Attention in the immediate aftermath of Tuesday’s game centred on the contentious sending-off of United winger Nani, an incident which changed the nature of the game as Real came from behind to win. Since then the focus has shifted to Rooney, with his surprise omission sparking intense speculation he could leave the club this summer. All of the national newspapers have carried stories claiming that, after more than eight years of often brilliant service for United, the 27-year-old England could move on. Rooney’s former England manager Steve McClaren, who worked as Ferguson’s assistant from 1999-2001, is shocked by these suggestions and believes too much is being read into the selection. McClaren, national boss between 2006 and 2007, told Sky Sports News: “It is premature and obviously stirred up by the media. Everyone is looking for controversy and some like to find it in the selection Sir Alex made. “I wouldn’t say he (Rooney) was dropped. I would say this was well planned, weeks and weeks ahead. Wayne Rooney would have known this decision was coming. He will have explained the reasons to Wayne Rooney why he was not playing, when he will be playing next, what he expects and what he expects in the next game. “That is what he has done in the past, that is what I expect he has done on this occasion. That is how he keeps the squad happy and everybody on board. Wayne Rooney will be a big player for Manchester United to come.” The club and the player’s representatives have not commented on the speculation but Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea could offer indication as to whether Rooney remains in Ferguson’s long-term plans. Press Association Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to face questions about Wayne Rooney and his side’s controversial Champions League exit as he meets the media on Friday morning. Ferguson has not given his reaction to events on Tuesday night at Old Trafford, when 10-man United were beaten by Real Madrid and star striker Rooney was only among the substitutes. The Scot did not fulfil post-match media obligations – something for which he faces a UEFA charge – with assistant Mike Phelan saying he was too “distraught” to speak. His thoughts will now be keenly sought as he hosts a regular press conference to preview this weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final meeting with Chelsea.
Press Association QPR manager Harry Redknapp felt his side lost their belief as soon as they conceded against Everton and admits their 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park leaves them in a precarious position. He added: “Once we went 1-0 down we seemed to lose a bit of belief. We were indisciplined – kicking the ball away and getting two bookings. But you have to keep going. What else can you do? You can’t give up and you have to keep believing but it is getting more and more difficult, obviously. “It is hard but what can I say? I can’t say we are down. If it happens, it happens.” While Redknapp contemplates the dreaded drop, Everton counterpart David Moyes has seen his side move to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea, with Tuesday’s opponents Arsenal just one point further ahead. The victory keeps the Toffees’ Champions League dreams alive for now, but Moyes knows their destiny is far from decided. “I think if we can go and win at Arsenal then I think you might say we’ve got a chance of being involved in the Champions League,” he said. “If we don’t, I think you’re probably going to say that we’ve got a chance of making the Europa League. “So no matter what happens at Arsenal, the players have given themselves a great chance. We’ve been doing it for most of the season. Why would it change in the last five or six games? “I expect the players to go and keep picking up victories and trying to win every game if we can.” A deflected Darron Gibson strike and Victor Anichebe’s neat hooked finish five minutes either side of half-time kept the Toffees in the hunt for the top four but also ushered their visitors towards the Barclays Premier League exit door. Second-bottom QPR remain seven points from safety with only five matches left. “I am disappointed. I thought the first half was going okay, there was nothing in it,” a resigned-sounding Redknapp said. “There was a wicked deflection for the goal but I felt we came in 1-0 down feeling sorry for ourselves and then we started the second half sloppy.”

Wisconsin beat Penn State to earn a berth in the Big 10 Championship game in Indianapolis against Michigan State. Montee Ball closed in on the NCAA record for the single most touchdowns in a season with 34 touchdowns behind Barry Sanders with 39.
In the first half, Arizona lived up to its title as one of college basketball’s elite scoring offenses. The Wildcats had the Trojans scrambling by shooting over 50% from the field and draining four 3-pointers in the first 10 minutes of the game. Even after an 8-0 run by USC, Arizona led at the half 33-23. “We had trouble stopping them,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “They physically and athletically hurt us in the first half on the boards, got some easy baskets and we had some really dumb turnovers. We had live ball turnovers that turned into transition baskets, so that hurt us and gave them the opportunity to get out in front.” USC will head to Desert Financial Arena to face off against Arizona State Saturday in Tempe. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. The deficit expanded in the second half with Arizona gaining a 15-point lead by forcing four turnovers in the first three minutes out of the break. As for USC’s other top freshmen, guard Ethan Anderson and forward Isaiah Mobley took a step back Thursday, logging only single-digit scoring performances that left Arizona’s defense unfazed. “Our league is very good this year top to bottom,” Enfield said in an interview with 790 KABC. “The home court means so much in this league so we battled tonight and we’re going to go battle Saturday and play a little more efficiently.” Senior forward Nick Rakocevic’s 18 points and seven rebounds were not enough to will the Trojans to victory. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) With less than a minute to go, USC cut Arizona’s lead to 5 with key threes from senior guards Daniel Utomi and Jonah Mathews. Unfortunately for the Trojans, the effort was not enough to complete the comeback attempt. By the end of the game, the Wildcats had converted 18 points off turnovers while only allowing six turnovers themselves. Freshman forward Onyeka Okongwu led USC with 23 points scored over 37 minutes, the second most minutes he has played all season. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) Arizona freshman guard Josh Green was explosive offensively for Arizona, logging 18 points and shooting 50% from the field. USC freshman forward Onyeka Okongwu acted as USC’s crutch for the majority of the game and led the team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks. All eyes were on Okongwu’s matchup with one of the NCAA’s other top centers, Arizona freshman Zeke Nnaji. Both came into the game averaging more than 16 points and eight rebounds per game and are first-round prospects in the upcoming NBA Draft. In the end, Okongwu edged out Nnaji on the stat sheet, scoring 23 points on 64% shooting to Nnaji’s 18 and 46%, though Nnaji’s 11 rebounds won him the rebounding battle. The USC men’s basketball team fell to No. 23 Arizona 85-80 in Tucson Thursday night. The loss dropped the Trojans’ road record to 4-3 and the team’s overall record to 17-6. It also continues a 13-year winless streak at McKale Center for USC. Still, with 10 minutes left, the Trojans found a way to keep themselves in the game. Senior forward Nick Rakocevic helped cut Arizona’s lead to single digits through the combination of a 14-point explosion in the second half and a defensive effort that prevented Arizona from scoring a field goal for the game’s final eight minutes. Even after multiple timeouts to stop the Wildcats’ momentum, the Trojans still could not produce an effective offensive strategy for much of the second half. This, coupled with a lack of offensive rebounds, gave USC a tough hole to dig itself out of, trailing by as much as 20 in the second half.
Share Submit The controversial cancelling of antepost bets by BetBright when the Irish based operator closed down earlier this month is to be rectified after the stepping in of Gibraltar-based bookmaker BetVictor. Acting in a ‘personal capacity’, former BetBright Executive Chairman Rich Ricci has partnered with BetVictor to announce a plan which will enable former BetBright customers to have their Ante Post bets reinstated.Former BetBright customers that had Ante Post bets (excluding Cheltenham Festival) voided when BetBright ceased offering gambling services on 5th March 2019, may now choose to have their bets reinstated with BetVictor by 4 April. To do so, customers will be required to have a valid account with BetVictor. Commenting on the partnership, Rich Ricci said: “I am pleased that with the help of BetVictor, Ante Post bets placed by BetBright customers can be honoured.” Director of Sportsbook at BetVictor, Matt Scarrott said: “We’re happy to be supporting Rich to address this situation, enabling former BetBright punters to reinstate their Ante Post bets via our BetVictor betting platform – we’ll make the process as simple and frictionless as possible to provide customers with an enjoyable betting experience with us.”The cancelling of antepost bets proved hugely controversial after BetBright shuttered its operations the same week that it sold its technology stack to 888 for £15m. While 888 eventually agreed to honour Cheltenham antepost bets, given the festival was imminent, the antepost bets on other sports were unceremoniously cancelled as BetBright would no longer be licensed. The issue was further inflamed by the Gambling Commission seemingly rubber stamping the move. It also emboldened 188bet to take a similar if less harsh approach to its antepost book when closing its UK & Ireland operations earlier this week.The fact that BetVictor has been able to come to the rescue, and presumably pick up some active customers and goodwill into the deal, has got the UK Gambling Commission off the hook a little, but it appears that the regulator needs to have a think about its position on this in the near future.

A Former Deputy Education and Sports Minister in the Kuffour led administration, Osei Bonsu Amoah says the only way government will only invest in the sport sector if only the Ministry bids and host major tournaments as it was in the NPP era.According to him, the sports Ministry on its own can never build sports facilities in the country if government does not release funds. He believes that if Ghana is really into sports development, then the country should have had Sports Complexes in all the ten regions so as to promote sporting activities.The Member of Parliament (MP) for Akuapim-North has advised the sports ministry to pile pressurize on the sitting government to invest more into sports by bidding for competitive tournaments which will push government to raise funds to build infrastructures. “The government will only pump money into sports and develop sports infrastructures if we try to bid for some major tournaments, the Ministry should force the government to invest in sports. The way to force them (government) is to organize competitions, with that the government has no choice than to invest in sports,” he said on Asempa fmHe also disclosed that the Kuffour led Administration almost bided for 2015 All African Games.
Dembélé’s credit at Barça is exhausted. The Catalan club has already warned the player that the third year was his last chance. That he should improve his performance on the field, limit his injuries and improve his habits off the field. For whatever reason, that has not happened. It’s more. It has been Dembélé’s worst season at Barça. The Catalan player has played 9 games out of 37 possible, 492 minutes out of 3,330 possible (14.77%). In the previous two seasons, he had played 23.7% and 46.35% of the minutes respectively. In total, Dembélé has played 75 games out of 154 possible and 4,215 minutes out of 13,860 possible. Since he has been at Barça, then, he has only played 30% of the minutes, an unsustainable amount for such an expensive incorporation.Barça would be left without credibility if it sustains one more season with the French under the supposed illusion that it breaks as a player. Among other things, because when he has been on the field of play, and except for specific moments, Dembélé has not been a determining player either.. At least, not continuously. If he fails to sell it, a circumstance more than possible due to its poor performance, a loan like Philippe Coutinho’s last season is not ruled out. At the moment, Dembélé is still in his limbo. Ousmane Dembélé (15-5-1977) has been teleworking much longer than his colleagues. Operated on February 11 of his tenth injury as a Barça player, a rupture of the proximal tendon of the femoral biceps of his right thigh, the Frenchman has accumulated almost a year of absence (344 days) since he arrived at the Barça club in the summer of 2017 . In fact, his six-month low forecast projects his days to 514 days without being able to work for the Barça club. An outrage for a footballer that cost 105 million euros plus 40 in variables.Dembélé lives in a sporting limbo even in these days when the uncertainty of the calendar allows many injured stars, Luis Suárez or Hazard among them, to get excited about the possibility of reappearing before the end of the season. For French that is impossible. Dembélé’s official discharge time is six months, so he will not be able to return to the playing fields officially until August.
MELBOURNE, Australia (CMC):All-rounder Dwayne Bravo says he is still committed to playing for the West Indies, but was forced to quit Test cricket because of the poor treatment meted out to him by selectors.Speaking ahead of his campaign in the Big Bash League for Melbourne Renegades, Bravo told media here that with little interest coming from selectors, he had turned his attention to the lucrative Twenty20 leagues across the globe.”Until earlier this year, I was still interested to play Test cricket, but I have yet to hear anything from any selector, what their plans are for me, what my position is,” Bravo lamented.”I just decided it’s time to move on with my life and try to channel my energy in different places. I would have loved the opportunity to play Test cricket again, but since being dropped back in 2010, I never got the chance and I just decided to call it a day.”He continued: “I’m not shutting down my opportunities to represent the West Indies. I still, 100 per cent, want to play for the West Indies in one-day internationals and T20s.”The 32-year-old played the last of his 40 Tests five years ago after scoring 2,200 runs at an average of 31 and taking 86 wickets at an average of nearly 40. Following this protracted absence from the side, Bravo announced his retirement from the longer format in January this year.Ousted as captainHe was appointed one-day captain in 2013, but axed a year and a half later after he helped lead the players’ fight against the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies Players’ Association, which resulted in the controversial abandoned tour of India.Bravo said many West Indies players felt more respected outside of the Caribbean and this was behind their decision to ply their trade in tournaments like the Big Bash.”I get frustrated at times, not only for myself, but for all the other cricketers – Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell. We all want to represent West Indies,” Bravo said.”But, sometimes, the way we have been treated over the years … why should we actually fight with West Indies’ cricket when the rest of the world opens their arms for us?”Yes, they pay us well, but at the same time, we never feel disrespect in any way when we play for those teams around the world. We feel loved. We feel well-respected. Do we get that type of treatment back in the region? No, we don’t.”With the ICC T20 World Cup slated to bowl off in March next year, Bravo said he was taking nothing for granted about his selection.”I would love to think that I would be good enough and have done enough to get selected for the T20 World Cup, but I’m not saying anything. I don’t know,” he mused.
