‘Replacing Ronaldo is impossible, nobody can do it’

first_imgBernardo Silva admits “taking Cristiano Ronaldo’s place is impossible”, with the Manchester City winger eager to point out that he has no intention of trying to emulate an iconic countryman once Portugal find themselves in need of another talisman.Advertisement A five-time Ballon d’Or winner is very much the main man for his country at present, with the Juventus superstar recording 99 goals through 164 appearances.Ronaldo has helped Portugal to Euro 2016 glory and the inaugural UEFA Nations League crown, with his standing among the all-time greats very much secure.There will, however, come a day when the 35-year-old walks away and someone else is required to step up in his place.Silva, given his ability and experience, would be among those expected to take the lead when it comes to providing inspiration.The City forward is reluctant to put himself anywhere near a category occupied by Ronaldo, with the 25-year-old aware that any efforts to follow in illustrious footsteps are likely to be thankless.Silva told AS: “Taking Cristiano’s place is impossible. Nobody is going to do that.“I’m going to try and always keep improving so I can do the best I can for Portugal and my club – helping my country and team to win everything possible.”While turning out alongside legendary figures at international level, Silva continues to do likewise with his club.Sergio Aguero remains a prolific presence for City, as the club’s all-time leading scorer, and the Argentine is being backed to chase down Alan Shearer’s Premier League benchmark of 260 goals.Aguero sits 80 efforts short of that figure at present, but Silva has said: “Kun is goals. There’s nothing more to say about him.“He hits it so hard. If you give him a bad ball, he hits it well. It’s so good to have a player who scores so easily.“That’s why he’s the player with most goals in City’s history and I think he’s close to the record for the Premier League. If he carries on like this he’ll get there.”Another distinguished team-mate that Silva gets to work with on a regular basis at present is namesake David Silva, with the World Cup-winning Spaniard expected to prolong his playing career after bidding farewell to the Etihad Stadium when his current contract expires in the summer.Read Also: Messi asked if he would pass to Ronaldo if they played together“He’s got a lot of football left in him,” said Bernardo.“With David’s style of play he can play as long as he wants. He’s really smart, he always makes the right choices and he’s physically in great shape. He can play for as long as he wants.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthDid You Notice How Natural Simba’s Movements Looked In The Movie?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThe Best Cars Of All TimeNo Good Disney Role Models For Boys?7 Reasons It’s Better To Be A VeganYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Non-Obvious Things That Damage Your PhoneThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

3 things Jim Boeheim said at his Friday pre-Final Four press conference

first_img Published on April 1, 2016 at 5:58 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 HOUSTON — Syracuse (23-13, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) head coach Jim Boeheim spoke to the media on Friday ahead of his team’s matchup with North Carolina (32-6, 14-4) on Saturday at 8:49 p.m. in NRG Stadium.Here are three things that Boeheim during his 35 minutes on the podium.Coach in-Waiting  The always-present topic of Mike Hopkins waiting to take over as the next Syracuse head coach was brought up again, and Boeheim sang Hopkins’ praises in a way that poked fun at himself.His answer started off with his go-to line about how Hopkins’ nine games as the interim head coach aren’t a reflection of his abilities since he was coaching Boeheim’s team. Then he got into what makes Hopkins so successful.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Mike has proven to me over and over again that he understands the game, the players, the other things that surround what a head coach has to do. He’s much better than I am with the media, which probably isn’t hard to be. He’s great with the players. Probably better than I am. He’s a great recruiter. He’s really good with the fans and alumni. Again, much better than I am.“…I always thought it’s better to get a great assistant who you really see that potential in to be the next head coach rather than hiring a head coach from another place who has had a completely different experience, maybe a smaller school. That doesn’t translate all the time. Sometimes it does, but not all the time.But if you look at the great coaches I’ve seen, whether it’s Mike Krzyzewski or Bob Knight, I mean, you can go quite a bit further. They got their head coaching jobs from being an assistant, and were pretty good.”ClinicalBoeheim hosts several coaching clinics each year for high school coaches. There are upward of 400 coaches that attend, and almost every time, he starts off by talking about his patented 2-3 zone.“You know, it’s pretty much standard. Like this is Jim Boeheim, this is all he knows, so we’re going to have him talk about the 2-3 zone.“I tried one clinic to start with something else. There were 400 coaches there. They started getting restless. I knew right away, OK, we’ll talk about it.“…High school coaches come up to me every clinic I’ve ever done and say, Thanks, coach. We used it. We won the state championship. That’s a good feeling when that happens.“College coaches aren’t going to use the zone because they played man-to-man as a player. They coached for somebody who played man-to-man. They got their first job playing man-to-man. They’re not going to come in and change their philosophy.“I think more coaches are using a little zone now as a change when the other thing isn’t working. So I think it’s a little bit.“But coaches are going to pretty much stick with what they’ve always done, I think.”Going leftBoeheim was asked who would retire first: Him, or 71-year-old Steve Fisher, the head coach at San Diego State. And though he stated last year that he only planned to coach until after the 2018 season, his statements afterward make it seem as though he isn’t quite sure.“I feel the same as I did 10 or 20 years ago. I probably feel better. I’m doing Pilates two times a week now for two years. The 10 or 15 years before that, I didn’t work out. I’m probably in better shape now. I’m in the weight room a little bit now, which I didn’t do for the 20, 30 years before that, since I stopped playing.“So I feel healthy. My kids, you know, they keep you going. Teenagers, I got three of ’em. I think all those things, you know, they help you.“But I’ve always felt the same. I feel the same now as I did 20 years ago or 30 years ago. I might have a couple more aches and pains, but I feel mentally the same. I feel better in terms of doing the job because you’re putting even more into it because you know you’re not going to be doing it that much longer.“But I’ve never known how long I’m going to coach. I still don’t know how long I’m going to coach. You know, that’s not something I think about. I’ve never talked about my contract or the length of it for years. I’m still not talking about it. I just know that you could retire tomorrow. I mean, I don’t know. It just depends what happens.“Al McGuire once told me, ‘One day I was driving to work, I come down the ramp and I turn right. The day I turn left, I’m not going to work anymore.’ He turned left one day. That was it.“So I’m going to turn left someday, too.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
