Dortmund flexing their muscles, Sancho must stay

first_imgJadon Sancho is valued at £108m by Borussia DortmundKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |  Borussia Dortmund are flexing their muscles in their efforts to keep England forward Jadon Sancho at the club.In the club’s pre-season training-camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, the 2012 German Champions sporting director Michael Zorc announced the surprising news.“We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season,” Zorc commented. He called the decision “final”, adding, “I think that answers all the questions.”The 20-year-old forward will stay with coach Lucien Favre’s squad for the 2020/2021 season. Almost casually, Zorc mentioned that the Black and Yellows secretly extended the striker’s contract until 2023.“Last summer, we adjusted Jadon’s salary to match the development of his performances. So, in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then,” Zorc said.Capped 11 times for England, Sancho had been the main target for Premier League side Manchester United. The German side said any possible deal had to be fixed before the team travels to Switzerland.Reports suggested that Dortmund wanted 120 million Euros for Sancho. Affected by the COVID-19 crisis, United unsuccessfully tried to lower the price.Rumors broke of Dortmund having to sell Sancho for financial reasons. Sancho joined the side in 2017 for 7.8 million coming from Manchester City’s under 23s.The news about Sancho and his prolonged contract underlines why Dortmund has been sticking to their guns in respect to the 120-million euro fee, which United either couldn’t afford or regarded as unrealistic.The perhaps artificial deadline might leave space for further speculation, but Dortmund’s stance appears final.The announcement not only addresses the club’s demand to have undisturbed preparations for the 2020/2021 season but underlines Dortmund’s future ambitions. The decision increases the pressure on coach Favre to challenge national rival Bayern Munich and do better in continental competitions such as the Champions League.Further, the decision might be an appropriate answer to former Bayern president Uli Hoeness and former German international Lothar Matthaeus.Both have accused Dortmund of a misleading transfer policy.Over the space of many years, Borussia has signed young promising players like Ousmane Dembele, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Erling Haaland, Achraf Hakimi, and Sancho.Behind the deals always stood the intention to sell the top-talents to bigger clubs later and make a significant profit.2018 World Cup winner Dembele joined Barcelona for 105 million, while Aubameyang went to Arsenal for 64 million.Hoeness and Matthaeus said Dortmund wouldn’t win any titles as players are seen as speculation objects from the start. They therefore lack identification and only concentrate on their interests.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

SW Florida Man Drives Tractor Across U.S. to Support Wounded Veterans

first_imgStoltzfus adds, “The tractor brings attention. It’s a weird looking thing along the road and I always said, ‘the camper is our billboard’.”He explains that the tractor’s patriotic design typically encourages veterans and police officers, some of whom are dealing with PTSD, to connect with him. “They’re taught to hide their emotions, suck up and move on,” says Stoltzfus, who is not a veteran. Furthermore, “I have a love for people. I’m sensitive, especially when they’re hurting. When I see someone hurting, I hurt.”This was Stoltzfus’ third trip of its kind.As he addressed the crowd gathered in front of a restaurant, which included several wounded heroes, he thanked them for their support and the veterans who made sacrifices for others. A 72-year-old Sarasota man ended a 5,500-mile journey on Saturday that was completed entirely on a tractor.Hundreds of people gathered to welcome home and pay tribute to C. Ivan Stoltzfus, who rode his 1948 John Deere Model A for six months semi-cross country, going from Maryland to Montana and then back to Florida, all to raise money and awareness for wounded warriors.He says, “Any parking lot I pull in, gas station I pull in, a number of veterans, policemen even come and just say ‘thank you for what you’re doing’.”Using mainly back roads while avoiding highways, Stoltzfus crossed the country at 10 mph. A camper which was pulled by the tractor advertised the trip’s organizer, Operation Second Chance, in addition to Stoltzfus’ mission, “Across America for Wounded Heroes.”Operation Second Chance is a Maryland-based aid organization that helps wounded veterans, particularly those who are living with post traumatic stress disorder.last_img read more

He gets no respect, no respect at all. Critics say his time is too slow and his numbers are too low.Doug O’Neill, of course, isn’t on board. He trains the unbeaten champion two-year-old male of 2015, winner of an Eclipse Award in that category and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in his last start on Oct. 31, his third straight Grade I victory and his fourth graded stakes win from five career starts.Still, there are three horses listed ahead of him in Daily Racing Form’s Derby Watch as the countdown dwindles below 72 hours for the son of Uncle Mo’s three-year-old debut in Monday’s Grade II San Vicente Stakes at seven furlongs.“We’re just eager to see him compete at a high level on Monday and let that speak for itself,” said O’Neill, not in the least nonplussed by naysayers. “That’s what I love about this game, though; everyone has an opinion.“I don’t always agree with people. Whenever you read something negative about your own horses, it’s like somebody saying something about your family members, so it does make you pause for a bit, but if he runs a big race Monday, we can write our own story.“I actually don’t mind flying under the radar. I just want to keep flying.”O’Neill’s stance is remindful of Lincoln’s when he told members of his Cabinet who criticized Grant for over-imbibing:“I’m going to find out what he drinks and give it to all my Generals.”In addition to the attractive racing card, Santa Anita will celebrate Presidents’ Day with another of its popular Dollar Days. Draft beers, hot dogs and sodas will be available for a buck apiece. First post time is 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.OM, BOLO IN GRADE II ARCADIA STAKES SATURDAYOm has been a gem of consistency in a career of 10 races, winning five, with one second and two thirds for Dan Hendricks, who trains the four-year-old son of Munnings for the Sareen Family Trust.Om is the 7-5 morning line second choice to continue his steady run in Saturday’s Grade II Arcadia Stakes at a mile on grass, a race Hendricks hopes will lead to the Grade I, $400,000 Frank E. Kilroe Mile on March 12.“He’s been progressing since he came back last year, and I look forward to our mile turf races this year,” Hendricks said. “I think he’ll fit real well. He can be on the lead or just off it. The way he’s finally matured and started relaxing really helps him.“He’s either going to be way out in front, or just a little in front, because we can keep up as much as Gary (Stevens) wants.“We’ll be close to Obviously. It’s a matter of how they go the first part. The two of us are definitely the speed of the race, and it will be interesting to see how Om does against a classy older horse like Obviously.“It will be a different type of race for Om.”Meanwhile, Carla Gaines is hopeful that Bolo runs to his works in the Arcadia, his first race since last July 4 in the Grade I Belmont Derby. The four-year-old Temple City colt won the Eddie Logan at one mile last Dec. 27.“He’s been away but he’s had some good works,” Gaines said. “He went through the whole Triple Crown thing, traveling and what-not, so we freshened him up and he’s back.”Bolo was third in the Santa Anita Derby and an eventful 12th in the Kentucky Derby before winning an allowance race at Santa Anita last May 29.The Arcadia field: Om, Gary Stevens, 7-5; Cape Wolfe, Rafael Bejarano, 6-1; Yes Yes Yes, Brice Blanc, 20-1; Bolo, Flavien Prat, 4-1; and Obviously, Mike Smith, 6-5.Big Cazanova and Prospect Park were scratched.TARA’S TANGO STRETCHES OUT IN SANTA MARIATara’s Tango was third by a neck in the seven furlong Santa Monica Stakes on Jan. 23, but Jerry Hollendorfer is optimistic that the four-year-old daughter of Unbridled’s Song can successfully go two turns when she runs in Saturday’s Grade II Santa Maria Stakes for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles.The Hall of Fame trainer bases that faith on his filly’s game second by a nose to StellarWind in the Grade II Summertime Oaks at 1 1/16 miles at Santa Anita last June.Trained by John Sadler, Stellar Wind would go on to earn an Eclipse Award as outstanding older female of 2015.“We feel she can stretch out, based on her second to Stellar Wind,” Hollendorfer said.The Santa Maria: Star Act, Tyler Baze, 15-1; Gas Total, Flavien Prat, 6-1; Birdatthewire, Mike Smith,5-2; Big Break, Edwin Maldonado, 20-1; Kyriaki, Rafael Bejarano, 12-1; Living the Life, Gary Stevens, 6-1; Yahilwa, Joe Talamo, 7-2; and Tara’s Tango, Martin Garcia, 2-1.BONNET LEADS SANTA ANITA JOCKEYS WITH 17 POINTSSanta Anita’s jockeys led from start to finish in last night’s 49th annual charity basketball game against Holy Angels Elementary School at La Salle High School in Pasadena, winning 43-34 under the direction of Coach Kurt Hoover of TVG.“We led throughout and were always in control,” said Hoover, coaching the riders for the 15th consecutive year. The riders led at halftime, 28-15.Newcomer Chester Bonnet led the riders with 17 points, followed by Drayden Van Dyke with 11; Kent Desormeaux’s son, Josh, with seven; Omar Figueroa with four; and Kent and Edwin Maldonado with two each.Kayla Stra, Tiago Pereira and Bruno Panicucci played but did not score.“It could not have been any better,” said Nancy Dollase, who chaired the event for the ninth straight year. “It was a packed house. We’re looking forward to our 50th next year.”Proceeds benefit Holy Angels athletic program, the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund and the Eye on Jacob Foundation. The game was sponsored by Thoroughbred owner J. Paul Reddam’s CashCall and Santa Anita Park.FINISH LINES: Leading rider Rafael Bejarano has been suspended three days (Feb. 21, 25 and 26) for careless riding on All That Heat in Sunday’s first race . . . Prospect Park, winner of the Grade III La Jolla Handicap last August, was scratched from Saturday’s Grade II Arcadia Stakes at one mile on turf to run in an allowance race at a mile and a sixteenth on the main track Sunday in preparation for his major goal, the $1 million Santa Anita Handicap on March 12. “Sunday’s race is ideal for his comeback,” said Cliff Sise Jr., who trains the son of Tapit for owners/breeders Marty and Pam Wygod. “We’re trying to set him up for the Santa Anita Handicap. He’s training well. I don’t want Sunday’s race to take a lot out of him, but I want him to run good, too.” . . . Gary Sherlock has Lost Bus ticketed for the $100,000 Irish O’Brien Stakes at about 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course on March 19. “There’s the Grade III Las Flores the next day, but it’s also $100,000, so I may as well run her against Cal-breds for the same purse,” the trainer reasoned . . . Richard Baltas had every confidence Jose Verenzuela could get the job on 7-1 shot Tale of Papa Nick in Thursday’s fifth race, and he was right. The five-year-old California-bred daughter of Papa Clem hadn’t raced since last Aug. 28, but won the $58,000 allowance race at about 6 ½ furlongs on the hillside turf course by a comfortable 2 ½ lengths for owner/breeder Nick Cafarchia. “Jose had been working the horse and I told him she had some issues in the gate,” Baltas said. “He did the right thing. You’ve got to ride those hungry guys.” . . . Agent Tony Matos has Martin Garcia booked to ride Sham Stakes winner Collected for Bob Baffert in the Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park on Monday . . . Hall of Fame jockey and three-time Kentucky Derby winner Kent Desormeaux and his wife, 31-year-old jockey Rosie Higgins, have 5,713 career wins between them, thanks to Rosie’s first-ever victory from only her fourth mount in Thursday’s second race aboard favored Blue Law ($4.40) for trainer Bob Hess Jr. “I wasn’t worried,” Rosie said. “I just didn’t want them to close the door on me. Last time, I hung in there and Kent told me, ‘Don’t be hanging there too long,’ but this time, I knew I had enough horse. My very first race, I was stuck back there for a bit, but I knew I had horse this time. He just exploded (winning by three lengths). Hopefully, this helps my career a little bit. I understand that I’m new, still green and what trainers think, too, because I’ve been in that situation. Hopefully, this builds my career and I keep moving up.” Kent, meanwhile, played second fiddle Thursday despite his 5,712 career wins. “Just call me Mr. Higgins,” he said.

first_img2/2/2/2 TRAINER QUOTES KEITH DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, WINNER: “Did I have any doubts as they were going up to the gate? No doubt, I had doubts! We had a good pace to run at in the San Felipe, but not a really fast pace. Today, we had a great pace scenario and he took full advantage. For me, this is like a dream. I mean, the (Kentucky) Derby is what everybody in this business dreams of. I think we’ll probably come in (to Churchill Downs) right on top of the race, maybe ship in on Monday or Tuesday.” MIKE SMITH, DANZING CANDY, FOURTH: ​”Well he [Exaggerator] was quite a bit quicker than we hoped, of course, but we kind of thought that would happen today. I was hoping he’d really take to the mud, to be honest with you, as long as I had him up underneath me he was okay but as soon as I had to let up and run along I felt like I was on roller skates out there. He just didn’t grab quite a hold of it the way we hoped.” JOCKEY QUOTES WHEN ASKED IF HE THOUGHT EXAGGERATOR CAN BEAT NYQUIST NEXT TIME: “We haven’t been able to beat him, what five (actually three) times? I don’t know if we can or not.”             WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE FAMILY DYNAMIC OF HAVING HIS BROTHER RIDE FOR HIM: “I would say we have a very frank relationship. If I feel a certain way about something, I don’t hold anything back, and the same for him. I’m not sure I’d talk to a Mike Smith the way I talk to Kent. We’re just very upfront about everything and express ourselves fully.” NOTES: The winning owners are Matt Bryan (Big Chief Racing) of Ft. Worth; Head of Plains Partners; Rocker O Ranch, and Keith Desormeaux of Maurice, La. WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE ADDED DISTANCE OF THE KENTUCKY DERBY: “Yes, the way he finished today and the way he galloped out…If we get a fast pace, and we should, yes, I don’t think there’s any problem with it.” RONNY ORTOWSKI, PART OWNER, EXAGGERATOR, WINNER: “Kent just rode him perfect. It was a real good race. He’s a mud horse, and I had all the confidence in the world. He was feeling good this morning.” -more- GARY STEVENS, MOR SPIRIT, SECOND: “He warmed up great and left the gate wrong, and we got hit by the first wave of water and mud going into the first turn, he slipped with me and started lunging. He came off the bridle, and the first thing I said was, ‘This is going to be a long race.’ When Kent came by me, he actually tried to go with him – he sort of re-ignited again, but he sort of just looked after himself. I’m real proud of him to run second.” GARY SHERLOCK, UNCLO LINO, THIRD: “The track didn’t make him run any better but I wasn’t worried about it. The biggest thing was to let him run. He ran perfect, that’s what we had in mind. The only thing that fooled me was that Iron Rob didn’t send! Uncle Lino made the lead and just got run down by two pretty good horses, that’s about it.“My next move? I have no idea.” KENT DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, WINNER: “Well, if he shows up the first Saturday in May like he did today . . . he was ultra-confident today. He’s so mature and he walked to the gate like an old pony. He left there quiet and comfortable and I think that’s the difference, when a horse lets you drive and they’re not man-handling themselves. He reminded me of Texas Red.“He’s that caliber of horse and it’s extra special to be with Keith, and we don’t even talk too much, it’s all quite understood. All he said in the paddock was, ‘Kent, I’m telling you that I’ve never seen this horse so confident.’ When I galloped off once I was on the track, he took to the track like a duck to water. He never missed a beat and he showed it winning today.“I don’t think it has soaked in yet, I’m pretty much in shock. I’m just going to pray that unlike Texas Red, we make it there.“He was the fourth horse that I rode in the mud today and the others felt like they had ice skates on. Exaggerator felt like he had track shoes on. He really liked the going and I think that was part of his incredible effort today. He enjoyed the mud.“I don’t know (if he can beat Nyquist); we’ll find out Derby Day. I heard two people say that Nyquist couldn’t handle Mohaymen. When I tried to run with him in the San Vicente and he went twenty-two and change I thought I was going to go by him like he was tied to a pole but he wouldn’t let me by. That is a very good horse.” -30-last_img read more

The Vancouver Sun: First Nation chiefs head to Ottawa in opposition of Site C

first_imgThe delegation has yet to meet with the cabinet ministers they intended to, including Prime Minister Stephan Harper, but have managed to sit down with Prince George-Peace River MP Bob Zimmer and Senator Yonah Martin.They have however met with many opposition leaders, including NDP leader Tom Mulcair, Green leader Elizabeth May, Liberal MP Joyce Murray and several other senators.You can read the entire Vancouver Sun article here.With files from the Vancouver Sun Advertisement West Moberly First Nation chief, Roland Willson told the Vancouver Sun that if the federal government approves the project, the delegation won’t hesitate to take the decision to the Supreme Court.The provincial and federal government is expected to make an announcement on their decision by October 22, at which point, one of three outcomes will become the end result; an environmental certificate for the project is issued, the certificate is denied, or an order will be issued that further assessment is required.The group is expecting the federal government will find themselves in opposition of the project, as the federal/provincial joint review panel has already determined that the dam is likely to cause adverse effects on the land and subsequently fishing opportunities and other First Nation practices. It also found that B.C. Hydro has not fully demonstrated the need for the project on the timetable set forth.- Advertisement -Victoria has argued that both the region’s growing population and the gas/mining industries are in serious need for this type of relatively clean hydroelectric energy.The proposed dam and 1,100-megawatt hydroelectric generating station is slated for the Peace River, which if constructed, is reported to result in 86 kilometers of flooding and the destruction of farmland and wildlife habitat.While many chiefs hold strong opposition to the project, they’ve also gone on record to say they’re interested in contributing to other smaller projects, including wind, solar and geothermal power.Advertisementlast_img read more

10 months agoHowe admits Defoe talks planned over Bournemouth future

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Howe admits Defoe talks planned over Bournemouth futureby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits he plans talks with Jermain Defoe about his future.Crystal Palace and Sheffield United have been reported as potential loan suitors for the England international, while Defoe’s former club Sunderland have also shown an interest. Asked whether Defoe would be part of his squad after the January transfer window, Howe replied: “It’s a difficult one to answer.“I couldn’t give an absolute clear black and white answer to a lot of the players in the squad. The ones who aren’t playing regularly are very keen for football.“I will have to sit down with Jermain and have that conversation.“He is someone we hold in such high regard and has done such a great job here in many different ways.“Even before the game against Chelsea, he was talking to Lys (Mousset) and giving Lys his experience and guidance. That for me is like gold dust.“He has trained very well, his attitude and conduct has been first-class. Let’s wait and see.” last_img read more

I like his attitude. He is good for the team atmosphere.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
