The absence of big-name players like Daniele De Rossi is proving hard for manager Rudi Garcia to deal with it at Roma.
The club failed to make any progress in the league table after only manage a 1-1 draw with AC Milan at home. This poor result means that the club has just one win in the last five matches. This could be Garcia’s final match in charge of Roma, as it is believed that the board will have a meeting on the future of their manager on Monday.
More than the disappointment of dropping points against a top team like Milan, Roma supporters have been left heavy after witnessing the team being involved in a 3-3 draw against Chievo. The game could have been a comfortable three points for the away team after they were leading twice in the game. However, on both occasions, they allowed the home team – Chievo – to equalise. Umar and Florenzi had given a two-goal advantage when the first half break was near. However, Chievo managed to get one back through Paloschi. The game was level in the 58th minute throughDainelli. Despite the setback, the team chasing a top three came back into the match through Iago Falqué only to consider a late equaliser to Pepe. Read the rest of this entry »

The Serie A kicked off with a few surprises but there is no surprise whatsoever that the biggest one of the Italian League is the defeat that Juventus experienced after losing against Udinese in the opening match of the season.
Juventus received Udinese at the Juventus Stadium in Torino and sustained their first loss of the season as it was the visiting team which claimed the victory thanks to a solo goal which arrived from Cyril Thereau.
When the match reached it’s end, MassimilianoAllegri stated that his team did not deserve to lose as Juventus had a lot of chances to score but just couldn’t capitalize on those goal-scoring moments properly but to make matters worse, besides the surprising and fairly disappointing scoreboard for the home team, there is something else which has affected the team and its involving one of Allegri’s latest signings Sami Khedira.
The German midfielder Sami Khedira sustained a hamstring injury during a pre-season friendly that Juventus played against Marseille on August 1rst and it was later confirmed that the veteran player had a muscle tear in his right thigh which is going to make the player unable to play in any competitive match for Juventus during the next 2 months.

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.
The 2014 World Cup winner sustained an injury in this season which has left him out of action even after he was recovered and ready to play. Even when Khedira was prepared to play and fully healed from his injuries, he still had to settle with a place on the sidelines. Read the rest of this entry »

A few weeks ago Sami Khedira announced that he will be leaving the Spanish side Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the season. Khedira is not a consistent starter at the Santiago Bernabeu and the player wants to make a move to a club where he can consistently perform which is not going to happen with Real Madrid anytime soon.
The 28 year old German midfielder told the media: “It’s not a decision against Real Madrid. I want to start a new stage in my career and continue to grow.”
Sami Khedira has a tough time trying to get into the team of Carlo Ancelotti as the Italian manager prefers using Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez in the midfield department of the squad.
In a few months’ time, Khedira’s contract with Real Madrid will be over and the German player already has a number of clubs that are preparing offers in order to sign him.
Schalke 04 is one of those interested clubs and the chairman Clemens Tonnies believes that Sami Khedira wants to make a return to Germany which is where his professional playing career started as he began playing with Stuttgart in 2004 and it was the first top European club that he performed in.
Roberto Di Matteo is the coach of Schalke 04 and even though the German club is doing a fine job in this season as they are competing in the top 6 spots of the Bundesliga, Di Matteo is still interested in signing a few more players that could upgrade the team even further and Khedira has the characteristics that could greatly improve the team.
