Injury Round Up

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has revealed that he has struggled this season with mental health problems. The England international said: "The love and support helped carry me through. One thing I learned this season is that everyone in whatever walk of life is fighting battles you know nothing about, and there is no shame in finding someone to talk to and being open and honest with yourself about how you really feel. To all the young kings suppressing emotion I advise you to talk, to a friend, family member or someone that will listen, talking saved my life. I have had to dig deep within myself at times this season and have endured some of the most difficult times of my career and my life to date. It will make you realise things are never as bad as they seem, and you'll discover that the paradox of true strength is being able to face your weaknesses."

Managerial Changes

Manchester United have appointed Steve McClaren and Mitchell van der Gaag to assist Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. Both men have worked with ten Hag previously in Dutch football.

Borussia Dortmund have turned to Edin Terzic to replace Marco Rose, who was sacked on Friday. Terzic was Dortmund's technical director following a spell as interim boss.


Disciplinary Charges

An investigation has been launched after Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen became the latest footballer to be assaulted during a pitch invasion. Olsen was "attacked" according to Villa head coach Steven Gerrard at the end of Manchester City's 3-2 comeback win to take the Premier League title at Etihad Stadium. A Man City statement read: "Manchester City would like to sincerely apologise to Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who was assaulted after the final whistle at today's match when fans entered the pitch. The club has launched an immediate investigation and once identified, the individual responsible will be issued with an indefinite stadium ban."

Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy has pleaded not guilty to 9 separate charges of sexual offences against 6 women.

He remains on bail and is due to face trial on 25th July at Chester Crown Court.

West Ham United defender Kurt Zouma and his brother Yoan, who plays for Dagenham and Redbridge, are to appear in court to face animal cruelty charges. Kurt faces three charges and Yoan two after Yoan filmed Kurt kicking and slapping one of his pet kittens. Kurt has continued to be picked by the Hammers, despite the charges, while Yoan has not played for Dagenham & Redbridge since.

Zimbabwe and Kenya are both out of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations due to their ongoing bans from international football. FIFA banned both nations from international competition due to governmental interference in the running of their games.
