Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante

Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante

Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante
Antoine Griezmann was jeered during his last game for Atletico Madrid and Rodrigo might have scored his final goal for the club as they came from behind to draw 2-2 against Levante in La Liga on Saturday.

Griezmann received whistles at the City of Valencia Stadium from the visiting fans, who were also heard chanting “out, out, out” before goals from Sergio Camello and Rodrigo ensured Atletico at least ended the season with a draw.

Diego Simeone has dismissed fears of a mass exodus, despite both Diego Godin and Griezmann already announcing their departures, with the likes of Rodrigo, Juanfran and Filipe Luis all expected to follow.

If this was to be their farewell outing for Atletico, it was an underwhelming finale as Levante, who only secured safety from relegation last weekend, claimed a deserved point.

They might have been disappointed not to take all three after leading 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Erick Cabaco and Roger Marti before then playing against 10 men for the best part of 40 minutes after Angel Correa was sent off.

But Atletico fought back, Rodrigo firing into the top corner before 18-year-old substitute Camello scored his first goal for the club, finishing at the back post.

Griezmann was unable to add to his tally of 133 goals in 257 games across all competitions in what became a bitter end to his five successful seasons for the club.

Godin was given a rousing goodbye ceremony at the Wanda Metropolitano last weekend but the timing of Griezmann’s announcement, perhaps deliberately, meant he avoided a last meeting with the Atleti fan

But those that made the trip to Valencia were determined to make their displeasure known and it was noticeable that Griezmann made a swift exit after the final whistle.

Camello, born in Madrid and a product of Atletico’s academy, delivered a more positive message for the future and a timely reminder of Atletico’s ability to endure in recent years, despite the departures of their biggest stars.

Levante took the lead through a brilliant opener from Cabaco, who flicked in with the back of his heel after a header back from Ruben Vezo.

Roger doubled the advantage shortly before half-time, intercepting a loose pass from Thomas Partey before skipping over Rodrigo and firing past Antonio Adan, who was standing in for the injured Jan Oblak.

Atletico’s task became more difficult when Correa was sent off for a petulant kick on Chema but Rodrigo gave them hope with a stunning strike into the top corner, before Koke’s shot fell kindly for Camello at the back post.

Real Madrid 'complete Signing Of Eintracht Frankfurt Striker Luka Jovic In £52.4million Deal'

Real Madrid 'complete signing of Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic in £52.4million deal'
The Spanish club, Real Madrid have reportedly completed the signing of Serbian and Eintracht Frankfurt striker, Luka Jovic for £52.4million.

According to Sky in Germany, the 21-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Spanish giants, which will earn him £43.7m (€50m) in total a year.

Frankfurt will pay Jovic's former club Benfica around £10.5m of the transfer fee.

The striker joined Frankfurt on loan from Benfica in the summer and last month the Bundesliga club exercised their option to make the move permanent.

Take this Airtel Airtime:- 0852-2446-1299-2451

Jovic has scored 17 goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances this season and 10 more in the Europa League.

The signing of Jovic would bring the number of new additions to Zinedine Zidane's squad for the 2019/20 season to three. Porto's Brazilian defender Eder Militao agreed to a move to Bernabeu in March, while Santos forward Rodrygo Goes will join up with the squad after agreeing his move last year.

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

The Brazilian legend, Rivaldo, has adviced Gabriel Jesus to quit Manchester City this summer so as to get more regular playing time elsewhere.

Recall that Grabriel Jesus joined Man City from Palmeiras in 2017 and his current contract will be active until 2023.

The 22-year-old striker has actually featured in 46 competitions this season but started just 20 of those, scoring 19 goals as his side retained their Premier League and Carabao Cup crowns but slided-out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.

Although Jesus described Manchester as his "home" in January, but latter in April he admitted that he has been frustrated by his fluctuating role in Pep Guardiola's team.

Read Jesus' statement:
 "I always want to play. Of course it frustrates me but in a good way, it makes me want to train and work hard... I have always made it very clear that I always want to be with the team."

"As a young prospect he could continue and keep evolving with Guardiola, hoping that more chances come, or he could leave for another club of similar stature to try to become a regular starting 11 player.

"I see the second option as the best solution. He already gained experience and maturity at City and looks prepared for a new challenge in a team where he could be more important for the team."

Neymar Banned For Three Matches After Insulting Referee During PSG’s Defeat To Manchester United

Neymar Banned For Three Matches After Insulting Referee During PSG’s Defeat To Manchester United

Neymar hit with 3-match Champions League ban for telling VAR officials to
Neymar has been banned for three Champions League games by UEFA after “insulting match officials” during PSG’s defeat to Manchester United.

The Brazilian was watching the second-leg of the dramatic round-of-16 tie from the sidelines, where United defeated PSG 3-1 at the Parc des Princes, having been ruled out through injury.

But in a social media post after the game, Neymar explicitly criticised the controversial last-gasp penalty awarded to United for handball against Presnel Kimpembe.

Neymar wrote in an Instagram handle:

'This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.''

''There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back! Go f*** yourselves!''


As a followup to the above statement, UEFA’s disciplinary committee has released an official statement, it reads:

"The CEDB has decided to suspend the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior for three (3) UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting match officials."

This implies that the £200m star player will miss half of Paris Saint-Germain's group games in next year's Champions League
