Man United to renew bitter Premier League rivalry with Liverpool
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Wayne Rooney plans to send Jurgen Klopp into another frustrated touchline frenzy by ruining the Liverpool manager's first taste of his club's bitter rivalry with Manchester United. Klopp has proved a volatile presence during a series of touchline rows with rival managers since taking charge earlier this season and the fiery German's antics will bear watching closely in one of the most explosive fixtures on the Premier League calendar. From the CS gas attack by a Liverpool fan on Manchester United players and staff at Anfield in 1986, to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez racially abusing United's Patrice Evra in 2011, few meetings between these ancient enemies have passed off without a notable outpouring of hatred.

Terror is Terror, Even If the Victim Wears Hijab
Huffington Post - about 2 years
I was watching an international soccer match when I saw the news of the horrific Paris Attacks come in through various sources on Twitter. I did not catch the exact second an explosion went on near Stade de France as my livestream was a bit choppy. But soon afterwards video was shared, and I saw the moment when the ball was at the feet of French footballer, Patrice Evra. Then the horrifying details and news reports came in. There are no words. And the world mourned, Toronto mourned. We mourned for the innocent victims from all faiths and backgrounds. We also heard of the stories of heroes, who went out of their way to help others. One of the men, is Muslim. I could not pull myself away from social media for the first few hours. It was agonizing to hear the updates of the events. I had a friend, hijab-wearing woman of Arab descent, attending the match. I was concerned for her safety in the group and I was also concerned for her being an identifiable Muslim. Thank God she was saf...

Tevez putting ghost of legend del Piero to rest
Yahoo News - almost 3 years
Carlos Tevez lived up to his nickname of "Apache" so well this season that he is set to be the first Juventus player to finish Serie A top scorer since Alessandro del Piero in 2008. Juventus's all-round dominance in Italy's top flight was key to their fourth consecutive scudetto, but the influence of the 31-year-old Argentinan has been felt throughout the club and not just thanks to his 20 goals. "Tevez is an extraordinary striker," said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri. Teammate Patrice Evra, who played alongside Tevez at Manchester United, admitted the Argentinian was crucial in him joining the club when he made the switch from Old Trafford last season.

Bleacher Report - about 4 years
Initial fears over Nemanja Vidic's future as a Manchester United player have been calmed by the defender's former international teammate, Mateja Kezman. The 34-year-old spoke in response to Vidic's agent, who recently said the veteran will not be renewing his contract at Old Trafford, which is due to expire at the end of the season. Eurosport's dedicated transfer account quotes Kezman: The former Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain forward appeared on talkSPORT's Alan Brazil Breakfast Show this week, where he added his two cents to the debate: I spoke to him (Vidic) a few months ago and he said then that he was waiting to see what will happen with his contract. I would give him a new contract. It’s true he’s not the player he was a few years ago, he’s a bit injury-prone, but he’s still a leader. Man United need him in the dressing room, around the young players. He’s not unhappy. He’s been there for years and would like to stay for another season. He loves t...
