Neumayr: I can only say positive things about Ronaldo

first_img “He knew everything about the ‘B’ team players. When I was with the first team during my last year, I was always at the back of the bus with Gerard Pique and him.” Sir Alex Ferguson persuaded the promising attacking midfielder to join United in 2003 when he was 16 and at Eintracht Frankfurt and the now 34-year-old recalled being invited for dinner at the former United manager’s home.

His wife made tea for us and we talked about football for an hour. He explained what the club stands for and what he planned to do with me. For me, a 16-year-old youngster, this was very, very impressive,” he said. Despite not making an appearance for the first team during his three years at the club – before he left for Duisburg in 2006 – the midfielder trained with the first team and gave his insight on Ferguson’s coaching style. “I didn’t perceive it as extreme as some stories say,” he said. “But he was very demanding and critical of the players. “Unfortunately, I did not experience the legendary boot throw on David Beckham, but I can visualise it. It was Ferguson’s great strength that he always knew who to tackle and how. “He approached Rooney or Roy Keane very directly, for example, but treated the shy Ruud van Nistelrooy way more gently on the other hand. Rooney and Keane are two warhorses, used to a certain toughness. In England there is a different way of dealing with each other.

On the outside, it may have a somewhat repellent look, but his behaviour is just a protective mask. I perceived him as a very friendly and open guy,” Neumayr told Goal and Spox. “At that time he was in the first team, but was also very interested in us from the ‘B’ team.last_img read more

Ice cool Vic lifts Kenya over Madagascar

first_imgStars were lucky to be level at 0-0 at the break after Madagascar themselves had a penalty, but keeper Patrick Matasi came to the rescue with a powerful left arm to ensure the boys stood a chance despite a poor first half.Off a swiftly  executed counter, Madagascar were away and Metanire Romain sent Tsilavina Martin through into the box. Matasi came out to cover and in his outstretched arms brought down the lanky forward.From the resultant penalty, the keeper made amends, leaping to is right and his strong left hand parried Charles Andriamahitsinoro’s penalty onto the crossbar and out.Harambee Stars winger Ayub Timbe vies for the ball with Madagascar’s Charles Andriamahitsinoro during their friendly match at the Stade Robert Boban in Paris on June 7, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMadagascar who camped in Kenya’s half for most of the opening 45 minutes created more chances and should have been up by at least two or more goals, were they more clinical in the final third.They started knocking on the door early with Rayan providing the first danger with a curled ball that went just over when he cited Matasi a few yards off his line.In the 22nd minute, Andriamahitsinoro came inches close when his shot from inside the box was deflected onto the crossbar after Kenya struggled to clear the ball from a cutback on the left.Just before that effort, Kenya had survived another flow of attack, this time thanks to Musa Mohammed who made a great block after throwing his body on the floor to keep out a shot from Andriatsina Faneva.Harambee Stars winger Ayub Timbe moves ahead against a challenge from Madagascar’s Tsilavina Martin during their friendly match at the Stade Robert Boban in Paris on June 7, 2019.

Ayub Timbe was Kenya’s most colorful player, but most of his runs and dribbles couldn’t bring much of results.At the start of the second half, Migne made changes, Musa, Johannah and John Avire coming off for Joseph Okumu, Eric Ouma and Michael Olunga.Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga gallops upfield against Madagascar during their friendly match at the Stade Robert Boban in Paris on June 7, 2019.

He showed his prowess within minutes, winning the ball from range but his shot went wide.The improved performance with the introduction of pace on the wing and some assured legs in attack saw Kenya get rewarded with the game’s opening goal.Timbe broke away on the left and his attempted cross was cut off by the arms of Norel Jeremy. Skipper Wanyama stepped up and made no mistake from the spot, sending the keeper the wrong way.Stars were buoyed by the lead and hugely improved. Olunga came close when he picked up the ball at the edge of the box cutting off a Madagascar miss pass, but his curling effort went inches wide off target.Madagascar had two late chances on the other end, but both went begging as Stars held on for the victory.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Victor Wanyama steps up to score the penalty against Madagascar in a friendly match at the Stade Robert Boban in Paris on June 7, 2019.
