Maurizio Sarri has been able to stem the tide at Stamford Bridge with the Italian on the brink some few months ago. Chelsea has been able to enjoy some stability since his switch to a more defensive 4-2-3-1 formation in recent matches.
Robert Huth, the former defender of Leicester City and Chelsea says that he has now retired from the game of football and will not be playing anymore.
Robert Huth was not impressed at all with the way the South Korean player Son Heung-Min acted to convince the referee that there was a foul made on him and ended up being awarded a penalty for that. The incident took place in the recent game between Tottenham and Arsenal when Son fell in the penalty area and seemed to be in quite a bit of pain which prompted the referee to make a decision in his favor.
According to Huth, it was pretty deliberate on Son’s part to exaggerate the situation like that and pretend as if it was paining, while that wasn’t the case. That penalty got converted as Harry Kane found the back of the net to give the Spurs a lead of 2-1. It seemed to be a very crucial moment in the game at that stage, but it didn’t prove to be the game defining moment at the end as the Gunners were able to equalize early in the second half and then went on to score two more goals to not only emerge victorious in the game, but also leave Tottenham behind in the Premiership standings.
Terry, presently the free agent has taken the step to join Spartak Moscow, Russian outfit. Now, the Aston Villa could probably move for Robert Huth, who is also the free agent after missing out on John Terry, this report has revealed. On returning to the Villa Park, Terry looks odd following his exit in the summer following play-off heartache of Wembley against Fulham.
At the stoke city, Robert Huth will keep on receiving a warm welcome – however, Gary Rowett maintains there are no commitments from both the parties still about the permanent reunion. It is expected that Huth will featured in a friendly opposite Walsall tomorrow afternoon and could travel with the team to Germany, for a training camp on Monday.
It appears that Robert Huth will be leaving Leicester City at the end of the season when his contract is due to expire. The defender has failed to play for Leicester City for nine months now and has lost his place in the team due to repeated injury.
Leicester City central defender Robert Huth is set to return to action for the former Premier League champs, as per reports. He would begin his comeback with a feature in the Under 23 setup on Wednesday before gradual introduction into the first team.
It is good news for the Foxes as Wes Morgan hamstring issues remain in a limbo. The club is awaiting the scan results of the defender. Morgan picked up the injury in the game against Huddersfield Town at the King Power Stadium, increasing the list of unfit players in the squad.
Leicester City defender Robert Huth believes that his team can enjoy a good season this term.
He said that there is a good atmosphere around the club and that the players are determined to win games this season.
He admitted that there are so many expectations around the club ever since they won the league and that this pressure can be suffocating at times. He said that it would be impossible for them to win the title again but they want to finish as high as they can.
The defender is currently sidelined for treatment after a surgery on an ankle. He said that it is a difficult thing to watch your teammates playing and cannot take part in the game.
Robert Huth said that he is confident he will be back to his best and be helpful to the team. He said that this is an important season for him and at his age, he wants to make sure that he has plenty of playing time.
On February 23 of 2017, Claudio Ranieri was sacked from his managerial position in Leicester City as the club was at that point in time located just slightly above the relegation zone.
It was pretty clear that Leicester City was struggling trying to defend the English Premier League title that they had won in the previous season.
Going from being the champions to dropping into the bottom relegation zones, from one season to the other one is a huge difference and that´s what Leicester City has recently been experiencing.
Craig Shakeaspeare would later be appointed as the new manager of Leicester City and 53 year old English manager was able to push the club to the 12th spot.
The 2017-18 season of the English Premier League is scheduled to start on August 11 and Shakeaspeare is doing a notable job in the 2017 summer transfer window as he has added to his team, the likes of: Harry Maguire, Eldin Jakupovic and Vicente Iborra.
The Premier League is looking at keeping a lid on simulation more from next season.
It hopes to achieve this by introducing two match ban rules. From the forthcoming season, the Premier League would look at punishing simulation retrospectively. Also, the body introduced an offence tagged ‘successful deception of a match official.’
The FA in a statement shed more light on the offence:
“Where there is clear and overwhelming evidence to suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation, and as a direct result, the offending player’s team has been awarded a penalty and/or an opposing player has been dismissed, the FA will be able to act retrospectively under its Fast Track system.”
The FA also added that a three man panel would be the one handling the independent reviews. The panel would consists of a former manager, an ex player and a former match official, to bring the balance from all angles. The panel would look at the video evidence independently and advise the FA if it was an offence. When the three report a guilty verdict, charges would then be enforced.
Summarily, from next term when players feign injury or simulate what is not, they would be liable to a two match ban. An example was when Swansea City visited Manchester United recently. Forward Marcus Rashford appears to have gone down easily when he had contact with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
Swansea manager Paul Clement claimed the replays showed that Rashford deceived the referee. In such situation if the panel finds him guilty, Rashford would miss the next two matches.
Robert Huth applauded the new laws when he heard of them. He went online to support the move. He even hinted on a joking note that the FA should consider players that pretend to be injured or that cry when they lose.
