However, his contract was extended as the forward claimed he still has a lot to achieve with Hertha. He was suspended from the club’s training after he posted a video online in which he breaks social distancing rules. “Salomon Kalou has given the impression in his video that the Hertha BSC players do not take the social distancing and hygiene rules seriously on the part of the health authorities,” a statement on the club’s website read. “Hertha BSC would like to state that this was the failure of a single player. The fact that other team members did not draw his attention to this misconduct and instead replied to the greeting by shaking hands shows that the regular references to the distance and hygiene rules must be even more intense.” A member of Brazilian club’s executive Carlos Augusto Montenegro recently revealed that the Africa Cup of Nations is close to agreeing to a free transfer to Rio de Janeiro giants Botafogo. read also:Former Chelsea striker hails Osimhen as a model striker “He already has the pre-contract, but he asked for just one more detail in the contract that was sent to him,” Augusto Montenegro said on SporTV. “I think it’s okay.

At the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge, he joined French giants Lille on a free transfer after being released by the Blues. Kalou joined Hertha Berlin in 2014 on a three-year contract and was handed his favourite no. 8 jersey vacated by Marcel Ndjeng to SC Paderborn.center_img Loading… last_img read more

Moyes receives transfer backing

first_imgManchester United are prepared to back new manager David Moyes to the hilt in the summer transfer market and have not ruled out going after a “stellar player”. The club’s chief executive Ed Woodward insists the resources are there to recruit top-drawer talent and said they are “absolutely” able to compete for players in the £60million-£70million bracket. “We haven’t got money burning a hole in our pocket but we have got a strategy on player purchases and if David wants to go after a stellar player he can do that,” he said, in quotes carried by several of the national Sunday newspapers. United have been linked with Tottenham star Gareth Bale – a player that Moyes’ predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson tried to sign in 2007 before he joined Spurs – and there has also been speculation regarding a sensational bid to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo, who left United for Real Madrid in 2009 for a world-record £80million fee. The Red Devils’ pursuit of playmaker Thiago Alcantara appears likely to end in defeat, with the Barcelona man now looking set to link up again with his old boss Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich. United have also been strongly linked with Thiago’s club-mate Cesc Fabregas and may now look to step up their interest in the former Arsenal captain. “The way we worked with Alex was he would identify the transfer targets and take them to (joint chairman) Joel (Glazer) and (former chief executive) David (Gill), who would have discussions which ended with them backing him in the transfer market every single time and we see that continuing with David Moyes,” Woodward added. “We could have broken the transfer record in the past if we’d wanted to. Alex may not have got all the players he wanted but that was never down to not releasing funds. There’s never been a cut-off price.” United’s record signing remains the 2008 acquisition of striker Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham for £30.75million. Wayne Rooney was another player United brought in for big money, but they appear relaxed about the prospect of his contract running down as speculation continues over the England forward’s future. Moyes has been repeating his mantra about wanting Rooney to stay, albeit pointing out he will not let any player become bigger than the club. Woodward says United are not currently giving Rooney’s contract special attention, despite the risk of the 27-year-old’s value plummeting – or being wiped out – over the remaining two years of his contract. Speaking to reporters in Thailand prior to Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Singha All Stars, Woodward said: “There are no contract renewals that are being discussed. I am not sitting down with any player on an extension and there is no trigger date in the diary. Would we be afraid to run a contract down? Of course not.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bobs bounces back with Lexus win

first_img “I wanted to wait for the Argento Chase (at Cheltenham on January 25) but Barry was keen to come here. He believed he would get better ground here than anywhere in England. “If we waited for the Argento and it turned up heavy, we’d only have five or six weeks before Cheltenham. This was the right race for him but conditions weren’t perfect. “He picked himself up after a horror run and he put himself back at the front of the ball game. We know he loves Cheltenham, “He had a hard race there and whether he runs again or not (before the Gold Cup), I don’t know, but my gut says no. “We came here hoping he would respectably and to win is a bonus. After Haydock, it’s great to get him back.” Mouse Morris, trainer of First Lieutenant was satisfied with his charge, adding: “He probably wants a stiffer track but there’s no excuses.” His rider, David Casey, added: “He gave me a brilliant ride. He jumped like a buck and quickened well going to the last. “I thought I might have had it and the horse gave me everything, but the winner’s a good horse and we’re unlucky to have met him.” Winner of last season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup, Bobs Worth could finish only sixth behind Cue Card in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on his return last month, but he stepped up significantly on that effort to win the three-mile feature. First Lieutenant jumped the last in the lead but Bobs Worth (11-4 joint-favourite) found plenty for Barry Geraghty on the run in to win by a length and a half, with Rubi Ball back in third. Press Association Bobs Worth bounced back from a disappointing seasonal reappearance to land the Grade One Lexus Chase at Leopardstown. Ruby Walsh set out to make all on Rubi Ball with First Lieutenant, Bobs Worth and his fellow joint-favourite Sir Des Champs sitting on his heels through the early stages. With four fences to jump, there were a handful of contenders queuing up in behind to challenge Rubi Ball, with First Lieutenant putting in a couple of excellent leaps to put himself on terms with the leader. However, Geraghty switched Bobs Worth to the outside turning for home and he found plenty for pressure on the run to the last. He continued to dig deep all the way to the line and his triumph puts Bobs Worth right back into the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup reckoning. Betvictor and Paddy Power both now make him the 5-2 favourite to retain his title. Henderson said: “I would have given anything to take him out two days ago. With the ground and the weather, I wasn’t that happy with him, but the horse never stops surprising you. “You have to be handier round here than you would normally be. When I saw Barry angle him out, I said to myself obviously he thinks he’ll get there. We all know he finishes his races, except of course for Haydock. “It’s only five or six weeks since he got thumped into the ground there so to come back from that is great. last_img read more

GB let lead slip against Ireland

first_img But from that point GB lost the initiative and after Jackson’s penalty corner flick rebounded off the post, Kyle Good diverted in a cross from Mitch Darling. Ireland’s physicality threw their opponents off their stride and Jackson deservedly equalised in the 36th minute after continuing his run to the byline to volley home a loose ball. GB goalkeeper George Pinner was by far the busiest in the final two quarters, producing one brilliant save to tip a penalty corner onto the post before blocking the rebound and also palming over Conor Harte’s shot in the last minute. “It’s frustrating because in both games we’ve been ahead and they’ve come back and got draws,” said Middleton in his post-match interview. “We have a lot of games left to achieve what we want to do here. “We started well and when we went 2-0 up we just had to do a few more things a bit better. We weren’t quite as good as we can be.” GB face the tournament’s lowest-ranked side China on Thursday, while Ireland take on Malaysia in their second fixture. “Overall we’re happy with the result,” said Ireland coach Craig Fulton. “We were a bit nervous in the first quarter but settled in the second quarter and got on the scoreboard. “The second half was pleasing, we created some good phases of play which was more like us.” As in their opener against the host nation, GB let an advantage slip to leave them with two points from as many games in Antwerp, where the tournament is doubling as an Olympic qualifier. Captain Barry Middleton opened the scoring after just five minutes when his cross was deflected in by Ireland’s John Jackson before a cross-shot from Mark Gleghorn, facing brother Paul in the Irish team, was expertly deflected in by Chris Griffiths. Great Britain squandered an early two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Ireland at the World League Semi-final in Belgium. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bairstow and Moeen lift England to 414 for five

Badgers bounce back

first_imgWith senior floor captain Maria Carlini out for the weekend with a foot injury, the No. 14 Wisconsin volleyball team (14-4 Overall, 6-2 Big Ten) was still able to rebound from a pair of losses on the road last weekend and remain in the thick of the Big Ten race with victories over No. 9 Purdue (30-12, 30-20, 31-29) and Indiana (30-9, 30-17, 30-27).”I thought we picked up where we left off on Friday night just as far as our energy, and our quality of play and the high level,” head coach Pete Waite said. “It was a great team effort, a great team win and a great weekend.” With a season-high 7,064 in attendance on Sunday, the Badgers came out and were able to dominate the Hoosiers from the first serve. In game one, with Wisconsin leading 6-2, junior Amanda Berkley was able to put the game out of reach early with her serving as Wisconsin went on a 7-0 run to make the score 12-2.”[Berkley’s serve] doesn’t seem like anything fancy,” Waite said. “She just gets back deep and bombs it. If you are on the receiving end of one of those things, you don’t quite know where it’s going. It’s really hard for the opponent to get in a rhythm with the passers and the setters.”The Badgers were led by freshman outside hitter Brittney Dolgner with 15 kills. Taylor Reineke and Audra Jeffers also had double-digit kills with 12 and 11, respectively. Reineke lead the Badger blocker with eight rejections. “[Our blockers] did a nice job adjusting, especially today,” Waite said. “Our outside setup and our middles got some good hands on the ball. That just makes hitters doubt themselves when they see that wall up there in front of them.”The combination of the Badger’s blocking and defense, which was led by Jocelyn Wack with 18 digs, helped Wisconsin hold Indiana to a .036 hitting percentage.”Their top player, (Erica) Short, averages between four and five kills per game,” Waite said. “For her to hit negative and only have six kills says a lot for the block.”Against the higher-ranked Purdue team Friday night, UW was again able to come out and dominate in games one and two. “It was a great win for our program,” Waite said after the victory on Friday night. “After coming off the two losses on the road last week, the team really worked hard to improve themselves and that’s all we ever ask them to do.”The Badgers were able to outplay the Boilermakers in every aspect of the game — out-blocking, out-digging, out-hitting and out-serving them. “They didn’t bring their A-game,” Waite said. “I know they’ve had much better matches, but that’s the way it is in the Big Ten. You better bring your A-game because it is going to be tough out there every night.”Wisconsin, behind the serving of Berkley, was able to go on 9-0 run in game one and a 7-0 run in game two that put the games out of reach for Purdue.”Sports are great that way. You just never know when you’re going to be the one on the run,” Waite said. “Obviously so far in the last two weekends at home our team has played at a high level.”They have been very focused, very clean game. I think [our serving] put Purdue on its heels and [they] really didn’t quite know what hit them.”Game three was a much more closely fought match as the Badgers had to rally from being down game point at 29-27 to close the match out. Back-to-back kills by Jeffers tied the game at 29 apiece, and junior Megan Mills ended the game two points later with the Badgers’ sixth service ace of the game.”I thought our serve receive was really solid tonight and our serving was tough, and that’s really kept Purdue out of their offense,” Waite said. “For us to out-dig them 48-33, that’s a very good defensive team, so that says a lot for how hard our kids were working.”Even though the Badgers did out-dig the Boilermakers, Wack’s NCAA record for double-digit digs ended at 80 matches as she finished the night with only eight.With Carlini not playing Friday night, Waite turned to his freshmen to lead the team as Dolgner led all Badgers with 20 kills and a career-high five blocks. Caity DuPont, getting her first significant amount of playing time at home, had a career-high nine kills”The composure they showed was fantastic,” Waite said. “The passing gave Jackie (Simpson) a chance to move the offense around and give them an opportunity to swing at a good ball all the time. We couldn’t have asked for more.” With the pair of victories over the weekend, the Badgers showed the conference that they are still a force to be reckoned with.”I think it was [a statement],” Waite said. “It was a big confidence boost for our team. Going into it, they were all kind of wondering how it was going to go. I thought they played with a lot of confidence and maturity. “I think it is going around the rest of the league seeing how we beat Purdue in three and now Indiana today (in three), that we are here, and we’re back, and we are playing good ball.”last_img read more

New building fosters collaboration

first_imgVerna and Peter Dauterive Hall, USC’s first interdisciplinary social sciences building, opened for the first day of classes on Monday.Dauterive Hall, which was spearheaded by the Provosts’ office rather than an individual school, will have a special emphasis on collaboration and interdisciplinary studies.Working together · The $30 million building will house several research institutes and its entire lower level will be dedicated to research. — Christine Yoo | Daily Trojan“The donor, Verna Dauterive, had a vision for the building that it be a space activated with students, and focused on collaboration,” said Rob Cooper, vice provost for academic operations and strategy.Dauterive, an honorary USC Trustee, pledged $30 million for the six-story, 110,000-square-foot building in 2008, in memory of her late husband Peter Dauterive. Construction began in fall 2012, and the building was completed on-time and on-budget at the end of June 2014.Classrooms located on the ground level of the building will host undergraduate and graduate courses across a variety of subjects in the David and Dana Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the Marshall School of Business, the Gould School of Law and the Sol Price School of Public Policy, among others.The centerpiece of the building is a five-story atrium that will house several research institutes including the Center for Economic and Social Research, Center for Mind and Society, Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy and the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation.“We chose an architect that could help us create our vision of collaborative space and what it meant to researchers,” Cooper said. “The atrium building will allow collaboration to be based in the center of the [hall].”Provost Professor of Psychology and Marketing Norbert Schwarz and Dean’s Professor of Psychology Daphna Oyserman brought the USC Dornsife Mind and Society Center to the university from the University of Michigan last year. They look forward to utilizing the building.“The building has excellent research space,” Schwarz said. “The whole lower level is research space for interviews, laboratories and space for representative panels for surveys, so there’s great infrastructure.”Though much of the space will be used for research, undergraduate students are also looking to capitalize on the collaborative nature of the building.Dauterive Hall will also be looking to add more research institutes to the building. Only two of five atrium floors are currently occupied. Administrators and faculty look forward to using the remaining areas as a collaborative space.“Collaboration is always important, and is one of the hallmarks in what USC believes in for students, faculty and research centers,” said Bonnie Reiss, global director of the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.last_img read more
