Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he has relaxed. He is more in charge of his emotions, and is no longer consumed by football. He also has said that United are lacking senior players with knowledge of victory, and that was why Zlatan Ibrahimovic was brought in for at least this season. He says that only Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick are there from the last team of substance, which is a shame for Antonio Valencia.

The newly calm Mourinho claims that United will have to play nine games in April because they have 'a lot of enemies'. The games United have to play are West Brom, Sunderland, Everton, Anderlecht, Chelsea, Anderlecht, Burnley, Manchester City and Swansea. Only two of those games are difficult - there are no excuses not to win six of them.

Antoine Griezmann says he dreams of being at a big club, but is happy at Atletico and to stay in Spain for now. The article says it's a snub to United, but it's not really saying much one way or another. Why he would join a United in the doldrums is unclear, though - they really need to have proper European football next season.

Goodbye Bastian Schweinsteiger, you looked really happy to do very little work in exchange for a huge amount of money. Nevertheless, if he can actually get fit and lose a bit of weight, Chicago Fire have a very talented player on their hands.

And here's Zlatan Ibrahimovic standing next to the former king of Spain. No, I don't know either.
