Moaning Manager of the Day

I hope to make this a daily award during the Finals themselves, but the inaugural winner of the 'Moaning Manager of the Day' is one Marcello Lippi of Italy, who complained last night after Italy's 1-1 draw with Switzerland that the Swiss side was playing far too competitive football.

Lippi said: "We came here for a friendly but we met a team who wanted something more...We wanted to verify the condition of a few players but found a different kind of atmosphere and had to adapt...."

The Swiss Manager, unfortunately, wasn't able to comment on this but I'm sure he would have been shocked and embarrassed by his failure to realise that the match should have been all about Lippi checking the condition of some of his players and nothing to do with Switzerland's own World Cup preparations.
