Saka contract a priority for Arsenal, says Arteta

first_img The Gunners restart their season with a trip to Manchester City on Wednesday and it is likely to be a hectic period during the coming weeks. Arteta will need to juggle his squad but is keen not to place any undue pressure on the talented crop of young players at his disposal. He added: “They have to keep developing and one of the biggest challenges is always consistency. “They have been doing it for a certain period of time, for certain moments of certain games but to do it consistently for every three days for 94 or 96 minutes, that’s a different story. “In order to do that and develop the right way, they need the right players next to them, with the right mentality, with the right qualities, and with the right drive. read also:Arteta ready for challenge of Premier League relaunch “That’s what we have to do, we have to give them the right foundations in order for them to feel free to develop, without the extra pressure that they don’t need in these moments and they cannot carry on. “We don’t give them too much responsibility too early, because there is always a risk to burn them.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Saka has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the Emirates Stadium and has made 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and supplying 10 assists. He impressed as a makeshift left-back in the weeks leading up to the coronavirus lockdown, but is keen to revert to his more natural position on the left wing in the future. With Kieran Tierney now fit again, and Aubameyang generally deployed on the left flank, Saka could find starting opportunities more limited when the Premier League resumes on Wednesday. At the same time, Arsenal are also trying to tie down Saka to a long-term contract, with the 18-year-old’s current deal due to expire in 2021. The likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have been linked with Saka, and Arteta acknowledged the teenager’s situation is one of the more urgent ones facing Arsenal. “We are trying, as a club, to finalise the deals that are more urgent and are a priority for us,” said Arteta. “The ones you are talking about [Bukayo and Aubameyang] – they are both really important, not just for now but for the future of the club as well and if the club has something to announce, they will do it in the right moment.” Mikel Arteta has confirmed sorting out a new contract for Bukayo Saka is a priority for Arsenal alongside resolving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future.

Pakistan have made significant strides, insists coach Arthur

first_imgMICKEY Arthur believes Pakistan have made “significant strides” in one-day international cricket since his appointment as head coach, but admits there is work to do in the Test arena.The experienced South African took charge in May 2016 with his new employers languishing down in ninth place in the ICC ODI rankings.While there were growing pains at the start of his reign – Pakistan were beaten 4-1 by both England and Australia – they rose to the challenge at the ICC Champions Trophy in June, stunning rivals India in a one-sided final on English soil.While Arthur sees a bright future in the shorter formats, he accepts his younger players need to step up in Test cricket as they begin life without batsmen Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq, who both retired after the 2-1 series victory over West Indies in May.“We’ve almost come full circle. When I took over a year-and-a-bit ago, the emphasis was on one-day cricket, because that’s where we were lagging,” he told ESPNcricinfo.“We’ve made significant strides in that area with our brand of cricket. Players certainly are playing with a lot more sense of freedom, with us looking to strike with the ball, particularly in those middle overs, and our fielding.“The Test team was very settled [when I took over]. It was just a continuation, and we had that fantastic series against England [in 2016].“Now, though, the wheel has turned. Our one-day team seems pretty settled and is going in the right direction in terms of our brand, but we sit with a Test team that we need to develop, primarily in the batting.“But I’m very excited to see how the likes of Asad Shafiq, Babar Azam and Azhar Ali become our premier players. How they adjust to that responsibility is going to be fantastic.”Arthur pinpointed a specific moment during the tour of Australia that made him realise how desperately Pakistan needed to improve in limited-overs cricket.“The tipping point for us was when we needed some fresh legs for the one-day series in Australia,” he explained.“I’ll never forget taking the one-day players who just arrived out onto the outfield to do some work at lunchtime in front of a packed house at the MCG. The standards that those players arrived in was embarrassing. I was embarrassed to see those players run on the outfield.“Ultimately, that was a reflection of the culture, a reflection on our dressing room. The reflection I wanted on our dressing room was one that was thoroughly professional, one where we push the standards all the time and look to improve ourselves.”(Omnisport)last_img read more

Vickery meets with GOA president Yassin

first_imgTENNIS ace Sachia Vickery, yesterday met president of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) Juman-Yassin as the world-rated player intensifies her interest to represent Guyana at the Tokyo Olympics and other major international tournaments.The 22-year-old, born to Guyanese parents, Paula Liverpool (Kwakwani) and Rawle Vickery (Linden), had expressed her desire to don the colours of the ‘Golden Arrowhead’ at the XXXII Summer Olympic Games, July 24 – August 9 in Japan.Despite not being born in Guyana, Vickery, at her Grand Slam appearances, would identify with Guyana, even sporting memorabilia of the country’s flag, which caught the attention of Guyanese around the world.“I’m open to representing Guyana at the Olympics. It’s my home country and that would be something that’s a dream of mine in the future. Even though I wasn’t born in Guyana, I still consider myself Guyanese. I embrace the whole culture and I always love going back, so I do consider myself Guyanese,” Vickery said.Yassin had welcomed Vickery’s intentions, adding “This is great news … this is something the GOA is happy about.”Upon her return on Tuesday, Vickery met with Minister of Social Cohesion Dr George Norton, where she told reporters, “I always feel happy about coming back home. I actually made a last-minute decision to come just because I wanted to see all my family and kind of visit everybody, and also I got a lot of support when I was over at the tournament (in New Zealand), whether it was messages or people calling my mom, emailing my mom and just congratulating me about the tournament. So I was really happy to come back because I felt a lot of support.”Meanwhile, the World #102-ranked player will be hosting a ‘give-back’ drive today at the GBTI Tennis Court, Bel Air from 18:00hrs to 20:00hrs, “I’m also here to give back to some players, it may not be a lot, but I’m sure that the little token could inspire someone.“I know how it feels to be given something, especially something that you’re passionate about. So I have some racquets and other stuff that I brought back to give to some upcoming players and I hope the tokens take them a far way,” the always smiling tennis player said.last_img read more

Mayweather allegedly involved in kidnapping,brutal beating over missing jewelry

first_imgFloyd Mayweather allegedly orchestrated a savage attack on two of his employees he suspected of stealing his jewelry,TMZ has learned.Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports … the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes … but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them. We’re told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location. When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of his “people” —  who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs. Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died.  Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days. We’re told the men are adamant they never took anything from Floyd and it appears Floyd realizes that now.  But here’s the problem for the champ — sources familiar with the situation say the attack amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping.  We’re told the men have retained a lawyer.last_img read more

Packers’ Aaron Rodgers sees NFL mortality come into focus after NFC championship loss

first_imgAs with other great passers in their final years, Rodgers will likely see increasing support from the rest of his team moving forward. Yet despite his remaining talent, he doesn’t appear to be the same player as the one who won Super Bowl 45 at age 27. He isn’t hiding from that, or pretending his third NFC championship loss in six seasons doesn’t sting a little extra.Still, Rodgers is hopeful he can still secure an elusive second Super Bowl ring before retirement. He has said repeatedly that football became fun again for him in 2019. There’s no reason for him to surrender, even if he now recognizes his own mortality.”The execution and the moving pieces (of the offense) will continue to improve,” Rodgers said. “The window is open, and I think we’ll be on the right side of … things real soon.” Green Bay never got close after that moment, part of its 37-20 loss in the NFC championship game.MORE: 49ers defense has little fearThe Packers want to believe they’ll advance deep into the playoffs again next year. But Rodgers, once considered a lock for several Super Bowl appearances, is short on time. Preventable mistakes — a fumble and two interceptions — were particularly gutting for the signal-caller.”It definitely hurts a little more than earlier in the career just because you realize how difficult it is to get to this spot,” Rodgers said. “I don’t have the same number of years ahead of me as I do behind me.”The Packers under first-year coach Matt LaFleur enjoyed their best season since 2016. They went 13-3 in the regular season behind an improved defense and ambushed the Seahawks in the divisional round. Rodgers threw 30 touchdown passes to six interceptions, playoffs included.He’ll be back next year. Breakout running back Aaron Jones will be back too, as will receiver Davante Adams — potentially with more deep threats around him, as Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard enter their third year in the league. There will be cap room, and draft picks to fortify the roster further.Jones was among the most optimistic Packers players after Sunday’s defeat, confident the returning cast will be sufficient to return to this spot in 2021. Rodgers feels another year under LaFleur will help, too, with the coach’s preferred tempo implemented from Week 1.”When you have people like this next to you, you’re ready to go to war with them,” Jones said. “I love every single one of these guys. … Our future looks very bright here, and I’m excited to be part of it.”Several veterans, though, expressed trepidation — and outward frustration — at the challenge of regrouping and knifing through the NFC again. After Green Bay reached the NFC championship game in 2016, it missed the playoffs entirely in 2017 and 2018.”It’s hard to come back to these games,” said cornerback Tramon Williams. “I’ve been to four NFC championship games in 14 years.”Said Adams: “You either get the trophy or you don’t. As far as we’ve come and as much as we’ve done, it sucks to come up short.”MORE: Super Bowl predictionsRodgers at times showed his age Sunday. He had those three turnovers and totaled just 64 first-half passing yards. But he also showed his enduring skill in other moments, leading three scoring drives in the second half as part of his vintage desperation-mode groove. SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Aaron Rodgers stood three yards behind the line of scrimmage, hands on his hips, watching his Super Bowl ambitions turn to dust.The 36-year-old quarterback had driven the Packers inside the 49ers’ 30-yard line, hoping to make their 17-0 second-quarter deficit more manageable. But Rodgers couldn’t handle a snap from center Corey Lindsey. He watched the ensuing fray from afar, then slowly walked off the field once it became clear San Francisco lineman DeForest Buckner had jumped on the loose ball.last_img read more

Ceferin: “It is better to play with empty stadiums than not to”

first_imgUEFA President Aleksander Ceferin reviewed in Corriere della Sera the news that concerns the world of football after the pandemic of coronavirus. He spoke about when to resume competitions, how to tackle the economic crisis by being more flexible with the Financial Fair Play, the limitations and new measures that will be taken to be able to play again with full stadiums or about the exclusion of Belgian teams from the Champions League. and the Europa League for ending the season.End the season: “The priority is the health of the fans, players and managers. I am optimistic and I believe that there are options that allow us to resume and complete the championships. We may do it without spectators, but the important thing is to play. In difficult times, people will see It is normal that they can only be seen on television. It is too early to say that we cannot finish the season. The impact would be terrible for clubs and leagues. We must respect the authorities and wait for permission to play again. “Prioritize leagues to European competitions: “It depends on when it resumes, the leagues and cups can be played in parallel.”Deadline in Europe: “There is no deadline for the Champions League and Europa League finals. It depends on when we start playing again.”When will the national teams return: “I would say in September.”Guarantee controls to players and staff: “Authorities will only allow a fresh start if these measures are taken efficiently.”Play behind closed doors: “At first we will only watch soccer on television, but it is better than not doing it. The measures will be for a limited time and we will return to normal, with full stadiums.” Deadline to end the season: “I find it quite difficult to finish the season between September and October. It would have a huge impact on the schedule for next season.”Lighten the calendar load: “We will discuss the post-2024 international calendar and agree on future scenarios, but it is too early to discuss possible solutions.”Unify calendars in the future: “Full harmonization is difficult due to different weather conditions. In some countries it is not possible to play during the winter months.”Exclude Belgian teams: “Those decisions are not made alone. Football is interconnected. We have seen how important it is for UEFA and the leagues to work in coordination. The Executive Committee will review each case.”Economic damages for football: “Leagues are the basis of revenue for clubs. If they are completed, the financial consequences will be limited. UEFA, on the other hand, will lose a lot of money by postponing the Euro Cup.”Be flexible with the Financial Fair Play: “We have already suspended some conditions, but we will not rule out Financial Fair Play. It has brought many benefits, but it must be a help and not an obstacle, so we will be flexible.”The sanction against Manchester City: “The case has been handled by an independent body and is now in the TAS. It is not appropriate to comment.”Extend contracts and extend the transfer market: “We need to give more flexibility to clubs and players. It seems to me that expanding the transfer window is a good option.”The VAR: “It should only be used in case of clear errors. It is an important help but cannot guarantee that an offside by a toe is an absolute certainty.”last_img read more
