Bayern Munich director: Fewer ‘Pogba deals’ to happen in future
Bayern Munich technical director Michael Reschke has explained why he believes world-record fees such as Paul Pogba's transfer to Manchester United will become less frequent in the future... "There was one transfer in excess of 100 million euros last season, Pogba, and maybe you could mention Gonzalo Higuain in the same bracket with 90 million euros," Reschke told El Pais. "But I predict fewer transfers of that stature in the future. Big clubs simply do not want to sell their best players. And the best players are already at these clubs. "They only leave when their contract expires, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Dani Alves. Maybe you are able to buy someone when he only has one more year left on his contract. "The best players are already at Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico [Madrid], the big Premier League clubs, Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain."
Bayern robbery? Real Madrid were also robbed!
Real Madrid victory over Bayern Munich has become a matter of big controversies after the several errors that the match official Viktor Kassai allowed. The whole world speaks about the robbery that he did to Bayern Munich, including two offside goals that were allowed and the controversial red card handled to Arturo Vidal. However, deeper analysis of the match shows that it's not only Bayern who suffered from the poor refereeing. Real Madrid were also robbed, and here is why. Arturo Vidal should have been sent off much earlier Vidal saw the second yellow card after a tackle on Marco Asensio, where his fault was not so evident. However, Viktor Kassai had to show him that red card much earlier, in the 47th minute for a fault on Casemiro. And here is the fault that Vidal was sent off for. https://cf-e2.streamablevideo.com/video/mp4/x1ufw.mp4 Possible penalty on Sergio Ramos Xabi Alonso grabbed and did not let Sergio Ramos finish the cross from the flank, and this could have ended up with a penalty in favor of Real Madrid. Penalty for Boateng's tackle on Casemiro In the final minutes of the match, all Real Madrid players and fans asked for the a penalty against the German side. Casemiro was tackled by Boateng and went down inside the area. Lewandowski was offside before Ramos' own goal In fact, the game shouldn't have passed to the extra-time since Bayern scored their second goal after the poor decision by the referees, too. Before Ramos could send the ball into his own net, Robert Lewandowski was in offside position. Moreover, replays show, that Thomas Muller was holding the Real Madrid captain with his hands before the Spaniard changed the wrong scoresheet. So dear fans, let's not complain about the referees and just enjoy football with all of its dramatism, errors and polemics.
