Paul Pogba is devoid of the mentality required to become a ‘real leader’ at Manchester United, according to Lothar Matthaus. Pogba was stripped of the club’s vice-captaincy after questioning manager Jose Mourinho’s tactics following United’s draw against Wolves last month, and failed to perform in the Reds’ dispiriting stalemate against Valencia this week. United fans are still to see form befitting of a World Cup winner from the France international since his club-record £89.3 million move from Juventus in 2016, and Matthaus, who won the World Cup with Germany in 1990, believes Pogba does not compare to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. “People ask whether Paul Pogba can be a leader or a captain at Manchester United,” said Matthaus. “He is a key player, a good player and he plays in the right position, but for me he isn’t a real leader like (Steven) Gerrard.” Matthaus highlights Pogba’s social media … [Read more...] about World Cup legend tells Paul Pogba he’s not a real leader like Liverpool FC hero

Cottonwood Park, the largest public gathering place in Hildale, Utah, nestles in the midst of a surreally gorgeous landscape. Rugged cliffs and stunning canyons dramatically rear and stretch in the distance, framed against a crystal blue sky. Newcomers to the area never fail to remark on the vista, to which the people who see it every day simply nod with pride. There’s something about the land here, the locals say; something that calls them back when they leave. The park is crowded this afternoon. The smell of fresh turf fills the air, which is whipped into a chilling wind by early spring, despite the sun. Residents of Hildale and its sister town across the state line, Colorado City (the two towns are collectively known as Short Creek) have worked all day to replace the barren, dusty ground with a thick layer of grass and soil, but only about a quarter of the park has been completed. There’s still plenty of work to be done.

The leader of the opposition in Russia, Alexei Navalny, was detained on Saturday outside his home in Moscow ahead of planned nationwide anti-government protest rallies. His spokeswoman said he was later taken to a hospital with a suspected broken finger. Navalny was detained on Saturday afternoon and taken to a nearby police station due to an unsanctioned rally in January, Kira Yarmysh said. Moscow police were not immediately available for comment on the detention or on Navalny’s reported injury. Navalny, the most formidable political foe of Russian president Vladimir Putin, has called for nationwide rallies in early September to protest against the Russian government’s plans to raise the retirement ages for both men and women. The issue has outraged and united a wide range of Russians from different political backgrounds. Navalny, who rose to prominence thanks to his investigations into official corruption, published a report on Friday alleging that at least $29m … [Read more...] about Russian opposition leader injured following detention
