Three-times European champions Manchester United, arguably the biggest name in the draw, qualified as group winners while Club Brugge dropped in from the UEFA Champions League. This was after the Belgian side finished behind Paris St-Germain and Real Madrid. Ajax Amsterdam’s consolation for exiting the UEFA Champions League at the group phase is a two-legged tie with Spanish side Getafe, while Inter Milan face Bulgarians Ludogorets. “We’ve not had a lot of luck in the draw,” Getafe’s sporting director Angel Martin Gonzales said. “They’re a big side, but that helps us grow too.” Two other clubs who failed to progress to the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds face off, with Benfica up against Shakhtar Donetsk. AS Roma play Gent while former European champions FC Porto face Bayer Leverkusen, one of three German clubs in the draw. Sevilla, the most successful club in Europa League history with five titles, play Romanian outfit CFR Cluj.

Baines: We will recover

first_img Press Association Everton defender Leighton Baines insists the upheaval of losing manager David Moyes to Manchester United after 11 years in charge will not derail the club. He added: “It was a sad day after the last game at Goodison particularly because you’ve been working with him for so long, he’s always around, he’s such a hard worker and he doesn’t miss a beat. “We’ll always remember what he did for the club and where he’s put us, but it’s up to the rest of us, the people who remain and the people who come in, to take it forward now and build on the foundations he’s worked hard to put in.” Everton are still searching to find the right replacement for Moyes, with reports of Porto coach Vitor Pereira having already agreed a deal wide of the mark. The club are happy to take their time and there is unlikely to be any movement on that front until next week at the earliest and possibly even later, but while Moyes’ departure may have hit the squad hard, assistant Steve Round believes he has left the club in the best possible shape. They finished sixth in the Premier League, ahead of near-neighbours Liverpool for the second successive campaign – the first time that had been achieved in the top flight since 1937. Their performances against the sides above them pointed to an improvement with victories against the new and old champions respectively Manchester United and Manchester City, Tottenham and two draws against Arsenal. “I think the team’s confidence and ability to play at that level has shown through in those results,” Round told evertontv. “It’s a very good record and it does show the direction that the club is going in, that the team is going in.” center_img Moyes officially takes charge as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Old Trafford on July 1 but he is currently dividing his time between the two clubs as part of a settling in period. Baines, Moyes’ most consistent player since joining from Wigan in 2007, admits it will be odd not having the Scot at the helm any more, but he is confident the Toffees will move on without a problem. “It’s a massive loss to lose the manager,” the England international, who has already been linked with a reunion with Moyes at United, told “It will be so strange the day we walk through the door and he’s not there. But football clubs live on and we’ll live on, we’ll move on.” last_img read more

Guyanese, Jamaicans and Africans worst treated at TT detention center

first_imgImmigrants from Guyana, Jamaica and Africa are being unfairly singled out for bad treatment at the Aripo Immigration Center in Trinidad and Tobago according to the advocacy body, The Emancipation Support Group.Khafra Kambon, chairman of the Emancipation Support Group, is upset that despite repeated efforts to meet with TT’s National Security Minister Edmund Dillon, the minister has not dignified their efforts with a response.“We have sought meetings with Minister Dillon, we have written, we have called we have not been able to get a meeting with Minister Dillon so far. So that creates an additional problem,” Khambon told the Trinidad Express.Indefinite detention is tortureKhambon said there are persons who have been detained for more than four years. Some have lost their mental faculties due to the ordeal while others have attempted suicide.“It’s very heartbreaking because you cannot treat human beings like that. Indefinite detention is considered a form of torture on other jurisdictions,” said Khambon.“A lot of abuse is taking place in this system. The stories are unbelievable as to what some of these people are subjected to. There are people who have tripped off under those conditions. It’s a real torture when you have no pathway to get out and day after day you are hoping for something to happen. It affects your mind. There are people who have suffered mentally in there,” he said.Squalid conditionsHe said even officers and employees at the center have complained about the squalid conditions.Khambon indicated lawyers have initiated legal action to help a couple detainees but the process is long and costly. The inmates need more lawyers to come on board and assist to get these people help.DiscriminationSome detainees face acts discrimination from the center’s employees.“For all the years we have been involved in this, we have said there’s a clear pattern of discrimination against detainees from the continent of Africa,” Khambon said.He said people from Guyana and Jamaica are next on the list in terms of discriminatory treatment from immigration authorities.last_img read more
