Pochettino wary of Bale threat

first_img Press Association The Wales international may have grown at White Hart Lane but it was on the south coast that he honed his talent. Having graduated from Saints’ academy, Bale progressed to the first-team aged 16 and impressed enough in the second tier to earn a move to Tottenham at the end of his maiden season. The 23-year-old has become one of the world’s best since moving to north London in 2007 and this week picked up a clean sweep of gongs for the season’s standout player. Saints face the unenviable task of attempting to shackle Bale and Pochettino said: “He is a very decisive player – an amazing player because of his speed, strength and goalscoring abilities.” The Southampton manager added: “He has shown that throughout the season this year so I rate him very highly. “Our collective game needs to be very strong tomorrow. We can’t just focus on Gareth Bale – there are other players in that team that can raise their game. “In a collective sense, we need to be very focused and mentally ready as we need to be in every single game that we play in the Premier League. We always need to be mentally focused as you never know.” Bale is one of a number of high-profile players to have left Saints in recent years after coming through the club’s youth system. Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are other notable departures but Pochettino believes the days of selling young talent are over. “With this current club’s ambition, dedication and vision for the future, it would be very hard for Gareth Bale to leave this club,” said the Argentinian, who last week spoke of his Champions League ambitions. “Right now, our mentality is to keep our best players and we spoke that with Nicola [Cortese, executive chairman] from the first day. We want to keep our greatest talents but at the same time now we need more time in order to develop our greatest talents as it happened with Bale, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott. “Now we need to be able to keep our greatest players, our greatest talents like Luke Shaw and James Ward-Prowse, in order for them to develop their football and become top footballers. It is a shame we don’t have these three players available for Southampton now but that is our project for the future.” center_img Mauricio Pochettino believes Gareth Bale is an “amazing player” and one which would not have left Southampton for Saturday’s opponents Tottenham under the current regime.last_img read more

United make second Fabregas bid

first_img United confirmed last Monday that they had made a first offer for the former Arsenal star, and manager David Moyes said at a press conference in Yokohama that a second offer had been lodged. Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward returned to the UK ahead of schedule last Wednesday to carry out some urgent transfer business, and Moyes confirmed: “As I understand it, Ed had a response (to the first offer). We have made a second offer but Ed is dealing with it rather than me.” So far, United have not made any new signings this summer, other than Uruguay Under-20 star Guillermo Varela. And whilst Moyes accepts there may come a time when he has to walk away from the deal, that position has not been reached yet. “I think a point does come,” said Moyes. “But when you are interested in good players you want to give it every opportunity to materialise. I will hope things will continue to move forward. “At this moment in time I can only tell you Ed Woodward is working hard to try and make the deals happen. We hope some of them will fall into place shortly.” In addition to Fabregas, Moyes has also been linked with marquee signings Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, plus Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini. So far though, there has been no reinforcements. And Moyes admitted he can understand why some fans are nervous. “I can understand that feeling,” he said. “But there have been quite a few changes. Other managers have changed their clubs too and everybody thought this might be the summer when transfers are done later in the month. “That was always the thought I had when I came into the club. You have to remember I only started on July 1, so in truth I have only been in the job three weeks at this present time.” Manchester United have made a second bid for Barcelona and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Lambert banking on Bayern boost

first_imgAston Villa fans will hope to see the benefits of a meeting of minds between manager Paul Lambert and Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola this week. “I’ve been away for a couple of days so I don’t know anything about all that,” he said. “I can’t get involved in it. Managers being criticised has come into the game more and more. I don’t think it’s nice and it doesn’t help the team. “Nigel’s a good guy, I’ve met him a few times. I don’t know anything about it as I’ve been away, so I’ll probably leave it at that. “It’s not nice when it happens to you. It’s come more into the game, with the banners etc too. It can hurt the team and the team is the most important thing. “I don’t like it. I don’t like seeing things like that. I know how hard the job is and it’s not nice. It’s a ‘free hit’, to have a go at the manager with a banner or chants. “On the whole the fans have been fantastic with me here.” Lambert confirmed he had spoken to Roy Keane this week following his assistant’s departure from the club. Keane quit just months into his role to focus on his primary job as Republic of Ireland number two, but Lambert, who has yet to focus on finding a replacement, insisted the split was amicable. “I spoke to Roy after the Palace game (Tuesday’s 1-0 win) about the reason’s it’s happened and there’s been no problem,” he said. Press Association “I was watching them train and had some meetings with people,” he said. “It was a good experience for me. “I know people there. It was absolutely brilliant, first class. “We (Lambert and Guardiola) had a really good chat. I also know Matthias Sammer (the Bayern sporting director and former Dortmund team-mate of Lambert) as well. “I met a few people there and it’s an absolutely first-class football club. “It was brilliant. A real eye-opener.” The Scot was reluctant to disclose exactly what he had learned. “I think what I saw there should probably stay in my own head,” he said. “If you want to see it, maybe go and try and have a look.” Lambert goes up against Leicester counterpart Nigel Pearson in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday and was reluctant to comment on the Foxes manager’s midweek spat with a supporter. Lambert flew to Germany to spend time watching the German giants train and sit down with former Barcelona coach Guardiola. The Villa boss has extensive contacts in the Bundesliga from his playing career with Borussia Dortmund and took full advantage with an “eye-opening” trip to Bavaria. last_img read more

Lens joins Sunderland

first_img Press Association It is understood the Black Cats have paid a fee in the region of £8million for the 27-year-old, who can play on the wing or as a forward. He is reunited with head coach Dick Advocaat, having previously played under him at PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar. Holland midfielder Jeremain Lens has completed his move from Dynamo Kiev to Sunderland, signing a four-year contract with the Wearside club on Wednesday. center_img Advocaat said: “We have signed an international player and I am delighted to welcome him to Sunderland. “He is a very well-known player in Europe and has played over 30 games for the Dutch national side, which shows his calibre. “I have worked with him twice already, at PSV and AZ, so I know him well; he is fast and he has scored goals everywhere he has played so that will help the team.” Lens brings experience of both the Champions League and Europa League to the Stadium of Light, and also has a number of honours to his name, having won the Eredivisie with AZ in 2009, the KNVB Cup with PSV in 2012 and the Ukrainian Premier League with Dynamo this past season. Black Cats sporting director Lee Congerton said: “We’re absolutely delighted to sign a player of Jeremain’s quality, who has Champions League experience and is a regular for Holland, one of the world’s strongest national teams. “He’s a direct and quick player with or without the ball and those characteristics are something we’ve been lacking as a side.” Lens’ arrival completes a mixed day for Sunderland in the transfer market as they saw a move for Zenit St Petersburg defender Nicolas Lombaerts fall through. Sources close to the club have indicated that the deal fell apart because of an issue picked up by medics. Rumours that the 30-year-old Belgium international had failed a medical began to circulate on Tuesday evening, and it is understood that a proposed £5million transfer has now been put on hold. last_img read more

Cricket News Ashes Test: Smith’s brave 92 after sickening blow leaves England with slender lead

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. London: Australia batsman Steve Smith just missed his third Ashes hundred in as many innings after returning following a sickening blow to the neck from a Jofra Archer bouncer on the fourth day of the second Test against England at Lord’s on Saturday. Smith’s 92 was the centrepiece of Australia’s 250 all out in reply to England’s first innings 258.The star batsman had made 80 when he was felled by a bouncer from World Cup-winner Archer, making his Test debut, timed at 92.4 mph. The ball struck him on the side of the neck and head.Smith, fell face forward onto the ground. He was wearing a helmet without the additional neck protection that was introduced following the death of Phillip Hughes after his former Australia team-mate was hit by a bouncer in a 2014 domestic Sheffield Shield match in Sydney.Smith, who had marked his comeback Test following a 12-month ball-tampering ban, with innings of 144 and 142 in Australia’s 251-run win in the series opener at Edgbaston last week, received several minutes of on-field treatment involving both teams’ medical staff.He got to his feet but eventually retired hurt, with Smith receiving a generous round of applause as he walked back into the pavilion.Archer had previously struck Smith, then on 70, on his unprotected forearm with another bouncer during a fiery eight-over spell that cost 31 runs. And it was that injury, not the blow to the neck, which an Australia team spokesman said prevented Smith from fielding at the start of England’s second innings.“Steve Smith is off the field because of his sore left forearm and has been taken for a precautionary X-ray of that arm after being struck there during his innings,” the spokesman said.Earlier, Smith’ resumed his innings as soon as he could when Peter Siddle’s exit left Australia 218-7. From the second and third balls he faced on his return after 46 minutes off the field, Smith hit two fours off Chris Woakes—a slammed shot over mid-on followed by a backfoot drive through the covers.But on 92, facing his ninth ball, Smith shouldered arms to a Woakes delivery that nipped back and was plumb lbw to leave Australia 234-8. In total, he faced 161 balls including 14 fours.Smith turned towards the pavilion, signalling that he was reviewing umpire Chris Gaffaney’s decision almost as an after-thought before replays confirmed his dismissal.This series, the first of the ICC’s new World Test Championship, has seen the introduction of concussion protocols designed to allow injured batsmen to be replaced by a substitute—previously restricted to fielding duty alone. Smith assessed on pitch The Australia spokesman insisted Smith’s health had not been put at undue risk by letting him resume his innings. “Steve was hit on the neck below the left ear,” the spokesman said.“He was assessed lying on the pitch at the instructions of team doctor Richard Saw. Dr Saw made the precautionary decision to remove Steve from the field of play to have him further assessed under Cricket Australia’s head impact protocol.“Steve then passed his assessments and will now be monitored on an ongoing basis, as is routine,” he saidStuart Broad, leading the attack in the absence of the injured James Anderson, England’s all-time leading wicket-taker, took 4-65 in 27.3 overs and Woakes 3-61 in 19.Archer finished with figures of 2-59 in 29. Australia had resumed Saturday on 80-4 with Smith 12 not out and Matthew Wade, who also made a hundred at Edgbaston, unbeaten on nought.Broad soon had Wade caught low down by Rory Burns at third slip for an innings of six that took 45 balls. Smith, amid some typically extravagant ‘leaves’, completed his fifty when he lofted spinner Jack Leach over long-on for four. last_img read more
