Mbappe knew all the results of the second division in France.‘Nicolas Pepe is like that. He’s another example of the importance of a player liking football.‘After a game he watches the whole game again two times, to make himself more perfect.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityCampos has bought and sold some incredible talents during his time at Monaco and Lille – such as Bernardo Silva and Anthony Martial – though says Fabinho is the one he is most proud of.He continued: ‘I remember I went to the Copa Sao Paulo [Junior Football Competition] to see Fluminense who had a top team, some very good players.

Angels lose amid tributes to Mike Scioscia on the eve of the season’s final game

first_img“It’s been great,” said Kole Calhoun, who made his major league debut in 2012. “Coming up here and playing for one manager for seven years, it’s been a long time. You definitely build a relationship over that span. It’s been fun. We’ve had some good times and some bad times and he’s stayed pretty even-keeled. Definitely a lot of respect.”Tyler Skaggs, who started Saturday’s game, has played for Scioscia since 2014.“He’s definitely been an influential person in my career,” Skaggs said earlier this week. “We’ve had our ups and downs and butted heads. But he’s definitely been my biggest advocate at times.”Skaggs admitted to “mixed emotions” regarding Scioscia, but he felt overall positive about his time with him. “I think he’s been a big supporter and at times he’s been tough,” Skaggs said. “He’s tough on young guys. But I have a lot of respect for him.”Scioscia’s highlight reel was packed from 2000 to 2009, when the Angels went to the postseason six times, but it’s been more sparse lately. Scioscia’s Angels never had two losing seasons in a row before 2016-17, but on Saturday night they locked up their third straight losing season by losing their 82nd game.Skaggs, pitching his third game since missing a month recovering from a groin injury, gave up a two-run homer to Khris Davis in the first inning and got knocked out in the fourth.Skaggs allowed three runs in 3-1/3 innings, finishing his season with 4.02 ERA. Skaggs’ ERA had been under 4.00 the entire season until the end. It had been as low as 2.62 in late July, but then he twice tried to pitch through the groin injury and gave up 17 runs.“I thought the first half was fantastic,” Skaggs said after the game. “It was a career best for me. The second half … it’s tough to pitch in the big leagues when you’re healthy and it’s even tougher when you’re fighting through something. This last month has not been fun for me personally. It’s going to leave a nice sour taste in my mouth to work hard and come back next year stronger.”Although pitching through the injury proved to be a mistake, Skaggs nonetheless provided some hope for the future by pitching very well when he was healthy. He also avoided any arm trouble for the second straight year.“I think if he can apply the lessons that he’s learned and some of the trials and tribulations and some of the successes, he can get better,” Scioscia said. “Right now the Achilles Heel of Tyler is getting healthy and staying healthy… In the meantime, he pitched some great baseball for us.”The Angels cut the lead to 3-1 on Kaleb Cowart’s RBI single in the fifth, but then Jed Lowrie answered with a solo homer against Jim Johnson in the sixth.In the seventh, the Angels scored a run and loaded the bases for Mike Trout, but Trout hit a flyout to deep right field to end the inning. Trout, who is making his final case for the MVP award, went hitless in four at-bats.
