Cleary backs Marshall for Test recall

first_imgAlthough Marshall hasn’t run out in a Kiwi jersey since 2012, his early-season form proves he would still be up to the task if given the opportunity.”You’d think [his chances of a recall] would have to be fairly good,” Cleary said.”I’m not picking the team but he’s certainly passionate about the Kiwis and he’s playing well so if he keeps that up he’d surely have to be in the running there somewhere.”With the club and Marshall yet to have a conversation around a contract extension, Cleary said with the form he is showing at the moment there is no reason why Marshall won’t be the club’s five-eighth next year.”We haven’t gone there yet. I think Benji is just enjoying his footy. He’s obviously in good form,” Cleary said.”I think he’s rediscovering his old confidence. There is no reason why he couldn’t keep going, but at the end of the day it’s up to Benji [if he wants to play on].”Cleary said his team is showing confidence but there have been no signs of complacency through their unexpected 5-1 start to the season.”It’s been business as usual,” he said.”You can definitely see the confidence but that’s really good, you can’t fake that, that’s part of what they’ve developed.”That started in November when we started training and that intensity has been there consistently and that’s what we’ve got to keep doing.”The Tigers head out to the country to host the Newcastle Knights on Saturday night at Scully Park in Tamworth. They will be looking for their fourth consecutive win when they come up against what Cleary said will be another tough challenge against a revamped Newcastle side.”I think they are really dangerous. Their attack looks pretty sharp and they’ve got plenty of good players in there,” Cleary said.”They’ve recruited really well over the last couple of years of going through that developing phase. Some guys have plenty of first grade under their belts.”It’s easy to see they’ve improved a lot and they’re going to prove a big challenge for us.”last_img read more

The players they will fight for in the Premier League

first_imgThe winter transfer market has already begun and despite the fact that Erling Haaland’s future has been resolved very quickly, there are still great players who could change their air very soon. Daily Mail He has compiled a small list of the great players that could be traded in January in which he explains which teams (especially the Premier League) go after them and the situation of each player.Timo Werner twenty He is one of the young people with the greatest projection of the international football landscape. The Englishman has accumulated a lot of experience both in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League. He will undoubtedly be in the European Championship with his selection of Gareth Southgate, since so far this year he has signed twelve goals and thirteen assists in 24 games with Borussia Dortmund. The 19-year-old is pretended by Real Madrid, but Chelsea and Manchester United will fight for him in the Premier League.James Rodriguez 5 It is by far the player with the least name on the list, perhaps because his team, Hull City, plays in the Championship (the equivalent of the second English division). The 23-year-old acts as a right winger, although he has a goal and can play nine if necessary. In the present campaign, he has 18 points and has distributed five assists in 27 games, being one of the sensations of the championship. Newcastle and Tottenham raffle it. 10 The 21-year-old defender is life insurance for RB Leipzig. The Frenchman is in the middle of London, as Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea follow. The team that now runs Mikel Arteta seems the best placed and would have even made an offer close to 50 million euros. The intention of the Gunner group is to sign it before Brexit can influence the transfer market regulations.Nathan Aké 2. 3 The Danish situation seems clear. He has refused to renew and José Mourinho has failed to convince him to stay at Tottenham. His contract expires in summer and Tottenham does not want it to come out for free, so that every day that passes it is lowering its price a little more. With Madrid out of the bid, Juventus remains, interested since last summer, but both Manchester United and Inter Milan want the midfielder this month. Italians could even give you a bonus for signing as long as you discard the rest of the options. Add three goals and three assists in 23 games, being one of the seasons in London in which less participation has had. Even so, he is a star and will be one of the most coveted players.Wilfried Zaha eleven eleven The Colombian player has had very bad luck on his return to Real Madrid. The injuries have ballasted him and it has been very difficult for him to enter into Zinedine Zidane’s plans. They are attentive to their future both Arsenal and Inter Milan or PSG, but the club that has sounded the loudest is the Everton of Carlo Ancelotti, who already had him at his command both in the Spanish capital and in Bayern Munich, in addition to Ask him during his time in Naples. He has a goal and an assist in nine games, but although he is interested in several clubs, at Real Madrid they count on him and blame his start of the season on bad luck, so in principle they have no intention of selling him, since the idea The main thing is that only Mariano and Brahim leave as assignees.Christian Eriksen The Ivorian is one of those great attackers who do not play for one of the best teams in Europe. A large would have the facility to convince him and enough money to cover his salary. The problem so far has been at the Crystal Palace, which has asked for a high price for it. Arsenal proved it last summer, when they saw a proposal rejected more than juicy. Londoners will continue in a bid that Chelsea joins, which has always been attentive to their movements, and Everton. His numbers are quite similar to those of Eriksen, since he has three goals and three assists in 22 games, although in his case he is undisputed holder in the English club.Dayot Upamecano 7 The German striker of RB Leipzig is backed by the 23 goals and 10 assists he has been in the 25 games played this season. His team is the leader of the Bundesliga, thanks to him. In the selection of Germany it is a fixed and can act as both forward and extreme or midfielder, although seen their numbers the position of nine is the one that best suits your style of play. Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich would be following in their footsteps.Jadon Sancho It is another highly sought after defense. The Dutchman is fast and strong and although he is in great shape with the Bournemouth, it seems that it will not last long there. Pep Guardiola is a big fan of his and reinforcing the central position would be the priority of Manchester City. Chelsea is also on the prowl and has considered offering about forty million pounds. Before he went to Holland as a left back, although now it is more common to see him as a partner of Van Dijk. Aké has a goal and an assist in 16 games and is considered one of the biggest threats in the Premier League air game.Jarrod Bowen 5last_img read more
