BB Round-up – Liverpool eye Monreal, Arsenal move for Charlton ace, Mancini blames Balotelli for Europa exit

Manchester City and Liverpool crashed out of the Europa League in a night of sheer frustration for the English pair. Roberto Mancini blasted Balotelli for his sending off which he believes cost them the tie, although City to be fair created enough chances to win two ties, while Liverpool just couldn’t make any sort of breakthrough against a stubborn Braga defence. Kenny is looking for a positive response to this disappointment, as he looks to secure European football for the Reds next season.

In the papers this morning there have been a mixed bag of stories that include Wenger admitting to Olympic doubts; Drogba admits Torres arrival was unsettling, while Mark Hughes is flattered by Bayern Munich link.
