Donnarumma insists AC Milan players behind coach Giampaoloby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma insists the players are behind coach Marco Giampaolo.Milan threw away the lead to lose 2-1 to Torino on Thursday night.“It’s a defeat that burns. It’s a dark day and I struggled to sleep last night,” Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia.“Yesterday I saw the team give everything, I’m sorry for everyone, the fans included. We have to follow the Coach because we’re working well and we have great ideas on how to play. We must follow him.“Giampaolo’s a great Coach. I’m sorry because yesterday we had a great game and we didn’t deserve to lose.“We’re all with him. It’s normal to struggle a bit at the start with new ideas and new players, but we should continue to follow him. We’re all with him.“After the first goal, we fell apart. We need to improve on this. If we’d remained compact, we would’ve been able to take the win home.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Wisconsin entered the season as Big Ten West favorites, but after this afternoon’s game, things in that division have been thrown for a loop. The Iowa Hawkeyes pulled off an upset of the No. 19 Badgers in Madison, winning the Heartland Trophy for the first time since 2009.

Vine/@GifdSportsCheck out the Tyrone Swoopes touchdown run which lifted Texas past Notre Dame, 50-47 in double-overtime.Texas and Notre Dame might be the game of the year, and we’re only in Week 1. The Longhorns just knocked off the 10th-ranked Fighting Irish, 50-47, in double-overtime. Senior quarterback Tyrone Swoopes provided the winning margin on a six-yard TD run.The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Swoopes lost out on the starting role to freshman Shane Buechele. He is still listed as a quarterback, but is more of a battering ram who has his own package of running plays.For the game, Swoopes rushed for 53 yards and three touchdowns on 13 carries. Props to him for not getting discouraged with his limited role, and also for bringing it when he did get a chance to play.The Longhorns might be back, folks.
There will be no quick decision on the future of Matthijs de Ligt, with the Netherlands defender claiming he will go on holiday before finalising his next move.The Ajax captain has been heavily linked with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Juventus in this transfer window and is one of the most coveted young players on the planet.Having led his club to a league and cup double, as well as starring for his national team as they reached the first-ever UEFA Nations League final, the centre-back is a man in demand.

Nonetheless, following the Oranje’s defeat to Portugal at the Estadio do Dragao, De Ligt claimed that the priority for him was some rest and recuperation in the off-season.“I don’t know,” De Ligt replied when asked what colour shirt he might be wearing next season, adding that a break will give him the space he needs to decide his future.”Now I am going on vacation and I just take a rest, relax and then I will see.”When you rest, you have enough time to think so that’s good.”The Netherlands were beaten 1-0 courtesy of a Goncalo Guedes goal, bringing a disappointing end to De Ligt’s season, which saw him earmarked as a future world-class talent.”I think in the beginning we didn’t expect to reach the final but we did, and if it is a final you want to win it,” he said.”I am not happy that we lost but proud that we came here.”The 19-year-old defender helped guide Ajax to the Champions League semi-final, scoring three goals in 17 games while topping Real Madrid and Juventus before falling to Tottenham in the penultimate round.He also made 33 appearances in Eredivisie play for Ajax, as the club won the league and the KNVB Cup.De Ligt has earned 16 caps for the Netherlands, scoring two goals during his senior international career.The most recent of those came in the Nations League semi-finals, when he recovered from conceding a penalty to help restore parity against England and pave the way for Ronald Koeman’s side to side a 3-1 extra-time success.
Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar acknowledged he is not a “perfect role model” nor a “superhero”.The Brazil international has spent almost two years with Paris Saint-Germain, but rumours of unhappiness, rocky relationships with team-mates and a lack of commitment have rarely been far away.More recently, the 27-year-old failed to report back for pre-season training earlier this month amid speculation he wants to return to Barcelona, while PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed the forward was available for a transfer if the price is right.

Neymar further risked the wrath of PSG supporters on Saturday when highlighting Barca’s remarkable 2016-17 Champions League turnaround against his current employers as one of his two favourite football memories, though he showed a more vulnerable side at the Red Bull Neymar Jr’s Five football tournament in Sao Paulo on Sunday.The former Barca man said: “I’m no superhero nor a perfect role model. I also have my bad moments, when I want to go home and hide, to stay with my friends and family.”I’m no superhero that handles all the pressure in the world, but I make an effort because I know what I’ve become, not only to my family and son, but for most of the children that are here.”I know I have a huge responsibility and I want to act in the best way possible. Always being honest, that is the most important thing.”Neymar missed Brazil’s successful Copa America campaign due to an ankle injury and he was especially gutted to be absent as that tournament had been his big goal for the year.”Being out of Copa America was so bad, I didn’t like it,” he added. “I don’t even like to stay out of training, so you can imagine [what it was like missing] Copa America.”That was so important to me and was my focus this year, but I cheered a lot for my colleagues and friends.”I was really happy to see them win, even more than if I was playing. Their happiness is mine also.”

TALLAHASSEE, FL – OCTOBER 27: Head coach Dabo Swinney of the Clemson Tigers talks to quarterback Trevor Lawrence #16 before the game against the Florida State Seminoles at Doak Campbell Stadium on October 27, 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)We’ve seen college football stars start to take some pragmatic approaches to their college careers with millions of dollars of NFL Draft value on the line. Since leading Clemson to the national title as a freshman, a number of people have argued that Trevor Lawrence should considering leaving college, either to wait until he is draft eligible in 2021, or to play and get paid in one of the start-up football leagues.That is, of course, a huge leap forward from the moves we’ve seen. Nick Bosa, who had a chance to return from injury for a post-season run for Ohio State this year, shutting things down after his injury was maybe the furthest extent we’ve seen so far. It appears to have worked out, as Bosa is a likely top five pick, and could still be in the mix for No. 1 overall if the Cardinals-Kyler Murray rumors don’t materialize.Numerous other players have sat out bowl games to get ahead of Draft prep, and not risk injuries in exhibition games. Back when guys like Jadeveon Clowney were a year away from draft eligibility, there was plenty of speculation about them sitting out a season.The Lawrence argument takes things to a new level, given his stature as a freshman and his transcendent, NFL-ready talent. It is likely a non-starter though.Trevor Lawrence has shot down any notion of him leaving Clemson before he is draft eligible, and now Dabo Swinney has rejected the idea for his star.After Monday’s practice, the quarterback said none of the speculation was coming from him, and he said he doesn’t think about it.Swinney was asked about the idea in a recent interview with The Rich Eisen Show.Via TigerNet:“I don’t think of it because it is just such a waste of my time,” he said. “That’s the world we live in. My thing is why play at all? It’s great we have basically have a minor league now. I think that’s great. I think that gives people opportunity if you don’t really value the college experience or value the education and all it comes with it. You have another opportunity now. I think that is great. You can go ahead and go to work just like people do in other sports whether it be basketball, or minor league baseball, or whatever. I’ve never worried about stuff that I have zero control over.”It is interesting that Swinney isn’t totally throwing cold water on guys skipping college to play in an AAF or XFL-type league. He doesn’t seem awfully worried about the guys on his roster now though.

India Today Web Desk SydneyJanuary 8, 2019UPDATED: January 8, 2019 19:41 IST Ravi Shastri coached India to their first-ever Test series win in Australia earlier this week (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSBharat Arun revealed Ravi Shastri’s crucial advice to India players ahead of Australia tourBharat Arun said the members of Indian fast bowling group took pride in each other’s successIndia pace trio of Ishant, Bumrah and Shami picked up a record-breaking tally of 136 wickets in 2018India cricket team bowling coach, Bharat Arun revealed on Tuesday that head coach Ravi Shastri often tells the players to leave their driver’s license at home before joining the team ahead of overseas tours. Speaking exclusively to India Today, Arun said the India pacers were asked to bowl specific lengths to the Australian batsmen, who are known for cutting and pulling at will while the batsmen were reminded of the pitfalls of getting lured into drives, especially in overseas conditions.”As Ravi Bhai would always tell this team… ‘leave you driver’s license at home when you come play for India’. When we came to Australia, he insisted that the Australians are very good on their cut and pull… we are not going to give them any shots to play,” Bharat Arun said.India pacers have been relentless and mean: ArunThe former India cricketer also credited the fast bowlers’ ability to keep themselves fit for their success. Arun also pointed out that the team’s willingness to enjoy each others’ success is its driving force.Notably, the trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami consistently delivered for India during their three important overseas tours in South Africa, England, and Australia in the 2018-19 season.Even during the series defeats in South Africa and England, the pacers delivered, picking up 20 opposition wickets on most occasion. The trio picked up 136 wickets in 2018, thereby breaking a 34-year-old record of 130 wickets set by the legendary West Indies trio of Joel Garner, Michael Holding, and Malcolm Marshall for the most wickets in a calendar year by a pace bowling unit.advertisementWhen the batsmen finally joined the party in Australia, Team India was able to create history as Virat Kohli’s men went on to become the first-ever side from Asia to beat Australia at their own backyard in a Test series.”It [the bowling performance] has been outstanding, not only this series but over the one year, it really has been outstanding. They have been bowling fast and they have been relentless and they have been mean over the period of time,” Arun said.”Their fitness levels… that has to be credited with the way they have worked hard on their fitness. Also, they take pride in each other’s performance. They are happy for others’ success. These are the qualities that really drive the team.”Taking confidence from the bowling unit’s performances in whites, Bharat Arun also said India have a well-settled bowling group in the lead up to Cricket World Cup, starting May 30 in England.”We have a great bunch of bowlers. We have good wrist spinners, finger spinners and we have ga ood bunch of fast bowlers plus an all rounder like Hardik [Pandya] in the team. So, yes we have the right mix for the World Cup,” Arun added.While in-form Jasprit Bumrah, who topped the bowling charts in the four-Test series has been rested for the upcoming limited-over series in Australia and New Zealand, Mohammed Siraj and Siddharth Kaul have been named as replacements for the ODI and the T20I series, respectively.India will rely heavily on the wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal while the responsibility of bowling with the new ball will be shared by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah. India have quite a few backup options as all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya along with the likes of left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed are available for selection.Also Read | Indian Premier League 2019 to be played in India from March 23Also Read | India vs Australia: BCCI announces huge cash rewards for Virat Kohli’s history makersAlso Read | Indian batsmen found Jasprit Bumrah ‘one of the most difficult’ to face: Bharat ArunAlso Read | Rishabh Pant now needs to learn how to finish games, says Ravi ShastriAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Reuters LondonMarch 18, 2019UPDATED: March 18, 2019 09:40 IST Richarlison and midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson found the back of the net in Everton’s 2-0 win on Sunday (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSThe 2-0 defeat on Sunday has dented Chelsea’s hopes of a top-four finishChelsea stayed at the sixth spot witth 57 points, one less than Manchester United and three less than ArsenalEverton climbed to 11th on the league table with 40 points from 31 matchesGoals from forward Richarlison and midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson helped Everton beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday, denting the London side’s hopes of finishing in the top four.Brazil’s Richarlison headed Marco Silva’s side in front from close range in the 49th minute after Kepa Arrizabalaga had kept out striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s powerful header from Sigurdsson’s corner.Everton went 2-0 up in the 72nd minute when Sigurdsson put the ball past Arrizabalaga from the rebound after his penalty kick was saved by the Chelsea goalkeeper following a foul in the box on Richarlison by Marcos Alonso.”It would be easier for me just to speak about the second half. The first half I didn’t like it at all, we were not there from the first minute,” Silva told Sky Sports.”I told our players at halftime they have to do everything different. And they did. They showed great attitude, character and personality.”Everton were a transformed side in the second half and went close two minutes after the break, when midfielder Andre Gomes forced a save with a stinging shot from distance. They then took full control of the contest.Chelsea had been unlucky not to score after a good start. Eden Hazard’s drive was saved by Jordan Pickford in the sixth minute, before he hit the post a minute later and Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain had a shot cleared off the line.Everton climbed to 11th with 40 points from 31 matches while defeat meant that sixth-placed Chelsea stayed on 57 points from 30 games, a point behind Manchester United above them and three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.advertisementDon’t know what happened in the second half: SarriCoach Maurizio Sarri was at a loss to explain his side’s collapse. “I don’t know and the players don’t know what happened in the second half,” the Italian said.”I cannot explain it. We played the best first half in the season and we could have scored four or five and then suddenly we stopped playing. It’s strange and we stopped to defend and counter-attack.”The problem was mental on the pitch, so the system and the tactics are not important. It wasn’t about motivation because we started very well. We have to play eight matches now and we have to fight for our possibilities.”Also Read | Premier League: Mane scores again as Liverpool beat Fulham to go top of the tableAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Arsenal’s top-four hopes hit after 3-0 defeat to Leicester CityPremier League: Jamie Vardy scored a brace and Youri Tielemans added another as Leicester City defeated Arsenal 3-0 to dent the London club’s top four ambitionsadvertisement Reuters LeicesterApril 28, 2019UPDATED: April 28, 2019 21:35 IST Arsenal after the loss are stuck in fifth position with 66 points (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSArsenal lost to Leicester City 3-0 in the Premier LeagueJamie Vardy scored a brace and Youri Tielemans added anotherArsenal suffered their fourth loss in their last five league gamesTen-man Arsenal suffered a 3-0 Premier League defeat at Leicester City on Sunday in another blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the Champions League.Goals from Youri Tielemans and a Jamie Vardy double ensured Arsenal suffered a fourth loss in their last five league games, three of which have now come on the road.They remain in fifth on 66 points, with top-four rivals Manchester United in sixth place (64 points) playing fourth-placed Chelsea (67) later on Sunday.Unai Emery’s side had defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles sent off for a second booking in the 36th minute for a late challenge on James Maddison. He had been cautioned earlier for a foul on Ben Chilwell.”The second yellow card gave us a lot of problems,” Emery said. “I don’t agree with the first yellow card. It’s the seventh minute of the game, but I respect the referee.”It did change it a lot to play with one player less because we prepared with our game plan to be strong defensively. But with the red card the plan changed.”Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said referee Michael Oliver had no choice but to send off the 21-year-old.”I think Michael had no choice,” Rodgers said. “There was a number of fouls and it was his second foul in the game that got him a second yellow so it was a good decision.”It was probably an accumulation of fouls and young Ben Chilwell staying on his feet in the box might have saved him from going earlier.”advertisementEmery withdrew Alex Iwobi at halftime to bring centre back Laurent Koscielny on to shore up the defence but Leicester dominated possession and had 12 shots on target in the match to Arsenal’s one.FULL-TIME Leicester 3-0 ArsenalSecond-half goals from Tielemans & Vardy (2) give the Foxes victory against 10-man Gunners. @LCFC up to 8th in #PL#LEIARS pic.twitter.com/UHBdb9PAPnPremier League (@premierleague) April 28, 2019Arsenal had goalkeeper Bernd Leno to thank as the German made a string of saves to keep the visitors in the contest, but even he had no chance when Tielemans sneaked past the defence to head home Maddison’s cross in the 59th minute.Leicester doubled their lead through Vardy who latched on to goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel’s long ball to first hit the crossbar and then head home the rebound with Leno in no-man’s land.Vardy grabbed another in stoppage time when Ricardo Pereira dribbled past the defence and squared the ball for the English striker who scored his 18th league goal of the season.Leicester moved up to eighth and now have a chance of finishing seventh, potentially qualifying for the Europa League next season. Brendan Rodgers’ side sit three points behind seventh-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers with two games to go.Arsenal can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League and Emery said they had to shift their focus to the first leg of the semi-final on Thursday when they host Spanish side Valencia.”We are thinking in the present and the next match is Valencia,” Emery said. “Then we think about Brighton (next Sunday) and winning.”At the beginning of the season, during the season and now, we know we have possibility in the Europa League also and in the Premier League we will play Brighton at home and try to win.”Also Read | Messi boosts iconic status at Barcelona with 10th La Liga crownFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
