Steven Gerrard

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard does not welcome the speculation linking him with replacing Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

 

 

The Reds legend is consistently linked as a future replacement for Klopp, who is expected to leave Anfield when his contract expires in 2024.

 

 

But Gerrard is unhappy about the speculation as he is “very happy” in Glasgow.

 

 

Asked about the constant links to his old club and England, Gerrard told ESPN: “I can’t control any media speculation about my position.

 

 

“I don’t welcome it, I don’t add to it. All I do is focus on the job I have here and I’m very flattered and grateful for the position.

 

 

“I’m very happy here, I’ve said it on numerous occasions, it’s a huge club, I’m settled, I’m happy and I can continue to develop and keep trying to push this team forward.”

OLYMPICS

Ten athletes from Nigeria have been banned from participating in the Tokyo Olympics.

 

 

While the names of the affected athletes were not released, a statement from the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), revealed that a total of 18 athletes have been declared ineligible, with Nigeria being the most affected.

 

According to AIU, the 10 athletes from Nigeria failed the minimum testing requirements under Rule 15.

 

 

“Under the framework of Rule 15 governing National Federation Anti-Doping Obligations, which came into force in January 2019, National Federations are accountable for ensuring appropriate anti-doping measures are in place in their respective jurisdictions.

 

 

“Among other things, the Rule sets out minimum requirements for testing on the national teams of ‘Category A’ federations deemed to have the highest doping risk and considered as a threat to the overall integrity of the sport.

 

 

“The key requirement in Rule 15 is that an athlete from a ‘Category A’ country must undergo at least three no-notice out-of competition tests (urine and blood) conducted no less than 3 weeks apart in the 10 months leading up to a major event. Only then do they become eligible to represent their national team at the World Athletics Championships or the Olympic Games.

 

 

“For the year 2021, the seven identified ‘Category A’ National Federations are: Belarus, Bahrain, Ethiopia, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and Ukraine.

Liverpool

Liverpool are prepared to SELL captain Jordan Henderson this summer, it has been revealed.

 

The Athletic reports Henderson is considered a Liverpool legend and the club have publicised that they made an offer of a new deal which could see him end his playing career on Merseyside.

 

But they have made no headway during initial negotiations over an extension, opening the door to Henderson departing. His contract currently runs to 2023.

 

A new contract for Henderson is not seen as a major priority by sporting director Michael Edwards. The situation is described as ‘complicated and sensitive’.

 

Atletico Madrid are also monitoring Henderson and the Liverpool captain would be keen to join forces with Luis Suarez once again.

The 34-year-old fired Atletico to La Liga glory last season and the pair remain good friends from their three-year spell together at Anfield.
