We're better than Dortmund – Wagner urges Bayern to respond
Bayern Munich forward Sandro Wagner dismissed any suggestions the club were rebuilding, saying the Bundesliga champions have a better squad than Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund are four points clear atop the table and seven ahead of Bayern after winning a thrilling Der Klassiker on Saturday. Wagner feels Bayern are better than Dortmund despite their contrasting starts to the season, as the Germany international urged his team to respond and win the league title. "It's crazy when you look at the league table. We are fifth, which can't be the aspiration of Bayern Munich or us players," he said. "We have to win the Bundesliga title this year, anything else would be a disappointment. We have the best team by far, in Germany. Disappointing to say the least #BVBFCB 3-2 pic.twitter.com/PvkSgbtj50 — FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) November 10, 2018 "Of course, Dortmund have played a couple of good games, but in my opinion we are the better team. "Therefore, every single player needs to have the ambition to become a German champion. To say it's a rebuilding phase or similar is rubbish. "We have to win the Bundesliga."

Rooney: Kane and Sterling are England superstars

Rooney: Kane and Sterling are England superstars
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are already superstars for England, according to Wayne Rooney. The former Manchester United striker will win his last international cap in a friendly against United States at Wembley on Thursday. Rooney was part of a 'Golden Generation' of England players who failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals of any major tournament. Kane and Sterling, meanwhile, helped England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, the Tottenham striker claiming the Golden Boot after hitting six goals in Russia. And Rooney feels it is unfair to suggest Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate does not have any world-class players at his disposal. "I think they've got superstars," Rooney told a news conference. "Harry Kane has been top goalscorer in the Premier League for three or four years.  "Raheem Sterling in the last couple of years has been fantastic. I don't think it's fair to say the England team hasn't got superstars.   "What you're saying is we had some great established players: David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry... why didn't it work? I've no idea. pic.twitter.com/SSZMTwVujd — Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) November 12, 2018 "We tried to be successful. We maybe never had the squad, we had the startling 11 which was very good but going into the tournament we maybe never had that back-up. But I think we had a great team, we were unlucky on a couple of occasions, going out on penalties. "We gave our best; it wasn't to be. It's a chance now for this new generation of players to take up that mantle."

Mbappe can do 'extraordinary things', says Deschamps
France coach Didier Deschamps once again sung the praises of Kylian Mbappe after the star's stunning start to the season. Mbappe, 19, has scored 13 goals and provided six assists in 12 games in all competitions for Paris Saint-Germain to begin the campaign. The attacker is a contender to win the Ballon d'Or and Deschamps – whose team face Netherlands and Uruguay later this month – again lauded Mbappe. "Kylian is able to do extraordinary things. Look at his stats. He is efficient. Look at the goals he scored with his club and with us. He also made assists," he told a news conference on Thursday. "He is a young player, who is doing very well at the moment. And he doesn't ask anything. He is an offensive leader for PSG. For us as well. The first player to reach  goals in Europe's top five leagues? That would be the man with the #WorldCup's Young Player Award on his mantelpiece #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/ZmPB2juHCI — FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) October 29, 2018 "But he doesn't try to take more space than he does now.

Schmeichel dedicates 'emotional' victory to Srivaddhanaprabha's family

Schmeichel dedicates 'emotional' victory to Srivaddhanaprabha's family
Kasper Schmeichel dedicated Leicester City's 1-0 Premier League win over Cardiff City on Saturday to the family of late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. The 60-year-old was one of five people killed when a helicopter they were travelling in appeared to lose control shortly after taking off from the King Power Stadium following last Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham. Demarai Gray's solitary goal was enough to give the Foxes maximum points at the Cardiff City Stadium and goalkeeper Schmeichel cited their late owner's family as the inspiration for their performance. "I feel proud," the Dane told Sky Sports. "It's been a really tough week for everyone. The way everyone at the club has handled themselves is a testament to the family that Vichai built. "The win took a lot out of us, that was tough, but I'm so proud of how everyone played, how professional it was. It was always going to be an emotional day. "I think you come across very few people that really impact you. He had a really big impact on my life. You can see from the reaction of everybody that he had an impact on so many lives. He's a man we're immensely proud of, immensely proud to have known. Forever in our hearts. pic.twitter.com/OXBAE1GBZA — Leicester City (@LCFC) November 3, 2018 "We're thinking about his family, we're all hurting, but I can't imagine what they're going through. We wanted to do it for him and them. We hope that we did his family proud." Leicester's players will now travel to Thailand for Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral – a decision Schmeichel says was unanimous among the Foxes squad. "Every single player wanted to go out there," he said. "There was no pressure, everyone deals with grief in different ways. The chance to go out there and attend his funeral was offered to us and everyone jumped on that."
