Chelsea’s Frank Lampard Sees No Need for More European Games

first_img champions leaguechelseaEuropa LeagueEurope First Published: October 18, 2019, 9:17 AM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak. Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. London: Chelsea manager Frank Lampard sees no need for more European club matches, he said on Thursday, as discussions continued over the future of UEFA competitions.The European Club Association (ECA), representing more than 200 clubs, says it wants more matches and more teams involved when new formats are introduced from 2024. However, this has run into opposition from the region’s national leagues who argue that any expansion must not come at the expense of domestic football.”At the minute. ..I think the level is about right,” Lampard told reporters during an event organised by the European Leagues umbrella organisation.”The competition is good, we have the group stage, can we get through that. ..I like the format personally as a manager now.”If you ask me can we play more European games, I personally don’t know where you’d fit them in amongst our busy schedule,” he added.”I always find it hard with the players to keep the quality level and the freshness within the (team) so I think if we did do that there would be a lot of discussion about how that worked practically.”Lampard said he had a soft spot for the League Cup which would be the obvious casualty if teams need to fit in more games.”We won it a couple of times at Chelsea and it was the first competition I ever did win,” he said.An initial proposal, drawn up by UEFA in conjunction with the ECA earlier this year, has been sidelined by strong opposition.It had envisaged a three-tier pan European league with promotion and relegation between the divisions.The top tier would have been the new version of the Champions League but with 24 of the 32 teams keeping their places for the following season, breaking the tradition that qualification is achieved through domestic competition.European Leagues chairman Lars-Christer Olsson said football, not finance, had to be the main consideration in redesigning UEFA competition.”The starting point has to be football and not the distribution of revenues,” said the Swede, a former UEFA chief executive. “We have to remember that we are a sport first and foremost.”Marc Ingla, chief executive of French club Lille, told Reuters that clubs wanted more European games.”All clubs want more Europe and better Europe but not at the cost of losing access rights to these competitions, not at the cost of having a marginal portion of the revenue that can be generated or at the cost of giving even more means to the top clubs,” he said. last_img read more

ATP Paris Masters: Rafael Nadal Beats Stan Wawrinka to Reach Quarters

first_img atpATP Paris MastersJo-Wilfried TsongaParis Masters First Published: November 1, 2019, 7:08 AM IST Paris: Rafael Nadal continued his quest for a maiden Paris Masters title with a no-nonsense 6-4 6-4 victory against old foe Stan Wawrinka to reach the quarter-finals on Thursday.The Spaniard, who will take over as world number one from Novak Djokovic on Monday, converted two of three break chances to claim his 19th win in 22 encounters against the Swiss. The 19-time grand slam champion will next face local favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who beat German Jan-Lennard Struff 2-6 6-4 7-6(6), making the most of his wildcard status in Paris.”I think my game worked well. On the return today, for me, it was a little bit difficult,” said second seed Nadal, who called a medical timeout because of a minor stomach bug.”I think I didn’t return as well as I was doing in previous days. But it’s true that Stan always has a good serve, and difficult to read.”The result ended Wawrinka’s hopes of qualifying for the season-ending ATP Finals, leaving only Frenchman Gael Monfils and Italian Matteo Berrettini with a chance to grab the last of eight tickets for the Nov. 10-17 showdown.Monfils, who needs to reach the last four to leapfrog Berrettini in the race to London after the Italian was eliminated in the second round at Bercy, beat Moldova’s Radu Albot 4-6 6-4 6-1.The Frenchman was a break down in the second set before he started to play more freely and breezed through the decider to set up a clash with Canadian Denis Shapovalov.Top seed Djokovic had to dig deep in the opening set as he reached the quarter-finals with a 7-6(7) 6-1 win against Britain’s Kyle Edmund.The 16-time grand slam winner was kept on his toes before racing to victory to set up a meeting with Greek seventh seed Stefanos Tsitsipas who beat Australian Alex De Minaur 6-3 6-4.Serbian Djokovic bagged the first set at the seventh opportunity and he did not look back after breaking for 2-1 in the second with a booming forehand winner.Fifth seed Dominic Thiem was beaten 6-3 6-2 by Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, who will play in his first quarter-final at a Masters event since Canada 2018.Dimitrov, who had been struggling since reaching the U.S. Open semi-finals, played brilliantly throughout, taking advantage of Thiem’s fading condition after the Austrian won the title in Vienna last Sunday.Dimitrov next takes on Chile’s Cristian Garin, who beat local favourite Jeremy Chardy 6-7(4) 6-4 7-6(6).Sixth-seed German Alexander Zverev also went as he lost 6-2 5-7 6-2 to Shapovalov.

Set free women prisoners over 75 years old: Cong MP

first_imgNew Delhi, Mar 8 (PTI) A strong plea to set free women prisoners above the age of 75 years was made in the Rajya Sabha today on the International Womens Day. As the House met after lunch, Congress MP Rajiv Shukla made this suggestion saying those women who have crossed 75 years of age should be given amnesty. Shukla also suggested that the government should consider whether those women undergoing sentence for heinous offences, could be freed if they have spent five years behind bars. Deputy Chairman P J Kurien asked Shukla if there were cases of such women languishing in prisons. As Shukla pressed his suggestion, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the Home Ministry would be apprised of the suggestion and added that the issue pertained to state governments. As the House proceeded to take other business, Kurien told Shukla that it was a “good suggestion.” PTI ADS ARClast_img read more

Nico Rosberg extends win streak in China, Lewis Hamilton seventh

first_imgNico Rosberg claimed a dominant win in an action-packed Formula One Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday to extend his championship lead over Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton, who battled up to seventh with some feisty driving after starting last.Rosberg crossed the line a mammoth 37.7 seconds ahead of German compatriot Sebastian Vettel, who recovered after colliding with his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen at the first corner, to claim his third win from three races this season.Daniil Kvyat finished third to score Red Bull their first podium finish since September’s Singapore Grand Prix but the Russian had to defend himself after the race when an angry Vettel blamed him for the collision between the Ferraris.Sunday’s win was the 17th of Rosberg’s career and extends his streak of race victories to six, dating back to last November’s Mexican Grand Prix.The German now leads Hamilton at the top of the standings by 36 points with 18 rounds of a record 21-race season to run.Hamilton, who had started from dead last after failing to set a time in Saturday’s qualifying session due to an engine problem, finished seventh, running into further trouble at the start when he lost his front wing in a first-corner collision.The Briton used some good-old fashioned racing nous and clever strategy from Mercedes to work his way up to third, but his challenge faded in the later stages of the race.Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo finished fourth. The Australian rocketed off the line from second on the grid and shot past Rosberg into an early lead, but was pushed onto the back foot after being forced into an early stop by a tyre failure.advertisementRaikkonen, who came off worse in the first-corner collision with team mate Vettel, was sixth ahead of Felipe Massa of Williams.Max Verstappen was eighth ahead of Toro Rosso team mate Carlos Sainz, while Valtteri Bottas rounded out the top ten for Williams.The race was interrupted by an early safety car after a series of incidents at the very first corner left debris across the track.The safety car led to a chopping and changing of the order with some drivers choosing to pit even as others stayed out, putting a mix of tyre strategies into play.last_img read more

Datsun redi-Go not a concept anymore, production version revealed

first_imgDatsun has revealed their all new entry level hatchback, the redi-Go. The redi-Go is based on the same CMFA platform which alliance partner Renault used for the Kwid. However the redi-Go looks and feels different. It sports a rather rakish design which sets it apart from its sibling, the Kwid. Dimensions reveal that the redi-Go is 3.4m in length and sports a wheelbase of 2,430mm. Overall the redi-Go comes with a more proportionate design as compared to its nearest rival.Also Read: Datsun redi-Go unveiled, India launch in June Inside the redi-Go looks cool thanks to a rather rakish dash. The centre console houses the audio system and right below it sit the controls for the aircon. There are also a whole host of cubby holes around the cabin which sure comes handy. The instrument panel is borrowed from the Micra and is quite comprehensive for a car of its size. Datsun is also offering a driver’s side airbag but we expect it to come in only the top variants. As far as space is concerned the redi-Go offers ample headroom thanks to it being rather tall. The boot too is deep and spacious for a car of this class.Also Read: Comparison: Datsun redi-Go vs Alto 800 vs Eon vs Kwid Power comes from a 799cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine which churns out 54bhp and 72Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Expect the redi-Go to be a rather fuel efficient car. Datsun will also offer multiple accessory packages which will be available at dealership and treated as optional extra. So if you like the redi-Go, Datsun will open bookings from May and deliveries will begin in June.advertisementlast_img read more

SPORT-LEICESTER 2

first_imgAt times, club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha seemed At times, club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha seemed to hold onto the trophy longer than his players on the field as he was followed by a picture of the Thai king. “I always believed in the power of our spirit,” he wrote in yesterdays matchday magazine. “It is a spirit that has spread beyond Leicester, taking our story to the hearts of the world.” Thousands of fans gathered outside the stadium more than four hours before kickoff, before a deluge washed out the sunshine. Hundreds of Italians also traveled by bus and plane to Leicester without tickets just to be part of a story that has enthralled the world beyond football fans. They have been captivated by how compatriot Claudio Ranieri turned the team into Englands first first-time champions since promoted Nottingham Forests 1978 success — an era before the financial disparities were so vast. The most famous Italian at the celebrations was tenor Andrea Bocelli, who serenaded Ranieri on the field before the game to sing “Nessun Dorma,” the aria popularised in England during the 1990 World Cup. “The cameras want to see if you cry,” Ranieri later recalled thinking. “Today I said, No. But emotions inside me were at the top … I tried to stay calm without the emotion.” Ranieris managerial career has taken in some of Europes biggest clubs from Juventus to Chelsea but only at Leicester with its modest budget has he become a title winner. For the crowning moment of his career, Ranieri was joined by family, friends, and former players. “Hes always been a calm manager in all circumstances, both when the team is doing well and when theyre not,” Vittorio Pusceddu, who played for Ranieri at Napoli and Fiorentina in the 1990s, said as he walked through Leicester to the stadium in the afternoon sun. “A manager has to do that, he has to instill calm in the environment. Hes very good at that and thats what happened (at Leicester).” MORE AP SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more

I will retire if I don’t get interesting job offers, says Manuel Pellegrini

first_imgFormer Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini would consider retiring from management if he does not get any exciting offers. (Latest Football stories)The 62-year-old, who guided City to their first Champions League semi-final this season, has been linked with the vacant managerial position at Everton.”If I don’t have a really interesting option I will stop until I find one,” Pellegrini told the Guardian.”If I have to stop (completely), I will stop. It can be now, (until) December, one year or for ever. Of course, I would miss it. The challenge keeps me alive.”The Chilean confirmed his departure from the Etihad in a news conference in February and the club immediately announced the appointment of former Barcelona manager Guardiola as his successor.Pellegrini said it was his choice to make the decision public.”Yes, it was my decision,” he added.”After Guardiola said he was coming to England it was my decision because all the media was talking about Guardiola here, Guardiola in Arsenal, Guardiola in Manchester United.”It was not fair for all managers — when everyone knew he was coming here.”It’s impossible to know if it was the right decision.”The aftermath of the announcement had serious repercussions for City’s title hopes as they lost home games to Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur and exited the FA Cup in a 5-1 defeat at Chelsea.”I am very self-critical about what I do.” Pellegrini said.”Always.

Not for me, for the players.”advertisementTURNING POINTA poor second half of the season meant City finished fourth in the league, scraping into the Champions League qualifying round for next season.Pellegrini also pinpointed the injury sustained by Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne as one of turning-points in City’s season.”Absolutely decisive. But as a manager what can you do? Say we cannot play without Kevin De Bruyne? What will all the other players think?,” he added.”When you keep the ball so well as Kevin it’s very difficult to be a bad player but he must improve and will.”Pellegrini won the Premier League and two League Cups with City after joining them in 2013.last_img read more
