& # 39; Are you talking about the goals he scored or the goals he missed? & # 39 ;: Jose Mourinho shares a joke with two-target hero Son Heung-min after wasting opportunities before hitting the late winner

  • Son Heung-min scored twice during Tottenham's 3-2 win over Aston Villa
  • The South Korean star scored the winner in stopping time for visitors
  • ] Jose Mourinho joked with his player about his wasted chances for the winner

Son Heung-min was the hero for ] Tottenham after scoring a late winner for his side during their 3-2 win over Aston Villa .

But it was on a nervous day for Jose Mourinho [Dezijdeevan that was made to work hard for their victory after a resilient display by the Dean Smith team, especially in the second half.

After scoring in the first half, the South Korean was thwarted three times in the second half by an on-song Pepe Reina, before using a Bjorn English foul during a stopping time.

After what was a hectic game of football, Son did an interview with a member of the Tottenham media team.

Mourinho interrupted the interview and asked: & # 39; Are you talking about the goals he scored or the goals he missed? & # 39;

Son saw the funny side of Mourinho's humor as he laughed while his manager walked away and then continued the interview.

It was the day of redemption stories at Villa Park, as Toby Alde rweireld scored his own goal to give Villa the lead before he hit a thunderous shot past Reina to level the competition.

It was the same for Son who acted to take a penalty after Engels took down his new teammate Steven Bergwijn – only to miss and tap into the rebound.

Engels compensated his mistake on the way to an equalizer and the South Korean attacker could regretly look back on this match after he had failed to defeat the experienced Reina three times.

But Engels went from zero to hero and back to zero when he couldn't control a ball rolling past him and Son scored past Reina in one on one situation to give his game the three points.

Son has now scored six goals in five games, and although he was Tottenham & # 39; s savior on Sunday, Mourinho will hope that his attacker can continue his rich vein of form while pursuing the Champions League spot.

Arsenal reconsidering transfer options after hitting a wall in attempts to land Kieran Tierney


The move from Arsenal to Kieran Tierney hits a wall with Gunners who do not want to meet Celtic's £ 25m valuation after seeing several bids rejected

  • Arsenal had several offers for Celtic full back Kieran Tierney rejected
  • Gunners want to spread payments, since Celtic wants more money in advance
  • The London club now weighs on others goals ]

Arsenal are starting to reconsider their transfer options after hitting a wall in their attempts to land Kieran Tierney.

Arsenal has made several bids for the 25-year-old 22-year-old from Celtic going south, rejected.

The Gunners want to spread payments, since Celtic wants to guarantee more money in advance and promised less in future add-ons, with those that have been considered unrealistic by the Scottish giants.

Arsenal is now considering whether they are better served to strengthen other divisions of their squad than allocating more of their £ 45m budget to a new movement for Tierney.

They already have Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac as left-back options and also need a center-back, midfielder and winger.

William Saliba of St. Etienne must have his medical service Tuesday for a switch of £ 27m, but the 18-year-old defender is borrowed back to the French club for the season, leavin g Arsenal still on the market for a senior center that can come in immediately.

They are confident that they are entering into a loan agreement for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and remain interested in Wilfried Zaha despite his high price tag.

Meanwhile, Arsenal leaders will have more talks with Captain Laurent Koscielny to try and resolve his situation after their return from their pre-season tour through America.

Defender Koscielny, 33, went on strike and refused to travel if he wants to leave freely, despite being on his deal for another year.

Bordeaux wants Kosc ielny, but Rennes has ruled out a move.

Chelsea 6-1 Bristol City: Blues demolished Robins in Emma Hayes' 200th game and hit top form before crunch collision with WSL leaders Arsenal

  • Doubles from Bethany England Ji So-yun saw the blues coming from behind

  • Ebony Salmon gave Bristol an early lead but they could not cause any shock
  • Chelsea is next to leader Arsenal and has taken shape just in time

Chelsea demolished Bristol City for pressure to enlarge the title race in a relentless view to mark Emma Hayes' 200th leadership

Although the visitors were initially on track to hand out their second upset in a week, it hopes to leave their season revived, at least today, were muted quickly.

After having struggled to get hold of the ball for much of the first 15 minutes, Bristol City took the lead via Ebony Salmon against the run of the game. The in-form 18 year old, released by Manchester United final term after a series of injuries struggled, locked on a loose ball in the box and shot a right attempt in the bottom corner of Ann-Katrin Berger & # 39 ; s net.

Ch elsea desperately looked for an equalizer, Bethany, England, she has done this so many times Eason, came to their aid – although she could have had a hat trick, and some more. Sophie Ingle chose the lioness striker with a looping ball in the box that bravely headed the ball into the back of the net, despite Sophie Baggaley's best attempts to hurry and gather.

But just as the side of Tanya Oxtoby seemed to find their rhythm, despite forced to unwavering pressure, Chelsea raised the heat.

Hannah Blundell, introduced as one of three changes to the side beat Reading last weekend, earned a place on the score sheet for the first time in a year, Chelsea's lead doubled shortly before the break. After receiving the ball on the edge of the box and cutting it in from the right, Blundell pulled the trigger – helpless Baggaley hit by the deflection.

By a blow in the penalty area, Chelsea added a third via Jess Carter – her first goal since arriving in Birmingham 2018 in June 2018. In a hectic end to the half, Ji So-Yun apparently tied the runs and added goal number four with a low stroke about 20 meters from distance.

With the bit tight between their teeth, Hayes & # 39; s side started the second half as much as they finished the first, only now with the addition of Sam Kerr, for her second appearance since arriving in the winter transfer window. In combination with the Australian striker, Guro Reiten set up the fifth – her perfectly timed delivery with the simplest tap-ins to see Ji claim her second of the afternoon.

But while the targets continue to consist of Kerr, England headed into Chelsea & # 39; s sixth in the back, this time Jonna Andersson proved the provider. Another brutal defeat for a side of Bristol City who undoubtedly felt that dejà vu would leave Kingsmeadow.

Yaya Toure slams Mesut Ozil for hitting out at China’s treatment of Muslim Uighurs


& # 39; Footballers should stay with football and politicians should stay with politics because it will cause many problems … I think he was wrong to say that & # 39 ;: Yaya Toure denies Mesut Özil for beating on the Chinese treatment of Muslim Uighurs

Arsenal forward Mesut Ozil should not have speak to expose human rights in China formerly Barcelona and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure said Tuesday, fresh from a short stint in the

Toure said that discussing the mass detention on Uighurs and others & # 39; complicated & # 39; is because he and Özil are both Muslims, but the Arsenal midfielder approached differently than whether athletes should use their platforms to be political

& # 39; Footballers must stay with politics and politicians stay because you are not with this kind things can be involved because it will attract many problems and many things, "Toure said in an interview with the accompanying press. & # 39; As a Muslim it is complicated and it is his choice. He made his comments, but I think he was wrong to say so. & # 39;

<p> <noscript> <img id=] Yaya Toure criticized Mesut Özil for he spoke about the Chinese treatment of Muslim Uighurs

Last week's criticism of Ozil's action against Muslims in Xinjiang led to the Arsenal game being pulled out of Chinese television. The Chinese government accused Özil of being blinded and misled & # 39; before he protested against mass arrests and closure of mosques in the northwest region.

A politician who weighed in to support Ozil was US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

& # 39; China & Communist Party propaganda outings can censor the entire season (Ozil) and the Arsenal games, but the truth will prevail & Pompeo wrote on Tuesday his Twitter account from the US government. "The CCP cannot hide its gross #HumanRightsviolations committed against Uyghurs and other religious beliefs of the world."

Toure, a former Ivory Coast international, has just played for five months at the Chinese second-class club Qingdao Huanghai. Toure & # 39; s comments on Ozil reflect the attitude of Arsenal, who said it & # 39; adheres to the principle of not being involved in politics. & # 39;

& # 39; I always love football, & # 39; said Toure during a trip to Qatar with FIFA for the Club World Cup, & # 39; therefore I sometimes do not want to be political. & # 39;

Secret documents reported by the AP last month showed that the Chinese government used mass surveillance and an integrated computer system to target pious Muslims and Uighurs who traveled abroad for detention in internment camps.

China has been accused of detaining more than one million Uyghurs and other minorities in Xinjiang and subjecting them to torture, beatings and food shortages. The documents showed that they were forced to learn Mandarin and Communist ideology.

After a tricky start to life at Everton, now Yerry Mina is hitting all the right notes 


Yerry Mina hastily grabs his iPhone grinning from ear to ear, it becomes clear that we are about to be a scoop.

Premier League footballers can be reluctant to open during interviews, but there are no worries with Mina. Those who work with Everton's imposing central defender daily like to say he & # 39; full of fun & # 39; and that description is about to be confirmed.

& # 39; Bueno! Bueno! & # 39; Mina says excitedly. & # 39; One moment, friend … & # 39; Our conversation has taken an unexpected turn. We have moved from discussing Lionel Messi his old Barcelona teammate, to initiation ceremonies. Tradition dictates that Everton signing sessions have to sing for their new colleagues, but Mina had to miss an adherent meal 14 months ago and never had the chance.

& Honest singing is g a problem & # 39 ;, he says, with the help of an interpreter. Then he breaks in English: & # 39; I'll show you & # 39;

The strange silence in the room while mine is tapping is suddenly broken by the first bars of an old rock classic. While the Colombian starts clicking on his fingers and bumping his head, it appears that Creedence Clearwater Revival, the American rock band in the late sixties and seventies, is helping him learn.

& # 39; Someone told me long ago .. & # 39; Mina starts concentrating on the texts that come up in front of his screen. & # 39; There is calm before the storm … I KNOW! It has been coming for a while! Woo! I know! Have you ever seen the rain! & # 39;

Earlier that morning, it appeared that the dressing room of the Finch Farm had received a spontaneous rendition of the same song. Mina thinks he had listened to it eight or ten times during his drive to work and Fabian Delph was so impressed that he wanted to film him. He communicates all this with a radiant smile.

There is something refreshing about being in the company of Mina. Everton & # 39; s start to the season is terribly inconsistent and they are competing this week with Tottenham, who is looking anxiously over their shoulders. This expensive project appears to be less than the sum of its parts.

The seriousness of the situation is not lost with the 25-year-old. He takes the responsibility to change Everton & # 39; s fortune seriously and speaks with love for El Professor – Marco Silva – the manager who brought him to Merseyside in August 2018, but whose future remains in Peril.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Mina got the attention of clubs in England while playing at the back for Barcelona

The situation is e However, not completely gloomy and fortunes can quickly change in football. Mina experienced real adversity as a child growing up in Guachene, a city in western Colombia that he says is & difficult to get out & # 39; was – overcoming the odds has been a theme of his life.

& # 39; We say in Colombia: you leave your skin on the field – don't leave anything outside & he says. & # 39; I prefer to look into the future step by step. I constantly try to improve myself. I look at myself, I see the mistakes I make and I want to get better and remove them from my game.

& # 39; At this moment it is important to present a united front. We always talk together. We have to improve. It's like a big family here – I am so glad I made the choice to come. I can't explain how happy I am that my teammates had it when I tried to settle down. & # 39;

Here is a point of honesty. Mina knows that his first 12 months on Merseyside were not what they should have been. He arrived like the giant in the four backs of Bolster, with a £ 30 million price tag and memories of an impressive battle with Harry Kane and three goals, including one against England, fresh in memory at the World Cup.

But he also arrived injured and fitness was difficult to achieve. When Mina appeared, he didn't always convince. Slowly, however, he reached the right levels and a breakthrough of the Carabao Cup defeat of Watford on Tuesday, when he won a flurry of headers and tackles, was greeted with noisy acclaim.

& # 39; Everyone has set it up with me all this time! & # 39; he explains. & # 39; I will give everything I have for these people. I will show my gratitude every time. I leave it all for them. I try not to be influenced by things, even when going through difficult times.

]

& # 39; It was very difficult last year. It is easy to be happy when you are at a good time. It is when the bad times come that it is a bit harder. When you have that frustration and sadness and things bring you down, it is important to keep that good spirit.

& # 39; I am so grateful for the role that our physio player Danny Donachie played. It was a difficult start, difficult and complicated with four or five injuries, one after the other. They were injuries that you could not explain, all in the same area around my foot. But Danny was always there to help me.

It is almost as if God has given me a path. It was a fun process, a series of events that I experienced in my life. You should go to my village to understand how difficult it is in Colombia. You draw on those experiences. It makes you want to succeed. & # 39;

There may have been a hangover from Barcelona; he moved there from Palmeiras in January 2018 and became the first Colombian to play for the club. He describes Messi as & # 39; so & # 39; n great guy & # 39; for trying to help him settle down, but within eight months he was sold to Everton.

& # 39; It was a difficult time, but again, it is like God is testing you & # 39 ;, he says. & # 39; I came out and had a fantastic time at the World Cup. It made me really happy!

& # 39; But then the injury came and it was tough. You are being tested by the Lord. Now I feel good about myself. I feel strong, confident. It is almost as if God makes up for those two bad years. & # 39;

Tax clampdown hitting football agents amid HMRC’s investigation


Tax dependence hits football agents in the midst of HMRC's investigation of & # 39; serious allegations & # 39; of fraud

  • Number of investigated football agents for tax issues has doubled in six months
  • HMRC probe on tax matters, including duties and transfer costs
  • A total of 62 agents were actively investigated compared to 38 in March

The number of soccer brokers investigated about tax issues by HMRC is the almost doubled in the last six months.

Figures obtained by Sportsmail show that the number of agents being actively investigated is now 62, compared to 38 in March, while 50 more players and nine more clubs have been investigated.

HMRC & # 39; s investigation into tax matters, including image rights, transfers and agent fees, has raised £ 371 million in four years.

 The number of soccer players investigated by HMRC due to tax issues has almost doubled "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= The number of football brokers investigated by HMRC on tax issues has almost doubled

In March A letter was sent to 1,900 football agents to warn them of possible tax investigations and that their tax returns would be closely monitored after & # 39; serious allegations & # 39; of fraud.

At that time, HMRC – which has previously raided both the Newcastle and West Ham offices – revealed that 38 agents, 40 clubs and 173 players were involved in their investigation.

Now that figure has grown in all three areas, with figures released for Sportsmail under the Freedom of In formation law showing that they are now investigating 62 agents, 49 clubs and 223 players.

Dual representation in player transfers – where agents represent both player and club – remains a topic of discussion and a series of recommendations have been agreed by Premier League clubs at a meeting earlier this year.

However, this was not final, because FIFA is developing new proposals for global regulation.

A spokesperson for HMRC said: & # 39; The vast majority of UK taxpayers pay what is due and it is our role to create a level playing on their behalf.

& # 39; Since 2015, we have brought in £ 371 million from the football industry that would otherwise have remained unpaid.

& # 39; HMRC is currently investigating the tax matters of 223 players, 49 clubs and 62 agents on various topics, including image rights. The number of investigations into clubs, players and agents changes during the year as we open and close new investigations. & # 39;
