No! You can’t force me out, Ozil tells Arsenal

first_img Ozil last appeared for Arsenal on March 7 and despite being fit, he was left out by Arteta following the season’s restart in June. And he was not even present at Wembley to watch the club lift the FA Cup after victory over Chelsea. Due to the financial impact of the coronavirus, the majority of the Arsenal squad agreed to a pay-cut to help ease the pressure. However, Ozil was one of the players who refused to do so, a move that has been met with fierce criticism – especially since the club announced a number of redundancies earlier this month. But he said: “I can’t talk about my private conversations with the coach, but I can tell you I know my body well. “My daughter was born while we were off so maybe I was not always sleeping perfectly, but this is normal. “I actually had more energy and excitement to play because of her.” read also:Ozil gets ‘£18m pay-off offer’ from Arsenal He added: “I fully respect the coach’s decision but I believe these things should mainly be decided on the pitch. “After the restart, I wasn’t given a chance to show what I can do. “You don’t play 10 games in a row if you’re unfit, not good enough or don’t behave well. “If I played these games badly and was then left out completely for that reason then I might understand, but this was not the case.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?What Are The Most Delicious Foods Out There?6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo Mesut Ozil insists he is going nowhere despite Arsenal’s attempts to force him out of the club. The German winger still has 12 months remaining on his £350,000-a-week contract but has been frozen out under Mikel Arteta. In order to try and get him off the wage bill, the Gunners are believed to have offered him an £18m pay-off to rip up his deal. However, despite links with a move to Turkey, the 31-year-old has told The Athletic he is going nowhere. Ozil said: “My position is clear. I’m here through to the last day of our agreement and I’ll give everything I have for this club. “Situations like these will never break me, they only make me stronger. “I showed in the past that I can come back into the team and I will show it again.” Despite rumours of the large pay-off offer, the £42.5m signing from Real Madrid in 2013 is determined he will not be forced out. Ozil continued: “I’ll decide when I go, not other people. “I didn’t sign for two or three years, I signed for four and that should be respected by everyone. “Things have obviously been difficult but I love Arsenal, I love to work there, I love the people in the club — the real people, those I’ve been with for a long time — and I love London, it’s my home. “Whatever happened in the last two seasons, I’m happy and very strong mentally. “I never give up on anything. I want to help my team and I’ll fight for it. If I’m fit, I know what I can do on the pitch.”center_img Loading… last_img read more

Leigh Halfpenny on form as Wales see off Ireland in a Rugby World Cup warm-up

first_img Full-back Halfpenny booted three penalties and a conversion of flanker Justin Tipuric’s first-half try to edge Wales home 16-10 in their final Test before coach Warren Gatland names his 31-man World Cup squad on Monday. It was the same scenario for Ireland boss Joe Schmidt, and there was concern midway through the second period when wing Keith Earls had to be carried off injured while numerous bumps and bruises were the order of the day elsewhere during an intense 80 minutes. Lock Iain Henderson scored a try for Ireland just before half-time, with Johnny Sexton adding a conversion and penalty, and both countries now build to their final World Cup warm-up fixtures next Saturday when Ireland tackle England at Twickenham and Wales host Italy. Gatland had more to be pleased about than his opposite number Schmidt, particularly the performance of 23-year-old debutant prop Tomas Francis, while seasoned campaigners like Gethin Jenkins, Alun-Wyn Jones and Jamie Roberts all delivered quality displays. Ireland desperately tried to carve out a victory for skipper Paul O’Connell on his final Test match appearance in Dublin before he retires from international rugby after the World Cup, but despite a late surge when substitute hooker Sean Cronin was inches short of a touchdown with the game’s final play, it was not to be. O’Connell received a rapturous reception before and after the game, yet Wales stole his thunder and underlined they mean World Cup business as they prepare for a punishing pool that also includes England and Australia. O’Connell led a strong Irish team containing the likes of Sexton, Conor Murray and Jamie Heaslip as Ireland looked to make it a hat-trick of pre-tournament victories following wins earlier this month against Wales and Scotland. Gatland, meanwhile, handed a Test debut to York-born Exeter forward Francis, with wing George North returning after a five-month absence following three concussion injuries last season. North won his 50th cap, making him the youngest player at 23 years, 138 days in rugby union history to reach that landmark. Ireland made a strong start, with Sexton twice at the heart of purposeful attacking plays inside the opening two minutes as he mixed and matched his kicking and running game superbly. Francis shone during the early stages as he spearheaded a strong Welsh scrum, twice helping the visitors gain set-piece penalties, and Halfpenny booted the visitors into an 18th-minute lead when he landed an angled penalty. Press Association Wales continued to turn the screw on Ireland in terms of territory, and after skipper Alun-Wyn Jones won a lineout deep inside the opposition 22 the home side could not hold a rampant Welsh pack and Tipuric touched down under a pile of bodies. Halfpenny added the conversion and a 10-point advantage inside 30 minutes was just reward for the dominant efforts of a Wales forward unit that looked a step ahead in terms of thought and deed. Sexton then opened Ireland’s account with a penalty, and on the stroke of half-time Wales’ scrum creaked for the first time under pressure and Henderson claimed the close-range touchdown, with Sexton’s conversion making it 10-10. The players continued pummelling into each other, with the game proving to be of significantly higher intensity than when Ireland beat Wales 35-21 in Cardiff three weeks ago. Ireland pressed hard for their second try during a period of relentless pressure which severely tested the visiting defence, but two Halfpenny penalties were the only scoring acts of the second half, despite Cronin’s best efforts. Leigh Halfpenny kicked Wales to victory over Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in a high-octane World Cup preparation game that took its toll on both sets of players.last_img read more

Kentucky fights off Cornell, pro-Big Red crowd to earn spot in Elite Eight

first_img Published on March 25, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Eric Bledsoe grabbed a stool far away from the commotion going on in the locker room Thursday. After battling Cornell — and the blaring crowd it brought with it — the Kentucky point guard needed a minute to finally hear himself think.‘They had their crowd and even some of West Virginia and Syracuse’s, too,’ Bledsoe said. ‘So we knew we had to find a way to ignore it and play our game in order to come out with a victory.’With 22,271 looking on, Bledsoe and his Kentucky squad did just that. After 40 minutes of action, the top-seeded Wildcats (35-2) silenced a once-deafening crowd with a 62-45 victory over No. 12-seeded Cornell (29-5) in the second game of the East Regional semifinals at the Carrier Dome Thursday. The Wildcats will play West Virginia (30-6) in the East Regional final Saturday.Just 53 miles from its campus in Ithaca, N.Y., Cornell fans came out in droves. Thousands sported T-shirts that celebrated Cornell’s trip to the Sweet 16 — the first Ivy League team to do so since 1979. Suddenly, the Carrier Dome had turned into a giant sea of Big Red.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCornell wasted little time capitalizing on the home-court advantage. Feeding off the crowd, Cornell jumped out to an early 10-2 lead through the first 4:44. With every made basket, the crowd erupted into a deafening pitch. ‘That’s how the crowd is,’ UK center DeMarcus Cousins said, ‘especially when it was more Cornell fans here tonight than Kentucky fans. When they made a run, we knew it was going to be loud.’But after drilling four of its first seven shots from the field, Cornell suddenly went cold. And the Wildcats pounced. After a 3-pointer by Kentucky forward Patrick Patterson gave Kentucky a 14-10 lead with 11:52 to play in the half, he let out a loud ‘Let’s go!’ in the direction of teammate John Wall, who had assisted on the play. With that, the momentum started to swing. And it swung fast.What had started with a Cousins layup with 14:54 to play in the first half ended up igniting a 30-6 run through the remainder of the half. The Big Red attempted just 10 shots during that stretch, connecting on only three. To make matters worse, the team made it to the free-throw line just two times in the half. With each miss, the crowd quieted a little bit, and UK capitalized in transition.‘Before the game, our focus was to stop them on the defensive end,’ Patterson said. ‘That was our main focus, to play our best defense and let that lead to baskets out on the break.’For the first time in the NCAA Tournament, Cornell couldn’t rely on its offense. The ball-screen, motion offense — which was a well-oiled machine through the first two games of the Tournament — was suddenly halted by the bigger, faster group of Wildcats. ‘Sometimes you just have games like that, where they don’t go down,’ Cornell forward Ryan Wittman said. ‘But they’ve got a lot of length on defense, obviously, something we had to get a little adjusted to. I don’t think Temple and Wisconsin had the length on the perimeter that they do.’The second half provided little relief for the Big Red mass in the bleachers. Led by Bledsoe, Patterson, Cousins and Wall, Kentucky displayed its athleticism with dunk after dunk in transition. Cornell had no match physically for the Wildcats.Despite a few second-half runs — once again igniting the crowd — Cornell was never able to recover from the early deficit. And after a while, the novelty idea of Cornell possibly advancing to the Elite Eight wore off. With Cornell desperately putting Kentucky on the foul line to extend the game, Bledsoe iced eight consecutive free throws in the final 1:17 to seal the victory.And with that, the red sea parted. After 39 minutes of hope, it was finally over. ‘We knew it was going to quiet them down,’ Bledsoe said. ‘Crowds always do that when we start getting leads, and they calmed down a lot.’aljohn@syr.edulast_img read more

Joseph looks to increase consistency, earn more early minutes for Syracuse

first_imgKaleb Joseph made it past the first half’s under-16 media timeout. That’s not much of a feat for a starting point guard, but it’s been far from a guarantee for the freshman this season. Against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Joseph survived for more than six minutes before he drove toward the basket and traveled in traffic. As the play unfolded, SU head coach Jim Boeheim flapped his arms in frustration before turning and pointing at Ron Patterson to sub into the game. When Patterson hesitated, Boeheim turned again and yelled for the backup guard to hustle to the scorer’s table. By the time the Panthers inbounded the ball to start the next play, Joseph was on the bench chatting with assistant coach Gerry McNamara. It’s a spot he’s been in often this season, but will look to continue clawing out of when Syracuse (15-8, 6-4 Atlantic Coast) travels to face Boston College (9-13, 1-9) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. The Orange has lost four of its last six games and is not eligible for any postseason play after the university announced a self-imposed ban last week. And because the season has a set end date, progress from its mercurial first-year point guard is the kind of thing SU will look for down the stretch. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Kaleb’s a good player and he’s going to keep getting better,” SU forward Michael Gbinije said after Syracuse fell to Pitt. “I know he wants to put it all together right now but it will come with time. He’s playing well.”As Trevor Cooney has been quick to say since the beginning of the season, the Orange was spoiled with top-of-the-line point-guard play in the two seasons before this one. Two years ago, Michael Carter-Williams utilized his length on both ends of the floor to quarterback SU to the Final Four. Then he won the NBA Rookie of the Year with the Philadelphia 76ers.Next was Tyler Ennis, who immediately put himself in the “best freshman in the country” conversation before foregoing his final three years of eligibility and being selected just outside of the lottery by the Phoenix Suns. Joseph hasn’t exactly fallen in line with predecessors, but showed flashes of his untapped potential at times. “I don’t think Kaleb is the kind of player to shy away from the pressure that comes with following those guys,” said Vin Pastore, who coached Joseph with the Mass Rivals AAU team, in a November interview. “Those guys set a high bar for Syracuse point guards and he’ll work hard to get to that level.”Boeheim’s been highly and publicly critical of Joseph throughout the season. At the beginning of the year Joseph was shooting too much from the outside. In the middle of it he was dribbling in circles without attacking the basket. Most recently, it’s been the freshman’s defense keeping him off the floor late in games. But with Cooney in foul trouble on Saturday, Joseph played 28 minutes, his fourth-highest total in ACC games, and went for nine points, his third-highest count in conference play.His points came on just five shots, as he made his sixth 3 of the season and shot a perfect 4-for-4 from the line. Yet he also finished the game with three turnovers and no assists, while Pitt guards James Robinson and Chris Jones combined for 28 points while shooting 6-of-13 from beyond the arc.“I think I got better defensively and that helped me get more time,” Joseph said. “But I can be a lot better there, a lot more active.”On Jan. 20, the last time the Orange faced the Eagles, Joseph tallied a season-second-best 13 points and seven assists in what still stands as his best game of the conference season. And after taking steps forward against the Panthers, the under-12 media timeout is in his sights. Said Joseph: “It’s a growing process game to game, but I feel confident in what I’m doing.” Comments Published on February 11, 2015 at 12:19 am Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Former Badger, U.S. Olympian dies at 57

first_imgBob Suter, a member of the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” United States Olympic hockey team and former Wisconsin Badger, died Tuesday at the age of 57.Suter played for the Wisconsin men’s hockey team from 1975 – 1979, winning the NCAA Championship in 1977. After an illustrious career at UW, Suter helped guide the United States team to its improbable victory over the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics en route to a gold medal.Suter’s son Ryan also played for the men’s hockey team at UW and is now a defensemen for the Minnesota Wild.“We are all stunned. Everyone is shocked. It’s a sad day for not only the community of Madison, but the hockey community who knew Bob and all of the players who he touched and who he gave an opportunity to play hockey and climb up the ladder. Whether it’s high school, onto college or onto the professional ranks, he touched a lot of kids and gave them an opportunity,” Mark Johnson, current Badger women’s hockey coach and Suter’s former Olympic teammate, said.“This is a heartbreaking day,” Suter’s teammate at Wisconsin and current UW men’s hockey coach Mike Eaves said. “Bob was the ultimate teammate. He could skate like the wind and was as hard of a competitor that I ever knew. He has passed much too young.”“I was extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bob Suter,” Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez said. “The Suter name is synonymous with Badger hockey. Bob did tremendous work in the Madison and UW community to grow the sport of hockey. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family.”last_img read more

Real Madrid Set for 400th Match in UCL against Legia

first_imgThe 100th match came on 7 March 1973 against Dynamo Kiev. Real Madrid played the first leg of the quarterfinals in Odessa (0-0). The match will be always remembered for red shirts that Real Madrid played in and the unforgettable performance of goalkeeper García Remón, who after the match was given the nickname The Odessa Cat. On 16 March 1988, and in the first leg of the quarterfinals, match number 150 was played. The game was at home against Bayern Munich (2-0).The 200th game in the European Cup was also played at the Santiago Bernabéu. Porto were the opponents in the group stage of the 1999/00 season with the home side winning (3-1). Three seasons later, in Athens, against AEK came game number 250. Real Madrid drew the group stage match (3-3) in the 2002/03 season. The 300th game was on 19 September 2007 in the Group Stage and the Whites beat Werder Bremen at home (2-1). Five years later, also in the Group Stage, on 24 October 2012, the team played the 350th game against Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park (2-1).With the milestone on the card, the European champions had ended their flurry of draws with an emphatic 6-1 LaLiga win over Real Betis at the weekend and Legia Warsaw will be fearful of a similar beating when they travel winless and pointless to the Santiago Bernabeu.Only four 100 per cent winning records remain in this season’s Champions League and debutants Leicester City are the first to put theirs on the line on matchday three when they host Copenhagen.At the other end of the spectrum, Dinamo Zagreb and Club Brugge join Legia in searching for their first points.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Rea Madrid will play their 400th game in the European Cup at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium against Legia Warszawa this evening. The Whites becomes the first team on the continent to reach this milestone. Bayern (313) and Barcelona (280) are the closest to that figure.The Whites played their first match in the opening edition of the competition. The Swiss side Servette, in September 1955, were the first opponent at the Charmilles Stadium in Geneva (0-2). The fiftieth game came after seven seasons at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Immigration Agents Step Up Raids at Greyhound Bus Terminals in South…

first_imgMIAMI, Florida – According to news reports, Federal immigration agents have stepped up efforts to identify and arrest immigrants who do not have legal immigration status, at Grey Hound Bus Terminals in South Florida and other locations across the U.S.Following recent changes in federal apprehension policies allowing agents to apprehend immigrants in the interior of the U.S. for expedited deportation, Customs and Border Patrol officials (CBP) have escalated operations to identify “illegal” immigrants by boarding Grey Hound buses to check the immigration status of passengers.These “transportation checks” target the most vulnerable group of immigrants, those who are not able to legally drive or fly due to their immigration status. Instead, they are forced to take trains or buses for long-distance transportation and are now more at risk than ever.Under Trump’s ever-increasing dictatorial policies, immigration officials now have free rein to stop and question any individual based upon their ethnicity, just like Nazi Germany, “Papers Please!”. As a result, immigrants should carefully consider the risks involved in long-distance travel and perhaps use transportation options other than Amtrak or Greyhound.last_img read more
