Bony urges Toure to stick with City

first_img Press Association Twelve months ago, Toure was at the centre of one of the most farcical transfer tales in history. The City midfielder agitated for a move away from the Etihad Stadium after becoming annoyed at the club for apparently failing to mark his 31st birthday sufficiently. On the day Yaya Toure turned 32, he was urged to stay at Manchester City by team-mate Wilfried Bony. The player’s adviser Dimitri Seluk complained his client was “upset” because officials at City failed to shake his hand on his birthday, adding: “It’s really sick.” A year on, Seluk has cast doubt on Toure’s position at City, claiming recently that the Ivory Coast international was “90 per cent” certain to leave the club this summer. Toure played a big part in persuading Bony to move to the Etihad Stadium from Swansea in January and the striker wants his City and Ivory Coast team-mate to stay. “I talk to him about it all the time. He knows what I think. He brought me here so he needs to stay,” the City striker said. “He told me about this being a big club, how we were the champions. “He told me it was a club that always fights – and I am always a fighter so I liked that. He told me about the pressure, everything.” City fans have been doing all they can to make sure their midfielder stays. They sang Happy Birthday to the player during Sunday’s 6-0 defeat of QPR and some supporters even created a giant card for the big Ivorian. And City’s players all want Toure to stay, according to Bony. He said: “For sure everyone wants to keep him here. “He’s a legend for this club for sure, he always will be. “We hope he stays, he’s a big player here and we know everything he is doing for the club.” Toure had to make do with a 15-minute cameo this weekend though as Manuel Pellegrini opted to start him on the bench. Toure has scored eight league goals so far this season – less than half the tally he amassed last year – but Bony thinks it is important not to be too hard on his team-mate. “It’s been difficult for him, but you have to remember it’s been three years where there’s been big tournaments, World Cup and the African Nations Cup,” he said “You need to play a lot of matches, you are playing in high temperatures, it’s not easy. Injuries can also occur in that time, the pressure and expectations are high. “There are some things in football you can’t control, like when the tournaments come round, when you get injured. You just have to try to deal with them and help the team.” last_img read more

Red Sox manager search: Five candidates Boston should consider following Alex Cora’s dismissal

first_imgWhoever’s going to walk into the manager’s office is walking into a whirlwind. There are many, many questions surrounding the Red Sox opening: With spring training just under a month away, will Boston look for a quick, veteran manager fix? Are they looking for someone for the next year, or the next five? Are they willing to go outside the box or will they play it safe with a PR move?MORE: Explaining the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal and takeaways from MLB’s reportThis manager search is unlike anything we’ve seen, so here are five candidates who may (or may not) fit the mold in Boston:Jason VaritekTek seems like he would be an obvious, popular choice among Red Sox fandom.The backstop played the entirety of his 14-year career with the Red Sox and, following his retirement in 2011, slipped into a front office role as an advisor to then-GM Ben Cherington, staying through the Dave Dombrowski regime.There’s the “issue” that Varitek hasn’t managed a game and has no coaching experience. But with the successes of inexperienced managers around baseball, that shouldn’t be a deterrent. He was the heart and soul of the Red Sox through three World Series championships and has that Beantown ‘tude fans love. If nothing else, hiring him would be a good PR move to keep the Boston media at bay for a season.Matt QuatraroQuatraro, current Rays bench coach, was a hot commodity this past offseason. He interviewed for a few different jobs and was reportedly a finalist for at least the Giants and Pirates.Certainly, the Rays are en vogue: Kevin Cash has emerged as one of the better managers in the American League, former Ray Rocco Baldelli just won manager of the year for Minnesota and Charlie Montoyo, former Rays bench coach, was entrusted the future of the organization in Toronto. So, needless to say, there’s the recency bias of wanting the latest and greatest thing in baseball on your bench.He also has the added advantage of working with Chaim Bloom, the former Rays GM who is now heralding the operation in Boston.Mark DeRosaA 15-year MLB veteran, DeRosa’s name has been popping up more and more for managerial openings over recent years. Currently working with MLB Network, DeRosa is heralded for his baseball IQ and ability to connect with players. He’s charismatic and knows his way around the media, which will certainly help in Boston.DeRosa was a finalist for the Mets managing job in 2017 before the team hired Mickey Callaway and, well, we know how that worked out. DeRosa was also seemingly unhappy with the way the job seemed to be a “collaborative effort” more than manager-as-field general, which is the way things work now, anyway.DeRosa would be an outside-the-box hire, and he could very well be an answer moving forward. But would the Red Sox be willing to take the risk of the unknown?MORE: One big task remains in MLB sign-stealing scandalRon RoenickeCora’s current bench coach, Roenicke has a fair amount of managing experience as the head man of the Brewers between 2011-15. He was also a longtime bench coach before and after that, coming on as Cora’s lieutenant in 2018.Roenicke would be the quick fix here, but the question is whether Bloom would be willing to give the keys to Roenicke, who’s under investigation by MLB just the same for sign-stealing in 2018. A potential suspension is looming, which would immediately take him out of the fold. David OrtizWell, this would be fun, wouldn’t it?The likelihood of Ortiz wanting to be a manager is slim, but he’s an iconic figure in Boston and would be an instant hit among fans. He’s well-respected by his peers and has been around long enough that he certainly learned something. After all, he played for Terry Francona for a long time and helped end the Red Sox’s World Series drought.There’s been essentially zero talk of Ortiz of being a candidate for the Red Sox job in the future — of even wanting to manage — but it would be interesting to see how and if Big Papi would be able to stabilize Boston in 2020. Who woulda thunk it?Alex Cora’s managing tenure with the Red Sox came to a screeching halt on Tuesday after he and the Red Sox decided to “mutually part ways” following the revelation of his role in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal — and subsequent investigation surrounding the Red Sox for sign-stealing in 2018.last_img read more

Accused child killer freed

first_img…no case submission upheldA man who was accused of killing a 14-year-old boy on the Corentyne in 2016 was on Thursday set free after a no case submission was upheld by Justice Joann Barlow in the Berbice Assizes.Justice Joann Barlow ruled that there was no evidence to convict the accused.On trial for the August 2016 murder of 14-year-old Akeem Jamila Grimond, also called “Lil Boy” and ‘Ukery Black Boy’, of 53 Section ‘B’ Number 61 Village Corentyne, was Terami Gooleharran, also called “Bruise Up”.It was alleged that Gooleharran murdered the teenager between August 18 and 22, 2016. Grimond’s decomposed body was discovered in a ditch situated in the backlands of the village.The Prosecution’s case, presented by State Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy, was that Gooleharran killed Grimond and left his body at the village cemetery.The prosecution called seven witnesses, including a pathologist and wife of the accused — Tajwattie Persaud, also called ‘Finie,’ who was the Prosecution’s chiefFreed: Terami Gooleharranwitness.In her evidence, Persaud said that two days after Grimmond was reported missing, her husband came home with blood on his clothes, and he told her that the boy is dead, and they would have to buy biscuits and coffee.Under cross examination by Defence Attorney Sasha Robertson, Persaud said she had a good relationship with her husband.She also admitted that the day he had blood on his clothes, he did bring home pig meat. The woman also told the court that when her husband told her that they have to buy biscuit and coffee, there was already a tent erected in front of the yard where Grimond lived.Being re-examined by Prosecutor Hardy, the witness added that her husband told her that he killed the teenager. It was the first time she was mentioning this development since giving Police a statement back in 2016.She also admitted that she had made several reports at the Number 51 Police Station that her husband had physically hurt her.Robertson told the court that the Prosecution failed to make out a case against theDead: Akeem Jamila Grimondaccused. She argued that the chief witness would have moved out and started living with someone else as soon as her husband had been arrested.Robertson also noted that Government Pathologist Dr Vivekanand Bridgemohan testified that the boy would have died days before he was last reported being seen. She also pointed out that the witnesses who testified said neither the step-father with whom Grimond lived nor his mother had attended the funeral, nor has either since been seen.Justice Barlow said the evidence seemed to be pointing to other people, and not the accused. She advised Gooleharran to stay away from Persaud, noting Persaud had said they were having issues in their relationship. He was also advised to pull his life back together, as he was freed.last_img read more

Busch spun out by Burton at finish

first_imgLAS VEGAS – Jeff Burton nudged a spinning Kyle Busch across the finish line Saturday to win a chaotic, caution- marred Busch Series race at LasVegas Motor Speedway. Complaints about the reconfigured track and the hard tires Goodyear has provided then dominated the postrace conversation, as drivers warned the Nextel Cup race Sunday could be a disaster. “The race will suck,” said Kevin Harvick, who finished seventh. “The paving is awful. It’s rough. They had some guys that pave parking lots out there doing it. It’s pretty awful.” Las Vegas officials repaved the track during the offseason and increased the banking from 12 degrees to 20 as track owner Bruton Smith sought to improve the competition. But it made speeds extremely high, forcing Goodyear to bring a hard left tire that Matt Kenseth called “treacherous” to the track. Burton finally got to Busch again on the last lap, and used all of it to make his move. Burton went for it as they exited the last turn, pulling to the top of the track and making the pass on the outside. Busch wiggled slightly and his car bounced off Burton’s to start his spin across the finish line. “Couldn’t hold the bottom. Couldn’t hold the top. Couldn’t hold him off,” a frustrated Busch said as he walked away from his damaged race car. “He beat me fair and square.” Burton drove to Kyle Busch’s damaged car, saw Busch had already exited it and followed him. Busch then went up to the window and shook hands with Burton. “I take a lot of pride in getting by him, he’s one of the top young talents in the sport,” Burton said. “I knew if I went under him I would get too loose to pass him. So I just figured `What the hell? I’ll go up there and see what happens.’ I got up there and it stuck and I had momentum. “Then Kyle did exactly what I would have done. He tried to get me slowed down to slow my momentum down, and hang a left to try to get to the start/finish line. He just couldn’t stop it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img Greg Biffle said it felt like he was driving on black ice, and Kasey Kahne said every lap is a fight to keep the car from wrecking. The Busch race was marred by a record 12 cautions for 58laps, and the postrace debate overshadowed a spectacular finish that denied Busch a victory on his home track. Contact between Burton and Busch as the two cars approached the checkered flag sent Busch into a spin, and he crossed the finish line backward before shooting up the track and into the wall. He still finished second. The Las Vegas native took turns dominating the race with his older brother, Kurt. Burton caught Kyle Busch on the 13th lap, but lost the lead after a red-flag restart. last_img

Gor Mahia hit Nzoia to open nine-point gap

first_imgNzoia had the earliest chance of the game after a speedy start but Victor Omondi could not beat Gor shot stopper Peter Odhiambo one on one after running behind the Gor defense.K’Ogalo however grew into the game as it progressed with Tuyisenge and Kagere making inroads into the Nzoia backline, looking for that opening chance.They got the goal they yearned for in the 25th minute when Tuyisenge raced in to a George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo cross, glancing it powerfully past the Nzoia keeper.The goal hugely calmed Gor down as they played with more ease, passing the ball around with comfort. Gor doubled their lead a minute to half time, Kagere again sneaking in behind the defense to head home a freekick from Kenneth Muguna.In the second half, Nzoia started with pace again and had a chance to half the deficit from the penalty spot after Gor keeper Odhiambo had fouled Masita Masuta. However, Steve Wakanya failed to convert, Odhiambo redeeming himself with a good save.Nzoia were punished for the missed chance three minutes later when Tuyisenge completed his brace with a neat finish.Kahata then made it 4-0 barely three minutes after coming in with another header, this time Tuyisenge turning from goal scorer to provider, floating in the cross.Dylan Kerr’s men managed to keep the score intact, choosing to enjoy the play and wind down the clock with Tuyisenge later withdrawn for John Ndirangu.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia skipper Musa Mohammed vies for the ball with Nzoia forward Masita Masuta during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 9, 2017.
