Wenger never lost faith in Ozil

first_img The ex-Real Madrid ace was heavily criticised after Arsenal’s 2-0 Champions League defeat at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday. But Gunners boss Wenger wanted to show faith in his £42.5m record buy and did not consider benching him. “Not really no,” he said. “I have many offensive players and you look to find the right balance. I gave (Alexis) Sanchez a rest because he’s played many games and we have many experienced players who are top quality. “You have to show him the confidence is there and he showed he can respond when he was under scrutiny. “It’s always a sensitive point, you don’t know how people respond to that.” Welbeck also opened his account for the season to leave Wenger delighted. “It was a similar goal to the one he scored in Switzerland (for England), it comes from the left and he pushed it in because the timing of his run was good,” he said. “He had a very good performance, kept the ball well and had a good all-round game.” Arsene Wenger insisted he never thought of resting Mesut Ozil after the German inspired Arsenal to victory at Aston Villa. Press Association The World Cup winner scored his first goal of the season at Villa Park to spark a blitz which saw the Gunners net three times in just over three first-half minutes to seal a 3-0 victory. Ozil set up Danny Welbeck for his first goal since his £16million move from Manchester United before Aly Cissokho’s own goal sealed the win after just 36 minutes. Villa were ravaged by a stomach bug which ruled out Darren Bent, Nathan Baker and Ashley Westwood. Midfielder Westwood withdrew in the warm-up and Andreas Weimann was sick and substituted at half-time while Brad Guzan and Fabian Delph were also ill despite playing. “We had so much bad luck this week,” said boss Paul Lambert. “Before the game we lost Darren, Nathan and Westy and then Andi at half time. Fabian had a bug and Guzan too. “I knew we weren’t best prepared because of the virus going around. A lot of the staff are not feeling good. “It’s a tough game for us when everyone is 100 per cent fit but the lads were running on empty.” Ciaran Clark and Delph had both gone close during a fast start for Villa, who would have gone top of the Barclays Premier League with a win. “If we had scored at the start it might have given us something to hang on to. The start we’ve had is great and there are a lot of positives at the moment,” Lambert added, after their first league defeat of the season. “We have 10 points from five games which is a good return.” last_img read more

PCL Regional four-day season to bowl off on October 26

first_img… Opportunity knocks for players, says Jimmy Adams`ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Director of cricket Jimmy Adams has urged players to use the upcoming first class season to stake their claim for a place at the higher level.The four-day season is set to bowl off on October 26 and Adams said the three-month season provided the ideal chance for youth cricketers and fringe players to grab the attention of senior selectors.“It’s an opportunity for the talented players in our game to stake a claim for a place in international matches,” said Adams, who took over from Englishman Richard Pybus earlier this year.“It’s also an opportunity for us to see young players that have just come out of youth cricket and it’s another opportunity for us to showcase the depth of West Indies talent, so I am quite looking forward to the start of this four-day season.”The first class tournament will kick off the West Indies’ domestic season, which also includes the Regional Super50 one-day tournament next January and the Caribbean Premier League at the back end of next summer.For the fourth straight year, the season will be played under a home-and-away format which will again see 10 rounds of matches, a feature Adams said was key to player development.“This tournament is critical to our game in view of its length, since there are return matches. It provides so many opportunities for young players and for some who have been around for a long time to get a lot of matches under their belt,” said the former West Indies captain.“I think it is also good for the selectors to have an opportunity to see more of the players in different conditions, so it will throw up a lot of very, very useful information and give us a better indication about the quality of our players.“It’s a very important cog in the wheel of the development cycle, so I am looking forward to seeing how players have progressed from the end of last season.”He added: “Just the fact that they are playing consistently more games, it has been critical for a lot of our players along that development curve to be able to play as much as they can within the season.”Cricket West Indies (CWI) has transformed the first class tournament into a professional franchise set-up from the old territorial format, with players on full contracts and the season extended to include home-and-away fixtures.Under the new stipulations, players can also move between franchises, and are selected out of a draft ahead of each season.This year, the season has been squeezed into three months – wrapping up January 21 – and Adams underscored the importance of player fitness to cope with the demands.“It will be a demanding season for the players and to be able to cope with the level of sustained physical and mental pressure, we will need them to be in top condition, so that they can repeat good performances and so it has to be a massive part of their preparation going into the season.”Three-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars will open the defence of their title against Jamaica Scorpions at the Guyana National Stadium while Barbados Pride host Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Kensington Oval and Windward Islands Volcanoes and Leeward Islands Hurricanes clash at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada,last_img
