“Everyone thinks it was a money-related issue, but it wasn’t” – Naomi Osaka

Published

on

World number one Naomi Osaka has cleared the air saying she was not willing to “sacrifice” her happiness following her surprise split from coach Sascha Bajin 16 days after winning her second grand slam – the Australian Open, after she won her first at the 2018 US Open.




“Everyone thinks it was a money-related issue, but it wasn’t,” said Osaka.

“I wouldn’t put success over my happiness. I’m not going to sacrifice that just to keep a person around.

“That’s one of the most hurtful things I’ve ever heard.”

The 21 year old Japanese, had worked with Bajin for just over a year when she announced the split on Twitter.

Bajin, the 2018 WTA coach of the year, is a former hitting partner of Grand Slam champions Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki.

Under him, Osaka rose from world number 72 at the start of 2018 to the summit of the rankings little over a year later.

Though no particular reason was given for the split as of now, but Osaka says issues with the German had been “brewing” at January’s Australian Open.

“I think some people could see that, if they saw how we interacted,” she told reporters at the WTA event in Dubai.

“I’m not going to say anything bad about him because, of course, I’m really grateful for all the things he’s done.

“During the Australian Open, I was just trying to tell myself to get through it. I’m not sure, but I think you guys noticed.”

She expressed optimism over having a new coach in place before March 4, when the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells takes off.

“[The most important thing for me is] just to have a positive mindset,” Osaka added. “I don’t want someone that’s in the box saying negative stuff. That would be the worst.

“[I want] someone that’s kind of direct, not afraid to say things to my face. I’d rather someone say it directly to me than go around my back. That’s one of the biggest things.”

“It is clear that he has to leave Manchester United,”

“It would be a good thing for both parties. It is now important that Romelu finds the right club.”

Martinez made this submission during an interview with newsmen as the 26-year-old endured a difficult second season at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move away.

The likes of Inter Milan have been reportedly showing an interest in Belgium’s all-time record goalscorer, who has netted 42 in 96 games since joining United from Everton in 2017.

However, he failed to find the back of the net in his last eight appearances of the season and was not an automatic starter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Now Lukaku’s international boss, who was also his manager at Goodison Park, feels everyone may benefit if the player secures a summer transfer.
