Loris Karius I was never told to leave by Liverpool

first_imgLoris Karius has denied he was ever told by Liverpool to leave this summerThe German goalkeeper ended a two-year stay at Anfield this summer for a move to Turkish giants Besiktas on loan after Liverpool signed Alisson Becker from AS Roma.The decision to sign the Brazil international came after Karius’ mistakes in Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in May’s Champions League final.“It was a super season with a very unfortunate end, but you must get over it,” Karius told Bild.“I knew that I must get up again and not hide and only concern myself with the past. It was a super team performance to just reach the final. Nobody can take that away from me. Not many German keepers can say they’ve played in a Champions League final.“A lot of things came together that day, and even though nobody wants to hear about it, you will never know how much my mistakes were connected to the injury which was diagnosed later. That’s no excuse — just an explanation.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.A possible explanation for Karius’ mistakes at Kiev could come through a concussion he suffered after Sergio Ramos’ elbow hit him.The Real Madrid captain never apologised to Karius afterwards and the German admitted he watched the footage several times for the next two weeks.“For one [or] two weeks, it was on my mind every day,” he said.“You sometimes don’t understand how a situation like that can happen,” he said. “I wanted to understand it better and that’s why I watched everything again that night and the following day.”Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp explained his reasons for parting with Karius were nothing personal.last_img read more

Steven Gerrard delighted with Allan McGregors second spell at Rangers

first_imgRangers manager might not have personally identified McGregor prior to his emergence as manager but he is happy to have endorsed the deal as McGregor has saved the club severally over the past five months.The Rangers shot-stopper was brilliant on Thursday in the Club’s Europa League tie against Villarreal on a night when his defence was shaky. McGregor twice denied Villareal’s Karl Toko Ekambi in one-to-one situations to secure a vital point for Rangers.Gerrard was quoted on Daily Mail: ”I can’t believe we got Allan for free. I think it was a stroke of genius from Mark Allen,”‘You need to take age and everything into consideration now but if you could knock a decade off Allan, he would be worth a hell of a lot of money.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“He could comfortably be part of most teams. To achieve in the biggest games in any league, you need a top goalie. That is the foundation you build on.””When I decided to take over, that’s an area I was keen to add to. Speaking to our recruitment team, when I knew McGregor was available and keen to come back – desperate to come back – it was a no-brainer for me.”On their upcoming fixtures, Gerrard continued:“When we came back from the international break, we saw this period right up to the Celtic game as a really tough period. But it is full of exciting games, games the players should enjoy and look forward to playing in.”‘The next two fixtures are big for us, six important points, but we need to focus on Hearts first. It would be nice to sit top after the weekend but we have to earn the right. You get nothing this early for it.”last_img read more

Solskjaer sure he would agree to stay as Man United boss

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer is “sure” he would stay on as Manchester United’s permanent manager if they asked him to at the end of the seasonThe Norwegian has taken charge of United for the remainder of their 2018/19 campaign following Jose Mourinho’s sacking this month.Victories over former club Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town have since followed ahead of United’s Premier League game against Bournemouth today.Despite Solskjaer’s actual employers Molde FK insisting they have only “lent” him, the ex-United striker wouldn’t say no to sticking around at Old Trafford.“My job is for the next five months, because I’m going to leave them to someone else when they come in,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.“That’s the plan and that’s what my job is at the moment, it runs out at the end of May – actually the end of June but we don’t play many games in June – so my job is to affect the players on what it is all about at Manchester United.“You’re always ambitious of course, but as I’ve told Ed [Woodward, United chief executive] and the owners, I’m here to do as well as I can and, if in May you decide someone else will be coming in, then fantastic, and if you decide it’s me, I’m sure we will agree.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Solskjaer scored 127 goals in 364 appearances for United over 11 years and has focused mostly on attacking play during his managerial career.But, with United having already conceded 31 league goals compared to leaders Liverpool’s eight, Solskjaer is aware of the importance of a solid defence.“I’ve been here for 15 years before and of course my football philosophy is driven by what I experienced here,” he said.“We do go and attack teams, try to dominate games and go into every game believing that we’re going to win, although we respect the opposition of course.“It’s not like we used to win 5-4 every time with the boss [Alex Ferguson]. When we had Jaap [Stam], Ronny [Johnsen], Rio [Ferdinand] and Vida [Nemanja Vidic] at the back, you knew that we could keep a clean sheet, so there is a fine balance there.“And I love seeing players express themselves. It probably comes down to that I experienced more in my football career than I ever believed, so I want other players to have the same feeling when they’ve finished their careers – that means we need to win.”last_img read more

Arizona wildfire near biggest in states history

first_imgLUNA, N.M. (AP) — An enormous wildfire in eastern Arizona is poised to become the largest in state history, as firefighters Tuesday tried to keep it from devouring a small New Mexico mountain town and authorities questioned two people about an abandoned campfire that may have started the blaze.Fires also grew elsewhere in New Mexico and at the state’s border with Colorado, where flames forced the closure of a busy interstate highway.Kelly Wood, a spokesman for the multiple agencies battling the massive Arizona fire, said late Tuesday that two people of interest were being questioned but he couldn’t provide any further details. The U.S. Forest Service might release more information about the investigation Wednesday, Wood said.In Luna, N.M., just across the Arizona state line, evacuation plans were in place for the roughly 200 residents. Crews have been working to protect the town for days, hacking down brush, using chain saws to cut trees and setting small fires to burn anything that the approaching flames could use as fuel.“That’s what’s saved the town,” fire incident command spokesman Sean Johnson said. “The line is holding.”Fires have devoured hundreds of square miles in the Southwest and Texas since the wildfire season began several weeks ago. Scant winter precipitation in Arizona, New Mexico, part of west Texas and southern Colorado is blamed on La Nina, a term describing cooler waters in the equatorial Pacific Ocean that keep the jet stream from dipping down and bringing storms to the region.last_img read more

Crews restored power to about half of those by 3 p.m., and the rest were taken care of just after 4 p.m., Erland said.Southwest Washington saw blustery conditions throughout the day Wednesday. At Vancouver’s Pearson Field, wind gusts often topped 30 mph, according to measurements reported by the National Weather Service in Portland.

Following his not guilty plea, Fortner winked at them as he was escorted out of the courtroom.

Fortner and Hensey picked up Moritz and Smith in a minivan and drove them to a parking lot in the same block.In the parking lot, a masked man emerged from the back of the minivan and held Moritz and Smith at gunpoint, the affidavit says.
