Lack of love the reason for Alexis’s Man Utd struggles?

first_imgChile head coach Reinaldo Rueda has suggested that Alexis Sanchez feels more love and affection with his national team than he does at Manchester United.Alexis endured a miserable 2018-19 Premier League season as he scored just two times in all competitions over the entire campaign, with United finishing a disappointing sixth in the table.His form has been much better on the international stage, however, as he scored his second Copa America goal in as many games in a 2-1 win over 10-man Ecuador on Friday.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona forward, who also played through an ankle injury, struck a 51st-minute winner to move onto two Copa goals, sending his side through to the quarter-finals in the process.Alexis’s well-documented struggles at Old Trafford have seen him manage just five goals in 45 appearances across all competitions since joining the Red Devils in January 2018.That form has seen him linked with an exit in the summer, with Serie A side Inter having been mooted as a potentially interested party, while a shock loan move to Palmeiras has also been mentioned in the press.And Rueda feels that Alexis’s struggles domestically are a reflection of United being “unbalanced”, suggesting that he doesn’t get the same levels of affection with his club as he does on the international scene.”He has the motivation, affection and some relationships that he has in the national team and maybe he didn’t have them in Manchester,” Rueda said after Chile’s victory over Ecuador.”He arrived at a difficult, inopportune moment, perhaps in the most unbalanced United in recent years.”Chile are guaranteed to advance from Group C after also winning their opening game 4-0 against Japan, but they must avoid defeat against Uruguay in Rio de Janeiro on Monday to secure top spot.Uruguay started with a bang as they too recorded a 4-0 win to begin their Copa America campaign, easing past an Ecuador side whose ill-discipline saw them shown the first of what would be two red cards in as many games.However, they struggled to a 2-2 draw with Japan last time out and need at least a draw to be certain of qualification to the knockout stages.last_img read more

Grujic returns to Hertha on season-long loan

first_imgHertha Berlin have signed Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic on a season-long loan.The Serbia international will return to the German capital for a second successive campaign, having turned down offers from Bundesliga rivals Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt.Liverpool will receive a £2 million loan fee as part of the deal, plus potential bonuses of £500,000, while Hertha will cover his wages in full and there will also be a penalty structure on game time, meaning the Bundesliga club will be charged if Grujic does not play.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Grujic impressed with Hertha last term, making 23 appearances and scoring five goals. The 23-year-old was desperate to secure first-team football this season in order to aid his development.Frankfurt could have offered European football, while Bremen used international team-mate Milos Veljkovic and manager Florian Kohfeldt to make their case, but Grujic settled well in Berlin last season and is happy to continue his career at the Olympiastadion.Liverpool will hope he can continue to showcase the talent which convinced them to sign him from Red Star Belgrade in 2016. Grujic was a regular starter for Hertha when fit, but saw his progress hampered by a pair of ill-timed ankle injuries.The tall, powerful midfield man has already made 14 senior appearances for the Reds but the last came in December 2017.However, sources have told Goal that the plan is still very much for Grujic to return to Liverpool and become an important part of the squad for the 2020-21 season. Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with Grujic’s attitude and maturity in choosing Hertha again as the Reds boss believes it is an ideal move for the player’s development on the road to being used by Liverpool.It is also considered significant that both Cardiff and Hertha, where Grujic has been on loan in recent seasons, have both been desperate to keep him for another season.Liverpool fielded enquiries from a number of European clubs in recent weeks, including Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and Premier League side Brighton, but Grujic’s preference was for a loan deal with Hertha. He has trained hard while on holiday in Mykonos this summer, and has joined up with his new team-mates for the first day of pre-season training on Monday.His departure is one of many anticipated at Anfield in the coming weeks. Rafa Camacho has already left for Sporting Lisbon, while Sheyi Ojo joined Rangers on loan earlier this month.Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Herbie Kane should secure loans to Championship clubs – Hull are keen on both Kane and Woodburn – while Kamil Grabara has interest from Germany, Belgium and England after his impressive performances at the European Under-21 Championship.Ryan Kent is wanted by Rangers, Aston Villa, Leeds and Middlesbrough, while Harry Wilson is expecting to go on Liverpool’s tour of the USA before a decision is made on his future.Anderson Arroyo and Taiwo Awoniyi are two more players who will depart, likely on loan.last_img read more

Kirk Herbstreit Reportedly Admitted He’s Bothered By Hate From This Fan Base

first_imgKirk Herbstreit speaks on ESPN about college football.ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit is used to seeing his Twitter mentions full of criticism from various fan bases, but this season, it’s been more than usual – and a lot of it is coming from one group.Herbstreit pushed back on the hype surrounding UCF during a College GameDay broadcast earlier this season, saying other Group of 5 teams deserved more credit.“This argument needs to stop being just about UCF,” he said. “I’m a big believer that if you play people — like Boise State used to do — you should be rewarded for that. Why are we focusing on just UCF when it comes to the Power 5? Because I think there are other teams out there that are as deserving or more deserving.“You need to play somebody in order to be rewarded. UCF, you need to not just be worried about being undefeated and trying to get in the top four, you need to look behind you at teams like Utah State, Appalachian State, Fresno State. These teams, on paper — which is what you want to look at a lot of times — are better than UCF and more deserving than UCF.”Hebrstreit has since faced serious pushback from UCF fans and the school’s athletic director even made a public statement.UCF fans aren’t letting up, either. The Knights continue to flood Herbstreit’s Twitter mentions and there was a not-so-flattering sign in the background of this week’s College GameDay (that ESPN made the fans take down).Herbstreit is reportedly bothered by all of the hate.“Interesting nugget by Marc Daniels on The Bridge…Herbstreit openly talks about the Twitter barrage in ESPN production meetings, says it’s bothering him,” tweeted Matt Serio.A quick look at the replies to that tweet, though, shows that UCF fans aren’t going to stop anytime soon.last_img read more

They’ve played some magnificent cricket and got to No.1 in the world, so it’s been a tough team to break into,” International Cricket Council quoted Vince as saying.”When I have played, it’s been to pop-in for a game, knowing that when the main guys are fit, I’d be out again unless I did something remarkable. All I can do is my best when I do play, and try to force my way into becoming a regular in the squad and then taking chances,” he added.Vince was part of the playing XI for the one-off ODI against Ireland and the only T20I against Pakistan.

The player hopes for making his case for the upcoming World Cup by showcasing good performances in the ongoing ODI series against Pakistan.advertisement”I got asked about aspirations at the start of the summer in regards to white-ball cricket and I said I’d do as well as I can for Hampshire. Pleased to start the season well, and as things turned out, I’m here and involved now,” Vince said.”The plan for the rest of the series is to get a game or two and, hopefully, push my case ahead of the World Cup,” he added.

Post Kabir Singh’s success, Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter to star in Ram Madhvani’s next?

first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiJune 27, 2019UPDATED: June 27, 2019 18:45 IST Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter.Shahid Kapoor is the toast of the town these days. The actor’s latest release Kabir Singh crossed the Rs 100 crore mark within a week of its release.After Kabir Singh, the actor is all set to choose his next film. According to reports in an entertainment website, the actor is considering to star in remake of Jersey, a 2019 Telugu-language sports drama. The film will be made under Nikkhil Advani’s banner and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.He is also in talks to star in an untitled project by director Ram Madhvani. Ram directed Sonam Kapoor’s 2016 film Neerja.It is reported that Shahid has already decided to star in the film. A source close to the development told the website, “It’s an adventure based action drama. He plays a biker in the film. The movie is expected to roll sometime around January next year. Shahid is definitely doing the film.”It is also reported that since the film’s story revolves around two brothers, the makers approached Ishaan, Shahid’s real-life brother, to play his brother on the big screen. The source told the website, “Ishaan Khatter has been offered the other part. When Shahid was told about this, he was extremely happy about the development. Ishaan too has liked the script and okayed it. The story is extremely hard hitting and emotional at the same time, and perfectly suits the two bhais.”Shahid and Kiara Advani, who featured opposite Shahid in Kabir Singh, are on cloud nine after the massive success of their film. In fact, the Kaminey actor took to Instagram to share a happy picture with Kiara and director Sandeep Reddy Vanga to celebrate the opening weekend collection.advertisementThough Kabir Singh is a hit, the film didn’t go down well with the critics. Giving the film 1.5 out of 5 stars, India Today reviewer Ananya Bhattacharya wrote, “Kabir Singh spends 120 minutes of its 154 in showing Kabir either drinking or drunk or snorting cocaine or needling in morphine or fighting with people or, slapping his girlfriend or screaming at her. Or making out. In the remaining 24 minutes, his repentance is done with, and we all go home with a happy ending. If you think it is okay, if you think it is justified because ‘movie hai yaar, it’s not real life’, you are part of the problem. Misogyny is not cool. Neither is Kabir Singh.”ALSO READ | Kabir Singh Movie ReviewALSO READ | Kabir Singh box office collection Day 1: Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani film gets fantastic openingALSO READ | Mira Rajput on Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh: So proud of you baby.

He then came out on the field and took a stunning one-handed catch to send back Evin Lewis.It was an all-round effort from the captain which helped Team India beat West Indies by 59 runs (via DLS method) in the 2nd ODI and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.After the match Kohli made a special appearance on Chahal TV in which he revealed the secret behind batting and fielding in tough weather conditions.”It was very challenging because it had rained earlier in the day. That is why it was even more humid today.”My mindset has always been simple. I want to contribute in any way possible for the team. Be it catches or run outs, I want to do it all.
