Subject: Juventus fearful after Zidane goes out on a limb Zinedine Zidane last night risked a furious row with Juventus by gambling on his injured knee for France just seven days before the Champions League semi-final against Manchester United. The World Footballer of the Year injured the knee against Greek side Olympiakos last week and arrived at France's training camp at Clairefontaine wearing a specially-fitted brace. Juventus, initially fearful that the injury would rule Zidane out of the first-leg at Old Trafford, allowed the midfielder to join the France squad on the understanding that he would not play against either Ukraine on Saturday or Armenia next Wednesday. The Italian club's fear is that Zidane's possible absence will compound a deepening injury crisis in Turin. However, Zidane said last night: 'I'm relieved because the swelling on my knee has gone down and I can bend it now. 'I won't be able to play on Saturday but I'll know in two or three days if I'll be able to play against Armenia.' The 26-year-old midfielder plans to test his knee with a running session on Saturday. If he suffers no adverse reaction from that or a further session on Sunday, he will declare himself fit for the European Championship group four qualifying match against the Armenians. He has been accompanied to Clairefontaine by Philippe Boixel, osteopath to the France team who also acts as a consultant for Juventus. The club are seething at Zidane's intention to jeopardise his Champions League participation by putting country before club. The pair last night received a thinly-veiled threat from Juventus vice-president Roberto Bettega, who said: 'Zidane is an intelligent man and Boixel is a very competent doctor. They know the risks involved and know what's at stake in the Champions League. 'If they truly believe Zidane is 100 per cent fit, then there's no risk whatsoever. They can consider him playing. 'Otherwise, I honestly hope they will use common sense. I trust they won't jeopardise what we've worked so hard to achieve.' It is not the first occasion Zidane has incurred the wrath of Juventus. The Serie A club remember only too well FIFA's All-Star game held prior to the World Cup draw in his home town of Marseille in December 1997. Juventus ordered Zidane to play one half of the match at most. Instead, he stayed on for the whole 90 minutes and returned to Turin with an injury sustained in the final minutes. United will also be heartened by the news that two other key Juventus players are in danger of missing the match at Old Trafford on April 7. Goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi is rated extremely doubtful with the knee injury which has kept him out for the past month. Italy's first choice is not with the national squad which travels to Denmark this weekend and will almost certainly require a pain-killing injection before the United match, if he is risked at all. In addition, Uruguayan strong man Paolo Montero requires an operation on a damaged hamstring which has become chronic. He will put it off for the duration of Juve's Champions League campaign but his chances of playing against United are still rated no better than 50-50. One player who will be at Old Trafford is veteran Juventus captain Antonio Conte, who scored goals in both legs of the quarter-final against Olympiakos. Conte's recent form has earned him a recall to the Italy squad by coach Dino Zoff for the impending games against Denmark and Belarus. Zoff will be without Lazio's Christian Vieri for the potentially decisive qualifier against the Danes in Copenhagen. The rampaging striker misses Saturday's game with a broken toe - the fifth successive time injury has ruled him out of the national side. He said: 'By now I'm really beginning to think someone has put the evil eye on me.'
Subject: CAN'T COOKE MANCHESTER United boss Alex Ferguson has slapped a =A31.5million price-tag on Terry Cooke. Ferguson is increasing his valuation on squad man Cooke, who is on loan at Manchester City. But, ironically, it could work out to be a favour for City as First Division high-flyers Bradford have been scared off by the fee. City are the only club who can sign the winger after tomorrow's transfer deadline as he is already registered with them.
Subject: United face yellow peril Arsenal have lost the toss with Manchester United and will wear their yellow away strip for the FA Cup semi-final at Villa Park on April 11. The Gunners may see the shirt change as an omen. Twenty years ago they beat United in the final dressed in their second colours. But this is the Semi-Final, and United haven't lost a match in 1999. The REDS are RED HOT!
Subject: Ryan Giggs - hopes dashed for a Wales appearance in 2000 WALES boss Bobby Gould's Euro 2000 hopes have been hit after news that winger Ryan Giggs (above) has suffered yet another worrying hamstring injury. Gould knows that the Manchester United star is crucial to his national side in their qualifying clash in Switzerland which could go a long way to deciding whether Wales qualify for next summer's finals in Holland and Belgium. When Giggs failed to appear even on the bench for Sunday's 3-1 home win over Everton, Welsh fans feared the worst. But Old Trafford boss Alex Ferguson said that although the injury is another hamstring problem, Giggs will join up with his international team-mates on Thursday and the decision will be left to the FAW's medical experts. ''Alex has said that Ryan can join us, and that is what will happen,'' confirmed Gould. ''We will have a good look at him on Thursday and take it from there.''
Subject: REDS MEMORABLE EUROPEAN MATCHES 1956-1998 http://www.red11.org/mufc/euro.htm UNITED'S 11 MOST MEMORABLE EUROPEAN MATCHES September 26 1956; Manchester United 10 Anderlecht 0 Manchester United's home debut in Europe at Maine Road. "One of the most perfect exhibitions of football my side has ever given," said Matt Busby. Inspired by David Pegg, who set up eight goals, including four for Dennis Viollet and a hat-trick for Tommy Taylor. February 6 1957; Manchester United 3 Athletic Bilbao 0 The first of United's great comebacks after losing 5-3 in Spain. Viollet, Johnny Berry and, in the final seconds, Taylor squeezed United through to a semi-final which they lost to the great Real Madrid. February 5 1958; Red Star 3 Manchester United 3 The game in Yugoslavia before the ill-fated flight 24 hours later which never left the runway at Munich, leaving the flower of Matt Busby's team in the wreckage. December 10 1963; Manchester United 4 Tottenham 1 Trailing 2-0 to the great Spurs side of Dave Mackay and Danny Blanchflower in the second round of the Cup Winners' Cup, United steamrollered the Londoners in the return, David Herd and Bobby Charlton both scoring twice. March 9 1966; Benfica 1 Manchester United 5 United's finest performance on foreign soil. Only one goal to the good from the European Cup second round first leg, they slaughtered the Eagles, a possessed Best scoring twice, while John Connolly, Paddy Crerand and Bobby Charlton completed the rout of the Portuguese champions. May 29 1968; Manchester United 4 Benfica 1 United became the first English club to be crowned champions of Europe, fittingly at Wembley on a night dominated by George Best and Bobby Charlton, while Denis Law watched from his hospital bed. After it was 1-1 at full-time (Charlton header), Best, Brian Kidd and Charlton again completed an emotional night. May 15 1968; Real Madrid 3 Manchester United 3 Defending a 1-0 lead from the first leg, United were on their way out when 3-1 down at half-time but fought back to clinch a place in the final with goals from David Sadler and Bill Foulkes' late header. March 21 1984; Manchester United 3 Barcelona 0 United looked on their way out of the Cup Winners' Cup after Diego Maradona's Spaniards took a 2-0 lead in the third round first leg. But England skipper Bryan Robson was inspired, scoring twice and Frank Stapleton getting the other as 58,547 roared United through, only to lose to Juventus in the semi-finals. May 15 1991; Barcelona 1 Manchester United 2 Alex Ferguson guided United to their first European trophy for 23 years in the Rotterdam final of the Cup Winners' Cup, Mark Hughes scoring two superb second half goals defended against Ronald Koeman's late consolation for the Spaniards. March 5 1997: Manchester United 4 Porto 0 "A performance to match Barcelona in 1984", said chairman Martin Edwards after the previously all-conquering Portuguese were hammered into the ground. October 1, 1997: Manchester United 3 Juventus 2 United hit back from conceding a goal after just 24 seconds of this European Champions' League match, going 3-1 up through Teddy Sheringham, Paul Scholes and Giggs. A last-gasp free kick by the Italians merely gave the scoreline respectability.
