first_img The Chelsea manager and the Frenchman endured a difficult relationship during the Mourinho’s first stint at Stamford Bridge, when he infamously called his Gunners counterpart “a voyeur” for commenting on his rivals. However, Mourinho told how a series of chance meetings at several football tournaments following his 2007 Chelsea departure led the two men to form an unlikely friendship. Jose Mourinho has revealed his new-found respect for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. “I started meeting him in UEFA, at the Euros (European Championships), the World Cup, we had dinner and so on,” the Portuguese said in several newspapers. “And when you are not in the same league and when you are not playing against each other, it is easier to know people, it is easier to go deeper. It is easy to speak about football, he’s a very nice guy. “I respect him a lot and I will show my respect always. (In) football sometimes even if you are friends and respect each other, you say something the other doesn’t like and you react. “But at the end of the day I respect him a lot and I have the feeling that he is the same in relation to me. I wouldn’t bet on one single problem between us.” Mourinho also claimed he never doubted the intentions of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. The pair parted ways by mutual consent in September 2007, with Mourinho leaving the club as its most successful manager with six trophies in three years. However, the self-titled ‘Special One’ returned to the Blues this summer after spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid, and hailed the Russian’s foresight. “There was always the question, ‘When is he going to sell it?’ ‘Is he in love with the club?’ ‘Is he in love with football?’ ‘Is he doing this for the right reasons?'” Mourinho said. “Peter Kenyon (then chief executive) and I were worried about just creating the right conditions and having a good base. Roman was always going for more, always going for the future. He said, ‘If we can build 15 pitches here, why build only four?’ “We said: ‘Because four is what we need now – two for the first team, one for the reserves and one for the youth’. He said: ‘No, no, if we can build 14 or 15, then do it for the future, for the kids. The thing is not just to have the reserves and the first team here, it’s to have all the teams here. Why train at Brentford if we can have everybody here? So the academy has the same conditions as the first team’.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgFollow Nick on Twitter @NickSelbe Following USC’s 14-10 loss to Notre Dame, interim head coach Ed Orgeron focused on the positives from the game, most notably his players’ effort, rather than the negatives. Orgeron has his team’s sights set on shoring up its self-inflicted mistakes as it prepares to play Utah on Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.Injury woes · Redshirt junior tight ends Randall Telfer (above) and Xavier Grimble were both ruled out for Saturday’s game against Utah. Their absence leaves USC with only one healthy scholarship tight end available. – Ralf Cheung | Daily Trojan“There were a lot of positives to come out of the game,” Orgeron said. “Guys fought really hard to give us a chance to win. Obviously, we have to eliminate the penalties that really put us back in some bad situations, especially towards the end of the game.”Open AuditionsJunior kicker Andre Heidari continued to struggle against Notre Dame, missing twice in three attempts. For the season, Heidari is 6-for-11 in field goal attempts and just 2-for-7 in kicks 30 yards or longer. Because of his ineffectiveness, Orgeron has decided to open the kicking competition this week in practice.“We need to make field goals,” Orgeron said. “We’re gonna open up the field goal kicking competition this week to see who’s the best one out there. Andre has done a lot of good things for us, but we’ll give somebody else a shot this week in practice.”In 2011, Heidari was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award for the nation’s best kicker and was named first-team All-Pac-12 after making 15-of-17 field goal attempts. Last season, he dealt with injuries and made just 10-of-16 field goal attempts, but still made the 2012 All-Pac-12 honorable mention list.Tough Up FrontThe Trojans’ much-maligned offensive line played well at the onset of Saturday’s game, but wilted in the second half. Notre Dame’s top two defensive tackles, Louis Nix III and Stephon Tuitt, eventually wore down USC’s offensive line and made it difficult to open up running lanes.“We struggled a little bit in the second half, especially in some crucial situations,” Orgeron said. “Tuitt is a really good player and he gave us some fits. We thought that we played pretty good against Nix inside, but in some crucial times, their defensive lines made some plays.”USC finished the game with 129 rushing yards on 31 carries, good for 4.2 yards per carry. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Cody Kessler was sacked twice, and Notre Dame finished with seven tackles for loss.Injuries MountingAs if USC’s injury woes couldn’t get any worse, Orgeron had more bad news about his team’s health. Redshirt junior tight ends Randall Telfer and Xavier Grimble were ruled out for Saturday’s game, as well as freshman tailback Justin Davis.“Randall and Xavier are gonna be out, I don’t know how long, but they’re not gonna be playing this week,” Orgeron said. “Davis will be out, and Marqise is questionable again. We have a lot of guys questionable.”Gaining ConfidenceLost in the team’s overall poor play has been Kessler’s steady improvement throughout the season. Since taking over as the team’s full-time starter, Kessler has completed 61 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. This has led to a renewed sense of confidence in the Trojans’ signal caller.“I really like the way Cody’s playing,” Orgeron said. “He’s making plays, running the ball, making good decisions. He had that one interception [against Notre Dame], he’s had one turnover in two games. He’s really becoming a leader and has a lot of gumption. He has a lot of guys believing in him.”Tough ChallengeLooking ahead to Utah, Orgeron noted the team’s strong performance in big games. The Utes notched their biggest win since joining the Pac-12 two weeks ago when they defeated Stanford 27-21. Utah has given USC fits each of the last two seasons, with the Trojans’ two wins coming by an average of just 9.5 points.USC’s offensive line will likely be tested yet again against a very stout Utah front seven.“[Utah is] a powerful team,” Orgeron said. “Good on the lines, very big offensive line, great running game. They gave Stanford problems, obviously. Their defense leads the Pac-12 in sacks. They get up for big games, and we know they’ll get up for us.”For the Trojans, the focus is on regrouping after a tough loss and getting a much-needed conference victory to jump back into the race for the Pac-12 South crown.“Here’s the deal: We told our guys this is game three of our new season. Utah is ahead, now we’re just gonna take it one game at a time. Be positive. Bounce back. Rely on the team — one heartbeat. Continue to move forward and fix the things that we did wrong.”last_img read more

first_img FOLLOW US READ | Was A Mistake, Hoping For Light Punishment: Shooter Ravi Kumar On Doping ViolationSun’s CAS hearing, the first in 20 years that was open to the public, was beset by technical difficulties and interpreting errors between Chinese and English which frustrated lawyers and held up proceedings. CAS said the private translation service was provided by Sun’s camp and agreed by both parties, adding that it couldn’t hire its own interpreters for reasons of “independence and neutrality”. Swimming body FINA confirmed in January that Sun had used a hammer to smash a vial containing his own blood sample during the testing session, but acquitted him of anti-doping violations, agreeing that testers had failed to produce adequate identification. But the ruling outraged the World Anti-Doping Agency which took the matter to CAS, demanding a ban of between two and eight years for missing the out-of-competition test. After being cleared by FINA Sun was able to compete in the World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea, in July, where he won two golds but became a focus of protests from rivals.READ | Captain Woods Sends Himself Out In 1st Presidents Cup MatchREAD | NBA Trade Rumours: Kevin Love On Verge Of Leaving Cleveland Cavaliers For Boston Celtics SUBSCRIBE TO US Chinese Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang’s anti-doping case, in which he is facing an eight-year ban for missing a drug test, won’t be settled before mid-January because of translation problems, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said.

first_imgThe fifth inning brought up a two-out, none-on situation, and Matt Kemp blasted an 88 mph pitch into the left-field gap and against the wall. He scored when Yangervis Solarte hit a wicked single down down the left-field line.That preceded another episode of Yasiel Puig Live (YPL), in which the rightfielder admired Alex Dickerson’s savage liner until it sailed over his head. Puig followed it up with one of his throws to nowhere, and the Dodgers trailed 6-0 when manager Dave Roberts brought the hook for Ryu.“His velocity started dropping right there, but I think it was just fatigue,” Roberts said of Ryu. “We’d hoped for more and better from him, but to see him out there was great. We’ll know more when he comes out of this, and then the day after that.” Ryu had thrown 4 2/3 innings and 89 pitches, few of which fooled the opposition.Roberts called it “a victory in itself,” and Ellis also preferred the long view.“We’re excited to see what he did today, but also the rest of the year,” Ellis said. “He came out firing, and it was great to see. He had a good heater and showed it from the get-go. Regardless of the outcome, it was so much fun to see him out there. The fastball and changeup were very similar to what he was, or what it is.”“But to expect him to come out and do what McCarthy did, that’s a high expectation,” Roberts warned.It was, but the Dodgers brought it on themselves, using Ryu the night after their nine-pitcher, 14-inning nightmare against Baltimore Wednesday. Roberts confronted this game with only three position players on his bench.Put it this way: This was not July 31, come early. The Dodgers were hoping Ryu’s return would be like a bountiful trade in which they gave up nothing. Instead, Ryu became the ninth Dodger pitcher to start a game in a 14-day span.Ryu’s exile has been an underrated problem for L.A. He had given the Dodgers two solid years, with 41 quality starts in 56 games and a 17-8 road record. In that last game, Ryu left Game 3 in St. Louis tied after six innings, 1-1, before Dodger bullpen follies took over.“He proved he was a big-game pitcher, a No. 2 or No. 3 starter,” Ellis said. “We’ve missed him. But suddenly we have a lot of guys coming back to our rotation who are savvy guys. They can add quality depth.”Not to plow up old ground, but the Dodgers knew for at least a year that Zack Greinke’s departure was a possibility. They did not land Cole Hamels, with his ridiculously favorable contract and his devastating changeup, from Philadelphia and they let Johnny Cueto take a direct free-agent flight to San Francisco, where he might well win the Cy Young Award.The real July 31 trade deadline still looms. But any Dodgers improvement will require something more than free. LOS ANGELES >> A.J. Ellis said the mere sight of Hyun-jin Ryu was a pick-me-up bouquet for all the Dodgers Thursday night.Sullen fans at Dodger Stadium were more concerned with the sound.Ryu’s first game since the 2014 Divisional Playoff might have been an inspiration, but it was also a 6-0 loss to San Diego,It was diffcult to anticipate that the left-hander would be wild-card ready. He was coming off labrum surgery … but Dodgers fans had swallowed a dose of hope on Sunday when Brandon McCarthy had thrown six two-hit innings in his first post-rehab start. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img If Ryu could pitch just as strongly and if Clayton Kershaw could overcome his back problems and if Brett Anderson could return and if Kenta Maeda and Scott Kazmir could keep hanging on, maybe the Dodgers could patch together a rotation that could hold off the Mets, Cardinals, Mattinglys and Pirates …Warning: Never trust a paragraph with so many “ifs” and “coulds.”Ryu’s first pitch to Melvin Upton Jr. was an 89-mph ball. His sixth pitch was 92 mph coming in and 102 mph going out, a home run into the right-center pavilion, and a 1-0 lead for San Diego.The second inning was slower and more painful for Ryu. He walked catcher Derek Norris because he couldn’t place his fastball, and he gave up a base hit to Alexi Ramirez. With two outs he allowed pitcher Drew Pomeranz to send a grass-riding single through the middle.The fourth inning featured a 3-0 count to Norris and an eventual base hit, and Norris went to second on Corey Seager’s imprecise throw. Then Ramirez whaled a double off a 91-mph fastball, and the Padres led 3-0 after four innings.last_img read more
