Sir Alex Ferguson received another honour on Monday when the former Manchester United manager had a road named in his honour.

There is now a 'Sir Alex Ferguson Way' leading to Old Trafford, and the 71-year-old thanked family, friends and supporters at the official unveiling.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke is expected to come under fire at Thursday's AGM after failing to schedule a single meeting with fans since buying the club.

Kroenke promised when he became majority shareholder that meeting with supporters would be a 'priority', but he has failed to do so for over two years.

Jose Mourinho has become something of a fashion icon during his time as a manager, and has now offered an insight into his thought processes when getting dressed on matchday.

The Chelsea boss says he likes to 'dress very comfortably but keep elements of style', and has described his look as 'discreet'.

Florentino Perez claims Spanish newspaper Marca have targeted him personally as the fallout over Gareth Bale's transfer to Real Madrid continues.

Bale has struggled with injury since his move from Tottenham, and Perez says suggestions he knew about the player's fitness concerns before he arrived in Madrid are 'totally false'.

Luis Felipe Scolari has dismissed recent suggestions that Neymar's move to Barcelona has created difficulties within the squad.

Neymar joined Barcelona for €60 million in the summer transfer window, and Scolari believes the player made the right choice to leave Santos.

Manchester City have been handed fitness boosts over star duo Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure.

Aguero was rested for Argentina's World Cup qualifier, meaning he returns fully fit, while Toure was back in Manchester on Monday to begin full training.
