Arteta is playing Pepe out of position at Arsenal – Robson

first_imgFormer Arsenal midfielder, Stewart Robson, believes Mikel Arteta is playing Nicolas Pepe out of position. The Ivorian has failed to live up to his price-tag after becoming Arsenal’s most expensive player last summer. But Robson thinks it is too early to judge Pepe, believing Arteta must find his best position. “Slightly too early [to call him a flop],” Robson told ESPN.Advertisement “He hasn’t been a great success this season so far. He’s had one or two good games, couple of good free-kicks. I’m not sure they’ve found the right position for him. “They’ve tried him on the right-wing where he spent most of his time in France. Then they tried to play him upfront for a couple of games. read also:Pepe is a great player with big resources, says Leeds boss “Yet he’s got pace, he can do lots of things. At the moment they haven’t got the best out of him, he doesn’t look a confident player. So he’s a flop at the moment but I think he can get better next year under [Mikel] Arteta.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentBest Car Manufacturers In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThe Highest Paid Football Players In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?

Aguero defends Messi amid Argentina criticism

first_img Loading… Messi has won everything on offer during his time as a Barcelona player, as the forward has won the Champions League, La Liga, UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup, Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana while emerging as one of the game’s most decorated stars on the club level. However, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner is yet to taste senior success in an Argentina jersey following a runners-up finish at the 2014 World Cup, having also reached back-to-back Copa America finals in 2015 and 2016, with Messi missing a crucial penalty in a shootout loss to Chile in the latter finale. Messi excluded himself from international selection after Argentina’s last-16 exit to France at the 2018 World Cup, before returning and helping the country to the Copa America semi-final last year. The 32-year-old continues to be criticised for his Argentina performances but countryman Aguero defended his team-mate by praising Messi’s commitment to the group. “I do not understand those who criticise him in the national team,” Aguero told TyC Sports. “He is the first to suffer and continues to come.” The coronavirus pandemic has brought sport to a standstill, with the Premier League and La Liga among the leagues on hiatus, while the 2020 Copa America has been pushed back to next year. The Premier League has been suspended since last month and it remains to be seen when, and if, the 2019-20 campaign will resume. Manchester City star Aguero is contracted until 2021 and the Argentine forward has been linked with a return to boyhood club Independiente. But Aguero does not know what the future holds, adding: “For now, I’m not thinking about what to do. With all this, the clubs are having problems. read also:Messi in disagreement with Barca’s Coutinho transfer preference “Up until next year, it can be extended for two months or more. There are players who end contracts this year and if it is played in July, August or September, the clubs are going to have problems. “I don’t know if they can renew with players for three months or six. The first thing is to end this season and hit everything next.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Sergio Aguero says that he does not understand criticism directed at Lionel Messi for Argentina, insisting the superstar is the “first to suffer ” and continues to make himself available for the national team despite all the negativity surrounding his international career.

Cricket News How Virat Kohli holds a crucial edge in Boxing Day Test vs Australia?

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Virat Kohli won a crucial toss and opted to bat in the Boxing Day Test against Australia. India made a good start with Mayank Agarwal slamming a fifty on debut and shared solid stands of 40 and fifty-plus with Hanuma Vihari and Cheteshwar Pujara. India’s progress on this wicket stems from the fact that the team is in a confident mood. The reason –numbers which favour Kohli when he wins the toss. In the past couple of seasons, Kohli’s Indian cricket team has gained the upper hand whenever they have won the toss, be it at home or in overseas Tests. Under Kohli’s captaincy, the team has adopted the mantra that winning the toss gives them a crucial edge in the outcome of the game.In 45 Tests that Kohli has captained, he has won the toss 21 times which includes the toss result in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. Out of the 20 times he has won the toss, Kohli has tasted success in 17 games while the other three were drawn. His stats improve in overseas conditions. In eight Tests, excluding the MCG Test, Kohli has won seven games and drawn just one game. His only drawn game outside of India was the 2015 one-off Test against Bangladesh in Fatullah, which was marred by rain.Read More | Mayank Agarwal blasts fifty on debut in Boxing Day Test vs AustraliaOut of all his seven overseas Test wins, two have come in 2018. In the Johannesburg Test against South Africa, Kohli won the toss on a difficult wicket and chose to bat. The Indian cricket team put up a solid fight as they won the match by 63 runs to salvage some pride in a series which they had lost the series 1-2 due to heavy losses in Cape Town and Centurion.Read More | Agarwal, Vihari achieve a 1st for India in Boxing Day after 500 TestsIn the Adelaide Test against Australia, Kohli once again won the toss and had no hesitation in batting first and Cheteshwar Pujara’s century and fifty helped India secure a tense 31-run win. The victory was the first time India had won the first match in a Test series Down Under. With Kohli winning the toss in Melbourne, India would be hoping that they can create history and secure a win as they look to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the four-match series and break their jinx of not securing a Test series win in Australia. last_img read more
