José Mourinho must bin blame game and learn from his failings at United | Daniel Taylor

21-01-2019

Manchester United’s former manager fails to show any hint of humility or to acknowledge he made mistakes at Old TraffordThe people who used to work with Sven-Göran Eriksson tell a story about the former England manager, going back to the European Championship in 2004, when he did something that was totally out of character. He almost lost his temper.England had just been knocked out by Portugal.

A bad refereeing decision had denied Sol Campbell a late winner and Eriksson wanted to know where the official was. He was puce with anger.

21-01-2019

Protests over the decision to hold the Italian Super Cup in Jeddah have grown since murder of Jamal Khashoggi in OctoberWhen, early last June, the Italian football league agreed a €20m deal to play three of the next five Italian super cups in Saudi Arabia, it provoked very little controversy.

Since then the match has been hosted once by the United States, twice by Qatar and four times by China.

Last week Cipriani was omitted from England’s 35-man squad but Eddie Jones has yet to decide whether he needs an extra fly-half for the forthcoming training camp in Portugal in light of Farrell’s injury.Jones said he was “cautiously optimistic” Farrell would be fit to face Ireland in Dublin in 13 days’ time after it emerged the fly-half underwent minor surgery which ruled him out of Saracens’ European victory over Glasgow.

Harry Winks heads home at the last for Spurs to break Fulham hearts

21-01-2019

Who needs Harry Kane when they have Harry Winks? The start of Tottenham’s period without their talismanic centre-forward and, indeed, Son Heung-min, too, looked set to end in frustration as Fernando Llorente – the player entrusted with the main striking role – endured a nightmarish afternoon.Llorente scored an own goal at one end and missed two good chances at the other as Spurs laboured to find their attacking groove. Dele Alli had equalised for them early in the second half but he would be forced off with a hamstring injury in the 86th minute – compounding the sense that this would not be Spurs’s day.
