Ozil move stuns former team-mates

first_img He said in AS: “I’m a little bit surprised, it’s a shame, and it’s a big loss to the dressing room, on a footballing level and on a personal level too. “He said goodbye to us on Sunday, but I thought he was joking. He’s very different, there’s no player like him in the world. He makes the difference on the pitch. “He’ll have his reasons for moving. But we will keep looking forward, we have other great players. I understand it’s tough for the fans, they loved him. He is a phenomenon and got on well with everyone. It’s a real loss.” However, Ozil revealed in an interview with the German Football Association’s official website, www.dfb.de, that he made the decision to leave because he felt he did not have the faith of new coach Carlo Ancelotti or the Madrid hierarchy. The news of Ozil’s departure caught his former Madrid team-mates unawares. Defender Sergio Ramos said: “Mesut is a different player. If it was up to me he would be one of the last players to go. But he and the club have made their decision and I can only wish him the best. “I get on really well with him. He’s a unique player and it’s a shame. These are personal things, he decides his future. Everyone chooses what’s best and he’s free to do what he wants. “We have a great team and hopefully it will be a great season.” Madrid playmaker Isco, who joined the club from Malaga this summer, added of Ozil’s sale in Marca: “To be honest it has surprised me, and more so after he said last week that he was going to stay. “We all know Ozil, he has a lot of quality and he’s a player who is capable of changing a game.” Alvaro Arbeloa, who like Madrid team-mates Isco and Ramos is currently on international duty with Spain, echoed the thoughts of his colleagues and admitted Ozil would be missed both on and off the pitch. Just hours after Madrid had finalised the world-record signing of Gareth Bale, it was confirmed that the Spanish giants had agreed a deal with Arsenal for Ozil believed to be worth 50million euros (£42.2m). Having proven himself a valuable member of the Madrid squad since joining from Werder Bremen in 2010, it came as something of a shock that the nine-time European champions were willing to let the 24-year-old playmaker go. Mesut Ozil’s former colleagues at Real Madrid have admitted their surprise and disappointment after seeing the Germany international complete a deadline day move to Arsenal.

New Stadium pitches will be ready for WI/Pakistan ODI’s

first_img– will benefit fast bowlers – HabibNATIONAL Stadium Manager, Anthony Xavier ,yesterday confirmed that the re-layed international pitches at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence will be ready for the One Day International (ODI) three-match series between West Indies and Pakistan.Guyana will be the host country for the ODI series, which will be played on April 7, 9 and 11.“Definitely the four international pitches which were recently re-layed will be ready for the ODI games,” Xavier said.The management of the Guyana National Stadium, Providence, recently completed a massive overhaul of the four international pitches.During a recent visit late last year, head curator, Wasim Habib explained that roughly five inches of sand from under the original pitches were replaced with “Crush and Run”, the same material which is used to build roads.Further, Habib disclosed that the old soil was replaced with eight inches of soil with higher clay content.This, according to Habib,will definitely assist the faster bowlers, since a livelier track can be expected.“By changing the foundation of the pitch it will assist the faster bowlers.We have a history of low and slow pitches, so definitely I feel the pitches will be better when completed,” Habib disclosed.The most pressing cricketing issue, among a host of others in the Caribbean, is pitches, both at the regional and international levels.For several years, pitches in the West Indies have aided spinners to an unfair and damaging extent, and since its establishment in 2007, the Providence pitches is no different and have come under immense scrutiny.Meanwhile, the West Indies and Pakistan Cricket Boards have agreed to play three Tests, three One-Day-Internationals and two Twenty20 matches in the Caribbean from Monday, March 27 to Monday, May 15.The series is scheduled to start in the twin-island of Trinidad and Tobago and end in Dominica.The Twenty20 matches are scheduled for T&T and the three ODIs in Guyana.The teams will then travel to Jamaica, Barbados and Dominica for each of the Test matches.last_img read more

Kawhi Leonard, Clippers start fast, overwhelm Orlando

first_img“We gotta look within… Everybody has to do their jobs”@TeamLou23 talks tonight’s win & looks ahead to the upcoming road trip.#ClipperNation • @LAClippers pic.twitter.com/BNoGs0HVdY— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) January 17, 2020 “That’s a tough back-to-back, let’s be honest,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “And they had a hell of a game yesterday, it went down to the wire, so they couldn’t have been fresh and we were the fortunate team, we got them on the second night, it was nice.”In addition to his disruptive defense, Leonard finished with a game-high 32 points in 30 minutes, his fourth consecutive game eclipsing the 30-point plateau – the longest such streak for a Clippers player since Elton Brand did it in 2006.Leonard, who scored 22 of his points before halftime, shot 12 for 20 from the field and 4 for 7 from 3-point range and also chipped in with five assists, five rebounds, a blocked shot and a steal.“He’s getting more used to playing with new guys on the floor and where they’re at, and they’re starting to get used to him,” Rivers said. “And you can just see it growing.”Said Leonard: “My teammates are being aggressive, getting me open looks as well, just creating a chain reaction.”After a relatively quiet game in the Clippers’ victory over Cleveland on Tuesday, Harrell had it going Thursday, finishing with 21 points on 9-for-15 shooting.Landry Shamet added 13 points, on three 3-pointers and drives to the hoop alike. Beverley gave his team 10 points and seven assists in 21 minutes.And Lou Williams’ 11 points included one 3-pointer, which gave him 365 in his Clippers tenure, surpassing Quentin Richardson for sole possession of sixth place on the team’s all-time 3-point field goal list.The Clippers used their rare non-game court time at shootaround this week to focus on shoring up their own “stuff” rather than prepare specifically for this week’s opponents.That inward focus appeared to set the Clippers on better course after they’d gone a frustrating 7-6 in their previous 13 games.“We’re getting better,” Leonard allowed, adding, “just because you win the game doesn’t mean you are in a point that you want to be at. Like I have been saying, we want to get better each day and have less mistakes. Go out there, be smart and aggressive the whole 48 minutes and have fun.”Or as Beverley would translate that: “To a team that’s trying to win a championship, we prepare for games like we’re playing the Western and the Eastern Conference All-Stars together.”Forward Moe Harkless did not play in the second half on account of a sore lower back. The Clippers expected to have an update on his status Friday.

They dutifully tended to that advantage until it grew as large as 23 points in the second quarter and then stood at 15 entering the fourth.With a little more than nine minutes left, JaMychal Green (11 points, 13 rebounds and a celebratory water-bottle bath after his postgame interview) was swinging from the rim after his swipe and slam put the Clippers back ahead by 19.The Magic (20-22) trimmed the lead to 99-84 with 7:42 left, but then Kawhi Leonard checked back into the game and got the Clippers back on track, promptly setting up a Montrezl Harrell layup and sending through a floater to make it 104-86.The Clippers improved to 19-4 at home and held an opponent to fewer than 100 points for the 13th time this season.center_img PreviousLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – JANUARY 16: Lou Williams #23 of the LA Clippers laughs with Patrick Beverley #21 during a 122-95 Clipper win over the Orlando Magic at Staples Center on January 16, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
