Bees boss praises referee after win

first_imgBrentford boss Mark Warburton praised referee Graham Salisbury for refusing to be swayed by an intimidating home crowd in the 1-0 win at Leeds United.The Bees moved up to fourth in the Championship table courtesy of Alex Pritchard’s second-half strike.But the hosts had a couple of noisy penalty appeals rejected before Warburton’s side went ahead.AdChoices广告“The referee came under enormous pressure from the crowd,” Warburton said. “But if you look back at the game without any sound they were not penalties.“It was a very good three points. In the first half we were off the pace and didn’t get close enough to the opposition, but we stepped it up in the second and created a lot of chances.”Brentford are now five points clear of Norwich, who are one place outside the play-off places.Warburton added: “People say we are direct and hard-working but we are better than that.“As long as we are little old Brentford, that works for us.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Manchester United ‘always’ after South American, have already made contact over…

first_imgGazzetta dello Sport have a big splash in their Saturday edition, and it’s reported there’s a real belief at Juventus that signing the Manchester United midfielder is possible this summer.Pogba is said to have a great relationship with the squad at the Turin club, something evidenced by him attending their title winning party earlier this year.On top of that, it’s claimed the Frenchman wants to leave Old Trafford. He’d already felt that way under Jose Mourinho, but when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over those feelings faded.However, finishing sixth sees the club miss out on Champions League football, and that’s encouraged Pogba to look elsewhere… and Gazzetta say he believes Juve would be a good opportunity.Mino Raiola has good contacts at the Serie A side, and it’s thought a transfer would cost more than €100m.Juve would look to include players, with it being claimed Manchester United are ‘always’ keen on Dybala, and have made contact to probe the ground.He’s the player who United ‘like most’ at Juve, with Alex Sandro and Douglas Costa inevitably named as other options.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

Victor Osimhen “Says Yes” To Napoli, Set To Sign On Thursday – Reports

first_imgVictor Osimhen could be unveiled as a Napoli player by Thursday, 16 July after Napoli and Lille reached a firm agreement on a transfer for the player in a deal valued at 60m euros.According to Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio, Osimhen has said “yes” to the move and Napoli will pay 50m euros upfront and 10m euros in add-ons with the Nigerian ready to append his signature to a deal until 2025.However, the respected journalist say an agreement is yet to be reached with Napoli on a suitable commission for Osimhen’s new agents with that being the only sticking point in the deal. A meeting between Napoli and Osimhen last month in Naples to discuss personal terms ended without any agreements and the player returned to France.Amid reports that the Nigerian wasn’t keen on the move and would prefer a move to England where Premier League champions Liverpool are noted admirers, Napoli reportedly issued the striker a ten-day ultimatum to decide on making the move to Italy.It now appears that the 21-year-old has agreed to the move and has appointed new representatives to make the deal happen.Victor Osimhen is now one step away from joining Napoli. Personal terms agreed – he’s ready to sign until June 2025. Napoli are now working to complete last details with Lille and his agents then the deal will be finally completed. 🔵 @SkySport #transfers #Napoli #Lille— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 14, 2020According to di Marzio, another meeting between Napoli and Osimhen’s new agent held recently in Sardinia “away from prying eyes” and “everyone’s will is to close [the transfer] if possible by Thursday” provided that the “last obstacle represented by the commission of the new agent” is resolved.Osimhen is one of the most sought after strikers in Europe following an exceptional debut season for Lille.The 21-year-old who joined the Great Danes from Sporting Charleroi last summer scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 and added five more in Cup competitions to finish as Les Dogues’ top scorer with 18 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions. He also weighed in with six assists.He was recognised as Lille’s standout performer in the just concluded season and was voted the club’s Player of the Season.Osimhen’s outstanding performances also saw him awarded the Marc Vivien Foe award for the best African player in the French topflight – becoming the youngest winner of the award.The striker who dedicated his award to his father who passed away recently has been linked with a host of clubs including Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Napoli.But it appears Gennaro Gattuso is desperate to land the goal machine and has moved heaven and earth to ensure Napoli beat the competition to secure the signature of the prized asset.If the move to Italy materialises, it would mark a third club move in as many years for the peripatetic Osimhen following stints at Sporting Charleroi and Lille in the last two seasons.RelatedTransfers: Victor Osimhen Nears Napoli SwitchJuly 1, 2020In “Featured”Breaking: Osimhen To Be Unveiled By Napoli On Tuesday – ReportsJuly 27, 2020In “Featured”Reports: Osimhen To Napoli Off After Transfer Talks FailJuly 2, 2020In “France”last_img read more

Yawkey Way outside Fenway Park changed over racist past

first_imgIn this June 22, 2017, file photo, retired Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is honored with the renaming of a portion of Yawkey Way to David Ortiz Drive outside Fenway Park in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File) BOSTON (AP) — Boston officials Thursday approved changing the name of Yawkey Way, the street outside Fenway Park, because of allegations former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey was a racist who resisted hiring Black ballplayers in the 1940s and ’50s.The city’s Public Improvement Commission unanimously approved a proposal by current Red Sox ownership to call the stretch of road Jersey Street, which it was originally named before being changed in 1977 to honor Yawkey the year after he died.The vote drew immediate condemnation from the Yawkey Foundations, the charity named for Yawkey and his wife, Jean.“As we have said throughout this process, the effort to expunge Tom Yawkey’s name has been based on a false narrative about his life and his historic 43-year ownership of the Red Sox,” the organization said.“The drastic step of renaming the street, now officially sanctioned by the city of Boston (and contradicting the honor the city bestowed upon Tom Yawkey over 40 years ago), will unfortunately give lasting credence to that narrative and unfairly tarnish his name.”The Red Sox filed a petition with the commission in February and said that restoring the Jersey Street name is intended to reinforce that Fenway Park is “inclusive and welcoming to all.”Principal owner John Henry told the Boston Herald last year that “I am still haunted by what went on here a long time before we arrived.”Yawkey owned the Red Sox from 1933 until 1976. The Red Sox were the last Major League Baseball franchise to field a black player, when infielder Pumpsie Green was called up in 1959, 12 years after Jackie Robinson played for the Dodgers.The Yawkey Foundations acknowledged that in its statement, but said the good it has done far outweighs the negative, including the more than $300 million the foundation has provided to organizations throughout the city.“We have always acknowledged that it is regrettable that the Red Sox were the last Major League baseball team to integrate,” the statement said.The Public Improvement Commission noted that other businesses on the street had unanimously approved of the name change.Democratic Mayor Marty Walsh did not say whether he agreed with the change, but noted that the change alone would not address the problem of racism.“I know a lot of people are talking about ‘this is going to help us end racism,’?” Walsh said. “This is not the answer to that.”It was not clear when the street signs would be changed.The city renamed a stretch of the road David Ortiz Drive last summer in honor of the retired Red Sox designated hitter.last_img read more
