The Neymar-Cavani clash: We Saw it Coming... YES we did !

It's not a secret that when it comes to the amazing quality of players  Paris Saint-Germain have, no one can compete with that. Having Neymar-Cavani and Mbappe up front is each and every team biggest nightmare. The Pretty much amazing transfer window PSG had this summer left everyone speechless.. Money can do wonders dear readers.. Or does it ? to answer this question and any other question we need to take a fast and efficient look at the players PSG have now, Shall we ?

Supported by the very, very rich Nasser Al-Khelaïfi who bought the club in 2011, the Paris side have assembled a squad filled with excellent players. Over time, this technically-strong side has been molded into a strong possession-based system and year after year, the team wintnessed a strong addition to what is already a powerful squad.

With the likes of the highly-intelligent Thiago SilvaMarco Verratti, Rabiot and others, PSG already has the best of each country But the attacking force remain the Outstanding feature of the team. PSG possess an array of strong attackers both on the wings and centrally. Throughout the majority of matches. The team's Frontline is something coming straight out of fairy tales, Neymar (€222 million), Kylian Mbappé (€180 million), and Edinson Cavani (€63 million). In France PSG should be so outrageously overpowering in every area of the pitch.

PSG did demonstrate in this new season that their attackers are eager to work, to score, to entertain and to probably bring Paris it's firs champions league trophy.

Unselfish players.. or ARE THEY?

Football players are human beings after all, and someone once said that "To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve" and let's be honest, coming to PSG for it's "history" and "glorious" past was, is, and never will be anyone's motive to sign for the parisian side. Because, let be honest once again, PSG was built on Money, and can never fit in with the rest of the squad where football was made, the likes of Milan, Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid are up there, and the newcomers are just the makers of what we call now, foot-business.

Back to our Cookie, Players who signs for PSG are there for their own sake, for their own glory before anyone's. It's True, you know it and we know it and it's time we face the truth. Neymar in addition to the BIG BIG money he recieved when he signed for Paris, he was also in it for the glory he never got to experience in the shadow of the one and only Lionel Messi.

Neymar has already proved on a several occasions that he's the hardest of cookies, he wants the best for himself and doesn't really care how that can affect others. And truth be told, I don't see how can PSG fans not see that Neymar is in Paris to be the Star, THE ONLY STAR. And would not, in any case, accept that someone could take that place out of his hands, you hear that ? Edison Cavani ?

A shock.. But not to everyone ! 

Now, dear readers, I would hate to play the "i know it all" character right away, but that Neymar-Cavani thing you just saw up there ? you see it ? Yeah I saw that Coming MILES AWAY. How can you not ? if you've been a close follower to Neymar on and off the pitch you will SURE notice that the dude is as selfish as one can be and that he is in Paris to demonstrate that, wide and clear.

Cavani was there way before Neymar and he was sort of "the star of the team" but in Neymar's head that's is up for a major change once he steps on the Parc des princes ground.

However, Neymar trying to snatch penalty duties off of his PSG colleague is sure a first of so many other Arrogant things Neymar will enjoy doing during his PSG time. Cavani has been the established penalty-taker for Paris since the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic And He had succeeded with them ALL. It was NEVER Neymar’s place to impose a change and insist to take the penalty from Neymar.

EUUKH, Taking it to social media, of course ! 

Really Neymar, Really ? I mean come on, no one can argue about how good of a player you are, but that off pitch brain of yours really need some work. Neymar has reportedly unfollowed Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Edinson Cavani on both Instagram and twitter after their "clash" and also, and god I hope this is not true, But Media are suggesting that the player also asked the PSG president to sell Cavani. GOD !



PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN, now it's time for you to take the blame. WHAT DID YOU REALLY EXPECT HEIN? a minimum knowledge of football would tell that teams MAKE the stars and not the other way around. buying star never and WILL NEVER buy you glory. So many Big names on the Team sheet is good, SO Many big names on the pitch never is. We hope you learn from your mistakes, the sooner the better, for your own good.

Keita, Salah goals help Liverpool beat Salzburg to top UCL Group E

Liverpool beat Salzburg 2-0 to advance as Group E winners, with Salah adding to midfielder Naby Keita’s opener after rounding opposition goalkeeper Cican Stankovic.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp praised Mohamed Salah for showing self-belief after he spurned several straightforward chances before scoring from a tight angle to help the defending champions reach the Champions League knockout stages on Tuesday.

Liverpool beat Salzburg 2-0 to advance as Group E winners, with Salah adding to midfielder Naby Keita’s opener after rounding opposition goalkeeper Cican Stankovic.

“He played really well but didn’t score in the situations we expect him usually to score, but staying on track and making such a decisive and very difficult finish, that probably says much more about him than all of the other goals he has scored,” said Klopp.

“Staying concentrated, belief in the next moment, it was brilliant. A very, very difficult goal but a sensational finish.”

Salah’s goal was his 11th for Liverpool this season and took him to 20 Champions League goals for the club.

Liverpool next host basement-side Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.

How Anthony Joshua reclaimed his titles in 'Clash On The Dunes' - Report

“It was his (Joshua’s) night, man,” said Ruiz as his six-month reign ended in the 15,000 seat arena on the outskirts of the capital Riyadh.

Britain’s Anthony Joshua beat Andy Ruiz Jr on a unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia on Sunday to seize back the heavyweight world championship belts he lost to his Mexican-American opponent in a shock upset last June.

The ‘Clash on the Dunes’ in Diriyah was for the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles and Joshua set the pace from the start with a measured masterclass that showed he had learned from the nightmare of New York.

The judges scored the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 to the 30-year-old Briton.

“It was his night, man,” said Ruiz as his six-month reign ended in the 15,000 seat arena on the outskirts of the capital Riyadh.

The decision to take the fight to Saudi Arabia had been criticised by human rights campaigners but Joshua complimented the hosts and welcomed Ruiz’s suggestion that there should be a third encounter.

“If you heard, we’re going to do it a third,” said the champion.

Ruiz had stopped the previously undefeated Briton in the seventh round at Madison Square Garden but there was to be no second bolt of lightning from the man in the golden gloves and shorts.

He suffered a nasty gash over his left eye early on, with Joshua also bloodied on the brow in the second round to keep the cornermen busy to the end.

As the fight went into the second half, Ruiz was looking frustrated and was warned for illegal blows.

The eighth was more promising, with Joshua momentarily appearing vulnerable, but the Briton took back control and by round 11 had a spring in his step, looking fresh and nimble on his feet while using his height advantage to good effect.

Ruiz knew he needed a knockout but it never came.

Joshua, now with a record of 23 wins and one defeat, had described that June defeat — to a flabby-looking opponent drafted in as a late replacement — as no more than a “minor setback”.

While he made light of it again in victory, he was clearly relieved. “Man, the first time was so nice, I had to do it twice,” he told the crowd.

“I’m used to knocking guys out but last time I realised ‘hang on a minute, I hurt the man and I got caught coming in’. I gave the man his credit. I said to myself I’m going to correct myself and come again.”

Another loss in the early hours of Sunday would have put the 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion’s career on the line, with some saying after the last fight that he was finished.


Joshua had shown with his preparations, however, that he meant business — stepping into the ring lighter than ever and more than three stones less than Ruiz who had weighed in considerably heavier than in their first showdown.

The contrast between the two men was a talking point before the fight, with one British boxing writer noting that while Joshua sported a six-pack, his opponent appeared to have consumed one.

Ruiz, embraced by Joshua afterwards, said he would do it differently next time. “I think I didn’t prepare it how I should have. I gained too much weight but I don’t want to give no excuses. He won, he boxed me around,” he said.

“If we do the third, I’m going to get in the best shape of my life.” On the undercard, American Michael Hunter and Russian veteran Alexander Povetkin fought to a draw in their WBA heavyweight eliminator.

British heavyweight Dillian ‘The Body Snatcher’ Whyte beat Poland’s former world title challenger Mariusz Wach on a unanimous points decision.

“I’ve been through hell these last couple of months, but we’re here and back,” said the 31-year-old Whyte who was provisionally suspended in July over an irregular urine supply but cleared by the UK Anti-Doping agency on Friday.


London now Paris: Rwanda signs tourism promotion deal with PSG

Under the deal, PSG will promote Rwandan products, while messages promoting Rwanda will be displayed on its women’s team kit and in the club’s stadium.

Rwanda signed a deal on Wednesday with French soccer club Paris St Germain to promote tourism in the east African nation, its second such agreement since last year.

“We invest part of our tourism revenues in strategic collaborations such as the one with Paris St Germain because we understand the positive effect they have on the overall perception of the country globally,” the Rwanda Development Board’s chief executive, Clare Akamanzi, said in a statement after the signing.

Akamanzi did not say how much Rwanda would pay for the deal. A source close to the French club said it was worth between 8 and 10 million euros.

Under the deal, PSG will promote Rwandan products, while messages promoting Rwanda will be displayed on its women’s team kit and in the club’s stadium.

PSG said on Twitter that it had signed a deal “inviting the world to participate in the remarkable transformation of Rwanda”.

Last May, Rwanda signed a sponsorship and tourism promotion deal with the English soccer club Arsenal.

Rwanda earned $380 million from tourism in 2018, the central bank said last month, and was forecast to earn $405 million this year. It expects to earn $800 million by 2024, mainly from conferences and high-end tourists who trek with gorillas.


Messi wins 2019 Ballon D'or award, Mane fourth

Big disappointment for Africa as Sadio Mane fails to win the 2019 Ballon D’or. The trophy was awarded to Lionel Messi. It’s the Argentine’s sixth title.

Africa still waiting for the day an African player will win the Ballon D’or award after George Weah’s success in 1995. The 2019 edition was won by Argentine Lionel Messi. Sadio Mané came a distant fourth.

A whole continent was waiting for Sadio Mané or Mohamed Salah to cherish his dream of a second Golden Ball. But Africa’s hopes was dashed once again on Monday when the trophy was awarded to Lionel Messi during a ceremony held at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, France. It was sixth Golden Ball won by the Barcelona striker, who surpassed his rival Cristiano Ronaldo as the player with the most award.

Worse, despite his exceptional season, Senegalese striker Sadio Mané failed to reach the podium while his Egyptian team-mate in Liverpool, Mohamed Salah, finished in fifth place in a highly talked about ranking. The podium was completed by the Dutchman Virgil Van Dijk and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.
