Van Gaal Will Be Deciding Fringe Players Future

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has revealed that he will be taking a decision on the future of the fringe players in the coming weeks. A number of players are expected to depart the club in the last few weeks of the transfer window. This is partly because van Gaal will not be able to satisfy them with first-team football since United will be involved in only three trophies in the coming season. They have failed to qualify for both the Champions League and the Europa league after a disappointing last season.

Sabella Backs Up Messi Criticism

Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has stated that superstar Lionel Messi was right to criticise his tactics in the opening group match against Bosnia. Despite having enjoyed a lot of success with the 4-3-3 formation in the last few months, Sabella decided to go with five defenders for the opening match of the World Cup 2014. This did not seem right as Argentina struggled to cope with the pressure of Bosnia in the first half. Superstar Lionel Messi was also unable to create much in the first 45 minutes.

SIlva Claims 'The Only Way To Stop Messi Is To Shoot Him'

Former AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has claimed that the only way Argentine superstar Lionel Messi can be stopped at the World Cup is by the use of a gun. Messi heads into the World Cup as of the best players in the world. Even though his form of late has not been great, he is widely seen as the man who can almost individually win the title for Argentina. Silva has come up against Messi a few times in the club career. Widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, Silva himself has struggled against Messi.

Messi Signs New Contract With Barcelona

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has agreed a new contract at the club to make him the world’s best paid player once again. Messi was recently overtaken by Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who signed a contract that paid him £ 15 million per year. Messi has now overtaken this by signing a contract that gives him £ 15.5 million per year. The two have been intense rivals in the last few years and this contract once again demonstrates this aspect. Messi already had several years left on his deal, but still wanted to sign this contract.


Inter Milan’s season went from bad to worse after they suffered a 1-0 defeat against archrivals AC Milan, who are themselves struggling in the league this season.

Since Inter came into the match on a much better form than Milan, they were expected to comfortably get a win against Clarence Seedorf’s men. The result, however, was a shock for the Inter Milan supporters. Former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong scored the only goal of the game in the 65th minute to help Milan get a rare victory.
