Liverpool boss Klopp explains holding back Naby Keitaby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained holding back Naby Keita in recent games.Klopp admits the midfielder should be doing better.He said, “With Naby, and I spoke to him, everything is fine and I am completely happy. Could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes. Is he exactly the player [he was] in his best time at Leipzig? No, but he’s still adapting, that’s how it is. “But everybody saw it how brilliant he played in the first part [of the season]. Tottenham was a fantastic game of him without thinking too much, and then we made a change I think around the PSG game and the boys have to deal with it. Then a little injury here, a little injury there and it was kind of a little setback.”But he is a fantastic player and I’m really happy to have him here. It’s so good and I am really looking forward to our common future because see if you see it every day, wow, there is so much to come and so much influence he can have on each game, so that’s all good. “No, there was no reason [for him not playing recently], just because other boys were in good shape as well. It was a bit about positioning, a bit about system and all that stuff. That’s how football decisions are. There is really, really no doubt about the boy, he is an outstanding player.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Twitter/@MattPark1Tonight’s game at the Carrier Dome between Syracuse and Virginia is going to be all about senior center Rakeem Christmas. With the Orange ineligible for the post-season, Christmas’ final home game is a major event in Central New York, and we bet there will be plenty of tributes to Syracuse’s lone senior. We’ve already shared this spectacular snowman on the Syracuse campus, now Christmas’ teammate and longtime friend Trevor Cooney is paying homage to the center in the Dome during [email protected] out early modeling shooting shirt tribute to @R_Xmas25 on Senior Night. And new shorts to go with… pic.twitter.com/ZiFlIKvL9D— Matt Park (@MattPark1) March 2, 2015Based on Matt Park’s tweet, the rest of the team may also be wearing these for warm-ups. This is a very cool tribute to a player who has meant everything to his team during what has been a very trying season for the Orange.
colin cowherd says nebraska beats iowaIowa, at 10-0, has two games remaining on its regular season schedule before potentially getting a shot at the Big Ten East champion in the league’s title game. The first, this Saturday, is a home contest against 2-8 Purdue. The second, next Friday, is at Nebraska – a 5-6 team that needs a victory to become bowl eligible.Fox Sports radio host Colin Cowherd thinks the Hawkeyes, who he calls a “fraud”, will be upset by the Cornhuskers in their final regular season game. In short, he thinks that Nebraska will end Iowa’s dream of a College Football Playoff berth.Cowherd has been trashing the Hawkeyes for their “weak” schedule all season, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. Iowa will just need to keep winning to keep silencing critics.
