Coronavirus: Andre Villas-Boas ready for Ligue 1 to finish in December, change schedule for next season

Published

on

With sport stopped by coronavirus, Andre Villas-Boas offered a solution for when football resumes in Europe.

Andre Villas-Boas believes Ligue 1 should be prepared to finish as late as December before changing its schedule ahead of next season.

Sport has been brought to a standstill by the coronavirus pandemic, with Europe’s top football leagues postponed with uncertainty over when they will resume.

Villas-Boas, the Marseille coach, said this season should be finished to help the clubs amid financial worries.

“Currently, all the clubs are in a catastrophic economic situation,” he told RMC on Friday.

“It is very difficult for everyone. The most viable, for the health of the Ligue 1 teams, would be to leave until December to finish the current season, or hopefully in November.”

Villas-Boas said the football schedule should then change heading into the 2022 World Cup.

The 2022 World Cup is scheduled to be played in November and December of that year in Qatar.

“From 2021, we should base ourselves on the civil calendar,” Villas-Boas said.

“That way, we will come to an agreement with the 2022 World Cup in Qatar which will take place in winter.

“And then, why not try to come back on a more classic calendar?”

End of the road for Choupo-Moting at PSG?

Published

on

Recruited by Thomas Tuchel  as a “supplement” player, Choupo-Moting was quickly adopted internally, both by the squad’s managers and by the players but his performances were below expectation, giving way to a series of disapprobation from PSG fans and sports analysts.

His heroic entry  against Atalanta with the winning goal at the 93rd minute in the quarter-finals of the Champions League therefore changed prospects and attitude towards him. Fans and some players would like the management to extend the 31-year-old for another season, as L’Equipe reported on Monday, the day after the final defeat to Bayern (0-1).

Unfortunately, the Indomitable Lion didn’t feature regularly for PSG (9 appearance in the Ligue 1 championship), but he can still make a decent reserve.
According to PSG pundits, Leonardo (PSG’s sporting Director) is working on the arrival of an additional international-level center-forward, called to be a “joker” behind the Mbappe-Icardi-Neymar trio, or even to become a starter in case Icardi doesn’t live up to expectation.

Under these conditions, it is far from certain that he is offering a new lease to Choupo Moting, as he looks forward to the recruitment of a free agent forward who will be offering more guarantees than the Cameroonian.
