Press Association The 26-year-old was sidelined for nearly nine months after a knee operation last December and although he has made 16 appearances this season his manager knows he needs time. “Lucas will tell you himself he still has a bit to go,” said the Northern Irishman. “When you are out for a year the medics and physiotherapists will tell you to put that time on again before players are back to their best.” Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva is set to make his 200th appearance for the club on Monday night against West Brom but manager Brendan Rodgers believes it will be some months before the Brazilian is back to his best. He went on: “He is someone that is working ever so hard at his fitness. “He has shown a great determination and work ethic to get back to that level and his recent performances have shown he is well on his way to that recovery.” While the return of Lucas in his familiar defensive midfield role has brought some solidity to the team it is the fluidity of the team which has impressed Rodgers recently. “We are showing flexibility in our game,” added the Reds boss. “We know the philosophy and how we want to work but it is important you are pragmatic and you can adapt. “The players have shown that and that is great for us going forward because as we progress we need that going forward.”

ARCADIA, Calif. (March 22, 2015)–A winner of a record 21 Breeders’ Cup races and considered by many to be the best big-money rider in American Racing, jockey Mike Smith figures to be a longshot to win his second career Santa Anita Derby with up and coming Bolo, who will try to turn the tables on top-rated Derby contender Dortmund in the 78th running of the West Coast’s most important Kentucky Derby prep on Saturday, April 4.Dating back to Gallahadion in 1940, the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby has produced a total of 17 winners of the Run for the Roses, including two out of the last three–I’ll Have Another in 2012 and California Chrome last year.Trained by Carla Gaines and owned by Golden Pegasus Racing, Inc. and Earle Mack, Bolo, a 3-year-old Kentucky-bred colt by Temple City, had won two out of his first three starts with Smith on grass, including the one mile Eddie Logan Stakes on Dec. 27, prior to running a big third, beaten only 1 ¾ lengths, by Dortmund in the Grade II San Felipe Stakes on March 7, which was Bolo’s first-ever start on natural dirt.Although Smith, who’s lone Kentucky Derby win came with longshot Giacomo in 2005, took off of Bolo to ride Ocho Ocho Ocho to an eighth place finish in the San Felipe, he’s more than happy to be back aboard for his next engagement on April 4.Q. You saw Bolo run a big third behind Dortmund in the Grade II San Felipe on March 7. Can he improve enough in the Santa Anita Derby to turn the tables on Dortmund?A. “We’re sure hoping so. He had a slight tendency to get tired the other day. He made a beautiful run, looked like he was going to be a big part of it, but he just got tired. He missed close to three weeks of training in between the Eddie Logan and the San Felipe, so he definitely had a license to need that race and it should move him forward, but you just hope it moves him forward enough.”Q. He’s shown good natural speed on dirt and turf. How important is that to you?A. “It’s good to have a horse that has tactical speed like that, who can put you in the race early and put you in a good spot. It always helps. The first time he ran, he got away real bad. He used to be a little anxious in the gate but he’s gotten a lot better about it and he’s been breaking really well.”Q. He’s by the Dynaformer stallion Temple City and he’s out of a Chief Seattle mare. Does he have the pedigree to be a top-tier Derby candidate?A. “I really think he does. I don’t think distance will be a problem for him whatsoever. Like I said, he got a little tired the other day from missing training but every time I’ve ever ridden him, he’s galloped out like a monster. I don’t think the distance will be a problem, I think it will be a plus.”Q. If Bolo runs a big second or third in the Santa Anita Derby, would you commit to him for the Kentucky Derby, or would you wait?A. “I ride the Arkansas Derby (April 11) after that as well, so I’ll have to see how Far Right (by Notional and trained by Ron Moquett) runs and how Bolo runs in the Santa Anita Derby and go from there. As you know, things can change a lot in these prep races so you don’t want to commit right now. If you commit now and they decide not to go (to the Derby), you may have cut yourself off another horse, so you just want them all to keep taking steps forward and it should be no problem.”Q. If you can take a step back, and assess things as a horseplayer, who’s the best 3-year-old you’ve seen this year?A. “I think Dortmund is the best 3-year-old because he hasn’t missed a beat. He’s the only one that’s been marching straight through. He hasn’t missed training. He hasn’t missed anything. I think he’ll want every bit of a mile and a quarter and he’s already proven he likes Churchill Downs with the way he won there (7 ¾ length one mile allowance win on Nov. 29). American Pharoah ran really well at Oaklawn the other day. I’m not sure how much was in that race and it was his first race back, but he surely can’t be as tight as Dortmund is right now, so I’d have to give the edge to Dortmund.”A native of Roswell, New Mexico, Smith, who will turn 50 on Aug. 10, won the 2007 Santa Anita Derby with Tiago and he was also the regular rider of legendary 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta. SMITH OPTIMISTIC, SAYS ‘EVERY TIME I’VE RIDDEN HIM, HE’S GALLOPED OUT LIKE A MONSTER’
Henry scored a record 51 goals in 123 appearances for France, winning not only the 1998 World Cup but also Euro 2000, while starring for almost a decade at Arsenal before claiming the treble with Barcelona in 2009.“I hope it will be an advantage,” Henry said on Wednesday, when asked how his success as a player would serve him as a manager.“But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy because of that. I think it will help. But there are some great managers who haven’t played football, and vice versa.”The former striker will be joined at Monaco by Joao Carlos Valado Tralhao, under-23 coach at Benfica, and Patrick Kwame Ampadu, coach at Arsenal’s academy and father of Chelsea player Ethan Ampadu.Henry graduated from Monaco’s youth system and made his debut for the club in 1994.“To have the chance to come back is incredible,” he said.“When the offer came it seemed logical to me, it was the choice of my heart. You know my fondness for London, but here is where I started.”Henry’s first game in charge will be against Strasbourg in the league on Saturday with a must-win Champions League tie against Club Brugge four days later.However, he was reluctant to look too far ahead with Monaco languishing 18th in the league after just one win in 12 matches in all competitions this season.“For me, a coach is supposed to make people better first and foremost,” Henry said.“Improving players for me is already a success, but then you have different types of success.“How do you define success? It’s difficult. At a big European club success is winning the Champions League. At other clubs, it’s winning the league or helping players get better.“Long term, it’s really far away when I know the situation we’re in here and what we need to do.”Jardim guided Monaco to the Ligue 1 title in 2017 but was sacked last week after a string of poor results.Club vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said there were no fixed goals for Henry, who follows former international team-mates Didier Deschamps, Zinedine Zidane and Patrick Vieira into management.“We haven’t set any objectives for Thierry Henry. Given we’re 18th in the table today, it’s difficult to set an objective,” said Vasilyev.“We need to get out of the relegation zone for a start. We’re not thinking about the end of the season, we’re only thinking about getting out of this difficult situation.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thierry Henry gives his first press conference as Monaco manager after taking over from Leonardo Jardim © AFP / Valery HACHEMONACO, Monaco, Oct 17 – Thierry Henry hopes his illustrious playing days will help underpin a successful career in management as he embarks on his first top job in club football at Monaco.The 41-year-old French World Cup winner, who had been working as an assistant to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez since 2016, returned to the club where he began his professional career after replacing Leonardo Jardim.

Read Next Asi Taulava now can heave a sigh of relief.Filipino-Tongan basketball player Pauliasi “Asi” Taulava has scored against the Bureau of Internal Revenue, as the Court of Tax Appeals acquitted him of P9.55-million tax evasion charges.In a 41-page decision dated Nov. 3, the CTA First Division said BIR failed to prove that it properly served the final letter of demand informing Taulava of his tax assessment for the year 2004.ADVERTISEMENT The prosecution did not present the registry receipt issued by the Bureau of Posts or the registry return card as proof that Taulava was mailed the assessment notice, which he denied receiving.The failure to give due process to Taulava “gives rise to the conclusion that the accused is under no obligation to pay for the subject taxes,” read the decision penned by Associate Justice Erlinda P.
