Lack of love the reason for Alexis’s Man Utd struggles?

first_imgChile head coach Reinaldo Rueda has suggested that Alexis Sanchez feels more love and affection with his national team than he does at Manchester United.Alexis endured a miserable 2018-19 Premier League season as he scored just two times in all competitions over the entire campaign, with United finishing a disappointing sixth in the table.His form has been much better on the international stage, however, as he scored his second Copa America goal in as many games in a 2-1 win over 10-man Ecuador on Friday. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? The former Arsenal and Barcelona forward, who also played through an ankle injury, struck a 51st-minute winner to move onto two Copa goals, sending his side through to the quarter-finals in the process.Alexis’s well-documented struggles at Old Trafford have seen him manage just five goals in 45 appearances across all competitions since joining the Red Devils in January 2018.That form has seen him linked with an exit in the summer, with Serie A side Inter having been mooted as a potentially interested party, while a shock loan move to Palmeiras has also been mentioned in the press.And Rueda feels that Alexis’s struggles domestically are a reflection of United being “unbalanced”, suggesting that he doesn’t get the same levels of affection with his club as he does on the international scene.”He has the motivation, affection and some relationships that he has in the national team and maybe he didn’t have them in Manchester,” Rueda said after Chile’s victory over Ecuador.”He arrived at a difficult, inopportune moment, perhaps in the most unbalanced United in recent years.”Chile are guaranteed to advance from Group C after also winning their opening game 4-0 against Japan, but they must avoid defeat against Uruguay in Rio de Janeiro on Monday to secure top spot.Uruguay started with a bang as they too recorded a 4-0 win to begin their Copa America campaign, easing past an Ecuador side whose ill-discipline saw them shown the first of what would be two red cards in as many games.However, they struggled to a 2-2 draw with Japan last time out and need at least a draw to be certain of qualification to the knockout stages.last_img read more

Grujic returns to Hertha on season-long loan

first_imgHertha Berlin have signed Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic on a season-long loan.The Serbia international will return to the German capital for a second successive campaign, having turned down offers from Bundesliga rivals Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt.Liverpool will receive a £2 million loan fee as part of the deal, plus potential bonuses of £500,000, while Hertha will cover his wages in full and there will also be a penalty structure on game time, meaning the Bundesliga club will be charged if Grujic does not play.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Grujic impressed with Hertha last term, making 23 appearances and scoring five goals. The 23-year-old was desperate to secure first-team football this season in order to aid his development.Frankfurt could have offered European football, while Bremen used international team-mate Milos Veljkovic and manager Florian Kohfeldt to make their case, but Grujic settled well in Berlin last season and is happy to continue his career at the Olympiastadion.Liverpool will hope he can continue to showcase the talent which convinced them to sign him from Red Star Belgrade in 2016. Grujic was a regular starter for Hertha when fit, but saw his progress hampered by a pair of ill-timed ankle injuries.The tall, powerful midfield man has already made 14 senior appearances for the Reds but the last came in December 2017.However, sources have told Goal that the plan is still very much for Grujic to return to Liverpool and become an important part of the squad for the 2020-21 season. Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with Grujic’s attitude and maturity in choosing Hertha again as the Reds boss believes it is an ideal move for the player’s development on the road to being used by Liverpool.It is also considered significant that both Cardiff and Hertha, where Grujic has been on loan in recent seasons, have both been desperate to keep him for another season.Liverpool fielded enquiries from a number of European clubs in recent weeks, including Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and Premier League side Brighton, but Grujic’s preference was for a loan deal with Hertha. He has trained hard while on holiday in Mykonos this summer, and has joined up with his new team-mates for the first day of pre-season training on Monday.His departure is one of many anticipated at Anfield in the coming weeks. Rafa Camacho has already left for Sporting Lisbon, while Sheyi Ojo joined Rangers on loan earlier this month.Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Herbie Kane should secure loans to Championship clubs – Hull are keen on both Kane and Woodburn – while Kamil Grabara has interest from Germany, Belgium and England after his impressive performances at the European Under-21 Championship.Ryan Kent is wanted by Rangers, Aston Villa, Leeds and Middlesbrough, while Harry Wilson is expecting to go on Liverpool’s tour of the USA before a decision is made on his future.Anderson Arroyo and Taiwo Awoniyi are two more players who will depart, likely on loan.last_img read more
