Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards has dashed Marc-Vivien Foe's hopes
of a quick move to Old Trafford. The Cameroon midfielder is convinced United
will reopen negotiations for him in the next month even though he is
recovering from a broken leg. Foe was injured during preparations for the
World Cup just days after agreeing terms with Alex Ferguson for a transfer
from French champions Lens.But Edwards was remaining cautious today about
the possibility of Foe joining United, insisting no deal is imminent despite
the player's claims."Nothing will happen in the short term after a player
breaks his leg," said Edwards. "Foe must start playing again before anything
else happens."It also depends on what else happens in the transfer market.
When the manager returns from France we'll sit down and discuss the Foe
situation." United were ready to pay Lens £5.5million for Foe but the French
club were holding out for £8million before he was injured.
Brazilian Link Surprise
United have been linked to a surprise move for Brazilian midfielder Cesar
Sampaio in the Italian press after Alex Ferguson watched him in action
during their 2-1 defeat of Scotland last Wednesday.
The 30-year-old Yokohama Flugels star is a reported target for United,
Arsenal and Paris St.Germain and could be seen as an alternative to injured
Cameroon midfielder Marc-Vivien Foe.
Meanwhile, Patrick Kluivert is again the subject of an enquiry from Roma
amid rumours that Arsenal and United have cooled their interest after his
wage demands and latest show of indiscipline at the World Cup. ]

PAUL Scholes kicked off England's World Cup in sensational style to wipe
away the misery of rioting fans here in Marseille.
The red-haired Manchester United star stepped into Paul Gascoigne's shoes
and scored a thrilling goal in an impressive 2-0 victory over Tunisia.
Ginger Spice was hailed by coach Glenn Hoddle as his man-of-the-match
performance sealed England's first opening game victory in a tournament for
Scholes said: "I felt there was a bit of pressure on me to produce the goods
. . . maybe to make a goal or score one.
"I could have had a hat-trick and I'm disappointed that I didn't get it
because the chances I had were clear-cut and easy. So I was pleased when one
went in at last.
"Paul Ince made a great run and originally I was going to play the ball back
to him. But I mis-controlled it, so I just turned and hit it. Thank God it
"I've had some highlights in my career but that is the biggest so far. Now
I've got to reproduce it in the games coming up.
"I just hope I can get a few more goals here. I didn't play on our tour of
Morocco, so I didn't know what was happening. And I was relieved when I was
told on Saturday I was in the team."
Alan Shearer again opened the scoring and has now scored 14 times in his
last 17 appearances for his country. He celebrated wildly after he headed
England in front just before half-time. Delighted Hoddle hailed his two goal
scorers and praised his team for their impressive opening to the tournament.
Hoddle said: "Paul's finish was world class and the boy is getting better
and better. He's a good lad and I don't think he will get carried away with
"He'll keep his feet on the ground he doesn't like the razzamatazz that
surrounds what he does.
"He wasn't under pressure and I won't put him under any. He is setting a
standard for himself.
"He's a terrific performer and he played a superb role just off our front
"He's one of those who likes to let his boots do the talking.
"As for Alan Shearer, he had one chance and scored. That shows what a world
class player he is. You don't need to create five or six chances when he is
Hoddle was furious at the treatment dished out to Shearer by Tunisia's
"I found it staggering the person marking Alan came off the field without a
booking," he said.
Shearer himself was quick to back strike partner Teddy Sheringham as his
And that could block Michael Owen's path into the England team.
Sheringham was replaced by Owen five minutes from the end. But skipper
Shearer heaped praise on Sheringham, who was desperately close with a
spectacular 25-yard shot in the first half.
"I was pleased with the way Teddy and I teamed up," he said. "I have said
all along we have a terrific partnership and we dropped straight back into
"If the manager wants to split us up that's up to him. We've given him
something to think about.
"We've proved over the years we are successful and the rest is up to the
England goalkeeper David Seaman said: "When the Tunisian lad was clean
through in the opening minutes, I was thinking to myself for a split-second
'Where's everybody gone?'
"But I knew a tackle would come in from somewhere and, sure enough, Sol
Campbell got a vital challenge in.
"It's a great result because now we can focus on our preparation for Romania
next Monday without worrying about other results."

"I can only please one person per day.
Today is not your day.
Tomorrow isn't looking very good either". -- Dogbert

I'M PROUDEST DAD IN BRITAIN
The family of World Cup hero Paul Scholes last night celebrated their son's
proudest moment as England's Man of the Match - with a pint in their local.
Scholes' dad, Stewart, 42, said: "Paul told me that he would make me proud,
but I'm already the proudest dad in Britain. Who wouldn't be after their son
scored a goal like that?
"Knowing that your son is playing for his country is the best feeling in the
world. I can't tell you how proud I am. When Glen Hoddle chose him, Paul
rang his mum and I and told us he was in. It was the best moment of my life.
"Of course he's kicked a ball around since he was a toddler, so I suppose I
should have guessed one day he'd play for his country.
"Paul sees it as a great honour being picked for the squad and I knew he'd
give it everything he's got.
"I can still remember clearly the year his team won the Manchester Catholic
Schools football competition," added Stewart, who lives with his wife Marie,
Paul's mum, in the council house on the Langley estate in Middleton,
Manchester, where Paul grew up.
"I'm brimming over with pride. It's a dream come true.
"When I last spoke to him he said the only black cloud was that his good
friends Nicky Butt and Phil Neville were not going. He's flying his mum and
me over for the match against Colombia, so we're both looking forward to
seeing him in action."
But for all round sportsman Paul football was not the only option.
Stewart, a gas pipe fitter, added: "He was a very good cricketer. If United
hadn't come in for him I'd like to think he would have still played for
England, but at cricket!"
