Juventus are the clear favourites to win the Italian Serie A once again largely because of the league lacking in proper competition.
Teams like Napoli and Roma are simply not at the level of Juventus while AC Milan and Inter Milan are far away from making any threat at the top of the table. This element may have just changed in the Italian Serie A after AC Milan’s takeover by Chinese investors. The club are yet to make significant investment in the transfer window, but there has been a lot of positivity surrounding the club. It was a major factor in helping Milan beat Juventus 1-0 at the San Siro.
Midfielder Sami Khedira was part of the team that suffered this shock defeat, but he later explained his deep regret at losing the game. Incredibly, Juventus have suffered only two defeats so far this season and both have come against the two Milan clubs. The first defeat – against Inter – came in the middle of September and since then Juventus seemed to have recovered quite well. Read the rest of this entry »

Former Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes that Manchester United should show more respect to midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Manager José Mourinho has frozen out the midfielder without giving out proper reasons. This has been surprising especially given that Schweinsteiger is a World Cup winner and is regarded as one of the finest midfielders in the world. Even though he is at 32 years of age and struggled with injuries last season, it would not be a reason to leave out a top midfielder from the first team squad. Schweinsteiger has been training alone or with the reserve team since the start of the season
Even though recently the midfielder was included in the Premier League squad, it is largely seen as the result of players like Anthony Martial being included in the under-23 list. Once upon a time, Khedira was linked with a move to Manchester United as they searched hard for a defensive midfielder. However, a major injury just before the start of the World Cup 2014 ruined his chances of a move but then the chance of joining Juventus came up. The German joined the Italian outfit on a free transfer and he has already won the league title in his first season at the club.

Sami Khedira is not the most flashy or standout player in the world of football but nonetheless, his contributions cannot go unnoticed as the German midfielder is an experienced performer who can help out either in the defensive section of any team or the midfield department as well and most of his work usually goes unnoticed as he isn’t at the spotlight as much in comparison to other players.
The German midfielder has almost spent 5 years playing for Real Madrid with over 100 appearances having been made for the Spanish club and huge titles being secured along the way.
Even with all of the major pieces of silverware that Sami Khedira has helped Real Madrid in securing, it seems like the time that the German player spent at the Santiago Bernabeu was not as good as it seemed to be.
Khedira made a total of 11 league appearances for Real Madrid in this season and the German player said due to the things that have been going on recently with the club; it has affected him on a personal level.
