Ancelotti set to be confirmed as new Real Madrid boss

According to reports in Spain, Premier League outfit Everton FC may be set to lose their manager Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid are preparing to re-appoint the Italian.

Zidane fires back at Madrid, says Perez didn’t support him

French manager Zinedine Zidane has proven beyond doubt that he's one of the new era managers to look out for in the forthcoming years although some schools of thought are not yet fully convinced by his managerial prowess.

Marcelo dropped from team after a furious row with Zidane

According to reports, Marcelo has been dropped from Real Madrid's squad for the crucial La Liga game against Granada on Thursday due to a training ground row with manager Zinedine Zidane. Their fellow title contenders and league leader Atletico Madrid won 2:1 against Real Sociedad on Wednesday night and this means that Los Blancos must claim all three points away to Granada to keep their title hopes alive. Five points separate the two city rivals presently, and the exclusion of Marcelo from the team sheet ahead of the game called for concern especially as his fellow full-back Ferland Mendy is out for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, a report by Goal claims that the Brazilian's absence is due to a furious clash with Zidane during training on Tuesday. They added that the 33-year-o...

Real Madrid reportedly set to offload Hazard

Rumors are rife that Real Madrid are ready to cut their losses as they prepare to let go of Eden Hazard. The 30-year-old attacker joined Los Blancos from Chelsea in 2019 in a deal worth £103.5m. The Belgian was highly rated at the time and had established himself as one of the most exciting players in the Premier League and Europe as a whole. However, he has failed to replicate his Chelsea form at Madrid and therefore failed to live up to expectations with his time at Real Madrid thus far being blighted by recurring injuries under Zinedine Zidane. It was hoped that Hazard would help in replacing Cristiano Ronaldo after his departure to Juventus but this hasn't been the case. The Belgium international has made just 40 appearances for Los Merengues in all competitions and has just 4...

Can Chelsea show maturity and make Hazard and Courtois regret?

The clash between Real Madrid and Chelsea will see a Los Blancos side with a squad that have vast experience in these stages of the UCL come up against a squad with relatively no experience in this stage of the competition in the Blues.

The new-look Chelsea side who saw some new additions in the summer were whitewashed 7:1 by Bayern Munich in last season's UCL round of 16 under former manager Frank Lampard but have improved since then. They are currently managed by Thomas Tuchel and have done well in the competition but must now beat an experienced Zinedine Zidane-led side and eliminate them fr...
