Press Association Here Press Association Sport’s Olawale Kuponipe takes a look at the list of departures in recent seasons. TOBY ALDERWEIRELD Now 26, the Belgian centre-back joined the Saints on loan from Atletico Madrid having formed a formidable partnership with Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen at Ajax. Alderweireld was a centrepiece in a Ronald Koeman defence which conceded 33 goals in the Premier League last season, second only to champions Chelsea. With fellow Belgian international team-mates Nacer Chadli, Moussa Dembele and Vertonghen, Alderweireld will now ply his trade in north London after joining Tottenham for an undisclosed fee from Atletico, despite Southampton believing they had an option to buy the centre-back for £6.8million. NATHANIEL CLYNE Clyne developed into a consistent performer in Southampton’s defence since joining the club in 2012. An impressive 2014-15 campaign helped him earn his first England cap in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia. Liverpool signed the 24-year-old defender for a reported £12.5million fee on a five-year deal this summer, joining former team mates Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren at the Merseyside club. RICKIE LAMBERT Having spent the majority of his career in the lower leagues, Lambert joined Southampton in 2009. The striker became the driving force in Southampton’s back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League, winning Championship Player of the Year award with 27 goals. The forward went on to score 28 goals in 75 games in his two seasons in the Premier League before “fulfilling a dream” and joining boyhood idols Liverpool for £4million. Now 33, he has failed to make an impact at the Merseyside club thus far, scoring twice in 25 games. DEJAN LOVREN After spending three-and-a-half years at Lyon, winning the 2012 Coupe de France, Southampton beat off stiff competition from Inter Milan and Tottenham to land the Croatian centre-back. Lovren spent one season at St Mary’s, helping Saints to an impressive eighth-placed Premier League finish. Liverpool continued their Southampton summer spree by making Lovren, now 26, their third signing from the south-coast club – moving to Anfield for £20million. Lovren’s Liverpool career has been marred with a number of inconsistent performances including the penalty shoot-out defeat to Beşiktaş where his skied penalty attempt lead to elimination in the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League. ADAM LALLANA Southampton have had great success in bringing talent through their own academy and signing players who prove to have good sell-on value. Lallana joined Southampton at the age of 12 and became a prominent figure at the club, playing a huge role in back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League. The midfielder made his England debut in a 2-0 friendly defeat to Chile at Wembley and has gone on to earn 15 caps for his country. An impressive 2013-14 season saw Lallana score nine goals and provide five assists in 37 games, ensuring him a place alongside fellow team-mate Luke Shaw in the 2014 PFA Team of the Year. Following England’s World Cup exit, Brendan Rodgers made Lallana his second summer signing, securing a £25million deal for the former Saints skipper. LUKE SHAW Shaw emerged into one of the most promising prospects to emerge from the Saints academy. His Premier League performances saw him rewarded with a place in the 2013-14 PFA Team of the Year. The full-back made his England debut against Denmark in a 1-0 friendly win, replacing Ashley Cole at half-time . A host of clubs were queueing up to sign the teenager, but Manchester United eventually signed him for £31million last summer, although injury marred the 19-year-old’s first Old Trafford campaign.

Powered by Firework Sports Authority of India (SAI) has decided to lengthen the contracts of 32 foreign coaches until next year, so the athletes continue to receive their training uninterrupted until the Tokyo Olympics next year.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Ingimage/AFPThe novel Coronavirus pandemic caused the postponement of 2020 Olympics for the first time since the Second World War. Originally scheduled to take place between 24 July and 9 August this year, the Tokyo Olympics have now been pushed back a whole year.Postponing the Olympics has been the reason of a huge disruption in the training schedule for the athletes of the country. Meanwhile, the contracts of the 32 foreign coaches in 11 disciplines were supposed to end this September.Advertisement To ensure that the athletes can continue receiving mentorship under the same coaches, SAI has now extended all of their contracts until 30th September, 2021, well before the Olympic Games which will take place from 23rd July to 8th August, followed by the Paralympics which is scheduled from 24th August to 5th September next year.“The postponement of Tokyo Olympics by a year makes it imperative that the same coaches be retained so that athletes are not disadvantaged in any way,” Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju worded in on the decision.Advertisement “A new coach takes time to understand an athlete and the athlete needs time to understand the training process of a coach. We don’t have that kind of time now,” he added.The interim extension of the coaches has come in the wake of Rijiju’s decision to hire both Indian and foreign national coaches for a period of at least four years or a full Olympic cycle.“This decision is part of India’s long-term roadmap for Olympic preparation for 2024 and 2028. I am confident our athletes will benefit from this,” Rijiju said back in Early July, while also adding that the decision will be beneficial for both the 2022 Asian Games and the World Championships in 2023.However, the four year contract will be reviewed annually by the respective NSFs, and any further extension will be taken into consideration on the basis of the performance of the coaches.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-WADA slaps 6 month ban on India’s National Dope Testing Lab for disregarding best practicesIceland cricket in disarray due to shortage of kits!
