Real Madrid star, James Rodriguez invited to join Barcelona



James Rodriquez has been invited to join Barcelona by defender Gerard Pique.
Rodriguez was in sensational form for Colombia as they beat Poland in their Group H game in the World Cup last week.

It was a reminder of the form he showed four years ago in Brazil to earn his big money move from Monaco to Real Madrid.

He started well in Spain but fell down the pecking order under Zinedine Zidane and was shipped out to Bayern Munich on loan last season.

Rodriguez is due to remain at Bayern for next season as well but his future may take a turn following Zidane’s resignation.

And Barcelona defender has offered him the chance to join him at Madrid’s big rivals.
According to Barcelona fan website the pair were together for an interview with the The Players’ Tribune.

And Pique said to Rodriguez: “You are invited to Barcelona whenever you want.”

Pique then added he would be welcome at the Nou Camp and insisted he played in the style they want at Barcelona.

“And I don’t know, Barça some day,’ Pique said.

“I have always said you were Barça material. Your form of playing, your way of understanding football.

“But in the end, in your career, no one knows where you’ll end up. But you’d be welcome.”
Rodriguez will be in action against Senegal today as Colombia look to book a spot in the last 16.

They were shocked by Japan in the opening game but beat Poland to give themselves a chance.

Goals from Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado sealed the big win.

Colombia are currently third in Group H but a victory today would take them above Senegal and through to the last 16 – potential as group winners if Japan are unable to beat Poland.

Winners of group H will face the winners of England’s group which will be decided this evening when Gareth Southgate’s side face Belgium.


Mourinho warns Klopp ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Man United




Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has issued out warning to Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp ahead of both teams’ clash in the Premier League fixture on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Mourinho has warned Klopp that real success can only be achieved when a club win trophies not matches.

The Portuguese gaffer has won both the Carabao Cup and Europa League trophy with United since taking over in 2016.

“I think trophies matter,” Mourinho was quoted by EPSN as saying ahead of Liverpool’s clash.

“It matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.

“I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire.

“To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective.”

Klopp has not won any trophy with Liverpool since taking over in 2015 from Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

The 51-year-old has lost the Caraboa Cup and the Europa League finals as well as the Champions League.

Klopp’s men are currently on top of the English topflight league table with 42 points from 16 games, while Mourinho’s side are sixth place with 26 points from the same number of games.

Why Liverpool is better than Manchester United- Mourinho




Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted the huge gap between his team and Liverpool, is due to many factors.

Mourinho takes United to Anfield on Sunday, with his side sitting some 16 points behind the Premier League leaders.

They’ve lost four matches in the league this season, while Liverpool have remained undefeated.

“It’s not just about the money they spend in the summer, is about many things.

“It’s not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that, is not just about spending the money.

“It’s like a house, it’s not just about buying the furniture, you have to do work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you’re ready to live in an amazing house,” Mourinho told UK Mirror.

Mourinho then delivered the killer line when he was asked how far away his team are from what he wants to be seeing, placed in the context of Jurgen Klopp continually getting the best out of his Liverpool players.

“Far,” he said, simply.

And then what asked why, he replied: “The reasons I was saying. It’s not just about spending.”

Owen compares Nigerian-born forward, Bukayo Saka to Ronaldo




Following the Gunners’ 1-0 victory over Qarabag in the Europa League encounter played on Thursday night, Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has compared Nigerian-born and Arsenal forward, Bukayo Saka to Juventus ace, Cristiano Ronaldo, reports.

Saka made his first start for Unai Emery’s side against Qarabag on the left wing and showed plenty of confidence, as he tested goalkeeper, Vagner, with an early strike from the edge of the box and tried to take on defenders.

The 17-year-old also missed a good chance to score his first Arsenal goal in the second half against the visitors.

Owen has now suggested that Saka already has similarities with Ronaldo.

“He [Saka] looked really nervous at the start of the game, myself and Martin [Keown] were both talking about it,” Owen was quoted by Metro UK as saying.

“But he certainly grew into the game. Just him having the courage to run at players was really refreshing to see.

“Some of the skill… I watched Ronaldo doing this the other day for Juventus.”

“He’s just different class and by the end of the game, his confidence was oozing.”

Saka will hope to feature for Arsenal when they tackle Southampton this weekend in the Premier League.
