1. Bullard claims Hull paid him £15,000 a week too much
Now retired midfielder Jimmy Bullard has claimed that Hull City made an error on his contract, which saw him paid an extra £15,000 per week. Bullard joined Hull from Fulham in January 2009 on a four and a half year deal, when both sides were in the Premier League. Bullard claims he had agreed a £40,000 a week pay deal, but then he saw his new contract. "I saw on the paperwork it said 50,000 pounds so I've passed it under the table to my agent and my agent's gone: 'Yeah, that's a misprint, sign it'," the 37-year-old said. "As I signed it I blew it (the ink) dry and then I read under it as well, another 5,000 or 6,000 in appearance (money). I'm celebrating to this day. Thank you Hull City for changing my life. I'm dropping cash everywhere, I'm bleeding cash," added the former footballer.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has talked about Leicester City's 'incredible achievement' to be leading the Premier League. The Foxes were many people's favourite to be relegated this season, as the manager who saved them last season, Nigel Pearson, was sacked in the summer and replaced by Claudio Ranieri, who was given the derogatory name of 'The Tinkerman' by the English media in his last spell in English football. With Ranieri and his Leicester team proving everyone wrong, Zidane said in a press conference: "At this stage of the season for Leicester to be leading is an incredible achievement. It's being talked about not just in England, but across Europe. With so many big teams with big budgets in England, if they can be in the Champions League next season, it will be special for football."
