The 28-year-old Brazilian had a disappointing game against Liverpool and received a number of abusive messages after the match in the comments section of a picture he had posted on Sunday following United's 3-1 win over Aston Villa.

French world road race champion Julian Alaphilippe will skip the Olympic road race for personal reasons, he said on Friday. "After giving it a lot of thought, I have decided, after agreeing with the national coach and my Deceuninck-Quick Step team, not to make myself available for selection for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics," Alaphilippe wrote on Instagram. Alaphilippe, who was fourth in the Olympic road race in 2016, will however be at the start of the Tour de France on June 26 in Brest.

England attack coach Simon Amor and skills coach Jason Ryles have both left their roles with the national men's side, the RFU announced on Friday, as England look to move on from their worst-ever Six Nations campaign. Regarding Amor, the RFU stated that the two parties had "mutually decided to part company so that he can explore new opportunities". Amor was appointed following the 2019 Rugby World Cup but England's attack has been frequently criticised since then, particularly during this year's Six Nations. He was previously England Men's Sevens head coach between 2013 and 2019, and also led Team GB to a silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Amor said: “My seven and a half years with the RFU has been a fantastic experience. Leading the England Sevens programme to success, including all we achieved culturally, and bringing together the men’s and women’s game, is something I look back on with real pride. “I will always be grateful to Eddie for providing me with the opportunity to coach my country’s senior XVs team and to further develop my skills amongst some of the best and most experienced players and coaches in the game." Ryles joined the coaching staff in October 2020 and was part of the conclusion of the 2020 Six Nations and Autumn Nations Cup campaign, but remained in Australia during this year's Six Nations to be with his family amid the uncertainty surrounding international travel due to Covid-19. England head coach Eddie Jones will oversee the attack for the team's summer Test matches against USA and Canada, with John Mitchell and Matt Proudfoot continuing as assistant coaches. Jones said: “I’d like to thank Simon and Jason for their contributions to England. I would like to commend Simon’s outstanding diligence and his hard work, and I have no doubt he will find a role soon that suits him perfectly. “With Jason, the COVID-19 restrictions have proved too difficult for him and his family to overcome, which we fully understand but are disappointed for us and the team. They both leave with the best wishes of everyone involved with England and for their future pursuits in the game.”
Manchester City and Chelsea will contest the showpiece, which has been moved to Porto.
In the anxious minutes before the final British and Irish Lions squad selection meeting at the Lensbury Hotel last week, Gregor Townsend opened his laptop for one last time. Hundreds of hours of preparation had gone into this moment, arguably the biggest selection meeting of his coaching career. Townsend had analysed players across the four home unions, and spoken to a range of coaches, both past and present, from former England head coach Stuart Lancaster at Leinster to Joe Schmidt, the former Ireland head coach who is now with World Rugby, and Chris Boyd at Northampton. Yet even now, 30 minutes before the four-hour meeting was due to start to pick what would ultimately prove to be a 37-strong squad for the tour of South Africa, Townsend could not resist one final review of the game he had first turned to when Gatland had asked him to be a Lions assistant coach back in December – England’s humbling World Cup final defeat by South Africa in Yokohama. "We met at 1.30pm and in the half hour before I remember I watched back clips of the World Cup final to review one player again," recalled Townsend in an exclusive interview with Telegraph Sport. "It was then that I finally thought, 'right, that is the last game, now we are into the selection meeting'. "It was also the first I had turned to when Warren first offered me the (Lions) coaching role. It was obviously the last game the Springboks played but there was a dual role there. We were playing England in the first game of the Six Nations, so I was half-looking for any more traits from England, even though it was over a year ago. "But also to look at South Africa – their defence, what they did well that day. And what England did well. It is probably forgotten after the result that there were a lot of things that they did do well in that first half." Eighteen months on and that final was still having potential repercussions - and the focus on performances in the World Cup perhaps goes some way to explain why England, despite finishing fifth in the Six Nations, still provided the highest number of players (11) to the Lions squad.
The UFC is set to crown either American Michael Chandler or Brazil's Charles Oliveira as lightweight champion in Houston, Texas on Saturday, filling the void left by the retirement of undefeated Dagestani Khabib Nurmagomedov last October. Nurmagomedov, 32, announced his retirement in the cage following his submission victory over American Justin Gaethje in October 2020, prompting a rush to replace him at the top of one of the most competitive divisions in the UFC. Former Bellator champion Chandler quickly dispatched New Zealander Dan Hooker in his UFC debut in January and will fight for the UFC belt in only his second bout with the promotion.

With Hungary forced into long lockdowns, Siklosi took a step back. "One may think I was on track for a good Olympic performance but I doubt I would have lived up to my own expectations in 2020," he told Reuters, speaking at the national fencing centre as members of the Hungarian national team trained nearby.
Fleet-footed Norwegian winger Guro Reiten joined Chelsea to play in the biggest club games possible, and on Sunday her dream will come true as they take on Barcelona in the Champions League final in Gothenburg. Reiten had already reached the top in Norway, winning three league titles with LSK and twice finishing as the league’s top scorer, but the move to London in 2019 to a club with Chelsea’s resources has been a big step up. "What is similar is the desire to win, to sacrifice everything to win regardless, but the conditions here for winning are very different," Reiten told Reuters.

Whenever a Premier League team of the season is picked at this time of year, it is not long before the cry goes up condemning big club bias and our tendency to overlook players outside of the so-called 'big six'. Often this is slightly contrived, but one player who surely deserves more recognition is West Ham's Michail Antonio. If his hamstrings were not quite so delicate, David Moyes' side may well have lasted the distance in the race for Champions League football. Antonio's ability to mess centre-halves around and be a general nuisance is frequently noted, but his ability to sniff out high-quality chances in the penalty area is possibly undervalued. Considering Antonio came late to the centre forward role having been a positional nomad for much of his career, he has well attuned goalscoring instincts. West Ham travel to Brighton on Saturday and Antonio has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 13 away Premier League starts with 11 goals and three assists. Antonio has scored 24 away goals for West Ham in the Premier League, five more than any other player for the club. His underlying numbers are also very strong. When penalties are removed from the equation, Antonio has the highest expected goals per 90 average of any player in the league with more than 500 minutes on the clock this season.
