The defender fell from the call against Girona, after having dragged a feverish process over the past week. It seems that Saveljich is already recovered, since this Tuesday He has returned to training normally and working with his teammates. Whatever happens on the pitch, the good atmosphere is guaranteed. A few days ago, Barakaldo published this message in Social Networks welcoming the swollen rayista: “We take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday and tell you that We will be delighted to receive such an exemplary, hardworking and humble hobby. Barakaldo and Vallecas have many similarities and its people are very similar. You will be more than welcome friends. ” Lightning fans warm up engines. This week the Copa del Rey returns and Barakaldo receives the French-born team on Sunday, in Lasesarre, at 5:00 p.m. The Basque club has sent a quota of 500 locations, at a price of 15 euros, and a fairly large displacement is expected. The ticket offices of the Vallecas stadium will open Wednesday and Thursday in the morning (from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) and afternoon (from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.). While on Friday they will 10:00 to 12:00 hours or until tickets run out.The Peñas del Rayo Federation has also mobilized and prepared different plans for all those rayistas fans who decide to travel to Barakaldo. One of the modalities offered is the bus trip and the entrance fee for 40 euros for Federation members and € 45 for other fans.

first_imgSevillian Lola Gallardo started her eighth season defending the red-and-white elastic with the ownership attached, despite the arrival of the Dutch Sari Van Vaneendaal, awarded as best goalkeeper in the world. However, an Andalusian injury gave way to the international with the Netherlands, who took the opportunity for several days. When the Madrid goal seemed to settle with Van Veneendaal as a starter, Lola regained his place under sticks, intercalating the participation of both in Champions and Primera Iberdrola. Thus, the Dutch has played a total of 9 days, being the rest (7) of ownership of the Sevilla goalkeeper, who defended the goal rojiblanca in the last game against Sevilla (2-2). Now, the doubt will remain in knowing by which of the two bet the new technician Dani González, that arrives after the dismissal of Pablo López to change the course of the Athletic one. Barça has shown a great scoring level this season, in which it has become the undisputed leader of the First Iberdrola, with only one prick (1-1, in Vallecas). With 65 goals in his favor, Lluís Cortés’s box doubles the 32 goals scored by Atlético (2nd, nine points behind the lead) who visits this Saturday (12:00) in the Wanda Sports City in Alcalá de Henares. The Barca goal, led by the Spanish and European pichichi Jenni Hermoso (18 goals), will threaten the goal of Atlético, where Lola Gallardo and Van Veenendaal fight for a fixed position under sticks. last_img read more

first_imgThe crisis:The financial crisis caused by the coronavirus will make it impossible for PSG to offer Mbappé more salary than Madrid. At the moment, it has already announced that it would have to lower what its stars charge 50%. On the other hand, the Fair Play Financial will force this entity, which will no longer have so much income, to readjust. It is possible that PSG is also forced to sell some of its main players in order to balance accounts that they were above the possibilities of what it generates in the industry (in fact, it is a club supported by an investment fund owned by a State, Qatar).Angry PSG:AS exclusively revealed that Leonardo is leaking a message. The intention that PSG has to let Mbappé, if he does not renew, hurry up the contract that he has until 2022 even if he has to leave him without playing and then leave for free. It is the harsh attitude that Leonardo has taken after the player has been presented with two renewal offers in recent months and that he has not even wanted to sit down to negotiate. Liberation clause:It is the formula that PSG had devised, before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, to get Mbappé to renew his contract. Include a termination clause in it. Something like what Barcelona did with Neymar, who went to PSG for 222 million. That could have gone against Madrid. It is not comfortable for Mbappé to let the end of his contract get so close without having another signed. It is a risk in case of a major injury, for example. And he could have agreed to sign the renewal, which would have made the subsequent price more expensive for Madrid. But now, with so much uncertainty and volatility in the market, it is impossible to raise that clause: no one would sign that it would come out for 200 million when it may soon appear that 100 million is an astronomical or unattainable figure.Player anger:It was the consequence of the tough attitude taken by PSG. The threat leaked by Leonardo to leave Mbappé a year without playing if he does not renew has not sat well in the environment of the player. This has caused the gap between footballer and PSG to widen even further. Because it rains wet. Mbappé does not understand the difference in treatment that Tuchel, his coach, has with respect to what the entity promises him. The confrontations between coach and player have been notable in recent times (and have gone around the world, as when he was traded against Montpellier and faced each other). “I am the coach, this is not soccer, it is tennis,” Tuchel told Mbappé, pulling at his ears. The continuity of the German coach, who seems certain, also brings Mbappé closer to Madrid.JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA (DIARIO AS) The white entity’s roadmap regarding Mbappé is clear: you have to wait for the summer of 2021 to try to hire themon. Nothing changes despite the fact that more girlfriends begin to emerge. Klopp has already called the player’s father, according to Le10 Sport. But in Madrid everything is done with caution and face to PSG, as the white entity considers it a friendly club and Florentino Pérez’s relationship with Nasser Al Khelaifi is exceptional. Therefore, there is a tense calm regarding this operation that is yet to be unleashed. It is only hoped that Mbappé will remain firm in his intention not to renew his contract, ending in 2022. Also, luckily, Recent events are bringing Mbappé closer to the Bernabéu. These are the main…center_img Zinedine Zidane:Zidane has become the great symbol of French footballs.

first_imgPORTLAND, USA:As evidence of his superiority, Omar McLeod hit down almost every hurdle, but still clocked a world- leading and national record 7.41 seconds in an easy run as he claimed Jamaica’s lone gold medal in the 60m hurdles on the final day of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Championships at the Oregon Convention Centre here yesterday.McLeod got a quick start out of the blocks and then eased away from his competition to finish three metres ahead of France’s Pascal Martinot-Lagarde in a season’s best 7.46 second, and Dimitri Bascou in 7.48 seconds.”Never in a million years would I think I’d be world champion at the age of 21, but thanks to God, he made this possible,” an elated McLeod said afterwards.”Coach (Douglas Case) said that if you want to win that race, you’ve got to get out, tunnel vision, and just own the race. I knew that those two French guys would have been there, so I really just wanted to be there with that (in mind). He knew that’s what it would take for me to win that race,” he added.McLeod’s win took the Jamaican medal tally to three, adding to the silver won by Asafa Powell in the men’s 60m on Friday and the bronze won by Elaine Thompson in the women’s 60m on Saturday.Jamaica finished fourth on the medal table, three behind hosts United States with 23 (13 gold, six silver, four bronze); Ethiopia, with five medals (two gold, two silver and one bronze); and France with one gold, one silver and two bronze.McLeod had earlier sprinted away from the field to win semi-final two in a time of 7.52 seconds, equalling the fastest time of the other top-two qualifiers, Martinot-Lagarde of France and Jarrett Eaton of the USA.It was Jamaica’s lone medal on the final day of competition.The women’s 4x400m literally crashed out as Patricia Hall went tumbling to the ground on the second lap of the opening leg of the event. It appeared that Hall’s heel was stepped on by either the athlete from Poland or Nigeria and she stumbled and fell, taking with her any medal hopes the Jamaicans might have had.The remaining members of the quartet, Chrisann Gordon, Stephenie Ann McPherson and Anneisha McLaughlin-Whilby, were forced to watch in disbelief as their last hope dissipated.The United States went on to win the event in a world-leading 3:26.38 seconds, ahead of Poland in a season’s best 3:31.15 and a fast-finishing Romania, also in a season’s best 3:31.51.The men’s 4x400m team of Ricardo Chambers, Dane Hyatt, Demish Gaye, and Fitzroy Dunkley finished fourth in the final event of the evening.Dunkley ran a brave anchor, but could not pull back the fast- flying Americans, who won in a world leading 3:02.45, and the Bahamas with the evergreen Chris Brown on anchor in a national indoor record 3:04.75.last_img read more

first_imgThe Rev. George K. Weagba, a Methodist prelate, has warned church congregations against the habit of complacency in giving resources for God’s work in Liberia.Rev. Weagba, vice president for research at the United Methodist University (UMU) in Monrovia, gave the warning Sunday at a fundraising program held at the David Gueh Memorial United Methodist Church (DGMUMC) in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.The outspoken Methodist prelate also urged church members to give generously and in return receive abundantly from God.On the theme: “Give generously and receive generously,” Rev. Weagba reminded the congregation and Liberians that giving with reluctance should be discouraged among them.The UMU vice president also lamented that over the years, many church members have given their resources for public recognition and praise.“Many only give to gain fame, but if you give small for the work and welfare of God’s people, believe it or not, the Almighty God will also give you very small,” Rev. Weagba warned.He explained that one’s generous gifts and contributions to the work of God strengthens relationships and results in multiple benefits in one’s pursuit of the kingdom of God.“I want you to strengthen the hands of your pastor so that we as humble Christians can bring the glory of God to the lives of many in our country,” Rev. Weagba pleaded.He further intimated that true recognition and genuine blessings only come from God whose blessings cannot be manufactured in any form, shape and manner by ungodly and worldly riches.In closing, Rev. Weagba urged members of the church to unite and work together as foot soldiers for the glory of Jesus Christ and the growth of God’s kingdom on earth.Earlier, during the DGMUMU fundraising program, department heads, youth groups and women’s leaders and members of several committees contributed to the ongoing construction of the church’s walls and other initiatives.  Contributors raised LD24,000 and US$300 in on-the-spot gifts and  pledges.According to the pastor-in-charge of DGMUMU, Rev. K. Richard Tonnonlah, the funds are intended to elevate the edifice’s walls and make other internal improvements. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe crew chiefs for 2003 series champion Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs and Elliott Sadler all were kicked out Tuesday, and NASCAR took the unprecedented step of docking the drivers points before the season even started. The next day, the sanctioning body turned its attention to two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip, whose Toyota team violated the code of the Nextel Cup garage by tampering with its fuel. It led to indefinite suspensions for two of Waltrip’s top employees and a $100,000 fine – the largest in NASCAR history. It was so embarrassing Waltrip almost packed up his car and left. Instead, Waltrip will make his 21st start in the race. There’s been mixed reaction to his situation, with many rivals believing he got off too easy and should have been suspended. Waltrip still has supporters, though, including two-time series champion Tony Stewart. “Nobody wants him to go away by any means,” Stewart said. “He’ll rebound from all this. I mean, it’s a huge bump in the road … but he’s got a lot of friends in this garage area, and I’m sure when it’s all said and done, everything will be fine.” It may never be fine for Toyota officials, who were humiliated by Waltrip’s team in the Japanese automaker’s highly anticipated Nextel Cup debut. Waltrip took pains to distance the incident from Toyota. “I just hope people are able to understand and separate Michael Waltrip Racing from Toyota in this instance, because their integrity and the way they go about things is totally opposite of the position I’ve put them in,” Waltrip said. Orbitz 300Kevin Harvick has been to Daytona’s Victory Lane before – just not as a driver. “I went there the last two years as a car-owner,” Harvick said after driving to his first win at Daytona International Speedway. “This is more fun.” Harvick, who ran away with the 2006 NASCAR Busch Series title, started the season with his 27th Busch victory. This time, he was driving for Richard Childress, who also fields his Nextel Cup Chevrolets. “Any time you can win any race at Daytona it’s big,” said Harvick, who will start 34th in today’s Daytona 500. Saturday’s race was overrun with Buschwhackers – Nextel Cup regulars moonlighting in the junior series – and Harvick controlled the last half of the 120-lap event. Starting 31st in the 43-car field, Harvick crossed the finish line about three lengths ahead of runner-up Dave Blaney, who gave Toyota a solid finish in its first Busch event. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Daytona 500 was supposed to be a celebration of all that’s right with NASCAR – the debut of Toyota and much-heralded rookie Juan Pablo Montoya, and a new format that emphasizes winning. Instead, this version of the Great American Race has been all about a cheating scandal that forced NASCAR to throw six people out of the garage long before today’s race. It’s a drama that generated the mainstream attention NASCAR desperately covets – but for all the wrong reasons. “I think it gave the sport a black eye, (and) we’ve got to recover from that,” said driver Joe Nemechek. “I know this is the most stressful Daytona 500 I’ve ever been in.” center_img That seemed true for almost everyone in the Nextel Cup garage. It was a chaotic Speedweeks, with twists and turns, allegations, bombshell announcements, emotion and apologies. “This week has been mindboggling,” said three-time winner Jeff Gordon. “I’ve been glued to the TV as much as anybody else waiting to see what’s going to happen. Between that and Anna Nicole Smith, I just can’t seem to get myself away from the TV.” The words were barely out of his mouth when Gordon learned the spotlight had shifted to him: The car he drove to victory in a Thursday qualifying race had failed inspection, making him the sixth driver to fall on the wrong side of NASCAR law. But before the label “cheater” could be stitched to Gordon’s name, NASCAR said the problem with his Chevrolet was unintentional and simply stripped him of his starting position – sending him back to the 42nd spot for today’s season-opening race. It was a relative slap on the wrist for the four-time series champion, especially in light of NASCAR’s weeklong crackdown on rule-breakers. last_img read more
