Danny Ings only had eyes on Liverpool switch

first_img New Liverpool striker Danny Ings 1 Danny Ings insists he only ever had eyes for Liverpool after his switch from relegated Burnley to Anfield.The 22-year-old moved to the club from the Clarets at the end of his contract, with a fee for the England Under-21 international set to be decided by tribunal.Having scored 11 Premier League goals for Sean Dyche’s struggling side, the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Real Sociedad were all heavily linked with a move for the former Bournemouth youngster.But Liverpool won the race for his signature and Ings revealed he did not want to be anywhere else.“As soon as I knew that Liverpool were interested, it was a no-brainer,” he told LFCTV.“It was the only club on my mind, to be fair. And now that it has happened, it’s fantastic for me and my family.“It’s a special club, everybody knows it. With all the history that’s here…it’s definitely a massive step in my career and I’m over the moon.”Last season, no Liverpool striker reached double-figures in terms of league goals last season, with an injury-hit campaign for Daniel Sturridge.But Ings is looking forward to playing alongside Sturridge, who impressed the previous year as he scored 21 goals in a lethal partnership with Luis Suarez.“He’s an unbelievable striker,” Ings said of Sturridge.“He is one of those players who has come through the ranks, he has not had it easy. Now he’s here and he’s established; he’s a fantastic, talented football player I can learn from.”James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Adam Bogdan, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez have also all joined Brendan Rodgers’ charges this summer as the club look to improve on last season’s sixth-placed finish.last_img read more

Leicester’s title chase NOT over after West Brom draw – Mark Schwarzer

first_imgLeicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer insists the Foxes’ Premier League title chase is NOT over, despite dropping points against West Brom on Tuesday.Claudio Ranieri’s men missed the chance to open up a five point lead at the top as they drew 2-2 with the Baggies in a thrilling game at the King Power Stadium.Title rivals Tottenham  now have the chance to leapfrog them into top spot with a win at West Ham on WednesdayThe Foxes dominated at home but failed to take their chances in front of goal, with the result taking them down from the bookies’ first to third favourites for the top flight crown.However, with ten games left to play and everything still to play for at the top, Schwarzer is confident Leicester will have other chances to further stake their claim for silverware.“Between now and the end of the season there are going to be a lot of sways back and forth on who the favourite is  – it’s still not a foregone conclusion who will win,” the Aussie glovesman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“We’re learning very quickly that when you’re at the top, everybody is there to shoot you down.“Teams are coming to the King Power just to get a result, and they’re very satisfied with just taking a draw from us. You’ve got to learn to deal with that and try to find way of overcoming that.“Last night was very frustrating for us, we dominated the game, had a lot of possession, had a lot of chances and on any other night would have scored more goals.“But credit to West Brom, they came with a game plan and they executed it very well. They were threatening going forward, but they scored with their only two real chances on goal.“But you’ve got to take the good with the bad. We were very lucky to pick up three points against Norwich at the weekend.“The manager was very positive after the game, and rightly so because the boys played very well. He was extremely encouraging and said nobody should hang their heads.“There are a lot of games to go, so we’ve just got to keep plugging away.”last_img read more

Paul Clement rules out role in Sam Allardyce’s England set-up

first_imgBayern Munich assistant manager Paul Clement has confirmed that he will not be joining Sam Allardyce’s England coaching team.Newly-appointed England manager Allardyce had hoped to make the 44-year-old part of his backroom staff, with the Football Association attempting to negotiate a deal with the Bundesliga champions that would have seen him handed a part-time role during international breaks.Clement was sacked as Derby manager last season but has built a strong reputation as an assistant, working under Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and now Bayern.However, having only appointed him in June, Bayern were against Clement adding to his workload.In a series of tweets, Clement said: “Following recent media reports I would like to clarify the situation with regards to a possible role with the England national team.“After consultation between FC Bayern, the FA and myself it was decided that it is in the best interests of everyone involved for me to concentrate solely on the job I have in Munich.“I would like to wish success to Sam, The FA and the England Team.”Allardyce, who was confirmed as Roy Hodgson’s successor last month, has already appointed former Bolton colleague Sammy Lee as assistant coach.
