Operation Rodrigo: Barça would sign Bruno Fernandes and leave him on loan at Valencia

first_imgRodrigo Moreno has not trained today with Valencia in the previous Cup match. The striker who is at the Cugat clinic in Barcelona, ​​with Cillessen and Manu Vallejo, initially undergoes a review to check the condition of his knee with Dr. Cugat, who is an external doctor at Valencia, as Cope has confirmed. In fact, it was already there two weeks ago. This, first, implies that Rodrigo will not be on the list for the match against Cultural, which could have been his last game with the Valencia shirt.Rodrigo’s absence coincides with a key day in his future. Valencia and Barcelona will continue negotiating today for their transfer. Yesterday the agreement was not closed, although the parties settled down to speak today.Bruno Fernandes optionIn Rodrigo’s operation, the possibility of Barcelona signing to Bruno Fernandes (Sporting de Portugal), who was about to sign for Manchester United, and would automatically transfer it to Valencia, as published by ‘Superdeporte’. As AS has learned, the operation would not be for now, but from June. The idea is that Barcelona would sign him until 2025, but with an agreement to transfer it until the end of the 2020-21 season. And is that the club blaugrana, by issues of Financial fair play, I could not undertake the two operations in this winter market. The Alcacer option, also openValencia also prepares its offensive to hire Paco Alcacer. The striker, who is in Dortmund pending his return to Mestalla, is chosen by Valencia to reinforce his front. As AS reported, it was from the beginning of the market. Of course, the initial operation was thinking of June or, failing that, if Gameiro and Sobrino had left now in January. But Alcácer’s name has remained the first option as a result of the emergence of the option of Barcelona signing Rodrigo to replace Luis Suárez’s loss. Valencia knows that it has the OK of Alcácer, with which it would take “three minutes” to close his contract, although obviously the pitfall is in the claims of Borussia Dortmund. The Germanic club, little given to the assignments, would give the green light to the exit of Alcácer whenever it recovered the invested in its day, which would be around 25 million.last_img read more

Clarendon College cool Little London

first_imgReynaldo Richardson struck twice to lead title contenders Clarendon College to a hard-fought 3-0 victory over the well-drilled Little London High in the ISSA/Flow daCosta Cup quarter-final yesterday in the feature match of a double-header at the Frome Sports Ground.Petersfield edged Fair Prospect 2-1 in the first game, to give themselves a shot at advancing to the next round from Zone R, which is being led by defending champions St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS).The champions roughed up Vere Tech 4-1 in Santa Cruz to underline their intent and are clearly now rounding into the kind of form coach Omar Wedderburn mentioned after their last game.It took the Clarendon aggregation 56 minutes to break what was up until then, a wonderful spectacle of attacking football, when Richardson fired in a torrid shot from an angle for the 1-0 lead.Richardson scored the second three minutes later, this time as a Creggton Charleton free-kick was headed back across the goal and the forward made no mistake from inside the six-yard area, to make the score 2-0.FREE-KICK GOALClive Jarrett hit Clarendon’s third off another Charleton free kick in the 86th minute with a simple finish, after the Little London goalie Clifford Clarke had the ball bounced off his right leg.The Zone S clash, began with Little London playing at a high tempo and looked the smarter of the two in the opening exchanges.But they could not sustain the high velocity, and Clarendon slowly began taking a hold of proceedings, through Charleton and Shande James in the midfield.Coach Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis made a slight adjustment at the start of the second half, and it paid rich dividends with Richardson opening the scoring. From there, it was practically all Clarendon.Little London’s bravery was broken and they succumbed to their second loss of the season.”This was a game in which our experience showed, primarily in the second half,” said coach Davis.”Little London came at us hard in the first, but we buckled down to play some good football. It was a really competitive game, but I am happy to have won with just one more game in this round and the semi-final on the horizon,” noted Davis.Elsewhere, Cornwall College continued their steamrolling express with a difficult 2-1 win over Ocho Rios, thanks to yet another two-goal burst from leading scorer Jourdaine Fletcher to join Manchester High on 6 points in Zone P. Manchester defeated Glenmuir 2-1.Dinthill returned to winning ways, outplaying Rusea’s 3-1 in Zone Q to be on 3 points, and stay second in the zone behind Lennon High (6 points).Lennon had earlier in the day tagged Paul Bogle 1-0 to hold prime position heading into a semi-final berth.Yesterday’s resultsSTETHS 4, Vere Tech 1Ocho Rios 1, Cornwall College 2Manchester 2, Glenmuir 1Steer Town 3, Spot Valley 0Dinthill 3, Rusea’s 1Clarendon College 3, Little London 0Petersfield 2, Fair Prospect 1Lennon High 1, Paul Bogle 0last_img read more

3 ACL tears won’t keep Creighton’s Martin Krampelj off court

first_imgJapeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Dr. Andrew Cosgarea, professor of orthopedic surgery and chief of the Division of Sports Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, said while it’s not unusual for people to tear ACLs multiple times, it’s rare for elite athletes to play at the same level following multiple tears.“There is such a finite opportunity for success at the Division I and professional level, and I think you run out of time, you become selected out, you lose those opportunities when you’re gone that much,” Cosgarea said.Creighton head athletic trainer Ben McNair said Krampelj’s upbeat attitude has helped him battle through the arduous rehab. When dealing with one or more ACL tears, McNair said, the medical staff explains to the athlete the higher risk of re-injury and lays out the rehab plan, and then it’s up to the athlete whether he or she wants to do the work necessary to play again.“Martin is a full-speed-ahead kind of guy. Usually, you have to pull the reins back on him rather than kick him in the butt,” McNair said.Krampelj played on national teams in Slovenia before leaving in 2014 to attend Impact Academy in Sarasota, Florida. He drew recruiting interest from West Virginia, Rhode Island, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech but was sold on Creighton when 14,000 fans showed up to watch an exhibition game during his official campus visit.He took a redshirt year after the ACL tear seven games into the 2015-16 season, and he backed up first-round draft pick Justin Patton during an injury-free 2016-17. Before getting hurt last January, Krampelj was averaging 11.9 points and 8.1 rebounds and was second in the Big East in field goal percentage.Until now, Creighton coach Greg McDermott has never had a player attempt a comeback after three ACL tears in his 25 years as a head coach. Though Krampelj injured an ankle in preseason practice, he’s being counted on right away to give the Bluejays a strong inside presence. His leadership also is needed on a team that lost four of its top six scorers, including Marcus Foster and NBA draft pick Khyri Thomas.McDermott likes Krampelj’s chances for a successful return.“To come back and be as athletic as he is, there is not one ounce of athleticism he’s lost during the process,” McDermott said. “In fact, it seems he’s come back stronger and with more authority in that he’s doing athletically. It’s a real credit to him and his work ethic that he’s back to the point he is.” Coming back from three is not.Krampelj was establishing himself as one of the most improved players in the Big East when he stepped awkwardly on teammate Kaleb Joseph’s right foot during a game against Seton Hall on Jan. 17. He got the bad news the next day, and if there was any self-pitying thought of “Oh, no, not again,” it was fleeting.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“When I got my MRI results, I was like, ‘I’m coming back,’ ” Krampelj said. “It’s so worth it.”The 6-foot-9, 235-pound junior forward from Slovenia (his name is pronounced Mar-TEEN CROM-pul) knew all too well what was ahead following surgery. The rehabilitation process is not only hard work, it can be painful. There are mental obstacles, none more prevalent than fear of re-injury. He also would have to rebuild his conditioning. “There would be a lot of people giving it up after the first or second one,” Krampelj said. “I’m not a quitter. I’m not going to give up, and that’s it.”Krampelj first tore his left ACL during a tournament in France in 2013 in a non-contact situation. He tore his right ACL during a practice early in the 2015-16 season when he got tangled with former teammate Zach Hanson. And then there was the fluke landing on Joseph’s foot that resulted in yet another tear in the left knee.“Everything happens for a reason. I believe in that,” Krampelj said. “You never know what it’s good for. God gives the toughest battles to the toughest soldiers.”Former Purdue star Robbie Hummel, who came back from two ACL tears in 2010, said he isn’t sure he would have the wherewithal to do what Krampelj is attempting.“It’s hard to continually put everything you have into something and to be consistently disappointed by it, especially with something that should be joyful,” Hummel said. “It’s fun to play college basketball, it’s fun to play a sport at a high level like that. When you keep getting let down in a way, it can be really, really frustrating and really hard. Respect to Martin for coming back again and again because it is a tough process.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LATEST STORIES Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?center_img Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Martin Krampelj #15 of the Creighton Bluejays walks off the court after being defeated by Providence Friars during the Big East basketball tournament Quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden on March 8, 2018 in New York City.

Manchester City star Yaya Toure: ‘I’m not happy!’

first_img Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has launched an astonishing attack on his critics in both England and his homeland, saying he is not happy with the lack of credit he receives for his achievements on the pitch.The 32-year-old Ivory Coast captain joined City from Barcelona in July 2010 and has since won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup since his arrival.He has, however, looked below his best so far this season despite the Blues’ – who have a two-point lead at the top of the table – impressive start.Toure was replaced by Fernando at half-time of Saturday’s 5-1 victory over Bournemouth and has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium amid suggestions of unrest and disillusionment.And although Toure admits he is unhappy with life in football, he claims it is because he has never been given the plaudits he feels he deserves, particularly from the English media.“Everyone thinks I am happy: I have won titles, lots of money, but no, I am not happy,” he said in a lengthy interview with French newspaper L’Equipe.“When things are said positively, that interests me a lot. But here in England it is not the case. In these last weeks, the journalists have spoken about a new departure for me. But what new departure?“I have just finished a season with City where we came second in the league. I scored 12 goals despite the fact I had to leave the club to join my national team, who were playing in the African Nations Cup. I was out for nearly two months and I am reproached for not scoring as many goals as last season.“Last season I scored 26 goals, 20 in the Premier League, and nobody mentioned it.”This isn’t the first apparent outburst of its kind from Toure, who – according to his agent – accused City of a lack of respect when they failed to recognise his birthday last year.He continued: “When I arrived at City, I heard a lot of people say here that I was going to kill football. A lot of people, idiots I have to say, mocked me. And did you see what happened next? We won nearly everything. I did it, we did it, because I was not all alone of course, but nobody picked up on it again. In fact, it is recognition that I do not have that hurts me.“When people attack you, you should not respond because, for the most part, they understand nothing. Thankfully, my record and my statistics speak for me.”And Toure is equally unhappy with the reception he receives in his native Ivory Coast, who were crowned African Nations Cup champions in February under his captaincy.However, the midfielder insists he has no plans to quit international football in the near future despite the criticism.He said: “I love my country. If that was not the case, if I was spiteful, I would have said ‘I quit’. “But it is my country and even if I am the player who is the most insulted in this country, even if I am everybody’s laughing stock, I cannot abandon it.” 1last_img read more

first_imgBY CATHAL MAC SUIBHNE: A frustrating evening for the Donegal contingent at Pairc Esler in Newry, a one point defeat when a draw was certainly within reach. In an entertaining encounter under lights, both teams played some excellent football and both deserved a share of the spoils. The home fans left happier though and next week’s home tie with Laois is now in the must-win category for Donegal.Down were lively early on, determined to run at Donegal and were quick to register points on the board. The battle around the middle made for interesting viewing with Neil Gallagher and Dan Gordon having a great battle. The impish Conor Laverty, named at full forward, played a deep playmaking role to good effect and was involved in much of the good work from Down early on. The home side found themselves five points clear after a goal from Liam Doyle but Donegal responded well and began to take control around the middle. Donegal played a pressing game high up the field and it led to a couple of scores as they clawed their way back into the game. Mark McHugh was prominent throughout this period, getting his name on the score sheet twice in a matter of minutes following the concession of the goal. McHugh, a surprise starter following a muscle injury sustained last week, is widely regarded as a hard worker and skilful ball carrier after his sweeper role last year but he’s also a fine half forward and is well able to take his scores.His club, Kilcar, will be hoping he can keep doing that as himself and Patrick McBrearty are in Ulster U21 club action tomorrow; with both on song you wouldn’t bet against them. The younger of the duo McBrearty, showed well for the ball over the course of the game and looked dangerous when running at defenders, something we will hopefully see more of during the league. The pressing game is just another layer of the McGuinness defensive system and it was employed tonight in a similar way to last year’s championship game with Cavan. Despite what the national media would have you believe its not as simple as putting everyone behind the ball; Jim is an astute manager and not a one trick defensive pony of a coach.One consequence of the modern game of packed defences is the accuracy with which passes have to be made in the opposition‘s half of the field. The little dink pass over one line of defence, a drilled pass into a man in the full forward line – they’re fantastic skills to see when executed well and Ryan Bradley, Martin McElhinney and Leo McLoone all gave us fine examples as indeed did the Mourne men.Stephen Griffin had another frustrating night in a Donegal jersey – he did almost everything right but things just don’t seem to fall for the Nauls man. On four or five occasions he positioned himself well to receive the high ball coming in but each time the ball managed to squirm from his grasp. He backs into defenders correctly, uses his strength, gets his hands up but the ball just always finds a way to escape from his hands.With Michael Murphy and Colm McFadden on the sidelines at present, the free taking duties were rotated with Griffin, McBrearty and substitute Dermot Molloy all having a go. So too did goalkeeper Paul Durcan but the Cluxton experiment didn’t quite work tonight with the big Four Masters man seeing both his attempts go wide. He’s been known to be a regular scorer for his club, even playing outfield on occasion, so we may see more of this as the year goes on.One huge positive from a Donegal point of view was the return to competitive action of Karl Lacey. The man is just a joy to watch, an incredible footballer. At the peak of his powers right now he invariably takes the right option, rarely if ever gives the ball away and has that brilliant knack of being in the right place at the right time. There’s always that ‘what if’ in the back of our minds in relation to his departure early in the second half of last year’s tussle with Dublin.Leo came more into the game in the second half, driving forward from half back along with Lacey and Anthony Thompson. Paddy McGrath was excellent on the night, both in his defensive duties and in his support play on the right flank.The last ten minutes were set up for a grandstand finish when Martin McElhinney finished off an intricate move to finish to the net. Down edged in front with a couple of quick points, including one particularly dubious effort with Laverty clearly picking the ball up off the ground before offloading. Brick had a great chance to level it but his effort floated wide and soon after he had a placed ball to square things up but unfortunately the result was the same.Its never good to start your league campaign with a defeat but Donegal have the perfect fixture next week, with Laois visiting O’Donnell Park, to get off the mark and get two points on the board. There were a lot of good aspects of our play tonight and considering we were short of our main attacking options overall the display was good. A similar display next week should lead to a win.

Local county councillor Seamus O Domhnaill said local experts are now appealing to people to allow the whales to die in peace.“I have spoken to a number of people from the National Parks and Wilflife Service and we are of the opinion that the whales should be allowed to die.“Nobody wants to hear that but it would appear that they will continue to beach now.“Nobody wanted to hear that this morning and brave attempts made made to keep the animals alive. “But it now appears that those efforts were in vain and we should just allow them to die,” he said.Thousands of people have gathered at the shoreline at Ballyness Bay where the whales were first spotted by a jogger at 8am.Five of the animals have already died and the others are in shallow water after being temporarily ushered back out to sea.The National Parks and Wildlife Service are expected to make a decision on the disposal of the huge creatures tomorrow (TUES). HEARTACHE AS PILOT WHALES LOOK SET TO DIE AFTER BEACHING ONCE AGAIN was last modified: July 7th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Pilot Whaleslast_img read more

first_imgMichael Murphy will be heading Down Under for the International Rules Series next month.Michael Murphy, Neil McGee and Patrick McBrearty have all declared themselves available for the International Rules Series in Australia.The Donegal trio will attend training on Friday night, as manager Paul Earley attempts to get his squad selected and settled as quickly as possible.Murphy captained the Irish side to a record victory in the last series in Ireland last year and is in contention to be skipper again Down Under. Last year, Murphy was caught up in a Club V Country row, the first test was played in Breffini park, Cavan less than 24 hours before Murphy played for Glenswilly in the Donegal SFC final.Murphy helped Ireland to a comprehensive win over the Aussies before he helped Glenswilly to only their second ever Donegal SFC title.In the aftermath of last year’s series it was questioned whether or not the compromised rules tests between Ireland and Australia should continue.Australia performed terribly and were trounced on both occasions, plus stories emerged that many in the squad were partying before each test and were treating the trip as a holiday rather than a serious competition. However, the Irish players pleaded with GAA chiefs not to scrap it, saying that representing your country was one of the greatest honours a GAA player could have.The Irish squad will head Down Under in November hoping to retain the trophy they won so comfortably on home soil last year.In the meantime they will hold training sessions and trial games over the next number of weeks, before manager Paul Earley selects his Ireland squad for the series. MURPHY, MCGEE AND MCBREARTY ALL AVAILABLE FOR INTERNATIONAL RULES SERIES DOWN UNDER was last modified: October 1st, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AustraliaDown UnderInternational Rules SeriesMichael Murphyneil mcgeenewspatrick mcbreartySportlast_img read more
