BUFFON NEED NOT BEAT HIMSELF UP

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Football sometimes is a funny profession. Most of the ones we have out there operate on a clean system of rewards for its greatest achievers.


The scientists have their Nobel, the corporate business world their promotions while the Actors have their Oscar and Academy awards.

Although soccer has its own system, its being more of a collective sport than individual means some players are bound to be caught between the cross fires of team and personal efforts.

The best way to escape, as Ronaldo has shown,is be among and compete with the best no matter what it takes.

Some players though, maybe due to sentiments and emotions, find it hard to be surgical about their desires. Francesco Totti is an example. The retired Roma captain found it hard to cut the apron strings of the city he was born and bred, to entertain the thought of waking up and finding himself in some far away land just so he could stock more silverware into his show glass.

Juventus goal keeper Gianluigi Buffon is another one that came close. Although with the Bianconeri, Buffon had the chance to every major trophy except one that totally deluded him – the Champions League. (more…)

Sami Khedira Unhappy with yet Another Defeat against a Milan Club

Friday, November 18th, 2016

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. (more…)

Sami Khedira Wants Manchester United to Show Schweinsteiger Respect

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

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.

Carlo Ancelotti recently took up his job in Bayern Munich

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

Carlo Ancelotti recently took up his job at yet another major club in the form of Bayern Munich.


The Italian has managed in almost every major league in European football and has only managed very top clubs. He has been in charge of AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea, Paris St Germain, Real Madrid, and now Bayern Munich. He has the potential to become the first manager to win the league title in five major European countries. Bayern are overwhelming favourites to retain the league title that they have won for the last three seasons in succession under Pep Guardiola.

Sami Khedira may be playing for Juventus, but he has been keeping a close watch on the German league as ever. After having played majority of his football with Stuttgart, it is widely expected that Khedira will represent Bayern Munich at some point in the future. For the time being, there are no rumours linking him with a move to Germany. Ancelotti has just taken charge from Guardiola and Khedira knows the Italian extremely well from his time in Real Madrid. He says that Ancelotti has the potential to make Bayern Munich even better. The primary target for Ancelotti will be to make Bayern immensely successful in Europe once again.

Sami Khedirastates that we should not write off fellow countryman Bastian Schweinsteiger

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Sami Khedira has warned people about writing off his teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger. The German international is currently suffering from a tear of the ligament in the knee when playing against England. He has only made his comeback for Manchester United in an injury-plagued season and would have love to have a few games to recover his form before the Euros finals.

Khedira, who is captaining the German side in the absence of Bastian Schweinsteiger, has warned that there is still time for the player to recover and that he is still capable of playing at the highest level. Khedira, who has also had his own share of injuries in the past, believes that Bastian Schweinsteiger has the necessary mental strength to recover and to be part of the German team that will be going to the Euros.

Sami Khedira, who currently plays for Juventus, has enjoyed a good season so far with the Italian league leaders and will expect that they can end the season in style by clinching the Italian League as well as winning the Euros. He stated that it is an honour for him to captain the side in the absence of Bastian Schweinsteiger. (more…)

The future of Khedira lies outside of the Santiago Bernabeu

Friday, April 24th, 2015

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.
