He has publicly criticised the Catalan independence referendum, and openly indicated his support for Vox’s leader Santiago Abascal, as per reports from COPE prior to the 2019 General Election.

Alderweireld focus on European push

first_img Press Association Eyebrows were raised last summer when the 26-year-old moved to St Mary’s on a season-long loan, just months after playing for Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final. Alderweireld’s form on the south coast has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham, but Ronald Koeman’s side have the option to make the deal permanent for just £6.8million. “It is has been a very nice season,” Alderweireld said. “We like to play football, we have a good team and we have good results. “We are playing for the European spots so I am happy.” The win over Hull was unconvincing but gave Southampton’s faint top-four hopes a boost. Bettering the fifth place of 1985 looks a big ask but not impossible after James Ward-Prowse’s penalty and a late Graziano Pelle strike. “We just have to look to ourselves and not to look to other teams,” Alderweireld said. “We know we have six games left, so it is going to be a hard sprint. “The games are all tough, like next week Stoke away. It is a very difficult game, but we are going to try and win our games. “We know we have Tottenham at home so we can do good business, but first we have to go to Stoke and that is going to be difficult.” The result leaves Hull further in the mire given they face an unenviable run of fixtures from now until the end of the season. City have a two-week break before their next match at Crystal Palace, where Michael Dawson knows they need to put Saturday’s disappointment behind them. “It is a massive disappointment,” the Hull skipper said. “The first half, I thought we got right at them and I think (goalkeeper Steve Harper) Harps probably made one save. “We were hoping to do the same in the second, but goals change games, big decisions in games. “The yellow card incident where Alex (Bruce) is covered in claret, where (Graziano Pelle) has caught him flush straight in the face, t hat for me is a red card, but obviously with the penalty the ref got that right. Two big decisions. “There was a lot more chances created by us than them, but at the end of the day we go away with no points which is a massive disappointment for us. “The teams in and around us are winning, so it’s about ourselves. We need to starting picking up some points.” Toby Alderweireld is ignoring the background noise about his future, such is the on-loan defender’s determination to complete Southampton’s “special season” by securing European qualification. The Belgium international has expressed a desire to stay at Saints, but the waters are muddied by Atletico’s ability to nullify the buy-out clause by paying them £1.5million. Jose Luis Perez Caminero recently indicated the Primera Division club would invoke that clause, saying Diego Simeone’s men were counting on him for next term, but Alderweireld is unclear whether he will be at St Mary’s, the Vicente Calderon or elsewhere. “I saw something in the Spanish papers,” Alderweireld told Press Association Sport. “I don’t know, I didn’t hear from them. We will see. “It is not (frustrating) because it does not matter what they say, what is in the papers. “I am just focused on Southampton and we are playing for a European spot, so it is going to be a special season. “I am focused, I am happy here, so, yeah, no problem for me.” Alderweireld has been one of Southampton’s best players in a remarkable season. Many predicted a relegation battle for Koeman’s men, yet Saturday’s 2-0 win against Hull saw them equal the record Premier League points tally of 56 set last year. last_img read more

Women of Troy top conference poll

first_imgFresh off of their second national title in four years, the USC women’s water polo team topped the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s preseason poll. Four times since Jovan Vavic became the head coach of the men’s and women’s water polo teams at USC, he’s been able to coach both teams to a national championship in the same school year (1998-99, 2003-04, 2009-2010 and 2012-13).Fearless leader · Coach Jovan Vavic has the opportunity to win national titles in men’s and women’s water polo for the fifth time. – Corey Marquetti | Daily Trojan The poll predicts that Vavic is likely to accomplish the feat for a fifth time. After winning the national title with the men’s team this past December, the MPSF preseason poll narrowly predicted USC women’s team to finish first in the conference that has won every national championship since water polo became sanctioned as a varsity sport by the NCAA in 2001.Much like last year’s national championship game, the team finished just a hair ahead of second-place Stanford. The Women of Troy beat Stanford 10-9 in overtime in last year’s national title bout and received four out of seven first place votes in the poll, with Stanford receiving the other three.UCLA finished third in the poll, indicating that little has changed in the national landscape of women’s water polo in the last two decades. USC, UCLA and Stanford have combined to win all 13 of the national titles in the sport’s history, and the runner-up has also come from the trio 11 of those times.Two years ago, it was Stanford that squeaked past USC in the 2012 title bout with a 6-4 win. But USC had the upper hand against the Cardinal in the 2010 final, which the Women of Troy also won 10-9.Junior driver and last year’s MPSF player of the year Monica Vavic, daughter of the head coach, returns from last year’s team along with senior All-Americans Flora Bolonyai, Kaleigh Gilchrist, Madeline Rosenthal and Kelly Mendoza.The Women of Troy open competition at the Triton Invitational in San Diego on Feb. 8.

COVID-19 disruptions see Flutter revise 2020 guidance

first_img Tabcorp expects $1bn hit as ‘COVID and retail contractions’ take effect August 3, 2020 Submit Share Related Articles Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 StumbleUpon FTSE100-listed Flutter Entertainment has become the first UK betting firm to revise its full-year 2020 corporate guidance.Issuing a market filing, Flutter anticipates that COVID-19 disruptions across core betting territories may result in a £90-110m decline in its group-wide full-year EBITDA results.Flutter governance has predicted that the COVID-19 outbreak will affect operations, as 78% of its group revenues are currently generated through bets placed on global sporting events.The estimated figures are based on the current assumption that the group’s UK and Irish shops will remain open, and that scheduled UK, Irish and Australian horse racing fixtures continue to run, albeit behind closed doors.A cancellation of horse racing events across the three regions, however, is expected to ‘incrementally reduce Group EBITDA by approximately £30m per month’.Commenting on the figures, Peter Jackson, Chief Executive, said: “The challenge currently facing our business and the industry more widely is unprecedented in modern times. Our focus, first and foremost, is on protecting the welfare of our employees and our customers and we will leave nothing to chance in this regard.“While our near-term profitability will be impacted by the essential measures being taken globally, the Board will remain focused on protecting shareholder value and managing the business through these turbulent times.”In its statement, Flutter confirmed that prior to the announcement of cancellations, trading in the quarter had been running ahead of expectations, which has largely been driven ‘by good customer momentum and favourable sporting results’.

Gardner also set career highs for homers (26) and RBIs (69), and New York extended its team record with 292 long balls.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter last_img read more
