0Shares0000Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in August 2017 after Wenger decided to cash in before the England midfielder’s contract expired © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 21 – Jurgen Klopp has risked Arsene Wenger’s wrath ahead of Liverpool’s visit to the Emirates Stadium by claiming the Arsenal manager failed to get the best out of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in August after Wenger decided to cash in before the England midfielder’s contract expired. The 24-year-old never quite lived up to his early promise at Arsenal after his switch from Southampton.But, after a slow start at Liverpool following his ($46 million, 39 million euros) move, Oxlade-Chamberlain has started to hit his stride in recent weeks — just in time for his first return to Emirates on Friday.Reds boss Klopp has been impressed by Oxlade-Chamberlain’s development at Anfield, saying: “He had to adapt. I know how it is if you’re kind of a big signing.“You have to perform immediately. But it’s difficult.“I was happy from the first day about his involvement, about his attitude, and since then he became more and more a Liverpool player.”But Klopp believes Oxlade-Chamberlain would already be an even more potent force if he had been instructed to add a goal threat to his game while he was with Arsenal.Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored just twice in 20 appearances for Liverpool and managed 20 goals in 198 games for Arsenal.Klopp believes that poor strike rate is down to Wenger prioritising the talents of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.“I think the biggest improvement, or the biggest potential he still has, is really being involved in goalscoring situations, because he has it in himself,” Klopp said.“It is unbelievable, but he was not asked for this too much I think in the past.“If you watched Arsenal in the past, the two decisive players were Sanchez and Ozil.“In a lot of moments, the decisive passes, Ozil or Sanchez. Then you are not that much involved.“Here, we put it on much more shoulders, and if he’s on the pitch he needs to be involved in situations like this.“I see really a lot of space for improvement as well, and that’s good.”– Purist principles –As if that wasn’t enough to irk Wenger, Klopp also made a point of highlighting how the Frenchman, so renowned for his purist principles, has often used a far more rudimentary approach against Liverpool based around the aerial ability of Olivier Giroud.“Against us most of the time Giroud played from the beginning, so that says a little bit about the style of Arsenal they have chosen against us very often,” Klopp said.“They are a complete football team, able to do everything. They can switch and change styles.“Against us it happened quite often that they played a lot of long balls, with Giroud. But he cannot play on Friday and that will change a few things maybe.”With Manchester City running away with the Premier League title race, the focus at the Emirates will on the battle for a top four finish.It is a crucial clash for both sides as fourth placed Liverpool are one point ahead of fifth placed Arsenal in the battle to qualify for the Champions League.Wenger made it clear how important Liverpool’s visit is when he made 11 changes for Tuesday’s 1-0 League Cup quarter-final win over West Ham.Liverpool haven’t played since Sunday’s thrashing of Bournemouth and Wenger is concerned the hectic fixture schedule is taking a toll on his team after Giroud was sidelined with a hamstring injury.“It is very demanding, especially because we already have a tough schedule behind us,” he said.“We have to sit down and analyse very well what we can do. What is very worrying in my job is when you start to lose players like Giroud.“After, you cannot afford to lose another one. I have to look how I can manage the schedule.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has dropped the legal fight against one of his most vocal critics, deciding to stop battling the California Nurses Association over hospital staffing ratios. Attorney General Bill Lockyer filed a motion late Thursday on behalf of the governor’s office withdrawing the state’s appeal of an earlier court ruling. “The governor is going to stop going after registered nurses and patient ratios,” nurses union executive director Rose Ann DeMoro said Friday, after the motion was made public. “For us, it is an enormous victory.” In June, a Sacramento County Superior Court judge ruled that the Schwarzenegger administration erred when it issued an emergency order a year ago seeking to delay a first-in-the-nation law requiring hospitals to provide more nurses. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The governor’s office filed an appeal shortly afterward with the state 3rd District Court of Appeal. “Throughout this process, our decisions have been guided by our efforts to ensure patient safety,” said Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Sabrina Demayo Lockhart. “In 10 months with the lower ratios the court mandated, it seems as though patient safety is not in jeopardy. So we’re going to move forward with the one-to-five ratio.” The governor’s action came two days after voters rejected all his proposed initiatives during the special election and on the same day he took “full responsibility” for the election debacle. Lockhart said the timing of the decision was related to a regulatory deadline that expires today, forcing the administration to decide whether to continue the court battle over the staffing ratios. “It wasn’t dictated by the outcome of the election at all,” Schwarzenegger spokeswoman Julie Soderlund said. The lower patient-to-nurse staffing ratio was not among the issues decided at the ballot box Tuesday but has been a long-sought goal of the 60,000-member nurses union. Its members were incensed about Schwarzenegger’s challenge to the 1999 law establishing the lower ratios. The law limited nursing coverage to no more than five patients at a time. Shortly after the November 2004 elections, Schwarzenegger sided with the hospital industry and attempted to continue the existing six-to-one ratio, citing a statewide nursing shortage and the financial burden to hospitals. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tags: Shabantop Shaban (R) in league action against KCCA last season. NetFOOTBALL. Unsettled Uganda Cranes striker Muhammad Shaban is scheming something sinister for the Caterpillars.He will seek to leave Onduparaka in the on-going transfer widow after the collapse of his relationship with the management and resentment over the club’s bold stance to strip him of the team’s captaincy PML Daily has learntA few days ago Onduparaka’s hierarchy appointed defender Rashid Toha as the player on whose bicep the captain’s armband will rest. Toha will deputised by long-serving right back Gasper Adriko, Gadaffi Gadihno and Andama Koko in that pecking order for the 2017/18 Uganda Premier League season.Shaban was deemed unfit to continue with captaincy role following behind-the-scenes spats that put him at crossroads with the club management.The souring relationship was catapulted into limelight with spiteful Facebook post in which he labeled himself “a slave.”“I thought that slave trade stopped long time ago but some people are still using it,” Shaban wrote on his Facebook page, opening rumours that he was hitting out at Onduparaka team management.After bagging 13 league goals last season that lifted the Arua-based side to a respectable fitth place finish in their maiden season in top flight, a form that saw the talismanic striker earn a place for national team at Africa Cup Of Nations in January, Shaban thinks his current employers are taking his meteoric rise fo granted.Sources at Green Light Stadium further intimate that even before the captaincy debacle, Shaban is alleged to have initially fallen out with his employers, whom he accuses of stifling his ambitions of joining the paid ranks after suitors from South Africa had inquired about his availability.The two events following at the back of each other have left the young prodigy not to stand the sight of the club’s big guns anymore.The Caterpillars are set to begin pre-season training this week, but sources close to Shaban indicate that the player, currently with Uganda Cranes team preparing for their forthcoming CHAN qualifier against South Sudan, will not return to Green Light Stadium for per-season training after national team obligations to accelerate his move elsewhere.It is claimed that Vipers SC, who let go of the player a few seasons ago, are among the teams to have serious interest in the want-away striker.The two-time champions are planning a title assault for next season, all too aware it will not come to fruition without a prolific goal-poacher. And Shaban has been earmarked to fit the bill.League Champions KCCA FC are also said to be monitoring the player’s sulking levels.Onduparaka has been one the busiest sides in the on-going transfer widow with up to eight new faces acquired. Vianney Ssekajugo signed from relegated JMC Hippos joins the cast of former Saints right back Aggrey Kirya, forward Karim Ndugwa, former Nebbi Central fast paced winger Rashid Okocha.Others are Allan Busobozi (from Gulu’s Football For Good Academy), goalkeeper Nicholas Ssebwato (Bright Stars), Bob Kasozi (Express) and Rajab Kakooza (Lweza).Comments
