Serial winner Mourinho puts Rodgers to shame with tactics and trophies

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer weigh in on if Chelsea is the club to keep Jose Mourinho around for a long time.
Jose Mourinho outfoxed Brendan Rodgers at Anfield last season, when Liverpool threw away the league title, and the Chelsea boss' record in big games puts Rodgers' to shame.

The temptation is to look for evidence of influence, similarities and ideas passed down through managerial generations, yet while there was a time when Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers seemed master and apprentice, they now appear opposites.

That's not just because of the 21st Century enmity between Chelsea and Liverpool; nouveau-riche force and historic power.

This is the serial winner against the nearly-man. Mourinho has secured 18 major pieces of silverware, but Rodgers, 10 years his junior,...

Man United will need to replace Carrick but who should Louis Van Gaal sign?

Former PSV sporting director Frank Arnesen believes Louis van Gaal will eventually secure the Premier League title for Manchester United.
Carrick's injury has exposed a clear void in Man United's midfield, one they must permanently fill.

If he was watching the Champions League on Tuesday night, Louis Van Gaal might have felt a swell of empathy for Carlo Ancelotti. Real Madrid struggled badly without a midfield lynchpin, forcing the Italian manager to try an ill-starred experiment. It turned out defender Sergio Ramos is not an adequate replacement for Luka Modric; Real were perhaps lucky that Juventus take only a 2-1 advantage to the Bernabeu next week.

It is Modric who knits Real Madrid together and gives them balance. In many...

Inter's defensive consistency offers promise for this season and next

Inter's defensive woes this season are well documented, but goalkeeper Samir Handanovic has helped save the team.

Anyone who has trudged up the winding steps of Giuseppe Meazza this year, or even just turned on their televisions with trepidation to watch Inter Milan, has something in common. No matter what coach has been in charge of Inter, those fans have witnessed a constant reality: Defensively Inter have been a shambles, saved only by the heroics of Samir Handanovic. That is until now, as there is a shift and going on under the radar that has brought little praise but a good amount of success and it's rooted...

How former Spurs star Gary Stevens went from hero to zero in Thailand

The increasingly fleeting nature of professional football is often in contrast to the longer term loyalty of fans. That was underlined last weekend when an admirer of ex-England defender-turned-coach Gary Stevens flew 9500 kilometres to see his hero on the touchlines for Thai Premier League club Army United FC.

Little did the traveller know that former Tottenham Hotspur star Stevens had been "rested" by the club just 24 hours before Army's Saturday trip to BEC Tero Sasana.

"Rested" is the new buzzword...

Does Falcao have one more shot at Man United redemption?

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down Ashley Young's importance to Manchester United this season.
It's been a rough campaign for Falcao with only four goals and four assists in 24 Premier League appearances.

On New Year's Day, when Radamel Falcao scored his third goal for Manchester United against Stoke, there was the belief, or maybe desperate hope, that 2015 would be the year for the Colombian to shine once more.

United were third in the league, just one point ahead of fourth placed Southampton, and just three ahead of Tottenham Hotspur below them. It was clear that the battle for a spot in next season's Champions League would only intensify as the months went by, so maybe Falcao would prove his worth...

Manchester United said to be closing on Hummels, Pogba says no to PSG

Jurgen Klopp's departure from Dortmund may open the door for a number of his star players to leave too.

The rumours are gaining momentum and, in many instances, credibility. Transfer Talk has the latest news as the summer window nears...

United closing in on Hummels?

It's no secret that Manchester United have had their eye on Mats Hummels for some time, and they were given a little encouragement earlier this year. After ESPN FC was told Dortmund were open to offers back in March, the Germany centre-back confirmed that he was considering his future at the Westfalenstadion.

United's hopes...
