first_imgThe Osasuna Athletic Club does not plan to carry out a Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE) with its staff, according to its general director, Fran Canal, who also assured that “no team” in the professional league is weighing it as a measure to alleviate the economic effects of the Covid-19. In statements to Efe, Canal commented that, if this regulation is carried out, all professional clubs must make a “global employer-union agreement” to take the decision to decree “an exceptional measure.” “Probably, in case of not finishing the season, an agreement would have to be reached together with all the clubs,” said the Rojillo director about the remote possibility of making the temporary decision in case the season ended with 28 days played. For Canal, the fault that the players have to train at home is not from the athletes or the institution they represent, but rather “an exceptional circumstance that crosses the country”, for which they think that they should continue paying the wages since “the player is going to fulfill all the matches because you pay him per year, not for months.” “Not all legislation is the same,” Canal explained about the ERTE examples carried out in teams such as Olympique de Lyon and Montpellier de la Ligue 1., implying that this measure would not be beneficial for either party. What really worries the rojillo president is the economic activity of Osasuna, since the club “does not work” because stores and offices cannot open due to an “obvious” risk of contagion.last_img read more

first_imgPlans are afoot for the formation of the Jamaica Athletics Foundation, an organisation to raise funds for the development of track and field in Jamaica. This was revealed in an interview with Dr Warren Blake, the president of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) last week. The new entity will be reaching out to local corporate entities and Jamaicans overseas.Speaking at his JAAA office in Kingston, Blake said he worried about the possibility of dwindling corporate support after superstar sprinter Usain Bolt retires.”It is a concern because, as you know, Bolt himself pulls and attracts sponsorship to athletics, and people may say that when Bolt goes, there’s nothing in it for us,” he outlined, “so we have to convince our partners that it is worth their while to stay with us, that we’re running a good ship, that we can deliver the same brand alignment that we have done in the past.”The formation of the foundation is part of the JAAA’s response to that possibility.”It’s already a legal entity, the Jamaica Athletics Foundation, where we involve some top people locally and some members of the diaspora, and we have got some key people overseas involved”, he said optimistically.MONEY IS TIGHTHe doesn’t expect that the Sports Development Foundation (SDF) will be able to assist much after its efforts to install a new synthetic track at the G.C. Foster College for Physical Education. “Having been head of the SDF, I know the sort of cash flow they have”, he remarked, “and the money is really tight.”He is envisaging a foundation “where we can raise funds, both from corporate and a sort of crowd-funding venture, where members of the diaspora give a small amount each month”.He also revealed that his association has been able to avoid its customary year-end borrowing in 2016. “This is one of the first years in my memory since 2000 that we have not had to go to the bank to borrow to bridge that gap at this time of the year”, he recalled.To explain, he gave an insight into the JAAA cash flow that included a reference to the association’s major sponsor, German sportswear firm Puma. “The money from Puma, you know, comes in tranches and, usually, at this time of the year, we are facing a serious cash flow problem,” he reported. Blake said tighter management has enabled the association to avoid bank loans this year.last_img read more

first_imgPhoto from GoNepal.comThe draw against bottom team Nepal last Tuesday in Kathmandu cranked up the pressure on the Philippine Azkals, who are suddenly on a slump after a strong start to the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers.And while the Azkals are still on top of Group F with nine points and are still unbeaten in five matches, the fact remains that the squad has dropped six points in the last three games after two draws with Yemen and the goalless tie with Nepal.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparc “It’s disappointing,” said Araneta. “We have to talk to coach (Dooley) on what the team needs as we should have won that game. I don’t know what are the reasons for that but we can’t afford another bad result.”Araneta said he would also sit down with Azkals manager Dan Palami to discuss preparations for the next game, which will probably include a training camp, before the start of the PFL season.The nightmare scenario for the Azkals is a loss to Tajikistan and a win by Yemen over Nepal on March 27.

first_imgThe large protest crowd walks up the Port Road in Letterkenny.The Can’t Pay Won’t Pay have slammed Donegal Sinn Fin for ignoring their requests not to use political banners at last weekend’s Bin the Bills protest in Letterkenny.The group said the protest has shown that Donegal will have one of the highest levels of resistance to payment of water charges.But have also criticised Sinn Fein’s behaviour at the protest. Spokesperson Francis McCafferty said, “The big numbers of people who were prepared to get rid of their bills and the enthusiasm they showed, surpassed all our expectations. It looks like once again people in Donegal will be to the forefront is resisting charges. We also saw people take away thousands of our newsletters in bundles to distribute in their own commuities in an effort to get others not to pay also. The non payment message will certainly go out far and wide from this demonstration.”“The government have been trying to downplay recent protests by claiming that the protests are now much smaller than before, but we have just seen similar numbers to the last demonstration at the end of January. It’s clear that in Donegal at least there has been no let up in popular support for the campaign against the charges and that is the clear and unambiguous message we have sent to the government.”But the CPWP spokesman added that the only downside to Saturday’s demonstration is that our attempt to build unity between anti water charges groups was cut across by the antics of Sinn Fein.“They completely ignored our request not to carry party political banners or placards. While parties such as the IRSP, People Before Profit and others respected our decision, Sinn Fein was the only political party to display placards which they distributed in great numbers. In doing so they showed that their participation was more about promoting their own electoral interests, rather than simply supporting the people who had turned up to bin their bills.” “In an act of unity, we had a representative from Right2Water, in which Sinn Fein is the dominant force, speak at the protest. But we feel we had our goodwill thrown back in our faces by their behaviour. It was very disappointing and distracted from what was a people’s protest by a crude attempt to ‘brand’ it for one particular political party.”“It will disappoint many who want to see unity between different groups, but the reality is that there is only one part of the anti water charges movement which is out of step with everyone else in refusing to back the boycott and that is Sinn Fein. There is complete unity amongst everyone else on the need for a strong boycott. The challenge now is for all groups supporting the boycott to find better ways to work together.” ‘CAN’T PAY WON’T PAY’ SLAM SINN FEIN FOR USING POLITICAL BANNERS AT PROTEST was last modified: April 30th, 2015 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:Can’t Pay Won’t PaydonegalprotestSinn Feinlast_img read more

first_img Ronald Koeman in action for Everton 1 Ronald Koeman says he is not confident Ross Barkley will stay at Everton and has begun the search for a midfield replacement.The 23-year-old has been offered a new long-term contract at Goodison Park, with his current one due to expire in 2018, but has so far declined to put pen-to-paper.Koeman last week warned Barkley he must commit to a new deal before the end of the season or will be sold this summer.The England international – reportedly wanted by Tottenham – has still not revealed his intentions, however.Asked on Friday if he was confident Barkley would stay, boss Koeman said: “No.“I spoke to the player, the board spoke to his agent. I don’t know if he won’t give an answer. I don’t know.”Koeman wants Barkley to stay – but insists it won’t be a disaster if he does go.“We will go on and we’re looking for players in that position. If he stays there will be more competition,” added the Dutchman.“I am not worried because I like to work with players who like to play.“If you offer a player a new contract, and a good contract, that means you want to keep the player.”Koeman also said he knew of no update in terms of Romelu Lukaku, the striker who in March told Everton he will not sign the contract extension on offer.Lukaku, currently on a deal that has just over two years left, has scored 24 league goals this season, which did have him in pole position for the golden boot until Tottenham’s Harry Kane netted four times at Leicester on Thursday to take his tally to 26.Koeman feels Lukaku must improve his game but has praised the 24-year-old Belgian for his scoring efforts, and notably suggested that while Everton “need to keep his goals”, they could also do with more players who in a season can contribute over five – the amount Barkley has netted in the league this term.Koeman said of Lukaku: “Even if he doesn’t win the golden boot, 24 goals is a good number.“He can improve – he knows that by himself. He is just 24 years old and he can improve, and needs to in several aspects, as a nine, as a target man – to keep the ball better, be stronger and do better pressing in front. But that is what we work on to improve.“What we need is to keep his goals and find more players to score more than four or five in one season.”last_img read more

first_img Fred will represent Brazil at this summer’s World Cup 1 Willian has backed Brazil team-mate Fred to be a major success at Manchester United and said he is moving to “one of the best teams in the world.”Midfielder Fred is set to join Jose Mourinho’s side for next season after a transfer in excess of £50million was agreed with Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.Chelsea forward Willian, who is currently on international duty with the 25-year-old ahead of the World Cup, believes he has a bright future and will make the grade in England.“Of course, no doubt, no doubt about that,” replied Willian when asked if Fred will thrive in the Premier League.“He has a lot of quality, he can improve a lot.“He goes to one of the best teams in the world and I’m happy for him.“I hope he does well at Manchester United.”In addition to their national team connections, the pair were both introduced to European football in Ukraine.Willian spent five-and-a-half years with Shakhtar before leaving in January 2013 for a short spell with Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala, while Fred arrived in Donetsk from Brazilian side Internacional five months later.Willian said he has given advice to Fred about playing in England but insists both men are fully focused on the World Cup ahead of their country’s final warm-up friendly against Austria on Sunday.“He’s very happy to come to the Premier League to play, we talked a little bit about that,” added Willian, who switched to Chelsea in the summer of 2013.“He’s excited to start but now it’s time to think about the World Cup and think about the national team.”Willian’s own future in club football appears to be in doubt amid speculation he wants to leave Stamford Bridge.He was voted players’ player of the year by his Blues team-mates and picked up the goal of the season award but was often used as a substitute by manager Antonio Conte.The 29-year-old, who has scored eight times in 55 international appearances, felt last season was a good one personally but was coy about his plans after the summer.“I was happy with my performance during the season, I played very well, I always try to do my best, always try to work hard and sometimes to stay on the bench is difficult but I respect the decision of the manager, always,” he said.“I don’t have any more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here with the national team on the World Cup.“I’m ready for it.”last_img read more

first_imgThis is the horrific mess left behind by beach-goers at Knockalla yesterday.The mess included new expensive coolers and even bedding clothing as thousands hit Donegal’s coastline with the welcome summer sun.The pillow cases had been stuffed with rubbish which included beer cans and food wrappers. A bonfire had also been lit on the beach and glass had been scattered all around.A Donegal Daily reader who came across the site said she was horrified by the state of the beach.“We love Knockalla but Donegal has so many lovely beaches.“I can’t understand how people could leave a place looking like this. Would they leave this mess in their front room? “I went to the beach with my family and I was ashamed to say I was Irish if this is what people treat their country like,” she fumed.The woman also revealed that nearby litter bins were also stuffed to overflowing and looked like they had not been emptied for days.“But that’s not an excuse for the people who left this mess behind them.“It would have been just as easy to take these bags of rubbish home with them or find a bin and dump it in it,” she said.  DISGUSTING – HOW BEACH-GOERS LEFT ONE DONEGAL BEAUTY SPOT was last modified: May 29th, 2012 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:binsKnockallarubbishlast_img read more
