TOP STORY: Spurs chase 'new Hazard'

After the emergence of Erik Lamela on top of the standout performances of Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane, one would think that Tottenham are well stocked with young attacking players. While that may be true, too much is never enough when it comes to such a commodity.

That's why it's little surprise...

Liverpool still attract top managers keen to return club to glory days

The ESPN FC crew discuss how Jurgen Klopp would fit in at Anfield.

Only the timing of Brendan Rodgers' sacking as manager of Liverpool was a surprise. The act itself was entirely predictable.

What followed next was also predictable. A number of people who had been demanding his removal suddenly started feeling guilty. No one likes to see a man lose his job, no matter how well-compensated he'll be or how much of a mess he was making of it.

The arguments flow back and forth about what part Rodgers played in the title bid of 2013-14, how unfair it was to deny him...

Antoine Griezmann's struggles against big clubs a concern for Atletico Madrid

From Sevilla manager's first victory over FC Barcelona to the La Liga record for penalties conceded in the Madrid derby, here's 5 things you didn't know about this week's La Liga action.

Sunday's 1-1 Madrid derby draw helped Atletico Madrid end a bad week on a positive note after disappointing consecutive defeats to Villarreal and Benfica. For manager Diego Simeone, there will be plenty of positives to take from his side's display, especially the way they rallied in the second period to almost take all three points.

Big money summer arrivals Yannick Carrasco, who was a real live wire after coming on at the break, Jackson Martinez and Luciano Vietto all combined for the equaliser...

Benitez's man management skills at Real Madrid under fire after Atleti draw

ESPNFC's Alejandro Moreno says Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez's tactics may not be suited to the Bernabeu.

By their own nature and the passions they exacerbate, derbies are high-risk, high-reward matters, with huge potential consequences for clubs, players and especially coaches who depend on their outcome.

A resounding victory can buy a decent amount of time for most under-fire managers, while an ignominious defeat can cast a shadow of concern over well-performing ones. For instance, many sources at Real Madrid state that former coach Carlo Ancelotti started to lose his job after the 4-0 thrashing of...

Colombia facing questions in World Cup qualifying opener vs. Peru

After squaring off in the Copa America over the summer, Colombia clash with Peru to open CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
After squaring off in the Copa America over the summer, Colombia clash with Peru to open CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

In the last campaign it was 2-0; 1-0 the time before that and 5-0 in the previous campaign. Playing at home to Peru is usually three points in the bank for Colombia in World Cup qualifying. In addition to the appalling away record of the Peruvians (who have not won a qualifier on the road for 11 years) there is the sapping heat of Barranquilla, on the Caribbean coast, where you can work up a sweat sitting in the shade sipping a fruit juice. Colombia normally use the conditions well, and this time...
