Falcao closing on return

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim expects Colombia striker Radamel Falcao to make his long-awaited comeback from injury at the Emirates Stadium next weekend.

Falcao was ruled out of the rest of the 2013-14 season and subsequently missed the World Cup finals in Brazil after suffering extensive knee ligament damage in January.

The 28-year-old has spent the summer stepping up his recovery and looks set to run out for Monaco for the first time in six months when they tackle Valencia - and then potentially either Arsenal or Benfica - at the Emirates Cup tournament, which takes place over the weekend of August 2-3.

Pep has a job for life at Bayern

Pep Guardiola has been told he has a job for life at Bayern Munich, says club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Bayern are never going to sack Pep Guardiola, I can even put that in writing for you.

We have two perfect years behind us, won eight titles and some of our players have even put the cherry on top with the World Cup," he added.

And now we will continue setting records by being better than we've ever been after a World Cup.
