Sanchez: I have no regrets over Man Utd move

Alexis Sanchez has said he has no regrets over his decision to join Manchester United last year.

The Chile international signed for Inter Milan on a season-long loan after 18 months at Old Trafford where he managed only five goals in 45 appearances.

The forward has joined up with Romelu Lukaku at Inter after the Belgium international also joined the Nerazzurri this summer.

“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United,” he told BBC Sport. “It’s the club that’s won the most in England.

“When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic — I was happy there — but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something.7

“I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.”

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Sanchez could feature for the club after his loan spell in Serie A but the forward said he needs regular minutes on the pitch to feel happy.

“I think that I’m happy when I play for my national team,” he added. “I was happy at Manchester United too, but I’ve always said to my friends I want to play.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

“If they would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game — and I didn’t know why.”

Meanwhile, Inter have confirmed Sanchez will wear the No. 7 shirt at the club this season.

Awkward… Is Liverpool’s African brotherhood on the rocks?

There was friction within African football’s most beloved double act this weekend, as Sadio Mane’s frustrations with Mohamed Salah boiled over, although there’s been plenty of success for the continent’s stars in Europe’s major leagues this past week.

Mane’s displeasure with his teammate came within the context of another resounding Liverpool victory, with the Senegal forward netting the Reds’ second in a 3-0 win at Burnley.

Mane played a key role in another fine Reds performance, as they maintained their 100 percent start to the new campaign and secured a club-record 13th successive league win in the process.

The 27-year-old’s second goal of the season came via a Roberto Firmino assist, as the Brazilian exposed space in the Burnley half, dribbled to the edge of the box and played in Mane, who snapped his shot beyond Nick Pope.nfl nike jersey cheap

Earlier, the attacker had played in Salah for a fine chance, only for the Egyptian to strike the woodwork, although the latter didn’t return the favour late on when he opted to go for goal himself, rather than tee up Mane.

The West African reacted emotively after being replaced, gesticulating furiously to teammates and not hiding his anguish at perceived selfish play on the part of Salah.5

In another context, this act would be perceived as a gross display of dissent, but in this Liverpool machine, it’s being read as a testament to the side’s hunger and single-mindedness under Jurgen Klopp.

Certainly, the coach opted to play down Mane’s frustrations post-match.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“I could describe five or six situations where everyone thought, ‘pass it, pass it, pass it’,” Klopp told journalists, as per the Metro. “That is the freedom of the player.

“The boys have to make these decisions: pass the ball, don’t pass the ball,” he added. “We can make this mistakes. You can lose the ball and mis-kick the ball, or sometimes you cannot see your teammate.

“It is not that you ignore him. Sometimes to us it looks like you must see him but you don’t. It’s not a big challenge, but of course with a striker always you can have this.

“What you do depends on the situation,” the German coach concluded. “We will leave it 100 percent because we won 3-0, and everyone goes away in different directions. In one week, I don’t think I will talk about it again.”

Credit must also go to Joel Matip, one of the unsung heroes of this Liverpool side, who cleared an Ashley Barnes effort off the line with the scores level, ensuring the contest didn’t turn against the visitors.

Also in the Premier League, Alex Iwobi scored his second goal in a week for Everton as they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2, with new Ivory Coast call-up Willy Boly seeing red in stoppage time.

Ibrahimovic: ‘If United need me, I’m here’

LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has joked about returning to Manchester United after claiming he is still good enough to play in the Premier League.

Ibrahimovic, 37, has scored 46 goals in 49 games for Galaxy since arriving from Old Trafford in 2018 but after United sold Romelu Lukaku this summer with Alexis Sanchez set to follow, he hinted at a comeback.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

“Nah, I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it, I have 33 trophies that I brought with me here and hopefully I can get something here. And then we will see where that adventure finishes.”

The former Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Barcelona and Juventus striker added that he still checks for United’s results and was aware of the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.6

“I look, I look, I look,” he added. “I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky. If they score the penalty, it’s a different game but a game in England is not finished until its finished.

“Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment.”

Ibrahimovic said he is not surprised to see Wayne Rooney depart Major League Soccer but is not sure what he will do when his own contract is up at the end of the year.

“No, I’m not surprised [that he’s going back],” Ibrahimovic said. “Absolutely not.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

“I think he came, he tried, he did his best and, yeah, he had patience. You need a lot of patience and it has finished, the patience. I mean, my deal is until December 31. What happens afterwards I don’t know.

“I’m in a different position than Wazza. Wazza is much younger than me. I am old but still dominating, still making the difference. Let’s see what happens. I have to be feeling good physically.”

Man Utd hammer Chelsea with Rashford double

Marcus Rashford scored two goals with Anthony Martial and Daniel James also on the scoresheet to earn Manchester United an emphatic 4-0 victory over Chelsea in their opening match of the Premier League.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed debuts to new boys Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire with James left on the bench while his opposite number Frank Lampard opted to start without United States international Christian Pulisic, but did name youngster Mason Mount in his line up.nfl cheap jerseys nike

The visitors were the better team in the early exchanges and will argue the opening goal came against the run of play.

Referee Anthony Taylor played advantage following a foul by Jorginho and in the next phase of play Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma was adjudged to have fouled Rashford in the box. Following a short consultation with the video assistant referee, Taylor pointed to the spot and Rashford made no mistake.7

The goal galvanised United who improved after taking the lead, but it was Chelsea who came closest to scoring when left-back Emerson Palmieri rattled David De Gea’s crossbar.

Lampard introduced Pulisic for his Premier League debut on 58 minutes and he showed some bright touches, winning a free kick with his first involvement.

However, as they pushed forward in search of an equaliser, Chelsea were caught on the counter-attack and were 2-0 down on 65 minutes.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Maguire won the ball on the edge of the United box before playing in Rashford. The England forward passed it to Jesse Lingard. He teed up Andreas Pereira, who swung in a tantalising cross, which was finished off by Martial.

And just two minutes later, it was 3-0 when Pogba won the ball in midfield and played in Rashford, who beat the offside trap to slot the ball past goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Solskjaer introduced James, who got in on the act with a debut goal on 82 minutes to make it 4-0 when played in by Pogba after another United counter.

The result represents a dream start to the campaign for Solskjaer but, for Lampard, there will have been some serious concerns as to how much his side struggled to deal with United’s counter-attacks.

Pulisic Watch: How U.S. star is doing at Chelsea, game by game

Welcome to the Christian Pulisic Watch, as the U.S. international starts the next phase of his career after his $73 million move to Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund. ESPN FC will be tracking the American’s progress here all season.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

How he performed (out of 10): 5 — All told, Pulisic was by no means overwhelmed as he entered from the substitutes’ bench, but the fact remains that he wasn’t that impactful, and the chance he created came long after the game had been decided. That said, Pulisic walked into a team that fell apart defensively after he entered the match, so Lampard will have far bigger concerns about his side than Pulisic’s performance.5

Highlight: Normally, making your debut with your new club would rank as a highlight, but a 4-0 away defeat tempers this considerably. Pulisic did have one sequence where he shook loose from Aaron Wan-Bissaka only to be fouled by Paul Pogba after he released the ball. Pulisic’s best moment came in second-half stoppage time when he set up Emerson Palmieri for an attempt at goal that forced a sharp save from United goalkeeper David De Gea.

Lowlight: The team performance was one to forget given the scoreline, with Chelsea’s defense looking highly suspect. For Pulisic, he started the game on the bench, which counts as a disappointment given the anticipation attached to his debut. Frank Lampard, who was making a league debut of his own as the club’s manager after starring for the Blues as a player, preferred Ross Barkley and Pedro in the wide positions that Pulisic would have been expected to occupy.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Lampard told NBC Sports afterwards that, “I just felt coming to Old Trafford, the type of game it was, I knew we needed bodies in midfield because it’s a busy area for them … So Ross coming in off the line, bringing a bit of stability in midfield and around midfield would be good for us.”

After entering the match in the 58th minute, Pulisic did have a few chances to run at the defense but wasn’t able to threaten the United goal off the dribble. He also had a chance to pick out fellow substitute Olivier Giroud with a cross in second-half stoppage time, but couldn’t connect.

Reds’ Brewster nightmare for defenders – Sancho

Jadon Sancho was not surprised to see Rhian Brewster strike a supremely confident penalty in Liverpool’s 3-2 friendly loss to Borussia Dortmund, and he predicted Brewster would put it in the top corner, while adding that his England teammate is a nightmare for defenders.

The pair, who won the Under-17 World Cup with England in 2017 and finished as runners-up in the European Championships that year, featured in different halves at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, on Friday.

Sancho started the first 45 minutes for Dortmund and was on the bench to watch Brewster score his fourth preseason goal for Liverpool, from the spot after Ben Woodburn was impeded by Mateu Morey on 74 minutes.

“I knew it was going in as soon as he put the ball in his hands,” the BVB forward, described by Jurgen Klopp as “one of the biggest talents in world football,” said.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

“Why? England! I’ve seen him do it all the time, top corner. I just knew what was coming.7

“He spends time after training, practising and practising his technique. I always used to see him out on the pitches. Penalties, free kicks, he took them all. Playing for Dortmund, I couldn’t say what was going to happen, but I knew.”

“He is a great player. I played with him a lot for England and he scored a lot of goals for us and I have assisted him! It’s a good thing for us to have someone like him.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

“I feel like he is at the right club, he is developing and he is still so young. Just give him the time and patience and you will see.”

Sancho is confident that 19-year-old Brewster will command the attention of a bigger audience by the end of 2019-20 as he provides cover for Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino along with Divock Origi.

“I definitely think so,” he said.

“He is so focused and will keep working hard. I feel like he can do it. I have played with him.

“I know how good he is. He causes defenders nightmares.”

Sources: De Gea saga to end with six-year deal

David De Gea’s new Manchester United contract is set to keep him at Old Trafford for the next six years, sources have told ESPN FC.

The Spaniard is expected to pen his new deal, worth more than £110 million, before the start of the season to bring an end to 18 months of talks.

Sources told ESPN FC the goalkeeper, rated as one of the best in the world, has been given assurances that United remain committed to challenging for the Premier League and Champions League after a sixth-place finish last season saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side forced to settle for a place in the Europe League.

His new contract will keep him at the club until he is 34 and he will be eligible for a testimonial in two years after moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid in 2011.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale6

Sources also told ESPN FC one of the reasons behind his decision to stay at United, shunning interest from Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, was the support he received from Solskjaer during a disastrous end to the season.

A series of high profile mistakes, including a terrible gaffe in the 3-0 defeat to Barcelona at Camp Nou in April, hit his confidence, but despite calls for the 28-year-old to be dropped he kept his place — a gesture appreciated by De Gea.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Confidence over De Gea’s new deal should mean that Dean Henderson is allowed to return to Sheffield United on loan.

The England Under-21 goalkeeper, who has attracted interest from Bayern Munich, spent last season at Bramall Lane and manager Chris Wilder is keen to have him for their first season back in the Premier League following promotion in May.

Henderson is in negotiations over a new contract and sources have told ESPN FC that after fresh talks in London last week there is confidence on both sides the 22-year-old will sign a new deal before heading back to Sheffield United.

Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet to stay – Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has said he expects Simon Mignolet to remain at Liverpool following positive discussions with the goalkeeper.

The 31-year-old, demoted as the club’s No. 1 first to Loris Karius from January 2018 then again after the £65 million signing of Alisson last summer, was considering departing Anfield in search of more game time.cheap nfl nike jersey

And following the 3-1 preseason victory over Bradford City, Klopp disclosed a talk with the goalkeeper that suggests he will extend his six-year spell with the club.

“Yeah, how I’ve heard,” Klopp responded when asked whether Mignolet will remain with Liverpool. “I’ve had a lot of conversations with him over the last couple of years and months.7

“Before we left [for holiday], we had a talk and I would say, yes [he will stay]. I think at a club like Liverpool you need two No. 1s at least and we have that, that’s cool, with Ali and Simon.

“That’s a very good situation for the club, but a situation I think you should have and that’s why everything is fine from my point of view.”

Goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan, 35, released by Middlesbrough this summer, is set to train with Liverpool during their tour of the United States with the Reds missing four players in the position.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

Alisson is on holiday after helping Brazil win the Copa America, while Kamil Grabara is expected to go out on loan with Huddersfield pushing for his services. Caoimhin Kelleher (broken wrist) and Vitezslav Jaros (elbow ligament strain) are sidelined.

Meanwhile, Klopp has said Liverpool will keep their options open regarding left-back cover for Andrew Robertson.

The club are scouting the market for possibilities, while youngsters Yasser Larouci and Adam Lewis have been given the opportunity to impress during preseason.

De Gea on the brink of new deal – Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed David De Gea is on the brink of signing a new contract at Manchester United.

The Spaniard is on the verge of agreeing a new five-year deal worth in excess of £350k-a-week and Solskjaer is hopeful an announcement will be made soon.

“Hopefully we can agree with David as I’ve said a few times,” Solskjaer told a news conference at the WACA cricket ground on Tuesday.cheap nfl jerseys china nike
Solskjaer is also expecting Romelu Lukaku to be fit for the second game of the summer.5

The Belgian, who has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, missed the game against Perth Glory through injury but trained with the squad on Monday and should feature against Leeds.

Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof should also be fit after missing out against Perth. Luke Shaw limped off with a hamstring injury and may not be risked on Wednesday.
Lukaku has travelled to Australia with United despite being keen to link up with Antonio Conte at Inter.

The Serie A side are yet to submit a suitable offer for the 26-year-old and Solskjaer is confident the former Everton man can have a positive impact at Old Trafford next season if his move to the San Siro does not come off.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

“The day we start the league I’m sure everyone who’s here will give absolutely everything for Man United,” said Solskjaer.

“We want a strong team with players who give everything.

“There are always rumours speculation about Man United players but when the league starts we batten down the hatches and stay as a team.”

Sources: Man Utd want new deal for Henderson

Manchester United want Dean Henderson to sign a new contract before heading back out on loan, sources have told ESPN FC.

The highly rated goalkeeper trained with the senior squad last week but was left out of the travelling party for the preseason tour ahead of a potential return to Sheffield United.

The England under-21 international has a year left on his deal and has been monitored by Bayern Munich and a host of Premier League clubs.cheap official nike nfl jerseys6

Henderson impressed at Sheffield United last season making 46 appearances after being named in the League One team of the year in 2018 when he helped Shrewsbury to the playoff final.

United have sent another young goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara on loan to League One Burton Albion. The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Macclesfield.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to hold his first news conference of the summer in Perth on Wednesday.

Players and staff arrived in Australia on Monday ahead of their first preseason game against Perth Glory on Saturday.
