Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Patrick Kluivert has claimed that Matthijs de Ligt slightly “regrets” joining Juventus over Barcelona. Barca were among the favourites to sign De Ligt over the summer, but the defender eventually left Ajax for Juve. Nonetheless, Kluivert – now academy director at Camp Nou – believes his countryman would have been better off moving to Spain. “I didn’t personally try to convince him about joining Barcelona,” the former Milan striker told Mundo Deportivo. “I only told him about the positive aspects of Barcelona as a club and city. “We are obviously talking about a great defender and in the end he made a choice. I think he slightly regrets it now, but that’s the way it is. “In life, you must make choices, sometimes good ones and sometimes bad. You have to learn from your decisions.”

Mourinho officially took charge of Tottenham earlier today, and he will once more work with Cerra in North London. The Roman was technical analyst at Manchester United between 2016 and 2018 – a position he will again fill for the ex-Inter boss. Prior to that, he worked as lead visual designer for Chelsea from July 2013 to July 2016. His role as technical analyst entails turning scouting data and game plans into charts and images, making them easier for players to understand. However, little is known about him in his native Italy, where he has yet to work for a professional club.
Simone Inzaghi admits Lazio’s Europa League chances are “hanging by a thread,” but insists they “deserved six points against Celtic.” The Biancocelesti are practically out of the Europa League after a dismal run of results, throwing away leads against Cluj and Celtic (twice). They host CFR Cluj on Thursday evening and are already six points adrift of the Romanians, who are in second place. “It’s a Europa League game, where our qualification hopes are hanging by a thread,” confessed the coach in his press conference. “Until we are mathematically ruled out, we’ll do all we can to progress. It’s our own fault we are in this situation, but it’s also due to external factors, as against Celtic when it was 1-1, there was a clear penalty on Ciro Immobile that could’ve changed the match. “We also know that we really should’ve done better. We’ve been playing excellent football in Serie A and thoroughly deserve to be in third place. We could’ve had a better draw in the Europa League and our performances didn’t match the results. “Lazio have the quality to go through this group, but it’s looking likely we won’t. We were unable to get incidents to go our way, as a great team should. “We want to win every game. We deserved six points against Celtic and ended up with zero. Paradoxically, we only won against Rennes after our worst performance. “I would make the same choices going back, as the players weren’t always ready for three games in a week, so we had to rotate.” Felipe Caicedo came off the bench to score the winner at Sassuolo on Sunday, but he has a slight ankle problem and will need a fitness test. “I’ll try to field a competitive team, but also aware that we have another game coming up on Sunday. Marco Parolo and Danilo Cataldi will certainly play, while Manuel Lazzari has to sacrifice himself and push through, seeing as Adam Marusic is suspended,” explained Inzaghi. “I don’t know if Bobby Adekanye will start or come off the bench, but he will certainly have some playing time. He is young and has a lot of work to do. “Thomas Strakosha had flu yesterday, but it was already planned that Silvio Proto would be in goal tomorrow, as he is reliable.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

And in keeping with her record, the actress will now be seen in an all-out deglam avatar in Kunal Kohli’s Muqtassar. Muqtassar’s storyline is said to be set across three different eras-preindependence, immediately post independence and the current times.Therefore Priyanka, who plays the lead in the film, will have to sport deglamourised clothes-mostly simple yet bright-colored saris-to justify her character, which is said to be loosely based on poet and freedom fighter Sarojini Naidu.The first schedule for the movie has already been completed in London while Kunal is still hunting for a location for the second schedule.
