Sorry Wayne Rooney, Dele Alli is now England's most important player

Former England captain Bryan Robson believes the form of Dele Alli could be key for England's World Cup hopes. In an era where miniscule football stories can be blown hugely out of proportion -- especially during dull international breaks -- it's surprising that no-one seems desperate to discuss the news that England have dropped Wayne Rooney. Rooney, of course, is England's record goalscorer. He is -- or was -- the team's captain, and is only six caps away from equalling Peter Shilton's record of 125. Since his breakthrough in 2003, Rooney has been England's key man for over a decade and his nation's chances...

Paper Talk: United to tie up Perisic deal; Chelsea want Griezmann

Jose Mourinho has been pictured in Croatia and two players have been linked with moves to Man Utd, while Chelsea are chasing Mourinho’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann, all in the papers.

MOURINHO ON BUSINESS IN ZAGREB

Jose Mourinho is in Croatia and believed to be trying to tie up a move for Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.

The Sun report the Man Utd gaffer flew to Zagreb to meet up with “long-time pal and transfer mastermind Predrag Mijatovic”.

Croatian publication Index.hr claim the reason for Mourinho’s visit was to watch Perisic and midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, 24.

Croatia defeated Ukraine 1-0 last night and while Brozovic played, Perisic was not involved.

The Sun though believe Mourinho is trying to seal a deal for Perisic with the help of Mijatovic, who has helped Mourinho get big deals over the line in the past.

Mijatovic apparently played a key role in Real Madrid signing Luka Modric from Tottenham in 2012 and he helped Mourinho land Nemanja Matic in 2014 for Chelsea.

 

CHELSEA MOVE FOR GRIEZMANN

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Man Utd’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann.

The Sun claim they “exclusively revealed that Chelsea are in the race for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann”.

But as far as any more details are concerned that is your lot. The article then goes on to list a possible Chelsea XI for next season which includes Jan Oblak in goal, Leonardo Bonucci, Radja Nainggolan and Griezmann.

Atletico striker Griezmann was yesterday reported to be very close to signing for United with the Manchester Evening News claiming the deal was almost agreed.

The France forward does have a buyout clause which is believed to be £86million and boss Diego Simeone says if that figure is met then he will likely be waving goodbye to the 26-year-old.

Eric Dier talks of relief after anxious phone call to mum

SAMI MOKBEL AND SAM CUNNINGHAM: England's Eric Dier spoke of the anxious phone call made to his mother Louise in the aftermath of Wednesday’s terror attack in Westminster.

Tottenham Hotspur – teamtalk.com 24 Mar 18:10

Dier calls for England support to show more respect

Eric Dier says that time is perfect for England fans to support the team “in the right way” in the wake of the Westminster terrorist attack.

England’s friendly defeat to Germany on Wednesday night was marred by fans booing the German national anthem and singing distasteful songs.

Football Association chairman Greg Clarke described the chanting in Dortmund as “inappropriate, disrespectful and disappointing”.

The incidents came on the same day a terror attack in London which left four pedestrians and a police officer dead.

The FA is planning a number of tributes to the casualties, with black armbands, a minute’s silence, a reef-laying ceremony and the Wembley arch being coloured red and white throughout the game – which will also be attended by a number of distinguished guests.

And Dier, set to pick up his 17th cap in the game, wants supporters to show they can be portrayed in a positive light after such a turbulent week.

“In general, the fans have been fantastic with us wherever we go,” he said.

“The support they give us is always amazing. But all we ask is that they support us in the right way and they’re respectful.

“Because of the dreadful things that happened in London we just hope the fans are very respectful of that and us as players we’re going to respect everything in the right way and we’re going to do everything to honour the people who passed away this week.”

The 23-year-old also revealed his first thoughts on hearing the news of the attack in Westminster was to call home from Germany and speak to his mother – who works close to the scene.

“It’s horrible,” he said when asked how the attack affected him.

“You never want to see things like that, especially where you live. First thing I did was ring my mum because she works not too far away from there. It’s not very nice.”

Dier was in the England side which played France in November 2015, just days after an attack on the French capital.

It was an emotional night for all involved and one that has stayed with the Tottenham man ever since.

Asked about football’s ability to unite, Dier added: “I think it’s massive.

“I was at the France game after (the) Paris (attack) and I thought that was an amazing show of unity. It was quite emotional to be a part of.

“I think it showed how football can bring everyone together. Hopefully on Sunday we can do the same.”

New England boss Gareth Southgate has said he will consider not naming a permanent captain and rather work on a squad-by-squad basis, with Dier admitting leading his country is something he is aiming to achieve.

“It’s an ambition of mine,” he said.

“I would love to one day be able to do that. It would be a real honour for me and I’d like to work towards (it) but that’s something the manager decides.

“I think I have always had qualities a captain may have and I think I can do that job. But it’s up to the manager.”

Tottenham boss Pochettino meets with Barcelona supremo

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino held a meeting with Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu this week, but it’s not believed to have related to the head coach role at the Nou Camp.

Press Association Sport understands Pochettino and Bartomeu met at a restaurant in the city, where the Spurs boss still owns a house from his days playing for Espanyol.

Pochettino has been linked with taking over at the Nou Camp after Luis Enrique earlier this month announced his decision to step down in the summer.

Spurs, however, are claiming they were aware of the meeting and insist the pair have long been close friends.

Kolasinac agent rubbishes rumours of Man City talks

Sead Kolasinac has not held talks with Manchester City over a possible summer free transfer from Schalke, the player’s agent has confirmed.

The 23-year-old left back is out of contract at the Veltins Arena in the summer and has so far failed to agree an extension with the Bundesliga club.

That has alerted several clubs across Europe, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, AC Milan, and Juventus all being credited with an interest.

However, in an interview with Bild, Kolasinac’s agent, Gordon Stipic, denied reports of early talks with Man City.

“That’s nonsense,” he said. “There have been no talks with Pep Guardiola.”
