Violence mars Greek Cup final after turbulent season

‘A shame Wayne Rooney has stayed on the pitch though!’ – Manchester United fans react to Memphis Depay being dropped

first_img1 Memphis Depay Despite coming with a big reputation, Memphis Depay has hardly set the Premier League alight this season.He has only managed one goal and has been widely criticised for a perceived lack of effort.He was also part of the Netherlands side who embarrassingly missed out on qualifying for Euro 2016 next summer.And now it appears Louis van Gaal has finally lost patience with the winger, having dropped him for the trip to Goodison Park to face Everton.But what do Manchester United fans make of the manager’s decision? See below for the best reactions on social media …Manchester United XI to face Everton: De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, Mata, Herrera, Rooney, Martial.last_img

Arsenal news: Nacho Monreal rejects rumours of possible return to Spain

first_img1 Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal with team-mate and fellow Spaniard Santi Cazorla Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has played down talk of a move away from the club.The 29-year-old has 18 months to run on his current contract and has been linked with a return to Spain, with recent reports suggesting the Gunners had rejected an approach from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.However, Monreal has denied such speculation and instead revealed that he is loving life at the Emirates.“Everything feels right,” Monreal told the Arsenal Weekly podcast.“I can say that I feel at home on and off the pitch. If you don’t feel good off the pitch and in life in general, obviously you can’t give 100 per cent.“However, at the moment, I love England, I love London and I love my team-mates so everything is positive.”last_img read more

Cut-price deals? 12 quality players with just a year left on their contract

first_img 12 Xabi Alonso is out of contract in 2017 – Alonso is 34, but he’s good enough – and cool enough – to slot into most sides. Elsewhere in Bayern, full-back Rafinha and forwards Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben all have a year left to run on their contracts. Saido Berahino has a year left on his West Brom contract and could cost £15m – Tottenham had four bids rejected for Berahino last year and this season it seems Stoke are the ones leading the chase to sign the 22-year-old striker. The price has dropped from the £25m mark Tottenham were reportedly prepared to offer, but West Brom may still ask for close to £15m. 12 12 Nathan Redmond’s contract at Norwich has a year left – Relegated Norwich could cash in on the 22-year-old winger and West Ham and Stoke are both interested. 12 Having looked at players who are available for free in the summer when their current contracts expire, talkSPORT looks at those whose deals run out in 2017.It could mean clubs are able to land decent players in cut price deals, with chairmen willing to cash in rather than see their stars leave for nothing.Tottenham appear to have used Victor Wanyama’s situation at Southampton to their advantage as he is on the verge of joining for £11m. This could have been higher, but the midfielder’s current deal runs out in 2017.Click the arrow above, right, to see more players about to enter the final year of their contracts. 12 12 Liverpool to land Mario Gotze on the cheap due to contract situation? – After the Euros, the midfielder’s future will be sorted as his current deal at Bayern runs out in 2017. Gotze says he wants to play for Carlo Ancelotti, so is he using reported interest from Liverpool in order to earn himself a new contract in Germany? 12 12 12 Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s Borussia Dortmund contract runs out in 2017 – The player’s agent says Mkhitaryan wants to leave this summer, with Man United thought to be the preferred destination. Dortmund, though, are reportedly willing to let his contract run its course. Graziano Pelle’s Southampton contract expires in 2017 and could be bought on the cheap – click the arrow above, right, to see more players whose current deals expire next year – New Everton manager Ronald Koeman has been linked with the 30-year-old striker and Southampton are likely to cash in on the player rather than lose him for free next year. Stephan Lichtsteiner’s current Juventus deal runs out in 2017 – Lichtsteiner is a much admired player and one of Juventus’ most consistent performers. If the right-back wants to leave – possibly for Chelsea as has been suggested – his club would surely cash in on the 32-year-old… Sandro Ramirez to leave Barcelona this summer? – Barca’s 20-year-old is reluctant to extend his contract, which expires in 2017. The player wants regular first team football and Tottenham, Everton, Crystal Palace and Swansea are the Premier League teams interested. Santi Cazorla: Arsenal favourite has a year left on his contract – Cazorla has suffered with injury this season, but the 31-year-old is still one of the Premier League’s better players. 12 12 Paddy McNair: Man United youngster has a year left on contract – The 21-year-old Northern Ireland stopper, who has also played in midfield, said he is hoping to impress new manager Jose Mourinho during Euro 2016. And presumably any other boss if Mourinho doesn’t fancy him… Joe Allen’s Liverpool contract runs out next year – Allen is wanted by Swansea, who sold him to Liverpool for £15m in 2012. The Reds have reportedly rejected an £8m offer for the midfielder currently impressing for Wales at Euro 2016. 12 AC Milan winger Jeremy Menez to leave before end of contract – Menez’s agent said the player is leaving the club in the summer where they will assess any offers. After scoring 16 Serie A goals and creating four in the 2014/15 season, the 29-year-old’s recent campaign has been far from ideal due to injuries. last_img read more

Rosa gets another tour with Ice Dogs

first_imgOver the course of the Ice Dogs’ up-and-down season, coach Malcolm Cameron has searched for ways to pull his team out of mediocrity. His answer might have arrived. More of an offensive player, or at least two-way player, Rosa spent most of his ice time with the Admirals, an affiliate of the Nashville Predators, as a third-or fourth-line checker who saw spot duty all too often, which certainly didn’t help his numbers. Also, he spent about as many games as a healthy scratch as he did with a regular shift, and his contributions were nil on special teams. All of which added up to a drop in confidence. “I’m grateful for the experience but it was frustrating at the same time,” said Rosa. He would love to go back up at some point, but he’s in no hurry. “My goal is to move up, but I’m not worried about that right now,” he said. “What I am worrying about is getting my game back to where it was. I don’t think I’m at where I was last season.” Cameron, who has had his eye on Rosa all year, is glad to have him back, and he will play Rosa on one of the top scoring lines as well as on the power play and penalty kill. ICE DOGS NOTES: Cameron gave Greg Hewitt a well-deserved and much-need break, putting the tired and battered goalie on the seven-day IR. Hewitt has played in 26 of 31 games, including 14 of the last 16. Rookie Jaroslav Halak will start tonight’s game, and Olivier Michaud, coming off a leg injury, will start Saturday against Idaho (19-9-2). Whoever plays best will start Sunday’s game against Utah (19-11-2). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Cameron welcomed back ECHL Rookie of the Year runner-up Marco Rosa at practice Thursday morning after his three-month stay with the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL). The center is expected to play tonight against visiting Bakersfield (11-10-4). While it will certainly be a bonus to have a player like him back in the lineup, both Cameron and Rosa dismissed any notion that Rosa would come in and become some sort of savior. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson “One player doesn’t make a team. You saw that last year with the NHL guys,” said Cameron, noting how NHL players in the league last season weren’t exactly stars but how they made their teams that much stronger. “He’s just one more piece to the puzzle. I do know we are a better hockey club than we were yesterday.” And Rosa isn’t expecting to make an immediate difference right away, especially after a relatively lackluster stay in Milwaukee, where he scored just two goals and added two assists in 27 games. While he has mixed emotions about dropping back down to the ECHL, he is happy to be back with the Ice Dogs (14-14-3) and to have the chance to regain the form that made him an All-Star and one of the league’s top rookies last season. “It’s going to take some time,” said Rosa, who had 34 goals and 31 assists in 72 games last year in his first pro season out of Merrimack College. “I just want to get better and help the team.” While he feels it was a positive to spend three months in the AHL, it didn’t come without the negatives. last_img read more
