PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN star Neymar kicked out his team-mate Ander Herrera after getting humiliated in training. Some of the squad, including Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, were taking part in a training drill ahead of their Champions League clash against RB Leipzig. The aim of the drill is to keep possession in a circle and stop the two players in the middle from intercepting the ball. Neymar – who will miss the Leipzig match through injury – and Italy star Marco Verratti were given the task of winning the ball back, but things did not go according to plan. It was…

INTER MILAN star Edin Dzeko made history when he scored and produced an assist on Tuesday against Sheriff Tiraspol. Dzeko is now officially the second oldest player to net and create a goal in a Champions League match at the age of 35 years and 216 days. Chelsea legend Didier Drogba holds the record at 36 years and 259 days after scoring and assisting in the Blues’ 5-0 triumph over Schalke on November 11, 2014. Dzeko inspired Inter to a 3-1 win at the San Siro over Sheriff, who have already beaten Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid. The former Manchester…

ONE diehard Lionel Messi fan went to extreme lengths in a bid to get hold of the Argentine’s shirt after Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-2 win. The young kid, who appeared to be at the game alongside his mum, went to the match with a superb banner that left social media in stitches. It read: “Leo, give me your shirt. I give you my mum.” Reacting to the brilliant banner, one social media user said: “Dude it’s a win-win situation hahaha. You got his shirt and he will be your dad – then you have it all haha!!” And another jokingly added:…

Arsenal’s ace says he’s the best in the Premier League. Smith, Emile Rowe has been earmarked for England fame by Jamie Carragher following his performance for Villa. Emile Smith Rowe of Arsenal is the “greatest player in the Premier League running the ball,” according to JAMIE CARRAGHER. Smith Rowe shone during Arsenal’s 3-1 win at the Emirates against Aston Villa, who sought to buy the Gunners’ prodigy last summer. The playmaker set up Thomas Partey for his first Premier League goal and then scored himself to cap off a fantastic night for the hosts, who also saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang score.…

Adam Radwan, rugby’s Mo Salah, is ready to deliver more magic for England. When Eddie Jones became England manager, Mo Salah’s rugby equivalent was playing in front of a few of people outside of Middlesbrough. In two weeks, though, Adam Radwan, the ‘Egyptian Prince,’ might be hot-stepping on the Twickenham turf in front of 82,000 fans. Newcastle Falcons winger Radwan has been scoring for pleasure since bursting into the Premiership scene last season, much like Liverpool’s Ballon d’Or candidate. The 23-year-old, whose father is a tailor-turned-chef from the Mediterranean city of Port Said, scored a hat-trick in his international debut…

MOHAMED SALAH scored a penalty at the same end as his spot-kick against Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League final – but there, the similarities end. The Wanda Metropolitana here in the outskirts of Madrid will always have a special place in the heart of Liverpool fans for obvious reasons. But as disappointing as that game was for the neutral, this completely bonkers game of football was the polar opposite. And not forgetting it was also here in February 2020 that Liverpool delivered a stinking performance in a 1-0 loss before surrendering their crowd with a 3-2 loss in the…

‘It’s about time I got a goal,’ Chelsea ace says. Mason Mount has vowed to fill the vacuum caused by the injuries to Lukaku and Werner. MASON MOUNT has guaranteed Chelsea fans that his long-awaited goal is on the way, and that once it arrives, more will follow. The 22-year-old has not scored since May, but he has promised to step up in the absence of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, who are both injured. Lukaku limped off before halftime in Wednesday’s 4-0 win against Malmo, and SunSport exclusively revealed that ligament damage might keep him out for a MONTH.…

DANI ALVES has described Fred as “world class” – and levelled Manchester United’s recent issues at the door of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions, dropping to sixth in the Premier League table as a result. But Alves does not believe the blame should be put on his Brazilian compatriot. He said: “Every Brazilian becomes world class when wearing the national team jersey. “I hear so many people complaining about Fred. But when he plays for Brazil he is better than all of their midfielders. “The problem is the…

Fans believe Arsenal was given a penalty after the half-time whistle in their match against Villa – but here’s why Aubameyang COULD score a rebound. CONFUSION prevailed after Arsenal’s triumph over Aston Villa, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring shortly before half-time. Before being prompted to inspect the VAR monitor for a possible penalty, referee Craig Pawson looked to blow his half-time whistle. With four seconds of stoppage time remaining, Pawson brought play back after Alexandre Lacazette was taken down by Matt Targett. Pawson eventually handed a spot-kick after reviewing the monitor, which was saved by Emi Martinez before Aubameyang tapped in…
