Roma sign Federico Fazio… £2.8m

Roma is one of the the best teams in italy, currently with the transfer window open all of the best and upcoming sensations are getting signed, but let’s talk about Federico Fazio. What we know is that he currently plays (played) for Spurs, which is Tottenham Hotspurs, London. Which means he did play in the Premier League. Spurs have always had a good line up and a very strong position in the Premier League (finishing 2nd in the 2016/2017 season). Fazio plays centre defence or commonly known as centre back, Tottenham have confirmed the sale of Federico Fazio with a big sale!

Federico Fazio, is from Argentina, Buenos Aires. Aged 30, which in football is a very good age. Football has an early retirement age compared to most jobs with players retiring around 40/45 years old, but at the age of 30 Fazio knows that he is in the prime of his career and the move to Roma, is only going to make him an even stronger player.

Roma have paid £2.8 million for Federico Fazio and in my opinion this is a fantastic move. Federico Fazio will bring some spirit to the team and a new out look, you can not fault Roma for wanting Federico Fazio, he is a fantastic player, the moves and spirit he is going bring is going to be insane. The pace on Fazio is crazy, he is named one of the best defenders and he lives up to that, when you watch him play you know that he wants to succeed, his passes are very accurate and he knows where he wants it to go. His skills all combine and give him an advance on other defenders, his speed and his consistency are just some of the things which put him above the skill level other players. Federico Fazio has a goal of wining back to back Europa league, he knows that he is in the prime of his career and I think we have more amazing experience to come from Federico Fazio!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my post!

Djokovic “Shock Therapy”…

The Shock Therapy that will change Djokovic’s life, will it be worth the risk?

Novak Djokovic is one of the most fantastic tennis players of all time. Djokovic has been running second rank for a very long time with his main completion being Andy Murray of Scotland, United Kingdom. His passion for the sport is amazing. Djokovic has always had a fantastic team behind him, building his career including some of the best coaches in the industry. One being Marian Valda, former professional began coaching Djokovic in 2006, later replaced with Boris Becker, who left late December last year. Marian Valda remained with the team and was there last month at Monte Carlo Masters. Where Djokovic was beaten in the last quarter finals by David Goffin, who was 117 rank.

Djokovic has parted with his coaches and the team as he think’s it will be great for his career however; he does express how grateful he is for all the support he has received from his coaches and team in the previous seasons. In an interview with Djokovic, he expressed to the BBC that he was ‘forever grateful for the friendship, professionalism and commitment to my career goals.’ [BBC Sport, 2017.]

Vajda does think it is a good career move, Djokovic has the support of both coaches Becker and Vajda. When speaking with The Guardian, Vajda expressed his support for Djokovic, ‘I gave everything I could as a coach, I am very proud of the results. We arrived to the point where we all realised we need new energy in the team. Novak Djokovic can do so much more and I’m sure he will’ [The Guardian, 2017]

My Opinion and Conclusion:

I feel this will be a great move for Djokovic, however with his new matches starting now. Will it be a risk which will pay off? We will see. Djokovic has always had brilliant support behind him, which has build him to become one of the best and most feared by newcomers, who will be the new coach to bring his career to the next stage and to the stage that we have all be waiting for. The passion will never leave Djokovic ‘I am a hunter, and my biggest goal is to find the winning spark on the court again.’ BBC Sport 2017. Will getting rid of his backbone coaches and fitness coaches work… ‘A statement on the Serb’s website on Friday confirmed that the coach Marian Vajda, fitness coach Gebhard Phil Gritsch and physiotherapist Miljan Amanovic will end their association.’ The Guardian, 2017. Good luck Djokovic, you’re a fantastic player and we hope to see you succeed even more in your career! Time will tell.
