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.

4. Family and Spain

Messi and Romero have both lived in Europe since childhood but they have almost the entire family in Argentina. Messi’s relatives are still in Rosario. Romero came to Spain when he was 3 years old, while the whole family continued to live south of Buenos Aires. 

5. Both are connected to Barcelona

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.

7 MU players will return after injury for the match against Tottenham

MU will meet Tottenham in the Premier League opening match after the season returns with the reception of 7 players fully recovered from injury.

After more than 3 months of suspension, MU will meet Tottenham on June 19. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team last played in a 5- win against LASK Linz in the Europa League, they didn’t have 7 players because of injury.

Now, Solskjaer coach confirms his squad is completely complete with every player who is fit to play against Tottenham. Below is a list of players who have been absent from Austria.

Marcus Rashford

The England striker has not played since the FA Cup third round match against Wolves in January due to a back injury. 
Rashford was suspected of resting the rest of the season, but the surprise holiday gave him time to speed up recovery and will make it to the pitch in the next match.

Paul Pogba

Pogba struggled with an ankle injury throughout the season, making him only eight appearances in all competitions.
The French midfielder has been participating in the first-team training for some time and MU fans are excited about the prospect of him joining Bruno Fernandes.

Diogo Dalot

Dalot has only played 10 matches this season due to a muscle injury. He returned to the game against Liverpool in February but was not included in three Premier League matches before the season was suspended.

Anthony Martial

Martial was forced to sit out in the Europa League after suffering pain in the Manchester derby on March 8. The injury is not serious, so he will be ready to return to Tottenham.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Wan-Bissaka did not accompany the team to Austria due to back pain and will now be fit for the match against Tottenham.

Jesse Lingard

Lingard is another player who missed the match against LASK due to an injury but is looking forward to playing.

Lee Grant

Grant underwent surgery at the beginning of the year. The veteran goalkeeper has practiced in recent weeks but did not expect to play in front of Spurs.

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”.

Football news COVID-19 season 24/4: Barca pursue Juventus midfielder

Updated news, the latest world football event on 24/4 is directly affected by the COVID-19 epidemic.

Barca pursue the Juventus midfielder

Barca wanted Juventus’ Miralem Pjanic while the midfielder was still on contract until 2023. According to RAC-1, the intention was met with a major obstacle because Juventus demanded Arthur as an exchange.

Barca is very difficult to release Arthur because they have rejected Inter’s proposal to bring the Brazilian midfielder as part of the negotiation for Lautaro Martinez.

For his part, Pjanic is said to have a bad relationship with coach Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.

Barca proposed for Polish talent

Polish Super Express newspaper said Barca approached 17-year-old striker Aleksander Buksa of Wisła Krakow.

Buksa has experience in Ekstraklasa, the Polish first division that he debuted at the age of 16 (4 times to replace) and scored 3 goals in 14 matches this season.

The representative of the player said that there are some foreign clubs interested in Polish talent who is 1.88m tall and weighs 73 kg, but Barca is the most clearly planned team.

MU screamed amazing prices for the full back

According to O Jogo, MU shouted a staggering £ 35 million for Diogo Dalot when PSG asked to buy this right-back.

Dalot comes from Porto in 2018 for around £ 18 million. However, he failed to maintain a regular position in the first team especially when coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought Aaron Wan-Bissaka for £ 50 million from Crystal Palace.

Although Dalot has only played 10 times this season, MU still requires a lot of money when PSG asks to buy.

Rookie Chelsea could not play in July

The Dutch championship is expected to be canceled, clearing obstacles for Hakim Ziyech’s move from Ajax to Chelsea. This £ 36.6 million contract will officially be available from July 1.

However, even if the English season lasts into July, the possibility of Ziyech playing for Chelsea immediately is very difficult.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea plans to discuss an appropriate start date as the situation becomes clearer to the Moroccan star and his agent.

Inter sells strikers to fight Pogba

Tuttosport newspaper, Inter Milan also participated in the race with Juventus to win Paul Pogba next summer.

Coach Antonio Conte will raise funds to buy Pogba by selling striker Mauro Icardi. The Argentinian striker was on loan at PSG, scoring 20 goals in 31 appearances.

Icardi’s deal at PSG includes a buy-out option and, if activated by the French club, Inter will receive £ 62 million that will then be used to bid for Pogba.

Sancho prepares to receive Dortmund’s second highest salary

Dortmund confidently persuaded Jadon Sancho to stay by signing a new contract and raising his salary to 10 million euros.

The 20-year-old striker is drawing great interest from Premier League giants like MU and Chelsea after another great season in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund is ready to propose an additional 1 year, until 2023, through which Sancho’s salary increases to 10 million euros per season, up 4 million euros – making him the second-highest-paid player at the club.
