first_imgWhen it comes to picking your squad number, players come up with all sorts of reasons why they want a specific number. From choosing their lucky number to that of their football idol, there’s usually a specific reason why a player will request a particular number.For Christian Eriksen and Inter Milan, it appears he’s chosen the number as a massive middle finger to former club Tottenham.The Danish midfielder joined Inter from Tottenham today, bringing an end to his seven-year spell at Spurs and the saga that has followed him since last summer.Embed from Getty ImagesHe’s picked the number 24 at his new club, according to Sky Sports Italy, and most would have assumed this was a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant, who wore that number for the LA Lakers.However, Sky Italia claim Eriksen had chosen the number before Bryant’s tragic passing this week, and the reason behind his choice is not one of homage, but a last attempt to throw shade at his former club.According to them, Eriksen has chosen 24 as he considers Inter ‘a step ahead’ of Tottenham and an ‘improvement’ in his career and thus he’s chosen his new shirt number to represent that.That’s unlikely to go down well with Tottenham, who at this point are probably quite pleased they’ve gotten rid of Eriksen and made a reasonable price on him at the same time.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendEveryone with Bad Vision Needs Those Revolutionary Adjustable Glasses!Smart Tech TrendUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

first_imgWhen Thomas Partey’s father seemingly confirmed negotiations with Arsenal today, his quotes created a big fuss in the Spanish and English media. Speaking to a radio station in Ghana, Jacob Partey said talks were ongoing, suggested a deal was on the way, and said he’d be happy to see his son sign for the Gunners.But it turns out that soon after the international media started covering the story, the midfielder’s representatives came out denying these talks.JJSports, who manage his career, are now quoted by Marca saying: “This is all fake”.Marca, just like other Spanish outlets, continue their report saying Arsenal aren’t even in contact with Atletico Madrid so far.It’s claimed that the only talks actually taking place are for the player to extend his contract with the La Liga side. Partey’s current deal expires in 2023, and the Colchoneros are lookin to protecting him with a new deal.One of the reasons is to change his current €50m release clause.There’s a possibility the agency are trying keep Atletico happy, otherwise Partey Sr hasn’t been telling the truth.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

first_imgThat is, in essence, what Gazzetta dello Sport allude to on Thursday, claiming that while keeping the Manchester United loanee next season is a ‘luxury’ for Inter, it’s one they could be convinced of succumbing to.Why the next 20 days? Because that’s the timeframe of the Serie A club’s next seven games (six in the league and one against Getafe) before his loan extension expires.In that time, the forward needs to ‘show continuity’ following his impressive displays in the past couple of games.If he does, he would then prove to Inter he is ‘someone they can rely on’.Embed from Getty ImagesBut what about the nature of his stay? Gazzetta explain it’s ‘unlikely’ Manchester United will respond positively to a new loan offer, and ‘it’s more likely that an agreement will be sought on a definitive transfer’.The main issue is Ed Woodward’s initial demands of ‘above €20m’, meaning Inter ‘will have to make a financial effort’ and ‘will have to set it up quickly’.Why? Because they’re worried of ‘being burned by other potential buyers’, since a sale ‘elsewhere’ would mean Sánchez wouldn’t take part in their hopeful run to the Europa League trophy.The clock is ticking, but there’s hope Manchester United ‘may have the same interest in closing as soon as possible’, which would then allow Inter to enter talks with the player himself to try and ‘spread his wages’ over his potential future contract with them.To summarise, the two clubs have 20 days to sort something out before the current loan expires, and it’s up to Sánchez to hold up his end of the bargain during that timeframe, meaning he needs to play well to prove to Inter he’s a worthwhile investment.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoStudent SeaKate Middleton’s Daring Outfit Took Prince William’s Breath AwayStudent SeaUndoCar Novels[Photos] Waffle House Waitress Didn’t Know She Was Recorded While She Served This CostumerCar NovelsUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoMake Money Online | Search AdsDo You Want To Make Money Online?

first_imgGeorgetown Cricket Club (GCC) romped to a six-wicket win over Malteenoes Sports Club on Sunday at the Eve Leary Ground in the Georgetown Cricket Association Noble House Seafoods Generation Next Under-19 tournament. GCC won the toss and invited Malteenoes to bat who posted 200-9 in their 50 overs after the contest was reduced from a 55-45 over affair to 50-40 overs. GCC then replied with 201-4 in 37.4 overs.Malteenoes were indebted to important cameos from the middle order including Akeem Critchlow and Shamar Yearwood who shared in a 54-run second wicket stand. Critchlow’s 33-ball 26 was foiled by a direct hit from Mavindra Dindyal while Yearwood’s patient knock of 21 from 57 balls ended when he was bowled by Dindyal.Mervyn Permaul top scored with 27 that resisted an attacking GCC bowling side with Keon Wright snatching three quick wickets to bring his side back into the contest after Jeremiah Scott (24) had put on 52 for the fourth wicket with Permaul. Wright ended with 3-54 while Rivaldo Phillips, Zachary Jodah and Dindyal returned one wicket a piece as GCC gifted Malteenoes five dropped catches.In reply, an even half century from Thaddeous Lovell and 40 from his opening partner, Andsuegga Rodrigues got GCC off to a blistering start.Rodrigues was the aggressor in the 86-run partnership, striking two sixes and three fours, one of which dissected the fielders through cover prior to him being dropped on 30. After Rodrigues was snapped up by Scott off the bowling of Permaul, Lovell took his aggression to the spinners, using his feet well and chipping down the track to dispatch two sixes onto the pavilion off of Brandon Butchey.Dindyal returned to stroke 28 before being given out leg before wicket attempting to sweep as Malteenoes fought their way back into the contest with two quick wickets but their fate was inevitably sealed with Carlos Pollard flicking Scott into the square leg boundary to finish the match.last_img read more

first_imgTOKYO (Reuters) – Tennis star Naomi Osaka has taken steps to give up her U.S. citizenship to play for Japan in the 2020 Olympics, Japanese media said yesterday. The 21-year-old, born in Japan to a Haitian father and Japanese mother but raised in the United States, told NHK it will be special for her to represent host Japan at the Tokyo Games, the public broadcaster said.Osaka, who will turn 22 on Wednesday, faced that deadline to relinquish one nationality because neither Japan nor the United States permits dual citizenship for adults.The Japanese Olympic Committee and a U.S.-based agent for Osaka in the United States could not immediately be reached outside business hours. Japan, which has long prided itself on being homogeneous, is becoming more ethnically diverse. But prejudice remains against “haafu”, or half-Japanese, including cases of bullying against mixed-race children.And while Japan has largely embraced Osaka, she still faces some indignities.Two weeks ago, Osaka laughed off comments by a Japanese comedy duo who said she was “too sunburned” and “needed some bleach”, and turned the tables with a plug for Japanese cosmetic giant Shiseido, one of her sponsors. In January, Japanese noodle company Nissin removed a commercial in which a cartoon character depicting Osaka was shown with pale skin and light brown hair, after it prompted an outcry.last_img read more
