WATCH: Liverpool boss Klopp fumes ‘how did Kompany not get sent off?!’by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City captain Vincent Kompany stands by his tackle on Mohamed Salah in victory over Liverpool.There’s claims the Belgian should’ve seen red for the challenge.But he says: “No I thought it was a great challenge. Was it not? Haha.”On the pitch I felt I got the ball, a bit of the man, I didn’t try to injure him at all. It was that or either let him go through on goal. The decision was made very quickly in my head.”But Reds boss Jurgen Klopp responded: “I really like Vincent Kompany but how on Earth is that not a red card? He is last man and he goes in. If he hits Mo more he is out for the season.”Kompany deserved a red card tbh. #MCILIVpic.twitter.com/gQxU8ruo5w— skyerenaee (@SkyeRenaee) January 3, 2019 About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Max Allegri has explained some of the changes in his starting lineup as Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa and Juan Cuadrado were all dropped, but Juventus won the game 2-0.There was a huge surprise when the starting lineup was announced, but manager Allegri offered an explanation after the game. Football Italia reports.“It was a different game to Chievo, but above all at the start we were a little hasty. The danger today was to get swept up in the enthusiasm of the stadium for Cristiano Ronaldo’s first at the Stadium and we should’ve had more patience,” Allegri said.“Without Dybala, it becomes more difficult to pass between the lines, but after a while we defended well and did far better in the second half.“I’m happy with the performance, it was our first head-to-head with one of the other big clubs and it went well.“At times we fall asleep, at others we get frenetic, whereas we need more balance throughout. The spaces did open up after a while and we should’ve accelerated when the opponents were more fatigued.“Once again, the substitutions were very important with Douglas Costa, Emre Can and Rodrigo Bentancur making an impact off the bench.Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“We have to improve our tempo, our control and the way we read the game, but the centre-backs did a good job against Lazio’s dangerous counter-attacks.“It’s one game per week in the first three rounds, but from September 15 onwards there will be midweek Champions League games too and naturally we’ll need everyone. The important thing is that those who come off the bench contribute in the right way.“I have a very strong squad and have to evaluate everyone. We needed these characteristics in midfield today, but I could take a different approach to Parma.“Dybala connects the lines, Bernardeschi can do that too, but those who were at the World Cup arrived late to pre-season training and not everyone finds their fitness levels at the same time. Mandzukic and Matuidi have a different engine to others.“The important thing now is that I choose a starting XI with technique, balance and physicality. That doesn’t mean those on the bench are useless, but I can’t play more than 11 at a time.”
Following Leroy Sane slow start to the season, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola urged Leroy Sane to respond.The 22-year-old Sane was featured in the last campaign, where he won the PFA Young Player of the Year award with City grabbing the title. However, he is yet to start a Premier League game in 2018-19.Sane, who was snubbed in Germany’s World Cup squad in Russia had his body language questioned by team-mate Toni Kroos during the international break but City manager Guardiola has asked Sane to bounce back, adding that it was too early to judge the former Schalke attacker.“He will be so important for the club. It’s a challenge for him and not just him – everybody,” Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City’s clash against Fulham as quoted by FourFourTwo.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“The season will be judged in 11 months – not three weeks. He’s a nice guy and I don’t have any bad words about him.“He has to respond in the right way. He’s so competitive and professional. Sometimes, for some players, it’s that way [a slow start]. Some players at the end of the season go down.“We cannot forget he is 22 years old. Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Raz [Raheem Sterling] – the other ones are young – and he will grow up. The most important thing is to try to help him.”
Juventus forward Paulo Dybala claims he is currently focused on his Juventus career despite suggesting he can ‘never say never’ to a move away in the future.Numerous reports have linked the Argentine with a move abroad after falling down the pecking order under Allegri following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival from Real Madrid.In response to the speculation, he told Canal+ and cited on Football Italia: “It’s hard to know what the future holds.“A player only knows where he’s playing today, but he doesn’t know where he’ll be tomorrow.Report: No deadline day move for Dybala George Patchias – September 2, 2019 There will be no last-minute transfer of Paulo Dybala from Juventus this summer.According to Sky Sports and its associates in Italy, the player is…“Still, I feel very good at Juventus and I’m where I’ve always wanted to play. I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m fine here.“Joining a French team? You can never say never, but it’s not in my plans right now.”Dybala still remains a key component in the squad as they fight for honours on three fronts especially in the quest to end their Champions League hoodoo.
