The month is winding down but not without the usual drama that comes with the league run-in and the expectations of the coming transfer window; we look at some hot topics across leagues.
Could you leave me alone?
Manchester United’s new manager Erik Ten Hag has asked the Old Trafford club to leave him alone and stop bugging him about their club affairs for now as he wants to finish on a high at Ajax.
Ajax lost the KNVB Cup to PSV last weekend, and the German tactician blamed the poor result on the distraction from Old Trafford. “I will finish here before I think about England or Manchester United; leave me alone for now” – Erik Ten Hag.
Is Pochettino living in denial?
PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino has said emphatically that French superstar Kyllian Mbappe will not leave the Parc des Princes this summer.
Pochettino also said he is committed to the PSG dream and will not be looking to leave any time soon; not sure anyone wants him with Manchester United going for Erik Ten Hag, and no top team wants to trade managers at the moment, Burnley?
Klopp wants more glory in England.
Anfield fears that Jurgen Klopp might walk away from the Liverpool job, and with an unprecedented quadruple in the offing, the German manager has signed an extension to his contract to keep him at the club until 2026.
The contracts of Mohammed Salah and Jordan Henderson are left for Liverpool to focus on, with the former asking for half a million pounds every week to stay with the champions league finalists.
Super Agent Raiola is still breathing.
Reports on Thursday from trusted news outlets suggesting that football journalist and renowned Super-Agent Mino Raiola is dead have come back to be false, and the Italian has blasted the sources as he continues to fight for his life.
Palmieri Tancredi was one of those that broke the news; he has since apologized and deleted the tweet, he also said he wouldn’t be tweeting for a week as a mark of remorse, but the agent, who represents superstars like Erling Braut Haaland and Paul Pogba is still alive but in critical conditions in the hospital.
Leicester City and Westham walk on a tight rope in Europe.
The Thursday night European football engagement didn’t go as planned for England representatives. Westham United lost at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, and Leicester City was forced to a 1-1 draw by Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma.
Westham must overcome the deficit to land their dreams of qualifying for the champions league next season through the Europa League; at the same time, Leicester will have to do it the hard way in Rome, but both sides can relax, knowing away goals conceded wouldn’t hurt them.
