Recently in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, Chelsea met Paris Saint-Germain, and the match went for a draw. But the incident that took place after the match was very shameful on the behalf of the club. A few blues fans prior to the match were caught on camera harassing a PSG fan on racial grounds. The incident took place in the Paris metro. The club has also acted fast and has taken the decision of barring three fans from entering the Stamford Bridge when PSG and Chelsea meet again for the 2nd leg of UEFA Champions League. The club has also stated that if stronger evidences are produced then the ban will be a lifelong one for those three personals. The club authorities have also thanked other fans for providing them with information about the matter and helping them to find the culprits.

The Spanish legend and all time Real Madrid’s highest goal scorer Raul made his debut for New York Cosmos in a friendly match which was played against South China. Last year October Raul announced that he will be coming out of his retirement and will be again playing for MLS. He was there on the field for all 90 minutes and also managed to net a goal in the penalty kicks after the match ended for a 2-2 draw. New York Cosmos won the match with a 4-2 win in the penalty shootouts.

The former Barca and Real star Luis Figo launched his presidential manifesto on Thursday at the Wembley Stadium. The most interesting proposal given in his manifesto was to increase the number of teams playing in the final World Cup event. According to his plan, 48 teams will be participating in the final gala event and the tournament will be held in two continents from where it can be relocated to the host country for the latter stages. As per Figo, in one way this will allow more teams to take part in the biggest football competition of the globe making the competition more fierce and interesting, and will also give a significant leap in the revenues generated by FIFA throughout the competition.
