FIFA U-17 World Cup: It will be a dream come true to play alongside Neymar, says USA star Timothy Weah

first_imgThere are a lot of expectations from the young and exciting Timothy Weah, the son of the great George Weah, in the FIFA  U-17 World Cup.But the young Paris-Saint Germain forward seems to be unfazed about it and says that he just looks to play his natural game and help the team.”I just look to play well and to play like myself. Not try and do too much. I’m a simple player, I like to work for the team because that’s the player I am. Sometimes I might be having an off day in the attacking point but that’s because I do a lot defensively. I run a lot,” said Timothy.”So…basically it’s about playing for the team and getting the win. That’s important,” he added.But he couldn’t stay unfazed for long. The moment he was asked about PSG, the excitement and the fanboy in him was clearly out in the open for everyone to see.The forward was all praise about his club side and said that it will be a dream come true to play alongside Neymar, who signed for them in a world-record summer transfer from Barcelona.Reuters Photo “I haven’t met him yet but I hope to meet him because he is my idol. So it will be dream come true to meet him and play with him,” he said.However, his feet are grounded and he accepts that it’s going to take him some time to reach the level of players like Kylian Mbappe and the Edinson Cavani.advertisement”I’ve just played once with them. It’s a completely different world. We commit more mistakes, childish stuff, They are more mature, they play with a sense of urgency. Everything is fast and it’s of the highest level,” said the 17-year-old.When questioned about breaking into the first-team, he said it’s difficult now but he is trying his best to do so in the near future.”It’s tough because we have M’Bappe, Cavani and Neymar and I don’t think I’m at that level yet but I feel playing alongside them in training will help me mature as a player and help me get where I want to be. And maybe in the future I can get my debut and get few starts with them. We will just have to wait and see,” said Weah Jr.PSG are side who have lofty ambitions and you don’t see too many youth players coming out of the system with Adrien Rabiot being an exception maybe. But, the 17-year-old sounded optimistic about his chances at the French capital and said that the club’s handling of him, made him choose them over others.U.S. Soccer YNT Twitter Photo “I thought from my side that PSG is the best side for young players, I really felt they care about me and they gave me the chance to play. You know…coming from America, they don’t expect a player to step up to their play but I felt that they see me as their son. The coach has confidence in me and I respect that. So I feel love for them,” he said.The French side are on top of League 1 and have begun the Champions League on a high, beating Bayern Munich 3-0, which also led to the German champions sacking coach Carlo Ancelotti. Talking about the club’s chances in Europe’s most elite club competition, the forward said that they are a young but good side and beating Bayern Munich was a strong statement.”Right now from Celtic to Bayern…Bayern is a really tough team and to beat them 3-0 really makes a statement, you know. We are young but we have a force and Neymar is one of the best players in the world, MBappe is probably the best 19-year-old in the world and Cavani is probably the top striker. So with those three and Marco Veratti behind is magical,” said an optimistic Weah.last_img read more

Former NFLer’s Scary Ocean Escape

first_imgPLANTATION, Fla. — The former NFL fullback entered the room with a wobble in his walk, and needed assistance climbing a podium so he could face a media throng and discuss his death-defying 16-hour swim to shore.Rob Konrad sipped from a bottle of water, his efforts to rehydrate ongoing four days after the episode. His wife sat at his side rubbing his leg in support, and tears welled in their eyes as he spoke.“Happy to be here,” he began with a wry smile. “I shouldn’t be here,” he said later, his voice cracking.The 38-year-old Konrad’s escape was a testament to willpower and world-class athleticism. The first reports of his adventure last week received worldwide attention.Even endurance swimmer Diana Nyad was impressed. “It’s an incredible story,” Nyad said. “Taking his life in his hands and deciding he was going to save himself, I admire him.”Konrad, who played for the Miami Dolphins from 1999 to 2004, had been around boats since his childhood on Boston’s North Shore. So he knew what it meant when he fell off his 31-foot Grady-White while fishing alone nine miles from land.“A boater’s nightmare,” he said.He swam to Palm Beach, covering a distance of 27 miles before ringing the doorbell of an oceanfront home for help at 4:30 a.m. Jan. 8.The U.S. Coast Guard last week provided a brief summary of the events. Konrad, still weak after several days in the hospital for treatment of hypothermia and dehydration, held a news conference to fill in the details.They were hard to believe, he and his wife agreed. “It was a miracle he made it home,” Tammy Konrad said.Her husband said he was taking his boat for servicing last Jan. 7 and decided to do a little fishing along the way. He had caught a large fish and was tending to the rod when a large wave hit, flipping Konrad into the ocean.His boat was on autopilot and headed east. There were no other boats in sight. Konrad wasn’t wearing a life preserver. It was 12:30 p.m. “I realized I was in some real trouble,” he said.Konrad quickly decided to swim toward shore, although he figured the trip would take more than 10 hours, and feared succumbing to hypothermia or cramps after two or three hours. The ocean temperature was in the low 70s — far from frigid, but a lot colder than his body temperature.So Konrad decided he’d better keep moving. He took off his shirt and began alternating between a breaststroke and backstroke.He said he’s not much of a swimmer, but Nyad figures his football experience made a big difference.“We’re not really talking about a swimming story. We’re talking about a survival story,” Nyad said. “I’m sure his background as an athlete — toughness, having resolve, knowing things are going to be painful — were the saving grace for him.”Konrad said he got bit “by a whole bunch of stuff.” A shark circled before moved along. “There was a lot of stuff glowing at night, probably some jellyfish,” he said.He could also see lights along the coast and pick out landmarks. As he tired, he gained emotional strength. “Five or six hours in I realized, ‘Maybe I can do this,’” he said.Twice he was nearly rescued. A recreational fishing boat approached to within 50 yards, but Konrad couldn’t flag it down. Then a Coast Guard helicopter searching for him flew overhead.“They had their lights on me and kept going. They didn’t see me. That was a difficult time.”But the ex-Dolphin kept swimming, thinking of his daughters, ages 8 and 10. “He had two angels on his back,” his wife said.“I was probably pretty delirious at the time, but I could see the lights getting closer and closer,” he said.Then the sound of the ocean changed. He could hear waves hitting the shore, and finally he reached land as well.“The problem was I couldn’t walk. My body was shaking uncontrollably. I crawled up on the beach and warmed myself up enough to be able to walk.”Paramedics were summoned, and soon he was en route to the hospital. His boat was found near Grand Bahama Island on Deadman’s Reef, the irony of the name not lost on Konrad. He had gone the other way.(STEVEN WINE, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal hero Pires keen to see Henry in the Premier Leagueby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal hero Robert Pires would like to see Thierry Henry in the Premier League.Pires believes former Arsenal teammate Henry deserves a second crack at management in the Premier League, despite his nightmare spell in charge of Monaco.“I saw Thierry a few weeks ago for the game against Tottenham at the Emirates and he is waiting,” said the Frenchman.“He is waiting for something, for the new challenge.“Some people say ‘Yeah, but he was a mistake with Monaco’. I say no.“When you start like this, like Thierry, if you have only three months it’s so difficult to prove something. And especially at this moment. Monaco were so bad, it was so difficult, they had a lot of injuries.“He told me it was a good experience with Monaco. Unfortunately only three months. But he’s ready. He’s ready for the new job and he’s waiting for something.“I think he deserves to have a second chance, maybe in the Premier League.” last_img read more
