Published

Theheute-

In January, the Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce will try to sign Slavia Prague forward Peter Olayinka.

The versatile forward who scored against Fenerbahce in the UEFA Conference League last year is someone the Turkish club has long admired.

This summer, the former league champions tried to convince him to move to Turkey, but he was not interested.

When the transfer window reopens in January, Fenerbahce will reportedly make another offer for Olayinka, according to CNN Turk.

The 26-year-old has scored three goals and provided an assist in nine games for Slavia Prague this season.

Olayinka has won three league championships and two Czech Cups with Slavia during his four years in Prague.

In another report, Newcastle United and Central Coast Mariners are negotiating a contract with teen forward Garang Kuol.

The 17-year-old, who will turn 18 next week, was drafted into Australia’s squad for two upcoming friendlies against rival New Zealand and is expected to play. He is also now being predicted to make their World Cup roster.

Kuol is now close to finalising a deal with Premier League powerhouse Newcastle, which is crucial for the Mariners as they hope to soon reach an agreement.

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.”
