Rangers could get the green light to sign Tottenham man

first_imgQPR could soon be given the green light to sign Jake Livermore on loan.Tottenham are likely to sanction the deal if they can complete the capture of Schalke’s Lewis Holtby in the coming days.The north London club recently agreed a deal to sign Holtby this summer but are trying to bring the move forward because of an injury to Sandro.Redknapp believed he had signed M’Vila.Spurs agreed to loan Livermore, 23, to Rangers before Sandro suffered knee ligament damage during the derby between the two sides at Loftus Road.Livermore’s move was therefore put on hold and QPR have been pursuing other targets but have been told they may be given the opportunity to take him if Tottenham are able to bring in another midfielder.Wilson Palacios is also on Rangers’ radar, although Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has suggested he is not interested in signing the Stoke man, who played under him at Spurs.Redknapp was dealt a blow on Wednesday when it was announced that France international Yann M’Vila has signed for Russian club Rubin Kazan.Rangers had agreed terms for the 22-year-old to join them, but Redknapp warned after Saturday’s game against West Ham: “You need to get deals done. The longer it goes on the more people get involved and people see his name in the papers.”By Monday the club believed M’Vila’s future would be resolved within 48 hours and remained optimistic they would get their man, but in the end they missed out.Meanwhile, QPR have received an approach from Turkish club Bursaspor for Anton Ferdinand but are reluctant to let him leave until they bring in at least one centre-back.Click here for today’s QPR quizSee also:Redknapp confirms interest in Spurs manRangers on the verge of a deal to sign M’VilaRedknapp unsure over deal for Spurs manQPR ‘still working’ on M’Vila dealQPR look to tie up M’Vila 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

While she can walk almost normally on her prosthetic legs, she competes in a wheelchair.“I found hospital to be a waste of time,” she said. In under four months she was back at school, and entered her first parafencing competition just a year after falling ill.She puts her return to “normality” down not just to tenacity but also two decisive encounters, with South African paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius and Italian paracyclist Alessandro Zanardi.“They both said the same thing: ‘You’re an amputee, don’t let it stop you. Get moving and do what you want to do’,” she said.“I met them thanks to my parents, and now I tell myself I’m the one that has to be an example to others”.Already a household name in Italy, Vio’s popularity soared after Rio, where she was the flag-bearer for the Italian delegation at the Paralympic Games’ closing ceremony.Invited on an official Italy-US visit to the White House last year, she snapped a cheeky selfie with Barack Obama.She puts her fame to good use, supporting the art4sport association — which helps young disabled people play sport — and campaigning in favour of vaccines, a hot-button issue in Italy.“I’m fighting for everyone, children and adults, to be vaccinated. It’s an easy thing to do and can avoid a lot of ball-ache,” she quips.

Several months of intensive rehabilitation in hospital followed, during which Vio learned to walk again using prosthetic limbs designed specifically for her.The youngster had first wielded a sabre and donned a mesh mask when she was five years old.“After a difficult time, it was my dream of fencing again that helped shorten my hospital stay,” she said.“I also had the support of my father, who worked with a specialised orthopaedic centre to develop the prostheses with which I was rebuilt — a bit like a lego,” she joked.‘Get moving’ADVERTISEMENT MOST READlast_img read more

Approximately 2500 students attend Ohio State football Student Appreciation Day

Approximately 2,500 students showed up to the practice.Credit: Desiaire Rickman / Lantern photographerWhen 2,500 students are on the playing field, it usually means something big has happened for the Ohio State football team.While the Buckeyes did not pull an upset win or beat a highly ranked team, the intrasquad practice drew a large crowd for the team’s third annual Student Appreciation Day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.The event, started by OSU football coach Urban Meyer in spring 2012, is aimed at getting students involved in the program — as with some of the approximately 2,500 who attended were invited to join the players in their stretching lines prior to practice.Students not only stretched with the team — some even attempted field goals as their peers surrounded the play. Adam Watson, a first-year in biomedical science and Block “O” football director, said plenty of planning went into the event from the student side.“We worked a lot with the football operations director for athletics Fernando Lovo,” Watson said. “We got to come into a practice and talk to a few guys to see what they wanted.”The Block “O” student section tossed T-shirts to the crowd and featured some students with body paint, much like one would see at a game in Ohio Stadium.“Ultimately, we just want to get overall involvement,” Watson said.The finalists in the fastest student competition took their places following practice to compete and see who will race sophomore running back Dontre Wilson and senior wide receiver Devin Smith during halftime of the Spring Game scheduled for April 12. Among the winning finalists were fourth-year in sports industry Mesiah Smith, who was a member of Ohio State’s club football team in 2013.Redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett said he appreciated the students coming out to support the football program.“I can honestly say there are very few programs out there that do something like this,” Vannett said. “I think it is good that we have such a good fanbase. I think it is good for the students and for the players. Getting to meet all of the students that support us and I just think all around it is a good event.”One OSU player in particular made his presence felt during his team’s practice, as redshirt-sophomore cornerback Eli Apple intercepted redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett twice. His performance merited the black stripe on his helmet to be removed, fully initiating him as a Buckeye.“He played good,” Vannett said of Apple. “I saw that one hit he had on Jeff Greene and after that, pretty much sealed the deal for his black stripe coming off.”Apple was not the only player who had a big day, as redshirt-freshman tight end Marcus Baugh caught a pair of touchdown passes from Barrett. Baugh said after the practice he is feeling much more comfortable with the offense.“I just try to go out there and go hard … That is what I did on those plays, and J.T. put the ball on the spot,” Baugh said.With senior tight end Jeff Heuerman out for the remainder of spring practice after having surgery on his foot, Baugh said he has the opportunity to work on his game a little more.“It is definitely helping me work on my blocking,” Baugh said of getting more playing time. “With him being out, coach is really giving me a lot of reps on the harder blocks that last year I wasn’t too good at.”After the spring game, the Buckeyes are slated to begin their 2014 campaign Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Mbappe can win 5 Ballon dOrs in 10 years says Buffon

first_imgBuffon spoke about all the young talent on PSG, saying he’s surprised Neymar hasn’t won the Ballon d’Or, and that the Brazilian, along with Mbappe, must make the difference for the Parisian club.Gianluigi Buffon talked to RMC in France and praised the young blood on Paris Saint-Germain, saying he believes Kylian Mbappe and Neymar deserve the Ballon d’Or. He said the French youngster has the potential to win a handful of those awards if he makes “that psychological switch in his head.”“In my view, if Kylian decides in his mind to become the Number One for the next 10 years, he can do that, but it depends on his mind,” Buffon said, according to Football-Italia.“He has to make that psychological switch in his head to say, right, I’m going to go and win five Ballon d’Ors in the next 10 years.“If Paris Saint-Germain wants to win, then Mbappe and Neymar must inevitably become the players who make the difference. In my view, we must put them in the psychological and physical condition to give their best, which the way I do it is to motivate them.Colin Dagba, France,How Dagba become one of PSG’s regulars Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 21-year-old full-back Colin Dagba had a very difficult time to break into professional football, but now he’s one of PSG’s regular players.“I find it incredible that Ney hasn’t won the Ballon d’Or yet and I tell him that every day. Your objectives, with your immense talent, must be to win the Ballon d’Or three times in six years – three for Kylian, three for Ney.“If I had their talent and had never won the Ballon d’Or, I’d be furious!”Gianluigi BuffonPARIS, FRANCE – NOVEMBER 28: Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain and Gianluigi Buffon of Paris Saint-Germain celebrate victory following the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool at Parc des Princes on November 28, 2018 in Paris, France. (Photo by Clive Rose/Getty Images)Buffon has played with Marco Verratti for Italy and is now his teammate at PSG, but the midfielder has yet to deliver quality football for the club.“Marco is another player who in terms of talent is comparable to Mbappe and Neymar. He is growing now, but he had to make the final step up in mentality, in his desire to win,” continued Buffon.“It’s great to enjoy ourselves playing important games, but after a while, I want to win those games, not just take part in them, and that is a completely different mindset.”last_img read more

Higginbotham reveals why Pogba Rashford are excelling at Man Utd

first_imgFormer Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham gave his verdict on Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford’s strong form.Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as an interim coach at United, Pogba has managed six goals and five assists in nine appearances and produced another brilliant display to assist Rashford for the match-winner against Leicester City on Sunday.Meanwhile, Rashford himself has found the net six times since Solskjaer moved him into his preferred centre-forward role.“They’ve got their best players playing in their best positions and it’s proving hugely successful for them,” Higginbotham told Sky Sports.“Obviously, there are still question marks over the defensive side of the team, but they are scoring so many goals.“You’ve got Marcus Rashford playing in his favourite position through the middle and he is going from strength to strength. The run he is on at the moment is unbelievable.“And then there’s Paul Pogba. He’s now looking like the player that is one of the best midfielders in the world and he’s been given the freedom to go and express himself.”Nine wins and a draw have enabled United to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and close the gap to the top-four in the Premier League table to just two points under Solskjaer.Higginbotham added: “You’ve got to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unbelievable credit. “Everything he touches turns to gold.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I’ve heard a number of people saying anybody could have gone in and done that. No, they couldn’t, I’m sorry but they couldn’t. It doesn’t work like that.“What he’s done is he’s gone in there and looked at the team. What you see with the top managers and we see it all around world football, play your best players in their best positions and build a team around them in order to get the best out of them.”As for whether the Red Devils can snatch a top-four spot, Higginbotham said: “I think so and that’s something we wouldn’t have said a couple of months ago.“You have to give Solskjaer great credit because United are now playing to their strengths.”Rashford was named United’s Player of the Month for his strong performances in January.Horn Hill ➡️ Castle Black ➡️ The Citadel ➡️ Winterfell ➡️ Manchester 🏆Thanks for coming all this way to present @MarcusRashford with his #MUFC POTM award, @JohnBradleyWest! 😁 pic.twitter.com/mWz6Uovznh— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 7, 2019last_img read more
