    Moyes charged by FA over 'slap' comments

    David Moyes will face a charge over comments made after Sunderland's fixture with Burnley on March 18, the FA has confirmed. The former Manchester United boss was caught on film telling BBC report Vicki Sparks that he might "slap" her if she asked questions he deemed to be too probing in their next interview.   In a statement, the FA said: "David Moyes has been charged in relation to comments made after the game against Burnley on 18 March 2017. "It is alleged the Sunderland manager’s remarks were improper and/or threatening and/or brought the game into disrepute, contrary to FA Rule E3(1).  "He has until 6pm on 3 May 2017 to reply to the charge." Speaking to Sparks after her interview concluded following the scoreless draw, Moyes said: "It was getting a wee bit naughty at the end there so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap, even though you're a woman. "Careful the next time you come in." Once the statement was made public, the Scotsman was quick to retract his quotes, explaining at his next press conference: "It was in the heat of the moment. "I deeply regret the comments I made. It's certainly not the person I am and I accept it was a mistake. "I've spoken to the BBC reporter who accepted my apology and hopefully we can now move on." The FA charge is just the latest headache for the Sunderland boss, whose side appear destined for the Championship next season as they lie 12 points short of safety with only six matches remaining. The Stadium of Light outfit have not won a league fixture since February 4 and have picked up maximum points on only five occasions this term. Last weekend, they drew 2-2 with West Ham and on Wednesday they visit Middlesbrough for a derby fixture that they have to win to keep their survival chances alive.

    ‘I’d prefer to die than play for Paris Saint-Germain’ – Gignac

    France international striker Andre-Pierre Gignac says that he “would rather die than sign with” Paris Saint-Germain. Herrera as good as Kante The 31-year-old is a huge fan of PSG’s rivals Marseille, where he played for five seasons before moving to Tigres, his current side, in Mexico during the summer of 2015. If the attacker, who hit the post in the final of Euro 2016 with France still locked 0-0 with Portugal, was offered the chance to return to his homeland, he would not even consider a move to the Parc des Princes. “I hate PSG – I’d rather die than sign with them,” he told Life and Style. “If PSG offered me 10 times more money, I would not go there.” Gignac has revealed his joy when the Parisians were knocked out of the Champions League at the hands of Barcelona, conceding three goals in the final minutes to embarrassingly limp out of the competition 6-5 on aggregate, having held a 4-0 lead after the first leg. “You’ve got no idea how I shouted at Barcelona’s sixth goal in the Champions League,” he added. “I screamed, ran, everything. My wife was even a little scared!” Since moving to Mexico, Gignac has maintained a fine scoring ratio and boasts 15 goals in 32 matches so far this season.

    Real Madrid star James wants to stay put despite reported Premier League interest, says wife

    James Rodriguez is happy at Real Madrid and wants to remain in the Spanish capital, according to the midfielder's wife Daniela Ospina. Manchester United and Chelsea have emerged as possible destinations for James, who has found regular minutes hard to come by under Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane. James - who came off the bench and netted the equaliser in Sunday's Clasico only for Barcelona's Lionel Messi score an injury-time winner - has made 17 LaLiga appearances this season but only nine have been as a starter, adding to the 25-year-old's frustrations at the Santiago Bernabeu. Man United star Herrera as good as Kante Despite the situation, James is keen to continue at the Champions League titleholders. "James is very focused, it is a very personal decision," Ospina said via AS Diario and Marca. "He is happy, but when he has to make the decision, he will do so. "I cannot promise anything, but James wants to continue with Real Madrid and I love Madrid too, I am really happy in Spain and I want to stay here. "He is super happy, always working and trying to improve himself, to do what he has to do. "Obviously I want him to play more, to say that wouldn't be a lie." James and Madrid are away to Deportivo La Coruna on Wednesday as they look to wrestle top spot back from bitter rivals Barca.
