David Alaba rejects offer from Manchester City (Fussball Transfers)

The future is still unsettled for both David Alaba and Manuel Neuer. According to Fussball Transfers, Manchester City is out of the race for the Austrian superstar after having their bid rejected by the recently converted center-back.

Head coach Hansi Flick wants to keep his rejuvenated star, although, at the moment, nothing is certain. Bayern will have to sell if Alaba doesn’t extend his contract before the summer as they don’t want to risk Alaba going on a free transfer.

Although he won’t join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Alaba is still flirting with Real Madrid and Barcelona. Whether the two Spanish clubs can afford him, especially with the recent corona pandemic which affected Spain severely in mind, is another question.

Everton’s young striker Moise Kean in trouble hosting a house party (Daily Star)

Moise Kean is in trouble after filming himself at his own party at his apartment. Being the latest football player to break restrictions, Kean filmed himself with several women at a raunchy lockdown party.

In a club statement, Everton stated they were:

Appalled to learn of an incident in which a first-team player ignored government guidance and club policy in relation to the coronavirus crisis…Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all the government guidelines - including rules and advice for inside and outside of the home - through a series of official communications to all staff members, including players.

More than 20,000 people have died due to the coronavirus in UK hospitals, according to the Department of Health. Everton added to their statement:

The amazing people in the NHS deserve the utmost respect for their hard work and sacrifice. The best way to show them respect is by doing everything we can to protect them.

Kean, who has so far seen as an expensive flop ever since his move from Juventus for €27.50 million, will most likely get a find from the Merseyside club.

Need a workout to do at home? Zé Roberto (45 years old) has got you covered!

Zé Roberto is currently the technical advisor to Palmeiras. He played a total of 169 Bundesliga games with Bayern Munich and more than 300 Bundesliga games overall. A true legend who is still looking as fit as ever. Good to know Bayern has someone to call whenever another injury crisis develops in 20 years.

Great initiative from Die Fohlen fans!

We at Bavarian Football Works remember Tito Vilanova

Fantastic initiative from Serie B club Pescara Calcio

The shirt looks amazing.

Marcus rates it 5/5 and is considering buying one.

The Portuguese futsal international is widely regarded as being one of the best to ever play the game, and it is easy to see why.

This made me laugh more than it should:

Marcus Quarantine Footy Video Recommendation — COPA90s ‘the Search For Indonesia’s First Wonderkid’

Considering we are all stuck in the same boat, I thought I’d share recommendations on footy videos I’ve been watching while stuck in quarantine. The first edition is an on-going series from COPA90. It is about the journey of the best Indonesian U-17 players, who come to England to try and improve their game and career. Under the stewardship of former English internationals Des Walker and Dennis Wise, it is a massively entertaining series.

Indonesia is a relatively unknown but passionate footballing nation.
