"Darwin? Manchester United could write a book on how not to make transfers"

Criticism of former Liverpool player Robbie Fowler as the Red Devils enter the race for Darwin Nunes

As Darwin Nunes’ deal with Liverpool draws to a close, former Liverpool star Robbie Fowler has criticized the way rivals Manchester United have entered the race for the Uruguayan striker.

“The signing of Darwin Nunez is almost complete, what I admire is the presence of Manchester United in the negotiations. I can guarantee that Anfield were upset by this as it could raise not only the price but also the wages required. [Apesar disso] Let’s be clear, no self-respecting agent would use this to ask for a bigger contract.”

The former England international has accused the Red Devils of only getting into an argument over Darwin to prevent the Benfica striker from strengthening Liverpool, similar to what he believes has happened to Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexis in the past Sanchez.

“I don’t want to be cruel, but Manchester United could write a free book on how not to make transfers in their final seasons. Signing players just because you don’t want them to go to your opponent? Done, more than once “Cristiano Ronaldo did his job well enough, but sign him only because he could go to City? It’s a declared disaster. Same with Alexis Sanchez, by the way, not the same, ten times worse “, he noted.

“This business [de Alexis Sánchez] explains everything that is wrong at Old Trafford. How much is it? about 500 thousand [libras] weekly in salary, I saw somewhere that it cost them about 20 million [de libras] for a goal! Fowler added.

Robbie Fowler even goes so far as to claim that this approach to the market is responsible for the “destruction” of Manchester United’s financial structure.

“The worst part is that it didn’t just disrupt United’s pay structure, it destroyed it. That’s how the goalkeeper [David De Gea] ends up earning £400,000 a week and getting a midfielder like Paul. [Pogba]who didn’t even make the team half the time won even more,” he concluded.

BALL - Francisco J. Marquez and roller hockey classic: "FC Porto's whistle was blown" (FC Porto)

Benfica’s victory over Porto (5:3) in the fourth match of the final of the national roller hockey championship caused some criticism of the refereeing from the Dragons. After manager Ricardo Ares expressed disbelief that the Eagles had two fouls in 30 minutes, it was Francisco J. Marquez’s turn to use social media to reflect on opponents.

Ricardo Ares [treinador do FC Porto] did not comment on the actions of the referee, limiting himself to stating that in 30 minutes Benfica had only two fouls, which would be surprising in a friendly game, not to mention a tense playoff match. In the 16th minute the foul score was 8-8, a natural balance in line with the history of the games between the two teams and even in harmony with the balance between the championship finalists. From that moment on, the whistle was blown at Porto and released at Benfica. Porto were winning 1-0 and the foul streak started for only one side, with Benfica taking advantage of the 10th foul to equalize. A new advantage for our team and a few more fouls for Benfica, who drew from a free kick on the 15th foul. At the 15th minute of the game the score was 7-0 on fouls, after 8-8 of the first 16 minutes. Until 21 minutes later, the ninth foul of Benfica followed, when the score was already 4-2.

Futsal: Sporting beat Benfica again and became national champion

Sporting are two-time national futsal champions after beating Benfica 4-3 tonight in the third game of the championship final.

After winning two overtime wins in their first two games, the Lions took the field this Saturday knowing they could end the night. And the task, it must be said, was difficult, painful, but not so much that additional time was required … for very little.

At half-time, the team led by Nuno Dias had already had a hand in Kaneko as they won 3-0. In futsal, things can change from moment to moment, but this has not happened, despite the latest threat to the formation of Pulpis.

GAME FILM.

Goals from Pauleta, Cavinato and Cardinal were answered by goalkeeper André Sousa – with the help of Merlin’s precious deflection – with a cut to 3-1 early in the second period.

The Eagles had a new hope, which Ziki Te tried to cool shortly after, taking advantage of the rebound from the beautiful shot of Pani Varela.

But there was still a game.

Arthur returned to reduce for the Reds, twice, and the eagle returned to be in discussion in the title. So much so that Arthur himself hit the post at the last second, in a dramatic final that once again crowned the lion.

Sporting repeat the triumph of last season and win the 17th league title in history. This increases the difference with the rival Benfica, which has eight achievements in history.
