It would be imprudent to promise a resumption of La Liga before the summer, said Spain’s health minister “I can’t tell you right now if professional football is going to be able to restart its activities before the summer. It would be imprudent on my part,” he said during a daily briefing on the coronavirus pandemic. The minister sounded a note of caution over La Liga plans to test players for the virus before returning to training and resuming a season suspended on March 12, saying giving priority to footballers might breach government policy. “The diagnostic tests of any kind must be made available to the regional governments,” Illa said. Before players can return to the pitch they will have to undergo COVID-19 screening tests. They will then continue to be monitored on a regular basis.Advertisement Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced Saturday that Spaniards will be allowed out for exercise and to take walks from next weekend, with the state of emergency extended this week until May 9.

Fans want board-level changes at Arsenal

first_imgThe Arsenal board need to look at themselves rather than just the narrower issue of Arsene Wenger’s future at the club when they meet on Thursday, according to a supporters’ group. Arsenal appear on course for an eighth trophyless season in a row, but despite that Wenger’s job does not appear to be under threat as he still has the support of majority shareholder Stan Kroenke. However, the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) has called for the board to reassess their own role in the team’s success and create a more challenging environment. “At the meeting the board must review its approach to much more than just the position of Arsene Wenger,” an AST spokesperson told Press Association Sport. “The board needs to consider recruiting new members with exposure to the football world who can support and challenge Wenger to be a better manager. “It’s wrong to focus on just him at the moment. Every single non-executive director of the club is over 70 years old and it is time for some fresh blood. We would call for Stan Kroenke to meet with (second-largest shareholder) Alisher Usmanov to work out how to make it stronger.” The Gunners’ trophy cabinet has been empty since 2005 when they lifted their last piece of silverware, the FA Cup, and this season looks set to end without success. Arsenal were knocked out of the Capital One Cup in a penalty shoot-out by npower League Two side Bradford in December, were beaten by Championship side Blackburn at home in the FA Cup last weekend, and their Champions League campaign has been left in tatters following a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates by Bayern Munich in the first leg of their last 16 tie. Wenger’s side also face an uphill struggle to secure a Champions League place for next season as they are currently in fifth place, four points behind great north London rivals Tottenham. However, AST insisted now is not the time to assess Wenger’s performance, but plans must be put in place to improve the structure of the club for the coming season. “Our position is that we review the manager at the end of the season,” the AST spokesperson said. “The board must ask hard questions about itself and not just the manager. “AST members are not happy with the current situation. We think the club needs to review how they scout, recruit and pay players as the current approach is creating a depreciation in competitiveness. It is time for Kroenke to show to Arsenal fans some of his vision, to end his silence and to engage properly with them.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Guyana Jaguars midfielder Marsh-Brown quits UK club

first_imgLONDON, England (CMC) – Midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown, who represented Guyana in this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, has had his contract with Welsh club Newport County terminated by mutual consent.London-born Marsh-Brown, who has not been in manager Michael Flynn’s good books for some time, said he needed a “new adventure”.A statement from the club, who play in England’s League Two, having narrowly missed out on promotion last season, said: “On behalf of everyone connected with the club, we would like to wish Keanu all the best in the future and thank him for his efforts whilst at Rodney Parade.”Marsh-Brown joined Newport on a two-year deal after leaving Forest Green Rovers, another League Two side, in the summer of 2018.He scored one goal in 24 appearances for Newport in an injury-plagued first season at the club, netting in a victory at Yeovil Town in March.But, after representing Golden Jaguars in their historic appearance at this summer’s Gold Cup, the 27-year-old has not featured in manager Flynn’s plans at all during this campaign.Marsh-Brown said: “The time has come for me to depart from Newport County.“It was a tough decision but I feel it was the right time for a change.“Thank you to all the boys at the club who made my time there special!“Now it’s time to kick on for my new chapter in football.

Eagles: A Different Game on Air Celebrating Ndola Victory

first_imgSipping from the drink in the paper cup in his left hand intermittently, Mikel attributed the good run that afternoon to the commitment of the players and the coaching crew. “I have the belief that we can reach new heights with this team. The boys are so committed that it makes you happy. The coaching crew is made up of very matured and brilliant people who respect the players,” observed the midfielder who is now the second longest serving player at Chelsea FC having spent 10 years at Stamford Bridge.In his analysis of the game with the Chipolopolo, Mikel admitted that the combination of the experience of the mostly Europe-based players helped to give Eagles the edge over Zambia. “They (Zambians) got confused by the short passes between our forwards and the midfielders. They perhaps were expecting long balls but we opted not to do that but take the game to them in the way that got us the two goals in the first half,” stressed Mikel who led Nigeria’s Olympic team to bronze medal finish at the last Games in Rio, Brazil.With Eagles in firm control of the Group B pairing on three points with both Algeria and Cameroun having just a point each following their one-all draw same Sunday night in Algiers, the Blues midfielder insists that Nigeria cannot afford to allow any slip now. “Each and every one of us is determined to go to the World Cup. Now that we are top of the table, we have to remain there,” said Mikel as he took another sip from the content of his paper cup.What perhaps is giving the Eagles supremo the confidence to remain on top of the group is the fact that Nigeria’s next two games of the qualifiers are at home in Uyo to Algeria and Cameroun in November and early next year. “We should be able to consolidate with this advantage. By the time we will be going away to Cameroun and Algeria, we should have maximised the advantage to stay at the top of the group.”At 29 years, Mikel believes he has the capacity to continue playing at top level till his 35th birthday. “I am 29 years now and my desire is to continue playing till I am 35 years old. The boys need my experience to guide them. I want to lead the team to the World Cup in Russia and make impact.”Although Mikel had earlier admitted at the post-match conference that the group is a tough one having three teams at the last World Cup in Brazil and a 2012 AFCON winner paired together, he however believes with the Franco-German coach, Gernot Rohr, in charge and forging a new spirit in the team, Nigeria is in safe hands.Midway into the four hours and 20 minutes flight from Ndola to Abuja however took a new tempo with the blaring of Nigeria’s hip-hop star, Phyno’s tune, ‘Connect’ from a Bluetooth speaker, turning the Airbus 737-800 series into one large party hall. Interestingly, it was a double celebration for one of Mikel’s players, Brown Ideye, whose birthday fell on that match-day one of the Russia 2018 qualifiers.Nigeria’s Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung; former NFF President, Aminu Maigari; NFF President, Amaju Pinnick; his other board members on board the flight like 1st Vice-President Seyi Akinwunmi; 2nd Vice-President, Shehu Dikko; Chairman of the Technical Committee, Chris Green; board member and Chairman of Enyimba FC, Felix Anyasi-Agwu; former COJA chieftain, Mainasara Illo; and several chairmen of state FAs and clubs joined in popping champagne to celebrate Ideye’s birthday.Dalung, who was equally as happy as every Nigerian on that flight, showed some dancing skills to the delight of all. The Plateau State lawyer-politician hinted he last danced 22 years ago but happy doing so again to celebrate Nigeria’s victory over Zambia.But the anticlimax of the night was the news on arrival at 11-20pm at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport that the Indomitable Lions played one-all with Algeria to deny the Desert Foxes from sharing the glory of another three-point winners in the group.Nigeria won a competitive away game for the first time in 23 months as Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho scored before Collins Mbesuma pulled one back in the Zambian Copper-belt capital. Manchester City of England prodigy Iheanacho has now scored in each of his last four matches for Nigeria: against Mali in France; Luxembourg in Luxembourg City; Tanzania in Uyo and; Zambia in Ndola.The Zambians had hoped to get Nigeria’s Europe-based contingent rendered weak and dehydrated with an early afternoon start (2.30pm), but the Eagles approached the match in a matured manner, not engaging in too much running in the first half-hour, and then taking their chances without blinking.The quintet of goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene, Stopilla Sunzu, Nathan Sinkala, Rainford Kalaba and Collins Mbesuma were familiar faces in the Zambian starting line-up. But Fwayo Tembo, Chisamba Lungu and Winston Kalengo are also known to be tough customers.They tried to run hard and wear the Eagles down in the 35-degree heat, but after surviving the first half-hour, the Nigerian attack stepped up a gear and scored two brilliant goals in 10 minutes. Eagles’ goalie Carl Ikeme and Williams Troost Ekong however stood out of the Nigerian pack with their five-star performances in Ndola.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria began the march to Russia 2018 World Cup on a bright note on Sunday afternoon in Ndola, grabbing maximum points against the Chipolopolo of Zambia. DURO IKHAZUAGBE who witnessed the encounter reports…Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, was a very happy man on Sunday night aboard the Arik Airline flight from Ndola in Zambia to Abuja. The reason for Mikel’s expansive laughter and hand pumping was obvious to all who know him. To some, the Chelsea star is more of a recluse, who hardly mixes with teammates or even fans. But that night was different. As captain of the Super Eagles, Mikel was like the commander of a battalion who has just led his army to conquer a very crucial territory. Beating the Chipolopolo in a World Cup qualifier right in front of their President, Edgar Chagwa Lungu, at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola was no mean feat.Grinning from ear to ear and shaking hands of some of the football stakeholders partying aboard the aircraft, Mikel opened up to THISDAY: “This victory is good. It has given us the edge in our Group B. Winning away in a tight group like this is not easy. Now, we have a very good chance to qualify for the World Cup if we keep our heads and play at our best level.”last_img read more

Concerns raised as Expo Rail construction continues

first_imgProgress on the Expo Line — a rail line that will run down Exposition Boulevard and around the USC campus — continues to chug along, but recent developments may cause traffic congestion in some areas and unrest among citizens in others.The final version of the project’s Environmental Impact Report was recently released, outlining the possible impacts of extending passenger train service throughout the area. The report noted several overpasses that residents desired near schools could not be built, leaving many residents upset.The rail line will pass near Dorsey High School and Foshay Learning Center, where at-level street crossing will be built as opposed to aerial overpasses. Concerns have been and continue to be raised about the safety of the crossings, especially in areas with high numbers of children.“Our basic objection is that the line is being built at street level, and that’s a danger,” said Damien Goodmon, coordinator of the Fix Expo Rail Campaign.Expo Line project officials and MTA policies, however, said the street and pedestrian crossings are safe and will not be congested.Beyond safety concerns, the project has faced budgeting and scheduling hurdles from its inception.“This region needs rail transit,” Goodmon said. “But it does not need it built cheaply and inadequately.”But Gabriela Collins of the Expo Line project said many of the concerns have arisen from project enhancements that were not part of the original plan. She said the main goal is simply to finish the project.“We’ve been responsive to concerns,” Collins said. “Our focus is to work to complete construction in a timely fashion and provide an alternative to the 10 freeway, which is highly congested.”The issues with scheduling — the project was originally set to be finished earlier than is now planned — have been brought to California Public Utilities Commissioner Timothy Simon, who said in an open letter that expediting the project is a major concern.“You can be assured that I am fully aware of the legitimate public need for a speedy resolution,” Simon wrote. “In this regard, I have asked all of our staff to expedite this process. I consider this of the highest priority.”The project is currently in Phase 2, which encompasses certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report and outlines an extension and certification of the rail line from Culver City to Santa Monica.The heavy construction that can be seen around USC is part of the first phase of the Expo Line project, which consists of building the Expo Line from Culver City to Downtown Los Angeles and includes building stations alongside USC on Flower Street at 23rd Street and Jefferson Boulevard and on Exposition at USC and Expo Park.The rail will go underground just past Jefferson at Figueroa Street and Exposition, Collins said. Now, stations are being built at Jefferson and Hoover Street as well as on Vermont Avenue and Exposition.Though there is no specific timeline for the construction, Collins said most of it should be completed over the course of the next year.The rail line will run parallel to the Santa Monica Freeway, one of Los Angeles’ most congested freeways. Other stations will include Vermont, Western, Crenshaw, La Brea and La Cienega, some of the busiest streets in L.A.Once complete, the rail will allow USC students and others easier access to all areas of Los Angeles.“The fact that those stations are being built will provide people with easier access to the Galen Center, the Coliseum, the science center and museums without having to look or pay for parking,” Collins said.According to the Expo Rail Line website, the rail from Culver City to Downtown L.A. via USC will be running by 2012, while the project as a whole is scheduled for completion by 2016.last_img read more
