Mercedes boss Toto Wolff (pictured, centre, at today's unveiling of the new Mercedes with drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas) does not like the car his team are set to use in the new F1 season. Hamilton helped launch the W09, which features a cockpit halo to protect the driver, today. While the halo will improve driver safety by acting as a crass barrier, director Wolff branded it ugly at the Silverstone launch.
'I'm one of the greatest minds in football': Campbell claims clubs are scared of hiring him after Oxford snub
Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has suggested clubs are scared of hiring 'one of the greatest minds in football' after missing out on the Oxford job. Campbell, a former England international defender, was one of the candidates that spoke to Oxford about replacing former boss Pep Clotet, but they are expected to turn to Craig Bellamy. Bellamy has been coaching at Cardiff City, while Campbell has little experience of working with footballers following his retirement, aside from a stint as Trinidad and Tobago assistant coach.
PICTURED: The moment Mourinho briefs axed Pogba with tactical dossier... including his position for 'defensive lateral free-kick'
Paul Pogba's struggles were highlighted on Wednesday night as pictures emerged of Jose Mourinho giving him detailed tactical instructions before sending him on in the goalless draw with Sevilla. A chastening few weeks for the French midfielder culminated in him being left on the bench for the Champions League stalemate in the south of Spain. But he was offered a reprieve just 17 minutes into the game as Ander Herrera was forced off the pitch with a hamstring injury.
Bleary-eyed Manchester United players arrive home at 3am after taking upper hand in Champions League with stalemate
Manchester United players arrived home a little bleary eyed after travelling back to the UK overnight after their draw with Sevilla. Jose Mourinho's men arrived back at Manchester airport around 3am after holding their Spanish opponents to a 0-0 draw, giving them the upper hand in the last-16 tie. They had David de Gea to thank for keeping Sevilla at bay, the Spanish No 1 producing a sensational stop to keep out Luis Muriel's first-half header.
Disappointing, but no disaster. Mourinho, of all people, knows the value of nights like this... MARTIN SAMUEL's verdict as De Gea shines to give Manchester United slender advantage in Champions League
MARTIN SAMUEL AT THE RAMON SANCHEZ PIZJUAN STADIUM: No, it most certainly wasn’t vintage Manchester United in Europe. Sevilla dominated, Sevilla should have won. There were precious few chances for the visitors and no away goal. After the fireworks of recent English sorties it was without doubt underwhelming. And yet, they soaked it up, came away with a draw, and will fancy their chances at home. So this was a good night for Manchester United, in many ways. A clean sheet, the beginning of the rehabilitation of Paul Pogba, who came on as a 17th minute substitute and improved the team, another furiously energetic display from Alexis Sanchez. This was never going to be the sort of game that the English team wins by four or five away goals. Sevilla are much better than Basle or Porto. Between them, these two clubs have won the last four Europa League finals, Sevilla accounting for three of them. They know what they are about at the European knockout stages.
'Can I hug you? Thank you, that's a question': United boss Mourinho's loved-up moment with TV reporter after being asked about McTominay... rather than Pogba!
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho - being interviewed by BT Sport's Des Kelly - was keen to talk about McTominay's display, rather than the fact that he took the place of £89m midfielder Paul Pogba, who started on the bench.

'No sun... just rain, pain and sand grains': Joshua digs deep in the pit as he prepares for heavyweight showdown with Parker
Anthony Joshua has the fame and the fortune required to train anywhere in the world, but he has chosen to continue his preparations in dreary old England as the winter takes one last sharp bite. With the mercury plunging, it would have been no surprise to see the heavyweight champion of the world head to warmer climes in this final month before he faces Joseph Parker. But he remains in place at his Sheffield training camp and posted a picture of his latest sparring session, which took place in a sand pit of all places. Far from a tropical beach, Joshua appeared to revel in the bleak conditions.
Firing out lyrics that have 'too much Klaas like Dave', Bolasie freestyles about 16 of his Everton team-mates
Everton were just glad to get Yannick Bolasie back on the pitch after his extended absence through injury. The Congolese winger has provided skills and drive on the flank since he returned from his horrific cruciate ligament injury in December at the end of last year. But it seems as though Bolasie's presence will also be a positive for the dressing room at Goodison Park.
England stars put through gruelling weight-training ahead of Six Nations clash against Scotland on Saturday
England face arguably their toughest task of this season's NatWest 6 Nations on Saturday, and Eddie Jones is taking no chances when it comes to ensuring his side are ready. The Six Nations holders travel to Edinburgh this weekend to face Scotland at Murrayfield, with their sights still firmly set on the Grand Slam. However, they are likely to face a stern test against the Auld Enemy, with the Scots having won each of their last five Six Nations clashes at home, with New Zealand the only side to have won there since 2016.
SIR CLIVE WOODWARD: I see Gregor Townsend as the Glenn Hoddle of British rugby union. Hoddle was an incredibly gifted player who was ahead of his time in many ways. He then set about transforming the misfiring England team when he became manager. He was the perfect role model as coach because he saw the bigger picture in terms of skills needed and players required to make England a force at international level. He had the respect of the players for what he’d achieved during his own career and had the added benefit of being English!

Willian the great! Chelsea star delivered his finest display on the big stage… after years of being in and out of the team, he is finally proving key to Conte
After hitting the woodwork twice against Barcelona, the third time really was the charm for Willian. To finally get his goal on Tuesday, he used the same trademark move that he has practised to perfection at Chelsea's Cobham training ground. Willian received the ball outside of the box, paused, accelerated to the right then put it past a static Marc-Andre ter Stegen. At last, the warrior had his reward.
