Solskjaer makes Ronaldo Man Utd admission

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he would welcome the opportunity to add “best player in the world” Cristiano Ronaldo to his ranks at Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo has issued a message to Juventus fans The Red Devils boss has been asked to select dream signings from those he once played alongside at Old Trafford. He was set the task of making those choices from the legendary 1999 Treble-winning side that included a host of household names. Solskjaer feels that the likes of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes would add important qualities to his engine room in the present, but also concedes that Ronaldo – who joined United in 2003 and is still going strong at Juventus – would be impossible to pass up. He told ShivNadarFoundation when set the Treble poser: “That’s not fair, that’s very unfair. I can only have one? “I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn’t even play the final (in the Champions League against Bayern Munich). Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two. “It’s unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the best player in the world of course. “I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield.” Loading… Solskjaer is currently in the process of piecing together recruitment plans at the Theatre of Dreams, with United being heavily linked with big-money moves for Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho. Whoever the Red Devils decide to bring in, their manager is eager to ensure that there are no “rotten apples” on their books. Solskjaer added on the qualities he is looking for from those fortunate enough to be given a chance to represent one of the biggest teams on the planet: “I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United. “I wouldn’t be able to look at myself if I didn’t know I’d given everything for my team-mates and my manager. “That’s what I also now look for in players that we sign or we bring up from the youth team. You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten. “So for me it’s about building a team that will reflect me and my coaching staff’s personalities and views. Of course there are standards because we want to win. We are in the business to win. “But the first step to be a Man United player and person, you have to be humble enough to know you have to work hard. Never give in and always do your best, 100 percent effort is required every day and don’t think you are better than you are. read also:‘I could’ve been like Messi, Ronaldo but didn’t feel like it’ “You still have to play with that confidence at the same time.

Kyle Kuzma: I am capable of being Lakers’ third superstar

first_img“I’ve never been a ball-dominant guy,” Kuzma said. “I’ve always played off the ball. It is going to be a little bit easier, going to have a lot of open shots. It is my job to trust my summer workouts and what I’ve done. Just breathe, focus and knock those shots down, because I’m going to be open.”The Lakers entered last season with high hopes after signing James in free agency but finished 10th in the Western Conference with a 37-45 record. Los Angeles missed the playoffs for the sixth straight year but made significant changes to its roster during free agency. Jrue Holiday discusses Pelicans trading Anthony Davis to Lakers, drafting Zion Williamson Kyle Kuzma is confident he will be the Lakers’ third star on a roster that looks much different this season. Los Angeles made a blockbuster trade sending several young core players (Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart) to the Pelicans for six-time All-Star Anthony Davis. There’s no doubt now that Davis and veteran LeBron James will lead the Lakers, but Kuzma believes he can step in and be the third star that L.A. will need after Kawhi Leonard signed with the Clippers. “I don’t feel no pressure, but I believe that I am capable of being that superstar,” Kuzma told ESPN. “I put a lot of work in. My progress through my journey shows that I can be there. I developed every single year, dating back to college, and I don’t see that development stunting at all.”Kuzma acknowledged he “didn’t shoot the ball well” last season, but still managed to average 18.7 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 45.6% from the field and 30.3% from 3-point range.
