Barkley full of praise for Sarri’s coaching methods

[Picture: Adam Davy/PA Wire]Ross Barkley attributes his improvement at Chelsea to Maurizio Sarri’s coaching, which he hopes will result in an England recall.AdChoices广告The 24-year-old joined Chelsea last January from Everton, where he broke through under Roberto Martinez and was a squad member under Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.Barkley says he is benefiting from Sarri’s attention to detail, the 59-year-old former banker meticulous in his approach and preparation.And Barkley has suggested young players breaking into Premier League first teams are not coached as much as perhaps they should be.“Over the years I haven’t really been coached much,” he said.“When you go through the youth system, you’re always going in to do analysis work, you’re looking at every way of improving and your coaches are always on top of you.“And once you go into the first team it can change, because game to game managers are focusing on weekly results, not player development.“That’s just the way it can go. Some players are more fortunate than others to have coaches fully focused on improvement.“I believe that if I did have that type of approach from a coach when I was younger then maybe I would have improved a lot more.“Where I am right now is where I believe I should be.”Barkley missed out on a place in England’s World Cup squad, but was on Wednesday hopeful of a recall under Gareth Southgate.The England boss was set to announce his squad for the matches with Croatia and Spain on Thursday afternoon.Barkley said: “I’m playing a big role in the side at the minute and I believe my performances show I’m capable of being in the England squad, hopefully.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

‘Dark Destroyer’ Benn aims for comeback 23 years after last fight

first_img(Reuters) – Britain’s 55-year-old Nigel Benn is set to announce his comeback to boxing 23 years after his last professional fight, his promoter was quoted as saying yesterday. “I wouldn’t support Nigel if I didn’t believe he was fit to box,’ Mark Peters told the BBC.Benn is scheduled to attend a news conference in London on Thursday, with British media reporting he would announce a Nov. 23 fight in Birmingham against 40-year-old Cameroon-born Sakio Bika, a former WBC super-middleweight champion.Benn held the WBO middleweight title in 1990 and also the WBC super-middleweight title from 1992-96. His last fight was in November 1996 when he lost to Irishman Steve Collins. The Daily Telegraph reported that the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoc) refused to grant Benn a licence, with the fight to be sanctioned by the British and Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA).“We were approached by Nigel Benn a few months ago inquiring whether we would grant him a licence, but he was told that we would not consider it, given his age and how long he has been away from the sport,” the Telegraph quoted BBBoC general secretary Robert Smith as saying.Benn, nicknamed ‘The Dark Destroyer’, has a 42-5-1 record, including 35 wins by KO.last_img read more

A look at every North Korean missile test this year

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — On Tuesday night, North Korea launched a KN-15 missile from its eastern coast into the Sea of Japan, marking the fourth missile test conducted by the North Korean regime this year alone.Here’s what to know about each of those tests:Feb. 12In February, North Korea successfully tested a land-based version of a KN-11 missile, a solid-fuel rocket, which traveled 310 miles into the Sea of Japan.Gen. John Hyten, the commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told a congressional panel Tuesday that the February launch marked a significant advancement for North Korea because it was its first successful solid-fueled missile fired from a mobile launcher.Mobile-launched missiles are harder to track and can be fired at short notice.Hyten labeled the launch of the KN-11 missile as “a major advancement” by North Korea because it was “a new solid medium range ballistic missile off a new transporter erector launcher.”The February launch occurred as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida over the weekend.Photos taken by the club’s patrons and later posted on Facebook captured Japanese and U.S. officials responding in real-time to the incident, sparking criticism about why such important meetings were not conducted in a more secure location.March 6In early March, North Korea launched five medium-range Scud-type missiles. Four traveled more than 600 miles, the upper limit of their range, into the Sea of Japan. The fifth took off, but later crashed.Three missiles landed in waters in Japan’s economic exclusion zone, which extends 200 miles from its shoreline.Shortly after this test occurred, the U.S. delivered the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system to South Korea, a process which the U.S. started working on with its ally after the flurry of North Korean missile tests in 2016.THAAD is a missile defense shield designed to intercept short and medium range missiles.March 21Later in the month, North Korea tested a mobile-launched missile which exploded “within seconds of launch,” according to U.S. Pacific Command.The launch was near Kalma in eastern Wonsan province, where North Korea previously attempted to test its mobile-launched Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile. Last year, North Korea test-fired eight Musudan rockets, but only one was considered a success.U.S. officials have not identified what type of missile was tested on March 21 since it exploded so soon after launch.April 4Tuesday’s KN-15 missile launch comes just days before Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago, during which North Korea is expected to be a major point of discussion.“Yes, we will talk about North Korea,” Trump told the Financial Times over the weekend. “And China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t. And if they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.”According to the FT, Trump said the U.S. could “totally” handle the situation in North Korea without assistance from the Chinese, but he declined to go into specifics.U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson released a terse statement following Tuesday’s test, saying, “North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more
