Manchester City have publicly apologised after Carlos Tevez was seen holding up a 'RIP Fergie' banner at the club's victory parade on Monday.

City said the Argentinian has made a "serious error of judgement", with Tevez claiming he "did not mean any disrespect to Sir Alex Ferguson".

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has emerged as the early favourite to succeed Alex McLeish at Aston Villa, with Paul Lambert also in the frame.

Elsewhere, Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs will continue playing at United until at least the end of next season.
