Messi was warned about the recovery time when returning to play

Physical experts have warned Messi about the recovery time needed when returning to play after a long break from the COVID-19 epidemic.

Lionel Messi and his La Liga colleagues took a break from playing for more than 10 days after the organizers decided to postpone the tournament to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Currently, all have to isolate themselves at home and train separately to maintain fitness.

Even so, it took Messi and his colleagues a few weeks to regain their best form after a long break from COVID-19. That is the warning of the leading physical experts in La Liga. The solution, in this case, is to organize friendly matches for 10 days, or 2 weeks before the Spanish championship returns.

Paulino Granero, CSKA Moscow’s physical coach and the Russian team, said: “I have one thing that is very clear, Messi is the best player and plays a very different football than everyone. it will take several weeks to return to being the usual Messi.”

“You asked why that is? Simply put, Messi’s special technical moves can only be done when he is in the best condition because these are not the basic techniques that other players often use.

According to coach Granero, an important factor determining the quality of a team is the link between the players. Therefore, if a team wants to regain good form after at least 15 days of rest, they need to go through at least 1 match to regain the feeling of playing football and help the body adapt to the intensity of movement like always.

Physical coach Dani Pastor of Real Mallorca also added: “There are situations of dispute on the pitch that the players will not be in the gym, home garden or parking lot. When the game is over, the players will lack the competition to keep up their normal form.”

Ronaldinho in prison for the drug-related crime and money laundering?

Ronaldinho in prison for the drug-related crime and money laundering?

Ronaldinho was accused by the Paraguay Prosecutor’s Office of being involved in a drug trafficking and money laundering criminal organization.

Ronaldinho was detained last week on charges of using a fake passport to enter Paraguay. But the latest disclosure by Reuters shows that the incident is much more serious.

The Paraguayan prosecutor’s office is investigating allegations that Ronaldinho was involved in a money-laundering criminal organization that “enchanted” about $ 400 million in “dirty money” in the country over the past five years. In particular, the focal point is a Brazilian businesswoman, Dalia Lopez, a “Strong Donor” who has very good relations with Brazilian and Paraguayan politicians.

Dalia is the founder of the Fraternidad Angelical Charity Foundation and invites Ronaldinho to Paraguay to attend an event of the foundation. The paparazzi captured the scene of the Ronaldinho brothers accompanying their fellow businesswoman when the three landed at Silvio Pettirossi International Airport on March 4.

Prosecutor Osmar Legal, who led the investigation, said: “Dalia may be involved in a money-laundering plan and this means that we must investigate all those who are involved with her, including Ronaldinho. That is why we insist on detaining Ronaldinho for investigation”.

Their main hypothesis was that they had created fake documents to enter Paraguay and eventually they would be used for some commercial projects or illegal investments. In it, Ronaldinho may appear as an ambassador in Dalia’s charity project.

Currently, the investigating agency is checking the phone of the Ronaldinho brothers in hopes of finding evidence to clear up the case. Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto de Assis had previously offered $ 1.6 million in bail to escape custody, but were not approved.

Not only was she accused of money laundering, but Dalia businesswoman was also suspected of tax evasion and having done business with drug criminals. Paraguayan police have issued orders to pursue Dalia and called on Brazilian authorities to assist with the investigation of this, particularly serious case. In addition to the Ronaldinho brothers, 14 others have been summoned, or are being detained for involvement in the case.

The mask of Real Madrid is removed (Part 2)

Before Levante, “Los Blancos” competed, but no player knew how to put the ball into the net. Hazard or Benzema had a chance, but the final phase was not smooth. Real also constantly cornered Levante with 35 balls hanging into the penalty area, but the sharp points could not take advantage of the success.

Football is not a game based on losing more than numbers. The outcome of a match based heavily on moments. For Real, dropping points against Celta Vigo and Levante shows they are unstable at the most important moments of the season.

Holding the gold but letting the gold fall, Real should blame himself after the defeat against Levante. They missed the opportunity to maintain a distance with Barca, the team once fell into crisis with internal conflicts. When entering the El Clasico game next week, La Liga’s order was repeated, with Barca above Real.

Real take anything against turbulent week?

Wearing a sorrowful face, Zidane replied to Movistar: “Hazard has an ankle injury. We will conduct more tests, but his situation looks bad”. Before entering the El Clasico match, Real will face Man City in the Champions League with full of instability.

Hazard is not sure how to play because of injury. Not only that, Benzema has shown signs of losing form. Since the beginning of 2020, the French striker has only scored 2 goals in the last 9 matches. Looking at the French striker who was deviated in the processing phase, one saw a lack of confidence in the 32-year-old star.

Losing Hazard, “Zizou” and Vinicius instead. As for Benzema, who is in decline, the French legend could not find any suitable card. It is also the appearance of Real when playing Man City at the Bernabeu on February 27. A team with crippled attack and lack of killer instinct in the penalty area.

According to Forbes writer Jason Pettigrov, Real is also facing a physical problem from the 70th minute. They are said to be the most vulnerable at the moment, because the players are tired due to their age. The moment Jose Luis Morales of Levante hit the net with Thibaut Courtois, they all saw how exhausted Luka Modric was in the accompanying phase.

Real are wearing a pair of unsteady feet into the week of judgment for fate. Their big and unique fulcrum lies in the defense. All expected Courtois to have a brilliant match and not make the same mistake as before Levante.

The roles of Sergio Ramos and Casemiro are also important. They must command the defense system in front of the fast and virtual way of Man City. Once a solid defensive wall is created, “Los Blancos” can pray for the miracle to happen. It could be a header from Ramos, or a masterpiece from Casemiro.

For Real, their masks were removed, and revealed their true form. However, the prestige of a giant in the Champions League, and the Bernabeu fulcrum can become a factor for “Los Blancos” to cling to Man City.

4 After a series of daydreaming dreams of overthrowing Barca, Real Madrid returned to the ground with its old form. It is an unstable team.

The first warnings soon appeared with the representative of Madrid after the shock of being removed from the Cope del Rey before Real Sociedad. That defeat originated in a series of matches that could make “Los Blancos” face another season of throwing away. Everything collapsed too quickly with Zinedine Zidane and his students.

In Ciudad de Valencia, the Real’s mask is removed. They still cannot live without Cristiano Ronaldo. “Los Blancos” released 19 shots on goal of Levante, of which 7 were hit but no goal was scored. The Royal team is missing a killer instinct.

This story is nothing new. Without Ronaldo, the “White Vulture” lost a superb machine of goals. Karim Benzema or Eden Hazard, although still or can not replace the Portuguese superstar, the author of many goals throughout nearly a decade of kicking for the Bernabeu team.

On the day Real collapsed, from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, Ronaldo fired regularly at the age of 35. He had 25 goals in 30 matches in all competitions. The difference between CR7 and Benzema, Hazard or any of Real’s players lies in stability, an important factor to help a team step up the La Liga throne.

Marca journalist Jose Felix Diaz described, “Real has not found a cure for depression for more than a year and a half”. Even when Benzema, who was expected to fill the void left by Ronaldo, worked hard, his level could not be compared to the famous number 7 at a time.

“Real do not be too happy when Benzema scored continuously because the stability of Karim always leaves doubts”, former AS Editor-in-chief Alfredo Relano once predicted. That is absolutely right! Stability has never been on the strong list of Benzema, who has played four consecutive games.

According to AS journalist Tomas Roncero, Real is living in the nostalgia of Ronaldo. Number 7 always knows how to make a difference with goals. As for Real now, Benzema is fluttering, Luka Jovic has not shown the value of 60 million euros. Rodrygo is still very young, while Hazard needs more time to adapt.

Indonesia was officially awarded FIFA to host the U.20 World Cup in 2021

The football atmosphere in Southeast Asia will be more bustling in the next 2 years when FIFA has officially announced to choose Indonesia as the host of the U.20 World Cup finals in 2021, although the country still has many worries in stopping violence in football.

According to the announcement on the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) website, the decision to host the World Cup finals in 2021 was announced directly by FIFA President Gianni Infantino at the FIFA Council meeting in Shanghai (China) October 24. Earlier, in the shortlist in the race to host the event, Indonesia faced Brazil and Peru. However, PSSI’s bid presentation was well received by FIFA despite Indonesia’s concerns about violence in football.

The appreciation also goes to the relevant state agencies and local leaders who are committed to helping PSSI realize the dream of hosting the U.20 World Cup in 2021”, PSSI Secretary-General Ratu Tisha Destria was happy to share.

In fact, in a bid to run the event, Indonesia’s only weakness was the issue of football violence and internal power disputes at PSSI over the years. Latest, in the second round of Group G qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, losing to Malaysia 2-3 at Bung Karno at 5.9, Indonesia was faced with a severe penalty. Meanwhile, in every other aspect, the country of ten thousand islands meets very good criteria for hosting a World Cup, especially when the country successfully organized ASIAD last year.

The victory of Indonesia is also a push for the ambition of Southeast Asian countries towards the race to host the 2034 World Cup, including Vietnam. Earlier, a number of Southeast Asian countries also planned to hold a meeting to provide feasible options for bids to officially race to host the biggest football festival on the planet.

We hope to win in the next round This start is a goal that I have prepared, now we hope to continue like that. I felt a strong emotion and my father reassured me”.

FA Cup: M.U have to play again

FA Cup: M.U have to play again

In the third round of the FA Cup, the attack of the Manchester United club (M.U) failed to make a direct shot on the opponent’s goal.

This is the first time since January 1.2015, “Red Devils” again fell into a state of harmless attack in a match in the domestic league. 5 years ago, against Southampton in the Premier League, M.U also fell into the same situation.

With this draw, M.U will have to play against Wolverhampton at Old Trafford next time, and cause both teams to face a dense schedule.

In January, MU still had 2 semifinals for the English League Cup with Man City, while Wolverhampton added this match to make them even more tired after having played 36 matches because they also attended Europa qualifying matches.

Coach Solskjaer launched a strong squad for M.U in attack with young star Mason Greenwood with the support of Daniel James and Juan Mata. However, it was not until the second half from the 70th minute when Marcus Rashford added to strengthen the attack of the “Red Devils” to sharpen.

In which Rashford missed a chance to score when he entered the field, but unfortunately the shot hit captain Wolverhampton Conor Coady put the ball to the crossbar. Wolverhampton then responded with a shot from Raul Jimenez’s crossbar.

These are considered the two most worthwhile situations in the meeting between Wolverhampton and M.U, while the rest of the visitors, although playing a bit more, do not make goalkeeper John Ruddy (Wolverhampton) to show off.

Although the draw was quite disappointing, coach Solskjaer was pleased to play again because he thought that Wolverhampton was really a very difficult opponent when playing at home. Wolverhampton’s Nuno Espirito Santo was regretful because the home team missed many opportunities to score to end the match and had to play it again. While M.U had to play again, Man City easily entered the fourth round with a 4-1 victory over the lower team Port Vale; Leicester City also went ahead when they won Wigan Athletic 2-0. Similarly, Bournemouth won Luton Town 4-0.
