Kurzawa extends PSG deal until 2024

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Layvin Kurzawa has put pen to paper on a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain until the summer of 2024.Back in January, the left back had been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the Premier League and his future at the Parc des Princes appeared almost over. However, just as his contract was set to expire, Kurzawa has now signed a new four-year contract with the Ligue 1 giants – keeping him in Paris until 2024.Arsenal had been monitoring Kurzawa’s position at PSG with Mikel Arteta eyeing defensive reinforcements as he looks to rejuvenate his squad following an extremely turbulent season.But Kurzawa has ended any speculation over his future after committing to the French giants in the long-term.The 27-year-old has featured 123 times for PSG since joining the club back in 2015 from Ligue 1 counterparts Monaco.He has scored 13 goals, including a hat-trick against Anderlecht in the Champions League in 2017, while providing 21 assists during that time. After making the move to the French capital five years ago, Kurzawa has won four Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups and three League Cups.Tags: ArsenalLayvin KurzawaParis Saint-GermainPremier Leaguelast_img read more

Trap to stick to his guns

first_img They head into the game brimming with confidence after Friday’s 0-0 draw in Sweden, which kept alive their hopes of claiming second spot in Group C. However, that point will only prove worthwhile if they add three more to it this evening, and while that may require a different approach, Trapattoni will not throw caution to the wind. He said: “I saw 20 games before I came to Ireland – I don’t remember this ‘show’. To remember the show, I must go back to Roy Keane and that great team. I played against this strong Ireland team. But for 24 years, we had been missing tournaments. I saw many games on DVD and I can’t remember seeing this.” Giovanni Trapattoni has insisted victory is all that matters for Ireland in tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Austria. Press Associationcenter_img The Italian continued: “Our team has produced this and we can win. Against France and against the teams in the first qualifying campaign, against Georgia, Montenegro and also Bulgaria, we played great football. Don’t forget, we have played well in the past.” Trapattoni has never made any apologies for his concentration on substance rather than style, although he went into the game in Stockholm knowing defeat could have signalled the end of his tenure. His pragmatism will come to the fore once again when he employs striker Connor Sammon alongside Shane Long in the absence of injured skipper Robbie Keane, because he believes the Derby frontman will be better suited to the task of both extending the Austrian defence and closing them down in possession than the more creative Wes Hoolahan. Provided that left-back Marc Wilson shakes off a groin injury, the Italian’s starting XI will see only one further change with Glenn Whelan returning in place of Paul Green. That will mean only two of the men who started the final Euro 2012 game against Italy in Poznan will remain, largely as a result of retirements and injuries. Whelan is one, and the other is Sunderland defender John O’Shea, whose experience among so many youngsters could prove vital. Trapattoni said: “He has personality whether he plays right-back or centre-half. He plays always in first team of a Premier League club and has played many games. “He can also play right-back, but at this moment he will stay at centre-half, where his experience as defender now is important as we are missing Richard Dunne.” last_img read more

Alumnus creates USC-exclusive dating app

first_imgThe new app, Dating Trojans, aims to connect past and current students with others affiliated with USC for both dating and networking. (Jonathon Xue | Daily Trojan)After failing to find a partner on dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, USC alumnus Sergio Pedroza decided to create his own platform to connect Trojans. Last month, Pedroza founded Dating Trojans, an app for USC students and alumni to connect and form professional, personal and romantic relationships. “People will hopefully find love on our app, and that’s amazing, but it’s also dating professionals or just going out to get coffee with people that you would never have access to outside of your existing network,” Pedroza said. Pedroza said the app is also a way for students and graduates to stay connected.Although users can currently download the app and get screened, the network won’t officially open until December 2018 or January 2019. For the screening process, the app verifies that all users previously attended or are currently attending USC. Pedroza said Dating Trojans will email potential users and ask them various questions such as their major, graduation year and which student organizations they were or are involved. Once the app determines that users are USC students or alumni, Pedroza said they will be given full access to see other users’ profiles and learn about various events on and around campus. Alumna Lindsay Mercadante said she gave Pedroza feedback on the app’s features and layout while he was developing it. Compared to other dating apps, Mercadante said Dating Trojans’ screening process allows users to know certain information before connecting with others on the app.“Everyone is going to be a part of the Trojan network, which means that they’re an actual person and [that] is already something tangible that you have in common,” Mercadante said. “Each of the profiles are vetted and verified … so you’ll have [a guarantee] that you’re actually dealing with a person who has been proven to be exactly who they identify themselves as.”USC alumnus Siddhant Gupta also said he gave Pedroza feedback on the app’s functions and design. He thinks having an app catered to the USC community will strengthen connections between users. “That is part of what makes it so unique and part of what will help make those better connections,” Gupta said. “USC is a very tight-knit community, the alumni association is so strong and the graduates have so much of a network. I think having that mutual connection will make it a little more special than other apps.” While Pedroza has not finalized all of the app’s features, he said users will be able to see multiple profiles at once, including images and personal information. Pedroza said he also plans to promote on-campus events and local restaurants where users can meet. He hopes that once the app officially opens, users will use it to make a variety of connections within the USC community.“We put you in a position to land you that job. We put you in a position to network with someone that will absolutely benefit your career. We put you in a position to meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with and maybe marry one day,” Pedroza said. “That’s our ultimate goal, to be the bridge between people within that network and allow them to accomplish amazing things like we’ve always been told we can do.”last_img read more

Jerry Rice believes Larry Fitzgerald could pass him on receptions list

first_imgLarry Fitzgerald is in elite company. The Cardinals wide receiver reached 1,326 catches Sunday against the Seahawks and passed Tony Gonzalez for second all-time on the NFL receptions list. Fitzgerald trails only Jerry Rice with 1,549 catches, but the Hall of Fame receiver thinks it’s just a matter of time before he passes him, too.”He told me one thing. He was like, ‘You know what, there’s no celebration in being second,'” Rice said Tuesday on NFL NOW. “So, he’s got me looking over my shoulder right now, because if anybody can do it, I think it’s Larry Fitzgerald, because of his conditioning, his worth ethic and stuff like that. He’s just a great football player. Related News “This is just Year 16 for him. I played 20 years and I think with the game today, I think you’re going to see guys play much longer.”While Rice is rooting for Fitzgerald to break his reception record one day, he noted that career catches isn’t the only NFL record he holds.”It would be great to see. It’s gonna take a couple more years,” Rice said. “I told him, I said, ‘Well you know, Larry, if you break one of my records, I still got 36 more.'” Bears’ Khalil Mack ‘can’t wait’ to play Raiders in Londoncenter_img Fitzgerald, 36, has spent his entire NFL career in Arizona and considered retirement this offseason before returning to the Cardinals on a one-year deal.He finished 2018 with 1,303 career receptions, breaking Rice’s record of most receptions (1,281) with one team.Arizona (0-3-1) is slated to visit Cincinnati (0-4) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
