PRES BLASTS ‘ROTTEN’ PACT
T
TRUMP TORPEDOES
IRAN NUCLEARlTehran
DEAL
vows
lUS to bring
back sanctions
By JAMES BEAL, US Editor
DONALD Trump last
night announced the
US was pulling out of
the Iran nuclear deal.
Britain and other allies
vowed to carry on with
the landmark agreement.
But the US President
reinstated tough
sanctions
that
were
lifted
three years ago.
He blasted the
deal’s “decaying
and
rotten
structure” in his
biggest
foreign
policy move yet.
Iranian President
Hassan
Rouhani warned
he would restart
enriching
uranium
“in
the
next weeks” if
the
deal
collapsed totally.
In a rare joint
statement
with
the
leaders
of
France and Germany, Theresa May said they still had
a “continuing commitment”.
The statement said: “We
call on the US to do everything possible to preserve
the gains for nuclear nonproliferation. We encourage
Iran to show restraint in
response to the decision by
Deal breaker

yesterday
the US. There
must
be
no
doubt — Iran’s nuclear programme must always remain
peaceful and civilian.”
The leaders also pledged
to tackle fears on Iran’s ballistic missile programme and
its destabilising activities in
Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
The agreement was struck
in 2015. In return for lifting
most sanctions Iran agreed
to restrictions on its nuclear
programme so that it could
not produce a bomb.
But Mr Trump cited documents presented by Israel
last week, which purported
to show Iran was still pursuing nuclear weapons.
He said: “At the heart of
the Iran deal was a giant
fiction — that a murderous
regime desired only peaceful
nuclear energy programme.
SO BITTER
OVER ALE
A BREWERY has caused outrage by claiming its beer was
full of female hormones that
leave drinkers talking “crap”
and unable to drive.
Experts and social media
users blasted 1648 Brewery Co
in East Hoathly, East Sussex.
Beer writer Melissa Cole
called it “Bernard Manningesque humour”. Jon Ford said:
“Traditional brewery with prehistoric brews and sexist
views.” 1648 did not comment.
A £100MILLION export deal with Dubai
will be unveiled by Liam Fox today.
Nearly half of the supplies and services for the development of the Dubai
World Trade Centre are likely to come
from the UK, the Trade Secretary, right, will announce.
The deal was made possible with backing from the
UK’s export credit agency,
UK Export Finance. Mr Fox
will also praise our “reputation for high-quality manufacturing
and
highly

CHILD obesity is fuelled by junk food

Food high in fat, salt or sugar is not

Heidi Alexander, 43, is
to be a deputy to London
Mayor Sadiq Khan.
The party, which failed
to make significant gains
in local elections last
week, now faces a vote in
her Lewisham East seat.
Ms Alexander quit as
Shadow Health Secretary
in 2016, slamming Mr
Corbyn as “dysfunctional”.
Tory Party Chairman
Brandon Lewis said last
night: “This highlights a
complete lack of faith in
his leadership.”

HEALTH Secretary Jeremy
Hunt
yesterday
backed plans to build
sheltered accommodation
on hospital sites.
He described the idea
by
Labour
MP
Mike
Gapes as “very wise” and
in “exactly the direction
of our thinking”.
Mr Hunt told ministers
that there were currently
1.2 million older people
struggling with “unmet

The Public Accounts

urged
the
Government to publish

JEWISH Labour activists were
“barred” from a party meeting on anti-semitism, it was
claimed last night.
A Labour working group
invited representatives from a
Jewish group to yesterday’s
session in London “to contribute to the discussion”.
But the Jewish Labour Movement said they were not allowed in. A Labour source insisted there had been a mix-up
on invitations for the meeting.

DUMP IN GARDEN
By SIMON BOYLE, Bizarre Editor
X FACTOR judge Sharon Osbourne has
revealed she was forced to do a poo in
her front garden — and blamed her dog
when her gardener found the mess.
Sharon, 65, said she had no choice as she
was locked out of the house while her rock
singer hubby Ozzy was working.
She explained: “Ozzy was in rehearsals, and it
was about two in the morning.
“I get home and I don’t have the key and
there was nobody there. I had got a really,
really bad tummy, and you need to do something. And I was really, really sick.
“Anyway I had to go in the front garden.
There were loads of trees and nobody
could see a thing. However the next day
the gardener came to me and said, ‘One
of the dogs is very sick’.
“I said, ‘Did you clear it up?’ And he
said, ‘Oh yeah’, and I said, ‘Good’.”
Sharon, who lives in Beverly Hills,
revealed the recent incident on her
US chat show The Talk after a man
was charged with lewdness for pooing
in public.

amendments tabled by Labour
MPs to the Data Protection Act
could “undermine our free Press”.
Several Tory MPs have indicated they plan to back calls for
a new statutory inquiry into the
media. A second vote on proposals to impose court costs on
publishers that refuse to join a
state-recognised Press regulator
— even if they win — is “too
close to call”, sources said.
Culture Secretary Matt Hancock is trying to win over MPs
by promising to review journalists’ exemption from the Data
Protection Bill in four years.
Mrs May’s official spokesman
insisted she believed the idea of
imposing court costs on victorious publishers went against
“natural justice”.
And he said it would not be
“proportionate” to restart the
Leveson inquiry.
Former Cabinet Minister Priti
Patel last night urged MPs of all
parties to put personal grudges
aside and defend the free Press.

SPEAKER John Bercow
is “using the ashes of

an MP said yesterday.
Tories are furious at
Mr Bercow for defying
calls to keep to a pledge
to quit next month. Officials say he is not fit to
be Speaker after two of
his
former
secretaries
accused him of bullying.
Mr Bercow invited MPs
yesterday to a memorial
event in Parliament for
Grenfell

survivors
and their families.
Tory
MP
Andrew
Bridgen called it a “cynical attempt . . . to use the
ashes of the Grenfell
tragedy to wipe away the
bullying allegations”. Mr
Bercow denies bullying.

on mortgage lending has

Lynda Blackwell was

She revealed she was
denied a mortgage after
she became self employed.
Ms Blackwell said: “The
lender I had loyally stuck
with for some 20-plus
years did not hesitate:
No. Not interested.
“Was this a taste of my
own medicine? Sort of.”
She
criticised
some
providers’ flexibility, adding: “The aim of the

was not to avoid taking

Goodwill messages from the biggest names in football flooded in

needed an emergency operation.
Ronaldo, whose raw talent was
nurtured by Sir Alex during a sixyear spell at Old Trafford, said on
Twitter: “My thoughts and prayers
are with you my dear friend. Be

He scored in Real Madrid’s 2-2
draw with Barcelona in Sunday’s
“El Clasico” clash but did not
celebrate his goal.
Ronaldo explained in a postmatch interview: “How am I supposed to celebrate when the
person who taught me to play
football is suffering in the hospi-
tal?” Sir Alex would have revelled
in the chance to see Ronaldo and
Real take on United’s fierce rivals
Liverpool in the Ukraine.
He was at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff for last year’s
final when Real beat Juventus 4-1.
Sir Alex watched Ronaldo score
twice and later handed him the

Thomas, 73, viewed pictures

items about them during 20

the town where he lives.
He could have been seeking
last-minute material for his
wedding speech — a tradition
for the father of the bride.
A source said: “Thomas
lives in a fairly remote spot
and his internet regularly goes
down. He can find himself cut
off from the outside world.
“He usually heads into town
a few times each week when
he loses connection — to
check his emails and, since
his daughter began dating
Harry, look at the latest news.
“All this research might
well help with his father of
the bride speech.
“The locals all know him
in there — they can’t believe
his connection to royalty.
“He still speaks to Meghan
on the phone and has had a
few chats with Harry. But
communication with England
can be difficult.
“The little internet cafés he
uses have become a lifeline
for him to keep up to date.”
As he sat in the Omega
cafe in the Mexican resort of
Rosarito, former Hollywood
lighting director Thomas put
on his glasses and scrolled
through a gallery of pictures
of Prince Harry, 33, and his
TV star daughter.
The Sun told on Saturday
how Thomas had been fitted
for his wedding suit at a
local tailor in Rosarito.
Royal aides confirmed that
he would meet the Queen

They lauded the Foreign Secretary for ripping into the PM’s
preferred approach of a post-Brexit customs partnership.
Mr Johnson said it was “crazy”, “totally untried” and would betray the
Brexit vote. He railed: “It’s not taking back control of your trade policy,
it’s not taking back control of your laws and it’s actually not taking back
control of your money either.”
His outburst left pro-Brexit Tories warning Mrs May would face a backlash unless she dumped the plan once and for all.
One former minister said: “If she pushes ahead with this now,
she’s going to alienate a big chunk

DO YOU WANT THE GOVERNMENT
TO CONTROL WHAT’S IN YOUR PAPER?
SAYS
BREAKING
NEWS . . . the
new law would
pose a threat to
Press freedom
Protect Press
THE two most self-serving, cynical and
downright shameful pieces of legislation
of modern times come before MPs today.
If our politicians genuinely respect democracy and the public interest they must
defeat both.
The amendment by Labour’s deputy
leader Tom Watson to the Data Protection Bill is a jaw-droppingly blatant and
probably illegal attempt to shut down
newspapers he dislikes.
It would compel every paper to submit
to controversial State-backed regulator
Impress, funded by his own millionaire
benefactor Max Mosley. Every paper,
that is, except the Labour-supporting
Guardian. Incredibly, it is exempt.
The free Press would reject such control — so new rules would force us to fund
any legal claims against us even if we
WON. Investigative journalism would be
axed overnight as too risky. Hundreds of
papers could be bankrupted and thousands of journalists dumped on the dole.
The winners would be crooked politicians, tycoons and celebrities — placed
in effect beyond scrutiny — and the Labour Party, having silenced its critics.
Ed Miliband’s “Leveson 2” is just as
bad: ANOTHER public inquiry, at vast
cost, to rake yet again over the ashes of
Press wrongdoing two decades ago.
Even The Guardian opposes that.
Maybe Miliband missed “Leveson 1”
and all the (failed) trials of journalists.
Maybe he hasn’t noticed that the Press
is fighting for life in a totally new media
landscape dominated by Facebook and
Google, that it has changed its practices
entirely and has a new regulator, IPSO,
far more potent than any before it.
The truth, though, is that neither Miliband nor Watson really care much about
improving Press practices or securing
justice for victims of intrusion. They
seek revenge for The Sun abandoning
Labour in 2009 and then exposing Miliband’s unsuitability to run Britain.
They want a tame media “free” to
churn out left-wing positions.
If these amendments go ahead, the
rest of the civilised world will regard
Britain with horror. Dictators crush free
speech . . . liberal democracies don’t.
The Government, to its credit, opposes
both proposals. Our free Press is not perfect, nor can it be. But Britain is better
for its newspapers, and these toxic plans
will damage our country immensely.
They must be voted out.
Be brave, PM
THERESA May now has a choice:
To buckle to her backbench Remainers, botch leaving the customs union,
fatally compromise Brexit, betray
17.4million voters, wreck her Government and party and reignite mass
support for Ukip or worse.
Or heed Boris Johnson and all those
who see the simple logic that “leaving”
means avoiding any restrictive customs
deal and trading with the wider world
completely free from Brussels’ diktats.
It will take guts to face down her europhile aides and rebel MPs.
But that, PM, is leadership.
MPs will today vote on a law that
will pose a real threat to the
freedom of our Press.
The bill being debated is important,
because it will give people more control
over how their personal data is stored
and used.
However,
new
amendments
put
forward by certain MPs are an attempt
to hijack the bill and to use it to force
newspapers to sign up to a statesponsored system of Press regulation,
as well as to hold another long and
costly inquiry into events of up to a
decade ago.
I chaired the Parliamentary Select
Committee that helped to uncover the
phone hacking scandal.
The behaviour of those involved was
shocking and it rightly led to criminal
prosecutions of those responsible.
It also resulted in the setting up of
Lord Leveson’s inquiry, which sat for 15
months and cost more than £5million.
Since that time, a lot has
changed.

This will give people low-cost access

fulfils almost all of the requirements set
down by Lord Leveson in his inquiry.
In all important respects it meets the

However, for reasons of principle, not

amendments have their own grudges
against the Press.
They have been unhappy about stories

I too bear the scars of having had

inaccurate or purely salacious.
That is the price of being in the
public eye, although I also know the
distress that such coverage can cause to
others, particularly the families of those
involved. However, the alternative of
state controls on the Press is far more
damaging and dangerous.
The media play a vital role in a free
society in exposing wrongdoing and
holding governments to account.
It is no accident that it is the world’s

He hopes a new Parole Board
hearing will be scheduled as

Worboys was said to be
“keeping his fingers crossed he
will get the all-clear”.
Last night one of his alleged
victims said: “I always feared he
would go before the board again
but this feels far too soon.’’
Worboys was jailed in 2009
for 19 attacks on 12 women.
He
got
an
indeterminate
sentence with a minimum term
of eight years.
He was set for release in
January but that was denied by
the High Court and the head of
the Parole Board was forced to
resign. The court also imposed
strict conditions on any new
hearing — including the involvement of a judge and consulting
with his victims.
Worboys is being held at
Wakefield Prison, West Yorkshire. The source added: “He’s
been working hard as a cleaner
and has kept out of trouble.
He’s seen as a model prisoner.”
However, Worboys is unlikely
to be allowed to return to
London, the source added.
Campaigning lawyer Rachel

the new Parole Board speak to
the victims and also consider
the pattern of offending police

“executive complaints team” is a prime
example.
When customer Sarah Leigh
was chatting to a call centre
worker and learned they were
from Bradford, she attempted to
make polite conversation about
the city.
Referring to it as “Curryland”
— which, considering it has been
named Britain’s curry capital six
times in a row seems fair
enough — she mentioned she’d
read an article on how the
waterways had turned yellow from the
spices being emptied into them.
A few days later she received a letter
from
the
aforementioned
“executive
complaints team”, asking her to “refrain
from making remarks such as these”,
and that, if she did it again, it might be
in everyone’s best interests for her to
“seek alternative banking arrangements”.
When Sarah, from Bristol, rang for
clarification, she was told: “You didn’t
mean to cause offence but you clearly
did cause it to our adviser.”
Sigh. Just because someone chooses to
interpret a remark as offensive doesn’t
mean it actually is.
And surely, if there is to be even one
small smidgen of point to the grandlytitled “executive complaints team” it is to
exercise common sense and make that
distinction, not compound the ignorance
with a pompous letter?
But then that wouldn’t generate a
situation for their “bullshit job” to sort
out, would it?
And what about the two Yorkshirebased lifeboatmen sacked for “production
of inappropriate material of a sexual
nature”, which, in English, meant they
gave each other china mugs with images
of semi-naked women on them?
What’s the betting that the “senior
female member of staff” who complained
15
is merely justifying the existence of a
“bullshit job?” Probably something with
“safe-guarding” in the title.
And so the already massive, often
state-funded,
industry
of
pointless
employment flourishes apace. In his new
study, entitled Bullshit Jobs: A Theory,
Graeber has identified the five types.
FLUNKIES — i.e. the uniformed man in
the lift who pushes the button for you.
GOONS — lobbyists, cold callers, PR
specialists etc.
DUCT-TAPERS
—
employed
to
fix
problems
that
don’t

exist in the first place, just like the
Santander lot.
BOX-TICKERS
—
employed
so
a
company
can
say
it’s
doing
something when it’s actually
not.
And finally, TASKMASTERS
—
whose
role
consists
entirely of assigning roles
to others.
In 1930, the economist
John Maynard Keynes said
that by 2000, technological
advances would mean the average
employee in the US and UK would
work only 15 hours a week.
did
“Technological
unemployment
happen,” says Graeber, a professor at the
London School of Economics . . . “It’s just
that we made up jobs for people to seem
to be working.”
Indeed, he had personal experience of
this modern phenomenon when a shelf
in his office collapsed.
A carpenter arrived and “announced
gravely that, as there were books all over
the floor, safety rules prevented him
from entering the room or taking further
action” until they were neatly stacked.
When he didn’t return, Graeber made
multiple calls to the “buildings and
grounds’ department” and spoke to
someone “whose entire job it was to
apologise for the fact that the carpenter
hadn’t come”.
He suggests other likely sectors are
“HR consultants, communications coordinators,
PR
researchers,
financial
strategists, corporate lawyers” or those
“who
spend
their
time
staffing
committees that discuss the problem of
unnecessary committees”.
A few brave souls might venture that
newspaper columnists are among one of
the above categories, but no.
We’re in the job of bullshit.
A subtle but important difference, I’m,
ahem, sure you’ll agree.
TIME TO
GROW UP
BRENDAN
IT has been rumoured for
some time that former
Strictly pro Brendan
Cole’s marriage is in
trouble because of his
partying ways.
So what does he do to
quash the idle tittletattle? Er, gets photographed in the early
hours with a woman in
vertiginous stilettos and
a micro-skirt who is
draped around his neck.
All while his exhausted
wife Zoe, above with
Brendan, was at home
dealing with their toddler
daughter and newborn
son. Oh dear. Clearly, his
brains are in his feet.
“You would think they
were together if you
based it just on their
body language,” said one
onlooker who, given that
the majority of men only
suspect something if
they actually see a sex
act taking place, must
have been a woman.
Were I Mrs Cole (God
help him,) I could
potentially be convinced
over time (a decade
should do it) that his
hand was on singer
Jenna Lee-James’
bottom merely as a
friendly, steadying
gesture, so too the
casual yet somehow
intimate placing of her
hand in his pocket.
And given that she
happily posed with him
for a Bank Holiday selfie,
wife Zoe clearly has no
issue with the photos.
But Brendan, love, in
future it’s perhaps best to
simply grow up and cha
cha change your partying
ways, or you just might
lose more than your job
at Strictly.

BALDNESS ‘CURE’
IN A SHAMPOO
SHAMPOO containing a
drug used to treat brittle
bones could help cure
baldness, scientists think.
In lab tests, they found the
therapy, developed for osteoporosis, boosted growth from
hair follicles within two days.
It works by blocking a naturallyoccurring protein which kills off
growth and plays a key role in
male-pattern baldness.

the treatment — WAY-316606 —
could one day help millions.
Lead
researcher
Nathan
Hawkshaw,
of
Manchester
University, said: “It could
make a real difference.
“In lab tests, the drug
started promoting growth in
hair follicles in just two days.
We are looking at using it as

There are no known side-effects.
The study involved hair follicles
from 40 balding men. The tissue
all started sprouting hair within
days of being treated.
Baldness hits half of men
over 50. Other than transplants,
the two treatments available —
minoxidil and finasteride —
have side-effects and do not
always work.

ELT TELLS ED TIME AT TOP WILL END
IT feels like ED SHEERAN could
release four minutes of
himself gargling and it
would still go to No1,
as his never-ending
reign at the top of
the
charts
continues.
Iggy pops
down
to pool
But
after
dominating British
music
for
the
past few years,
the pop superstar’s
long-time
SIR
mentor
ELTON JOHN has
stepped
in
to
warn him his
success
won’t
last for ever.
Comparing Ed’s
career to his own
incredible 50 years
in
the
business,
Elton, right with Ed,
said:
“You
have
a
heyday and you have a
rest, and the heyday can
never be replaced.
“After that I had the common
sense to know I’m not going to
have a No1 every time straight
away. I knew someone else would
take over. It’s cyclical.
“Ed will go through that and I’ve
talked to him about it. I’ve said,
‘There’ll come a time where this
won’t happen every time and you
have to accept that’.”
And while Elton considers Ed to
be a “dear friend”, he admitted
even he is tired of constantly
hearing his protege’s tracks.
He said: “On the [American radio]
chart, which is the middle-of-theroad chart, Ed is still No1 and
Shape Of You is still in the chart.
“It’s like, ‘Why?’ How many times
do you want to listen to these
things?”
Elton
won’t
have
contributed much to Ed’s sales
figures, as he confessed he doesn’t
know how to download music.
Instead he revealed a typically
over-the-top system for how he gets
new releases — involving an army of
staff and a fax machine.
He told GEORGE EZRA on the
young singer’s podcast: “Getting a
record was a treasure and I still
feel that way about getting a CD.
“You have to get the office to
burn them.
“I don’t download anything. I’ve
never downloaded anything and I
wouldn’t know how to.
“I plan every week. At 9.45am I’ll
get a fax coming through from the
office with the new releases.
“I’ll highlight them, I’ll phone the
office straight away and they’ll get
delivered the same day.”
Fans of Ed will be pleased to
learn that more tickets are to be
released
for
his
sold-out
UK
summer tour. Organisers announced
that some seats, deliberately held
back to thwart touts, will be
released On Friday at 10am.
Despite his warning, no doubt
Elton will be there to cheer Ed on
— as long as it’s possible to get his
tickets by fax. Or carrier pigeon.

BY SUN SAVERS
EDITOR SOPHIA
I HEAR a lot of tips and tricks
about how to save the pennies – including from the Sun
Savers community.
I challenged myself to save on my
weekly food shop using your suggestions.
And guess what? I saved £17 in a
week. Here’s how.
1. Cashback. I had never used
cashback apps before but TopCashback, Quidco and CheckoutSmart are
all popular. In my local Asda, I spotted some Rana fresh pasta on a 100
per cent cashback offer in-store, so I
bought two packets and uploaded my
receipt online.
I was refunded the full £5 for two
packets, in just a couple of days. It
was easy.
I will check out some of the cashback apps next.
SAVED: £5
2. Asda Price Guarantee. If your
Asda shop isn’t ten per cent cheaper
than the same shop at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons or Waitrose, Asda
will give you a voucher for the difference. Just check your receipt online
and it will say if you have a voucher
or not. If so, print out the voucher. I
saved £9 in a week thanks to a
bunch of different receipts.
It’s easy but frustrating you have to
print out the vouchers. Surely you
could show it on your phone?
SAVED: £9
3. Down-branding. I have always
been a sucker for brands but I
decided that for everything branded I
normally buy, I would down-brand —
going down to the basics where available. I started with cleaning products,
buying own-brand shower cleaner,
toilet bleach, washing-up liquid and
antibacterial spray. The lot cost me
£2.28, rather than £5.03 for branded
versions. And vitally, the products
worked just as well. I will keep my
eyes peeled for more savings.
SAVED: £2.75
4. Shop seasonally. I normally

Acrobatics . . . Kim
Spider’s
jump on
demand
By CHLOE KERR
A SPIDER has been
trained
to
jump
on
demand
by
scientists
studying the secrets of its
acrobatic ability.
They want to see if the
2cm arachnid’s leaping
power could be used to
design agile mini-robots.
The regal jumping spider can vault six times
its body length from a
standing start.
The team bought a
number of females from
a pet shop and managed
to train one, which they
called Kim, to leap different heights and distances on a lab platform.
The jumps were filmed
and a virtual model of
her body created.
Experts hope this will
show them how she uses
the spring-like mechanism in her legs.

‘HIT-LIST’ RUSSIAN
EXILE SURRENDERS
Tycoon in fear for
By NICK PARKER
A RUSSIAN who claims he is on Vladimir
Putin’s “death list” surrendered to Moscow
yesterday, fearing he was about to be killed.
Businessman Sergey Kapchuk, 45, drafted in
bodyguards after the murder of Putin enemy Nikolai Glushkov and the Salisbury poisoning of double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
He said he feared he would be next to die amid
claims he had moved from No 12 to No 11 on a hit-list of
runaway Russians. Last
night he was reported to
have
“surrendered
to
Russia” in the Croatian
capital Zagreb.
He had been wanted by
Russian authorities for
more than a decade after
fleeing to London before
being
jailed
in
his
absence on fraud charges.
But he was said to
have returned last night
after being promised he
would be spared the Russian president’s wrath.
Kapchuk was said to
be one of several “Londongrad exiles” tempted
by an offer to drop charges if they came home.
The tycoon appeared
on TV in March, flanked
by minders. He told a
pro-Kremlin
channel:
“I’m not sure about my
safety in London.”
THE cop probe into
the Skripal poisoning
is one of Britain’s biggest
yet, ministers heard yesterday. More than 400
officers are hunting those
behind the March attack.

CALL A LOCKSQUIFFY
A locked-out woman
sparked a police alert by
breaking into her house
at 3am after an all-day
booze binge in Bury.
TV Editor
AS greasy mechanic Kevin
Webster, he has had an
affair with his best mate’s
girlfriend, been kicked out
by his wife and found a
dead body in his garage.
But that is nothing compared
to the real life of Coronation
Street actor Michael Le Vell.
The cobbles veteran of 35 years has
come through a child sex abuse
scandal, battled alcoholism and been
declared bankrupt after running up
hefty legal bills.
But he has still managed to cling
on to his job . . . for now.
And with a new boss taking the
helm in June, the future of the star,
seen
yesterday
contemplating
his
troubles with a fag and a pint, right,
has never been in more doubt.
Last week he was arrested on
suspicion of assault after the police
were called to the home he shares
with fiancée Louise Gibbons in
Timperley, south Manchester.
Michael, 53, then failed to turn up
for work, increasing his “unrivalled
unpopularity” with production crew,
who can not wait for bosses to get
shot of him and rip up his £250,000a-year contract.
A source close to the show said:
“Everybody on set has been talking
about Michael’s future, and it’s
very clear some think he’s on
thin ice.
“He has been in the bad books
previously, but because he’s
been around for so long, it’s
often thought he is given more
leeway than younger actors
would be.
“But when he didn’t show up
to work last week, a lot of people
were furious. Some scenes had to
be changed at huge expense in
terms of both time and money.
“Michael did ring bosses to make
his excuses, but by that point stuff
had already been sorted.”
‘He had better get
his act together fast’
Another source added: “Michael has
been described as rude by crew and
there’s a feeling he thinks he owns
the place and is untouchable after so
many years on the show.”
The timing of his arrest, for which
he will face no further action, could
not have been worse.
Show chief Kate Oates will be
replaced next month by Emmerdale
boss Iain MacLeod, a man feared in
soapland for his unforgiving attitude
to timewasters.
Telly veteran Iain is a firm believer
that “no star is bigger than the soap”
and is not afraid to ditch actors or
kill off their characters — so there is
no chance of return.
“Iain is known for not taking any
s**t,” according to one soap expert.
“Kate, who also used to work on
Emmerdale, tried to be mates with
everyone. She’s even on holiday with
some of the Emmerdale cast at the
moment
“But Iain keeps a line between him
and the cast.
“Michael had better get his act
together fast or he won’t last
five minutes under the new
regime.”
There has been a wall of
silence
surrounding
the
incident which led to his arrest
on Thursday of last week.
The actor, whose real name
is Michael Robert Turner,
was taken to hospital
after falling down the
stairs before spending
the
night
at
a
Manchester
police
station.
He was treated
after a 999 call
from the fourbed

shares

Louise, 42.

spokesman said:
“Officers
attended
and
arrested a 53-
Thee
year-old man. He was taken to
hospital then taken into police
custody for questioning.
“The man has since been
released
with
no
further
action.”
Michael’s representative said
they
would
not
be
commenting due to it
being
a
“private
matter”.
For his part,
the actor told
bosses it was a
“silly row that
got

e hell of Le Vell
played Todd Grimshaw, got negative
headlines last year.
The 35-year-old pleaded guilty to
two counts of sexual assault in
November — but Corrie bosses had
already terminated his contract, acting
before he was even charged.
Now they fear they will be accused
of double standards.
An ITV insider said: “The situation
is a tricky one for show chiefs.
“They acted very swiftly to give
Bruno the boot after allegations about
his behaviour
“But with Michael they seem to be
standing by him for now.
“Michael was back on set this week
despite all of the mystery surrounding
the recent event. He was relieved that
cops told him quickly there would be
no further action, as if he’d been
charged he would have to step away
from the soap, in the short-term at
the very least.”
It has been a tricky few years for
Michael.
He was cleared of 12 child sex
offences, including rape and indecent
assault, by a jury at Manchester
Crown Court in 2013.
Despite successfully beating the
allegations, pals say the chapter has
had
a
profound
effect
on
the
Manchester-born actor.
At

stage,
self-confessed

knocked back the night before, he
was never late on set the next day
and hardly ever fluffed his lines.
But Michael became suspicious that
loyalty among his closest circle of
mates was fading after a string of
headlines made him question who he
could rely on. He switched pubs and
now tries to stick with those he can
count on come rain or shine.
The actor split with his wife of 25
years, Janette Beverley, 51, the mum of
his two children, seven years ago.
He recently admitted to having a
problem with both drink and drugs.
He revealed he took cocaine both
before and after his sex abuse trial,
which led to a break from the soap,
and was said to be drinking ten pints
a day in his local.
This year, it was revealed he had
been
declared
bankrupt
after
reportedly facing an outstanding tax
bill. His finances had slipped after
paying £200,000 in legal fees to clear
his name against the child sex abuse
allegations.
Ministry of Justice rules prevent
people who can afford their own
defence from receiving tax-funded
paybacks after the case, whether they
are cleared or not.
Michael, one of Corrie’s top earners,
has always preferred being with his
friends than in front of the cameras
in Weatherfield, often simply referring
to his Corrie role as “the job”.
But now he fears what may happen
if ITV bosses run out of patience with
him for bringing the show into the
headlines for all the wrong reasons.
A former drinking buddy near his
old home in Hale, Cheshire, said: “He
knows nothing else. He’s been doing
this job since he was a teenager.
“Michael loves a beer and a laugh —
it’s a major part of his life.
“But what’s happened to him in
recent years has been a real wake-up
call to him.
“He
realises
that
if
anything
happens to his job on Corrie, he’s
fairly clueless as to what he would do.
“For quite a while he’s made it clear
how he wants to temper his life and
root out those who are not supportive
and loyal to him.
“He is genuinely worried about
bosses losing patience — because he
doesn’t have a Plan B.”

The programme sees Robert travel to

“It’s impossible to fathom

camp family
THE BBC gave The Last Post a
stellar cast and a plum slot on
Sunday nights but they’ve
already binned it after just
one series.
The six-parter was set in the
Sixties and starred Call The
Midwife’s JESSICA RAINE and
JESSIE BUCKLEY.
It is a surprising move as
the six-parter earned
respectable viewing figures of
around 6.8million when it
aired last autumn.
But the Beeb yesterday
confirmed they were pulling
the plug on Bafta-winning
writer PETER MOFFAT’s
series, saying: “The Last Post
was a fantastic series but we
can confirm it won’t be
returning. We are looking to
bring new ideas to BBC1.”
The Last Post focused on
the sexual exploits of
servicemen and their wives in
the UK-run outpost of Aden,
in what’s now Yemen.
Jessica played sex-starved
siren Alison Laithwaite who
was seen romping with her
officer husband’s superior.
But even with all that steam,
clearly not everyone at the
BBC warmed to it.
bi
taking calls with Sun Agony Aunt
DEIDRE SANDERS, Kate said: “At
the beginning I could never imagine
that the kids would talk about it.
“Now they say on a daily basis,
‘When are you giving us a brother or
sister?’ When you getting married?
We want to be the bridesmaids’. It’s
really lovely how far we’ve come.
“And Rio’s thinking, ‘Oh God, I’ve
got three kids and Kate asking when
are we going to do it.”
Get to the jewellers, Rio – you’re
already punching above your weight.

Do I ditch first
love for cheat?
Dear Deidre
I WAS happy getting back
with my first love and
having the most caring
sex ever – until my ex told
me he had cheated on me
through
most
of
our
relationship.
Now I’m having sex with both of
them and don’t know what I feel.
I’m 20 and my ex is 22. We
were together for two years. I was
very much in love with him.
When we first began seeing each
other, my parents were divorcing
and he helped me through it all.
He taught me loads and I don’t
know what I would have done
without him.
But some time last year things
seemed to change. I thought we
were happy together, but he
started being snappy and cancelling dates. I didn’t know why.
Two months ago we ended up
going our separate ways. I couldn’t
believe it was happening.
A few days later I was at home
drinking alone. I decided to text
an old boyfriend — my first love —
who is 21. He sounded surprised to

hear from me but we decided to
meet up. I poured my heart out to
him. I guess I went to him for
comfort, he was very consoling
and sympathetic.
I felt so alone and down. Having
someone there was great. We
ended up sleeping together that
night and have been seeing each
other ever since.
He is lovely to me and a much
more thoughtful lover than my
ex-boyfriend.
I thought I was over my ex until
out of the blue he told me he had
been thinking and wanted to con-
fess that he had been cheating on
me for more than a year during
our relationship.
That really hurt and raked up
all my feelings again.
I told him how upset that made
me feel and he asked to come
round to say sorry in person. I
told him I was seeing someone
else but it ended up with us
having sex.
He isn’t caring like my new
boyfriend but I can’t help finding
him more sexy.
He now says he wants me back
and I’m so tempted. But my first
love has said he is falling back in
love with me. I don’t want to hurt
either of them but I’m so torn.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You can’t have them
both, that’s for sure. I can understand
the temptation to return to your ex but I
doubt it’s a good plan.
It sounds to me as though he knew
just how to hurt you when he felt you
moving on emotionally. I doubt you
can trust him long-term. I’m sending
you my e-leaflet Moving On to help.
You may be just using your first love
as a security blanket. Ask him to give
you space to think before committing.
When you’re torn between two men
like this it’s often because neither is
really right for you.

Dear Deidre
A FEMALE colleague sat very
close to me and put her leg
tight against mine. Our faces
were so close we could have
kissed. She’s always touching
my hand and standing close.
We have been texting a lot
and have flirted a bit. She
thinks it is just banter but it
really isn’t.

MY girlfriend’s family look
down on me because I rent

They say I’m common and
ignore me in the street.
I’m 53 and my girlfriend is

another more than 30 years
ago but neither of us
declared our feelings then.
The two of us met up again
by chance and we’ve now
been together for two years.
We love one another deeply.
We had planned to get
engaged but her family put a
stop to it. Her mum especially
treats her like a child and
always put her down.

saying that all I want to do is
make her daughter happy.
The stress has put a strain on
our relationship. I worry that
they’ll split us up.

girlfriend is an adult and of
course old enough to enjoy
a relationship with anyone
she chooses but she has to
rustle up the confidence to
stand up to her family.
It’ll be hard, but with your
support she can do it. She
needs to be mature, calm
and assertive and tell her
family that she doesn’t want
to fall out but she is free to
follow her heart. My eleaflet Standing Up For
Yourself will help.
PARTNER
REFUSES
TO SHARE
OUR BILLS
Dear Deidre
MY partner has never offered
to pay rent or settle bills even
though he inherited a large
sum when his father died.
I am 52 and my partner is
66. We have been together
for 12 years. He is a loving
and caring man, but he has
always refused to take any
financial responsibility.
He has left me struggling
throughout our relationship
without ever contributing
even the smallest amount.
His excuse has always
been that he is a pensioner
and can’t afford it. I know this
isn’t true but he says I’m
money-minded.
I’ve finally had enough and
I’m seriously thinking of
asking him to move out. I love
him but I can no longer live
with him while he continues
to think finances should be
kept separate like this – as in,
I foot all the bills.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Your
partner enjoys the benefits
of being in a couple while
remaining mentally single
on money issues, and
sounds to be using it as a
way to control you.

cent share would have been

BEAT HEAT
HEALTH
HAZARDS
WARMER weather is here at
last – but, sadly, it can bring
health hazards. LAURA STOTT
spells out how to avoid
common heat perils.
SUNBURN: Protecting skin
from sunburn and skin-cancerinducing UV rays is crucial.
Always slather protection on to
exposed face and body areas
before going out on warm days.
Apply SPF15 and top up
regularly. Swerve the sun from
noon to 3pm when UV rays are
most powerful. And remember
you can still burn when it’s
cloudy – so don’t skip SPF on
overcast days.
DEHYDRATION: Drink plenty of
fluids, including tea, water and
soft drinks and watch out for
tell-tale warning signs such as
dark or strong smelling urine,
excessive thirst, feeling faint or
a dry mouth. Be especially
vigilant if exercising or drinking
alcohol in the heat. Rehydration
sachets, from any pharmacy,
will quickly replace essential
sugar, salts and minerals
needed if excess fluids are lost.
INSECT BITES: When the sun
arrives – so do the bugs. Saliva
from insect bites and venom
from stings leave skin red,
swollen and itchy. But don’t
scratch. An over-the-counter
antihistamine tablet or cream
should reduce swelling and
itching. Apple cider vinegar is a
natural insect repellent.
Swallow a spoonful daily – or
add to food – to reduce bites.
PRICKLY HEAT: This red,
bumpy hive-like rash is caused
by blocked sweat glands and
exposure to sunlight. It often
causes a stinging or prickling
feeling. Seek shade or go inside
– prickly heat usually reduces
as skin cools. Avoid man-made
fibres which can increase
sweating. Choose natural fibres
such as cotton.
HEAT EXHAUSTION: This
happens when a decrease in
blood pressure and a loss of
body fluid and salts causes
nausea, exhaustion and lightheadedness. Heavy sweating,
headaches, cramps and
dizziness are other common
symptoms. Resting in a cool
place and drinking cold water
usually eliminates issues within
30 minutes. Heat stroke is a
more serious condition where
the body overheats so much it
is unable to cool. Seek medical
help if you suspect this.
INSOMNIA: Rising night-time
temperatures cause
perspiration and stops us
drifting off. To cool bedrooms,
keep curtains shut in the
daytime and open windows. An
electric fan will circulate air to
help sweat evaporate overnight.
Choose cotton sheets, which
will absorb sweat to help
prevent hot skin becoming
clammy.

DEVASTATING ILLNESS
By LYNSEY HOPE
WHEN Hannah Fielding
saw her husband Philip on
life support after his organs
had failed one by one, she
gave him permission to die.
Just two
sitting on
their two
tucked up
COMA . . . Hannah
talked to Philip as his
organs failed
days earlier, they had been
the sofa watching TV while
boys, five and three, were
in bed.
Philip had been off work with what they
both thought was a bad case of “man flu”.
But it became pneumonia and Philip developed sepsis, a deadly infection which claims
44,000 UK lives a year.
Despite Hannah saying her goodbyes in
hospital, Philip miraculously survived. But
both his legs had to be amputated below the
knee. Now Hannah wants to raise awareness
of the horrific condition.
She says: “We all fear cancer and heart
attacks but so few know about sepsis. It
causes more deaths in the UK than bowel,
breast and prostate cancer combined.
“If we had spotted the symptoms earlier,
our lives might have been very different now.”
Philip, 36, started feeling unwell while at
work in March 2016. He came home and went
to bed.
Hannah, 38, says: “It was a Tuesday evening
and Philip said he’d fallen asleep in a meeting. He had a high temperature and was
shivering. There was little improvement over
the next few days.
“On the Saturday, I went out with the boys.
When I came home he suggested watching
telly. He looked pale but I thought he must
be feeling a little better as he was up and
about. When I woke the next morning he’d
sent a text saying he had gone to see an outof-hours GP. I called and he said the doctor
sent him to A&E.”
Hannah arranged for her father to come to
the family’s home in Stotfold, Beds, to look
after sons Oscar, now seven, and Toby, five.
Then she headed to Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Herts.
She says: “By the time I arrived he was
covered in a purple, grey rash. Within hours
he would be in a coma. All of his organs
were failing rapidly.
“He had full heart, liver, lung and kidney
failure over the next couple of days.
‘Litres of black, infected fluid
poured out of his lungs’
“By the Tuesday, the Philip I loved had all
but gone. He had turned purple and the gangrene was setting in. There was no sign of
life. The nurse told me to speak to him, as I
had to accept that we were near the end of
life. I told him I could see his body was in a
lot of pain. I gave him permission if he
needed to go, not to hang on. I didn’t want
him to suffer any more.
“But I said, ‘If you think you’ve got anything left to give, then please keep fighting’. I
told the children Daddy was sleeping. But
then my eldest said, ‘He will wake up
though, won’t he?’
“My mum was with me and we were
taken by his medical team into a private room. They said there were one or
two things they would try but they
didn’t hold out much hope. They
thought a chest drain would make him
haemorrhage and die. But, as we had
nothing to lose, they went ahead.”
Incredibly, Philip showed small signs
of improvement.
Hannah
says:
“Litres
of
black,
infected fluid poured out of his lungs.
The doctor came to see me, his eyes
watering. I said: ‘Has he gone?’. But he
said: ‘I’m crying as I don’t want to give
you false hope. But he has made the
night and is improving.’
“Philip was in a coma for two weeks.
The doctor said it was likely he would
at least lose some toes and fingers and
a chance he would be brain damaged. We
wouldn’t know until he woke up.”
Philip was not brain damaged but had to
have his legs amputated below the knee and
the tips of his thumbs. He was in hospital for
six months.
Hannah says: “Philip is quite an able disabled person. He can use prosthetic legs but
after a day wearing them, he is tired and in
pain. At home he is dependent on a wheelchair. Despite everything, we count ourselves
lucky. Philip will get to see the boys grow up.
“Philip is incredibly determined. He is on
the Team GB wheelchair tennis development
squad and it’s amazing he can still play.”
Philip says: “Sepsis can happen to anyone.
One minute I was leading a healthy, active
life. Barely a week later, I was struggling to
survive. I owe my life to the incredible hospital team that cared for me. If you ever feel
so ill you think you might die, ask, ‘Could it
be sepsis?’”
We talk to a mum who feared she would
lose her baby girl to the infection — and The
Sun’s Lynsey shares her own frightening story.
Sepsis kills

yet few know

‘Put in induced coma’
LOUISE DAVIES, 35, a primary
school learning mentor, lives in
Sutton Coldfield, West Mids, with
teacher husband Brian, 36, and
daughters Isla, nine, and Aoife,
four. She says:
Aoife was nine weeks when she
picked up a cold at the weekend.
She wasn’t feeding or sleeping and
had a high temperature.
I went to my GP on the Monday
and was sent to A&E. Aoife was
gasping for air. She was put in an
induced coma and given a blood
transfusion. I was lucky Dr Ron Daniels, who set up the UK
Sepsis Trust, was working and spotted the signs. We were
told to prepare for the worst but on the Friday, Aoife came off
life support. She had human metapneumovirus, which
caused sepsis. Not all families get this happy ending.

The facts
DR RON DANIELS, of the UK
Sepsis Trust, says: “Sepsis is
the way the body responds to
an infection.
“It often develops after a
chest infection or a urinary
tract infection but it can also
develop after a cut, a bite or
sting. If not treated quickly, it
can lead to organ failure and
ultimately death.
“We all know what having
an infection feels like. You
might feel a bit under the
weather. But those with
sepsis often feel like they are
at death’s door.
“If you feel something isn’t
right, call NHS 111 or speak to
your GP and ask, ‘Could it be
sepsis?’ It’s crushingly
common. There are around
250,000 cases a year in the
UK. It’s more common than
heart attacks.
“The numbers recorded by
the NHS are going up by ten
per cent a year.
“Sepsis claims 44,000 lives
a year but 40 per cent of
survivors are left with longterm health issues.
“That’s 50,000 to 60,000
people every year.”

How to avoid
‘I was in labour when my temperature rocketed’
SUN journalist Lynsey Hope,
36, was diagnosed with
maternal sepsis during
labour with her second child.
The mum, who lives in West
Malling, Kent, with policeman
husband Nick, 38, and
children Jacob, three, and
Olive, one, says:
I was many hours into
labour with Olive and the
pain was really starting to set
in. But suddenly I started
shaking and it was clear from
the panic around me
something was wrong.
The midwife was running
around looking for a doctor.
My temperature skyrocketed. I
6
felt freezing cold and I
remember asking my husband
for blankets.
I was given paracetamol to
bring down my temperature
and I remember I kept hearing
the word “infection”.
Luckily, the midwife picked
up on it early. I was quickly
examined by a doctor and
pumped full of intravenous
antibiotics.
I did hear them saying the
word “sepsis”. At the time, it
was the least of my worries. I
still had to give birth to a baby.
It was only afterwards the
reality of the situation sank in. I
remained in hospital for three
days. I was also given probiotic
drinks to try to restore the
balance of healthy bacteria in
my body.
I had to return to my GP’s
surgery several times after I
was discharged to give regular
blood and urine samples.
I was warned about the signs
of infection and told to head
straight back to the hospital if I
had any concerns.
Sepsis is not something
people know much about. It’s
not something I realised you
could pick up during labour.
Pregnant women are also at
an increased risk, which I
never knew.

As the sun begins the second half of its journey through your
sign, the best version of you is drawn to the surface. At work,
your talent will shine through but it’s the way you give others
true confidence that matters even more. In matters of love,
passion gets stronger as trust is rebuilt.
The challenge from Venus, now in your personality chart, is to
believe in love and not question your partner’s feelings. If you
are free to meet someone new, listen out for a voice you
recognise but a face you don’t. A newcomer at work will be
very friendly but very competitive too.
Jupiter and the sun face each other across the zodiac and set
up a choice – stay with a project that links friends, music and
charity, or go solo to find a quicker route to success. As for
romance, new love has a mysterious past. Settled? You will
soon discover just how romantic you can be as a couple.
Your ruling light, the sun, climbs high and brings a sudden
upswing in energy and enthusiasm. This helps you get the
green light for home plans. As for romance, don’t hide what is
in your heart. Put feelings into words to reassure a partner or
do some full-on flirting with a new face where friends meet up.
Generous Jupiter helps you make the family feel like a team
again. One person’s careless words can be forgotten but
resist organising every detail of your partner’s life. Single?
You sense you are ready for deep and abiding love. You could
find it when a wise friend introduces you to Taurus “J”.
It seems like a small change at work but it marks the start of
growing success that could alter so much about your life in all
the right ways. If you are looking for love, you’ll find it staring
right back when you open the door of a food store. Already
part of a couple? Don’t take love for granted. Put it into words.
Your mind is switched on and your emotions are calm, so you
make smart choices in your love life. At work, you can say yes
to an opportunity very different to the one you expected. At
home, you achieve most when you show quiet confidence in
your own plans rather than trying to keep everyone happy.
The moon is in the most healing part of your chart, so this is
the perfect moment to get in touch with people you miss. This
can lead to restarting a romance or remaking a work team. But
in all cases, mind and heart need to agree. A massive money
prize means more when it is shared.
The clash between the sun and Jupiter gives you a new kind of
determination to use your own talent. Keep working at it until
doors open. This talent has two meanings, one linked to the
showbiz world, the other to profitable business deals. Love
that was going nowhere starts to talk about weddings.
You have a clear view of love and see that a relationship run to
suit only one partner needs to change. The moon is in place to
help you rebuild this love and you will both enjoy it more. If
you are free to find a new partner, a lawyer could be The One.
When choosing between two houses, listen to instinct.
As the moon moves into your sign, many things will change in
your favour. Deals are agreed and the love in both hearts
shows equal strength. At work, you have that certain something that means a dream job can be yours. Set aside time for
a relative who has such important decisions to make.

PROGRESS
ON TAKEDA
TAKEAWAY
THE board of SHIRE, a
rare disease specialist
listed on the FTSE100, has
backed a £46billion takeover by Japan’s TAKEDA.
It ends weeks of wrangling, with a string of previous offers from the
Japanese pharma giant
rejected by the Irish firm.
The new deal is expected
to bring cost savings of at
least £1billion.
This may include a six to
seven per cent reduction
in the firms’ combined
workforce of 52,000.
The merged group, called
Takeda, would be listed in
Tokyo and New York, but
not London.
The takeover now needs
the approval of 70 per
cent of Takeda shareholders. If approved, it is set
for the first half of 2019.
Shire chairman Susan
Kilsby said: “We firmly
believe this combination
recognises the strong
growth potential of our
leading products and innovative pipeline — and is in
the best interests of our
shareholders, patients and
the communities we serve.”
Osaka-based Takeda,
founded in 1781, said the
deal would strengthen its
core therapeutic areas,
“bringing together complementary positions”.

VODAFONE
CABLE TIE
VODAFONE is reportedly
close to buying large parts
of cable group LIBERTY
GLOBAL in a deal worth
around £16billion.
The deal will see John
Malone, the US billionaire
who controls Liberty Global
through voting rights, part
ways with the company’s
German and eastern
European assets.
It will allow Vodafone to
better compete against
DEUTSCHE TELEKOM, the
region’s largest telecoms
company, by expanding its
footprint across the
continent.
The tie-up could be
announced as early as
today. Both companies
have declined to comment.

PROBE ON
SSE DEAL
THE merger of energy
firms NPOWER and SSE
will be subject to a fullscale investigation by the
competition watchdog.
The Competition and
Markets Authority will
probe fears that the deal
— which will see the “big
six” suppliers shrink to
five — will lead to higher
household bills.
Its initial probe found
the tie-up could reduce
competition, and the CMA
said the firms had failed
to address its concerns.
The more detailed
investigation will mean a
decision on the merger, by
an independent panel, will
now not be made until
October 22.

VIRGIN
Money’s
shares
surged yesterday on the
back of a rival’s £1.6billion
takeover offer.
CYBG, owner of the Clydesdale
Bank, Yorkshire Bank and B
brands, made the preliminary
all-share offer late on Monday.
IN THEIR PRIME
THE Canadian family behind SELFRIDGES and PRIMARK has
topped this year’s Sunday Times Fashion Rich List.
The Westons are now worth an estimated £10.5billion.
Their UK fortune rose by £192million to nearly £4.5billion.
Selfridges sits at the upper end of the retail sector with
Primark, pictured, doing well at the budget end.
The Barclay brothers, owners of VERY and LITTLEWOODS,
were second with Gucci owner KERING third.
SORRELL RETURN
SIR Martin Sorrell has
vowed to “start again”,
just
weeks
after
his
departure from advertising giant WPP following
a misconduct allegation.
Speaking in New York,
Sir Martin said he had
been
“extracted”
from
WPP. He added: “I’m not
going into voluntary or
involuntary
retirement.”
He said leaving WPP had
given
him
a
better
perspective
on
which
parts of the industry were
growing
and
adapting,
and which were held
back by the “warts and
problems
that
legacy
companies have”.
He said many clients
had asked him: “What is
the new agency model?”
It said the tie-up would create the
“UK’s
leading
challenger
bank
offering both personal and small
business
customers
a
genuine alternative to the
large incumbent banks”.
News of the offer sent
Virgin
Money
shares
soaring nearly 10 per
cent,
while
CYBG
shares rose by just over
1 per cent.
However, it emerged
yesterday that the Financial Conduct
Authority was looking into last
week’s 15 per cent jump in the value
of Virgin Money’s shares which came
before the approach was announced.
The
deal
would
bolster
the
challenger banks who are out to
disrupt the UK’s established players.
The joint company would have
6million customers and help CYBG
strengthen its position in the mortgage market and expand into credit

WEAVES
MAGIC
By STEVE JONES
AIDAN O’BRIEN has
cast a spell over the
Cheshire Oaks with
five of the last ten
winners.
And his Magic Wand
looks the pick of his
three runners today — at
least she is the one with
the Ryan Moore seal of
approval.
Magic Wand is yet to
win in three starts but
her trainer said: “She is
a lovely filly and a halfsister to Chicquita.
“She has had one run
on bad ground this year
and got a little bit tired.
“Rather than go back
for a maiden now we’ll
let them step into those
races now as if they won
their maiden.”
O’Brien’s
son
Donnacha, fresh from
2,000 Guineas success
on Saxon Warrior, rides
Forever Together.
Seamie Heffernan is
aboard Dramatically,
who finished down the
field in the Nell Gwyn.
O’Brien
added:
“Forever Together hasn’t run this year and is
still a maiden, but she is
ready to go.
“We were waiting on
the ground but you
can’t wait too long.
“It will be good experience for them and
we’ll see how they go.
“We will all learn
together.”
Gavin Cromwell is
another Irish-based
trainer bidding for
Cheshire Oaks glory
with Princess Yaiza.
She is twice a winner
on the all-weather at
Dundalk and will have
the benefit of expert
Chester jockey Franny
Norton on board.
Cromwell said: “We’re
very happy with her
going there.
“We were a bit disappointed with the draw
in stall ten but if anyone
can steer her around
there we have the right
man on board.
“I’ve never been
to the races at
Chester so I’m
looking forward to it.”

Rascal looks naughty but nice
TEMPLEGATE’S TELLY TIPS
CHESTER’S tight turns can
By STEVE JONES
send you dizzy so bank on a
Rascal.
up from 1m2f is right up her street.
RAS’LL DAZZLE
. . . Young Rascal
scooted home at
Newbury
YOUNG RASCAL bolted up at
Newbury and looks the one to be
on in the Chester Vase. He can
see off Aidan O’Brien’s invaders.
GET your teeth into NO
LIPPY. She won on debut
on testing ground at Doncaster
and this well-bred filly will
improve for that run and she
should like the better ground.
Tom Dascombe bids to win this
for the third time since 2010.
Light My Fire might be the best
of his four runners.
THE Cheshire Oaks
was the launch pad
for Enable’s rise to greatness
so let’s back John Gosden
and Frankie Dettori to strike
again with AWARD WINNING.
She improved for her debut
when running away with a
Wetherby novice contest. The step

Aidan O’Brien has won this five times
in ten years from just nine runners.
Magic Wand could take a big jump
forward on decent ground.
FORMIDABLE KITT won on her
debut before coming up short
in Group races. Her fourth behind
Havana Grey was a fair effort and she
has been let in lightly.
Spoof finished close up when fifth
in the Group 2 Cornwallis. His handicap rating has suffered as a result.
IT might be foolish to take on
O’Brien given he has won this
eight times in the last 11 years but I’ve
been impressed with YOUNG RASCAL.
He chased home smart My Lord And
Master on debut and destroyed a big
field over a mile at Newbury — a trip
clearly too short for him.
Ispolini had Hunting Horn behind
when touched off at Sandown’s but he
may not improve much on that.

E-W THIEF
HAVE an each-way double at Chester. Aidan
O’Brien has farmed the
Cheshire Oaks in recent
years but another Irish
trainer Gavin Cromwell
can spoil the party with
PRINCESS YAIZA (2.25)
under Chester specialist
Franny Norton. Tom
Dascombe loves having a
winner here and CHEERFILLY (5.05) can go well
from a good draw.

Giro d’Italia hopes
took a hit in Sicily as

moved third overall.
Team Sky’s Froome
finished 21sec behind

yesterday’s stage four.
He trails Pink Jersey
holder Rohan Dennis by
55sec. Mitchelton-Scott
ace Yates is 17sec back.
CHAMP MARK’S ALL-NIGHTER
Tom rest
for Tokyo
MARK WILLIAMS celebrated
his third snooker world title
with a SEVEN-HOUR bender
— before waking up in bed
with his best mate!
TOM DALEY is taking
a break from diving
until 2019.
The Welshman made the most
of his 18-16 triumph over John
Higgins at the Crucible on Bank
Holiday Monday.
Williams finished his media
and sponsors requirements at
11pm, then drank with his family
and friends at Sheffield’s Mercure
Hotel until 6am on Tuesday.
About 300 fans rocked up at
the free bar to toast Williams,
who became the oldest man in
40 years to win the world title.
Next day he posted a photo of
him in bed with fellow pro Lee
Walker and tweeted: “I never
celebrated any of my wins EVER
but this b*****d I am. Unreal to
see all my mates enjoying the
occasion and having a laugh.”
Once sunrise arrived, he told his
The triple world champ
has won Commonwealth
gold in the synchro 10m
platform and five diving
world series medals so
far this year.
But he will now miss
next month’s World Cup
in China and not return
to full training until the
autumn — when he is set
to become a dad.
Daley, 23, hopes the
break will allow him to
be fully fit for the 2020
Olympics in Tokyo.
He said: “I’ll be using
the rest of the year to
spend
time
with
my
husband and new baby
and work on projects
close to my heart.
“I am sure this will
give me the time I need
to be in a position to
compete at my best going
into the next Olympics.”
By HECTOR NUNNS
74,000-plus Twitter followers: “5.44
and still going strong. Told you I
was going to enjoy this one. OMG,
I feel like s**t.”
Williams, world champion in
2000 and 2003, had turned up
NAKED for his post-final press
conference, just as he had vowed
to do earlier in the tournament.
It was an incredible turnaround
after he watched last year’s final
drinking beers in a caravan.
Williams, 43, said: “Maybe the difference is bottle, showing some big
balls. Look at that pink I missed for
the title in the 33rd frame.
“Who else could have come
straight back and made a break
like that to win it in the next
frame?
Maybe
John
Higgins
himself would be the only one.
“I’m not sure if even Ronnie
O’Sullivan or Stephen Hendry
would have done that.
“I never thought I’d play until I
was 50 as Ronnie has said he
will. But who knows now if I
keep playing the way I’m playing.
“The money, the £425,000, is
great and the £880,000 I’ve earned
this season will help make up for
some problems I’ve had.
“But the first thing I’ll do is go
down to our caravan in Somerset
and have a few beers — having
won the tournament, not just
watching it on TV like last year!”
Williams is the oldest man to
win the world title since fellow
Welshman and six-time champ
Ray Reardon did it at 45 in 1978.
Reardon, now 85, said proudly:
“Mark’s always been a lovely
player to watch and whatever he
was looking for, he has found it.
I’d say he is at his peak!”
Higgins, 42, put a brave face on
a second straight final defeat,
having lost to Mark Selby in 2017.
He said: “It’s like a drug this
game — and you want more of
what we had in this final.”

Most of England’s 420 professionals

how the event will work when it
begins in 2020.
ECB chief executive Tom Harrison
and tournament supremo Sanjay Patel
tried to ease their fears during a
meeting with representatives from the
18 counties at Edgbaston yesterday.
But they failed to provide much
fresh detail.
Players cannot understand why the
ECB will abandon the successful
Twenty20 for the ‘Hundred,’ which is
untried and sounds gimmicky.
The governing body say they do not

Worcestershire’s
Daryl
Mitchell,
chairman of the Professional Cricketers’ Association, said: “There’s no competition without any players, is there?
“As a union, we’d have to feel very
strongly to go completely against it.
But we need more details, we need to
canvas opinions.
“One of the huge concerns is the
timeframe. Here we are, two years
out, and the ECB don’t officially have
a format that is set in stone. The

unanswered questions.
“We don’t even have a timeframe
each, meaning top players could earn
around £120,000 for the six-week event.

the world’s biggest stars, especially
as the event is due to clash with
the Caribbean Premier League.

Mitchell (right) added: “The ECB

MARK
WOOD
has
quit the Indian Pre-
mier League to try to keep his
England Test place. The Durham
quickie, 28, will now play against Derbyshire on Friday instead of sitting on
the bench with Chennai Super Kings.
He will give up a chunk of his
£165,000 IPL fee.
Wood played in last month’s draw
in New Zealand and is in contention for the First Test against

KLITSCHKO: I’M IN AJ’S CORNER NOW
By PAT SHEEHAN
ANTHONY JOSHUA will have
Wladimir Klitschko in his
his new-found mentor: “You’re
corner as he attempts to told
hired, you’re hired — whatever you
achieve world domination.
want, you’re hired!”
Last month AJ and Klitschko
returned to Wembley, where 12
months previously Brit superstar
Joshua stopped the Ukrainian in
the 11th round.
Joshua, who holds the WBO,
WBA and IBF heavyweight titles,
is aiming to become undisputed
heavyweight champion.
All he needs is the WBC belt
held by Deontay Wilder for the
full set — and a mega unification
bout with the American, 32, could
happen this year.
Now
Dr
Steelhammer
has
agreed to help Londoner AJ
dominate the division.
Speaking to Klitschko in a BBC
documentary
broadcast
tonight,
Joshua, 28, said: “You experienced
everything in your career.
“Your knowledge is like an
encyclopedia and is very, very
valuable to whoever you pass it on
to — hopefully me.
“There’s no one better to get
wisdom
and
knowledge
from
than yourself.
“Klitschko speaks 50 languages,
he has a PhD in every category
going at university and his mind
is a level above a lot of people.”
As the fighters stood in the
centre circle at Wembley, Joshua
Klitschko, 42, bossed the division
for more than a decade, winning
64 pro fights across 21 years.
And for the first time, he admits
he is willing to put aside his ego
and pass on his invaluable years
of wisdom.
He said: “I’ve already told
Anthony he is something quite
unique and if you look back at his
fights, I was damn right.
“I do believe you have the
capabilities to dominate the sport
for a long, long time.
“But take care of your health.
Maintain it. One thing you must
know is to never underestimate
your opponent.
“I will be super-duper happy if
I can enable him to go on to
bigger success.
“I told him that the more he
shines, the more I shine.”
The Klitschko fight proved the
making of Joshua — he was
knocked to the canvas for the
first time in his pro career as
the pair traded blows in front
of a crowd of 90,000.
AJ said: “This is the first time
we’ve met since our fight and I
have to say it’s an honour to be
here a year on.
“It takes two to tango and
Wladimir was a great dancing
partner that night, when I proved
I have the heart and ability to
compete at world level.
“It was the closest I’d ever come
to losing. It was just a classic
heavyweight fight.”
Tense talks are talking place
about Joshua facing Wilder in a
£75million superfight this autumn.
Klitschko has little doubt who
would triumph if the pair were to
make it to the ring.
He said: “They have both been
in my training camp. We have
spent plenty of rounds together.
“They are completely different
fighters at calculating punches.
“But the strength, the core and
the foundation of athleticism that
Anthony has — plus being Olympic
champion with a great amateur
background — is something Wilder
doesn’t have.
“That is crucially important and
I look forward to the match.”
Joshua sees the Wilder fight as
his sporting destiny.
He said: “Wilder is a heavyweight champion as well as me.
“In his 40 fights, he’s boxed
relatively decent opponents in his
ten-year career. He just needs that
last big one — and I need it too —
so there’s a fight pending.
“As long as fans still want me,
they will get the best from me.”

One, 10.45pm tonight
DAVID HAYE’S ex-trainer
said the boxer should have
retired long before he was
beaten for a second time
by Tony Bellew.
The
injury-plagued
bruiser is now considering
retirement after the fifthround
stoppage
at
London’s O2 left him with
back-to-back losses.
And Adam Booth, who
guided Haye, 37, to heavyweight and cruiserweight
world titles before an
acrimonious split, believes
he should never have
returned in 2016 after
three-and-a-half years out.
Booth said: “It’s hard to
see where he can go from
here. David should have
never been in there anyway — and he shouldn’t
even have been in there
last year, but he was.
“I don’t know how he is
physically but, technically,
he made some big mistakes and let Tony trade
with him.
“You don’t hook with a
hooker, if you’re not a
hooker, and David is a ‘jab
and straight right-hand’
puncher. He made the
wrong choice — and paid
the price.”

Coach Eddie Jones faces

Wasps’ Cipriani, 30, has

struggle to ignore him.
The coach said: “My
selection philosophy has

to
playing club rugby.

2001: A GOLF
ODYSSEY
Wednesday, May 9, 2018 ...............
53
By DAVID FACEY
PHIL MICKELSON warned
golf’s young guns: You’ll
never play as well as Tiger
Woods in his pomp.
Lefty had to take a back
seat at the start of the century
when his great rival won the
Tiger Slam — all four Majors.
And Mickelson claims Woods’
15-shot trouncing of the US Open
field at Pebble Beach in 2000
will never be matched.
Mickelson got a close-up look
at Woods’ spectacular play in the
2001 Players Championship —
which the 14-time Major champ
also won en route to his Slam.
The duo are paired together
again for the first two rounds of
this year’s Players, which starts
at Sawgrass tomorrow.
And Mickelson, 47, warned
Rory McIlroy & Co they are in
dreamland if they think they can
get even close to rivalling Woods’
period of dominance.
He said: “I don’t think we’ll
ever see that level of play again.
“It was the most remarkable
golf in the history of the game.
And I think it’s unrepeatable. It
was that good.
“I look at the 2000 US Open
as being the benchmark, as the
greatest golf I’ve ever witnessed
— and, I believe, has ever been
played.
“And it sucked to have to play
against him, it really did. You
look at it and you say, ‘How am
I going to beat this?’.
“There was a stretch there of a
number of years that it was so
impressive that it was hard to
imagine that it was actually happening, that he was hitting some
of the shots that he was hitting
Tiger era ‘unrepeatable’
and playing that well. The guys
today look back and they say,
‘Come on, how much better
could he have been?’
“But they weren’t there to
witness it, so they can’t fully
appreciate just how extraordinary
his golf was.”
Mickelson added: “My record
against him also used to suck but
it’s gotten better over the years.
“I love the fact that we’ve been
paired
together
again. It hasn’t
happened
anywhere on Thursday-Friday
for
about four years.
“Now
that
it’s
happened, it’s cool to
pick
up
the
local
newspaper and see it
on the front page.
“I guess that shows
how much interest it has
created.
“It’s going to be a lot of
fun and hopefully it will
add
something
to
the
tournament.”
Woods (right), 42, admitted he looks back at the
highlights of that run to try
to inspire him to more success —
especially as he has now gone
five years without a win and ten
without adding to his Major haul.
He said: “I do go back and look
at those tournaments, because I
was on a pretty good run.
“I held all four Majors, the

Mickelson, who has five

MANCHESTER CITY keeper
Ederson celebrated the club’s

new tattoo.
The devout Christian, 24,
had images of Jesus and God
inked on the entirety of his
right leg.
His Instagram post showing
off the artwork came soon
after City lifted the Premier

The Brazilian already has
more than 30 tattoos all over
his body, including the words
‘I belong to Jesus’ on his
chest and distinctive images
on his neck and arms.

SPEEDWAY: Premiership Riders’
Championship (Poole, 7.30).
Spurs have won just once in four Premier
League games and could miss out on a topfour spot — and a place in next season’s
Champions League — if Chelsea can make up
a two-point gap in the final two games.
Pochettino’s team host Leicester in Sunday’s
top-flight closer in what is set to be their
final home game at Wembley before moving
to a new stadium. He said: “To win the
Champions League is a dream of everyone.
“It’s impossible to not give your best in the
last two games to win.
“It’s
massive
because
the
Champions
League is, with the Premier League, the best
competition in the world.
“It’s in our own hands and we need to die
to try to achieve that.
“Now it’s not, ‘We need to play two strikers,
three defenders’, it’s about the players who
are going to play to die to try to achieve.
“If we cannot, we cannot. That is different
— we need to analyse why.
“But now we have to be all together, to
fight for that, with our fans and to create a
good atmosphere for this game and Sunday.
“To play Champions League in the new
stadium would be fantastic.
“That was always our dream, to have the
possibility to fight with this kind of club.
“We arrived four years ago and the team
was sixth and it was, ‘The dream is to fight
and to reduce the gap’.
“That is the truth but four years later we
are there. But win? It’s not an easy thing to
achieve like this, like magic. We are in a
good race to win some titles one day.”
Pochettino’s side lost 1-0 at West Brom on
Saturday but he insists the cash generated by
a run in the Champions League is not a key
factor in the club’s future planning.
His chairman Daniel Levy, though, is
unlikely to agree — Spurs earned more than
£50million from the competition this season,
while Liverpool are in line for £70m-plus.
Asked whether chairman Levy is counting
on the European revenue next season, Poch
added: “I think Daniel is fine with the
money. It is not a problem.
“The plan four years ago was not to play
every season in the Champions League, just
to be sure the club is going to survive.
“If you overachieve, fantastic. You have
more money to invest. But I don’t think
money is a problem.”
Eric Dier, meanwhile, has been ruled out of
the game at Wembley tonight with an illness.
Pochettino said: “He started to vomit with
a fever and now he needs 48 hours to
recover. We hope he will be available for the
weekend and I believe he will be.”
As for tonight’s opponents, Newcastle, Poch
said: “They have had a fantastic season. Rafa
Benitez has done a brilliant job.”

Toon have never spent
more than the £16million they
paid to bring Michael Owen
from Real Madrid in 2005.
Unsurprisingly, that is comfortably the longest-standing
club record in the Premier
League — 14 teams even broke
their record this season.
But Toon’s top Premier
League scorer this season is
Ayoze Perez with just six. And
with a guarantee of more than
ten to 15 goals per season, you
have to pay money for sure.
“More than £16m? In this
market, yes.
“Someone has to be expensive to be sure that you have
the quality that you need in
the Premier League.
“If you want to compete

money. Does that mean you
have to break the record? If
it is necessary, you can do it."
Benitez has been linked
with Atletico Madrid’s out-of

Fernando
Torres — but believes the
Spaniard fancies a new experience in a different country,
possibly the MLS.
The Toon boss, who had
Torres at Liverpool, said:
“Fernando is a great player,
he did really well for us.
“He’s an icon, and idol at
Atletico Madrid but I don't
know what he will do in the

“It’s been a tough few

“I’m going to do all I

But he limped out of the
win over Holland, then
rushed back to action to
help his clubmates.
After playing through
the pain in the draw with
Stoke on April 28, he
aggravated the problem.
That ruled him out of
the Champions League

and the decision was
made to go under the

the injury with injections.

GARETH SOUTHGATE is to

It will be one of the
earliest to be announced
compared to other nations
heading to Russia.
The Three Lions boss
will deliver the news
either next Wednesday or
Thursday and it will be a
FINAL 23-man list plus
some standby names.
England’s next game is
against Nigeria on June 2
and countries must give
Fifa their final party of 23
two days later.
Yet Southgate wants to
use the coming weeks as
a training camp for his
selected players rather
than a trial for those
still dreaming of making
the cut.
Southgate will look at
Sunday’s final Premier
League
games
before
making the announcement
at Wembley.
England must hand Fifa
a
provisional
35-man
squad on Monday but that
will not be made public.
There will be standby
stars on the list and they
will be expected to wait
before going on holiday.

ANTONIO CONTE wants a swift
resolution to his Chelsea limbo.
The
Blues’
coach
insists
he
is
committed to the club despite mounting
speculation he will be sacked this
summer with 12 months still left on his
£9.6million-a-year contract.
Tonight’s home game against relegation-threatened Huddersfield may turn
out to be his Stamford Bridge swansong.
Chelsea are at Newcastle for
Sunday’s season finale before
facing Manchester United in a
Wembley FA Cup final in ten
days’ time.
Conte (left) said: “There are two weeks
and this season will finish and you will
know if there is a different situation or
if you see me again next season.
“It is very difficult to comment on any
speculation because it has been around
me from the start of the season after
the first game against Burnley.
“I think you understood this speculation is not important for me because my
focus is only to work in the best
possible way with my players.
“Right now it is important to be
focused on the present and to finish this
season in the best possible way.
“This is not my task to tell if I did a
good job, or if I have a good team
for next season, or if we are building
something important.
“There is the club and people able to
make judgments about this season. I
think I am the last person to make a
judgment on it.”
Conte’s fifth-placed side are mounting
a late charge for the top four.
They trail Spurs by two points and
are three behind Liverpool in third —
with a game in hand on the Scousers.
Italian Conte, 48, added: “For sure
there is disappointment because this
season we dropped many points in a
stupid way against teams, especially
games we dominated.
“But now is not the time for regret
because we have to play two games
and then the FA Cup and at the end
of the season we will see.”

WILSHERE . . . talks in balance

stay here
ARSENE’S AFTER
By MARK IRWIN
JACK
WILSHERE
will
finally sign a new Arsenal
contract, according to
Arsene Wenger.
Wilshere, 26, is set to
become a free agent this
month and is still negotiating a new deal after
being told he must take a
25 per cent pay-cut.
But
Gunners
boss
Wenger said: “The latest
conversation I had with
Jack looks positive.
“I am convinced his
future is here. It was
always my wish that he
will be here next season.
“I’ve known Jack since
he was 15 and watched
him grow from a kid to a
man. We have built a
special relationship.
“He went from being a
superstar to being out for
a year and that is very
difficult to deal with.”
Wenger also confirmed
Mesut Ozil, 29, will miss
Arsenal’s final two games
with a back problem.
But he insisted he does
not let the German pick
and choose his games.
He said: “A player can
get over the pain for one
game but afterwards there
is
a
recurrence
of
inflammation. That’s what
happened to Ozil — at the
moment he is injured.”
Laurent Koscielny could
be sidelined until the New
Year after surgery on his
ruptured Achilles.
The Arsenal defender,
32, was injured against
Atletico Madrid last week.
2GM
DOWN ON HIS LUCK
. . . Wenger on holiday
in Corscia in 2011 — but
the Frenchman prefers
to be in the bootroom
WAYNE
From Back Page
and
last
month
he
enraged Rooney when he
subbed him in the Mersey
derby against Liverpool,
— with Rooney shown
shouting ‘Bulls***!’ as he
sat on the bench.
It is believed DC United
initially approached the
Three Lions’ record scorer
last year before he left
United for Everton.
Rooney instead joined
Ronald Koeman’s side but
the Dutchman was then
axed in October and
replaced by Allardyce.
Big Sam has divided
fans in his short stint at
Everton and recently said
it would take a ‘massive’
offer to persuade them to
allow Rooney to leave.
Allardyce told talkSPORT
yesterday:
“There
are
rumours
about
Wayne
going elsewhere abroad,
“But at the moment he’s
an Everton player and Everton fan. I wouldn’t consider
anything on the cards.”
HE MIGHT be pushing 69
but Arsene Wenger has no
intention of hanging up his
boots any time soon.
Football’s most sprightly pensioner cannot imagine life without his daily dose of trainingground tonic.
So even though he is being reluctantly ushered towards the Arsenal
exit this week, he still refuses to
contemplate retirement.
And while he has finally opened the
door to an upstairs job, his clear
preference for next season is to
remain in management.
Wenger certainly has no intention to
spend the next few months sunning
himself by the side of an exotic swimming pool while sipping a cocktail.
He still recalls those infamous
photos of him on a water slide and
concedes: “I don’t look very good on
the beach.”
But the subject of his next move is
no laughing matter. And on the eve of
his penultimate game as Arsenal boss
By MARK
IRWIN
at Leicester tonight, Wenger declared:
“People look at your age and make
such an issue of it that it becomes a
bit of discrimination.
“They don’t really look at how you
work and perform. They just say, ‘Oh,
he is old’.
“I can understand that attitude
because I thought the same way when
I was young.
“But I keep myself fit, I run every
day and I still play football if I can.
“I don’t join in with the players
because they are a bit too quick for
me but I play in staff games.
“And if I was being really objective,
then I would pick myself every week!”
The pencil-thin Frenchman still tips
the scales at 75kg, exactly the same
weight as when he first arrived at
Arsenal in that ill-fitting suit all those
years ago. He revealed: “You know, I
didn’t miss a single training session in
22 years.
“I never stayed in my office. I am
out there every day because I still
enjoy that and I know it is something
I will miss.”
It is an open secret that French billionaires Paris Saint-Germain are
keen to make Wenger their new
director of football.
And that is not the only job offer
he has received to work behind the
scenes. “General manager?” he asked.
“That is what I have to decide.
“My spontaneous reaction is to
remain in day-to-day management but
maybe, with a bit of distance, I will
think, ‘No, perhaps it’s time to change
a little bit of direction’.
“I honestly can’t give you an answer
at the moment because I don’t know.
“My relationship with PSG president
Nasser Al-Khelaifi is more based on
my work for his media company.
“When he started his job with beIN
Sports when he was a young boy, I
was his first contact, his first signing.
“That’s why we have a good
relationship and I was always with
beIN. But that doesn’t influence any
decisions about my future.
“I will continue to work for as long
as I want to but I don’t know how
long that will be.
“I have always liked the English
saying ‘you must live every day like it
is your last’.
“Because one day you will be right.”
Wenger has been personally touched
by the news that his old sparring
partner Sir Alex Ferguson is currently
recuperating from emergency brain
surgery.
It is the fear of descending into old
age and its subsequent health problems which continues to drive him
forward rather than resting on his
laurels.
And while clearly he has his views
on who should replace him at the
Emirates, he is keeping his thoughts
very much to himself.
He insisted: “I know that all the
names that have been mentioned are
very competent but I don’t want to
come out publicly for any of them.
“If I go for this or that one, it puts
him under pressure straight away, so

it’s better if I stay neutral. If the club
wants my advice I’ll give it to them
and I’d recommend that they keep
some of the current coaching staff.
“But the people who come in will
also want their own staff, so it’s a
matter of finding the right adjustment.
“Personally, I always tried to have a
local person like Pat Rice and Steve
Bould, who know the culture, the
habits and traditions of the club and
make sure you don’t make mistakes.
“But that’s not my decision. So like
all other Arsenal fans I will wait until
they’ve made the decision and then
support the guy in doing well.”
When Wenger does finally clear his
desk at Arsenal’s training ground at
London Colney on Saturday, he is not
going to need a big lorry to help him
move his belongings.
He admitted: “My office is quite
empty. I gave most things away so I
will not have a lot to take out.
“This has been a fantastic period
for me but I always look forward
rather than backwards.
“So now I have to turn the page
and go on for the next challenge.”

BACK IN THE DAY . . . Puel and boss
Wenger training with Monaco in 1989
No more
kickings,
says Puel
By GRAHAM HILL
CLAUDE PUEL once feared for his
future in the game — after kicking
Arsene Wenger in training.
Outgoing Arsenal boss Wenger
managed the former midfielder at
Monaco from 1987 to 1994.
Current Leicester boss Puel —
whose side host the Gunners
tonight — said: “Arsene liked to
play in smaller games in training.
“One time the ball was between
us and I touched the ball.
“Behind the ball was Arsene
and he flew up in the air, fell on
his back and could not move.
“The fitness coach took him to
the dressing room and I was left
with a bad feeling.
“Other players were smiling and
I was thinking I was finished and
would not play in the future.
“It wasn’t a lack of respect but
the intensity of the training.
“Training sessions and matches,
it was the same thing.
“Quickly I played the next
game, it was OK — Arsene will
get a friendlier welcome tonight! I
have a lot of respect for him.”
Puel’s Foxes have lost four of
their last five games and are
without Marc Albrighton tonight.
The midfielder missed Saturday’s
2-0 defeat to West Ham for his
red card at Crystal Palace — and
yesterday accepted an FA misconduct charge, meaning his season
is over.

And Wenger admitted: “Yes, I

“I haven’t analysed or considered
any of them yet because I am still

“I will continue to be active. My

French champions Paris SaintGermain want Wenger as director

linked with a return to former club
Monaco to replace Leonardo Jardim.
As well as interest from China,
there is the possibility of helping
new Japan boss Akira Nishino at
this summer’s World Cup finals in
Russia on a short-term appointment.
And both Fifa and Uefa have
been examining a role for him.
Wenger added: “I don’t want to go
into detail on any offers, I have to
think about them.
“I like green grass and I like to
walk on it every morning.
“I don’t know if I’ll continue to do
that but it’s possible.”
THE World Cup trophy

PREMIER LEAGUEE
BLAME . . . Peter Coates
BLIGHT
From Back Page
vowed to conduct “a
major overhaul” into the
way the crisis club is run
after their Premier League
relegation was confirmed
last Saturday.
Hughes was sacked on
January 6, hours after the
Potters had crashed out
of the FA Cup to League
Two Coventry.
But the real damage had
been done long before
then with a string of
disastrous signings.
Hughes prided himself
on his knack of being able
to resurrect the careers
of players who had lost
their way, such as Marko
Arnautovic and Bojan.
But his most recent
buys bombed as he blew a
club-record
£18.3million
on Gianelli Imbula, £12m
on Saido Berahino and
£18m on Kevin Wimmer.
Even
on-loan
striker
Jese
turned
into
an
embarrassing disaster as
he went AWOL in Spain
and netted just once.
At least he scored —
Berahino clocked up TWO
YEARS without a goal for
West Brom and Stoke
combined.
Charlie Adam and Jack
Butland have blasted the
attitude of some of their
Stoke team-mates.
And in their statement,
Peter and John Coates
said: “Unfortunately the
squad became unbalanced
and perhaps we lost some
of the core values that
have served us so well
and are so crucial when
you have a bad spell.
“It is absolutely clear
that a major overhaul is
required. We need to
regain our identity and
focus and the summer will
be spent doing this.”
There was no mention
of boss Paul Lambert’s
future at the club.

Forget hotel...
Manolo ’n Co
are Premier in
By NEIL
ASHTON
CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER
SOUTHAMPTON have been
given a clean bill of health.
Swapping team hotels before
the game because of the threat
of a virus, they are now over
the worst of it.
And their spirit must be catching
because substitute Manolo Gabbiadini
rediscovered his best form to win
this for Southampton after 72 chaotic
minutes at the Liberty.
Saints, dead and buried a month
ago, are on the verge of safety.
The wild celebrations at full-time
are a bit premature but it will take a
remarkable set of results on “Survival
Sunday” to relegate them now.
That looks instead like Swansea’s
fate. Carlos Carvalhal, their rent-ajoke manager, is about to take them
down after this appalling display.
The last laugh is on him now.
Carvalhal did not seem to understand the significance of losing to
Southampton with a game left.
They face relegated Stoke here on
Sunday at 3pm, a fixture they will
get used to playing when both clubs
are in the Championship next season.
Victory
for
Southampton,
their
second in three super-tense Premier
League fixtures, takes them three
points clear of Swansea.
Even if they are battered by
Manchester City at St Mary’s on Sunday, their goal difference gives them
a huge advantage over Swansea.
There is only one place in the
bottom three to be decided and
Swansea seem hell-bent on taking it.
To play like this in front of their
own fans, to fail to put Alex
McCarthy’s goal under serious threat
at any stage, is lamentable.
They lacked guts and goals.
For Swansea to go down — after
beating Liverpool and Arsenal in
successive home games at the start of
the year — is beyond shameful.
Southampton will not be sorry to
see them go.
The celebrations in the visiting
dressing room, with whooping and
hollering bouncing down the corridor
before they started banging the floor
with their studs, was deafening.
Then came the boom box, with
5
Chase the Sun by Planet Funk — the
song synonymous with darts — being
played at full blast.
Well, Southampton hit a 180 here.
Gabbiadini only came off the bench
after Saints defender Jan Bednarek
was KO’d by his own keeper
McCarthy on 67 minutes.
But five minutes later the Italian
striker looked razor sharp when he
sniffed out the winner.
Dusan Tadic slung in the corner,
with Oriel Romeu and Charlie Austin
first to challenge inside the area.
When it fell to Gabbiadini, he
stabbed it past Lukasz Fabianski with
the help of a couple of deflections.
Beyond that it was bedlam.
Southampton’s raucous fans knew
the score, with the winning goal
MANOLO GABBIADINI’S goal was
only his fifth in his last 41
games for Southampton in all
competitions — one fewer
than he managed in his first
four games for Saints.

almost securing their Premier League
status for another year.
It is a massive result. It was a

Others, like Saints

MEMO TO CITY
CATERING STAFF
(1992-present)
Rickie Lambert
(
Yet tonight there will be a big knees-up as
City say a fond farewell to one of their greatest
ever players. He is expected to lead the team out
against Brighton — with boss Pep Guardiola
promising him he can play where he wants.
A presentation is planned after the game, while
a pitch over the road at the City Football
Academy will be renamed after the midfielder.
And Toure, who is 35 on Sunday, has warned
his team-mates they cannot spoil it for him.
Guardiola said: “Without doubt he was one of
the most important players in our history.
“We will give him what he deserves. One of
the most beautiful farewells a player can receive.”
City chairman Khaldoon Al
Mubarak said: “The word ‘legend’
can often be misapplied.
“But in describing Yaya’s status
as a City player, there is no more
appropriate a term. He is a very
special footballer.”
Toure leaves with his place in
club folklore guaranteed — with
three league title medals and four
domestic cups to his name.
Who could have predicted that
when he signed in summer 2010?
The former Barcelona star said:
“The club has changed a lot. But
it’s been my pleasure. I feel like I
have contributed to something.”
In fact, few have contributed
more than him. Quite simply, he
has been a colossus for City for
much of his eight-year stay.
Yet controversy never seems to have been far
away — often thanks to his madcap agent Dimitri
Seluk. His brilliance on the pitch has regularly
gone hand-in-hand with chaos off it.
Former director of football Brian Marwood
pulled off a major coup when he landed Toure
and David Silva in the space of two days back in
June 2010. Eyebrows were raised about the
£24million fee paid to Barca and the
reported £240,000 a week wages.
But Toure quickly established
himself as a City icon. His
2011 Wembley winner in the
FA Cup semi-final against
Manchester United was a
pivotal and unforgettable
moment in City’s rise
to the top.
And Yaya recalled:
“To win that was
brilliant, awesome. It
was one of my
biggest
moments.”

an apology from the
midfielder — which he finally
received from troubled Toure
in November.
Back in summer 2014, Manchester City’s
title celebrations in Abu Dhabi were
famously rocked by the Ivorian, who was
unhappy his 31st birthday had not been
properly acknowledged by the club.

Not only that, he followed it up with the winner in
the final against Stoke — ending City’s 35-year wait
for a trophy.
Twelve months later, his two late goals at Newcastle in the penultimate game of that season set
things up perfectly for THAT game against QPR.
But in March 2013, Seluk was up to his old
tricks when he grumbled there were not enough
posters of his client around the stadium.
He also suggested the Toure replica shirts were
not prominent enough around the club shop.
While it left many at City scratching their heads,
his player soon got the new deal he wanted.
And thank goodness for the club that he did,
as Toure was outstanding in the Premier League
title triumph of 2013-4. And he also scored a
wonder goal in the Capital One
Cup final win over Sunderland at
IT’S PITCH Wembley — once again digging
PERFECT
. . . tribute his team out of a hole.
Yet before long, there was
to Yaya at
trouble brewing. Just days after
Academy
the squad returned from their
title celebrations in Abu Dhabi,
the birthday cake saga erupted.
Once again it was sorted out
and he went on to lift more
silverware. In the 2016 League
Cup final win over Liverpool, it
was Toure — who else? — who
stroked
home
the
winning
penalty in the shootout.
Soon after his old Nou Camp
boss Pep arrived, there was
another storm as Seluk suggested
Toure had been left ‘humiliated’.
The Ivorian had played just once for the club
in the opening weeks of the season — and the
new boss said he would not play again until he
received an apology.
That duly arrived in November 2016 and,
typically, Toure marked his return by scoring
both in the win at Crystal Palace.
He was a key player for the rest of Pep’s first
season, earning a new one-year deal. Perhaps,
with hindsight, he should have gone then.
He has not started a league game this season,
although his nine sub appearances ensure he gets
a medal. But it was no surprise to anyone when
Guardiola confirmed on Friday that Yaya would
be leaving in the summer.
Finally, his City curtain call has arrived and he
will bow out on Sunday at Southampton.
How ironic that it should also be his birthday.
Toure, 34, smiled: “Yes, after May 13 — which is
going to be my birthday again — I will be free.
“But it’s going to be good and it’s going to be
sad because I’m going to miss the fans a lot.”
And you can be sure City will miss Yaya too.

Manchester City legend.
The
Ivory
Coast

to Etihad fans tonight
after
winning
three
Prem titles, two League
Cups and the FA Cup

joining

Hughton said: “When
individuals look back at
the great players of
Manchester City, he
has certainly been one
of them.
“Someone will not
play to allow him to
play against us — but
he’s not a bad player to
bring in, is he?”
Hughton might hope
Kevin de Bruyne will be
the man left out.
He rates the Belgian
the Premier League’s
best player — even
though he was pipped
to two Footballer of the
Year awards by Liverpool’s Mo Salah.
The Seagulls chief
added: “De Bruyne is
the
more
complete
player and it’s taken
an exceptional season
from Salah to win it.
“The progress De
Bruyne has made is
huge. He could play for
any team in the world.”
Brighton have stayed
up despite taking just
11 points on the road
— yet they have not
lost an away game by
more than two goals.
They face champions

Shame
England
only has Theresa
May to offer in the
No 10 role.
But
perhaps
the
most
extraordinary
accolade which Goldenballs can now boast
is that he sent mild-mannered Sir Trevor
Brooking “wild” in the process.
When Motty’s life behind the mic comes to
an end on Sunday he will have called more
than 2,000 games, including ten World Cup
finals and 29 FA Cup finals.
And of all the goals he has described, he
picked out the 1996 Becks strike against
Wimbledon, which announced a new star to
the world, and the one in 2001, which
stopped
the
world
falling
in
on
English football.
Motty said: “David Beckham times
two, really — the goal from the
halfway line and the match-saver
against Greece.
“That second one was probably
the most dramatic because it
came right at the end of the
game. England went to the
World Cup because of that.
“It was a very emotional goal.
I remember I knocked nearly
everything off my desk on the
gantry when he scored that.
“We went wild, Trevor Brooking
and I.”
The image of Sir Trev losing the
plot
is
hard
to
picture,
but
generations of fans have had their
football lives soundtracked by the
excited, delighted tones of Motson.
Some preferred his more reserved
former BBC colleague Barry Davies.
But when the pair were going
head-to-head
for
the
biggest
assignments, it was Motson who came
out on top most often.
He said: “We are still on very good
terms. I had a good luck message
from him only the other day. There
was no personal animosity.
“It was just two guys, very
different in their approach and style,
competing to get the No 1 job.
“I was a bit bull at a gate and full of
gushing enthusiasm. Barry was a little bit
more restrained and had a better vocabulary
than I did.
“He took a slightly more detached view on
things probably.
“Somebody
once
said,
‘Barry
commentates from the grandstand and
John’s talking from the terraces’.
“That’s what one of our heads of sport
said and I think that summed it
up really.”
Although Motson saw off Davies,
who retired in 2004, even he
cannot outrun time.
He will turn 73 in July and,
having announced at the start of
the season that this would be
his last, will call it a day after
this weekend’s final round of Premier
League games.
The BBC will celebrate Motty’s life in
football with a special evening of shows on
BBC2 on May 19.
It will be a great opportunity to relive
some of his most famous moments, starting
with that career-changing 1972 Ronnie
Radford goal for Hereford against Newcastle
in his first season as a television commentator.
But for all his longevity, there is no “good
old days” nonsense about Motty.
He said: “The game is much better now.
The players are fitter and more athletic and
the
game
is
faster.
There’s
more

working at Hayter’s Sports Agency at
the start of my career, one of my weekly
tasks was compiling ‘pen pix’ for Match
of the Day.
These were profiles, with stats and
interesting facts, of all the players who
might be involved in the featured games
that Saturday night.
If one of my bits of research made it
through MOTD statistician Albert Sewell
and into the show, it was a huge thrill,
even in such a small way.
So it’s no wonder Motty has loved
being such a big part of the lives of
generations of football fans.
television. So much has changed
and even he admitted he cannot
keep up with every live game now.
Motson said: “Players come into
a ground now shepherded by
security and with headphones on
and you don’t get the chance to
interact with them like I did in
the 70s.”
Despite
all
that,
Motty
is
overwhelmingly positive about the
modern game, including the growing
number of female commentators.
He said: “I think it’s excellent. I
commentated on the women’s FA Cup
final at Bedford in 1976.
“Women’s football just hadn’t got going.
The FA had only just given it the
green light.
“With women’s football breaking down the
barriers in recent years, it was inevitable
that in journalism and the media women
who knew about football were going to
make a breakthrough.
“A woman commentating on the men’s FA
Cup final? It will happen one day.
“When? That will depend on the quality of
the commentator, male or female.”
But none, man or woman, will play as
central a role in people’s lives as Motty has.
He will miss football and football will
miss him.
He added: “I still love doing it and I have
right up to the present time.
“Jaundiced? I’ve never been that, even in
those dark days in the 80s when we were
worried about the future of football. I never
lost my faith in the game.
“I’ve never lost my enthusiasm. Up to and
including my final match on Sunday, I shall
be giving it my all.”

Motson, airs on May 19 on BBC Two.

The
Huddersfield
keeper
agreed a permanent deal at
the John Smith’s Stadium
recently after impressing for
David Wagner’s men.
And he is doing his bit to
ensure the Terriers stay in
the top-flight, keeping a clean
sheet
against
free-scoring
champions Manchester City
on Sunday.
Next for the 29-year-old is
the small matter of Chelsea
tonight and Arsenal on the
final day.
He may never boast a CV
like Schmeichel’s but he is
still keen to make his mark.
The former Mainz stopper
said: “Nobody needs to put
words into my mouth about
following Peter.
“It would be fantastic to
play in the Premier League
for years to come like he did
and show what I can do.
“Peter was a great keeper,
he had a fantastic career — as
has his lad Kasper.
“I am just very happy I am
here and have a permanent
deal with Huddersfield.
“Hopefully we can have
more seasons in the Premier
League because it has always
been the biggest ambition for
me. It has always stood top.”
Lossl is likely to be working with Leicester’s Kasper at
the World Cup in a few
weeks’ time but cannot afford
to think about that yet.
Last weekend he became
the first keeper to stop City
scoring in a Premier League
game at the Etihad since
Manchester United’s David De
Gea more than a year ago.
And he will need more of
the same if Huddersfield are
to pull off their great escape.
He said: “The only thing

Chelsea and Arsenal. I’ve
never had fear of facing those
teams, but respect — and I
still have that.
“What we did against City
was amazing. We fought for
everything and kept them out.
“It was a massive point.
Now we have to do it again.

right
attitude,
the
right
momentum and right plan,
we’re a very strong team.”

David Wagner’s Terriers

safety and the Moroccoborn star (right) is eyeing a
switch after Basel failed to
defend their title this term.
Elyounoussi — under contract
until 2021 — scored twice in
Sunday’s 4-2 win at St Gallen.
He said: “I’m hungry to
show what I can do. I could
make a move this summer.
“Mo Salah inspires me. He
is one of several players to do
well after leaving Basel.
“Could I move to an English
club? It depends on who
comes in for me.”
PACKS A PUNCH . . .
Huddersfield keeper
Jonas Lossl clears the
ball against Watford
alive their faint hopes of
reaching the top four.
Lossl and manager Wagner
have promised they will make
life as difficult as they can —
just as they did at City’s title
party.
The keeper added: “As the
coach would say, we are an
uncomfortable team to play.
We have shown that against
the big teams.
“We know we are not going
to dominate a team like that
— but we do what we do.
“When I talked to David
the first time he explained
what we are about.
“We knew we were going to
be the smallest team in the
league, but we had to be the
best team, together, and in a
lot of games we have shown
how strong we are.”
Lossl’s first target of earning a permanent move to
West Yorkshire was realised
this spring. A deal was
agreed with his club back in
Germany for him to become
a Town player from July 1.
With that ticked off he has
one more aim to achieve by
Sunday evening.
He added: “When I came
on loan, I wanted to play
well and stay.
“I signed last month and
that was my goal. It’s a big
boost for me. I feel I’ve done
well. If, and when, we reach
our target of staying in the
Premier League I will be
very, very proud.”
Then
his
attention
will
quickly shift to the World Cup
where he is expected to be
part of Age Hareide’s squad.
His aim there will be to
put pressure on Schmeichel
Jr — and maybe even get a
taste of action himself.
He said: “My main mission
is to take the form from this
season and to push Kasper. I
need to do that for him to
perform well, but also to get
the chance to play myself.
“It would be a dream to
play in the World Cup but
the only thing on my mind
now is keeping Huddersfield
Town up.”

OLDHAM have axed chairman Simon Corney after

A club statement said: “Following a shareholder

IPSWICH started their summer clearout by

around £5million.
Lacroix wants his future resolved before the
World Cup. And Everton risk a price hike, and
more competition, if he impresses in Russia.

HE was the man who inspired
the managers of Manchester
wait
for
the
gates to open. He failed
City and Manchester United.
According to Gary Lineker, he is
“the best English manager of all
time” and Alan Shearer credits
him with saving his football career.
Now Sir Bobby Robson’s life is
portrayed on the big screen in a
film that charts his rise from the
coal-mining village of Langley
Park, through his football career,
his sterling charity work and his
lengthy battle against cancer.
Robson nurtured the careers of
some of the game’s best talents,
from Lineker and Shearer to Brazil
ace Ronaldo and Paul Gascoigne.
And it is that relationship with
Gazza which stands out in Bobby
Robson: More Than A Manager.
In the film, ex-England star
Gazza says: “He was a
father figure. He was phenomenal for me. Under Sir
Bobby, I knew I was safe.
“I would put him alongside Muhammad Ali in
football terms. He was
more than a manager.”
Gascoigne’s
relationship
with fellow Geordie Robson
started ahead of the 1990
World Cup, which ended
with the midfielder in tears
after England’s semi-final
loss on penalties to West Germany.
Their connection remained long
after Robson ceased being Gazza’s
international manager, as he would
frequently send people to check on
his former player’s well-being.
Lineker
(above)
says:
“The
relationship between Bobby and
Gazza was extraordinary. A lot of
joy and a lot of love — but also a
lot of frustration and tellings-off.”
Interviews, home videos and
match footage are pieced together
and stars he managed deliver a
fascinating insight into his career.
On his childhood, Robson recalls
how he and his father never
missed a first-team game and
would turn up at St James’ Park
three hours before kick-off and
to break through at Newcastle as a
youngster but signed for Fulham,
where he played over 300 games.
He won 20 England caps and
scored four goals but it is his
achievements as a manager for
which he is remembered.
At Ipswich he won the 1978 FA
Cup and the 1981 Uefa Cup.
He got the England job in 1982
and took the team to the ’86 World
Cup where Diego Maradona’s Hand
of God goal knocked them out.
His England exit features heavily,
as does his time at Barcelona.
He made Jose Mourinho his
assistant at Barca and the United
boss speaks highly of him. Robson
also recruited Ronaldo from PSV
and he scored a clubrecord 47 goals in a season.
Ronaldo recalls: “I was
playing
my
best
with
people I loved. He trusted
me a lot and that was
everything I wanted.”
But Robson’s time in
Spain was overshadowed by
a boardroom battle over
bringing in Louis van Gaal.
Pep Guardiola, a Barca
player at the time, praised
the way he coped with it.
The City boss says: “It’s not easy
to manage Barcelona, especially in
that period. I learned when I saw
him how lonely the manager feels.
“And in the bad moments he was
always there with a typical smile.”
It is revealed Robson turned
down Newcastle before later being
persuaded to take over following
the turbulent reign of Ruud Gullit.
Shearer said: “He saved Newcastle and he saved my career.”
A year after his death from lung
cancer in 2009, Robson’s foundation
had raised in excess of £2.5m.
His legacy ensures he is still
changing people’s lives long after
his own has ended.
BOBBY ROBSON: More Than A Manager is out at select
theatres on June 1. Now available to pre-order. Digital
download from June 1 and Blu-Ray/DVD from June 4.
