SURPRISE SURPRISE! Atletico Madrid v Villarreal To Be Played In The United States Of America (See Details)

La Liga have asked the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for permission to hold December’s match between Atletico Madrid and Villarreal in Miami. Both clubs have agreed to the proposal to hold the 6 December fixture at the Miami Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium. La Liga previously failed in an attempt to move Barcelona’s meeting with Girona to Miami in January. The RFEF and the players’ union (AFE) were both vocal in objecting to the move on that occasion. La Liga signed up to play one game a season in the US as part of a 15-year deal with media company Relevent in 2018. Relevent chairman Charlie Stillitano began a legal case against US football authorities in September, after the United States Soccer Federation blocked the company’s plans to host games in the US. La Liga president Javier Tebas said: “This match would be a further push in La Liga’s internationalisation strategy, which is giving all clubs good results. We believe that on this occasion, we will be able to carry out this positive opportunity for everyone, like they already do in other leagues like the NFL and the NBA, outside of their borders.” The post SURPRISE SURPRISE!

LEAVE ME ALONE! Mesut Ozil Blasts People Criticising His Performance In Big Games

Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil has hit back at those who continue to suggest that he goes missing in big games. The German World Cup winner has seen his consistency being questioned throughout a spell in north London, especially when the Gunners face fellow heavyweights. However, Ozil believes he is being unfairly singled out when it comes to such showings, saying it is impossible for him alone to carry Arsenal against opponents that are stronger than them. Speaking on claims that he struggles to perform when it matters most, the Arsenal playmaker told The Athletic Magazine: “It always happens that an ex-player stands there on TV and criticises me. Others just continue the theme and it gets in everyone’s heads. “If we don’t do well in a ‘big’ game, it’s always my fault. If that’s true, how do you explain our results in the ‘big’ games when I wasn’t involved? There’s no real difference. I know people expect me to offer more, dictate play and make the difference – I do, too – but it’s not that straightforward. “I’m not the only player in the team and, don’t forget, some of our opponents are simply better than us. Also, what is a ‘big’ or ‘small’ game? In the Premier League, anyone can beat anyone. Look at Wolves and Norwich beating Man City, or Newcastle and West Ham beating Man United....

Ex Super Eagles Captain, Mikel Obi Reveals Two Major Reasons He Retired From Super Eagles

Former Super Eagles Captain, John Obi Mikel, has revealed two major reasons he decided to retire from international football. Mikel left the Super Eagles shortly after Nigeria came third in the last Nations Cup in Egypt. Now with Trabzonspor in Turkey, the midfielder said the first reason was to pave way for younger players and the need to soft-pedal since he no longer has many years of football ahead of him. Mikel has spent close to two decades of romance with the round leather game. He also expressed confidence in the present crop of Eagles, noting that the players are not only talented but determined to excel. The former Chelsea midfielder stated this in a chat with Trabzonspor’s official magazine. ”We currently have very talented young players. They’re all bright. I think these players can handle the challenges. I had to make room for them, besides; I don’t have many years for football in front of me. I want to focus on my team in the remaining period, “ he said. ”I served the national team for 13 years, most of them as captain. In this period, we achieved significant successes as a team,” he said.

HE IS BACK! Arsenal Striker Lacazette Could Face Sheffield United After Return From Injury

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has returned to full training following an ankle injury and could face Sheffield United on Monday, the club has confirmed. The French forward hasn’t played since Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham on September 1, with the club having revealed he would be given time to “rest and strengthen his ankle to regain full fitness.” Arsenal have risen to third in the Premier League by going unbeaten in four Premier League games during Lacazette’s absence, but the 28-year-old’s return will provide a boost to the club’s ambitions of a top-four finish. “Alex is progressing well and is back in full training,” a club statement said. “Decision on his participation for Monday’s match at Sheffield United will be made in the forthcoming days.” Despite playing through the left ankle issue during the opening weeks of the season, Lacazette managed to score two goals in his three appearances, including a goal against north London rivals Spurs.

BREAKING!! Allegri Finally Speaks On Becoming Man United New Manager

Massimiliano Allegri has poured cold water on speculations, that he was set to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager. With the Red Devils making their worst-ever start to a Premier League season, pressure is beginning to mount on Solskjaer at Old Trafford. Allegri’s name has quickly emerged as a possible replacement. The Italian, who is currently without a job after leaving Juve, claims his English skills are not yet up to scratch for a job at Old Trafford. “I don’t speak English enough yet, but I’m learning,” Allegri joked while speaking at the Football Coaches Association symposium via Przeglad Sportowy. While eager to improve his English, Allegri went on to highlight that he is a coach that listens more than he speaks. He added: “There are two ways to be a good trainer: authoritarian and liberal. I prefer the latter, so I listen more than I speak. “Thanks to this strategy, I receive more information from the outside that positively changes my world. I still deny the validity of my ideas. I argue with myself. “If I think that something is 100 per cent good, I am worried and consult on this opinion with the people around me. “When I came to Turin after Antonio Conte, many thought I was screwed. That Juve is burned out. That the winning stage is over because...

The American was put into a coma on Saturday after he was knocked out in the 10th round of his super welterweight bout in Chicago. Promoter Lou DiBella confirmed Day had died on Wednesday “surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team”. “He was a son, brother, and good friend to many,” said a statement. “Pat’s kindness, positivity, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met.” Day was taken from the ring on a stretcher after the conclusion of the fight on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk’s heavyweight victory over Chazz Witherspoon in the US. “Patrick Day didn’t need to box,” the statement from DiBella Entertainment continued. “He came from a good family, he was smart, educated, had good values and had other avenues available to him to earn a living. “He chose to box, knowing the inherent risks that every fighter faces when he or she walks into a boxing ring.

‘I Am Going NOWHERE’- Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil Tells Everybody

Mesut Ozil has moved to quash rumours that he will leave Arsenal during a period of uncertainty, insisting that the Emirates is his “home” and that he will honour his contract that runs through until the summer of 2021. Ozil, one of the highest profile signings the Gunners have made in recent history, has found playing time hard to come by under new boss Unai Emery, with the World Cup winner used sparingly despite being the club’s top earner. Emery made waves recently when telling the press that Ozil had not been selected for his squad due to other players being “more deserving” of making the grade. Such talk led to rumours that the club would be taking steps to offload the playmaker and free up a significant portion of funds in order to make new signings, but the 31-year-old made it plain that he has no intention of leaving his London home. “No,” Ozil told The Athletic regarding the exit rumours. “I have a contract until the summer of 2021 and I will be staying until then. “When I signed the new deal, I thought about it very carefully and said it was one of the most important decisions of my footballing career. I didn’t want to stay for just one or two more years, I wanted to commit my future to Arsenal and the club wanted me to do the same. “You c...
