Sport this Week

This week has already seen some amazing sporting stories announced, so just incase you missed some, The Sporting Week has a look back at the week so far.

It would be hard to start without talking about Pep Guardiola who this week confirmed he will take over at German giants Bayern Munich in July.

The former Barcelona man, who has won everything in the game in his time at the Nou Camp, had been on a sabbatical for a year, after leaving the Catalan side in 2012.

He was the most sought after man with reports linking him to all of Europe’s big clubs, including Manchester City, Ac Milan and Chelsea.

However, the meticulous man that he is has gone for a club where he can be in charge of everything, including the youth team playing style, and has gone for Munich, who play in the most financially stable league in the world.

Staying is sport and Manchester United and Arsenal came through their third round replay ties last night, beating West Ham United and Swansea City respectively.

In other news, Northern Ireland’s Paul McGinley will captain Europe at the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

McGinley has been in five previous winning teams before, as a player and an assistant coach but now has the chance to try himself out and the top man.

He has received big support from the European players including world number one Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald, and from Darren Clarke who himself pulled out of the running in recent weeks.

staying with golf and McIlroy has also signed an £156 million pound deal with Nike, that sees the company now own the two biggest properties in golf, and potentially world sport, Tiger Woods and McIlroy.

In Cricket, England lost the second ODI with India by 127 runs as the three lions crumbled badly to a well work Indian performance.

The pain came as Indian captain Mahendra Dhoni  and Ravindra Jadeja blasted 82 off the  last six overs to give England a tricky task, something they were never up to reaching.

Andy Murray has started his quest for his second grand slam title with two comfortable wins in the Australian Open in Melbourne, and fellow Brits Heather Watson and Laura Robson have both started their tournaments well too as they aim to stay inside the women’s top 50.

There are also plans to reopen the Olympic Stadium this year and use the track to host the British Athletics Track and Field Grand Prix, instead of the usual Crystal Palace.

As always you can catch individual sports roundups and previews by our columnists right here every day as we bring the sport closer to you.
