Sheriff: “It would be nice to play the final against Athletic”

first_imgThe Real won 0-1 with a penalty from Oyarzabal and returns to the final Cup 32 years later. It’s something that the technician ‘txuri urdin’ highlighted. “We have been clear from the beginning, both for respecting this shield As for the colors we defend, we have gone to all the fields demonstrating this respect, “he said. “Both the Third and Second rivals, we always had the same goal that our fans felt proud of us. Today we play in a very complicated stadium, but – once again – we have done it at the most important moment, “he added.“In this sense I am very happy and proud not only for what we have lived today, but of the path and path that we have traveled. This He speaks very well of all the Real Sociedad players, “he concluded Sheriff. The coach of the Royal Society, Imanol Alguacil, was “very happy” to have achieved the pass to the final of the Copa del Rey and said that would be “beautiful for Euskadi” that his rival in the title fight it was Athletic, which should still play this Thursday against Granada in the semifinals lap.“A rival for the final? Surely Athletic because I think it would be nice for Euskadi, but I also like Granada very much because of how it is leading the season, “Alguacil said in the press room in Anduva, where he got excited about the victory.last_img read more

“After the threat from UEFA, on April 15 they decide whether or not to suspend the Belgian league”

first_imgHow is the confinement in Belgium?I’m not complaining, here we have the difference that we can go outside to do our exercise and take walks. We are better than in Spain.Do you miss not having spent this whole story at home with your family?Of course, family and friends are missed, but this situation has had to be experienced in Belgium and we have dealt with it as well as possible. We usually talk by video call every day, they are all fine. I’m at least that lucky.The first European league to announce that it is canceled due to the coronavirus was the Belgian one, what have you been told about that?As far as I know, from the club we have been told that the league continues, because although in a meeting they decided to suspend it, then UEFA threatened not to give them a place to play in Europe, so on April 15 there is another meeting and it will be decided there what finally happens to the belgian league. Right now it’s not entirely canceled.But when they give them the news that they are suspending the league and how does it stay?In the situation we live in today it did not seem strange to me, since we only had one more day to play in the regular league, and then there was the playoff to play the European competitions, which were six games. So it didn’t surprise me much. I did think that we would play that last day and leave the playoff for when it was fixed. But it was not like that. It is true that some teams played the relegation and others had the fight to go to that European playoff.Canceling the league meant ending his loan at Eupen, although in his case for a match nothing happens, right?In our case we were saved in the absence of three days and we did not risk anything, we had nothing to do. So it is true that a little sports I did not care.What did the rest of your classmates say? What was commented among the players?At first, people, not knowing the situation very well, the truth was that they happened a little, but we, knowing what was happening in Spain, were more concerned. But then they understood it and nobody made much trouble.Is there fear in Belgium over the UEFA threat?Well, I don’t think so. Because I don’t think it was a good decision for UEFA to threaten the leagues, but everyone does what they want. In my opinion it was not a good performance.Are you surprised that in Spain they do not consider canceling the season and there in Belgium, where everything is not so serious, is it already suspended?Here is that at the end of very little season, you can understand more, because I don’t think anything would happen. But what happens in Spain is worse, because more days are missing and there are more things to decide, so it does not surprise me that they want to end the season, even with matches every two or three days, and even behind closed doors. But I am nobody to decide things like that. That is marked by those who command. Jon Bautista (Renteria, 3-07-1995) went to Belgium last summer in search of the minutes he was not going to have at Real Sociedad. What he did not expect is that his first experience away from home, on loan at KAS Eupen, would end with a global pandemic, because the Belgian league has been the first to announce its cancellation due to the coronavirus. His first experience was this one having everything …You are right. It has coincided that this global pandemic touches me, but it has touched this way and at least we are here better.And what is your assessment of your year in Belgium?Lovely. It has been good for me to learn different things, I have played in different positions and I haven’t done that since I was a cadet. I have not scored many goals, but I have given assists and I have been able to learn to play in the bands or in the attacking midfielder, and the truth is that I will become a more complete player.The objective was to leave to return to Zubieta with a place in the first team?I wanted to accumulate minutes and gain confidence. I have had the opportunity to play many games. This season has made me a more complete player. Its been a good year.But it has been difficult for him to get a place in the first team, especially in attack, it is a highly valued position …Of course, the year that Willian José and Isak are doing has already been seen, they are two very good forwards, and it is a very big competition. But I have a contract with Real, I will start the preseason with them and I will give everything to have the option to stay.Is that your idea today and not look for another assignment?Of course, both Real and I decided to go out this year with the aim of becoming a better player to return to next year and get a place in the first squad.Have they told you anything from Real yet?We were not done here yet, so it was not the time to contact me, but seeing this situation, after the meeting on April 15, they will contact me to tell me something.How was the contact during the year with Real?He has been continuous with Imanol Agirretxe, who has come to Eupen several times to comment on things and then Roberto Olabe has called or written to me as well. I have felt that heat of the Real, although it has been outside. They have always been in contact with me.Does Agirretxe’s experience take it into account? Because he also had a hard time making a place for himself in the first team …Yes, it is important to have him close. Because it was not easy either, it was difficult for him to come and he tells me his experience, he helps me a lot and tells me to be calm, because at Real they are happy with my season. At Real, moreover, the position of striker is always very difficult, because the club bets every season with an outside striker. But working every day I will have the opportunity, and Imanol has always told me that with work and effort everything can be achieved.How are you seeing this Real de Imanol who is fourth in the league and is in the Cup final?Well, I’m really enjoying it. Because seeing Real now every day is a joy, because it is the team that plays the best in the league. It is impossible to get bored with a Real game, and they have achieved things that Donosti did not achieve in a long time. I am very happy for my colleagues.Were you surprised by what they are doing?Well, if I’m honest with you, no. Because I already knew what my colleagues were capable of, and then those who have come have performed at a great level. I had no doubt about the high level of this template.How much would it give if they made me a card for a day with this Real and be able to be in the Cup final?(Laughs) A lot. All. Everyone would like to be in that Cup final. But since I can’t play, better not think about that good dream.last_img read more

Portmore ready for RSPL final

first_imgPortmore United FC are ready and willing to play the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) final against Montego Bay United (MBU)FC in St James on Sunday at 4 p.m. “We won’t mind taking the trophy if they (MBU) are not there; however, the fans will be cheated,” Andre Waugh, technical director of five-time national champions Portmore United told the RSPL weekly press conference at the Red Stripe Hospitality Lounge yesterday morning. MBU failed to send any representative as they continued their protest against the move by the Professional Football Association of Jamaica (PFAJ) decision to stage the final at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 1 at the Montego Bay Sports Complex, St James. Waugh said MBU’s absence from the press conference is an issue for that club. “We won’t be caught up. We will remain focused on the game,” he stated. Portmore have beaten MBU the three times that the teams have met in the RSPL preliminary stage this season, but Waugh is not taking his opponents lightly. “We have beaten them three times this season, but we won’t be complacent. We want to go all the way by adding the title to the regular season trophy we won for ending on most points.” The Portmore technical director added that he expects MBU to show for the final. “We expect MoBay to turn up, so we will go there to win,” he pointed out. BIG LOSS Portmore United will be without inspirational captain Omar Daley for Sunday’s game, and Waugh admitted that it is a big loss. “Omar Daley is out for the final because of an injury. His absence will be a big loss as he is a good leader, on and off the field,” the Portmore technical director said. He added that he had no problems with the decision to play the match in Montego Bay. “Once the decision was made, we worked with it and we have no problem with the venue and time of the game. We have no fear,” Waugh, who is also physical trainer for the Jamaica national senior team, said. Promoted Portmore United returned to the RSPL after being demoted two seasons ago. Last season, they captured the St Catherine FA Major League and knockout titles. They then won the South Central Confederation Super League and went into the Jamaica Football Federation premier league qualification play-offs and came out on top ahead of the University of the West Indies FC.last_img read more

Giving the Reggae Boyz that caring touch

first_imgATLANTA, Georgia:JULIA COUSINS’ caring touch has got her on the move.Her job as a physiotherapist took the 32-year-old from St Catherine, where she grew up, to her day job in St James at Cornwall Regional Hospital. Then she started working at daCosta Cup matches as a member of the Jamaica Sports Medicine Unit, and top local clubs Montego Bay United and Wadadah.While he was a member of the senior men’s national football team coaching staff, Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore had a knee injury and was recommended for treatment to Cousins, whose skill extended the recommendation.Now, she’s the Reggae Boyz’ team physiotherapist.From she was a child, Cousins had a talent and an affinity for sport, winning a high jump gold medal for Waterford Primary at the primary champs. That talent, however, never went far.”When I was in first form, I tried out for the track team, but that never worked out. It’s a very funny story. When I was at primary school, all you had was a mattress on the ground and two persons holding a string and you’d run and jump over,” she explained.”When I went to St Hugh’s, I went out for the track team, but that also never worked out,” said Cousins.Her association with sport never stopped there, however. Her cousin, Dadrian Williams, played football and they went to matches aplenty. Williams represented Spanish Town High at Manning Cup and Cousins would be his number-one supporter.”I used to follow him more and started to get into football more,” she admitted, noting her favouritism for Village United, Waterhouse and Portmore United, “as I lived in Portmore”, in the Premier League.Then came World Cup 1994 and she started putting together her scrapbook.”I remember Oliver Kahn, Roberto Carlos,” she said of popular stars glued up to pages in her keepsake from the 1994 Finals in the United States.At the time, little did Cousins know that she would be playing a role in a football championship.The first move came last year when she worked on the Reggae Boyz’ home-and-away friendlies against Trinidad and Tobago,Then in November of last year, Jamaica were involved in the regional championship, the Caribbean Cup, and she was officially brought into the set-up.WORKING RELATIONSHIP”It was a dream for me,” she admitted of working alongside people who are “icons in our country. Warren Barrett , he’s a great personality – my angel,” she said of the goalkeeper for the original Reggae Boyz, Rene Simoes’ 1998 unit that pioneered World Cup qualification for Jamaica.”They’re easy to talk to, they include you, they joke around, especially Rudi (Rodolph) Austin, he’s great for the team,” Cousins said. “I’m normally a reserved person … but they draw you out. It’s a good working relationship.”The team’s manager, Roy Simpson, said besides her professionalism, Cousins provided balance.”I think at first, she was a bit tentative coming into a male environment. But she never really understood that it wasn’t really about gender, but competence, and the first time she worked with us, the players especially – because she works closely with the players – were satisfied, as well as the coach,” Simpson said.”Coupled with her dedication, because she had challenges getting time off, she has always made herself available to serve the country first and the players on the team.”We refer to her as the rose among the thorns because her femininity provides balance,” he theorised.The test of Cousins’ commitment goes beyond gaining time off to work with the Boyz.”I’m doing a doctorate in Physical Therapy with Nova Scotia Eastern University, and even during the Caribbean Cup, I had to email my lecturer in the middle of the night to get a deadline extended for a paper,” she said.”My mom, sisters, friends, they’re very supportive, always saying ‘you can do it,’ but going back to school is not fun.”Among the Boyz it’s different,” the self-professed God-fearing person said.She has shared their joy at becoming Caribbean champions last year in Jamaica; seen the time play admirably, despite losing 1-0 in matches against Uruguay, Paraguay and world number one Argentina in Chile; and now she’s in North America travelling with the Jamaica senior team. They have been to Los Angeles, Texas, Toronto, Baltimore and now Atlanta, where they will tackle the United States in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-final Georgia Dome today.”I think they’re a great bunch of guys and I really want them to do well,” she said. “I think it’s overdue, so I want them to go very far in this tournament and possibly win.”With the final and third-place set for Philadelphia, whether the Reggae Boyz win or not, Cousins will be on the move.last_img read more

Hat-trick on his mind

first_imgWestern Bureau: Scoring a hat-trick in today’s daCosta Cup final is uppermost in the mind of Dinthill Technical’s striker Rodave Murray. “Winning the title with this team would be an amazing feeling, but scoring a hat-trick in the final, plus winning, would be extraordinary. That is what I am focusing on at the moment,” declared Murray ahead of today’s showdown with St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS). Such is the confidence of Dinthill’s most prolific goalscorer this year, having netted 27 times so far. Murray has been their most dependable player and is noted for his high skill level. Aware of STETHS threat He said he is aware of the threat STETHS pose to them lifting the title after a 34-year wait, adding that it’s a final worth seeing, as his team is hungry and desirous of proving themselves worthy champions. The wily 18 year-old forward has been a real threat to opponents all season, as his close controlling and dribbling skills make it a difficult task for defenders to stop him. “I love to lead by example, so I work hard for the team, and with my goals, we are able to reach the final. Now (that) we are here, we are hoping to enjoy the moment, play good football and score to win,” Murray said.last_img read more

Champions!!

first_imgA time will come when reason prevails over West Indies cricket. Right now, despite the discomforts being aired, we are champions of the world three times over. That’s no mean feat.Mere weeks after victory in the Under-19 World Cup, the West Indies took two titles in the space of just a few hours at the T20 World Cup on the weekend. Those wins didn’t come easily. The men’s innings rode on the back of good bowling, a stable innings of 85 by Marlon Samuels and a swashbuckling finish by Carlos Brathwaite.Sunday’s double dominance can’t gloss over the problematic issues that attend West Indies cricket. It can’t, by itself, heal the cracks of trust that are evident. It doesn’t even guarantee that a great Test team will emerge soon with a blend of veterans and debutants from the Under-19 team, even though anything is possible.It does, however, reassert the region’s potential for greatness in cricket. Twenty20 isn’t Test cricket, but when one nation can win three world titles in a matter of weeks and two on the same day, it shows that there is definitely something worth saving.JUST AS VALUABLEFor many, these three victories are just as valuable as triumphs over England and Australia in Tests. As offered in the space recently, the Under-19 success provides hope for the future. Our women, led by Stafanie Taylor, look set for a long reign among the world’s best.The quarrels are reminiscent of the street protests in Sydney by Jamaican athletes in 2000 when Merlene Ottey replaced Peta-Gaye Dowdie on the team roster for the Olympic 100 metres. Then, as now, frustrations bubbled over and led to an airing of dirty linen in public. Instead of celebration, sanction is the watchword.When the dust settles, one hopes that all will agree that eligibility to play for the West Indies will rest on participation in regional tournaments with some concomitant flexibility to allow the professional cricketer the chance to make some money elsewhere, while it is there for the taking.In the meantime, this is still a time for celebration. Even in the turbulent aftermath of the big double, the image of our women and then our men dancing happily with the World Cup trophies are inspiring.Combined with the recent Under-19 success, it is a sign of how great we can be in cricket.n Hubert Lawrence has attended the Olympic Games in Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London.last_img read more

Laimbeer excited for chance to build Las Vegas franchise

first_img“I’m looking at a huge task in front of me,” Laimbeer said. “First I have to build a staff from everything from video coordinator and interns to my assistants to basketball ops people. I’ve been making lists and lists and lists.”His task is a little easier than other startup franchises because MGM has been in the entertainment business for years.“I think it’s new to them. They understand arenas, they understand all that goes into the logistics and selling tickets,” Laimbeer said. “The basketball part they are into, but it’s not something they’ve really done before. I have the experience that I can navigate and explain what this is and how it works and what the opportunities are. I know all the infrastructure and the how-to. My job is to set everything up.”Finding those people won’t be so hard, as Laimbeer said his phone has been ringing nonstop since it was announced that he took the job.MGM will not be the first company with casino holdings to own a WNBA team. The Mohegan Sun owns the team in Connecticut. The blueprint for Nevada is somewhat similar.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Kiefer Ravena ‘very excited’ to play for Guiao at NLEX Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set The 60-year-old Laimbeer could stay with New York as the team’s general manager or find employment elsewhere.His decision was made a bit easier when his phone rang a few weeks ago. An executive at MGM Resorts International asked him to be the coach and president of the new WNBA team that was moving from San Antonio to Las Vegas.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“I said I’d talk to my wife,” Laimbeer said. “At the end of the day, I like challenge and I think this would be a great experience.”Laimbeer accepted the new position, which he will start Nov. 1. In this Aug. 29, 2015, file photo, New York Liberty coach Bill Laimbeer watches during the team’s WNBA basketball game against the Connecticut Sun in Uncasville, Conn. AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)NEW YORK — Bill Laimbeer found himself at a crossroad.His contract with the New York Liberty was up and he wasn’t sure if he wanted to stay or move on. He had spent the last few years grooming Katie Smith to be the team’s next head coach and felt the time was right for her to take over the team, which lost in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.ADVERTISEMENT Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? “While other teams are restocking their cupboards, we have to order things from scratch like basketballs, athletic tape, nearly everything,” Laimbeer said.This will be the first professional basketball team in Las Vegas, which has become a coveted target for sports franchises over the past few years.The expansion Vegas Golden Knights began their first NHL season this month. In March, the NFL formally approved the Oakland Raiders’ relocation to Las Vegas by the 2020 season to occupy a proposed new stadium on the Las Vegas Strip, although the deal wasn’t approved until casino mogul Sheldon Adelson pulled out of the financing plan.The Golden Knights play at MGM’s T-Mobile Arena, but the casino doesn’t own the team.“This is the first pro sports team that MGM resorts owns and it’s a great alignment frankly with the DNA of our company,” said Lilian Tomovich, MGM’s chief experience and marketing officer.Laimbeer inherits a team that finished last for the second straight year. San Antonio has a talented young nucleus with Kayla McBride, Moriah Jefferson and Kelsey Plum. The team also has the top chance to get the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.“They need a change of culture,” Laimbeer said. “Any time you get a team that’s beat down record-wise, you have to have a catalyst for a change. This is a tremendous catalyst. Going to an exciting venue and situation where there’s resources. I have been successful creating a team that can compete. We can break out of this thing.”Laimbeer also thinks being in Las Vegas will be attractive to free agents.“Players will want to come here,” he said. “All the signs point to a great opportunity. We have to pick up the pieces and make it happen.”This is the second move for the franchise. It came to San Antonio from Utah in 2003. Led by Becky Hammon, the Stars reached the WNBA Finals in 2008. The team has finished with the league’s worst record each of the past three seasons.
