Will Remi Garde make a return to Lyon?

Submitted on Wed, 05/04/2016 - 06:10

A few years ago, Remi Garde helped Lyon in winning successive Ligue 1 titles and after having taken charge of the French club for around 3 years, Garde opted to become the coach of the Premier League club Aston Villa but things turned out to be a disaster for Garde as he led the English squad to 13 defeats and only 3 victories.

After only 4 months, Remi Garde left the managerial position at Aston Villa and now Garde is out of job but it’s believed that Lyon are interested on bringing him back.

Lyon has recently had a switch of managers as Bruno Genesio was selected as the new manager of the club back in December of 2015 and so far things have been going superbly for the French coach as Lyon are in the top spots of the French League and even managed to claim a triumph against the champions of France, PSG.

Rafael Da Silva is major reason for Rivarly between MU and Liverpool

Submitted on Wed, 04/27/2016 - 07:58

If you need someone on your side who understands the Manchester United versus Liverpool rivalry and how important of a game that is, then look no further than Rafael Da Silva.

This man knows all too well how deep the rivalry goes and how important the game is. He spent seven years in the first team. Many watched in excitement and in horror at some of the plays.

In one scenario, we saw Philippe Coutinho casually just cruising past Guillermo Varela and people from that point had to wonder how Rafael Da Silva would've handled the situation or if he could've handled it better. Maybe he would've handled it worse but there's one thing for sure, the spirit for the game would've been there. Many speculate that Coutinho would've never made it past him and that he would've been knocked down flat.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leading the way in the goal-scoring charts with a total of 23 goals from 23 appearances; he has played a crucial role in this season for PSG.

Even though PSG have a substantially big lead over every other club in Ligue 1, the remaining spots of the French League are being tightly contested with only a few points separating each team.

In the 7 years that the Brazilian defender Rafael da Silva spent performing for Manchester United, he could never really stand out and make a name for himself and it truly came as a surprise to see him remain in the club for such a long period of time.

Submitted on Mon, 12/07/2015 - 07:57

Carlo Ancelotti has opened the door to as a potential Chelsea return after admitting that he has no grudges against his former club.

The Italian lost his job immediately after the game against Everton. The manner of his dismissal was seen as ‘lacking class’ towards the manager who had led the club to a league title only 12 months ago. Ancelotti’s team managed to win the 2009-10 league campaign in incredible fashion by breaking several records. That team still holds the record for the most number of goals scored in a single league season.
