"A billion is trying to do. But it's a long way from here to there. But it's that's that's an one bit of the equation. I could see might be working. Yeah it's scarcity the close league and i think that's the single biggest influence on all of this. Now it is funny for me to see like mls at one point said we're going to stop at thirty teams that actually they said twenty eight and thirty. Now they're saying thirty two you do wonder how high they go. I can see them going to forty teams and having an mls one in an mls to or even the forty team league with two conferences and eastern west. Like they do now like they're in a much better spot obviously than they were ten fifteen years ago and one thing i have to remind myself. Is that while it seems crazy to me. Mls teams are being valued at eight hundred billion dollars. That's still quite a bit. Less than teams are valued in baseball. Nba nfl even ice hockey. I have to think about it in those terms to write fifa again going to be something that i've shamelessly nicked off wikipedia which is my second research. But there's a lovely. There's a quite we've got just a gawronski by this. So we've got in february twenty eleven while announced a possible bid to become present afifa in the upcoming election to unseat incumbent set blatter but pulled out before the official deadline after failing to an endorsement owner of a football association as a result of walls bid fief amended its presidential nomination process by requiring endorsement of five associations. So just what was going on there. That sounds like a fun afternoon but cup of coffee. Yeah it was fine. Because i remember in early twenty eleven. That was right after. I remember december second twenty. Ten was this hugely historical day for fi. Fi think that was when they awarded the world cup to russia for twenty eighteen and qatar. For twenty twenty two. And i think that was the day that the world saw the people running fee and had maybe suspicions in the past about whether it was clean organization but that was the day that their lack. I no longer have suspicions about this. And and i knew there was an election for the fee for president. Coming up in twenty eleven set ladder was running for reelection and most of the time. This place fever that describes itself as a democracy has only one candidate elections. And i remember talking to a friend of mine gab. Marcatti who's terrific journalist based in the uk. And i asked him. I was like because he and i lived in a house together with a couple of other journalists at the world cup south africa. I remember asking him. Can anyone run for for president. And he looked up the rules and he was like looks like it. All you need is one federation to nominate you..

"To the show. Now shall we get marcatti. Gabbay try and get the latest of what's going on between brazil and argentina. I suppose the first question is where is the phone who is being blamed for this. We try to piece it together on the cabin. Joe show with excellent gustav hoffman from from. Espn brazil wrote about up on the website. It's incredibly complicated. The short answer is a lot of different. Parties are to blame the brazilian health surveillance service. I think that's a shoulder. Some of the blame the argentine. Fa those two in my opinion based on the facts. We have right now. They shoulder most of the blame but at every stage you can go back and you can find others are also responsible comparable the brazilian fa. The brazil's own government and federal police. All these all these people when you look back. There's things that they could have done differently. But for me the two main indictments were. There was no need to go and run onto the pitch and that theatrical way in which they did and the other thing is far as the argentine. Fa is concerned regarding the owners for reporting from gustavo hoffman. There was a meeting the day before they felt. They had an agreement in place with a brazil sanitation service and then afterwards they were told very very clearly that these players if you simply leave them in the hotel if you don't send them out onto the pitch we're going to go and sort this out after the game and the game can go ahead and still. They didn't do that to me. That is it's inexcusable. But that is certainly why. I hold the argentina fe more responsible than some of the other parties. I do say some because from what. We've seen the brazilian survey health surveillance. Authority serving. didn't covered themselves in glory either. I don't think many alley on komo bingo card. Would it have had this situation unfolding embarrassing really really embarrassing. And i've seen some things in common. Yes believe me. When i tell you that i've seen some things that you kind of go off and we got to be better than this. But this is such a poor reflection on comic all on on brazil and not hindi now into federations on even on the health ministry the fact that they have this guy just kinda walkout there as scheduled said theatrically on the field that this was not resolved prior to getting to the stadium that he didn't get to a point in which would have said listen. Look this is what's going to happen. This is what we're going to do. And this are the solutions that are in place and this is how we're gonna resolve it instead. We go on me. The elbow deep. Hey everybody warm up. Let's get ready a ha. We're all excited. Here's a starting line of illegal. We're excited in all right. No it's not happening that just show so poorly for those of us that are from south america. It's it's just sort of thing that you just kinda go come on. We have to rise above this sort of things. We cannot have this sort of behaviour because he's reflects poorly on our people on how we do things how carry yourself and how we do government on how we do. Kobe protocols reflect so poorly on everybody. And really i mean if there was anything that you point the finger and say men how embarrassing ten. It'd be embarrassing. Yeah it was just awful decision after seven minutes yes. It's the big i am. We're going to do and i'm going to stand here. Hey guys and now he comes up with the bad and the thing it's the whole thing was just so clearly embarrassing. Listen i'll tell you who should absolutely region players because they've they've clearly the clubs didn't want them to go and they've a stand and said i'm playing for my country not fair released the t- the f. Should have made shoot. Every single thing was in order before these stepped on a plan. Not just get on the plane avenue. Borough ray don't worry about it to know if i'm if i'm martinez. I'm going by villa. And i'm going to have to mess games no missing game when then even get to play or because my made a complete mess of this. Say if i'm one of those players. I am region knowingly martinez as well of course a number of spurs players also included in this mess scab. Yeah no question about it and And remember that in the case of these players here. It's they didn't have the clubs permission to go. They didn't the club did need. They didn't need the club permission to go but obviously this puts them in a weaker in a weaker position. It should be said on the back. Of what allie said they couldn't they beforehand. Of course. I think this is one of the mysteries. And there's still a lot of stuff that we don't know what we do know. Is that on saturday. Twenty four hours before the game. They showed up at the argentina hotel. That is brazil's health surveillance officials and they had a meeting with the argentine. Fa with call me bowl officials and with officials from the brazilian fa and they said guys. We need to go and sort this out. What are we going to do when they left a meeting. Certainly the argentina fe calm ball and the brazilian fa again. This is all not my reporting is gustav hoffman's reporting. They felt that they had an agreement. They felt that they had defined agreement in place that they could go ahead and play the game and that after the match they would go and deal with the situation however the next day around three o'clock in the afternoon local time they drive around three hours before kickoff. The brazilian health authority puts out that statement. Saying that you know those four players will be deported. because they're not quarantining in the issued false statements and whatever and there's absolutely blindsided kabul. So the question here is both sides. You know i. It was a massive misunderstanding. After four hours of talking or one of those two two sides change their mind or or essentially is misrepresenting the facts and that was that was kind of the the real i blow with things that are different to taken a different turn. The second time was at the stadium itself. roughly a half hour before kick-off when the health people showed up with the federal police. I'm told argentina they said look we can still salvage situation. If these four players do not play if they're not in the matchday squad than you guys are going to be okay and we'll deal with it after the game at that point again. Reportedly the argentine. Fa said these guys are here. they're my players either. We all play our. Nobody plays and again and at that point. That's when the situation turned into the fires that we saw it's going to be so difficult to go and pick this because there's so many different versions of events and again it's sad but coma bowl. Basically passing the hot potato defense and say oh well fee. So you're responsible for this figure out how to sort this out and and sits an indictment of comparable to because they were the people responsible for organizing. This fast is most definitely the word they use that gab. So south stand income vote.

There is a law. That says the control of your fans in your stadium it is. Your responsibility is full and you will get fined for right and you're right. They should be fine. That's true. But i don't wanna i don't wanna make it sound like security that i mean i guess. Fans wound up on the field there. A failure of some sort happened. I just feel bad putting it on them. Because i just don't i almost in watching the video of it. I was almost relieved with the number of fans that wound up on there because he felt like once the floodgates open. Oh my god. How is this going to end. How many people are going to empty out onto that field and caused mayhem and at and wound up. Probably not being nearly as many as as what it could have been but the fact that had happened at all the fact that league is now dealing with this the fact that various marseille players like you said. I saw the well on pilots back. You talk about doozy You know the fact that marseille had to go through this yeah niece. It's their stadium. They need to be held responsible. So you're right. There should be a fine. But that's a tough spot for security man we've got. We've sorry to interrupt.

I wish he'd settle down. Stock even the broadway but he did put the cross in for one of the goals and He's had some. He's had some contributions two years for sure. Well we've said it. We said about him after the euro's that because he had another successful euros with with the swiss and so we said the time is now like he's not gonna be whatever he thought he might be when he went to liverpool any kind of focal point or consistent star clearly that ship had sailed and it wasn't going to happen but he's you know of an age where like it's now or never if you wanna be that guy on a team you gotta go and so this leon move been talked about for awhile and Yeah i'm kind of excited for him to see through. Because i you know i. I think he's a good player. And maybe not good enough to break through and be a regular starter for liverpool but He can certainly do a good job for leon so good for him. I think it's a good move for everyone right. Let's we should do rinaldo quickly because we gotta mail bag that you haven't seen is going to be. There's going to be carnage.

"Hello welcome into espn f. c k. Murray his craig burley. We're also joined by gut marcatti still outings. Alpine retreat and gems will be joining us too because we continue to talk about leeann messy and i want to start with you gob. After we take a look at some of the reaction in spain. I wanted to stay as what messy was saying. These are the boss alone at base newspapers. All of the cry with you mayo. But in paris well pretty happy and they are waiting with open arms. We've already seen some funds waiting outside the positive prints for the arrival of leonov messy book gap last time. You ron. we're asking around the panel and everybody said september. I did they see messy playing. Everybody said bustle owner. Do you still see it that way. Now i can't i can't figure this out right. Three things messy wants to stay. Barcelona want keep them and it's legal. Supposedly stopping them from doing it with salary cap rules but it's in the league as interest to keep him. It's weird because you're head tells you that he's going to stay but all the news. Everything says that he's gone. So i don't know i guess i'll believe he. You know logically. All these people are doing all this reporting and say you know he's going to have his medical blah blah blah on his way to parents and said he'd made his goodbyes. but man. this really makes no sense at all. I consume k. Is there's got to be a lot of stuff that we don't know a lot of stuff that's gonna come out about. Napata about the relationship was davis both going on with your on madrid. We've had hints already. John oldest that Founder media pro coming out and saying that seventy two hours ago. The contract was signed and ready to go. Personally define it. Something must have happened. I this new streets far from older. It is pretty mysterious. I'm sure there's a lot more than does the i. Craig but all signs point to paris. Felino messy right now. The do and the management of this club has been and this really annoyed me ever since they would and you know. I'm going to sit here. The the martin braithwaite from lagaan his their relegation struggles ho law vest. Bunch of reprobates stooped and the annoyed meet times club with so much clo- but but that's how they've been running this business recently poorly sharply and you have all these other players coming in. Well say saying having saying ham but what about the main and yeah get. Upset is emotional. I didn't see the press conference by a handlebar. And i'm sure it was from the har i can understand up because listen i'm not comparing but we've all been at clubs in. We're not left chelsea. After nearly ten years. I wasn't emotional tight football club but it was more leaving. Some people get for ten years a decade right now. There'll be people at boston loaner. That he's got such a report with this is not just about the club in the fines is about people behind the scenes not just the big styles is pure behind the scenes in the offices and the workers and the people in the contains and all that and restaurants the company that you form this relationship with weight off. I'm just amazed at the pilot between your career leila. I'm making a making a parallel with leaving and leaving people. That's the difference. I get the emotion of this education but the frustration. The he must feel the shabbiness of the management. Could you imagine thinking you were staying on at a club. You've gone into sign your contract to stay at that club and then you told actually for all roads leading. They're going to have to share a fortune on. Yeah they're getting a great player. Who's coming towards the twilight. It was korea but also getting a planet who's desperate to be in barcelona just say i'm saying he's not. He's not desperate to paris engine if he goes to patterson jim on a megani set here and suddenly sure fan interest and frankfurt.

"That is the sound of the barcelona. Faithful saluting their idol. Not after a game but after a press conference yesterday leeann l. messy the man many consider the single greatest soccer player of all time has declared that he is leaving the only club. He has ever know f c barcelona so today we examined a split. That is as stunning as it is mysterious because seemingly no one not the fans not the club and not messy even wanted him to leave. I'm pablo torre. it's monday august ninth. This is espn daily. So gabon coty. How long have you covered messy at barcelona or you're you're you're trying to date me now. Gab marcatti covers soccer. Espn from london and he also co hosts the gab in jewel show podcast but yes i was already professional journalist when now messy not just when. He made his debut for barcelona but when he left. Rosario tina twenty one years ago in fact it's gonna be twenty when you would have been twenty one years next month in september for barcelona and people are talking about him already and feel yesterday. Gab i mean what was so striking about what we saw at this press conference that he gave it was the emotion it felt like it was the most popular athlete on the arguably. Maybe the greatest soccer player of all time leo messi confirming that. He's leaving barcelona the club. He's been a part of whereas you say twenty one years since he was just thirteen years old and he was crying he was tearful throughout the and he said quote. This is very hard for me after so many years after being here my entire life. I wasn't prepared and gab. Given your knowledge of this man what was it like for you to watch that presser. So it's hard to divorce for me to divorce messy speaking from the larger story behind it and you know the thing about messy is. He has a very specific personality. This is a guy who who almost never talks. He's somebody who's been an art form of being shy. And is the sports boucher goes. He's a leader on the pitch. He's alpha that way not the other way. Whatever but you know. He is capable all these moments of motion. This is your and that was certainly very touching to me and my first thought went to an ira. This in my column was is your something truly messed up here. Being the world of sports square club really wanna keep him or they say they do messy really wants to stay. He says he does and the league. Which is you know who the salary cap which is supposedly the reason. They can't afford them. The league wants to stay because the league is less valuable especially now that they're trying to solve chunk of it to a private equity firm so veils elites in their interest room to stay yet somehow. He's leaving it just. I still can't my head around. I'm still hoping even now as as we record this he's supposed to be doing his medicals in paris in the next twenty four hours. I still kind of assume that this is all just one big bluff. I cannot take this as real and yet everything points to the fact that it is so gab. I want to try and sort through. What happened here because just to recap for people here as you've been alluding to we knew messy was upset with barcelona's management. Last year. we know that he had talked about wanting to leave the club but that felt like it was in the rear view mirror and then a few weeks ago there were reports multiple reports that messy in barcelona had agreed to this new five year. Deal with the exact figures not disclosed. But we know the previous deal with barsa was worth just under six hundred million dollars over four years which is mind blowing in its own right so we can assume the new deal would have been similarly so so. Why did that deal. That was reported. What's your best sense as to why that fell through the previous included all sorts of signing bonuses and loyalty bonuses and whatnot so to make it simpler his basic salary salaries probably just under a hundred million dollars And he took he took he took rhode just put it in context so obviously barcelona were were you saying they were hit hard by the pandemic. They're also incredibly poorly managed. The highest Wage bill in in the sport and on top of that in spain. There's this thing they call a salary cap. Which isn't a salary cap as we understand it in the states it's basically the league puts a limit on how much you can spend on salaries and to acquire players and that limit is based is different. From every club it's based on their projected revenue. And you can spend a percentage of that. I mean that's sort of the rough outline so every team has a different salary cap number which is very different from how it is in american sports where every team is subject to the same bottom line number precisely. That's a key thing to understand it's not about creating parody like it might be in the. Us it is fundamentally about creating sustainability a barcelona. We're never going to be sustainable. Barcelona's barcelona were set to pay salaries. One hundred ten percent of the revenues that salaries alone. That's before you get into admin cost. Travel costs everything else that it takes to run a club so clearly they had to make very serious cuts now as you alluded to messy. Took messy agreed. This deal on principle volley was away. He was playing in the copa america with argentina whereby he took a fifty percent pay-cut roughly to just under fifty million dollars and then all of a sudden barcelona came out the other day three days ago and said a well even with cut that he took. We won't be able to register him. We are over the salary cap. Hold on here because that much. That does not make much sense to me again as an outside observer here because theoretically i would imagine. Barcelona had its own budget in front of itself they had all of its accounting arrayed in front of it and they knew all of the numbers better than anybody right..

He's been a part of whereas you say twenty one years since he was just thirteen years old and he was crying he was tearful throughout the and he said quote. This is very hard for me after so many years after being here my entire life. I wasn't prepared and gab. Given your knowledge of this man what was it like for you to watch that presser. So it's hard to divorce for me to divorce. No messy speaking from the larger story.

"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty

Real Madrid win La Liga for 34th time

"Madrid are champions. Champions of Lollygag for a thirty four time this after they defeat be a real two to one. We're joined by Julian Iran and GAB MARCATTI JEWELS I'll start with you Real Madrid at the beginning of the restart. We said it was very likely they would have to win every single game to overtake Barcelona. They've done it and they've done it so easily clinched the league match still to be played. You're right and winds of ten, and there were two points behind boss, not when restarted Lalita. What six weeks ago, something and then they were just unstoppable. They may maybe not always the most. Pleasant towards attacking wise, but so efficient in both boxes so solid defensively. This is the best remedy defense for for the last thirty years, and that was always the plan from Sudan. Is Priority to win our league this season. He promised it. He delivered it and he did it in a very different way than the other titles before that club this this one was built on being very strong, defensively, being very well organized playing as a team and then relying on Wednesday march the goal. Benzene has been fantastic all season. And the defense has been fantastic or season to Wayne Gordon Veyron and says almost at the bag, the two full as well they've been. They've been pretty special I think and on these eleven heightened for eleven title in two hundred nine again. That's one i. told every Nineteen Games. He's putting credible down I don't believe you're all Madrid. Have trailed since the restart. How impressed with their? Performance. have been very good and I think even when people will flag up certain games where they got the rub of the green with with severe and whatnot by I agree with Jules, you look beyond that this is almost another level of around Madrid. It's almost as if when you think about it. The GALACTICO era is well and truly over in the sense that. Korean bedroom is tastic as he was he. He's an Galactico type as much as he is. A warrior hard hat tight you go through the team beaten hazard for most of the season Gareth Bale once again missing in action, other Michigan's on the bench. except for Tony Crows MoD modern as well off the bench a lot of the time we saw a lot of rotation. We saw a lot of grit. We saw a lot of efficiency we saw. I think aside of of Sedan, who previously was seen as just kind of like a a man manager, a guy who didn't necessarily get to involve not screw things up and just let the players play. We saw a guy who is actually very actively coaching when the injured guys came back. You've worked in back in and I. Think in some ways this might be the most satisfying. Of the of the titles that that's it down as one. Jewel so much has been made in recent days. Officials VR helping out Real Madrid even with your Barcelona ways. Will you discredit that argument here? Think, they were the best team all season really since the loss against my. Tober, I they. They've been on another level really in terms of. The results of course the way they were playing. Pretty much everything they did was almost perfect, and even with the pandemic and break they can by flying. As we said with those ten Wayne's, there were so well prepared far better prepare than boss or not folks up. What both fitness wise and tactically as well and I think Don deserves it off great. See Dan priority because he still feels that it doesn't get the credit deserves and what he did before in the past, lally, gainfully seventeen of research I'm visiting in a row that people never praised him enough really sort of our, but you've got Chris overnight. All you've got wet players and you've got a team that was winning before own that kind of stuff and I. Think this one for him will always be very special because he did it. Maybe as we sit in a very different way, but also him as a as a man as manager was very different, and the personal that you especially without Christianity was very different, and I think he will you take? I think far more prides in in many ways to of one this one especially considering that remedy warning since two thousand seventeen. The would always have a very special taste for him this one.

Chelsea's split season is a concern for Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea's split season is a concern for Maurizio Sarri

"Murcia sorry. And it's funny. There's this. There's this kind of like inflection point as to whether or not sorry has done a very good job so far for Chelsea or whether or not he's turning into a disaster. Not just with performances on the field, but probably more. So with with comments that he's making and just like bringing so much of whatever sort of backroom strife there is just like thrusting it right out into the public. And you can only do that. Once if you're looking for a reaction, a manager can only do that once right? If he keeps doing that. Well, at that point dressing room is known to I it's time to bring a new players right that that's it's just as simple as that so gap Marcatti was defensive of sorry, and what has gone on so far and Steve Nicol was not. And here's some of their conversation. Pep Guardiola finished fourth in his first season, you want something funny. Go look where you're gonna call up was when he'd have more time at the end of his first season Liverpool. This always happens if people do things differently sometimes they work, sometimes it works. And then we applaud them sometimes it doesn't work and then they lose their job. And that's what's going to happen to Saudi it doesn't if us job. But to go out and dismiss it. It didn't come on. You want pets? Name cintas, focus. It took responsibility spoke sensibly in through any of the boss. He didn't he didn't. Steve get away with this spoke sensibly thing about pet. God y'all because remember when he came out, and he said, what is thing China, we entire everything thing? Pet monkeys. Do you go? Football men, proper managers. Just get works. Great doesn't it? Yeah. That's right. That's right. Well. I agree with gab to the extent that somebody comes in football and those things differently. You're told conform straightaway. Pep didn't conform, although he did go out and spend three hundred million dollars on like fullbacks. But there is a certain on gab references. They're a proper football nine the guide the way to do things, and he has veered off it, and he's kind of cues and Stevie Nikola bean that guy I would say that gab is the very man quoted on this podcast last week who said the following the siree system works. Are you look for new manager meaning siree plays this way? It's not changing. That's just an inflexibility not so much that he's trying new things rather that he's committed with the old thing, and he can't change anything new. But that's way, you'll get the sack, but the problem I don't think is even necessarily if everything was the same like Chelsea right now are sitting fourth and they're preparing themselves to take part in a in the League Cup final. Like if all of that was the same and sorry was just behaving normally off the pitch. Then I don't think we'd really be having this conversation but St.. You heard Steve Nicol, they're referencing. The fact that sorry is turning them into a circus. That's where the problem is. I think people would be understanding of Chelsea situation. You know, a new manager he came in late doesn't have as players and yet look what happened. He just brought in Gonzalo Egoyan. They went five nil over the weekend and wing scores twice. So people would be understanding of Chelsea, and maybe even maybe even praised on after defeating Spurs over two legs to richly Cup funnel. But it's the fact that sorry we just played Craig Burley talking about how this managers come in pushed out arguably the best not arguably the best player on the team.
