Steven Gerrard urges Rangers fans not to ‘get carried away’ with Ianis Hagi


& # 39; I'm sure people get carried away for scoring the winner & # 39 ;: Steven Gerrard urges Rangers fans to be patient with signing the deadline day Ianis Hagi, son of the Gheorghe legend of Romania, despite the debut goal

  • Ianis Hagi impressed his Rangers debut at Ibrox after his deadline-day move
  • ] But boss Steven Gerrard has insisted not to take & # 39; away & # 39; with Hagi
  • The newly acquired Rangers midfielder is the son of Romanian legend Gheorghe
  • Steven Gerrard admits he has the hype about Ianis Hagi will contain a struggle after seeing the new Rangers midfielder opens his Ibrox account.

    The Rangers boss pleaded with supporters to show Hagi – son of Romania, great Gheorghe – patience after his arrival on loan from Genk.

    But the excitement of the fans is exaggerated after seeing the 21-year fire a late winner against Hibernian at his first start, making Gerrard laughed: & # 39; He didn't help me there, right?

    & # 39; It was a fantastic finish. Looking back at the game you see him come to terms with the physicality here in Scotland and get used to the speed and pace of the first half. But he grew and grew and grew as the game progressed.

    & # 39; What impressed me the most was that even when we fell 1-0 and at 1-1 when the audience got a little tense, he had the courage and the character to to receive in any situation.

    & # 39; It was he who insisted to be the difference. I had asked him and some others during the rest and I certainly got the response I was looking for. I'm sure people will now get carried away because he has scored the winner at his first start.

    & # 39; But he will still take the time to adapt to all the different locations and teams that we encounter. He is certainly a talent. & # 39;

    There were some meaty challenges for the 10-cap Romania international on Wednesday night, but he rubbed himself and rolled the winner home with six minutes to go while Rangers rolled their title declaration on it kept a good track with a 2-1 victory.

    He said: & # 39; It will be slightly different in Scotland than the competition in which he played. In Belgium it is slightly more technical and less aggressive than in Scotland.

    & # 39; But it is what it is. He was aware of it before he arrived. He actually has a better build than he seems, he is a very strong boy.

    & # 39; So he'll be fine. He just kept getting up and that is the impressive thing about him. Other people in that situation may have disappeared, but he rolled up his sleeves and continued. & # 39;

    The victory over Hibs prevented Celtic from disappearing on the horizon, with the Hoops still playing a game seven points ahead. This weekend, the Gerrard team is focusing on Hamilton in the Scottish Cup.

    But the former midfielder of England insists that he doesn't pay more attention to the second domestic knockout competition after he saw his team slip behind their bitter rivals in the competition, after they had already suffered from Hampden heartache in the final of Betfred Cup.

    He said: & # 39; This would be significant even if we had won the League Cup. This is a club that requires that you give everything in every competition, you cannot choose.

    & # 39; That is what we will do to row. We're going to Hamilton in decent shape, especially after the second half of the performance against Hibs, who was exceptionally positive and very close to where we've been most of the season.

    & # 39; Hopefully we can leave from there. & # 39;

    Rugby World Cup 2019: Eddie Jones not getting carried away despite eight-try rout of Ireland


    The best is yet to come: Eddie Jones is not dragged along despite England's eighth attempt to warm up in Ireland

    • England has reached a record point against Ireland
    • The men of Eddie Jones crossed the line eight times in 57-15 demolition of the visitors
    • But the team of England accepts that the victory does not guarantee World Cup glory
    • We will keep our feet on the ground. The best is yet to come & Jones admitted

    There was no euphoria, only realism. Eddie Jones and his players in England were admirably wary of drawing too many blown conclusions from this record-breaking party at Twickenham.

    Within the team there was an acceptance that there was no victory in August, however emphatically, means that the World Cup glory awaits early November. They scored eight attempts and sometimes reduced Ireland to a mob, but they are well aware that what matters is what happens this fall in Japan .

    The head coach set the measured tone and said: & i am not too excited and i am not too optimistic that we are better than we should be. I've seen this happen before. We will keep our feet on the ground. The best has yet to come.

     Eddie Jones and his English players were admirable wary of drawing too many conclusions "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Eddie Jones and his English players were admirable wary to draw too many conclusions

    & # 39; You never know exactly where to go because you don't know where the opposition is. If we are at the foot of Mount Everest, we should already plan to be in base camp three, but if everyone is in base camp five, your plan is wrong. The only thing you know is that you have to keep moving forward and that is difficult.

    & # 39; It's like climbing a mountain. The higher you get, the more uncomfortable it becomes, the ground becomes shaky, your ears start to burn, your nose starts to run. We enter that territory because we have to move forward. & # 39;

    England will try to continue with another heat camp in Treviso, northern Italy. The team flies there on Wednesday for a mix of hard graft and binding. Jones believes there are signs of a tighter team spirit due to more time spent together out of service. The players will undergo heavier fitness work, but may also socialize.

    & # 39; In a test week it is always business, but now we have time to hold sessions & # 39 ;, said Jones. & # 39; It's not all drinking sessions, but we do have some drinking sessions! They are sessions in which the players simply communicate. & # 39;

    If the players of England arrive intact from the game against Italy in Newcastle on Friday, they will fly cheerfully to Tokyo two days later.

    They have every right to follow this demolition of an Ireland team whose own World Cup preparation has been thrown into turmoil.

    Wing Jonny May was torn between caution and optimism. & # 39; They are preseason games, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We are not too high now, we were not too low last week (after defeat to Wales in Cardiff). & # 39; But he couldn't add anything: & # 39; I want everyone to get really excited. If people can leave with a little hope and excitement, that's exactly what we need. & # 39;

    England No. 8 Billy Vunipola followed another impressive performance by adding: & # 39; I would like to see that performance away from home. That is the biggest challenge – going to Japan and doing away with all our fans and the comfort of our dressing room. We can improve enormously. We need performances like this more consistently. & # 39;

    There were many English heroes on a day when two major Jones selection areas were worth seeing: the 10-12-13 axis of George Ford, Owen Farrell and Manu Tuilagi, and Tom Curry and use Sam Underhill one after the other in the back row.

    But the man of the competition was Tuilagi, who scored an attempt and raced around Twickenham like an exuberant bull in a porcelain cupboard.

    Jones praised the exploits of the Leicester center as & # 39; scary & # 39; and his teammates could hardly control their enthusiasm. & # 39; Manu is a great player and when he is at his best, he is an absolute monster & # 39 ;, said Maro Itoje after an attempt and his own strength tour. & # 39; It's great to have him by our side. & # 39;

     But the man of the match was Tuilagi, who scored an effort and drove around in Twickenham "class =" blkBorder img -share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id=] But the man of the match was Tuilagi, who an attempt scored and raged around Twickenham

    May added: “He is a fine-tuned athlete. There are not many people of his size who move as fast as he or as powerfully as he. Everyone, not just the boys from England, but the whole world rugby, is thrilled when he is fit, healthy and plays the way he is. & # 39;

    That last point is not strictly accurate. The sight of Tuilagi in this destructive mode will have spread alarm among defense coaches worldwide.

    When Tuilagi, Joe Cokanasiga, Vunipola and the rest get a platform, England becomes a juggernaut and it can be difficult to stop in Japan. This was not a result with sufficient significance to cause euphoria. But increased English hope is understandable.

    A chaotic day for England captain Joe Root but he kept calm and carried on


    A chaotic day for England Captain Root, but he remained calm and continued … courageous, Joe, to go with the flow!

    • Joe Root landed early while most of the team stayed in their hotel
    • The first thing Root would have seen was Mark Wood who did a fitness test
    • I saw Root ask him if he was fit and at a certain point Wood was far from certain
    • Then it was clear that Jofra Archer was struggling and had to undergo a fitness test

    Joe Root has endured a chaotic, hectic morning Before the first day of this final test, but the English captain impressed me with his calm decision making.

    The English captain had come to the ground early while most of the team stayed in their hotel while it was raining here, and that was definitely the right thing to do because it didn't make sense for them to arrive early and being bored of having nothing to do.

    When it became clear and they arrived, the first thing Root would have seen Mark Wood did a fitness test because after the third test he still felt a little pain in his side. I saw Root ask him if he was fit and at a certain stage Hout was far from certain.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Joe Root ( left) has endured a chaotic, hectic morning ahead of the first day of this final test

    As if that wasn't enough, it became clear that Jofra Archer was struggling and had to undergo his own fitness test. So the captain had to have the same conversation with him and he was clearly worried about getting through five days.

    The day before the game, Root would have considered allowing his fast bowlers to play here at one of the fastest and hottest places in the world, and then it seemed at the last minute that he would be without both.

    The first morning of every test is an absolute nightmare for a captain at the best moments because there is so much to think about and it can only have been so much harder on a morning like this because there are so many was in the air. Root must have thrown that and he was then confronted with a difficult throwing decision because it really was a 50-50 call. Every 20 minutes I saw him looking at this surface and he saw it getting drier and drier.

    It would have been easy, with the rain and both parties paying five seamers, to think it would have seen a bowling day but Root cracks that could really open here on days four and five. The forecast is for warm weather from day three and the field is drying very quickly, so you don't want to be the last club here.

     The first thing Root would have seen was that Mark Wood did a fitness test before the first day "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= The first thing Root would have seen was that Mark Wood did a fitness test ahead of the first day

    England also won the last two Tests first and Root would have been concerned about repeating his mistake with bowling at Centurion, so I think that he definitely made the right decision after winning another pitch. It all reminded me of the Ashes Test in Headingley in 2009 when Matt Prior was wounded during the warm-up and you could see the chaos translated into Andrew Strauss' decision making and then his percussion. Root remained calm and was perfect in everything he did.

    Then that example was followed by the openers of England, where Zak Crawley and Dom Sibley were perfect in everything they did. I said here on Friday about the importance of the ball being left behind for a long time and they are both absolutely right. That made the South African attack bowl fuller and they collapsed and hit the ball. Crawley in particular impressed me and showed that he had an offside game by playing four or five excellent cover drives.

    He has worked with assistant coach Graham Thorpe on opening his bat face and staying a bit more leg-side since Centurion and it has all paid off, with Crawley also scoring at a good time and was always looking to score. The first time Crawley didn't leave the ball that long came when he tried to leave the ball at the last minute, but couldn't get his club out of the way in time.

     Then it became clear that Jofra Archer had a hard time and had to undergo a fitness test of his own "class =" blkBorder img-share "> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Then it became clear that Jofra Archer was having a hard time and a fitness test had to undergo his own

    But he was enormously impressive and that is another sign for another young player on this tour to follow Ollie Pope, Sibley, Dom Bess and Sam Curran. And after years of searching for an opener after Strauss retired, England now has three in Sibley, Crawley and Rory Burns that show some promises.

    They were helped by South Africa's attack without any kind of intensity in that first session at least. In the years of Shaun Pollock, Allan Donald, Makhaya Ntini, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel you were always faced with a fierce challenge from South Africa. Instead, this was initially a nice, line and length, sort of bowling machine from an inexperienced attack without the suspended Kagiso Rabada.

    Captain Faf du Plessis or coach Mark Boucher must have had a strict word with them intermittently because they improved considerably at the time. But although England lost four wickets in that last session, Joe Root's footwork was excellent and he was determined to finish a day where he had every decision right.

    Klopp said: & I am really trying to respond in an appropriate way, but when someone told me I felt nothing, to be honest.

    & # 39; If people say we still had the best start in 50 years, then it's cool, but we just care about what we can get in the summer, what hasn't been done yet, because this competition is so strong.

    & # 39; I have played football for 50 years and if someone told me it would happen, I would have said that it is not possible, so I do not know what is wrong with me (that I feel nothing) )

    & # 39; It's really cool and it's exceptional and I told the guys – after the game we analyzed what we could have done better and should have done better – but it's clearly very exceptional , otherwise teams would have done it before.

    & # 39; Maybe after about five years I think about it, but for now I can only say that with everything we have we try to lay the foundation for the rest of the season and the rest of The season. is quite long.

    & # 39; There are many difficult games that must be played and the next game is especially difficult. We must ensure that we are ready for that.

    & # 39; Today was difficult and we made it a bit too difficult for ourselves, but that is not to forget or underestimate the quality of the other team. & # 39;

    Giorgio Squinzi revived the fortunes of Sassuolo and carried the club into dreamland


    Standing on the banks of the Secchia River, a short drive from Modena in the Emilia Romagna region, with a population of just over 40,000, Sassuolo was never meant to be known for its sporting heritage.

    That was until the intervention of industrial Giorgio Squinzi.

    Club owner and president died 76 years last month, leading to Sassuolo weekend collision in Brescia being postponed and each Series A side holding a minute's silence in tribute.

    " The many sincere messages inspired by his memory … they testify how the Sassuolo patron was appreciated and respected for his human qualities even more than his professional abilities. & # 39;

    There were endless taxes all over Italian football, while UEFA once chose Sassuolo as a model club for progression and Squinzi for its successful ownership.

    During a colorful 17 years at the helm, he took Sassuolo from the Series C2 to the Series A, transformed the fortune of a city and earned legendary status on a journey that was not without much success and controversy.

    Sassuolo fan Fracesco Morini told Sportsmail: & # 39; He invested a lot in the team without expecting anything: he just loved soccer in its pure form. He will be very well remembered by fans. & # 39;

    Squinzi was also sure to enjoy all the moments that the success brought him and his club.

    Sboyzi, an AC Milan fan, joined a bet with his friend Remo Morini, prior to the first ever Inter Milan meeting with rivals in 2013 in the team.

    Should Sassuolo win from the unlikely and the, Morini Squinzi would give a trophy.

    Since that first Series A competition in 2013, Sassuolo has defeated Inter Milan seven times and seven trophies now adorn Squinzi's office.

    Squinzi was initially better known for his investment in bicycles, running the highly successful professional team from Mapei until 2002, when his attention focused on football.

    Before Squinzi took the lead, UC Sassuolo Calcio, founded in 1920, had spent much of its existence in regional competitions before finally taking off to the Series D in 1968.

    The first taste of Serie C2 football came in 1984, but six years later they were relegated again before climbing back in 1998.

    The arrival of Squinzi four years later did not bring immediate success.

    Only in 2006 did they earn a first promotion, via the play-offs, to begin the long climb of the competitions.

    [1945908] Massimilliano was the boss of Sassuolo before he achieved great success at Juventus "class =" blkBorder img-share "/>

    Squinzi and his advisors had a keen eye for emerging managers – during a season at Sassuolo in 2007-08, future five-time Scudetto winner Massimiliano Allegri led the club for the first time to an unlikely Series C1 triumph and to Series B.

    After a difficult period of struggling with Lecce, Eusebio Di Francesco would get a second chance in 2012 from Squinzi in the B series.

    The owner, however, failed to lure Filipo Inzhagi to the club and turned to Alberto Malesani. He managed five games and no wins before he left and cam di Francesco back.

    After securing survival with a 17th place, Di Francesco was not ready there and helped the club to 12th and in 2016 a sixth place that its side saw Europa League football for the first time ever.

    Fittingly, they announced themselves with a 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao – the culmination of a group-stage exit.

    Matteo Politano was signed in 2015 and now plays for Inter Milan and the Italian national side. Sime Vrsaljko is now on Inter Milan via Atletico Madrid

    The crown jewel is of course Domenico Berardi. At the club since the age of 16, he made his 18-year debut in the Series B promotion-winning season. After declining interest from Juventus, he has five senior caps in Italy and 234 club performances out of 25, the second highest in Sassuolo's history.

    The highest, with 439, is Francesco Magnanelli, the last remaining veteran of any promotion under Squinzi. Now 34 and in his 13th season with the club, Magnanelli played in each division plus the Europa League.

    In Sassuolo & # 39; s match day program before being confronted with Inter Milan, Magnanelli paid tribute to the president: & # 39; a forward-looking president, the president who looked beyond the single game and attempted the swing to build something bigger and it lasted for a long time. & # 39;

    Squinzi bought the club ahead and bought the rights of the Citta del Tricolore Stadium with 21,584 capacity in Reggio Emilia – rename the Mapei Stadium – in an auction in 2013 and Sassuolo moved there.

    Squinzi made sure that his club was the first of three in Serie A – alongside Juventus and Udinese – who had their own stadium, even if it was outside the city limits of Sassuolo.

    However, the small but vocal Nord Curve ultrasound of the club did not like that, which at the time said: & # 39; How often have we reconfirmed our sense of belonging and love for our city and how important it is? is to constantly make us feel like guests; but unfortunately economic interests have prevailed over the passion and attachment to our colors … Once again we do not belong in this stadium. & # 39;

    Squinzi, however, continued and the club introduced an innovative approach to ticketing, with 23 executive boxes available, which helped the club generate consistent matchday revenue.

    That was his sense of philanthropy that he allowed local side and previous owners Reggiana – a former Series A side that went bankrupt and reformed into Series C in 2018 – to play there.

    However, fans have deep affection for Squinzi.

    Morini said: & Sassuolo saw the chance of creating a really good team, also for young players.

    "This is the main reason that everyone loved him, because for him football was first and foremost entertainment and sport, things always came last."

    Despite minor dissatisfaction, such a foresight and prudence was a feature of the protection of Squinzi. . A sponsorship agreement of € 22 million with his own company Mapei – the most lucrative in Series A – ensured that the club had the means to compete at the highest level.

    When promotion to Series A was sealed in 2013, Squinzi was quick to deliver the necessary upgrades – new scoreboards, new grass and refurbished seats were introduced to ensure that the club met their new environment.

    In an era of unpredictable owners leading to ruin in the pursuit of glory, Squinzi stands almost alone as a president who has brought unprecedented success and stability to a true minnow.

    His side now has a last chance to say a suitable goodbye.

    & # 39; I certainly understand, but he still had half an hour to go, so he might regret it.

    & # 39; I still felt like Liverpool because they played so well, but it got nervous. & # 39;

    Jurgen Klopp refuses to get carried away after Liverpool extend Premier League win streak to 16


    & # 39; I am not interested in the number & # 39 ;: Jurgen Klopp refuses to be dragged after Liverpool extends his Premier League win streak to 16

    • Liverpool defeated Sheffield United 1- 0 in the Premier League on Sunday
    • Georginio Wijnaldum forced a blunder from Dean Henderson for the winner
    • The Reds missed the offensive spark they had exhibited this season so far

    Left Bramall Lane with a bottle of bubbles from Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder, but he didn't sound like a man about to enter the celebration.

    Admittedly, this was one of those satisfying victories that Liverpool improved] & # 39; s references as potential title winners carved out of heavy labor on a day when they were not very fluent and a good luck.

    These are, however, very early days. Liverpool passed similar character tests last season and had to settle for second place

<p> <noscript> <img id= Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp refuses to be carried away after the strong start of his team

    That has left its mark. Klopp is therefore not carried away by seven wins out of seven and a cushion with five points. Or 16 consecutive wins in the Premier League that extends to March, the last time his team dropped points, in a goalless derby in Goodison Park.

    & # 39; I am not interested in the number, & # 39; Klopp said. It's just a figure. You can only create such a series if you are always in the next job. The next job is Salzburg in a different league and then Leicester City, and that will be difficult. & # 39;

    If they break the record of 18 consecutive Premier League victories, Sep by City in 2017-18, they must beat Leicester, Manchester United and Tottenham. "It doesn't sound so likely," Klopp smiled.

    So he thanked Wilder for the champagne – a token of recognition for winning the FIFA Coach of the Year – and the managers shared a beer and talked about football.

     Georginio Wijnaldum unleashed a volley to open the score in the late stages of the game "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>

     <img id= Dean Henderson was left with his head in his hands after his blunder allowed the ball in

    & # 39; He is a sober guy, & # 39; Wilder said. It's great to be in a room with him. It's open and very refreshing, because I don't get the feeling that managers in the Premier League want to do that. That's a little disappointing because I think it's important that people chat because we all want the same thing. We are all after a win. & # 39;

    They are on the other side of the spectrum when it comes to budget and expectations, but these are managers with a common bond, committed to harnessing the energy of their passionate fans by producing attacking football from a bold brand.

    Neither is particularly comfortable to roast his performance with a whistle of effervescence. "I am not a connoisseur," confessed Wilder.

    Klopp praised Sheffield United, and compared them to Mainz, the club with which he won promotion in Germany, and noted the combined power of their players, supporters, and manager.

    & # 39; A good unit, & # 39; he called the sheets. & # 39; A real wall, & # 39; he shouted to their fans. Regarding Wilder's presence on the sidelines, he said: & # 39; I thought I was loud, but he is really loud. & # 39;

    It was a day of mutual admiration. Also a day when Liverpool needed their middle halves to sit on top of their game. Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk were quick and aware, strong in the air, the best players on the field.

    The illustrious front three failed. It could be different if Sadio Mane had converted one of the two clear chances in the first half and tempted Sheffield United to take more risks. The overlapping middle halves of Wilder remained tied. And the result would have been more emphatic if Mohamed Salah had not been thwarted by Dean Henderson when he was completely clean towards the end. through his legs from Georginio Wijnaldum. & # 39; We must win every game & # 39 ;, said Van Dijk. & # 39; It does not matter how the goal is achieved. & # 39;

    The champagne can stay on ice until spring. This is the transplant and beer season. And that fits with Klopp.
