Carlisle United Ready to Offer Mark Gillespie a New Contract, Says Keith Curle

Carlisle United Ready to Offer Mark Gillespie a New Contract, Says Keith Curle

Carlisle United manager Keith Curle says that the club are expecting offers for goalkeeper Mark Gillespie in January.


Hence, they are preparing to offer a new contract for the 24-year-old, who has already been scouted by a number of clubs this season. While the manager says that he would like to complete negotiations and extend the player’s contract before the end of December, the finances at the club will have a major role to play.Curle is aware about the interest in Gillespie largely because those who have attended the games to watch Carlisle United players are goalkeeping coaches.

Gillespie is an attractive option for clubs across the English league considering that he will be available on a free transfer in the summer. Rather than lose him for nothing, Carlisle United are likely to accept a small compensation in the January transfer window.

Manchester United turned to consistent Debator

Manchester United turned to consistent Debator

Manchester United has turned into a consistent topic of discussion for football fans as there is always something going on involving Old Trafford or Louis van Gaal.

A few days ago Sam Allardyce critiqued Louis van Gaal for his long ball playing style that the Dutchman has been implementing in recent times and the criticism continued on when the former Manchester United player Paul Scholes called his labeled his former team as ‘’miserable’’.

There aren’t many fans that agree to the decisions that the Dutchman Louis van Gaal has made since taking over the club but despite all of the harsh and negative feedback that the experienced coach has received lately, he has somehow pushed Manchester United in the 3rd spot of the Premier League.

The fastest man alive, Usain Bolt has not been shy in revealing to the public that he is a fan of Manchester United and everything that the club represents when it comes to football but even the Jamaican sprint runner does not agree with the things that have been happening with the English club.

Liverpool hoping to thrash out deal for Moreno

Liverpool hoping to thrash out deal for Moreno

Premier League giants Liverpool are pushing ahead with their pursuit of Sevilla left back Alberto Moreno as they look to secure the signing of the Spanish full back as early as possible.

The Merseyside giants have allowed Iago Aspas join Sevilla on loan for the season and are hoping it will be enough to clinch the deal for Moreno.

The 22 year old left back remains the first choice target for manager Brendan Rodgers although the club has not been able to agree a fee for the Spanish international. The UEFA Europa League winners already rejected an offer of around £ 16 million from the Premier League runners up at the end of May and are holding out for a fee well over £ 20 million.

JOHNSON TAKES AIM

JOHNSON TAKES AIM

Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has taken a swipe at his former manager Jose Mourinho by saying that Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers is much better than the Portuguese. Johnson was one of the first signings made by Chelsea after the arrival of Roman Abramovich as the owner of the club. However, he did not last long at the club after the arrival of Paulo Ferreira for £ 13 million. After subsequent spells at the likes of Portsmouth, Johnson has been playing for Liverpool for the last few years. He has established himself as one of the first choice not only for Liverpool, but also for England as well.

In the last few years, he has developed a reputation for being one of the best attacking right backs in the country. Johnson says that his current form is largely thanks to the faith shown by manager Rodgers, who has been getting a lot of praise from various quarters for the good work done by Liverpool this season. After missing out on Champions League football for several years now, Liverpool are in a position to even win the title, which would be their first since 1990. Johnson says that Mourinho never kept his promises, but concedes that the Portuguese remains as one of the best managers in the world.

“It was difficult for me under Jose at Chelsea because there was a moment when he said I deserved to play on merit. He said if I played well in the next game I would play the week after. I got man of the match so he couldn’t drop me. Then in the next game he said the same thing and I got man of the match again. He didn’t play me in that game and from that moment I just lost it and thought, ‘Well, how am I meant to respect you now? It’s just finished’,” said Johnson.
