The pair endured a frosty relationship during Mourinho’s first spell and a truce proved temporary when the Portuguese felt so riled by Wenger last month that he re-engaged the hostility. Mourinho described Wenger as a “specialist in failure” after the Frenchman commented that anyone ruling themselves out of the title race was doing so out of a fear of falling short. Mourinho’s reaction was perhaps due to Arsenal, along with Liverpool and Manchester City, being rivals as the Blues chase just a second Premier League title since 2006 – Carlo Ancelotti led Chelsea to the 2010 championship – this season. The Chelsea manager on Friday refused to apologise for the “failure” barb, after which he felt he was unfairly portrayed as the villain, and stopped short of joining those lauding Wenger’s career. “The tribute is to say that I believe that any one of us would love to have the same privilege (of getting to 1,000 games) with our clubs,” Mourinho said. Mourinho’s career has seen him enjoy short and successful spells at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid and now back at Stamford Bridge. He respects Wenger’s longevity, particularly in the modern game, and hopes to emulate it, at least in part, with the Blues. “It was always difficult, but in modern football it is even more difficult,” he added. “If I accumulate my first three-and-a-half years with Chelsea and this one, I have a few. “And let’s see if I can reach, not 1,000, but I would say, 500 (matches). It would be fantastic.” The landmark occasion comes with Wenger chasing a first victory in 10 contests with Mourinho, who has not been beaten in 75 Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho insisted his personal record against Wenger was incidental as matches pit team against team, not manager against manager. “It doesn’t matter,” he said. “It’s not against him. It’s Chelsea against Arsenal. “I didn’t even play Arsenal with Inter Milan or with Real Madrid or with Porto, I just played with Chelsea. “It’s Chelsea-Arsenal, Arsenal-Chelsea, it’s not me against him. “Records don’t play any role. A match is a match. It’s not coach against coach, it’s team against team.” Chelsea, who beat Galatasaray to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, will be bidding to respond to last Saturday’s controversial loss to Aston Villa, when Mourinho, Ramires and Willian were sent off. Mourinho will contest his Football Association improper conduct charge, while Ramires is banned for three matches and Willian one, with both missing the Gunners visit. After the Villa Park loss Mourinho called for the Premier League not to assign referee Chris Foy to Chelsea matches in future – something which will not happen as it would set a dangerous precedent – and it is clear the manner of the defeat still rankles. Mourinho added: “Last Saturday put us in a position where probably we wouldn’t be now. Probably we’d be with more points than we have now.” Also absent on Saturday is former Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole (knee), but Nemanja Matic and Mohammed Salah are available after being ineligible in Europe in midweek. Chelsea were drawn with Paris St Germain in the Champions League last eight, something which will give Mourinho reason to once again question UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. The Blues say they are trying to live within their means while others continue to spend astronomical sums. Speaking before his side were drawn to play a PSG featuring Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, Mourinho suggested the other six teams would be keen to play his side or Manchester United, once again deploying the underdog card. “Maybe all of them want us, because Chelsea’s maybe the outsider of the group,” Mourinho said. “Maybe us and Man United, because they’re not having a great season.” Press Association Arsenal’s most recent silverware came in the 2005 FA Cup; in his 500th, they lost to Mourinho’s Chelsea, who successfully defended their Premier League title in 2006. “I admire him and I admire Arsenal, because it’s not possible to have 1,000 matches unless the club is also a fantastic club in the way they support the manager, especially in the bad moments and especially when the bad moments were quite a lot,” Mourinho said. Amid the glowing tributes to Arsene Wenger ahead of his 1,000th match in charge of Arsenal, Jose Mourinho decided to remind the Frenchman of his trophy drought which now stretches to almost nine years.

Clemson mobbed nearby, as the Orange prepared to board a flight back home, its chance at back-to-back conference titles no longer alive.Penalty kicks haven’t been kind to the Orange over the past year. After a shootout victory against North Carolina in the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals, SU has lost its last two shootouts — both to Clemson — with one coming in last year’s College Cup semifinal and one coming two Sundays ago in the ACC tournament quarterfinal.With the NCAA tournament opener for the Orange on Sunday, penalty kicks are once again a possibility if the game is tied after 110 minutes. The only time No. 8-seed Syracuse (11-3-4, 3-2-3 Atlantic Coast) can face No. 3-seed Clemson, its Achilles heel in shootouts, is the national championship game. For now, either Dartmouth or St. Francis (Brooklyn) will venture to SU Soccer Stadium for a second-round tilt, and Syracuse will hope for better fortunes on penalty kicks if the game reaches that point.“We’ve grinded out a lot of games this year and last year,” senior forward Chris Nanco said, “and we’ve been unlucky in penalty kicks.”Head coach Ian McIntyre considers several different factors when choosing his penalty-kick takers. He keeps count of each player’s percentage when the team practices penalties during the postseason while also relying on whether or not a player feels comfortable to take the spot kick come shootout time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIf there are more than five players who believe they are ready, McIntyre uses his discretion, mainly based on his practice notes, to determine who the first five will be. Against Clemson this year, SU trotted out Kamal Miller, Sergio Camargo, Jan Breitenmoser and Kenny Lassiter before Clemson ended the game without Syracuse needing a fifth taker. Nanco, who McIntyre dubbed the team’s best penalty taker, was injured and therefore didn’t take one against the Tigers.“You can never manufacture that kind of pressure in practice,” McIntyre said. “You can also have a number of guys that during the run of the game, things can happen as well. It’s not a perfect science, but there is some kind of thought process that goes through it … You can have an idea of guys that you want … but things can change as well.”The head coach says there are 10-12 players he trusts to take a penalty. Two Sundays ago, Camargo stepped to the spot with less than five minutes remaining in regulation and Syracuse trailing, 1-0. He slotted the penalty home, but then missed his penalty in the shootout.For the senior transfer from Coastal Carolina, he chooses which side he’s kicking to before the kick and tries to deceive the goalie as much as possible with hip and eye movements. Nanco, who has a ritual of taking three steps back and two to the left after he places the ball, normally goes to his right but switches it up on occasion since he believes opponents have seen film of him going right.McIntyre doesn’t instruct players on how to take a penalty or give his team a detailed scouting report of which way the goalkeeper tends to dive. Against the Tigers, SU faced a goalkeeper in Brady Allardice who didn’t play in regulation but was brought on just to save penalties. McIntyre said he tries not to overload players with information because “It’s like telling Shaquille O’Neal, ‘This is the way to shoot a free throw.’”“We had some guys, who I would say are much better than me and some other guys that actually took the PKs but weren’t feeling that day,” Camargo said. “Some other day, maybe I’ll feel the same way.” Comments
Since 2016, Nigeria have been on the rise in world football. The Football Association took a more youthful outlook towards the national team. Young Nigerians all over Europe were contacted by the FA and committed to play for the Super Eagles. A new generation of the Super Eagles led by Leon Balogun, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho will be seen in Russia. The team strolled through qualifying, easily dispatching African heavyweights Algeria and Cameroon, and 2012 AFCON winners Zambia. The west Africans scored 11 goals, joint-second highest scorers on the continent.This new generation is marshalled by German coach Gernot Rohr. What makes this new-look side worth the hype? As part of Joy Sports focus on African teams, here’s a tactical look at how they shape up.System & StyleRohr is perhaps most famously known for leading French side Bordeaux to the UEFA Cup final in 1996. He stayed in France, going on to coach Nice, Nantes and Ajaccio. After 2009, the German found himself on the international coaching scene. Rohr spent time as coach of nations like Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso before finally being appointed as head coach of Nigeria in 2016. He instilled team spirit, discipline and a strong mentality to the new wave of Nigerian starlets who now carry the mantle of the Super Eagles.“The African style of football is all about improvisation and creativity, but also sometimes involves forgetting about discipline and defensive organization,” Gernot Rohr said in an interview with The Guardian newspaper. This is a summary of Rohr’s style in itself. The German has created a potent counterattacking side who can beat any team on their day. Gernot Rohr opts for his trusted 4-2-3-1, for defensive security and efficient counterattacks. Nigeria’s gameplan involves a compact defensive approach with the aim to win the ball and create goalscoring chances on the counter. This team breaks with serious pace in the frontline, something that will surely cause problems to the bigger sides they will meet. Rohr’s men defend as a unit and rely on their midfield to transition rapidly. Nigeria will play direct football to exploit the pace and skill of their frontline. System Strengths:Nigeria’s most potent weapon is their counter attacking ability. Rohr bases his gameplan on using direct football to stretch the opponent and cause havoc in the final 3rd. The electric pace of the Nigerian frontline will definitely be a problem when the tournament kicks off. Their technical ability is frightening too. Alex Iwobi’s drives the team forward with finesse, guile and electric dribbling ability, Victor Moses can easily beat his opponent to get into the box or cross from the byline and Odion Ighalo is a scary combination of strength, speed and finishing. If that is not enough to put opponents on high alert, the supporting cast is as good as the starters. Ahmed Musa was Nigeria’s top scorer in their last world cup with two goals. Kelechi Iheanacho, the Super Eagles’ youngest attacker, has 8 goals in 18 caps. The Leicester man is considered as one of the best young strikers in Europe and the whole world will bear witness in Russia. The midfield plays a huge role in Rohr’s counter attacking system. Former Chelsea man John Obi Mikel plays ahead of the two ball winners, Ogenyi Onazi and Wilfred Ndidi in Rohr’s setup. They operate at the base of the midfield to shield the defence. Ndidi and Onazi excel in breaking up play and Mikel conducts the play and dictates the pace of the game with his intelligent ball distribution. What the midfield trio possess in common is the ability to transition from defence to attack, each of them comfortable with pinging passes from deep positions to open up defences and supply the forwards in the final third.System Weakness: Nigeria’s weakness will be the relative inexperience of the defence. The expected back five of Uhozo, Shehu, Balogun, Troos-Ekong and Idowu have a combined 77 caps and an average age of 24.4 years.There will be huge question marks surrounding this defence as players like Uzoho and Idowu recently became full internationals. The defensive players have the talent, but there are concerns that they are too young and raw. Teams need defenders with big-time experience to succeed in major tournaments. Rohr decided to ditch Ikechukwu Ezenwa and put faith in 19-year-old Francis Uzoho to start between the sticks in Russia. The keeper has appeared in recent friendlies and has only 6 caps in total. After Vincent Enyeama’s departure from the international scene and Carl Ikeme’s leukemia diagnosis, the Super Eagles have struggled to find a decent shot stopper. Nigeria’s hopes on qualifying lie on the shoulders of a teenager who has only 180 minutes of senior competitive football under his belt with Deportivo La Coruna.SummaryDefeats in their recent warm-up matches have caused quite a stir in the media. However, Rohr sees these losses as an opportunity refocus attention on the squad’s deficiencies before the tournament begins. Their superb attacking ability and mentality as a team saw them past Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria. They are capable of causing a few upsets and they have the personnel to pull it off. The Super Eagles must be at their best to escape the group. It’s a three-way fight for second place with Croatia and Iceland. Nigeria possess a team that can overcome these odds, but their hopes of qualification rely on that first encounter with Croatia.– #JoyWorldCup: Click here for our full coverage Click here for Nigeria team profile–Follow the World Cup with the Multimedia Group!

But when informed of Guy’s remarks, NCAA President Mark Emmert said that is not correct, and he wonders where Guy got the information.”What we know right now is nobody in the NCAA said anything of the sort,” Emmert said. “We don’t know what the source of that information was. … It’s certainly not the case that it’s a violation of NCAA rules.”Perhaps someone along the way misinterpreted that a wedding registry would violate NCAA rules prohibiting players from accepting cash or other impermissible benefits.”We allow people to have all the usual and accustomed gifts among family and friends at all holidays and weddings of the sort,” Emmert said. “There’s not a prohibition against that.”We’ve been reaching back out already to the university to try to find out what transpired there. That’s simply an inaccurate story.”Guy, a two-time first-team All-ACC selection and two-time third-team All-American, led the Cavaliers in scoring (15.6 points per game) this season. “That was crazy to me that that was illegal because that’s what a registry is for,” Guy said. “The NCAA said it was illegal so I’m not gonna argue with it right now. I’m gonna try to win a national championship right now. Then we’ll open that book.”Guy’s fiancee, Alexa Jenkins, had tweeted her frustration with the supposed rule Wednesday.
