Fenerbahce midfielder Mehmet Topal and a youth player are
lucky to escape unscathed after shots were fired at their vehicle on Tuesday.

Police reports filed that it was an accident, and told media
that it was not a murder attempt.

It comes as a shock after the Fenerbahce team bus was shot
at multiple times on it’s way to Trabzon airport in April.

“Our players were fortunate to be travelling in a vehicle
with bulletproof glass,” Fenerbahce said in a full statement.

The Turkish Football Federation has cancelled all games for
a week due to the unresolved investigation.

Alessio Romagnoli has angered his former club AS Roma after
posting a photo in a Lazio shirt.

Fans are suggesting that this could be his main reason for departing
to AC Milan this season.

His Lazio photo has gone viral on the web and rival Roma
fans are furious.

Il Tempo reports that the player has forever been a fan of
the Biancocolesti and his social media activity is proof of that. 

The supporter
of the Biancocelesti has plenty of his posts on social media to provide support
for that. The talented defender always said his idol to be Lazio icon
Alessandro Nesta.

PAUL SCHOLES MISSING FOOTBALL

Ex Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes misses football
and is willing to return to the game after two years.

Whether his involvement is in management remains to be seen,
but there’s no doubt we will be seeing more of Paul Scholes in the future.

"I love football. It is difficult not to be
around,” he said.

“I’ve not been involved now properly for two
years.”

“It is probably what I miss most really, when you see
teams getting ready for a Saturday afternoon – you look at the results all the
time and you are not involved.

"I don’t think you can close anything off really – if
the right opportunity was there for me and I fancied it, I’d do it.”

The Manchester United legend made more than 700 appearances
for the Red Devils between 1993 and 2013.
