Hiddink gives Conte advice

Guus Hiddink reckons Antonio Conte, who has been named to succeed him at Stamford Bridge, should have his eyes on the products of the club’s academy and should make sure that they are moved up to the next level if they are ready.

The Chelsea board has always spent heavily on the academic facilities so that the talents make progress quickly and smoothly and make the journey to the next level.

But, most of the club’s coaches in the past, including the legendary Jose Mourinho, have been indifferent to youngsters from the academy and have just not trusted them enough to use them at the senior level.

Arsenal Chase Higuain

There are 1 month left in this season of the Premier League and it seems like the title will only be disputed between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City - the current top 2 teams, and unless they start dropping points at an extremely fast rate, it’s hard to consider any other club to have a realistic chance of becoming the new champions of England.

Arsenal are currently located in 3rd place with 55 points while Tottenham Hotspur is in 2nd place with 61 and Leicester City is sitting at the top with 66 points.

Inter Milan suffered a major blow to their title race

Inter Milan suffered a major blow to their title race after the 3-3 draw with Hellas Verona.

Following the match, manager Roberto Mancini ruled out the possibility of winning the title this season. This was due to Juventus stretching their winning run even further with a 2-0 win against Frosinone. Inter were expected to get a consecutive win – following their narrow win over Chievo – a week ago. As the league’s bottom club,Hellas Verona were seen as easy opposition. However, they put up a stern fight and were able to come away with a thrilling draw.

Roberto Mancini recently dropped striker Mauro Icardi

Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini recently dropped striker Mauro Icardi from the starting line-up for the game against Genoa.

The match finished as a narrow 1-0 win for Inter, but many have been questioning his decision to dropIcardi. It appears that his decision to drop the 22-year-old was taken after the recent poor performance in the 2-1 defeat against Napoli.Icardi has scored six goals in 13 appearances. However, only three of those goals were scored in the last nine games. It appears that he paid for this poor performance after dropping to the bench against Genoa.

HENRIQUE HEADS HOME

Henrique has decided to part ways with Napoli and return to his country Brazil to play for Fluminense. The news of his departure was put on the Twitter profile of Napoli yesterday.

Henrique for Napoli

The veteran centre half, who had come to Napoli at the start of 2014, had not been in the plans of the boss Maurizio Sarri of late, and wwas being tipped to move on by the Casino-X website.

Henrique had played well when he had joined Napoli first up and his form had even earned him a national recall for the World Cup, but luck didn’t favour him thereafter. Although an outside to make the team, he became one of the favourites to make the squad on the online casinospielen website, and was soon on his was back to take part in a World Cup in his homeland!

GOMEZ HEADS TO TURKEY

German international Mario Gomez has ended his adventure in Italy football after securing a move to Turkish club Besiktas on a season-long loan deal.

Gomez has been at Fiorentina since 2013, but he has been plagued by injury problems of late. This led to his absence at the World Cup 2014, which was eventually won by the German national team. Germany were able to lift the World Cup title even without a star striker like Gomez and this is likely to sound the end of his international career. His move to Besiktas reflects the same, even though the latest StanJames odds suggest he is in with a chance of a return.

Massimiliano Allegri has admitted that his team are playing catch-up

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has admitted that his team are playing catch-up the Italian Serie A title race and it will be difficult for the club to retain the title once again.

Juventus have won the league title for the last couple of seasons, but there is a real danger of the run coming to an end. The team made a disastrous start to the league campaign. Even though the form has recovered in recent weeks with just one loss in the last four, Juventus have managed only five victories out of the 12 games they have played. As a result, they are already almost 10 points behind table leaders Fiorentina.

Have Juventus been toying with us all along?

On Saturday September 26, Juventus suffered their third defeat of the Serie A campaign and were left licking their wounds as their title defence lay in tatters.

For them, the opening six games of the season had delivered just one win and five points and serious questions were being asked of a side that had been so dominant just a few months previous – a la Chelsea in the Premier League.

Unlike the Blues of England, though, the Old Lady of Turin has got her house in order and responded positively to a period of adversity and uncertainty.

INTER CAN SUCCEED

Inter Milan had a busy summer transfer window as the Italian club managed to sign: Geoffrey Kondogbia, Miranda, Ivan Perisic and Stevan Jovetic just to name a few of them and they also offloaded a few high profile players including: Mateo Kovacic and Hernanes.

There is no doubt that Inter Milan is seriously attempting to win the Serie A title which they haven’t lifted since the 2009-10 season.

SOUTH AFRICA CHASE THE MONEY

A large amount of FIFA executives were also arrested as it was confirmed that illegal trades have been taking place. Sepp Blatter couldn’t take the heat as pressure continued to build.
