HODGSON LAVISH PRAISE ON LOFTUS-CHEEK

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has lavished praise on the club’s midfield star Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Chelsea star on loan at the club helped them stay afloat last term. After the worst possible start in the league’s history – losing all seven games, without a single goal –, Palace fought back to finish 11th on the log at the end of last season.

The Blues loanee helped the Eagles fight on and retain their top flight status. His performance earned him a call-up to the Three Lions by coach Gareth Southgate last November. The 22-year old had his World Cup debut in the England vs. Tunisia game last week.

The shot stopper is looking to be employed as an option until the end of the season, according to the latest per reports.

Cavalieri on Liverpool defeat

Liverpool’s former goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri believes that the Anfield side needs to work on their defence.


He said that his former team is a formidable side going forward, but they have some problems at the back. He said that this was their major weakness in the game against Manchester City and that Jurgen Klopp will need to find a solution.

The former goalkeeper who now plays for Fluminense in Brazil said that Liverpool has a side that can challenge for the title, but they need to sort out their defence. He said that the German manager has been in charge for more than two years now and it is strange that he has not sorted out the defence yet.

Cavalieri said that Klopp’s former side was renowned for having a good defence and this is why they managed to challenge for titles in Germany as well in Europe. However, he does not see the same thing in Liverpool, and the side continues to struggle at the back. (more…)


Angel di Maria could play a key part in Manchester United’s pursuit of Ivan Perisic

Italian journalist Giorgio Micheletti claims that Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria could aid the transfer of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic to former club Manchester United this summer.


The Argentina international has been a good hit during his time at Parc des Princes, but he could be heading for a fresh challenge in the Serie A this summer.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoradio, Micheletti revealed that United could get closer to the signing of Perisic, should Di Maria seal a potential move to San Siro this summer. The Argentine forward has been on the Nerazzurri’s radar since their Chinese takeover last year, and it is said that he has a verbal agreement in place to join the former Italian champions, he said: “For a while he has promised to Inter. It would be an interesting purchase and would increase the quality of the Nerazzurri. Although his arrival could free up Perisic to head to Manchester United.”

Jose Mourinho has been critical about the vast sums spent on normal players, and he is apparently reluctant to match Inter Milan’s £49m asking price for Perisic this summer. As a result, United’s pursuit of the Croatian international has stalled, and this will bring a sense of frustration for the manager, who is said to want another experienced attacker in his ranks.

Cavalieri on Neymar

Diego Cavalieri believes that Neymar can be a major success at the French club Paris Saint Germain.


He said that it is not always an easy decision to leave a big club such as Barcelona and he feels that Neymar has been brave to take such a decision.

Diego Cavalieri thinks that Neymar has the necessary skills to become the best player in the world and that in France he will be free from the shadow of Lionel Messi as well as Cristiano Ronaldo. He said that it is an important decision of his career and that he feels that Neymar has made the best decision.

He said that this transfer could also benefit Brazil in the next World Cup in Russia as Neymar may arrive there fresher given the fact that the French league is a bit easier than La Liga. He believes that Neymar will not be required to exert too much in the French league and he will be ready for the next World Cup. (more…)


Culpi is beginning to shape Fluminense

It’s been less than 1 month since Levir Culpi took charge of Fluminense but he is already making big changes in the Brazilian club and he has kicked things off by altering the training routine of the squad.

Levir Culpi stated that these changes that he has been making with Fluminense are things that helped him in getting better results during his time with his former club Atletico Mineiro.

When Levir Culpi was in charge of Atletico Mineiro, he managed to lift the Brazil Cup and the South American Recopa title, before being let go. The 63 year old coach is hoping that he can replicate those kinds of results with Fluminense.

There are also rumors going on involving potential reinforcements as Levir Culpi is believed to be keeping in close touch with certain players that he wants to add to his team and attempt to make the title winning process easier for Fluminense, and the club’s link up with Pokies Palace Mobile will certainly help generate funds for new players.

One of the players who is rumored of joining Levir Culpi and his team is Thiago Ribeiro who used to perform in Atletico Mineiro. The 30 year old attacker is reportedly being viewed as a player that can reinforce the offensive department of Fluminense but it might be difficult to sign him as he has recently penned a loan deal with Bahia.

Despite having spent a fairly short amount of time in charge of Fluminense, Levir Culpi has already identified a few of the flaws of his team is that the squad is unbalanced with some areas of the squad being much better than others and one of the ways that Culpi is planning to solve these issues is by signing new players and cover these weaknesses.
It seems like Levir Culpi has big plans for Fluminense but at the end of it all, the results will do all the talking and will be the most important thing.
