Land & Buildings may seek board seats at Taubman Centers in 2020

NEW YORK ( ) – Activist investment firm Land & Buildings on Tuesday warned that it may seek board seats at shopping mall operator Taubman Centers Inc next year unless performance improves.

Jonathan Litt, who runs the firm and is known for pushing for change at real estate companies, wrote to fellow Taubman shareholders, telling them that he plans to “take any action that we deem necessary to hold this Board and Bobby Taubman accountable.”

Unless there is “meaningful progress in the coming months,” Litt wrote that he plans to wage a proxy contest and nominate directors next year.

Specifically Litt wants Taubman Centers to sell assets in Asia and sell or spin-off “Jewel Box” assets which include properties like the Mall at Short Hills in New Jersey.

Shares in the company, whose market capitalization is roughly $2.6 billion, have fallen 26% in the last 52 weeks as consumer appetites have shifted more to buying online.

“Their best defense against a proxy contest in 2020 is to drive m上海夜生活论坛aterial outperformance by maximizing value for all shareholders,” Litt wrote in the letter.

Litt, whose firm had roughly $577 million in regulatory assets at the end of last year, has been pushing for changes at Taubman since 2016 and won a board seat two years later.

He wrote that he did not stand for re-election this year because “it was clear that the Company did not intend to re-nominate me,” and because he feels that one independent director was not enough to push for the changes he feels are needed.

Next year however shareholders will have a chance to cast ballots on all directors including Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bobby Taubman. “All directors and specifically, Bobby Taubman, can be held accountable by shareholders for the Company’s atrocious absolute and relative performance for the first time since 2017 at the 2020 Annual Meeting,” the letter said.

News of Litt’s plans was first reported by Bloomberg.

Trump national security aide McFarland may become envoy to Singapore: official

PALM BEACH, Fla. ( ) – President Donald Trump’s deputy national security adviser, K.T. McFarland, is expected to step down and has been offered the position of U.S. ambassador to Singapore, a U.S. officia上海夜生活论坛l said on Sunday.

The move will be seen as a victory for Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, who is retooling the national security team he inherited from retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, who resigned as Trump’s first national security adviser in February.

McFarland, 65, is a former national security analyst for Fox News and was one of Trump’s original hires after he won the presidential election on Nov. 8.

The exact date of her departure was unclear, said the U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

News of her pending departure came less than a week after Trump removed his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, from the National Security Council at McMaster’s urging. Bannon had a seat on the council’s “principals committee,” which included the secretaries of state, defense and other ranking aides. Flynn was forced to resign on Feb. 13 over his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, before Trump took office on Jan. 20.

McFarland’s expected departure will likely elevate the status of Dina Powell, who is deputy national security adviser for strategy. She had served in Republican President George W. Bush’s State Department, and had advised Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, during Trump’s transition to the presidency.

Trump’s White House has been rife with infighting and palace intrigue as the president has struggled to get past some early stumbles.

FOREX-Chinese yuan falls to 2019 low on U.S.-China trade setback

* Yuan headed for sixth consecutive day of losses

* But most currencies little changed by trade war

* Risk aversion dominates FX

By Tom Finn

LONDON, May 13 ( ) – China’s yuan was set for its worst daily fall in nine months on Monday as trade negotiations between the U.S. and China ended after President Donald Trump raised tariffs on Chinese goods.

Currency moves in response to the latest trade hostilities have been muted, but on Monday the yuan fell 0.8% to 6.9040, its weakest since Dec. 27.

The yuan has fallen for six consecutive days and some analysts believe it will breach 7 per dollar in coming months, a level last seen during the global financial crisis.

China would probably use its vast currency reserves to stop any plunge through 7 to the dollar, which could trigger speculation and heavy capital outflows.

Investors bid up the yen, which is considered a safe haven in times of stress given Japan’s status as the world’s largest creditor and its huge hoard of assets abroad.

The yen was 上海夜生活论坛0.25% higher at 109.700 yen, near last week’s three-month high of 109.470.

“Since demand for safe haven could exaggerate any gains in the yen, Japanese exporters could find themselves particularly disadvantaged in these circumstances. We expect the yen to be trading in the region of 108 on a 12-month view,” said currency analysts at Rabobank.

The world’s two biggest economies appear deadlocked. Washington demands changes to Chinese law; Beijing says it won’t swallow any “bitter fruit” that harms its interests.

President Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping are likely to meet during a G20 summit in Japan at the end of June and discuss trade.

The Australian dollar shed 0.3% to $0.6976. A drop below $0.6960 would take the currency, already burdened by a dovish shift by the Reserve Bank of Australia, to its lowest since early January.

The Aussie is sensitive to shifts in risk sentiment and also serves as a proxy for trades related to China, Australia’s largest trading partner.

The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies was flat at 97.318.

Japan’s coincident index suggests economy may be in recession

TOKYO ( ) – Japan’s coincident indicator index declined in March and the government cut its assessment of the economy, a sign it may already be in recession as the U.S.-China trade war and weak external demand hurt activity.

Worries about the economy have grown as Japan’s exports and factory output were hit by China’s economic slowdown and the escalating U.S.-China trade friction, which had disrupted global supply chains.

The index of coincident economic indicators, which consists of a range of data including factory output, employment and retail sales, fell a preliminary 0.9 of a point in March from the previous month, the Cabinet Office said on Monday.

In its view on the index, the government described the economy as “worsening”. That compared with its previous assessment for February when it described the economy at “a turning point towards a downgrade”.

The index for leading economic indicators is compiled using data such as job offers and consumer sentiment and is seen as a forward-looking gauge of the economy. It slipped 0.8 of a point from February.

Clouding the outlook are government plans to raise a sales tax to 10 percent from the current 8 percent in October unless a big shock on the scale of Lehman Brothers’ collapse in 2008 hits the economy.

There is also speculation Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may postpone the sales tax hike as risks to demand grow, having already twice delayed it.

There are concerns the sales tax increase will damage private consumption as it did so when Japan raised the tax to 8 percent from 5 percent in 2014.

Japan releases gross domestic product (GDP) data on May 20, which will give a clearer read on the state of the economy and whether the government will proceed with the tax hike as sc上海夜生活论坛heduled.

The economy likely contracted at an annualized 0.2 percent in January-March as corporate and consumer spending weakened, a poll showed.

GRAPHIC-Take Five: Trade winds – World markets themes for the week ahead

May 10 ( ) – Following are five big themes likely to dominate thinking of investors and traders in the coming week and the stories related to them. 1/WATCH THOSE CURVES Moody’s warned this week that a trade war could tip the U.S. economy into recession next year. And U.S. President Donald Trump’s latest decision to hike tariff rates on Chinese goods has possibly brought that risk a bit closer. At least the bond market seems to think so — the yield on three-month U.S. Treasury bills is on the cusp of rising above 10-year yields.

A sustained curve inversion, as such a shift is called, would be seen as a sure-fire recession signal; in a normally growing economy, longer-dated borrowing costs are higher than short-term rates.

But the curve has sent a false alarm at least once before and some believe it is doing so again, above all because huge Fed purchases have depressed longer yields. Huge issuance of short-term debt is also likely to have contributed to the flattening.

Which brings us to another question. Given 2019 net borrowing will top $1 trillion, might Washington find itself scrambling to find buyers? Some dismal bond auctions recently have raised the question whether China is paring Treasury purchases — due to the escalating trade spat. Simmering tensions will keep the issue alive.

2/ TALK, TWEET, REPEAT Industrial output, retail sales, house prices: a batch of data due in coming days was supposed to give investors an idea about how China’s economy was faring against a backdrop of 10% U.S. tariffs and authorities’ stimulus policies.

Fast forward and the stakes have been raised — quite a lot. On Friday, Washington hiked tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25% and Trump, reverting to Twitter, has threatened more. Beijing warned it would retaliate, though it didn’t say how.

Negotiations to try to end a 10-month-old trade war between the world’s biggest economies are continuing, and markets have taken heart from China’s decision to stick with the talks. Another factor is China’s central bank, which assured markets it had “rich” policy tools to cope with external uncertainties. Weak economic data can only cement that resolve. -Trump’s tariff hike on $200 bln of Chinese goods takes effect -More China policy easing seen as lending slows, trade risks rise -Counting the cost of the U.S.-China trad上海夜生活论坛e war so far tmsnrt.rs/2Lzed8e

3/OIL SLICK The world economy seems to be shifting into a lower gear but Brent crude futures are holding above $70 a barrel, up 30% this year. Barclays sees a climb to $74-$75 in the coming year.

In the short-term too, oil looks well-supported. On the demand side, Chinese imports hit a record in April, possibly due to economic stimulus measures taking effect. And supply has been curtailed by a pipeline contamination issue in Russia and U.S. sanctions that have cut shipments from Venezuela and Iran.

Venezuelan exports have dropped 40% since January and Iran’s exports have more than halved, to one million barrels per day or less. They are expected to slide further in May.

None of these issues will be resolved anytime soon. Iran for one is threatening to retaliate against U.S. sanctions by breaching a nuclear pact signed in 2015. Sanctions have failed to dislodge Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro but they are likely to cut oil exports further in May, after the expiry of an April 28 deadline for U.S. firms to complete existing deals.

4/NO STICKER SHOCK Few U.S. data series have been as choppy in recent months as retail sales. December’s drop in core sales was the largest in nearly two decades — only to be followed by an equally large swing to the upside in January. Demand for big-ticket items like cars then pushed the March total to the highest in 18 months.

Consumer resilience, emboldened by a strong job market, was a key pillar of support for the U.S. economy in the first quarter. So the April reading will show if that willingness to spend continues into Q2.

estimates point to the first back-to-back rise in retail sales since November. Headline sales are seen up 0.2%.

The report comes soon after Trump imposed new tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports, but it is far too soon to see a meaningful impact from the trade war between the world’s two largest economies. Shoppers will probably not start reacting to sticker shock until the third quarter. -U.S. retail sales post biggest gain in 1-1/2 years in March -Fed rate cut likely if U.S. manufacturing continues to slow: Kemp tmsnrt.rs/2VVixm4 5/ITALIA DEJA VU Once again it seems there’s good reason to fret over Italy, the euro zone’s third-biggest economy — and one of its most indebted.

Tensions have flared within the ruling coalition over a corruption scandal that cost a junior minister his job. Rome may find itself footing the bill for a bank bailout after BlackRock ditched a proposed rescue of Carige. And finally, the European Commission has warned that Italian finances may deteriorate further. So another showdown with the EU might be looming.

How talks on deficit targets may pan out could become clearer at the May 16 Eurogroup meeting of finance ministers.

Signs of compromise will bring relief to Italian bond markets, where yields have seen their biggest weekly jump in three months with a rise of over 10 basis points. Contrast that to Spain and Portugal, often lumped in with Italy as the euro zone “periphery” — 10-year Spanish yields are at 2-1/2 year troughs while Portuguese yields have touched record lows.

The latest bond sell-off, which took Italian yields to 2.7%, is small compared to the rout a year ago when yields spiked to 3.4%. But who could be blamed for a sense of deja vu? -Rome scrambles to swerve Carige bank bailout after BlackRock pulls out -Italy coalition patches up rift after PM ousts junior minister

Trump knocks off Walker in key state of Iowa: poll

WASHINGTON ( ) – Donald Trump has surged ahead of the pack of Republican presidential candidates in the key state of Iowa, knocking off Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who had been the leading contender there, a poll released on Friday showed.

Walker had been leading among the 17 Republicans seeking the party’s nomination for the November 2016 election in the early voting state of Iowa, which borders Wisconsin.

The Quinnipiac University survey showed 27 percent of likely Republican caucus voters in the Midwestern state backed Trump, the outspoken businessman and television personality who has seen his lead in national public opinion polls grow in recent weeks despite a string of controversial comments.

Another 21 percent said they supported former neurosurgeon Ben Carson and 9 percent backed U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement.

The university’s July poll found Walker leading among 18 percent of likely participants in the state’s Feb. 1 caucus, followed by Trump and Carson with 10 percent each. In the poll released on Friday, just 3 percent said they would pick Walker.

“With five months until the balloting, anything can happen. But the field has become a two-tiered contest – Donald Trump and Ben Carson ahead and everyone else far behind,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said in a statement.

The results also showed the handicap that Washington experience has become in the minds of potential Republican voters, Brown said.

He added that Carson, who scored better than Trump among those surveyed when it came to honesty, empathy and temperament despite Trump’s edge on leadership, pointing to the ex-surgeon’s potential to gain support when other Republicans drop out of the race.

The findings also highlight the challenge for Walker, who had been leading most Iowa polls earlier in the summer and has in rec上海夜生活论坛ent weeks tried to jump-start his campaign.

Quinnipiac’s survey released on Friday polled 1,038 likely Iowa Republican Caucus participants from Aug. 27 to Sept. 8 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Simeone admitted that the Copa del Rey exit was his mistake

Diego Simeone, the Atletico Madrid head coach, admitted that the elimination from the Copa del 上海夜网Rey is his responsibility as he made a lot of mistakes and Sevilla deserved to go through after a 5-2 win on aggregate.

Atletico lost the first leg 2-1 after two late goals and they were defeated in the reverse match as well – and Simeone was sent from the sidelines in this bitter 3-1 loss to their rivals. Atletico were eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League by AS Roma and Chelsea and in La Liga, they are 11 points behind the league leaders, Barcelona.

The Argentinian coach spoke about this loss as he said, according to Goal: “The responsibility for this elimination and the Champions League is all mine. There are still four months left in the season and between La Liga and the Europa League, we’ll keep competing like we always have. Our opponent took advantage of their chances. Sevilla finished their chances both here and in the first leg. This made them more comfortable in the tie. We were close to turning the match around in the first half and scoring the equaliser in the second, but [Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio] Rico played well.”Kieran Trippier talks about his decision to leave Tottenham Nedim Maric – The English right-back changed the environment this summer, moving from rainy London to sunny Spain.Trippier is having a good start at Atletico Madrid.

He also added that they wanted to play the finals in their home stadium: “We had dreams of playing the final in our stadium. We’re going to pick ourselves up because this team has always done so. Now we need to think about La Liga. I think Sevilla were better and when that’s the case, you have to congratulate them.”

In the end, Simeone claimed that they will need to learn from their mistakes and start improving: “We need to study what we did wrong and improve from that. We have to fight to finish as high up in La Liga as possible and we also have the Europa League.”

Joao Mario joins West Ham

The Portuguese international has joined the Hammers until the end of the season.

Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario has joined West Ham United on a season long loan move, the club from London have confirmed.

The 2016 Euro winner has joined the club at London Stadium and is excited to get started in the Premier League as he spoke to West Ham’s official website:

– I am really happy to be here, – said the new No18. – It’s a really amazing experience to join this amazing team and I am just glad to be here.

– It was a fast move. I have spoken with everyone around the team and, for me, it is exciting to play in the Premier League. I spoke with the coach and for me, I am really happy to be training for an amazing coach, also.

Joao Mario also added that his Portugal team-mate Jose Fonte played a major part in his move to London.West Ham suffer a tough injury blow Nedim Maric – After a promising start of the season, Manuel Pellegrini and West Ham will have to adapt after losing one of their crucial players.This weekend…

Fellaini spoke about his future at Manchester United

Marouane Fellaini, the Manchester United midfielder, spoke about his future at Manchester United and he revealed that he is “not sure whether he will stay at Old Trafford” if the club will make him another contract offer.

The Belgium international spoke about his situation as his contract is going to expire the upcoming summer and he can possibly leave the club – and he admitted that he has been thinking about this possibility. The 30-year old insisted that he expects another proposal by Manchester United but he doesn’t know yet how is he going to react.

The former Everton player spoke about his opini上海夜生活论坛on on that situation as he said, according to ESPN: “Honestly, I don’t know. I do have something in mind, but I cannot say anything about this yet. If Manchester didn’t want me anymore, they would have told me. They made an offer and they will likely make me another one. Whether I will accept that I am not sure. Those things don’t happen overnight.”Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

He also added that he also talked about it with José Mourinho and he respects his decision: “No, we talked about it. The manager is someone who respects his players’ decisions. This is my 10th season in England. Aside from my first experience at Manchester I only had good moments. Five years at Everton, five years at Manchester. I like the stability. It takes a couple of years before you build relationships. I know everyone by now — that is nice.”

In the end, Marouane Fellaini revealed further facts about his injury: “The inner ligaments were touched. One month later I played again, against Chelsea. But three weeks later, against Brighton, I felt pain again. I decided not to take the risk. I trained again, but not at 100 percent. It wasn’t an easy time, but hey, that’s how it works in football. It could have been worse. Two weeks before Bosnia, there was that attack from [Southampton striker] Shane Long.”

Kane: “My teammates deserve the praise, not me”

Harry Kane, the Tottenham striker, admitted that he asked his teammates for help with breaking Alan Shearer’s record ahead of the match against Southampton and he praised them for doing so.

Alan Shearer’s 22-year old record of 36 goals scored was broken – Harry Kane managed to level it in the match against Burnley and now, he has surpassed him by scoring another hattrick against Southampton and set a new benchmark of 39 goals. To be added, he has also become the world’s top scorer of 2017 by surpassing Lionel Messi by two goals and he admitted that he is very happy for that as he wants to score as many goals as he can.

The Englishman spoke about his feeling after breaking this record as he said, according to Sky Sports: “It was hard not to think about it going into the game being level. As always I wanted to win the game first and foremost, but of course, I wanted to score as a striker. To get that goal early on and get that record was a great feeling and I could enjoy the rest of the game.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is per上海夜网fect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He also added that he can feel how he has improved: “This year I would say physically I have improved, recovery from games, getting ready, we have such a busy schedule. Just making sure I’m ready for each game, eating right, recovering right with ice baths. I feel really good. I feel sharp and at my best.”

In the end, Harry Kane also thanked his teammates for making this possible to him: “I said to the lads before the game to try and set me up and they all did that, so I’ll have to take them out to dinner or something. That third goal today was good, the third goal against Burnley I think that summed up how I play with the tackle and then the touch and finish so there’s been some good goals, but hopefully some better ones in 2018.”

FA Cup to trial VAR technology next year

The FA insist they are open to implementing new technologies into football.

The VAR(video assistant referee) will be tried out during the third round of this season’s FA Cup, the English Football Association confirmed.

The technology will be used for the first time on the Island during Brighton’s clash with Crystal Palace on Monday, 8 January 2018. The VAR will also be used in a number of selected fixtures throughout the rest of the competition.

In fact, the very first time the new system was used was when England faced Germany in an international friendly on Wembley. However, the video assistant referee was simply tested and not executed in play.Pep Guardiola agrees that the domestic Treble isn’t enough  Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – After winning the domestic Treble for the first time in English football history, Pep Guardiola still reckons it isn’t enough for Manchester City.Pep Guardiola…

“The FA has always been open to trialling new innovations and was heavily involved in the advancement of上海夜生活论坛 goal-line technology before it was introduced,” said the FA’s director of professional game relations Andy Ambler as quoted by BBC.

“The trialling of the VAR system in this season’s Emirates FA Cup from the third round is a continuation of that and further demonstrates that whilst being the most famous and historic domestic cup competition in the world it is also modern, progressive and innovative.”

The English Football Association also clarified that the VAR will only be used to counteract “clear and obvious errors” on certain situations: goals, penalties, straight red cards or mistaken yellow/red cards.

Bonucci expecting a Milan victory in Serie A derby

The Italian is grateful for his time with the Nerazzurri, but hopes to come out as a victor after the clash between Inter and AC Milan.

Leonardo Bonucci has looked back on his spell with Inter Milan ahead of the Serie A derby on Sunday. The Italy international completed a shocking move during the summer as he swapped the Nerezzurri with the Rossoneri in a record €40m deal.

Even though Bonucci is thankful for his great time at Inter, he is expecting a win for his new club AC Milan despite a rather shaky start of the season.

“I arrived when I was 17 years old and had two splendid years in their youth academy, where I really improved a lot,” Bonucci told Tencent Sports.

“They are a good side with some great individual talents and chose an important coach in Luciano Spalletti.

“We’ll have to be very wary and give our best. I would take Antonio Candreva and Eder off the Inter squad, as they are my Italy team-mates and they’re two really great guys.Ernesto Valverde praises Lionel Messi’s “fantastic” impact Andrew Smyth – Ernesto Valverde praised a not fully-fit Lionel Messi’s impact as Barcelona came from behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1 on Wednesday.

“I predict a Milan victory, but I won’t tell you [by] how much.”

The Italian also shared a few words regarding his choice to join the Rossoneri, stating that the new challenge at San Siro is what brought him to AC Milan.

“This stadium is the history of football, the most important arena in Italy. Stepping into San Siro always has an effect on you,

“The Rossoneri project is what pushed me to choose this great challenge. I knew there would be difficulties, but I accepted it because I wanted to challenge myself again.

“The objective is to set no limitations in Serie A or the Europa League. Qua上海夜生活网lification for the Champions League must be the minimum target, as Milan have to play in that tournament every year.”

Smalling: “I don’t have to prove anything”

Chris Smalling wasn’t called up to the national team by Gareth Southgate last time but the Englishman insisted that he has nothing to prove to the national team coach as he is playing regularly under José Mourinho.

The 27-year old has been an important part of Manchester United squad but Gareth Southgate said that he isn’t sure about Smalling’s passing ability – the defender remains calm though as he mentioned that he is playing under one of the greatest managers and he is happy for it. He didn’t want to criticize Southgate but he said that he won’t prove him anything.

The central defender spoke about this situation as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I don’t feel like I really need to prove anything to Gareth because I play under one of the biggest and most successful managers in Jose and he’s only going to pick the best players. While I’m playing regularly and he is happy I think ultimately if my season carries on like this and we have a successful season and our team still concedes very few go上海夜生活als, then I think it gives him maybe no choice in the summer but to pick me.”Top 5 Premier League players in September’s last weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – A fresh Premier League fixture just ended, which means we can talk about the Top 5 best players of September’s last weekend.After a fresh…

He added that he feels really good and thinks that he is doing well: “I’ve been getting a good run of games over these last few months and I’m feeling good and that’s the feeling you want, you want to be able to play regular games and be a part of a successful team. So far we have been successful, it’s just making sure we keep this going and improve on last year where we got two trophies and we want to at least beat that.”

Smalling is sure that the fact that he plays regularly under José Mourinho should be enough: “I play for one of the biggest clubs and under one of the most successful managers in Jose and while that’s the case I think, ultimately, it is your club form that decides whether you play at a World Cup because there aren’t that many England games throughout the season.”

PSG: Mourinho or Allegri to take over

Doesn’t matter how good your team started the season, if you have problems with the world’s most expensive player, that means you could get sacked anytime

Unai Emery’s team has been fantastic this season, as PSG are still unbeaten, having won 16 games while drawing only 2. However, even these stunning numbers could prove less than enough to save the Spaniard’s job in Paris.

There has been a lot of rumours going around about the relationship between the world’s most expensive player Neymar, and the Paris Saint-Germain coach and some say that Emery’s inability to please the Brazilian might cost him a lot.

Despite the former Sevilla coach’s best efforts, he struggles to hide that there is something wrong.

“For me, what happens on the field is the most important thing. All that goes on outside is not the most important. What is important is what happens on the pitch,” Emery protested last week.Ian Wright criticizes Emery for the captain choice Nedim Maric – Manchester United and Arsenal participated in a draw which saw some uninspiring football come to light.Neither Emery of Solskjaer will be pleased with the…

The Spaniard’s job is probably not in immediate danger, as the club’s results are outstanding, but pressure will gather on his shoulders once the Champions League returns in the second half of the season. If PSG fail to reach the round of the last 4, that might be the end of the Emery era.

There are two managers heavily linked with the Ligue 1 leaders. One of them is Jose Mourinho, who is currently the boss of Manchester United, and the other one is Massimiliano Allegri, the head coach of Juventus.

Mourinho is not entirely satisfied with life at Old Trafford, due to a clash of personalities with chairman Ed Woodward, and th上海夜生活网e Special One has already indicated that he can’t see himself at United for a long period of time.

On the other hand, Allegri took Juventus to the Champions League final last season, where they were beaten by Real Madrid. However, he is reportedly a better tactician than Unai Emery is in the eyes of PSG.

If Unai Emery wants to stay the manager in Paris, he needs to keep up the good work and get the expected results for the board.

Benzema blames Ronaldo and Zidane for Real situation

Real上海夜生活 Madrid are going through a real crisis in La Liga. The draw against Atletico has seen them falling ten points below league leaders Barcelona.

Having been identified as a reason for the underwhelming start of the season, Karim Benzema defends himself, saying that manager Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo share the blame for the lack of goals.

Real Madrid have only scored 22 goals this La Liga season, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema each scoring only once. The attack’s lack of efficiency has had a huge impact on their standings in the league, where they are currently third, six points behind Valencia and ten behind Barcelona.

Karim Benzema is unhappy with the fact that he has been pointed as the main responsible for the lack of goals and has made his frustrations known to the club’s president, Florentino Perez. According to Diario Goal, the French striker said that the blame should be shared between him, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane.Ronaldo scores in Juventus’ victory vs Bayer Leverkusen Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – With goals from Higuain, Bernardeschi, and Ronaldo, Juventus defeated Bayer Leverkusen in their second Champions League match.Juventus really needed a victory after the initial…

According to the source, Benzema feels that he would be much more effective if Ronaldo wouldn’t move so often in his area of action, in central positions. Furthermore, the French striker believes that Zidane allows Ronaldo freedom of movement on the pitch because of his superstar status at the club, but this affects the performances of the team.

The report also suggests that Benzema asked Perez to leave the club if the situation doesn’t change. The ex-Lyon striker arrived at Santiago Bernabeu in 2009. He played 378 matches for the club, during which he scored 182 goals.

Benzema started the match against Atletico Madrid (0-0) as a central striker, but didn’t have any goalscoring opportunities during the 75 minutes he spent on the pitch. He was substituted with Marco Asensio, but Real still didn’t manage to win and lost two important points in the title race in La Liga.

Thompson happy about the youngsters in the national team

It was a bold decision from Gareth Southgate to call up three relatively unknown youngsters – Joe Gomez, Tammy Abraham and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. But Phil Thompson is very happy and praises the Englishman for his decision.

The trio have been rewarded for establishing themselves as regular first-team players at Liverpool, Swansea and Crystal Palace respectively, with Abraham and Loftus-Cheek currently on loan from Chelsea, according to Sky Sports. Southgate made eight changes from the squad that secured his team the World Cup qualification.

Phil Thompson had only words of praise for Southgate as he said: “I think it is right to be giving these lads call-ups.
