  • Solskjaer hopeful over new Man Utd contract for Martial

    first_imgShare on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer They faced each other several times in the FA Cup during that period, with United winning two semi-finals, in 1999 and 2004, and Arsenal victorious in both a 2003 fifth-round tie and the 2005 final.The 1999 semi-final has become part of United folklore, with Ryan Giggs scoring a memorable individual goal to win a replay at Villa Park as the club went on to win the treble of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup.Solskjaer said: “It was fantastic. That’s the one fierce football rivalry of my years here as a player.“We were always the closest rivals. They won the double, we won the treble. The games were just fantastic.“We had a great team, and they had a very good team. They had the French connection with Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires and Emmanuel Petit. There were some tackles flying in between the two teams. They were fantastic games.”Solskjaer described the disappearance of Cardiff striker Emiliano Sala as “tragic news”.The Argentine forward, signed from Nantes, was on board a plane from France to south Wales that disappeared from radar on Monday just north of Alderney, in the Channel Islands.Solskjaer, who managed Cardiff between January and September 2014, said: “It’s tragic news. When you wake up, you hope to read good news but the more time it goes the less likely it is.“It’s just tragic for the boy and the family and everyone involved and associated. We’re just hoping and praying there’ll be some good news.”center_img Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes Anthony Martial will agree a new contract with Manchester United in the coming weeks as the club look to tie down a clutch of top players.France forward Martial and goalkeeper David de Gea are both out of contract at the end of next season after United triggered 12-month extension options shortly before Christmas.The club are in talks with both players as well as forward Juan Mata, whose contract expires this coming June.Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, is known to be keen to get the futures of all three players sorted out while he works on appointing a permanent manager before the start of next season.Martial is understood to be close to agreeing a five-year contract, while Spain international De Gea has made it clear he wants to remain at Old Trafford.Solskjaer, United’s caretaker manager for the rest of this season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December, has received indications that strong progress has been made with Martial, De Gea and Mata.“I think the club’s making progress but I leave that to the right people to do that,” he said. “I don’t know really how far we are away from it but hopefully we’re going to have some good news in the coming weeks.”Solskjaer, who has won his first seven matches in charge, will attempt to extend that run on Friday, when his side visit Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup.Reports in the British media have suggested that United have rejected an approach from Arsenal to take Eric Bailly on loan for the rest of the season but Solskjaer said he was not aware of any approach for the Ivory Coast defender.– Rivalry –Solskjaer is looking forward to facing Arsenal, a team with whom United enjoyed a fierce rivalry during his time as a player at Old Trafford, between 1996 and 2007.last_img read more

Patel was one of a handful of United States batsmen that got starts, but failed to carry on, leading the way with a circumspect 39 from 80 balls.Monank Patel scored 27, Steven Taylor made 22 and Alex Amsterdam got 21. In –form leg-spinner Damion Jacobs was the pick of the Hurricanes bowlers with 3-40 from 10 overs, while Windies A all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall, Jeremiah Louis and Chesney Hughes supported with two wickets apiece.In a fire-cracker over at the Three W’s Oval, in the second Group B contest, Carlos Brathwaite played another captain’s knock to lead the CCC Marooners to a breezy 7-wicket victory over his country team, Barbados Pride.Despite a star-studded team, the Pride, who remain without a win in three matches, felt the brunt of Brathwaite who struck three fours and three sixes in an unbeaten, even 50 from 31 balls, as the Marooners successfully chased 175 for victory.Shayne MoseleyHe shared a 90-run – unbroken – fourth-wicket partnership with Jonathan Drakes, who stroked 41 from 46 balls, including four boundaries. Marooners had a strong start with openers Kyle Corbin and Kjorn Ottley piling on 70 before they were dismissed and the home team stumbled to 88 for three in the 20th over.The Windies T20 skipper then joined Drakes as they carried the Marooners over the finish line in the 32nd over. There was neither substance nor stability from the Pride, after they were sent in to bat, except for a period when Kevin Stoute joined left-hand opener Shayne Moseley and they put on 40 for the fourth wicket.Moseley made 49 from 87 balls to lead the way, Stoute supported with 37, Shamar Springer got 22 and Windies pacer Miguel Cummins made a useful 20. Brathwaite was the pick of the Marooners’ bowlers returning figures of 3-21 from 10 overs and Akeem Jordan took 3-36 from 9.2 overs. Action continues across Barbados with more exciting matches.
