Injury Round Up


Managerial Changes

Mark Hughes (no not that one) has been appointed assistant manager with Plymouth Argyle. The former defender has been promoted from a coaching role at the club after the previous assistant, Keith Downing, left this month.


Disciplinary Charges

Kurt Zouma has pleaded guilty to kicking and slapping his pet cat in a video. The West Ham United defender was heard to say, "I swear I'll kill it", in the video recorded and posted on social media with laughing emojis by his brother Yoan, who plays for Dagenham & Redbridge. Yoan admitted one offence as well. The alarm was raised by a woman who saw the video and called off a date with Yoan, telling him: "I don't think hitting a cat like that is OK - don't bother coming today." The prosecutor said that since the footage came out there has been a spate of copycat videos posted on social media.

The BBC has apologised after their news channel showed the message "Manchester United are rubbish" on their news ticker at the bottom of the screen. The text popped up during an update on the tennis as well as another message which read "Weather rain everywhere". The presenter Annita Mcveigh said, as she apologised for anyone who might be offended, that someone was learning to operate the ticker and was "writing random things". At least it was one message that no one was claiming to be fake news....


Chelsea Takeover Approved

The approval of Chelsea's takeover by LA Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly has been given by the Premier League after Boehly passed the owner's and director's test. The UK Government have also given its approval to the move, a spokesperson stating: "Late last night the UK government reached a position where we could issue a licence that permits the sale of Chelsea. Following the sanctioning of Roman Abramovich, the government has worked hard to ensure Chelsea has been able to continue to play football. But we have always been clear that the long-term future of the club could only be secured under a new owner. Following extensive work, we are now satisfied that the full proceeds of the sale will not benefit Roman Abramovich or any other sanctioned individual. We will now begin the process of ensuring the proceeds of the sale are used for humanitarian causes in Ukraine, supporting victims of the war. The steps today will secure the future of this important cultural asset and protect fans and the wider football community. We have been in discussions with relevant international partners for necessary licences required and we thank them for all their cooperation."


England Squad

Gareth Southgate has named his England squad for the three Nations League games with Hungary, Germany and Italy next month. Uncapped pair James Justin and Jarrod Bowen are in the squad, Justin for the first time.
England squad in full
Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)
Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Conor Coady (Wolves), Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Reece James (Chelsea), James Justin (Leicester), Harry Maguire (Man Utd), John Stones (Man City), Fikayo Tomori (AC Milan), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle), Kyle Walker (Man City), Ben White (Arsenal)
Midfielders: Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace, on loan from Chelsea), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
Forwards: Tammy Abraham (Roma), Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Phil Foden (Man City), Jack Grealish (Man City), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Man City)

Southgate also hit out at the requirement to play the match against Italy behind closed doors, referring to it as an "embarrassment". The game, which is to take place at Molineux on 11th June, is being played behind closed doors due to incidents at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium between England and Italy. The FA was fined £84,560 for "the lack of order and discipline" as hundreds of ticketless fans got into the stadium and fought with stewards.


Gazidis Pushes ESL Once More

AC Milan's chief executive Ivan Gazidis has put forwards the European Super League as a way forward for football, despite it failing first time around due to the displeasure of the fans. Gazidis, who was previously at Arsenal, said that, "the reality is the Premier League is the Super League". Gazidis told the BBC: "The rest of European football will not be able to just accept that and allow the Premier League to have the global landscape to excel. The Premier League is wonderful. It is incredibly successful all around the world but we also need a competitive balance and the overall ecosystem to remain healthy. These ideas about changing the European landscape come from that sentiment and that discussion needs to continue."


Spurs Get Cash Boost

Tottenham Hotspur are set to receive a £150m capital injection from majority shareholders ENIC Sports Inc, as they look to hold onto manager Antonio Conte and compete in the Champions League next season. After Conte requested that his squad is strengthened Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said that ENIC would be investing additional capital into the club, which can be used for transfer and player wages.
