Lionel Messi says he would vote for his PSG team-mates Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for this year’s Ballon d’Or

Published

on

Lionel Messi has stated that he would vote for his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates Neymar or Kylian Mbappe for the Ballon d’Or, despite being one of the favourites to win the award for the seventh time.

The trio alongside fellow teammate goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is among the 30-players shortlisted for the men’s award. 

The prestigious prize, given to the best footballer of the year returns this year having been cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Messi, 34, is the favourite to scoop the top prize ahead of the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho in the bookmakers’ odds.  But the Argentine has admitted that he would vote for his new teammates Mbappe and Neymar.

‘Obviously, I have two players in my team that I would vote for, Ney and Kylian,’ Messi told L’Equipe via RMC Sport. 

The former Barcelona superstar also admitted that Lewandowski and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema have enjoyed good seasons individually while explaining the importance of winning major trophies.

‘Afterwards, there are players at the individual level who have had a great season, like Lewandowski, Benzema,’ he added. ‘But it’s hard to say because what you have done at the collective level means a lot to win the Golden Ball. 

‘Lately, the titles have a lot of weight, if you won the Champions League, the Euro, the Copa America.

‘I think in previous years, we looked more for the player of the year, the best player. But now the titles also have a lot of weight.’

Manchester United V Liverpool Live: Reds Sink Solskjaer’s Red Devils Thanks To Salah

Published

on

It was not the Theater of Dreams for Manchester United, but rather the Theater of Nightmares on Sunday night. On Matchday 9 of the Premier League, the Red Devils suffered a heavy 0-5 loss to Liverpool.

At the end of the first half, the score was already 0-4. The first goal fell in the fifth minute of play from Naby Keita’s feet. Barely eight minutes later, Diogo Jota doubled the score.

Mo Salah then continued the offensive festival with two more goals before halftime leaving the host with a 0-4 defeat.

Not yet satisfied, the Egyptian offered himself a third achievement in the 50th. Cristiano Ronaldo then thought to reduce the score, but his goal was eventually called off for offside after VAR intervened.

As if this were not enough for the Mancunians, Paul Pogba, entered the game at half-time, got a direct red card on the hour mark for a tackle on Naby Keita, who had to leave the field on a stretcher.

In the standings, Jurgen Klopp’s men remain 2nd (21 points) to Chelsea. Manchester United is 7th with 14 points.

Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Kenny Dalglish’s reactions couldn’t be any more different as Liverpool tear Manchester United apart at Old Trafford

The scenes in the stands at Old Trafford couldn’t be any more different as Liverpool raced to a 5-0 lead against Manchester United

Mohamed Salah completed his hat-trick just 4 minutes into the second half, poking the ball home after latching onto Jordan Henderson’s superb through ball.

A fantastic day for Liverpool at Old Trafford

Salah’s earlier goals in the first half saw the Reds go three and 4 up, while goals from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota put them in control.

Being 5-0 up at your biggest rival understandably sent the Liverpool fans into ecstasy and club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish couldn’t contain his excitement. 

In contrast, legendary Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson cut a completely miserable figure.

Sir Alex didn’t take the leaf out of the books of a number of Man United fans, who took it upon themselves to leave the ground shortly after Paul Pogba was sent off for a high challenge on Naby Keita.

A real contrast in emotions

That proved to be the final goal in an extraordinary clash at Old Trafford. 

However, the result will only raise further questions about manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who went into the match under pressure.

#ManLiver : Manchester United vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today

Published

on

Manchester United and Liverpool go head-to-head at Old Trafford this afternoon in the latest chapter from arguably the biggest rivalry in the English game – if not world football.

Liverpool enter the fixture in third place in the Premier League, knowing a win here would bring them to within a point of leaders Chelsea. Last time out, Jurgen Klopp’s side edged Atletico Madrid 3-2 in an exciting Champions League group-stage meeting, in which Mohamed Salah was the star yet again. The forward netted a stunning solo goal against Man City earlier this month before repeating the trick in last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Watford, following those strikes with a brace against Atletico.

United, meanwhile, were also 3-2 winners in the Champions League in their most recent outing – a late Cristiano Ronaldo header sealing a stunning comeback win against visitors Atalanta. Prior to that game, criticism of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began to mount following a 4-2 loss at Leicester in the Premier League, a result that extended the Red Devils’ winless run in the division to three matches. Will seventh-placed United end that streak here? Can Solskjaer prove his quality against a rampant Liverpool and revered Klopp? Find out by following live updates from Man United vs Liverpool below, live.

I Will Win More Trophies With Man United – Ronaldo Tells Critics

Published

on

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has said he will silence his critics and that they “do not want to see” his defensive work.

Bennievibez reports that Ronaldo has been pivotal to United in Europe and the Premier League, providing late winners in both of their Champions League group-stage victories to date.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the Portuguese lambasted his critics for not seeing the positives of his game and said even as he enters his 20th season as a professional, his winning desire still burns as brightly as ever.

After breaking the all-time international goal netting record, Cristiano Ronaldo says it is not his time to retire from international football yet because he wants to set the target much higher.

He said: “I know when the team needs my help defensively. But my role in the club is to win, help the team to win, and to score goals – [the defensive side] is part of my job.

“The people who don’t want to see that is because they don’t like me but to be honest I’m 36, I win everything so am I going to be worried about the people who say bad things about me? I sleep good at night. I go to my bed with my conscience very good. Keep going with that because I will still close mouths and win things.

“Criticism is always part of the business. I’m not worried about that. And I see it as a good thing to be honest. If they worry about me or they speak about me, it’s because they know my potential and value in football still. So it’s good. I’ll give you an example: if you’re in a school and you’re the best student, you ask the worst student if he likes the best, they’ll say they don’t like him.

“I think the main word is that I’m still happy and enjoying football. It doesn’t matter how many things I won in my career. I win everything but I’m still motivated. I’m in a new chapter of my life, even with my age, and this is why I am here – to try to win and I think Manchester needs to be at this level of winning and thinking to win big things so I’m here to help.”

Speaking on the huge potential in the United team, Ronaldo said he believes in the squad to bring silverware back to Old Trafford for the first time since 2017.

He revealed instead of singing a song for his second United induction, he gave his teammates a motivational speech about how he wanted to use his winning mentality to take them to that level.

He said: “I said what I felt in that moment: that I’m here to win things.

“Manchester United is a sign [of] winning things and I’m not here for holidays. I said to them I see huge potential in this team; very young players, players with potential, and I’m here to win and to help the team to build new stuff.

“I didn’t sing because I told them that I sang a few years ago! But it was good. The boys, they understand me, it was a good speech and I was happy that night.

Livestream Chelsea vs Norwich EPL match free below.

Bennievibez reports that Chelsea clashes against Norwich City at Stamford Bridge this afternoon in the early kick-off of this weekend’s English Premier League match.

This online news platform understands that the Chelsea vs Norwich City EPL match is a match against the League Leaders and one of the bottoms in the league table.

Chelsea is at the summit, a point clear of Liverpool in second. Norwich meanwhile has had a real struggle on their return to the Premier League and is winless through the first eight games, sitting bottom of the table with just two points so far, scoring only two goals and conceding 16 in the first two months of the season.

Chelsea will be without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner for the game as they both sustained injuries in the 4-0 win against Malmo in midweek. Lukaku has an ankle problem while Werner twinged his hamstring in the first half of the comfortable win.

The Canaries have no new injury concerns heading into the game. Mathias Normann should be fit for the visitors but Todd Cantwell won’t be involved as he continues his comeback from injury.

The Blues have an early chance to put themselves four points clear of Liverpool in the standings if they beat Norwich, with Jurgen Klopp’s men not in action until Sunday when they play Manchester United.
