    John Brooks sidelined with hip muscle injury

    Chicharito reveals toughest defenders, dream dinner companions in Twitter Q&A

    Mexico and Bayer Leverkusen forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez spent much of his Tuesday interacting with fans on Twitter, conducting an impromptu question-and-answer session and making many of their days by sending greetings to a number of fans. Red-hot Fabian boosts El Tri's depth In the course of the session, the forward selected PSG's Thiago Silva, former Barcelona center back Carles Puyol and Juventus' Giorgio Chiellini as the most difficult defenders he's ever come up against while playing. But the 28-year-old generally stayed away from discussing the beautiful game, putting just two soccer superstars in his "Magnificent Seven" of dining companions: Brazil great Ronaldo and U.S. women's national team star Alex Morgan. He also listed NBA legend Michael Jordan, tennis champions Roger Federer and Steffi Graf and retired NFL superstars Ray Lewis and Jerry Rice.  His selections for doing a dinner with Mexican athletes also showed a diversity of sport, with legendary forward Hugo Sanchez the first name on his list but boxer Julio Cesar Chavez, top racquetball player Paola Longoria, golfer Lorena Ochoa, former track star (and current senator) Ana Gabriela Guevara, Formula 1 driver Sergio 'Checo' Perez and former MLB pitcher Fernando Valenzuela rounding out his top seven. The forward made clear that while NFL superstar J.J. Watt wasn't in his dinner party, part of the reason for his omission is that he'd already been able to meet and spend time with the Houston Texans defensive end. The die-hard Raiders fan stayed true to his colors when the topic turned to American football, naming Raiders quarterback Derek Carr as his favorite player, along with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Watt himself. Five Things from Liga MX J15 He also said he hopes the rumors of running back Marshawn Lynch coming out of retirement to join the Raiders end up being true. The forward later signed off, thanking everyone for their messages of support. He returns to the field Friday with Bayer Leverkusen hosting Schalke in Bundesliga play. Chicharito had missed the last several matches with the struggling side because of injury but was fit to start Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Freiburg.

    Schweinsteiger has no regrets over Manchester United move

    Bastian Schweinsteiger insists he does not regret his decision to leave Bayern Munich for Manchester United. The former Germany international made the move to Old Trafford in 2015 but failed to live up to high expectations in the Premier League. He featured regularly in his first season under Louis van Gaal, before falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho and eventually leaving for Chicago Fire in March. Pogba may regret leaving Juventus However, Schweinsteiger still stands by his decision to try his luck abroad. "My move from Bayern to Manchester was the right one," the 32-year-old told Sport1. "I always had the goal to win the Champions League with Bayern Munich. That is why I always stayed put and never moved abroad. I then achieved my goal in 2013. "The step to Manchester was very important. Van Gaal called me and wanted quick success. Things went very well at first, we sat at the top of the table and were level on points with Leicester. But then I got suspended and later on I suffered an injury. "And we still won the FA Cup in the end. It's not like that was an easy achievement. "Of course, I was surprised when Mourinho dropped me to the reserves, but I always remained hopeful that the situation would change and that I would play for Manchester again. And I did just that in the end."

    Real Madrid and Liverpool flop Sahin signs new Borussia Dortmund deal

    Former Real Madrid and Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin has extended his contract at Borussia Dortmund until 2019. Bale ruled out of Atleti semi The Turkey international, 28, left Signal Iduna Park for Real Madrid in 2011 for €10 million but failed to break into the Spanish giants' first team. Following an unimpressive half-season at Anfield in 2012-13 he returned to Dortmund on loan before making his move permanent in 2014. Since returning to the Bundesliga side, he has been beset by a variety of injury problems that have limited his game time, but that has not stopped BVB from offering him a new deal. "Everybody knows I feel good at Dortmund - in town, in the stadium and of course with our fans," Sahin told the club's official website. "Borussia Dortmund is the club of my heart." Sahin has only played eight times for Thomas Tuchel's side this season, having suffered from a knee injury sustained during a 4-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in December. He made his return to action in the Bundesliga in early April and featured from the outset of both legs as BVB were eliminated from the Champions League by Monaco 6-3 on aggregate at the quarter-final stage.

    Alexis would be a good signing for Bayern – Matthaus

    Lothar Matthaus feels Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez would be an excellent addition for Bayern Munich amid suggestions the Bundesliga champions are pondering a swoop for the Chile international. Xavi tips City to make mega Alli move Alexis' contract with Arsenal expires in June 2018 and talks over a new deal have been put on hold until the end of the season after both parties failed to reach an agreement. Arsene Wenger remains hopeful Alexis will stay at Emirates Stadium, but clubs such as Bayern and Chelsea are reportedly keeping a close eye on the 28-year-old's situation. Goal also understands Manchester City have made Alexis one of their primary summer targets, alongside Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci. "Sanchez is a great player, he would be a good signing for Bayern," Matthaus told AZ. "His biggest pro is that he can play in a central role up front and on the wings.” Hazard: No Chelsea renewal for now The potential arrival of Sanchez would be bad news for Douglas Costa, but Matthaus is not convinced the Brazil international has what it takes to play for Bayern following a string of underwhelming performances this campaign. "Costa is no longer the player he was when he just started at Bayern," he added. "Plus I do not like it that he has been hinting at a transfer in a number of interviews. That is not good for him, nor for Bayern. "I think the club would not stop him from leaving if they bring in another attacker."
