#Lockdown: “Football will be back with fans” – UEFA chief.

Published

on

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is confident “good old football with fans will come back very soon” despite the chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Domestic and continental club competitions were halted across Europe in mid-March due to the COVID-19 crisis and Euro 2020 was postponed. The Bundesliga made a successful return to action behind closed doors at the weekend and many other leagues are preparing to resume in front of empty stands, with Ceferin sure the situation will soon improve. Asked whether he would bet a million dollars that Euro 2020 would be played in 2021, the chief of European football’s governing body told the Guardian: “Yes, I would. I don’t know why it wouldn’t be.

 

“I don’t think that this virus will last forever. I think it will (change) sooner than many think. “I don’t like this apocalyptic view that we have to wait for the second and third waves or even a fifth wave.” Ceferin said football would follow the recommendations of the authorities but he was optimistic that normal service could be resumed in the near future. “I’m absolutely sure, personally, that good old football with fans will come back very soon,” he said. And Ceferin said he did not expect the game to be profoundly changed by the coronavirus.

 

“Football didn’t change after the Second World War or First World War, and it will not change because of a virus either,” he said.

Liverpool clinch monumental victory against Leicester City with a 3-0 victory

Published

By

Liverpool despite all odds came out tops in what was a totally dominating game against Leicester City.

 

The Reds showed why they are the defending champions with a superb display of attacking football even at the expense of losing six first team players.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Oxlade Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and top score for the Reds this season Mo Salh were all out prior to this game, due to injury reservations.

 

But Jurgern Klopp’s side still proved what they were made of with a scoreline of 3-0 against former champions Leicester City.

 

An own goal coming from Jonny Evans at the 21st minute opened the scoring for the Reds, while later on the first half Diogo Jota doubled their lead with a sublime finish that went past Kasper Schmeicel.

 

The Foxes did try to lunge at the Reds, but the defensive manuvers brought forth by youngster Curtis Jones blocked every tactic they used.

 

Jamie Vardy was totally frustrated throughout the game, as Liverpool cut him off from all forms of creative touches, leaving the striker zoned out throughout the game.

 

The second 45 saw a penalty appeal for Liverpool when Namaplays Mendy fouled Jota in the box, that wad not given while the injury crises at Anfield increases as Naby Keita was taken off on account of a sprain.

 

Roberto Firmino also made his mark by giving Liverpool the last and winning goal at the 80th minute, converting a James Milner freekick and heading home with a goal for him, after his lack of goals this season.

 

This game makes it Liverpool’s 64th victory at Anfield- an unprecendented record for Klopp’s men, and also sees them go to second place, behind Tottenham Hotspur.

 

 

Liverpool and Leicester both have midweek games in European Competitions, and will return to the Premier League as Leicester take on Fulham while the defending champions battle against Brighton.
