Lorsqu’on lui a demandé si le joueur de 32 ans serait toujours à Old Trafford la saison prochaine, Ten Hag a répondu : “Oui, mais je ne dirai pas qu’il sera toujours mon numéro un car dans un club comme United, il doit y avoir de la compétition à tous les postes. “

David Babunski: Reared at Barcelona, raring to go at Tannadice

Published

Spread the love

New arrival David Babunski hopes the mentality established during his grounding at Barcelona can help Dundee United achieve “something special”.

The 30-year-old midfielder was with the Catalan giants from ages 12 to 22 before spells in Serbia, Japan, Romania and Hungary.

Coming through the ranks at the famous La Masia academy, he rubbed shoulders with Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Neymar and Xavi and was coached by Pep Guardiola and Jose Enrique.

“To be able to train with those players, see how they think on the pitch, the kind of decisions that they make, it allowed me to improve my own game a lot and learn a lot from them,” said the North Macedonia international.

“I was able to train multiple times with the first team because they give a lot of opportunities to the younger players, so that was wonderful experience for me.

“Expect nothing less than victory in every single game, that is how I was taught and raised at Barcelona, to be very ambitious. I hope I can add that kind of value to this club as well.”

On Tuesday, Babunski enjoyed a good 66 minutes on his United debut, while his compatriot Kristijan Trapanovski scored and set up the other two goals in a comfortable Premier Sports Cup win over Stenhousemuir.

The playmaker sounded out Bojan Miovski before his move to Tannadice and the international team-mates could have been together at Aberdeen, with United boss Jim Goodwin revealing efforts to take him to Pittodrie two years ago.

Babunski also spoke of “fantastic coach” Ange Postecoglou, having played under the former Celtic manager at Yokohama F. Marinos.

On his aspirations at United, he added: “From the moment I arrived, I felt how big this club is and the expectations are very high.

“We want to meet these expectations with ambition, with hard work and hopefully we can do something special this season and fight for the top positions in the table.”

Lionesses’ Millie Bright awarded honorary doctorate

By Caroline LowbridgeBBC News, Derby

Footballer Millie Bright has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Derby.

The Chelsea defender, 30, who captained England to the Women’s World Cup final in 2023, has also been given the freedom of her home county of Derbyshire on the same day.

Bright, who was brought up in Killamarsh, joked to BBC Radio Derby that she would be herding cattle through the streets next time she is back home.

She said it was a “massive honour and a privilege” to be recognised.

‘Passionate little girl’

She spoke about how grateful she was to the people from her home village, where she first started playing football for the Killamarsh Dynamos at the age of nine.

“For me that’s where it all started,” she said.

“So many people from my village had taken time out, sacrificed to help me, to give me the confidence, tell me I was good at something that I personally think I was rubbish at at the beginning.

“I just was a very enthusiastic, passionate little girl that just loved being around people and loved kicking that ball about.”

A football pitch leased by the Killamarsh Dynamos was recently renamed in her honour.

Bright returned to her old club on Wednesday to unveil it, and said it was “very overwhelming” to see so many people turn out.

“I definitely didn’t expect those sorts of numbers and spent hours giving the kids signatures and photos,” she said.

“I always say things like that are not a chore, it’s something I absolutely love and I’m passionate about.”

Millie Bright was given an honorary degree by the University of Derby

Bright was previously appointed OBE along with other members of England’s Lionesses squad.

She was also given the Freedom of Reigate and Banstead, the borough in Surrey where she currently lives.

Being given the freedom of a city or borough sometimes entitles people to privileges, such as the right to drive sheep and cattle over London Bridge.

While the Freedom of Derbyshire does not give any specific powers or rights, Bright joked that she would be taking advantage of her honorary title.

‘Have you got cattle?’

BBC Radio Derby’s Ed Dawes asked her: “Do you know what you can do with the freedom of Derbyshire? Have you got cattle?”

She replied: “No but I know a few farmers so luckily I’ve got that background.”

“So you can just roam them through the streets of any village you want to?” he asked.

She replied: “Yeah, when I get back off holiday I might have a little trip back and if you see the cattle running around it’s just me.”

Savio: Manchester City sign Brazil winger from Troyes until 2029

Published

Spread the love

Manchester City have signed Brazil winger Savinho from French side Troyes until 2029 in a deal worth 40m euros (£30.8m).

The 20-year-old starred on loan at Girona last season as they finished third in La Liga.

Both Girona and Troyes are part of the City Football Group.

Savinho said City are currently the “best team in the world” and that he is excited to work under manager Pep Guardiola, who he called “one of the greatest coaches ever”.

On why Manchester City is the right club for him, Savinho said: “[Because of] everything I’ve seen today. I just got here this morning and I turned to my agent and stepfather and said, ‘there was no way I was going to turn down Manchester City’.

“I’m a Brazilian who likes to play on the front foot, to be happy, to play joyful football.

“I like playing one against one, making assists, scoring goals too, and helping the team. My main characteristic, what I like the most, is being happy and getting fans up off their seats.”

Savinho, who is also known as Savio, started his career at Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro before joining Troyes in the summer of 2022.

He never played a competitive game for the Ligue 2 side, though, as he was sent on loan to PSV Eindhoven for the 2022-23 season.

After making just eight appearances for the Dutch giants, Savinho enjoyed success on loan at Girona last season, scoring 11 goals and making 10 assists in all competitions, and earned a first senior call-up for Brazil in March.

A debut against England followed and he scored his first international goal against Paraguay in the group stage of the Copa America.

City director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “He has a big role to play for Manchester City this season and beyond.

“We are totally confident in his ability. He is still young and has the potential to become even better, and everyone knows that Pep is the best at helping players develop even further.

“But he has already shown his huge quality and technical ability and is an exciting addition to our attacking area.”

Europa Conference League: Linfield and Derry City suffer agonising defeats in Europe

Published

After a disappointing first leg in Gibraltar last week, Derry began brightly and top- scorer Hoban met the returning Michael Duffy’s cross from the left but couldn’t keep his header down.

The hosts stayed on top without doing enough to test former Glentoran keeper Dayle Coleing in the Magpies’ goal and on 25 minutes they were nearly caught out against the run of play. Kevagn Ronco dug out a cross from the right that was glanced on by Javi Forjan and struck the outside of Brian Maher’s near post.

Hoban had the ball in the net on the half hour mark with a trademark header which he crashed in off the inside of the post, but Andorran official Antoine Chiaramonti ruled it out for an apparent foul on Ruben Diaz.

The Candystripes finally opened the scoring on 38 minutes when Connolly rose to meet Duffy’s corner and buried it into the bottom corner.

However, right on half-time City were reduced to 10 when O’Reilly, picked up a second yellow for a dive after going down in the box under a challenge from Jean-Carlos Garcia.

O’Reilly was adamant he was clipped but the referee disagreed and his dismissal meant Ruaidhri Higgins’ side would have to play the second half a man down.

Derry did not come out in the second half like a team reduced to 10 men as they immediately went on the attack. McMullan had an effort from a narrow angle saved less than a minute after the restart, while Hoban couldn’t apply the finish to his cutback.

The pressure paid off just before the hour mark from another corner when Hoban met Ben Doherty’s delivery. His initial header was blocked on the line by his team-mate Will Patching but the Derry number nine reacted fastest to bury the rebound.

Derry kept pushing but almost were caught out when Olatunde Bayode rounded Maher and his cross found Eduardo Salles, but the Brazilian blazed over from six yards. McMullan also missed a late chance to seal the comeback so extra-time was needed to separate the sides.

Out of nowhere in the 111th minute, Juanje’s 30-yard effort came crashing off the bar and De Haro was quicker than the home defence to react and buried the rebound past Brian Maher.

Patching had an overhead kick headed off the line but Derry were unable to find a leveller which would have taken the game to penalty kicks.

Savinho: The story of Man City’s new signing from Troyes

Published

Girona manager Michel is not one to get carried away too easily.

He couldn’t resist the temptation, however, after watching Savinho train for the first time during pre-season last year, immediately calling sporting director Quique Carcel aside.

“We’re going to finish in the top eight,” he told Carcel, who tried, in vain, to bring him back down to earth. “Are you crazy or what?” As it would turn out, Michel could not have got it more right.

Such was Savinho’s impact at the Montilivi stadium that Michel’s prediction wasn’t bold enough – as Girona fought for the La Liga title until the very end. They finished in third place – behind only Real Madrid and Barcelona – and qualified for the Champions League. It was the best campaign in the club’s 93-year history.

Much of the credit for this was given to their electrifying winger.

In the space of a year, Savinho went from a player struggling in PSV Eindhoven reserves to a breakout star in Spain, making his Brazil debut against England at Wembley.

“I know this is a big statement, but I hadn’t seen anyone so effective in one-on-one situations since Vinicius Jr emerged,” Michel said.

“He was perhaps the most surprising talent in La Liga if you consider that [Jude] Bellingham was already known by everybody.”

It’s no wonder Manchester City have made Savinho their first signing of the summer, snapping him up from sister team Troyes, who had loaned him to Girona.

The 20-year-old has become the first player to climb all the way to the top of the City Football Group pyramid.

Having ended last season with 11 goals and 10 assists for Girona, he will be determined to prove that he’s here to stay. It should not be an issue for someone who, despite his age, has always stood out for his strong character and self-esteem.

“I was born with the gift of playing football,” he has said on multiple occasions.

City manager Pep Guardiola will now be hoping to make the most of it.

Kasper Schmeichel: Celtic sign Denmark goalkeeper on one-year deal

Celtic have signed Denmark captain Kasper Schmeichel on a one-year deal after the goalkeeper led his country to the last 16 of Euro 2024.

Schmeichel, 37, was a free agent after leaving Belgian club Anderlecht at the end of last season and replaces former Manchester City club-mate Joe Hart, who has retired.

The Dane has amassed 105 international caps and will join his new team-mates in the United States, where the Scottish champions are on tour.

“Celtic is one of the world’s proper football clubs, a massive name and a place of real passion and success,” he told the club website. Celtic is what football is all about.”

Schmeichel is best known for his 11-year stint with Leicester City, during which the club won an improbable Premier League crown in 2016.

He would later work with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers at King Power Stadium, where the pair claimed the 2021 FA Cup and subsequent FA Community Shield.

“He (Rodgers) is a top manager and someone I can’t wait to work with again,” added the veteran goalkeeper. “I will be doing all I can to keep Celtic on top.”

Schmeichel began his career at Manchester City, and spent a season in the Scottish top flight 17 years ago when he was loaned to Falkirk, before brief spells at Notts County and Leeds.

After leaving Leicester, he played a season at Nice, and moved to Belgium in the summer of 2023.

He made 33 appearances for Anderlecht, keeping eight clean sheets.
