Italian Football Waiting for a Champions League Winner through Juventus

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is eyeing up the Champions League title in order to give a major boost to Italian football.


Juventus have once again managed to reach the final of the competition where they will be facing Real Madrid. This will be a repeat of the 1998 final when Juventus lost 1-0 against the Spanish club. This time around, the Italian outfit will be much better prepared after having overcome the likes of Barcelona in order to reach this stage. No Italian team has been able to win the coveted award since 2010 when Inter Milan won the honours.

Who has been the best player in Serie A this season?

The 2016-17 Serie A campaign is about to come to an end. There are only four more rounds of matches left. Juventus look set to win the Scudetto, while AS Roma and Napoli appear set to take the fight for the runners-up spot down to the wire.

Lazio and Atalanta, this season’s surprise package, are going to battle for the fourth spot. Pescara have already been relegated to Serie B, with Genoa, Empoli, Crotone and Palermo all aiming to avoid the dreaded drop to the Italian second division.

Serie A is blessed with some world-class players and some hugely talented youngsters. Below we look at the three best footballers in the Italian top flight this season and then we choose our Serie A Player of the 2016-17 Season.

Silvio Berlusconi sad with AC Milan’s Chinese Ownership, claims Brother

Silvio Berlusconi recently ended a major presence in Italian football after deciding to sell AC Milan to Chinese investors.


He had been involved with the Rossonerifor several decades, but his departure brings a major change to the club following the arrival of more Chinese investment. Only a few months ago, Inter Milan were taken over by Asian investors with a view of returning the club back to the glory days. After a wave of investment in the Premier league over the last decade, new billionaire owners are turning their attention towards Spanish and Italian clubs.

Stefano Pioli Once Again Reacts to Rumours about Inter Milan Exit

Stefano Pioli has claimed that he has grown accustomed to the rumours about an exit from Inter Milan.


The Nerazzurri have been linked with a new manager ever since the club underwent a takeover to be part of the Chinese ownership. Even thoughPioli was appointed only midway through the campaign, it is understood that the Chinese owners are not happy with the direction taken by the club in the last six months. Inter spent a reasonably well in the transfer market, but they have been unable to see the dividends on the pitch with the club continuing to struggle for consistency.

Inter Have Sufficient Quality to win Without Mauro Icardi, says Stefano Pioli

There has been a common suggestion that Inter Milan are too reliant on the presence of Mauro Icardi that the club will not be able to sustain a challenge for the top three places without the Argentine striker.


Icardi has been one of the top players in the Italian Serie A over the last few years. Only a few weeks ago, he was the top scorer in the division. Even now, he remains one of the best players after having scored 17 goals – five fewer than Torino forward Andrea Belotti. However, he recently missed the game against Empoli.

Stefano Pioli Disappointed with the Refereeing in the 1-0 Loss against Juventus

Inter Milan manager Stefano Pioli said that his team should have earned a penalty in the 1-0 loss against Juventus during the weekend.


Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado, who is already Juventus, scored the only goal of the game just before the half time. Pioli felt that Inter Milan should have been awarded at least two penalties in the entire game. According to the Inter Milan manager, referee Nicola Rizzoli failed to notice the handball by Giorgio Chiellini and the tackle from Mario Mandzukic in the box. Incidentally, both fouls were on Mauro Icardi.

SPALLETTI – TOTTI IS MUHAMMED ALI OF FOOTBALL

Head Coach of AS Roma FC Lucio Spalletti has hailed Francesco Totti as the Muhammad Ali of football after the Roma football legend scored in the Coppa Italia, 25 years after the player made his debut for the club.


Roma defeated Serie B side Cesena 2-1 at the Stadio Olympico with Totti converting a penalty in injury time. Roma managed to scrap past their opponent but they qualified for the Coppa Italia semi final with the result.

Allegri’s Tactical Switch Maintains Juventus’ Serie A Title Bid

Juventus remain on course for a sixth successive Serie A title and third successive domestic double. The Old Lady sit top of Serie A after 20 fixtures with 48 points, a point clear of Roma. The champions’ four defeats this season have all come away from home against Inter, Milan, Genoa and most recently Fiorentina.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri changed the team’s formation to a 4-2-3-1 in order to fit Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandžukić, and Gonzalo Higuaín into the first eleven. The effects were immediate with Juventus securing a comfortable 2-0 home victory against fourth-placed Lazio on Sunday.

LI GETS 12 MORE WEEKS

Yonghong Li has managed to convince Silvio Berlusconi to grant him an extra twelve weeks to come up with the bucks to finalize the transfer of the ownership of AC Milan.

Berlusconi’s stance was pretty strict when he had spoken about the issue the previous month as he had dropped signs that if the bucks didn’t reach him within the time that had been given to the other party, he might terminate the deal and keep his club to himself.
