~~  I get it from the referee’s perspective… But #Zlatan is going to say whatever the hell he wants, including embarrassing you in front of the cameras while calling you out in front of the cameras on TWO seperate occassions.

By the way, #IbraCadabra dropped THREE goals on Lorient and that’s why he wanted the ball…..

Hristo Stoichkov Crushes Louis van Gaal – Praises Jose Mourinho

Filed under: EPL News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | English Premier League Highlights, Soccer News

Louis van Gaal

~~  Just bringing out the flame thrower on the Manchester United boss….. And trust me when I say that there are plenty of players inside that lockeroom that probably have the same exact feelings right now.  But that’s thing, how many players have the ability to stat their true feelings when one person truly can control their destiny whether at club or country?

“I have no respect for Van Gaal. He’s garbage as a person,” Stoichkov said of the current United manager.  Once, we went to the Bernabeu after I had been injured on my knee and he made me play left-back.

“On another day, while I was injured, he went to my wife and asked her how it was possible that she married such a bad person like me.  My wife had responded that I had won the Ballon d’Or.

“The happiest day of my life was when I joined Barcelona and the saddest when I left. And it was Van Gaal’s fault.”

The Bulgaria legend’s feelings for Van Gaal are in stark contrast to his thoughts on Jose Mourinho, who was an assistant to Sir Bobby Robson during his time at the Nou Camp.

“Do not think that Mourinho was a simple interpreter or assistant,” said Stoichkov, now 49.  ”He was already a coach, but he never thought he was worth more than [Bobby] Robson.

“Mourinho understood everything… he knew everything about our team, and our opponents.”

~~ ANOTHER television revenue / specific market announcement for Major League Soccer on the backside of SkySports / EuroSport / Globosat deals announced in the past four weeks….. Who’s up next?  IMG just racking up deals left and right.

Major League Soccer (MLS) announced today that it has partnered with Abu Dhabi Sports Channel, owned by Abu Dhabi Media Company, to televise league matches live across the Middle East and North Africa, reaching 25 countries throughout the region. This marks the first time MLS matches will be telecast on Abu Dhabi Sports Channels.

As part of this four-year agreement, starting with the 2015 season, the United Arab Emirates based broadcaster will telecast at least two MLS regular season matches per week, as well as the AT&T MLS All-Star Game, the MLS Cup Playoffs and MLS Cup, on the Abu Dhabi Sports Channels (Abu Dhabi Al Riyadiya and Abu Dhabi Al Riyadiya 2). In addition, the broadcaster will have exclusive rights to pay and free-to-air (FTA) TV, including digital live streaming of MLS matches, allowing for unprecedented coverage across the region.

“Our new partnership with Abu Dhabi Media Company is another affirmation of the growing interest in MLS around the globe, as both a league and media property,” said Gary Stevenson, President and Managing Director, MLS Business Ventures.  “We are excited to be partnered with a market leader in sports media and look forward to providing fans in the Middle East and North Africa with access to the high-quality programming MLS has to offer.”

The deal with Abu Dhabi Media Company was negotiated with MLS’ new global media rights agent, IMG, as part of a continued focus to bring MLS to more fans around the world. The partnership comes on the heels of recent television agreements with Globosat in Brazil, Sky Sports in the UK and pan-European broadcaster Eurosport.
