Former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has seemingly ruled out a return to the Serie A amid links with a number of top jobs in the division.

New Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard has declared himself fully fit for action after accusations that he arrived at the club from Chelsea overweight. "I feel good, it is true that people expect a lot from me and me too and personally I can do better," he told reporters ahead of tonight's 2-2 draw with Club Brugge in the Champions League.

"There will be criticism and I am critical of myself, not everything is perfect right now but now I am 100% and I hope to do my best in the next matches. People expect a lot from me and I am the one who has to prove my level, people have seen what I did in France, Belgium, Chelsea, and now I have to improve so fans are proud of me. Now I feel one hundred per cent, I am no longer injured. I need to score goals and when I start to score and make good games it will be much simpler. I think I am missing a goal or assist to start come back."

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has denied that there is a problem of communication between members of his squad. The Spaniard has players from 13 different nationalities on his books but insists that nothing gets lost in translation.

"I think no – I have conversations with players, particularly individually with Bukayo Saka. Sometimes I use Freddie [Ljungberg] to do that conversation with individual players," Emery is quoted as saying by The Mirror. "Now my English is, from one to 10, maybe a six. But at six, I think the players can understand me. If not, some help is good."
