RB Leipzig's wheel of misfortune: Players could mow pitch or train in tutu as punishment

RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick uses a spinning wheel to determine punishments for players
Ralf Rangnick uses a spinning wheel to determine punishments for players.

As they continue to aspire to Bundesliga domination, RB Leipzing have concocted a novel way of keeping their squad in line.

Rather than fines, the German club have instead installed a "wheel of misfortune" to help determine any punishment that a player might incur.

The spinning wheel is the brainchild of Leipzig coach Ralf Ragnick, who installed it to cut down on transgressions such as players being late, or using their phones during training, or reporting back to training a few kilos overweight.


Jesse Marsch's rumored move to RB Leipzig should be a baby step, not a giant leap

The New York Red Bulls rode an Alex Bono error and heroic display from Luis Robles to a 1-0 victory at Toronto.

As summer continues, the focus in MLS shifts to the opening of the secondary transfer window. Plenty of players arrive and a few leave, with FC Dallas' Mauro Diaz the latest player to depart. But this time there has been a different kind of MLS export: some of the league's managers.

Last month it was Patrick Vieira leaving New York City FC for Ligue 1 side OGC Nice. Now it appears that Vieira's Hudson River rival, the New York Red Bulls' Jesse Marsch, could be following him across the pond....

Naby Keita shows Liverpool fans the skills he's bringing to Anfield

He may have cost a packet, but it looks like Liverpool are getting one heck of a player in Naby Keita.

After all, how many people do you know who can do keepy-uppies and the limbo at the same time?

It certainly looks like RB Leipzig have £50 million's worth of talent right there.

With a deal previously agreed back in August, Keita is due to arrive at Anfield when the transfer window next opens up in summer.

Bundesliga's top-four race will go to the wire beneath Bayern

Dortmund and RB Leipzig clash this weekend in a game that has huge implications on the top-four race.

It's official: the top teams in the Bundesliga have never had it so good. Granted, there's the slight indignation of being only cast as extras in the 28th instalment of the "Bayern: Champions of Germany... Again" franchise. But below the Bavarian behemoths there is more space than ever to carve out a charmed life in the sunshine, too. Three guaranteed starting berths in next season's Champions League offer a consolation prize on an unprecedented scale for the Bundesliga's second-, third- and and...

Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri to get own smoking room at RB Leipzig

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri will be given his own designated smoking area at the Red Bull Arena for the Italian club's Europa League visit to RB Leipzig.

Sarri is reported to smoke 60 cigarettes per day and, when Leipzig host the Serie A leaders on Thursday, the 59-year-old will receive a special welcome gift inside the dressing room.

The Bundesliga side have made a makeshift smokers' lounge in the booth usually used by physiotherapists, and uninstalled all smoke detectors. The extra cost of €1,200...
