Mats Wilander is concerned about Emma Raducanu's new coach

Emma Raducanu split from her previous coach after winning the US Open. (Author: Gardener)

Mats WilanderFormer world number 1 Mats Wilander has questioned whether Emma Raducanu made the right decision to hire a seasoned coach like Torben Beltz at such a young age. The 19-year-old confirmed earlier this month that she would bond with Angelique Kerber's former coach, having been without a permanent mentor since breaking up with Andrew Richardson shortly after her historic US Open triumph. Raducanu will start her first full season on the WTA Tour next year with Beltz in her box, but Wilander thinks the Brit should still get on her feet and develop her own game before having to follow the methods of an experienced coach . “We must remember that it wasn't like we didn't know who she was. We knew she was having a huge game, ”the seven-time Grand Slam winner told Eurosport. "You [young players] have to play the way they want to play and they have to find out how good they are and they have to ride the wave of youth and confidence as much as possible before you start hiring coaches like that are as good as possible. " have helped players win grand slams. “She knows how to win a Grand Slam. She has to have fun, she has to be allowed to do what she wants next to and on the tennis court, and she has to develop in her time and not force a trainer on her. “I'm not saying that Torben Beltz isn't ... he's a great coach, he obviously coached Angie Kerber for a long time. I think it helped her win Grand Slam tournaments, but Angie Kerber still knew how to do it. ”Wilander encouraged Raducanu not to get in the way of Alexander Zverev, who was with the former for a short time World number 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero worked together before turning to veteran coach Ivan Lendl early on, which didn't take long either. He believes that Raducanu needs to trust her own judgment and game, and not let too many people affect their careers so early on in their journey. "I just find it unnecessary to have experienced coaches when you're dealing with an 18-year-old who is fresh and full of life," added Wilander. Otherwise, there is a very, very good chance that people will prevent Emma from becoming a great player. “I think she has to be able to do that herself. He was forced to try these superstar coaches. This is not possible with an 18-year-old. “They have to grow up in their own time and I'm sorry for Emma Raducanu, but having too many voices in your head is not a good idea. The only voice she has to listen to is her own. "

See you soon, Mauricio? The optimistic Pochettino returns home with the PSG squad

The Argentine coach went out of his way to get his autograph for the fans at the airport as he remained optimistic despite his PSG side losing 2-1 to Man City the night before. (Author: Gardener)

PSGA cheerful Mauricio Pochettino waved to fans and signed autographs when he and his PSG team arrived at Manchester Airport on Thursday morning for their flight back to Paris. The Argentine coach went out of his way to get his signature signed for the fans in the departure lounge as he remained optimistic despite his side losing a one-goal lead before losing 2-1 to Manchester City in the Champions League. The 49-year-old smiled at the numerous fans and photographers who waved him off, while other members of the PSG squad didn't look that happy. Mauricio Pochettino (right) waves to fans as he arrives at Manchester Airport on Thursday early Thursday morning through the departure lounge at the airport. Mbappe started the game at Etihad, but PSG's ridiculous top three-man failed to prevent the defeat in Manchester. Pochettino's disappointing return to England has to do with the vacant leadership position at Manchester United, with the Red Devils continuing their quest to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The former Tottenham coach is wanted by United and is also said to be open to the idea of ​​moving to Old Trafford in the middle of the season after he became unsettled in the French capital. While Pochettino remained optimistic when he arrived at the airport, he refused to attribute his side's 2-1 defeat to speculation about his future. "The players know our situation very well," said Pochettino when asked if he should have reassured them because of his involvement with PSG. You can't talk about that - the rumors. ' Pochettino is one of the favorites for the United job but may struggle to remove him from Parc des Princes as PSG intend to keep him. The signs suggest PSG would be reluctant to let the Argentine leave mid-season and disrupt his campaign. Pochettino is known to be interested in the post and even happily signed United shirts on Wednesday at The Lowry Hotel, where PSG stayed before clashing with City. (Left to right) Messi, Mbappe and Neymar are dejected in their 2-1 loss to City United. They will now focus on the strategy introduced after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's layoff over the weekend and step up their search for an interim manager to take over from caretaker Michael Carrick. Former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde and ex-Lyon coach Rudi Garcia have already held talks with United's football director John Murtough. But sources in Germany said Wednesday night that Rangnick is keeping the idea of ​​a short-term stint cool. Pochettino has been linked to the vacant leadership position at Manchester United, refusing to blame speculation about his future for his side's defeat, providing stability and momentum while giving them the freedom to install a permanent replacement at the end of the season . It also suggests that United know their preferred destination won't be available until the summer - whether it's Pochettino or someone else. While the search for an interim continues, Michael Carrick will remain in charge of Sunday's trip to Chelsea after beating Villarreal with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.

Pep Guardiola'sManchester City sealed their place in the Champions League round of 16 as group winners after beating Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium. City dominated the opening 45 minutes but failed to make a breakthrough as Mauricio Pochettino, heavily linked with the vacant job at Manchester United ahead of the game, saw his PSG side were under pressure from the hosts. Pep Guardiola's side had to pay for their waste early in the second half when Kylian Mbappe gave Ligue 1 leaders the lead against the run of the game. City stormed back, however, with goals from Raheem Sterling and substitute Gabriel Jesus completing the turnaround to secure a place in the knockout phase with one game before the end. With the win, Guardiola's men, who are aiming for their first Champions League title, are also at the top of Group A with a game to go, while PSG despite the defeat in Manchester because of Club Bruges 5-0 defeat by RB Leipzig. Despite the lack of key offensive players like Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish, Manchester City started firmly on their forefoot and built a number of clear chances as they dominated most of the first 45 minutes. Mahrez was heavily involved in the action for City in the first half and the visitors needed Achraf Hakimi to deflect the Algerian's shot over the bar. City persisted as they pushed PSG further back and hit the post through Ilkay Gundogan despite the sideline flag hoisted and Keylor Navas making a fine save to his right to fend off Mahrez. Neymar lunged before passing the ball through for Mbappe, but the French striker's early shot flew over Ederson's crossbar. Despite City's dominance in the first half, they were caught when PSG crashed out of their traps early in the second half. Lionel Messi and Neymar were both heavily involved as the visitors attacked from below before Messi's deflected cross fell friendly to Mbappe, who shot through Ederson's legs to give PSG the lead against the run of the game. The turnaround was complete with 14 minutes to go when Bernardo Silva put on an exquisite touch to play Mahrez's cross in the path of Jesus, who came in the back corner and placed City in the final 16. "It was a real football game and City deserved it. They created so many chances and were the better team. In the first half you didn't really see PSG's top three." But in the second half we saw what they were be able to do Mbappé with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian. You scored a really good team goal. It was a really positive performance by Man City and Pep Guardiola will be happy about the three points that seal the top spot in the group. "It's a big statement from City against a superstar PSG team!" Man City coach Pep Guardiola: "It was a good game. The feeling of danger when they have the ball in the last third is terrible, but we did a good job again. In the first half the chances were unfortunate we had." We couldn't convert and they have the quality out of nowhere. After the goal we suffer for five to 10 minutes, but after that with our people - thanks for the support - it was a nice night "I always think that we will work with these players [(Messi, Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria] as far as they are from our goal) are safer The action where Neymar stood in front of the goalkeeper and missed so they figured out of nowhere ... they're closed good on the offensive! PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino: "Yes, disappointed, but City at the same time, they played well in the first half and forced us to play deeper. To be honest, I think we have to pay tribute to Man City." But second half, it's true, after going 0-0 in the first half we scored, we were calm because we c control them very well. The circumstances of the game changed a bit and we conceded two goals. Man City is a very good team. But we beat Man City in Parc de Princes, we lost here. The difference here is the draw against Bruges and Leipzig, that's why we finished second, not because of the two games we played against Man City. "Riyad Mahrez was a thorn in the side of PSG most of the time and he can count himself bad luck, that he was not crowned Man of the Game, but it was very difficult to ignore Bernardo Silva, who was at the center of Man City's dominant performance, Manchester City's victory securing victory in the Champions League group for fifth Season in a row - after Manchester United between 2006/07 and 2010/11 only the second English team to make it in the current format of the competition but lost a Champions League game Raheem Sterling scored his 23rd Champions League goal , with Wayne Rooney, 30, and Paul Scholes, 24, the only Englishmen to score higher than the Man City star, PSG's Kylian Mbappe became the second youngest outfield player to become 50 champion in the game has achieved ns league appearances (according to Cesc Fabregas).
