Rooney will have point to prove against Man Utd, says Solskjaer

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United great Wayne Rooney will be a threat in Thursday’s FA Cup clash against Championship side Derby.Advertisement Loading… Rooney, United and England’s all-time top scorer, will line up against the club where he enjoyed so much success when lining up for the Rams at Pride Park.Rooney joined the second-tier side as player-coach after a stint in the United States with DC United and former team-mate Solskjaer is wary of the 34-year-old’s threat in the fifth-round clash.“He gave absolutely everything for this club and we all appreciate that,” the Norwegian manager said. “But any goal he scores against us will be chalked off his goal tally. He doesn’t want to score too many of them.“He’s a threat, in and around the box, set plays, and of course this game Wayne will show what he can do and he wants to prove that there’s still fight in an old dog.“We’ve got to be on our toes, don’t give him any space in and around the box or in midfield.”“At the latter end when he played in midfielder, you can see he’s got Scholesy-like passing range,” he added, in reference to former United midfielder Paul Scholes.Read Also: Man United get Marcus Rashford injury boostAsked if Rooney is underappreciated in some quarters, the United boss said: “He’s been a fantastic player for Man United and he played here for so long, he’s the club’s top scorer, he’s won so many trophies.“For me, I don’t think the fans underrated him. I think everyone really, really appreciates what he did for us.“He’s still very welcome, he’s still around the place, he still comes to Old Trafford.

Football legends pick the best between Ronaldo and Messi

first_img Kylian Mbappe – Verdict: Cristiano RonaldoMbappe is the youngest player to feature on this list and it’s interesting to see why he notes Ronaldo as his ‘GOAT’. “From one year to the next, my choice changes between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, even if I have to admit to picking Ronaldo more often. I loved him when I was younger,” he revealed. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Verdict: Lionel MessiZlatan’s time at Barcelona was cut short due to Messi’s emergence but it’s safe to say it hasn’t swayed his opinion. Ronaldinho – Verdict: Lionel MessiRonaldinho played with a teenage Messi while he was breaking through at Barcelona and the Argentine forward inherited Ronaldinho’s number 10 shirt at the Nou Camp. “Messi. I would have loved to continue playing alongside him. I didn’t get enough time with him, he was very young. I’d love to take to the pitch with him one more time,” he revealed. “He’s the best in history, no doubt. Nobody has done what Messi’s done. The other one [Ronaldo] is complete, he has it all. So does Messi, but it’s a question of taste and I prefer Messi’s style.” Sir Alex Ferguson – Verdict: Cristiano RonaldoIt comes as no surprise that Sir Alex goes for former United winger Ronaldo who became one of the world’s best players plying his trade under the Scotsman. “Now don’t get me wrong, Messi is a fantastic player, it’s like he’s wearing slippers when he controls the ball,” Ferguson admitted. “But here, for me, is the difference. Messi is a Barcelona player. “But Ronaldo could play for Stockport County and score a hat-trick. He just wanted to be the best in the world.” Pele – Verdict: Cristiano RonaldoThe most recent example on this list, the World Cup winner explained he believes Ronaldo is the better player as he is ‘more consistent’. “Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo,” the 79-year-old told YouTube channel Pilhado.“I think he’s the best, because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.”Diego Maradona – Verdict: Lionel MessiMaradona gives his vote to fellow Argentine Messi, who he also managed at international level. “I can’t remember having seen Lionel Messi play badly,’ he explained. “I prefer Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo but I acknowledge that the latter is an animal. Football history will remember Messi. Football has given him a lot, as much as he has given the sport and to win a World Cup, in my opinion, wouldn’t bring himself anything else.” A list of players who have chosen between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has been revealed. The duo have been inseparable since rising to the top of football just over a decade ago and have won dozens of trophies between them. “I think Messi is one of a kind. What he’s doing, I don’t know if we will see another player do the things that he does,” he said. “It is different [with Ronaldo] because he is the result of hard training. It is not natural.” It’s a topic that everyone has an opinion on so we’ll quickly rattle through a few more names below. David Beckham – Verdict: Lionel Messi “He [Messi] is alone in his class as a player, it is impossible that there is another like him. He, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who is not at his level, are both above the rest.” Paul Scholes – Verdict: Lionel Messi “Ronaldo scores, he takes free-kicks. But as an all-round footballer, Messi – wow, his passing – he has absolutely everything.” Fabio Capello – Verdict: Lionel Messi “Ronaldo’s an extraordinary footballer, but Messi is a genius. “There are three geniuses in football: Pele, Maradona and Messi. Period. Ronaldo is very strong as he helps you win everything, but Messi is a genius and the better player.” Promoted ContentThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love WithYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindTop 9 Scariest Haunted Castles In EuropePlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parkscenter_img Zinedine Zidane – Verdict: Cristiano Ronaldo “Cristiano is the best.

He’s the greatest of all time.” But the question of who is the better of the two reared it’s head again last week when Pele admitted he prefers Juve forward Ronaldo to Barca star Messi.

Tim Sherwood: Under-fire Brendan Rodgers a victim of his own success

first_img Press Association Tim Sherwood insists Liverpool are lucky to have under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers – and he could have managed Real Madrid. The Aston Villa chief has defended Rodgers amid growing pressure on the Anfield boss following their poor start. Villa go to Merseyside on Saturday looking to pile the misery on Rodgers who has seen his side earn just eight points from six games to sit seven points off the top of the Barclays Premier League. center_img Rodgers took Liverpool to second in the league in 2014 and has vowed to fight for his Anfield future with the club denying Carlo Ancelotti had been approached about the possibility of taking over while Jurgen Klopp has been linked with the job. Sherwood, though, believes Rodgers remains a top manager. He said: “After that season they finished second, if they’d won the league could they have kept hold of Brendan Rodgers? “They would have tried everything – and they did, he signed a new contract after that. “All of a sudden he doesn’t turn into a bad manager, it’s fine margins. We might have seen him at Real Madrid. “Why wouldn’t we have seen him there? He’d have won the English Premier League with a team who hasn’t won it for God knows how many years. He would have been the hottest property in football. A week is a long time in this game, let alone a year. Because they got so close it intensifies the pressure. He’s paying the price for overachieving a couple of seasons ago. “It’s harder to be a manager now than 20 years ago with social media and faceless people have their opinions. There’s more pundits than players.” Christian Benteke has been denied a reunion with Villa for the first time since leaving in a £32.5million move in the summer with a hamstring injury and Sherwood, who has Idrissa Gueye (hamstring) available again, admitted Villa would not have let the Belgium striker go if he did not have a release clause. He added: “There wouldn’t have been a price the club would have taken if the clause wasn’t there. The clause was in there from previously and everyone looked at it and thought it was good money. I always knew that call was going to come.” last_img read more

A Facebook recruitment post by members of the Brevard FOP has been removed

first_imgA Brevard chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police deleted a controversial advertisement asking for officers involved in violent incidents in Buffalo, NY and Atlanta, GA, to join Florida police agencies.“Hey Buffalo 57… and Atlanta 6… we are hiring in Florida. Lower taxes, no spineless leadership, or dumb mayors rambling on at press conferences… Plus… we got your back! #lawandorderFlorida,” reads the June 6 post made at 1:21 a.m on the Brevard County F.O.P. Facebook page. The post, deleted sometime Monday morning garnered over 2,000 comments and 1,000 shares. The offensive invite posted on #Facebook by members of the #Brevard Fraternal Order of Police has been removed – here’s the story.— Christine Zambrano (@powersitesgroup) June 8, 2020 The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers in the country, representing some 300,000 members across some 2,000 local “lodges.” Critics say the non-profit organization is a major obstacle to policing reform through their advocacy and deep ties to police unions.The President of the Brevard County lodge acknowledged that the post was legitimate and defended its recruiting efforts as well as the actions of the Buffalo and Atlanta police officers involved in the widely condemned incidents. Some of those officers have been arrested and face criminal charges.But Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey distanced himself from the Brevard F.O.P. posts in a statement on Facebook, calling them “extremely distasteful and insensitive to current important and critical issues that are occurring across our country.”Ivey said comments by the organization or its members have no connection to his agency and “do not in any way represent the views of our agency.”The post was later removed.last_img read more
