Despite the club’s best efforts to sanitise Parc des Princes to make it possible to welcome spectators amid the coronavirus outbreak, the French government’s announcement on Sunday night that gatherings of more than 1,000 people will be banned until further notice has ended those hopes. “Applying the measures announced by the Defence council last night,” read the Paris Police statement. “The Police prefect has decided that PSG vs. Dortmund will take place behind closed doors.” PSG saw their Ligue 1 clash away at Strasbourg postponed on Saturday because of a spread of coronavirus in the lower Rhine region. Talks are also ongoing over the possibility of playing Barcelona’s game against Napoli, scheduled for March 18, behind closed doors due to the continued outbreak. Sources have told ESPN that Barca will meet with various departments of the Catalan government on Tuesday to make a final decision.

Naples is not one of the areas areas in Italy which is locked down because of the virus, but Figueras explained there are concerns that allowing 5,000 Napoli fans to travel to Barcelona in the current climate is not a good idea.

Moyes to face the press

first_img Press Association The Scot on Thursday agreed a six-year deal to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. The 71-year-old United boss will retire at the end of the season. Everton had prepared for the eventuality of Moyes leaving, with his contract due to expire in the summer, but were taken aback by the speed of events over the last 48 hours. However, they are determined not to allow the issue to overshadow their final two matches of the season and the 1.30pm press conference is to preview the visit of West Ham. In announcing details of their weekly press conference Everton said: “Please note Mr Moyes will not be answering any questions on the subject of Manchester United or his appointment as the club’s new manager.” Celtic’s Neil Lennon, Wigan’s Roberto Martinez and Porto’s Vitor Pereira are the front-runners to replace Moyes at Everton. However, the agent of Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has ruled out the Dane – who reportedly has a £10million buy-out clause – from the race. “Michael is very happy at Swansea. We do not think about any other possibilities,” Bayram Tutumlu is quoted as saying by the South Wales Echo. “He will not be changing clubs. He likes Swansea and is very settled. People always talk about Michael becoming a coach of other clubs because he has done very well. “But he is the manager of Swansea and that will not change. The Swansea fans do not need to worry. He will be there next season.” Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has learned a lesson from losing Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool last summer – for somewhere between £3million and £5million in compensation – and has put an even higher price on Laudrup. But he does not feel that the clause will even be tested. “Michael has made it clear he is not looking to move on,” he said. “He is not a guy who needs publicity. He is doing a job he loves doing and he is happy here.” center_img Departing Everton manager David Moyes is due to hold his weekly press conference but the club insist he will not answer questions about his appointment as Manchester United manager.last_img read more

Falcao heads to Chelsea on loan

first_img Having missed the 2014 World Cup with a serious knee injury, Falcao’s career appeared to be back on the rise as he joined United as part of van Gaal’s revolution. But he scored just four league goals, coming against Everton, Aston Villa, Stoke and Leicester, in 26 appearances as United finished fourth. Meanwhile, Chelsea were winning the league and Capital One Cup double with their own new forward Diego Costa helping himself to 20 Premier League goals. Now he will be teamed with Falcao – after the pair played together in Madrid – in what is a potentially potent strike-force at Stamford Bridge, with the Colombia international already targeting silverware. “I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe,” Falcao told Chelsea’s official website. Falcao, who failed to find the net for Colombia as they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the Copa America, has enjoyed success throughout Europe since initially moving to Porto in 2009. He made his Champions League debut against Chelsea and also hit a hat-trick against the Blues in the European Super Cup during a goal-laden spell at Atletico Madrid. Falcao then made his way on to Monaco but his big-money move was less successful as he suffered a serious knee injury in 2014 and missed half of the Ligue 1 season and the World Cup. Having already played with fellow Chelsea players Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Felipe Luis at Atletico and Juan Cuadrado at international level, Falcao will already have a host of familiar faces in the Chelsea dressing room and, with a manager determined to get the best out of him, the forward will be hoping to show he can cut it in the Premier League. He is now expected to link up with his new team-mates on a pre-season tour of the United States, with his return to Old Trafford pencilled in for December 28. The 29-year-old scored just four times at Old Trafford as United manager Louis van Gaal opted against signing the Monaco man on a permanent basis. Instead, Falcao will be plying his trade for reigning champions Chelsea under the stewardship of Mourinho – who said earlier in the summer that he wanted to help the former Porto and Atletico Madrid striker reach his level again and that he was hurt that English football fans thought the real Falcao was the out-of-sorts figure seen at Man United. Press Associationcenter_img Chelsea have completed the loan signing of Radamel Falcao with Blues boss Jose Mourinho hoping to bring out the real form of the Colombian after his mediocre year at Manchester United.last_img read more

PGA Tour announces plans to resume in June

first_img(BBC) – The PGA Tour has announced plans to resume in June with the first four tournaments played behind closed doors.The Tour has been suspended since March 12 because of the global coronavirus pandemic that has halted all golf.The Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas is scheduled to be the first tournament back on June 11-14.“Our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in the world’s return to enjoying the things we love,” said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan.The golfing calendar has been severely disrupted because of the COVID-19 outbreak, with The Open Championship cancelled and the three other men’s majors rescheduled.The RBC Heritage is due to be the second tournament back from June 18-21 – the original dates for the US Open, which has been moved to September.The Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands is next from June 25 to 28 June, followed by the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit GC from July 2 to 5.The Memorial Tournament, originally scheduled for June 4-7, will now take place from July 16 to 19, which is when the 149th Open Championship was due to be held at Royal St George’s in Kent.The PGA Tour statement added: “At this time, the Tour plans to resume play with the first four events closed to the general public but will continue to monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of local and state authorities in order to determine the most appropriate on-site access in each market.“As such, the Tour will continually review available COVID-19-related protocols that could be implemented at PGA Tour events to ensure the health and well-being for all involved.”In what could be a confusing summer and autumn, the PGA Tour will end its 2019-20 season and start the next one, with two of this year’s men’s majors still to be played.The reorganised calendar will see the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational take place at the end of July, a week before the first men’s major of the year, the PGA Championship (August 6-9).The final two weeks in August will see the start of the three events that make up the FedEx Cup Play-offs, with the season-ending Tour Championship taking place September 4-7.The 2020-21 season starts the following week, but the US Open slots in September 17-20 with the biennial Ryder Cup between the US and Europe the following week as originally scheduled, and the delayed Masters set for November 12-15.Despite the announcement, Monahan insists the tournaments will only go ahead if it is deemed safe to do so by the authorities.“Today’s announcement is another positive step for our fans and players as we look toward the future,” he said.“But as we’ve stressed on several occasions, we will resume competition only when – working closely with our tournaments, partners and communities – it is considered safe to do so under the guidance of the leading public health authorities.”last_img read more

B’ville football intent on returning to winning ways

first_imgSeveral factors – some on the field, some off the field – contributed to the Baldiwnsville football team’s rare tumble in 2018.Accustomed to winning records and challenging for championships, the Bees found itself missing the Section III playoffs and finishing at a pedestrian 4-5 – something players and coaches alike are bent on fixing.To that end, B’ville focused as much on restoring good chemistry as it did the usual amount of running, lifting weights and other forms of exercise during the off-season.In particular, players stressed the importance of gatherings at a small local diner where they could eat and bond. They called themselves the “Pancake Platoon” in honor of the breakfast staples they would often order and then eat with gusto.Whether all the carbohydrates translate into wins on the field remains an open question, but lineman Zach Moore pointed out that the last time B’ville missed the post-season a decade ago, they rebounded with sectional titles in 2009 and 2010.Nearly a decade later, a similar mindset fuels the Bees, and head coach Carl Sanfilippo said that paying attention to Xs and Os, along with building the team’s overall character, will contribute to a revival in 2019.What helps B’ville’s odds is having most of its top skill players back, along with Braden McCard, who started most of the 2018 season at quarterback and now has a year’s seasoning on him, plus a better grasp of the Bees’ offense.Of course, the Bees have long emphasized the ground game, to great success. And it could do so again with Mike Letizia at tailback, though Letizia might not get the same large amount of carries if the likes of Willie Strong help him out. Colton Lacey and Dan Ewald are both poised to work at fullback.When McCard does throw, he has a veteran core of receivers to rely on, whether it’s Pat May, Don Fabrizio and Colby Hahn at wide receiver, or the tight-end duo of Bobby Hamm and Cameron Jessen.Moore, at tackle, and Phil Fiorentino, at guard, lead B’ville’s offensive line, while Logan Sather is under center. That trio, along with 300-pound James Glamos, could produce the kind of powerful physical presence like so many Bees front lines of the past.Moving to the defensive side of the ball, B’ville has plenty of questions on that front line, especially at tackle, though Strong and Hamm should both flourish at the end spots.Just as they’re expected to work in the backfield, Letizia, Ewald and Lacey will lead the Bees at linebacker, while McCard augments his play-calling duties by starting at strong safety next to May at free safety. Hahn and Fabrizio are the most likely starters at cornerback.The Class AA-2 division remains the same as 2018, B’ville having to face two-time defending sectional champion Cicero-North Syracuse, along with West Genesee, Fayetteville-Manlius, and Utica Proctor, all of whom finished ahead of the Bees in last fall’s standings.Still, B’ville only has two true road games, and one of the “road” contests is Saturday’s 4 p.m. opener in the Kickoff Classic at the Dome against Jamestown, the long-time Section VI power that won state championships in 2000 and 2014.This is a particular treat for Sanfilippo, whose father coached at Jamestown for 18 years and whose brother and sister graduated from that high school. Following this, B’ville has its home opener Sept. 13 against Horseheads, from Section IV.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Baldwinsvillefootballlast_img read more

Metro expert shares experiences and LA public transportation future

first_imgWhen L.A. Metro Chief Planning Officer Therese McMillan flew to Los Angeles to begin her job, she was struck by the responsibility of helping almost 10 million people use public transportation.Her job held such high importance to her that she presented “Juggling Crystal Balls: Tackling LA County’s Transportation Future” Tuesday night at the Price School of Public Policy’s METRANS Transportation Center. McMillan also spoke about the challenges of planning transportation in a time when she said new technology is frequent and disruptive.“Uber and Lyft have forced us to ask the question: What does public transportation really mean?” McMillan said. “No one knows what will happen in 40 years.”McMillan also emphasized the importance of closing the opportunity gap for L.A. citizens.“The customer has to be the foundation of any good planning process,” McMillan said. “It’s not the infrastructure, not the money, but the people we serve.”Yurida Ramos, a graduate student in the Master of Planning program, works with METRANS and helped organize the event in conjunction with Victoria Deguzman, the Associate Director of Administration for METRANS. Deguzman stressed the importance of public entities in Los Angeles.“I really enjoy working for a public agency because I like the idea that we are reaching all of our constituents,” Ramos said. “I want to make sure all of our programs are equitable.”Ramos said she was impressed with McMillan’s view of a nebulous future for public transportation.“I liked the long range transportation plan model that she has,” Ramos said. “She spoke a lot of truth when she said a lot of people plan for the future when we don’t have all the numbers.”Fahad Manzur, a senior majoring in economics, said he came to the event because of the links he sees between public transportation, urban development and economic decisions.“I plan on living in Los Angeles, and I do have troubles with transportation here,” Manzur said. “I think that [McMillan] understands there is a lot of restructuring that needs to happen, and she’s working hard to organize the system.”Eric Tunell, a graduate student in the Master of Planning program, considered access to public transportation when choosing where to live.“I prefer to take the train when I can to avoid traffic,” Tunell said. “I’m really happy that Los Angeles seems to be committed to expanding these types of options.”Tunell also works with METRANS and said he was excited to hear about the new plans for more equitable and community-based transportation. “[McMillan] thinks in a very comprehensive way about the challenges that Los Angeles faces,” Tunell said. “It’s always exciting to hear a practitioner talk about the real-world applications of what we’re learning in class.”Correction: A previous version of this article stated that “Juggling Crystal Balls: Tackling LA County’s Transportation Future” was the name of McMillan’s book. It was actually the name of the event. The article also stated Victoria Deguzman was the Assistant Director of Administration for METRANS. She is the associate director. The Daily Trojan regrets the errors.last_img read more
