Mourinho Warned about Roma Squad after Taking new job

  Former England coach, Fabio Capello, has warned Jose Mourinho he would have to build a better squad to achieve his aims and objectives at Roma. Mourinho was announced as Paulo Fonseca at the Serie A club on Tuesday. The 58-year-old who was sacked at Tottenham Hotspur will take charge from the 2021/2022 season. But Capello has said Mourinho’s arrival will not be enough. “It’s not enough to sign a great coach to win,” Capello told La Presse. “You also need the players. “He’s a very prestigious and experienced coach. And above all, he’s a coach who knows Italy well. “So, it’s all a lot easier. Roma is a difficult square, but he exalts himself in difficulty. I hope for Roma fans that he does as well as he did at Inter.”

Evans Earns Point for Leicester at 10-man Saints

Jonny Evans' header ensured Champions League hopefuls Leicester avoided a surprise defeat to 10-man Southampton as they drew 1-1 at St Mary's. The hosts may have been fearing a repeat of last season's 9-0 thrashing after Jannik Vestergaard was shown a contentious early red card for denying Jamie Vardy a clear goalscoring opportunity. But, after limiting Leicester and the Premier League's man of the moment Kelechi Iheanacho to some sporadic half-chances, out-of-form Southampton instead took the lead after an hour when Iheanacho's handball allowed James Ward-Prowse to step up and beat Kasper Schmeichel from 12 yards. The Saints' lead lasted only seven minutes as Iheanacho redeemed himself by finding Evans with a cross from deep which was powered home by the experienced centre-ba...

Lyon Defender Fernando Marcal Scores Funny Own Goal in 4-2 Defeat to Paris Saint-Germain

Lyon left-back Marcal scored a goal Kylian Mbappe would be proud of – shame it was in the wrong net.
