first_imgKlopp: A new deal? I need to win titles for Liverpool firstby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reluctant to discuss the future beyond his current contract.Klopp’s present deal runs to 2022.He said, “I don’t want to think that far ahead. If you write that already, a lot of people will speak. Everything is good at the moment, but still, ‘Klopp didn’t win anything’.”I haven’t won anything so that’s part of the truth, we don’t have to think about 2022, it’s a long way to go. In the summer, there will be people who say it’s the best time for me to go if we win something because we will never win anything again, there will be other people who say I have to go if we don’t win anything.”As long as we all enjoy the ride here, and I mean all – from the owners, the players to the supporters, to everyone around the club – we can try it and try it, but at the moment if one of those groups isn’t happy any more, then we shouldn’t stretch it and say ‘come on, try to do it’.”It’s a good time, and 2022 is a long time so I don’t have to think about it hopefully, everything will be fine and then we can think about that.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Solskjaer makes best start in Man Utd history

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer has equalled the record for the most successful start of any Manchester United manager in history after winning his first five league games in charge.The Norwegian matched Sir Matt Busby’s record of five consecutive wins in the top flight when his side beat Tottenham at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.Solskjaer took over in December following the sacking of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, although he is currently set to leave United at the end of the season with Gareth Southgate, Diego Simeone and Mauricio Pochettino among the front-runners for the permanent job. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Premier League victories against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Newcastle, as well as a FA Cup third-round win at home to Reading, have seen Solskjaer’s stock rise, and the win over Spurs is his best result yet.The fact the Red Devils beat Pochettino’s side made the win even more poignant given the Argentine’s strong links to the job. United’s players have shown renewed energy levels and enthusiasm under Solskjaer after they had grown weary with the leadership of Mourinho. Paul Pogba in particular had had a public rift with the Portuguese, but has shown excellent form since being given a leading role by his new boss and set up Rashford against Tottenham with a stunning pass that dissected the Spurs defence. Rashford himself has also excelled after being chosen ahead of Romelu Lukaku to lead the line for the Reds and has now scored four goals in five Premier League games since Solskjaer’s appointment; compared to just three under Mourinho prior to the Portuguese manager’s sacking.Securing a clean sheet was also a considerable achievement given Spurs’ attacking threat from forwards such as Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.It means the Reds have kept three clean sheets in a row, and they have David de Gea to thank for that after the keeper made 11 saves in the second half – more than any keeper has made in an entire Premier League game this season. Although United have not improved their league position since the Norwegian’s appointment, they have now drawn level with fifth-placed Arsenal on points which means they have bridged the eight-point gap that existed when Solskjaer took over.  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more
