Date: Fri, 14 Aug 1998 22:01:23 +0800 Subject: Leicester Preview (TTALK) Preview V Leicester Alex Ferguson has no major injury problems as United kick-off their seventh Premiership campaign with Roy Keane ready to pick up where he left off last September. The Republic of Ireland star has not played a league match since rupturing cruciate knee ligaments at Leeds on September 27 but will captain the side when Leicester City visit Old Trafford. United have a score to settle with Martin O'Neill's side after the Foxes pulled off a surprise 1-0 victory last season, opening the door for Arsenal to steal the championship. Fergie's minor worry concerns Nicky Butt who has badly blistered feet after Wednesday's 2-0 win over Lodz but he is expected to line-up alongside the other ten who started against the Poles in an unchanged side. Jesper Blomqvist is still out with a heel injury but is targeting his return for the next home Premiership clash with new-boys Charlton. Leicester are expected to include new 2 million signing Frank Sinclair in defence and employ similar frustrating tactics to last January by defending deep in a line of five across the back. United: (probable) Schmeichel, G.Neville, Irwin, Johnsen, Stam, Keane, Butt, Beckham, Scholes, Giggs, Cole. Subs: (from) Culkin, May, Berg, P.Neville, Curtis, Cruyff, Sheringham, Solskjaer.

Date: Fri, 14 Aug 1998 11:58:45 -0700 Subject: Ronaldo's Red Future (MEN) COME IN NUMBER 9 Ronaldo hint for Reds By STUART MATHIESON BRAZILIAN superstar Ronaldo has put Manchester United on red alert. The world's greatest footballer has pencilled in Old Trafford as a future footballing home where he can fulfil his desire to play in the Premiership. The Inter Milan forward won't end the Reds' current search for a fourth striker, following the collapse of deals for Dutchman Patrick Kluivert and a failed second 10m bid for Aston Villa's Dwight Yorke this week. Nevertheless, his revelation gives United a head start in any potential future move for the 21-year-old. ``One day I want to play in England, either for Manchester United or Arsenal,'' Ronaldo has declared from Rio de Janeiro. ``I follow the English championship and know everything about it. It has improved a lot.'' United would undoubtedly have to take a new line on their wage scale if they have any hope of competing at some stage for Ronaldo's signature. Manager Alex Ferguson was approached by the player's agent two years ago and asked the Reds' boss if he'd be interested in the player when he was at Barcelona. Writing in his diary `A Will To Win' Fergie said he asked about the money involved and replied: ``You should go and see the Chairman and frighten the life out of him.'' Ronaldo's agent was then talking a 20m fee and wages of well over 2m a year. Despite a low key World Cup in France for Brazil, the player would command a fee and salary well in excess of that now.

The Swedish international winger believes he closed an unhappy chapter in his life when he bade 'arrivederci' to Italy and moved to Old Trafford in a 4.4million move from Parma. Blomqvist experienced a rollercoaster of a ride during his 21-month spell in Serie A and unfortunately there were more downs than ups. It had all looked so different when he joined AC Milan from IFK Gothenburg in the autumn of 1996 after winning four consecutive titles with the Swedish side. Blomqvist was one of the rising stars of Scandinavian football after he had helped Sweden reach the semi-finals of the 1994 World Cup, but his dream move to the San Siro soon turned sour. Milan were a club in transition as they struggled to match their past glories and one of the chief casualties of this instability was Blomqvist. Last October the 24-year-old found an escape route to Parma, whom he joined on loan before signing on a permanent basis. Everything went well the next few months and he was back playing regular first-team football. But then his fortunes dipped again when Carlo Ancellotti took over as coach and made it clear to Blomqvist that he did not figure in his plans. He knew it was time to go and that paved the way for United boss Alex Ferguson to secure his signature at the fifth attempt. Now Blomqvist is certain that only good times lie ahead. Ferguson has assured him that he does figure in his first-team plans and now he is looking forward to playing for the biggest club in the world. "It was very hard at Milan," he said. "The main problem was that the team had not been playing well and that made it difficult for new players to settle in. "Usually a team has two or three new players and the others who are already there help them. "But unfortunately at Milan there were a lot of new players coming in and we all had to settle at once. "I found that I had to adapt to the country and system of players before I could perform. "I then went to Parma and I liked it there and maybe if they had not changed the trainer, I would have stayed. "But they changed the trainer and the system of playing and that made the difference. "At Manchester United the difference with Milan is that they have not changed that many players over the last few years and that is a big help. "In Italy there were bigger differences with Sweden, but here I speak OK English, while the football, climate and so on mean it should be easier to adjust. "It is always easier for a winger to adapt to a team when they attack as much as United do. I hope England will suit me more." Blomqvist, who has won 26 caps for Sweden, does feel there were some positive points to come out of his time in Italy. He feels the experience has been invaluable to his football education. "I'm a bit more mature now and I have learnt a lot like tactics," he said. "At Parma all the players did a lot of work on defending and I have added that to my game." Blomqvist knows all about United's desire to win the Champions' League and he feels the club have been edging closer every year. "For the last six or seven years Manchester United have been the team in the Premier League, but they have found it harder in Europe," he said. "But the players are gaining more and more experience each year and in European football that is very important and so I hope we can do even better this time." And so the man who helped end United's Champions' League adventure four years ago with Gothenburg is now ready to play his part in finally realising that dream. PA Sporting Life
