& # 39; Sometimes it was pretty messy, but from my point of view there are no worries & he said. "Our season starts next Sunday, so we will concentrate on that.
" Everyone knows that the players who are missing are important players to us. That's a fact.
& # 39; There is much more to join the team. There is a reason why we are European champions. We have to stay calm, we want to win games.
& # 39; But we must be at our highest level (on Sunday). If we play like this, we won't win the Community Shield, it's that simple.
& # 39; We have a good week to also prepare ourselves with a friendly, which is good for the boys who will be back. We will definitely be ready for the city. & # 39;
& # 39; I saw it coming … it wouldn't work because he wasn't listening & # 39 ;: Andy Ruiz Jr. trainer Manny Robles confirms that the couple has SPLIT after losing to Anthony Joshua and says & none of us had control over him & # 39;
- Andy Ruiz Jr shared with trainer Manny Robles after losing to Anthony Joshua
- The Mexican shocked the world by stopping the Brit in New York last summer
- But Joshua surpassed him in December in Saudi Arabia to win back his belts
- Robles searched for Ruiz and said that he did not listen to the advice given to him
Andy Ruiz Jr said goodbye to his trainer Manny Robles after his rematch loss to Anthony Joshua .
The Mexican was surpassed in December by the British heavyweight in Saudi Arabia when he lost through a unanimous decision, which gave his gift titles back to Joshua after a stunning upset last summer.
Ruiz Jr. stopped Joshua in Madison Square Garden last June to claim the IBF, IBO, WBA Super and WBO belts, but he admitted too much to eat and party in the aftermath of his historic victory, and Robles said the split was inevitable.
Andy Ruiz Jr no longer works with Manny Robles, left, after losing to Anthony Joshua
Speaking until ESPN he said his hunter had gotten out of hand in the run-up to the crucial rematch, with the man he admitted himself he & # 39; wished he had taken it more seriously & # 39;
But he added that the relationship would never work in the future because Ruiz Jr & # 39; did not listen & & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I've seen it coming, I'll be honest, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Andy just did what he wanted to do. The father, clearly because he was the manager, simply had no control over his son. By the way, none of us was in control.
& # 39; Fortunately Andy took the blame and did not sit there as a majority of the hunters and blamed the coach. & # 39;
After his one-sided loss to Joshua, Ruiz said that his emotional victory over his rival last year had put him on cloud nine and had been celebrated a little too far.
& # 39; I think I ate everything .. EVERYTHING … that's why I arrived so much, & he said.
& # 39; I had too much fun, I celebrated too much. Even out of shape, even the way I trained back and forth (between Mexico and California) … f ******, I did pretty well, dude! I did quite well! But I wish I had taken it more seriously. & # 39;
Ruiz Jr. will now be looking for a new coach for 2020 as he strives to put himself back on the heavyweight card, and Robles said the decision was made by the promoter's promoter Al Haymon to give him a new start.
& # 39; They apparently said they didn't want the same to repeat themselves again, & # 39; Robles continued.
& # 39; It's what it is, I don't know what to tell you. It is not the first time it has happened to me. I am absolutely grateful and blessed that I was able to experience everything that I could experience in 2019
& I mean, we have made history, and I have to be grateful for that. I must be grateful to Andy and his father for giving me the opportunity to be part of something special, to have made history – for him to become the first Mexican heavyweight champion in the world. & # 39;
While Ruiz will be looking to start his year with a win, that has not prevented Eddie Hearn from tempting the Mexican with a huge offer to fight against Dillian Whyte.
The promoter admitted that he waited to hear back from the Ruiz team after making an improved offer, although it is thought that after his harmful loss he still has to return to training and get back into shape for that has to come. a huge competition.

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer eat together to donate more than £ 132,000 to the bushfire aid in Australia … but Canadian player throws the & # 39; selfish & # 39; tennis superstars because they are urged to protest the playing conditions at the Australian Open
- Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer took part in a charity exhibition on Wednesday
- ] The star names of tennis were found in Melbourne for the event & # 39; Rally for Relief & # 39;
- Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Coco Gauff and Nick Kyrgios also include
- But Brayden Schnur feels better names this week
Nadal and Federer, with 39 Grand Slams between them, came together to donate $ 250,000 to the case, which is more than £ 132,000.
Despite their support, not everyone is satisfied with two of the game's threats, while Canadian player Brayden Schnur is unhappy that Nadal and Federer did not support those in the Australian Open who qualified for the circumstances in which they become faced in Melbourne .
Schnur, the world number 103 who, despite the smoky atmosphere, won his first round qualifying, was critical of players at the top of the ranking because they did not come out and support those who are confronted with the elements this week.
& # 39; the best guys are coming – Roger and Rafa are a bit themselves in thinking about themselves and their careers, & Schnur told the Australian Associated Press .
& # 39; Because they're almost at the end and they're all thinking about their legacy and not thinking about the sport itself and trying to do what's good for the sport – so those guys have to step up.
& # 39; You feel a super dryness in your throat. That is not 100 percent normal and players with asthma now have a huge disadvantage. & # 39;
The game was delayed on Wednesday for two hours as the tournament officials waited for the smoky haze to disappear, and the game of the day was also aborted after thunder and heavy rain in the evening.
The poor air quality caused by the Australian forest fires caused chaos at the start of the qualifying tournament, with Dalila Jakupovic Tuesday had to remove after a cough on the job.
In the evening on Wednesday, however, at the Rod Laver Arena, many of the top players of tennis played an exhibition to raise money for the Australian bushfire relief.
Like Federer, Nadal, Williams and Novak Djokovic, Coco Gauff, Caroline Wozniacki and Nick Kyrgios were among a number of players who supported the cause by playing in the light-hearted exhibition.
& # 39; In principle, far too much was made of it. I've never had a problem with Marc & # 39 ;: Manuel Neuer insists there is no arguing with a rival goalkeeper to let Stegen fight as a pair to be number 1 in Germany
& # 39; In principle, too much was made of it, & # 39; Neuer told Kicker . & # 39; I've never had a problem with Marc.
& # 39; We train together for the national team, but we don't call each other when he plays with Barcelona or I play with Bayern, and we wish ourselves the best of luck.
We are having breakfast together, having a normal conversation – as teammates, not as competitors. Each of us tries to show our best performance for the team so that we can be successful.
& # 39; This is important because we play in a team. In football it's not like handball with clapping and hugging and you hold the next seven meters. Soccer is a different culture. & # 39;
Nick Kyrgios ready to regain a fight with Rafael Nadal as Aussie maverick proves the court jester with first round victory to set up grudge contest against two-time Wimbledon champion
- Rafael Nadal beaten Yuichi suggests in their first round meeting on Court No. 1
- The 32-year-old Spaniard won 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 to meet Nick Kyrgios
- Controversial Australian beat Nadal of the tournament in 2014
There is precious little blood on the lawns of the All England Club over the years, but that could change when Rafael Nadal takes on Nick Kyrgios.
Both men won on Tuesday to set up a blockbuster second-round collision. With all the snipping back and forth in the last couple of months, this comes as close as tennis comes to a wreck match.
& # 39; I'm not sure if I and Rafa de Dog & Fox could end up drinking a beer together, & # 39; Kyrgios summarized, referring to a Wimbledon watering hole. & # 39; I get along with people, some people. We have a mutual respect, but that's about it. & # 39;
Kyrgios was the first to book his place in the second round after a wildly entertaining match against fellow Australian Jordan Thompson. Nadal accompanied him with a more prosaic 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 thrashing of Japanese qualification Yuichi Sugita on Court 1.
Now they will re-record their fourth round of 2014 in which a then 19- year-old Kyrgios announced itself with a huge upset.
Their mutual confrontation stands at three each and the score in this year's verbal war is also about. In February, Nadal said that Kyrgios & # 39; has no respect for the public, the rival and themselves. & # 39;
The 33-year-old Spanish coach and uncle of the Spaniard, Toni, added that the Australian lacks & # 39; education.
The 24-year-old – old replied that the Nadal clan were just bad losers and Rafa & # 39; salty & # 39; and Toni a & # 39; idiot & # 39; called. The feud was partly fueled by a forearm against Nadal in Acapulco and Kyrgios could well repeat that tactic on Thursday, as he did on Tuesday against Thompson.
Love him or disgust him, the suggestion that Kyrgios is & # 39; bad for tennis & # 39; is absurd. The man is a box office and a great asset to the sport. His clownish antics had the crowd on Court 3 screaming with joy and screams with laughter.
There were furious attacks on the referee, a cricket shot, a thrown fourth set and an absurd number of shots between the legs and full-length dives. But there was also a great service to the world, no. 43 won 7-6, 3-6, 7-6, 0-6, 6-1.
Kyrgios was at its best at the start of the game, but that did not last long.
bent over the net" Does he get a fine? ", he asked the referee after a trick The phone call from a line judge.
"I play for hundreds of thousands of dollars and he makes an idiot. Waking up. & # 39;
Kyrgios won only five points in an 18-minute fourth set in which he made many efforts as a Brexit Party member in Strasbourg. & # 39; If a boxer puts down his hands, does that mean he is not trying? & he said, "It could be a tactic, wouldn't it?"
Kyrgios defended his antics. "Just because I am different, it causes a stir. If everyone were the same, it would be very boring, would it not?"
Nadal himself had a cunning excavation & # 39; He is a very dangerous player when he wants to play tennis, & he said. & # 39; And normally against the top players he wants to play tennis. & # 39;
