Goalkeeper Josep Martínez is sold to Red Bull Leipzig

first_imgThe RassenBallspor Leipzig, company-owned equipment Red bull and current leader of the Bundesliga, has formalized the hiring of one of the young pearls of the yellow quarry, the quarry goal Josep Martínez. The Valencian goalkeeper, who arrived from La Masía, managed to gain a foothold last year after Raúl’s injury and the erratic actions of his substitute, Nauzet Pérez, made him catch the title and not release it until this course, where an error before the Alcorcón took him in the break of the initial eleven in favor of Alvaro Álvaro Valles.At Christmas he raised his voice in the absence of minutes and communicated to the club his intention to hear offers, arriving several, but the Leipzig being the one that most interested the parties. This Tuesday the operation will be crystallized that will report two and a half million to the Gran Canaria entity, that seeing his null intention to renew, since his contract will end next year, he decided to accept the offer that will keep him on loan on the island until the end of this season to the U21 international for Spain.last_img read more

Yaya says sorry

first_imgLONDON, England (AP): Seeking to mend his relationship with manager Pep Guardiola, Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure apologised yesterday for outbursts by his agent. A statement of contrition was demanded two months ago by Guardiola before Toure would be considered for selection again. But it’s still not clear if the four-time African Player of the Year will play again for City. “I wish to apologise – on behalf of myself and those who represent me – to the management team and all those working at the club for the misunderstandings from the past,” Toure wrote on Facebook. “Those statements do not represent my views on the club or the people who work there.” While Guardiola was receptive to Toure’s statement, the midfielder’s representative, Dimitri Seluk, had other ideas. Seluk infuriated Guardiola in September by accusing the manager of humiliating Toure by leaving him out of City’s Champions League squad. “Maybe Toure has apologised. But I don’t know for what. I think Yaya (doesn’t) mean this,” Seluk said yesterday in an interview with Talk Sport radio shortly after the 33-year-old Toure published his statement. Still, Guardiola cautiously welcomed yesterday’s apology. “We spoke this morning and, of course, it’s private,” Guardiola said. “I read what he wrote and that’s all. Of course it is good news for Manchester City. “Yaya is in all meetings and all our training sessions,” Guardiola said, shedding little light on Toure’s playing future. Toure struggled for form last season and could have trouble adapting to Guardiola’s high-energy pressing game. “I have nothing but respect for Manchester City and only wish the best for the football club,” Toure said in his apology. “I am immensely proud to have played a part in the club’s history and want to help City succeed further. I live to play football and entertain the fans.”last_img read more

NEC Sets July 2 for Sen., Rep. By-Elections

first_imgNEC Chair Jerome Kokoya-Submits US$2.5M budget to governmentAuthorities at the National Elections Commission (NEC) are yet to receive official notification from the Speaker of the House of Representatives about the vacancy created by the sudden passing of Representative Adolph Lawrence in a tragic motor accident on the Monrovia-Roberts Field Highway on the night of Sunday, March 24, 2019.According to the sources, the NEC had previously set July 2, 2019 as the date for the holding of by-elections to fill the vacancy in the Senate created by the death of Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff. But the Commission now finds itself in a quandary, hoping that by-elections for the two seats, one a District seat and the other a County seat, could be held on the same date.According to NEC, the decision to hold the by-elections is in consonance with Article 37 of the 1986 Revised Constitution, which states: “In the event of a vacancy in the Legislature caused by death, resignation, expulsion, or otherwise, the presiding officer shall within 30 days notify the elections commission thereof. The Commission shall not later than 90 days thereafter, cause a by-election to be held; provided that where such vacancy occurs within 90 days prior to the holding of general elections, the filling of the vacancy shall await the holding of such general elections.It is against this background, according to sources, that the NEC, hoping that the Speaker of the House of Representatives will, in short order, notify it of the vacancy in the House for Montserrado District #15, has tentatively prepared a budget of US$2.5 million for both the senatorial and representative by-elections, and have since submitted it to the government.Additionally, the Commission through its election steering committee chaired by Commissioner Jonathan K. Weedor, has developed a timeline for the conduct of the two by-elections and a steering committee has been set up, pending receipt of the official communication from the Legislature.Further, according to Korkoya, the steering committee will be responsible to recruit temporary staff for the exercise and provide adequate supervision before, during and after the July 2 polls.About the key dates to the by-elections, Kokoya said the issuance of the writ of election will be done on May 3, 2019, while the accreditation of party agents, media and observers for the exercises will be carried out from May 3 to June 25, 2019.“On May 6, the by-election regulations and guidelines will be published, while the nomination of candidates to contest will be done from May 6 to the 18, 2019,” he announced.He said the civic voter education will be launched on May 10, while the notification to candidates for their acceptance or rejection will be carried out on May 19, 2019.“The publication of provisional list of candidates will be done on May 19, and the replacement of lost and damaged voter registration (VR) cards will be done from the May 20 to 25, 2019,” Kokoya added.He said the last day for decision on objections and claims, last day for candidates to appeal against rejection will be done on May 27 and 27 respectively. He pointed out that on June 4, the final listing of candidates will be published, while political campaign will run from June 4 to 30.On July 2 is the by-elections day. Complaints from the by-elections will be heard as of the day of election, July 2 to 9, while the announcement of provisional results will begin on the July 4; and the announcement of results will be made on July 10, 2019.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Chelsea transfer report: Blues preparing £53m bid for in-demand Napoli defender

first_img1 Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly Chelsea are poised to make a bid in the region of £53m to try and lure Napoli into selling defender Kalidou Koulibaly.The 25-year-old was linked heavily with a move to Stamford Bridge last summer and Napoli were forced to reject two offers from the Blues in order to keep hold of the Senegal international.Koulibaly has enjoyed another fine season at the heart of the Napoli defence and it seems Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is ready to launch a fresh assault to land him.According to Corriere dello Sport, the Premier League champions are ready to set aside £53m in order to bring the defender to England.The Italian giants are keen to retain their best players but club president Aurelio De Laurentiis could have his head turned by Chelsea’s latest advances.Koulibaly racked up 38 appearances for Napoli last season and has a contract until 2021 with the Italian giants.last_img read more

Half-time: FC Groningen 1 QPR 0

first_imgJoel Lynch was included in the starting line-up for QPR’s pre-season friendly against FC Groningen in the Netherlands, where the Dutch side lead at half-time.Summer signing Lynch, who did not feature in Friday’s game against PSV Eindhoven, lined up in a back four which also included young full-backs Darnell Furlong and Cole Kpekawa.Juninho Bacuna opened the scoring on 13 minutes when he slotted home the loose ball after keeper Matt Ingram did well to deny Tom van Weert, who had managed to sneak behind Steven Caulker.Rangers, demonstrating a pressing, high-tempo style boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been keen to introduce, have created some openings.But Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Tjaronn Chery were both unable to find a way past the goalkeeper after finding themselves through on goal.Rangers midfielder Chery, playing against his former side, then teed up Michael Petrasso with a clever pass and the winger fired low into the net but was offside.Petrasso picked up a knock and went off five minutes before the break.QPR: Ingram; Furlong, Caulker, Lynch, Kpekawa; Henry, Doughty; Petrasso (Kakay 40), Chery, El Khayati; Emmanuel-Thomas.Subs: Lumley, Onuoha, Hall, Polter, Borysiuk, Gladwin, Grego-Cox, Bidwell, Luongo, Prohouly, Shodipo.See also:The QPR youngsters trying to make their mark during pre-seasonFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
