Neymar and fateful head shake with Real Madrid

Neymar and the trip to Madrid
In March 2006, the AS newspaper, through a number of close sources, confirmed that Neymar, then a 14-year-old boy, soon wore a Real shirt. This is similar to the story of Lionel Messi, who moved to Barcelona at the age of 13. However, the problems related to the Brazilian striker are more or less different.

At that time, Neymar took a flight to Madrid with his father, Mr. Neymar Pai and his representative Wagner Ribeiro. The Samba supercenter once successfully brought Robinho to the Bernabeu, and this time he wanted to bet Neymar against the Spanish representative.

The striker born in 1992 stayed in Madrid for 3 weeks. He visited the Castilla training facility and quickly impressed with the Infantil A youth team coach, Jesus Gutierrez. “His talent is amazing. He has more outstanding things than the other boys in the academy, ”Mr. Gutierrez said.

Among young talents such as Dani Carvajal, Pablo Sarabia, Alex Fernandez, Fran Sol, and Neymar soon showed talent. “Everyone agrees with making Neymar a club player. Our kids also applaud him, ”Mr. Gutierrez answered excitedly.

Normally when the academy welcomes new recruits, the children here will show jealousy. The first thing they used to say was, “This kid is not as good as people say.” But for Neymar, it’s a completely different story. “Coach, this boy is amazing. So cool, “they said.

Neymar quickly integrated with the youth team, played well, even scored many goals. It seems that the Brazilian striker feels happy in Madrid. In an interview with ESPN, the talent for South America could not hide his emotions: “It was like a dream and Real still had something unreal to me,” Neymar said.

Coming to Real, Neymar met the stars of the soccer village like Zinedine Zidane, Julio Baptista, Ronaldo “fat”. On March 26, 2006, Neymar was invited to the Bernabeu to attend the match between Real and Deportivo. I really like and want to stick with this place.

The mission broke down
A few days later, Real decided to sign a contract with Neymar for a period of 5 years. The agreements were agreed by both parties. However, Samba striker did not appear in the Infatil A youth team to Barcelona. Neymar decided to return to Brazil, and the deal broke down.

Pai then explained why his son rejected the royal team because he felt sad and lost his simple happiness during his time in Madrid. Neymar misses his home, friends, family, Santos and even misses meals in his homeland.

Mr. Pai said it was not easy to refuse large sums of money and new life in Spain. However, Neymar wants to follow what his heart desires. At that time, many people criticized the Brazilian striker’s choice. They said that this young talent missed the opportunity to wear the most prestigious big man in Europe. Or rather, Neymar lost the opportunity to decide his whole life.

Despite this, Mr. Pai still believes in what his son pursues. Money does not buy happiness like people say. Happy with him and Neymar is still the Da Silva family in Brazil.

On the Real side, they responded to the failure of the Neymar deal in a different direction. And it is about money between the two. The South American striker’s agent wanted more than 60,000 euros to accept the deal. The sporting director “Los Blancos” then agreed. However, some members of the club management refused the fee.

On the side of Santos, the club’s chairman, Marcelo Teixeira, felt dissatisfied with the event in Spain. “As soon as we heard of the Madrid deal, we immediately phoned Neymar’s father. We offer 5 more years of contract, salary increases and everything for the Neymar family, ”he said.

Not stopping there, President Santos also contacted lawyer Marcus Motta, who informed and revealed to FIFA about Real’s access to Neymar. And finally, Mr. Teixeira and his home team won the Spanish representative in the fight to retain Neymar.

In addition, Mr. Teixeira played an important role in making Neymar refuse “Los Blancos”. At that time, the talented young South American father and his representative Ribeiro phoned Wanderlei Luxemburgo (the old coach at Real) to persuade President Santos to take him from Madrid.

And when Neymar took a flight to Brazil, he signed a new contract with his hometown team. This is the official information about the broken contract between striker Samba and Real.

In the fourth round, Kobe Bryant started directly with Carmelo Anthony. The Lakers legend is constantly making mistakes, fighting hard with Melo to put psychological pressure on.

Corey Crawford received no respect from Chicago Blackhawks

Corey Crawford has earned more respect than he has received from Chicago Blackhawks fans. Crawford has been the mainstay of this team for many years, and perhaps it’s time he should have his own path.

Corey Crawford will always be part of the Blackhawks team until he decides to hang skates and start his own career. We cannot blame him for the unworthy incidents this past season. With his performances, he has shown that he is still able to play well at a higher level and higher. If it is not for these unintended incidents, Blackhawks could have created playoffs a few seasons earlier.

Crawford helped make a good Blackhawks team great during his time in Chicago. He was the mainstay of the two Stanley Cup titles and was stolen from a Conn Smythe in 2013. After that, it was annoying to hear people criticize Crawford and say he only got those championships because his team is in front of him. And now, it is even more annoying.

Corey Crawford has proven himself over and over for the Chicago Blackhawks. He will not ask their entire limited space to stick for another season. He is a valuable member of this core and the reason they sneak away with the victory over Florida Panthers.

There are many people who like the unique and distinctive Lehner style of play. We have the right to hope he has a long and successful career wherever possible. Currently, it is sad that whenever Crawford plays, Blackhawks fans are always aware of the mistakes he makes during the season and quickly forget a great save he made.

It’s hard to convince everyone that Crawford really doesn’t fit the Blackhawks over the next few years. However, the contract he signed this summer will do it. In the near future, Crawford will retire and leave the Blackhawks, like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Duncan Keith.

North Korea canceled the richest marathon in the country

The information canceling marathon in North Korea was confirmed by the travel company on 21.2. Koryo Tours, a Beijing-based company that organizes tours to North Korea and the official partner of the marathon, said it had received official confirmation that the 2020 Pyongyang Marathon was canceled.

This was due to the closure of the North Korean border and the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic in China, Koryo Tours added. Young Pioneer Tours, a company similar to Koryo Tours, also made a similar statement. The annual marathon was held in April as part of the birthday celebration of the founder Kim Il Sung’s birthday in 1912 and attracted curious foreigners who want to run through the streets of the city.

According to organizers, nearly 1,000 Westerners took part in the competition last year and had to pay up to $ 150 to enter. Earlier, North Korea had put itself in isolation to protect itself from the outbreak of COVID-19 in neighboring China, which infected more than 75,000 people and left more than 2,200 dead. Pyongyang has suspended flights, banned tourists and imposed a 30-day quarantine period for permanent residents.

Some analysts say North Korea is subject to international sanctions on ballistic and nuclear missile programs, while medical infrastructure is weak, and there is a shortage of drugs and equipment. chronic. Therefore, given the complicated situation of COVID-19, the North Korean actions taken are understandable.

The country has taken similar measures before banning tourists for more than four months from October 2014 to prevent the spread of Ebola virus, although no cases in Asia have been infected. North Korea has also been “closed” for 6 months during the outbreak of the Acute Severe Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) between 2002 and 2003, killing nearly 650 people across China and Hong Kong.

PSG still engulfed Marseille in the football derby

Couple Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe scored a brace to help Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) engulf rivals Marseille with a score of 4-0 in the French football derby in Round 11 of Ligue 1.

Welcoming Marseille without Neymar, Icardi – who was loaned by Inter Milan, once again took advantage of the opportunity to play when he made a double after 26 minutes. With 7 goals in the last 5 matches for PSG, the Argentine striker is gradually forgetting the presence of Neymar and waiting for Edinson Cavani to recover from the injury at Parc des Princes.
