Just like the country itself, Greece has been in turmoil when it comes to the national team. After struggling to even qualify for the Euro 2016, the team has been searching for a new manager to lead.
Greece has been in dilemma for the last 18 months after Fernando Santos stepped down from his post following a successful spell. Former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri was brought to replace him, but he lasted only a few matches.
Stoke City have an opportunity to inflict more misery on Chelsea when they take on the blues at the Britannia stadium on Saturday. It was only recently that the team knocked out the League Cup champions from the competition at the third round on penalties.
The match had finished as a 1-1 draw, but Chelsea had the better of opportunities through the 120 minutes. If there was a repeat of the same, Jose Mourinho will have faith that his team will come out victorious. The Chelsea manager will not be in the dugout to witness the action since he will serve his one-match stadium ban.
Bookmakers have suspended the odds of Martin O’Neill becoming the next Leicester City manager after it is understood that the Premier League club have been given permission to talk with the former Aston Villa boss.
O’Neill is in charge of the Republic of Ireland national team. After a long time, Ireland are expected to qualify for Euro 2016 even at least in the play-off places. This would provide a lot of work for O’Neill in the coming 12 months. There are suggestions that he would retain his job as the England manager while also doing his duties as the Leicester boss.
Bookmakers are expecting plenty of goals when Manchester United take on Aston Villa at Old Trafford this weekend.
United on the back of a stunning run of form that has seen them storm into the top four of the Premier League. If they continue his winning form, they could extended the lead over Liverpool which currently stands at five. This would make them certainties to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League next season. It was the primary objective for the club when they set out at the start of the campaign under Louis Van Gaal.
It’s been over a year since David Beckham retired from playing professional competitive football and the English midfielder stated that one of the main reasons on why his time on the pitch was over is because he wanted to start spending more time with his family.
During his playing time, at one point in time Beckham was the best paid footballer as the Englishman had an attractive set of skills that drew the attention of many top clubs around the world and they were willing to pay the English midfielder a hefty fee in order to secure his services.
Manchester United may have endured a scare against Preston North End on Monday night but they eventually came through the FA Cup fifth round tie in comfortable fashion.
Having fallen behind to a Scott Laird goal early in the second half, Louis van Gaal's men eventually came back to record a 3-1 victory. The win was capped with a penalty which was won and converted by Wayne Rooney.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville says that Liverpool could have brought in a player like Carlos Tevez in the summer rather than signing names like Mario Balotelli.
Liverpool have been struggling for form and consistency since the start of the campaign. This is in sharp contrast to the brilliant campaign, even though it ended up trophyless once again, last time around. One of the hallmarks of last season was Liverpool’s ability to come out flying out of the blocks. They have been unable to do so due to several reasons, but fingers of blame have been largely pointed at Balotelli.
