Chelsea midfielder Oscar has urged his compatriot Neymar to join him at Stamford Bridge while Stoke manager Tony Pulis has called for the FA to take retrospective action against Luis Suarez for diving. Also, Balotelli has been let off the hook by his club for his latest act of indiscipline.
Chelsea Midfielder Oscar Urges Compatriot Neymar To Join Him At Stamford Bridge
Chelsea’s summer signing Oscar has urged his Brazilian teammate and probably the hottest sensation in world football today, Neymar, to join him at Stamford Bridge. The young prodigy from Santos has been linked with almost every big club across Europe including the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona and it is expected that he will be switching clubs sooner rather than later. Barcelona defender Dani Alves has also done his bit by advising Neymar to move to the Catalan giants. However, Neymar is yet to make any decision about his future. In an interview with the Sun, he said,
“Oscar messages me to tell me what a great club Chelsea is and what a great city London is. He and Dani are both very good salesmen for their club. When the time is right I will listen to to the right offers that my agent has for me. It is very simple: if Barcelona are interested you listen, if Real Madrid are interested you listen, if Chelsea are interested you listen. There are maybe five clubs in the world that you know you must at least listen to.“
Tony Pulis Wants Suarez To Be Banned For Diving
Stoke manager Tony Pulis has called for a retrospective decision to be taken by the FA and ban Luis Suarez for diving during the game between Liverpool and Stoke at Anfield on Sunday. Suarez went down in Stoke’s penalty box in order to win a spot kick, however, replays clearly showed lack of any contact between the Stoke defender and the Liverpool striker.
The Uruguayan has already been under intense criticism by the media and fans for simulation and in fact, his reputation has denied Liverpool from getting penalties for legitimate claims and his latest antic might hurt his team even more in times to come. The Stoke manager was clearly furious as the striker wasn’t even booked for diving.
“Retrospective decisions are made on a Monday and Luis Suarez should be punished. The one in the penalty box was an embarrassment and how he wasn’t booked I don’t know.“
Mario Balotelli To Avoid Any Disciplinary Action By The Club For His Latest Shenanigan
The Italian striker went straight down the tunnel after being substituted on the hour mark against Sunderland at the Etihad stadium on Saturday. However, the club is believed to let Balotelli off the hook by not forcing any disciplinary action against the former Internazionale forward. While David Platt admitted that Mario’s behavior was strange, manager Roberto Mancini completely dodged the reporter’s question by claiming, “I am happy with Mario, he played a good game.“
