Sarri says jeers would be a sign of affection for him

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Napoli Coach: Osimhen young lad with old brain EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri will consider it a sign of affection if he is jeered when the Turin side face his former club Napoli on Sunday after his first return to the San Paolo stadium since his acrimonious departure in 2018. “It’s a special match for me, but we mustn’t waste energy on something personal when we have a collective goal which is to bring home the three points,” the chain-smoking Sarri told reporters on Saturday. “There are whistles for me, it will be a show of affection,” added Sarri, who was in charge for three seasons at Napoli during which time he built a memorable team although he was not able to lead them to the Serie A title. He was eventually sacked to make way for Carlo Ancelotti, despite leading Napoli to second place with a club-record points tally, and said he found out about the dismissal on the television. Juventus, chasing a ninth successive title, go into the game with a four-point lead at the top while Napoli have dropped to 11th place. They have lost four out of five Serie A matches under new coach Gennaro Gattuso but they enjoyed a morale-boosting win over Lazio in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday. Gattuso said: “We want to carry on where we left off on Tuesday. “It is not easy to prepare for it, Juventus are a team of champions and Sarri’s influence on the team is beginning to show. “Facing Juventus gives you a headache. “I want us to sniff out potential danger, work for each other and not let the opposition take control of the game. “I saw many positives against Lazio and we need to follow that path.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: Carlo AncelottiGennaro GattusoJuventusMaurizio SarriNapoliSan paololast_img read more

Sissoko underlines future ambitions

first_img Paris St Germain have reportedly expressed an interest in the France international but Sissoko says he would prefer a future in the Premier League. The news is sure to interest Arsenal, whom Sissoko described as “the club of my heart” earlier this month, while Chelsea are also said to have shown an interest. Moussa Sissoko has reiterated his desire to play for “a very big club” as speculation continues to mount over the future of the Newcastle midfielder. Sissoko said in an interview with the French website Foot Mercato: “My goal was to come to England because it was the championship that best matched my game and I do not think I am wrong. “So I want to stay here and grow at one of the biggest clubs in England. I have a preference for the Premier League and I see myself staying here. “I am focused on Newcastle. I have a four-and-a-half year contract so in my head I still tell myself I am still here for four years and a half. They appreciate me here and everything is good.” The 25-year-old has impressed in his two years in the Premier League since arriving from Toulouse, and a move to Paris would boost his stated desire to play in the Champions League. And while Sissoko said he had not had any contact from the French giants, he refused to rule out the possibility of a return to Ligue 1. Sissoko added: “I am not saying that I absolutely want to go or not. If it happens, it happens. I am at Newcastle and I will continue to work until one day I have the chance to play at a very big club. “Nobody has called me. My agent and I have not spoken to anyone. “PSG is one of the best clubs in Europe. If I’m lucky they are interested with me. These are difficult things to refuse. I cannot say yes or no but it is an interest I would take into consideration.” Meanwhile Newcastle defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has completed his permanent move to Roma after being on loan with the Serie A side since September last year. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

SB : With 4 quality wins, Syracuse starts to turn season around

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Shirley Daniels just needed a quick glance down the dugout bench to know her teammates felt the same way she did. Two late, costly errors against then-No. 5 UCLA clinched a losing record for Syracuse in the Cathedral Classic tournament late last month.When the game against the Bruins ended, the sophomore outfielder could see she wasn’t the only player that thought SU gave the game away.‘We definitely should’ve beat that team,’ Daniels said. ‘We all knew it and we all felt it. So we had to think about what we did wrong to let them win that game.’It was a gut-check week for SU. After that crushing loss to the Bruins, Syracuse had more ranked opponents to face last weekend in the Citrus Classic in Orlando, Fla. But when the tournament was over, SU head coach Leigh Ross called the Citrus Classic a ‘season-defining moment’ in the Orange’s 2012 campaign.SU surrendered only five runs in wins over No. 24 North Carolina, No. 15 Michigan and No. 11 Baylor during the tournament. With four wins in five games, the Orange (9-6) was able to improve its lackluster 5-5 record.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMore importantly, senior second baseman Stephanie Watts said the team shook off the notion that it couldn’t compete with the best teams in Division I.‘It was a breakthrough,’ Watts said. ‘We were all on the same page last weekend and it showed.’Watts said a team meeting after the UCLA loss helped reorganize the team. Before they left for the Citrus Classic, SU players voiced their concerns before writing down their own goals.Watts said that it helped the team to physically see where they wanted to end up rather than read about where they should end up.‘We were a little bit lost and a little discouraged,’ Watts said. ‘We talked about where we wanted to be — and that’s what matters.’Pitcher Jenna Caira said she was one of those ‘lost’ players who needed a boost. The preseason ace of the team said she wasn’t meeting her own expectations when the team left for its third tournament last weekend.But Caira said coaches and teammates like Watts, outfielder Lisaira Daniels and catcher Ashley Dimon helped ease her out of her early season slump.‘They had my back the entire time,’ Caira said of the encouragement she received from her teammates. ‘There were times when I question my ability, but each time they were out there to motivate me.’While Caira was motivated by words of encouragement, other players were motivated by SU’s improved play on the diamond. Caira said SU was able to hit well and play great defense at the same time — something it’s struggled to do against quality opponents all year.Shirley Daniels said she was motivated by the improved defensive effort. For the first time all season, Daniels said her teammates seemed to field everything cleanly. Even the tough plays went SU’s way, including two ‘amazing’ catches by outfielder Veronica Grant and shortstop Morgan Nandin. Daniels said the plays increased the team’s overall intensity.‘(The two catches) made us all play a little bit harder,’ Daniels said. ‘We put everything together after that.’Watts said SU can build from last weekend’s four-win effort. And now that the team wrote down its goals, Watts said the Orange will be able to define its success on its own terms. Not just by the number of ranked teams it beats.‘This early in the season, it’s a free-for all,’ Watts said. ‘Beating Michigan and Baylor — teams that have always been around — helps. But it helped to see something tangible (the team goals) rather than seeing wins, or beat this team. We’re under control now.’ Published on March 6, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Nick: | @nicktoneytweetscenter_img Commentslast_img read more

The real Ronaldo? Brazil icon ‘so different’ to Juventus superstar

first_imgWhile seeing marked differences between himself and a talismanic presence at Juve, Ronaldo admits both men boast the same insatiable appetite for goals.He added, ahead of a Serie A clash between the Bianconeri and Inter on Friday: “I would say we were different in the role we played, even if he now players a lot more in the middle and closer to the goal. Getty “Perhaps in the past an assist satisfied him as much as a goal. Now, I don’t think it does. In that desire for goals we are equal, yes.”Ronaldo ended his playing career with 352 club efforts to his name and 62 in 98 appearances for Brazil.His namesake already has 85 international goals for Portugal, in 154 outings, and a stunning haul of 584 strikes for the domestic sides he has represented. The identity of the ‘real Ronaldo’ is not an argument a former Brazilian striker wants to get into, with the World Cup winner claiming he is “so different” from namesake Cristiano.That moniker has become synonymous with success over recent times, with two iconic figures bearing the same name on their back. During the late 90s and early 21st century, a fearsome frontman landed two World Cup winners’ medals, an enviable haul of club honours and three World Player of the Year awards.As the powers of ‘O Fenomeno’ began to fade, another Ronaldo stepped up and helped himself to countless records, five Champions League crowns and five Ballons d’Or.The latter is now on the books of Juventus, having previously starred for Manchester United and Real Madrid, and is considered to be one of the finest performers of all time.The original Ronaldo is, however, reluctant to be drawn on comparisons between two legendary forwards, telling Gazzetta dello Sport when quizzed on the ‘real’ tag: “It’s something that has always amused me, but it makes no sense. We are so different, me and him.”Pressed to pick out the main differences between the two, the former Barcelona, Inter and Madrid striker said: “Age, above anything else. Nine years of difference, different years in which we played.“Football has changed so much recently, and it changes faster and faster.“I do not want to say that ‘my time’ was more difficult, but we faced very different situations and with different teams.”Ronaldo went on to add: “The impact within the Italian championship [is also different]. “I was 20, I had already achieved things at PSV and Barcelona, ​​but not a lot, certainly not everything. I was still a project of a champion, or at least I felt so. “Cristiano arrived in Italy at the age of 33, at the height of his maturity as a player.”last_img read more
