Onyekuru Calls Odemwingie for Advice

first_imgHenry Onyekuru has reportedly sought for the advice of Osaze Peter Odemwingie over his potential move to England this summer.Arsenal, Birmingham City, Newcastle United and West Ham United have been heavily linked with a move for the 20-year-old Nigerian winger.Odemwingie, who now plays in the Indonesian top division with Madura United, lifted the lid that Onyekuru “rang me up asking for help and advice” about moving to England when news first broke about interest in him from Scottish giants Celtic.The former West Brom man also took time to explain that Onyekuru is in hot demand considering the stats he amass for himself with Belgian side KAS Eupen last season.“I think the numbers speak for themselves. I don’t know him much really. He rang me asking for help and advice in the last window in January. He told me there was an option with Celtic and options here and there.“I said if you want to play in the Premier League, which is where every player should aim at at some point in his career, coming to Scotland means you’re one step closer and people will easily send scouts to watch you there.“And the work permit issue will be less difficult because he is still part of the UK.“There is interest in him because he scores a lot of goals. I don’t know if in England physicality might be a problem for him, but he’s quite mobile and quick so maybe he can do it over here,” said the 35-year-old forward to the Birmingham Mail.Onyekuru who scored 24 goals for Eupen last term will now make a decision on his future in the coming days after reports suggest he has been issued a United Kingdom visa this week. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more


Badgers ready for final regular season home series against Minnesota-Duluth

first_imgIn its last home series of the regular season, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team is set to take on Minnesota-Duluth this weekend, with both teams looking to get a leg up in the race for a playoff spot.Sitting in third place in the WCHA, the No. 8 Badgers (17-9-2, 13-9-2 WCHA) are just two points out of second place behind North Dakota (45 points). Facing off against them is a Bulldog team (14-11-3, 13-10-1 WCHA) that trails UW by three points in the league standings.While No. 1 Minnesota has run away with the regular season WCHA title, home-ice advantage is still very much up for grabs for the conference tournament, and every win will help either team reach the NCAA tournament come March.“The nice thing about it, we have control over where we want to go. If you’re successful the next couple of weekends, get yourself in the playoffs, you’re playing well you’re healthy, the opportunities are out there,” head coach Mark Johnson said at his Monday press conference. “As a coach and as a team, that’s all you can ask for.”Last time on the ice, the Badgers trounced St. Cloud State on the road with 6-0 and 5-1 wins last weekend. Wisconsin found success on its power play throughout the series, putting away four goals – three of which came in game two – with the man-advantage.After losing three of its previous four game heading into last week, UW needed to get back to the basics, and for Johnson the weekend was important for establishing a base for a playoff run.“Coming off what I thought was six very good periods up in St. Cloud. I like the way we played. A lot of good things happened within both Friday and Saturday’s game,” Johnson said Monday. “It bodes well because at this time of the year is when you want to be playing your best hockey. We’re going down that path right now.”However Minnesota-Duluth will be no easy opponent to take down. The Bulldogs find themselves in need of a boost after splitting a series with Minnesota State-Mankato last weekend at home, and being swept by Minnesota the weekend before.Historically Wisconsin holds a 26-29-10 all-time record against the Bulldogs. Back in mid-October the Bulldogs swept UW and held the Badgers scoreless through both games. However in four months both teams have evolved and with the programs so close in standings, fans will likely see two hard-fought games this weekend.Emotions will also run high, as the upcoming series marks the last regular season home games Wisconsin’s five senior players will face off in. Forwards Brianna Decker, Alev Kelter and Lauren Unser, along with defensemen Saige Pacholok and Jordan Brickner will be honored at Sunday’s game. For Johnson it is hard to imagine their four years are almost up.“You look at your senior class and you can remember when they first stepped on campus as freshman and their parents hugged them and letting them go. … That’s certainly an emotional day,” Johnson said Monday. “And you will see the same thing Sunday, when those families come back into town and they watch their daughters step on the ice and play their last regular season games. You think wow, where did those four years go”?The team will face off Saturday night at 7 p.m. at LaBahn Arena and return to the ice Sunday at 4 p.m. for game two of the series.last_img read more


FURIOUS: Lionel Messi brands teammates “weak” after Real Madrid lift La Liga

first_imgLionel Messi has blasted his team-mates after Barcelona lost the LaLiga title to Real Madrid.The Argentine superstar dubbed them “weak” and “erratic” and cast doubt over their chances of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.Real bagged their first LaLiga title since 2016/17 with a 2-1 home win against Villareal yesterday while Barca lost by the same scoreline at home to Osasuna.GURIAnd Messi, 33, said: “We didn’t want to end the season like this but it represents how the season has gone.“We were a very erratic, very weak, low-intensity team. We lost a lot of points and today’s game is a summary of the season.“We have to be self-critical. Starting with the players but doing a global self-criticism.“We are Barca and we have to win everything.“We can’t look at Madrid. Madrid have done their job, but we have helped them a lot.”And Messi also cast doubt over Barca’s ability to reach the last eight of the Champions League.They drew 1-1 at Napoli in the first leg of their last-16 tie before lockdown and have to beat the Italians or draw 0-0 in the home leg on August 8 to progress.Messi added: “If we want to win the Champions League, we have to change a lot. If we continue like this, we will lose the game against Napoli.”“We have to change lots of things.“We have a game against Napoli just around the corner and things have to change.“I think we’ll have a break now which will be good for us to clear the heads a bit.“January until now has been such a terrible time for everybody.“I think in the Champions League there are four matches where we could turn the whole season around if we get the right results.“I think the people here at the club will feel angry about what’s been going on this season but that’s normal, the players feel like that too, it’s logical people will be critical.“I think it’s like losing against Roma and Liverpool, when you don’t win anything no-one is happy.”Barca will face Chelsea or Bayern Munich in the next round if they beat Napoli.last_img read more
