Falcao must prove he is worth Manchester United deal, warns Van Gaal

first_img Radamel Falcao 1 Louis van Gaal has warned Radamel Falcao he has much to prove if he is to remain a Manchester United player.Falcao spelled out his desire to turn his season-long loan from Monaco into a permanent move earlier this week.Van Gaal, however, says he will not be rushed into making a decision on whether to exercise his right to sign the player in a £43.5million deal.The Colombian hitman arrived at Old Trafford to much fanfare in August, but has struggled to make an impact, having been hampered by injuries, and has scored just once in eight appearances.“He hasn’t played so much,” Van Gaal said when asked about the possibility of signing Falcao, who could get his chance to impress against Aston Villa on Saturday.“You cannot see too much of a player if he doesn’t train so much.  He has been injured a lot of time. First you have to be fit.“Now he shows fitness in the training sessions so maybe I shall select him (against Aston Villa), maybe for the bench or the line up. Let’s wait and see.”United are set to welcome back Angel di Maria for the trip to Villa as they go in search of a seventh successive Premier League win.Di Maria has sat out the last three games with a hamstring strain but has returned to training and Van Gaal could put him straight back into his starting XI.“Maybe I shall select him on the bench or in the team. There’s one training session to go,” Van Gaal said of the £59.7million summer arrival.last_img read more

Man Utd fined, Jose warned over late Valencia kick-off

first_imgUnited arrived at Old Trafford less than 45 minutes before kick-off on October 2 and had to ask Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic to delay the start of the game by five minutes.Mourinho blamed the delay on local police for not providing an escort for United’s team bus, but police officials said the club knew well ahead of time no such service would be provided and had time to make the adequate arrangements.“We left the hotel at six o’clock, hoping that 30 minutes would be enough, which normally it is, but this time the police refused to do an escort so we came by ourselves,” said Mourinho after the match which ended in a 0-0 draw.“We took from the Lowry Hotel, 75 minutes and UEFA were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because we at least need half an hour to be prepared, but it was not a problem with the club organisation.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho blamed the lack of a police escort for his side’s late arrival against Valencia © AFP / GREG BAKERLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 19 – Manchester United have been fined a total of Sh1.7mn (£13,200) by UEFA for the late kick-off to their Champions League match against Valencia earlier this month caused by the hosts being caught in traffic.UEFA’s disciplinary arm fined United Sh581,000 (5,000 euros) for the late arrival of the team bus, and a further Sh1.2mn (10,000 euros) for the late kick-off, while United manager Jose Mourinho was also warned over the delay.last_img read more

Arsenal fight back to claim Europa League last 32 spot

first_img0Shares0000Alexandre Lacazette and Bukayo Saka were on target in the space of three second-half minutes.PARIS, France, Dec 12 – Arsenal came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Standard Liege and make sure of a place in the Europa League last 32 as Group F winners on Thursday.Alexandre Lacazette and Bukayo Saka were on target in the space of three second-half minutes. The Gunners, runners-up to Chelsea last season, finished the group stage with 11 points and a relatively easier draw in the knockout rounds.They lived on their nerves as Eintracht Frankfurt were poised to knock them off top spot when the Germans led Guimaraes 2-1.However, the Portuguese side, already eliminated, scored twice in the last five minutes to claim a 3-2 win.Arsenal had beaten Liege 4-0 in the first meeting between the two sides and with a place in the knockout round already virtually certain, caretaker coach Freddie Ljungberg made nine changes to his starting line-up in Belgium.The home side took the lead just after half-time when a speculative Samuel Bastien shot took a huge deflection which left Gunners goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez wrong-footed.The goal meant Arsenal had failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 13 matches in all competitions, equalling their worst ever run under Arsene Wenger in 2004.It got worse after 69 minutes when Selim Amallah made it 2-0 off another deflection as Liege looked for the unlikely scoreline of 5-0 which would put them through and Arsenal out.However, Lacazette calmed Arsenal nerves after 78 minutes when he headed in a cross from Saka.Three minutes later, the impressive Saka levelled the scores with a fine finish from the edge of the box.Frankfurt had beaten Arsenal in London last time out with a win which hastened the departure of Gunners coach Unai Emery.They were on course to finish top of the group after Danny Da Costa and Daichi Kamada gave them a 2-1 lead over Guimaraes.However, Libyan midfielder Ali Al Musrati and English winger Marcus Edwards scored in the 85th and 87th minutes to leave Frankfurt in the runners-up spot.Elsewhere, Celtic, fresh from winning the Scottish League Cup last weekend and already assured of making the last 32, lost 2-0 at Cluj who went through as Group E runners-up behind the Scots.Italian giants Lazio, third in Serie A, were knocked out after a 2-0 loss at Rennes in the same group.0Shares0000(Visited 30 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Killings in Ukraine getting a closer look

first_img“We cannot underestimate this. It is historic, it is history that … may be changed based on new information,” said Mikhail Tyaglyy of the Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies. History books, too, may need to be changed – or written – to explain how an estimated 1.4 million of Ukraine’s 2.4 million Jews disappeared in just three years from 1941-1944. After repeated waves of emigration, only about 100,000 remain today, according to official figures. While the Holocaust has been well-documented in Western and Central Europe, few have studied what happened when the Nazis overran what is now Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and western Russia. Soviet authorities discouraged such scholarship, content to keep history books focused on the costly Red Army victory over Hitler’s forces. State-condoned suspicion of Jews, meanwhile, continued to proliferate as it had since the pogroms of pre-revolutionary times. Official indifference continues today. Tyaglyy performed his research in near-isolation in his native Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, while colleagues worked in the capital Kiev or in Kharkiv in the east. Ukraine’s central government has paid their studies little heed. On Monday, they earned welcome recognition as they joined the dais at the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne for two days of often electric, sometimes heart-rending talks. Related discussions were continuing at other venues in Paris throughout the week. “This is two totally different universes coming together,” said the Rev. Patrick Desbois, a French Roman Catholic priest from the Yahad-In Unum, a Paris-based group documenting Jewish mass graves in Ukraine. He was referring to the Ukrainian researchers long closed off from the rest of the world. It was Desbois’ recent work gathering testimonies from Ukrainian Holocaust witnesses that helped inspire the idea for the conference. These testimonies, including those of destitute villagers who had rarely, if ever, spoken about what they saw and did during the war, formed the most powerful evidence presented. Omer Bartov, a renowned Holocaust expert and history professor at Brown University, said such testimonies are only one step in understanding the Holocaust in Ukraine. He described, for instance, how Ukrainian police started rounding up and killing Jews in the summer of 1941 in anticipation of the arrival of German troops in an area of what is now western Ukraine. The question of collaboration haunted this week’s talks. There was no consensus reached, however, on whether the witnesses interviewed by Desbois – as well as others since deceased – were willing participants or were just following orders in whatever actions they took.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PARIS – Who is to blame for the killing of 1.4 million Jews in Nazi-occupied Ukraine? And what can be done now to dispel age-old anti-Semitism in Ukraine, honor Jewish dead and move on? For the first time, scholars from around the world shared documents and knowledge about the Holocaust in Ukraine at a conference this week in Paris dedicated to this poorly understood passage in Adolf Hitler’s torrent of terror across the continent. The talks were not easy, as resentment, frustration and emotion bubbled repeatedly to the surface among the researchers from Israel, Ukraine, Germany, the United States and elsewhere. While no major surprises emerged, pieces of Ukraine’s Holocaust story came together as never before: killings of Jews in western Ukraine before the Nazis arrived, botched Soviet orders to evacuate Jews from the encroaching Germans, mass grave sites only now being discovered – even as long-known Jewish grave sites are being abandoned, razed or used as open-air markets. last_img read more

We have nothing further to add to this,” he said. The woman’s father refused to comment on the family’s ordeal when approached.A source said they are very worried about the incident and are hoping it will pass over.“You can imagine how they felt when they opened this letter and saw this bullet inside. They were sick.“There was also a note with the bullet and that wasn’t very nice either.“The family are hoping this will pass but they are obviously sick to their stomachs with worry for their daughter,” he said.

FUFA closes AFCON 2019 project, sets sights on World Cup 2026

first_img Tags: abdallah mubiruAFCON 2017AFCON 2019Moses MagogoSebastien DesabreSenegaltopUganda Cranes FUFA President Moses Magogo (2nd left) flanked by other FUFA officials, addressed journalist at FUFA House on Wednesday, June 10tth-2019. (PHOTO/FUFA)MENGO  – It is not easy to set a target and achieve it either on time or before due date but for the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA), they can take pride in the fact that they did exactly that.Back in 2014 at one of their symposiums, FUFA set a target of seeing the Uganda Cranes participate at the 2019 AFCON.Two years before their set target, the federation oversaw Uganda reach the continental finals in Gabon, achieving their long term target before the due date.It was a target already achieved but due to their ambitious tendencies, they knew that the job was not yet done and concentrated on AFCON 2019, a target that they eventually achieved with a game to spare, in the qualifiers.With all that now history, the people in Mengo have once again opened a new chapter, setting the World Cup 2026 as their new target.This was revealed at a press conference at FUFA House in Mengo where the Federation president made the announcement.“Everyone is aware that the last time Uganda had reached the AFCON finals before 2017, was in 1978, with close to 80% of Ugandans unborn. Said Magogo.“That took us 38 years, 19 attempts, 14 FUFA presidents, 16 head coaches, over 16 captains, over 800 players and six heads of state so as to qualify once again for the finals.“When we came up with the target back in 2014, many people doubted us and I have to admit, it felt like we were a bit being over-ambitious.“We knew it was not going to be easy but we drew down a strategy which we executed and I can proudly sit here and say we achieved our goal.“It feels great that we did not only achieve our 2019 AFCON target but we did so two years prior as the Cranes participated at the 2017 finals in Gabon.Uganda returned to AFCON in 2017 after a 38-year absence.This is a major milestone for the Federation which has stuck to its goals and values despite a lot of challenges along the way.On top of securing their targets, they ensured that the team plays what is termed as ‘beautiful’ football.“The other thing is that we have not only qualified for the two AFCONs but also played beautiful football which many Ugandans can sit back home and pride in. Magogo continued.“We came up against the best team on the continent (Senegal) and despite the fact that we lost, we used the game to measure our progress and our performance speaks volumes.Uganda who have never made it to the World cup will have two finals to achieve that according to Magogo.“Today I sit here to announce that that AFCON 2019 chapter is now closed and we are setting new targets. Continued the FUFA president.“We may have overachieved in the recent past but that will not stop us from setting our sights on bigger goals.“We still have challenges like our players not making it to the top leagues in the world but we will also be looking to overcome that, such that when we come up against sides like Senegal and Egypt, we can compete ably.“As a federation, we have our sights set on the FIFA World Cup 2026.“It is an ambitious move but we know we have time on our side to achieve that as there are three AFCON finals before the said World Cup, three CHANs and the World cup 2022 in Qatar.Magogo who replaced Lawrence Mulindwa in 2013, also noted that they are aware of certain people who continuously try to frustrate the Federation’s plans but assured that all that will not hinder their plans.Magogo assured that negative forces will not deter FUFA’s plans. (PHOTO/file)“There are some forces that try to weather down our plans and achievements by trying to shade a very wrong picture about FUFA.“I can assure everyone that FUFA is very healthy, it’s working and its governance structure is very proper, hence the success we are currently achieving.“Football is supposed to unite people and the frenzy that went on as Uganda played at the 2019 AFCON is a testament to that.Also during the same press conference, Magogo assured that all the players have been paid and none of them is demanding the federation a single penny.“Today as I speak, none of the players is owed a single shilling.“Their money from the time they were still playing the 2019 AFCON qualifiers, has been wired to their accounts.It should be noted that the Uganda Cranes players who featured at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt each received UGX 55m initially and they were added another $6000 following a strike before the Senegal game.However, the Cranes are without a permanent head coach after Sebastien Desabre terminated his contract.Desabre left his role as Cranes head coach this past Sunday. (PHOTO/file)In a move to curb the issues, FUFA has announced that Abdallah Mubiru will take over the role on an interim basis.Comments last_img read more

Chelsea boss Conte does not fear the sack

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesBoss Antonio Conte said Chelsea’s “value” will be reflected by their league position at the end of the season and he is not concerned about being sacked if the Blues fail to qualify for the Champions League.The 3-1 home defeat against Tottenham saw Chelsea slip eight points adrift of Spurs and the top four.But the Italian, who won the Premier League title in his first season, said: “I am not worried. The club has to take the decision.“I am giving – and the players are giving – everything this season. But this season is going in this way and now we have to try to do our best until the end.“We must be realistic to understand that the teams ahead of us are going very fast. Today we had a great chance to close the gap but we lost the chance. We have to try to do our best in these seven games to do everything to make the Champions League.“The players are working very hard to try to have a good season but at the end we have to understand our value is this.“We created a lot of problems for Tottenham. The difference was Tottenham was very clinical. We are creating a lot of chances to score.“Today it was the same. We created many chances but scored only one goal.”See also:De Bruyne says he only spoke to Mourinho twice at ChelseaChelsea are Premier League’s second-highest spenders on agents Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youApartments for Sale | Search AdsApartments in Dubai Might Be Cheaper Than You ThinkApartments for Sale | Search AdsUndoDubai Hotels | Search AdsDubai Hotels Costs Might Amaze YouDubai Hotels | Search AdsUndoFood World Magazine15 Fruits that Burn Fat Like CrazyFood World MagazineUndoProperty Investment | Search AdsDubai Real Estate Investment Properties May Surprise YouProperty Investment | Search AdsUndogamersrack.com15 Hilarious Cats Who Can Make You Laugh Guaranteed Don’t Blow Your Mind When See Last One!gamersrack.comUndoTop Journey Mag15 Things Men Should Never Wear While FlyingTop Journey MagUndoFitness Engage10 Vitamins You Need to Take to Stay FitFitness EngageUndoKingdom Of Men20 Classic Muscle Cars That We All CravedKingdom Of MenUndolast_img read more
