3 piezas por Carlo Ancelotti

Después de varias semanas de especulaciones, ayer terminó de concretarse el adiós de José Mourinho al Real Madrid una vez finalice la temporada. El presidente merengue Florentino Pérez, que también fijó las elecciones a la casa blanca para el próximo 16 de junio, también afirmó que aún no se ha elegido al que será el relevo del luso en el banquillo merengue. De cualquier modo, pocos son los que dudan que el italiano Carlo Ancelotti será el nuevo encargado de llevar la nave merengue a buen puerto. El propio entrenador transalpino reconoció hace apenas un par de días que ha solicitado al PSG poder abandonar su banquillo después de haberse alzado con la última Ligue 1. Sin embargo, el cuadro parisino no lo pondrá nada fácil, y pese a que a lo largo de los últimos días ha sido relacionado con un más que notable número de técnicos (Mazarri, Capello, Wenger, Luis Enrique, Rafa Benítez, Roberto Mancini?) quiere sacar algún tipo de contraprestación por la salida de Carletto. Así, según destaca la información publicada por el diario Marca, Nasser Al Khelaifi tan solo aceptará la marcha de Carlo Ancelotti si el Real Madrid acepta negociar por alguna de las piezas que el Paris Saint Germain tiene en el punto de mira, como son los casos de Ángel Di María, Fabio Coentrao y Pepe.

Lionel Messi habla sobre Neymar
El delantero argentino ha concedido una entrevista en Qatar donde ha repasado pasado presente y futuro dentro de F.C. Barcelona El jugador del F.C. Barcelona, Lionel Messi, ha aprovechado su viaje a Qatar para dar una entrevista a Qatar Alkass, donde ha repasado su vida deportiva pasada, presente y futura, y también aspectos extradeportivos que afectan al club español. El delantero ve con buenos ojos el fichaje de Neymar, y asegura que daría al Barcelona aspectos hasta ahora desconocidos. "No sé si al final fichará o no por el Barça, eso solo lo sabe él. Lo que sí que es cierto es que es un jugador que aporta unas soluciones individuales muy diferentes. Por supuesto que para el Barça sería una incorporación maravillosa". Le preguntaron por el futuro de su hijo, Thiago, y se sinceró al afirmar que le gustaría que fuese futbolista en el futuro: "Por supuesto que me gustaría que fuese futbolista, pero será él quien decida si quiere ser futbolista o dedicarse a otro deporte o hacer otra cosa". Respecto a su pasado, quiso agradecer especialmente a los dos entrenadores que le han marcado en su carrera deportiva, por un lado Frank Rijkaard, quíen le dio un gran empujón y confió en él: "El fue quien confió en mi cuando tenía 17 años. Fue una de las épocas más importantes de mi vida". Por otro lado, Guardiola también confió en él y le ayudó a superarse día a día. Asegura que triunfará en el Bayern de Münich: "Triunfará en cualquier equipo al que vaya, por su manera de entender el fútbol y de leer los partidos". Por último, Messi habló de la eliminación del Barcelona frente al Bayern, y fue tajante: "Fueron mejores que nosotros en los dos partidos. De todas maneras, pienso que el 7-0 es exagerado y que hubo varios factores que nos perjudicaron".
Champions League Preview: Real Madrid vs. PSG
The Champions League is back! Today's matches are highlighted by a great showdown between La Liga's Real Madrid and Ligue 1's Paris St. Germain. The teams are tied atop the Group A table with 7 points and both teams look likely to move on to the knockout rounds when it's all said and done. That said, they are fighting for the vital top spot which will decide who they play in the first knockout stage. They may both move on, but this is a hugely important match. With the match taking place at the Santiago de Bernabeu in Madrid, Los Blancos surely have the advantage. Many would consider them the better team anyway, but with the added advantage of a home crowd, Madrid are certainly hopeful. They are boosted by the return of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who has played great this season in his first as Madrid's #1 keeper, plus midfielder James Rodriguez and defender Sergio Ramos. However, they will be without normal starters Gareth Bale, Álvaro Arbeloa, and Karim Benzema. Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the lines for Los Madridistas as they look to take an advantage into the final dates of the Group Stages. For PSG, the main storyline is the return of winger Ángel di Maria to Madrid, where he spent several years growing and developing his game to the highest level. Di Maria left Madrid two seasons ago to join Manchester United, where he flopped famously. He moved on to Paris this summer and has looked great in the early stages and will surely want to prove to Madrid that they were wrong to sell him. David Luiz looks set to return after a few matches out for PSG and he will rejoin Thiago Silva at center back, making one of the most dominant pairings in all of the world. Javier Pastore and Marquinhos will not be ready to face Madrid today and PSG will have to manage without them. One of my favorite players in the world is Marco Verratti, a sensational young midfielder who is making a serious name for himself around the world. He is constantly linked with the truly massive clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid and is one of the key cogs in PSG's great form this season, as they are leading Ligue 1 by 10 points after just 12 matches. This form will have them confident that they can steal some points in what is sure to be a hotly contested affair. Predictions Despite Madrid being at home, I love the form that PSG enter the match with. While I don't think they will run away with it, I expect this to be a great match with some real end-to-end action. PSG are making a claim to be considered as one of the world's top 5 clubs and this is a great chance for them to improve that case. With Madrid at home, PSG will be cautious to commit too many men to attack. With that said, I think they can get a goal or two and make this a real challenge for Madrid. I'm saying it's going to be a game with goals. 2-2, the final. What do you think? Can PSG steal points in Spain or will Madrid do their job and walk away with a lead in Group A? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzattoni
What's with the Chinese football league?
There's something strange happening in the football world right now. Even with all the money and appeal that the world's top leagues bring - the EPL, La Liga, Germany's Bundesliga, France's Ligue 1 and Italy's Serie A, some top players have recently departed their clubs and gone to accept enormous contracts in the Chinese Super League. The latest star to make the move is Chelsea's Ramires, a player at the peak of his career at age 28. I'm stunned. There is a history of great players making the move to China, but in the past it has been players at the very tail end of their careers moving across the world to make huge amounts of money before they retire. Think Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, who in recent years went to Shanghai to play. And I understand the appeal for an aging player. Someone like Drogba couldn't keep up with the pace of the top European leagues anymore, but could still be a huge star in China, where the league quality is extremely low. They are major marketing moves for the Chinese teams too, who can bring in world superstars to boost their image. But recently, the players making the move have not been aging stars. They are players in the prime of their careers, like Chelsea's Ramires. Other players to recently make the move are Roma's Gervinho (formerly of Arsenal), who is just 28 years old and Colombia and Inter Milan's Freddy Guarin, a young midfielder of enormous quality and potential. He has been on the radar of the top EPL clubs for years, and to see him turn them down in exchange for a move to the low-level China league is shocking. Alessandro Diamanti, Momo Sissokho, Demba Ba and Paulinho are other players who have recently moved from their European clubs to play in China under huge contracts. It's a bizarre phenomenon. Football in China is not known to be a very popular sport, but the Chinese owners have loads of money and are doing a good job convincing top players to come and join them. I'm sad to see exciting players like Ramires and Gervinho leave Europe, where I could watch them in the Champions League, but I'm fascinated to see what they will make of themselves in China, and to follow along to see if the Chinese league continues to pry away great talent from Europe. @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda @Bobs What do you make of this recent trend?
Champions League Review
With half of Match Day 6 in the books for the UEFA Champions League, half of the groups have been decided. Here's how it all went down on Tuesday. Group A - Real Madrid, Paris SG advance This group was never really in doubt, as it seemed a formality that big boys Madrid and PSG would advance ahead of Sweden's Malmo and pesky Shakhtar from Ukraine. Madrid finished the group in fine style with an 8-0 victory over the Swedes thanks to hat tricks by Ronaldo AND Benzema, while PSG beat Shakhtar 2-0. Group B - Wolfsburg, PSV Eindhoven advance Group B brought a true shock, as Wolfsburg beat United 2-1 to advance alongside the Dutch side PSV and send United packing. The Red Devils never really put in a complete performance in the Champions League and they paid the ultimate price, as they now enter the Euro League having finished third in the group ahead of CSKA Moscow. It's a huge disappointment for Louis van Gaal but you have to take your hat off to the Germans and PSV who fought hard and deserved to advance. Group C - Atlético Madrid, Benfica advance Atlético Madrid are one of the most consistent sides in Europe and they showed it in the group stages, losing just one match of six and finishing top in their group. They beat Benfica 2-1 today to earn the top spot. They are always a fun team to watch and I'm happy to see them advance. Galatasary finish third to enter the Euro League while Astana from Kazakhstan's dream ends here. Group D - Man City, Juventus advance Again, no real surprise here as both of these teams were heavily favored over Sevilla and Monchengladbach. City wrapped up the top spot in the group today with a 4-2 win over the German side thanks to two goals from Raheem Sterling, while Juventus lost 1-0 to Sevilla to finish second. The Italians will be disappointed to let the top spot slip away as they will not have a more difficult first round in the knockout stage, but they have only themselves to blame. What's the biggest surprise to you? Did you watch any of the matches?
