The Lega of the Serie A communicated this Saturday, a few hours before the start of the day, that the Juventus-Inter, Milan-Genoa, Parma-Spal matches, Sassuolo-Brescia and Udinese-Fiorentina will be played on the next 13 of May because of the coronavirus alarm, which caused 21 deaths and more than 800 confirmed infected.“I have a lot of respect for the measures taken in favor of health of citizens but as a club manager I am very worried, especially considering that the calendar is very full of events“, Marotta said in statements to the Italian television “Sky Sport”.“If the Council of Ministers orders the blockade until March 8 I wonder how we will manage the next day, considering which also include teams competing in Europe, such as Atalanta-Lazio, Inter-Sassuolo or Bologna-Juventus, “he added.Marotta expressed concern because Inter, rival of Getafe in the knockout stages of the Europa League, he did not play for security reasons the clash with Sampdoria last week and another day will be lost this Sunday.If the Milanese club reached the final of the Europa League and the final of the Italian Cup, there would be no available dates to recover the garter matches before teams have to free their footballers to play the Eurocup. The CEO of Inter reported that requested a meeting extraordinary to “defend the balance and competitiveness of the tournament” and demanded that decisions be made uniquely. Series A has changed its mind: the five games that were going to be played behind closed doors for the emergency coronavirus (Juventus-Inter, Milan-Genoa, Parma-Spal, Sassuolo-Brescia and Udinese-Fiorentina), will be played on May 13, postponing the final of the Italian Cup to day 20. In the statement, the Italian league explained that the decision has been taken “considering the urgent interventions of the Government to respond to this extraordinary emergency, defending health and public safety.”The idea of postponing the games was developed yesterday, with meetings between sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora and representatives of the Football Federation, Series A and Series B and the president of the Olympic Committee, Giovanni Malagó.

A situation never experienced by Calcio, which should already recover four games from the previous day (Atalanta-Sassuolo and Inter-Sampdoria have no date, while Verona-Cagliari and Torino-Parma will be played on March 11) and it must also consider the obligations of the European Championship, which further reduce the available dates.Marotta admits to being worried about the future of Series AThe CEO of Inter Milan admitted this Saturday that he is worried about the future of the Series A and asked the tournament Lega a “unique criterion”, after that five matches of the twenty-sixth day, including the classic Juventus-Inter, initially planned behind closed doors were postponed by the alarm for the coronavirus.

Every little thing, below the situation that Well being permits the competitors, which is able to be televised, and whether or not or not there can be an viewers.

The assessments carried out on Atlético final Wednesday confirmed the constructive of Renan Lodi in the present day, one in all the three in the First Division, as reported by RAC1 at midday, an issue for Cholo: the Brazilian is the solely pure left again of his squad, the solely footballer with no alternative. It’s both Lodi or a participant who performs out of his place (Saúl y Hermoso) or a boy from Atlético B (Manu Sánchez). There is no such thing as a different. When the competitors is resumed, whether it is lastly achieved, Lodi will lack coaching in comparison with the remainder of his teammates. The motion protocol is obvious: as soon as the constructive was identified, Lodi has been remoted and assessments have to be carried out on all the folks round him. The Brazilian winger has been faraway from the group till he passes this contagion part. At the second it continues to check constructive regardless of the proven fact that the signs associated to this illness started to be felt in March. The remainder of Atlético, in the meantime, will return to coaching individually tomorrow, beginning at 09:00, they may arrive in a staggered method at Cerro del Espino. On this first part the work can be completely “particular person or primary”, with the gamers unfold over the 5 fields of the sports activities metropolis (three on pure grass and two on synthetic grass), ribbons to outline the house for each, with out interactions with one another or with the technicians, who should hold a distance, though with a ball along with bodily, doing workouts with pikes or posts. In an analogous case it’s lovely, with the potential to maneuver from the middle to the left facet, however who isn’t comfy in that secondary place. He had been from Valladolid with out appearing there, consecrating himself in Espanyol as central and in the 4 video games he has performed on the facet, the final one in opposition to Sevilla earlier than the break as a consequence of the well being disaster, he has not satisfied Simeone. His different choice is Manu Sánchez, who has additionally given him motive to belief what he has performed this season. The boy, important for Atlético B, obtained all the reward at Atlético-Osasuna this season for his seriousness when defending and his impudence in elevating the band when he needed to play with the first staff. In León, earlier than the Cultural, he additionally stood out. Now he’s one in all the six youth squads that Simeone has referred to as after this break to shore up his squad (Dos Santos, Manu Sánchez, Toni Moya, Clemente, Riquelme and Valera): If LaLiga returns it is going to achieve this with matches each 72 hours, it wants lungs, males … And one other pure left again in his squad now that he doesn’t know when he’ll get better Lodi. Right here Simeone should begin interested by a hypothetical I like to recommend with out Lodi, or with Lodi nonetheless with out type. The primary resolution in his head is at all times Saul’s. This season he has began three video games on the left facet however there have been many extra that, in the change of Lodi, he needed to transfer to that demarcation to occupy it. That he doesn’t like isn’t any secret, that he at all times complies both, though the better of his circumstances (his stride, his arrival on the second line) are turned off by the distance with the purpose (in actual fact, his finest minutes this season had been coming simply earlier than the break due to the COVID-19, when he was already taking part in, Lodi seated, as a replacement, the middle). Simeone trusts him.
LONDON (AP):Leicester had little to celebrate last Christmas. Languishing in last place in the Premier League, the team was facing instant relegation back to the second tier.Now Leicester are looking down on everyone.From propping up the league, Leicester have surged to the pinnacle inside 12 months and rivals are trying to figure out how to replicate their feat. It has not been accomplished by a spending splurge but through astute bargain buys far expecting expectations and a managerial change that had most pundits forecasting a relegation struggle.The turnaround is as astonishing and unforeseen as Chelsea’s collapse from champions to a team now hovering above the relegation zone. When Leicester beat the champions earlier this month it no longer seemed such a shock, although it cost Jose Mourinho his Chelsea job.The tale of the two clubs and their contrasting fortunes is the biggest surprise in the history of the Premier League.”I don’t know how it’s possible,” Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri reflected this week. “I think it’s a fantastic achievement. If I understood very well, never at this time was Leicester top of the league.”This team, based in an east Midlands city better known for its textiles industry and rugby side, has never won the top prize in English football. Not in the post-1992 Premier League era or any time stretching back into the 19th century. The only major honour Leicester have ever collected is the League Cup, with the third and most recent triumph coming in 2000.Aware how close Leicester came to being relegated last season under Nigel Pearson – before a stunning late revival that was not enough to keep him in a job – Ranieri has cooled fan expectations. The target for this season remains reaching the 40-point mark that should guarantee a place in the Premier League next season. That can be achieved at the halfway point today when a win at Liverpool would lift Leicester to 41 points.As Leicester have remained among the front-runners throughout the season, the widespread expectation has been it was a matter of if – not when – Leicester start to slip down the standings. Two matches from the halfway point and everyone is still waiting.The whole season has been one long mission in defying the critics. Leicester were considered foolish for plucking Ranieri from the ranks of unemployed coaches to replace Pearson in July. It had been 11 years since he had managed in England with Chelsea – during which he was often labelled “The Tinkerman” for constantly changing the starting line up – and he had been out of work since an embarrassing spell in charge of the Greece national team.”I am waiting for when people change my nickname from ‘Tinkerman’ to ‘Thinkerman,'” quipped Ranieri, whose avuncular and calm demeanour contrasts with the league’s more erratic coaches.One thing Ranieri does not own up to thinking about is lifting the trophy for the world’s richest football competition in May.”I think we aren’t ready to fight to be champions,” he said, even as Leicester sit two points in front of Arsenal and six ahead of Manchester City.In the off season, Leicester’s net spending of around $30 million was one sixth of Manchester City’s outlay.”We don’t have the high quality like City, Arsenal, but we fight together,” Ranieri said. “Every ball for us is the last ball. That’s what we believe.”
SOUTH SOUND, Cayman Islands:All-Jamaica champion Chris Binnie hopes to extend his stranglehold on the region after winning an unprecedented fifth consecutive title and record-breaking six at the Caribbean Area Squash Association Senior Championships in Cayman Islands on Tuesday night.”When I won my first regional title in 2009, I never dreamed I would have six overall, much less win this tournament five times in a row, but now that I’ve done it, I just want to keep building on that success and we’ll see how far I go,” he said.Binnie dug deep to fight off Caymanian Cameron Stafford in a tough finale. Buoyed by a boisterous home crowd, Stafford answered Binnie point for point until the score stood at two games-all and the match went to a fifth game-decider.With the title on the line, Binnie moved to another level, taking the fifth game decisively to beat his regional rival 11-7, 7-11, 11-6, 8-11, 11-3.”It was a tough final because Cameron can hit several outright winners in a game,” Binnie observed. “In the end, my strategy was to keep the ball out of his hitting zone, and I’m relieved that I managed to win.”Binnie’s victory was the highlight of a solid performance by Jamaica, as the No. 2 seed, Lewis Walters, took bronze, and rising star Julian Morrison finished sixth.The players now shift focus to the team segment of the tournament, where Jamaica are strong favourites to win the men’s title.”We are thrilled that Chris has retained his title and that we had a strong showing from Lewis and Julian and now it’s on to the team competition,” said team manager Douglas Beckford. “This is our strongest squad in recent years and we should be able to finish on top. Once again, we have to thank our supporters and our main sponsors, JN General Insurance.”The team competition started yesterday, with the Jamaica’s men taking on regional kingpins Guyana and the women going up against Trinidad and Tobago.
KINGSTON: Reigning All Jamaica and Caribbean men’s singles squash champion, Chris Binnie, has inked a sponsorship deal with Stoneleigh Coffee Roasters Company and will promote its Blue Mountain Coffee products in the international market. Under the three-year agreement, the top national and regional player will assume the role of brand ambassador for Stoneleigh Coffee, and will be featured in the company’s sales and marketing efforts overseas. Binnie will actively promote Stoneleigh’s products in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, among other places, as he travels to compete on the Professional Squash Association tour.

In addition, Binnie won his second international professional tournament in October and was ranked among the world’s top 100 squash players in November. A GRATEFUL BINNIE As he aims to move up to the top 75 by May 2016, Binnie expressed gratitude for the sponsorship, which will help to defray the expenses associated with competing on the professional circuit, including travel and accommodation costs, as well as coaching fees. “I am thrilled to have been chosen as a brand ambassador for Stoneleigh Coffee because I am proud to promote the best Jamaican brands in the international arena, and the sponsorship will go a far way in helping me to achieve my goals as a player,” said Binnie. In welcoming the player to his new role, Stephen Shirley, director, Stoneleigh Coffee Roasters Limited, said: “Our sponsorship deal with Chris is a win-win situation because we are bolstering the career of a top-performing Jamaican athlete, and we’re also getting a solid ambassador to promote our brands and products in international markets.”
JAMAICAN TRAINING A PLUS PORTLAND, USA: It isn’t only Jamaicans who train in Jamaica who have been participating at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Indoor Championships at the Oregon Convention Centre this weekend. On Thursday, Tjipekapora Herunga of Namibia competed in the women’s 400m heats. Herunga is a student in the Faculty of Science and Sport at the University of Technology (UTech) and trains with the UTech-based MVP Track and Field Club. The Namibian was hoping to improve on her 55.40-second indoor personal best, but was unfortunately disqualified. “I came out today to run the 400m. It’s kind of hard. It was my second 400m and I came here saying I’m going out there to give my best,” she told The Gleaner. Herunga explained how she ended up in Jamaica from Windhoek, Namibia. “We watch athletics and we see most of the best world-class athletes in Jamaica,” she said. “In Namibia, we have talented people, but I don’t think we have people who can help the athletes go forward, so then our government and UTech came together and decided to give people 50 per cent of our scholarship, and that’s how we end up there and with MVP.” Herunga believes training in Jamaica will help push her to her best. “I think they are people who can push me because, back home, I just train alone, and here, there’s Stephenie (McPherson) and a lot of them and competition-wise, Jamaica always has athletes who can push me to my limit,” she said. Life in Jamaica is different, but Herunga admits to loving the Jamaican cuisine. “The weather is different because we have summer, we have winter, we have spring, but the weather is not that bad. It’s humid. I like the food too. It is different. I love the ackee. That’s one thing that I would take back home, and the training facilities. We don’t have the best training facility, but what we have, it’s enough to take us to Rio.”
Fernandez said San Beda will file an appeal to downgrade Bolick’s disqualifying foul in time for its game against Mapua on Friday.“We’ll appeal that for sure, but how can we appeal if there’s no report? We want to know what happened, why they called it for Robert? Why? They have to justify it,” he said.Fernandez then turned his ire towards commissioner Bai Cristobal, noting that the official could have handled the matter better knowing that decisions made from that situation gravely impact some of the players’ career in the long run.Bolick is in the running for the Most Valuable Player plum, with him currently sixth in the race with averages of 13.56 points, 7.56 rebounds, and 4.67 assists.He also posted a near triple-double performance in the game with 14 markers, 11 dimes, and seven boards, but him being sent to the showers in the game against St. Benilde already rules him out of any individual plum at the end of the season.ADVERTISEMENT Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up royal titles Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “Why would you throw him out?
