Good morning my friends. How are you? I am just happy because AS Roma defeated Real Madrid yesterday in the International Champions Cup, wohoooooOO!!! I am also super mega happy because the father of Juventus forward Carlos Tevez was freed after being kidnapped for 8 hours in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Headlines reporting the ransom was for 36 thousands Euros. Tevez will not play in the friendly game today against Cesena.
And here we go again with the on going Tutto Sport saga on Javier Hernandez “Chicharito.” It is curious that in the past two days only Tutto Sport mention the interest of Inter to sign Chicharito, but neither the front pages from La Gazzetta dello Sport not Corriere dello Sport had mentioned it. The point is that according to Tutto Sport, Inter need to sell midfielder Fredy Guarrin to buy Hernandez. However, headlines also indicating that striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is closer to sign for Inter.

< ![CDATA[MILAN – The conclusion of Arrigo Sacchi’s adventure as co-ordinator of the Italy National Youth Sector has not gone unnoticed by his counterpart at Milan, Filippo Galli, who on his facebook profile commented, "I thank Mr Sacchi for his valuable contribution in recent years to the development of youth football in Italy, for his cooperation and openness. I find it hard to think about Arrigo away from football but I think it is right to respect his choice. A strong and affectionate hug to a great maestro."]]>
< ![CDATA[MILAN - Former Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi’s four mandate at the helm of Italy’s Youth Sector came to a close today: "I have to thank my assistant Maurizio Viscidi and the Federation,” said Sacchi, “who have decided to invest in youth in a country that does not believe it. ""I am disappointed to leave this position, which I care a lot about,” he confessed, “but I have a terrible opponent who I have managed to keep at bay for 22-23 years but now in the end is winning: stress. I advised the FIGC a year ago I would have left at the end of the four years. I was a good father as I neglected my daughter, and I do not want to do the same with my granddaughter, who was born two and half years ago. I am no longer a young man, my recovery time is longer. "Among the various positive results obtained from the National youth team in the last four years, the second-place finish at the European Under-21 Championship behind Spain still stands out. "We eliminated a team like the Netherlands,” said Sacchi, “and five of the Dutch players turned out in the semi-final of the World Cup in Brazil. In these four years we have worked very hard, we tried to give the kids their own space, and an international outlook. Youngtsers like De Sciglio, Florenzi, Insigne and Immobile have shown their worth in Serie A, while others like Verratti, Caldirola, Donati, Fausto Rossi, passed from Serie B to some of the most important foreign clubs."]]>

PITTSBURGH – Work continues at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh for Milan. The Rossoneri were put through their paces this morning in the first of two training sessions planned for the today.
The session saw the Rossoneri initially warming up with floor exercises, strengthening exercises and running, before starting ball work.
The training was primarily tactical: after the warm-up, the squad was divided into two groups, based on their positions. In one half of the pitch, the forwards and midfielders focused on attacking schemes. In the other half, the defenders worked on playing the ball out of defence.
Cristian Zapata participated in the warm-up and in the first drills before following a personalised session.
In the afternoon the training session at Heinz Field is open to the public.
