first_imgGonzalo Higuain’s brother and agent insists he has not spoken to Liverpool and claims the Argentina striker is happy at Napoli. However, when asked about the Barclays Premier League club’s reported interest, Nicolas Higuain told Italian radio station Crc: “I don’t speak English only Italian, French and Spanish. “First of all, I have not spoken to any club because they have not contacted me and secondly, it would be disrespectful to Napoli. “(Napoli president Aurelio) De Laurentiis is a great person, a man of honour and I couldn’t behave incorrectly. “We’re not thinking about leaving Napoli. “I’m confident that the team can finish third (in Serie A to qualify for the Champions League), then we’ll see about Gonzalo’s future. “I haven’t spoken with any team. “Gonzalo is calm, he has a contract with Napoli and he’s not planning to leave because he’s happy.” Higuain, 27, joined Napoli in the summer of 2013 from Real Madrid and is under contract with the Naples outfit until June 2018. The South American was a member of Argentina’s squad that finished runners-up Germany at the World Cup last year in Brazil. Higuain has scored nine goals and set up three more in 18 league appearances for Napoli this season. The Argentina international has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield in the winter transfer market. The arrival of Italian forward Manolo Gabbiadini to Napoli from Sampdoria last week has increased speculation of Higuain’s possible departure. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgPatriots receiver Julian Edelman, the MVP of Super Bowl 53, offered to accompany Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson to the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center in Washington to help facilitate a “conversation” after Jackson posted false and anti-Semitic statements on social media earlier this week.Edelman, who says he did not “identify as Jewish until later in my life,” became aware, like many who follow football, of Jackson’s post to Instagram earlier in the week that included a quote falsely attributed to Adolph Hitler that presents a hate-filled view of Jews. Jackson later apologized for the post. Edelman said he did not want the conversation about anti-Semitism to distract from the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement. He said, “We need to have those uncomfortable conversations” about race and bigotry.Toward the end of the brief video, he proposed to Jackson that they visit together a couple of Washington’s most compelling institutions: the Holocaust Museum and the National Museum of African American History and Culture.“Afterwards, we can grab some burgers and have those uncomfortable conversations,” Edelman said. MORE: Stephen Jackson apologizes for “wrong words” in defense of DeSean JacksonEdelman said he’d been asked by many people for his thoughts about what Jackson posted and chose not to respond initially because he wanted to give the matter more consideration.“I know he said some ugly things, but I do see an opportunity for a conversation,” Edelman said. “I’m proud of my Jewish heritage, and for me it’s not just about religion. It’s about community and culture, as well.“It was only after I was part of this community that I learned how destructive hate is. Anti-Semitism is one of the oldest forms of hatred. It’s rooted in ignorance and fear.”last_img read more
