Read on to find out more.
Franz Beckenbauer has pointed the finger at Gianluigi Buffon as a reason for Juventus' defeat at Bayern Munich.
Former Bayern Munich and West Germany defender Franz Beckenbauer has apologised to Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon for labelling him a "pensioner" following the Italian side's Champions League defeat at the Allianz Arena this week (Sky Sports).
Juve lost 2-0 to the Bundesliga champions-elect in the first leg of their quarterfinal in Germany, and Buffon, 35, conceded the first goal to David Alaba after just 24 seconds of the game.
Bayern president Beckenbauer criticised the veteran Italy international goalkeeper after the game, but has now said sorry for his "pensioner" comment (Goal.com).
For the record, Beckenbauer is 67, which is the current retirement age in Germany (Forbes.com).
Will Atletico Madrid fans ever see Fernando Torres play for their team again?
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres wants to see out his current deal at Stamford Bridge, pouring cold water on Atletico Madrid supporters' hopes that the player could return to the Vicente Calderon Stadium next season (The Metro).
The Spain international, who was dropped from the national squad for the recent World Cup qualifiers last month (BBC Sport), is determined to rediscover his form in west London with the Blues.
Torres, 29, has failed to hit the heights with Chelsea since joining the club for £50 million from Liverpool in January 2011 and was linked with a return to Atletico as part of a deal to bring Radamel Falcao to Stamford Bridge next season (The Mirror).
But the Blues forward is hoping to see out his current deal at Chelsea, which ends in 2016.
Chico Flores has signed a new deal with Swansea City.
Swansea City have rewarded defender Chico Flores for his excellent form this season with a new one-year extension at the Liberty Stadium (Sky Sports).
The 26-year-old, who joined the Swans from Genoa for £2 million last summer, was one of Michael Laudrup's first signings after taking over from Liverpool-bound Brendan Rodgers.
Flores has produced a series of excellent displays since joining the club, but missed out on the Capital Cup Final triumph over Bradford City with an ankle injury (BBC Sport).
The extension to his deal will commit Flores to Swansea until 2016.
Hamburg will stage a barbecue to repay supporters who travelled to Munich for the 9-2 defeat by Bayern last weekend.
There probably isn't a more appropriate club in the world to apologise to supporters with a barbecue than Hamburg SV.
After the Bundesliga side were trounced 9-2 by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena last weekend, the club announced that fans would be treated to a free barbecue on Apr. 21 as recompense.
This story initially emerged on April Fool's Day, which made us a little cautious, but Hamburg have confirmed that the offer to fans is genuine (HSV.de).
Please note how we have avoided any awful puns involving Hamburg and barbecue, despite their grilling by Bayern last weekend. Damn, nearly managed it.
Southampton captain Kelvin Davis has voiced his support for his manager.
There is never any harm in being pleasant to your boss, and Southampton club captain Kelvin Davis insists the club made the right decision to axe Nigel Adkins and bring in Mauricio Pochettino as his replacement.
Adkins, who is now in charge of Premier League strugglers Reading, was controversially sacked by Saints owner Nicola Cortese after guiding the club to two successive promotions in two-and-a-half years at the club (BBC Sport).
However, Davis maintains the correct decision was made (Sky Sports) and today's 2-0 win over Adkins and the Royals at the Madejski Stadium, which was Southampton's third successive win, would appear to justify the goalkeeper's thoughts.
