first_imgLeeds are breathing easier after finding a ready-made replacement for runaway PNG international Segeyaro, snapping up Parcell.Segeyaro was expected back at Leeds pre-season training in January but told the club he would not return from Australia and see out the final two years of his UK contract.However, Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington said they would still require a hefty transfer fee from NRL clubs for Segeyaro – a situation he did not expect to change for the next two years.Leeds recently proposed a STG250,000 ($A427,000) fee for the ex-Penrith rake, who has been linked to NRL champions Cronulla.”The situation with James Segeyaro has not changed even though we have signed Matt Parcell,” Hetherington told The Yorkshire Post newspaper.”James Segeyaro remains on our register and on the (England governing body) RFL’s register as well and he may well remain for the next two years.”He will only be off that at the expiry of his contract but he remains on the transfer list and is available to anybody who makes an acceptable offer.”Segeyaro initially joined Leeds on loan from Penrith in July, helping them win nine of their last 10 matches and retain their Super League status.He signed a two-year contract in September, even removing a get-out clause in his Leeds contract.However, Segeyaro revealed after an off-season break he had been homesick at Leeds and did not want to leave Australia.Leeds moved to soften the blow of Segeyaro’s departure by snapping up Parcell.”He has a genuine interest in coming to England,” Hetherington said.”We have got someone who really wants to be here and who is going to be popular with the fans, players and everyone else.”He is coming into the prime of his career and is fully committed to being part of us for three years and, hopefully, longer than that.”last_img read more

first_imgApart from sending a powerful message to the Australian Rugby Union, who are weighing up whether to cut the Rebels or Western Force from next year’s competition, the 19-17 win in Melbourne has also breathed life into the season.With a record 10 straight derby wins to their credit, the Brumbies seemed to be cruising to Australian conference honours for the second year in a row.Queensland’s drought-breaking 47-34 success against South African franchise, the Kings has trimmed the Brumbies’ conference lead to seven points, while the Force – with a game in hand on the pacesetters – are only eight points adrift.The NSW Waratahs are also now just two wins shy of the Brumbies, who play the Hurricanes in Napier on Friday night.With Australian sides a collective none from 12 against New Zealand opposition so far in 2017, suddenly the pressure is on the Brumbies to quickly rediscover their form or risk losing control of their finals destiny.last_img read more

first_imgIt is very contradictory what has happened in Barça. The dismissal of Valverde and the signing of Setién generated enormous expectations among the fans, which maintains their faith in the Cantabrian. Nevertheless, the costumes already admit that there is a lack of depth in the game and the coach’s statements after the Valencia game liked little.Barça have a relatively affordable calendar next month before facing the knockout stages of the Champions League against Naples. He will play in the Cup against Leganés and in the League against Levante at Camp Nou. Then he could face the quarterfinals of the Cup and a League match at Villamarín. Finally, and before Naples and the Bernabéu, Eibar will be measured. The team is on time (less and less) to rebuild. But Setién and the costumes are required. “Likewise, the players do not interpret some things well,” Quique Setién said in the Mestalla press room after losing his first game as Barça coach. It was not a haughty phrase. Quique also admitted that “we are not explaining them well”. But yes It was the first demonstration that the message of the Cantabrian technician is not coming clearly to the dressing room. And that is a giant problem. Much more when we are in the second week of Quique on the bench of Barça. Any wardrobe is usually receptive to the message transmitted by a new coach in the first few days. The arrival of a new boss is a stimulus. It was important that the first two or three ideas collapse. And it is costing.It is also surprising the radicality with which Setién has arrived at the Barça dressing room. Where everyone imagined a coach who followed in the footsteps of cruising, with a fast, fun, electric and risky football, open at the ends, has found a conservative team. Barça does not risk the ball but, there is more, he has turned the drawing around like a sock. Of the 4-3-3 of Valverde that became 4-4-2 when the Catalans defended, the team has reinvented itself with a 3-1-4-2 in which 50 percent of the passes are given by three behind and the midfielder and in which, above all, the team has lost the oremus in the defensive balance. Valencia scored two goals but could do much more.last_img read more

first_imgThe one who was president of Real Valladolid in 1983, Pedro San Martín López, died this Friday at 85 years of age due to a fall, as reported in an official statement ‘Bodegas de Alberto’, the company he presided over, as reported by EFE. As president, San Martín lasted only three months, just the summer ones, those of the signings, a time when together with Ramón Martínez, then blanquivioleta technical secretary, the club took over the Hiring of Cendoya, Sala, Moyano, Aracil, Peña, Fonseca and Jesús Ángel López. Later, after winning Real Sociedad 4-1, he resigned on September 20, 1983 and was named Mariano Hernández, provisionally, before Gonzalo Alonso de Paz assumed, again, three more years after having been president already between 1978 and 1982.It must be remembered, however, that the transfers of the team that he won the League Cup in 1984 they were under the presidency San Martín.

first_imgIt is the prestigious newspaper L’Equipe who warns of the situation on its website. “Pogba can unilaterally terminate his contract with United. FIFA law allows it. “ The French newspaper deepens in the news advanced by AS, Pogba’s intention to end up playing for Madrid this summer, just when United intends to renew him. Until now, Pogba has always remained calm although there have already been two attempts to sign him by Madrid (2016 and 2019). This summer should not be different, but it is true that the Law would allow it, in effect, to unilaterally break with United upon payment of an indemnity which, in all cases, would be much lower (for L’Equipe, between 50 and 60 million) than the amount that United would request from Madrid for a transfer.There is an article in the FIFA Player Transfer Statute that underpins the situation. It is 17: “Consequence of the termination of contracts without just cause.” But first it is important to understand that Pogba’s contract is no longer in what is called the “protected period”. This is, according to the Statutes, the first three years of the contract if the player signed by the entity (in this case, United) before the age of 27. Pogba is already on that assumption, as he signed in 2016 with the English. Break in that protected period if it has serious economic and sports consequences for the player. Returning to article 17, which enables Pogba to unilaterally break after these first three years, it indicates that compensation must be paid, calculated according to a series of parameters, such as the years remaining in the player’s contract, the salary they have and the own club’s own estimate of what they may lose in terms of advertising contracts. Pogba has one year left with United, until 2021, but he signed a clause in 2016 according to which the English club can extend it one more year unilaterally. According to L’Equipe, a winger also contrasted by AS, the player is not now in that tough position, nor would Madrid be in favor of forcing so much, but it is a door that opens, Well, in all cases, the estimate is that the compensation that Pogba would have to paying (actually, Madrid) would always be less than £ 100 million in which, according to reports, United is thinking of pricing the world champion. Last summer he asked for 180 million.last_img read more
