Reece Oxford focus

first_imgWest Ham boss Slaven Bilic handed 16-year-old Reece Oxford his Barclays Premier League debut on Sunday as his side went on to win 2-0 at Arsenal. The England Under-17 skipper has already broken the record as the youngest player to ever represent the Hammers and, here, Press Association Sport analyses his display at the Emirates. PERFORMANCE Risen through the ranks as a classy, ball-playing defender who was once a reported target for Arsenal, but Bilic fancies the teenager as a defensive midfielder and he did not put a foot wrong despite coming up against the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Happy to issue orders to those around him before being replaced with 10 minutes to go by club captain Kevin Nolan. His development could mean that Bilic has filled a position without having to dip into the transfer market. MATURITY No-one would have pointed out the 16-year-old league debutant if asked to do so after kick-off. If he does continue in the side there are likely to be hiccups, but with the expected permanent arrival of Alex Song coupled with the likes of Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate, Oxford has plenty of experienced players to learn from. WILL HE MAKE IT? There is no reason to suggest not, even at this early stage. Oxford became the Premier League’s seventh-youngest player but has international experience and a manager who appears ready to put faith in him to do a job in a role that demands so much. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Messi demands Abidal name names after dressing room criticism

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Earlier Tuesday Abidal had spoken glowingly of Messi and had sounded optimistic of an extended deal“I’m sure we’ll come to a deal with Leo because he knows we need him. He’s on top form, enjoying his game and breaking records,” said Abidal.“We as a club want to make him even happier and to do that by surrounding him with the right teammates. We want a strong team with a good everyday feeling and above all we want to win titles.”Messi signed his last extension in 2017, with his current deal running through to 2021 but reportedly containing a clause that could allow him to quit Barcelona in June. Barcelona, Spain | AFP | Lionel Messi has hit back at Barcelona sporting director Eric Abidal after the Frenchman blamed slackness in the dressing room for the departure of recently-fired coach Ernesto Valverde.In an interview with Spanish daily Sport Abidal said that under Valverde, who was sacked in mid-January, many players had been unhappy, hadn’t worked hard enough nor communicated properly.Now Argentine ace Messi has fired a salvo at across his own ranks just as the club are trying to get him to sign a contract extension.“Sincerely I don’t like doing this kind of thing but everyone has to be made responsible for their actions and what they say,” Messi said on Instagram.“We the players in the dressing room are the first to admit it when we haven’t played well. The directors need to take their responsibilities too.“I believe that if you talk about the players (in this way) you should name names instead of worrying everyone and encouraging rumours that are far from certain.”last_img read more
