Rivaldo: “Messi and Ronaldo help each other regain the top when confronted”

The former Barca striker believes that matches between Barca and Juventus in the Champions League group stage this season will be attractive to the world by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It’s great to seeLionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo face off again. They will light up the whole tournament, because the whole world wants to see the top two superstars compete,” Rivaldo told Betfair. “Some people think that Messi has deteriorated after Ronaldo left Spain. So this is a great opportunity for both of them to regain their peak form when competing on the field.”

Messi and Ronaldo have not faced off on the field since the summer of 2018, when the Portuguese superstar joined Juventus. The past two years, the performance of the duo that dominated world football a decade ago has gone down, especially in the Champions League. Messi once reached the semi-finals and once in the quarter-finals, and Ronaldo has never reached the fourth round of the team.

All are on the other side of the slope of their career, the chances for Messi and Ronaldo to reign at the top of world football are not many. That was one more reason why the upcoming confrontation, Rivaldo believed. “With the other two opponents, Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros, Barca and Juventus are almost certain to continue,” analyzed the 1999 Golden Ball. “Both Messi and Ronaldo are mentally comfortable to enter the fairest competition. The game itself will motivate the insiders. It’s great to see such a positive relationship possible. show up on the field, in as little as 180 minutes.

Barca, the team that brought Rivaldo to world star, is currently in the process of rebuilding under Ronald Koeman. However, the owner of Camp Nou does not shop much in the summer of 2020, but mainly pushes away the players. They are pursuing Memphis Depay, but have not received positive signals from Lyon. “Barca still finds an attacker to replace Luis Suarez. They will be happy if there is Depay,” Rivaldo said. “However, it is very difficult to find a player with the quality and fighting spirit like Suarez. I am afraid that there is a long way to go before Barca will have a worthy replacement, because all strikers brought back will be lost Compared to Suarez. This puts a lot of pressure on them”.

Ronaldo once had a secret love when he learned Georgina Rodriguez

The Portuguese media revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo still has another secret love while getting to know his current girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez.

Ronaldo started dating his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez in 2016. At that time, she was just a salesman at the Gucci fashion store chain. On the contrary, Ronaldo is very famous and rich, so he is always surrounded by beauties whose reputation is not inferior to him.

The Portuguese striker used to have many secret relationships and even hired someone to give birth to him. One such relationship was revealed by the Portuguese media.

Sharing on the program Viva la Vida, journalist Adriano Silva revealed many interesting details when Ronaldo first met and learned Georgina Rodriguez. In it, Mr. Silva said, Ronaldo had a secret relationship with the American MC, Alyson Eckmann.

At the time, Alyson was MCing for Telecinco’s “Hable con ellas” program. She met Ronaldo at several events held in Madrid after the Portuguese player bid farewell to his girlfriend Irina Shayk. But their relationship did not last long because Alyson did not want to ask for a player as famous as Ronaldo.

In fact, after breaking up, model Irina Shayk accused Ronaldo of cheating her to have an affair with dozens of women around the world. Last year, Ronaldo was also accused of raping model Kathryn Mayorga in 2009, but the court acquitted.

After being rejected by Alyson, Ronaldo officially dated Georgina and lives happily together today. Journalist Adriano Silva revealed that Ronaldo’s mother revealed to a newspaper he collaborated about CR7 preparing to marry Georgina but did not know the exact time.

As for Alyson Eckmann, the beauty does not need to rely on Ronaldo to be famous because she herself is very beautiful and talented.

Alyson’s name is most widely known when she won the reality show Big Brother VIP season 5 in 2017. Right now, Alyson is happy with her boyfriend Joey Love.

Bartomeu: I can’t let Messi go

President Josep Maria Bartomeu asserted that in the interests of Barca, he must be determined to keep Lionel Messi in the summer of 2020.

“I will not cause a conflict with him. Messi is the captain of the team, the leader of the team. I cannot let him leave the club. Messi is the best player of all time and The team needs him. Owning Messi is a guarantee of success”, Bartomeu told TV3.

Near the end of August, Messi asked to leave a year ahead of his contract. The decision was made by the 33-year-old star not long after Barca lost a big 2-8 defeat to Bayern in the Champions League. Barca, headed by President Bartomeu, refused to allow the Argentine striker to leave for free. Finally, Messi decided to stay. However, he still expressed his anger and criticized Bartomeu for not keeping his word, once-promising to let him go at the end of the season.

“We saw him talking on the pitch and now is the time to move on after the leaving controversy,” Bartomeu said. “We should congratulate ourselves for having kept Messi successful and on his manners for the past few days. The best player in the world should stay in our house.”

Messi is committed to his stay and will continue to dedicate himself to Barca, and he is showing it on the pitch. In the Girona match on September 17, Messi scored two goals, helping Barca to win three friendly matches before the new season began.

Meanwhile, Bartomeu is facing a new war when more than 20,000 club members sign a request for a no-confidence vote with him. Barca’s leadership will decide on this in the next two weeks. Bartomeu said he is still focused on his work, not mindful of the demands of the protesting group. “The leadership and I will continue to work to make sure we have the most competitive team. We’ll say this again after the signatures are confirmed. At this point, no one wants to give up. The club will move on and we have a lot to rearrange,” Bartomeu said.

Messi was shocked by his teammates in Barca

The Spanish press evoked a very strange incident going on in Barca, whose main content was about Lionel Messi.

In an article published early today (September 1, local time), journalist Juan Jimenez of AS (Spain) gave a series of doubts and judgments about the situation behind the scenes.

According to Jimenez, except for Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal, who have a close relationship with Messi and have just been determined by Coach Ronald Koeman for the future, there are not any players in the current Barca team make a personal opinion or take a move related to Messi’s situation.

Earlier, Messi and Suarez were seen driving out of the hotel after dinner in Barcelona on August 26, the day after Messi faxed a request to terminate his contract with Barca. Vidal recently posted a forum to claim Messi is an alien in Barca but still needs help, after judging that Barca currently has only 13 professional players.

The strangest case that Jimenez named in this incident was Gerard Pique, who came from the same Barca training camp as Messi and had an almost one-family relationship with the Argentine superstar.

However, in recent days, Pique has not made any move, both on social networks and in real life. Pique’s latest statement came after a 2-8 defeat to Bayern.

The darling of the other La Masia oven like Sergio Busquets or Sergi Roberto also silenced a little.

According to Jimenez, Busquets and Messi’s relationship was a bit chipped when the Spanish midfielder said Messi had influenced Ernesto Valverde to remove his name from the main team, and then not be used at La Liga 2019/20 opening match when Barca lost 0-1 to Bilbao at San Mames.

Some other quite influential figures in the Barca dressing room like goalkeeper Ter Stegen, or defender Alba do not have any movement about the incident, let alone rookie Griezmann.

The last message sent out by the Barca dressing room related to Messi is the reprint of Messi’s statement about the team being reduced by 70% in March 2020.

Jimenez said there were two reasons why this strange atmosphere happened in Barca.

The first may be the caution of the players, in order to avoid statements that are not favorable for the team as well as for the most powerful player in the team. The second is that Messi no longer receives support from his teammates. This is probably the most shocking thing.

The journalist of the AS newspaper also pointed out a more remarkable detail, when the person considered Messi’s spokesman, Pepe Costa, suddenly disappeared on social networks or in statements supporting M10 as before. This character acts as Messi’s spokesperson and translator before the outside world, not only in club problems but in any field related to the life of number 10 Barca.

It should be known that Pepe Costa is one of the few enduring professionals, despite the changes in leadership, from Joan Laporta to Sandro Rosell and Josep Bartomeu.

From a loyal guard of Sandro Rosell, Pepe Costa gradually became one of the few people to win Messi’s trust. Later, even Messi severed close ties with fitness expert Juanjo Brau to get closer to Pepe Costa.

What is the most possible stop for Messi if he leaves Barca?

Lionel Messi has sent a request to leave Barca and the Argentine striker must have made a decision about his new team in the future.

Messi has sent a transfer request to Barca, so it is only a matter of time before the player leaves. But which team will the Argentine striker switch to after leaving Barca? 

At 33, Messi is still one of the best in the world. Barca may be empty this season, but Messi’s performance is still really impressive. He has 31 goals and 24 assists in 44 games. 

Thus, Messi is still directly involved in 1.25 goals / game in the season where Barca played badly and he himself had to leave the early part of the season due to injury.

Therefore, after Messi sent a transfer request to Barca, many big clubs in Europe offered to hire the Argentinian striker. 

Tax incentives in Italy can help Serie A teams gain an advantage in the race to win Messi. Inter Milan has long shown interest in Messi and senior club officials repeatedly affirming its ambition to recruit the Argentine striker. 

But if you want to see his best friend Neymar again, Messi needs to go to PSG. This team has just reached the Champions League final with a star-studded lineup and the bosses are always ready to meet transfer requirements to realize the dream of a European championship.

From the Premier League, the two clubs Man City and MU both wanted to have Messi. In it, Man City had wished for Messi for a long time. The opportunity to work with old teacher Pep Guardiola and close friend Sergio Aguero can make Messi choose this stop.

In addition, the big money clubs in China or the US cannot ignore Messi. But there is a high chance that Messi will refuse because he needs to play in a peak environment in hopes of attending the 2022 World Cup.

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.

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.
