Arsenal have not beaten Manchester United in the last 1300 days and this bad run extended after a 2-1 loss at the Emirates stadium.
Kieran Gibbs scored an own goal in the second half before Wayne Rooney punished Arsenal with yet another counter-attack. The solitary goal from Arsenal came from Olivier Giroud, who made his return from injury. The Frenchman has been sorely missed in the last few weeks as Danny Welbeck has not been able to step up with a similar goal return. The former Manchester United striker once again failed to find the back of the net despite having some good chances.
Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Kaka says that he will be cheering on for his former team in the latest Milan derby.
Inter and Milan will be taking on each other on Sunday with both teams coming into the match with different attitudes. Milan appeared to be extremely confident of success in this latest Milan derby a week ago. However, Inter have responded to the poor form they have shown under Walter Mazzarri by sacking the manager. Former boss Roberto Mancini has returned to the club and it has provided them a huge lift in the last few days.
Former Brazilian midfielder Kaka recently made his second debut for São Paulo, as he prepares to spend the next six months on loan at the club where he began his career. After recently signing for MLS outfit Orlando, Kaka has decided to spend the next six months on loan at São Paulo in order to keep up his fitness. Orlando will not be taking part in MLS until the 2015 season. The presence of Kaka has helped São Paulo rediscover the form with especially striker Alexandre Pato being in the goals once again.
If you are a fan of Switzerland football, you would be really disappointed to hear that Ottmar Hitzfeld, the manager of the national team, has quit.
Hitzfeld was tactically one of the best managers in Brazil. Barring a group game against France which Switzerland lost by a big margin, he was spot on with his moves in every match.
Hitzfeld is not going to take charge of any other team in the future. He has actually put a full stop on his coaching career.
Just 12 months after joining AC Milan, it looks like Brazilian superstar Kaka will leave the Italian club and return to his homeland. Kaka has been heavily linked with a move to São Paulo in the last few days. The latest comments from the Brazilian club’s president appears to confirm that the 32-year-old is on the verge of completing a move. After moving to Real Madrid for a then world record transfer fee of £ 62 million, Kaka struggled with a lot of injuries and form. He finally ended his Madrid nightmare by returning to Milan last summer.
The managerial position at Ac.Milan is currently being filled by Clarence Seedorf as he replaced Massimiliano Allegri some months ago but it remains unclear if the Dutchman will continue being in charge of the team at the upcoming season.
Rumors are being spread around linking Carlo Ancelotti and Luciano Spalleti to take up the hot seat of the Italian club. Ac.Milan has a final league match scheduled to be played against Sassuolo on May 18.
AC Milan returned to winning ways after a 2-1 win over Genoa on Monday night. This result means that Clarence Seedorf’s men have won three consecutive matches, which has seen them rise to 11th place in the table.
Even though they still remain far away from even thinking about Europa league qualification places, midfielder Kaka says that the club are slowly starting to find their feet under the new manager. There were even rumours in the last few weeks about Seedorf being sacked before the end of the season and being replaced by former striker Filippo Inzaghi.
AC Milan star Kaka has given his backing towards under pressure manager Clarence Seedorf, who is on the verge of being sacked only a few weeks after taking over the managerial reins from Massimiliano Allegri.
Seedorf is one of the celebrated players at Milan, but his return to the club’s manager appears to be on the verge of ending. He took over from Allegri only a couple of months ago when the team were on the verge of getting into the top 10 of the table. However, a disastrous run of form has seen Milan slipped to 12th in the table.
Manchester city had accepted an amazingly high bid of £100m for Kaka. Garry Cook, who is the chief executive of Manchester City, has alleged that AC Milan has bottled the deal in order to bring Kaka in the Premier League Club.
The chief Executive Officer of AC Milan, Adriano Galliani, has lauded Kaka for putting up a number of top class performances for the club over the years and has rated him as one of the club legends.
Kaka’s current tenure at Milan is his second one. His first tenure was 6-year long which came to an end in 2009. He played close to 200 league matches for the Italian club during that period and scored 70 goals.
