United manager Jose Mourinho
may not start Wayne Rooney in
the Europa League today, saying
he wants to "protect" his captain
from another media backlash if
he has a poor performance.
Rooney, who was dropped for
United s last Premier League game,
returned to training yesterday after
missing a practice session on Tues-
day because of a slight back prob-
Mourinho wanted to start
Rooney against Ukrainian side
Zorya Luhansk at Old Trafford, but
isn t so sure now after the striker s
injury-hit build-up to the match.
"With the situation that you
create for him," Mourinho told
reporters at a news conference yes-
terday, "I think really he can t afford
to have a performance that is not
"Because I m here to protect
him and not to put him in dif-
ficult situations, I have to analyze
if the best thing for him is to
start the game if he is not totally
ready for it."
Mourinho dropped Rooney for
the first time in his short tenure
for the match against Leicester on
Saturday, saying it was a tactical
decision because he wanted more
pace in the side. A day earlier,
Mourinho said Rooney hadn t been
the same player since receiving
media criticism for a display for
England in a World Cup qualifier
on September 4.
United beat Leicester 4-1 thanks
to a slick attacking display, with
players like Juan Mata and Paul
Pogba appearing more liberated
without Rooney in the team.
"Wayne s a top-class profes-
sional, top-class player, who s won
many things with Man United and
he s still got many years to go," said
United winger Jesse Lingard, who
started against Leicester. "He s an
inspirational guy and he s a leader.
"Obviously against Leicester, the
manager switched up the team,
gave it a different dynamic, and
we won the game. But with or
without him (Rooney), we re going
because we are a team and we re
going to stick together." Zlatan
Ibrahimovic will start up front for
United, with Mourinho seeing no
problem in the 34-year-old striker
playing two games in the space of
three days now he has retired from
international duty with Sweden.

player Arijan Ademi is challeng-
ing his four-year ban for doping
in the Champions League at the
Court of Arbitration for Sport.
CAS says Ademi s appeal
against UEFA will be heard on
UEFA banned the 25-year-old
Macedonia midfielder last
November after he tested positive
for the anabolic steroid stanozolol
after a 2-1 win over Arsenal.
Ademi played the full match
last September. Dinamo s win
in Zagreb stood because soccer s
anti-doping rules do not over-
turn the result if only one player
UEFA later defended the sever-
ity of the ban, saying it followed

MANCHESTER---After the acrimonious departure
of Sam Allardyce, England s national soccer team is
temporarily in the hands of a man who said just three
weeks ago that he wasn t ready for such a high pres-
Yet interim coach Gareth Southgate may end up
keeping it given the paucity of top-class English man-
The English Football Association s preference is that
an Englishman coaches the national team, but there s
hardly a queue of top-quality candidates.
Alan Pardew, Eddie Howe and Steve Bruce are high
on the list of bookmakers favourites to be the next
England coach, yet none of them have managed a so-
called big club in the Premier League or coached a
team in the Champions League. Pardew and Howe are
in charge of unfashionable Premier League clubs (Crystal
Palace and Bournemouth, respectively) and Bruce
recently quit as manager of Hull.
Glenn Hoddle, England coach from 1996-99, is also
on the bookies list and a popular call with ex-pro-
fessionals even though he hasn t coached in a decade.
So Southgate, who has been given the reins for Eng-
land s next four matches---against Malta, Slovenia,
Scotland and Spain---can stake a claim for the role on
a full-time basis should he impress as a caretaker
Except this was the same man who said as recently
as September 5 that he needed more experience to be
England manager, having coached only one club (Mid-
dlesbrough, from 2006-09) and been in charge of the
England under-21 side since 2013. Southgate pulled
out of the race to succeed Roy Hodgson after the Euro-
pean Championship for this very reason, with the job
going to Allardyce.
Less than a month later, he s been thrust into what
some term "The Impossible Job."
Clean-cut, well-spoken and with no baggage, the
46-year-old Southgate fits the bill for the FA in terms
of image. He would be the last person likely to get
caught up in the kind of newspaper sting that led to
Allardyce losing his job on Tuesday. He also knows
the FA and what the national body wants and expects,
having been an employee for three year
Bruce is the second-favorite with bookmakers, behind
Southgate, and has to be a big contender considering
he was interviewed by the FA for the job eventually
given to Allardyce. The 38-year-old Howe, who guided
unfancied Bournemouth into the Premier League and
kept it there, is widely regarded as a future England
coach but now may be too soon for him. (AP)
