first_img Sport EN CEST Luis Enrique’s side now play Valencia on Sunday with the added pressure of having Madrid breathing down their necks, while Atletico could move level with Barça if they beat Granada.  Keylor Navas says Real Madrid “won’t give up” after beating Getafe 5-1 to move within one point of Barcelona.  Title race: We will keep working hard. We won’t give up at any moment and, from here on, let’s see what happens.   16/04/2016 at 18:46 Getafe: It was a complicated game because they are in a difficult situation and came out giving everything, but we did our work well and with the respect that Getafe deserved.  Good form: Things are going well for me, I’m happy. Thanks to God the team has won another game, too. The team did the right things in the majortiy of moves.  Here is what Navas had to say to Canal+ after goals from Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo eased Madrid to victory: Manchester City: We have to be happy to be in the Champions League semi-final and respect the rival, who are a great team, but we will try to win. With humility and hard work, everything is possible.  The double: We are Real Madrid and we will give everything [to win Champions League and La Liga]. After that, let’s see what happens. But what is clear is that we always fight for all the trophies.last_img read more

Parfaite Harmonie residents call for Police Station

first_img…Minister Ramjattan says request “too late”Security was among the top priorities discussed at a meeting held between law enforcement and Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara residents on Friday night at the community’s Primary School.The meeting was the first in a series planned under an interactive community engagement programme by the Public Security Ministry towards addressing the security concerns of residents across the country.At the meeting at the Parfaite Harmonie Primary School, a team – comprising D Division (West Demerara and East Bank Essequibo) Commander Leslie James; Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan and Deputy Regional Executive Officer Jennifer Ferreira-Dougall – addressed concerns about speeding of vehicles, loud music playing in vehicles, adults preying on schoolgirls and the dumping of garbage.They also responded to calls made for the establishment of “a much-needed Police Station” within the community.Minister Ramjattan advised residents that “it is simply too late” to get the funding for the construction of the Police Station into the 2018 Budget. It is “well past” the deadline for the submission of programmes and projects for inclusion in the Budget, the Minister explained.In the interim, as the Ministry works to address this concern, the Minister encouraged the residents to form a Community Policing Group, that will be the “eyes and ears of the community”, the Department of Public Information reported.Garbage disposalAs it relates to the sore issue of the wanton disposal of garbage in the community, the residents disclosed that some were refusing to pay $400 per week for disposal services and instead had resorted to disposing of their garbage around the community.Ramjattan observed that this was an issue that could be addressed by the members of the community themselves. He suggested that the residents report such acts as soon as they witness them.  He also called on those residents who engaged in such actions to desist, and warned of the consequences.To address the unhealthy situation in the community as a result of the dumping, the Minister told the residents that he would seek to have a Community Organised for the Restoration of the Environment (CORE) group established in Parfaite Harmonie. CORE is aimed at empowering and bettering communities through the formation of community groups aimed at the beautification of the environment. Divisional Commander James assured that the issue of older men preying on schoolgirls was on the front burner for the Police. According to the Commander, he had instructed ranks a while back to embark on an intel-led operation. James stated, “I recalled three such persons were brought before me by my staff and I warned them, because when they were intercepted, they were not engaged in the act… we recorded it and they were warned sternly. Their excuses were that they were just relaxing, which, of course, was just an excuse.”A campaign was also launched to address the issue of speeding, the playing of loud music and tinted vehicles. Since then, 10 persons were taken into custody and were scheduled to appear before the court.The Commander told residents that he has an open-door policy and encouraged residents to visit his office whenever they have issues that need to be addressed. After the engagement, residents of the community expressed their gratitude on having a fruitful discussion. Wilbert Vyphuis, who has been living in La Parfaite Harmonie for the past four years, said: “We have to understand that it all comes down to resources, what you have and how you can best make use of it, so I am satisfied with what he said and I can only hope that the promises that were made, that those promises will be kept.” The next security meeting is set for Sunday with residents of Skeldon, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).last_img read more

Trabzonspor stun Inter

first_imgTrabzonspor had actually already been knocked out in the third qualifying round by Benfica.Despite their dream start, coach Senol Gunes wasn’t getting carried away.“First of all it’s great because we weren’t very well known before but this will help us a lot,” he said.“But it’s too early to talk positively, it’s a positive result but there are still many games to go.“Obviously we expected something different from Inter but at the same time this is football.“It’s not enough just to have great players like (Esteban) Cambiasso, (Giampaolo) Pazzini and (Wesley) Sneijder, anything can happen on the pitch.”Although Inter enjoyed the greater number of chances, the visitors remained disciplined and organised and struck from their only real chance to gain a famous victory over their illustrious opponents.After being vilified in the Italian press following Sunday’s 4-3 defeat at Palermo, Gasperini bowed to the pressure and abandoned his back three.But he denied he had been forced to do so.“No-one pushed me to pick one formation or another, that’s a total invention, all I did was try to correct the mistakes (from Sunday),” he said.“Two defeats hurt, even if tonight’s was for different reasons.“Sunday’s wasn’t a complete blow-out, in the second half we made a lot of mistakes.“Our interpretation of the game wasn’t right as we conceded too many counters, maybe also due to our desire to win.“We played differently today, we have many options and we can still do very well inthe league.”But while the conventional back four may have offered him more solidity in defence, it didn’t help the spectacle at an embarrassingly empty San Siro.The first chance came on 19 minutes as an Arkadiusz Glowacki mistake gave Mauro Zarate a chance but Didier Zokora got back to block his progress and then as Inter continued to press Giray Kacar tackled Zarate as he was about to pull the trigger.Pazzini was then perhaps a touch lucky to stay on the pitch after catching Marek Cech with his elbow, although none of the officials seemed to notice.Suddenly on the half hour mark came a flurry of chances for the hosts.Zarate forced goalkeeper Tolga Zengin into a save at his near post and from the resulting corner, a Turkish mistake presented Pazzini with a chance from seven yards but on the turn he missed the ball completely.Moments later Zengin rushed from his line to smother another Zarate effort.Gasperini waited only 10 minutes into the second half to make a pair of changes, Argentines Diego Milito and Ricardo Alvarez replacing Pazzini and Nigerian Joel Obi.Inter finally opened up the Turks defence when a lucky ricochet helped Cambiasso slip in Milito on the penalty spot with only Zengin to beat but the big goalkeeper spread himself well to prevent a goal.Moments later Milito headed off target from Javier Zanetti’s cross.The sucker punch came 14 minutes from time as Halil Altintop collected the ball at the back post and smacked a volley against the bar, with Celustka picking up the loose ball and firing across Julio Cesar from a tight angle.The excellent Zengin came to his side’s rescue two minutes from time as he plunged to his right to beat away substitute Coutinho’s rasping drive.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000MILAN, Italy, September 15 – Outsiders Trabzonspor stunned 2010 winners Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League at the San Siro here on Wednesday to heap more misery on the Italian side’s coach Gian Piero Gasperini.Czech right-back Ondrej Celustka was the unlikely hero for the Turks, who are only playing in the Champions League on a wild card after Turkish champions Fenerbahce were kicked out over a match-fixing scandal.last_img read more

Cowan’s injury creates uncertainty

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Karl Dorrell said Cowan will play against Washington State Saturday, and that he’ll return to practice today. “We’re trying to get some other quarterbacks ready to play, just in case,” Dorrell said. “Pat, I did not want to practice him today to get him more rest time. He could have practiced, but I chose not to have that happen just to get him more rest. “He did a lot of reps (Tuesday) and we pulled him back at the end of practice. It started getting a little bit tight on him.” Cowan suffered a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament against Washington and didn’t return until he led UCLA to its victory against Cal on Saturday. Cowan missed some of Tuesday’s practice, then walked gingerly down some stairs long after practice to talk to reporters. Dorrell said Cowan was fatigued on Tuesday, a sentiment echoed by Cowan. No one said anything about fatigue on Wednesday. By Jill Painter STAFF WRITER Starting quarterback Patrick Cowan didn’t practice Wednesday – he didn’t even participate in drills with the other quarterbacks – raising obvious questions about the health of his right knee. What was even more telling was that true freshman Chris Forcier practiced with the second team, a day after quarterbacking the scout team, and Cowan spent a considerable amount of time tutoring Forcier on the side. Dorrell said he’d travel with four quarterbacks “just in case something happens.” MacLeod Bethel-Thompson ran the first team on Wednesday. Osaar Rasshan is expected to be one of the four quarterbacks traveling to Pullman, but he didn’t get much work in on Wednesday. If Forcier were to play, he would have to burn his redshirt, something he said wouldn’t be a problem earlier this season. Jay Norvell, UCLA’s offensive coordinator, is assembling a game plan all of the quarterbacks can execute. Part of Cowan’s success is his ability to run, but there’s no telling how much he’d be able to do. “(Cowan) going to have some limitations, but hopefully the rest of the guys can come together for him,” Norvell said. “We hope he’s going to be fine for Saturday. He’s a pretty resilient guy. He’s found a way to get us in position to win two games. “We’ve got to prepare him the best we can with some of the physical limitations. I think he can play. We still have (Thursday), all day Friday and most of Saturday before we play.” Ben Olson is still out with a knee injury, so if Cowan wasn’t able to play, UCLA would go with a quarterback who’s never started on the road. “We’ve put in the things we needed to do that are thing all the guys can do,” Norvell said. “We’ll be smart with certain things.” Dorrell had his assistant coaches step aside for a bit after practice, while he had a discussion with players in the post-practice huddle. Players agreed with the message. “He wanted to keep our focus more than anything,” Rodney Van said. “He felt our focus lacked a little bit. As a senior group, we all noticed it, and we addressed it. We need to practice like we did for Cal.” “Practice was not up to our standards,” Shannon Tevaga said. “Focus was the main thing we talked about.” Linebacker Christian Taylor (concussion, seizure) has not been cleared by doctors and will not play against Washington State. … Safety Chris Horton walked off the field holding his right hand. Dorrell said he sustained a cut. … UCLA will travel with just five defensive tackles to Pullman. … Defensive end Thomas Blake (bruise above the knee) didn’t practice for the second consecutive day. … Brian Price is expected to start at defensive tackle with Jess Ward out. Dorrell is focused Bruin bits Stanford loses Evans Stanford running back Jason Evans will miss the rest of the season with an injured left knee, becoming the latest Cardinal running back sidelined this year. Evans tore his ACL in last Saturday’s 21-20 victory at Arizona, when he rushed for a career-high 78 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.
