“It’s in the top five of the most humiliating defeats I’ve suffered.” With a new book to promote, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil discusses that harrowing 10-2 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich. “I was shocked and disappointed the way it ended at Derby. I’m a little bit shocked and now I’m just getting really angry. That anger has motivated me, driven me to say ‘I know the Championship, I know coaching’.” Former England boss Steve McClaren believes he still has another second-tier job in him. “I just remember to myself that I think I have got the third or fourth-best win record in the Premier League.” David Moyes, who also appears to be eyeing up a spot of work in the Championship, prompts a run on mocking emojis across the whole internet with his post-match comments on Saturday. “I would prefer to be first in the league and not having this record. It doesn’t give us anything, this record.” Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays down the importance of Manchester United’s long unbeaten run ahead of the Chelsea game then fails to make Mourinho’s starting line up. Coincidence? You decide. “I’m very much an interim coach.
