Marcelo & Carli Lloyd Join Messi & Kroos as Pepsi Continue Assembling All-Star Squad

?Pepsi® continues to kick off 2018 by revealing three-time Champions League winner Marcelo and Women’s Best Player of the Year Carli Lloyd in its new world-class line up of global footballers, part of the ongoing #LoveItLiveIt campaign.

Pepsi began the year by naming Barcelona living legend Lionel Messi and Real Madrid midfield maestro Toni Kroos in an all-star squad of players.

Marcelo, who first joined Real Madrid in 2007 as a teenager, has shared a video via his official Facebook page paying tribute to his grandfather as a constant source of support and inspiration on his journey into professional football.

“Football and family are two halves of my soul,” Marcelo said.

“My grandfather Pedro: my hero. Through him I fell in love with the game. Through his sacrifice, I learnt patience, to hold onto my dreams and never give up. Because, one day, young Marcelo, you’ll make it. The dream came true.”

For Lloyd, who temporarily moved to Europe in 2017 to fulfil a dream of playing in the Women’s Champions League, a defining moment in her glittering career came when she was dropped from the US Under-21 team. Instead of killing her desire to reach the top, it spurred her on.

Sven Ulreich Commits His Future at Bundesliga Leaders Bayern Munich Until 2021

?Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich has signed a new contract with the club, extending his stay at the Allianz Arena until 2021. 

The 29-year-old’s previous agreement was set to expire at the end of this season, thus allowing him to depart Bavaria on a free transfer following the conclusion of this campaign if no new deal was reached. 

However, the Bundesliga leaders have announced that the German will remain at the side he joined from Stuttgart in 2015 for a further three years. 

“I am very happy that Bayern will continue to rely on me in the future and I can help this big club in the next few years to reach its goals”, Ulreich told Bayern Munich’s? official website after putting pen to paper

“In addition, my family and I feel very well in Munich.”

The Schorndorf-born custodian has been heavily relied upon this season due to the absence of regular number one Manuel Neuer, who has been sidelined with a second metatarsal fracture in as many seasons since mid-September last year. 

However, despite their dependency on the reserve 29-year-old, the Reds have continued to assert their dominance in German football, currently leading the way in the country’s top-flight by 18 points over second place RB Leipzig, comfortably securing passage into the DFB Pokal semi-finals and preparing to face Besiktas in the last-16 of the Champions League later this month.

“The past three years have shown that we can always rely on Sven Ulreich, both as a goalkeeper and as a human being”, club sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added

“Especially in this season, he has a significant role in that we are the Bundesliga league leaders and continue to have good chances also in the Champions League and the DFB Cup.”

Stand-In Bayern Munich Coach Happy With Vital Win Against ‘Alert’ Schalke 04

Bayern Munich’s makeshift manager Peter Hermann was happy to see his side secure all three points at the Allianz Arena against a Schalke 04 side who have become revolutionised under Domenico Tedesco.

Jupp Heynckes was forced to stay at home on Saturday through illness as Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller found the back of the net to extend Bayern’s lead at the top of the Bundesliga table to 18 points.

“I think Jupp Heynckes was most engrossed in front of the TV,” Hermann told the club website. “He texted me, I’ll have to call him. ‘Congratulations on the victory’, he said. 

“It was a very tough match for us. Schalke pressed very well, they were always alert. Congratulations to the team, what they’ve done over the last few months is very good.”

Müller also spoke to the media after the game, confirming that his decisive goal may have had a slice of luck after appearing to catch Ralf Fährmann out with a genius finish.

“Our coach will say I cheekily put it in. I tried to square it. My hip was in a rather unhealthy position, and it just went into the corner,” Müller added.

“A keeper often speculates in situations like this, but I didn’t have the time to see it and then score. I was a bit lucky indeed.”

Bayern Considering Move for Barcelona’s Jasper Cillessen Amid Concerns Over Manuel Neuer’s Fitness

German giants Bayern Munich are believed to be considering a move for Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

That is according to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo, who claim that the Bavarian side have developed an interest in the Dutch stopper but will make a decision as it relates to an approach based on how Manuel Neuer recovers from his injury.

Neuer was recently granted a short break in a warmer climate to help with his rehabilitation after struggles with his injured foot. However, there is a fair amount of worry surrounding the player.

“Captain Neuer will instead take a short holiday after consulting the German record champions’ medical unit,” Bayern said in a statement on Friday.

“The 31-year-old will spend his time in warmer climes until 18 February. Neuer has been assigned individual training plans to continue his rehab on a daily basis.”

The club are believed to have switched focus from Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to Cillessen, whom they scouted in a recent Copa del Rey fixture.

Ter Stegen is seen as very happy with his status at Barca, as well as his family life in Spain, and isn’t considered to be a conceivable acquisition. Cillessen, however, could possibly leave the Camp Nou for pastures new.

Neuer, meanwhile, is hoping to return to action before the end of the season.

“There is no specific date,” he said last month. “We have to play it safe now and wait and see how my body handles the next few steps.

“But I am very optimistic and I know I will play in the second half of the season. I have to say I’m doing very well. I think my foot is doing very well too.”
