PSG make light of Mbappe, Neymar absence in Parc stroll

first_imgView comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew The Saint-Etienne players were wearing shirts carrying the name of William Gomis, a former youth player at the club who was shot dead in the south of France earlier this week.PSG’s second goal arrived just after half-time, with Cavani converting a penalty, his third goal in as many games this season, after he had been chopped down in the box by Loic Perrin.With PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, preferred to Gianluigi Buffon and fresh from winning his first two senior caps for France, a virtual spectator, the hosts went on to add two more goals late on.Diaby, the 19-year-old who was sent on at the start of the second half in place of Lassana Diarra, helped set up Di Maria to lash a shot into the roof of the net for the third.Then Diaby rounded off the scoring after Cavani’s swipe at a Draxler cutback had turned into an assist for the teenager.Earlier on Friday, Nice shook off the absence of Mario Balotelli as they came from behind to beat Rennes 2-1 on the Cote d’Azur.A Malang Sarr own goal had allowed Rennes to take the lead, but Allan Saint-Maximin equalised before Pierre Lees-Melou’s 89th-minute winner for Patrick Vieira’s side.Lyon warm up for their Champions League trip to Manchester City next midweek by going to Caen on Saturday evening.France’s other Champions League contenders are Monaco, who face in-form Toulouse away on Saturday night before hosting Atletico Madrid on It was a fine win for PSG, who have already scored 17 goals in the league this season, and Thomas Tuchel is the first coach to win his first five league games in charge of the club.“We’ve won five times and that shows we still have a hunger to continue winning,” said Tuchel.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissHowever, there is little doubt that PSG will face a far tougher examination at Anfield in their opening Champions League group outing than they did here against Saint-Etienne.“I’m pleased also that we’ve played without having our heads turned by the game on Tuesday,” added PSG’s German coach. “I’ve got ideas (as to his line-up) but I’m still reflecting on them. I’ll talk to the key players and I’ll be watching Liverpool’s game against Tottenham tomorrow and decide on Monday.”Mbappe was absent as he began a three-match ban handed down following his red card in the win at Nimes just before the international break, and Neymar sat alongside him in the crowd, rested after playing for Brazil in a friendly in the United States in midweek.Being without the two most expensive players in the world was not a problem for the reigning champions, with Tuchel able to give Draxler his first start of the season while midfielder Marco Verratti appeared in a Ligue 1 game for the first time since March.There was also a debut for Spanish left-back Juan Bernat following his recent move from Bayern Munich, and while the visitors started well enough, PSG never looked back after taking the lead midway through the first half.Verratti’s ball over the top found Draxler in the box, with the German midfielder controlling the ball with his head and then nodding it over Saint-Etienne goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Pochettino faces tough task to lift Spurs after Bayern thumping

first_imgIn truth, reaching the showpiece in Madrid helped paper over the cracks after a rocky end to the last campaign in which their form dropped alarmingly.A summer of uncertainty saw key players including midfielder Christian Eriksen linked with moves that did not materialise, which has had an unsettling effect on a club that is desperate to claim a regular place at Europe’s top table.Tottenham have been patchy this season, with a B-string crashing out of the League Cup late last month at the hands of fourth-tier Colchester United.After that defeat Pochettino talked about “different agendas in the squad”, hinting that all was not well in the dressing room.But Tuesday’s punishing loss against the five-time European champions in their gleaming new stadium will do far more psychological damage.It was the biggest-ever margin of defeat for an English team at home in European competition and the first time the club had ever conceded seven goals in a home match in any major competition.Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has a huge job on his hands to lift morale © AFP / DANIEL LEAL-OLIVASFormer Spurs and England winger Chris Waddle said off-field issues were getting in the way.“I don’t think Serge Aurier wants to be there, Christian Eriksen hasn’t signed a new contract. There is so much going on off the pitch,” he said.“It should have been dealt with over the summer. Instead all the contract questions are still going on. It’s a shambles.”– Pochettino calm –It is impossible to know what Pochettino said to his players behind closed doors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but when he spoke to the press after the game he was measured.“I think we are very critical of ourselves, to find always the way to fix problems,” he said. “We need again to try to work, to try to move on. I think it’s more psychological now.”“The most important thing is to stay calm, no rushed analysis, no rushed judgement, no rushed assessment,” he added.“You need to show your quality like a man first. To face it like a professional. This type of situation you have to show your quality, how you are strong.”Spurs at their best play an incisive, fluent brand of attacking football with Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane a handful for any opposition, but they can be surprisingly brittle.The unsettled Eriksen was not in the starting line-up on Tuesday, dropped in favour of the out-of-form Dele Alli but Spurs had plenty of chances in a gripping first half before being rocked on their heels by goal from Robert Lewandowski on the stroke of half-time.The second half was a horror show as they fell apart, with salt rubbed into the wound by the fact that former Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry scored four times.Pochettino talked about how last season’s Champions League run was the end of a cycle and spoke of the need for a reset.“For me after the final of the Champions League was a chapter closed and now the club is in a period that they need to open another chapter and design a project medium, long-term,” he said.The problem he faces is convincing players such as Son and Kane that he is the man to deliver long-overdue silverware.Pochettino, now in his sixth season at the club, appears to have a vision for taking the club forward but he must communicate that vision quickly. And the players must listen.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tottenham players react after their 7-2 Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich © AFP / DANIEL LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 2 – Mauricio Pochettino has urged Tottenham to face their problems “like a man” but he has a huge job on his hands to mend shattered morale after their 7-2 Champions League mauling by Bayern Munich.The team are at a crossroads just four months after they appeared in the final of the competition against Liverpool, winning just three out of 10 matches so far this season.last_img read more

Sampdoria chief hopeful of raising Chelsea and Arsenal target’s release clause

first_imgSampdoria are working on raising Patrik Schick’s release clause amid interest from Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.The 21-year-old forward has been a revelation since arriving from Sparta Prague last summer, scoring 11 goals in 28 Serie A appearances.His impressive form has attracted the attention of the Premier League trio, while Juventus are also interested in signing him this summer.But now Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero says the club are hopeful of doubling his current release clause from £21m to £42m.Ferrero told Secolo XIX: “His talent is endless – he’s cold, clinical and clever.“Every [week] he’s getting better and better. We would like to raise or remove his release clause, I often talk with his agent and I’ll go back to it soon. I want to avoid mockery.“I would like to bring his clause up to €50m but obviously we need to review the boy’s contract.” Patrik Schick: The forward has been described as ‘cold, clinical and clever’ 1last_img read more

LISTEN: Swansea hero hails ‘brilliant’ Llorente and hopes he turns down Chelsea

first_imgFernando Llorente has been ‘brilliant’ in helping Swansea avoid relegation this season, according to long-serving midfielder Leon Britton.The 32-year-old Spain forward has scored 14 Premier League goals this term, with some vital strikes gaining valuable points against Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Burnley and Everton.Having been brought to the Liberty Stadium from Sevilla in the summer, Llorente has impressed in English football, and his performances in Wales earned admiring glances from Chelsea boss Antonio Conte during the January transfer window.Conte and Llorente worked together at Juventus during the 2013/14 season, and recent reports suggest the Italian is again planning to tempt the forward to Stamford Bridge this summer.Speaking to talkSPORT, Britton has made it clear he wants Llorente to stay at the Liberty Stadium for next season, having played a key role for the Swans this term.“Fernando’s come up with some vital goals in the moments we needed him the most,” Britton told to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“He’s someone who is very experienced and has played at the top level – he’s won the World Cup! That’s what you need to come to the fore in pressure situations.“He’s been brilliant for us all season.“I know there were rumours of (a move to) Chelsea in January, with Conte wanting to link up with him again, but hopefully we can keep hold of him.”Whilst Llorente’s performances on the pitch have been key to  Swansea’s top flight survival, head coach Paul Clement’s work off it has been just as important.Appointed in January with the club in the relegation zone, Clement has led the Swans to seven wins in 9 games – and has ensured the Welsh club remain a Premier League team for the seventh consecutive season.Britton admitted he is excited for the upcoming campaign, with Clement having an entire summer transfer window and pre-season behind him to shape the club in his own vision.The midfield added: “He came in in January and it was very difficult for him, but I’m sure this summer he’ll look to reshape the squad a bit. It’s vital we keep the likes of Gylfi (Sigurdsson) and Llorente, and then I’m sure the manager will look to add players.“It’s going to be good for him to have the pre-season to really get to work with the players. That’s when you really get your good work and ideas across. Obviously he’s done that in his short time here, but I will be really interesting to see what he does in the summer.”last_img read more


first_imgAXED County star Kevin Cassidy has ruled out a  possible return to the Donegal panel.The All Star last night completed any hopes of a return, which had been sparked by hints from Jim McGuinness that the door is never fully closed.However speaking in Irish on TG4 last night, the 30-year-old Gaoth Dobhair half back said he believed he has played his last game for the county. Dara O Cinneide on the station asked Cassidy: “Have you or Jim McGuinness closed the door on your return to Donegal, is that the end of it?”Cassidy replied: “That is the end of it, yes.”He went on: “The season has started, the lads are back in training.“Even for me, it would have been very difficult to return and put in the same level of effort.” © 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law. Follow us on us on IT’S (DEFINITELY) OVER: CASSIDY RULES OUT RETURN TO DONEGAL PANEL was last modified: February 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalkevin cassiduKevin Cassidylast_img read more


first_imgThomas Pringle TD has today raised concerns regarding the claim that 32 new jobs will be created in Donegal Town as part of the announcement that an Irish Water regional office is to be located there.“Earlier this week the locations of Irish Water region offices were announced, including Donegal Town, which are to support the provision of water and wastewater services with between 18–32 employees being based in each of these offices,” said Deputy Pringle.Donegal Daily reported that there was unlikely to be any new jobs in the announcement as council staff would probably be re-located. Deputy Pringe agreed with that view.“While I most certainly welcome that one of the regional offices will be based in Donegal Town, Minister McGinley’s assertion that 32 new jobs will be created is simply untrue,” said Pringle.“The government statement on the matter acknowledges that these employees ‘will be based in each of these offices drawn from the local authorities, the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government (DECLG), Bord Gáis’ with some going through open recruitment, meaning job creation will be at a minimum.“Again, I want to make clear that I do welcome the announcement that Donegal Town is to be the location for a regional office for Irish Water, but the assertion that’s been made on job impact is inaccurate and such statements should be avoided so as not to cause disappointment. I would be delighted if 32 new jobs were created, but this is simply not the case,” stated Pringle.  DEPUTY PRINGLE’S ANGER AT IRISH WATER ‘JOBS SPIN’ was last modified: July 26th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DEPUTY PRINGLE’S ANGER AT IRISH WATER ‘JOBS SPIN’last_img read more
