Rafa Benitez became a surprise replacement for Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, but one of his former players – Jamie Carragher – thinks that the Spaniard will be a success at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says that Arsenal should consider strengthening the club immensely in the summer if they are to maintain this good run of form.
After managing to win the FA Cup last season, the club seem to be undergoing a sense of rejuvenation. For large periods of this league campaign, Arsenal were unable to come near the top four. However, a spectacular run of form since February has seen them move into second spot and possibly challenge for the title. There will be coming up against Chelsea in a mammoth clash at the Emirates stadium this weekend.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher fully expects Real Madrid to come in with an offer for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, who has been in stunning form this season.
The Spaniard has been the only consistent player for United this season. He has received a glowing praise from various quarters, but concerns about his United future have also grown during this period. He is out of contract in less than 18 months and negotiations over a new deal appeared to have stalled for the time being.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has urged his team to not taken the opinions of former players like Jamie Carragher, who were extremely hard in the recent criticism of Liverpool.
Daniel Sturridge has suffered yet another setback in his attempts to recover from a thigh injury that has troubled him since September.
Liverpool have made substantial signings during the summer transfer window to increase the squad strength, but their former defender Jamie Carragher is of the opinion that the team may not be strong enough. Carragher was part of the Liverpool team that failed to win a league title for more than a decade, but he did win several trophies with the club including the UEFA Cup and the FA Cup. The former England international says that he is extremely happy with the way Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has strengthened the team by spending close to £ 100 million.
Although Belgium suffered defeat against Argentina in the Round of 8 the other day to get out of the FIFA World Cup, but, the skipper of the side, Vincent Kompany, is fairly happy with how their campaign in Brazil went.
According to Kompany, his team is only going to get stronger from here and in future, would pose bigger challenges to the top teams.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has revealed that England need to stop Luis Suarez from doing his tricks when England take on Uruguay in the second group match of the World Cup 2014. The Liverpool striker is expected to return to Uruguay starting line-up after missing their opening match against Costa Rica due to a knee injury. He underwent surgery on his troublesome knee only a few weeks ago, but he is expected to return back to the starting line-up against England. After having played with him before retiring, Carragher is someone who knows the 27-year-old extremely well.
Roy Hodgson’s decision to include Luke Shaw in his provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup is a choice that has sparked debate across supporters of the nation as some believe that it was the correct thing to do but others aren’t agreeing with the English coach.
Ashley Cole is an experienced defender who has already made a number of appearances for England throughout his entire career but he has been dropped and replaced by the 18 years old Luke Shaw.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says that Arsenal are no longer the favourites to finish in the top four after their 3-0 defeat against Everton. Merseyside clubs have been performing extremely well this season.
After several years of failure to challenge for the title, Liverpool are doing exactly that this campaign. Everton have finished in the top four once, but it was a freak season according to many. However, this campaign, Everton have been up there with some of the best clubs under the management of Roberto Martinez.
