MANCHESTER UNITED TARGETS GERARD PIQUE ?

According to Spanish Sports daily "Sport", English Premier League Club Manchester United is firmly intent in making a bid for FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. The English team managed & Coached by Louis Van Gaal wants to have the services of the Spanish International central defender, & from England the news is that the Club is willing to offer 25M € for the player.


The English paper the 'Daily Star' explains that the 'red devils' look at Pique as an ideal choice in the market because of his past experience at the Club & because the FC Barcelona player has not fully settled into Barça Coach Luis Enrique plans.

The defensive fragility that Manchester United is experiencing this season is the main argument. However, the signing by Manchester United of Gerard Pique is high unlikely at this stage. For starters, the offer price by Man Utd. is too low for FC Barcelona to accept, while the player is firmly embedded in the city & culture of Barcelona (Catalonia region) with his growing family. Said all this, Gerard Pique is a "volatile" personality with frequent "out of the norm" behaviour on & off the field. It may be that one of his peculiar events may encourage him to find a "new place", Manchester United could thus then be his better option.

THE RETURN OF LUIS SUAREZ | FC BARECLONA

The term, "seeing the light at the end of the tunnel", has never been so true for Uruguayan & FC Barcelona forward Luis Suarez. The player ends his 4 month ban from playing football - official games - next Friday. Consequently, the next day Saturday, the first Spanish Football season "Clasico" between Real Madrid & FC Barcelona is scheduled, thus allowing Suarez to be available for Barça Coach Luis Enrique if he decides to use this valuable Football resource.

The player has expressed to media that he is glad that this "personal nightmare" is coming to an end. Luis Suarez even feared for his Football future that perhaps FC Barcelona may have retired their original signing interest after his World Cup "biting incident".

The logic suggests that Suarez start on the bench next Saturday against Real Madrid & only participate perhaps the last part of the game. However, his Coach Luis Enrique may think otherwise  & go into the clash with all the available fire power up front. 

Either way, everyone is looking forward to seeing Suarez back on the Football field, playing in the Spanish Football Liga & watching his goal skills in action. From here we wish Luis Suarez good luck & can say officially, welcome to Spanish Football.

SPAIN LOSES 1 - 2 SERBIA | U-21 EURO | ELIMINATED FROM EURO 2015 & 2016 RIO OLYMPIC GAMES

It was a must winner encounter. Spain had to defeat Serbia today to qualify for the Euro 2015 Championships & the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. The final result was a hard blow for the current U-21 European Champions after losing at home 1 - 2.

Same story as the away match at Serbia that finished 0 - 0, solid Serbian defence that waited patiently as Spain made mistakes under their frustration & impatience. However, this time around luck also abandoned the Spaniards with the first Serbian goal in the 31st min which was a "stupid" own goal from Spanish defender Saul. It was uphill from here as Spain bounced off the effective Serbian defence & grew increasingly frustrated. 

To honour the Spanish U-21 team they never gave up & in the 91st min Sergi Roberto equalized the game. With the euphoria of the moment, Spain went all out for a second goal to attempt to win the encounter while the "knife was hot". They perhaps sinned of being over-zealous & while Spain was attacking Serbia counter-attacked & exploited the spaces in defence to allow Kostic to score the winner in the 93rd min. 

Unfortunate for Spain which will be disappointed after receiving the double blow of Euro 2015 & 2016 Olympic Games elimination. Congratulations to Serbia for their well planned & executed performance, victory & qualification.
