Markus Babbel: Linked with Lions hotseat

Millwall say they have yet to choose a new manager amid speculation former Liverpool defender Markus Babbel is set to get the job.

Babbel has emerged as a surprise contender to succeed Kenny Jackett, who quit at the end of the season after almost six years in charge at The Den.

The Lions are understood to be looking to Europe for their next boss and ex-Germany international Babbel, 40, would fit the bill having previously guided Hertha Berlin to promotion as well as managing Stuttgart and Hoffenheim.

But Millwall chief executive Andy Ambler has played down talk of an imminent appointment.

"It is true we now have shortlist of some half a dozen candidates and the interviewing process will begin at the end of this week," Ambler told the club website.

"No decision is likely to be made within the next 10 days or so, and indeed I would anticipate that we would speak to some candidates more than once before we are ready to make an appointment.

"The reality is that the process is just getting under way and at this stage there is no preferred candidate."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
