Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has told Manchester United to forget about signing his star centre-forward Robert Lewandowski.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been heavily linked with a move for the Poland international and the Bundesliga champions’ boss admitted there would be interest, but was confident of holding on to his top scorer.

Interim Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez has confirmed he is unlikely to recall on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku to solve his attacking crisis.

Benitez acknowledged the young Belgian had been playing well, but said it would be better for his long-term development to stay at West Brom.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger angrily dismissed reports his assistant Steve Bould berated the players following their loss to Swansea City on Saturday.

The Frenchman also claimed it has become fashionable to knock the Gunners lately and was confident his side would find their best form again soon.

Former Tottenham Hotspur star David Ginola has defended current White Hart Lane favourite Gareth Bale over the criticism he has received for diving.

The French winger claimed this reputation was unfair and that it would eventually stifle his attacking instincts if it continued.

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has admitted that his team-mate Mario Balotelli can be frustrating at times, stating that “sometimes you want to kill him”.

However, Zabaleta insists the unpredictable Italian was a good person, as well as a top class player.
