Yorke criticises lack of black bosses in football

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has criticised the lack of black bosses in football and claims he cannot get an interview for a manager's job.

Yorke, 45, said he knew of black former players who would not do coaching badges as they felt they had little chance of getting a coaching role.

"If it's not because of the colour of our skin then tell me what it is?" the former Trinidad and Tobago player said.

"I'm speaking out about it. Be fair. At least give us an interview."

Miracles do happen. But not every six weeks.

And not against this Juventus; not with Giorgio Chellini and Leonardo Bonucci, born to block, at the heart of a defence.

Barcelona are out of the Champions League, with Juventus going through into the semi-finals, and now the recriminations and rebuilding will begin in Catalonia.

They could not over-turn a daunting first-leg deficit, as they did in the previous round against Paris Saint-Germain just a month and a half ago, although there were chances.

Lionel Messi, amazingly, was wasteful.

Pakistan beat West Indies in 2nd T20 in Trinidad
