Jordi Cruyff, Luca Zidane and Christian Maldini couldn’t become football super stars like their legendary fathers.

Johan Cruyff is a legend of Dutch and Barcelona football as a player and coach. Jordi Cruyff had a chance to prove himself at Barca and Manchester United but both failed. Johan’s son ended his 2010 career with Valetta in the Malta Championship.

Luca Zidane cannot step into the Real Madrid squad. He has yet to find a new stop after his contract with Los Blancos expires. Enzo Zidane, another son of the legendary Zinedine Zidane, also had a bad career. He was eliminated by Real and was diving in the Spanish second division with Almeria.

Paolo Maldini is a famous midfielder of world football. However, the oldest son of the legend, born in 1968, was not as successful as his father. Christian Maldini joined the AC Milan training facility but was dismissed for not meeting the professional requirements. Currently, England plays in Serie D (Italy Fourth Division) in the Pro Sesto shirt.

Romario is a legend of Brazilian football with a trophy collection at both team and club levels. His son also became a soccer player but was not yet successful. Romarinho started playing professionally in 2013 but changed 8 clubs. Each season, his appearances can only be counted on fingers.

Compare basketball and football to discover their differences

Many people say that football is a popular sport, but others say basketball is the best sport. To know the difference between these two sports, let’s compare basketball and football in this article.

The shape of the ball

Although both basketball and soccer use a ball made from leather or synthetic leather, their differences vary:

– Basketball is round and has good bounce.

– Football is also in a round shape but does not bounce as well as basketball. Football is designed to fly better in the air and is easier to catch. In addition, basketball is heavier than football.

Basketball courts are shorter and much narrower than football fields. According to FIBA ​​standards, the basketball court is approximately 28.6m x 15m (length x width). But according to NBA and NCAA, the standard size of a basketball court is 28.65m x 15.24m. Meanwhile, the size of a professional football field is 105m x 68m (length x width).

Indoor basketball courts are usually made of wood, while soccer fields use natural or synthetic grass.

Number of players

Both basketball and soccer are considered team sports because there are many people playing at the same time. Basketball teams are allowed to play with five players on the field at the same time, while soccer teams play up to 11 people at a time (almost double). Basketball teams usually have 12 to 15 players on the team, while soccer players can range from 50 professional players to 85 people.

Football and basketball have different playing styles because based on different rules. Football with confrontations and physical bumps on each occasion while basketball is a non-contact sport and, according to the rules of physical contact in basketball, is considered a violation that can lead to an error. Basketball matches have a higher score than football, although basketball teams are only awarded 2 to 3 points for an execution goal and 1 point for a free throw. Football level 6 points for one-touch, 3 points for a goal on the field, and 2 points for safety, but scoring goals is much less frequent than in basketball.

Duration of a match

The duration of a football match is significantly longer than that of a basketball match. Professional football matches will take approximately 90 minutes, while basketball games will last approximately 40 minutes at the professional level. It is important to note that both football and basketball have extra time, fouls, and breaks, which means that both of them last much longer than the main time specified in a match.

How Has Football Changed in The Last Decade? (part 2)

$ 250 million each to buy superstars

Yes, with that money, Real Madrid spent to buy the top players Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Kaka and Xabi Alonso 10 years ago. Now, that money is used to buy lesser-known players like Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy, Rodrygo and Reinier.

It is easy to guess that when the revenue increases, the transfer cost increases. According to Transfermarkt, there were only 3 transfers of more than $ 40 million in the summer of 2009. At that time, Real Madrid bought Ronaldo from United for $ 103.4 million and Kaka from AC Milan for $ 73.7 million. They also paid a total of $ 76.5 million for Lyon’s Karim Benzema and Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso.

However, in 2019, those amounts were only ranked 4, 12, 32 and 36. More specifically, the amount of Real Madrid spent on Alonso is equivalent to the amount that Valencia spent on 30-year-old reserve goalkeeper of Barcelona, ​​Jasper Cillessen, in June 2019.

PSG rise strongly

If you follow Ligue 1 for the past 8 years or longer, the league is always dominated by a team every year. It is unbelievable because 10 years ago, Paris Saint-Germain was more a concept than a candidate. Being in Paris alone has brought potential to PSG, like Chelsea before Roman Abramovich or Man City in England, but Parisians won Ligue 1 only twice (1986, 1994). And they were only twice higher than the 6th position in the 2000s. It was not until Qatar Sports Investments bought the club in 2011 that PSG became the dominant Ligue 1. They jumped from 13th to 4th on. in 2011, then second in 2012.

Similarly, Man City waited a long time before making a breakthrough 10 years ago. The Eastlands team was acquired by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008 and they only waited four more years for their first Premier League title. And then 3 more titles.

Similar but very different. Juventus returned from Serie B after being punished from the 2006 match-fixing scandal. They ranked 7th in Serie A in 2010 and 2011 before marking a period of dominance from 2012.

How Has Football Changed in The Last Decade? (part 1)

How has European football changed in the past decade? The answer is a lot.

Jose Mourinho is at the peak of his power

So does Inter Milan. At 47, Mourinho won the Champions League with Porto and two Premier League titles with Chelsea. He led Inter to the 2009 Champions League group stage, followed by the unimaginable in the knockout round. In the eighth round, they defeated his former team, Chelsea, will win the Premier League later. And after easily passing CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals, he sent a serious warning to the mighty Barca dynasty.

And Inter beat the defending European champions at San Siro, then stood firm after a trip to Barcelona with a 1-1 loss. This resulted in them reaching the Champions League final, where they won 2-0 against Bayern Munich to complete the treble of Italy: Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia.

A week after winning the trophy, Mourinho went to Real Madrid, where he and Pep Guardiola created one of the most intriguing confrontations that Barca-Real had ever witnessed. Even from 2010 and 2012, this is the biggest confrontation in the world and it started with Inter 3, Barca 1.
In contrast, Inter declined gradually after Mourinho left. They hold 2nd place in Serie A in 2011 but have not been higher than 4th place or reached the quarter-finals of the European Cup since. They are currently in third place this season when Serie A has been postponed by the corona virus.

Turnover of 91 million euros is considered good

According to the UEFA Annual Club Licensing Benchmarking Report, the Bundesliga teams had an average revenue of € 91 million per team in 2010, ranking second among the European leagues. However, in 2018, the most recent reporting time, the Bundesliga was only ranked fourth.

We still call Europe’s top five leagues Big Big. But in a way, it’s hard to say in a world where the average Premier League team earns (€ 272 million) the same amount as the La Liga and Serie A teams combined.

And while the UK continues to grow at a dizzying pace compared to any other tournament, the Big Five makes itself different from the rest of Europe. Although revenue has increased almost globally, the Big Five still grows an average of 83% and the rest of Europe is below 30%.

Erling Haaland from childhood tragedy to global phenomena

What makes a goalscoring machine at age 19? With Erling Haaland, it could be the childhood gray color, passion for football and serious labor attitude.
“Nobody thinks Erling Haaland can go this far,” said Gunnar Halle, a close friend of the Haaland family and a professional coach.

The Norwegian striker is now a global football phenomenon. Even in the digital age, there is rarely a young striker who broke many records like Erling Haaland.

Erling Braut Haaland was born in Leeds in the summer of 2000. His father, Mr. Alf-Inge Haaland was then a player playing football in England. Alf-Inge was the mainstay of Leeds United, the sweltering club of foggy football in the late 20th century.

One month before Erling’s birth, his father decided to move to Manchester City for £ 2.5 million. This is considered a peaceful landing for the Norwegian midfielder in the final phase in England. That’s when he continued to play in the Premier League for a middle-class club.

However, hope quickly became a nightmare for the Haaland family. In April 2001, in the Manchester derby, midfielder Roy Keane had a tackle described as “the most dangerous of all time” with Alf-Inge Haaland.

In that summer, Mr. Alf-Inge went to the operating table in the hope of continuing to play professional football. However, after 2 years of recovery efforts, everything ended.

The Haaland family returned to their home town of Bryne, a small town in Norway with over 12,000 inhabitants. Meanwhile, Mr. Alf-Inge started the real estate business for a living. Younger son Erling was encouraged to pursue a career in football.

Years later, the coaches at Bryne understand they are training a boy with enough potential to become a top star of world football. “It was Erling when he was 11 or 12 years old, he has been scoring goals ever since he was little. We knew this club would be the start of a star,” Berntsen said.

After creating a troubling final last season, the two giants of Argentine football, River Plate and Boca Juniors, are set to reunite at the Copa Libertadores.

Last season, these two giants turned the Copa Libertadores final into the focus of the world with troubles both off the pitch. According to the organizers’ schedule, the final match between the two teams in the previous season will take place at 3:00 on November 25.

However, Superclasico was unable to take place because the visitors’ bus was attacked by River Plate fanatics on their way to Vespucio Liberti. Bottles, stone bricks broke the glass door and injured Boca’s players.

After that, the final was postponed twice and forced to hold at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu to avoid negative developments. In Spain, there was no clash between the fans of the two teams. River Plate finally won the team with a score of 3-1 to win South America.

However, the match still has painful consequences. Exequiel Aaron Neris – a River Plate fan who was stabbed to death by two Boca Juniors fans shortly after the 2018 Copa Libertadores final.

Marca quoted sources from local newspaper Clarin, Aaron Neris, who had been attacked by two strangers and had his thigh artery cut. He was taken to the hospital but due to his injuries, the 21-year-old did not survive.

The Italian strategist is likely to replace Coach Allegri in the hot seat of Juventus this summer.

The destination of this 60-year-old strategist could be Juventus.

Tuttosport newspaper said the number one star of Cristiano Ronaldo team agreed with the appointment decision Sarri impressed with the philosophy of attractive attacking football.

Coach Sarri had experience working with many quality goals. Typically, the duo Gonzalo Higuain, Dries Mertens while leading Napoli and Eden Hazard at Chelsea.

Sarri’s appointment rumors created a wave of protests from “Bianconeri” fans on social networks. Many people think that the appointment of a coach is not a lot of risk is too risky for a club rich in tradition like Juventus.

Besides, Bayern Munich recently confirmed Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez will leave the club this summer. Bild reported that Ronaldo personally called to convince his former teammate to move to Turin.

The duo maintains a close relationship since they were in Real Madrid. Both have the same representative as Portugal’s Jorge Mendes.

Turin will experience a volatile summer after the departure of Coach Allegri. The Allianz Arena team is forced to close the name of the captain in the chair soon before setting the direction of development in the next season in the context of competitors are showing clear competition, most recently Inter Milan with the appointment of coach Antonio Conte.

This season, the Portuguese superstar made 31 appearances in Serie A, scoring 31 goals and 8 assists, helping Juventus win the national championship but unable to realize the goal of the tournament. Champions League.

Ronaldo started for the night of the Dragao Stadium with a free-kick into the corner of the goal, leaving goalkeeper Yann Sommer on the spot. Swiss guard of the temple misjudged the ball so he could not make it back to prevent Ronaldo from kicking.

Fun facts about English football

In England, football has always been considered a national identity, it shows the spirit and position of this country in the world. Football has always been a topic to discuss lively, sometimes bringing joy and regret to me and the British people.

For someone who is knowledgeable about England and football like me, I will reveal more interesting things about this sport. It is noted that a carved image of a ball near the medieval city of Bristol, and the first soccer shoes belonged to Henry VIII, who made a pair for his collection in the year 1526.

At first, football was a rather violent sport compared to today. However, in the past few decades, football has evolved from a violent sport to a sport of speed and technology, attracting the participation of highly qualified players.

The development of football also reflects the social change taking place in England. In the 1970s and 1980s, football fans and police all liked violence, which was the result of non-industrial processes and rising unemployment in the economy. Today, the picture of English football has also become brighter, the football fields from Cambridge Temple Bournemouth have also become more attractive.

Exciting debates broke out in pubs all over the country on the cause of losing the match in penalty shootouts against the Germans. It has been suggested that since the Premier League Football League was established in 1992, television companies have made billions of pounds from buying broadcast rights.

However, instead of sharing the profits, private companies began buying local clubs and hiring foreign players to increase the attractiveness of English football. Therefore, football is no longer funded by people and no longer attracts local talents. Is that why we failed at the shootouts? I don’t think so, but this will be a topic to debate when you come to England next time.

Steven Gerrard returned to training with the Liverpool football team

Former Liverpool captain asked coach Jurgen Klopp to train. He touched so many thanks to his former team during the American Football League break to prepare for the new football season. Steven Gerrard is considered a legendary figure living at Anfield. Before joining Los Angeles Galaxy last summer, the British senior midfielder has 17 years to contribute to Liverpool team 1.

After nearly two decades of dedication to “The Kop”, Gerrard played 708 matches, scoring 186 goals and helping the club win 10 titles, most notably two FA Cup and 1 Champions League titles. Gerrard’s training and his former teammates took place in the rain. Many people joked that Gerrard turned the sun from California to rain on Merseyside.

According to Independent news, in addition to the plan to practice with Liverpool to maintain the physical foundation, Gerrard is also said to be trying to negotiate back to the old team. Meanwhile, some sources said that Gerrard could sign a short-term loan deal to help Liverpool at the end of the season.

However, coach Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the team has no plans to recruit Gerrard. Everything just stopped at the training sessions. The former Liverpool captain took a picture with The Kop fans while attending the Swansea win 1-0 over the weekend.

In a recent interview, Gerrard insisted that he was excited to practice with his former teammates. The former England international also believes Liverpool’s playing style has changed a lot compared to Brendan Rodgers. Liverpool of coach Jurgen Klopp is making drastic changes this season about thinking of playing football with the goal of winning the championship.

There was no need to wait until beating Huddersfield 1-0 with the game that Liverpool chose not to rush to attack in most of the match. They do this to preserve the score, so fans will see “The Kop” this season differently than they were in the past.
