AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella jokes he’s been ‘watching my funeral’

Andre Silva and AC Milan settled for another goalless draw against AEK Athens. AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella laughed off the pressure on his job, saying he has been “watching my funeral for a while” after his side drew 0-0 with AEK Athens in the Europa League on Thursday. Milan have just one win in all competitions in seven games since the start of October, including defeats to Roma, Inter and Juventus, and failed to beat AEK for the second time in two weeks. Montella has been under fire for the lack of results, but Milan are still in good position to advance to the Europa League knockout stage, and he was to joke about the speculation over his future. “It was a delicate match today, the next ones probably will be too. Suso had a muscular problem, so I didn’t want...

Arsenal advance with dull draw

A 0-0 draw was enough for Arsenal to still qualify for the UEFA Europa League round of 32. LONDON — Three quick thoughts after Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw against Red Star Belgrade at the Emirates in the Europa League on Thursday… 1. Arsenal advance without impressing Arsenal’s second-string couldn’t conjure up a piece of magic this time but the Gunners still clinched a spot in the Europa League knockout rounds with two games to spare. Just as in Serbia two weeks ago, Arsene Wenger’s band of back-ups and youth players laboured mightily to break down Red Star Belgrade’s defence and lacked the sharpness to finish off the few chances they created. While Olivier Giroud clinched the away fixture with a stunning late winner, there was no such moment of ins...

Coaching British and Irish Lions tours a career risk, says Warren Gatland

More pressure on Lions coaches – Gatland Warren Gatland says he put his coaching reputation at stake when agreeing to lead the British and Irish Lions. The Wales coach, 54, took charge of the Lions for a second time last summer. Despite leading them to a drawn series in his native New Zealand, Gatland said he was “done” with the Lions after the criticism he received from the tour. “You can fail as a Lions player and it may not affect your career. Have a poor coaching display and that has a massive impact,” he told BBC Radio 5 live. Gatland, who had coached the Lions to a series win in Australia in 2013, was mocked up as a clown by the New Zealand Herald before the second Test this summer, which the Lions won to level the series.

The qualified classifier also told MPs on th...
