Balotelli ‘booked for racist abuse complaint’

first_img0Shares0000Mario Balotelli complained to referee Nicolas Rainville during the match at Dijon. The Nice forward said fans were shouting rascist abuse but received a yellow card © AFP / PHILIPPE DESMAZESPARIS, France, Feb 11 – Mario Balotelli was booked during Nice’s 3-2 loss at Dijon for complaining about racist abuse, his French Ligue 1 club and a local newspaper have claimed.A tweet from Nice at half-time in Saturday’s match said Balotelli had “picked up a yellow card after… getting annoyed at fans’ racist abuse”. Local newspaper Nice Matin in its match report said Balotelli “eyeballed and pointed his finger” at fans and “complained of racist abuse”.The newspaper said Dijon goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet had tried to calm down a furious Balotelli telling him he “hadn’t heard any racist chants”, to which the Italian forward replied it was coming from “two or three supporters”.Nice Matin said Balotelli’s booking was for his reaction to the Dijon fans, after which he had “alerted the fourth official to the alleged abuse”.It would not be the first time Balotelli, 27, has been targeted by racist abuse, in France and beyond.Last season some Bastia fans hurled insults at the former Liverpool, Inter Milan and AC Milan forward, who is of Ghanian origin.He was the target of racist chanting back in his homeland with Juventus fans accused numerous times, as well as Inter supporters when he was playing against his old club for their city rivals Milan.Before Euro 2012, Balotelli had threatened to “walk off the pitch” if he was abused by fans in Poland or Ukraine.That came after the BBC aired a documentary showing hardline ultra fans in both countries making Nazi salutes and monkey chants.The Croatian Football Federation was fined during that tournament for racist abuse by fans directed at Balotelli, while UEFA also investigated Spain following their match with Italy.In 2014, British police investigated offensive remarks directed at Balotelli on Twitter.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Lukaku may not start FA Cup final -Mourinho

first_imgNow the Belgium star is in a race against time to recover for the Cup final on May 19, with United manager Mourinho conceding Lukaku might only be fit enough to come on as a substitute.“We hope he can play the final,” Mourinho said after Thursday’s 0-0 draw at West Ham.“He’s in Belgium having his treatment and there is communication between the doctors in Belgium and our medical department.“We are just waiting to see if it’s possible for him to be involved in the final, if not starting at least he can be on the bench.”Lukaku has scored 27 goals since joining United from Everton in a £75 million ($101 million) deal last year.The Cup final represents United’s last chance to win a trophy this season after they secured a runners-up finish in the Premier League and suffered early exits from the Champions League and League Cup.Meanwhile, Michael Carrick will captain United on Sunday to mark the England midfielder’s final appearance before joining Mourinho’s backroom staff.“Carrick had already been decided. So if we’d lost the match (against West Ham) and we needed the point against Watford, I would play Carrick the same,” Mourinho said.“He’s going to start the match as a captain and he’s not going to end the match because I want him to leave the pitch alone and I want him to feel what the United supporters feel in relation to him.“He is going to be even closer to me than he was as a player so it is just an emotional moment because it is the end of a career of a fantastic player.”Mourinho insisted he will not field a young team against Watford, even though United are assured of second place behind champions Manchester City.“I have every player apart from Marouane Fellaini and Lukaku available and I don’t go to the young players,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku faces a battle to be fit for the FA Cup final © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, May 11 – Jose Mourinho says Romelu Lukaku could start the FA Cup final on the bench as the Manchester United striker battles to recover from an ankle injury in time for the Wembley showdown with Chelsea.Lukaku hasn’t featured for United since suffering his ankle problem against Arsenal last month and is set to miss the last game of the Premier League season against Watford on Sunday.last_img read more

Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Liverpool has left Sir Alex Ferguson ‘worried’

first_img1 Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Liverpool has left Sir Alex Ferguson “worried” the German will elevate the Reds above Manchester United.Ferguson famously stated his biggest challenge upon arriving at Old Trafford in 1986 was to “knock Liverpool right off their perch” and by the time he retired in 2013, he had guided United past the Reds’ record 18 domestic titles.The last of Liverpool’s championship victories came prior to the Premier League’s formation but, after hiring Klopp in October and losing just two of their 12 games since, Ferguson is confident the ex-Borussia Dortmund boss will transform the Merseysiders’ fortunes.Speaking at the TechCrunch Disrupt London event, Ferguson said: “I’m worried about him because one thing United don’t want is Liverpool to be above us, that’s for sure.“He’s a fantastic personality, he’s got that great confidence in himself.“I noticed in yesterday’s game when they lost the second goal he went across to (Newcastle boss) Steve McClaren and was smiling and congratulated him – it was class, that.“He’s got a great personality – his big white teeth are always showing he’s enjoying it. I know him quite well from the coaching seminars we have and I got a text from him the other day.“He’s going to make a difference to that club, there’s absolutely no doubt about it. He’s got the personality, he’s got the drive, he’s got the knowledge and a great presence about him so I think things are looking up there.” Jurgen Klopp last_img read more

UPDATED: FRANCOIS JAILED THREE TIMES FOR FRAUD

first_imgTHE MAN exposed as a crook by donegaldaily.com was JAILED three times, it was revealed tonight.Conman Francois de Dietrich fleeced 220 Donegal people out of tens of millions of euros – and 200 others around Ireland.But his crimewave was brought to an end when donegaldaily lifted the lid on how he tricked unsuspecting victims into parting with their cash. The French crook ran a series of legitimate businesses from his base in Ballybofey.But behind the front was a sophisticated con job – where people handed over their money in return for promises of returns of up to 40%.Tonight donegaldaily can reveal that conman De Dietrich was jailed three times in his native France for previous frauds.He even ripped off his own brother – and was banned from being involved in business by the French authorities for 30 years! Living openly in France, de Dietrich was involved in money laundering for criminals.One criminal who put in £100,000 and got £1.7M back via foreign back accounts.Detectives believe criminals were the main beneficiaries of De Dietrich’s con tricks.Confronted by the BBC in northern France, the conman refused to answer any questions.His victims included Gardai, PSNI officers, accountants and property developers. And while Francois was rolling in other people’s cash, staff of Etic Solutions were treated shamefully.Former employee Jenny Byrne revealed that Francois refused to pay mileage or overnight accommodation when she was working for him.“You were lucky to get paid,” she said.And she says she asked herself: “How do we have these lovely offices without a client base; there was no pressure to get revenue in.” After the Spotlight programme on BBC1 tonight, one investor who has been talking to donegaldaily for six months told us: “I know donegaldaily reported he had a criminal record and seeing it now on TV has brought home just how evil Francois really is.“I can’t thank donegaldaily enough for exposing this man. I’ve lost my money, but thankfully no-one else will be conned now.”UPDATED: FRANCOIS JAILED THREE TIMES FOR FRAUD was last modified: June 8th, 2011 by gregShare 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:BallybofeyconmancrookFrancois de Dietrichthieflast_img read more

Trailer parks a mixed blessing for cities

first_imgCommon violations included in reports were: trash piled on the ground; broken windows; unpermitted and ungrounded electrical wiring; gas lines running above ground; and illegal structures. During an inspection at one facility in 2005, workers noted sewage flowing directly from trailers to a puddle on the park’s grounds. “There was, and still is, a concentrated effort to get the owners to comply with health and safety issues,” said El Monte Community Development Director Dante Hall. Owners of the parks found in violation have started to make improvements, although the city had to threaten to take at least one to court, according to Hall and city documents. ben.baeder@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2703165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

They have trailers: 8-foot-wide, 12- to 40-foot-long trailers, many with the wheels still attached. The 2000 U.S. Census lists about 1,800 mobile living units in the two cities, most of them trailers, according to Clay Hollopeter, director of the Boys & Girls Club San Gabriel Valley. Community activists and city officials agree the parks are a mixed blessing. They provide inexpensive housing, but, due to absentee landlords, tend to degenerate into slums. “If it wasn’t for the trailers, whole families would be on the streets,” Hollopeter said. During inspections in 2004 and 2005, El Monte code enforcement officers listed about 100 violations of building and safety laws each at two parks and about 60 at another, according to records at City Hall. Roommates Isidio Torres and Maria Castillo keep a flowering bush on the patio with a picture of the Virgin Mary hanging from its branches. They say they love the peace and simplicity of their home on Mountain View Road. Torres, a 64-year-old retired machinist, lives in the front 12feet. Castillo lives in the back 12. They are two of an estimated 5,000 to 8,000 residents in El Monte and South El Monte who live in trailers. Due to a quirky zoning law from the 1950s, the two cities share the uncommon distinction of being crammed with small trailer parks. last_img read more

New law sets fish-farming restrictions

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday signed into law what he called the nation’s toughest restrictions on fish farming, setting regulations he said will help avoid problems that have arisen in other states. Those problems include fish escaping from large ocean pens and breeding or spreading disease in wild populations, large amounts of fish waste and the killing of seals, sea lions and other animals that occasionally prey on pen-raised fish. Schwarzenegger called the law “a common-sense proposal that will allow California businesses to grow while providing strict protections for the environment and consumers.” Fish farming in California currently is confined to inland ponds. There is no aquaculture off the state’s coast, other than commercially grown shellfish, but experts say that will change as the demand grows for commercially raised fish. Under the law signed Friday, prospective farmers who want to raise penned fish off the coast will need a 10-year lease from the state Fish and Game Commission. The commission will decide where and how the farms can operate and set environmental standards, which will minimize the use of hormones and antibiotics and regulate the use of native fish to feed the stocks.last_img read more

HARPS BROUGHT BACK DOWN TO EARTH BY CORK

first_imgAn opportunistic second-half brace from Shane Duggan catapulted Cork City back into joint-second in the Airtricity League First Division table after they ended Finn Harps’ two-game winning streak in Ballybofey last night.The result comes as a big blow for Harps after their recent revival which would’ve really ignited with any sort of a result against the Turner’s Cross outfit. Instead, the margin on the teams above them is slightly extended once more, following the unravelling of Friday night’s results.Aaron McElwee and Paddy McLaughlin both returned to the Harps line-up, having missed out on last week’s game due to suspension, while Ciaran Coll got the nod ahead of Gareth Harkin to start at left-back. The home side would’ve felt content going in at the break all-square after seeing their opponents pass up a number of golden opportunities, none more so than a penalty awarded on eighteen minutes.Cork striker Vinny Sullivan powered his way into the box and after being put off balance from Paddy McLaughlin, tumbled into the onrushing Ciaran Gallagher, who picked up the yellow card, strangely, instead of his team-mate.Graham Cummins then stepped up and hammered the spot-kick off Gallagher’s left-hand post, as Harps were let off the hook.Moments beforehand and Cork nearly had another penalty after Keith Cowan upended Cummins right on the edge of the area, with the Harps defender walking away scot-free and Gallagher saving the subsequent free-kick from Davin O’Neill. The visitors, without a defeat from any of their eight away games to date, continued to test their hosts, with Mark Forker perfectly positioned to steer a Stephen Mulcahy header off the line, following a teasing corner from Gearóid Morrissey.Harps, despite playing some wonderfully composed football in the first half, scarcely tested Mark McNulty, as Kevin McHugh and Blaine Curtis worried the Cork back-four but never frightened them.The home side’s best chance of an opener came on thirteen minutes when McHugh bust a gut to get to the byline before pulling square for Curtis, who was denied by the backtracking McNulty just as the striker was about to pull the trigger.The Leesider’s looked like they might finally grab the breakthrough two minutes before the break when Sullivan robbed Aaron O’Hagan before rounding Ciaran Gallagher. And despite been forced wide, Sullivan picked out O’Neill, who somehow managed to blaze wide from six yards out, with the goal at his mercy.Curtis, industrious and sharp throughout, twice went close in the early stages of the second half, the first a wonderfully improvised flick from a Brolly cross and the second, a fifteen yard effort that McNulty collected, following a beautifully threaded-ball from Aaron McElwee. The away side, however, nudged ahead just after the hour mark when Shane Duggan tucked home after a nice cutback from Cummins, who managed to shrug off the attentions of the previously impenetrable Keith Cowan. Duggan then bagged his and his side’s second goal of the night after Paddy McLaughlin gifted the visitor’s possession in the middle of the park. The stylish midfielder galloped onto the loose ball and after Cowan failed with an attempted block, Duggan kept his composure to curl home from twenty yards past Gallagher.Cummins might have made it three for the away side in the dying stages but was hauled down by Cowan on the edge of the area, an incident the Harps defender somehow managed to escape with just a yellow card.Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; Paddy McLaughlin, Keith Cowan, Aaron O’Hagan, Ciaran Coll; Mark Forker, Aaron McElwee, Tommy Bonnar, Marc Brolly; Blaine Curtis, Kevin McHugh. Subs: Gareth Harkin (Brolly, 52 mins), Gary Merritt (McLaughlin, 78 mins).Cork City: Mark McNulty; Neal Horgan, Stephen Mulcahy, Kalen Spillane, Danny Murphy; Gearóid Morrissey, Greg O’Halloran, Shane Duggan, Derek O’Brien; Graham Cummins, Vinny Sullivan.
