Atlético suffers like this: stores, Tour, tickets, sponsorships …

first_imgAtlético lives with anguish, like the rest of Spanish clubs, the break in competition due to the crisis derived from COVID-19. From a sporting point of view, the team has a specific personalized training plan. But each day that passes is one more day of uncertainty for an entity that will have to rethink its immediate and short-term future. Although the main economic source of the entity is television income, the club also lives in other sectors that right now do not produce.Stores are an important source of income at Atlético. They have been closed for two weeks and it is not known when they will be open. Minimum will be one month. The official store that Atlético has in the Wanda Metropolitano has very good operations. It is crowded on game days, but during the year people do not stop going to pick up products from the Atletico club. Atlético is never in favor of offering data from its stores, but its billing is important and the damage is great. The Stadium Tour is also stopped. It is an activity that grows year after year. Waiting for the new Atlético museum to open in the Wanda Metropolitano, the Tour is one of the main tourist activities in the city of Madrid. A good economic amount that the club is also leaving to enter this month that at least will not have activity.Tickets are another source of income. It is not known when the competition will resume and whether it will be held open or closed. The Wanda Metropolitano usually registers large entries, both in the league competition and in the Champions League. In LaLiga the average is over 60,000 spectators. The club had already sold 3,000 seats for the next matchs to play at the rojiblanco stadium and we will have to see what happens with LaLiga. Valladolid, Alavés, Mallorca, Betis and Real Sociedad have yet to visit the rojiblanco stadium. Betis have a great pull and against Real Sociedad may be playing Atlético enter the Champions.Another issue that is also affected by this new situation is that of sponsorships.. Soccer is stopped, the Wanda Metropolitano shut down and is something new. You have to talk to the brands associated with the club about what is happening. The shops, the Stadium Tour, tickets, sponsorships … The hit is important. All add up so that the entity has a budget of over 500 million.last_img read more

Kane, a forbidden dream

first_imgHarry Kane sounded the alarms by flirting, in an interview on Sky Sports, with his possible departure from Tottenham. The striker acknowledged loving his club, but demanded a winning project to continue as team leader. A warning, however, that makes him hit a wall: he is the center striker with the highest market value in the world and, to top it all, he has a contract until June 2024. If you want to go out, you must plant. Premier League20113624 Real Madrid rules it outNeither was nor is nor will be on the list. As AS has learned, Harry Kane has never liked it on the noble floor of the Santiago Bernabéu. The club is working on a future signing of Kylian Mbappé and handles great reports of HaalandTherefore, a possible operation by the Tottenham striker is ruled out. Also, Zidane considers that English does not improve the level of Karim Benzema. As if that were not enough, Levy would cross again on the Florentine road, after operations such as Modric or Bale and the English tab is quite high. So you will not wear white.Harry Kane’s numbers Europa League31101 CompetitionMatchesGoalsAssists Who loves Kane?Having seen, anyone who wants to get the services of Kane must scratch his pocket. But what great teams in Europe need to get a striker in the coming months? He Barcelonais undoubtedly one of them, although Lautaro seems to be the chosen one and Neymar is always in the bedroom. He too NaplesAlthough his project does not seem to meet the demands of the English striker. Chelsea, United or City also lose bellows to be of the Premier League and for the love of ‘9’ to its colors.Two of the most possible alternatives today are the Bayern and the PSG. The first wants to continue to command in Germany and make a qualitative leap in Europe. Lewandowski, on scoring streak, already old. PSG, meanwhile, would tie an elite striker before the possible exit in the medium term of Kylian Mbappé and would meanwhile replace Cavani and Mauro Icardi. Furthermore, they both seem to have enough money to carry out a dizzying operation.DYLAN MARTINEZ & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Kane, one of the leaders of the English team.DYLAN MARTINEZ (REUTERS) Sterling25Manchester City160 Salah27Liverpool150 FA Cuptwenty123 The ten most valued players in the world Jadon SanchotwentyBorussia Dortmund130 A debt already settledIn the words of Harry Kane demanding a winning project hides a reproach to the club for not having invested enough in signings years ago. That message was already transmitted by Mauricio Pochettino after losing the Champions League final and it is clear: savings to finance investment in the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has ended up billing the team. From the 2019 winter market to July 2019 more than 500 days elapsed without making a single incorporation. In fact, the ‘spurs’ were the only club in the five major leagues that did not sign a footballer.Anyway, Daniel Levy has already assumed the debt of about 850 million euros and it is not for her that he is willing to transfer his footballers at a price. He already proved it with Eriksen and, what’s more, he will tie his players to the end so that the new stadium sees Tottenham on great nights. For this you need Kane and also level arrivals. Although his sale would leave a lot of money in the coffers of the club, there is no intention to let him out.Mike Hewitt & nbsp; (Getty Images) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Tottenham was more than a year without signing for the investment in the new stadium.Mike Hewitt (Getty Images) * Transfermarkt data Champions24twenty3center_img Antoine Griezmann29Barcelona120 Kane26Tottenham150 PlayerAgeTeamMarket value in € M * Leo Messi32Barcelona140 According to the estimates of the Transfermarkt portal, Harry Kane is the fourth player with the highest market value on the planet, only behind Neymar (€ 160M), Sterling (€ 160M) and Mbappé (€ 200M). So that, It is the most expensive ‘9’ with a wide difference to their pursuers: Firmino (90), Lukaku (85), Lautaro (80), Werner (80) or Haaland (80). For this reason, those who are interested in obtaining their services must pay an exorbitant amount, something unlikely due to the world crisis unleashed by the coronavirus.Also, Kane would bump into a road with a ruthless negotiator: Daniel Levy. There are thousands of stories starring the president of Tottenham, all with a common denominator: either a club puts a significant amount on the table or it will not let its players out. The last example is that of Christian Eriksen, who stayed last summer because the required figure was higher than logic for a player who only has one year left on his contract.Finally, the Danish midfielder managed to get out in winter, rumbo to Inter Milan for an amount close to 20 million euros. Although Levy was aware that he would not renew, he demanded a significant payment from the Italian team. Kane will not be lucky with that possible downgrade. In summer 2018, he got engaged for another six seasons with the club that saw him grow. Ending contract in 2024, he will not have the plus of being able to leave for free and will force the entity that wants him to break the bank.ANDREAS SOLARO & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Kane and Eriksen, in a match with Tottenham.ANDREAS SOLARO (AFP) Sadio Mané27Liverpool150 EFL Cup1253 Real Madrid has also suffered in his own flesh the intransigence of the president. Modric, in 2012, and Bale, in 2013, they declared in absentia to leave the club, but Levy only yielded when the white directive reached the required number. It also responds to a peculiar idiosyncrasy: it only lets its footballers go in the final stretch of the market. Thus, it takes the interested team out to the last euro for the last minute need. In his day, himself Mauricio Pochettino notice what they were up against: “Watch out, Daniel Levy bites“AGUILERA & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Gareth Bale arrived at Real Madrid at the last minute.AGUILERA (DAILY AS) Neymar28PSG160 Mbappétwenty-onePSG200 Kevin De Bruyne28Manchester City150 Levy’s heavy handThe one previously exposed with the figure of Christian Eriksen in between is just one of the hundred operations that have brought the negotiator upside down.

I asked him for five Tottenham jerseys. He said he would give them to me, but then Tottenham would pay less. for the transfer, since the € 21M they paid had to be subtracted from the value of the shirts. “last_img read more

Rooney frustrated by critics

first_imgLONDON (AP):Manchester United have only played three games this season and Wayne Rooney’s inability to score is already under scrutiny.That’s three games without even a shot on target for the striker.”I’ve experienced this before and the goals will come, I know that,” Rooney said. “I’ve had one bad game this season and everyone’s all over it. I know I’ve had that throughout my career, but hopefully, at the weekend I can get off the mark.”When United host Newcastle tomorrow, Rooney will be searching for his first competitive goal for United since April 4, making it a nine-game drought going back into last season.”I understand I have to be the one who’s going to lead that line for us and try and score the goals for us,” the centre forward said. “My mind’s clear. I know how to play the role. It’s just a case of getting the chances and taking them.”Fortunately for Rooney – following the departure of fellow forwards Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao in the offseason – others have chipped in with goals.New winger Memphis Depay contributed two in the 3-1 win over Bruges in the first leg of their Champions League playoff on Tuesday. Adnan Januzaj scored the only goal in the win over Aston Villa last week and an own goal gifted United an opening day victory over Tottenham in the Premier League.Rooney is only 19 goals from matching Bobby Charlton’s club scoring record of 249.”I know when I don’t play well and against Aston Villa I was below my standards,” the 29-year-old United captain said.CHELSEA CHAOSChelsea signed forward Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona ahead of Sunday’s trip to West Bromwich, providing a boost following a chaotic start to the season defined by setbacks on the field and the team doctor being demoted.Chelsea have opened their title defence by collecting one point from two games, including a loss at Manchester City, and were beaten in the Community Shield by Arsenal.West Brom have similarly only collected a point and lost 3-0 to Man City. Ominously for Mourinho, two of the previous three Chelsea managers have lost their jobs within days of a loss at West Brom: Andre Villas-Boas in March 2012 and Roberto Di Matteo eight months later.OUTFOXING RIVALSFour teams have won two out of two: Manchester rivals City and United, Liverpool and Leicester – the same Leicester which required a late surge to avoid relegation in May.There’s a long way to go but new manager Claudio Ranieri is defying gloomy forecasts about his capabilities more than a decade after his last job in England at Chelsea.Ahead of tomorrow’s match against Tottenham, Leicester signed Switzerland midfielder Gokhan Inler from Napoli.Leicester host a Tottenham side which has drawn one and lost one so far. Striker Harry Kane, who spent time on loan at Leicester in 2013 before becoming the scoring revelation of last season at Spurs, has failed to net this campaign.last_img read more

Amanda Nunes KOs Cyborg in 51 seconds, Jon Jones wins at UFC 232

first_imgAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk ‘Mia’: Rom-com with a cause a career-boosting showcase for Coleen Garcia Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Just six days after the UFC moved the entire 232 card from Las Vegas to the famous Forum south of downtown Los Angeles, Jones (23-1, 1 no-contest) closed the show with a methodical dismantling of Gustafsson (18-5). The bout was a rematch of Jones’ toughest fight, a thrilling decision in 2013 over Gustafsson.But in Jones’ first fight since completing his second drug-related suspension, the star picked apart Gustafsson with kicks in the first two rounds. He got a takedown in the third and finished the fight with several brutal shots to Gustafsson’s head on the ground.“It was always about being the champion again,” Jones said. It was never about the opponent, nothing personal. I’m just happy with my belt, and for now I want to go back to the gym and improve my game.”The UFC made the extraordinary decision to move its show 280 miles to California to keep Jones on the card. The former champion recently tested positive for low levels of a banned steroid, but California regulatory officials didn’t consider the result serious enough to keep the long-troubled star out of the octagon, while Nevada’s commission did.The 31-year-old Jones had fought only twice in the previous 47 months, losing an enormous chunk of his fighting prime due to his misbehavior. He held the UFC’s 205-pound title twice before, but had it stripped both times.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Nunes, the UFC’s bantamweight champion, made history when she moved up 10 pounds to challenge Justino (20-2), widely considered the world’s greatest female fighter. Nunes is the third fighter in UFC history to hold two title belts simultaneously, joining Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier.“I knew this was happening, I told you all!” Nunes said. “Cris is a great fighter, nothing but respect. It was an awesome opportunity to share the octagon with her. I’m very thankful to her for this. I’m the new ‘champ-champ.’ I said that before, and now I’m just achieving this dream.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissNunes (17-4) was thought to be an undersized underdog, but she seized her second title belt by overwhelming her fellow Brazilian. Nunes buckled Justino’s knees in the opening seconds, and she eventually knocked down Justino twice.She ended the fight spectacularly with an overhand right to the ear, putting Justino face-down on the canvas. Jones returned from his first doping suspension with a stoppage of Cormier in July 2017 to reclaim his light heavyweight title, but he lost the belt again after testing positive for steroids.A capacity crowd of 15,862 in Southern California watched another groundbreaking achievement by Nunes, the ferocious brawler who calls herself “The Lioness.” Nunes also knocked out Ronda Rousey in less than a minute two years ago.“I’m taking care of myself, working hard physically and mentally,” Nunes said. “I felt stronger in this division, more powerful, and continued to be very fast. I don’t know what comes next. Now I want to celebrate with my friends and family in Brazil.”Nunes’ punching power is often too much for her male sparring partners, and she carved up Justino with astonishing ease despite a size disadvantage. Justino had won 20 consecutive fights since her MMA debut in 2005, and she had dominated since the inception of the UFC’s 145-pound division, which was created largely as a showcase for Cyborg’s talent.Earlier, Australian featherweight prospect Alexander Volkanovski (19-1) won his 16th straight bout in the PPV opener, stopping veteran Chad Mendes with right hands in the second round of a back-and-forth bout. Michael Chiesa also won his welterweight debut with a second-round submission of former champ Carlos Condit, who lost his fifth straight fight.Former UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn tapped out for the first time in his MMA career, losing to Brazilian jiu-jitsu whiz Ryan Hall on a heel hook in the first round. Penn (16-13-2), an MMA pioneer who turned 40 this month, is 0-6-1 in his last seven fights since 2010.Despite the late move to LA, the UFC sold out the Forum after just six days of ticket sales.

DONEGAL HURLERS STEAMROLL POOR MONAGHAN SIDE

first_imgDonegal’s senior hurling team proved simply too strong for a poor Monaghan side at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny today.Ray Durack’s team made the running from the start and cantered away to finish on a scoreline of 3-18 to 1-6.Durack said later that he was pleased with how well his side hurled but admitted he was disappointed by how poor the visitors were. A very small crowd turned out to see the game.Next up for the Donegal team is the challenge of Tyrone.“We played very well at times today but I was disappointed at how poor Monaghan were.“But that shouldn’t take away from the number of scores we got.

REFUSE BOSS FINED €12,000 AND GETS SUSPENDED JAIL SENTENCE FOR ILLEGAL DUMPING

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: A leading Donegal waste disposal company boss has been fined €12,000 and received a suspended jail sentence of six months after being found guilty of illegal dumping.Ferrys is a major employer in Donegal.Jim Ferry, owner of Ferry Refuse, was also ordered to pay Donegal County Council a total of €30,750 in costs. Ferry, 55, was found guilty by Judge Paul Kelly after a three day trial at Letterkenny District Court.The case followed an extensive undercover investigation into Ferry’s illegal dumping activities at lands he owned at Deryreel in Falcarragh.The court heard that the father-of-six, who employs 60 people, has previous convictions for illegal dumping.Letterkenny District Court heard how officers from the council along with Gardai carried out a surveillance operation on lands belonging to Ferry.On June 10th, 2010, a large Ferry’s Refuse truck was seen dumping a large volume of waste into an open crater.Upon investigation it was found that more than 1,000 cupid metres of waste had been illegally dumped at the site.Dearn McClintock, Waste Regulation Officer with Donegal County Council, led the extensive investigation into the incident.It followed an anonymous tip-off by a member of the public who pin-pointed the dumping location to waste management officers.The court heard that at 5am Mr McClintock and other officers came across two men dumping household waste into a crater.When they identified themselves, two men in hi-viz jackets with the ‘Ferry Refuse’ on it, ran off into the distance and were not apprehended.Tis evidence was backed up by various other litter wardens on scene who were employed by Donegal County Council.The court was also shown a video which showed two men wearing hi-viz Ferry Waste jackets digging holes with a track digger and then dumping rubbish into them before covering them over.Later that day, another employee of Ferry’s Refuse, Paul Gallagher, approached council officials asking to have the vehicles back.The court also heard that Ferry, of Rossbracken, Manorcunningham, ignored an order to remove the remaining waste from the site and that it is still present there.The case was interrupted when a man entered the court and handed a letter to barrister for Mr Ferry, Sean Gillane, SC.The letter alleged that the man, an unnamed employee of Mr Ferry, was behind the illegal dumping and claimed he had been paid to do so by a competitor of the accused.The author of the letter was Marty McDermott who later gave evidence in court.McDermott claimed he was paid €5,000 to dump illegal waste on the lands of waste disposal boss Jim Ferry.Marty McDermott, 30, claims he took Ferry Refuse trucks on three different occasions to dump at Derryreel, Falcarragh in the summer of 2010.McDermott said he took the money to pay off debts €500,000 which he built up partially through gambling.McDermott was giving evidence in the trial of Jim Ferry who is charged with eight different offences of dumping illegal household waste.This is the third day of the trial.At the end of the first day before Judge Paul Kelly, a mystery man walked into court and handed in a letter saying he was responsible for the dumping.That man has turned out to be McDermott who was working as a rubbish lifter at the time for Mr Ferry.McDermott gave evidence today to say that he was the man behind the dumping.He claimed he was approached by a man saying he would receive €5,000 if he dumped a load of rubbish at Derryreel.He said he had been ordered to meet another man at a crossroads in Creeslough but that two men turned up.Between the three of them they dumped two loads of waste on the land at Derryreel.Richard Lyons, barrister for Donegal County Council, asked why he had waited until now to come forward.McDermott said he had been wracked with guilt and went to a priest who told him to go and see a solicitor.He did this but claimed the solicitor told him to steer clear of giving any evidence in the case.McDermott said he has never seen his accomplices since.“I have never seen those men since. I didn’t ask them their names. It’s not what you do. You don’t ask a man’s life story when you were doing what I was doing,” he said.Barrister Lyons asked McDermott why did he think he was offered such money to do this by the unidentified man.“He said he wanted leverage in Gaoth Dobhair …..to keep Jim out of his area. He said he wanted photos to get him out of that country,” said McDermott.The letter which McDermott left into court was red out by barrister Lyons.It explained how he had been supported by Ferry since he was a young man and couldn’t believe what he did.He explained how he went to see the priest and that solicitor Kieran O’Gorman told him to stay well away from the courts.“I never thought in my wildest dreams it would come to this. The solicitor told me I would have to pack my bags and leave town and the county because I am sol well known.“If you think this letter helps and saves my friends jobs,” the letter read.He denied claims put to him by Mr Lyons that Mr Ferry paid him the money.“He didn’t pay me,” said McDermott.Mr Lyons asked if it did not concern him that he was dumping a load of waste directly across the road form Mr Ferry’s mother’s home in broad daylight with plenty of noise going on.“No. I was just thinking of the money,” answered McDermott.Judge Paul Kelly retired to consider his verdict and returned to say he was satisfied that he believed Ferry was guilty of all eight charges.He said he found McDermott’s claims vague and unconvincing and that he did not believe him.He said he had considered sending Mr Ferry to jail considering he has previous convictions for similar offences but was conscious of his age and the fact that he was a major employer in the area.He fined Ferry a total of €12,000 for four different offences and also sentenced him to two consecutive terms of six months in prison but suspended each for a period of two years.REFUSE BOSS FINED €12,000 AND GETS SUSPENDED JAIL SENTENCE FOR ILLEGAL DUMPING was last modified: October 2nd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ferry Refuseillegal dumpingjailjim ferryJudge Peter Kellylast_img read more

BRITISH CLAIM TO DONEGAL LAND COULD COST COUNCIL MILLIONS OF EURO – CLAIM

first_imgSinn Féin Inishowen Councillor Jack Murray and local TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have raised their serious concerns with Donegal County Manager Seamus Neely over recent reports that the British Crown Estate claim to own the entire seabed of Lough Foyle.There are reports the British may challenge Donegal County Council’s plans to run an outflow pipe from the proposed Moville/ Greencastle sewerage scheme into the Lough at Carnagarve.Cllr Murray said: “Donegal County Council plans to build a wastewater treatment plant which will pump thousands of gallons of effluent into the scenic Carnagarve bathing waters. “Local residents and respected environmental experts are concerned that the location of the outflow pipe within the Lough Foyle estuary, will cause serious environmental problems in Lough Foyle.“For 23 years the local community has fought to have the proposed plant built north of Greencastle and have the outfall pipe pumped safely into coastal waters and not into the confines of Lough Foyle.“This has been determinedly resisted by the council and some local representatives”.Cllr Murray added: “But events have now taken a sharp turn with news that the British Crown Estate claims to own the entire seabed of Lough Foyle and that they may challenge Donegal County Council’s plans. “The Council had advertised the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Marine as the owner of the seabed when issuing the CPO (Compulsory Purchase Order. Now it is alleged that the Department knows nothing about a CPO”.He continued: “Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn and I have now written to the County Manager and the Council’s Director of Water and Environment Services seeking urgent clarification of the Council’s response to these reports.“In the face of well documented opposition, millions of taxpayer’s money has been spent on this project to date. We are very concerned that there is potential for millions more to be potentially wasted. As public representatives, we would find that to be indefensible.” BRITISH CLAIM TO DONEGAL LAND COULD COST COUNCIL MILLIONS OF EURO – CLAIM was last modified: April 5th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BRITISH CLAIM TO DONEGAL LAND COULD COST COUNCIL MILLIONS OF EURO – CLAIMlast_img read more

Simi teen admits slaying mom

first_img “He was very concerned about what his family, especially his sister and father, would have to endure if the case went to a jury trial,” he said. “Also, it was extremely important to him that he leave with the hope that maybe he could be released.” Ratner said Amico might be eligible for parole after 26 years, but that there is no guarantee. The former Royal High School student was 15 years old when he stabbed Reina Amico, 41, multiple times inside their Blackwall Drive home. The teenager was arrested at a relative’s home in Van Nuys several hours later.
