Former Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted losing the joy of football while he was at Old Trafford.
The French star left the club during the winter window and he seems to be finding his feet again at Everton under manager Ronaldo Koeman.
Schneiderlin made a big-money move to United from Southampton. He started well under Coach Louis van Gaal but he was dropped outright under Coach Jose Mourinho – a move than almost wrecked his career. He revealed that his love for the game dwindled as he rarely played until the move of his former boss Koeman. Continue reading SCHNEIDERLIN LOST ‘JOY OF FOOTBALL’ AT OT
Louis van Gaal was dismissed from Stretford End in 23 May, 2016 and within 72 hours replaced with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The self acclaimed Special One – or is it Happy One? – has of recent come under series of attacks from fans and trolls alike for his team’s poor start to the 2016/2017 Premier League season – their worst ever in the Premier League era).
Manchester united midfielder Marouane Fellaini offered some comparison with Louis and Jose’s managerial styles:
“Louis van Gaal is stricter. Mourinho is strict, but not like Van Gaal,” said the Belgian international.
“It is funnier with Mourinho, the training changes all the time. It is not a routine. Van Gaal had his philosophy and he was strict but he was very different.” he added.
Fellaini however believes that Mourinho is the right man to take the Red Devils back to the perch Sir Alex Ferguson worked so hard to knock Liverpool off and place Manchester United on.
“I think Mourinho is the right manager. He has a lot of experience and he knows what he can do but you have to give him time as well so I’m sure the victories will come.” Continue reading MAROUANE FELLAINI BACKS MOURINHO
Keith Heckett reckons the Football Association hasn’t helped itself or Anthony Taylor by sending the latter to referee at Merseyside this weekend.
The issue is that Manchester is the place of Taylor’s birth and it’s the place he has been at all his life so far and it’s pretty rare for an out and out Manchester lad, especially the one who has grown up through the nineties as Taylor has, not to be connected with United at heart.
Even Taylor’s house is situated only at a 5 or 10-minute drive from the home ground of United. So, for all these reasons, Liverpool faithful feel that their arch rivals visiting them in the weekend are already at advantage as they will have one of their own presiding over the match in the form of Taylor.
As per Heckett, now that people have developed a perception about Taylor, he would be scrutinized at every second of the match and he can’t afford even one little mistake anywhere, otherwise it will straightaway be linked to his emotional closeness to the visiting side
