Solskjaer unhappy with Man Utd board for not granting his request

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy with his bosses for failing to sign a central midfielder, according to the Manchester Evening News. Solskjaer is under pressure following a 4-2 defeat at Leicester City last weekend. The loss saw United drop to sixth place in the Premier League, five points below leaders Chelsea. Solskjaer is under pressure to win a trophy this season, after the club brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer. However, the 48-year-old requested for a midfielder to beef up his squad and didn’t get one. The Red Devils were strongly linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice, but the Hammers stood firm on their £100million valuation. They were also linked with Kalvin Phillips of Leeds United, but the England inter...

Euro 2020 final: Ex-Chelsea manager, Conte tells Italy how to beat England

Former Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte, has advised Italy on how to beat England when both teams clash in the Euro 2020 final tie on Sunday. Italy will, on Sunday night, face England in the Euro 2020 final at the Wembley Stadium. Conte said for Italy to beat England, they have to target two Three Lions players, Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips, who brings balance to Gareth Southgate’s side. “There are two very physical midfielders like Rice and Phillips, who bring balance, but very few vertical passes, often going for the simple option,” Conte wrote in his column for La Gazzetta dello Sport. “A weak spot for England is that if their defence is pressed when building out from the back, they are not as good as Spain at escaping the press. However, if you are ultra-attacking in you...

England vs Denmark: Ex-Chelsea defender, Ashley Cole apologises to Phillips after 2-1 win

Former Chelsea left-back, Ashley Cole, has revealed that he issued a personal apology to England midfielder, Kalvin Phillips after the Three Lions defeated Denmark 2-1 in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final tie. Phillips delivered a solid display at the heart of England’s midfield as Gareth Southgate’s defeated Denmark during extra time to qualify for Euro 2020 final. But the Leeds United star had come under fire before the start of the Euro 2020. Cole was among those who questioned Phillips’ contribution on social media and suggested that the 25-year-old did not merit a place in England’s midfield. However, after England’s win over Denmark, Cole revealed that he approached Phillips to say ‘sorry’. “It’s emotional,” Cole told ITV. “I will say it live on air, I had to get...

Ukraine vs England: Southgate reacts as Mourinho names players to be benched

  England manager, Gareth Southgate, has brushed off the clamour to rest England players, Harry Maguire, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips and Phil Foden when they face Ukraine tonight at risk of suspension for a potential Euro 2020 semi-final. DAILY POST reports the four England players have all picked up a booking at the tournament so far. Roma manager Jose Mourinho had led calls for the likes of Rice and Maguire, others to be left out at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, given Southgate has plenty of alternative options available within his 26-man squad. Reacting to the development, Southgate said at his pre-match press conference that looking beyond Ukraine would be a ‘big error’, insisting that picking a strong team capable of beating Ukraine was his main ‘focus’. “I don’t re...

Euro 2020: Roy Keane Names two Outstanding Players in England squad

  Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, has identified Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice as the two excellent players in the England squad. Both Rice and Phillips were impressive for England in their Euro 2020 opener against Croatia at the weekend. England defeated Croatia on Sunday at Wembley, thanks to Manchester City star Raheem Sterling’s second-half goal. “I thought it was a very good performance by England,” Keane told ITV. “Very mature, how they managed the game and they mixed their game up well – good short passes then stretching Croatia. “What they did which was vital was winning the midfield battle. If you win the midfield battle, it gives you a foothold to win football matches. Phillips and Rice were excellent. A very good day for England,” he said. En...

Sterling gives England perfect start to Euro 2020

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike got England off to a winning start at Euro 2020, as they beat Croatia 1-0 in sweltering conditions at Wembley. There had been debate about the forward's starting role under boss Gareth Southgate but, despite some patchy goal-scoring form for Manchester City this past season, he has been a key figure for England and the local lad sent them top of Group D with his 13th international goal in his last 17 games. In front of 22,500 fans, Sterling slotted in after excellent build-up play from Kalvin Phillips on an afternoon when Southgate's selections paid off and England earned some measure of revenge on the side who knocked them out of the World Cup semi-finals three years ago. Phil Foden struck the post early on as England...

Gareth Southgate Names 33-man England Squad for Euros

  England manager, Gareth Southgate, has named a 33-man provisional squad for the European Championship. Southgate included Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben White, Ben Godfrey and Aaron Ramsdale but Eric Dier misses out. Injury doubts like Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips make the cut, with the list is expected to be trimmed to 26 players on June 1. Bukayo Saka, Ollie Watkins, Mason Greenwood and 17-year-old Jude Bellingham are among the others to get the nod. Jesse Lingard is in the expanded squad but there is no space for Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford, who scored 17 Premier League goals this season, or Southampton’s Danny Ings. The Three Lions will play Austria on June 2 and Romania on June 6 in warm-up friendly matches, before kicking off their ...

Grayson: Leeds should sell Jansson to fund signings

Former Leeds United boss Simon Grayson believes the club should cash in on Pontus Jansson. The Whites narrowly missed out on promotion this season and Grayson thinks the sale of veteran defender Jansson could finance multiple signings. "There are other players I would want to keep ahead of Pontus Jansson," Grayson told Omnisport. "People like Kalvin Phillips and Jack Clarke, the younger players who can be the bedrock of Leeds for the next few years. "I think Jansson does well when he concentrates on what he is there to do, in terms of being a defender "Of course, they want to try and keep hold of them if possible, but players have been sold in the past to finance the next group of players. "Roofe has proved he is goalscorer and Phillips, with his versatility and age, his abi...
