Gary Neville slams ‘poor player’ Sokratis Papastathopoulos after Arsenal draw at Watford

Watford at 2-0 down never feel for one second that they can’t get back into the game.‘I just think Sokratis is a poor player, he’s a poor player. I don’t think it’s structural, I don’t think Unai Emery’s going to change, I just think it’s poor execution.’The Gunners centre-back has openly admitted to his own mistake, believing that he cost his team the three points at Vicarage Road.‘I think that I cost the game for the team,’ Sokratis said. ‘It was my mistake for something simple that I don’t have to do.‘I think this was the problem why we lose the three points.

Lukaku eager to prove worth

first_img Press Association “This year, I have a point to prove first to myself, that I can do it again, and then to Chelsea, to show that I can be number one over there as well. “I had a few talks with the manager (Mourinho) about playing regularly and the importance of it, because I couldn’t afford another season on the bench or maybe playing one time out of three, at my age and especially with the World Cup coming up. “So I spoke with him a few times to see his vision and at a certain point I thought going on loan again was the best thing to do. “It was my choice. I want to play as much as possible. “I don’t want people to just remember the Romelu Lukaku of West Brom and for me to be in the background again.” Asked if he still saw a future for himself at Chelsea, Lukaku said: “I don’t know. “I think if I can do similar to last year, but for a club like Everton and with better statistics, why not? But we’ll see at the end of the season. “It was always my main ambition to go back to Chelsea, but the end of the season is when you can have a balanced view of how things have gone and make a final decision.” “You always need confirmation after a good year,” Lukaku said. “After only one good year, if you then have a down year the next year, people never take you seriously. “I want to become a better player – a much better player, not just the same player as people know from last year. “I hope that at the end of this season people say, ‘Romelu Lukaku is one of the best in this league’.” It had been widely expected Lukaku would feature prominently this season for Chelsea, whom he signed for from Anderlecht in August 2011. But Lukaku says conversations he had with the London outfit’s manager Jose Mourinho about his first-team prospects helped convince him he would be best off going out on loan again. And asked if he felt he had a point to prove, Lukaku said: “Yes, because I think after last year, I deserve a chance – like I did the year before, before I went to West Brom. “I thought I deserved that chance, I went to West Brom on loan and did well. Everton’s new on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku is determined that he will not go down as a one-season wonder in English football. Lukaku emerged as a real force in the Barclays Premier League last term, scoring 17 goals while on loan at West Brom from Chelsea for the campaign. The 20-year-old Belgium international joined the Toffees in a similar deal on transfer deadline day earlier this month and is looking to make a major impact once again in 2013-14. last_img read more


Van Gaal faced with difficult task

first_img United landed in Manchester on Tuesday after completing a near-perfect pre-season tour of the United States. Despite only assuming his position just two days before leaving for the US, Van Gaal racked up victories over the Los Angeles Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Liverpool. “I won’t come with the axe – it’s not like that,” Van Gaal said. “We have to be honest. We have to give advice to the players now at this moment and not at the end of August. Then we can’t change any more and they don’t have a choice. “Of course it’s difficult to say something after two weeks but I think you have to say something.” United fans did not have to wait long to see Van Gaal’s no-nonsense approach. In his first press conference in LA two-and-a-half weeks ago, he criticised United for sanctioning a five-match tour that saw the squad clock up 13,500 air miles. The United boss then criticised £27million signing Luke Shaw for turning up to pre-season out of shape. And in training sessions he openly criticised his players if he thought they were not up to scratch. Van Gaal had some stern words for Wayne Rooney on a couple of occasions, but the England striker has no qualms with the Dutchman’s hard-line approach. “He is a tough but fair manager,” Rooney said. The former Everton striker thinks the new coach has made a big impact at the club. “He has been great,” Rooney added. “Since he has come in he has given us all a different way of looking at football, so it’s been great for us and hopefully that will continue.” Van Gaal has implemented the same 3-4-2-1 formation he used with Holland in the latter stages of the World Cup. That came as something of a surprise given that United only have three senior centre-halves b ut Rooney, who is used to playing in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 system, thinks the new formation is ideal. “It has suited the whole team,” said the 28-year-old, who scored five goals in America. “The manager came in and looked at the players we have and he felt it was best for our team. And obviously the results have proven it.” United’s fifth and final win of pre-season came in the early hours of Tuesday morning when they beat Liverpool 3-1 in Miami to lift the International Champions Cup. Winning the eight-team competition is not the highlight of Van Gaal’s career, nor Rooney’s, but the striker thinks United’s 100 per cent record in pre-season bodes well for the season ahead. “We wanted to win games and play well and we feel we have done that here,” Rooney added. “We’ve won a trophy and we did it by beating Liverpool, which is always nice. “It’s been a good few weeks. We are happy with the work we have done here so we feel we can go home and play well when the season starts.” United confirmed on Tuesday that a deal had been finalised with F K Vojvodina for the transfer of 17-year-old goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic. The 6ft 7in stopper will spend the coming season on loan at the Serbian club before moving to Old Trafford next summer. Press Association Louis van Gaal admits it will not be easy to sign the players he thinks are needed to improve Manchester United. Almost everything went to plan, but the United boss is still not totally content with his squad. The Dutchman has admitted he wants to sign new defenders before the season starts, but he concedes landing his targets will prove hard. “Manchester United shall buy players when we can improve our selection,” the United manager said. “And that is a lot more difficult than you think.” Arsenal’s Thomas Vermaelen and Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels remain Van Gaal’s top targets, although signing the latter is proving hard because the German club have already lost one star this summer in Robert Lewandowski, who joined bitter rivals Bayern Munich. Another priority for Van Gaal is cutting loose the players he deems surplus to requirements. Those who are surely in the most danger include Javier Hernandez, Nani, Shinji Kagawa, Marouane Fellaini and Anderson. Van Gaal will not enjoy telling his unwanted players they have no future at the club, but he will not shirk away from making the changes he feels are necessary either. last_img read more
