Chris Froome insists he is innocent and has every right to defend Tour de France…
Manchester United are facing all kinds of problems right now, from what appears to be a split between the manager and the dressing room, to unrest amongst the Old Trafford faithful and criticism from club legends. Jose Mourinho may not have many days left in charge of the club and now respected figures like Paul Scholes are calling for him to get sacked.
Paul Scholes calls Mourinho ‘Embarrassing to the club’
Things have not looked right for some time at the club, with Mourinho appearing to have a frosty relationship with Paul Pogba dating further back than this season. Now results are going against United, with the latest concern being the scoreless home draw against Valencia. Lukaku struggled, Sanchez failed to impress and it was only really Rashford that looked like he wanted to win the game.
"I'm surprised that he survived after Saturday"
"I think he's embarrassing the club."

‘De Gea dropped’ rumour before the game
Before the game, in the TV studio Gary Lineker said he had heard a rumour regarding David De Gea getting dropped, as he had not entered the ground along with the rest of his team mates. However, that turned out to be a false rumour, as De Gea did line up in goal – apparently he had been asked to go for doping tests prior to the game.
Mourinho does not appear to be a great fan of social media, or the media in general for that matter, and last week’s headlines were around the training ground bust-up as Mourinho confronted Pogba for uploading a picture on Instagram where he is seen to be laughing whilst watching the game that United lost to Derby County.
Valencia liked post calling for Mourinho to go
This week, he will be equally unhappy that his captain Valencia had liked a post on Instagram that had called for Mourinho to leave the club. This morning Valencia has taken to Twitter to say that he had not fully read the post and he fully backs the manager. He said: “Yesterday I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture. These are not my views and I apologise for this. I am fully supportive of the manager and my teammates. We are all giving our everything to improve the results.” That solves that then!
