Manchester United crash out as Wolfsburg win to top Group B

first_imgVfL Wolfsburg reached the Champions League last 16 and dealt a knockout blow to Manchester United with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday that secured top spot in Group B and condemned their opponents to the Europa League.United had taken an early lead in Germany when Anthony Martial expertly sidefooted home after 10 minutes, but Brazilian centre back Naldo drew the Germans level with a precise volley and Portuguese midfielder Vieirinha swept home to make it 2-1.United were set to reach the next round when an own goal by Josuha Guilavogui levelled the scores at 2-2 with eight minutes left but Naldo grabbed his second and left the visitors needing PSV Eindhoven to lose at home to CSKA to reach the next round.For a brief moment late in the second half it looked like United would get their wish, but PSV rallied to level and then snatch a 2-1 win that left them second in the standings on 10 points, two ahead of United and two behind Wolfsburg.Other scoresManchester City 4Borussia 2PSG 2Shakhtar Donetsk 0Real Madrid 8Malmo 0PSV 2CSKA Moscow 1Benfica 1Atletico Madrid 2Galatasaray 1Astana 1Sevilla 1Juventus 0last_img read more

AC Milan face European ban after second FFP case

first_imgSeven-time European champions AC Milan have been referred to European governing body UEFA’s financial regulator for failing to meet the break-even requirement for the second year in a row.UEFA initially gave AC Milan a two-year ban from European club competition for breaking its financial fair play (FFP) rules last summer but the Serie A side successfully appealed against that sanction at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Under UEFA’s financial rules, clubs are not allowed to make losses of more than 30million euros (£26million) over three seasons, a cap UEFA believed AC Milan breached between 2015-17 when they spent £200million on transfers.AC Milan, however, managed to persuade sport’s highest court that their finances would improve under the ownership of American hedge fund Elliott Management Corporation, which had assumed control of the club last summer when former owner Li Yonghong missed a repayment on the loan he had taken to buy the club in 2017.As a result of the appeal, the 18-time Italian champions were given until June 2021 to balance their books or receive a one-year ban from European club football, lost almost £11million in broadcasting revenue and prize money from last season’s Europa League campaign and had a 21-man UEFA squad limit imposed on them for the next two seasons.But in a short statement on Wednesday, UEFA announced that the investigatory chamber of its Club Financial Control Body was sending a new case against them to its adjudicatory chamber, this time for the three-year period between 2016-18.“This referral is not related to the decision that was made by the CFCB adjudicatory chamber in December 2018 concerning the previous monitoring period and was covering the reporting periods ending in 2015, 2016 and 2017,” it said, adding that AC Milan have also appealed against the December ruling.AC Milan are currently fourth in Serie A, five points behind city rivals Inter, with seven games to play. They have also reached the semi-finals of the Italian Cup and host Lazio in the second leg on April 24, after a 0-0 draw in Rome in February. They did not progress to the Europa League’s knockout rounds, though.Former Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has been running the club since December and Press Association Sport understands the Rossoneri are one of the clubs pressing for radical changes to the Champions League format that would lead to qualification being based on historic performance in European competitions, as opposed to recent domestic success.UEFA’s decision to start another financial fair play case against AC Milan comes at a time when some in the game have wondered if the governing body still had the stomach to take on Europe’s most famous clubs after recent legal setbacks and the prospect of even bigger fights to come with Manchester City and Paris St Germain.last_img read more

Liverpool FC transfer news: Nice hold talks with Reds misfit concerning transfer

first_imgNice are the latest side to test the water over a deal for unwanted Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.The Ligue 1 club have held talks with the Merseysiders about the Italy international, who was not at the Reds’ Melwood training ground on Thursday having been given permission to speak to the French side.However, a deal is still some way off as no fee has been agreed and coach Lucien Favre has certain expectations of the 26-year-old, who is surplus to requirements at Anfield and is not in manager Jurgen Klopp’s plans.“I don’t know him personally, but if he runs and wants to help the youngsters, then why not?” Favre told a press conference.“If he doesn’t want to run, then there’s no way he’ll come here.”Swiss side FC Sion have also expressed an interest in Balotelli, but it is understood that is not being taken too seriously by Liverpool.On Wednesday president Christian Constantin said: “I can confirm that we are talking and negotiations are under way.“Obviously I cannot know whether it will have a positive conclusion or not.” 1 Mario Balotelli last_img read more

Stars of diski: South Africa’s football greats

first_imgBafana Bafana are on the up, once again wearing the badge with pride. One day we’re likely to talk about this group of players with the same reverence as our legendary heroes – Steve “Kalamazoo” Mokone, Pule “Ace” Ntsoelengoe, Jomo Sono and Kaizer Motaung. Steve “Kalamazoo” Mokone (front row, far right) in the 1957 to 1958 squad for Dutch football club Heracles Almelo. Mokone is so beloved in the Netherlands that there is a street named after him in Amsterdam. (Image: Salmon Palangana)Football-mad South Africa has had its share of greats, men who have not only wowed their countrymen, but have gone on to fly the flag in other countries as well. Among these legends are men who were stars long before the game was just about money. They were men whose reputations were built on their skill, and not the size of their wallet.Early starsAmong South Africa’s early football exports were Steve “Kalamazoo” Mokone, Pule “Ace” Ntsoelengoe, Jomo Sono and Kaizer Motaung.Once signed for Barcelona (he never played a single game at the Palau Blaugrana arena) Mokone was the first black South African to play professional football in Europe. After signing up for English club Coventry City in 1955, Mokone went on to achieve superstar status playing for the Dutch side Heracles and later for Torino in Italy.At the time he was one of a handful of players to earn £10 000 a year. By 1959 he was rated as one of the best soccer players in Europe, and was being compared to the all-time greats of the game.Ntsoelengoe was a legend with Kaizer Chiefs Football Club in the 1970s before moving to the United States for 11 seasons. He was in the North American Soccer League (NASL) all-star team in 1979 and 1982 and was inducted into the US Soccer Hall of Fame in 2003. Ace Ntsoelengoe in the 1976 Minnesota Kicks squad. (Image: Stimulated Faculties)Sono, owner of Jomo Cosmos FC, had a tough childhood. His father, Orlando Pirates midfielder Eric “Scara” Bhamuza Sono, died in a car crash and his mother abandoned him. Being from Orlando East in Soweto, Orlando Pirates was his home club before he moved on to play for the New York Cosmos, where one of his team-mates was the legendary player Pelé.Jomo Sono in action against Angelo DiBernado in 1982. (Image: NASL Jerseys) Motaung – “Chincha-Guluva” as he was affectionately known because of his dribbling skills – played for Orlando Pirates. After a successful stint with US club Atlanta Chiefs he came back and formed the club Kaizer Chiefs, one of the most revered teams in South African football and the biggest rival to Orlando Pirates.A 22-year-old Kaizer Motaung with Brazilian football legend Pele in 1968. (Image: NASL Jerseys) Class of ’96Fast-forward a few decades and a new crop of players sprang up who would go on to be known as the Class of ’96 after winning the Africa Cup of Nations, or Afcon, two years into South Africa’s new democracy.From that crop Lucas “Rhoo” Radebe, Doctor “16V” Khumalo and Phil “Chippa” Masinga stand out for also appealing internationally and having great careers.Watch highlights of Bafana Bafana’s victory against Tunisia in the final of the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations:Radebe plied his trade with Kaizer Chiefs before leaving them in 1994 and going to Leeds United in the UK. Leeds player of the year in 1998 he became club captain and remains a hero to the fans at Elland Road, the clubs home. The English band Kaiser Chiefs, all Leeds fans, named the band in honour of Kaizer Chiefs, Radebe’s first club.Khumalo, nicknamed after the Volkswagen GTI, a popular car in the township of Soweto at the time was a dribbling wizard that could read the game well. He was the guy that passed to Masinga to score the winning goal for the Afcon title. Khumalo played for the Moroka Swallows reserves before going to Kaizer Chiefs and then on to play for LA Galaxy in the US.Masinga scored the winning goal in the Afcon final of 1996 and brought South Africa to a standstill. A lanky striker with a thunderous shot, Masinga made use of his height advantage very well to score many goals during his illustrious career. He played for Jomo Cosmos and Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa before going to Leeds United and Italy’s Bari.The millennium revelationsBenni McCarthy is the only South African player to have ever won the European Cup Champions League. He is probably the most decorated South African players having won the Eredivisie with Ajax Amsterdam; Portuguese League with Porto under Jose Mourinho; and, a championship treble with Orlando Pirates where he retired in 2013.Watch Benni McCarthy’s top 10 goals for AFC Ajax:Aaron Mokoena is the first and only South African player with a century caps (107). He represented South Africa in four African Cup of Nations (1998, 2002, 2004, 2008), two World Cups (2002 and 2010) and the 2000 Summer Olympics. He was the captain of the South African team in the FIFA 2010 World Cup and was also Portsmouth FC captain in 2009 in the UK’s Premier League.Still playing regularly in the top flight league in South Africa, Siyabonga Nomvete can still put many a younger striker to shame. Having played in several European leagues, and now Moroka Swallows in the Premier Soccer League, Nomvete has represented Bafana Bafana since 6 May 1999, and he played in the 2002 and 2010 World Cups.These are not all of the greatest players to come from South Africa but their accomplishments continue to inspire the players that came after.last_img read more

Minnesota Bioethicists Critique Their University

first_imgEight bioethicists at the University of Minnesota are charging that their own institution has committed an “alarming series of ethical violations” in a clinical trial where a young man committed suicide in 2004. The eight, who include roughly half of the university’s bioethics core faculty members, yesterday released a letter to the university’s Board of Regents, asking the board to set up an external investigation into the death of Daniel Markingson. He committed suicide violently while enrolled in a trial of antipsychotic medications through the university’s psychiatry department. The letter alleges that his death wasn’t adequately investigated earlier. “Bioethicists should not ignore disaster in their own backyard,” says Mary Faith Marshall, one of the signers. Marshall came to the University of Minnesota in 2005 after serving in the federal bioethics policy arena. Among other things, she chaired a committee investigating the 1999 death of 19-year-old Jesse Gelsinger in a gene therapy experiment at the University of Pennsylvania. The bioethicists’ letter was spearheaded by Carl Elliott, a tenured faculty member in the department who studies conflicts of interest in the pharmaceutical industry. Elliott wrote a scathing article about the case in Mother Jones magazine this fall. As he documented there, Markingson was enrolled in a clinical trial while severely mentally ill and against his mother’s wishes; he also alleges that the university’s psychiatry department stood to gain financially by enrolling and retaining him in the trial. In an investigation after Markingson’s death, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the university of any misconduct and said there was no evidence that Markingson could not voluntarily consent to the study.

I just feel embarrassed to work at a university that would treat human subjects and their families this way,” he says. After Elliott began speaking out about the case in the fall, the university’s general counsel, Mark Rotenberg, released a statement arguing the university’s side of the story. Markingson’s death was reviewed to varying degrees by outside investigators, he noted. “None found fault with the involved faculty, and none found any causal link” between the study and Markingson’s suicide. But the eight bioethicists wrote in their letter to the university that the Mother Jones piece and a 2008 series in a local newspaper, the Pioneer Press, “raise troubling questions that to date have not been addressed in the University’s response to the death of Mr. Markingson.” Asked whether the university had a response to the letter, spokesperson Daniel Wolter wrote in an email: “There isn’t any additional statement at this point as there isn’t really anything new beyond Professor Elliott repackaging his position in new and different formats.” The university’s general counsel was not available to discuss the case before ScienceInsider’s deadline. After hearing Wolter’s comment, Marshall said: “I still say, when a research subject dies in one of your studies, the public and the private message should be, ‘We are really sorry about this and we are going to do whatever we can do to make sure this never happens again.’ “last_img read more
