Awoniyi not ready to copy Salah, Mane at Liverpool

By on September 24, 2020

first_img Loading… The 22-year-old joined Mainz on a season-long loan deal last summer. Hampered by work-permit issues, it is Awoniyi’s sixth loan spell since joining the Reds in 2015. After initially struggling for playing time in Germany, Awoniyi has featured in every game since the Bundesliga restarted in May, scoring his first goal for the club in the 2-2 draw with FC Koln. It was perfect timing for Awoniyi, who recently told Tribalfootball that he remained in constant contact with Liverpool. With manager Jurgen Klopp deciding against signing Timo Werner this summer, there could be space for Awoniyi to compete with Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino for a spot in the squad, if his work-permit issues are solved. This could allow Awoniyi to spend significant time learning from Liverpool’s fearsome attacking triumvirate of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. But speaking to Tribalfootball, the Nigerian insists he wants to carve out his own identity within Klopp’s squad. “The truth is, I always just want to be me on the football pitch,” he said. “And the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino prove everything is achievable, especially from Mane and Salah. “But Firmino is totally different and amazingly fantastic from many centre forwards that I have watched.” Reds boss Jurgen Klopp started his coaching career with Mainz after retiring as a player in 2001. The German spent seven years as manager of Die Nullfünfer, winning promotion to the Bundesliga in 2004. read also:Too early to decide on Awoniyi’s future, says Mainz manager And Awoniyi says the presence of Klopp remains strong at Opel Arena. He added: “For me I think everyone felt his presence everywhere not only in Mainz but everywhere he had been to as a coach.

Late call on Sizing target

By on September 21, 2020

first_img The 11-year-old won Punchestown’s two-mile feature 12 months ago, but was beaten 19 lengths by Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham last month. Sizing Europe has yet to tackle three miles and a furlong, but he has run well without winning when tried over three miles. “I’m not sure. I want to discuss it with Ann and Alan Potts and we’ll decide in the next couple of days, obviously,” De Bromhead told At The Races. “I just don’t know at the moment what we’ll do. We’ll see what way the ground is going and now we know Sprinter Sacre is confirmed and coming over, we will just go over it all and make a decision. “They are talking about rain again on Sunday. I think Richie Galway, the manager there, is predicting starting on soft ground and possibly drying, but I’ve not spoken to him in the last couple of days. “The last time I spoke to him he thought it might dry out a small amount, but I actually haven’t anything up to date so I don’t know. There is talk of rain tomorrow.” Henry de Bromhead will make a late call on whether Sizing Europe takes on the mighty Sprinter Sacre in the Boylesports.com Champion Chase at Punchestown on Tuesday. The County Waterford trainer has to decide with owners Ann and Alan Potts whether to face Nicky Henderson’s brilliant two-mile chaser for a second time or instead take on Sir Des Champs and Long Run in the Bet Online With TheTote.com Punchestown Gold Cup on Wednesday. The Sizing Europe team will weight up all the factors, including likely ground conditions, before making the important call. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

MBB : Keita posts career-high in scoring; Syracuse unhappy with officiating

By on September 17, 2020

first_imgBaye Moussa Keita didn’t miss a shot. For once, the sophomore center’s energy and effort made a splash on the offensive end.‘Baye was really good,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘He was just active. Moving and he’s playing with good guards that can get him the ball.’Off a C.J. Fair miss late in the second half, he fought through for the rebound and made the follow, putting Syracuse up by 23. It also concluded an offensive explosion for Keita, as he scored a career-high 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting in the Orange’s 98-74 dismantling of Albany on Tuesday. Deft defensively but not offensively in Syracuse’s (3-0) first two games, Keita brought it on both ends of the floor against the Great Danes.‘I was doing the same thing,’ Keita said. ‘Probably tonight I was probably more aggressive on the offensive boards.’The center finished with five rebounds to go with his career scoring night. All five were offensive boards. And that allowed him to play one of the best all-around games of his career.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the first half, Keita sprinted at the front of the pack as Syracuse was in transition, taking a feed from Michael Carter-Williams to put Syracuse up 13.Keita later made post moves on his Albany defender, finishing with a two-handed slam in the second half.On a team with so many weapons, Keita’s performance just adds another to the arsenal if he stays consistent.‘You never know what can happen on this team, like tonight Baye had 14,’ SU guard Dion Waiters said. ‘Career high, probably. So it’s things like that and I was finding Baye a lot, he was active down there, he was running the floor, so I had to reward the big fella.’Keita stayed aggressive on the defensive end, too. Syracuse was up 65-43 in the second half when Albany guard Logan Aronhalt drove in from the left side of the baseline. He tried shooting from mid-range, but Keita was there for an emphatic swat, sending the Orange on a fast break.Boeheim said the production of both Keita and Fab Melo, who had eight points and seven rebounds, is a good sign.‘Baye’s active, he moves and he gets some easy baskets,’ Boeheim said. ‘He had 14 and Fab had eight, that’s pretty good production.’Syracuse overcomes 23 foul calls Clarence Armstrong signaled a charge on Gerardo Suero with 12:54 remaining in the first half. The Albany guard had sprinted full speed toward the basket, colliding with Dion Waiters in front of the basket.From the opposite side of the lane, Tim Higgins called for a blocking foul and overruled Armstrong.Boeheim was livid on the Syracuse sidelines, and Waiters wasn’t much happier after the game.‘Hell yeah, that was a charge,’ Waiters said. ‘He was out of control, but for the first time I tried to take a charge, they called a foul on me, so I don’t know.’Suero tied the game at 16 by knocking down a pair from the free-throw line, a place he and his Albany teammates became familiar with by the time the game ended. The Great Danes attempted 33 free throws Tuesday and made 26 of them in a losing effort on Tuesday night.But the 23 fouls called on the Orange and the 14-shot disparity between Albany and SU left Boeheim and the players a bit frustrated with the officiating.‘We hadn’t fouled at all, we’d been really good about not fouling,’ Boeheim said. ‘But tonight there were some really unbelievably strange calls, and to let them shoot 33 free throws was shocking.’Though some of the calls were questionable, like the block on Waiters, others were a result of Syracuse’s sloppy defense.Suero went to the line 12 times Tuesday, drawing multiple reach-in fouls as he drove to the basket. Similarly, James Southerland was called for over-the-back fouls against smaller defenders after failing to get in good rebounding positions.Fortunately, those mistakes can be fixed, and Boeheim said the team will work on them the rest of the week. The same errors that didn’t prove costly against Albany could certainly be the difference between a win and a loss in a Big East game with a team that can match Syracuse’s size and athleticism.‘That’s a lot of foul shots,’ Boeheim said. ‘We need to do better. We can’t be putting people on the foul line 33 times.’mjcohe02@syr.edumcooperj@syr.edu Comments Published on November 15, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Redskins’ Adrian Peterson to pay $2.4M on defaulted loan, report says

By on August 16, 2020

first_imgAdrian Peterson has defaulted on another multimillion-dollar loan, the Baltimore Business Journal reported, citing court records.The Redskins running back has been ordered to pay nearly $2.4 million to a lending service after he defaulted on a $4 million loan Raiders owner Mark Davis: Families of Hall of Famers should get rings, too Ezekiel Elliott apologizes after meeting with Roger Goodell: ‘I made a poor decision’ “Adrian is working with the lender,” Peterson’s attorney, Doug Wolfe, told the Baltimore Business Journal. “We did know the filing was coming. It’s more of a procedural thing than anything else. It’s not currently going to be responded to. We are in negotiations to resolve the matter.”Peterson, who played with the Vikings from 2007-16, also borrowed $2.4 million in May 2016 from another lender. He defaulted after just five months and was ordered by a Minnesota court in October 2017 to pay back about $600,000. According to the court documents, Democracy Capital Corp. of Bethesda, Maryland, sued Peterson in June claiming he failed to pay the balance of the loan he took out in April 2016 that was due in February 2018.The loan carried a 15 percent interest rate but that jumped to 23 percent when Peterson didn’t make the initial repayment of $200,000 in July 2017, the report noted. After the company received a $1.65 million payment in July 2018, another payment of $50,000 was made in December 2018. Related News Peterson, 34, is entering his 13th season in the league and, after playing 2018 with the Redskins, signed a two-year deal worth $5 million earlier this year to remain in Washington. If he plays out both seasons of the contract, it would push him past $100 million in career earnings, according to Spotrac.He split the 2017 season between the Saints and Cardinals after spending the previous 10 years with the Vikings.He finished with 1,042 yards rushing for the Redskins last season.

So tough not to sweat the small stuff at hot, humid US Open

By on January 18, 2020

first_imgAllen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title And a day later, Novak Djokovic’s quarterfinal opponent made an unusual plea to leave the court at 2-all, right in the middle of a set, so he could change out of his drenched clothes and sneakers — and Djokovic was OK with it, because it gave him a chance to remove his shirt and chill out for a bit.Djokovic leaned back, put his hands behind his head and stretched his legs Wednesday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium, looking more like someone relaxing by the pool than a guy in the grind of a Grand Slam match.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Don’t sweat the small stuff? Try telling that to Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and all of the other players, ball boys and girls, spectators and everyone else dripping through this most uncomfortable of U.S. Opens, where it’s not just the heat, it’s the humidity.“I personally have never sweat as much as I have here. Incredible. I mean, I have to take at least 10 shirts for every match,” said Djokovic, a two-time champion at Flushing Meadows who faces 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori in the semifinals Friday. “It’s, literally, after two games, you’re soaking.” Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “I actually don’t think it’s that hot. Sorry,” Osaka said after her quarterfinal victory. “I don’t know, I think it’s because I’m used to the Florida heat. So yeah, I kind of enjoyed it. I like sweating.”It’s been so unusually muggy that the U.S. Tennis Association, which runs the Open, made up a rule on the fly to offer some help to the men, letting them take a 10-minute break between the third and fourth sets of a match that goes that long if it’s too hot.There already was a rule on the women’s tour offering that sort of pause between the second and third sets.When junior and wheelchair matches were suspended Thursday, it meant things got bad enough to warrant some sort of concession to the heat on seven of the tournament’s 11 days.Some, including Djokovic, have wondered whether the retractable roof on Ashe could be closed to allow the air-circulation system to reduce humidity. But tournament policy is that the stadium can only be covered when it’s raining or showers are predicted, as was the case ahead of the women’s semifinals Thursday night.“Nobody remembers players dealing with these type of heat and humidity conditions for this extended period of time. We understand the conditions are very tough inside of Arthur Ashe Stadium. Players are talking about. We hear them,” USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier said.“It’s an open-ended question: What can be done now?” he said. “There’s no magical solution to this.”He said that the four doors in the 23,771-seat main arena’s corners are being propped open during matches, but the effect has been negligible.Federer said he had a hard time breathing. The man who beat Federer, 55th-ranked John Millman, said it was hard to hold his racket. It was Millman, in his loss to Djokovic, who received permission for the unusual mid-set outfit swap because he was leaving sweat all over the court.“Whether it’s night or day, we just don’t have air down there,” Djokovic said. “It feels like sauna.” MOST READ Steph Curry gets sweet Manila welcome, tries ‘halo-halo’ Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anewcenter_img FILE – In this Sept. 4, 2018, file photo, Rafael Nadal, of Spain, wears a cooling vest and has a towel with ice placed around his neck during a changeover in his match against Dominic Thiem, of Austria, during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, in New York.

(AP Photo/Adam Hunger, File)NEW YORK— Roger Federer positioned a tiny black fan so it would blow air right at his face during changeovers in a bid to cool off during what became a stunning loss at the U.S. Open.Rafael Nadal piled up so many soaked white towels next to his sideline bench the following night that it looked like laundry day. The man he beat after five sets and nearly five hours, Dominic Thiem, found it impossible to run in shoes he called “completely wet.”ADVERTISEMENT View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. LATEST STORIES He was among those who noted just how much even the stoic Federer — gasp! — was perspiring when he was upset in the fourth round on Monday night, when the humidity was about 75 percent. It’s exceeded that on other evenings, while the temperature keeps topping 90 degrees (32 Celsius), day after day, although it’s supposed to begin dropping Friday.“I have never seen Roger sweat. Ever,” said John Isner, the highest-ranked American man. “If he’s sweating a lot, and has to change clothes, then you know it’s pretty humid out there.”Isner estimated that he might have lost 8 to 10 pounds during his quarterfinal loss Tuesday in Ashe to 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro, who’ll meet Nadal in the semifinals.“Whatever the humidity is on outer courts or in the city,” Isner said, “I think it’s amplified on center court. It’s just we have seen it all tournament long — the girls and the guys out there, just sweating a lot.”One player who wasn’t sure what the fuss was all about was 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka, who represents Japan and trains in Florida.ADVERTISEMENT Given all of the sweating going on, he was asked whether the players’ changing areas are smellier than usual this year.“What happens in locker room,” Djokovic replied with a smile, “stays in locker room.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anewlast_img read more
