David Luiz impressed with Maurizio Sarri’s philosophy

Chelsea defender David Luiz has been impressed with the philosophy of new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri. The Italian head coach has transformed the Blues into a title-challenging side during the opening weeks of the new Premier League season and Luiz has been impressed with the way he has involved himself with the club’s players.

Speaking to reporters, the Brazil international said: “I love his philosophy. It’s amazing. Before everything he is a great person, as a human he talks with us every single day, he enjoys what he does. He is a guy who really loves football, and it’s always special to work with people like him. With a team like Cardiff, they play physically, with a defensive style, a lot of long balls, fighting for free-kicks. It’s not easy to score one goal against them, but we scored four. We tried to keep the ball, move quickly to create the gaps and score goals.”

Jurgen Klopp won’t rush Fabinho into Liverpool action

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stressed that he would not rush Fabinho into action following his recent recovery from a muscle problem. The Brazil international was the Reds’ first summer signing back in May and he thereafter featured for the Reds extensively during pre-season where he picked up a minor injury in the final friendly versus Napoli.

Since then, Fabinho has failed to make the matchday squad in the opening two league games for the Reds and Klopp has now called for patience with the midfielder, who is still adapting to the club’s style of play, he said: “It is about players understanding the position and who else is available as well, otherwise Fabinho would have been involved in the squad as he was in the first week. That is it. It is different football to what he is used to but he is improving already with big steps. “I can see that in the sessions and that is cool. He is used to playing at a high level in France. It is not about who we play but about how we play.”

CAN BRAZIL LIFT THE WORLD CUP?

Brazil have been largely heralded as one team that could lift the World Cup in Russia. Since Pele helped them to their first ever title in 1958, the Samba boys have grown from strength to strength. They won the titles in 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002. They were touted to lift the title for a record sixth time and they cruised to the semis only for the Germans to cause them a national embarrassment by defeating them 7-1.

This time, they are led by Tite. They would be hoping the recovering Neymar does not get injured and that the rest of the team does not get way over their heads. The Selecao have the name that startles opponents. They also have the players from Alisson to Marcelo to Philippe Coutinho to Willian to Gabriel Jesus.

TITE WORKING HIS MAGIC

It is almost a year that Tite took charge of the Brazil team and what an impact he has made on the team. When he took over, Brazil was a team suffering from a humiliating defeat at the World Cup and Copa America, and many pundits had written them off for the upcoming World Cup in Russia.

However, Tite will change their fortunes around and help the players believe in themselves. The performance speaks for itself with Brazil winning 9 games out of 10 counting for the qualifiers. Indeed Brazil are already qualified for the next World Cup and can now focus on building a team that will allow them to perform in Russia.

Tite is turning Brazil into a force

The Brazilian national football team is going through a revival after being humiliated back on 2014 when losing 1-7 against Germany as they lost the FIFA World Cup of that specific year. Brazil also went on to lose 0-3 after having faced off with Netherlands as they failed to even secure the 3rd spot.

These strings of defeats were a huge disappointment for Brazil as they were hosting that edition of the FIFA World Cup and expectations were high for Neymar along with his squad to showcase their talents but failed to do it in a very unmemorable fashion. (more…)

Neymar is certain that Brazil is the best national side

The €222 million man of Paris Saint-Germain did not hold back in voicing his thoughts concerning the Brazilian national side as he talked earlier in the year about the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup as well as the chances that Brazil has on winning it.


¨There was never a dependency on Neymar. This is Brazil. If focused, our team is the best. We know this, we are humble enough to respect our adversaries, and we have to play. Sometimes one part or the other didn’t fit but the coach Tite arrived and made adjustments¨

“We only learn when we get hurt or do something wrong. I already argued unnecessarily. I got yellow and red cards, harmed myself, harmed my teammates. But time makes us more mature. Nowadays I only think about playing football, I am better in every aspect,” Neymar said.

These statements were released by the 25 year old Brazilian attacker back on March of 2017 as he was talking about his own self-improvements and the Brazilian national side.

Even though Brazil are hands down one of the best national sides in the world in terms of football and titles won, they have not been so dominant in recent times and this especially evident by the 1-7 defeat that Brazil suffered in the 2014 FIFA World Cup against Germany. This was their biggest ever defeat at the World Cup and 1st home loss in a competitive match in over 35 years. (more…)
