Borussia Dortmund 2-3 Bayern Munich: Champions in the clear after Klassiker comeback

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich moved two points clear of RB Leipzig and three ahead of Borussia Dortmund with victory in Der Klassiker. Bayern Munich landed the first significant blow in this season's Bundesliga title race as they rallied to beat Borussia Dortmund 3-2 away in Der Klassiker. Last season's champions were tied with opponents Dortmund heading into the weekend but forged a three-point gap - two clear of Saturday's early second-placed winners RB Leipzig - despite trailing to an effort from Marco Reus. Bayern had lost Joshua Kimmich to injury with the game still goalless yet soon took the game away from BVB in clinical fashion either side of half-time at Signal Iduna Park.

How I Made Kanu Nwankwo Angry – Cesc Fabregas

Former Arsenal captain, Cesc Fabregas, has disclosed that he made his former Gunners teammate, Nwankwo Kanu, angry during their time at Emirates. Fabregas, who currently plays for Monaco in the French Ligue 1, joined Arsenal as a teenager in 2003 from Barcelona. The Spain international was highly rated by former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger. According to the 33-year-old, while trying to impress Wenger and his teammates in his first training at the North London club, he tackled Kanu, which made the Nigerian legend unhappy. “My first training when I joined Arsenal, I was all in my head trying to impress, and I made a tackle on Kanu, and he was so upset with me,” Fabregas told Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, during an Instagram live video. “...

Holyfield Plans Gentle, no-knockout Fight with Tyson

To those who feel Evander Holyfield should find safer pursuits at the age of 57, he has a straightforward answer. ‘They have their opinion and I have mine,’ he said. ‘I prefer to follow mine.’ And so the man they called the Real Deal is looking to strike another. If he has his way, you suspect that will be with Mike Tyson, who has evidently lost none of his sense of timing. That relates as much to Tyson’s ability to hit pads cleanly at 53 as it does his decision to release workout videos in close proximity to those uploaded by Holyfield. Purely a coincidence says Holyfield, and yet it is a fact that a third meeting between two old greats is being discussed by both sides. Terming it a fight might be a stretch, given Holyfield claims he is only after a three-round exhibition in ...

Could Sadio Mane become Africa’s greatest of all time?

The Liverpool star’s rise to the pinnacle of European football has been admirable, but could he go down as the outright best ever in Africa? Mane’s journey from the streets of Bambali, Senegal to one of the historic clubs in the world has certainly been admirable. The attacker probably never imagined just how much he’d achieve when he began his professional career, and especially after leaving Senegal at the age of 15, to his mother’s disapproval. 13 years later, after spells at lowly Metz, Red Bull Salzburg, Southampton and now Liverpool, the 28-year-old has become European champion and world champion with the Reds. The 2019 Champions League winners were also on course to end a 30-year wait on the red half of Merseyside to celebrate another league win, until the coronavirus pandemi...
