Juve s problems at full-back have led to that interest being rekindled in a player who can play on both flanks. With Allegri telling a press conference that Patrice Evra is considering what to do about his future, the Bianconeri are looking increasingly thin in both roles, and De Sciglio would be an ideal solution. Now 24 years old, he has been part of the Milan first team since 2011 when then-coach Allegri handed him his debut in a Champions League group-stage home game against Viktoria Plzen . Since then he has made a total of 124 appearances for the Rossoneri , during which he has shown an ability to contribute to the attack when necessary, although he struggles to cross the ball well if deployed on the left. According to WhoScored .com , De Sciglio has connected with an average of 39.6 passes per game over his career, completing 81.

It was the header I scored in the Champions League final in 2009. We were 1-0 up and that goal killed the game. Video of Ost90DnkjOA Which is more important: A wonder goal of individual brilliance or a deciding goal in a final? Always the deciding goal. What use is a goal of brilliance if you do not win the competition? What’s the most important trophy you’ve won? At Barcelona we want to win everything. At the start of the season there is an expectation that we can win everything, we try not to prioritise or make one trophy more important than another. When Coach spoke to Ronaldo , he spoke of the “big mutual respect” between the two of you. How do you view Ronaldo? Has playing at the same time as another all-time great motivated you? There is a mutual respect. I view him as a great player who has achieved great things because that is exactly what he is.

The 23-year-old has been another Bundesliga standout for years, and a move abroad has seemed likely since last summer. Here's a look at some of his highlights: Kolasinac has long been known as a top-notch defensive full-back, but he's added incredible offensive abilities to his game this season, providing plenty of assists and even scoring the odd goal for Schalke . He's a high-energy player with a very impressive work ethic, the kind of piece Conte loves to work with. In many ways, he's reminiscent of Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner , who was always a favourite of the former Bianconeri boss. Unfortunately for Chelsea, it seems the Italian champions are in the driver's seat for Kolasinac . Per Italian outlets Mediaset and Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Het Nieuwsblad 's Vince Van Genechten ), Juventus already have a deal in place, and the Schalke man has made up his mind: Kolasinac hasn't signed a deal yet, and as long as that's the case, Chelsea and Liverpool have a chance.

The Doctor Strange theme is memorable, moving and yes, magical. I dont know what the movie would be without it.” And it probably helps that Giacchino himself was a huge fan of the comics before he got the gig. “I was really excited when I got the call to score Doctor Strange since I had been a fan as a kid. Once I saw the film, I was impressed at how well the character had stood the test of time," he said . "This rendition of Doctor Strange gave me the opportunity to bring to life all of the crazy things I heard in my head while reading those comic books growing up in the 70s.” Doctor Strange: Benedict Wong on the film's diversity Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong has praised Marvel's recent efforts towards diversifying their movies, saying that the new film - that's now in UK cinemas - "champions" diversity. Speaking to journalists at a round table interview, Wong (whose character is also called Wong) said that "This piece really champions diversity, for me - it's got two strong female leads, Mads [Mikkelsen], Chiwetel [Ejiofor] , then posh Benedict [Cumberbatch] and not-so-posh Benedict [still Cumberbatch].

Max Miller of Metro reported the Frenchman will not be available to play against Bologna after rumours linked the player with a switch to Valencia or United. Former team-mate Rio Ferdinand also added fuel to the fire as he publicly addressed the rumours of Evra returning to the Premier League giants: Evra was a hugely popular figure at the Theatre of Dreams, winning five Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson. He would be a strong squad addition for Mourinho, as the Portuguese looks to add experience to his defensive options. However, Evra did start to struggle with the pace of the English game in his final season at United, and a switch to La Liga might suit him at this stage of his career.

DIY can be the centerpiece of the NXT tag division as The Revival moves on to either Raw or SmackDown . Both of those brands' champions would benefit from feuding with the smashmouth kings. WWE is going to recognize what it has in The Revival and promote the duo in the next few months. In the women's division, meanwhile, Kay will make more of an impact than her friend Peyton Royce over time. Royce is the better worker, but Kay has shown more personality and sizzle. Her glamorous entrance in front of the Australian crowd was proof of that. Royce will slide into more of a sidekick eventually. Kay is the bigger star of that pair.

Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Wilfred Ndidi from Genk on Tuesday. News that the deal had been done for the 20-year-old came via a club release , with the midfielder penning a five-and-a-half-year contract with the Premier League champions. Ndidi arrives at a Foxes side enduring a difficult defence of their crown. Claudio Ranieris men have progressed into the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League, although theyre languishing down in 14th in the Premier League table and facing up to the prospect of a relegation scrap. One of the key factors in their regression was the summer departure of NGolo Kante, who was so impressive as the hub of the team in 2015-16. His void has left an ominous chasm to fill; its a challenge Ndidi will face with the Foxes. As we can see here, its evident that the Nigeria international possesses plenty of the attributes needed to thrive in the Premier League: Like Kante, Ndidis bread and butter is his defensive work.

Steven, on a roll, leans closer and whispers into Shlomo's ear the news that his good friend, Mitchell, was going to be getting married in three weeks. Shlomo, from a deep sleep, sits bolt upright and looks right through me. "I'll perform the ceremony," he says. "Me! I'll marry you!" If I had been Saul on a horse, I would have been knocked off by now, but I wasn't. It was just me, sitting on a bed with Shlomo and Steven in a mid-priced, mid-town Boston hotel room, 5,504 miles from Jerusalem. "Um... Shlomo," I say. "We already have a Rabbi". Shlomo's eyes open wider. "Is he straight?" "Well... a lot straighter than you, Shlomo." And with that, Shlomo smiles, closes his eyes, falls back, and goes to sleep. Steven and I stand, turn out the lights, and continue on our way. Mitch Ditkoff is a poet , storyteller and the Co-Founder of Idea Champions .

Ranchers then repurposed some of these wells for irrigation. But they walked away, leaving the wells subject to cracks, corrosion and other natural damage. The groundwater district has found about a dozen such unplugged wells, including several that are flowing. Landowners — some of whom live elsewhere and own small parcels — are unwilling or unable to pay for plugging, which would probably cost hundreds of thousands of dollars more than typical jobs. Cash-strapped itself, the district has asked the Texas Railroad Commission to clean them up. But that agency, which jointly regulates and champions oil and gas production, says it can’t plug most of them — even if oilmen originally drilled them. A bird's eye eye view of Boehmer Lake.GOOGLE EARTH “The Railroad Commission will take action on any well to plug or repair it, when we have evidence the well is an abandoned oil or gas well,” said Ramona Nye, an agency spokeswoman.

Strangely, the concept of Enzo attending the sensitivity course works as a meta joke on WWE's Attitude Era tone - Amore - trying to find its place in 2016's PG product. WWE made their thoughts on the matter clear: Rusev and Jinder beat up the Attitude Era at the end of the course. CEDRIC ALEXANDER BEAT NOAM DAR Cedric Alexander and Noam Dar fought over Alicia Fox in this Cruiserweight match, which was notable for two reasons: 1) the reactions Cedric got from the crowd for his moveset - notable in that, he actually got reactions (not the norm for Cruiserweights so far) - and... 2) former TNA and Ring of Honor champion Austin Aries making his Raw debut. Because he's out with injury right now, he was only there to reprise his 205 Live commentary role, but you can tell he's impressing the right people backstage with this kind of exposure. 8-MAN TAG Foley unveiled new red tag team championship belts to Sheamus and Cesaro, an early Christmas gift that irked former champions The New Day.
