Liverpool midfielder James Milner is asked by The Times' Henry Winter if, in the modern game, actually winning trophies has been forgotten about because of the importance placed on qualifying for the Champions League.

He answers: "You could be right on that. So much is put on the top four and getting into the Champions League but ultimately if you play in the Champions League for six seasons and haven't won it, there is not a lot to look back on in your trophy cabinet.

"It's all about winning trophies and adding to the great history of this club."  

'Great to have the fans with us'

Europa League final Liverpool v Sevilla (Wed)

Liverpool midfielder James Milner: “We have beaten a lot of good teams to get here and we have another one tomorrow. The only thing we have on our minds is adding our name to the trophy and another chapter to this club’s great European history. It is great to have the fans with us and hopefully we can give them something to cheer about.

“You play football to be involved in the biggest games and this is a top tournament with a lot of top teams. It is about looking back on your career and the trophies that you have. 

"I had a tough decision to make at the end of last season but I joined for games like this. We have got ourselves in two cup finals so far – we have had one losing experience so far but hopefully it will be the first of many for this team and this manager.”

A familiar journey

Man Utd v Bournemouth (20:00 BST)

Bournemouth fans

After a wasted journey on Sunday, Bournemouth fans are returning to Old Trafford for Tuesday's rearranged final Premier League fixture of the season.

Sunday's game against Manchester United was postponed due to a fake bomb being left in a stadium toilet.  

The south coast club laid on a fleet of coaches to transport fans to Manchester for the second time in three days.

Fans said many people were unable to attend the re-arranged game due to work and family commitments.

But Steve James, who has clocked up more than 8,000 miles going to every game this season, was remaining chipper.

He said: "It was a long drive home but you can't really complain - they've given us a refund of our tickets, we're on the bus today for free."

Troon official Martin Cheyne says "we care very much for the reputation of Royal Troon Golf Club and it is important that the club, much like the wider game, reflects the modern society in which we exist".

IOC president Thomas Bach says the retests of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympics "show once again that dopers have no place to hide".

Thirty-one athletes from six sports could be banned from competing at the Rio Games after testing positive.

"All these measures are a powerful strike against the cheats we do not allow to win," said Bach.

"We keep samples for 10 years so that the cheats know that they can never rest.

"By stopping so many doped athletes from participating in Rio, we are showing once more our determination to protect the integrity of the Olympic competition."

With 31 athletes from six sports testing positive after samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympics were retested, the IOC say they are awaiting results on 250 retests from London 2012. 

An IOC statement adds: "The aim is to stop any drugs cheats coming to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"The IOC will also undertake a wider re-testing programme of medalists from Beijing and London. The samples of those athletes who could be awarded medals following the disqualification of others will also be retested."

No athletes to test positive have been named so far.

The 64-year-old Italian was honoured after leading the Foxes to their maiden top-flight title in his first season with the club.
