Mourinho has decided where this Man Utd star will play next season: report

Mourinho has decided where this Man Utd star will play next season: report

Sports
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is set for one hell of a competition next season in his attempt to win a consistent place in the Manchester United starting XI. The Dutch star was loaned out to Crystal Palace this Premier League campaign as Jose Mourinho wished to get him the game time he deserved. There’s no better experience than staying in the same division and he’s pretty much set up to return straight into the first team next season with a better chance of winning his place at the club. The question is where will Fosu-Mensah play? A quite stereotypically versatile footballer from the Netherland, he can play as a right-back, centre-back, defensive midfielder and central midfielder. For the London club though he’s mainly operated in their defence with the appearance stats leaning ...

On This Day in Football: Ireland play their first ever international, England stun Spain - originally posted on Sportslens.com On this day in 1882, Ireland played their first ever international game of football. Unfortunately, it was a 13-0 hammering by the English. The game took place at Bloomfield Park in Belfast two years after the formation of the Irish Football Association. Ireland became the fourth country after England, Scotland and Wales to field an international side. The Irish starting XI included 15-year-old Samuel Johnston who held the record for being the youngest international debutant in the world until it was broken by Uruguay’s Aníbal Zapicán Falcao in 1908. England opened the scoring through Howard Vaughton who went on to score five in the game. Arthu...

Highly rated Everton player does not wish to play for the club next season - originally posted on Sportslens.com Everton striker Sandro Ramirez does not wish to play for the Premier League outfit anymore. The Spaniard joined the Toffees in the summer for a fee of £5m. However, he struggled to adapt to the demands of English football and Everton decided to loan him out to Sevilla last month. Ramirez managed to score just once in 15 games for Everton during his time at the club. It seems that the player is determined to end his nightmare spell at Goodison Park at the end of this season. The Spaniard was excellent for Malaga last year and the former Everton manager Ronald Koeman had high hopes when he signed Ramirez. It will be interesting to see whether Ramirez can rediscover his form...
Pundit explains why Paul Pogba should play at No.10

Pundit explains why Paul Pogba should play at No.10

Sports
Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has encouraged Jose Mourinho to deploy Paul Pogba as a No.10. The Frenchman was taken off during defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United following disappointing displays in a midfield pivot – a role that clearly doesn’t suit his qualities. And debate this week has naturally centred around Pogba’s position, with some blasting the midfielder for failing to deliver whilst others have pointed the finger at Mourinho for using him incorrectly. Speaking ahead of Man United’s clash with Huddersfield Town, Parker noted that perhaps using Pogba as a No.10 would provide a solution. “The game comes very easy to Pogba and I just wonder, if long-term, he might be better suited in the number ten role, where he can ...
