Liverpool To Sign Karim Adeyemi In January

Published

on

Liverpool are supposedly in pole position to sign Red Bull Salzburg starlet Karim Adeyemi in the January transfer window.

The former Bayern Munich youth product arrived in Austria in the summer of 2018 and impressed in the 2020-21 top flight, banking seven goals and nine assists from 29 appearances.

Adeyemi also won his side three penalties during their 1-1 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek, and the 19-year-old has understandably attracted glances from elsewhere.

According to the Daily Express, Liverpool are planning to make an offer for Adeyemi in January, with Jurgen Klopp aiming to strike a winter deal following the serious injury to Harvey Elliott.

However, Barcelona are also rumoured to be monitoring developments surrounding Adeyemi, whose contract with Salzburg does not expire until the summer of 2024.

The teenager already boasts seven goals and two assists from 11 games in all competitions this season, and he netted on his Germany debut against Armenia in World Cup qualifying earlier this month.

You’re Nothing Without Mane, Salah, Senegal’s Cisse Blasts Klopp Over AFCON Comment

Published

on

Senegal coach, Aliou Cisse, has slammed Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, over his comments on the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Cisse suggested that Klopp is nothing without Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in his Liverpool squad, adding that the German owed his success to players from Africa.

Last month, Klopp caused a stir as he described the AFCON as a ‘small tournament’ after Liverpool’s Premier League 4-0 victory against Arsenal.

Asked if he was relieved there was no international break until March next year, Klopp replied: “I have heard that so often that there is no international break until March.

“In January, there Is a little tournament in Africa, I just want to say, and I think Asia is playing games too, South America as well, great, can’t wait.”

Liverpool are set to lose some of their players, including Salah, Mane and Naby Keita for the AFCON 2021 tournament, which runs from January 9 to February 6, 2022.

While Klopp subsequently backtracked, Cisse, who played in the Premier League with Birmingham City and Portsmouth, felt the Reds boss had shown a lack of respect for the AFCON, adding that he doesn’t respect him.

“Who does he [Jurgen Klopp] think he’s? I manage Senegal and my players play for Klopp at Liverpool,” Cisse told broadcaster iTV Senegal.

“I respect Liverpool but not Klopp who undermines African football events. He’s where he is today because of African footballers.

“He was losing every final until Salah, Mane, Matip came to his rescue to win his first-ever major European final.”

Meanwhile, Speaking after Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Porto in the Champions League last week, Klopp clarified his comments had been misinterpreted.

“I didn’t mean it like that. I don’t know why you understand it like that,” Klopp told a journalist, who had suggested his comments had offended African players and fans.

“It is not even close to the idea in my mind that I want to talk about AFCON as a little tournament, or the continent of Africa like a little continent, not at all.

“What I meant is, because people said, and if you watch the full press conference, if you wanted to understand it in the right way you could have understood it in the right way.”

He added, “There is still a tournament. A big one. We lose our best players to the Africa Cup of Nations.

“I’m not a native speaker, but if you want to understand me wrong you can do that all the time. I know that I would never think like this.”

Ibrahimovic Labels Man United Club With “Small Mentality”

Published

on

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has slammed former club Manchester United as a club with a “small mentality” in his upcoming autobiography.

Ibrahimovic represented United for 20 months and was part of the most recent Red Devils side to win silverware, helping them to the EFL Cup and the Europa League in 2016/17, under Jose Mourinho.

The club also finished sixth in the Premier League that season as the post-Alex Ferguson slump continued but Ibrahimovic scored 17 goals in 28 top flight appearances.

It appears that United didn’t live up to his standards off the pitch either, as the 40-year-old explains in his new book Adrenaline.

“One thing surprised me: everyone thinks of United as a top club, one of the richest and most powerful in the world and seen from the outside it looked that way to me,” he writes.

“But once I was there I found a small, closed mentality.”

Offering up an example, Ibrahimovic recalls taking a fruit juice from a hotel mini-bar ahead of a game, before realizing that United had charged him for it.

“One day I was in the hotel with the team before a game. I got thirsty so I opened the mini-bar and had a fruit juice,” he says.

“We played and then went home. Some time went by. My pay slip arrives. Normally I don’t look at it. I only do so at the end of the year to see what’s come in and what’s gone out. But that time, I don’t know why, I was curious and realised they’d taken a pound off my monthly wage.

“I called the team manager: ‘Excuse me, why have they taken a pound off my salary.’ The team manager had a look and told me: ‘It was the fruit juice from the mini-bar.’ ‘Are you kidding, seriously?’ ‘No, I’m not. Here, if you order something you have to pay for it.’ ‘Sure, but I didn’t go to the hotel on my own accord. I wasn’t on holiday. It was my work place. I was there for Manchester. If I have to play and I’m thirsty, I have to drink. I can’t go on the pitch dehydrated.’

“Can you believe it? A quid? Something like that would never happen in Italy. These are the details that make a difference and earn the respect of the players.”

Man United 1-0 Crystal Palace: Late Strike From Fred Gets Rangnick’s Reign Off To Winning Start

Published

on

Fred’s brilliant second-half strike was enough to give Man United a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and Ralf Rangnick victory in his first match in charge.

It looked like it could be a frustrating afternoon for the home side, as it remained goalless deep into the match and United seemingly appearing to tire.

But with 77 minutes on the clock, Fred broke the deadlock and proved to be the decisive moment in the match.

United were bright in the early stages, setting up in a 4-2-2-2 formation.

Cristiano Ronaldo fired over from a free-kick, before he headed over the bar and then saw a left-footed strike comfortably saved after good work from Marcus Rashford.
