Default What The Sports Papers Say

THE GUARDIAN: Secret plans to transform European domestic rugby union are being considered by French and English sides keen to put the professional club game on a firmer financial footing. One leading official from a Premiership club is warning of a possible "violent breakaway" by wealthier European clubs. Also: Fabio Capello harbours no regrets about his reappointment of John Terry as England's permanent captain, and has confirmed the Chelsea centre-half will regain the armband after this evening's friendly against Spain.

THE INDEPENDENT: Fabio Capello yesterday threw his full support behind his embattled captain John Terry by declaring that he had "no regrets" at reappointing the player to the position in March, and announcing that Terry will lead England out against Sweden on Tuesday. Also: Two years after Thierry Henry's handball and 10 years after their last qualification, Ireland are now 90 minutes away from Euro 2012... Manchester City have announced they are prepared to take a calculated risk by not entering into discussions on a new contract for midfielder Nigel de Jong until next summer.

THE SUN: Frank Lampard insists John Terry is not racist. Also: Furious England chiefs sacked Mike Tindall because he refused to say sorry for his boozy night out at the World Cup.

DAILY EXPRESS: Fabio Capello insists he has no regrets over restoring John Terry as England captain - despite the fact Frank Lampard will lead the team out against Spain today. Also: Mike Tindall will appeal against his record £25,000 fine after his England career ended in disgrace with his ejection from the squad for his World Cup bar-room incidents in New Zealand.

DAILY MIRROR: Fabio Capello has taken John Terry out of the firing line at Wembley tonight - but he will wear the captain's armband next week. Also: Mike Tindall last night vowed to fight the RFU after being fined £25,000 and dumped from the England squad... Aaron Ramsey insists he can still play for Team GB at the Olympics and be a committed Wales captain.

DAILY STAR: Fabio Capello last night insisted: I don't regret giving the England captaincy back to John Terry. Also: The Republic of Ireland virtually booked their place in Euro 2012 with a stunning first-leg play-off win in Estonia last night... London landed the 2017 World Athletics Championship yesterday after beating off a mega-bucks bid by Doha.

DAILY MAIL: England's rugby players have been warned that any future drunken behaviour and indiscipline could see them suffer the same fate as Mike Tindall. Also: Frank Lampard says England would have considered standing up to FIFA if they hadn't agreed to putting poppies on armbands.

THE TIMES: Lord Coe ushered in a golden decade for British sport after London won its duel with Doha for the right to stage the 2017 World Athletics Championships yesterday.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: England have wrapped arms of support around their besieged leader, John Terry, with Frank Lampard, captain against Spain this evening, saying that the defender was "absolutely not" a racist. Also: From glory to ignominy, Mike Tindall's England career apparently ended in disgrace yesterday.

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

DAILY EXPRESS: Cesc Fabregas has criticised England's "defensive" style of football in the victory over Spain and claims they are boring without Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere. Also: John Terry will be banned from speaking today about his race row with Anton Ferdinand when he faces the media for the first time since the flashpoint.

THE INDEPENDENT: Fabio Capello has warned his England squad that their victory over world champions Spain on Saturday will count for little unless they can beat the less formidable Sweden team whom they face at Wembley tomorrow. Also: In a private moment played out amid the very public euphoria in the McLaren camp in Abu Dhabi's twilight yesterday, Lewis Hamilton's mother Carmen stood momentarily alone, wiping away her tears. Birthday presents come no better than the one that her son had just given her, after scoring a totally dominant - and much-needed - victory in the penultimate grand prix of his punishing season.

THE SUN: John Terry will speak publicly today for the first time since his race row with Anton Ferdinand kicked off. But the England skipper has been ordered not to answer any questions about his alleged racist comments to the QPR defender. Also: Cesc Fabregas last night warned Robin van Persie: If you don't quit Arsenal now you never will.

THE GUARDIAN: England could play the Republic of Ireland in a Euro 2012 warm-up game in Dublin after the football associations of both countries revealed they are hopeful a fixture can be arranged. There would be clear security implications around the match, potentially the first between the teams since a friendly at Lansdowne Road in 1995 was abandoned because of crowd violence. Also: Shaun Edwards confirmed on Sunday night that he is almost certain to stay coaching Wales until the next Rugby World Cup in 2015, effectively ruling out his involvement with any new England set-up during the next four years.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: Cesc Fabregas, the former Arsenal captain, has offered a damning assessment of the England side fielded by Fabio Capello, dismissing the team that beat Spain as "lacking in talent to make things happen". Also: Smiling uncontrollably, for the first time in months, diamond earrings glistening beneath the floodlights of Yas Marina's shimmering circuit, Lewis Hamilton soaked up his first win since Germany this summer.

DAILY STAR: Fabio Capello has warned England: Don't ruin your good work by flopping against Sweden. Also: Cesc Fabregas has told Robin van Persie: You'll never have another chance to quit Arsenal.

DAILY MIRROR: Fabio Capello last night claimed tomorrow's game with Sweden is bigger than the shock win over world champions. Also: Roberto Mancini reckons England's young squad can win Euro 2012.

DAILY MAIL: England are being lined up for a friendly against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin next June, 16 years after rioting supporters caused the last game between the teams to be abandoned after 27 minutes. Also: Fabio Capello guided England to a famous victory against Spain amid concerns for one of his most trusted lieutenant. Ray Clemence - officially titled Head of National Teams - was taken to hospital on the eve of the match and was missing at Wembley on Saturday.

THE TIMES: Manchester City could sue Carlos Tevez for compensation should they decide to terminate his contract on grounds of gross misconduct, The Times has learnt. Also: Lewis Hamilton has told anyone who was willing to listen this week that he was feeling in a better place mentally than he had for months and under the floodlights of Abu Dhabi's stunning Yas Marina circuit yesterday, the poster boy of British motor sport ensured those words did not ring hollow.

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

THE GUARDIAN: FIFA's president, Sepp Blatter, yesterday became embroiled in a fresh row with the Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand amid trenchant calls for the Swiss to resign over his claims that racism on the football pitch is not an issue and can be settled with a handshake. Also: Patrice Evra, the Manchester United defender at the centre of the Luis Suarez racism case, has been accused of over-reacting and "crying like a baby" in an astonishing attack by Gus Poyet, a friend of the Liverpool striker.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: Sepp Blatter became embroiled in an extraordinary internet row with former England captain Rio Ferdinand yesterday, as outrage over the FIFA president's remarks about racism in football intensified. Also: Liverpool rallied around under-fire striker Luis Suarez last night as they vowed to prove his innocence of racism charges.

DAILY STAR: Desperate Liverpool star Luis Suarez has called in the help of his own government in his fight against allegations of racism. Also: Shameless Sepp Blatter yesterday attempted to rewrite history in a bid to defuse the race row he ignited.

DAILY MIRROR: Sepp Blatter brushed off increasing pressure for him to quit as FIFA president last night despite being told he's "embarrassing" football. Also: Brighton boss Gus Poyet last night branded Patrice Evra a cry-baby for complaining about alleged racist comments made by Liverpool's Luis Suarez.

THE TIMES: The fallout from England's ill-fated rugby union World Cup campaign is continuing unabated with the news that Manu Tuilagi will face further disciplinary action as a result of events during their blighted stay in New Zealand. Also: Didier Drogba has rejected an approach to play alongside Samuel Eto'o at Anzhi Makhachkala in January after being offered a lucrative contract.

THE INDEPENDENT: Luis Suarez has only himself to blame for the racism charge he now faces because he failed to apologise for, or personally explain, the Spanish slang which he claims has been the cause of the anger felt by Manchester United's Patrice Evra, the Kick It Out organisation said last night. Also: Wayne Rooney and Fabio Capello will both attend the England striker's appeal hearing against his three-match UEFA ban in person on December 8 after the meeting was arranged yesterday specifically to enable the player to be present.

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

DAILY MAIL

Manchester City will escape with a fine if, as expected, they become one of the first clubs in Europe to break UEFA's Financial Fair Play guidelines. Also: Shamed FIFA president Sepp Blatter apologised last night for his extraordinary outburst about racism, but steadfastly refused to step down as head of world football.

Also: FIFA president Sepp Blatter has apologised for his comments about the scale of racism in football but insists that he will not resign, and remains committed to reforming the scandal-racked organisation.

Also: Leading figures in the English game have welcomed Sepp Blatter's apology for any offence caused by his view that racial abuse between players could be settled with a handshake.

DAILY STAR

Manchester City last night revealed a staggering loss of £195million. Also: Andre Villas-Boas last night claimed goal-shy Fernando Torres has been worth every penny of his whopping £50m transfer fee.

Manchester City have announced the biggest loss in English football history, £197m for the most recent financial year.

THE INDEPENDENT

Also: Sepp Blatter, the embattled FIFA president, yesterday issued a full public apology for suggesting incidents racist abuse of the football pitch could be settled with a handshake, but his move failed to stem the rising tide of condemnation from the game's managers, players, and power-brokers.

Default Re: What The Sports Papers Say

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

THE TIMES: Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Manchester United's strength of character as his side turned up the pressure on Manchester City in the title race. Also: Darkness was falling on Kempton Park but Paul Nicholls still stood in the winner's enclosure, green-and-yellow scarf around his neck, serene smile fixed on his face and talking animatedly of parading Kauto Star around his Somerset village of Ditcheat today. Bring out the flags. This is a homecoming worth celebrating.

DAILY STAR: Andre Villas-Boas threw in the towel in the title race last night. Also: Kauto Star was crowned King of Kempton for a staggering fifth time yesterday.

DAILY EXPRESS: Roberto Mancini last night angrily hit out at Sky TV's scheduling of their Festive fixtures after watching his Manchester City team surrender their points advantage at the top of the Premier League. Also: Kauto Star saw off Long Run's challenge in yesterday's William Hill King George Chase to record a record fifth victory in the race.

DAILY MIRROR: Sir Alex Ferguson challenged his Manchester United players to give him the perfect 70th birthday present - top spot in the Premier League. Also: Andre Villas-Boas last night admitted Chelsea are out of the title race after their third straight draw.

THE SUN: Roberto Mancini last night blasted Premier League chiefs claiming the holiday fixture list favours arch-rivals Manchester United. Also: Andre Villas-Boas conceded the title to Manchester as Chelsea blew up again.

THE INDEPENDENT: The Manchester City players who are filmed icing a "1-6" scoreline onto a Christmas cake for the club's seasonal video knew last night just how far they are from applying the finishing touches to the title campaign. Also: Paul Nicholls' veteran Kauto Star regains the King George VI crown with a record fifth win.

THE GUARDIAN: Kauto Star established himself as the finest performer in the history of the King George VI Chase, and perhaps as the best steeplechaser that National Hunt racing has seen, when he won the feature event on the Boxing Day card here for the fifth time on Monday. Also: Sir Alex Ferguson praised his Manchester United team for their strength of character after they had pulled level with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League despite a run of injuries and illness that has left him with a full XI of players needing treatment.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: For all the annoyance Sir Alex Ferguson may have felt at Manchester City topping the Premier League on Christmas Day, the flip side is the prospect of toasting his 70th birthday on New Year's Eve with Manchester United looking down on their "noisy neighbours" again. Also: The most famous five-timer in jump racing was recorded more than seven decades ago when Golden Miller strung together a sequence of Cheltenham Gold Cups between 1932 and 1936. But, at Kempton Park, Kauto Star joined that great chaser and arguably even the untouchable Arkle in terms of reputation, when he collected an unprecedented fifth King George VI Chase.

DAILY MAIL: Manchester United drew level with neighbours City at the top of the Barclays Premier League with a five-goal demolition of Wigan. Also: Arsenal have received a massive boost with the news Jack Wilshere could start running by the end of the week.
