Maran: ‘When you’ve got Nainggolan…’

Posted in tnljfllg on November 30th, 2019

first_imgRolando Maran concedes “it’s an advantage to have a player like” Radja Nainggolan, after Cagliari beat SPAL 2-0 with his stunner. The Sardinians started badly with two straight defeats, but are now unbeaten in six and surged past Roma into fifth place. “The first two rounds were difficult, but we worked hard and I tip my hat to all the lads who put our training into practice,” the Coach told DAZN. “We must continue like this, trying to improve, but also maintaining a balance between defence and attack. We need to stay in the game to the last minute, the last centimetre, and these lads have it in their DNA.” The deadlock was broken by a spectacular Nainggolan chest and volley into the far top corner. “It’s an advantage to have a player like this in the squad, as he can do that. He has extraordinary technique and you feel his influence throughout the match.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Borussia Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose freely admits it wasn’t a penalty, but claims Roma’s opening goal should’ve been disallowed. Nicolò Zaniolo nodded in a corner and it was all set to end 1-0 before Scottish referee Willie Collum awarded a penalty in stoppages for Chris Smalling handball, even though it hit him in the face. “There was no handball, evidently, but that’s how these things go,” confessed Rose in his press conference after the 1-1 draw. “I have to say, though, that there was an offside position on Zaniolo’s corner.” If the Europa League group phase had VAR, then that penalty would never have been awarded. “I did not come here to discuss individual incidents. I wouldn’t have given that penalty, I understand the Roma fans are angry, but I prefer to put this incident to one side.” Gladbach are joint Bundesliga leaders, but have just two points from three Europa League games. “I don’t think there’s a difference in our approaches between the two competitions. We played well in the first 30 minutes today, especially.”last_img read more

Tite: ‘Paqueta will grow at Milan’

Posted in hedadxww on November 29th, 2019

first_imgBrazil CT Tite has defended his decision to give Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta the No 10 shirt after criticism from Rivaldo. Paqueta was Brazil’s No 10 during their 1-0 defeat to Argentina on Friday night, prompting his club-and-country predecessor to hit out at Tite for “disrespecting” the jersey. However, the coach has now put his faith in the 22-year-old, backing him to eventually shine for Milan.  “We need to be patient with Paqueta,” he was quoted as saying by Corriere della Sera. “He lost a bit of confidence after giving away the ball with his two first touches. “He has talent, so we need to keep calm. Lucas is a great player and he’ll show it on the pitch, increasing his performance levels at Milan.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

US Open: Sania crashes out in Round 2

Posted in iphgegfl on November 28th, 2019

first_imgSania Mirza crashed out in the second round of the women’s singles event of the US Open after suffering a staright set defeat at the hands of Anastasia Pavlyuchenkovaof Russia here today.Apart from Sania, curtains also fell on defending champions and third seeds Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy’s campaign while Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul Haq Qureshi entered the men’s doubles second round yesterday.Sania was no match for Pavlyuchenkova as the 20th seed Russian blew away her Indian opponent 6-2 6-4 in an hour and 21 minutes.In the men’s doubles event, Paes and Dlouhy were the first of the two pairs to take the court and were in for disappointment as the Czech-Slovakian combination of Martin Damm and Filip Polasek rallied to beat them 6-7 (7) 6-3 6-4.Paes has been a two-time champion (2006 and 2009) and three-time runners-up at the Grand Slam event with different partners. Interestingly, the Indian veteran’s 2006 title triumph at the Flushing Meadows came with Damm.However, Bopanna and Qureshi ensured that the Indians had something to cheer about when the 16th seeded duo defeated Americans Brian Battistone and Ryler DeHeart 6-3 7-6 (7).Bopanna and Qureshi will now play against the winners of the match between the unseeded teams of Americans Sekou Bangoura and Nathan Pasha and Michael Kohlmann (Germany) and Jarkko Nieminen (Finland).last_img read more

Fans ignore India-WI Test series; after Kotla, stands at Eden go empty

Posted in puxsprkw on November 28th, 2019

first_imgTeam India has been on the verge of sealing a 2-0 Test series victory at the Eden Gardens, but unfortunately the poor turnout of fans to watch the action has certainly robbed the contest of its sheen and vigour.With just a little over 25,000 fans turning up at the stadium on the first three days, the appalling turnout at the Mecca of Indian cricket has shocked the cricket community. Is it merely a case of cricket overkill or are fans staying away for their increasing lack of interest in Test cricket?The empty stands at the Eden Gardens in the ongoing Kolkata Test is a worrying sign, especially since the fans had thronged the venue during the last two Tests held here against South Africa and Pakistan.After his superb century at the Eden Gardens, V.V.S. Laxman said on Tuesday: “It is a great ground with a lot of history and probably the spectators, even though there were not many in the two days in this Test match.”Laxman spelt out his biggest fear at his favourite ground. The sight of empty stands in the ongoing Test has truly shocked the cricket world.Despite the batsmen striking it big and three centuries from Indian stars, the turnout at the Eden Gardens has been appalling. The prince of Kolkata — Sourav Ganguly — was also dismayed at the city of joy’s poor response to the ongoing Test.One, Anand Agarwal blamed it on high ticket prices for the poor turnout.advertisement”Actually the price of ticket is very high and lots of cricket is going on so the crowd got exhausted. One more reason for less crowd is weekdays, as most of them are in office,” Agarwal reasoned.With no day of play falling on the weekend in the Kolkata Test, the CAB blamed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for its timing of the contest.Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Biswaroop Dey said, “Everyday is a weekday… as people go to office. As the Test starts from Monday and ends on Friday so this is one of the reasons and another reason could be lots of cricket going on like Sri Lanka and Pakistan, South Africa and Australia.”While the overkill of cricket could be an added factor, the onus is indeed on the BCCI to safeguard the future of Test cricket.After the poor turnouts in Delhi and Kolkata, the lack of interest in Tests can be ascertained by the response Mumbai receives for the upcoming series finale.However, the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has been going all out to ensure the crowds flock to the ground despite the venue hosting its first Test in six years and the impending hundredth ton from Sachin Tendulkar.last_img read more

Sharapova’s short hair sparks Internet frenzy

Posted in iphgegfl on November 28th, 2019

first_imgA short haircut by Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova provoked a backlash among fans after she posted pictures of the new style on her official Facebook page.However, much to the relief of her fans, it turned out to be just a wig!Reacting to the comments on her haircut pics, she posted on her Facebooksite: “Wow, when I posted those photos with the short hair I had no idea everyone would all go bananza….( my dear friends, I never actuallysaid I cut my hair!) so for the sake of my email inbox and it’sstressful 24 hours, I would like to show you the below pictures…myhair is still long…and blonde…and well it’s pretty much the same! We did a shoot a few days ago and I sported all types of hairstyles…long and yes short (a wig!!!).” The three-time Grand Slam winner has remained a blonde, in the pictures she posted, most of her earlier long hair was gone, and the new haircut finished just below her ears.”So what do you guys think?? I kind of love it!” she wrote on Facebook.Some fans were less than complimentary about the new look.”I am in shock! It’s too short!” Singaporean fan Keith Chern commented on Sharapova’s Facebook page.”You’ve become completely different, also interesting, but I liked you better with the long hair!” said Russian fan Kseniya Maksimenko.”It’s perfect for you,” wrote Keita Sugihara from Japan.Sharapova’s new hairstyle even attracted some offers of marriage, but she is engaged to Slovenian basketball player Sasha Vujacic.In 2012, Sharapova reached the final of the Australian Open, losing to Belarusian player Viktoria Azarenka 6-3, 6-0, and lost in the finals of the Indian Wells and Miami tournaments. She is ranked No. 2 in the world and is eligible to play for Russia at the Olympic Games in London.advertisementlast_img read more
