“There’s no alternative” Hojbjerg decides to ‘force stay’…rejects all Tottenham January offers

Tottenham have decided to reject a January move for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

“Tottenham are set to reject all offers for both Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp in January,” the Telegraph reported on Tuesday. European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano also confirmed that Tottenham will reject any loan offers for Hojbjerg during the January winter transfer window.

He arrived at Tottenham in August 2020 for a transfer fee of £15 million. He was a regular starter under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

However, he was relegated to a backup role after Enze Postecoglou took over. He lost out to Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr.

Still, he was a starter. Spanish side Atletico Madrid had already shown interest in the transfer market last summer. Italian Serie A giants Juventus and Dutch side Ajax also joined the chase. 캡틴토토 도메인

But Hojbjerg can’t leave. After being sidelined for eight months with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, Rodrigo Bentancur has hit another injury reef.

He started against Aston Villa on the 26th but went down again. Scans revealed a torn ankle ligament. Bentancur will be out until February next year.

On top of that, Bissouma and Sarr, who represent Mali and Senegal, will be at the Africa Cup of Nations next January. There is no alternative. Hojbjerg must step up.

He’s made 12 appearances in the English Premier League (EPL) this season, but only two starts. He’s played 435 minutes.

He is contracted to Tottenham until June 2025. Change in the January transfer window is a sweet temptation.

But for now, Tottenham are in good hands, at least for this season.

‘FA 최대어’ Yang Seok-hwan stays with Doosan… 4+2년 ’70억원 후반’ 계약 합의 ‘2024 FA 최고 금액 예약’

Yang Seok-hwan (34-Doosan Bears) will remain a ‘Bearsman’.

The Doosan Bears and Yang Seok-hwan concluded their second round of free agency negotiations on May 29. The total amount is in the late 7 billion won range for 4+2 years. It is a four-year guaranteed contract with a mutual option for two years after 2028. This is actually the highest amount of money booked in the free agent market this season, surpassing Ahn Chi-hong (4+2 years, 7.2 billion won), who signed with the Hanwha Eagles on April 20.

The first free agent negotiations were held on the 27th of this month.

Doosan was wary of “overpaying” in this round of FA negotiations. In recent years, the salary cap has been tight after signing league-leading players such as Heo Kyung-min, Jeong Soo-bin, Kim Jae-hwan, and Yang Yang-ji, and with another internal free agent, Hong Gun-hee, also set to sign, the team couldn’t just open its wallet.

Yang’s camp also recognized this. First and foremost, Yang’s love for Doosan was deep. Although he was open to negotiating with other clubs, he decided to stay with Doosan early on and set the table.

Doosan also realized that the first meeting was not a bad one and was able to negotiate more aggressively. The two sides realized that the differences in terms of the contract were not significant, and the contract started to take off.

The second meeting resulted in an immediate contract. On the afternoon of the 29th, the meeting was finalized. Negotiations continued until late in the afternoon, and both Doosan and Yang Suk-hwan finalized the agreement with some acceptance of each other’s opinions.

Yang was drafted by the LG Twins in the third round (28th overall) of the 2014 KBO Draft after graduating from Shinil High School and Dongguk University, and was acquired by Doosan in a trade in March 2021.

Doosan received Yang and left-hander Nam Ho, while sending LG left-hander Ham Deok-ju and right-hander Chae Ji-seon.

Doosan’s acquisition of Yang was a “huge success. The former “big guns prospect” blossomed into a full-fledged starter for Doosan, which had a hole at first base after Oh Jae-il left for Samsung as a free agent. In his first year with the team, Yang quickly became the starting first baseman, batting .275 with 28 home runs in 133 games, leading the team in home runs.

The following year, a series of injuries limited Yang to 107 games, and his batting average dropped slightly to 2.244, but his power remained the same. He hit 20 home runs and was a solid center fielder.

This season, he played in 140 games, batting .281 with 21 home runs. That’s good for fifth in the league in home runs.

He’s done a great job as a center fielder, but he’s also a senior on the team who leads his teammates.

This season, Yang made a heart with his hands after every hit or home run, and the club connected it to a donation project. The Doosan players also joined in on the heart gesture, which became part of Doosan’s culture earlier this season.

In September, Kang Seung-ho showed extraordinary “camaraderie” by taking his broken bat and gluing it back together after his cycling hit. In addition, he won the hearts of fans by performing rainy weather ceremonies with senior players, which is usually reserved for the youngest players. A Doosan official said, “He can be seen as the next captain, and he leads the younger players well.” 아톰카지노 도메인

After the season, Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop asked the club to “crack down on internal free agents.” Lee said, “Yang Seok-hwan is a hitter who can hit 20 home runs, and Hong Gun-hee has 20 saves. It’s not easy to find players like this,” he said, adding, “Both Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Gun-hee are trusted by their juniors and teammates. We need both of them.” The biggest challenge, retaining Yang Seok-hwan, turned out to be a success.

After completing the contract with Yang Seok-hwan, Doosan will meet with Hong Gun-hee’s side on the 30th to negotiate.

South Korean women’s golf enters Paris Olympics race…with Shin Ji-ae and Yang Hee-young in the mix

Competition for South Korea’s women’s golf team at next year’s Paris Olympics is expected to be fiercer than ever.

Any country with four or more players ranked in the top 15 in the world can send up to four players to the Olympics. The Korean women’s golf team sent all four players to the Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo Olympics.

However, next year’s Paris Olympics will not be the same as the previous two. This is because there are currently only three players in the world’s top 15.

They are Ko Jin-young (28-Solare), Kim Hyo-joo (28-Lotte), and Shin Ji-ae (35), who is ranked sixth and seventh respectively.

Yang Hee-young (34) has a good chance of cracking the “top 15” at No. 16, but she is followed by Hae-ran Hae (22-DAOL Financial Group) at No. 30, which is a long way from the top 15.

The entry deadline for golf at the Paris Olympics is next June. In order to qualify for South Korea, a player must be in the “top 15” and finish in the top four among Korean players.

Based on their current rankings, Ko Jin-young and Kim Hyo-joo are in the clear. Given their recent performances, Shin Ji-ae and Yang Hee-young could also qualify for their first Olympic Games.캡틴토토 주소

In a press conference after the season finale of the Japan Ladies Professional Golf (JLPGA) Tour, Shin said, “Next year is the Paris Olympics. My world ranking has gone up, and I want to play in the Olympics at least once,” she said.

Shin’s project to compete in the Paris Olympics began at the beginning of the season. She realized that her JLPGA Tour results weren’t enough to improve her world ranking, so she took advantage of every opportunity to play on the Ladies Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour.

With a runner-up finish at the U.S. Women’s Open and a third-place finish at the AIG Women’s Open, she was able to improve her world ranking to within striking distance of qualifying for the Olympics.

Next year, Shin is expected to play more LPGA Tour events before the Olympic entry deadline. She will most likely play in the majors before June, including the HSBC World Championship in February, the Chevron Championship and the U.S. Women’s Open, which are expected to feature top players.

Fresh off her season-ending CME Group Tour Championship victory, Hee-young Yang will likely take an aggressive approach to her season early next year as she looks to make her second Olympic appearance since Rio in 2016.

Yang will first look to the Honda LPGA Thailand in Thailand next February as a gauge of her Olympic chances. Yang has three of her five career wins at the Honda LPGA Thailand.

If she can win a fourth title in Thailand, her chances of qualifying for the Paris Olympics will increase.

“It’s nice to have, but it’s not worth the money”… ‘Free agent’ first baseman Yang Seok-hwan

At the end of the 2023 KBO season, “veteran” Jeon Jun-woo (37) signed a four-year, $4.7 billion contract with the Lotte Giants, signaling the start of the free agent market. Fellow Lotte player Ahn Chi-hong (33) then ignited the market by signing with the Hanwha Eagles for up to six years and 7.2 billion won. When KT WIZ closer Kim Jae-yoon (33) signed with the Samsung Lions for four years and 5.8 billion won, the stovepipe began to boil.

However, there has been no word on Doosan Bears first baseman Yang Seok-hwan (32), who was considered the “biggest name” of the Stoblig, 10 days after his free agency announcement, when all teams can sign and negotiate with him.

Yang, who has worn a Doosan uniform since the 2021 season, has hit 28, 20 and 21 home runs in each of his three years with the club. Considering the distance to the fence at his home stadium, Jamsil Stadium, he could easily hit 30 homers in other stadiums. His batting average and RBIs aren’t bad either. His defense at first base isn’t a problem either. There were three teams that needed a big first baseman. Hanwha, Lotte, and the Kia Tigers 아톰카지노 주소. Hanwha needed to bolster their batting order, while Lotte and Kia didn’t have a clear first base option.

However, Hanwha had already acquired Ahn Chi-hong and foreign-born Jonathan Peraza to form a dynamite batting lineup of Ahn-Chi-hong-Peraza-No Si-hwan-Chae Eun-sung. The batting order is well-stocked, and the addition of Yang Seok-hwan creates redundancy.

Lotte also announced their withdrawal from the outside free agent market. KIA is also reducing its interest in free agent first basemen, with Lee Woo-sung volunteering to play first base. However, KIA could show interest in Yang Seok-hwan if negotiations with internal free agent Kim Sun-bin fall through. Doosan, the original club, is also taking a wait-and-see approach. The price will only go up if there is competition, and right now, the tide is not in Yang’s favor.

There’s another reason why other clubs won’t make a move for him. This is because he is classified as a Tier A player in the free agency market. If a team acquires a player with a salary within the top three in the team and within the top 30 overall, the original team must compensate the team with a compensation player and 200% of the salary or 300% of the salary. You have to be careful.

However, the general consensus is that Yang is a hitter who is guaranteed to hit more than 20 home runs a season, so he could get a contract worth more than 5 billion won over four years. It’s not impossible that teams will see that the price isn’t going up and swoop in late.

“Man Utd attempt to sign ‘unhappy’ Werner from Leipzig…no concrete deal yet”

Manchester United prepares to sign ‘Chelsea failure’ Timo Werner (27, Leipzig).

“Manchester United are aiming to sign Chelsea failure Timo Werner,” the British newspaper Tribuna reported on June 28 (KST).

Werner, who moved to Chelsea for £53 million ($73 billion) in June 2020, has scored nearly 20 goals every season with RB Leipzig, especially in the 2019-2020 season, when he scored 28 goals in all 34 league games to finish second in the Bundesliga.

At Chelsea, however, he fell short of expectations with a lack of sharpness. In the 2020-2021 season, he scored just six goals in 35 league games, and in the 2021-2022 season, he only managed four goals in 21 league appearances. Ultimately, Werner opted to return to Leipzig in the summer of 2022.

Since moving to Leipzig, Werner has been better than he was at Chelsea. However, he is still not satisfied. In the 2022-2023 season, he scored 9 goals and 4 assists in 27 league games, and in the 2023-2024 season, he scored 2 goals in 8 league games 캡틴토토.

In this situation, one team has expressed interest in signing Werner: Manchester United. “German ‘Sky’ reporter Florian Plettenberg has reported that the Red Devils have opened talks with Leipzig about signing Werner,” Tribune reports, citing Plettenberg’s source.

“The Red Devils want to bring Werner in the winter transfer window, but discussions on specific contract terms and transfer fee have not yet taken place,” the source said. “The Red Devils signed Mason Mount from Chelsea this transfer window, but he has yet to show his potential. He is expected to miss further time due to injury.”

“Werner had a disastrous time at Chelsea before returning to Leipzig. It was hoped that things would be different after his return to Leipzig, but according to Plettenberg’s claims, Werner is unhappy in Germany,” adding that Werner is also unhappy after the transfer.

United, meanwhile, are in need of a striker. After letting Cristiano Ronaldo leave, they don’t have a clear-cut finisher in their attack. Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Alejandro Garnacho found their feet against Everton, but their goalscoring prowess is woefully lacking and new signing Rasmus Højlund has yet to settle in.

With this situation, it looks like the club is preparing to bring in Werner, who has Premier League experience.

Seo Yong-bin returns after seven years as head coach of LG Future Team

KT Future Team head coach Seo Yong-bin is making a comeback after seven years as the head coach of the LG Future Team.

According to the baseball world on July 27, LG recently reached an agreement with KT and agreed to a contract with Seo. It is said that LG selected Seo, an LG “one-club man” with a rich coaching career, as the new Future Team manager, which became vacant after the termination of the contract of former manager Hwang Byung-il.

Seo, who made his debut in the 1994 championship, retired in 2006 and joined Nippon Professional Baseball’s Junichi under LG’s first-ever ‘Coach Development Program,’ where he served as a power analyst, second team development coach, and hitting coach from 2008. In 2014, he trained again at Junichi for a year as an assistant hitting coach, then returned to LG in 2015 and served as the first team hitting coach until 2017, stepping down after the season.

From 2018, he spent three years pursuing commentary and academic studies before returning to the field at the end of 2020, when he was named head coach of KT’s Future Team. He earned his master’s degree in August 2021 during his tenure as head coach. This season, he gave way to Kim Ki-tae and spent a season as the head coach of the Futures team. 아톰카지노

LG also hired coaches Jung Soo-sung and Choi Sang-duk. Jeong Soo-sung played for Nexen, SK, and KT before spending one season with Doosan this season before failing to re-sign with the organization. Choi Choi Duck started as a Nexen developmental coach in 2010 and coached at SK until 2020.

Former LG coaches Kim Yong-ui and Choi Seung-jun will also be returning. Kim Yong-ui worked as a scout before retiring from LG in 2021 and serving as a commentator this season, while Choi Seung-jun worked for LG and SK before retiring from Hanwha in 2020 and working at a baseball academy. Choi Kyung-cheol, who was in charge of LG’s infield from 2013 to 2016, will also wear an LG uniform for the first time in eight years after recently parting ways with Lotte. Jeong Ju-hyun will make his coaching debut after retirement.

They are expected to fill the first- and second-team gaps left by coaches Lee Jong-beom, Kim Min-ho, Jo In-sung, Im Hoon and Yoon Yoseop, who parted ways with LG.

An insane 483 goals in 87 games…Superstar prospect who made his Serie A debut at age 15

Francesco Kamada made his professional debut at the age of 15 years, 260 days.

AC Milan defeated Fiorentina 1-0 in the 13th round of the 2023-24 Italian Serie A at San Siro in Milan, Italy, at 4:45 a.m. ET on Saturday. With the three points, Milan moved into third place in the league.

Theo Hernandez’s early goal gave Milan the lead, but it was the substitutions they made late in the second half that stole the show. Instead of bringing on Luka Jovic, who started the game, Milan brought on 15-year-old Kamarda. With Olivier Giroud unavailable due to a red card against Lecce, and Noah Okafor injured, Kamarda had been selected by Stefano Pioli to fill a gap in the attacking lineup.

Camarda was born in 2008 and made his Serie A debut at the age of 15 years and 260 days. It’s been eight years since he joined the Milan youth team in 2015. With this appearance, he broke the record set by Milan legend Paolo Maldini, who made his debut for the club at the age of 16 years and 6 months.

Camarda was already a famous player. It was his youth record that made him famous. Since joining the Milan youth team, he has played 87 games and scored an unbelievable 483 goals. And that’s just from 2017 to 2020.

At the age of 15, he was also called up to the Italian U-17 national team in January, where he played six games and scored four goals. With a youth record reminiscent of Lionel Messi’s, and a month and a half with the age-group national team as well as the club, fans have high hopes for Camarda. With Milan’s forward line currently dealing with injuries and suspensions, he’s expected to get plenty of opportunities in the future 토토사이트.

Camarda has also been compared to Michael Owen in terms of the amount of attention he has received at a young age. Owen made his debut for Liverpool as a teenager and quickly established himself as the club’s main striker, and he went on to win the Ballon d’Or at the age of 22 for his club and national team performances. Carmara’s performance against Fiorentina has put him on the map.

FA compensation player→LG miserable end, ‘0’ first team games in 5 years, finally released.

LG Twins’ ‘unfortunate closer’ Lim Jung-woo (32) has been placed on the disabled list.

LG announced the players who were removed from the disabled list on the 25th. Pitchers Song Eun-beom Lee Chan-hyuk Kim Tae-hyung (left) Sung Jae-hyun Lim Jung-woo, infielders Seo Geon-chang Jeong Joo-hyun Kim Sung-hyeop Choi Hyun-joon, and outfielders Lee Ik-woong Choi Min-chang Lee Chul-min were notified of their release. Jeong announced his intention to retire.

Lim Jung-woo is a pitcher who once served as LG’s closer. He shined as a closer, but after injuries and surgeries, he never recovered and was released. He hasn’t made a first-team appearance in the last five years.

Lim was drafted by SK in the fourth round (26th overall) of the 2011 KBO Draft. He appeared in four games (5⅔ innings of scoreless relief) for SK in his rookie year in 2011 before moving to LG the following year. After the 2011 season, SK acquired free agent Jo In-sung, and LG designated prospect pitcher Lim Jung-woo as compensation for Jo’s free agency.

After moving to LG, Lim primarily pitched out of the bullpen and briefly filled in as the fifth starter in 2014. He pitched the first month of 2015 as a starter before returning to the bullpen to pitch 109 innings.

2016 was a career-high season. After gaining experience in the bullpen through 2015, Lim took over the closing duties in 2016. He appeared in 67 games, posting a 3-8 record with 28 saves and a 3.82 ERA. He finished second in saves behind Kim Se-hyun (then of Nexen, 36 saves).

After a stellar 2016 season, Lim was named to the World Baseball Classic (WBC) roster in March 2017. But it was Hosadama. He suffered a shoulder injury during a training camp in Okinawa, Japan, and was eventually dropped from the squad. He spent the first half of the year rehabbing and returned to the first team in August, posting a 2.70 ERA in 17 games (16⅔ innings) with one hold. Things didn’t go so well after that.

He had some personal issues leading up to the 2018 season and was sidelined with an elbow injury after two appearances in late March, shortly after the start of the season. He underwent elbow ligament reconstruction and bone chip removal surgery. He used the rehabilitation period to enlist in the army as a social worker in January 2019, and returned from military service in November 2020.

However, even after his discharge, there was a long hiatus due to residual injuries and rehabilitation before he was able to take the mound. He didn’t pitch a game for either the first or second team in 2021. He pitched four games in exhibition games before disappearing for the 2022 season. He didn’t pitch for the second team until September due to injury. In September 2022, he pitched three scoreless innings in three Futures League games. 카지노사이트

He tried to bounce back this year, but it didn’t work out. He didn’t make it back to the first team this year, and his pitch count in the Futures League was ‘0’. Lim’s last appearance in the first team was on March 27, 2018, against Nexen, where he was known for his fastball that reached 150 km/h and a curveball with a big drop. It would be nearly six years since he took the mound for the first team. He pitched three games in the second team during that time. After 2069 days, he was placed on the disabled list.

Lim’s 28 saves in 2016 were the most in LG closers’ history, behind Kim Yong-soo (30 saves in 1994, 35 saves in 1995), Lee Sang-hoon (37 saves in 1997, 30 saves in 2003), Woo Kyu-min (30 saves in 2007), and Bong Joong-geun (38 saves in 2013, 30 saves in 2014). Ko Woo-seok then set the club record with 42 saves in 2022, following 35 saves in 2019 and 30 saves in 2021.

Lim shined as a closer in 2016, but shoulder and elbow injuries took their toll.

Hanwha Life’s ‘Peanut’ to return to parent team… 2024 Roster Finalized

Hanwha Life has put the final piece of the roster puzzle together with veteran jungler Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, who joins the team to help them challenge for the title in 2024.

On April 24, Hanwha Life announced the signing of “Peanut” Han Wang-ho on its official social media accounts. “Please look forward to the new stories we will create together with ‘Peanut’ Han Wang-ho, who has a lot of experience and outstanding skills,” the company said. 토토사이트

Han began his professional career with Najin in 2015, but his career really began to blossom in 2016 when he moved to Rocks (now Hanwha Life). Synonymously known as the ‘predatory jungler’, Han went on to win three LCK titles and one international Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) before moving to the Chinese LPL in 2020.

After an up-and-down 2019, Han Wang-ho returned to China in 2021 and established himself as a “complete jungler”. After moving to Genji and winning three consecutive LCK championships, Han Wang-ho returned to his glory days and is now back in the hunt for trophies with his hometown team, Hanwha Life.

With his addition, the team has a strong lineup of Choi “Doran” Hyun-joon, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, Kim “Zeca” Gun-woo, Park “Viper” Do-hyun, and Yoo “Delight” Hwan-joong. It will be interesting to see if “The Winning Contractor” can bring the trophy to Hanwha Life.

“Messi, we are waiting for you!” Drug dealer shot and threatened Messi’s family

The family of the “God of Soccer” Lionel Messi (36, Inter Miami) is being threatened by drug dealers.

The family of Messi’s wife, Antonella, in Argentina has been attacked by thugs for the second time this year, according to a report by Argentine newspaper Ole.

According to police reports, robbers opened fire on the family’s car and broke the windows. The robbers then reportedly broke in and stole 8 million Argentine pesos (about $29.22 million) in cash before fleeing. 카지노사이트

Luckily, the Messi family was unharmed, with only minor scratches. However, they were reportedly traumatized.

This is not the first time Messi’s family has been attacked. In March, a drug dealer fired 14 shots and left a note at a supermarket run by the Antonella family.

They left a threatening note saying, “Messi, we are waiting for you. We are drug dealers and we will not be nice to you,” the threatening note read. It was a warning that Messi’s family knew exactly what they were doing.

Messi has yet to comment on the incident. Messi, who plays in the United States, must be under a lot of pressure.
