Barcelona get Dembele boost before Classico, Messi might miss out

first_imgAdvertisement u0bNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs5bmakWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E8p( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 2wWould you ever consider trying this?😱fb0Can your students do this? 🌚mkRoller skating! Powered by Firework Ousmane Dembele returned to first team training after missing out on two weeks of action due to an ankle injury and tonsillitis. The attacker suffered an ankle sprain in a match against Leganes which Barca won 3-1 and has been absent ever since. His return to first team training almost certainly means that he will be available for Wednesday’s Copa Del Rey clash against Real Madrid.Advertisement Despite the good news, Barcelona still have a massive headache heading into the El Classico. Lionel Messi was not to be seen in training on Monday. With the extent of the Argentine’s injury still in the dark, this could be cause for great concern for the Catalans. Messi has been instrumental in Barcelona’s table topping season, as he has been for the past decade, and missing him for a long time at this stage in the season might very well disrupt Barca’s progression in the Copa Del Rey and the Champions League. Messi has notched up 21 goals and 10 assists in 20 Catalans to the top games for his club this season in the La Liga, propelling the Catalans to the top of the league, favourites to win the title for the second successive season.Advertisement However, Barcelona have beaten Real comprehensively at the beginning of the season without the Argentine, with a margin of 5 goals to 1, so the Galacticos will still be considered to be the underdogs and will have an uphill battle to get a win out of the fixture.Read also :Advertisement Klopp claims referee’s mistake affected Liverpool for the worse against West HamManuel Pellegrini claims that Klopp is used to winning with offside goals Advertisementlast_img read more

Rooney injury ‘not so serious’

first_img0Shares0000MANCHESTER, December 3- Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal played down the extent of Wayne Rooney’s knee injury after the striker missed his side’s 2-1 win over Stoke City on Tuesday.Rooney was not included in the hosts’ squad after injuring himself during United’s 3-0 victory at home to Hull City on Saturday, but Van Gaal said that he did not expect his captain to be out of action for long. “It’s his knee, but we have to wait until tomorrow (Wednesday) to say anything about him because you never know with a knee,” Van Gaal told reporters at Old Trafford.“My opinion is it’s not so serious, but I’m not a doctor. We have to wait for the scan, then we’ll know more. I hope it’s not so serious.”Asked if the 29-year-old England star was likely to recover in time for United’s next game away to Southampton on Monday, Van Gaal replied: “I don’t think so, but you never know.”The Dutchman was also upbeat about the hamstring injury that ruled record signing Angel di Maria out of the Stoke game, although the Argentina winger is also set to miss the trip to St Mary’s.“Di Maria is not so serious, but he won’t play against Southampton,” said Van Gaal.United’s victory over Stoke, secured by goals from Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata, tightened their grip on fourth place and took them to within a point of third-place Southampton, who visit Arsenal on Wednesday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Taggers, parents may both be fined

first_imgCity officials are also considering new penalties for property owners who leave graffiti on their buildings. Molina’s motion, co-authored by Supervisor Don Knabe, directs the county chief executive officer to work with the County Counsel’s Office, Sheriff’s Department and the Department of Public Works to create the program. “The key here is that cases of graffiti should not be treated solely as criminal activity,” said Knabe spokesman David Sommers. “Criminal punishment isn’t nearly enough to deal with the problem. “We also need to get restitution. We need to be able to clean up the damage caused by this and if these are minors doing this, we need to get their parents involved to take responsibility for the actions of their children.” The motion, which supervisors will vote on Oct. 9, is especially notable because it compels parents of minors to shoulder some of the punitive burden. “Graffiti vandals and their families should pay a stiff price for their misdeeds and parents of minors involved in these crimes must also be held to account,” Molina said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! County Supervisor Gloria Molina said the proposed pilot project would compel graffiti vandals – and if the vandals are minors, their parents as well – to appear at a hearing where they could be fined and ordered to pay the cost of cleanup. The fines would be in addition to any penalties criminal court authorities deem appropriate. Unlike the court process, the civil panel would convene promptly and impose penalties swiftly in graffiti cases, Molina’s spokeswoman Roxane Marquez said. “Graffiti is not a minor transgression but one that relies on fear, intimidation and violence to silence law-abiding residents,” Molina said. “The murders of Maria Hicks of Pico Rivera last month and Robert Whitehead of unincorporated Valinda in March of last year illustrate this fact. Both of them paid with their lives for trying to stop vandals from defacing property – and both killings have sparked tremendous outrage.” LOS ANGELES: The graffiti law would crack down on families and property owners. By Troy Anderson STAFF WRITER As part of stepped-up efforts to combat gang graffiti, Los Angeles County officials have proposed creating a county-run administrative hearing panel similar to traffic court that could impose fines on graffiti vandals and their parents. last_img read more

‘What Fergie did wasn’t professional but it did make for great TV’

first_img1 Flats gives his views on the world of sport every week This column appears in the current edition of Sport magazine. Download the free iPad app here, and follow on twitter @sportmagukI have some friends who have proper jobs.These friends were the ones to whom I turned for advice and introductions when I retired from rugby and became a communications director at Bath Rugby. I had no idea what I was doing, so I asked some people who did.With one notable exception, they all told me the same thing: a comms director is never more than three feet from the CEO and makes totally clear the line he or she will take on every issue. Often the boss proper will decide that line, but the ‘reputation managers’ will be closely involved because they’re the experts in this area. One friend, a comms director at a large London financial firm, said: “My last boss held two interviews in one day without consulting me. I quit on the spot.”The exception I mention was Manchester United – where, I was told over a coffee at Old Trafford, Sir Alex Ferguson ran the show in all areas. Argue with his media approach if you like, but nobody will listen. This is sport, so the gaffer says what he wants. Big businesses would never allow it, yet sport has its own rules of engagement.In rugby union, most of the head coaches who are interviewed weekly can be trusted not to be too aggressive or controversial – but if they want to be then, in my experience, they’ll do just that. There are some genuinely talented, intelligent media teams in English elite rugby, but too few are afforded the control over media messaging that their qualifications and experience deserve.Sports coaches may get interviewed a lot, but this does not make them experts. They should also recognise that emotion will also often play its part in these interviews, and therefore look to their media teams to cross-check their planned answers to likely questions.As someone now in sports media, I know that we garner far better content from those clubs whose coaches think they know best, so perhaps I ought not to mention it just in case somebody listens and changes their approach.Last week Mike Ford, the Bath head coach, responded to a close defeat to Northampton Saints by hammering the young referee for ‘guessing’ his penalty decisions. He might have a point, although I thought the referee did well.Whatever, had a media team been consulted and their educated, balanced approaches been taken on board, this controversy might have been avoided. It’s just not professional or business-savvy, even if it does make for decent telly.David Flatman is a former England rugby union international, broadcaster and punditlast_img read more

Manchester City NOT being investigated by UEFA despite LaLiga complaint

first_imgManchester City are not being investigated by UEFA in relation to Financial Fair Play rules following a complaint by LaLiga, Press Association Sport understands.The Spanish league has issued a statement suggesting there will be an official probe after writing to the European governing body with a formal complaint.In its letter to UEFA last month, LaLiga also complained about Paris St Germain but it is understood that had no impact on the body’s decision to launch an investigation into the French club last week.The statement from LaLiga read: “There will be an investigation following the formal complaint filed by LaLiga asking UEFA to inspect Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City FC for violation of financial fair play regulations.“LaLiga, the association of the best football teams in Spain, is pleased that UEFA has opened a formal investigation into financial fair play at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).“The investigation comes after LaLiga formally requested these tests from PSG and Manchester City FC in August.”It added: “LaLiga asks UEFA to continue its investigation, taking into account PSG’s history of actions. In addition, LaLiga asks UEFA to open a similar investigation to Manchester City.”The complaints were made in a letter on August 22. UEFA announced last Friday, September 1, that PSG were being investigated but it is understood this was not connected to LaLiga’s letter. No investigation has been opened into City.LaLiga’s complaints come after a summer transfer window in which PSG bought Neymar for a world record £198million after activating the Brazilian’s release clause and secured another of Europe’s most highly-rated players, Kylian Mbappe, on a season-long loan from Monaco. City spent more than £200million strengthening their squad.LaLiga claims the finances at Qatari-owned PSG and Abu Dhabi-backed City “are not based on market reality”.LaLiga president Javier Tebas said: “The funding of PSG and Manchester City thanks to state aid distorts European competitions and creates an inflationary spiral that irreparably damages the football industry.”City and UEFA have been contacted by Press Association Sport for comment concerning the claims against the English club.City have been a frequent target for critics since their takeover by Sheikh Mansour’s Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. They did fall foul of FFP regulations in 2014 and were hit with a fine, a transfer spending cap and restrictions on their Champions League squad.In recent years, however, the club have shown strong signs of financial independence and have recorded profits in their last two financial years. 1last_img read more
