Premiership: Swansea Sacks Paul Clement

first_img“To change the manager, especially at only the halfway point of the season, is the last thing we wanted to do as a club,” said Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins in a statement.“We had three different managers last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around.“But we felt we couldn’t leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give us the best chance of an uplift and a turnaround in fortunes with the club bottom of the Premier League.”Jenkins praised Clement’s role in helping keep the club in the English top flight last season.He took over at Swansea with the club bottom of the Premier League and tipped as odds-on favourites for relegation.But he masterminded four wins from his first six games, including an impressive victory at Liverpool, to earn himself the Premier League manager of the month award for January.He arrived with a wealth of experience after working with some of the biggest teams in Europe as assistant manager to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.Clement is the sixth Premier League manager to lose his job so far this season, following the dismissals of Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City), Ronald Koeman (Everton), Slaven Bilic (West Ham) and Tony Pulis (West Brom).Swansea’s owners will be banking on fresh impetus from a new boss to lift the team up the table, with the likes of Leicester and Everton boosted by new appointments in recent weeks.Assistant managers Nigel Gibbs and Karl Halabi have also left the club.Swansea said they would give supporters a further update regarding their replacements within the next 24 hours.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Swansea City on Wednesday sacked manager Paul Clement as the Premier League’s bottom club desperately search for way out of their relegation mire.As the season approaches the halfway point, the Welsh side is already four points adrift of safety following Monday’s 3-1 defeat at Everton, with just three wins in their first 18 Premier League matches.“We can confirm that the club has tonight parted company with head coach Paul Clement,” the club said on its Twitter account.last_img read more

Masters 2019: All eyes on Tiger Woods as leaders prepare for third round

first_imgTiger Woods was the center of attention at Augusta National as the final groups prepared to begin their third rounds in the Masters.For the first time in Masters history, five players were tied for the lead through 36 holes — all of them major champions in Brooks Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen, Jason Day, Francesco Molinari and Adam Scott. Yet his performance so far this week has raised expectations of a drought-breaking triumph. Had he been more clinical with the putter from inside 10 feet, he could easily have been clear of the field at the end of round two.Woods was due to begin his third round alongside Ian Poulter at 2:05pm local time (7:05pm BST), with Day and Molinari making up the final pairing 40 minutes later. A thrilling day was in prospect, with Woods one of four men a solitary shot off the pace at six under.Woods has 14 majors to his name, but the last of those was secured almost 11 years ago at the U.S. Open, while he has not triumphed at Augusta since 2005.

‘Turning Up’ the Beat

first_imgDetermined to constantly challenge himself and introduce a ground-breaking single before the competition gets any more competitive, Neoh William Kparsuah, famously known as Ne-oh William, is sky rocketing as a most ‘featured’ and hardworking artist.Because of that, he has been nominated in this year’s Liberian Music Awards as ‘Dancehall Artist of the Year against AK45, J-Youndy, Seek and Shadow.Ne-oh is one of a select handful of Liberian artists producing dance hall/reggae music. But as he points out, it really doesn’t matter – especially when he’s pumping out collaborations one after the other like he’s changing shoes. So far, his songs are bumping and catchy as heck; but Ne-oh just crossed the sea with his recent release featuring Quincy B, “Turn up”.On Tunes Liberia’s Top 10 music chart, “Turn Up” is at #3 after being released just one week ago!Ne-oh released five strong projects in 2015 and has released two this year already. So far he’s the most sought out by Liberian artists, who all want a piece of his immaculate ‘voice’ control on their tracks.Music is no longer a game on the Liberian entertainment scene and has now become a very competitive business. Therefore, a lot of artists are looking forward to riding on Ne-oh’s team –a team they say is winning all the spotlight right now.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
