Most-watched football games in the United States: April 18-24, 2022

It was an interesting week in terms of ratings for football games in the United States, with all top spots in that ranking being occupied by Premier League matches. 

Surprisingly, the match with the highest number of average viewers included Brentford and Tottenham, who played out a goalless draw last Saturday. The game with the second highest tally featured Liverpool and Everton, a game that ended with a two-nil win for the Reds. Last, but not least, supporters poured to watch Arsenal hosting Manchester United in an early kickoff game, with nearly 500,000 fans watching the Gunners claim a 3-1 victory over Ralf Rangnick's men.

One of the matches that stood out in this list was the NWSL game between the North Carolina Courage and the Washington Spirit. The NWSL match ended in an exciting two-all draw, but the real deal came for the Spirit, who qualified to the final stages of the competition at the expense of the Portland Thorns, the 2021 champions.

Biggest stories of the week

New Man United manager Ten Hag keen on bringing in Ajax striker

Now that Erik ten Hag has been confirmed as Manchester United's new manager, speculations have started as to who will be in and who will be out once the Dutch tactician takes over this summer.

One player that has been linked with a move to Old Trafford is none other than Sebastien Haller. The 27-year-old certainly has been a standout player this season for Ajax both in the Eredivisie and in the Champions League. In the latter competition, Haller, who was born in France, but plays his international football for the Ivory Coast, set a new record by becoming the first player to score in seven consecutive matches in the Champions League. 

And that's not all. On his debut, Haller scored four of Ajax's five goals as the Dutch powerhouse cruised to a 5-1 win over Sporting CP, making him the first player to score four on his debut since Marco van Basten did so for AC Milan back in 1992.

Although Ajax were unfortunately eliminated from the Champions League in the round of 16 after narrowly losing 3-2 to Benfica, Haller's goal-scoring exploits have garnered quite a bit of attention from clubs around Europe, and now there are reports that his manager could decide to bring him to Old Trafford once he moves over to England at the end of the season.

Haller will also be determined to prove himself after a very disappointing spell at West Ham, which saw him score just 14 times in 54 apps across all comps. 

Considering that the Red Devils have been really struggling lately, Haller, who is priced at approximately $44 million (£35 million), could be an affordable option to boost their attack ahead of next season; however, Manchester United have also been linked with Benfica's Darwin Nunez, so it will be very interesting to see if either of these players end up featuring for the English giants next season. 

Benzema reveals why he took a Panenka penalty against Ederson in Man City vs Real Madrid thriller

Karim Benzema continued his spectacular campaign, with the Frenchman scoring yet again in the UEFA Champions League to help his side to a slim 4-3 defeat in the first leg of their semifinal showdown with Manchester City.

In fact, the Blancos striker scored twice, netting in the first half to pull his team back into the game just as it appeared to be drifting away from them, before confidently converting a second-half penalty. His spot kick grabbed all the headlines as it oozed of confidence, with the 34-year-old executing an audacious Panenka over Ederson at such a venue.

This effort saw Benzema make the headlines, with fans and pundits alike praising the former Lyon ace for scoring such a goal. Interestingly, his Panenka came on the back of Real Madrid's league clash with Osasuna, with the Frenchman missing twice from the spot in that victory.

After the game, Karim spoke about that penalty and revealed what was going through his head when he stepped up to the spot. The Spanish Primera Division superstar revealed that it was down to one thing: his mental confidence. The striker told reporters after the final whistle:

"I always have it in my head that if you don't take a penalty, you will never miss a penalty.

"That's mental confidence and that's all. I have a lot of confidence in myself, so I do it and it turns out well."

Benzema would also go on to label his penalty a "cold blooded" effort, which is a take most would agree with. Nonetheless, what matters most is the score line as Real Madrid have a mere one-goal deficit to overcome in the second leg at the Bernabeu.

UEFA Champions League: Sadio Mane equals Didier Drogba's record as Liverpool edges closer to final

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has equaled Didier Drogba's record as the African with the highest number of goals in the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League. The 30-year-old attacker was on target as the Reds secured a 2-0 win over Villarreal to snatch the edge in the first leg of the semifinal tie between the pair.

Liverpool's mandate on Wednesday night was to break down the almost impenetrable wall of Villarreal and after almost an hour of trying, the Premier League side eventually had their breakthrough. First, it was Jordan Henderson who saw his cross deflect off Villarreal full-back Pervis Estupinan into the goal. 133 seconds later, Sadio Mane continued his fine goalscoring form by doubling the host's advantage with an assist from Mohamed Salah.

With the goal, the former Southampton forward took his goal tally at the knockout stage to 14, levelling the tally of former Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba as the highest scoring African at this stage in the history of the Champions League.

In terms of individual accomplishments, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ended the night with one of his own. The German coach has now won each of his four home matches in Champions League semifinals – the joint-best 100% win rate at home in semifinals by any manager in the competition alongside Marcello Lippi and Ottmar Hitzfeld. The trio have all won four times.

PSG considering Premier League coach as Pochettino's replacement

Ligue 1 experts knew that Mauricio Pochettino's time at PSG's coach would end by the end of the season due to his failure to win the UEFA Champions League. Now, the French side have already lined up a list of replacements for the Argentine boss, although they might have to wait a bit to announce his successor if things go the way they had planned.

According to a report by Le Parisien, PSG had lined up Zinedine Zidane to replace Pochettino during the first month of the year, but since PSG did not fire the Argentine, Zidane has decided to snub all offers from the club while he waits for the French National Team's hot seat to be available, which will only happen after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Hence, the team has decided to search for other alternatives, and the French media outlet has revealed that former Chelsea boss and Tottenham tactician Antonio Conte is the man they want to take over once Pochettino is axed.

Conte is still under contract with Tottenham until the end of next season, but if both parties agree to part ways, PSG would only be forced to pay a minimum amount for his services. The main problem for PSG is that Conte's only condition to take the job is not as appealing to them as the option to hire him.

The French newspaper has suggested that Conte requested to work with a new sporting director, which means that PSG must fire Leonardo. The reasons for Conte's wishes were not revealed by Le Parisien, but the newspaper has stated that Conte will not enter into any negotiations with the club until Leonardo is nowhere to be seen.

Furthermore, Conte reportedly wishes to know which of the team's top players will be around for next season, which means that the Italian tactician will not make any announcements until Kylian Mbappé sheds light on his future. The Frenchman is expected to reveal his decision about leaving the club or signing a new deal after May 21, which may also give the club some time to agree terms with Conte in both of those scenarios.

Be that as it may, Mauricio Pochettino seems to have no future at PSG, but it will take a bit more time for his current employers to sign his replacement.

Other key headlines from the world of football

Barcelona opt to extend and increase loan in order to finance stadium revamp

New reports now indicate that the Blaugrana have taken out an additional loan, which will become available in 2023. In addition, the club have extended their terms of their already existing loan.

As per these reports, Barcelona's initial funding secured from Goldman Sachs was approximately $860 million (€815 million), which they acquired via means of a bridge loan worth about $95 million (€90 million). 

The COVID-19 pandemic made it trickier for Barcelona to pay back this initial investment, which was then extended twice to give them more time, from 2021 to February 2022, and now has been extended for a third time. In addition, that bridge loan has been doubled to approximately $190 million (€180 million).

Mourinho planning to spend big money to hire THREE Man United outcasts

The team Mourinho is ready to "raid" during the upcoming transfer window is none other than Manchester United. The Red Devils are expected to witness a massive overhaul in the next weeks, and the Portuguese coach has already asked his agents and Roma representatives to try and lure as much as three players to the Italian top-flight. 

The first of those names is Nemanja Matic. The player's deal with the English club is about to expire, and hiring one of the most experienced midfielders in the world for his Roman project would be wonderful for Mourinho. The player was close to joining Jose this past winter, but Roma executives pulled the plug on the deal and decided to pursue his signing once he became a free agent. Now, it seems that it will only be a matter of weeks to finalize the deal.

The other two players included in the report by Calciomercato are Eric Bailly and Diogo Dalot. Right now, both players have been included in a list of footballers that could be sold during the summer window, but while the Special One has already shown interest in their services, the club will only part ways with them if new coach Erik ten Hag decides not to keep them around.

Liverpool receive huge boost as Jurgen Klopp officially signs new Anfield deal

Straight after Liverpool's 2-0 win over Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League 1st leg semifinals, the conversation quickly shifted to Jurgen Klopp's future at Anfield and whether the German will leave Merseyside if the Reds were to secure the quadruple. The former Dortmund boss was tipped to leave in 2024, with several sources believing he would call it quits before taking a one year sabbatical.

Fortunately, Liverpool fans received a huge boost the day after that Villarreal victory as the legendary manager officially signed a new deal at the club, agreeing to stay until 2026.

Additionally, the manager's closest staff members also committed to the Reds for another two more years. Klopp, who took over in 2015, has already led the Merseyside outfit to a UEFA Champions League, Premier League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup crown. This season, Salah and Co. are only one point behind English top-flight leaders Manchester City, have one foot in the UEFA Champions League final, have already lifted the Carabao Cup trophy, and are set to feature in the FA Cup final next month.
