On The Record

“It’s embarrassing. I was in a squad that went in the Europa League — it’s an embarrassment. You don’t want to come out of your house. You don’t want to walk around Manchester, people looking at you and thinking you’re not good enough, questioning you as an individual.”

The Fixture List

  • The Europa League group stages conclude on Thursday with Liverpool away to FC Sion (6pm), Celtic in Turkey to face Fenerbahce (6pm) and Tottenham welcoming Monaco to the Lane (8.05pm).
  • In the European Challenge Cup, there are two fixtures with Worcester hosting Gloucester and Agen taking on Grenoble (both 7.45pm).
