Eintract Full of Surprises

Eintracht Frankfurt has pulled off quite a few upsets in their current Europa League campaign. Teams like Internazionale, Benfica etc. were all considered to be stronger in comparison and still they managed to get past them all. It has a lot to do with the tactical astuteness of their head coach, Adi Hutter.

Now Frankfurt is up against Chelsea in the Round of 4, another opponent which if compared man to man on paper will turn out to be far stronger. But the Frankfurt supporters, given what they have seen from the Eagles so far, they would be expecting them to topple Chelsea as well. (more…)

Arjen Robben hoping to feature for Bayern Munich before parting ways

Netherlands international Arjen Robben has said that he is hopeful of featuring for Bayern Munich during the final stage of the campaign. The Dutchman has been sidelined for the past five months with a recurring calf problem, but he has returned to first-team training ahead of the closing stages of the season.

Speaking in a press conference, Robben remained optimistic of playing some role for the club during the remaining weeks before pursuing a fresh challenge elsewhere, he said: "I'll be happy if I can stay with the team for another one or two weeks and get a few minutes under my belt in games as well. That would be wonderful. So many people have said to me that they want to see me on the pitch one more time. Obviously that's also what I want more than anything.

SOUNESS: UNITED ARE IN TROUBLE

Graeme Souness reckons that it is not possible for someone to come with a magic stick and turn the current situation of Manchester United upside down in a jiffy. Although people have big expectations with the boss Ole, he can’t provide solution immediately because the kind of situation the Red Devils find themselves in right now, it’s because of their poor strategy in terms of the signings that they have made in the last few years and now to turn it around from here, it’s going to take them several seasons and that too if they are smart enough, unless of course they have some outstanding young talent coming through the ranks from the B team who can straightaway meet the demands of the first team.

According to Souness, as he says this, some people would believe that he is saying this only because he is an ex Liverpool player and he can’t ever think positively for United but that’s not the case at all. He might be an ex Liverpool player but first and foremost, he is someone who is a keen Football watcher and is closely associated with this sport and he can assess the situation of Football teams and he knows that the United manager has his task cut out.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Cascarino stressed that Hazard remains hugely influential to the proceedings at the west London side and they may find it difficult to replace him, should he make way from the club, he told: “It will be as big a loss to a team as Thierry Henry was when he left to go to Barcelona. He [Hazard] is up there with the very best. (more…)

Romelu Lukaku picks his Manchester United player of the season to date

Belgium international Romelu Lukaku has said that Luke Shaw has been Manchester United’s player of the season so far after putting in a string of impressive performances.

However, the left-back managed to redeem himself after going through a personal training session in Dubai in pre-season and he has since commanded a regular role across all competitions. Speaking to MUTV, Lukaku admitted that he has been impressed with the upturn in form from Shaw during the ongoing campaign and he deserves the chance to compete for the club’s Player of the Year award this term.
