouda still played 228 games for the Blues, scored 45 goals, created 43 times, won the Premier League, won 3 FA Cups and the Champions League.

10. Nemanja Matic

The Serbian midfielder has won two championships with Chelsea and has occupied an exclusive position in the middle line for a long time.

Who are the 4 scientists behind Liverpool’s championship?

Liverpool’s first Premier League title was a collective effort, including the contributions of silent people.

Liverpool have won the Premier League and the people most talked about in this success are of course coach Jurgen Klopp and the players. But the historical achievement is the effort of a whole team with many people silently standing behind.

Sports Mail newspaper has revealed four anonymous heroes contributed to bring the first Premier League title for Liverpool. These are scientists Ian Graham, William Spearman, Tim Waskett and Dafydd Steele.

In particular, Spearman graduated from Harvard University and worked at the European Nuclear Research Organization. Waskett is an astrophysicist specializing in coding, Steele is a chess champion, and Graham holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University.

These are the genius minds that contribute to Liverpool’s overall success by calculating the probability of scoring through data on all the actions on the pitch such as passes, shots, throw-in, corner kicks, Direct free kick, or penalty kick.

Explaining his and his colleagues’ work, Theoretical Physics Doctor Ian Graham said: “In about 200 matches that take place over the weekend, we receive data regarding each touch. Every time a player passes the ball, we mark it and it takes about a second or so before there’s a new pass.

For matches in the Premier League we will receive data from a set of cameras installed around the stadium. This allows us to know the position of all the players on the field. In total, we get about 25 frames per second and end the 90 minutes playing around 1.5 million frames”.

Besides, the data analysis of these 4 scientists is also the basis for Liverpool to search for new stars. In the case of Naby Keita, for example, scientists have been watching this player since he was wearing RB Salzburg and RB Leipzig to advise Liverpool’s scout team.

According to the rules of the Organizing Committee, 4 unnamed Liverpool heroes will not receive the English Premier League championship medal. But their names will surely be remembered forever in Liverpool’s historic victory.
