first_imgTold you this guy is a massive Chelsea fans— 🎩 (@CFCLamps_) August 17, 2020Some have even begun to ask journalist, Fabrizio Romano, for any news on a possible transfer.Messi to Chelsea news? pic.twitter.com/axL2Dlm5le— Liam (@_CFCLiam) August 16, 2020 His shirt sales at Chelsea if he joined would be insane— Chris (@cdclayton) August 17, 2020 Messi just followed Chelsea on Instagram🤯Efie gya adum 😂😂😂😭😭😭— Gyata_Shoa💉 (@thatEsselguy) August 15, 2020 Chelsea and Barcelona shared something in common when they became the latest high-profile victims of German side, Bayern Munich in the Champions League within the space of a week.The two teams might soon have another thing in common – Lionel Messi.Messi’s frustrations, as they have been for much of the latter part of the season, have been laid bare, getting worse after the 8-2 loss to Bayern.It has led to suggestions that the Barcelona star might be seeking a way out of the Camp Nou, with Man City hinted at as a possible destination.Indeed, links to a side in blue have intensified in the last couple of days but it’s not City that are being talked about.Following the loss to Bayern, some Chelsea fans noticed that the Argentine was following their club on Instagram, leading to wild suggestions that Messi was looking for a new home, in London.The fans also pulled up an old interview with Messi’s former teammate, Pablo Zabaleta, who said the player always fancied using Chelsea when playing the FIFA games.It’s unclear when Messi started following the Blues although suggestions are that it wasn’t recent, probably in 2015, but that hasn’t stopped Blues fans from hoping.Some have even already put him into a possible lineup for next season.If Chelsea sign Messi 😅 pic.twitter.com/qddbpYZryx— Kyle Samson (@Ksamson170) August 16, 2020 Messi twerking for Chelsea uno we’re actually clear @ChelseaFC get it done. #MessiToChelsea2021 pic.twitter.com/TU6UxhSBUJ— Don (@DonCheIsea) August 17, 2020It will take an almighty effort from the Blues to sign Messi, who despite many offers to take him away from Catalonia, has remained with Barcelona his whole career.last_img read more

KPL newbies Wazito snap up AFC duo

first_imgAlso signing for Wazito is Ivorian Emmanuel Tienan who was previously with MOSCA.“These are players who we think will be a great addition to the squad. Nyakha is a very good midfielder especially on the ball and his experience having featured for AFC will be great for us. We are still chasing a few names and I can assure that we will have a very strong squad,” the tactician offered.Wazito earned a berth in top flight after finishing second in last season’s National Super League and Ouna who joined them midway through the 2016 season before turning them into a winning outfit has vowed they will not be in the KPL to make up the numbers.“We are coming in to compete and show that we are a good side as well. We went through so many challenges in the NSL but the players had the belief and we achieved what we didn’t think was easily achievable. It is now time to show that we can compete at the top,” the former Posta Rangers and Gor Mahia assistant coach added.Ouna has been credited with lifting the team from the ashes, one he found dwindling in relegation when he took over before raising its profile and finally a first ever berth in top flight.To aid his course, Ouna has added two more hands into his technical bench with former Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards goalkeeper trainer Iddi Salim joining the team on the same capacity.Wazito FC head coach Frank Ouna issues instructions to his players during a past National Super League match.

He will be in charge of training the midfielders.Francis Oduor who has been part of the team for a while will be in charge of the defense while former Gor Mahia striker George Midenyo will this time be charged with sharpening the team’s next big strikers.“It is very important to have many hands to help each other out especially at this level of the Premier League. It becomes easier to pick out and manage mistakes. I think the two new guys to the bench will add so much to the team in terms of their experience,” the tactician further added.Wazito begin their Kenyan Premier League campaign on February 5 at home against Sony Sugar.“We expect a very tough challenge but looking at how we performed especially in the GOtv Shield matches, I am certain we can weather the storm. We just need to firm up a few areas technically and we will be good to go,” further added the tactician.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000AFC Leopards goal keeper Edwin Mukolwe in action against their SPL clash against Tusker FC last season.
