Jackson Martínez meditates hanging his boots at the end of the season

first_imgJackson was the great signing of Atlético in the summer of 2015, for just over 37 million euros. But he never adapted to the rojiblanco style and problems with injuries ended up pushing him away. In February 2016, he was packing again for China. He joined the ranks of the Guangzhou Evergrande but there he could not be the shadow of the lethal striker he became, again afflicted by physical problems. Jackson Martínez meditates on ending his sports career. The 33-year-old Colombian striker is currently active in Portuguese Portimonense, where he had regained feelings last season. In recent times, ankle problems have been chasing him. It happened to him at Atlético and later in China, where he could not exhibit his Porto level either due to joint problems. Portimonense returned him to Europe and in Portugal, last season, he once again felt like a footballer and useful for a modest team. He finished as the top scorer of the set with nine goals in 28 games, but until the emergence of the coronavirus, his feelings were not those of last season. “I have to think about my health. I cannot be wrong. I know that I am not one hundred percent to give what I would like. I will think about everything until the end of the season,” he explained a few days ago in an interview on Sport TV. From Portugal. Now it is O Jogo who gives more details of his future. According to the Portuguese newspaper, the striker would be seriously considering the possibility of leaving football at the end of the current season, already having on the table the option of going to work for Portimonense in some way.Jackson feels that he is not physically at his best again and that this would be influencing his records. He had only scored three goals in 18 games until the break. According to O Jogo, the striker and his family have adapted very well to their life in the Algarve, very integrated, and that is why it would be appreciated to maintain their residence there.last_img read more

PISLM meeting concludes on high note

first_img…Guyana to craft land policyThe Partnership Initiative for Sustainable Land Management (PISLM) convened its third high-level session of sustainable land management in the Caribbean last week and according to members of the delegation, the meeting was fruitful and encouraging.The delegation of Caribbean representatives led by the Minister of State, Joseph Harmon (centre front row) at Thursday’s meetingThis was the position shared by representatives of the 10 participating Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) on Friday, during a press conference at the Marriott Hotel.Chairman of the PISLM Task Force and Commissioner of the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission, Trevor Benn explained that a number of recommendations and decisions were taken by the delegation, which featured persons from Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Guyana, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname.He noted that much of Guyana’s input would be aligned to the Green State Development Strategy, but there were plans to craft a national land policy.Benn related, “When it comes to the issue of sustainable land management, we are taking a number of steps, including for the first time in Guyana, we are going to be having a national land policy. We’re working on a national land policy, revising all of our land use plans. We are trying to make them more descriptive than prescriptive.”In his remarks, Jamaica’s Local Government and Community Development Minister, Desmond Mc Kenzie noted this region was prone to natural disasters and as such, proper land management was critical, especially in the heights of climate change.“The discussion centred on the Region and the Region’s response to critical areas. The areas of discussion involving lands speak to a much broader picture than just the question of lands because most of the Region is prone to natural disasters,” Mc Kenzie told media operatives.Agriculture and Lands Minister of Grenada, Yolande Bain-Horsford concentrated on the fact that her country was ahead in land management and soil degradation.“We have started a project in soil mapping and soil fertility. We are moving in the right direction. Also, we have a land policy and we’re also looking at a land bank project,” said the Grenadian Minister.Local Minister of State, Joseph Harmon had related on Thursday during his feature address that the Caribbean Community was on a developmental trajectory and many foreign territories were seeking the Region’s input in important environmental issues.According to him, achieving land degradation neutrality will improve livelihood and contribute to food security in these countries.Harmon said, “It is because of the importance which the world sees in what is happening in this region that they have identified and will continue to identify people from this region to speak on these important issues of land and climate in the world.“Guyana, as well as other Caribbean SIDS, has made substantial progress in these areas stated above and High-Level Meetings of this nature ensure that work continues with strong political support and policy directives,” he added.Some of the other areas discussed included soil care, the collaboration with Caricom on this partnership, support from the Region and the land degradation neutrality project. This provided a medium for the exchange of ideas and the formulating of actions from these decisions to better land management in these Caribbean states.Ambassador Troy Hollingsworth of the Foreign Affairs Ministry also used the opportunity to share his thoughts, noting that: “Poverty, achieving food security, reversing inequality and achieving gender equality all find solutions for health with respect to how we utilise the land. I believe it is important that we develop the approaches and integrated policies that will reinforce and accelerate progress.”Earlier this week, PISLM had organised a workshop for United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) national focal points from Guyana, Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Haiti, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre in Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown with the aim of setting the agenda for these sustainable land management discussions.last_img read more

Although he has a Nigerian passport, he has represented England at various junior levels and so needed to apply to change his international allegiance.Rohr had hoped to use Aina in the first clash against Cameroon but the FIFA clearance did not arrive in time.Nigeria have nine points from three matches in Group B in Africa zone qualifying, while Cameroon remain on two points.Zambia and Algeria have a point each and meet on Saturday in Lusaka.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Relentless season taking toll on City players- De Bruyne

first_img“I was feeling it from the first minute,” he said. “I’ve said it before — you feel great for 10 games, then you feel OK for 10 games, and then the rest you feel like shit.“You know, we’ve got to do what we’ve got to do. We’ve only got 15 or 16 players available at the moment so we need to get through it.”Injuries to Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, John Stones, David Silva, Fabian Delph, Phil Foden and Lukas Nmecha restricted City boss Guardiola to just six substitutes at Turf Moor.The runaway Premier League leaders are not in action again until Leicester City visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday — their longest gap between games since the November international break — and Guardiola has decided to give his entire squad three days off.“It will do us a lot of good,” said De Bruyne. “I’m going away, it doesn’t matter where.”City should have claimed all three points at the weekend after dominating the match.Danilo gave them a first-half lead but they were unable to add to it, with Raheem Sterling spurning a gilt-edged chance from close range before Johann Berg Gudmundsson claimed a late equaliser.“Nobody is complaining about the way we played,” said De Bruyne. “I think we played really well and we should have scored more but it happens and it’s not even bad defending, it’s just the way it goes sometimes.“Obviously it’s very hard and we haven’t got any players left, so maybe we feel a little bit of tiredness which makes it a little bit more difficult but I thought the way we played was exceptional.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kevin De Bruyne at the end of Manchester City’s 1-1 draw at Burnley on Saturday © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 5 – Kevin De Bruyne admits he is struggling physically as Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City chase glory on four fronts, hampered by a series of injuries to big-name players.The midfielder has missed only three of City’s 39 games in all competitions and says he was feeling tired during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Burnley.last_img read more

AC Milan challenge UEFA ban at sports court

first_img0Shares0000Players say AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso’s recipe of hard work is the secret that has got the seven-time European champions winning consistently againLAUSANNE, Switzerland, Jul 19- AC Milan’s senior executives were at the world’s top sports court on Thursday fighting to overturn a European ban for breaking UEFA’s financial fair play rules.Managing director Marco Fassone, chief financial officer Valentina Montanari and a team of lawyers lobbied the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn the Italian club’s Europa League ban for the upcoming season. The hearing lasted all day with a decision due within 24 hours, a CAS spokesman said.“We expect a decision in the morning,” Fassone said after the hearing.“It’s difficult to say how I feel (about how it went) after a long, intense day, but I can tell you we explored every detail we could,” he said.AC Milan have spent a troubled 15 months since they were bought by Chinese businessman Li Yonghong from Silvio Berlusconi in April 2017.The takeover was partly funded by a high-interest loan of 300 million  euros ($348 million) from American hedge fund Elliott Management.When Milan failed to make a repayment at the start of July, Elliott moved to take over, a process which is due to be ratified by club shareholders on July 21.The Chinese owners spent more than 200 million euros on players last summer and that, combined with the terms of the Elliott loan, triggered the interest of UEFA.At the end of June, UEFA ruled that Milan were in breach of “the break-even requirement.”That specifically bars clubs from taking on debt to fund day-to-day obligations such as wages or transfer fees. UEFA banned the club from its competitions.Despite the investment in players, the club finished sixth in Serie A and only qualified for the Europa League, Europe’s second tier tournament.Fassone has blamed the club’s woes on Berlusconi’s management.The seven-time European champions are the biggest club to have been punished under the fair play rules.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
