Good morning, America. It's May 23, 2016. Welcome to the VICE Sports World News Roundup. Be sure to stop by every morning for more headlines from around the world.

Manchester United has reportedly fired Louis Van Gaal, although it has yet to make a formal announcement as of this writing. The club is expected to unveil Jose Mourinho as the new manager tomorrow. Rumor has it Ryan Giggs will also leave.

The news comes just days after Manchester United won the FA Cup, beating Crystal Palace 2-1 in extra time.

Other European cup news: Barcelona won the Copa del Rey. In Germany, Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund on penalties after a 0-0 draw. Hibernian won the Scottish Cup, beating Rangers in the process. Hibs had appeared in and lost ten finals since last lifting the Cup, in 1902.

Interestingly, Mats Hummels—who will join Bayern next season—was withdrawn from the match after 78 minutes, and a very angry Thomas Tuschl, when asked why, said only that Hummels could have "done better."

Luis Suarez picked up a hamstring injury in the Copa del Rey. It could keep him out of the Copa America. He was not happy.

The Preakness happened, and Exaggerator won. A bunch of other horses got hurt and killed.

The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Golden State Wariors by 28 points yesterday. It's hard not to read that and make a stank face.
