Kvyat Wants Red Bull  Decision on Future

first_imgSpeaking at Silverstone over the weekend, Kvyat thanked Horner for his support but said he would like formal confirmation in the near future.“I think our common trust is going back to a good level so I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t want to collaborate,” Kvyat said.“But I need an answer also, if those are his plans I need an answer as soon as possible because obviously it is getting to the part of the season that you want to know your future.“It would be great to know as soon as possible but I don’t see any reason why we wouldn’t want to collaborate together.

Red Bull have been taking care of me for the last seven, eight years. Whatever Dr Marko will decide, I will take the answer.“I don’t see any reason why not to [stay with the Red Bull family]. You have to be patient.

Juve prepares a blank check for Pep

first_imgAnd just as they were raised in 2018, the Italian club wants to bring one of the best coaches in the world to become almighty again in Italy and a firm candidate in Europe. The Manchester City coach said in his day that he was not going anywhere, although Juve plans to try to convince him at the heel of a book. And it is that knowing that his salary is around 15 million pounds, 17.75 million euros, they would offer a blank check for the Spanish to decide how much is enough to change airs. His team, although second in the Premier League, is one of the best game in the world and that is what they want for them in the Italian club.It does not seem simple that Guardiola can make this decision, and less in the short term, although what seems clear is that the Sarri effect begins to fade in Turin. All this a few days after Manchester City played it against the Real Madrid in the second round of the Champions League, and a few days after Juventus does the same in front of Lyon Olympique. Premier League* Data updated as of February 11, 2020 Daily Mail ensures that Juventus is willing to throw the house out of the window to seize the services of Pep Guardiola. The Vecchia Signora does not go through its best moment, now that they have lost the leadership in favor of Inter de Milan, with which they still tie points. The environment is not the best and proof of this is the anger of Cristiano Ronaldo, which has been marking in ten consecutive days and still eleven points have been left in them.
