La Liga: Barcelona boss Setien questions use of VAR

first_imgIt was a result which took Madrid to the top of La Liga for the first time since the resumption of Spanish football as they leapfrogged Setien’s Blaugrana – who were to a scoreless draw at Sevilla on Friday – on goal difference. “There are things that we cannot control and that do not depend on us. Everybody saw what happened in Anoeta and everyone will draw their own conclusions,” Setien told reporters, as cited by ESPN.Advertisement Loading… Barcelona boss Quique Setien believes that officials in La Liga are not using the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system correctly. Barcelona boss Setien questions La Liga use of VAR It follows on directly from Real Madrid’s victory at Real Sociedad being marred by controversial officiating decisions surrounding key incidents in the clash. Los Blancos opened the scoring in Anoeta from a penalty decision before an equaliser for La Real was controversially ruled out by handball and Karim Benzema’s strike – Madrid’s second of the game – appearing to have been controlled initially by a handball. Read Also: La Liga hopes to welcome fans back under strict guidelines “We’ve been here for many years and this doesn’t change. It’s always the same, the controversy will always be there,” he added. “VAR is a tool that can make us better, but we have to use it to have a clearer view of reality.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 “It’s understandable that we think why there are some actions that are reviewed, the referee himself reviews them and they don’t do the same in other plays. “They do it on some matches and in some others (they don’t). So you could really think that (VAR) is not being used correctly.” Setien did admit that controversies will always play a key role in football even with VAR technology being available to help officials come to the correct conclusions.last_img read more

Mourinho wants players made in Chelsea

first_imgManager Jose Mourinho hopes Chelsea will produce another homegrown core of talent to succeed John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard. Press Association “In three or four years’ time, if we don’t have other Englishmen to replace this nucleus of players – when Lamps is 39, John is 36 – I will be very sad. Every club needs that. So we are working on that (new generation).” Terry, Cole and Lampard are all out of contract at the end of the current campaign. Terry, more than his team-mates, has enjoyed highs – lifting silverware, including the 2012 Champions League – and endured lows – the racism row, twice losing the England captaincy, injury and missing a penalty in the 2008 Champions League final – since Mourinho’s 2007 departure. The Portuguese believes the captain is rediscovering his best form since his summer return for a second spell as boss at Stamford Bridge. “Even I was questioning, from far away, what was happening to this guy: physical problems, psychological problems, what is going on?” Mourinho said. “I’m happy he’s proving he’s still a top player.” center_img The Blues boss has been fulsome in his praise of the likes of Nathaniel Chalobah – now on loan at Nottingham Forest but told he will be part of the Chelsea first-team next season – and is optimistic the club’s academy can bear further fruit. Mourinho told the Guardian: “Ideally it’s not just about having British players either, but having players who are made in Chelsea. last_img read more

NFF Commends LMC, Clubs, Other Stakeholders on Successful NPFL Season

first_img“I look back and there are so many things to be happy about in the just –concluded season. I was there in Kano during the opening match of the season in which Kano Pillars defeated Enugu Rangers with a late goal. Football has returned to Maiduguri – which people thought would not be possible – and we have had a number of fascinating Friday Night matches. I can boldly say this League Season has gone well with huge improvements all round and we had the best team winning.“A few matches were troubled by security breaches and some referees did not cover themselves in glory. But at the end, it was a season to be proud of and we can only put in place reforms to make things better in the coming season.”On refereeing, Pinnick elected to elaborate on what the NFF will be doing to improve things.“We have been doing a lot to improve refereeing, including taking dozens of them to the United Kingdom for capacity enhancement, as well as hosting FIFA Member Association courses to ensure our referees get better.“Now, the NFF leadership has identified the shortcomings and will initiate positive reforms of the refereeing management process to ensure more effectiveness and improved professional delivery.”The first reform, according to the NFF President, which is aimed at guaranteeing independence and strict compliance to the rules, would be to divide referee management into three professional and independent committees: Training, Grading and Appointment; Assessment and; Performance Review and Compliance, including sanctions for erring referees.“The last two committees (Assessment and Performance Review and Compliance) would be headed by independent and credible personalities to ensure fairness and prompt actions,” explained Pinnick.The NFF supremo gave kudos to LMC Chairman Shehu Dikko, who is also the NFF 2nd Vice President, stating that the latter’s work ethic and vision alongside LMC CEO Nduka Irabor and the COO Salihu Abubakar have taken the NPFL to new heights.“It is not only in the work they do that they have excelled; they have also been there for the other Leagues: NNL, NWFL and the NLO.

Duerig verbals to Syracuse with ambitions to contribute right away

first_imgAndrejas Duerig’s dream school was not Syracuse. He didn’t see himself playing for the Orange in “a million years.”But when his National Collegiate Scouting Association recruiting profile matched him up with a bunch of potential schools, Syracuse was the only one that came back as a 100-percent match. Soon after that, SU offered him a spot in the Class of 2015. “I was like, there’s got to be something that God’s telling us here,” Duerig said, “that this is the school I need to go to.” Duerig committed to Syracuse on June 17 while he was on campus during his official visit. A versatile offensive guard that is transferring to Mount Carmel (Ill.) High School for his senior season, Duerig can also play tight end, as well as other positions on the offensive line. But one of the primary things that drew him to the Orange, though, was the possibility of starting at center right away. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I like making a mark,” Duerig said. “Where I can make a mark most is where I play. And if I can come into a program and give my heart and do my best and start for four years…I think that’d be fantastic.” His versatility will likely land him more offers from big-time programs in the coming weeks and months, but Duerig insists that he remains steadfast in his decision to play for Syracuse. He’s changed his cellphone number, and he’s having his mom monitor his Twitter and Facebook accounts to shoo off other college coaches. “When he sees something and he wants it, he just does it,” said Shane Tucker, Duerig’s former coach. “That’s him. He doesn’t want to mess around.” Duerig knows that he can have a chance to have an immediate effect on the Syracuse offense in a multitude of ways. In middle school, he was forced to learn how to play many different positions, many of which he still plays in high school. Now he’s a 6-foot-4, 272-pound rising senior, but it was in those formative years that Duerig developed a feel for the game. Tucker said that from the moment Duerig started playing football he was a “mountain man”— and a strong lineman unlike some of the other, “softer” players on his seventh-grade team.Tucker, whose son also plays for Mount Carmel, now serves as a mentor figure to Duerig and said the lineman will leave a positive mark on the Syracuse program. But before he gets to SU, he still has one high school season to play. This summer, he’s been working out with MC assistant coach Joe Kubik as he prepares to play his first season with a top-flight high school football program. Immediately, Kubik said, he understood why Duerig has become such a highly recruited player. “He’s been a great worker,” Kubik said. “He’s been a great leader. He’s been a great team-first guy. We expect great things out of him.” Mount Carmel is Duerig’s focus right now, but it’s just a stop for him. Syracuse is the long-term future for Duerig, and one he admittedly didn’t believe in for quite a while. But once he visited Syracuse, and came to understand what he could potentially mean to the program, it was no longer an unknown decision. It was an obvious one. “When I did take that visit,” Duerig said. “…It just all built together to make the easy decision. It’s kind of funny how things work out.”  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on July 17, 2014 at 12:08 am Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3last_img read more
