04/25/2018 01:28 AM How long is Sebastian Giovinco for Toronto FC? While Toronto FC’s CONCACAF Champions League success has largely been driven by Sebastian Giovinco — Wednesday’s final second leg not withstanding — perhaps the Reds’ brass isn’t convinced the diminutive 31-year-old can keep it up much longer (at least in terms of value).

04/26/2018 11:05 AM Bayern Munich doctor slams Guardiola Stephan Uersfeld Bayern Munich club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt has said performance-enhancing drugs make no sense in football and again hit out at the club's former coach Pep Guardiola.

04/26/2018 09:04 PM Antoine Griezmann sucker punch floors Arsenal Emirates Stadium, London (CNN)As goodbyes go it wasn't supposed to be quite like this. Ten-man Atletico Madrid battled to a 1-1 draw against Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League semifinal in Arsene Wenger's final European night in North London. Everything seemed to be going to Wenger's script with eight minutes to go -- "1-0 to the Arsenal," as the famous chant goes -- but a late equalizer from Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann canceled out Alexandre Lacazette's earlier headed effort, leaving the tie in the balance for the second leg. It was a heated affair from the kickoff, with Atletico defender Sime Vrsaljko sent off in the ninth minute, shortly followed by his manager Diego Simeone
04/25/2018 02:00 PM Iniesta gets Ballon d'Or apology from France Football Ian Holyman France Football has said sorry to Andres Iniesta for never having awarded the Barcelona and Spain icon the Ballon d'Or during his career, and urged him to excel at this summer's FIFA World Cup so he can claim the prize for 2018. Iniesta, 33, is widely expected to bid European football farewell at the end of the season and head to China after 16 wildly successful years at the top of the world game that have seen him amass 34 major winners' medals, a tally he is poised to add to with a final La Liga title. Despite his triumphs, which include scoring the 2010 FIFA World Cup final winner, Iniesta has never lifted football's most prestigious individual prize. The closest he has come was
