Ferrero set a price and it wasn’t possible to find a meeting point.“We regret that this thing became public and, in some way, affected the morale and results of the team, but we have a clear conscience: in the last 13 months we’ve only made two official announcements, and this is the first time I’ve talked about it personally.“I’m sorry because, apart from the time and energy I’ve invested, I was convinced that I could do a good job with the people already working at the club who, at present, aren’t getting the credit they deserve.“I would’ve worked with passion, courage and humility to represent the people connected to Sampdoria in the best way.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

By the numbers Ohio State fends off late Minnesota comeback stays undefeated

OSU junior running back Ezekiel Elliott is lifted into the air by senior right tackle Chase Ferris following Eillott’s 15-yard touchdown run in a game against Minnesota on Nov. 7 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorOhio State redshirt junior quarterback Cardale Jones took back the reins for the Buckeye offense, and OSU held off a late rally from the Minnesota Golden Gophers to win 28-14 inside Ohio Stadium on Saturday night.Jones played an efficient game, going 12-of-22 passing for 187 yards and a touchdown while adding 65 yards and another touchdown on the ground against a stout Minnesota defense that nearly upset Michigan in its previous game. However, the offense was still never able to find its groove, leaving a lot of people wondering if redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett will take over once again next week at Illinois.In all, the Buckeye offense was able to pile up 376 yards of offense, which featured another strong performance by junior running back Ezekiel Elliott, who added 114 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The Buckeyes, despite being held scoreless once again in the first quarter, scored the first 21 points of the game, but the top performers from Saturday night were unquestionably the entire defensive unit.The Buckeye defense played an excellent game, holding Minnesota to only 33 rushing yards on the night. This forced redshirt junior quarterback Mitch Leidner to make plays through the air. Leidner did up passing for 281 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown by OSU junior safety Vonn Bell. OSU was able to keep the Golden Gophers off the board until the fourth quarter.OSU is scheduled to play its final three regular-season games — two on the road — all against teams with winning records, starting with Illinois last week. Minnesota, after dropping two consecutive games since coach Jerry Kill retired, will hit the road to play at undefeated Iowa next week as it fights to reach bowl eligibility for the year.By the numbers:10 – The current win streak for the Buckeyes over the Golden Gophers.2 – Since 1967, Minnesota has only beaten OSU twice (1981 and 2000).8 and 6 – OSU’s football successes are well known, as it claims eight national titles, the sixth most all time. Minnesota, however, has had some great successes as well and claims six national titles, the eighth most all time.14 – Elliott has now ran for at least 100 yards in 14 straight games, which is the longest active streak in the nation.29 – OSU has now won 29 straight regular-season Big Ten conference games. Not only is it the longest win streak ever in the Big Ten, it is also tied for the longest conference winning streak of all time with Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference.22 – The Buckeyes have now won 22 straight games, which is tied for the second longest winning streak in school history. The longest streak in OSU history is 24 straight wins during Urban Meyer’s first two seasons as head coach. read more

Lampard buzzing after Derbys comeback win

first_imgDerby County manager Frank Lampard is in seventh heaven after his side scored two late goals to win 4-3 at Norwich City on Saturday.Norwich were 3-2 ahead with just nine minutes to go, but Florian Jozefzoon’s 87th-minute goal pulled the game level before Jack Marriott netted in stoppage time to complete the comeback for Frank Lampard’s side.The game was delayed by 25 minutes after a fuse box problem caused a section of the stadium to lose power after Norwich had gone 3-2 up.“It was a game which had everything and I don’t think I have been involved with one like that before,” Lampard told Sky Sports.“I have certainly never gone back to the dressing room and then come back like that before and as a manager, I have never been involved in a game with two late goals like that.Frank Lampard, Chelsea, Premier LeagueFrank Lampard admits Chelsea may struggle for top-six spot Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Chelsea manager Frank Lampard couldn’t offer any guarantees on a top-six finish this season due to the strong competition.“I think the delay worked in our favor because Norwich had just scored their goal and the momentum was with them.It was bad timing for them and good timing for us because it gave us the chance to reorganize things and I thought David Nugent did a superb job when he came on, playing a part in both our goals.“Norwich will be saying they deserved something from the game, and they would have [deserved] a point to be fair, but I think we deserved this for the way we came out after the delay.“The players deserve so much credit for coming away from a tough place like this with three points.”last_img read more
