Happy birthday to Alex Telles.
The Manchester United full-back turns 28 today and has been receiving lots of messages online wishing him a happy birthday.
Telles thanked his supporters on Twitter for their generous messages, along with a picture of his canine companion.

A lot of footballers have had famous pets down the years, so we’ll wait to learn the name of Telles’ dog before launching a Twitter account — or in Triggs’ case, an autobiography.
Up next for Telles is an away trip to Sheffield United, which we tip the Brazilian to play a key role in from the left flank. Telles’ inviting crosses could be a defining factor on the game, and make it a comfortable night for the Reds if Edinson Cavani is available to make a presence inside the Blades’ box.
He’s still learning the English game but Telles needs to improve defensively if he’s to have any chance becoming a regular in the line-up.
He’s 10x times better than Luke Shaw when it comes to attacking in the final third.
