Djokovic joins Nadal’s campaign in “class act”

first_imgSince then, quite a few athletes have joined this campaign, quite a few athletes comparable to Fernando Alonso, Andres Iniesta, Rudy Fernández, Alex Dujsebaev, Gerard Piqué, Carolina Marín … and lots of extra. Now Novak Djokovic is added to this listing, and Rafa Nadal thanked him publicly on social networks in a “class act”. The Serbian already donated a number of days in the past one million to the bathrooms in his nation.Nadal himself, who’s quarantining at his house in the Balearic Islands, claimed to alter his chip after studying of Wimbledon’s suspension. He continues his coaching at house earlier than the uncertainty of when they are going to return to the tracks. Primary and two in the world, 17 Grand Slam of the primary by 19 of the second, however Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal proceed to steer by instance off the slopes. Final week, the Balearic, by the hand of Pau Gasol, they launched solidarity initiative to fight the coronavirus disaster. In collaboration with the Pink Cross, The Mallorcan and Catalan made a donation for the ‘Pink Cross Responds’ undertaking, with the intention of elevating funds for these households and teams most affected because of the COVID-19 pandemic.last_img read more

“We can be a better team if the Euro Cup is played in 2022”

first_imgFrom the ‘staff’, how is the preparation considered?The scenario right now is that the April qualifiers are played in October. That of June, in November. The date of April will be the play-off. It remains the June 2021 and the entire season until 2022 preparation for the European Championship.Could that Euro 2022 and World Cup 2023 be the moment for La Roja?We hope it is. We don’t know how they will organize that, there will be no time for the next year to have a World Cup because there is no time to play the qualifying matches.How have you seen the internationals in the talk they have had?After the individualized analyzes of each player, we are now meeting with them because the next call will not be until September. I am suffering for them, because I know what it means for an elite athlete to be confined. It’s like you have racehorses locked up. Those horses need to run, and run fast.Unfortunately, footballers don’t live in garden houses …They have a lot of merit. They are disciplined, organized. Because of the conditions, they have more merit than they do. They get ingenuity and desire. When you really want, you can. I know that they are doing everything they can. Coronavirus | “My wife is a nurse; psychologically it is hard” Are Difficult days Y complicated in all Spain. Also at Jorge Vildasince his wife works in the health sector. Even so, he does not neglect his work, nor his players. With the Euro moving away from the bottom …How do you and your family handle the confinement?So far, no tragedy has touched us closely. My wife is a nurse, so she is telecommuting, she does the triage. Psychologically it is tough, with 150 queued calls. He is doubling shifts. It is my turn with the children, with the eight year old I am teaching and with the little one non-stop. And at the same time, working.This issue of the coronavirus caught the National Team in the United States, contesting the SheBelieves Cup …The day we felt away was the day of the game against England, the day before we returned. News came out that they could close the borders. We had uncertainty and until we got on the stopover in Miami we didn’t all breathe. The entire delegation acted amazingly. At breakfast we met to express what the situation was. It was a little bit more special, but they acted very professionally.Did they take any exceptional sanitary measures?From the beginning of the trip, since the pandemic had already been discussed, the doctor was very attentive. The indications were given, we were very aware of any type of cold, of anomaly. Days have passed, how do you assess the passage of Spain through the SheBelieves?Many national team players have taken two or three steps forward. 14 months ago, when we faced the USA, every time they caught the ball we felt fear. Not anymore, we have shown that we can dominate the best in the world. In the stands there were many fans who knew our players, who asked them for their shirts …UEFA has canceled the U19 European Championship due to COVID-19.It is a shame, because for some their cycle ends. We want to tell you that there is also the Sub-20, there is the Promises that tends to be Sub-23. All the lower categories are still very alive and they will have options.center_img The Eurocup is going to be played in 2022, one year after what was planned.UEFA confirmation is missing. It does not worry me. They can give the same or better performance within two years. And by 2022, those in lower categories will have options.The delay of the Euro will produce two years of hiatus …We really wanted, of course. But you have to take the positive side. We still have to get the ticket, we do not have it, but we will have more time to prepare. What has happened at SheBelieves is a starting point for growth. I hope and believe that in two years we will be a better team than now.Could these two years of hiatus bring a generational change?What will happen is that there will be players with a better level. It will be more difficult to choose. A pleasant problem. Quarantine | “For them, it’s like locking racehorses”last_img read more

Another blow for Man United

first_imgLONDON (AP):After another lacklustre week in the short reign of Louis van Gaal, Manchester United will revisit the scene of one of the team’s greatest embarrassments.In January 1984, Bournemouth then playing in the third tier eliminated defending champions United from the FA Cup in one of the competition’s great upsets. Now, Bournemouth are in the Premier League for the first time and preparing to host United tomorrow.The disparity between United and Bournemouth is vast. United have the league’s biggest stadium (76,000-capacity); Bournemouth’s is the smallest (11,500). United have won a record 20 top-flight titles; Bournemouth have zero.Although United are three points from first place and Bournemouth are barely out of the relegation zone on goal difference, the south-coast club has been buoyed by the greatest result in its history: Winning at Premier League champions Chelsea last weekend.United, though, are making the long trip to the seaside town after failing to qualify for the round of 16 in the Champions League.And United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger starts a three-game ban after accepting a Football Association charge for violent conduct yesterday. The German stuck out his left arm and caught West Ham defender Winston Reid in the throat as both players jostled for position from a free kick during the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.Adding to United’s problems is a lengthy injury list that includes captain Wayne Rooney and defenders Matteo Darmian and Chris Smalling.”We have a lot of injuries,” United midfielder Marouane Fellaini said. “There’s nothing we can do about that. We have a lot of players in the squad that the manager has given a chance to and now they can show themselves, but I hope the injured players come back soon.”CHELSEA DANGERRestored to the starting lineup for Chelsea’s Champions League win over FC Porto, striker Diego Costa will now be looking to start scoring on a regular basis.The Spain forward has scored only three league goals so far this season.”He is lacking in confidence, clearly,” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said.After winning the league by eight points in May, Chelsea could find themselves in the relegation zone before playing at surprise leaders Leicester on Monday. Leicester are 17 points in front of 14th-place Chelsea.Mourinho’s side is only two points above the relegation zone after losing to Bournemouth, with its hopes of qualifying for the Champions League looking increasingly reliant on winning the competition.Monday’s game is Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri’s first meeting with the club he managed between 2000 and 2004, when Mourinho first took charge.”I’m sure at the end of the season they will be in the top four,” Ranieri said. “I still think they will make the Champions League. For now it is bad luck, but when they start to win, they will arrive.”GARDE REUNIONThere’s another reunion this weekend with former Arsenal player Remi Garde hosting the London club as manager of Aston Villa on Sunday.While Villa are in last place, Arsenal are two points from the top in second and looking forward to the round of 16 in the Champions League after turning around a faltering campaign.Garde won the league with Arsenal in 1998 during his three years with the club at the start of Arsene Wenger’s reign.last_img read more

Hubert Lawrence looks at the Zika threat and Olympics in 2017?

first_imgWith the Zika virus kicking up rumpus in Brazil, there is growing discussion about moving the 2016 Olympics from Rio de Janeiro. However, the Olympics are so big and costly that few countries could attempt to take the Games with just six months to prepare. It’s a big ask.Beijing and London, host cities of the 2008 and 2012 Games, would probably be the best bets to take over if Zika forced Rio to defer. Both cities have the facilities and recent experience in organising the biggest multi-sport event in the world. With the schedule as tight as it is, those inputs are critical.One wonders whether all the other inputs could be mobilised in time. Volunteers play a huge role in running the sporting events and visitor hospitality, and by this stage their recruitment would need to be in top gear already. Even in the case of London, work might be needed to polish and shine the stadia that housed sporting contests four years ago. This requirement would be even greater for Beijing.Even so, their venue costs would be far less.Neither city may want to take up the challenge if Rio is out. Added to that, hosting the Olympics isn’t cheap. Beijing reportedly spent US$40 billion in 2008 and London shelled out US$13 billion in 2012. The Rio figure keeps morphing, but is probably some in-between the two. That’s not chump change.NO BEIJING OR LONDONWith the short time to prepare and the costs, it’s a good guess that Beijing and London won’t come running as substitute venues this year.If the Zika threat clears soon, the best bet will be for Rio to host the Games as planned. If the mosquito-borne virus infects the Games schedule, we could end up with an Olympics in 2017.With Brazil spending tons of cash to get ready, it’s going to be hard on that sports-loving nation to be left with a big bill, no Games and none of the financial benefits from increased tourism income.It follows then that if the Zika threat causes a postponement but is resolved by year end, the world’s best athletes could be doing the samba next summer. That’s the only solution that leaves Brazil with the Games it has worked so hard to prepare for.For everyone’s health and for the sake of the Games, we can only hope the Zika solution comes very quickly.n Hubert Lawrence attended the Games in Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London.last_img read more

Man United and Liverpool target to make non-European move?

first_img Inter Milan star Fredy Guarin Manchester United and Liverpool target Fredy Guarin might still leave Inter Milan this window for a non-European side.The transfer windows in both Russian and Turkey are still open so sides like Zenit St Petersburg, managed by former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, and Galatasaray can still sign the Colombia man.Guarin had hoped to secure a move to England, especially to Louis van Gaal’s side where he could link up with international team-mate Radamel Falcao.But both United and Brendan Rodgers passed on the option to sign the midfielder and he could now secure himself a highly lucrative move to one of the nations that still have until September 6th to complete any transfer deals.Guarin and Villas-Boas worked together at Porto and the former Chelsea boss has kept in close contact with his former player, even guiding him to Inter before he became unsettled at the Serie A side. 1last_img read more

first_imgPROUD Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has paid tribute to his team for bouncing back – after being written off by the pundits.The Glenties man joined the Seniors and Minors in the traditional reception back in The Diamond in Donegal Town last night as the players and the fans partied into the wee small hours.And right they were – so many new milestones in the remarkable Donegal man that is Jim McGuinness. First time ever that Donegal won both Seniors and Minors in the same year; and a first victory over Monaghan since 1983. “We were absolutely wrote off a week out from the Derry match and we’re Ulster champions today.” said Jim, defiant, and happy.“I think it’s our best victory in terms of the questions that were being asked of us and what was being said about us, and had the boys got the stomach for it. I think they proved they have. I think it’s our best victory because of the circumstances and because what surrounded it.“The boys weren’t going to come off that field beaten. That was the key thing for us.”Anyone who thought McGuinness was getting complacent about the big occasion would have had that knocked out of them as Jim bounded child-like across the pitch after yesterday’s victory to cheer and hug his heroes, men who are “an absolute privilege to work with”. “I am just so proud of them. They are immense to work with. Their focus is unbelievable. Their energy, their work-rate and their commitment to Donegal.”It was a tense and tough game in Clones as Monaghan attempted to bully Donegal off the pitch. Late challenges and several off-the-ball challenges disrupted the game.But it was fascinating to watch; and brilliant to see Man of the Match Ryan McHugh bounding up the wing, big Neil Gallagher catch the ball so high he should have been wearing an oxygen mask.Patrick McBrearty and Darrach O’Connor were superb; and Karl Lacey his usual sublime self.The bridge in Pettigo saw more silverware over it last night; and then on to The Diamond in Donegal Town. These are special nights. Donegal have won just eight Ulster titles in a century; three have been in the last four years.The players were once again brilliant with the fans on their return, captain Michael Murphy meeting and greeting as many fans as possible.And he for one is hoping this year isn’t the last with Jim McGuinness at the helm.“We want him here for many more years to come,” said the Glenswilly man.
