Solbakken – Copenhagen must be perfect against Man United

Danish outfit Copenhagen will be looking to cause a major upset when they face Manchester United in the Quarter-finals of the competition in Cologne on Monday. Manager of the side Stale Solbakken has noted that they need to be perfect to stand any chance of upsetting the Red Devils. They beat Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir in the last 16 to progress to this stage with a 3 nil at home last Wednesday, thanks to goals from Rasmus Falk and Jonas Wind. Regardless, Solbakken acknowledges the quality of the opponents and pointed out that his side must embrace perfection if they are to upset the Red Devils who had lost just once in their last 23 games. "In order to [beat United] we have to play perfect, we need a bit of luck. We maybe need a United that doesn't fire on all cylinders," h...

Schmeichel – The criticism of Da Gea is very harsh

Ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League final day showdown between Leicester City and Manchester United for a place in the top 4, Foxes' goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has described the criticisms of Red Devils' goalie David de Gea as harsh. The Spain international has come under fire since the return of Premier League action. He has made some errors that have contributed to dropped points for United as well as elimination from the FA Cup. However, Schmeichel has gone to defend the Spaniard in a recent chat with BBC Radio 5 Live: "Goalkeepers are going to get scrutinised," Schmeichel said. "For me, the important thing is context. The kind of scrutiny that he's getting at the moment is very harsh." It can be recalled that Da Gea failed to stop Giroud's opener for Chelsea in the FA Cup...

Bailly returns to training but is a big doubt against West Ham

Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly is a doubt for Man United's Premier League clash against West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday after a clash of heads with Harry Maguire on Sunday in the FA cup semi-final 3:1 loss to Chelsea. The defender is still under assessment after returning to United training on Tuesday according to Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The clash of heads was a scary one as he was given oxygen and carried away in a neck brace before being rushed to the hospital for further checks and treatment. The incident was more worrying as there were fears that the center-back who has been injury-prone in recent times would be on the sidelines for a long while but fears were allayed with his social media post on Monday. The Red Devils will return to Premier Leag...

Angel Gomes set to leave Manchester United

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Angel Gomes is likely to leave the club. He was initially hoping that the midfielder would extend his contract at Old Trafford but there has been no update, with the 19-year-old's deal set to run out on Tuesday. "I've got no news, nothing, so it doesn't look like [he will stay]," Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday. "I've not heard from them last night or this morning. It seems like they haven't managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes [he will leave]."

Man United’s net debt rises by nearly £130 million

This is one news that fans from the Red side of Manchester won't find appealing. Manchester United's net debt has risen to nearly £130 million following the payment of defender Harry Maguire's world record fee in cash. It can be recalled that the England international made the move to Old Trafford from Leicester City in a staggering world-record deal last summer, making him the most expensive defender in the history of the game. The deal was worth £80m and although clubs normally opt to make transfers in installments, the Old Trafford outfit agreed to pay the fee upfront after months of negotiations for the defender who was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's top target at the time.

Liverpool emerge as favorites to sign Koulibaly

The Reds have emerged as favorites to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly this summer ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain according to reports. Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly a big fan of the Senegalese center-back who has established himself as one of the best defenders in Europe in recent years. However, Le 10 Sport have claimed that the 28-year-old is most likely to end up at Anfield if he leaves Napoli and would play alongside Virgil Van Dijk in the Liverpool back four. Jurgen Klopp believes the pair would form an efficient partnership. PSG are also interested in the defender but will stick with veteran captain Thiago Silva for next season. Meanwhile, Koulibaly favors a move to the Premier League over Ligue 1. The likes of ...
