13 things we loved this weekend: Guerreiro, Gazza, Van Dijk & more
Elite European football returned this weekend as Borussia Dortmund stole the show with a resounding 4-0 victory over Schalke in the Revierderby.
Elsewhere, a team in South Korea were caught out using sex dolls to fill their stadium (yes, really), and Gazza provided the quote of 2020.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Will someone please just close him down?
Great defending, terrible finishing.
Raphaël Guerreiro’s 2nd goal of the match and Borussia Dortmund’s 4th.
A trivela finish after a great 1-2, a certain international team-mate of his would be very happy with that finish!

The best thing we’ve read in a long time.
🗣| Paul Gascoigne:
“Alex Ferguson says it would have been different if I had signed for United. Well, Rio did a runner from a drug test. Cantona two-footed some c*nt. Rooney shagged a fuc*king granny. And Giggs shagged his brother’s fuc*ing wife.”

On a completely separate note, how is your dad?
2016 K League winners FC Seoul inadvertently used sex dolls rather than fashion mannequins to help fill empty stands this weekend. The club has apologised. Both the club and the supplier are pointing fingers at others. (It’s not just COVID-19 you need to avoid catching!) #kleague pic.twitter.com/59rSU8XxYL

Virgil van Dijk
A good bloke.
Virgil Van Dijk is raising money for his former side Groningen by holding a raffle for four season tickets he has bought from the club for the upcoming season after the finances of the club took a hit due to the cancellation of the Eredivisie.
Top gesture Virg 👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/ruZDdk3LO0
