Major news today and BBC’s gossip column

Posted by unitedfanatic on September 7, 2009

Monday’s tabloids are covering an Inside United interview by the Gaffer, Sir Alex Ferguson. In the interview, Sir Alex reaffirmed his faith in Wayne Rooney, and added that rooney has the “drive and hunger” to succeed. He also underlined the importance of a more central role for Wazza, before adding that he is still young and there’s room for learning to channelise his energy. Further, Sir Alex claimed that if Wazza can concentrate like he did against Wigan, then nothing and no one can stop him from scoring goals.

In other news, Le Havre president Jean-Pierre Louvel has confirmed that they have submitted their case against Manchester United to FIFA. After Chelsea were hit with a transfer ban till January 2011, Le Havre have left no stone unturned in taking their case to FIFA and complaining that United offered money and incentives to Pogba. The alleged “offer” made by United has been disclosed as

£15,500-a-month when he turns 17 next year
– Payments of more than £85,000 each to the French teenager’s separated parents
– To buy Pogba a house
  • £15,500-a-month when Pogba turns 17 next year
  • Payments of more than £85,000 each to the French teenager’s separated parents
  • To buy Pogba a house

While it may take months, or even years for FIFA to arrive at any conclusion, lets hope that everything has been done, as United authorities claim, “Within UEFA guidelines”.

And finally, Monday’s gossip column on BBC claims United are seeking to secure the services of highly rated Russia and CSKA Moscow stopper, Igor Akinfeev, to fill in the boots of the ageing Edvin Van Der Sar. While the rumour mills keep grinding, there is speculation on whether he will directly claim the No.1 jersey if the transfer happens. Yet another set of rumours claim that United’s polish goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is unhappy of his role at the club as he nears his best footballing years and is willing to leave in january.

Here’s a little clip of Igor Akinfeev in action.
