Is this okay? ‘Girlfriend assault’ striker joins Man U training, could play Champions League in midweek

Manchester United (Man Utd) forward Anthony Martial, who was recently investigated for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, has returned to training.

“Anthony turned up at United’s Carrington training ground and took part in training,” British media outlet The Sun reported on Tuesday.

Anthony has been the center of controversy off the field. He was investigated by police for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend twice.

The victim, his ex-girlfriend Cabriela Cavallin, alleged that he headbutted and punched her in a hotel room. She provided evidence of Anthony’s threats and assaults. Among the evidence was a photo showing her finger injured by a glass thrown by Anthony.

“I have never attacked any woman,” he told local media on September 9, breaking down in tears. 메이저놀이터 He emphasized that Kavalin had fabricated the public conversation.

United explored several options as the situation escalated, including suspending him, but eventually reinstated him to team training. The allegations are still unclear. Furthermore, the club’s recent rash of injuries has left them severely short-handed.

It is likely that Anthony will be available for the 2023/2024 UEFA Champions League group stage second leg against Galatasaray on April 4.

Kabalin’s camp was understandably upset by the news that Anthony was training with the team. “Anthony is under investigation by the Brazilian and English authorities and should be in court, not on the training field,” Kabalin said, criticizing United’s decision.

‘Autumn Legend’ PS rushes into MLB…Toronto’s Ryu Hyun-jin to be included in roster

After a 162-game regular season, Major League Baseball enters the postseason. Only 12 of the 30 teams survived the regular season to compete for the World Series title.

The 2023 Major League Baseball regular season effectively ended on April 2. With a suspended game between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets on the 3rd, the postseason is already set.

In the National League, the Atlanta Braves (East), Los Angeles Dodgers (West), and Milwaukee Brewers (Central) punched their tickets to the postseason, along with the Philadelphia Phillies, Miami Marlins, and Arizona Diamondbacks (plus wild cards).

In the American League, the Baltimore Orioles (East), Minnesota Twins (Central), Houston Astros (West) and Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays (plus wild card) will play “fall baseball.

The postseason begins in earnest on April 4. The district winners, Minnesota and Milwaukee, and the wild card teams will play a best-of-three wild-card series to determine who advances to the division series.

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) is the only South Korean player to play fall baseball. After a lengthy rehabilitation following elbow surgery last year, he returned to the team in August. His team, Toronto, is also in the wild card hunt after a hard-fought battle.

They will face Central Division winner Minnesota in the wild card game. Minnesota won the Central Division in a crowded field of underdogs and had a lower regular-season winning percentage (87-75-0.537) than Toronto (89-73-0.549), giving Toronto the edge.

If Toronto does make it through the Wild Card Series, they will meet defending champion Houston in the Division Series. The Astros, who won the World Series last year, have been on a tear since the middle of the season and have claimed the West crown.

However, Ryu Hyun-jin will not be utilized much in the postseason. After a lengthy rehabilitation after surgery, he performed well but struggled to go the distance. He also pitched two games in a row against Tampa Bay at the end of the season, with poor results.

Toronto is expected to use a four-man starting rotation of Kevin Gausman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi in the postseason. Hyun-jin Ryu said he doesn’t mind the position, saying, “I’ll do whatever the team wants me to do, whether it’s starting or bullpen.” 토토사이트

It’s also unclear if he’ll make the postseason roster. projected Toronto’s 26-man roster for the day, and Ryu was one of the players they projected to miss. It’s not going to be easy for him to make the starting four, or to suddenly switch to the bullpen.

Ryu is a free agent after this season, and it’s possible that he won’t be able to pitch in a Toronto uniform for much longer.

‘Murderous tackle + staff handkerchief threat’ North Korea scares Japan, “thankful it ended without injury”

North Korea has become one of the worst villains of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games with a string of bad behavior. Opponents of the DPRK are hoping to avoid getting hurt rather than win.

North Korea fell 1-2 to Japan in the men’s soccer quarterfinals of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Xiaoshan Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on Monday (Aug. 1), failing to advance to the quarterfinals.

The game was characterized by North Korea’s rough play and lack of manners. At every opportunity, the North Koreans made rough tackles on Japanese players, including some close calls that could have resulted in serious injuries.

North Korea’s rough play paid dearly. In the 35th minute of the second half, the North Korean goalkeeper knocked over a Japanese player trying to break through. It was a moment that sealed the 1-2 defeat.

After the game ended in defeat, North Korea’s players gathered in a group to protest the referee. They didn’t just protest, they pushed and threatened. Eventually, stadium competition staff jumped in and separated the referee from the players.

There was more. North Korea’s Kim Yoo-sung demanded water from a Japanese staff member who came in to treat an injured player during the match, and then made a hand gesture. The referee gave Kim a warning. 토토사이트

Japanese netizens reacted with disbelief on One commented, “It’s unbelievable for a soccer game, and it’s abnormal to see such rough tackles, pressure, and threats. They have no hesitation in hurting Japanese players,” “It’s a good thing no one got hurt in this game,” “This is an international embarrassment. Shame on you,” and continued to criticize North Korea.

North Korea could face disciplinary action from Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) for threats made to the referee during the game.

‘186.2 billion’ striker almost joined Aston Villa… but “didn’t want to return to the Premier League”

João Felix, 23, almost came back to the Premier League. But his choice was Barcelona.

“Aston Villa agreed to sign Felix on loan, but he rejected a return to the Premier League,” British outlet CutOffside reported on Monday.

“Felix did not want to play for Atletico Madrid. “Aston Villa wanted Felix, but he only wanted to move to Barcelona,” the report continued, “after spending the second half of last season at Chelsea. We finalized the loan move on deadline day.”

Atletico Madrid legend Paulo Putre revealed that he had discussed the future with Felix’s agent, Jorge Mendes. “At the beginning of July, when there was an agreement between Atletico Madrid and Aston Villa, Felix’s side said no,” Putre told Spanish outlet Cadena Ser.

Felix has been touted as the next Cristiano Ronaldo since he came through the youth ranks at Benfica in Portugal.

He made his debut for Benfica’s first team in the 2018-19 season, and in July 2019, he donned an Atletico Madrid shirt. At the time, his transfer fee amounted to £113 million, the highest in Atletico Madrid’s history.

However, he did not prove to be worth his price tag. In 131 total appearances, he scored 34 goals and provided 18 assists. This season, he was even less involved. He has five goals and three assists in 20 games, but only 11 of them have been starts. In La Liga, he has started just seven games. An uneasy relationship with coach Diego Simeone prevented him from getting a chance.

He eventually moved to Chelsea in the January transfer window. He scored four goals in 20 games after his move. He started 11 of their 16 Premier League games, showing his influence in the team. Despite Chelsea’s dip in form, Felix is reportedly happy with his post-transfer life. He expressed his desire to stay at Chelsea next season.

However, Chelsea were struggling financially. They couldn’t afford to pay Felix, especially with new manager Mauricio Pochettino at the helm, 토토사이트 and they lost interest in him.

Felix’s first priority was to leave Atletico Madrid. Aston Villa were interested, but Felix’s dream club, Barcelona, was his destination. After a season-long loan, Felix has scored three goals and provided two assists in six games in a Barcelona shirt.

Doosan’s dominance in the fall, now overtaking rivals for third place…”We were united in front of a full house”

Doosan’s form in the fall is frightening. The team reignited the third-place fight by sweeping rival LG, which was 2-9 this season.

The Doosan Bears won the 13th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the LG Twins 3-1 at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Tuesday. Fourth-place Doosan extended its winning streak to two games against rival LG and closed the gap on third-place NC to 1.5 games. They are 69 wins, 2 ties, and 60 losses on the season.

Starter Kim Dong-joo pitched six innings of two-hit ball (one homer) with two walks and two strikeouts to earn his third win of the season (five) in about four months, his first since May 12 against KIA in Jamsil. He was followed by Kim Myung-shin, Kim Kang-ryul and Jeong Chul-won, with Jeong earning his 12th save of the season. The offense was highlighted by Yang Seok-hwan’s tying solo home run in the fourth inning and Kim Jae-ho’s wedge double in the eighth.

Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop said after the game, “Starting pitcher Kim Dong-ju did a great job in a high-pressure game. “Yang Seok-hwan hit a home run at a crucial moment, and when we needed an extra run in the ninth inning, the best player in the team, Kim Jae-ho, came through,” said Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop after the win. 토토사이트

He also thanked the fans who filled the 23,750-seat stadium. “The players were united today in front of a full house. Thank you to the fans,” Lee said sincerely.

Doosan will look to sweep the three-game series on October 1 with ace Raul Alcantara. LG will call on Lee Ji-gang.

‘Hangawi Joljeon Disaster’ Jeonbuk falls to Daegu at Anbang, losing 1-3!

Jeonbuk Hyundai fell short against Daegu FC at home.

Jeonbuk fell to a 1-3 defeat against Daegu in the 32nd round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Jeonbuk’s Final B fears became a reality as they fell to their knees with a loss rather than a win against Daegu.

Daegu, on the other hand, earned a valuable three points against Jeonbuk, giving them a green light to advance to Final A.

Jeonbuk deployed a 5-4-1 formation. Gustavo formed the front line, with Moon Sun-min, Meng Seong-woong, Boateng, and Han Kyowon in the second line. Jung Woo-jae, Koo Ja-ryong, Petrasek, Hong Jeong-ho, and Ahn Hyun-beom formed the defense, with Jung Min-ki in goal.

Daegu went with a 3-4-3 formation. Edgar, Vasellus, and Ko Jae-hyun led the attack, while Hong Chul, Lee Jin-yong, Park Se-jin, and Jang Sung-won formed the midfield. The defense was made up of Cho Jin-woo, Hong Jung-woon, and Kim Jin-hyuk, while Choi Young-eun wore the goalkeeping gloves.

The balance of the game was broken early on by the away team, Daegu. Just 14 seconds in, Ko Jae-hyun scored the first goal with a right-footed shot after receiving a pass from Edgar. They capitalized on the momentum and widened the gap with another goal. In the seventh minute of the first half, a deflected shot by Vaselus found the back of the net and gave Jeonbuk a 2-0 lead.

After being down by two goals, Jeonbuk fought back. In the 18th minute, Gustavo connected with a cross from Jung Woo-jae, but it went wide of the goal. Then, in the 24th minute, they opened the scoring. After Han Kyo-won’s shot hit the post and flowed into a second ball, Boateng struck a simple mid-range shot into Daegu’s goal to keep the chase alive.

Daegu pulled out their substitutions. In the 30th minute, they took off Vassellus and brought on Lee Geun-ho for a tactical change. Jeonbuk continued to pull the reins. In the 37th minute, they had a chance. Ahn Hyun-beom connected with a left-footed shot from the edge of the box, but he put his head down as it went wide of the goal. In the 39th minute, Gustavo continued to knock on Daegu’s door with a rebounded shot.

Jeonbuk continued to attack. They struggled to find an equalizer. In the 40th minute, Moon Sun-min unleashed a winding kick from near the arc, but it went wide of the goal. The score remained 1-2 at halftime. 스포츠토토

Jeonbuk came out aggressively in the second half. In the eighth minute of the second half, Petrasek’s header hit the post, and on the ensuing second ball, Ahn Hyun-beom’s shot went just wide of the goal.

“Hwang will make a difference” British journalist gives ‘thumbs up’ to ‘4 goals in 7 games’ Hwang Hee-chan

He is becoming the team’s ace.

“Journalist Dean Jones has named Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton) as the player who will transform Wolverhampton,” said British media outlet Give Me Sports on Sept. 29 (KST).

Hwang has been in superb form this season. He has scored three goals in six Premier League games. This is certainly a departure from his previous streak, given that the most goals he has scored in a season since joining Wolverhampton is five. He also scored the opening goal against Ipswich Town in the 2023-24 English Carabao Cup on July 27.

That’s four goals in seven games in all competitions. After utilizing Hwang as a substitute at the start of the season, head coach Gary O’Neill has begun to actively use him as a starter.

However, the situation at Wolverhampton is quite the opposite. They are 16th in the Premier League with one win, one draw, and four losses. To make matters worse for Hwang, Wolverhampton have lost every game he’s scored in. They’re in such a bad way that they just suffered a 2-3 shock loss to lowly Ipswich Town.

In truth, Wolverhampton’s struggles were somewhat predictable. Before the start of the season, manager Julen Lopetegui abruptly left the club after falling out with the club. O’Neill took over in a hurry, but he hasn’t really stabilized the team yet.

He sold several key players, including Hubin Neves and Matheus Nunes. Meanwhile, he’s struggled to find solid replacements.

Dean Jones believes that Wolverhampton are currently too reliant on Pedro Neto. Neto has one goal and four assists this season. Here, Jones points to Hwang Hee-chan as a player who could help solve Wolverhampton’s reliance on Neto. He gave the player a thumbs up, saying he could make a difference at the Molineux Stadium in the future. 먹튀검증

Seattle pulls off dramatic upset…Toronto Magic No. 2 ‘in place’

The Seattle Mariners came from behind to win in dramatic fashion.

The Mariners won a 3-2 home game against the Texas Rangers at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, on Monday night.

It was a dramatic win. Trailing 1-2 heading into the top of the ninth inning, the Mariners took advantage of a faltering Aroldis Chapman to close out the game.

Carl Lally and Dylan Moore led off with back-to-back singles and a wild pitch put runners on second and third.
Chapman walked Ty Prance to load the bases before eventually retiring the side.

Back-to-back walks to Mike Ford and Josh Rojas against reliever Jonathan Hernandez deepened the deficit, but J.P. Crawford ended the game in dramatic fashion with a line drive to left field to plate both runners.

It was Crawford’s fourth career game-winning hit. It was also his first game-winning hit with the team trailing.

The outcome of the game also had implications for the Toronto Blue Jays across the continent.

Toronto’s magic number to clinch a postseason berth remained at two.

They still have one more day to clinch a postseason spot on the 30th. First, they need to beat the Tampa Bay Rays outright.

After that, they’ll have to wait for the results from across the continent. If Seattle loses to Texas, or if the Houston Astros lose to the Arizona Diamondbacks, they’re in.

A Houston loss would clinch it, as it would give them a two-game lead over the Astros with two games left. Toronto has the better head-to-head record against Houston, so they will advance in the event of a tie.

Toronto players have been up until the wee hours of the morning in some cases, watching games in the West and then popping the champagne caps. 토토사이트

One way or another, a postseason berth is precious. “I don’t care what form it takes,” head coach John Schneider said.

‘Angry water bottle basher’ China says coach also ‘temperamental’, keyDF exit “due to overwork”

Chinese national team head coach Dejan Durjevic, who will take on South Korea in the quarterfinals of the Asian Games, has expressed his frustration with the tight schedule.

“We played four matches in eight days,” Durjevic said after China’s 1-0 win over Qatar in the round of 16 at the Hangzhou Asian Games at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang Province on Sunday. According to international rules, a maximum of three matches are allowed in seven days,” he criticized. South Korea also played four games in eight days from Sept. 19 to 27, including three group matches and the round of 16.

Serbian coach Durdevic also blamed “overwork” for the sending off of key defender Jang Sun-roong for a collision with an opponent just before the end of the second half. Zhang had started all four games. “When players are overworked, their body and brain function decreases, which affects their ability to communicate and make judgments, which means their reaction time slows down and their decision-making becomes inaccurate,” Durjevic said in a press conference, according to China’s

In fact, later in the day, when things didn’t go his way, Dudevic threw a water bottle out of his hand to show his anger. 레모나토토 It seems that Chinese players and foreign coaches are not immune to getting upset.

China’s squad is not in the best shape ahead of their quarterfinal match against South Korea next month. Chinese media reported that Zhang Sunrong is out through suspension, forcing Zhu Chenjie, who is currently recovering from injury, to play. Midfielder Gao Tian is out through accumulation.

After losing two key players, Dudevic said, “We have 22 players in the team. I can replace the absentees with other players. It doesn’t affect my formation,” he said. “I hope the injured players will return,” he said, admitting that it’s not easy to pick a lineup at the moment.

South Korea and China split a pair of friendlies in June in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China. At the time, China’s rough play resulted in injuries to Korean players such as Uhm Won-sang. “The June match is already in the past. “Korea is very strong,” he said, adding, “We will respect them in the press conference, but when we go out on the field, we will try to win. Dudevic plans to use a 4-2-3-1 formation, similar to the last four games.

More than 38,000 fans attended the last match between China and Qatar. An even larger crowd is expected to chant “chayo” (fighting).

“In the end, it’s all about selection against Taiwan” Liu Zhong-ilho’s arrival in Hangzhou is the last ‘worry’ for him

The baseball team has arrived in Hangzhou in search of a fourth straight Asian Games gold medal. The team’s composition has changed. You have to pick the ‘best’ with the resources you have. The key is the starting pitcher.

The baseball team, led by coach Liu Zhong-il, arrived in Hangzhou via Xiaoshan International Airport in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, on the afternoon of the 28th.

Liu was the first to arrive, smiling and raising his hand in greeting. Other coaches and players followed suit, greeting fans as they arrived.

“It’s hot,” Liu said with a smile, then added, “We have two days left. We have to choose our starting pitcher, and there are things to prepare. I will prepare well so that we can move up to the top of the group.”

“There are coaches who went to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. They said, ‘We’re in much better shape than we were then.’ Especially the pitchers, they all seem to be in good shape,” he added.

On the batting side, “I think Yoon Dong-hee is in the best shape. I’ll decide whether to put her in the second or sixth spot based on her training. As for the batting order, it’s almost 80% in the practice games.”

South Korea has been paired with Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei in baseball at the Asian Games. The other team is likely to be Thailand. The key will be against Taiwan. A team with seven minor leaguers. That’s a lot to take in.

It depends on how well the starters pitch. Kwak Bin and Moon Dong-ju are the “two top aces” in the lineup. That remains to be seen.

Coach Ryu Jung-il said, “I’m worried about starting against Taiwan. It’s either Kwak Bin or Moon Dong-ju. We have Park Se-woong, but for now, Kwak Bin and Moon Dong-joo are our aces. Anyway, when we go up, we will meet Japan or Taiwan, and then Kwak Bin or Moon Dong-ju will have to go out again.”

There are other variables to look at. The stadium environment. This naturally leads to defense. 메이저사이트 “They just laid new artificial turf. We expect the grass to be a bit longer. We’ll also have to see the soil conditions. We’ll check it in training,” he said.

“We’ve been working a lot on defense, especially with players from different teams. There are differences in signing plays, calls, etc. We focused on that for four days after the call-up.”

South Korea won three consecutive gold medals in Guangzhou 2010, Incheon 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang 2018. They will try to make it four in a row. The first game is against Hong Kong on Oct. 1, followed by Chinese Taipei on Oct. 2.
