Manchester United contact Ernesto Valverde for interim manager job, per report

While Manchester United has zeroed in on their top candidate for their managerial vacancy in Mauricio Pochettino, where they would move if they can't get him is anyone's guess. It has already been reported that Pochettino might be available for a price but being under contract until 2023, that price is hefty.

This season and next. I am happy with PSG. It is a fact. It is not up for debate. I am happy in Paris."

Football looks different from where Ernesto Valverde is. “The idea was to change the focus,” he says, which he always has. This week a photographic exhibition opened at the Ernest Lluch Kulturetxea in San Sebastián. Made up of black and white images in 1m x 1.50m, on linoleum and bolted to the wall to give an industrial, uncomfortable feel befitting the world it captures, the collection offers a portrait of the game from the other side through the lens of the former Barcelona manager.
