Louis van Gaal is the man that all or at least the majority of the blame of Manchester United’s recent downfall is being placed upon and the situation in Old Trafford is getting so intense that the Dutchman has already stated that if things don’t change soon and positive results start to emerge, then there is a possibility of him resigning from his managerial position in the Premier League club.
Former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is no longer being considered as one of the candidates to take over the Denmark national team.
The 51-year-old is regarded as one of the outstanding candidates available for the Danish national team. Laudrup enjoyed a remarkable playing career in which he represented the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. He has been less successful as a manager but not by a considerable margin. He has been in charge of several clubs in Spain, England, and even outside the top leagues in Europe.
New Chelsea signing Abdul Baba Rahman has revealed that he spoke extensively with Ghanaian international Michael Essien before making the move to Stamford Bridge.
Rahman has been rated as some of the brightest prospects in world football. It was not surprising that the London outfit decided to splash more than £ 20 million on the youngster. At just 21 years of age, he is not expected to go straight into the first-team. Instead, he will be competing for a first-team spot alongside Cesar Azpilicueta, who is naturally a right back.
Manchester United showed tremendous potential to get back to their former heights towards the end of last season.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville says that Manchester United certainly need Michael Carrick back as soon as possible.
The England international has been a major reason behind the form revival seen under Louis van Gaal in 2015. However, two back-to-back defeats – against Chelsea and Everton – have managed to put the club back in the race for the top four. They could have extended their lead over Liverpool to a healthy seven points, but as it is the Reds can reduce it to just four with four games remaining. The defeats has come at a time when Carrick has been absent from the team.
England international Michael Carrick has issued a rallying cry to the Manchester United supporters by saying that the players will not allow the club’s season to derail after a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Once regarded as a future star, it is reported that Manchester United could consider cancelling the contract of Anderson.
Manchester United managed to get their third consecutive victory in the Premier League after a 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.
Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has stated that he is confident that the likes of Michael Carrick can lead the club going into the new era under Louis van Gaal. The 13 time Premier league champions are widely expected to return to their best under Van Gaal, who has the experience of managing a top club unlike his predecessor David Moyes. The Dutchman, though, has been delaying the decision to name his new captain, as he wants to take a good look at the players. The decision is expected to come just a few days before the start of the campaign.
Manchester United have been dealt a major blow with the news that midfielder Michael Carrick could be out for the first few months of the season. It was the first day of pre-season training at United, but Carrick suffered an ankle injury that could keep him out of action for up to 10 weeks. New manager Louis van Gaal, who had just arrived for his first day of training, confirmed the news. United, though, are likely to be too worried about the situation since they are expected to be quite active in the transfer window – especially for midfielders.
