Barca do not deserve to progress in Champions League after Inter failure, fumes Xavi

Barca do not deserve to progress in Champions League after Inter failure, fumes Xavi

Sports News
Mysport99 - Xavi declared Barcelona "do not deserve" to progress in the Champions League after failing to beat Inter at home on Wednesday. Robert Lewandowski took his tally to 14 goals in all competitions this season – only Erling Haaland has scored more in Europe's top five leagues – with two late equalisers in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Inter. The Poland striker first levelled after Nicolo Barella and Lautaro Martinez put Inter in front following Ousmane Dembele's opener, before cancelling out Robin Gosens' 89th-minute strike three minutes later. Lewandowski now has five goals in his first two Champions League games for Barca at Camp Nou, though that meant little to Xavi after Barca were left trailing Inter by three points with just two games to go. "If you don't bea...
Jurgen Klopp sends warning to Darwin Nunez after Crystal Palace red card

Jurgen Klopp sends warning to Darwin Nunez after Crystal Palace red card

Sports News
Mysport99 - Jurgen Klopp has warned Darwin Nunez that he must learn to control himself after he was sent off for a headbutt during Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday. Nunez spent a large part of the game tussling with Palace defender Joachim Andersen and tensions eventually boiled over 57 minutes in as the Liverpool striker pushed his head into Andersen's chin and was swiftly given his marching orders by the referee. It took a while for things to settle as Nunez refused to leave the pitch in favour of protesting the decision, forcing James Milner to intervene and force the Uruguayan to depart - all while Klopp could be seen urging Nunez to get off the pitch. “I’ve seen it back, of course it’s a red card,” said the Liverpool manager. “In the game, I could not ...
Man Utd not interested in Marcus Rashford sale amid PSG links

Man Utd not interested in Marcus Rashford sale amid PSG links

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester United have no interest in parting ways with Marcus Rashford this summer, Mysport99 understands. The England forward entered this summer on the fringes of the United setup but, as Mysport99 revealed in June, his sights were set firmly on regaining his place at Old Trafford and he was looking forward to working under Ten Hag and Steve McClaren, both of whom are known to be fans of his. The managerial duo have spoken with Rashford about his role in the team and his future at United, and the 24-year-old is happy working under Ten Hag and McClaren. Rashford has less than a year remaining on his contract - although United do have an option to extend by 12 months - and Mysport99 understands that intermediaries representing Paris Saint-Germain, who have shown ...
Monaco complete signing of Takumi Minamino from Liverpool

Monaco complete signing of Takumi Minamino from Liverpool

Sports News
Mysport99 - Monaco have confirmed the signing of Japan international Takumi Minamino from Liverpool. Minamino joined the Reds midway through their Premier League title-winning 2019/20 campaign from Red Bull Salzburg having impressed against them during a Champions League clash earlier that season. However, he failed to nail down a regular role for Jurgen Klopp's side and made just 55 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions. He also spent the second half of the 2020/21 season on loan at Southampton. Mysport99 understands that Fulham had been hopeful of signing Minamino, but it was announced on Tuesday that he has instead joined Ligue 1 side Monaco. The 27-year-old becomes their first signing of the summer transfer window. Monaco will return to the Champions League at the...

Man City confirm signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester City have finalised the signing of Norway striker Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Haaland was wanted by most top sides across Europe but it was confirmed last month that City had won the race for his signature, with the Premier League champions parting with a cool £55m to land the 21-year-old. With Norway's international break now over, Haaland has jetted into Manchester to put pen to paper on a five-year contract. “This is a proud day for me and my family,” he said. “I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons. You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me. “There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the g...
Marcelo confirms he will not retire upon leaving Real Madrid

Marcelo confirms he will not retire upon leaving Real Madrid

Sports News
Mysport99 - Marcelo has confirmed that his departure from Real Madrid after more than 15 years at the club will not signal his retirement as he plans to carry on playing. The Brazilian left-back played 546 games for Real following his January 2007 arrival, winning the Champions League on five occasions in addition to six La Liga titles. Marcelo recently turned 34 and had seen his game time significantly decrease since 2019 due to a combination of injury trouble and falling behind Ferland Mendy in the pecking order. His long service to the club was honoured with a special ceremony at the Bernabeu on Monday afternoon, during which Marcelo referred to himself as a ‘Madridista’. But at the same time, the defender vowed not to hang up his boots just yet, even insisting he would...

AC Milan win first Serie A title since 2011

Sports News
Mysport99 - AC Milan have won their first Serie A title since 2011, beating Sassuolo on the final day of the season to lift the Scudetto. I Rossoneri went into their final game of the season knowing that a win, or matching inner city rivals Inter's result, would be enough to secure the title, and they did just that. They raced into a one goal lead in the 17th minute thanks to their star man Rafael Leao and continued to dominate thereafter, scoring a further two in front of a Mapei Stadium jam-packed with Milan fans. Milan have been the most consistently impressive team in Italy in recent months, going 16 games unbeaten at the end of the campaign to fend off competition from Inter. The highlights of this remarkable run of form including a vital derby win over Inter in Febru...
Erik ten Hag to attend Man Utd trip to Crystal Palace

Erik ten Hag to attend Man Utd trip to Crystal Palace

Sports News
Mysport99 - Erik ten Hag is expected to be in attendance when Manchester United take on Crystal Palace on Sunday for the final day of the 2021/22 season, before officially starting work the next day. United's trip to Selhurst Park is their last game of a disastrous campaign, with the Red Devils already guaranteed to record their lowest-ever Premier League points tally. They could even drop down to seventh into the Europa Conference League qualifying place if they lose to Patrick Vieira's side and West Ham also defeat Brighton on the final day. Ten Hag has already been in the UK this week to get to work at United early, effectively ending his Ajax contract slightly early and forgoing a post-season trip to Curacao in order to give himself the maximum preparation time for what i...

Divock Origi agrees personal terms with AC Milan

Sports News
Mysport99 - Divock Origi has agreed personal terms with AC Milan, rejecting the chance to stay in the Premier League to seal a move to the San Siro, Mysport99 understands. Origi is available on a free transfer this summer with his contract at Anfield expiring. He was offered an extension but the Belgian has decided now is the right time to move on. Origi joined Liverpool from Lille in 2014, although he actually arrived a year later after spending a season on-loan back in France. The 27-year-old has never been a first-team regular, starting less than 40 games during his time with the club, but he has become a cult figure among the Anfield faithful. He has scored some crucial goals during his time on Merseyside, haunting Everton on more than one occasion and also grabbing th...

Lionel Messi’s camp deny claims of Inter Miami deal

Sports News
Mysport99 - Lionel Messi’s family have firmly denied claims that he will purchase a 35% stake in MLS club Inter Miami, currently co-owned by David Beckham, and join the team next year. Such rumours emerged on Spanish language show Futbol Total DirecTV this week. But Le Parisien contacted Messi’s representatives and were told, “It is completely false.” The French publication was also informed, however, that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s future at Paris Saint-Germain is not certain at this moment as no decision has been made. “Leo has not yet decided on his future,” was the published response. Messi has a contract with PSG until 2023 and it was reported in April that he had decided to remain with the club for the second year of the deal he signed on arrival in Pari...
