RACING DIGEST

  • John Gosden’s racing digest unbeaten Palace Pier is the 8-11 favourite for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot after another of his main rivals pulled out because of the soft ground. On Wednesday, 2,000 Guineas winner Kameko was confirmed a non-runner and yesterday Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Benbatl joined him as an absentee. Benbatl was 7-2 favourite for the QEII Stakes 12 months ago but trailed home last on very soft ground. Bin Suroor said: ‘There is no point running him at Ascot. We ran him last year and he hated it.’ 
  • Trainer Aidan O’Brien has booked William Buick to ride Derby winner Serpentine in the Champion Stakes. O’Brien also runs 7-4 favourite Magical (Ryan Moore) and Japan (Colin Keane). 
  • Champion amateur jump jockey David Maxwell is likely to be on the sidelines for around eight weeks after suffering concussion and fracturing a vertebra in a fall at Wetherby on Wednesday. 
  • Trainer Alexandra Dunn secured a mammoth 2,277-1 double at Wincanton with victories for The Eagle’s Nest (33-1) and Thahab Ifraj (66-1). Dunn said: ‘I know they were big prices but it is not a big surprise to me because they had been working well.’

Watch Wigan legend Jordi Gomez score stunning free-kick from inside his OWN HALF in Europa League against PSV

WIGAN legend Jordi Gomez scored a stunning free-kick from inside his OWN HALF in the Europa League for Omonia Nicosia against PSV Eindhoven.

The Spanish midfielder, 35, caught PSV napping with a sweetly struck quick free-kick after 29 minutes.

The former Latics ace’s wondergoal came just a week after Rangers’ Kemar Roofe bagged his own extraordinary strike from his own half.

Roofe’s effort was from open play against Standard Liege in the same competition – prompting boss Steven Gerrard to claim his strike was the best he has ever seen live.

Veteran Gomez – who won the FA Cup with Wigan in 2013 – used all his experience to slam the ball over the head of PSV’s stranded Swiss keeper Yvon Mvogo.

His goal flew in from a staggering 54 metres but PSV complained after the ball appeared to be still rolling when he struck it.

But the Dutch outfit put the set-back of going 1-0 down behind them.

Mario Gotze’s new side pulled off a last-gasp comeback to snatch a 2-1 win after Donyell Malen completed his double in stoppage time.

Some fans on social media weren’t happy the goal scored by Gomez – who had two stints with Wigan before leaving in 2017 – was allowed to stand.

One said: “Wasn’t even a dead ball it was moving. Surely this didn’t actually count.”

Another added: “Considering the balls still rolling when he hits it all he should be getting is goal disallowed shouts.”

A third tweeted: “Great strike but defo a moving ball. Having said it if it was in the prem they would have somehow given him offside in his own half.”

The debate raged online about whether Gomez’s finish was a better goal than Roofe’s stunner.

One supporter commented: “Roofe went past 3 players in shocking conditions and banged it in from the half way line with a non static ball so less control, Jordi gomez had the time and a dead ball situation… Still a mad goal though from gomez.”

arsenal contract negotiator huss fahmy quits as part of huge club restructure after helping bring mikel arteta back

ARSENAL’S contract negotiator Huss Fahmy will quit the club, according to reports.

He becomes the latest name behind the scenes to leave his role as the restructuring process continues.

Fahmy was handed the role in the summer of 2017 after leaving his position at Team Sky.



He was tasked with negotiating the contracts of players and talking with agents to execute the best deals possible.

Fahmy was also instrumental in bringing Arteta back to the club.

According to the Athletic, Fahmy will continue in his role for the next month and complete the handover process.

It is claimed that Arsenal will replace him with a ‘football operations executive’ that will have more of an all-round role including negotiating contracts.

The Gunners have been attempting to streamline the number of staff behind the scenes following the appointment of Arteta.

Technical director Edu and chief executive Vinai Venkatesham remain integral at the club.

Also leaving the club in recent months is global scout Francis Cagigao after 10 years with the club.

Fellow scouts Peter Clark and former Reading boss Brian McDermott also lost their jobs due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Arsenal caused outrage in the summer after announcing 55 staff members were to lose their jobs as a cost-cutting measure.

Liverpool youngster Rhys Williams starred in Champions League, broke his nose on loan, and is ready to replace Van Dijk

FOR the hour he played, Rhys Williams looked like he belonged in Liverpool’s defence.

The 19-year-old centre half produced an assured display as the Reds comfortably defeated FC Midtjylland 2-0 in the Champions League.

His coming-of-age performance led to first team stars Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson all congratulating the youngster, while manager Jurgen Klopp was equally impressed.

The emergence of Williams only happened because Fabinho had to be substituted with a hamstring injury.

And with the Brazilian set for a spell out the side, alongside longterm casualty Virgil van Dijk, Williams will now see this as his chance to become a regular.

A TOUGH SIX WEEKS

His elegance on the ball has always been evident at youth level.

But, even though he stands at 6ft 5in tall, there were question marks about whether or not he was tough enough.

Last season Williams was sent on loan to National League North outfit Kidderminster Harriers, where he was given a brutal introduction to first team football.

It was either sink or swim for the England U21 international, and it looked like he was ready to drown after his first month with the Harriers.

In fact Kidderminster boss Russ Penn, who was assistant manager when Williams was at the club, revealed the Preston-born teen had a “dodgy six weeks” to start off with.

“He conceded a couple of soft goals, he was getting bullied, he was always on the floor,” Penn told the Daily Mail.

“He found it hard to get up to speed. It is so much different to U23 football.

“After the first three games we were thinking ‘do we take him out and give him a breather or hope he learns from his mistakes’. We left him in and he did.”

GAME CHANGER

An away day at Darlington was Williams’ rude awakening to lower league football.

Harriers lost 1-0 – with the defender roughed up in the build-up to the winning goal with a smash to the face.

Williams was knocked out in the exchange and suffered a broken nose.

But rather than have sympathy for him, his team-mates laughed on the coach journey back home and told him it was part and parcel of the National League.

It was just what Williams needed. He knew he had to be more aggressive, which was proven when he was dismissed against Brackley for a ‘needless, reckless challenge’, according to Kidderminster’s website.

MAKING OF THE MAN

All in all, Willams mustered 42 appearances for Kidderminster – growing in confidence with every game.

Rival teams began to ask who he was, and his commanding presence showed Liverpool that he had a future at the club.

“You have to learn quick. The last six months he was with us we saw a really composed, towering centre half. Everyone was asking about him,” Penn said.

“He was the best loan spell we have had at the club. It’s great for us. He gave 100% to Kidderminster. And I like to think wherever he goes he will have learned something with us.”

With Williams likely to be thrown in at the deep end this weekend, Liverpool will be thankful that Kidderminster gave him the toughness needed to succeed.
