Federico Pastorello, agent of Juventus soccer player Arthur and Federico Bernardeschi, talked about the future of his players. The agent of the two Juventus soccer players said in an interview with Tuttosport: "Arthur was chosen for Sarri and let's say that he has characteristics, including physical ones, that do not go along well with Allegri's football.
In Turin they are happy with Arthur and how he restarted after the surgery, but keeping a player of this level on the bench is a shame. as long as you play. For January we are not ruling out anything: Spain, but also Italy or England."
About Bernardeschi, he added: "There has always been a special chemistry with Federico, sooner or later it had to happen. In addition to being a European champion, he is a boy with great depth of soul and attributes: just think of the penalties kicked at Euro 2020.
He is a top professional: he takes care of nutrition and sleep in a maniacal way like Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom he had a good relationship. For the future we have a clear plan of action. We also evaluate the stay at Juventus, let's not forget that Federico strongly wanted the Bianconeri when he was at Fiorentina and he put his face in the first person.
For now there have been no contacts with Juve, we'll see."
Rafael Nadal: "My favorite soccer player is Ronaldo Nazario da Lima"
Rafael Nadal played just seven official tournaments in 2021, thanks to some physical problems that limited his performance.
A back problem prevented him from being 100% at the Australian Open, where he surrendered to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals. The former world number 1 returned just in time for the clay season, where he posted a couple of titles (respectively in Barcelona and Rome), but did not express the dominance we were used to.
His big goal was obviously Roland Garros, where the Iberian hoped to list his 21st Major. Heavily handicapped by a foot injury, the 35-year-old from Manacor bowed to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. Due to the incessant pain, the Spaniard was forced to miss Wimbledon, the Tokyo Olympics and the US Open.
Due to his precarious conditions, he could not help but announce the early closure of his season. The 20-time Grand Slam champion will be back in action in a few days at the prestigious Abu Dhabi exhibition. Rafa has won the last edition of the tournament (staged in 2019) and will face the winner of the match between Andy Murray and Dominic Thiem.
In a recent interview with VICE magazine, Nadal talked about some little-known aspects of his life. During the conversation, Rafael Nadal was asked to reveal his favorite soccer player. The Majorcan is a huge football fan, as well as being a Real Madrid fan.
He said: "I grew up watching Ronaldo Nazario da Lima play. I have always admired his deeds and I went to see him live many times." Despite his enormous popularity, the 13-time Roland Garros champion has always led a simple life.
He added: "I have lived in the same city since I was little and have kept the same friends I had as a child. I love spending time with my friends and with my family members." Rafa will compete in the Melbourne ATP 250 ahead of the 2022 Australian Open.
