Loading… Jurgen Klopp hailed his Liverpool players after writing their own history by winning the Premier League title. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea on Thursday night ensured the Reds claimed their first top-flight title in 30 years. The German told Sky Sports: “The players wanted to write their own history and stories so they were ready not to compare us with those great figures in this club. “We were unbelievably good last year and smashing this record is absolutely exceptional. It is really difficult to get there.” On whether he will get a statue like the Reds’ previous title-winning managers, Klopp joked: “They all got theirs when they were not here. I want to live for 30 or 40 years!” Klopp is confident Liverpool will not lose the hunger for silverware after winning the Champions League, Club World Cup, Super Cup and now the Premier League. He said: “We won some stuff but they are still humble and as long as they stay humble we have a chance of being successful.” Klopp also reserved praise for the fans too, saying: “I know it means the world to them – it means the world to me. “It’s massive and what I love is when you have a successful football club in your city it gives the whole city a lift. I am really happy for our people.” Captain Jordan Henderson, who joined Liverpool nine years ago, is adamant his side will not rest on their laurels for the last seven games as he has his sights on the highest points total in a Premier League campaign. He told the club’s official website: “It’s hard to describe, to be honest. But after the final whistle it was just an amazing feeling, especially to spend it with all the lads and the staff. READ MORE: Dalglish pays emotional tribute to Klopp as Liverpool title wait ends “To finally get over the line is a relief but also an amazing feeling. It’s a unique feeling and one that I’m very proud of. “I’ve been so honoured to be part of this football club right from the first moment that I came and to go on the journey to be with this manager, this group of players, these fans – it’s been so special. “But we’ll enjoy this, we’ll celebrate, but then I know in the next few days they’ll be straight onto the next game, which is City, and finishing the season off as well as we can. “We want to win every game and we want to finish off with the highest points record we can and give everything we’ve got and then we’ll go into next season and we’ll want even more.” Liverpool are 23 points clear of closest challengers City, whose reign as Premier League champions came to an end, with 28 wins, two draws and only one defeat from their 31 matches. But despite their immense success this season, Henderson insists there was never a point where he thought Liverpool were home and hosed. read also:Dalglish: More titles to come under Klopp! “There were numerous games where I felt there were big results and big performances in certain stages of the season,” he added. “But at the same time I never got carried away after a win or a performance – it was literally ‘job done, let’s pick it up next game and go again and keep doing that until we get to this point’. “You never know what is going to happen in football.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
Two months after the Premier League season ended, one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer is yet to end. Madrid have made it clear they want De Gea and sources at Old Trafford admit a tentative bid was made for the goalkeeper by the Spanish giants earlier this summer. Manchester United are resigned to losing David de Gea but insist they will not be bullied into selling the goalkeeper to Real Madrid on the cheap this summer. Senior figures at Old Trafford want the club to be “slugging it out” with Madrid for the best players in world football – and they believe they have the financial muscle to do so. The feeling at Old Trafford is that Real Madrid’s financial power is in decline. The deal for Spanish TV rights is a fraction of the English equivalent and will remain that way for the next six years. United have also noted that Real have tied several senior players down to long-term contracts, which has come at an enormous cost to the 10-time European champions. United boss Louis van Gaal is said to be “relaxed” about the De Gea situation, mainly because he has a contingency plan in place if the Spaniard leaves. Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has been lined up as a replacement if De Gea goes this summer and United have entered talks with free-agent Sergio Romero, who they hope will replace the unwanted Victor Valdes. Valdes has been linked with a move to Valencia, but such is his love for Barcelona that he is likely to avoid a return to Spain. Turkish club Antalyaspor are interested in the 33-year-old, who was being considered as a potential replacement for De Gea until he apparently refused to play for the reserves towards the end of last season. De Gea is due to play in the first game of United’s pre-season tour of the United States in the early hours of Saturday morning in Seattle. Van Gaal is likely to hand Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian and Morgan Schneiderlin their debuts against Mexican side Club America. Despite signing four new players, the spending at Old Trafford has not stopped yet, according to Van Gaal. “We are not finished yet, I think,” the United boss told MUTV. “We need a balance in the selection and I think we still need to improve at least two positions and we shall do that when it is possible. “But we shall only buy when the player can give a contribution to our level. And, of course, that is in the eyes of our staff, but I have to have confidence that he can cope with the rhythm of the Premier League.” But, the proposal was rejected and United are determined to play hard ball with Madrid president Florentino Perez over their star goalkeeper. Press Association Sport understands United have all but given up hope of persuading De Gea to sign the new £200,000 a week deal that has been on the table since November last year. But, they are in no rush to let their two-time player of they year depart either. It is expected he will leave Old Trafford either this summer or next. However, it is also understood that United have told Madrid they will only sell De Gea to Real in this window as part of a swap deal for defender Sergio Ramos. United would prefer to let De Gea run down his contract than sell him for a cash offer of around £25million. With a bumper TV deal soon to kick in, and the cash from their huge kit deal with adidas, United are not short of money. Sources at the club admit they have also become irritated by the suggestion that they have to sell De Gea because of Madrid’s status as a football super power. Press Association
The No. 13 USC men’s swimming and diving team will take on some of the toughest competition it has seen all season as it competes at the 2010 NCAA championships this week at Ohio State’s McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion this Thursday through Saturday.Prepared · Senior James Martin will compete in his first NCAAs. – Heather Lee | Daily Trojan USC’s elite NCAA team includes of senior co-captains James Martin and Zoltan Povazsay juniors Clement Lefert, Richard Charlesworth, Dillon Connolly and diver Steven Starks; sophomores Jeff Daniels, co-captain Pat White and diver Harrison Jones; and freshmen Alex Lendrum and Nick Karpov.“We are excited about our prospects this week,” USC coach Dave Salo said. “The goal is to move into the top 10 this year.”Jones, an All-American, and Starks are the only returning NCAA point scorers for USC. Povazsay was an All-American on a relay as a freshman at West Virginia in 2007 and will be returning to the NCAA championships for the second time as a Trojan along with teammates Connolly and White.Jones’ stellar performance at the 2010 Pac-10 championships, where he came first on the 1-meter springboard — USC’s first springboard title since 1999 — should give the sophomore confidence leading into this week’s competition.Povazsay, Lefert, White and either Martin or Charlesworth (the final relay team is yet to be decided) are being counted on to start off the competition with a bang in the 800-yard freestyle relay, which USC won at the 2010 Pac-10s with a time of 6:19.17. The relay also saw Lefert break USC’s 200-yard freestyle record in the first leg, a time he broke again at the Pac-10 championships when he won the 200-yard freestyle individual event (1:33.75).“We are also looking toward strong relay results — especially the 800-free relay,” Salo said.Lefert and White are both ranked in the top eight in freestyle events. Both Trojans have had exceptional seasons and hope to finish it off with even stronger performances at the championships.This week marks the last collegiate competition for Martin and Povazsay, who will be graduating in May, and for British teammate Charlesworth, whose NCAA eligibility expires at the end of this semester.In his strong performance at the 2010 Pac-10 championships, Martin came in sixth in the 400-yard individual medley, but his preliminary time (3:45.96, a personal best) would have scored him second place overall.Martin has the ability to go even faster this week in the 400-yard individual medley. He will also be competing in the 200-yard medley relay, the 200-yard backstroke and 800-yard freestyle relay.Connolly still remains the team’s strongest breaststroker, owning school records for both the 100-yard (52.73) and 200-yard breaststroke (1:55.57) and is ranked among the top eight in the 100-yard breaststroke going into the competition.“We are a much improved team from last year,” Salo said. “The guys are relaxed and looking forward to the start of the competition.”
The No. 13 USC men’s golf team got off to a rough start Sunday at the Ping/Golfweek Fall Preview in Stillwater, Okla., but managed to pull it together for the second day of competition.Fighting on · Sophomore Martin Trainer beat his 7-over-par 79 Sunday with a 3-over-par 75 in the second round of play Monday. Although his Trojan squad is currently in last place, the team shot 26 strokes better on Monday than Sunday. – Photo courtesy of USC Sports Information After shooting a 43-over-par 331 on Sunday — enough to place the Trojans last in a competitive 15-team field — the entire team saw drastic improvement Monday. The team shot a 17-over-par 305 — 26 strokes fewer than day one.Still, the Trojans remain in 15th place in the tournament at a 60-over-par 636, seven strokes behind 14th place Texas Christian University and 52 behind first place Oklahoma State.After being forced to withdraw from the competition with hip problems on Sunday, sophomore T.J. Vogel came back strong for the Trojans on Monday, leading the team and shooting a 2-over-par 74 with two birdies, despite lingering effects from the injury.“T.J played very well today even though he was injured,” said sophomore Martin Trainer. “He can barely swing a club.”Vogel is not eligible for individual ranking because of his withdrawal on Sunday, but a 74 gives him the lowest score of any Trojan at the tournament.Trainer had a similarly strong day, finishing four strokes less than Sunday at 3-over-par 75, enough to bump him up to 45th place.“My round, personally, was up and down,” Trainer said. “It was frustrating because I’d have a really good stretch and then a bad stretch. This course is kicking our butts. There was a lot of wind — it was getting up to around 25 miles per hour.”Trainer’s scorecard shows four birdies in addition to four bogeys and one double bogey.Sophomore Stewart Hagestad and freshman Jeffery Kang both shot for 6-over-par 78, with Hagestad improving by one stroke (after a 7-over-par 79 on Sunday) and Kang by three (after a 9-over-par 81) to land at 54th and 60th, respectively.Hagestad played consistently on the first nine, matching all but one of his bogeys with a birdie. He had less luck on the back nine, losing five strokes on two double bogeys and a bogey.Kang had a much tougher round, hitting one birdie, five bogeys and two double bogeys in the first 17 holes before finally scoring the Trojans’ only eagle on the last hole.Sophomore Sam Smith, the fourth member of the Trojan contingent, improved his score with a 9-over-par 81, an 11-stroke difference from his 20-over-par 92 performance on Sunday. Smith has sat in 73rd place both rounds.Despite a tough two rounds, the team remains optimistic.“We hung tough. We went out and tried our hardest, and put up a couple decent scores,” Trainer said. “We know how talented we are, and that all of us can do a lot better. We look forward to the next round, and the next tournament. This was a wake-up call, and we can finally look at what we need to do to improve.”The Trojans will compete in round three today, after which they have a two-week break before facing Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio.

TRAINER QUOTES WHAT MIGHT BE NEXT? “If we do decide to go two turns, we’re looking at the mile and a sixteenth race here on June 7 (Grade III, $100,000 Affirmed Stakes).” JERRY HOLLENDORFER, KENTUCKIAN, WINNER: “He drew real well in this race and we were hoping to have a clear run at the speed today, which there was a lot of. It’s nice to have an owner like Rick (Porter, of Fox Hill Farms, Inc.), who lets you do the things you need to do. He had a small foot problem down here so we decided to take him to Golden Gate. He was training well up there and Rick told me, ‘Let’s go ahead and run him there.’ He wasn’t concerned about the smaller purse because he knows we’re trying to develop the horse. In order to do well you have to have a horse that can run and you have to have owners that let you do your thing. JOCKEY QUOTESMIKE SMITH, KENTUCKIAN, WINNER: “He reminds me of Holy Bull. He has an unbelievably high cruising speed and stride.“He jumps a long ways and he was really running and they were still two or three in front of me so I was thinking ‘how fast are we going?!’ I knew we were going quick, but after a quarter mile he just took a deep breath and got into a fluid stride. I thought ‘there you are, now we’re OK.’ In the beginning he was scrambling and was kind of tight and when they do that, they don’t always breathe right. I just kept waiting for him, waiting for him… and then I felt really confident.“The last furlong I pulled my stick up just because I heard Trevor saying someone was coming but, when I looked on the big screen, I put it back down.” NOTES: The winning owner is Rick Porter who races as Fox Hill Farms, Inc.
