Lampard has showed he can be one of the best managers in the world-Hazard.

Published

on

Eden Hazard believes former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard can become ‘one of the best managers in the world’ after the latter’s impressive start at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian winger moved on from the west London club in the summer to join Real Madrid, just before Lampard took over managerial duties at Chelsea from Maurizio Sarri.

When asked on international duty with Belgium whether he was surprised by Lampard’s impact at Chelsea, Hazard told The Metro: ‘No, not at all.

‘I know Frank as a player, not as a manager, but he’s a great guy. He’s showed already after four months that he can be one of the best managers in the world.

‘The good thing is that they are playing with young players, young English players. For England it’s good, for Chelsea’s it’s good. They are lucky to have young players with quality.’

Chelsea were unable to try and replace Hazard externally due to the transfer ban imposed on the club during the summer transfer window.

However, while it is believed that the ban gave Lampard the freedom to experiment with and integrate younger players, Hazard believes his side could be doing even better if they had been allowed to make a few additions in the summer.

Asked if he thought the ban had been a blessing in disguise, Hazard said: ‘I don’t know. Maybe with two or three more players they would [be] first!

‘When I saw them play it’s nice, they all play together. I still have good friends there. I follow them all the time. They are winning at the moment so I’m just happy for them.’

COVID-19: Akufo-Addo supports football clubs with GHS900K

Published

on

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has authorised the Ministry of Youth and Sports to release an amount of GHS900,000.00 as first tranche of payment to support 18 premier league clubs to offset some of their expenses in this era of COVID-19 pandemic.

Each club is to receive an amount of GHS50,000.

This has become necessary due to the directive by the government to all premier league matches to be played behind closed doors to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“Other clubs such as Division one, National Women’s League, CAF Champion’s League Representative and CAF Confederation Cup Representative will also receive some financial support from the government in due course,” a statement released by the sports ministry stated.

Thomas Partey Resumes Training Ahead Of Tottenham Clash

Published

on

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has refused to rule out the possibility of Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey being involved over the weekend against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspurs.

Partey suffered a thigh injury during Arsenal loss to Aston Villa and has resumed training ahead of the north London derby. Since the injury, the former Atletico Madrid man has missed the last three matches for the Gunners in all competitions but is closing in on a return ahead of Sunday’s tie.

He’s been training separately in the last week or so and we have to scan him again to see how he’s feeling. He’s a player that is so willing, that is pushing us every day and he wants to do it.

At the same time, we have to protect him and make sure that when he gets back in the team, he is ready to do that and to whatever extent of minutes we can use him, so it’s going to be crucial with the moment he starts to train with the team to see how he is feeling and how he is evolving day-to-day.

We don’t know again, he is really pushing every day and he’s trying to get around the doctor and the physios but he hasn’t trained with the team yet so let’s see this week if he can get a session or two and then assess him, we need to scan him again so we can see the extent of the injury and how it’s healed. I know if it’s up to Thomas then he wants to play tomorrow. We have to see medically that he is safe to participate at all.

Thomas Teye Partey is a Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Arsenal and is the vice-captain of the Ghana national team.

Messi slapped with £540 fine for Diego Maradona shirt celebration

Published

on

Lionel Messi has been hit with a £540 fine for his tribute to Diego Maradona after the legend’s death.

The Barcelona superstar started his career at Newell’s Old Boys and unveiled their shirt in tribute to his fellow Argentine – who also played thereafter scoring in Sunday’s 4-0 win against Osasuna.

The goal had striking similarities to a goal scored by Maradona on his Newell’s debut 27 years ago.

He picked up the ball outside of the box, beat two defenders then fired a shot into the far corner of the net.

The celebration forced referee Mateu Lahoz to book Messi for removing his Barca shirt, in line with the Spanish FA’s rules.

It has now been confirmed that the 33-year-old has now been sanctioned.

The forward, who earns over £60m-a-year, should have to cough up a £540 fine.

And Barcelona have also been hit with a fine of £316 over the incident – although they plan to appeal.

The rule which imposes a fine for celebrations like Messi’s is not exclusive to the Spanish league, it is also applied by FIFA.

On FIFA’s official website, it states: “The IFAB, the body responsible for the Laws of the Game, decided to add a detail to Law 12 relating to ‘Fouls and Misconduct’, stating: “A player who removes his jersey after scoring a goalwill be cautioned for unsporting behaviour.”
