Low to stay with Germany until 2020, Mourinho faces stadium ban over ref row and Jamie Redknapp drops a clanger


1.  Germany coach Joachim Low has agreed a new contract to keep the 56-year-old in his role with the reigning World Cup holders until the end of Euro 2020.

2. Jose Mourinho could be banned from Old Trafford for two games after the Portuguese manager confronted referee Mark Clattenburg during Saturday’s goal less draw against Burnley. Mourinho was convinced his team should have been given a penalty.

3. Reports in Spain are suggesting Eibar could allow Jota to return to Brentford before the winger’s loan deal expires. Jota returned to Eibar on an 18-month loan due to personal circumstances, although it is understood the issues have now been sorted. However, he hasn’t been in the squad for Eibar’s last two games and a January return to Griffin Park is possible.

4. Gareth Bale has signed a new deal with Real Madrid which will keep the Welsh talisman with the Spanish giants for a further six years and net him £18m a year until 2022.

5. Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says team mate Phillipe Coutinho is the best striker in the Premier League following a string of impressive performances from the Brazilian as Jurgen Klopp’s team continue their strong start to the season.

6. A new survey has found that 82% of football fans would be perfectly fine if players on their team came out as gay. This is in direct opposition to the views of FA chief Greg Clarke, who said recently he thought openly gay people players would get abuse from fans (WhoAteAllThePies).

7. Staff at a Manchester branch of supermarket chain ASDA have rendered United and City managers Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho in pumpkins (ESPNFC).

8. When pundits make mistakes, social media users are never slow at pointing them out for derision. This is exactly what happened when Jamie Redknapp called Chelsea’s Victor Moses a “young English talent”, despite Moses having 24 caps for Nigeria (TeamTalk).

9. Poor Igor Akinfeev just cant catch a break at the moment. We recently told you how a late goal put him in the record books for holding the longest time that a keeper had gone without a Champions League clean sheet. Now he has dropped a clanger to gift CSKA Moscows rivals Spartak at goal (Mirror).

10. And finally… Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny has only committed two fouls this season, and they were both on Chelsea’s Diego Costa (TheSun).
