Chelsea continue Brazilian revolution | Premier League | Transfers

LONDON (Reuters) – Chelsea have agreed terms with Brazil’s Fluminense for the transfer of 18-year-old defender Wallace, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Wallace, a Brazil under-20 international, was part of the under-17 team that won the South American championship last year and were fourth at the World Cup at the same level.

He made his senior debut at 17 and helped Fluminense win the Brazilian league championship, the Rio State League and the Guanabara Cup.

He will officially join Chelsea in the January transfer window but will remain with Fluminense until the end of the season.

Brazil – Denmark, FIFA U-17 World Cup Mexico 2011: Though their opener had some luck about it, Brazil’s second and third, scored by Ademilson and Wallace, were delightful.

Chelsea’s Latest Brazilian Star is Called ‘Bernard’ | Wonderkids | Premier League

Reports suggest that Chelsea are looking to add Brazilian star Bernard to their ranks and rate the player highly. Bernard who plays his football in Brazil for Atletico Mineiro is considered to be similar to Chelsea’s latest star Oscar.

As a 19-year-old Bernard was linked to a handful of clubs in Russia and Qatar and is currently thought to be on Liverpool’s radar. In a recent interview with Globo Esporte he revealed that several European clubs—the names of which he would not reveal—had made enquiries as to his signature and admitted that he might be tempted to make a move in the January transfer window.

“If there is any interest at the end of the [Brazilian] season and it is in the interests of both parties, let’s talk,” he said.


Carlos Tevez Payslip Turns Up On Twitter | Premier League | Social Media

One such man is Carlos Tevez, who is the apparent owner of a payslip that leaked on Twitter on Sunday. Assuming the document is genuine, it tells us that the Argentinian earned a gross wage of £720,287 in March 2010, with an additional bonus of £20,000 for accommodation — it really is impossible to find anything in Manchester for any less — and a £7,000 “M.P. Bonus” (presumably, Tevez is given a monthly reward if he is able to resist storming off to play golf for indefinite periods of time).

It also reveals that the City striker’s net £408,397.27 earnings were hampered by a whopping £24 fine from the FA, which was probably handed down for a yellow card. In the tax year 2009/10, the payslip tells us that Tevez was paid just under £8m, but handed over nearly £3.3m in tax and national insurance.


Argentinian defender banned for 6 years for kicking an Official in the head | Football

The incident happened in the 17th minute of Huracan’s Torneo 6 Ligas cup fixture with Club Jorge Newbery earlier this month.

Schiavi, whose older brother Rolando plays for Boca Juniors and the Argentina national team, became incensed when he was sent off for what looked a fair challenge.

But instead of taking his punishment like a man, Schiavi and his colleagues, who were losing 2-0 and facing an early exit from the tournament, began a confrontation with referee Dario Fuene that quickly turned ugly.

Indeed, several Huracan players escalated their verbal berating of the man in black into a full on shove contest, before one wrestled Fuenes to the ground.

As the referee tried to get up, Schiavi strode over and promptly kicked Fuenes in the head, in what has been described as the worst attack on a match official ever.

Argentina referee gets beaten to the floor | Football | South America

The brother of Boca Juniors star Rolando Schiavi, Leandro Schiavi, has upstaged his sibling for all the wrong reasons after he was filmed brutally assaulting a referee in an amateur match in Argentina.

The incident occurred as Hurricane Arribenos beat Jorge Newbery 2-0 in the past few days.

The action started when referee Darius Funes went over to check up on a Jorge Newbery player who was lying flat on the ground. Seconds later Leandro Schiavi, wearing Hurricane Arribenos’ green number 2 jersey, appeared on the scene, and he immediately tried to drag his fallen opponent to his feet in a gesture which suggested he though the Newbery man was faking.

Within a blink of an eye a group of players from both sides piled into the mix and the pushing and shoving began. Schiavi was sent off in the aftermath, but that only served to kick matters off in a far more dramatic fashion.
