Welcome to Friday footy fans! We have tons of EPL news for you as the season draws ever closer. From Rio Ferdinand to RVP’s move (finally!) We’ve got all the headlines you need in today’s Daily Kick Around!
English Premier League
John Terry might have gotten off the hook, but it looks like Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, will not. The FA has fined the English international for comments he made on his twitter account during the Terry trial.
It looks like it’s the end for Clint Dempsey. Reports say that he wants to leave Fulham and apparently move to Liverpool.
In more Dempsey news, the USMNT favorite was also fined by his current club for missing a Fulham training and refusing to play in Fulham’s game against Norwich City. Maybe he was trying to make a statement? #FreeClint
The biggest news to come out of the EPL this past week would definitely have to be the move of Robin Van Persie to Manchester United. But he won’t be alone in leaving Arsenal. It seems Alex Song is also on the way out to Spanish giants Bacelona.
With Van Persie moving to Manchester United, it seems like Chicharito will be on the bench, as United’s 4th choice striker. As a result, rumor has it that Chelsea has approached United to sign the young Mexican striker.
EPL and La Liga will finally start this weekened. However, many people might not get to watch La Liga kick off. In the past it was shown on Gol tv or ESPN Deportes, it has now moved to BeinSport, a channel that not many people have, only people with Dish or Direct tv will be able to watch. Of course, there’s always streams, though most people will agree, that’s not always the best option.
