Bale’s in Europe elite – Casillas

first_img Casillas spent the latter half of last season on the sidelines after injuring his hand and then slipping below Diego Lopez in the pecking order. He declared his determination to get back in the first team next season, but insisted he was not taking his place in the side for granted. “I have to compete. I would love to play, but I have to start from scratch. I am very excited now I am here, but my team-mates aren’t going to make it easy for me,” he added. “It’s good there is competition, because the coach and the whole team benefit from that. But there is a lot of competition for every position and my aim is to get back to my best and compete.” Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano also holds Bale in high esteem and despite the fact his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu would threaten Barca’s dominance in Spain, he feels the winger would bring “quality” to the league. He told Fox Sports Asia: “Always when players with quality come it is very good for the league. Bale is a player that has shown in the last three years that he is one of the best in his position.” Madrid have earmarked the 24-year-old Wales international as their major summer target although they have so far not persuaded Spurs to sell. Madrid-based newspaper Marca’s front page suggested Spurs were holding out for a fee of 145 million euros (£126m), which would far exceed the world record £80m the club shelled out on Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009. Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has described Gareth Bale as “one of the top three or four players in Europe” as the Spanish giants continue their pursuit of the Tottenham winger. Whether president Florentino Perez is willing to go to those lengths remains to be seen but Casillas, speaking on the club’s tour of the United States, said: “We are talking about one of the top three or four best players in Europe and it’s normal that his name is being discussed because he has all the qualities a footballer needs. “Every transfer is controversial in its own way, for better or worse, but we are speaking about a very good, decisive player. “I’m sure we’ll make another signing before the transfer window shuts.” Casillas also gave his seal of approval to new Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, who took over from Jose Mourinho last month. “I had the chance to meet Ancelotti during the summer holidays in Madrid and I’m excited about working with him,” said Casillas, who hopes the Italian can right the wrongs of last season’s trophyless campaign. “I spoke to him for just five minutes and I came to the conclusion he is a winner. He makes that clear to you from the start. “Whenever a new coach comes in it’s a new challenge and I’m happy about starting a new era. “Madrid need to start winning games and trophies after last season and fight for all three competitions.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Simpson backs boss Pearson

first_img “I’m not sure what happened and there are other players who can fill in for him. It makes us pull together and means someone else has a chance. “I was on the other side and thought it was a typical scuffle which you have every week. I was surprised (he got sent off).” Leonardo Ulloa had put Leicester ahead only for Ciaran Clark to equalise minutes later and Simpson admitted the Foxes only had themselves to blame. “We looked solid at the back and then got the breakthrough, but then we conceded a poor goal,” he said. “You can’t concede so quickly after scoring. You have to shut up shop and we are all so disappointed with the goal. “It was a simple free-kick and at this level you can’t give goals like that away. It deflates you a bit. “At whatever level, you have to defend free-kicks. It wasn’t anything special on their part. We should have dealt with that.” Danny Simpson has backed under pressure Leicester boss Nigel Pearson despite the Foxes’ 10-game winless run. The defender insists the squad are behind Pearson after their 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa left them bottom of the Barclays Premier League. Leicester threw away a lead for the third straight game and have not won since beating Manchester United 5-3 in September. Another defeat comes after Pearson’s controversial row with a fan during their 3-1 loss to Liverpool last week, which he refused to apologise for. But, despite taking two points from a possible 30, Simpson insists the manager has the squad’s full support. “We’re 100 per cent behind the manager and if we weren’t you would see it from the outside, from the performances, and you could say ‘they aren’t behind him’,” said the right-back, who made his full Foxes debut on Sunday. “We are trying to do the right things and it has to turn. A couple of wins and everything changes. “It’s fine margins, that’s what the manager has said. We know it’s going to change.” Leicester also face being without Paul Konchesky for three games after he was sent off for clashing with Alan Hutton, who scored Villa’s second-half winner on Sunday. Pearson feels it is unlikely to be rescinded and Simpson knows losing Konchesky at this time would be a massive blow. “We know what he’s like and he has been a top player for years and is one of the most experienced here,” he said.

Brilliant coronavirus-prevention messages with footballers’ iconic celebrations go viral

first_imgOver the last few months, a lot of work has been done to educate people across the world on the novel coronavirus and how people could protect themselves from contracting it.Various agencies and organisations – from the World Health Organisation and even Citi FM/ Citi TV have released precautionary notices to the public, warning them about things to avoid and things to do to curb the spread of the disease.Over the last couple of weeks, the disease has basically brought the world of sports to a halt, with leagues, tournaments and matches suspended or called off completely as a result of the rapid spread.Rather than despair, however, some fans have come up with an ingenious way to keep others informed while still spreading some football cheer.A couple of notices with pictures of some football players, accompanied by messages on how to prevent the spread of the disease have gone viral on Twitter.The images depicted the players in their trademark celebratory poses which synchronised with the messages.Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba was illustrated in a ‘dab’ with a message advising people to cough and sneeze into the crooks of their elbows.Another image of Paulo Dybala advised people to protect their noses with face masks.Arsenal duo, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have a pretty iconic celebration but social distancing is a pretty big deal when it comes to preventing the spread of coronavirus, so no fancy handshakes either.(Photo by Catherine Ivill/Getty Images)And Dortmund youngster, Erling Haaland might be setting the football world alight but he’s still a pretty chill dude, as people are encouraged to remain during this difficult period.Check out the images belowlast_img read more
