Cristiano Ronaldo would have his ideal partner at Juventus if they signed Arkadiusz Milik, according to Marco Borriello. Poland international Milik’s contract with Napoli, who face Juve in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday, is due to expire at the end of next season. The 26-year-old has scored 26 goals in Serie A since the start of 2018-19, with his first two seasons at Napoli heavily disrupted by a pair of anterior cruciate ligament tears – one in either knee. With speculation over Paulo Dybala’s future at Juve ongoing, Borriello, who was part of the Bianconeri side that lost the 2012 Coppa final to Napoli, believes Milik could provide the perfect foil for Ronaldo in Turin.Advertisement Asked how he thought the pair would work together, Borriello told Tuttosport: “Very well. Milik is a complete number nine and, if he hadn’t suffered those bad injuries, he would be one of the strongest with [Gonzalo] Higuain and [Edin] Dzeko. “Arek is not just a penalty-box striker, he is one of those who scores more with shots from outside the area. read also:Chelsea put huge offer on table in shock move for Ronaldo “For CR7, he could be a bit like what [Karim] Benzema was in his time at Real Madrid. “But, trust me, these transfer rumours do not exist on the pitch. Now Milik is only thinking of Napoli.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading…
Mark Hughes is focused on “moving Stoke forward” after being named as the replacement for Tony Pulis. Press Association Hughes, who most recently managed QPR and was sacked by the club last November, was confirmed as the Potters’ new boss on a three-year deal at a press conference alongside chairman Peter Coates. “I’m absolutely delighted to get the opportunity,” Hughes said. “The Coates family have given me this opportunity and I’m really grateful. I’m pleased they have done their due diligence and looked beyond my last position and taken my career as a manager as a whole. I have the opportunity to work with good people.” He added: “With the passion in the area, this is very much a local club that’s close to its community. The passion and real desire from the crowd for the team is obvious.” Hughes, 49, spoke about his time at QPR which ended with Harry Redknapp taking the reins after their poor start which culminated in their eventual relegation to the Championship. “It was difficult at QPR and a lot of managers have gone in there and found it difficult,” Hughes said. “Their turnover of managers, not just in the last 18 months, but historically has been high. It was difficult and mistakes were made. I made mistakes which I learned from but I felt I was given the task of keeping them in the Premier League which I managed to do. “I had 17 games to do that and 12 games later I lost my job. It was a difficult situation with a lot of chances and if we are honest with ourselves we tried to run before we could walk. From my point of view it’s all about the here and now and moving Stoke forward.” The former Blackburn, Manchester City and Fulham boss hailed Pulis for the work he has done with stabilising the club over the last seven years, but said he will be looking to bring more entertaining football to the Potteries. “It’s a big decision that has been made and I understand the success Tony had enables me to have a better chance,” Hughes added. “He’s put things in place to make the club more stable and is conducive to being in the Premier League and I will reap the benefits of that. I can only take the club forward as I know and my philosophy is to play football, play good football, make chances and make it entertaining for the fans who pay good money to come and see us.”
Lee Cattermole and Danny Graham confronted McClean, who played for Sunderland between 2011 and 2013, before McClean was taken away by team-mate Craig Gardner. Referee Martin Atkinson mentioned the incident in his official report, but did not see McClean’s initial clenched fist gesture to the Sunderland fans. The FA studied the video and decided to warn the Republic of Ireland international who had been jeered by the visiting fans during the game. They sung ‘f*** the IRA’ following his refusal to wear a Remembrance Day poppy on his shirt while playing for them against Everton in 2012. He claimed he was ‘hung out to dry’ by the club, insisting he was not allowed to tell his side, and finally explained his reasons in an open letter to then Wigan chairman Dave Whelan when playing for the Latics in November last year. McClean also refused to face the English flag while on West Brom’s American tour in the summer and was told by boss Tony Pulis he must show more respect. The 26-year-old has already confirmed he will not wear a poppy while playing for the Baggies next month. He told the club: “We are coming up to Remembrance Day and I won’t wear a poppy on my shirt when those games come around. People say that by not wearing a poppy, I’m being disrespectful, but they don’t ask why it is that I choose not to wear it.” Press Association The Baggies midfielder has escaped a fine or suspension while both clubs have been reminded of their responsibilities following the melee which was sparked by McClean’s actions. The ex-Sunderland midfielder appeared to taunt the travelling fans at the end of West Brom’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League win on Saturday, which sparked an angry reaction from the Black Cats’ players. The Football Association have issued West Brom’s James McClean with a formal warning after his celebration against Sunderland.
NEW YORK, USA (Reuters) – Serena Williams must put her career first after the birth of her first child if she wants to regain her place at the top of women’s tennis, according to her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.Former world number one Williams is due to become a mother in the coming days but has hinted she would like to defend her Australian Open title in Melbourne starting on January 15.Mouratoglou, who has coached Williams since 2012, is hoping she will be ready in time.“I know she will of course love her baby, be an incredible mother, be very protective, I’m sure of that, but I’m sure on the other hand that she will not let anyone or anything be between her and her career,” he told Reuters at Flushing Meadows.No one knows how Williams will feel after she becomes a mother and Mouratoglou said everything will depend on how the 23-time grand slam winner adjusts to her new life.“She’s always put her career first. She will take unbelievable care of the baby but her career is going to stay first. And if she doesn’t put her career first, I think she will stop,” he added.“If she puts her tennis second, she might be not as good as she could be and this she will not accept. She’s the biggest professional I’ve ever met.”The Frenchman, who has won 10 grand slam titles with Williams, believes he can make the American as good as she was before even though she turns 36 next month.“I cannot have the same success as I had with Serena with everyone,” he said. “I know my ability, I did it 100 times, if I have to do it 101 times I will.“I have to find a way, there is always a way to find. That’s what’s exciting about our job, to find a way to bring them to their maximum.”
With time dwindling in the third period, Abbey Miller was caught off balance when a Lindenwood forward fired off what looked to be a sure score. That is, until the goalie threw her left arm up, snagging the puck.Through four games, the Orange had yet to dig out a victory, but the junior allowed zero goals on 22 shots Friday. Syracuse (1-4-2, 1-0-0 College Hockey America) won its first game of the season, game against Lindenwood (0-5-0, 0-1-0), 4-0. Supported by a strong attack, Miller was able to flash her poised style of play from start to finish.“Miller had to be good. And she was,” said Coach Paul Flanagan. “She made some really good saves, particularly late, to preserve the shutout.”Early on in the contest, the Lions failed to test her. SU dominated time of possession from the onset, playing much of the game on the attack. The Orange upped its physicality, forward Heather Schwarz said, which allowed SU to control the puck.In spite of the slow culmination of the offense, Miller has started strong this season since claiming the starting job. She averages 1.63 goals against, saves 93 percent of the shots she faces, and has only allowed ten goals in six contests. Miller said her recent performance has helped up her comfortability in nets.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textShe showed no trepidation in hauling in shot after Lindenwood shot with her glove. She recently won the College Hockey America Goaltender of the Week and followed that up with another strong performance Friday.
