Trump seeks to ‘reboot’ U.S. relationship with Egypt in Monday talks

WASHINGTON ( ) – President Donald Trump will seek to rebuild the U.S. relationship with Egypt at a Monday meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi focused on security issues and military aid, a senior White House official said on Friday.

“He wants to use President Sisi’s visit to reboot the bilateral relationship and build on the strong connection the two presidents established when they first met in New York last September,” the official said, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity.

Egypt has long been one of Washington’s closest allies in the Middle East, receiving $1.3 billion in U.S. military aid annually. The country is fighting an Islamist insurgency in Sinai, and hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and police have been killed fighting insurgents.

The bilateral relationship was strained when former President Barack Obama criticized Sisi for cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s oldest Islamist group.

Sisi does not make a distinction between the Brotherhood, which says it is peaceful, and Islamic State militants. Egypt considers the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group.

Obama froze aid to the country for two years after Sisi, then a general, overthrew President Mohamed Mursi in mid-2013 after mass protests against Mursi’s rule. Mursi, a Muslim Brotherhood member, had been elected the previous year.

Human rights groups have estimated that at least 40,000 political prisoners have been detained by Sisi’s government.

Trump’s relationship with Sisi got off to a good start when they met last September in New York while Trump was running for president, the White House said.

Trump supports Sisi’s approach to counterterrorism, which includes both military and political efforts, his efforts to reform Egypt’s economy, and Sisi’s calls for “reform and moderation of Islamic discourse,” the official said.

Asked whether the United States would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group, as Egypt has, the official said Trump was interested in hearing Sisi’s views during the meeting.

“We, along with a number of countries, have some concerns about various activities that the Muslim Brotherhood has conducted in the region,” the official said.

‘MORE DISCREET WAY’

Sisi’s visit comes as the Trump administration has proposed massive cuts to U.S. foreign aid, the details of which are still to be determined. The White House anticipates aid to Egypt will continue but provided no details on Friday.

“We’re in the budget process right now and those discussions are ongoing as to how it will be broken out,” the official told reporters.

Some U.S. lawmakers have opposed loosening restrictions on aid to Egypt because of concerns about human rights in the country. The Trump administration intends to address human rights issues behind closed doors, the White House official said.

“Our approach is to handle these types of sensitive issues in a private, more discreet way. We believe it’s the most effective way to advance those issues to a favorable outcome,” the official said.

The official would not say whether Trump would discuss with Sisi the case of Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian-American who works with street children and was arrested in May 2014 on human trafficking charges. Rights groups have called for her release.

Hijazi has been held in custody for 33 months in violation of Egyptian law, which states that the maximum period for pretrial detention is 24 months.

A verdict was set to be read in a March 23 court session, but was postponed with no reason stated by the judge until April 16. The maximum possible jail sentence in her case is 25 years.

The White House is aware of Hijazi’s case “at the most senior levels,” the official 上海夜网told reporters.

“We are going to address this with Egypt in a way that we think maximizes the chances her case will be resolved in a satisfactory way,” the official said.

Investor Ackman opposes United Technologies’ aerospace merger with Raytheon: source

( ) – Billionaire investor William Ackman’s activist hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management LP is opposing United Technologies Corp’s planned $120 billion aerospace merger with defense contractor Raytheon Co, a person familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

The move makes Ackman the first major Wall Street figure to come out against the deal. On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump expressed concerns over the merger’s impact on competition, though he also said he hoped the deal would happen.

Ackman wrote an email to United Technologies CEO Greg Hayes early on Sunday morning to express his concerns about the proposed deal after reading press reports about it, the source said.

The fund manager, whose firm owns roughly 0.67% of United Technologies, had previously supported the company in its plans to split into three businesses – aerospace, Otis elevators and Carrier air conditioners.

“We are extremely concerned that such a transaction will significantly lower the business quality of pro-forma United Technologies’ aerospace business, and, to make matters worse, will be accomplished through the highly dilutive issuance of large amounts of Un上海夜生活网ited Technologies stock,” Ackman’s email, seen by , said.

A spokesman for Pershing Square declined to comment. Raytheon did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

“We are confident that our shareholders will see the merits of this transaction and the value it brings to them and the company. We will be working diligently in the days and weeks ahead to make sure that the details of the transaction are presented to and fully understood by all shareholders,” United Technologies said in a statement.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on Pershing Square’s opposition to the deal.

Activist hedge fund Third Point LLC also has a stake in United Technologies. Like Pershing Square, it supported the company’s break-up, but its views on the Raytheon deal are not known. A Third Point spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment.

The merger would reshape the competitive landscape by forming a conglomerate which spans commercial aviation and defense procurement. United Technologies provides primarily commercial plane makers with electronics, communications and other equipment, whereas Raytheon mainly supplies the U.S. government with military aircraft and missile equipment.

United Technologies and Raytheon shares have dropped 7% and 4.5% respectively since their deal was announced, as investors expressed disappointment with the low value of synergies the companies announced. Investors also fret that major clients of the companies such as the Pentagon would seek to review their supply chains.

Shareholders of United Technologies and Raytheon would have to approve the deal in separate votes.

Activist hedge funds are increasingly targeting announced deals and are seeking to upend them, often by betting that the acquirer’s stock would go up were it to walk away from the purchase.

Earlier this year, activist hedge fund Starboard Value LP sought to muster opposition against Bristol-Myers Squibb Co’s $74 billion acquisition of biotech Celgene Corp, but abandoned the effort after two leading proxy advisory firms backed the deal.

United Technologies’ deal with Raytheon also faces regulatory hurdles. The U.S. Defense Department and big customers like Boeing Co, Lockheed Martin Corp and Northrop Grumman Corp will have a lot of clout in the antitrust review, and may worry about over-reliance on one company for a big suite of products.

ACKMAN’S CONCERNS

Ackman’s email said that if the company moves forward with the deal, he expects the substantial majority of other shareholders to also line up against it.

The deal with Raytheon would be structured as an all-stock merger of equals because United Technologies, which currently has a market capitalization of $106 billion, would separately spin off Carrier and Otis. United Technologies bulked up in aerospace last year with its $23 billion acquisition of avionics maker Rockwell Collins.

“We cannot comprehend why United Technologies would attempt to effectuate a merger with Raytheon now, when United Technologies’ shares are likely to be materially higher after the business separation is effectuated early next year,” Ackman’s email said.

This year, Ackman’s firm has been one of the hedge fund industry’s best performers delivering gains of nearly 40% in the first four months of the year. This follows a rough patch where he faced big losses on Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc and Herbalife Nutrition Ltd and lost a proxy fight with Automatic Data Processing Inc. He has vowed to make back the money that he lost by reshaping his organization.

U.S. House Speaker Ryan running for re-election: spokeswoman

WASHINGTON ( ) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan is running again for the job in the next Congress, a spokeswoman said on Thursday after a media report quoted several unidentified House Republicans as saying they expected him to step down next week.

“He is running,” Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said.

The Hill cited four House Republicans as saying that they expected Ryan to step aside as Speaker after next Tuesday’s general election.

“Speculation is growing that Paul will not return,” the Hill quoted a “senior GOP lawmaker close to leadership” as saying.

It quoted a member of the Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative Republicans, as saying that if Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wins, Ryan will get “a good share of the blame” among House members who support Republican candidate Donald Trump.

Ryan last month told fellow Republicans that he would not defend or campaign for Trump and would instead focus on re-electing Republicans to keep the majority in the House.

This angered some Trump supporters in the House, who felt the Wisconsin co上海夜生活论坛ngressman should stand by Trump. One of them, Representative Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, tweeted: “if Paul Ryan isn’t for Trump, then I’m not for Paul Ryan.”

But Ryan, who as Speaker is the country’s highest-ranking Republican, has a great deal of support in the Republican caucus, and it is far from clear that his critics would be able to oust him if they tried.

House Republicans, who currently number 246, plan to have closed-door leadership elections in mid-November. Ryan is expected to win their nomination for Speaker at that gathering, but the actual election to the Speaker’s post would not be held until the new Congress convenes in January.

All members of the House, both Republican and Democrat, will vote in the Speaker election and Ryan will need 218 votes – a majority of the House’s 435 members – to win. This could be a challenge if Republicans lose a substantial number of seats in next week’s elections, and if some of those who remain decide to oppose Ryan.

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.

Herrera lauds Sanchez’ workload

The Chilean’s debut for the Red Devils left a lot of people impressed, but one of his team-mates was struck by a different aspect of Sanchez’ game.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed how intrigued he was by the Chilean’s tireless work ethics in the Red Devils 4-0 FA Cup win over Yeovil on Friday.

Sanchez took part in the hosts two opening goals and created a lot of chances for his team-mates, but it was another thing that caught Herrera’s eyes during the game.

– Yeah, amazing. He has played very good, but what I really like from him is the way he fights when he loses the ball. – the midfielder told MUTV.Opinion: Solskjaer needs patience from Manchester United Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – As we enter into one of the most complicated moments for Solskjaer, we believe Manchester United needs to be patient with him.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer…

– He is always ready to be the first defender of the team. That’s going to be very important for us.

– Of course, we know his quality. He is going to be amazing for us but the way his first, the way he defends I really like it.

When it comes to United’s goals this season and their look on the FA Cup, Herrera added:

– We have won the FA Cup two seasons ago and last season we won three trophies, so this club is about titles, and we are not going to give 上海夜网any competition away, we are going to fight for everything.

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.”

Guardiola admitted that he didn’t expect his City to play like that

Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City coach, admitted that he is surprised by his side’s form and performances just like everybody else and he didn’t expect this thing to happen before the season has started.

Manchester City managed to win 16 Premier League matches in a row (which is the new record) and in total, they won 17 out of their first 18 league matches of the season. Guardiola’s career best is 20 wins in a row with Bayern Munich and he is about to improve even this record if he will continue like that – but he previously insisted that this record is meaningless if they will not win a trophy.

The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona coach spoke about his feelings about this successful run as he said, according to Goal: “No [I did not expect this], I don’t know [what a good points total would have been]. I’m glad to be where we are. I would have liked to be here at the beginning of the season, but I didn’t expect it. I repeat this is not normal. This is not a situation I am used to.”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 perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He admitted that he expected the at least a few losses will come: “I expect to lose games and drop more points, but I am glad. We are going to fight to continue to be unbeaten. That is going to happen, we will be beaten. But we are going to fight to be unbeaten.”

In the end, Pep Guardiola insisted that he is certain that they will drop points at some point: “There is no doubt about it because of the way we pla上海夜网y at Leicester, the way we play against Tottenham and Swansea, the players showed me they are still hungry to win another game. We will drop points and then after that, we will see how we react.”

Wenger vs Mourinho

Jose Mourinho accused Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger of lying about Alexandre Lacazette’s fitness before the showdown between the Gunners and Manchester United last weekend

The Red Devils coach claimed the Frenchman wasn’t honest about his striker’s fitness, and Wenger felt like he had to hit back.

It was France international Alexandre Lacazette who wasn’t supposed to feature against United on Saturday, as Wenger had previously stated he wasn’t in the right condition to play. Not only has he played, the striker managed to score.

As the former Lyon star’s presence put pressure on Mourinho’s men, he accused Pep Guardiola of being similarly dishonest when the Manchester City coach said David Silva isn’t ready to play on Sunday.

The Manchester United manager took his shot at Wenger and Guardiola during a press conference,上海夜生活论坛 when assessing his injured players after their 2-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.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…

“The truth is Eric Bailly, no chance for the weekend, Phil Jones a chance, [Marouane] Fellaini a chance, Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] a big chance and [Nemanja] Matic is injured but will play for sure. [Michael] Carrick no chance,” Mourinho said.

“I’m telling the truth, he’s injured but will play for sure. No stories of Lacazette or David Silva. All the truth.”

Once Wenger heard what the Portuguese coach had to say, he couldn’t not comment on the issue, and he replied to Mourinho’s claims during a news conference ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League game against BATE.

“I though he wouldn’t play, yes, but in the end, he could play. What did you want me to do, to leave him at home?” the Frenchman replied.

“I’m always honest and I thought really he wouldn’t play. He had a test on Friday morning and we were not sure he would play. After he tried, and he played. That’s part of football,” Wenger said.

Puel praised Vardy for being a complete player

Claude Puel admitted that he is very happy to have Jamie Vardy in his team as he is a complete player – the Frenchman praised his player before his side’s trip to Newcastle and it will definitely boost his confidence.

The Englishman has scored seven times so far in the Premier League and he will try to add another goal in the upcoming match against Newcastle. Puel won three of his first six matches in charge of his new club but he is still waiting for his first away win – and he wants to get it against experienced Rafel Benitez as his Newcastle have been struggling a bit recently.

When speaking about Jamie Vardy and his contribution, Claude Puel said, according to Sky Sports: “I think Jamie Vardy is the complete player. I would always prefer to have him in my team. He’s enjoying his football, it’s amazing to see. He works hard for the team and always has a positive attitude.”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 perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He added that it’s always good上海夜网 to have different types of strikers: “If we can help him to score it will be 50 goals, which is a good thing. He is a great player, and now with a lot of experience, maturity in the Premier League he can give a lot to the team. I was surprised to know his qualities. It’s important to have different possibilities for players. Demarai Gray can play on the side, on the wing, behind Jamie and as a striker. He has all the quality.”

Puel, in the end, compared Vardy with Okazaki and Mahrez: “Shinji Okazaki works very hard for the team, and it is a pleasure to watch. Riyad Mahrez has the ability to play in this position too. He has a good understanding with Jamie. It’s important to see in different games, different possibilities.”

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.

Preview: Monaco – RB Leipzig

Monaco and RB Leipzig are separated by two points at the bottom of Group G. The French team are last, with two points, while their German opponents are third, with four points after four rounds.

Flashscore present the key facts before the match:

AS Monaco have positive statistics facing teams from Germany in Europe’s premier competition with 7 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses.

When RB Leipzig score in the Champions League (CL) it’s mainly the first half – 4 of their 5 goals in this season’s competition have come in the first 45 minutes and overall they haven’t scored after the 48th minute in any CL match.

After reaching the semi-finals in the last CL campaign, Monaco have failed to shine this season. They haven’t manage to win a single match or score more than 1 goal in the 4 games so far (3 goals in total).

In the last 2 CL matches Monaco have even given away a 1-0 lead, with the opponents turning it into a draw and a defeat, respectively.

Leipzig have lost 5 of 10 competitive away matches this season and have conceded 7 out of 10 goals 上海夜生活论坛in the first half.Koulibaly warns about Genk danger Nedim Maric – The reliable Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly warned his team about Genk’s quality as he’s played for the Belgian side in the past.Napoli opened their…

Despite losing both home matches in the CL, Monaco remain a big threat at home in Ligue 1 (P 6 W5 D1) and have scored 21 scored goals. In 4 of those matches they scored at least 3 goals.

Leipzig have conceded 6 goals in the 1st half of their Bundesliga away matches (4 in the 2nd) and that could be handy for Monaco, as the team has already scored 12 goals in the first 45 minutes of their home matches (9 in the 2nd half) in Ligue 1.

It’s not easy to be leading after 45 minutes against Monaco, as the team were only behind on 3 occasions at half-time this season.

Missing players

Monaco: T. Lemar (shoulder injury), D. Sidibe (injury), L. Badiashille (doubtful)

RB Leipzig: S. Ilsanker (toe injury), F. Coltorti (doubtful).

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.

Cascarino thinks that Morata is “too nice for Chelsea”

The former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino, thinks that Alvaro Morata is “too nice” and the Blues are missing “the nastiness of Diego Costa” as they are no longer able to bully their opponents.

Diego Costa managed to score 20 goals in the previous season but after that, Antonio Conte decided to part company with the Spanish forward – and he brought Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid as the replacement. The former Juventus striker has been doing well so far as he scored seven times in 11 matches but Cascarino feels that he is not the right man for the team.

Cascarino spoke about Morata’s contribution as he said, according to Goal: “Alvaro Morata is a big talent but I wonder if Chelsea are missing the nastiness of Diego Costa up front. Morata is such an honest player: [against Roma] he literally picked up Federico Fazio when the Roma 上海夜生活网defender fell to the floor. I can just imagine Costa shoving Fazio aside if he had been in the same position.”Jamie Carragher puts Chelsea over Manchester United and Arsenal Nedim Maric – In an uneventful derby, last night, Manchester United and Arsenal both got point each.Top four-fight this season looks like it’s going to be between…

He thinks that Chelsea are missing a rude attacker like Costa was: “Morata scores plenty of goals and is a fine all-around player but Costa was always on the edge; bullying people, fouling or being fouled. Perhaps Chelsea as a whole have become nicer to play against. I remember I would pick up opponents in the early part of my career but, by the end, I certainly didn’t. I learned that no centre back would do the same for me.”

The former player of the London club also made a comment about the performance of Cesc Fabregas: “Roma’s third goal provided a classic illustration of why Cesc Fabregas should only be part of a midfield pairing when Chelsea are playing against fairly weak opposition — otherwise he should be in a midfield trio. He gave the ball away to Aleksandar Kolarov and then it was as though he had a parachute on as he tracked back to try to make up for his mistake. He has never been the quickest but he seems to have lost half a yard of pace.”

Updates about Carvajal’s condition

Excellent news are coming from Spain, where it was announced that Dani Carvajal is out of any danger.

The Spanish full-back of Real Madrid was diagnosed with a viral infection of the pericardium and was ruled out of action indefinitely. So far, no news emerged about Carvajal’s situation and there were worries about his general health condition, after the medical staff of Real Madrid said that they don’t know when will the player be ready to play again. He was offered treatment and was kept under supervision by the team’s doctors.

Transfer embargo stopped stopped Griezmann from leaving

The ex-agent of Antoine Griezmann has revealed that the Frenchman was really close to United this summer.

The France international would have certainly joined Manchester United if it had not been for Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban, according to the player’s former agent.

Griezmann was a target for a number of European clubs, with the Red Devils being in the leading position for his signature as they submitted a bid close to €100 million in the very start of the summer.

Yet, the 26-year-old confirmed that he would remain at Atletico Madrid since his club needs him now most than ever due to their FIFA-imposed ban on adding new players to their ranks.Report: Mourinho rejects several offers amid Real Madrid talk Andrew Smyth – Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down several job offers in Europe as he eyes up a potential shock return to Real Madrid.

“Griezmann hasn’t felt able to leave Atletico,” Olhats, who was Griezmann’s manager until September 2016, told France Football . “It showed the integrity of his links with the club, [who were] unable to sign players. Without that上海夜生活网 ban, he would have gone, without a doubt.”

“His omnipresence in the media has not helped him to relaunch himself on a sporting level,” he said. “The balance between the search for performance and the desire to sell your image is very fragile. Unconsciously, you can choose the wrong side.

“There are a lot of aspects of show business in football these days. Antoine is immersed in that inescapable logic at the moment. Now, he’s a footballer, not a singer.

“The press and marketing side of Antoine’s career are handled by his sister Maud, who know all about that. It was decided that Griezmann’s image would take a different path with new methods.”

Speaking to L’Equipe, the 18-year-old also revealed that he held discussions with Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, but eventually turned down a move to England: “Guardiola is a coach who breathes football, he won everywhere and he transmits passion and makes you want to play. Drogba tips for Neymar and Mbappe to win Ballon d’Or one day Nedim Maric – One of the best strikers in the Premier League era talked about PSG’s sensational duo and their chances of winning individual awards in the…
