In short

Two Roma old boys have been showing that there's life after their playing days. While Vincenzo Montella settles into his new role as Roma boss, his former team-mate Christian Panucci is taking part in 'Dancing with the Stars' on Italian television.

Panucci is in good company with former World Cup-winning striker Paolo Rossi also putting on his dancing shoes.

Arsenal's Argentinian 'keeper Damian Martinez admitted he almost turned down a move to London from Independiente because he thought it was another 'Arsenal' pursuing him.

"In Argentina, we also have a team called Arsenal and because I was already playing for Independiente Reserves, I did not consider it progress. But it was then explained to me that it was Arsenal in London, now that was very different."
