Ancelotti’s firm hand

In March 2015, during Carlo Ancelotti's first spell in charge of Real Madrid, the Italian had to manage a bit of a storm at Los Blancos. There were signs of exhaustion in his team, and not even their recent Champions League triumph - that delivered La Decima - was enough to relieve the pressure on the coach."I've won three Champions Leagues with this weak hand of mine," Ancelotti said then, questioned about his work. He left the job at the end of the season.Now he's in a very different position. Six years later he's back at the club, but his Real Madrid side have been outstanding so far this season.

‘He deserves it’ – Fernandes insistent after Man Utd star’s signature moment

Bruno Fernandes revealed what the Manchester United squad truly thinks of a maligned star now hitting the headlines for the right reasons. Ralf Rangnick’s first match in charge appeared on course to end in frustration. Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace proved stubborn opponents, and with 76 minutes elapsed, the scores remained deadlocked.

The midfielder remarkably swept the ball into the top corner with his weaker right foot in sublime style. It was a heart-warming moment for the Brazilian who has frequently been castigated since his £47m move to Old Trafford in 2018. Indeed, the Fred-Scott McTominay central midfiel...
