Carver gives striker backing

first_imgNewcastle head coach John Carver is backing £5million summer signing Emmanuel Riviere to come good as he attempts to fill Papiss Cisse’s sizeable boots. The Frenchman has scored only twice for the Magpies – both of them in a 3-2 Capital One Cup victory at Crystal Palace in September – and has come in for some criticism from disenchanted fans. However, Carver said: “I will defend him, he’s one of my players. The one thing about Manu Riviere is he works his socks off. He keeps getting on the end of things, he keeps getting in the right areas and I’m telling you, before time it will come off. “Let’s judge him at the end of the season or in six months’ time. This is the first time he’s had a real run in the team, let’s not forget. He’s not played for the 90 minutes, but he’s had a right good go at it. “He’s got to convert the chances, I understand that, but let’s judge him in the future. I do think it takes guys time. “Players in the past have taken a bit longer. Yohan Cabaye took a bit longer, Yoan Gouffran – a lot of players took some time to adapt. Ask any Premier League manager and they’ll say the same thing. “It’s a different demand. It’s demands more than anything else.” Riviere’s cause has not been helped by the way 21-year-old Perez has started his career in the Barclays Premier League. He scored the decisive goal in his first league start for the club, a 2-1 victory at Tottenham on October 26 last year, and was also on target in each of the next two games, wins against Liverpool and West Brom. Press Association However, the last of his five goals for the club to date came against Everton on December 26, and Cisse has had to shoulder a significant burden since his return from the African Nations Cup. The Senegal international, who is to undergo a minor procedure on his troublesome knee during his lay-off, will not be able to do so again, however, until the final three games of the campaign after earning himself a lengthy ban following his spitting match with Manchester United defender Jonny Evans, and Carver has little sympathy with him. He said: “What he did was wrong, first of all, but it’s very difficult to act on a situation when somebody has actually done that to you, and until somebody actually does it to you, you don’t know how you would react. “I think I know how I would react, and I don’t think I would have spat in somebody’s face. It was an unsavoury situation, wasn’t it? Let’s be honest.” Carver will welcome Jack Colback back from suspension and Remy Cabella from a knee problem, but fellow midfielder Mehdi Abeid and full-back Massadio Haidara are out with thigh and knee injuries respectively. However, he will hope his depleted squad can take advantage of Everton’s midweek Europa League exertions, a situation knows only too well after Newcastle’s last dalliance with the competition. He said: “When you work so hard to get your team into a position to qualify for it and then you’ve got to play so many games that it’s detrimental to your bread and butter, which is Premier League football, it’s taking away from it.” The 25-year-old, who was drafted in from Monaco to help plug the gap left by the departures of Loic Remy, Shola Ameobi and Luuk de Jong, is still awaiting his first Barclays Premier League goal after slipping behind youngster Ayoze Perez in the St James’ Park pecking order. However, Riviere has been preferred to the former Tenerife starlet in the last two games, and Cisse’s enforced absence as he begins a seven-game ban as his team-mates travel to Everton on Sunday means he is likely to be handed an extended run in the team. last_img read more

Chelsea Commends Aluko over Bullying Claim

first_imgThe FA said the allegation arose in informal correspondence and was not included in Aluko’s subsequent complaint, or it would have been investigated.Sampson retains the full support of the Football Association after being accused of “bullying and discrimination” by Aluko.Sampson, 34, has been cleared of wrongdoing by two investigations and vehemently denies the claims.Players’ union the Professional Footballers’ Association says it has been supporting Aluko “from the first moment she made us aware of her experiences of playing for the England team”.PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor added the organisation supported calls for a second independent probe.Aluko was also supported by former England team-mate Lianne Sanderson, who tweeted: “I am so proud of one of my best friends, Eni Aluko. I have stood with you through this and I will continue to do so.”Former FA director of corporate affairs Simon Johnson tweeted: “Well done to Eni Aluko for speaking out. No-one should have to justify why they perceive a comment as racist. Sad it came to this, but brave.”A three-month independent investigation by barrister Katharine Newton last year did not uphold any of Aluko’s complaints, and cleared Sampson and the FA of any wrongdoing.Aluko, however, has claimed the investigation and a previous FA inquiry were “flawed”.The FA denies this and says Aluko, who has played 102 times for England, declined to respond to the Newton investigation.She has not been picked by Sampson since making allegations against him as part of an FA cultural review into England management.The FA has insisted the timing was purely coincidental as the review was confidential and anonymous.But Aluko claims she suffered “victimisation as a result of me reporting discrimination”.Anti-racism campaign group Kick It Out said the situation was now “one of utter confusion with claims and counter-claims”.It added: “Kick It Out urges the FA to undertake a comprehensive and independent review of the processes involved in the original complaint made by Aluko up to the final point of the independent investigation by Katharine Newton QC.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Eniola Aluko’s club, Chelsea, has commended the 30-year-old player for speaking out of her bullying and discrimination experience under England’s women’s football team coach, Mark Sampson.Speaking to the BBC on Monday, the Chelsea Ladies striker claimed Sampson made a “racist comment” about her family in Nigeria being infected with the Ebola virus. Sampson vehemently denies saying this.A Chelsea spokesman said yesterday that the club “finds any and all forms of discrimination abhorrent and it is imperative that players are supported when coming forward to speak about these issues”.But the English FA is sticking by its findings and supporting Sampson, BBC Sport learnt.last_img read more
