Sharpening up their defensive instincts could arguably result in an improved league position next season, and maybe even a Europa League berth wouldn’t be out of the question.

Clearly, some players can see the attraction of playing under the Argentinian, as Sport, cited by the Daily Mirror, report that Barcelona’s Junior Firpo is set to turn down AC Milan in order to accept an offer to move to Yorkshire.
