    British royal family: Which football clubs do the Queen, Prince Harry & Prince William support?

    The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry have all shown allegiance to various football clubs over the years, with rumours of certain players and coaches influencing their choice of team. London sides Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham have all been thrown into the mix as local clubs to the UK royal's family home. However, sides further afield are also speculated to be supported by various members of the monarchy. Here is a full run through of each team the royal family members are thought to support... Which football club does Queen Elizabeth II support? The current head of state in the UK, Queen Elizabeth II has been speculated to support a number of sides over the years. It's now thought the Queen may be a West Ham United fan. It's thought the reigning monarch has kept tight-lipped about her team to remain neutral but it's since been reported that she could have admired the club as far back as the 60s.  However, it's also thought the Queen may have a soft spot for Arsenal after meeting with Arsene Wenger at an event at Buckingham Palace in 2007. It's rumoured she was particularly impressed with Cesc Fabregas after chatting to him.  Which football club does Prince Charles support? In 2012, it came to light that Prince Charles was a Burnley supporter after doing charity work in the area. Once asked why he backs the club he said: "Burnley has been through some very challenging times and I'm trying to find ways of helping to regenerate and raise aspirations and self-esteem in that part of the world." Following the revelation, Burnley gave the head of the commonwealth a VIP season ticket. Which football club does Prince William support? The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, is probably the most active member of the royal family in the footballing world. An avid Aston Villa fan, he's attended multiple games ever since he was taken to Villa Park as a child. In 2006, Prince William also became president of the FA and has regularly attending England games and FA Cup finals. In addition, he opened the St George's Park national football centre, which has links to the England national team, and hosted a football match at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the work of grassroots football volunteers.  Which football club does Prince Harry support? Prince Harry has kept quiet about his allegiance to one specific club, mostly seen at England games or cup finals. However, when conducting charity work with local children at the New Zealand government house in Wellington a few years back he was heard saying "most of the royal family are Arsenal fans". It's been speculated Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle, which falls on the same day as the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea, is purposely being held at 12pm UK time so that attendees of the big day will be able to still watch the match, which kicks off at 5:15pm. Which football club does Kate Middleton support? The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, might have been thought to support the same team as her husband, Prince William, and be an Aston Villa fan. However, during an engagement with a children's charity in 2015 she revealed she was a Chelsea fan. One of the children at the event said: "We high-fived because she supports Chelsea and I support Chelsea."

    Allegri future planning at Juventus after ending Arsenal rumours

    Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri expects to stay at the club and is already thinking ahead to next season. The 50-year-old has been one of the main names linked with the Arsenal manager's job following the news that Arsene Wenger will be leaving the Gunners. Allegri has always maintained he is happy at Juventus, though, and he intends to meet with the club's management as early as next week to begin planning for 2018-19. "The probability of me staying is very high," he told a news conference ahead of Saturday's Serie A clash with Hellas Verona, when champions Juve will lift the trophy. "Next week, I'll meet with the club as we start to make the team competitive again, just like every other year. "Next year will be even more difficult and we need to keep raising our game. It's in Juve's DNA to be competitive on all fronts. "I am happy at Juventus and I have an excellent relationship with the club." Allegri has won four Serie A and Coppa Italia doubles since taking over in 2014, as well as reaching two Champions League finals in four years. He signed a new contract last July to keep him at the club until the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is the favourite to be named the next Gunners boss, while Carlo Ancelotti, Luis Enrique and Brendan Rodgers have also been linked.

    Wenger yet to speak with PSG after 'shock' of Arsenal exit

    Arsene Wenger admits he is still coming to terms with the “shock” of his departure at Arsenal, with no talks having been held with Paris Saint-Germain. The Frenchman, who is severing ties with the Gunners after 22 years, is yet to clear his desk at Emirates Stadium and ready himself for a new challenge. He has vowed to remain in football, with the 68-year-old not ready to head into retirement just yet. No decision has been taken on his future, though, with a mooted directorial role back in his homeland at Ligue 1 champions PSG yet to be discussed. “I have had no discussions with them recently, I can tell you that in all honesty,” Wenger told The Guardian. “I have always been close to those in charge of PSG – I advised them to buy the club because I was convinced there were great things that could be done in a city which loves football. “They have worked well and made a good start. I think people are too hard on them, too demanding. “PSG just won all four national trophies in France and it’s not enough, apparently. But you cannot build a club with the idea that if you don’t win the Champions League then it’s a failure.” Wenger added on how he is still coming to terms with life after Arsenal, with his exit having been announced in mid-April: “It’s just too soon to know what I will do next. “I haven’t even emptied my desk yet and in a way I am still in a state of shock. “I am going to give myself until June 14, the day the World Cup begins, to decide. The question is do I still want to coach, to be on the bench, or is it time to take up different functions? The one thing I can say for sure is that I will continue to work. “But do I want to continue to suffer as much? I want to continue to defend my ideas of football, that’s for sure. Spontaneously, I would say I still want to coach but I can’t really say that yet for sure.” Wenger has also suggested that Arsenal will struggle to replace him, with loyalty and continuity seemingly traits which have disappeared from football during his epic tenure in north London. He added: “My type of loyalty probably doesn’t exist anymore. “Maybe the dinosaur I became was the last symbol of times that have changed. We are today in a society which is so quick to reject. There is no time to build, to construct, always this demand for results immediately. Maybe people wanted to manifest that too. “It was nice to see some of the recognition, I admit. When I arrived, you know, I was a complete unknown and I have always had the impression I am representing my country in a way. “In a land where there has always been so much animosity between the English and the French I am proud to have achieved certain things and perhaps to have opened doors for other French coaches. Don’t forget, when I arrived in England a foreign manager was a very rare thing.”

    Wenger: Arteta has qualities for Arsenal job

    Arsene Wenger believes Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta has the "qualities" required to succeed him at Arsenal. Wenger is leaving Arsenal after 22 years at the club, with former Gunners captain Arteta revealed by Goal to be the front-runner for the post. Talks are due to be held between Arsenal and Arteta on Thursday, with Pep Guardiola having confirmed he will allow the Spaniard to leave City, should the 36-year-old be offered the job. And Wenger has given his backing to Arteta as the next manager of Arsenal, who missed out on Champions League qualification for the second year in a row and lost in the semi-finals of the Europa League. "He has all the qualities to do the job, yes and I think as well he is one of the favourites," Wenger told beIN SPORTS. "He was a leader and he has a good passion for the game and he knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club and he was captain of the club. Why not? "I left a lot of experience behind me, people who were with me like Steve Bould who has six years' experience, and Jens Lehmann too. He [Arteta] has been an assistant of Guardiola as well, so overall I think he has the qualities." Wenger will not be involved in the board's decision over his successor at Arsenal, though. "I don't want to influence [the appointment] publicly," Wenger said. "Because for me I believe it is important that they make their choice in an objective way and after they make a decision I will support them."
