Manchester United Double winner Paul Parker says his old club should focus everything on the Europa League.

Parker believes the club must target Europa League glory this season as a route into next term's Champions League.

United have already secured qualification to the knockout stages of the competition.

Parker told Gambling.com: “Winning the Europa League is the only way United will get back into the Champions League next season.

“I'd like to see them improve the squad in January but, realistically, there are far better sides than Manchester United in the Premier League and that's not going to change much in one transfer window."

Wolves whiz Adama Traore:  Mali and Spain still options

Wolves whiz Adama Traore: Mali and Spain still options

Wolves whiz Adama Traore has not yet committed his international future to Spain.

The Express & Star says he has not ruled out playing for Mali after withdrawing from the Spain squad due to injury.

Speaking after the 2-1 Premier League win over Villa and before he was forced to withdraw from the squad for Spain's Euro 2020 qualifiers due to a knock, Traore's focus was on his own personal growth.

He said: “I'm happy the country called me, definitely. I have Mali too, they called me as well. I'm happy with the situation, but I think the important thing is that I keep growing and after the international team will come.

“For me, the important thing is that they trust me, the international teams, Mali and Spain.

“I am just focused on trying to grow and give my best."

West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini suffers new injury blow

West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini suffers new injury blow

West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini is out for the remainder of the year with a broken collarbone.

Lanzini will be sidelined for the rest of 2019 after suffering a fractured collarbone in the 3-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday.

The Argentine schemer fell awkwardly after being fouled by Ashley Westwood.

The West Ham playmaker has had rotten luck with injuries, having missed over six months in 2018 following a cruciate ligament injury that ruled him out of the World Cup in Russia.

Taison: I was crying tears of ‘indignation and helplessness’

Taison: I was crying tears of ‘indignation and helplessness’

Shakhtar Donetsk captain Taison insists he will never remain silent in the face of such an “inhuman and despicable act” after suffering alleged racist abuse during his side’s match against Dynamo Kiev.

Taison was sent off after reacting to alleged racism from spectators during Shakhtar’s 1-0 home victory in the Ukrainian Premier League on Sunday.

The Brazil international made an offensive gesture towards the away fans and then kicked the ball into their section of the stand before the referee led all the players off the field in the 77th minute.

Video footage shows Taison and Brazilian team-mate Dentinho leaving the field in tears after both had allegedly been targeted, while they were consoled by several Dynamo players.

Taison was shown the red card by the referee immediately after the match – played at Shakhtar’s temporary home at the OSK Metalist stadium in Kharkiv – had resumed.


The 31-year-old midfielder has said he was crying tears of “indignation, repudiation and helplessness” after the incident but promised he would not stop fighting against racism.

He wrote on his Instagram account on Monday morning: “I love my race, I fight for colour, whatever I do is for us, for love…I will never shut up in the face of such an inhuman and despicable act!

“My tears were of indignation, repudiation and helplessness, helplessness that I could do nothing at that moment! But we are taught very early to be strong and to fight! Fight for our rights and for equality!

“My role is to fight, to beat my chest, to lift my head and keep fighting always.

“In a racist society, it is not enough not to be racist, we must be anti-racist! Football needs more respect, the world needs more respect!

“Thank you all for the support messages!”

 

Shakhtar condemned the alleged racism in a statement after the match, while their goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov admits the players were left shocked by the incident and said he had never experienced anything like it before.

The 35-year-old, who has won 92 caps for Ukraine, said on his club’s website: “Everyone is somewhat shocked by what has happened in the stands. I’ve seen that for the first time ever. I’ve never thought that people can behave like that.

“We discussed the incident with the Dynamo players in the tunnel. They also have representatives of other nationalities in the team.

“I saw that (Dynamo midfielder Gerson) Rodrigues was also shocked, because this, as it turns out, concerned him as well. The referee had said he would stop the game if this happened again.”

Dynamo said in a statement that the club would not tolerate racism and that they would co-operate fully with any investigation.

They also added: “We consider hasty the allegation of a pre-determined guilt of the fans, when the investigation into the circumstances of this case has not even begun.”
