Marcus Rashford absent from Man Utd training ahead of Europa League clash

Published

Theheute-

Marcus Rashford missed training on Monday and is doubtful for Manchester United’s Europa League match against Sheriff Tiraspol.

The Red Devils were defeated by Real Sociedad in their opening Group E match last week, shockingly losing 1-0 at Old Trafford. They now face table-topping Sheriff, who romped to a 3-0 victory over Omonia on matchday one.

Rashford, who along with Jadon Sancho is in line for an England recall, might not play in the game in Moldova, though, as he missed United’s most recent training.

The 24-year-old has already scored three Premier League goals this season, showing signs of returning to form, and was a key player in the 3-1 victory over Arsenal before the football season was put on hold following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Thursday’s match against Moldova will go on as scheduled, but United’s Sunday Premier League match against Leeds United has already been cancelled due to a lack of police.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to start again on Thursday night as he tries to get back into Erik ten Hag’s starting lineup if Marcus Rashford is unable to play due to an injury or a precautionary absence from training.

The 37-year-old Portuguese legend, who was seeking a transfer away from the club over the summer in order to play Champions League football, has largely had a watching brief under Ten Hag. Questions have been raised regarding the player’s ability to adapt to the Dutchman’s style of play.

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.”
