Neymar set to return for Brazil v Colombia – Tite

first_img0Shares0000Brazil coach Tite says he expects Neymar to make his return from injury in Friday’s friendly against Colombia in Miami © AFP / Martin BUREAUMIAMI, United States, Sep 5 – Brazil coach Tite said Neymar will make a long-awaited return from injury when the South American champions take on Colombia in a friendly in Miami on Friday.Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has not played since suffering an ankle injury in a friendly against Qatar in June which ruled him out of the Copa America. However Tite Thursday said the striker had been declared fit and ready to return against the Colombians in Friday’s game at the Hard Rock Stadium.“Clinically he has recovered from the injury that as everyone remembers removed him from the Copa America,” Tite said.“If he wasn’t fit, he wouldn’t be with the national team. We are not irresponsible to force a situation when it concerns the athlete’s health,” Tite added.“Me and the coaching staff will be very attentive to his development. He is ready, he is capable of doing what the team needs,” he added.Brazil went on to win the Copa America crown without Neymar in July, their first victory in the tournament since 2007.Since then Neymar has been embroiled in a protracted saga, which saw him fail in his attempts to engineer a move back to Barcelona from PSG.Tite meanwhile said he expects a demanding test of his team against Colombia, who were eliminated in the quarter-finals of this year’s Copa America.“It will be a strong confrontation. We all know the quality of the Colombian national team,” Tite said.While the game will mark the return of Neymar, Tite also plans to hand a debut to Real Madrid’s 19-year-old Vinicius Jr.“I’m happy to be here realising my dream,” Vinicius said. “It’s hard to believe that at 19 I’m here next to the best players, next to my idol (Neymar) and the players I’d always supported,” he told a press conference.Colombia meanwhile will be without star attackers Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez.0Shares0000(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ex-Atletico Madrid and current Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores excited for reunion with Manchester United’s David De Gea

first_img Ex-Atletico Madrid and current Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores excited for David De Gea reunion 1 Quique Sanchez Flores has revealed that he is looking forward to a reunion with Manchester United’s David De Gea, having given the goalkeeper his break.Watford host United in the Premier League on Saturday, seven seasons after Sanchez Flores promoted De Gea into Atletico Madrid’s first team, and his former manager, now in charge at Watford, believes he has matured into the world’s best.De Gea was Atletico’s third choice when Sanchez Flores was appointed manager in October 2009 but he ended the season in the first team and close to making Spain’s victorious squad for the 2010 World Cup.Since then he has proved himself a suitable successor to Edwin van der Sar at United and been the subject of intense interest from Real Madrid, but Sanchez Flores – who the goalkeeper grew so close to he bought him a pocket watch as a present – believes he should remain in the Premier League, and is convinced that his experience in England has been vital to his development.“I gave David his debut. He was the third-choice ‘keeper and after one month he was first choice,” Sanchez Flores said.“He was amazing. You just need to focus on the training and watch how he is taking the ball and handling it.“For me he is probably the best goalkeeper in the world. I got a present after two years when we separated, it was a clock.“The watch is an antique, golden on a chain. You wear it in your pocket. It is very English. I don’t remember but I think there was an inscription. I still have it. I won’t wear it, that’s too much.“(But) he has everything, he is more than a goalkeeper. He can control everything, the ball in the air. He is good in the goal and out of the goal. For me he is the top three best goalkeepers in the world.“It would be perfect for the Premier League for him to stay and perfect for him. He needed to come here to learn.“I’ve talked a lot about De Gea but with his confidence it will be very difficult to score past him.“I have (a special relationship with De Gea). (And) with (David) Silva and (Sergio) Aguero, I wanted to wait until after the game because I don’t like to speak to opponents before the game. I try to respect.“I don’t like my players to see me having a relationship with other players, hugging them. I will wait in my dressing room, for sure. After the game, of course, I will spend time with him.”United visit Watford after a period in which they have been labelled boring by their own fans, owing to their predictability and lack of goals.Flores, however, does not agree with that verdict, and believes that not only is their ball retention “amazing” but that United will improve further.“It is amazing ball possession,” he said. “This is a process. (Their manager Louis) Van Gaal is doing a bit to respect the style of play, to keep the ball and after with the idea to (score). It is not boring. At the moment they are doing their first objective – to keep the ball.“The other part of the process is to be offensive, aggressive in the last third. Maybe at the moment they are not so aggressive in the last third but they are efficient, because they are shooting three and put three in the goal. So it is a process.”last_img read more

Jonas Gutierrez wins disability discrimination case against Newcastle

first_img1 Former Newcastle star Jonas Gutierrez has won his disability discrimination claim against his old club.Gutierrez alleged he was frozen out of the first team because of his diagnosis with testicular cancer in 2013.Newcastle rejected the claim, saying the midfielder simply did not feature in successive managers’ plans for the squad.The 32-year-old brought employment tribunal claim against his former club for disability discrimination after accusing management of ensuring he failed to make enough appearances on the pitch to trigger a lucrative one-year contract extension worth up to £2million.On Thursday the tribunal panel, delivering its findings in a 64-page document, said: “We concluded that the reason why the respondent managed the claimant’s selection was because they no longer wanted him at the club because of his cancer.”They added that the club “made a very rapid decision” after Gutierrez’s return following treatment at the end of 2013, “that they no longer wanted him, because of his cancer”.The panel also found there was then “a continuing course of conduct” by Newcastle to “remove” the midfielder from the club.Gutierrez, currently playing for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna, spent seven seasons with Newcastle after joining the club in 2008, and underwent an operation to remove a tumour in his left testicle in October 2013.In his statement to the tribunal hearing last month in Birmingham, the midfielder said he was called into then manager Alan Pardew’s office in early December 2013 – when he felt he was returning to full fitness – to be told that he did not feature in Newcastle’s future plans and was free to agree terms with another club.A further claim that the club failed to make reasonable adjustments for Gutierrez succeeded.Two other claims of unfavourable treatment and harassment brought by the player failed.A remedy hearing is now due to be scheduled to determine Gutierrez’s compensation.
