Mbappé and its renewal: “It is not the time to talk about this”

first_imgKylian Mbappé, 21, spoke in mixed zone about the renewal of his contract with the PSG after the victory against Saint Éttiene in the League Cup. The forward answered the question about whether he would extend his contract with the PSG: “This is not the time to talk about this, this is the time to play football, there are many deadlines, I just want to focus on the season”. The French again asked if his will was to extend his contract that ends in June 2022: “My will is simply to play football, focus on the season. The club is in a quiet and stable situation, this is not the time to talk about this, this is the time to play football, there are many deadlines, I just want to focus on the season. “ The Paris player pronounced on whether they defended better by playing with the 4-4-2 system against Saint Éttiene: “I think there was an awareness that it was not enough for players of this level to make such little effort. After that it is not perfect, I will not say that it is perfect, but we are much better, and that relieves the players behind, they are much better to pass us better balls. It is give and take. It is not a matter of systemEven if three people have to make an effort, it was not enough. We have television, we watch the games, there has been a conscience, we are not the best defenders in the world, but it is better and we see it in the field. Behind, they have to run less for us because we do our job. “The ‘7’ was asked about whether he tends to free himself in the field: “Yes, we feel better physically, many players have had technical problems. Ney and I had many technical problemsIcardi arrived, there was only Di Maria who was already at the top, so it was difficult to repeat the efforts. We feel better and better and we are able to repeat the efforts, the high intensity races, it’s great. ” 7last_img read more

Why start with 2000? – asks prior victims’ survivors

first_imgExtrajudicial killings’ InquiryKaieteur News Publisher Glenn LallRelatives of the victims of unsolved murders are up in arms over President David Granger’s recent announcement that he would open an inquiry into extrajudicial killings that occurred from 2000 onwards.Granger’s announcement has been met with disbelief in sections of society, since murder—the premeditated killing of a human being by another human being—does not have a statute of limitations.Political pundits have even called the move an effective “diss” of the relatives of the victims, many of whom are still grieving for their respective losses.Guyana Times caught up with the relatives of the victim of one such murder, which occurred more than 20 years ago but is still fresh in the memory of loved ones.One of the most egregious high-profile cases to date sees the implicated murderer not only walking about scot free, but openly abusing the freedoms and rights of others. According to media reports at the time, on January 20, 1994, on the Mc Doom Public Road, East Bank Demerara, Mohan ‘Glen’ Lall, owner of the Kaieteur News, shot and killed 30-year-old resident Kevin France. He was never arrested, nor was any charge brought against him for the vigilante-style killing. Thus it is strange that Granger’s recent call for an inquiry into extrajudicial killings is being limited to between 2000 and 2009.Lall, at the time a popular Stabroek Market stall-holder and rural constable, shot France in the chest at close range with a .38 revolver.On the day of the killing, Lall had allegedly gone to France’s McDoom residence and a confrontation with the young man’s relatives ensued.“We have information to suggest that the two were engaged in a scuffle before the shot was fired,” the police source had said in the February 2, 1994 report.There has never been an inquest into the circumstances of France’s killing – an action that had left his relatives dissatisfied over the years.Before jet setting off to the Middle East this past week, the Head of State had disclosed on his “Public Interest” television programme that the matter of investigating unsolved murders was still a priority. He said, “We are working on the evidence,” and reminded that “it is still a commitment to the mothers of the children who either disappeared or died.”Granger disclosed that the administration had already begun collecting the evidence, although not in a formal way. He said some information has to be collected from various sources because “many of the actual eyewitnesses have been killed during the troubles.”Granger had, in 2014, attempted to get a formal investigation kick started by the National Assembly when he tabled a motion calling for a Commission of Inquiry (COI) to investigate the incidence of criminal violence in Guyana from 2004 to 2010.That motion had spoken specifically to the unlawful killings of Guyanese citizens, including those assassinated or executed and those who had been victims of extra-judicial killings at the hands of the ranks of the Guyana Police Force and the Guyana Defence Force.Political pundits have now sought to weigh in on the President’s statement in light of his commitment to all the mothers of the victims of murders, and juxtaposed against his selective decision to exclude cases such as the Glen Lall killing.Additionally, one observer willing to speak on record told Guyana Times, that the inquiry into killings should date back to 1994. The observer noted that starting the inquiry from that year would give the families of a number of businessmen, who were cold bloodedly murdered by so called freedom fighters, the peace of mind that they have been seeking all these years. Such an investigation, the observer added, will give those families the answers as to why their love ones were killed and who killed them.last_img read more

Reus to Liverpool: Reds fans react to rumours they want Borussia Dortmund star

Bonaventura double gives Gattuso first win

first_img0Shares0000AC Milan’s midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura celebrates after scoring during the Italian Serie A football match against Bologna on December 10, 2017 © AFP / MARCO BERTORELLOMilan, Italy, Dec 10 – Giacomo Bonaventura struck twice as AC Milan bounced back from last week’s embarrassing draw at Benevento by beating Bologna 2-1 on Sunday to give Gennaro Gattuso his first win as coach.Midfielder Bonaventura opened the scoring early on before Simone Verdi’s leveller, but grabbed the winner 14 minutes from time. It was a much-needed win for Gattuso after his reign began last weekend with Milan becoming the first team to fail to beat Benevento this season as goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli scored in injury-time, before a much-changed side were beaten at Croatians Rijeka in the Europa League.Milan moved up to seventh in the Serie A table, but are still 11 points off the top four.“It was important to win and we did it, we’re happy,” Bonaventura told Milan’s website.“I struggled at the start of the year because I was not fit, but now I’m slowly starting to reach 100 percent.”Bonaventura wasted little time in putting the hosts ahead at the San Siro, as he latched onto a loose ball on the edge of the area to slot past a wrong-footed Antonio Mirante in the Bologna goal.Ninth-placed Bologna, who were level on points with Milan heading into the game, equalised midway through the first half as Verdi hammered a left-footed shot into the top corner.But Bonaventura, who scored his first goal of the season last weekend at Benevento, got Gattuso off the mark by meeting Fabio Borini’s 76th-minute cross with a powerful downward header.Earlier on Sunday, title hopefuls Napoli and Roma were both held to goalless draws by Fiorentina and Chievo respectively, leaving Inter Milan still ruling the roost at the top of the table.Inter held six-time defending champions Juventus to a 0-0 stalemate on Saturday to stay one point clear of Napoli at the summit.Juve are third, one point further adrift, with Roma five points off top spot but with a game in hand.– Roma frustrated –Roma were frustrated at Chievo, whose veteran goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino made several magnificent saves to deny the dominant away side.Napoli’s Dries Mertens (left) avoids a challenge from Fiorentina’s Bruno Gaspar during the side’s Serie A match in Naples, on December 10, 2017 © AFP / ALBERTO PIZZOLINapoli surrendered first place to Inter after losing at home to Juve last time out, and Sunday’s was another uninspiring home display that did not live up to their reputation as Serie A’s most attractive side.The draw comes after Wednesday’s dispiriting Champions League defeat at Feyenoord, which sent Napoli into the Europa League.“We only have to worry when we don’t create chances, but now we are creating them,” coach Maurizio Sarri said.“I was worried by Wednesday’s performance, not this one.“It’s the kind of game where if you win 1-0, everyone says Napoli have found themselves again.”Roma stayed in touch with the top three but can also be caught by local rivals Lazio, whose game with Torino in Rome on Monday is one of their two games in hand on the top three.Chievo keeper Sorrentino blocked everything Roma threw at him, denying Patrik Schick and Gerson with a superb 24th-minute double save and making a string of other stops.But the 38-year-old’s best moment came with seven minutes remaining when Schick, making his full Roma debut, bore down on goal looking for the winner.The Czech ripped a shot that was sharply deflected, and Sorrentino, already diving one way, stuck out a leg to save what looked a certain goal and a point for his team.“It was one-way traffic,” bemoaned Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco.“We had opportunities in both the first and second half. We deserved a goal, but we didn’t score and that is our fault. We need to be more clinical in front of goal.”Rock-bottom Benevento returned to losing ways with a 2-0 loss at Udinese, whose goals came from Antonin Barak and Kevin Lasagna.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bayern need ‘cool heads and hot hearts’ to shock Real: chairman

first_img0Shares0000“Juve are a good example of putting pressure on Real in Madrid,” said Bayern Munich’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “We need cool heads and hot hearts.” © AFP/File / Christof STACHEBerlin, Germany, Apr 30 – Bayern Munich need “cool heads and hot hearts” if they are to learn from Juventus and pull off an unlikely Champions League victory at Real Madrid, says chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.Bayern face an uphill task in Tuesday’s semi-final second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium after losing 2-1 in Munich last Wednesday when a defensive slip let Marco Asensio hit the winner. To compound their problems, Bayern have lost both key defender Jerome Boateng and creative winger Arjen Robben with groin injuries.Nevertheless, the Germans jetted to Madrid on Monday determined to pull off an unlikely win.They can take solace from Juventus who went down fighting with a 3-1 win in Madrid in the quarter-finals after losing 3-0 in Turin, bowing out 4-3 on aggregate.Bayern Munich’s players take part in a training session at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid on April 30, 2018 on the eve of the UEFA Champions League semi-final second-leg against Real Madrid © AFP / Christof STACHE“Juve are a good example of putting pressure on Real in Madrid,” said Rummenigge.“We need cool heads and hot hearts.”Defender Niklas Suele, who will step in for Boateng at centre-back, added: “It’s a difficult starting position, but we trust ourselves to do it.“It will be important to switch well between attack and defence.“We also did well against (Cristiano) Ronaldo (who failed to score) in the first leg.”– Pressure to score –Rummenigge says the loss of Boateng and Robben gives their replacements the chance to step up and shine.“Boateng and Robben will not make the trip and we can’t change that,” said Rummenigge.Bayern Munich’s French midfielder Franck Ribery takes part in a training session at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid on April 30, 2018 on the eve of the Champions League semi-final second-leg against Real Madrid © AFP / Christof STACHE“I think lamenting makes no sense, we have other players who can step in.“When I look at the development of Niklas Suele, that’s been top notch.“Whoever stands on the pitch will have to go to their limits if we want to be successful.”Bayern must score at least two goals to have any chance of reaching the final on May 26 in Kiev.“We’re confident,” said right-back Joshua Kimmich, who scored in the first leg.“We did not play at our top level and still had some chances.“The aim is to score two goals and conceding wouldn’t change much.”In the first leg, the Germans were kicking themselves for converting just one of their 17 shots on goal, compared to Real’s seven, two of which Marcelo and Asensio put away.“We will get some chances and when we get them, we will have to use them,” said Bayern president Uli Hoeness.Rummenigge defended Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski, who was criticised in the German media for struggling in front of goal in the first leg.Bayern Munich must do without injured central defender Jerome Boateng at the Bernabeu © AFP/File / Christof STACHE“I find this discussion ridiculous, as we all actually find it ridiculous at Bayern Munich,” fumed Rummenigge, a former striker.“He has scored 39 goals again this year and we are glad that he is with us and that next year he will play with us.”Rummenigge pointed to legendary Bayern striker Gerd Mueller, who scored 68 goals in 62 games for West Germany in the 1970s. “He (Lewandowski) is a goal machine and I can remember Gerd Mueller for example, who is the number one in all (goal) statistics, not only at Bayern Munich, but throughout Germany.“He also had eight or ten games in which things did not work out, where he didn’t play the way he wanted to.“But then, there are days when you score two or three times.“I hope he (Lewandowski) has a day like that tomorrow.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

SATURDAY NIGHT FIXTURE FOR DONEGAL SFC SEMI-FINAL BETWEEN ST EUNAN’S AND ST MICHAEL’S

first_imgGAA: The mouth-watering clash between St Eunan’s and St Michael’s will be held on Saturday 26th at 7.30pm at Mac Cumhaill Park.St Michael’s booked their semi-final spot courtesy of their emphatic win over Malin at O’Donnell Park yesterday afternoon. Reigning Donegal SFC holders St Eunan’s delivered a superb display against local rivals Glenswilly.It was a closely fought opening period, but Glenswilly failed to convert their chances when they were on top and paid the price.A sweeping counter-attack was finished off by Lee McMonagle and there was no way back for Glenswilly after that.McMonagle added another goal and Eunan’s ran out comfortable winners in the end. St Michael’s have been in sparkling form all year and sit top of the All-County League Division One.They cruised through the group stages and dispatched Malin with ease yesterday afternoon.One worry for Eddie Harkin – without being disrespectful to the teams they have faced so far in truth St Michael’s haven’t been tested, where as St Eunan’s will have been given a huge boost with their win over Glenswilly.The clash will draw a bumper crowd to Mac Cumhaill Park, the clash between the two sides at the same stage last season was a superb match and it promises to be another cracking encounter.It’s expected that the other Donegal SFC semi-final between Kilcar and Glenties will take place in either Donegal Town or O’Donnell Park. SATURDAY NIGHT FIXTURE FOR DONEGAL SFC SEMI-FINAL BETWEEN ST EUNAN’S AND ST MICHAEL’S was last modified: September 14th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more
