Liverpool were able to manage a 1-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday but that is not enough to make manager Jurgen Klopp happy.

Klopp’s side grabbed all three points but the manager looked frustrated all through the game as he showed his displeasure at his side’s performance on the field.

The Reds have now moved to second place behind Manchester City but share same points with the league leaders.

It was, however, a difficult game for the visiting team owing to the fight given by Huddersfield with 13 attempts on goal in the game.

In his reaction, Klopp admitted it was a good game for the home team but could not say same for his side despite winning. He added that it was obvious he was frustrated on the touchline because his side’s performances were poor.

The German manager said all the good things done by his side were destroyed by the last passes his men made which to him is unacceptable.

He noted that much work is needed to be done by the players to correct some of the faults in the game against Huddersfield.

However, the Reds were saved by Egypt international who seems to be returning to his best with the only goal of the game.

Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will soon make a quick decision on his future in football.

The 69-year-old Frenchman spoke about his future in a chat with The Guardian as he disclosed that he decided to take time to rest shortly after leaving Arsenal last year.

Arsene Wenger has turned down several job offers since he left North London at the end of last season.

He attained legendary status at Arsenal after leading the Gunners to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup titles.

Wenger spent 22 years at Arsenal before he resigned from his post last summer despite the fact that he had one year left on his then contract.

He almost led Arsenal to a European trophy on two occasions but was unable to win at least one.

Arsene Wenger led the Gunners to the 2000 UEFA Cup final before they were beaten on penalties by Turkish club Galatasaray after the two teams played out a goalless draw after regulation time and extra time.

The French manager also led Arsenal to the 2006 Champions League final against Spanish giants Barcelona who came from behind to beat 10-man Arsenal 2-1.

Apart from Arsenal, Wenger has also managed at clubs like Grampus Eight (Japan) and AS Monaco (France).

Europa League finalists Arsenal will have to fend off the interest of several Premier League sides in the bid to sign Reading striker Danny Loader.

This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media outlet Goal which claimed that the Gunners are plotting a move for the young English player.

Danny Loader was part of the England u17 squad that won the FIFA u17 World Cup two years ago.

Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton are also interested in the young Reading player.

Danny Loader made 22 appearances for Reading this season as he helped the Royals escape relegation from the English Championship.

He has a year left on his contract with the Royals and they might have to sell him this summer or risk losing him for nothing at the end of the new season.

Premier League clubs are not the only ones in the frame to sign Danny Loader.

French Ligue 1 clubs Lille and Rennes are eyeing a move for the 18-year-old striker as well.

Danny Loader might not be the signing for the present but he’s definitely one for the future if the Gunners can manage to pull off his transfer.

De Ligt

Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona are reportedly not willing to increase their €75m bid for highly rated Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt.

The 19-year-old Ajax skipper is one of the most sought-after players in the transfer window this summer with several clubs interested in his signature.

Five-time European champions Barcelona are said to be the favourites to sign him but the Catalans are not willing to increase their bid for him.

According to the publication from popular English media outlet Goal, Barcelona want to tempt Matthijs De Ligt away from Ajax without having to deal with his agent Mino Raiola or increase their offer for him.

Mino Raiola will most likely not be involved in De Ligt’s transfer after he was handed a worldwide transfer ban for three months.

The Super Agent was initially banned for three months in Italy before FIFA officials decided to extend his ban beyond the shores of Italy.

Ajax Amsterdam chief and former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar had earlier revealed this month that De Ligt will leave the club for either Spain or England this summer.

De Ligt was phenomenal for Ajax this season after he captained his team to a domestic double (Dutch Eredivisie and Dutch Cup).

Premier League giants Manchester United have been boosted by the news that one of their defensive transfer targets is considering a possible exit from his club.

Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos is a long-term transfer target for Manchester United and the Spanish international could be available this summer if he decides to leave the reigning European champions.

Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have been long-term admirers of Sergio Ramos and the two clubs will most definitely make a move for him in the event that he decides to leave Real Madrid.

Sergio Ramos, 33, has been a Real Madrid player since joining the club from fellow top flight side Sevilla in 2005.

Rafa Camacho remains an attacking midfielder but he has been mostly used at the Anfield as a right full-back which has not been a delight to him and that he seeks to change when he leaves the club as he has a year left to the end of his contract with Liverpool.

However, the star player already has interests flowing for him with a number of clubs already being linked. Portuguese outfit Benfica, Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan and Wolves are all suitors for the star player.

It has therefore been observed that Wolves could win the race for the signature as they have been monitoring the star player for a long period of time.
