    Tottenham Hotspur will remain at Wembley for any potential Europa League matches, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino.

    Spurs have played their home Champions League games at Wembley this season but they cannot qualify for the knockout stages after losing to AS Monaco on Tuesday.

    They will go into the Europa Lague if they win or draw their final Champions League group tie.

    Pochettino wants his players to make Wembley feel like home, adding that his players should always "look forwards."

    Olympian Greg Rutherford has been speaking to 5 live about his future in athletics.

    Rutherford took bronze in the long jump at the Rio Olympics, thanks to a final leap of 8.29m.

    “There are still things in athletics that I want to achieve. Next year I’m going to start sprinting a bit," he told Afternoon Edition.

    "I’m going to go back down that route and I’m going to jump and hopefully win another world title in London, then I’m going to consider retirement in the next few years.”

    So, Joey Barton is back training at Burnley, Michael Essien is doing the same at Chelsea and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has not flat-out denied a potential Liverpool return for Steven Gerrard.

    But which ex-player would you love to have back at your club? Still pining for Bale? Desperately missing Ronaldo?

    Send your suggestions to #bbcsportsday on Twitter, along with which club you support.

  14. Barton set for Burnley return?

    Football

    Joey Barton

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche has not ruled out the possibility of Joey Barton rejoining the club in January.   

    It was revealed today that the 34-year-old is training with the Clarets, initially with a view to keeping up his fitness.

    But in a press conference earlier on Thursday, Dyche said: "It's about getting him fit and sharp. That's good for him...who knows about us? We'll take that on when I see fit."

    It'd be a positive turn of events for the midfielder if he did re-join Burnley after his contract with Rangers was terminated by the Scottish club after just eight matches.

  15. Essien back at Chelsea

    Football

    Joey Barton isn't the only midfielder training with his former club at the moment. Michael Essien is back at Chelsea and working on his fitness.

    The 33-year-old, who played for the Blues from 2005 to 2014 was released by Panathinaikos last summer and is yet to find a new club.

    Maybe the video he posted on Instagram will help...
