Pep Gain as Mourinho was Left in Pain
Back then at Barcelona, when Rijkaard left the caretaker job, current Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was the first choice to fill the void. However, cheekily the club’s president made Pep Guardiola as the man in charge and he went on clinching 14 titles. Special One wasn’t specially valued then.
Never Underestimate Goal Difference
Fans at times will be in a mind-set that a win is enough to cherish the day, yet managers do take goals into account earnestly.

Action Speaks Louder Than Words, Especially Loyalty
In 2006, Juventus were rock-bottomed to the Serie B and many predicted that a wholesale clearance of top stars is going to take place.

Respect!
Arsenal the Lucky-Spell for Former Evertonian
The Gunners have been having horrid times over the years dealing with the threat from Wayne Rooney. The fantasy premier league star has scored the most goals as an individual against Arsenal. Spectacularly, Rooney’s 1st, 100th and 150th Premier League goals for the Red Devils were all scored against the North London team.
A Unique Preparation Before World Cup

Spanish Maestro Ineffective For a Very Long Gap
It would be shocking for many as Barcelona talisman Andes Iniesta hasn’t registered an assist or found the back of the net in La Liga since the 26th of March 2014, exactly 365 days!
Can you Work Hard as Ronaldo to Achieve Similarity with Him?
Besides his phenomenal style of play and series of glorious trophies secured by Cristiano Ronaldo, the former Manchester United winger is vastly admired for his strong physique. Plenty are hitting the gym but how much effort are they putting in? The Portuguese international lifts approximately 23.055 kg of weights during a training session, which is a total of 16 Toyota Prius cars, remarkable!
Too Good, the Opponents Turned Supporters!
Back in 2005, the world-class Ronaldinho notched an outstanding goal against Real Madrid at Bernabeu. His goal was that fabulous that the home crowd joined the Barcelona fans to applaud him.
Mother’s Magic Sparked Belgian
Eden Hazard’s mother Carine played in the Belgian first division and the dazzling Chelsea winger followed her footsteps. His mother would be exceedingly proud of her son who is being labelled as a world-class star in the making.
