Currently accumulates more than fifty presences (55) in Second (one goal). During this season, the new Tenerife defender has barely participated in nine games, three of them as a starter, which have allowed him to accumulate more than 340 minutes of play.At present, the defender is in the final stretch of the recovery of a physical ailment that has prevented him from being available to his coach in the last competition matches.

Joselu’s arrival will be officially announced in the next few hours, Real Oviedo striker with whom there is already a principle of agreement to be dressed in blue and white. The left side of Tenerife has been the ‘X File’ since the arrival of Víctor Moreno to the sports management. Last season he reinforced the position in winter with the arrival of Isma López and in the summer he opted for Robert Mazán, but neither of them met expectations. Therefore, this sector has been underpinned with Daniel Lasure (Zaragoza, 1994), who arrives on loan until June from Real Zaragoza.last_img read more

This is how Barcelona mentioned Messi in the call for the global account referring to the acronym G.O.A.T., four letters that summarize, in English, a clear concept: the best of all time.Why the goat? The answer is simple. ‘goat’, ‘goat’ in English, coincides with the acronym for ‘Greatest Of All Times’, the best ever. Barça makes it clear: for them it’s Leo Messi. The club culé has this gesture with Messi just to announce the list before facing Naples, team and city that was marked by Diego Armando Maradona. The one of Villa Fiorito, who played as azzurro from 1984 to 1991, undergoes constant comparisons with Leo Messi for the throne of football history.

Rüstü’s wife explains how the coronavirus is affecting her

first_imgIsil Reçber, the wife of the former Turkish soccer player who played in the Barcelona, Rüstü Reçber, explained through Instagram what is the status of her husband, whose condition has gone from severe to stable due to the coronavirus: “The past 72 hours have been difficult and I hope we will improve. Thank you infinitely to everyone who is with us.” The woman who was a doorman has explained step by step the symptoms she has had, explaining that she has never seen anything like this: “This is the battle of a living being against a virus that has changed in size and does not know the human body. Do not try to see the symptoms as in a normal cold because you will waste time. As with everything, detecting it early is very important. It does not stay in the throat and nose for days, but moves quickly to other places. It settles quickly in the lungs, multiplies and pneumonia begins. So the first 72 hours are very critical. Rustu had a fever for days and hours like malaria. Strange symptoms that have never been experienced or seen before. Lips and skin turn gray, you breathe fast, you have trouble breathing, an endless cough, an irregular pulse, and you don’t speak. Maybe You may not like it, but this is what we experience step by step. They are my observations. “Finally, Isil asked people to remain calm despite the health authorities being overwhelmed: “The media is raising awareness, but unfortunately the hospitals are full. Everyone has a family and everyone is a person. Stay calm and stay home.”last_img read more

Supreme Court rules in favour of Tennis Ja

first_imgThe Supreme Court of Jamaica has dismissed an application made last Friday for interim injunctions against Tennis Jamaica brought by one of its members, Joseph Dibbs, to restrain the holding of an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).The EGM which was scheduled for yesterday was postponed by the board of Tennis Jamaica at a special emergency meeting on Monday shortly after the ruling was made. According to a release from Tennis Jamaica a new date for the EGM will be announced shortly. The meeting was postponed, the release said, to allow members to be apprised of the situation and to participate fully in the process of selecting a new administration.The injunctions were sought in a claim which was seeking, among other things, a determination that John Azar was duly and validly elected president of Tennis Jamaica arising out of the annual general meeting of Tennis Jamaica held on November 19 last year.last_img read more

Champs matchups to savour

first_imgAbsorbing match-ups are sprinkled liberally across the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships this week. Yet, despite the collective allure, one has captured the nation’s imagination. That special one pits Nigel Ellis of St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) against Jhevaughn Matherson of Kingston College (KC) and Raheem Chambers of St Jago High School. In a world where the Olympic or World 100m champion has long been dubbed the world’s fastest human, that extra interest is understandable. Chambers and Matherson are precocious talents who each have won the Class Three 100m in record time. Two years ago, Chambers out-started his friendly KC rival to win in a Class Two record time of 10.29 seconds, with Matherson next in 10.37 seconds. By contrast, Ellis has never won a Champs medal before. This late bloomer moved from Cambridge High and has blossomed at STETHS. He was fourth in both the Class One 100 and 200m last year, with Chambers behind him in the shorter race. All of those ahead of him, including former Calabar standout Michael O’Hara, are gone. So is his 2015 personal best of 10.45. Some didn’t believe his fast-winning Western Champs times of 10.20 and 20.40 seconds until his measured 10.26-second dash to beat Chambers in the Under-20 100m at the recent Carifta Trials. Even though that was Chambers’ first 100m of the season, and even though Matherson smoothly released a 10.25 to win the under-18, everyone believes in Ellis now. His mission is to become the first boy from STETHS to win the Class One 100m. For all that, there are some other big matchups. Ellis’ schoolmate, Junelle Bromfield, and Ashley Williams of Holmwood Technical are heading for a highly anticipated meeting in the Class One 400m. Bromfield is strong and Williams is quick, but the STETHS girl is just about 0.3 faster on the clock this year. Despite all that and the lofty expectations for the clashes between Jauavney James, Shevon Parkes, and Leon Clarke in the Class One 800m and between the JC pair of O’Brien Wasome and Clayton Brown in the Class One triple jump, the girls’ Class Two 100m hurdles will share the spotlight. Two former Class Three and Four winners, Sidney Marshall of Manchester High and Holmwood’s Shanette Allison, demand attention in the Class Two 100 metres hurdles. Allison edged her elder rival at Central Champs and looked great on Tuesday in the Champs heats. Her time of 13.60 seconds led all qualifiers in the preliminary round. Perhaps next year, when she will again be in Class Two, she will knock on the door of the record, set at 13.38 seconds by Peta-Gaye Williams. As in the boys’ Class One 100m, there is another worthy contender. That’s Marshall’s teammate, Daszay Freeman. This leggy lass has sprint credentials, having beaten St Jago’s outstanding Kimone Shaw. Marshall is slick. Allison is quick and Freeman has the look of someone who will keep improving. One of them could become really, really good. That’s the great thing about Champs. Whether the athlete is as unheralded as Ellis or as established as bright prospects like Chambers and Matherson, those who watch Champs keenly could see a gem. So here’s a word of advice. Don’t lose focus after the big 100-metre final. The girls’ Class Two 100-metre hurdles could be the race of the meet. HIGHLY ANTICIPATEDlast_img read more
