Alvarez told the club’s official website: “David is, of course, the one who plays more and is an important player for the club, but the three of them [goalkeepers] are doing very well.”With David, we are always thinking about how he can get better and better, and better.

first_imgFraser: Bournemouth must overcome Southampton mental blockby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveRyan Fraser says Bournemouth must get over their mental hurdle to beat local rivals Southampton away from home.Cherries have beaten their south coast neighbours seven times from 29 meetings, but all of which were at the Vitality Stadium.Discussing the club’s record at St Mary’s, Fraser told the Daily Echo: “It’s disappointing. The gaffer mentioned it, he was already on to the next game in the changing room (after Everton).”Now we’ve got the win under our belt at home, he says we’ve never really had a good record away and it’s time for us to set down a marker that we can go there and turn them over.”We bring big fans, large numbers and we always seem to go away disappointed. Even at home I think I remember one game that we won, but we’ve never really dominated them.”I think we should try and impose ourselves and try and mentally get over that hurdle of going there and trying to win.”It’s one that if we play our best, I can see us winning.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

After our game they improved little by little.They had some chances to score and at the end I think the draw is a deserved result for both teams.” last_img read more

first_imgCoach Cal yelling from the Kentucky sideline.LEXINGTON, KY – FEBRUARY 28: John Calipari the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats gives instructions to his team against the Ole Miss Rebels during the game at Rupp Arena on February 28, 2018 in Lexington, Kentucky. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)This past Saturday night, immediately following Kentucky’s last-second victory over Notre Dame, it was suggested by TBS sideline reporter Lewis Johnson, in a live interview with UK head coach John Calipari, that Notre Dame was the “toughest test” that the Wildcats had faced all season. Coach Cal emphatically disagreed, leading many to criticize him for failing to give the Irish credit. The clip went viral as a result.Monday, Calipari addressed the situation on the Final Four teleconference. He claims that he didn’t want to lie, given Kentucky’s difficult tests against Ole Miss and Texas A&M – both of which went to overtime. Brett Dawson of Rivals and Kami Mattioli of Sporting News grabbed the quote.Here’s the thing about being at a game: I had no idea there was any social-media flap about Calipari not saying ND was UK’s toughest game.— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonRivals) March 30, 2015Apparently there was, though, as Calipari was asked about it on today’s Final Four teleconference.— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonRivals) March 30, 2015Calipari said he “could have lied” and said Notre Dame was toughest test, but points out UK was lucky to get to OT vs. Ole Miss and A&M.— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonRivals) March 30, 2015Calipari on his postgame comments: “To say that that was by far the toughest game, I could’ve lied and said oh yeah, but it wasn’t”— Kami Mattioli (@kmattio) March 30, 2015While Calipari’s interview may have rubbed many people the wrong way, he did make sure to praise Notre Dame when accepting the Midwest Region trophy afterwards.

first_imgSantiago Solari accepted Real Madrid were “weak” in their loss to Leganes, despite progressing to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.Madrid’s 3-0 first-leg win meant Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat at Butarque was not enough to send them out of the tournament at the expense of Leganes for the second year in a row.Solari gave Isco a start in a rejigged team that saw Marcelo feature on the wing in the first half, with Madrid struggling to create chances without a focal point in attack.

And Solari accepted his side, who have lost two of their last four matches, were not good enough against Leganes, who won the second leg thanks to a first-half Martin Braithwaite goal.”A weak performance, above all the first half,” he told a news conference.”They all needed to get playing time, they got it. We got through the tie, but the performance was weak.”Sometimes we try things and if they do not work, we try to improve them.”We have lacked depth. We paid not having a specific reference in attack.”Madrid were without Karim Benzema, the striker having fractured his finger in their 2-1 win at Real Betis in the league last time out.But Solari is optimistic that the former France international will be able to play Madrid’s next game, against Sevilla on Saturday.”It is a broken little finger,” he said of the striker. “We hope to have him at the weekend, and next Wednesday, and the next weekend.”Isco lasted 68 minutes on a rare start under Solari, with the playmaker withdrawn for Cristo Gonzalez.The Spain midfielder completed 93 per cent of his passes but wasted Madrid’s best chance to score with a tame shot.Solari has regularly been questioned about his apparent lack of faith in Isco but he once again dismissed talk of a rift with the playmaker.”There is no problem, not at all,” Solari said of Isco.last_img read more

first_imgDid MS Dhoni’s slow half-century cost India the Sydney ODI vs Australia? India vs Australia: Brief Scores – Australia (288/5) beat India (254/9) by 34 runs: MS Dhoni was unlucky as the ball that trapped him in front had pitched outside the line of the leg-stump but the wicketkeeper-batsman consumed too many deliveries during a 137-run stand with centurion Rohit Sharma.advertisement Akshay Ramesh SydneyJanuary 12, 2019UPDATED: January 12, 2019 19:03 IST India vs Australia, 1st ODI: MS Dhoni was struggling to put bat to ball during the early stages of his 137-run stand with centurion Rohit Sharma on Saturday (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSDhoni took 96 balls to score 51 before being dismissed at a crucial juncture in India’s chase of 289Dhoni stitched a 137-run stand with centurion Rohit Sharma but was struggling to put bat to ball for the most part of his knockIndia lost the first ODI by 34 runs despite Virat Kohli conceding that Australia 288 was below-par on the SCG wicketIndia vs Australia: Brief Scores – Australia (288/5) beat India (254/9) by 34 runs. Virat Kohli said MS Dhoni ‘s dismissal was the turning point in India’s 34-run loss to Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. Chasing 289, India managed only 254 for 9. (Full Scorecard)MS Dhoni may have managed to win the hearts of some of his hardcore fans by bringing up his first ODI century since December 2017. The former India captain had a memorable outing, personally at the Sydney Cricket Ground as he became the fifth batsman from the country to score 10,000 ODI runs for India during the first ODI between India and Australia on Saturday.However, the pace at which he got the 51, it is safe to say, was one the primary reasons, India weren’t able to cross the finish line at the SCG.Yes, India were jolted early in the chase of 289 as young Jhye Richardson removed Virat Kohli (3) and Ambati Rayudu (0) after Jason Behrendorff handed Shikhar Dhawan his first golden duck in ODIs but one cannot deny the fact Dhoni was struggling to put bat to ball and consumed a lot of deliveries towards the start of his innings.Dhoni didn’t have any match practice since November 1, 2018, as he was not part of the T20I series against the West Indies at home and the T20I series against Australia at the beginning of the ongoing tour. Dhoni had also opted to skip Ranji Trophy duties despite some of the senior cricketers, including Sunil Gavaskar questioning senior players’ absence from the premier domestic tournament.advertisementThe rustiness was visible as the wicketkeeper-batsman found it difficult to pick gaps in the vast SCG field, let alone finding the boundaries.Virat Kohli, speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, conceded that that 300-plus was par on the SCG wicket and pointed out that India bowlers had done their jobs to limit Australia to 288 for 5.Dhoni had joined Rohit Sharma when India were reeling at 4 for 3 inside the first four overs. The 37-year-old had the license to start slow but taking 96 balls to score 51 wasn’t going to help the team as the asking rate was always going to be a problem on what was a slow SCG wicket.Yes, the SCG wicket was slowing up but Dhoni’s inability to rotate the strike not just piled up the pressure on Rohit Sharma but also made life difficult for the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja, who had very little time to get used to the conditions.There was only an illusion of an opportunity in this game. The 4th wicket partnership had consumed too many deliveries.Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 12, 2019Why u r worried so much from Dhoni’s fans,,say it loud & clear,,,Rohit played till the end,,he made use of all those deliveries,,Dhoni wasted 96 balls,,,????Don’t you think his small backlift play is hampering his performance,,We all love Dhoni,It’s time to take tough decisionHarshit Kumar (@Er_kumarharshit) January 12, 2019Dhoni consumed too many deliveries and at the end even Rohit Sharma was no able to catch up with the required run rate though he was better than run a ball….Navneet Trivedi (@NavneetTrived20) January 12, 2019Dhoni in the same shoes that the famous boys were when he took over. He should RETIRE !!No ride, No story !! (@Kevin16117) January 12, 2019Kindly give Mahi a graceful exit. Someone needs to tell him that he is just not timing the ball and is struggling. Karthik has to be ur wicket keeper if he is in the team. Get likes of kedhar Jadhav or Manish Pandey in the place of Dhoni. U can’t have MSD in the team jst for DRS!Raj Nair (@rajnairview) January 12, 2019The No. Of dot balls Dhoni consumed in his innings is really question mark surely he is struggling with rotating strike he is not in great form, the selector need to take some bold decision before world cup and Rishabh pant or DK will be alternate wicket keeper batsmanGopi Mariappan (@gopi_mariappan) January 12, 2019Dhoni has been a shadow of his former self, especially in the 50-over format for quite some time now.More than the lack of big scores, the rate at which Dhoni has been scoring in ODIs has been a huge cause of concern for India. Dhoni’s strike-rate from 20 matches in 2018 was a paltry 71.42, as opposed to his career strike-rate of 87.60.In fact, Dhoni was even booed by a few Indian fans at the Lord’s during India’s tour of England in 2018. The crowd was frustrated with Dhoni’s slow approach to a steep chase of 323 in the second ODI against the then hosts.advertisementIndia were already behind the asking rate when Dhoni walked in to bat at the fall of Virat Kohli’s wicket. His approach thereafter was baffling: Dhoni scored 37 off 59 balls and hit only two boundaries.Dhoni had also scored the second slowest half-century in Indian cricket history when he scored 58 off 108 balls in India’s 11-run defeat against the West Indies during the Asian giants’ tour of the Caribbean in 2017.

first_img Next Reuters RomeMay 15, 2019UPDATED: May 15, 2019 08:56 IST World No. 5 Alexander Zverev has been struggling for consistency in the ongoing clay-court season (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSWorld no. 5 Alexander Zverev was stunned in straight sets by Matteo BerrettiniZverev has not got past the quarter-finals at any tournament since reaching the Acapulco final in early MarchKyrgios displayed his best and worst as he combined spectacular shots with an outburst of poor behaviourWorld number five Alexander Zverev continued his poor recent form as he crashed out of the Italian Open in the second round while Serena Williams had to pull out of the women’s draw with a recurring knee injury on Tuesday.Serena had beaten Swede Rebecca Peterson in straight sets on Monday and was due to face sister Venus but the injury means her participation at the May 26-June 9 French Open is in doubt.Zverev, who has not got past the quarter-finals at any tournament since reaching the Acapulco final in early March, did little to suggest he could be a contender at Roland Garros after a 7-5 7-5 defeat by home favourite Matteo Berrettini.Roared on by a partisan home crowd at the Foro Italico, Berrettini took the opening three games before the German, 2017 champion and last year’s runner-up, regained his composure.Berrettini then saved five break points to take a 6-5 lead before the rattled Zverev, who beat the Italian in the same round last year, threw away the opening set with two unforced errors and a double fault.They traded breaks early in the second before Zverev, who saved a match point in the 10th game, committed another flurry of errors, capped by a forehand into the net that handed Berrettini a memorable win.”The environment was great, the match that I played was horrendous,” said the 22-year-old Zverev.Second set meltdown for Nick KyrgiosIn first-round action, David Goffin produced two blistering sets to fight back and beat Stanislav Wawrinka 4-6 6-0 6-2 while Nick Kyrgios treated the crowd to an array of his antics in a 6-3 3-6 6-3 victory over Russian Daniil Medvedev.advertisementThe flamboyant and unpredictable Kyrgios again displayed his best and worst as he combined spectacular shots with an outburst of poor behaviour.The Australian won the opening point of the match with what is fast becoming a trademark underarm serve and breezed through the first set before cheers from the crowd turned to jeers amid a second-set meltdown.Having dropped serve to hand Medvedev a 5-3 lead, Kyrgios blasted a ball over the stands, then bent over and turned his backside to Medvedev and finally exchanged words with the umpire before the Russian held to force a third set.As if nothing had happened, Kyrgios got back to business as he hammered in aces and winners, having also capped some good forays to the net with confident volleys to book a second-round clash with Norwegian Casper Ruud.Goffin dropped the opening set before he blew Wawrinka away in the next two, the decisive moment coming in the second game of the third when the Belgian saved a double break point at 1-0 down.He won the next five games and, although the Swiss briefly delayed the inevitable, Goffin was able to celebrate after his frustrated opponent blazed a forehand into the crowd.Also Read | Serena Williams out of Italian Open with knee injury ahead of round 2 tie vs VenusAlso Read | Nicole Gibbs pulls out of French Open after cancer diagnosisFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

(AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSerena Williams beat Kurumi Nara of Japan 6-3, 6-2 to breeze into 3rd round of French OpenWorld No. 1 Novak Djokovic defeated Henri Laaksonen 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 in the 2nd round at Roland GarrosRafael Nadal and Roger Federer have also advanced to 3rd round of the French OpenNovak Djokovic wasted little time beating Henri Laaksonen 6-1 6-4 6-3 on Thursday to breeze into the third round of the French Open and stay on course to hold all four Grand Slam titles.The 32-year-old Serbian top seed, bidding to win his second French Open, was at his clinical best in the opening set against the Swiss lucky loser, dropping only three points on serve.There was a brief loss of focus when Djokovic was broken to love midway though the second set but he was quickly back in the groove to move two sets ahead.Laaksonen, ranked 104th in the world, had only reached the second round once in a Grand Slam, and there was no way back as Djokovic broke twice in the third to wrap up victory.As with holder Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, Djokovic has enjoyed a friendly first-week draw and he will face Italian qualifier Salvatore Caruso for a place in the fourth round.Serena Williams breezed into the third round of the French Open on Thursday with a routine 6-3 6-2 win against Japanese Kurumi Nara, wasting no energy in her quest for a record-equalling Grand Slam singles title.The 10th seed, chasing a first major since the 2017 Australian Open, survived a first-set fright in her opening match, but there was no hiccup this time.She will take on fellow American Sofia Kenin in the next round, with world number one Naomi Osaka a potential opponent in the quarter-finals.As often with Williams, both the clothes and the arm did the talking on Court Philippe Chatrier.She stepped into the stadium wearing her Virgil Abloh-designed dress printed with the words “Reine, Mere, Championne, Deesse” (Queen, Mother, Champion, Goddess).advertisementOn court, the 37-year-old was given a decent workout by world number 238 Nara, who was playing her only second match in the main draw of a tour-level tournament this year.Nara stood her ground in the first seven games but derailed in the eighth as Williams broke for 5-3 with a booming forehand winner down the line.The Japanese cracked earlier in the second set, dropping serve in the third game, and never recovered as Williams snatched her 801st victory on the tour.Also Read | French Open: Osaka survives early exit, Thiem battles through to 3rd roundAlso Read | French Open 2019: Federer eases into 3rd round, Cilic crashes outAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_img Indo-Asian News Service Las VegasJune 5, 2019UPDATED: June 5, 2019 13:35 IST Rape case against Christiano Ronaldo dropped. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSThe US woman had filed a lawsuit alleging Ronaldo of sexual harassment and rapeMayorga had opened up publicly after 10 years stating Ronaldo’s ‘fixers’ offered her $375,000 as pay-offRonaldo had publicly denied the allegations and never filed a response to the lawsuitIn a dramatic turn of events, a rape case filed against Juventus star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been dropped, a media report said.In September 2018, Katheryn Mayorga had filed a lawsuit alleging Ronaldo of sexual harassment and rape in a penthouse in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The incident went back to June 2009 when he had recently moved to Spanish giants Real Madrid. Ronaldo was in the US for a pre-season tour.According to the complaint, Ronaldo, then 24, was on vacation in Las Vegas and met her in the Rain nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort before inviting her to a party in his suite.It was there that Ronaldo forced himself on Mayorga while she begged him to stop, the complaint alleged. It added that “when Cristiano Ronaldo completed the sexual assault of the plaintiff, he allowed her to leave the bedroom stating he was sorry, he was usually a gentleman”, Efe news had reported.After 10 years of silence, Mayorga had opened up publicly regarding the matter, stating Ronaldo’s ‘fixers’ offered her $375,000 as pay-off – but allegations were made as early as 2017 by German outlet Der Spiegel.However, now according to a report in Bloomberg, a notice of voluntary dismissal was filed last month in Nevada state court in Las Vegas. The report also states that the filing didn’t say whether the accuser had reached a settlement with Ronaldo.Following the lawsuit last year, Las Vegas police had reopened the investigation into the rape allegations.The Portuguese star had publicly denied the allegations and never filed a response to the lawsuit.advertisementAlso Read | Reyes’ car was above 220kmph before crash: PoliceAlso Read | Brazil coach Tite reserves judgment on Neymar rape accusationAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_img Reuters ManchesterAugust 12, 2019UPDATED: August 12, 2019 22:10 IST Manchester United defeated Chelsea 4-0 in their Premier League encounter on Sunday. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSLiverpool started the ball rolling with a convincing 4-1 win at homeOle Gunnar Solskjaer’s United registered 4-0 win over ChelseaThe debut of VAR video reviews had an impact on several gamesFive talking points from the Premier League weekend:NO TIME FOR EASING INAfter last season’s gripping duel for the title between Manchester City and Liverpool, most observers expected this campaign to be a similar tight race with little to choose between Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions and Juergen Klopp’s European champions.But straight away?Liverpool started the ball rolling with a convincing 4-1 win at home to promoted Norwich and City responded a day later with an even more emphatic 5-0 victory at West Ham United.There was an intensity and readiness about both teams which suggests Guardiola and Klopp, along with their squads, know there is no room for error and no opportunity to gradually ease their team into the season. After last year, when City won by a solitary point – they know a slip-up, even in the opening weeks, could prove fatal.Established wisdom suggests that for mid-to-lower ranked teams it is better to play the front-runners early in the season count that as another orthodoxy that these two remarkable teams have blown away.UNITED – STRONG SIGNS OF PROGRESSOle Gunnar Solskjaer was wise to note that despite the emphatic scoreline in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Chelsea, his rebuilding job at Manchester United remains a work in progress.But while the performance at Old Trafford was by no means as impressive as the result, there were a few key indicators that he is on the right track.New acquisitions Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka made strong debuts and the back four looks a much more formidable unit than last season.advertisementThe tempo of United’s play was higher than in many of the laboured performances of last year and the way United ran away with the game in the second half suggested their fitness levels, something Solskjaer and his staff have focused heavily upon, are at a much healthier level than a year ago.Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will need more time to adjust to their more central roles in attack, after the sale of Romelu Lukaku, but both were on target and Solksjaer was particularly pleased to see Martial score a poachers’ goal from close-range centrally.The average age of the team was the lowest of any side in the opening weekend and it was noticeable that the chosen central defender on the bench was 21-year-old Axel Tuanzebe, who spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, and not one of the more experienced Phil Jones, Chris Smalling or Marcos Rojo.United are unlikely to worry City or Liverpool this term but they are certainly faster, stronger, younger and hungrier.CHELSEA TO PAY FOR DEFENSIVE DEPARTURES?Chelsea’s defending was awful at times at Old Trafford with Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen looking far from solid in the centre of defence.Frank Lampard will be hoping Antonio Rudiger is back to fitness quickly because he only has 21-year-old Fikayo Tomori as back-up.But with such limited options and the club barred from the transfer market it does raise the question as to why Chelsea were so keen to sell experienced central defenders David Luiz and Gary Cahill.PROVISIONAL GOALS AND PROVISIONAL CELEBRATIONSThe debut of VAR video reviews in the Premier League inevitably had an impact on several games and thankfully all the decisions turned out to be without controversy.But the way in which goals are checked before being confirmed creates a strange situation where players — and fans — have to hold their celebrations in check until the men in front of the screens have given the thumbs-up.It is a loss of spontaneity and natural rhythm in the game which some will find hard to accept. Is that simply the price that has to be paid for greater accuracy and consistency in decision-making?BARNES A DANCEFLOOR HIT?Burnley striker Ashley Barnes struck twice in the Clarets’ 3-0 win over Southampton, as the 29-year-old continues to be a classic late developer who has worked his way up from non-league football.Such is his popularity with the Burnley support that he is now the subject of an eponymous grime track by local born rapper Bacchus which celebrates the forward’s rough edges as much as his goalscoring talent.Also Read | Furious fans call for Neymar’s departure as PSG beat Nimes 3-0Also Read | There’s always that question mark: Paul Pogba on his future at Manchester UnitedAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
