    Guardiola sure Silva’s staying at Manchester City, says there’s no PSG bid

    Pep Guardiola is adamant Bernardo Silva will stay at Manchester City beyond the end of the transfer window, revealing that the club were yet to receive a formal offer for him.

    The versatile midfielder had been strongly linked with a move to LaLiga giants FC Barcelona after stating that Manchester City “know what I want” earlier this month.

    However, recent reports suggested Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) had made a 59 million pounds (69.7 million dollars) bid for the 28-year-old.

    He scored the equaliser in Manchester City’s 3-3 draw at Newcastle United last Sunday.

    Silva impressed as he scored 13 goals and added seven assists in 50 appearances for Manchester City last season.

    But Guardiola did little to play down talk of a move when he revealed the midfielder “likes FC Barcelona very much” this week.

    But speaking ahead of Saturday’s fixture against Crystal Palace, Guardiola offered his clearest declaration yet on Silva’s future, insisting: “He will stay here, absolutely.

    “We didn’t have any phone calls from any club regarding Bernardo Silva.

    That’s why he will stay.

    ” Asked whether any late move for Silva would leave Manchester City in a difficult position as they attempted to source a replacement, Guardiola said: “Yeah, but I tell you, he will stay.

    ” Manchester City have added Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, Sergio Gomez and Stefan Ortega to their squad since winning their fourth English Premier League (EPL) title in five years in May. Also, Julian Alvarez has arrived from River Plate, and Guardiola is more than happy with their business.

    “I am always satisfied,” he declared.

    “Now I start my seventh year [at the club].

    I am always satisfied with the squad I have.

    I have no complaints.

    ” Meanwhile, marquee signing Haaland, who has found the net three times in his first three Premier League outings, is set to visit former club Borussia Dortmund.

    This has come after Manchester City were drawn to face the Bundesliga outfit in the 20222023 UEFA Champions League group stages.

    Manchester City will also face Sevilla and FC Copenhagen when their continental campaign kicks off.

    However, Guardiola says he is yet to discuss the trip to Dortmund with Haaland, adding: “I didn’t speak with him, but I guess he will be happy to go back where he was so important.

    “The draw is the draw, it is what it is.

    We don’t have much time, but we have time to start to know them more deeply, and hopefully we can go through.

    Neymar says Messi has nothing to prove to anyone

    Neymar says Messi has nothing to prove to anyone Messi Berlin, Aug. 1, 2022 Brazilian forward Neymar insists club teammate Lionel Messi has nothing to prove to his critics in his second season as a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player.

    Messi had an underwhelming first campaign with PSG following his move from FC Barcelona, scoring 11 goals in 34 games.

    This was down on the 38 scored with Barca the previous year.

    The Argentina captain assisted 14 goals, though, 10 of which came after the turn of the year.

    Only Barca’s Ousmane Dembele (11) has managed more across Europe’s top five leagues in 2022. The 35-year-old impressed in his first competitive outing of the 20222023 campaign on Sunday as he opened the scoring in PSG’s 4-0 Trophee des Champions win over Nantes.

    However, when asked if that display is a sign of a new Messi at PSG, Neymar leapt to the defence of his colleague.

    “I don’t think so.

    I think people talk too much,” he said.

    “They don’t know what’s going on every day, what’s going on inside.

    “Leo, it’s Leo. It’s still Leo, it doesn’t change.

    No, he continues to make the difference.

    He adapts.

    “It is obvious that we hope that everything goes well for the three of us, for me, for Leo, for Kylian [Mbappe].

    If the three of us are well, I’m sure it’s good for the team.

    ” Neymar scored twice after Messi had opened the scoring in Tel Aviv and Sergio Ramos was also on target as PSG won their first silverware under Christophe Galtier.

    The Parisians have now won 11 Trophee des Champion crowns, including nine of the past 10 editions of the competition.

    Neymar, who also created a game-high three goalscoring chances, is pleased to have started the new campaign —- his sixth with PSG —- in style.

    “I’m satisfied.

    We had a very good match with the team,” he said.

    “It’s very important to start winning and it’s a match that ends in a trophy.

    Zidane

    Berlin, June 23, 2022  Zinedine Zidane has not ruled out taking over as head coach at Paris Saint-Germain or following Didier Deschamps as France’s national team coach, amid growing speculation over his future.

     

    Mauricio Pochettino’s departure from PSG has not yet been finalised, but reports have linked both Zidane and Nice boss Christophe Galtier to the job.

     

    Zidnae stepped  down in 2021 as a two-time LaLiga and three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid.

     

    He would assume either role as a highly-decorated coach, having also enjoyed an exceptional playing career.

     

    In an interview with L’Equipe to mark his 50th birthday, he indicated he would not turn down the opportunity to coach the fiercest rivals of the club he supported as a child.

     

    “Never say never,” he said. “Especially when you are a coach today, but the question is moot.

     

    “This is absolutely irrelevant. When I was a player, I had a choice, almost every club.

     

    “As a coach, there are not 50 clubs where I can go. There are two or three possibilities. This is the current reality. As coaches, we have much less choice than players.

     

    “If I go back to a club, it’s to win. I say this with all modesty. That’s why I can’t go anywhere. For other reasons, too, I might not be able to go everywhere,“he said.

    Zidane led France to win the World Cup in 1998 as a player which propelled him to winning the Ballon d’Or award.

     

    He was also given a straight red card in the 2006 World Cup final after head butting Italy’s Marco Materazzi.

     

    “I want to [be head coach of France], of course. I will be, I hope, one day,” Zidane said. “When? It’s not up to me, but I want to come full circle with the France team.

     

    “But really, this is the pinnacle. And so, as I experienced that and today I am a coach, the France team is firmly rooted in my head.

     

    “When I say that I want to take the France team one day, I assume it. Today, a team is in place, with its goals. But if the opportunity comes next, then I’ll be there. (

    My debut goal against Bordeaux FC most memorable at PSG – Okocha

    Nigeria’s football legend, Austin Okocha, said his debut goal, an equaliser against French side, Bordeaux, was the most memorable during his time at Ligue 1 giant, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

    Okocha said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria during the unveiling of So Klin as PSG’s official Regional Partner in Lagos.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Okocha was signed by the Parc des Princes from Turkish club Fenerbahce in the summer of 1998 at a record fee of 18 million dollars, making him the most expensive African player at the time.

    Okocha, reflecting on his time at PSG, said the transfer to the French giants had successfully raised his worth as a player, an experience he was grateful for.

    “PSG is a club that really touched my life and raised the bar for me. In 1998, I was approached to join PSG and I can say that my former club Fernabache made it difficult to leave.

    “The club made it difficult because I just renewed my contract with them for three years. So, they didn’t want to release me to PSG.

    “For me, I see the contract as a lifetime opportunity and PSG as one of the best clubs in the world. So, I was interested and I had to leave for PSG even before the negotiations ended,” he said.

    Okocha stated that his goal against Bordeaux remained the most memorable in his four-year stint in French Ligue 1.

    “I can remember joining PSG without pre-season trainings and I did not immediately play until the fourth match.

    “I was on the bench against Bordeaux and we are losing by 0-1, five minutes to the end of the match, the coach, Alain Giresse, called me to play and I scored a fantastic goal.

    “After the goal against Bordeaux, the club knew that I was ready for the challenge,” he said.

    Okocha, a household name for his football skills, also said playing for PSG exposed him to playing alongside other great football stars, which helped him to improve.

    “While I was at PSG, I played alongside great players like Ronaldinho de Gucho, Nicolas Anelka and the present manager, Mauricio Pochettino, among others.

    “I had a great experience at PSG and that is why till today, I am one of the ambassadors of the club and I feel so fortunate.

    “The partnership between PSG and the brand, So Klin, is so important because they are both great brands and I can say that the partnership is here to stay,” he said.

    NAN also reports that Okocha, during his playing time at PSG, won the 1997-98 Coupe de France.

    He played a total of 84 games for PSG and scored 12 goals across all competitions.
