Bruno Fernandes Cannot Defend – Pogba

  Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has hailed his team-mate Bruno Fernandes, but jokingly questioned the Portugal international’s ability to defend.

He is someone who understands the game and understands the movement that will give you a beautiful pass, he can finish too. “He’s all over the place, he can do everything really, except defending! “But really, it’s always a joy to play him, to understand him.

Europa League: Solskjaer Blames Stadium Seats, Red Belts for Man Utd’s Poor Home Form

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has suggested the red wrap on the seats at Old Trafford, could have contributed to their inconsistent home form. According to him, the players were unable to pick each other out during games. United have won 27 points at Old Trafford this season, losing four times and drawing three. However, on the road, they have picked up 36 points and are unbeaten in 23 Premier League games.

Football Lawmakers, IFAB Confirms Change in Handball Rule

  The International Football Association Board (IFAB) has announced that the incidents of accidental handball that lead to a team-mate scoring a goal or having a goal-scoring opportunity, will no longer be considered an offence. Football’s law-making body confirmed this today in a statement. The controversial section of the handball law was enforced during the Premier League game between Fulham and Tottenham on Thursday night. Fulham had a goal by Josh Maja ruled out, when the ball cannoned into the hand of his team-mate Mario Lemina from a Davinson Sanchez clearance. IFAB has now agreed on the change, which comes into effect from July 1. However, competitions have the flexibility to introduce changes before that date. An IFAB statement read: “As the interpret...

Mane Snubs Salah, Names Favourite Liverpool Teammate

  Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane, has picked Roberto Firmino as his “favourite team-mate” at the club. Both players and Mohammed Salah have formed a fearsome front three at Anfield for a few seasons. Although they are stuck in a bad run of form at the moment, Mane remains a big fan of Firmino, who believes does not get the credit he deserves. On his relationship with Firmino, Senegalese star, Mane told ESPN Brasil: “I think Brazil are just lucky to have Firmino. “I’d love to… I always say ‘Bobby, you have to change your nationality and come to Senegal’, which for me would be a dream. “I just love him. And as a team-mate, I think he’s my favourite. I love him.”

Real Sociedad vs Man United: Daniel James’ Assist to me Was Accidental – Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes has said that his team-mate, Daniel James’ assist in Manchester United 4-0 win against Real Sociedad on Thursday was accidental.

The Portuguese said he doubts that James intended to put the ball in his path, but credited him with the assist regardless. “I was expecting the touch from Dan James to me. When he controlled the ball. I think he was trying to control it, but I’ll give him an assist,” he told BT Sport. “I saw the ball close to me and I think on these occasions, the keeper is coming out, if you kick ...

Neuer Would Have Deserved Ballon D’or Over Lewandowski – Joachim Low

There will be a Ballon d’Or winner this year, but Joachim Low would have voted for Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer. Joachim Low believes Manuel Neuer’s Champions League final performance shows he would have deserved the 2020 Ballon d’Or ahead of Bayern Munich team-mate Robert Lewandowski. France Football announced it would not present its annual award for the world’s best player this year due to the coronavirus pandemic which halted some domestic competitions in 2019-20, including Ligue 1. The decision has prompted suggestions Lewandowski has been harshly treated, having appeared the standout candidate to succeed Lionel Messi after his 55 goals fired Bayern to a stunning treble. The striker, who was named Germany’s Footballer of the Year, last week agreed he deserved the...
