Italian club Juventus are extremely close to winning the title for the second consecutive season, but they are not prepared to rest on their laurels.
The general director of the club, Beppe Marotta, has said that Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben and Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez are transfer targets for the club in the summer. Chilean winger Sanchez has struggled for form since his £ 35 million move from Udinese to Barcelona. Hence, there have been rumours that he may return to Italian football, where he enjoyed the best football of his career.
Despite being the underdogs going into the match against Uruguay, Chile managed to get a 2-0 win in the World Cup qualifying match. After this crucial victory, Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli has said that his team got the reward for putting in a great performance.
The 53-year-old said that his team totally deserved the three points from this match. Chile came into the encounter against Uruguay having recently lost the World Cup qualifying match against Peru. As a result, there was a lot of pressure on Sampaoli to deliver a win in this match.
Chile managed to win the second consecutive game after the arrival of the new manager Jorge Sampaoli when they won 2-1 against a strong Egypt side.
Chile recently brought in the manager Jorge Sampaoli after a poor run of results that left their aspirations to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil in tatters. Since his arrival, Sampaoli has been in charge of the team two matches. He opened his account with the national team in a 3-0 win over Haiti. It was an impressive result, but his team faced strong opposition in the form of Egypt in a friendly match.
Chile have recently appointed Jorge Sampaoli as the new manager of the national team. His work will be beginning with the matches against Haiti and Senegal. The manager has named up the squad that will be taking part in these friendly matches, and it is largely composed of the domestic based players.
The Chilean national football team has decided to part ways with the manager Claudio Borghi after a run of poor results, which has left the team struggling to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The team has lost the last five matches without exception including the friendly match against Serbia.
The Chilean national team manager Claudio Borghi has said that he will not resign from his position as the national team manager, despite being coming under intense criticism for a poor run of results in recent matches.
Claudio Borghi took over from the current Athletic Bilbao manager Marcelo Bielsa, who had worked wonders with the national team prior to his resignation. Marcelo Bielsa resigned from the national team on the account of falling out with the new board. He had taken the Chilean team to the second round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
The Chilean national team manager Claudio Borghi has said that he is likely to use the Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal in a defensive position when Chile take on Columbia in the World Cup qualifying match. The 25-year-old Arturo Vidal is regarded as one of the best players within the team.
The Ecuador national team manager Reinaldo Rueda has said that he is extremely excited at the prospect of facing Chile prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Ecuador and Chile have been extremely exciting in the World Cup qualification phases up until now.
The Chilean national team manager Claudio Borghi has said that the national media should be having a look at the results after praising former coach Marcelo Bielsa for the success of the national team in the last few matches.
Marcelo Bielsa is regarded as one of the best managers when it comes to national teams. He has been able to get the Chilean national team to great heights under his regime. He is currently the manager of Spanish club Athletic Bilbao, whom he has been able to take to the Europa league and Copa del Ray final this season.
Chelsea midfielder John obi Mikel has said that Chilean midfielder Alexis Sanchez was responsible for the red card for John Terry in the recent semi-final clash between the two clubs.
Chelsea were coming into the match with a 1-0 advantage from the first leg at Stamford Bridge, but they were facing an uphill task to defend Barcelona from scoring in the second leg. Things turned out extremely bad for Chelsea in the first half after they went a goal down to Sergio Busquets tap in, while John Terry was also sent off for the knee on Chilean midfielder Alexis Sanchez.
