  • Mourinho 'feels sorry' for Allardyce

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said Wednesday he "feels sorry" for Sam Allardyce and still respects him, a day after his reign as England boss came to a sudden and premature end. After a mere 67 days in charge of the national side, Allardyce paid the price on Tuesday for indiscreetly talking with undercover Daily Telegraph reporters posing as Far East businessmen. The 61-year-old was secretly filmed giving advice on how to get around transfer rules as he also criticised the Football Association's decision to rebuild Wembley and mocked his England predecessor Roy Hodgson.

  • Malaysian opposition MP gets 3 months' jail for sedition

    A top Malaysian opposition MP was sentenced Wednesday to three months in jail after being found guilty of sedition over statements urging protests against Prime Minister Najib Razak's government, lawyers said. Najib has come under fire for using repressive laws against critics and stifling scrutiny of a massive corruption scandal involving state investment fund 1MDB that he is allegedly embroiled in. Chua Tian Chang, better known as Tian Chua, was found guilty of sedition for inciting Malaysians to take to the streets to rally against corruption in 2013.

  • S. Korea football coach Stielike warns Spurs star Son over attitude

    South Korea coach Uli Stielike has slammed the attitude of Son Heung-Min, despite the attacker earning rave reviews for his match-winning performances for Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). Stielike rebuked the 24-year-old Son, who has scored four goals in his last two league games as Tottenham rose to second in the English Premier League table, for his "problematic" behaviour. "As many people have already seen from the stands or on television, I think his behaviour away from the field can be problematic," warned Stielike Monday as he selected Son as his first-choice front man in a 23-man squad for World Cup qualifiers against Qatar and Iran next month.

  • Inquiry says MH17 shot down by missile brought into Ukraine from Russia

    The missile that downed flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine was transported from Russia, a criminal inquiry revealed Wednesday, as it announced that about 100 people were being investigated for playing "an active role" in the disaster. Saying they had "irrefutable evidence" that the BUK missile system was used to blow the Malaysia Airlines plane out of the sky, investigators also for the first time pinpointed that the device was fired from a field in a part of eastern Ukraine then controlled by pro-Russia separatists. The findings of the Dutch-led probe stopped short of directly accusing Moscow of involvement in the tragedy in July 2014, and both the rebels and Russia issued fresh statements denying any responsibility.
