Review of the Day


Forest Finally Get Work Permit

Nottingham Forest have finally been able to complete one of the most protacted signings in footballing history as Iran striker Karim Ansarifard has at last obtained a work permit. The 28 year old was a free agent after being released by Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis' other club Olympiakos in the summer, despite scoring 17 goals in 26 games.


Sarri Tells Drinkwater And Moses To Improve

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has told Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses that they must improve if they are to have a future with the club. Sarri said: "They have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different. The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think. Moses is more suitable for playing like a wing-back than like a winger or a full-back."


Leicester Players And Officials Fly To Thailand

Leicester City's players and officials have flown to Thailand to be at the funeral of the club's owner Vrichai Srivaddhanaprabha. They are expected to return on Tuesday.


Ref Shows Gray Harsh Yellow

Referee Lee Probert decided to book Demarai Gray after the Leicester City forward took off his top after scoring to reveal a message for owner Vrichai Srivaddhanaprabha after he scored a goal. Probert proved his complete lack of common sense with the ridiculous yellow that Gray received.


3 Hurt In Violent Clashes Before Barca Game

Three people were hurt when fan groups of Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano clashed before their La Liga match yesterday. Barca said that it "laments and condemns" the fighting and that it "reaffirms its commitment to fight against any form of violence in the world of sport and once again puts itself at the disposition of the police and security forces to eliminate these groups."


Bayern Deny Super League Involvement

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has denied that Bayern Munich are attempting to lead a breakaway European Super League, despite reports in Der Spiegel, emanating from whistleblowing website 'Football Leaks'. Rummenigge said: "I absolutely and clearly reject this. The vote in favour of the reform agreed between Uefa and the ECA was unanimous. FC Bayern Munich stands by its membership of the Bundesliga and, as long as I am chairman of the board of FC Bayern, also by the club competitions organised jointly by Uefa and the ECA." Bayern itself also stated: "In its current issue no. 45 dated 3 November, 2018, Der Spiegel magazine claims that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, as chairman of the European Club Association (ECA), had betrayed all medium-sized and smaller member clubs belonging to the ECA. Neither he nor FC Bayern Munich have ever acted to the detriment of the ECA. FC Bayern is also unaware of recent plans for a so-called Super League, also reported by Der Spiegel, nor has FC Bayern taken part in negotiations relating to such plans. FC Bayern is also unaware of why it is listed in a document quoted in this context by Der Spiegel."
