Injury Round-Up

Qarabag's pitch has been termed a "disgrace" by Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass after Dons' defender Andy Considine suffered a knee injury during the two teams' play-off match in Europa Conference League qualifying. Glass said: "Before the game I didn't want to use the pitch as an excuse. But we've seen the reality of it there, it was a disgrace, and it probably resulted in Andy getting injured which is a terrible thing to see happen at this level. The game shouldn't be played on a pitch like that, both teams deserve better."

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic will be missing this weekend from the squad as the American international has tested positive for CV.

 


Managerial Changes

 

 

Disciplinary Charges

 

 

Kit Confuses Player

The new Fenerbahce third kit, which is just like the Manchester City third kit but in a different colour, has caught out Muhammed Gumuskaya. Gumuskaya ran over to the fans and tried to kiss the badge, only to find, after a search, that there was no crest to kiss. Instead the kits feature the team name written across the front of them, in possibly the worst design feature of any football kit ever produced. It was Gumuskaya's first European goal for the club after graduating from their academy.

 


Chelsea Forward Shows Charitable Side Again

Chelsea's young German forward Kai Havertz, who already owns a donkey sanctuary in his home country, has once again stepped forward to do his bit for charity. After floods have devastated the region he is from, with the German Red Cross still serving 10,000 hot meals a day to people without electricity or water, Havertz has donated 200,000 euros. On top of that, he has had 100 pairs of specially-designed boots made, which will be auctioned to raise more funds. He will be wearing a pair against Arsenal on Sunday.
