Anxiety as Balogun joins Aribo in training with Gerrard’s Rangers

first_img Loading… It was a great feeling as Nigeria international, Leon Balogun, trained with his new Rangers teammates, including Super Eagles pal, Joe Aribo for the first time on Tuesday. The 32-year-old joined the Scottish Premiership side on a one year contract with an option of an extension after leaving Championship side Wigan Athletic and becoming a free agent at the end the 2019-20 season. Having been unveiled by Steven Gerrard’s men, the Super Eagles defender moved swiftly into action by training with the team at the Rangers Training Centre. In the just-concluded season, Balogun featured in 11 league games for the Latics but his contributions were not enough to save Paul Cook’s men from relegation as they were handed a 12-point deduction. At the Ibrox Stadium, the former Mainz man will be seeking to adapt quickly to his new environment as Rangers face Aberdeen in their first game of the season on August 1. “I think it is an advantage for me not to be coming off 14 days or a 21-day break so I can come straight to fit into it, work with the team and get to know the team,” Balogun told the club website. “The league starts next week, so I am looking forward to joining the squad and integrating as quickly as possible.Advertisement Promoted ContentYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeSuch A Sweet Life Story Of The Youngest Queen In The World6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A Drone5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top6 Best Natural History Museums In The WorldHere Are The Best Movies Since 1982 You Should Definitely SeeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes20 “The Big Bang Theory” Moments Only A Few Fans Knew AboutCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Waycenter_img “It’s amazing.

Team chemistry not the issue for struggling Thunder, Carmelo Anthony says

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. Pundits are quick to attribute their struggles to chemistry issues between their three superstars, but Anthony was quick to dismiss such claims.“We’ve never had chemistry problems. We like, and enjoy, playing with one another. It’s never been a chemistry problem,” Anthony told  ESPN’s Royce Young after the team’s loss to the New York Knicks over the weekend.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkREAD: Knicks shut down Anthony in 2nd half, beat Thunder sans Porzingis“We’ve just got to figure out how to do so, but there’s never been chemistry problems with this group. We’ve embraced this since we came together that this was going to be a journey for us, and that’s where we’re at.” Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony (7) holds off New York Knicks forward Doug McDermott (20) during the second quarter of an NBA basketball game Saturday, Dec.16, 2017, at Madison Square Garden in New York.  AP/Bill KostrounWith the likes of perennial All-Stars Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in one team, many thought that the Oklahoma City Thunder would win the Larry O’Brien trophy this season and rank at least in top 3 in the Western Conference Standings.But through the first 30 games of the season, the team holds a meager 15-15 win-loss record and is currently eighth in the conference.ADVERTISEMENT Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense View comments Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award 2013 Wimbledon champ Marion Bartoli sets come back MOST READ Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson The Thunder’s offense has certainly been inconsistent this year, with the trio often taking turns and relying on whoever has the hot hand.Both George and Anthony are also used to having the ball in their hands for majority of possessions and the pair is still visibly adjusting to playing alongside perhaps the league’s most ball-dominant point guard.Still, Anthony continues to embrace the change and remains optimistic with the team’s chances of moving forward.“It is a different situation for me? Yes. Different dynamic for me? Yes,” he said.“Something I have to accept. Something I’m working on every day as far as my role on this team, what we need from me in order for this team to be successful. But this is, for me and the team, it’s about big picture for us.”  Khristian Ibarrola /raADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson RELATED STORY:NBA: Westbrook says it’s his duty to make George, Anthony comfortable with ThunderSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikinalast_img read more
