Arsenal and Liverpool-linked striker insists he is happy at Juventus

first_img1 Alvaro Morata Arsenal and Liverpool target Alvaro Morata has cooled talk of a return to Real Madrid.The frontman has hit three goals for Juventus this season – including two in the Champions League – and has become a fans’ favourite in Turin.The Spaniard, who turned down a move to Arsenal before joining Juve in the summer of 2014, has a clause in his contract which allows Real to take him back to the Bernabeu.But the 22-year-old – also said to be on Arsenal and Liverpool’s radar –  would prefer to remain in Italy for the time being.“What the papers say about there being a buyback clause for me to go back to Real Madrid is true,” Morata told Radio Marca.“However, some things are more important than clauses and a person’s happiness must be considered.“If we win the Champions League final at the San Siro then I will walk back to Turin.”last_img read more

Alan Pardew bemoans refereeing decisions after Crystal Palace denied win at Everton

first_img1 Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew claims referee Craig Pawson denied his side all three points after a 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park.Romelu Lukaku cancelled out Scott Dann’s opener in a frantic finale on Merseyside as both top-four hopefuls maintained their impressive starts to the season.Palace felt aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty when Gareth Barry appeared to haul down Mile Jedinak, and Pardew felt the incident should have been obvious to Pawson.He said: “We still almost won and, but for a couple of refereeing decisions which, in my opinion he got wrong, we could have won it.“Sometimes you can win when you perhaps don’t deserve to and that could have happened if those decisions went our way.“I think it was obvious from where I was standing that [Jedinak’s] shirt was being pulled, but the referee and linesman didn’t see it, which I was surprised at.”The result leaves Palace sixth and just two points behind London rivals Tottenham.

Because it was a weekday, the beach was not crowded, giving the pilot room to land. However, the landing was a close call for one beachgoer, who said she was sunbathing and listening to music with earplugs when she heard a loud noise, opened her eyes and saw one of the plane’s wings go over her head. The plane’s passenger said he was given the flight on the stunt plane as a birthday present. He said the pilot was doing acrobatic stunts over the ocean and was about to return to Fullerton when the engine started sputtering. last_img read more
