Tests rule out serious injury for Barca defender Lenglet

first_imgBarca defender Clement LengletKampala, Uganda | XINHUA | There was good news for FC Barcelona on Monday when tests showed that central defender Clement Lenglet has only suffered a minor groin injury and will be fit for their Champions League return leg game against Napoli on August 8.Lenglet was forced out of Barca’s 5-0 win away to Alaves that ended the La Liga season on Sunday in the 48th minute and quickly disappeared into the dressing room.With Samuel Umtiti already out of action with a long-standing knee problem and only B-team defender Ronald Araujo to give back up to the veteran Gerard Pique, a serious injury for Lenglet would have been a major blow for Barca’s Champions League hopes as the club looks to avoid ending the season without a title.However, Barca coach Quique Setien will breathe a bit easier after the tests shows that Lenglet has not suffered any tear to his groin and will have no problem being fit for the vital European game. ****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Langley is top seed in South Africa

first_img27 Feb 2018 Langley is top seed in South Africa Tags: South Africa Englishman David Langley fired a big warning shot when he won the 36-hole qualifier in the Sanlam South African Amateur Championship by four shots yesterday.In today’s matchplay, where he’s joined by Jack Gaunt (Drayton Park, Staffordshire), Andrew Wilson (Darlington, Durham) and Callum Mackay (West Hill, Surrey), he promptly won his first round match 3/2.The 23-year-old Berkshire golfer threw down the gauntlet in the qualifier when he opened with a five-under-par 67 in the brutal conditions at Durban Country Club on Sunday.Langley backed up his bid for the Proudfoot Trophy with a two-under 70 and sealed the top spot for the match play stage on an aggregate score of seven-under-par 137.He’s the first English player to capture the trophy since Laurie Canter in 2010, who went on to win the championship.Named after eight-time SA Amateur champion Douglas Proudfoot, the Proudfoot Trophy boasts an illustrious list of past winners, including Mark McNulty, Hugh Baiocchi, Dale Hayes, Denis Hutchinson – the last amateur to win the SA Open – and Major winners Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Trevor Immelman. In recent years, European Tour winners Richard Sterne, Brandon Stone and Haydn Porteous also etched their names on the sought-after silverware.Langley was delighted to join the winners, but quickly added that this was just the curtain-raiser. “The real work starts now,” the Castle Royle golfer cautioned.“I am really pleased and very proud, but I’ve been in this position before. Last year I shot 14-under-par to win the 36-hole qualifier for the English Amateur at the Berkshire and got knocked out in the first round. So don’t pop the champagne just yet. If all goes well, I’ll celebrate on Friday.”Caption: David Langley with the Proudfoot Trophy (Image courtesy GolfRSA).Click here for more informationlast_img read more
