‘My Wanyama is going nowhere’- Koeman

PHOTO/PALONDON, December 24- Ronald Koeman has warned Victor Wanyama’s admirers nobody will be leaving Southampton next month.Tottenham failed to prise the midfielder out of St Mary’s in the summer, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was this month forced to deny he is planning a January move. Southampton host the Gunners on Boxing Day, and ahead of that game Koeman has made it clear any bidders will be wasting their time.“They can prepare whatever they like to prepare,” he said. “Don’t spend time trying to buy a player from Southampton because it’s impossible.“They talk about players from Southampton because we have some good players and there is always interest in players. And the ambition of players is about playing Champions League.“We know what we like to do and how we like to do our business. That means in January nobody will leave Southampton.”Saints go into Christmas with just one point from their past five games, and Koeman admits his job could be under threat if that run continues despite the club’s seventh-placed finish last season.“Every manager is under pressure,” he said. “If you sack Jose Mourinho, if you sack Garry Monk from Swansea – then we know.“It’s all about the philosophy of the club, the chairman, and the board. It’s still quiet in Southampton but maybe in one month it can be different.“We know if you are a long time in football what can happen and I’m not worried about that. If it happens, it happens. I do my job, I do my best for the club and do what I have to do, and nothing else.”-By Sky Sports0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Cech Latest: Mourinho hints at possible swap deal

first_img1 Jose Mourinho has warned clubs hoping to sign Petr Cech: If I give you one of mine, you give me one of yours!The Cezch international, who is set for contract talks next week, is being widely linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer, with Arsenal and Manchester United reportedly keen on him, as well as a number of clubs in Europe.Mourinho is keen to keep Cech at Stamford Bridge, but knows he is facing an uphill battle, with the 33-year-old naturally not keen on spending another season as second choice to Thibaut Courtois.But the Portuguese has cheekily suggested he might take one of his rivals’ players if they want his goalkeeper.“Every club that is interested in Petr, I can find a player that I like in that team, too,” Mourinho said at the launch of BT Sport’s European football coverage.He does admit, however, he might be powerless to keep Cech.“My answer [on his future] is not important,” he added. “My answer is not important because the owner is the owner, he is the person with the perspective I admire a lot, respect a lot.“He respects a lot of people who do important things for him.“Since 2004 to 2014-15, ten years of success with the club, ten years of unbelievable behaviour. I will have to accept any decision the owner has.“I’m different. I have the same respect for Petr that everybody at the club has, but my answer would be, no way. If the answer is different I will accept that.” Petr Cech and Jose Mourinho last_img read more
