Ballack tips Petr Cech for a successful managerial career

first_imgNow that it’s going to be official by the end of the season, Michael Ballack expects Petr Cech to pursue a managerial career after his retirement.The announcement of retirement that Petr Cech made earlier this year was a shock to a lot of people, but former teammate Michael Ballack is already looking ahead of his friend’s career and expects it to take a desired turn into a manager’s role.Although it may still be early to talk about this in detail as we have no idea what Cech would prefer doing after he hangs up his boots, the German Chelsea legend was very adamant on describing the best qualities that the goalkeeper has that can help him become a world-class manager.For starters, Cech has gone through several moments of adversity during his career as a goalkeeper and that has shaped his strength of character and mentality.Petr also speaks several languages, which is something that has proved remarkable for any manager who hopes to coach any major club in European football.The goalkeeper also has a huge legend on his shoulders to rely on when he has to deal with top players in any squad, nobody would dare to doubt his career as a professional and that has proven to work very well with the players of the new generation.It’s almost as if the manager’s seat was calling for Petr Cech once he goes through the proper studies, at least that’s what Michael Ballack thinks.Cech will make a good manager – Ballack – https://t.co/9sgQPeALtm pic.twitter.com/vbhSxIfXKu— Official_footballmeal (@OFootballmeal) January 24, 2019“He’s a very nice guy and comfortable team-mate. He speaks a lot of languages, so Petr had a good connection to a lot of players,” Ballack told Omnisport via Four Four Two.“He was a very important person for the atmosphere in the dressing room. He had a great personality and was a big leader with a natural authority.”“The team accepted him, because of his appearance and his performances. With his retirement, football is losing a big personality. I’m sure that he will be staying in football, because he’s always thinking a lot about this sport. Petr will influence football with his big influence.”“I remember that he had two brutal injuries. One was during a game, when he got hit by a knee on his head,” Ballack said.“The result was a very heavy head injury. Cech is still playing with a head protection and has a plate in his head. It was unbelievable how he dealt with this mentally.”“Just after that he had a brutal injury in training, when he got studs in his face. He didn’t hold back in this situation without any fear.”“He got big cuts in his lower lip. With a surgery, this was covered pretty well. For me as a teammate, it was brutal to see how a goalkeeper is suffering two heavy injuries in a very short period.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“He dealt with this so well mentally. It’s impressive what you can achieve with mentality and positivity.”🏆 4 x Premier League🏆 4 x FA Cup🏆 3 x League Cup🏆 1 x Europa League🏆 1 x Champions [email protected], a true Chelsea legend. 👏— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) January 15, 2019Petr Cech has been a major influence for English football in the modern era, he is considered one of the best goalkeepers in Premier League history and had a long successful career at Chelsea where he won most of his accolades.The traumatic head injury was sustained when he was defending the Blues’ colors, something that has marked his career forever and even improved him as a player in many different ways.Today, Cech is playing his last games as a professional goalkeeper for Arsenal FC, he hopes his retirement can come with a trophy but he may not have to hold his breath for that one.Regardless of how Petr’s career will end, there are still other options to consider and becoming a professional manager could very well be one of them.We will be eager to know what the Czech goalkeeper decides in the end, he may follow Michael Ballack’s advice or he may just decide to go on a completely different path.At this point, only Petr Cech knows what will happen to him after this season.”The squad is good, but not good enough for the top”In an exclusive interview, Michael Ballack gives us his verdict on Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri#CFC play Tottenham tomorrow in the second leg of their #CarabaoCup semi-final⚽️ pic.twitter.com/sOYe381vSi— Omnisport (@OmnisportNews) January 23, 2019What do you expect Petr Cech to do after he hangs up his boots?

Maradona explains feud with FIFA

first_imgThe Argentinean legendary footballer says that FIFA hasn’t changed a bit under president Gianni Infantino and they treat players “like dogs.”As one of football’s historical players, Diego Armando Maradona used to captain the FIFA Legend’s programme.But former Argentina national team footballer and FIFA World Cup champion has said that the football’s governing body mistreats players.“I sent a letter to [FIFA president, Gianni] Infantino in which I resigned from (the post of) being captain of (FIFA) legends,” he told Sky Sports.“Since [former FIFA president, Sepp] Blatter and [former Argentina Football Association president, Julio] Grondona left, FIFA hasn’t changed a bit. No change,” he said.”“They put us [in a hotel room] with [former Dutch player, Marco] van Basten and another player. And they treated us as if we were little dogs that only needed to be fed and that’s it. A total lack of respect.”“That’s why I resigned. And now, I will start revealing what I know about this new FIFA,” he explained.The now Dorados de Sinaloa manager in the Mexican second division also took a jab against FIFA’s deputy general secretary Zvonimir Boban who he challenged to a boxing fight.Lautaro has a better start than Argentina’s greatest legends Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After his impressive exhibition vs Mexico last Tuesday, Lautaro Martinez officially surpassed the start of Argentina’s greatest legends.We truly can’t stress enough incredible Lautaro…“Also, I would like to say to Boban that if he wants to look good, let’s go to a [boxing] ring. He shouldn’t have come to the hotel and got angry,” Maradona said.“The worst part is that Boban was sent by someone. And this someone is Infantino. I am not a 20-year-old kid, I am 58. It hurts me because I believed in these people. Now I don’t believe them anymore.”Under Maradona, Dorados made it to the final last year, only to lose against Atletico San Luis. Right now his team is dead last in the Mexican Ascenso MX standings with only two matches played, both lost, and zero points.Regresó Diego Armando Maradona a #LaPecera ‼Galería completa aquí ➡ https://t.co/PpnZfezqlO#ConElPezHastaElFinal pic.twitter.com/Q3tHnmLi6A— #ConElPezHastaElFinal (@Dorados) February 1, 2019last_img read more
