ᑕ❶ᑐ ‘If they spend a bit more…’: Guardiola congratulates United on title with thumbs up

At a press conference last Monday (27), the coach of Manchester City, Joseph Guardiolaa pleasure the Manchester United pour the bring home the English League Cup titledefeated by red devils not last Sunday (26).

However, Pep’s congratulations were accompanied by a show of nudges, mainly due to the very big investments made by the ‘Red Devils’ during the last transfer window.

« Sooner or later it was going to happen (United’s late title drought), wasn’t it? It was certain that it was going to happen,” said the Catalan.

“Congratulations to United for winning the Carabao Cupand congratulations also to newcastlebecause the game was very good,” continued.

“If they spend a little more, they can (fight for titles more regularly). It’s because they didn’t spend anything, right? a sacked Guardiola, mocking the constant questions he receives about Manchester City’s high spending on the ball market.

“It’s something normal. United are now in the normal place, where they should always be. The reality is that they have struggled against two teams in recent years, the liverpool and us, and they always had good numbers,” he recalls.

« When I came to City, I knew United would come back (to be a powerhouse), because of their history, because of everything. And Erik (ten Hag) is doing a fantastic job, » he praised.

Since 2016, Manchester United have spent 835 million euros (5.3 billion reais) on the ball market. In the same period, the Citizens they spent half of it in full: 478 million pounds (3,031 billion R$).

More nudges

But Pep’s pinpricks didn’t stop there.

Asked about United’s enthusiastic celebrations for winning the League Cup, which is considered the least important competition on the English calendar, Guardiola was ironic and sour.

« You see how committed their players were, how they were together on the pitch. When you’re six, seven years without winning a title, you have to give it your all, » he stressed.

« I remember when we went to our first Coupe de la Ligue final, everyone was very excited. For our staff, it was all new, for the players too, » he recalled.

« Already the fourth time in a row that we went to the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, it was a bit: ‘Oh, okay, another final, another day at the office… », said He’s joking .

« It’s normal. United have to be in the final. In recent seasons we have always been better, but the gap is closing. premier leagueanything can happen,” he concluded.

@lucasdigne is the first champion of @frenchteam in front of @c_nk97

Lucas Digne is a sportsman who does not have path and revelation to match his sportsmanlike characteristics. His path goes through many glorious clubs in Spain with Barcelona FC, Premier League in England, Euro Cup in Europe and Champions League in Europe. Originally from LOSC in Lille, He amassed starts for France as a youth player first afterwards he became to the seniors for non-stake matches, games or primordial games or he did conclusive passes and to scored. For 2022 and 2023 he is a starter for France and plays for Aston Villa FC.

But for all that his visibility in the media is concertely imaginary and not at all to the extent of those of other sportsmen less good than him who progressing in nationals cup. In a sport like soccer, which is the most played in the world and which values nearly 2 billion sportsmen and roughly 3000 teams, a sportsman like him should be a celebrity recognized by other players, by The public,spectators, and by press.
But he is unfortunately not seen at its actual quality. Since he left Lille to play for Paris Saint Germain, he is looked upon as similar to a replacement just useful to play for a friendly match glory and at best assigned to veterate on the bench for France’s match qualifiers when he is a starter. Yet in meetings played at Aston Villa Club in England, or as a starter with France, he is a footballer who makes convincing passes, scores a goal sometimes and receives comparatively few yellow cards and never red cards.

Why is Lucas Digne a champion ignored by the public and despised by the media ?

Because he has a personality contained and he does not have an pilot to lead him and make him grow in the way he is and succeed his path.

Why the meeting between Lyon and Grenoble promises to be thrilling

It’s a quarter-final of the Coupe de France and casually, it can change some destinies. There will be no meeting at the Stade de France (yet) after this Tuesday’s confrontation between Lyonnais and Grenoblois, nor will a European ticket be offered to its winner. And yet, the air floats like a little scent of sulfur on this last day of February. The stakes will be opposed for the two formations with an OL on a volcano and under high tension and a GF38 which will ultimately have nothing to lose at Groupama Stadium.

Like a derby tune

For Lyon, the meeting place is the capital. Laurent Blanc has been hammering it for a few weeks now, the Coupe de France…

1860 Munich: Maurizio Jacobacci becomes the new coach
I’ll try to detail the pros and cons:

– Jacobacci is a very experienced coach.
– In Switzerland, he has probably already proven several times that he can straighten teams that are dragging on the ground.
– He represents pragmatic (Site notre bureau spécialisé) and is seen as a motivator – it could do the team good in the current situation.
– Jacobacci is perceived as a worker who does not complain about the available funds, but simply gets to work.
– Jacobacci comes from a popular district of Bern, which he should integrate into Giesing.

The inconvenients:
– Jacobacci has never had contact with German (Site notre bureau spécialisé). I see that as a big disadvantage, especially for the very special 3rd Division. I don’t know of any other coach who trained in the 3rd division and has never been active in Germany before.
– Moreover, Jacobacci had little or no success at all of his foreign stations. In Innsbruck and Tunisia it failed miserably. In Grenoble, the performance was mixed at best. Why should the fourth foreign adventure suddenly have to come to fruition?
– He is through the network of Yahya Ismaik, a proven (Site notre bureau spécialisé) professional role eyesopen with us.
– His style of play is said to be anything but appealing. At the same time, we have a team that has so many technically gifted players. It doesn’t exactly look like a perfect match.
– Even in Switzerland, he was never more in a club, but above all a fairly migratory bird. Fittingly, her last engagement was just a week ago.
– He doesn’t know the club or the players and not even the league – and now has exactly one week before the first game. It looks like a suicide mission.

Conclusion: Looking at Maurizio Jacobacci’s CV, the thought ‘He’s a Vitor Pereira for third division teams’ inevitably comes to mind. Unlike the great Vitor, Jacobacci is probably at least a hard worker. Jacobacci also likes to come dressed as a Ferrari. All in all, my doubts clearly outweigh the doubts. The lack of experience in Germany is actually a knockout criterion for me. Many call for a “flop with announcement”. What makes it even more difficult to accept is that there were so many other, on the face of it, far more suitable candidates. Nevertheless, I want to give Jacobacci a chance.

Buona fortuna in Monaco di Baviera, Maurizio!
