first_imgMay 1968 is not one more month in the history of France. It was the students who started the revolts, but this discontent was gradually joined by all sectors of society. Each group had its own objective of the protest and football set its sights on the French Football Federation (FFF).The former madridista gave a good account of this discomfort among the footballers Raymond Kopa, in 1963. On July 4 of that year he published an article in the France Dimanche demanding minimum rights for footballers. It was not the first time that the greatest players had fought for all their teammates. Two years earlier, the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) had been created with Just Fontaine or Eugen N’Jo Lea at the head, top-level players. The title of Kopa’s writing, Players are slaves, already hinted at the intensity of his words: “Today, in the middle of the 20th century, the professional soccer player is the only human being who can be sold and bought without having his opinion”. This message made a huge impact and was a great inspiration for what would be unleashed in ’68.On May 22, just over a month after the first protest of this time, soccer raised its voice. Amateur level footballers, some Red Star professionals and, especially, journalists from the Miroir du Football, a magazine close to the French Communist Party and the movement that was taking place in Paris, took over the headquarters of the FFF at number 60 bis, a facade through which all tourists who want to go from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower pass. , or vice versa, by the straightest line possible. To the literary phrases “let’s be realistic, ask for the impossible” or “forbidden to prohibit” that served as a slogan that spring, sport contributed the phrase “Soccer for footballers”, which shouted a banner hanging from balcony to balcony on the first floor and which Platini had as leitmotiv during his UEFA presidency. Far from the level of tension and violence that existed on other fronts of the city, that was a peaceful occupation. Pierre Delaunay, secretary general, and George Boulogne, national instructor, were locked in a room. Apart from the aforementioned banner, the phrase was also hung “The Federation, owned by 600,000 footballers” on the second floor. Meanwhile, at street level, leaflets of the Soccer Players Action Committee Program were distributed with the demands.“Like the workers occupy their factories. Like the students occupy their Faculties. Why? To give back to the 600,000 French soccer players and their millions of friends what belongs to them: soccer, which the Federation pontiffs have expropriated to serve their selfish interests to obtain economic benefit “. Then five main points of its manifestation were listed. One of the most important was 3, in which License B was denounced. This rule forced footballers to be linked to the club with which they signed their first professional contract until the age of 35 in appalling conditions, sometimes with a salary below the minimum. Something unimaginable in 2020.In point 5, and in relation to what was described in the previous paragraph, Kopa’s words were mentioned years ago: “(The Federation) mocks the human dignity of the professionals by maintaining the slave contracts denounced by Kopa and whose illegality was recognized, a year ago, by Sadoul”. The latter was the president of the League.The Federation takeover ended when the Grenelle Accords were signed, for which the minimum wage was raised by 35%. Soccer also made great strides and the hated License B was canceled. Cruyff or Bosman would fight years later in the same line of defense of the rights of soccer players.last_img read more

first_imgBarcelona did not take long to set eyes on him and at just ten years old, in the 2015-16 season, he became part of La Masia. He soon found his perfect habitat, since the style they teach in the culé quarry is perfectly adapted to their conditions.Although he is only 15 years old, his renewal is one of the priority issues among those responsible for Barcelona’s grassroots football. Ilias (his expansion is already agreed) and he, both from 2004, are the greatest promises of Barcelona in his year. For this reason, just as it happened last year with Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba, the club wants to tie them. They want to finally stop the talent drain that had taken place in recent years (Dani Olmo, Eric García, Sergio Gómez …). At the moment, stopping that happens, among other things, to retain Gavi … Pablo Pérez Gaviria (Los Palacios, 2004) is the hope that Barcelona has in its youth team to give continuity to that game model so characteristic of all Blaugrana teams. Better known as Gavi, this midfielder is pure Barça DNA: always in contact with the ball, very technical, the whole game must go through his boots. Follow the path that Xavi and Iniesta once traveled.He started playing at the Liara Balompié, a Los Palacios club, in which Betis’ interest aroused. Although currently the goal is not his main virtue (although he has a good finish) in Benjamin A he scored 96 goals in a single season, a clear sign that there was a special talent there.last_img read more

You can not drive a particular person to lengthen the contract past what you’ve signed. It could undergo negotiations with the gamers themselves. The golf equipment would have to negotiate with the gamers the extensions of these contracts and that occurs as a result of there is an acceptance by each events. In different phrases, it could possibly be the case that a staff had ten gamers who didn’t need to proceed. “ Though for years it has been studied how to give a return to the Second B mannequin, the implementation will trigger the subsequent season to descend from stage greater than half of the class. This is one other matter that worries David Jiménez: “And never solely that. There will likely be a whole bunch of Third Groups down to a fifth stage.

Fairly a bit. A minimum of six or seven occasions I bought suspended with out pay for arguing with him. It’s not at all times simple to be within the locker room after a recreation and hear that you simply didn’t play something. I couldn’t swallow. Later, he confirmed me that he cared and even appreciated that he was like that so long as I used to be not out of line, however he continued to advantageous me to present who was in cost. “ Giggs additionally acknowledged that the identical yr that David Beckham went to SpainHe was additionally in a position to go away, for the reason that marketing campaign began in a really low manner, though fortunately for him all the pieces ended up going nicely: “I didn’t begin nicely within the 2003-2004 season.

first_img BERNARD’S CONTRIBUTION Jamaica, under the leadership skills of Marva Bernard, has managed to get their own ‘home’ as well as numerous corporate bodies putting up their cash and kind to support netball. Money is still short, thus arranging and travelling to other ranked nations to play ‘Tests’ happens rarely, and is due to a great extent on the generosity of the other nations. Faced with that reality, one would think that Netball Jamaica would be very interested in keeping squad members playing top local netball regularly, and would be actively encouraging these squad members to play week after week. No matter what spin is put on the reason for the rule, the bald fact is that the rule makes no sense and has got to be rescinded. The fans of Jamaica’s netball, and the public in general, can force the removal of this rule … if they want. The IAAF’s woes continue with major sponsor Adidas withdrawing from their contractual support of the beleaguered organisation, mainly because of the continuing revelations regarding corruption and illegal activity of the principals of the organisation. The Dick Pound-led investigation is not over, not by a long shot. Keep watching this space. The past president of Netball Jamaica has received numerous awards and praise for her leadership skills while being a ten-year president of the sport of netball in Jamaica. These plaudits re her leadership skills are well deserved. Her successor, Dr Paula Daley Morris, has promised a change in how the game in administered. I was hoping that I would have seen a change in the policy, particularly one that would have seen the nation have a realistic chance of changing our position in world netball, from ‘sometimes third, most times fourth’ to finalists and eventual champions. Alas and alack, that wish of us, (Jamaica) moving on up looks as distant as it always was. Mr Netball himself, Winston Nevers, has gone public with his concerns regarding a ‘rule’ that seems designed to stop teams that he coaches from dominating local netball. The thinking behind the implementation of this rule seems to be “stop Nevers from winning everything, so that we can justify keeping his skills away from the national programme”. A local radio programme recently highlighted the rule. As I understand it, teams playing in the national league can only have three members of the national squad playing for any one team during the competition. If a national representative (who happens to play for a team coached by Mr Nevers) does not want to play for a rival team, then that player is refused permission to play netball locally! Huh? So instead of allowing players selected to the national squad to play as much netball as possible, Netball Jamaica is happy with these players watching the game week after week! That thought is frightening, if the main aim of the rule is to sideline Nevers. As I understand sports of any kind, the participants need regular playing time in competition against their peers and against competition that is superior. Australia has just completed a three ‘Test’ clean sweep against England, as both sides continue engaging in ‘Test’ conditions against world-ranked opponents.last_img read more

first_imgVeteran athlete Ricardo Cunningham is hoping that his own self-drive and self-belief will help him to make the best of what is left of his time on the track. He has his sights set on a successful year in either the 800 metres or 400m hurdles this year. Thirty-six-year-old Cunningham is hoping that he will be able to make one last hurrah and qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. “I have been encouraged over the years to try the 400m hurdles. My personal best over the 400m is 46.20 seconds, and the 800m has given me a lot of strength, and this event (400m hurdles) is a combination of speed and strength. It’s just for me to work on putting both speed and strength together in order to improve over the hurdles,” he told The Gleaner. The former Racers Track Club athlete, now at Cameron Blazers, finished top of the field at the recent MVP Track and Field Classic. It was his second competitive 400m hurdles, and the many-time national 800m champion clocked 50.28 seconds, the third-fastest time of the night. Ansert Whyte (49.39) of Racers Track Club and his teammate, Javarn Gallimore (50.09), finished ahead of Cunningham. Cunningham explained that the aim is to “do whatever it takes to get in the top three at trials”. Despite being in what many would consider the twilight of an athlete’s career, Cunningham is aiming to outperform his younger rivals at the National Senior Championships in June. No doubt, it will be a much sterner test than his 800m pet event where he has a personal best of 1:47.14 minutes. “It’s a new event; it’s going OK. It requires a lot of technique, but I am enjoying it thus far. The focus hasn’t been shifted from the 800m as I am still preparing for both events. They go hand in hand.”last_img read more

first_img ‘grateful’ SOCHI, Russia (CMC): Lewis Hamilton took a giant leap towards his second straight Formula One drivers’ title, and third overall, when he won the Russian Grand Prix here yesterday. Starting from second on the grid, the 30-year-old Brit capitalised on the retirement of pole-sitter and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg after eight laps, to take the chequered flag in one hour, 37.11 minutes. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was five seconds behind in second, while Force India’s Sergio Perez snatched a surprise place on the podium. With his ninth victory of the season, Hamilton moved 66 points clear at the top of the drivers’ standings on 302 points, and now needs nine more points than the second-placed Vettel and two more than third-placed Rosberg at the next race in the United States to clinch the title. “I’ve been incredibly grateful to be where I am. I think today’s just a happy moment for me,” said Hamilton, whose paternal grandparents are Grenadian. “Yesterday, of course, when you qualify second and your target is to excel and over-deliver and when you under-deliver, of course it’s not a happy moment, but today I came here with a positive attitude, which I have at every race, and I think even in the last race – not all the races – I’ve been incredibly grateful for the car holding together.” Hamilton drove aggressively from the outset, but failed to get past Rosberg, who opened up a lead after the first lap. A smash-up shortly after saw the safety car come out, and when the race restarted on lap four, Rosberg was already experiencing problems with his throttle. With the car fading, Hamilton snatched the lead on lap seven and dominated the event with Vettel in pursuit. The victory was Hamilton’s second straight in Sochi following his triumph last year – and the 42nd of his career – tying him with Vettel for third on the all-time list. His victory also gave Mercedes the constructors’ title with three races left in the season.last_img read more
