″ We are red and white in Portugal and blue and white in England ″

Sergio Andre

INTERVIEW >> Bernardo Silva is the protagonist of an extensive interview for O JOGO on December 26th.

How does it feel to have Ruben Diaz and João Canselo on the same team? Does he keep seeing everything in red and white?
– In Portugal, yes, but not here in England. Here he is bluer … We are three reds and whites in Portugal and blue and white in England. I played with Canselo for seven years with Benfica, from 12 to 19. I even trained with Ruben several times, but he is three years younger. But then I remember him very well. It’s always good with them.

In fact, I faced a similar situation when I came to Monaco. At that time, early on, I was fortunate enough to meet João Moutinho and Ricardo Carvalho, who helped me a lot to adapt to the club as this was my first experience outside Portugal. Until now, I have only played for Benfica, and it helped me a lot to catch João and Ricardo. There are days when you are more grumpy and people who know you well help you get through those more boring moments. It’s great that Reuben and Canselo are here in the City every day.

When you play in England, in the best World Cup, in one of the best clubs in the world, you don’t think about going anywhere else. Do you agree?
-Differently. Now I think this is the best championship in the world, I think this is the country where the level is the highest. Several years ago there was Spanish domination that lasted for a very long time. I believe that at the moment the English teams are the strongest in the world and therefore it is always good to be where the best football is played. In addition, personal decisions are also important, for example, closeness to family, etc. But I confess, one of my dreams was to be part of the best world championship.

The confirmation of the claim of the American basketball player was confirmed to CNN International by the player’s lawyers.

Griner left the Russian court without making any statement to reporters and is returning to the bar to hear her on the 14th of this month. Russian authorities claim cannabis-based oil was found in the basketball player’s luggage. Griner has been in pre-trial detention since February 17.

Griner was without charge and unable to contact his family and his wife, Cherell Griner, as he found himself at the epicenter of growing tensions between the US and Russia, exacerbated by the latter’s invasion of Ukraine since February 24 and the war.

In May, the US State Department classified Griner as “detained by mistake” and classified her as a “hostage” of Russia. Now, at a second hearing in the case – after being cross-examined last week – Griner has, to his surprise, pleaded guilty.

Russian prosecutors allege that Griner tried to smuggle cannabis in his luggage. The prosecution theory is based on Britney’s alleged intent to buy and import banned substances from Russia to transact in the US, as prosecutors defended in a previous hearing, Russian state news agency TASS reported.

“But I still can’t talk to Britney and am still worried about her until she gets home safe and sound. The fact that President Biden read the letter I sent him, although it took some time to respond, gives me great hope. I know that Britney will be more comfortable just knowing that she is not forgotten, ”Sherel Griner writes in the same note.

Britney Griner has not been forgotten by the WNBA, and even though the 2022/23 season has already begun, she is remembered in all pavilions and honorably elected to the main five of the All-Star game, which takes place on Sunday, October 10th.

Gallardo: Enzo Fernandez's future is 'uncertain' - Benfica



With the Libertadores millionaires eliminated, the midfielder has doors open for a Benfica buff, but the River manager adds ambiguity to the speech

Following River Plate’s elimination from the Copa Libertadores at the feet of Vélez Sarsfield, midfielder Enzo Fernández left his doors open to leave Buenos Aires for Lisbon to strengthen Benfica ahead of the start of the new season. However, in statements at a post-match press conference on Thursday, Marcelo Gallardo, River Plate manager, said the midfielder’s future is not fully decided, unlike his teammate, who made his last appearance for the Millionaires. “[Palavras para Julian Álvarez e Enzo Fernández, que cumpriu hoje, muito provavelmente, o último jogo pelo River antes de se mudar para o Benfica?] Well, the case of Enzo Fernandez is not clear, not clear. I will say yes to Julián because it was his last game for him. I will tell you the same thing that I told him in person and then in the presence of his companions. For me, it is a source of great pride that I had the opportunity to coach him, to share in these years of growth that he had, and his football evolution. Today he moves to one of the biggest teams in the world. This makes me very happy and is a source of pride for me as I have seen him grow up and work hard. He has shown not only to me but to all Argentine football that he deserves the opportunity he has and I have no doubt that he will become an elite player, in fact he already is. He is a great boy, a great professional and I wish him and his family all the best,” said the millionaires coach, not to mention the situation with the midfielder, who has an agreement to move to Lush.

BALL - "We know that we are a target to shoot down" (FC Porto)

Pepe returned to work this Wednesday after a holiday. The captain assured that he was very motivated for another season in the service of the national champion.

“The expectation is always the same: to give our club the best and try to improve on what we did last year. This is our mission because we want to be healthy, bring joy to our fans and enjoy what we love to do. This is a year that will require a lot from everyone, and we are confident that we will manage. We will work for this and be able to respect our shirt,” the defender said, referring to the club’s website.

On the challenges they will face: “We are aware and confident that we have to be beaten for being champions last year, so we have to work very well. As I said, we need to improve on what we did last year. We have the Champions League, a competition where we want to celebrate our club and Portugal. We must work hard and with great enthusiasm to live until the end of the year happy.”

Pepe is still ready for next season, even at the age of 39: “First of all, it is the result of the luck I had to be at a great club like Porto where people work spectacularly. The coach demands a lot from us, he always makes sure that we can be at our best level in training. Even when we are not in Olivala, he requires us to try to be at our best, staying focused even when we are at home. That is why this demand from him (Sergio Conceição) helps me a lot to be at this level and to be at Porto, which gives me all the conditions to do my job.”
