Rome, Alisson is not touched. No to 40 million from Naples

The Giallorossi do not want to give up the Brazilian goalkeeper. Rejected a maxi proposal of the Neapolitans. You aim to keep it another season, less than crazy offers.

“Think big and you will be great”. His philosophy is all here, in this sentence that Alisson follows as a mantra. Telling him – from the first steps as a player – was José Agostinho, his father. And Alisson never forgets it. “I’ve always dreamed of becoming the Brazilian goalkeeper at a World Cup and I’ve always done that with that phrase in mind – said the number one in Rome at the magazine Undici – Since the first race I made up my mind to become one of the biggest goalkeepers ever of the Brazilian National team “. And, on balance, the result if it has not already been reached, is right there, around the corner. Certainly right now is one of the best numbers in the world. And if, as it seems, it will really be him to defend at the World Cup the door of a Brazil that aspires to take its revenge on Germany, then its value could really get to the skies.

The Offer – Yes, because Alisson is in his second season at Rome, but he has only been in since August. In all 8 months, in which the price of his card has risen high. Other than spread, here we are at the limits of the highest rises on the stock exchange. So much so that, last week, Napoli presented an offer to Rome (40 million) receiving in return a dry “no thanks”. And this is because Rome on Alisson wants to build at least another season (if not two). And even if he were to sit at a table with someone, he would start from different numbers. If not twice, almost. Considering that the Brazilian has been paid 8 million in 2016, this explains why he has an upward trend that would also drive Piazza Affari crazy.

The contract – Moreover, Alisson knows he has the eyes of the biggest clubs in Europe (Psg above all, but also Liverpool and Real) but he also knows he is still 25 years old, that for a goalkeeper are nothing. In short, not wanting to make a leap in quality, although obviously it would not disdain. But, of course, he expects an important signal from Rome. In short, if at the end of the year in Trigoria they will offer him a good contractual adjustment (today he earns 1.5 million euros) there should be no problem to go on together again. At least for a while.

Europa League, the moviola of Milan and Lazio

During Arsenal-Milan the race director Eriksson grants a non-existent penalty to the Gunners. In Dinamo Kiev-Lazio does not convince Gil Manzano: oversight on the hand of Boyko

Arsenal-Milan – There is a huge black hole in the direction of Eriksson: Arsenal concedes a non-existent penalty on indication from the additional Ekberg. From the series: how to ruin a match and direct the qualification. Perhaps it is the case that the Uefa accelerates the Var project because it is so badly misused: a replay was enough to notice the colossal topica. Welbeck collapses to the ground, late, after Rodriguez’s caress. Simulation evident to be punished with yellow and instead is rewarded with a penalty that puts the English back on track. Eriksson is not new to stuttering directions: yesterday was repeated even on small episodes. On the rest, just after 1-1 Silva turns to the door and the carambola ball on the knuckles of Chambers and then ends up on the arm (wide) of English: we are evaluating it involuntary. In the second half (still on 1-1) Silva always comes into contact with Bellerin in the area: doubtful episode and certainly here the penalty could also be there. Okay, instead, the yellow for simulation shown to Suso.

Dinamo Kiev-Lazio – The management of Gil Manzano is not convincing. At 25 ‘Immobile finds himself without a shoe when he falls in the area, for a touch of Burda on the heel but out of 16 meters: there was still no punishment, not assigned. The most serious mistake on 43 ‘: Boyko overtaken by the lob Immobile touches with his hands outside the area. It would have been punishment from the limit and red for the goalkeeper. Ignored also a tripping over Felipe Anderson penetrating the trocar at half-time.


Milan, Gattuso: “The referee can make mistakes like any other player”

The Milan coach is proud of his: “We showed great solidity, I liked the personality of the team”

Gennaro Gattuso can not be happy. He has also played in the United Kingdom (in Scotland, with the Rangers shirt in the ’97 / ’98 season) and has touched English fair play. He who did not want to believe when he saw the referee Eriksson indicate the spot on the 38th minute. His Milan took the lead at the Emirates Stadium and was putting pressure on Wenger’s Arsenal. Here, from here he wants to restart the Rossoneri coach. From the attitude of Bonucci and his teammates to three-quarters of the race: “I’m proud of my guys and the performance we did in this stadium, we lost the shift at home, what really made me angry is that we do not have to We must play 90. I am nervous about the final result: we must not give up like we did tonight, taking the 3-1 final “.

the penalty for the arsenal – A hint to the offense penalty, however, does: “The players are wrong and, therefore, the referees can also make mistakes.” I do not want to talk about their work tonight. Then a few words on the singles: “Kalinic did not do the preparation, when he is physically good he can give us a big hand, we have three worthy strikers, I will make them rotate, they just have to be ready and work very seriously”. Donnarumma was not precise about the second goal of the Gunners: “Gigio has to raise his head, it was a single episode, he must not be put off, he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. the rumors of Reina’s arrival or not “. The conclusion is aimed at the season finale: “There are no league matches and an Italian Cup final, we are a young team: we can certainly do more, we showed great solidity tonight and I liked the team’s personality”.

Milan, the tabloids against Welbeck: “He’s a diver”

The English press against the Arsenal striker: “Dan, rescue dive”

Yesterday’s Europa League evening is a resounding “spot” in favor of VAR: in Arsenal-Milan there have been at least three “suspicious” episodes, first of all the resounding penalty awarded to Arsenal Welbeck’s striker who has not era. Cases that probably could have been avoided with video assistance. No later than a few weeks ago, however, UEFA President Aleksandar Ceferin reiterated that there will be no VAR in the Champions League and Europa League next season.

The newspapers – English media very critical with the Arsenal striker, accused of being “a diver” as the Times headlined. On the same wavelength the Sun, which has headline: “Welbeck, storm for the dive”. Ironic the Daily Mail, which playing on the name of the player headline: “Dan, rescue dive”. The Daily Telegraph, on the other hand, reads: “Italian anger over a controversial penalty”. The Mirror turns directly to the disastrous Swedish referee Eriksson and writes: “He went on the ground a little too easily, referee”, clear the reference to Welbeck.
