How Youri Tielemans became a key figure in Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City revolution


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

“He can come here and develop and flourish more as a player. He then may have other choices again later on but from a football and family perspective, this was the best option for him.”

United were indeed an option for Tielemans in the summer, but it was all dependent on whether Paul Pogba was sold to Real Madrid. Tielemans was not prepared to wait, and informed both Monaco and his representative that a permanent move to Leicester was the preferred next step in his career. 

Jon Rudkin, the club’s director of football, was worn down by weeks of bartering with Monaco but agreed a deal shortly before Leicester flew to France for a pre-season training camp.

Tielemans is now fully settled in north Leicestershire with long-term partner Mendy – they met in their early teens while Tielemans was at Anderlecht – and last month they welcomed a new addition to the family: daughter LeSteven Gerrard has spoken of his trial with Manchester United as a junior.Gerrard, now Rangers manager, admits he played alongside United Treble hero Wes Brown.“It was strange, really, because I had a lot of letters come in at the time to go and trana, who is the baby sister of Melina.

“For Youri, football and family is key for him,” said Rodgers. “I think he wanted to come to a club not just for his football, but for the family. Bringing a young wife here, this is a club which is absolutely the perfect fit for him because it’s a really good family club, a community club.

“He came back a little bit later in pre-season and wasn’t quite up to speed, but now he’s up to that level with his fitness. He’s got a wonderful view of the game for a 22-year-old, compared to lots of 22-year-olds I’ve worked with. He’s got a real football brain, he understands the game absolutely 100 per cent. He’s been given a great education in football and he takes that onto the field.”

Tielemans is already in Leicesonathan Biabiany has declared Frank de Boer the “worst” Inter Milan coach in the club’s history.De Boer, now in charge of Atlverpool and their Champions League win.Jesus is getting ready to face the Reds in the Club World Cup after his side won the Copa Libertadores in South America.Flamengo claimed the crown after defeating River Plate, thanks to two goals from Gabriel Baanta United, lasted just months with the Nerazzurri.Biabiany, now with Trapani, told ITA Sport Press: “For me, he was the wter’s ‘leadership group’ – which consists of Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan, Jonny Evans and Ben Chilwell – and when you speak to people about his career the one striking aspect for many is his maturity.

He only turned 22 in May but it feels like he has been around for years, one of Belgium’s most hyped young talents. Captain for all of Anderlecht’s teams at junior level, he made his senior team debut as a 16-year-old and was the Belgian player of the year in 2017. The move to Monaco later that year never really worked out, mainly due to a fractious relationship with manager Leonardo Jardim, but joining Leicester has sparked his career back into life.

With an eye for goal and a wonderful wide range of passing, he is one of the catalysts for the press which Rodgers feels is so crucial to his high-intensity style of play.

Only Liverpool’s Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have made more passes into the final third than Tielemans this season, while he has provided more assists than any other Leicester player since February.

Leicester appear genuine contenders to secure a top-four finish, and last week booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup and signing Tielemans was a huge statement for Rodgers.

“I think he gets recognition but he’s not overly bothered by it,” said the Leicester manager. “That’s not why he plays the game. He plays the game to win and be the best he can be. He really is a fantastic player.”

Top 10 reasons to get psyched for Buffalo's Wild Card game


10. It’s the playoffs!

Playoffs, people. I’m talking about the NFL playoffs! It’s been a long time coming but, after 17 seasons, the Buffalo Bills are finally back in the dance and we couldn’t be more excited. Taking on AFC South opponent in the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bills will give it their all to stay alive in the postseason.

The Bills boys will be sporting a white on blue uniform combination as they take the field during Wild Card weekend. Get a glimpse of the fresh look:

Okay, so by now you’ve probably figured out that Bills fans are pretty awesome. As loyal as they come, Buffalo’s diehards will travel thousands of miles to support their favorite team. This week will be no different down in Jacksonville. In fact, Bills fans have been spotted in droves at several airports, decked out in Bills gear and chanting a collective ‘Let’s go Buffalo!’ Get ready Jags. We’re taking over.

When the Bills arrive in Jacksonville, it’ll mark the second consecutive trip to the Sunshine State for the team in two weeks. Similar to their last matchup with the Dolphins, the Bills will be up against several familiar faces. Chief among them are Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who each spent the 2013-14 seasons in Buffalo. Jags defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and linebacker Paul Posluzny both got their starts with the Bills, while current Bills defensive end Ryan Davis spent time with the Jags.

ed a move to Atletico Madrid, it has been revealed.El Larguero says the Uruguay international has given his approval to the move after falling out with PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.For the moment, any move will depend on Atletico selling Diego Costa.While

Looking to party like it’s 1999? And no, I don’t mean by blasting the sounds of NSYNC and Britney Spears (although, I can’t say I’d blame you if you did). I mean with a group of passionate Bills fans gearing up for Sunday’s big game! For fans who will be in the area, the will be hosting a party Saturday, Jan. 6. Round up your herd and head on down! For more information on Bills Backers Chapters near you, .

Bills head coach Sean McDermott has made quite asuspended this summer.The Italian – who boasts Manchester United star Paul Pogba and Ajax captain Matthijs De Ligt among his clients – was last month slapped with a ban from dealing with transfers anywhere in the world.Raiola had previously been handn impression around the League. In last week’s huge win over Miami, McDermott hit a milestone, becoming just one of four head coaches in Bills franchise history to record nine wins in his first season. While his focus remains on preparing his players for the mission ahead, McDermott will have another chance to make history this weekend. With a victory, he will become the only head coach in Bills history to win a postseason game in his first year on the job. Not too shabby, coach.

With snow and grey skies descending upon the entire East Coast this winter, it’s made things interesting – especially in the South. The forecast in Jax is calling for clouds and chilly temperatures on game day, but could the Jags be in for more shade than expected? He’s listed as questionable for the game, but Bills top ball carrier LeSean McCoy would like nothing more than to suit up and help his team. Here’s to hoping for a Shady Sunday.

The accolades continue to roll in for Buffalo’s secondary, as the unit has made it tough or near impossible at times for their opponents to score through the air. Giving up just 14 passing touchdowns all season, the group has proven they can lock it down for the Bills ‘D.’ Safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer finished the regular season with five picks each and rookie Tre White has forced five turnovers in the fourth quarter. It could be a long day for Jags QB Blake Bortles if these three get their hands on the ball.

Kyle Williams has been holding it down for the Bills defense since ’06. Buffalo’s longest tenured player, Williams is a respected voice in the locker room and a leader on the field. Making his first career playoff appearance on Sunday, the five-time Pro Bowler will do what he does best – whatever it takes to lead his team to victory.

An entire year of hard work, preparation and perseverance has come down to this moment.

How Liverpool became the Premier League’s set-piece kings

Klopp said he had never worked so specifically on set-plays before, but in England they are such a major weapon he had to adapt.

“Maybe it is good, sometimes not that good. Against Paris St-Germain, we did not score from a set-piece but in the first 10 minutes we lived in their six-yard box with this directness and it is difficult to defend against,” he said.

“Also, it created the intensity of the game. We had three or four corners and did not score, but the crowd was up.”

The problem, Klopp says, is knowing how long to dedicate to it.

“It is really difficult to find the time. In a week like this – Saturday Huddersfield, Sunday recovery, Monday second-day recovery with a little bit of tactics, Tuesday is then the last session already and younager Jurgen Klopp has no transfer concerns as he continues preseason preparations.The Reds are set to defend their Champions League title, while they hope to break their Premier League hodoo next term as well.They have not made any significant moves have to look at set-pieces and some tactical stuff. In a normal week, we have time for it, but we don’t have a lot of normal weeks.

“It’s a different approach, I would say, we have different runs, never the same routine, always different. We put more focus on it. We did a lot and it’s good to see that it’s worked out somehow.”

Another beneficiary of training-ground drills is Xherdan Shaqiri, who Klopp believes can become a major Anfield star.

“I don’t think anybody has an idea how good Shaq can be,” said Klopp. “I knew him when he was 19 at Bayern and he was already an outstanding talent. He had a good first year, second year he wasn’t that good – but that can happen. Then he left. You can disappear a bit. Inter Milan and then Stoke.

“Thankfully, he didn’t disappear. He always had his moments. When I asked for us to cut a few scenes of Shaqiri, it was really impressive with how decisive he was. Signing him was a logical thing to d to form.The Frenchman has struggled in recent weeks after initially thriving under Solskjaer’s leadership.Speaking ahead of Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield, Solskjaer said: “Anthony [Martial] has got loads of goals in him.”It’s up to us now to move o. He’s still not the finished article. He still has a lot of space for improvement. He gives us something different. So far, we haven’t really used his set- pieces but they are outstanding.”

Klopp, meanwhile, has revealed how player power secured Virgil van Dijk the captaincedia platform Facebook, reports SportBusiness.Madridista Nation is designed to be an exclusive Facebook community for the club’s fans, offering photos, videos, exclusive content and special stickers. Real Madrid has priced membership at €2.49 ($2.7y in midweek. With Jordan Henderson injured and James Milner on the bench, Klopp held a ballot to decide who should lead the team against Red Star Belgrade.

“It was not my decision. That was the players’ decision,” said Klopp. “I decided ‘Hendo’ and ‘Milly’ would stay [captain and vice-captain]. Then I said for the next two, the players can vote. Virgil is still young. He looks more of a man than he really is.”

Pat Tillman and Rob Moore: A friendship worth fighting for


It was a friendship that started with a bang. Literally.

Pat Tillman was a rookie linebacker on the Arizona Cardinals in 1998, and current Bills wide receivers coach Rob Moore was an 8-year veteran receiver.

Tillman had already earned a reputation for hurting players during practice when the two were put on opposite sides of the ball during a 7-on-7, non-contact drill.

“Pat hit me and took me to the ground,” said Moore, who didn’t get it, and didn’t like it. “So naturally, he and I got into a slight scuffle.”

But before he let hot-headedness cement his views on the rookie, Moore got a recommendation that would turn that hit into something much more meaningful.

“One of the coaches said, ‘Look, instead of fighting the kid, why don’t you pull Pat aside and try to teach him to be a pro.’ So I kind of took him under my wing.”

From then on, Moore was assigned to Tillman. The two sat next to each other on every team plane ride, where Moore would quickly come to know Tillman’s strength of character and “scary intelligence.”

“The conversations we would have were unbelievable,” said Moore. “We would talk about everything from where healthcare was going to who we were voting for to be president and why, to what it’s like to be a father. We had a friendship, and it went beyond the white lines ofnders for the UK and Ireland after failing to receive adequate bids, leaving the rights-holder without broadcast partnerships in the two territories heading into the new season, reports SportBusiness.A LaLiga spokesperson told SportBusiness Media on football.”

He said Tillman would quote Ralph Waldo Emerson and other notable writers on a whim in mid-conversation, and recite the book he read from and the page number too.

Their friendship became one of substance, not just of hard-hits and gridiron aggression. They learned from each other on those plane rides, diving deep past the surface, and surely past what their counterparts two seats over were discussing.

“I remember distinctly, one of the conversations we had was how disappointed he was in himself because his exact words were, ‘I haven’t done a damn thing. My grandfather fought in a war and his dad fought in a war and I’m just a football player. I haven’t done anything and that doesn’t sit well with me.’ We had that conversation.”

So when Moore found out that Tillman had enlisted in the Army and would be deployed to Iraq, it didn’t surprise him one bit.

Tillman only knew one way, Moore said, and that way was going through life with unbridled conviction. The hits during practice, his philosophies on life, leaving a prosperous NFL career behind to enlist in the Army  – everything fell in line with that all-or-nothing mentality.

“Sixty miles per hour? Try 120,” said Moore. “Pat only knew one way. But you learned to love him because of that. And on gameday you didn’t want to play with anybody else because he always had your back.”

Tillman knew when he enlisted that he would soon be overseas in harm’s way, but similar to the way he had the backs of his teammates, he was ready to fight to defend the United States of America. He was “doing something that mattered,” and that fulfilled his life’s purpose more than what he did every Sunday on the football field.

Tillman was killed in action ten years ago in a friendly fire accident in the mountains of Afghanistan at the age of 27. Though the end of a life as young and rich as his never makes perfect sense, Moore has come to appreciate the symbolism of a life liv Neville jokes that watching a Man City vs. Liverpool title race is “worse than a funeral.”The Red Devils legend has to watch as two of his side’s bitterest rivals go head to head for another Premier League title.Liverpool are in the driving seat, ased so passionately lost in sacrifice for itruck in the 4-2 victory.Fonseca said, “I spoke to Edin Dzeko a great deal during pre-season. He is a very important player. He scored a goal today, could’ve had more, but he is an excellent forward.“We changed a few things this evening. Pellegrits country.

“They say that certain people will leave this earth a certain way. I think that the way he left was who Pat Tillman was,” he said. “He’s a guy who was going to fight for the cause. He was fighting for something he truly believed in. He was trying to satisfy an urge in himself, something that hadn’t sat well with him. He wanted to give back and I think he went out in the way in which he wanted to, fighting for his country.”

Moore has photos of his friend hanging in his house in Arizona where he says he can still feel his presence.

“We talk about having the spirit of charity and giving and those things – I think at the end of the day he sacrificed his life, and I don’t know what more you would give.”
