Sports Bet Online Talk: Zinedine Zidane
Zinedine Zidane, nicknamed “Zizou” was an elite playmaker known all around for his legendary ball control, technique and the vision of the game. The legendary star has capped a total of 614 games in his entire career and has been involved in many successful teams, such as Juventus and Real Madrid winning almost everything with the teams which includes a UEFA Champions league, a La Liga, a UEFA Super Cup, two FIFA club world cups and many individual football awards. After retiring from football in 2006, he went on to persuade his managerial career starting with Real Madrid where he went on and did the unthinkable when he leads the team to a 3 in a row Champions league finals victory, making the team the first to do so on more than one occasion. On this day 2019, he is still managing the team after being recruited once again after a very disappointing 2018-19 La Liga season. Will the legendary star be able to bring Real Madrid back on top? Fans are definitely hoping so.
Another former Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese footballer born on 5 February 1985 is doubly the best player in the world but one of the world’s highest paying athletes and the most hardworking footballer everyone has ever seen. A teammate of his once said, “Cristiano invited to come over after training. I was really tired, at the table there was only salad and plain white chicken and water- not any juice and after he finished, he stood up and started playing with a ball and said, ‘Let’s do some two-touch’ after two touch, he wanted to do some shooting and shooting after he wanted to go swimming. That’s Cristiano Ronaldo.” The star played for Sporting Lisbon before making a career changing move to Manchester United. In Manchester United, Ronado showed the whole world by scoring a whopping 84 goals in 196 caps. What an achievement for the teenager. Real Madrid at that time saw the Portuguese talent and didn’t hesitate to make a world record deal at that time of 80 million dollars. If you think Ronaldo did amazing in Manchester, he did even better in Real Madrid by scoring more goals than games played for the team. The star is currently playing for Juventus where he is still banging in goals and working hard as ever.
Huge rival of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi is also one of the generation’s best we have ever seen. The Barcelona star makes football seem like a walk in park with his amazing skills, perfect vision and his capability of scoring 419 goals in 419 games. Born and raised in central Argentina, the star now has a tragic background story during his rise to fame. When he was young, he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. Fortunately for the Argentinian, Barcelona saw his talent at the age of 13 and agreed to pay for his medical treatment. Since then, the fees have been worth every penny as he is now the Captain and the club’s leader inspiring kids from every corner of the world. Despite winning countless trophies with his childhood team, Messi has yet to win a domestic trophy with Argentina. The closest he has been to a trophy for his home country will be the 2014 World Cup where he was 120 minutes away from winning bringing back home the big prize. Sadly, he hasn’t been to match the performances he produces at Camp Nou (Barcelona’s home stadium). At the age of 31, he may still have a couple more years to prove his haters wrong.
Lionel Messi himself have fans all around the world, but a player which he faced twice on the European final hates playing against but also been impressed by his work on the pitch. This player Wayne Rooney, also known as “Wazza” by teammates of his is one of the most underrated player ever. England’s and Manchester United’s top goal scorer, an overhead kick goal against their biggest rival, a hat trick on his debut on the European… Wazza has so much to offer with his winning mentality and strong physique, he has even won every trophy that can be won in the whole of England. What an achievement. The partnership of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo was extremely deadly as they annihilate past defenders all across England while winning the hearts of Manchester United fans.
Rising stars are the face of football in the coming future, one of the promising talent right now is the French superstar Paul Labile Pogba. The player have been heavily criticized by the media recently due to his bad performance during big games and his immature behaviour on social media. On an interview for France, the player has told the media that he would love to work for another manager and has been linked away from the club, which worries most of Manchester fans as Paul is one of their star players in the team. Despite all these criticism, you cannot say he’s not one best players in recent football. This season, he has bagged himself a staggering 13 goals and 9 assists across 35 matches for Manchester United being the top goal scorer as a Midfielder. There is debate that this is due to forwards in the team not playing well enough but that is not enough to write off the Frenchman who recently won the World cup 2018 with France. There’s a video that went viral showing Paul giving a motivational talk to all his French teammates before the game. This leadership, talent and skills Paul have is unique and we cannot but expect more from him.
Marcus Rashford is a player of Manchester United and former teammate of Paul, given the chance to debut for the first team by Louis Van Gaal at the age of 18 years, 3 months and 28 days old. The manager also gave debuts to youngsters such as Jesse Lingard, Timothy Fosu Mensah, Anthony Martial which are also rising stars for the club. Marcus made an instant impact to the team by scoring 2 goals on both his UEFA Europa league debut, Premier league debut. He has also scored on his first Manchester Derby, first League cup match and UEFA Champions league match. Fans of Manchester recognized him ever since, knowing the name of Marcus Rashford. The homegrown talent has proved himself by working hard every day with the influence of his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo which footsteps he attempts to follow. He has been also involved in a crucial part for the rebuilding of Manchester United’s recent downfall. Hopes are high on these players to bring Manchester United back on top where they should be as the greatest team in the world. The future of football looks promising with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.
