Saudi Arabia broke off diplomatic relations with Qatar three years ago and their blockade of the country continues.
Ole & modest ride
Visitors to Manchester United's Costa del Sol training camp last week were surprised to see manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drive to their Marbella training field in an Audi, with assistant Mike Phelan on the passenger seat.
Solksjaer's modest mode of transport contrasted with that of executive vice-president Ed Woodward, who arrived in a driver-driven Mercedes, which probably did not incite him to his critics among the fans of United.
] Sky escapes rap rift with Celtic
Sky Sports News is unlikely to encounter any action from Ofcom after a complaint from Celtic about an inaccurately translated interview with Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, in which there was talk of an accusation of racist abuse of Celtic fans during the December Old Firm game that the Colombian international did not make.
Sportsmail has learned that the allegations of racism were only broadcast on the Sky Sports website and Ofcom is not authorized for digital output.
Mark Alford, director of Sky Sports News, met with an apology earlier this week and met the chief executive and president of Celtic this week to personally apologize for the mistranslation provided by the Morelos agent .
In an email sent to Sky Sports News staff this week, Alford criticized & sub-standard journalism & # 39; who & # 39; has humiliated our brand and journalistic reputation & # 39 ;.
Celtic responded to the controversy by banning Sky Sports News during their briefings this week and Wednesday's game against Hearts, but the channel will be present during Sunday's game in Aberdeen.
Blues rejects TV approach
Chelsea has rejected a pitch from a TV production company that wanted to make a documentary about the campaign Say No To Anti-Semitism a campaign project aimed at educating fans and employees of the club that is close to the heart of Roman Abramovich.
As part of the project, Chelsea has taken supporters to Auschwitz to inform them about the evil of anti-Semitism, which still seems to be a problem in judging the offensive songs sung by sections of the fan base.
Chelsea remains committed to the campaign, but says it does not want to publish. The club has previously rejected fly-on-the-wall documentaries such as Amazon & # 39; s All Or Nothing series, so their approach is consistent.

Danny Rose arrives at Newcastle's rehearsal area as he approaches Tottenham's exit through a lending movement
- Newcastle comes closer to signing Danny Rose on loan to Tottenham
- He fell into the Spurs pecking order and is restless in the club
- The full-back had a disagreement with Jose Mourinho about the bench
- A number of Premier League parties were interested, but the magpies won the race
Tottenham full-back Danny Rose has arrived at the training ground of Newcastle United as he approaches an exit from White Hart Lane.
Rose has been with Tottenham for the last 13 years, but had several run-ins with the club about contract disputes and famously gave a candid interview in which he criticized their transfer policy.
Steve Bruce took advantage of the uncertainty and dived for Rose for rival Premier League parties.
He has convinced Rose to go to St James & Park for Bournemouth. It will be a first loan agreement with a loan amount of £ 2 million, and they will have an option to buy it in the summer.
Rose failed to play in one of the last four games of Tottenham, with Mourinho choosing to play young center-back Japhet Tanganga out of position there.
Ryan Sessegnon was also picked for him, with Rose's future looking increasingly uncertain after the club tried to sell it in the summer.
The 29-year-old contract with Spurs expires in 2021, and he promised to remain seated and bring it down to prevent the club from getting money for him.
With the transfer deadline on the horizon, a large number of Premier League parties had shown interest. Bournemouth and Watford would both be enthusiastic about the experienced left back – who started the Champions League final in June.
Magpies boss Bruce praised Rose last week for speculation that continues to connect him with Newcastle, and he refused to exclude a deal.
& # 39; He is a quality player and a class act, the child. Whether it is possible, who knows? & # 39;
Everton seemed to have packed their game against Newcastle when Florian Lejeune took place. There were 93 minutes on the clock for his first intervention and the three points seemed to be from the Toffees.
Then Lejeune hit a bicycle kick in the back of the net before she forced the ball down the line to give Newcastle a point and break Everton hearts.
It was the kind of comeback that lives long in the memory. Sportsmail has taken a look at the other Premier League comebacks that were completed in extra time after the Newcastle effort on Tuesday …
Arsenal 4- 4 Tottenham (October 2008) – Aaron Lennon
Arsenal must have thought they had won the match when Robin van Persie reacted to Darren Bent's 67th minute goal by presenting his side 4-2.
It had already been a dramatic game, with Arsenal fighting from a goal behind the early doors to take over the game.
But they had no conflict with the spirit of Spurs in this North London derby. Although it was David Bentley's 13th minute strike that was the couple's choice, Aaron Lennon's late tap-in was the most important.
The comeback began with Jermaine Jenas who curled the ball home in the 89th minute to close the ball game with only one goal.
And with seconds on the clock during injury time, a shot from Luka Modric was deflected on the post and Lennon reacted the fastest, hitting the ball in the back of the net to spark pandemonium in the end.
