“He needs to win the Champions League to complete his season,” Ronaldo said of Neymar. “He has played very well in the last few games, especially in this final phase in Portugal. “He has created many scoring chances, but he has lacked calmness to finish off moves. With luck and calmness, he can find himself scoring in the final.” Ronaldo, meanwhile, also believes Lionel Messi won’t be leaving Barcelona anytime soon despite reports suggesting he’s considering a Camp Nou exit. “It is very unlikely that Messi will leave Barcelona, especially with the financial crisis in Europe,” he said. read also:Don’t allow Lionel Messi to leave, Ronaldo warns Barcelona “Messi is the reference of the team and if I was Barcelona I would not let him leave in any case. “Messi has a very intense relationship with Barcelona, I do not think he will stop being in love with the team. He’s upset, of course, with how they were defeated in the Champions League. “Messi needs his team-mates to help him, as they do, and Barcelona will have to think of something different for the next seasons.

Real Madrid great Ronaldo believes the La Liga champions should sign Kylian Mbappe ahead of Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar. Mbappe has been tipped to make the move to Madrid at some stage in his career, with Los Blancos reportedly eyeing a 2021 transfer. Former Barcelona forward Neymar – who joined PSG in a world-record deal in 2017 – has also been linked to Madrid previously. But Brazilian legend Ronaldo, a La Liga winner with Madrid in 2002-03, prefers France’s Mbappe over countryman Neymar due to age. “Right now, it is not that one is better than another, but if Real Madrid had to make a big investment, they should do so thinking about the future,” Ronaldo said during a webinar hosted by Santander. “Neymar is 28 years old and Mbappe is 22. As an investment, it would be more logical to bring the younger [of the two].” Mbappe and Neymar are preparing for Sunday’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich in Lisbon. French powerhouse PSG will feature in their first Champions League decider, having dominated domestically. Neymar – who won the 2015 Champions League with Barca – and PSG have already claimed Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee des Champions in 2019-20. Loading…
Spurs are looking for a replacement for the sacked Andre Villas-Boas and former England boss Hoddle’s name has been linked. The 56-year-old sat in the White Hart Lane dugout between 2001 and 2003 and is currently without a club, having last managed at Wolves in 2006. It remains to be seen if Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants to give Hoddle a second chance, but he is willing to take any opportunity there may be. Speaking on Sky Sports 1, he said: “Do I want the job? Well I’ve had the job there once. “Tottenham Hotspur, you know I supported them when I was eight years of age. I went there at 12, left there at 28. Went back and managed. It’s in my blood. It’s in my bones. “If I was offered the job, yes I would want to go back, even if it was for the sake of the club. (Interim manager) Tim (Sherwood) is in pole position here.” Sherwood was taking the side at Southampton in a caretaker capacity and also wants a permanent position with the club. Hoddle does not know if he will, and would even be willing to bridge the gap until the end of the season if asked. “If he gets a good win today, and he moves on, and the club decides that whatever is right for the football club, and if they felt that they wanted me to go in until the end of the season even, they wanted something else long term, I would be prepared to do that because I love the club,” he added. Hoddle insists he has not been contacted by Levy, and added that he would be willing to work for the man who sacked him a decade ago. Glenn Hoddle wants to take the Tottenham job for a second time. Press Association “They’ve not offered me the job, so it’s all speculation, it’s all a bit of media hype,” he said. “It’s a different club completely this time. I think I had a squad that was ageing at the time, we were bringing free transfers in, we brought Teddy Sheringham and Gus Poyet in on free transfers. “This isn’t the same scenario at this club at the moment. It’s a completely different scenario to that. I think there’s a way forward.”

CARDIFF: British football club Cardiff’s appeal against a transfer ban with respect to the payment related to deceased Emiliano Sala has been delayed for the second time.According to a report in BBC Wales Sport, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) was set to hear the appeal this spring but has been delayed once again. Football’s world governing body FIFA had earlier directed Cardiff to pay Nantes the first installment of Sala’s total transfer fee of 15 million pounds. FIFA’s players’ committee, in November, had directed Cardiff to pay the initial amount within 15 days of receiving the bank details from Nantes or face transfer ban for three windows. Cardiff had challenged the ruling and the appeal was set to be heard by CAS. “The parties to the procedure have agreed to lengthen the regular time limits for the filing of the written submissions,” CAS said. “It is for this reason the exchanges of written submissions is still ongoing and a hearing date has not yet been set.” Argentine striker Sala passed away following a plane crash while travelling to join his new club in Wales on January 21, 2019, two days after both teams had announced the transfer. Cardiff has since maintained they aren’t liable to pay any transfer amount since Sala wasn’t their player when he passed away. The two clubs have been involved in a legal battle since with CAS expected to rule in the matter soon. (IANS) Also Watch: #NewsMakers: Bharat Bhushan Dev Choudhury, Sec.
