Getafe coach Juan Eduardo Esnaider expressed his disappointment as his team is relegated from top flight Spanish football this past weekend.
Getafe were regulated on Sunday evening to Segunda Division after failing to win over Real Betis, while Sporting Gijon defeated Villarreal by a score of 2-0.
After the defeat, Getafe coach Eduardo Esnaider bitterly noted that Villarreal coach Marcelino will be happy about the overall relegation outcome. The Villarreal boss is a former player and coach of Sporting and had repeatedly stated before the game that he wished for the Asturians to avoid regulation, with the Yellow Submarine having nothing to play for. The coach said:
"He'll [Marcelino] be happy.”
Radamel Falcao’s time in English football obvious to be coming to an end after he has found himself out of favour at Chelsea.
The club recently witnessed a managerial change that saw Guus Hiddink return to the club for a second spell. After giving Falcao a couple of opportunities, the Dutchman has decided to trust Diego Costa and Bertrand Traore when it comes to the striking duties. Falcao has been a major disappointment in his second season in English football. Last season, he made a minor impact at Manchester United and this season he has been subdued even further.
Mircea Lucescu, the head coach of Shakhtar Donetsk, has said that he would not try to become an obstruction for any of his players who have the opportunity to go and join the best teams in the continent.
It has come to the news recently that the current Premier League title holders Chelsea wants the Brazil international Alex Texeira who has been a gun player for Shakhtar over the last 3-4 years.
Although, Lucescu denied that Shakhtar had had any official approach from the Blues, but, he made clear that if that happens to be the case in the coming days, the club would surely consider it.
Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu says that he is extremely happy with the performance of the team in the recent Champions League win overMalmo.
A 4-0 victory saw Shakhtar Donetsk finally get three points to close the gap on second placed Paris St Germain. The Romanian team had made a very poor start to the campaign after losing three straight matches in the group stages. This victory, however, provides the team with a glimmer of hope with regards to qualification for the knockout stages. If it does not turn out to be true, then there would at least be Europa league hopes left for Shakhtar Donetsk.
Shakhtar Donetsk have managed to overcome the loss of Douglas Costa, who joined Bayern Munich in a multi-million pound deal, by bringing back one of their former strikers in the form of Eduardo da Silva.
The former Arsenal forward spent four remarkable years with the Ukrainian outfit after having left to the Premier league club. Even though he was just recuperating from a long-term injury, Shakhtar Donetsk had enough faith in him to sign him on this long-term deal. Eduardo did not disappoint in the Ukrainian outfit as a managed to score 24 goals in 81 appearances.
Flamengo have been keen to recover from the poor start that they made at the start of the season.
The first job involved sacking managerVanderleiLuxemburgo, who has been in charge for more than 10 months. It did not take long for the club to make a change. Many were left surprised given that this season was just three games old when he was sacked. However, the worst result in recent seasons for the club came in the form of a 2-1 loss against the newly promoted Avai. This result left the club 17th in the table.
Brazilian outfit Flamengo have managed to secure the signing of defender Pablo Armero on a season-long loan deal from Udinese.
Even though the player belongs to Udinese, he has been at AC Milan on another loan spell. This has been brought to an end in order to facilitate the player to return to Brazilian football with immediate effect.Armero last played in the Brazilian league back in the 2009 campaigns with Palmeiras. They were incidentally managed by current Flamengo boss Vanderlei Luxemburgo. It is quite clear thatLuxemburgo rates Armero as a top name.
Arsene Wenger seems to always be experiencing huge amounts of criticism from the supporters of Arsenal as the fans want to see the club winning a major title which has not happened since the season of 2003-04 when the English side managed to clinch the Premier League trophy.
With 28 Premier League matches having been played, Arsenal is located in the 3rd spot with 54 points and even though the chances on actually winning the English league is far-fetched, it still has been a very impressive season so far for Arsene Wenger and his squad.
Arsenal recently sealed a 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford as Arsenal sealed their position in the last 4 remaining teams that are competing in the FA Cup.
Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal is a team that is expected to make a number of changes within the next few months in order to change their current situation in the Premier League as they are located outside of the top 5 spots of the English League.
The future of certain players are unclear and this is the case of Lukas Podolski as he still has not made a Premier League appearance for Arsenal in this season and the German forward has already expressed his frustration on having to settle with a place on the sidelines of the club.
Vanderlei Luxemburgo, who is in charge of Brazilian club Flamengo for a fourth spell, says that he has an agreement with the club’s board to remain in charge of the team even if results do not go as planned over the next few months.
The former Real Madrid and Brazil national team boss is regarded as one of the finest South American coaches. However, he has been unable to get a consistent set of results with Flamengo in his fourth spell. The 62-year-old may have a strong line-up with the likes of Eduardo Da Silva, who has played for Arsenal and Shakhtar Donetsk in the past, in the starting line-up, but he has been unable to get Flamengo challenging for the title.
