Majority of fans say better if Messi had left Barcelona – AS survey

The majority of 26,000-plus fans surveyed in an AS poll have said that they disagree with Lionel Messi’s decision to stay at Barcelona.

Lionel Messi’s decision to stay at Barcelona has not gone down well with fans. Of the more than 26,000 participants surveyed in an AS poll who were asked: ‘Do you agree with Messi staying at Barcelona?’, 61.6% have said ‘No’, while 38.4% have stated ‘Yes’.

These results indicate the significant loss of support for the Argentine superstar. The soap opera involving Messi and Barcelona – which began early last week after the player sent a burofax demanding to leave the club – ended on Friday when Messi himself confirmed he would stay at Camp Nou in an interview with Goal.

As Barça insisted the only way Messi could leave was through the payment of his €700million release clause, the club’s talisman and captain has accepted he has no choice but to stay – as goes his account in the interview.

Read the full Messi interview here.

Messi: “I would never go to court against Barcelona”

“I thought and was sure that I was free to leave, the president always said that at the end of the season I could decide if I stayed or not. Now they cling to the fact that I did not say it before June 10, when it turns out that on June 10 we were competing for LaLiga in the middle of this awful coronavirus and this disease altered the whole season,” Messi told Goal.

“And this is the reason why I am going to continue in the club. Now I am going to continue in the club because the president told me that the only way to leave was to pay the €700million clause, and that this is impossible.

“There was another way and it was to go to trial. I would never go to court against Barça because it is the club that I love, which gave me everything since I arrived, it is the club of my life, I have made my life here. Barça gave me everything and I gave it everything. I know that it never crossed my mind to take Barça to court.”

Messi slams Barcelona president Bartomeu

Barcelona have stayed relatively silent following the interview, apart from a post on their twitter page including a photo of Messi accompanied by a quote from the star: “I will give it my all. My love for Barça will never change.”

But the reality is Messi still wants to leave Barcelona, a fact that was very clear from the star’s Goal interview, during which he also made severe criticisms of club president, Josep Bartomeu.

“The burofax was to make it official in some way. Throughout the year I had been telling the president that I wanted to leave, that the time had come to seek new goals and new directions in my career. He told me all the time: ‘We’ll talk, not now,’ this and that, but nothing [happened]. The president did not give me a clue at what he was really saying,” said Messi.

“Sending the burofax was making it official that I wanted to go and that I was free and the optional year – I was not going to use it and I wanted to go. It was not to make a mess, or to go against the club, but the way to make it official because my decision had been made.”

Boxing expert Amin Lamptey predicts victory for Dogboe as youngster faces Avalos

Isaac Dogboe has received the backing of boxing expert Amin Lamptey to beat American boxer, Chris Avalos, tonight.

Dogboe’s return from back-to-back defeats to Emmanuel Navarette is an eight-round bout against the American at the MGM Grand Arena.

The 25-year-old is returning to the ring with the objective of reviving his career and a victory over the 30-year-old pugilist will be the perfect take-off package.

With Dogboe fighting in a new division, concerns have been raised about his chances but Lamptey believes Dogboe knows the division too well to start on a bad footing.

He details Dogboe early fight as featherweight boxers and expects a ‘massive comeback’ from him.

“Dogboe became a world champion through Super Bantamweight but his comeback fight is going to be a featherweight. Avalos is a credible opponent with an impressive record. It’s an eight-rounder and it’s a perfect warm-up fight. Isaac is going to win but it won’t be on a silver platter” “Dogboe is crossing over from bantamweight to featherweight so needs time to adjust and acclimatize to that division. He started in featherweight and fought some boxers in that weight class. So he knows what’s in that division. All that he needs to do is to sharpen his prowess and ensure his artistry is on. Dogboe is going to make a comeback and it’s going to be massive”.

Pressure to deliver

After his two defeats against Navarette, Dogboe is under intense pressure to return to victory way. The pressure has also been compounded with assertions by some pundits that anything short of victory could spell an end to his world title hopes.

But Amin Lamptey trusts him to overcome the pressure and win tonight’s bout. Lamptey reckons the pressure must spur Dogboe on to victory.

“Boxing is a gamble or like a lottery, you either win, lose or draw and he is aware of it. His psychologist must have worked on him. He is making a comeback so he has overcome every single thing he encountered after the Naverette fight”.

“Coincidentally Navarette has also moved bantamweight, Magdelino has also moved so it is going to be exciting in that division and Dogboe is aware of this and that’s going to spur him on.

It’s fair for all GPL clubs to receive same amount from the FIFA Relief fund – Bechem CEO

Chief Executive Officer of Bechem United FC, Nana Kwasi Darlington has said it’s fair for all the 18-Premier League teams to receive the same amount from the FIFA Relief fund to be shared by the Ghana Football Association.

The GFA announced that it will disburse US$270,000 to the Premier League teams with each club expected to earn US$15,000.

Earlier reports in the local media had indicated that the two Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak were to receive a bigger portion of the fund.

According to the Bechem CEO,“It is unfair to suggest Kotoko and Hearts should be given a bigger portion of FIFA COVID-19 relief fund. It is childish to say that Kotoko and Hearts should receive a bigger amount than the rest of the clubs. Which clubs do they play against in the league?”, he quizzed on Hello FM.

“We all play in the elite league which is the premier so you cannot indicate that some clubs are bigger than others. This is not a private Sponsorship where clubs should raise concerns about how the money should be shared. This is FIFA COVID-19 relief fund. So we cannot share on that basis”.

He added: “The most important thing is all Ghana Premier League clubs are getting the same amount from the stimulus package contrary to earlier reports that some were going to earn more than others. Once we’re getting the same amount, its okay”.

Lampard lined up his side in a 4-3-3 formation, very similar to the one named in Amsterdam. Kepa Arrizabalaga started once again in goal, with a back four of César Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori, and Marcos Alonso in front of him. While Lampard claimed earlier that Chelsea’s best and most consistent midfielder, N’Golo Kanté, was back from injury, he seemed to still be cautious about his playing time. The French international was only deemed fit enough for the bench as Jorginho, Mason Mount, and Mateo Kovačić made up the midfield three. The front three was the only difference to the lineup that played against Ajax late last month, with Christian Pulisic getting the nod over Callum Hudson-Odoi. Alongside Pulisic, Willian and Tammy Abraham led the line.

The away side’s 4-2-3-1 saw a different back four than the one that started two weeks ago with Sergiño Dest relegated to the bench in favour of Noussair Mazraoui who had Joël Veltman, Daley Blind, and Nicolás Tagliafico start alongside him in front of goalkeeper André Onana. A double pivot in midfield consisted of Lisandro Martínez and Donny van de Beek, with Hakim Ziyech, David Neres, and Quincy Promes in front of them. Dušan Tadić led the line as a number nine up top.

Nigerian Athlete Breaks Usain Bolts Record As Fastest Man On Earth

This competition took place at the ClydeMart Track & Field Stadium, Baylor University – Waco, Texas. – Nigerian Athlete Breaks Usain Bolts Record As Fastest Man On Earth

This Nigerian sprinter and the new world faster man is known as Divine Oduduru. This new record was set in 2019. He competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics Games coming out as 7th in the 200m. The former 100m African Youth Champion ran sub-10 over the weekend in an invitational where he set this new outstanding record.

According to Africa Athletics (@atheleticaffrica), Divine Oduduru, (@odudurudivine1) runs the fastest time in the world in 2019, setting lifetime record of 9.94 (that is 0.8 m/s), at the Michael Johnson Invitational in Waco, Texas.

Less than an hour after running the 100 meters in 9.94 seconds, the Texas Tech sprinter ran the 200 in 19.76 — both times wind-legal to the admiration of the crowd present.

“In my 35 years of coaching, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Tech coach Wes Kittley said after Oduduru recorded the double wins in the 100m and 200m events. “To run that 9.94 and then 40 minutes later, ran the 200. This was a really tight schedule and pretty spectacular performances that close together.”
