Eto’o names Yaya Toure as his best teammate, aside Messi

first_img At Inter Milan, he combined well will Sneijder to help the Italian giants win a treble in the 2009-10 season when they won the Champions League, Serie A, and the Coppa Italia. Xavi, now manager at Al Sadd, is often rated among the best Spanish players of all time. However, Xavi, who was his teammate at Barcelona where they won a treble the season before, did not make the Cameroonian’s cut. Together at Camp Nou, Eto’o and Xavi won two Champions League titles, four La Liga, one Copa del Rey and two Supercopa de Espana titles. Instead, he named four-time African Player of the Year Toure, who he believes is an unbelievable midfielder.Advertisement Samuel Eto’o has named Cote d’Ivoire’s Yaya Toure as his greatest teammate aside from Lionel Messi, overlooking Wesley Sneijder and Xavi Hernandez, among others. “Messi, Iniesta, Deco, Ronaldinho, Yaya Toure. It’s difficult to pick one. Apart from Messi? …Yaya Toure,” Eto’o told Goal. Yaya also stood tall when the list was narrowed down to the finest to have come from Africa. “Two of the greatest African players I’ve ever played with are Yaya Toure and Jay Jay Okocha,” he continued. “He [Yaya] is an incredible central midfielder one of the very best that the world has seen, and I was lucky enough to play with him. “Also, Okocha from Nigeria. He is a fantastic footballer, what an enigma!” Now one of the La Liga ambassadors, Eto’o is also the closest any African has come to winning the Ballon d’Or award since George Weah’s triumph in 1995. He finished third behind then Barcelona teammate Ronaldinho and Chelsea’s Frank Lampard in the 2005 edition.

The entire squad was contacted on social messaging service WhatsApp by president Christian Constantin on Tuesday. Constantin’s message asked the players to take a “technical unemployment” deal which would see them receive a payment of around 9600 Swiss francs – an amount that is equivalent to 80% of the legal monthly salary in Switzerland. The players were given until noon on Wednesday to respond and, although many of them refused or failed to reply, nine were subsequently let go – many of them on contracts that were due to expire at the end of June. As well as Song and Djourou – who played for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger – Christian Zock, Pajtim Kasami, Ermir Lenjani, Xavier Kouassi, Birama Ndoye, Mikael Facchinetti and Seydou Doumbia now find themselves dismissed without notice and without a club as world football has ground to a halt in the face of the pandemic. The Swiss Players Union, the SAFP, has protested the dismissals, calling them unfair, while the players are reported to be seeking legal advice. Loading… center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The SAFP wrote: “You have terminated the employment contracts of the players without notice by letter dated 18 March 2020. We hereby expressly protest against this termination without notice.” The letter, issued to the Swiss club, adds: “We therefore expect you to withdraw these abusive terminations immediately and to enter into discussions on possible alternatives.” In neighbouring Germany, Borussia Monchengladbach players agreed to take a reduction in wages in order to ensure the club could continue paying non-playing staff. French Ligue 1 club Amiens have asked their players to consider similar measures.

IPC adapting to cash flow issues caused by Tokyo 2020 postponement

first_img “Of course we have less income in 2020 due to the postponement.” Parsons added that the IPC had not requested any financial support from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to combat the cash flow issue, saying the organisation would seek to solve the issue internally. He confirmed that although there were cash flow issues, the IPC had no plans to let staff go. The IPC President also said the organisation were in contact with National Paralympic Committees (NPC) to address issues they may experience during the pandemic or due to the postponement of the Paralympic Games. Several NPCs have paid entry fees and for hotel accommodation at events, which have been impacted by cancellations or postponements. Parsons said the organisation were hopeful that NPCs which have already paid for accommodation for Tokyo 2020 could see their agreement remain in place for their rescheduled Paralympic Games in 2021. “Cancelled events and changed plans come at a cost to our members, who are normally not big and rich organisations,” he said. “They are not immune to the financial problems that come with COVID-19. “Some have already paid entry fees, hotels and tickets for events that have been cancelled so we are helping them with that and liaising with the local organising committees on how some of this money can go back to the National Paralympic Committees. “The best-case scenario is that the hotels where there is already an agreement for this year can offer the same service next year without having to charge a penalty fee.” Parsons thanked athletes and NPCs for their support during the coronavirus pandemic, which has seen more than 1.4 million cases worldwide and over 84,000 deaths. read also:IPC invite nominations for Athletes’ Council elections He said the Paralympic Games, now scheduled for August 24 to September 5 in 2021, could be a “sporting and humanitarian triumph”. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Parsons said the organisation were currently reviewing 150 contracts related to the Paralympic Games, which were rescheduled from 2020 to 2021 earlier this month. He said the IPC had already identified more than €1 million (£877,000/$1 million) in savings, roughly five per cent of their 2020 budget, as they adjust to the postponement of the Games and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The IPC 2018 financial report showed a budget of €24 million (£21 million/$26 million). Parsons said broadcast and commercial partners had been supportive of the decision to postpone the Paralympic Games, while adding that he understood why some had asked to delay payments. He stressed that the IPC would not lose money due to the postponement, but admitted the postponement had created a cash flow issue. “Like all businesses we are tremendously affected by the COVID-19 crisis,” Parsons said on a media teleconference today. “One immediate aspect of the Games postponement is a change in the cash flow of the IPC. “This week we have nearly completed an exercise reviewing more than 150 contracts that are Games related and we are embarking on negotiations to best resolve these changes. “One example is the broadcasters. “Some of them have already asked if they can delay final payments to 2021, which we can understand as the product will be delivered in 2021. “All of our partners have been hugely supportive, we had a call with our commercial partners where they asked what they could do to help us and the athletes. “It was really positive to hear this attitude, with the relationships that we have been building for years. International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President, Andrew Parsons, has acknowledged the organisation faces cash flow issues, with some broadcasters seeking to delay payments due to the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

While the NTF-ELCAC aims awhole-of-nation approach in attaining inclusive and sustainable peace, thePTF-ELCAC’s tack would be whole-of-province.  Based on DILG Memorandum Circular2019-125, a joint resolution of the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC)and the Provincial Development Council (PDC) is needed for the creation of thetask force. It will be chaired by the governor.center_img “This is good because the thrust ofGovernor (Arthur) Defensor (Jr.) is social justice. The framework is alreadythere.
