Aubameyang Aubameyang has just over a year to run on his current contract. “I haven’t recently received a proposition but of course there have been discussions with the club,” he told Telefoot. “It’s them [the club] who have the keys and for them to do their work.

I have been very frank with everyone.Advertisement “It will be of course a very difficult decision to make. “It is possibly the most important decision of my career.

“I have to say goodbye to what has been my home for the past four seasons. Real Madrid have completed the signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Mario de Luis from Rayo Vallecano, and the Spaniard will join Los Blancos’ U19 team at the start of the 2020/21 season.

“First, he wants to get back into the Barclays Premier League, prove that he can keep scoring goals, help us and then it’s up to Mr Roy Hodgson. “But that’s the second step. The first one is to get back into business.” Defoe headed back to England having served just 11 months of his four-year MLS contract with homesickness and injuries having played their part in his decision. However, he managed 11 goals in 16 league appearances for Toronto, and while the Premier League may represent a sterner test of his enduring ability, he is delighted to be back. Defoe said: “I am delighted to be here and I’m looking forward to the challenge. It is a great club and I’ve always enjoyed coming up here and playing against Sunderland because of the stadium and the supporters. It is a great place to play and I’m really looking forward to it.” His arrival could hardly be more timely for Poyet, who both played with and coached the striker during their time together at Spurs. Sunderland have managed a paltry 18 goals in 21 league fixtures to date this season, a return which has left them flirting with yet another battle for top-flight survival. But having seen at close hand exactly what Defoe can do, Poyet is convinced he has found the missing piece of the jigsaw. Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has challenged striker Jermain Defoe to fire his way back into the England squad after his return home as part of an almost “perfect deal”. The 32-year-old Toronto frontman completed his swap move with Jozy Altidore on Friday afternoon and goes straight into the Black Cats’ squad for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to former club Tottenham with Poyet insisting international football should still be in his sights. He said: “I haven’t talked to him about that, but that’s a consequence. If he plays and he’s fit and he scores goals, I’m sure that any manager of the national team is going to try to get him. He said: “I have got no doubt. I don’t like excuses – I know every now and then, something comes out of me, because it’s natural, because there are plenty of things, unfortunately, that happen in football and they can sound like excuses. “Now I hope there are no more. That means that we have got as many players fit as possible, we can be organised but at the same time, we can score goals because we have got a proven goalscorer at the club, so there are no excuses. “I played with him, so I was on the pitch with him and the training ground every day, and he’s a player you want in your side because you know he is going to score goals and then if the rest of the team do their jobs, you have got a better chance of winning.” Defoe’s arrival signalled the end of a frustrating time on Wearside for 25-year-old United States skipper Altidore, who managed just three goals in 18 months and only one in the league following his £6.5million switch from AZ Alkmaar. The Black Cats, and in particular sporting director Lee Congerton, beat off stiff competition to land Defoe with a lucrative pay packet, and Poyet admitted it had worked out well for all involved. He said: “It’s nearly, with all respect to Jozy, the perfect deal. I’m a believer that those perfect deals don’t happen quite often in football. They are practically impossible, so we are in a great position. “Of course, the Jozy situation was simple: unfortunately, it didn’t work out for him for whatever reason. “He is going to go back home as a very, very important player and as the captain of the national team, and on the other hand, we are getting a proven Premier League goalscorer, so it was a good option for everybody.” Press Association
The combative flanker’s decision is a timely shot in the arm for Leinster, on the day when much-vaunted centre Ben Te’o agreed to join Worcester Warriors next summer. “Growing up as a young lad in Tullow it was always my ambition to play for Leinster and Ireland so you never take moments like this for granted,” O’Brien said. “I’m very grateful for the opportunity to sign with a club that I feel is going in the right direction under Leo (Cullen) and the rest of the coaching team. “I think we have a hugely talented group of players and coaches at provincial and national level and it is something that I want to be a part of.” O’Brien’s renewed loyalty to Leinster and the Irish system is the perfect tonic to increasing battles against the financial might of the English and French clubs. Leinster have been unable to retain former rugby league star Te’o, the highly-rated centre accepting a sizeable deal with Worcester on Tuesday. The New Zealand-born former South Sydney Rabbitohs star qualifies for England through his mother, and Leinster admitted he will now attempt to carve out a Test career with Eddie Jones’ national side. Connacht’s Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw could replace Te’o at Leinster next term, Press Association Sport understands. But the provinces and the IRFU continue to fight tooth and nail to compete with the financial clout of Europe’s moneyed elite. The IRFU will hope O’Brien’s new deal will help other out-of-contract stars to commit their future to home provinces, with Simon Zebo and Ian Madigan both rumoured to be eyeing moves abroad. “Sean is not only a proven world class player but he is a leader within the national set up and at Leinster,” said IRFU performance director David Nucifora. “The IRFU is delighted that Sean has committed to playing in Ireland until after the next World Cup.” Sean O’Brien has rejected lucrative opportunities in France for the second time in his career to commit his long-term future to home province Leinster. The 28-year-old is understood to have spurned the advances of a host of Top 14 clubs to complete a new three-year deal with Leinster and the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU). O’Brien turned down European aristocrats Toulon to stay at Leinster two years ago, and this new deal ensures he remains on home soil until after the 2019 World Cup in Japan. Press Association
Facebook Twitter Google+ Outside the Syracuse locker room Saturday, a sense of excitement encircled members of the SU football team. Bro hugs were issued. Smiles were flashed. Syracuse was off to its best start since 2003. And that’s a legitimate reason to be excited, and even confident. At times this season, SU has played very well. The 3-1 start is not a fluke. The record symbolizes something big. Something fans and players haven’t seen at SU in quite some time. But does the record really tell us anything about this squad? The Orange was supposed to play well against Akron, Maine and Colgate. Nobody is surprised the Orange easily handled three middling teams from outside a BCS conference. That’s not a shocker. Despite three wins by an average margin of more than 28 points per game, the Orange didn’t necessarily dominate each of those three opponents for four consecutive quarters. Against the one BCS conference team it did play, SU got walloped. Because of that, we still know very little about this team’s chances once SU’s Big East slate begins against South Florida in Tampa, following the current bye week. Will this team collect double-digit penalties against Big East teams, as it did against Maine? Will this defense allow its conference opponents to gouge them for 230 yards on the ground, as Colgate did? If three relative cupcakes can exploit the Orange at times, what will happen in conference? Four weeks into the season, these are the questions that can still legitimately be asked.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Doug Marrone acknowledged as much Saturday. He’ll be the first to tell you he’s not content with where his team is, despite its record. ‘We just have to get better technically,’ Marrone said. ‘More sound, making tackles, not missing tackles, finishing blocks on the offensive line. We’re looking at it more from a fundamental standpoint. Do we have the scheme to play well the rest of the year? Absolutely. … (But) from a technical standpoint, we need to get better.’ This isn’t something that’s oblivious to the Syracuse players. Four games in, SU’s players haven’t once professed to have played a perfect game. They haven’t once said they’re completely content with where they are as a team. Sure, SU has taken care of the three inferior teams on its schedule. At times, the Orange looked really impressive, too. But it doesn’t say whether or not the Orange can compete with the big boys in the Big East. As linebacker Marquis Spruill said Saturday, ‘South Florida isn’t Colgate.’ And because of that, we really don’t know whether or not this team is legit. After watching Syracuse struggle during the first half against Maine and allowing the Colgate offense to consistently move the ball Saturday, it’s difficult to know what to think. Though Syracuse should be positive heading into Big East play following its bye week, there are still too many question marks about this team to be overly optimistic. It’s tough to take the Akron game seriously, despite the fact that it was arguably SU’s most complete performance of the season because of how Akron has struggled since. Beating the Zips 29-3 doesn’t look so impressive all of sudden now that Akron has fallen to 0-4, including a 38-37 overtime loss to Gardner Webb of the FCS. ‘They have a tough task ahead of themselves, seeing a little bit of different schemes than they saw during the week,’ Marrone said of his players and staff. ‘If we don’t continue to get better, then we’re going to struggle. If we continue to get better, we’ll be fine.’ Heading into the bye week, Marrone’s statement really sums up the state of this team. If Syracuse does not improve, it will struggle against tougher, faster, more skilled opponents. The last time SU started 3-1, it lost its next game, 51-7, to Virginia Tech, before finishing the season just 6-6. If the Orange wants to see a different fate, it must take these next two weeks and improve. Unfortunately, because of the quality of opponents SU has beaten, we won’t know exactly how good this team is, or can be, until its trip to Tampa. Which makes this upcoming matchup with USF all the more intriguing. It should be our first real glimpse into whether or not all the optimism after a 3-1 start is warranted. Andrew L.

SAN DIEGO >> Sometimes it never hurts to try. Justin Upton hit a baseball 406 feet in the eighth inning against Zack Greinke on Saturday night. A fan in the bleachers in left-center field at Petco Park, perhaps 10 feet beyond the outfield fence, reached toward the Padres bullpen to make a fine catch. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly challenged the call on the field, asking the umpires to review whether the fan had interfered with a hit that was not actually a home run. The call was upheld in less time than it takes to read this paragraph. The Dodgers lost to the Padres 2-1 on the strength of Upton’s home run. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The veteran right-hander has a 2.28 ERA in 47 1/3 innings over his last seven starts. Somehow, none if it has resulted in a win. Greinke was 5-0 on May 7. Now he’s 5-2.“The first six years of my career were worse than that,” he said, referring to his time with the Kansas City Royals. “You just do what you can do.” Upton entered the game with a .345 batting average against Greinke in his career. The home run was his only hit in four at-bats against Greinke on Saturday. On a 3-1 count, Greinke threw Upton a hanging slider over the middle of the plate — the one place Greinke did not want to spot the pitch.“That’s his specialty,” Greinke said. “When I make a mistake he does a lot of damage.”Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said he and Greinke considered pitching around Upton to get to the on-deck hitter, Matt Kemp. The former Dodgers outfielder is batting .246 this season.They attacked Upton because Greinke “had been so good all day,” Grandal said. “His slider’s been so good all day that you’ve got to live and die with it.”The Dodgers volunteered to live and die with Greinke when he signed a six-year, $147 million contract as a free agent prior to the 2013 season. He has rewarded the club with a 37-14 record since then, but can opt out of the contract at the end of this season.What’s alarming is how little the Dodgers have rewarded Greinke during his current winless streak.“He gave us a great chance to win,” Mattingly said. “We just weren’t able to put anything on the board for him.”Grandal crushed a solo home run to right field in the third inning against right-hander Ian Kennedy to tie the score at 1-1. The Dodgers had five hits as a team, but Grandal’s was the only extra-base hit.The Padres scored on a 45-foot ground ball by Kemp in the first inning. Will Venable, the runner on third base, charged home on contact with two outs. Greinke fielded the ball halfway up the third-base line and probably could have tossed the ball to Grandal for an out at the plate. Instead he tried to retire Kemp.“I thought the play at first would be easier, but I didn’t really get my feet set up good and I made a bad throw,” Greinke said. “I should’ve made the play, but I didn’t do it properly.”Greinke’s throw eluded Adrian Gonzalez up the first-base line and Kemp was safe. An error was charged to Greinke, who won a Gold Glove award last season. It was his second error in the last six years.By virtue of the San Francisco Giants’ loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers (36-26) maintained their 2 1/2-game lead in the National League West. The way Greinke had been pitching, it was worth another look. Before Upton’s home run, the right-hander had retired 18 of the Padres’ previous 21 hitters. Only one batter had reached third base during that time, and Greinke quashed that threat by getting Yangervis Solarte to chase a 2-1 fastball, flying out weakly to end the seventh inning.Nobody was throwing in the Dodgers’ bullpen when Upton crushed Greinke’s 99th pitch of the evening over the outfield fence. More than a last resort, Mattingly’s challenge was a double-take to make sure what he’d seen actually happened.“I didn’t realize there was another fence there,” Mattingly said. “It looked like it was close.”Greinke (5-2) pitched all eight innings in defeat, allowing eight hits and one walk and striking out one batter.
The Brewers are worried about Corey Knebel’s elbow.That is known for two reasons: for one, manager Craig Counsell told reporters “there is reason for concern,” and second, Milwaukee has “serious interest” in free agent reliever Craig Kimbrel, according to Fancred Sports. Corey Knebel will have his elbow examined by Dr. William Raasch today in Arizona.“There is reason for concern,” manager Craig Counsell said.— Robert Murray (@ByRobertMurray) March 21, 2019Brewers talks with Craig Kimbrel are pretty serious I hear. They already had the best pen last year, so this would be strengthening a strength @ken_rand @ByRobertMurray 1st mentioned— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) March 20, 2019Knebel has not pitched since March 17 and will have his elbow examined by Dr. William Raasch in Arizona on Thursday. The Brewers’ interest in Kimbrel has become apparent in recent days, but it didn’t make a ton of sense considering Milwaukee ranked in the top five in almost every category that mattered last year in bullpen numbers.But if Knebel is out for an extended period of time, Kimbrel would not only provide a great replacement this year, but he would also be good for a couple or three years down the road if Knebel doesn’t recover quickly or even sufficiently. MLB hot stove: Brewers seriously interested in Craig Kimbrel, report says Kimbrel remains available on the open market despite ranking 14th all time with 333 career saves. The righty reportedly was asking for a six-year, $100 million deal this offseason, but that has not been confirmed. Related News
