Round-Up: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave for LA Galaxy

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will leave for LA Galaxy, Jose Mourinho is still absolutely hacked off, Michael Owen likes a flutter, and Ryan Giggs goes great guns for Paul Pogba.

Jose Mourinho is still absolutely fuming about the state of the Rostov pitch. You'll be surprised to know that UEFA, an organisation that loves corruption but pays barely even a soupcon of lip service against things like racism, do not care at all. If United win tonight, that's fantastic, but if they lose and/or suffer a serious injury because of the pitch, we should all be very excited for our first proper Mourinho huff and puff.

Die hard Manchester United fan, and legend, Ryan Giggs, has gone to town for the club he loves to defend Paul Pogba. He says he's, 'Not brilliant but not bad.' That's the kind of insight that saw him turned down for the current United gig, and then the Swansea job. Still, it's better than whatever Paul Scholes will come out with after he's taken the blanket off his legs in his chair nearest the telly, turned the thermostat down, and complained about his council tax has gone up again, and when are the bins next being changed? Oh, didn't they do recycling last week? Bloody council.

LA Galaxy want Zlatan Ibrahimovic. It would be a shame to see him leave, but he's done his job of raising expectations from those around him. United can afford to replace him, and Wayne Rooney, with two younger options, so there's no need to panic.

How can you be surprised you get a five-match ban for stamping on someone's head? This country.

And a question. When you've tasted the glory of Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid, all the while looking like 'trainee CID', and absolutely devoid of charisma, you wonder what Michael Owen actually enjoys. Betting, maybe?
