Daily sports briefs | Jose Mourinho swaps his bus for a delivery truck, Neymar's mother dumps 'toyboy', Raelene no longer queen of her castle - and more!
"SPECIAL ONE" SWAPS HIS BUS FOR A DELIVERY TRUCK
We couldn't help but chuckle at the news that Jose Mourinho has volunteered to deliver vegetables to the Spurs' training ground for distribution to the local area. We know that he will have no problems handling the delivery truck as he has become famous over the years for "parking the bus"!
MYTWOCENTS VERDICT: Jokes aside, Mourinho deserves credit for putting his massive ego to one side to help others in need.
NEYMAR'S MOM SAMPLES THE MENU
Neymar's mother has been stealing all the headlines away from her celebrity son of late. Two weeks ago she confirmed that she was in a relationship with a 23-year-old "toyboy", receiving a public blessing from Neymar himself. The romance however was short lived as she has dumped the young stud ... after discovering he had been in a previous relationship with Neymar's personal chef ... Mauro!
MYTWOCENTS VERDICT: Note to Neymar - keep sausage off the menu at home in future!
BRADY LUCKY TO BE ALIVE
It seems Tom Brady is struggling to adjust to life in his new home town, Tampa Bay. Last week he was cautioned for practicing in a closed park and news has since emerged that he mistakenly entered the wrong house while attempting to visit his coach. Apparently the house next door was unlocked - a concept that would be foreign to South Africans - and he mistakenly entered it with his duffel bags. The owner of the house, apparently relaxing on his sofa, was more than startled to see a 6'4 quarterback suddenly enter his lounge ... let alone the greatest of all time!
MYTWOCENTS VERDICT: We think TB12 was lucky not to get a cap in his a$$ so to speak! Lax gun controls in the US could easily have seen this accident become more serious.
BARCA TO TAKE THE HIGH ROAD WITH ALKI
Barcelona are reportedly in talks over selling the naming rates to their iconic Nou Camp stadium to a consortium that specialises in CBD (cannabidiol) oil amongst other things. British billionaire, David Alki, is the man behind the consortium while Barcelona have said that they will donate all the proceeds (in excess of £25m) to fund research in the fight against the coronavirus.
MYTWOCENTS VERDICT: That sounds like a smoking good gesture from Barca! The likes of notoriously tight-fisted Daniel Levy at Spurs could take a leaf (sorry!) out of their book!
RAELENE NO LONGER QUEEN OF THE CASTLE
The Australian Rugby Union has announced the resignation of chief executive Raelene Castle. She had received heavy criticism for her handling of the Israel Folau matter as well as being blamed for the financial hole that the ARU had found themselves in. Her position had divided Australian rugby with former players squaring up on either side of the debate. John Eales was among those supporting her while another group including Phil Kearns, George Gregan and Nick Farr-Jones was against her.
MYTWOCENTS VERDICT: We don't really have a view to be honest. In these difficult financial times, it has hard to pinpoint the blame on anyone.
