Departing Meyer makes 'bullying' claim against Schalke

Departing Meyer makes 'bullying' claim against Schalke
Max Meyer's time at Schalke is coming to an ugly end after the young midfielder accused people of "bullying" him and revealed sporting director mak is the reason he is leaving. Meyer had long been linked with a move away from Schalke after he entered the final year of his contract, which he will not be extending. Heidel confirmed on Thursday that Meyer was "definitely" on his way out, insisting it was an "amicable" agreement. But club president Clemens Tonnies said two days that later both Meyer and Leon Goretzka – who is leaving for Bayern Munich at the end of the season – are on "the money train". Meyer says money has nothing to do with his exit, instead pointing the finger at Heidel. "I was never concerned about the money, otherwise I would have accepted the second improved offer," Meyer told Bild. "That's why I find it a mess for Clemens Tonnies to say it on TV as if it were all about money. I simply did not want to stay with Schalke and work under Heidel. It's all about this. Lately, it just feels like bullying to me. "I did not want to come out and talk. I've just had enough of always reading something about myself, but neither Heidel nor Tonnies talked to me. "Now they can read how the last two years have been for me at Schalke." The 22-year-old missed Saturday's 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach due to a foot injury, but he insists he was fit to play. "I had a knock on Wednesday, but told the doctor that evening that I could work out," he said. "I was not hurt. That's what I said to the coach on Thursday. "He said before training I should stay and wait until Monday with the training. I have been available since Thursday."

Khan won't relocate England national teams if Wembley bid is accepted

Khan won't relocate England national teams if Wembley bid is accepted
Billionaire Shahid Khan has promised that Wembley will continue to be the home of England's national football teams if his offer to buy the stadium is accepted. It was announced on Thursday that Khan has officially tabled a bid for the venue, which could be worth as much as £800million, according to reports. The American, who owns Fulham and the Jacksonville Jaguars, is keen to tap into the growing interest in the NFL in the UK and boost revenues for his Florida franchise. However, he insists he will not relocate England's home matches and is confident the deal would also allow the FA to concentrate on its promise to strengthen football at grassroots level. "I am very pleased to learn today that The Football Association board of directors received our offer to purchase Wembley Stadium, our home away from home in London, from the FA," Khan said in a statement posted by the Jaguars on Thursday. "One of the many benefits of the Jaguars' commitment to London has been our partnership with the FA and Wembley Stadium.  Over the past several years, it became clearer to us and the FA that the idea of our purchase of Wembley Stadium made a lot of sense for all of us. "For the FA, it would mean Wembley Stadium returning to private ownership, permitting the FA to direct its full attention to its mandate to develop talent and serve the game with the vast resources it would realize from the sale. For the Jaguars, it would deliver another – and very significant – asset and local revenue source that would further strengthen our investment in London, which as everyone knows is crucial to the Jaguars' continued sustainability in Jacksonville. "In every respect, the Jaguars' standing in London would be improved and dramatically enhanced if we are fortunate to be approved as the new owner and steward of Wembley Stadium, and that's good news for the Jaguars and all of Jacksonville. "If you've had the occasion to join us for one of our Jaguars home games in London, you know that Wembley Stadium is a very special place. Our commitment to the FA is we will own and operate Wembley with the care and respect it deserves, always being mindful that it is – and will continue to be – the home of England's national teams as well as the ultimate destination for the world's top entertainment and sports event, including Jaguars and NFL games. "And today's announcement is additional evidence that we are committed to create and enhance new revenue streams to boost the Jaguars, such as the incredibly successful Daily's Place and the project we revealed last week with The Cordish Companies on the proposed development around EverBank Field. "Today's news changes none of what we envision for the long-term promise for the Jaguars here in Jax, and it changes nothing as to the goals we have for your downtown. If anything, today's news is the embodiment of the ethos we adopted several years ago of being proud, bold and committed."

Bayern Munich 1 Real Madrid 2: Asensio seals smash-and-grab win for Zidane's men

Latest News RSS feed
Bayern Munich 1 Real Madrid 2: Asensio seals smash-and-grab win for Zidane's men
Bayern Munich 1 Real Madrid 2: Asensio seals smash-and-grab win for Zidane's men
Marco Asensio's half-time introduction proved decisive as Real Madrid pickpocketed a 2-1 win at Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final. Bayern overcame the early loss of Arjen Robben through injury to lead when Joshua Kimmich caught out Kaylor Navas with a rasping finish before the half-hour mark. Zinedine Zidane's European champions never truly recovered their defensive poise from that point, even after Marcelo clattered home a 44th-minute equaliser. Full-backs were the heroes in both first-half goals, but an awful error by Bayern left-back Rafinha allowed Asensio, on for the struggling Isco, to hand Madrid a significant second away goal.  Cristiano Ronaldo, who had scored in every match in this season's competition, had a strike ruled out for handball – an advantage that would have further flattered Zidane's men after a strangely error-strewn encounter at the Allianz Arena, where Robert Lewandowski's pursuit of a 40th goal this season went awry in untimely fashion.  Photo finish....  @marcoasensio10 pic.twitter.com/lKUwKg3bJU — Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadriden) April 25, 2018 Thomas Muller was unable to contort himself to convert Lewandowski's hooked cross during the opening minute, setting the tone for a frantic start that continued until Robben pulled up. The Bayern winger made way due to a problem with his right leg and the pace of the game settled following Thiago Alcantara's introduction. The first clear chance fell Madrid's way when Dani Carvajal darted in behind James Rodriguez – playing against his parent club – for Lucas Vazquez's return flick and shot too close to Sven Ulreich. There were questions over Ulreich's opposite number Navas in the 28th minute when Kimmich latched on to James' incisive pass and clattered past the Madrid goalkeeper at his near post. Bayern then lost centre-back Jerome Boateng to a hamstring injury, but it was Madrid ailing in defence – Navas rushing out to deny Franck Ribery one-on-one as a heavy touch undermined the veteran Frenchman. Muller had a shot deflected behind at close quarters by Sergio Ramos and Marcelo's drive into the bottom-right corner after he seized upon the loose ball from Carvajal's header certainly came against the run of play. Lewandowski and Muller had further chances as Madrid floundered under set-pieces in first-half stoppage time and the latter was heroically denied in the goalmouth by a combination of Raphael Varane and Ramos in the 51st minute after Ribery twisted past Casemiro. Zidane introducing Asensio in place of Isco put Madrid on a clear path of trying to exploit the counter-attack, but that tactic seemed questionable as Muller streamed into space behind Marcelo to cross and his defensive colleagues muddled clear from Lewandowski's header. However, the Madrid coach's call soon looked inspired. A trio of Madrid defenders put pay to @esmuellert_'s chances of scoring from close range. Keep pushing forward, boys! (55') #FCBRMA 1-1 pic.twitter.com/vq9NATKzsh — FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) April 25, 2018 Rafinha's dreadful pass across midfield set Asensio scampering into the Bayern half. Lucas' return pass left him with work to do, but the 22-year-old clipped an assured finish beyond the advancing Ulreich. Navas had responded well to his earlier setback and stood firm to deny Ribery in the 63rd minute. Muller was unable to scramble home when Javi Martinez rose at the back post as another cross caused havoc in the Madrid box before the tireless Ribery had a drive deflected wide in the 70th minute. Ronaldo then furiously patted his shoulder to protest after the officials spotted he used his arm to control a lofted pass before steering an effort past Ulreich, who denied substitute Karim Benzema with his boot inside the final 15 minutes. Lewandowski clipped wide from 10 yards in the 88th minute, concluding an uncharacteristically wasteful outing that leaves Bayern facing elimination by Madrid for the third time in five seasons.   Key Opta facts: - Real Madrid have now won six consecutive Champions League matches against Bayern Munich, their joint-longest run against an opponent in the competition's history, also winning six in a row against Ajax between 2010 and 2012. - The last three occasions Bayern have scored first in a Champions League match and lost have all been against Real Madrid (also both quarter-final legs last season). - This was Real Madrid's 150th Champions League win, making them the first team to reach this milestone. - Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score in a Champions League match for the first time since May 2017, ending a run of 11 consecutive scoring matches in the competition. - Marco Asensio's last three Champions League goals have been as a substitute, with all of them coming in knockout matches – two against Bayern (last season's quarter-final and this game) and one against Juventus in last season's final. - No player has been involved in more goals for Bayern in the Champions League this season than Joshua Kimmich (6 – three goals and three assists).

MLS Review: Ibrahimovic extinguishes Schweinsteiger's Fire

MLS Review: Ibrahimovic extinguishes Schweinsteiger's Fire
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his third MLS goal as the former Manchester United striker led LA Galaxy to a 1-0 win over Bastian Schweinsteiger's Chicago Fire. Ibrahimovic has made an immediate impact in California following his arrival from Premier League giants United, scoring twice in his match-winning debut against neighbours Los Angeles FC March 31. And the 36-year-old Swede continued his inspired form for the Galaxy Saturday, scoring the winner in the first half at a sold-out Toyota Park in Chicago. After Ola Kamara had two goals ruled out for offside in the opening stages of the match, Ibrahimovic broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time when he headed Ashley Cole's cross past Fire goalkeeper Richard Sanchez. Cole  Zlatan  #CHIvLA https://t.co/axleJ7tBJ6 — Major League Soccer (@MLS) April 14, 2018 "I think the game was difficult, it was not an easy game especially with the weather." Ibrahimovic said. "I mean, we come with the sun, they come with the wind, but the sun was the stronger today, so we’re happy." It moved the Galaxy up to second in the Western Conference, while Schweinsteiger – another former United player – and his Fire have only won one of their opening five games to languish second from bottom in the Eastern Conference. Was good to see you my friend @Ibra_official. All the best this season. pic.twitter.com/rhbevySnDR — Basti Schweinsteiger (@BSchweinsteiger) April 15, 2018 The Fire are only a point better off than reigning MLS champions Toronto, who suffered a 2-0 defeat against Colorado Rapids. Toronto reached the CONCACAF Champions League final during the week after upstaging seven-time winners America. And head coach Greg Vanney prioritised Tuesday's first leg against Guadalajara by resting the likes of stars Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore against the Rapids, who took full advantage thanks to goals from Jack Prince and Shkelzen Gashi. FC Dallas remain undefeated in the league following their 1-0 win over New England Revolution, Portland Timbers claimed a wild 3-2 victory against Minnesota United, New York Red Bulls accounted for Montreal Impact 3-1, 10-man DC United trumped Columbus Crew 1-0, while San Jose Earthquakes and Houston Dynamo played out a 2-2 draw.

AFC Champions League Review: Al Jazira leave it late to secure qualification
Ali Mabkhout struck deep into stoppage time as Al Jazira secured a place in the last 16 of the AFC Champions League with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Al Gharafa. Midfielder Assim Madibo was sent off for the hosts just before Al Jazira claimed all three points in the fourth added minute, Mabkhout rounding the goalkeeper to slot in the decisive fifth goal of a see-saw contest. Al Gharafa now sit three points behind their opponents in Group A but cannot qualify due to the head-to-head record between the teams. Saudi Arabia's Al Ahli sit top of the table, however, with a routine 2-0 result at home to Tractorsazi Tabriz sending them through to the knockout stages for a second successive season. #ACL2018 Group A standings after 5 games played! @ALAHLI_FC and @AlJazira_uae qualify for the Round of 16! pic.twitter.com/7XX8HG5q3u — AFC Champions League (@TheAFCCL) April 3, 2018 Al Duhail maintained their 100 per cent record in Group B, Ismail Mohammad scoring with six minutes remaining to clinch a 1-0 win away at Zob Ahan. The defeat was a blow to the hosts, who now face a winner-takes-all showdown against PFC Lokomotiv - who thrashed Al Wahda 4-1 in Abu Dhabi - to decide who will finish second behind the runaway winners. In Group G, Guangzhou Evergrande remain top of the table despite conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 with Buriram United. Fabio Cannavaro's side dominated throughout but failed to build on Zheng Long's 20th-minute strike, allowing the hosts to grab an unlikely point when Yoo Jun-su fired home in the second minute of additional time. Still, the two-time champions hold a one-point lead over Cerezo Osaka, who defeated Jeju United 2-1 thanks to goals from Eiichi Katayama and Yoichiro Kakitani.
