“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. Mario de Luis De Luis had so impressed at Rayo Vallecano this term that he was close to being promoted to the senior team under Paco Jemez once football resumed after the COVID-19 pandemic. The player himself made his farewell to the club official on his social media pages on Tuesday afternoon. “Today is a difficult day for me,” he posted.Advertisement Loading… Read Also: La Liga: Barcelona suffer title blow in Atletico Madrid draw “There are many memories, emotions and the images of everything I’ve lived with this club, Rayo has made me grow in every way and has given me values that I will always hold.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
highlights New Delhi: Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal’s return to the court was shortlived as she crashed out in the second round of Thailand Open after being stunned by unseeded Sayaka Takahashi of Japan in the women’s singles event here on Thursday. Seventh seed Saina, who returned to action after nearly two months, squandered a game advantage to lose 21-16 11-21 14-21 against Takahashi in second round duel that lasted 48 minutes.In the absence of PV Sindhu, who withdrew in the last minute from the event, Saina’s ouster marks the end of India’s campaign in the women’s singles.Saina had earlier made last-minute withdrawals from Indonesia Open and last week’s Japan Open because of injuries.However, it was good news for India in the men’s doubles event as the pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty moved into the quarterfinals after registering a straight-game 21-17 21-19 win over Indonesian combination of Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto. The India duo will next play qualifiers Choi Solgyu and Seo Seung Jae of Korea on Friday.Meanwhile, PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal were static at fifth and eighth spots respectively in the recently released Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings. While both Sindhu and Saina held on to their places in the women’s singles rankings, Mugdha Agrey and Rituparna Das climbed up six and one spot, respectively, to be placed at 62nd and 65th positions. Among the men’s singles shuttlers, Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma managed to hold on to their 10th and 13th spots in the latest rankings issued on Tuesday. B Sai Praneeth, who lost to World No. 1 Kento Momota in last week’s Japan Open semifinals, moved up four places to the 20th position. HS Prannoy (31st), Parupalli Kashyap (35th), Shubhankar Dey (41st), Sourabh and Verma (44th) all moved up the in the men’s singles chart.Among other Indians in men’s singles chart, Ajay Jayram is placed 67th while Lakshay Sen is at 69th spot. The men’s doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty climbed up two places to 16th spot, while the combination of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy is static at 25. Another Indian duo — MR Arjun and Ramachandran Shlok — jumped seven spots to 48.(With Inputs: PTI) Saina Nehwal crashes out of Thailand Open.

The No. 4-ranked Wisconsin men’s cross country team will head to Terre Haute, Ind., today as they look to repeat the success they had last time in Indiana.Nine days removed from its Great Lakes Regional Championship, held in West Lafayette, Ind., UW is competing to bring home an NCAA championship to Madison. The Badgers will be led by seniors Matt Withrow, Stu Eagon and Christian Wagner, who are all participating in their fourth national championship race.Although Withrow and Eagon have been dealing with nagging injuries throughout the year, head coach Mick Byrne believes that they are closer to 100 percent than they have been all season.“Matt Withrow and Stu Eagon came through, are coming through pretty well,” Byrne said. “Matt survived Saturday, did pretty well. We slowed him down a little bit. Three-quarters of the way through the race, we told him to back off. And Stu did real well. So, with those two in much better shape than they were two or three weeks ago, it’s certainly going to help us.”Aiding the seniors in their attempt to bring home its second title is first team All-Big Ten runner Landon Peacock. Peacock, a sophomore, has put together a solid year, placing second at the Big Ten Championships and fourth in the Great Lakes Regional. Juniors Craig Miller and Ryan Gasper also figure to play big roles in the Badgers’ shot at the title.Other top-ranked teams — such as Oregon, Oklahoma State and Stanford — stand in the way of the Badgers winning the title.“There are obviously some big guns out there,” Byrne said. “Anytime you go to a national championship, there are a couple of favorites, and certainly Oklahoma State and Oregon are the big favorites. But behind all those guys, No. 3 and 4, we think that we’re in there with a shot.”Another factor that could play into the race is the weather. Coming from the colder Midwestern climate, the Badgers hope to have temperatures down in the 20s or 30s for today’s race. Wisconsin is used to running in colder temperatures, whereas the West Coast teams are not.“We’re looking for it to be pretty cool, and that’s the condition that our kids like,” Byrne said. “They feel comfortable running in anything around 30 degrees.”A championship would mean quite a bit not only for the seniors but also to Byrne, the Great Lakes Coach of the Year and first-year Badgers coach. After spending over two decades at Iona College, Byrne came to Wisconsin to replace former head coach Jerry Schumacher. There has been no drop off, as this year’s team won its 10th consecutive Big Ten title and seventh straight Great Lakes Regional title. Today, Byrne looks to keep one more streak alive as the Badgers look for their seventh straight top five at the NCAA Championships.“When we go to Terre Haute on Monday, the goal has been throughout the season to get back on the podium as one of the top four teams,” Byrne said. “It’s going to come down to who’s going to put it together on the date.”
“For a moment I couldn’t believe it. I thought they would try to block the vote but they would try to do it in a peaceful manner,” he added.“It wasn’t like that, but at least the whole world has seen it. This decision has made things a lot worse. It is one of the worst decisions made by this country in 40 or 50 years.“It has only served to separate Catalonia and Spain more and it will have consequences.”Pique’s political stance has seen him targeted by Spain fans when playing for the national team, despite his role in winning the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 with La Roja.The 30-year-old has already announced his decision to retire from international football after the 2018 World Cup.However, he said he will step aside before then if his presence in the Spain camp is deemed a problem by coach Julien Lopetegui or the federation.“I think I can continue going with the national team because I truly believe there are many people in Spain totally against the events that took place today in Catalonia and that believe in democracy,” said Pique.“If not, I will not go. If anyone in the federation thinks I am a problem I don’t have a problem in stepping aside and retiring from international football before 2018.”Share on: WhatsApp Barcelona played in an empty stadiumBarcelona, Spain | AFP | Gerard Pique broke down in tears describing Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Las Palmas in an empty stadium as the “worst professional experience” of his life on a chaotic Sunday in Catalonia.At least 92 people were injured as Spanish riot police fired rubber bullets and forced their way into activist-held polling stations over an independence referendum for the north-eastern region of Spain deemed illegal by the Spanish government.After Barcelona’s attempt to have their game abandoned was dismissed by Spanish league authorities, Barca decided to play behind closed doors in protest at the violent scenes.“The board tried to cancel the game but it wasn’t possible. They came down to speak to the players and we opted to play,” Pique told reporters.“It was very difficult to play the game. It was the worst professional experience I have had in my life.“We have had seven years of demonstrations without violence and what happened today has been seen around the world.”Pique has been an outspoken supporter of Catalonia’s right to self-determination in the face of the Spanish government’s crackdown on preparations for the referendum.He posted a picture on his Twitter account as he voted before the game on Sunday.And he believes the shocking scenes have only served to rupture fractious relations between Catalonia and Madrid even further.
“We don’t make the prices, the market does. Liverpool supporters should forget about the price.“We only talk about the player and what he can bring in; the quality, the mentality, the character. That is why we are really happy about it.”Van Dijk has struggled to reach peak form this season after missing several games due to injury and the fall-out from a rejected transfer request in August.But Liverpool had tried to land Van Dijk before the transfer deadline and Klopp is relieved to have finally got the centre-back, who will officially arrive on January 1 and could make his debut in the FA Cup third round tie against Merseyside rivals Everton.Calling for fans to allow time for Van Dijk to adapt to Liverpool, Klopp said: “Virgil hasn’t had the best first half to the season at Southampton.“He was out injured for a long time and we all know about the things that happened last summer.“He’s a tall player, they always need a little bit longer especially after being out for around nine months.“But that’s no problem. We already have quality here in that position so we don’t have to rush anything.“He needs to adapt to our style of play. It’s a completely different game, but we are 100 per cent sure he will do it.”Share on: WhatsApp Asked what the 26-year-old will add to Liverpool, Klopp told Sky Sports: “Quality. That’s why we got him, that’s why we were interested in him. It’s quite difficult at the moment because technically he’s still a Southampton player. London, United Kingdom | AFP | Jurgen Klopp insists it doesn’t matter that he paid a world record fee for a defender to sign Virgil van Dijk because the Dutch star is good enough to prove value for money.Klopp splashed out a reported £75 million ($100 million, 84 million euros) to bring Van Dijk to Anfield from Southampton on Wednesday.Opinion is divided over whether the Liverpool manager was right to pay such a huge sum for a player that Premier League leaders Manchester City wanted before they balked at the asking price.Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville claimed Netherlands international Van Dijk isn’t worth it, while ex Liverpool centre-back Jamie Carragher disagrees.But Klopp doesn’t care about the size of the transfer because he is confident Van Dijk will plug the holes in Liverpool’s leaky defence.
