Lee Sharpe returned to Highbury with Manchester United after a whirlwind two years of extreme highs and lows

Lee Sharpe was set for a return to the scene of former glory at Highbury that weekend, with his Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson tipping him to emerge from a nightmare and play a major part in reviving the club’s premier league title dream. The 21-year-old grabbed a hat trick for Arsenal against United two years earlier. But since then his career had been blighted by nagging injury and frightening illness. He was diagnosed with a condition of viral meningitis. Ferguson said “Sharpe is a worker and a provider who can give us the crosses we’ve badly needed for the strikers. It is great to have him back and I believe you can already see the difference he makes to our attacking form.”

Coventry City had to keep their backroom staff without an official contract due to ongoing cases & compensation payments to ex-manager Terry Butcher and his assistants

Bobby Gould and his backroom were working without contracts to help cash-strapped Coventry City through their financial worries. The club announced yes that it made a £1.4 million trading loss in the year ended last May and it owes the bank £2.2 million in loan and overdraft. Their previous manager Terry Butcher was dismissed earlier that year and had taken out a High Court writ for the remaining two years of his contract an estimated £500000. Mick Mills and Brian Eastick, the assistant coaches had sued the club as well and had taken a settlement out of court.
