first_imgMADRID, Spain (Reuters) – Spanish footballers are surprised and indignant that an agreement to stage regular season La Liga matches in the United States has been made without their consent, their union said yesterday.La Liga’s organising body announced last week in partnership with multinational media, sports and entertainment group Relevent that it plans to hold Spanish top flight games in the U.S. in the future.La Liga has not yet given details on when the first game across the Atlantic would take place, how many games per season would be involved, how they would be selected or whether it would compensate the loss of home advantage for teams involved.In response, the Spanish Footballers Union (AFE) said it was holding a meeting yesterday to discuss the issue and added to the criticism which it made at the time of the announcement.The AFE said that “captains and players” from La Liga sides would participate.“The AFE and the players do not understand unilateral decisions,” said a statement published yesterday. It said the players were “surprised and indignant that their views were not taken into account in an agreement which affects them directly.”“La Liga is distancing the fans from the players, which damages the spectacle and the essence of football,” it added.“The players again feel they are marginalised from decision-making (even though) they are the fundamental actors and their opinions are essential for the growth of Spanish football.“The players demand that our opinions be heard and taken into account in any future negotiation or decision by La Liga which affects them.”The AFE also demanded “balance and common sense” in decision-making and complained about the kickoff times for some La Liga games this season.“The players are again being punished by the kick-off times of certain matches, which can damage their health because of the weather conditions or the lack of recovery time,” it said.“The AFE points out that certain kick-off times can be harmful for everyone who is involved in the spectacle – players, fans, and referees, whose health can be endangered.”last_img read more

first_imgCrystal Palace will start its Premier League campaign against Southampton with eight first-team players unavailable, manager Roy Hodgson said.Striker Christian Benteke is injured, as are five defenders, according to Hodgson, who will decide whether new addition Ebereci Eze will be able to play on Saturday.“We have a lot of injuries at the moment – eight players who are not available for this match is not a good situation. Five of our full-backs are missing, as well as two of the players in front positions,” Hodgson told a news conference.Eze, who moved from second division Queens Park Rangers, suffered an injury during one of the pre-season controls and recently resumed training.Hodgson’s attacking options will be strengthened by Mishi Batshuai after the Belgian international joins the club on loan from Chelsea.“I am very happy for the transfer of Batshuai. Mishi is a player we have admired for a long time,” said Hodgson.Crystal Palace are without the injured Patrick van Anhalt (shoulder injury), Mamadou Saho (thigh), James Tomkins (thigh) and Gary Cahill (thigh).

first_img Predators sign reigning Vezina winner Pekka Rinne to 2-year contract The players’ apology read:”We want to apologize publicly to Marty Raymond, our teammates and coaches for out comments in Phoenix, Arizona on October 29. Out private conversation was recorded without out knowledge or consent. We’re passionate about our team, and focusing on growing together. We are grateful for the support of our fans and organization. This is an important learning experience, and we will do better.”The video, which has since been taken down, was recorded by a camera that was mounted by the rear-view mirror of a car, according to a report by the Ottawa Citzen.According to the report, the five-minute video was presumably recorded by an Uber driver and it appeared that none of the players knew the conversation was being filmed. The video ended up on both YouTube and Twitter.“Marty Raymond, the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power-play and the worst PK within a calendar year,” Duchene was caught saying, in reference to Raymond, who is in charge of penalty-killing this season and directed the power-play in 2017-18.Wideman, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, chimed in with his own remarks about Raymond. “Do you notice that when (Raymond) runs the video, if you actually do pay attention, he doesn’t ever teach you anything?” Wideman said. “He just commentates what’s happening.”Duchene replied with more criticism.“Here’s the other thing, too,” he said, “we don’t change anything, ever. So why do we even have a meeting? I haven’t paid attention in three weeks.”Tierney, seated behind the driver, looked up the team’s stats on his phone and found Ottawa is 29th of 31 NHL teams in terms of penalty killing.It wasn’t just the coaches or the team that the players took shots at. Wideman apparently shared his displeasure with starting goaltender Craig Anderson and the Senators inability to slow down opponents. It wasn’t clear if Wideman was talking about the Golden Knights or the Coyotes, who both topped Ottawa during its West Coast trip. A number of Senators were caught on video openly mocking assistant coach Martin Raymond and joking about the team’s penalty-killing abilities.Forward Matt Duchene, defensemen Chris Wideman and Thomas Chabot as well as recently acquired Chris Tierney were among the players making fun of the 5-6-3 Ottawa squad.  Kings fire coach John Stevens, assistant Don Nachbaurcenter_img Head coach Guy Boucher later released a statement addressing the video while the players apologized to the coaching staff and their other teammates.”Nothing is more important to us during this rebuild than making sure our players and coaches are fully committed to our plan, our values and our system of play,” Boucher said. “We have every confidence in Marty Raymond’s coaching; in the effort and determination of our team; and in the sincerity of our players’ apology. We are now treating this as a team matter, and will be making no further comment to the media.”  Related News “The best part about their break is the fact that we don’t even slow them up. They come in with, like, blazing speed too. Andy’s ‘like oh, s—,’” he said.Other players that were seen on video getting out of the car were defenseman Dylan DeMelo and winger Alex Formenton, who is no longer with the Senators after leaving to return to his junior club.last_img read more
