The best sporting tweets of the week
The European Athletics Championship and the return of the EFL have dominated the sporting headlines across the last week or so.
But there’s been plenty of other action too. Ireland’s women hockey players reached the World Cup Final and Jose Mourinho gave his thoughts on the country’s media.
We’ve rounded it all up in our tweets of the week…

Mourinho channelled his inner Donald Trump and attacked the media…
Jose Mourinho says @ManUtd ‘ready’ for new season. “From what I read + hear it is difficult to believe we finished 2nd. You (media) are capable of making people who finished 2nd look like they got relegated + people who finished below us look like serial winners.”

And finally, Ireland’s Women Hockey team showed the men how it’s done…
When you bring a group of women together who have a common passion, great things can happen. Ireland’s hockey team – no funding – had to “pay their own way” to the Women’s World Cup….and have made it to the final v Spain. Remarkable. Outstanding. ?? ???? pic.twitter.com/AtogKXWy4Q
