Manchester United star player Marcos Rojo made his first-team return on Wednesday at Basel, and manager Jose Mourinho has heaped lots of praises on him for his performance in the game that eventually ended 1-0.

Although the red devils dominated the game and were the better side in Switzerland, they paid the price for missing lots of opportunities when the host club grabbed a late winner that earned them the full point.

Marcos Rojo made his first start for his side since picking a long-term injury back in April, and he was able to play on Wednesday without difficulties at Basel.

The talented player was very much impressive throughout the game and even hit Basel’s post with a strong shot from 35 yards in the first half.

And while manager Jose Mourinho is not happy with his attacking players for not converting their numerous chances into goals, the Portuguese tactician had lots of praise for Marco.

“[Rojo] played very well” Jose said.

The manager also suggests he won’t be rushing the Argentine defender back into regular first-team action, and he might be rested this Saturday as Man United will clash with Brighton in the premier league.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also played for some minutes on Wednesday after replacing Anthony Martial in the second half. The Swede legend became the first and only player who represented seven different clubs in the Champions League on Wednesday

Managed by Reds legend, Steven Gerrard, Rangers are hopeful that a deal can be influenced by the relationship between both clubs owing to their manager.

The likes of Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and English Premier League side Wolves have been leading in the race for Adam Lallana but from indications, they could be beaten by Rangers who have got a good relationship with Liverpool in the past.

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old has got a contract with the Reds until 2020 with a release clause of £20 million.

Napoli were also not alone in the clubs that attempted to seal the player from Liverpool’s sight as Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona were also understood to be interested in the star player.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted that Naby Keita has transformed to become a different and better player from what he used to be when plying his trade in Germany stressing that missing out on the player is a big regret for him and his former side.

Philippe Coutinho

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is unhappy with his men’s performance in their defeat to Arsenal last night.

The Blues failed to register a single shot on target in the first half of the game and that was unacceptable to Sarri who ‘blast’ his players after the game.

As a result of the Blues unimpressive display against the Gunners at Emirates Stadium, Sarri has reportedly turned his attention to Barcelona playmaker Phillipe Coutinho.

According to goal.com via The Express, the Italian has called on Abramovich to move for the Catalan’s want-away player.

The highly-regarded media outlet revealed that the Israeli millionaire is now ready to spend £100m on the Selecao playmaker before the end of the current transfer market.

The Brazilian international left Anfield for Camp Nou a year ago and he had a blistering start to life in the Spanish League.

He seamlessly settled down at Camp Nou as he assisted some goals and he also scored some beautiful and eye-catching goals.

However, the 26-year-old couldn’t maintain the tempo and he has fallen out of favour under Ernesto Valverde.

The Argentine manager preferred using Ousmane Dembele in his starting XI and the young Frenchman is doing great at the moment.

Dembele’s fine form means the Brazilian will continue to be a bit-part player at Camp and reports claimed he could be returning back to EPL this month.

Chelsea will have contend with Manchester United for his services. The Red Devils had earlier shown interest in Coutinho and they are doing everything to capture his signature in the January window.

Chelsea still remain in the fourth position despite their 2-0 defeat to the Gunners, however, the gap between both teams is now reduced to three points.

He, however, hinted that a transfer decision could only be made if an emergency situation arises knowing that he needs a big squad to be able to maintain the lead until the end of the season.

It was expected that the emergency situation would be made known with the injury crisis that hit the team with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip out of the team due to injury but the German boss made it clear that he will not rush to the market.

But the latest report claims that the former Borussia Dortmund boss is now willing to add a ‘readily available’ player who can also play as a central defender.

It is also reported that the Merseyside team are open to a loan move as they might not necessarily secure a big addition.
