Lewandowski: I deserve to win the Ballon d’Or

first_img Loading… Read Also: Barcelona send law firm packing for advising Messi on exit strategyWhile he has no plans to retire any time soon, one of Lewandowski’s remaining objectives is to bring joy to Poland fans on the international stage.“One of my dreams has now come true and I feel huge satisfaction,” he added. “Another one is to make the fans of the national team proud of us. What exactly that means, I can’t answer myself. I can’t really describe it; I just want the fans to feel happy cheering us on.” “I was close many times, but something was missing, something was causing us to be knocked out early. Now that we’d won it, there was a childlike joy, something natural and spontaneous. I had no control over it.“The most beautiful moment after the game was when I called my wife. She sent me videos of my loved ones crying with happiness. It was something amazing. It’s what I will remember the most after many years.” The 32-year-old insists the Ballon d’Or was never on his mind this term, but he thinks he would have been a worthy winner.“I didn’t think about it at all. I knew we still had the Champions League, then the Bundesliga restarted after the short break,” he told Onet and Przeglad Sportowy when asked for his view on the award being cancelled.“I knew my priorities. My focus was on the Champions League, not on any possible individual awards. The decision to cancel the gala was made in the middle of the year and the Ballon d’Or was to be staged in December. The deadline was too distant to occupy my mind.”When asked which player he would have given the award to, he replied: “Myself. We won everything there was to win. I won the award for top goalscorer in every competition. I think a player who achieves this would win the Ballon d’Or.”Bayern’s 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain saw Lewandowski win the Champions League for the first time in his career, something he admitted had been a childhood dream.The Poland international was particularly emotional during post-match interviews but said the moment that truly touched him was when his wife sent him videos of family members reacting to the result.“Until now, I was hiding emotions behind a thick shell, but the Champions League is every footballer’s dream and I’ve believed all my life that I could fulfil it,” he said. Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski believes he would deserve the Ballon d’Or if the award had not been cancelled for 2020.France Football confirmed in July that the prize would not be awarded due to the disruption of the 2019-20 season caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Lewandowski would almost certainly have been one of the favourites for the men’s trophy this year, having scored 55 goals in all competitions to propel Bayern to a treble of Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Champions League titles for the second time.

Ramos Set to Dump Madrid if Mourinho Steps in

first_imgJose Mourinho’s return to Real Madrid will shatter an already splintered squad with several senior players saying privately they will leave in the summer if he arrives.Captain Sergio Ramos fought with Mourinho when he coached the club between 2010-2013 and has already taken on President Florentino Perez over plans to bring him back.Ramos will push for a move this summer when he will be one year from the end of his contract. Despite the fact that Mourinho courted Gareth Bale in 2017 when he was at Manchester United the Welshman is another believed not to welcome the managerial change.And two other veterans from Mourinho’s last spell in charge, Marcelo and Karim Benzema have also opposed the idea.However, Perez has told the players they will have no voice in the appointment.He is expected to meet with his club directors on Monday to take a final decision on putting Mourinho in charge of the team with immediate effect.The 56-year-old coach, and his staff, was paid £19.6m when he was sacked by Manchester United in December.His new Madrid contract would be a three-year deal worth £17m making him the second-highest paid coach in Spain behind Diego Simeone who earns £20m.As well as the animosity towards his appointment Mourinho would also be walking into an ugly battle between Spain captain Isco and Real Madrid.The club have opened a disciplinary procedure against the midfielder for refusing to attend a team meeting before the embarrassing Champions League defeat by Ajax last week and refusing to take the team bus to the stadium.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Jose Mourinholast_img read more

Dodgers will be juggling agendas down the stretch

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies BALTIMORE — The champagne has been sprayed. The beer flowed. A seventh consecutive National League West title was secured and celebrated.So – now what?The Dodgers have been confronted with this challenge before. How do you juggle agendas over the season’s final 2-1/2 weeks? Rest front-line players enough to be ready for the postseason – but not too much. Line up the starting rotation, make decisions on the bullpen and bench. And, oh yeah, secure home-field advantage if you can.“I think it’s finding a balance between winning games and making sure guys are in the best position going into October,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. “The good thing is our second line is also good. And that helps.” Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start The Dodgers went into Thursday night’s game three games up on the Atlanta Braves for the best record in the National League but trailing both the New York Yankees and Houston Astros for the best record overall.“Home-field (advantage) is huge,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “To try to obtain it at any cost, that’s a bigger discussion. But it’s at the forefront of all our minds to have home-field advantage, 100 percent.”How far will the Dodgers go to secure that for the postseason? “Just short of all-in,” Roberts said, backing away from an aggressively-phrased question.“I think it’s certainly very important considering how we’ve played at home,” he said, mindful of the Dodgers’ 56-20 record at home (second in the majors to the Astros’ 56-19 (going into their game Thursday). “But there’s still a cost in everything, and I think the main thing is keeping guys healthy, keeping guys sharp, and not trying to ‘red line’ just to win by any means necessary. If we play to our potential, that should take care of itself.”At the top of the agenda over the final 15 games, Roberts said, would be “structure and roles” in the bullpen.center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season The overall winner will be selected from the 30 team nominees by a panel including MLB commissioner Rob Manfred and a fan vote at www.mlb.com/clemente21. Jansen will be recognized before the Dodgers’ game next Wednesday.ALSOLeft-hander Scott Alexander underwent nerve decompression surgery on his left forearm to address an issue that was causing numbness in his hand. Alexander has not pitched since June 5. In 28 appearances for the Dodgers this season, he was 3-2 with a 3.63 ERA. He is expected to be fully recovered for spring training next year. …In order to activate Rich Hill from the 60-day Injured List on Thursday, the Dodgers designated right-hander Jaime Schultz for assignment, clearing a 40-man roster spot. Schultz spent most of the season in Triple-A but made four appearances with the Dodgers, allowing four runs and six hits in five innings.UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 13-5, 3.06 ERA) at Mets (RHP Noah Syndergaard, 10-7, 4.06 ERA), Friday, 4:10 p.m. SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AM. “I’d say that’s probably at the top – how we’re going to use guys,” he said. “Now that Julio (Urias) is back on line, Kenta (Maeda) is back on line. Their two roles will be more defined as far as like a regular bullpen guy, not necessarily a long guy. Strip (Ross Stripling) will make a start on Tuesday but after that will kind of fall into the regular bullpen stream. Seeing Dustin (May) potentially come into an inning, not a clean inning. Tony (Gonsolin) is coming out of the bullpen tonight, but going forward we’ll see him in more of a regular bullpen role.“Those are things we need to see.”Roberts said those being considered for a bullpen role will need to pitch on back-to-back days, come in mid-inning – things that will be required during the postseason.“Not pitching four innings and being down four days. Those kinds of things – which plays more into a playoff situation,” he said.TURNER SPRAINThird baseman Justin Turner underwent an MRI on his injured left ankle Thursday which confirmed the diagnosis of a mild ankle sprain, according to Roberts.Turner has been sidelined since leaving Saturday’s game for a pinch-runner in the eighth inning. Roberts said Turner’s return to the lineup would be “per his tolerance” of the pain in his ankle.“He still has discomfort. So I guess it’s just a case of being day-to-day,” Roberts said. “Today I would say he’s unavailable and we’ll revisit it tomorrow.“With a sprain, time heals it. What that timeline is is to be determined.”Turner won’t be in the starting lineup on Friday, but Roberts would not rule him out of the entire series against the Mets.CLEMENTE AWARDCloser Kenley Jansen was named the Dodgers’ nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award this season.The Clemente Award recognizes a player on each team who “best represents the game of baseball through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions both on and off the field.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
