Frank Lampard spoke about the importance of the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal, saying that winning the trophy remains forever.

The "blue" coach knows the importance of winning the FA Cup, as he has won the trophy four times in the past as a footballer: "It will be a big boost for the team. Of course, such matches are important experiences for young footballers ".
Lampard then revealed that Encolo Cade and Willian are ready for battle, but Loftus-Chick will miss the final due to injury. In fact, the English coach has to make a difficult decision for the position of goalkeeper that is played between Capagero and Kepa:
"It's hard. We have competition in the team, but it becomes even harder for such matches that everyone wants to play. We must all be together as a team. "Those who come off the bench were decisive in the season."
Treble on penalties for Paris
Paris won the League Cup by beating Lyon 6-5 on penalties.

The champions prevailed 6-5 on Lyon penalties in the grand final. The 0-0 sealed the efforts of both teams in regular time and in overtime, but in Russian roulette Paris was cooler. Her players were perfectly targeted, in contrast to Traore who saw Kaylor Navas block the sixth penalty of the "Lions" giving the opportunity to Sarabia to give the title to the team of Thomas Tuchel.
Paris is now turning to the Champions League, where it is already in the quarterfinals, while Lyon has a rematch with Juventus for the "16", but already knows that the new season will be outside Europe. If he won the Cup he would play in the Europa League, but now as seventh he is out and the sixth Reims wins the ticket.
Van Dyke on Keita: "It's world-class, but unlucky"
Milan have submitted a proposal to Liverpool for the acquisition, in the form of a loan, of Nabi Keita, but the English champions want to keep him at "Anfield".

In fact, his teammate in Liverpool, Virgil Van Dyke, spoke about the best words for his value and stressed that he hopes that the new season will not be unlucky again:
"Nabi is world-class, but he was unlucky with the injuries. I hope the new season will have such problems and will help us to claim new titles ".
New contract until 2024 for Fati in Barcelona
Barcelona is ready to "tie" Ansou Fati until 2024.
Barcelona signed a new contract last December with 17-year-old Ansou Fati until 2022, with the option of another two years, while increasing the release clause to 170 million euros.
Now, just a few days later, he has proposed to Fati to sign the extension of his contract for two additional years, activating the option, until the summer of 2024, increasing the clause to 400 million euros!

Jimenez is going to Juventus
Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is expected to end up at Juventus, despite recent rumors that wanted him to go to Manchester United.
According to "As", the Spanish striker, who has scored 27 goals with the Wolves jersey this year, is expected to continue his career at Juventus and Serie A.
Until now, most expected him to end up at Manchester United, who have also moved to acquire him, but it seems that Jimenez will move to Italy on behalf of the "Big Lady".
Arsenal is looking for the "bang" with Coutinho
Arsenal wants to acquire Philippe Coutinho, with Matteo Gentuzi being included in the Gunners' offer to Barcelona.
Arsenal is trying to do a "big trick" with the acquisition of Filipe Coutinho. The Brazilian midfielder played on loan at Bayern Munich but the Bavarians will not proceed with his acquisition, with the footballer returning to Barcelona.
According to the Independent, the "blaugrana" view positively a possible exchange of Coutinho with Mateo Gentuzi of Arsenal. The "gunners" intend to put on the negotiating table 10 million euros plus Gentuzi to entice "Barca".
Michel Arteta wants to strengthen Arsenal in midfield and considers Coutinho's case ideal. In fact, if Danny Thebagios does not stay permanently in London and returns to the Real Madrid he belongs to, the acquisition of Coutinho will be a solution to the gap that will be created.
If Arsenal manages to acquire Coutinho with a cash of only 10 million euros, it will be an impressive move, considering that 145 million euros were spent for the Brazilian two years ago by Barcelona.

Another life lesson from Klopp: "I had dark days in my life, I'm not perfect" (vid)
Speaking of mental health, Jürgen Klopp reveals his own moments of weakness and emphasizes that he is not perfect.
The Liverpool coach, along with Andy Robertson, took part in the Heads Up mental health campaign and tried to show by talking about themselves that everyone has problems and that anyone who feels weak should seek help.
What did Klopp say?
"Only when you think you are perfect is it difficult to accept that we are not perfect. This will make life easier by thinking that we humans are not perfect. I have accepted it for a long time ...
I had dark days in my life, especially on the verge of football for my coaching career, when I was not given the opportunity to be on a bench. I looked in my bank account and saw that the money would be enough for me for a week, not for a lifetime ...
I did not know what I would do in my life if I could not achieve something in football. I am a Christian, I believe in God, it is not so important that my life is always perfect because I know how to deal with situations and I care about the world around me. If those around me are good, so am I.
As long as problems remain in our minds, things become difficult. When you keep them to yourself, there is no room for solutions. When you talk, you make room for other, new things in your mind. People need to feel smart when they ask for help in this area. "Needing help is smart, not weakness."

"I am very happy to remember him as someone who spoke to me as if he were my best friend."
