Koeman reinstated the rule that Guardiola introduced at Barcelona

New Barcelona Manager Ronald Koeman has reinstated the rule that was in effect under Josep Guardiola, according to reports Sport.es. According to it, all club players must arrive at the base an hour before the start of the work process.

This rule was first introduced by Josep Guardiola when he was in charge of the Catalan club. However, with the arrival of other coaches, this requirement was no longer met. Now Koeman has re – introduced more rigidity to the schedule in order to achieve better discipline.

Guardiola was in charge of Barcelona from 2008 to 2012.

Last season, Barcelona did not win a single trophy, finishing second in the Spanish League and being eliminated from the Champions League at the quarter-final stage. The Blaugrana lost “Bavaria” with the score 2:8.

Guardiola arrived in Barcelona and made an appointment with Messi

Manchester city Manager Josep Guardiola is in Barcelona. The specialist has agreed to meet with Barcelona striker Lionel Messi to discuss the future of the player, reports Marca with reference to Jugones.

“Citizens” are the main contenders in the fight for the Argentine player. Barcelona do not intend to let Lionel go, so they are ready to sell him only if they pay compensation in the amount of € 700 million. Lionel expects to leave the blue-garnet as a free agent, taking advantage of a controversial clause in the contract.

Messi played under Guardiola at Barcelona from 2008 to 2012. During this period, the team won the Spanish championship three times and won the Champions League title twice.

Pankrat: Many things point to Messi’s move to PSG. Ronaldo and Guardiola will also be there

Former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Fabrice Pankrat has spoken about a potential move for Barcelona striker Lionel Messi to the Paris club.

“I’ll tell you what I think. In addition to the city-Manchester is ugly, grey, it always rains — there are many parameters that make sure that Messi will move to Paris. And Ronaldo will join him in 2021. And Guardiola, too.

I think Guardiola and Messi have spoken before. Guardiola must have said to him: “We are going to make a fuss that I am waiting for you in Manchester, but go to Paris and don’t worry, I will be there next year too.” That’s how I see it. PSG’s slogan “Let’s dream bigger” will make sense! This will be the first team in the world to combine four aliens-Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar and Mbappe. With an insanely good coach.

Messi is 33, Ronaldo will be 36, but stars of their level don’t need to run. This is the ball moving towards them. Maybe they will move around the field more slowly, the effort will be made by their young teammates. They will always be important in technical terms.

And also, if you could take Buffon or David Beckham at 37, given the marketing demand that no one hides, it makes sense to take Ronaldo, who is still very competitive and professional,” Pankrat was quoted as saying by Le Parisien.

Klopp asked not to blame the loss to Arsenal for Brewster not scoring a penalty

Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp commented on the defeat in the match against Arsenal for the FA super Cup.

“The fact that Rian didn’t score a penalty won’t hurt him. If anyone is to blame for his blunder, it’s me. I wanted him to break through, because he’s a real finisher, he’s confident. I didn’t get it today. It happens in life and in football.

We all need to learn and prove that we can cope with defeats. If he scored and someone didn’t, it would be the same. Anyone can miss. I’ve never seen Rian smear from a point, but it happens, ” Klopp was quoted as saying by Goal.

In the match for the FA super Cup, Arsenal beat Liverpool. The match was held at Wembley stadium in London and ended with the score 1: 1 (5: 4 in a penalty shootout). The only unrealized 11-meter shot was scored by Rian Brewster. Arsenal won the trophy for the 16th time in their history.

Jurgen Klopp shared his expectations for the new season

Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp commented on the club’s victory in the English Premier League and spoke about preparing for the new season.

“Every year it becomes more difficult to win the title. Was it easy last year? Definitely not. Sometimes it seemed that way, but it looked that way because we were a machine for getting results. We had to fight in every match.

We know that we are going to have a difficult season. It will be difficult not because we became Champions last year, but simply because the development of football never stops.

It’s amazing what people think: “Yes, you can win once, but then you can’t.” I don’t think so. I am 53 years old and have been in the profession for 20 years. There was always a desire, even if I couldn’t always fulfill it. Nothing will change in this regard, ” Klopp is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.

On August 29, Liverpool and Arsenal will play the FA super Cup.

Lampard on Tiago Silva at Chelsea: “He knows how to command on the pitch and influence others»

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard has commented on the moves of defenders Tiago Silva and Ben Chilwell to the London club.

“I know Chilwell very well, he has been the main left-back for England for a long time. He has excellent data, if we talk about what he can bring. He is strong, physically developed, plays well with his left foot, fits our style.

It can help us a lot on the left flank, both in attack and defense, and this is the main thing. I’m happy to work with him, I think it’s a great acquisition. He is 23 years old, and this is also good for us.

I know Silva as well as anyone. He will bring experience, he still plays at the highest level, as was seen in the Champions League final and in the matches that preceded it. This is what I expect from him: his experience, his leadership skills, his skills. This will be extremely important to us.

We have a relatively young team, we saw last season that there were matches when I needed more volume on the field, more leadership qualities, and Tiago has this, he can command on the field and is able to influence others. I think he can give us that. I am sure he will do it, given his qualities, which everyone knows about, and I am happy with his transition, ” Lampard said.

Lampard on Chelsea’s challenge for the new season: “we Don’t want to limit ourselves to just fighting for the top 4»

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard spoke after the second leg of the 1/8 final of the Champions League with Bayern Munich (1-4) and shared his expectations for the next season.

“Playing against an opponent of this level is a test to the limit and an incredible experience for Rhys [James], Callum [Hudson-Odoi], Tammy [Abraham] and Mason [Mount]. Today I saw that our youth demonstrated their level, remained in the game until the end and did not give up until the final whistle.

Kante has only played half the games this season and we missed him very much, and today, especially in the second half, he showed exactly why. Of course, the final result cannot please us. We probably didn’t have a chance to win, but we went out on the field with the right attitude and gave everything we had.

I will never be able to accept defeats calmly, but if you compare these two teams, we need time to get to this level. This cannot be achieved in one day. Now the players are going on a well-deserved rest, but we are looking forward to the start of the new season, in which we will do everything to achieve more.

We know what level we are at now, and next season we don’t want to limit ourselves to just fighting for the top four. We must accept our initial level, work hard, and understand that everything takes time. Now I see a great set of players who have done a lot this year and are ready to do even more next year,” Lampard said.

Andrea Pirlo: “Dibala is an important player, he will be part of the project. I spoke with Ronaldo a few days ago».

The new head coach of Juventus, Andrea Pirlo, spoke about some of the team’s players.

“Ronaldo and I spoke a few days ago, and yesterday I spoke with him on the pitch, just like with others. We will have time to talk in the coming weeks.

Dibala was never planned to be sold, he is an important player and will be part of the project.

Artur is a good player, we admired him at Barcelona and in the Brazilian national team. He can play several roles in midfield, ” Pirlo said.

Nuno Gomes: “Pirlo and Zidane played in similar positions, and it was clear that they would become coaches».

Former Portugal, Benfica and Fiorentina striker Nuno Gomes compared the new Juventus coach, Andrea Pirlo, to Zinedine Zidane, who heads real Madrid.

“All coaches have to start somewhere, don’t they? For Pirlo, this is a great opportunity and a great challenge in his first job as a coach.

Pirlo will have the support of the players, the club and the fans. So he has everything to become a good choice for the club as a new coach.

There is no doubt that Pirlo was a terrific footballer. And I believe that he will become a very good coach.

You can compare him with Zidane, because they played in similar positions on the field. This is funny, since many of the players who become coaches have operated in midfield.

You have an idea about Pirlo. He was the “Maestro” for the team when he played. And even the style of his game showed that he would become a coach at the end of his career, as in the case of Zidane.

The name Pirlo is highly respected. And I think the players will help him achieve what he wants,”the Portuguese told Stats Perform News.

Frank Lampard: Chelsea will return. It’s hard to talk after a 1-4 defeat»

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard summed up the results of the second leg of the 1/8 final of the Champions League with Bayern (1: 4).

On the sum of two games, the Londoners lost 1: 7 and left the tournament.

They have performed well. It is difficult to speak after the 1-4 defeat, it is unpleasant, but we still got back into the game, conceding two quick goals.

Comparing our performances in the Champions League with theirs, I saw a lot of good things in the team, but also some bad things to slip through this season. We had some mistakes, thanks to which the opponent scored. At this level, it will kill you.

The work continues. This is not the norm for Chelsea. We almost lost the best player in the League in the person of Eden hazard. People don’t usually approve of Chelsea’s fourth place, we want more, but it feels like we have achieved something with the team.

Now it’s time to think about what we can improve, ” Lampard said.

We need to approach the upcoming meeting very carefully. We will start with a score of 0: 1. in the current conditions, it will be very difficult to win back.

I am surprised that Lyon looked very good physically in the match against Paris Saint-Germain. They didn’t look like a team that hadn’t played for a long time.
