Leverkusen on Friday announced they have extended Bosz’s contract till June 2022 despite producing what some have dubbed mixed results in 2019. Nigeria international and SC Paderborn left back may not be available to checkmate visiting Leverkusen after bagging a yellow card in their last game against Eintracht Frankfurt which ended 2-1 in favour of Paderborn. Leverkusen go into Sunday’s match fresh from a lone goal victory over Mainz in their last league match. A gingered Bosz will be hoping to celebrate his new contract with a victory. Bosz, 56, took over in January 2019 and guided them to a fourth-place finish. This season, they sit seventh, nine points behind leaders RB Leipzig, before Sunday’s away match at bottom side Paderborn as the league resumes this weekend after the winter break.

However, poor performances meant they failed to reach the knock-out stages of the Champions League after finishing third in their group and lost three of their final four games of 2019. “We greatly appreciate Peter Bosz’s daily work for Bayer,” said club chairman Fernando Carro in a statement. “We have ambitious goals, which we are convinced we can achieve together with Peter Bosz at the head of the coaching team.” Sports director Rudi Voeller says Bosz’s work is “recognisable in every training session and in every game. He has the important ability to continuously develop a team.” Read AlsoJamilu Collins:  Bayern match the toughest of my career Bosz coached Ajax to the 2017 Europa League final in Stockholm, where they lost 2-0 to Manchester United, but he then lasted just a few months at Borussia Dortmund, who fired him in December 2017 citing poor results.

The crucial gathering of the embattled organisation, suspended as the Olympic governing body for the sport in June, was due to take place in the Swiss city on March 20. In a letter to Member Federations, AIBA Interim President Mohamed Moustahsane revealed the date would remain the same but the Congress would instead be held in the Hungarian capital. The decision to switch the venue was made after AIBA received “full support from the Hungarian Boxing Federation”. “We are confident that together we will deliver a very successful Congress,” Moustahsane added.

first_imgTHE West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has selected a new Chief Operations Officer and a new head coach during its board of directors meeting held between Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11 in St Maarten.Sources tell Sportsmax.tv that the names will be revealed later this week.The West Indies team have been without a head coach since September when Phil Simmons was fired just prior to the team’s departure for a Test series against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi. He was in charge of the senior squad for 18 months during which the West Indies won the ICC T20 World Cup in India in April.It was also in September that it was announced that current CEO Michael Muirhead would be stepping down as soon as a replacement could be found.Once he leaves office, Muirhead will be in charge of managing the Sticky Wicket facility that is currently being upgraded and is to be the new home for the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies Academy.Meanwhile, our sources say that former West Indies and Guyana batsman Travis Dowlin has been appointed to the selection panel of the West Indies Cricket Board. The 39-year-old former right hand batsman fills a vacancy that had been created following the departure of former West Indies fast bowler Courtney Walsh.He will now serve on the panel comprising Courtney Browne, Lockhart Sebastien and Eldine Baptiste.Dowlin played six Tests for the West Indies between July 2009 and June 2010 scoring 343 runs at an average of 31.18 and a highest score of 95 against Bangladesh.He also played 11 One Day Internationals during which he scored an unbeaten century also against Bangladesh in Rosseau.Dowlin was thrust into the Test squad when the senior West Indies players went on strike over a contracts dispute before the St Vincent Test against Bangladesh in 2009.That season he was the second-highest run-getter for Guyana with 580 runs in the regional competition.Debuting in 1996-97, he played for West Indies A and was named in the provisional squad for the 2007 World Cup. He was also a part of the Stanford Superstars squad in 2008.last_img read more

QB contest is positive for Trojans

first_imgUSC football kicked off spring practice on Tuesday, and for the first time in three years, the Trojans will be hosting a quarterback competition that is expected to turn some heads not only going into the summer, but also potentially into the fall.Replacing Cody · With Cody Kessler moving on, the Trojans must pick between redshirt junior Max Browne and redshirt freshman Sam Darnold — both of whom are more mobile than Kessler — for their next quarterback. Nick Entin | Daily TrojanWith the departure of Cody Kessler, it appears that head football coach Clay Helton, who is entering his first full season at the helm, will have to tap either fourth-year junior Max Browne or redshirt freshman Sam Darnold to start the team’s season opener against defending national champion Alabama at Jerry’s World come Sept. 3.Whether Helton elects to go with Browne or Darnold, the USC offense is going to be in good hands — perhaps even better off than it was when Kessler was under center. Kessler ended his career as one of the most statistically decorated quarterbacks in USC history and led the Trojans to its first Pac-12 South title in 2015 but was always limited by his arm strength, which also restricted the play-calling ability for Helton, who served as the team’s offensive coordinator last season.Fans always criticized former head coach and now-Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin for calling a plethora of bubble screens in Kessler’s first season behind center, which seemed to be a contributing factor to his ultimate firing. The past two seasons, we’ve seen less of it, but it has still been a go-to play call for the USC offense, especially with one of the most dangerous playmakers in college football — junior wide receiver Adoree’ Jackson — on the edge.That’s when USC would become predictable, however, and in the process, it allowed opposing defensive coordinators to simply game plan for Kessler and his offense by taking away those plays, forcing him to test his arm down the field.Take a look at the team’s loss to Washington. Against the Huskies, Kessler completed only 16 of 29 passes for 156 yards to go along with two interceptions — good enough for a dismal quarterback rating of 9.4. Granted, Washington had the best overall defense in the Pac-12 last season, but if they want to be elite in 2016, new offensive coordinator Tee Martin and the Trojans are going to need a quarterback that is able to exploit any defense on any given day or night in the fall.Fortunately for USC fans, Browne and Darnold are basically opposites of Kessler. With Browne listed at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds and Darnold at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, each of them certainly looks the part. Both of them also have rocket arms and are considerably more mobile and athletic, especially Darnold.Thus, the quarterback transition that is now taking place is actually a positive thing moving forward for the Trojans, as they move into what could be considered a new era of USC football under Helton. Call it an upgrade, if you will.Of course, the jury is still out on the intangibles that both Browne and Darnold have to offer, including how to read coverage and handle pressure in the pocket, in addition to leading and dealing with adversity, certainly in a hostile environment with limited experience at the Division I level. USC’s array of explosive weapons returning on offense, however, will surely diminish the growing pains in both the passing and the running games.Players like Jackson, Biletnikoff Award candidate and junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, and the two-headed rushing attack of senior Justin Davis and sophomore Ronald Jones II made Kessler look really efficient at times, and they are expected to do the same for their new starting quarterback.It’s already a tall order to ask a brand-new starting quarterback to learn a system with a new coaching staff and be expected to give it their best shot at the defending national champs, but it’s a test that will benefit them in the long run.Since Browne is more experienced, with Darnold redshirting last year, it’s definitely his “job to lose” — his words exactly at the team’s first practice on Tuesday.The competition will be healthy for both Browne and Darnold, but it’s also important that Helton handles it in an appropriate manner by not letting it drag on too long. As a lot of us found out the hard way a few years ago with Kiffin, a quarterback competition that extends into the early part of the regular isn’t the best of ideas.Typically, the sooner the better is the preferred practice not only for the quarterbacks, but also the team as a whole, and there’s no doubt that Helton’s final decision will define him and USC football at least for the next couple of years to come.Darian Nourian is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism.

Sergio Aguero ‘out for a month’ with hamstring injury

first_imgManchester City striker Sergio Aguero is set for a month out with a hamstring injury suffered on international duty.The 27-year-old, who scored five goals in City’s win against Newcastle last weekend, lasted just 22 minutes of Argentina’s defeat to Ecuador.”I think I’ll be a month without playing,” Aguero told TyC Sports in Buenos Aires.City’s problems increased on Friday as David Silva came off in Spain’s 4-0 win over Luxembourg with a sprained ankle.The 29-year-old midfielder hobbled off early in the first half as a result of a challenge by midfielder Lars Gerson. Spain manager Vicente del Bosque said he had no timeline on a return for Silva.Aguero could miss four Premier League games – including the first Manchester derby of the season on 25 October – and two Champions League fixtures against Sevilla. His absence leaves City with just Wilfried Bony as a recognised central striker, with youngster Kelechi Iheanacho in reserve.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
