Van Gerwen angry after painful defeat in Sheffield: ‘I am selling myself short’ | NOW

Published

Michael van Gerwen cannot hide his anger after his defeat in the final of the Premier League tournament in Sheffield. The Dutchman gave up a 4-2 lead in legs against Gerwyn Price on Thursday and lost 6-5 to the Welshman.

“It was hard work all the time,” Van Gerwen said to viaplay† “You know what it is, I already have to avoid 5-2. Then you are doing yourself so short. This is completely unnecessary. I can be angry with myself, but it happens. It is no different.”

With a 4-2 lead, 33-year-old Van Gerwen had the perfect opportunity to bring the margin to three, but he missed the double-12 three times. Then Price tied the score and the single world champion was the best in the eleventh and deciding leg.

“The triple-20 didn’t run at all tonight, it drove me crazy,” said Van Gerwen. “I have to take this one on my chin. I’m always at peace with being outclassed. But this hurts so much. I know I’m the man in shape and then you have to live up to it.”

‘If they play against me, they are 0-1 behind’

The final was not Van Gerwen’s only difficult performance in Sheffield. In the semifinals, he still trailed 1-4 against Michael Smith. He managed to turn that around in a 6-5 win. In the previous round, he had easily defeated reigning world champion Peter Wright (6-1).

“When they play against me, they are 0-1 behind. They always want to beat me, that gives them a boost. But they don’t always succeed. They have a lot of respect for me. I have to exploit that and that I didn’t do it in the final.”

Despite his lost final, Van Gerwen secured the play-offs of the Premier League. The best four darters after sixteen rounds will compete for the title in the prestigious darts competition in Berlin on June 13.

The Manchester United attacker posed on Instagram with his 11-year-old son Cristiano Jr. before diving into their cryosauna together, a chamber with extremely low temperatures to aid muscle recovery. Cristian Jr. has been doing sit-ups with his dad since he was four, and it’s paying off: his six-pack is on track to match his dad’s.

The Portuguese spoke about the arrival of Erik ten Hag last week. The Dutch trainer will be at the helm of Manchester United from this week. Ronaldo hopes to be able to participate again under Ten Hag for the big prizes.

“What I know about him is that he has done a fantastic job at Ajax and that he is an experienced coach,” Ronaldo said on the club’s website. “We have to give him time and things have to change the way he wants. I hope we will have success, because when you have success, the whole city benefits.”

Team Van der Poel does not want refugees to run any further | NOW

Published

on

134 km to go – Van der Poel’s Alpecin-Fenix ​​is ​​supported by Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert. Not so strange, because the Belgian formation also has one of the favorites for the stage victory on board, the Eritrean Girmay.

139 km to go – An impasse between the escapees and the peloton. The difference has been hovering around six minutes for some time now.

Another 166 km – The escapees’ lead has already increased to almost six minutes and that is the signal for Alpecin-Fenix ​​to intervene. Mathieu van der Poel’s team is at the head of the pack.

170 km to go – The lead of the three men in the lead is getting bigger and bigger. They already have a margin of 4.5 minutes on the peloton, which has still not started.

Still 177 km – The pace in the peloton then stops, so that the lead of the three refugees increases quickly. Naesen, Bais and De Marchi drive with a margin of two minutes on the long, flat roads along the Adriatic coast.

185 km to go – Lawrence Naesen (AG2R Citroën), Mattia Bais (Drone Hopper) and Alessendro de Marchi (Israel – Premier Tech) are doing everything they can to stay away, but calm has not yet returned to the peloton. The Belgian and the Italians have a lead of barely twenty seconds.

191 km to go – Three riders were in it to make a hole: the Belgian Naesen gets the Italians De Marchi and Bais with him. The difference is still small.

Start! The stage has started and a number of riders immediately try to jump away from the peloton.

So first there is a long flat run-up. The first climb only appears after 100 kilometers of course.

The riders are on their bikes for the neutralized part of the stage. Does it rain immediately after the official go-ahead?
