Jurgen Klopp gets angry and ended four of his players contact……

In-demand Gent striker Gift Oban has spoken of his desire to move to the Premier League – but has emphatically shot down reports of a move to Arsenal with a staggering criticism of Mikel Arteta’s side.

The 20-year-old Nigerian star is enjoying an excellent season for the Belgian Pro League side, notching 19 goals in 19 matches this season. That tally includes five goals in six Europa Conference League matches, including a four-minute hat-trick against Istanbul Basaksehir on March 15.

Gent’s run in the competition was ultimately ended at the quarter-final stage by West Ham, who have gone on to reach the final. However, the striker’s five goals from three play-off matches has ensured the Belgian side will be back in Europe next season.

However, it seems like they may have to make do without the services of Oban following claims he is a target for a host of Premier League clubs.

Indeed, Friday’s Transfer Gossip claimed he is being sized up both Manchester United and Tottenham, with the pair both watching his progress.

Any deal though would not come cheap with the Belgians likely to demand a huge fee for the 5ft 10in dynamo.

However, amid claims he could be on the move to the Premier League, Oban has spoken out on his transfer chances.

And while he admits a liking to Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City, he appears to have emphatically ruled out a move to Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta’s side will likely finish this season off as Premier League runners-up. After leading the table for so long, many seem to see second as a failure for the Gunners. And it seems Oban is among them.

Oban keen on Man Utd, Liverpool – but not Arsenal

Opening up on his future and a possible move to the Premier League, Oban spoke to Het Laatste Nieuws.

Asked about what his ‘craziest football dream’ is, he replied: “Playing in a big league!”

Discussing where that could be, he added: “At a club where I feel comfortable and where I play. The Premier League is my ultimate dream. Manchester United, Liverpool or Manchester City.”

One club linked with his signature is Arsenal, but Oban has mocked the Gunners for their trophy failings.

“I don’t really like Arsenal that much – it’s like they don’t want to win titles,” he joked.

“They play and sell players – that’s it. I want to go somewhere where they win prizes. At Real Madrid they don’t have time for tiki-taka, there they just grab titles.”

Quite whether he will secure a Premier League move this summer remains to be seen. Liverpool and Manchester City certainly look well blessed for strikers anyway, while United’s ambitions will see them targeting more experienced names.

Arsenal could look to bolster their attack, though. But after his criticism of Arteta’s side, the player’s comments are unlikely to have gone down too well at Emirates Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp is at it again

Jurgen Klopp has suggested that he won’t pay the £75,000 fine imposed by the FA until he knows that it is going to a good cause!

Since when did the guilty party get to decide their own punishment?

When they are manager of one of the national media’s favourite football teams of course!

The good old BBC giving Jurgen Klopp plenty of column inches on their website to speak his mind on the subject.

He then goes on to ridicule the one match touchline ban, saying that it will make absolutely no difference, as he will be in constant touch with coach Vitor Matos and assistant Pep Lijnders.

What exactly do you have to do with people like Jurgen Klopp, who think that rules are things for other people?

Maybe in this case you have to look at making the ban effective, so that he can neither watch the match or communicate with his coaching team or players.

Not sure what happens now, but in the old days, convicted football hooligans used to have to report to a police station on match days.

Perhaps the FA need to set up a sin bin for naughty managers, because clearly at the moment, Jurgen Klopp is laughing in their faces, at having been put on the naughty step.

The normal sentence for anti-social behaviour is Community Service: perhaps a 100 hours of cleaning canals might help in some way to dampen down his rampant ego.

Let’s hope that Aston Villa can wipe that smug grin off the face of Jurgen Klopp this Saturday afternoon.
