LEROY SANE’S TRIBUTE TO HIMSELF

Many footballers have tattoos these days, so it’s not really news when we can add one more to the list. But Manchester City winger Leroy Sane’s tattoo is newsworthy for a different reason. See for yourself.

FAREWELLS

While John Terry’s Chelsea denouement was the talk of the day, with an emotional moment as the club legend was given a guard of honour while being substituted in the 26th minute, there were other farewells across the country – although a few of them may not end up actually being farewells.

Lucas Leiva has been on the verge of leaving Liverpool just about every year in recent times, only to end up staying, but this time, his adieu to the Anfield faithful seemed final.

Likewise, while Wayne Rooney hasn’t decided whether his future remains at Old Trafford, you couldn’t escape the feeling that this was the last time he played in the Premier League as a Manchester United player.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

While some players were bidding farewell, others were ushering in a new era in the Premier League.

KOLO TOURE, A DOUBLE INVINCIBLE

The 2003/04 season was the last time Arsenal won the Premier League – a fact rival fans are all too eager to remind Arsenal fans about. Arsenal fans, meanwhile, cling onto memories of that triumph for its unique place in history, with that season’s team forever being christened as the Invincibles.

On Sunday, one player from that team got to relive the moment.

Celtic always dominate the Scottish league, but even by those standards, this season has been special, and it’s allowed Kolo Toure to become an Invincible again.

CHELSEA MINDS ON WENGER

Chelsea fans were waiting for the Premier League trophy to be presented, right after watching their legendary captain sent off in style and their team setting a new record for most wins in a Premier League season (30).

So, of course, one of the songs they decided to start singing was, “Arsene Wenger, we want you to stay.”

Some rivalries trump everything, and ever since Jose Mourinho arrived at Chelsea in 2004, the Chelsea-Arsenal rivalry became one of the most explosive in England.

Even when tensions between Mourinho, now at United, and Wenger seem to have mellowed, the bitterness between Chelsea and Arsenal seems to grow. And, in this moment, as Chelsea capped off a triumphant league season and Arsenal missed out on the Champions League for the first time in Wenger’s tenure, the Blues fans weren’t about to let their rivals off easily.

The FA Cup final should be fun.
