Rafael returns home with injury

first_imgManchester United defender Rafael has returned home early from the club’s tour of the United States to have treatment on a groin problem. “As he was unlikely to participate in the remaining tour games, returning to the Aon Training Complex affords the best overall option for his recovery in time to continue pre-season preparation when the team returns,” said a statement on manutd.com.

Milan Mandaric: Leicester’s Thai owners are proud people – they’re not sellers!

first_imgMilan Mandaric believes the key to Leicester City’s stunning Premier League title win was ‘having a team of brothers’.And the former Foxes chief insists the club’s current Thai owners will do everything in their power to resist selling off their top stars this summer.Leicester have completed arguably the greatest shock in sporting history by beating the Premier League’s richest teams to the top flight crown – with the side set to lift the trophy after their final home game of the season against Everton on Saturday.The Foxes’ incredible title bid may have been sparked by the arrival of manager Claudio Ranieri last summer, but their rise to the top began in 2009 when, under Mandaric, they won the League One title with Nigel Pearson as manager.And while Mandaric is now supporting the club from afar, the former chief has told talkSPORT he is ‘happy and proud’ for the club and ecstatic for their faithful supporters.“It’s a great thing, a very special one-in-a-lifetime moment”, he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“It’s incredible and it really shows also that money is not always everything. You see other big clubs who have spent £200million per season, and look where they are. Then we have the mighty Leicester spending little and winning the title! I’m so happy and proud.“I started something there when the club were in difficulties in League One, but we sorted it. I always said we’d sell the club one day, but would only sell to the right people, and I’m so happy for those great supporters with what’s happened there this season.“Can they repeat this next season? It will be difficult, but they’ve achieved something this year that nobody else has achieved.“I think if they finish in the top ten next season, that would still be a great achievement for Leicester.”Only a matter of days have passed since the confirmation of Leicester’s unbelievable triumph – they are still yet to lift the trophy – and already teams are reportedly planning to plunder the Foxes squad of their stars.Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante have both been strongly linked with moves away, but Mandaric insists the club’s Thai owners will pull out all the stops to keep the title-winning side together for next season’s championship defence.“These owners are not sellers,” he added.“They are very proud people and they will try to do everything to keep their best players and try to continue.“The team have a fighting spirit and the key thing is that Ranieri and all his staff stay. They’ve got tremendous staff at Leicester, they’re good people and they will be targeted by other clubs now, so it’s important the club keep everyone.“They care for each other and have been like a team of brothers this season.”last_img read more
