Star player in trouble? As Man United fans call for ban after incident

Published

on

Ander Herrera

Manchester United fans are calling for Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vetonghen to face a retrospective ban for an incident involving Man United midfielder Ander Herrera.

The incident occurred during the North London side’s 2-0 victory over United at Wembley in an utterly dominant display from Mauricio Pochettino’s team.

A goal after 11 seconds from Christian Eriksen pretty much set the tone before Phil Jones put the ball through his own net in the 28th minute.

However, an incident late on has gotten many fans of the Red Devils frustrated. Video clips of the game appear to show Vertonghen grab Herrera by the throat after a tackle on the Spaniard. This sort of incident has been revisited by the FA on a few occasions this season, with United’s Ashley Young serving a 3-match ban earlier in the season for elbowing Southampton’s Dusan Tadic even though it was missed by the referee.

This new incident was also missed by centre referee on the night, Andre Marriner but the silence so far from the press and the FA is what has infuriated many Man United fans, with a number of said fans airing their opinions on social media.

It is however not too late for action to be taken and the Belgian could still face retrospective action for his actions.

Both teams return to action this week when Man United host Huddersfield town and Tottenham face Liverpool at Anfield.

Mario Hermoso

3-time Premier League winners Arsenal are ruminating on a potential move for Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso ahead of the upcoming transfer window in the New Year.

The 23-year-old has been in impressive form for his Catalan club in the new Spanish La Liga season thereby attracting interest from the Premier League.

He has played a big role in Espanyol’s rise to the top five on the Spanish league table.

According to the publication from trusted Spanish media platform Marca via dailycannon, Arsenal are thinking about paying his release clause to sign him when the winter transfer window opens.

It was revealed that the Real Madrid Academy graduate has a release clause of €40m in his current contract at Espanyol and that the Gunners will have to pay it to sign their transfer target.

Arsenal could face a stumbling block in their bid to sign him due to the fact that Real Madrid have a €7.5m buyback clause in his Espanyol contract.

He came through the ranks at Real Madrid but didn’t make any appearance for the first team before joining Espanyol.

It was also revealed that the Los Merengues are entitled to half of his release clause (€20m) if the European champions decide against activating the buyback clause.

Sandro Tonali

Chelsea target Sandro Tonali has had his profile improved with his first national team call-up at the age of 18.

Roberto Mancini is not willing to take any chance on the player so as not to be snatched by other countries that are monitoring his progress, hence decided to hand him a place in the Azzurri side.

The likes of Juventus and Manchester City have all lined up for the Serie B Brescia player and they have been told that they will have to pay as much as £35 million to have him move away.

The young lad told CalcioMercato journalist Giacomo Brunetti of his experience and feeling with his first call to the national team.

Sandro Tonali stated that his first day with the team was as calm which helped him settle with other players as they all expressed their delight in seeing him in the national colours.

He added that he had learnt from his senior teammates and hope it continues but noted that the best decision for him was to have stayed with Brescia and not moving to Europe.

However, Sandro Tonali refused to speak on the interest for him from the Stamford Bridge but was quick to express his pleasure at being compared with legendary player Pirlo.

Aaron Ramsey

ESPN pundit Paul Mariner who is believed to be an insider has revealed that there is a secret pact between Arsenal contract rebel Aaron Ramsey and Liverpool which may mean a transfer for the Wales international to the Anfield.

Ramsey is set to leave the club at the end of the season after seeing his contract run into the last months without any agreement on the table owing to the financial burden a new deal might cost the club.

Ramsey has had a gentleman’s agreement with the North London side where he was told he will not be allowed to leave in the January transfer window but will see out his contract and leave as a free agent at the end of the season.

A lot has been speculated about the would-be destination of the Wales international with Manchester United, Juventus, Real Madrid all reported to be interested in having the star player.

But latest revelation reveals that there might have been an agreement between the Reds and the player to have him replace James Milner at the club.

Manchester United have opened contract talks with Arsenal target Juan Manuel Mata.

The 30-year-old has less than a year on his current Manchester United contract thus leading to rumours about his long-term future at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard has been strongly linked with a free transfer move to Arsenal at the end of this season.

He has also been linked with a return to former club Valencia.

A move to North London with Arsenal would afford him the opportunity to reunite with his former manager Unai Emery.

Mata and Unai Emery enjoyed a three-year working relationship at Spanish La Liga giants Valencia.

The Spanish international midfielder played under Unai Emery between 2008 and 2011 before he sealed a big money move to Chelsea in the summer of 2011.

He helped the Blues win both the 2012 Champions League and 2013 Europa League titles before he left for Manchester United in January 2014.

The Reds Devils paid a club-record fee of £37.1m for the playmaker who then signed a four-and-a-half year contract until 2018.

The proposed reunion with Unai Emery has been thrown in doubt following the news that he’s in talks with Manchester United over a contract extension alongside teammates Ander Herrera and England international player Ashley Young.

Klopp

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has advised manager Jurgen Klopp to look inwards into the league for additions, naming Fulham as a club to raid ahead of the winter transfer window which opens in coming months.

Aldridge gave the advice after Liverpool played a 2-0 win against Fulham at the weekend.

The Liverpool hero noted that the Cottagers had lost but they showed lots of positives and most importantly, they have got players of big quality that can fit into the Reds team and make the difference.

He named Aleksandar Mitrovic who almost gave Fulham the lead in the game with a header and Ryan Sessegnon as players who proved they can play on a bigger level.

Aldridge stated that Fulham are currently struggling at the bottom of the Premier League but they have got certain players who do not deserve to be there after what he saw on Sunday.

However, the decision is for Jurgen Klopp to make as he is believed to be storming the January transfer market to add more strength to his team.

Liverpool’s bid to win a title this season goes a long way with the quality of the team they have got and that has been identified by the German manager.

Bahia vice-president Victor Ferraz talked about the transfer status of Ramires while he was speaking on Radio Metropole.

Ferraz further added that the club is waiting for bids for the highly rated Brazilian midfielder.

Ramires, with real names Eric Dos Santos Rodrigues, has been linked with a move to Europe ahead of the upcoming transfer window in the New Year.

Premier League giants Arsenal and Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid are the two clubs linked with the 18-year-old.

Arsenal would be hoping to see off the Spanish side in their pursuit of the highly rated midfielder.

The Gunners have already been beaten by the opposition on the pitch last season and the North London giants would try to avoid a repeat off it.

Arsenal were eliminated by Atletico Madrid in the semifinals of last season’s Europa League campaign via a 2-1 aggregate win over the Gunners.

Atletico Madrid went on to win the title following the 2-0 win over French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille in their final clash in May.

Arsenal have already recruited some exciting midfielders like Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi and RamRamires could join them in North London.
