Man Utd drew AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League

Man Utd did not finish any goal in the AZ Alkmaar draw 0-0 in the second round of the Europa League group stage, on the evening of October 3.

AZ is third in the Dutch league, only one point behind PSV Eindhoven and Ajax Amsterdam. As the homeowners but due to the AFAS stadium being remodeled, they had to borrow the Cars Jeans yard to welcome Man Utd. That does not affect the performance of Arne Slot teachers and students. They had four finishes on target, while Man Utd did not once hit the ball into the goal. AZ has twice the number of finishes from England.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer uses three teenage kick players, defender Brandon Williams, midfielder Angel Gomes and striker Mason Greenwood. With the second squad, Man Utd was hard to impose the game. At many times they were overwhelmed by AZ. In the 11th minute, Fredrik Midtsjo crossed the ball for Myron Boadu and headed for De Gea. But, the goal was not recognized due to the offside striker before finishing. Three minutes later, De Gea saved the visitors’ save after a long-range shot from Oussama Idrissi.

Man Utd played close to the opponent, but they rarely won the ball to attack dangerously. The best opportunity for the visitors came in 30 minutes, with an attack on the right. Diogo Dalot, the overlapping husband for Daniel James, escaped near the crossbar and returned it to Greenwood. The 18-year-old striker took a touch in an empty posture but hit the defender AZ.

In the first half, Man Utd only had three finishes. Their situation did not improve after the break. AZ invades and creates more delicious opportunities. 71 minutes, defender Owen Wijndal dangerous shot forced De Gea to throw all the people to prevent. A few minutes later, Idrissi made a quick kick in the penalty area and narrowly missed the post.

Man Utd’s best chance in the second half came in the 84th minute when Jesse Lingard volleyed in the penalty area and the ball went wide. A few minutes earlier, Marcus Rashford said he was fouled in the penalty area, but the referee did not blow the AZ defender. Coach Solskjaer laughed after the ball.

After two turns, Man Utd finished second in Group L of the Europa League with four points. They are equal to the Serbia club Partizan but poor in goals.

MU was happy about pushing Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan

MU players were delighted when Alexis Sanchez was pushed to Inter Milan on loan during the summer transfer window this year.

Alexis Sanchez has made the MU dressing room divided when he only scored 5 goals in 45 appearances for MU, but enjoyed a towering salary of £ 500,000 / week. According to British media, many MU players are happy to see Sanchez being pushed to Inter Milan on loan during the transfer window this summer.

A source close to MU shared in The Sun newspaper: “He is not Messi, so why does the team pay him such a high salary”.

However, MU is still paying a large sum for Sanchez to persuade Inter Milan to share the burden. According to the British and Italian press, MU still pay 3/4 of Sanchez’s salary while the player plays in Italy, about 365,000 pounds/ week.

Thus, Inter Milan only cost a small fee to borrow Chilean players and paid Sanchez a salary of more than £ 100,000 / week this season.

Sanchez personally has declared he failed at MU because he does not play regularly. However, the Chilean player has never regretted his decision to join Man Utd.

“If they let me play for 90 minutes each game, I will not fail like that. But the fact is that I usually only have 60 minutes to play and not being let to play in the next match. I do not know why…

I am very happy to play for the national team. I am also very happy to play for Man Utd, but I always tell my friends I want to play. If they let me play regularly, I will show my best performance …

I have no regrets about my decision. I was happy to join MU, I always said that. It was the most successful club in England, although my time at Arsenal was also great. I am happy to play football at Arsenal.

But at that time, MU was thriving. They buy many players to look for titles and I want to join this team to win. “

Pogba will continue to play for Man Utd

Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists midfielder Paul Pogba still stay at Old Trafford despite rumors that he will move to Real Madrid.

Paul Pogba will continue to play for us,” coach Solskjaer said after a 1-1 draw with Southampton on August 31. “He has problems with his ankle, but the injury is not so bad. I hope he recovers to play for France next week, because I know he loves the team.”

Paul Pogba has long had a reputation to go to Real Madrid. The Spanish team also openly expressed their desire to have Man Utd midfielder, but the obstacle of this deal lies in the transfer value. Real have two days left to attempt, before the transfer market in La Liga closes on September 2.

Pogba is the focus of criticism, as Man Utd won only five points through the first four Premier League rounds. In the middle of the week, the fans sprayed paint on a sign at Carrington training ground, with the implication of wanting to get rid of Pogba from Old Trafford.

Against Southampton yesterday, the French midfielder continued to play badly. He lost the ball 20 times, 13 of which came in the first half. Pogba’s lackluster performance contributed to Man Utd’s ability to leave St Mary’s with three points, though more than the player in the last 20 minutes.

“We played well in the first 30 minutes, then a few players started to lose the ball sloppily and Pogba was one of them,” Solskjaer said of the match yesterday 31/8. “Everyone expected Pogba to be able to do anything, in every match. He had to defend, attack, dispute the ball well, tackle the ball, dribble, pass the ball well. Pogba is a excellent player but he is under a lot of pressure “.
