Jose Mourinho's reinvention as the nicest guy in football continued in Turkey at the weekend as he checked out Real Madrid's Champions League opponents Galatasaray.

Mourinho, who was gushing in his praise of Manchester United after knocking them out of the tournament in the last round, went head to head with Gala coach Fatih Terim.

But it was all lover-dovey as the pair shared several hugs and pats on the back at Kayserispor's Kadir Has Stadium, where Terim's side won 3-1.

Wesley Sneijder was on the scoresheet for the Turkish table-toppers and he gave Mourinho a smile and a wave.

The Dutchman won the Champions League with Inter Milan under Mourinho three years ago and he said: 'It's great to see him again. The last time I saw him was in the final when we played in 2010, the final against Bayern Munich.

'That was the last time I saw him, so it was a very nice moment when he came to visit us and I am happy to see him again because we had a great time together.

'But I just send him a message that he should be careful because if he is around, I always score.'

Less impressive was another Mourinho old boy as former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba missed a sitter for Galatasaray.

Terim watched Real thump Mallorca 5-2 on Saturday so would have been relieved to see his side put on a show in front of Mourinho, who was at the match with his son.

Burak Yilmaz scored Gala's other two goals and they will travel to the Spanish capital for the first leg on Wednesday, April 3 with the return set for the following Tuesday.

World Twenty20 2012: Akila Dananjaya hit in face with cricket ball

Ouch! Sri Lanka debutant Dananjaya hit in face with cricket ball against New Zealand

Mahamarakkala Kurukulasooriya Patabendige Akila Dananjaya Perera – or Akila, as he's known to his mates – had a debut to remember when Sri Lanka met New Zealand in the Super Eights at the World Twenty20.

In the 12th over of New Zealand's
innings Dananjaya attempted to get his hands on a thump back down the
ground from Kiwi batsman Rob Nicol, but the ball evaded his grasp and
caught him flush on the face.

Ouch: Brendon McCullum immediately checks on Dananjaya after he is hit

Thankfully the 18-year-old – the latest spinner off the production line from the country that gave us Muttiah Muralitharan – was up on his feet after treatment and he was able to complete his over.

He
even went on to have the last laugh as he had Nicol caught in the deep –
adding to the wicket of Martin Guptill that he had taken earlier in the
innings to finish with figures of 2-32.

Dananjaya's variations will make him a
tricky prospect for England, who Sri Lanka meet on Monday, but his
maiden international appearance will be remembered for reasons other
than the two wickets that he took.

Gillingham extended their lead at the top of npower League Two to three points on Saturday afternoon with a 4-0 home win over Bristol Rovers.

The Gills did most of the damage in the first half, going 3-0 up thanks to a Danny Kedwell penalty in the fifth minute, a header from the same player 10 minutes later and Charlie Lee's nodded effort seconds before the interval.

Chris Whelpdale headed in a fourth eight minutes from time for the hosts, who now have 16 points from their opening six league fixtures this term.

At the start of the day they had been a point clear of second-placed Exeter, who drop to fourth after their 1-1 home draw with York, a result they salvaged through John O'Flynn's late equaliser after Michael Coulson had put the Minstermen in front.

The Grecians have been leapfrogged in the table by Port Vale and Fleetwood, who both join them on 13 points after victories on Saturday afternoon.

Vale are up to second with a 3-1 win at Plymouth, who were ahead through Robbie Williams before the away side responded with a Jennison Myrie-Williams penalty and goals from Ashley Vincent and Ben Williamson.

Third-placed Fleetwood, meanwhile, secured their three points right at the death as Andy Mangan's stoppage-time header earned them a 1-0 triumph at home against Northampton, the visitors having been reduced to 10 men in the first half by Danny East's dismissal.

Accrington stay fifth after a 1-1 draw at Dagenham, Peter Murphy ensuring Stanley's point late on by cancelling out Luke Howell's goal for the hosts.

Alex Revell's finish saw Rotherham to a 1-0 home victory over Torquay which saw them move up to sixth, while Bradford advanced into the final play-off berth with a 3-0 home win against rock-bottom Barnet, second-half goals from James Hanson, Alan Connell and Andrew Davies sealing it.

Southend came from behind to beat Cheltenham 3-1 away, the visitors hitting back after Jermaine McGlashan's early goal through Sean Clohessy, Britt Assombalonga and Mark Phillips.

Calvin Zola and Jacques Maghoma notched a brace each as Burton routed Oxford 4-0 at home, while Aldershot and Morecambe drew 0-0.

Elsewhere, Rochdale defeated Wimbledon 2-1 away, Dele Adebola and Bobby Grant putting the visitors in charge in the first half – with visiting striker Jack Midson being shown a red card between the two goals – before Luke Moore's late reply, and Chesterfield won 3-1 at home against Wycombe.

Wanderers had Leon Johnson sent off after only 10 minutes and the hosts soon took advantage, Chris Atkinson and Jack Lester swiftly netting. A Neal Trotman own-goal gave Wycombe hope, but Sam Hird then added Chesterfield's third.

West Brom manager Steve Clarke watched his side waste a number of chances as they played out a goalless draw against Barnsley at Oakwell.

Despite dominating proceedings the Baggies were unable to make their openings count, with Shane Long hitting the post in the second half with a header.

Clarke can take some consolation from the fact Zoltan Gera made his first start in eight months as he continues his comeback from a knee injury.

Southampton's pre-season fixture at St Mary's ended in a 1-0 defeat to Eredivisie champions Ajax.

Aras Ozbiliz's goal separated the two sides, the young winger finding the target after 64 minutes with a low strike.

Norwich enjoyed a better result in their friendly at Peterborough, beating the London Road outfit 2-0.

Steve Morison gave the Canaries the lead after 32 minutes and James Vaughan wrapped up the scoring four minutes from time.

The second consecutive clean sheet will have pleased Chris Hughton.

Elsewhere, Fulham beat Wycombe 3-0, with goals from new boy Mladen Petric, Bryan Ruiz and Steve Sidwell.
