But he did not appear – indicating his belief that he is no longer under contract at Camp Nou.The 33-year-old six times world player of the year informed the club on Tuesday he wished to leave immediately – and his lawyers say that there is a clause in his four-year contract, signed in 2017, which would have allowed the forward to leave the club for free if he had requested it by June 10.They will argue that that date – which would have been the end of the 2019-2020 season – is now irrelevant after the coronavirus delays that led to the season’s extension and the team playing deep into August.Tags: Camp NouCOVID-19 TestingLionel Messi
Nursery and primary school students and teachers from across Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) took to the streets in Linden on Friday as they brought the curtains down on this year’s children’s Mashramani celebrations with the annual costume parade.One of the floats during Region 10’s costume and float paradeGlittery faces and colourful costumes engulfed the streets as the procession pranced from the Five Corner area, along Republic Avenue before heading to the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC). The costumes were designed under the theme: “Folklores in Guyana”. Gyrating to the sounds of Soca music, the students made their way along the path as hundreds lined the streets to get a glimpse of the spectacle. At the MSC, the displays of cultural themes were judged based on their originality and how well they depicted the spirit of Mashramani. In the nursery category, Pine Street Nursery maintained its position with first place. Coomacka Nursery placed second while Republic Avenue Nursery secured third place. In the Primary category, Amelia’s Ward Primary gained first place with their costume depiction, “Mermadaleons in action”, while St Aidan’s Primary placed second and Watooka Day Primary School copped third place.
