Why MAN U Players were banned from signing autograph?

Manchester United have barred players from stopping to sign autographs at one of the entrances to the club’s training ground amid safety fears.

A large sign has been erected near the rear entrance to their Carrington base telling supporters that players are no longer permitted to stop in their cars due to “danger on the road”.

Large crowds of autograph hunters regularly congregate near what is a blind bend at the junction of Sinderland Lane and Birch Road, from where the training base can be accessed, and United are increasingly concerned about the threat that poses to those fans’ safety.

 

It is not uncommon for groups of as many as 50 supporters to gather in the summer holidays especially and the club have taken the decision that the situation poses too great a safety risk to be allowed to continue.
The large crowds also present issues for the local farm and residents that United are mindful of.

The newly erected sign reads:

 

“Players are not permitted to stop and sign autographs due to danger on the road. No congregating.”

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, and forward Daniel James were pictured leaning out of their cars to stop to sign autographs on Wednesday.

Fans will still be able to gather for autographs at the other entry point to Carrington on Isherwood Road but United feel they have been left with no other choice but to enforce the ban on the Birch Road side.

Solskjaer is hoping United will finally be able to call upon a settled defence this season as they bid to atone for last season’s struggles.

United have frequently been forced to chop and change at the back due to injuries and poor form in recent years but, with the arrival of right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and centre-half Harry Maguire during the summer, Solskjaer is looking forward to having a more familiar line-up in defence.

United face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Monday after an impressive 4-0 win at home to Chelsea in their opening Premier League match.

“Any successful team will have to build from the back and have a foundation to play from,” Solskjaer said. “We always say ‘you have to earn the right to win a game of football’. You earn it by defending well, you have a foundation and hopefully a settled team.

“Hopefully, we won’t have to make too many changes. Over the last few years, I’ve always had the feeling there’s been so many players with bad luck concerning injuries. Both Jose [Mourinho] and Louis [van Gaal], maybe even David [Moyes], had to chop and change the back four, especially the centre-backs. Hopefully we can get a settled line-up.”

Meanwhile, Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted he knocked back an approach for Jadon Sancho in spring but has left the door open for the England winger to potentially leave Borussia Dortmund next summer. United are thought to have been deterred from moving for Sancho this summer by Dortmund’s insistence that it would take a bid of well over £100 million for them to consider parting company with the player.

“A chief of one of the super clubs asked me back in spring if there was a chance [to sign Sancho] but I told him straight away he should forget about it and he never contacted me again,” Watzke said. “He knew I meant what I said. There aren’t many 19-year-olds with such a potential.

“He is also not a player from the region or one who would have any connection to it. When you have a player like Jadon Sancho, you must reassess the situation every single year. Everything else would not be honest. If a foreign player is not convinced that the club is right for him at the exact time, it just does not make any sense.”

MLST SPORTS:Messi overtakes Salah in race for golden shoe—(2 Minutes Read).

Lionel Messi’s hat-trick in Barcelona’s 4-2 win at Deportivo on Sunday has seen him overtake Liverpool’s Mohammad Salah in the race of the European Golden Shoe award.

 

Messi’s 41st club hat-trick helped Barca clinch the LaLiga title with four games remaining.

That puts the Argentine on 64 points, two clear of Salah, who failed to score in their 0-0 draw with Stoke City on Saturday.

 

Messi, who won last season’s European Golden Boot having scored 37 times to finish with a total of 74 points, is now in pole position for another individual title.

 

 

He has four league games remaining while Salah has two.

 

In third place is Lazio’s Ciro Immobile, just two goals behind Salah and three behind Messi; the Italian has three Serie A games remaining to make up the deficit.

 

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich is in fourth (28 goals, 56 points), while PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Inter’s Mauro Icardi have 27 goals (54 points). Tottenham striker Harry Kane is in seventh with 26 goals (52 points).

 

If Messi stays ahead of Salah, it would make him the first player to win the European Golden Shoe five times (2009/10, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2016/17).

MLST SPORTS:Arsene Wenger reveals what he will do after retirement—(3 Minutes Read).

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will take a short break from managerial duties after leaving Arsenal before deciding on his next move.

 

The 68-year-old manager made a final trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend.

 

It has been reported that Arsenal had considered offering Wenger a role behind the scenes at the Emirates, while PSG are keen for him to be their new sporting director.

 

But Wenger himself still believes he has something to offer in management, and the Frenchman said he would take a break and think about what he wants to do next.

 

Speaking to French TV station SFR after Arsenal 2-1 loss to United, Wenger said, “I have genuinely decided to take a short break in order to figure out where I go from here. It’s a complete unknown.”

 

Wenger also admitted he was still unsure about his next move though played down the possibility of remaining in the Premier League.

 

Asked if he expected to share technical area with the United boss again, Wenger said, “I don’t know, honestly.

 

“First of all he [Mourinho] will be at Manchester United next year certainly and I don’t know where I will be. I have worked at a top level for 35 years without any interruption and I think I am the only one in the world who has done that.

 

“So at the moment I am a bit in unknown territory.

 

“I don’t know where I will go from here. Will I take a break? So I would be surprised if I meet him next year.”

MLST SPORTS:Messi overtaakes Salah in race for golden shoe—(2 Minutes Read).

Lionel Messi’s hat-trick in Barcelona’s 4-2 win at Deportivo on Sunday has seen him overtake Liverpool’s Mohammad Salah in the race of the European Golden Shoe award.

 

Messi’s 41st club hat-trick helped Barca clinch the LaLiga title with four games remaining.

That puts the Argentine on 64 points, two clear of Salah, who failed to score in their 0-0 draw with Stoke City on Saturday.

 

Messi, who won last season’s European Golden Boot having scored 37 times to finish with a total of 74 points, is now in pole position for another individual title.

 

 

He has four league games remaining while Salah has two.

 

In third place is Lazio’s Ciro Immobile, just two goals behind Salah and three behind Messi; the Italian has three Serie A games remaining to make up the deficit.

 

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich is in fourth (28 goals, 56 points), while PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Inter’s Mauro Icardi have 27 goals (54 points). Tottenham striker Harry Kane is in seventh with 26 goals (52 points).

 

If Messi stays ahead of Salah, it would make him the first player to win the European Golden Shoe five times (2009/10, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2016/17).

ALEX IWOBI,KELECHI IHEANACHO HELP NIGERIA RALLY TO STUN ARGENTINA.–(4 Minutes Read).

This post was published by PA Sport.

Alex Iwobi scored twice as Nigeria fought back from two goals down to thump Argentina 4-2 in Tuesday’s friendly in Krasnodar.

 

Jorge Sampaoli’s side were without Lionel Messi for their second of two matches in Russia.

 

The Barcelona playmaker took part in a full game for the 1-0 win over 2018 World Cup hosts at the newly-refurbished Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Saturday before returning to Spain.

 

Argentina, though showed few early signs of missing their talisman as Ever Banega curled in  a free kick before Sergio Aguero made 2-0 after 36minutes.

 

However,Kelechi Iheanacho started the recovery with another well-executed free kick before half-time.

4 (1)

 

Iwobi swept in an equaliser five minutes after the restart and another from defender Brian Idowu,on his debut,swiftly turned the match around.

 

The 21-year-old Arsenal forward netted a fourth with 17minutes left to complete a remarkable comeback and leave Argentina facing more questions on the road towards next summers’finals.

 

Nigeria goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi handled the ball outside the penalty area, and Banega sent the resulting free kick into the bottom corner.

 

Nicolas Otamendi headed wide from a corner before Argentina doubled their lead in the 36th minute when Aguero guided home Cristian Paron’s cross.

 

The Super Eagles,who secured their place at the 2018 World Cup as one of the Confederation of African Football group winners,reduced the deficit just before half-time.

 

Javier Mascherano fouled Iwobi to concede a free-kick just outside the penalty area,which Iheanacho promptly clipped over the wall and into the top-right corner past diving Agustin Marchesin.

 

In stoppage-time,Argentina stopper Marchesin produced a fine reaction save from midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

 

There was a worrying moment at half time as Aguero fell dizzy and fainted.He was taken to hospital as a precaution.

 

Nigeria were level five minutes into the second half.Iheanacho turned provider as he darted into the right side of penalty area and picked out Iwobi with a cut-back towards the penalty spot, with the Arsenal front man sweeping a first time shot in the bottom left corner.

 

Before Argentina could regroup,Nigeria went ahead after 53 minutes.Iheanacho was again the creator,this time laying the ball off at the edge of the area for Idowu,who was born in Russia and plays there for Amkar Perm,to drill a low strike past Marchesin.

 

It got worse for Argentina after 73minutes when Iwobi skipped past Marcherano at the edge of the penalty area before slamming the ball into the net.

 

Ndidi nodded wide before Nigeria Keeper Francis Uzoho saved a header from Dario Benedetto,but there was no dramatic finale.
