UEFA’s plan with the leagues, the Champions League and the contracts

first_imgContracts: One of the problems with ending this season in August or even at the dates of the next, that is, in September, is that the duration of the contracts of the players and coaches should be extended beyond June 30, which that it is even more conflictive in the case of transfers. While FIFA is willing to adapt the rules to take account of this circumstance, the World Players Union (FIFpro) warns that if this is the case, it should be universal and reach all players, not just those that clubs want to retain. .Transfers: Another measure that would extend the season beyond June would be to extend the next transfer window, which would run from June to January, when the winter window should begin. With this measure, it would be easier to end the campaigns with a certain normality and to ease the transfer market at a time when nobody knows when the championships will be able to restart. This matter has also been agreed between FIFA and UEFA.Selections: The dates of the FIFA calendar for teams are affected by the collapse of the calendar. The Euro Cup has been postponed to next summer, but the June international friendlies have not yet been suspended. They will be shortly, among others the one scheduled for June 5 between Spain and Portugal in Madrid. The teams will give up their dates so that they can finish the European leagues and competitions, and if it is still necessary to restart with club football after the summer, the League of Nations will also undergo a modification, which should start on September 3 . Calendar: UEFA manages three possible dates to restart the Championships: mid-May, June and September. The closest one seems unlikely due to the uneven advance of the coronavirus in Europe, and the most distant one would mean having to readjust next season, probably with cuts in the number of teams in each league, in Cup competitions and the change in formats in European competitions. June is the key month, in which Ceferin is confident that he can play again, even if behind closed doors, to finish the domestic leagues. In Spain and Italy, where the virus attacked earlier, it is hoped that it can be restarted sooner. France, Germany and England pose more problems.Champions: UEFA competition secretary Giorgio Marchetti works as the best and fastest solution to the ‘final four’. The idea is to play the second leg matches that are pending in the round of 16 (City-Real Madrid, Bayer-Chelsea, Barça-Naples and Juve-Lyon) and from there play the quarterfinals to a single match and by pure draw to, to Then, play the two semifinals and the final in Istanbul the last weekend of June. If the pandemic reaches Turkey with force as it has in southern Europe, a change of venue would not be ruled out for reasons of greater force. The same plan is contemplated for the Europa League, but here the problem is that to finish the Champions League there are 17 games remaining and to finish the Europa League there are 27 missing. There is a problem with dates.last_img read more

CONMEBOL advances in the rules of prevention before a restart of the competitions

first_imgThe document was prepared with contributions of the Spanish doctor Francisco Forriol and the Uruguayan infectologist Matilde Miralles, both from the body’s Medical Commission. The videoconference also included the President of the Conmebol, Alejandro Domínguez, who in his opening emphasized that “the health will always be above all and decisions will be made based on that premise. ““We like to always work in advance, with predictability, projecting strategies and thinking about the future and how to make our institution and our tournaments ever better, that is why we are calling them today,” said Domínguez, quoted by Conmebol.The coronavirus pandemic caused the temporary paralysis of the Liberating Cups Y South American, as well as the suspension of the first two days of the tie at Qatar World Cup 2022, that had to be disputed at the end of March. The South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) advanced this Tuesday, during a videoconference of the medical chiefs of the member teams, in a protocol from prevention before COVID-19, facing the resumption of competitions.He document, that the next week, was worked through a “draft” with instructions for the individual workouts and collectives, ways of testing, disinfection of common places and personal hygiene of footballers.In this regard, the director of the entity’s Medical Commission, Osvaldo Pangrazio, He explained that Conmebol’s concern lies in the need to have “a tool that allows us from the point of view clearly doctor guide the teams “after the ball returned to the South American fields.He added that needs from each of the countries that make up the Conmebol will be transformed into a protocol that will serve to establish “a way of training and preventing cases of contagion”. All this according to “the laws and health recommendations of each country.”last_img read more

The businesswoman related to Ronaldinho’s fake passport speaks through her lawyer

first_imgThe businesswoman involved in the case of the former Brazilian international player Ronaldinho Gaucho, who is under house arrest for entering Paraguay with a false Paraguayan passport, resorted this Thursday to the Justice to litigate in freedom in the cause he faces for falsification of public documents.Dalia López, fugitive and with an arrest warrant from March 7, raised this Thursday through the lawyer Marcos Estigarribia a generic habeas corpus before the criminal guarantees judge Rolando Duarte, judicial sources quoted by local media reported.Businesswoman founded the action “by reason of being in an imminent trance of being deprived” of her “physical freedom”, according to the text of the judicial document.López, who was the president of the charitable foundation to which Ronaldinho was going to lend her image, has not attended any of the judicial summons to which she was summoned. Given this, Justice declared the state rebellious and ordered his search and capture, which was reiterated two days ago by the Prosecutor’s Office to the National Police.López is missing since the arrest a month ago of Ronaldo de Assis Moreira and his brother Roberto, who a week ago were granted a house arrest by a judge, which they are serving at a hotel in downtown Asunción.This alternative measure was granted after the payment of a bond of $ 1.6 million.Both are accused of using false content public documents since March 4 they entered Paraguay through the Asunción International Airport.Ronaldinho had planned to attend the day after the presentation of a social assistance program for Paraguayan children organized by the López Foundation.López’s defense maintained that the businesswoman commissioned an agency private Paraguayan passports for Ronaldinho and his brother and who was unaware that they were manipulated.For their part, Ronaldinho’s lawyers then argued that the two brothers were considering opening businesses in Paraguay and that they interpreted these passports as a kind of gift.last_img read more

LACC ‘Misplaced’

first_imgThe way Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) is conducting herself now sends a signal that the Commission is seriously “misplaced,” Deputy House Speaker Hans Barchue said.LACC recently announced that it has launched an investigation into the US$1.2 million which, according to the graft commission, was remitted to the House of Representatives to conduct a nationwide consultation on the draft Oil and Gas law.Reacting to LACC’s claims yesterday in a press conference, Deputy Speaker Barchue noted that the LACC’s well-publicized probe is “politically driven and lacks the basis of technical and financial institution as the LACC.”According to him, LACC’s request for him (Barchue) to provide information relative to US$1.2 million that was allegedly given to the House of Representatives is totally “ridiculous.”“I like to point out few errors in that communication from LACC. In the first place, we are not signatories to any account of the House as Speaker and Deputy, respectively. Signatories to the House’s account are the Chairman on Ways, Means and Finance and the Comptroller. How in the world will Cllr. Augustine Toe, who sits at the LACC and had been working with the Legislature over the years failed to know these things?“As chairman of the Consultation Committee, I was only mandated by plenary, the highest decision making body of the House, to supervise the process, that which was done perfectly well.“If there are issues, I believe the LACC should have directed her inquiries to the Chairman on Ways, Means and Finance other than me or the Speaker,” he maintained.The Grand Bassa County lawmaker further added: “I’m not against the LACC probing financial allegations, but I believed their bullet is misguided and is now being used for political reasons other than technical.“Under our constitution, you are not allowed to produce evidence against yourself, but interestingly; the LACC is requesting that I provide information and a comprehensive expenditure report including voucher and budget relating to said amount.“Is the LACC asking me to adduce evidence against myself — taking into account Article 21(h) of the Liberian Constitution, which states: “The accused shall not be compelled to furnish evidence against himself…”?”Deputy Speaker Barchue: “This is a simple and elementary error that makes LACC inept for which the fight against corruption remains a problem in our society today. An anti-graft commission like ours must check the facts properly before moving on with these things, but because there’s a motive; this is what we get from a body that should be exercising high degree of integrity.“Another proof of an inept commission is a January 20, 2015 letter addressed to Representative Edwin M. Snowe in which he (Snowe) was referred to as Chairman on Ways, Means and Finance. Is the LACC not aware that Rep. Snowe is not the chairman on budget at the House but rather Chairman on Rules, Order and Administration? Another myth again is the LACC said the money came from NOCAL, which is false and counterproductive to the operations of the Commission because the money came from the government of Liberia and not NOCAL.“All along, I have been announcing that only US$900,000 was released by the government of Liberia for this purpose, and if LACC is saying that US$1.2 million was issued to the House of Representatives; why not ask the House instead of asking me?”Meanwhile, LACC Chairman Cllr. James Verdier has since contradicted information from the Commission relating to probing these allegations. In an interview Monday at the Capitol Building, Cllr. Verdier dismissed having knowledge on these investigations.However, Justice Minister Cllr. Benedict Sannoh urged the graft commission to stop carrying herself “like the only institution in the fight against corruption” and work with the Justice ministry to address the problems affecting the Liberian society.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Amazing’ Kieran’s life celebrated by family and friends

first_imgThere were tears of joy mixed with sadness today as the friends and family of late Buncrana man Kieran Henderson gathered at a special event to remember him.Kieran, who passed away last year, was a founding member of the Amazing Grace Initiative on the Inishowen Peninsula.His wife Marie and three children were joined by a huge crowd for a coffee-morning at Letterkenny’s CoLab Building to celebrate Kieran’s life. Kieran was a proud member of the team at Druva CloudRanger and was hugely admired by all his colleagues and colleagues at the CoLab.However, it was in a previous life that he first began an active supporter of the Amazing Grace Initiative.Kieran had worked at the Tourism Office in Buncrana and recognised founding member Mike Mullins’ initiative to celebrate the time John Newtown who wrote the iconic hymn.Members of Druva CloudRanger present Kieran’s family and friends with a cheque for €1,000 for the Amazing Grace Initiative.Newtown was a slave master whose boat shipwrecked on the shores of Lough Swilly only to receive a welcome by the local people whom he said saved his life. He denounced his previous life, became a cleric and then wrote the hymn ‘Amazing Grace.’Friends and family members of Kieran have continued his work with the Amazing Grace Initiative in his honour.There are currently plans to carry out a feasibility study to build a bridge between the local park and the shorefront in Buncrana.Although it is very early days yet, the plans will hopefully culminate in the construction of the Kieran Henderson Bridge.Kieran is already remembered with a bench in his honour locally with his favourite quote engraved on it – “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” Kieran’s wife Marie said she was just overcome with the outpouring of goodness and generosity show towards Kieran’s memory.“It was such a lovely morning and we will remember it forever,” she said.Ruth Garvey-Williams of the Amazing Grace Initiative said the group will continue to honour Kieran and his dream of attracting more and more people to Buncrana through the initiative.“Kieran was a very special man, a very modest man who did so much work for his area but who refused to take any credit. “It’s great to see so many people here today remembering Kieran’s life and how much he did for Buncrana through the Amazing Grace Initiative. The sheer number of people here today reflects how loved Kieran was by his family and friends,” she said.General Manager of Druva CloudRanger David Gildea thanked all those who came along and said Kieran was a very special member of staff who was deeply missed by all his colleagues.A cheque for €1,000 was presented to the Amazing Grace Initiative by the company and a further €1,000 was raised during the coffee morning.The money will go directly into the plans to have a Kieran Henderson Bridge in Buncrana someday so that Kieran’s memory and gentle life will be remembered by others for generations to come.‘Amazing’ Kieran’s life celebrated by family and friends was last modified: June 3rd, 2019 by StephenShare 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:Amazing GraceCloudRangerKieran Hendersonlast_img read more

first_imgAODH RUADH GAA NEWS:FootballAodh Ruadh sustained their first defeat of the season in the compact confines of Crampsey Park in Inishowen last Saturday. Urris got off to the ideal start with a goal two minutes in, but that was to be their only score of the half and Aodh Ruadh reeled off five unanswered points to go into the break with a two point advantage. Urris came out strong in the second half hitting six unanswered points, before a Peter Boyle free staunched the flow. The closing stages were more evenly fought, but the homesters still emerged the victors winning on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-9. We have a full report with pictures to come from the game up on aodhruadh.org. The reserves also came unstuck against Urris, coming out on the wrong side of a 4-12 to 0-14 scoreline. It was a topsy turvy game, where Urris made the utmost of two spells of dominance to run out winners. The hosts lead by 0-7 to 0-5 at half time, but Aodh Ruadh came out with renewed vigour and streaked into a three points lead before being hauled back in the latter stages of the game. It was a bitterly disappointing end to a tightly contested game. Best for Aodh Ruadh was Mickey McNeely and the returning duo of Darren Gettins and Christopher Goan. We have a full match report with pictures to come from the game up on aodhruadh.org.As Donegal have qualified for the NFL Division One semi-final the CCC have brought forward a round of starred fixtures to allow the All-county league go ahead. This sees Aodh Ruadh back on the road to Inishowen, this time to Newtowncunningham on Saturday where they’ll face Naomh Colmcille. Throw-in times weren’t available at time of mailingThe minors lost their rescheduled game against Naomh Conaill 3-9 to 0-11. The minor league campaign came to an end on Sunday when they faced Naomh Conaill in Glenties. The Aodh Ruadh men started well with everyone putting in a huge performance in the first half with some great work from Philip Patton, Shane McGrath and Connor Kennedy up front. However they suffered a huge blow when Callum ‘Cookie’ O’Halloran, who was outstanding, got a black card in the dying minutes of the first half. The half time score saw the Ballyshannon men with a three point lead, 0-8 to 0-5, and all to play for. They came out strong again in the second half with another point straight from the throw in but with 45 minutes gone in the game the tables turned with a goal from a quick Naomh Conaill free. From this point on the Aodh Ruadh men just ran out of steam and despite the best efforts of Eugene Drummond, Colm Doyle and Conal Sweeney the Glenties men managed to poke holes in the Ballyshannon defence hitting the back of the net twice more within the space of three minutes. The full time whistle saw Naomh Conaill with a seven point advantage, 3-9 to 0-11 a disappointing end to the game after such a promising first 45 minutes.The under 16s had a good win over Dungloe on Friday finishing ahead by two points despite conceding a penalty in the last few minutes. Dungloe took their time to settle and Aodh Ruadh got off to a good start. They had a well taken goal by Odhrán O’Neill and four points on the board while Dungloe had only registered a single point. There were great performances all round the field particularly from Odhrán Kennedy, Sean Taylor, Michael McKenna and Ronan McMullin who did a great job in defence. Matteo Rivenna got off to a flying start in midfield where he was involved in the build up to a few scores and got a nice point of his own. His midfield partner Conall Sweeny worked hard, running at the Dungloe defence and contributing three points. Up front Dylan Gallagher gave a class performance in tracking back and helping out in defence while pushing forward when the chances came. Dylan’s superb goal effort came off the post at a time when Dungloe could have been finished off, but to their credit they kept going until the end. Conor O’Donnell, Jack Greene and Matthew Rodgers were probably best for Dungloe. Shane Dorrian’s confidence in free-taking is growing and he nailed an important score as the game came to a close. This Dungloe team beat this Aodh Ruadh team twice at under 14 level by 11 points and 13 points so the achievement on Friday is something the team should be proud of. The final score was 1-13 to 1-11. Our next game is away to Naomh Mhuire on Sunday.Under 14 training this Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm and Saturday from 11am to 12 noon. The under 14s will have a challenge match this Friday, 10th April against Naomh Bríd at 5pm. All players to be on the pitch for 4.30pm. The team’s first league fixture will be on Saturday, 25th April when they travel to take on Dungloe in the league.Under 10 and under 12 training continues on Wednesdays from 6pm to 7pm and Mondays from 6pm to 7pm.Under 8 and under 6 training recommences this Friday, 10th April, running from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh (Munday’s Field).Hurling The senior hurlers recorded their second win of the season on Monday evening against Saint Eunan’s in a sun-drenched O’Donnell Park. The Ernesiders were slow to start and the home side were three points to the good within the first five minutes. Aodh Ruadh eventually found their rhythm and slowly clawed their way back into the game picking off scores, eventually going in at half time with a five point cushion, 0-8 to 0-3. The second half started in much the same vein as the first, with Saint Eunan’s quickest out of the blocks. With the aid of a stiff breeze they had erased Aodh Ruadh’s lead within five minutes of the restart. Aodh Ruadh dug deep again and with Jack Matthews and Ciaran Kilgannon leading the charge from midfield the Ballyshannon men found their feet and slowly gained the upper hand. In contrast to their previous game against Setanta, Aodh Ruadh had nine players on the score sheet, with Eddie Lynch (0-4) and Paul Teague (0-3) doing their bit in the forward line. This was a much improved team performance from the Ballyshannon men with Barry Farragher, Diarmuid Gillespie and Darragh Cleary all making an impact on the game when they were introduced in the second half. Aodh Ruadh held their nerve to the end and won on a scoreline of 0-14 to 0-11. The senior hurlers are out again next Sunday in Strabane where they take on Strabane Shamrocks.Last Thursday night was a busy night for underage hurling. The minors made the long trip to Burt to take on the famed home team. We travelled with the bare 15 due to injuries and players not making themselves available, but the 15 that travelled certainly gave it their all and were a credit to the club. We started the game well and were seven points up coming towards half-time when the Burt men hit for a brace of goals. The second half was a ding dong battle with both teams going hard at it. Burt fought back and levelled the game, Aodh Ruadh went a point up and despite the best efforts of the Inishowen men we held out for a great victory on a 2-10 to 3-6 scoreline. As any hurling fan knows anytime you claim a victory in Burt is a great achievement. The lads last Thursday showed tremendous character to clinch victory in this great game where both teams gave it everything. The lads are on the road again this Thursday as they make the long trip to Carndonagh to take on the home team.On the same night in Father Tierney Park, the under 14s started their league campaign with a game against Burt, this team have put in a great effort at training over the last month. They started this game in a whirlwind fashion scoring a goal with the first attack of the game. The game was nip and tuck throughout the first half and both sides were level at half-time. The Burt lads ability to take their scores was the difference between the teams as they ran out winners 4-3 to 2-4. It was an encouraging start for the lads. Only a couple of months ago it looked like we wouldn’t be able to field at this age group but through their hard work and perseverance we now have a panel of 18 players. The under 14s have a busy week ahead as they travel to Ballybofey to play MacCumhaill’s and on Thursday they are at home to Carndonagh.On Saturday Donegal finished their division one Ulster League campaign with a disappointing defeat in Letterkenny against Armagh. Donegal were by far the better team but they hit too many wides and there was also some very poor decision making by the home team. Two of our minors started and did very well, Brendan Gillespie was corner back and had a great game with some very tenacious tackling. Oisín Rooney was centre forward and his strong running caused Armagh a lot of problems. He also got on the score board with a brace of points from play. Stephen Connolly and Adam Brennan were also part of the match day squad. Unfortunately Donegal were on the wrong end of the 4-6 to 3-7 scoreline. Donegal are back in action in the Ulster Championship on Saturday, 30th May when they take on Derry.

first_imgDONEGAL’S up and coming young talent put on a powerful second half display to see off the students of St Mary’s in the Dr McKenna Cup.There were senior debuts for Eoin McHugh and John O’Malley as Jim McGuinness continued his search for new stars for the All-Ireland winning squad in front of a spark crowd in Ballybofey.And O’Malley pointed on his debut, with Odhran MacNiallas grabbing a goal in the early stages of the first half. Just as the Donegal lads began to pull away, St Mary’s were awarded a penalty for a foul in the box which Brendan Herron netted.And it was the students who went in at the break ahead, leading 2-05 to to 1-07, a point to the good, with a second goal from Ronan Sexton.It was point for point in the second half with the teams square at one stage.MacNiallas was withdrawn but Donegal started to pull away in the final quarter, hitting five points in a row to lead 1-12 to 2-07. But the students weren’t finished and hit back again, squaring the game.St Mary’s had several attempts at goal when they should have taken their points – and had a penalty claim dismissed before they went a point into the lead.Ross Wherrity pointed for Donegal with five minutes to go before Conor Gibbons hit a great score to put the home side ahead in the game 1-14 to 2-10.The scoreboard had it as a draw….but for once it was wrong!Scorers for Donegal: O MacNiallais (1-3), J O’Malley (0-4, 3f), L Keaney (0-2), C Gibbons (0-2, 1f), P Mailey, S McGarvey, R Wherity (0-1) St Mary’s scorers: B Herron (1-5, 2f), R Sexton (1-2, 1f), B Hasson, L Doyle, S O’Neill (0-1)DONEGAL: P Boyle; P Carr, C Ward, A O’Gara; E McHugh, K McFadden, Cannon; L Keaney, C Cannon; P Mailey, J Carroll, M Cannon; O MacNiallais, R Wherity, J O’Malley.
