Guardiola reveals why Man United are one of the best teams

Read More7 Mysterious Discoveries Archaeologists Still Can’t ExplainThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes Loading… Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes rivals Manchester United are ‘one of the best teams’ because of the pace they possess in attack. The City boss watched his champions get ripped apart at the start of December, as Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side claimed an emphatic victory in the first Premier League derby meeting of the season. Pep Guardiola had nothing but praise for Man United ahead of the Carabao Cup clash. The 2-1 win could have huge ramifications for both sides in the long term but, for now, the attention turns to the Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday night. Speaking ahead of the game at Old Trafford, Guardiola had nothing but praise for his opposite number and predicted a similar set-up from the Red Devils. “It will be quite similar,” Guardiola said. “Of course at Old Trafford it will be quite different to here, but they are a team that are built to run. “When they can run they are one of the best teams, and not just in England, I would say, because of the pace they have – [Daniel] James, [Mason] Greenwood, [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford and [Jesse] Lingard. “I have the feeling they are going to run, one or two or three times, or as many times as possible, and we have to reduce the mistakes in the build-up. We have to be prepared for that but we have to do our game.” Rashford and Martial struck early in the first half of the Etihad on December 7, but the scoreline could well have been more emphatic.center_img City’s backline was in the midst of an injury crisis and looked shaky whenever the ball was played in behind. Nicolas Otamendi pulled one back for the hosts, but it was yet another debilitating defeat for the Sky Blues in their quest for a third consecutive Premier League crown. However, with John Stones back from injury and Aymeric Laporte set to return in the next few weeks, the Spaniard is refusing to alter his style too drastically. Rashford opened the scoring from the spot against City back in December.

Seifert: Bundesliga puts fans first

first_img In a statement on its website, fsf.org.uk, FSF wrote: “The FSF is against the proposals as they have been reported, and will be consulting with Premier League fans’ groups and individuals to formulate an appropriate response. “Once again the idea of potentially huge changes to the game has arisen without consultation with one of the groups who matters most – the fans. “If the reaction to previous incarnations of ‘Game 39’ and the idea of matches abroad is anything to go by, we expect this proposal to be met with the strongest possible opposition from supporters. “The potential impact on the value of season tickets, which would see fans of half the Premier League clubs missing out a home match, could be enormous. “Inevitably some of the fixtures to be moved will be either local derbies or other high-profile fixtures.” There was a high-profile objection from Gary Lineker, the former England striker and Match of the Day presenter. Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Reemergence of plans to play PL games overseas is a rotten one. Need to make game more affordable for fans not less. Disrespectful avarice (extreme greed)!” Lineker later added on Twitter: “The @premierleague have contacted me to say ‘stories are premature and there’s no plan currently for international games.’ Great news!” West Ham co-owner David Gold was asked about the possibility on Twitter, specifically about a fixture in America or Qatar. He replied: ” I’m sure it will happen sometime in the future.” Chairmen of the English top-flight clubs discussed the plans at their most recent meeting, and – although n o firm plans have yet been drawn up – the belief of those club chairmen is that they could cash in on interest overseas. Plans for a 39th game were dropped in 2008 following widespread opposition, including from FIFA and UEFA. Seifert is uncertain whether FIFA would countenance the idea, but was adamant it is not something that is on the Bundesliga’s agenda. “I think it’s a creative idea, I’m not sure it would work with FIFA,” Seifert said at the Leaders in Sport conference in London. “We have a completely different approach about our idea of German football. “For the financial side it would be maybe a good idea to play a matchday all over the world, but for the supporters who are visiting 34 games of that club, no matter if it’s snow or rain or wind or whatever and they’re travelling. “And on that game that has the impact that the team is going to be relegated and they cannot be there, because it’s in Thailand – I think this would not be an approach for the Bundesliga.” The Premier League is not alone in looking to hold games abroad. Italy’s Serie A chief confirmed on Tuesday that the Italian Super Cup clash between Juventus and Napoli will be played in Doha, Qatar on December 22, while the French Super Cup clash has taken place away from France for the last six years. The Football Supporters’ Federation announced its objection to the proposals. Bundesliga chief executive Christian Seifert insists the German league would not contemplate staging matches abroad out of concern for supporters after t he prospect of playing Premier League matches overseas arose again.

Cricket News Sri Lanka Routs Top-Ranked Pakistan By 35 Runs In 2nd T20

first_imgLahore: Sri Lanka’s inexperienced team earned another emphatic 35-run victory over top-ranked Pakistan in the second Twenty20 on Monday for an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Bhanuka Rajapaksa, playing in only his second Twenty20, smashed 77 off 48 balls in Sri Lanka’s strong total of 182-6 after captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and opted to bat. Leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga (3-38) then took three wickets in four balls and Isuru Udana provided the perfect finish by grabbing 4-25 as Pakistan was bowled out for 147 in 19 overs. Ten of Sri Lanka’s top players pulled out of the tour due to security concerns, including Twenty20 captain Lasith Malinga, but Sri Lanka’s second string surprised cricket pundits by outplaying the No. 1-ranked team in front of its home fans. Imad Wasim top scored with 47 off 29 balls but his partnership of 75 with Asif Ali (29) was not enough to stop Sri Lanka from registering another convincing win. The recalled Umar Akmal fell for golden duck for the second successive match while Ahmed Shehzad could score only 13 before both fell to Hasaranga’s brilliance inside the first 10 overs. Earlier, the left-handed Rajapaksa hit six sixes and four boundaries and dominated a 94-run fourth-wicket stand with Shehan Jayasuriya, who made 34. Shanaka propelled Sri Lanka’s total beyond Pakistan’s reach by smashing 31 off 15 balls.Pakistan’s poor ground fielding also let the team down as Rajapaksa and Jayasuirya both survived close run out chances early in their innings. “We didn’t play good cricket,” Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said. “We missed a couple of run-out opportunities that could have changed the game but they had a good partnership in the middle overs and we lost five wickets in the first 10 overs.” Rajapaksa’s half century, described by captain Shanaka as a “masterclass,” put Pakistan’s bowlers under pressure as leg-spinner Shadab Khan conceded 38 runs before he had the left-hander caught in the deep in the 17th over. Pakistan’s run-chase got off track early when Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam dragged the ball back onto their stumps off seamers Kasun Rajitha and Pradeep, respectively. Hasaranga had Shehzad’s leg stump uprooted before having Akmal lbw off the next delivery. A ball later, Sarfaraz left his team reeling at 52-5 when he played the leg-spinner’s googly back onto his stumps. Imad and Asif fell behind the asking rate, which creeped up to 14 an over before Udana broke the stand by having Imad lbw off a fuller delivery and Pradeep polished off the tail with three quick wickets. Sri Lanka had won the first match by 64 runs and the final game of the series will be played on Wednesday.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Other Sports Pro Kabaddi League: Bengal Warriors Lift Maiden Title

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Ahmedabad: A clinical Bengal Warriors on Saturday clinched their maiden Pro Kabaddi League title by defeating Dabang Delhi 39-34 in a pulsating summit clash here.Naveen Kumar was brilliant once again with 18 raid points for Delhi but uncharacteristic errors cost their title hopes in front of a packed audience, including Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, at the EKA Arena by TransStadia.The Warriors did not have the services of star raider and captain Maninder Singh but got support with his presence as assistant coach of the team in the final match of Season Seven.The pressure of the final got to the Warriors in the early minutes as Delhi stormed to a 6-0 lead. Naveen Kumar certainly looked charged up for the event while Delhi’s cover combination of Anil Kumar and Vishal Mane also seemed keen to stop any raider coming their way.The Delhi side clinched their All-Out in the 8th minute to open a four-point lead but the Warriors were a different side after the restart. Stand-in captain Mohammad Nabibakhsh picked up his game, clinching valuable raid points, as the Warriors quickly reduced Delhi’s lead.Delhi’s Iranian player Meraj Sheykh impressed as a substitute, picking up two raid points in pressure situations, but the Warriors secured their first All-Out with under four minutes remaining for the break.The closely-contested first-half ended with the scores levelled at 17-17. The Warriors maintained that momentum in the second half as they quickly got into the lead. Sukesh Hegde once again sizzled for the Warriors with some mature raiding, often getting the better of Ravinder Pahal in Delhi’s left corner.Perhaps the smartest move from the Warriors’ camp was to deploy the experienced Jeeva Kumar in a shifting cover role, depending on the raider’s strong foot.The decision helped as the Warriors clinched another All-Out in the 8th minute of the half to open-up a 4-point lead.Delhi’s Naveen Kumar clinched his Super 10 in the 10th minute (21st consecutive) but his side struggled to get a stranglehold of the match as Warriors corner combination of Rinku Narwal and Baldev Singh also got into the game.The Warriors inflicted another All-Out with six minutes remaining to open-up a 10-point lead. Naveen Kumar kept trying to script a comeback for the Delhi side, hitting the 300-point milestone in the process, but his work continuously got undone by uncharacteristic errors in the defence with the likes of Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal struggling.The Warriors’ defence held tight in the final minutes to secure their maiden Pro Kabaddi League title.last_img read more

The Latest: Italy urges sports to develop health protocols

The Court of Arbitration for Sport is to rule on whether the ban is valid but hearings have been delayed because of the health crisis.Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin says the virus outbreak means the parties in the legal proceedings should avoid a ruling against Russia because it would fracture the Olympic movement. Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___The nationwide lockdown in Italy has been extended through May 3 but Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora is urging the country’s sports federations to develop health protocols in order to resume activity on May 4. The incident occurred on the island of Madeira, his birthplace. He was observed shooting a ball at a goal with someone playing goalkeeper, along with two other people. They all appeared to be several meters apart.“Cristiano did solely a few minutes of exercize and from that comes no harm to the world,” regional health authority Carlos Ramos said.“All citizens can go out and do some physical exercize as long as they do not gather in big groups and keep their distance from other people they may encounter while exercizing,” Ramos said. “So I think that Cristiano did only what we have seen.”Portugal has been under a state of emergency for three weeks. People are confined to their homes, but they can leave to exercize individually.

Spadafora urges sports authorities “not to let these weeks be lost” and to urgently make plans for when the lockdown expires.Previously, the lockdown was set to expire on Monday.The extension came as the number of people in Italian hospitals and intensive care wards eases and the growth in the number of new cases and deaths is narrowing. Experts have said it will take a decrease in the number of cases to enter a so-called Phase II, allowing more freedom of movement to individuals but with precautions to guard against any new outbreaks.

UW gets boost from transfer

first_imgIn the beginning of the fall season, the University of Wisconsin men’s tennis squad was receiving the majority of the hype. Sophomore Alaina Trgovich is doing her best to make sure the women’s side gets its deserved recognition as well.Two weeks ago at the Milwaukee Classic, she went undefeated in both singles and doubles, coming away from the tournament as the runner-up due to the point system, but her dominance was apparent in the Badgers’ first tournament.“It was a good start to the season, and it really got me pumped for the rest of the season,” Trgovich said.Trgovich, a transfer student from University of Kentucky, has joined Wisconsin during a season where the team has set itself lofty goals, such as a top 40 team NCAA ranking. Regardless, her decision to come to the school was not based solely on tennis.The pharmacy major’s desire to play for Wisconsin, along with an open scholarship due to an injury, made the dream a reality.“I couldn’t see myself there [Kentucky] for three more years,” Trgovich said. “The academics here were also a big factor. It was a very smooth transition, the coaches and team are great. … I grew up in the Midwest, and it is really nice to be back here; I like it here.”But Trgovich’s goals don’t only lie in the classroom. She also has a set of goals that she wants to achieve before her career at UW is finished — such as climbing the individual NCAA rankings.“I would like to be ranked, and earn an individual NCAA tournament bid,” Trgovich said.Despite a conspicuous lack of preseason recognition in the form of a national ranking, it is likely that status will change, especially if she continues delivering performances like the one in Milwaukee.Trgovich is not the first successful collegiate athlete in her family. Her father, Pete, played basketball under Hall of Fame coach John Wooden at UCLA from 1973-75 and was a part of two national title teams.“He has been such a positive influence and great role model,” Trgovich said. “His experiences have been very helpful for me.”Trgovich’s next competition will be in two weeks at Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. After playing with two different partners in Milwaukee, she will be coupled with sophomore Jessica Seyferth in doubles, with whom she played as a prep athlete when the pair was the No. 1 ranked team in the Midwest.They are hoping they can pick up where they left off in high school and make some noise as a doubles team this coming season.Wisconsin has aspirations to be at the top of the Big Ten tables at season’s end. Trgovich, among other newcomers, is a focal point of the buzz around this team, and she hopes to help the Badgers accomplish their team goals as well as her own.last_img read more
