“I decided to play Sergio Ramos in midfield right after Modric injury”

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti decided Sergio Ramos would play in midfield against Atletico Madrid just minutes after Luka Modric was injured. 22/04/2015 Upd. on 23/04/2015 at 00:00 CEST “With Ramos we are more comfortable from set pieces and throw-ins. Moreover, he has the quality to play in this position, he has sacrificed for the team. He’s done it very well, he was convinced he could lift the team from that position.” However, Ancelotti revealed: “I decided it minutes after Modric was injured. Sergio gives me convidence and raises the height of the team. We would suffer less from set pieces. It’s a decision just for today.  “I have thought, after that game against Barcelona (when he played Ramos in midfield last season) many had killed me. After I continued working, thinking they would kill me again, but I am still alive. It’s an idea that I had to be more solid from set pieces. That will come as a blow to the likes of Asier Illarramendi, Sami Khedira and Lucas Silva, who hoped for the chance to replace the Croatian star in the Champions League.  “He has sacrificed for the team and understands that it was important for us to avoid those set piece problems.

Powered by Firework Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ hero, Robert Pires has urged the Gunners to consider signing former Tottenham Hotspur star, Gareth Bale, in the summer. Pires told Bale to forget Spurs and instead move to their bitter rivals. The forward, who has fallen out of favor at Real Madrid has been touted for a return to the Premier League coming June. Advertisement Bale moved to the Bernabeu back in September 2013 after exploits in the Premier League with Tottenham impressed La Liga giants, Real Madrid. However, the Welshman has hit yet another injury setback in the Spanish capital and concerns over his future with the Blancos have been increasing considerably, with interim manager Santiago Solari preferring to choose 18-year old Vinicius Junior over the former Spurs ace.Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea have continuously been linked with Bale, but Arsenal legend Pires believes the 29-year old winger should move to the Emirates. Undoubtedly Tottenham will be interested in re-signing their former player, but the former Gunners star believes the Wales international will be “very welcomed at Arsenal”.Advertisement “You can see that Bale is an unhappy player at the moment,” Pires added.“There’s an assumption that he would go back to Tottenham, but I would encourage Arsenal to open the door to the Emirates for him.Advertisement “I hope the club tries to see if it is an option this summer.”Read also:-Arsenal ease past Southampton to reclaim the fourth position in the Premier LeagueChelsea ease past Tottenham Hotspur to stay in the top four race Advertisementlast_img read more

Arteta set to be named as Emery’s replacement at Arsenal

first_img RELATED STORIES Freddie Ljungberg has been in charge of Arsenal since Emery left but results have not convinced and the club have decided to look elsewhere rather than keep the Swede in charge on a short-term deal.  17/12/2019 Emery lasted 18 months in the job but was sacked earlier this season after going seven games without a win. That led Arsenal back to Arteta, who played for the club in his playing days.  Javier Villodres The Sun released images of Venkateshman and Fahmy leaving Arteta’s Manchester house in the early hours on Monday morning after a two-hour-long meeting. Manchester City, where Arteta forms part of Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff, are said to be furious about being kept in the dark.  Arteta was in the running to take over at the Emirates when Arsene Wenger stepped down, although the Gunners went for Emery in the end.  However, despite an announcement thought to be incoming, City insist they have still not received an official approach from their Premier League rivals, who they beat 3-0 at the weekend. Guardiola, though, would not stand in Arteta’s way. “If it happens, it happens,” he has said.  Upd. on 18/12/2019 at 16:54 CET Fichaje inminente de Mikel Arteta por el Arsenal Mikel Arteta is set to be appointed at the new Arsenal coach imminently, according to a report from the BBC.
