Moses agrees personal terms with Inter Milan

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Inter Milan is reportedly nearing the loan signing of Victor Moses after he agreed personal terms with Antonio Conte’s side. Conte, who is in search of wing-backs after being unimpressed with Valentino Lazaro and Cristiano Biraghi, is looking to reunite with Moses having coached the 29-year-old at Chelsea between 2016-18. And according to Sky Italia, Moses has agreed personal terms with the Serie A outfit with him ready to leave Fenerbahce – where he is currently playing on loan from Chelsea. Inter – who sit second in the Italian top flight behind Juventus – have put in a loan offer with an option to buy from Chelsea. And Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed on Monday afternoon that Moses is set to come back to west London in order to move elsewhere. Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League encounter with London rivals Arsenal, Lampard admitted: “On Moses, he is coming back with a view to going somewhere else. Talks are ongoing.” Moses is looking for a fresh opportunity away from Fenerbahce, where he has only played seven times in all competitions since joining on loan in January last year. Moses won the Premier League under Conte at Chelsea in 2017, while also lifting the FA Cup just a year later. The wing-back played an integral role under the Italian manager, featuring 34 times for Chelsea during their triumphant 2016-17 Premier League campaign.Tags: Antonio ConteCristiano BiraghiInter MilanSerie AValentino LazaroVictor Moseslast_img read more

Magpies safe as Rangers lose again

first_img Press Association Newcastle ensured Premier League survival with a game to spare as a 2-1 win saw already-relegated QPR go down with a whimper at Loftus Road. Hatem Ben Arfa’s penalty and a Yoan Gouffran strike helped the Magpies come from behind to secure a victory that ensured another season in the top flight despite the late sending-off of goalkeeper Rob Elliott. It had not always looked so plain sailing, though, with Loic Remy’s early spot-kick putting Harry Redknapp’s side ahead and ending a 376-minute wait for a goal. center_img QPR edged a poor opening that only came into life in the 11th minute when Mathieu Debuchy gave away a penalty as referee Lee Probert adjudged him to have fouled Junior Hoilett. Yohan Cabaye was booked for his remonstrations but they counted for nothing, with former Newcastle target Remy slotting home. Ben Arfa burst into the box and Jose Bosingwa foolishly tugged the Newcastle man’s shirt in clear view of Probert. Another spot-kick was awarded and the France international stepped up to smash home, with the ball going in off the underside of the bar. It took just seven minutes for the Magpies to draw level and it appeared they had turned the match on its head by the 22nd minute. Debuchy swung in an exquisite right-wing cross that was nodded home at the far post by Papiss Cisse, only for the goal to be chalked off after the Senegalese striker drifted offside. Hoilett forced Elliott into a fine reaction save when QPR returned to the attack but, like so many times this season, poor-decision making cost them dearly. Bosingwa’s popularity plummeted to a new low after sending a weak back-pass to Rob Green and, under pressure from Jonas Gutierrez, the Rs goalkeeper could only clear as far as the unmarked Gouffran, who cushioned a volley into the empty goal. Newcastle were living dangerously with a one-goal lead – something that looked even more tentative eight minutes from time when they were reduced to 10 men. Goalkeeper Elliott handled the ball outside the box and was shown his second yellow of the afternoon, with Steve Harper replacing Ben Arfa for the closing stages. last_img read more

Associated Press All tennis events sanctioned by the ATP, WTA and International Tennis Federation are on hold at least until late July because of the coronavirus pandemic.But the WTT is not affiliated with those tours and does not need to abide by their decisions about when it is OK to compete. No ATP or WTA ranking points are available for its matches.The WTT says it is increasing its prize money to $5 million. That is $1.5 million more than for its 2019 season.The league is bringing all nine of its teams to one site at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, because of the pandemic instead of having matches around the United States.___ The Giants echoed those sentiments and said: “With today’s announcement by the governor, we are finalizing our plans to reopen the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. We will continue to have as many employees as possible working remotely. For employees who need to return to work at our facility, we expect to begin that process next week, and we will do so in a systematic and safe way that adheres to the state’s guidelines and NFL protocols.”___Formula One carmaker McLaren says 1,200 jobs will be lost across its entire group’s operations because of the coronavirus outbreak.It was not immediately clear how the cuts would affect the group’s F1 operation. The sport has yet to start its 2020 season amid the pandemic.The McLaren Group says “the cancellation of motorsport events, the suspension of manufacturing and retail activities around the world and reduced demand for technology solutions have all led to a sudden impact” on its revenue-generating activities. The event was scheduled for Aug. 26-29 in Richmond, British Columbia. It is the second competition of the seven-part series that has been canceled, with the Slovakia event the following week also not taking place.“Skate Canada has closely monitored the provincial and federal health authorities position on the COVID-19 pandemic and is committed to the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and spectators,” the organization said Tuesday. “Due to the provincial quarantine guidelines for all travelers and social distancing requirements in effect at this time, Skate Canada regretfully made the decision to cancel the event.”No decisions have been made on the other competitions, nor on the senior Grand Prix events.___ The Ukrainian Premier League says it has received approval from the country’s health ministry to restart.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is expected to announce the league’s return to play format this afternoon.Bettman is set to make a televised address at 4:30 p.m. EDT about what hockey will look like if the NHL can resume the season this summer. That means a 24-team straight-to-playoffs format with the league’s other seven teams having their seasons ended.The Players’ Association voted last week to approve the 24-team format proposed by the Return to Play committee. It involves the top four teams in each conference playing a mini-tournament for seeding, while the other 16 face off in best-of-five series to set the field.There is still no timetable for the resumption of game action or when players can return to team facilities for voluntary workouts. This announcement does come on the heels of the league and NHLPA unveiling protocols for those workouts, including a limit of six players on the ice at a time.___ May 26, 2020 The Latest: Ukraine’s soccer league set to resume Saturday Conferences and television networks have agreed to an extension to next week’s deadline for determining the broadcast schedule for college football’s early season games.The Football Bowl Subdivision conferences issued a joint statement Tuesday along with ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox Sports and their affiliated networks.

Phil Murphy tweeted Tuesday that as long as the NFL’s Giants and Jets and the NHL’s Devils follow health and medical protocols, they could open training camps or even hold competition. The NFL’s preseason and training camps wouldn’t begin until midsummer — teams are doing virtual workouts in place of the usual on-field activities because of the coronavirus pandemic. But the NHL is planning ways to complete the 2019-20 season. Should those plans include the Devils, they now can reopen their training facilities.“Professional sports teams in NJ may return to training and even competition — if their leagues choose to move in that direction,” Murphy wrote on Twitter. “We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel.”A Jets spokesman said: “We are working closely with Gov. Murphy’s office, the league and our medical staff to establish prudent, health and safety measures for our staff and players. Based on those guidelines, we will begin to open our facility using a phased approach at a time that is the most practical for our operations.” McLaren says the reduced budget-cap level for F1 teams also led to the job losses.The cuts represent about a quarter of the group’s workforce.McLaren executive chairman Paul Walsh says “we plan to emerge as an efficient, sustainable business with a clear course for returning to growth.”___World TeamTennis says it is planning to allow up to 500 spectators at outdoor matches during its three-week season from July 12 to Aug. 2 at a resort in West Virginia.

UW keeps 1-0 mentality

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoOne of the more difficult jobs of any head coach is to help the team put the previous game’s result behind them and prepare for the next opponent, especially after a loss. Bret Bielema has now experienced his first loss as UW’s head football coach and must decide what steps to take to pick his team up after the defeat. “The biggest thing that you have to do as a head coach is understand exactly where you’re at and where you think you can be at the end of the week and give [the team] that plan,” Bielema said at his press conference Monday. “I took our nine team goals that [the team] voted on before the season and did a quick review of where we’re at and what’s left in front of us.”The top goal on the list was keeping the 1-0 mentality, the idea of focusing on one game at a time instead of the season-long picture. “[Next Saturday], they have an opportunity to go 1-0 again,” he said. “I don’t see our guys getting off that track at all.”Offensive Struggles: The Badgers were beaten on both sides of the ball against Michigan, as well as on special teams. Perhaps most glaring were offensive struggles as the Badgers punted on eight straight possessions beginning late in the second quarter, including six straight three-and-outs. The most productive drive that the Badgers could manage in the third quarter was a three-play, 2:49 drive which gained a mere four yards. Many of these possessions to start the second half began with little or no gain on first down, leading to second-and-long situations. “We have to put ourselves in a position to have success,” Bielema said. “As we develop as a team, you have to understand what players you are going to be able to rely on to give you that first-down play. It’s been seen that P.J. (Hill) can run the ball on first down, but on the same account he hasn’t been 100 percent on his reads. If you throw on first down, you’ve got to have pretty good confidence, if you’re going to call something that’s going to be there, that you want that ball to be caught as well.”The lack of production by Badger wide receivers is also notable. Of the 22 receptions against Michigan, only eight were completed to wide receivers, while running back P.J. Hill and tight end Travis Beckum recorded five each. While some may see this as a cause for concern, Bielema is encouraged by the stats. “Some things got spread around, and I’m excited,” he said. “It was a growing experience for our guys to get to where they are right now. Even in [Sunday] night’s practice, I noticed just a little bit more increase of an intensity to get the timing of everything down between the quarterbacks and receivers.”Hoeppner returns to sidelines:Next Saturday, Wisconsin travels to Indiana and Hoosiers head coach Terry Hoeppner is expected to be on the sidelines for the first time since his surgery to remove a brain tumor Sept. 13. While Indiana’s Memorial Stadium won’t be as hostile as the atmosphere at Michigan’s “Big House,” both Hoosier fans and players will have a little extra incentive as they welcome Hoeppner back, and Bielema expects Indiana to come out with more emotion than normal. “I learned very early on in my career that it’s not guaranteed that [the players] respect you just because the word ‘Coach’ is printed on your shirt or your coat; it’s how you handle them and how you react to things that go well, as well as things they don’t do well,” Bielema said. “My guess is they’re going to be able to put a four-quarter game in because of the respect they have for Coach Hoeppner.”last_img read more
