Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini believes Swansea could be “very dangerous” when the two sides meet at the Liberty Stadium. Press Association Mancini has also shrugged off yet more speculation over his future. The Italian feels he is not being given due credit for his achievements at the Etihad Stadium as a number of names have been linked with his position. Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini’s name resurfaced this week as it was reported the Chilean’s agent dined with City director of football Txiki Begiristain in Madrid. City have not commented on whether Begiristain did meet Jesus Martinez but, even if he did, as the agent also represents a number of players it could have been for other reasons. Speaking at a press conference, Mancini added: “I hope that he had a good dinner! I think this is not true, but if he went I don’t have any problem.” Besides that, Mancini feels his record at City, having won an FA Cup and a Barclays Premier League title, bears scrutiny and after signing a five-year contract last summer he is confident in his position. Mancini, who has also won a Community Shield, said: “In general, in the last six months, you have written everything. You started six or seven months ago with Pep (Guardiola), (Jose) Mourinho, Pellegrini, (Carlo) Ancelotti, Brendan Rodgers. “I have four years (left on my) contract. I know that I work with serious people, like (chairman) Khaldoon (Al Mubarak) and (owner) Sheikh Mansour. I think that if there was another manager who won three trophies in three years you would say nothing about this manager. “I don’t know why you, in general, continue to ask or say these things.” The Swans have enjoyed another successful season in the top flight, sitting comfortably in mid-table with a trophy in the cabinet following their Capital One Cup success in February. “Swansea did very well last year, a good season, and continue to play very well this year,” said Mancini. “They won a trophy – I think that for them was very important. At this moment, they can play without a problem. For this reason, they could be very dangerous.”
Ward, 21, showed his aggression from the start, but was outfoxed by the Cuban’s defensive work as La Cruz won by unanimous decision over three rounds. La Cruz was leading in the first and second rounds, even though Ward was able to land a few blows of his own. By the time Ward found his groove in the third it appeared too late, although the Cuban did need attention for a cut above his eye. Joe Ward failed in his bid to land light-heavyweight gold at the AIBA World Boxing Championships after Cuba’s Julio Cesar la Cruz defeated the Irishman in Doha. Press Association However, La Cruz was able to see out the fight largely untroubled, winning his third world medal in the process. Ward’s displays at the World Boxing Championships mean he has secured his berth at the Rio Olympics next year. Ward said on www.rte.ie: “Overall, it’s been a great championships. I’m going back (to Ireland) with a silver medal and going to Rio. “I’m going to learn from this now and all I can do is get better and improve with that fight and see how we go in the Olympic Games.” Michael Conlan was crowned Ireland’s first men’s AIBA world champion on Wednesday after a unanimous points victory over Uzbekistan’s Murodjon Akhmadaliev in their bantamweight final.

He never goes out without his matÃ© (a tea-like infusion popular in South America), speaks perfect Spanish, and has a daughter whose godfather is a Uruguayan central defender. But if you think we are talking about a Celeste player, then you would be wrong.The man in question is France striker Antoine Griezmann, who spoke to us about the upcoming quarter-final between the two sides, an occasion that is sure to be an emotional one for a player who describes Uruguay as his â€œsecond countryâ€.Just hours after helping France beat Argentina to move into the last eight at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, the Bleus front man was marveling at Uruguayâ€™s defeat of Portugal. â€œIâ€™m very emotional about them qualifying because I love the country and the people,â€ explained Griezmann. â€œIâ€™ve got a lot of friends there. Itâ€™s going to be a great game to play in and a really emotional experience too.â€ The France man, who even describes his style of play as â€œUruguayan, not unlike Cavaniâ€, began his love affair with the country of three million at Real Sociedad, where his coach was Martin Lasarte. Thrown in at the deep end by the former Uruguayan player, Griezmann was taken under the wing of another Charrua, team-mate Carlos Bueno.It was the ex-Paris Saint-Germain man who introduced Grizou to matÃ© â€“ which the Frenchman now takes with him on every trip â€“ and who made him fall in love with another of his former clubs: Penarol. Griezmann is such a diehard, in fact, that he never misses a match and knows all the fansâ€™ songs.â€œIâ€™ve always had at least one or two Uruguayans at my clubs,â€ said Griezmann, who hung out with Diego Ifran at the San Sebastian club and then Christian Rodriguez on his arrival at Atletico Madrid, where he has also formed close friendships with Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin.â€œDiego is a great friend,â€ continued the France forward. â€œIâ€™m with him every day, on and off the pitch, and thatâ€™s why heâ€™s the godfather of my daughter. He made me want to sign for the club.â€ Discussing the Frenchmanâ€™s love of all things Uruguayan, Godin said: â€œHe loves who we are, our customs and our music, and he drinks more mate than me.â€Aside from his feelings for the country, the 27-year-old attacker also appreciates the playing style of a nation that won the inaugural FIFA World Cup in 1930. â€œThe way they play and their spirit remind me of my club: very tough at the back and lethal up front. To my mind, Edinson Cavani is the best striker. He works for the team, heâ€™s always calling for the ball, and he never gives up on anything. And when heâ€™s in the box, he just needs a touch or two to get a shot off.â€An integral part of Antoine Griezmannâ€™s career, Uruguay and he are about to come together again, but this time on opposing sides of the pitch, in a love match in which there can be no room for sentiment.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Wisconsin hockey squads posted a pair of wins Saturday in the Camp Randall Hockey Classic.[/media-credit]Saturday sure was a great day — and night — for hockey.An announced crowd of 55,031 fans packed Camp Randall Stadium and created an unforgettable atmosphere as Wisconsin and Michigan took the ice for outdoor hockey.The players did their part as well, as junior defenseman Brendan Smith scored two late power play goals to seal a come-from-behind victory for the Badgers.It was neither a conference game, nor a post-season game, but for Smith, the Culver’s Camp Randall Hockey Classic was just about as good as it gets.“When you’re a young player skating on the ice, all you’re thinking about is winning the Stanley Cup and this was pretty damn close,” he said. “It’s just an unbelievable feeling.”The energy the crowd brought to historic Camp Randall Stadium turned a regular season matchup into something so much more, and sophomore forward Jordy Murray could feel the chills coming the moment he stepped into the tunnel — and they weren’t caused by the chilly 21-degree weather.“I figured it would be crazy, but I just had chills even standing in the tunnel,” Murray said. “That first step out there, hearing the crowd, seeing them hanging over the side, was something else; words can’t describe it.”Once Murray and the rest of his teammates took the ice, they focused on a competitive hockey game with retribution for an early season loss to Michigan on their minds.But even in such a tight game, head coach Mike Eaves admitted he was caught up in the electric environment.He couldn’t help but admire the crowd that surrounded him.“We were very cognizant of the surroundings,” Eaves said. “We were looking around and saying ‘look at these people, they’re jumping around, they’re not sitting.’ It was an awesome atmosphere.”The game went back and forth without many scoring chances for either side in the second period, and it was the fans that provided the extra jolt of energy needed as the game moved into the third.At the 14:59 mark in the third period, the UW stadium crew gave the Wisconsin hockey team a moment it will never forget — an experience the football team knows all too well — as they blasted “Jump Around” through the speakers.It may have been a different sport on the FieldTurf at Camp Randall, but one thing remained the same — the stadium shook.“When the fans did the ‘Jump Around’ and everything, I got the chills down the back of my neck,” tri-captain Blake Geoffrion said. “It was unbelievable.”Even Eaves had the urge to jump around.“I felt my knees start to buckle a little bit and getting into it,” he said.In fact, the whole UW bench was caught up in the madness that ensued.“When that ‘Jump Around’ came on all the boys got excited,” Smith added. “We all wanted to jump around.”Behind the added energy of a classic UW ritual the Badgers responded with a thrilling comeback. And as they walked back into the tunnel they were greeted by yet another gridiron tradition.“In Lambeau we had the Lambeau leap because that is what they do there and here it was running up the tunnel and giving all the students high fives who were hanging out,” Eaves said.With the second-largest crowd to ever watch a collegiate hockey game braving the Madison cold, Eaves said he thinks the Camp Randall Hockey Classic could see a second edition in the future.“I hope so. I’ll share this with you — Scooter, who was the older gentleman that was the ice doctor here… he actually feels that doing it at the college level makes a whole lot more sense than the pros,” Eaves said. “Because if you do it every four years, you have a whole new crop of students that haven’t experienced it.”“After what happened tonight… I think we can get that upper part of the stadium full, based on what happened tonight.”But while all these great moments with the crowd certainly played a role in the excitement that resulted from Saturday’s game, it was the way the game ended that turned two-plus periods of uneventful hockey into an instant classic.Sure, the theatrics surrounding the play on the ice were memorable, but according to a physically drained Geoffrion it was Smith’s late game heroics that made the Camp Randall Classic that much more special.“I lost a lot of energy there with everything and being so excited to get out here,” Geoffrion said. “But you know what, 3-2 victory and the way we did it; couldn’t be any better.”
USC Graduate Professional Student Senate will announce the launch of a new program today that will allow graduate students to check out iPads from Leavey Library starting in spring 2012.The program is expected to help graduate students remain competitive in the job market, Jaclyn Selby, GPSS director of academic affairs, said in an email.For graduate students to remain competitive in this job market, it’s helpful for them to be able to have access to an iPad for even a short time to be able to explore new applications in their respective fields, or to test out new teaching methods in the classroom,” Selby said.Selby said the iPads will benefit undergraduate students who have graduate students as teaching assistants.“Having even a few of these iPads available for check-out could have some tremendous benefits to graduate students on campus, and indirectly to the undergraduates for whom they are TAs,” Selby said.Some students, including Zach Cianci, a freshman majoring in business administration, are not convinced the iPads will be useful or worthwhile.“It just doesn’t seem practical,” Cianci said. “Students would have to either have an iPad or an Apple laptop to transfer everything.”Ekaansh Anand, a graduate student studying computer science, said she will probably not use the iPads, though she sees them as beneficial for graduate students.“I probably wouldn’t use this unless I forgot my own laptop, but this is a privilege earned by graduate students,” Anand said.No decision has yet been made regarding how long students will be able to check out iPads, nor regarding whether additional libraries will offer the service.GPSS will host a digital graduate student multimedia tools workshop to inform students about technology available to graduate students today at 1 p.m. at the Forum in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center.
