The Inter staff, ready to give up their salaries

first_imgThe details of the cuts will be decided when it becomes clearer whether the competitions for this course will resume or not.o: Most likely, the footballers will give up the salaries of March, April, May and June as those of the Vecchia Signora did, leaving open the possibility of renegotiating if they finally return to green. While the Serie A clubs are looking for a common path (and the meeting by teleconference with the Association of Footballers postponed yesterday should take place today), Inter would be close to imitating the example of Juventus and cutting the salaries of its footballers. According to the agency ‘ANSA’, both coach Antonio Conte and his players would have given the go-ahead to forgo their payments after a few days of contacts with the Nerazzur management.last_img read more

Gold medallist Hamilton shoulders heavy burden for KC

first_imgKingston College’s Yashawn Hamilton was always confident he would be on the medal podium for the long jump Class Two event this year.Hamilton, a second year Class Two athlete, had to contest to 200 metres preliminaries at the same time he was competing in the long jump final. He will also be participate in the 100 metres.However, the youngster, who won the event with a leap of 7.01 metres ahead of Excelsior High’s Joel Morgan and Calabar High’s Kristoffe Clifford, said he has to be mentally strong to perform and deliver the points he is expected to contribute to his school, who are depending heavily on his points to reclaim the Champs trophy.”I wasn’t surprised I won. I know I was a finalist last year so I just came out, did my best and ensure that I was on the medal podium,” he said. “But I have to be mentally strong because I have a lot of events, so I didn’t get to do the rest of my jumps. I don’t know what would happen after those jumps because I had the 200 just after the third round (long jump).”I have the 100 metres too, so I carry a lot of points for my team and I have to ensure that we win the Champs. I was expected to come third (long jump), but I went out and did my best and got gold. I was looking at 7.3 the least, so the jump wasn’t my best, but I listened to my coach and did my best,” he added.last_img read more

‘We lost our minds’ – Liverpool manager reacts to thumping at Watfo

first_imgLONDON (AP): Liverpool slumped to a 3-0 defeat at Watford in the Premier League yesterday, while managerless Swansea drew 0-0 at home to West Ham at the Liberty Stadium. Liverpool now trail the Champions League places by five points after their latest loss, while Swansea stayed in the relegation zone after taking a point. Watford took the lead at Vicarage Road after only three minutes. Nathan Ake poking in after stand-in Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, replacing the injured Simon Mignolet, dropped a corner. Odion Ighalo then netted twice, with a composed finish in the 15th, before heading in unmarked in the 85th as Liverpool were punished for a stagnant and unimaginative performance. Manager Jurgen Klopp felt his side’s reaction to conceding early contributed to the rest of their display. “We lost our minds after the first goal; we lost our compact formation,” Klopp said. “The reaction has to be better. We came here to do something really different than what you saw. Hopefully, it is the most disappointing moment in my whole Liverpool FC life from now on.” NO WORRY FOR WATFORD Liverpool failed to offer anything in attack that worried Watford, which played at a higher tempo and with more attacking intent throughout the encounter. The victory is their fourth in a row in the Premier League and leaves them only a point behind Tottenham in fourth, on 28. “We are fighting a lot; we are very competitive,” Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores said. “I feel completely happy with the performance and the players. We are playing against amazing teams, but we control the matches.” In Wales, Swansea missed some good chances in the first half against West Ham as theyfailed to claim the victory that would have lifted them out of the relegation zone. Andre Ayew, Ki Sung-yueng and Jack Cork failed to convert opportunities as Swansea stayed in the bottom three, two points adrift of safety. West Ham substitute Enner Valencia almost won it for the visitors late on, but his strike was tipped over the bar by Lukasz Fabianski as Slaven Bilic’s side settled for their third straight goalless draw. Swansea caretaker manager Alan Curtis challenged his team to be more ruthless in attack. “We can all see that we are lacking a cutting edge,” Curtis said. “At least we looked like a Swansea City team again, but we need to find something in the final third.”last_img read more

Exclusive – ‘Rooney isn’t a midfielder,’ Man United legend tells Van Gaal

first_imgWayne Rooney’s best position is as a striker – not a midfielder, insists Gary Neville.The Manchester United star has been playing in a deeper role in recent weeks under Louis van Gaal, but as a result his form has dipped.And with the England international returning to his usual role further forward against Swansea City, his former team-mate insisted that is where Rooney should remain.“I don’t think midfield is Wayne Rooney’s best position,” United legend Neville told Drivetime.“I think what happened at Man United earlier on in the season was he was put there out of necessity because of injuries and he’s ended up staying there.“Now he seems to have gone back [to being a forward] and I certainly think he’s better up top.”last_img read more

Elections 2014: Mthethwa warns would-be ‘disrupters’

first_img25 April 2014 With South Africa’s 7 May general elections less than two weeks away, the country’s law enforcement agencies are set to increase their presence in a number of communities to ensure that there are no such thing as “no-go areas” in the lead-up to the polls. Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and several other ministers from the government’s justice, crime prevention and security cluster visited a number of so-called “hot-spots” in Cape Town on Wednesday to assess their readiness for the election. “We are sending a warning to would-be disruptors that we are not going to be friendly to them when they disrupt a very important national duty,” Mthethwa said. The 7 May poll will be South Africa’s fifth general election since 1994 and will be symbolic in many respects, as it coincides with the country’s 20 Years of Freedom celebrations. Mthetwa said the government would ensure that South Africa’s citizens were able to exercise their democratic right to vote in a peaceful, free and fair environment. “We have come a long way as country. We will not allow a few individuals to disrupt us from ensuring that these elections are free of any violence of any kind.” After a meeting with the Western Cape’s police leadership on Wednesday, the minister said he was pleased with the province’s readiness for the elections. “I am satisfied that when the day comes, we are going to have a successful election free of any conflict and it will be free and fair. I am satisfied with the readiness of our personnel on the ground.” Mthetwa’s delegation made stops at the townships of Khayelitsha, Manenberg, Phillipi and Tafelsig, where informal discussions were held with residents and community leaders. The ministers also spoke to people on the streets regarding their concerns about crime, gangsterism and drug abuse. Residents in all the visited areas included crime, drug abuse and gangsterism on their list of concerns. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
