Why Mane Wants To Leave Liverpool

After a scintillating UCL final which saw Liverpool fall short to Real Madrid, African star and Senegalese attacker Sadio Mane announced that he wants to leave Anfield. The 30-year-old revealed before the match that he has an announcement and it has since been revealed that the reason behind wanting to leave, all comes down to wages. Mane is currently earning around £100 000 per week; he is currently outside of the Reds' 10 highest earners. According to Sport Bild, the reason for Mane's refusal to extend his stay with Liverpool is because the club were against giving the forward the weekly £393 000 wage package he had requested.

Another hot topic that has been brought up; is Argentina thrashing Italy in the third ever edition of the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of champions. This fixture sees the winners of the COPA America lock horns with the winners of the European Championship. La Albiceleste have now gone a record 32 games unbeaten with an attack that seems to be too menacing for most opponents. This is the second major international trophy that Lionel Messi has lifted.

On the latest episode of The International News Desk, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discusses the future of Sadio Mane with Soccer Laduma International News correspondent Kurt Buckerfield. The gents also discuss the latest with Lionel Messi and Argentina emerging victorious over Italy in Thursday night’s Finalissima as well as a few other of the biggest transfer stories.

Is Haaland The Final Piece To City’s Puzzle?

The talking point on everybody’s lips from this week’s International scene is the confirmed signing of Erling Haaland. The 21-year-old is set to join Manchester City after his release clause was activated for a measly £60 million. Manchester City of course haven’t had a world-class, out and out number 9 since Sergio Ageruo left them in 2021 and the citizens are looking to bolster up their already world-class squad with some attacking firepower to hopefully win them their first-ever UEFA Champions League trophy in the next season.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts and Soccer Laduma International News Correspondent Kurt Bucckerfield also talk about the Erik ten Hag regime at Manchester United with a complete rebuild looking to be the case. It is said that the Dutch tactician wants to get Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt to join the Red Devils. Let us not forget that these two youngsters worked with ten Hag at Ajax and with the likes of Donny van de Beek set to return from his loan spell, the trio could be reunited!

Has Pep Failed In Europe?

Ever since Manchester City’s takeover in 2008, they have been a force to be reckoned with. The citizens have spent over £1 Billion since then but yet, the UEFA Champions League trophy is still out of their reach. Their legendary manager Pep Guardiola has failed on multiple occasions to bring them European glory, however as history repeats itself, this time around is not meant to be. Having boasted one of the most impressive squads in this year’s competition, with the likes of De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, one questions how they managed to let a lead slip like they did, allowing 2 goals in a matter of seconds against Real Madrid. There are many opinions as to why this might’ve been the case. Speaking on the SL Podcast. Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield thinks that Pep doesn’t have that much of an emotional connection with his players, such as rival coach Jurgen Klopp. If that is the case, Sean Roberts will have something to say about it!

On The latest episode of the International News Desk, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discusses the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League with Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield, which saw Pep Guardiola fail to reach the final again.

Let The Overhaul Begin!

With current Ajax Amsterdam coach Erik ten Hag putting pen to paper to become Manchester United’s manager, the Dutchman requested to have full control over which players come into the club and which players leave. This may come as a shock, but putting all of this into the manager's hands and not the people at the top, means he will have full control over the style in the near future. Ten Hag is a super-genius when it comes to tactics and playing style, with a heavy emphasis on youth; hence why he has openly stated that an overhaul is on the cards. Many players such as Pogba and Cavana will be leaving as free agents, but ten Hag is said to sell others such as Mata, Matic, Jones, and Bailey. He will most likely to replace these players (12 in total) with some exciting youth, with a budget of between £100-£120 million but with the sale of 6 players, that budget will no doubt increase.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape town goalie Sean Roberts and Soccer Laduma International News Correspondent Kurt Buckerifeld also talk about the first leg matches of the UEFA Champions League which saw some incredible football being played. The gents also take some time to discuss Neymar and his potential move away from PSG, after it has been said that the Brazilian has lost touch with the club.

Is Shalulile Good Enough For Europe?

As the PSL heads towards the business end of the season, it is becoming more and more unlikely the log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns will be caught as they now hold a gap of 14 points. Second Placed Royal AM seems too far behind the Brazilians. Another aspect pot this season that seems unlikely is Peter Shalulile not receiving the Player of the Season Award. The Namibian striker has scored an impressive 21 goals so far this season, after securing a phenomenal record of 2 hatricks in back-to-back matches. The 28-year-old is well on track to overtake Collins Mbesuma’s record of 25 goals in a single season. The Sundowns man has been in fine form for a few seasons now and a question that has run through everyone’s mind, is why isn’t he in Europe? Some would say that the salary at Sundowns is too good to turn down, others would say that he is flourishing in South Africa, why would he play second fiddle in Europe? Ultimately, is he good enough for Europe? Being 28 years old, many European clubs would commit a risk analysis on the player, but maybe a move to North Africa is the right decision. Or he is where he is meant to be?

The UEFA Champions League has reached the semi-finals with 2 Spanish teams and 2 English teams left. All four of these teams had to fight to get into the semi-finals but none more fairytale-like than Villareal after the Yellow-Submarine beat the Bavarian Giants (Bayern Munich) away, to reach this spot. Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield says “this Villareal story is beautiful.”

On the latest episode of the International News Desk Special, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discusses the levels that Peter Shalulile is reaching. Sean and Kurt chat about the UCL semi-final fixtures and who is next in line for the Manchester United Job!

Ten Hag To The Rescue???

With the 2021/2022 English Premier League season coming to the start of the business end, Manchester United find themselves in a measly 7th position on the league table. Having played 30 games (so far) and not having a 50% winning percentage is the biggest concern for the Red Devils. The 9 draws were wasted points and the losses then came as no surprise. United seems to be incredibly unstable and it seems as though everything started to fall apart when Fergie left-back in 2013. As of right now, Manchester United does not have a concrete coach as Ralf Rangink is merely an interim coach but what happens when his 6-month coaching contract comes to an end? Ralf will then step up to the director of football at the club, but in terms of coaches, there seems to be one man who's on top of United’s list. Erik ten Hag. The Dutchman has had some wonderful success with Ajax Amsterdam (current coaching job).

Reports suggest that the deal to bring the 52-year-old to Old Trafford is ‘almost done' and the release clause in his contract could be a big reason why current PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino isn’t leading the race (amongst other things). Ten Hag is set to bring in some big-name players and with his expertise, hopefully, he can turn things around for the Red Devils.

On the latest episode p\of the International News Desk, former Mamelodi Sundowns, and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discusses the rumours of PSG already offering Paul Pogba a contract. Soccer Laduma International news correspondent Kurt Buckerifeld joins the big man to talk about Bale's contract at Real Madrid and Karim ‘The Dream” Benzema.

Sean: What Concerns Me About Bafana...

With the International break almost over, the world cup qualification is just about finished which sees 5 very strong African teams heading to Qatar. The regular European and South American teams will also feature. During this international football break, Bafana Bafana traveled to France to play the world champions in an international friendly. 65 places separated these two teams on the official FIFA rankings and ‘Le Bleus’ made sure they meant business. Unfortunately, there was a clear difference in skill level between the two teams; Bafana captain Ronwen Williams made many outstanding saves, but 5 goals were still conceded. One thing that stood out was the fact that no matter what the scoreline was, Bafana still tried to stick to their game plan. Although a few positives could be taken from the match, questions about Bafana and concerns still remain.

Soccer Laduma International correspondent Kurt Buckerfield sheds light on statements made by Barcelona President Joan Laporta and who he claims has already signed for the Catalan giants for the 2022/23 season. Kurt provides an in-depth review of the latest 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and who will be heading to Qatar.

On the latest episode of the International News Desk, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town Goalie Sean Roberts chats to Soccer Laduma International correspondent Kurt Buckerfield about the recent fixture which saw Bafana get drummed 5-0 to current world champions France. The gents break down the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and chat about the alleged poisoning of soon-to-be former Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich!

Was Ronaldo Embarrassed About Being Benched?

After a humiliating defeat to bitter rivals Manchester City, Manchester United find themselves in even hotter water than before. A dismal defensive effort saw the Citizens crush the Red Devils 4-1. After reports suggested that Ronaldo would be benched and used as an ‘impact sub’ more information developed stating that the 5 time Ballon d’Or winner was yet again suffering from his hip flexor injury which eventually saw the player not feature on the team sheet at all. When current caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick took over, he proceeded to explain that players should stay at the club when recovering from any injuries and not fly back to their home country and it looks like Cristian Ronaldo didn’t quite get the memo. CR7 flew back to his home country in Portugal to recover, thus not even attending the Manchester Derby. Insider reports suggest that his teammates weren’t even aware of this and have expressed disappointment in the Portuguese star. CR7 recently returned to training at Carrington, with a team of security…

Later in the show, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts and Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield break down the latest UEFA Champions League fixtures and results with the match of the week coming in favour of Real Madrid as Los Blancos powered through to beat the kings of France, PSG.

Booth: Why this Pirates Team Reminds Me Of My Sundowns Team

When it comes to financial strength, no team is as strong as Mamelodi Sundowns, especially after they splashed out over R15M on Teboho Mokoena. Does this pose the question, are Mamelodi Sundowns inflating the market? The irony? Whenever Kaizer Chiefs approach clubs to sign players, those players’ price tag gets put up astronomically, which then disadvantages the player, and also brings a sense of unfairness to Chiefs. All of this relates to the recent transfer window! Speaking on the 100th episode of the Carwash, special guest and former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth compares this current Orlando Pirates team with the Downs team he played for during his second stint at Naturena. The White Knight explains that during his time there, 14 players were signed and this can cause the players to feel a major sense of 'uncomfortability.'

On the 100th episode of the Carwash, former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns goalie Sean Roberts is joined by former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth to discuss the recent transfer window which saw some surprising decisions being made. The former teammates also discuss the issues between Baxter and Chiefs, which came to light during the same transfer window. Later in the show, Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield joins the show to chat about the recent AFCON Final which saw Sadio Mane’s Senegal emerge victorious!

Show Me The Money: The Transfer Wrap-Up!

With the winter transfer window now closed, some of the transfers and signings that took place throughout the 31 day-period will leave some wide eyes and dropped jaws. Teams from the BPL stole the show with Tottenham Hotspur signing Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus; Liverpool signed a bright talent from Porto in Luis Diaz. However, newly taken-over billionaires Newcastle, in no surprise, stole the show, with a whopping 5 players, with Bruno Guimaraes being the most notable. The Brazilian international is good enough to play for any team in the top 5 leagues and comfortably make the starting lineup. This singing goes to show how serious Newcastle are and how they mean business.

On the latest episode of the International News Desk, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts welcomes Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield to discuss the biggest and most exciting transfer of the winter transfer window. Mason Greenwood has been the biggest topic of discussion over the past week, and an in-depth analysis into the 20-year-old situation takes place

Is Al Ahly Mistreating Pitso?

Pitso Mosimane’s future at Al Ahly has taken an unexpected twist after the latest comments by the club’s director of football. For the last few months, ‘Jingles’ has been negotiating a new contract with the Egyptian giants, which would see a healthy rise in pay for the South African. However, the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach’s comments on this matter have angered Al Ahly. “Regarding my contract with Al Ahly, I am not sure where we are at, we negotiated before the CAF Champions League finale against Kaizer Chiefs, before the Super Cup against Raja Casablanca, and we are negotiating now ahead of the FIFA Club World Cup,” Pitso told the Egyptian media. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s “The Carwash,” former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko ‘The General’ Modise says that A Big Club Like Al Ahly, Deserves A Great Coach Like Pitso.

On the latest episode of the Carwash, featuring former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko ‘The General’ Modise, conversations around two of the PSL’s most impressive attackers, Samir Nurkovic and Gaston Sirino are on the table; debates about their respective futures and current teams make the rounds. The drama surrounding Pitso Mosimane and Al Ahly come into the show and later, Soccer Laduma International Correspondent Kurt Buckerfield takes the gents on a trip through Italy, where Mario Balotelli has been recalled to the Azzurri for the first time since 2018.

Teko: “Baxter Must Look At What He Has...”

With the DStv Premiership transfer window wide open, all eyes are focused on Kaizer Chiefs and what their next move is. Amakhosi have been publicly vocal about the dire need to sign an out and out striker, with Victor Letsoalo high up on the Glamour Boys’ list. However, looking at the problems Chiefs are facing, forming Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana legend Teko Modise disagrees with Chiefs’ need for a striker. Speaking on the SL Podcast, The General states; “ [Stuart] Baxter must look at what he has already, he has really talented strikers, he must utilise them properly.” Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts agrees with Teko, with both suggesting that Chiefs need a defender and not a striker. However, with Samir Nurkovic returning from a lengthy injury, hopefully, the Serbian striker can add some venom into the Sowetan Giants’ attack!
