FIFA 20: Lukaku, Immobile lead from the front in latest FUT Team of the Week

By Sports Desk February 05, 2020

Serie A strikers Romelu Lukaku and Ciro Immobile lead the line in FIFA Ultimate Team's latest Team of the Week.

Lukaku and Immobile are two of the form front men in European football, and the duo have earned recognition following their latest goalscoring exploits.

Inter striker Lukaku grabbed both goals in a 2-0 away win at Udinese on Sunday.

And Immobile matched that haul as Lazio thrashed SPAL 5-1, the Italy international's brace taking his 2019-20 league tally to 25 already.

The duo are far from the only big names in this week's selection, however, with Roberto Firmino, Jadon Sancho and Hugo Lloris also among the new in-form cards.

    Massimiliano Allegri says he had contact with Real Madrid over becoming their head coach two years ago, but wanted to stay loyal to Juventus.

    The former Milan boss spent five successful years in charge of Juve prior to his exit at the end of last season.

    After Zinedine Zidane left Madrid following the 2017-18 campaign, the club had short spells with Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari in charge.

    Allegri was one of the other options pursued by the club and the Italian thanked Madrid president Florentino Perez for his interest at the time.

    Madrid ultimately turned back to Zidane in March 2019.

    "Two years ago, there was contact, but nothing came of it because I had a contract with Juve," Allegri said to Marca about Madrid's interest.

    "Furthermore, I had a strong moral commitment to the club and its fans."

    Allegri was asked what he likes most about the work Zidane is doing at Santiago Bernabeu, with a LaLiga title on the horizon as the delayed 2019-20 season nears its conclusion.

    "The strength he has had in finding the indispensable balance of a team so full of class and talent," Allegri said.

    "For me, the positioning of Casemiro has been a tactical masterclass from Zizou."

    Discussing his own future, Allegri continued: "I've been charging my batteries [since leaving Juve] and enjoying time with my family and my city, Livorno, with my lifelong friends.

    "I don't really care [if my next job is in Italy or abroad]. I'm looking for a club to share a project with and which has the ambition to compete to win."

    And when questioned over whether he would like to coach in LaLiga, Allegri added: "Who in their right mind would say no to this question? No one.

    "There is more pleasure of playing in LaLiga, no matter the result. After conceding a goal, the team keeps playing as if nothing has happened. 

    "In Italy, on the other hand, there is much more love and attention for the details of the game and tactics. The brain almost always wins out over the heart, in general.

    "[Italian football is more difficult] because of what I said before. The player doesn't have much freedom to enjoy themselves in a purely instinctive way and this sometimes makes it difficult."

  • Matic signs new three-year Man Utd contract Matic signs new three-year Man Utd contract

    Nemanja Matic has put pen to paper on a new contract with Manchester United that runs until 2023.

    Serbia international Matic had one year remaining on his previous deal.

    But the club announced on Monday he has been signed to fresh terms following some impressive displays under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    The 31-year-old joined United from Chelsea in 2017 and has made 114 appearances.

    "I am very happy that I will continue to be part of this great club," midfielder Matic said in a statement.

    "As a player, I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Manchester United will be a huge honour.

    "This is a really exciting team to be part of, we have a good balance of youth and experience within the squad and there is great comradery amongst the group.

    "This is a key part of the season and we are playing well. We will continue to fight to finish the season on a high and make our amazing supporters proud."

    Solskjaer added: "I am delighted that Nemanja has signed a new contract, I know his experience, professionalism and leadership will be invaluable to this young talented group.

    "We have great strength in midfield and Nemanja's attributes are a key part of that. Nemanja has been here for three seasons now and really understands the values of playing for Manchester United.

    "He remains hugely ambitious and determined which will be vital as we look to achieve our aims over the coming years."

    Matic has started each of United's past three Premier League games, helping them extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 16 matches.

    Solskjaer's side have moved up to fifth in the top flight, three points behind third-place Leicester City in the race for Champions League qualification.
