Sterling assured over Liverpool role

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Raheem Sterling is very much part of his first-team plans for the rest of the season.The 19-year-old from Harlesden struggled to hold down a place in the Reds side before being handed a starting spot by Rodgers for the last three matches.Sterling missed good chances to score during Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing of West Ham at Anfield.But Rodgers told Liverpool’s website: “He’s a terrific young player to have. He will always be important for us this season.“He didn’t play so much in the opening months, but you can see that he’s a real threat when he’s at the top of his game.“He’ll be disappointed, he should have scored – he had a couple of very good chances. But confidence is returning for him.“He’s making some great runs beyond, it’s just if he can get that bit of composure. He slipped a couple of times when he was in good positions.”See also:Sterling should commit his future to Liverpool, says mentorLiverpool star ‘can beat any player in this league’ says defender ToureYTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Man Utd fans on Twitter react to QPR’s interest in Goss

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesManchester United fans on Twitter have been reacting largely with dismay to news that QPR want to sign Sean Goss on a permanent deal.West London Sport revealed on Tuesday that Rangers are interested in the 21-year-old, who has been described as having attributes similar to Michael Carrick.And after standing out in recent Under-23s games, a number of United supporters are not keen for the club to let him go…Goss is 21, but he can do sooo much better than QPR. Convinced that he would’ve made his debut had he not picked up that damn injury— Nicole ΑΩ (@NickiDupre) January 17, 2017Selling Sean Goss w/out giving him a chance would be very disappointingReady made replacement for CarrickJust needs 1st team chance #mufc— Michael (@mrmickeybee1966) January 17, 2017Sean Goss can make it to the first team. He’s real quality. Carrick-esque. Will only improve with time 👍#MUFC #Academy— Kunal Srivastava (@Kunal_sri92) January 17, 2017If @SeanGoss and his magic left wand signs anything other than a loan deal im going to cry— Ryan Jackson (@RyanJacko21) January 18, 2017Goss appears ever popular with #MUFC fan and as recent as last night has been making his mark on U23 gamesHope it’s a loan move #MUFC— RedReveal (@RedReveal) January 17, 2017Would be disappointed to see Sean Goss leave #mufc on a permanent deal but can understand why he would. Good enough for senior football now.— Tom Simpson (@TomMUFC8) January 17, 2017QPR fans, meanwhile, have been more preoccupied with the club’s search for a striker.Rangers have had offers of £1.2m and £1.5m for Rotherham’s Danny Ward rejected – and some supporters want to see their interest end there, rather than go in with a further bid of £2m-plus.If #QPR bid more than £2m for Ward it’s a joke that money could be invested in Matty Taylor who is a hotter prospect!— Dale H (@DaleH_21) January 18, 2017Not sure Danny Ward’s goal scoring record justifies a fee of £2m+.— Jack (@JackM_QPR) January 18, 2017If we’re bidding over £2m for Danny Ward, I might just call it a day. Like him, Rate him & would take him, But not at that price #QPR #QPRFC— Ash (@_Ash_94_) January 18, 2017Can we bin off going for this danny ward now and go for someone thats been scoring goals consistently the past few years— Mark Dudfield (@duddaz87) January 18, 2017See also:QPR have offer for Man Utd midfielder acceptedQPR set to confirm signing of Man Utd midfielder   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Afghanistan vows to crush Islamic State havens after attack

first_imgKabul: Afghanistan’s president on Monday vowed to “eliminate” all safe havens of the Islamic State group as the country marked a subdued 100th Independence Day after a horrific wedding attack claimed by the local IS affiliate. President Ashraf Ghani’s comments came as Afghanistan mourns at least 63 people, including children, killed in the Kabul bombing at a wedding hall late Saturday night. Close to 200 others were wounded. Many outraged Afghans ask whether an approaching deal between the United States and the Taliban to end nearly 18 years of fighting America’s longest war will bring peace to long-suffering civilians. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US The bomber detonated his explosives in the middle of a dancing crowd, and the IS affiliate later said he had targeted a gathering of minority Shiites, whom it views as apostates deserving of death. Both the bride and groom survived, and in an emotional interview with local broadcaster TOLOnews the distraught groom, Mirwais Alani, said their lives were devastated within seconds. A sharply worded Taliban statement questioned why the US failed to identify the attackers in advance. Another Taliban statement marking the independence day said to “leave Afghanistan to the Afghans.” Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls More than anything in its nearly year-long negotiations with the US, the Taliban want some 20,000 US and allied forces to withdraw from the country. The US envoy in talks with the Taliban, Zalmay Khalilzad, on Sunday said the peace process should be accelerated to help Afghanistan defeat the IS affiliate. But Ghani on Monday asserted that the Taliban, whom the US now hopes will help to curb the IS affiliate’s rise, are just as much to blame. His government is openly frustrated at being sidelined from the US talks with the insurgent group, which regards the Afghan government as a US puppet. The Taliban “have created the platform for terrorists” with its own brutal assaults on schools, mosques and other public places over the years, the president said. More than 32,000 civilians in Afghanistan have been killed in the past decade, the United Nations said earlier this year. More children were killed last year 927 than in any other over the past decade by all actors, the UN said, including in operations against insurgent hideouts carried out international forces. “We will take revenge for every civilian drop of blood,” Ghani declared. “Our struggle will continue against (IS), we will take revenge and will root them out.” He urged the international community to join those efforts. He asserted that safe havens for militants are across the border in Pakistan, whose intelligence service has long been accused of supporting the Taliban. The IS affiliate’s claim of the wedding attack said it was carried out by a Pakistani fighter seeking martyrdom. Ghani called on people in Pakistan “who very much want peace” to help identify the IS safe havens there. Last month after meeting with President Donald Trump, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan insisted he will do his best to persuade the Taliban to open negotiations with the Afghan government to resolve the war. Trump on Sunday told reporters he doesn’t want Afghanistan to be a “laboratory for terror.” He was briefed on Friday on the progress of the US-Taliban talks, of which few details have emerged. In a message marking Afghanistan’s independence and “century of resilience,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the weekend wedding bombing “an attack against humanity.” It was one of many international expressions of condemnation pouring in following the attack.last_img read more
