Cherundolo the captain of Hannover

Steven Cherundolo has been named as the new captain of Bundesliga club Hannover.

The USA international inherits the armband from Hanno Ballitsch, who left the club to join Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

Before Ballitsch, Robert Enke had worn the armband since 2007 until his death last November.

Cherundolo is currently Hannover's longest-serving player, having arrived from the States in 1999. He has just put pen to paper on a new three-year contract with the Reds.

Karim Haggui and Christian Schulz have been named as vice-captains.

Liverpool FC boss Roy Hodgson: "Fernando Torres is relishing his Reds return"

FERNANDO TORRES has no intention of quitting Liverpool FC, Roy Hodgson insisted today.

The new Liverpool boss described mass speculation linking Torres with a possible move away from Anfield as"erroneous" and said he was looking forward to Torres returning to training at Melwood on Monday.

Hodgson said, "As far as I know, he's looking forward to coming back here on Monday.

"He's enjoying a holiday which is a well-deserved break - he's spending a lot of time with his family and as far as I know, he's keeping a very low level and not really speaking to anyone.

"But he has told us that he's looking forward to Monday, looking forward to getting back to work and looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season.

"That's what I know so all other reports, I would suggest, are erroneous."

Hodgson also confirmed Javier Mascherano has asked to leave the club but he insisted the Argentinian skipper would only leave if and when the club decided he could.

Said Hodgson, "He wants to leave the club, he's made that perfectly clear.

"He wanted to leave a year ago and he wants to leave now as well but he's contracted to Liverpool Football Club so whether he leaves or not will be our decision."

The Süper Lig is a Turkish professional league for association football clubs. It's the top-flight of the Turkish football league system. Eighteen clubs compete annually, where a champion is decided and three clubs are promoted and relegated to and from the 1.Lig. The season runs from August to May, with each club playing 34 matches. Matches are usually played on Saturdays and Sundays, although some matches take place on Friday or Monday. It is sponsored by Turkcell and therefore officially known as the Turkcell Süper Lig.

Barcelona posts big financial losses

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Spanish champions Barcelona posted a loss last season of around 77 million euros, its first deficit in seven years, instead of a profit as claimed by the previous board, the club said on Tuesday.

The previous board, led by former Barcelona president Joan Laporta, announced at the end of their mandate in late June that the Catalan side had made a profit of 11 million euros (14.2 million dollars) in the 2009-10 season.

But an external audit carried out by Deloitte for new Barcelona president Sandro Rossel -- who took over on July 1 -- determined that Barcelona are actually 77.1 million euros in the red.

The new audit puts Barcelona's total net debt at a record 442 million euros.

"The figures presented by the former board don't reflect the real image," said Barcelona's vice-president for economic affairs Javier Faus.
"There is a structural problem. The sporting excellence in the last few years has not been reflected in economic excellence. The new board's goal is to bring economic excellence alongside sporting excellence," he added.

Footballers Singing

Well my USA girls got bounced from the U20 Word Cup by Nigeria. I'm a little sad about it. Sad for the Mexican Ladies too. But shit ya Colombia! I hope they make it to the finals. On to what this post is really about. Footballers singing. 


I saw this video of the lovely and talented U-20 USA international Teresa Noyola singing in Portuguese and Spanish and thought I'd share. I also added some of my other favorite videos of footballers singing. Please add yours if you got them. And hell, add footballers dancing or fan songs too!

her Portuguese song (@2:35). Spanish one under the cut.
