Kennedy tells Reds not to fear Madrid

Former Liverpool defender Alan Kennedy believes Real Madrid must be respected but not feared by his former side.

The reigning European champions arrive on Merseyside next week looking for their first victory over the Reds in three meetings.

Anfield holds nightmare memories for the Spanish club as they were ripped apart 4-0 - which remains their biggest away defeat in Europe - there in a last-16 second leg match in 2009.

Madrid have always been admired as the world's number one team and Liverpool will have to do their best and hopefully get the result we got 33 years ago.

We respected what they represented, that their past was as good as anyone's, but at that time British football was at the top of its game - although we took nothing for granted.

Liverpool have to do exactly the same in taking nothing for granted as Real Madrid are a class team.

Pellegrini unconcerned about Ebola threat

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has no concerns over players such as Yaya Toure visiting West Africa despite the outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Toure returned from the Ivory Coast on Thursday after having played against the DR Congo in an African Nations Cup qualifier.

The venue for next year's finals is in major doubt, however, after the proposed host country, Morocco, raised fears about the Ebola outbreak.

No, really we are not concerned about it.

Yaya is not concerned either. I suppose he is sure about that problem - I don't think he will have any problems.

I don't know if he was screened, but for the moment he's okay.
