Review of the Day


Acosta Claims Man United Interest

DC United midfielder Luciano Acosta missed out on a January move to one big money European football team when Paris Saint-Germain were unable to agree a fee for him, but now he claims Manchester United are tracking him. Acosta said after Man Utd scouts watched his team play: "I'm obviously happy [United] were here. They came to see me, and obviously I just went out and tried my best."


Hazard Backs Sarri

Eden Hazard has given his backing to manager Maurizio Sarri. The Chelsea winger believes Sarri shares his football vision of how the game should be played. Hazard said: "Statistically it's my best season. I like to be able to say that, because the way he's thinking about football is the same way I think about football. So it's easy to understand each other. OK, sometimes we lost, but the way he wants us to play is the same way I want Chelsea to play, so that's why we have a good relationship. He came here with his own ideas of how to play and I think we've done quite well. It's not simple to play the football he wants to play, but I think now we're starting to understand how he wants to play. We still need to adapt a little bit. But for the first season, we've reached the Carabao Cup final, we can still reach the top four and win the Europa League. So I think the season is good. Now we just need to see at the end of the season what we have, and if it's a good season or not. We are working a lot, because this manager is different from (Antonio) Conte, different from (Jose) Mourinho. When you have a manager like that, it's not easy to change everything. But I think we showed in the last two or three weeks we're adapting well with this manager, and now we want to finish the season well."


Mothers Ban Fan Indefinitely

SPFL club Motherwell have banned a fan "indefinitely" for throwing an object at Rangers full-back James Tavernier. Items, including a lighter and coin, all landed close to Tavernier as he took a throw-in. Motherwell chairman Jim McMahon said: "As a fan-owned and fan-run club, we have tried to campaign for the rights of supporters. We have been vocal in our opposition to any suggestion or notion of strict liability. However, with that comes a responsibility to act if any of our own step out of line, particularly if we have such clear and obvious evidence. I am sure our supporters understand that we are left with no other option but to take a hard line approach with not only these two individuals, but anyone else who steps out of line."


Former Footballer Fails To Live Up To Name

Former Chelsea and England footballer Danny Drinkwater, who has been retired since the day he joined the Blues, has failed to remember his name after being arrested and charged with drink driving following a crash in the early hours of Monday morning. Two women and a man were treated at the scene and Drinkwater was given bail to appear at Magistrates' Court in Stockport on 13th May.


Van Dijk Picks Sterling

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, one of the favourites for PFA player of the year, has revealed he voted for Manchester City winger (and former Red) Raheem Sterling for the award. Van Dijk said: "I did what I thought and I thought he deserves it. He's had a fantastic season. I could have voted for Bernardo Silva as well, and another couple of players from City. But I am just being honest. I think he has improved a lot as a player. We will see if he wins it."


Scaloni Out Of Hospital

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni is out of hospital following an accident while out riding his bicycle in Majorca. The 40 year old was hit by a car and suffered facial injuries which required stitches.


Candreva Helps Immigrant Girl

After the story of a young immigrant primary school girl went viral, because her family were too poor to pay her school canteen bill and so she was given just tinned tuna and crackers to for lunch by the school, Inter Milan player Antonio Candreva has stepped in to pay the canteen bill. The story went viral because the mayor of the Minerbe, where the girl attends school, is in the anti-immigration league. It has since been revealed that some teachers have been giving their lunches to children whose parents could not afford the canteen fee.


Win Marred By Kane Injury

Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 first-leg win over Manchester City in their quarter-final clash in the Champions League was marred by an injury to striker Harry Kane. Manager Mauricio Pochettino fears the England forward will not play again this season. Pochettino said: "It's a worry for us. We are going to miss him - maybe for the rest of the season. We hope it is not a big issue. But there is not to much time to recover. He twisted his ankle so we will see how it reacts in a few hours. We need to check but it looks like it is the same ankle and similar injury. It is very sad and very disappointing."
