Camavinga, condemned if Rennes ends in Champions

first_imgNow the club is in the hands of Nicolas Holveck. The new Breton administration is also interested in delaying the agreement for another year and will try to make the deal with the previous directive good. Anyway, in Rennes they are calm because Real Madrid has yet to call the club’s offices.And the deal also depends on how Ligue 1 ends with the coronavrius problem. Right now the Rennes is third in the table and that position gives access to the preliminary phase of the Champions League, so Camavinga, on paper, should stay one more year in France. Definitely, if Ligue 1 stays as it is by the coronavirus, Madrid could see one of his suitors disappear. And if it resumes, Rennes must fight to keep the position to play the Champions League and to continue enjoying, at least, one more year of his ward. Real Madrid has located Eduardo Camavinga on his radar and will try to sign him if Paul Pogba finally doesn’t land at the Santiago Bernabéu. The 17-year-old midfielder has Zidane’s ‘blessing’ and Rennes has valued it at 50 million euros, although the club in the capital of Brittany will do everything possible to retain him for another year.“I always advise you to stay one more year in Rennes because it is your training club”, assures his coach Julien Stéphan. And if the words don’t soften Camavinga, the club will remind you of an agreement the defensive midfielder arrived at the beginning of the current season.Why L’Equipe reveals this Friday that Camavinga promised to stay in the club for another year if I managed to get the team into the Champions League. But that pact is in question because the midfielder agreed with Olivier Létang, who has been the president of Rennes until February.last_img read more

Baldwin impressed with ‘spectacular’ La Salle big man Santillan

first_imgLights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding “We did a terrible job of keeping contact and body on body and when you don’t do that with him, he’s gonna slaughter you,” he said. “And then, he’s obviously mastered this one hand push shot and it’s unorthodox to say the least so the defense won’t see it coming and that’s another thing to defend Santi this year. You’re going to have to be exceptionally aware or else he’s gonna hurt you because he’s never gonna take  a possession of much less a game.”Santillan also earned the respect of Ateneo guard Thirdy Ravena, who, like Baldwin was in awe of his rise.“I was telling him earlier, he improved a lot. He’s a big help to their team and for me, he’s the X-factor,” Ravena, who had a team-high 17 points, said.“The totality of what he brings doesn’t show up on the stat sheet. The hustle, he just brings the intangibles.”Santillan said he did not expect to hear the kind words from Baldwin.ADVERTISEMENT “I was surprised because it was something I did not expect especially coming from a champion coach like him,” he said in Filipino.Baldwin approached Santillan after the final buzzer sounded.“I said to him after the game, ‘You’re quickly becoming my favorite player in the Philippines.’ So it’s true, it’s honest and I think it’s up to my guys to make sure I don’t have that opinion of him.” Tab Baldwin, who has one of the brightest basketball minds in the international level, knows talent when he sees one.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Korea Trading Manager Guilty

first_imgJames Togbah, former general manager of Korea Trading Liberia Limited, a firm that sells and rents vehicles and spare parts, was convicted on Friday for his involvement in robbing his Korean business partner, Choi Hungchi, of US$54,570.Judge Blamo Dixon of Criminal Court ‘C’, who served as both judge and jury during the trial which lasted several months, found Togbah guilty on charges of misapplication of entrusted property by a convicted felon.Judge Dixon imposed a six months sentence on Togbah and also ordered that he restitute the US$54,570.In the court ruling, Judge Dixon stated that “It is the considered final judgment of the court that the defendant is hereby adjudged guilty of the alleged crime of misapplication of entrusted property.”“The defendant is hereby ordered to make restitution of the amount of US$54,570 and he is hereby sentenced to imprisonment for a period of six months.”Minutes after Judge Dixon’s judgment, lawyers representing Togbah seriously rejected the ruling and subsequently announced an appeal before the Full Bench of the Supreme Court, as provided by the law.Based in that appeal, Togbah would not face his punishment until the Full Bench can decide whether or not Judge Dixon’s judgment was right.Supporting his ruling, the Judge said the defendant lied and deceived his court because he told the court that one Bishop Mannaseh Conto ‘pressurized’ him by taking him to another court, Debt Court, and making him pay US$12,570 to the Bishop’s Sack Group of Companies without the knowledge of his partner Hungchi, who was out of the country.“The defendant told this court that the said amount of US$12,570 was paid through money transfer from the account of Korea Trading Liberia Limited to the account of Sack Group of Companies at the Caldwell Branch of Ecobank-Liberia in Monrovia,” Judge Dixon quoted defendant Togbah’s testimony during the trial.But, according to the Criminal Court Judge, “When one of the defendant’s own witnesses, Bishop Manasseh Conto testified before this court, he said Togbah paid the money by check and same was encashed at the head office of Ecobank on Ashmun and Roland Streets in Monrovia.”Citing portions of the law, Judge Dixon explained that “The uncorroborated testimony of a person accused of a crime is insufficient to acquit, especially when the evidence against him is clear and convincing.”“Any unexplained shortage in an account creates a strong presumption of criminal conversion…false in one thing false in all.”Immediately, after the ruling, Hungchi, in tears, told journalists that at long last he was getting justice.“Actually, I was so worried about what lot of people have been saying about Liberia’s justice system. Some had told me that the justice system was rotten and I was not going to get justice; but now I can tell the rest of the world that there is justice in Liberia for everyone, including foreigners,” Hungchi joyfully told journalists.“Without fear I can now say that Liberia is a country of justice, you just need to try it to see what I’m saying.” The case started on August 17, 2014, when the defendant was indicted by the Grand Jury of Montserrado County based upon a complaint from Choi Hungchi, a Korean businessman owner of Korea Trading Liberia Limited.In his complaint, Hungchi alleged that while he was away due to the intensity of the Ebola virus, when his country advised them to leave Liberia, he and the defendant entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).In that document, Hungchi claimed that he surrendered the company to the care of the defendant but advised him not to make any disbursements without first contacting him through an email.Unfortunately, Hungchi alleged that defendant Togbah, without his approval, withdrew over US$54,000 from his account at Ecobank.Interestingly, when defendant Togbah was first arraigned before Judge Dixon, and the indictment was read to him, he pleaded not guilty. After his not guilty plea, Togbah waived jury trial as provided for under the law.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pellegrini hopes to resolve Lampard’s Man City future ‘in the next few days’

first_img1 Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed he is hopeful discussions over on-loan star Frank Lampard’s future at the club will soon reach a positive conclusion.The former Chelsea hero’ loan from sister club New York City is due to expire at the end of December, but the boss is keen for the player to remain at the Etihad Stadium until the end of the season.Lampard, 36, has also indicated an interest in staying longer, with the carrot of another Premier League title sure to be a factor, but it remains to be seen if an extension can be secured with the Major League Soccer season set to start in March.Lampard is a key figure in City’s bold plan to make an impact in the United States with their new franchise, but Pellegrini is hopeful a deal can be agreed that suits all parties.Asked if he risked upsetting his American counterparts, Pellegrini said: “I don’t think so. That is why we have long conversations with all of them.“That is just one club so I think that what is better for the club is better for all the clubs.“I hope Frank’s situation will be resolved in the next days. I said in the beginning it will be during December we are going to have the last decision.“I repeat, Frank is very important for our team so I hope he will stay here.”last_img read more

Jose Mourinho’s refusal to do this may have been the right move

first_img 5 4. Jose Mourinho’s refusal to speak to the press may have been the right choice – Following the defeat to the Hammers, in which Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands, the Portuguese manager refused to speak to the media. And this may be his best decision of the season, even if it did break the rules. Mourinho’s pre-match and post-match comments have been so negative and uncomfortable of late, that there cannot be many players, staff or supporters that have taken pleasure in listening to his words. There is no question that Mourinho adores being the centre of attention, but such is the crisis that Chelsea are currently suffering, that there is no place for his attitude – and perhaps Mourinho is recognising the affect his behaviour is having. The 52-year-old is facing the biggest test thus far in his managerial career, and the way he handles the situation could actually have a positive impact on his reputation. In avoiding the media at the weekend, he expressed maturity that has been so absent since the start of the season, and it could signal an influential change in his approach. Chelsea suffered their fifth league defeat of the season on Saturday afternoon, losing 2-1 to West Ham United at Upton Park, which sees the Blues drift further down the table to 15th place.With the result still fresh in the minds of supporters, talkSPORT has taken a look at the key talking points.From the future of Jose Mourinho to the performances of the players, find out our five lessons learned by clicking the yellow arrow above, right.  5 1. Forget the manager, the players must take responsibility – find out four more things we learned from Chelsea at the weekend, by clicking the arrow above – Let’s take a step away from criticising Jose Mourinho, and take a look at the performances – or rather lack thereof – from the Chelsea team. The Blues have a collection of world-class players – Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, to name but a few – however, not one can hold their hands up and state that they have given it their all during this slump. It’s easy to single out the manager; after all, he’s the man who faces the media, the questions, and the judgements, while the players cower in the background, hoping that the spotlight isn’t turned on them. But, it’s the reaction of the players, not the manager, that will ultimately get the results. And so far supporters have not seen a reaction from those donning the Blues’ shirt. 5 2. But no single Chelsea player should be used as a scapegoat – Yes, Chelsea are underperforming, but they are doing so as a whole. From those on the field and on the bench, to those behind the scenes, the present crisis at Stamford Bridge stems far beyond what it is seen on our television screens and in the news. After the defeat to West Ham, Nemanja Matic’s red card may be viewed as key in the final result; but the blame cannot lie on the shoulders of the midfielder. The very last thing that needs to happen at Chelsea is for individual players to be turned on. 5 5. Nonetheless, he may really be running out of time – Aston Villa sacked Tim Sherwood on Sunday morning following their sixth successive defeat, and soon after his dismissal, the reaction was that Mourinho would be the next Premier League manager to be axed. Rumour has it that defeat to Liverpool next weekend would result in his second spell in west London coming to an end. Only five months’ ago, Chelsea walked out at Stamford Bridge to a guard of honour by the Reds – what a contrast their next meeting could be. Roman Abramovich’s track record proves that he is unforgiving, and the embarrassment of watching his club struggle against the lesser sides in England’s top flight will have been excruciatingly difficult to stomach for the Russian businessman. If it is Chelsea that hands Jurgen Klopp his first victory as Liverpool manager, this could be the final straw for Mourinho. 3. Eden Hazard must ignore interest from Europe – Once again, Hazard was ineffective for Chelsea, struggling to make any impact at Upton Park. Nonetheless, as reports suggest, his form has not deterred the interest of European giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. While this will no doubt be of significant appeal to the Belgian, should he really wish to move in the hope that the grass is greener elsewhere, he could be making a devastating decision – and not only for the club. The fact of the matter remains that he is the main man at Chelsea, but would he be anywhere else? When compared to Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Arjen Robben, Hazard does not compete. Would he get ahead of Bale in the Real side? Or challenge Neymar at the Camp Nou? The high chances are that no, he would not. The 24-year-old has frustrated supporters considerably this season, and he will surely be confused by his own performances, but it is not his time to give up at Stamford Bridge. 5last_img read more

Arsenal target Jorginho’s agent confirms interest in Napoli star

Jorginho has done well, playing in a team which has done well, so we have to understand what Napoli think of his future.“Unfortunately that’s modern football, you can renew and then leave two months later.“Given the season he’s had, it’s normal that some clubs are interested in Jorginho, and I think some talk has also reached Napoli.“If he were to be sold it would be to make a profit for the club.” Jorginho in action for Napoli 1last_img read more
