Zlatan Ibrahimovic created yet another record

Zlatan Ibrahimovic created yet another record by scoring on his debut for Manchester United.


The Swedish striker has now scored on his debut for four other clubs in four different leagues. Ibrahimovic started the game against Bournemouth and led the line ahead of Wayne Rooney. The 34-year-old is trusted immensely by manager José Mourinho, whose presence was a major factor in convincing the player to arrive on a free transfer from Paris St Germain. Ibrahimovic has won league titles in Holland, Spain, Italy, and France. Winning the title in England would complete a big list, but strangely, he has never won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award.

Can Anyone Overhaul Real Madrid?

The minnows of Europe may only just be dealing with the preliminary rounds of the Champions League but as the major nations’ league campaigns get underway, fans of Real Madrid will be wondering whether they can be the first team since Milan in the late 1980s to retain the trophy.

There will be a host of familiar faces coming up against the Spanish champions, but with a Super Cup victory already recorded against Sevilla – and a jubilant Ronaldo on a high after this summer’s European Championship – can anyone stop Real Madrid this season?

Thrilling Draw By Ronaldo Against Hungary

The Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has been striving for victory at Euro 2016.


He indeed succeeded to help his team achieve a third draw which made them stand in the 3rd position in Group F. Both Portugal and Hungary reached the knockout stage of Euro 2016 after a win-win situation of 3-3 draw. Ronaldo netted two times which made him the 1st player to have scored in European championships four times.

Pogba future uncertain after Zidane comments

Following weeks of negotiations between Italian Champions Juventus and English giants Manchester United over the transfer of midfielder Paul Pogba, and with an agreement seemingly not forthcoming, Real Madrid could yet have a say in what would undoubtedly be the most expensive transfer fee in football history.

Champions League winning manager Zinedine Zidane has made no secret of his admiration for his compatriot, however it is still unclear whether the Spanish side will formally make a bid to sign the 23-year-old.

Casino Sponsorship the key to Baggies Improvement?

Since Leicester City stunned football and the wider sporting world by taking the Premier League title in 2015-16, other clubs have been considering what it might take to get them to the fabled ‘next level’. Ok, so few, if any will ever emulate what the Foxes have just achieved but for sides such as West Brom, there is definite scope for improvement.

Lucrative deals
The Baggies have been involved with sportsbook and casino sponsorship for some time and at the start of the summer, the West Midlands club were looking for another operator to come on board. Step forward, UK-K8.com – an Asian focussed casino who were looking to increase their exposure in the UK with a deal of this kind.

Zlatan: Hero or Hyperbole?

After a glittering career spanning over 15 years at many of the top clubs in European Football, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opted to swap Paris for Manchester in a free transfer move to Old Trafford this summer.

At 34 years of age, Ibrahimovic’s best years are almost certainly behind him, but his recent efforts in the French capital bode well for United and their new boss, Jose Mourinho.

Andres Iniesta not interested with the FIFA BallonD’or

Barcelona and Spain midfielder stated that he is not interested in winning the FIFA BallonD’or.


He said that the most important thing for him is to be surrounded by quality players and to ensure that his team comes out victorious.

Andres Iniesta has been impressive in the first two games of the Euro 2016 and seemed to be back to his best level. This has reflected in the way Spain has dominated the first two games which are reminiscent of the team that won the Euros and the World Cup. His good form has prompted calls for Iniesta to be included among the BallonD’or nominees.

Will the FIFA Ballon d’Or pattern break in 2017?

For the past few years, the winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or has been won by either Lionel Messi or C.Ronaldo.

This trend started off back in 2008 when C.Ronaldo won the individual award of that year and from there on out it has been a battle between the Portuguese superstar and the Argentinean wizard.

Messi and Ronaldo face stiff competition

There is no question that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are currently the best players on the planet, with their goal-scoring feats, number of records and natural skill separating them from the rest. Both players have dominated the Ballon D’Or awards since its inception in 2010, with Messi currently the most successful winner with four trophies compared to Ronaldo’s two.

They have left other contenders in their wake by trading places in the top two since 2011, but 2016 could be the year in which the Messi-Ronaldo monopoly is finally broken.

Javi Martinez claims the striker Thomas Müller can win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award

Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez claims the striker Thomas Müller can win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award in the near future.

Müller’s achievements can be boosted by very few players across the world. He has recently been good in terms of collecting team awards. At just 26 years of age, Müller has been crowned as the world champion and has won the Bundesliga and Champions League titles with his club, Bayern Munich. He is just shy of making 400 appearances in all competitions for club and country, and Martinez reckons that there is more to come from the striker.
