US Women’s Soccer League Postpones Matches after Abuse Allegations

The top professional women’s soccer league in the United States, under fire for its handling of allegations of sexual misconduct against a head coach, announced on Friday that it was postponing its weekend matches. “This week, and much of this season, has been incredibly traumatic for our players and staff, and I take full responsibility for the role I have played,” National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) commissioner Lisa Baird said. “I am so sorry for the pain so many are feeling,” Baird said in a statement. “Recognizing that trauma, we have decided not to take the field this weekend to give everyone some space to reflect.” The postponement came after the North Carolina Courage fired head coach Paul Riley on Thursday for what the team called “very serious allegations of mi...

You are not Improving Lukaku – Conte hits Out at Tuchel

Former Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte, has accused Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel, of not playing to Romelu Lukaku’s strengths. Conte was speaking ahead of the Blues’ 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night. The Italian bragged about the work he did to improve Lukaku when they worked together at Inter for two seasons. “A coach is good if he can improve players. I think we did great work with Romelu over two years. “He is a very specific striker. Bringing Lukaku into the box is dangerous. However, when he starts from midfield, he is incredibly quick. It’s very difficult to find a player who is both a target man, but can also run from midfield. “These are also characteristics I can see in Erling Haaland. I had been tracking Lukaku fo...

Rodgers: Why Iheanacho, Ndidi, Leicester Teammates Struggled

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes a hectic fixture list may have caught up Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi and their teammates following their 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton on Friday night. Leicester played against 10 men for 80 minutes of the game after Jannik Vestergaard was sent off for denying Jamie Vardy a goalscoring opportunity. But despite that, it was Southampton who took the lead through James Ward-Prowse’s penalty. Jonny Evans headed home an equaliser from a brilliant cross from Iheanacho. Rodgers’ men however failed to find a winner and therefore dropped points in the race to finish in the top four. And while not offering it as an excuse, Rodgers said their schedule could have contributed to their stalemate at St Mary’s. “W...
