According to The Guardian, the Russian Football Association filed a complaint with UEFA about the coach of Ukraine national team Oleksandr Petrakov and asked for his disqualification.

The Russians disliked Petrakov’s comments to the foreign press about Russia’s war against Ukraine in recent months.

In Russia, they believe that the coach discriminates against Russian athletes with his calls and insults the Russian people.

In particular, there was a quote in which Petrakov spoke in March about his readiness to arm and destroy the invaders who tried to invade Kiev.

UEFA said it would not comment on the complaint from the RFU for now.

KAKA: ‘The League of Nations has made South Americans less competitive’

Legendary Brazilian midfielder Kaka evaluated the Brazilian and Argentina teams’ chances to win the 2022 World Cup:

“Will Argentina or Brazil win the upcoming World Cup? I hope, but European football is at a very good level right now. Also, with the Nations League we have a disadvantage that we can no longer play friendly matches with the best teams in Europe, and that’s Brazil South America. It makes us less competitive as it wins almost every game in

This fact complicates the development of the national team, but it is true that both teams, Brazil and Argentina, performed very well in the World Cup and had excellent players.

I really like the current Argentina team, they are very mature and have a good coach. In short, both Brazil and Argentina have great chances to win this World Cup.”

Abubakar Kamara cannot be ruled out following the path opened up by Manolas

Published

At Olympiakos so far they are not happy with Aboubakar Kamara’s competitive presence and are reportedly open to the player’s version of concession, as was the case with Kostas Manolas.

THE Abubakar Kamara was acquired by Olympiacos on June 28, with Piraeus paying PAE a sizeable sum to Aris and Fulham. Despite joining the lively Red and White squad relatively early, the Mauritanian international striker has only come on as a half-time substitute in their opening game against Maccabi Haifa and a quarter-time substitute against Nantes in France.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old forward was suffering from a muscle injury that kept him from training for several weeks, but the bottom line is that Olympiacos has already played 13 official games in Greece and Europe and the player has been practically absent until today.

According to their own statements, the red-whites are now open to the concession of Abubakar Kamara and are weighing all the data.

Because his case is complicated

However, this is not an easy task. Aboubakar has a contract with Olympiakos until the summer of 2025 and a team should be found that will cover his annual contract and at the same time give an amount to the red and white.

Also, most markets are closed and Kamara can be given to a UAE team as was the case with Manolas.

Then there is the question of the European list. Should the veteran striker be dealt out, Mitchell will have only Arabi and Ouizho available as centre-forwards in the four remaining Europa League group games. Matches that will decide Olympiakos’ future in European competitions and beyond January.

It is recalled that Bakabu only has the right to participate in the league and cup, so the Spanish coach is covered for the national competitions.

The next twenty-four hours are awaited with particular interest, both in the case of Aboubakar Kamara and the rest of the players who may be granted the number Mitchell has requested crossed off the list. The solutions are concrete, either sale or transfer to Olympiakos B’, or leaving a player on a free transfer.
