Wayne Rooney denies handing in transfer request at Manchester United in 2013

first_img Press Association Wayne Rooney insists he did not submit a transfer request shortly before Sir Alex Ferguson retired in May 2013. But, in the BBC documentary Wayne Rooney – The Man Behind The Goals, England’s record goalscorer denies formally asking to leave. “I went in to see him and just said, ‘If you are not going to play me, it might be better for me to move on’,” Rooney reveals. “Then, all of a sudden, it was all over the press that I had put a transfer request in, which I never did. “I don’t know what happened and why that came out that way.” While Rooney admits he did not always see eye to eye with Ferguson, he hails the Scot as “the best manager of all time” and says he was the reason behind his move from Everton to Manchester United in 2004. The 29-year-old opens up about the 2006 World Cup in the film, conceding that he was not fit enough after fracturing a metatarsal bone in his right foot six weeks before the tournament. “Before the World Cup in Germany I broke my foot at Chelsea,” Rooney says. “You could feel the excitement building around the World Cup and it was touch and go as to whether I would be fit. And then Sven (-Goran Eriksson) put me in the squad. Rooney had already previously asked to leave Manchester United – in October 2010 before agreeing a new deal – when Ferguson claimed the striker had made it clear he wanted a transfer a second time. He was left out of Ferguson’s final game in charge at Old Trafford and an exit looked likely with Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich reportedly waiting in the wings. “Looking back, if I could have gone back in time, then I probably would have sat out the World Cup. It was a big ask to get fit after six weeks out; I was never going to have that match sharpness.” Rooney was sent off during the quarter-final against Portugal after stamping on Ricardo Carvalho in an incident which featured then-Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo, who pleaded with the referee to show Rooney a red card, insists the pair continued to be friends in the aftermath and even hints at a reunion in the future. “We won every trophy together,” the Real Madrid forward says in the film. “He’s a fantastic boy and he helped me a lot. “It was amazing to play with him. But the future, nobody knows, maybe we will play one day together again.” Also in the documentary, Rooney concedes he was “stupid” for shouting down a TV camera after England were booed off following a goalless draw against Algeria in the 2010 World Cup, while revealing he wooed Coleen with poetry in the early days of their relationship. last_img read more

Syracuse’s ride and defense forces turnovers in 21-4 win over Colgate

first_imgMary Rahal jumped into the passing lane. Colgate was trying to advance in transition, but Rahal thrust her stick out to cause the turnover.She planted, turned and carried the ball from SU’s 20-yard line into the attacking zone. Twenty-five yards from the net, she dished to freshman Bianca Chevarie who took a step before passing to Meaghan Tyrrell at the right block. In one motion, Tyrrell turned to her right and passed the ball across the crease to Megan Carney, who promptly deposited it for her second of the game.Throughout the game, promising Raider attacks turned into Syracuse goals within seconds. The No. 4 Orange (5-1) caused turnovers at will in their 21-4 win over Colgate (2-1). SU’s 16 caused turnovers were the most in a game since Feb. 12 of last season, when the Orange forced 20 in a win over Binghamton.“A couple times we had great opportunities to score and we didn’t recover and they scored,” Colgate head coach Kathy Taylor said, “So it almost feels like a 2-goal swing.”From the outset, the Orange seemed poised to impose their will. Senior Emily Hawryschuk controlled the opening draw and scored 17 seconds later. But, Colgate answered with a draw control of their own and a goal 30 seconds later. Senior defender Kerry Defliese referred to the goal as a “wake-up call.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFollowing two Syracuse fouls, midfielder Sam Swart caused SU’s first turnover of the game. The junior gathered the ground ball and carried past midfield before passing to Hawryschuk. Her shot was stopped, but Chevarie scooped up another ground ball and set up SU’s second goal of the game.Three minutes later, senior Lila Nazarian gave chase to a Colgate midfielder carrying toward the Syracuse net. While her efforts didn’t show on the stat sheet, she forced Colgate’s Olivia Duarte to drop the ball multiple times before eventually turning it over to SU’s Allyson Trice.On the Raiders’ ensuing offensive possession, Defliese lunged in front of a Colgate pass from X out to the right side. Defliese hustled for the ground ball and pushed it upfield to Swart for the clear.“I think that’s our defense wanting to have that mentality we come into every game with,” Defliese said, “Starting with that fire in the beginning led our defense to many caused turnovers.”Swart’s progress was then halted, and she subsequently lost possession. But, Hawryschuk rode Colgate’s Grace Bowers for 15 yards before dislodging the ball from her stick — and the stick from her hands. Hawryschuk took the ball back toward the Colgate net, finding Chevarie for the freshman’s second goal of the season.Syracuse controlled the ensuing draw but lost possession on the attack. The Raiders tried to clear but failed again. This time, Chevarie turned Colgate over on the ride, and two passes later it was 4-1 Syracuse with 22:02 minutes to play in the half. Taylor was forced to call a timeout.“My team went back to carrying the ball which really played into Syracuse’s ability to strip the ball from my players,” Taylor said, “and we need to really embrace moving that ball and not running with it.”Even after the timeout, Taylor could tell that Syracuse was “wearing (Colgate) down.” The Orange had 11 caused turnovers to Colgate’s two in the first half. Syracuse was first to 13 of 19 ground balls in the half as well.“Every time you put effort in there’s an opportunity to turn the ball over,” head coach Gary Gait said.Less than three minutes into the second half, Asa Goldstock, Hawryschuk and a number of other Syracuse starters left the field. Even without their more experienced riders and defenders in, Syracuse’s second-team continued to disrupt Colgate passers and carriers.“That second group of defense went in, turned the ball over several times and did a great job on that,” Gait said, “So it’s just nice to see that the practice (the defense) put in every day pays off.” Comments Published on February 24, 2020 at 9:27 pm Contact Tim: tnolan@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
