Former Manchester City and Inter manager Roberto Mancini has been linked with England job after the FA invited him to Wembley to watch the World Cup qualifier against Malta tonight.

The Italian manager was sacked by Inter two months ago, on August 8, after misunderstanding with the directors and the new owners, the Chinese industry giant Suning, and a poor pre-season and was then replaced by ex Ajax coach Frank de Boer, so now he’s looking for a new job and he always stated that he would be honoured to be England coach, since he loves English football philosophy.

After having a poor start of the season, Chelsea defender Gary Cahill admits he will try to corrects his errors to prove himself to the Blues and their new manager, Antonio Conte:

“The only people I have to prove myself to is the manager of the football club that I’m playing at and my teammates that I’m playing with,” the centre-back told the BBC.

“I made a few big errors and we all know that. I’m not stupid. I basically made my own mistakes out of nothing, so as ridiculously as bad as they were, they are also easy to correct.”

Thiago Silva agent Paulo Tonietto admitted his client and him are not in talks with PSG for a contract extension and, even if there is no negotiation yet, the Brazilian defender’s next destination can be a big London club:

Chelsea are a big club. And the English league is the best in the world,” Tonietto told Sport Witness.

 “We’re not negotiating a new contract, let’s see what happens before December.

“Thiago’s deal ends on June 30th 2017 if PSG don’t qualify for the Champions League. Everything is possible in football,” he concluded.

Chelsea vice-captain Branislav Ivanovic claimed that he will be “happy” to sit on the bench, as it happened in the last Premier League clash against Hull City, if the manager’s decision will help the team:

“I was maximum ready and healthy for the match with Hull, but I never got the chance,” the Serbian defender said.

“I’ll always put myself below the interests of the team, be that the national side or club.

“It’s been a while since I was a back-up, but I do not mind. I’ll sit on the bench whenever the coach decides, and not for the first time in these eight years at Chelsea.

“It is normal to be on the bench, especially in clubs that over and over again are going a step further.”

Chelsea loanee Andreas Christensen claims he prefers Bundesliga’s football than Premier League one.

“I have only played one match in the Premier League so far, but I obviously trained with my Chelsea team-mates on a daily basis. It is still a different comparison to make, though. Perhaps the Premier League is a bit more organised defensively,”  the Danish defender, on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach for the second year, explains.

“It is very difficult to create chances in the Premier League. The Bundesliga is the more entertaining league. Almost every game is [played] at a breathtaking pace, up and down, back and forth, attack and counter-attack.”
