David Moyes spent Monday locked in crisis talks with his backroom team as the pressure mounts on the under-fire Manchester United manager

Moyes' standing reached a new low on Sunday after the champions were humiliated by Liverpool at Old Trafford. Two penalties from Steven Gerrard and a late Luis Suarez strike condemned United to their ninth loss of the league campaign and left them a staggering 14 points adrift of fourth placed Manchester City, who have two games in hand, and Champions League qualification.

Moyes responded to this latest setback by holding crunch talks with members of his coaching team at the club’s Carrington base on Monday, hoping to create a siege mentality and mastermind a Champions League comeback against Olympiakos.

The United boss has presided over a wretched season that has seen his side go out of both domestic cup competitions against teams currently among the bottom six in the top flight, while United’s league campaign is now restricted to scrapping with his old club for a Europa League place.

The Scot has spent close to £65 million on two new players, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata, both of whom have struggled to make any sort of positive impression since moving to Old Trafford.

Indeed, both expensive signings failed to complete the 90 minutes against Liverpool, after which Moyes admitted he was finding the job of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson “harder” than he had anticipated. 
The fixture list, however, does not afford Moyes any semblance of respite. After United host Olympiakos on Wednesday they then travel to West Ham on Saturday evening before the Manchester derby against City the following Wednesday

Mourinho: One day Drogba will return to Chelsea

The Ivorian left Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2012 having won the club's first Champions League trophy and his former manager believes he will come back in the future
Mourinho: One day Drogba will return to Chelsea

Jose Mourinho believes Didier Drogba will return to Chelsea one day as the Ivorian prepares to take on his former club with Galatasaray on Tuesday evening.

Drogba will take the field at Stamford Bridge for the first time since leaving the Blues in the summer of 2012, immediately after scoring the winning penalty to clinch the club's first Champions League triumph.

The Ivorian's feats have established him as one of Chelsea's greatest ever players, and Mourinho thinks he will return to the club in some capacity in the future.

When asked whether he could see Drogba coming back, the Portuguese told reporters: "That's not for me [to decide]. That's for Chelsea [to decide]. I think it has to happen one day. 

"When? I don't know. As a player, as a coach, as an ambassador? Next year, in four to five years, in 10 years? I don't know. But when a person represents so much to a club and when a club represents so much to a person I think he has to be welcomed back.

"Undoubtedly he's one of the most important players of the history of this club. That's not a doubt. 

"All Chelsea supporters agree with that. We don't say the most important one because that's not fair for other people that was in the same level and in the same generation. 
"Is he the same player at 36 than he was at 26? I think nobody is but he is one of the best strikers in the world. That's for sure.

Wayne Rooney has called on the "brilliant" Manchester United fans to get behind the team when they take on Olympiakos in Wednesday's crucial Champions League clash.

United must overturn a two-goal deficit from the first match in order to reach the quarter-finals but are still reeling from Sunday's 3-0 humiliation by bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Writing on his official Facebook page, Rooney thanked United supporters for sticking by the team in spite of the defeat and called on them to make their voices heard again on Wednesday.

"[Sunday] was one of the worst days I've had in football and was hard to take," he admitted. 

"Having said that the fans were brilliant right until the end under difficult circumstances so I would like to thank them for that. 

"We need to move on as we have a big game on Wednesday, if the fans can repeat an atmosphere like Sunday then we will have a good chance of going through. Thanks again for all your support."

Defeat to Liverpool has all but ended United's hopes of finishing in the top four, meaning they will have to win the Champions League to ensure their participation next season

Extra Time: Drunk Manchester United fan calls police to demand Ferguson talks

The supporter wanted to speak to the former manager about the United's Capital One Cup exit at the hands of Sunderland, but the force have directed any unhappy fans to the club

Sir Alex Ferguson - Manchester United

Which service do you require? Sir Alex Ferguson, please!

A drunken Manchester United fan dialled 999 and demanded to speak to the Scot about the club's Capital One Cup exit to Sunderland on Wednesday night.

Greater Manchester Police have been forced to remind the public that the 999 contact number is for emergencies only after the man complained about United's penalty shoot-out defeat.

The Red Devils looked set to claim a place in the final on away goals, only for David de Gea to spill Phil Bardsley's shot into the net in the dying seconds.

Chicharito came to United's rescue immediately afterwards to force penalties, but David Moyes' men compounded a disappointing performance by missing four of their five spot-kicks.

The result caused uproar among United fans, though one went further in his anger than most.

"Last night, at approximately 22.30pm a man from the Crumpsall area of North Manchester rang 999 in a drunken state demanding to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson about last night’s result," a statement published on GMP's Facebook page read: 

"Obviously, it can be a sad and depressing moment when you’re [sic] football team loses a game, however can we all please remember that 999 is to be used for emergencies only. For any other police related enquiries that are not an emergency, you can ring 101.

"If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try ringing Manchester United FC directly as you will probably (not definitely) have a much better chance of getting through to him there rather than ringing the police."

Transfer News: Blanc out for new midfielder

Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc has announced his intentions to sign a new central midfielder this month, with Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye the man at the top of his wish list.

Yohan Cabaye Transfer News

Blanc has always been a huge admirer of the 28-year old, handing the Frenchman his first international cap in 2010.

Cabaye has been in tremendous form this season, and Newcastle coach Alan Pardew has even admitted "nerves" at the prospect of losing his star midfielder. 

Newcastle have attempted to swat any potential offers away insisting none of their star players are for sale this month, but with reports the French club are ready offer in excess of £20m, it could prove an offer to hard to resist for the Premier League side. 

With a long-term injury ruling out PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, Blanc's desire for a new playmaker has intensified.

Cabaye has proven to become an even more valuable purchase with his eligibility in the remainder of the UEFA Champions League. 

"It would be good to recruit a player in the heart of the game, and have an extra player in midfield," Blanc told Canal+ following his side's 5-0 demolition win over Nantes on Sunday.

"We need a player who has the same mentality as the others when they are on playing or on the bench. He must love to play.

"He must be technically good and be tough, and whether this player comes or does not come, there will be competition in all positions.

"I've been saying for a month and half and the injury Adrien makes it more urgent to have an extra player in midfield."

The former Manchester United defender refused to comment when asked if his comments where directed to interest in Cabaye, but said: "I ask myself. I know the man [Cabaye].

"He has that character, but there are others. We are happy with this team but all competitions in which we are engaged, we must be aware that there will be issues and we already see that with Adrien Rabiot."

Pardew may already be planning for life without Cabaye with reports from France claiming Newcastle are close to agreeing a deal with Montpellier playmaker Remy Cabella, which could offset Cabaye's possible departure. 

Transfer News: Thiago Silva happy at PSG

Paris Saint Germain captain Thiago Silva has committed his immediate future to the French Champions amid interest from Bayern Munich.

Thiago Silva happy at PSG

Silva, 29, became the most expensive defender in the world after joining PSG from AC Milan in 2012 for €42m (£34m), and, last summer, signed a one-year extension to keep the central defender at the Parc des Princes until at least 2018.

Prior to agreeing to an extension, Silva had been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona and it is now claimed that the European Champions are interested in the centre-back.

But, Silva has committed his future to the Ligue 1 club, admitting he see's no reason to leave before his contract expires.

"I want to stay here and I believe I'll see out my contract," Silva told Globo Esporte.

"PSG are one of the biggest clubs in the world nowadays. It's up to us to keep the team that way."

Silva played a pivotal role in PSG's first French Championship for 19-years last season, and has put his side on route to retaining their crown for the first time in the clubs history, with the club five points clear of Monaco at the top.

An unprecedented treble is also on the eye of PSG players, who remain in both the UEFA Champions League and French Cup

After topping their group with only one defeat, PSG have been handed a favourable draw against German side side Bayer Leverkusen in the first knockout stage of the Champions League.

He added: "I think we can replicate our good performances in the league in the Champions League.

"The team are doing very well and I owe my presence in the FIFA's dream team to them too."
