Conti Backs Alisson As World's Best

Former AS Roma and Italy keeper Paolo Conti has said current Roma number one, Alisson Becker, is the best keeper in the world. Conti said: "Alisson is certainly the best goalkeeper in the world right now. It's almost impossible to set a market value for him, seeing the crazy figures that are flying around at the moment. I said Alisson was excellent a long while back and now he is simply priceless. He has great intelligence and anticipates the moves of the opposition team. He doesn't need to make spectacular saves, because his positioning is so good."

 

Mulumbu Suing Former Advisors

Kilmarnock's former West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu has released a statement claiming Paris-based firm Sport Management Conseil abused his trust and that he is taking legal action against them. Mulumbu's statement read: "I worked with the SMC agency between 2009 and 2017, and wanted to put my trust in people who were supposedly competent. But it turned out to be a bad decision. The central characters who represented me simply deceived me - and robbed me of millions of euros. So I am taking legal action against this company. After robbing me, these people withheld my bonus payment from Norwich because I didn't want to work with them anymore."

 

Lazio Scammed By Email
