  • 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. Mourinho, whose side have won just once in their past six Premier League games, said he was sanguine about United's recent results and took succour from the fact they would drop points when they play each other.

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.
