Wanyama begins field work for Tottenham

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama during training.LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 1 – Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has started field work training, although uncertainty surrounds if he could return to action this season as he recovers from a serious knee injury.According to Spurs’ official Twitter account, the Kenya international has started working out on the pitch as a part of his rehabilitation from injury he picked up on their pre-season tour of America in July. A tweet from the Premier League club read: “Victor Wanyama (knee) is starting field work training this week as he continues his recovery.”Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino had earlier expressed fears about Wanyama’s situation, telling the English media: “We are concerned about his situation. We must wait for when he sees a specialist and then we’ll see what happens.”Should the 26-year-old not be able to recover before the end of the current campaign, he could miss the Harambee Stars’ crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations clash against Ghana in March next year in Nairobi. Kenya lost their opening encounter in the competition 2-1 to Sierra Leone in Group F.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONEGAL RESIDENT WALKER REVEALS HIS CLOSE FRIENDSHIP WITH TRAGIC JIM STYNES

The unlikely pair remained close friends and would often visit eachother’s houses.Walker told Doneagldaily.com that he was heartbroken to hear of Stynes’ death.“He had a heart that was only matched by the size of the man himself. I can’t remember how tall he stood – it seemed like 6’6” but he was a gentle giant.“I am honoured to have known big Jim and I am very saddened by his passing. He was just such a down-to-earth fella and we just hit it off. “I remember him landing in my sister’s house in Derry with some friends one time and they just all slept on the floor in her front room. She still talks about that night,” said Johnny.Walker, who spent sixteen years in prison after wrongly being accused of carrying out the Birmingham bombings, was jailed in 1975.He says Jim used to often call to Donegal for a few days when he was in Ireland just to walk on the beach or go down to the local pub for a couple of pints.He said he was particularly impressed by Stynes’ sportscar in Australia which had the registration plate ‘Eire 32’.Walker said he often got and sent Christmas and St.Patrick’s Day cards to Stynes. “I remember visiting him with his family in Dublin and they were just lovely people. My thoughts are with them at this time,” he said.DONEGAL RESIDENT WALKER REVEALS HIS CLOSE FRIENDSHIP WITH TRAGIC JIM STYNES was last modified: March 21st, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:carrickfinJim StynesJohnny Walkerlast_img read more

Mbarara and UPDF sweet talk Bisaso

first_imgBisaso addresses journalists recently. File photo.FOOTBALL–After days of speculation linking former Soana FC head coach Shafic Bisaso to a possible move to Express FC, news that other clubs are interested in him have emerged.According to reliable information, Bisaso who resigned from his role as head coach of Soana FC a few weeks ago is also being touted by Mbarara City and UPDF FC.Bisaso who has seen himself loose two jobs in a space of one year having been fired from SC Villa at the start of the year has been highly tipped to replace Matia Lule at Express FC who left at the start of the season.Matia Lule left the Red Eagles sighting unpaid salaries and poor working conditions and was replaced on a temporary basis by Douglas Bamweyaya who has won himself no favours as he has not gotten the team sufficient results to suggest that he can lead them back to its glory days.Bisaso who is yet to confirm any developments is now being linked to the vacant role at army side UPDF FC who only last week announced that they had granted interim Uganda Cranes coach Moses Basena a two months leave sighting a request from FUFA.The former midfielder is also beloved to be in contention for the Mbarara City top job and with current coach Vianny Binomugisha not in good terms with the club’s top management, the rumours should not be taken lightly.It remains to be seen where Bisaso will end up but looking at the situation at all the three clubs he is being linked to, he will have a handful of work to do to change any of their fortunes.Mbarara City are ninth on the table with nine points from seven games and have not won any of their away games this season.Express are seating just above relegation having lost all their away games so far while UPDF who have collected only five points from seven games this season are second from bottom.By the time Bisaso left Soana, they had only managed a single win from the first five games which leaves a lot to be desired by any of the faithfuls I the particular clubs interested in his services.Commentslast_img read more
