Huesca Down

Recreativo Huesca only lasted a single season in the top flight in Spain. A 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Valencia saw them return to the second tier with 2 games still to play. Huesca only managed to win 6 league games with their squad, which includes 11 loanees.

 

Ajax Lift Dutch Cup

Ajax have won the first leg of the treble they are chasing. The Amsterdam club are currently top of the Dutch League and 1-0 up against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League semi-finals. A 4-0 win over Willem II has now added the Dutch Cup to their trophy cabinet.

 

Forrest And Clarke Win In Scotland

Celtic winger James Forrest has been named PFA Scotland's Premiership player of the year as he scored 17 goals for the treble-chasing Bhoys who won the league on Saturday. The manager of third-placed team Kilmarnock, Steve Clarke, has won the manager of the year award and Rangers winger Ryan Kent has picked up the young player of the year.

 

Lille Say Mourinho There To Scout Their Players

Lille president Gerard Lopez has denied rumours Jose Mourinho is to take charge at the French club in the summer after the Portugese manager was spotted in the stands watching them play. Lopez has suggested that Mourinho must have been there to scout their players ready for his next club. Lopez said: "Just look at the list of clubs that send scouts to all our games. It's the cream of European football. We are the most scouted club in France. Jose Mourinho is a friend of Luis Campos but it is a pride that he is there and that he speaks well of Christophe's team. But since he is not going to stay long without a club, he also looks at players in particular."
