Can Pellegrino’s Saints Frustrate Anfield Once Again?

Mauricio Pellegrino - Can He Breathe Life into a Dull Southampton Side?

A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

Soon after the confirmation that Manchester United would not be extending the services of 35-year old center-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, my mind raced back to early June last year, when all eyes were on France and the European Championships - and how excited I was at the thought of a certain Swede holding the famous red shirt and smiling at the cameras, exuding the aura of a king arriving at the battlefield he has yet to conquer.
