West Brom’s Jonas Olsson hopeful Zlatan Ibrahimovic will end career in England

first_imgWest Brom defender Jonas Olsson has urged Sweden team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic to change his mind and come to England. But Olsson is keen to see his international captain in the top flight for a career swansong. “He’s still at the top of his game. He is the strongest player I have been up against. I really hope he comes,” the Albion centre-back said ahead of Sunday’s game at West Ham. “Zlatan on his day is the most talented footballer in the game. “He has played under Jose Mourinho before and the only place where he’s not 100 per cent appreciated is in the UK. “I think he can play for any team in this league – he is still that good.” Olsson is targeting a Sweden recall after they qualified for Euro 2016, when Ibrahimovic inspired them to a play-off win over Denmark. Olsson played with Ibrahimovic at Euro 2012, when Sweden were knocked out in the group stage after losing 3-2 to England. The 32-year-old then had to return home for the birth of his daughter Annabelle and wants to play in France next year – but without the drama. Olsson wants the 34-year-old Paris St Germain striker to move to the Barclays Premier League when his contract in the French capital expires next summer. Ibrahimovic earlier this month said he believes it is “too late” to move to across the Channel after playing in Spain, Holland, Italy – where he featured under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan – and France. Press Association “After the England game I had to fly back to Sweden because my daughter was born the next day,” he said. “It was a really surreal 24 hours, the disappointment of being knocked out and the joy of my daughter being born. “She was born early so it wasn’t planned at all. Then I flew back, played the last game and came straight home.” But Olsson knows he must force his way back into the Baggies team after a groin injury only saw him return for their 2-1 victory over Arsenal last week following seven weeks out. Gareth McAuley is available after a ban, but Olsson said: “I have been in and out of the Sweden squad but it’s important to get minutes here. I hope I can play against West Ham. It’s nice to be back. “I have always enjoyed playing against Andy Carroll because it’s always a big battle and I’m sure he enjoyed it too.” last_img read more

Penn State : Key witness, assistant PSU coach put on administrative leave

first_img Comments STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary has been placed on administrative leave, university President Rod Erickson announced Friday.The move was announced a day after Penn State said McQueary would not be on the sidelines when the No. 12 Nittany Lions (8-1) play 19th-ranked Nebraska at noon Saturday because he has received multiple threats.McQueary testified in a grand jury investigation that led to sexual abuse charges against former PSU defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Football coach Joe Paterno was then fired by the Board of Trustees on Wednesday night along with President Graham Spanier.The grand jury report says that administrators didn’t contact authorities after a graduate assistant, revealed to be McQueary, said he saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in the team’s football facility shower in 2002. Authorities have said that Sandusky met many of his alleged victims through The Second Mile, a charity he founded more than 30 years ago for at-risk children.Sandusky was arrested and charged last Saturday. His lawyer has said that Sandusky maintains his innocence.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘Due to multiple threats made against Assistant Coach Mike McQueary, the University has decided it would be in the best interest of all for Assistant Coach McQueary not to be in attendance at Saturday’s Nebraska game,’ read a statement from Penn State Athletics released Thursday night. Athletic Director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz have both been charged with perjury after failing to report an incident of abuse in 2002. Curley is on administrative leave, while Schultz resigned earlier this week.‘It became clear that coach McQueary could not function in this role under these circumstances,’ Erickson said Friday, according to the Associated Press. McQueary was advised of the situation Friday afternoon, Erickson said.On whether McQueary would be fired, Erickson replied, ‘there are complexities to that issue that I am not prepared to go into at this point.’McQueary is a Penn State graduate and State College, Pa., native. He played for Paterno and was the starting quarterback of the 1997 team that finished 9-3. McQueary went on to join the staff as a graduate assistant in 2000 — the year following Sandusky’s retirement — and became the receivers coach and recruiting coordinator in 2004.Graduate assistant coach Terrell Golden is expected to assume McQueary’s duties Saturday against Nebraska.jdharr04@syr.edu Published on November 11, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Jon: jdharr04@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Huge Call! Referees Can Stop World Cup Matches For Discriminatory Incidents, FIFA President Infantino…

first_imgFIFA President Gianni Infantino has disclosed that centre referees will be given the power to abandon or stop World Cup matches in Russia next year as a result of discriminatory incidents.This is in line with a “three-step procedure” that provides officials with the power to stop, suspend and call off fixtures over fan behaviour and was trialled earlier this year at the FIFA Confederations Cup in the summer.According to Infantino, the fight against discrimination remains a “high priority” for the football body.Speaking on the matter, Infantino said: “We will be very, very firm.”“We can expect fair play in Russia. We’ll make sure that no incidents will happen.” he added.The aforementioned trial at the Confederations Cup earlier this summer included deploying anti-discrimination observers, a continuation of the monitoring procedure put in place for 2018 World Cup qualifiers and selected friendlies.RelatedInfantino Proposes 4-Year AFCON, Plans Pan-African LeagueFebruary 1, 2020In “Africa”European Clubs Vow To Boycott New FIFA Club World Cup FormatMarch 16, 2019In “FIFA”Australia And New Zealand To Host Historic 2023 FIFA Women’s World CupJune 25, 2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Liverpool stunned by late Everton equaliser

first_imgPhil Jagielka’s spectacular injury-time equaliser earned Everton an unlikely Premier League point in the 223rd Merseyside derby.It had appeared Steven Gerrard’s superb second-half free-kick would give Liverpool victory until Jagielka’s scorching, swerving shot into the top corner from 30 yards stunned the home fans.A draw will be a huge disappointment for Liverpool, who had come into the game desperate to kick-start their season after a sluggish beginning following their summer spending spree.But the Reds’ recent problems in finding the net again proved costly, with their failure to take their chances leaving them with one point from a game where they will feel they deserved all three, and just one win from their last five league matches.Everton have also been in lacklustre form but, although they have still not won at Anfield for 15 years, a draw and their resolute defensive display represents a decent return on the day.Match facts from AnfieldMario Balotelli had more shots than Everton, 10 to the Toffees’ seven Steven Gerrard is the top scorer in Premier League Merseyside derbies with nineLiverpool are unbeaten in the last 16 Merseyside derbies at Anfield with seven wins and nine drawsDespite the Merseyside derby having produced more red cards (20) than any other Premier League game, the last seven in all competitions have not featured anyThe game began in typical derby fashion with a flurry of early incidents, starting with Gareth Barry’s booking for taking out Liverpool’s Adam Lallana inside the first 45 seconds.There could have been an early penalty at either end, firstly when Alberto Moreno tugged back Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and then when Raheem Sterling’s shot hit Barry’s hand. But, in a week where there have already been 31 spot-kicks at Anfield – in the Reds’ Capital One Cup win over Middlesbrough – referee Martin Atkinson chose not to add to that tally.As well as fouls and misplaced passes, there were plenty of chances for the crowd to get excited about too.Most of them went to Liverpool but, in the continued absence of injured striker Daniel Sturridge, who cut a frustrated figure in the stands, the Reds again struggled to create clear-cut openings.Toffees keeper Tim Howard still had to be at his best to turn away Lallana’s header from Gerrard’s corner, and the American also punched away stinging efforts from Jordan Henderson and Sterling.But Everton’s leaky back-line, which had conceded 13 goals in the first five league games of the season, largely succeeded in keeping Mario Balotelli and the rest of the Liverpool attack at arms’ length. The pattern continued into the second half, with Liverpool having the better openings but unable to make the breakthrough.It would fall to Gerrard, criticised for his performance in last week’s defeat by West Ham, to change that in the 65th minute after Leighton Baines fouled Balotelli on the edge of the box.Gerrard curled his free-kick over the wall and beyond Howard, who got a hand to the ball but could not keep it out.Balotelli should have made it 2-0 soon after but hit the bar from Sterling’s cross and, after sending another shot bouncing wide, his wait for a first league goal for Liverpool goes on.It did not appear those misses would matter, such was the lack of threat the Toffees were posing. But Jagielka had the last word in dramatic fashion, thundering home an unstoppable shot after a headed clearance from a corner fell to him on the half-volley well outside the area, and his 10th goal in Everton colours will be by far the most memorable he has scored.last_img read more

Los Angeles Dodgers can’t overcome the Mets and catcher Travis D’Arnaud

first_img“For me it was making sure that he was not getting out front and getting his good release point,” said D’Arnaud, of Lakewood High, the catcher who went through the Phillies and Blue Jays organizations before landing amid all this velocity.“He didn’t have his best stuff today, but he showed what kind of heart he has, fighting out there and helping us out and going through those five innings.”Harvey, in fact, told his mates, “They’re not getting any more.” And the Dodgers didn’t, not until Game 3 was out the door. D’Arnaud helped push them there in the third inning, when he ripped Anderson’s first pitch over the left-field fence to give New York a 6-3 lead, which became a 13-7 win.Anderson is the No. 3 starter for the Dodgers, which is like being the fifth Beatle or the fourth Little Bear. Alex Wood was the other alternative for that role, and he followed Anderson into the fiery furnace. Yoenis Cespedes stroked a monster shot into the second deck in the fourth inning, and the rest of the night was an unsuccessful vigil to see if Chase Utley would stick his head onto the field. He did not, even though Mattingly could have easily used him as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.• Photos: NLDS Game 3 – Dodgers vs. Mets “Where the (bleep) is Utley!” a lone fan yelled in the ninth inning, with many fans already on the 7 Train.The Dodgers did have a No. 3 starter in Hyun-jin Ryu, but he got hurt and there seemed to be no strong imperative to replace him. Ryu has worked three playoff games over the past two seasons and has a 2.81 ERA with a 1.063 WHIP. The only other starter, besides Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, was Ricky Nolasco in 2013.The Mets, meanwhile, have the aforementioned smokeballers, and they have rookie Stephen Matz to pitch Game 4 tonight — yes, let’s go Matz. They also had veteran Jon Niese and super-veteran Bartolo Colon as possible starters.It’s nice to have alternatives in life, and the Dodgers probably should be applauded for not emptying their farm system to bid for Cole Hamels or David Price or Johnny Cueto, except that none of those proven pitchers really cost that much at the trade deadline.In games that Kershaw and Greinke did not start in the regular season, the Dodgers were a 49-48 team. And 64 of their 92 regular-season victories were against teams with sub-.500 records. That’s why this team has been viewed as a paper tiger throughout the Guggenheim years. The paper turns yellower if Kershaw doesn’t flip up a dandy in Game 4.Meanwhile, D’Arnaud is thriving. He already has the distinction of being traded for two Cy Young winners. The Phillies dealt him to Toronto as part of the effort to get Roy Halladay after the 2009 season. Three years later, the Blue Jays shipped D’Arnaud and Syndergaard to New York as R.A. Dickey went north of the border.“All these guys throw hard,” D’Arnaud said. “They all have great pitchers, but what impresses me is the command they have, and also the demeanor they have out there. I’m very fortunate.”“Travis has come a long way,” manager Terry Collins said. “Our guys like throwing to him. He ranks in the top five in getting strikes called. And now he’s swinging much better.”D’Arnaud wound up slugging .485 this season with 13 home runs. If the Mets win today, his greatest job in the world will get a little better. Unlike some of those in the Dodgers dugout, he will also get to keep it. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img NEW YORK >> Travis D’Arnaud does not want to be Kris Bryant’s agent. He does not want a piece of Draft Kings. He doesn’t even want to be Andrew Friedman’s computer programmer.“I’ve got the best job in baseball,” D’Arnaud said late Monday night (actually early Tuesday morning), as he and the Mets surged to a 2-1 lead in the NL Division Series.D’Arnaud catches Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom for a living, which means he works with more speed than the guys at Hendrick Motorsports. On Monday it was real work. Harvey, amped up for the Mets’ first home playoff game in nine years and the first ever at Citi Field, couldn’t command his high 90s stuff, and the Dodgers struck for three runs in the second inning.“We didn’t have that lead very long,” said a doleful Don Mattingly, the Dodgers manager, after he watched New York rake Brett Anderson for four runs in the bottom half.last_img read more
