Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has revealed that it was his teammate Steven Gerrard who convinced him to move away from Liverpool back in 2011.
Torres was vindicated heavily by Liverpool supporters after he switched to one of the club’s archrivals, Chelsea, for a fee of £ 50 million. Even though his Chelsea career was extremely successful by lifting numerous titles like the Champions League, it ended on a sour note since he was unable to replicate his Liverpool form. Since then, Torres has moved to the likes of AC Milan and is now with his boyhood club Atletico.
Cardiff City manager Russell Slade said that his team were deserving of a victory from their latest match against Charlton Athletic.
The Brazilian full-back of Cardiff City Fabio da Silva was optimistic when he joined Cardiff City on January 29 of the ongoing year and during this time Cardiff City was still competing in the Premier League, however after a series of negative results they finished at the bottom of the English League and were relegated to the Championship League despite the introduction of new players to the team including Manchester United’s Fabio da Silva who had launched some pieces of advice to his new team.
Cardiff manager Russell Slade has hit out at his predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by saying that the squad lacked any kind of coherence and planning.
He pointed out to the fact that the Championship outfit signed as many as 30 players at one point. This led to a bloated squad, and Slade believes that the team is paying the price for it right now. Slade has been able to benefit from some of those signings like Federico Macheda, who has been a regular first-team player. Most of them, however, are expected to be shipped away in the next few transfer windows.
Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that he is extremely happy with the way his team have started the new Championship season. Cardiff were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing bottom of the table. However, subsequent strengthening during the transfer window has listed them as one of the favourites to get promoted straight back up. Some key players like Fabio Da Silva and Federico Macheda have been signed during this period. They have contributed to Cardiff’s unbeaten start to the new season.
The manager of the Brazilian national football team, Luiz Felipe Scolari, has said that he doesn’t care about what the critics are saying about his team.
The Brazilians have not lost a single match in the ongoing FIFA World Cup and have made their way into the semi final round of the tournament, but, still, there are some people who are not happy with their performance.
Those critics reckon that the hosts have been a bit lucky at times and they might be found wanting against stronger opponents in the remaining two rounds.
The Red Devils are close to securing the services of the young left back Luke Shaw who has been a part of Southampton FC since the last couple of years.
Shaw is only 18 years of age at the moment, but, the pundits in England are rating him very highly.
Cardiff City suffered after ending the Premier League season in the last spot and now has to get ready to play in the upcoming campaign battling it out in the Championship League.
Fabio Da Silva stayed at Old Trafford for 5 seasons but after failing to make any kind of impact with the team, he was transferred to Cardiff City on January 29 but even though the club has is experiencing relegation troubles, the former Manchester United player is ready to help the club get back into the Premier League.
Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva has revealed that he is now looking into the possibility of staying at Cardiff beyond the end of his loan spell.
He moved to the bluebirds on a loan deal from United till the end of the season. He may have been playing with the relegation threatened outfit only since January, but the 23-year-old has already become a fan’s favourite due to his endeavour on the pitch. He has also stated that he is very much looking forward to keeping the club in the Premier league, as they fight against the odds to stay in the division.
Fabio Da Silva has stated that the Cardiff city players should show more fight in order to get themselves out of relegation trouble.
The club started the game against Liverpool during the weekend extremely well. They managed to take the lead twice the encounter, but ended up losing the match 6-3. This result not only dampen their spirits, but also the possibility of getting out of the relegation zone. They are now three points adrift of safety with only nine matches remaining in the season.
