first_img• FORMER England fast bowler Devon Malcolm says it is “really difficult” to come to terms with the death of his father from coronavirus, after not being able to visit him in hospital.Malcolm’s father Albert, who lived in a care home, died aged 75 on 4 April.He had been admitted to hospital with a bladder infection on 29 March and had only tested positive for coronavirus two days before his death.“It’s so sad, we lost him in a few days,” Malcolm told BBC Radio 5 Live.“It’s so difficult when a loved one is admitted to hospital and you are told you can’t visit, you can’t be there for them.“Later on when I got the call to say he had passed, it was a very, very weird feeling.”Malcolm said he last saw his father about a month before his death when he was in “good fettle” and had not visited since because he was adhering to social distancing measures designed to shield the most vulnerable from the virus.“Until you get the death certificate and the reality sinks in, it feels like you’re having a dream and you’ll be out of it in a minute,” added the 57-year-old.“I’m trying to come to terms with it but it’s going to be really difficult.”Malcolm said his father had been responding well to antibiotics to treat the bladder infection but was tested for coronavirus after starting to develop some breathing problems.“It’s surreal – you’re told he’s responding well so you think everything is all right, then next you hear you’re told to prepare for the worst and then 20 minutes later, he’s gone,” he said.“We have a date for the funeral but the process is so different now to going through a bereavement in the past,” added Malcolm, whose mother died when he was five.“There are only five people plus the vicar allowed at the graveside.“We’re hoping in the future when we get back to some normality, we can possibly do a proper service, celebrating his life with all his grandkids and his friends.”(BBC Sport)last_img read more

first_imgManchester United boss Mourinho meanwhile is often seen more as more pragmatic and obsessed with winning, something that has brought him 25 trophies during his 17-year managerial career, including Champions League titles with Porto and Inter Milan.Yet as the two managers prepare to face each other at Old Trafford on Sunday, Guardiola, himself a winner of 22 trophies and the same number of Champions Leagues, says they share that hunger for success.“Definitely,” he said. “In that, we are twins. They want to win trophies, we want to win trophies.“I think Antonio Conte is the same as well, and Jurgen (Klopp) and Mauricio (Pochettino) and in all the leagues around the world, the managers are there.”Guardiola suggested in an interview with the BBC in September that United “play long balls up to (Marouane) Fellaini and (Paul) Pogba” as a priority, a criticism that appears to irk Mourinho.“I never criticise my colleagues for the way they play. I never did in the past, I will never do it.“Football is magnificent for that because every manager plays in the way they play. There are different ways to enjoy football. It’s simple like that.”Guardiola and Mourinho have often been at loggerheads in the past, with a rivalry that dates back to their time as rival managers in Spain between 2010 and 2012.While Guardiola was widely praised for his aesthetically pleasing approach at Barcelona, at Real Madrid Mourinho was seen as a coach for whom winning was the be all and end all, despite the record number of goals, points and away wins his team racked up in winning the 2012 La Liga title.Guardiola won 21 trophies over seven years with the Barcelona first team and Bayern Munich — his other trophy the Spanish third division title with Barcelona B — but ended his first campaign at City empty-handed, while United won the Europa League and the League Cup.The City manager looks set to put that right this time around, with his side unbeaten in the Premier League and eight points clear at the top going into the derby.Guardiola has no intention of playing defensively at Old Trafford to maintain that lead.“Winning, drawing or losing on Sunday, we are not going to win or lose the Premier League. It’s December,” he said.“It’s an important game, because it’s United. You can get points and deny your opponent points. But it’s the same for them.”Guardiola confirmed that David Silva will be fit for the match despite earlier saying he was a doubt.Silva did not travel to Ukraine for Wednesday’s 2-1 Champions League defeat by Shakhtar Donetsk in Kharkiv but reported for training on Friday morning.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola (L) and Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho are preparing to face each other at Old Trafford © AFP/File / Glyn KIRK, Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 8 – Pep Guardiola says he and Jose Mourinho’s obsession with winning trophies makes them “twins” despite the perceived difference in their styles as the two great rivals prepare for the Manchester derby.Guardiola is renowned for his philosophy of possession-based, passing football, which has he slowly instilled at Manchester City since his arrival as coach in 2016.last_img read more
