Sevilla Outclass Manchester United To Progress To The Quarters

Manchester United have been bundled out of the Champions League after losing 2-1 to Sevilla at Old Trafford. Head coach Jose Mourinho made two changes to the side that beat Liverpool over the weekend but the Red Devils barely threatened the Spanish side.

Wassam Ben Yedder came off the bench to score two goals in four minutes and despite Romelu Lukaku’s goal, it was too little too late as Sevila booked a place in the quarters for the first time since 1958.

Elsewhere, AS Roma eased through to last eight after beating Shaktor Donetsk one nil to progress on away goal rule after the match ended two all on aggregate.

Manchester United Captain Michael Carrick Set To Retire At The End Of The Season

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has announced his intention to retire at the end of the season and join Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff.

The 36-year-old is the longest-serving player at Old Trafford, having joined from Tottenham in 2006 and gone onto win the Champions League and five Premier League titles, among many other trophies.

Carrick, capped 34 times by England, has looked likely to leave United in recent summers only to pen extensions at a club that rewarded his fine service with a testimonial last year.

The 36-year-old was handed the captain’s armband last summer after the exit of Wayne Rooney but has only made three starts in all competitions this season.

It has long been expected that Carrick would hang up his boots at the end of the campaign – something the veteran confirmed on Monday, along with his intention to take up manager Mourinho’s offer to join the coaching staff.

“There comes a time when as much as you like it or don’t like it, your body tells you it’s time to stop playing football,” the 36-year-old said.

“So that’s pretty much where I’m at, which is fine. It’s something you’ve got to accept so that’s where I am at.

“It’s kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role). We’re still talking about it, to be honest, so there’s nothing to totally confirm as yet.

“But, yeah, it’s looking likely.”

Reports state that after missing out on their man in 2016, Real are ready to submit an ‘audacious bid’ at the end of the season in order to bring him to Spain.

I’m ready for football in heaven — Joe Kadenge

When football legend Joe Kadenge walked into the Serena Hotel gardens for a press conference, he stunned many of the sports journalists seated waiting for him.

“Nitaenda kucheza mpira huko juu, mbinguni kuna uwanja mkubwa sana,” Kadenge said, pointing at the sky as he walked towards the designated spot in front of TV cameras.

This admission of his mortality brought tears to some journalists, who did not think it is a funny joke.

This was not the last of his comments about the matter.

During the press conference he said, “I have been sick for a year now. I was telling myself, ‘I’m going. I don’t have days in this world.’ Maybe, I will play more soccer in heaven. I thought I was well on my way to heaven but God has taken care of me. And I’m still here.”

The press conference was to announce that Joe Kadenge will be hosted by Manchester United at Old Trafford for the Manchester United vs Huddersfield match this weekend.

“Manchester United is the football team I support from way back in 1958, when I was playing in Harambee Stars. And now that I have a chance to watch them play at Old Trafford, I just hope I will get the chance to meet the team manager Alex Ferguson and other older players that I used to watch back then.”

Black Arrow cofounder Felix Orwa says, “Joe is arguably the oldest Manchester United fan in Kenya. He became a fan as a show of support for the lives lost in the 1958 Munich Air Disaster; an incident that helped shape Manchester United into the team we know today. We are honoured to represent him and help fulfill his lifelong dream of visiting Old Trafford.”

Joe’s trip to the United Kingdom will begin today. He will visit the Munich Air Disaster memorial tomorrow. Then Joe will join Manchester United supporters at the 60th anniversary ceremony on Tuesday, before being chauffeured back home. Throughout the trip, Joe will be joined by top Kenyan videographer Emmanuel Jambo, who will capture footage of the trip as part the the Black Arrow documentary.”

This will be Joe Kadenge’s first trip to England and to a Manchester United game.
