Leipzig boss Nagelsmann aims to stifle PSG stars Neymar, Mbappe

first_imgRB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann plans to subdue Paris Saint-Germain’s counter-attacking game, inspired by Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and pull off another upset in Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final.Nagelsmann, 33, is the youngest coach to reach the last four of the Champions League and will attempt to repeat Leipzig’s surprise quarter-final win over Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid when they face PSG in Lisbon.”We are a team that can take our chances against the top teams in Europe. We saw that against Atletico,” Nagelsmann said Monday. Nagelsmann says the only way to stop PSG’s fearsome attack is to defend as a unit.”You can’t foresee what Neymar and Mbappe could do, they’re top players. We need to defend them as a team.”It’ll be difficult, but we need to make them work and put them under pressure.”We want to play our own game and focus on ourselves as opposed to thinking about Paris.”Nagelsmann will try to outfox opposite number Thomas Tuchel for a place in Sunday’s final, 12 years after the pair worked together in Augsburg’s reserves.When a persistent knee injury forced Nagelsmann to retire barely out of his teens, Tuchel offered the chance to scout for him.Tuchel, 46, is well aware of his protégé’s qualities as a coach. “We know Leipzig change their tactics from game to game and can also adapt mid-match,” said Tuchel.”It’s going to be a tough game to prepare for.”We just need to focus on ourselves, our tactics, structure and qualities, and look to impose our game.” Topics :center_img “The players really have the will to win, we are hungry and I can see that in their faces.”We were great against Atletico, now we have a chance against Paris.”We have to avoid losing the ball, because PSG are very strong on the counter-attack, but we’ll try to take the game by the scruff of the neck.”PSG reached the last four with a last-gasp 2-1 win over Atalanta when Neymar and Mbappe set up late goals for Marquinhos and Eric Choupo-Moting.last_img read more

Andre Russell to know fate within a month

first_imgA JAMAICA Anti-doping Disciplinary Panel will take the next three to four weeks to determine the fate of T20 star Andre Russell, who failed to file his whereabouts information three times between January and July 2015. The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) claims Russell was negligent in filing his whereabouts on January 1, July 1 and July 25.JADCO Executive Director Carey Brown testified that Russell had been contacted by phone and letters reminding him about filing his whereabouts on the three occasions he missed the tests.If found guilty, Russell could be faced with a lengthy ban as three missed tests is the equivalent to a failed doping test. Under the revised WADA code, a first doping offence attracts a four-year ban.On Thursday, attorneys representing the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) and the beleaguered cricketer submitted their closing statements to the tribunal comprised of Hugo Faulkner, Dr Majorie Vassell and former Jamaica cricketer Dixieth Palmer.The session which began shortly after 10:00hrs finally ended shortly after 18:00hrs as time was extended by an additional two hours to allow both sides to complete submissions.“We sought to complete that process today rather than extend it to another day, so we were successful in the completion of the submissions by both sides, so it’s now for the steno writer to prepare the transcripts for today’s proceedings and then the panel will deliberate and then we will make our decision,” panel chairman Hugo Faulkner told SportsMax.tv.“Chances are we may give a verbal decision and shortly thereafter the written decision.”Faulkner said the panel is seeking to have the transcripts within another 7-10 days and then in another 14 days to bind themselves to making the decision.

ICC World Cup ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan takes inspiration from poetry in coping with injury

first_imgShikhar Dhawan smashed his 17th century in ODIs.Dhawan slammed his fourth century against Australia.Rishabh Pant has been flown in as cover for Dhawan. Pant has now been flown in as a cover for Dhawan. However, Pant won’t be considered a replacement till the time the team management takes a final call on Dhawan’s availability for the rest of the tournament. Currently, the BCCI medical team is monitoring Dhawan’s injury.Pant’s omission from the World Cup squad had raised plenty of questions. The young left-hander had become the first Indian wicketkeeper to score two centuries in overseas Tests. Pant had blasted 114 at The Oval against England in 2018 while he smashed 159 against Australia in Sydney in a series which India won 2-1, their first-ever series win Down Under.Dhawan has been ruled out of three matches due to a hairline fracture on his left thumb which he sustained during his match-winning hundred in the clash against Australia on Sunday. “Dhawan is presently under the observation of the BCCI medical team. The team management has decided that Dhawan will continue to be in England and his progress will be monitored. Dhawan sustained an injury on the back of his left hand in the region between the index finger and thumb,” the Indian team said in a statement on Wednesday night. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Shikhar Dhawan’s World Cup journey is under a cloud after suffering a hairline fracture to his thumb. The left-hander was struck by a bouncer from Pat Cummins in the game against Australia at The Oval but he battled on and scored a brilliant 117, his fourth century against the five-time champions and his 17th overall. However, the injury has ruled him out of the next three games against New Zealand, Pakistan and Afghanistan and the Indian team have requested Rishabh Pant to be flown in as cover. While many are speculating that Dhawan’s World Cup journey might be over, the Delhi opener has resorted to poetry to state that his World Cup is not over.Quoting the lines of a renowned poet Dr Rahat Indori on his Twitter handle, Dhawan wrote, “Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain…, Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udte hain…, Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi…ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain…#DrRahatIndori Ji.”last_img read more
