Neymar, 4 others sent off as PSG lose in French Le Classique

Brazil Superstar Neymar was among 5 players, who were sent off in Paris Saint-Germain’s home loss to Olympique de Marseille in a feisty local derby at the Le Parc des Princes on Sunday night.

 

Florian Thauvin scored the only goal in the match, after placing the ball on just beside the goalkeeper’s near post, following a long set-piece from Dimitri Payet on the half-hour mark.

 

The drama started in the 6th minute of added time following a needless foul on Daniel Paredes by Alvaro Gonzalez, and the brawl saw 5 players sent off. Paredes, Layvin Kurzawa, Jordan Amavi, Dario Benedetto, and Neymar, who narrowly escaped a red, but the VAR caught the Brazilian.

 

The 28-year-old Brazilian claimed Alvaro racially abused him, calling him a monkey and more. He was furious the VAR did not get that, but caught him punching Alvaro.

 

Do you think Neymar will get more than one match ban?

MY11 SAY 1-2

The rivalry in the Spanish La Liga kicks off from week one as Valencia will be welcomingwelcome Levante to the Mestalla Stadium in a local derby.

 

In the last 24 meetings between these two teams, Valencia have won 12, while Levante have won just 5, with the other 7 ending in a draw. Los Che are unbeaten in their last 6 matches against the visitors.

Levanter, on the other hand, signed the likes of Jorge de Frutos, Dani Gomez, Mickael Malsa, and Son, with several players returning to the club after ending their loan spells with various Spanish clubs.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has hit another milestone after scoring the 2 goals for Portugal in their 2-0 win over Sweden in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday night.

Man United and Man CIty Stars, Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood

Man City and Man United stars axed from national team

The England national team has taken a huge step by sending home Phil Foden of Manchester City and Mason Greenwood of Manchester United after the two youngsters broke coronavirus protocol.

 

The two young players made their debuts for the Three Lions in their 1-0 win against Iceland in the UEFA Nations League opener, but England manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed that the pair will not play any part of the game against Denmark.

 

Foden, who is 20 years old, and Greenwood, who is 18 years old, both sneaked girls into their hotel room. The girls in question are said to have posted images on Snapchat which showed the City midfielder and United forward in the room they shared on international duty.

 

The management of the England national team has been left with little choice but to punish both players for inviting outsiders into carefully constructed ‘bubbles’, breaking the coronavirus protocols, and they have now been axed from the team and sent home.

 

Do you think this will impact England's game against Denmark?

Lionel Messi and former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique

Enrique to Messi – No player is bigger than the club.

Former Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, who led the Catalan giants to a treble win in 2015, has hit out at the club captain Lionel Messi, saying no player is bigger than the club.

 

The Messi saga has been on since the heavy loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League, with the Argentine saying he wants to leave the club, but Enrique, who is the coach of Spain says clubs are above players.

 

In an interview before Spain’s game against Ukraine, Enrique said: “I think clubs are above every player. Barcelona was founded in 1899 and is one of the best in the world, it has won titles forever. Clearly, there has been a wonderful relationship. Leo has made Barca grow exponentially but I would have liked it a lot more if an agreement had been reached.”

 

According to reports from Goal.com, Lionel Messi has decided to stay one more year with Barcelona and will leave as a free agent at the end of the 2020/2021 season.

 

Do you think Messi should leave Barcelona or stay?

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi

T.B Joshua advises Messi on Barcelona decision

Lionel Messi’s saga with Barcelona has been a major talking point in the football world, and popular Naija pastor and founder of The Synagogue Church, T.B Joshua has advised the Argentine on what to do.

 

Following a meeting between Lionel Messi and Barcelona’s new coach Ronald Koeman, the captain submitted a transfer request asking the club to allow him to activate a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave for free this summer, with his deal currently set to expire at the end of next season.

 

T.B. Joshua posted on his Instagram page @tbjoshua and said: “It is not good advice for Messi to leave Barcelona bitter and offended. It is impossible to establish a healthy relationship with a person who left a previous relationship bitter and offended. This is my candid advice to Lionel Messi. History is our boss.”

 

There are reports that the Barcelona captain has agreed to personal terms worth £623 million (#319.3 billion) with Manchester City, but it is yet to be decided whether the Catalan giants will let their talisman leave the club.

 

Do you think Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona for Man City?
