Diego Costa Hit With Fine By Chelsea After Failing To Return For Pre-Season

Published

on

Diego Costa has been fined two weeks’ wages by Chelsea for failing to return to pre-season training with the club last month.

The striker is currently in his hometown in Brazil and has suggested in an interview with the Daily Mail that he feels Chelsea are blocking his desired move back to former club Atletico Madrid.

It is understood the fine is in the region of £300,000.

In his Mail interview, Costa also criticised Antonio Conte for telling him via a text message earlier this summer that he was no longer wanted at the club.

Costa also threatened to see out the remainder of his contract at Stamford Bridge, but that would mean staying away for two years to allow him to leave the club on a free transfer.

He said: “If I have to I will stay in Brazil. I am open to being a year in Brazil without playing, even if Chelsea fine me for a year and don’t pay me. I’ll come back stronger. If I was in the wrong, I’d go back now and do as they say.”

Costa has not been to Chelsea’s training ground at Cobham since they won the Premier League title in May and there have been reports the club have been concerned he has been putting on weight in order to lower their £50m valuation.

Atletico Madrid want to re-sign the Spain international after he scored 54 senior goals in over 100 appearances at the club, before selling him to Chelsea for £32m in 2014.

SAD UPDATE!! Leicester City Owner Was On Board Crashed Helicopter

Published

on

The Leicester City owner’s helicopter has crashed in a car park outside the club’s ground as it left the stadium following a Premier League match.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was in the helicopter when it came down at about 20:30 BST on Saturday, a source close to the family has told the BBC.

One witness said he saw Leicester player Kasper Schmeichel run out of the stadium towards the scene of the crash.

It is not known how many other people were on board the helicopter.

Leicester had drawn 1-1 against West Ham United at the King Power Stadium, with the match finishing about one hour before the helicopter took off from the pitch.

Witnesses said they saw it just clear the stadium before it spiralled out of control, with some describing seeing a fireball as it crashed.

The club said it was assisting police and emergency services and would issue a more detailed statement in due course.

Under Mr Srivaddhanaprabha’s ownership, Leicester City won the Premier League in 2016, having started the season as 5,000/1 outsiders.

Even Messi Will Struggle At Manchester United – Paul Scholes

Published

on

Former Manchester United player Paul Scholes believes Manchester United have sunk so low that even Lionel Messi would struggle to shine for his old club at the moment.


Scholes claimed that United are turning into the new Liverpool while their old rivals and Manchester City laugh at them. And that Alexis Sanchez is too selfish to be a United player but can’t be sold because of the wages he was offered to turn down City.

He added:

Mourinho’s side will struggle to win the Premier League title with Romelu Lukaku leading the attack. Paul Pogba’s cockiness means he will switch off after showing everyone how good he is.

He’s ‘scared’ that United will lose their best players like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford because of the way they have been treated by the manager.

The old Mourinho has gone and been replaced by a man who moans too much and cannot get the best out of his players.

Lionel Messi’s family brand Diego Maradona ‘ignorant’ for discrediting the Barcelona star


 

Lionel Messi‘s family have hit back at Diego Maradona after the Argentinian soccer legend launched an attack at the Barcelona star

During an interview on Mexican television, Maradona accused his fellow compatriot Lionel Messi of not being a natural leader for Argentina and urged his country to stop treating the Barcelona icon as a ‘God’. Read previous report here.

Now Messi’s cousin Maxi Biancucchi has hit back by saying Maradona was ‘ignorant’ over his comments.

The 34-year-old, a professional footballer with second division Paraguayan side Rubio Nu who is nicknamed El Primo de Messi – Spanish for Messi’s cousin – raged: ‘It’s ignorant to discredit Leo.

‘It’s sad to see how someone who boasts of being a leader can talk so badly about a player who’s currently the best we’ve got and will probably be so for a long time yet.

And he’s done it at a time when he should be helping to rebuild if he loves the national side as he says he does.’
