Moya to work with fellow ex-No. 1 Nadal

MADRID • Former world No. 1 Carlos Moya is joining Rafael Nadal's coaching team alongside the 14-time Grand Slam champion's long-time coach, his uncle Toni.

"I am very excited to announce that Carlos Moya will join my team immediately and working together with Toni and Francis Roig," said Nadal in a statement yesterday.

Moyes could have changed mind on job

LONDON • David Moyes has said that he might not have taken the job to manage Sunderland if he had known the English Premier League football club could be put up for sale and will have limited funds to invest in the squad.

Owner Ellis Short, who bought Sunderland in 2008, is willing to sell the club for £170 million (S$307 million), according to British media reports. Chief executive Martin Bain also recently said that the club will be unable to significantly strengthen itself in the January transfer window.

"I would have had to have thought a lot more about taking the job if I had known. Sunderland always had an appeal to me, but I would have needed to look at it in a different way," said Moyes.
