Liverpool will therefore avoid any punishment over Van Dijk transfer saga

Sky Sports report says, Southampton asked the Premier League to probe the Anfield club over an alleged illegal approach for the Southampton defender after reports said the player had told Jurgen Klopp he wanted to join the Reds.Liverpool later ended their interest in signing Van Dijk and issued an apology to Southampton.However, a preliminary probe by the Premier League has failed to find sufficient evidence to support Southampton's claim.Liverpool will therefore avoid any punishment unless any new information is forthcoming.The Premier League has strict rules governing transfers, which means clubs can only negotiate with players once a transfer fee has been agreed with the selling club or if the player is out of contract.Approaches via an intermediary are also out of bounds.Van Dijk joined the Saints from Celtic for £13m in September 2015 and signed a new six-year contract last year. Southampton have repeatedly said they have no intention of selling him.

Inter Milan wanted Conte as their manager but, unfortunately pick Spalletti

Video assistant refrees got Arsene Wenger thinking - Hear what he told his player

This year’s Confederations Cup has featured video assistant referees for the first time, and that got Wenger thinking of the potential perils of introducing the technology to the Premier League."The only question we have to answer now is how far will we go?" Wenger told Arsenal Player."For example, there is a guy in the box who should be given a penalty. The opposition win the ball, go up the other end and score. Do you cancel the goal and give the penalty to the other side?"That could become a very controversial decision, because if the referee lets the game flow he cannot stop the game. If he comes back and gives a penalty of course that can create havoc, because he has to wait until the game has stopped to intervene. We have to think about how you deal with that."At the moment I would [use VAR] for offside and goals allowed or disallowed, but keep it as simple as possible."It would sometimes allow the linesmen to let the game go - they would be encoura…
