OL Le approprié Moyens
Up on their feet, loud and affectionate, a crowd of close to 60,000 gave Antoine Griezmann a memorable send off on Tuesday in Lyon. Their information was more wishy-washy, but the gist of it is that everyone from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the player himself is desperate for the deal to happen, and that the prospect of signing a new deal in Madrid is virtually off the table. Four more starts for Varane followed (two wins, a draw and a defeat) before the Premier League paused for the October international break. The contract is two years with the option of one more. A real turn-up for the books, that one. The chances of a deadline-day move for Kylian Mbappé may be fading, but Real Madrid have secured one supremely talented Frenchman today. It’s nice to see Liverpool getting into the spirit of things by announcing that today. It’s pretty mind-blowing and I just can’t wait to get to work here. It’s given teams they play a bit of confidence. With 28.45 touches per 90 in the final third, Griezmann ranks in the 94th percentile in Europe; this means that he boasts an active involvement in the team’s play up the field, often linking up play thanks to his intelligent understanding of his teammates and positioning.
The initial deal to take him back to Atletico is a two-year loan, at €10m per season, which would trigger a €40m transfer if he plays a certain number of matches. I’m here to apply a touch of WD40 to the transfer window’s hinges before it slams shut tonight. “I’m delighted to be here. “I’m in a different place of course, as a player and as a person, from when I first walked in. They were reigning champions when they signed Griezmann, and they are champions again as they rehire him. The Burnley chairman Alan Pace said: “On behalf of everyone at Burnley Football Club, we are delighted to welcome Connor to Turf Moor. Breaking news: Burnley have signed the Wales international defender Connor Roberts from Swansea. N 2019/20, he suffered the longest absence from the team of his Spurs tenure after dislocating his elbow in a defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion in October, 2019, causing him to miss over three months and 23 matches. When Griezmann then did join Barcelona 12 months later, all those soft-focus declarations of loyalty and kinship with Atletico sounded utterly disingenuous. “I’ve loved every minute of it, even when I look back at the tough times, I was still enjoying being a part of this football club.
“Manchester United is a club that has always had a special place in my heart, and I have been overwhelmed by all the messages I have received since the announcement on Friday. Pendant trois jours, environ 150 enfants de chaque école peuvent être les stars de cette expérience d’apprentissage par un système de jeux dynamiques et innovants auxquels les joueurs du club participent aussi. Les droits des enfants sont énoncés dans les 54 articles de la Convention relative aux droits de l’enfant adoptée par l’Assemblée générale en 1989. Elle reconnaît le droit des garçons et des filles à un niveau de vie suffisant pour permettre leur développement physique, mental et social et à exprimer librement leurs opinions. Le Milieu du Ciel représente la place que se fait le sujet dans la vie sociale et devient de plus en plus important avec l’âge. In that, there’s a simple message to Griezmann: he needs to add his first Liga title to the other accolades he has achieved in an Atletico jersey, and to demonstrate he belongs in a starting XI where Suarez, Joao Felix and the popular Angel Correa vie for attacking places.
Thierry Henry, in first place, scored 51 times for his country, from 123 matches; Olivier Giroud, the veteran who was left out of the latest France squad, is on 46. Griezmann is still only 30, two shy of a century of caps, and has a goals-per-game scoring rate that closely mirrors Henry’s. It meant he was absent for United’s poorer periods of the season from mid-October to November. ✍️ Swansea City can confirm @ConnorRobs has joined @BurnleyOfficial for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance. I hope he and his manager can get the best out of him. You can only admire Henderson, who’s made the absolute most of himself as a player and as a man. If you win, it’s not like you’re the best player in the world and if you lose, you’re not the worst player in the world. Personal terms agreed and Bologna will receive €20m plus €3m add ons. “I will understand it if he is whistled by some of our fans,” Cerezo told Spanish radio’s El Larguero programme.
