first_imgInto the quarterfinals for the first time in our history 💪We think we are special ones…🔴⚪ #DieRotenBullen #RBLSPURS— RB Leipzig English (@RBLeipzig_EN) March 10, 2020Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 10:10 pm’WE’RE IN A BAD SITUATION’Some strong words from Dele after tonight’s hammering.He told BT Sport: “This is the Champions League and if you don’t step up you’ll be punished.“We had to show our maturity and fight but we didn’t do that.“We’re gutted and have to apologise to the fans for travelling all this way and losing like that.“We have to fight, we can’t hide. The reality is we’re in a bad situation but we can be the ones to turn it around.“Our mentality wasn’t strong enough, we have to stay together.“It’s a massive game at the weekend (against Man Utd) and only we can turn it around.“The players are mature enough to know we’re not doing good enough.”Sam Street11 Mar 2020, 10:01 pmGREAT LEIP FORWARDRB Leipzig certainly showed Arsenal how to defend a one-goal lead at home.Despite a good start from Spurs, the result never seemed in doubt after Sabitzer fired the first past Hugo Lloris.Any Tottenham fans hoping for an Ajax-style second half comeback were left hugely disappointed after a limp surrender even by this season’s low standards.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 9:54 pmFULL TIME! RB LEIPZIG 3 SPURS 0 (4-0 AGG)And it’s all over here in Germany!Spurs have been well and truly beaten 3-0 on the night and 4-0 on aggregate.Two goals from Sabitzer in the first half set Leipzig on their way.And Forsberg made sure of the result with a final strike late in the second half.It’s been a terrible night for Mourinho and all the Spurs fans who travelled to Germany.The Londoners were short on energy, fight and creativity this evening.And things get even harder as they take on a resurgent Man Utd side in the Premier League this weekend.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 9:46 pmGOAL! RB LEIPZIG 3 SPURS 0 (4-0 AGG)88′ – FORSBERG!He’s only just come off the bench.But Forsberg seals the win for Leipzig as he takes advantage of some dire Spurs defending.The ball bounces around the box and nobody can clear it.Forsberg comes charging in and fires into the back of the net.He’d only been on the pitch for 30 seconds!Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 9:38 pmRB LEIPZIG 2 SPURS 0 (3-0 AGG)80’This game ended a long time ago.Spurs are showing a distinct lack of energy as their Champions League exit draws nearer.Considering they were finalists last year, this is a very poor way to bow out of Europe.Lo Celso, Spurs’ best player, is taken off for Fernandes.And that alone proves Mourinho has now given up on the game.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 9:31 pmRB LEIPZIG 2 SPURS 0 (3-0 AGG)73’Turns out Mukiele swallowed his tongue after that ball to his face.But the defender is doing much better now after receiving treatment.Get well soon. TOTTENHAM were limp in Leipzig as their Champions League campaign ended with a wimper.But there were bigger concerns among the paying public for Red Bull’s Nordi Mukiele.The RB Leipzig defender was stretchered off in front of worried team-mates after being smacked in the chin by the ball.And it was later revealed that he had briefly swallowed his tongue after being knocked unconscious.The Frenchman is now reported to be in stable condition however.A brace from captain Marcel Sabitzer was followed up by a late strike from Emil Forsberg with his first touch as RB Leipzig cruised into their first ever Champions League quarter-final.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 10:30 pm’CAN’T BLAME THE PLAYERS’Mourinho insists he will not blame his players for tonight’s Champions League exit, instead putting it down to Spurs’ injury woes.He told BT Sport: “In this moment it’s very difficult.“They’re very strong and it’s difficult for us to score.“Their physicality is impressive, the defenders win duels, the midfield is intense, the attack fast.“They deserve to go through, they were the best team.“My players tried to give what they could give and that’s it. When you don’t have more to give, you give what you can.“I never blame players with some difficulties. I can’t ask more from them.“Sometimes difficult moments can prepare the future in a better way.“There’s nobody to blame when in every match we have a traumatic injury.“You come to the Champions League and look at our bench and the pitch with Tanganga and Sessegnon.“I can’t blame the players because they gave what they can.“People say excuses but I’m pretty sure the injures are bad for anyone.“We go until our limits which is what the boys are doing. Let’s see how we end the season.”Sam Street11 Mar 2020, 10:21 pmHere comes Jose Mourinho…Sam Street11 Mar 2020, 10:18 pmNOT SO SPECIAL NOWRB Leipzig couldn’t resist the inevitable Jose Mourinho dig… Momentos de drama en Leipzig.Nordi Mukiele tuvo que salir en camilla por una fuerte lesión.

RB LEIPZIG 2 SPURS 0 (3-0 AGG)22′ – SABITZER!It’s the captain again! And this time it does stand!Angelino makes a fool of Aurier as he breaks into open space on the left.He swings a cross in and Sabitzer gets his head on the end of it.The ball goes over the line before being palmed out by Lloris.But there’s no question it was in.And Spurs are facing a real hammering here in Germany.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 8:20 pmRB LEIPZIG 1 SPURS 0 (2-0 AGG)20′ – DISALLOWED GOALGermany striker Werner thinks he’s bagged his second of the tie after poking home from Agelino’s cross.But Spurs breathe a sigh of relief as the strike is quickly chalked off due to Werner being offside.He’s not happy at all.However, with the way Spurs are playing right now, it may not be long until he finds the back of the net again.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 8:15 pmRB LEIPZIG 1 SPURS 0 (2-0 AGG)15’Spurs are all over the place here.They can’t keep hold of the ball and are being exposed down their left by Leipzig right-back Mukiele.The defender first gets in on goal but fires his shot into the side netting.He’s soon back creating chaos again but finds his path to goal blocked by Alderweireld.Not a good opening 15 mins for Mourinho here.Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 8:11 pmGOAL! RB LEIPZIG 1 SPURS 0 (2-0 AGG)10′ – SABITZER!A bad mistake from Lloris has left Spurs right in the lurch.Werner plays in Leipzig captain Sabitzer.And the midfield pulls the trigger from outside the box.A low drive smashes towards Lloris and he looks to have reached it.But soft hands from the Frenchman sees the ball evade his grasp and hit the back of the net.Oh dear!Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 8:05 pmRB LEIPZIG 0 SPURS 0 (1-0 AGG)5’And we’re underway here in the state of Saxony.Spurs are most definitely playing a five-man defence with Dier sandwiched between Alderweireld and Tanganga.Expect to see the Englishman push forward to support the midfield tonight.Spurs are stroking the ball around their own half at the moment.There aren’t many pockets of space on the pitch right now though.That’s probably because Leipzig are playing an identical five-defender system!Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 7:59 pmSPUR OF THE MOMENTThe two sides are on the field as the Champions League anthem blares out at the Red Bull Arena.Of course, there are no handshakes between the two sides due to the coronavirus threat.Indeed, Spurs fans can count themselves lucky they’re able to even attend, with tonight’s other clash between Valencia and Atalanta played behind closed doors.Both sets of supporters here in Germany are in fine voice already.But could this be one of the last matches in Europe to allow supporters inside the stadium?Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 7:53 pmLUC’S INNo Kane, no Son, no Bergwijn.The pressure is very much on Lucas to deliver tonight.Spurs fans are still raving about his hat-trick which sealed their place in last season’s final.Can Lucas do it again tonight?center_img 🇧🇷 @LucasMoura7, let’s go get it! #UCL ⚪️ #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 10, 2020Anthony Chapman11 Mar 2020, 7:47 pmMOUR TO COMEJose Mourinho is feeling bullish ahead of one of the biggest tests of his career.The Portuguese has won at every club he’s managed.And Mourinho isn’t about to let Spurs go without bringing silverware to North London.He said: “I believe Tottenham is not going to be my only club without silverware,” said the boss.“I won it at every club and I believe I am going to do it also with Tottenham.“I am here for three or four months. I took on the team in a very difficult situation and now it is even more difficult with so many problems we’re having. “But I believe in me, in the players, in the club and I believe that during my contract I am going to help the club to do it.“It’s not me winning, it’s me helping the club and the players to do it.”Load more entries…last_img read more

first_imgWales closure– as High Court still to hear severance matterSome four months have passed since counsel for the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), Ashton Chase, SC, compiled and filed documents for the matter regarding the non-payment of severance packages to hundreds of sugar workers to be called up at the High Court. While the reasons for the delay in the commencement of court proceedings remain unclear, GAWU General Secretary Seepaul Narine feels many of the workers who were attached to the Wales Sugar Estate are left to face life with depleted finances.Narine told Guyana Times earlier this week that the Union has yet to receive word from the courts pertaining to the delay. “We are waiting on the Judge to affix a date for the hearing. It’s a few months now and we are disappointed that the court is taking such a long time. We have no indication as to why it’s taking so long and why the matter is not up for hearing as yet and people are there, they’re not having work. They’re just wondering; they’re in the wilderness,” observed the GAWU General Secretary.Over the years, GAWU has filed a number of court actions but according to the Union representative, it is not a usual occurrence that cases take such lengthy periods of time before it’s called up for hearings, whether at the preliminary stage or for full trials.“It is not normal for matters to take so long; we don’t know what is the reason. We would all like [the case to be heard] immediately. Workers are being affected and it’s in the interest of all to get it called,” the GAWU General Secretary pointed out.GAWU President Komal Chand had told Guyana Times in May that many workers were at that time, depending on the outstanding payments to make investments for their future.“It’s bothersome as the people are depending on their money to see how they could work on their future endeavours,” Chand highlighted on May 21.While several workers had their service transferred to Uitvlugt Sugar Estate, the remaining workers were promised severance payments, some since December 2016 and others by February 2017. However, it was at a community-level meeting between Wales residents and several Government Ministers, including Agriculture Minister Noel Holder, that Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan told the gathering that Government had no money to pay the severance to which the workers are entitled. Some former workers informed this publication on Saturday that senior officials at the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) are reportedly still operating out of their offices at the Wales Estate. However, much of the equipment, including the cane gantry has been reportedly transferred to the Uitvlugt Estate.The Wales Estate Closure was rationalised by Government as a cost-saving measure due to billions of dollars that was allocated to the declining sugar industry. Since then, the scaling down of other estates across the country has been announced. Many stakeholders had however called for social impact studies to be carried out to assess how communities across the sugar belt would be affected with sure closures. Some estimates have pegged a figure of some 10,000 sugar workers being directly affected by estate closures, in addition to their family members and the local economies that depend on the sugar industry.

first_imgPistone Mutamba scored twice for Wazito coming in between Ezekiel Odera and Isuza’s goals.Wazito were reduced to 10 men three minutes into the second half after Brian Ayacko was sent to the showers after a second yellow card.The victory took the 13-time KPL champions to 13 points, three shy of arch rivals and leaders Gor Mahia FC.It was yet another high scoring, come-from-behind defeat after they came from 3-1 down over the weekend to beat Mathare United 4-3 at the same venue.Head coach Dennis Kitambi picked up his third consecutive victory in charge since stepping into the suspended Robert Matano’s boots, and he has continually shown he can step up to the plate if called upon on a permanent basis.AFC Leopards went the break tied at 1-1, and it was probably a relieving result having lost an early penalty and Wazito going ahead courtesy of Mutamba’s goal.Ingwe had the bulk of the first few chances of the game, first Brian Marita attempting his luck with a shot from distance after a counter attack which however went wide.Two minutes later, Whyvonne Isuza should have done better with a lone header at the edge of the six yard box after being left isolated by the Wazito defense, Marita’s cross landing graciously on his path.-Odera penalty miss-On the quarter hour mark, Ingwe was presented with an opportunity to break the deadlock from the penalty spot after Emmanuel Tienan was adjudged to have brought down Odera as the two attempted to attack a cross from Simon Mburu.However, Odera could not convert after taking responsibility on himself, Wazito keeper Philip Odhiambopushing away the ball with one arm.Ten minutes later, AFC were punished for that miss when the lanky Mutamba rose in the middle of a forest of Ingwe markers to head home from a Joachim Omollo free kick.But, despite going down, AFC still dictated the tempo of the game but could not get the chances at goal with Wazito defending well and in numbers.The home side had two chances back to back in the 41st minute, but none could take them back on level terms. First, Salim Abdallah’s header from Marita’s corner went straight to the keeper.Almost immediately, Odera couldn’t get a decent header after keeper Odhiambo missed the ball going for a Mburu long through, instead brushing the ball over.However, Odera made amends four minutes later when he levelled matters with an easily taken overhead kick after Marvin Nabwire brought down into his path a cross from Yussuf Mainge.Three minutes into the second half, the stars seemed to have aligned in AFC’s favour when Ayacko was sent to the dressing room after a second yellow card for a sinister foul on Mburu who had produced some silk skill to lift the ball over him.From the resultant free-kick, AFC went ahead when Whyvonne Isuza headed the ball into an empty net when Odera beat keeper Philip Odhiambo to the ball from Mburu’s delivery.Ingwe’s joy was short lived however when Mutamba restored parity, coming to the end of a swift counter attack with Joe Waithira breaking away and cutting back the ball for Mutamba to score.Once again, Ouna’s charges coiled back to a disciplined defensive shape, frustrating AFC to the bare minimum of chances.In the 78th minute however, they were found off their feet when David Oswe brought down Nabwire inside the box after a swiftly taken throw-in, referee George Mwai pointing straight to the spot much to the disgust of Wazito players.However, keeper Odhiambo stepped up, punching away Majid’s effort from 12 yards out.But Isuza wiped away Ingwe’s blushes when he struck low inside the box after Nabwire chested down and laid up for him a cross from Ezekiel Odera.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000AFC Leopards fans cheering their team.

first_img1 Adrien Rabiot Tottenham have made a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain’s highly-rated midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to reports in Italy.Italian newspaper Il Tempo is claiming Spurs’ technical director Franco Baldini has made the France Under-21 international one of the club’s top targets when the transfer window re-opens in January.Rabiot only signed a new deal with PSG back in October as his contract was set to expire at the end of the season, but reports suggest that was down to the French side wanting a bigger fee for him in the New Year and hinting they would not stand in his way if he wanted to leave.The 19-year-old has failed to secure a regular first-team place under Laurent Blanc this season and would relish the chance to showcase his talents in England.Arsenal and Roma have also been linked with a move for Rabiot, but it now seems like Tottenham are in pole position to clinch his signature.last_img read more
