The Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) has fined Sevilla striker Frederic Kanoute for uncovering a T-shirt with the word "Palestine" written on it in several languages after he scored in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Deportivo Coruna in the King's Cup. The referee booked Kanoute for the gesture and the RFEF said in a statement it had fined the Mali international, who is a Muslim, an unspecified amount. The RFEF also said it had suspended Valencia defender Miguel Monteira for three matches following his aggressive reaction toward match officials after his sending-off in Wednesday's 1-1 King's Cup draw with Racing Santander. Soccer - Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is looking forward to returning to England to watch Champions League last-16 opponents Manchester United play his former club Chelsea on Sunday. "I must study them deeply. I am going to see them on Sunday because it is a good occasion to see them in a stadium, which gives a better all-round picture than on TV," the Portuguese told reporters. "I've not gone back there (since leaving Chelsea), not even to go shopping or see my house. I will feel the atmosphere again at the game, it will be emotional."
