Bubbly Leicester send crisis-stricken Manchester team home with a 4-2 defeat


Football. Leicester and Manchester United delivered a terrific match in the Premier League. The events wavered back and forth and eventually ended as the pure shooting tent and with a 4-2 victory for the home team. United put themselves ahead 1-0 on a fine long-range goal by Mason Greenwood, but Yuri Tielemans equalized after a mistake by Harry Maguire before the break. In the second half, not much happened initially, but then the events exploded in the last quarter, where Leicester became very goal-seeking. Caglar Söyüncü brought the home side to 2-1, but just minutes later the substitute Marcus Rashford equalized when he was served a free-kick. Leicester had momentum, however, and veteran Jamie Vardy was able to make it 3-2 the minute after Rashford’s equalizer before Patson Daka in the referee’s overtime made it 4-2. Almost as spectacular as the events on the pitch were Manchester’s decision to take the 160-kilometer journey to Leicester by plane. It took 10 minutes and was due, according to Manchester, to reports of traffic problems on the motorway.

Football. The Danish government is against a closed league for several of the best clubs in Europe. The government has therefore sent a statement to the European Court of Justice, which is in the process of hearing a case about the so-called European Super League. Although nine of the 12 founding clubs in the European Super League quickly withdrew, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus are still working to create a breakaway league. Minister of Culture Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen (S) believes that a closed league is a threat to the sport. “As Minister of Culture, I do not want to watch while the richest clubs in the world create exclusive leagues that put our common sporting values ​​out of control. That is why we as a government are now entering into this matter, “says Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen according to Ritzau in a press release from the Ministry of Culture.

“It is absolutely central that football clubs in Europe have the opportunity to compete on an equal footing, so that even the smallest club can strive to fight its way up and beat the big ones. Those kinds of hopes and dreams are extinguished with closed tournaments like the European Super League. Therefore, we must safeguard the sporting values ​​that give access to small, Danish clubs can surprise in Europe and ensure that grassroots football thrives, “she says in the press release.
