A referee should consider all such factors.”Salah, meanwhile, is very lucky his foot was not planted in the turf, because that challenge could have caused him serious injury.”

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Villarreal fullback Moreno: Klopp stopped my opportunities at Liverpoolby Freddie Taylor10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAlberto Moreno has finally spoken about the circumstances that led him to leave Liverpool, and his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.The left back was signed in 2014, but failed to show the necessary quality or consistency to establish himself as a mainstay in the position.He was not able to show Klopp that he was good enough for the first time, which led to his eventual sale.Moreno has now lifted the lid on that relationship.”After the Europa League Final (2016) I spent the year on the bench. Then I thought of leaving,” the Spaniard told local paper El Periodico Mediterraneo.”Klopp told me if I got something really good and he didn’t need me, to talk, but in the end he convinced me to stay.”And the first day came and I started playing, Premier League, Champions League, always starting.”[Then-Spain coach Julen] Lopetegui even called me, Lopetegui for the national team.”But I was injured in December and after I recovered, I no longer played.”Klopp no longer gave me opportunities. He’s a very good coach, but he decides to go forward with his 13 or 14 players and that works.”
Texas Recruits Charles Omenihu, Kai Locksley Get Into It On Twitter With Texas A&M 5-Star DT Daylon Mack
daylon mack charles omenihu kai locksley texas a&m twitterTexas and Texas A&M might not have a football rivalry on the field anymore, but one certainly exists off of it. Thursday night, Aggies’ five-star defensive tackle Daylon Mack upset some Longhorns’ fans – and a couple players – with a tweet. Mack, a 6-foot-1, 330-pound defensive lineman pledged to Kevin Sumlin’s program, poked fun at Charlie Strong’s “I don’t know if I want to go walking into College Station right now” comment. He created a T-shirt featuring the quote and tweeted a photo of the clothing item. Mack then called out Texas signee Charles Omenihu, a three-star defensive end upset by the T-shirt, tweeting a conversation they had about playing together at TAMU. Clearly I had the option to be a longhorn I just chose different. Your only at Texas because we never offered you #NuffSaid @charless_94— THEE MACK TRUCK (@DaylonMack) April 17, 2015Lol we wanted you?? Haha ok @charless_94 pic.twitter.com/EPD60U5h0x— THEE MACK TRUCK (@DaylonMack) April 17, 2015Omenihu responded with a screenshot of another conversation. This one suggests Mack was interested in playing at Texas (which he was, but later opted to attend Texas A&M). @DaylonMack come on now don’t try and flex on me pic.twitter.com/iOJjlnWhWm— Charles™‼️ (@charless_94) April 17, 2015Thankfully, the posting of previous conversations ended there. The Twitter jabs didn’t stop, though. Texas four-star QB commit Kai Locksley and four-star linebacker commit Cecil Cherry joined in on the action, too.
