Monday 22:44 GMT

Saudi Arabia on Sunday denied reports that its crown prince was bidding to acquire the famed Manchester United soccer club, suggesting it’s all been a misunderstanding.

In October, the Sun first reported that the crown prince, who’s often referred to by his initials, MBS, was in talks to buy the English Premier League club for more than $3.8 billion, though that was apparently shelved amid backlash to Saudi Arabia following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Monday 09:53 GMT

Session at West Ham and taking a bit of heat from someone in the audience who seemed to suspect they might have taken their reputation as a family club a little too far.

Or some of the other relationships that have made sure, when it comes to all the different branches of football’s family tree, that the entitled apple doesn’t fall far from the entitled apple orchard.
