Sporting KC acquires defender Daneil Cyrus
By Kurt Austin (sportingkc.com)


Trinidad and Tobago National Team defender Daneil Cyrus will join Sporting Kansas City on loan for the 2011 season, the club announced Saturday.

"Daneil is a young player that we have had our eye on for a while and we're glad to now have him join our club," Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes said. "He brings a new dimension to our defensive depth with his size and athleticism and we think he has a bright future ahead of him."

Cyrus, 20 years old and 6’3”, joined Sporting Kansas City for the 2011 pre-season after being identified by the club’s technical staff at a combine in Trinidad and Tobago in December 2010.  He appeared in each of Sporting Kansas City’s first four pre-season matches in Arizona.

"It's an opportunity that I have been patiently waiting on for some time," Cyrus said. "And I'm really grateful for the opportunity being presented to me by Sporting Kansas City and also FC Santa Rosa. This is a new chapter in my career and I will work as hard as I can to perform at my best and help the club achieve the best results possible.”

He comes to Kansas City from FC Santa Rosa, whom he joined in March 2010 before being loaned to Caledonia AIA of the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League for the last two seasons.

Cyrus has 13 appearances for the Trinidad and Tobago National Team since debuting against Chile in May 2010. He also represented his country in the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Korea and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt, appearing in all three of the team’s group stage matches at each tournament.
Cyrus has been added to the team’s roster and will occupy an international roster spot. In keeping with team policy, terms of the contract will not be disclosed.

The club is owned by Keith Lok Loy. They own some players and loan then out untill they can get into the Pro League. Not a bad business plan, either they get in and have players or they get money by selling the players and get money to develop the club more.

New signee Cyrus ready to make a mark for Sporting KC
By Andrew Wiebe (MLSsoccer.com)


Buried in hoopla surrounding the addition of another Designated Player — Brazilian playmaker Jéferson — to the fold, Sporting Kansas City picked up a lesser-known talent they’ve been circling patiently for more than a year.

Kansas City signed 20-year-old defender Daneil Cyrus on loan from Trinidad and Tobago side FC Santa Rosa last week, ending manager Peter Vermes’ year-and-a-half-long struggle to bring the young international stateside.

Sporting tried to sign Cyrus prior to the 2010 season but couldn’t get the required visa. After impressing the technical staff during a combine on the island in December, the defender then spent most of the preseason with the team before returning home when a deal couldn’t be reached.

Despite those struggles, Cyrus finally made his debut for the club this week in a reserve game before playing the second half against Newcastle United on Wednesday, an experience he said was well worth the wait.

“My time here at the beginning was great,” Cyrus said, “but a misunderstanding happened and I went back home. I am so happy to be here and play my first game with Kansas City against a big club like Newcastle. Everything is going great so far, and I’m so proud to be here and represent Sporting KC.”

Likewise, Vermes is delighted to have him in Kansas City for at the very least the remainder of this season before the club decides whether or not to exercise its option to purchase Cyrus outright.

“He’s young enough and he’s got such an upside that — within our situation now and having the players that we do — he can grow in this environment and not have pressure on him to make an impact at a young age,” Vermes said.

And, make no mistake, Vermes expects Cyrus to continue to improve.

The versatile 6-foot-3 defender may be relatively young, but he has plenty of experience after playing on loan with Trinidad and Tobago Pro League side Caledonia AIA for the last two seasons and making his debut for the T&T national team against Chile in May 2010. He has since racked up 13 appearances with the senior side in addition to representing his country in the Under-17 and Under-20 World Cups at the youth level.

And following a 45-minute performance in which he matched up favorably against some of the Premier League’s most talented and physically imposing strikers in Shola Ameobi and Demba Ba, Cyrus said he is just happy to continue his steady progression in the game.

“Everything is just another experience for me,” he said. “I’m so happy to get the chance to play against Ameobi. He’s a great player. We came out in the second half and kept a clean sheet, and I had him a little bit frustrated so I’m proud of my performance and the team’s.”

Vermes said Cyrus’ integration into the squad should be relatively seamless — apart from getting to know some of the club’s more recent acquisitions — since he spent most the preseason with Kansas City. The immediate plan is to give him plenty of opportunities with the reserves with the chance of appearing with the first team should circumstances (injury, suspension, etc.) dictate it.

In the meantime, Kansas City’s fitness staff will certainly want to put some more bulk on his lanky frame — he is currently listed at 150 pounds — but Cyrus already has the kind of physical gifts that are impossible to teach.

“He’s very fast,” Vermes said. “He rarely gets beat on the floor. If someone takes off, he somehow finds a way to track that guy down. I call it street smarts, but he has lots of field smarts, too. He manages situations really well. I think that is because of his upbringing.”

Predictably, Cyrus also drew on his roots to get an idea of what to expect in MLS. Though he is known as a “skillful” defender back home, he said his teammates on the national team told him he would have to adjust his style of play to adapt to the rough-and-tumble style in his new surroundings.

“They said in MLS as a defender, it is just down to business,” Cyrus said. “Mash up the play and organize. There isn’t time to always be skillful because most forwards tackle like defenders. There is no easy play. I might not be the biggest defender, but I use my head and ability to read the game well. I’m not really afraid of competition. That is why I came to the league.”

6. How impressive where the dual debutants, J´ferson and Daneil Cyrus?

J´ferson, somewhat surprisingly, went the full 90 picking up an assist. Cyrus entered in the 62nd minute after Collin had to be withdrawn for a back injury and had a giveaway that directly led to a Toronto goal.

J´ferson is the real deal, in my opinion. It's only been a little over 100 minutes, but he has a very keen eye for the game and spatial relationships -- he was constantly looking to thread passes between defenders into space. He also draws attention in the middle, creating space out wide.

Given more time to develop a rapport with the front-line, and I think the Brazilian will be a valuable player in this lineup.

Cyrus had a rockier game, but was impressive in his own right. Even though he's only 20, he's incredibly composed on the ball and on the tackle. He's got ample physical gifts and needs a few seasons to develop the mental tools for the job of a central defender -- like knowing not to chest the ball in front of you about 30 yards from the box facing the wrong way when you're the last man back.

Daneil Cyrus to miss rest of 2011 season
By Kurt Austin (sportingkc.com)


Sporting Kansas City central defender Daneil Cyrus will miss the remainder of the 2011 season after suffering a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot during the team’s Reserve League match on Monday. The injury, also commonly referred to as a Jones fracture, will require surgery and Cyrus is expected to be out for four months, the club announced Tuesday.

Cyrus, a Trinidad and Tobago international, was signed by Sporting Kansas City in July and made five appearances in all competition, including two MLS matches and the club’s international friendly against Newcastle United FC.

The injury came in the final moments of Sporting Kansas City's 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids on Monday at the Sporting Club Training Center in Swope Park. Cyrus, who was immediately replaced following the injury, was making his second appearance in the MLS Reserve League, after earning an assist in Sporting Kansas City's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Fire at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.

Cyrus targets late November for training resumption
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFF)


Defender Daneil Cyrus is likely to return to training in late November after suffering a fractured metatarsal in a reserve game for Sporting Kansas in August.

The Tobago-born player underwent surgery and has been ruled out for the rest of the MLS season. But he remains optimistic that he will return to first team football by early next year.

“The recovery is going a bit faster than we thought it would and that’s a good sign but it will take me until the end of November before I can resume any kind of serious training,” Cyrus said on Friday.

Cyrus joined Kansas on loan on July 16th and made his debut against Newcastle United four days later prior to the injury.

“I want to be back as strong as I possibly can. Playing for the first team is my main aim but I know I need to be patient and ensure the recovery takes place. I also want to be fit again in order to have a chance of returning to the national team,” added Cyrus.

He has 13 appearances for T&T and also represented T&T at the 2007 FIFA Under 17 World  Cup and Under 20 World Cup in 2009.

Daneil Cyrus back for 2012
thefrontmen.blogspot.com


21 year old defender Daneil Cyrus will be back for the 2012 season. Sporting Kansas City has told me that as of right now, the Trinidad and Tobago international will be reporting to KC along with the rest of the team for the 2012 pre-season.

This was a very fuzzy area for many of the Sporting Kansas City fans seeing as Sporting's press release from July (http://www.sportingkc.com/news/2011/07/sporting-kc-acquires-defender-daneil-cyrus) did not state whether or not Daneil would go back to FC Santa Rosa or stay on with Sporting. A source close to Sporting Kansas City has told me that he will stay.

This does however also contradict FC Santa Rosa's press release that says that the Trinidadian would be back to FCSR at "the end of 2011". But obviously the two clubs have hammered out something.

Keeping Cyrus is a huge boost for SKC due to their lack of depth at the center back position, which as of right now, consists of 2 players. I have not heard if Daneil has been bought from FCSR or if his loan deal has been extended, but I would think it's the latter.

Also, just to humor the FO of Sporting Kansas City, they had originally said Cyrus was 6'3 (http://www.sportingkc.com/news/2011/07/sporting-kc-acquires-defender-daneil-cyrus) but apparently he has shrunk 2 inches (http://www.sportingkc.com/players/daneil-cyrus).

Daneil Cyrus on the up again.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).


Daneil Cyrus is working round the clock to regain full fitness and force his way into the T&T start team for the CONCACAF Olympic qualifiers later this month in Carson, California.

Cyrus was sidelined by injury since last September and only returned to play a few weeks ago.

“I’m getting there. I’m maybe 85 percent there but I’m feeling better every match and I’m focusing on making sure I can contribute to the team’s cause in the competition,” Cyrus said.

“This training camp is helping me to get back to a good level. We’ve been able to train twice daily here and get some good match practice.

“The experience at Sporting Kansas also benefitted me a lot. It was hard work day in and day out. And it showed me that nothing comes easy.

Everything happens for a reason and although the club waived me, I see it as me getting an opportunity to show my worth with the national team in this tournament.

And at the end of the day, while we have some difficult opponents, all of us are training hard and it all comes down to what happens on the day. Everyone is like a family here… we live together and die together,” Cyrus said.

Cyrus: Gold Cup qualification is best Christmas gift.
By Shaun Fuentes.


National senior defender Daneil Cyrus described this country’s qualification for the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup as the best Christmas present he could have hoped for.
 
The Tobago-born forward turned defender played in all of T&T’s five matches at the Caribbean Cup Finals in Antigua earlier this month after rejoining the team from his first stint in Vietnam. Cyrus missed the semifinal round in Tobago due to club commitments but fitted right back into the set-up on his return in Antigua.
 
“It wasn’t difficult fitting back into the team because I’ve played with all the guys before and I knew the system the coaches were using. We didn’t get off to a great start but we got better with every game and I think that was one of the good things about this team in that we stuck together and improved as the tournament went along,” Cyrus said.

love his attitude but he is a liability at times

He is not a right back.. he is not a left back

He can do a job there but If he is to play I like him as a CB.

Very young still so hopefully he can get out the pro league and polish up because he needs to polish and quickly


Do not overrate him yet at all.. he is very very raw still.. great heart and engine but raw as hell

Cyrus on trial at Genk following Beenhakker’s tip
T&T Guardian Reports

T&T defender Daneil Cyrus is now on trial with Belgium Premier Division club Racing Genk. Cyrus, currently attached to local club W Connection began his trial on Thursday and will be seen by head coach Mario Been.

Cyrus’ national teammate Khaleem Hyland is currently one of the starters and featured players for Genk. The trial followed after recommendation from TTFA Director of Football Leo Beenhakker following Cyrus’ solid showing at the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup

“I got my visa to travel earlier this week and I’m ready for it. It’s an opportunity like this I’ve wanted and I intend to give it my best shot,” Cyrus said.

Racing Genk plays in the Belgian Pro League and they have won 3 Belgian champion titles in 1998–99, in 2001–02 and in 2010–11 as well as 4 Belgian Cups, most recently in 2008–09 and in 2012–13. In 2012 Genk made a profit of 28 million euro after participating in the Champions League group stage, and the Sales of players like Thibaut Courtois and Kevin De Bruyne to Chelsea FC.

Great new for Cyrus. One thing about him he needs to address that I saw in the GC is his apparent casualness in possession at the back when pressed, maybe it's just confidence, don't recall him losing possession but if he did the counter could be deadly. As BM would say play the football  :beermug:

Ha Noi T&T sign up Trinidad and Tobago footballer
vietnamnet.vn


VietNamNet Bridge - Ha Noi T&T have signed a one-and-a-half year contract with Cyrus Daneil, a footballer from Trinidad and Tobago (TT).

He will play as a defender for the V-League side Ha Noi T&T, on loan from W Connection who have won the TT Pro League, Super League and the National Cup.

"We are very glad to recruit this 23-year-old player," said Nguyen Quoc Hoi, chairman of Ha Noi T&T.

Daneil used to play for the Kansas City Club in the Major League Soccer in 2012 and had been summoned to TT's U17 and U20 teams to take part in the U17 world event in 2007 and the U20 event in 2009.
According to Hoi, Daneil's salary is US$6,000 per month.

At present, Ha Noi T&T have three foreign players, the other two being Hughtun Hector who is also from TT and Gonzalo Damian Marronkle from Argentina.

"Domestic players play very well. With the combination of domestic and foreign players, we hope that our club will defend its title during this year's football season," said Hoi.

Cyrus sorry for penalty miss.
T&T Newsday Reports.


LONG AFTER Panama’s Jaime Penedo saved Lester Peltier’s spot kick to win the shootout following Sunday’s 1-1 draw, the Trinidad and Tobago players and technical staff were still struggling to get over the disappointment of elimination from the Gold Cup at the quarter-final stage. While expressing regret, many of the key TT figures at the Met Life stadium in New Jersey also chose to look ahead.

Defender Daneil Cyrus apologised to his teammates and the country for missing a kick that would have taken them into the semi-finals. During the “sudden death” stage of the shootout, Marvin Phillip made a vital save to put TT in the driver’s seat, but Cyrus blasted the next kick over bar, thus bringing Panama back into it.

“I am sorry. I want to apologise to the nation and my team for that miss,” the tall Vietnam-based defender said. “I hope we made the country proud and that they can now support us when the next campaign starts for us. This whole experience was a really good one for us.

It brought us closer as a team and it made us believe more in our ability. It took a lot out of us but we have a lot to take from it. The entire team gave a lot of effort and was dedicated throughout. We would have liked to go all the way but we still can hold ourselves up and move on from here,” Cyrus ended.

Even in defeat, the Soca Warriors earned rave reviews in the international media, and news from the CONCACAF suggested there was a “strong likelihood” TT could move on to the 2016 Copa America Centenario — the South American championship which includes six CONCACAF teams.

Meanwhile, TT skipper Kenwyne Jones, though disappointed, said there was every reason for optimism. “It’s an ironic feeling really, because we lost on penalties in the Caribbean Cup,” said the Cardiff City striker. “And tonight I thought we had this one, but it wasn’t to be. But I think we have a lot to take from this as a team going forward.

“I want to thank the staff and the players for every bit of effort during this tournament. We got closer with every day, every session and every match that passed and this augurs very well for us going into the World Cup qualification.

“My hope and the hope of everyone in the team is that we can get the right preparations for the future. All along, we have been told that we needed to perform, and hopefully we would have done something now to warrant the kind of support that we deserve. If not, then we would be going back to square one and that is what makes the difference with the other countries moving ahead of us,” Jones concluded.

National coach Stephen Hart commended his players for the effort, saying he felt fatigue was a factor in their performance Sunday.

“I think at the end of the day the two days extra rest for Panama showed,” he reflected. “We were completely exhausted. But I have to give credit to my players. They gave me everything. I extracted every drop of juice out of that orange. But penalties are a cruel way to decide a game, but it’s how the game ends.

“I think fatigue was a big factor. We could not get up and down the field as a unit like we did against Mexico, and as the game went further and further forward, we just couldn’t keep possession of the ball. We ran out of legs,” Hart added, saying it was a different proposition kicking penalties in front of thousands, as compared to doing so in the quiet of practice. “Yesterday (Saturday) nobody missed (in practice) and today we had three chances to take it, and we missed.

“A lot of what we have to work on comes with experience and playing matches. A tournament like this would have done a lot for our young players, and hopefully with the right preparation, we can continue to grow and improve as a team,” Hart concluded.

Fourteen members of the squad were scheduled to arrive at Piarco International Airport at 9.00 pm yesterday.

I dont think its a situation where men need to apologise.......a penalty is the hardest and yet easiest thing in football. Nerves will always play a factor...even for some of the greatest. (Baggio).

IMO the order of kicks was the problem no so much the kickers.

This may have been a crucial miss but youknow what - there were other players who had an opportunity to make a difference- supposed all our kickers had made their shots? Then one man does not have to beascapegoat! Say what- I could see the surprised lookouts ma face when his number was called - I want to lay claim that thi layer onthe future would not make this mistake again . I believe that this game , may not be the result we all wanted but may just be the game that would change the approach for each player,coach and hopefully - administrators.
We showed a resiliency, a potential to score and a ho.ding defence like never before . So Mr. Cyrus can't cry over spilled milk-
TTFA and MOS should apologies for the adverse conditions our players and coach have to deal with i additional having to face this level of adversity.

If that nonsense could be off our players minds then think of the what can be achieved when a player does not have to deal with how he go feed he fami.y or make ah living while taking personal time and risk of professional career to represent TnT.

Don't know what went down.. but if a list is made, then during the kicks the man get so cramp he can't kick right then..medical staff called...the rules state, NOBODY else can kick until that man can be revived and kick? It kinda don't make sense..or is it, was somebody else to kick, but Cyus wanted to go instead ? to which I would have said noooo..but then again, if he was the best taker in practice, I mighta have to say yes, go an buss the net man.

It's a team sport, there's no one scapegoat.  Collectively, they just have to know they can do better, and doing better collectively starts with each player handling their own business.
Three men missed penalties but before that happened defenders gave up a goal and many other chances that could have scored, Cummings acted like he had all the time in the world in the box.  Plus the less direct incidents; what if players had made better passes in the attacking third, or made a better run, or made a better tackle.
There's no player who can say they played a perfect game and therefore should not shoulder blame.

The analogy with a hungry child getting food and wanting dessert doh resonate with me.

Chicago Fire acquire defender Daneil Cyrus
Chicago Fire Communications


The Chicago Fire announced Thursday that the club has acquired defender Daneil Cyrus on loan from TT Pro League side W Connection. Per MLS and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. In the most recent Gold Cup, Cyrus started three matches for Trinidad and Tobago, helping his side top Group C with a 2-0-1 record before falling in penalties to Panama in the quarterfinal round. Cyrus will be added to the Fire’s roster upon receipt of his ITC and P1 visa.

“Daneil is a player we’ve been monitoring for a while,” said Chicago Fire Head Coach and Director of Soccer Frank Yallop. “He trained with us earlier in the year and had a number of impressive performances in the recent Gold Cup, so we’re pleased to add him to our side to shore up our defensive line as we head into the second half of the season.”

A Trinidad and Tobago youth international, Cyrus represented the Soca Warriors in the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Korea and the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt. The Plymouth, Trinidad and Tobago native made his senior debut against Chile in May 2010 and has since earned 42 caps and took part in the 2013 and 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cups and the 2010, 2012 and 2014 Caribbean Cups.

Cyrus began his professional career with FC Santa Rosa in 2010 before joining Sporting Kansas City on loan on July 16, 2011. Cyrus made his MLS debut in a 4-2 win over Toronto FC on July 23, 2011. Cyrus made two appearances for Sporting KC before suffering a broken fifth metatarsal in a Reserve League match on Aug. 8, 2011.

On July 5, 2012, Cyrus signed with TT Pro League side W Connection, teaming up with current Fire defender Joevin Jones with the Savonetta Boys. In 2012, W Connection finished second in the CFU Club Championships, qualifying for the 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions League. In 2013, Cyrus helped W Connection to their fifth Pro League title.

Cyrus joined Vietnam V-League side Hanoi TT on loan on May 15, 2014 where he scored one goal in 26 appearances across all competitions, helping Hanoi finish second in the V-League in 2014.

Full Name:         Daneil Nicholas Cyrus
Position:            Defender
Height:               6’3”
Weight:              170 lbs.
Birthday:            Dec. 15, 1990

Great move for him, hopefully being in a truly professional environment will help him in the same way it helped Joevin. Chicago is at the bottom of the table and has former Jamaican international Lovel Palmer starting at RB, and a CM playing CB so there should be many opportunities for him to play.

Cyrus eager to join Chicago Fire.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


National senior defender Daneil Cyrus is awaiting a work permit before jetting off to join American MLS club Chicago Fire on loan.

The former Vietnam-based player is still at home after completing the move to Fire where he will team up with countryman Joevin Jones.

“I’m just waiting on the work permit and then I will be off to Chicago,” Cyrus said.

“I think it’s a great move for me especially right after the Gold Cup. I know I need to play playing regularly and keeping fit. I think the level of the MLS will be good for me. And there’s nothing better at this time than linking up with my brother Joevin at the same club. I think this will help both of us for the period coming up with the national team.”

Cyrus said he has gotten over the pain from the defeat to Panama at the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals.

Cyrus still not in Chicago

The Fire acquired defender Daneil Cyrus on loan just before the close of the transfer window but he has yet to join his new teammates. Cyrus is still in Trinidad & Tobago awaiting clearance on paperwork. "You've got to file for the work permit, you've got to give them your passport, and then you've got wait for it to come back," Yallop explained regarding the delay. "They said fours days, and it's day three (Monday). We're expecting it either today or tomorrow but the problem is he's getting called up by Trinidad as well, so the timing is not perfect. But again, we sign players to hopefully keep them as long as we can but its up to him to play well and do okay here and move forward from there. We expect him in camp after the Trinidad international games."

New Chicago Fire defender Daneil Cyrus ready to make his mark
By Danny Michallik (CSN Chicago)


It’s been quite the whirlwind month for the Fire’s newest signing.

After enjoying a training stint with the club prior to this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup and having been closely monitored by head coach Frank Yallop and the technical staff throughout the tournament, Daneil Cyrus sealed a loan move from TT Pro League side W Connection to the Fire on the last day of the MLS secondary transfer window.

Since then, the Trinidad and Tobago international has spent the better part of the last four weeks in paperwork limbo. Despite acquiring his International Transfer Certificate on Aug. 12, the 24-year-old was forced to remain in his native country to await the receipt of his P1 visa. Upon receiving his passport, his entry into the Fire fold was halted yet again after being summoned by Stephen Hart to face Mexico in an international friendly on Sept 4. in Sandy, Utah, a 3-3 draw in which Cyrus featured 90 minutes.

“JJ [Joevin Jones] and the guys wanted to know if my loan deal was for next year,” said Cyrus, who communicated his frustration with the long-drawn-out process to reporters on Wednesday.

You couldn’t blame his teammates' inquisition.

In the time between the announcement of Cyrus’ purchase on Aug. 6 and Monday – his first official day of training with the club – the Men in Red played seven games, bowing out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and taking just five points from 18 available. Although he’s only had a few days to get his bearings, the Trinidadian leaves no doubt as to which area of the field he would prefer to ply his trade in should his services be required heading into the final stretch of the season.   

“Anywhere the coach would want me to play, I will play, but I prefer playing center back,” Cyrus added, “because of my vision to see the field, but as well as right back. My strength is my speed, so I don’t mind playing right back as well.”

Whether Cyrus impresses enough to guarantee a spot in Yallop’s starting lineup for Friday night's clash with New York Red Bulls (6 p.m. CT; UniMás) remains to be seen. What is certain, however, is that at 6-foot-4, his stature alone will supply the back line with a different, and perhaps more imposing presence.

“It’s nice to add a player,” Yallop said via Monday via teleconference. “It took a while with the permit and all the red tape and paperwork we had to get through and waiting. It’s been kind of frustrating, but he’s here now. He’s a young international player who’s done well for his country, and we’re trying to integrate him into MLS once we get him training with us and get him playing games. I expect him to see the field for sure. I don’t know exactly when. We just have to make sure he’s up to speed on everything, but there’s no time like now, because we need to get a result Friday.”

For now, Cyrus is hoping to take the experience gained from his brief spell with Sporting Kansas City on loan in the summer of 2011, and fine-tune his game to adapt to the physical demands of the league to make for a better adjustment in the Windy City.

“Of course it’s a conversation that I had," Cyrus said when asked if he'd held talks with the coaching staff about extending his stay with the club beyond 2015. "The environment is nice, Chicago is a very lovely place, the team is a very big team in the league over the years,” he said. “I don’t mind making a permanent move.”

Cyrus finally gets his Chicago start.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


National defender Daneil Cyrus made his starting debut for Chicago Fire in a 3-2 loss to New York Red Bulls in American MLS action on Friday night.

Having waited just under a month due to a work permit delay, Cyrus put on a solid showing, playing the entire match and also receiving a 74th minute booking. T&T midfielder Joevin Jones also played the full match.

Fire coach Frank Yallop said he was looking forward to having Cyrus in his team on a regular basis

“Absolutely, we signed them to play them,” Yallop told reporters this week when asked if he sees teammate Ty Harden and Cyrus seeing much game time in the final seven games.

“Ty has been unlucky with his hamstring injury but he looks 100 percent now, and Cyrus is another kid that had a good Gold Cup. He’s been training but not 100 percent with his [international] squad, he just played a game and did OK in the game,” Yallop said. “They’re going to come into it and be featured, whether it’s Friday or moving forward, but we’ll figure out what’s good for them.”

Cyrus said he was keen to play as much as possible before the season ends.

“It was a bit frustrating not being able to play because of the work permit but I think I did okay in my first match.

I’ve been in the MLS before but now it’s a new environment.

I’ve been to Chicago before because I was here with the national team for the Gold Cup and it’s great being here with Joevin (Jones) who I consider to be a brother.

Hopefully we can both stay injury free and help the team finish the season on a high note,” Cyrus said.

Both Jones and Cyrus are expected to be back in the national team for the October 8 friendly away to Panama and then for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Guatemala in Guatemala City on November 13 and United States in Port of Spain on November 17.

Twice in the first half Daneil get back down to the touch line by Giovinco who is much smaller. Both times he give up the corner kick. Second time, Giovinco turn CK into a tying goal.

Some technical deficiencies unfortunately. Bradley round Daneil to score another tying goal in the second half. Daneil somehow lose Altidore on a FK l letting him grab the game-winner. Bad game. Chicago D need some work.

Post by: Tallman on November 16, 2015, 04:57:55 PM
No place like home for Trinidad and Tobago’s Cyrus
FIFA.com


“It’s never easy playing away,” Trinidad and Tobago’s young Daneil Cyrus told FIFA.com, reflecting on their 2-1 win in Guatemala that kick-started 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying for the Soca Warriors. “The fans were so noisy and they got on us from the first minute. We didn’t have much of the ball and we had to defend most of the game.”

The versatile right-back, still just 24, is talking about the complexities of playing away, something all footballers know. But Cyrus might well be talking about his own fledgling career. The speedster, who can be regularly seen barrelling down the wing on the overlap and swinging in crosses, has had his troubles settling anywhere very long. He’s had a tough time finding a place to call home.

He began on his native island Tobago, the smaller of the two, before a move to Sporting Kansas City in USA’s Major League Soccer. But he was on his way out after only a few months, having played just two games. And after arriving back home, he was soon packing his bags again – this time for a more exotic destination than Missouri. The Vietnamese Premier League was calling.

Long road to Hanoi
“It happened really, really fast,” Cyrus chuckled, explaining how he ended up in Hanoi. “The money was good so I couldn’t say no,” he said, reflecting the tough decisions and hard facts of a life in football outside the spotlight. “The players were smaller over there, so I was able to push a few guys around,” he added with a smile. Cyrus measures in at well over six foot and, though lean, he’s quite sturdy.

After a sparkling display in this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, Cyrus returned to MLS and a loan deal with Chicago Fire. But even that move wasn’t smooth. Work permit woes and visa red tape delayed his debut, and he only made six appearances in 2015.

It is with the national team where Cyrus has found a real home, true continuity and community. He is part of a core of young players, like Sheldon Bateau, Aubrey David, Mekeil Williams, Kevin Molino and Khaleem Hyland, that came through the youth ranks together. This young crop is the beating heart of a Trinidad and Tobago side that many are comparing to the greats of years past.

Up next is a date with USA at home. “The US game will be quite interesting,” Cyrus said, admitting to a personal desire to show high-paid MLS stars like Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore what he can do. “They usually have the edge on us, but it’s a team we’d like to beat. It’s a rivalry that goes back a long way.”

The rivalry does indeed have deep roots. Cyrus wasn’t even born when American Paul Caligiuri looped home the so-called shot heard ‘round the world in Port of Spain to send USA to Italy 1990. It was a goal that began a soccer boom in the States that continues today. But on the islands, it broke hearts and a dark cloud descended. “I never heard the end of it as a kid,” Cyrus said. “It was like they stole something from us. All the American guys I know are obsessed with it. It started something big for them. But for us it cast a shadow.”

T&T eventually found their way to a first and only World Cup in Germany in 2006 under Dutchman Leo Beenhakker. “That was an exciting time to be a young player coming up on the islands,” said Cyrus, who started his career as a forward before switching to defence. “I watched those guy, like Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy and I wondered how amazing it would be to play before a huge crowd.

“And now to be playing on the same stage, competing in the same shirt, it’s just amazing,” added Cyrus, preparing for his 40th cap.

Link to the past
A link to that 2006 team remains. Dreadlocked skipper Kenwyne Jones was the youngest player in the team that famously drew with Sweden in Dortmund ten years ago. And he connects those glory days with a present bursting with possibility. “You can’t believe how much he [Jones] brings to the team,” Cyrus said of his captain, who scored the winner in the 2-1 win in Guatemala City.

So when Jones tells Cyrus and his mates that they “have the potential to be even better than that team in ‘06,” it’s more than just hot air. “He makes us believe because he’s the man who knows,” the defender said, aching to realise that boyhood dream of reaching a World Cup.

Training at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Cyrus is feeling right at home. “We’re very comfortable here,” he said, surrounded by the familiar sounds and smells of Port of Spain. Among his mates from the junior ranks and with a veteran hero guiding the way, the old adage may never have been truer: there’s no place like home.

Trinidad and Tobago
No place like home for T&T’s Cyrus

“It’s never easy playing away,” Trinidad and Tobago’s young Daneil Cyrus told FIFA.com, reflecting on their 2-1 win in Guatemala that kick-started 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying for the Soca Warriors. “The fans were so noisy and they got on us from the first minute. We didn’t have much of the ball and we had to defend most of the game.”

The versatile right-back, still just 24, is talking about the complexities of playing away, something all footballers know. But Cyrus might well be talking about his own fledgling career. The speedster, who can be regularly seen barrelling down the wing on the overlap and swinging in crosses, has had his troubles settling anywhere very long. He’s had a tough time finding a place to call home.

He began on his native island Tobago, the smaller of the two, before a move to Sporting Kansas City in USA’s Major League Soccer. But he was on his way out after only a few months, having played just two games. And after arriving back home, he was soon packing his bags again – this time for a more exotic destination than Missouri. The Vietnamese Premier League was calling.

Long road to Hanoi
“It happened really, really fast,” Cyrus chuckled, explaining how he ended up in Hanoi. “The money was good so I couldn’t say no,” he said, reflecting the tough decisions and hard facts of a life in football outside the spotlight. “The players were smaller over there, so I was able to push a few guys around,” he added with a smile. Cyrus measures in at well over six foot and, though lean, he’s quite sturdy.

After a sparkling display in this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, Cyrus returned to MLS and a loan deal with Chicago Fire. But even that move wasn’t smooth. Work permit woes and visa red tape delayed his debut, and he only made six appearances in 2015.

It is with the national team where Cyrus has found a real home, true continuity and community. He is part of a core of young players, like Sheldon Bateau, Aubrey David, Mekeil Williams, Kevin Molino and Khaleem Hyland, that came through the youth ranks together. This young crop is the beating heart of a Trinidad and Tobago side that many are comparing to the greats of years past.

Up next is a date with USA at home. “The US game will be quite interesting,” Cyrus said, admitting to a personal desire to show high-paid MLS stars like Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore what he can do. “They usually have the edge on us, but it’s a team we’d like to beat. It’s a rivalry that goes back a long way.”

The rivalry does indeed have deep roots. Cyrus wasn’t even born when American Paul Caligiuri looped home the so-called shot heard ‘round the world in Port of Spain to send USA to Italy 1990. It was a goal that began a soccer boom in the States that continues today. But on the islands, it broke hearts and a dark cloud descended. “I never heard the end of it as a kid,” Cyrus said. “It was like they stole something from us. All the American guys I know are obsessed with it. It started something big for them. But for us it cast a shadow.”

T&T eventually found their way to a first and only World Cup in Germany in 2006 under Dutchman Leo Beenhakker. “That was an exciting time to be a young player coming up on the islands,” said Cyrus, who started his career as a forward before switching to defence. “I watched those guy, like Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy and I wondered how amazing it would be to play before a huge crowd.

“And now to be playing on the same stage, competing in the same shirt, it’s just amazing,” added Cyrus, preparing for his 40th cap.

Link to the past
A link to that 2006 team remains. Dreadlocked skipper Kenwyne Jones was the youngest player in the team that famously drew with Sweden in Dortmund ten years ago. And he connects those glory days with a present bursting with possibility. “You can’t believe how much he [Jones] brings to the team,” Cyrus said of his captain, who scored the winner in the 2-1 win in Guatemala City.

So when Jones tells Cyrus and his mates that they “have the potential to be even better than that team in ‘06,” it’s more than just hot air. “He makes us believe because he’s the man who knows,” the defender said, aching to realise that boyhood dream of reaching a World Cup.

Chicago Fire Soccer Club Exercises Options on Four Players
Chicagofire.com


CHICAGO (Nov. 30, 2015) – The Chicago Fire Soccer Club announced today a series of roster decisions. The Club has exercised options on midfielders Kingsley Bryce, Matt Polster and Harry Shipp, as well as defender Patrick Doody.

The Fire also declined options on nine players, including: Adailton, Jon Busch, Razvan Cocis, Greg Cochrane, Jason Johnson, Alec Kann, Jeff Larentowicz, Lovel Palmer and Chris Ritter. The loan deal for Daneil Cyrus has expired.

“History has shown that the key to having a successful team in MLS requires a solid nucleus of players who have been together for some time,” said Fire general manager Nelson Rodriguez. “Returning Harry, Matt, Kingsley and Patrick and combining them with the players we already have under contract begins to move us in that direction. The players adversely affected are talented individuals as well, who we thank for their contributions to our Club and wish well in their careers going forward.”

The Fire retained the services of their entire rookie class -- Bryce, Doody, Fernandez and Polster -- for the first time since 2010.

Nine players were already under guaranteed contracts for 2016, including: David Accam, Collin Fernandez, Eric Gehrig, Gilberto, Kennedy Igboananike, Sean Johnson, Joevin Jones, Patrick Nyarko and Michael Stephens.

The following players are currently out of contract: Ty Harden, Mike Magee and Matthew Watson.

Busch, Larentowicz, Magee and Harden will be eligible for Free Agency. Palmer and Watson are eligible to participate in MLS’ Re-Entry process.

Cyrus needs a reality check. Getting a bit swell headed. This living on the block with he boys n drinking when he in Plymouth should be a thing of the past. Should want to set a positive example for the youths down here. I doubt he would but I hope he reads this. Its time to make the next step in ur career brother. Had a bad last two games for the National team but if he wise up and apply himself then could be a world beater. Still backing him to come good as a man from yard but he getting too big for he boots

For the record cyrus is not a bad player, he's just not a good defender. I am of the opinion that Cyrus is played out if position. This player should be used as a defensive midfielder or a right winger because he puts more crosses in the box than jovin, cato and Levi Garcia combined.

Sporting Kansas City sign Cyrus as a Defender then released him
Chicago Fire signed Cyrus as a Defender then released him

Cyrus plays as a defender for W Connection. Based on the above results and WC Qualifying you maybe correct that he is not a good defender.

Ah know is your opinion but a midfielder or winger, REALLY?

lets not get it twisted daniel cyrus is a skillfull player but he does not care about his craft. I've watch him from the under 23 level to club and senior team and he's filled with potential. It's my opinion that this player has much to offer our national team but not as a defender.

There could be many arguments made that hyland or kavan george would be mauled as defenders and that might be true, but they are very good midfielders non the less.

defenders are one in a million and it's the hardest position on the pitch to master.  Cyrus will suffer as long as he pursue this position, he's a terrible defender and to add insult he makes very poor decisions and cannot concentrate for 30 minutes let alone 90 plus, and defenders in order to be world class must have the ability to consentrate on and off the field even in their sleep.

As a Tobagonian I more than most want Cyrus to succeed but you hit the nail on the head, concentration and decision making thus why I can not see him in the midfield.

At 25 plus, it will be hard for him to be cast as other than a defender. Sadly, football tends to pigeon hole some players and unless they work VERY hard they are unable to change peoples perception of their position.

Is he pursuing the position or coaches and technical directors see it as his best position for some of the reasons you stated?

After seeing Cyrus play in GC a couple yrs ago, many of us on the forum liked him a lot.... but voice concerns about certain part of his play. everyone was optimistic that he would improve. We liked his coolness, his height and his attacking ability. But we have seen no improvement on the international stage. He bounced around the MLS, and was let go. If you can't cut it in the so-called US "bush league " then you come back home. And it appears that any of the pro clubs will take him. He can play in our league because at this time, he good enough. Right now it too late to experiment with Cyrus in any other position in this Hex. If the TTFA get a couple friendlies and have him play in mid field, and he look good ... that may alright. But we need a more consistent right back. I say Cato because he has played at that position for his club.

are you for real with this cockamamie rubbish about player sabotage? I joked with the idea but it seem like you're crazy serious about it.

on the real though mate, cyrus has been under performing long before DJW came in the picture. In the last gold cup I was there to witness the nifty Panamanian left wing who ate him up every time they met, for that matter it was their favorite erea of attack because they found a weak spot and was exploiting it.

the problem is trinidadian ballers have very inflated egos especially when they are shown genuine attention then they believe to th mselves that they don't need to try any harder, just look at the players who fell prey to that mind set.

 Jovin jones was once venerated for his skill set and was hailed as the best baller in trini a few years ago same with attulla guerra when he was referred to as the trini Ronaldinho after that the lad stopped trying and fell off terribly, same with kenwin when he was herald as the next drogba, a year after that kenwin was walking around the pitch like he won everything that there was to be won and that is the Dian fall of most trini athletes.

The Cyrus situation raises a lot of questions..

Pull stones, I with you on that.. I don't believe the players decided collectively to sabotage the performance of the team. But do I believe one player under the guidance of DJW might be involved with doing so? Absolutely.

If you look at the past 3 games, Cyrus was responsible for lapsing on at least 4 of the goals scored. I wondered why he continued to get picked after Martinique. Then I thought the same thing after the CR game. If you check the posts from the other games, many of us wondered why Cyrus was still being picked. Some of us even poinyed it out by suggesting that Hart favored Cyrus much more than the others.. hmm.

“I wasn’t really at my best for the last two [World Cup qualifying] games and everybody knows that,” said Cyrus. “I know that too. Sometimes a player might be going through a good patch and sometimes a player is going through a bad patch.

“For the Guatemala match [on 2 September 2016], I thought I had an okay game but for the last two games I really wasn’t at my best. I am not hiding. I just had two bad games.”

Cyrus plays central defence for Connection but was a regular at right back under former National Senior Team coach Stephen Hart. And, in his two outings under Saintfiet, he appeared in central midfield.

“I can play anywhere on the field, once I get time to adjust to the position,” he said. “A footballer should be able to play anywhere on the field. In the last game [against Nicaragua], I even got a chance one on one [with the opposing goalkeeper] and I missed…

“I do prefer to play centre back, honestly. But any position they let me play, I play it to the best of my ability.”

I remember when Cyrus was one of our more reliable players and was getting props on here on the regular, it seems like since the missed penalty vs Panama it's just been downhill in terms of performance.
Back to the topic, JC I agree we always find ways to detract us from our goals, it's always some type of drama along the way. I feel it for Hart because it looks like he struggles to get the full support of the board, not a conducive environment to be productive. I hope we can get rid of all the negative influences surrounding the team and move forward with the players and staff who's fully committed to the task at hand. If everyone's not on the same page both on and off the field we may end up dead last in the HEX and even miss out on the GC.

as the lady say, drop the boy if u want to drop the boy, but 'rumcork' persona..all the service he give, he don't deserve no waste down, even if is the case

I get the sense is more a case of lasana's headline "rum cork" that was the waste down factor and not anything de coach say.

I'm hoping that in reflection, and if he had a do over, Lasana would choose much less sensational terminology to describe the players actions

Cyrus’ club search in on!
TTFA Media.


Campbell says T&T defender will only get better with full time training

Daniel Cyrus will be hoping to secure a new club deal in the not too distant future as he aims to maintain the form which saw him start both of this country’s recent 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Mexico.

Cyrus put in a solid shift in both affairs but is club-less at the moment even though there is word that a couple clubs in American Major League Soccer (MLS) and Asia are keeping firm eyes on him.

The 26-year-old Cyrus played four games for MLS club Chicago Fire while on loan from W Connection in 2015. The Plymouth-born player has 66 appearances for T&T after making his international debut under Russell Latapy in a friendly against World Cup bound Chile in 2010. He played for T&T at both the 2007 FIFA Under 17 World Cup and the 200 FIFA Under 20 World Cup.

Former England defender Sol Campbell, an assistant coach in the T&T Senior Team, has worked with Cyrus and the other national team defenders extensively in the residential training camp leading up to the Panama and Mexico matches. And his observations were positive.

Cyrus has played in eight of T&T’s 2018 World Cup qualifying matches.

“Since I’ve been with the Trinidad Tobago team Daneil Cyrus has showed great attitude and determination and willingness to learn and over the two games Panama and Mexico has played extremely well considering he hasn’t had full time training (with a club),” Campbell told TTFA Media .

The former Portsmouth man said it was important that the defender finds himself a club as soon as possible.

“So once that has been resolved (his club situation) with full time, proper hard  training and playing in a great team, good performances will continuing come,” Campbell added.

Cyrus plays first match for Honduran club.
TTFA Media.


Trinidad and Tobago Senior team defender Daneil Cyrus made his first appearance for Honduran La Liga club Juticalpa on Saturday, running out for the full ninety minutes in a preseason encounter against fellow League side UPNFM. T&T goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams also saw action, entering the match at the start of the second half as Juticalpa finished the match without conceding.

Cyrus signed a one-year deal last month with the option to extend and appears to be settling in at the club, although his spanish speaking skills may not yet be as good as Williams who held his own fairly well during an interview on camera with a Honduran reporter last week.

“I am not as good in Spanish as Jan as yet but so far things have been very good at the club,” Cyrus told TTFA Media

“We had a game on Saturday in which I played the full ninety minutes and Jan came on for the second half. The players and the staff have embraced us and made us feel very comfortable. And the fans have been good so far.

“The league starts at month end but the preseason preparations have been intense and there is a lot happening. Before coming here, I heard a lot of good things from Jerrel Britto and  being here now,I have seen it for myself that the clubs are very organised and at our club in particular the level is good. I think it’s definitely a step up for me and I am looking forward to a good, solid season,” Cyrus added.

T&T’s next World Cup is at home to Honduras on September 1st with both teams seeking full points to maintain their qualifying chances. T&T needs to capture the win before moving on to Panama City to face Panama four days later.

“At the moment I think everyone understands the importance of that game against Honduras. Both myself and Jan can sense here also that they (the Hondurans) know how big the match it is and of course they know us as national players from Trinidad Tobago as we played here last year. But for us, the focus while we are here,  is Juticalpa and doing well in the league. So far the people here have welcomed us and we are part of them.

“But the focus for us is also the Honduras game which is in the back of our minds at the moment. We are working hard on our fitness levels and always trying to better our game to take to the national team when we are called for duty. We are always working towards being at our best and it’s going to be no different for those two games in September,” Cyrus added.

Cyrus at age 26, has made 68 appearances for T&T and is on his fourth overseas deal, having previously played for Chicago Fire and Sporting Kansas in the MLS as well as Hanoi T&T in Vietnam in a professional career that dates back to 2010 with him having played for FC Santa Rosa, Joe Public, Caledonia AIA and W Connection.

“At the moment I think my game is at a decent level but there’s always work to be done. I think the last few weeks with the national team has been good for me, working under the head coach (Dennis Lawrence) and taking things on board in every session. We were a bit unlucky with the two results but we have a lot of reasons to believe we can turn things around in the next two games,” Cyrus added.

Look Loy: Cyrus’ contract was not a Pro League one.
By Joel Bailey (Newsday).


DANEIL CYRUS’ deal with FC Santa Rosa, from March 1, 2010 to December 31, 2012, was strictly a club contract and not a Pro League one, according to the club’s owner and president Keith Look Loy.

Cyrus, a member of the national football team, joined Santa Rosa after a brief stint as a youth team player with the now-defunct Joe Public.

The central defender played with the T&T teams in the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in South Korea and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.

A copy of Cyrus’ contract was obtained by Newsday, with stipulations under the rules of the club, the TT Football Federation (now TT Football Association) and the Pro League.

FC Santa Rosa have never been involved in the Pro League, at any level, during their 25 years of existence.

Look Loy, in an interview on Tuesday, pointed out, “That is not a Pro League contract, that is a Santa Rosa contract. If you look at the first page, the Pro League has a standard contract.”

Look Loy, who is currently the president of the TT Super League, continued, “Any club is free to have a contract with anybody.

There (are) no guidelines.

They will agree what the content of the contract is.”

Asked if the Pro League mentions were typographical errors, Look Loy responded, “The player was loaned to Caledonia (AIA from March 2010 until July 2011) and therefore would have been playing under the rules of the Pro League.”

In 2010, FC Santa Rosa men’s team were in their infancy, and were competing in the Eastern Football Association (EFA) second division.

Look Loy said after the loan agreement with Caledonia AIA ended, Cyrus was loaned to Sporting Kansas City in the American MLS (Major League Soccer).

Sporting Kansas City paid a nominal fee of US$5,000 for Cyrus.

“That didn’t work out,” said Look Loy. “When he came back (in March 2012), W Connection approached Santa Rosa. He was under contract (with Santa Rosa) but I told them they could have him for free. I told them they could take him and that was the end of that.”

Some ppl keep being mystified by Cyrus and his selection, but if you see the player there ought to be no mystery about him being selected to the NT.

I am one of those people, so please demystify his continued selection.

In terms of his past continued selection, the things I suspect that may have recommended Cyrus taking the field are his experience, his confidence (leadership to a degree), his adaptability and his ambition to advance the ball rather than just to deny chances.

Considering  the future, his continued selection is a function of position by position competition, versatility in alternatives and whether there is mounted trust in less experienced players (in the role of CB) rather than in Cyrus per se making an overarching compelling case for selection.

Certainly, as has David Luiz, he's been at the center of some unfortunate muck-ups on the field, but on a comprehensive level there's little denying that he merited NT selection relative to his peers. And apparently that's  been the case for some time. Gilbert Bateau told me at a young age Cyrus was already demonstrating his versatility and could play anywhere on the field.

Once he's kept finding a decent club abroad, it's been hard to ignore him. If he gets stuck in T&T that might be a different outcome. At club level, I think of him as a player who tries to fit in where he can get in and keep it moving, but still I would have thought that he would have looked to consolidate his career in Saudi Arabia.

The issues that have influenced perception of Cyrus are notable errors (awareness and decision-making) and positioning. His reaction time/speed may be on the verge of being a liability. Other than that, he puts in a reasonably good but not remarkable shift.

Although it is left to be seen whether he can convince other coaches that he adds value in another playing position, that could be possible for a coach coming to TT from outside but unlikely to be the route taken by a coach inside the country where Cyrus playing at CB would be the preference of many and is viewed as settled. His passing isn't elaborate but he has moments of accuracy over long range.

An authoritative source describes him as "active in defensive actions, takes a lot of challenges and makes [them] with high effectiveness." Same source: "doesn't make a lot of passes per game".

That source also says ... "reads the game well" ... I don't doubt that ... but reacting to the reading?

Subjectively, I think we should have been getting more out of his headers on both ends of the park (say if you compare him to Yohance who heads the ball true).

Mixed bag.

A mixed bag has been good enough to do it.

There is talk about talks. Maybe Mohun Bagan will be moving to the Indian Super League.

Quote
... the meeting between the national and continental committee is to solve the longstanding muddle over the two leagues in India – Indian Super League (ISL) and I-League. The Indian FA have prepared a roadmap and will submit the same in the Asian territory. They have invited all concerned parties to Kuala Lampur from the ISL and I-League to resolve this conundrum.

The AIFF leadership group including the president Praful Patel and general secretary Kushal Patel has held meetings with AFC General Secretary Dato Windsor John when he visited India.

When the AFC officials met the AIFF officials in Malaysia last week, all grievances from all clubs were taken into account and the roadmap was completely formulated. The AIFF had early communicated its decision to make the ISL the defacto top league in India by handling the AFC Champions League preliminary round spot, which the I-League clubs had enjoyed, from the 2019/20 season.

Mohun Bagan releases Daneil Cyrus.
T&T Guardian Reports.


National defender Daneil Cyrus, 29, has been released by Mohun Bagan after helping the club to the I-League crown.

Last month, I-League winners Mohun Bagan merged with three-time Indian Super League (ISL) champions ATK, which has ensured their participation in the Indian Super League (ISL) from the 2020-21 season.

In the merged entity, ATK, the original ISL franchise owned by Sanjiv Goenka’s RPSG Group, would have 80 per cent stake while the remaining 20 per cent would be with Mohun Bagan, who bagged the I-League title with four rounds to spare.

However, most of Mohun Bagan's players inclusive of Cyrus contracts ended on May 31, with only six of them having a year or multiple years left.

Cyrus mulls quitting T&T team over border exemption
By Narissa Fraser (T&T Newsday)


SIX T&T footballers – who were previously stuck in India and granted provisional exemptions – are now stranded in Barbados. They say since arriving, they have received no official communication from the National Security Ministry.

The players – Daneil Cyrus, Taryk Sampson, Marcus Joseph, Andre Ettienne, Marvin Phillip and Nathaniel Garcia – play in the Hero-I-League in India. The league eventually cancelled its remaining matches in April owing to the covid19 pandemic and they – along with three other players – were stranded.

After writing to the National Security Ministry for weeks, they were granted provisional exemptions to return home. This means: they must provide their confirmed route home, commitment to be quarantined and choice of quarantine – state or supervised – before final exemptions are granted.

The group of six managed to get a flight to get them to Barbados and had updated the ministry about this. They arrived last Tuesday.

Recently, five T&T students who were also stuck in India were repatriated to T&T and had used Barbados as their final stop point before home.

Cyrus told Newsday the group is frustrated, especially since accommodation is costing $US 400 a night.

“It have a flight with cricket (Caribbean Premier League) players from Barbados (to T&T) on Monday (at 6 pm) and these people not allowing us to come home.

“It have no excuse now ‘bout we too far. I’m tired now, we are just here and don’t know what going on.”

He added, “I e-mailed them about our situation and the response we got was to send everyone’s bio page on our passport and that’s it – nothing else. I ready to see my family.”

He said it is unfair that national footballers “who have done so much for this country” are being treated like this.

“I feel after this, I not going to play for the country again after this... It’s almost four months we fighting this to get closer to home. Now we’re in Barbados and nobody helping we.”

All six players were tested for covid19 on Saturday and received negative results on Sunday.

The players still in India include Radanfah Abu Bakr, Robert Primus and Willis Plaza.

Questions related to covid19 and exemptions were posed to National Security Minister Stuart Young at a press conference on Sunday morning, but he made it clear he was not there to discuss such matters.

Cyrus thanks Hadad: 'He lived up to his word'
By Jelani Beckles (T&T Newsday).


T&T men’s senior footballer Daneil Cyrus said he respects chairman of the normalisation committee Robert Hadad for sticking to his word and paying national footballers their salaries.

Among those who were liaising with the normalisation committee concerning salaries was the Coaches Steering Committee which includes Jefferson George, Wayne Sheppard, Angus Eve, Clayton Morris and Richard Hood. A member of that committee told Newsday at 5.30 pm on Tuesday that he had been paid.

Approximately 40 coaches and technical staff members of national senior and junior teams were owed money for various periods.

The coaches that had three-month contracts were paid in full, but coaches and staff with longer contracts received 50 per cent of their salaries. All the players are expected to get paid in full.

Cyrus, who could not recall the length of time he was not paid, said the footballers are breadwinners for their families and he was grateful. “To be honest the main focus for the players is to be fathers where they have to take care of their families.”

The defender said not being paid can affect team performance.

“It was kind of hampering with our performance in a way. I don’t want to make excuses where we were losing games and we were not doing good.”

Cyrus is delighted for the local players especially. “At the end of the day I was playing outside, but what about the other guys who were playing home where the (TT Pro League and TT Super) League were not playing for a while where plenty players did not get a salary for a long time and they were looking out for this money…Hadad came in and as he came in he started to show progress.”

Over the last two years, Cyrus has had stints with Mohun Bagan AC in India and Erbil SC in Iraq.

The payment of salaries is a Christmas gift, according to Cyrus. “I am happy to see some of the players receive this money because it is close to Christmas where you have a family and everything (to take care of).”

Cyrus, 30, has 90 caps for T&T after making his debut in 2010.

Cyrus was satisfied that Hadad stayed true to his word. “I spoke to Hadad and I asked him if I could hold him to his word and he said, ‘Yes.’ Most of us had a conversation and he lived up to his word, so I respect him full 100 (per cent) for this.”

This is the first time national players and coaches will be paid since the normalisation committee was formed by FIFA in March to run local football. The normalisation committee inherited a debt of over $50 million and the committee has been trying to reduce that debt and pay outstanding salaries.

In November, FIFA lifted a two-month suspension on the TTFA and T&T are now free to compete in FIFA-sanctioned tournaments such as World Cup qualifiers that begin in March. The TTFA, formerly led by William Wallace, was involved in an eight-month court battle with FIFA over its decision to appoint the normalisation committee and remove the TTFA executive.

With the suspension being lifted and players and coaches being paid, Cyrus said local football is on the right path.

“The direction is good, everything going good so far,” he said.

Defender Radanfah Abu Bakr will not benefit from the payment of salaries as he last played for T&T in 2017.

He said if the situation continued it could have had a negative impact on players.

“The reality is that is your job as well. That is how you take care of your family…as much as you try to cross the white line and forget about those things it is inevitable when it is dragging on and on. It must take a toll on you mentally as well. For some guys it does inhibit you a bit when you are playing and when you training and maybe it does affect your commitment to the team.”

So How much funding did FIFA see it fit to give the normalization committee to make these payments? How much was disbursed? How much is left ? What are the outstanding debts ? What is the status of present long term contracts? How are they to be honoured? Where is funding for up coming tournaments and for how many teams ? Is there a women’s team payment and any up coming programs/camps ? What about creditors and current court cases/debts ?

Nice to know ppl getting paid, but is it all secrets? Till next time ? Do we have another sponsor other than FIFA? Should the ppl of TT care where the money comes from and going ? Is taxes withheld or all money in and out of TT tax exempt?


Why I does have to declare whatever funds over 10 k I NOT travelling with on a form ? If I had, could I say , I got it from FIFA?

Oh! The way Alibey wrote that I thought he meant after Saudi Arabia and before Mohun. I missed it either way.  :)

Some ppl keep being mystified by Cyrus and his selection, but if you see the player there ought to be no mystery about him being selected to the NT.

I am one of those people, so please demystify his continued selection.
I was also harsh on Cyrus when emotions we high and he keep muckin' up, but I remember 'Seeker and a couple other's comments when I re-watch this match recently - that coaches keep picking him for a reason.

He remind me of Dennis Lawrence so much - a huge f**k up (in my opinion) and inconsistent character until Beenhaker straighten him out in his twilight years. Maybe lightning will strike twice and the right coach will put him in the right place.
But to me his control and speed with the ball here (at least in this over 5 yr old video)  *for a tall fella* isn't too bad. 
Of course everything in context with what other options we have if any.

Cyrus on trial at Genk following Beenhakker’s tip
T&T Guardian Reports

T&T defender Daneil Cyrus is now on trial with Belgium Premier Division club Racing Genk. Cyrus, currently attached to local club W Connection began his trial on Thursday and will be seen by head coach Mario Been.

Cyrus’ national teammate Khaleem Hyland is currently one of the starters and featured players for Genk. The trial followed after recommendation from TTFA Director of Football Leo Beenhakker following Cyrus’ solid showing at the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup

“I got my visa to travel earlier this week and I’m ready for it. It’s an opportunity like this I’ve wanted and I intend to give it my best shot,” Cyrus said.

Racing Genk plays in the Belgian Pro League and they have won 3 Belgian champion titles in 1998–99, in 2001–02 and in 2010–11 as well as 4 Belgian Cups, most recently in 2008–09 and in 2012–13. In 2012 Genk made a profit of 28 million euro after participating in the Champions League group stage, and the Sales of players like Thibaut Courtois and Kevin De Bruyne to Chelsea FC.
