Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi has said that the team must provide more than decent performances in order to secure victories over the likes of Juventus and Napoli. The Serie A side have made a poor start to the campaign after back-to-back defeats against the above-mentioned duo and this sees them rooted to the drop zone.
Speaking after the Juventus game, Inzaghi admitted that the team were decent against both Juventus and Napoli but they were also guilty of some poor passing which cost them against the Italian heavyweights, he said: “I am not satisfied, no. We had two fairly decent performances, but that’s not enough when you are up against Napoli and Juventus. We were too soft, missing some really easy passes. The deadlock was broken by a great Miralem Pjanic goal, but we have to do more in these fixtures. Everyone has to step up and improve, it’s superfluous to talk about one player or another.”

Corinthians right back FagnerConservaLemos, simply known as Fagner, celebrated his inclusion in the World Cup list to represent the Brazilian national team, with the video going viral online. The fullback was a surprise addition as Coach Tite named his killer squad expected to bring home the World Cup from Russia.
DaniAlves was the natural choice but after the Paris St Germain star picked up an injury in the French Cup final, Tite had to look elsewhere. Rather than select just another foreigner, he opted to pick a home-based man.

Speculation has increased surrounding the future of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, who has had very little game time at Tottenham this season. It has been increasingly speculated that manager Mauricio Pochettino, who came to the club only in the summer, does not see Paulinho as part of his plans. Former manager Andre Villas-Boas played a key role in bringing the Brazilian to White Hart Lane. Unsurprisingly, Paulinho was a regular first-team player in his first season at the club after having cost £ 16 million. He found his importance within the team reduced after the arrival of Tim Sherwood as the replacement for Villas-Boas.
This season, though, it has been shocking to see the midfielder utilised for just 29 minutes in the Premier League so far. He has featured in two Europa League matches, which is widely seen as the platform for Tottenham reserve players to make a name for themselves. Rejecting any speculation of a fallout with Paulinho, Pochettino says that the midfielder is not featuring only because of the World Cup hangover. The 26-year-old was part of the Brazilian team that suffered an embarrassing exit at the World Cup 2014. The lack of regular game time has led to Paulinho being linked with a return to his former club Corinthians.
“No, no Tottenham player, including Paulinho, will be loaned to Brazil. There is no chance. Paulinho arrived late, one of the last players to join the squad after the World Cup. There isn’t any problem. He is training and doing well, it’s just a technical decision,” said the Spurs manager. The fact that Tottenham are struggling for consistency in results especially in the league could force Pochettino to take a look at including Paulinho in the team much earlier than expected. Tottenham have won just three games in the league so far this season.
Brazilian club Corinthians are likely to part company with Romarinho in the next few days after it has emerged that the club have agreed to a transfer fee from El Jaish. Corinthians are the last non-European club to have won the FIFA Club World Cup after beating Chelsea in 2012. However, they have had to pay for the success by losing a number of important players over the years. The defensive minded team are currently fourth in the table after having taken 32 points from their 18 matches this season. The loss of Romarinho will be especially hard to take.
The 23-year-old is a key player for the club after having risen to prominence in the last few years. He scored seven goals in 33 matches during the stunning 2012 campaign. His goalscoring record has improved tremendously in 2014 after he has got 12 goals in 36 matches. The player, though, will be bringing a substantial revenue to the club. It is believed that Corinthians have managed to agree a €7.5 million fee for the striker. Considering that the Brazilian economy has slipped into recession over the last few months, it is vital that Corinthians bring in money through the sale of players in order to keep the club going.
“Forever in my heart,” said Romarinho on his Twitter account which virtually appeared to confirm the fact that he is about to depart the club. Romarinho has been at Corinthians since 2012 after having signed from Bragantino. Despite being only 23 years old, he has already won a number of key titles like the Copa Libertadores, FIFA Club World Cup, Campeonato Paulista, and Recopa Sudamericana. Since much of the economic rights of the player is owned by third-parties, it is believed that Corinthians will get only 40% of the transfer fee.
Nicolas Lodeiro recently completed the switch from Botafogo to Corinthians. He has been one of the high-profile transfers in the Brazilian football this campaign after this switch has reportedly cost Corinthians around £ 1.5 million. He had signed a contract with Corinthians back in May, but the Uruguay striker has completed the move just now. After joining his new team, he stated that he is extremely delighted to be part of a huge club that has always competed for titles. He says that playing for Corinthians is a huge step up from playing for Botafogo where he has been playing for the last two seasons.
Last season, Lodeiro was one of the influential player from the pitch after scoring 14 goals in 50 appearances for the Brazilian club. It was his best ever season till date. After missing out on a place in the Uruguay national team for the World Cup 2014, Lodeiro will be hoping that playing for a club like Corinthians helped him get into the eyes of the Uruguay manager, Oscar Tabarez. The 25-year-old will be joining the new club at a time when poor form has seen them slip down the table. They are trailing table leaders Cruzeiro by five points after having played 13 matches.
“I’ve finally arrived. Time to do my part to show that I want to play and win many titles here. I’ll try to do the best in every game. My feature is to not lose the ball. It is a very important stage in my career to come to a big team like Corinthians. I want to play and do my best here. I’ve been through a tough time but that’s in the past,” said the attacking midfielder. Corinthians have managed just three victories in the last five matches, but they have been unbeaten during this period.
