So Yaya Toure apologises to Pep Guardiola for his own, and Dimitri Seluk’s, behaviour, in what looks like a bid to salvage anything left of his Manchester City career.
Across the city, Bastian Schweinsteiger has only been invited back to training – while teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan has this week been told by Jose Mourinho to “try harder”… whatever that means.
Klopp’s made it clear he’s got no place for centre-half Mamadou Sakho in his ranks, and it seems like Daniel Sturridge is still clinging onto hope that he can re-establish himself in the Liverpool’s XI – with Firmino continuing to be a better all-round outlet, the former Chelsea man could be waiting a while.
Meanwhile, in the blue half of Merseyside, forward Oumar Niasse hasn’t even got his own locker for the u23s. Ronald Koeman saw him play once for Everton in a friendly and the stern Dutchman admits he doesn’t know why the Senegalese international is still floating around the club.
And to the Midlands, what looked like another bright young English spark has turned into a develop-stunted hawthorn in Tony Pulis’ side. Saido Berahino is yet to find the form that saw him heavily linked to Spurs a few transfer windows back. It’s got everyone at the club wondering whether it was worth keeping him… value, inevitably, decreased – as is the striker’s spirit.
