  • IN ROD WE TRUST

    James Rodriguez's poor relationship with Carlos Queiroz was reportedly at the centre of the decision to sack the Colombia coach.

    Earlier this week, the former Manchester United assistant left the South American side after a poor start to World Cup qualification.

    Local media reports, cited by Marca, outline one incident which allegedly infuriated Everton star Rodriguez.

    A friendly with Ecuador in November 2019 saw Brighton midfielder Steven Alzate don the No10 shirt.

    The number had been reserved for star man Rodriguez, who was unavailable for the fixture.

    Giving away the shirt was reportedly seen as a huge sign of disrespect by Queiroz.

  • MAUR TO SEE

    French football expert Julien Laurens believes Mauricio Pochettino has a move to Manchester United in the 'back of his mind'.

    He told talkSPORT: "Pochettino has been very clever in the way that he’s waiting.

    He could have gone back to management very early on but he waited. He really wanted to get the right project and the right club.

    “But he has really good ties with PSG, he was their player, their captain, and he loves Paris as a city and a football club. That could be very interesting, I think it’s a very attractive club for any manager.

    “I think Manchester United is still in the back of his mind, because maybe Ole Gunnar Solkskjaer has lasted longer than all of us expected, but certainly he [Pochettino] would be high on their list.”

  • ALL OR NOTHING

    Jose Mourinho has admitted it is not up to him who stays or goes at Tottenham amid rumours that former United target Dele Alli could leave the club in January.

    The midfielder has played just 21 minutes of Premier League football since being hauled off at half-time of the opening day defeat to Everton.

    On his future, Mourinho, 57, said: "One thing is me understanding the players, another thing is the players’ situation.

    “I don’t make decisions about selling a, b or c, or letting d, e or f go on loan.

    “I am responsible for the players that belong to my squad and are working with me.

    "The ones that are not playing enough time in their minds, in their ambitions, they have only one thing to do, which is to use the time they play to show me they are better than the ones having more minutes.

    "There is no secret to that."

  • BOC OF THE NET

    Former Manchester United star Carlos Tevez paid an emotional tribute to the 'King of Kings' Diego Maradona after scoring for Boca Juniors.

    Wednesday night's Copa Libertadores clash with Internacional was won by the Argentine's clinical finish.

    After scoring on the hour-mark, the 36-year-old unveiled a vintage Boca kit bearing the legend's No10.

  • RON AND ONLY

    Cristiano Ronaldo hit an incredible 750th career goal as Juventus beat Dynamo Kiev.

    The Portuguese superstar, 35, reached the landmark in his 1,026th professional game.

  • FREDDY SET GO

    Fred has taken to Instagram following his red card in Manchester United's 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

    The midfielder wrote: "It wasn't the best night, but we kept working for the best. Always strong mind. We are United!"

  • WILL HE GO?

    Newcastle are reportedly targeting Manchester United star Brandon Williams for a January swoop following Alex Telles' arrival.

    According to reports, the 20-year-old is being closely monitored by the Magpies with the Red Devils likely to make him available on a loan move.

    ChronicleLive claim that 'any offer' from Steve Bruce's side for Williams would be taken seriously by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

  • BAIL OUT

    Premier League clubs have finally agreed a bail out deal for the lower leagues.

    After months of wrangling, the 20 top flight clubs have unanimously agreed to change the terms of their initial £50m offer to Leagues One and Two.

    And they have also formally agreed to a £200m loan package for Championship clubs suffering financially as a result of the Covid crisis.

    EFL clubs turned down the first offer which was solely to the lower two tiers.

    They then agreed in principle to the full offer, which included the Championship money, but urged the Prem to alter the terms.

    And now that has happened, bringing to an end a long-running dispute which saw the Government turning on football and accusing the Prem of failing to do its duty.

  • FRENCH FANCIED

    Manchester United managerial target Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to replace under-fire PSG boss Thomas Tuchel because he 'loves Paris'.

    The 48-year-old - who was Paris Saint-Germain's skipper during his spell at the Ligue 1 side - has been out of a job since being sacked by Spurs last November.

    And it has been claimed that he would welcome a move back to France to take charge of Les Parisiens.

    According to talkSPORT, German gaffer Tuchel is under pressure at PSG.

  • WISH YOU WERE HERR

    Manchester United fans blasted former star Ander Herrera for diving after the Paris Saint-Germain tweeted he wished there were fans at Wednesday's clash.

    The Spanish midfielder's post backfired spectacularly as supporters were incensed at his theatrics that saw Fred shown a second yellow card in the second half.

  • JACK POT

    Aston Villa have reportedly slapped a £100million asking price on Jack Grealish to fend off interest from Manchester United and City.

    The Citizens are believed to have made the 25-year-old their No1 target following the England international's stunning start to the season.

    And it has been claimed that the Red Devils remain keen on bringing the player to Old Trafford.

    United were heavily linked with a move for the Villans skipper in the summer, but he instead penned a new five-year contract in the Midlands.

    It is understood the boyhood Villa fan is not thinking about leaving the club, but that hasn't stopped Dean Smith's men from putting a price on him.

    According to the Telegraph, potential suitors would have to fork out a British record £100m to prise Grealish away from Villa.

  • SERGIO RAM-OFF

    Sergio Ramos is reportedly considering QUITTING Real Madrid and heading to the Premier League.

    The centre-half is out of contract at the end of the season with talks continuing over his future.

    But according to Onda Cero, Ramos is ‘thinking about leaving’ and has ‘proposals from Italy and England’.

  • ILL BEHAVIOUR

    The Premier League will reject any attempts to provide players with a coronavirus vaccine before the general population.

    It has been confirmed that the UK is the first country in the world to give a Covid vaccine the green light.

    Millions of Brits will soon receive it - in line with the Government's pledge to get the most vulnerable as soon as possible.

    But the Telegraph claim that Premier League bosses do not expect the players to skip the queue.

    The top-flight officials believe that the vaccine should be administered to people at risk first.

    Care home residents, those over 80 years old and health and social care staff will be among the first to receive the jab.

    League bosses would reportedly dismiss calls for players to have special access to the vacine.

  • FER REAL?

    Rio Ferdinand claimed Robbie Savage ended up the floor when the pair clashed in the tunnel as players.

    But the ex-Blackburn Rovers star recalled a different version of events and insisted Ferdinand 'knows the real story'.

    Savage told BT Sport: "Mate he's got in there first. Different story.

    "I just text him and said 'the tunnel line is coming, I'm going to get you'. Listen, different version of events, he knows the real story.

    "That's why he goes to he gym so often now."

  • WHAT A SAVAGE

    Rio Ferdinand claimed Robbie Savage ended up the floor when the pair clashed in the tunnel as players.

    He told BT Sport: "I think what was interesting was that fracas going into the tunnel.

    "I think Robbie when he comes back on commentary he'll be reminded that's what happened to him when I was in the tunnel with him.

    "He barged me on the way off against Blackburn. Bit of needle.

    "I ran after him into the tunnel and before he knew it he was on the floor. He couldn't run away he was on the floor."

  • FIGHTING TALK

    Rio Ferdinand claimed Robbie Savage ended up floored when the pair clashed in the tunnel as players.

    But the ex-Blackburn Rovers star recalled a different version of events and insisted Ferdinand 'knows the real story'.

    The former rivals now work in perfect harmony as pundits for BT Sport and recalled their spat last night while covering Manchester United's 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

    Tempers boiled over during the game as Fred escaped a red card while Neymar and Scott McTominay squared off, with the confrontations continuing in the tunnel.

    Ferdinand recalled: "I think what was interesting was that fracas going into the tunnel.

    "I think Robbie when he comes back on commentary he'll be reminded that's what happened to him when I was in the tunnel with him.

    "He barged me on the way off against Blackburn. Bit of needle.

    "I ran after him into the tunnel and before he knew it he was on the floor. He couldn't run away; he was on the floor."

    Ferdinand insisted he came out on top - but Savage was quick to set him straight.

    Then Savage hit back: "Mate he's got in there first. Different story.

    "I just texted him and said 'the tunnel line is coming, I'm going to get you'. Listen, different version of events, he knows the real story.

    "That's why he goes to the gym so often now."

  • OLE’S ADMISSION

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he perhaps got it wrong by not taking off Fred.

    The midfielder was booked in the first half and went on to get himself sent-off as the Red Devils fell to a 3-1 home defeat to PSG last night.

    Here’s what the boss had to say afterwards:

  • 'IT'S PATHETIC'

    MICHAEL OWEN has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to banish Fred from Manchester United.

    The Brazilian was sent-off as the Red Devils fell to a 3-1 home defeat at Old Trafford last night.

    The midfielder, 27, could have seen red after clashing with Leandro Paredes and pushing his head towards him during the first half.

    Luckily, he only received a yellow, but he was sent off later in the match for a foul on former United star Ander Herrera.

    Now another ex-United man has hit out at Fred.

    Owen said: “It [the clash with Paredes] was a red card.

    “You’re a grown man, you don’t need to do a petulant thing like that to put your team at risk.

    “If I was a manager, and one of my players did that, he would never play for me again. It’s pathetic. 

    “Overall you have to blame Fred but also Solskjaer. The manager has to protect him and the team in that situation so they’re both to blame.”

  • GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    A very disappointing result last night as the United lost 3-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

    A win would have guaranteed their qualification from Group H but it’s now wide open after RB Leipzig beat Istanbul Basaksehir 4-3 in Turkey.

    Neymar scored the first and last goals at Old Trafford and plenty happened in between.

    The Brazilian slotted one home from a tight angle with just six minutes on the clock.

    Marcus Rashford levelled the scores just past the half-hour mark thanks to a huge deflection off Danilo.

    But the main talking point of the first-half as the teams went in level was Fred escaping a red card for a clear headbutt.

    The ref missed it but was told to have a look at the pitch-side monitor by VAR.

    And bizarrely, after having a look, decided to only brandish a yellow.

    But after a couple of lucky escapes, the midfielder rode his luck once too many times on 70 minutes when he lunged into a slide tackle after a poor first touch.

    Replays appeared to show he won the ball but he still gave the ref a decision to make.

    The red compounded an awful two minutes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men who had conceded just seconds before when Marquinhos survived a VAR check for offside and stabbed home from close range.

    Anthony Martial missed an absolute sitter before Edinson Cavani hit the bar – both of which would have changed the game if they had gone in.

    But as United chased an equaliser, the French champions capitalised in the 91st minute when Neymar swept home from six yards.

    After the game, Solskjaer said: “It was a very good game which deserved fans. With a bit more clinical finishing we should have finished the game. They were there for the taking [at one stage].

    "We had some big chances. The difference when you get to the big games is the clinical moments.

    "If Marquinhos had bigger studs on he'd have been offside. It's marginal. You can't really put your finger on the deciding factors."

    Rashford appeared to have another problem with his shoulder which is one to look out for today after he was subbed off last night.

  • 'HE WAS LUCKY'

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Fred was lucky not to get sent off for his headbutt in the first half tonight.

    Speaking after the game, he said: "Fred shouldn't put his head towards him [in the first half].

    "I don't think he touched him. He was a bit lucky to stay on."

    Solskjaer was widely criticised for not taking the Brazilian off before he eventually got sent off.

    And the Norwegian admitted he considered it. When asked he said: "Yeah… Fred has played really well. We spoke about staying calm and on your feet.

    "The second yellow card was nowhere near a foul. Ander [Herrera] knows that."

  • COULD HAVE GUN EITHER WAY

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was reasonably pleased with his team's performance despite their 3-1 home defeat to Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League.

    Solskjaer said: “It was a very good game which deserved fans. With a bit more clinical finishing we should have finished the game. They were there for the taking [at one stage].

    "We had some big chances. The difference when you get to the big games is the clinical moments.

    "If Marquinhos had bigger studs on he'd have been offside. It's marginal. You can't really put your finger on the deciding factors."
