All rumors, he isn’t leaving Old Trafford – Mourinho speaks on star player’s future

Manchester United manager José Mourinho has rubbished claims that his star player Paul Pogba wanted to leave the team during last month’s transfer window.

It was reported that the Frenchman almost forced his move to Barcelona before the end of July but the move failed to push through before the window shut down.

However, the Portuguese tactician has denied reports that the former Juventus playmaker wants to end his ties with the Red Devils.

While speaking to the reporters after his team’s hard-fought victory against Watford last night, Mourinho confirmed that the player didn’t tell him about his decision to leave Old Trafford, so, everything reports from the media is nothing but mere rumours.

According to Mourinho, Pogba remains loyal to the former Premier League Champions and he’s ready to give his 100% to the team in their mission to reclaim the Premier League glory by the end of the current campaign.

Though Barcelona haven’t given up in their chase after the player’s signature, Mourinho is confident of keeping the Frenchman beyond this season as he remains one of the best midfielders in the League and beyond.

Juventus are also said to be keeping close tabs on Pogba’s situations at Old Trafford, hoping to make move for his service in January.

Having captured Cristiano Ronaldo, the Scudetto Champions have made the 25-year-old their prime target heading into the winter transfer market.

This season’s UEFA Europa League commenced last night with some eye high-profile fixtures.

Arsenal win with huge goal-margin

Arsenal were at home to their Ukrainian opponents Vorskla Poltava and Unai Emery’s men began their Europa League campaign on winning note.

The Gunners were in possession of the ball for a larger portion of the first period but they were unable to convert their chances.

However, the home side eventually break the deadlock via Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal after a great square-pass from Alex Iwobi, who had an electrifying performance throughout the encounter.

Aubameyang doubled the Gunners lead in the second half of the game before substitutes Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil scored each to bring the game behind Vorskla’s reach.

The Ukrainian side scored two quick goals but it was too late to get a miraculous comeback as the game ended 4-2 in favour of the home side.

Elsewhere, Arsenal target Ever Banega scored twice to help his side Sevilla to a comfortable 5-1 win over Belgian side Standard Liege.

Sevilla, who won the competition for three consecutive seasons in 2014, 2015 and 2016, were impressive from the start of the encounter through to the end.

Wissam Ben Yedder also scored a brace to ensure that the Sevilla side recorded a winning start to their Europa League campaign.

Chelsea is enjoying a successful campaign under Maurizio Sarri while they extended a winning run of form against Greek side PAOK on Thursday where Chelsea’s No.11 walked off the pitch in the late period of the game.

Albeit, they took the Lion’s share of possession and an early goal from Willian via a brilliant attack but they finished the game with what looked like Sarri wasn’t comfortable with.

The Spanish player was unable to endure with his injury sustained few minutes to the end of 90minutes from a collision with goalkeeper Alexandros Paschakalis, while Sarri had already made complete changes, he had to manage 10 men against PAOK afterwards.

Pedro posted on his Instagram page to pacify the nerves of his followers.

“Everything’s ok despite the incident at the end of the game. Come on Blues!”

While at the end of the match Sarri replied with response to Pedro’s status:

“I don’t know exactly the situation,” the Blues manager said.

The 59-year-old manager admitted that he wasn’t happy with the score-line but he was pleased with the three points.

Sarri’s men will travel to London to face West Ham on Thursday, a place where they struggled under Antonio Conte with a 1-nil defeat last season.

‘It’s a striker’s dream’: Ex-Liverpool player turns interest back to Anfield.

Roberto Firmino

Ex-Liverpool player Robbie Keane his poised that he would fit into Liverpool’s current front three because he believes he plays like Roberto Firmino.

Republic of Ireland’s legend claims that Jurgen Klopp’s pattern is “a strike’s dream” and as such attackers would love to play under the manager due to his style.

Keane made 28 appearances for the YNWA side and registered seven goals in total after moving from Tottenham for £19 million plus add-ons.

Keane was a very fast player and he has a special talent for driving pass oppositions while with the ball.

As the all-time leading goal scorer with 68 goals with his national teams, he believes he would adapt so quickly to join triumvirate with Mo Salah and Saido Mane because he plays exactly like the Brazilian Firmino.

He spoke in Paddy Power’s 30th about his love for Liverpool’s style:

“The way the Firmino plays is very similar to my game. I like to drop off, in that number ten role, and if you’ve got two players who are that quick to play in on either side of you, it’s a striker’s dream.”

The Dubliner believes that what makes Liverpool special than others is how quick and direct they run against opponents which helps the Reds to create so many chances.

“We’ve seen it against top teams this week in Tottenham and PSG, they couldn’t deal with it. They create so many chances, they’re a horrible team to play against.”
