Osimhen rejects EPL move

first_imgRelatedPosts Napoli Coach: Osimhen young lad with old brain Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, does not dream of moving to the Premier League this summer, according to his agent.Osimhen signed for Lille last summer and enjoyed a fruitful debut campaign, which saw him net 18 goals and grab six assists before the French league season was curtailed last month. The 21-year-old’s fine form in front of goal led to reports linking him with a move to England this summer, with Manchester United one side tipped to make a move.Suggestions of a move to United were amplified when fans’ favourite Odion Ighalo labelled his Nigerian compatriot as “the future of football” two months ago, but it seems as though they’ll have to wait if they are to sign the forward.Addressing rumours that a deal with Napoli is close, the player’s brother-in-law and agent, Osita Okolo, also shot down reports of a move to England.“I can say that, for now, Osimhen hasn’t agreed anything with Napoli or another club,” Okolo told Radio Marte.“I can also deny that he dreams of going to the Premier League, I don’t know why [the press] says certain things. “Naples is a fantastic city and Napoli are a very good team.“I’m always honoured whenever I hear these links, but for now there’s no deal in place, even if negotiations with them are ongoing.“He wants to play regularly.“We’re not going to repeat certain bad experiences from the past.“The Napoli fans are fantastic, their stadium is beautiful. “I can only speak well of Naples and its team.”Tags: Ligue 1LOSC LillePremier LeagueVictor Osimhenlast_img read more

Hodgson says England must do better

first_img But they had little to cheer about either as they were subjected to one of the most tedious England games in living memory. Hodgson struggled to find any positives from the stalemate in the Irish capital. “We set ourselves high standards and got nowhere near them in the first half,” the England manager said. “We were marginally better in the second half, but we were very critical of ourselves. “We’ve had a good run, a year almost unbeaten, but we came here believing if we played our best football we could win the game and we never got close to that. “We didn’t lose, but we have to accept there were a lot of things we could have done better.” England put up a spirited fight to draw in Italy in their last fixture, but there was a clear lack of spark from Hodgson’s team against the Irish. England mustered just three shots on target and Wayne Rooney stumbled when through on goal to waste the visitors’ best chance of the afternoon. Press Association England’s first trip to play the Republic of Ireland in 20 years passed off without incident in the stands. The England supporters heeded the Football Association’s warning to refrain from chanting inflammatory songs during the first match the Three Lions have played in Dublin since the Lansdowne Road riot of 1995. Hodgson concedes his men will have to perform better at next year’s European Championship in France. “It’s important we are critical and continue to set ourselves high standards,” said the England boss, who takes his team to Slovenia next Sunday for the final Euro 2016 qualifier of the season. “We want to go to France and play teams there, and we’ll have to play better than we did today.” The only crumb of comfort for Hodgson was that there was no repeat of the trouble that marred England’s last visit to Dublin two decades ago when the match had to be abandoned after away fans started throwing missiles on to the pitch. “The atmosphere in the stadium and the behaviour of the fans was a remarkable positive,” Hodgson said. Only a handful of supporters sang “No surrender” during the national anthem, and they were drowned out by their fellow supporters in an act of self-policing. The Football Association said no England fans were arrested in the ground. The subdued atmosphere inside the ground was understandable given the poor quality of football on show. Ireland had the better chances of the afternoon. Daryl Murphy spurned two good opportunities in the first half and Joe Hart saved a powerful volley from Jon Walters after the break. Martin O’Neill was happy with his Republic team’s showing ahead of Saturday’s crucial qualifier against Scotland. “It was exactly what we needed,” the Republic manager said. “In the last 15 minutes we looked pretty tired, but we started off brightly and maybe could have scored a couple of goals. We certainly had a couple of decent chances. “But overall it was good for us and from a physical viewpoint it couldn’t have been better timed.” The Republic will leapfrog Scotland in their qualifying group if they win at the Aviva Stadium next Saturday. Luckily for the former Aston Villa manager, it looks as though he will have a full squad to choose from. “Jon (Walters) was just feeling a little bit, but I think everybody’s okay,” O’Neill said. “John O’Shea’s calf was tightening up on him, so I made a change there. It’s something he’s suffered a little bit from in the past and I’m hoping in next couple of games he comes through that.” O’Neill confirmed Robbie Keane will land in Ireland on Monday. “He will join in with training on Tuesday,” O’Neill said of the Ireland captain, who was given permission to miss the England game so he could play in the Los Angeles Galaxy’s 1-0 defeat to the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night. Roy Hodgson hailed the conduct of England supporters in Dublin but could find few words of praise for his players after they stuttered to a dull 0-0 draw at the Aviva Stadium. last_img read more

Why the Esports BAR is heading to Miami

first_imgThe Esports BAR is back this September, only this time around it’s heading Stateside. Reed MIDEM has chosen Miami as the host city for the second coming of the networking focused event for esports organisations, game publishers, brands and media.The Cannes edition, which took place back in February and which you can read our write up of here, was a major success with a 96% satisfaction rate amongst attendees. Esports BAR Miami will follow up with the same format; a capped event with pre-selected attendees only, a major focus on pre-scheduled one to one meetings, and some knowledge sharing sessions to boot. Reed MIDEM’s Stephane Gambetta told Esports Insider: “Reed MIDEM aims to accompany the strategic development of this rapidly-evolving industry.  The purpose is to provide the most productive esports matchmaking experience possible, and better understand the needs of the sector.“We’re supported by an advisory team of leading esports professionals, which includes Matthieu Dallon, Esport Strategy Director, Webedia and President, France eSports ; Sidney Kim, CEO of Rox Tigers and ROX Orcas OverWatch Team ; Ralf Reichert, CEO of ESL ;  Mike Sepso, Senior VP Activision Blizzard ; Stuart Saw, Twitch’s Director of Esports Strategy ; Wouter Sleijffers, CEO of Fnatic and Arnd Benninghoff, EVP, MTG and CEO of MTGx Venture and Todd Sitrin, SVP & GM Competitive Gaming, EA. They’ll all be in Miami!”Whilst there are a number of esports business conferences now in existence, the Esports BAR is positioning itself as a move away from these. Gambetta explained: “Esports BAR is a ‘by invitation’ event: it’s selection process is what makes Esports BAR unique, as it allows us to bring together over 100 people who will benefit most from meeting each other.“Aside from the business insights sessions and a full programme of networking events, Esports BAR is centered around the 1-to-1 summit offering leading executives a full diary of guaranteed pre-scheduled meetings on site. What set the inaugural Esports BAR apart from other esports events was the high quality of professionals gathered in one place, dedicated to growing esports into the entertainment of the future.”So after everyone had such a great time in Cannes, why Miami? Gambetta stated: “The U.S. is definitely one of the leading regions in esports; it’s constantly generating growing revenues from online advertising, sponsorships, media rights, merchandise, tickets, and additional publisher investment.“Esports BAR heads to Miami to be closer to the main actors of the esports industry: designed as a global event bringing together executives from more than 20 countries active in the worldwide esports industry, the upcoming edition of Esports BAR is expected .to attract a particularly strong participation from the United States, Latin America and Canada.”Those interested in attending the Esports BAR Miami (September 18-20) can apply here.Disclaimer: Esports Insider is an official media partner of the Esports BARlast_img read more
