Botafogo offer Mikel N347m 18-month deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Global COVID-19 cases surpass 27m – Johns Hopkins Everton sign Brazil midfielder from Napoli Reinier completes Dortmund loan switch Former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi, may join Brazilian Serie A club, Botafogo, on an 18-month deal. Botafogo continue to push for the signing of the former Chelsea midfielder, who was released by his former employer, Trabzonspor, following an outburst on the social media from the Nigerian over the safety of players. Mikel left Trabzonspor by mutual consent, days after expressing his concerns about the Turkish Super Liga continuing amid the global coronavirus pandemic. It now looks like the 32-year-old’s search for a new club won’t take long after ESPN journalist, Jorge Nicola, has said that Botafogo have offered Mikel an 18-month deal that would see him earn $2 million (N347 million) over the duration of the contract. The new deal, should it go through, will see the former Chelsea player earns more than the $1.6 million he received at Trabzonspor.

Sessegnon set to learn fate

first_img The player was astonished to be dismissed and manager Paolo Di Canio signalled the club’s intention to appeal within minutes of the final whistle. Sunderland formally lodged their claim on Tuesday and can expect a decision on Wednesday. Should they fail to have Mr Probert’s ruling overturned, Sessegnon will miss the remaining three games of the season, home clashes with Stoke and Southampton and a final day trip to Tottenham. That would prove a massive blow to the Black Cats, who have been plunged right back into the relegation mire as a result of their black night in the Midlands. Sessegnon has been in sparkling form under new boss Di Canio, scoring the first goal in their 3-0 derby win at Newcastle and then firing his side to victory over Everton six days later to send them clear of the relegation zone. Despite their humiliation at Villa, Sunderland, like Paul Lambert’s men and the Magpies, remain five points better off than 18th-placed Wigan, although the Latics have a game in hand. A three-game ban would deprive Di Canio of one of the men most likely to drag the club out of trouble with leading scorer Steven Fletcher already ruled out of the remainder of the campaign after undergoing ankle surgery. That would heap even more pressure on £5million January signing Danny Graham, who is yet to open his account in a red and white shirt after 10 appearances. Sessegnon’s red card was the second of his career on Wearside, the first coming in a 1-1 league draw at Newcastle in March last year. On that occasion, he was sent of for raising his hands to Magpies midfielder Cheick Tiote, whose theatrical collapse did him no favours, although the African left referee Mike Dean with little option but to dispatch him. The 28-year-old Benin international’s claim for unfair dismissal over his sending-off at Aston Villa on Monday evening is scheduled to be heard this afternoon by an independent regulatory commission. Referee Lee Probert issued a straight red card for Sessegnon’s second-half challenge on Yacouba Sylla as the Black Cats slipped to a disastrous 6-1 Barclays Premier League defeat. Sunderland striker Stephane Sessegnon will discover whether or not his season is over on Wednesday. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse tries to overcome inefficient shooting struggles for Penn State matchup

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse has had no problem this season getting shots off. Unfortunately for it, a high shot total hasn’t necessarily translated to wins.“Of course, all that matters is the score,” head coach Paul Flanagan said. “But when you’ve outshot a team … it’s pretty frustrating to go on and lose.”Syracuse (6-12-8, 4-4-4 College Hockey America) has outshot its opponents 756-671 this season, but has been outscored 80-52. The Orange will look to convert those shots into goals against Penn State (13-10-3, 7-4-1 CHA) Friday and Saturday in University Park, Pennsylvania at 7 p.m. and 2 p.m., respectively. In its six games since returning from a month-long break, the team has outshot opponents four times without registering a win. In fact, the Orange was outscored 10-6 in those four games. “It’s definitely frustrating,” freshman forward Stephanie Grossi said. “You work hard to work on your shot and capitalize on your opportunities and it’s just not coming.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFlanagan believes that opponent goalie play hasn’t been the sole reason for the shot-goal disparity, and that his team needs to take initiative in taking better shots. “We’ve got to be a little more selective maybe with some of our shots. Our MO on many nights is to just put a lot of pucks on net and just get in and get rebounds,” Flanagan said. “I think we’re not getting the results we’re looking for because we’re not getting good looks and then not getting to enough rebounds.”Flanagan stressed the importance of getting secondary shots. The team has no problem getting initial shots from the perimeter, but hasn’t been able to follow up on misses in front of the net. The opponents’ goaltenders have been making some good first saves, but Flanagan said the Orange isn’t doing enough of getting into the “dirty areas” in front of the net. Once the team is able to get traffic in front of the net, the goals will follow.“We’re missing out on a lot of shots where we’ll take a shot and there’s a rebound we’re not jumping on,” defender Nicole Renault said. “Those are the shots we’ll get, not the pretty shots from the top of the circles that are going to go right in.”The team has been working in practice on scoring off initial offensive zone entries. In game action, if that doesn’t work, SU tries to cycle the puck among players and get open on the wings.Renault said that the team has been focusing on crashing the net on missed shots, no matter the drill. If someone shoots on net, everyone participating in the drill goes for the rebound, regardless of who shot the puck.It’s been a point of emphasis to improve its even-strength attack as well, as SU has only four even strength goals in the six games since semester break.“Don’t be satisfied with taking a shot on net and getting off the ice with a line change,” Flanagan said. “We’ve got to do a better job and taking some pride in wanting to score goals.” Comments Published on January 29, 2015 at 12:03 am Contact Liam: lpsull01@syr.edulast_img read more

Trojans prepare to kick off Pac-12 competition

first_imgThe Trojans face two highly ranked teams from the north this weekend when they play host to Cal and Stanford, respectively. The action gets underway Friday at 1:30 p.m. when the No. 2-ranked Trojans face the No. 13 Bears at Marks Stadium, with the second game against the      No. 18-ranked Cardinal on Saturday.Rock-solid start · Sophomore Yannick Hanfmann (above) and the USC men’s tennis team have yet to lose a game this season as they make a run at a fifth straight national championship trophy. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanCal is 3-0 this season in Intercollegiate Tennis Association play and is led by senior Christoffer Konigsfeldt, ranked No. 42 in singles. Konigsfeldt missed Cal’s previous 5-2 victory over Pacific last weekend as he represented his native Denmark in the Davis Cup. Freshman Mads Engsted, ranked No. 93 in singles, might see a familiar foe in Trojan sophomore Roberto Quiroz. Engsted and Quiroz met in the Sherwood Collegiate Cup earlier this year, and the match went the full three sets — including a tiebreak — with Quiroz emerging victorious, 5-7, 6-2, 7-6(4).The team is aware that a keener focus is necessary when facing conference opponents such as Cal and Stanford. USC head coach Peter Smith emphasized the importance of strong preparation in facing Pac-12 teams.“It’s time to get it going,” Smith said. “We had three matches over the weekend, and the goal was to get seven matches in before we play a top-20 team.”Despite having played a multitude of matches including two doubleheaders, the Trojans haven’t faced much adversity on the road to Pac-12 play. In four of their seven matches, the Trojans didn’t drop a single match. When asked how he felt about the team’s preparation in spite of the seeming lack of a visible challenge, Smith insisted that he felt the team was “very prepared.”“We’re right there; we’re right where we want to be,” Smith said.In contrast to the Trojans, the Cardinal have faced plenty of adversity to open the season, dropping matches to No. 26 Texas A&M and TCU at home. The Stanford men’s tennis team is 3-2 on the season and the schedule only gets progressively tougher for them entering the National Team Indoor Intercollegiate championships, with a match against No. 3 UCLA on Friday before facing No. 2 USC on Saturday.The Cardinal are led by sophomore John Morrissey, ranked No. 39 in the nation. It was Trojan sophomore Eric Johnson who knocked out Morrissey at the Sherwood Collegiate Cup with a 6-3, 6-3 victory in the second round. The results earlier this year might give the Trojans confidence in their game plan, but the team remains on guard.“Cal and Stanford are obviously two very good teams,” sophomore Jonny Wang said. “You can never take anything for granted. The Pac-12 is one of, if not the strongest conference in the nation. Having so many ranked teams means any match between these teams are going to be tightly contested.”Junior Ray Sarmiento will return to the lineup after playing only one leg of the two matches last Sunday. Sarmiento felt that the team didn’t need to do anything differently to prepare for its opponents.“We’re just going to keep working hard and get our bodies ready,” Sarmiento said.Sarmiento has played out of his usual No. 1 position at times this season with junior Emilio Gomez filling in aptly in his stead. When asked if he would retake his No. 1 position with the beginning of           Pac-12 play, Sarmiento was gracious in his response.“It doesn’t matter, I mean, we’re all playing well,” Sarmiento said, citing Gomez’s success in particular.Gomez picked up Pac-12 player of the week honors for his play at the No. 1 spot last week. This week, the honor went to another Trojan, freshman Max de Vroome.De Vroome secured five straight doubles wins with partner Quiroz and five straight set match victories last week, including the thrilling clincher against No. 16 Texas, which saw de Vroome fight back from behind in both sets to win the match in tiebreaks.last_img read more

Women of Troy hit the road for two tough games

first_imgIt’s been smooth sailing for the USC women’s water polo team for the last couple of weeks, but the squad will face two big challenges this week as it looks to stay undefeated against No. 11 Loyola Marymount (15-7) today and No. 7 UC Irvine (15-7) on Saturday.The Women of Troy have faced big challenges this year in the form of grueling doubleheaders and highly ranked opponents, but this two-game set at the end of the week presents a different kind of challenge.“With two games so close together, we get one less morning workout,” USC head coach Jovan Vavic said. “With less hours in the water, it changes how much you can do for preparation.”Though the team will have its endurance tested, there is no reason to believe the lack of rest will slow down the USC offensive attack. The Women of Troy have failed to score 10 goals in a game only twice this season, and in each of those games they scored nine.Though sophomore driver Monica Vavic is the undisputed scoring leader with 54 goals, this is an offense that features all types of weapons and one that can score in many different ways. Whether they cut past defenders to find an open position to shoot or use the entire shot clock while passing the ball around the perimeter, this USC offense can adapt to situations and exploit any defense they encounter. This can be seen in the team’s gaudy goal differential in third quarters this season, as USC has outscored opponents 84-19 immediately after halftime.“We’re very balanced offensively,” Jovan Vavic said. “All of our players can do more than one thing. To put it in basketball terms, we have players like Magic Johnson or LeBron James: they are very good both at outside shooting and driving the ball.”Against the Lions of LMU, the Women of Troy will have to be at the top of their offensive game, as LMU has won its last six games, giving up a stingy average of only 4.1 goals per game. Granted, five of those games were against unranked opponents, but their last victory on March 23 came against No. 12 Princeton, gritting out a hard-fought 7-5 victory.USC must be as good defensively as they are offensively during this week’s contests. Along with strong defensive pressure and the occasional field block — which have been becoming more frequent during the last few games — the Women of Troy will be counting on strong outings from junior goalie Flora Bolonyai.A member of the fourth-place-finishing Hungarian national team in last year’s London Olympic games, Bolonyai has been stellar in the net for USC this season, saving 130 shots on goal and allowing only 4.9 goals allowed per game. For a team that’s offense scores an average of 16 goals per game, Bolonyai has done more than enough for her team to win games.“In my opinion, Flora is the best goalie in the NCAA,” Jovan Vavic said. “She is very intelligent, studies the game and has developed each year. With her in the goal, we have been able to do more things defensively.”Three USC players will continue their quest for 100 career goals, as Monica Vavic (93 goals), junior two-meter Kaleigh Gilchrist (90 goals) and senior driver Dominique Sardo (83 goals) are on the cusp of reaching the milestone. Gilchrist and Sardo, however, bring much more to the table than their offensive abilities. They also lead the undefeated team as co-captains.“[Gilchrist and Sardo] are a big reason why we are undefeated,” Jovan Vavic said. “Dominique was part of our championship team [in 2010], and she understands what it takes to lead the team in the right way.”With just four games remaining until the MPSF Championships in Berkeley, Calif., the Women of Troy need only to maintain the top form that they’ve been in since the season began.  Three of the team’s final four games are on the road, which means the players must be that much more focused against potentially hostile crowds.With a strong leadership core in place and talented players who dominate both sides of the ball, there is more than good reason to believe this team will come out of the weekend still unbeaten and still hungry to make a run at the NCAA championship. USC will take on LMU in Westchester today at 4 p.m. and will face the UCI in Irvine on Saturday at 1 p.m.last_img read more
