EU recovery summit could end with no deal, says Merkel

first_imgGermany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that EU leaders may fail to reach an agreement on Sunday on a huge post-virus recovery plan for the shattered European economy.Arriving for the third and what she said was probably the “decisive” day of an extraordinary European summit, Merkel said the 27 leaders had “many positions” on the size of the fund, on rules for accessing it and on tying it to respect for the rule of law.”I still can’t say whether a solution will be found,” she said. “There is a lot of good will… but it may also be that no result will be achieved today.” Merkel was due to join French President Emmanuel Macron and the president of the European Council, summit host Charles Michel, to prepare a new offer to break the logjam after Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and his “Frugal Five” allies blocked a deal.Michel had proposed a 750-billion-euro package of EU loans and grants to help member states recover from an historic coronavirus recession, but Austria sees the package as too big and the Netherlands wants member states to be able to veto national spending plans.The rest of the 27 EU leaders were due to meet again in the full summit format from noon (1000 GMT) and talks could yet go late into the night. Topics :last_img read more

Pro Athletes Demise

first_imgHere are some sobering figures that Glen Butte shared with me for this article. We revere the young sport star when he is in his prime and yell for his retirement when we think he is not producing the results we want. Unfortunately, here are some of those sobering facts after they retire or are forced to leave the sport that made millions for them when they were playing well.Seventy-eight percent of NFL players go bankrupt or are in financial stress within two years of retirement. The same type of fate hits NBA stars but at a lesser rate of sixty percent. Divorce rates for retired athletes go as high as sixty percent, also. According to a North Carolina University study eleven percent of those retired players suffer depression.According to a SI report, many of these athletes find it very difficult to change these fates. I think the pro sport franchises need to do a lot more in educating these young men when they are first employed on what to do with the money and point out to them how fast a pro career can vanish.last_img read more

Bruce: We’re halfway there

first_img Talks took place over a deal, but it failed to materialise and Bruce has indicated he may well try again to sign the Republic of Ireland international. But with Albion having recently sacked head coach Steve Clarke and Long therefore set to be soon working under a new boss, Bruce is keeping an open mind on the subject. He said: “A new head coach will come in and who knows? “If he became available, then I would love to try to do something. “But we thought we had a deal on deadline day and it didn’t quite happen. “We’ll see what the situation is, but we’ll respect the fact that he is a West Brom player.” Hull took a deserved lead in the 28th minute of Saturday’s contest when Jake Livermore, who is on loan from Tottenham, finished off a counter-attack. During his celebration, the midfielder kicked a camera set up behind the goal and he was subsequently contacted via Twitter by the owner of the equipment, photographer Richard Heathcote. Heathcote’s message included a picture of the broken “£6k” camera and said: “where do you want me to send the repair bill?” Livermore responded with a message saying “apologies mate will sort camera no problem”, adding that he would donate the same amount it cost to the charity fundraising efforts of his Hull team-mate Tom Huddlestone. The late leveller for West Brom – playing for the first time since Clarke’s dismissal and overseen by caretaker head coach Keith Downing – came from the boot of substitute Matej Vydra. It was Vydra’s maiden Albion goal and Downing later paid tribute to the Czech Republic striker, who joined on loan from Udinese over the summer, saying: “He’s waited a long time. “He’s been persevering in training. “He’s had a few niggles here and there and it’s a big step for him, a massive boost. “I’m pleased for him because he’s a good lad and works hard during the week. “He took his opportunity to score very well. “Once he gets in those one-v-one situations he is a very good finisher.” The point was Albion’s first in five games and they remain 16th in the table, three points above the relegation zone. Bruce is certainly not about to take anything for granted, though. After the game at The Hawthorns, in which the hosts equalised in the 86th minute, he said: “It would have been lovely to have 22 points. “But getting 20 points by Christmas – if someone had said that to us at the start, then we would have been delighted. “We are halfway there, but we have to repeat the whole thing in the second half of the season.” He added: “It is always difficult for a newly-promoted club, but we are making a fist of it and you can see from the way they (his players) play that they are a delight to work with. “They roll their sleeves up, have a go and they are enjoying playing in the Premier League. “Hopefully we can bring one or two in to give a bit of quality in January. But overall I am delighted.” One player Hull may look to recruit in the forthcoming winter transfer window is West Brom striker Shane Long, who had appeared set to make the switch on the final day of the last window. The Tigers, who were promoted to the Barclays Premier League in May and widely tipped ahead of this season to be relegated straight back to the Sky Bet Championship, made it to the milestone points tally on Saturday when they drew 1-1 at West Brom, their 17th fixture of the campaign. At this stage they look on course for survival, given 40 points is generally viewed as the total that will guarantee safety and Hull – currently 12th in the table – still have 21 games to play. Hull boss Steve Bruce has expressed his satisfaction at his side reaching 20 points this term – but stressed that their job is only half done. Press Associationlast_img read more

Wenger: Ozil class will tell

first_img “Is he over it now? Certainly not, because 48 hours is a short time to get over that, but it is part of the job as well to deal with disappointment and to show that you can respond to it,” Wenger said. “He apologised after the game, but I don’t think people are shocked Ozil is not Arsenal’s designated penalty taker, sitting behind Mikel Arteta and Olivier Giroud, who were both not playing on Wednesday night.” Asked whether he would let Ozil take a penalty again, Wenger said: “I believe that at the moment you have to let him recover from that. “I had examples before, with people like Dennis Bergkamp who missed an important penalty in 1999 and refused after to take any penalty (for a while)… some other people don’t mind and (take penalties) again. “It depends on how you feel and how much you want it.” Arsenal will be without full-back Kieran Gibbs because of a hamstring injury, and Wenger is likely to rotate his squad. Giroud had been left on the bench against Bayern in favour of rookie forward Yaya Sanogo. The France international was in the headlines for some personal issues in the past couple of weeks, but Wenger insists the 27-year-old is in the right frame of mind. “Some of us are different, but he is one of them who will focus completely on the pitch,” Wenger said. Sunderland are set to play Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final next weekend, with former Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone helping them win a dramatic penalty shoot-out at Manchester United. Wenger, though, is not expecting Gus Poyet’s men to let their focus slip from the job in hand. “It can happen, but let’s not forget they play for survival as well,” he said. “The players who will want to play in the final will want to show that they can play well. It can go both ways. “It is always a bit on your mind certainly, but I don’t think that will be a reason to expect any weakness from Sunderland – it can galvanise them and give them some special resources.” Ozil made a promising start following his £42.5million signing from Real Madrid at the end of the summer transfer window, but has struggled to make an impact in the last few months. That frustrating inconsistency was epitomised by a costly penalty miss in the Champions League last-16 first leg tie against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. The German playmaker has apologised via Facebook for the tame spot-kick, which was saved by Manuel Neuer after eight minutes of a game the Gunners would go on to lose 2-0 and all but end their European dreams for another season. Arsenal will unveil a bronze statue of former striker Bergkamp ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League fixture against Sunderland. Much like Ozil, the ex-Holland international needed time to grow into his new surroundings following a then club-record £7.5million move from Inter Milan in June 1995, failing to score in his first seven games. Wenger is in no doubt Ozil possesses the same elements to develop into an Arsenal great. “Ozil is a classy player and on a longer period class tells, always,” said Wenger. “I would like to say how pleased I am that Dennis Bergkamp gets his statue, for his class, his contribution to the success of the club, and as well, a forgotten quality in the modern game, for his loyalty. “That is why I am so happy that he gets one, and I wish that one day Ozil will get one outside the stadium as well and I will still be well enough to come and watch it.” Wenger maintains Ozil should not dwell on his penalty miss against Munich and also not be afraid to try another one when he is ready. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in no doubt Mesut Ozil’s class will eventually tell – and one day perhaps even see him immortalised with a statue outside the Emirates Stadium like Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.

Monk pens new Swansea deal

first_img Monk, who had two years left on his original deal, guided Swansea to a best Premier League finish of eighth in his first full season in charge last term with a record points total. The 36-year-old – the youngest manager in the Premier League – joined Swansea as a player in 2004 and went on to make 270 appearances, becoming captain and playing his part in the club’s rise through the divisions and Capital One Cup success in 2013. Monk succeeded Michael Laudrup as Swansea manager in February 2014 and Jenkins said the new contract, which Press Association Sport understands includes a significantly increased release clause, is fully deserved. “It’s deserved reward for the fantastic season we’ve just had and all Garry’s hard work, commitment and loyalty to our football club over many years,” Jenkins said. “We also feel it is vital to have stability within our football club, especially with Garry going into such a big season where the reward for remaining within the Barclays Premier League is going to be greater than ever in terms of finance and global exposure.” Monk, who was linked with West Ham and Sunderland last season, said he was delighted to sign the new deal and plans to build on last term’s success. “We’ve been talking for a while, mostly over the finer details, so I’m glad it’s all finalised heading into a new and very important season for the club,” Monk told swanseacity.net “It hasn’t been a distraction because I will always remain focussed, but it was a situation both myself and the club felt was important to get clarified before the season started. Swansea manager Garry Monk has signed a new three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium. Press Association The Barclays Premier League club announced the news on their official website after the 36-year-old had been in talks with Swansea since the end of last season. “As a club we are pleased to agree the new contract with Garry,” Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said. “This is my 12th year at Swansea and I’ve always given everything for the club. “Last season was fantastic and I learned a lot to take forward. But even with the success we all had, from the staff to the players, you can never afford to stand still. “It’s been a happy and productive 18 months so far for me as manager. “I believe we have put good foundations in place, but now it’s vital we build on that and push forward. “It is probably going to be the most important and difficult season many clubs will face in the Premier League ahead of the new broadcasting deal.” last_img read more
