However, Infantino has already insisted he had “nothing to hide”. In a letter sent to FIFA’s 211 members Infantino said there were no “factual grounds for the opening of a criminal investigation”.

Allardyce expects tough month

first_img Everton defender Johnny Heitinga turned down a move to Upton Park earlier in the week and, although Allardyce remains in the dark on the Holland international’s U-turn, he anticipates it will prove a challenge to bring in the right players to help save West Ham. “I don’t know what the real reason is, why Johnny didn’t come,” he said. “He just said the morning after it was something he felt wasn’t right. That’s the only explanation he gave to me. Not something I could extract out of him. “I knew it was going to be nearly impossible anyway, in this window. As always the window is an impossible scenario to deal with. To have to work in it under the circumstances we have makes it even more difficult. “Because you have got players who will look around and say, ‘Do I want to go to a team in the bottom three? Do I want to go for that fight?’ Perhaps some of them will say, ‘no. I might as well stay and play the odd game’. You just keep searching and looking.” Monaco striker Lacina Traore is the latest player linked with a loan move to West Ham but Allardyce knows he will be offered players left, right and centre during January. “I’ve had more than thousands of calls, it’ll probably been millions by the time we finish this window,” he said. “I’d prefer not to have to keep answering my phone every two minutes or every one minute but I do to find out what part of the world these agents have got these players that want to come and are desperate to come to West Ham.” A Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City follows the FA Cup tie with Forest but, with just two league points accrued in December, Allardyce admits the mood in the camp is low and that it is his responsibility to lift the squad. The Hammers have just 14 fit first-team players, with a host of youth team talent joining up with the squad for their FA Cup third-round match at Nottingham Forest on Sunday. But recruiting new players could prove difficult for Allardyce with his side currently languishing in 19th place in the Barclays Premier League. Sam Allardyce is expecting a hard slog throughout January as he looks to add to his injury-ravaged squad.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

 

Abramovich loan tops £1billion

first_img In the accounts strategic report, secretary Paul Heagren said: “The company has received confirmation from the ultimate controlling party that sufficient funds will be provided to finance the business for the foreseeable future.” Chelsea are determined to abide by UEFA’s financial fair play regulations and be less reliant on Abramovich’s vast personal fortune. Heagren added: “The football club needs to balance success on the field together with the financial imperatives of this new regime.” Fordstam returned a profit of £14.2m in figures reported, compared to a loss of £55.9m for the previous year. The improvement was attributed to Chelsea reaching the Champions League semi-finals, new sponsorship agreements and an increase in distribution of broadcasting rights from the Premier League. Significant income was retrieved through player sales. “The football club made a profit on player trading of £65.1m in the year, principally due to the sale of Juan Mata to Manchester United, Kevin de Bruyne to Wolfsburg and David Luiz to Paris St Germain,” the accounts said. Other player sales have not been accounted for, but Chelsea’s playing squad was valued at £352.95m, up from £272.20m the previous year. “The valuations assume willing buyers for the relevant players’ registrations on normal contractual terms,” Heagren added. Chelsea won the Premier League title for the first time in five years this season and also won the Capital One Cup. The loan to Fordstam from the Russian oligarch, who purchased the Blues in July 2003, has reached £1.041billion, up from £984million the previous year. Accounts for Fordstam, the company through which Abramovich owns Chelsea, for the year ending June 30, 2014 show the interest-free loan is repayable on 18 months’ notice, but also suggest the Russian billionaire is fully committed to the club. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s loan to the club’s parent company Fordstam has surpassed £1 billion, accounts show. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

 

Marian Academy girls three-peat at National Schools Basketball Festival

first_img– Kwakwani, PC win boys U-14 and U-18 divisionsA SHORT-handed Marian Academy girls’ team won their third consecutive title while Kwakwani Secondary and President’s College (PC) stormed to wins in the U-14 and U-18 male divisions when action in the Youth Basketball Guyana-organised National School Basketball Festival culminated on Saturday evening at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.The finals of the 14th edition of the Festival was spectacular on and off the court, with the finalists heavily supported by a wide cross section of spectators, including former West Indies cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul.Gevon Ross was named MVP of the U-14 division.Both male divisions crowned new champions. President’s College became the first East Coast team to win the older age group title (it was previously U-19), while Kwakwani, who featured in all three finals, replaced Chase Academy as U-14 champions.EARLY DOMINANCEThe young basketball players from Kwakwani showed their might in the U-14 finals against Georgetown school, Saint Stanislaus College.Led by Travis Lewis and Gevon Ross, the Region 10 school stormed to a 77-25 point win.Lewis exploded in the second period with 12 of his game-high 26 points, which propelled the Berbice River school to a 46-15 points lead at the half.Ross, who dominated the centre position by pulling down 17 rebounds to go with 23 points, was eventually crowned Most Valuable Player.Matthew David just missed a triple-double after finishing with 14 points, 11 rebounds and nine steals.Kelon Phillips also contributed to the score with 10 first-half points.Trevon Boston, who scored eight points (two threes) and grabbed five rebounds, and Daniel Bailey, with seven points and eight rebounds, led Saints.TEAM BASKETBALL Marian Academy defended their title without two of their starters, Jada Mohan and Angelique Foo in the line-up. Despite missing their key players, the girls were able to play their stifling defence and fuel their offense through their star player, Kellyann Sauers. The eventual MVP was unstoppable off the right glass and she registered key lay-ups at critical times during the game; when she attacked in the middle, she delivered some nice looking floaters. Sauers finished with 14 points and eight rebounds.The game was not all Sauers, as several players, including Renuka Ramcharan (four points) and Shamina Peroune (four points and 13 rebounds) made some critical baskets, stops and rebounds as the girls were able to hold on to the last possession to ensure a three-point victory (27-24).Kwakwani’s skipper Shania Sears scored eight points and three rebounds, but it was Molly Grimmond who brought the Berbice River school back in the second half by hitting two crisp three- pointers. Grimmond finished with 10 points and four rebounds.National female coach Dave Causway coached all three Kwakwani teams. In the feature clash, he matched up against PC’s Willon Cameron.Although Kwakwani has a rich history of winning the older age division, the six-time champions trailed their opponents for most of the clash.After two opening buckets, Kwakwani relinquished their lead—a lead that they never got back.Richard Semple, who dominated the Festival, Regionals and All-Star Games, won his third MVP award after storming to 33 points for PC in the championship clash. He was an assassin from downtown after hitting four shots from beyond the arc. The youngster also powered his way into the middle for numerous buckets in the paint.Kellyann Sauers (with ball) was unstoppable with her right hand.Semple stamped his authority in the second half. Kwakwani had battled hard in the first three minutes of the third quarter to cut a nine-point half time lead to one and looked set to control the game, but Semple buried two shots from downtown, before powering himself down court to make a critical defensive play.The play of Semple stumped the Kwakwani side, as PC went on a 13-2 run to close the third.The East Coast school was able to increase the lead to 19 early in the fourth, but Kwakwani battled back to cut the deficit to 10, before the game ended at 89-79.Although Semple played extraordinary basketball, he had good support. Gabriel Lim, who led the side with 15 points in the first half, finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Rakin McDonald, who was also clinical, finished with 16 points and eight rebounds, while Jushawn Bayley added 13 points, six rebounds and three steals.Kwakwani were led by skipper Royon Shortt, who finished with 19 points and 20 rebounds. Hosea Conway added 14 points and eight rebounds.The Festival was sponsored by Edward B. Beharry and Company Ltd, The National Sports Commission, Banks DIH, Exxon Mobil, Bounty Ltd and John Fernandes Ltd.last_img read more
