Review of the Day

 

Former Toffee Returns To Cumbria

Former Everton keeper Louis Gray spent the second half of last season on loan with Carlisle United before his summer release from the Merseyside club and has now returned to the Cumbrians as a free agent signing.

 

Scotland's Second Longest-Serving Boss Sacked

Alan Archibald had been in charge of Partick Thistle since January 2013, but he is now looking for a new job after Saturday's 2-0 loss to Ross County saw him fired. It was Thistle's 4th loss in 5 games and leaves them sat in 8th in the league table. Only Peterhead boss Jim McInally has been in his job longer.

 

Cassano Comes Out Of Retirement

Former Italy international and enfante terrible Antonio Cassano is to train with Serie C side Virtus Entella in the hope of a return to football. Cassano threw his toys out of the pram in July 2017 after being unable to break into Verona's side and retired, after only joining them just 8 days before. Then he changed his mind, played two pre-season friendlies and retired again! Cassano has not played a league game since May 2016.

 

Deschamps Rules Out A Rabiot Recall For Now

France manager Didier Deschamps has ruled out a recall for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, saying it is too soon for Rabiot to return. The PSG midfield dynamo had rejected a spot on France's back up list ahead of the 2018 World Cup. Deschamps told L'Equipe: "It's much too soon to recall Adrien Rabiot given his attitude in relation to this shirt. There's no sense in recalling him, it's still much too soon, even if I'm not taking a radical position, as I have already said. With regard to the squad and what the shirt represents, it's not the time."

 

Mixed Reception For Goalscorer Ronaldo

After Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Juventus against Udinese he received a mixed reception of boos and applause amidst rape allegations which he is facing in the USA. German investigative journal Der Spiegel has revealed documents which say Ronaldo admitted the American woman said no multiple times but he carried on anyway, Ronaldo's sponsors have been distancing themselves from the Portugese forward, but he has received backing from Portugese PM Antonio Costa who said: "People need to understand ... [the] presumption of innocence. It is not enough for someone to be accused of something to be guilty of it. If there's something we have proof of is that he is an extraordinary professional, an extraordinary sportsman, an extraordinary footballer, and someone who has honoured and given prestige to Portugal, and certainly what we all wish for is that nothing can ever stain that record of Ronaldo."

 

Dyche Hits Out At Embarrassing Depoitre

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has blasted Huddersfield Town's striker Laurent Depoitre after the big striker was booked for diving in the draw between the two sides. Dyche said: "It won't make a difference by showing a yellow card. He could do it again next week. That's embarrassing, absolutely so. Anyone in pro sport at all - I just can't work it out, we're not talking gamesmanship or cleverness or someone clipping you and then they go down. We're talking blatant dives and today was cringeworthy, but no-one wants to do something about it. Maybe fans should lobby. Maybe they should say we have had enough now, some brilliant things have come through in our game, but that's not one of them."
