The 29-year-old Frenchman joined the Gunners from Auxerre in January 2006 but saw his progress halted by a horrific broken ankle following a tackle by Sunderland’s Dan Smith at the Stadium of Light in May at the end of that first campaign. Despite making several comeback attempts Diaby continued to be hit by a string of fitness issues, the latest being a cruciate knee injury which sidelined him for 14 months, after which he made only one appearance last season, in the Capital One Cup tie against Southampton on September 23. While clubs are required to list those players who are set to be out of contract after the submission deadline of late May, the Premier League stress it “should not be seen as definitive for players leaving their club.” Manager Arsene Wenger had long defended Diaby, a player he viewed as a great asset when at his peak. Speaking in November 2014, he said: “Diaby is a player that I have an enormous amount of respect for. Every time he comes back he has to start from zero with another injury. “He is not a fragile player. He was the victim of an assassin’s tackle that went unpunished.” Wenger later stressed: “If Diaby is fully fit, he will have a new deal at Arsenal.” However, by April, the Gunners boss indicated the situation was perhaps not as straightforward despite Diaby having started to play for the Under-21s to build up match sharpness. “I had a chat with him and told him how I can envisage the future,” Wenger said. “Of course he understands completely that he has to perform and to show that he can be present on a consistent way. I will see where we go from there.” Japan midfielder Ryo Miyaichi, signed in January 2011 but spent several spells out on loan, is another player noted whose future is set away from the Emirates Stadium. Wenger indicated there would have to be some movement out of the squad before he looked to strengthen, with the futures of forwards Lukas Podolski, Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell all needing to be resolved one way or another. Goalkeeper Petr Cech continues to be linked with a summer move from Chelsea, should owner Roman Abramovich sanction the move. Elsewhere, midfielder Jack Wilshere could face a wait to learn the outcome of his misconduct charge following anti-Tottenham chants during the FA Cup victory parade. The deadline for a response is 6pm on Monday. It is understood the player and club are not likely to contest the charge. However, w hether or not Wilshere – currently away on international duty with England – requests a personal hearing remains to be seen. Either way the matter will be dealt with by the FA’s independent disciplinary committee, which once it sits will decide whether to impose the expected financial penalty or issue a suspension. Press Association Sport understands because the incident did not happen on the pitch and therefore does not fall under the usual ‘Fast Track’ process, while also taking into account being out of regular season, no specific time frame would be in place. The matter, though, will be resolved ahead of the new domestic campaign, which sees Arsenal take on Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Community Shield at Wembley on August 2. Press Association Abou Diaby is set to leave Arsenal after the injury-plagued midfielder was named on the release list by the Barclays Premier League.
Scott Israel, the former Broward Sheriff who is running again to reclaim that position, is hospitalized with COVID-19.Israel, 64, tested positive Tuesday night.He is currently in the hospital undergoing an evaluation, and he confirmed that he will continue with his campaign while quarantined.In a news statement Israel said:“After experiencing symptoms over the past several days and at the urging of family and friends, I decided to take another coronavirus test. This time, unfortunately, the test was positive,”… “Like most of you, I took precautions, followed the advice of health experts, wore a mask in public, washed my hands regularly and observed social distancing. Yet, despite this vigilance, I have contracted the virus. My outlook is positive, my faith is strong, and I rest in the strong support of loving family, friends and colleagues.”He’s running to unseat Sheriff Gregory Tony, who was installed by Gov. Ron DeSantis to lead the Broward Sheriff’s Office in January 2019 after the governor removed Israel in the fallout of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shootings.They’re both considered frontrunners on the ballot for the Democratic primary on Aug. 18 despite both facing a vote of no-confidence from their deputies.
In a story of their season, Los Rojiblancos had lacked inspiration in the final third before Griezmann ended his eight-game goal drought in spectacular fashion by acrobatically thrashing home Angel Correa’s cross 21 minutes from time.Griezmann had been jeered by some Atletico supporters when he was substituted in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Real Madrid.However, he was backed throughout as his name was chanted before kick-off.“I think the night started well with the support from the fans,” added Simeone.“We fed off that positive energy, we found ourselves again and we found an Antoine who is a special player, and got back to playing a great match.”Griezmann then turned provider with a fine through ball for Gameiro to round Alisson in the Roma goal and slot into an empty net five minutes from time.“We are all behind him because scoring goals like that, he makes us win games,” said Gameiro.“I think he is a little relieved, like everyone else.”Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco admitted Atletico were deserving winners on the night, but insisted he would have been delighted with having Roma’s fate in their own hands going into the final game when they were handed a tough draw back in August.“We would all have signed up for having to win our last game at home to Qarabag to go through,” said Di Francesco.“We have to assume that responsibility. Atletico’s hopes are less than ours because they don’t depend just on themselves.”Share on: WhatsApp “There is still one game to go and, until the 90 minutes are over, we can’t think negatively,” said Simeone.“I always have confidence because I know my players and they will give their maximum until the situation leaves us with no chance.”Chelsea swept aside 10-man Qarabag 4-0 in Baku on Wednesday to secure their place in the knockout phase and move ahead of Roma into pole position to win the group.However, having been held twice by the Azerbaijani champions, Simeone believes they can cause an upset in the Italian capital.“You can’t underestimate anyone,” added Simeone.“Football is marvellous. Sometimes the ball wants to go in and sometimes not.“Today Chelsea attacked once in the first half and it was a penalty and a sending-off.”Yet, even if progress to the last 16 for a fifth consecutive season is beyond them, Atletico did end a five-match winless streak at their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium and guarantee at least a place in the Europa League with a well-deserved victory over the Italians. Atletico Madrid players celebrate, they beat Roma 2-0 on WednesdayMadrid, Spain | AFP | Diego Simeone refused to be downhearted by Atletico Madrid’s slim chances of making the Champions League last 16 after Antoine Griezmann returned to form with a stunning overhead kick and assist for Kevin Gameiro to beat Roma 2-0 on Wednesday.Twice finalists in the past four seasons, Simeone’s men still need a minor miracle in the final two games in Group C on December 5 to progress as Atletico need to win away to Chelsea and hope Roma drop points at home to Qarabag.

G. Higuaín ‘I’d pick Higuain over Kane!’ – Allegri thinks Juventus star is the better striker Harry West Last updated 1 year ago 16:15 2/13/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Harry Kane Tottenham Hotspur Juventus Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur UEFA Champions League Videos The Tottenham forward has been in sublime form in the 2017-18 campaign but Juve’s head coach would not swap him for the Argentine Massimiliano Allegri says he would always choose Gonzalo Higuain over Harry Kane as Juventus prepare to face Tottenham in the last 16 of the Champions League.Juve host Tuesday’s first leg at Allianz Stadium against a Spurs team that confounded many expectations by winning Group H ahead of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.Kane comes into the meeting in red-hot form, with eight goals in his last seven appearances, while Higuain is enjoying a similarly prolific sequence, boasting six strikes from four matches.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Much has been made of the two strikers going head-to-head in this tie, but Allegri was unequivocal in his response over whom he felt was the better player.”What a question! Higuain, of course!” he said with a smile at Monday’s media conference.”Given the choice between Higuain and Kane, I would still pick Pipita as my number nine, even if Kane is a top-class striker.”Higuain will shoulder an extra burden after it was confirmed Paulo Dybala (hamstring) would miss out, while Blaise Matuidi (thigh) is also unavailable for the opening leg, and Allegri was giving little away as to who would come in for the Frenchman.”Of course someone will replace him because we have to play 11, but it’ll be someone with different characteristics,” Allegri said. | @OfficialAllegri : “The tie is 180 minutes long. It’s an evenly balanced contest and we need to approach it with the highest level of concentration.” #JuveTOT #UCL pic.twitter.com/7eFpDw1opW — JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) February 12, 2018 “We’ll try of course to play a match according to the players and specific skills and features they have. We know we have 180 minutes to play, we know the weaknesses Tottenham have and also their qualities.”[Claudio] Marchisio convinced me and [Rodrigo] Bentancur also very much convinced me. There’s also [Stefano] Sturaro who can play in Matuidi’s role, and he’s probably the one most similar to Matuidi.”If not we’ll have to change formation or at least fill the roles with players with different characteristics. A lot depends on the players.”Tomorrow we’ll have to play an excellent match from a tactical point of view, because otherwise if we just focus on the physical aspect we could suffer a lot.”
