Liverpool May Release Downing, Daily Mirror Says: Soccer Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Down and Out

Liverpool will allow Stewart Downing to leave, and lose money on the 20 million pounds ($32 million) paid for the winger 16 months ago, the Daily Mirror said.

The 28-year-old, who earns 70,000 pounds a week, hasn’t scored a league goal since joining from Aston Villa in 2011, the newspaper said.

Torres Trade

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to give up on striker Fernando Torres and sign Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, the Daily Mail said.

Torres joined the Blues from Liverpool, and the London team may send him back to Atletico as part of a deal for Falcao who has a 48 million-pound buyout clause, the newspaper said.

Cisse Question

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse may be banned from playing against Swansea this weekend after sitting out the Senegal’s last match with an injury, the Daily Telegraph said.

Senegal is questioning Cisse’s back injury and may use a rule that can block a player from appearing for his club up to 5 days after missing an international game, the newspaper said.

Relegation Zone

Southampton coach Nigel Adkins expects both he and Queens Park Rangers’ Mark Hughes to remain in their jobs whatever the outcome of their relegation-zone match this weekend, the Guardian said.

Geography Lesson

Christian Benteke said he thought Aston Villa was located in London when he signed for 7 million pounds before this season, the Sun said.

The 21-year-old Belgian, who is a fan of Arsenal, sees the Birmingham-based club as a stepping stone to the Gunners, the newspaper said.
