  • Van Gaal worried by De Gea after United loss

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal conceded that uncertainty surrounding David De Gea was "not favorable" as the Premier League giants ended their US tour with a 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Van Gaal is hopeful United will retain the services of De Gea this season but acknowledged the rumors swirling around the star goalkeeper were not helpful to either the play or the club.

  • Searcher says wing find won't change MH370 seabed search

    The discovery of a piece of aircraft wing on an island in the western Indian Ocean is unlikely to alter the seabed search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner in the southern Indian Ocean, the search leader said Thursday. Air safety investigators are examining aircraft debris found on Reunion Island just off Madagascar to see if it is part of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared on March 8 last year. Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan, who heads the seabed search, said searchers' drift modelling indicated that debris could have floated to the island from where they believed the missing plane crashed 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles) southwest of Australia.
