5 Possible Destinations For Unsettled Liverpool Star Raheem Sterling

Liverpool FC are jolted by the news that their youth sensation Raheem Sterling has decided to move out of the club after the current season concludes. Sterling was roped in by Liverpool in the year 2010 from the academy of Queens Park Rangers. He grew up as a promising young talent and got his first major break in the senior side in 2012. Under manager Brendan Rodgers, the English youngster came into prominence in the 2013-14 season. He performed impressively in that season and grabbed many eyeballs with eye catching performances in big matches. His stellar role at Liverpool earned him a call from the English national team manager Roy Hodgson and Sterling performed exceptionally well for the national side in the FIFA World Cup. In the 2014-15 season, after Luis Suarez left the club, Sterling became one of the big names in the side and was expected to fill the big shoes of the Uruguayan.

Thomas Muller Remains Positive Ahead Of The FC Barcelona Clash

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller believes that his side can still overturn the odds in the UEFA Champions League semi-final against FC Barcelona on Tuesday. The Spanish side had thrashed Bayern Munich last week in the first leg at the Camp Nou. The Germans have to pull out a miracle to beat a formidable Barcelona side in the second leg encounter at Munich. At a press conference, Thomas Muller said: “I am very emotional on the pitch, but now my feelings are very much in check. I am neither overexcited nor pessimistic, but we still have a chance. We are FC Bayern. It’s like before the Porto game. We will try our best, and in football anything can happen. Naturally, I believe in us. “Since last Wednesday we have been saying we still have a chance, but we need to play even better. We did not play too badly last week. We still have hope. “I don’t think there has been […] Read more »

What now for Bayern Munich?

Three years ago, fans of Bayern Munich were ecstatic as Jupp Heynckes managed to win the elusive treble, and that too in spectacular style.  The League and Cup titles were reclaimed from the hands of Borussia Dortmund, whom they later edged out in the Champions League final, completing the three-trophy haul in 2013. Announcing his retirement soon after, Heynckes left Bayern on the ultimate high. Filling in Heynckes’ shoes was never going to be an easy task for any manager.   Enter Pep Guardiola. The master tactician and Barcelona legend took over the reins last season, but it hasn’t been smooth sailing since. For a team that is expected to do the domestic double and reach the Champions League finals practically every season, it was never going to be an easy task. And sure enough, criticism followed. The domestic double last season wasn’t enough to convince the supporters of his possession based game, which was ruthlessly exploited by Real Madrid. […] Read more »

Pep Guardiola Dismisses Manchester City Speculation

The Spaniard’s place in Bavaria has been coming under increasing pressure but despite four straight defeats he says he will remain for the final year of his contract. Pep Guardiola has declared that he will still be manager of Bayern Munich next season, dismissing the growing speculation linking him with a summer switch to Manchester City. Guardiola, whose contract at Bayern is due to expire in a little over a year, has been linked with a move to City for some time. City chiefs Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain worked with Guardiola at the Camp Nou, and Bild has reported that Guardiola met with Begiristain in Munich the day after Bayern’s 6-1 win over Porto. Guardiola has been much criticised recently, particularly following the departure of long-time club doctor Hans Muller-Wohlfahrt and after his side’s 3-0 Champions League semi-final first leg loss at Barcelona. But with his future shrouded in doubt, Guardiola has sought to clarify that he will be […] Read more »

Luis Enrique Believes That “It Will Be Difficult Against Bayern” In The Second Leg

FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique sounded cautious as he spoke about their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Barcelona have a clear edge over the Bavarian club as they won the first leg last week 3-0 at their home ground. Also, if we current form is considered, Barcelona have been in sublime form in the recent times while Bayern Munich have lost their last four matches. Yesterday also the German champions went down by a goal to nil against FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga. Speaking about Bayern, Enrique said, “They played more than 70 minutes of the game with one player fewer, but they had the 80 percent of the possession. Finally they lost, but I didn’t see the game. “I know we will suffer in Munich,” he said. “I have no doubt about that and neither do my players, because they are a strong rival.” The Barcelona boss emphasised on the fact that they had overturned […] Read more »
