DILLIAN WHYTE has ripped into Deontay Wilder’s level of opponents – claiming the reason he has a high knockout ratio is because he’s fought “a lot of cabbages”. The 31-year-old has played down the Bronze Bomber’s one-round destruction of Dominic Breazeale as he claims the WBC king is lucky and well looked after. Dillian Whyte has laid into Deontay Wilder following the Bronze Bomber’s win against Dominic Breazeale Wilder – who boasts a KO ratio of 95 per cent having stopped 40 out of his 42 opponents – has vowed to fight Anthony Joshua next, though the Body Snatcher is keen to face him. Writing for talkSPORT, Whyte said: “Plenty of people seemed to be raving about Wilder’s knockout victory over Dominic Breazeale at the weekend. “But Breazeale is exactly the kind of guy you fight when you are trying to look good. How the hell can he be number four in the WBC rankings and the mandatory challenger? What has he achieved in his career? He’s far from the top level. “He’s a nobody who only had three fights against other nobodies in the last three years and it’s a disgrace that he was mandatory. “Neither him nor Bermane Stiverne earned their status but were cherry-picked by Wilder as the only two mandatories he’s fought in four-and-a-half years. He’s meant to have at least one every year. “Stiverne was 40 years old and completely out of shape having only had one fight in three years, against a journeyman, since losing the title to Wilder.

Ryan Giggs helped advise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Manchester United’s rumoured summer move for Swansea star Daniel James, reports claim. Solskjaer allegedly sought out the opinion of his former Old Trafford team-mate, who is James’ manager at international level with Wales. Solskjaer is claimed to have spoken with Ryan Giggs about Daniel James United are negotiating a deal with Swansea over a fee for the winger, who is expected become Solskjaer’s first summer signing at a cost of around £15million. James has enjoyed an excellent season at the Liberty Stadium and caught the eye of a wider audience with a stunning performance in Swansea’s FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Manchester City. The 21-year-old has just a season left on his contract with the Championship club, and looked set to leave for Leeds United in January only for the move to collapse at the eleventh hour. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] The Yorkshire-born attacker made his debut for Wales last November, with Old Trafford legend Giggs handing him his first cap. He scored his first goal for his country on his second appearance, netting the only strike of the game in a March defeat of Slovakia, and Giggs spoke highly of the youngster in the wake of the match. He continued to praise James when approached by Solskjaer, The Mirror claim, with Giggs allegedly telling his former team-mate he has ‘no doubt’ James has the talent to make it as a Manchester United player. James is reportedly close to joining Man United in a £15million deal Giggs is claimed to have highlighted James’ off the ball work-rate as one of his biggest strengths. United have not been alone in chasing James, with new Brighton manager Graham Potter, who managed Swansea last season, said to be keen on reuniting with his former winger at the Amex.

Chelsea youngster Reece James has emerged as a summer transfer target for Brighton, according to reports. James, 19, had an outstanding season on loan at Wigan as they successfully fought off relegation from the Championship. Reece James is highly regarded at Chelsea Reece James. 19 years old. Standing ovation as he leaves the field for the last time in a Wigan Athletic shirt. Respect. #wafc #cfc pic.twitter.com/GjexjXLHW3 — Paul Kendrick (@PKendrickWIG) May 5, 2019 It proved to be an award-winning campaign for the England Under-20 international, who established himself as a real fan favourite at the DW Stadium. That has led to no shortage of interest in the right-back’s services, with the Seagulls one of the clubs vying to bring him on loan for the 2019/20 season – according to the Sun. They will face a battle to land James, who recently joined the Chelsea first-team on a post-season trip to the USA, with Manchester United and Liverpool also reportedly interested in signing him. James, 19, enjoyed an outstanding season on loan at Championship side Wigan James came up against new Brighton boss Graham Potter twice last season while he was in charge of Swansea. It will be a waiting game for Potter and co as to whether they will land James though, with Chelsea yet to ratify their summer plans following their FIFA transfer ban. Another season on loan could prove pivotal in James’ long-term development, with the possibility of regular football at Stamford Bridge next season unlikely.

STEVE McCLAREN is thankful to this day that Sir Alex Ferguson ignored his advice. Twenty years on, Manchester United’s stars recall fondly the events from the incredible night that sealed a historic Treble in 1999. United lifted the Champions League trophy to complete the unprecedented Treble in 1999 After Teddy Sheringham’s 91st-minute goal made it 1-1 in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in the Nou Camp, Fergie’s assistant McClaren recommended caution. But with extra-time moments away, the boss put McClaren in his place before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sealed a 93rd-minute win on May 26. McClaren said: “We had four attackers on. Once we scored I said to the gaffer, ‘Are we going to put ourselves into a more balanced shape? Let’s regroup, think about extra-time.’ “He just said, ‘sit down Stevie, sit down — this game isn’t over yet’. “That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen.” [quote credit=”Steve McClaren on Sir Alex Ferguson”]That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen[/quote] Sealing the Treble completed a magical 10 days for United, wrapping up the league on the final day against Tottenham before beating Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup final. Striker Sheringham was man of the match at Wembley having scored after coming off the bench early for an injured Roy Keane.

Chelsea are considering accepting a transfer ban this summer so they can add to their squad again in January, according to reports. The Blues announced earlier this month that they ‘will appeal’ against the FIFA ban, which was imposed against them back in February. Chelsea may accept the transfer ban imposed on them by FIFA in order to limit it to just one window They were expected to ask for the ban to be put on hold pending the full hearing, however The Sun understands that will now not be the case. Chelsea, who were found guilty of 29 breaches of regulations over transferring minors, are yet to contact the Lausanne-based court. After their failed appeal to FIFA earlier this month, the west London side described themselves as ‘very disappointed’ and strongly refuted the findings. In a short statement issued on Tuesday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport confirmed they are yet to receive an appeal from the Blues. Chelsea are expected to sell Eden Hazard this summer in order to keep their FFP figures in regulation It read: “At the time of writing, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has not received an appeal from Chelsea FC.” The Sun further claim that the Blues are now eyeing damage limitation in this case, with Chelsea lawyers now holding the view that FIFA’s case against them is stronger than they initially viewed it. Senior officials at the club are now hoping that by accepting the ban, FIFA will deem a transfer embargo in the main window of the season will be seen as sufficient enough punishment. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] The Blues would then be able to strengthen their squad when the window reopens in the winter, as they look to maintain their top-four spot in the Premier League. Chelsea have already handed new deals to David Luiz and Olivier Giroud, both of whom were previously expected to leave the club, with continued uncertainty regarding the club’s transfer ban. It is also likely that young stars such as Reece James and Mason Mount, both of whom have impressed on loan at Wigan and Derby respectively this season, will be part of the first-team squad next term.

FIFA has announced the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be a 32-team tournament as originally planned. World football’s governing body had toyed with the idea of expanding the showpiece event to 48 teams but it’s been determined as not practical. France won the last World Cup in Russia in 2018 With the event just three years away, Qatari organisers did not feel there was enough time to carry out studies on the logistical impact of an expanded competition. The desert state has been preparing for a 32-team tournament, with eight stadia, since 2010. Feasibility studies involving neighbouring countries were also carried out but no solutions were found. “The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will therefore remain as originally planned with 32 teams,” a statement read. The 2026 tournament in the United States, Canada and Mexico will be the first World Cup for 48 finalists. The Al Wakrah Stadium in Doha will host the opening match of the 2022 tournament Qatar 2022 World Cup: Latest spectacular images of planned and completed stadiums The statement added: “FIFA and Qatar have jointly explored all possibilities to increase the number of participant teams from 32 to 48 teams by involving neighbouring countries. Following a thorough and comprehensive consultation process… it was concluded that under the current circumstances such a proposal could not be made now. “Additionally, FIFA and Qatar have once again explored the feasibility of Qatar hosting a 48-team tournament by in particular lowering certain key FIFA requirements.
