Victor Moses arrives Inter Milan for medical

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Victor Moses’ reconciliation with Antonio Conte is nearing completion with the utility player in Italy ahead of securing a loan move to Inter Milan. Videos of Moses in Milan surfaced on social media on Tuesday morning as he underwent a medical with the high-flying Serie A side. The 29-year-old is set to join on loan for the rest of the season with a view to making the deal permanent for £8.5 million in the summer. He had initially arrived in the city on Monday night, having cut short his 18-month loan spell at Turkish side Fenerbahce. Moses is currently deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea and had spent the past 12 months plying his trade with Fenerbahce. However, he is set to be reunited with Conte at Inter after playing a key role in the Italian’s 2016-17 Premier League title triumph while in charge of Chelsea. He featured 34 times in the league that term, scoring three times. Overall the pair worked together at Stamford Bridge for two seasons before Conte was sacked just two months after the end of the 2017-18 campaign. The last season saw them win the FA Cup too. Conte will be hoping the arrival of Moses can aid Inter’s title challenge as they look to usurp Juventus as champions of Italy. Juve (51 points) currently sit four points clear of second-placed Inter (47 points) after 20 matches apiece.Tags: Antonio ConteFernabacheInter MilanSerie AVictor Moseslast_img read more

LA LIGA wrap: Real Madrid held at home by Villarreal

first_imgLa Liga leaders Real Madrid dropped points at home for only the second time this season when Villarreal fought back from a goal down in an entertaining 1-1 draw that left Real two points ahead of Barcelona on Sunday.Champions Atletico Madrid also stumbled, a 0-0 stalemate at Sevilla denting their chances of a second consecutive Spanish title and leaving them five points behind Barca in third.With a King’s Cup semifinal second leg against Barca looming on Wednesday, Villarreal coach Marcelino fielded a weakened side at the Bernabeu but it took Real until seven minutes into the second half to break the deadlock.Eric Bailly hauled Cristiano Ronaldo down in the penalty area and the Portugal captain picked himself up and sent goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo the wrong way with his spot-kick for his 30th goal of the campaign.Villarreal had the best chances in an even first half. Real keeper Iker Casillas did well to block a close-range Moises Gomez effort in the 12th minute and fullback Dani Carvajal cleared Gerard Moreno’s follow-up shot off the line.Moreno made up for his earlier miss and stunned the European champions when he lashed a shot low into the corner in the 64th minute. Ronaldo had two chances to restore Real’s lead but was twice denied by excellent Asenjo saves before substitute Jese missed an open goal after the Villarreal keeper had misjudged a cross.The visitors could even have claimed their first win at the Bernabeu when Luciano Vietto, another substitute, tested Casillas with a diving header four minutes from time.Villarreal withstood intense pressure in the final minutes, Ronaldo again going close with a header.It was the first game Real have failed to win at home in La Liga since they were beaten 2-1 by Atletico in September and was their first draw in Spain’s top flight this season.Elsewhere Carlo Ancelotti’s side lead on 61 points with 13 games left, with Barca, who host their great rivals at the Nou Camp in three weeks, on 59 after they won a scrappy game at Granada 3-1 on Saturday.Atletico have 54 points in third, one ahead of Valencia, who won 2-0 at home to Real Sociedad on Sunday and play at Atletico next weekend. Sevilla are seven points further back in fifth.–last_img read more

Formula One: Steering wheel of fortune for Vettel

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Budapest, Hungary | AFP |  Sebastian Vettel admitted he was glad that it is so difficult to overtake around the tight Hungaroring circuit after nursing his Ferrari car, with steering problems, to victory in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix.The four-time world champion, whose victory lifted him 14 points clear of nearest rival Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes in this year’s title race, said he felt something wrong with his car on the grid, adding that it became worse during the race.“It was a tough one for me” he told reporters after the 46th win of his career. “I was hoping for a bit more of a quiet afternoon.“I felt already there was something not right when we dropped the car on the grid. The steering wheel was not on straight. It didn’t feel right and then it got worse.“I did try to adapt. I knew you could not change it and then I tried to save the rears. We spoke a little bit on the radio about it, talking through the problem.“They told me to avoid the kerbs, but on a track where you use the kerbs, it compromises your performance. In the second stint I wanted to make sure I could use the tyres so I was holding back.“In the end I was pretty well flat out and they were behind me queuing. It is good you cannot overtake around his track — I had no room for error!”He added that Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen who finished second behind him was “a lot faster” that he was during the closing stages of the race.“Kimi had good pace and could go a lot faster than me for the majority of the race,” he said. Raikkonen said: “I had the whole race following Sebastian and hoping he goes as fast as he can and not saving tyres — as the Mercedes was catching me.“But I was not too worried because the car was handling well,” he said. “I could follow [Vettel] very well, but it wasn’t ideal because I felt I had the speed and I was stuck in the middle.”last_img read more

National Dairy FARM Program releases stockmanship training video with BQA

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Dairy FARM Program announced today the release of a stockmanship training video as part of the program’s partnership with the National Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program.The 27-minute video is divided into several chapters, including “Point of Balance,” “Understanding the Flight Zone” and “Utilizing Tools to Effectively Move Cattle.” Each segment contains reminder points and multiple choice questions to test viewers on the content. The video can serve as a training resource to satisfy the FARM Animal Care Version 3.0 requirement for annual employee training.The video, directed by Dr. Robert Hagevoort of New Mexico State and the U.S. Dairy Education & Training Consortium, is available on theFARM Program website and YouTube page in both English and Spanish.“We are more than happy to develop and provide a tool for farmers and employees that will help them better understand why cows behave the way they do, and as a result become more careful and more efficient animal caretakers,” Hagevoort said.The FARM Program, created by NMPF in 2009, believes the dairy industry has a great story to tell when it comes to producing safe, abundant and affordable milk and dairy beef. Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state-implemented program that informs U.S. beef producers and consumers about common sense husbandry techniques and accepted scientific knowledge that can help raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. FARM’s partnership with BQA demonstrates that U.S. milk producers are committed to providing the best in animal care, residue prevention and environmental stewardship.last_img read more
