Lots of things are happening in the football world, from transfers to covid crisis as well as shock results in the premier league… We look at a few
Rangnick talks tough
Manchester United’s interim manager Ralph Rangnick has bemoaned his players’ slow adaptation to his methods and has said there’s no hiding place for anyone in the wake of their shock 1-1 draw against Newcastle United on Monday.
Some players have been rumored to have complained about the intensity of Rangnick’s training method and some even think he stretches beyond the normal training time, but if you want a fine meal, won’t you spend time in the kitchen?
Barcelona eye Morata after Torres deal
There’s a raging covid crisis at Barcelona as we speak but that hasn’t stopped the Catalan giants from seeking new recruits.
Barcelona sealed a return to Spanish football for Ferran Torres on Monday and have swiftly followed that with strong interests in Juventus striker Alvaro Morata; the former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid striker won’t mind the move so expect that to gather pace soon
Liverpool and Chelsea can still catch City – Pep Guardiola
It’s a story you have to take with a pinch of salt considering the knowledge of Pep Guardiola’s unrepentant “whining” nature but the City manager has said the title race is still very much open regardless of the recent failings of the two chasers, Liverpool and Chelsea.
Chelsea conceded a late leveler against Brighton at the Stamford Bridge Stadium while Liverpool lost at Leicester a day before, make of that what you would but yours truly thinks the league is done and dusted, no catching City now.
Mbappe urges Madrid to wait
It was certainly the biggest news of the summer transfer window, no one expected PSG to turn down a mega bid for a player in the final year of his contract, a player who wasn’t ready to sign a new deal, that was major but when asked if he’s ready to move in January, Kyllian Mbappe said an emphatic no.
Real Madrid want the Frenchman as early as the January window that opens again in a matter of hours but Mbappe has told them to wait till the summer when he’d be available for free
