It’s Carabao Cup Or Nothing, Klopp Insists

Published

on

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says victory at Arsenal is proof how much they take seriously the Carabao Cup.

The Reds are into the final against Chelsea after the 2-0 second-leg semifinal win in London.

Afterwards, Klopp denied that the League Cup has never mattered to him during his time at the club.

“No, it is not true,” Klopp said. “The situation is always around what time of the year is it? Who is available? How many games have they played?

“I cannot just pick a team by looking at the full squad on paper and just pick an 11 for the game based on that.

“We have to consider a lot of things and we always did that, but you need a lot of luck in certain times and specific moments.

“We have never had that and we have always had really tricky draws on top of that early on and in games we could not line up a Premier League team [in the Cup] three days before [a Premier League game].

“It hasn’t always been unlucky but it is not always the easiest draw. So it is all good, we want to go for everything.

“It doesn’t mean we have won this already but we will be there at the end of February but unfortunately the opponent will as well.”

I’ve No Plan To Leave Tottenham, Says Conte

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, has decided to stay at the club ahead of next season, after guiding them back into the Champions League.

Spurs thrashed Norwich 5-0 on the final day of the Premier League to pip rivals Arsenal to fourth spot.

However, Conte refused to commit his future to the club after that match.

The Italian tactician held talks with managing director Fabio Paratici in Turin on Friday.

It is believed the pair discussed summer transfer targets and Conte has now opted to remain at Tottenham, according to The Telegraph.

Having replaced Nuno Espirito Santo last November, the 52-year-old won 17 of his 28 league games in charge.

UCL Final: McManaman Tips Real Madrid To Beat Liverpool

Published

on

Former Liverpool star, Steve McManaman, has insisted that the club’s management are doing a fantastic job, saying that everything they touch turns to gold at the moment.

McManaman said this while giving his verdict on Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday night in Paris.

The 50-year-old, who played for Liverpool and Real Madrid in the past, insisted that the Reds are an impossible team to play against when they are on it.

According to him, he wants Liverpool to be successful as they face Real Madrid at the Stade de France.

“I’m in a no-win, no-lose situation,” McManaman told DW. “I have got friends in both camps, and all these years on, Real Madrid still have the same kitman and a lot of the same physios working there.

“So to see these types of people is an incredible thing that you want them to do well.

“But I still work at the Liverpool Academy and I want Liverpool to be successful – that goes without saying.”

He added, “Liverpool are an impossible team to play against when they’re on it – and they’re on it all the time it seems.

“Even in finals that have gone to extra time, they just always seem to find a way. And they haven’t had an easy run this year, drawn into a group with AC Milan, Atletico Madrid and Porto – they steamrolled the group – and then beating the likes of Inter Milan too.

“Klopp has done an exceptional job with the team. I think the staff around Klopp are doing an amazing job. And also the people upstairs who were buying and selling the players – everything they touch seems to turn to gold at this moment.”

Why Salah, Mane Must Leave Liverpool, Agbonlahor Speaks

Published

on

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been told to leave Liverpool if the club fail to meet their demands.

Aston Villa legend, Gabriel Agbonlahor, wonders why Liverpool are finding it difficult to tie up the two African stars while players they are far better than are receiving the same pay at other clubs.

He argued that if Kevin de Bruyne is getting a new deal and higher pay at Manchester City, who are also ready to pay new signing Erling Haaland his fat wages, and even Jadon Sancho at Manchester United then Mane and Salah deserve more.

He told talkSPORT, “They’re going to want their value, Salah and Mane, and if Liverpool aren’t willing to give them that…

“If you don’t, they’ll move on and that’s what Mane’s probably thinking.

“Why should they stay?”

Salah and Mane have scored more than 275 goals for Liverpool between them but are facing an uncertain future at the club with their respective contracts set to expire next summer.

Mane could be set to play his last match for Liverpool in the Champions League final as the 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a summer move to Bayern Munich.
