IT’S like DAT and DAT’s the way it is. Welcome to the ‘Donegal and Tyrone’ show. The dominant Ulster counties of this decade have been on top once again this year. With the Red Hands already into the All-Ireland semi-finals and Donegal as Ulster champs aiming to join them there – and possibly meet them again – players from those two counties undoubtedly will be to the forefront for our annual provincial honours.

Nani provided 73 assists and found the net 40 times in 230 appearances for the Premier League club before joining Turkish side Fenerbahce in 2015. Following spells with Valencia, Lazio and former club Sporting, the 32-year-old joined Major League Soccer outfit Orlando City on a free transfer in February. And it appears that the winger, who has 112 caps for his country, has been hard at work since making the move to the United States earlier this year. Although he is now well into his 30s, the former … [Read more...] about Former Man Utd star shows off stunning physique in gym picture
