HE’S yours for £32million, Ed.Mauricio Pochettino, the world’s most wanted boss when he led Tottenham to the Champions League final 119 days ago, comes with a hefty price-tag.5 Manchester United should go for Mauricio Pochettino – but it would cost them £32mCredit: GettyBut look at it another way — it is £14m cheaper than midfielder Fred, a complete flop since he arrived 15 months ago and a standout example of Manchester United’s malaise.United, who first courted Poch when they fired Louis van Gaal in May 2016 and again just days before Jose Mourinho was sent packing last December, are likely to try again at some point.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who squeezed past League One Rochdale on penalties in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, is feeling the strain.The job of reviving United, of fighting it out for football’s big prizes, is beyond him, despite what club chief Ed Woodward claims in public.5POCH’S TORTUOUS WEEKEvery result is forensically analysed, with poor performances against Dale, West Ham and Astana in their last three games adding to the unease around the place. Arsenal, at home on Monday, is a biggie.By then the future of Pochettino will be clearer because he will be judged by Spurs fans during their home game against Southampton.It feels like he needs to win, and to win well, after another tortuous week.After the Carabao Cup shootout defeat against Colchester United on Tuesday, he admitted to cracks inside the first-team dressing room.Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker-Peters, Eric Dier, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have all had beefs with the world’s most wanted.CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FALLOUTYesterday, when he adopted a sunnier disposition, Poch maintained he is the man to put things right.Spurs, who have faith in their highly-regarded head coach to start winning again, can cope with one sticky run.The problem is whether Poch is really in for the next cycle, with the widely- accepted White Hart Lane view that another squad overhaul is due.After five years during which he has overseen a change of personnel, added noughts to the valuations of some ordinary footballers, ushered them into their sparkly new stadium and led them to a European Cup final, he is entitled to think about his future.He was upset by the celebrations at the post-Champions League final banquet, when Spurs top brass drank and sang and toasted their success until the early hours.5The failure to win, to beat Liverpool in Madrid that night, hurt Poch more than he has ever let on.It was the culmination of five years’ hard graft and the Argentinian was desperate to have something to show for it by landing the biggest prize in European club football.That abridged version of his spell in North London would wipe out most people.In the summer, when Max Allegri announced a year-long sabbatical, Poch was known to covet the Juventus job.The Agnelli family turned to Maurizio Sarri, with his £5m buyout clause at Chelsea making it more appealing.Poch is an expensive acquisition.SPURS-UNITED BAD RELATIONSWhen he signed a new five-year deal at the start of last season, he did so without inserting any exit clauses into his contract.It means the cream of Europe — Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, United — would have to pay up his contract, which has three years and nine months to run, in full.Poch earns around £8.5m a year, but there is no chance of getting him on the cheap.For United to poach a rival Premier League manager, it would be a complicated process.There is discord between Spurs and United, a fractious relationship between the top brass after years of rancour over player sales.Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov all forced Daniel Levy’s hand to make the move to Old Trafford happen. It has not been forgotten.Spurs chairman Levy, who has turned down an official approach from Real Madrid and an unofficial move by Chelsea for his manager, does not want to let him go.PRESSURE BUILDS ON OLEThe problem is Poch and his failure to unequivocally pass on the message to his employer and his players that he is staying.Nobody can say for certain.The firm view at Old Trafford, based on soundings taken in the game, is that Pochettino wants away.If that is correct, he could do with a break first.This job is chaotic, with the pressures and the demands on the top managers turning them into emotional wrecks.He needs a period of introspection, some time to recover as he comes to terms with the first serious wobble of his Spurs career.Solskjaer has different pressures, with United’s 659million worldwide fanbase all seeming to have their say on social media.It makes grim reading for him.They want the winning feeling again, longing for those giddy days when they could turn up and expect to see their boys triumph.It is stodgy stuff, with United’s players struggling to adapt to Solskjaer’s methods.latest Manchester United newsLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordMAN DOWNUtd and City face TWO-WEEK summer if they reach Euro finals before new Prem seasonDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedPEA SHOOTERHernandez: Man Utd ‘still haunted’ by ‘mistake’ of Moyes replacing FergusonDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in training5He has boardroom backing, but the possibility of taking Pochettino to the Theatre of Dreams will always be a temptation.To make it happen, it will cost them £32m.For United, it’d be worth every penny.5 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is facing a big struggle at Manchester UnitedCredit: Getty

But Vodafone Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan is keeping the player’s name under his sleeves and will only name the player if he is selected to be part of the Hong Kong and Singapore 7s tournaments. Speaking to Times Sports, Ryan did not want to divulge any further information on the player, only saying that we’ll “find out when we pick the side”.However, Times Sports believes that the player could be one of the France-based players that Ryan had been eyeing to have in the team. The mecca of sevens tournament with the last three tournaments in the series will also be the last chance for any overseas-based player to make the side in order to be eligible for the Rio Olympics selection. Meanwhile, Ryan said they had put together a world-class protocol to assist the team should players go through another phase of health problem as in previous tournaments. “We only really had big problems in Vegas and Vancouver. We have world-class protocols in place for reducing (should there) any chance of illness,” Ryan said. In South Africa, nippy Jerry Tuwai was affected and it happened as well in Las Vegas which saw key players such as Vatemo Ravouvou and Amenoni Nasilasila missing out in the last tournament in Vancouver, Canada. Meanwhile, another fitness test is expected to be conducted today as Ryan said “some boys have some improvements to make – there will be another test on Tuesday” after they had a fitness test conducted when they marched into camp last week. The Hong Kong 7s will be held on April 8-10 and the Singapore tournament will be on April 16-17.(Vodafone Fiji’s coach Ben Ryan talking to the team during a recent tournament. Picture: Vodafone)

One of the points of the discord between Igor Angulo and Górnik Zabrze was the age of the Spanish striker, who on January 26 met 36 years. “It is a number that is less and less important. Those that matter are those of the statistics and they reflect that I now help my team more than 15 years ago. That is what has to be valued. There are teams that look at the age , but most begin to focus solely on performance, “says Angulo, who has been interested in virtually all teams in the Polish First Division:” They have called me, but for now I don’t value playing in another Polish team. It is clear that if I have to do it I will do it because the family comes first, but for the same money I would go play outside. It would be very difficult for the president and the fans to see me in another shirt. “Although there are many teams that have knocked on the door of Igor Angulo, the Spaniard has only revealed the name of one, the Adana Dermispor, who is currently active in the Second Division of Turkey: “I have done it because it is a club that has been wanting me for a year and a half. In all the transfer windows they have made an offer, but Górnik has rejected them all.” The former Athletic Club values ”their constancy” and the fact that “the economic conditions they offer are much better than those here.” “I have an age and the economic issue matters. Although I feel good it is a fact that the end of my career is closer than when I was 25 years old. And if players like Villa or Torres, who have their life and their great-grandchildren’s lives resolved, hit one last ball before retiring imagine me, I don’t have that money“, discovers Angulo. He is 36 years old, but he feels “better than when he was 25”. Igor Angulo (Bilbao, 1984) expands in Poland the best moment of his sports career. The forward formed in the quarry of Athletic Club accumulates 81 goals with the Górnik Zabrze, the team he came to when he was playing in Second and with which he reached to play the previous phase of the Europa League and become the ‘Pichichi’ of the Ekstraklasa. The idyll between club and player is total, but their paths could be very close to separating: “Here I feel at home and people love me a lot. After having achieved so many things it will be very difficult to leave, but the family is first“.After several months negotiating the renewal of his contract, which expires next June, Bartosz Sarnowski, president of Górnik Zabrze, announced that he will not improve the offer that already rests on the table of Igor Angulo. The Spaniard considers it insufficient and, if nothing changes, he will leave the team next summer, once the season ends. “They offered me a year, then one plus one and then two. That was one of my conditions, but economically I have much better offers from other sites and I have to value them. I’m willing to lose money for staying, but everything has a limit“, Angulo reveals. Although Igor Angulo is going through a great personal moment, Górnik Zabrze does not go through the best time in its history. The template of the tricolor painting was reduced during the past summer market and that translated into more than 100 days without knowing the victory in the league: “We fixed it at the end with two consecutive wins at home. And thankfully, because the fans were already starting to mosquear. We have to improve but we also need signings. “The Bilbao striker confesses to being an” ambitious “player and, although the season did not start well, he is the top scorer of the team with nine goals.” I hope to score more and help the team not to descend. Last year we suffered a lot and this course we are on the same path, “adds the Spanish.To fulfill the team’s salvation, Igor Angulo will have the Madrid player at his side Jesus Jimenez, second top scorer of the team with eight goals. “It was difficult for him to adapt and the first months were bad, he even received whistles from the fans, but the master detected his talent, gave him confidence and has made him one of the most important players in the team. It is capital for us and a great professional. He deserves everything that is happening to him, “Angulo values. Between the two they have scored more than 70% of Górnik Zabrze’s goals in this edition of Ekstraklasa, which returns on February 8 after the winter break.” preseason becomes long and the friendlies are a pain. What I want is to compete, “says the exleon. Igor Angulo An icon in PolandIgor Angulo is not a footballer anymore. In the almost four years he accumulates wearing the Górnik Zabrze shirt, the Spanish striker has become an icon of Polish football. That is why the fans of the ‘mining’ club decided to raise money to help the club in its renewal: “It was an incredible initiative, it says a lot about what people love me. I have given a lot for this club, but what that they have brought to me is incalculable. It is a very nice gesture and it means a lot to me because the love of your hobby is one of the most important things. “Angulo also feels “proud” of having been chosen best Zabrze athlete in 2019. “It is a wonder that you value your work so much. Of the three full years that I have been in Poland I have been all three on the podium. I, above all, work for myself and my family, but that the people around you value you so much it is very big, “the Spanish forward appreciates, that next February could be made with another award, the one of the best foreign footballer of the Ekstraklasa:” It is a very big recognition for both me and Górnik Zabrze. And also for the Spanish soccer players from Poland (the other nominees are Jorge Félix, from Piast Gliwice, and Jesús Imaz, from Jagiellonia.) Since I arrived there are many of us who are giving a great performance and that makes more and more arrive. “Górnik Zabrze & nbsp; (Facebook) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Igor Angulo Iggor Angulo, Spanish striker of Polish Górnik Zabrze, celebrates one of his goals against Jagiellonia during an Ekstraklasa match.Górnik Zabrze (Facebook) “If players like Villa or Torres hit a final shot imagine me …”
Under this premise, it seems clear that the costumes have definitely made the cross to Abidal, whose only way out is to present the resignation, to avoid greater evils and make the snowball even bigger.Remember that the fuse that has caused such a fire was caused by Abidal to imply that with Ernesto Valverde there were several players who “did not work much.” Messi’s response, through social networks, was as blunt as it was bleeding: “If you say this, say names because if you’re not dirtying everyone. And also assume your responsibilities in sports management as we do the players in the field ”. In case President Josep Maria Bartomeu was missing more arguments when making a decision regarding the future of his technical secretary, Eric Abidal, this Wednesday before the morning session, sand convened an urgent meeting between the captains to assess the events that occurred in the last hours, with the statements of Eric Abidal as a thread.From the meeting between the captains (Messi, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto), the group’s unanimous and absolute support for Leo Messi’s response to Abidal’s insinuations was confirmed. Even the French clan, unconditional friend of the still technical secretary, supported his captain.
