Sherwood seeks clarity over future

first_img Former Tottenham and England boss Glenn Hoddle is second favourite among bookmakers for the post – behind Sherwood – and confirmed his interest in the job before the match, while Frank de Boer and Louis van Gaal continue to be mentioned as potential appointments. “Whoever takes this job is in a good position,” Sherwood said. “Andre has left the club in a good state, to be honest. There’s nothing wrong with the job he’s done. “If you look at the league table, we’re right up there. We’re also in the European competition next stage. “You can’t knock what he has done at the club, but it is just up to someone now to take it on and hopefully take it onto the next step.” If Sherwood ends up only being at the helm for a short period, whoever comes in will be thanking him for rejuvenating Adebayor. Having been cast aside by Villas-Boas, the Togo striker has scored three goals in two starts under the interim manager and was superb throughout at St Mary’s. “Listen, we all know Adebayor, we all know he’s a top player,” Sherwood said. “He doesn’t need any motivating to go and play now because he’s not played for a long time. He’s a top player and is certainly warranting his place in the team at the moment. “I’ve not said anything to him. Nothing. It’s down to him. “I’ve not had to gee him up. All I’ve said is: ‘There you go Ade, you are going to play and I want you to attack. I want the defenders to defend and the midfielders to play in midfield. Go out there, crack on and do what you do.’ It’s a simple game. “That’s how I’ve always viewed it; it’s about getting the ball to your top players in the right areas of the field. That’s what the players did with us.” The victory stops the rot at Spurs, but continues Southampton’s frustrating recent form. Saints, who took the lead through Adam Lallana and made it 2-2 through Rickie Lambert, have now gone six matches with a win – hardly the best preparation for trips to Cardiff and Everton. “It was very frustrating, we are very angry about the result,” said manager Mauricio Pochettino, who has been linked with the vacant Spurs post. “We actually dressed up as Santa Claus today and gifted them so many goals and so many chances. “We started off quite well in the first half, we got the 1-0 and we were very close to getting the 2-0 but then when we conceded the equaliser it was very hard to get back in the game, especially in the second half it was very tough.” The Portuguese was sacked less than 24 hours after last weekend’s 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool, with head of football development Sherwood handed temporary control. Sherwood’s first match at the helm resulted in a Capital One Cup exit to West Ham, but on Sunday he oversaw his first victory with an attack-minded display at Southampton. Tim Sherwood is hoping for talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Monday to find out whether he will stay on as Andre Villas-Boas’ successor. Emmanuel Adebayor netted either side of a Jos Hooiveld own goal as Spurs ran out 3-2 victors, resulting in bookmakers immediately shortening odds on the former midfielder being handed the reins on a permanent basis. The win will certainly not do those chances any harm and Sherwood hopes to take control of the Boxing Day clash with West Brom with a clearer idea on his future. Asked what happens next for him, Sherwood said: “Ideal for me is to have a chat with the chairman and see what’s best for the football club moving forward. “I need to know what they’re thinking moving forwards. I don’t want this job for five minutes. That’s no interest to me. “It is either are we going to move it forward or not? That’s where we are. “There are some great candidates out there for this job. It’s a massive club with history and tradition. “It is fantastic, a great honour to represent them, but it needs to be right for me and, first and foremost, right for the football club. “I need to talk to the chairman and see what he’s got planned. I’ll see him tomorrow because I’m in at the training ground. I’m sure it won’t be before that.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Alex Lamontagne scores twice as Syracuse takes 3-2 win over Drexel

first_img Published on September 17, 2015 at 10:42 pm Contact Michael: mdburk01@syr.edu After intercepting a pass from a Drexel defender intended for goalkeeper Eve Badana, Alex Lamontagne streaked toward the goal. Badana, the only one who stood between Lamontagne and the goal, creeped up toward Lamontagne. But Lamontagne slipped the ball around Badana and ran behind her.After tapping the ball into the empty net to give Syracuse a 1-0 lead, Lamontagne dropped to her knees and pumped both fists.“I knew (the defender) was going to pass back so I just tried to get my butt back and get there,” Lamontagne said.The goal gave Syracuse a 1-0 lead — its first goal in the first half of a game since it scored three times in the opening half against Massachusetts on Aug. 21 — and was Lamontagne’s second of the season. And after Drexel scored an equalizer early in the second half, Lamontagne quickly responded with another goal. It put Syracuse (4-4-1) up for good over the Dragons (6-3) in the Orange’s 3-2 win at SU Soccer Stadium on Thursday night, as Lamontagne’s quickness was on display throughout.Nearly eight full games separated Lamontagne’s first goal of 2015, which came in the second half against Massachusetts, and her second. But only 10 minutes of game time separated that goal and her third.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the score knotted at 1-1 in the 50th minute after Drexel’s Vanessa Kara scored in the 48th minute, Syracuse’s Jackie Firenze possessed the ball near midfield. She then lofted a pass high to Lamontagne. Again, only Badana separated Lamontagne and a go-ahead score. This time, Lamontagne simply tucked the ball past Badana and into the back of the net.Lamontagne immediately ran right of the goal, toward the flag stick, and screamed before being mauled by her teammates. On the bench, Eva Gourdeau pretended to bow down to Lamontagne. As Lamontagne ran toward the bench to accept high-fives, SU head coach Phil Wheddon set down his clipboard and congratulated her.“To get a second (goal), right now, for her is a huge confidence boost,” Wheddon said.On both goals, it was Lamontagne’s speed that allowed her to get behind Drexel’s back line and score, forward Alexis Koval said. And it was that speed that allowed Lamontagne to create a number of other scoring opportunities, even when she didn’t capitalize.With just over 23 minutes left in the first half, Lamontagne sped into the penalty box unaccounted for as Eva Gordon crossed a pass toward her, forcing Badana to dive to the ground to grab the ball. With about 36 minutes left, Lamontagne had no trouble getting around Drexel’s right back and into the box, where Lamontagne got off a shot that was blocked.“She’s got dynamic movement,” Wheddon said. “The other teams have to respect her. They have to track her. And when she pulls two defenders out … that allows other players to be open. For us, Alex is maturing as a player.”With just over a minute to play, Firenze sent a pass from Syracuse’s side of the field toward Lamontagne, who was near the goal after again getting behind the Drexel defender that was supposed to be guarding her.This time, Badana got to the ball first and grabbed it before Lamontagne could get a shot on goal. But in terms of deciding the game’s outcome, it didn’t matter. With two of SU’s three goals, Lamontagne had done her part.Said Lamontagne: “I think I just tried to stay more composed… Just trying to get open and get through those seams.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Ekiti State FA Crisis Deepens Over Alleged Corruption

first_imgThe crisis rocking the Ekiti State Football Association (FA) has taken a new dimension after the association boss was accused of misappropriating funds in addition to him awarding contracts to his own personal company Topworld Limited.According to some Ekiti State board members, Ayo Alabi is guilty of blackmail and intimidation, misappropriation and application of funds as well as flagrant abuse of office.In his reaction to Saharareporters Sports on the above allegations, the Ekiti State FA boss denied any crisis talks. In his words, he said: “I am not aware of any crisis in Ekiti FA. It is normal for members to have complaints. And it is also normal for it to be resolved. Therefore, I am not aware of any crisis, except you are telling me there is one now.”On the crisis, former Ekiti FA chairmen Ayodele Isaac and Taiwo Odebunmi had different opinions. Isaac said: ” I am not aware of any crisis presently. However, I won’t say, there has not been crisis. I believe it has been resolved. Yes, several FA chairmen intervened and I think we have been able to nip it in the bud. Mind you, it is normal to have crisis and I think I had my fair share of it. As well as Odebunmi and other past chairmen .”On the other hand, Odebunmi revealed that there is a crisis brewing in the association. He said:“The crisis in Ekiti FA came up because other board members felt neglected and unhappy that the chairman was not carrying them along in decision making.”“They also accused him of not holding meetings, don’t forget that Ekiti State is dry in terms of football activities. I remember that at the height of this crisis, several stakeholders in Ekiti football including ex-chairmen and some influential football people from other states were invited to wade into the crisis. And a prominent son of the state, Oba Ajakaye, the Oluyin of Iyin, Ekiti, was asked to mediate and bring peace. Therefore, we pray for a lasting peace in Ekiti football.” he added.
