Manuel Pellegrini will stay in charge of Manchester City for the next season

This season was one to forget for Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City as the team failed on winning any major trophy but despite not being able to lift any pieces of silverware, it seems like the Chilean manager will continue coaching the Premier League club.

It’s believed that Manuel Pellegrini has already met with the chairman of Manchester City, Khaldoon al-Mubarak and everything seemed to be in order.

Pellegrini had to travel over to Canada in order to plan out Manchester City’s post-season tour and also spent some time with the chairman who flew in from Abu Dhabi as he attended the final match of the season which was played against Southampton at their home turf at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola was one of the managers who was consistently being linked with the coaching role at Manchester City but the Spanish tactician has not shown any signs of leaving Bayern Munich.

Even with all the rumors that are linking Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp and other top notch managers with Manchester City, Manuel Pellegrini says that he is confident about how this season ended and the Chilean manager has no doubt about his future.

Luis Suarez has taken a swipe at his Real Madrid

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has taken a swipe at his Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo by saying that the Portuguese is not at the same level he has been for the last few years.

Ronaldo is leading the race to become the top goal scorer in Spain. He is ahead of second placed Lionel Messi by a couple of goals. His recent hat-trick against Espanyol in the 4-1 victory has been a major turning point in the race for the Golden Boot award. However, Messi is likely to end up with much more trophies than Ronaldo after the Argentine has already completed the league title with Barcelona.

Madrid, on the other hand, will be only left with the likes of the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup that they won at the start and the middle of the season. At 30 years of age, Ronaldo is at the wrong end of his career and Suarez has only accelerated his perceived decline by suggesting that the Portuguese has lost a lot of magic in recent times. Ronaldo has won the last two FIFA world Player of the Year titles, but he is still behind Messi. The Argentine holds the all-time record after having won this title four times.

Alvaro Arbeloa has claimed that it is wrong to doubt the professionalism of Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa has claimed that it is wrong to doubt the professionalism of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been one of the best players in the world over the last five years.

Since the turn of 2015, Ronaldo has encountered a slump in form by his standards. After averaging more than a goal per game in the first half of the season, Ronaldo has been struggling for consistency. He did maintain his impressive record in the El Clasico by scoring against Barcelona recently, but it did not prevent Madrid from losing 2-1 against their arch rivals.

Ronaldo has certainly not helped himself with visible signs of unhappiness when his teammates take advantage of his misses to get a goal for themselves. However, Arbeloa has compared Ronaldo with Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano as being the most important aspects in the club’s history. Speculation has been intense that Madrid may be willing to discuss offers for Ronaldo in the summer. The likes of Paris St Germain and Manchester City may be the only clubs that can afford the 30-year-old, but the possibility of him rejoining Manchester United has also been mentioned. Ronaldo has scored 40 goals and created 13 in 33 appearances this season. Read more Alvaro Arbeloa has claimed that it is wrong to doubt the professionalism of Cristiano Ronaldo

Carlo Ancelotti not concerned after bad form of Ronaldo

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti states that he is not concerned about the dip in form suffered by Cristiano Ronaldo over the last few weeks. Just over a month ago, the Portuguese superstar held in 12 goal advantage over Lionel Messi in the la Liga goalscoring charts.

This advantage has been reduced to just two due to a combination of Ronaldo going on a barren form and Messi on an unstoppable run. Ronaldo has missed two matches during this period due to suspension. Since his return in the 4-0 thrashing against Atletico Madrid, he has not scored in back-to-back matches.

As a result, the spotlight is on the 30-year-old ahead of the Champions League knockout match against Schalke. The German club will be warned enough about the Portuguese, who performs extremely well when he is often questioned. The form shown by Ronaldo appears to have translated to Real Madrid as well. The Spanish club had a strong advantage in the la Liga race going into the winter break, but now the lead has been cut to just one point after 23 matches. Ancelotti is keen to rediscover the winning feeling starting with the European encounter. Schalke’s recent poor run of form will give Real Madrid a lot of confidence.
