Throughout his intervention within the particular radio program that Cope and Onda Cero broadcast on Wednesday night time, Rafa Nadal spoke in regards to the tennis season, stopped in March after the tournaments in Acapulco, the place the Balearic Islands received, and Dubai, the place Djokovic triumphed. And his opinion was fascinating: “I wouldn’t guess on a Grand Slam with out an viewers. The League and the Champions are made in a single nation and on the identical continent, and the season might finish. However tennis is international, from nation to nation, week after week. The displacements and the group entail mobilizing lots of people with not that that entails in danger stage. We will need to have accountability. ““It appears tough to me that there might be an official match within the brief or medium time period,” continued the Balearic. “You must take into consideration the final good of our sport and belief that issues are solved. However the very first thing is to beat the tragedy we’re experiencing after which we will see how we return to the whole lot. “Then Nadal clarified his explanations: “I didn’t say that I are not looking for tennis behind closed doorways, I have mentioned that I see it tough to renew, but when it might be resumed behind closed doorways, I would be delighted.” On this matter, Djokovic additionally opined: “It relies upon. It is not a simple choice to play with out an viewers. What there is now is past our sport. I am in Spain and able to play, however it will be within the coming months”, mentioned the Serbian, implying that it will not be unreasonable for him to play a match in our nation. Each have been involved in current days with one another and with the Gamers Council chaired by Djokovic. “This final week we now have been speaking for hours and hours within the Council and amongst ourselves in order that our sport can get forward. We will’t determine something, however in our place, being one of many 100 finest on the earth, we will consider methods to assist ATP gamers and employees to outlive. “

Golden Veroleum Liberia has donated drums of crude palm oil to the company’s host communities, which followed the dedication on 19 April of a mini mill in Tarjuowon District in Sinoe County.Six large drums of fresh palm oil were distributed in Tarjuowon District to Butaw, Numopoh, Tartweh, Nitrain, Du Wolie Nyennue and Sorbor in Dugbe River. Presenting the oil to the communities, GVL General Manager for sustainability Mr. Flomo Molubah said GVL respects the rights, traditions and culture of local communities. He said this is the first step to GVL meeting its aspirations to producing high quality palm oil from Sinoe and Grand Kru for use and sale locally and for export. He later thanked the communities for the support.Mr. Molubah urged the communities to invite all members of the communities to sample the oil. He said, “Although it is not much to share at the moment, it gives all community members an opportunity to share GVL’s joy by tasting our first production.” The oil comes from the fruits of palm trees planted in Butaw District and Numopoh. A special service was held in Butaw before the mill was dedicated.For his part, the superintendent of Tarjuowon Statutory District, Paul Chea, lauded the management of Golden Veroleum for its commitment and for remembering the people of Tarjuowon. He said GVL has proven to be a true partner by distributing the first oil produced from its mill among its host communities. “GVL has proven to be committed to us. By distributing the first oil from the mill, GVL is showing that it really loves us and we believe that more will come.”Chea said the presence of GVL has brought a significant change to his district, and Sinoe at large. He named the construction and rehabilitation of roads, bridges, hand pumps and schools as some of the social benefits communities are getting from GVL. He said the rehabilitation, opening of new roads/construction of roads, will improve the flow of goods and services to and from the county capital Greenville and other surrounding communities. He said, “Before GVL, we had decades of inaccessibility for residents and commuters due to road damage caused by heavy downpours in the rainy season. Now we have much more reliable road links.” Speaking on behalf of Du- Wolie Township, Commissioner Ramsey Snoh thanked GVL Management for the recognition of their community. He said, “GVL is yet to move in our Township, but the fact that the company has recognized the people of Du Wolie and Nyennue means that the company is committed to working with its host communities and improving their livelihood.” He pledged that he will distribute the oil equally among members of the community. He urged the citizens of Du – Wolie – Nyennue to act fast in signing the MOU that will bring more development and employment to the community. “We need to act very fast to sign this MOU so that more development and employment will come to our people. Your palm oil is good and we want it to be planted here as well,” he concluded. Golden Veroleum Liberia commissioned its first mini mill in Sinoe in April 2016 with an operating capacity of 5 tons per hour. The company plans to complete its main mill construction in the first half of 2017, with an eventual capacity of 80 tons per hour. The projects are fulfilling GVL’s commitment to bringing major investments in factories and industries to the Liberian Southeast. When completed, the main mill will bring additional employment for at least 150 Liberian staff and professionals, a press release said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

0Shares0000Croatia’s clash with England on Friday will be played behind closed doors after a swastika was marked onto the pitch for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy © AFP / ANDREJ ISAKOVICRIJEKA, Croatia, Oct 10 – Croatia’s first fixture back on home soil after reaching the World Cup final should be a homecoming for heroes who defied the odds to carry a nation of just four million to the biggest game in football.Instead, not one fan will be allowed in to see their country’s World Cup semi-final rematch with England at an 8,000 capacity stadium in Rijeka for a Nations League clash on Friday. The hosts are completing a UEFA sanction to play two games behind closed doors after a swastika symbol was carved into the pitch during a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy in June 2015.“It is not fair because we will play against England, two World Cup semi-finalists, and we must play without fans,” Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic told AFP.“I know UEFA punished us but it is not right to play without fans.“We have to accept it and try to do the best we can from our side.”Just three months on from the highs of Russia, the sight of two of the final four playing a competitive match in front of empty stands is just the latest example of the clash between Croatia’s ability to develop world class players and the structural and cultural problems it faces off the field.The Italy match where the swastika appeared was also held behind closed doors as a punishment for racist chanting against Norway in an earlier qualifier.At Euro 2016 a match with the Czech Republic had to be halted as flares rained down on the pitch from Croatian fans as a protest against their own football association.– Dark side to a fairytale –Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was crowned as FIFA’s player of the year last month for leading his country to the World Cup final © AFP / Ben STANSALL“Croatia is a football phenomenon, a miracle on the field of play, but there are issues to be solved,” said UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.“The key problems in Croatia are hooligan-related incidents that can lead to drastic measures, and relatively poor infrastructure, compared to similar countries.”Yet, even those revered on the field have been embroiled in controversy.FIFA’s recently crowned player of the year Luka Modric was castigated by fans in the build-up to the World Cup for his role in the case that saw former Dinamo Zagreb chief executive Zdravko Mamic, still seen by many as the strongman of Croatian football, sentenced to a six-and-a-half year jail term for corruption and embezzling funds from the transfers of players.Modric was even accused of perjury, but will not face prosecution according to a report last week.That darker side of Croatia’s football fairytale also reared its head in the days after the World Cup final when the players invited a singer known for pro-Nazi sympathies to join them on stage at their welcoming party in Zagreb.Croatia were given a hero’s welcome in a parade on their return to Zagreb after the World Cup © AFP / Andrej ISAKOVICThe joy as 100,000 fans greeted the team back from Russia in July on a open-top bus parade through the capital contrasts sharply with the soullessness of the empty stadium that will greet them on Friday night.Croatia also suffered a hangover on the field against Spain last month to already leave Dalic more focused on Euro 2020 than another attempt at glory in the Nations League.“We lost the first game 6-0 against Spain! We have to improve and play a good game but it is not easy to play against England without fans,” he added.“Our target is the Euro 2020. I know now we have the Nations League but now we are tired and gave everything we had in the World Cup. Now we need time for a fresh start.”A similar reset is needed off the field to let Croatia’s stars shine without being shrouded in controversy.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Joe Gomez faces a spell on the sidelines after the England defender was carried off early in the 3-1 win at Turf Moor, which cut Manchester City’s advantage at the top to two points.Gomez will have scans on an injured left ankle following a full-blooded challenge from defender Ben Mee.“Burnley had a specific plan to be really aggressive and really physical,” said Liverpool’s German boss.“Joe is injured, and probably not only a little bit. We have to see what he’s like. We don’t know at the moment and we have to see tomorrow. It’s his ankle.”Burnley manager Sean Dyche made no apologies for his side’s approach as the hosts picked up just one yellow card, but Klopp added: “I’m pretty sure saying this won’t make me a lot of friends here, but that’s not the job I have.“I said (to the officials) after the first challenge, I don’t know who did it, but it was like a sliding challenge where the player came in from six or seven yards and gets the ball. Everybody likes it but I said to them ‘please, tell them they can’t do that’.“The referees have to make sure it doesn’t happen. You get the ball, nice, but then, boom, you get the player as well.– Klopp warning –“It’s like (10-pin) bowling and that’s exactly what happened four or five times. It was no foul but you have to be careful if you’re going in at full speed. I told the ref he needed to calm it down because the danger of injury is always there and we had to make a substitution of an really important player for us.“You can be aggressive, that’s OK and it’s part of football. Just be careful. Sliding six or seven yards to win the ball, these times are over and somebody needs to tell you to stop doing it.”Klopp’s decision to make seven changes from the Merseyside derby victory over Everton almost backfired until goals from James Milner, substitute Roberto Firmino with his first touch, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed a comeback win after Jack Cork had given the hosts the lead early in the second-half.Burnley are only kept off the bottom of the table on goal difference after taking two points from the past 24.Following his 300th game in management, Dyche played-down suggestions of a spat with Klopp at the final whistle, insisting: “I just said to him ‘well done’. That was it. The reaction from our supporters at the end showed me they are still very much with us and that display was more like the standards we know we’re capable of.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino (pictured December 2, 2018) helped his team make a comeback at Burnley after the hosts took an unexpected lead © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFBURNLEY, United Kingdom, Dec 6 – Jurgen Klopp hit out at Burnley’s physical approach as Liverpool were left with a major injury worry after battling back from a goal down to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season on Wednesday.A 12th win means second-placed Liverpool have made their best-ever start to a top-flight season after 15 games but Klopp revealed his plea to match officials to protect his players from a series of robust sliding challenges from the Clarets was largely ignored.
0Shares0000Gerard Pique said he would have accepted less money this season to allow Barcelona to re-sign Neymar. But the Brazilian stayed at Paris Saint-Germain © AFP/File / LLUIS GENEMADRID, Spain, Oct 31 – Gerard Pique has said Barcelona’s players offered to alter their own contracts to help the club buy Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.Barca attempted to re-sign Neymar, sold to PSG for a world record 222 million euros ($249 million) in 2017, but the two teams were unable to agree a deal. Key players, including Lionel Messi, were eager for the Brazilian to return and Pique says they tried to help the club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, complete the transfer while satisfying UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.“What we proposed to the president was that we could tweak our contracts because we knew there was an issue with Fair Play,” Pique told Cadena Ser on Wednesday night.“Instead of getting paid what we were owed for that year, we could transfer it to the second, third of fourth year so Ney could come.“Ultimately we wanted to support the club and if we could help in some way, we had no problem with that.”Neymar earns 38 million euros a year at PSG and the financial implications of signing the 27-year-old would be huge.“We told him, ‘you live in a golden prison’,” Pique added. “But in football anything can happen and the door is open.”Pique also said the postponement of last Saturday’s Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid was unnecessary.The fixture has been rescheduled for December 18 after violent protests broke out last week in Catalonia, following the imprisonment of nine pro-independence leaders.“My opinion is the postponement was unnecessary,” said Pique. “Common sense says that in Spanish stadiums there has not been any violence. We are civilised people.“That same weekend the Espanyol-Villarreal game was played and nothing happened. And why isn’t something going to happen on December 18 if it was going to happen before? The situation will be similar.“It was magnifying a problem that wasn’t a problem in the first place.”Pique is also the founder of Kosmos, the investment group leading the revamp of tennis’ Davis Cup, which begins in its new format in Madrid on November 18.The 32-year-old said the plan is for the new one-week competition with 18 teams to expand to two weeks and 24 teams, although Roger Federer has expressed scepticism about the changes.Asked if he would mind Roger Federer changing football, Pique said: “Not at all.”Pique added: “We sent him a letter and were surprised by his statements. They see the Davis Cup as competing with the tournament he has.”0Shares0000(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today)
Ian Rush believes that Wales can continue their fine form at Euro 2016.Chris Coleman’s side secured qualification with an emphatic 3-0 win over Russia on Monday night in Toulouse, which saw them pip England to top spot of Group B in the process.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Liverpool and Wales legend challenged his countrymen to emulate the success of Leicester City, who defied odds of 5,000/1 to win the Premier League.When asked if the Dragons could reach the final four of the tournament, Rush said: “It would be a dream come true really!“I thought they were fantastic last night and the supporters were superb.“You talk about Leicester City and you never know. For me, what we’ve done now has been fantastic and let’s just take it from here.”
