Real Madrid keeping eye on Kane’s future after he admitted he could leave Spurs

first_imgREAL MADRID are reportedly keeping an eye on Harry Kane’s future ahead of the summer transfer window after the striker admitted he could leave Tottenham.The England captain set alarm bells ringing among fans when declaring he will not stay in North London for “the sake of it.”1 Real Madrid are thought to be keeping tabs on Harry KaneCredit: PA:Press AssociationZinedine Zidane is intent on signing a world class-striker after failing to replace Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo at the Bernabeu.The Frenchman’s current frontman Karim Benzema will be 33-years-old this year and Madrid are on the hunt for his successor.While £62million signing Luka Jovic is already rumoured to be on his way out of the club after failing to impress this season.According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Three Lions skipper Kane is among the options to lead the line for Los Blancos next term.But the 26-year-old’s future is still in Spurs’ hands after penning a bumper six-year contract in the summer of 2018.The club’s chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly slapped a £200m price tag on his talisman to ward off interested parties and will be loathed to lose a third player to Madrid following deals for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.A boost for Spurs is that the next transfer window will come amid football’s major readjustment due to the coronavirus, in a financial and potentially cultural sense.Large fees are thought to be incredibly unlikely even if top clubs can keep the economic damage to a minimum.Jose Mourinho’s side are eighth in the Premier League table, seven points adrift of a Champions League spot.And the fact that Kane is still yet to win a major trophy while spending his entire career with Tottenham could compel him to seek a move.Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticSpeaking last month, the striker declared: “I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs.“But I’ve always said, if I don’t feel we’re going in the right direction then I’m not someone who will just stay for the sake of it.“I’m an ambitious player, I want to become one of the best players.”Gary Lineker admits Harry Kane is right to think about his future at Tottenhamlast_img read more

Lupari calls for overhaul of the leadership of PNGFA

first_img“Since I have been involved in the soccer administration in the country over last 3 years, I saw soccer has a tremendous potential to advance but sadly this cannot be achieved because of the manner in which Soccer is administered by the PNGFA.The administration of soccer is serially monopolized; it is run by select group of individuals. Every aspects of the soccer administration is managed and controlled by few people. These people do not want to accept changes, and they do everything within their power to stop changes, said Lupari.I see the similar trend I saw in the administration of Rugby League in the past. Few people think that they own the Office, and become so territorial about it, and refuse to listen to changes and new initiatives. That almost killed rugby league in the country.I am seeing the same thing happening in the soccer in the country. I have come to love the sport, because it is universal, family based and skill full and beautiful to watch. It has huge potential in the country and it would be sad to see go this path.Since my appointment as Chairman of NSL, we have tried our best to further develop this semi-professional competition, but how hard we try it has been difficult. It has been extremely difficult to deal with the leadership of PNGFA.They simply don’t want to see NSL grow. That is really sad.NSL has to operate like business if it is to develop. That’s why when I was appointed Chairman of NSL; I overhauled the Board, and brought in people with corporate background and public administration. It has been a frustrating 3 years of the Board, because every change we proposed got knocked around.I have decided that I will not continue as Chairman of NSL if there is no change in the current leadership of the PNGFA.PNGFA need people with right attitude, visionary, smart and progressive thinking. More importantly, leaders who wish to work with all stakeholders including the Government. My Board’s achievements are clearly there for everyone to see.(a)  We have successfully renewed our major corporate sponsorship with PNG Telikom Limited;(b)  We have attracted other minor sponsors such as ExxonMobil and MRDC, and currently negotiating with another major corporate entity for 2016/2017 season;(c)  We have attracted the attention of the National Government, who have provided support to the NSL and soccer in general. The Govt has made available sporting facilities for NSL use, K20.0 million for the Under 20 FIFA World Cup, K2.0 million for our National Under 20 Team, and committed to provide annual grant to NSL for the next 3 years;(d)  We have successfully lured other provinces to field their franchise in the NSL competition. We have Eastern Highlands, Madang, Oro, West New Britain, and soon for 2016/2017 Gulf, Enga and Milne Bay provinces.(e)  We have also secured newly refurbished Sir Hubert Murray Stadium, when it is completed to be the “HOME OF NSL”.These are some of my Board’s achievements and there are many more which we would like to do for NSL and soccer development in the country. But sadly, the attitude of the leadership of PNGFA leaves us no choice but vacate from the Board of NSL.My message to everyone who love soccer is simple, if soccer is to progress, leadership in the PNGFA has to change Now. Otherwise, we are all wasting our time.”last_img read more

Morata, another injured: to attack with Carrasco-Camel

first_imgAtlético’s bad streak with injuries He has not taken a break in the derby. Yes first Herrera fell off the list for some inconvenience, in the 48th minute it was Morata who had to leave from the countryside for a physical issue. The striker was touched and He left his place to Lemar, that reappears after another injury. The attack became Vitolo-Correa; then Carrasco-Camel, With the Argentine on the right.

The goal in Atlético is a thing of Ángel Correa, leader and talisman

first_imgThe last goal before this Saturday, after staying zero against Leganés and Real Madrid, was Against Cultural: Correa also scored it. The previous one, after two other zeros in front of Eibar and Madrid (Super Cup), was 2-3 at Barça: Correa’s work again. Within the last ten of Atlético has also marked to the east, which was the first of 2020, and to Betis, Just entered the field. That afternoon gave him time to give an assistance to Morata. Also gave goal passes to Saul, against Osasuna, and to Koke, against Barça.Correa’s goals also have an added value for the team: in these five of the streak, the game was tied at the time of the goal. Against Barça he went 2-2 and in the rest of the cases, 0-0. The other target of the Argentine, who has been six in the course, was 1-1 at Espanyol, the first of that comeback (finished 3-1). So far in 2020, without going too far, Atlético has only three wins and in all of them it marked the 10 rojiblanco. Atlético starts in Oblak and, in the most recent stage, It ends in Correa. One does saving stops and the other, decisive goals. The Argentine has become leader of the attack when perhaps he was no longer expected, accustomed to a role of revulsive that had been working, although he was not satisfied. But now A red and white victory is not conceived without their participation. And almost not a goal, because of the last 10 of the team has scored half; and of those who have not, has given assistance in three. It is essential, now more than ever, and without Morata, Diego Costa and João Félix, he has thrown the team behind him.Against Granada, in a match where Atleti lacked lucidity, Correa appeared in the two plays of real danger of the team. In 6 ‘he scored 1-0 at Koke’s pass; in the second half, in a counter, he served as an assist to Saul, whose volley crashed into Aaron. And even almost provokes a Soldier penalty (for Iturralde, AS referee, Soto Grado had to whistle it). This time he had to start as striker with Vitolo, although then he placed himself on the right and had to do a dirtier job that led to him. Simeone extolled the player’s effort: “Beyond the goal, to play better or worse, it will never stop putting heart and we need that.” So they are six goals and as many assists for Angel, the most decisive player in the Atleti attack with Morata, who adds two passes to his ten goals. Without 9, Correa had to be the battering ram, a situation that is increasingly common. The Atleti returned to onecerism and, although Oblak does not yield its share of prominence, in attack he takes the gallons Correa.Correa is a talisman if he scores in the LeagueCorrea’s goals are often accompanied by good news for Atlético. As happened on Saturday against Granada, That mark the Argentine in League is synonymous with victory rojiblanca. He has marked 24 points in the competition in as many games and the team did not lose any: 20 wins and four draws. In Copa, for example, it was not like this: Correa scored in León, but Atlético ended up coming back and removed.last_img read more
