Transfer: Ten Hag ‘surprised’ by Manchester United’s decision

Published

on

New Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag is ‘surprised’ by the club’s lack of transfer activity in the summer transfer window so far.

According to The Mirror, Ten Hag was expecting Man United to have made several signings by now and has been astonished by the lack of progress the club’s hierarchy have made to replenish the depleted squad he inherited from Ralf Rangnick.

Man United are keen to bolster their squad this summer after finishing in the sixth position on the Premier League table last season under Rangnick.

The likes of Juan Mata, Paul Poga, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard, among others, have all left the club on free transfers.

Rangnick had suggested that as many as eight or even ten new players would arrive in the summer, but so far, Ten Hag has yet to land a single summer signing.

Ten Hag had hoped to have several new players in place by now but is facing a race against time just to get a single transfer completed before pre-season starts.

Meanwhile, there is an expectation that things will start to gather pace in the coming days, with a deal for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong progressing.

Olise’s late strike gets Palace point against United

Published

on

Michael Olise has helped Crystal Palace get a point against Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park Stadium on Wednesday night.

The midfielder’s late strike in extra-time, 91′, levelled the game against United, who had controlled the lead since the 43rd minute of the first half after Bruno Fernandes’ fine finish put the Red Devils ahead just before the break.

A relentless Olise scored from a free kick with a left-footed shot to the top right corner. The equalising goal saw United’s dream of replacing defending EPL champions City in the second place on the league table, fade away, as they remain third with 39 points, having played a game more than City.

Crystal Palace remains in 12th place with 23 points.

Atletico Madrid head coach speaks on leaving Atletico Madrid

Published

on

Atletico Madrid head coach, Diego Simeone, has insisted that nobody has personally told him to leave the club.

Rumours have persisted that Simeone, 52, could be set to end this 11-year stay at Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

However, the Argentine has now stated that no one at the club has asked him to quit the La Liga giants.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey tie with Levante on Wednesday night, Simeone said when asked about reports suggesting he would leave the club at the end of the season: “No one has personally asked me to leave.”

However, having already been eliminated from UEFA Champions League and sitting 13 points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga table, the Copa del Rey is Atletico Madrid’s last realistic opportunity for a trophy this season.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Simeone’s side, as they sit fourth in the league.

Simeone added, “The boys are enthusiastic to reverse this situation that we have experienced since the break and prior to the World Cup. It’s been a regular to a bad season. For me, there is growth after the break, hopefully, we will continue in that line.”
