Huge blow for West Ham as midfielder suffers ACL injury days…

first_imgThere’s some very bad news coming out of Argentina’s official Twitter account this morning for West Ham fans: Manuel Lanzini is out of the World Cup. Not only that, but it’s extremely likely the attacking midfielder will miss a chunk of the upcoming season, as he damaged the ACL in his right knee in training on Friday morning.What happens next for the Hammers star, who was a key member of David Moyes’ team towards the end of last season, has yet to be announced.The standard procedure in these cases would be surgery, and then around six months or so of rehabilitation, but it all depends on how serious the injury is.Embed from Getty ImagesHowever, the use of ‘rotura’ by the Argentina national team’s Twitter account in their tweet suggests it’s either a partial or complete tear.The 25-year-old, who has four caps for his country, made 29 appearances for West Ham last season, scoring five goals and picking nine assists along the way.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoTheTopFiveVPNNetflix Users In The Hong Kong, Use This To Enjoy US Netflix ShowsTheTopFiveVPNUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSingles50Tung Chung: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually WorksSingles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoHero WarsGetting this treasure is impossible!

Player’s exit from Manchester City ‘confirmed’ – Makes assessment of his…

first_imgLast summer, Thierry Ambrose joined FC Metz on loan from Manchester City and the French club retain an option to make the forward’s stay permanent. The LFP confirmed the 2019/20 season has ended early due to the Covid-19 crisis. Paris Saint-Germain were crowned champions, while Metz will continue in the top flight next season.On May 6th, Républicain Lorrain reported the automatic option to buy the 23-year-old ‘will be triggered’ since the Ligue 1 side avoided relegation.Ambrose joined the English club’s academy in 2013, but failed to make a single appearance for their first team.After spending seven years at City, Foot Mercato claims his move from the English champions to Metz is now ‘confirmed’.The player has given an interview to Foot Mercato, and was asked to make an assessment of his time with the Premier League winners.“I make a good assessment. I arrived very young, I finished best player with the youth team, top scorer, I won the championship, I made it to the bench (of the first team). I learned a lot there,” he said.Embed from Getty Images“My only regret is that I didn’t go there [the first team]. I think I had a chance at one point and I injured my cruciate. “So, there is not even a real regret, when you hurt yourself, that’s how it is. But I learned a lot and I know that until the end of my life I could say that I played at City. It’s beautiful!”When quizzed what he will do if the door opens again to join Manchester City, Ambrose said: “Of course! It’s there in the back of my head.“City is not a club that closes the door. I know if you have a great season, this is a club that can buy you.”The Frenchman explained how his time at City has helped him to have a different view towards the way the sport is played today.“I like to play football with possession and it is largely thanks to them. In everything I do now, I’m looking for a possession game and trying to understand better why it matters. In the tactical and mental aspect, I learned a lot,” the attacker stressed.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoMake Money Online | Search AdsDo You Want To Make Money Online?

‘Second-string Arsenal should have beaten Saints’ – Holding laments cup upset

first_img1 Rob Holding in action in Arsenal’s defeat to Southampton Rob Holding believes Arsenal’s much-changed side was good enough to win the EFL Cup, despite seeing them crash out against Southampton on Wednesday.Arsene Wenger made ten changes to the team that had beaten Bournemouth in their Premier League outing at the weekend, but those who came into the starting line-up failed to rise to the occasion.Jordy Clasie’s first goal for Southampton was followed up by a smart Ryan Bertrand finish as Saints, who made eight changes of their own, won 2-0 and eased through into a semi-final against Liverpool.Wenger defended his decision, saying the changes were not the “problem”, and defender Holding – one of those drafted into the rotated side – echoed the views of his boss.“You look at the players we had out, there were some big players,” he said.“You think with the strength of the squad, a second string team can get all the way – but it wasn’t to be.“It was a chance to get some silverware at the end of the season, so I’m disappointed to be out of the competition.“There’s not much more I can say really. We’ve just got to learn from it and it’ll only help us in the coming years.”The Emirates Stadium was practically half-empty by the time the full-time whistle was blown, and it was greeted by a chorus of jeers from frustrated Arsenal fans as they succumbed to their first defeat since the opening weekend of the season.The League Cup, in all of its guises, has eluded Wenger throughout his 20 years as Arsenal boss and he often treats the competition as a way of blooding his young players.But the Gunners sit fourth in the Premier League and it is almost certain they will progress in their Champions League group as runners-up, so this has been seen as another missed opportunity.last_img read more
