JUVE IS CONTE’S GREATEST COACHING ACHIEVEMENT

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has revealed that his greatest achievement as a coach is his Serie A win with Juventus.

The Italian took the then un-fancied team and won the title without losing any game in his debut season. The Turin-based side placed seventh the season but Conte was able to start a string of title wins at the club.

“The first Scudetto with Juventus as a coach was the greatest achievement of my career, the greatest joy. We won that year in an incredibly difficult situation, where we started out from seventh place and were not considered contenders at all. We created a remarkable alchemy and there was this unconditional faith. If I had said: ‘Let’s all throw ourselves off a building’ – we would’ve done it. There was such belief and unity between us,” the Blues manager disclosed.

WHY GUANGZHOU EVERGRANDE REIGN SUPREME?

Chinese domestic football changed since 2011. Guangzhou Evergrande lifted the Super League title. Since then till date, they have successfully defended that title by winning it four titles.

They have been decent this term but under Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, the team has stumbled in the final hurdle of this year’s tournament. Four games are left in the 2016 Chinese Super League season. Two victories will ensure the Asian Champions League winners lift the title. However, this is not surprising considering the amount of money spent.

Atletico Mineiro working Hard to go ahead in Hotel

Atletico Mineiro have slowly been working their way up the table in recent weeks following some impressive performances.

However, the team are paying the price for a very poor form shown during the months of June. Even though players like Robinho were at the top of their form, the club was unable to take advantage. After having played 13 games in the league, Atletico Mineiro are a distant ninth in the table. However, recent form gives them a lot of hope that they can make their way up the table. The club, though, do not seem to be resting on their laurels and are keen on strengthening the squad.

ARSENAL WANT BRAZILIAN STAR GABIGOL

English Premier League giant, Arsenal FC are reported to have submitted their bid for Brazilian star Gabigol.

ESPN Brazil report that Head Coach Arsene Wenger has decided to land the player this summer. The report claim they player Gabriel Barbosa, nicknamed ‘Gabigol’ for his striking exploits, could join the Gunners this summer.

The 19-year-old player confirmed that he has offers from other clubs but remains happy at his current club. “Yes, I have offers from some of the big clubs in Europe that interest me, but that is for my parents and my employers but I am happy at Santos.

Robinho has shocked football fans in Brazil

Robinho has shocked football fans in Brazil after recently sealing a move back to the Brazilian league with AtleticMinero.

In a recent meeting between AtleticMinero and Santos, who are the former club of Robinho, the striker was left out of the squad by manager Diego Aguirre. Aguirre later claimed that the decision was taken in order to give the player some rest after only recently returning to the Brazilian league. However, it is widely seen as a move to pacify supporters of the Santos section, who are infuriated by Robinho deciding to join one of their rivals.

Robinho said that he would be supporting Manchester City over Real Madrid

Former Brazilian international Robinho said that he would be supporting Manchester City over Real Madrid ahead of their Champions League semi-final clash.

Robinho stated that he hopes that Manchester City win the tie and make it to the finals. He said that Manchester City made a big investment in him and that this is a title that they have not won yet.

Manchester City made it to the semi-finals by beating the French side Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on aggregate.

Real Madrid overturned a 2-0 deficit against Wolfsburg to qualify for the semi –final. They were surprisingly defeated in Germany, but a Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick was enough to get them in the semi-final. Real Madrid will be competing for their 11th Champions League title while Manchester City will be hoping to win it for the first time.

The first leg of the game will be held at the Etihad Stadium on April 26th while the return leg will be on the 4th of May.

Robinho is trying to spark his career back to life

A few weeks ago, Robinho announced his desire to get a call-up from Dunga and have a chance to represent Brazil at the international stage and perform in their upcoming matches and competitions.

Robinho could never really live up to the hype that was created from the media. The Brazilian player attracted the attention of the world after Pele named Robinho as his natural heir but unfortunately for Robinho, he failed to perform at the level that everyone expected from him.

The 32 year old player managed to play in some of the biggest clubs in the world including: Real Madrid, Manchester City and Ac.Milan. Even though he had some memorable performances and even seasons with some of his former teams, it generally was a fairly disappointing playing career for Robinho with the clubs that he used to perform in.

Atletico Mineiro’s Robinho wants a return to Brazil

At his 32 years of age, Robinho still continues to play and the experienced player has not shown any signs of hanging up his boots even though his age is fairly elevated.

Robinho recently completed a move from China to Brazil as he was transferred from the Asian club Guangzhou Evergrande to Atletico Mineiro on a 2 year long deal.

The Chinese Super League has been attracting the attention of high-profile players as Asian clubs are spending big bucks in securing the services of renowned performers and Robinho is the latest figure to join this list.

Another recent top player that have completed his move to the Asian League was Ezequiel Lavezzi who made a move to Hebei Fortune. Ac.Milan’s Mario Balotelli is a figure who has been consistently linked with a potential move to the Chinese Super League aswell.

Robinho says that he would be open to the possibility of returning to Brazilian football

Former Manchester City and AC Milan winger Robinho says that he would be open to the possibility of returning to Brazilian football once his contract with Guangzhou Evergrande comes to an end.

The 31-year-old has already played in several leagues across the world. However, he has been the happiest when playing in his home country of Brazil. He has frequently tried to stretch his wings as far as possible. This attitude raised a lot of surprises since it led to his move to Guangzhou Evergrande just when it seemed that he was back in Brazil for good.

Neymar says he was absolutely fascinated by Robinho

Robinho has played for top clubs in England, Spain and Italy and is currently in China where he is being a part of Guangzhou Evergrande.

Although, he hasn’t been a World Cup winner so far, but, his CV includes a lot of club as well as international titles including La Liga and Copa America.
