Latest News | Jose Mourinho Charged By FIFA Over Abusive words

Image
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association for abusive language following his side's Premier League win over Newcastle United this month, English soccer's governing body said on Tuesday.

The Portuguese coach was reported to have directed an insult in his native language towards a camera which was live tracking him down the touchline after his side's 3-2 comeback win at Old Trafford.

"It is alleged that his (Mourinho's) language at the end of the fixture, as captured by the broadcast footage, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2018 to respond to the charge," the FA said in a statement.
Mourinho's punishment, if found guilty, could include a touchline ban, which would mean him sitting in the stands for the game against his former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard has revealed his appreciation for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho
and said the Portuguese is the one coach he would like to work with again.
The Belgian forward played under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge for more than two years and was an integral part of Chelsea's Premier League title win in 2014-15.

However, the following season was marred by poor performances and reports of friction between certain members of the squad and Mourinho, who left by mutual consent in December, 2015.
Hazard, who will face his former manager when Chelsea host United in the league next Saturday, admitted he made a complacent start to that campaign.

"In 12 years I've only had one bad season, the last six months under Mourinho and it was partly my own fault. After the title, we asked Mourinho for extra holidays. I came back totally out of shape," Hazard told Belgian newspaper HLN.
"Mourinho's image of an extremely defensive coach isn't completely right…

Odion Ighalo Fires down at Libya with a Hat-trick

Image
Odion Ighalo netted a hat-trick as Nigeria claimed an emphatic 4-0 win over Libya in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo on Saturday.

Eager to right the wrongs from last year on home soil, Nigeria proved their quality with a commanding victory over a Libyan side rocked by the resignation of their head coach in the build-up to the clash.
Victory moves Nigeria up above Libya in Group E, a point behind Bafana Bafana who dispatched the Seychelles 6-0 in Soweto earlier today.

The Super Eagles hit the front as early as the fourth minute following a goalkeeping howler by Mohamed Abdaula. The Libyan captain coughed up possession before bringing down Ighalo inside the area, leaving the referee with little choice.
Having won the penalty, the former Watford man stepped up and duly converted from the spot; firing home into the left corner of the net to send the home fans into delirium.

The hosts continued to dominate the early proceedings and…

Gabriel Jesus and Alex Sandro Gave Brazil 2-0 Over Saudi Arabia on Friday

Image
Goals near the end of each half from Gabriel Jesus and Alex Sandro gave Brazil a 2-0 win over Saudi Arabia on Friday in an unusually subdued performance by the five-time world champions. Brazil had scored 16 goals in their four previous wins against the Saudis but the home side matched the visitors, particularly in midfield, for most of the game. Brazil had the better of the first half and Jesus finally broke the deadlock just two minutes from halftime when he ran on to an inch-perfect pass from Neymar and slotted the ball home from an angle. Forward Neymar was again Brazil's best player but his teammates let him down with their finishing as Saudi Arabia came into the match more in the second period. Brazil also had two efforts disallowed for offside and Saudi keeper Mohammed Al-Owais was sent off five minutes from time after VAR confirmed he handled the ball outside the box. "We're aware we need to get better, that we can do better," Sandro said. "Obviously the cli…

Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson are one of the greatest Managers of the past 30 years - Michael Carrick

Image
Manchester United former Player,  Michael Carrick Says Jose Mourinho is in an elite group alongside Alex Ferguson as one of the greatest managers of the past 30 years 

The former midfielder, 37, took up a coaching role at the end of last season after a distinguished playing career at West Ham, Tottenham and United.
Mourinho will be hoping last weekend’s thrilling 3-2 comeback win against Newcastle sparks a revival after a dismal run of results saw United slip well off the pace in the Premier League and exit the League Cup.


Carrick told Britain’s Press Association that the most striking thing about the Portuguese boss was his track record in winning trophies over many years.
“He’s managed to win trophies at United,” said Carrick. “We’re striving now to get back to it, but as a manager, you can’t hide from the fact about what he’s done. It’s up there with the very best.

“Fortunately for me, you look at the best managers over the last 25-30 years. You’re picking the top three, top five — two …

Eden Hazard - Moving To Spanish Club will help me win the World Best Player

Image
Chelsea's Eden Hazard believes he may need to join a Spanish club in order to be crowned the world's best player, but he ruled out a move in the January transfer window.
The Belgium international's contract with Chelsea runs until June 2020 and the London club want him to renew his deal. Hazard, however, has said it is his dream to play for Real Madrid.
Asked on Thursday whether he needed to play in Spain to win the Ballon d'Or, awarded annually to the world's best player, a smiling Hazard responded: "That's why I want to go, maybe."
Yet the winger, who is on international duty with Belgium, added that he would not be moving in January.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi and former Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo have won the Ballon d'Or for the last nine years while playing for Spanish clubs.
Ronaldo was the last player from outside of Spain to win the award when he was at Manchester United in 2008. Hazard has been in scintillating form for Chelsea th…

Chelsea Player Ruben Loftus - Cheek is Ready to Hand over Transfer Request by January

Image
Ruben Loftus-Cheek should demand to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to Sam Allardyce.

The 22-year-old has played only 33 minutes in the Premier League this season and admitted in the summer that he was reluctant to remain at Stamford Bridge if he did not get regular playing time.
Loftus-Cheek excelled during his season-long loan at Crystal Palace last term and Allardyce believes the midfielder needs to ‘build his own career’ away from Chelsea.
‘I’m disappointed for Loftus-Cheek,’ Allardyce told talkSPORT.

‘Chelsea have told him he’s going to be a part of the team this season and, if that is the case, they haven’t lived up to that yet. READ MORE :Hazard Move to Real Madrid is still On Process

‘What he did for Crystal Palace last season and for England at the World Cup, I thought this would be a big season for him at Chelsea, but it’s simply not happening.
‘If I were Loftus-Cheek I would be battering the door down in January and saying, ‘that’s it, I need to get…
