People are already speculating on who replace Theresa May as Prime Minister, but there is only one candidate surely.
Mick McCarthy had sympathy for another person who lost their high profile job during the week, while having a dig at his own former employers.
Mick McCarthy is just brilliant 😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/cEUarEtkHZ

Sticking with German football, this might be the most Oliver Khan story I’ve ever heard:
Currently reading 'Tor!' which is a book about the history of German football. Discovered that Oliver Kahn once played in a penalty shootout against a group of 9 year olds. For every penalty scored by the kids, money was given to a charity. Kahn saved every penalty.

Eric Cantona turned 53 this week, but this moment is arguably greater than anything he ever did on a football pitch.
It’s Eric Cantona’s birthday today. You remember him.
After his ban from English football, he went mental on French telly, told his critics to do one, and even insulted the Pope:
“Je lui pisse au cul.” (I piss on his arse).

A fine player he might have been, but the Man United man was no match for this League of Ireland hero:
A great player he may have been, but put Eric Cantona up against @DundalkFC's Eddie Van Boxtel and there's only one winner.

Speaking of Dundalk, some ingenious marketing popped up in Cork:
Bravo to whoever came up with the idea of putting this outside Turners Cross. Marketing genius. 👏 pic.twitter.com/nvXoMnYj1u
