Hermoso holds the key to Salisu’s future

first_img During his time at the RCDE Stadium, Hermoso became a regular in the Spain setup, but his lack of minutes under Diego Simeone has seen him fall out of contention, which will no doubt be in the defender’s head ahead of the European Championship next summer. read also:Salisu signed a long time contract with Rangers – Okolie Nevertheless, it all depends on what the transfer market has to offer. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Atletico Madrid are expected to allow Mohammed Salisu to remain on loan at Real Valladolid if they are able to complete the centre-back’s signing, but his arrival at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano may be brought forward if Los Colchoneros are able to sell Mario Hermoso. Loading… The Spaniard’s contract at Atletico will run until June 2024, but Hermoso’s lack of game time – he is now the fourth-choice centre-back at the club – may cause him to look elsewhere, while those upstairs at the Wanda would not necessarily be opposed to his departure. Of course, after paying Espanyol 25 million euros (and another four in variables) last summer, Atletico would want to receive an equivalent figure if they were to sell.Advertisement Promoted Content7 Reasons Why You Might Want To Become A VegetarianWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black Holes7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of ArtThe Best Cars Of All TimeInsane Japanese Tech That Make You Wish You Lived In Japanlast_img read more

‘There’s a God of football,’ says Gattuso after Napoli’s Italian Cup win

first_img Loading… Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo missed a chance to break the deadlock after five minutes, having also missed a penalty in a goalless semi-final, second leg match against AC Milan last weekend. “It’s unusual two 0-0 draws for us but that just shows the lack of sharpness after such a long break,” said Sarri. “Ronaldo’s in the same shape as the others, like Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa, he is lacking the sharpness to do what works best for him.” Napoli had the best chances of the first half with Lorenzo Insigne’s curling effort denied and Buffon clearing Diego Demme from close range. Juventus Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has never won the Italian Cup trophy. The 61-year-old former Napoli coach had also been chasing his first coaching trophy in Italy, and second in his career after leading Chelsea to the Europa League last season. “There is disappointment for the lads, for the club, for the fans,” said Sarri. “At this moment we lack brilliance to make the game dangerous, and without that brilliance, it becomes more difficult.” – Ronaldo lacking sharpness – The final was played behind closed doors, in the silence of Rome’s Stadio Olimpico which should have hosted Italy versus Switzerland in Euro 2020 on June 17. Gennaro Gattuso hailed the ‘God of football’ after he lifted his first coaching trophy as Napoli beat Juventus 4-2 on penalties to win the Italian Cup for the sixth time on Wednesday. The final had ended 0-0 in an empty Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Paulo Dybala and Danilo both missed their spot-kicks for record 13-times Italian Cup champions Juventus with Arkadiusz Milik slotting in the winner for Napoli past veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon. It is the first trophy for the southerners since 2014, and also a maiden coaching trophy for Gattuso, who took over from Carlo Ancelotti in December. For former Italy World Cup winner Gattuso his first coaching success comes after the death of his 37-year-old sister Francesca from a rare illness. “In life you cannot accept some things, but football has given me a lot and a great passion,” said the 42-year-old former AC Milan great. “I feel I have a great responsibility. I know I cannot give up and I have never done in my career. “I saw a team tonight that wanted to win, we deserved it. “There’s a God of football, who makes you reap all that you’ve sown. “I am proud of what my lads have done. Now we must continue with this spirit also in the championship, to recover the disadvantage.” Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso (L) and club president Aurelio De Laurentiis (3rdL holding trophy) celebrate with players after winning the Italian Cup. Napoli have been reborn under Gattuso and are now sixth in the league table as they target the Champions League places when Serie A returns this weekend after a three-month absence due to the coronavirus. But the defeat was a worrying sign for Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus, who also lost the Italian SuperCup final last December to Lazio. Read Also: Ronaldo fails to lift Juve as Napoli claim Coppa Italia Buffon pulled off a last-minute save on Nikola Maksimovic to send the game into penalties with extra-time scrapped to minimise injuries after the coronavirus shutdown. Sarri said he hoped the players would now “put the anger and hunger from this disappointment” into their Serie A challenge with the eight-time reigning champions just one point ahead of second-placed Lazio in the table.
