Dider Drogba the striker from the Ivoy Coast has rejoined Chelsea after a few years gab. He is already 36 or may be 37 years old . Was it wise to bring Dider Drogba back to Chelsea again at this age and in this form he is in .We saw him at the world cup 2014 played in Brazil, so let us be honest he has long since passed his prime.He was a shadow of the old. Now Fernando Torres is up for sale, Samuel Etoo is gone, and to be honest Jose Mourinho must be regretting paying Atletico Madrid 32 million pounds for Diego Costa one of the maiin flops of 2014 world cup. The last kick Dider Drogba had for Chelsea was scoring a penalty kick in the Champion League. Now Frank Lampard has joined M.L.S in the U.S.A and Ashley Cole has joined A.S.Roma. He will come cheap but the weekly salary will still be high. If you ask me it is a bad buy, but it appears Jose Mourinho is desperate for a striker.
The Italian coach Claudio Ranieri who has the pet name of THE TINKERMAN, as he changed the players so often. He was manager of Chelsea, Juventus, Valencia, Monaco Parma, Fiorentina, Calgary, Atletico Madrid . Just a few of the many clubs he has managed, he was a success at some clubs we can not say he was a total failure as he did win trophys as well in Spain and in Italy. He was sacked from Chelsa and he poccketed four million pounds as compansation, he was sacked at Monaco and he collected another four million pounds, so with the other clubs he might have made about thirty million pounds, as he is often sacked. Now he has taken over as the coach of the Greece team, as Greece have sacked their Braziliancoach Santos after the world cup. The point I am making is he is a lucky man, even after getting sacked he finds a job soon.
Over the years footballers were got for a huge amount but failed very badly indeed. 1) Fernando Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool for 50 million pounds.But scored 20 goals only. 2)Juan Sebastin Veron, joined Manchester United from Lazio, for 28.1 million pounds.But flopped so so he was sold to Chelea where he flopped again. 3)Andrei Shevchenko joined Chelsea from A.C.Milan for 30 .8 million pounds. But failed to shine like he did at Milan. 4)Bebe. Joined Manchester United from Portugal,for 7 million pounds, but failed to score a goal. 5)Stuart Downing was got for 20 million pounds. But failed terribely. 6)Jonathan Woodgate was got for13 million pounds, but was always injured at Real Madrid. 7) Michael Owen joined Newcastle united from Real Madrid for 16 million pounds , but scored 26 goals in four years. 8) Andy Carrol joined Liverpool from Newcastle United for 35 million pounds but was a super flop , he now plays at West Ham United, he is out for four months again injured.
Jose Mourinho is having a major problem, about keeping both the goalkeepers happy at Chelsea. Both stuburnly do not want to be the second number goalkeeper at Chelsea. Both Petr Cech and the Belgian goalkeeper Thiabaut Courtios are both very , very good . But last season Petr Cech conceded more goals to ThiabuatCourtios, while Petr Cech played for Chelsea, Thiabuat Courtios was given on Loan to Atletico Madrid, and they did win the Spanish La Liga. I wonder who will be willing to play second fiddle to who.
Arsenal are now willing to offer a total of nine million pounds for the winger from Portugal Luis Nani. The new coach of Manchester United Louis Van Gaal has told him that he has no plans to play him in his team, and he is a surplus at the club. So Arsenal are bound to gain here, as they can get their player for a very low price indeed , I would say it is peanuts. And another point in Arsenal favour is that he is only 27 years of age, but even being a good player he lost his way due to the two managers who refused to give him a starting spot in matches.Another case of a footballers career ruined by managers. But Luis Nani is also wanted at Juventus and also at A.C.Milan.
