Football prediction before round 15 of Premier League

The harshest phase of the planet’s No. 1 tournament will begin later this week when clubs will have to compete with dreadful density.

As usual, Christmas and New Year are the time when English football viewers see live football as the “festive season”. In the context of other major tournaments entering the winter break, the No.1 tournament in the fog country continues to take place and teams will have to play with a frequency of 3 days / match.

The first match of the “Tourmalet” before the new year will be the encounter that attracts great attention from people watching football live between Leicester City and Man Utd. This is a match to determine the second place of the table and is an opportunity for football prediction experts to recognize the chances of competing for the championship of the two teams with Liverpool this season.

In the context that Leicester and Man Utd have to live and die together at King Power, Liverpool of course is the name that benefits. The top team will have a display to welcome the penultimate Premier League team, West Brom at home, and a victory for coach Jurgen Klopp is not surprising.

Another great battle is also very interesting in round 15 is the London Derby between Arsenal vs Chelsea. Unlike the glorious reputation in the past, the encounter between the two great men of the English capital no longer attracts much attention from football viewers because Chelsea and especially Arsenal have weakened. seen this season. If you continue not to beat the Blues next Sunday, it is likely that coach Mikel Arteta’s chair will no longer be guaranteed.

In some other notable matches in round 15, Man City at home will have an easy match against Newcastle. Similarly, Everton also has a rather gentle trip to Sheffield Utd’s yard. Meanwhile, Tottenham in the context of a slowdown in form will have a trip that makes it difficult for visitors to come to the field of a difficult opponent to play Wolves.

How many African players did MU have before bringing Ighalo?

MU is not in the habit of using African players, with striker Ighalo is a rare case. It should be noted that players from the black continent who join the Red Devils are often not very successful.

Striker Odion Ighalo became the first Nigerian player to wear a MU shirt with a six-month loan contract from Shanghai Shenhua. Before that, “Red Devil” had 6 other names from Africa throughout history.

Quinton Fortune (1999-2006)

Unlike Ighalo, Quinton Fortune never played at any club in Africa nor in his hometown of South Africa. The 1977 former midfielder started his career in Spain with Mallorca and Atletico Madrid, before moving to MU in 1999 for £ 1.5 million.

At MU, he made 76 appearances, scored 5 goals and won 1 Premier League title and 1 FA Cup, and became the longest African player in the MU shirt so far. Leaving in 2006, Quinton Fortune drifted through a few famous clubs before retiring in 2010.

Eric Bailly (2016-present)

Brought in under coach Jose Mourinho, Eric Bailly is one of the most expensive African players with a £ 30 million transfer. The Ivory Coast midfielder played an important role in the Europa League and League Cup championships of MU in the first season.

However, the constant injuries made Bailly unable to make a breakthrough in his career. He has not played for a minute this season due to still being treated for a terrible knee injury.

Eric Djemba-Djemba (2003-2005)

MU spent 3.5 million pounds for Nantes in 2003 to bring Eric Djemba-Djemba in the hope that the Cameroonian player will replace Roy Keane. However, what this midfielder left is very disappointing. 39 Eric Djemba-Djemba’s appearances have mostly come in cup tournaments or friendly matches. He left Manchester just two years later.

Mame Biram Diouf (2009-2012)

Mame Biram Diouf started as a dream at MU with a goal in his debut match with Burnley. Sir Alex Ferguson then wanted to make the Senegalese player a super substitute, like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But unexpectedly, that goal was the only … goal of Diouf during his time at MU. The presence of Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen and young talent Daniel Welbeck made Diouf overshadowed.

Wilfried Zaha (2013-2015)

Wilfried Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last contract before leaving the head coach by bringing back from Crystal Palace for £ 15 million. Despite a contract for 5 and a half years, the Ivory Coast player has only made 2 appearances in the Premier League after the debut of new boss David Moyes in the British Super Cup.

Manucho (2008-2009)

Not many clubs made the transfer of players from Angola, so MU’s decision to bring in the unknown striker Manucho in 2007 caught the attention of NHM. The fans’ excitement increased after he had 4 goals in CAN 2008. However, he was troubled by a work permit, forcing MU to lend Panathinaikos.

In the end, Manucho only played once for MU before being loaned again and then sold. This year 36 years old, he is playing in the final days of his career when he joined the Spanish 3rd class team UE Cornella.

Why African Football cannot dominate the world

Africa always produces world-class players. They also have nations that have the same and top players and teams in the world. African Football Stars Can’t dominate the world.

Suffering War And Colony Too Long

It was the oppression and dominance of imperial states that prevented African nations from developing. Slavery, racial segregation is what makes Africa one of the poorest countries in the world despite its vast resources. That is why football cannot develop in Africa.

Cầu thủ Châu Phi Đa Phần Là Tiền Đạo Và Hậu Vệ

There are No Qualified National Championships

Successful players often come to Europe to continue their careers. Very few countries have a prestigious league to develop their career. That is why their stars are always scattered in countries around the world. The players will be very difficult to integrate each time up to compete together.

Competition Player Physical Strength

Even though they are all stars. But most of the stars are physically and physically competitive as well as personal breakthroughs and techniques. It is difficult to find a player who plays and creates ball in the team of teams from Africa. Most African players rarely play in the center of the midfield of the top teams. If there is just a defensive midfielder position or a winger.

Therefore, the teams of Africa always focus on taking advantage of physical strength and speed to finish the opponent. Therefore, when the competitors are too similar. Like the Can Cup competitions there are very few goals. And when attending world tournaments African teams are often confused to deal with mixed attacks from European and South American teams.

Cầu Thủ Gốc Phi Không Phục Vụ Đội Tuyển Quê Nhà

Young Training System Focuses On Player Exports

Knowing your strengths are fitness and speed. As a result, African coaches have trained most of the players in the position of defenders and defensive midfielders. Therefore, the invisible form makes the national teams lack creative players.

Lost Star Into European Countries

Many non-African stars don’t cater to their national team. Most players will have European nationality. So they will wait for European countries to convene rather than return to Africa with much lower compensation than when they join the French, German, Belgian teams.

That we can see most clearly. In 98 France won the World Championship, but most of the squad was of African descent. Most prominent is Zidane an Algerian star. Senegal’s Vieira… Currently, the top players of some teams also have African roots like Lukaku and Pogba.

The fact that the top stars do not serve their team is the main reason that African football cannot dominate world football.

Above are some reasons why African Football can not dominate the world.
