Josip Skoko sat down with ESPN FC to pick the Best XI among the Socceroos he has lined up alongside.

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.

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.

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...
