Champions league: Liverpool wapoteza, Dortmund yaadhibu PSG

Liverpool jana ilipoteza 1-0 katika mkondo wa kwanza wa raundi ya 16 ya michuano ya ligi ya mabingwa mikononi mwa Atletico Madrid ugani Wanda Metropolitan.

The Reds ambao wamekuwa katika fomu nzuri walipewa dozi wakati Atletico walipowatoa kijasho kwa kuwazuia kufunga. Mohamed Salah, na Jordan Henderson walikosa nafasi hizo.

Kwingineko Erling Haaland aliendeleza ufungaji mabao msimu huu kwa kuongeza mawili na kuwapa Borussia Dortmund ushindi wa 2-1 dhidi ya Paris St-Germain.

Mino Raiola anapanga kufanya mazungumzo na meneja wa Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, akisisitiza hakuna mkwaruzano kati yao, kufuatia matamashi aliyoyatoa kuhusu Paul Pogba.

Raiola, ambaye ni ajenti wa kiungo huyo aliandika kwenye mitandao ya kijamii kuwa Pogba si mali yake wala ya Solskjaer, baada ya meneja huyo wa United awali kusema kua Paul ni mchezaji wake na sio wa Mino.

Solskjaer aliulizwa kutoa maoni yake kuhusu matamshi ya Mino na akasema huenda hatazungumza na Pogba au Raiola kuhusu suala hilo. Pogba anaendelea kuhusishwa na uhamisho kutoka Old Trafford.

Son Heung-Min wa Tottenham atakosa muda wa msimu uliosalia baada ya kuvunjika mkono dhidi ya Aston Villa jumapili.

Son atalazimika kufanyiwa upasuaji kwa jeraha hilo alilolipata baada ya kugongana na Ezri Konsa wa Villa. Taarifa kutoka Tottenham zinasema kuwa atakosa wiki kadha lakini Jose Mourinho anasema huenda isiwe hivyo. Son amekuwa mchezaji wao anayetegemewa zaidi tangu Harry Kane kukaa nje, akiwa amefunga mabao sita katika mechi tano alizocheza mwisho.

Kiungo Mfaransa Matteo Guendouzi mwenye umri wa miaka 20, anakabiliwa na mapambano ya kusalia katika klabu ya Arsenal, baaada ya kuachwa kwenye kikosi cha klabu hiyo kwenye mchezo wa Jumapili dhidi ya Newcastle.

Guendouzi aliachwa baada ya kugombana na kocha wa Arsenal Mikel Arteta na makocha wasaidizi wakati wa mapumziko mafupi ya katikati ya msimu jijini Dubai.

Ancelotti apigwa kalamu na Napoli, Chelsea na Liverpool wafuzu Champions League

Carlo Ancelotti amepigwa kalamu kama Kocha wa Napoli baada ya kuhudumu kwa kipindi cha miezi 19. Vyombo vya habari vya Kiitaliano vilitangaza mapema jana kuwa Mkufunzi wa zamani wa AC Milan Gennaro Gattuso ndiye anatarajiwa kuongiza klabu hiyo.

Napoli ilitangaza kutimuliwa kwake saa chache baada ya kupigwa mabao  4-0 na Genk. Mwezi uliopita Mkufunzi huyo na wachezaji wa Napoli walikuwa kwenye malumbano na rais Aurelio de Laurentiis baada ya kutoa agizo kwa timu hiyo kufanya mazoezi kwa wiki moja jambo alilokataa Ancelotti na Wachezaji wake.

Bologna wamewasiliana na klabu mbili za ligi ya Premia kuhusu mshambulizi wa Wolves Patrick Cutrone, mwenye umri wa miaka  21, na mshambulizi wa Everton mwenye umri wa miaka 19 Moise Kean. Mkurugenzi wa Bologna Walter Sabatini amesema hakuna uwezekano wowote wa kumsajili Zlatan Ibrahimovic baada ya kufichua kwamba mchezaji huyo mwenye umri wa miaka thelathini na minane  tayari ameamua  atakakohamia.

 

Sofapaka imeandikisha ushindi wake wa sita kwenye ligi kuu nchini KPL baada ya kuichapa Kisumu All Stars mabao 2-1 hapo jana kwenye uga wa  Kenyatta uliojaa matope mjini Machakos.

Ushindi wa mabingwa hao wa mwaka 2009 uliipelekea Kisumu kupoteza mechi yake ya 8. Aidha Nahodha wa All Stars Gerishom Arabe amelalamikia hali mbovu ya uwanja huo.

 

Origi goes from ‘worst striker’ to striking gold in Liverpool’s Champions League triumph 

For many of Liverpool’s players, the fuel for Saturday night’s triumph derived from the heartache of Kiev a year earlier.

Yet for Divock Origi the redemption story goes back three years to Switzerland and a different European final altogether.

These were early days in Jurgen Klopp’s reign but Origi demonstrated his potential as Liverpool hit their stride in the spring of 2016. The portents of his big-match temperament came early.

Divock Origi poses for a photo after helping Liverpool clinch the Champions League trophy

Origi scored home and away in the two-legged Europa League corker against Borussia Dortmund and then opened the scoring in a 4-0 victory over Merseyside rivals Everton. Yet it was in the 50th minute of that derby that the trajectory of the Belgian’s Liverpool career altered.

A dreadful lunge by Ramiro Funes Mori all but ended Origi’s season. A dash back from injury saw Origi make the bench for the Europa League final against Sevilla but a 21-minute substitute appearance yielded only a yellow card in a dismal 3-1 defeat for Liverpool.

In the time that has passed, Origi must have wondered whether he would ever truly belong on Merseyside. He hit double figures in his first two seasons at the club yet Origi’s career has been a curious one riddled by injuries and inconsistency though also punctuated by crucial goals.

The substitute scores an 87th-minute goal against Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano

But talk about a sense of occasion. Origi is, for example, his country’s youngest goalscorer at a World Cup, rising to prominence when he scored an 88th-minute winner against Russia in Brazil’s Maracana stadium aged 19 in 2014. As a reward, he took a selfie with the King of Belgium and a national park named a dolphin after him.

Liverpool’s most enduring moments of this season have been cast in stone by Origi. The weird and wacky injury-time winner against Everton, the last-gasp header at Newcastle, two swishes of the boot against Barcelona and now the goal that clinched Champions League final glory against Tottenham.

On the day of Origi’s headed goal against Everton it was, remarkably, the first time he had appeared in Liverpool colours in the Premier League for 16 months.

Arsenal have just £45m to spend after missing out on a Champions League spot

Arsenal will embark on one of the biggest overhauls in their recent history with a transfer budget of just £45million.

Manager Unai Emery will tell the club his squad needs significant rebuilding work ahead of next season when he meets head of football Raul Sanllehi and chief executive Vinai Venkatesham in the coming days.

But the failure to qualify for the Champions League for the third consecutive season following Wednesday’s crushing defeat by Chelsea in the Europa League final has delivered a major blow to plans to reshape his squad.

The club’s finances are in a disarray due to crippling wage bill and a shortfall in income as they pay the price for their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Emery could have had as much as £90m to spend on players had they defeated the Blues in Baku.

But the Gunners boss knows he must now come to terms with a significantly reduced budget.

TRANSFERS TARGETS

Plans to launch a big-money move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha are now likely to be shelved.

Arsenal would struggle to finance a move for £80m-rated Zaha while the forward has made clear he wants to play Champions League football which rules out the Gunners.

Sportsmail understands Arsenal have enquired about Leicester’s James Maddison but have been quoted £60m.

Wilfried Zaha is a target for the Gunners but the transfer fee could be too much for them

The England Under 21 international would be interested in a move to the Emirates, but Arsenal’s finances simply won’t stretch that far.

The club’s hopes of signing RB Leipzig’s highly-rated young French under-21 defender Dayot Upamecano also ended with their Europa League final defeat.

The 20 year-old is valued at around £65m and Arsenal had held initial talks over a deal but they needed Champions League football to stand a chance of persuading Upamecano to leave Germany.

It means the Gunners will have to look for cheaper alternatives this summer. Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser is a target and could be obtainable for £30million. They also have an interest in Getafe defender Djene Dakonam.

Sportsmail understands Arsenal have enquired about Leicester’s James Maddison

HEADING FOR THE EXIT

The Gunners will hope to supplement their transfer budget by offloading a number of their highly-paid stars to reduce their astronomical wage bill.

Emery wants to sell the club’s highest earner Mesut Ozil, who earns £350,000 per week, but know his wages will be a huge stumbling block and it is understood the Gunners would be willing to subsidise a portion of Ozil’s wages to facilitate his exit.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who arrive as part of the deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United last year and Shkodran Mustafi, who joined the club in a £35m deal in 2016, are among the players Arsenal will consider offers for.

With the departure of Aaron Ramsey on a free to Juventus, Danny Welbeck out of contract and Petr Cech retiring Arsenal hope to have cleared up to £50m off their wage bill by the end of the transfer window.

Mesut Ozil could leave the club to free up £350,000 on the Arsenal wage bill

Liverpool will win the Champions League trophy – Ghost Mulee

Soon after Kenya’s sons, Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama and Liverpool’s Divock Origi booked their tickets to the Champions League finals, we caught up with former Harambee Stars coach, Ghost Mulee to get his reaction.

Mulee was as elated as any Kenyan to have what is now known as a ‘Kenyan derby’ with all eyes on Harambee Stars captain Wanyama.

How Origi and dad Mike Okoth produced a twin performance 22 years apart

Wanyama will become only the second Kenyan to feature in a Champions League final after his elder brother, McDonald Mariga in 2010.

After come back victories by both teams against Barcelona and Ajax, Mulee found it hard to predict which of the English side will go on to claim European glory.

He however believes Liverpool, who came from a deep hole to oust Barcelona in a memorable match, will go on to win the trophy.

However, he doesn’t see them winning their 6th Champions league trophy in 90 minutes but will rely heavily on shoot outs.

June 1st I am torn in between the two teams.  I was supporting Tottenham because there was a Kenyan, I was supporting Liverpool because there was a Kenyan.

Now if you ask me I think this game will go to the wire, I don’t think there will be a clear winner in 90 minutes and it will head into extra time where the penalties will decide. It is hard to decide but I think Liverpool will win. 

Will Mulee be attending the finals which will be held in Madrid, Spain?

I am so broke I was looking at the ticket prices mama Mia I was nearly collapsing!

Crazy night! Tottenham knock Manchester City out of Champions League

Tottenham yesterday knocked out Manchester City out of the champions league on away goal in a thrilling match that saw Manchester City win 4-3 with the game ending four all on aggregate.

The match started on high note as Raheem Sterling gave City a one nil lead in the fourth minute but four minutes later Spurs were leading 2-1 courtesy of Son Heung-min two goals.

Sterling dives to the floor in front of the City supporters during the European contest

City were back on level through Bernado Silva’s deflected shot and Raheem Sterling put them ahead in the 20th minute. Sergio Aguero’s second half goal appeared to have sealed City’s fate but there was still more drama as Fernando Llorente goal was confirmed by VAR.

City appeared to have scored the winning goal through Sterling but the the goal was ruled offside by VAR as Spurs matched to semi finals on away goal rule.

Fernando Llorente proved the difference as he scored the vital third away goal at the Etihad

There were four minutes to go before half-time when Mauricio Pochettino made one of the boldest calls of his managerial career. Moussa Sissoko, a strong-running midfielder, limped slowly from the pitch; Fernando Llorente came on.

Tottenham were still going through, at the time, but Pochettino did not favour caution. He had plenty of defensive cover on the bench. He chose to introduce a striker, tinker with the team shape. Some 32 minutes later, Llorente would score the goal that sent Tottenham through to the Champions League semi-final. Fortune favours the brave; or, to dare is to do, as they like to say in that part of north London

Elsewhere, Liverpool booked a semi final date with Barcelona as they beat Porto 4-1 to win 6-1 on aggregate.
