Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United are in ‘a good position’

201

Jose Mourinho has issued another strong defence of his record at Manchester United in his programme notes ahead of Swansea’s visit to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Two weeks on from United’s demoralising authentic nfl jerseys Champions League exit to Sevilla, Mourinho insisted the club are “in transition” and that finishing second in the Premier League behind Manchester City this season would represent progress.

“It is clear for everyone to see that this club is in a moment of transition,” he wrote in United Review. “In the history of football all around the world, all of the biggest clubs have phases of continuous victories and phases of transition, and these cycles go on.

“Despite this, last season we managed to win two major trophies, including the only competition this club had never won — the Europa League — and we also returned to the Champions League.”

After winning the Carabao Cup and the Europa League this season, Mourinho could add a third trophy in two seasons if United win the FA Cup. They face Tottenham in the semifinals next month before a potential final against either Chelsea and Southampton in May.

Mourinho added: “This season, we are through to the semifinal of the FA Cup and our aim, of course, will be to try to win it. We are also aiming to qualify for the Champions League again, while moving forward from last season’s sixth-place finish to secure a second-place finish in the Premier League table.

“I think this club is in a good position. We are always looking to the future, and in the future, wholesale nfl jerseys of course, we want to be the top team in the Premier League. That is not realistic this season so, in the meantime, we must do all we can to secure second place.”

The report of three years, $39 million for Richard Sherman may be “a mirage”

You know the drill by now. Player agrees to terms. Numbers get leaked to reporter who passes them along without scrutiny, analysis, or caveat. Real numbers come out later, nike nfl jerseys for cheap exposing that the initial number was a lie.

Multiple league sources, based on history and some of the details already emerging about the deal signed Saturday night by cornerback Richard Sherman in San Francisco, predict that the three-year, $39 million package first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media) is “a mirage.”

Already, signs are emerging that the deal may not be what it seems. Josina Anderson of ESPN tweeted on Saturday night that Sherman told her the deal is worth “up to $39.15 million.” The key words there are “up to,” because it implies a ceiling based on incentives and other payments tied to playing time or performance. Which means that Sherman’s base deal is lower than $39.15 cheap nike nfl jerseys china million.gettyimages-459771512-e1520776077386

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media has since posted the breakdown for the first year: $5 million signing bonus, $2 million base salary (there’s no mention as to whether it’s guaranteed, but as a practical matter it most likely is), $2 million in 46-man per-game roster bonuses, $1 million playing-time incentives, and a $3 million Pro Bowl incentive. (One source cautions that the “Pro Bowl” incentive may be an “All-Pro” incentive, which is harder to achieve since only two are selected for the entire league.)

Per Pelissero, if Sherman makes it to the Pro Bowl (or, possibly, All-Pro), $16 million of the deal becomes fully guaranteed over 2019 and 2020.

While those details aren’t nearly enough to show that the “three-year, $39 million”new nike nfl jerseys cheap  figure is a “mirage” (Pelissero may be trying to avoid committing NFL Media-on-NFL Media crime), it’s a strong clue that the contract isn’t what Rapoport reported it to be. Pelissero’s breakdown shows a maximum package of $13 million for 2018 (one third of $39 million), if Sherman dresses for all 16 regular-season games, achieves the total playing-time threshold, nfl jerseys nike cheap and make it to the NFC Pro Bowl team (or, possibly, the AP All-Pro team.)

Soon enough, the real numbers will emerge. And it could be the first example of what perhaps will be multiple instances of a common dynamic in the reporting of NFL contracts: In order to be buy nike nfl jerseys cheap first, reporters often will willingly be not entirely accurate.
