There are lot of claims making the round in England that Coach Claude Puel should play Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans as a central pair. Leicester played well against Manchester United in the opening game. However they lost 2-1.

With the team looking to do better this season, a strong defensive pair is crucial. Maguire and Evans can partner to deliver this. Maguire partnered Wes Morgan at Old Trafford in the first game. But the 34-year old Morgan that played was far from the club legend that helped the club win the Premier League in 2016.

COLOCCINI’S RETURN TO SAN LORENZO

FabricioColoccini returned home to Argentina to join San Lorenzo last year after eight years with Newcastle United, with the north-east club announcing their captain’s contract had been terminated by mutual consent.

Senol Gunes will remain in charge of Besiktas

Senol Gunes will remain in charge of Besiktas

Senol Gunes will remain in charge of Besiktas and won’t take charge of his country’s national side.


Initially the soccer association of Turkey had approached Gunes to fill the vacant spot of the head coach of the national side, but, the 65-year old refused to take up the job.

After that, the association asked the Besiktas hierarchy if they could allow Gunes to perform the dual role of the head coach of Besiktas as well as that of the national side on a temporary basis.

The Besiktas hierarchy refused to that and conveyed to the national association that they don’t think it’s a beneficial proposition for any of the two parties concerned.

Recently Besiktas put forward a statement on social media in which they confirmed that a proposal was there for Gunes to oversee the operations of both the sides, but, that was not accepted by them.

DIRK KUYT HANGS UP BOOT ON A HIGH

DIRK KUYT HANGS UP BOOT ON A HIGH

The tireless, peerless and talented goalscorer Dirk Kuyt ended his career on a high as he is set to quit the Feyenoord team after leading them to the Eredivisie title.


The Dutch talisman ended the club’s 18-ywar wait for the title as he scored a hat trick to deliver it ahead of Ajax.

He scored from a narrow angle, then a header before finishing it off with a well-taken penalty in the 3-1 victory over opponents Heracles Almelo. He is largely the factor responsible for the club’s first Eredivisie title since 1999.

Though the victory is not in the league of Leicester’s when they overcame a 5000 to 1 odds to lift the Premier League last year, it still presents a difficult prediction as at when the league started.

Stephen Warnock Believes Aston Villa Do Not Belong in the Championship

Former Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock reckons that the club certainly belong in the Premier League and not in the Championship.


It has gone horribly wrong for the Midlands outfit over the last few years. After flirting with relegation for almost 3 seasons, the club finally ended up in the Championship at the end of last season. As a player who used to represent Villa for a number of years, Warnock is surprised by the decline of the club. However, he expects Villa to bounce back strongly even though they have struggled for form this season.

As one of the few teams to have won the European cup in England, Villa had the reputation of having the gone down into the second division of English football since the Premier league was founded in 1992. More than the club’s relegation, it was the disappointing start to the campaign in the Championship that proved to be the biggest disappointment since many were expecting Villa to challenge for the title straightaway.
