Ben Woodburn has returned to Liverpool from Sheffield United for treatment on an ankle injury. The forward, currently on-loan with the Blades, suffered the damage during a training session and will now be assessed at Melwood. Ben Woodburn has nine caps for Wales It is not yet clear how long Woodburn will be out for, however the blow comes as the latest setback in a so-far disappointing season. The 19-year-old has struggled to break into the starting XI at Bramall Lane as the Blades continue to exceed expectations in the Championship. He has made just two starts in all competitions since joining on a season-long loan during the summer, while appearing as a substitute a further six times.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has announced he will be staying at LA Galaxy for another season. Speculation had been rife that the 37-year-old would return to former club AC Milan on a temporary loan spell with the MLS season over. MLZ Im not done with you yet pic.twitter.com/1F68siOV16 — Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) December 17, 2018 Milan had been hopeful of securing a loan similar to the deal that was reached between the clubs in 2009 for David Beckham. In typically dramatic fashion, the maverick striker posted a  video on his Twitter page to his 5.5 million followers with the caption: ‘MLZ I’m not done with you yet.’ The former Sweden international has become a fans’ favourite at LA Galaxy having scored 22 goals in 27 appearances since joining from Manchester United. Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted 22 goals for LA Galaxy last season The 2019 MLS season does not start until March after La Galaxy’s season ended in October when they missed out on the play-offs, losing 3-2 to Houston Dynamo. He would have not been the first big name to complete a move away to Europe during the MLS off-season with the likes of Beckham (LA Galaxy to AC Milan in 2009, 2010), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy to Everton in 2010 and 2012), Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy to Aston Villa in 2012) and Jermain Defoe (Toronto FC to Tottenham in 2014) pursuing short-term deals.

CHRIS SUTTON has fired a Europa League warning to Celtic by insisting Valencia are BETTER than Man United. But the former striker claims the La Liga side aren’t the Spanish giants of old. Chris Sutton rates Valencia above Man United Celts have been drawn against Valencia in the last 32 of the Europa League. The Mestalla outfit finished third in their Champions League group behind Juventus and Man United.

TAM McMANUS reckons his old Hibs team-mate Scott Brown should’ve seen red in yesterday’s clash at Easter Road. The Celtic skipper was booked for lunging into a tackle on Hibees goalscorer Vykintas Slivka in the first half. Tam McManus during his Easter Road days Broony sends Hibs midfielder Slivka crashing to the ground But McManus, who played with Broony at Hibs, was in no doubt the Hoops star got away with one. He tweeted: “Broony my mate but 100% that’s a red card in this day and age. Lucky bhoy.” Brown caught Slivka late, missing the ball and clattering the Lithuanian with both of his legs off of the ground. But SunSport columnist Michael Stewart – speaking on BBC Scotland’s Sportscene – thought the right decision was made by referee Don Robertson as he brandished a yellow card.
