Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Wanted back by Shakhtar

The club's chief executive Sergei Palkin said the 24-year-old Armenia international has yet to join up with his team-mates, with reported interest from Liverpool and a number of other clubs.

Palkin denied there had been any official approach from the Reds and told the player he must attend the camp or risk punishment.

"Mkhitaryan did not come to the training session yesterday but he had to - we do not know why," Palkin told Russian newspaper Sportsdaily.

"If he does not join the team in the coming days he will be fined.

"Concerning Mkhitaryan's behaviour I know that he does not have any problems with his team-mates and coaches and we have not heard from him about his intention to leave Shakhtar.

"All the questions about Mkhitaryan's behaviour should be addressed to him

"I am certain that the negotiations between them (Mkhitaryan and Liverpool) is just rumour.

"No offer for Mkhitaryan has been made at Shakhtar."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
