Zidane really wants to train in Italy

Zinedine Zidane has not currently coached again after leaving Real Madrid. One day, Zizou wants to try out coaching a club in Italy.

Zidane was trusted to become the head coach of the Real Madrid senior team in 2016. He previously spent time as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant and coached the Castilla team.

Zidane’s achievements as Madrid coach were very good. The French football legend has won two LaLiga titles and three Champions Leagues.

Zidane is currently still not coaching after completing his second period at Madrid in 2021. Zidane has been linked with many top clubs as long as there is no new boat.

The 51 year old man is currently in Italy. Zidane came to attend the premiere of Marcello Lippi’s documentary. The famous Italian tactician was the figure who established Zidane as a top footballer at Juventus.

Italy is also a familiar country for Zidane. The winner of the 1998 World Cup title really wants to have a career in the world of coaching in Italy.

“Why not, anything can happen. I want to train in Italy one day,” Zidane told DAZN.

“I’m not coaching at the moment, but why not? I like Italy and I like football in Italy,” he stressed.

Massimiliano Allegri’s future at Juventus is currently still a question mark. So, it is not impossible for Zidane to return to the Bianconeri as a coach.

Summary of Indonesia’s Journey in the 2023 Asian Cup: Making New History

The Indonesian national team took their suitcases from the 2023 Asian Cup. This is the journey of the Garuda squad in this event, which made new history.

Indonesia will appear in the 2023 Asian Cup after finishing runner up in qualifying. Shin Tae-yong’s men finished second behind Jordan in Group A in qualifying in 2022.

In the final round, Indonesia was then joined in Group D. The Red and White Team had to compete with Japan, Iraq and Vietnam.

Indonesia came to the 2023 Asian Cup bringing a number of hereditary players. Apart from Elkan Baggott and Jordi Amat, four additional ammunition arrived, namely Sandy Walsh, Justin Hubner, Rafael Struick and Ivar Jenner.

The high target was then set by STY. The coach from South Korea is determined to qualify for the last 16.

Group Phase

In the group phase, the Indonesian national team started competition in Group D of the 2023 Asian Cup against Iraq. Playing at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, January 15 2024, Asnawi Mangkualam et al were beaten by Iraq 1-3.

Iraq’s goals were scored by Mohanad Ali, Osama Rashid and Aymen Hussein. Meanwhile, Indonesia only responded through Marselino Ferdinan’s goal.

Indonesia’s second match was then against Vietnam on (19/1). The rival from Southeast Asia was defeated with a score of 1-0.

Asnawi Mangkualam’s penalty ensured Indonesia won three points. Crucial numbers that helped ensure Indonesia qualified for the last 16.

In the last match, Indonesia then had to lose to the giant, Japan, (24/1). Indonesia lost again 1-3, and its position was threatened.

Luckily, Indonesia still qualified for the round of 16 via the best third place ranking. Indonesia finished fourth in the standings of the best third ranked teams along with Jordan, Palestine and Syria.

Indonesia’s certainty for the top 16 was determined by a draw between Kyrgyzstan vs Oman 1-1. The two were evenly matched so that Oman could not overtake Indonesia’s position in the standings for the best third ranked team, and had to settle for finishing fifth.

Qualifying for the last 16 of the 2023 Asian Cup is new history for the Indonesian national team. Because, Indonesia could only get stuck in the group phase in the previous four editions in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2007.

Round of 16

In the round of 16, Indonesia faced giants again. Australia, who won the 2015 edition, played at Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, Al Rayyan, Sunday (28/1/2024).

In that match, Indonesia lost badly to Australia. Ernando Ari Sutaryadi’s goal was broken four times, each time by Elkan Baggott’s suicide, then by Martin Boyle, Craig Goodwin and Harry Souttar.

This defeat made Indonesia end its work in the 2023 Asian Cup. Indonesia stopped in the round of 16, which would have been a new history for the Red and White team.

Throughout the 2023 Asian Cup, the Indonesian National Team scored 3 goals and conceded 10 times. Indonesia’s defense record is the worst, because Indonesia has never conceded that many goals in the previous four editions.

Indonesia vs Vietnam: Struick wants Garuda to be sharper

Rafael Struick wants Indonesia to be sharper when facing Vietnam than when facing Iraq. Vietnam’s solid back line will be a test for Garuda.

Indonesia vs Vietnam will be presented in the second match of Group D of the 2023 Asian Cup at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium, Friday (19/1/2024). In the first match, both sides lost.

The Garuda team was defeated by Iraq 1-3, while The Golden Stars lost to Japan 2-4. These results mean that both teams must win this match to maintain their hopes in the knockout phase.

Vietnam is currently in third place in Group D while Indonesia is at the bottom. They are three points behind Iraq and Japan in the top position.

However, Indonesia’s mission to get three points in the match against Vietnam will not be easy. The pillar of the Red and White Team, Rafael Struick, believes that Philippe Troussier’s children are a good team.

This was reflected when Vietnam fought Japan. Even though they lost, Vietnam caused trouble for Japan, who was the top seed in this event.

Struick wants his team to be sharper in the next match than they were against Iraq. In the match against the Mesopotamian Lions, Indonesia only fired one shot at goal from Iraq.

The solidity of Vietnam’s defense line is clearly a test for the quality of Shin Tae-yong’s attack. However, Struick is confident that Indonesia will be able to dismantle it in the duel later.

“After the first match, I think the evaluation is that we have to work even harder in the second match. Now we focus on the match against Vietnam,” Rafael was quoted as saying on the PSSI website.

“I saw their match against Japan. We will sharpen our game pattern in scoring goals against Iraq. Their defense is good, we will try to break it down. It will be difficult, but we have the opportunity to do it,” he added.

2023 Asian Cup: Indonesia is sprinkled with naturalization, Vietnam is not afraid

Vietnam will play the second match in Group D of the 2023 Asian Cup against Indonesia. The Garuda squad, which is studded with hereditary players, does not make opponents afraid.

Vietnam vs Indonesia will be presented in the second match of Group D of the 2023 Asian Cup. The match will be held at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium, Doha, Friday (19/1/2024).

Both teams both lost in their first match. Vietnam was beaten by Japan 2-4, while Indonesia was silenced by Iraq 1-3

The two Southeast Asian representatives will fight again on the Asian Cup stage, after previously meeting frequently in the AFF Cup. Indonesia now comes with a different squad.

Indonesia came to the 2023 Asian Cup bringing many hereditary players. Four additional hereditary players were brought in apart from Elkan Baggott and Jordi Amat, namely Sandy Walsh, Ivar Jenner, Rafael Struick and Justin Hubner, who all play in Europe.

The six hereditary players did not make Vietnam afraid. Defender Vo Minh Trong admitted that his team was ready to serve him and achieve the best results.

“Indonesia’s advantage is its enthusiasm and the presence of naturalized players. I know their squad has 5 or 6 naturalized European players. However, facing Indonesia or any opponent, the Vietnamese team always plays with a spirit of dedication, determination to achieve the best results,” said Vo Minh Trong, reported by Thanh Nien media.

The match will also be a determining factor for Vietnam and Indonesia regarding their fate in the 2023 Asian Cup. Vo Minh Trong admitted that his team had prepared as best as possible.

“In terms of performance, the coach has prepared it, I won’t reveal it,” he said.

“And we are always ready to fight, because this is an important match that determines the Vietnamese team’s ability to continue moving forward,” explained the 22-year-old Vietnamese player.

Dramatic Win Over Newcastle Proof of Man City’s Champion Mentality

Pep Guardiola was enthusiastic about seeing Manchester City’s dramatic victory over Newcastle United. It’s acknowledged that tough wins like these are sometimes necessary.

Manchester City recorded a comeback when they visited St James’ Park, Sunday (14/1/2024) early morning WIB, in the continuation of the Premier League. Having taken the lead through Bernardo Silva, the Citizens then fell behind due to goals from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon.

Kevin de Bruyne’s entry in the 69th minute was the catalyst for Man City’s revival. He scored a goal five minutes later, then provided an assist for Oscar Bobb in the 91st minute.

This victory is crucial for Manchester City who are trying to continue to stick with Liverpool. Pep Guardiola’s troops were left behind in the championship competition last November-December, but then gained momentum, especially after winning the Club World Cup.

“It was a very good match, sometimes it’s better to win that way for the team, for everything,” said Pep Guardiola, quoted by Sky Sports.

“It was an extraordinary performance from the team, we played with great character. They showed me that they want to be in the competition, to fight until the end to defend the title,” he added.

Manchester City managed to win in the Premier League in the November-December period. Erling Haaland et al have only won once in six matches.

Haaland Still Injured, Can Only Play at the End of January

Erling Haaland is still unable to play for Manchester City due to injury. The Norwegian bomber is predicted to make a comeback at the end of January.

Haaland has been absent from Man City since early December 2023. He has a bone problem and has missed the Sky Blues’ last eight matches.

The latest news shows that Haaland has started training with the team before the meeting against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup. However, he was not included in Man City’s starting line up in that match.

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, admitted that Erling Haaland’s injury took longer than expected. According to him, the 23-year-old bomber still needs to rest before returning to the field.

“He had a slight problem with his leg. The doctors decided to rest for one week and will start again in Abu Dhabi,” said Guardiola about Haaland’s injury, reported by The Sun.

“It’s a bone injury, it takes time. With every injury, you can do anything, but it’s a matter of time,” he added.

“Hopefully by the end of this month he will be ready. That’s a little more than we expected,” said Guardiola.

It is certain that Erling Haaland will not play when Manchester City clashes with Newcastle United, Sunday (14/1) early morning WIB. The Sky Blues then entered a two-week break before playing against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup.
