Review of the Day

 


Contracts

Ashley Young has extended his contract with Manchester United for an extra year. The 33 year old's deal was set to expire in the summer but he will now stay put until 2020.

Real Oviedo full back Mossa has signed a new 2 and a half year deal with the club.

Al Ahly, Egypt's biggest club, have extended the contract of two of their squad. Ali Maaloul is now locked in until 2022, while youngster Karim Nedved has signed a long term contract which keeps him at the club until 2025.

 

Transfers

Former Arsenal keeper Vito Mannone has swapped Reading for Major League Soccer. The 30 year, who also played for Sunderland and Hull City, has signed on loan for Minnesota United until the end of the year.

Aaron Ramsey has become the most overpaid player in football, as the oft-injured midfielder has signed a pre-contract to join Juventus in the summer. The Welsh international will become the highest paid British player ever when he completes his move to the Serie A giants. If ever there was proof needed that football has gone mad....

Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch has made a free transfer move to Gyeongnam FC in South Korea.

 

Scholes Takes Charge

Former England and Manchester United player Paul Scholes has made his first foray into management after he was named new boss of Oldham Athletic. Scholes said: "I wouldn't be here if I didn't feel excited. I've prepared well for it, I've watched the team play and I think they are capable of winning a lot of games. If they don't, it's my fault. It's a squad that should be pushing for promotion - that might be out of reach for this season, but certainly next season." Scholes has famously supported Oldham since he was a youngster.

 

Ipswich Suffer Sears Blow

As if it was not bad enough losing the Old Farm derby to Norwich City at the weekend, Ipswich Town also lost their top scorer to a cruciate ligament injury. Striker Freddie Sears faces up to a year on the sidelines.

 

Wednesday Lose Chief Exec

Chief executive Katrien Meire has left Sheffield Wednesday, just over a year after the Belgian joined the club from Charlton Athletic. The club was put up for sale by current owner Dejphon Chansiri in December and could be facing another transfer embargo, which would be their second in less than 12 months.

 

Makudi Has Ban Overturned

Former FIFA executive member and former president of the FA of Thailand Worawi Makudi has had his 5 year ban for "forgery and falsification" overturned. Understandable, as we all know how clean all of FIFA is of these kinds of issues. The Court of Arbitration for Sport did find Makudi guilty of the lesser charge of "obligation of the parties to collaborate".

 

Mourinho Gets New Platform

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will have a new platform to point the finger of blame at others for his failings in the role after agreeing a deal to host his own show on RT, the channel that used to be called Russia Today. Mourinho worked as a pundit for RT during the World Cup in the summer. Since being sacked by Man Utd he has also worked as a pundit for BeIn Sports, where the two bigots presenting spent their time with their head up his backside and failed to ask him any difficult questions or mention how well United did after he left, or even mention the 'catalogue of failings' that the Salford club said it had identified.

 

Alaves Fan Protest Monday Night Football

The fans of CD Alaves held a mock funeral in the stands in protest at their match with Levante being moved to Monday night for TV coverage. A banner reading "RIP Football" was held up as fans dressed in black carried a coffin into the stadium. A large number of fans boycotted kick-off and entered the ground 5 minutes after kick off took place.
