Eypt Star Mohammed Salah Scores Twice As Liverpool Beat Red Star

 

 

Mohamed Salah scored twice to reach a half-century of Liverpool goals in a comfortable victory over Red Star Belgrade, as the Reds went top of Champions League Group C.

It was a dominant display from the hosts, Roberto Firmino firing in Andy Robertson’s cut-back on 20 minutes.

Salah got his first just before the break then added a second to reach an impressive landmark by converting a penalty won by Sadio Mane.

Mane then slotted a fourth goal with 10 minutes to go, having missed another penalty just moments before.

Goalscorers aside, Xherdan Shaqiri proved influential for the hosts – an excellent through ball to Robertson helped set up Firmino’s opener and it was the Swiss player’s flick that then assisted Salah’s first goal.

Firmino, one of five players back in the starting line-up after a depleted Reds side narrowly beat Huddersfield in the league on Saturday, marked his return with his 13th goal in 18 Champions League appearances for the club and his 10th in eight games at Anfield.

Mane was also bright – he linked up well with Salah on numerous occasions and earned his side’s first penalty when he got an arm in the face from Red Star captain Filip Stojkovic.

He made up for missing the second penalty – won when El Fardou Ben handled in the area – by sliding in to poke into the bottom corner to make it 4-0, before substitute Adam Lallana was denied a fifth from close range.

For the visitors, Srdan Babic wasted an opportunity from a set-piece when he fired over the bar but Liverpool were dominant throughout and never looked like conceding.

Red Star, bottom of the group with one point from three games, were banned from selling tickets to supporters for the game at Anfield after incidents during and after their team’s play-off round tie away to RB Salzburg on 29 August.

Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Tennis Coach, Demands 20% For Life

Published

on

The tennis coach who began working with Naomi Osaka back when she was 13 claims her father signed a contract promising him 20% of her career earnings … and now he’s coming to collect.

The man behind the lawsuit is Christophe Jean — who says Naomi’s father, Leonard Francois, hired him to work with Naomi and his other daughter, Mari, back in 2011.

Jean says Francois couldn’t pay his rates at the time, so they struck a deal in which Jean agreed to accept 20% of Naomi and Mari’s tennis prize money and endorsement deals forever.

That’s not a typo … Jean says he has a copy of the contract where Francois agrees that the term of the deal is “indefinite.” It’s included in Jean’s suit, filed in state court in Florida.

Of course, Naomi — now 21 years old — has blossomed into a tennis superstar, currently ranked #1 in the world … and famously beat Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.

ccording to the official WTA website, she’s made more than $10.8 MILLION during her career — and that’s not including endorsement money.

So, Jean wants his cut — at least $2 million — which is why he’s suing Naomi, Mari and Leonard.

The other possible issue … can a parent promise a cut of a minor child’s future adult earnings? And, can a judge enforce such a contract?

It’s not exactly cut and dry. We’re looking into it.

Ronaldo was superb for Juventus on Tuesday night, March 12, scoring three goals against Atletico Madrid which sent the Old Lady to the quarterfinal of the Champions League.

And after scoring the third goal, Ronaldo is said to have mocked Diego Simeone with a crotch-grabbing celebration in front of the travelling fans as emotions ran away with him on the night.

Atletico Madrid manager Simeone was hit himself with a ban following his celebration against Juventus in the first leg which ended 2-0 in Spain.

According to the latest report by UK Sun, UEFA may likely take the same judgment on Ronaldo’s celebration against Atletico Madrid.

And if they do, then it means that Cristiano Ronaldo will miss one of Juventus’ Champions League encounter against their imminent opponents.
