West Ham fired director of recruitment Tony Henry on Friday night following an investigation into his comments about signing African footballers.

As revealed by Sportsmail this week, Henry sent at least one email stating West Ham did not want any more African players.

He followed that by explaining it was ‘nothing racist’ and said: ‘It’s just sometimes they can have a bad attitude. We find that when they are not in the team they cause mayhem.’

The Manchester United boss claimed his side are simply fighting for second now, but his old rival disagrees
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has refuted Jose Mourinho's claim that the rest of the Premier League are playing for second place this season.

Guardiola's men cruised to a 3-0 win over West Brom on Wednesday, while Manchester United's 2-0 loss at Tottenham left City with a dominant 15-point advantage at the summit.

Mourinho told a news conference ahead of United's game versus Huddersfield Town that, with 13 games remaining, his team must now aim to be "the first of the last, we have to try to finish second".
Riyad Mahrez has been left out of Leicester City's squad for the visit of Swansea City, with Claude Puel telling the Algerian to "clear his head" following the collapse of his prospective move to Manchester City.

Mahrez emerged as a late target for Pep Guardiola's league leaders in January following an injury to Leroy Sane, with the two clubs entering negotiations as the deadline approached.

However, Leicester held firm and are said to have demanded £95million for the 26-year-old, leaving City to concede defeat in their pursuit.

As a result, Mahrez is now reported to have missed training four days in a row having not turned up on Friday, with Puel refusing to confirm whether he has permission or not.
Jose Mourinho has warned Marouane Fellaini to "sign the contract and shut up", as the midfielder enters the final six months of his Manchester United deal.

Fellaini was forced off against Tottenham just seven minutes after coming on when he suffered a knee injury, with the Belgian's return date currently unknown.

Mourinho advised the former Everton man to agree an extension with the club quickly to tie down his future at Old Trafford before they discover the extent of his injury.

Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated manager has been eyed as a successor to Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian is under pressure and Starsport understands his relationship with Chelsea’s hierarchy is deteriorating.

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is also a key target for the Blues, but Simeone would be their preferred option.

It is expected Conte will part company with Chelsea by the end of the campaign.

However, according to The Times, Simeone has no intention of replacing him in west London.
Rahul Dravid on Saturday finally got his hands on a World Cup trophy after his boys beat Australia in the final of the ICC U-19 World Cup final. Dravid had previously missed out on a World Cup title on two occasions - once as a player in 2003 and another as coach of the U-19 team in 2016. Not one to be swayed away by emotions, Dravid, in typical style, had some wise words for his boys, who were busy celebrating India's historic fourth U-19 World Cup crown. Speaking after India's comprehensive 8-wicket win, Dravid hoped the memory of a junior World Cup win won't define careers of his team. The former India captain said he wanted his players to create bigger and better memories for themselves.
