Wholesale FC Borussia Dortmund Jerseys Outlet From China

Eine Fußball-Bundesliga ohne Rekordmeister FC Bayern München? Auch ohne Borussia Dortmund, das mit fast 80.000 Fans pro Heimspiel in der Saison 2017/18 die meisten Zuschauer in ein Fußballstadion zog? Und ohne Revierderby gegen Schalke 04? Offenbar ist dieser Gedanke längst nicht so abwegig, wie mancher Anhänger bisher gedacht hatte. Ab der Saison 2021/22 könnte eine European Super League (ESL) mit 16 Mannschaften an den Start gehen. Der FC Bayern soll dabei einer der elf Gründungsmitglieder neben anderen Topklubs sein, der BVB zu den fünf Gästen gehören, die ebenfalls in der ESL starten dürften.Spielmodus unklar

Dazu könnte es eine zweite Liga mit weiteren 16 Topteams geben, so dass ein Auf- und Abstieg mit der ESL möglich sei. Ein entsprechender Entwurf soll durch die Unterschrift der insgesamt 16 vorgesehenen Topklubs noch in diesem Monat zu einer bindenden Absichtserklärung werden. Dieses Vorhaben geht aus vertraulichen Dokumenten der Enthüllungsplattform Football Leaks hervor, die das Nachrichtenmagazin „Der Spiegel“ erhalten und mit dem NDR und dem Recherche-Netzwerk EIC ausgewertet hat.
Uefa offenbar nicht involviert

Der Spielmodus bleibt dabei allerdings zunächst ebenso im Dunkeln wie die Frage, welche Auswirkung eine solche Liga auf die Bundesliga und die Champions League des Europäischen Fußballverbandes Uefa hätte. Die Uefa ist offenbar nicht in die Pläne involviert. Die European Super League soll privat organisiert werden, also von Vertretern der beteiligten Klubs.

Zu den elf Gründungsmitgliedern würden neben dem FC Bayern auch noch Real Madrid und der FC Barcelona, die fünf Premier-League-Teams Manchester United, FC Arsenal, Manchester City, FC Liverpool und FC Chelsea, die Serie-A-Klubs Juventus Turin und AC Mailand sowie Paris Saint-Germain zählen. Zu den Gästen würden Borussia Dortmund, Atlético Madrid, Inter Mailand, AS Rom und Olympique Marseille gehören. Welche Vereine in einer zweiten Liga starten sollen, ist unklar.In der Vergangenheit hatte es immer wieder Drohszenarien der Uefa gegenüber gegeben, um mehr Geld aus der Champions League zu bekommen. Die Pläne für eine Super League existieren offenbar schon seit mehr als zwei Jahren. 2016 war laut Nachrichtenmagazin „Der Spiegel“ Michael Gerlinger, der Chefjurist des FC Bayern, einer der Anführer der Fußball-Revolution und schon als Geschäftsführer der zu gründenden Firma „Super League Limited“ mit Sitz in London nominiert.

In der ARD-Dokumentation „Football Leaks“ betont Jurist Gerlinger: „Die Uefa hat von uns die Botschaft erhalten: Wir brauchen euch nicht.“ Eine privat organisierte Liga sei vor allem deshalb überaus attraktiv, weil die Spitzenklubs den Wettbewerb in allen Bereichen selbst vermarkten könnten.

Zum nun öffentlich gemachten Vorhaben einer European Super League hielten sich die Verantwortlichen der beteiligten deutschen Klubs allerdings sehr bedeckt. Die Münchener, die sich mit ihrer Arena am Donnerstag als Gastgeber für das Finale der Champions League im Mai 2021 beworben haben, teilten auf Anfrage mit, „weder die Existenz noch den Inhalt“ der Pläne zu kennen.
Watzke sieht Brandmauer

„Wenn es aber soweit kommen sollte, dann würde das nicht ohne den BVB gehen“, äußerte sich Borussia Dortmunds Geschäftsführer Hans-Joachim Watzke bereits am 12. Oktober. Ein Ausstieg aus der Bundesliga, der der BVB seit 1976 angehört, sei mit ihm aber nicht zu machen: „Die Brandmauer ist da, wo das Thema anstehen könnte: Wir gehen aus der Bundesliga raus. Das ist für den BVB nicht vorstellbar.“

Genau dies hatten die Münchener Bayern allerdings angeblich schon 2016 geprüft. Die internationale Anwaltskanzlei Cleary Gottlieb war laut der Football-Leaks-Dokumente beauftragt worden zu untersuchen, unter welchen Umständen der Verein die Bundesliga und auch die Champions League verlassen könnte.

Wholesale FC Barcelona Jerseys Outlet From China

After a bright start from both sides, Barca seized the early initiative with the breakthrough after Phillipe Coutinho comfortably tapped home from inside the box.

With Real all at sea, Barcelona seized forward at random and nearly grabbed a second from their few half-chances.

Barca looked all the more promising and it took a great acrobatic save from Thibaut Courtois to keep out a powerful drive from Arthur Melo on the edge of the box.
A penalty was awarded to them after Raphael Varane brought down Luis Suarez. It was awarded on VAR consultation after dismissing the initial appeal.

The Uruguayan dusted himself off to beat Thibaut Courtois despite the latter going the right way on the half and hour mark for his second league goal in succession.

The Catalans were all over the show and a looping header from Gerard Pique just failed to connect with Suarez allowing Courtois to collect in the end.

From that sequence, a turnover of possession allowed Rafinha in on goal and he got goal-side before curling a left-footer over the top three minutes to halftime.

At the start of the second half, Real feeling the surge introduced the first change as Lucas Vazquez replaced the ineffective Varane.

The change brought some respite as it led them to reduce the deficit after Marcelo controlled perfectly a loose ball to slice home a loose ball five minute from the break.

Real were running the show at this point and Luka Modric fired against the post from a cross-field pass from Isco to the roar of the large crowd at Camp Nou.

The five-time European champions upped the ante again and a spell of good passes picked out Sergi Roberto out wide to cut back for Suarez to hit on the volley and struck the post.

The Catalans were edging closer to a third, but Real nearly found the equaliser with a cross from Vazquez meeting Karim Benzema to head over the top

Inevitably the contest was sealed on 74 minutes when Roberto picked out Suarez to head home from the penalty spot inside the 18-yard box.

Los Blancos were out of their widths and it was no surprise to see Barca taking off in full flight with total domination.

A delicate but well-timed chip from Suarez seven minutes to the end, leaving an on-rushing Courtois in his wake.

Substitute and summer signing Arturo Vidal came on and instantly made his presence felt after heading home a cross at the far post to end the match as a contest.

Suarez was denied a fourth in added time when his volley from inside the box drew a good instinctive save from Courtois.

Wholesale Manchester United FC Jerseys From China

Zinedine Zidane is ‘not really attracted’ by the Manchester United managerial position should it become available, according to the Frenchman’s agent.

Alain Migliaccio says he has spoken with the France legend about the prospect of possibly taking over as United manager, but Zidane reportedly says any job in England wouldn’t suit his style.

The former Real Madrid manager continues to be linked with replacing Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, should the Portuguese depart the club. Mourinho’s future at the club has been cast into doubt after a disappointing start to the new season which has seen United struggle for results, while a number of off-field incidents have also questioned his power at the club report the MEN .

A report on Friday night claimed Mourinho would be relieved from his duties regardless of the result against Newcastle on Saturday. Rafa Bentiez’s side took a 2-0 half-time lead at Old Trafford, before United rallied in the second-half to secure a dramatic 3-2 comeback victory . It remains to be seen if victory over Newcastle will prove to be be a turning point in the club’s turbulent season, however it appears that Zidane does not see himself as a future United manager regardless of Mourinho’s future.Speaking to Journal du Dimanche, Migliaccio, said: “I do not think that he will manage in England. It is much less his style. I have discussed it with him, it does not really attract him. He has chosen to have a year out, he will not dive in again before that is over.” “The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone,” Mourinho told TalkSport . “If I hadn’t had an SMS from my board not to read (the papers) I would have been convinced too.”

Wholesale Real Madrid Jerseys From China

Real Madrid missed the chance to go two points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga as they drew 0-0 with Atletico Madrid on Saturday in an edgy, but entertaining, local derby in which the outstanding players were the two goalkeepers.

Real’s Thibaut Courtois made two exceptional saves in the first half to thwart Atletico strikers Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa, while his opposite number, Jan Oblak, rescued the visitors with two cold-blooded stops after the interval to deny Marco Asensio and Dani Carvajal.

Gareth Bale came close to scoring for Real in the first half but was substituted at the start of the second with a suspected groin injury although his side improved without their record signing, almost snatching a winner in stoppage time when captain Sergio Ramos headed narrowly wide.

Real have now failed to beat Atletico at home in the league in their last six attempts, with their last victory coming in December 2012 when Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Real are joint-top of the standings, locked on 14 points with Barcelona, who have a slightly superior goal difference, despite their surprise 1-1 draw at home to Athletic Bilbao.

Atletico, 12 points, drop down to fourth, while Sevilla climb into third, with 13 points, after winning 3-1 at Eibar.

Atletico had beaten Real to win the UEFA Super Cup in August and their confidence had been lifted after a poor start to the campaign by back-to-back wins over Getafe and Huesca.

Real, meanwhile, went into the game hurting from a humiliating 3-0 defeat at Sevilla on Wednesday and were missing key players Isco and Marcelo through injury.

Real controlled the game with more possession although Atletico looked more dangerous going forward and had the two clearest chances of the first half. Griezmann and then Costa sneaked towards goal down the left hand side only to be thwarted by former Atletico goalkeeper Courtois.

Real’s best attempt before the interval was a volley from Bale which narrowly missed the far post, and the home side nearly scored when Oblak carelessly kicked the ball straight to Asensio, but it bounced off the forward and back into the Slovenian’s hands.

Real coach Julen Lopetegui decided to replace the injured Bale with Spain midfielder Dani Ceballos, which allowed his side to further dominate possession and create better chances.

The best opening fell to Asensio, who was given a clear sight of goal thanks to a pass from Ceballos but was denied by the right fist of Oblak.

Ramos almost repeated his memorable late goal against Atletico in the 2014 Champions League final when he met a corner in the final minute of stoppage time, but this time his header missed the target.

Wholesale Inter Milan FC Jersey From China

 

Inter Milan claimed a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina in a Serie A game overshadowed by a video assistant referee controversy.

Fiorentina hit the post early on through Kevin Mirallas, but they fell behind on the stroke of half-time when Antonio Candreva’s cross struck the arm of Vitor Hugo.

The defender was extremely unfortunate as he had little hope of getting out of the way of Candreva’s cross from a yard away.

But the incident was reviewed by VAR and, after a penalty was awarded, Mauro Icardi made no mistake for his first league goal of the season from the penalty spot.

Fiorentina were level eight minutes after the break when Federico Chiesa’s 20-yard shot deflected off Milan Skriniar and wrongfooted Samir Handanovic in the Inter goal.

Chiesa went close again for Fiorentina and the visitors looked the more likely winners.

But Inter claimed a second successive league win 13 minutes from time when Danilo D’Ambrosio strode through and finished confidently after playing a one-two with Icardi.

Cheap Zlatan Ibrahimovic Jerserys

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will arrive in Los Angeles on Thursday, train with his new team on Friday and be available for selection in the LA Galaxy’s first derby with expansion LAFC on Saturday, the club announced.

Ibrahimovic, 36, completed his move from Manchester United to Major League Soccer on March 23, signing a two-year deal worth $3 million, according to ESPN FC sources.

The former Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Milan striker said last week that he was ready to go and eager to help the team get better, circling the March 31 derby as a possible debut date.

Manager Sigi Schmid told reporters that Ibrahimovic is definitely in contention to make his debut on Saturday, but said if he plays and for how long will depend on how he looks in training on Friday.

“We’ll see how he is when he arrives, obviously he gets here on Thursday and then we have to see how he is physically and everything else,” Schmid said after training on Tuesday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Galaxy introduction

“I think there’s a chance he can play a part in the [LAFC] game. I don’t think he’s going to play 90 minutes, but we have to evaluate once he gets here. It’s a long flight and [we have to] see how he feels.

“Friday is a pretty easy practice the day before the game. We just expect him to be able to be a part of the group and start to introduce himself to the group.
“It’s all about team and he knows that, he’s been part of successful teams and he knows what it takes to be able to compete, so it’s just the first step.”

Schmid also said he wasn’t concerned about a knee injury Ibrahimovic originally sustained in the Europa League quarterfinals against Anderlecht last April and aggravated on Dec. 29 in a game versus Burnley, the last match in which he has played.

He said: “We’re not concerned because we’ve gotten the reports from the doctors and from the physical people at Manchester and physically they said he was fine and was able to train and that maybe it was a little more of a coach’s decision than anything else.”

Ibrahimovic joined United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain before the 2016-17 season and has also played for AC Milan, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Ajax and Malmo, scoring more than 450 goals for club and country.

He scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for United, including two in the EFL Cup final victory against Southampton last season..
However, United’s £90 million purchase of Romelu Lukaku earlier in the summer pushed Ibrahimovic to the sidelines, and their elimination this month from the Champions League — which Ibrahimovic never won — allowed the Galaxy to secure him now, rather than during the summer transfer window.

Ibrahimovic posted a farewell statement to United on Instagram last week, saying: “Great things also come to an end and it is time to move on after two fantastic seasons with Manchester United. Thank you to the club, the fans, the team, the coach, the staff and everybody who shared with me this part of my history.”

Cheap Paul Pogba Jerseys USA

The France national team are rallying around Paul Pogba before the international friendly against Colombia on Friday evening in Paris, with captain Hugo Lloris describing the Manchester United midfielder as “a leader in our team.”

Sources inside the France camp told ESPN FC that Paul Pogba is revitalised being with his France teammates and smiling again after the tension of the last few weeks.
Before joining up with the France squad, Pogba was left on the bench for the FA Cup quarterfinal against Brighton on Saturday. He only came on as a substitute for the final 30 minutes against Sevilla in the Champions League three days earlier and missed the Premier League victory against Liverpool before that. His last start was in the 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on March 5.

Sources said Pogba is enjoying being in France, focusing on the national team and wants the two matches against Colombia on Friday and Russia on Tuesday to help him get his season back on track. His chat with Didier Deschamps, where he told the head coach that all was not well at Manchester United and with Jose Mourinho, has helped him deal with the situation.

Pogba has had a tough few weeks with United but Deschamps and national team captain, Hugo Lloris have shown their support towards the 25-year-old on Thursday in their prematch news conferences.

“Paul is a leader in our team. He has had injuries which explain why he has been inconsistent at times. But when he is 100 percent, he is one of the best players in the world,” Lloris said.

The goalkeeper, who played against him when Tottenham beat Manchester United on Jan. 31 at Wembley in the Premier League, when Pogba clashed with Jose Mourinho on the touchline, is confident his teammate will deliver for France come the World Cup.

“He knows his place, his responsibilities and I have no doubt that he will be at his best at the World Cup” Lloris added.
Earlier in the week, Deschamps said that Pogba could not be happy with his current situation in England and that he would talk to him, something he has subsequently done.

“His situation in Manchester is complicated,” Deschamps said. “It is good for him to be here with us. I had a long discussion with him. I know how to deal with him.

“I am here to encourage my players, show them my confidence but also be truthful with them. I am here to put them in the best condition for the national team.”

Deschamps gave Pogba his France debut in March 2013 and the midfielder has been a key player under him, taking part in 49 of the 64 matches with Deschamps at the helm.

His last 16 appearances with Les Bleus have have seen him in the starting XI. Even if his performances have been inconsistent, Deschamps has always protected him.
Pogba has been very good at training this week at Clairefontaine. However, he is not expected to start on Friday against Colombia. Indeed, in the last training behind closed doors on Thursday evening at the Stade de France, he was not part of the team that should play on Friday, sources told ESPN FC. Instead, N’Golo Kante and Blaise Matuidi will start in midfield.

France will line up in a 4-4-2 formation with Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud up front. Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe will be the two attacking wide players. At the back, Samuel Umtiti will be preferred to Laurent Koscielny to play alongside Raphael Varane at centre-back. Djibril Sidibe and Lucas Digne will be the two full-backs.

Pogba will come on during the game, though, and should start on Tuesday against Russia.

Cheap International Paris Saint-Germain Jerseys

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti said he believes Lionel Messi gets special treatment from referees as he apologised for his sending off in the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

Verratti was dismissed when he picked up a second booking for dissent as PSG lost 2-1 at the Parc des Princes.
The Italy midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport he felt Messi would have got away with that reaction, but stressed that he had been mistaken to respond as he did.

“I got it wrong against Real, but it was a red card out of frustration and sometimes referees could be more tolerant,” he said.

“It was a bad reaction but I didn’t insult anybody, whereas Messi goes around pointing his finger in the referee’s face and doesn’t even get punished. But anyway, I need to improve.”

Verratti, whose side lost to Real 5-2 on aggregate, said he felt they had been close to matching the Champions League holders and could have done so had Neymar been fit.
“PSG are not that far away from Real Madrid,” he said. “We were convinced we could go through, but then certain incidents make the difference.

“It [being without Neymar] is like taking Messi away from Barcelona — they are players who make up 30 percent of a team.

“We’re lucky to have him. He cost a lot because he’s phenomenal.”

Verratti said that, contrary to reports, he would be staying in Paris, adding that he hoped Neymar would too.

“I read that [agent Mino] Raiola had offered me to Barcelona — it’s a lie,” he said.

“I’ve spoken with my management and they know what I think, and it is all clear. I’ve decided to stay.

“I’m utterly intent on winning with PSG, who gave me this opportunity to grow also as a man, and I share in an ambitious project.

“I hope my teammates also think like this because one defeat cannot erase everything. If we are to reach great objectives then we need great players. It’s so much easier with Neymar.”

Cheap Manchester United Jerseys Youth

LIVERPOOL — Jurgen Klopp said he has no problem with Liverpool parking the bus against Manchester United on Saturday and a defensive approach will have to be taken at times during his team’s trip to Old Trafford.

After the goalless draw between the two teams at Anfield earlier this season, Klopp suggested that the defensive approach United adopted would perhaps not be tolerated at Liverpool.

However, speaking at a news conference on Friday, Klopp admits there will be moments where his team will be forced to defend with all 11 players behind the ball.

“This United team has a specific way of playing football — that’s all,” Klopp said. “We have to defend there with all we have and not gambling and thinking we are flying when playing Man United. Nobody flies. They are too strong, physically too strong, tactically too strong.

“It’s not a battle of systems or philosophies. It’s two very good football teams who will face each other.

“When United will attack, I hope all my players are involved in defending, to be honest. And if somebody then says that was parking the bus in that moment then we park the bus — I have no problem with that.

“Over 95, 97 minutes, of course, we want to bring our football on the pitch as well and that’s difficult to cope with as well to deal with. That’s the plan for this game.

“I don’t think there will be a lot of space in a lot of moments. It will be a big fight — how derbies are in general. Hopefully at the end with a positive result for us.”
Liverpool’s last three meetings with Mourinho’s United sides have all ended in draws. United only registered 38 percent possession and a single shot on target during the most recent encounter in October, leading to criticism aimed towards Jose Mourinho for his decision to “park the bus.”

“I would never use the words,” Klopp said. “In this specific game, I have absolutely no problem with defending.

“I know how the situation is at the moment and what people are saying. They play a specific kind of football, we play a specific kind of football — and everybody makes a big thing of it. But it’s all about winning and there are different ways to win football games.”

A win at Old Trafford on the weekend would see Liverpool move ahead of United into second place in the Premier League.

“I don’t think this game needs any extra reasons to be a bigger game,” Klopp said. “It’s the biggest game I can imagine.

“First of all, [I’m] really looking forward to it. How it always is in these games, it’s difficult. We need to be at 100 percent, if not even a few more, to get something — that’s the plan.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the United match, with captain Jordan Henderson recovering from the “dead leg” he suffered in midweek during the Porto draw.

Andrew Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum are also fit and available for Saturday, while Nathaniel Clyne continues to build up fitness following his long-term back injury.

“Robbo is clear,” Klopp said. “Clyney is still on a very good way, with no further injury since he has been back.

“Hendo, dead leg, looked OK yesterday. Gini is also on the way back and looked good. Him and Ben [Woodburn] lost one or two kilos [due to illness], but should be OK again. It was normal in training.”

cheap neymar jersey

Neymar’s father expects his son to miss “between six to eight weeks” and ruled out any chance of playing against Real Madrid next week, he told ESPN Brasil on Tuesday night.

The Brazilian star suffered a crack in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot and sprained his ankle during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday, but coach Unai Emery insisted earlier on Tuesday that no decision has been made over whether Neymar will have surgery.
However, Neymar Sr, who serves as his son’s agent and manager, told ESPN that a quick return is out of the question, despite PSG’s hopes that their star player will recover in time for next week’s crucial Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

“PSG already know they will not have Neymar in the next few games, six weeks minimum, because this treatment will last six to eight weeks,” Neymar Sr said. “That is already certain, regardless of surgery. What we can’t do is something that may cause a fracture in the future.”

He added: “Yes, of course he is out against Real Madrid. It is absurd if anybody thinks otherwise.”

Neymar Sr also said that PSG and his son are both waiting for Brazil’s medical staff to arrive to decide about whether to have surgery, but he was positive that the injury was of the kind that would call for an operation.

“We are waiting on PSG to settle this, where [surgery] will happen, it is not up to Neymar to decide,” Neymar Sr said. “It is not my decision, or his. I’m not a doctor, our family doesn’t have any doctors.

“We have to wait on the club’s decision, which they are waiting the right time to make, they are waiting the Brazilian national team doctor to arrive. Neymar will not decide this.”

The doctor for Brazil’s national teams, Rodrigo Lasmar, confirmed earlier on Tuesday that he was en route to Paris.
National teams coordinator Edu Gaspar told AS earlier that there was no conflict between the Brazil federation and PSG over Neymar’s treatment, saying: “We always uphold the decisions made by the clubs.”

Earlier, sources close to both the player and PSG told ESPN FC’s Jonathan Johnson that Neymar does not want to play with painkillers if that is the only way to take the pitch, because he feels the method would increase the risk of the injury becoming more serious than it already is.

Neymar is desperate to play against Madrid if at all possible, the sources added, but he understands that he might not be able to do so and he is not prepared to risk the rest of the season with PSG and the World Cup with Brazil in order to play with the aid of injections next week.

The sources also said that those closest to Neymar are keen for him to undergo surgery as soon as possible, if it is ultimately unavoidable, to ensure that he does not jeopardise his World Cup, which begins for Brazil on June 17.

PSG, though, want to wait and see if reduced swelling makes surgery avoidable, which is why Emery called for calm during his news conference.
“No decision to operate has been taken,” Emery said, rejecting earlier reports that Neymar would need three months to recover. “I have met with the doctor, and he told me that the sprain was swollen. His fifth metatarsal has a crack in it. We will take a decision in the coming days. However, for the moment, calm is needed.”

With PSG already trailing Real Madrid 3-1 after the first leg, Neymar’s absence next week would be a huge blow — particularly when considering they spent €222 million to acquire him last summer in large part to improve their Champions League record.

The French club crashed out in the quarterfinals in four straight seasons before falling to Neymar and Barcelona in the round of 16 a year ago.
