Former Manchester United and Fulham striker Louis Saha is either looking for love or literary debate after he caught the internet's attention by aiming an unexpected late night tweet at Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

Champion's League-winner Saha who retired from the game in 2013 after unsatisfying spells with Sunderland and Lazio hit up the world's richest woman with the surprise message just after 11pm on Tuesday night.

A Few Things I am Thankful For This La Liga Season

Happy Thanksgiving folks! And if you are from another country other than the USA and therefore don't celebrate the holiday then my apologies.

Real Madrid Wins “Most Important Game” Of the Season

Good thing for Los Blancos that they won earlier today because if they had not then the entire starting XI would have been "dead to" Jose Mourinho. At least that is what the Special One claimed a few weeks back when his Real Madrid side faced off against lowly Murcia for the first time. Mourinho was so focused on winning the opening Copa del Rey match that the coach claimed that if his side lost then they would be "dead to him".

Mourinho Warns Players of Becoming “Dead To Him”

La Liga Report at related • 2 views

Jose Mourinho is in my opinion the funniest speech giver in all of La Liga, but this week the Man "Who Isn't Harry Potter" grimly warned his players of becoming "dead to him" if they lose their Tuesday's King's Cup first leg match against relatively unknown Real Murcia.

The speech seemed especially strange considering that Mourinho's side is currently in first place in La Liga league play and also just coming off of a fantastic Champions League victory against AC Milan and 6-1 league win over Racing Santander this Saturday, but perhaps this recent wave of great success is why the coach made the bold proclamation to his players.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic couldn’t score on Joe Hart, so he drank his water instead

Football disobeyed the mighty will of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as England beat Sweden 3-2. Zlatan scored exactly none of the match's five goals -- though he did set up Sweden's first with his levitation kick (see below) -- and his frustration only grew throughout the match. As Sweden fought back to take the lead in the second half before eventually losing it again, the primary target of Zlatan's fury was England keeper Joe Hart.
