    Szczesny eyes more ugly wins in battle for fourth

    (Reuters) - Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is hopeful the team's previous experience of tight Premier League run-ins can help them scrape four more ugly victories and another season of Champions League football. The North London club's title challenge was smashed off course by a 6-0 humiliation at Chelsea last month and a 3-0 defeat by Everton over a week ago put the Merseyside club in pole position to take the fourth Champions League spot. But Arsenal returned to winning ways on …

    Sturridge a doubt for Liverpool's trip to Norwich

    (Reuters) - Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is an injury concern ahead of the English Premier League leaders' trip to Norwich City on Sunday because of a muscle strain. The England forward was forced from the field after 66 minutes of the 3-2 win over title rivals Manchester City on Sunday with what appeared to be a hamstring problem. "Sturridge has since undergone further assessment with the club's medical team at Melwood and a small strain was detected following a scan," Liverpool said …

    Liverpool hangover cost Man City - Pellegrini

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini blamed the hangover from defeat by Liverpool for his side's damaging 2-2 draw at home to the Premier League's bottom club Sunderland. City needed to win the first of their two games in hand on Liverpool to keep the pressure on the league leaders and second-placed Chelsea. But Wednesday's draw with Sunderland, in which they needed a late equaliser from Samir Nasri just to avoid defeat, means that they are still six points behind Liverpool with just one …

    Gareth Bale raced away to score a stunning late winner as Real Madrid made light of the absence of top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to beat arch-rivals Barcelona 2-1 to win a riveting King's Cup final on Wednesday. Wales winger Bale, who joined Real for a world record fee in the close season, galloped down the left wing into the penalty area in the 85th minute at Valencia's Mestalla stadium and slipped the ball superbly between the legs of Barca goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto. Angel Di Maria had …

    We must win final five games to pinch title - Pellegrini

    (Reuters) - Manchester City have not given up on winning the English Premier League title after their 2-2 draw with relegation-threatened Sunderland on Wednesday but they must win their remaining five games, manager Manuel Pellegrini has said. The 2012 champions needed a late Samir Nasri goal to snatch a draw with the bottom-placed Black Cats, a result that left them third in the table on 71 points after 33 games, six behind leaders Liverpool who have played 34 matches. Second-placed Chelsea …

Setiausaha Kehormat KFA Aminuddin Omar dan pengarah Cardiff City, Datuk Lye Ek Seang menandatangani MoU sambil diperhatikan Datuk Mukhriz dan Tan Sri Vincent.

PRESIDEN Persatuan Bola Sepak Kedah (KFA), Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir mengumumkan bahawa pemain pasukan itu akan dibawa ke Stadium Cardiff City jika mereka berjaya memenangi Piala Malaysia musim ini.

Mukhriz yang hadir pada majlis menandatangani memorandum persefahaman (MOU) dengan kelab milik ahli perniagaan Malaysia, Tan Sri Vincent Tan berkata tawaran lawatan itu dilihat boleh memberi motivasi kepada pasukan.

“Jika menang Piala Malaysia, maka wajar untuk melawat Cardiff City. Jangan fikir ianya susah atau mustahil, namun saya akui ia tidak mudah,” kata Mukhriz yang juga Menteri Besar Kedah.

Turut hadir pada majlis tersebut di Hotel Tabung Haji, Alor Setar adalah Setiausaha Kehormat KFA, Aminuddin Omar, pengarah Cardiff City, Datuk Lye Ek Seang dan Tan Sri Vincent sendiri.

MoU tersebut membolehkan skuad Hijau Kuning menjalin kerjasama dengan kelab Wales yang baru dinaikkan ke Liga Perdana Inggeris itu untuk memperbaiki kemahiran pemain, kejurulatihan dan pengurusan kelab.

Penubuhan sebuah akademi bola sepak di kawasan Sungai Petani turut dibincangkan sebagai salah satu kemungkinan usahasama itu.

Vincent yang merupakan Pengerusi dan Ketua Eksekutif Berjaya Group turut menyampaikan sumbangan peribadi berjumlah RM2 juta kepada KFA pada majlis itu.

Mukhriz turut mengesahkan bahawa kerjasama yang dijalin itu adalah untuk jangka masa panjang di mana ianya boleh membantu Kedah kembali menjadi sebuah pasukan yang hebat di masa akan datang.

“Cabaran Liga Malaysia semakin sengit dan kerjasama ini diharap dapat meningkatkan kualiti pemain dan pengurusan pasukan untuk menjadi lebih mantap dengan teknik dan kaedah latihan terkini dikongsi bersama.”

Pasukan Kedah yang tersingkir ke Liga Perdana musim lepas, gagal mencapai sasaran kembali ke Liga Super tahun hadapan selepas sekadar menduduki tangga keempat liga musim ini.

Kedah yang diundi dalam kumpulan D akan memulakan kempen Piala Malaysia mereka apabila berkunjung ke Stadium Jalan Besar untuk menentang juara Liga Super LionsXII, Selasa depan (20 Ogos).

Angel Di Maria had put Real ahead in the 11th minute in the 228th meeting between the two sides when he finished off a swift break with a low shot that Pinto could only palm into the net before Marc Bartra headed in from Xavi's corner in the 68th to make it 1-1.

    Gareth Bale hailed a "perfect night" after his stunning winner for Real Madrid against Barcelona in Wednesday's King's Cup final, his first trophy since moving to Spain for a record fee in the close season.

    Man City title hopes in tatters after Sunderland draw

    By Michael Hann LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City's Premier League title hopes were dealt a crushing blow when they were held to a 2-2 draw by bottom club Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Everton suffered a shock 3-2 home defeat by mid-table Crystal Palace at Goodison Park to put a huge dent in their bid for a top-four finish. City, champions in 2012 and runners-up to neighbours Manchester United last season, failed to respond to their 3-2 defeat at leaders Liverpool on Sunday and stayed third in the table on 71 points from 33 matches, six behind Liverpool and four adrift of Chelsea with only one game in hand.

    Suarez out to torment struggling Norwich again

    By Josh Reich LONDON (Reuters) - It would be a brave gambler who wagered against Luis Suarez becoming the first Liverpool player to score 30 goals in a Premier League season when the leaders head to struggling Norwich City on Sunday (1100 GMT). The Uruguayan has played a major role in taking Liverpool - two points clear of Chelsea with four games left - to the brink of their first league title since 1990, with his 29 league goals one better than Robbie Fowler's previous club best in the Premier League era. He is also two goals shy of equalling the Premier League 38-game season record held by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Supporters, many wrapped in the club's flag, cheered as the squad arrived at Madrid's central Cibeles Square, the traditional home for raucous Real Madrid victory celebrations, in a white open-topped bus with the word "champions" written in black letters on its sides. Fans applauded Real goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas as, following tradition, he leant over the side of the bus and wrapped a Madrid insignia and club scarf around the statue of the Roman goddess that adorns a fountain in the square. "Winning the cup is fantastic, winning against Barcelona is even better," said Ezequiel Munoz, a 20-year-old student who came to the square with a group of friends after the match.
