Liverpool News Roundup


Liverpool are not expecting any deadline day bids to buy the club

• Kenneth Huang and Yahya Kirdi have yet to make an offer
Tom Hicks and George Gillett could be hit by penalty charges

Sources close to the process confirmed today that no firm offers, with the required proof of funds, have been received, and it is not thought likely that any will be delivered tomorrow. That means Liverpool's owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, will be hit with another £2.5m, the penalty fee they are being charged by the Royal Bank of Scotland for every week the club is not sold.

Imposed on Hicks's and Gillett's Liverpool holding company, Kop, as part of the refinancing last April of £237m in loans from RBS, the £2.5m weekly penalties will, according to sources close to the arrangement, amount to an additional £60m if the club is not sold by 6 October, when the loan expires. That would mean RBS will have racked up more than £200m in interest and fees since it loaned Hicks and Gillett £185m to buy Liverpool in February 2007.

RBS would not confirm the £2.5m or £60m figures, but did acknowledge penalty fees are part of the loan arrangement. The accumulating fees are charged to Hicks's and Gillett's holding company, and will become due for repayment by the owners if and when the club is finally sold.

200m in interest payments from Gillett and HIcks!  Can you imagine what we could have done with that money instead?  Players, a good chunk of a stadium, it's enough to make you cry...

Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists: I want to join the Premier League but not yet

 
 


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to rule out a move to the Barclays Premier League one day - but admits he has no intention of quitting Barcelona at the moment.

The Sweden striker joined the Catalan giants last July from Inter Milan with Samuel Eto'o moving in the other direction in what was the second most expensive transfer in football history at around £60million.

However as Sportsmail revealed earlier this summer, the 28-year-old was later offered to Chelsea and Manchester City as Barca looked to sell the player just 12 months later after mixed reviews at the Nou Camp.

But although flattered to be linked with both clubs, Ibrahimovic, who scored 16 goals in 29 games, claims he is happy in Spain.

'The whole summer, it has been a new club every day,' said Ibrahimovic, as he prepares for Sweden's friendly against Scotland on Wednesday.

'I'm very happy there is an interest in me but I have four years more with Barcelona and I will not leave Barcelona because I play with the best team in the world.

'To play in England one day - absolutely. I feel I can give much more and I can still develop. You never know what happens in football, in 24 hours a lot of things can change.'

Sweden coach Erik Hamren claims he was impressed by the efforts of his star man for Barca last term and is thrilled he agreed to return to the national fold.

Ibrahimovic retired from international football following Sweden's failure to qualify for the World Cup but is back to boost their chances of qualifying for Euro 2012.

Hamren said: 'It's tough to say he had an up-and-down season because in my opinion, he had a good season in his first year at Barcelona.'

Bébé the street kid now living the dream at Manchester United


When the news broke on Tuesday night that Sir Alex Ferguson had bought yet another striker, the reaction of many Manchester United supporters was remarkably similar to when the signing of Javier Hernández was announced in April. Sometimes there is no use pretending and, in the case of Bébé, even the sharpest and most cosmopolitan football minds were at a loss to produce a single anecdote or make sense of how a footballer who previously had no Wikipedia site, registered with a club in Portugal's third division only five weeks ago, had suddenly arrived at Old Trafford in a whirlwind £7.4m deal.

A few months since Hernández's signing, the Mexican has already demonstrated United's scouting staff may have discovered one of those players who make all the frustrations of management worthwhile. In the coming months we will discover whether the 20-year-old Bébé will come to be regarded in a similar way. Equally, there are enough examples at Old Trafford – Dong Fangzhou, Manucho, even Diego Forlán – to realise it can easily go the other way. All we can be certain of is the two strikers recruited as back-up for Wayne Rooney tell the story of how football closes divides.

tevez and verón talk about maradona

"Maradona said something he didn't respect"



After Argentina's painful elimination from the World Cup 2010 and the drama surrounding the exit of Maradona that followed, some players decided to instantly come out and speak their minds, while others preferred to think their words before answering any questions.

Such was the case of Juan Sebastián Verón, who recently broke the silence and said that he was very hurt for not being a part of the team in the World Cup, pointing out that Maradona said something to him that he later on didn't respect.

"Grondona didn't do what he said, and I'm with Diego"



Carlos Tevez, meanwhile, was a bit harsher with his words, as it is now usual for him, and pointed his guns to Julio Grondona, president of AFA.

"I'm surprised, many things were said in this time and many promises were broken. After the game with Germany, Grondona said that Diego could do whatever he wanted in the NT."

- But Maradona isn't coach anymore.

"Exactly. I don't know what happened with Diego. What I do know is that after we lost 4-0 to the Germans, around 40 minutes later, everyone was in the dressing rooms, and after a talk between Diego and Grondona, the president told us that, that Diego could do whatever he wanted as coach of the NT."

- But that wasn't so.

"Well, AFA's presidence isn't what we all expected."

Theelba interview



The first thing that strikes you, other than – no kidding – the darkest eyes you have ever seen, is how small he is, almost Lilliputian. When Roberto Mancini paraded his first four summer signings at a press conference last week he said he had brought in Yaya Touré, Aleksandar Kolarov and Jérôme Boateng, in part, because of their power and size. Then he turned to David Silva, sitting to his right, put his arm around him and gave him a reassuring squeeze. "Maybe not David," he said, "but this a fantastic footballer. You know, I wanted to sign this guy five years ago for Internazionale. He has kept me waiting."

Wise words from a wise man

Premier League squad rule 'a disaster', says Arsenal's Arsène Wenger
• Arsenal manager claims limit will hit quality and global appeal
• Better coaching not 'rubbish rule' would benefit England team


Arsène Wenger has attacked the Premier League's 25-man squad rule, condemning the legislation as "a disaster for this country", and warned there will be serious repercussions on the quality and global appeal of the top flight.

The Arsenal manager said the decision to limit senior squads to no more than 25, including eight homegrown players trained at a club in England or Wales for three years before the season in which they became 21, will see the transfer market stagnate and expose more players and agents as mercenaries. The Premier League hopes the rule will see managers turning to youth and academy graduates, ultimately to benefit the national team. Wenger called the move "a joke".

Neymar Close to Chelsea Deal



At the moment Neymar is impatient with reporters who asked about a proposal from Chelsea to sign him, denying that he had received an offer, his agent, Wagner Ribeiro, detailing the terms of what was offered to the family of the player for the club run by Russian Roman Abramovich. The agent has confirmed it is in America with the father of Neymar, Neymar dos Santos Silva, where, last Monday, he dined with representatives of the English club.
The agent states that in terms of projection of career and of course financial, the best alternative to Neymar is to accept the British offer.

"If Santos are only to give a raise to the Neymar it's useless. He needs projection in his career. We want him to be elected best player in the world," said in an interview with Radio Globo.
When talking about salary increases for Neymar, the agent is referring to a meeting there next Tuesday, at Vila Belmiro, between parents and the board of the player from Santos. The Alvinegro want to submit a career plan for the youngster to be able gain projection even without leaving Brazil. Ribeiro, however, does not believe in this.
"The possibility that Neymar be chosen the best in the world playing in Brazil is zero. We have the best players but we do not have a championship level. Now, who will decide everything is the boy with his family."
