I really don’t.”I think Maddison has another level to go. I think there’s a top team, if it’s not Liverpool then United maybe, they’ll be in for him. He can only get better.”Jurgen loves up and at them players, 100 per cent, non-stop work rate. He knows his full backs can create a chance, the space and can go for an overlap.”I don’t see Maddison sitting on the bench [at a big club]. Say he comes to Liverpool, I’m not telling James Maddison to leave, but if I’m Klopp I would be looking to sign a player.”He’s young, he’s English, he’s got a lot going for him. He changes the tempo of the game, why wouldn’t he get in Liverpool’s midfield?”Henderson has been getting replaced for ever with Milner, Keita has not come on leaps and bounds, Fabinho is the holding midfield player.”There’s a position there for him. If he came and he knuckled down, and he got his work ethic sorted, I see no reason why he wouldn’t fit in.” last_img read more

first_imgLaquon Treadwell gets letter from fan following his injury.IG/successfulquonOne of our least favorite moments of the 2014 college football season was the devastating leg injury to Ole Miss star receiver Laquon Treadwell during a brutal loss to Auburn. Treadwell, who was inches away from scoring a huge touchdown against the Tigers, suffered a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle and fumbled the ball at the goal line. Treadwell is one of the most charismatic and popular players on the Rebels, and he received tons of fan support during his rehab. Today, Treadwell posted a picture of some of the letters he received from young fans who are excited that he is ready to hit the field once again in 2015.We’re glad that Treadwell has recovered as well. There are few more exciting wide receivers in the sport.last_img read more

first_imgFollowing Ohio State’s loss to Michigan State on Saturday night, Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott made some headlines after criticizing his coaching staff for its play-calling against the Spartans. Since, he’s been receiving a great deal of criticism – many have even suggested that he be benched for the team’s game against Michigan this Saturday.Well, Zeke has responded on Twitter. First, he retweeted a number of quotes that reflect his interview in a more positive light. He then joked that he’s now the “big bad wolf.” Clearly, he thinks he’s being treated a bit unfairly.ezekiel elliott tweets after postgame interviewI guess I’m the big bad wolf now lol— EzekielElliott#⃣1⃣5⃣ (@EzekielElliott) November 22, 2015Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer hasn’t addressed Elliott’s comments yet – but we imagine he will during his weekly press conference Monday.

first_imgGonzalo Higuain has been left out of Milan’s squad to face Genoa, with head coach Gennaro Gattuso effectively confirming the Argentina striker has decided he wants to join Chelsea.Higuain came off the bench during the second half of the Supercoppa Italiana defeat to Juventus last time out – a decision Gattuso attributed to the player suffering from a virus.He was not listed when Milan tweeted their 23-man travelling party for Monday’s match at Stadio Luigi Ferraris and, at a subsequent news conference, Gattuso questioned Higuain’s professionalism and insisted recent speculation had taken its toll with Milan managing two wins in their past eight outings.

We had a poor training session today due to all these rumours,” Gattuso said.”We spoke after the training session and I did not consider him [Higuain] ready for this game.”I accept his decision. Surely he could have done more and maybe we could have helped him fit in better.”Right now we have to work with professionalism and determination, all these rumours have not helped us lately and we have to look ahead.”I am more worried about how to transmit calmness to the players and how to field the best team.

The Spain striker has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.During his final season under Sarri at Napoli in 2015-16, Higuain set a Serie A scoring record with 36 goals in 35 top-flight appearances.last_img read more
