first_imgAnd the Argentinian followed it up here with an excellent display that will have had fans drooling.He created Heung-Min Son’s opener with a Dembele-esque mazy dribble, dancing past four Southampton players from his own half before giving it to Erik Lamela who teed up Son.And minutes later he showed the kind of vision Eriksen has provided since 2013 with an inch-perfect ball over the Saints defence which Son volleyed over.Spurs supporters have had to be patient with Lo Celso, who suffered a two-month lay-off with a hip injury early on after arriving on loan from Real Betis.But he now looks to have adapted to English football, playing not as the No10 or wide player most presumed he would be when he joined, but further back in the heart of midfield.Spurs fans belted out his name in recognition of his excellent work here – and ramped it up when he fell to the ground after copping a loose arm to the throat by Ryan Bertrand as the pair vied for a high ball.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him Tottenham will be obliged to buy Lo Celso for the set fee of £60million if they finish in the Champions League.But the way the 23-year-old is going, fans will be calling on the club to sign him up even if they do not make the top four.Lo Celso also thought he had his second FA Cup goal of the season just before the half hour – but his shot went in off an offside Son.2Spurs agree £55m transfer fee with Real Betis for Giovani Lo Celso after missing out on Philippe Coutinho SPURS sold Mousa Dembele this time last year and are about to lose Christian Eriksen.But in Giovani Lo Celso, they might just have a player who can slot in for both.2 Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso impressed against Southampton despite his side only managing a 1-1 drawThe Argentine, 23, was instrumental here against Southampton and was rewarded with songs of praise by the travelling supporters.Tottenham have lacked a central midfielder who has the ability to drive the ball forward with power and precision since Dembele was flogged to China.While Eriksen has been their source of creativity for over half a decade but is on the verge of a switch to Inter Milan.The Dane was not even in the squad on the South Coast and his plane ticket to Milan is surely booked.If ever there was a time for one of the current crop to step up to fill the void, it is now.Lo Celso has been doing just that since the turn of the year with some hugely promising performances.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow all the latest news on Tottenhamlast_img read more

first_imgHARRY KANE would not be taking a step up by leaving Tottenham for Manchester United, Harry Redknapp has warned.Reports have linked the Red Devils with a huge £200million summer transfer move for the England captain.1 Harry Kane would not be making a move up by joining Man United, says Harry RedknappThose rumours were quickly rubbished by the North London club, who claim they are not willing to sell their star man for any price.Meanwhile, former United defender and now Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville claims Kane “opened the door” himself to an exit from his boyhood team with his recent remarks.The striker made clear his intention to win trophies and said he would not stay at Spurs “just for the sake of it”.But ex-Spurs boss Redknapp believes the forward will stay with Jose Mourinho’s side as he raised doubts over the appeal of a switch to Old Trafford.Speaking on the talkSPORT Breakfast, Redknapp said: “Harry Kane is a special player, he’s the best centre forward certainly in the Premier League and of his type I don’t think there’s a better centre forward anywhere.“Okay, he’s not Messi, he’s not Ronaldo, but as a centre-forward that does what he does, there isn’t anyone better.“He would be a great fit for Man United, he’d be a great fit for any team… but Man United at the moment are not better than Tottenham.“I wouldn’t say there’s much between them, both teams are trying to get into the top four.”MAN UTD NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest United newsLATEST FOOTBALL NEWSTHE WIN CROWDFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticHowever, Redknapp believes the lure of two clubs could prove too strong for Kane.He added: “Whether Real Madrid or Barcelona came in, he might fancy a move like that one day.“But at the moment he belongs to Tottenham, and unless Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy decide to will cash in if it’s a crazy offer and rebuild the team with that money, unless Jose says, ‘I’ve got three players here we can sign and build a better team with’, then I’m sure he’ll stay at Tottenham.”Rio Ferdinand says Man Utd must seal £230m double transfer for Harry Kane and Jadon Sancholast_img read more

first_imgWhether they’re providing the final pass for their winger or bustling their way through for a four-pointer, these are the best centres in the business as voted by the NRL.com team.5. Will Chambers2016 stats: 3 tries, 1 try assist, 3 line breaks, 30 tackle breaks, 114.6 metres per gameInjury restricted Chambers to 17 appearances in 2016, missing the middle portion of the season (including possible selection in the Kangaroos and Maroons sides). While 2016 wasn’t his most prolific season, Chambers still played his role in Melbourne’s charge to the grand final and is likely to return to the representative arena in 2017.4. Jack Bird2016 stats: 6 tries, 6 try assists, 9 line breaks, 81 tackle breaks, 111.8 metres per gameAfter bursting onto the scene in the halves in his debut season, Bird shifted to the centres to accommodate the signing of Chad Townsend and James Maloney and went on to play his part in Cronulla’s maiden premiership. A contender for the No.1 jersey in pre-season, the versatile Shark also spent time at lock and made his NSW Origin debut. Formed a lethal partnership with Valentine Holmes on Cronulla’s right edge and will be one of the club’s key players in years to come.3. Blake Ferguson2016 stats: 11 tries, 8 try assists, 8 line breaks, 73 tackle breaks, 125.7 metres per gameThe Roosters’ 2016 campaign was one they’d rather forget, but Blake Ferguson had perhaps his most consistent season in first grade. He played in 22 of the Tricolours’ 24 games and all three Origin matches as well as all six Kangaroos Tests, and was named Australia’s best in the season-ending Four Nations tournament. While he spent the final few rounds of the NRL season on the wing and at fullback, Ferguson is set to return to the centres on a permanent basis in 2017.2. Jarrod Croker2016 stats: 18 tries, 7 try assists, 15 line breaks, 75 tackle breaks, 96.3 metres per gameThe Raiders skipper has been among the game’s highest points-scorers even when his side were failing to make the top eight, so it came as no surprise that he enjoyed another bumper season when the Green Machine finished in second spot after 26 rounds. He surpassed former coach David Furner as the club’s all-time leading points-scorer with a whopping 296 points in 2016, also comfortably leading the competition in this area. Has also improved his defence and at just 26, still has plenty of good years ahead of him.1. Joey Leilua2016 stats: 11 tries, 10 try assists, 14 line breaks, 130 tackle breaks, 130 metres per gameIt’s rare that two players from the same club make a top five positional list, let alone those two players occupying the top two spots. But it is indicative of the dominant nature of Canberra’s backline that Joey Leilua pipped his skipper as the best centre in the game according to our writers. Leilua finished fourth in the competition for tackle breaks and second for offloads, while his 11 tries and 10 try assists were also highlights. Along with right-edge partner Jordan Rapana, was perhaps the most destructive attacking force in the NRL in 2016 with further representative honours likely to follow next season.last_img read more

first_imgIt should be noted that these four strikers are all of the most prominent in the scoring side wearing the shirt of the Castellon team, Rossi and Forlán being the most prolific strikers in history; while Victor and Craioveanu are among the best.To these strikers who scored in their debut two special cases are added, since they are two youth players who scored on their first day, such as Jonathan Pereira and Fernando Niño. A special club in which they are not forward like: Gerard Moreno, Sonny Anderson, Bakambu, Joseba Llorente, Nihat, Roberto Soldado, Tomasson or Ekambi among others.And what if they would be Villarreal players who also scored in their premiere, but the team being in the Second Division, which would be players like: Jeremy Perbet, Walter Pandiani and Fernando Cavenaghi.

first_imgSince he took over the club and after a good preseason, Ángel López has played only four official matches, all this after the club decided to sell to practically half a team and sign up to fifteen new players.The first one was that of the first Ecuadorian Super Cup in history, in which he had no luck and ended up falling in the penalty shootout after drawing against Liga de Quito. Two weeks later the championship began and resolved the first match against the Aucas with victory at home in a difficult field (1-2). On the following day they had an important duel and Dolphin lost to him Barcelona for a single goal (1-2), this being a difficult game in which any result could have been given, that is, that was contemplated from the beginning that they could not win the match. Even so, the team was winning 1-0 and was traced after the expulsion of two players, so winning and being traced to keep nine does not seem reprehensible. But defeat to University Technician (0-2) on the third day it was enough for the president of Delfin, José Delgado, who had no patience and decided to stop counting on the Spanish coach although he has not had time to finish establishing his style and working methods. All this a few hours after starting his career in the Copa Libertadores against Olimpia (in their group they were also Defense and Justice Y Saints). Thanks guys! I am left with your unconditional support, respect and appreciation for the work done. On 3 dates it is not possible to evaluate or prove anything … We were on the right track we all knew. pic.twitter.com/o0mibjVnWj– Ángel LÓPEZ (@alopezcoach) March 4, 2020Ángel López, despite the way in which everything has ended, has decided to thank the support of a staff that until the last moment was on his side and that even tried to stop his march as you may have known ACE, although he regrets that they have not given him room to maneuver to demonstrate his qualities: “Thank you guys! I am left with your unconditional support, respect and appreciation for the work done. On three dates it is not possible to evaluate or prove anything … We were on the right track we all knew.”It seems a hasty decision by the president of Delfin after changing half of the squad, the coaching staff and demanding the same results as last year (the best in its history) in such a short time, when direct rivals such as Emelec They still have two points less than them. Delfín has dispensed with his coach, Ángel López, after just four games at the head of the team. The cetacean group has decided to hire the technician Carlos Ischia instead, whose last jobs have been in The strongest (Bolivia), Aucas (Ecuador) and Barcelona (Ecuador). Nevertheless, It is striking that the champion of Ecuador has decided to dispense so quickly with a coach for whom they had bet heavily, hiring even a large part of his coaching staff after seeing the great work he had done at the head of the selection of Equatorial Guinea: “I did not want to leave”, Madrid says to this newspaper.last_img read more
