Atlanta United part ways with coach De Boer

first_imgAtlanta United FC has parted ways with Frank De Boer as manager,Atlanta United FC has parted ways with Frank De Boer as managerKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |  Major League Soccer (MLS) team Atlanta United announced on Friday that the club and head coach Frank de Boer have mutually agreed to part ways.The club will announce an interim coach shortly while beginning a search for the permanent replacement for de Boer.“On behalf of Atlanta United, I would like to thank Frank for his leadership and commitment to the club,” said Atlanta United president Darren Eales in a statement.“Under Frank’s guidance, the club had a strong 2019 season in both MLS and international competition. After discussing it with Frank, the decision was reached mutually to part ways. In winning two trophies in his first season in charge, he will always be a part of the club’s history, and with great appreciation and respect we wish him all the best in the future,” Eales added.Former Dutch international De Boer was announced as the club’s head coach in December 2018. Atlanta United finished the 2019 MLS season in second place in the Eastern Conference.But in the ongoing MLS is Back tournament, the team was knocked out of the round of 16 after losing all three matches in the group stage without scoring. “I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had with Atlanta United,” De Boer said. “Coaching in Major League Soccer and living in Atlanta has been a wonderful experience and a welcome new challenge. I will never forget the incredible supporters here in Atlanta, they are truly special. I want to thank the players, coaches and staff for all of their support, it has been my pleasure to work with all of you.”The 2020 season was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic in March, and the league restarted in July with the MLS is Back tournament. MLS said the regular season will follow the MLS is Back tournament.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more


Teen star Charley Hull fifth in LET event

first_img Teen star Charley Hull in the LET mix in Turkey 11th May, 2012 England’s world number three amateur, Charley Hull, is just two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend at the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open on the Ladies European Tour. The 16-year-old from Woburn (pictured © LET/Tristan Jones) outplayed the likes of Laura Davies, Melissa Reid and last week’s winner, Carly Booth, to lie in a share of fourth place at the halfway stage in her Ladies European Tour debut event at National Golf Club in Antalya. The defending champion and Solheim Cup player Christel Boeljon of the Netherlands retained a share of the overnight lead at three under and was joined by Finland’s Ursula Wikstrom on a tough day, when a swirling breeze and tricky pins played havoc with scoring. Finland’s Minea Blomqvist was a stroke back at two under. Charley, who tied for 38th in her first Major at the Kraft Nabisco Championship last month, showed maturity beyond her years as she mixed three birdies with two bogeys to end the day at one under par in total. She likened the tight-tree lined layout to her home course and looked fearless as she attacked the pins, even hitting the flag on the tough 18th, where the second shot plays over a lake. “I feel like it was good. I feel like I left a lot of shots out there, but it was all right, steady. I was just relaxed,” said Charley. “I think you’ve just got to stay patient. You’ve got to hit it straight, chip great and putt great. Your game’s got to be pretty good. It reminds me of my home course, Woburn, like the tightness of the Duchess, but the greens of the Marquess, and then the wind can get up here as well, so it’s pretty good.” On a day when most of the leading professionals struggled, Charley made a great start with a pair of birdies on the third and fourth holes. She dropped a shot at the par-five 12th, which has been remodelled with a new green this year, birdied the 13th and then bogeyed the par three 16th. She nearly holed for a two at the 357-yard par-four 18th, but her ball bounced towards the water and came to rest 30 feet from the flag. On her game plan for the weekend, she said: “I’ll try and make a birdie every three holes, because I find when I go to the scorer, there’s always a birdie chance.” Should Charley win this weekend in Turkey, she would edge Amy Yang as the Ladies European Tour’s youngest ever champion aged 16 years, one month and 23 days.

The 16-year-old international, who is third in the world amateur rankings, was one-under par after steady rounds of 73, 72, 73 and 73. The championship was won, for the second year in a row, by Christel Boeljon of Holland who was seven-under. Afterwards Charley said: “I’m really happy I came fifth on my own and I didn’t shoot over par at all, all week. I didn’t expect anything: I just go out there and play golf and have fun, which I did.” The Woburn player was in the mix throughout the tournament. After the first round she was three shots off the pace, at the halfway stage she was two off the lead and sharing fourth place. With a round to go, she was tied eighth and her solid play in the final round moved her up the leaderboard to fifth. Last month Charley played in the first women’s Major of the season, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California and impressively finished tied 38th. Now, she will prepare for next month’s Curtis Cup match against the USA, which takes place at Nairn, Scotland, from June 8-10.

Yanks Sign Ellsbury from Sox: $153M

first_imgNEW YORK –  Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said.The Ellsbury move headlined a day when the Major League Baseball player market heated up, with catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia following center fielder Ellsbury through the Fenway Park exit, moving to Miami.Boston already has lined up a catching replacement in A.J. Pierzynski, who comes over from Texas.Add in a pair of trades by Oakland, a three-team deal involving Arizona, Cincinnati and Tampa Bay, plus two other swaps Tuesday, and baseball’s business season has started to boil a week before the winter meetings.Ellsbury was to take a physical in New York on Dec. 4 that he must pass before the third-highest deal for an outfielder in MLB history can be finalized, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.Earlier on Dec. 3, New York finalized an $85 million, five-year contract with All-Star catcher Brian McCann.There is a long history of stars moving from Beantown to the Big Apple during their careers. Babe Ruth was the most famous, and Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs and Johnny Damon followed.Ellsbury, who turned 30 in September, led the majors with 52 stolen bases despite being hobbled late in the season by a broken right foot. The leadoff man batted .298 with nine homers and 53 RBIs, and the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium should boost his power numbers.Pierzynski agreed to a one-year contract with the Red Sox, a person with knowledge of those negotiations said, also on condition of anonymity because the agreement wasn’t final.Pierzynski and David Ross, Boston’s backup catcher, both will be 37 next season. With prospects Christian Vazquez and Blake Swihart making their way up the system, the Red Sox were reluctant to give a multiyear deal to Saltalamacchia.Saltalamacchia agreed to a $21 million, three-year deal with the Marlins, two people familiar with those negotiations said, also on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been finalized.Also, Minnesota completed a $49 million, four-year contract with pitcher Ricky Nolasco, who made 33 starts last season for Miami.The Twins are also finishing a $24 million, three-year deal with Phil Hughes that is expected to be announced later this week.Tampa Bay acquired relief pitcher Heath Bell from Arizona and catcher Ryan Hanigan from Cincinnati, and the Rays sent pitcher Justin Choate and a player to be named to Arizona. The Diamondbacks sent pitcher David Holmberg to Cincinnati.Hanigan agreed to a $10.75 million, three-year contract.Oakland, which acquired Jim Johnson from Baltimore on Monday, reached an agreement with free-agent pitcher Scott Kazmir, The Athletics also obtained outfielder Craig Gentry and pitcher Josh Lindblom from Texas for outfielder Michael Choice and infielder Chris Bostick. They also took pitcher Luke Gregerson from San Diego for outfielder Seth Smith.In other deals, Philadelphia acquired pitcher Brad Lincoln from Toronto for catcher Erik Kratz and pitcher Rob Rasmussen; while Houston took outfielder Dexter Fowler and a player to be named from Colorado for outfielder Brandon Barnes and pitcher Jordan Lyles.– Ronald BlumTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
