Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has stated that he is looking forward to returning to England when his side face Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday.The Portuguese enjoyed an immensely successful spell in charge of Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, and remembers his time in the Premier League fondly.“I was looking forward to coming back to England,” he told reporters.“I never hide my feelings, even when it means sadness for many people. I admire England, there are tough opponents, but I enjoy the games and the atmosphere.“Differences between Premier League and La Liga? Every league is different from the others in terms of tradition, culture, style, media … it’s everything. I’ve been lucky and I have had experience in several European leagues.“I think Manchester City are a great team – a candidate to win the Champions League. The situation they are going through in Europe is not normal. It’s normal that they can feel disappointed.” Mourinho spoke openly of his coaching career to date, and said that last season’s Liga victory was his finest achievement.“My best moments in the Champions League: the two titles; the worst moments: the two semi-finals I lost on penalties. And there is another main moment which is forbidden to talk about.“I have been awarded as the best coach in Portugal, Italy and England. I don’t care about this season’s prize. The most important thing is that we won La Liga.“If I am going to stay here next season? Tomorrow we have an important match and I have already answered too many questions about myself.”
Hearts General Manager Gerald Ankrah uncharacteristically stormed the studios of Asempa FM on Wednesday morning.His agenda?To dispel rumors he had fuelled a rift between Hearts coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi and team manager Sabahn Quaye.On the daily Ultimate Sports Morning Show, pundits Aziz Haruna Futah (ex-management member), Kobby Jones and Thomas Moreaux took turns to lambast Hearts of Oak and, in particular, Gerald Ankrah for the poor state of affairs.Chief amongst the complains were the fact that Gerald had been rumored to have personally given head coach Kenichi Yatsuhasi a list of players to be transfer-listed including Emmanuel Hayford – who is one of team’s more enterprising names.Ankrah was also accused of turning team manager Sabahn Quaye against Yatsuhashi, causing a rift between the pair at Hearts’ training on Monday. The show was going on devoid of any drama when, unannounced and uninvited, Gerald Ankrah appeared in the studio to react to all allegations.The administrator was confident in answering all questions, but he did not escape without a few hairy moments as the panel grilled him.The General Manager categorically denied both rumors labelled against but did not hesitate to admit there were challenges within the club which in his view were normal in every human institution.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Doc Rivers has addressed rumors concerning him and the Lakers.The Clippers coach has been linked to the other job in Los Angeles. But, he told reporters Tuesday there was “no truth” to those reports. “I just wanted to make sure it was the right fit for all of us. Everybody we’ve brought in, I absolutely think the world of. As far as a workplace, this is a great place to work.” – more Doc Rivers— Mirjam Swanson (@MirjamSwanson) March 20, 2019The Clippers enter Tuesday at 41-30 and hold the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. Although they traded their leading scorer, Tobias Harris, to the 76ers, they appear likely to make the postseason and are set to be in the race to sign top free agents this summer.The Lakers, on the other hand, don’t seem likely to creep into the playoff race, as they sit 9 1/2 games behind the Clippers with 11 regular season games remaining.
