PARDEW TO PUSH ZAHA ENGLAND’S WAY

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is set to convince the club’s prolific player Wilfred Zaha to play for the Three Lions but has asked that the national team step up if they want to persuade the player who is frustrated with lack of international recognition.


“Gareth is someone I know very well and we’ve spoken about Wilf. You’ve got to be really proactive with someone like Wilf if you want to secure him. I keep encouraging Gareth and Dan Ashworth as well,” Pardew said.

Pardew added that whilst he knew there were several players that could play wide in the England national team set-up he advised them to tap into Zaha’s availability, saying the player can do better.

“There are some good wide players in the country; Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andros Townsend, Jesse Lingard, and I think Wilf is as good as them, if not better.

“I’ve managed 300 Premier League games, I’ve managed Tevez and Mascherano, I’ve managed Teddy Sheringham, Yossi Bernayoun, Jermain Defoe, Michael Carrick – and I put him right up there with all of those,” Pardew declared.

Zaha earned two call-ups to the English camp but he could switch his allegiance to his African dissent – Ivory Coast. Pardew claimed the danger of the player switching was “very dangerous at the moment.”

Pardew said the player has scored a great goal, worked hard every week but wants the country to do better. Premier League giant Manchester United bought the player three years ago for £10 million but returned the player after an underwhelming debut season.

“That’s how I’ve tried to channel his energy. It’s not about showing people at Man United what you can do. Just be a better player. That’s what he’s doing,” Pardew added.

LIVERPOOL’S TITLE CHANCES DOUBTFUL.

There have been several discussions and debates regarding the current form Liverpool are posting under Coach Jurgen Klopp.

Many are impressed and they are wondering if this could be the season for the Reds.

“I have no idea what to do to win the Premier League,” Klopp said. For a manager that broke a chain twice in Germany, helping Borussia Dortmund to Bundesliga successes, his statements come as tongue-in-cheek. In his first title win, he led the team to the top after 10 games, but he refused to relinquish the top spot and they were crowned champions with two games outstanding. After the same number of games this term, he is joint lead in the Premier League.

The next time, Klopp took much longer to get to the top. When he did in February, he remained there until May. With Liverpool fighting for the top spot, once they get it, would Klopp maintain lead to the end?

The defense has been highlighted as a work in progress if the team is to win the title this campaign. The attack, the confidence and talent are surely not deficient. As the team approach a third of the season, the hopes are bursting out. They can also fall out completely as the race continues. In 2008/09, Liverpool were equally as impressive under Rafa Benitez. They earned 26 points from the first 10 matches but losing to Tottenham triggered a poor run of results. They won just seven games out of the next 17 games. Israeli international Yossi Bernayoun got the winner that sent them to the top in April but United had games at hand. They used that to their advantage to win the title.

In the 2013/14 season, Liverpool were almost sure to win the title. After that memorable game against Chelsea where Steven Gerrard threw the game away, the damage was done. For now the hope of winning remains doubtful but alive.

CAN LIVERPOOL WIN THE PREMIER LEAGUE?

Coach Jurgen Klopp has helped the Reds dream again after years of below-par performance.

Liverpool is now a team that can defeat any opposition in the Premier League. They have embarrassed the defending Champions Leicester City already; they were too much for Arsenal to handle in the season’s opener, they humbled Chelsea as well. Manchester United and Manchester City look like teams that Liverpool could defeat or get a point like they did against Tottenham Hotspurs. Liverpool have gone close to winning the Premier League on two occasions in the last decade.

Rafa Benitez was close in the 2008/2009 season with the likes of Pepe Reina, Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Steven Gerrard, and Fernando Torres. Former Liverpool coach – currently with Scottish side Celtic – Brendan Rodgers went close to winning the Premier League, building the core of his team around Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling.

Both teams produced an impressive run to the title win but stumbled somewhere, somehow! Kloop’s team have started well, and it might also end well. However, the fear is if they would eventually lift the Premier League. Manchester City and Spurs are ahead in the current standings after six games but when European competitions start stressing the teams, Liverpool would have an advantage since they have no distractions.

Benitez had Ryan Babel as his favourite sub, but there were players like Nabil El Zhar, Lucas Leiva, David N’Gog and Israeli star Yossi Bernayoun. Rodgers has Victor Moses, Joe Allen and Luis Alberto. Klopp has Divock Origi, Kevin Stewart, Emre Can and Moreno. Liverpool’s failure to go the full length cost them the title as Manchester City won. City still pose a serious threat this term with Pep Guardiola focused on making a statement in his year in charge.

CELTIC FACE HUGE TEST IN UCL PLAYOFF

Scottish champions Celtic are going to face a huge competition for a spot in the UEFA Champions League when they take on Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

The desert of Negev has waited four decades to win the champsionship in May, with their last try back in 1976. The city is barely 100 kilometres south of the country’s capital, living in the shadows of the capital. They won the cup in 1997 under the guidance of Eli Guttman but they are known for their 12-0 humiliating loss in Europe to Barcelona in 1994. After that win in 1997, they played in the Cup Winners’ Cup against Roda but lost 10-0. That season the outfit ended up being relegated from the top flight football.

Be’er Sheva has struggled to recover from the blow since their poor showing in Europe. The relegation left 18 year old graduate of their academy Yossi Benayoun hanging. Bernayoun started at career with Dutch giant Ajax before returning home to play for Be’er Sheva. Eventually, he moved to Maccabi Haifa, then to Racing before moving to England. He remains Israel best ever player still. Be’er Sheva returning to Europe would want to prove their worth so Celtic won’t have it easy.

The club has a female, Alona Barkat as its owner. She didn’t have the knowledge required initially and almost sold it but has grown to be a strong leader aiming very high. Also, while Bernayoun didn’t rejoin his boyhood club, Elyaniv Barda returned after six good years in Belgium. The club’s home ground is a fortress and they remain unbeaten. The coach at the helms isn’t one Celtic can take lightly as they are not in the league of Astana who even posed a little problem in the previous round. They defeated Olympiakos in the previous round and are keen on playing in Europe, so Celtic better prepare hard.

Yossi Benayoun is expected to make his switch to Maccabi Tel Aviv before the end of this week

The 36-year-old is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Israeli club. The move has been talked about a lot in recent weeks. Despite having agreed personal terms and undergone a medical with Maccabi Tel Aviv,Benayoun’s move was put on hold due to various reasons. The Israeli club were hoping to appoint a new manager before the arrival of the former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder.Benayoun has been at Maccabi Haifa for the last two seasons, but he left the club in difficult circumstances.

Even though he was a key figure in helping the club win their first title after a gap of five years while also being successful in the State Cup after five years, he was told to leave the club back in September.Benayoun reportedly fell out with owner Jacob Shachar. Unhappy with his treatment, the midfielder announced that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season. He has followed up by talking with Maccabi Tel Aviv to make them as his new home. Talks have progressed as expected and the move is expected to be concluded before the end of this week.

“I came to Haifa with the intention of ending my career here, but things change in soccer. There is no other player in Israel who would have coped with what I coped with this season,” said the midfielder after helping Maccabi Haifa win the cup final. Benayoun was a major fan favourite at the club as he represented them from 1998 to 2002 before moving onto European football with the likes of Racing Santander. His big break came with West Ham and subsequent spells at the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea were also successful.
