Legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas is returning to Real Madrid as an advisor to club president Florentino Perez. It follows a week in which both Porto and Madrid won their respective league titles, with Casillas expected to officially announce his retirement from football at the end of the campaign. The goalkeeper left Madrid in the summer of 2015 and as Marca highlight, that was following an acrimonious fallout with Perez whereby he was allowed to leave the Spanish giants ‘through the back door’. However, that now appears to be water under the bridge with Casillas – the player with the second most games in the club’s history (725) – now due to return to the Spanish capital. Last month, Casillas announced he was withdrawing from the Spanish FA presidential elections having been due to stand against the current incumbent Luis Rubiales.

(REUTERS) – Former England coach Andy Flower said on Saturday that he was stepping down from working with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after 12 years.Zimbabwean Flower coached England to Ashes glory three times between 2009 and 2014, with England reaching number one in the test rankings during his five-year spell in charge as well as clinching a surprise World T20 triumph in 2010.For the last five years, Flower, 51, has coached England’s second-tier Lions team, but will now leave the ECB.“It’s been a real privilege,” he said in a statement. “The Ashes victory in 2010-11 stands out. It’s difficult to win in Australia, and to do it so comprehensively was a really proud moment in my coaching career.“I will still be based in England and I will continue to watch English cricket very keenly — it has a very bright future.”ECB managing director, Ashley Giles, praised the work Flower had done during his time in England.“Andy moves on with every best wish from all of us at ECB for his outstanding contribution to the English game over the last 12 years,” Giles said in a statement.“It has been a pleasure working with Andy, who sets such high standards of professionalism and preparation for the teams he leads. I have no doubt he will enjoy further success in the years to come.” read more
Manchester City can move back above Liverpool in the title race with a win over Crystal Palace today. On paper, this is no contest. Crystal Palace have already lost eight home games this season, and scored only 13 times in 16 matches, and are now without both first-choice centre-halves.Palace have won just 41% of their Premier League points in home games this season (16/39), the lowest such ratio in the divisionManchester City will spy it as an opportunity. Yet Roy Hodgson’s side were one of two clubs to stop City scoring in the league last season, missing a last minute penalty which might have won this fixture, and remain the only team to claim points from the Etihad Stadium this term. Crystal Palace are looking to complete the top-flight double over Manchester City for the first time since the 1972-73 campaign. Indeed, the last non-big six side to beat the Citizens twice in the same Premier League season were Everton back in 2010-11Manchester City have won their last eight Premier League games, keeping a clean sheet in six of the last seven.City boss Pep Guardiola has won 23 of his 27 Premier League matches against English managers (D3 L1), with his only such defeat to date coming against Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace in the reverse fixture earlier this season.City will check on left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko and playmaker Bernardo Silva. The pair missed the Champions League defeat at Tottenham on Tuesday with hamstring and thigh injuries respectively.Benjamin Mendy, who is being eased back into action after knee trouble, could come back into contention while Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane might start after late substitute roles at Spurs..Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram read more
Water cure, impalement, the rack, strappado, the boot — all are forms of torture. While the suffering I endured for 50 minutes before tapping out was by no means as grotesque, it was perhaps as unbearable. Friday night I did what no sports fan should ever have to do: watch an entire NBA game. After spending the first part of my Friday night at the Shell shooting around and lifting, I came back to my apartment and crashed, worn out from my long week of midterms and beard growing. The TV was left on, turned to ESPN’s broadcast of the Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz game. I figured, “what the heck, I haven’t seen an NBA game in a while, I’ll watch this — see how these two teams look.” Now, I can recite just about anything anyone could possibly want to know about the majority of NBA players — their season stats, career numbers, heights, college attended and even their birthdates — but the last time I actually watched a game in its entirety was Game 6 of the NBA Finals last June. Friday night’s game didn’t break the streak. Watching the Nuggets and Jazz play was about as entertaining as sitting through an episode of the sitcom “The Book of Daniel.” And we all know how that turned out. The game was awful. Even watching Cher sing or studying for my upcoming exam sounded more appealing than forcing myself back on the couch to watch another NBA game. To think, four or five years ago, pro hoops was my favorite professional league to watch. There’s no doubt that the players are quite talented and can pretty much score at will. Still, not picking up your guy on a screen-n-roll or just watching from afar as Carmelo Anthony dunks ball after ball is hardly professionalism. Isolations, the modern game’s offensive set of choice, have slowed the game way down, as indicated by the eight other guys standing around. On the other end, a cutout of Melo would be just as effective as having the league’s leading scorer actually in the game. Defense simply is not played — Carlos Boozer, Anthony and Allen Iverson started off 5-of-5, 6-of-6 and 4-of-5, respectively — period. These types of efforts, or lack thereof, have made the NBA so pathetic. Scores today are 114-104, or 122-96. A few years back, the Detroit Pistons held its opponents under 80 regularly. Sure, higher scores are supposed to mean more excitement, but in the NBA’s case, that’s not how it works. The fire that once sparked the NBA is now gone. All that’s left is a bunch of highly athletic, lazy individuals. What’s more, the broadcasters are no better. I know John Madden is Captain Obvious at times, but Friday night’s announcers, Bill Walton and Brad Nessler, were atrocious. Neither paid attention to the game at hand, indicated by Walton’s error on the number of traveling violations that had been called — there were five, not four — and their discussion of how their families were doing. When the topics were game-related it was about the same topic — Deron Williams has really improved for the Utah Jazz after a tumultuous rookie campaign. Moreover, the legendary Nessler mispronounced Jazz back-up center Rafael Araujo’s name (HA-f-eye-ell a-RA-U-joe) as well as Nuggets reserve Linas Kleiza (CLAY-za). The latter, Walton thankfully corrected. Is it really that hard to prepare before the game? Or would you prefer to put forth the 10 percent effort it seems every NBA player gives on the defensive end. If eight-time All-NBA first team defenseman Scottie Pippen really wants to come back, he’ll be in for a reality check. Not only would he likely struggle to keep up with the up-tempo game at 41 years old, but his most valuable asset, his defense, would go to waste. The NBA should just cancel the rest of the season. Give the NBA Championship to the Dallas Mavericks (46-9) and be done with it. No more suffering for sports fans alike, no more traveling violations uncalled and no more cardboard cutouts on defense. For an industry that calls itself entertainment, the NBA sure drops the ball. Kevin Hagstrom is a junior double majoring in journalism and economics. If you can’t stand what the NBA has become send your complaints to David Stern, not him at firstname.lastname@example.org. read more
DT: How have the Beavers improved since USC beat them last year in Corvallis?DB: A lot has changed since last year’s game. Sean Mannion’s presence in the pocket and his footwork have greatly improved; this awareness and mobility aids in his ability to find open receivers and make better decisions, while giving him more time.Also, the team’s defense appears to have found another step. With a core group of returning seniors including [cornerback] Steven Nelson [and linebackers] Michael Doctor and D.J. Alexander, the Beavers look poised to disrupt and pressure the USC offense.Lastly, the OSU running game has grown into a threat, as opposed to last year’s afterthought. Terron Ward and Storm Woods have developed into a two-back set that plays on each other’s strengths. DT: Prediction?DB: This game will be significantly closer than last year’s trouncing. USC will have to contain the running game better than they did against Boston College and keep that Trojan offense rolling.Mannion and the Beavers will need to spread the ball around and the defense will need the tenacity they presented in their first three match-ups. The Coliseum is also a tough place to play, so controlling the atmosphere will be a key for both teams. In the end, USC will come out on top, but I wouldn’t be surprised by an upset.Final score: USC 24, Oregon State 14. The 18th-ranked Trojan football team is gearing up for its second Pac-12 showing this Saturday against Oregon State.The Beavers (3-0) are receiving some national attention for their stellar quarterback, Sean Mannion, but are otherwise a relatively unknown squad.Hear me roar · Junior defensive end Leonard Williams will play a big role in slowing down Oregon State running back Storm Woods. – Mariya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanOregon State is trying to establish a new identity following the loss wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who led the nation in receiving yards last year.Daily Trojan sports editor Aubrey Kragen interviewed Oregon State’s Daily Barometer sports editor TeJo Pack to provide Trojan fans with a better idea of what to expect tomorrow night. DT: How have the Beavers compensated for the loss of 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner Brandin Cooks?DB: The loss of an outstanding wide receiver like Cooks is always hard for a team, but it has allowed for the younger receivers to step up and make the big plays. Sophomore Rahmel Dockery showed last week that given the chance, he can make big plays and be a deep threat.Richard Mullaney and tight end Connor Hamlett both have over 100 yards receiving this season and are averaging more than 10 yards per catch. With these factors, it’s safe to say that Mannion will have plenty of other receivers to throw to, even without Cooks. DT: Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion is averaging 301.0 yards per game this season. Do you expect him to go over or under in the match-up with USC’s secondary?DB: With Su’a Cravens patrolling the backfield, USC’s secondary is nothing to ignore, and I’m sure Oregon State’s receivers dedicated some serious film time to this part of the defense.Though Mannion is missing some of the deep threat ability he had last year, I believe his newfound skills and a more aggressive running game will make for a competitive passing attack, even with the absence of [wide receiver] Victor Bolden. I predict he will float right around the 300 mark again this week. DT: Who do you think will be Oregon State’s impact player of the game?DB: On the offensive side of the ball, Dockery has a very real chance of having a break out game and with the absence of Bolden, we should really see what he can do. Likewise, Terron Ward seems to be coming into his own as a ball carrier, so look for him to do great things.On defense, Steven Nelson will always be a threat in the secondary, but watch out for D.J. Alexander. He came out with a real fire in his belly last week, and this week looks to be no different. read more
