first_imgFormer Arsenal defender Martin Keown would not be surprised if Arsene Wenger turns down the chance to re-sign Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish playmaker is reported to be available for transfer this summer and keen on a reunion with Arsenal, where he scored 57 goals in 303 appearances. Arsenal, however, are understood to have passed up the opportunity to bring Fabregas back to the club, leaving London rivals Chelsea in pole position to seal the 27-year-old’s signature. “I’m not surprised,” said Keown, who made 449 appearances for the Gunners and was speaking on behalf of Official England Supporter “After Fabregas left, Arsene had to invest time in someone else and h e doesn’t want to block their path if Fabregas comes back. “Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is someone who can play in that central midfield position as well as Jack Wilshere of course. “Wenger probably feels he’s more than catered for in that attacking midfield area – it’s a defensive midfielder that’s going to be more purposeful in that Arsenal squad now.” Arsenal splashed a club-record £42.4m on Real Madrid’s Mesut Ozil last summer and already have the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta in their creative ranks – as well as Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain. If the club are to make any star signings before the start of the new campaign, Keown believes it will be a striker – rather than a midfielder – that comes in. “I do believe Fabregas would improve any team in the world so of course, he deserves special consideration b ut there are only so many £30m players you can buy every summer,” Keown said. “Arsene Wenger has just signed a new three-year contract and I’m not sure he’ll be signing another one so he might think if he’s going to spend £30m, he would prefer it to be on a centre forward than another midfielder.” Press Association Fabregas joined Arsenal as a 16-year-old in 2003 and matured into one of the world’s most exciting creative talents. Named club captain in 2008, the Spaniard developed a strong attachment to the Gunners and described Wenger as “like a father figure” in an emotional parting tribute in 2011. Keown admits a move to another English club, particularly fellow title-challengers Chelsea, would prove difficult for both Fabregas and Arsenal’s supporters. “I don’t think Chelsea would be an ideal move for Fabregas having been at Arsenal before, but it remains to be seen where he ends up,” Keown added. “People move on, people make their decisions and if he ends up playing for one of A rsenal’s rivals that’s football, it’s just the way it is.” Fabregas is currently on World Cup duty with Spain, who start the defence of their title against Holland on Friday. **England are rated 25/1 to win the World Cup by** last_img read more

first_img“It was really fun, but I think he won more games than I did,” admitted Davies with a smile.The Canadian teen joined Bayern in late 2018, and nailed down a first-team berth at left-back this season despite arriving from Vancouver Whitecaps as a winger.The Bundesliga season was halted in mid-March due to the coronavirus, but Davies has kept busy improving his German and last week signed a contract extension until 2025.He has entertained Bayern fans on social media during the lockdown with videos of him trying to master tricky words in the Bavarian dialect.His dubbed imitation of the Backstreet Boys hit “I Want It That Way” went viral on TikTok.“I love entertaining,” Davies admitted and smiled when a reporter from broadcaster RTL jokingly offered him a guest role in one of their soap operas.The German Football League (DFL) has said it is ready to resume from May 9, albeit behind closed doors, but Angela Merkel’s government must still give the go-ahead.With Bayern four points clear at the top of the table and on course for an eighth straight league title, Davies said playing the remaining nine games in near-empty stadiums will be a challenge.“If it happens, it is going to be different,” said Davies. “The fans are a part of us, but it’s for everyone’s safety, so I don’t mind it.”Share on: WhatsApp Davies, who was born in a refugee camp in Ghana, helped raise funds for the UN Refugee AgencyBerlin, Germany | AFP |  Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies says it would be a “disaster” if the coronavirus reaches one of the world’s many refugee camps — like the one he was born in.The 19-year-old started life in a refugee camp in Ghana after his parents fled the civil war in Liberia.The family emigrated to Canada when Davies was five years old.The move was made possible by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for whom Davies helped raise funds by playing a virtual match last Saturday.His opponent was AC Milan goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, 32, another former refugee who fled to Germany from Bosnia as a young boy before also eventually settling in Canada.The pair went head-to-head in the eFootball PES2020 livestream tournament, organised by the UNHCR to help the 70 million refugees around the world.“Right now, the main focus is to raise money to help get refugees whatever they need,” said Davies in a video press conference Tuesday in Munich.“Obviously social distancing is tough for them with things so compact (in the camps) and if corona hits one of those refugee camps, it could be a disaster.“I just want to use my platform to spread the word and help as much as possible.“They (UNHCR) helped me out when I was in a camp and I wanted to support them.”The online game raised around 9,000 euros ($9,755) in donations.last_img read more
