Sam Allardyce: le patron de Leeds dit qu’il est “là-haut” avec Jurgen Klopp et Pep Guardiola

Le nouveau manager de Leeds United, Sam Allardyce, a déclaré qu’il était “là-haut” avec n’importe quel manager de la Premier League, y compris le patron de Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, et Jurgen Klopp de Liverpool.

Allardyce, qui a remplacé Javi Graciaa déclaré qu’il peut sembler “vieillot” mais qu’il est l’égal de n’importe quel manager de la ligue.

“J’ai 68 ans mais il n’y a personne devant moi en termes de football. Pas Pep, pas Klopp, pas [Mikel] Arteta”, a-t-il déclaré.

La tâche d’Allardyce est de maintenir Leeds en Premier League.

Avec quatre matchs à jouer, ils ne sont qu’en dehors des places de relégation à la différence de buts et font face à une confrontation décourageante avec des matches contre Manchester City, Newcastle United, West Ham et Tottenham à venir.

À propos du moment de sa nomination, Allardyce a déclaré: “Leeds sait où je suis mais cela ne s’est pas concrétisé jusqu’à présent.

“Le club de football choisit la voie qu’il veut suivre et beaucoup trop de gens pensent que je suis vieux et archaïque, ce qui est si loin de la vérité.

“Tout est là avec moi. Ils font ce qu’ils font, je fais ce que je fais. En termes de connaissances et de profondeur de connaissances, je suis là-haut avec eux. Je ne dis pas que je suis meilleur qu’eux, mais certainement aussi bons soient-ils.”

L’équipe d’Allardyce se déplace pour affronter Guardiola’s City lors de son premier match en charge samedi.

L’ancien patron d’Everton et de l’Angleterre a déclaré que son mandat à Leeds, menacé de relégation, pourrait être son “plus grand défi” en matière de gestion en raison des rencontres.

“Nous commençons par un match facile samedi”, a déclaré Allardyce. “Cela ne peut pas être plus facile que Manchester City, n’est-ce pas?

“C’est un grand défi que les joueurs doivent relever, que je dois relever, et nous irons à Manchester City et ferons de notre mieux pour obtenir un résultat.

“C’est probablement mon plus grand défi en raison de la brièveté des matchs qui restent et de la difficulté de ces matches.”

Euro 2024: James McFadden says Scotland deserve shot at grandstand finish

Published

Spread the love

We were at the last Euros at a largely empty Hampden, and we see Scotland play there all the time. This is different.

The amount of Scotland fans in Germany is remarkable, the noise they’re generating in the stadiums is off the scale. Both renditions of Flower of Scotland have been unbelievable.

From a football point of view, there have been echoes of three years ago, in terms of results.

We lost the first game then, before getting a bit of a heroic draw at Wembley. Then we know what happened against Croatia.

You’re supposed to learn your lessons from past mistakes.

I don’t think we underestimated Croatia three years ago, but they were very good.

I don’t think this Hungary team are as good as that Croatian side, but we need to prepare believing they’re just as good as Switzerland.

We’ve given ourselves a chance of four points and getting out of a group for the first time. It’s not guaranteed, but if we got the win and still couldn’t go through, it’s just typical Scotland isn’t it?

Hungary played well against Germany, but if we turn up we can win this game. All we want is to go and have some belief, and now there’s plenty of it.

James McFadden was speaking to BBC Sport Scotland’s Scott Mullen.

Euro 2024: Why England should fear Rasmus Hojlund and Denmark

Published

on

Spread the love

Denmark are about more than just Hojlund though.

Christian Eriksen, referred to as “the father” by club team-mate Hojlund, stole headlines on Sunday as he marked his return to the Euros, three years after suffering a cardiac arrest during a game against Finland, with Denmark’s opening goal of the tournament.

He put in a man-of-the-match performance, pulling the strings in midfield during a dominant first half, before Slovenia were able to claw their way back into the game.

And despite the match ending in a draw, Frank believes Denmark showed they have enough quality to trouble England.

“It’s clear we should have won that game but with a point we can still decide [progression] ourselves,” said Frank.

“I’m convinced that Denmark will fancy their chances against England despite them being one of the massive favourites to win the tournament.

“This is football and anything can happen.”

Hojlund and Eriksen are the star names, while Sporting midfielder Morten Hjulmand has been linked with numerous clubs.

But who is not spoken about enough for Denmark?

There is one man who Frank thinks could be key in stopping “the best offensive players in the tournament” from England.

“[Barcelona defender] Andreas Christensen. On his day, he is one of the best centre-backs in the world,” added Frank.

“His way of anticipating situations, his technique, his composure, he is quite unique.”

Euro 2024: Should England start Phil Foden against Denmark?

Published

on

Spread the love

Gareth Southgate’s England squad selection for Euro 2024 received widespread approval for being bold and courageous – and yet he is still revisiting a debate stretching back two decades.

It is a conversation that returns to the era when England’s then-manager Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to cash in what looked like a golden ticket stamped with the names of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Paul Scholes.

Eriksson’s star-struck approach led him to pack his team with England’s best individuals rather than shape a fully-functioning balanced side, a forced and flawed strategy that left the so-called ‘Golden Generation’ unfulfilled at international level while sweeping up major prizes regularly with their clubs.

It ended with a disillusioned Scholes, wasted on the left flank at Euro 2004 in Portugal, calling time early on his international career, a world-class operator with Manchester United marginalised by England.

And now there are hints of old arguments being raked over once more as England continue their Euro 2024 campaign against Denmark in Frankfurt on Thursday.

Southgate is not at the Eriksson stage yet – indeed he may never reach it – but he will be aware of the growing volume of the discussion around Manchester City’s Phil Foden, England’s young superstar Jude Bellingham and the make-up of his midfield elsewhere.

All the indications backstage in Frankfurt suggested Southgate will keep faith with Foden in the mainly left flank role he filled against Serbia, with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold alongside Declan Rice in the centre.

It has not silenced the argument and the noise increased after Foden – the Footballer of the Year with 27 league goals as Manchester City secured a fourth successive title – cut a peripheral figure in England’s opening Euro 2024 win against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen, while Bellingham was the dominant personality in all aspects, scoring the decisive goal.

Copa America 2024: Messi, Vinicius Jr, Bielsa, Brazil, Argentina, USA

Published

Spread the love

South America’s continental championship will be played in the United States.

And six of the 16 teams are from the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf).

It was also the same for the special edition 2016 Copa America Centenario – but this is the first regular staging of the tournament to be played outside of the continent.

Many of the host cities are in southern states such as California, Texas and Florida – but there are stadia further north too including in New Jersey.

The tournament is being seen as preparation for the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted by the United States – along with Canada and Mexico.

The US, Mexico, Jamaica, Canada, Costa Rica and Panama will be the six North and Central American countries joining all 10 South American nations to compete.

US boss Gregg Berhalter is under big pressure, with some fans calling for him to go following a 5-1 warm-up defeat by Colombia.

“I don’t think I’m the right person to answer that question,” he said when asked about his future.

“But what I would say is that we do see this as a building block. We see this group as a talented group that’s able to do good things, and we want to use Copa America to show that we’re focused on going as far as we can.”

Most Copas since 1993 have had 12 countries, including two guests – with Japan and Qatar having played in past editions – but the last one in 2021 just had the 10 South American nations.
