After a slow start to the season, Thomas Tuchel’s reign as head coach concluded with a 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, after which he was sacked.
Premier League side Chelsea FC are keen on keeping one of the top prospects in English football at Stamford Bridge. Despite the perceived pressure from German giants Bayern Munich, the Blues believe they can convince the recently capped Three Lions man to remain in West London.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is believed to primarily want a starting role at the club but Head Coach Maurizio Sarri is not giving him as much opportunities as he would like. With several top sides keen on signing and starting the player, it makes sense for the young lad to go out and test himself.Read More »

The fans jeered at him during the 2-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. The result took Madrid to the top of the current La Liga standings, but the fans want more from their star player.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine ‘Zizou’ Zidane says he is surprised at the response from the fans over Ronaldo’s form.
“I don’t understand the jeers but at the same time, I was also jeered and it can happen. The public demands a lot from the players and the Bernabeu is special. Cristiano knows that and is not concerned by it,” said Zidane.

Chelsea’s Antonio Conte has recently talked about the great start that he and his team has been experiencing and how he has accomplished this task.

‘’I want to work with my players to improve them and to put them in the best condition. It’s important to keep the last season in our mind, when there is a difficult situation it is important to look behind to find new strength to go forward. We have started the season in the right way.’’ Chelsea’s Antonio Conte said.

A few weeks ago IkerCasillas was released from Real Madrid as he joined the Portuguese side Porto after penning a 2 year long deal. This switch ended the relationship that Casillas had with Real Madrid which extended for over 24 years.
Even though IkerCasillas was offloaded away from his childhood club, the coach of the Spanish national side Vicente del Bosque has stepped up and supported IkerCasillas as the coach said that the experienced goal-keeper will continue to play a big role with his country in the international stage.
Spain is positioned in the 2nd spot of Group C and so far IkerCasillas has been the main man in between the sticks as he has played in almost all the group stages matches of the 2016 Euro’s.
Spain’s Vicente del Bosque said: “He had worse moments last season and played almost every match for Spain hasn’t caused any problems and has been a great servant to the national team”.
The main problem that IkerCasillas will face with trying to find a regular spot in the Spanish national side will be David de Gea as his Spanish counterpart continues playing at a high level and the younger shot-stopper took center stage in Spain’s qualification match against Luxembourg as IkerCasillas was dropped to the bench.Read More »
