Soccer-Vietnam club make last 16 despite match-fixing admission [Yahoo! Sports: April 23, 2014, 2:55 am]
By Patrick Johnston April 23 (Reuters) - Vissai Ninh Binh, who quit the Vietnam top flight over a match-fixing scandal in the AFC Cup, took advantage of a slow moving investigation into the matter to book a place in last 16 of the tournament as Group G winners on Tuesday. Earlier this month, 11 players of the Vietnam Cup winners told police they received around 800 million dong ($37,900) for fixing a March 18 AFC Cup match against Malaysia's Kelantan in which they came from 2-1 down to win 3-2. The team were withdrawn from the Vietnam top flight amid fears domestic games could also have been fixed, but they were allowed to carry on their commitments in Asia's second tier continental competition. Asked why Ninh Binh were granted the green light to continue, tournament organisers the Asian Football Confederation told Reuters they would wait for a "detailed investigation report from the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) before AFC can take any action".

Soccer-Struggling Nuremberg sack coach Verbeek [Yahoo! Sports: April 23, 2014, 2:55 am]
Bundesliga strugglers Nuremberg sacked coach Gertjan Verbeek on Wednesday, hoping a late change at the top will help the former champions stave off relegation with just three games remaining in the season. The 51-year-old Dutchman took over last October but managed just five wins in 22 matches as Nuremberg slumped to 17th place, one point above last-placed Eintracht Braunschweig and one behind Hamburg SV, who occupy the relegation playoff spot. "We are convinced that we can release something within the team with this decision," Nuremberg sporting director Martin Bader said in a statement.

United must move fast with vital window looming [Yahoo! Sports: April 22, 2014, 7:04 pm]
By Ed Osmond LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester United must move quickly to appoint a new manager and give him maximum time to operate in what will be a critical transfer window for the club.

Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal is the favorite and he has the necessary experience and record of success. Carlo Ancelotti of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund's Juergen Klopp have also been linked with the job, although the German appeared to rule himself out of contention on Tuesday.
