Pacers’ Al Jefferson Sprains Ankle

Featured Image

Indiana Pacers 107-94 win over Philadelphia 76ers left them with center, Al Jefferson sustaining an ankle sprain.

The injury will see the big man sidelined for a number of days. He had 14 points and seven rebounds, before he landed awkwardly on another player’s foot as he caught a fourth quarter rebound.

Jefferson looked to be in pain after rolling his ankle and had to be taken off the court with a wheelchair, but x-ray revealed he just had a sprain.

“Anybody who’s rolled their ankle like that knows the pain, the throbbing pain,” Jefferson told Fox Sports Indiana after the game. “It’s just an ankle sprain, and I just have to get through it.

“This is about my 600th ankle sprain. I’ve got to get through it and get back on the court as quick as I can.”

    Featured Image

    Philippe Coutinho says Everton beating Liverpool to the top four is not worrisome to the Anfield club.

    Everton are three spots behind Liverpool on the table and could reduce the points deficit to three, should they win at Anfield on Saturday.

    Everton are in impeccable form, with their frontman , Lukaku topping the goalscoring charts in the league. Koeman’s men have scored 17 goals in their last six matches.

    Nevertheless, Coutinho is remaining resolute and says Liverpool will show they’re still the club to beat in Merseyside.

    “I don’t think about [Everton’s form] or worry about that,” he insisted. “Right now, Liverpool is higher in the league, that’s the reality and that’s all we have to think about.

    “We will be ready. The derby is a very special match for everyone, the fans and the players.

    “We know what it means. The people of Liverpool live this match with so much emotion and this time it is even more because Everton have improved so much in recent weeks.

    “We know it won’t be easy, but we know we have to win, for our fans, for our morale and for everybody.”

    Tony Bellew has responded to the scathing criticism from Dillian Whyte, who called him a fake heavyweight and he is just fat.

    The Merseysider is planning to stay in the heavyweight class, as he is looking for other heavyweight boxers to spar with.

    Bellew’s victory didn’t seem impressive to Whyte, and believes he must stay in cruiserweight.

    “I am a fat heavyweight, not fake,” Bellew told Sky Sports. “That’s the first part, instead of fake.

    “Thank you very much for the publicity, but I refuse to give it back.”

    the 34-year-old has ruled out Whyte, who is expected to fight on the Kell Brook-Errol Spence Jr undercard on May 27.

    Bellew said: “All I will say is, why I am going to go from fighting the former undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world, the former heavyweight champion of the world, to fighting someone who got knocked out for a British title?”

    Eusebio Not Considering Barcelona Job, Remains Committed To Real Sociedad

    Featured Image

    Eusebio Sacristan, Real Sociedad’s head coach has stated he would turn down the chance to manage Barcelona, if he is approached by the club.

    The former Barcelona B coach believes he didn’t get enough recognition during the four years he spent as part of the coaching staff.

    Eusebio is among the favourites to replace Luis Enrique at Barcelona when he leaves at the end of the season, but Sacristan will like to repay Real Sociedad for the faith they showed in him by staying put.

    Asked about the reported Barca interest, he told AS: “I don’t want to waste even a second on that. Really. It’s clear for me.

    “I can understand that a player might have some doubts – everyone likes them. And I’m not saying that I don’t like being thought of as a future coach of a great club – it means that my work is being noticed.

    “It’s flattering for me, but it’s not fulfilling for me. What fulfils me is to have a great season with Real.

    “The fact that it’s happening [the rumours] is thanks to the club, to Real, who noticed me and took a chance on me after four years on the Barca coaching staff. Barca, when I was within their organisation, never noticed me. And that’s what I would have liked.

    “Now, I owe my loyalty to Real, who believed in me and give me support.”

    When asked if it remains a dream to take the top job at Camp Nou, he continued: “Not right now. My goal as a coach is the same as when I was a player: to have a long career.

    “I don’t know where the future will take me, nor what motivations I will have. Everything I’m looking for I have right now with Real, and I want to keep that going for as long as possible.

    “I can assure you [I would say no]. I’m telling you now, and I’ll tell you again when they call me.

    “People don’t seem to believe me. I say it with 100 per cent conviction.”

    Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde and Juan Carlos Unzue, assistant coach to Luis Enrique, are among the favourites to take charge at Barca for next season.

    Bale was booked for a tackle on O’Shea in the stalemate against Republic of Ireland and will consequently miss the match against Serbia in June.

    “We have got to find another way and we will.

    APC Slams El-Rufai Over ‘Critical’ Memo To Buhari

    Featured Image

    A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has slammed Governor Nasir El- Rufai, saying he lacks the moral justification to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari.

    El-Rufai Admits Memo To Buhari, Denies Leaking It To The Media

    The faction, known as ‘APC Akida’, yesterday blamed the state governor for the lingering crisis bedeviling the state chapter of the party, alleging that he has remained obstinate in spite of all efforts to resolve the issues.

    Kaduna Governor El-Rufai Under Probe Over ‘Damning’ Memo To Buhari

    In a press statement issued in Kaduna, the Chairman of the APC Akida, Mr. Tom Mataimaki Maiyashi, said the El-Rufai’s Memo to Buhari in which he kept mentioning specific people in the present cabinet as unfit, incompetent and clueless, was not only wicked, but did not match the aspirations and yearning of Nigerians.

     “In our view, knowing the role Mr. President played and his integrity, Nasir El-Rufai wouldn’t have become the governor of Kaduna State.

    “El-Rufai’s Memo is a total disrespect, shocking and clueless. How will Nasir El-Rufai write such a Memo to Mr. President when he is doing nothing in Kaduna State?

    “Look at gutters all over the state, I wonder if that is a mark of progress in our state,” Maiyashi said.

    He alleged that El-Rufai is more guilty of the accusations levelled against the president in the memo.

    He continued: ”Someone who claims to be holier than thou asked us to go and climb Kufena Mountain and jump if we are not satisfied with his appointments. He even said we are ants he can crush with his iron shoes.

    “El-Rufai muzzles and pounds us. Can such a person correct Mr.President? This is a height of disrespect, arrogance and deceit.”

    “Nasir El-Rufai should first change himself. It is the integrity of Mr. President that makes him to be a governor today. Malam Nasir el-Rufai can never be a role model of proper conduct.

    “So, for him to tell Mr. President what to do in his administration its unfortunates. He should have been the least if at most people should criticise Buhari.

    “Everything that Kaduna state government is entitle to is been given. From the Paris club funds refund to bail out for states. El-Rufai has shown nothing for these funds apart from the federal allocations.

    “Nothing to show that merited what Kaduna has been getting from thefederal government. El-Rufai has failed woefully,” the group added.

    Southgate: Defoe In Contention For World Cup

    Featured Image

    England manager Gareth Southgate has stated that Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe has the chance of playing for England in the world cup.

    The 34-year-old striker scored in the 2-0 win over Lithuania , his first appearance on the international scene since 2013.

    And Southgate has suggested that if he remains fit and in form, he could represent England in the 2018 World Cup.

    “We have got to look every time we get together as to who is in form,” Southgate told reporters when asked about Defoe’s World Cup chances.

    “I don’t know if we can have a distinct pecking order because players that are playing well deserve the opportunity.

    “If we are going to be successful, we have got to have that competition for places.

    “The reality is we will always lose players to injury, we have never been able to field or pick a full cohort, so it is really important that we are able to call upon the likes of Jermain and for him to have the impact he had in a game like this one.

    “But if he is scoring goals in the Premier League and playing as well as he has this season, then there is absolutely no reason why he couldn’t [go to the World Cup].”

    Southgate added: “It is a great moment for him. He was thrilled to be back involved in the squad. I think he has enjoyed his week immensely.

    “I’m pleased for the two lads who have got the goals, a great story for Jermain – I would have put my house on him scoring at some stage – and I felt Jamie Vardy added something to us.”

    Mesut Ozil says he will hold talks with Arsenal over his future and decide whether to sign a new contract “soon”.

    The Germany attacker’s current deal expires in 2018 and there has been widespread speculation that he could leave the Emirates in the summer.

    He told German newspaper Die Welt: “Do you think Arsene Wenger tells the journalists [about my future] before he tells me? I know him differently.

    “I have a contract until 2018 in London and I feel very comfortable there. We’ll talk soon and then make a decision.

    “My dream is to win the Champions League. Why not with Arsenal? Of course, we just have a difficult time and are not satisfied with sixth place.

    “I am convinced, however, that we will catch up again soon. Let’s see what the future holds.”

    On Friday, the former Real Madrid playmaker said he is still “very happy” at Arsenal but “something is not working with the team” at the moment.
