But what about at centre-half, the position where he made his name in junior football?“If you’re a Manchester City who really own possession, he could be a great centre-half. But for West Ham, he’s a No.4.“If he was at City he could play centre-half, like John Stones, 100 percent. If you’re possession based, you’ve got to be as good as a midfielder.“Even goalkeepers now, they need to be able to play a ball, have vision.” last_img read more

Those at the Santiago Bernabeu have now won the race for the forward’s signature, with Jovic tied to a deal through to the summer of 2025.A brief statement from the Liga giants on their official website read: “Real Madrid CF and Eintracht Frankfurt have agreed to the transfer of player Luka Jovic, pending a medical examination. “The player will be tied to the club for the next six seasons, until June 30, 2025.”Real were expected to spend big this summer after enduring a testing 2018-19 campaign.It is suggested that they have parted with around €70 million (£62m/$79m) in order to bring in Jovic.Luka Jovic Eintracht Frankfurt 2018-19They had to dig deep to get a deal over the line as Eintracht only recently pushed through a permanent deal of their own for the promising frontman.The Bundesliga outfit took up a purchase option in the loan agreement which saw him star for them across a two-season stay from Benfica.An immediate profit has been made, although those in Germany are disappointed to be bidding farewell to the player who impressed so much during his time in the Bundesliga.Frankfurt’s sporting director Fredi Bobic has said: “Luka Jovic is a big loss for us.”His explosiveness and scoring skills have spread throughout Europe and we’ve benefited not only from his goals over the past two years. “But for us it was clear that there is a financial pain threshold.”For Eintracht Frankfurt this is a good and important transfer. We wish Luka only the best for his future. “He has the best qualifications for a great career. And we are proud that we were able to support him along the way.”Jovic will join an attacking pool of talent in the Spanish capital that includes Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz.He will be hoping to hit the ground running in La Liga, with Zidane’s side in need of inspiration from somewhere as they seek to get back on the trophy trail in 2019-20.last_img read more

Reports suggest that while the Eagles rejected a bid worth £50 million ($63m) for their star, United will return with an improved offer. The defender’s absence for international duty obviously presents certain difficulties in closing any deal, but Boothroyd is not concerned about the issue causing potential disruption in his squad.”It seems like it’s been going on for a long time,” the coach said in reference to Wan-Bissaka’s transfer saga.”We had a similar situation in Poland last time with Jordan Pickford, a lot of speculation.”Everton agreed the deal they worked very closely with us, they were very respectful in terms of not getting involved in our training and our build-up and in the end it was done – with the medicals in a hotel down the road away from everybody else.”If that was to happen we certainly wouldn’t be blocking anybody, we’d be talking to people and seeing if we can help out in any way provided both clubs were happy with it.”If that happens we’ll oblige. and if it doesn’t suit us then we’ll find a time when it does.”Amid that intense speculation, Wan-Bissaka hit the headlines for the wrong reasons in England’s Euro bow after a late own goal gifted France a 2-1 victory.”He’s disappointed obviously with the way that the own goal turned out,” Boothroyd added.”With all the noise that’s surrounding him at the minute you can imagine if you and I were in that position we’d probably be a lot different to what he is.”He’s very calm, he’s very measured, he doesn’t say a great deal but if he plays tomorrow night I’m expecting the same sort of focus, the same sort of energy and I expect him to bounce back.”last_img read more

There are currently nine bids from 10 countries for the rights to host the 2023 finals.Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa and South Korea/North Korea (joint bid) are the official bidders.A total of 37 FIFA board members will participate in the vote for their country of choice in a secret ballot (which is a different format to the voting process for the 2026 men’s World Cup).Asia has hosted the tournament twice, in 1991 and 2007, both in China.

He was pretty honest.“Nov. 24, the better team won,” Harbaugh said on his Attack The Day podcast. “Ohio State was the better team. Congratulations to them. Had that been a week later or week earlier, the result might have been reversed.”Harbaugh fell to 0-4 against Ohio State with the loss on Saturday. He’s the first Michigan coach to reach that mark.The Wolverines’ head coach added:“They played better on that day. There’s things in life where they don’t go your way. It almost seems like sometimes life is testing you. I believe the strong end up surviving and the weak end up keep having that happen to them the rest of their lives.”Michigan will learn where it’s heading in the postseason on Sunday. The Wolverines are believed to be a strong candidate for a New Year’s Six game.last_img read more

He thinks the Texas Longhorns have what it takes to win a national title this season.Earlier in the week, Herbstreit revealed his picks for the College Football Playoff.Herbie picked Texas to win the Big 12, Alabama to win the SEC, Clemson to win the ACC and Ohio State to win the Big Ten.In the playoff, he picked Alabama to defeat Texas and Clemson to beat Ohio State, setting up a national title game between Alabama and Clemson – again. He then has the Tide getting revenge for last year’s last in the title game.So while he thinks the Longhorns have what it takes to compete for it all this season, he clearly doesn’t think they’re ready just yet.Making the College Football Playoff would be a huge step in the right direction though.last_img read more

The tie is scheduled for September.”I am confident we will be cleared to go to Pakistan. We have been drawn to play them in their den. If we can’t go, we will be banned for two years,” AITA secretary general Hironmoy Chatterjee told IANS over phone.The winner will move to the World Group Qualifiers.Chatterjee’s confidence stems from the fact that Pakistan were allowed to take part in the Hockey World Cup here recently. “Pakistan were in Bhubaneswar (Hockey World Cup) and likewise we will travel to their country,” he said.When pointed out that the government has not allowed the Indian cricket team to travel to Pakistan for any bilateral series, Chatterjee said: “Cricket is not an Olympic sport. Tennis is an Olympic sport and this is the World Cup of tennis. The ITF (International Tennis Federation) decides the venue and we have been drawn to play in Pakistan, and we will go.”No Indian Davis Cup squad has travelled to Pakistan since March 1964. In that tie in Lahore, India had prevailed over their rivals 4-0.”It will be difficult for us then (if India is banned) to get back to the World Group. We share a good relation with the Pakistan Tennis Federation and have no problems in travelling,” he said, rubbishing reports that the tie might be held on a neutral venue.advertisementThe draw for the tie took place in London.In the last week’s World Group Qualifier, India were beaten 3-1 by Italy at the Calcutta South Club here.Chatterjee further said Pakistan will decide the venue and the surface by June 25 and send the nomination to India, after which the AITA will arrange for visas for players and coaching staff.This is an away tie for India since the last time the two nations had met in Mumbai. India had then won the tie 3-2. Before that, India and Pakistan played at a neutral venue in Malaysia in 1973.Current non-playing captain Mahesh Bhupathi was part of the team, which also had Leander Paes, Prakash Amritraj and Rohan Bopanna who is still part of India’s plans. Bopana with doubles partner Divij Sharan won the only rubber against Italy.”It’s a good draw for us. We would like to believe we are the stronger side. Prajnesh is doing well in the ATP challengers and Yuki (Bhambri) is recovering from injury. Ramkumar Ramanathan is expected to continue his surge. We will have three players inside top 150, which has not happened in the Indian tennis for a long time,” India coach Zeeshan Ali told IANS.Ali did not comment on the team’s Pakistan travel plan, saying they have no problem in playing anywhere and on any surface as long as they get the green signal.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

NASCAR Driver Brad Keselowski on Crashing, Winning, and Creating a Legacy Editors’ Recommendations A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America Raleigh Denim Workshop Makes Jeans with Artistry and Ingenuity in the U.S.A. center_img What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable Why Every Man Should Care About Slow Fashion It has been a landmark month for Denver’s Sully & Co. This 1,000-sq.-foot specialty menswear boutique that carries made in America brands exclusively celebrated its one-year anniversary last week and just launched its e-commerce shop. Here, its owner, Mark Snipe, a former New York-based fashion-industry insider, discusses its initial success, terrific brand mix and what sets it apart from other guys’ shops in the Mile-High City.What is the background of Sully & Co?It just turned a year old on October 5. I lived in New York and I had worked for Ralph Lauren and was working for Lacoste and my girlfriend wanted a better quality of life. I frankly didn’t understand because what’s better than New York City? We happened to have family out here and Denver seemed to be a really good city to start a small business. I love clothing and the idea was to offer some simple, elegant solutions for the American male. As the idea continued to percolate I decided that I wanted it to be only American made product. So we got to Denver and opened the shop.And the reception to the store has been good?Yeah. I think Denver is not well served from that perspective. This has been a shop that people will go to if they don’t want to go to the mall. We are fortunate in that respect because less and less people want to go to the mall because they want a very curated store.What sets you apart from the other stores in the area?In Denver there are probably six or seven menswear stores and you have four stores that have opened in the last two or three years and then you have two or three historical ones that have been here for 30 or 40 years. We are kind of like the new kids on the block and we are all offering something that is a little bit different. We call the store “urban preppy” so it’s more denim with a sport jacket and button-down shirt and pocket squares and lapel pins. So for us it’s more of the bridge between stuff you can wear to work as well as out to drinks.What brands do you carry?On the denim side we carry Raleigh Denim, Shokoe and Baldwin Denim. And for other bottoms we carry Grown & Sewn. And we’ve worked with Southwick for our clothing. They are an old, venerable clothing company. And we have Hertling, which is out of Greenpoint in Brooklyn and they make trousers. And then there is a company called Haspell. And we work with a local designer called Wolfhill Brand. He’s great and he does small leather goods and belts. And a company called Dapper Classics for socks. We have about 10 to 15 different brands.What prompted you to carry American made brands only?I feel like we need to bring money back into the country and get the middle class back up and running and part of that is manufacturing. We shipped all of our manufacturing jobs overseas in the mid ’80s. And I feel like it is my little part to kind of mitigate that. There’s a lot of pride that goes into this stuff and I think there’s more and more American manufacturing taking place and while it’s still not a lot I think that the folks who participate in it take a lot of pride in it and it comes through in the product.How important is that to you to your typical customer or do you even have a typical customer?There is a range of customers. Some come in specifically because it is American made and whenever we greet a customer we tell them that our product is made in America and they appreciate it. I’ve only had one customer respond diffidently and he was a young guy who said, “That doesn’t matter to me.” Everyone else has been positive and has responded well.What is the price range of the items in the store?Not including socks, which are $22 to $35, the basic denim is $250 to $285 and sport jackets are $750 to $895.Do you offer special services?We do complimentary basic tailoring. If a guy needs his jeans or trousers hemmed we will take care of that. We also work with Southwick for made to measure. And we do special orders with our shirts. Denver is a pretty athletic and active town. We have a lot of guys with athletic builds who can’t fit into a normal shirt. So we have a pretty vibrant special order business.Where does the store’s name come from?Sully is my dog. We were in a park with some marketing guys and we were throwing out a bunch of names and decided “Sully and Co” had some kind of sophistication but is also welcoming. So Sully is my dog… and I am the company.last_img read more
