Courtois keen on Benteke

first_img Courtois added of the former Genk forward in quotes reported by the Spanish press: “I know him well, we played together when we were young. Benteke is a player who has worked hard, he left Genk and had several loans spells that has helped him grow. “He had a sensational 2011/12 season with Genk and that led to the attention from the Premier League.” Thibaut Courtois believes Belgium team-mate Christian Benteke could be just the man Atletico Madrid need to fill the sizeable gap left by Radamel Falcao’s big-money move to Monaco. Atletico snapped up Rayo Vallecano striker Leo Baptistao on Monday as they seek to replace the prolific Falcao and have also been linked with a number of other forwards. One of these is Benteke, who won himself a long list of admirers with his performances for Aston Villa last season. “He’s a very strong centre-forward, tall, but with very good technique and skilful with the ball at his feet,” said Courtois, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Atletico from Chelsea. “I think that he could be a great signing for Atletico. During these days with the national team and I’m going to ask him about his future.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Abbey career over after injury

first_img The six-times Group One winner was being prepared for a crack at the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot this weekend. However, the Aidan O’Brien-trained six-year-old has now run his last race with his owners, John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith hopeful that the vets can save him for a stud career. St Nicholas Abbey’s racing career is over after picking up a serious injury at Ballydoyle on Tuesday morning. A statement posted on the Coolmore twitter feed read: “St Nicholas Abbey suffered a serious career ending injury at Ballydoyle this morning, vets are currently attending to him. “We hope to save him for a career at stud, a further update will be posted later.” A son of recently deceased champion sire Montjeu, St Nicholas Abbey was champion two-year-old in 2009 when he crowned his season with a blistering display in the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster. He was a red-hot favourite for the 2000 Guineas the following year, but could only finish sixth behind Makfi, and was not seen again until the following April when beaten at the Curragh. He returned to something like his juvenile form when an easy winner of the Ormonde Stakes at Chester and went on to further Group One glory in the Coronation Cup at Epsom, a race he would win on a further two occasions. Arguably his two greatest successes came on the world stage, however. He won the Breeders’ Cup Turf in 2011 from Sea Moon, a victory which made his jockey Joseph O’Brien the youngest winner in Breeders’ Cup history, and as recently as March he landed the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan. St Nicholas Abbey won close to £5million in win and place prize money having won nine of his 21 races. He will undoubtedly leave a huge whole to fill at Ballydoyle. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
