After Liverpool edged past Manchester City, who are currently the leaders in the Premier League standings, in the quarter-final stage of the Premier League with an aggregate score 5-1, Klopp voiced his certainty that Salah is not going anywhere.Considering the fact that Coutinho was sold to Barcelona in the January transfer window despite Liverpool’s desire to keep him and the popularity of Mo Salah in the football world, there have been quite a few rumours regarding a possible transfer.“It’s not a situation that I would even think about it,” Klopp said when asked for a potential Salah sale, according to the Independent.“Mo Salah came in not a full year ago.

With all the negative press that Ousmane Dembele has been getting these past few days in Barcelona, his agent had to come out and defend him.The situation with French winger Ousmane Dembele in Barcelona has reached an important boiling point, there have been several reports of his complete indifference towards his club’s main cause and it has been proven through his late showings to games and training sessions.Just this Monday, the player got a whole new dig from his France manager and confirmed that Dembele does arrive late regularly but he always has an excuse to justify his actions.This really seems to be getting out of control for the player, who hadn’t gotten any type of defense from anybody in the most recent hours until his agent came out to defend him during an interview for RMC Sports.Moussa Sissoko, the former player who turned agent and now manages the careers of several players from his country, was asked about the situation with Dembele this Monday and his response hinted at a possible health-related problem that the player has been going through lately.The main reaction from Sissoko was to confirm that everything that’s being said about Ousmane is fake news, and he even went further.🔉Moussa Sissoko(Dembele’s agent): The criticism of Ousmane Dembele is overblown””All these criticisms make me laugh. “It had already begun with a so-called delay at the meeting before the Champions League match against Inter. pic.twitter.com/ALITdj3wbL— Blaugrana Nation (@Blaugranarealm) November 12, 2018The young star’s agent said that he has been in direct contact with several members of the club to assess the situation with his player, he revealed that the people at the club are very happy with him and there is no truth to everything that’s being said about the kid.“Ousmane is still working hard in a great club, the manager appreciates him, just like Deschamps does in the French National Team,” said Sissoko during the interview.“I also know that Abidal is very happy with everything he’s doing, he knows that he is training very well.”“All the criticism he is getting has a reason, we all know that he needs to improve on several things, but that is completely normal at his age.”“There is a lot of people who are on his toes, there was a rumor about him coming in late before a match, but the manager already clarified this situation. Now, he is suffering from gastroenteritis.”Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“Although it’s true that he called the club late for that, he did it because he was very sick. The lad is only 20 years old and he plays for Barcelona, which is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Dembele had a great start of the season.”“People want to create controversy where there is none, but Dembele has the capacity to navigate through anything,” he added.🎙 [RMCSport] | Sissoko (Dembélés agent): “Barcelona is very happy with Ousmane, Valverde appreciates him and Abidal is also happy of how Dembélé is performing and training.” pic.twitter.com/TPujrlo7Bu— BarcaTimes (@BarcaTimes) November 12, 2018As of right now, Ousmane Dembele is part of the France squad for the last international break of 2018 where Les Bleus will play against The Netherlands and Uruguay.Dembele is considered an essential part of the squad that manager Didier Deschamps took to the World Cup final last summer, the Barcelona player wasn’t a prominent part of that squad and his intention is to change the manager’s mind in order to claim his position alongside other great players such as Antoine Griezmann or Kylian Mbappé.There is a massive contrast between the type of indiscipline that the PSG winger is showing, to the one that Dembele has been accused of lately.Having an important level of activity for France during the next couple of weeks, should be a good enough motivation for him to return to Barcelona with the objective of winning back the trust of all his teammates and the manager.The most worrisome part of all this, is that Dembele wasn’t cheap and losing a talent like him would be one of the Catalan club’s biggest mistakes.After all, we are talking about the most expensive player that has ever arrived in Barcelona.Rassemblés à Clairefontaine depuis ce midi, les Bleus ont effectué une séance légère en début de soirée. pic.twitter.com/WI8vWZV6Kr— Equipe de France ⭐⭐ (@equipedefrance) November 12, 2018What do you think Ousmane Dembele should do in order to gain back the trust from his club and country?

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud revealed that Gonzalo Higuain’s arrival certainly darkens his future and opened the door towards a potential return to France.The French World Cup winner left his homeland in 2012 for Arsenal after helping Montpellier beat Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title.Last year then saw Giroud make a controversial switch to Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea after a lack of game time at the Emirates Stadium.However, under coach Maurizio Sarri, Giroud has fared little better with just six starts in the Premier League this season.This has led to reports linking Giroud with a return to France with both Marseille and Lyon.Speaking to CANAL Foot Club, prior to Higuain’s arrival last week, Giroud indicated a return to Ligue 1 could happen even if his priority is to remain in England.“I will never make people unanimously satisfied with me,” admitted Giroud.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“There is a little part of regret and frustration. The public expects a goalscorer to score goals. I’m the fourth best goalscorer of French football and nobody can take that away from me.“The coach makes [Eden] Hazard play nine which is detrimental to strikers. But he is the best player I’ve ever played with.“If the club decides to get another striker, like Higuain, it will certainly darken my future at Chelsea.“I’ve never said no to a return to France. Lyon and Marseille are two great clubs. My priority is to stay in the Premier League though.”Higuain made his Chelsea debut on Sunday in their 3-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge and was replaced by Giroud in the 82nd-minute of the fourth-round clash.The Blues will next take a trip to the Vitality Stadium where they will face Bournemouth in a Premier League match on Wednesday with kick-off set for 20:45 (CET).
Chelsea midfielder Pedro Rodriguez feels the club may be in crisis if they fail to recover from their recent run of bad results.The Blues were eliminated from the FA Cup on Monday night after a 2-0 loss on their patch to rivals United, which didn’t go down well with a section of fans in the club.Swedish side Malmo is next on the line in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie on Thursday, before Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.And former Barca winger Pedro admits the club needs to return to winning ways.“There is an important game in the Europa League for us, and after the final against City,” Pedro told Chelsea’s official website.“The most important thing now is to stay calm, train really hard and recover our best football and our best feeling, because if not we are in trouble.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.’The most important thing now is to stay calm, train really hard and recover our best football and our best feeling.’ – @_Pedro17_ https://t.co/spshoYl2bX— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 19, 2019“It was a very bad day for us, for all the team (against United). It’s a difficult situation. In the first half we played very well, we created chances to score one goal, but they had two situations and scored two goals.“The most important thing was to do a good job creating chances with the ball in the second half, but we couldn’t do it and for this reason, it was so difficult for us to come back.”

Newcastle United midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung says he’s pleased with their game management after their 2-1 win at Turf Moor on Monday.Newcastle United were already two goals ahead by the 23rd minutes of the game, thanks to an own goal from Ben Mee and a header from stand-in skipper Ciaran Clark.Sam Vokes pulled one back for Burnley just before halftime, but it Newcastle looked the more likely to score again in the second half, going forward and creating many chances.In the closing minutes of the game, Burnley pushed for an equalizer, but the visitors’ ran out 2-1 winners, and Ki believes they could have been out of sight by then by extending their lead.“Yes, for sure. We had some definite chances in the second half,” Ki told the club’s website.“In the first half, I think we were in control.

It was their home game, so there were a few moments where we were deep and had to defend, but overall I think we did very well.“Especially in an away game, to score early gives the team more confidence and takes off a lot of pressure.“Today, two goals was massive for us. It (allowed) us to control the game. I think we are becoming consistent.“Three wins in a row is not easy to achieve, but I think we dealt with every moment we faced, and then, with the ball, I think we were much better and created a lot more chances.”
Jürgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah’s game has improved tremendously as he’s adapted to playing in a slightly different position for Liverpool this season.Salah has notched in 14 goals this season and remains the club’s top scorer with the latest coming against Wolves.The Egyptian forward played as a lone striker at Molineux where he scored and assisted Virgil van Dijk’s second-half goal.“It’s good,” Klopp told reporters at Melwood on Monday morning, when asked about the Egyptian’s development. “He had to adapt a bit to the slightly different positions; it’s not that much different, but it is different from time to time.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“We need him as a link-up player as well and that’s a very important part of our game, but he is still with the desire and with his speed. His speed in the first few yards is just impressive. He is a very important part of our finishing situation in general, how we prepare them, how we come into the situations.“Of course, he is young enough to involve a lot more things in his style of play. It is not just speed, it is not just finishing, it is between the lines, there are a lot of things, there is keeping the ball, but you need your body for that. That was the only problem Mo had a little bit at the beginning of the season, a part of his body was not perfect.“If you work in an office and your shoulder is not 100 percent, if it is not your writing hand then it should be OK, but if you are a professional football player in this moment it just keeps 10 or 15 percent away.“He is a world-class player, but we all knew we had to wait for the moment when everything is fine – that is already a few weeks ago and so it’s all good.”

Rescued olive ridley sea turtle transported to SeaWorld San Diego January 26, 2018 Posted: January 26, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A rescued, endangered olive ridley sea turtle was flown into San Diego Friday afternoon after it was found stranded on an Oregon beach last October.Coral was transported to San Diego by the U.S. Coast Guard and she’ll be receiving long-term rehabilitative care at SeaWorld. Since her rescue more than three months ago, Coral has been provided expert critical care by the Seattle Aquarium.The mature female sea turtle was flown on a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft to Naval Base Coronado (Naval Air Station North Island) where she was received by the SeaWorld Rescue Team and taken to the park’s Animal Health and Rescue Center where she will continue her rehabilitation.Coral weighs about 75 pounds and is estimated to be between 18 and 25 years old. She was found stranded Oct. 20, 2017 by a member of the public on a beach near Salishan on the Oregon coast.When rescued, she was emaciated, weak and suffering from hypothermia. She was transported to the Seattle Aquarium, Washington state’s only sea turtle rehabilitation facility, arriving in critical condition. The Aquarium’s zoological staff immediately began lifesaving medical treatment including addressing serious bacterial infections.Over the past three months, Coral has been gradually recovering and is ready to begin her next phase of rehabilitation at SeaWorld San Diego. It is hoped that she can be returned to the ocean in late summer or early fall when the ocean temperature off the Southern California coast is stable around 70 degrees. Olive ridley turtles are protected under the Endangered Species Act. They are found throughout the Pacific Ocean, although they mostly occur in the tropical and subtropical areas.They generally venture no further north than Southern California on the eastern Pacific coast, but they do occasionally occur in temperate regions including the relatively cold waters of Oregon and Washington coasts.
