Manchester United are monitoring Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld contract situation: report

Sports
Manchester United reportedly keeping an eye on Tottenham Hotspurs defender Toby Alderweireld as they look to bring in recruitments in the summer. Reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho is keen on bolstering his team’s defence after recent fixtures have exploited the club’s only weakness. United’s losses to Newcastle and Tottenham were frustrating and of themselves but it was more so due to some defensive errors. Against Tottenham Phil Jones was at fault, scoring an own goal whilst at Newcastle Chris Smalling was at fault after he conceded a free-kick for diving in which the Magpies capitalised on. Rumours have surfaced that Mourinho is going to move on both players and is monitoring Alderweireld just in case an opportunity reveals itself. According to the Mirror, Manche...

Fernando Varela PAOK beat Larissa 3-0 on Monday evening. PAOK’s second goal was scored by former Steaua Bucharest defender, Fernando Varela. The 30 year old headed home from Dimitros Pelkas’ corner in the 40th minute of the match. He then proceeded to run off the pitch and celebrate with his son who had been suffering from bullying at school. Why was he bullied? Varela’s son was taunted by his class mates due to his father’s own goal which came in a match last season against Olympiacos. Varela had actually scored his first goal for PAOK earlier in the match but scored a disastrous own goal in the 25th minute. Olympiacos went on to win the game 2-1 with Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic scoring a late late winner deep into added time. PAOK defans oyuncus...

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has claimed that Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford may have to leave the club in search for first team football. Alexis Sanchez’s arrival from the Gunners in January sparked a debate on what the move could mean for United’s youngsters. Anthony Martial and Rashford in particular have been the ones who the press are seemingly concerned about given the position they share. Both players play in Sanchez’s preferred left wing position and some people have claimed he will derail their development. Henry appears to be on board with that assessment and thinks there may come a time for Marcus to reconsider his position at the club. According to Goal, Thierry said on Sky Sports: “One of the most important things for me is that you have to ...

Kieron Dyer tells incredible Paul Scholes story

Sports
Why didn’t Paul Scholes play more games for England? Paul Scholes is undoubtably one of the best players to have ever played football in England. Manchester born and bred, Scholes made 499 appearances for Manchester United having been at the club since the age of 14. Scholes won 25 major honours whilst playing for United and is debatably the club’s greatest ever central midfielder. It is therefore a great surprise to note that Scholes only ever played for England 66 times. Sven-Goran Eriksson would play Scholes on the left hand side of the midfield to accommodate the midfield pairing of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. There is no denying the Gerrard and Lampard were quality players but failing to play Paul Scholes in his correct position was a massive mistake. Scholes re...
