Osimhen will join Tottenham if Kane leaves, agent of Lille striker gives condition

first_img At the start of the month, Telefoot claimed Lille had received an offer for the 21-year-old striker, who had been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea. Le 10 Sport reported that Liverpool were leading the race for Osimhen and on Boubakary Soumare, who is believed to be interesting some of the world’s biggest clubs. However, according to Les Cahiers du Football editor Abdellah Boulma, the £75m bid, plus bonuses came from Jose Mourinho at Spurs. And that suggestion is starting to carry some weight after Osimhen’s agent Ariyo Igbayilola revealed that the striker would not consider a move unless Kane left the north London club. Igbayilola told The Cable: “We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry Kane be leaving?Advertisement Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, will only sign for Tottenham if Harry Kane leaves the club, according to the Lille striker’s agent. Loading… “If Harry Kane is still playing for Tottenham will Victor play? Because he will always be benched for him. “Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain of England, all these will always work for him in the club but at Victor’s detriment. “He needs a club where he will always play full games week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench.” read also:Arsenal chiefs identify Osimhen as Aubameyang’s replacement Kane has also been the subject of much speculation, with Manchester United and Real Madrid believed to be interested parties, after the England man recently warned that he will not simply stay at Tottenham “for the sake of it”. Teddy Sheringham this week offered some advice to Kane and thinks the striker is at a “crossroads” in his career.

Graham: No regrets over Swans exit

first_img The 28-year-old left the Liberty Stadium to join Sunderland in January, before linking up with the Tigers on loan during the summer. Graham had not scored since leaving south Wales, until he popped up to grab the opener in Hull’s 1-1 draw against the Swans on Monday night. Hull striker Danny Graham insists he has never regretted leaving Swansea, and hopes he can now reward the faith of Tigers’ boss Steve Bruce after ending his goal drought against his former employers. His previous goal had been for Swansea in the Capital One Cup against Chelsea on January 9, his previous Premier League goal had been on New Year’s Day against Aston Villa. Graham’s far-post strike ended a run of 30 goalless games in all competitions, and a 1,626-minute barren spell in the Premier League. By contrast, Graham scored 21 goals for Swansea in a season and a half, but felt he had to leave as his “face didn’t fit” in Michael Laudrup’s set-up, the striker having been brought to the club by Brendan Rodgers. And, despite his travails over the last 11 months, he never pondered what might have been with Swansea, who won the Capital One Cup to secure a Europa League place just weeks after Graham left. “I never regret anything in football,” he said. “You have your ups and your downs and you take it, that’s how it is. It is easy when the goals are flying in and stuff, but I made that decision and I stand by it. “The move was down to the amount of games I was playing. “I waited my time and then I got back in the team in January and scored four in four games. Then I didn’t play against Everton away and he (Laudrup) played (winger) Nathan Dyer up front. I thought then my face didn’t fit with the new manager. “I felt in my own mind it was time to move on. I was 27 at the time and I want to play football, I don’t want to sit around, even though I sat around for a few months waiting for my chance and felt I took it when it came. It was basically down to that.” But Graham could not speak highly enough of the support he has received from Bruce and his Hull team-mates during his time at the KC Stadium. “He’s been very good for me since the moment I walked into the club. He keeps reminding me how good a player I am, even though I haven’t scored for a while,” he said. “That makes a difference. It shows he has faith in me which is great. “But it is not just him, it is the other players, the coaching staff and the fans. Everyone has been great so I would like to thank them. “I think you would start doubting yourself if you were not getting those reassurances, but everybody who has been around me, not just the players but my family and everything, have been superb. I have got the goal and I hope we can put this to bed and move on.” Sunderland have the option of recalling Graham from his loan in January should his goal mark the start of a productive spell. But the former Watford, Middlesbrough and Carlisle man hopes to get the chance to continue with the Tigers. “At the minute it is out of my hands,” he said. “I have not spoken to anyone at Sunderland, I have not spoken to the new manager, obviously it was Paolo (Di Canio) who sent me out on loan. “At the minute I am just concentrating on doing well for Hull. As I said the manager showed a lot of faith in me in the time I have been here and I want to repay that. “I think it is a season-long loan, but if there is an option then we will have to see what happens.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Mimosa blooms at Leopardstown

first_img Press Association Third in the Vintage Crop Stakes on her reappearance, the five-year-old was sent off the even-money favourite, and Pat Smullen was happy to slot in just behind the pacesetting Manalapan. The leader battled hard to stay in front, but Smullen drove Pale Mimosa into the lead over a furlong from home and she went on to score cosily. Smullen said: “She’s a very good mare, she showed a bit of a turn of foot there. “I wasn’t sure beforehand where the pace was going to come from, but all I wanted was a lead. When I got it, it was never in doubt. “She’s a little bit delicate and we have to look after her, but when she gets this sort of ground she’s good. “For only her second run of the year, that was a fair performance.” That concluded a double on the card for Weld and Smullen, after Initial just held on in a thrilling finish to the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. The 6/5 favourite looked to have stolen a march on his rivals when pulling clear a furlong out, but newcomer Hunt flew home at the finish, going down by just a nose.

Zacher closing out storied career at UW

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoWisconsin was in Ann Arbor, Mich., April 14, 2002, for a conference matchup with No. 12 Michigan. With the score tied at zero in the top of the third inning, the Badgers’ freshman shortstop came to the plate with a runner on first. After seeing a couple pitches, she promptly deposited the ball deep beyond the left field fence, giving UW a 2-0 lead that would prove to be the final score. For now-senior Kris Zacher, the moment was her way of introducing herself to the Big Ten.“Coach (Gallagher) was all excited, and I didn’t quite understand, but now looking at Michigan and seeing they’re a big powerhouse,” Zacher said. “I guess I’ll always remember that one. It was probably one of my best moments.”Zacher, along with senior catcher Boo Gillette, has represented the core and identity of UW softball for the past four seasons. The Milwaukee native went on to be named the team’s Freshman of the Year in 2002, an appetizer to a career that has been nothing short of remarkable.The team’s co-MVP with Gillette last season, Zacher is making her final rounds through the Big Ten this season after terrorizing the conference for the past three seasons. Forever to be known as one of the most gifted athletes to come through the program, it hasn’t always been easy for Zacher. Then again, that is why she will also be remembered as one of the hardest workers to come through the program. Zacher struggled at the plate her first two seasons, posting solid power numbers but hitting only .253 and .228, respectively, during her freshman and sophomore years. As an upper-classman Zacher made the leap from an ultra-talented player to one of the nation’s top players thanks to some hard work.“It was just a little tweak in my swing,” said Zacher, who saw her average skyrocket to .350 last season, allowing her to more than double her runs scored. “I kept collapsing my back leg and was losing power. In the summer I went and worked on it. I guess you can tell by the stats that it has been beneficial.” The swing adjustment led to Zacher setting the UW single-season hit record and being named to the NFCA All-Mideast Region Second Team. This season Zacher has taken it even a step further, hitting an eye-boggling .407. She is currently on pace to break the team batting average record of .401, set by Julie Bourchard in 1998.“I think she has finally come into her own,” UW head coach Karen Gallagher said. “There is a point where her mental game caught up with her talent and natural ability and things just started to sink in and she realized that she can play at this level.”Zacher has also become the team’s career leader in triples (11) and stolen bases (34), while ranking in the all-time top five in home runs (16), RBI (76), slugging percentage (.424) and batting average (.304). Gallagher calls Zacher one of the best talents she has ever coached.“There is nobody that can do better, she is one of the best players in the country as far as I’m concerned,” Gallagher said. “When she is on, she’s on and there is nobody better.”Zacher has developed into a five-tool player, a player who can hit for average, hit for power, field, steal bases and has a strong throwing arm.“She has been one of the core players of this program,” Gallagher said. “She has played shortstop for four years and has been the foundation of our infield. She just does incredible things.”Despite her talent, according to Zacher her biggest tool has been her work ethic and passion for the game.“I put everything out there every game,” Zacher said. “You never know which pitch, which game might be your last. Your season or career might be cut short with an injury, you never know. Play with every ounce of energy and give everything you have to the team. When I’m out there playing, I give 110 percent.”With Zacher’s career as a Badger player ending after this season, she looks back on her career a little differently than most would.“It’s been a lot of ups and downs, and has been a lot harder than I thought it would be,” Zacher said. “It has definitely been worth it though. Softball teaches you to grow up and deal with adversity and how to work together as a team on and off the field. Softball teaches you a lot of things, not only about softball but about life as well.”Not surprisingly, Zacher’s preferred career path following her playing career involves passing on those lessons. “I hope to coach,” Zacher said. “Hopefully teaching softball to kids and giving back to the game in a different way. I would love to be in college coaching, but you’ve got to know people and be in the system for that so, we’ll see.”With Zacher’s graduation, Gallagher will need to regularly pencil in a new name at shortstop for the first time in four seasons.“Kris has been a pillar here and it’s going to be big shoes to fill whoever comes in and does that,” Gallagher said.last_img read more

PhD student explores minority health disparities

first_imgCatherine Pérez describes herself as a first-generation student in every sense of the word. Photo of Catherine Pérez from USC News.“I’m first-generation … high school graduate, first-generation college, first-generation doctoral program,” she said.Pérez, a Ph.D. candidate studying gerontology at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, is researching health disparities with regard to different social determinants. Though her research is with older adults, the information she has gathered about socioeconomics has allowed her to observe the importance of such issues among first-generation students.She uses population-level data to compare health patterns across demographic indicators. Pérez’s educational background has allowed her to observe patterns that are visible in first-generation students who, when given inadequate support, can find college difficult.Through her research, Pérez has evaluated how inadequate support for first-generation students can make college difficult.“[We must think] about how that chronic stress builds up and how it affects life course outcomes,” she said. “We know that stress is also strongly associated with depression and anxiety and these are issues that lead students to drop out of school and this impacts life chances because education is associated with income, occupational status and health.”When Pérez first began her research, she was interested in delving deeper into the relationship between socioeconomic disadvantages and health.“I read and have done my own research that the association is that being socioeconomically disadvantaged is what affects health,” she said. “Why things are socially patterned the way that they are is basically how it influences [people] and you have to dig deeper looking at association.”The success of first-generation minority students is dependent on available resources, she said.“I think it’s important to point out first-generation students do require more resources at least at the university level just because statistically speaking first-generation students are more likely to be poor compared to [other students] on the campus,” Pérez said. “[They] are also more likely to not have been adequately prepared for college.”She was motivated to pursue this research by her own role as a first-generation student and as a daughter of Puerto Rican and Honduran immigrants.“[I wanted to get] more of that sense, more of that hyper-awareness of how identity really affects health,” Pérez said. Pérez first began exploring her interest in minority groups and health as an undergraduate at UCLA, where she took classes in Chicano studies and health disparities. It was further developed after she took interest in sociology of health and medicine.“I started to see there are these really vast differences in health outcomes,” Pérez said. “I became very interested and concerned because if we’re not in our optimal health how are we supposed to do anything? If you’re sick you can’t work; if you’re sick you can’t help take care of other people; if you’re sick you can’t take time for yourself to develop or find your life purpose.”Pérez’s research is primarily quantitative. She takes secondary data sets from sources like the University of Michigan Health and Retirement Study and the National Center for Health Statistics’ National Health Interview Survey and analyzes them using computer programs such as Stata or Mplus. Usually, she formulates her research questions on variables she is interested in and the story she is trying to tell.“We can make inferences about the population at large,” Pérez said. “We can uncover patterns of what’s going on in our nation’s societies. [I fell in love with] understanding how we can take larger communities of people and understand what is going on at a national level and understand how macro- and micro-level influences are working simultaneously to produce these health differentials that we observe.”Editor’s note: This article has been updated for clarity.last_img read more

Babers said Dungey has ‘just an owie’ headed into Week 4 against UConn

first_imgUPDATED: Sept. 17, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said that starting quarterback Eric Dungey is “OK” after exiting Saturday’s game against Florida State late in the second quarter.Dungey left the 30-7 win over FSU with what Babers described as “blurred vision.” On Dungey’s last play of the game, he was hit in the head after the whistle, and the play resulted in a Seminoles’ personal foul. After the game Babers suggested Dungey’s eye could’ve been struck with a thumb or finger, adding that “things happen in piles.” Comments Published on September 17, 2018 at 2:13 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 Facebook Twitter Google+ Babers on second-year UConn head coach Randy Edsall: “He ripped everything apart. They’re playing a lot of young people and when you do that you may not be successful early but in two years you’re going to be really successful.” Other notes from the press conference: Babers said Monday he has “no concerns” over the hit to the head on Dungey’s final play of the game.“His eye is fine, he was up there watching tape a little while ago with me,” Baber said. “He’s OK and his shoulder is just an owie.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDungey has been nursing what he described as a “cut” on his shoulder since week one against Western Michigan. When asked if Dungey will play against UConn on Sunday, Babers said, “football players play through owies.”At Babers’ weekly Monday morning press conference he also discussed the most notable change to the depth chart headed into week four: Co-starters at running back. For the first three weeks senior running back Dontae Strickland was listed as the starter with junior Moe Neal as the backup.“Those backs are rotating because they’ve got to work through it,” Babers said. “It’s hard to go the whole game with just one guy playing.”Through three games, Neal has carried the ball 57 times for 230 yards and two touchdowns. Strickland has rushed for 109 yards on 33 carries while tallying five touchdowns.Freshman running back Jarveon Howard has also gained touches in recent weeks, including a 45-yard scamper against FSU.“I really don’t like rotating people, I really don’t,” Babers said. “I think if you’re a starter and you have the opportunity to play every snap then go ahead and play as many snaps as you can. When you get tired you owe it to the family to come out.” CORRECTION: In a previous version of this article, Dontae Strickland was misnamed. The Daily Orange regrets this error.  Normally a fan of heat in the Carrier Dome because of its home field advantage, Babers said “You guys are going to get air conditioning. I think it’s going to be nice and cool in there. I’ll probably go in there and shed some tears…I love the Dome the way it is.”last_img read more
