Mourinho’s Special Juan on fire as Man Utd look on course for silverware

Category: Euro news

With Manchester United steadily heading in the right direction since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, Juan Mata has been a key player.

But does Mata get the recognition he deserves?

When Mourinho was Chelsea boss he decided to sell Player of the Year Juan Mata to their Manchester rivals. So when Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford many felt Mata would be first out the door.

Yet despite this, like the true professional he is, Mata got his head down and proved he was worthy of place in the United squad, during the pre-season campaign, this for Jose was enough for him to survive.

Mata seemed very much down the pecking order following the arrivals of Paul Pogba and Henrik Mkhitaryan, but he stayed patient.

After a slow start and with many top players underachieving, Mata did not disappoint when gi...

Liverpool team news: Klopp blow as pair rated as major doubts for Leicester City clash

Category: Euro news

Liverpool face a trip to Leicester City on Monday night, and they’ll likely travel without Daniel Sturridge and Dejan Lovren.

Both players were absent from training at Melwood on Thursday, as per The Mirror, with Lovren missing out due to a knee injury which has kept him out of the last two games.

Meanwhile, Sturridge has yet to recover from a virus which forced him to return him early from Liverpool’s training camp in La Manga.

In turn, although both players will continue to be assessed on Friday, they’re both considered major doubts for the trip to the King Power Stadium which will be a setback for Jurgen Klopp who would hope to have a fully fit squad available for selection at this stage of the season.

It promises to be a difficult game after the reigning Premier League champions decide...

Sevilla 2-1 Leicester City player ratings: Vardy bags huge away goal, 8/10 Schmeichel pivotal

Category: Euro news

Leicester City kept their Champions League hopes alive as Jamie Vardy scored a crucial away goal in their 2-1 loss at Sevilla on Wednesday night.

The Foxes fell two goals behind after Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa had put the hosts in charge, but up stepped Vardy in the second half to score his first Champions League and put the Premier League champions in a strong position ahead of the second leg next month.

While they continue to fight a relegation battle domestically, things have been going much better for Claudio Ranieri’s side in Europe.

It looked as though it could all be about to get derailed as they conceded their first goals in the competition, but they showed great determination to give themselves a great chance of advancing to the quarter-finals.

Kasper Schmeichel was brillia...

Man United transfer news: Stalwart set to quit for £750k-a-week deal, £13.8m signing to exit

Category: Euro news

Man United forward Wayne Rooney reportedly has the all clear to move to China in the next seven days, with Daley Blind possibly following him out the exit door.

The 31-year-old has played a bit-part role under Jose Mourinho in recent months, and in turn it has led to speculation over his future.

Surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton to become the club’s all-time top goalscorer was seen as another decisive factor in speeding up his exit from Old Trafford, and according to The Mirror, it appears as though he’s been free to move on ever since.

Rooney has won every trophy available during his time with United, and has made 549 appearances for the club while scoring 250 goals, but it appears as though his time is coming to a natural end with fierce competition for places making it difficult for the Eng...
