Tottenham: Liverpool the visitors for first game at new stadium

Tottenham's first game in their new stadium will be against Liverpool on the weekend of 15-16 September. Spurs' new ground is close to completion but will not be ready for the start of the Premier League season. They will play promoted Fulham at Wembley in their first home game of the season on the weekend of 18-19 August. "We discussed the timings and ability to play away games and I think it is a good solution to have an earlier home game," said boss Mauricio Pochettino. "Wembley was great for us last season and we are even more used to that than we are the new stadium." This is first time a club has been allowed to play home games at two venues in the same season. Spurs had been due to host Watford on 1 September, but the Hornets agreed to swap the fixture's venue to Vicarage Road. Their new

Alderweireld open to Tottenham stay despite Man Utd rumours

he Belgian centre-back has attracted interest from Manchester United but he says he could yet remain at Spurs beyond the close-season Toby Alderweireld has made it clear he is open to the possibility of staying at Tottenham despite stories linking him with a move. The Belgium international featured just 14 times in the Premier League last season, with his campaign disrupted by suggestions of a contract stalemate as well as hamstring and thigh injuries. Alderweireld has two years left on his current deal, but the uncertainty around an extension has led to links with Manchester United. Jose Mourinho's side are said to have already declared their interest in the centre-back, though he insists he is in no rush to leave Spurs. When asked if staying at Spurs was a possibility, Alderweireld told reporters: "Yeah, why not? I have two years left on my contract. I don't know what is going to happen." The 29-year-old is away on international duty with Belgium at the World Cup and will come up against plenty of familiar faces when they face England. And Alderweireld thinks England have a better aura around them this time around. "I have been in the Premier League for four years and something is different with England now,

Patrick Vieira: Former Arsenal captain appointed Nice manager after leaving New York City

Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has been appointed as the new manager of French Ligue 1 side Nice. The ex-Manchester City, Inter Milan and Juventus midfielder was in his third season as head coach of New York City. The 41-year-old had been tipped to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal before the appointment of Unai Emery. "Leaving New York is an incredibly difficult decision for me and my family and one that has not been taken lightly," said Vieira. Nice finished eighth in Ligue 1 last season, missing out on a Europa League place by one point. Vieira takes over from Lucien Favre, who was appointed Borussia Dortmund coach in May. Assistant coach Christian Lattanzio, performance coach Kristian Wilson and physical performance coach Matt Cook have also left New York to join Vieira at Nice. World Cup winner Vieira retired at Manchester City aged 35 in 2011 and was named a football development executive with the Premier League club. In 2015, Vieira left his role as head coach of Manchester City's Under-21s after signing a three-year contract with New York City. The Major League Soccer side are part of the City Football Group founded by Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour.

Pep Guardiola: Yaya Toure says Man City boss 'often has problems with Africans'

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola "often has problems with Africans", says ex-Blues midfielder Yaya Toure. The Ivorian, who left City in May after eight years at the club, says he wants to "break the myth" about Guardiola, whom he describes as "jealous". "Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others," said Toure in an interview with France Football. Premier League champions City have declined to comment on Toure's views. Before his departure, the club named one of their training pitches after him and unveiled a mosaic of him at their training complex. This summer they are set to sign France-born Algeria international Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City. Toure, an Ivory Coast international, played for Guardiola at Barcelona for two seasons until he was sold to City in 2010 for
