Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now “I do what I love and that’s the biggest thing,” the 50-year-old told former Red Robbie Fowler in an interview for the Mirror.”When I passed my A-levels, the head of the school said in front of all of the other students: ‘I hope you do something in football otherwise I’m not optimistic for you!'”It was really hard in that moment, I can tell you. But I sit here today and I can train a club like Liverpool – it still feels like a f*cking sensation! It’s unbelievable!”Fowler went on to touch on Klopp’s clear devotion to the club, with it having emerged that he had originally planned to a break after his seven-year spell at Signal Iduna Park.When the call from Anfield came in, however, there was only one answer he could give.”I felt something special immediately when Mike Gordon called me,” he said.Klopp's sensation“I was not ready, I thought it made sense that I had one year off. But I really knew, ok, that is one club that I can not say no to.”The final represents Klopp’s second time making it to the final of Europe’s top club competition, with the manager having lost to Bayern Munich during his time at Dortmund in 2013.Indeed, Klopp will hope to break something of a cup final hoodoo, having only emerged victorious in one of six in his managerial career, lifting the DFB Pokal in 2012 with BVB.Kick-off for the showpiece event in Kiev is at 7:45pm UK time (2:45pm US ET).

Commentary Its up to Fickell to have Miller prepared

As freshman quarterback Braxton Miller was given his first opportunity to take the reins of the Ohio State offense on Saturday, this much was clear: what looked to be a disappointing 2011 season a week ago had suddenly transformed into one full of optimism, not just for now, but for the next four years in Columbus. But even as Miller moved the ball with the most consistency the Buckeyes had seen since playing woeful Akron in the first week of the season, his success was the cause of more frustration for Buckeye fans. First, let’s examine the good that came along with Miller’s starting debut on Saturday. Thanks in part to a Colorado special teams unit that would have made former OSU coach Jim Tressel cringe, Miller led the Buckeyes to 37 points, the most the offense has scored since OSU’s win against Akron. He ran the ball well as he accumulated 83 yards rushing the ball and turned multiple would-be losses into gains with his feet. After last week’s debacle against Miami, the Buckeyes needed to find a new identity to tell poll voters that this wasn’t the same OSU team that couldn’t score a touchdown or even move the ball with any sort of consistency a week ago in South Beach. With Miller playing well as he took over as the undisputed starting quarterback for the Buckeyes, they accomplished just that. But with Miller playing as well as he did on Saturday, I’m sure that many OSU fans found themselves asking why Miller wasn’t named the starter earlier in the season. Despite turning the ball over twice against Miami, Miller moved the ball more consistently as the team’s quarterback than Joe Bauserman did, and one can’t help but think that giving Miller more playing time — especially versus Toledo, against which he didn’t take any snaps — would have better prepared him for the Hurricanes and the remainder of the 2011 season. The best way to get past that frustration is to tell yourself that it’s time to look forward and not backward. But even doing that raises more questions about the OSU coaching staff’s use of Miller. Throughout much of the game against Colorado, offensive coordinator Jim Bollman refused to take the training wheels off of Miller as the Buckeyes centered their offense around running the ball. On two separate occasions, OSU elected to run draw plays when facing third-and-long situations. Not surprisingly, both attempts were unsuccessful. Admittedly, I’ve never taken a meaningful snap at quarterback at any level, but even playing Madden on my PlayStation 3 has taught me that in order to maintain a successful passing game, it’s best for a quarterback to develop a rhythm, which would require attempting more than the 13 total passes that Miller attempted on his 11 offensive drives on Saturday. OSU’s negligence to its passing game resulted in a 5-for-13 throwing the ball performance for Miller, who wasn’t helped by drops from T.Y. Williams and Jaamal Berry and a questionably ruled incomplete pass to his new favorite target, Devin Smith. It was still good enough to beat Colorado, but it won’t be good enough to beat the Buckeyes’ next two opponents, Big Ten title contenders Michigan State and Nebraska. Both of those teams will bring defensive-minded coaches in Mark Dantonio and Bo Pelini who carry ties to OSU and will be making their best cases to take over for OSU coach Luke Fickell at the end of the season. And if Miller proves to be ill-prepared for the challenges brought by the Spartans and the Cornhuskers in the next two weeks, then it will be Fickell, more than anyone, who helped those coaches’ causes. read more

Bierhoff Sanes World Cup omission was good for him

first_imgGermany team manager Oliver Bierhoff suggests that Leroy Sane benefitted from being left out of the nation’s World Cup squadManager Joachim Low made the controversial decision to omit Sane from his final 23-man squad for Germany’s doomed campaign at Russia.This was despite Sane’s standout campaign at Manchester City last season, which saw him win the PFA Young Player of the Year award after helping the club claim a domestic double in breathtaking fashion.However, Bierhoff reckons the World Cup snub may have done Sane good in the end for his development.“The issues with Leroy have been sorted out positively. You see how Leroy is playing. Perhaps it was also a good sign for him,” Bierhoff told The Sun.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Guardiola makes Sarri defence after heavy loss

first_imgFollowing Chelsea’s heaviest defeat in any competition since 1991, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has pleaded for more time for his Chelsea counterpart Maurizio SarriGuardiola’s men took the Blues to the cleaners with a 6-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Sarri’s worst league defeat as a professional manager.However, the former Barca manager sympathised with Sarri citing his own career struggles when he first joined the League and the Italian’s exploits as Napoli’s boss.When asked if he felt pity for Sarri, Guardiola told Sky: “Yes of course. I know exactly what he wants to do. I think this kind of person – it always helps to make our (Premier League) football better.“They beat us at Stamford Bridge – and against Napoli last season – they were tight games. During moments of those games, they were better than us.“People don’t understand how difficult it is. I said many times, my first year was difficult too. Some moments we played good but not consistently.“People expect ‘Okay, manager arrives, he buys players and immediately come [results]’ – it needs time. It depends on the belief from the owners, the people who are in charge; they really need to believe in that.“The main reason I decided to come to Manchester City is because my bosses, the chairman specifically, I didn’t have to convince him. He knows me.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSarri: “Cristiano Ronaldo is the strongest player in the world” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri has no doubts that Cristiano Ronaldo is the main man at Juventus, and plans to the star give more freedom to exploit his talents to their fullest extent.“When it’s not going good, we try to find a solution. He doesn’t think I’m good when I win and bad when I lose. That is the reason why I am enjoying this period at this club.”Emotional Sarri headed straight down the tunnel after the 6-0 drubbing, appearing to ignore Guardiola’s outstretched handshake.“I spoke with (Chelsea assistant) Gianfranco Zola,” Guardiola added.“Maurizio Sarri didn’t see me. I have a good relationship with him so it is no problem at all.”Maurizio Sarri: I’m ‘always at risk’ of being sacked by Chelsea https://t.co/ho1MzvX9q9 #MCICHE #MCFC #CFC pic.twitter.com/8uVZeSqc5Q— Guardian sport (@guardian_sport) February 10, 2019last_img read more

Folk Music Promoter And Patron Izzy Young Has Died

first_imgIn addition to Dylan, Mitchell and Peter, Paul and Mary, other Folklore Center alumni assisted by Young were Tim Buckley, the Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian and an up-and-coming young poet named Patti Smith. In 1973, Young closed the Center, moved to Stockholm, Sweden, and opened the Folkore Centrum mingling America’s folk heritage with Sweden’s own deep history of folk music. He operated the store and venue in several locations, hosting daily concerts until Nov. 2018 when the Centrum was closed due to his declining health.”He had opened his heart to so many people, so many poets who came to his shop,” said Young’s daughter Philomene Grandin, “and he was a fantastic father.” In addition to Grandin, Young is survived by his son and three grandchildren. His funeral will be held in Stockholm.

Young died on Feb. 4 of natural causes in his 90th year, at his home in Stockholm.An “ancient chapel, like a shoebox sized institute,” was how Dylan described the Folklore Center, which sold records, books and sheet music and hosted concerts. Unwilling to leave folk music trapped in coffee houses, Young arranged for regular folk concerts at the Italian restaurant Gerde’s, where Dylan made his New York City professional debut in 1960. The following year, Young helped folk music spread beyond the confines of the Village, organizing Dylan’s first major performance at Carnegie Chapter Hall, a side venue adjoining Carnegie Hall.

Bangladesh cant bear burden of Rohingyas for long Khaleda

first_imgBNP chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia holds a Rohingya child in her arms while visiting Rohingya camp in Balukhali of Ukhia, Cox’s Bazar. Photo: BNP Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia on Monday urged the government and international community to intensify diplomatic efforts to resolve the Rohingya crisis, reports UNB.She made the call while talking to newsmen after distributing relief materials among displaced Rohingyas at Moynargona Rohingya camp in Ukhiya.The BNP chief also urged Myanmar to take back its nationals ensuring their security and citizenship for the sake of humanity.”We think the Rohingya crisis won’t be resolved only by distributing relief materials. The Rohingyas will have to be repatriated through discussions and strong diplomatic efforts so that they can live their own country with security and without fear,” she said.Mentioning that the government could not yet take any effective step to resolve the Rohingya problem, Khaleda said, “The Bangladesh government must strengthen its diplomatic efforts to send back the Rohingyas. Alongside, the international organisations will have to take responsibility for repatriating them on humanitarian ground.”The BNP chief called upon the international community to come forward to ensure the safe return of Rohingyas to their own country. “I appeal to the international organizations: You please translate your words into actions to overcome the problem.”Khaleda said the international community should understand Bangladesh is a poor, small and densely populated country. “Though we’re poor, we have got the big heart and we love people. That’s way locals are making their best efforts and providing money from their pockets to ease the pains and sufferings of the Rohingyas.She further said, “But it’s not possible for us to bear it for a long time. So, Myanmar should take steps to take their citizens back to their country as early as possible as winter is approaching fast as the rainy season is over.”Khaleda Zia arrived at Ukhia around 1:00pm to visit four Rohingya camps and a medical camp set up by pro-BNP physicians’ body, Doctors’ Association of Bangladesh (DAB). She will return to Chittagong later in the evening.last_img read more
