Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho not content with just finishing above Arsenal

first_imgLONDON: Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho stated he isn’t content with just finishing over Arsenal in the Premier League table and reiterated his desire to help the club secure a place in next season’s Europa League. Spurs got the better of Arsenal in the London Derby 2-1 on Sunday and courtesy of that win, they now have two points more than Mikel Arteta’s troops and are placed at eighth spot compared to Gunners’ ninth. Mourinho said that finishing above Arsenal will hand bragging rights only to the fans. Historically, Arsenal have finished above Spurs more times in the league but in the last three years, the latter have turned out be the London club who have been on top at the end of the season. “That is a fan’s view. I have to be more ambitious than that,” Mourinho said during a news conference as per Goal.com. “I know I could look at in a selfish point of view and say since I arrived, if the championship started in that moment, even with all the problems we had I think we would now be fourth or fifth in the table. “I don’t want to be selfish, I don’t want to look at it just as a fan that is happy to finish above Arsenal,” he added. Mourinho also urged his players to continue the form and secure a place in next year’s Europa League. The last time Mourinho was part of a team in the Europa League, he took Manchester United to the title and thus helped them gain a position in the Champions League. “I would love to play Europa League. It is not a competition I am in love with, it is not a competition I would like very much to play, but when you cannot play Champions League you play Europa League,” Mourinho said.

Lakers’ Kobe Bryant says Lamar Odom is ‘doing well,’ though challenges await

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Hospital officials have restricted visits to the former Lakers and Clippers forward in hopes of aiding his recovery, sources said.Yet Bryant declined to divulge the day-to-day progress or struggles Odom has experienced in recent days. “I’m not going to sit here and give you information that you can probably get off of TMZ right now,” Bryant said. “So he’s doing well.” “He’s a brother above everything else,” Bryant said Tuesday at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo. “I’m supporting him to get back on his feet. It’s amazing to see him doing so well. It truly is remarkable.”Bryant and Odom played together with the Lakers for seven years, an era that spanned three NBA Finals appearances and two NBA championships. But Bryant’s affection for Odom goes beyond experiencing success on the hardwood. “It put things in perspective even more,” Bryant said. “This is what we do. This is not who we are. Sometimes basketball can get in the way of life and in the way of living.” Odom has made tremendous strides to ensure he stays living. For the past two weeks, he made improvements with his breathing, vision and talking. But plenty of challenges await. Odom will likely need a kidney transplant, according to sources familiar with his situation. Odom has received dialysis treatment that has lasted six to seven hours per day. But that will not improve the condition of his kidneys. Odom has also been experiencing fatigue amid his early stages of physical therapy, sources said. center_img Any concerns Kobe Bryant may have had over bruising his lower left leg quickly subsided.
