GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS
Manchester United legend Gary Neville called for points deductions for clubs involved in plans for a European Super League.
He told Sky Sports: “Deduct them all points tomorrow – put them at the bottom of the league and take the money off them.
“Seriously you have got to stamp on this, it’s criminal. It is a criminal act against football fans in this country. Make no mistake about it.
“This is the biggest sport in the world, in this country and it’s a criminal act against the fans, simple as that.
“Deduct points, deduct their money and punish them.”
Meanwhile, Kelechi Iheanacho deservedly fired Leicester to their first FA Cup final since 1969 – on the day fans returned to football.
The two-goal quarter-final hero this time pounced on a rebound from his own shot on 55 minutes to sink subdued Southampton and set up a May 15 clash with Chelsea.
The Nigerian said: “We did it together, the team. Without the team we couldn’t do it.
“It’s not a one-man show, but I’m happy the way we played together.”
And finally, on the transfer front, Real Madrid are said to be interested in a move for Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling this summer, according to reports.
The 26-year-old has been out of favour with Pep Guardiola in recent weeks as the Spanish manager has opted instead to go with fellow Englishman Phil Foden.
Sterling did not start the first or second leg of Man City’s Champions League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund as he was given just the final few minutes off the bench in Germany on Wednesday night.
And The Star now believe that decision from Guardiola has reignited an interest in the forward from Real Madrid.
However, Man City remain in a strong position to ask for a substantial transfer fee as Sterling still has two years left on his current contract.
