Ancelotti: Cristiano among history’s best, Messi a Chosen one

first_imgFormer Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has insisted Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in history, while Lionel Messi is “a chosen one”.The 56-year-old, who is currently on a sabbatical from coaching, has defended both superstars following their slow start to the new campaign.”Last season with me, he (Ronaldo) scored 61 goals,” Ancelotti told Chinese web portal Sina Sports.”It’s incredible. A number that only one of the best players in the history of the game can achieve. Spain is very lucky to be able to enjoy him and Messi.”Leo will again be one of the best. I have no doubt because he has incredible quality. He is a chosen one.”Messi and Ronaldo failed to score in their first two La Liga games for their clubs – the first time since the Portuguese moved to Spain that both superstars have started with two blanks in front of goal. Ancelotti, meanwhile, also defended his successor at Real, Rafael Benitez, and insisted it’s too early to judge the club’s season.”I know what it means to coach Real Madrid and I wish Benitez luck and to receive maximum respect for his job,” he added.”Right now, it’s too early to judge the team.”Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo are two crucial pillars for Real Madrid and I wish them the best this season.”last_img read more

MLB would ‘benefit’ from mercy rule, Yankees manager Aaron Boone says

first_img“It is not fun to obviously put a position player in that situation,’’ Boone said. “For Ford and some of the guys it is fun, but sitting in my chair, you worry about hurting someone, and sitting there getting kicked in the mouth is no fun. I am sure there is something to that question.’’ There is no mercy rule in MLB, but New York’s Aaron Boone thinks one being implemented might be a good thing.The Yankees manager shared his thoughts on the idea Friday when addressing the 19-5 loss his team suffered at the hands of the Indians on Thursday. “It’s not fun to have to put in a position player”Aaron Boone discusses a mercy rule and how it could prevent injuries/bad situations during blowouts pic.twitter.com/EB6woa1GbN— Yankees Videos (@snyyankees) August 16, 2019“I think there would be a benefit to that,’’ Boone said. “You would probably eliminate a lot of the unwritten rules, people running or swinging. It would be like, if you get to this point after seven innings or whatever, there might be something to that and worth exploring.’’Some of Boone’s frustration stems from the fact he had to use DH Mike Ford on the mound for two innings against Cleveland. He’d rather avoid position players pitching.
