The maximum any manager gets out of those Chelsea players is one year. That’s the nature of the club.center_img Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville (Picture: Getty)‘No manager can maintain that job for a long time. No manager has control. The manager should have control and be the voice of the football club. But there’s so much politics going on.’New signing Gonzalo Higuain scored two goals in Chelsea’s thrashing over Huddersfield in only his second appearance for the west London outfit.On the Argentine striker, Sarri said: ‘Higuain is improving. He wasn’t physically at the top when he arrived, because he had a back problem and wasn’t involved, so only played a few matches.‘He is a great player. Apart from the goals, he is really very suitable to play very close to Eden.’More: FootballBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar SolskjaerNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira moves Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield: Maurizio Sarri press conferenceTo view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video Play VideoLoaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%PlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 8:05FullscreenChelsea 5-0 Huddersfield: Maurizio Sarri press conferencehttps://metro.co.uk/video/chelsea-5-0-huddersfield-maurizio-sarri-press-conference-1855162/This is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Portland Trail Blazers center and “Bosnian Beast” Jusuf Nurkic broke his left Leg!

first_imgPortland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic went down with a gruesome leg injury on Monday night in the second overtime of their matchup against the Brooklyn Nets at the Moda Center, and had to be stretchered off the floor.With the Trail Blazers up two points and less than three minutes to go in the second overtime, Nurkic went to grab a rebound after a Maurice Harkless miss. Nurkic caught the ball and attempted to tip it back into the hoop. He missed the shot, and as he came down, his left leg snapped and collapsed as he fell to the floor.The injury was so jarring, the first people to reach Nurkic draped a towel over his leg to cover it from view. His leg was put in an air cast, and Nurkic was stretchered to the locker room. There was no immediate word on the details of the injury, but Nurkic will assuredly miss the remainder of the season.Blazers coach Terry Stotts called the injury “devastating.”last_img read more
