Hooligan's Daily: Mourinho complains after fielding weak sides in Premier League

Yesterday's Scores
Premier League
Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Manchester United continues to not give a rat's ass about the remaining Premier League season. Jose Mourinho, who once said he would never want to win the Europa League, is putting all his eggs in Europe's secondary basket in the hopes of taking the back way into the Champions League next year. Mourinho has talked about his lack of effort in the lineup in his typical fashion. He's mad that his final game of the season wasn't bumped up to Saturday to better accomodate United playing in the final. He hopes the fans and pundits "don't kill him" when they see the lineup for Sunday's meaningless match against Crystal Palace. He's complaining about things he deals with all the time throughout the course of the season. He's clearly mad.

La Liga
Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid
(Guidetti 69')-(Ronaldo 10', 48', Benzema 70', Kroos 88')

Real Madrid reclaim the top spot in Spain, but they still need at least a point in Sunday's finale on the road against Malaga. That shouldn't be too much to ask. Barcelona holds the tiebreakers over them and would win the title if they take down Eibar and Real Madrid falls.

Coppa Italia- Final
Juventus 2-0 Lazio
(Alves 12', Bonucci 24')

Juventus keep their treble hopes alive with a comfortable Coppa Italia win. Their Serie A championship should be wrapped up this weekend. Real Madrid in the Champions League Final is the only thing standing in the way of them winning every major trophy available this season.

Ligue 1
AS Monaco 2-0 St. Etienne
(Mbappe 19', Germain 90+3')

AS Monaco officially clinch their first French title since 2000.

Headlines
The FA has approved a new procedure to issue retrospective punishment for diving using video review. A former player, manager, and referee will review potential incidents of simulation and dish out a two game suspension if they unanimously agree that a dive happened. This is similar to the review system used for red card offenses missed by the match officials.
