As China’s hopes of winning the East Asian Championship title receded to nothing in the aftermath of Gen Shoji’s winner for Japan on Tuesday night, Marcello Lippi was already looking to the future. A second game without a victory at such a low-key event was of little real importance to the Italian in the context of the job he was given just over a year ago. With China’s World Cup prospects floundering in the latter days of Gao Hongbo’s ineffective reign, Lippi was handed...

Boring, boring Man United: Louis van Gaal tears into Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward

13/12/2017, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 25159786
Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes the club have become more boring under his successor Jose Mourinho, saying he would prefer to watch local rivals and Premier League leaders Manchester City in action.

Not only has Russia, the top medal-winner at the 2014 Sochi Games, been barred...

The heavyweight division just got even more interesting. Only a few minutes had passed after the news broke that Tyson Fury was free to box again, following his long-running dispute with Britain’s anti-doping agency, when the man himself took to Twitter. “Guess who’s back?” Fury tweeted. Next to those words was a video of him grooving to tunes inside a car. It was a novel way for someone to react to being found guilty of a doping offence. Then again, Fury is one of a...

Lindsey Vonn, one of the most heralded Alpine skiers of all time, was stunned by the responses she received since commenting last week that if she were to win a gold medal in the Pyeongchang Olympics she would not visit President Donald Trump’s White House.
