There are reports that Welsh bosses could lure either of Craig Bellamy or Ryan Giggs to join the coaching crew and help train the current set of youth players.

Both Wales football legends would definitely be a coup if they agree to join current manager Chris Coleman in a bid to eventually take over the team.

For Welsh football, it is a norm for something to pop up and spoil the joy when things start going well for the national team. After Coleman cemented his name in the record books by leading the team to the semi final of the Euro 2016 in France, he is sure to be upset that one of his trusted aides Geraint Williams would lose his seat as age-grade chief. There are even reports that any of the aforementioned legends might replace him – which he might not sanction.

Whilst the Welsh FA seems to be setting up a succession policy, the move may not sit well with Coleman. There are indications that the Welsh manager might not remain after the 2018 World Cup, so his employers are merely planning. The FA executed the recommendation of the FAW international committee that Williams was not the best to manage the teens anymore. Continue reading →

Juan Mata Dismisses Past Rift with Jose Mourinho

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has dismissed any speculation of a rift between him and manager José Mourinho in the past.

The Portuguese was in charge of Chelsea when the club sold Juan Mata to Manchester United for £37 million. The move was widely criticised largely because Mata was one of the best players at Chelsea back then. The Spaniard has never really hit the same heights since his move to Old Trafford, but there are signs of resurgence in the last few months. United have never managed to lose a game when Mata has been part of the starting line-up.

This statistic is likely to lead Mata regaining his first-team spot, but under Mourinho. The Portuguese is going through a difficult spell where almost every decision has been questioned. United have struggled heavily in the league despite spending yet another £ 150 million on new players. The club has been going through a period of heavy spending for the last three consecutive summers as they try to bring back the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson. Mata has opened up on his departure from Chelsea and claims that most of the speculation about a fallout with Mourinho were widely untrue. Continue reading →

Stoke City set to miss out on Bryan Dabo

Stoke City may miss out on Bryan Dabo with the Montpellier player choosing to join French side St Etienne instead.

The Potters was interested in signing the midfielder for a fee of around £1.5m, but it seems that the player has favored to stay in France. It is believed that other Premier League sides such as Everton, Swansea and Sunderland were also interested in the 24-year old player.

Bryan Dabo joined Blackburn in 2014 but failed to make an appearance for the side. But the player has massively improved last season and his good form with Montpellier has prompted many clubs to make inquiries for the player.

Stoke City, who are keen to strengthen their team ahead of the new season, are interested in signing a new midfield player and would have felt that Bryan Dabo will make an excellent addition to the team.

It is also reported that Stoke City might be interested in signing England U21 winger Nathan Redmond from Norwich City. Southampton were also reported to be interested in the player but with Ronald Koeman leaving the team, we will have to wait for the new manager to find out whether they will make a move for the player.

Stoke City will want to take advantage of this situation and persuade Redmond to sign for them. Norwich, who has been relegated from the Premier League, will know that they will not be able to hold on to the player any longer and would want to have the best possible price for the player.

Manuel Pellegrini is confident in the goal-scoring abilities of Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling was signed by Manchester City on July of the ongoing year for a transfer fee of €49 million and ever since then, Sterling has turned into a constant starter for the Premier League club as Manuel Pellegrini wants to utilize the services of the player most expensive Englishman ever in the history of football as much as possible.

During Sterling’s time in Anfield, he managed to score 23 goals in 129 games for Liverpool and the Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini is certain that Sterling will be able to score goals than he ever did before in his entire career.

Manchester City voiced his confidence in Raheem Sterling as he said: “I am sure he will score more goals than he did before. I think that he will be a very dangerous player. Maybe we were criticized for the amount we paid for him but I am sure he will demonstrate during the year, especially against the big teams, why he was valued so much.” Continue reading →

Manchester United have been an excellent run of form in the last two months

Manchester United have been an excellent run of form in the last two months after suffering just one defeat – against Southampton at home – during this period.

This form has seen them maintain their fight for a top four spot, although the possibility of winning the title looks to be beyond them. Even though the team has been achieving results, United have been criticised for their poor style of play. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was quite open with the criticism, as he blamed United for the long ball tactics that led to a 1-1 draw between the two clubs recently.

United have been regarded as one of the most attractive teams to watch in England. This is after years of playing attacking football under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson. Due to certain limitations in defence, Van Gaal has had to adopt a different set of tactics. He is also thought to be unhappy with the striker’s in the squad. This has led to the club playing a different style of football and defender Jonny Evans has admitted for the first time that the club need to improve a lot if they are to begin their past status. United have been defeated only once in the last 19 matches of all competitions. Continue reading →
