20 Wednesday 9 May 2018 NEW ERA SPORT Wenger ‘surprised’ at job offers Arsene Wenger said yesterday that he was surprised by the number of job offers he has received since his departure from Arsenal was announced, urging the club to appoint his successor as soon as possible.

No documents will be returned. 22 years at the helm and was handed an emotional tribute from the club following Sunday’s 5-0 defeat of Burnley, his final game in charge at the Emirates Stadium. The 68-year-old has said he will take a break from football before deciding on his next move but revealed on Tuesday he has not been short of suitors since last month’s surprise announcement. Asked if he had received any offers, Wenger replied: “Yes, more than I expected! “At the moment I focus on doing my job well. I didn’t analyse anything or consider anything. I want to work well until the last day of my contract, and then after, I will rest a little bit and go from there.” Allegri, who is set to deliver a fourth successive Serie A title with Juventus, is reportedly the frontrunner but Carlo Ancelotti and Luis Enrique, both currently out of work, have been linked with the job. “I think the earlier, the better,” Wenger said when asked if an appointment should be made ahead of the World Cup, but he refused to be drawn on who he favoured. “People want hope and they need as well to prepare for the next season. I must say the squad doesn’t need much, because there’s a huge potential in there. Wozniacki, Sharapova into Madrid last 16 Maria Sharapova’s clay-court revival is gathering pace after the Russian eased past Romanian big-hitter Irina- Camelia Begu at the Madrid Open on Monday. Sharapova arrived in Spain on the back of four consecutive defeats, but two wins, the latest a 7-5, 6-1 victory over Begu, have sent the 31-year-old into the last 16. France’s Kristina Mladenovic will now await Sharapova, who is showing signs of rhythm ahead of the French Open later this month, which she won in 2012 and 2014. It was here in Madrid that Sharapova lost a heated contest to Eugenie Bouchard last year, in what was only her second tournament back following a 15-month suspension for taking the banned drug meldonium. Sharapova has struggled “There’s a good spirit, a good basis. It needs two or three additions and this team will compete for the championship next year.” Arsenal’s last two games of the season come on the road, with the club yet to take a point away from home since the turn of the year. Wenger is set to depart with the club finishing in sixth, the lowest position of his for form and fitness since, with a niggling thigh injury curtailing her comeback. She was trounced by Angelique Kerber at the Australian Open in January and went on to lose opening matches in Doha, Indian Wells and Stuttgart. But, now ranked 52nd in the world, Sharapova was aggressive from the baseline against Begu, and while there were a few more errors than she would have liked, she delivered in the pressure moments. After an exchange of breaks midway through the first set, Sharapova broke at 6-5 to clinch the frame after two booming forehand winners. Begu hit back with a break in the opening game of the second, but Sharapova responded with two breaks of her own, the second after a sweeping backhand into the Arsene Wenger reign, and with no silverware following their Europa League semifinal exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid last week. Captain Laurent Koscielny was carried off on a stretcher early on in Thursday’s 1-0 defeat in Spain and Wenger confirmed the 32-year-old is “devastated” as he faces up to six months on the sidelines with a ruptured Achilles. – Nampa/AFP corner. She never looked back and, leading 5-1, Sharapova sealed victory after 92 minutes when a Begu forehand hit the net. World No 2 Caroline Wozniacki survived a scare from Ashleigh Barty, edging the Australian 6-2 4-6 6-4 to reach the last-16. Wozniacki found herself on the brink of defeat as she trailed 4-2 in the final set, but the Dane roared back to claim the last four games to seal the victory. The 22-year-old Barty was ultimately let down by her groundstrokes in crucial stages of the decider as she finished with 54 unforced errors for the match. Wozniacki will next face former French Open semifinalist Kiki Bertens, who stunned 15th seed Anastasija Sevastova 6-1 6-4 in the second round. –Nampa/AFP

The 76-yearold, who suffered the haemorrhage on Saturday, remains in intensive care and there has been no official update on his condition from the Premier League club. But Britain’s Mail Online said the Scot, who retired in 2013, was out of a coma and showing promising early signs of recovery. “Surgery went very well and the 76-yearold’s response to treatment has given encouragement and cautious optimism to those close to him,” the report said. “However, they recognise it will still be a slow road to full recovery as he continues to be assessed. The prognosis is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of any developments,” a source told The Sun newspaper. One of the greatest managers in football history, Ferguson won 38 trophies in more than 26 years while in charge of United, including 13 Premier League titles and the Champions League twice. in from the football world and from those outside the game with United midfielder Michael Carrick saying the response shows the esteem in which his former boss is held. “The whole football world is incredible but outside of that as well, from all corners of the globe and different walks of life, people have shown their support,” he told MUTV. “That is the effect he had on people. It was the effect he had on everyone. He means a lot to me, as he does to this club. “We were all praying for him and thinking of him, Cathy and the family. It’s a tough time for everyone but I’m thinking positive and hoping he will pull through.” SPORT 21 Ferguson showing signs of recovery Wales manager Ryan Giggs, who was part of all of Ferguson’s 13 Premier League titlewinning teams after being given his debut as a 17-year-old in 1991, told the BBC: “I know the operation has been a success – but he what makes me think he will be able to make a recovery. “Now is the time to pray and hope he can make a full recovery. He has been the biggest both on and off the pitch.” Defender Phil Jones, one of a handful of players signed by Ferguson who is still at the club, added: “I know his character. I in him. Hopefully he’ll recover well. “He has got all his family and friends around him, the support from all the players and staff at Man United and football around the world.” United have thanked the many well-wishers, including Premier League managers Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, who have spoke of their admiration for Ferguson. Wenger enjoyed a long, and at times fractious rivalry with Ferguson as they battled for Premier League supremacy in Frenchman’s long reign in charge of Arsenal. However, they later became friends and with Wenger leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, Ferguson presented his old adversary with a visit to United’s Old Trafford ground just last weekend. “I was with him on the pitch last week. I went to see him in the box after the game and he looked in perfect shape,” said home game as Arsenal boss on Sunday. “He told me he is doing a lot of exercise, and he looked very happy but that kind of accident can happen. We wish him all well and to recover very quickly. He is a strong and optimistic man.” –Nampa/AFP
