    Football: DNA paternity test for Brazilian star Ronaldo

    SAO PAULO: Star Brazilian footballer Ronaldo said on Monday on his Twitter feed that he is undergoing a DNA test to determine whether he is the father of a five-year-old boy living in Singapore.

    "Life is full of surprises. After the sadness over yesterday's game (when his Corinthians team lost a national championship by drawing Sunday against rivals Goias), today I got to know Alex, a beautiful, polite and healthy boy," the 34-year-old player wrote.

    "Now we are waiting for the results of the test and will take on the responsibilities and pleasures that the results give us," he said.

    The mother of Alex, Michele Umezu, has been trying since 2009 to have Ronaldo recognized as the father and is demanding child support.

    She says she met Ronaldo in a party in Tokyo in 2002 celebrating Brazil's championship in the World Cup that year.

    Ronaldo, she says, returned to Tokyo in 2004 during a tour of Real Madrid, who he was playing for at the time. She said she became pregnant by him at that time.

    Reports said Michele Umezu was a 28-year-old Brazilian living in Singapore.

    Ronaldo, nicknamed the "Fenomeno," already has three children: a 10-year-old son with his ex, and two younger daughters, one aged one year and the other eight months, with his current wife Bia Anthony.

    He rose to prominence as a prolific striker in the mid-1990s, playing for European giants Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid and winning the World Cup with Brazil in 2002.

    Spurs and Liverpool eye Parker swoop
    December 6, 2010


    By Harry Harris, Football Correspondent

    Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have made Scott Parker their top January transfer target, but West Ham United are refusing to sell their prized asset.

    It would take a massive bid to persuade the Hammers to change their minds, but the club are expecting a renewed bid for their influential midfielder, who only recently signed a new record-breaking five-year contract.

    West Ham are perturbed to discover that their captain is once again a target after the club threatened to report Tottenham to the Premier League for their pursuit of Parker in August.

    Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had a 7 million offer turned down in August and West Ham are preparing to rebuff an improved 8 million bid.

    The club are shocked that a source from inside Upton Park apparently suggested that Parker wants to leave and that the club would reluctantly accept his request to switch to a big club. West Ham want Parker to stay and honour his new contract.

    But Spurs are not alone now in the hunt to prise Parker away. Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has money to spend in January after the Anfield takeover and has earmarked the midfielder as one of this top priorities.

    ESPNsoccernet reported in the summer that it would take an offer approaching 20 million to tempt the Hammers to even think about selling - and neither Spurs nor Liverpool would pay that much for a 30-year-old player.

    ManSipTea Fire-Sale!!



    City's wealthy owners are willing to swallow big losses on outgoing players, and pay what it takes to land the replacements Mancini believes will enable the club to cement a Champions League place.

    The surplus players are reported to be England internationals Joleon Lescott, Shaun Wright-Phillips, plus three centre-forwards, Emmanuel Adebayor, Roque Santa Cruz and Jo.




    i think SWP and lescott will be good signings for us!

    NoGoal and Bubblegum fire for Liverpool

    Liverpool's stand-in strikers shrugged off the absence of Fernando Torres to secure a comfortable victory over Aston Villa and make it an unhappy return to Anfield for former Reds manager Gerard Houllier.

    With Torres given the night off to be with his wife Olalla, who had gone into labour with their second child, David Ngog and Ryan Babel ensured he was not unduly missed with first-half goals.

    Maxi Rodriguez added the third in the 55th minute to make it four successive Barclays Premier League victories for Liverpool at Anfield.

    In truth Villa, like previous visitors West Ham, posed little in the way of a threat but there were some encouraging performances from Liverpool all the same.

    Raul Meireles, having been given an extended run in the centre in the absence of the injured Steven Gerrard, is starting to look like an 11million midfielder and was in the midst of most of the hosts good play.

    Ngog and Babel will also have gained plenty of confidence from their performances, although they will have to prove they can do it against better opposition than this if they are to have long-term futures at Anfield.

    Almost forgotten in all the attacking play was Jose Reina's clean sheet, his 100th in 198 league matches breaking by some considerable distance the previous record held by Reds great Ray Clemence - who took 217 games to reach the landmark.

    Houllier, who won five trophies in his six-year spell at Anfield - and four alone in 2001 - to cement his place in the club's history books was welcomed back by a club motif-emblazoned banner on the Kop which read Gerard's Heart Beats.

    It may have skipped a beat in only the third minute when Dirk Kuyt volleyed wide after Ngog's two headers from Meireles' right-wing free-kick were not cleared.

    Set-pieces were a weakness for Villa all night and they were undone by one in the 14th minute.

    Meireles' clipped delivery picked out Martin Skrtel who speared a header back across goal and the diving Ngog could not fail to nod in from barely three yards.

    It was the Frenchman's eighth goal of the campaign - although only his second in the league - and it took him past Gerrard as the club's leading scorer this season.

    Two minutes later Liverpool had doubled their lead with Babel justifying manager Roy Hodgson's faith to select him up front.

    The Dutchman has consistently failed to impress since his 11.5million move from Ajax in 2007 but his goal was an example of the talent - which some would argue he has wasted - at his disposal.

    Playing on the shoulder of Stephen Warnock, Babel allowed Lucas Leiva's lofted ball to drop out to his right and he swivelled to smash a shot across Brad Friedel and inside the far post.

    Sotirios Kyrgiakos could have made it 3-0 in the 27th minute but planted wide his far-post header from Meireles' free-kick while Babel curled a first-time shot just wide of Friedel's left-hand post from the Portugal international's low cross.

    Villa had one chance to get back in the game just after half-time but Gabriel Agbonlahor's close-range shot from Stewart Downing's cross was half-saved by Reina and the ball cleared by Paul Konchesky.

    Moments later a counter-attack of brilliant simplicity finished them off.

    Reina collected and instantly rolled the ball 30 yards down the middle of the pitch to Rodriguez, who offloaded to Ngog out to the left and then perfectly timed his run to sidefoot home the return pass 40 yards further up the pitch.

    Rodriguez looks increasingly at home out on the left and, having scored just one goal in his first five months after joining last January, he now has three in his last seven matches.

    Only former Liverpool goalkeeper Friedel prevented a fourth, parrying away Johnson's shot after he had weaved his way into the area.

    Kyrgiakos' header from Meireles' corner was cleared off the line by Jonathan Hogg as Villa threatened to buckle completely.

    The Kop, as in years gone by, sang the names of Houllier and his assistant Gary McAllister but it was more out of sympathy than anything else.

    Hodgson, who has yet to win over the Anfield faithful, stood unmoved on the touchline safe in the knowledge three points were safe - which Houllier would testify is how all managers are ultimately judged.

    # Hodgson hails ton-up Reina

    Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson paid tribute to goalkeeper Jose Reina as he recorded his 100th clean sheet for the club in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

    Praising Reina, Hodgson told Sky Sports 1: ''He's a very good goalkeeper and he's also a very good character.''

    Reina was eager to pass the credit on to his team-mates. ''Thanks to the boys because it's up to them,'' the Spaniard said.

    The win moved Liverpool to within 10 points of leaders Arsenal, and Hodgson feels his side are starting to hit some form.

    ''I think we shot ourselves in the foot early doors so we're still limping but the limp's getting better every game,'' he said.

    The win was achieved without Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher and Reina added: ''We have a big squad, there are not only three in the team. We have 24 men and we are all here to deliver.''

    Ngog admitted there was extra expectation on his shoulders in the absence of Torres.

    ''I have to take my responsibility when the coach gives me my chance and I did it today,'' he said. ''I hadn't scored for a while so it's good for the team.''

    Houllier admitted conceding two goals in the opening 20 minutes made things very tough for his side.

    He said: ''We conceded a goal and then we conceded another goal which to me was offside, the second goal. I cannot fault the players for the effort, they tried hard.

    ''When you concede a goal after 12, 13 minutes at Anfield it's hard to come back. It's a shame because I thought we could have done something here today.''

    Defeat left Villa still struggling at the wrong end of the table.

    ''We are concerned,'' added Houllier. ''The players and the staff have to take things in our hands.''

    Houllier given a night to forget
    December 6, 2010

    By Richard Jolly, Anfield


    Few clubs do nostalgia better than Liverpool; indeed, few have more reason to be nostalgic. But few have such an instinctive understanding of their history and its importance; few a greater appreciation for past heroes. Those who have served with distinction are guaranteed a fine reception at Anfield and Aston Villa's manager proved no exception. With seven minutes remaining, a familiar rhythmic chorus swept Anfield. "Ger-ard, Ger-ard Hou-lli-er," was a constant refrain a decade ago in a seemingly never-ending season that brought three trophies and Champions League qualification. Now it was laced with sympathy.

    Awful on the night, Villa are two places and two points above the relegation zone and challenged West Ham's claim to be the most anaemic arrivals at Anfield this season. They were so poor that the tributes to Houllier began before the final whistle and could have started much earlier.

    "The fans were good," he said. "I appreciated the fact they chanted my name at the end. They can remember. There was also a banner and I was extremely touched."

    Houllier is a contradiction, at once traditionalist and moderniser, a tough manager with a sentimental streak that is most apparent when he talks about life at Anfield. "I prefer to lose 3-0 to Liverpool because I like Liverpool," he added. The phrasing wasn't the most diplomatic for those of a Villa persuasion. Indeed, minus the injured Steven Gerrard, minus the injured Jamie Carragher, the man involved with the greatest emotional attachment to Liverpool may have been in the visitors' dugout. It was, with David Ngog, Ryan Babel and Maxi Rodriguez getting the goals, a distinctly unhappy return for Houllier nevertheless.

    With rather less fanfare, the watching Xabi Alonso was also back at Anfield. It was a match where he, like Fernando Torres (whose wife went into labour), was not missed. "It was satisfying that so many players stepped up to the plate in the absence of our three most recognised stars," said Roy Hodgson. Indeed, it was Villa who showed an abject anonymity, failing to impose themselves upon a one-sided game that was controlled by Raul Meireles and Lucas Leiva.

    By the time Houllier's reign at Anfield ended, he had an unfortunate but indelible association with underachieving French imports. One of Rafa Benitez's signings, Ngog, had been placed in that category. Now he is escaping it; eight goals already amounts to a useful contribution and the striker excelled throughout.

    Involved in all three goals, he scored the first. Meireles' deep corner was met by Martin Skrtel, who redirected it towards the six-yard box. There a flying Ngog made contact, plunging through the air to head Liverpool into the lead.

    Two minutes later, the goalscorer won back possession and, when Lucas chipped a pass forwards, Babel swivelled to half-volley his shot into the far corner. "Offside," noted Houllier, but the finish was excellent. The Dutchman has spent much of his time at Anfield with the unofficial and unwanted title of 'Liverpool's most frustrating player', but it was a sign of the ability he possesses. "I've never written Ryan Babel off," added Hodgson. "I was delighted in the way he and David Ngog played together."

    Villa awoke from their slumber and only a point-blank block from Jose Reina, thwarting Gabriel Agbonlahor, denied them a route back into the game. Given a warning, Liverpool duly responded. Maxi collected the ball in his own half, advanced, exchanged passes with Ngog and placed his shot past Brad Friedel.

    Thereafter, Jonathan Hogg's goal-line clearance denied Sotirios Kyrgiakos a fourth goal but Villa had long since been condemned to a fourth successive defeat.

    "We need to address a few problems in the team at the moment," said Houllier. "We are not the most confident team and we need to be stronger mentally." Asked about the unfortunate Chris Hughton, he rationalised: "There is a fine line between success and defeat," before adding quickly. "But not today for us."

    As they enjoyed his homecoming, Liverpool can look back fondly at the Houllier years. Villa, with one win from 10 league games, must look forward nervously.

    MAN OF THE MATCH: Raul Meireles - Growing more assured, the Portuguese is now looking much the best of Hodgson's recruits. Besides dovetailing well with Lucas, his passing range was evident in a fine display of playmaking.

    LIVERPOOL VERDICT: Compliments have to come with a caveat. As in their previous match at Anfield, against West Ham, a comprehensive win has to be explained partly with reference to awful opponents. Nevertheless, plenty impressed. Paul Konchesky, culpable for Spurs' winner at White Hart Lane last week, had one of his best games for Liverpool and Maxi continued his fine form of the last two months. Noticeably, he is keeping two summer signings, Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic, out of the team. Reina's clean sheet, meanwhile, was his 100th in the league for Liverpool and came in record time for the club.

    ASTON VILLA VERDICT: Saturday's derby match against West Brom is now assuming huge proportions for Villa if it is not to be a long, bleak winter. While Ashley Young will be available again after suspension and Barry Bannan may be fit, their more muscular midfielders are still absent. It leaves them looking distinctly callow in the centre of the pitch.

    WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE, ER, COLD: Villa lost the match but proved themselves the tougher team in one respect. Six hardy souls - Hogg, Luke Young, Richard Dunne, Ciaran Clark, Stephen Ireland and Stewart Downing - emerged in short-sleeved shirts, without gloves or the latest and silliest addition to the football vocabulary, the snood. Not that such attempts at machismo did them much good.
