The Championship automatic playoff places look like it could go down to the wire with three teams closely placed at the top. Norwich City, Leeds City and Sheffield United are separated by two points on the league table in what is the tightest promotion race in years.
Stoke City midfielder Darren Fletcher was full of praise for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the Norwegian’s tactical master class helped Manchester United overcome Tottenham Hotspur in a heated clash at Wembley last time out.
Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher wants to see more from Paul Pogba. He said that the French midfielder has the potential to be a world class player but unfortunately he is not showing any of it at Manchester United.
Darren Fletcher, the Stoke City midfielder was highly impressed with the performance displayed by John McGinn, the Aston Villa star against Belgium and Tottenham Hotspur. McGinn was featured in Scotland during the friendly international match played at Hampden Park against Belgium last Friday. The midfielder showed his best performance despite the fault at the opening goal for the Red Devils.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has identified Darren Fletcher as one of his experienced targets this summer, as per reports. Since Stoke City have been relegated to the lower league, the player is looking to exit the club.
Former Manchester United man Darren Fletcher is hailing his current boss at Stoke City Mark Hughes for helping him become a better player.
Fletcher says Hughes reminds him of retired Premier League coaching legend Sir Alex Ferguson.
The ex Red Devils man spent 20 years at Old Trafford, where he lifted five Premier League titles and a Champions League title. He moved to West Brom back in 2015 having been declared excess to requirements. He says under Hughes, the demands have helped him get better.
“I really do see similarities between what I am being asked to do here to what I did under Sir Alex Ferguson for so many years, which is maybe why I felt so at ease since coming into the club during the summer. Obviously Mark has played under Sir Alex too so maybe it comes from that.”
