David De Gea, the Manchester United goalkeeper, has stated that winning over Manchester United fans has been very proud moment. De Gea has retrieved from a shaky beginning to life at Old Trafford to become an important member of new manager David Moyes' team this season.
David Moyes has already praised him and he has also got support from the fans of the club and now the Spanoard has talked about all his happiness in Manchester United. According to reports, De Gea told that when a footballer wins over a club's fans, it is a very proud moment. These are the people who pay money to come to watch you each week. He added that the footballer owe this to them and gives his best for the team. It makes him very happy when fans chant his name.
Manchester city's most important game of the season will come this weekend when they play host to Manchester United at the Etihad stadium. The two archrivals will be meeting each other in what will be billed as the clash of the titans. City and United have won the last two Premier league titles and there will be no doubt that they will be once again competing for the title at the end of the season. Hence, this is going to be a six pointer in many ways according to City manager Manuel Pellegrini.
Manchester United have been on the lookout for a new central midfielder, as manager David Moyes has identified midfielder is one of the key areas to strengthen over the summer. It was one of the weakest positions for the club last season despite their title success.
Star striker Robin van Persie almost single-handedly helped the club in the title last season, but Moyes does not want to be over reliant on the Dutchman in the coming season. Hence, they have been linked with several central midfielders like Marouane Fellaini and Thiago Alcantara in recent weeks.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who has retired after a stellar career, has managed to win his final Manager of Year award. The 71-year-old recently guided Manchester United to the 20th league title in the history and the 13th Premier league title. He has been awarded this crowning prize by the League Managers' Association.
After receiving the award, Ferguson has said that he is glad that it has all come to an end because it has been hard work for him over the last four decades. Ferguson has managed Scottish clubs like Aberdeen, but he is hugely popular around the world due to his 26 years at Manchester United.
The Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that the penalty taking duties have been taken off the hands of Wayne Rooney at least for the moment.
The striker Wayne Rooney has missed some crucial penalties this season. His latest miss came in the match against West Ham United in the third round of the FA Cup, which could have sent the team out of the tournament once again at this stage. As a result, United decided to hand the penalty taking duties to the veteran Ryan Giggs. The 39-year-old scored from the penalty spot in the 4-1 win over Fulham during the weekend.
The Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he feels that Newcastle United have not been up to the best this season because they have lost their surprise factor. Under the management of Alan Pardew, Newcastle managed to stun everyone and finish in the fifth position last season.
There was even a time when Newcastle were on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League only for their performances to dip during the end of last season. They were expected to build on the success this time around as well, but they have struggled a lot in the Premier league.
The former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has said that he expects the summer signing Robin van Persie to be a major success at the club. The former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is the next big Dutchman to arrive at the club following the departure of van Nistelrooy in 2005.
Ruud van Nistelrooy was one of the incredible goal scorers that the club has enjoyed in the last two decades. He managed to score almost 100 goals in just 137 appearances for Manchester United in the league. He has said that he does not see a reason why Robin van Persie will be able to match that record.
The striker of Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, has said that he wants to be included in the England national team for the friendly match against Sweden which is going to be played on 14th of November.
After England’s world cup qualifying match against Poland on Monday, the manager of the England team, Roy Hodgson, had said that some of the senior players of the team would be rested for the friendly cash against Sweden next month. But, Rooney doesn’t want to be rested.
When asked whether he wants to feature for England in the match against Sweden in November, Rooney said, “Yes, off course. I don’t want to miss any international game. I have already told the manager that I want to go to Stockholm for that match.”
Manchester United are hoping that they will be able to reduce the number of injury problems that they have been suffering in recent seasons following the open of the new medical Centre. Manchester United have spent close to £ 15 million on the new medical Centre at the club's Carrington training ground. Manchester United have been one of the worst affected clubs in recent seasons in terms of the number of injuries. There have been many times during the last three seasons when Manchester United have been left with only one recognised defender at the back.
The first few matches of the new Premier League season have suggested that Manchester United still possess many of the same frailties in defence and midfield that proved so costly to them last season, and those thinking of betting on the Old Trafford club reclaiming their title with one of the sports betting or online casino gambling sites will have further cause for doubt with the news that another of the club’s defenders – Phil Jones – has now been ruled out of action for a further eight weeks.
While it is true that the 20 year old is not central to the club’s title bid – indeed he has not been able to start a match this season – and the news that he is facing a lengthy recovery time from knee surgery leaves the club even more short of reinforcements at the back.
