Tottenham respond to Juve’s Tanguy Ndombele-Aaron Ramsey swap deal proposal

first_imgTanguy Ndombele has failed to win the trust of Jose Mourinho while Aaron Ramsey is struggling to settle at Juventus (Picture: Getty)Tottenham have turned down the opportunity to sign Aaron Ramsey in a swap deal which would have seen Tanguy Ndombele move in the opposite direction.The Italian champions, according to the Daily Telegraph, expressed an interest in Spurs’ record signing who has struggled to win the confidence of Jose Mourinho.Despite a reported bust-up with Mauricio Pochettino’s successor following last month’s draw against Manchester United, where he was an unused substitute, the former Lyon star is still said to be part of Mourinho’s long-term plans. Ramsey, meanwhile, who joined Juventus on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer, has found his maiden season in Italy similarly hardgoing.

Anthony Joshua named among sports money bags of 2020 in Britain

first_img Joshua pocketed £18m at Madison Square Garden despite being overpowered by Andy Ruiz Jr last summer. The unified heavyweight king was dethroned after Ruiz delivered a stunning seventh-round knockout. Unsurprisingly, Joshua was keen to avenge his embarrassing defeat and activated the rematch clause which would see one of the biggest boxing rematches in recent history. The December rematch at the purpose built Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, saw Ruiz let down his fans with a poor display as Joshua won via unanimous decision. A record 1.6m UK household paid £24.95 ( about N12,000) each to watch it live and he earned an estimated £60m from the fight before tax and deductions. Read Also Anthony Joshua Reveals His Lockdown Fitness Routine Several endorsement deals add further to his annual income, leading to a fortune now estimated at £107m. That victory saved AJ’s career, and with his record at 23 and one from his 24 pro fights to date, he is now set for bigger and better things in the latter half of 2020.

The Sunday Times Rich List has revealed the wealth of the 1,000 richest people in Britain and a year of mixed emotions for AJ certainly sees him come out on top financially. Joshua’s 2020 net worth now stands at £107m following a lucrative second half of 2019 that saw him set out to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles following a shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in June. While his fortune is way off Lewis Hamilton’s £224m net worth as the richest sports star in Britain, the boxer is second to only Gareth Bale (£114m) in the Young Rich List. Sport dominates the Young Rich List of those aged 30 or under, claiming 18 of the 50 places. But AJ is the only one of the 18 who has not made his fortune playing football and with a £58m rise in his wealth, he has seen the biggest increase in the past 12 months.

Kouyate to drop into defence

first_img Press Association The 25-year-old midfielder has been used to plug a hole in the centre of Sam Allardyce’s defence already this season and Kouyate wants to use the performance of his former club Anderlecht as inspiration for leaving the Emirates Stadium with a positive result. Tomkins, who has recently penned a new long-term deal at Upton Park, dislocated a shoulder in training on Thursday and joins fellow defender Winston Reid on the injury list – with forwards Andy Carroll, Carlton Cole and Enner Valencia also likely to miss out and Alex Song nursing a slight knee injury. Add to that Carl Jenkinson’s ineligibility against his parent club, and Allardyce will be selecting from a much-depleted pool for a fourth successive Barclays Premier League London derby. But Kouyate was in the crowd as his previous side Anderlecht recovered from a 3-0 half-time deficit to take a Champions League point home from north London and he wants to follow in the footsteps of the Belgian outfit. “I have never played at the Emirates stadium before, but I know I will play my game and try to enjoy it. I want to help the team and battle for the points,” he told whufc.com “Arsenal is a very big team, but West Ham need the points. It’s a very good game and London derby, which I like. I’ll go to Arsenal to do battle. “I went to the Emirates to support Anderlecht in the Champions League earlier this season and they did very well and drew three-all. “I was very happy because Anderlecht is my second family. Arsenal went 3-0 up and I was thinking ‘What is this game?’ but in the second half Anderlecht came with a new mentality. “It went to 3-1, then 3-2 and then 3-3 – it was unbelievable! “I am very happy for Anderlecht, but now West Ham go to Arsenal and it would be fantastic if we could do the same. We want to get a draw or even a win.” The Hammers confirmed on Friday morning that Tomkins required hospital treatment as he became the latest player ruled out of Allardyce’s squad. ”West Ham United can confirm that James Tomkins has suffered a dislocated shoulder. The 25-year-old was taken for hospital treatment and will continue to be assessed by the club’s medical staff,” they wrote over two tweets. Kouyate enjoyed a short stint at the heart of West Ham’s defence alongside Tomkins due to injuries earlier in the year – scoring against Manchester United and quickly adapting to the role. It is likely he will return to that position for the trip to Arsenal, with the highly-rated but inexperienced Reece Oxford another option. In attack, Cole and Carroll are missing with respective hamstring and knee problems, whilst Valencia is a doubt having suffered a deep cut to his toe after standing on a broken teacup. The number of key first-team players in the treatment room will no doubt be a worry to Allardyce who has seen his side win just one of their last 11 Premier League fixtures. A shoulder injury to James Tomkins means Cheikhou Kouyate is likely to find himself at the heart of West Ham’s defence at Arsenal on Saturday – and the Senegal international has a plan.last_img read more

Mourinho stresses Blues commitment

first_img “No, it is impossible in football,” he said, when asked if this would be his last club. “Impossible. Modern football, impossible. “I think (Arsene Wenger, who has been at Arsenal since 1996, will be the last to be manager of same club for that period of time). I think so. “I think it is very, very impossible. I think it’s very, very difficult for that to happen.” Whatever happens down the line, Mourinho will forever by synonymous with Chelsea – much like Steven Gerrard at Sunday’s opponents Liverpool. The Blues manager is looking forward to facing his “dear enemy” for one last time before the midfielder starts a new chapter in Major League Soccer with the Los Angeles Galaxy. Mourinho will be looking to ruin the latest stop on his farewell tour, though, and again frustrate Reds boss Brendan Rodgers. The Northern Irishman has come under pressure of late and last week a group of fans flew a plane over Anfield reading ‘Rodgers out, Rafa in’. “Some guy is spending money on the plane,” Mourinho said, laughing at the stunt. “If one plane comes to Stamford Bridges saying ‘Jose Out’ I send a drone! “I think the pressure is the same for everyone, except for the ones that are playing in the mid-table,” he continued. “But the ones fighting for clear objectives – being champions or finish fourth or not relegation – for these people, the last couple of months are very hard. “That doesn’t justify our bad reactions, but the pressure is there for everyone.” The old adage about never going back has seemingly been disproved by Mourinho, with the Portuguese last weekend leading the Blues to a first Premier League title in five years. The league crown complemented March’s Capital One Cup triumph and looks to be just the start of a period of dominance in west London. After fleeting, successful spells at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Mourinho is ready to put down roots and is committed to Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea for the long term. “That’s what I want. That’s what I want,” he said. “I didn’t say it at Inter because I didn’t want. I didn’t stay at Real because I didn’t want. “I want to stay here. I want to stay here. That is why I say I am in Mr Abamovich’s hands… he has no pressure. “He doesn’t need to give me a contract tomorrow. He doesn’t need to give me more money. “He doesn’t need to be worried that some club is knocking on my door. He doesn’t have to be worried with anything. It’s just him. “When he wants me, I am staying. When he doesn’t want me, I am going. So simple for him, so simple for me.” Mourinho still has two years left on his current deal and many expect that to be extended sooner or later. Certainly few could ever see the Portuguese managing another English side, although he admits there is likely to be another club job after finishing up with Chelsea. Press Association Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to create a dynasty at Stamford Bridge, but says it is unlikely to be his last job in club management. last_img read more

There is strong belief in the DC side: Ricky Ponting

first_imgSHERFANE Rutherford and Axar Patel shared a crucial unbeaten stand of 46 while the bowlers held their nerves as Delhi Capitals (DC) overcame Royal Challengers Bangalore to chart their way to the playoffs for the first time in the IPL since 2012.Ricky Ponting, the head coach, observed that there is a strong belief in the camp with DC now perched at the top of the points table with 16.After a string of poor performances over a period of time, DC tried to revamp the side with Shreyas Iyer being named the captain and Ponting taking over the coaching role. “We’ve probably done it the hard way tonight, but the boys are really starting to believe in themselves, they are trusting one another, and playing some good cricket. So all in all, we are pretty happy with where we’re at,” said Ponting on Sunday (April 29).“You want to be peaking at the right time, so for us to bounce back after a five-day break and win tonight was a really good thing,” he noted. “We go to Chennai now, which is a hard place for anybody to win, so that’s a great challenge for us. To the boys’ credit, we haven’t really talked about where we are on the table, just getting as well-prepared and planning as well as we can for the next challenge. So yeah, we’ve qualified, that’s really great, but two big games to go, and the target now will be to finish one or two.”Meanwhile, the loss ended the practicality around Bangalore’s progression to the next phase, although they are still in with an outside chance. The franchise had a poor start to the season but rebounded nicely, winning four out of five games only for their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs being engulfed in smoke after losing to Delhi.Virat Kohli, the Bangalore skipper, noted that they could have restricted Delhi to a score of around 160. He also pointed out that during crunch moments of the game, the home side played better. “Even after losing the toss, the way we bowled was really nice, we showed a lot of character. But then the game got away from us at the end a little bit. We were thinking 160-165, but 185-plus on that sort of a pitch with three spinners was always going to be tough. But we still showed a lot of character.“In the crunch moments, I think Delhi played better than us. That’s why they got the result they did. But yeah, with the bat we started off really well, PP [Parthiv Patel] was outstanding, then I got going, but then me and AB [de Villiers] getting out to balls that you don’t get out to… so, yeah, that’s how the game goes sometimes, and those little moments can be big at the end of the game.”(Cricbuzz)last_img read more
