Man United’s Rashford, McTominay doubts for Sheffield United game

Man United’s Rashford, McTominay doubts for Sheffield United game

[ad_1] Manchester United could be without forward Marcus Rashford and midfielder Scott McTominay through injury when they take on bottom-side Sheffield United at Old Trafford, manager Erik ten Hag said on the eve of Wednesday’s Premier League game. The 26-year-old Rashford had a stellar 2022-23 campaign, scoring 30 goals in all competitions and went on to be named United’s player of the year, but the England international has only netted eight times this season. McTominay, meanwhile, has 10 goals across all competitions this season. The duo picked up their respective injuries during Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Championship side Coventry City, which United won on penalties after surrendering a 3-0 lead at Wembley. “We had a problem with (Alejandro) Garnacho, that’s why we took him off during the game, but I think he will be fine,” Ten Hag told reporters. “Scott we have to assess today, really doubtful. Marcus is also doubtful, and there was also an issue with Bruno (Fernandes) with the hand but I think he can make it. “We have some doubts …

Erik ten Hag labels reaction to Manchester United’s Coventry win ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’

Erik ten Hag labels reaction to Manchester United’s Coventry win ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’

[ad_1] Ten Hag admitted Antony should not have acted in such fashion but revealed that his behaviour was a reaction to early provocation from Coventry players. “Did you see the reaction of Harry Maguire?” Ten Hag asked. “He [Antony] was provoked. This was a reaction to that. You haven’t seen the provocation, you only saw the reaction. But he should not do it. “But I have also seen Harry Maguire straight after and others. We should acknowledge the performance from Coventry to come into that final and come back. We are for 70 minutes totally dominating the game by far and creating many chances and 3-0 must have been the game closed. But the return from their side was very good.” United play bottom club Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night when Ten Hag could be without at least 12 senior players after his squad was further decimated by injuries sustained against Coventry. Ten Hag has doubts over Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford and hopes Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes can recover from …

United’s Ten Hag heaps praise on youthful Garnacho

United’s Ten Hag heaps praise on youthful Garnacho

[ad_1] MANCHESTER, England : Alejandro Garnacho made the difference in Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Everton on Saturday, creating both penalties with his deft dribbles in the box that proved nightmarish for Everton. The 19-year-old United winger has started every game since late October, emerging as a player manager Erik ten Hag can count on with a consistency that belies his age. “He’s progressing very well and we are very pleased with this,” Ten Hag said. “His contribution today was huge, his runs, his dribbles. It’s attractive as well for the audience, obviously we want to show something. I think well-deserved penalties.” Captain Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford stepped up to convert the first-half penalties that helped keep United’s hopes of a top-four finish alive. They are sixth in the table, eight points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa. Ten Hag believes Garnacho will only continue to improve. “It’s about him and if he can keep the focus and he puts the right effort in, in the game and also during the week,” the Dutchman said. …

Can Man United’s Onana eclipse controversy to inspire Cameroon AFCON glory? | Football

Can Man United’s Onana eclipse controversy to inspire Cameroon AFCON glory? | Football

[ad_1] Just as Cameroon produces outstanding goalkeepers arguably more than any other nation in Africa, they are uniquely prone to controversy in that department as well: Manchester United’s first-choice Andre Onana is merely the latest of them. The most infamous example happened in the 1980s and ’90s when the 20-year rivalry between goalkeepers Thomas N’Kono and Joseph-Antoine Bell reached new dimensions. The latter accused team manager Valery Nepomnyashchy of succumbing to “high Cameroonian domestic politics” after he was dropped on the eve of the 1990 World Cup for criticising the team. There were also rumours that Bell’s constant clamour for improved bonuses had irritated the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) and made the sports minister consider revoking his citizenship. In 2013, experienced first-choice keeper Carlos Kameni was dropped from the national team for, according to then-Cameroon coach Volker Finke, being a disorderly influence in the dressing room. So Onana’s eviction from the Indomitable Lions camp during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, following an unspecified difference of opinion with coach Rigobert Song, came as no surprise. …

Cameroon allow André Onana to play in Manchester United’s game against Spurs | Manchester United

[ad_1] Manchester United’s goalkeeper André Onana will be available for the Premier League game against Tottenham on 14 January, 24 hours before Cameroon start their Africa Cup of Nations campaign against Guinea. United and Onana have reached an agreement with the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) to delay his release for the tournament. The compromise will allow the 27-year-old to be involved in the FA Cup third round tie at Wigan on Monday and Spurs’ visit to Old Trafford before flying immediately after that game to the Ivory Coast. Fecafoot was prepared to be flexible having persuaded Onana to come out of international retirement and help their Afcon qualifying campaign in September. The keeper ended his international career in 2022 following a dispute with Fecafoot president, Samuel Eto’o, and had not expected to be involved in Afcon when signing from Internazionale last summer. Onana’s desire to play for both club and country – he could have potentially missed six United matches without the delayed release – convinced Cameroon to accept his late arrival in Ivory Coast. …

Chris Wilder vows crackdown after Sheffield United’s lineup leaked | Sheffield United

Chris Wilder vows crackdown after Sheffield United’s lineup leaked | Sheffield United

[ad_1] Chris Wilder has vowed to tighten security measures at Sheffield United after his starting lineup was leaked on social media in the buildup to Friday’s draw at Aston Villa. The United manager said it was “a joke” that individuals purporting to be supporters of the club shared team news on X, formerly known as Twitter, on the morning of the game. United had to settle for for a point at Villa after Nicolo Zaniolo struck in the penultimate minute of second-half stoppage time to cancel out Cameron Archer’s well-taken 87th-minute strike. The draw briefly lifted United off the bottom before Burnley won at Fulham on Saturday. Wilder was delighted with his side’s dogged display at Villa Park but angered about the pre-match leak and said he will take steps to prevent a repeat occurring against Luton on Boxing Day. “Everybody will know the team [for the game against Luton] by the way because it will come out on Twitter apparently at about half 10 on Boxing Day morning, so you’ll know the team pretty …

Erik ten Hag still unclear over Manchester United’s injury problems | Manchester United

[ad_1] Erik ten Hag has said Manchester United remain unsure why they have sustained so many injuries despite conducting an internal investigation. The manager has been without up to 11 players owing to various problems this season, with Casemiro, Lisandro Martínez, Tyrell Malacia, Harry Maguire, Mason Mount, Kobbie Mainoo and Victor Lindelöf absent for Saturday’s early kick-off at West Ham. Christian Eriksen, Amad Diallo, Luke Shaw and Raphaël Varane have previously been missing. Ten Hag said: “We did research about it but there are so many factors, you can’t point at one factor. But in this moment what is most important is that we have to deal with it and we have to work to get the players back as soon as possible because we know we have a strong squad once we have everyone on board.” skip past newsletter promotion Sign up to Football Daily Kick off your evenings with the Guardian’s take on the world of football “,”newsletterId”:”the-fiver”,”successDescription”:”Kick off your evenings with the Guardian’s take on the world of football”}” config=”{“renderingTarget”:”Web”,”darkModeAvailable”:false}”>Privacy Notice: Newsletters …

Manchester United’s European dream collapses with defeat to Bayern | Champions League

[ad_1] Anything is possible, Erik ten Hag had claimed, if Manchester United brought their A-game. And yet it still felt outlandish to really believe they were about to beat Bayern Munich, let alone have the other Group A game, between Copenhagen and Galatasaray, end in a draw; the double whammy to save their skin. United, after all, have not beaten a top-ranked team during this traumatic season. They have won only once against opponents that currently sit in the top half of the Premier League – and that was 10th-placed Fulham. They were not terrible, they tried their best, they were not blown away by the champions of Germany. These are the kind of positives for which their fans must scrape. They were just nowhere near good enough. It was a night when they barely laid a glove on a Bayern team that operated within themselves, when the distance to the very top was mapped out in front of a subdued and resigned Old Trafford crowd. Bayern ensured they did not run the risk of …
