I disobeyed Tuchel against Real Madrid – Pulisic




Chelsea winger, Christian Pulisic has revealed he ignored Thomas Tuchel’s instruction against Real Madrid in the Champions League last season.

Pulisic netted for the Blues as the game ended 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The American has now recounted Tuchel’s orders as he embarked on the run for the goal.

“As I take off on the run, I hear Thomas Tuchel yelling from the sideline, ‘Christian, stay in the pocket, don’t make the run!’

“But I just had the feeling I’d find the space and get on the end of the pass, so I continued the run,” Pulisic wrote in his upcoming book ‘Christian Pulisic: My Journey So Far’.

Pulisic did come off the bench in the second leg against Madrid and assisted in Chelsea’s second goal during the 2-0 win.

Despite the change in coach, Pulisic was only a late substitute in Graham Potter’s first game in charge, a 1-1 draw with FC Salzburg in the Champions League last week.

EPL: Guardiola has promised to help me – Latest Premier league manager




New manager of Brighton, Roberto De Zerbi, has said that Pep Guardiola has promised to help him in matches with other clubs, except Manchester City.

The Brighton job is Zerbi’s first in England, but the Italian had managed clubs such as Benevento and Sassuolo in his native Italy, and had a short spell in charge of Shakhtar Donetsk last season.

And the 43-year-old said it was Pep Guardiola Guardiola who persuaded him to move to the Premier League, adding: “I spoke 

to Pep on Sunday evening, yes. He’s very happy that I’m on board here.

“He told me very good things about the club, and if I need, he will be very happy to help me – but of course not in the 

match we are playing against them!”

Getting the Brighton job was made possible for Zerbi with the sacking of Thomas Tuchel by the owners of Chelsea.

Todd Boehly, Chelsea’s co-owner, had a couple of weeks ago, sacked the German boss and replaced him with Graham Potter who 

was in charge of Brighton.

Sports: Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua




 
Joe Joyce is convinced Tyson Fury will beat Anthony Joshua in their £200m heavyweight showdown.

Joyce has had experience of sparring against both athletes and believes Fury holds the upper hand as AJ is too ‘wary of getting hit’.

It is likely that Joyce will face the winner of the Fury-AJ showdown, following his own fight against Oleksandr Usyk.

Joyce knows Joshua from their days on the GB boxing squad and feels the unified champion is ‘too negative in his style’.

Joyce credited AJ for ‘picking himself up’ after suffering a stunning seventh-round knockout defeat at the hands of Andy Ruiz Jr. However, he claims the 31-year-old is now too worried about getting hit.

When asked who he backed to win the Fury-AJ fight, Joyce told the Evening Standard, “I’m going with Fury because of his performances and the way he’s come back from his lowest point to beat Deontay Wilder for the WBC.

“I think that while Joshua’s picked himself up since losing to Andy Ruiz Jr, he’s kind of been a bit too negative in his style, and been a bit wary of the shots coming back at him.

“Don’t get me wrong, it’s a 50-50 fight, Joshua has got great strength, hand speed, dedication and motivation, and he’s very competitive. With Fury, you know he is mentally very strong, tactically as well.

“He’s unorthodox and hard to hit, he’s fast and he’s a bigger guy with the longer reach. For me, he has the edge.”

Joshua hit the canvas four times during his loss to Ruiz Jr. However, he reclaimed the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA titles in the December 2019 during their rematch.

Joshua won the fight by an unanimous decision after keeping his distance and taking Ruiz to the 12th round.
 
Some critics, including Joyce, felt AJ was too cautious against Ruiz. While some felt the ‘negative style’ Joyce refers to could also be seen against Kubrat Pulev in December. Punch
