    Football

    Max Kruse

    Germany coach Joachim Low has thrown Wolfsburg forward Max Kruse out of his squad following two recent off-field incidents.

    Kruse lost a large amount of cash in a Berlin taxi in October, then was involved in an incident in a Berlin club while celebrating his 28th birthday on Saturday.

    In a statement from the German football federation, Low is quoted as saying that Kruse had repeatedly acted unprofessionally.

    Kruse will miss Germany's friendlies with England on Saturday and with Italy three days later, but he could also be excluded from the European Championship in France.

  4. 'Villa now harder to sell'

    Aston Villa

    Villa

    New director David Bernstein has warned Aston Villa will now be even harder to sell as they stand on the brink of relegation

    Owner Randy Lerner has failed to find a buyer for the club after putting it on the market more than two years ago.

    "The club must be more difficult to sell now for any decent sum than it was a year ago," said Bernstein.

    "I believe he (Lerner) is obviously devastated the club is where it is but he should be given great credit for a lot of terrific work he's done over the years."

  6. Mondays with Mata

    Football

    Rashford and Mata

    Another Monday, another exquisite blog from Manchester United's Juan Mata to revel in.

    This week the diminutive midfielder is full of praise for Marcus Rashford after his winner in the Manchester derby but also - fittingly for a man who ends his posts with 'Hugs' - urges caution.

    "Marcus showed again that he is a great player in the making," wrote Mata.

    "We all believe in him although we must remember that he’s still very young and he’s just arrived in the first team."

  7. Off to catch some rays... and train!

    Beach

    While we await some proper sunshine in the UK, Liverpool's players are jetting off to Tenerife for a warm-weather training camp.

    It's just for those not on international duty, and the Liverpool Echo says those heading for warmer climes are expected to include Jon Flanagan, Kolo Toure, Steven Caulker, Tiago Ilori, Jose Enrique, Joao Carlos Teixeira, Cameron Brannagan, Jordan Rossiter and Kevin Stewart, as well as a number of Academy youngsters.

  8. Ticket prices 'a fair reflection'

    Manchester City

    Man City fans

    Manchester City have defended charging a top price of £60 for regular tickets for their Champions League quarter-final against Paris St-Germain.

    A club statement read: "Pricing for each match is reviewed on an individual basis, based on factors such as the opposition and stage of competition.

    "As this match is the quarter-final of Europe's biggest cup competition and the first time the club has progressed to this stage, we believe the ticket prices are a fair reflection of the profile of the game."

    Worst ever performances

    Aled Goddard: Has anyone mentioned Mauro Bergamasco's brief unsuccessful foray into being a scrum half?

    Liam Bradford: Sol Campbell for Notts County. Played one game, then left.

    Dom Breslin: Antolin Alcaraz for Everton has to be contender, especially in the Europa League 2nd Leg vs Dynamo Kiev. Horror show.

  11. Bale and Brits abroad

    Football

    Gareth Bale

    Amid the influx of foreign talent into the Premier League, British footballers have rarely travelled well themselves in recent years.

    Gareth Bale is perhaps helping to buck that trend, after becoming the leading British goalscorer in La Liga history.

    And BBC Sport looks at the other Brits to enjoy success abroad.

    Two people were killed in fighting among fans of Raja de Casablanca on Saturday, the Moroccan Football Federation (FMRFF) has confirmed.

    Fans threw flares and ripped up parts of the Mohammed V stadium after Raja's 2-1 victory over Chabab Rif Al Hoceima.

    The country's DGSN security service said in a statement that 31 people were arrested for "acts of vandalism".

    FMRFF has banned fans from the next five Raja home matches and fined the club 100,000 dirhams (£7,170).

    Footage on Moroccan media showed the fans, dressed in the club's green colours, charging at each other. It was unclear how the clashes had erupted.

    DGSN revealed 10 people had been arrested prior to the game.

    Prosecutors have opened an inquiry into the fan trouble.

  14. Hart's stand-in ready to take over

    Football

    Willy Caballero

    With Joe Hart reacquainting himself with the physio's room at Manchester City, it could present an opportunity to stand-in keeper Willy Caballero.

    And the man who was City's hero in their League Cup final penalty shootout victory over Liverpool says he is ready.

    “When I came here, I knew my situation, but I came to play, and if I get my opportunity I try to take it and do my best,” he said.

    “I had opportunities in the cup, and have been training really well, so I am ready.

    “I spoke to Joe and he told me what he felt on the pitch, but now we have to wait for the diagnosis and maybe on Monday or Tuesday we will get the result of the scan.

    “I hope he recovers soon because we need him in this team as he is our first keeper."

  15. Australia require 157 to win

    Cricket

    Bangladesh have amassed 156-5 in their World T20 clash against Australia, with Mahmudullah cracking 49 from 29 balls late on.

    Adam Zampa was the pick of the Aussie bowlers as he took 3-23 off his four overs.

    So Australia need 157 to keep their hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals alive.

  16. Camping in the desert

    Qatar

    Supporters at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be housed in traditional Bedouin-style desert camps.

    Some of the 500,000 fans expected in the Gulf nation might be accommodated under canvas near stadiums.

    "At the heart of this World Cup is a commitment to showcase hospitality and friendship of the Middle East," said a spokesman.

    "As a result, we are actively researching the concept of supporters sleeping under the stars."

    Bedouin campsites are inspired by the homes of tribes that have historically lived in the Arabian and Syrian deserts.
