Token fine for Atletico

Atletico Madrid have been fined 602 euros after Cristiano Ronaldo was struck on the head by a lighter thrown by one of their fans during Tuesday's Copa del Rey semi-final.

Ronaldo was hit as he left the field at half-time after scoring twice from the spot as Real Madrid went on to secure a 2-0 second leg victory at Vicente Calderon.

Atletico could have been fined up to 30,000 euros and be forced to play up to three games behind close doors.

However, the club escaped with a token punishment as the disciplinary committee took into account that a lighter is not a prohibited item in a stadium and that Ronaldo was not seriously injured and was able to play on.

Madrid won 5-0 on aggregate to advance to the final.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
