Off the Pitch

Paul Pogba And Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Agent Just Bought Al Capone's Old House

Sometimes a story comes along that just feels right. This is one of those. Mino Raiola, the super-agent who represents Manchester United new boys Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, has purchased a Miami beach house once owned by crime boss Al Capone.

Christian Fuchs and Riyad Mahrez Star In Baywatch Spoof Video

We love those crazy Leicester City lads. When they're not sticking it to the established order of the Premier League hierarchy, they're usually getting into a bunch of crazy shenanigans. Hence, we bring to you their new Baywatch-themed kit spot. 

Once again, it is the spotlight-smitten Christian Fuchs who is taking the lead in Leicester's new video, essentially doing his best to be David Hasselhoff as he sets out to rescue the "helpless" Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Grey (apparently he did give some "Fuchs" on that day, #SomeFuchsGiven). 

Neymar Is Trash At Golf And It's Fine Because Golf Is Trash

The Olympics haven't started yet, so Brazilian striker Neymar has nothing to do except sit around and learn to play golf. Try to learn to play golf, that is.

The Selecao captain received a golfing lesson from 16-year-old Spanish golfer Agueda Cortilla Mas, a Barcelona native. She was very good at showing Neymar how to golf. He was very bad at golfing.

These Spanish Kits Will Make You Feel Hungry And Ill At The Same Time

You may remember that we previously wrote about CD Deportivo Leganes and their rather bizarre scratch-and-sniff kit. Now, you're probably thinking that it couldn't get any weirder than that. We have something to show you. 

See, for whatever reason, Spanish lower-league clubs seem to be in some sort of intense competition over who can make the most eye-punishing travesty of a kit. We've made fun of plenty of kits over the years, from all across the world. But the Spanish, well, they're just on another level. 

The State Of Emergency In Turkey Has Footballers Fleeing The Country

It’s not a pretty sight when off-field issues drive players away from their clubs. From threats made by supporters to financial troubles within the club, we’ve seen all kinds of reasons for players to push for moves away from their current teams. 

However, in the past few years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of players who’ve left in fear because of political unrest threatening their own personal safety.

We saw that happen during the Ukrainian crisis not too long ago, and, unfortunately, we are watching a similar scenario unfold in Turkey. 

Lionel Messi Given 21-Month Prison Sentence For Tax Fraud

The court of Catalonia has sentenced Lionel Messi and his father Jorge to 21 months in prison for evading more than €4 million in owed tax payments. However, since the sentence is less than two years and both of the accused have a clean criminal record, they’ll likely escape serving any time behind bars.

A Legendary Rock Band Wants Hammers Boss Slaven Bilic To Join Them Onstage

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is a rock star. No, seriously. Watch this: 

That is Bilic's rock band side project, Rawbau, who were formed in his hometown of Split in Croatia. It's not his first, either. Back when he retired in 2001, he tried his hand at the whole music game with a band called Newera, although it never really took off.
