David Silva to get statue at Etihad Stadium

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City will build a statue of David Silva outside the Etihad to honour the Spanish playmaker’s 10-year career at the club.Widely accepted as one of the greatest players in City’s history, Silva’s final game was Saturday’s Champions League quarter-final defeat to Lyon in Lisbon. The club have commissioned a statue of Silva as well as dedicating a training pitch at the City Football Academy to him with a mosaic celebrating his role in the famous 6-1 win over Manchester United in 2011.The 34-year-old is being honoured with a sculpture at the stadium along with former captain Vincent Kompany.Both statues are expected to be unveiled next year.Silva helped turn the Abu Dhabi dream into reality after joining City from Valencia in 2010, winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and five League Cups in his 436 appearances for the club.It’s understood that chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak informed Silva of the tribute after his final Premier League game against Norwich City last month. Al Mubarak said: “David Silva is a transformational player; a quiet leader who has acted quietly and deliberately and inspired everyone around him, from the youngest academy player to his senior team-mates over the past 10 years.“He has put a stamp on the team, on this club, its history and even the Premier League as a whole. In doing so, he has been instrumental to the beautiful football philosophy you see today. He was the start of it.“As with Vincent before him, David’s statue will act as a lasting reminder of the wonderful moments that he gave us, not only as an incredible footballer, but as an inspiring ambassador who represented this football club with great dignity at all times.”Tags: David SilvaEtihad StadiumHonourManchester CityStatuelast_img read more

Women’s hockey embarrasses St. Cloud

first_imgJunior forward Hilary Knight continued her hot streak over the weekend. scoring 5 goals in 2 games.[/media-credit]It’s no joke. St. Cloud was one big sieve.Kicking off the second half of the season, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team (22-2-0, 16-2-0 WCHA) took on a winless St. Cloud squad (0-22-1, 0-17-1-1 WCHA) at the Kohl Center and outscored the struggling team 16-0 in two weekend games.The Badgers did not quite manage to score the 10 goals from Friday night’s game on Sunday, but six goals against an already-embarrassed team was more than enough.With only two minutes left in the first period, senior forward Megan Duggan finally capitalized on a faceoff, putting the Badgers on top 1-0 and essentially sealing the win.“It was a great win by [Brianna] Decker; she’s been great on her faceoffs today and in the past,” Duggan said. “She made a nice one to Brooke [Ammerman]. She just carried it in and dished it over to me, I had an open net. It wasn’t much on my part; I think [Ammerman] and Decker took most of the credit on that one.”After giving up 10 goals on Friday, the Huskies came out with a lot more energy, picking up the pace of the game and keeping the Badgers at bay.Husky goalie Ashley Nixon faced a total of 52 shots from the Badgers and made multiple great saves. The Badgers knew they would have to keep attacking to eventually get the puck in the net.“Nixon’s a great goalie,” junior forward Hilary Knight said. “When goalies are hot, there’s not much you can do. You just keep on shooting and hope one goes in.”In a more competitive game, the Badgers stepped up to the challenge. Wisconsin dominated puck possession and rarely allowed St. Cloud to enter Wisconsin’s defensive zone.While St. Cloud tried to give Wisconsin a fight, it was no contest in the end.“You never know what’s going to happen, and each game is going to have it’s own storyline. As I told the team, keep creating chances, keep getting opportunities, take the puck to the net, keep being aggressive and most of the time, things will work out as they did [Sunday].”But with several weeks apart and players attending different camps or playing abroad for Team Canada, any worries the Badgers had meshing back together after the break were quickly put to rest. In an all out massacre Friday night, the Badgers shut the Huskies out 10-0.After only a period of play, Wisconsin was up 6-0.“Everybody is making a contribution, and the more people that can contribute, the better that bodes for us,” Johnson said. “Those are the things we have to continue to more forward on. You can’t get complacent.”Only a spare few Badgers did not have a shot on net out of a team total of 38, but seven different players found the net, proving the squad has multiple weapons.Four minutes into the third period, with an 8-0 lead, Knight added insult to injury for St. Cloud, scoring her third goal of the night and tallying her third hat trick of the season.“She can beat goaltenders as we’ve seen now for two and a half years,” Johnson said. “For us, creating those turnovers in those areas like that is an example of getting the puck on the right person’s stick at the right time. Whether she scores high or low, she can beat you in all areas.”Wisconsin normally finishes games with around six goals. But Friday night, everyone wanted to get in on the fun against a St. Cloud team which just cannot seem to find a rhythm this season.Even the defense could not resist the chance to score as three defensemen notched goals. Sophomore Saige Pacholok and junior Brittany Haverstock capitalized on the flood goals in the first, while senior Geena Prough hit a one-timer to cap the game off 10-0.“We always joke about it when a defenseman scores, and we’re all really happy for each other,” Haverstock said. “It’s really nice to see a couple of the defense get a goal.”Not only did the defense get in on the scoring opportunities, but it also held its own, rarely letting the puck deep into its territory.“You get [McKeough] back and Haverstock back, and all of a sudden it adds some depth,” Johnson said. “They’re two quality players, so you get them back on the blue line and throw Alev [Kelter] in there – you have three kids back there who can really play the position very solidly, and so you eliminate a lot of scoring opportunities from that position. We end up not playing very long on our end, which is always a good thing.”last_img read more
