AC Milan’s Strinic diagnosed with heart condition, takes break from football

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Milan (AFP) – Croatian international defender Ivan Strinic has been forced to take a break from football after being diagnosed with a heart condition, his new Serie A club AC Milan revealed on Saturday. The 31-year-old — a key member of the Croatian team that reached the World Cup final this summer — signed a three-year deal with Milan in July but has not yet played for the club. In a statement the club said that during a routine check-up it was discovered that the player was suffering from a heart problem and would need to take a break. “During routine medical tests, carried out on all professional athletes in Italy, it was found that Ivan Strinic suffers from the beginnings of hypertrophy in the cardiac muscle which will need further tests following a rest period,” the club confirmed in a statement published on Milan’s official website. Strinic was expected Continue reading "AC Milan’s Strinic diagnosed with heart condition, takes break from football"

Klopp wary of Benteke threat as Liverpool head to Palace

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Jurgen Klopp has warned Liverpool to beware of the threat posed by Christian Benteke when the title challengers face their former striker at Crystal Palace on Monday. Klopp’s side underlined their credentials as serious contenders for the Premier League crown with an eye-catching 4-0 demolition of West Ham last weekend. It was the perfect way for Liverpool to kick off their bid to dethrone champions Manchester City following Klopp’s £160 million close-season spending spree. But Liverpool, who last won the English title in 1990, will have to surmount a wide variety of obstacles before they can finally get their hands on the trophy. And Reds boss Klopp believes an unheralded but potentially dangerous opponent lies in wait at Selhurst Park. Palace have a habit of unsettling supposed superior teams who visit south London and the muscular presence of Belgian striker Benteke is part of that threat. Klopp Continue reading "Klopp wary of Benteke threat as Liverpool head to Palace"

Stay focused, Guardiola warns joker Mendy

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Pep Guardiola has declared there is space at Manchester City for Benjamin Mendy’s sense of humour, as long as he maintains focus on the pitch. Left-back Mendy is aiming to build some momentum at City after missing much of last season with a knee ligament injury sustained against Crystal Palace last September. He returned to action in April, in time to make France’s squad for their World Cup-winning campaign in Russia, where he played once, in the final group match against Denmark in Moscow. Mendy has started the season by playing in two City victories, 2-0 over Chelsea in the Community Shield then Arsenal, by the same score, in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium last Sunday. Guardiola, though, was critical of Mendy’s positioning against Arsenal, saying that “sometimes you want to kill him; sometimes you want to say, Wow, what a player we Continue reading "Stay focused, Guardiola warns joker Mendy"

‘You can’t buy class’: Mourinho slams City over documentary

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Jose Mourinho accused Manchester City of lacking class in a scathing response to his own appearances in a documentary series about the Premier League champions. The eight-part series, ‘All or Nothing’ was released by streaming service Amazon last week amid much fanfare. The fly-on-the-wall episodes focus on Pep Guardiola’s magnificent efforts in winning last season’s English title, with the producers boasting of their unprecedented access to the champions over the season. But the Manchester United manager was surprised, and clearly angered, by the number of times he appears, or is the subject of comments, in the series. “I haven’t seen it but I know a few things about the movie,” Mourinho told reporters ahead of Sunday’s clash at Brighton.  “You don’t need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie. “My reaction is if you are a rich club you can buy top players, you Continue reading "‘You can’t buy class’: Mourinho slams City over documentary"

Ronaldo, Ancelotti make winning start to life in Serie A

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Verona (Italy) (AFP) – Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score but helped get Juventus’s title defence off the mark with a 3-2 win against Chievo as Carlo Ancelotti began life as Napoli coach also with a come-from-behind 2-1 victory at Lazio in the opening matches of the 2018-2019 league season on Saturday. The 33-year-old Ronaldo, who joined the Turin giants from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth 100 million euros ($114.5 million), clenched his fists with delight despite missing a series of chances after his team’s hard fought first three points. The champions were made to work after Germany international Sami Khedira opened the scoring after just three minutes at the Bentegodi Stadium for the seven-time defending champions. Polish striker Mariusz Stepinski headed in a 37th-minute equaliser for Chievo with Emanuele Giaccherini slotting in a penalty after 56 minutes following a foul by new Juventus signing Continue reading "Ronaldo, Ancelotti make winning start to life in Serie A"

Ronaldo gets win but no goal on Juventus debut

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Verona (Italy) (AFP) – Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo missed chances to score on his Serie A debut but helped Juventus get their title defence off to a winning start with a late 3-2 victory against Chievo in the opening match of the 2018-2019 league season on Saturday. Ronaldo, 33, who joined from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth 100 million euros ($114.5 million), played the entire match in the northeastern town, celebrating with his new teammates after the bruising encounter. “Cristiano held up well on his debut, it’s a pity he didn’t score but he worked well with the team after only seven days together,” said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri. “I was struck by how at ease he was in the team, he was very happy with the win at the end, he had a good match. “It’s a victory that we needed, to get us into Continue reading "Ronaldo gets win but no goal on Juventus debut"

Sarri salutes Chelsea’s winning mentality after ‘horrible’ spell

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Maurizio Sarri praised Chelsea’s mental strength as they snatched a 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday despite squandering a two-goal lead in a “horrible” period that left the Blues boss squirming on the touchline. Chelsea looked on course for an easy win over their London rivals after Pedro and Alvaro Morata put them 2-0 up after just 20 minutes at Stamford Bridge. But the Blues switched off at the back, allowing Arsenal to equalise through goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi. Shrugging off that collapse, Chelsea secured their second successive victory under new boss Sarri thanks to a controlled second-half display capped by Marcos Alonso’s 81st-minute winner. “We did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were horrible,” Sarri said. “It was very, very difficult because we lost the distances between the players and we were unable to cover the lost balls and Continue reading "Sarri salutes Chelsea’s winning mentality after ‘horrible’ spell"

‘I want to play’: Super-sub Hazard makes his point to Sarri

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Eden Hazard came off the bench to inspire Chelsea’s dramatic 3-2 win over Arsenal, then told Blues boss Maurizio Sarri he is desperate to return to the starting line-up. Hazard has started on the bench for Chelsea’s opening two games of the Premier League season after the Belgium playmaker only returned to training earlier this month following the World Cup. But Hazard is pining for a place in the team from the start and he believes his impact as a substitute against Huddersfield and now Arsenal underlines his case. He set up a goal in last weekend’s 3-0 win at Huddersfield and helped Sarri extend his 100 percent start as Chelsea manager with the run and cross that teed up Marcos Alonso’s 81st minute winner against London rivals Arsenal. “It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they Continue reading "‘I want to play’: Super-sub Hazard makes his point to Sarri"

Ronaldo makes winning debut as Juventus hit back for 3-2 win at Chievo

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Verona (Italy) (AFP) – Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo missed chances to score on his Serie A debut as defending champions Juventus snatched a late 3-2 win against Chievo in a thrilling opening match of the 2018-2019 league season on Saturday.  Ronaldo, 33, joined from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth 100 million euros ($114.5 million). Substitute Federico Bernardeschi scored the winner two minutes into injury time with Germany international Sami Khedira opening the scoring after just three minutes at the Bentegodi Stadium. Chievo’s Mattia Bani turned into his own net after 75 minutes following pressure from Leonardo Bonucci to pull the champions level after the home side had taken a shock 2-1 lead. Polish striker Mariusz Stepinski had headed in and an Emanuele Giaccherini penalty gave the Flying Donkeys hope of a rare win over the Turin giants. Mario Mandzukic had a goal disallowed late in Continue reading "Ronaldo makes winning debut as Juventus hit back for 3-2 win at Chievo"

Pochettino relieved as Kane gets off the mark in August

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Tottenham striker Harry Kane finally scored a goal in August as Mauricio Pochettino integrated his World Cup stars back into Premier League life with a 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday. Kane had never scored in August in 14 previous matches until claiming his team’s third goal after 77 minutes on an afternoon when the nine Spurs stars who reached the World Cup semi-finals continued to return to domestic action. “I’m very happy for him,” said Tottenham manager Pochettino. “It was important for him, important for him to feel the net in this period because, if not, we’ll make a trauma for him!  “He told me that after the game so he knows it’s good.” Kane’s goal had been set up by a surging run from substitute Erik Lamela and came four minutes after Spurs had regained the lead at Wembley through one of his Continue reading "Pochettino relieved as Kane gets off the mark in August"

Bielsa’s Leeds turn on the style, Middlesbrough surge

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Marcelo Bielsa became the first Leeds manager to win his first four games as the Championship promotion contenders beat Rotherham 2-0 on Saturday. Bielsa has masterminded three consecutive second tier victories and a League Cup first round success at the start of his first season in charge. The former Argentina and Chile coach’s 100 percent start has helped Leeds climb to second in the Championship table. Luke Ayling’s header broke the deadlock early in the second half of the Yorkshire derby and Kemar Roofe struck his third of the season in the 72nd minute at Elland Road. Ayling’s first Leeds goal was awarded with the aid of goal-line technology after referee Robert Jones had initially given a goal kick. Middlesbrough are top of the table after a 2-0 win at Bristol City. First-half goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga secured a third straight league win for Continue reading "Bielsa’s Leeds turn on the style, Middlesbrough surge"

Lewandowski saves Bayern from humiliation in village team’s ‘game of the century’

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Berlin (AFP) – Mighty Bayern Munich needed a late Robert Lewandowski goal on Saturday to secure a 1-0 German Cup win over Drochtersen/Assel, a fourth division village side who had described the occasion as their “game of the century”. In the shock of the day, holders Eintracht Frankfurt, who beat Bayern 3-1 in last season’s final, crashed out with a 2-1 defeat at fourth-division Ulm. Drochtersen/Assel, captained by a car salesman and featuring a tax advisor and a stonemason, welcomed Bayern to their village of just 11,500 people near Hamburg. “We can hardly wait for it to start — it’s the game of the century for us,” Drochtersen’s centre-back Soeren Behrmann told SID, an AFP subsidiary, from his desk at a car showroom on the eve of the first-round clash. A banner at the local church read: “We believe in miracles, we trust in God, we are D/A (Drochtersen/Assel).”  Continue reading "Lewandowski saves Bayern from humiliation in village team’s ‘game of the century’"

Celtic sink Partick after Euro woes

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Glasgow (AFP) – Celtic got back on track after a difficult week as Brendan Rodgers’ side clinched a 3-1 win against Partick Thistle in the last 16 of the Scottish League Cup on Saturday. Rodgers’ men lost 1-0 at Hearts in the Scottish Premiership last Sunday before crashing out of the Champions League qualifiers on Tuesday after a 3-2 aggregate defeat against AEK Athens. It was essential for Celtic to lift the gloom and Leigh Griffiths’ goal after 17 minutes gave the Scottish champions the lead on their return to domestic action at Firhill. Andrea Mbuyi-Mutombo equalised with 18 minuted left, but Moussa Dembele and Tom Rogic netted to get the treble winners back to winning ways. Celtic will be back in continental action when they take on FK Suduva in the first leg of their Europa League play-off on Thursday. With one eye on the trip to Lithuania, Rodgers Continue reading "Celtic sink Partick after Euro woes"

Etheridge saves Kenedy’s last-gasp penalty after Hayden sees red

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Neil Etheridge was Cardiff’s hero as the goalkeeper saved a last-gasp penalty from Kenedy to salvage a 0-0 draw against 10-man Newcastle on Saturday. Rafael Benitez’s side were reduced to 10 men in the 66th minute when half-time substitute Isaac Hayden was sent off for an ugly foul on Josh Murphy. But it was Newcastle who had the best chance to claim a first Premier League win this season despite their numerical disadvantage. However, on-loan Chelsea midfielder Kenedy wasted the opportunity as his weak penalty in the 96th minute was easily saved by Etheridge. Kenedy’s blunder capped a frustrating afternoon for Newcastle, whose travelling fans once again protested at the lack of investment from owner Mike Ashley with chants of “Get out of our club” throughout the goalless stalemate. But having lost their opening match against Tottenham last weekend, Benitez could at least take heart from the Continue reading "Etheridge saves Kenedy’s last-gasp penalty after Hayden sees red"

Ronaldo set for Serie A debut amid tight security in Verona

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Verona (Italy) (AFP) – Cristiano Ronaldo makes his eagerly-awaited Serie A debut for Juventus on Saturday amid the tightest security and excitement the Italian city of Verona has seen since a concert by Robbie Williams at Chievo’s Bentegodi Stadium last year. Reigning champions Juventus face Chievo in their Serie A opener at 6:00pm (1600 GMT) in the small northeastern Italian city famed as the setting for Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Ronaldo, the 33-year-old Portugal superstar, joined from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth 100 million euros ($114.5 million). Thousands of fans and the world’s media have been pouring into the town, which has a population of 262,000, ahead of the first game of the season. Anti-terrorism measures have been put in place around the stadium which has been closed off to traffic with 32,000 spectators expected in addition to hundreds of journalists and television crews from around Continue reading "Ronaldo set for Serie A debut amid tight security in Verona"

Bakayoko, Castillejo, Laxalt complete new-look AC Milan ahead of transfer deadline

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Milan (AFP) – AC Milan completed the signings of Spanish winger Samu Castillejo and Uruguayan midfielder Diego Laxalt on the final day of the transfer window in Italy on Friday, signalling the Serie A club’s intentions for the new season despite a backdrop of financial chaos. France international midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko was also officially presented at the San Siro before the summer transfer window closes in Italy at 8:00pm (1800 GMT) on Friday. “We won’t sign any other player. We have made eight new signings and we are convinced we have handed (coach) Rino Gattuso a younger and stronger squad than last season’s,” said AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni. Milan splashed out over 200 million euros ($231 million) on players last summer but finished sixth in Serie A and failed to qualify for the Champions League. The club was taken over by US hedge fund Elliott last month after the Continue reading "Bakayoko, Castillejo, Laxalt complete new-look AC Milan ahead of transfer deadline"

‘I’ve never been so happy with him’: Mourinho praises Pogba

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Jose Mourinho has broken his silence on his relationship with French World Cup winner Paul Pogba and insists there has been no disagreement with Manchester United’s record signing. A summer of discontent has seen repeated reports that Pogba wishes to leave the club he joined from Juventus for £89.3 million two summers ago and move to Barcelona. They were followed by claims this week that manager and player had exchanged angry words in a heated meeting after comments made by Pogba following last week’s opening league fixture against Leicester. Having starred, and scored, in United’s 2-1 victory, just four days after returning to pre-season training following his World Cup adventures, Pogba claimed: “There are things I cannot say otherwise I will get fined.”  But Mourinho, preparing for Sunday’s visit to Brighton, insists that argument never took place. “The truth is we are together Continue reading "‘I’ve never been so happy with him’: Mourinho praises Pogba"

Guardiola admits De Bruyne will be hard to replace

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
London (AFP) – Kevin De Bruyne will be hard to replace, said Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola after it was announced the Belgian would be out of action for three months because of a knee injury. The 27-year-old midfielder — who scored eight goals and provided 16 assists as City romped to the Premier League title last season — will not have to undergo surgery on the injury which he suffered in training on Wednesday. But his recovery will mean he misses the Premier League clash with the team many think will be City’s main title rivals, Liverpool, on October 7 and the Manchester derby on November 11, as well as part of the Champions League group stage. “For Kevin and his family it’s hard, but we accept it,” said Guardiola at his Friday press conference. “Human beings have a limit and these things happen. He will be a big Continue reading "Guardiola admits De Bruyne will be hard to replace"
