Bayern boss Pep Guardiola: I am not dead yet!

first_img CEST 29/04/2016 Upd. at 18:22 A Bayern Munich win over Borussia Monchengladbach this Saturday – or if Borussia Dortmund slip up against Wolfsburg – would hand the Bavarians their fourth consecutive league title, the third won by Pep Guardiola since he took over.  “If next week we lose [to Atletico], you can kill me, but I am not dead yet,” advised Guardiola, who spoke about the criticism he’s received after the loss at the Vicente Calderon.  For that reason, and with the team still alive in the German Cup and the Champions League, despite a semi-final first leg defeat to Atletico Madrid, Guardiola was optimistic and confident in a press conference on Friday.  “You can’t imagine how happy I am that we are in these situations. We are well placed to win La Liga, we are in the final of the cup and I’m satisifed with how we ended the game against Atletico,” the Catalan coach said.  “I’ve had a good time in Germany, but I’ve had to cope with things that did not happen at Barcelona. For that reason, I’m going. I am not capable of winning the treble each year and I am not ready to win the Champions League each year, but I have had a good time and I will have a good time in the weeks I have left in Germany,” added the man from Santpedor.

We are in a position right now, in America more importantly, where this whole race thing has taken over,’ he said.Advertisement ‘One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us… he is, he’s dividing us and what I have noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sport to divide.‘That’s something that I can’t relate to because I know that sport was the first time I was around someone who was white.’‘I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me and we became very good friends,’ he said.‘Sport has never been something that divides people, it has always been something that brings people together.’  Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Sergio Romero has earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Manchester United goalkeeper broke the record for the number of goals scored from the halfway line in a minute.Advertisement Romero competed with teammates Ander Herrera and Phil Jones for the record. The Argentine managed 20 goals in a minute. Jones managed 19, and Herrera could muster 14. The previous record stood at 5, and Romero absolutely annihilated it.Advertisement Adam Brown was the Guinness World Records adjudicator, and he explained the rules for the attempts. The shot had to be strictly from behind the halfway line. Also, the previous shot need not go in for the player to take the next attempt.All three players were exhausted after the minute, and it is definitely not as easy as it sounds. Herrera said, “I didn’t expect it was going to be that tough.”Advertisement Even Romero, despite winning it was panting at the end. “I need some water and oxygen,” he said afterward. This is Romero’s fourth season at Old Trafford, and he was signed in 2015 from Sampdoria. He has made just 43 appearances thus far. The major reason for that is none other than David De Gea. He should return to the side against Wolves in the FA Cup on March 16. Advertisementlast_img read more
