  • Mourinho calls on players to act like men

    Manchester United's players must behave like men in the wake of their humiliating 4-0 Premier League hammering by Chelsea, manager Jose Mourinho said on Monday. The Portuguese coach -- who sat helplessly as he endured his worst defeat in the Premier League against the club who sacked him last term -- wants an immediate reaction against city rivals Manchester City in Wednesday's League Cup clash.

Although the sums involved -- even when accumulated -- are tiny for a giant like Samsung, the lawsuit illustrates the dent the Note 7 fiasco has made in the prestige of a company used to be being treated as corporate royalty in South Korea.
