  • Rodgers sacked after derby draw, United loss stuns Van Gaal

    By Steve Tongue LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was sacked on Sunday despite preserving his unbeaten record in seven Merseyside derbies against Everton with a 1-1 away draw in the Premier League. More presciently, he told Sky Sports, "When the time comes for me not to be here, I'll accept that and move on because it's an incredible club and a wonderful club to work for." "It is a very good point," Rodgers said after the draw. Alexis Sanchez netted twice to give the Chilean six in the last three games and Arsenal's Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil scored the other to leave the visitors trailing by three goals at the break in a league game for the first time in 10 years.

  • Benitez defends defensive Madrid mentality

    Real Madrid boss Rafael Benitez dismissed claims his side had paid for an overly defensive approach as Luciano Vietto's late equaliser handed Atletico Madrid a 1-1 draw in the capital derby on Sunday. Benitez's men went in front early on through Karim Benzema, but attempted to sit on their lead and were caught out seven minutes from time when Vietto bundled home his first goal for Atletico from close range. The Argentine's strike was just the second goal Real have conceded in nine games under Benitez, but they were again thankful to goalkeeper Keylor Navas as he saved Antoine Griezmann's first-half penalty and made a brilliant stop from Jackson Martinez in stoppage time.

  • In an Oregon gun shop, President Obama's message does not sit well

    By Emily Flitter ROSEBURG, Ore. (Reuters) - The first thing customers entering the Roseburg Gun Shop see is a life-sized cardboard cutout of President Barack Obama with a Middle Eastern scarf around his head and a badge pinned to his chest that reads: "Gun salesman of the year." The customers and sales staff in this store, located 10 miles (16 km) from Umpqua Community College, where a gunman killed nine people and injured nine others on Thursday, said they were horrified by the shootings. On Friday, as customers browsed in the store, many of them preparing for the start of deer hunting season on Saturday, talk was focused on Obama's call the previous evening for stricter gun laws. Don Sheldon, 52, a police officer in the town of Winston, which borders Roseburg to the south, said that when he pulls people over and learns they have a concealed carry permit, he thanks them.

  • Mick Jnr keeps Schumacher flag flying

    The Schumacher name looks set to continue in motorsport after Mick Jnr, son of Germany's seven-time Formula One world champion, finished his debut Formula Four season tenth overall on Sunday. "The season was fun," the 16-year-old told German broadcaster Sport1, "we'll have to see about next year." His famous father enjoyed 91 wins and 155 podium finishes in his Formula One career while Mick Jnr's introduction to motorsport was more modest. Over the season's 24 races, at eight venues, Schumacher Jnr made the podium twice for the Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing, but many of his rivals have a few years' experience at this level as 18-year-old Marvin Dienst won the series.
