While his manager was enjoying his stay in Brazil, the Arsenal midfielder cannot wait for the club season, while Ghana deny that there is a players' revolt in the camp

Like kids at Christmas, the footballing fraternity jumped out of bed on Wednesday morning for a first glance at the fixtures for the coming season and they were not disappointed.

The schedule for every single team across Britain was announced and fans and players alike scrolled endlessly to pick out those all-important crunch ties with title pretenders and local rivals.

While people back in the UK were preoccupied with the season ahead, the small matter of the World Cup continues in Brazil and a few out there will have been casting an eye over the morning's announcements.

One such person is Arsene Wenger, who was snapped with a holidaymaker on a beach in South America. The Gunners boss is currently out there working with French TV and is set to host a meeting with Mario Balotelli's representatives on Saturday to discuss a possible move back to England for the Italian.

Elsewhere, Ghana had to come out to deny that their players are going on strike and Mexico's hero from their 0-0 stalemate with hosts Brazil, Guillermo Ochoa, took to Twitter to thanks fans for their support.
