DO YOU AGREE? See Why Eden Hazard Can’t Help Chelsea Like Lionel Messi

Former Chelsea midfielder, Craig Burley has claimed that Maurizio Sarri’s men cannot always rely on forward Eden Hazard because the Belgium international is not Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi. Burley said this following Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Burnley in the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge on Monday. According to him, Hazard may be having a good season at Chelsea but the team cannot rely on him to score 40 goals per season because ‘he is not Messi’. “Chelsea’s plan this season has been to get the ball to Eden Hazard,” Burley said on ESPN FC. “When that fails, the plan is to get the ball to Eden Hazard, then it’s still the same, and everybody is waiting on this guy. “He’s had a good season, but he’s carrying so much weight on his shoulders of those who haven’t performed consistently. “He’s not Messi. He’s a great player, very good player, but you can’t rely on him to get 40 goals per season.” The post DO YOU AGREE?

‘Vieira Will Become Arsenal Manager In The Future’- Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has said Patrick Vieira is destined to return to the club as manager in the future. Having taken on a youth-team role at Manchester City after hanging up his boots, Vieira took a first senior post in MLS with New York City. He then returned to his native France in the summer of 2018 at Nice. Vieira has impressed during his debut campaign in Ligue 1 and is being backed to coach Arsenal or France. “I see him as the Arsenal coach one day because I think he is too young to go directly into international football. “I think his life will go through club football. He has constructed his career intelligently and patiently. “He left when he was young, he went to New York, he is now in Nice and he has taken time to mature and learn his profession. “And something you can’t give: he has a natural charisma, he is both elegant and authoritative. “He has passed through a difficult time at Nice but he showed no signs of weakness. “It is in times of crisis you see the coach,” Wenger told Canal Football Club.

GOBE! See The 3 Man United Players Set To Leave If They Don’t Qualify For Champions League

David De Gea, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku will all consider leaving Manchester United this summer if the club failed to qualify for the Champions League, according to the UK Guardian. United were knocked out of Europe earlier in the month by Barcelona and with four league matches remaining, they are sixth in the Premier League. The Red Devils will need help from Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham to finish in the top four, especially after Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Everton. Missing out on Champions League qualification will have major consequences as goalkeeper De Gea, midfielder Pogba and striker Lukaku would all consider summer departures. Talks over a contract extension for De Gea have stalled and the Spaniard is believed to be interested in a move to Paris Saint-Germain. Pogba was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona last summer and returning Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has expressed his admiration for the Frenchman this month. Lukaku has lost his place in United’s starting line-up to Marcus Rashford and the absence of Champions League football could be the final straw for the Belgian striker. The post GOBE!

Sterling wants harsher punishment to tackle racism

Clubs should be slapped with automatic nine-point deduction and ordered to play three games behind closed doors if their supporters indulge in racist behaviour, Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling has said. Soccer authorities must adopt radical changes to tackle the menace, Sterling added, after signing a manifesto that calls for consistent and suitable punishment for racist and discriminatory behaviour. “I’d call for an automatic nine-point deduction for racist abuse,” he wrote in a column for the Times newspaper. “It sounds harsh but which fan will risk racist behaviour if it might relegate their team or ruin their title bid? “The club should have to play three games behind closed doors. That way, they lose revenue as a direct consequence of racist behaviour.” Sterling joined a number of professionals and clubs in endorsing the manifesto which also seeks more black and minority ethnic people in senior positions in soccer and no sanctions for players walking off the pitch if they encounter racism. Framed with the guidance of anti-discriminatory bodies Kick It Out and FARE and the Black Collective of Media in Sport, key points of the manifesto also include the need for media and social media to take more responsibility in tackling abuse.
