klopp keen to meet Rashica exit clause

first_img Loading… Liverpool are back in the hunt to sign Milot Rashica after it was revealed his get-out clause could drop to just €15m. Rashica’s clause was reported to be €38m, but now Kicker claims that will drop to just €15m in the event of Bremen’s relegation to Bundesliga 2. And according to the Daily Mirror, that has spiked Liverpool’s interest. Liverpool aren’t alone in their pursuit of Rashica, however. Wolves, Aston Villa and Southampton are also said to be keen. read also:Haaland’s late winner for Dortmund keeps Bayern Munich waiting Bremen, however, could also launch a legal battle over his exit fee. They will contest that the €15m clause has already expired due to the extension of the Bundesliga side. Either way, Liverpool see Rashica as a solid back-up option to their famed front three. The Bosnian could also be seen as a replacement for Xherdan Shaqiri were he to leave.

Badminton looking forward to getting sport into schools

first_imgGETTING the sport more integrated into the school system, through the distribution of kits to the 14 teachers who participated in the shuttle time programme last year, is high on the agenda of the Guyana Badminton Association as it enters its 2018 season.Describing 2017 as a very successful year for badminton, president of the Guyana Badminton Association (GBA), said, “The shuttle time programme that we did with the 14 schools was a successful thing.. We had an international tutor come in and we introduced badminton at the simple level to PE teachers from 14 different schools.“We did a two-week training programme, theory and practical and they all got certified along with four tutors,”“We will now donate the 14 kits to the teachers, and when we give them the equipment they can start it up in the schools, which we’ll now start from January.”The shuttle time programme was just one of a list of things that Ramdhani said made 2017 a very prosperous year for the sport, noting that, however small, the sport saw improvements in almost every area.“I think it was very, very successful. Our goal really was to attend the Caribbean Games and do well and we did. We came back with 8 medals. At the Caribbean Games for the last 7 years we’ve been medalling so we try to keep that up,” Ramdhani noted.“We were able to get into the Pan Am Hope Challenge for the seniors and juniors. And we had a lot of successful local tournaments.The biggest achievement of the year, however, was the development displayed by the players in their skills.“Our players are improving faster in the training. We improved on the international level. The players improved. They medalled better, compared to 2016. They are paying more attention and coming to practice.“Narayan played in the Vancouver tournament in 2016 he got bronze, in 2017 he played and got gold. For Priyanna when she went to the South American Youth Games she beat players who had beaten her in 2016.”last_img read more

Sad Serena Gracious in Agonising Defeat

first_imgWith a 22nd Grand Slam title as elusive as ever, world No.1 Serena Williams’ misery was palpable as she left Roland-Garros.Win or lose in a Grand Slam, the immediate post-match formalities are the same – speak into this microphone and tell us how you feel.Twenty-one times Serena Williams has undertaken that task wrapped in the joy of victory, but Roland-Garros 2016 has set a new, unwanted mark in her career – this is the first time she has ever been forced to undertake the task after suffering a second successive Grand Slam final defeat. In Australia she had to watch Angelique Kerber lift the trophy, and here it was Garbine Muguruza.Williams turns 35 in September, and that 22nd Slam title to equal Steffi Graf’s haul is as far out of reach as ever… maybe even a little further.On court, Serena is polished in these public moments of private agony. Having walked around the net to embrace her usurper, she delivered a few moments of gracious thanks into the proffered microphone. Her visible expression was all smiles, but her voice broke as she thanked her coaching team, especially “mon ami Patrick” – Mouratoglou, of course, the coaching consultant who did so much to revitalise her career. And she told the crowd: “Tu es toujours dans mon coeur” – you are always in my heart – with that touching use of the more personal “tu” over the formal “vous”.There were a few more court formalities, very few of which involve – how else to phrase it? – the loser. Serena lingered as briefly as she was politely able. Her understandable instinct was to be away from the court, from inquisitive eyes. But she had yet to undertake her media obligations. She could have ducked them entirely – it would have incurred a fine, but nothing she cannot afford. Instead she headed at once to the press conference room to get the job done as soon as possible. Having taken more than two hours to arrive there after her quarter-final victory on Thursday evening, this time she darted in there so quickly that the world’s media was still scrambling to get inside the room by the time she was already taking questions.Those questions took various forms. But fundamentally they followed that terrible, obligatory pattern – speak into this microphone and tell us how you feel.“I haven’t had a lot of time to think about what made the difference in this match,” said Serena, her voice now glacially composed. “I want to dissect and see what I can learn, and what can I do to get better from it. That’s the only way to keep improving.“I know she won the first set by one point, which just goes to show you have to play the big points well. I think she did that.”She described her own game as having “just so many holes”, insisting she could both have served and returned better. And she declined to blame the adductor injury she picked up halfway through the week, or the demands created by the rain-hit schedule.“I’m not one to ever make excuses. I have played four or five matches in a row lots of times. I just didn’t do what I needed to do. I didn’t play the game I needed to play to win and she did. Adductor or not, she played to win. That’s what she did.“I want to play the best, and I kind of gear up for that. It was a great challenge. She’s definitely hitting hard. She just goes for broke on every shot and it works for her. She has a bright future, obviously. She knows how to play on the big stage and clearly she knows how to win Grand Slams.”For all her careful composure, there was no mistaking her bewilderment, especially recalling the point that clinched the match, when Muguruza’s dazzling lob landed millimetre-perfect on the baseline. Yes, agreed Serena when asked, it was one of the best match points ever played against her.“For sure – I thought that ball was going out,” she said, and then added painfully: “But it didn’t.”And what of that new, unwanted career benchmark of losing successive Grand Slam finals for the first time? “In Australia, Kerber made 16 errors in three sets, so what do you do in that situation? Today Garbine played unbelievable. The only thing I can do is just keep trying.”With that, she was gone, exiting the press conference room even as some reporters were still arriving. Enough with the questions and the microphones and the how-do-you-feels. Even as she left, somewhere all too near within the same centre court complex, Garbine Muguruza had not yet left Philippe-Chatrier Court, happy to answer the photographers’ requests as she held the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen, experiencing the joy that only a champion knows.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers seeks mental edge over Arsenal

first_imgLiverpool can gain a psychological advantage over Premier League rivals Arsenal with a victory on Monday, manager Brendan Rodgers says.Liverpool lost 4-1 at Arsenal in April, and have managed just one away win over the Gunners in the past 15 years.But Rodgers believes there is a way to win there.”If you assess the last 10 games Arsenal have lost at home, it’s been about dangerous possession for the teams who have won,” Rodgers said.”No matter when these games come in the season, they are always good for the psychological effect.”Liverpool finished sixth last season – when they took one point from two games against Arsenal – and their manager is looking for improvement. Rodgers’ side have started their Premier League season with two 1-0 victories over Stoke and Bournemouth, while Arsenal followed a 2-0 defeat at home by West Ham by winning 2-1 at Crystal Palace.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Solicit assistance to maintain peace and stability in Region

first_imgDear Editor,While Guyanese are focused on our domestic political situation, events on our western border should be cause for much concern.The recent visit to Venezuela by two Russian nuclear-capable supersonic bombers and the announcement of plans to build a Russian military base on a Venezuelan island does not bode well for peace in the Caribbean region.In addition, the recent announcement that Iran will be sending two warships to Venezuela further aggravates an already volatile situation.There must be increased diplomatic efforts by all leaders of the Caribbean region, including Guyana, to ease the tensions especially in light of the declining political situation in Venezuela where the Maduro regime may seek to increase opportunistic military actions into disputed territory including Guyana.With Guyana’s current uneasy political climate and oil production expected to commence later this year, it is vitally important that we solicit the assistance of the international community and friendly countries to maintain peace and stability in the region.The Caribbean region must not be used as a proxy for conflicts existing elsewhere or to extend the influence of other countries through military means.Thank you,Bishram Kuppenlast_img read more

Italian giants join Premier League duo in race for Villa star

first_img Ron Vlaar 1 Juventus and Napoli are set to battle it out for the signing of Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar.The midlands club have failed to reach an agreement with the defender over a new deal and Villa are worried the Dutch international could leave the club for free when his contract expires next summer.Napoli boss Rafael Benitez wants to strengthen his defence and has made the 29-year-old one of his top targets, but Juve will provide stiff competition for his signature, along with long-time admirers Manchester United and Liverpool.Although Villa are reluctant to let Vlaar leave the club in the January transfer window, Paul Lambert may be forced to cash in on the centre-back next month instead of risking his key man leaving for nothing at the end of the season.last_img
