It’s Friday and a long weekend is fast approaching. What else do you need? The breakfast news, of course. Served hot and greasy for you.
From our parents’ point of view, we always feel « small ». Apparently, Lionel Messi always listens to his father’s words when it comes to transfer decisions. As ‘fussballeuropa.com’ reported, Jorge Messi doesn’t want his offspring to return to FC Barcelona, but to go to Saudi Arabia. How come?

Uhh, the sting seems to be still deep. As José Mourinho recently revealed, he’s still not quite over the Tottenham Hotspur sacking: « I hope Tottenham fans don’t get me wrong, but the one club I haven’t close tie is Tottenham. » explained ‘The Special Un’ and continues:
« Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid, Manchester United – I feel a connection with all of these clubs except Mr Levy’s club. » Levy’ means Daniel Levy, 60, current chairman of Spurs. He had released Mourinho in April 2021 just days before the League Cup final. Did Bayern perhaps take this decision as an example? Who knows.
It can go so fast. After Yann Sommer was only signed by FC Bayern Munich for the winter break, his time with the record-breaking champions seems soon to be over.
According to the kicker, the 34-year-old is traded to AS Monaco, Villarreal FC, Valencia FC and English clubs Manchester United and Leicester City. The ex-Gladbacher had been criticized several times in recent weeks. If Manuel Neuer regains his old strength, it seems unlikely that Sommer will remain FCB’s number one.
Manchester United will play in the Champions League next season. The Reds beat Chelsea 4-1 last night and secured their ticket to first class.
The win also means Liverpool will have to settle for the Europa League for the first time since the 2016/17 season.
