  1. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching staff have signed new contracts until 2023. The Argentine has guided Spurs to three successive top-three finishes in the Premier League, winning 121 of his 218 games since taking charge in May 2014. Pochettino, who had three years remaining on his current contract, has agreed to a two-year extension, as did first-team coaches Jesus Perez, Miguel D'Agostino and Toni Jimenez. "I am honoured to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the club's history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium," said the 46-year-old. "This is just one of the factors that makes this one of the most exciting jobs in world football and we are already making plans to ensure we continue to build on the great work that everyone has contributed to over the past four years. "[Chairman] Daniel [Levy] and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club. We both share the same philosophies to achieve long-term, sustainable success. "This is a special club - we always strive to be creative in the way we work both on and off the pitch and will continue to stick to our principles in order to achieve the success this club deserves."

  2. Departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has refused to rule out a potential move to Manchester United. The 35-year-old announced earlier this month that he would be leaving the Etihad after eight years with the club, but does not want to hang up his boots yet. In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Toure has not ruled out a move to local rivals United, who are looking to replace the experience of Michael Carrick in the middle of the park. When asked about the retiring midfielder, Toure said: "Yeah, he just left. "Let's see, let's see. I don't rule big teams out. The big teams are very important for me. What they want to achieve, the way they want to go, for me is very important. "I want to go somewhere I can win and achieve. It's going to be hard one day to play against City, but I have to do that. It is part of my job. "I've been playing football for such a long time, I'm no good in the office or something else. I am good in football. "To see myself at a different club is going to be difficult. I have been such a big part of City for such a long time now. "I just want to say that definitely I will continue to play at a high level - Champions League or Europa League. "I want to play two more years. They have to be in the higher level and then I can do something else."

    Arsenal appoint Unai Emery as new manager

    Arsenal have confirmed the appointment of Unai Emery as the club’s new manager. The 46-year-old joins the Gunners having left French champions Paris Saint-Germain after guiding them to the Ligue 1 title. Emery also won four domestic cups with the French giants, having previously guided Sevilla to three successive Europa League triumphs. The Spaniard succeeds Arsene Wenger, who left the club at the end of last season after 22 years in charge. Emery told Arsenal's official website: "I am thrilled to be joining one of the great clubs in the game. "Arsenal is known and loved throughout the world for its style of play, its commitment to young players, the fantastic stadium, the way the club is run. I'm very excited to be given the responsibility to start this important new chapter in Arsenal's history. "I have met Stan and Josh Kroenke and it's clear they have great ambitions for the club and are committed to bringing future success. I'm excited about what we can do together and I look forward to giving everyone who loves Arsenal some special moments and memories."

  4. West Ham have confirmed the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager on a three-year deal. The 64-year-old, who has previously enjoyed spells in charge of Real Madrid and Manchester City, left his role with Hebei China Fortune over the weekend to join the Hammers. Pellegrini will become the highest-paid manager in the club's history, believed to be in line to earn around £7m a year, although he will be taking a significant pay cut having earned around £16m a year in China. West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan said: "I am delighted to welcome Manuel Pellegrini to West Ham United. He is one of the world's most respected football coaches and we look forward to working with him. "It was important that we appointed someone with knowledge and experience of the Premier League, who already has an understanding - not only of the teams and players we face - but of West Ham United and our ambitions. "Manuel brings a reputation for attacking football and getting the best out of his players. We believe he will attract new talent to the London Stadium as well as improving the current squad. "Above all, he is a winner, who knows what it takes to succeed at the highest level and is driven to continue that success. "Manuel is the first West Ham United manager to have a Premier League title on his CV, and we believe that his experience, quality and proven record of taking teams forward quickly will ensure that he is successful here. "We have listened to fans who asked us to be ambitious. We hope they agree it is an exciting appointment. "Manuel will shortly announce the names of the new staff he will bring in and he will then get down to shaping the squad he wants. We all wish him the very best of luck."

  5. Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has stressed that their summer recruitment will be crucial in order to avoid compromising their "winning formula". After Pep Guardiola, who signed a new three-year deal on Thursday, led City to a record-breaking Premier League and EFL Cup-double this season, Al Mubarak insists the club will not rest on their success. "In terms of improving the squad, we have had a lot of learning in the past. Today, we have a superbly high-quality squad," Al Mubarak told City TV. "You don't get to 100 points without a full, high-quality squad, which is what we have. Any additions have to improve the squad. "This is my biggest learning from the years of chairing this club. When winning, bringing in new players is a very important decision because you have a winning formula that has just won. "Whatever you can add, it has to be a decision that you don't take very lightly at all. You have to bring in players that will strengthen, improve and add competition into the squad - that is key. "We have real experiences, real learnings from how we managed our seasons following the last two times we won the league. "We have worked very hard over the last couple of years to build this squad - not only just for this season but for many seasons to come. This is a young squad. "Many of our most talented players are under the age of 26. Mine and the management's expectation, and certainly Pep's, is that this team will continue to improve. "We have a manager in Pep that is relentless. There is not going to be any contentment here or any relaxation - that I can assure you. "I have no doubt that this summer we are going to come back, be hungry, more aggressive and we are going to continue to improve."

  6. Jurgen Klinsmann has revealed that it is unlikely he will return to the Premier League as a manager. The former Germany international spent two seasons in the top flight of English football with Tottenham Hotspur, where he scored 21 goals in 41 appearances. As a manager, Klinsmann was in charge of the United States national team for five years, but he was sacked by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) in November 2016 after World Cup qualifying defeats to Mexico and Costa Rica. "In football you never know what happens overnight," the 53-year-old told Sky Sports. "I never thought I'd coach Bayern Munich or Germany or the United States, so you have to always be open to any sorts of ideas. "But the fact is that living in the United States for 20 years having the family there, I have a daughter - she has two years more in high school. "For us as a family as of today it's more likely that I take over another national team possibly after the World Cup than going into club management."

  7. Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has revealed he refused to leave Anfield during Brendan Rodgers's spell in charge of the club despite being told he could do so. Speaking ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26, Henderson revealed how he shed tears when he was told he would be allowed to leave Liverpool in a swap deal for then-Fulham forward Clint Dempsey in the summer of 2012. The 27-year-old, who has since established himself as a key player in Jurgen Klopp's side, opened up on his reaction to hearing he would be allowed to leave a few hours before a Europa League tie against Hearts. He told the Daily Mail: "Brendan [Rodgers] called me in and said 'listen, this is the offer' and he asked me what I thought. "It implied to me that he would let me leave and it was up to me. I went back to my room. I shed a few tears. I ended up crying a little bit because it hurt so much. I had the game that night to think about it as well. "I spoke to my agent and told him what had happened and I said I didn't want to go. I wanted to stay and fight and try and improve and try to prove the manager wrong. My agent agreed. I spoke to my dad. He was gutted but he backed my decision to stay and fight. "From that point, I just kept my head down. I knew I wouldn't get as much game time as I wanted but I still had faith. I was young enough to get my head down, keep working hard, do my extra bits and prove them wrong and I feel I managed to do that by the time Brendan left. "There are always those moments in football - and life in general - which can decide the path and the route you go down. For me it was never an option to leave."

    Thibaut Courtois unsure of Chelsea future

    Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has stressed that he does not yet know which club he will be at next season. The Belgium international played a key role at Wembley on Saturday as the Blues beat Manchester United 1-0 to secure silverware. Courtois continues to be linked with Real Madrid, however, and refused to commit himself to Chelsea in the wake of Saturday's victory. "We'll see what is going to happen after the World Cup," Courtois told Sky Sports. "Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year." With his contract soon running out, the 26-year-old hinted that he might be more inclined to stay at Stamford Bridge if some money is spent in the summer. Asked if Chelsea need to add players in order to challenge for the title, Courtois said: "Yes, I think so. "I think especially if you see how City and United are spending and working. "I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same - obviously within the limits of what's possible as well. "I think that the transfer market has gone pretty crazy. Nowadays, you pay £80m for a defender I think - that's crazy figures. "We'll see what's going on and I am sure the board will do what needs to be done."

  9. Former Real Madrid player and director of football Predrag Mijatovic has urged the his former side not to "go crazy" over Mohamed Salah. The Egypt international has impressed in his first season at Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and being named Premier League Player of the Year. His form since moving from Roma is rumoured to have caught the interest of Madrid, the team he will face in Kiev next Saturday. "[Salah] has all the qualities that football requires today. But you also have to say that he is a player who has had a very strange trajectory," Mijatovic told AS. "I do not know if Madrid should go crazy for him at this moment because they have important young players, like [Marco] Asensio or Isco, with similar characteristics. And we do not know what will happen to Bale. "I do not know what Salah's situation is like, but now he is not a player for whom I would go crazy. You do not know how he would adapt. Madrid is different, a club where it is difficult to succeed."

  10. Former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires says he is interested in helping whoever succeeds Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium. Pires, who won two Premier League titles and two FA Cups with the Gunners, regularly joined his fellow Frenchman in coaching the first team. Reports suggest Mikel Arteta has agreed a deal in principle to take over the reins at Arsenal after Massimiliano Allegri announced that he would stay on at Juventus. Speaking to The Mirror, Pires said: "If the next manager wants my help, I will say yes. "I want to help Arsenal and I want to help the new manager. I want to be on the staff. I think I can help." Pires believes Arteta would be a good fit to replace Wenger as he understands the philosophy of the club. "I would agree with the appointment of Mikel Arteta," the Frenchman said. "He knows the club, he used to play for Arsenal and he knows the Arsenal philosophy. "So yes, he has a good profile to be manager of Arsenal."

  11. Championship-bound West Bromwich Albion have appointed Darren Moore as their new manager on a permanent basis. The former Baggies defender led the club on an unbeaten run in April as caretaker manager with three wins and two draws following Alan Pardew's departure. Indeed, Moore was named Premier League manager of the month for April, following wins over Manchester United, Tottenham, Newcastle and a draw with Liverpool. Despite his brave efforts, Moore was unable to save Albion, who were 10 points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League when he took over, but has nonetheless been entrusted with the reins on a permanent basis. "I am obviously extremely proud to accept this role and also extremely excited. We have a big summer ahead of us, a lot of hard work we need to get in now," Moore told the club website. "I'm going all out to try and get those plans and personnel in place to make sure we've got everything ready. And we need to be because this is a tough league packed with great clubs. "But what an opportunity for us to move the club in the right direction."

  12. Massimiliano Allegri has hinted that he will be staying at Juventus amid speculation linking him with Arsenal.

It's in Juve's DNA to be competitive on all fronts. "It's always our objective to work hard to create Juventus history.

Club chairman Huw Jenkins said: "We'd like to put on record our thanks to Carlos for his enthusiasm, hard work and commitment since arriving at the club in December.

The Spaniard, whose new contract expires in 2021, had one year left to run on his previous deal which he signed upon arrival from Bayern Munich in June 2016. Reflecting on the contract extension, Guardiola said: “I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here. I enjoy working with our players every day and we will try to do our best together in the coming years. "As a manager, you have to feel good to be with the players – and I feel good. I will focus on the desire of my players to become a better team and every day that’s what I will try to do – to improve on the pitch and improve our players. "We have a young squad with an average age of 23 and we want to keep taking steps forward and maintain the levels we’ve achieved this season.” The club’s chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak added: “We are delighted to announce the extension of Pep’s contract through to 2021. "In his two seasons with us, he has fostered an incredible spirit within the squad and significantly contributed to our progress both on and off the field. "In doing so he has embodied the passion and commitment we all have for the club.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Football Manics by signing up for FREE to the website, visiting the forum and joining the chat with fellow football fans.
  15. Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that Mikel Arteta has all the qualities needed to manage the club. The Spaniard is the leading candidate to succeed Wenger according to multiple media outlets and, if appointed, he would be handed a transfer budget in the region of £50m this summer. Arsenal's hierarchy, who are responsible for choosing the new manager, are also understood to have held talks with Arteta on Thursday. Wenger has backed his former captain to replace him in the Emirates Stadium dugout, telling beIN Sports: "He has all the qualities to do the job, yes and I think as well he is one of the favourites. "He was a leader, and he has a good passion for the game and he knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club and he was captain of the club. Why not?" Arteta has only served as a coach at Manchester City under Pep Guardiola so far, but Wenger insists that Arsenal have experienced coaching personnel to guide the Spanish manager if he needs it. Wenger continued: "I left a lot of experience behind me, people who were with me like Steve Bould who has six years experience, and Jens Lehmann too. "He has been an assistant of Guardiola as well, so overall I think he has the qualities."

  16. Everton have appointed former PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands as their director of football. The 56-year-old Dutchman has replaced former Leicester City chief scout Steve Walsh, who took the role at Goodison Park in July 2016 and has now left. Brands has a reputation for developing players and was seen as an integral part of PSV's run of three Eredivisie titles in the last four seasons. He had joined PSV in 2010 after successful spells with RKC Waalwijk and AZ Alkmaar, where he worked alongside Louis van Gaal. "It is a privilege to be joining Everton as Director of Football and I am incredibly excited to take on this challenge," said Brands. "The fantastic passion of the fans for their club, the magnificent history of the club over the years and the ambition and purpose we have as people tasked with driving the club forward all mean that we need to be competing for honours against the Premier League elite. It is no straightforward challenge but this must be our motivation each and every day. "I am looking forward to working with Farhad Moshiri and Chairman Bill Kenwright, whom I thank for entrusting me with this role and responsibility, and I am also looking forward to working with the Board of Directors and with our new CEO, Denise Barrett-Baxendale. I know we have very committed people here who want only the best for Everton. "It is only a challenge such as this which could have persuaded me to leave PSV where I am indebted to the many people whose collective effort led to some great achievements. Now we will look to build something really strong and lasting here at Everton."

  17. Manager David Moyes has left West Ham after just over six months in charge. The 55-year-old took over from Slaven Bilic on a short-term contract in November with the club in the Premier League relegation zone. Moyes recorded nine wins and 10 draws from 31 games as West Ham secured safety with two games to spare and finished 13th. "When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future," said West Ham joint-chairman David Sullivan. "We feel that it is right to move in a different direction. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next 10 days." Moyes' assistants Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also left with immediate effect.

  18. Eden Hazard has challenged Chelsea to match his ambition by signing "good" players if he is to extend his contract soon. The 27-year-old is out of contract in 2020 and has been linked with a move away from the club during a season in which he says the Blues have been "bad". Asked what would persuade him to extend his deal, Hazard said: "I'm waiting for new players next season. I want good players because I want to win the Premier League next season. “We are Chelsea and we need a trophy at the end of the season and, at the moment, we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League, so this season has been bad. Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy. So we will give everything. “I don’t know [why it has been so bad this season]. It’s always hard after when you win the league. We saw that two years ago. "This season was not good but you know – this is Chelsea. You never know what’s happening. But, no, I think this year we dropped too many points at Stamford Bridge. In this condition you can’t be in the top four, so it’s up to us now to save the season with the FA Cup. “We’ve had bad games, but also played a fantastic game against Liverpool recently, so I hope for Saturday the boys will be ready like we were against Liverpool last week. If we play all together, we can do something, especially against Manchester United.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Football Manics by signing up for FREE to the website, visiting the forum and joining the chat with fellow football fans.

    Everton part company with Sam Allardyce

    Everton have parted company with Sam Allardyce. The 63-year-old signed a contract until June 2019 when he took over in November following the sacking of Ronald Koeman. Everton, who were 13th in the Premier League when Allardyce arrived, finished the season in eighth, but the Toffees fanbase never took to the man. Everton's chief executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: “On behalf of the chairman, board of directors and Mr Moshiri, I’d like to thank Sam for the job he has done at Everton over the last seven months. "Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that. “However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately. "Again, we’d like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sam for his work with us over the last few months and wish him well for the future.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Football Manics by signing up for FREE to the website, visiting the forum and joining the chat with fellow football fans.

"I'm delighted to have extended my time with the club, and I would like to thank the chairman, the board, my staff and everyone at the club, including our fans, for the support we've had in achieving our aims," said Hughton.

  21. Yohan Cabaye has yet to commit his future to Crystal Palace despite insisting he is happy at the club. The midfielder's contract expires this summer, and while manager Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to retain him, he also expects him to receive offers from elsewhere. Cabaye has been a regular feature in Roy Hodgson's starting line-up this season, helping Palace secure Premier League safety with four wins in their final five matches. Palace, who will see on-loan midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek return to parent club Chelsea and face the threat of increasing interest in Wilfried Zaha, want to tie Cabaye down before he receives offers from elsewhere. The 32-year-old told Palace's official website: "I don't know what the future holds. It was a hard, tough season so I will have a chat with my agent, the club and the chairman. "I have no stress about my future. I've had three fantastic seasons here, I love the club and my life in London is perfect, so I will see. "The fans are brilliant and I want to thank them once again. Since my first day here, they have been fantastic with me and I've tried to give them back their support. "It's special to play here; the place is rocking every weekend, so us finishing 11th is for them. I hope the future can be even better for them."

  25. Everton manager Sam Allardyce has admitted that he can no longer be confident of his future at the club. The Toffees ended their Premier League season with a 3-1 defeat at West Ham United, which saw both sets of fans mercilessly boo the 63-year-old. Speaking after the game, Allardyce claimed that an eighth-placed finish is a good result considering Everton's early-season struggles, but admitted that he will seek clarity over his future next week. "The players picked up the mantle immediately and started to say 'we need to get Everton out of the position we're in'," Allardyce told reporters. "I think you're there to guide them tactically and make them as fit as they possibly can be and try to give them the right direction. "The players' efforts from day one to now have been very good and we've been sitting in the top half for many weeks now. "At one stage we looked like pushing Burnley. Eighth is a good finish from where we were at the beginning. "Confident (over my future)? I can't quite say after all the rumours I'm reading in the paper because generally there's something and there's no smoke without fire, but I'll wait and see when we meet up next week, or this week actually."
