The Argentina striker struck twice at Elland Road on Saturday to seal a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough, marking 17 goals this season, and a delighted Warnock rejected suggestions his prolific strike rate might incite a battle next month.

Warnock, who took charge at United in February, indicated that Becchio, who has 18 months remaining on his contract, would be retained next month regardless of any offers for him.

Warnock said: "I don't think we'll lose anybody we want to keep. I can guarantee that while I'm in charge and they're in charge there'll be no key players leaving here - unless we want them to leave.

"We need every good player. We want to look upwards, not downwards or sideways.

"It's not just Becchio. If I was a Premier League manager I'd be looking at three or four of my players. If anyone calls then I'll answer my phone but I know what I'll say and I don't think the new owners will mind me saying it. No-one will leave unless we want them to."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
