Leeds transfer news: Whites interested in MLS forward – Lionel Messi is a fan



Views:50|Rating:nan|View Time:3:14Minutes|Likes:0|Dislikes:0
Marcelo Bielsa is looking to strengthen his side as Leeds continue their push towards the Premier League. Zardes impressed for Columbus Crew in MLS last term and is now attracting interest from a number of English clubs, including the Whites, Norwich, Crystal Palace, Fulham and Huddersfield, according to TEAMtalk. But while some fans at Elland Road may not be familiar with Zardes, the USA international has made headlines in the past due to being hyped up by Barcelona icon Lionel Messi. Back in 2015, the Argentinian superstar handpicked 10 young footballers for Adidas’ ‘Backed by Messi’ campaign, which saw the players given a pair of Messi’s boots to wear for the season.  Zardes was joined by the likes of Newcastle star Kenedy, Maxwell Cornet of Lyon and Manchester United’s former starlet James Wilson, who were all picked as some of the best up-and-coming stars across the globe by Messi in 2015. Man City youngster Patrick Roberts, Chelsea loanee Nathan and Ajax hotshot Kasper Dolberg were some of the players chosen in 2017. Zardes hit 20 goals in MLS last season and added to his tally of six goals for the USA in 40 appearances. However, Leeds fans may not be too happy with an interview the forward gave to Copa90 back in 2017, where he admitted he supports Manchester United.  Bielsa was recently pressed about whether his side would be busy in this month’s transfer window. But the Elland Road boss appeared to play down his side’s intentions before the deadline. “I don’t think that many players will come in,” he told reporters ahead of his side’s clash with QPR earlier this month. “And I couldn’t tell you if actually there’s a player who will come or not. If the club can get players who are better than the ones we have to come and in the position where we suffered some injuries, for example Samu Saiz left, Pablo now plays as a playmaker and we need a winger.  “The injury of Jamal Blackman has not been covered by another player. “These are the two positions that were solved at the start of the competition and now we’re trying to find another one. “We can also say that at the beginning of the season Jack Clarke was not a possibility, but now he is.”

ESPN FC’s Craig Burley, Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno break down player by player how Barcelona allowed Liverpool to run through them as Lionel Messi and company let a huge advantage in the UEFA Champions League slip away for the second year in a row. The Reds rolled to a 4-0 win as Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal were all over-matched in the midfield and their back line were left to look foolish by Liverpool’s Divock Origi, Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum.

Liverpool news : Lionel Messi left crying down Anfield corridors after Barcelona eliminated



Views:38288|Rating:2.13|View Time:2:59Minutes|Likes:118|Dislikes:159
Lionel Messi was left in tears after Barcelona’s Anfield humiliation.  The Argentine superstar cut a desolate figure in the corridors of the famous old stadium as he broke down, and was inconsolable after the defeat.  Messi had promised the Barca faithful he would get them to the final in Madrid this season, and the frustration and bitter disappointment of the failure to deliver on that vow got the better of him.  Teams officials tried to console him after the game, but the tears still came for the striker regarded as one of the all time greats.  And to add insult to injury, he was left behind by the Spanish club, when they made a hasty departure from Anfield. Read More Lionel Messi ‘left behind by Barcelona team bus’ after Liverpool defeat  Messi was selected to perform UEFA’s random drugs test after the game and give a urine sample. But that process took longer than expected.  Barca were in no mood to linger at the scene of one of their greatest-ever humiliations, and so club officials order the coach to leave for John Lennon airport.  Messi eventually was taken back through the media mixed zone, and kept his glazed eyes fixed firmly to the floor as he passed through reporters without even acknowledging their presence. Read More Liverpool vs Barcelona: Spanish media react to amazing Champions League comeback   He was then taken in a car to the airport to join the flight back to Barcelona , where the Catalan giants are now facing an inevitable inquest into another failure to reach the Champions’ League final.  After the game, their players offered humble apologies for letting the fans down. Luis Suarez admitted his side played like schoolboys with their naive defending, and he said: “We have to apologize for the attitude, we were not a team. To our families, our children, our fans, we have to ask their forgiveness.”   And veteran midfielder Sergio Busquets added: “”They have been better than us. I apologise. Liverpool have been smarter than us, they were faster.”

Liverpool completed one of the most remarkable comebacks in history to reach the Champions League final.  Their 4-0 win against Barcelona ranks alongside the 2005 final against AC Milan for sheer spirited turnarounds.  Many counted them out. And it’s easy to see why given they trailed 3-0.  But Liverpool have a knack for this sort of thing and Jurgen Klopp’s side delivered a truly memorable performance.  Divock Origi’s early goal gave them confidence and Georginio Wijnaldum, a half-time substitute, scored twice in two minutes to level the tie on aggregate. Fans breathtaking ‘YNWA’ rendition Robertson mugs off Suarez Klopp swears in post-match interview  Then, in the 79th minute, Origi smashed home from close range following quick thinking from Trent Alexander-Arnold to book Liverpool’s place in the final.  While the celebrations will have run long into the night on Merseyside, spare a thought for Lionel Messi. Messi ‘left behind by Barcelona bus’  This was supposed to be the year Messi reclaimed his place at the top of football’s pyramid by winning the treble with Barcelona.  But that dream is over now, with Barcelona fluffing their lines in the Champions League for the second season in a row.  And things got even more miserable for the Argentinian when he was left behind at Anfield by Barcelona’s team bus.  According to Spanish television channel El Chiringuito – and brought to our attention by the Mirror – Messi was held back by anti-doping testers.  Barcelona, in no mood to hang about, left for the airport and their star man made alternative arrangements to join up with his teammates after providing a sample.  Messi declined the media as he walked through the mixed zone after the defeat, his glum face proof of his disappointment.  It means another year without a Champions League trophy for Messi and Barcelona.  Not since 2015 have the Blaugrana been European champions, a rather questionable drought considering they have the best player in the world.

Liverpool will come up against former Anfield favourites Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho in the Champions League semi-finals.  The Reds secured their place in the last four of the competition with a 4-1 away win against Porto, completing a 6-1 aggregate success.   They will now face Barcelona in a mouthwatering semi-final following their thrashing of Manchester United on Tuesday.   Suarez and Coutinho have both not played against Liverpool in a competitive match since their moves from Anfield to the Nou Camp.  Coutinho left in a £140m deal in January 2018 while Suarez ended his stay on Merseyside in the summer of 2014. Read More Jurgen Klopp’s response when asked how he’s planning to stop Lionel Messi  Both are likely to feature in the two legs, fitness permitting, and Jurgen Klopp was asked about the proposition of taking on two former Liverpool stars.   “Honestly, the only thing I am thinking about is Cardiff on Sunday,” the Reds boss said.  “For these two boys, it is very special, because they are Liverpool legends.  “But I don’t think it will be a friendly game, we have to fight and work and they will do that as well.  “It is a wonderful game, Liverpool vs Barcelona in the semi-finals. Now let’s try to do the best there and we will see what happens.” Read More Jordan Henderson makes admission after Liverpool’s win over Porto  Barca also face the unenviable task of trying to stop Lionel Messi with the Argentine scoring twice to down United at the Nou Camp.  On coming up against the Barca skipper, Klopp added: “Thank God I don’t have to think about that tonight. I have a few nights.  “No one has so far managed it but we will try. We have a few jobs before that.”

Does Barcelona's collapse vs. Liverpool mean Lionel Messi isn't the GOAT? | ESPN FC

Alejandro Moreno, Dan Thomas, Steve Nicol and Craig Burley of ESPN FC offer post-match analysis for Liverpool vs. Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semifinals, which LFC won 4-0 to overturn a 3-0 first-leg loss thanks to goals from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum. The topic at hand, though, is whether the loss means Lionel Messi is not the GOAT, or if someone else (Ernesto Valverde?) deserves the blame.

Ritchie oh sorry clings onto his job as on the garner social makes a claim for his Liverpool have some defensive worries ahead of their clash with Bayern Munich tonight Gerard piqué calls out his Barcelona teammates Dortmund slip up yet again and we have a roundup of the day's transfer rumors there are more coming up in the next few minutes as I'm your host Matt phone like you were the more popular than this is the Daily News first up and the FA cup holders are out of there last night Mauricio Sherry's Chelsea lost who knew – only gonna slow South Manchester United's in what was another fantastic win for the Manchester United injuring boss in the capital they knocked out a snore a few weeks ago and now they've knocked out Chelsea and it looks like we could be heading for an awesome FA Cup final between Manchester United and Manchester City now I know a lot of the magic in the FA Cup resides with the lower league sides but I just love to see that final anyway Altamura t oh sorry after his team lost and he heard shouts from the crowd saying sorry ball well he said he's worried about the results not the fans I hate to break it to you mate but your results are not looking so good and not having the fans on your side and completely alienating them in press conferences is never a good idea just ask Jose Jose Mourinho as to whether and I'll get the sack this week I highly doubt it I can't see you Roman Abramovich sacking him a few days before a League Cup final which is what they've got against Manchester City on Sunday however if we risky Osiris men are completely embarrassed by Pep Guardiola's Sky Blues just like the world last weekend in the six nil defeat I can really see sorry packing his bags and leaving Stamford Bridge early next week that's even before they head into the London derby with Tottenham but moving on next to the Champions League where tonight Liverpool take on Bayern Munich and there's some injury news coming out of an field which isn't too positive Jurgen Klopp has said in this press conference that he's having to wait minute by minute to see whether or not deja la verne' will pass his fitness test and be able to play tonight the grow-out defender has not places a 7th of January and this is a rather big situation for him to just be thrust back into the starting lineup it's he's not fit this afternoon and he does still make the team he'll be playing in the last 16 of the Champions League against Bayern Munich probably half it doesn't really make good reading for Liverpool fans if he doesn't make the side than for being old probably be the most likely to step back into the centre back role this is because Virgil van Dyke is suspended and Joe Gomez is out with a long term injury so yes it'll probably be Fubini ohoo slots in alongside Joel Matty the Brazilian midfielder has done it against wolves in the FA Cup however klopse did mention as I have just done that this is a little bit different it is the Champions League against Bayern Munich despite this though if Rubino does move back into central defence the midfield will not be one player lighter as geni why now dome has returned to full fitness well though he probably won't be starting tonight's game in the centre of the park he will be on the bench and provide another option should Liverpool need it from Bayern Munich side of things though a quick one and yesterday we mentioned that Kingsley comment was past fit after picking up a knock against Alex Berg on Friday night and yesterday in his press conference and he canal Kovac said that Chiron Boateng could be brought back into the squad despite not being in the initial travelling team he didn't travel with the squad after having an illness which they were worried could be contagious most likely a flu however if he has got over that he may make a late flight to Liverpool to be in the matchday squad of course let me know your predictions down below on not only the Liverpool against Bayern Munich game but also on the Barcelona Leone game the other Champions League fixture tonight well Jared pique has called out his teammates than not being good enough he said they're gonna suffer greatly at the hands of Leon if they don't pick up their form which in recent weeks has seen them have three draws and one very close victory of a vital lid in the weekend Leo Messi scored and missed the penalty at the weekend but as I mentioned before it was their first victory in what seemed like an age in fact it was their first victory this month much like with the other fixture this evening there are some injury worries as well and it could be a big night for Samuel MTT the phrase defender playing against his former club has been out since November and much I love and could find himself thrust back into the limelight at such a crucial match of the season as the feather defender Thomas from Arlen well he's always been interesting from Arsenal so the fact that he was injured or missed the game literally isn't even news don't even why I gave it that 10 seconds absolutely on though they have both Nabil's fake here and tangoing underbelly both doubts of the match which would be a real shame from a neutrals perspective both of them have been fantastic this season and are heavily linked with big money moves away to some of Europe's biggest clubs in the summer so for them to get their chance from the big stage against Barcelona well it's a shame they might miss it besides being a Barcelona is tough anyways even when they aren't on the best of form so without two of your best players I think Leon may struggle tonight I'm moving onto a piece of Bundesliga news as last night on an unusual Monday night for the bundesliga top of the league Dortmund drew with bottom of the league Nuremberg which is seriously hampered their chances of winning the title now I say this even with them three points ahead but Bayern Munich are informed and heavily breathing down their neck maybe yoga club has left that little bit of a bottle job back at Dortmund and taken it to Liverpool with him after all Dorman a Liverpool were both miles ahead at the top of their league respectively and are now really feeling the pressure as the Dortmund though well things just keep getting worse for them alongside Christine pelisek being out for the next few weeks meaning who missed the weekend's game against Leyva Kuzon and the second leg of the difficult tie they've got against Tottenham in the Champions League they also have a tough front of fixtures starting this weekend with labour cruising they're the team that I've really informed the Bundesliga have won their pass for games and that includes taking a massive Scout by beating Bayern Munich 3-1 so things are looking tough for Lucy and fathers men at the moment however that doesn't mean that the competition is necessarily over as mentioned before they are still three points ahead and I think they could still go on to regain their fine form and win the Bundesliga title but what do you guys think let me know in the comments section below and now finally we can come to a bit of transfer news where as I mentioned every couple of days the transfer window isn't open but people are still working behind the scenes to get some early deals done for the summer Arsenal will make another move in the summer to bring in over Banega who's previously worked with unite Emery Real Madrid are willing to spend 44 million pounds on Porto defender a their military Juventus have inquired to Inter Milan about the availability of Morocco D however haven't spoke to him or his agent just yet and finally lastly but not least it's a bit of a wild one but Liverpool interest in bringing in Jayden Sancho they didn't manage to get him when he left Manchester City and now two years later they are looking into the possibility of signing him again however he will be far more expensive this time and very quickly if Mauricio so he does get fired then who's gonna be next to replace it well thankfully last week I did a video on this revealing these top 5 candidates that I think could fill it in the hot seat at Stamford Bridge which you can check in the description below so there you have it for today's Daily News of course I've said it a million times let me know in the comment section all of your thoughts on everything in today's Daily News and also your predictions for the Champions League games this evening and tomorrow night's games well I'll see you there you can also hit the like button and click here or here to

Liverpool news : Carragher chooses who is 'greater' between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Jamie Carragher is backing the English clubs to stop Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League, and claims that one of the world stars is “a greater player” than the other.   Messi’s Barcelona will take on Manchester United in the last eight of the tournament following the draw on Friday, while Ronaldo’s Juventus will take on Ajax having avoided the other three sides in the hat.   And Liverpool legend Carragher feels as though the tournament is building towards the old rivals facing off against each other in the final, unless the English sides can stop them.   “In reality, the competition is heading towards a showdown between emerging forces and familiar faces,” he wrote in his Daily Telegraph column. Read More Lionel Messi’s Champions League ‘curse’ and what it means for Man Utd  “Ronaldo and Messi – the greatest goalscorer of all time and the greater player of all time – show no sign of giving up their dominance of European competition, their individual displays in midweek further demonstrating their exceptional skill and motivation levels.   “They bring belief to their clubs and fear to opposition. The fact remains unless the English clubs can find a way to stop Ronaldo and Messi, this year’s final will be Juventus versus Barcelona .”  But Carragher went on to claim that the English sides can still have their say.  “I believe the English can and will overcome Ronaldo and Messi this season.” he said.  “I believe two English clubs will make it to Madrid and the will continue to have at least two participants in the semi-finals for the next five years.

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw took place on Friday morning throwing up some mouth-watering clashes.  Having done away with German giants Bayern Munich, Liverpool were arguably handed the easiest assignment as they were drawn alongside Porto while Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus will take on Real Madrid conquerer’s, Ajax.  Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will tussle it out in the only all-English clash in the last eight.  The biggest tie of the round will see newly reborn Manchester United tackle Spanish superpower Barcelona.  The Red Devils looked all but out after Paris Saint-Germain tore them apart at Old Trafford but staged a monumental comeback, conquering their Parisian Everest to book a spot in the last eight. Manchester United’s Champions League quarter-final tie against Barcelona had to be reversed Video of Lionel Messi’s 22 goals against English clubs in the Champions League Lionel Messi was superb the last time Barcelona played Man Utd at Old Trafford  However, fans will have cringed when United were coughed up alongside Barcelona on Friday, in what can only be described as the worst possible draw for the Manchester side.  Barca have a fantastic record against United in European competition, winning their last two encounters, both finals, quite comfortably.  With the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez bearing down on them, it will be interesting to see how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s resurgent side holds out.  Messi especially has been in sublime form of late and history proves that the Argentine superstar loves a game against United.  With 36 goals to his name already this season, Messi will be confident of halting United’s progress in this year’s competition.  The Red Devils, however, might just find some solace in Messi’s dreadful record in Champions League quarter-finals.  The 31-year-old has failed to score in last 11 fixtures at this stage of the tournament – a bizarre baron stretch spanning over six seasons.  In fact, you have to go as far back as April 2013 to find the last time Barca’s leading goalscorer netted in a last eight tie.  Last season, Messi was helpless as his side crashed out at the same stage after a stunning 3-0 loss to Roma and United will be hoping for a similarly toothless performance from the great man.  The five-time Balon d’Or winner also drew a blank in prior quarter-final clashes with Juventus, twice against Atletico Madrid and in Barca’s 2015 tie with PSG.  Should the curse of the last eight strike again for Messi, United might just have a chance of causing a big upset.  It’s going to be quite a tie – we can’t wait.
