Neymar surpassed Ronaldo in scoring for Brazilian football team

Neymar overcame the scoring record of “Fat Ronaldo” in the Brazilian national shirt to become the second-best striker in history.

Neymar scored 3 goals to help the Brazilian team beat Peru 4-2 in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. These three goals helped Neymar score 62, 63, and 64 for the Selecao.

Thus, Neymar overcomes the scoring achievements of “fat Ronaldo” for the Brazilian team. Since his debut in 2010, Neymar has 103 appearances and has scored 64. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has scored 62 goals in 98 games.

Neymar scored 64 goals for the Brazilian team

Currently, Neymar is only behind Pele in the list of the best strikers in the history of the Brazilian team. Pele’s scoring performance is impressive as he only needs 92 games to score 77 goals, averaging 0.83 goals per game. Meanwhile, Neymar reached 0.61 goals/game.

But what’s important is that Neymar is only 28 years old and has plenty of opportunities to play for the Selecao in the coming years. Therefore, just maintaining the current scoring style, the ability to score 14 more goals to break Pele’s record is a task within reach.

The consolation for Neymar was that he contributed 2 assists for Firmino and Coutinho to score. It was the second time he scored a double assisting in a match after his performance against Bolivia four years ago.

How will Man City guarantee Messi’s benefits after buying the striker?

Despite age and Covid-19 affecting the overall financial picture, Lionel Messi’s income will still increase. This will happen if he moves from Barca to Man City this summer.

Messi is enjoying the best treatment in the world in Barca. So, Man City will have to ensure at least the same treatment if he invites him to the Etihad Stadium

The strangest thing regarding the best player in football history is that he can still leave freely. Messi has scored more than 630 goals, won 33 trophies at club level and six Golden Balls. He did not go to Barca’s Covid-19 test, an obligation to fulfill every player who wants to play in La Liga next season.

The Argentine striker believes that a term in his contract with Barca allows him to leave the club automatically without any transfer fees. But even when leaving Barca freely, the financial burden on Man City or any team that wants to own Messi will not decrease. Messi is receiving a weekly salary after tax of about $ 667,000 in Barca. However, it is not sure to maintain that number in the new team.

Because of Covid-19’s influence, Sheffield Hallam University’s Dr. Robert Wilson believes that no team is willing to pay that salary to a player.

Man City may have to spend a huge amount of money on Messi

According to Wilson, if Man City spends a huge amount of money on Messi without careful calculation, the labor unions will fight them. That is, Messi’s salary must definitely decrease significantly compared to his time at Barca.

But don’t misunderstand Wilson’s point. Man City cannot pay high salaries, but Messi’s total annual income will certainly be better. This depends on the reality of the automatic release clause that Messi signed with Barca.

Camp Nou team believes that the term has expired on June 10. But Messi’s lawyers cite the plague to assert that the 2019-2020 season actually ends on August 14 and the time when Messi faxes the request to leave is appropriate to trigger this provision.

Messi is receiving about $ 35 million after salary tax each year from Barca. However, this amount does not include image copyright. A star like him will be divided commissions for commercial activities off the pitch to benefit the host team.

If there is more Messi, Man City will be imposed with the target of winning more titles. And this is also an opportunity for Messi to improve his income if he helps the club to meet the goals. If there is Messi, Man City will be imposed with the target of winning more titles.

Ronaldo has the first training day with new coach Pirlo

Ronaldo and his teammates began to practice again to prepare for the new season from August 24 at the Juventus training center.

New coach Andrea Pirlo signed a fan sign on the first day of leading Juventus. The Serie A champion appointed a 41-year-old military leader on August 8, shortly after sacking former coach Maurizio Sarri for his Champions League defeat.

This year, since the players took a break from March to June during the anti-pandemic, the break between the two seasons was just over a month. After playing last season’s match on August 7, Juventus will start Serie A 2020-2021 on September 19.

Pirlo launched with the coaching staff. The tallest of them is Igor Tudor, another former Juventus player. Andrea Pirlo is a great football coach. However, Juergen Klopp is recommended the best football coach in the world nowadays.

Pirlo spoke to the players before the training session. Many Juventus players are now teammates, even opponents of Pirlo during the game. In the 2014-2015 season, he and Juventus eliminated Ronaldo’s Real in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Pirlo will have to find a solution to exploit Ronaldo

This is a task that the two predecessors Allegri and Sarri are not as successful as Zidane did at Real. After two unsatisfactory seasons, CR7 is likely to stay, continue to conquer the Champions League with Juventus.

Midfielder Leonardo Bonucci regained his freshness two weeks after the same team was eliminated from the Champions League. He put his faith in Pirlo, his former teammate who is known for his delicate play.

Under Pirlo’s leadership, Juventus can focus more on young players. During the summer transfer window, the Serie A champions recruited 23-year-old midfielder Arthur and 20-year-old midfielder Kulusevski.

Some players who are older, or do not play a major role, may be left. Adrien Rabiot is an example. The sale of players also aims to help Juventus reduce the salary burden during the Covid-19 era.

With seasoned defenders such as 36-year-old captain Giorgio Chiellini (right) and 33-year-old Bonucci, experience is a huge plus. Juventus is likely to still have to rely on them, alongside De Ligt.

Leading Juventus is an honor, but also a serious challenge for Pirlo. The young leader must find a way to help Juventus play more effectively, especially in the Champions League, while the finances and the depth of the force are not small problems.

Is Juergen Klopp worth being the best football coach in the world? (Part 3)

Wayne Rooney acknowledges the talent of Klopp

Wayne Rooney, the former Manchester United striker, acknowledges the talent of the German strategist.

After 5 years, with the presence of Klopp, Liverpool improved in all aspects. In the transfer market, they are no longer idiots with deals like Lazar Markovic, Christian Benteke, but instead Alisson Becker – Virgil Van Dijk – Fabinho, Liverpool’s backbone or Salah – Sadio Mane, The duo contributed the most goals this season.

The German strategist is concerned about the smallest elements of training to help Liverpool have the best performances when playing. Behind what fans have witnessed is the relentless effort of the team of experts including Head of Nutrition Mona Nemmer, coach Thomas Gronnemark, sports psychologist Lee Richardson, manager of the health department, and restoring Phil Jacobsen.

At Melwood, the door of Coach Klopp’s room is always open to welcome all players and members of the coaching staff. He is willing to listen.

These factors help Liverpool to show a completely different face. In the Premier League 2019/20, they are masters in counterattack situations with 9 goals, topping the tournament. This figure in the 2015/16 season is only 1 (ranked 12th).

Coach Klopp has built a solid defense

In his first season in charge, Liverpool conceded 50 goals. Up to this time of the season 2019/20, Liverpool received the least goals (21 goals).

In England, Klopp’s greatest counterpart is Pep Guardiola’s Man City. In 10 direct confrontations, Liverpool won 5 matches, drew 2, and lost 3.

Coach Klopp is also the most annoying opponent for the Spanish strategist. On average, Pep earns 1.28 points per match against Klopp. Meanwhile, the number when playing against Jose Mourinho or Arsene Wenger is 1.77 and 1.93 respectively.

In the 2018/19 season, Klopp was named the best coach of the year by FIFA with a record of 14 years of winning the Champions League. By this season, he continues to bring glory to the Port City team. Liverpool won the Premier League after 30 years of waiting. They are even the earliest to ascend the throne when the season has 7 more rounds to end. With all that done, Klopp deserves to be called the best coach in the world now.
