Is Ronaldo or Messi’s yacht more expensive?

Ronaldo and Messi both choose to vacation on luxury yachts, but which star’s yacht is more expensive?

In today’s hot summer days, both Ronaldo and Messi choose to resort on the sea. Messi recently relaxed with his family in Ibiza (Mallorca), while Ronaldo and his family were resting in the Mediterranean sea.

For the most comfortable and private relaxing moments, both stars choose luxury yachts.

According to Italian media, it is not clear whether Ronaldo rented or bought this 5 million-euro yacht. Azimut Grande 27 is designed as a miniature 5-star hotel on the sea, with a length of 27m and can run at a maximum speed of 28 knots, about 52 km / h.

Azimut Grande 27 is 3 stories high with 4 double cabins, 2 cabins for crew members and 7 bathrooms in different positions. In addition, all windows on the yacht are fitted with tempered glass so that visitors can watch the sea in any position.

This yacht is a bit shorter than Ronaldo’s yacht, only about 26m, but can still reach a maximum speed of 28 knots/hour.

More importantly, the Maiora 24S Lex is considered to have more utilities than the Azimut Grande 27. Messi’s yacht has 4 cabins that can accommodate 10 guests, including 1 Presidential cabin, 1 VIP cabin and 2 regular cabins. In particular, the Presidential cabin and VIP cabin have a double bed, private bathroom, TV and desk with high speed wifi connection.

In addition, Maiora 24S Lex also has a solarium, a cabin for 4 crew members, a wine cellar, a dining room and a storage of lots of underwater toys.

After spending a break, both Ronaldo and Messi will return to training to prepare for the return leg in the 1/8 Champions League round that takes place next week.

De Gea is constantly making mistakes at MU because of Cristiano Ronaldo?

Cristiano Ronaldo is being blamed for the hard-to-forgive mistakes of goalkeeper David de Gea in the MU shirt last time.

David De Gea continued to disappoint when making a mistake, causing MU to receive 2 goals and lose to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final. But this is not the first time the Spaniard has been criticized for this.

Since last season, De Gea has at least 6 mistakes that made MU lose points against Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton, Watford, Barca or Arsenal.

Many factors have been put in place to explain De Gea’s miserable performance, including a very strange cause related to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Some comments that Ronaldo must bear a responsibility for De Gea’s mistakes in the past though not in the same team and also played in two different tournaments. The last time the two faced each other took place since November 2018 when MU encountered Juventus in the Champions League group stage of 2018/19.

But Ronaldo destroyed De Gea’s confidence five months earlier when the two were featured in the Portuguese match against Spain in the 2018 World Cup group stage. Escape at the end of the battle. However, the second goal was a great help of De Gea.

In this situation, Ronaldo shot slightly and hit De Gea’s position, but because of a moment of distraction, he let the ball hit the ball and flew into the net.

It is worth mentioning that the Spaniard made a mistake after spending an outstanding season and won the Golden Glove Award in the English Premier League 2017/18 with a record of 18 clean sheets.

However, he made a mistake at the opening game of the 2018 World Cup. Since then, De Gea has frequently made very silly errors and Ronaldo is joked by many Man Utd fans that he made the Spanish goalkeeper lose confidence.

“Coach Frank Lampard has done great things with his young players. If he had another great player, Chelsea would be very formidable.

“MU is the same. If you can buy 2-3 more players like Koulibaly, Jadon Sancho and one more then MU is also a strong candidate to compete for the championship next season. Coach Pep Guardiola can help Man City return to the competition. race to the title with 3-4 new contracts.

“But I will eliminate Arsenal and Tottenham from the championship race. They are lagging too far behind their competitors”.

7 interesting coincidences between Messi and prodigy striker 15 years old

There are many interesting similarities between Lionel Messi and 15-year-old talent Luka Romero, the boy who just debuted in La Liga and was dubbed Messi Mexico.

Luka Romero just went down in history when he became the youngest player to debut in La Liga at the age of 15 and 219 days. This boy was born in Mexico but served the Argentina team like his elder brother Messi.

1. Two people wear the number 18 shirt of the team

Luka Romero made his Argentina debut in the South American U15 tournament in 2019 with 2 goals. In the final, Argentina drew 1-1 with Brazil, before losing 3-5 on penalties.

Meanwhile, on August 17, 2005, Messi wore the number 18 shirt in a friendly against Hungary.

2. Both want shirt number 10

Messi wore the Argentina number 10 shirt for the first time on March 28, 2009 in a 409 win against Venezuela in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. 

Romero, from an early age, wore that iconic shirt of Argentine football. However, in the youth team, he could not use the number 10 because it belonged to Ignacio Tapia from Belgrano.

3. Both are left-footed

The gift of talent that both of them were given was their left leg, although Messi and Romero also played right foot not bad. 

In both the team and the club, Messi stands out in either a connected role on the front line or on the wide right.

Romero also adapts well to different positions, especially the number 10 role. “He is a technical player, with the ability to handle the ball, pass and dribble well. He read the game very well, ”commented Argentina U15 coach Alejandro Sagasse.

Messi coming to Catalan is a famous story, with a happy ending, including 36 titles and love continues to grow day by day. 

Romero spent a week of testing at the La Masia training furnace and then left. “I was far away from home, I don’t remember much because when I was very young,” the striker, who has been with Mallorca since the age of 5, recalls.

6. They were known earlier in Spain than in Argentina

Perhaps due to geographical reasons, the first steps of Messi and Romero have been closely followed by the Spanish media. 

7. They choose to play for the Argentina team

Messi was tempted from Spain but in June 2004, he turned down an offer to play for the national team. 

Romero has Mexican nationality (was born in Durango) and Spain but has fulfilled his dream of playing for Argentina in the U15 South American squad in 2019.

Haaland has developed incredible muscle in the past 1 year

Erling Haaland has had incredible muscle development for over a year to become one of the best strikers in the world.

Erling Haaland was originally a offspring with both parents pursuing a sports career. His father, Alf-Inge Haaland, was a professional footballer in the Premier League, while his mother was a long-distance champion in Norway, Gry Marit.

Right from the age of 6, Haaland showed his talent in playing sports when he broke the long jump record at his age when he achieved 1.63m. This is the beginning of an incredible physical transformation of Haaland.

From a skinny boy, Haaland has transformed into a true giant on the pitch with a height of 1m94 and weight 87 kg. But interestingly, Haaland can still run at a maximum speed of 36 km / h, equal to the speed of a track athlete at a distance of 60m.

Borre Steenslid, a physical coach who worked with Haaland in Molde when the 17-year-old said, “Erling’s body meets training requirements very well because his genome is very special. Do you believe it? He gained 12 kg of muscle in just 15 months. It’s crazy and unbelievable right?”.

In addition to following a strict diet, Haaland also dived into exercise like crazy to strengthen muscles. Coach Steenslid shared with Molde players an anecdote like this.

“Erling loves attending buffets and his plate can be called a mountain of food… I’m the one who designed the exercises for Erling and one of them was punching sandbags. But I didn’t expect Erling to break a sandbag into two pieces one day”.

At RB Salzburg, coach Jesse Marsch even had to ask Haaland to go home early to avoid this player from overtraining injury. After stressful and exhausting training hours, Haaland will meditate to relieve stress and help to relax.

The Norwegian striker also used a special glass to filter the blue light from the phone screen and TV, stimulate the body to produce melatonin and help Haaland sleep better. A good night’s sleep has a great effect on the muscle recovery process of young Norwegian strikers.

Why was Timo Werner the most hated player in Germany?

Chelsea’s new signing, Timo Werner was once Germany’s most hated player but is now a respected striker across Europe.

In the 7 years since his professional debut, Timo Werner has scored 88 goals in the Bundesliga, capturing a solid place in the German team and moving from the hated player to one of the most admired strikers in the Europe.

Growing up in Stuttgart’s youth academy, Werner was endowed with devastating acceleration and finishing, which helped him score 3 goals in his first 10 matches as the club’s youngest player.

Seeing what Werner showed on the pitch later, the legendary Mario Gomez of Stuttgart had to say: “Timo is unbelievably fast, has a sharpness in front of goal and a superb finishing ability. He can score with his right foot, his left leg and his head. “

Werner was Joshua Kimmich’s teammate at the Stuttgart academy, growing up together at the age of 13, taking the same jump to Leipzig.

However, while the current Bayern star arrived in Leipzig calmly, Werner’s departure almost ruined his career. Stuttgart fans will never forgive this, especially when he joins the most hated club in Germany.

The hatred then spread like fire throughout German football. After Werner’s blatant brawl against Schalke in late 2016, the songs mocking the striker flooded the stadiums for months in a row.

When he was only 21, Werner needed a sports psychologist to overcome this problem. Werner told Focus magazine that he told him to keep silence all those who didn’t like him by doing one thing only: to score goal.

And he did it excellently. Werner led Leipzig repeatedly to qualify for the Champions League and became a praised player, rather than being insulted.

Since joining Leipzig in 2016, Werner has scored 92 goals in all competitions. This season, he is pursuing Robert Lewandowski in the race to win the Bundesliga Golden Boot.

Marcus Rashford

The reason Ronaldo never joined the defense at MU

Ryan Giggs has revealed the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo never joined the defense when he was playing for MU when coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

Former player Ryan Giggs revealed that Ronaldo never had the thought of running to support the defense when he was playing for MU. CR7’s play forced Sir Alex Ferguson to change tactics when meeting big teams.

However, Ryan Giggs did not criticize Ronaldo, but explained why this style of kick made him one of the best players in the world.

Usually, the midfielders are asked to retreat to support when the home team loses the ball in order to bring balance. However, some players only focus on the task of attacking when they have special talent to help the home team to score and Ronaldo is one of such cases.

This explains why Sir Alex Ferguson only wanted Ronaldo to play on the opposing pitch instead of running home to support the home team. The speed, technique and ability to score goals of CR7 are very important for counterattack situations and Sir Alex does not want to miss this weapon.

Therefore, when meeting the big teams, Sir Alex Ferguson arranged another player in the midfield to retreat to support the defense for Ronaldo.

Share on beIN Sports, Ryan Giggs said: “The players who escape from the task of defense are the ones who decide to win. They bring more victory so you need to allow them to escape the defensive mission.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is such a player. That’s why Sir Alex added a player in the midfield when he met rivals such as Arsenal. When he met Chelsea, Darren Fletcher was tasked with Ashley Cole because Sir Alex knew Ronaldo did not return to support the defense.

“If we don’t include players like Hazard, Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar, they will be the ones who decide to win. If you are a top player, you can escape the defense, but you have to be special and you have to win more than lose”.
