Football: Mourinho rules out Ronaldo move after United rout Galaxy

first_imgLos Angeles, United States | AFP | Jose Mourinho ruled out any attempt to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford after Manchester United opened their US tour here Saturday with a 5-2 rout of the Los Angeles Galaxy.United manager Mourinho is keen to bolster his ranks further after already strengthening his squad with the additions of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku.But the Portuguese manager poured cold water on the possibility of an attempt to prise United legend Ronaldo away from Real Madrid.“I’m not going to waste my time thinking about players who are mission impossible,” Mourinho told reporters after the win.Earlier, England striker Marcus Rashford scored twice with Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagging United’s other goals in a one-sided victory in front of 25,667 fans at the StubHub Center.New striker Lukaku was unable to get in on the goals after a 45-minute debut in the second half.Lukaku missed one golden chance four minutes into his United debut, with his shot saved by Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe.However Mourinho was satisfied with Lukaku’s “unselfish” display in leading the line.“Lukaku is a target man, he plays with his back to opponents,” Mourinho said. “A good thing today for me is to see that he’s a team player. He’s not selfish. He’s not obsessed with goals. “He was not that worried about himself, he was worried about the improvement of the team.”Rashford meanwhile reminded Mourinho of his eye for goal with a confident first-half display.The teenager opened the scoring after only two minutes, punishing an error from Ariel Lassiter near the Galaxy penalty area to dart in on goal and place his finish beyond goalkeeper Jon Kempin.The 19-year-old doubled his tally in the 20th minute, latching onto a clever pass from Juan Mata to make it 2-0.– Rashford ‘still growing’ –Mourinho later revealed that Rashford, who looks to have added a physical dimension to his game, was still growing.“It’s just the natural evolution of a kid,” Mourinho said. “He’s already taller than when I arrived 13 months ago. He’s three centimeters taller. He’s put on some muscle but without any kind of specific work because his speed is his most important quality and we don’t want to lose that.”Marouane Fellaini ensured United had a 3-0 lead at half-time tucking a low shot past the hapless Kempin after good work down the left flank by Jesse Lingard.Mourinho changed his entire line-up at half-time, mirroring wholesale changes made by the Galaxy.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

10 months ago​Newcastle dealt blow as Muto wins Japan call-up

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say ​Newcastle dealt blow as Muto wins Japan call-upby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United are disappointed in the news that Yoshinori Muto will be going to the Asia Cup.He has been called up to the Japan squad for the tournament that will take place in January.He was not in the original squad, but has been added in by boss Hajime Moriyasu.It will result in Muto missing around four Premier League games, along with some FA Cup clashes.While he has only been on the bench in recent games, it still means that Newcastle will be short on options in attacking positions.And it could lead to manager Rafa Benitez attempting to find a short term backup in the January window.Another who will be absent is Ki Sung Yueng, who will be with South Korea for the Asia Cup. last_img read more

Still no word on new Ohio State football coaches pay

(Left) Former Penn State defensive line coach Larry Johnson is reported to be coming to OSU as a defensive coach. Courtesy of The Daily CollegiateArkansas defensive coordinator Chris Ash is reported to be coming to OSU as a defensive coach. Courtesy of Arkansas Athletic Department It has been a week since Ohio State formally announced a new addition to football coach Urban Meyer’s coaching staff, and another is imminent, according to multiple reports, social media accounts and the school’s own directory.OSU officially named assistant head coach and defensive line coach Larry Johnson to Meyer’s staff Jan. 15. But the other new staff member, co-defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Chris Ash, has yet to be announced by the school as a coach.Aside from when Ash will officially join Johnson as a member of the Buckeyes coaching staff is how much each new coach will be paid.An OSU spokesman told The Lantern in a series of emails Tuesday that the Buckeyes have “only announced Larry Johnson as a member of the coaching staff.”The spokesman also said the Department of Human Resources has yet to inform him of Johnson’s salary following multiple email requests by The Lantern beginning Jan. 15.The Lantern has been requesting information on both of the new coaches’ salaries since Johnson was announced by the school as a coach last week. The Lantern staff requests for the salaries of new OSU employees after their hiring and is typically provided the information within 24 to 48 hours of submitting the request.Though he has not yet officially been named an OSU coach, Ash has since changed the bio for his personal Twitter account, @CoachChrisAsh, to reflect his reported new position.“Co-Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs Coach for The Ohio State University,” the bio reads, also including a URL address to the football page on the OSU athletic website, where he has yet to be listed.Ash is also listed on OSU’s public directory Find People as “Assistant Coach – Major Sports.” Ash’s working title is listed as “Assistant Coach – Football” in the directory.Johnson, who is set to replace former OSU defensive line coach Mike Vrabel after Vrabel announced his intentions to join the NFL’s Houston Texans via Twitter Jan. 9, is known for his ability to recruit and mentor defensive linemen who eventually make the jump to the NFL. Meyer called Johnson an “outstanding addition” to the Buckeye coaching staff and said he has “great respect for (Johnson) as a family man, as a coach and mentor of young men and as a recruiter,” according to an OSU press release.It appears Johnson has already been hot on the recruiting trail since being announced as a coach at OSU. According to his personal Twitter account, @OSUrushmen1, Johnson’s first day working for the Buckeyes was Jan. 16.“Great first day as a buckeye on the road ! Osurushmen1,” a tweet from the account read. Johnson, along with Meyer, was also in a photo posted to the social media site by OSU defensive line commit Dylan Thompson, @BRONCODE59, posted Monday evening.According to the USA TODAY coaches database, Ash made a base salary of $550,000 this past season at Arkansas, including a “max bonus” of $45,833. Johnson’s salary while he was at Penn State was not available on the database, and the school did not respond to multiple requests by The Lantern for the figure.In his second and final year at OSU, Ash’s predecessor, Everett Withers — who was announced as the new head football coach at James Madison University Dec. 20 — earned $585,000. Vrabel made $291,004.Both coaches look to strengthen a defensive unit that has gone south since Meyer took over following the 2011 season, a year where the Buckeyes finished with the nation’s 19th best defense. The unit finished 34th in 2012 and 47th overall this past year.OSU is set to kick off the 2014-15 season Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

Neville Progressive but not a successfull season for United

first_imgManchester United have more than certainly progressed from where they were last season, but it is still a failure since they did not win the Premier League, thinks Red Devils legend Gary Neville.They finished 19 points behind arch-rivals City in the second place as they lost 13 of the total 38 games they played in this campaign. However, this is four places better than the previous season and were able to qualify for the Champions League only because they won the Europa League.“In the league, which is where everybody wants to be measured, you have to say that second is progression from where Manchester United have been, but it’s not a successful season for Manchester United when you don’t win the league,” Neville said, according to Manchester Evening News.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“That’s the measure of the club and has been for 60, 70, 80 years, it has to be the league title you are measured by.”“To keep winning trophies would show they are still a club that are winning things and keeping that winning mentality. Manchester City have had the most outstanding of seasons and Jose Mourinho measures himself by title wins, not finishing second. Manchester United have had a good season in the league in finishing second but it has been inconsistent and they have dipped at times,” Neville went on to add.last_img read more

Eriksen admits Kane is under pressure to deliver

first_imgHarry Kane is under pressure to deliver in every game according to his Tottenham team-mate Christian Eriksen.Kane failed to deliver for Spurs in their last two Premier League games, despite breaking his deadlock in August.The striker has faced criticism this season for his poor scoring form and there have been calls from different pundits to rest the player after a hectic World Cup campaign.“Everyone expects him to score three goals every game,” Eriksen told the Independent.“As a team we know we have to feed him, but in a team that is losing it is very difficult to score goals, even one that keeps creating chances.“I know Harry wants to score more, and so do the rest of the team. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who is scoring and who is not scoring. It’s about winning games.”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.But Eriksen has brushed aside fatigue claims as they resume their Champions League campaign away to Serie A giants Inter on Tuesday.“We are not tired after the World Cup. Everyone has had near enough the same break,” Eriksen added.“Of course we are unfortunate we had so many players going so far in the tournament, which meant they started their pre-season later.“But our performances have had nothing to do with tiredness. And personally, I haven’t felt tired.“There is no better place to put things right than at the San Siro. It’s the perfect stadium to play in.“And there will be no better way to start a Champions League campaign than with a win at the San Siro. It’s going to be an exciting game.”last_img read more
