Amnesty
bad idea

has been dismissed as

BoJo infuriated the PM
by proposing the idea
as a solution to the
Windrush scandal.
Education

RUDD SORRY FOR

AMBER Rudd admitted yesterday

It came amid claims the Foreign
Office passed Caribbean ministers?

She said 1,364 Windrush immigrants

Only 600 had got a call back and 23
cases have been resolved.
In a tense exchange with the

Ms

new baby were ?in good form?.
He added: ?Sleeping?s going reasonably well so far, so he?s behaving himself, which is good news.?
And with the name of the new

faced some teasing from officials.
While speaking to New Zealand
High Commissioner to the UK Sir
Jerry Mateparae, the Dean of
Westminster John Hall joked:
?Jerry would like it to be Jerry.?
William told the pair: ?It?s a

And Australian High Commissioner Alexander Downer told the
prince: ?How about Alexander??
He replied: ?Funny you should
say that. It?s a good name.? William?s eldest son Prince George
has Alexander as a middle name.

More than 100,000 bets on the

It is thought William and Kate,
36, want Prince Charles, who was

baby before releasing the name.
Before meeting William at Westminster Abbey, Meghan and Harry
had attended a service at Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner.

She also blasted men before

The Cilla star, 36, famously

?stress and exhaustion?.
After singing the Gnarls Barkley
hit Crazy, she said: ?So guys I
obviously sang that song because
it?s been quite well documented
that I lost my mind for a couple
of years.?
Sheridan, who split from model
Graham Nation, below, earlier this

you will understand, or I hope
you girls will, but men, they send
me up the wall.
?But it?s true they play games
don?t they? And I don?t mean KerPlunk. They play head games.?
The TV favourite joked she was
knocking back vodka and said at
one point: ?Oh dear, blubbing
already and it?s still the first half.?
One audience member said:
?Sheridan seemed very emotional.
There were a lot of tears. Some
songs she barely finished.?
She stunned the crowd after
singing Dinner at Eight by saying:
?It?s actually my boyfriend?s favourite. Whoops, did I let that slip?
Yes, I?ve got a boyfriend. Don?t act
so bloody surprised. I met him at
a party a couple of years ago.?
She also dismissed rumours she
was pregnant by saying she was
?just fat? and revealed she almost
quit showbiz after the death of

But she welled up as she told

A BRITISH GP shot his girlfriend dead then turned
the pistol on himself after fleeing to a holiday island
with up to �0,000 of NHS cash.
Dr Titus Bradley, 42, and Noemi Gergely, 28, vanished a
year ago after staff pay and pension cash went missing from
his four taxpayer-funded practices.
Police on the Atlantic island of Santo Antao in Cape Verde revealed
yesterday the pair had been found
dead in a guest house in an
apparent murder-suicide.
They were killed by single
bullet wounds to the head after
reports of a row and two
gunshots being heard.
The pair checked in on April 15,

THE Government is on the brink of a monumental blunder in its panic over obesity.
We knew the Tories would move on
from their appalling fizzy drinks levy to
kill buy-one-get-one-free deals and tax
?unhealthy? supermarket or restaurant
meals. Even we didn?t expect it to
happen so rapidly or so brainlessly.
Every shopper or diner ? no matter
how fit or slim ? would be clobbered,
and the poorest hit hardest.
Labour and the SNP back all of it. But
if the Government thinks that shields it
from voters? anger it is delusional. The
Chocolate Tax would be a Tory disaster.
The nation may want obesity tackled.
But wait till everyone is paying more to
stop ?other people? eating too much.
There are no votes in it, but plenty to lose.
And if Britain?s still too fat despite cutting 200 calories a day, what then? 200
more? Or 400? Or will they then stop
pandering to Jamie Oliver and face facts?
We consumed more in the 1970s but
were slimmer. Why? More active lives.
So get every child walking a mile a

anti-Semites in Labour ranks
and said MPs have a ?right to
express their views?.
But he added: ?You?d have

Labour MP Ian Austin said:

Threat to Press
IT is shameful that UK Press freedom has
fallen to the second worst level in Western
Europe and only 40th out of 180 nations.
It is because of the obsessive campaign by MPs and Peers to muzzle news
organisations, as well as a hostility
towards journalists that saw the BBC?s
female Political Editor needing a
minder at Labour?s conference.
Imagine, though, how much lower we
would sink if newspapers were compulsorily regulated by the anti-Press zealots of Impress, the State-backed outfit
bankrolled by the odious Max Mosley.
We?d be the only liberal democracy ranked
with the world?s totalitarian dictatorships.

JEZ DO SOMETHING . . . Corbyn is
all talk, no action. Inset, Sun headlines
JUST in case anyone was in any
doubt about it, Jeremy Corbyn
finally confirmed at 7.15pm on
Tuesday that he has no intention
of dealing with anti-Semitism in the
Labour Party.
He didn?t put it like that, of course. He
said the exact opposite ? that he was
?absolutely committed to rooting out antiSemitism from our party and our society.?
But you should never judge a politician
by their words. Always look at their
actions.
That was when his meeting with
representatives of the Jewish community
broke up ? a meeting Mr Corbyn had
called after 2,000 Jews gathered in
Parliament Square last month to say
?enough is enough?.
Long and foul history
They had finally had enough of Labour?s
refusal to deal with its anti-Semites.
That demonstration turned the issue
from a minor annoyance that has dogged
Mr Corbyn?s time as leader into a serious
political issue his allies had to deal with
or risk real damage to his image.
But the results of Tuesday?s meeting ?
absolutely nothing ? show that it was only
ever meant to neutralise a political problem.
Mr
Corbyn?s
action
?
or,
more
accurately, inaction ? shows he neither
takes anti-Semitism seriously nor wants to
do anything worthwhile to deal with it.
Of course, he doesn?t. Anti-Semitism is
in the DNA of the hard Left, in which he
has spent his entire political career.
Some people are surprised when they
hear about left-wing anti-Semitism, as if
it is solely the preserve of Nazi types and
Islamists. But there is a long and foul
history of hard-Left anti-Semitism. Stalin
in Russia, for example.
Mr Corbyn and those around him define
themselves by their supposed anti-racism.
One of the arguments often used to
By
STEPHEN
POLLARD
dismiss the left-wing anti-Semitism that is
so rampant in the Corbyn Labour Party is
that it can?t be real because the Left is
built on fighting racism, not promoting it.
But in the mindset of the extreme Left,
anti-Semitism ? or, to be blunt, hatred of
Jews ? is not real racism.
Real racism is discrimination against
black people and oppressed minorities,
such as gypsies.
Jews are regarded as something very
different. Far from being oppressed, Jews
are seen as part of the powerful elite.
That?s certainly the view of Ken
Livingstone ? suspended from the Labour
Party over his suggestion that Jews
worked with Hitler. The former London
mayor said in 2012 that Jews wouldn?t vote
for him because they are too rich.
Opinions like these are why antiSemitism is a unique form of racism.
Most racists regard the object of their
hatred with contempt as a lesser human
being ? as, for example, with the Ku Klux
Klan in the US or the National Party in
apartheid South Africa.
But anti-Semites hate Jews because they
see them as clever, sly and wily. They
think Jews secretly run the world.
Hence the constant references to the
supposed Rothschild control of the world?s
banks, Jewish control of the media and
wars fought to further Jewish interests.
This is where left and right-wing antiSemitism meets. The hard Left regards the
world as being run by a Western elite and
powerful interest groups, which need to be
broken up by revolution.
See how the anti-Semitic idea of the
Jews fits into this?
It also explains part of the visceral
hatred of Israel on the hard Left. As a
Westernised capitalist democracy they
regard it as another arm of oppression to
be smashed. This is the milieu in which
Jeremy Corbyn has existed for decades.
He may not hold these views himself
but he still doesn?t see anti-Semitism as a
real form of racism.
That is why the idea that Mr Corbyn
could ever act as a ?militant ally against
anti-Semitism?, as he put it recently, is so
much hot air.
Take his reaction to the suggestion that
he stop Labour MPs sharing platforms
with anyone suspended from the Labour
Party for alleged anti-Semitism.
If he was serious about tackling antiSemitism, this would be an easy first step.
It?s setting a pretty low bar for him to
say ?don?t speak in support of alleged
anti-Semites?. But he won?t even do that.
Doesn?t give a damn
Next week, one of Corbyn?s closest allies,
Chris Williamson MP, is due to speak at a
meeting alongside Jackie Walker, who is
currently suspended from the Labour Party
for alleged anti-Semitism.
Mr Corbyn said he couldn?t do anything
because the rule book didn?t give him the
power. This is just drivel. All he need do
is say to Chris Williamson: ?If you go, I
will denounce you.?
When that was put to him at the
meeting on Tuesday, Mr Corbyn shrugged.
As the man who suggested it, Jonathan
Goldstein
of
the
Jewish
Leadership
Council, said afterwards: ?When you ask
him to do something he has this habit of
staring and just shrugging.?
Mr Corbyn can write any number of
articles saying how keen he is to stamp
out anti-Semitism. They are all meaningless. All that matters is how he acts.
And the inescapable conclusion from his
actions is that he doesn?t give a damn
about anti-Semitism.
And why would he? Some of his best
friends hate Jews.

of the week. Not many people
13
do so. But the truth is that
the food we eat today is no
more fattening than the food
we ate back in the 1970s,
when everybody was as thin
as a dieting whippet on
Benzedrine.
The real problem is a lack
of exercise.
People don?t get out any
more. They don?t walk.
They stay in their homes or
drive their cars.
Fat-shaming works
Not so long ago the health
lobbyists
announced
that
everyone
should
do
40
minutes of walking per day
because the results are so
beneficial.
But they had to reduce it to
20 minutes because everyone
thought 40 minutes was way
too onerous.
A bit more education
in our schools about
the
benefits
of
exercise
wouldn?t
go amiss.
?Start Walking
Or
You?ll
Die?
would
be
a
decent slogan.
Might
capture
the interest.
At the same time
the health lobbyists
also oppose what they
call
?fat-shaming?.
And
yet ?fat-shaming? is a free,
non-governmental means of
persuading fat people not
to be fat.
I put on weight a few
years back and it was only
when my teenage son, in
an argument, called me ?a
fat lardy-faced tosser? that I
thought
I
ought
to
do
something about it.
Fat-shaming, you see
? it works. If people
think it?s OK to be fat
they will stay fat.
But leave our food
alone. Don?t price the
poorest of us out of
the treats we all
enjoy
once
in
a
while. And now I?m
off for a walk because
some of that weight
has come back.
How do I know? I told
my wife I had a cut on my
chin.
And she looked at
me
and
said:
?Which one??
The authorities wittered on
about how he contravened
their policies on bullying.
Oh, spare us. If you
can?t
abuse
your
work
colleagues, what fun is there in
life?
Another alleged insult was
?vinegar t*ts?. I don?t know
what it means, but I?m going
to use it at every available
opportunity.
NOB JUST
THE JOB
THE bookies reckon the
most likely name for the
new royal baby is
?Arthur?.
But there?s also heavy
betting on James, Albert
and Henry. All the usual
suspects, then.
However, you can get
odds of 200-1 on the new
prince being called
Kanye and 150-1 on
Barry, which I think
would be good.
My own choice,
though, is Nobby.
I?m CERTAIN that?s
what they?re going to call
it. Prince Nobby.
Either that or Princey
McPrinceface.
IT?S ALIEN
LIFELESS
THE reason we haven?t
seen any aliens is
because the gravity on
their planets is too
strong to let them get
away.
That?s the latest
verdict from a bunch of
scientists. They want to
come see us, obvs.
It?s just that every time
they build a rocket it
rises about six inches
off the floor then
comes crashing
down, because of
that gravity.
Yeah, right.
The reason we
haven?t seen any
aliens is because
there aren?t
any.
None at all. No
six-limbed purpleskinned blobs filled
with methane and
with sharp,
serrated teeth.
No grey
creatures with
weird black
eyes.
Nothing.
Not even
microscopic
organisms.
It?s a dead,
lifeless void out
there, a bit like the
inside of Prince
Andrew?s skull.

Task force launched
EXCLUSIVE by DAVID WILLETTS, Defence Editor
A TASK force of ministers from every
department will be unveiled today in a
Government move to fully support
Armed Forces veterans.
It aims to tackle homelessness, loneliness,
debt woes, mental health issues and physical
well-being.
The first ever Veterans
recruiting leading military charities to help the
push, will be launched by
Defence Secretary Gavin
Williamson.
He said: ?We have a
golden
opportunity
to
ensure our veterans get a
fair deal for their service
and
sacrifice
to
our
country.
?The vast majority of
those leaving the Armed
Forces go on to lead fulfilling
and
rewarding
lives, which is a testament to their professionalism and resilience.
?However,
for
those
who need help it is right
that we step forward,
create new opportunities,
and remind them that
they are not alone.
?Everybody across our
society has a responsibility to make sure we
protect those who protected us.?
The campaign will be
overseen by the MoD but
will involve departments
including the Treasury,
Health,
Education
and
Housing,
Communities
and Local Government.
Mr
Williamson
will
announce the initiative
during a meeting of the
Strategy, which is also
Launch . . Williamson
Ministerial Covenant and
Veterans Board. It was
set up last year to get
the whole of Government
behind the Armed Forces
Covenant,
the
nation?s
promise to support Our
Boys and Girls.
At the inaugural meeting each department was
asked
to
nominate
a
minister to lead on veterans? issues. Those ministers will be announced at
today?s meeting and will
help to ensure the strategy
is
implemented
across Government.
There are more than
two million veterans in
the UK. david.willetts@

THE HEARTBREAK AND THE
LAST night dad Tom Evans lost
his latest legal bid to have
desperately ill son Alfie flown to
Italy for treatment. Medical
experts here say Alfie can no
longer be helped and should be
allowed to die peacefully, in a
case that has stirred passion
and anger on all sides.
SMILE . . . all seemed well at first
By RICHARD MORIARTY
RESTING gently on his mother?s chest,
Alfie Evans looks like any other toddler
enjoying a cuddle.
Yet this could be one of their last
embraces, as Alfie enters the final
countdown of his fight for life.
The tot has stubbornly clung to life
since doctors turned off his ventilator at
9pm last Monday.
Last night, a picture posted on the
Alfie?s Army Facebook page showed
devoted dad Tom Evans asleep in hospital
next to his son.
Tom, 21, and mum Kate James, 20, have
been locked in talks with hospital staff to
decide if he can be allowed to come home
to die.
Tom
yesterday
told
friends
the
23-month-old was ?comfortable, content
and fighting? in intensive care at Alder
Hey children?s hospital in Liverpool.
He said: ?He?s more comfortable now
he?s got no tube and he?s breathing for
himself. He?s showing no sign of suffering
or that he needs support.?
Yet support has come in many forms.
A crowd dubbed ?Alfie?s Army? threatened
to storm Alder Hey, leaving staff fearing
for their safety, while dozens of police
stand guard.
At the weekend, others chanted ?Burn it
down!? outside the hospital, cheered
motorbike gangs performing wheelies in
Alfie?s honour, drank beer and watched
their kids play on a
bouncy castle bizarrely
erected outside.
Some travelled miles to
vent their fury, while others are debating the case
fiercely on social media.
The
?Alfie?s
Army?
public group on Facebook
has more than 380,000
members ? countered by
thousands who support
the
prevailing
medical
opinion and think Alfie
should be allowed to slip
away peacefully.
Meanwhile,
lawyers
have argued the case
before courts in London, Liverpool and
Manchester as Alfie?s parents try to overturn the ruling to withdraw treatment.
Tom and Kate ? who notably now have
separate legal teams ? have been assisted
by the Christian Legal Centre, a group
linked to Christian Concern, which campaigns against homosexuality and abortion.
At a hearing in Manchester on Tuesday,
CLC lawyer Pavel Stroilov was described
by a High Court judge as ?fanatical and
deluded?, preparing a witness statement
from Tom ?littered with bile? that did
nothing to help their cause. Stroilov had
urged the parents to sue
the hospital.
So how did the little
lad
from
Liverpool
find himself at the
centre of a storm that
has
provoked
such
strong
feelings
on
both sides?
Alfie was born on
May 9, 2016, at Liver-

pool?s Women?s Hospital ? where Coleen
Rooney gave birth to her four children.
He was described as a ?happy, smiling
baby who seemed perfectly well? and, after
three days, he and mum Kate, then 18,
were sent home to Dingle, Liverpool.
Kate?s worries began two months later.
Alfie had a ?divergent squint?, was smiling
less, sleeping more and not reaching out
for toys. After an appointment
at Alder Hey in November,
his development was said to
be four months behind.
On December 14, he was
admitted to A&E after suffering a 20-minute seizure.
He was admitted to a
high-dependency unit and
five days later had a
cardiac arrest. He
then fought off
pneumonia.
Tests sugPARENTS . . .
Tom and Kate
gested the problems could be being caused
by a rare mitochondrial disorder that stops
his body converting food to energy.
Alder Hey has now been Alfie?s home
for 498 days but the battle over his future
has intensified in the past six months.
His parents say they should decide what
is best for their son. That was the case
made by the parents of Charlie Gard, a
baby who died last year after a similar
battle over his treatment.
Yet the 1989 Children Act says that
when a youngster is at risk, the State can
? and should ? intervene.
Alder Hey had to go to court to override this parental responsibility, arguing
that ?continued ventilator support is not in
Alfie?s best interests and in the circumstances it is not lawful that such treatment
continue?. The judge agreed and said Alfie
had a right to ?peace, quiet and privacy?.

Pope Francis
fighting for Alfie
Bambino Gesu Hospital indicated it had a
team ready to treat him if a UK judge
granted permission for Alfie to travel.
And last week Tom himself flew to
Rome for a 20-minute private hearing with
Pope Francis, saying in a statement: ?Our
child is sick but not dying and does not
deserve to die. We pray the problem is
solved peacefully and respectfully. No child
deserves this, especially a child of God.?
Pope Francis led a silent prayer and
said: ?It?s our duty to do everything to
care for life.?
While there, Tom may have asked for
forgiveness over an incident five years ago
when he stabbed another teenager in a
row over a bike. Tom, then 15, twice
knifed Owen Connor as he cycled home.
One wound burst his lung while the
other was just millimetres from his heart.
Ironically, doctors at Alder Hey saved
Owen?s life. Owen?s mum Christine, 42,
wrote on Facebook: ?How can a stranger
come along and decide your child?s fate?
That?s what you did to my baby. The day
you stabbed him will haunt us all for the
rest of our days.?
Tom messaged Christine to apologise,
writing: ?I am so sorry for what I have
caused. I am only doing this for Alfie
not me. People can say whatever they
want about my past. I am fighting for
Alfie not fame or money.
?I have put my family through a lot and
am trying to pay them back and show
them I am a man of respect, kindness and
devotion for my son and family.
?Whoever wants to change their view on
me, feel free. This was a stupid mistake
and I will regret it for the rest of my life.?
Tom again spoke proudly of Alfie?s spirit,
saying the boy had ?given it his all.?
So too have the doctors, lawyers and
supporters in both camps. Sadly, there can
be no real winners in this tragic story.
ITALY BID BLOCK
ALFIE EVANS? father Tom last night
declared his son a ?warrior? despite losing
a legal bid to fly the lad abroad for
treatment.
The Court of Appeal backed a High Court
ruling blocking plans to move him to Italy.
Tom Evans and Kate James say lifesupport treatment should continue, arguing
Alfie had confounded expectations by
continuing to breathe despite being taken
off a ventilator.
They said his continued survival
amounted to a significant change of
circumstances, which merited a review. But
a High Court judge ruled against them on
Tuesday and three Court of Appeal judges
dismissed their challenge on Wednesday.
Lawyers for Alder Hey said Alfie?s
condition was irreversible and there was no
evidence it had changed. They said the
fact that he had continued to breathe
unaided might have surprised the public
but had not surprised specialists.
Earlier this week Alfie was granted Italian
citizenship in a move designed to pave the
way for a possible switch to Rome.

AVENGERS IS INFINITELY FINE
IT?S the year?s biggest blockbuster,
starring BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH,
ROBERT DOWNEY JR and SCARLETT
JOHANSSON, but is Avengers: Infinity
War worth the hype? Here, Sun movie
critic JAMIE EAST offers a spoiler-free
lowdown ahead of today?s
UK release.
This epic is likely to smash
box-office records ? but will it
do so in style or with brute
force? The answer is style.
It?s deft, with huge heart and
emotional wallop. After a decade-long
build-up, it satisfies on almost every
level, leaving you feeling that bad guy
Thanos has punched you in the gut,
tickled you then ripped out your heart.
The beauty is seeing our heroes
interact for the first time. It could have
been chaotic but directors the Russo
brothers give each group just enough
time to size each other up and get the
hell on with it. The last ten minutes will ?
and I apologise for sounding like a 16year-old Instagram influencer
? have you feeling ALL the
feels. It?s an incredible film.
There were at least four
moments when the entire
cinema gasped and punched
the air. If you thought Marvel
were flagging after ten years of relentless
action, Infinity War part one suggests
they haven?t even got started.

RACHEL WEISZ relished her
?lovely? sex scenes with RACHEL
McADAMS in new movie Disobedience.
Rachel, married to James Bond star
DANIEL CRAIG, told US mag Entertainment Weekly: ?I?m always spending
time with men in fictions, so for me it
was just really unusual and lovely.
?As a woman, you?re often the object
of the man?s desire but there was something so different about the female
gaze.? McAdams added: ?Energetically, it was very different. It was the
most raw and vulnerable love-making
scene I?ve done.?
If 007 can?t
keep a girl?s eye
from wandering,
there?s no hope
for any of us.
DREAMS really can come true for Nineties
star GABRIELLE, who makes her musical
comeback today ? 11 years after releasing
her last album.
The singer has unveiled the first single
from her new album Under My Skin, called
Show Me, which is perhaps one of her most
powerful tunes yet.
But East London lass Gabrielle ? who had
a No1 hit with debut Dreams in 1993 ? has
admitted in a revealing interview that she
has been suffering ?panic attacks?
ahead of her album?s release.
It is the latest episode in her
long-standing battle with nerves.
The Hackney-born star said:
?My nerves are worse than
ever. I?ve always been nervous
but the more time goes on and
the more I do, the pressure is
on and I feel I am my worst ever
critic. And before anyone can
say anything bad about me,
I could say 20million things far worse about
myself. I will literally have people pushing
me on to the stage when the time is nigh ? I
do some vocal exercises because I feel
like I?m having panic attacks.
?How am I having panic attacks when
I?m middle-aged? But the older I get, the
more pressure I feel under.?
Yet Gabrielle, who will play Brighton?s
Pride Festival on August 5 alongside
BRITNEY SPEARS and PIXIE LOTT,
admitted the nerves will be worth it
for the fans.
She also teased the possibility
of collaborating with JAMES
ARTHUR ? after they first started
messaging following his time on
The X Factor in 2012.
She said: ?I love James?s
voice. I love him and we?ve
been in contact so
maybe in the future we

SHE SPLITS FROM BALLROOM HUNK
JUST a month ago, Strictly hunk
GIOVANNI PERNICE gushed that
his romance with JESSICA WRIGHT
would not succumb to the show?s
infamous curse when it returns
later this year.
And he was right ? they didn?t even
get that far.
I can reveal Italian pro
dancer
Gio
and
MARK
WRIGHT?s sister have split
after hooking up last year,
with former Towie star Jess
devastated by his decision to
waltz off.
A source close to Gio
said: ?He was really
into Jess and did
want to make a
go of it, but he
struggled
with
the
attention
she gets and
her popularity.
?They
have
tried to keep things amicable and told
people they have both agreed to go
their separate ways, but he was the
one who first suggested things were
going to end.
?She has been really upset by this.
It?s a real shame but hopefully things
will stay civil.?
?I don?t believe in
Strictly curse?
The pair, who hooked
up after Gio split with
his
former
Strictly

have
documented
the
romance with a string
of

that
their relationship

He said: ?Of
course I want to settle, darling,
I?m Italian. I want to have a big
family, it?s just not the time.
?I?m 27 years old ? I really want
to dance as much as I can.?
On the dreaded Strictly curse
he added: ?I don?t believe in
it. I always say you are the
owner of your life.
?People can be really
clever or not. We are
dancers, we are used to
doing this all our lives.
?I?ve been dancing 20

who
replied:
?Where in God?s name

said they had ?never

But Ombra?s head chef
Mitshel Ibrahim said the
36-month aged parmesan
costs � a kilo and is

He said: ?It is written

demics from the University of
East Anglia compared medical
records of 40,770 pensioners who
were diagnosed with dementia
with 283,933 who were not.
Those who had taken the
drugs for a year were more
likely to develop dementia over
the next two decades.
Prof Chris Fox, from UEA,

?Doctors

patients

anticholinergic medications.
?They need to consider the risk
of long-term cognitive effects, as
well as short-term effects, associated with specific drugs when
weighing up risks and benefits.?
The drugs work by blocking a
chemical which controls muscle
movement. It is not known why
they may cause dementia.
The Medicines and Healthcare

?We monitor the safety of all

carefully evaluated.?
One in five people on antidepressants today in the UK are

Then you could learn from
cash-savvy mum-of-two Morgan
Woods.
She managed to pay off her

�,000 in just one year.
Reformed shopaholic Morgan, 30,

Here are Morgan?s six simple
ways to help you do the same:
Clear debt. First things first,
Morgan and Tom knew they
needed to pay off the �000 they
owed before they could start saving. The couple immediately began
clearing store card and overdraft

Make a budget and stick to it.

terms yesterday.
Stephen Unwin, 40, and
William McFall, 51, tortured and raped a mum
in a four-hour ordeal
after

They ate a curry as
Quyen Nguyen, 28, lay
dying then drove her to a

her alive in her own car.
McFall took a smiling
selfie as they drove away
from the murder scene.
Sentencing at Newcastle crown court, Mr Justice Morris said they
were ?chillingly devoid of
any human empathy?.
McFall, of Blackpool,
and Unwin, of Houghtonle-Spring, Tyne & Wear,
who both served 16 years
for murder, tried to blame
each other for the killing.

BAD TEMPER LINK
TO TEMPERATURE
PEOPLE really do get angrier in
hot weather, researchers have
confirmed.
They found levels of stress hormone
cortisol ? vital for regulating sugar,
salt and fluids ? rise in the summer.
It is released into the bloodstream
during difficult or upsetting situations.
The discovery sheds fresh
light on the ?summertime
blues?, where heat exposure
seems to be linked with
aggression and an increase in
crime and suicide rates.
Dr Dominika Kanikowska,
who headed the Polish team
at Poznan University of Medical Sciences, said having

more cortisol circulating when it is
warm was a surprise.
She said: ?These findings contradict
traditional concepts of the taxing
physical toll of winter and the relaxed
ease of summer.?
The doctor said the hormone helps
reduce inflammation and is
essential for overall health.
She presented her study at
an American Physiological
Society
meeting
in
San
Diego, California.
Previous theories for the
summer blues include heat
raising metabolic reactions
which trigger the biological
fight-or-flight response.

compensation.?
Like Kevin Spacey, his co-star in
the 1995 thriller Seven, 80-year-old
Freeman is at the centre of deeply
disturbing claims. They focus on his
relationship with his murdered stepgranddaughter E?Dena Hines, who was
stabbed to death in 2015.
During a New York trial this week,
lawyers revealed that she had texted
her boyfriend Lamar Davenport ?
who is accused of her murder ? about
having ?grandpa feelings? for the star.
Davenport?s lawyers told the court
that shortly before 33-year-old E?Dena
died, she ?disclosed to Davenport and
others that her grandfather engaged in
a sexually inappropriate relationship
with her?.
E?Dena?s
messages
appear
to
contradict Freeman?s previous denials
of any affair with her. Six years ago
he was forced into publicly refuting
rumours that they were set to marry.
E?Dena, 45 years his junior, was the
daughter of Deena Adair, who Freeman adopted after marrying her mum,
Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, in 1967.
The actor, who played God in 2003
film Bruce Almighty and again four
years
later
in
its
sequel
Evan
Almighty, remained close to Deena
even after he divorced Jeanette 12
years later, and he took on E?Dena as
a surrogate granddaughter.
He has said: ?Throughout her entire
lifetime, my stepdaughter Deena Adair
and I were the primary sources
of support for E?Dena financially,
emotionally, mentally and physically.?

Deena and son Al na, left, and

His deep affection for a girl who he
treated as one of his own set tongues
wagging. Freeman often took E?Dena
as his plus-one to red carpet events,
such as the 2005 Golden Globes and
The Dark Knight premiere in 2008.
He helped her budding acting
career, getting her roles alongside
himself in movies Moll Flanders in
1996 and 5 Flights Up in 2014, and he
donated �0,000 to her college when
she graduated in 2001.
Wealthy Freeman, whose movies
have earned more than �illion at
the box office, also bought E?Dena a
flat in New York.
But during his bitter divorce from
second wife Myrna Colley-Lee in 2008,
claims emerged that he had tried
to seduce E?Dena during a drunken
night when she was a teenager.
If that is true it would have been a
terrible slap in the face for Myrna,
who had helped to bring up E?Dena.
A family source told The Sun last
night: ?Morgan and Myrna adopted
E?Dena when she was very young. She
was a daughter to Myrna and a friend
for her at the same time, while
Morgan was busy with his career.?
Those
sordid
accusations
have
always been dismissed as vicious lies,
designed to wreck Freeman?s reputation. After all, he is a highly
respected acting veteran, who won a
best
supporting
actor
Oscar
for
Million Dollar Baby in 2004 and has
been nominated four other times.
Freeman, a towering presence at 6ft
2in, has played presidents in Invictus
and Deep Impact and his heavyweight movies include Driving
Miss Daisy and The Shawshank
Redemption.
But the truth is that while
he exudes confidence and
wisdom on the big screen, his
private life has often been one
of turmoil. His first child,
Alfonso, was born to girlfriend
Loletha Adkins in 1959 at the
ACCUSED . . . murder suspect
Davenport?s team made claims

mechanic in the US Air Force. It
would take another quarter of a century before the absent father met his
son, leaving the young man ?angry?
and emotionally wounded. Freeman
once confessed of Alfonso: ?He had a
very difficult time as a child because
his mother didn?t . . . I don?t think
she liked him. She hated me.?
A year after Alfonso?s birth,
following a fling with an
unnamed woman, Freeman had
a second son, Saifoulaye, now
57, with whom he has had a
much better relationship.

Jeanette brought him two

Three years ago he said: ?How do I
take it? However it comes. I?ll eat it,
drink it, smoke it, snort it.?
?The whole family is still

name in the 1990s following scenestealing roles in 1991?s Robin Hood:

year later, it looked as if the former
hell-raiser had calmed down.
His second marriage, to costume
designer Myrna in 1984, was seen as
one of the most solid in Hollywood ?
until he flipped his car over in Mis-
sissippi ten years ago. It was then
revealed that a woman had been his
passenger in the night-time crash, and
a few days later Myrna filed for
divorce. But the passenger, Demaris
Meyer, insisted she had only just met
Freeman and there was nothing
romantic about their relationship.
Both Meyer and Freeman were
badly injured in the crash, with
the actor?s left hand paralysed
and his broken shoulder causing pain for years to come.
But Freeman, who once
said: ?I like women?, did not
remain single for long.
After
his
divorce

TOUCHED . . . Viner was ?stroked?
Lori McCreary at his pad in Malibu,
California.
He admitted that when he first
met McCreary, he noticed the low-cut
dress she was wearing. Challenged on
whether this comment was sexist or
misogynistic, he replied: ?Sexist? Yeah,
but I?m not misogynistic.?
These days he is romancing
52-year-old Linda Keena, a law
professor at the University of
Mississippi.
Two years ago during
an interview about his
movie London Has Fallen,
Freeman was caught on
camera
asking
a
TV
producer
if
she
was
married. He has a reputation for being ?tactile?.
Reporter
Katharine
Viner noted during her interview
with him in 1998 that he liked to
touch her arm, and at one point
stroked her head.
Now the survival of a distinguished
career depends upon exactly what
sort of relationship Freeman had with
his step-granddaughter E?Dena.
Back in 2012, she backed his denial
of anything inappropriate between
them, saying in a statement: ?These
stories about me and my grandfather
are not only untrue, they are also
hurtful to me and my family.?
Now E?Dena is no longer around
to tell the world what happened ? but
Freeman?s family are standing by him.
A close source told The Sun: ?The
whole family is still reeling from this
hideous tragedy, and for Lamar to
bring this up again is truly awful.?

BGT Jen
a BiGoT
OAP HATE VIDEO SHAME
BRITAIN?s Got Talent singer JENNY
DARREN came across as a quirky
pensioner with a hidden talent on
Saturday night?s show.
But it turns out there?s a lot more
to the OAP rocker than meets the eye
? and every bit is deeply unpleasant.
I can reveal she has had a huge
telling-off from show bosses after
liking a string of homophobic and
racist YouTube videos.
The singer, inset, who became a
bookies? favourite to win the ITV series,
has created a playlist on her
account that includes clips which
criticise
homosexuality
and
label Jews a ?pest to society?.
One shock video suggests
our
Royal
Family
are
?imposters?,
while
Jews
should be ?hunted down?.
Another
calls
LGBT
relationships ?a prevalent
sin in society?.
Many more videos on
Jenny?s
playlist
were
deleted after my team
went to her.
As she revealed on
BGT, she is also a poet
? but it turns out her
work isn?t at all about
love and flowers. One poem
written for her Facebook page, titled The
Future, lashes out at LGBT relationships.
A TV insider said: ?Jenny?s behaviour
online is shocking and inappropriate.
She?s supposed to represent a family
show but is instead setting an extremely
bad example for her followers.
?It?s not only an embarrassment for
Jenny, it?s a headache for the show and
producers are fuming. Its most senior
execs have discussed her future on BGT
and have given her a huge telling-off.?
A show spokeswoman said: ?Any
prejudicial language or behaviour is
abhorrent to everyone involved in BGT,
which is an inclusive programme.
?As a result, Jenny Darren has been
reprimanded by producers regarding
her previous statements, and has been
warned over her future conduct.
She has profusely apologised.?
It
baffles
me
that
it?s
someone?s job to make sure
contestants don?t have a murky
past and yet this
slips through.
Given
she?s
a
vile no-mark, BGT
should just ditch
her now and be
done with it.
BENEDICT JACKS UP HIS ACT
l
SHE may be a judge on
America?s Got Talent, but MEL
B is making sure nobody forgets
her Spice Girl roots.
Scary Spice, above, strutted on
to the show?s set in Hollywood
on Tuesday with the band?s ?Girl
Power? slogan across her frock.
I bet she never lets fellow judge
SIMON COWELL hear the end of it.
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH had
to swot up for his latest TV series
? learning how to shoot up heroin.
The Sherlock star plays a posh
drug addict in Sky Atlantic drama
Patrick Melrose, which starts on
May 13. The posh bit was easy for
ex-public school boy
Benedict. But he said of his
screen character:
?This is a very experienced junkie.
So learning how to shoot up, and
the effect on body and mind, was
of paramount importance.?
He also consulted ex-addicts
including EDWARD ST AUBYN,
writer of the autobiographical
novels that inspired the series.
From the two episodes I?ve
seen so far, it is worth a watch.

A WEDDING ZINGER
CAMILLA PARKER
BOWLES will be the one
to watch out for on the
dance floor at the royal
wedding next month,
according to Strictly head
judge SHIRLEY BALLAS.
The ballroom expert
has praised the Duchess
of Cornwall?s moves after
meeting her last year at
Buckingham Palace.
Shirley, below left next
to Camilla, said: ?I saw
Camilla dance and
actually she had some
rhythm and talent.
?So maybe I shall give
her a cha-cha-cha lesson.
I would love to do that.?
While show bookers
search for the next crop
of celebrity contestants,
Shirley teased there may
be a chance they are not
all paired with someone
of a different gender.
Speaking at the
opening night of Strictly
Ballroom: The Musical in
London?s West End, she
hinted: ?We?ve had
wheelchair dancers.
Possibly we could have
same-sex couples.
?I?m sure everybody
would be welcome.?
Hopefully the line-up is
better than last year. It
wasn?t the Beeb?s best. . .
COMEDIAN TIM VINE

The new programme,
called Football Genius, is
being made by Hat Trick,

The show will be filmed
in front of a live studio

Hubby is perfect
yet I cheat on him
Dear Deidre
I CAN?T stop cheating
because I crave attention
from men.
I even cheated with the barman
in our local on an evening out
with my husband recently.
I love my husband to bits. We
have been together for ten years.
He is 26 and I am 25.
He is a great husband and a
brilliant father to our sons, who
are five and four.
We have an amazing sex life. It
has always been varied. I love him
so much and I?ll do anything he
fancies ? things I wouldn?t do with
any other man.
I am terrified of losing him
but when another man gives me
attention, all my good intentions
disappear.
This has happened quite a few
times over the years but I have
never had feelings for any man
except my husband.
Last month, the manager of our
local pub was leaving. He had a
do for all his regulars and we
were there with all our mates.
His son, who is 23, has worked
behind the bar some evenings. He

is single and has always flirted
with me but on this occasion it
felt different.
They had prepared a buffet and
everyone had a lot to drink.
As the manager?s son was clearing tables, he asked me to carry
some of the dishes out to the
kitchen for him.
As soon as I got through the
door, he came up behind me and
put his arms round my waist.
He whispered in my ear that
this was our last chance as he
would be gone the next day.
We ended up having sex in a
storeroom at the back. I felt bad
afterwards but my husband was
talking with his mates and I don?t
think he even noticed that I hadn?t
been there.
I hate myself for being like this.
It is like I am addicted to the
attention but I am tired of it.
I have hit rock bottom and I
don?t want to do this any more.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds like you
get your self-esteem through being
desired by men ? mainly your husband,
for whom you will do anything
sexually. But the need is so great, you
can?t turn down other men who show
interest in you.
You know you are risking losing the
husband you love so much. Having sex
in the pub while your husband is there
drinking is courting disaster. Perhaps
that gives you some sort of buzz.
Identify situations in which you are
more likely to cheat and take firm steps
to avoid them ? staying sober may
help, for example.
My e-leaflet Can?t Be Faithful will
help you understand yourself and
make better choices so you can stick
to your good intentions.
I would suggest counselling too
because unhappy, often abusive, early
experiences can be the background
for behaviour like this.
Dear Deidre
OTHER men ask me but my
boyfriend never wants sex.
I don?t want to cheat and
would rather put things right.
We are both 27 and have
been together for two years.
He used to want wild sex
and passionate sexting but he
suddenly stopped a year ago.
It is twice a month these days

hasn?t showered but then
won?t go and have one. He

Dear Deidre
I SEXTED a lad I?ve been
seeing and his girlfriend has
found out. I feel so guilty.
I met him at work and the
attraction was instant. We
soon kissed and started
sexting each other. I have
given him oral sex too, not
knowing he had a girlfriend.
They are 23 and I?m 21.
I told him about a dream I
had of what I would do to him
and he told me it sounded
good and to text it to him. He
forgot to delete the text and
his girlfriend saw it.
She told people at work, so
now we can?t talk or sext
each other any more.
He says we will talk when
we can and carry on. I love
him and he says he loves me
but I can?t help feeling it is all
my fault.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It is not all
your fault. There were two
of you involved. He
encouraged the sexting and
he accepted oral sex.
He says he loves you but
he is backing off now his
girlfriend has found out, so
it?s clearly not any sort of
meaningful love.
You deserve better than
being his side interest.
He is not free to give you
any kind of genuine
relationship, so forget
about him and move on.

We love each other and the

I?ve done all I can to

LEANNE REVEALS HER PREGNANCY NIGHTMARE
By GEORGETTE CULLEY
and LAURA ELVIN
IT SHOULD have been
the happiest time of
Leanne Crawley?s life.
But giving birth to second baby
Louee
sparked
a
series
of
traumas that ended with her
being diagnosed with cancer.
He arrived ?grey and lifeless?
and was whisked to the antenatal
unit where he spent three weeks
on life support, with devastated
Leanne, 38, at his side.
Then, six weeks after the birth,
doctors found Louee had been
?hiding? a second pregnancy.
His ?twin? was not viable but
had left behind a rare, fastgrowing cancer ? and the cells
had spread to Leanne?s lungs.
While she should have been
home with her newborn, she spent
a month in hospital undergoing
20 blood transfusions followed by
five months of chemotherapy.
Leanne, of Orpington, Kent,
now in remission, says: ?I had no
idea I was pregnant with twins.
Then to find out the unborn twin
had turned to cancer was a lot to
take. It was called a molar pregnancy and nearly killed us both.
?Doctors told me it was very
rare that Louee survived because
molar pregnancy twins often
don?t. He?s our little miracle.?
?Louee?s twin nearly
killed us both?
Leanne, a full-time mum found
out she was pregnant with Louee
a few months after giving birth to
daughter Francesca, now two.
She and partner Andrew Smith,
28, also have two daughters
Olivia, 12, and Charlotte, nine.
Her scans looked normal ? but
Louee was not breathing when he
arrived in December 2016.
She says: ?He had to be resuscitated and it took doctors quite a
time to bring him around. His
brain had missed a lot of oxygen.
His body was shutting down.?
Louee spent more than three
weeks in hospital ? on life
support, in a cooling machine
and in an incubator. His organs
had begun to shut down due to
losing 80 per cent of his blood
and he was put in an induced
coma and given donor blood to
bring him back to health.
But Leanne says: ?Two days
after he came home, I was still
bleeding heavily and was rushed
to hospital where medics operated
to remove what they thought was
part of Louee?s placenta ? but it
was part of the molar pregnancy.
It was terrifying. I had no idea
what was going on.?
A molar pregnancy happens
when a non-viable fertilised egg
implants in the uterus. The one
in Leanne was around the size of
a three-month-old foetus.
Very rarely, twins are conceived
and one develops normally from
the healthy egg, as Louee did.
The other turns into a ?mole?.
The risk of a molar pregnancy
turning into cancer is up to 15
per cent ? and Leanne says: ?I
was diagnosed with cancer a
week after the molar pregnancy was discovered, when
Louee was three months old.
I should have been enjoying
motherhood.
?After the operation to
remove
the
molar
pregnancy, they asked me
if I wanted a funeral for
Louee?s twin. It was a

lot to take in ? they never knew
there were two in there. All you
could see on the scan was Louee.
But it turned out he had been
hiding it all along, protecting me.?
Sadly, Louee?s presence delayed
the diagnosis. Leanne says: ?The
cancer had spread to my lungs.
They said they didn?t want it to
get to my brain and I had chemo
that night.?
Leanne went on to have 15

died when a blood clot travelled
to her lung while in hospital.
Five weeks after Leanne started
her chemo, she also lost her hair.
She says: ?It was horrible, a
constant reminder I had cancer.
?When I woke up in the
morning I would forget for a few
seconds then I?d see myself in the
mirror. Part of my identity had
been taken away.?
Leanne got the all-clear last
September but is still fighting
back to fitness.
She says: ?Louee?s twin nearly
killed us both. When I fell
pregnant, I never thought
that
would
be
the
outcome. But I had so
much support from my
friends and family.
?Obviously, though, I?d
take it all again if it
was a choice between
me and Louee.?
STORY OF
THE ?MOLE?
By CAROL COOPER, Sun GP
A MOLAR pregnancy occurs when the
fertilised egg fails to develop as it
should. Instead of a foetus, there is a
mass of cells similar to placenta cells.
This ?mole? grows into a cluster of
cysts and releases the hormone HCG,
which causes morning sickness. They
can be part of a twin pregnancy but that
is rare. The other twin can grow OK but
molar cells often take over and harm
the it, so Louee was very lucky.
Molar pregnancies happen when
there is a genetic problem with the
fertilised egg. Women who have had a
one are slightly more likely to have
another next time around, but the vast
majority do not.

preparatio
guide
LAST week?s unexpected heatwave
had some of us in a flap.
We swapped rollneck jumpers and
padded coats for summer dresses
and sandals . . . but we were NOT
ready. As the weather cools this
week, we are determined not to let a
sudden burst of sunshine surprise
us like that again.
Here, JENNY FRANCIS, SOPHIE
BRONSTEIN and SIOBHAN O?CONNOR
offer the ultimate summer prep
guide to ensure we are poised and
ready for flashing the flesh next time.
TUMMY
EXERCISE: Planking might be the best
exercise you can do for your tummy.
Rest your forearms on the floor so your
elbows are below your shoulders and
form a straight plank by tucking your
toes under. Check your back and
bum aren?t popping up or
caving in. Hold for one minute.
FOOD: Pineapple, lemon and
kiwi are great for reducing
inflammation and keeping
belly bloat in check. Want
something less sweet? Try
adding more garlic to your
dinner. It is a naturally occurring
prebiotic that helps to keep gut
bacteria in check.
FASHION: Clever details will help to
disguise your midriff and can give the
illusion of a slimmer silhouette. Wrap ties
will nip you in at your smallest part, while
ruched details will cover any lumps and
bumps. Top, �, Topshop.
BEAUTY: A tanned, taut tummy might
always seem like a long way off, but even
if you are catching a few lunchtime
rays, you will still want to feel
confident enough to
flash it. Make sure
you
never
get
caught short again
and use the Bliss
Fabgirlsixpack
Tummy-Toning Gel
(�, feelunique.com)
around your belly area
daily ? its combination of
caffeine, creatine and oat
kernel extract will get to work
on toning skin, leaving you
with a flaunt-worthy tummy
next time a heatwave hits.
FEET
EXERCISE: It isn?t easy to give your feet
a workout but you can exercise your
calves to help prevent cankles. Stand
with your feet wider than hip-width apart,
toes slightly turned out to the side. Bend
your knees over your toes and lower
your body into a squat. Stay in
this position but lift your heels
off the floor, keeping your abs
tight. Now press your heels
back to the floor, and back off
the floor 20 times.
FOOD: To keep feet from
drying out or going an
unflattering shade of purple, you
can help your toes look fab by
adding some oily fish to your diet.
Mackerel, salmon and sardines are all
excellent sources of vitamin D and
omega-3 oils, which keep the skin
elastic and improve circulation.1
FASHION: Mules will slide you into
summer with ease. The timeless style
can be worn with jeans or evening
dresses ? perfect. Orange mules,
(�.99, Bershka).
BEAUTY: Staying sandal-ready can
be a struggle when your trotters
are hidden for most of the year.
The solution? A DIY pedi. Use
Footner Exfoliating Socks
(�.99,
boots.com) once a
month to keep
heels feeling silky
smooth and flakefree, followed by a slick
of
high-shine
summery
polish such as OPI Nail
Lacquer in Living On
The
Bula-Vard!
(�.95,
opiuk.com).

SUNSHINE LAST WEEK? BE READY NEXT TIME
FACE
EXERCISE: Facial yoga can help tone
the tiny muscles in your face and
smooth out fine lines. Press both middle
fingers together in the inner
corner of the eyebrows, then
apply pressure to the outer
corners with your index
finger. Look up and raise
your lower eyelids upwards
to make a strong squint, then
relax. Repeat six times.
FOOD: Scoff your way to a
healthy glow by eating more
tomatoes. They contain lycopene, a
strong antioxidant that helps to protect
against sun damage. And make sure you
drink at least two litres of water a day.
FASHION: Give yourself a summer glow
by wearing sunny shades close to your
face. Bright hues will breathe life into
your complexion, whereas dark tones
can be draining. And a statement pair of
earrings transform any outfit from drab
to fab. Earrings (�.99, Zara).
BEAUTY: Tinted beads of sweat
on your forehead is never a
good look ? so when things
start to really heat up outside,
you will want to scrap
your full-coverage base and
opt for something a
little lighter. We are
so
hooked
on
Avene
Tinted
Mineral
Fluid SPF50+ (�.50,
boots.com) which not only
shields skin from ageing
UV rays but gives a light,
natural tint with a matte
finish.
ARMS
EXERCISE: Work on those triceps and
biceps to be ready for sleeveless tops.
Pick up two cans of beans and while
standing, turn them around so your
palms are facing up. Push your
elbows into your sides and bring
up the cans so they are
level with your shoulders.
Slowly lower back to the
start position 12 times.
Hold the cans together
above your head then
hinge at the elbows to slowly
lower them behind your head.
Bring back above your head, with
straight arms, 12 times.
FOOD: No one food will sort your bingo
wings but for arms like Michelle Obama,
inset, protein such as chicken or eggs is
your friend. It will support muscle toning
and feed your body to halt the wobbles.
FASHION: Jiggly arms? Fear not. Bardot
dresses or cut-out shoulders will allow
you to show a bit of skin, while keeping
bingo wings safely under wraps. Dress,
(�.99, ownthelook.com).
BEAUTY: Keep your guns in
good shape (or fake it,
anyway) with a
weekly
2-in-1
exfoliating and
firming
treatment like
the Nip+Fab
Upper Arm Fix
(�.59, superdrug.
com) followed by a
luminating gradual tan when
you have a spare ten minutes
post-shower ? such as
Tan-Luxe
The
Butter
Illuminating Tanning Butter
(�, cultbeauty.co.uk).
BUM
EXERCISE: Nothing tones your bum like
squats. You can do them anywhere.
Stand with feet just wider than shoulderwidth apart. Keeping chest
upright, slowly squat down,
pushing your hips back and
keeping back straight. Lower
until your flexibility allows,
hold for one second at the
bottom, then slowly pulse up
and down a few inches for 40
seconds. Take a ten-second
break, then go again.
FOOD: Eat foods rich in nutrition to
gain curves where you want them. Try
oat-based foods ? porridge, sugar-free
muesli or Oatibix ? for breakfast to feed
your muscles without the additives.
Bananas are a great snack to tone up
muscle and feed the body.
FASHION: Keep your bum looking pert
with waist-cinching trousers. Pulling in at
your waistline, the higher cut will make
your posterior look more rounded and it
lengthens your legs too.
Trousers, (�, Miss Selfridge).
BEAUTY:
Peach
perfection is not
just achieved in
the gym ? it?s
definitely worth
slathering on an
antioxidant-rich
cream every day too.
We love the Sol de
Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum
Cream, (�, harrods.com),
which is packed with natural
skin firmer acai and skinsmoothing cupuacu butter. It
will perfect your posterior ?
and smells like a dream.
LEGS
EXERCISE: Avoid bare leg dread and
tone up for Abbey Clancy-style pins. Try
a standing pulse ? perfect for
tightening the inner and outer
thighs and improving posture.
Stand with hands on hips, feet
together. Slightly bend your
left knee and lift your right leg
straight out to the side. Hold
it for one second at the top
then lower it back to nearly
touch your left foot before
lifting back out to the side.
Repeat this 20 times, then switch
legs. Rest for a minute then go again.
FOOD:
Watermelon?s
antioxidant
lycopene can aid circulation and smooth
cellulite. Green tea ups the metabolism
and prevents fat absorption.
FASHION: Longer lengths will ease you
into warmer weather. Look for an
asymmetric hem with a subtle split that
gives a glimpse of flesh. Green skirt,
(�, River Island).
BEAUTY: Work on flabby thighs
with a weekly dose of Legology
Exfo-Lite Stimulating Salts
For Legs (�,
spacenk.com)
paired with a
body brush to up
circulation and
zap cellulite. Make
sure you have an
instant tan in your
bathroom cabinet. such
as Isle Of Paradise
Disco Tan Instant Wash Off

can add an instant glow to
your shins.

Back in the day, anything too hippydippy was frowned upon.
I am a 31-year-old woman whose name
is pronounced ?Peter?, like the boy?s
name. I?ve spent my whole life spelling
my name and explaining how it?s said.
As a child, I hated it. I hated my mum
for calling me a silly boy?s name.
I was a runner-bean of a tomboy with
sticky-out ears and a bowl haircut, so
being called Peta added insult to injury.
My middle name is Louise so I used to
write the initial ?L? close to my first name
and hope people would think my name
was Petal.
Not happy when pals
used ?our? baby names
Mum said if I still wanted to be Petal at
16, we could talk about it.
She knew by then I would have come
to my senses. And eventually, I did.
When it came to naming my children, I
felt conflicted.
I didn?t want a name that would be on
the ?most popular? lists of that year but I
also didn?t want a name they had to
constantly explain.
I failed with my youngest Frey, as I
spend all day, every day, explaining his
name to people. But I LOVE it.
We thought about whether their
names would work if they were to be
brain surgeons, rock stars or cashiers.
Did it even matter? Is a name just a
name or can it affect people?s
perceptions of a person?
The naming process turns would-be
parents into MI5 agents who guard their
favourite names like national secrets,
petrified somebody else might swipe
them for their own kids first.
I am always pretty open about my
ideas. However, when people we knew
called their kids the same things we did,
I wasn?t hugely impressed. But I didn?t
lose sleep over it either.
Everybody has an opinion on names,
especially if you discuss them before
the birth.
But once the baby arrives, very few
will say ? to your face, anyway ? anything
other than: ?Aah, that?s lovely.?
These days, pretty much anything
goes. I believe even ?Hashtag? has been
used as a name. There isn?t the same
stigma in workplaces or schools.
So we are considering getting our
Scrabble board out to choose a name for
the one we have on the way.
But we must remember not to go too
crazy. The last thing we want is to have
another angry Petal on our hands.

BELIEVE it or not, I drove a
Lamborghini under a car
park barrier once and
christened it limboghini.
I?d have no chance in a Urus.
In a what? Urus. The new Rambo
Lambo.
The
new
crazy-b*****d
189mph super SUV for the world?s
rich people.
I?ll share some more daft numbers
in a bit but let?s start with some
history. Lamborghini has been
here before ? before Hummer
in fact.
It tried to flog the LM001
(Lamborghini Militare) pick-up
truck to soldiers in the
Middle East in the early 1980s
? but they didn?t want them.
Keh?
They
had
V12
Countach
engines in them, you buffoons.
No matter. Lamborghini then built
the leather-lined LM002 and sold
them to celebrities like Sylvester
Stallone, Arnie, Tina Turner and, er,
Colonel Gaddafi.
You can see shades of the LM002
in the Urus today ? most notably the
wheel arches and the T-shaped
dash. But, oddly, there?s no machine
gun mountings, not even on the
options list.
Now let?s talk numbers. The Urus
is powered by a four-litre twinturbo V8 ? yep, the
first turbocharged
Lambo
?
kicking out a monster 650hp and
850Nm torque. That?s a lot. It?s fourwheel drive, four-wheel steering and
harnesses all manner of voodoo to
flatten body roll and pitching. In full
lunatic mode, it catapults from
0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, 0-124mph in
12.8 seconds and just keeps on going
and going.
But it stops well too ? 62mph to
zero in just 33.7 metres. The brake
discs are bigger than the wheels
on a Corsa. And this XL-sized
Lambo is just as happy
hiking off-road. I tried it on
track and on gravel. I?m very
thorough.
Some will sniff at the Urus
and say: ?Bah, the engine is
from
a
Porsche
Cayenne.?
True. ?And the rear axle is
Bentley Bentayga.? Also true. ?And
the dual screens and hardware are
from an Audi A8.? Yes, correct again.
?And the electric window switches
are from a Golf.? He nods silently.
But this is faster, more advanced
and cooler, my friend. This is a
Lamborghini with lots of sharp
edges, hexagons, 23in wheels and
chunky cartoon controls.
Think of it like Mexican food.
As far as I know, quesadillas,
fajitas, enchiladas and burritos
have pretty much the same
ingredients
but
are
quite
different.
Would you pay �5,000 for a
Bentayga or a Urus? Me too.
FIRST
DRIVE
l
AMAZON can
now deliver
parcels to parked
cars in America
with couriers
given one-time
access to open
the boot via an app.
Full disclosure. I make no secret of
my passion for Lamborghini.
I?d have a Huracan Performante
tomorrow.
But at least with a Urus the family
don?t have to travel in the car
behind and you can fit eight flight
bags in the boot. And in ordinary
road mode, it?s quiet and polite and
as relaxing as a hot bath. Like an
Audi Q7, then. Sssh.
Which begs the question: Is it a
true Lamborghini?
The answer is Yes, Yes and No.
Yes, because in track mode it?s
loud, angry and nosebleed fast. It
thumps you in the back with every
gear change, just as a Lambo should.
And this is just the base engine.
There?s an even nuttier SV version
cooking in the oven.
Yes, because everyone wants to
take a photo of it ? even though it?s
not actually that wild-looking.
But sadly No, because it can?t
limbo. And all Lambos should be
lower than a snake?s belly.
SWIFT SWIFT
WIN
I?M not sure how, but this Lamborghini cap
fell into my bag. For your chance to win it,
follow me and like this photo on Instagram
@robgilluk by 6pm on April 29. Winner
chosen at random. Good luck.
THE new Suzuki Swift Sport is
almost brilliant. Here are five
reasons to buy ? and five reasons to
maybe look elsewhere.
Five reasons to buy:
1. Wafer light. This bantamweight
bruiser weighs just 975kg. Fix party
balloons to it and it?d float away.
Lightness improves everything.
Nerd fact: Suzuki?s first car in 1954
was called Suzulight.
2. Nimble. Power comes from a
140hp 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo
petrol, replacing the old naturally
aspirated 1.6. You lose that glorious
sound, of course, but you gain
low-end torque and you can?t argue
with the maths. Lightness + 140hp
= phenomenal power-to-weight
ratio. And more mpg.
3. Fun. Add the jewel-like chassis
and you can?t help but drive this
thing like a hire car. Think yellow rat
down drainpipe. Sharp six-speed
manual and it turns in a treat. Only a
whiff of understeer in full attack
mode.
4. Kit. Lots of it, all bundled into
one model grade. Everything is
standard, including adaptive cruise
control,
touchscreen
satnav,
reversing camera, lane keep assist,
sport seats, Apple CarPlay, 17in
alloys,
twin
exhausts
and
carbon fibre-style trim.
5. Roomy. OK, that might be a
leeetle stretch but clever packaging
means it?s big enough for gangly
teens in the back and the boot has
grown to 265 litres.
Five reasons NOT to buy:
1. Price. It?s gonna cost you
Key facts:
SUZUKI SWIFT SPORT
Price: �,999
Engine: 1.4-litre turbo petrol
0-62mph: 8.1 seconds
Top speed: 130mph
Economy: 47mpg
CO2: 135g/km
�,999, buddy. Excuse me? That?s
about two grand too much. The VW
Up! GTI is just as darty at �,755
and the Swift can?t hold a candle to
the Ford Fiesta ST at �,750.
2. Price. Pay monthly and it?s
�9 with NIL deposit. Sounds
decent, right? Until you check the
interweb and find a Corsa is �9 a
month with �9 upfront.
3. Interior. It?s bang average.
Nice red detailing but it?s not a
patch on a Polo or Fiesta and the
Suzuki Ignis is funkier. And while I?m
at it, the windscreen wipers are naff.
4. See reasons 1, 2 and 3.
5. See reasons 1, 2, 3 and 4.
VERDICT: Fun but overpriced.

to fund social care is to increase

I?m willing to bet most people,
not just pensioners, would rather
do that than hand over their
hard-worked-for homes to the
Government.
IT is only right that people who

Skills that looked too difficult to learn are suddenly easier for
you as Mars and Pluto merge. You can pass the toughest of
tests, both practical and written. In love, the key word is
believing, in each other and the relationship. A winning moon
suggests looking closely at unchecked lottery tickets.
A project that means two generations pledging their spare
time and maximum effort to improving a property is a gamble
but it could have a brilliant outcome. As Venus settles into
your sign, you are the zodiac?s hottest love attractor and your
challenge is to use this power wisely. A friend ?G? brings luck.
Pluto reverses through your relationships chart, setting up a
second chance to solve the mystery of how someone feels
about you. If your heart has a vacancy, a hot spot to find a new
partner is a cinema queue. A success that draws the family
closer starts when you go to see a show but end up on stage.
An offer of extra work may sound straightforward but as Pluto
and Mars are involved, it could turn into a major challenge
that stretches your talents further than ever before. Success
will be even sweeter, though. Psychic Neptune helps you
make a surprising love choice you know is meant to be.
The Venus effect helps put warmth and fun into friendships,
especially those that have been neglected. When it comes to
love, there could be a choice to make between a relationship
based on building a secure family life and a fast-moving
passion you will never forget.
With the moon and Neptune on opposite sides of the zodiac,
you have the full picture about who matters most in your
world. In family life, the person whose advice sounds tactless
is your most caring relative. As for love, the person who finds
it easiest to read your mind is The One.
Pluto, your personal planet guide, makes an awesome pairing
with Mars in the bright-ideas part of your chart. Now you can
turn those concepts into profit-makers. If you are ready to
meet your soulmate, a friend who can?t help matchmaking
gets it right this time. Luck will visit door 33.
As the sun switches on the most practical part of your chart,
even you will be surprised by your efficient plans for your
home and the people in it. They free up time for your own
projects, especially getting an additional qualification. If you
are looking for romance, new love wears a uniform.
You are the natural boss of the zodiac and with power planets
Saturn and Mars in your personal image chart, you come
across as serious, smart and determined. Plans you outline
today to achieve more and earn more include some real
winners. Meanwhile, a big love decision is made.
Your mind tunes into how others think and feel, so you can be
the peacemaker at home, a forgiving friend and a partner who
remixes a love relationship. If you start the day single, that
can change so quickly when a newcomer opens the door at a
friend?s house.
The clouds of uncertainty clear and you are ready to make
some exciting decisions. It starts with a family talk about
property. The light from the moon focuses on weddings and
other creative ways to celebrate your love. Still looking? The
One is someone whose achievements inspire you.

SMELLING THE COFFEE
Investors will receive shares in
both Costa and Premier Inn
once they have separated.
It comes after investor Elliott
revealed last week it had become
the largest shareholder with a
stake of over six per cent. It has
pushed for the break-up, along
with Sachem Head.
Whitbread CEO Alison Brittain said she expects Costa to
be a sizeable company in its
own right.
It could be worth between
�illion and �illion. Premier
Inn is valued at up to �illion.
She said yesterday: ?Given the
progress Whitbread is making,
we are confident that both
Premier Inn and Costa will soon
be
businesses
of
sufficient
strength, scale and capability to
enable them to thrive
as
independent
companies.?
Ahead of the
break-up,
she
intends to grow
both brands.

Frankie Derby trial four-timer
THOUGHTS of Derby glory will
have Crossed Frankie Dettori?s
mind at Epsom yesterday.
The jockey and trainer John Gosden
landed a fourth Blue Riband Trial in a
row as 11-4 shot Crossed Baton made
most of the running to see off My
Lord And Master by a head.
Dettori, who treated the crowd to a
flying dismount after his Listed success, said: ?He did it well. He got a little unbalanced on the track at the end
but it was nice.
?I expected there to be more pace. I
jumped to get in the box seat but
nobody took it off me.
?I had to really grab him at the end
TEMPLEGATE
the Point in the
H GET
1.30 at Beverley.
STRAIGHTOTHEPOINT
(nap) is well weighted on
the pick of last season?s
form. He has a great
record when making his
reappearance and a wide
draw is not as bad as it
used to be at this course.
MIGHTY THUNDER
(5.10 Perth, nb) won a
bumper here last summer.
He has struggled on deep
ground this winter but his
third behind Cool Mix at
Kelso in January makes
him very interesting.
AWAKE AT MIDNIGHT (2.45 Warwick,
treble) has been placed in
all four of his hurdles
starts. The step up in distance should do the trick.

leave this behind me.?
Townend did just that
with victory on his

POTTY EFFORT . . . Williams? no-look fluke
RON IN A
MILLION!
By HECTOR NUNNS
MARK WILLIAMS admits he will
never repeat his Ronaldinho-style
?no-look? wonder-fluke.
He potted the green escaping from
a snooker, while not even looking at
the cue ball, on his way to a 10-5
win over Jimmy Robertson.
Williams? Crucible show-stopper drew
comparisons with legendary Brazilian
footballer Ronaldinho.
He
would
famously
bamboozle
defenders by giving them the eyes
before offloading the ball.
But world No 7 Williams grinned:
?It was the biggest fluke you?ll ever
see ? total luck. No one can think I
played that! I?ll never do that again.
?I?ve tried that ?no-look? shot before
as there?s hardly any point looking
at the white when it?s that hard.
?The difference with Ronaldinho
and his no-look passes is he actually
tries to do what he ends up doing.?
Robertson, yet to win a match at
the World Championship, admits it
hurt watching the freak pot, saying:
?My heart sank.?
Two-time world champ Williams
now faces Rob Milkins, who stunned
Neil Robertson with a 10-5 victory.
The Aussie was the FIFTH ex-world
champion to crash out in round one.
John Higgins saw off one speed
merchant in Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, of
Thailand, 10-7 to set up a clash with
another one in Jack Lisowski.
Both four-time world champion
Higgins and Un-Nooh missed chances
to make a 147 and stake a claim for
the �,000 bonus.

Now the pair go head to

Sheffield showdown as titlefavourite O?Sullivan bids
for a sixth world crown.
World No 15 Carter, 38 ?
a winner of four ranking
titles ? will give his all to
end the losing streak.
He said: ?Beating me in
two finals, Ronnie is the
man who stopped me doing
what I most want in my

?In the four times I have
played him at the Crucible, he
has played really well.

With

He warned this is D-Day for
the fight, as Brit Joshua must
face WBA mandatory challenger
Alexander Povetkin unless a
four-belt unification clash
is in place.
The Matchroom boss
already offered Wilder
around �8m to fight
Joshua at Wembley later

That cut no ice with

Now
Hearn is hoping to

?I?ll just tell them how it is.

It is understood Hearn hopes
to secure a two-bout deal, with
one each in the USA and UK.
Two dates in September

clash could head to Las Vegas

SMART GUY . . . Klopp got tactics right
OTT PLOY
SO GOOD
The
ANALYST
DANNY HIGGINBOTHAM TALKS TACTICS
LIVERPOOL were tactically very
smart in their victory over Roma
on Tuesday night.
Jurgen Klopp?s team sat off the
Italian side and let them have the
ball.
Despite their hammering, Roma
had 51 per cent possession.
Letting them have the ball
meant Roma moved higher up the
pitch.
Then, when Liverpool won it
back, they looked to play forward
quickly and over or through the
away side?s high defensive line.
This allowed Liverpool?s rapid
front three to get in behind and in
on keeper Alisson. And that led to
at least three of their goals.
When Roma beat Barcelona 3-0
in Rome, the Italians had only 43
per cent possession.
That night Barca had lots of the
ball and tried to play through
Roma, who squeezed up and suffocated the Spanish team.
That was fine because Barca
offered no real threat in behind.
They do not tend to play passes
over the top.
The high press meant Roma won
the ball in dangerous areas as
Barca tried to play out from the
back and through the pitch, as is
their style.
Liverpool did not fall into that
trap and went long ? but intelligently long ? when it made sense.
Maybe Roma thought Liverpool
would play the way Barca did or
maybe they expected their back
three to cope with any long balls.
But Liverpool were too good and
picked them off time and again.
GERRS
From Back Page
go head-to-head with his former
Anfield chief Brendan Rodgers ?
who is in charge of bitter Old Firm
rivals Celtic.
Following his retirement from
football in 2016, Gerrard has been
coaching Liverpool?s Under-18s.
The Gers job would represent a
significant step up.
But it is understood the former
England
international
is
not
daunted by the size of the task or
the challenge of restoring the club
to its former glories.
Gers chairman Dave King was
pictured at Anfield on Tuesday as
he took in Liverpool?s Champions
League semi-final win over Roma.
Gerrard was also present in his
capacity as a BT Sports pundit.
Gers sacked Portuguese chief
Pedro Caixinha seven months ago
and interim boss Graeme Murty is
not popular.
Rangers were humbled 4-0 by
Celtic in the Scottish Cup semifinal this month.
And striker Kenny Miller and
skipper Lee Wallace were then
suspended as the club investigate
a dressing-room row with Murty.
KOP STAR
FASTING ?N
Ra-Mo-dan poser
for devout Muslim
MO SALAH faces a religious
dilemma if Liverpool reach
the Champions League final.
Salah is a practising Muslim
and
the
Islamic
festival
of
Ramadan, which requires fasting
during daylight hours for a
month, begins on May 15 ? ten
days before the Kiev showdown.
Shawki Allam, the Grand Mufti of
Egypt, has given permission to Salah
and his international team-mates in
the Egyptian squad to postpone their
fasting in the days building up to the
World Cup.
But Salah and his fellow Muslims in
the Liverpool dressing room ? Sadio
Mane and Emre Can ? will have a
decision to make if the Reds reach the
final: risk their physical condition by
denying themselves food and drink, or
fail to observe ?sawm? (fasting during
Ramadan), one of the five pillars of
Islam, for the sake of football.
And there is no reason to believe
Salah, whose name means ?worship?
in Arabic, will go against his faith.
He admitted in 2014 he had found
observing Ramadan difficult to combine
with pre-season training at Chelsea.
Salah said: ?Ramadan was a bit
difficult for me because we had two
training
sessions
every
day,
the
weather was very hot and I played in
every game.

what we need in these times.
?To see this wonderful young man,
full of joy, full of love, full of friendship, full of everything, in a world
where we all struggle to understand
all the things happening around

?Mo
is

Salah?s
high
profile
will

extra
pressure on
his decision
about
Ramadan.
Entrepreneurs
are
cashing in on
his success by
mass-producing
Ramadan lanterns in his image.
One Saudi Arabian newspaper has
reported that a senior local official
is proposing to give Salah a piece of
land in Islam?s most holy city,
Mecca, as reward for being named
PFA Player of the Year.
Fahd al-Rowky said: ?There
are several choices regarding
giving this piece of land.
?The way to go will be
determined
by
captain
Mohamed Salah as well as
the Saudi system.
?If the Saudi system
allows the land to be
owned by Salah, he
will
be
given
a
piece of land in
holy Mecca outside
Haram. The other
option will be to
have
a
mosque
built on the land
in his name.?
Egypt?s
first
World Cup match is
on June 15, the day
after Ramadan ends.
Grand Mufti Allam intends to issue
a fatwa stating that Muslims who are
travelling are permitted ?to postpone
their fasting?, which would give Salah
and
his
Egypt
team-mates
licence to eat and drink
normally
in
the
build-up to
the
tournament. But
unless Allam makes a
similar decree for Salah as
an individual, he would be
unable to eat or drink on the day of
the Champions League final until less
than an hour before kick-off.
Liverpool fans joke about becoming a
Muslim in honour of their hero. But his
faith may come into conflict with his
football if the Reds go all the way to
their eighth European Cup final.

FACING FINAL DILEMMA
EMMA
FURIOUS
Clubs appalled by
?vile? Roma thugs
By DAN KING
ROMA, Liverpool and
Uefa have slammed
the ?vile? pre-match
aggro which left a
home
supporter
seriously injured.
THREE CHEERS . . . Mo

against Roma on Tuesday
Two Italians in

of
the

violence broke out
in front of the

A Liverpool statement
said:
?The

priority is the safety of all
fans attending matches.
?Supporters attending a
game should never be subjected to an environment
of violence or attack.?
Reds fans are now fearful
of
what

them
in
Rome
before Wednesday?s semifinal, second leg.
There has been a long
history of trouble between
Roma thugs and English
clubs in previous years.
Liverpool,

been the target of attacks
in the Italian capital.
Yet Uefa said: ?We are
deeply shocked by the vile

will be dealt with utmost
severity by the authorities.

Home supporters could
also face police and Uefa
action.

before
the match saw Liverpool
fans light flares and climb
on top of police vans,
despite appeals from the

been settled.
Pretty much every boarding house
There was no attacking masterclass like on Merseyside 24 hours
earlier, but Marco Asensio?s winner
must make Madrid favourites to
reach the final and attempt a
Champions League hat-trick.
Real boss Zinedine Zidane warned
afterwards that anything can happen
in the second leg of this semi.
Nevertheless,
Bayern
need
a
miracle in Madrid on Tuesday as
goals from Marcelo and Asensio outweighed Joshua Kimmich?s opener.
After watching from home, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not
have lost too much sleep and will
feel his team is capable of delivering
some damage to either side.
By his sky-high standards, Cristiano Ronaldo did not have the best
of games but maybe he was merely
saving himself to try to outshine a
certain Egyptian striker next month.
While Real?s fans left the Allianz
Arena in jubilant mood, they will
have been blissfully unaware that
in the Ukrainian capital is already
full ? and the email addresses on
the booking forms all belong to
Liverpool fans.
Madrid, who scraped past Juventus
in the quarter-finals, were uninspiring at times last night but still
found a way to win.
Zidane said: ?We can be happy
with the result. We had difficulties and we played better in the
second half.
?It is not over yet. As Juventus
showed us, anything is possible.
You cannot say it is decided. We
will have to suffer in the second
leg as well.?
A major blow for Bayern
was the loss of both
Arjen Robben and Jerome
Boateng to injury in the
first half, but sandwiched
between that was Kimmich?s opener on 28 minutes. The defender started
the move with a pass to Thomas
Muller, tore down the right and then
received an outstanding ball from
James Rodriguez.
Kimmich took one touch and fired
in a right-footed effort that deceived
keeper Keylor Navas.
Real full-back Marcelo was also
caught out of position but at least
he levelled with a quality strike a
minute before the break.
Dani Carvajal headed the ball
across the edge of the area, Bayern
midfielder Javi Martinez made a
complete mess of a clearance and
Marcelo thumped the ball home
with a first-time effort.

half-time sub for the injured Isco, to
clip home a left-foot shot.
Bayern were left to rue missed
chances. Franck Ribery would have
made it 2-0 in the first half had he
been able to control the ball.
The Frenchman was also denied
by two decent saves from Navas,
while the misfiring Robert Lewandowski wasted a great chance.
Bayern captain Muller said: ?We
were too naive.
?We had a lot of chances and
went in at 1-1, but it was 2-1 soon
after the break. The result could
have been a lot different.?
Bayern?s
veteran
coach
Jupp
Heynckes, 72, said: ?To have the two
injuries made it difficult. The first
goal was a present to Real ? and so
was the second.
?We had so many chances to win
and we should not have lost.?
An unsurprising feature of this
semi-final was Gareth Bale remaining on the subs? bench along with
Karim Benzema.
Zidane said: ?Bale has been doing
good and some matches are left and
I count on Gareth the same. Maybe
people think I am not counting on
him, but that is not true.?

?big? dig

ALEXIS SANCHEZ has had

The Chile star made a
dramatic exit from North
London to United in the
January transfer window.
And ahead of his first

Sanchez claimed Arsene
Wenger?s men lack a desire
to win the big trophies.
He said: ?It?s very

club with more history.
?United is a big club, to
which I am still adapting.?
He had his best game

CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
GLARING HOLE IN EURO CV
HEARTACHE . . .
keeper Lehmann
sees red in 2006 final
JUST like anybody in the
job market, Arsene Wenger is
keen to highlight the positives
on his CV.
The outgoing Arsenal boss will
reach a staggering 250 matches in
European club competition next week.
Yet the glaring gap in his record
says that he has never won a single
European trophy.
Wenger, who has lost finals in the
Champions League, Uefa Cup and
old European Cup Winners? Cup
with Monaco, has a final shot at
Arsenal glory in the Europa League.
Yet his men will start tonight?s
semi-final against Atletico Madrid as
underdogs to reach the final.
This despite being valued at three
times the financial worth of their
Spanish opponents on the last global
football rich list.
Atletico have reached two Champions League finals in the last four
years ? narrowly losing to Real both
times ? and have won the Europa
League twice in the last decade.
As proof of Wenger?s underachievement on the European stage, Atletico
provide an excellent comparison.
Yet the Frenchman, desperate for
another chance to manage a powerful European club, was talking up
his greatest achievement on the
Continent ? reaching the 2006
Champions League final.
Then, a young Gunners side
reached the final without conceding
a goal in the knockout stage ?
defeating Real Madrid?s Galacticos
and Juventus.
But it all ended in a heartbreaking loss to Barcelona when keeper
Jens Lehmann was sent off.
Asked to name his favourite Euro
match, Wenger, 68, said: ?I played
over 200 games in Europe so it?s
very difficult to single one out.
?Maybe when we knocked Real out
when they had a great team with
Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, David
Beckham, Luis Figo.
?We had a very young team and
didn?t concede a goal against them.

had Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David
Trezeguet up front, and Patrick
Vieira.
?We went to the final without
conceding, then lost with ten men in
an unfortunate way.?
Wenger agreed losing in 2006,
after a Uefa Cup final defeat on
penalties by Galatasaray in 2000,
was a source of intense frustration.
He said: ?Yes, we lost two finals.
But we have to say they were under
very special circumstances.
?When you look across Europe,
with the financial power everybody
has, it is not easy now.
?You have to be realistic. If you
look at Arsenal and the number of
games they play in Europe in their
whole history, you would see it is
not Real Madrid.
?The
club
has
become
very
demanding ? but the longer history
of the club is not that bright.?
The Frenchman?s achievement in
qualifying for the Champions League
in 19 successive seasons should not
be underestimated.
But they did not win a knockout
tie in their final seven campaigns.
Wenger insists there is no such
thing as a ?perfect goodbye?.
But he does admit a semi-final
defeat would be an anti-climactic
end to his 22-year reign.
That would mean a nondescript
league
match
at
Huddersfield
would replace a final in Lyon as his
swansong.
And Wenger said: ?To qualify
for the Champions League for
19 consecutive years is not as easy
as it looked.
?It would feel an anti-climax to
lose, of course. That?s why we
want to give our absolute all.?
As for the challenge of Atletico,
Wenger said: ?If you look at the
table, they are second best in Spain.
?It will demand total commitment
as they have no real weak point.?
Winning this tie, plus a final against
Marseille or Red Bull Salzburg,
would mean Wenger bequeathing his
successor a Champions League spot.
And it is not beyond the realms
of possibility that he could be
competing against his beloved club
in the seasons ahead.
He said: ?On the list of the guys
who have played in Europe, I am
quite high up, if not the highest.
?So my target is to play in Europe
again ? I hope these are not my
last European games.?

SIMEONE . . . surprise news
By DAVE KIDD
ARSENAL bogeyman Diego
Costa is set to return for
Atletico Madrid in tonight?s
Europa League semi-final.
The
former
Chelsea
striker, 29, has recovered
from a hamstring injury.
Atletico
boss
Diego
Simeone, who is
about
to replace
Arsene Wenger as the
longest-serving
manager
among Europe?s top clubs,
talked of his ?admiration?
for the Frenchman.
But he then threatened
to unleash his brutish
forward on the Gunners.
Simeone, who has led
Atletico for six years,
said: ?Both in England
and in Spain many teams
have suffered at the
hands of Diego Costa, not
just Arsenal.
?His
fitness
has
improved. He trained hard
on Tuesday and Wednesday and, based on what
we see, he will either play
from the start or from the
bench.?
Costa
scored
three
goals in six games for
Chelsea against Arsenal.
But he was involved in
incidents which earned
red
cards
for
Per
Mertesacker and Gabriel
Paulista and often bullied
their defenders.
The
Brazilian-born
Spaniard was said to have
travelled to London only
as a spectator.
But Simeone sprang the
surprise at his press conference and Costa then
trained at the Emirates.
Asked if Costa travelled
to lift his team-mates or
intimidate
Arsenal,
Simeone added: ?Knowing
Diego Costa, both of those!
?He?s motivated but we
are all well-motivated
and determined.?

ARSENE ON HIS LIFE AFTER ARSENAL
FOR 22 years, Arsene Wenger
had a pistol to his head.
The pressure to win never abated.
But that adrenalin rush on matchday,
when the manager is in the firing line and
lives or dies by his decisions, will be gone
when Wenger walks away from Arsenal
for the final time.
Wenger admitted: ?I am a bit like the
guy who plays Russian roulette and
suddenly has no gun any more. I will see
how much I miss that gun.
?I don?t know what I will do next. I
would like to have a little bit more
freedom to decide what I want to do with
my life.
?We live in extreme situations but you
learn to dominate your emotions.
?Let?s not forget I started as a manager
at 33 years of age, when I was responsible
for a top-level team (Nancy), so that is 35
years ago.
?When I started, I thought I would never
survive in this job but I learned to keep
control of myself.?
When the time comes to watch Arsenal,
Wenger?s beloved Arsenal, from the stands
it will not be easy.
When enough water has passed under
the bridge there will be an invitation from
chief executive Ivan Gazidis, or Stan
Kroenke, or his old buddy David Dein.
He really wants to be in the dugout,
directing traffic in the technical area in
front of full houses at the Emirates.
Those days will soon be behind him.
Wenger admitted: ?I don?t know when I
will be ready to come back to Arsenal. I
have not had a break for 35 years.
?I honestly don?t know what I will do
but if people want me they will find my
phone number.
?I will continue to work, that?s for sure.
My pride has always been to give my best
to where I?m employed until the last day

of my contract. In this job, you can look
around for something that doesn?t exist. I
don?t know how addicted I am.?
To leave this all behind will be tough.
Wenger
designed
Arsenal?s
training
ground to his own exacting spec and had
similar influence over the 60,000-seater
Emirates Stadium.
When he leaves for the final time, when
he drives his beloved Lexus out of the
gates at London Colney, the Frenchman
will have to let go.
Wenger added: ?I wish it all goes well.
You do not give 22 years of your life for
something, then go away and want things
to collapse, not at my age.
?Maybe, when you have a big ego at 40,
you think that the world cannot live
without you.
?At my age (68), you understand that the
world continues and you wish that it
continues better.
?At least I think that the guy can work
in a positive environment.
?Arsenal will not be short of candidates.
That shows you as well that the place is a
good place.
?It is green outside, there are nice trees
and the good grass. Fantastic. No pollution
? until the press conference starts.?
Touch�. Wenger was back to his mischievous best yesterday, a nostalgic return
to the days when Arsenal?s manager ruled
the roost in English football.
He wants to leave Arsenal a winner,
giving the fans what they want ? Champions League football ? before signing off
for good.
Wenger added: ?To qualify for the

movement when

about... especially from crosses out wide.
Champions League for 20 consecutive
years is not as easy as it looks.
?It would really feel like an anti-climax
if we do not beat Atletico Madrid and
that?s why we want to give our absolute
all to have a chance of going to the final.
?You?re never sure you are doing the
right thing, but life is interesting because
you have to deal with different situations.
?I?ve worked with some people here for
22 years.
?We were together through some difficult
moments and we have a lot of emotional
contact.
?It will be a bit difficult for me and
for some people, as well, because we
worked together for such a long
time.
?But my job finishes in May and
then I will go to the World Cup
to watch England win it . . . on
penalties.?
If only.
Wenger will be free of Arsenal
by then, waiting for the club to
announce his successor.
So many names are in the frame
with Luis Enrique, Max Allegri,
Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and
Mikel Arteta jockeying for position.
He added: ?Is the job for people
who worked here before? That is
even better. There are many players
who have the qualities but some of
them are in a job.
?I won?t influence the choice but I
will stand behind the decision.
?The need is to make the right
decision, even if you have to be
bold. Personally, that?s what I wish.?
Arsenal will soon take aim, settling on their top target after completing the recruitment process.
After that, Wenger will be a
gun for hire.

BOWING OUT . . .
Arsene Wenger
KROENKE . . . tough call
FARCE
From Back Page
direction when a statement
appeared
on
Arsenal?s website, attributed to Wenger.
It said: ?After reaching
agreement
about
my
departure, I was happy for
the club to decide when
to announce.
?I wish to make it clear
the
timing
of
my
announcement was right.?
Wenger?s U-turn sent
Twitter into meltdown.
Arsenal
legend
Ian
Wright
had
earlier
tweeted: ?Hearing Arsene
admit that he was sacked
is quite sad.
?But I would like to take
this opportunity to say to
all the people who said I
was talking s**t, to go
f**k themselves.?
Wenger is leaving the
Gunners at the end of the
season following negotiations with majority shareholder
Stan
Kroenke
about his pay-off.
He is being paid the
final year of his contract
in exchange for a dignified, respectful exit.
That has been jeopardised by Wenger, 68,
repeatedly claiming he is
not tired, does not want
to stop working and by
yesterday?s admission that
he was not ready to walk
away from Arsenal.
During the press conference ahead of tonight?s
Europa League semi-final,
first leg with Atletico
Madrid,
Wenger
also
revealed he has been hurt
by Arsenal fans demanding his removal.
He added: ?When some
people are unhappy it is
not always a majority, but
they get the voice of the
press and then it looks
like a majority.
?We live in a very
emotional society.
?Some people can make
the difference between
moments of unhappiness
and global satisfaction for
what I brought to the
club.?
Wenger also admitted
he will not have any input
into his successor.
Former Barcelona chief
Luis Enrique is one of a
number
of
managers
being
considered
by
Arsenal chief Kroenke.
Wenger added: ?I have a
high opinion of Luis
Enrique. I do not want to
influence the job for the
next manager but of
course I have a high
opinion of him.?
Patrick Vieira says he is
ready if the Gunners ask
him to be their new boss.
The ex-Arsenal skipper,
41, who manages New
York City, said: ?It is an
honour to be mentioned.
?It
was
somewhere
I spent nine years and I
love the club. I?m ready to
coach any side in Europe.?

WEBSITE of theWEEK
FINDING the right garage to repair your car
can be a challenge and that is where
whocanfixmycar.com comes in.
The new site aims to make shopping
around for the best mechanic and the
lowest price in your area easier, so you
know if you are getting a good deal.
Simply submit your location and the
work you require, then the site sends
quotes from local specialists straight to
your inbox. Drivers can then compare
prices, reviews and locations, and even
book online. Spokesman Louis Butcher,
left, says: ?The site forces garages to be
transparent and competitive with their
prices, which saves families both time
and money.?
Here are Louis? top three tips for families
to keep their car on the road on a budget:
Make sure your car is serviced at least
once a year or after every 10,000 miles
if you own an older vehicle.
This does cost but will save you money in
the long-term by spotting faults early. And
!
if you want to sell your car, a complete
service logbook will add value.
Regularly check and top up your tyres
with air, as low tyre pressure can
result in using more fuel than you need.
Most petrol stations will have a pressure
station and some offer the service for free.
If not it usually only costs 20p.
Declutter your car. Having excess
weight in your vehicle means you use
more fuel, so shift heavy items like prams
and store in the house or garage.

Salah said: ?Ramadan was a bit
difficult for me because we had two

sessions
every
day,
the
weather was very hot and I played in
every game.
?I wasn?t even able to drink water
until 9.30pm. Although I am used to it,

Liverpool
boss
Jurgen
Klopp
revealed in an interview with Channel
4 News how Salah, Mane and Can
maintain their faith while being
professional footballers.
Klopp said: ?Salah is a Muslim. He?s
doing all the things that Muslims do.
?Before a game, washing procedures
and stuff like that.
?We come a minute or two minutes
early in the dressing room so that he
can be ready for the game. It?s him,

anti-Muslim bigotry. The Liverpool
boss added: ?It?s fantastic. It?s exactly
what we need in these times.
?To see this wonderful young man,
full of joy, full of love, full of friendship, full of everything, in a world
where we all struggle to understand
all the things happening around
this planet.
?Mo
is
the
perfect
ambassador for Egypt,
for the whole Arab
world.?
Salah?s
high
profile
will
put
extra
pressure on
his decision
about
Ramadan.
Entrepreneurs
are
cashing in on
his success by
mass-producing
Ramadan lanterns in his image.
One Saudi Arabian newspaper has
reported that a senior local official
is proposing to give Salah a piece of
land in Islam?s most holy city,
Mecca, as reward for being named
PFA Player of the Year.
Fahd al-Rowky said: ?There
are several choices regarding
giving this piece of land.
?The way to go will be
determined
by
captain
Mohamed Salah as well as
the Saudi system.
?If the Saudi system
allows the land to be
owned by Salah, he
will
be
given
a
piece of land in
holy Mecca outside
Haram. The other
option will be to
have
a
mosque
built on the land
in his name.?
Egypt?s
first
World Cup match is
on June 15, the day
after Ramadan ends.
Grand Mufti Allam intends to issue
a fatwa stating that Muslims who are
travelling are permitted ?to postpone
their fasting?, which would give Salah
and
his
Egypt
team-mates
licence to eat and drink
normally
in
the
build-up to
the
tournament. But
unless Allam makes a
similar decree for Salah as
an individual, he would be
unable to eat or drink on the day of
the Champions League final until less
than an hour before kick-off.
Liverpool fans joke about becoming a
Muslim in honour of their hero. But his
faith may come into conflict with his
football if the Reds go all the way to
their eighth European Cup final.

FACING FINAL DILEMMA
EMMA
FURIOUS
Clubs appalled by
?vile? Roma thugs
By DAN KING
ROMA, Liverpool and
Uefa have slammed
the ?vile? pre-match
aggro which left a
home
supporter
seriously injured.
THREE CHEERS . . . Mo
Salah and Roberto Firmino
celebrate after Sadio Mane
put Liverpool 3-0 up
against Roma on Tuesday
Two Italians in
their
20s
were
arrested on suspicion
of
the
attempted murder
of a 53-year-old as
violence broke out
in front of the
Kop end shortly
before kick-off on
Tuesday.
The injured man
? named as Sean
Cox from Dunboyne in Ireland ?
is believed to have
been hit with a
belt and fallen.
Last
night
he
was being treated
at Walton Neurological
Centre,
where his condition was described
as critical.
Roma said in a
statement:
?We
condemn
the
abhorrent behaviour of a
minority of
travelling
fans
who
brought
shame
on
the
club
after getting
involved
in
clashes
with
Liverpool
supporters before last
night?s fixture.

THREE
CHEERS
LIVERPOOL?S front three of Mo Salah, Roberto
Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored a
stunning 88 goals between them so far this
season in all competitions.
Their combined five goals on Tuesday
night have put them within touching
distance of the Champions League final.
However, our stats (right) show they still
trail Barcelona?s dream-team front three of
Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez from
the 2015-16 season by 43 goals. But they
have played 15 games fewer . . .
VICIOUS . . . Roma thugs attack Liverpool supporter
place for this type of vile
behaviour in football.?
Liverpool skipper Jordan
Henderson
added:
?The
thoughts and prayers of all
the players are with the
Liverpool fan.
?He came to watch a
football match and support our team.?
A Liverpool statement
said:
?The
club?s
first
priority is the safety of all
fans attending matches.
?Supporters attending a
game should never be subjected to an environment
of violence or attack.?
Reds fans are now fearful
of
what
reception
awaits
them
in
Rome
before Wednesday?s semifinal, second leg.
There has been a long
history of trouble between
Roma thugs and English
clubs in previous years.
Liverpool,
Middlesbrough,
Manchester
United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea have all
been the target of attacks
in the Italian capital.
Yet Uefa said: ?We are
deeply shocked by the vile
attack that occurred.
?The perpetrators of this
ignominious attack have
no place in and around
football and we trust they
will be dealt with utmost
severity by the authorities.
?Uefa
is
waiting
to
receive full reports before
deciding
on
potential
disciplinary charges.?
Home supporters could
also face police and Uefa
action.
Chaotic
scenes
before
the match saw Liverpool
fans light flares and climb
on top of police vans,
despite appeals from the
authorities and Kop boss
Jurgen Klopp for calm.
Nine arrests were made
in total.
Three
other
Italians
were nicked on suspicion
of affray, possession of
offensive
weapons
or
criminal damage.
Four men from the UK
were arrested on suspicion
of assault, affray, being
drunk and disorderly and
possession of drugs.

ALL OVER . . . Oxlade-Chamberlain is stretchered off
JURGEN KLOPP says his Liverpool squad is down
to the bare bones.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ? who is out for the
season ? joins fellow midfielders Emre Can and
Adam Lallana on the sidelines.
Klopp must now juggle his depleted resources to
ensure the Reds retain their place in the top four
while keeping an eye on next Wednesday?s
Champions League semi-final second leg in Rome.
The Reds chief said: ?The biggest problem we have
is that we lost Oxlade-Chamberlain who played
brilliant for as long as he was on the pitch. Thank

but that?s a serious injury
and with our squad situ- he is confident in Liveration at the moment it?s pool?s ability to score in
of course not really cool. Rome.
He said: ?It?s 5-2, all
?And we all know the
best thing is that if you good. It?s the first leg. We
want to go to semi-final, won against City 3-0 and
finals and win important everybody told me we are
games in the league, you almost through.
?Now
I
see
in
need a full squad.
?We have pretty much everyone?s faces that it?s
the opposite of a full going to be a little bit
squad. But obviously the difficult with what Roma
Liverpool way is a little did to Barcelona.
?I know the rules as
bit harder.
?So we have to find well and if they win 3-0
solutions and be creative then they are through.
?But if you want to win
and that?s what we will
3-0 you have to play
try to be.?
Klopp admits the two really offensive and if
late goals Roma scored at you play really offensive
Anfield have opened the against us you need to
door for the Italian side deal with the counter
to repeat their incredible attack.
?So I?m pretty sure we

from

will also be forced to sit
out a possible European
Cup final in Kiev ? but
to be sidelined for yet
another World Cup is a
massive blow.
Injury also saw him
fail to play at the 2014
World Cup in Brazil and
Euro 2016 in France.
Ox tweeted: ?Absolutely
devastated to have picked
up this injury at such a
crucial time in the season.
?Gutted I won?t be able
to play any further part
now in our Champions
League run for Liverpool,
and also the World Cup

?I know we have what

Ox hopes to be fit for
the start of next season.
And a Liverpool statement read: ?The extent of
the injury means OxladeChamberlain is set to
miss the remainder of
the campaign for Liverpool, as well as the
World

finals
in
Russia with England.
?He was assessed by
the club?s medical team
at Melwood on Wednesday morning and no

placed upon his return to
action at this stage.
?However,
OxladeChamberlain
will
now
begin a rehabilitation programme to enable him to
reach full fitness again as
soon as possible, returning to action next season.?
He sustained the latest
injury when attempting
to tackle Roma?s Aleksandar Kolarov.
It was a cruel blow as
he had found his form
after initially struggling
having left Arsenal.
He
was
certain
to
make the Three Lions
World Cup squad and
this could open the door
for another injury-jinxed
player, Jack Wilshere.

been settled.
Pretty much every boarding house
There was no attacking masterclass like on Merseyside 24 hours
earlier, but Marco Asensio?s winner
must make Madrid favourites to
reach the final and attempt a
Champions League hat-trick.
Real boss Zinedine Zidane warned
afterwards that anything can happen
in the second leg of this semi.
Nevertheless,
Bayern
need
a
miracle in Madrid on Tuesday as
goals from Marcelo and Asensio outweighed Joshua Kimmich?s opener.
After watching from home, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not
have lost too much sleep and will
feel his team is capable of delivering
some damage to either side.
By his sky-high standards, Cristiano Ronaldo did not have the best
of games but maybe he was merely
saving himself to try to outshine a
certain Egyptian striker next month.
While Real?s fans left the Allianz
Arena in jubilant mood, they will
have been blissfully unaware that
in the Ukrainian capital is already
full ? and the email addresses on
the booking forms all belong to
Liverpool fans.
Madrid, who scraped past Juventus
in the quarter-finals, were uninspiring at times last night but still
found a way to win.
Zidane said: ?We can be happy
with the result. We had difficulties and we played better in the
second half.
?It is not over yet. As Juventus
showed us, anything is possible.
You cannot say it is decided. We
will have to suffer in the second
leg as well.?
A major blow for Bayern
was the loss of both
Arjen Robben and Jerome
Boateng to injury in the
first half, but sandwiched
between that was Kimmich?s opener on 28 minutes. The defender started
the move with a pass to Thomas
Muller, tore down the right and then
received an outstanding ball from
James Rodriguez.
Kimmich took one touch and fired
in a right-footed effort that deceived
keeper Keylor Navas.
Real full-back Marcelo was also
caught out of position but at least
he levelled with a quality strike a
minute before the break.
Dani Carvajal headed the ball
across the edge of the area, Bayern
midfielder Javi Martinez made a
complete mess of a clearance and
Marcelo thumped the ball home
with a first-time effort.

half-time sub for the injured Isco, to
clip home a left-foot shot.
Bayern were left to rue missed
chances. Franck Ribery would have
made it 2-0 in the first half had he
been able to control the ball.
The Frenchman was also denied
by two decent saves from Navas,
while the misfiring Robert Lewandowski wasted a great chance.
Bayern captain Muller said: ?We
were too naive.
?We had a lot of chances and
went in at 1-1, but it was 2-1 soon
after the break. The result could
have been a lot different.?

Heynckes, 72, said: ?To have the two
injuries made it difficult. The first
goal was a present to Real ? and so
was the second.
?We had so many chances to win
and we should not have lost.?
An unsurprising feature of this
semi-final was Gareth Bale remaining on the subs? bench along with
Karim Benzema.
Zidane said: ?Bale has been doing
good and some matches are left and
I count on Gareth the same. Maybe
people think I am not counting on
him, but that is not true.?

?big? dig
By PHIL CADDEN
ALEXIS SANCHEZ has had
a dig at Arsenal, telling
his old team Manchester
United they are a bigger
club with more history.
The Chile star made a
dramatic exit from North
London to United in the
January transfer window.
And ahead of his first
reunion with the Gunners
at Old Trafford on Sunday,
Sanchez claimed Arsene
Wenger?s men lack a desire
to win the big trophies.
He said: ?It?s very
different here. United is a
club with more history.
?United is a big club, to
which I am still adapting.?
He had his best game
yet, scoring in the FA Cup
semi-final win over Spurs.
And he added: ?Saturday?s match was the most
perfect since I joined ?
and that makes me very
happy for what lies ahead.?

JOSE MOURINHO has

?I have lots of respect

By DAVE

CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
GLARING HOLE IN EURO CV
HEARTACHE . . .
keeper Lehmann
sees red in 2006 final
JUST like anybody in the
job market, Arsene Wenger is
keen to highlight the positives
on his CV.
The outgoing Arsenal boss will
reach a staggering 250 matches in
European club competition next week.
Yet the glaring gap in his record
says that he has never won a single
European trophy.
Wenger, who has lost finals in the
Champions League, Uefa Cup and
old European Cup Winners? Cup
with Monaco, has a final shot at
Arsenal glory in the Europa League.
Yet his men will start tonight?s
semi-final against Atletico Madrid as
underdogs to reach the final.
This despite being valued at three
times the financial worth of their
Spanish opponents on the last global
football rich list.
Atletico have reached two Champions League finals in the last four
years ? narrowly losing to Real both
times ? and have won the Europa
League twice in the last decade.
As proof of Wenger?s underachievement on the European stage, Atletico
provide an excellent comparison.
Yet the Frenchman, desperate for
another chance to manage a powerful European club, was talking up
his greatest achievement on the
Continent ? reaching the 2006
Champions League final.
Then, a young Gunners side
reached the final without conceding
a goal in the knockout stage ?
defeating Real Madrid?s Galacticos
and Juventus.
But it all ended in a heartbreaking loss to Barcelona when keeper
Jens Lehmann was sent off.
Asked to name his favourite Euro
match, Wenger, 68, said: ?I played
over 200 games in Europe so it?s
very difficult to single one out.
?Maybe when we knocked Real out
when they had a great team with
Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, David
Beckham, Luis Figo.
?We had a very young team and
didn?t concede a goal against them.
?And we also played Juventus who

had Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David
Trezeguet up front, and Patrick
Vieira.
?We went to the final without
conceding, then lost with ten men in
an unfortunate way.?
Wenger agreed losing in 2006,
after a Uefa Cup final defeat on
penalties by Galatasaray in 2000,
was a source of intense frustration.
He said: ?Yes, we lost two finals.
But we have to say they were under
very special circumstances.
?When you look across Europe,
with the financial power everybody
has, it is not easy now.
?You have to be realistic. If you
look at Arsenal and the number of
games they play in Europe in their
whole history, you would see it is
not Real Madrid.
?The
club
has
become
very
demanding ? but the longer history
of the club is not that bright.?
The Frenchman?s achievement in
qualifying for the Champions League
in 19 successive seasons should not
be underestimated.
But they did not win a knockout
tie in their final seven campaigns.
Wenger insists there is no such
thing as a ?perfect goodbye?.
But he does admit a semi-final
defeat would be an anti-climactic
end to his 22-year reign.
That would mean a nondescript
league
match
at
Huddersfield
would replace a final in Lyon as his
swansong.
And Wenger said: ?To qualify
for the Champions League for
19 consecutive years is not as easy
as it looked.
?It would feel an anti-climax to
lose, of course. That?s why we
want to give our absolute all.?
As for the challenge of Atletico,
Wenger said: ?If you look at the
table, they are second best in Spain.
?It will demand total commitment
as they have no real weak point.?
Winning this tie, plus a final against
Marseille or Red Bull Salzburg,
would mean Wenger bequeathing his
successor a Champions League spot.
And it is not beyond the realms
of possibility that he could be
competing against his beloved club
in the seasons ahead.
He said: ?On the list of the guys
who have played in Europe, I am
quite high up, if not the highest.
?So my target is to play in Europe
again ? I hope these are not my
last European games.?

SIMEONE . . . surprise news
By DAVE KIDD
ARSENAL bogeyman Diego
Costa is set to return for
Atletico Madrid in tonight?s
Europa League semi-final.
The
former
Chelsea
striker, 29, has recovered
from a hamstring injury.
Atletico
boss
Diego
Simeone, who is
about
to replace
Arsene Wenger as the
longest-serving
manager
among Europe?s top clubs,
talked of his ?admiration?
for the Frenchman.
But he then threatened
to unleash his brutish
forward on the Gunners.
Simeone, who has led
Atletico for six years,
said: ?Both in England
and in Spain many teams
have suffered at the
hands of Diego Costa, not
just Arsenal.
?His
fitness
has
improved. He trained hard
on Tuesday and Wednesday and, based on what
we see, he will either play
from the start or from the
bench.?
Costa
scored
three
goals in six games for
Chelsea against Arsenal.
But he was involved in
incidents which earned
red
cards
for
Per
Mertesacker and Gabriel
Paulista and often bullied
their defenders.
The
Brazilian-born
Spaniard was said to have
travelled to London only
as a spectator.
But Simeone sprang the
surprise at his press conference and Costa then
trained at the Emirates.
Asked if Costa travelled
to lift his team-mates or
intimidate
Arsenal,
Simeone added: ?Knowing
Diego Costa, both of those!
?He?s motivated but we
are all well-motivated
and determined.?

Gun to my head
ARSENE ON HIS LIFE AFTER ARSENAL
FOR 22 years, Arsene Wenger
had a pistol to his head.
The pressure to win never abated.
But that adrenalin rush on matchday,
when the manager is in the firing line and
lives or dies by his decisions, will be gone
when Wenger walks away from Arsenal
for the final time.
Wenger admitted: ?I am a bit like the
guy who plays Russian roulette and
suddenly has no gun any more. I will see
how much I miss that gun.
?I don?t know what I will do next. I
would like to have a little bit more
freedom to decide what I want to do with
my life.
?We live in extreme situations but you
learn to dominate your emotions.
?Let?s not forget I started as a manager
at 33 years of age, when I was responsible
for a top-level team (Nancy), so that is 35
years ago.
?When I started, I thought I would never
survive in this job but I learned to keep
control of myself.?
When the time comes to watch Arsenal,
Wenger?s beloved Arsenal, from the stands
it will not be easy.
When enough water has passed under
the bridge there will be an invitation from
chief executive Ivan Gazidis, or Stan
Kroenke, or his old buddy David Dein.
He really wants to be in the dugout,
directing traffic in the technical area in
front of full houses at the Emirates.
Those days will soon be behind him.
Wenger admitted: ?I don?t know when I
will be ready to come back to Arsenal. I
have not had a break for 35 years.
?I honestly don?t know what I will do
but if people want me they will find my
phone number.
?I will continue to work, that?s for sure.
My pride has always been to give my best
to where I?m employed until the last day

of my contract. In this job, you can look
around for something that doesn?t exist. I
don?t know how addicted I am.?
To leave this all behind will be tough.
Wenger
designed
Arsenal?s
training
ground to his own exacting spec and had
similar influence over the 60,000-seater
Emirates Stadium.
When he leaves for the final time, when
he drives his beloved Lexus out of the
gates at London Colney, the Frenchman
will have to let go.
Wenger added: ?I wish it all goes well.
You do not give 22 years of your life for
something, then go away and want things
to collapse, not at my age.
?Maybe, when you have a big ego at 40,
you think that the world cannot live
without you.
?At my age (68), you understand that the
world continues and you wish that it
continues better.
?At least I think that the guy can work
in a positive environment.
?Arsenal will not be short of candidates.
That shows you as well that the place is a
good place.
?It is green outside, there are nice trees
and the good grass. Fantastic. No pollution
? until the press conference starts.?
Touch�. Wenger was back to his mischievous best yesterday, a nostalgic return
to the days when Arsenal?s manager ruled
the roost in English football.
He wants to leave Arsenal a winner,
giving the fans what they want ? Champions League football ? before signing off
for good.

?It would really feel like an anti-climax

that?s why we want to give our absolute
all to have a chance of going to the final.
?You?re never sure you are doing the
right thing, but life is interesting because
you have to deal with different situations.
?I?ve worked with some people here for
22 years.
?We were together through some difficult
moments and we have a lot of emotional
contact.
?It will be a bit difficult for me and
for some people, as well, because we
worked together for such a long
time.
?But my job finishes in May and
then I will go to the World Cup
to watch England win it . . . on
penalties.?
If only.
Wenger will be free of Arsenal
by then, waiting for the club to
announce his successor.
So many names are in the frame
with Luis Enrique, Max Allegri,
Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and
Mikel Arteta jockeying for position.
He added: ?Is the job for people
who worked here before? That is
even better. There are many players
who have the qualities but some of
them are in a job.
?I won?t influence the choice but I
will stand behind the decision.
?The need is to make the right
decision, even if you have to be
bold. Personally, that?s what I wish.?
Arsenal will soon take aim, settling on their top target after completing the recruitment process.
After that, Wenger will be a
gun for hire.

?I wish to make it clear

timing
of

Wenger?s U-turn sent
Twitter into meltdown.

Ian

had
earlier
tweeted: ?Hearing Arsene
admit that he was sacked
is quite sad.
?But I would like to take
this opportunity to say to
all the people who said I
was talking s**t, to go
f**k themselves.?
Wenger is leaving the
Gunners at the end of the
season following negotiations with majority shareholder
Stan
Kroenke
about his pay-off.
He is being paid the
final year of his contract
in exchange for a dignified, respectful exit.
That has been jeopardised by Wenger, 68,
repeatedly claiming he is
not tired, does not want
to stop working and by
yesterday?s admission that
he was not ready to walk
away from Arsenal.
During the press conference ahead of tonight?s
Europa League semi-final,
first leg with Atletico
Madrid,
Wenger
also
revealed he has been hurt
by Arsenal fans demanding his removal.
He added: ?When some
people are unhappy it is
not always a majority, but
they get the voice of the
press and then it looks
like a majority.
?We live in a very
emotional society.
?Some people can make
the difference between
moments of unhappiness
and global satisfaction for
what I brought to the
club.?
Wenger also admitted
he will not have any input
into his successor.
Former Barcelona chief
Luis Enrique is one of a
number
of
managers
being
considered
by
Arsenal chief Kroenke.
Wenger added: ?I have a
high opinion of Luis
Enrique. I do not want to
influence the job for the
next manager but of
course I have a high
opinion of him.?
Patrick Vieira says he is
ready if the Gunners ask
him to be their new boss.
The ex-Arsenal skipper,
41, who manages New
York City, said: ?It is an
honour to be mentioned.
?It

WEBSITE of theWEEK
FINDING the right garage to repair your car
can be a challenge and that is where
whocanfixmycar.com comes in.
The new site aims to make shopping
around for the best mechanic and the
lowest price in your area easier, so you
know if you are getting a good deal.
Simply submit your location and the
work you require, then the site sends
quotes from local specialists straight to
your inbox. Drivers can then compare
prices, reviews and locations, and even
book online. Spokesman Louis Butcher,
left, says: ?The site forces garages to be
transparent and competitive with their
prices, which saves families both time
and money.?
Here are Louis? top three tips for families
to keep their car on the road on a budget:
Make sure your car is serviced at least
once a year or after every 10,000 miles
if you own an older vehicle.
This does cost but will save you money in
the long-term by spotting faults early. And
!
if you want to sell your car, a complete
service logbook will add value.
Regularly check and top up your tyres
with air, as low tyre pressure can
result in using more fuel than you need.
Most petrol stations will have a pressure
station and some offer the service for free.
If not it usually only costs 20p.
Declutter your car. Having excess
weight in your vehicle means you use
more fuel, so shift heavy items like prams
and store in the house or garage.

WOMEN:
Almost 75

Brits have

Six in ten would let

BEEF is moo-ving away from
its macho image for Great
British Beef Week.
A group of female farmers known as
Ladies In Beef have organised the week,
which ends on Sunday.
They want to show the health benefits of
leaner cuts of the sort that would leave The
Dandy?s cow pie-loving alpha male Desperate
Dan weeping into his whiskers.
These cuts are a great source of protein,
vitamin, iron and other minerals, and work in
everything from stir-fries to roasts.
And with fantastic supermarket deals, you
don?t need to beef about the price either.
This is my pick of the best offers for family
meals and a couple of great recipes which
would even keep Dan happy.
DRESS posh for pennies.

The Mrs
Crunch Lunch in
every week
Chilli con carne fajitas
YOU NEED: 450g beef steak; 1 tbsp
vegetable oil; 1 onion; 2 green
peppers; 2 red peppers; 1 jalapeno; 2
garlic cloves; 1 tsp cumin, ground; 1
lime; 2 tbsp fresh coriander; 1 pack
tortilla wraps
TO MAKE: Season the steak with
coarse ground black pepper and set
to one side. Slice onion and peppers
into thin slices.
Crush the garlic, then finely chop
the chilli and coriander.
Fry the onion and chilli in a little oil
for five minutes, without allowing to
brown.
Add garlic, peppers, cumin and
season to taste, then cook on a low
heat for ten minutes.
Finish by adding the juice of half a
lime. Sprinkle the steak with sea salt
and sear to medium in a hot pan until
the meat feels springy to touch.
Set aside the steak to rest for five
minutes. Cut the steak into strips,
approximately 3mm.
On warm tortillas, place equal
amounts of onion and pepper mix,
topped with steak strips.
Sprinkle with freshly chopped
coriander and a squeeze of lime juice.
Roll and cut in half to serve.
