first_imgThe amount of exclusive stories from Italy with insight on Abel Hernandez’ offers to leave Hull City is rather impressive.This time it’s Calciomercato.it claiming that Chinese side Beijing Guaon are increasing their pressure to sign the striker. According to the website, the player’s agent is expected in the Asian country to deal with an offer of €20m, which includes a three-year contract.Recent reports from Tutto Mercato Web have claimed that €20m was exactly the amount demanded by Hull City, so it will be interesting to see how this one will develop.This would be Beijing Guaon’s second bid for him, as they reportedly offered €18m for the forward a few weeks ago.Hernandez’ agent has recently told the Italian press he had three offers from China, adding to interest from Everton and West Brom.The player’s contract with Hull City expires in 2018, so if the player doesn’t get sold now, the club will have to make an important decision in the summer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndo美術寶1對1香港媽媽們注意了,速來領取適合4-12歲孩子的繪畫課,手慢無美術寶1對1UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndo熱門話題生髮率無敵高!96%的禿頭都獲得改善!←這會不會長太多?熱門話題Undolast_img read more

first_imgThere are many cases of players moving to big clubs too soon in their careers, and Anthony Le Tallec is one of them. Breaking through at an early age in France, the young forward was snapped up by Liverpool in 2002 for £2.25m, but only made 32 appearances during his six years at the club.The manager who signed him, Gérard Houllier, feels Le Tallec should have ‘spent an extra season’ at Le Havre, because the striker was a ‘diamond in the rough’ and needed more polishing before making the big step.The player himself admits he is at fault for how things turned out at Anfield for him, that he was too ‘impatient’ in his early years, as is the case with many youngsters even to this day.He said: “The first season, I was systematically in the first-team group when it was filled with international players. It was magical for me”.However, despite making 23 appearances, Le Tallec didn’t feel as if he was breaking through, and took a radical step.Embed from Getty ImagesHe explained to France Football: “I took the decision to ask Rafa Benitez to go out on loan at Saint-Etienne. He didn’t understand since he was playing me in preseason. He said I was crazy, got annoyed and said: ‘If you want to leave, then leave’. He made me pay for it later”.Despite this, Le Tallec returned six months later, is still full of praise for the Spaniard, who allowed him to live his ‘most beautiful memory’: the Champions League victory in 2005.He stayed at Liverpool until 2007, when he was sold to Le Mans in France.What followed was a series of transfers around Europe, going to Auxerre, Valenciennes, Atromitos Athen, Astra Giurgiu and US Orléans.On September 2nd, he signed with FC Annecy in National 2.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

first_imgWerder Bremen’s Kosovo striker Milot Rasitsa is likely to leave the club this summer, with European club champions Liverpool and Germany’s Leipzig taking the most serious interest.“Many teams are interested in him. I know about Liverpool from the Premier League and Leipzig from the Bundesliga,” Kosovo Football Federation President Agim Amedi told Siri TV.Leipzig even confirmed that they had made an offer to Werder for the 23-year-old goal scorer, but denied that they had reached a deal for his transfer.“Milot is a very interesting player. But he is not the only one in our plans,” RB Sports Director Marcus Krosche told Bild.“Of course we are thinking about the squad next season, but this topic is not in the forefront yet. Our focus is on finishing the championship. Only then will we be able to concentrate on the transfer market,” added Crochet.This season Rasica has 7 goals and 4 assists in 20 games in the Bundesliga, but despite his efforts, the “Bremen musicians” occupy the penultimate 17th place in the standings and are in the relegation zone.“I want to score as many goals as possible, but I know that my main task is to help the club win its matches. I hope to score a few more goals by the end of the season and help Werder save themselves. I always try to improve “, Rashitsa commented to DPA and added that he does not think about a transfer, but only about his performance with the Werder team.Rasica has a buyout clause of 38m euros in his contract, but if Werder loses, it will automatically drop to 15m euros.last_img read more

first_imgFollowing a string of commendable performances during the Golden Jaguars ‘League B’ campaign in the CONCACAF Nations League, international Daniel Wilson, stated that his goal is to become an integral member of the Men’s Senior Programme for the foreseeable future. This was disclosed by the central midfielder yesterday during an exclusive interview with Stabroek Sport. According to Wilson, who has been capped approximately 20 times at the senior level, he is at the optimum age to become a staple of the team.He stated, “I think for now going forward the aim should be a main factor in the national programme. At the age I am at right now, this is the right time and age to be breaking into the national team and with the setup they have now, it’s the right time for me.”Wilson has been a member of the starting XI in five of the previous six matches contested by the Golden Jaguars in League B of the CONCACAF Nations League, which indicates his growing importance to the national senior programme. Wilson, who was also the captain of Guyana’s U20 and U23 programmes, also featured during Guyana’s maiden campaign in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. He further said, “I am not different from the other players, we are aiming for the same goal. I bring the same mentality and winning spirit like everyone else who is a part of the team. As someone who is hard working and very much disciplined to the game, in terms of the quality and the talents I bring to the team, I should be there.”Asked if he considers himself an inspiration to the younger generation of players, given his status as a locally based player, he said, “First of all it’s an honour to represent the national team, I wouldn’t say that I am important to the team because I am just a member and because everyone is important. In terms of younger players looking up to me as a local member of the team, I would say to stay focused and there will be a chance for everyone once they are disciplined. I try my best in whatever picture that I am painting that it’s good and they can look up to me. You can’t paint a bad picture and want the younger players to look up to and follow you. You have to show them good and they will follow you.”Questioned about the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on his training schedule, he revealed, “This pandemic has affected everyone worldwide, not only sports. At the end of the day, you have to maintain your health and fitness and you have to live a healthy life sport or otherwise. This is all about health. While I miss the thing I love, at the end of the day, life and health is far more important.” He further added, “I would like the public to follow all the necessary guidelines because once they are keeping themselves safe, they will be keeping others safe. It starts from you and then others will be safe by your actions.”last_img read more

first_imgAkwa United Coach, Rafael Everton is proud of his team which is yet to lose a game in the Nigeria Professional Football League since February.On the arrival of the Brazilian, the Promise Keepers could only pick a paltry two points from as many as four games including a shocking dramatic home loss in the opening game of the season to El-Kanemi Warriors.  After a tongue-lashing from Club Chairman, Elder Paul Bassey shortly after a humbling 2-0 loss to Nassarawa United in Lafia, the 2017 Aiteo Cup Champions emptied their arsenal against Go Round FC in a resounding 4 – 0 victory appeasing home fans who watched on with relish.In February, Everton’s side played five (5) games recording four wins and a draw. The feat got the former Ifeanyi Ubah gaffer nominated for the League Blogger Awards for Coach of the month.On Sunday, the Uyo based side picked all three points in Okigwe after Ndifreke Effiong opened the scoring to increase his tally for the season to five. Despite the Naze Millionaires grabbing an equalizer, former Enyimba point man nicked the final goal of the encounter to lift Akwa United to second place in Group B, two points behind FC Ifeanyi Ubah.Everton did not fail to hide his excitement after his team secured maximum three points for the second time in as many as six (6) matches away from home. Which NPFL Coach won’t be excited after his side has picked nine (9) points from a possible 18 midway through the season.Pointing to the turnaround, the 30-year-old tactician said, “(In) football, sometimes we need time to work. We have good players. This one (the early season blushes) teach us to have good results.“We now have seven matches, no loss. We go away like home. We play (and) we see [the] chance to score. The players now have confidence to score goals.” He said.Akwa United have scored 12 of their 17 goals so far this season at the Nest of Champions and will hope to do a double over Heartland of Owerri who visit Uyo on Sunday, March 24.RelatedNPFL: Everton Relieved as Akwa United Sweep Aside Go Round in Uyo (AUDIO)February 4, 2019In “NPFl”2018/2019 NPFL Match-Day One: Disastrous Start For Akwa United As Enyimba, Pillars Win on Opening DayJanuary 14, 2019In “NPFl”NPFL: Akwa United’s Rough Rise and Everton’s DebacleJanuary 30, 2019In “Articles”last_img read more

first_imgSecond-half substitute Thierry Henry netted on his return to the Emirates to send a sluggish Arsenal side into the FA Cup fourth round against a resilient Leeds United outfit.The on-loan New York Red Bulls attacker scored with only his fifth touch since coming on midway through the second period to set up a home clash against fellow Premier League side Aston Villa in the next round.Gunners boss Arsene Wenger handed a number of fringe players the chance to impress with talented youngsters Ignasi Miquel, Francis Coquelin and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all named in a strong looking starting lineup.As for the visitors, on-loan Tottenham winger Andros Townsend was given the chance to impress against his parent club’s bitter local rivals, while manager Simon Grayson opted for Argentine striker Luciano Becchio to lead the line.The home side started the match brightly, bossing possession against their Championship opponents, with Russia international Andrey Arshavin squandering a couple of presentable chances early on.Former Sevilla man Sebastien Squillaci came close to breaking the deadlock in the 14th minute. Mikel Arteta played in a wicked set piece which the French defender met with his head, but failed to test Andy Lonergan in the Leeds goal. Leeds finally posed a threat midway through the first half after Arsenal failed to clear a free kick. Mika Vayrynen picked up the loose ball before driving to the by-line. His attempted cross deflected nicely into the path of Becchio who could only smash his close-range effort over.Wenger’s defensive injury problems took another turn for the worse after Coquelin picked up an apparent hamstring injury and was subsequently replaced by debutant Nico Yennaris.Despite continuing to dominate possession Arsenal failed to create another chance and the two sides headed into the half-time interval all square after failing to hit the target.Arsenal opened the second period with greater urgency and finally managed to work Lonergan. Oxlade-Chamberlain surged down the left-hand side before cutting his cross back to Marouane Chamakh. The Moroccan then laid the ball off to Arteta who forced Lonergan into a smart save.With less than 25 minutes remaining, Henry made his much-anticipated comeback as Wenger decided to add the Frenchman and Theo Walcott into the mix as he strived for the win, with the former Barcelona forward’s arrival sparking the previously reserved home supporters into a frenzy. The deadlock was finally broken in the 77th minute with Henry capping a dream return to action for the club which helped to turn him into a world star. Alex Song played the ball through to the striker, who took his time before bending a trademark finish past the hapless Lonergan.Leeds almost managed to strike back instantly through a Ross McCormack header which the previously untested Wojciech Szczęsny did well to hold onto. The visitors continued to push for a goal and Szczesny was again called into action by a stinging effort by former Chelsea man Mikael Forssell.With his side safely into the next round, Henry will be hoping his goalscoring cameo will be enough to force himself into contention for a starting berth for the Gunners’ Premier League trip to Swansea at the weekend.last_img read more
