Ex-Spurs boss Sherwood makes ill-timed joke about Lloris horror arm injury

first_imgTIM SHERWOOD wasted little time turning the knife on Hugo Lloris by making a joke about his horror arm injury while he was being treated in hospital.Lloris suffered a dislocated elbow after falling heavily on his left arm just 129 seconds into Tottenham’s game against Brighton.4 Hugo Lloris was left screaming in agony after suffering a horrific dislocated elbow in the defeat at BrightonCredit: ReutersThe 32-year-old was left screaming in agony and needed morphine to help cope with the pain following the shocking incident early in the 3-0 defeat at the Amex Stadium.The harrowing scenes led to fears over the long-term health of the World Cup winner, with Manchester United keeper David De Gea quick to send his best wishes minutes after it happened.But former Spurs boss Sherwood, who managed Lloris during his time in charge of the North London club, was less sympathetic.The 50-year-old was working as a pundit at the game for the Premier League channel alongside Michael Owen – and minutes after full-time he was making a joke of the incident.The pair were analysing the mistake from Lloris in the seconds leading up to the freak accident, which had gifted Brighton an early lead.Sherwood said: “Listen, Hugo would hold his arms up if he could hold both up and say that, ‘that’s a mistake’.”The attempted pun was met with a blank response by fellow pundit Owen and experienced presenter Manish Bhasin in the studio.4 Tim Sherwood joked about Lloris not being able to hold both his hands up to a mistakeCredit: Twitter-EssayjamesAdvanced levels of shithousery from Tim Sherwood.

Bayern head to AEK buoyed by ‘liberating’ victory

first_img0Shares0000Lewandowski netted twice at the weekend to end a five-game winless streak © AFP/File / John MACDOUGALLBERLIN, Germany, Oct 22 – Bayern Munich travel to Greece to face AEK Athens in the Champions League on Tuesday boosted by a Bundesliga win that “felt like a liberation” after their miserable run of form and a stormy week behind the scenes.The pressure was mounting on the German champions and new coach Niko Kovac during a four-match winless run to the extent that senior club figures including Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness launched a stunning attack on the media. But Saturday’s 3-1 win over Wolfsburg, in which Robert Lewandowski scored twice to end a five-game goal drought, is being hailed as a potential turning point for Bayern’s season.“That felt like a liberation,” said centre-back Mats Hummels, while sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was equally relieved, saying: “We have shown character in a difficult phase.”The tension had been ratcheted up on Friday when Rummenigge, Hoeness and Salihamidzic slammed the press for “disgusting and respectless” reporting of Bayern’s poor performances in recent weeks, singling out German journalists to scold.Saturday’s three points provided some calm at the Allianz Arena, but the pressure is still on Kovac heading to Athens, after a 1-1 home draw with Ajax last time out in Europe left Bayern’s Group E hopes in the balance.Kovac was cautious about thoughts that Bayern will now rediscover the form which saw them romp to six straight German titles, describing the win at Wolfsburg as “just a small and first step in the right direction”.But James Rodriguez, who scored a fantastic goal at the weekend, was more bullish, saying that Bayern are back in business.“In a long season, these things always happen,” said James, referring to the recent shock defeats by Hertha Berlin and Borussia Moenchengladbach that has left them fourth in the Bundesliga table.“There are bad games, there are good games. This bad phase has already gone. Now comes something good.”Left-back David Alaba was Bayern’s only injury concern from Wolfsburg after the Austrian was taken off at half-time as a precautionary measure with a thigh strain.Feel-good factor: Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez, Mats Hummels and Niklas Suele celebrate after Saturday’s win at Wolfsburg © AFP/File / John MACDOUGALLThe AEK match marks the start of a busy few weeks for Bayern who face midweek games from now up until the November international break — culminating with a crunch clash at Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund on November 10.“We will be playing every three days, but the rhythm is good and I hope we’ll go from win to win,” said Lewandowski.After crashing to a 3-0 defeat at Ajax, then losing 3-2 at home to Benfica, AEK are chasing their first points in the group against Bayern, who have never lost a Champions League game in Greece with three wins and a draw.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Late Ambrose Kirya penalty hands SC Villa unlikely point off URA FC

first_imgAction between URA FC and SC Villa on Friday. (PHOTO/URA FC)Uganda Premier League SC Villa 1-1 URA FCLuzira Prisons Stadium, LuziraFriday, 01-11-2019LUZIRA – SC Villa vice captain Ambrose Kirya scored a 92nd minute penalty to ensure the Jogoos draw 1-1 with URA FC on Friday.Kirya who had played a missing in action role all day, sent Alionzi Nafian the wrong way after the custodian brought down Faizo Muwawu in the area.Earlier, Brian Majwega had converted from the spot to hand URA FC a deserved lead.URA started the game strongly and Saidi Kyeyune pulled an effort wide.Moments later, Kyeyune sent Joachim Ojera on his way but the winger went down in the area under the challenge of Saidi Keni. However, referee William Oloya waved play on and signaled for a goal kick after the ball went out.Ojera who was a problem for Villa all afternoon would not be denied twice as he fell over from a Yayo Lutimba shove prompting Oloya to award a penalty.Brian Majwega stepped up and sent Keni the wrong way to put the Tax Collectors 1-0 up inside the first 10 minutes.URA FC were in close control of proceedings and could have increased their tally only yo be let down by poor finishing.Kagimu shot straight at Keni after good work down the right by Ojera.The skippers then miscued a Cromwell Rwothomio low cross while inside the Villa area.He was then sent through on goal by Kyeyune’s clever free kick but pulled his effort over the bar.Mikadad Ssenyongo then rattled the post as he pounced onto a Rwothomio poor header.Rwothomio got a glorious chance to seal the points but after nut-mugging Alishe, his goal bound effort was pushed out for a fruitless corner by Keni.Villa struggled to create chances throughout the game.Their first realistic opportunity came 25 minutes from time with Muwawu forcing Nafian into a finger-tip save.From the resultant corner, the hosts could not force the ball over with Alishe and Kirya all failing to sort their feet in a goal-mouth scramble.Muwawu then pulled a shot wide after he was played in by Kibumba’s low cross.With time running out, Villa would steal a point from almost nothing.Emmanuel Kalyowa played a ball over the top and Muwawu pounced but before attempting a shot, he was brought down by Nafian inside the area. Kirya took responsibility and scored in what proved to be thw last piece of action.The result means the Villa have now gone 9 games without defeat since losing their opening game away to Kyetume FC.The win sees SC Villa move onto 17 points for the season but remain 4th on the log.For URA FC, they remain 10th with 11 points.Comments Tags: Ambrose KiryaBrian MajwegaJoachim OjeraSaidi Kenisaidi kyeyuneSC VillaUganda Premier LeagueURA FClast_img read more
