City whispers inspired Caballero

first_img Press Association Caballero, who will replace released Romanian Costel Pantilimon in the squad, said: “I knew that Manchester City were interested in me so I tried to do my best for my previous club to make the move to a very big club possible, and finally it’s a reality and I will try to prove myself.” Even though he has principally been signed as back-up to Hart, Caballero hopes he can push on at City and earn full international recognition. Caballero won the Under-20 World Cup with Argentina in 2001 and was also a member of the 2004 Olympic gold medal-winning squad. He said: “The first goal is to do things well and show why City were interested in me. “Obviously it would be good to get back with the national team and hopefully I can achieve that.” Caballero believes playing under Manuel Pellegrini, his former manager at Malaga, will give him the confidence to succeed. Getting the chance to work with Pellegrini again was one of the main attractions of City to Caballero. Pellegrini signed the former Boca Juniors keeper for Malaga from Elche in 2011. He went on to become a key figure in the Andalusian club’s rise to prominence in Spain, which included a run to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2013. Caballero, who is City’s third summer signing after Bacary Sagna and Fernando, said: “I think his best quality is giving players the confidence to achieve their potential.” The Argentinian goalkeeper joined the Barclays Premier League champions in a £4.4million move from Spanish outfit Malaga. The 32-year-old will provide competition for first-choice Joe Hart, the England number one, at the Etihad Stadium. center_img Manchester City’s new signing Willy Caballero has revealed how word of the club’s interest motivated him last season.last_img read more

Team Dignitas fail to secure NA LCS spot

first_imgIt was reported last week that Golden State Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob has secured a North American League of Legends Championship Series slot as the first non-endemic brand to secure a slot under Riot Games’ new system. ESPN has now reported that Team Dignitas is the first existing NA LCS team to miss out on a slot moving forward.The report suggests that Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends, started notifying applicants of the results last week, so one would assume details will soon officially emerge of which teams have missed out, and who the new players in the league will be. The report also suggests that Team Dignitas is not the only existing team in the league to be notified of its removal.With Dignitas set to leave the LCS, it will be entered into a pool for compensation for an exit fee, alongside other teams that do not secure a spot under the new franchise system. As a result of not securing a spot for next year, Dignitas must, per Riot instructions, sell or terminate the contracts of Benjamin “LOD” DeMunck and Lee “Shrimp” Byeong-hoon who have contracts going into 2018. The remaining contracts end on November 20th, the day before the opening of next season’s transfer window. Team Dignitas would not have been an organisation that many would have anticipated missing out on a slot in the new franchised system. The parent organisation of the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils acquired Team Dignitas back in 2016, and thus the funding is most definitely there. It was the first example of an organisation being acquired by a sports team’s ownership group rather than just one individual member. Esports Insider says: Big, big news this. Dignitas and the 76ers are most definitely an organisation that we wouldn’t have expected to miss out. With the Golden State Warriors securing a spot but the 76ers missing out despite having an existing affinity to esports we’re wholly intrigued about who has missed out.last_img read more
