UEFA ‘don’t care’ about racism, says England Under-17 World Cup star

first_img“I don’t think UEFA take this thing seriously. They don’t really care. That is how it feels anyway, like it has been brushed under the carpet,” the teenager told The Guardian.Brewster said UEFA have yet to hold an inquiry into an incident involving Russian side Spartak Moscow three weeks ago where he claims he was the target of a racist remark by opposing captain Leonid Mironov.Mironov denies he made a racial slur during the UEFA Youth League match.Brewster, who says he also suffered abuse in a European Championship Under-17 match against Ukraine and when playing Spanish outfit Sevilla in an Under-19 clash, admits the slurs have an effect.“On the day it happens, that night my head won’t be there. I just want to be left alone,” he said.“I want to be by myself and left to think. The next day I’ll still be thinking about it.Under UEFA’s rules any player found guilty of making racial slurs can be suspended for a minimum of 10 matches.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000FIFA President Gianni Infantino vowed to crack down hard on racist incidents when Russia hosts the World Cup next yearLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 28 – Rhian Brewster, the leading scorer in England’s Under-17 World Cup victory earlier this year, claimed Thursday that UEFA “don’t really care” about racism.The 17-year-old, who is yet to feature for Liverpool’s first team, says he has witnessed racial abuse — either aimed at him or a teammate — seven times this year.last_img read more

Job listing excludes education

first_img Councilman Ron Beilke denied the job description is tailored to ensure Fuentes has a good chance at the city manager’s job. “The position has never required a college degree, going back to Courtemarche’s time,” he said. “We did not dummy down the position. We inherited this.” So far, 13 people have applied for the city manager job. The candidates will be narrowed to three after the Nov. 17 application deadline, said Beilke. Fuentes is not among the applicants, but he would be considered if he applies, added Beilke. “I feel he is highly qualified and I would consider him,” he said. — Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Councilman Gregory Salcido echoed that belief. “It looks like a certain consultant has written his own job description,” said Salcido, who opposed Fuentes’ hiring. “The fact that the education requirement has been left out of the flier causes me concern.” Fuentes was hired soon after the council fired longtime City Manager Dennis Courtemarche in May. PICO RIVERA — Wanted: One city manager. Experience: Should have a strong background in government finance and municipal administrative law. Salary: $150,000 a year. Education: No college degree is required. City officials have released job requirements for the vacant city manager’s position, but a paragraph labeled “ideal candidate” makes no mention of a college degree as a prerequisite. The listing does include a sentence saying a master’s degree is “a plus.” That omission instantly prompted critics of the City Council to charge that it was designed to clear the way for the city to hire consultant Chuck Fuentes to the post. Fuentes, who was out of his office and did not return calls, does not list any college degrees on his resume. His experience includes a job as chief of staff for Rep. Grace Napolitano,D-Santa Fe Springs, and serving as chief administrative officer for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.last_img read more

Revealed! Here’s how Virender Sehwag terrified the world’s best bowlers

first_imgDifferent players have different methods of keeping themselves focused while performing their duties on the field. And some of these ‘methods’ are quite unique.Take Virender Sehwag for example. The former India opener revealed that he would sing songs of legendary artists like Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar to keep himself focused on his game while batting. (World T20: India will be unstoppable if Rohit Shamra and Virat Kohli fire, says Virender Sehwag) “To keep negative thoughts away, I used to sing a lot of songs while batting. Singing used to keep me from getting distracted. I used to sing the golden songs of Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar,” the 37-year-old, who retired in October 2015, said on Tuesday.”The aim of singing these songs was to keep negative thoughts away which could have distracted me to lose my wicket. What song, whose song and other things did not matter as long as they fulfilled the purpose,” added the Delhi batting great.Asked if any of his former colleagues also joined in singing a duet while batting, Sehwag laughed and said, “My partners did not even know I was singing because when we used to meet in the middle, we would talk about the game.”When I used to be at my end of the pitch, then I would sing. I would also talk to umpires at the non-strikers end for the same purpose.”last_img read more
