JEREMY CROSS COLUMN: Guardiola’s Man City test, Rooney’s troubles, tennis equality dilemma

29 Mar

CHRIS COLEMAN is living in the dark ages.

He has banned wives and girlfriends from the Wales camp during the opening stages of their Euro 2016 campaign.

Other bosses have done this before, including former England manager Fabio Capello, and in general it never works out well.

Players get bored in their own company and staring at videos, statistics and game plans becomes tedious after a while.

Footballers need a release or a welcome distraction to keep them relaxed and happy.

I know its been a while since Wales took part in a major competition, but Coleman’s decision will make his stars feel untrusted and is like a bad trip back in time.

He’ll be banning ketchup and brown sauce next!


NO-ONE would complain if Adam Scott wins his second Masters Green Jacket in two weeks’ time.

The likeable Aussie is a class act both on and off the golf course.

Scott has been the most in-form star in world golf in recent weeks and one of the hot favourites heading to Augusta.

But he never loses sight of the most important things in life, as he proved at the ‘WGC Dell Match Play’ championship in Texas.

Scott was taking on Belgian rival Thomas Pieters and marked the occasion by wearing a black ribbon on his cap as a mark of respect to those who died in the terrorist attacks in Brussels.

Scott might have millions in the bank and a huge fan club around the world, but he remains humble and is a true credit to his sport.
