The Wyckoff, N.J., native was the face of Rutgers from 2001-11, when he took one of the country's worst program to some of its best seasons in history, including six bowl games in his final seven years in Piscataway. This will mark the first significant hire for Currie, who arrived in February. At the time, Currie was at Kansas State managing the potential departure of Bill Snyder as head coach, which allowed him to treat almost every year like he was going through a coaching search.

Mr Ball asked. "Come on". "The President of the United States did not go visit his son in jail, so therefore, he's not going to say thank you", he added, explaining Ball's criticism. The series gives you a pretty clear look at why LaVar has driven sports commentators insane (and now Trump as well), and why he just might be justified in all his yapping: his sons (Lonzo, Gelo, and Melo) are pretty damn good at basketball.

On Thursday, Wenger insisted he "completely" trusts Lacazette despite omitting him for two of the biggest games of the campaign. Cazorla has been limited to just 129 appearances for Arsenal since joining from Malaga in 2012. And speaking today, boss Wenger did little to entirely quash the prospect of Cazorla never playing again - while labelling his injury the most horrific he has seen, even worse than Aaron Ramsey's leg break.

This is a team with bags of quality in all areas of the pitch and the likes of Nainggolan and Manolas will ensure that this side goes deep into the tournament.

The centre-forward created Anthony Martial's 81st-minute victor and Mourinho also pointed to how the Belgian was hard for Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen to deal with.
