Nacional reacted quickly to the second goal and managed to beat Casillas in 40 with a goal scored by Honduran Bryan Rochez.

Iker Casillas’s epic dig at Jose Mourinho

"This interview is typical of someone who is at the end of his career. Regarding what he says about me, when he says that he never confronted me, it is not true. He faced me and in a way that he does better than anyone: hidden"said the Portuguese.

Iker Casillas has shown that his tension with Mourinho remains intact and has not stopped when launching the following tweet, in which he does not name the Portuguese but he understands everything: "According to a Portuguese newspaper, someone said that a player like me (37 years old) is at the end of his career. Completely agree! My question is, for that newspaper: In the case of coaches, when and at what moment do you see that they are no longer to lead a team or train?"

This is Casillas’s tweet:

Aurelio De Laurentiis, president and main shareholder of Naples, advanced that he does not plan to sit down to negotiate for the Spanish midfielder Fabián Ruiz unless he receives an offer of one hundred million euros. Speaking to the Italian newspaper ‘Corriere dello Sport’, De Laurentiis made it clear that if Barcelona and Real Madrid, two of the clubs that are showing the most interest in the Spanish international, knock on his door, they will have to be very persuasive.


On at 15:00 CEST

The Naples president referred to the future of two of his players with more suitors and pointed out that "Fabian has three years left on his contract with Napoli and Koulibaly two. There is no problem. If Manchester City, Manchester United or PSG arrive with 100 million, I would think about it and most likely I would sell them, as long as they want".

De Laurenttis argued that Naples does not need to sell to balance its accounts, so "I don’t even consider an offer of 60 million. I do not need money. I see teams with three or four hundred million debt. I don’t owe anything to anyone".

goal, renewal

In fact, the partenopeo club is very interested in renewing Fabian’s contract, despite the fact that he still has three more seasons left. Its leaders intend to extend it for two more years in exchange for including a termination clause of more than 100 million euros.

De Laurentiis is very aware that the Spanish midfielder is in the sights of Barcelona and Real Madrid, but for the moment he is rejecting all proposals to sit down to negotiate.

According to Record, Pepe is very close to returning to FC Porto, a club where he was already during the 2004-2007 seasons, until he signed for Real Madrid.

The 35-year-old central defender recently terminated his contract with Besiktas and is currently without a club.

The player’s football career began in Portugal, until he signed for Real Madrid for 30 million euros. He spent almost 10 seasons in the white team, until in June 2017 he switched to Turkish football. He was only at Besiktas for a season and a half.

Now, due to economic problems at the Turkish club, the player is without a team, although it seems that his future will be at Porto. In summer rumors of the possible return of the player were already being heard, but it remained to be seen what happened to the Turkish club. Now Pepe is free, so closing the acquisition of the player is an easy task.

It should be noted that the defender, in addition to triumphing and winning several titles at Real Madrid, is also an absolute international with the Portuguese national team, with which he was proclaimed European champion in 2016, in addition to playing three Eurocup finals and three Copa del World.

Sporting de Portugal won this Sunday at home against Braga 3-0 and does not get off the fight to enter the ‘Champions zone’, currently occupied by Porto and Benfica. A defeat would have meant saying goodbye to trying to return to the top continental competition. For their part, "minphotos" they follow third, five points behind the leader.

Sporting entered the game much better and managed to take the lead in the 34th minute thanks to a goal from their fittest player, Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes, from a free kick.

After the break, the Dutch forward Bas Dost was in charge of certifying the victory with two goals, which placed him as the top scorer of the championship. The first was achieved as soon as the second half started by transforming a penalty committed by Claudemir.

Napoli new stumble, which already says goodbye to the ‘Scudetto’

The 2-0 was already a very difficult mountain to climb for the visitors who saw how in 68 ‘Dost scored his second goal, defining very coldly when he was alone against Tiago Sá. Braga was inferior throughout the match and thus moves away from their aspirations to assault the leadership of Porto.

Easy. Porto did it very easily to defeat a Setúbal who was no rival. Those of Conçeiçao were far superior to their adversary, who also had to play for more than half an hour with one less. The goals of Herrera and Soares (2-0) were enough to add the victory and continue as leaders of the Primeira Liga for another week.

Porto came out from the first minute with the intention of sealing the victory as soon as possible. And so he did. Herrera, before the quarter hour of the game, put his team ahead on the scoreboard in what appeared to be a match to score.

However, they say that appearances can be deceiving. Those of Conceiçao were a pylon hammer but they did not know how to finish the task before the break. And that they had great occasions to do it. But they lacked a punch that Setúbal failed to take advantage of. Adrián had more than one but could not beat Cristiano.

On resumption, the script practically didn’t budge. I say practically because Setúbal saw how they had to endure for more than half an hour with one less player. Faced with this situation, those of Conceiçao managed the game at will until they decided to open a gap. Soares took advantage of Telles’ assistance to make it 2-0 and calm. Do Dragao once again celebrated a triumph.

Porto: Casillas; Manafa, Felipe, Militao, Telles; Corona, Pereira (Óliver Torres, 30 ‘), Herrera, Otávio (André Pereira, 61’); Adrián (Fernando, 77 ‘) and Soares.
