Mourinho offered £12m to reject Spurs

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tottenham re-signs Bale on loan Real Madrid were desperate for Jose Mourinho not to join Tottenham a fortnight ago, it has been revealed. The Sun says Real were willing to offer Mourinho pre-contract terms worth £12 million to wait for the Madrid job to become available. But the Portuguese had his heart set on Tottenham. And Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who had been harbouring doubts about Mauricio Pochettino since the build-up to June’s Champions League final, rewarded his patience. Real were not the only club whose approaches to Mourinho were in vain. Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Lyon all wanted him, while Chinese outfit Guangzhou Evergrande were willing to pay him £40 million a year after tax. But once Mourinho knew the Tottenham job was in play, he was happy to stall on other options.Tags: Jose MourinhoMauricio PochettinoTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

‘Weatherman’ Daniels forecasted as 1st-day pick

first_imgThe weather is finally starting to clear up for former UW tight end Owen Daniels.After recently receiving his degree in atmospheric and oceanic sciences, Daniels will give up weather and enter the NFL Draft, where he is predicted to go in the first round.”It’s good that people are talking about me at least,” Daniels commented about the discussion of his name for the first round. “I had a couple of injuries this year and I did not exactly have the year I wanted to have, but I finished strong in the last couple of games we had, and that was good for me to do that. Hopefully, I’ll do well at the combine and put up good numbers there.”Daniels finished his final game in cardinal and white in style by scoring a touchdown in the first half at the Capital One Bowl against Auburn. Also during the game, ABC commentators gave Daniels a new moniker, “The Weatherman,” that will most likely follow him into the NFL.”It’s funny,” Daniels said about his new nickname. “It’s good for people who might be interested in a weather guy on TV. They got my name out there, that is for sure.”After Daniels finishes his football career, he plans to fall back on his degree and pursue a career in meteorology. The Weatherman has already had a number of appearances on local Madison TV stations this year.”These past [few] years, I would do weather reports for stations here in Madison, as well as game day forecasts, and they were putting them on TV and a lot of people were seeing that, so that’s good,” Daniels said.A lot of people also saw Daniels’ former teammate Brian Calhoun etch his name into the record books this season by accumulating 144 points and 348 rushing attempts, both UW school records.Like Daniels, Calhoun will also take his talents to the NFL Draft, something Daniels is looking forward too.”It’s exciting,” said Daniels, who caught four touchdowns and 22 passes in 2005. “These next four months are going to be pretty crazy, with workouts and the combine, and then being with teams and interviewing them up to Draft Day, but I’m looking forward to it.”According to About Football, Daniels is ranked seventh among tight ends entering the draft. Vernon Davis from Maryland, Marcedes Lewis from UCLA, Leonard Pope from Georgia, Anthony Fasano of Notre Dame, Dominique Byrd of USC and Joe Klopfenstein of Colorado are all ranked ahead of him.Whatever the case, whether Daniels goes high in the draft or not at all, the future looks sunny for the future Weatherman.last_img read more

Richardson leads Syracuse with strong 2nd-half performance in goal

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ As soon as Duke’s Taylor Trimble scored with 14:52 remaining in the second half, Syracuse goaltender Kelsey Richardson shouted in disgust and whacked her stick on the Carrier Dome turf.But it was a lone moment of obvious frustration during an otherwise authoritative performance between the pipes.Handed a slim 10-7 lead coming out of halftime, Richardson proceeded to string together one of her best halves of the season. She held No. 8 Duke (7-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) scoreless for a key 14-minute stretch and made three big saves as the No. 3 Orange (10-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) slowly pulled away for a 19-15 victory Saturday afternoon.“I wanted to come in and kind of provide that spark for our team,” Richardson said. “To start pulling ahead and getting a larger lead, so I was really focused.”Although the junior netminder allowed a goal by Maddy Morrissey only 57 seconds out of the break, she quickly took control of the SU crease.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOnly two minutes later, she forced the Blue Devils to squander a free position opportunity by maintaining a great angle against Morrissey. Then she did the same against Kerrin Maurer.Duke picked up the rebound, but was unable to do anything with it. Richardson stopped two point-blank shots and the Orange regained possession.Meanwhile, Kailah Kempney and Lisa Rogers aided their goalie with two conversions at the other end, and completely swung momentum in the Orange’s favor.“We try on offense to reward our entire team by putting points up on the board after our defense has a long possession,” attack Alyssa Murray said. “We don’t look at it like, ‘Oh, Let’s try and do something creative.’“We think, ‘Let’s just get it in the back of the net.’”And while the SU offense picked up its pace, the Blue Devils didn’t score again until the 14:52 mark. By that point, SU’s offense had fashioned a commanding 15-8 lead for Richardson to protect.Richardson’s assertive play couldn’t have come at a better time for Syracuse, which struggled to build a lead despite dominating the shot chart and draw circle in the first half.She watched as teammate Alyssa Costantino surrendered seven goals and made only one save during the first 30 minutes. All the while, she knew that head coach Gary Gait would call her number in the latter frame.“I’m there first half for Alyssa (Costantino) and hope she does the best she can and cheer her on,” Richardson said. “In the back of my mind of course, I’m saying, ‘Focus,’ for when I come in the second half.”That focus was apparent as the clock slowly ticked away. She foiled yet another free position opportunity and intercepted a Morrissey pass for good measure midway through the period.She didn’t allow another goal until Maurer cut the Duke deficit to eight with only 7:56 remaining in the game. By that point, Gait had begun to trickle in subs from the SU bench, something he didn’t expect against a talented conference foe.“Our core players provided a lot of opportunities for those other players,” Gait said. “It’s great for some of the younger players to get in there when that happens against a Top-10 team. It’s just awesome.”Once the game ended, Richardson was met with a high-five from Kaeli O’Connor and congratulations from the rest of her teammates.The anger following her miscue against Trimble had been replaced by a huge smile, one that signified a satisfying performance against a hated opponent.“I’ve never liked Duke since I’ve grown up,” Richardson said. “So it was just extra motivation for me I guess.” Comments Published on March 29, 2014 at 7:54 pm Contact Tyler: [email protected]last_img read more
