David Moyes hails Real Madrid as the best team he has ever faced

first_img He created the third goal for Karim Benzema but was unable to get on the score sheet and some sections of the home crowd were disappointed with his performance. CET The former Manchester United manager masterminded a win over Barcelona earlier this month, but he was unable to follow it up with another miracle in the Spanish capital. “We had that platform [through the early goal], but we couldn’t keep it. I know we lost but I really enjoyed my experience against one of the top sides in the world.” “On another day he will score because he is such a good player. He has nothing to worry about, he’s an exceptional player. Madrid didn’t need his goals today, but when they do need them he’ll be there.” Finally, Moyes revealed that Carlos Vela had to be taken off in the first half due to a “medial meniscus” problem, adding that a scan will determine how long the Mexican striker will be out for. David Moyes said the current crop of Real Madrid players may be the best side he has ever come up against after his Real Sociedad side were beaten 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon. 01/02/2015 “The way [Madrid] played in the first half may be as good as I’ve come up against,” he said in his post match press conference. Sam Marsdencenter_img But while crediting Los Blancos, Moyes also admitted some frustration towards the way his side defended. “I was a little disappointed with my defenders,” he continued. “We needed to be more aware, but we were up against top quality players and that quality was able to shine through in the end. Moyes wasn’t the only British interest around the game, with Gareth Bale playing 90 minutes for Madrid. “Bale’s a top player,” Moyes continued. “You know the important thing when you have those players is that you encourage them. However, Moyes doesn’t think the Welshman should overly concerned with a bit of criticism. Upd. at 00:48 La Real had taken a shock second minute lead, although it didn’t last for long as James Rodriguez headed in Marcelo’s cross almost instantly to level the scores. “They forced us wide, they were difficult to get close to and they made it really hard for us.”last_img read more

When youngsters of India are inspired by our best athletes: Mahesh Bhupathi

first_imgWhen can India get Olympics Gold MedalAs the Olympics draw near again, the question once again looms large – “Are we going to win a gold medal?” After which everyone will simply jump on the “one billion people and not one gold medal” bandwagon. There are countless problems we face,When can India get Olympics Gold MedalAs the Olympics draw near again, the question once again looms large – “Are we going to win a gold medal?” After which everyone will simply jump on the “one billion people and not one gold medal” bandwagon. There are countless problems we face and innumerable reasons why we are at the bottom of the sports world.Rather than diving into all the “wrongs”, I want to focus on the positives and the few bright spots. Inherently, as a country, India has been somewhat competitive in disciplines that combine skill, strategy and physical power. Tennis, badminton, archery, shooting and boxing are some of the sports where, if we do things right, we have a realistic chance of winning. We have been competitive in the junior levels of these disciplines and it is just a matter of time before we extend the athletes, development process to the senior levels. FROM OUR FILESAUGUST 31, 1984 Indian Sport: An Olympian Fiasco India doesn’t figure in the final medal tally at Los Angeles.”I think Indians have a tendency to over-react in any game.” Prakash Padukone, former badminton player, in 1981Norman Pritchard bagged two silver medals for the country in1900, when India first participated in the Olympics.Unfortunately, in sports that depend purely on physical power, we are light years behind. Swimming, track and field, and gymnastics have become more of a “science” now and we haven’t been able to keep pace. We still follow archaic training methods, hence we are nowhere.advertisementThe word “impossible” is not in my vocabulary, but to be able to succeed, we have to start at the grassroot level and monitor everything from nutrition to physical development. Athletes have to be nurtured in a very controlled environment.Thomas Gaines said, “Faith is mighty, but action with faith is mightier.” That is exactly the premise behind setting up the Mittal Champions Trust, funded by Lakshmi Mittal, in which I am a trustee. It focuses solely on winning the country a gold medal.The conventional way is to develop kids from the ground up. However, due to the time constraint, we are following a different model. We have handpicked the best, who have the ability to win us a gold, and we hope their success will inspire others, particularly youngsters, to soar to great heights.It is said that a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step, and that is what this initiative is all about. In order to change the face of sports in our country, we have to join hands and make a collective effort to attain a common goal. It is this sort of teamwork that will help us win many medals at the Olympics. As Marian Edelman rightly said, “We must not, in trying to think how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make, which, over time, add up to a big difference we often cannot foresee.”(The writer is a tennis ace who has won six Grand Slam titles.)last_img read more
