Evening Report: November 29
Arsene Wenger, Cesc Fabregas, Jose Mourinho, Ryan Giggs and more...
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists there should be no concerns over a delay in signing a new contract at the club.
The 64-year-old Gunners boss, who is the longest-serving manager in English football, has been offered an extension to his current Emirates Stadium deal, which expires at the end of the season.
Jose Mourinho insists Chelsea will not sign a striker in January and denied reports of a move for Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao.
Mourinho is expected to freshen up his squad in the New Year and has also been linked with Porto striker Jackson Martinez, but the Portuguese coach insists he's satisfied with his forward options.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that defender Matija Nastasic is facing a three-week lay-off with a calf injury.
Nastasic sat out the midweek Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen after being withdrawn at half-time in last Sunday's 6-0 Premier League thrashing of Tottenham.
Ryan Giggs has dismissed the relevance of age to his career, as the Manchester United legend celebrates his 40th birthday today.
The Welshman remains an integral member of United's playing ranks, despite also taking up a coaching role in the summer following David Moyes' appointment.
Gylfi Sigurdsson says Tottenham will be fired up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.
Spurs went some way to bouncing back from their 6-0 mauling by Manchester City last weekend with a 2-0 win at freezing cold Tromso in Norway in the Europa League on Thursday.
And finally, Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas has hailed Pep Guardiola as a "visionary" coach, but says the time was right to employ new methods under new boss Gerardo Martino.
The Blaugrana have sought to vary the 'tiki-taka' approach preferred by Guardiola during his four years in charge at Camp Nou this season, but suffered their first defeat of the campaign against Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday.
