Wengers vast experience has put him in contention, but it is not expected that he will be handed the reins after .

Ex-Arsenal midfielder Petit told Luis Severino Jersey Paddy Power on the links to Real: I dont believe that Wenger could ever end up at Real Madrid. Why? Because hes had the opportunity at Alex Rodriguez Jersey least three times before.

For his own reasons he decided to stay at Arsenal each time, so I dont see why he would change his mind about that now, even though hes no longer at the club.

Also, this is not the word I would use, but Arsene does have a reputation in Spain for losing, largely because of the Champions League.

The way he would want to manage a club is not the way things work at Madrid either. It is a very political club. The pre sure, the way the president is always involved, he wouldnt have the freedom he had at Arsenal.

So I dont Greg Bird Jersey think he would be a fit for the Real Madrid job.

Wenger has also been .

He would not get the opportunity to prolong his managerial career in the French capital, but Roger Maris Jersey he could fill a director of football post.

World Cup winner Petit added: There was some speculation in France around Paris Saint-Germain as a destination for him, but now they have Thomas Tuchel as coach, so its hard to know where he could go next as a manager.

What I do know is that, at PSG, whats been mi sing is authority and respect for the institution. Many Paris players didnt show respect to the Dellin Betances Jersey club throughout the season.

Wenger would certainly help bring that into the club.

FC Goa failed to find the back of the net against Chennaiyin FC and suffered a 3-0 (4-1 aggregate) in the second leg of the play-offs on Tuesday evening at the Marina Zack Wheeler Jersey Arena.

While Ferran Corominas and Manuel Lanzarote have been exceptional for the Goan team through the league stages, the Spanish duo were below par over the two legs of play-offs.Although Lanzarote did score a goal in the first leg, his overall contribution wasnt up to the standardhe had set.

Coach Sergio Lobera was asked if Corominas and Lanzarote were distracted with the offers they are receiving from other Indian Super League (ISL) teams and whether that had an effect on their display.

I think talking about their future is not the same as talking about their performances in the semis. You have to analyze the Hector Neris Jersey team rather than them. They helped us a lot over the season. The rest of the team also helped us. It is difficult for us now and we don't have many positives. But if you were to evaluate the season, I 'm very happy Sean Rodriguez Jersey with their performances, he replied.

After the first leg of the play-offs, Lobera had bullishly mentioned that scoring in Chennai wouldnt be a big deal. Not only did they struggle to breach the Chennaiyin FC defence, they shipped in three goals as well.

I think we were exceptional at the start. Tommy Hunter Jersey We had opportunities to score. In the first 25 minutes, we were superior to Chennaiyin. The difficult part is within two-to-three minutes that we commit mistakes and the game is done. That point on things changed. We did lot of running and from that moment and we were not good Aaron Nola Jersey enough, said Lobera.

We made two errors but till then we were superior. These things decide the game and we weren't good there. When you are playing so well and then concede a goal, it affects you. Conceding twice in four minutes affects you more. I think we couldn't pull ourselves back into the game since then, he added.

Lobera was also questioned if he was pleased with the squad that had been a sembled for him, especially the Indian contingent given the i sues they have John Kruk Jersey had in the goalkeeping department.

I'm very happy with the performances of my Indian and foreign players. And from here on now, we have to analyze the season and start planning for the future and how to improve ourselves.

For most of the current Serie A season it seemed like the Serie A title in Italy would come down to AC Milan or Napoli. But after dropping points in recent weeks, now both are playing catch-up behind leader Inter Milan. Awin in their head-to-head on Sundayis critical to keep up the chase.

AC Milan hosts struggling Napoli with the two teams just three points apart near the top of the table. Given Inter's current form, we could be looking back on this game as a title elimination contest. A draw wouldn't serve much for either.

Milan (2nd,39 points) seems to haveturned things around after a pair of November lo ses, although a disappointing draw Ervin Santana Jersey to 14th-placed Udinese last time out has complicated its title bid. Still, the Ro sonerisit just four points back of leaders Inter and would move to within a point with a win.


Napoli (4th, 36 points), meanwhile, will consider itstitle hopes hanging by a thread with seven points separating it from Inter Milan. The Partenopei's scudetto dreams are already teetering courtesy of three straight winle s matches, and a failure to gather all three points at the San Siro could begin to put a top four finish and Champions League qualification at risk.

Both teams will look to prove their early season blitz wasn't just a flash in the Blank Jersey pan. Each club in this contest started the league campaignwith 12 unbeaten, only to stumble at the same time to open the door for Inter. AC Milan has collected eight points out of 18 available in its last six matches, while Napoli has just five in that same span.
