    FC Barcelona will win 2014 UEFA Championship. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are other two contenders.

    But you forgot PSG. Zlatan has already scored 40 goles and is just behind Ronaldo, He is in top form.. Cavani has returned.. Lavezzi and Locus are in top form.. They are also capable of winning..

    BTW Bayern has more chance of winning since Pep Guardiola already knows everything about Real and Barcelona.. This puts Bayern in front position

    PSG may have a chance against Chelsea in Quarter-finals but they are no match against the might of spanish football.

    We need the likes of Pep Guardiola so that India can remove the dominance of Kolkata football clubs in Indian football.

    Zenit Job Offers Villas-Boas a Chance at Redemption – Winterburn

    MOSCOW, March 22 (R-Sport) – Coaching Russian title challengers Zenit St. Petersburg offers Andre Villas-Boas a chance at redeeming his reputation after it was tarnished by unsuccessful spells with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, former Arsenal and England defender Nigel Winterburn has told R-Sport.
    Villas-Boas, 36, was unveiled as Zenit coach Thursday, replacing Italian Luciano Spalletti, fired earlier this month after a poor run of form. The Portuguese boss faces his first game in charge Monday with a Russian Premier League clash against Krylya Sovetov Samara at home.
    With Zenit out of the Champions League after a 5-4 aggregate loss to Borussia Dortmund, Villas-Boas has said his first priority is to take Zenit, who are second in the RPL, to their first Russian title for two years.
    “I think Villas-Boas now, he really needs a club that will allow him to work in the way that he wants to work and probably give him two, even three years to establish himself back as a good young coach, because his reputation has been damaged,” Winterburn told R-Sport in a recent interview.
    Villas-Boas won the Portuguese title and Europa League in 2011 with a Porto side that included Brazilian striker Hulk, now a key player for Zenit.After leaving Porto, he lasted just eight months as Chelsea manager before a 17-month stint with Spurs, leaving “by mutual consent” in December with the London side a lowly seventh in the league.
    “He came with a very, very high reputation to England and I think that’s been damaged with how quickly he was fired by both clubs,” Winterburn said. “You can say he was fired unrealistically, he was fired too quickly, but I think Zenit is a club now that he needs to stay and he needs to be given time to show what he can now do.”
    R-Sport understands the 36-year-old's contract is worth 8.5 million euros a year, a sum Winterburn described as “huge,” making the Portuguese coach one of the world’s best paid managers.
    On Friday, he said he had turned down an offer from Olympique Marseille to join Zenit.

    Two Delhi kids picked to be flagbearers at Fifa World Cup

    NEW DELHI: Lady luck smiled on two kids from Delhi today as they earned themselves tickets to the upcoming football World Cup after being chosen as 'Adidas Fifa flagbearers' for the mega event in Brazil. In the presence of star cricketer Kevin Pietersen, who is a brand ambassador of the sportswear giant, Mihir Batra from St Columba's School and Jasen Moses of Mother's International School, were selected out of 500 kids from the city, and they will be flying to Sao Paulo for a pre- quarterfinal match on July 1. Pietersen announced the name of the winners. The World Cup is slated to be held from June 12 to July 13. Six children, four to be selected from other cities, will head to Sao Paulo to see a round of 16 match at the mecca of football. About the initiative, Pietersen said, "Going to Brazil for a Fifa World Cup has to be the most incredible experience for any football fan and I am glad these kids are getting a shot to make their dream a reality. The atmosphere here is brilliant and this is a great initiative from Adidas to provide such an opportunity to these young fans." Tushar Goculdas, brand director, Adidas India, added, "The Adidas Fifa Fairplay Flag Bearers Program is the most exciting opportunity for young football fans in the country-bringing them close to the action on the pitch and the players they love." A Chelsea fan, Pietersen said he is friends with veterans Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and John Terry. "Chelsea is my favourite team. I have got good friends at Chelsea like Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and John Terry. I live in Chelsea and also underwent my rehabilitation there when I had my Achilles tendon injury."

    India women's football team grabs 50th spot in FIFA
    rankings


    New Delhi: India's women football team moved one place up to grab the 50th spot among 175 nations in the latest FIFA ranking. The team also grabbed 11th position in the AFC ranking, moving up one spot. It is the second time that the women's football team has come up in the top 50 since the inception of rankings in 2003. The team last played matches in May 2013 for 2014 Asian Games qualifier losing against higher- ranked Myanmar and Chinese Taipei and gained one point after drawing with host Palestine. Earlier this month, the AIFF mooted the plan of hosting women's I-league from 2015. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women's Assistance Programme which was held in the second week of June in New Delhi took major decisions like organising regular training sessions and more number of competitions for the women's team. AFC has also decided to host workshops for training women referees and coaches. The team will be taking part in the women's SAFF Championship at Pakistan in November later this year.

    Nope,not injured. Passed the medical test. But we will sign another striker. Most likely Loic Remy . Di Marizo confirmed CFC has agreed a deal with him which is as good as official confirmation.
