It’s a new episode of “Off the pitch”. Dana is back with a new episode and she will review the latest trends, rumors and news in the football world.
Diego Costa’s contract was terminated
Costa just finished his second spell in Madrid. It’s time for the striker to move on and look for a new club. Actually, there are many news and rumors that suggest the next club of Diego Costa. Keep in mind that Diego Simeone wanted to save the striker even for this season but the striker himself wants to leave Europe.
Keep in mind that the 32 years old striker is the main person responsible for the contract termination. He was the main man who said that extending the contract is not in his target of 2021. Also, Diego Costa decided to not train with the main squad anymore and that was a clear sign for everyone.
Rumors suggest that Diego Costa may stay in Europe and sign a contract with Arsenal. Keep in mind that Arteta’s team is in a bad run. Yes, they could change the situation a little bit and win two matches in a row but it’s not enough for the Gunners. Arteta announced that the team will sign strikers during the winter transfer window. Rumors suggest that Costa could be a perfect fit mentaly and in a motivational point.
PSG, Tuchel and Pochettino
As you may know, PSG sacked Tuchel from the position of main coach of the club. German coach was in this position for a few years already. Under his management, PSG could reach the final of the Champions League. Unfortunately to PSG fans, the team lost the final game of CL against Bayern Munich. Tuchel was sacked and now rumors say that Pochettino is close to signing a contract.
Where is Tuchel going? There are many questions. English tabloids write about Lamprad’s future. Journalists of the Premier League wrote about Abramovich’s interest in Tuchel. As the rumors suggest, Lampard already knows about his situation and he may be sacked after one little mistake. Keep in mind that Chelsea has a bad run in the Premier League recently. That’s why Roman is not happy with the coach and he wants to replace the team’s legendary former player with Tuchel.
Pochettino is getting closer to PSG. The owners of PSG want to give a big chance to Mauricio. He was not in football for more than a year. After his departure from Tottenham, Mauricio is free for a new job. His patience is worth it because he may get a chance to work with Neymar, Mbappe and even Lionel Messi. As you may know, Messi wants to leave Barcelona in summer and he may join Neymar in summer.
