Nemanja Matic: ‘I have to have serious hair like Gary Neville’ | Jamie Jackson

The Manchester United midfielder has had mixed fortunes in finals but stays positive before he faces Tottenham in FA Cup semi-final

Nemanja Matic has sweet memories of playing against Tottenham in an FA Cup semi-final after his glorious 25-yard strike for Chelsea a year ago. The 80th-minute goal led to a final against Arsenal as they won 4-2. Yet Matic is all too aware that disappointment may follow should Manchester United knock out Spurs in the last four on Saturday.

The 29-year-old’s CV shows a chequered experience in finals, including the 2-1 defeat by Arsenal last May. Before that he was an unused substitute when Chelsea won the Cup in May 2010, suspended when they claimed the 2015 League Cup and lost the 2013 Europa League final – against Chelsea – with Benfica.

FA Cup victory would not change Tottenham’s life, says Pochettino

Guardian - tor, 19/04/2018 - 23:36
• Spurs preparing for semi-final against Manchester United
• ‘It is not going to move the club to a different level’

Mauricio Pochettino says that an FA Cup triumph this season would not change Tottenham’s life, as he looked ahead to Saturday’s semi-final against Manchester United. The manager did not waver from his long established view about the importance of the domestic cups and, in the process, he set up an intriguing discussion point.

Facing him at Wembley is José Mourinho, a manager who is obsessed with every piece of silverware – all the way down to the Community Shield. To Mourinho, trophies provide the validation whereas for Pochettino, it is the work and the processes which do that. Does Mourinho’s approach make his players more focused, equipping them with an extra couple of percentage points, hardening their mentality to do whatever it takes to win? Or can Pochettino’s more relaxed vibe offer a platform for his players to express themselves?

Mousa Dembélé – part ballerina, part tank but the complete midfielder | Bart Vlietstra

Guardian - tor, 19/04/2018 - 20:19
The Tottenham player can be hard to characterise but then he has always been one to make unorthodox decisions

Never mind that his name is a mystery. A player who, at the age of 30, is improving to the point where one of his former managers describes him as the best midfielder in the world and Mauricio Pochettino has ranked him alongside Diego Maradona and Ronaldinho deserves to be remembered.

But how? As Moussa Dembélé, which was how he was known from birth until a couple of years ago? Or as Mousa Dembélé, as everybody writes his name now? Mousa (let’s go with the latest version) had been coy about it. “It’s a long story,” he told a Belgian journalist before Euro 2016. Then he revealed in a Belgian magazine it was in fact a short, simple one. When he extended his passport his name was put down with one ‘s’ by accident. Dembélé said he decided to keep it that way.
