Brighton Sign Midfielder Pascal Gross From Bundesliga Club Ingolstadt

Featured Image

Brighton have begun their preparations for a first-ever season in the Premier League by signing Pascal Gross from Bundesliga club Ingolstadt for an undisclosed fee.

Midfielder Gross, who joined Ingolstadt in 2012, has agreed a four-year deal with the Seagulls and will complete his move on July 1, subject to international clearance.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton said of the club’s capture of Ingolstadt midfielder Pascal Gross.

“We are delighted Pascal has opted to sign for us, amid interest from a number of clubs from the Premier League and across Europe, and I am pleased to welcome him to the club,” he told the club’s official website.

“He offers something different to our existing midfielders, as an attacking midfielder in a more advanced position, operating behind the forward line, he will give us a different and new option going into the new season.”

Pascal Gross began his career with Hoffenheim in 2008, before switching to Karlsruhe in 2011 and later moving on to Ingolstadt in 2012.

The 25-year-old will make his last appearance for Ingolstadt this Saturday, when they tie up their Bundesliga campaign with a clash with Schalke

Jorge Sampaoli: I Cannot Turn Down Opportunity To Coach Argentina

Featured Image

Jorge Sampaoli expects Saturday’s La Liga meeting with Osasuna to be his last on the Sevilla bench after admitting his native Argentinaare bidding to make him their new head coach.

The 57-year-old told a news conference: “My country wants me as national team coach and I’ve had that dream since I was a boy.

“Last summer, I couldn’t leave because I had already committed myself to Sevilla and built the squad alongside [former sporting director] Monchi.

“This time, it is different. The opportunity to guide the national team has come along again and, as an Argentinian, I cannot turn it down.

“Even if this means that I may not have the opportunity to coach again European clubs, I feel I have to do this.”

Jorge Sampaoli is set to replace the sacked Edgardo Bauza, with the Argentina Football Association (AFA) keen to complete a deal ahead of next month’s friendlies against Brazil and Singapore.

He is under contract at Sevilla until June 2018 but can leave if his €1.5 million release clause is paid. Club president Pepe Castro has warned the AFA it will have to pay in full before he can leave.

“I’m not going to leave Sevilla for another club, but for my national team,” Sampaoli added. “But today I’m not the coach of Argentina. There is a contract that the AFA and Sevilla have to resolve, and it’s not in my hands.

“I don’t want any friction with Sevilla, whom I am grateful to.”

Sacked Walter Mazzarri Refuses To Answer Troy Deeney Fall-out Questions

Featured Image

Watford’s departing manager Walter Mazzarri says he has no regrets from his time at Vicarage Road but sidestepped questions regarding a fall-out with Troy Deeney.

“For someone that always wants more I always have the image in my head of when we were seventh and we beat Everton,” Mazzarri said.

“I would like to have that squad for the rest of the season and then I think we would have been able to do greater things this year.

“Never in my career have I had so many injuries in one season. There were some games I did not even know who to put on the pitch. But, honestly, I don’t have any regrets.”

Mazzarri was sacked on Wednesday and will leave Watford after overseeing their final game of the season at home to Manchester City on Sunday.
The Italian began his press conference with a 14-minute long prepared statement in which he thanked the fans and players, while also pointing out his team had achieved “the magic 40 points”.

Despite leading Watford to safety, however, Mazzarri has failed to convince the club’s owners, with reports suggesting he had lost the support of his squad and Deeney in particular.

Watford could finish as high as 11th if they manage to beat City this weekend but Pep Guardiola’s side also need to avoid defeat to guarantee a top-four finish.

Mazzarri believes it was the correct decision for the club to clarify his future before the final match.

“I think it was the right choice,” he said.
“It also allows the last day to be a festive day with everyone happy because we will only be thinking about celebrating the team and not other things.”

Mazzarri also addressed suggestions that his lack of fluent English had been a problem this season.

“I am still learning the language,” he said.

“I understand almost all the questions but I use the translator to give the perfect answer and not miss anything. (Mauricio) Pochettino took two years to learn the language.”

Deeney is struggling with a hip problem and is likely to miss out this weekend, along with Adrian Mariappa, who picked up a knock in training.

Mariappa’s absence leaves Watford short in central defence as Sebastian Prodl is suspended while Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart and Christian Kabasele are all unavailable through injury.

Burna Boy U.S. Tour Not Interrupted

Featured Image
Beware of false reports claiming an injunction has been issued against Burna Boy

Burna Boy fans and the general public are hereby informed that Burna’s current US tour and all upcoming shows are going forward as scheduled and that any website or article containing information to the contrary is patently false and misleading.

Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, Burna’s former promoter, has initiated a misinformation campaign designed to mislead the public about recent court proceedings in the New York federal and state courts.

In a recent press release, Vibesland has dishonestly represented that it has received an injunction barring Burna from playing his upcoming shows.

There is no such injunction or court order, and it is a matter of public record that all attempts made by Vibesland to prevent Burna from performing his upcoming Outside Tour shows has been unequivocally rejected by the courts.

On May 5, 2017, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York swiftly denied Vibesland’s application for an emergency injunction and dismissed his Complaint for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, but not before the Chief United States District Judge, Dora L. Irizarry went out of her way to condemn the tactics of the vexatious promoter for trying to stop Burna on the eve of his performances.

Vibesland, in an apparent second bite at the apple, sought to enjoin the next three concerts on Burna Boy’s U.S. Outside Tour, this time bringing its claims in the New York Supreme Court in Brooklyn where Vibesland failed, yet again, to disrupt Burna’s tour when Vibesland’s second application for a temporary restraining order was summarily denied.

To date, Burna Boy has successfully defended against two frivolous Temporary Restraining Order applications filed by Vibesland Entertainment, LLC. Burna’s shows scheduled for D.C. on May 19th, Dallas on May 20th, and Chicago on May 21st are proceeding as scheduled.

The orders of New York State Supreme Court Justice Donald S. Kurtz, dated May 17, 2017 and that of the Eastern District of New York Chief United States District Judge Dora L. Irizarry, dated May 5, 2017 are available on request.

Sam Allardyce Expecting More From Wilfried Zaha

Featured Image

Sam Allardyce says he will expect “a lot more” from Wilfried Zaha if the Crystal Palace winger signs a new bumper contract at the club.

“I think it is in negotiation, but I don’t know how far it’s gone and I certainly don’t know what the figures are,” said Allardyce before Sunday’s trip to Zaha’s former club, Manchester United.

“The figures that have been bandied about in the papers I would have thought they have been hugely exaggerated as they are always because it probably came from the agent.

“He loves Palace. As a youngster he has been brought up here, had a brief spell at Manchester United, came back, flourishing, getting a lot of publicity and, of course, with a bigger contract there is a bigger responsibility.

“So when he gets the bigger contract I will be expecting a lot more than I am already getting which is saying something because I am getting an awful lot now.”

Liverpool have not made a bid for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, contrary to reports.

Reports in Spain on Thursday evening claimed Monaco had rejected a €75 million bid from Anfield for Kylian Mbappe

But as things stand, Liverpool have been monitoring Mbappe but are not preparing any bid.

They said the Anfield scouting department is continually tracking the progress of high-performing young talent across the game.

France international Mbappe, who has two years remaining on his contract, has played a pivotal role in Monaco’s title and their run to the Champions League semifinals.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has said the teenager is not for sale for any price.

Arsene Wenger Can’t Coach His Way Out Of A Paper Bag – Tony Adams

Featured Image

Tony Adams does not think a return to Arsenal is possible while Arsene Wenger is at the club after once claiming the Frenchman “couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag”.

Speaking in his autobiography Sober, serialised in The Sun, he said: “Perhaps Arsene thought I might be too challenging for him.

“He seemed to like an assistant such as Pat Rice or Steve Bould, both great club men who were not going to ruffle feathers.

“Arsene is so dominant that he was probably not going to like it if I said, ‘We’re conceding bad goals, I’m going to take the back four today and organise them’.

“Because Arsene is essentially not a coach – and that is the second reason why I believe he didn’t want me. Back in the day I said in an interview coaching wasn’t Arsene’s strong point.

“Actually in the original draft, I said he couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag. And though I modified that in the final article, it didn’t go down well.”

“I’ll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs.

“Because, when you join a club you have a big responsibility for the future, and the future of this club needs legends like Steven Gerrard in decisive positions.”

The Frenchman, who joined Madrid from Lens in 2011, has frequently been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons, despite the fact he has been a key first-team player at the Bernabeu.

“This is a club so big that it can only continue making history and I want to continue being a part of that, that is my dream.”

While confirming this on Twitter, the Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President, Mr. Laolu Akande, also said that the document was formally received in the office of the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Friday.

Kompany: Guardiola Will Do Big Things At City

Featured Image

Vincent Kompany believes Pep Guardiola will build something special at City, as the players are already buying into his idea.

Guardiola has guaranteed a top four finish for City, but he’ll be finishing the season without a silverware for the first time in his career.

Kompany, however, has faith in the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager and is looking to next season.

He told reporters ahead of a final-day clash with Watford: “I think we’ve got a manager who has come in with a very specific vision of how he wants the game to be played.

“We have a team that will try everything to implement that.

“On certain areas we’ve been doing extremely well and no result or ranking will ever be able to translate that properly.

“We’ve dominated games, been organised, tried to play in a certain way that I always think is the beginning of something better, something special.

“But obviously we’ve lacked in key moments and everyone has to take responsibility for that.

“As long as we recognise that and try to improve on it, then we’re still set up for something good. There’s a lot still to come beyond this year.”

He added: “It does say a lot about the Premier League that two top teams will miss out on the top four. But it’s exciting. Usually you find out a lot about the teams and the players in those kind of moments.

“We’d have preferred to be tighter to first place perhaps, but I’m sure eventually that will be the case. In this instance we’re fighting for a Champions League place and it’s down to details.”

Injuries have bloodied Liverpool this season, with Coutinho, Henderson, Matip, Lallana and Mane getting sidelined this season.

The injuries have not made Klopp a happy man and he intends to bolster his squad options for the coming season.

“We need to be strong because around us we’ll have a lot of quality and they will be stronger so we will be strong – 100 per cent,” Klopp told Omnisport .

“Yes, different options, we have another tournament to play. So that’s clear, we know about everything and still then, you need to be kind of lucky with injuries. Because the injuries we had this year were not injuries from training but in the games it was knocks and ankle and ligament and really, things you have no influence on. It happened in the challenge, we didn’t do it on the training ground and problems here and problems there.

“So these significant injuries they were all from the pitch, they were all from the games. So can you say, can you sort this problem? One hundred per cent, no. But again we learnt a lot and we will bring in quality.”
