Moreover, I had no clear plan, because I had already fulfilled my dream: playing at Ajax. “Everything went wrong from the start, it just didn’t fit. I had a good year, got to know nice people. But it wasn’t good on the sporting field. “For a long time I had the hope that it would work out. After my first season, a new manager arrived with Marco Silva. I thought I might get a chance under him, but I was soon told that there were too many players and he didn’t trust me. That was good, because it allowed me to think about the next step.” last_img read more

Ramos: Real fans can go home happy again

first_imgSergio Ramos was delighted to send the Real Madrid fans home happy after the team produced an “outstanding performance” to record a hard-fought 2-0 win over Sevilla on Saturday.The European champions were fortunate not to be behind at the break after Sevilla missed the best chance of the first half at the Santiago Bernabeu, Sergio Escudero firing into the side-netting at the end of a crisp counter-attacking move.Yet Madrid were by far the better side throughout the second half, Casemiro eventually rewarding their dominance when his long-range curler in the 78th minute found the net despite goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik getting a hand to the ball.

Luka Modric added a second in stoppage time, the Croatian midfielder slotting home when in the clear as Santiago Solari’s side leapfrogged their opponents to move into third place in the table.The late double ensured Ramos marked his 450th La Liga appearance with a well-deserved three points, even if both Madrid’s players and supporters had to patiently wait for the goals to arrive.”We needed to rediscover our best form. You can see today it was an outstanding performance,” Madrid’s captain said in his post-match interview on the pitch.”We dominated throughout the game and scored two goals, but the second goal came late. We could have added more, had we been a bit better in front of goal.”But we needed to win – and to win in style. It was a good win for our fans. We always feel connected with the fans in the stands.”I called for the fans because we are stronger when we are together. You have to keep that call alive so people keep believing in our play.”I believe that the fans can go home happy today.”Madrid – who needed an 88th-minute winner from Dani Ceballos to triumph 2-1 in the league at Real Betis last Sunday – are next in action in the Copa del Rey, hosting Girona on Thursday in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.last_img read more

Inter boss Conte out to catch up with Juventus

Inter boss Conte out to catch up with Juventus

first_imgAntonio Conte says he found it easy to accept the role as Inter coach, but has warned his new team will have to work harder than anyone else to catch up with Juventus and Napoli.The former Juventus, Italy and Chelsea boss returned to his homeland to replace Luciano Spalletti at the helm of the San Siro outfit at the end of May.Inter finished fourth in Serie A last season, 21 points behind Juventus, and while the Bianconeri have won each of the last eight league titles, Inter have not finished higher than fourth since 2011. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare By hiring the man who coached Juve to the first three of those domestic crowns, Inter are hoping to narrow the gap on the Turin giants.While Conte was excited to join the Nerazzurri because they have a similar ambition, he says it will take great effort to achieve their goals.”It was easy to choose Inter,” he said at a press conference. “We found ourselves having the same vision and this was very important for me when I found myself talking to the manager and the president.”We found ourselves sharing the same ambition, the same desire to build something important knowing that we will have to go through a path made of hard work, effort and sweat.”The presence of director Giuseppe Marotta was certainly an incentive. He knows me well, he knows what my strengths and weaknesses are as I know his. I chose a club with great tradition, one of the most important in the world, it was easy to accept.”He added: “I am a person who has no limits and I don’t want others to set themselves at the beginning of the season. In setting limits I would immediately give the team excuses and I don’t want this to happen.”We know very well that in the last few years that a huge gap has been opened up for two teams, especially Juventus, but there is also Napoli, who have shown they can compete at a high level.”We know that we are called to work harder than others to fill this gap, but we must start with the ambition to give everything we have and in the end we will see what happens.”We need to talk little and work hard. ‘Head down and ride’ should be our motto, we will have to be fierce and focused on our goal, which is to bring stability. “If we want to have a season as challengers we must have these characteristics, we must work, sacrifice ourselves, question ourselves and every Sunday we will have to leave the field with a sweaty shirt. This is what I will demand from the players and I know they can do it.”Inter have signed Valentino Lazaro from Hertha Berlin during the current transfer window, while Matteo Politano and Eddie Salcedo made their moves to San Siro permanent, having spent last season on loan from Sassuolo and Genoa respectively.last_img read more
