Mourinho: I will coach Real Madrid one day

Collapse )

"They are writing that I have one foot in Madrid and one in Milan, but this is not true," Italian press reported him as telling Panorama in an interview.

"It is true that I will coach Real Madrid one day. I have managed a big club in England, I am coaching one now in Italy and I will coach a big club in Spain."

Won't be surprised if he comes in the summer, tbh.
I'd like to see some continuity when it comes to managers and why did we get rid of Capello if we're just going to replace him with Mourinho? Tiki taka he is not... but he does get results so IDK

Henry to NY Red Bulls?

My first post (about time)! I hadn't seen this posted, but if it has... oops!

Thierry Henry has reportedly signed an initial deal that will see the Frenchman play in the United States next season...

As reported by Sport, Barcelona striker and French goalscoring legend Thierry Henry has signed a pre-contract agreement that will see him move to the United States' Major League Soccer to play with the New York Red Bulls after the World Cup.

After an initially rocky start in his first season at Barcelona, Henry had a successful year with the Blaugrana under coach Pep Guardiola. This season, however, the Frenchman has struggled with injury, and has seen his minutes cut down substantially with the club. He has been linked to a summer transfer away from the Camp Nou for much of the season.

Despite his age, 'Titi' remains a prolific goalscorer. During his time at Arsenal, the Frenchman scored 174 goals in 254 matches, while at Barcelona he found the back of the net 35 times in 78 games.


Thoughts? I expected him to leave Barca, but not for MLS!

This is a Villarreal post

Okay... Villarreal is a team with a short numer of fans. Okay. But they deserve a post. Because there are two players, two very important players in the team that have played their last match in 'El Madrigal'


Javi Venta (¡¡SELECCIÓN!! XD) and Robert Pirés.

So I'm happily studying and then I come across this..

Cesc Fabregas is ready to walk out on

Arsenal next week.

The Gunners skipper will decide his future this weekend after crunch talks with boss Arsene Wenger.

But reports in Spain quoted Fabregas as saying: "If I ever leave Arsenal it will be to play for Barcelona.

"I would like to go, whether they want me or not is another matter.

"I am 23 years old and I have a long career in front of me. I've never hidden the fact that playing for Barcelona is a dream that I would like to fulfil.
He added: "I would like to know my future before the World Cup because to play with other things in my head will not benefit anyone."

I'm no Arsenal fan but these rumours are growing. Surely Cesc won't leave Arsenal right now?


Leonardo quits

Leonardo leaves post as Milan manager by mutual consent

• Adriano Galliani announces manager's departure
• Leonardo's relationship with Berlusconi had deteriorated

Leonardo has left Milan by mutual consent following weeks of speculation over his position at the club in the Italian press.

The manager's relationship with Silvio Berlusconi has deteriorated after the owner publicly criticised his team selection on a number of occasions, and the only surprise over today's announcement was that it should arrive the day before their final game of the season, against Juventus.

"We are here to announce that we will be parting ways by mutual consent, in a calm and clear way that is befitting of our relationship down the years," said the Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani. "There are no surprises, everything is very clear, today as always. We have reached the end.

I am gutted but I completely understand Leo's decision and I wish him all the best. :(

Schweinsteiger talks; what does it mean? Not much.

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has
hinted that he may not stay at the Allianz Arena forever.

The 25-year-old Germany international is set to play a key role for the national team in South Africa after enjoying a solid season with Louis van Gaal's treble chasing side. Yet he came in for stick from Bayern fans earlier this season when things were not going according to plan and this could prompt a move.

The 25-year-old told Bild newspaper: "It was often the case in the first half of the season that I would misplace a pass in the first 20 minutes and I would be whistled at immediately.

"There were even whistles for me at the annual general meeting and that hurt."

He added: "You never know what happens after a World Cup. I am really happy that we played such a good season, but to say now that I will always play for Bayern Munich would be wrong. Then if you do actually move, it would be an unfair proclamation to make to the fans."

If he did choose to leave Bayern, Schweinsteiger admitted that the Premier League would be an attractive destination.

He added: "When things were not going well, we were being whistled at immediately in the Allianz Arena, but that sort of thing does not happen in England. (LOL what?)

"I would like to have the whole stadium behind us even in difficult times."

"I cahnt undastand dis guy"

I really doubt Basti Schweini would leave Bayern, but negl..I would love to see him in the Premier League. If he were ever to move, what club would you like to see him in or think he would fit well with?


i was hoping we here would push for play offs next season....maybe not.....

PNE facing financial crisis

Deepdale outfit issued with winding up petition

Preston are the latest club to be issued with a winding up petition from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.

The Championship side were forced to borrow £550,000 from leisure tycoon Trevor Hemmings' investment vehicle Guild Ventures on Thursday to ensure the players' wages were paid on time.

Hemmings' investment in the Deepdale club now stands at £13.82million including interest, but even that has not been able to stave off HMRC.

The move comes following North End's "failure to pay certain liabilities", and Preston North End Plc will be suspended from trading on Alternative Investment Market (AIM) stock exchange from Monday morning, pending clarification of the company's financial position.

Preston said in a statement: "The board of Preston North End announces that, having received a winding up petition from HM Revenue and Customs, following failure to pay certain liabilities, the Company's Ordinary Shares will be suspended from trading on AIM.

"The suspension will take effect from 7am on May 17 2010 pending clarification of the Company's financial position.

"The board are currently considering the options available and a further announcement will be made as soon as possible."


For a Championship club to owe that much money is concerning. The board here have always been very lacking with funds for players but I didn't expect this to come. Fergie no2 is really going to have to dip into the free/loan market. :|

O god. Not this story again.

Paris Hilton was just in Madrid for business (before heading on to the glitz and glamour of Cannes) but Cristiano Ronaldo wanted her to make time for pleasure, too.

The soccer stud, who's been romantically linked to Kim Kardashian and Paris herself, allegedly tried to meet up with the heiress while she was in Spain this week.

"He texted her when he found out she was there, but she only had a few hours because she was in back-to-back meetings," an insider tells me. "So they didn't end up meeting up."

But sources say they plan to hang out soon in a very exotic locale...

The two will probably get together next month in South Africa, where they'll both be attending the World Cup.

A source close to the soccer stud says, "Cristiano has never stopped talking to Paris since their hot romance last year. He thinks that she's sexy and so much fun to be around."

But a source close to Paris says she just wants to have fun for now. "She obviously thinks he's gorgeous and very sweet but she's not interested in getting serious with anyone right now. She's having way too much fun being single."

This story will never not be funny. He needs to choose. Paris or Kim.
