first_imgVukojevic posted the video after Croatia beat Russia on penalties in the quarter-finals.Vida escaped with a warning from FIFA and is expected to be part of Croatia’s team to face England in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.He used to play for Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev and Vukojevic also played for Dynamo and now works for them as a scout.FIFA said Tuesday it was “looking into” another video of Vida apparently making political statements, including “Glory to Ukraine”.The phrase was a famous rallying cry of the former Soviet republic’s pro-EU revolution that toppled a Russian-backed president in 2014.The EU-backed uprising was followed by Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula and the outbreak of a Kremlin-backed separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine that has claimed more than 10,000 lives.While many in Ukraine compared the phrase to neutral slogans such as “Vive la France”, some say it has distinct anti-Kremlin connotations.The action against Vukojevic sparked Ukrainian anger towards FIFA as well as a wave of support for Vida and Vukojevic.“We decided to compensate Vukojevic from our personal funds for the fine that he will have to pay,” Ukraine football federation chief Andriy Pavelko wrote on Facebook.“In addition, we are ready to consider the options for cooperation of FFU with such a high-class specialist,” Pavelko said, in a post that included a picture of himself in a Croatia jersey.– ‘Offended millions of fans’ –Ukraine’s foreign ministry slammed FIFA’s “unprofessional actions”.“Not only did they take the wrong decision about the Croatia players, they also offended millions of fans from Ukraine, Croatia and other countries,” Oleksiy Makeev, the foreign ministry’s political director, told AFP.He slammed FIFA for turning a blind eye to Russia’s involvement in the Ukraine and Syria conflicts.Around 160,000 angry internet users, mainly Ukrainians, gave the FIFA official Facebook page a one-star review and wrote comments such as “Glory to Ukraine!” or “Shame to FIFA!”On Tuesday, a small protest took place in front of the Croatian embassy in Ukraine’s capital Kiev in a show of support, AFP journalists saw.A group of around 15 people chanted “Glory to Ukraine” and held Croatian flags and placards praising Vukojevic and Vida.On Sunday, Ukraine’s football governing body also sent a letter to FIFA chief Gianni Infantino saying that “Glory to Ukraine!… is not a discriminatory or far-right sign or symbol”.It “should not be interpreted as an act of aggression or provocation,” the body said.In the video, Vukojevic also said: “This victory is for Dynamo (Kiev) and for Ukraine! Croatia onwards!”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Croatia defender Domagoj Vida said the “Glory to Ukraine” video was a joke © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVKIEV, Ukraine, Jul 10 – Ukraine’s football federation said Tuesday it had offered a job to former Croatia international Ognjen Vukojevic and would pay his fine following an uproar over a pro-Ukraine clip he posted during the World Cup.The Croatian football association stripped Vukojevic of his role as an assistant in the team’s delegation in Russia and FIFA fined him $15,000 over an Instagram video featuring him and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida, who shouted “Glory to Ukraine!”last_img read more

I don’t even want to talk about that because it is very hard,” Toure told British media.”Right now I haven’t spoken with Mama, to be honest. I’ve been in there and it has been really difficult, definitely. This is private but he knows what I think about him.”The 35-year-old Toure is out of contract in the summer but British media reported that manager Juergen Klopp was positive about his prospects of staying on.”The future is bright for me and it was good news from the manager, so I’m looking forward to it,” the former Arsenal defender said.”Bringing something off the pitch is natural for me.

first_imgBy Amanpreet Singh New Delhi, Apr 27 (PTI) The All India Tennis Associations plan of conducting 44 international events on the back of government support this season is unlikely to materialise with the Sports Ministry indicating that it is not keen to provide funds. The ministry has told AITA that holding tournaments is strictly a national federations domain and the government can only chip in for some cases. Indias tennis calendar has a barren look to it as ATP Challengers have vanished from it, leaving the countrys players with no Tier-II tournaments which can help them earn ranking points and money. In 2015, India hosted four USD 50,000 Challengers and in 2016 it was reduced to two — Delhi Open and the Pune Challenger. This season, four months have passed but the players have not got a single Challenger to compete in as the Delhi Open, which is usually held in February, has been delayed. Only one state association — MSLTA — has committed to continue with its Challenger in Pune in October. In the 2015 season, India had hosted 19 mens ITF Futures and 16 womens ITF events but last year, not event half of that could take place. AITA Secretary General Hironmoy Chatterjee had recently said that they have submitted a proposal to the government through Annual Calendar for Training and Competition (ACTC), seeking help of Rs 11 crore for hosting 44 international tournaments. AITA was hoping that the government would chip in with this funding, while it would raise money for the rest of the cost. However, a ministry source, who is in know of the things, said organising tournaments is a Federations responsibility. “We have told them that organising such tournaments is the responsibility of the Federation and its Members and Affiliates. Government can only supplement to some extent. We can maybe help them with one big ATP tournament,” the official told PTI. “Moreover the Federation should also work on a strong development programme, which the government would be happy to support,” the source added. Sports Minister Vijay Goel further said that his ministry was not considering any proposal to fund tennis tournaments as claimed by AITA. It has been an onerous task to raise sponsors for tennis events in India with hardly any corporate house coming forward to support the tournaments. To host a USD 50,000 Challenger event, a state association requires at least USD 100,000. “We have been asking for help for the last 4 to 5 years and at last the government has agreed to support tournaments,” Chatterjee had said when quizzed about lack of tournaments in the country. “We could not do Challengers last year because whoever ventured into Challengers lost a lot of money. They could not raise money required to host these Challengers. All over the world, its the government that supports these events. “We have included Challengers in ACTC and we have told them (the government) you have to immediately give us approval because for allotment of these tournaments, you require three months time to apply,” he said. As per the arrangement, the AITA has to first host tournaments and then ask for reimbursement of funds from the government to pass it on to the state associations. AITA claims to host 855 tournaments in a year, including talent series, national series, state ranking, national ranking, mens and ladies without any support. But it says to host international tournaments, government support is a must. It will be extremely tough for the Indian players to go up the ranking ladder without Challengers in the country. Players such as Ramkumar Ramanathan, Prajnesh Gunnseawaran and N Sriram Balaji need to move from the Futures level to Challengers level to make any progress.

first_imgSACRAMENTO, Calif. — DeMarcus Cousins was more concerned with Sacramento’s defensive deficiencies than he was pleased by another big offensive night.Cousins scored nine of his season-high 39 points in overtime in his return from a stomach ailment, and the Kings rallied after blowing a lead late in regulation to hand the New York Knicks their seventh straight loss, 135-129 on Dec. 27.“We have to get back to being the real Kings,” Cousins said. “That’s wanting to defend at a high level, taking pride in actually playing defense. We can’t be a team that comes out every night and tries to outscore people. That’s not us.”Rudy Gay scored 29 points and Darren Collison added 27 points, 10 assists and a tiebreaking 3-pointer late in overtime for the slumping Kings.Sacramento had lost seven of its previous eight games, including four of five under interim coach Tyrone Corbin. But a matchup with the NBA’s second-worst team helped reverse that slide after the Kings blew a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead.“We’ve been struggling to find a way to win,” Collison said. “When you struggle so much, you really don’t know how to win. It’s just good to get a win under our belt right now so we understand this is how we need to play.”Carmelo Anthony scored 36 points for the short-handed Knicks, who dressed only nine players in losing for the 17th time in 18 games.Forward Quincy Acy was suspended for a flagrant foul against Washington’s John Wall on Dec. 25. Forward Amare Stoudemire (right knee) and guard J.R. Smith (partially torn left plantar fascia) were held out with injuries. New York is already without forward Andrea Bargnani (strained right calf) and guard Iman Shumpert (left shoulder).“We stayed committed to each other as teammates no matter what the circumstances were,” coach Derek Fisher said. “They kept fighting out there. You have to have that in order to give yourself a chance to win.”New York fought back to tie the game in the final minute of regulation. Cole Aldrich converted a three-point play with 38 seconds left to make it 117-115 and Tim Hardaway Jr. scored on a fast break following a turnover by Cousins to tie the game.Anthony then stole the ball from Gay with a second left to force overtime.The Kings took the lead for good on a corner 3-pointer from Collison with 1:22 to play. A dunk by Cousins extended it to five and Collison’s fast-break layup sealed it with 39 seconds remaining.“He kind of fuels the whole engine,” Corbin said of Collison. “When he goes, that picks up the pace for us. I thought he did a great job leading us tonight.”The Kings once again showed they are a completely different team with Cousins on the floor than when he is out injured. A night after Cousins sat with an illness in a loss to Phoenix, he got off to a fast start against the Knicks. He scored 15 points in the first seven minutes, including an emphatic dunk over Samuel Dalembert and a rare 3-pointer.The Kings improved to 11-8 with Cousins on the floor. Sacramento has lost nine of 11 without Cousins, who missed 10 games with viral meningitis. The struggles during that stretch contributed to the decision to fire coach Michael Malone last month.(JOSH DUBOW, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
