On this day: Adebayor wants to 'kill' Arsenal and Fergie on Rooney transfer request

News stories from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United feature.

The Premier League season has finally drawn to a close and it’s the light blue half of Manchester which will be celebrating today as Liverpool weren’t able to stop Manuel Pellegrini’s team from winning the title.

There’s still plenty to look forward to with the FA Cup final this weekend, the Champions League final in under a fortnight and the World Cup starting in a month.

We’ve taken a look back at what stories were making the headlines on this day last year.

‘Adebayor wants to kill Arsenal’

In the race for the Champions League at the back end of last season, Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor had some harsh words for former club Arsenal.

The forward was out to get the Gunners but unfortunately for Spurs, Arsenal were able to secure a win at Newcastle United.

“I don’t care what Arsenal do, what they achieve, that’s not my problem anymore. If I can kill them, I will definitely kill them because we are in a game where wherever you are you have to do your best,” he said.

‘Fergie tells Rooney to think again’

Sir Alex Ferguson told striker Wayne Rooney to think again over a transfer request to leave the club before he officially retired.

The forward was thought to be at odds with how he was being used in Fergie’s side at the back end of last season.

“We’ve refused it. I think he should go away and think about it again. He wasn’t happy about being brought off in games this season. But Wayne Rooney in top form wouldn’t be taken off,” said Ferguson.

‘Monaco to beat Chelsea to Falcao’

The Daily Mail ran a report titled ‘Radamel Falcao Latest’ which didn’t make for good reading if you’re a Chelsea fan.

The report suggested that the French side were in the lead in the race to sign him, eventually snapping him up where he was having a good first season in Ligue One before injury.

‘Sturridge silences boo boys’

Daniel Sturridge took plenty of verbal abuse in Liverpool’s game against Fulham last season due to his Chelsea past.

The striker hit a hat-trick at Craven Cottage as he was routinely booed and jeered throughout the game in West London.

“He’s not perfect. He should have squared one when he was through. But he was looking for his hat-trick, he’s a goalscorer, and to be greedy you’ve got to be good. He’s an outstanding player,” said boss Brendan Rodgers.
