Claudio Ranieri's Statement After Getting Fired Will Break Your Heart And Then Melt It

Claudio Ranieri was fired yesterday after leading Leicester City to the Premier League title last season and the Champions League group stage this season. It was very sad, and even more sad is this statement from Ranieri regarding his time at Leicester:

Jose Mourinho Will Be Furious With The Europa League Round Of 16 Draw

For better or for worse, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken every competition seriously this campaign. You could say for better because it’s resulted in United reaching the EFL Cup final, the FA Cup quarterfinals and the Europa League round of 16.

You could say for worse because with the Red Devils holding a 3-0 advantage over Saint-Etienne in the Europa League, Mourinho elected to field a strong side in the second leg, resulting in injuries that will rule both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick out of Sunday’s EFL Cup final.

Leicester City Have Managed To Unite The Entire World Once Again

So that’s that then. The man who led Leicester City to their greatest achievement in 133 years of existence, who, against 5,000-1 odds, reminded us that football is important because it provides moments of proof as to the ability to ascend over the bleak status quo — that we are surrounded by possibilities rather than dictated by a torrent of cruel fate, has been stabbed in the back by his club a day after declaring that “the dream is alive”.

Arsenal vs. Sutton Was Exactly The Spectacle Everyone Wanted It To Be

Sutton vs. Arsenal is not a thing anyone expected to happen at the start of the FA Cup, but after beating Cheltenham, Leeds United and Wimbledon, Sutton forced mighty Arsenal to come face them at Gander Green Lane. And man, they put on a show.

You just knew this wouldn't be an ordinary match when a man clad in just his undies and a giraffe hat ran onto the pitch.

The Lincoln City And Sutton United Players That've Shocked The World

The remarkable progress of non-league sides Lincoln City and Sutton United in the FA Cup will continue after Lincoln City’s shocking defeat of Burnley on Saturday.

Here are five of the most interesting characters from the sides.

If Arsene Wenger Walks, Where Would The Professor Go Next?

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will not walk out on Arsenal this season, but his future at the club remains in the balance with his contract set to expire in the summer. The BBC has reported that the 67-year-old and the club will come to a mutual agreement in the summer, but Wenger has made it clear that regardless of what happens, he will still be coaching next year.
