  • Francois Hollande mocks Donald Trump by inviting him to Disneyland Paris

    French President Francois Hollande has mocked Donald Trump for insulting the country’s capital city, saying he would invite him to Disneyland Paris so he “understands what France is”.

  • United fans should urge Ibrahimovic to sign new deal - Mourinho

    By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester United supporters should camp outside Zlatan Ibrahimovic's house to make sure he signs a contract extension at the club, manager Jose Mourinho said after the Swede's deadly double decided the League Cup final on Sunday. The 35-year-old Swede struck a sublime free kick in the first half at Wembley and then powered in a late headed winner to secure United's 3-2 victory over Southampton, taking his tally for the season to 26 goals in all competitions. Mourinho's decision to take Ibrahimovic, who he managed at Inter Milan, to Old Trafford has proved a masterstroke and the Portuguese hopes to have him for at least another season, although Ibrahimovic is said to be weighing up his options.

  • Klopp believes board not players decided Ranieri fate

    (Reuters) - The Leicester City squad have found an unlikely ally in Juergen Klopp after the Liverpool manager said that the club's board were likely responsible for Claudio Ranieri's sacking and that the concept of 'player power' was often exaggerated. The Foxes have been subjected to plenty of negative headlines over the weekend after media reports suggested a player revolt led to Ranieri's sacking on Thursday, nine months after the manager led the club to the Premier League title. It is not about how powerful (the players are)." According to several reports, senior players in the Leicester dressing room encouraged club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha to sack Ranieri, saying they had lost faith in the Italian's ability to guide them to league survival.
