I’M FAG ASHES LO SO SORRY! Toon new boy Remy apol­o­gises to fans for snub

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

ENG­LAND’S crick­eters have been smok­ing hot on the pitch so far dur­ing this year’s Ashes – and they look to be the same off it!

Af­ter they re­tained the urn fol­low­ing a rain-af­fected third Test draw at Old Traf­ford on Mon­day, some of the team en­joyed a night out in Manch­ester city cen­tre.

And Tim Bres­nan, Joe Root and Graeme Swann cel­e­brated with a crafty FAG or two.

Our pic­ture cer­tainly won’t have pleased Eng­land coach Andy Flower, who said yes­ter­day that he ex­pects his bowlers to look af­ter them­selves prop­erly in the run-up to the fourth Test at Durham, which starts this Fri­day.

Flower said: “Durham can tra­di­tion­ally help the fast bowlers, so we would like to ex­ploit that up there.

“Our bowlers will need to look af­ter them­selves over the next few days to be ready.” LUIS SUAREZ took an­other step closer to the Liver­pool exit door last night as he was left out of the squad trav­el­ling to Nor­way for a pre-sea­son friendly at Valerenga.

The Kop out­fit claimed Suarez would be stay­ing at home “as a pre­cau­tion fol­low­ing an in­jury in train­ing”.

The an­nounce­ment came out of the blue, prompt­ing fresh spec­u­la­tion his time at An­field is com­ing to an end.

Suarez has made it clear to the Reds he wants to play in the Cham­pi­ons League and that has alerted Arse­nal, who have had two bids re­jected, the last of which was just over £40mil­lion.

The Gun­ners are still hop­ing to push through a deal and, with Suarez stay­ing in Eng­land, will now have the chance to dis­cuss their next move with the striker and his agent.
