Speaking of the 31-year-old, Robinson told Football Insider: “I wouldn’t care about what he has said about Spurs in the past, look at what Mourinho has said about Spurs in the past. “If Willian became available, he is a top-quality player and if there is anyway Mourinho could convince him to come to Spurs, he’d be a brilliant addition.Advertisement “I think he’d fit into the squad perfectly as he’s a top-class player and you know what’s gone on in the past is irrelevant. “If he performs in a Tottenham shirt, there won’t be a problem.

At least, that’s what the newspaper ‘Sport’ suggests. The Frenchman hasn’t had a good season at Barcelona, he has struggled to adapt, and he hasn’t been capable of making Barca forget about Neymar either, their greatest desire.Since the Brazilian left for PSG in the summer of 2017, Barcelona have tried actively and passively to make up for his absence, without success. Not even the breakthrough of Dembélé, nor Coutinho’s class, nor Griezmann’s good work have served for Neymar to be forgotten about.And now, like every summer, the return of the prodigal son is again being rumoured about. The difference is that now Barcelona have a player that PSG would be willing to accept as a bargaining chip: Griezmann.Read Also: Barcelona coach warned by UEFAThe inclusion of the Frenchman would undoubtedly cheapen the deal (it’s an illusion to think it’ll be man for man) and would leave Barcelona with enough money to undertake their other big summer signing: Lautaro Martínez.However, according to the aforementioned source, Griezmann has his days numbered. If PSG don’t want to do a deal with Barca, the Frenchman will still be cashed in on. They hope to get 100 million for him.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Barcelona are so eager to get Neymar back that they seem willing to sacrifice Griezmann, their most disputed signing in recent times, to achieve it.

Dani Osvaldo’s ill-fated five-month stay at Southampton is over, with the club-record signing joining Juventus on loan with a view to a permanent move. “Juventus Football Club can today confirm that terms have been agreed with Southampton Football Club on a free loan deal for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo,” the club said on their official website, www.juventus.com. “The agreement also includes the option, to be exercised before May 13 2014, for the purchase of the player’s full registration rights at a price of 19 million euros, to be paid over the course of three years.” That deal would be worth £15.6million to Southampton and Press Association Sport understands the reigning Serie A champions will pay his wages in full during the loan. Osvaldo’s departure will be a relief to Southampton, with manager Mauricio Pochettino admitting on Thursday that it would be hard for him to play for the club again. The Saints boss worked with the Argentina-born striker for just over a season at Espanyol and, when he signed, was quick to reassure fans that the controversies that had dogged his career were over. However, Osvaldo attacked popular defender Fonte during a session at the club’s Staplewood training ground and was handed a two-week suspension by the club. The incident saw his relationship with many in the dressing room become irreparable and made a January exit inevitable. Juventus were the favourites for his signature from the outset and, having completed the move, Osvaldo wants to stay at in Turin for many years. Much had been expected of the 28-year-old after he swapped Roma for the south coast in August in a deal worth up to £14.6million. The Italy international penned a four-year deal but has managed just 166 days at St Mary’s, with Saints cutting their losses after an altercation with team-mate Jose Fonte last week. “I’m very happy,” Osvaldo told the club’s official website. “It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind and I still can’t quite believe it but I’m happy. “It was pleasing when I first heard of Juventus’ interest in me. “When everything was completed last night I sat down and I couldn’t believe it. “As I said before, it’s been a pretty hectic three or four days but I’m happy.” Osvaldo’s departure is the last bit of transfer activity expected at St Mary’s before the deadline, with Jason Puncheon’s loan move to Crystal Palace made permanent earlier. Pochettino had spoken about bringing a new face in earlier in the week, only for teenager Sam Gallagher’s impressive senior debut in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal to change his mind. Despite failing to score, the 18-year-old led the line with aplomb against Arsenal and will be vying with the returning Rickie Lambert for a place in the side at Fulham on Saturday. Press Association
Tags: boys lacrosseC-NS Youthful energy and a winning heritage forged at the junior college and major college level are traits that Cicero-North Syracuse’s new boys lacrosse varsity head coach, Nick Gatto, brings to the Northstars.It was announced Thursday that the 33-year-old Gatto will take over at C-NS after Jack McAndrew’s lone season at the helm, when the Northstars had a 7-9 record. C-NS is still in search of its first-ever Section III boys lacrosse title.Gatto, the assistant athletic director at OCC, is not the only new face on the C-NS staff. Two coaches who worked with Gatto at OCC, Mike Villano and Chris Brim, are also joining the Northstars, with Villano taking over as defensive coordinator.Having grown up in Eastwood, Gatto attended Henninger High School and went from there to OCC, where in 2006 he scored 40 goals and 95 assists, leading the Lazers to the first of their long string of NJCAA national championships. He was also named the junior college Offensive Player of the Year.Then Gatto went to Le Moyne College and the winning continued as he led the Dolphins to the 2007 NCAA Division II championship and a second-place in 2008, his senior year, when Gatto was an All-American selection.Chuck Wilbur, OCC’s long-time head coach, hired Gatto as an assistant coach right after his graduation from Le Moyne. As the Lazers continued to amass national titles, Gatto learned plenty from Wilbur in his decade on the sidelines.And now Gatto is at C-NS, where both varsity lacrosse teams will have new head coaches in 2020. Lloyd Hamilton stepped down as the girls lacrosse head coach earlier this summer.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story
Alec Faulkner | Daily TrojanThe Rev. Cecil L. Murray, the John R. Tansey chair of Christian ethics in the School of Religion, discusses his experiences as pastor of an 18,000-person church in Doheny Library on Tuesday. Murray, who played a key role during the Los Angeles riots, signed his book Twice Tested By Fire: A Memoir of Faith and Service after the event.
Throughout his youth, Omar Siddiqui aspired to become a Renaissance man. Inspired by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Benjamin Franklin, Siddiqui, an alumnus of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, now hopes to expand his career politically in a run for the U.S. House of Representatives to represent California’s 48th District in this year’s midterm elections. Photo courtesy of Omar Siddiqui“After Benjamin Franklin debated with his fellow congressmen about the Declaration of Independence, he’s [still] out there doing science experiments,” he said. “[These men] merged science, technology, engineering and math with the humanities, arts and law.”Siddiqui wants to bring the diversity of his experiences, specifically his knowledge of national security and emphasis on human rights, to Congress. After Siddiqui completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil and environmental engineering at USC, he enrolled in law school at Loyola Marymount University to fulfill his career goal as a trial lawyer and litigator. During his legal career, Siddiqui was recruited to work on national security matters with the Federal Bureau of Investigation under former President Barack Obama’s administration and served as an adviser to the Central Intelligence Agency. Siddiqui attributed his entrance into the political arena to Obama and former FBI Director James Comey: two men whose words stuck with him as he started his campaign for Congress.“It was October [or] November of 2016, and I was venting to President Obama about the state of our nation and the direction it was headed in,” Siddiqui said. “He was telling me, like his famous quote, ‘Be the change you want to be. Be that change. What are you waiting for?’ I was reflecting on that, on that move to go from attorney to a [politician].”Likewise, Comey echoed similar sentiments to Siddiqui: There was no time to sit around. Comey’s dismissal from the FBI by President Donald Trump in April 2017 unsettled Siddiqui and inspired him to announce his campaign in July.“That was a defining moment for me because I realized there was no time to stand around,” he said. “I can no longer sit on the sidelines. I have to be that change.” The 48th district comprises several Orange County cities, like Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Westminster and Santa Ana, whose populations are majority white, although there exist thriving Asian and Hispanic communities.Despite the district’s historically Republican voting patterns, Siddiqui aims to focus on issues voters across the political spectrum believe are important, such as national security, healthcare and environmental policy. “Now, our country is really divided on political party [lines],” Siddiqui said. “One thing we need to be united on is our national security. It’s not a partisan issue if you have a foreign nation like Russia interfering with our elections and our democracy.”He says his inclusive messaging is also represented in his platform, which outlines Siddiqui’s support for marginalized groups and their rights in the U.S. “I’m for a clean [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] bill and taking it one step further to give them an opportunity to have a pathway to citizenship,” he said, commenting on Congress’ current struggle with immigration reform. “But, we can’t just think of the Dreamers alone. We also have to think of other 11 million undocumented immigrants who are in our country. We need to make sure we have immigration reform that affects everybody.”Siddiqui’s campaign slogan, “United We Rise,” embodies his goal to connect with voters regardless of political party. “We are moving and getting a lot of Republicans and Democrats and no-party preference voters to come out to the polls and be that change,” he said. “I think a lot of people feel that their vote doesn’t count but we’re spreading the message that every vote counts, and everyone counts.”
