Jose Mourinho has won his first major power battle at Manchester United - after resisting pressure to hand Ryan Giggs a prominent role in his coaching set-up at Old Trafford.

Our Sunday World back page reveals the inside story on the battle that has been raging since Mourinho's appointment as United manager last month, with pressure from the club'd old guard to keep Old Trafford legend Giggs involved in a high profile position.

That story came to an end on Saturday, with United confirming the Welshman would leave the club after a 29-year association as he agreed a severance package to bring an end to his contact.

The Sunday World back page also features a story on Juan Mata's imminent exit from United, as the Mourinho era gathers momentum with marquee signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Kevin Doyle and John Aldridge offer up exclusive columns in this week's Sunday World, as our post-Euro 2016 focus switches to the big GAA battles on the horizon.
