The most expensive transfers in the bench market

first_imgSuccess is expensive and thus, Jose Mourinho becomes one of the coaches who has moved the most money in transfers. Chelsea invested 6 million in their pass from Porto in 2004, when with that money something could still be done in the transfer market, and Real Madrid had to raise the offer to 8 in 2010 to change Giuseppe Meazza for the Bernabéu. Curiously, in both cities he left a Champions League before leaving and in neither of the two in which they paid for him was he able to conquer La Orejona. In short, 14 million to leave seven titles on the Bridge between the two stages and three, with the League of Records included, at the Bernabéu. Brendan Rodgers and new Leicester boomThe foxes wanted to get closer to what they were with Claudio Ranieri and thought that Brendan Rodgers had to be the chosen one. In February 2019 they paid Celtic 10.5 million and they were not wrong.ANDREW BOYERS & nbsp; (Action Images via Reuters) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>ANDREW BOYERS (Action Images via Reuters) Although clubs usually use the money for transfers in footballers, There are times when a coach is more than necessary and the leaders are mortgaged almost as much as if he were a footballer.In A Bola they collected the coaches who have moved the most money in the market, leaving the top of the ranking for an unexpected André Vilas Boas. His good stage in Porto, culminating in the achievement of the Europa League, earned him a ticket to take command of Chelsea.If it came in July, in March 2012 and after just 40 matches in office he was already out of Stamford Bridge.The Special One priceJose Mourinho is a coach who leaves his mark wherever he goes and, generally, successes. The self-imposed nickname of Special One is more than accurate because if Setúbal’s passes through a team, the fans always remember his time in his titles, his character …MATTHEW CHILDS & nbsp; (Action Images via Reuters) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>MATTHEW CHILDS (Action Images via Reuters)center_img The Northern Irishman has not led them to win the Premier yet but has returned them to Champions League positions and for several weeks kept the Foxes behind an intractable Liverpool and above an ocean liner like Manchester City. If you leave them in Champions, the investment will already be covered.Real Madrid and Chelsea, among those who invested the mostIn this list and with a simple sum we can see that the clubs that have invested the most have been Real Madrid and Chelsea, both with the common denominator of Jose Mourinho. In this classification three coaches appear for which Real Madrid paid: the aforementioned Mourinho, Manuel Pellegrini (€ 4M to Villarreal) and Carlo Ancelotti (€ 3.8M to PSG) to make a total of 15.8 million invested in the benches.Chelsea beats Real Madrid with 21 million euros invested by adding 15 in Villas Boas plus 6 invested in Jose Mourinho. It should be noted that all those millions ended up in the coffers of Porto, an excellent negotiator when it comes to having to dispose of his best assets, be they players or coaches.Among those who have entered the most is Porto with those 21 ‘kilos’, Celtic with 10 from Rodgers and Sporting from Braga, since just a few days ago Sporting from Portugal paid their € 10 million clause to name him coach after just 13 games played with the archbishops.last_img read more

I missed a few shots that I shouldn’t have missed,” said Fowler-Reid, who missed five goals from 44 attempts. “It will be too much against the bigger teams,” she was quoted saying on foxsports.com.Jamaica and England have constantly exchanged bronze medals at major netball championships, and are both keen to promote themselves as title contenders.Jamaica did not disappoint in their opener against Samoa, and their 90 goals acts as a reminder of the challenge their attacking unit will provide for any team.But more notable might be the goals they conceded (44), and this could hint towards an area where England will look to capitalise.

Spain draw 1-1 with Italy in Euro 2016 warm-up

first_imgFOOTBALL: UDINE, Italy (AP): Two-time defending champions Spain began their preparations for this summer’s European Championship with a 1-1 draw against Italy in a friendly yesterday. Substitute Lorenzo Insigne fired Italy in front in the 68th minute, sliding in to meet Emanuele Giaccherini’s cross. It was the first goal Spain had conceded in nearly 700 minutes. Italy’s lead lasted just two minutes before Aritz Aduriz levelled with his first international goal, tapping in the rebound after Gianluigi Buffon parried a header by Alvaro Morata — who appeared to be offside. Italy were the more dangerous side and Spain — who beat the Azzurri 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final to successfully defend their title — did not have a shot on goal in the first half. Spain goalkeeper David de Gea pulled off several saves, including two to deny Insigne, who was a real threat after coming on for Eder in the 51st minute. Buffon was rarely challenged. There was a minute’s silence before the match to honour the victims of the Brussels attacks as well as the 13 exchange students — seven of them Italian — killed in a bus crash in Spain. Wales also drew 1-1 against Northern Ireland, thanks to a last-minute penalty from Simon Church, while the Czech Republic began their preparations with a 1-0 home defeat to Scotland. Iceland also lost to a team which failed to qualify for the tournament as two goals in four minutes from Nicolai Jorgensen helped Denmark win 2-1. Cenk Tosun scored twice to help Turkey to a 2-1 victory over Sweden, which rested Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while Ukraine beat Cyprus 1-0. Elsewhere, Malta’s match against Moldova and Estonia’s against Norway ended goalless. Greece beat Montenegro 2-1.last_img read more

Switzerland boss warns Leicester’s Inler he faces Euro 2016 omission

first_imgSwitzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic has told skipper Gokhan Inler he must force his way into Leicester’s title-chasing team if he wants to go to the Euro 2016 finals.The 31-year-old midfielder will play no part against either the Republic of Ireland or Bosnia in his country’s friendlies over the Easter weekend after being left out of the squad for the first time in ten years.Inler has fallen from grace after making just 10 appearances and only three Barclays Premier League starts for the Foxes following his £5million summer arrival from Napoli, and with Claudio Ranieri’s men five points clear at the top of the table, the chances of him breaking into the side look remote.However, that is the challenge from Petkovic.He said: “It was not an easy decision to leave out a player with 90 caps, but it was a decision of the moment and it was a decision taken by me for the benefit of the team.“I spoke to Gokhan about this and a lot of people in the club as well, and they all know if the situation changes, if he plays more than he has been doing recently, there is still a possibility he will join the team again.“This is not only for Gokhan Inler, that is the idea for any other player. I want them to make it difficult for me to make decisions for Euro 2016.“If Inler is in full shape, he can contribute a lot to the team and all the players have got used to having him around.“But there is always a chance for other players to show themselves and to take over part of his role. That’s how football goes.”Asked if Inler regretted his decision to join Leicester, Petkovic added: “It’s not important to look back.“At this moment, he needs to focus on tomorrow and on today. You have to do today everything you can to be better tomorrow, and that’s what’s important for Gokhan Inler right now.”Like the bulk of Petkovic’s players, Inler is playing – or in his case, not playing – abroad, with Germany, Italy, England and Greece among their adopted homes.That is of benefit in as much as it allows the players to gain experience of different types of football, although the coach revealed it has its drawbacks too.He said: “The advantage of this situation is the players have the opportunity to learn a lot. They can cope with different styles of playing – that’s very good for the team.“The disadvantage is I have to travel a lot and I got a cold when I was in England the last time.” Gokhan Inler, who has 90 caps, was left out of their recent squad for the first time in ten years 1last_img read more
