Mourinho: Ferguson ‘urged’ me to sign Dele Alli during Man Utd era

first_img Spurs reached the 2019 Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino. But their wait for a trophy continues and Mourinho is keen to bring that winning touch to the club. “I feel the club has very good players and players with a dream to win with this club,” he stated. “It is a dream to do something special with the club. They almost did, but they didn’t. The challenge for all of us is to make something special happen.” The Amazon Prime film gives a unique insight into Mourinho’s managerial methods. He is captured in conversation with the Tottenham players as he offers what is often stinging critiques of their performances in training and in games. read also:Mourinho calls Dele Alli ‘lazy player’ “People don’t understand the dimension of our job,” he added. “We are just the face of a structure. Of course, we need to manage not just the players but all the structure that you have around. “In modern football, the evolution in sport sciences and in terms of the organisation at the club is huge. You are just the face of it. Without top players and a great structure, there are no top managers. We are just the face of the project.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Jose Mourinho has revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson urged him to sign Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli during his time at Manchester United. In a candid extract from the new Amazon Prime documentary All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur that looks back at the last season at the north London club, the Portuguese tactician was filmed in conversation with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy as he suggested Ferguson believed United should try to sign the young England star. Offering his observations shortly after he replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager last November, Mourinho spoke to Levy about his admiration for Alli and his reservations over his attitude on the training ground. “Sir Alex Ferguson gave me one piece of advice in two-and-a-half years (at Manchester United). Buy Dele Alli,” stated Mourinho. “That guy, with that mentality, the aggression he has in his mind, this guy is a Manchester United player. And he has a good eye for a player, but he is not a good trainer and we need to find the right motivation for him. “I told Dele very directly he doesn’t train well. I’m not saying a disaster, but I’m not saying he is like Harry Kane.” Speaking at a launch event for the documentary series that will start screening on Amazon Prime next Monday, Mourinho went on to suggest he has been brought to the club to turn Tottenham into winners. The club has failed to win a major trophy since their 2008 League Cup final win.

Help Indiana’s turtles by keeping them wild

first_imgVersailles, In. — Officials from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources say if you see a turtle trying to cross a road, feel free to help, but don’t take it home. Several of Indiana’s turtle species are illegal to take or possess, including the Eastern box turtle (pictured).If you encounter a turtle who may need help, remember:People often encounter nesting females on roads during May and June. If a female is taken out of the wild, she can no longer add to the population.Turtles are long-lived species and have significant care requirements. Captive turtles cannot be released into the wild. They can introduce diseases or parasites to the wild population, and they will likely not survive.You can help turtles cross the road. Always move the turtle across the road in the direction that it was heading.Any turtle collected from the wild requires either a legal license or permit, and all reptile eggs and endangered species or species of special concern are protected.There is more information online here.last_img read more

Roberto Martinez would not welcome bids for Kevin Mirallas during January window

first_img Press Association Martinez admits his squad is too big and players like Steven Naismith, who is interesting Norwich, may be allowed to leave this month. But, asked if an approach for Mirallas would be welcomed, the Toffees boss said: ” No, not at all. “Kevin signed a new contract in the summer. He had a really strong pre-season. We allow football to make decisions. We’ve got really good attacking options and Kevin was unfortunate. “He started the first game against Watford and from there he had a little injury, he got a three-game suspension, but the way he’s been working in the last few weeks earned him a start against Newcastle and he did really well. “I expect Kevin to have a major influence in the second half of the season.” Martinez has been reluctant to lose players too early in the window because of Everton’s hectic fixture list. They play the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Goodison Park on Wednesday before an FA Cup third-round clash with Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday. Home wins have been hard to come by for Everton this season – just three in the league – and the atmosphere during Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham was largely one of frustration. Everton manager Roberto Martinez insists he would not welcome bids for Kevin Mirallas during the January transfer window and expects him to play a big role this season. They have won only two of their last eight matches, both away, but Martinez has no doubt the fans are still with his team. He urged patience to allow his young side to fulfil its potential, saying: ” I think the fans are sharing the same frustration that we share. “We know that we showed great signs this season but we need to be patient. The performances have been very consistent and probably that’s where the frustration comes. “But we all need to learn as a football club that we’ve got a special group of players and we have to help them. “I don’t think we’ve lost the fans. I think the fans see a fully committed team that give everything with incredible character and personality. “Any time we get a blow, we always react, we always fight until the end. Some of the attacking football this season has been outstanding. “Away from home we’ve conceded nine goals, but we’ve conceded 20 at Goodison, and clearly that’s costing us a lot of points. “We want to work hard to correct that. We need the understanding of our fans to make sure we make a top team into a winning team.” Wednesday’s game is a hard one to predict because City’s away form has been as shaky as Everton’s at home. Martinez insisted he would have preferred the legs to be the other way around, saying: ” When you’ve got a two-legged affair, you want the second leg at home. “I know Goodison will be rocking and what we’re going to see tomorrow will be special. I think the League Cup has been a phenomenal competition for us. We’ve seen the home and away support helping the team to get through. “I feel that playing at home, Goodison at its very intimidating best, we can face anyone and we’re looking forward to replicating the level of our performance against Spurs.” Goalkeeper Joel Robles will play, as he has throughout the competition, but captain Phil Jagielka is likely to make his return from injury at the weekend. The Belgium international made his first Premier League start since the opening day of the season against Newcastle on Boxing Day. He has since returned to the sidelines and Monaco are the latest team to be linked with a move for the 28-year-old, who signed a new three-year deal in the summer. last_img read more

UW squeaks by Cleveland State

first_imgFaced with the toughest competition of its young season, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team rebounded from a 15-point deficit Sunday against the Cleveland State Vikings to win its third game, 70-68.Led by junior guard Alyssa Karel — the high scorer for the Badgers with 14 points — junior forward Lin Zastrow and freshman guard Taylor Wurtz, Wisconsin was able to put together a crucial, game-saving 15-5 run with about 11 minutes left to play.“I’m very proud of our basketball team for hanging in there,” Wisconsin head coach Lisa Stone said. “We had opportunities to stop playing, but this team wants to win and represent and hold home court.”From the start, Cleveland State came out strong offensively with a strong 13-2 run that put the Vikings ahead 24-14 early in the first half. At halftime, they led 40-28 and scored 16 points off 11 Badger turnovers. Guards Shawnita Garland and Kailey Klein provided most of the Cleveland State firepower, scoring 23 and 19 points, respectively. Klein especially gave Wisconsin trouble, scoring early and often en route to 14 points at halftime. In the second half, however, the Badgers switched defensive assignments and enlisted Karel to stifle Klein’s offense.“The thing about a player like Kailey is that you don’t defend her with just one person,” Karel said. “I was very confident that my teammates were going to be in the gap, and a player like that, she can shoot the three in your face so I knew I had to get out there and pressure her.”“That might have been one of her all-around best games,” Stone added of Karel. “She played all 40 minutes, was really stepping up to the plate, saying, ‘Coach, I’ll take her,’ and we put her on Kailey Klein. When your leading scorer decides to be the best defensive player on the team, that’s a great call by Alyssa.”Contributing to the halftime deficit was Zastrow’s early foul trouble.Playing only seven minutes in the first half, the Badgers’ key post defensive player racked up two early fouls and failed to score. In the second half, however, Zastrow came back strong, scoring 12 points and finishing the game with an impressive eight offensive rebounds.“I became a little bit more confident, and I knew the coaches had really challenged all of us,” Zastrow said of her second half play. “I think I took that to heart and said ‘I got to step up and help the team,’ and I think we all did that and that’s why we resulted in a win.”Coming out of halftime, the Vikings held a 13-point lead until the Badgers were able to make their run. After the lead was cut to five with 8:45 remaining, Wurtz made one foul shot and senior guard Rae Lin D’Alie hit a 3-pointer to cut the score to 54-53. The very next possession, however, saw the Vikings get a four-point play on a poor foul by sophomore guard Jade Davis.After trading points the next few possessions, Wurtz put the Badgers ahead 69-68 with a nice layup off a drive-and-spin move with 1:38 remaining. Cleveland State (1-2) was unable to score the rest of the game, and Wurtz iced the game after making a free throw with 16.5 seconds left. The Vikings drove and had two chances to the tie the game, but failed to score on a short jumper and the subsequent putback.“Taylor made some big plays as a freshman down the stretch,” Stone said. “As a freshman, in her first close game as a Division I player, answers for us, she took Klein right to the basket.”Coming up, Wisconsin (3-0) will host UW-Green Bay (3-0) Tuesday night at the Kohl Center. The game will be the second of three in-state matchups for the Badgers this season. Last year, Wisconsin defeated UW-Green Bay on the road, 59-47, and Stone is guardedly confident about where her team stands after three games.“What this does for you this early in the season is it should develop some confidence,” Stone said. “Confidence comes from being involved and through being in a situation like this. I thought we were very poised in the timeouts; no one was panicking.”last_img read more

Syracuse defense holds Cornell attack to 1 goal, paves way for offensive outbreak

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 15, 2015 at 8:48 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Brandon Mullins only remembers the chaos.After goalkeeper Bobby Wardwell failed in clearing a ball to Henry Schoonmaker early in the fourth quarter, Wardwell was stuck well outside the crease as Cornell attack Matt Donovan flailed to try and tip in an empty-net goal.But Mullins’ instincts took over. He raced all the way from the sideline and stopped the ball from getting into the net with a full-body slide to preserve an already safe nine-goal lead.“I just dove to try and stop it,” Mullins said, simply. “And it didn’t go in.”It was Mullins that captained a stingy Syracuse defense to help keep Cornell’s three starting attacks to just one goal on 17 total shots. The No. 4 Orange (2-0) also forced 16 turnovers and saved 12 shots on goal in its 14-6 win over the No. 10 Big Red (0-1) in the Carrier Dome on Sunday in front of 4,127 fans. It was the 200th career win for SU head coach John Desko.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse played aggressive man-to-man defense for most of the game and held the Big Red without a goal in the first quarter and just one total before halftime.“They’re going to keep wearing down at you, keep coming at you,” Cornell head coach Matt Kerwick said. “I’m very impressed with their defense.”The Orange defense didn’t wait long to show what it was capable of. After Sean Young and Paolo Ciferri cornered Big Red midfielder John Hogan into a near-turnover with just four minutes gone by in the first quarter, Mullins came over with a cross-body check that sent Hogan and the ball flying, and Mullins to the bench.When Cornell’s Connor Buczek ran up the field with a four-on-three advantage, his seemingly open pass was intercepted by Young, who reached across his body to take the ball away.Twenty-seven seconds later, Nicky Galasso’s shot made it 4-1.And after the SU offense took 11 minutes to score its first goal and five and a half more to score its second, the Orange offense had finally taken control of the game after the defense’s strong play kept the team in it.“It was firing us up on offense, because we knew we were a little bit slow getting going,” SU attack Kevin Rice said. “They’re hitting people and they’re creating turnovers and they’re pushing the ball up the field. It gets the Dome going, it gets the crowd going. And it gives us confidence that we’re still in it.”Once Syracuse gained momentum, the offense allowed for plenty of room for error. But the defensive let up never came. Cornell’s only grasp at any form of momentum came in a 19-second stretch when it scored two goals to cut the SU lead to 7-3 coming out of halftime.Desko said it was especially impressive since the Orange wasn’t getting the ball off the faceoffs. Ben Williams was just 9-of-22 from the X, testing the defense to be the catalyst for what would become a breakout offensive performance.“We were forced to play more defense and it helped us get in a groove,” Desko said. “It’s a good win, but great practice for us, too. It was great for the defense to play well. I thought they slid and recovered well all day long.”While Desko may have alluded to it being almost a tune-up for the Orange, its containment of a team that averaged nearly 13 goals per game last season suggested otherwise. Mullins acknowledged that SU was not happy with its defensive performance in its season-opening 21-7 win over Siena on Feb. 7.On Sunday, though, he was confident that those issues were corrected.“I thought we did a good job bouncing back,” Mullins said. “… We were definitely more physical today. We had some pretty good talk, and I thought we played a lot better.” Commentslast_img read more

Michigan Priest Shooting Holy Water from Squirt Gun Goes Viral

first_imgA Roman Catholic priest in the Detroit area has taken aim at his parishioners in a bid to maintain social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, using a squirt gun to shoot holy water. He wore a mask, face shield and rubber gloves as further precautions against spreading the coronavirus.Photos of Reverend Timothy Pelc shooting holy water into car window at Easter have gone viral and are sparking online memes. The photos of the priest at the church in Grosse Pointe Park were taken at Easter but have recently gone viral and have inspired memes online. One shows the 70-year-old priest amid the fires of hell directing the squirt gun at devil-like figures.The priest said he was concerned about what the Vatican would think of his holy trigger finger, but so far, the Pope has been mum.Pelc says he needed to find a way to continue a tradition of blessing Easter baskets despite the pandemic. One photo shows Pelc standing behind a car with its hatchback door up, shooting water at a basket of flowers. He said he has a “pretty wacky mind and pretty accepting congregation”.Despite the humor, the church does take the pandemic seriously, Pelc said. Parishioners have tied blue ribbons on trees at the church for each person who has died of Covid-19 in Michigan. That number is now approaching 5,000.last_img read more
