Serie A season 2020-2021 will be a great challenge for Pirlo

With wet feet to power at Juventus and not having much experience, Andrea Pirlo is expected to face many difficulties in Serie A in the 2020-21 season.

In the 2020-2021 season, Juventus has made a big change on the coaching bench. Instead of continuing to trust coach Maurizio Sarri, the Turin giant decided to put his faith in Andrea Pirlo. This is considered a bold and risky decision because Pirlo has never had any experience in coaching.

Even a few days before the opening round of Serie A 2020-2021, Andrea Pirlo received a training license. That is a great challenge because between the idea and reality are two completely different things. A good player does not necessarily turn into a talented coach.

Pirlo in the first season to lead Juventus

Talking about his ideas, Pirlo confirmed that he would choose to play attacking in the style of imposing and controlling the ball. The role of the Juventus midfield becomes very important. However, last season, this was the weakness of the champions of Serie A.

But that was too little for Juventus to create a breakthrough in gameplay. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic made Lao She unable to spend heavily to reinforce her forces. In the remainder of the summer market this year, the Serie A champions may only welcome one more striker to replace Higuain, who recently moved to the US to wear Inter Miami.

Pirlo is expected to have many difficulties in the first season to lead Juventus

Juventus has had 9 consecutive seasons of dominating the Serie A championship race. Andrea Pirlo’s minimum mission is to win the 10th Scudetto title. It is also the pressure placed on the shoulders of the former Italian midfielder.

Inter Milan is the biggest challenger to Juventus in the Scudetto race

In fact, in recent seasons, Juventus has not won the Scudetto as easily as before. They faced strong resistance from many competitors. Without saying that, in Serie A last season, Juventus was crowned, but only 1 point more than Inter Milan. This is the biggest challenge for Pirlo teachers and students this season.

In preparation for the toppling of the Juventus throne, Inter Milan had a significant addition of force with Achraf Hakimi (Real Madrid), Aleksandar Kolarov (Roma). Also, the Nerazzurri also bought off Alexis Sanchez. Most importantly, Coach Conte has kept top stars like Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez.

Messi had to take a season off to leave Barca for free

After Man City was not interested in spending money to buy Lionel Messi, Barca captain’s door to leave Camp Nou was significantly narrowed.

The source of ESPN said that the only way for Lionel Messi to legally transfer from Barca in the summer of 2020 is to commit not to play football for any team during the 2020-2021 season.

Do everything to leave Barca, but Messi is gradually at a disadvantage

According to legal experts, the unilateral contract termination clause that Messi mentioned in the fax sent to Barca on August 25 can be understood in many ways. If the two parties do not negotiate and find a common voice, they can only use legal arbitration in court.

Last weekend, La Liga representatives said that they had approached the contract signed between Messi and Barca in 2017. La Liga leaders confirmed that the contract break fee worth $ 830 million (equivalent to 700 million euros) is still valid.

At the same time, he emphasized that he will not issue a transfer permit to Messi if the fee is not paid in full, or the owner of the Camp Nou has not agreed to let the captain leave.

Being the one who actively suggested to leave, but Messi was gradually in a weak position. In addition to being stripped of his privileges by Barca and not giving in to the transfer issue, the 33-year-old striker was also turned around by Man City.

Previously, Messi have just invited Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020. However, due to financial pressure, Guardiola’s team was only able to pick him up for free, instead of activating a financial package totaling $ 300 million.

According to arguments from Barca and La Liga, Messi is still on the payroll of the Catalonia team, instead of a free player as he thought. Failure to test for coronavirus and the scheduled assembly on August 31 could cost the Argentine superstar a fine of more than a million dollars.

Messi and the legal team are still trying to find a way to leave Barca, based on the term of being free to leave the club at the end of each season. But Barca said this term expired in June 2020.

Parallel to the request for an extension, Barca made more tough moves. The Catalonia team is composing a letter to reply to Messi’s fax and announced that he did not attend the training trip before the 2020-2021 season. They also asked Messi to review the offer to leave Barca or continue to contribute to the team.

Messi invited Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020

Lionel Messi is said to have called to invite former teammate Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020.

The information was revealed by Jorge Nicola, reporter watching the Brazilian region of sports television channel ESPN, revealed on August 26th, 2020.

Messi and Neymar played successfully at Barca before the Brazilian moved to PSG in the summer of 2017 for a record of $ 263 million. A new life in Paris is sometimes not favorable, so Neymar has repeatedly expressed that he wants to return to Barca.

Messi is always excited about the opportunity to reunite, but the financial burden makes Barca’s leadership unable to meet. This is believed to be one of the reasons why Messi is dissatisfied with President Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Messi once again expressed his desire to work with Neymar again

Currently, Neymar has two years of contract with PSG. The 28-year-old striker has also just had a successful season with his home team reaching the Champions League final and winning three domestic titles. Therefore, Neymar is not sure to change the club at this time.

PSG has also repeatedly stated that Neymar is not for sale. Therefore, Man City can only achieve the goal if it spends a large amount of money to break the contract. But this possibility is unlikely after they were “touched” by UEFA for violating the Financial Fairness Act in February.

Currently, Messi still holds the point of leaving Barca. He is said to have called his former teacher Pep Guardiola to discuss his move to Man City.

Financial risks for Man City if Messi is recruited

According to Mundo Deportivo (Spain), the Financial Justice Law can be a big obstacle to Man City if it intends to buy Lionel Messi.

Under the Financial Fairness Act (FFP) established by UEFA in 2011, clubs must not spend more than they earn. This is to control financial losses, salaries, and transfer costs, while also limiting the imbalances between clubs.

With clubs participating in the Champions League and Europa League, the Association of European Football Clubs (ECA) applies a ceiling of $ 118 million in deficit in a transfer window, in addition to the regulation that no more than $ 53 million in losses in three years. main closest. Each team’s balance sheet must be checked by UEFA’s Financial Checking Committee. Bank debts and player wages are closely monitored by UEFA.

Real player received 4 Cups with just 10 matches

Alvaro Odriozola, a full-back on Real’s payroll but on loan to Bayern, has won four titles since early 2020.

Odriozola won four titles in the 2019-2020 season

Growing up from the Real Sociedad furnace and joining Real summer 2018, Odriozola was a potential defender of Spanish football. He reached the 2017 European U21 final with Spain and was called up to the team since 2017 when Julen Lopetegui as a coach.

Odriozola made 22 appearances in the first season of 2018-2019 with Real. But into the second season, things went wrong for the 1995 defender from a red card in a defeat to Real Mallorca in October 2019. After this match, Odriozola was forgotten by Zinedine Zidane, although it cost Real a transfer fee of 35 million USD.

The last time Odriozola played for Real was a 3-1 victory over Brugge in the last round of the Champions League group stage. In the previous five games in the Champions League, the 24-year-old defender made only one appearance on the bench and four games unregistered. The match against Brugge was the Spanish defender’s fifth match since the beginning of the season.

In an attempt to save his career, Odriozola accepted a move to Bayern Munich on a half-year loan agreement. However, his playing time has not improved with just five times on the pitch, with three replacements.

Alvaro Odriozola qualifies for the medal with four games in La Liga

With four games in La Liga for Real, he qualifies for the medal. The same thing happened at Bayern. Odriozola has been on the medallist in both domestic competitions, although only on the pitch three times in the Bundesliga and one at the DFB Pokal (National Cup).

Last Saturday, Odriozola replaced Joshua Kimmich in about 20 minutes of the second round of the return leg against Chelsea in the Champions League and provided Robert Lewandowski with a 4-1 victory. Bayern reached the quarterfinals, and if they won the title in Lisbon, Odriozola would have won the treble.

In total, after 10 appearances for the 2019-2020 season, Odriozola received four titles: a La Liga, a Bundesliga, a DFB Pokal, and a Spanish Super Cup – where he did not play but was registered by coach Zidane. On average, Odriozola won a title after 153 minutes of play.

Full of title, but Odriozola’s future is blurred. Bayern did not intend to extend the loan agreement of the Basque defender, and Real also had Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, and Nacho playing the right-back.

Iker Casillas goalkeeper retired after 21-year career

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas announced to put a stop to his illustrious 21-year playing career.

In 2019, Casillas suffered from heart disease and had intended to retire that same season. However, the Real Madrid legend struggled and declared to hang up his gloves after the 2019-2020 season ended.

Leaving aside his illustrious career, Casillas is expected to spend a lot of time in the competition for the chair of the Spanish Football Federation, his intention to have been in February 2020.

Casillas held a gold cup at the 2010 World Cup

Born May 20, 1981 in Madrid, Casillas was the product of the Castilla training furnace before he joined the team in the 1999-2000 season. The opportunity came with Casillas when the number one Real goalkeeper then, Bodo Illgner was seriously injured. He took the opportunity, then became the youngest goalkeeper in history to capture the Champions League final in 2000 and ascended the throne when Real beat Valencia 3-0.

Memorable moments of Casillas

With the arrival of new president Florentino Perez the following season, with the Galacticos policy, Casillas – a young adult player from the club – is preferred to use alongside young teammates like Francisco Pavon, Raul Bravo or Javier.

However, only Casillas survived the Bernabeu. He started for Real for 16 years, won three Champions Leagues, won La Liga five times and won two King’s Cups.

Casillas won the Euro Championship for the second time in 2012

Not only did he win all the titles at the club level with Real, Casillas also holds many records during his time at the Bernabeu, such as the most Champions League clean sheets, the most clean sheets in La Liga, and the most appearances in the Champions League.

Casillas is also the captain of the best team in the history of world football. Along with Spain, Casillas won the 2010 World Cup, and was crowned twice in the Euro in 2008 and 2012. He won the Golden Gloves of the 2010 World Cup, the Spanish player who wears the team the second most. history, playing four World Cups.

In the 2018-2019 season, he helped Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals, before losing to Liverpool – the team won the championship afterwards.

Messi and Ronaldo are less affected when canceling the Golden Ball

According to Spanish daily Marca, Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Ramos, and Karim Benzema regret the most when the 2020 Golden Ball was canceled.

Lewandowski is the Bundesliga top scorer and has been the recipient of the European Golden Shoe this season.

Since 2007, Messi and Ronaldo, each one has only been absent in the top 3 voted Ballon d’Or. The two superstars took turns holding the noble title: Messi six times and Ronaldo five times. Over the course of 13 years, the number one position only two times escaped from the hands of the duo, namely Kaka in 2007 and Luka Modric in 2018.

Benzema and Ramos have the most scoring seasons of their career

Because of the stability of Messi and Ronaldo, those who played outstanding in the 2019-2020 season have a reason to regret not being able to break the dominance of the superstar duo.

Lewandowski is an example. The Polish striker has scored 34 goals this season, helping Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga. He won the title of top scorer in the Bundesliga and in the morning received another Golden shoes. Besides, “Gray Lobster” almost put a foot in the Champions League quarter-finals, after winning Chelsea 3-0 first leg round 1/8. Former Borussia Dortmund striker has the right to dream about this treble.

Like Lewandowski, Ramos and Benzema also had a memorable year. Together they helped Real overtake Barca in La Liga, and achieved the best scoring performance of their career. Thanks to goals from Ramos and Benzema, Real won a series of 11 wins, while also lighting up hope of reversing the game against Man City in the Champions League.

With De Bruyne, the Belgian midfielder returned strong after the 2018-2019 season struggled with injury. The core of Pep Guardiola’s play is the Premier League assist king this season, with 18 cleanups for his teammates. He also ranked fourth on Man City’s scoring list, after three forwards Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Sergio Aguero.

The common point of the four names listed by Marca is that they all won the titles in the 2019-2020 season, and Messi, Ronaldo has not. Messi’s Barca was soon knocked out of the King’s Cup, finished second in La Liga, and had yet to return to the eighth round of the Champions League with Napoli.

Real is getting closer to La Liga when winning over Granada

Zinedine Zidane’s teachers defeated Granada with a score of 2-1 in the 36th round of La Liga on July 13, recreating a four-point gap with Barca before the last two rounds.

Granada 1-2 Real

Real even opened the scoring on the 10th. Left-back Ferland Mendy soloed through two opposing players, then shot from a narrow-angle to hit the top of Granada’s net.

The match

In this match, Mendy started the match with Marcelo injured. The opening goal showed that the French defender completely deserved the faith of coach Zidane.

Soon to find inspiration, Real continued to press down on Granada. They just need to wait another six minutes to double the gap. After escaping down the left edge of the penalty area, Benzema cut his right foot to beat the goalkeeper Rui Silva.

Granada also staged several dangerous attacks, but not enough to score in the first half. Real defense, especially goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, excellent prevent any intrusive intent of the home team.

Coach Zidane launched Rodrygo and Asensio in the middle of the second half, but their youth could not help Real improve the attacking front. Granada continued to put the visitors in the defensive position.

The defense once again became a fulcrum for Real

Patiently defending to the last minute, Real defended was a 2-1 victory. This is the most important step of the season when they reached 83 points – more than four points compared to Barca before the last two rounds.

Real only need to beat Villarreal at home on July 16, or Leganes on July 19 to take the throne. Zidane and his students can also win the match by drawing the last two matches, due to more than Barca.

Van Persie dismissed Messi and Ronaldo from the Golden Ball award

Former Arsenal and Man Utd striker Robin van Persie selected Robert Lewandowski as the number one candidate for the Golden Ball 2020 title.

Van Persie has been successful for many years in the Premier League

Van Persie’s choice has no room for Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, two players who won a total of 11 of the last 12 titles. If this becomes true, the two superstars will be absent from the Top 3 for the first time since 2006.

In previous years, France Football magazine often published a list of candidates in November. The examiners voted to be prestigious sports journalists in each country.

Lewandowski, the striker of Bayern Munich, currently leads the number of goals in the 2019-2020 season: 52 goals in 43 matches. In particular, 34 goals in the Bundesliga, 11 goals in the Champions League and seven goals in the Cup tournament.

In addition to the two Bundesliga titles and the National Cup, Lewandowski also heads to the Champions League. The Polish striker is also leading two individual races: European Golden Shoes and Champions League top scorer.

De Bruyne, Man City midfielder, is outstanding with 11 goals and 18 assists. His team won the League Cup, competing for the FA Cup final and Champions League quarter-finals.

Mane is an important factor that helped Liverpool to win England for the first time in 30 years, with a record of 16 goals and seven assists. However, the Senegal striker no longer had the chance to win other titles. Liverpool was soon eliminated in the Cup competitions.

Messi is facing the risk of ending the 2019-2020 season with empty hands on the collective title. Barca were eliminated early in the King’s Cup, and four points behind Real in La Liga.

The owner of the Golden Ball 2019 only featured in personal performance: 22 goals and 19 times to clear the deck in La Liga. Meanwhile, Ronaldo owns 26 goals in 27 Serie A matches for Juventus. His team is likely to win Serie A, while still competing for tickets to the Champions League quarter-finals.
