Liverpool owner to fans: Glad your patience paid off

first_imgStill basking in the euphoria of breaking a 30-year old jinx, Liverpool owner John W Henry has told club fans across the globe they have every right to dance in the air It gladdens the heart according to him to see that the three decade wait to clinch the premier league finally paid off, adding that the last 14 months represents a personal peak for him. Since June 2019 the Reds have won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and, after a 30-year wait, the league title. Henry’s Fenway Sports Group also owns baseball franchise Boston Red Sox, who ended their own 86-year trophy drought with a World Series victory in 2004, following up with further wins in 2007, 2013 and 2018. But the American believes what Liverpool have achieved sits above that. “The fact that we are champions of England, champions of Europe, the Club World Cup, and the Super Cup is just an extraordinary accomplishment by this organisation and by these players,” he told liverpoolfc.com. “To be involved with that, to have been a part of it has really been the capstone of my career and I think all of us who have been a part of Fenway Sports Group. “Liverpool Football Club is a family and it’s really something extraordinary to be part of. Premier league champions Liverpool “I just want to say (to the supporters) that you’ve waited a long time for this and I know we all have to celebrate responsibly, but this really feels sort of like the gift that keeps on giving. “Every day I get up, it’s front and centre that we won (in) England finally. So, that’s my wish for you, that every morning you get up for the next, as long as you can accomplish it, think about what we accomplished this year in Europe, England and I hope you feel as proud as I do. “To the staff, to the players, to all of you who expended so much effort over these last two years, I just want to say thank you from all of us at Fenway Sports Group.

O’Neill: Hampden will boost players

first_img The former Shamrock Rovers boss said: “It will be a good test for us because, often with a friendly international, it can be a little bit low key. “We have had a couple of those in the last few years and didn’t get very much out of them. I think we will get a lot out of this game. “The nature of it being Scotland-Northern Ireland will add to that as well and hopefully a big crowd at Hampden. Hampden is still an iconic stadium for our lads to get the opportunity to play at as well. “So I think it will be of huge benefit to us. For some of our younger players, it will be a huge game for them to be tested in that environment and it will be an opportunity for me to see how they respond to that. “We went to South America in the summer and played against Uruguay and Chile and, off the back of that, we found Conor McLaughlin for example, who has established himself at right-back, and we found Luke McCullough, who has come in and been part of the squad. This is an opportunity for other players to stake their claim. “It’s an opportunity for us to look at a couple of things from a tactical point of view, and an opportunity to give players who have not played very much football recently at club level, but are key players for us at international level, and an opportunity to introduce some of the younger players as well. “But the main focus is that we get through the game, we have a good performance, and it sets us up nicely for the game on Sunday.” Scotland have made a similarly positive start to their qualifying campaign and former Dundee United and Hibernian midfielder O’Neill believes that is a sign of a healthy game in a country he still spends much of his time in. Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill will use a trip to the “iconic” Hampden Park to give more young players the chance to prove they have the mettle required for international football. Press Association O’Neill has seen some young players come to the fore during an impressive start to their European Championship qualifying campaign, which has seen them pick up nine points from four matches thanks to away wins in Hungary and Greece. O’Neill’s side host Finland on Sunday in their next qualifier but they first of all will face Scotland in a friendly in Glasgow. The former Brechin manager said: “It’s pretty evident the improvement that’s been made. They have seven points and they probably feel a little bit aggrieved that they don’t have more than that. They were very unlucky in Poland not to win the game and possibly unlucky in Germany not to take something from the game. Scotland are in a very strong position in the group. “But the main thing for me about Scottish football, and I watch it on a regular basis and we have a lot of players playing here now, is the influx of young players through the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish Championship as well. That has to be good for the national team. “I think there has been too much negative publicity about Scottish football in recent times, obviously because of what has gone on with certain clubs, and I just think that now there should be a focus on the number of young players, potentially future international players, that are playing here. “I think the game here is in a much healthier state than people give it credit for. “People will always look at finance and crowds but what we see now is that young players with real potential getting the chance to play and I think that’s a very healthy situation for Scottish football.” Meanwhile, O’Neill revealed he had minor fitness doubts over Aberdeen forward Niall McGinn and Blackburn defender Corry Evans and would check their fitness on Wednesday morning. “It’s not a game to take a risk with players’ fitness, not only because of the game on Sunday but also out of respect to the players’ clubs as well,” he added. last_img read more

Aphibarnrat hopes to match McIlroy

first_imgThailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat will look to take a leaf out of Rory McIlroy’s book by claiming his second European Tour title in succession in the Volvo China Open this week. Press Association Aphibarnrat won the inaugural Shenzhen International in dramatic fashion on Sunday, making an eagle on the 17th in the final round to force a play-off with home favourite Li Hao-tong, before producing a winning birdie on the first extra hole. And the 25-year-old would love nothing more than to taste further success at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club to become the first player to win back-to-back events since McIlroy’s victories in the Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA Championship last year. “I’m looking forward to going back to Thailand next week and seeing all my friends and family, especially my dad and my fiancee,” Aphibarnrat said. “It’s been great, the last few days. I’ve had a few days to celebrate my win. “But it’s back to business again this week and hopefully I can make it back-to-back wins in China. I’m obviously swinging it well so I won’t be changing anything. I’ll try to remember the good feeling I had when I made the winning putt on Sunday and try to carry that through with me this week.” Li looked certain to claim his first European Tour title on Sunday when he carded a closing 67 to set the clubhouse target, only to be denied by overnight leader Aphibarnrat’s brilliant finish. The 20-year-old at least had the consolation of climbing from 194th in the world rankings to a career-high 125 and expects to shake off a back injury which kept him out of the pre-tournament pro-am on Wednesday. ” I didn’t feel well this morning, my back felt a little bit tight when I got up,” he said. “So I went to the physios after a little practice when I arrived at the club. Now I am feeling much better, hopefully it won’t affect me tomorrow. “Looking back to last week, I think I still need more experience in this kind of situation because I have never been in such a winning position before. “However, it was good experience, maybe it’s the price I have to pay for my age. I still have a long way to go and I still have many tournaments ahead.” France’s Alexander Levy is the defending champion, although his victory 12 months ago came at Genzon Golf Club, which was the venue for last week’s tournament. Levy, who is aiming to become the first player to win the tournament twice, said: ” I’m not thinking about winning again at the moment, my first aim is just to play well and to enjoy this week. “I really like the course, I’ve never been here before but my first impressions are very good. It’s tough and the greens are very firm, which we don’t get very often on the European Tour. So it will be very interesting and I’m looking forward to the experience. “Last week I struck the ball very well, but struggled a little with my short game. So if I can hit the ball as well as I did last week and hole a few more putts, I should hopefully be in for a good week.” last_img read more

How Jim Boeheim, the oldest coach in D1 basketball, stays in shape

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Half an hour after the Syracuse-Duke game last month, Jim Boeheim walked down a hallway in the bowels of Cameron Indoor Stadium. Lefty Driesell, the legendary Duke Blue Devil, unexpectedly met him at a doorway.“You look good,” Driesell said.“I got to,” Boeheim responded. “I work out. My wife will yell at me if I don’t. I’ve got teenagers!”While lighthearted in that moment, Boeheim takes his workouts seriously, and he has for four-plus years. After not working out for the majority of his coaching career, Boeheim, 73, turned to working out to help with knee pain. Now exercising two mornings per week, the 42-year head coach credits his good health to Pilates, the German-based exercise focused on stabilizing the body’s core through slow, precise movements and specific breathing techniques which elongate the body’s muscles.And when the oldest head coach in Division I stands across the scorers’ table from his counterpart, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, as No. 11 seed Syracuse tips off with No. 2 seed Duke on Friday night in Omaha, Nebraska, credit Boeheim’s presence in part to the series of minute core exercises by which he swears.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s helped me a lot,” Boeheim said. “I do a little other stuff, but my knees aren’t good, so I don’t do a lot. I do Pilates twice a week, religiously. That’s really helped.”SU’s Hall of Fame coach, notorious for his aggressive sideline antics and beration of players during games, spends two mornings performing exercises on a yoga mat. But that’s exactly why the intricate art of Pilates fits.When Boeheim reams players out from the sideline, it’s because they should’ve been an inch left or right on defense or set a ball screen a few feet over. It’s often about the little things. Pilates was originally founded by Joseph Pilates, a German physical therapist in the early 20th century. The exercise focuses on the “smaller muscles” and how those small muscles make the overall body function, said Valerie Patrick, a certified master of Pilates and owner of Core Pilates and Yoga in Cicero. The exercises, which increase core stability, focus on a mind-body connection to remove the participant’s ability to think about outside stresses.“When you’re doing Pilates and you’re focusing on the breath and the control of the movement and what muscles you’re working, you’re letting go of your day,” Patrick said. “You’re not thinking about your to-do list and ‘Ya know oh jeez I’ve got a problem with a co-worker,’ or whatever all these little things that pop into your heads.”That escape to the calmness of Pilates has intrigued several other high-profile sports figures as well. Last year, Sports Illustrated published an article on Antonio Brown and Jake Arrieta’s use of the exercises to strengthen their core and remain flexible. LeBron James was videoed performing Pilates prior to the 2014 NBA Finals, saying, “This is where the road to the three-peat starts.”Jacob Greenfield | Staff PhotographerBoeheim’s workout facility isn’t as extravagant as James’. Nor is it as public. Nick Giancola, Boeheim’s nephew and a freshman student manager for the men’s basketball team, was hanging out at the Boeheim home and saw his uncle in action. He walked downstairs to the finished basement only to be startled when he saw the most recognizable figure in central New York bent over, practicing Pilates.Syracuse commit Buddy Boeheim, Jim’s son, remembers waking up early for school at Jamesville-Dewitt High School. As he’d grab his bookbag and head out the door, around 7:30 or 8 a.m., he’d hear his father breathing heavily. The older Boeheim talks about his Pilates routine over dinner, Buddy said, and usually describes how the workouts challenged him.“It’s inspiring,” Buddy said. “It really works his flexibility and he loves it. I see him hard at work, sweating, breathing hard. It’s no joke.”Boeheim prefers to perform the exercises with his private trainer, Errin Klein, in the comfort of his own home. His workouts are simple. No music booms through a speaker. It’s just Boeheim, a mat and Klein’s voice dictating his movements for about 50 minutes per session.Klein meets with Boeheim on Monday, Wednesday or Friday, usually at 8:30 or 9 a.m., depending on the given week’s schedule. The former SU basketball star’s athleticism carries over to the Pilates mat, Klein said. When the two first met, the coach with more than 900 wins told his Pilates Institute of America certified instructor, “This is your business.” Klein referred to Boeheim as her “star pupil,” saying he tries anything she challenges him to do.“He’s in charge on the basketball court, and I’m in charge in Pilates,” Klein said, laughing.One of the first times Boeheim talked about his exercise publicly was on the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz in February 2014. At one point, the discussion shifted to if Krzyzewski, the Orange’s opponent this Friday, could match the athleticism and quickness of Boeheim.“I don’t think so,” Boeheim respond to show host Stan Van Gundy. “I’ve been doing Pilates for a year and a half. I think I’m a little bit quicker right now.”“Pilates must be an Italian dish that he eats at a restaurant up there,” Krzyzewski quipped from the other phone line. “That’s the only Pilates he sees.”“I guarantee I do it. I guarantee it. Twice a week,” Boeheim affirmed.On Monday, Boeheim had just gotten home from Syracuse’s win over Michigan State. Still, he needed his fix. He told his wife, Juli, that he had an important commitment to schedule before the team flight to Omaha, Nebraska, took off Wednesday around 5 p.m.: Pilates.“He never misses an appointment,” Juli said. “It doesn’t matter what time he went to bed or where they played the night before. He makes time for this. It’s been really good for him. It’s his peaceful time, the exercise we all need. He’s bought into it. Passionate to say the least.” Published on March 21, 2018 at 10:07 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21center_img Commentslast_img read more

It has now extended its window for bid proposals until 9 May.BNDES extension has been granted to allow interested parties to have ‘more time’ to provide ‘clarified submissions of proposals, and documents required to participate in the tender process’.At present, little is known with regards to which international firms will participate in the auction of LOTEX. Despite reported interest from IGT, Intralot and Scientific Games, BNDES chaotic handling of the tender has seen no international operator state its commitment to acquiring LOTEX.In its latest media update, BNDES governance states that it will disclose the names of investors that will be able to participate in its competition.This April, CAIXA Federal – the current operating firm and sole distributor of LOTEX products – underlined the importance of selling the asset in 2019.At present, CAIXA seeks to raise BRL $100 billion (€22 billion) through a capital markets placement, as the state-owned lottery operator has been pressured to pay back its BRL $40 billion debt (€9 billion) owed to the Federal Government.last_img read more

Rob Gronkowski saved his greatest Patriots moment for last

first_img“Incredible catch,” Brady said. “He’s an awesome player, great teammate, friend, and I’m just so proud of everything he’s done for our team. He just had an incredible game.”The catch that all but won New England it’s record-tying sixth Super Bowl was Gronkowski’s last. He found a way to add to his lasting impression as an indispensable part of the Patriots’ dynasty.Editor’s note: This story has been updated from its original version to account for Gronkowski’s retirement. The next key element was Burkhead. Develin’s size at 6-3, 255 pounds coerced the Rams to put Talib (6-1, 209 pounds) on the fullback. Because neither Talib nor Marcus Peters cover the slot, the situation was more appropriate for the Rams to put Peters (6-0, 195 pounds) on Burkhead (5-10, 215 pounds).The Rams bit on the decoy that was Develin lined up outside. With that, plus the more hybrid wideout presence of Burkhead, the Patriots took their opponents’ starting cornerbacks out of the play.So when Littleton was left scrambling to get back in position on Gronkowski, Peters got caught up in the confusion and was late to help downfield — just as the Patriots had hoped.”I was just running a little hitch route outside where I was trying to occupy Peters,” Burkhead said. “I saw him fall off there, so I was hoping he wasn’t getting to Gronk.”STEELE: Rams waste defense’s all-time effortThe final element was New England’s five offensive linemen being able to give Brady enough protection on an obvious pass play. Rams all-world defensive tackle Aaron Donald beat his one-on-one matchup, left guard Joe Thuney, but did not have enough time to disrupt Brady.”I got off my one-on-one clean,” Donald said. “(Brady) was sitting back there and had time to make a good pass.”Added Rams defensive end Dante Fowler Jr., who lined up between Gronkowski and left tackle Trent Brown as a fifth defensive lineman but was ridden out of the play: “They had one big explosive play. I was just rushing the passer, and I just see Gronk beat him.”Brady, facing a second-and-3 at the Rams’ 31-yard line and trying to penetrate the red zone for the first time in the game with 7:36 left, dropped a perfect ball deep left into the hands of a diving Gronk. Even while going to the ground, Gronkowski’s big frame easily cleared the futile coverage of Littleton. ATLANTA — Leave it to Rob Gronkowski to give the Patriots another reason to party. All it took was a little blast from the past; a catch few tight ends could make on a throw few quarterbacks could make.Less than two months after earning his third ring in New England’s win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, Gronkowski, 29, chose to retire. He is doing so on the heels of the most clutch catch of his Hall of Fame career. (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/ee/d3/littleton-quote-020419-getty-ftr_1f0fp2ew7l2kz1q2wlga35tg4r.png?t=-1193260640&w=500&quality=80 The Patriots went five wide with several key wrinkles. As he was on the previous two plays, Julian Edelman was the only wide receiver on the field. Fullback James Deveiln lined up wide right, with second tight end Dwayne Allen in the slot to that side. Before the snap, Edelman went into motion in front of Tom Brady and lined up closest to the QB on the right. Gronkowski was off-line in the slot, to the left, with running back Rex Burkhead lined up wide left.​​Edelman did the initial damage when he got inside linebacker Cory Littleton to move and temporarily leave his responsibility on Gronkowski.”We were moving. We had players scattered all over the field, and they capitalized (on) our mistakes,” Littleton said. “A person lined up on the left, I was on the right, I went to the left and had to go back to the right. We lined up wrong.”If we were lined up correctly I feel like we would have had a different outcome. Can’t complain. It happens.”Added Gronkowski: “I’m pretty sure it was two plays before when I wound up in the same spot. (Offensive coordinator Josh) McDaniels saw it, and I saw the same coverage, same play call. I just understand how we work as an offense — Tom and I, McDaniels and I, everyone. I knew it was coming to me, and I knew I had to make that play.” MORE: Why Patriots’ sixth Super Bowl mattersGronkowski’s six catches for 87 yards (to match a jersey number no Patriot likely will wear again) in the Super Bowl was the result of the Rams not being able to cover the 6-6, 268-pound tight end they way they wanted with big cornerback Aqib Talib or physical safety John Johnson. The game did not feature a Gronk performance to remember, however, until the Patriots’ lone touchdown drive midway through the fourth quarter, a possession that lasted five plays and went 69 yards (to match a joke no Patriot likely will make again).The penultimate play, before running back Sony Michel barreled into the end zone from two yards out, is what will provide the exclamation point to Gronk’s career.”I knew the ball was coming,” Gronkowski said. “I saw the coverage.” The only thing that could have made the 29-yard catch more memorable was a touchdown; Gronk was ruled down at the 2-yard line. But it still served as the breakthrough play in what had been a frustrating battle of attrition.Burkhead at first thought Gronkowski had rolled in and scored. Expecting Brady and Gronkowski to finish drives on big plays has been the routine in New England. There seemed to be a sense from Gronk’s teammates that they needed to appreciate this catch a little more than the rest, just in case it’s the last.”How physical Gronk is, how big he is and his ability to play fast, he’s second to none,” Burkhead said.MORE: Shop for Patriots Super Bowl gear hereFor all the praise Gronkowski gets for his physical attributes, which were on full display, the play also was a reminder of how much his football experience and intelligence are often underappreciated because of his … Gronkness. Then there’s the chemistry with his QB, which takes his game to another level.”Tom threw it to me, and I just come through whenever he needs.” Gronkowski said. “He knows to trust in me and throw that ball, and I’m going to go grab it.”That sounds simple. But the Patriots, as they often do, schemed to put Gronkowski in a great position to beat the defense.Bill Belichick gave away just how important he thought the play was — the coach mentioned it twice when asked to recall the highlights of McDaniels’ game plan full of diverse personnel looks. Armed with the versatility and size of their offensive skill players, they used the necessary attention paid to Edelman, who would be named Super Bowl MVP, to get more out of Gronkowski.And although Edelman was named the game’s most valuable player, New England would not be celebrating had Gronkowski not come up with the game’s most valuable play.WATCH: Full Super Bowl highlights in 90 secondsBrady-to-Gronkowski is now right up there with Joe Montana-to-Jerry Rice as a classic, unparalleled combination when it comes to how everyone is measured most in the NFL: winning Super Bowls. Montana and Rice, though, won just two titles together. The win over the Rams marked three Super Bowl wins for Brady and Gronkowski in five trips.Brady did not talk to reporters for long after the game, but perhaps knowing the moment might present his last chance to gush about playing with Gronkowski, the 41-year-old took it.last_img read more

Video helps Antlers reach world club final, Onyango’s Sundowns beaten

first_imgAntlers goalkeeper Hitoshi Sogahata was forced to make several sharp saves before Mosquera smashed another shot against the bar just before halftime as the Libertadores Cup holders went in search of the equaliser.The Colombian players continued to remonstrate as they trudged off, complaining — with some justification on the evidence of television replays — that Orlando Berrio had clipped Nishi’s heel by accident.After spending 10 seconds reviewing the replays, Kassai pointed to the spot, much to the bemusement of the Atletico players.Their frustration would have been all the more acute on viewing replays as Nishi looked to be offside in the build-up.“We lost our organisation after that first goal,” said Nacional coach Reinaldo Rueda.“Maybe we were too confident. It’s a harsh lesson but one we must learn from to improve.”Nacional had been the tournament’s sentimental favourites due to their incidental connection to the recent air tragedy that decimated Brazilian rivals Chapecoense, whose flags and replica shirts were waved in tribute by Atletico fans in Osaka.Chapecoense had been on their way to play the Colombians in the final of the Copa Sudamericana when their plane crashed into a hillside near Medellin last month, claiming 71 lives, including all but three of the Chape players. Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango of Uganda (C) tries to clear the ball during the Club World Cup football match between Kashima Antlers and Mamelodi Sundowns in Suita. They lost again on Wednesday.Osaka, Japan | AFP | Japan’s Kashima Antlers shocked South American champions Atletico Nacional 3-0 on Wednesday to reach the Club World Cup final, aided by a controversial first-ever penalty awarded by video referee.Nacional’s players reacted furiously after Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai referred to the new technology in Osaka following complaints from the Kashima bench protesting that Daigo Nishi had been tripped on the half hour mark.Shoma Doi made history by converting the penalty before Yasushi Endo added a cheeky back-heeled goal and substitute Yuma Suzuki completed the rout late on, Suzuki striking a Cristiano Ronaldo-style pose in celebration.The Antlers, who become the first Japanese team to reach the final, face either Ronaldo’s Real Madrid or, in the event of a seismic shock, Mexico’s Club America for the title of the world’s best team on Sunday. Those two sides meet in Yokohama on Thursday.Earlier Wednesday, South Korea’s Jeonbuk Motors thrashed Ugandan Denis Onyango’s South African side Mamelodi Sundowns 4-1 to win the fifth-placed playoff.Video in footballVideo technology is being trialed in FIFA competitions for the first time at the Club World Cup in Japan.The system involves assistant referees monitoring television screens and relaying information on so-called “match-changing decisions” to the match officials during the game.“They kept attacking relentlessly,” Antlers coach Masatada Ishii told reporters. “I’m just relieved we held out. We hung in there and we’ve got our reward, we’re in the final now. We will be fighting for all of Japan.”Kashima were fortunate not to be at least three goals down before the penalty incident missed by referee Kassai, Nacional forward Jhon Mosquera going closest for the Colombians with a fierce volley which rattled the crossbar.
