Jose Mourinho Takes Pride In Roman Abramovich’s Support; Hits Back At Capello

Jose Mourinho has thanked his employer Roman Abramovich for the faith that he still apparently has in him, despite the chances of Chelsea FC winning a piece of silverware this season becoming slimmer with the passage of time. Chelsea FC have managed only two wins in eight games in the Premier League this season including a surprise victory over title contenders Arsenal and can only hope for a Champions League berth as the Manchester club and Football Association Cup winners have already positioned themselves firmly at the pinnacle of the table. The former Real Madrid manager admitted that being given the vote of confidence by players and management had filled him with pride and pledged to work hard. However, he claimed to be oblivious to the reason behind their stutters and added that his side would even clinch their second Champions League title this season. “This fills me with pride. It shows the faith Roman Abramovich has in a manager who has […] Read more »


Arsenal FC Target Denies Ruling Out Winter Transfer Amidst Barcelona Interest

Nolito has denied ruling out the possibility of a winter transfer, thereby giving more momentum to the rumours linking him with a move to FC Barcelona and Arsenal FC, while talking to the press ahead of the Spain-Luxembourg clash in Logrono later this week. Manuel Agudo Duran has arguably reached his fullest potential in the wake of his return to Primera Division with Celta de Vigo, discreetly notching up double figures every season. He has already added five goals and three assists to his name, despite only playing seven games and has, thus, made keeping him at Balaidos a herculean task for his club. Even though he only answered vaguely, he appeared to have been carried away by the FC Barcelona links after being released by the Catalan giants only four years ago. However, the 28-year-old also pledged his focus to his current team and added that he could still continue to fine-tune his game. “I try to be calm and disconnected […] Read more »


Arsenal FC Vying With Barcelona For In-form Spanish International Forward

Arsenal FC failed to add senior outfield players to their roster last summer, but Spanish reports now claim that they are now keeping tabs on Celta Vigo striker Nolito, with a view of luring him to Emirates Stadium this winter. After being directly involved in 27 goals in 37 outings for the Liga BBVA outfit last season, the Spain international striker garnered interests from major European sides, but ended up staying at the Balaidos. The Gunners are struggling to find consistency, with their defense and attack taking their turns to upset the Arsenal faithfuls week in and week out and could turn things around with the arrival of an in-form striker. Even though he cannot be tipped to spearhead the lineup like an out-and-out centre-forward, he can be expected to form an intimidating partnership alongside Alexis Sanchez with Theo Walcott upfront. As Barcelona are also looking to secure his services after letting Pedro Rodriguez depart Camp Nou, Arsene Wenger apparently […] Read more »
