How huge is Neymar’s salary at PSG before cutting?

Neymar is currently the highest-earning player in PSG as well as the top in the world. But he is facing the possibility of cutting back.

According to France Football, Neymar currently pockets nearly 49 million euros in wages and bonuses a year. This salary is double that of PSG teammates Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani in the 2019-2020 season.

Exactly, the Brazilian star receives 48.9 million euros in salary and contractual bonuses, while Mbappe stands at 21.2 million euros and Cavani 18.4 million euros.

In total, if advertising revenue is added, Neymar earns 95 million euros, ranking third in the world after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to information from StubHub, the former Barca player received about 670,993 euros for each Instagram post. In one year, the amount is estimated to reach more than 28 million euros.

In terms of advertising, most notably Neymar signed a 3-year contract with Altice in February 2018 with the announced amount of 10 million euros per year.

Thus, if PSG makes a 50% pay cut in March, April, May and June 2020 due to the impact of the COVID epidemic, Neymar will lose a significant income.

Specifically, if you only calculate a hard salary of 36.7 million euros per year, equivalent to 3,060,000 euros per month, the Brazilian striker will lose about 6.1 million euros during the said period.

Former Premier League striker: “Lloris looks itchy”

Coach Jose Mourinho suffered the worst series of his career because of two silly mistakes by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the Tottenham match lost to Leipzig in the C1 Cup.

Tottenham lost strongly to RB Leipzig 0-3 in the second leg of the round of C1 Cup and were eliminated in the final with a total score of 0-4. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was the most criticized in this defeat with 2 mistakes leading to Tottenham’s goal.

Hope to reverse the flow of teachers Jose Mourinho quickly became impossible with 2 goals quickly after just 21 minutes in the second leg. Even in the 10th minute, Lloris rushed to the right corner to block Marcel Sabitzer’s not-too-great shot, but finally let the ball slip into his hand and into the net.

11 minutes later, it was Sabitzer who took advantage of Lloris’ mistake to score a 2-0 lead. This time it was a header in the near corner and Lloris even touched but still let the ball slowly roll over the line.

Lloris’s mistake caused Tottenham to score at least 3 goals and keep a clean sheet for the remaining 70 minutes to come from behind. However, they failed to score even one goal and had to accept to leave the game from the eighth round after less than a year to reach the final.

The failure of this face also caused Mourinho to undergo the worst series of his career, not winning 6 consecutive games in all competitions, losing 4 and drawing 2.

On social media, many Tottenham fans have criticized Lloris mercilessly and called on Mourinho to give the opportunity to Paulo Gazzaniga.

Former Tottenham player Marcus Bent was surprised by the poor performance of his former club: “What is going on with Spurs and Lloris?”

Former Premier League champion Chris Sutton even bluntly said: “I’ll say it again …. Lloris’s action looks so itchy.”

FIFA announced plans to postpone the second qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup

On the evening of March 5, FIFA and AFC announced the official proposal of a plan to postpone the second qualifying matches for the upcoming 2022 World Cup in Asia due to the influence of the Covid-19 epidemic.

FIFA’s statement said that FIFA and AFC had met at their headquarters in Zurich (Switzerland) to discuss the situation in Asian football. For FIFA and AFC, the health of individuals participating in matches remains the highest priority, and thus, an official proposal to postpone the upcoming matches in the 2022 World Cup/2021 Asian Cup finals has been shared with relevant member federations.

FIFA and AFC will provide the latest information on this plan in the coming days after consulting with AFC member federations. Another discussion is the 2020 Olympic women’s football play-off between Korea and China, as well as the Asian Futsal Championship in Turkmenistan 2020.

According to FIFA, it will continue to monitor the situation regarding Covid-19 through contact with the World Health Organization (WHO), alliances and member federations. In particular, information on other international matches may be provided by the relevant federation members.

As such, the statement means that FIFA and AFC will be waiting for the meeting with the Western member federations in Malaysia on 7 and 8 of March, before making an official announcement. According to the proposal above, FIFA will postpone the second qualifying matches of the 2022 World Cup in Asia in March and June 10 and 11.

According to Asian media, the above statement has received the support of AFC member federations, of which the possibility of delay is almost certain. Because in the upcoming meeting, the football federation Iran, Iraq, Bahrain, UAE (Middle East countries affected by the Covid-19 epidemic) will agree to the delay. Most recently, the UAE Football Federation has issued a “ban” of fans to the field at all domestic leagues to avoid spreading Covid-19.

According to the schedule, the UAE will welcome Vietnam on June 9 in the last match of Group G. Previously, the teachers and coaches of Park Hang-seo will take guests in Malaysia and meet Indonesia on June 4.

The risk of Liverpool being unable to win the Premier League because of Covid-19

It seems to be a speculation, but according to The Telegraph (UK), this is completely real risk if the British Government issued an order to cancel all sports events to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic. raging throughout Europe.

Currently, in the Premier League season, Liverpool has touched one hand to the championship when unbeaten 27 matches (26 wins, 1 draw), far ahead of the opponent ranked behind Man City to 22 points.

While this season only 11 rounds, and if Liverpool continue to win 4 more games in the next round in March, they soon crowned the championship for the first time in 30 years.

However, it cannot be guaranteed just because the Covid-19 epidemic became more and more violent after the raging in Italy and now spread to many other countries in Europe causing panic everywhere.

The Swiss and French governments have issued orders to cancel all events with a concentration of 1,000 or more people in an effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In addition, football schedules in these countries’ leagues this weekend are in danger of being postponed.

In the UK, the number of people infected with Covid-19 has increased to 19, and is at risk of rapidly increasing if there are still crowded events such as soccer. The organizing committee of the Premier League does not currently have any advice to prevent this disease. However, the Newcastle Club recently issued a ban on forms such as shaking hands to prevent epidemics.

The Telegraph adds, if the situation is still unpredictable, the risk of the British Government issuing an order to cancel all sports events within April 2 and 5 is very likely to occur.

At that time, the Premier League season will be stopped, and canceled, so the whole season can be declared “invalid”. Therefore, Liverpool, even though it is about to win the championship, is not recognized, even the bottom three teams are not relegated as usual.

However, there will also be cases where the review is the result of the 27 rounds that took place to determine if this season is enough or not. But it may not be considered, because except for Liverpool to make a big gap, while other races such as the top 4, the top 6 with competition for the European Cup are not yet finished. Similarly, the race to avoid relegation.

So, there’s going to be huge controversy and it’s not clear where to go if the season is canceled. But in any case, this case would be unprecedented in the history of the Premier League.

The Telegraph also believes that the outbreak of Covid-19 is a huge threat to the health and lives of people worldwide. While there is no effective cure for the vaccine, it is understandable that governments have to find ways to prevent the spread.

Currently, in addition to the European league competitions, many major sporting events of the world such as the 2020 Olympic Games, Euro 2020, F1 race, all stand the risk of being canceled or postponed. In Asia, the national leagues in China, South Korea and Japan have been postponed, similar to the matches in the AFC Champions League.

The dark art of Ramos

The Andalusian has been one of the best center-backs in the world for more than a decade. This is showing no signs of stopping, with what he has shown this season. Ramos scored, Ramos defended, Ramos did everything to stop the opponent.

A few days before breaking Messi‘s record, Ramos angrily cursed his junior Martin Odegaard in Real Madrid’s defeat to Real Sociedad. “You bastard”, Ramos shouted at Odegaard. The center-back is always very real, and doesn’t lie on the pitch

“In football, there is no room for brotherhood”, Ramos once said in a documentary produced last year. Last season, Real fell into a disaster with total defeats in La Liga and the Champions League, Ramos talked about the embarrassment that he could not take his children to the park.

Football is always a story about results, about winning. And Ramos will do everything to get there. Even if it made him trade. Ramos has conquered every player’s most important collective title. He won the World Cup, then won the Euro twice. He won the Champions League 4 times and countless other titles. However, Ramos will never be able to penetrate the noble individual titles, like the Golden Ball or The Best.

For a simple reason, in the era when football always worshiped beautiful superheroes like Messi or Ronaldo, people did not like to honor butchers like Ramos. Whether he is the best center back, the most stable football world in years.

Even Ramos’s son doesn’t want to be a footballer like his father. In the documentary film about Ramos’s life, it is seen that his son, Sergio Jr, sees Luka Modric as an idol. No child dreamed of being the 1 position villain in superhero movies.

But life is not like movies. There is not always a clear black-and-white boundary, which sometimes appears gray.

Ramos is the perfect symbol for that gray.

Sad part of La Masia under Bartomeu

In the Champions League semi-final of the 2012/13 season, Barca was crushed by Bayern Munich with a total score of 0-7 after 2 matches. A year later, at the 2014 World Cup, the defending champions were eliminated from the group stage. These failures show that tiki-taka shows signs of being caught.

Then, under coach Luis Enrique, Barca changed with quality additions including Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Neymar. Thanks to that, they stepped up to the top of Europe in the 2014/15 season.

Things have gotten worse since 2016, when Josep Maria Bartomeu became the new president of Barca. Unlike his predecessors Joan Laporta or Sandro Rossell, Bartomeu prefers to bring in blockbuster deals.

In the past 4 seasons, Barca has lost nearly 320 million euros on the transfer market. In return, Bartomeu earned Barca lucrative contracts from Nike or Qatar.

Blockbusters like Philippe Coutinho, Malcom, Ousmane Dembele were not very successful. Meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann or Frenkie de Jong need more time to assert. In the opposite direction, many promising talents of La Masia such as Gerard, Deulofeu, Cristian Tello … are forced to leave. It is difficult for them to compete with the stars who have become famous in other teams.

With this policy, Mr. Bartomeu was criticized by former president Laporta: “Mr. Bartomeu is under Qatari control and will destroy La Masia training furnace”. Recently, Bartomeu also made Barca internal waves because of problems outside the pitch. Pique even called the incumbent president “a puppet”.

In 2018, for the first time in 16 years, Barca came out without any mature players from the academy or any indigenous people. That squad includes Ter Stegen, Semedo, Yerry Mina, Thomas Vermaelen, Lucas Digne, Paulinho, Andre Gomes, Denis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele, Paco Alcacer and Coutinho. At this time, the percentage of La Masia players in the first team Barca is only 36%.

Premier League and winter break like no one

After a few decades of debate, after all, one of the most respectable traditions in the football homeland has (probably will) collapse. For the first time in history, Premier League teams will have a two-week winter break, in February!

England is the birthplace of football. As everyone knows, one of the most unique features of the football homeland is that the ball never stops rolling, even during the most important holidays of the year (the opposite is the opposite: the bigger the ceremony, the more football must be played, to entertain the public).

Now, when the English football executives have to surrender to the grievances of the insiders, having issued a winter break to give players a chance to rest, the first strange thing is the Premier League winter break in the February (most other tournaments winter break during the Christmas – New Year). But that is not the only difference.

Extremely unique, the English football operator has devised a solution for the players, the team is winter break, but in the end, the Premier League still not stop! In principle, there will be a Premier League round within 2 weeks. The matches of that round will last for 14 days, instead of all taking a break. The original idea was to draw lots for 8 teams to play (12 teams get a break) in one weekend, then reverse (8 teams take a break) in the next weekend.

Of course, when applied in practice, the rest time of the teams will not be the same. On the one hand, people take advantage of the break time to solve the postponed matches, the matches must be rematched in the FA Cup. On the other hand, they still have to give priority to the television schedule. In short, people who take a lot of rest or who don’t get a lot of rest must accept it by chance.

Having to play against Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth round on February 5, Southampton will be the team with the least winter break: 9 days. In contrast, Chelsea and M.U are the two teams with the most winter break: 15 days. Wolverhampton has 12 winter holidays. But judging from this, this team can only take a winter break after having played 40 games since the beginning of the season (in all competitions). Of the five players who have played more than 3,000 minutes in the UK this season, four are Wolverhampton: Conor Coady, Joao Moutinho, Rui Patricio, Leander Dendoncker (the other is Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk).

Arsene Wenger refused to Bayern Munich

The former Arsenal coach claimed he had no intention of taking over the coaching chair at Bayern Munich.

Arsene Wenger has revealed he will not be Bayern Munich’s coach and confirmed that he was approached by the defending champion of the Bundesliga last week.

Since Bayern Munich sacked coach Niko Kovac shortly after the 1-5 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this month, the former Arsenal boss has always been told the media will move to the Allianz Arena not only for his expertise but also for his good performance. However, to make things clearer, the 70-year-old strategist announced he would not take over “Gray Lobster” through Goal: “I am not involved in the work there. First of all, I have never been I was also approached but decided not to go to Bayern Munich”.

There are many doubts that he turned down the job because he chose a more suitable place to coach, but Wenger answered directly: “No, not necessarily so”.

Interim coach Hans-Dieter Flick led Bayern to victory against Olympiacos in the Champions League group stage and specifically helped the Bavarians crush Borussia Dortmund 4-0 over the weekend to return to the top 3 in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich is third with 21 points, 4 points behind Monchengladbach and the championship race for them is still intact.

In a statement, Mr. Wenger also wanted to return to the training: “Coaching is my whole life, everyone who does this feels the same way. We miss the football atmosphere. I’ve lived with me till now: the happiness after the victory, the pre-match anxiety, the emotions. I did this at 33 until I was 69 without a season off. It is such a great year”.

Since leaving the Emirates Stadium, Mr. Wenger has compensated for his stressful time with the days of enjoying life, resting with his family. Perhaps he will not return to football.
