Man Utd news - Carrick: Squad must fill Scholes void, Fergie takes Sunderland swipe, Diouf loan exit

Carrick: Squad must fill Scholes void.


Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes the whole of the United squad must chip together to fill the void left by Paul Scholes’s retirement, according to the Guardian.


Scholes hung up his boots this summer after a glittering 17 year career at Old Trafford, leading Sir Alex Ferguson to speculate that he would be impossible to replace.


Ferguson has opted against moves for Luka Modric, Wesley Sneijder and Samir Nasri to take over the Scholes role, leading Carrick to suggest the team would have to compensate collectively for the loss.


“Paul bring’s so much to the team, he’s a world class player. When we lost Cristiano Ronaldo a few years ago people didn’t think we’d get over it but different players step up - maybe it’s not one player but we share the responsibility.”

Fergie takes Sunderland swipe.


Sir Alex Ferguson has taken a swipe at Sunderland for Darron Gibson’s failed move to the Stadium of Light.


The Republic of Ireland midfielder was widely expected to be the third United player to join the Black Cats following the arrival of Wes Brown and John O’Shea. However, after the two clubs agreed a fee the move collapsed after Sunderland could not agree personal terms with the player.


It has now left Gibson in the cold at United and without a viable club to move to leaving Ferguson to fume, “He was on the point of going when somewhere along the line Sunderland moved the goalposts“, quoted Clubcall, “From what i can gather, they gave him an offer and then changed it. That annoyed Darron and I think he’s quite right.”


Diouf loan exit.


United forward Mame Biram Diouf is being lined up for a season-long loan move to Blackpool, according to Click Manchester.


The Senegalese international has failed to force himself into the Old Trafford first team reckoning but has been involved during the Reds pre-season tour of the United States.


Diouf has only featured for United six times since arriving at the start of 2010 but impressed during a loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last term.


The 23-year-old is expected to join the Seasiders on an initial loan with a view to a permanent move as boss Ian Holloway reshapes his playing staff following relegation from the Premier League.
