Barcelona midfielder Rafinha has defended Neymar in the wake of criticism for his role in a late game incident between Barca players and Valencia fans in the Blaugrana's 3-2 away win on Saturday.

Stewart Robson feels Jose Mourinho must return to the basics and get back to what made him a successful manager.

Luke Shaw wants to earn Jose Mourinho's trust and help Manchester United kick on up the table.

For a player that enjoyed such a smooth ascent from Southampton to England and Old Trafford, the 21-year-old has endured some tough moments with United.

An eye-opening first season was followed by a superb start to his second campaign, only for a horrific double leg break to bring that to an abrupt end last September.
