Leander Dendoncker: ‘There had to be a reason I wasn’t in Wolves’ team’

Given it was hailed as a coup when Wolves signed Leander Dendoncker last summer, it was surprising to see him sitting on the bench during the first half of the season. Nuno Espírito Santo is known for rarely changing a winning team but there must have been times when Dendoncker wondered whether moving to Molineux was a mistake. There were even rumours the Belgian would ask to leave in January. Yet it is not in Dendoncker’s nature to lose his cool. The 23‑year‑old grew up in Passchendaele, a small village known as a first world war battlefield, and he has...

Chelsea’s transfer ban forces club to make major decisions on recruitment

Chelsea had been braced for Fifa sanction for some time and swiftly against the two-window transfer embargo imposed by world football’s governing body. The case will go to the Fifa appeals committee and, if necessary, the court of arbitration for sport and could drag on for a considerable time, with the enforcement of Fifa’s ban almost certainly stayed pending the appeals process. That buys the club time. They can then target how best to proceed in the market and, indeed, with a long-term squad-building policy. Chelsea have a number of players out of contract this summer – including David Luiz,...

Willie McKay is not an agent, so why was he working on Emiliano Sala deal?

The agent Willie McKay has been unusually public about the central role he played in the transfer of from Nantes to Cardiff City, given the player’s tragic death in the fallen private plane in the Channel on 21 January. Mark McKay, Willie’s son, had a mandate from Nantes to sell Sala to a UK club for 10% of the eventual £15m fee, and Willie McKay told the Guardian that he worked feverishly to interest Cardiff, persuade Sala to sign and cement the deal. His work included arranging two private flights for Cardiff’s manager, Neil Warnock, to watch Sala play for...

Chelsea may turn to England coach Steve Holland if Maurizio Sarri is sacked

would consider approaching their former coach and current England assistant manager Steve Holland to help steady the ship on an interim basis if they call time on Maurizio Sarri’s tenure at the club over the next week. Sarri, who is seven months into a three-year contract, is clinging to his job despite the team’s progress . Recent and have eroded confidence in the Italian, who faces pivotal games against City in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final and Tottenham in the Premier League next Wednesday. Meek defeat in either of those matches is expected to see the head coach sacked, with Holland...

Newstalgia: How Vegas went from pop retirement village to the home of rap royalty

“Yes bitch, I’m coming to Vegas,” announced rapper via Instagram last month, referring not to a quick whizz around the slot machines, but a forthcoming residency at a new club in the Palms Casino Resort. This followed rumours, fuelled by the man himself, that Drake is about to announce his own lucrative residency at the XS Nightclub, and came just days before Christina Aguilera announced her own 16-date stay at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood. The trio follow the likes of Britney, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys, Gwen Stefani, and a handful of EDM DJs into the bright lights...

Face-palm for 007: new Bond title gives Daniel Craig flimsy send-off

If reports are to be believed, the next James Bond film – and the last to star Daniel Craig – . Please allow me to be the first to suggest that its plot will involve 007 injuring himself in a botched DIY job. It’s a bold choice for a title. It feels nice to say out loud, arguably the closest that a film will ever come to being called Frangipane or Loony Tunes, which will be a comfort to anyone still stung by the red-hot shame of having to walk into a cinema and ask for a Quantum of Solace....

Music industry sexism: will Matt Healy's Brits moment spark change?

When the 1975 won the best British group award at , singer Matty Healy used his acceptance speech to quote from about . The next day, the two of them sat down with Chris of Christine and the Queens on Matt Wilkinson’s Beats 1 radio show to talk about their personal experiences of sexism in the business, the need for male allies, where the industry should go from here and how soon we can expect its #MeToo movement. Here is the transcript of that discussion: Matt Wilkinson: For me, the biggest talking point of the Brits last night was when...

Klopp has ‘no doubt’ Solskjær will be given permanent Manchester United job

Jürgen Klopp has said there is no doubt Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be manager next season having restored “all the things Sir Alex Ferguson stood for” at Old Trafford. Solskjær remains on loan at United from Norwegian side Molde but such has been his impact as caretaker manager – 11 victories in 13 matches plus revitalising the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial – that Klopp believes his appointment as José Mourinho’s permanent replacement is inevitable. face Solskjær’s side at Old Trafford on Sunday in a game of huge significance for their title prospects and Klopp, while at pains...

Talking Horses: Willie Mullins on his main Cheltenham contenders

Gold Cup runners I think Al Boum Photo shouldn’t have any problem with the trip. I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him yet. The ground in Leopardstown at Christmas, where Kemboy put in a huge performance, was very, very good. If it comes up like that on the fourth day at Cheltenham, which it can, he must have a very good chance and the further he’ll go, the better he’ll be. Bellshill has lots of stamina, he jumps particularly well. That’s a huge plus for him. We can see him improving all the time. He’s always gone on...

Max Porter: ‘I love slang, I love hip-hop. I love the proper use of language’

“A culture of lying, the outrageous failures of our political system, Westminster being so corrupt, so chaotic ... ” Max Porter is talking about public life in the UK today, about which he finds almost everything “revolting”. Porter’s debut, , a novella-cum-prose poem about a bereaved dad bringing up two boys, based on the death of his father when he was six, was one of the stand-out books of 2015. He was hailed as “a writer bursting with originality”, but he was reluctant to write a second novel without feeling the same sense of urgency. Now, four years later, this...

Australia dominance continues despite scare against New Zealand in women’s ODI

A whole match could be summed up by Sophie Devine’s groan as she hit the ball. Ellyse Perry’s first of the day. Short, wide. Devine slapped it in the air straight to point, and even as it left her bat she knew she’d made a mess of it. And with that first wicket of their run chase, it already felt like New Zealand would again be unable to defy history and unable to make the most of a chance they’d created. The last time the New Zealand women’s team beat Australia in a one-day international series to claim the Rose...
