A Tottenham supporter was arrested for throwing a banana skin at Arsenal and Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he scored during north London derby on Sunday.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed there were seven arrests made and one arrested was a Tottenham fan who hurled banana skin onto the pitch as Aubameyang celebrated scoring an early penalty in front of the Tottenham fans.

The authorities said as Arsenal players mobbed around their star striker who scored the first goal in the match, a banana was seen to be thrown from the away section, landing close by where the Arsenal team celebrated the goal.

Man.U legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointed as new boss until end of the season

Manchester United has appointed their former striker, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s new interim manager following Jose Mourinho’s sacking on Tuesday.

The Old Trafford legend, 45, who scored 126 goals in 366 appearances for United during 11 seasons at the club replaces Mourinho on what is effectively a loan move from Norwegian side Molde.

He will be joined by Mike Phelan as first-team coach, also working alongside Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.

In comments published on Molde’s website, Solskjaer said that he will return to the club, whose league campaign begins at the end of March, when his duties at United are complete.

Solskjaer said on Molde’s website: ‘In football you never know what can happen. We get proof of time after time. This is an opportunity I had to take. I am looking forward to leading Manchester United until the summer.

‘At the same time, I will follow closely what is happening here at home. We have built stone for stone and the end of the season this year gives us hope for another good season.

‘Erling, Trond and Per Magne will do a lot of work while I’m gone. At the same time, I would like to thank the club, and Kjell Inge and Bjorn Rune once again congratulate me on the world’s biggest club.’

‘Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role. I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club,’ said Solskjaer in United’s club statement.

 Zidane warned over taking Man United job after Mourinho’s sack 

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has issued out warning to former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane over taking the Red Devils job.

Neville issued out the warning after United sacked manager, Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.

Zidane has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the past few months.

Neville has now warned Zidane to make sure he has “his own ground rules” and the “correct” support at the club if he eventually takes United job, else he will not succeed.

“Zinedine Zidane has won three European Cups in the last four seasons,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“From that point of view, I don’t think anyone could argue with his pedigree.

“He’s been world class on the pitch, he’s been world class in the dugout at Real Madrid. He wouldn’t be my choice in the sense I would choose Mauricio Pochettino… but on the other hand you couldn’t argue with the introduction of Zinedine Zidane because of his record in the past four years.

“What I would say at this moment in time, any manager coming into that football club needs to make sure they come in with their own ground rules. Make sure the support around them is correct or they won’t succeed.

“If Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are buying better players, getting the first in on players, a better recruitment department and better support network, then they’ll still do better.

“Clubs outspent United for many, many years 10, 12 years ago and Manchester United were still winning leagues. It’s not always about the amount of money you throw at it, there needs to be something more than that.”

Man United will now tackle Cardiff City this weekend in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.

Man Utd sack Jose Mourinho: Red Devils part way with manager after poor start to the season


Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United following their disappointing start to the season.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.

That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.

Mourinho has continued to drop hints that he remains unhappy at that failure to spend big, and he now leaves after two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford, with his final match in charge Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement read.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”
