"The club will be making an announcement shortly regarding a new first-team manager," a statement said.

Betfair pulls out of Germany over 5% gambling tax

The Betfair betting Exchange has withdrawn its online sports product from Germany, blaming a 5 percent turnover tax for making its main product unviable in Europe's largest economy.

Betfair released an announcement saying "The company is disappointed that to date the tax authorities have not been able to agree to an interpretation of the law that would allow Betfair to continue to offer the exchange product ... Consequently, Betfair has decided to withdraw its exchange product from the German market".

William Hill, Britain's largest bookmaker, said it no longer offered any kind of service to German residents because of the tax situation.

Bwin has amended its business model in Germany, its largest market, by no longer accepting very short-odds bets on sports events there.

FOOTBALL : Arsenal beat Tottenham 5-2 again - video highlights

Emmanuel Adebayor made a nightmare return to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, scoring and then being sent off as Arsenal cruised to a 5-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby.

Spurs opened the scoring, beating the Arsenal offside trap, for Emmanuel Adebayor to eventually score from the rebound after a good save by Szczesny. From hero to zero, Emmanuel Adebayor was then sent off for a late, high two-footed tackle.

Per Mertesacker atoned for his offside trap fail with a looping header to make it 1-1.

Lukas Podolski gave the Gunners the lead going into the half-time break. Olivier Giroud made it 3-1 right on half-time.

Santi Cazorla finished off a great move between Arsenal’s front 3 to make it 4-1. Gareth Bale pulled it back to 4-2 in the 71st minute.

Theo Walcott put the gloss back on the scoreline in injury time to make it 5-2 - to repeat last seasons North London derby scoreline for Arsenal.

FT : Chelsea 5-4 Manchester United - video highlights

OK - so there were "only" nine goals in this Captial One Cup tie - another cracker of a game as Chelsea beat Manchester United 5-4 in extra time.

Ryan Giggs Opened the scoring for ManYoo, and David Luiz equalised from the spot before Javier Hernandez put United 2-1 up at the halftime break.

Gary Cahill made it 2-2 but it appeared Nani's chipped finish would win it, before Eden Hazard scored in the 94th minute from another spot-kick to make it 3-3.
