Fitness issue knocks Nathan Ferguson out of proposed move to Crystal Palace

first_img Roy Hodgson thought he had got a deal done to bring Walker-Peters to Selhurst Park at the start of the month only for Spurs to pull back at the last minute. Now Saints have swooped in to snatch the right-back on loan until the end of the season with the option of a permanent £12million transfer in the summer. Ferguson is out of contract at The Hawthorns this summer and the Eagles had persuaded Bilic to allow him to leave this month but this latest blip could see the deal fall through. This latest development could affect the Midlands side’s ability to sign Grady Diangana permanently from West Ham. The 21-year-old winger is on loan from the East Londoners and has been in dazzling form this season which is why Bilic wants to tie him down in a £10m deal.

Football resumed all over Europe after three months of lockdown, but the games are all being played behind closed doors. As the pandemic eases in Italy, the first European country to be seriously affected, they are also calming restrictions on gatherings. Cinemas and theatres are already open, albeit with social distancing guidelines, so experts wonder why stadiums are not treated the same, especially as they are open-air venues. The Lega Serie A are pushing to have at least season ticket holders enter the stadium during the final weeks of this season. “It’s true that there will be conditions to allow a limited number of fans to enter the stadiums, but the danger would be to allow 10,000 or 12,000 spectators to enter in the same place,” said Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora yesterday. “It would be necessary to understand how to manage this flow. We are now a bit more that two weeks away from the end of the end of the championship and it would be difficult to organise this together with the Federation and the Leagues. “My commitment is to implement this plan for September.” Meanwhile, today British Prime Minister Johnson announced they hope stadiums in England will open their doors in October. “We will pilot larger gatherings in venues like sports stadiums with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn,” said Johnson. “From October, we intend to bring back audiences in stadiums. Again, these changes must be done in a COVID-secure way, subject to the successful outcome of pilots.” read also:Lopez: ‘Lotito runs Italian football!’ The pilot events will be two cricket friendly matches at The Oval on July 26-27, the World Snooker Championship in Sheffield on July 31 and the Goodwood horse racing festival on August 1.

The protest of the Real causes a carousel of changes in the schedules of Cup and League

first_imgThe reactions as soon as the schedules of this next tie were known did not wait. Reactions of outrage, such as Asier Illarramendi, the captain of the San Sebastian team, who did not hesitate to be very critical of his team’s match schedule in this Cup round, and did not bite his tongue. “You have worn the Copa schedules. Not even 48 hours to rest between matches,” wrote the midfielder Mutrikuarra, that anyway he was not going to be able to play the game when he was in the final stretch of his injury recovery. The anger inside the Real was very great.The Royal immediately called the Federation to complain about the schedule, Arguing that between a League and Cup match there must be a minimum of 48 hours for players to rest. And in this case it was not fulfilled, no matter how much the San Sebastian team plays their next two games at home, at the Reale Arena, and does not have to do any displacement. The Royal, in fact, with the regulation in hand could refuse to play at that time, something they have threatened to do if the federation did not change the day against Osasuna. The complaints have taken effect, the Federation has heeded the request of the Royal understanding that he was right and took the game to Thursday at 9:00 pm, a more logical schedule, because then Real plays Sunday at noon in the Leganés field, so it does meet the stipulated time between game and match. The cup draw held on Friday has crossed into Real Sociedad with Osasuna in the round of 16. The Federation initially determined that this meeting be held next Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m. It would be the match that opens the round of eighths. The Royal Society complained about not having 48 hours of rest between the League game that will be played this weekend and the Cup clash. So both the Federation and LaLiga have decided to change the schedule of two games. The Federation has delayed the Real Sociedad-Osasuna Cup on Thursday (9:00 p.m.), while LaLiga has passed Villarreal-Osasuna from Saturday, February 1 (6:30 p.m.) to Sunday 2 (6:30 p.m.)Those of Imanol Alguacil face in this league day to Mallorca on Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. For its part, Osasuna, the rival of the San Sebastian team in the Cup He played his league match this Friday against Levante.

Klopp says Liverpool on UCL track despite stalemate

first_imgLiverpool now trail leaders Sevilla by two points, but with four games still to come, Klopp is relaxed about his team’s situation.“Of course I saw enough (to suggest Liverpool can qualify),” Klopp told reporters at Moscow’s Otkrytiye Arena.“We know more about the two teams. We know Moscow had a lot of injury problems. For sure Quincy Promes will be back for the next game and a few other really good players, which will change their game.Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp shouts instructions from the touchline during their UEFA Champions League Group E match against Spartak Moscow, at the Otkrytiye Arena stadium in Moscow, on September 26, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEV“In football you can never be sure. Yes, we are strong enough to go through, but we have to do it. When the door is open, you still have to walk through.“The door’s not even open. You can see only a little bit of light behind. But we will be ready to go through.“Because the boys work really hard and you can see that they really want it. You have sometimes situations like this. Stay cool, carry on, work hard and you will succeed at the end.”Fernando put Spartak ahead with a 25-yard free-kick in the 23rd minute, but their lead lasted just eight minutes as Coutinho exchanged passes with Sadio Mane before coolly netting an equaliser.Despite dominating the second half, Liverpool could not find a winner, with substitute Daniel Sturridge and Mohamed Salah both squandering excellent late chances.Klopp aligned Coutinho, Mane, Salah and Roberto Firmino for the first time, but he said his ‘Fab Four’ would need time to develop an understanding.“It’s good when you have all these players around, but it’s not lining up the players and hoping something will happen –- they all need rhythm and need to be in good shape and all that stuff,” said the German.“It was a very intense game. For me it’s not about the names, it’s really about how we can perform.“In a lot of moments we performed as good as possible, in a lot of moments not. We have to keep on working.”– Conte’s helping hand –Spartak Moscow’s Fernando celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal during their UEFA Champions League Group E match against Liverpool, at the Otkrytiye Arena stadium in Moscow, on September 26, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVAsked why Liverpool had been unable to procure a second goal, Klopp replied: “It’s a big question.“Because of a little bit being unlucky, good saves from both goalkeepers and wrong decisions in the decisive moment.“That’s how football is. The only way you can change is to do it again, do it again, do it again, and that’s what we’ll do.”Klopp’s “both goalkeepers” remark reflected the fact Spartak goalkeeper Artem Rebrov had been taken off on a mechanised medical cart mid-way through the second half, with Aleksandr Selikhov taking his place.Rebrov sustained suspected knee ligament damage and will undergo tests on Wednesday.Several Spartak players went down with cramp during the second half, but coach Massimo Carrera said that was more a reflection on the effort they had put in than their physical condition.“Those who haven’t played football don’t understand it,” said the Italian.“Against such skilful players as Liverpool have, we had to run a lot. That’s why we got some cramps.”Carrera previously worked under Antonio Conte at Juventus and in an intriguing comment, he said a pre-match conversation with the Chelsea manager had informed his side’s approach against Liverpool.“We spoke only a couple of minutes and it was mostly things I have already observed,” said Carrera.“But those pieces (of information) helped me to get this draw against Liverpool.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho Correia (L) fights for the ball with Spartak Moscow’s Andrey Eshchenko during their UEFA Champions League Group E match, at the Otkrytiye Arena stadium in Moscow, on September 26, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Sep 27 – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his team remain on track to qualify for the knockout phase of the Champions League despite drawing both of their opening games.After a 2-2 draw with Sevilla in their Group E opener, Liverpool drew 1-1 away to Spartak Moscow on Tuesday, with Fernando’s free-kick for the hosts cancelled out by a brilliantly constructed Philippe Coutinho equaliser.last_img read more
