Although Barça feel they are in a strong position to land the Brazilian, there’s a concern it might all count for nothing. On the football programme ‘El Chiringuito’, Quim Domenech claims that the Barça board are losing faith in being able to secure a deal for Neymar.  Quim says that the club is aware Neymar is much more likely to stay at PSG than he was a week or so ago. ‘Le Monde’ revealed yesterday that in Qatar, they don’t want to sell the Brazilian star and that might have been leaked to both clubs as well. What was already a difficult transfer is now becoming almost impossible. FC Barcelona also believe that Real Madrid are ready to reveal their hand to PSG over a deal too. However, according to the host of the same TV show Josep Pedrerol, Madrid haven’t made any contact with PSG over Neymar yet. “Neymar tiene muchas posibilidades de quedarse en el PSG” 26/08/2019last_img read more

Another day another F.A. charge on Mourinho for abusive comments

first_imgAdvertisement After previous week’s match against Newcastle , Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho finds himself in yet another thorny circumstance as the FA has charged the Portuguese over ‘abusive comments’.Advertisement Man United had to fight the odds to comeback 3-2 against a tricky Newcastle team. Despite grinding out a win , Jose Mourinho took to one of the TV cameras to blurt out insults in Portuguese.Advertisement The Football Association used a lip reader and the 55-year-old’s remarks were interpreted as offensive. According to the FA’s conclusion Mourinho is guilty of “abusive, insulting or improper language”.Things are falling out of control for the two time Champions league winner and one could say time is running out for the Old Trafford boss.Advertisement “As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning, if tomorrow it rains in London it is my fault,” Mourinho said after the game with Newcastle .“If there are some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault.“I have to be ready for all of this. I think a lot of wickedness and clear man-hunting in football is too much.“It is my life. It is the life I love and since I was a kid I work for this.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Mukhi came on as a substitute in their game against Bengaluru FC and scored his first ISL goal. The commentators exclaimed on the top of their lungs that he became the youngest goal-scorer in the ISL, not taking into account his full-grown mustache and muscular shoulders which depict otherwise.Advertisement Gourav Mukhi is suspended till further noticeAn earlier article of 2015 did the rounds in social media and various news websites where it was reported that Jharkhand had been stripped of their U-15 National Championships after five of their players, including Gourav Mukhi, confessed that they were overage.The AIFF released a press release which read the following, “In the interest of fair play, the AIFF Disciplinary Committee based on prima facie seriousness of the issue has put the player under ‘suspension’ from participation in any AIFF events until a final decision is reached.”Advertisement On paper, he is just 16. Moreover, his passport even mentions the same. But, if he was above 15 in 2015, how can he be just 16 three years later? Indian football is marred with the glaring issue of age-fraud. Winning laurels in age-group tournaments are extremely beneficial in acquiring government jobs through the sports quota, and it is this bare minimum which the footballers run after.Gourav Mukhi is summoned by the AIFF on 24th of November in their head office in November where he will be given a chance for justification. Till then, he remains suspended.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework South Africa made their exit from the competition official after their defeat against Pakistan at Lord’s. One of the key reasons behind the Proteas’ failure was Rabada’s poor form which took a huge toll on the team who were devoid of Dale Steyn in the first place.Advertisement Image Courtesy: The Sports PaperIn a surprising revelation, South Africa skipper Faf Du Plessis has revealed that he along with the management tried to stop Kagiso Rabada from participating in the IPL for the Delhi Capitals.The details were revealed when Faf Du Plessis was asked whether Rabada’s inconsistency was as a result of fatigue or not. Despite having a stellar tournament for the franchise, Rabada was subsequently called back home as a result of a back injury which saw him miss out the fag end of the tournament.Advertisement Du Plessis noted that Rabada’s pace was a touch down during the ongoing World Cup and elaborated the situation. He said:“I mean, I spoke about it before the IPL even started, that it’s important that we try and find space to rest our three-format players, because they play all the formats all the time, and then IPL.Advertisement “So I don’t think it’s not necessarily just the IPL, but it was important for a few guys to rest; and the fact that they didn’t mean that they — you know, they came into the tournament not fresh. That’s not an excuse; that’s just a fact. And KG is — you can see that his pace is probably a little bit down from where he normally is,”But the skipper certainly believes that the young speedster would be back to his fiery best in no time. He stated:“So that will be something that KG will need to…you know, he’s a great bowler. He will be able to fix that. His career has been one that’s been probably just going up and up and up and up and up every time he’s played for us. This is probably his first stumbling block as a great fast bowler. So for him now, it will be to show how he responds, how he learns in this period and how he makes sure he gets better. Because he has been great for us, but now he needs to take stock of where his bowling is and then try and get better as a bowler,”Read AlsoICC CWC 19 Preview: England vs. Australia; Who will win this contest of ‘White-Ball Ashes’?CWC 2019- BAN vs AFG: Shakib show puts Bangladesh in contention for semis Advertisementlast_img read more

Petter Seddon, a freelance author in the Derby Local Studies Library found a photo in an old newspaper dedicated to football named Derbyshire Football Express. He soon realised that the photo was dating from March 4, 1876 and depicted an England team of 10 players and a referee before a match against Scotland.Advertisement The photo is from England’s 5th international game of football which was sent to a newspaper outlet by one of the players in the team in 1926.Advertisement “It was a huge slice of luck that I found the picture. At the time, I was trawling through articles in the local studies library, looking through pictures to do with Derby County and England star Steve Bloomer and just happened to stop at the picture of the 1876 team. It was a real needle-in-a-haystack job because there is so much on the archives that it would have been easy to miss.” – Peter SeddonA marvelous antique!Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
