Beitrag The affiliates have spoken. I wish
Maurizio Sarri has decided to go down a dangerous road by using a post-match news conference to criticize the attitude and character of his Chelsea players.Memories were suddenly revived of a TV interview that Jose Mourinho gave after a game in December 2015 Cheap Argentina Soccer Jerseys , accusing the Chelsea team of “betraying” him. Mourinho was fired a few days later.Indeed, when the dust finally settles on the result that prompted Sarri’s outburst — the 2-0 loss at Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday — the Italian might do well to look at his own failings instead of heaping the blame on his underperforming players.He is the one playing the world’s best defensive midfielder, N’Golo Kante, out of position.He is the one deploying one of the world’s most lethal wide forwards, Eden Hazard, as a center striker often playing with his back to goal.He is the one not willing to adapt when he sees midfield playmaker Jorginho — the on-field personification of the so-called “Sarri-ball” approach — getting increasingly over-run.And he is the one fielding a defensive system seemingly not suited to the players. In Sarri’s four-man backline is David Luiz, a center back better as a sweeper Soccer Jerseys Wholesale , and Marcos Alonso, a left back much more effective as an attacking wing back.At a time when Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and now Manchester United are playing exciting and attacking football, Chelsea is playing a ponderous, predictable and easy-to-defend style reminiscent of United under Louis van Gaal. Chelsea has scored just eight goals in its last nine games.Worryingly for Chelsea and its fans, Sarri doesn’t seem willing to change.It was after a comprehensive loss to Arsenal in September 2016 that Antonio Conte ripped up Chelsea’s lineup and formation Cheap Australia Soccer Shirts , with a switch from 4-3-3 to 3-5-2 sparking a 13-match winning run in the Premier League that took the London club to the title.Sarri is wedded to a 4-3-3 formation with Jorginho at the base of the midfield, directing the play and the tempo. There’s no chance of Kante reverting back to his best position and the midfield often appears rigid, with Jorginho not yet attuned to the often frenetic pace of English soccer after his offseason move from Napoli.Where a change is likely to come is up front with Gonzalo Higuain reportedly close to joining from AC Milan, which would see the Argentina striker link up again with Sarri after they were together at Napoli. That would mean Hazard moving back out wide, where he is more dangerous, and running at defenders.Still, Sarri is gambling on a striker in the 31-year-old Higuain who Cheap Belgium Soccer Jerseys , like Jorginho, has never previously played in England and has hardly been in great form. He has scored eight times in 22 appearances this season.It seems a short-term fix for Chelsea’s biggest problem, coming at a time when 18-year-old prodigy Callum Hudson-Odoi might be on his way to Bayern Munich because of a lack of game time.Time will tell if Sarri’s stinging rebuke of his players has his desired effect. He’ll hope the first signs come on Thursday in the second leg of Chelsea’s English League Cup semifinal against Tottenham, which leads 1-0.World-class and international players like Hazard, Kante, Cesar Azpilicueta and Willian might not like their professionalism being questioned, though. Their reaction will be telling.SALAH UNDER FIREAway from his prolific scoring exploits Cheap Brazil Soccer Jerseys , there’s another side to Mohamed Salah’s game that is putting the Liverpool forward in the headlines.Salah went down in the area under a challenge from Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho in Liverpool’s 4-3 win on Saturday. The penalty appeal was waved away and Palace players weren’t happy. The incident sparked a reaction on social media and among pundits.Among them was former England striker Alan Shearer, who said Salah’s action was “pretty embarrassing really.”The Egypt international has won — and subsequently converted — three penalties in recent weeks following fouls by Newcastle’s Paul Dummett, Arsenal’s Sokratis and Brighton’s Pascal Gross. Each player made contact with Salah, though he did go down easily.Burnley manager Sean Dyche also described as “bizarre” the decision by the Football Association to not give Salah a retrospective ban for what Dyche perceived as a dive against Newcastle. Police in Malawi used tear gas to quell protests against Walter Nyamilandu’s re-election as president of the country’s soccer federation. Police told The Associated Press on Saturday angry supporters of losing candidate James Mwenda had burned tires and attempted to climb a fence of the lodge where the elections took place to beat up delegates who voted 23-13 in favor of Nyamilandu.Eastern region police spokesperson Joseph Sauka confirmed the clashes took place but said no arrests were made after protesters sneaked past two road blocks in an attempt to reach the delegates, who were locked in a meeting room for their safety. “There was indeed a fracas, luckily the police intervened and the elections continued,” Sauka told The AP.The build up to the election was marred by clashes at match venues between supporters for Nyamilandu Cheap Colombia Soccer Shirts , a FIFA council member, and Mwenda which forced the Malawi National Council of Sports to have the two candidates sign a peace pact to tame their followers.Pro-Mwenda followers released videos threatening to make Malawi football ungovernable if Nyamilandu were re-elected for a fifth four-year term, saying it was time for him to go because the sport had stagnated under his watch.Mwenda conceded defeat saying: “The affiliates have spoken. I wish the president all the best for being re-elected. This is not the end of my football career. I am not lost from Malawi football.”Tension began earlier this year when Nyamilandu announced he would not seek re-election only to make a U-turn when he won the FIFA Council post. Nyamilandu’s critics say he has overstayed his welcome in office and that the national team’s performance has deteriorated under his watch.However, Nyamilandu who was capped 12 times for Malawi and attended trials at Chelsea in the late 1990s, insists it is now time for the southern African country to benefit from his role at FIFA. __
