Pittodrie or Parkhead, the expectations remain same
Highland League club Wick Academy will announce their new manager this weekend – but Davie Kirkwood is not set for a return to Harmsworth Park.
The 50-year-old, who was Wick manager from 2011 to 2012 before moving to Brora Rangers, had been linked with the vacant position following Gordon Connelly’s departure last month.
But Kirkwood did not apply for the position and chairman James Innes said: “We hope to make an announcement this weekend.”
Rooney at Old Trafford
Wayne Rooney will be welcomed when he returns to Old Trafford tomorrow, according to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
England’s record goalscorer left United to return to boyhood club Everton this summer after 13 successful years with the Red Devils.
He returns to the club where he scored a record 253 goals in 559 appearances.
Mourinho expects the Old Trafford faithful to show the 31-year-old the appreciation he deserves.
Koeman is worried man
A worried Everton manager Ronald Koeman will hold a meeting with his players and will urge experienced players such as Wayne Rooney to drag them out of their rut.
The Toffees have lost three games in a row, the most recent of which was Thursday’s 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the Europa League when Koeman publicly put the onus on himself.
Koeman said: “I think it’s the time for the experienced players to stand up. I’m worried with what I saw on Thursday.”
