Ramsey: Fear grips Juve star over getting fat during COVID-19 lockdown

first_imgAnd with Serie A still suspended, Rambo admits he has concerns about keeping the weight off as he is a foodie.He said: “I’ve been doing the programmes the club have sent over, keeping fit most days.“But it’s not the same as training or playing games where you don’t have any worries about putting on weight.“It’s difficult because my wife likes to cook and I like to eat so it’s not a good combination. When I am back at it I am pretty strict but it’s difficult at the moment.“I’ve got all the kids biscuits and I’m just raiding that every time I go for a cup of tea!“Hopefully we get out of this as soon as possible and get back to normal because it’s difficult.”Ramsey has shown his class and generosity during the pandemic by donating £23,000 to three charities back in his homeland of Wales.He added in an Instagram live with singer Niall Horan: “I want to raise my glass to all the doctors and nurses. They have done a fantastic job and they make us very proud and lucky to what we have in place.”Prior to the enforced break on the pitch last month, Ramsey had helped Italian leaders Juve towards the title — which would be the first league crown of his career.Ramsey and Co lead Lazio by one point but the Welshman, in his debut season in Italy since his free transfer from Arsenal, is keen for more success in the Champions League and Coppa Italia if and when the season resumes.Ramsey said: “It was a nice position to be in but it’s a mad situation at the moment. Nobody knows what is going to happen now.“But one of the main reasons for coming to Juventus was to win league titles and challenge for Champions Leagues.“Juve are a massive club, one of the biggest in Europe.

Syracuse’s depth put on display as talented freshmen all see playing time in win over Fairleigh Dickinson

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 12, 2012 at 12:24 am Contact Kevin: kmprisei@syr.edu When Quentin Hillsman released his starting lineup for Syracuse’s season opener, it looked a lot different than last season’s.Freshmen Brianna Butler, Cornelia Fondren and Brittney Sykes all got the starting nod, while veterans Rachel Coffey and Carmen Tyson-Thomas began the game on the bench.“They were playing well all preseason and coming into this first game,” Hillsman said. “Rachel Coffey and Carmen Tyson-Thomas had to really be team players, and they are, and they were when we announced who was starting.”Fourteen Orange players saw action on in SU’s season-opening 94-47 win over Fairleigh Dickinson on Sunday in the Carrier Dome, a statement of the team’s abundant depth in 2012-13. Hillsman said before the season that he expected nine to 11 players to see significant time — which he defined postgame as double-digit minutes — this season. With five game-ready freshmen poised to join the veteran cast, SU’s depth had the potential on paper to serve as one of the team’s biggest assets.Hillsman strives to foster a fast-paced, up-tempo style of play, which is best executed when players rotate in and out of play frequently, he said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Our goal is to play 10 or 11 players double-figure minutes every night,” Hillsman said. “If we’re going to play this fast and really play this way, we have to get bodies in the game. It’s just a must.”The depth was on full display on Sunday.Ten Orange players saw double-digit minutes. The scoring was spread across the board as well, with five players in double figures.The freshmen showed from the start that they were ready to complement their incumbent teammates and contribute. With SU up 3-0 in the opening minutes, Sykes drove into the lane and drew contact, leading to a free throw for her first collegiate point. Shortly after, Sykes made her defensive presence felt with a block.The highly touted Sykes finished with 11 points on Sunday, and she was joined in double figures by fellow freshman Butler. With Syracuse leading 7-3, a block by SU center Kayla Alexander led to a fast break that ended with a 3-pointer by Butler from the left corner. Butler saw 21 minutes of action against FDU, making her first four shots and finishing 4-of-6 from the field.“Obviously, starting as a freshman, it’s nerve-wracking and plenty nervous,” Butler said. “But Coach told us to just go out there and play our game, slow it down and that’s what we did.”With the freshmen proving their coach’s optimistic preseason words true, the upperclassmen had a chance to get more rest during the game than they may have had in prior years. Among those taking advantage was Alexander, who made a push for a rare triple-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 8 blocks in a team-high 29 minutes.For Alexander, the chance to get rest is an important asset that the newcomers can help provide.“They can shoot; they’re all scoring threats,” Alexander said. “Everybody’s going to have to play them from day one. That helps a lot; it will allow a lot of seniors and upperclassmen to get some rest time.”The Orange opened up a long season that has the potential to extend for five months. The ability to go 14 deep is an indication of the team’s health right now, the value of which cannot be understated, Hillsman said.With the freshmen contributing immediately, the class showed the potential to make its presence felt throughout the season.“Our freshmen were amazing today,” Hillsman said. “I’m very, very happy for them. (They did) just what I thought they would do, come in and be immediate impact players.” Commentslast_img read more
