Ibrahimovic hints on Milan stay extension after 100 games

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted he could extend his stay at AC Milan after stating he ‘hopes to play lots more’ after making his 100th appearance for the club. The striker returned to the San Siro as a free agent in January until the end of the season after leaving LA Galaxy, but he has had clashes with chief executive Ivan Gazidis over the direction of the Serie A side. The 38-year-old has helped improve AC Milan’s form since football resumed and celebrated a century of games during the club’s 3-1 victory over Parma on Wednesday. The striker was awarded a jersey at the club’s training ground to mark the landmark and he made some revealing comments posted in a video on AC Milan’s Twitter page. He said: ‘Thank you all for your congratulatory messages for my 100th appearance in Rossoneri colours. ‘It’s a great honour to play for AC Milan and I hope to play many more games.’ He also joked to his team-mates: ‘Thank you to my teammates I couldn’t have done it without you all. Thankfully I have no competition.’Advertisement FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The Swedish striker’s future at the club looked to be in the air after an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, in which he said it was unlikely he will remain at AC Milan next season unless there are significant changes at the club. He told the Italian newspaper: ‘Ibra was born to play football and is still the best at playing football. We’ll see how I feel in two months. We’ll also see what’s happening with the club. If this is the situation, to be honest, it’s unlikely you’ll see me at Milan next season. ‘Ibra is not a player for the Europa League and Milan are not a club who belong in the Europa League.’ Paolo Maldini, whose own future as technical director is up in the air, was full of praise for the striker as he handed over a commemorative medal. Read AlsoIbrahimovic admits he’s likely to leave AC Milan ‘You’ve played for several teams. However, I noticed you had made more than 100 appearances for only three of them – Ajax, Inter and PSG. ‘Therefore, this is a great and important milestone for you to have reached.

The 61-year-old Sarri is targeting the first league title in his 30-year coaching career and with his team also attempting to overhaul a 1-0 first-leg deficit to French club Lyon in the Champions League last 16, he insists he wants to continue in the Turin hot seat next season. “I have a contract and I want to honour it at all costs,” said Sarri. “At Chelsea there was a different situation, I liked the idea of going to England. Then last summer I wanted to come back to Italy. “But the future is tomorrow and we have to think about every single game. All the rest comes as a result.” Lazio, meanwhile, are chasing a third Scudetto in the club’s history and first since 2000. “I certainly had imagined it differently,” said coach Simone Inzaghi, whose side had been on a 21-match unbeaten league run before the three-month virus break. Read Also: Solskjaer takes blame for team selection in Chelsea defeat “Unfortunately we had problems after the championship was suspended, but we’re going to have a great game without making any excuses and thinking about injury absences. “We still have something to achieve in qualification for the Champions League, a goal that has been there and that has been missing for 13 years.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img “In a single game everything can change, so the difficulty of this game speaks for itself,” warned Sarri. “Lazio have had a great season, they have proven to be a great team even if they are going through a difficult period. “This is a team we have always struggled against.” Maurizio Sarri insisted he had no fear of Lazio nor his future as Juventus coach as he prepared his team for Monday’s crunch Serie A clash against a team his side have lost to twice this season. “Have you ever asked a Formula One driver are you afraid of speed? It’s part of the job,” said Sarri on Sunday. “Everything goes well if you win and bad if you lose, but there’s no need to be afraid, this Juventus is a team which is used to fighting. “I’m happier feeling someone breathing down my neck.” Reigning champions Juventus have seen a dip in form since the coronavirus lockdown, and are on a three-game winless run, picking up just two points and conceding nine goals in matches against AC Milan, Atalanta and Sassuolo. The league leaders hold a six-point cushion on second-placed Inter Milan, who can cut the gap when they play Roma later on Sunday. “We came up against teams in great shape, it is a strange time we’re playing in which is unique in the history of football,” said Sarri. Lazio had been just a point behind Juventus before the lockdown but are now eight points adrift, having lost four of seven games since the league returned to action last month. Lazio beat Juventus 3-1 twice in December – in the reverse Serie A fixture in Rome and the Italian Super Cup final.last_img read more

Man City closing on Messi deal but Barca trying to negotiate £250m agreement

first_imgManchester City are understood to be closing in on a deal for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi – but the Spanish giants are holding out for a huge £250million compromise. Argentine forward Messi rocked Catalonia by announcing he intends to leave the Nou Camp this summer. And after much speculation about where he may be heading, it looks as though he is set to reunite with Pep Guardiola. The Sunday Mirror report that both Barcelona and City believe Messi is leaning towards a move to the Etihad Stadium. It’s thought that the Blaugrana skipper is keen to play under Guardiola again, which means a highly anticipated switch to the Premier League. However, in order to allow a move to go ahead, it’s claimed that Barcelona are looking to drive a hard bargain. As well as at least £120m in cash, Barca also want to steal some of City’s biggest stars. New Nou Camp boss Ronald Koeman could welcome both Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva to his new look first team, as well as young Spanish defender Eric Garcia. Meanwhile, Guardiola could offer up a host of other names including: John Stones, Benjamin Mendy, Joao Cancelo and Angelino.

Joshua to face Pulev on Dec 12, Fury vs Wilder holds a week later

first_imgAnthony Joshua will reportedly fight Kubrat Pulev on December 12 with Tyson Fury having his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder the following weekend. According to UK Sun, that would set up an all-British undisputed heavyweight scrap between the pair – provided they come through their respective title defences. Back at the start of coronavirus lockdown, Fury announced that he had agreed two fights against WBA, WBC and IBF champ Joshua for 2021. But the nitty-gritty of finances and dates are still a long way from being sorted. Bulgarian veteran Kubrat Pulev is next up for Anthony Joshua According to Boxing Scene, the two Brits could get their mandatories out of the way before this year is out, clearing the path for their moutwatering scrap. Matchroom boss and AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed the December 12 date at the o2 Arena, adding that he was keeping everything crossed that some fans would be allowed in. And Pulev’s co-promoter John Wirt of Epic Sports added: “We are happy that the fight appears to be back on track and that we have a new date and site. “There is still some tweaking to do on the contract but we are optimistic it should be concluded this week.” And with talkSPORT reporting that Fury vs Wilder III should follow on December 19, boxing fans can look forward to the prospect of the all-British showdown for next year. Appearing on BT Sport as a special studio guest at the weekend for Daniel Dubois’ easy win against Ricardo Snijders, Fury is desperate for the fight. He said: “If Wilder doesn’t happen, let’s do Joshua in December. Let’s get it on. I’m ready to go now, I’d have fought him in that ring tonight. “I’d still kick his a***, any time of the day. Hopefully they grow a pair and want to fight the Gypsy King. “If I was in their position, I’d have had my chance at glory to go to America and fight Wilder. “But they didn’t take it and I had to come out of retirement, set about him a couple of times – take the No1 spot, take all the glory. “He must be sitting down thinking ‘that could have been me’. But it wasn’t. It’s their own fault.

Rust makes momentum work for Marshalltown Hawkeye Dirt Tour win

first_imgMARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (June 7) – After he went back to what he knew, Joel Rust went back to victory lane following a second straight Hawkeye Dirt Tour feature.Rust became a rare repeat winner in the series for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, following up his Memorial Day victory at Benton County Speedway with the $1,000 checkers Tuesday night at Marshalltown Speedway.He became just the second driver in the series’ 63-race history to win back-to-back features and accomplished the feat at his home track by less than a car length over Brian Irvine.“We had run ninth in the weekly show Friday at Marshalltown. It wasn’t what we wanted but we tried some things in preparation for Tuesday,” explained Rust, who took Saturday and Sunday off. “Sometimes you do that and you find something. We didn’t.”Irvine started inside Rust on the second row and led the first eight laps. Rust was scored first the last 22 times around the track but there was no giving up from Irvine, who pulled ahead on the white flag circuit.“The track was a little different with the (Deery Series) Late Models there. I knew the track would slick off but it was still very racy,” Rust said. “Marshalltown is kind of a momentum track and the middle is the better place to run the car.”“I knew Brian was there and he was trying to run the bottom,” continued Rust. “The last lap, I went a little lower than I had been into (turn) one and I think it kind of hurt me. He had a good run in two. I ran the middle of three and four and was able to race out of four with a little more speed.”Defending series champion Kyle Brown, Jacob Murray and ‘B” feature qualifier Richie Gustin rounded out the top five.Brown had started 10th, Murray 12th and Gustin way back in 22nd.The only other driver to win back-to-back Dirt Tour events is Jay Noteboom, who did so at Farley and Marshalltown in September of 2012.
