Paul Pogba to return from knee injury January

Published

Theheute-

According to Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, Paul Pogba is expected to return from knee surgery in January, despite worries that the Frenchman might not make the World Cup this winter.

Pogba, who returned to Juventus from Manchester United this summer on a free transfer, has yet to make his second Juventus debut due to a knee injury he sustained during the preseason that Allegri confirmed required surgery.

Pogba’s surgery was successful, and Juventus has since assured supporters that he is now on the road to recovery, but Allegri gave a cryptic response when asked if the midfielder would miss the World Cup.

Allegri predicted that he would return in January.

When asked if he was excluding Pogba from the world championship later this year with that remark, Allegri responded, “The World Cup is not my problem, Juventus’ problem is that he comes back in January.”

With France as the defending World Cup champions and the tournament beginning on November 21 in Qatar, Pogba will have just over two months to recover fully from knee surgery.

Pogba has been a crucial component of Didier Deschamps’ France team, and he performed so admirably at the 2018 World Cup that both supporters and detractors were perplexed by his failure to achieve the same success with Manchester United on a club level.

He has been a consistent starter since 2018, but this injury kept him home during the most recent international break, where France lost all four of their Nations League games.

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.”
