Arsenal will this summer become the first Premier League team to play in Vietnam after finalising a pre-season friendly.

Club officials first held talks over a visit to the country back in March, and details of the game have now been announced, with a fixture against the Vietnam national team scheduled for July 17.

David Bernstein has confirmed that Chelsea captain John Terry has not spoken to the FA about coming out of international retirement.

Terry quit the national side in September after the FA opened up a disciplinary case against him for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, and reports circulated two weeks ago suggesting that he hoped to come back to the England fold this summer.

Manchester City defender Micah Richards says he would like to stay at the club for the rest of his career.

Richards has endured an injury-ravaged season after suffering a serious knee problem in October and only returned from five months out against FA Cup final opponents Wigan Athletic in April.

Javier Hernandez has become the first current Manchester United player to pay full tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Mexican striker told reporters in his home country he considers it "a blessing" to have worked with English football's most successful manager, who this week announced he'll retire at the end of the season after over 26 years in charge.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor reflected on his outstanding display against Chelsea last night, insisting he is "giving everything" for the club.

The Togolese star produced a man of the match performance in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, including a contender for goal of the season.

And finally, Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano resumed training on Wednesday after five weeks on the sidelines with knee ligament damage.

The Argentina international, who sustained the injury in the Champions League clash at Paris St Germain on April 2nd, took part in some of the squad session.
