He lived the myth of the decisive goal in additional time, the electric ambiances of Dortmund and Schalke, the sorrow of a lost Champions League final and the Jürgen Klopp method from the inside. The Brazilian defender tells. “Dortmund-Malaga 2013, Marco Reus equalizes at 2-2 but you are still eliminated on the away goal. We are playing the 93rd minute ...It's a great memory, not only for me but for all the people of Dortmund. Because beyond this qualification and this goal (Felipe Santana scores in the 93rd and qualifies the BVB, note), we really did a very very very big European campaign. It was an extremely exhilarating moment, a big victory. You have to do everything you can to qualify the team and when the ball reaches me, I just push it to the bottom. So it's more of a big collective satisfaction, a big job for the guys. And then I was not alone fighting for this ball! It was a very hard time for us. There was no other solution than to try to score, to strip, the qualification escaped us.What do we feel, a touch of madness?It is a dream. This is the most special moment of my career in all of my football experience. When you are a child, even in your wildest dreams you do not imagine yourself living these things and reaching the final of the Champions League. We did something great. And the journey, from the group sentence, has helped build something in terms of confidence. This is what allows you to face big teams and believe in them. But yes, for me, it was special, this goal. And even today, I have no words to describe exactly what I experienced at that time.For a defender, moreover, it is rather rare to score.It's certain ! I had already scored against Shakhtar Donetsk during the group stage, and it was also an important goal that made us feel more relaxed. But this goal against Malaga ... (he breathes) It is very different. I told the guys, when I got on the free kick, put the ball on my head. We had all the qualities for ground play, with players like Marco Reus or Robert Lewandowski, but a lot of trouble in the air. Malaga had good leading players and solid players. I thought I could help on this. Finally, I recover after a mess, it is Robert who centers and I score. Well, today, with the VAR, it would be refused for offside ... Besides, my first reflex was to run fast outwards to avoid being signaled. It was a really special night. The post-match must have been extraordinary!Completely crazy, even. We went back to the locker room and we actually organized a party in there. We jumped, sang, danced, drank ... We did everything that came to mind. Many were drinking, it was really crazy. My phone kept ringing, but I couldn't speak to everyone. The only person was my dad. Then I didn't sleep for two nights. It was just impossible. I was trying to close my eyes and the only thing I saw was that goal.Do people keep telling you about it?Oh yes ! Especially Borussia fans. Each April 9 is a special time. It's the anniversary of the goal. And every year, they remember that moment. I am happy and proud to have been the one who qualifies the team. What is your oldest memory from the Champions League?It is first of all a dream for all the children who imagine playing football. It was not really different for me. I come from a rather complicated social context, it was not always easy, but I always tried to do my best to get out of it and especially to succeed in football. Obviously, we see everything on television and we think of our idols. My highlight is Zinedine Zidane against Leverkusen, the volley in the final of the 2002 Champions League. But also all the Brazilians who inspired me. Lucio, Juan, Roque Junior ... I dreamed of being in their place. And one day, your moment comes. My first opportunity in the Champions League as a holder was against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. I was so nervous ... I tried to do my best. But each Champions League match transforms you, adds a little something in you. You can't sleep and you know you're going to be playing against the best in the world. And then I still had the opportunity to participate in a final ... It would have been a complete dream if we had won against Bayern. The Champions League is a life experience.You played C1 with Dortmund and Schalke, two very big clubs with two big atmospheres. Are European nights special?In Dortmund, it's special. Because the stadium configuration is different between the Champions League and the Bundesliga. The stadium goes from 80,000 spectators normally to something like 60,000 in the European Cup. But it remained an incredible atmosphere and an immense pleasure to have played there. Same for Schalke. After, the stages are really different. Dortmund is an old-fashioned stadium, Schalke is a super modern arena. The stands are closer to the field in Dortmund, while in Schalke, you have more the feeling of playing in a theater. So you have different feelings, but you know that the atmosphere is heavy in any case.With this yellow wall for Dortmund, of course ...It's really tough, even if in the Champions League, you don't have those 50,000 spectators in the wall who change everything behind the goal. Jürgen Klopp was the guide of the BVB. Are there any developments between the Klopp of the time and that of Liverpool?It has never stopped evolving and reinventing itself. He grew up, he maximized his qualities, he took a lot of experience, he learned a lot. I see a new coach, at least much more complete. He was already an excellent coach, inspiring, but he is now, in Liverpool, much more confident, more developed. He lost two Champions League finals, with Dortmund and Liverpool, but it made him grow. And it's another Klopp. It has developed in all areas. He's a chameleon. He can change the course of a match with one or two decisions. He is able to anticipate, much more than in Dortmund. He knows what's going on, how the players interact ... And he always gets the best out of his players. Individualities have changed, as have the two attackers, Robert Lewandowski and Roberto Firmino, who have very different profiles.This is very important in the evolution of Jürgen Klopp. Robert Lewandowski is no longer a pure number 9. Roberto Firmino, it's a 10 who plays 9. Both are great and, above all, they are part of an attack that is complete. In Dortmund, Lewandowski played alongside Marco Reus and Mario Gotze. Firmino plays with Sadio Mané and Mo Salah, who are two very different players. The change is there. In Dortmund, we played for Lewandowski. And Liverpool do not play for Firmino since on the contrary, it is he who plays the game. About the defenders, what did he want from you?Already, Liverpool has the best defender in the world, Virgil van Dijk, so it changes a lot. But we were not to be pitied with Mats Hummels or Neven Subotic. Mats became world champion a year after the Champions League final. He was the leader of our defense, the one who transmitted tranquility. And Jürgen Klopp built on that. He did a lot of specific work around the defenders. Not only, but there were. The mod of Klopp's game begins with pressing, which obviously started with the attackers. In defense, you must follow to be able to impose restricted choices on the opponent. For that, he required maximum concentration because the pressing is a story of details. He has always kept this philosophy. It's a situation that gives you confidence, a special feeling match after match. We see him very close to the players and he seems to spread a lot of joy.Jürgen Klopp talks a lot with his players. And he spends his time making jokes. You build a positive atmosphere. For its part, it allows him to create something. In the end, the players put their destiny in his hands and follow him in his ideas. This is the secret of Jürgen Klopp. He knows how the players work, how to manage them, how to put them in confidence ... And all that, of course, translates into the field. About you, what are the upcoming projects?My one and only project is to return to the field. I wanted to stop a little because I was seriously injured. And this injury put me aside ... I wanted to stop, resume little by little. But a year later, I'm back and ready to come back. Of course, I have to start from the bottom again. But it's my goal, to find a club and why not find Europe one day. ”
According to the mayor of Liverpool, the Premier League football should be ended Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson opposes the restoration of the English league. He fears that even if the Premier League was played without spectators in the stands, fans would gather in front of the stadiums. Especially if Liverpool ended the 30-year wait for the title. The English league was suspended due to a coronavirus pandemic in mid-March and is scheduled to resume in early June, according to the latest management plans. With regard to security measures, it should be played only in a few selected stadiums and without spectators. But Anderson disagrees. "Even if the game is played behind closed doors, thousands of fans will gather in front of Anfield," he told the BBC. He is particularly concerned about what would happen if Liverpool secured their first title since 1990. "I don't think people would bother with bans at such a time and come in front of the stadium to celebrate. So re-establishing the league is nonsense," Anderson added. According to him, it would not help even if the team of coach Jürgen Klopp secured the title on neutral ground. "People would still come to celebrate and it would be impossible for the police to keep them at the prescribed distance in such a case. It would be a farce," Anderson said. "It is already a problem for us, especially for young people, to gather in the parks. And if they won the title, they would simply ignore the ban," he added. "Health and safety should come first and football should come second. The police, the city and doctors are concerned about this, so we ask the Premier League leadership to take everything I have mentioned into account. Yes, Liverpool should be a champion, but end the season, "he said. Reina will play next year, then maybe hang her gloves on a nail Pepe Reina is slowly getting ready for the last leg of his active career. At the end of August, the Spanish goalkeeper will celebrate his 38th birthday and at that time he will be working in Milan again, then he will be preparing for perhaps the last season among professionals ... In the past, Reina caught up for Barcelona, Villarreal, Liverpool, Naples and Bayern Munich, and less than two years ago he signed up for AC Milan, which sent him to Aston Villa in January this year. "After hosting Aston Villa, I will return to Milan. It will be difficult, there is still one, two years left in my career, and I think that my time in the world of football will end next year in Milan," Reina said. "You never know about the future, but as a player I won't have a chance. Maybe as a coach who knows," Reina said. Reina used to be part of the most successful generation in Spanish history and has won the World Cup title as well as two primates from the European Championship. He triumphed in the Italian Cup with Naples, became the German champion with Bayern and, during his time in Liverpool, raised the trophy for the winners of both local cups.
History: The beginnings of the Blues - Chelsea FC The Chelsea Football Club was founded on March 10, 1905 at The Rising Sun pub, now The Butcher's Hook, by businessman Gus Mears in the company of his brother Joseph. Shortly after its foundation, he was chosen to participate in the Football League of England. The first years of the club saw little success, since the closest thing that was to win a championship of real importance at that time was when he reached the final of the FA Cup in 1915, where Chelsea was defeated by Sheffield Wednesday, in a final score of 3 to 0. After this, Chelsea FC chose to recruit renowned players, which is why he won a great reputation, also began to show a high quality show during the games, although unfortunately it did not cause the desired impact due to the years of war that was going through the old continent. In 1952, with World War II conflicts over, former Arsenal FC and English Football Team striker Ted Drake was hired as coach of the Blues. From his arrival at the club, Drake proceeded to modernize it, removing the Chelsea Pensioner's shield and improving the club's quarry as well as the team's way of training, although at first they all doubted these changes, the first club championship in the League during the 1954 - 1955 season proved right to the newly incorporated coach. For the following season, UEFA created the first European Champions Cup, presumably Chelsea FC had to participate in that tournament, however due to objections from the Football League and the FA, the club was forced to withdraw from the tournament before it began. The decade of the 60s saw the birth of young promises that under Tommy Docherty's orders struggled to devote themselves to a tournament throughout the decade, having to endure continuous failures. All the efforts of the team were very well rewarded, because in the 1964 - 1965 season they not only raised a championship final, but three, the First Division, the FA Cup and the Football League Cup, although the performances were really good the team could only raise the League Cup, while in the other two competitions it could only settle for second place. In the following three campaigns, the Blues were eliminated in the semifinals of several important competitions, managing to obtain only a sub-championship, that of the FA Cup. Chelsea crisis in 70s and 80s It was only at the beginning of the 70s that Chelsea managed to take the FA Cup championship for the first time in its history, after beating Leeds United in an exciting final that concluded with a score of 2 goals to 1. year later, the club managed to devote itself in its first European competition, after snatching the European Cup Winners Cup from Real Madrid in another tiebreaker final where it repeated its 2 to 1, this time in Athens. In the late 70s and during the 80s, Chelsea suffered a very turbulent and damaging period, due to an ambitious modernization of the Stamford Bridge that jeopardized the financial stability of the club, since the stars of the team were sold leaving a dismantled squad that could not avoid being relegated to the Second Division. In 1982, in the midst of a severe financial crisis, Ken Bates bought Chelsea for the incredible sum of a pound sterling, while the Stamford Bridge was sold to real estate developers, which meant that the club may have lost its stadium. Although things improved a bit on the field, the irregularities of the team were still present, this led to a step down from the Third Division during the 1982 - 1983 season. However, with the arrival of John Neal, a dazzling team could be assembled, captivating their own and strangers, with a minimum outlay. The new squad was vitally important for the club to take home the title of the Second Division in the following campaign. Although for a short period, the team managed to establish itself in the First Division before descending again in 1988, a relapse that barely lasted a campaign, since a year later the club managed to ascend once again, with another title of Second Division in the hands. After a long and tortuous legal battle, Bates managed to reunite the property of the stadium again, in 1992, after reaching an agreement with his creditors after the real estate developers went bankrupt due to a market crash. The innovative game of Chelsea in the Premier League, England was very unconvincing, although it allowed them to reach the FA Cup final in 1994. It was not until two years later, in 1996, with the arrival of Ruud Gullit as new technical director of the team when the luck of the club changed radically. Gullit added several world-class players to the team, this was, without a doubt, a brilliant formula since the team won its second FA Cup, in 1997, which allowed it to recover its seat as one of the best teams in England football . The new millennium and Chelsea continuous achievements Even with the good results, Gullit was replaced by Gianluca Vialli, who took the reins of the team and led her to win the Football League Cup, the European Cup Winners Cup and the European Super Cup in 1998, with the 2000 FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League qualification, Vialli was replaced by another Italian, Claudio Ranieri, who led Chelsea to the FA Cup final in 2002 and the Champions League classification a year later. In June 2003, Ken Bates sells the club to Russian billionaire RomanAbramavich for the modest sum of 60 million pounds, completing what was then considered the most expensive sale of a club in the history of English football. With the new management, the club invested more than 100 million pounds in hiring new players, which were not very helpful since Ranieri could not get any trophy, which is why he had to be replaced by the Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho . Under Mourinho, Chelsea became the fifth English team to win a two-time league championship since World War II, in the 2004 - 2005 and 2005 - 2006 seasons, in addition to winning the 2007 FA Cup and two titles of the Football League Cup in 2005 and 2007. The successes for the Blues came one after another, because although in September 2007 Mourinho was replaced by the Israeli Avram Grant, he led the team to its first Champions League final in 2008, where he had to face Manchester United, after In an incredible game where none gave up until the last minute, the team was defeated in the penalty round which caused Grant's dismissal a few days later, being replaced by the Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari, in July of the same year. Scolari's stay at the club was very short, it only lasted 7 months in office before being fired for the team's poor results in the different competitions. Thus, the coach of the Russian national football team, Guus Hiddink, was appointed interim coach until the end of the 2008 - 2009 season. Things improved relatively since the campaign ended with obtaining the FA Cup after a victory from 2 goals to 1 on Everton FC on May 30, 2009. Two days later, Italian Carlo Ancelotti was hired as the team's new coach. After a relatively good season, Chelsea won the 2009-10 season title by defeating Wigan Athletic 8-0 on May 9, 2010. Then, on May 15, Chelsea won the double, having obtained the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth FC, thus obtaining its first double between Premier League and FA Cup in its history.However, in the following season, the team could not obtain any championship and Ancelotti was fired on May 22, 2011. A month later, the club appointed as Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas, who had already worked as an assistant to Mourinho during his years in office. However, the new project did not go as desired and with the team 20 points behind the Premier leader and with a disadvantage in the first round of the Champions League, the decision was made to cease Villas-Boas in March 2012. Despite the bad situation, the blue team traced the flight by accessing the 2011-12 Champions League final after eliminating FC Barcelona and winning its seventh FA Cup (2-1 against Liverpool). Champions of the 2012 Champions: On May 19, 2012, Chelsea is proclaimed champion of the UEFA Champions League for the first time ! In the Allianz Arena, after winning 4-3 in the penalty shootout for the German team Bayern Munchen. After an adverse score of 1-0 in the final minutes of the game and with all the odds against it, the Ivorian Didier Drogba manages to score a header by tying the series and causing the match to lengthen. After the thirty minutes of the extension the score remained the same, although Arjen Robben missed a penalty in the 95 'by the Bavarians and both teams played the glory in the penalty shootout that favored Chelsea 4-3, with Drogba transforming the final launch. However, in the 2012 European Super Cup he would be defeated in Monaco against Atletico de Madrid (4-1). After the renovation of Roberto Di Matteo, Chelsea began the 2012-13 campaign with the Champions in their windows and high expectations, having signed stars like Eden Hazard. The first months of competition were good, but a negative dynamic of results in November 2012 (the team lost the lead in the Premier and had very complicated pass to the Champions League round) caused the dismissal of Di Matteo and the arrival of Rafa Benitez After losing in the semifinals of the League Cup and the FA Cup, being third in the group stage of the Champions League and losing the final of the Club World Cup, Benitez saved the season by qualifying for the Champions League against Aston Villa thanks to two goals from Frank Lampard, who became the top scorer of the club beating Bobby Tambling; and winning the UEFA Europa League against Benfica 2-1, with goals from Torres and Ivanovic. In doing so, and remaining ten days to the Champions League final, Chelsea became the first team to be the current champion of the two continental titles, the Champions League and the Europa League, also being the first team to get them from consecutively and arriving at the select club (formed until then by Juventus, Ajax Amsterdam and Bayern Munchen) of the winners of the three UEFA titles (adding to the previous European Cup Winners Cup). Moreover, adding the European Super Cup, it was only the third, after Juventus and Ajax. For the 2013-2014 season, Chelsea hired Jose Mourinho again, the coach who has given the most success to the blue club. The blue team had an irregular start in the British championship, and lost the European Super Cup against Bayern Munich in the penalty shootout. However, he soon recovered the signs of identity he had shown with the Portuguese coach: competitiveness, intensity, verticality and versatility. In the Premier he settled in the Champions League positions from the seventh day and finished the first round as third classified. 2015 Premier League winner: Chelsea FC are winners! In the 2014-2015 season, the Club wins the Football League Cup and commands the table from day one, becoming Premier League Champion. Conquering both competitions for the fifth time. Football Club Stadium Chelsea has only had one stadium, the Stamford Bridge, where the team has played since its founding, which was officially opened on April 28, 1877. During the first 28 years of its existence it was used by the London Athletics Club as a field for their athletic meetings and not for football. Stamford bridge: Home In 1904, the stadium was acquired by Gus Mears, along with his brother Joseph, who previously acquired adjacent land with the objective of holding football matches on the 12.5-acre (51,000 m2) terrain. The Stamford Bridge was designed for the family] Mears by the prominent architect of the football world, Archibald Leitch. The family offered the stadium to Fulham Football Club, but the offer was rejected. As a result, the owners decided to found their own club to occupy their new stadium. Many teams were founded first, and then worried about having a field to play in, but Chelsea was founded for the Stamford Bridge. As there was already a club called Fulham, the founders decided to adopt the name of the adjacent Chelsea Metropolitan District for the new club, having rejected names such as Kensington Football Club, Stamford Bridge Football Club and London Football Club. Coaches of football club Chelsea has had a total of 31 coaches throughout history and has reached the service of multiple coaches of different nationalities, with the English being the most numerous with a total of fifteen coaches, followed by a total of six Scottish coaches, three Italian coaches, two Portuguese coaches, two Dutch coaches, a Norwegian coach, an Israeli coach and a Brazilian coach. The first coach of the team was the Scot John Tait Robertson, who was in office from 1905 to 1906, obtaining a very acceptable average effectiveness of 60%. The longest-running coach is David Calderhead, who remained in the position for 26 years, accumulating 966 directed games, of which only 384 won, obtaining a 40% effectiveness percentage. The first coach to give the club his first title was Ted Drake, who in 1955 led Chelsea to get the First Division title. Drake was also the one who initiated the modernization of the equipment after its arrival in 1952. The first coach to give Chelsea his first international title was Dave Sexton, who led the club to become European Cup Winner in 1971. Another historic coach was John Neal who, in the midst of a strong financial crisis at the club, was able to lift the team, leading to the rise in 1984 and establishing it in the highest category. When the club began to re-found in 1996, two coaches played an important role during this stage, Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli. Gullit arrived at the club initially as player-coach, making a series of signings, among which were Vialli. Gullit formed a strong team that led the club to become champion of the FA Cup in 1997. After Gullit left in 1998, Vialli took office, also as a player-coach. His arrival soon gave results, since that same year he managed to get three championships, the Football League Cup, the European Cup Winners Cup and the European Super Cup. Two years later, Vialli won the FA Cup and the Charity Shield. Vialli is also the second coach with the most titles in the club's history. Chelsea's most successful coach is the Portuguese Jose Mourinho. After his arrival in 2004, the club immediately began to fill his showcase with more trophies, as he won a two-time championship in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons, as well as two Football League Cups, an FA Cup and a Community Shield ; however, he was not able to take the team to the UEFA Champions League final, having been eliminated from the semifinals twice by Liverpool FC (2004-05 and 2006-07). The only one who has been able to take the club to the Champions League final was the Israeli Avram Grant in 2008, a final where Chelsea was defeated 6-5 by Manchester United in the penalty shootout. With the arrival of Italian Carlo Ancelotti, Chelsea won a Community Shield, as well as his first double between Premier League and FA Cup in his first year under his term. Chelsea's Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas, a man who arrived in circumstances similar to Mourinho's. However, the coach was fired eight months later after not achieving the expected results. The Italian Roberto Di Matteo, was appointed interim coach of Chelsea after his former coach was fired. With Roberto Di Matteo, Chelsea was crowned FA Cup champion and for the first time in its history in the 2012 UEFA Champions League. Di Matteo serves as head coach of the club during the 2012-2013 season. At the end of November, English Chelsea broke the contractual relationship with its coach, Italian Roberto Di Matteo, due to the discreet results of the London team in the UEFA Champions League. Di Matteo was fired and in his replacement came the Spaniard Rafa Benitez, hired only until the end of the season. With Benitez, Chelsea would win the UEFA European League and finish third in the league. For the 2013-14 season, an old acquaintance, Jose Mourinho, was hired.
The intensity, that which Zidane claimed in Paris, rescued the competitive Madrid that intends to fight for the titles. In the absence of football, and in a scenario of maximum demand, before the previous leader of the competition, it was imposed to leave the prelude to the crisis. A good goal from Benzema in the best Madrid collective action decided the match against a Sevilla that accused the European effort. LaLiga football predictions Few stadiums in the world generate an atmosphere as special and suffocating as the Pizjuán. Madrid knows from experience. There he has suffered defeats of all kinds, tight or incontestable, and the moment called for prudence. The jumble of Paris barely touched the alignment of Zidane (Ramos for Militao), but the team looked like another. Tight, the lines close together, more concerned with closing spaces than mastering the duel, waiting for the occasion to release the high pressure and do damage. A plan that bogged down Seville, as well armed as it was blunt in the last quarter of the field. The first half slipped through close surveillance, heavy losses and few occasions. In fact, Sevilla, despite the breath of the stands, caused no more danger than a pair of balls hung by Navas, as expected. Not a shot on goal. Nothing to do with the previous year, yes. Mendy closed conscientiously. Instead, the return of Ramos returned air of strength to the team without the ball. With the ball, that's what you play, James said. He stole Felipe a golden ball that Benzema managed to place Hazard in front of the goal. He pulled Vaclik to one hand. The Czech goal became the protagonist shortly after measuring himself in another duel with Carvajal and coming out gracefully. Again James served half a goal, like the good midfielders. What Madrid needs. He missed the vertigo sevillista in the bands, the one that killed the Madrid of Lopetegui. The now Spanish coach put the interiors, Ocampos and Mudo Vázquez, to open lanes to the sides, Navas and Reguilón. They arrived shortly. That's why the coach's first move was to put Óliver Torres in the game, shaking the midfield. Where the matches are won. ”The mental agility of Oliver seated the locals, who assumed command of the operations. They recovered the ball soon and in the opposite field, but nobody had clarity near the opposite area. Among other things for the solidarity effort of Madrid, with Hazard and Bale collaborating in defensive tasks. At that juncture, a false departure from Sevilla aborted by Varane originated the best play of the night. Opening to the right, temperate center of Carvajal from baseline and Benzema, who had barely participated, crowned the 0-1. If until then Sevilla had been uncomfortable, the disadvantage multiplied the difficulties. Chicharito entered, who is expected to be present in the area, but did not find the track of the good services of Ocampos, the best in attack. To the shield of the spinal cord with Fede Valverde by Zidane, Lopetegui responded with Nolito by Carriço. That is, accumulate attackers at the cost of taking risks. The fact is that little happened in the areas, and with the minutes the European fatigue was more evident. Still, he took arrests to look for attacks and in a shot from Nolito cleared by Courtos scored Chicharito, clearly offside. It was the last scare of a solvent Madrid, able to get out of the crisis to position itself as a co-leader with Athletic. The price of greatness.
Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell's goals were five games without a loss for West Ham United by beating Manchester United 2-0. At the end of a first half played in a uniform manner, a quality moment of West Ham opened the scoring. Felipe Anderson found Yarmolenko right inside the penalty area, and the Ukrainian hit the ball hard in the lower corner. Juan Mata wasted a glorious opportunity to match just after the break, shooting from the center of Andreas Pereira, while Lukasz Fabianski denied Harry Maguire at close range. Premier League predictions Cresswell's impressive free throw from 25 yards flew to the top corner six minutes ahead of time to seal the victory. West Ham rose to fourth place with 11 points, three more than Man Utd, who fell to seventh. Manchester United suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to West Ham United in Sunday's Premier League clash. The Hammers' goals were courtesy of Andriy Yarmolenko's excellent blow in the first half and Aaron Cresswell's excellent free kick in the second period, which ensured that the hosts took all three points at the London Stadium. It was a silent opening to meet the weather that seemed to tarnish the resolution of both sides, literally. It took 15 minutes for the first note, which was courtesy of Nemanja Matic, whose effort of about 25 yards was well supported by Lukasz Fabianski. Shortly after, David De Gea made Yarmolenko's speculative effort, before the Hammers' defense turned off the dangerous career of Marcus Rashford. The Reds were growing in the game and by the 20th minute they were certainly the best team, but they failed to create clear opportunities. Andreas Pereira's shot, which deflected well through a corner, proved to be one of the best opportunities of the opening period. Then, the Hammers set up a test effort when Pablo Fornals found Mark Noble from a free kick, forcing De Gea to cross his goal line to save. While we had started the game better, West Ham finished the first period at the top and made his superiority count only a minute before the break. Yarmolenko picked up the ball on the right flank and handed it to Noble while the Ukrainian continued running towards the area. The Irons captain found Fornals, who quickly slid the ball against Yarmolenko, who took a touch to regain his composure before passing a low shot at De Gea, helpless, to make sure Manuel Pellegrini's men got one in. Rest. After only three minutes of the second half, Andreas picked up the ball on the right flank and, after quickly passing through Cresswell, shot through the area to wait for Juan Mata. Unfortunately, our number 8 was only a few centimeters away from turning it home. Moments later, Yarmolenko produced a test effort that De Gea clung to his body. There was a much more open feeling to things in the second half with both sides creating more shooting opportunities. Scott McTominay approached with an effort from a narrow angle and shortly after the ball deviated from Sebastien Haller's knee and went away. The Reds were forced into a substitution just after the hour mark when Rashford fell with an injury and was replaced by Jesse Lingard, who assumed the role of the center forward. West Ham continued to prove dangerous from wide areas and Felipe Anderson was near a rare raid on the right flank. Her propelled attack forced De Gea to a clever salvation before the United's defense hastily rejected her. After 68 minutes, Harry Maguire had a great opportunity to put United on equal footing when the ball bounced on his way into the area from a corner, but Fabianski made a good save. Then it was the hosts who approached, this time through Cresswell's free kick, which ended, but it turned out to be simply a general rehearsal for the left back. In the 84th minute, after the absence of Ashley Young on Noble, Cresswell lined up another fixed piece, which this time curled up in the upper corner of the goal to put the game out of United's reach. Daniel James had a late effort that rippled the side net, but it turned out to be the last chance to stand out on a frustrating afternoon for the Reds.

Read all the questions and answers from this novel interview below. - Odion, good to see you. Before you confessed that you had been wanting this pass a long time ago. So how does it feel to be a Manchester United player? - I'm very happy. First, I want to thank God for making this happen. It is a dream come true for me, because I have been with the club since I was a boy. Everyone who knows me knows it. I am happy for this nice present and I can't wait to go out on the field. - How did your love for this institution begin? Did you like any particular player? - In Nigeria we used to watch the Premier League a lot, because we liked Andy Cole. Because of this, many people became fans of the team. - Of course, your pass was completed on the last day of the market. How did things happen and what did you feel in the end? - It was all very dramatic. My representative called me the day before and told me that Manchester United was interested in me. Therefore, I said please choose him, as other clubs also wanted to hire me. At 11 p.m. in Shanghai, he called to let me know that the institution was ready to reach an agreement. So I got up and went out to find a translator to talk to the Chinese leaders. I brought them up to date on the situation and, after several hours of negotiation, my agent sent all the papers to England and confirmed that things were in order. A little while later, I had already become a club player. I called my mom and she started crying with excitement. It was definitely worth staying up all night. - What are your ambitions? - I want to work hard with the team and help him from here to the end of the season to finish well in the local championship. - You are going to use number 25. Why did you choose this particular bib number? - I really liked Quinton Fortune, another great player who wore this shirt. However, the number I wanted was not available, but I think 25 is perfect. It is one more than I had when I played in the Premier League. - You will be the first Nigerian to play for Manchester United. Is it something that makes you proud? - Without a doubt, I am very proud and happy, because people do not stop sending me messages. I know this is huge, and I am very excited about it. Now, I can't wait to get out there and represent the team in the best possible way. - How did your family and friends react after confirming your pass? - It was crazy, because it was all over the news. Even people from my neighborhood went out to celebrate. I know because they sent me videos. I came to laugh with happiness, it was incredible. I am extremely happy about this. - Are you eager to play with the other attackers? Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood. What impressions do you have on them? - They are all very good soccer players. Greenwood is cool, young, and has a barbaric left-hander. I've been watching him quite a bit. Martial has incredible foot ball ability, but I think Rashford is one of the best. He scores goals, he is fast and he has a lot of technique. Unfortunately, he is injured now, but I hope he will come back soon so I can share the court with him. - Many fans enjoyed your football in Watford, Italy and China too. How would you describe yourself to those who never saw you play? - Well, I don't think I have much to say. I am very fast, strong and I know how to find my place on the court. Therefore, I hope I can fulfill all this when I have to represent the club. - What could you add to the team? - I think today you need a player who can hold the ball well up. Someone who can turn and give a different touch to the attack. If all goes well, I am sure I can bring you this and much more. - At Watford you built a very good partnership with Troy Deeney. Therefore, do you prefer to play with a partner or as the only striker? - I developed in various positions throughout my career. With Troy we understood each other both in the Championship and in the first division. In China he played as the only striker, just like in the Nigerian National Team. Therefore, I think it will depend on the DT. - Tell us a little more about your experience in China ... - It was a good experience, since I played in various parts of the world, such as Norway, Spain, Italy and England. Culture is very different, as is lifestyle and soccer. The league in this country is growing, but it does not compare with the Premier League which, in my opinion, is the best in the world. - Returning to England, Manchester United has a lot to play from here at the end of the season, as it is in the running for both the FA Cup and the Europa League. How would you feel if you won a title with the club? - Wow, I don't know what to say. I think it would be the experience of my life, something extremely invaluable to me. I would celebrate that title for the rest of my life, since playing for this institution was always my dream, but winning something with the team would be even bigger. - Finally, do you have a message for the fans before your debut? - Yes, I would like to thank you all for the messages of support that you sent me in recent times. I am very happy to be here, and I can't wait to play. I promise you that I will give my all from the first day to the last. I will do everything in my power to help the team. Thank you very much and God bless you. Star football player Odion Ighalo is out of squad on suspicion of coronavirus! The Coronavirus, which emerged in Wuhan, China, is spreading to the whole world.

The Nigerian striker continues to work with his private coach while his teammates are camping in Spain. Due to Ighalo landing in Manchester on February 3, this inspection is expected until 17. On the other hand, Manchester United will face Chelsea in the league on this date and Ighalo will be in the squad of this match according to the allegations.
What is online Casino history? Nigeria An online casino or online casino, sometimes also a virtual or internet casino, is an internet version of a classic stone casino. It provides gamers from all over the world to play all games of chance via computer, mobile or any smart device using an internet connection. This allows people to play casino games from the comfort of their home, on the go or anywhere else. The rules, payouts and games offered are in most cases the same as in classic stone casinos. Some online casinos offer their players slot machines with better average returns. This step works as a very good advertisement for the casino. One of the advantages over a classic casino is the ability to try most games for free, so one can more easily practice winning strategies, which are an essential part of successful gaming. content:1 History of online casinos1.1 Game software1.2 Internet accessibility1.3 License 2 Types of online casinos 2.1 Online casinos in the browser2.2 Online casinos with downloadable software 3 Online casino game providers4 Types of Online Casino Games 4.1 Online Slots4.2 Roulette online4.3 Poker online4.4 Card Games Online4.5 Other online casino games 5 Featured Games6 Bonuses7 Methods of depositing money in online casino 7.1 Payment card7.2 At the branch7.3 Bank transfer7.4 Electronic wallet7.5 Cryptocurrencies History of online casinos The origin of the word 'casino' is often attributed to the French word cassine, or the Italian cassina, but similar terms do not exist in any of these languages. The word "casino" with the ending comes from the Italian word "casa" (house). At the end of the 18th century, it penetrated directly from Italy to Germany. The history of online casinos is relatively short, dating back to 1994, when the government of the Caribbean state of Antigua and Barbuda amended the Trade & Processing Act. Since then, free trade has been made possible and companies from all over the world have been able to legally establish online casinos. The reason for this move was, in addition to gaming software, the slowly evolving Internet, which was a great opportunity for gambling providers. It didn't take long for the first online casinos, The Haming Club and InterCasino, to be established in 1995-1996. The online journey into the world of gambling gradually began to open up to the public. Software and graphics capabilities have been constantly evolving and the number of online casino players has grown to millions. The first problems arose in 2006, when the United States passed a law outlawing online gambling. The main reason was the fact that online gambling is available to minors and leads to addiction. Since then, online casinos have begun to be regulated in many other countries around the world. The new law also affected the Czech market from 1 January 2017 and brought with it a number of changes. One of the most important is that Czech bookmakers, as well as foreign ones, can obtain a Czech license to operate their services on the Internet. The Ministry is now deciding whether operators have sufficient permits to operate online casinos in the Czech Republic. Game software The first important factor for online casinos is gaming software. It was introduced in stone casinos from the mid-1970s. Slot machines based on computer software began to replace old electromechanical machines. These machines were much better technically processed and gave gambling a completely different form, mainly thanks to computer graphics. The next step for computer experts was to create software for the perfect blackjack strategy. Internet accessibility The 1990s became a historic milestone. Massive expansion and easy availability of the Internet have solved a hitherto unsolvable problem. This is the mechanism of connecting several different computers to a node server and using applications stored on it. The Internet was initially used only for communication. There was no permanent internet connection. Individual users only connected to it for a few minutes. License The third and final factor was the license. Each online casino is officially operated from a country (or territory with a special status - jurisdiction). In order to operate an online casino from a particular country, that country must be legally in favor of online gambling. This problem was solved in 1994. A free trade and manufacturing zone was created in the small island state of Antigua and Barbuda, where gambling licenses were allowed. The Caribbean and Pacific Islands are generally very friendly to gambling providers. Types of online casinos Online casinos can be divided into two types: Online casinos in the browser These are online casinos that give players the ability to play casino games in a web browser. So you don't need to download any software, but just have a browser that supports Java, Adobe Flash, or Macromedia plug-ins. Online casinos with downloadable software (Download-based casinos) These are online casinos that require software downloads to allow players to play games more smoothly. The advantage is nicer graphics and more rendered sounds than running games directly in the browser. Providers of online casino games Today, there are a large number of gambling providers, but some of them are at the forefront:Microgaming - This company was founded in 1995 and became the first provider of software for online gambling. The first online casino with this software was Gaming Club.Playtech - a company founded in 1999 and is one of the most famous providers of online casino games. It distributes with a unique IMS interface, thanks to which players have instant access to all games. It boasts not only great functionality, but also quality customer support. NetEnt - or Net Entertainment, is a Swedish company founded in 1996 and is one of the top providers of casino games.Cryptologic - a company that was founded in 1996 and is often presented as one of the most trusted providers.Thunderkick - a company founded in 2012, is one of the youngest software for online casinos. In relatively strong competition, it has found its place in several online casinos. Other important providers are, for example: NYX Gaming, Rabcat, Aristocrat or Quickfire. Types of online casino games Slot machines online These slot machines are online versions of common slot machines (video lottery terminals) that are found in stone casinos. The player can thus play them in the Internet environment from the comfort of their home. There are many types of online slot machines: Five-reel, Three-reel, Four-reel, Classic, Multispin or Hollywood Slots.Ruleta online This is an online version of classic roulette, whose name comes from the French word roulette (or small wheel). We distinguish three types of roulette: European, French and American. The basic and oldest type is European roulette, which originated at the end of the 18th century in France. Later, the other two roulettes were created, but European and French did not differ much from each other. The American version of roulette is specific in that it has one extra zero (so-called double zero). Poker online Online poker is perhaps the most popular online casino game that offers a large number of variants. This is a card game, usually played with French cards (52 cards - crosses, diamonds, hearts and spades). Today, Texas Hold'em Poker is the most popular version of poker, but there are also poker versions such as Caribbean Stud Poker, Red Dog Poker or Pai Gow Poker. Card games online In online casinos, players can encounter many types of online card games. In addition to the aforementioned Poker, this is a very popular BlackJack game, which allows you to increase the probability of winning using various strategies. Another tempting card game is Bacarrat. Other casino games online Every online casino focuses on a certain part of gambling, some for a smaller number, others for all. In online gambling, the player can also encounter games such as Dice, Scratchcards, Bingo or Keno. Offered games The number of games offered in casinos varies greatly. For example, some casinos focus on just one type of game, while others offer all the most popular games of chance. If the casino is focused on only one game (slot machines, roulette), it offers this game in several variants. On the other hand, the largest reputable casinos offer a wide variety of gambling, poker and sports betting. The offer of gambling ranges from 90 to 420 gambling. The most popular online gambling games include:RouletteBlackjackBaccaratDiceOnline slot machinesPokerKenoVideo pokerScratchcardsVirtual games Bonuses Bonus cash Most current online casinos offer various new and regular players various bonuses. These bonuses are a very good marketing move to attract new and retain regular customers. However, players cannot choose bonuses immediately. Each bonus has its own payout conditions. Once the player has fulfilled them all correctly, the bonus money is credited to him. The most important of the conditions are permitted games, on which you can meet the so-called Wagering Requirements (WR), or spin conditions. WR indicates the number of times we have to wager the amount deposited and the offered bonus.Example: 100% bonus up to CZK 5,000, WR = 40: we will therefore deposit CZK 5,000 for the maximum appreciation of the deposit. To get the bonus paid out, we have to wager the initial deposit + the bonus amount 40 times. So we have to bet CZK 40,000. Bonus hunting Bonus hunting or abuse of bonuses. This is the name of the practice of players who try to earn in the long run by using the bonuses offered by online casinos. Bonus hunters can take advantage of the positive expected bonus values when playing some games. This is a fairly simple formula: Expected Value = 100% - (WR * HOUSE EDGE) If you have a $ 200 bonus and you play Blackjack with HOUSE EDGE = 0.5%, it means that you can statistically expect a loss of 0.5% of your bet on each bet. When you spin money 20 times, you can expect it to stay 100% - (20 * 0.5%) = 90% of finances If you do the same on slot machines with RTP 96%, then on average you will end up with 20% of the starting money. Free spiny Until 2017, free spins were typically called "free spins" or "free games". When the new law on gambling entered into force on 1 January 2017, online casinos were obliged to unify the name to "free spins". This is a very common bonus that players receive for registering or depositing in the casino, or then as a prize in the tournament or the game itself. In practice, the player gets a limited number of games on certain slot machines. Playing on a slot machine does not play for money, but only uses free spins. Winnings from this game are retained by the player, but there are certain restrictions. The amount of winnings is very often limited, or the winnings are credited in the form of bonus cash, so they are subject to spin conditions. Methods of depositing money in an online casino Credit card The coverage of the company by payment cards is very high and many of us cannot even imagine payment without a card. Convenience in the form of "plastic" payment has become an automatic part of the company and is no different in online casinos. Depositing money into your card account is in most cases the easiest and fastest way to play. At the branch There are still players among those who want to get their credit in cash, either because they are so used to it or do not trust electronic payments. There are plenty of online casinos that support this option thanks to their brick-and-mortar branches that accept cash payments. Bank transfer Using a bank account as a means of payment or withdrawal at an online casino is one of the traditional tools for playing for money and trying your luck. Its main disadvantage is the time lag in crediting funds to the account. This accrual is determined by banking processes and time limits that the bank defines for the given operations. We also know the foreign designation "wire" for the payment method using internet banking. Electronic wallet Anyone who has ever visited an online casino has certainly noticed several payment methods on how you can transfer your money. One of the very popular options is the electronic wallet, which players have been using for several years. For some players, it may be crucial that you do not need to open a bank account with your online wallet, so you do not have to pay unnecessary fees and you do not have to deal with another payment card. In the 21st century, electronic wallets are among the most practical and efficient payment methods you can use on the Internet. There are several reasons why players choose the method of paying for an electronic wallet, but they certainly hear not only simple user interface or manageability, but also a certain amount of security - you can recharge your wallet only to the required amount and you do not have to worry that other funds will be misused. Cryptocurrencies The latest payment method with which you can deposit funds into your account is in the form of a cryptocurrency, currently eg Bitcoin. For some, it may be a revolt against government money, for others an investment instrument or an international means of payment - as is the case with online casino players. Although this is a relatively new method, the option to pay in the casino with your Bitcoins is being used by more and more players.
