Roger Federer has revealed he is looking at next year’s Australian Open for a return from his knee injury.

The 35-year-old Federer has been out of action since late July, his last match was a loss to Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon semifinals.

Roger Federer Forced Out Of Rio 2016 Olympics

The 17-time Grand Slam winner had surgery in February before a back issue ruled him out of the French Open.

“I’m working for the Australian Open,” the Swiss said. “I’m doing well.”

“I never thought I’d have a year like this. I’ve learned a lot from this year,” added Federer, who missed the Rio 2016 Olympics and will be unable to go for a sixth US Open title when the tournament begins on 29 August.

“It’s painful being here in New York, and it was painful during the Olympics because I love competing. But you can’t have it all.

“It was a tough decision to say the least – going out of Rio, the US Open, the [season-ending] World Tour Finals. But in some ways it ended up being a simple decision. Health is my number one thing.”

Federer was speaking at an event in New York to launch the ‘Laver Cup’, a Ryder-Cup style tournament named after Australian legend Rod Laver and set for September 2017 in Prague, with Europe playing the Rest of the World.

Guardiola: I Cannot Keep Everyone Happy

Featured Image

Pep Guardiola has defended his decision to replace Joe Hart between the sticks at Manchester City.

The England international was named as No. 1 in the second leg against Steaua Bucharest for the first time this season.

And with Bravo’s move to the club all but confirmed, Hart received a standing ovation from the fans, in what might have been his last game for the club.

“Joe is still a player for us,” the coach told BT Sport. “I know he is a legend for this club – one of the reasons the club is what it is.

“I know he helped make this team one step above so I am so happy the players treat him like this and love him. He solved their few chances they had without a problem.

“I am here to take decisions. I make a lot of mistakes. Some good and some bad, but I try to be honest. I can’t deny what I feel. I was honest with Joe and all the players in the squad.

“Joe right now is a player for Man City and if he has to play, he will play. I am so happy that today he played at the level he has.

When asked about Hart’s popularity with the fans, Guardiola replied: “I don’t know. They can express what they feel.

“I would like all my decisions to make everyone happy but it is impossible. You have to take a decision to impact on the life of the players. We have 28 players. Seventeen cannot play.

“From the beginning I arrived here with a lot of information and I analyse. I have to take a decision and I cannot deny what I feel.

“If the fans are not happy I can understand. He has done more than I might do at this club. These guys like [David] Silva, Yaya [Toure] make this club how it is. It’s not a club with European history.

“I am here and I must take a decision. The people, some will agree and some will not. I’m not always right but I have to take the decision. That’s why City asked me to be the new manager.”

“I’m happy that I don’t talk in situations like this. Everybody who needs to be informed about this has been informed about this,” he said.

“There are no secrets with the important people, I would say.”

Mark Hughes is hopeful of getting a deal done before next week’s transfer deadline day, with the centre-back having had a turbulent time at Anfield in recent months.

Former Liverpool loanee Javier Manquillo is undergoing a medical at Sunderland’s Academy of Light ahead of a move, the club has confirmed

​Sunderland boss David Moyes did not attend his post-match press conference after a 1-0 EFL Cup win over Shrewsbury but assistant boss Paul Bracewell said the club are closing in on Atletico Madrid defender Javier Manquillo.

“The lad [Manquillo] is obviously having his medical at the moment. He came in this afternoon and he’s having his medical as we speak.”

Robbie Keane Retires From International Football

Featured Image

Republic of Ireland international, Robbie Keane has announced his retirement from international football.

The 36-year-old will end his 18-year career with the Republic of Ireland in the friendly against Oman on August 31.

Keane made his debut for the Boys in Green in 1998 against the Czech Republic and he has gone on to make a total of 145 appearances for his country, scoring 67 goals.

IN FULL: ROBBIE KEANE STATEMENT

“Today, I am announcing my decision to retire from International football following the upcoming game with Oman on 31st August in the Aviva Stadium. It has been a wonderful journey for me to have played with the Irish national team for over eighteen years since I made my senior international debut back in 1998. I have enjoyed it all.

“It has also been a great honour, for both me and my family, to have been given the opportunity to captain my country for over ten years. As a young boy growing up in Dublin playing football on the street I could never have imagined the path my life would take – it has exceeded my wildest expectations.

“I have been extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to play for and captain my country – it was my ultimate goal all those years ago and it has been, by far, my greatest achievement. I would never have believed all those years ago that I would get the opportunity to play for my country 145 times and to score 67 goals and through it all, I have never stopped chasing the next one!

“I have been on the most incredible journey with the Irish team and fans over the last 18 years and words cannot express how proud I am to be Irish. Each and every time I put on the green jersey it is such an honour.

“I have grown up playing for Ireland & look back at the 17 year old kid making his international debut, taken under the wing of Mick McCarthy & the FAI, and think of the person I am today and realise how playing for Ireland has been such a huge influence in my life.

“My teammates over the years, the backroom staff, managers, FAI and the fans became my second family. I always looked forward to meeting with the team – it became a home away from home no matter what part of the world I was living in.

“I have so many fantastic memories of days with the Irish team and have made so many friends both on and off the pitch over this time. I have been very fortunate to play at major tournaments for Ireland over the years and I will cherish all of those memories but one in particular stands out – the 2002 World Cup and scoring the late goal in Ibaraki, Japan against Oliver Kahn. The atmosphere, the adrenaline & the buzz from the fans that night is something I will always remember.

“I would like to thank all those who have supported me throughout my international career and who helped to make it all possible. There are too many people to thank each personally but a few I must recognise.

“Thanks to my parents and my family for everything they have given me and who have always helped me throughout with their absolute support and advice. I would also like to acknowledge the guidance of my uncle, Noel Byrne, for encouraging me to convert into a striker at Fettercairn and to Larry Fox & Jem Loughran who looked after me so well at Crumlin United.

“Thanks to the coaches and managers I have worked with at all stages of my international career and who helped me develop as a player.

“To Mick McCarthy – thanks for taking a chance and giving me my international debut as a 17 year old and to all the International managers I have played for since then right up to the present day with Martin & Roy and the special backroom staff. “Euro 2016 was a great experience for the team – we can look forward with a lot of confidence.

Jose Mourinho To Reject Any Arsenal Bid For Phil Jones – Because He’s Not Friend’s With Arsene wenger

​Manchester United are set to reject any offer from Arsenal for Phil Jones, because Jose Mourinho doesn’t want to do business with Arsene Wenger, according to the London Evening Standard.

Meanwhile Arsenal are still keen on a move for Shkodran Mustafi, but the two clubs are at loggerheads over a price for the 24-year-old German.

But Valencia boss Pako Ayestaran has said: “Mustafi is not for sale and will not be leaving the club.”

Hakan Calhanoglu’s Agent Claims Tottenham Intrest

​Hakan Calhanoglu’s agent has claimed that Tottenham have shown interest in the Bayer Leverkusen forward.

The 22-year-old has also been linked with Atletico Madrid in the Spanish press this summer.

His agent, Bektas Demirtas, told German publication Express: “It is true that Tottenham have registered their interest with me.”

According to Sky Sports Germany, Bayer Leverkusen’s manager Roger Schmidt does not see Calhanoglu as a first-choice starter for the new Bundesliga season and the player would like to leave.

However, striker Javier Hernandez broke his hand on Tuesday and is expected to be out for at least two weeks, therefore the chances of Calhanoglu moving to another club seems unrealistic for now.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he hopes to sign up to three new players before the transfer deadline.

Bastian Schweinsteiger who has fallen out of favour at Manchester United, has stated he’ll not play for another European club.

The former Bayern Munich man has been linker with a move away from the Old Trafford outfit, after it became clear Mourinho would not use him.

But despite being forced to train with the Under-23s at United, Schweinsteiger has remained professional throughout and has since released a statement addressing where his future lies.

“MUFC will be my last club in Europe,” Schweinsteiger wrote on Twitter. “I respect other clubs, but Manchester United was the only one which could make me leave Bayern Munich.

“I will be ready, if the team needs me. This is all I can say about my current situation.

Newell’s Old Boys Confident Of Luring Lionel Messi To Argentina Before He Retires 

Featured Image

​Argentine league side Newell’s Old Boys are confident they will lure Lionel Messi back to the club before he retires.

Lionel Messi was with his hometown club Newell’s until he moved to Barcelona to join the La Masia academy as a 14-year-old.

“I am convinced, like many of my peers, that we can make history as a club if we get the best player in the world in a Newell’s shirt,” the club’s vice president Cristian D’Amico told FourFourTwo.
“I think we’re going to get the pleasure of Messi wearing the shirt.”

Messi would have no shortage of suitors should he decide to leave Spain, but D’Amico feels the player’s return to his homeland would have a huge impact on the country’s economy, which could work in his club’s favour.

“Imagine a game with Messi in the Coloso [the club’s stadium] with the press around the world,” he said.

“The sponsors who would come, that would make a difference economically, apart from the sentimental value, and could make a big difference to clean up the debts.”

Joe Lewis : Joe Hart Can Adapt Under Pep Guardiola 

Featured Image

​Joe Hart is good enough to adapt to what Pep Guardiola requires from a goalkeeper and save his Manchester City career, says Joe Lewis.

The City manager has turned to his old club to recruit Bravo due to the Chile international’s style of play but Lewis, who was an England squad member beside Hart under Fabio Capello in 2008, believes his former team-mate could be just as effective.

The Aberdeen goalkeeper told Sky Sports News HQ: “When you set the levels he (Hart) has, you’re going to get scrutinised.

“I do feel for him a little bit but knowing Joe and the character he’s got, he’ll bounce back and do really well this season wherever he ends up.

“For the last few years you’ve had to be good with your feet as a goalkeeper and you do what you’re asked by the manager.

“If Joe wasn’t asked to do that so much in the last couple of seasons then he didn’t do it, but I’m sure he’s good enough to adjust to whatever he is asked to do.”

​Mario Balotelli faces an uncertain future after Serie A side Sassuolo turned down the chance to sign the out-of-favour Liverpool man.

The 26-year-old appears to be regarded as surplus to requirements at Anfield, with manager Jurgen Klopp having instructed him to train with the club’s U23 side.

Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola has been looking for alternative destinations but Sassuolo are not interested in the player.

The club’s chief executive Giovanni Carnevali told an Italian TV station: “Raiola offered us Balotelli, but we refused.”
