Manuel Pellegrini backs Wilfried Bony to be ‘the player we need’ for Man City next season

Manuel Pellegrini backs Wilfried Bony to be ‘the player we need’ for Man City next season

first_imgManuel Pellegrini is convinced Wilfried Bony will become “the player we need” despite the striker’s struggles following his move to Manchester City.Bony has started only twice for City since leaving Swansea in January for an initial £25million fee which could yet rise to £28million, but the Ivorian notched a late clincher against his former club on Sunday during City’s 4-2 victory.And City manager Pellegrini feels Bony will justify the club’s huge investment in him next season after the 26-year-old’s difficult settling-in period at the Etihad Stadium.“He was very unlucky maybe this year when we bought him because he started by going to the Africa Cup of Nations and he came back with a lot of games in his body,” Pellegrini said.“After that he had an important injury in his ankle and his knee in the same leg, so he stopped for about three or four weeks.“After that we won five games in a row and I didn’t want to make changes during this moment.“But it’s very important for him to play the minutes he can, first last week against Queens Park Rangers and now he has participated with a goal at Swansea.“I am absolutely sure we bought the player that we need and that he will be important in our future.” Wilfried Bony 1last_img read more

They can’t be but they are! Eight players much younger than you think

They can’t be but they are! Eight players much younger than you think

first_img 8 8 1. Helder Postiga is still only 32 years old! To see seven more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – If Cristiano Ronaldo could prompt hope that Portugal might win a major tournament, the presence of Helder Postiga as the first choice striker would immediately rain on that parade. Postiga never really lived up to the reputation he engineered in his early years at Porto, and a disastrous spell with Tottenham in 2003 – one goal all season – tainted his career severely. His move to Indian Super League side Atletico de Kolkata this summer made it 10 clubs in 14 years, including three loan stints as he struggled for both form and fitness. 71 caps for Portugal might look like a reasonable international career, but that is testament to the national side’s paucity of top class strikers to complement Ronaldo. 2. Giovani dos Santos is still only 26 years old! To see more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – Another protégée that failed to live up to the hype, he was – like Bojan – unfortunate to come through Barcelona’s academy ranks at the same time as a certain Lionel Messi. When Tottenham snapped him up in 2008 for just €6m it was seen as a real coup for the north Londoners. However, after three ineffective loan spells – including one with Ipswich Town – Spurs decided to cut their losses in 2012 and he was sold to Mallorca. Another player whose success has been confined predominantly to the international game, Dos Santos became the latest star name to join the MLS last week when he moved to LA Galaxy. 8 5. Charlie Adam is just 29! To see more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – Adam is still arguably at the peak of his powers, but to think he is still the right side of 30 is remarkable. After spending six years in relative obscurity playing for Rangers, Ross County and St Mirren in Scotland, he rose to prominence with Blackpool. After helping them into the Premier League and starring as an expansive goalscoring midfielder in the Seasiders’ solitary top-flight campaign, Liverpool came calling. It didn’t work out as hoped at Anfield, but he seems to have found his feet again at Stoke if his 60-yard strike against Chelsea last season is anything to go by. Should still have another five years in him a reasonable level. 7. Ayegbeni Yakubu is apparently just 32! To see one more player who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – Another player who can constitute the ‘journeyman’ tag, Yakubu came back into the English spotlight last season when he joined Reading on a short-term basis and helped them reach the FA Cup semi-finals. He enjoyed prolific Premier League spells with Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Everton and Blackburn before departing for China in 2012. The fact he made his debut in 1998 highlights the longevity of his career, and amazingly he’s the same age as Franck Ribery. 6. He’s won it all, but Thomas Muller is only 25! To see more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – The fact Muller is still 25, considering what he has achieved in the game, is quite astonishing. He is already considered a leader at both club and international level and the 10 World Cup goals to his name means compatriot Miroslav Klose’s record of 16 is under serious threat. His style – an enduring ability to be in the right place at the right time and insatiable appetite to be in the penalty area – could allow him to thrive at this level for another decade, too. 8. Alexandre Pato is only 25! – Eh? 25? A real head scratcher, Pato is remarkably only halfway through his 20s, despite seemingly entering the twilight years of his career when he returned home to Brazil in 2013. He was snapped up by AC Milan when he was just 17, becoming an instant hit in Italy when he scored on his debut against Napoli. After fading away, a return to form with Sao Paulo last season has triggered rumours of a move back to Europe. Either way – to put it in context – he’s the same age as Jordan Henderson. 4. John Obi Mikel is still only 28! To see more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – The man who once sparked an acrimonious legal battle between Chelsea and Manchester United for his signature has somewhat flattered to deceive. Still, Jose Mourinho clearly trusts him and he is now the Blues second longest serving player after captain John Terry. It would appear that the Nigerian has spurned the prime years of his career warming the Chelsea bench, but at just 28 there is still time left to pursue new challenges. 3. Phil Jones is just 23 years old! To see more players who are younger than you’d think, click the arrow above! – Granted he looks a bit older, Jones is another player whose experience vastly exceeds his age. While his development has arguably been shackled by his own versatility, Jones has been to a European Championships and a World Cup during his relatively fledgling England career. He’s also, alarmingly, one of the more senior members of the Manchester United defensive unit. Do you ever look at a player and think: how long has he been around?Tottenham misfit Helder Postiga probably fits that bill, and the Portuguese striker added another club to his expanding curriculum vitae on Wednesday by joining Indian Super League side Altetico de Kolkata.Postiga, like many other players, blew us away with how tender he was in age considering his seemingly endless career.To pay homage to the players that apparently fail to grow old, talkSPORT has composed a shortlist of eight names whose relative age is dumbfounding.Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see which players make our shortlist. 8 8 8 8 8last_img read more

Later, the aircraft will be sent to Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., for an assessment of their fighting capabilities. Two Boeing X-45A aircraft, smaller than the X-45C, have flown more than 50 flight-test missions at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards. Assembly of the first two X-45C vehicles is under way in St. Louis, Mo. The X-47B aircraft are expected to be assembled in Palmdale. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week DARPA, the agency that spurred the development of the F-117A stealth fighter, has been working with The Boeing Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. to design, build and demonstrate full-scale aircraft and mission control elements. A common operating system for the aircraft is being developed by the two companies in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. The program’s goal is to develop unmanned aircraft that can take on very dangerous missions, such as attacking enemy radar and missile sites, and very dull missions, such as surveillance missions that last for hours. “The interest in the J-UCAS concept, combined with our joint team’s notable successes, have given us the opportunity to rapidly transition the program to the services,” said Michael S. Francis, J-UCAS program director at DARPA, in an announcement of the transition. The new program manager is Navy Capt. Ralph N. Alderson, current program manager of the X-45 program. EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE – Management of an experimental robot bomber program is shifting ahead of schedule from a Pentagon research agency to the U.S. Air Force and Navy. The early transition for the Joint Unmanned Combat Air Systems program is a major success and an indicator of the program’s importance, Pentagon officials said in an announcement of the shift. “J-UCAS’ unique combat versatility will change our perspective of air-power projection in much the same way that stealth did when it was introduced over 30 years ago,” said Tony Tether, director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Managed by DARPA since October 2003, the program now will be run by a joint Air Force/Navy office at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, supported by personnel at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md., and other Navy facilities. last_img read more
