Mikel Obi Targets Promotion with Boro as Greatest Achievement

first_imgSuper Eagles captain and UEFA Champions League winner, John Mikel Obi, has said that promotion to the Premier League with Middlesbrough would rank as one of his finest moments in football.The 31-year-old midfielder collected two Premier League titles, a Champions League, Europa League and three FA Cup winners medals with Chelsea, and joined Boro on a short-term deal in January.“If we manage to pull it (promotion) off, it would be amazing,” he said. “It would be up there as one of my greatest achievements.”Mikel Obi moved to the Riverside Stadium as a free agent after a lucrative stint in China with Tianjin Teda.Boro have lost just once in the league since his arrival and are fifth in the Championship with 12 games remaining.A drop into England’s second tier was something new for the Nigeria international, who captained his country at the 2018 World Cup and won the Africa Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles in 2013.“I’m still hungry and want to win trophies. I’m never satisfied with what I have achieved. If I was, I would just sit at home,” he told BBC Sport.“I want to achieve something with this club and that is to get this club promoted.“I love challenges and I knew coming in here would be a challenge for me, and being in the second division would be a challenge for me.“I knew this club would be pushing for promotion and managing to do that wouldn’t be easy.”With a game in hand on all four sides above them, Boro are nine points adrift of the top two and an automatic promotion spot.After 34 games they have the best defensive record in the division, however, they have laboured at the other end and scored the fewest goals of any side in the top 15.“Middlesbrough are a massive club and should be in the Premier League – it is where it belongs for me,” he said.“We still have a lot of games to play, and if we manage to win quite a few of them, who knows?“If we could get automatic promotion, fine, and if we get into the play-offs and that is how we do it, then that would be amazing as well.“We just have to keep pushing.”As for his own future beyond his short-term deal until the end of the season, Mikel was coy despite saying he felt “at home” and was “enjoying” his time on Teesside.“I want to enjoy my football and enjoy winning games with this club, these players are an amazing group of guys,” he said.“Every time we win a game you see that feeling of wanting to be in the Premier League and that is something I want to keep enjoying with them until the end of the season. And then we see where we are.”Mikel’s midfielder partner Muhamed Besic says the Nigerian has added “confidence” to the side with his mentality, composure and talent which saw him thrive among the world’s elite for more than a decade.“It is a big thing that he came to the club,” said Besic, who is on loan at Middlesbrough from Everton.“Now we have a really strong core and with Mikel coming in, he is an experienced player who has played a lot of big games in his career.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram John Mikel Obi,last_img read more

The consensus No. 1

first_img Wynne’s take? “It’s all surreal.” Just a year ago, he was a highly regarded prospect just finding his way onto the U.S. under-20 national team, but his stock skyrocketed following a superb World Youth Championship performance last summer in the Netherlands and an All-America campaign for UCLA. CARSON – Marvell Wynne had time to reflect on the past year and think about what the future holds as he headed to Philadelphia for today’s Major League Soccer SuperDraft. The 19-year-old defender, who emerged as one of the world’s most coveted outside backs, chose to forgo his junior and senior seasons at UCLA, resisted several tempting offers from European clubs, signed a developmental contract with MLS and now finds himself as the odds-on favorite to be taken first during this afternoon’s festivities. “The thing people realize,” said UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo, a former MLS midfielder, “is that his level of play will increase on th a weekly basis. … He doesn’t get overwhelmed by his environment, and his athleticism and his pace makes up for the little nuances of the game that he still needs to develop.” Said Yorks: “I think the sky’s the limit. I haven’t seen personally an athlete as good as him come through, so now it’s getting to the next environment, MLS, and seeing where the game takes him.” Wynne came out of Poway High, near San Diego, and into a starting role at UCLA, and he opened eyes with his performance last summer with the U.S. U-20s. He assisted the lone U.S. goal in an opening-round victory over tournament champion Argentina and was pivotal on a U.S. defense that shutout all three opponents in group play. Clubs from Germany, Holland, France and Belgium expressed interest, and Belgian powerhouse RSC Anderlecht offered a guaranteed contract. Wynne balked. “Marvell, he’s American through and through,” Salcedo said. “And what I mean by that is if you talk to him about the world game, he’s not too knowledgeable and savvy about what goes on over there. So that tells me that maybe this is the right spot for him.” Wynne tried his father’s sport as a child but “didn’t like it” because it was “too slow.” The senior Wynne, an outfielder for San Diego, Pittsburgh and the Chicago Cubs, provided plenty of support. “He told me to just go for it. Have fun,” Wynne said. “This is your life … this is your living now. You have to stay focused and go out there and do your best.” Talk that he’ll get his chance with Chivas excites Wynne, who trained with the club on several occasions while with the U-20s. “That would be really comfortable,” he said. “Being from UCLA, I could possibly stay in my own apartment. … It would be great. I would feel right at home.” There is still some skepticism about becoming a professional. And Wynne will readily admit that’s he’s slightly intimidated. He has had the benefit from talking with some former UCLA players who have gone onto MLS careers, including Chicago’s Chad Barrett and Leonard Griffin and Galaxy forward Mike Enfield. “They all told me it’s like going from high school to college,” Wynne said. “There’s going to be some jitters early on, but once you get into the flow of it … you just play your game.” Sean Ceglinsky, (818) 713-3607 [email protected] MLS SUPERDRAFT Area players available in MLS’s draft today in Philadelphia: Name, Pos., School Will Beard M CS Northridge Ivan Becerra F UC Santa Barbara San Fernando HS, Mission College Jonathan Bornstein F UCLA Evan Corey F UCLA L.A.

And when you talk about somebody who can adjust and play right away, his athletic qualities allow him to do that.” Bradley says he’s received several offers for the selection, and draft-eve talk had the former Chicago Fire and MetroStars coach ready to deal for two of his former players: midfielder Jesse Marsch and former UCLA forward Ante Razov. “You never know until draft day,” said Lyle Yorks, Wynne’s agent. “There could be trades, but at this point, word on the street, speculation, is he’ll be No. 1 for Chivas.” Wynne, the son of former major-league baseball star Marvell Wynne, possesses spectacular speed and athleticism, and he’s addressing his technical deficiencies. last_img read more

James Tavernier signs new contract with Rangers

first_imgJames Tavernier has become the latest Rangers player to sign an extended contract.The right-back has added a year to his current deal to commit himself to Ibrox until the summer of 2019.The 24-year-old hit 15 goals for Rangers last season after joining from Wigan and netted on Saturday as Mark Warburton’s team opened their campaign with a 2-0 League Cup win at Motherwell.Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and defender Rob Kiernan also signed extensions this week – following the lead of skipper Lee Wallace earlier this summer.And Martyn Waghorn is also expected to follow suit in the coming days.The business sees Warburton continue making long-term plans for Rangers after completing his ninth summer signing this week when he brought in Joe Dodoo from Leicester.The 21-year-old striker could make his debut when Rangers face East Stirlingshire in the League Cup on Friday night.Warburton – who will make a number of changes at Ochilview after the 2-0 win over Annan – said: “Joe is a young player with lots of qualities, lots of attributes, and if he trains well and makes an impression he will get his chance.“That has to be the case. There is no pre-agendas. If a player comes in and works hard and delivers in training, they will get their opportunity.“We’ve lost eight players and brought in nine – with maybe a couple more to come in – but there still has to be a pathway to the first team.”Even if Warburton fails to land the extra striker and centre-back he is looking for, he says his recent business has been more than satisfactory.“So far it’s been an outstanding summer in terms of getting that balance right,” he said.“We’re looking for that depth, that quality, that spark we may currently lack. But we’re delighted. The players are starting to gel and the fitness levels are starting to fall into place.“What we won’t do is just add numbers for numbers sake. They have to have something we don’t currently possess.”The Rangers boss believes one of his signings, Josh Windass, has already proven his worth.The 22-year-old former Accrington midfielder made an immediate impression on his debut against Motherwell with his driving runs and was equally as impressive against Annan.Warburton said: “If you look back at last season, not many fans would have heard of Tav, Waggy, Rob Kiernan or Wes Foderingham before they came here.“But they came and made an impression. So I think you have to give credit to our scouting department in terms of looking at our young talents.“Josh has already shown his quality. He’s got a change of pace, a dynamism in the final third and he’s clever on the ball.“So with him, I think you will see another young player – just as you will with Joe Dodoo and Jordan Rossiter – pushing really hard.“They haven’t come here to make up the numbers. Josh is a really exciting talent. We’re delighted with his progress so far. It’s early days and he knows what he has to do but we believe there is a real player there.”Meanwhile, Warburton has confirmed Matt Crooks is still three weeks away from returning to action after ankle trouble.
