    Barcelona's Sergi Guardiola sacked after offensive tweets

    It is the stuff of dreams for any player to join Barcelona.
    Yet within hours of signing for the club's reserve team, forward Sergi Guardiola was sacked after officials were alerted to "offensive tweets" he had posted two years ago about Barca and Catalonia.
    Guardiola, 24, joined Barcelona B on Monday but, according to Marca , the Spanish national daily sport newspaper, his contract was terminated "some hours later" when they became aware of pro-Real Madrid tweets, including offensive language about Catalans.
    Guardiola started this season at Madrid-based club Alcorcon in Spain's second tier.

    Sheffield Wednesday: Fernando Forestieri 'lacked energy' to play

    Sheffield Wednesday forward Fernando Forestieri did not start Monday's game at Middlesbrough because he felt tired, according to boss Carlos Carvalhal.
    The 25-year-old Italian came on as a half-time substitute as the Owls lost 1-0 to Boro in the Championship.
    Forestieri had played 72 minutes on Saturday as Wednesday beat Birmingham.
    "Fernando came to talk to me and said 'I'm not ready to play 90 minutes because I don't feel energy'," Carvalhal told BBC Radio Sheffield.
    "He said 'If you need me during the match I am ready'."
    Former Watford player Forestieri scored twice on Boxing Day, helping Wednesday to a 3-1 win over Blues at Hillsborough and taking his personal tally to 10 for the season.
    Forestieri's omission at Middlesbrough was one of six changes Carvalhal made to his starting XI for their trip to Teesside.
    "We must talk about the conditions that we played this game," said the Portuguese.
    "Some of the players played two days ago. We analyse player-by-player and check which are available to play the game.
    "Some of them recover better than others. We can't put players at risk."
    Carvalhal was frustrated Middlesbrough had a nine-day break between matches, as their game at Blackburn on Boxing Day was postponed.
    "I wish to play with my players in the same condition as Middlesbrough," he added. "This makes a big difference. I can't ask any more of my players.
    "If it was the other way around I am 90% sure we would win the game."

    Morgan Schneiderlin was pleased with Manchester United’s performance in Monday’s goalless draw with Chelsea, but admits Louis van Gaal’s side should have come away with all three points.

    United snapped a four-game losing run after earning a point in the Old Trafford stalemate, however their winless run now extends to eight matches.

    Fans have been critical of United's style of play this term, particularly a lack of attacking threat, which sees the club ranking in the bottom half of teams for goals scored in the Premier League.

    Sunderland's Sam Allardyce calls for 'Rooney Rule' for British managers
    Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has called for the introduction of a "Rooney Rule" to allow home-grown managers the chance to compete with foreign imports in English football.

    Allardyce will go head-to-head with one of the Premier League's newest overseas recruits on Wednesday evening when German Jurgen Klopp brings his Liverpool side to the Stadium of Light, live on Sky Sports, on Wednesday.

    The former Blackburn boss has grown increasingly concerned at the lack of opportunities for British managers, something which has become a pet topic over the years, and he believes the situation has reached a stage where the authorities must act to level the playing field.

    Real Madrid take on Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday afternoon with an opportunity to climb back the top of the La Liga standings for a couple of hours at least before Barcelona take on Real Betis.

    Real are currently in third spot and two points off the pace, but beleaguered boss Rafael Benitez is feeling the strain, with his side having lost three of their last six league games as well as the club's expulsion from the Copa del Rey.

    The 55-year-old, appointed as Madrid boss over the summer on a three-year deal, has been unable to win over many fans and the Madrid media, even a 10-2 thrashing of nine-man Rayo Vallecano in their last match doing little to ease the pressure on him.

    John Terry says Chelsea are starting to show their supporters that the club is heading back in the right direction.

    The reigning champions are unbeaten in three games since Jose Mourinho's departure, having beaten Sunderland and drawn with Watford and, most recently, Manchester United on Monday.

    They remain in a lowly 14th place in the Premier League table, only three points off the relegation places, but Terry is convinced their positive results will continue and was pleased with the way they played at Old Trafford.

    Coventry City could face action from the Football Association after a number of their fans ran on to the pitch during Monday's 1-1 draw with Chesterfield.

    Home goalkeeper Tommy Lee was accosted by one of the visiting supporters and he reacted by throwing the man to the floor.

    An 18-year-old man from Coventry was arrested and has been charged to appear at Northern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court in Chesterfield on January 22.

    The pitch invasion, which police claimed involved around 100 fans, occurred after the Sky Blues levelled the scores in the 89th minute.

    Serena Williams has proved that age is just a number in 2015 as the 34-year-old won three out of the four Grand Slams to complete the 'Serena Slam'.

    She was, however, denied a shot at the first calendar Grand Slam in 27 years as Roberta Vinci, a doubles specialist ranked 43 in the world and rated a 300-1 chance by bookmakers, caused seismic shock waves by upsetting the defending champion and world No 1 2-6 6-4 6-4 in semi-finals of the US Open.

    Anthony Joshua answered any questions about his chin in victory over Dillian Whyte, says Carl Froch
    Anthony Joshua passed his chin check in this month's thrilling win over Dillian Whyte, says Carl Froch.

    The 26-year-old heavyweight holds the British and Commonwealth titles after knocking out Whyte with a decisive uppercut in round seven of their grudge fight at The O2.

    But Joshua's unbeaten record was briefly in peril when he was wobbled by a big left hand from Whyte in round two.

    Michael Schumacher: How is the F1 great in his battle for recovery?
    Two long years have passed since his life-changing skiing accident but the need for patience goes on...
    How is Michael Schumacher?

    Two years after his skiing accident, it's not an easy question to answer - partly because so little is known about the F1 legend's condition and ongoing recovery from life-threatening head injuries and partly because the Schumachers have so frequently requested that speculation is avoided.

    What do we know for certain about Schumi's accident?
    Schumacher was injured on December 29, 2013 as he holidayed with friends and family in the French Alps. The seven-time world champion was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital suffering what was described as "a severe head injury with coma on arrival, which required immediate neurosurgical intervention". At a press conference the following day, Schumacher's doctors described his condition as "extremely serious" and a second operation, lasting two hours, was performed "to reduce the swelling on his brain".
