Sane officially joins Bayern Munich on five year deal

first_img Bayern are reportedly paying City £44.7 million up front for the 24-year-old and the fee could reach up to £55 million based on performance and trophy related add-ons. With Sane having just one year left on his deal at the Etihad Stadium the deal suits all parties with Bayern getting an excellent player at a reduced cost, City getting decent money for a player who could have moved for free in a year and the player getting his preferred move. Loading… Bayern were linked with Sane, who had a big contribution to both Pep Guardiola’s title wins in the past two seasons, last summer but an ACL injury in the Community Shield ended any hopes of them signing him. He was ruled out with the injury for virtually the rest of the season and only returned to action as a substitute in the game against Burnley last month. On joining the German champions, where the former Schalke player is expected to double his wages to around £350,000-a-week, Sane said, “FC Bayern is a great club with big goals – and these goals suit me as well. I’m looking forward to the new challenge and can’t wait to train with the team. Pep Guardiola confirmed just two weeks ago that the German winger would be leaving Manchester City before his deal expired next summer and it was reported last week that the club and Bayern Munich had agreed a deal. On Friday the Bundesliga champions confirmed the news with a statement on their website. “FC Bayern Munich have signed Leroy Sané from Manchester City, the Germany international’s club since 2016,” the statement said. “The 24-year-old has put his name to a five-year contract until 30 June 2025 and will start preparing for the upcoming season in Munich next week.” Read Also: Liverpool close to signing Bayern Munich star “I know Hansi Flick from the U21 national team, we had a very good relationship there. I want to win as many trophies as possible with FC Bayern, and the Champions League is the top priority.” With an attacking force that includes Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, and now Sane, it’s hard to see anyone stopping Bayern in Germany, or possibly even Europe.

Viterbi launches refugee virtual exchange program

first_imgAshwin Bhumbla already knows that he wants to change the world.Viterbi students participated in a Skype conference call Friday where they were able to speak to eight refugees from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Lebanon and Syria now living in Europe. Natalie Bettendorf | Daily TrojanIn his engineering diplomacy class last semester, which was taught by USC Viterbi School of Engineering professor Najmedin Meshkati last semester, Bhumbla said that one particular idea stuck with him: the idea of being a global engineer rather than a cubicle engineer.“Of course, working at Google and Apple … It’s a dream,” said Bhumbla, a freshman majoring in industrial and systems engineering. “You’re pushing your technology, you’re making it, but then you start thinking, what’s it all for and who is it all for? … What’s the point if not everybody can have access to the old technology, the old improvements?”Being in Meshkati’s class and getting involved in USC’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders encouraged Bhumbla to attend an event hosted by Viterbi in Ronald Tutor Hall Friday morning. At the event, Meshkati and Daniel Druhora, a senior digital content producer at the Viterbi Communications and Marketing group, hosted a Skype conference with eight refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Lebanon who are all currently living in various countries in Europe.A dozen people were in attendance, including students, faculty and alumni. The conference call lasted about two hours, with refugees recounting their experiences in camps and answering questions from USC participants about what kinds of innovations would help increase the safety and effectiveness of these camps.“The purpose of this conference call is to start dialogue between USC students, faculty and potential refugees,” Meshkati said in the email invitation for the event. “This would provide a great opportunity for us to learn more about (educated) young refugee circumstances who are either sitting ‘idle’ in refugee camps or in ‘limbo’ waiting for to be processed and how we can better frame this program for both USC and refugee students.”Druhora explained that this conference was an important step for designing a class that could be launched as early as Fall 2018. The class will have 12 USC students and 12 refugee students working together to solve a problem involved in the refugee crisis with an engineering focus.“They can split up into teams, they can identify the problem and then start to work on researching, interviewing, doing the whole process,” Druhora said. “That would be the first semester. The second semester, they would start to work on the problem, they start the prototype, they start to design things … Then it would all culminate in a meeting. So like you saw today, they’re meeting them virtually. [But] at the end of the program, they would meet them in-person.”Kayla Soren, a sophomore majoring in international relations and environmental studies, also called in for the Skype conference. Even though she is currently in the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences program in Washington, D.C., she has been working with Meshkati and Druhora to launch a refugee virtual exchange project at USC. She has been helping them develop a student-driven, research-based curriculum that would encourage students to not only think about global issues, but also become active in creating necessary change.“I just felt this intense passion and I will do anything it takes to make this a success,” Soren said. “It really frustrates me, especially seeing today, like doesn’t something like this already exist? Why aren’t universities doing anything?”After the event, Bhumbla said that he was particularly struck when one refugee said that no one chooses to be a refugee.“When you start thinking about ‘Why am I at this school? What am I learning engineering for?’ the answer, I think, no matter what you’re learning, is to help people,” Bhumbla said.last_img read more

Manchester United battle back to win at Hull

first_imgJames Chester’s own goal completed Manchester United’s comeback from two goals down to win at Hull. Chester gave the hosts the lead with a volley, before David Meyler’s shot deflected in after 12 minutes.But United’s Chris Smalling headed in, before Wayne Rooney thumped United level from more than 20 yards, his 150th Premier League goal for the club. Ex-Old Trafford man Chester headed into his own net in the second half, before United’s Antonio Valencia was sent off.In coming from behind, it is the fifth consecutive win for David Moyes’ team – the first time that has happened since he took charge. Hull had conceded just three goals in their previous eight matches at KC Stadium but folded under pressure from United. Steve Bruce has now gone 19 league games without a win as manager against his old club.It looked very different when his side were two goals up inside 13 minutes. First, Alex Bruce rose above Patrice Evra to win the ball from Tom Huddlestone’s corner, with Chester volleying in from a couple of yards.Soon after, Meyler lobbed into the area for Yannick Sagbo and, after the visitors failed to clear, Meyler’s mis-hit shot deflected in off Jonny Evans. Minutes later, United halved the deficit when Smalling glanced in a header from Rooney’s free-kick.Tigers goalkeeper Allan McGregor pulled off a fine save from Tom Cleverley’s curling shot as Hull came under heavy pressure. But after 26 minutes, Moyes’ side moved level when Rooney’s attempted through ball was blocked by Curtis Davies, and the United man took a touch before thumping past McGregor.last_img read more

Clippers’ Jamal Crawford happy to stay after NBA trading deadline

first_img“Yeah, I saw it,” Crawford said. “The fans are unbelievable. The fans truly are unbelievable. I mean, when I’m in the game and I see that one person that has No. 11 on and the one person that’s rooting for me, that’s the thing you kind of, not kind of, but … not that you necessarily play for it but, you know what I mean? It’s like, you really appreciate it.”Rivers candidly talks defenseClippers coach Doc Rivers typically practices diplomacy when talking about his team. Certainly, he’s no Phil Jackson, who was quite the opposite during his coaching days with the Lakers.But Rivers was very forthcoming this week when he was asked about the defensive play of his team. The Clippers in 2013-14 allowed 101 points per game, 14th in the league. This season they are allowing 100.7 points. That’s a tad less, but it ranks them 21st, tied with Toronto.Rivers believes his defense was superior in ‘13-’14. “I think we were better last year defensively,” he said. “I think we’re a better offensive team this year, but I think we’re worse defensively. And what I do like, in certain games, there has been proof that we can be a really good defensive team. And I just don’t like how inconsistent we’ve been defensively.“I don’t know if we’re overall worse or better, but I know we’re far more inconsistent defensively this year than we were last year.”Rivers pointed to the 110-95 victory on Feb. 11 over Houston as proof of his team’s defensive capabilities. The Rockets shot just 39.1 percent from the field. Even worse, the Clippers harassed them into a 9-for-45 (20 percent) performance from 3-point range. And that was without the services of the injured Blake Griffin.“They’re a great offensive team and we took their 3s away, so we’ve proven it,” Rivers said. “But we have not been consistent with it and that’s a concern.”Griffin: This is not an injuryGriffin sustained a broken left knee cap in the final game of the 2009-10 exhibition season and missed all of what was supposed to be his rookie season. He had played in all but four regular-season games the next four-plus seasons until missing the past three games with a staph infection in his right elbow that required surgery.Interestingly, Griffin doesn’t call this an injury.“That was an injury,” he said of the broken knee cap. “I wouldn’t really call this an injury. This is an unfortunate timing thing, an infection. I guess it’s a serious thing, like I said. But not really injured.“That’s kind of what hurts the most about it, having to miss time like this for that. But to miss eight, 10, 12 games is nothing compared to 82.”Griffin figures to a minimum of 12 games with this non-injury injury. When Jamal Crawford saw a group of reporters heading his way in the Clippers’ locker room before their game Thursday against San Antonio, he had some fun.“I thought I got traded,” he joked, alluding to the rush toward him as soon as the locker room was opened.Crawford, the Clippers’ valuable and popular sixth man, was again mentioned in trade rumors as the NBA trading deadline neared and passed Thursday afternoon without the Clippers making a move. It’s been a regular occurrence for Crawford during much of his fine career.More than anything, Crawford expressed appreciation at the outpouring of support he witnessed on Twitter from fans who were peeved that his name was even being mentioned.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
