Exclusive – Ronaldo is fed up at Real and Man United return may be on the cards, claims Calderon

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has become disillusioned with life at Real Madrid and could be keen on a sensational return to Manchester United.That is the view of Ramon Calderon, the former president of the Spanish club and the man responsible for taking the Portuguese winger to the Bernabeu.According to Calderon, Ronaldo’s relationship with Florentino Pérez is at rock bottom after the summer departures of Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria.“My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president,” claimed Calderon, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“When he came [to Real Madrid] with [Arjen] Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team [but then he was sold].“Two years ago it was [Gonzalo] Higuain sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria this summer.”United are reportedly preparing a mega-money offer to lure Ronaldo back to Old Trafford and Calderon says it would be no surprise to see the 29-year-old return to the Premier League giants.He added: “When I signed him in 2008, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United.“He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.”last_img read more

Lopetegui dismisses future as Madrid hit 33-year drought

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid are now winless in four matches, failing to even manage a goal © AFP / ANDER GILLENEAVITORIA, Spain, Oct 6 – Julen Lopetegui insisted it is too early to be questioning his future despite Real Madrid suffering a shock defeat by Alaves on Saturday to make it four games without a victory.It is four games without a goal too for the European champions, their longest scoring drought since 1985, as Manu Garcia headed home in the 95th minute to send the Mendizorrotza Stadium wild. It is the first time they have beaten Madrid at home in 87 years.Alaves fans ran onto the pitch to celebrate their stunning 1-0 win and the chants continued long after the final whistle.For Real, this was another body blow and to make matters worse, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, their chief attacking threats, were both forced off injured. Bale had missed the Champions League loss to CSKA Moscow on Tuesday with a groin strain.It means Barcelona can go three points clear if they win their game in hand against Valencia on Sunday while Alaves’ excellent start to the season continues. They move up to third, level on points with Real.Lopetegui had been asked on Friday if he felt under pressure at the club he left Spain for on the eve of the World Cup and the question was put to him again after the match here.“It interests you but is not a question that concerns me,” Lopetegui said.“We know what the life of a coach is, especially at Real Madrid, but we also know it is October and you have to keep perspective and stay calm.”Captain Sergio Ramos was more emphatic. “It’s other people who make those decisions but it’s never good to have a change of coach,” he said. “It would be crazy.”Talk of change feels premature but it will increase if Madrid fail to find fluency soon and, in particular, if Barca pull away. The Clasico at the Camp Nou looms at the end of the month.“We are disappointed,” Lopetegui added. “In the end, defeat is a harsh punishment.”– Courtois at fault –Thibaut Courtois took over from Keylor Navas in goal and was at fault for Alaves’ winner. The Belgian edged out but failed to claim a cross, leaving Garcia to head into any empty net.Supporters behind that goal had unfurled three banners during the match that read: ‘A club is not made great by its titles but by its people’.Some of the 19,000 fans here might have seen their team beat Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2000, but not at home. It was 1931 when that last happened.There was a UEFA Cup final too in 2001, which they lost to Gerard Houllier’s Liverpool, but recent years have been tough, with three seasons spent in the third tier. Alaves climbed their way back up and reached the final of the Copa del Rey in 2017. But for drama, this will be hard to beat.“I feel very proud,” Garcia said. “It is the most beautiful day of my sporting life.”Bale had been passed fit to start while Luka Modric and Ramos returned after being rested against CSKA.Ramos clattered Jonathan Calleri early on and then elbowed the Alaves striker in the face. The referee deemed it accidental but Calleri responded with a clip on the defender’s leg.Bale span in behind and backheeled to Benzema, who teed up Dani Ceballos to shoot. Benzema had a header volleyed off the line by Victor Laguardia.But Alaves grew into the half and it took Raphael Varane’s diving header to prevent Ibai Gomez from tapping in at the back post.Benzema was replaced at half-time by Mariano Diaz, who instantly looked more dangerous.The rain came down and the whistles grew louder as Madrid dominated the ball but their opponents could have won it sooner when Jony sprinted clear, only to drag his finish wide.Bale trudged off and another Alaves chance arrived in injury time. Courtois came for the cross but failed to gather and Ruben Sobrino sent the ball to the back post. Garcia was perfectly placed.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Congressional dawdling could delay tax refunds

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsThe board, an independent advisory group, said in a report to lawmakers last week that it is “gravely concerned about the serious risks” to the filing season if Congress does not make timely changes to the tax. They include more mistakes by both taxpayers and the IRS and more people failing to pay taxes because of uncertainty about what they owe. The alternative minimum tax was passed in 1969 and was aimed at about 155 very wealthy families who used deductions to avoid paying any federal income tax. The AMT disallows certain deductions and credits. It was not adjusted for inflation; as a result, over the years it has hit a growing number of middle-income taxpayers. More than 4 million were subject to it in the 2006 tax year, and that could soar to 25 million this year without congressional action. Congress in recent years has approved one-year fixes to stop the tax from expanding. Legislation this year has stalled in a dispute between majority Democrats and the White House. The stumbling block is whether some taxes should rise to offset the cost of correcting the AMT. Richard Spires, the deputy IRS commissioner for operations support, said in an interview that the agency is considering not processing all early returns if the AMT issue is not resolved soon. WASHINGTON – Silena Davis had counted on an early tax refund to pay for getting her teeth fixed. Now, because Congress has dawdled all year on a tax bill, she and millions of other early filers could have to wait extra weeks for refunds that last year averaged $2,291. The Internal Revenue Service is looking hard at delaying the start of its filing season, set to kick off on Jan. 14, if Congress fails to pass legislation in the next two weeks. At issue is how to handle what could be a dramatic increase in the number of people facing a higher alternative minimum tax. If there is a delay and it extends into mid-February, it would slow nearly 32 million refunds worth a total of about $87 billion, the IRS Oversight Board predicts. “It would definitely make a big difference with me,” said Davis, a George Washington University Law School administrator. “I’m going to have to get a crown and it’s going to be really expensive.” “We are worried that if we allow certain filers to file that it does not cause a lot of confusion and delay the whole filing system for everyone,” he said. While most people are not hit by the tax, the IRS lacks a way to distinguish what returns are affected by possible changes in tax law. The AMT, he said, involves “some of the most complex code that we deal with, right at the heart of our tax compilations.” People who file returns under the current AMT law would have to file an amended return if the law were changed. Spires also stressed that there would not be any advantage to filing by paper if the IRS is not accepting electronic returns. “We’re not going to process paper returns any faster,” he said. The dispute would give the millions of people who wait until the last minute to file their returns yet one more reason to procrastinate. “If it was only two or three weeks, it wouldn’t bother me at all,” said Toni Mistretta, a health-care worker from Jamesport, N.Y. Some disruption already is taking place. As Congress was leaving for its Thanksgiving break with no deal in sight, the IRS was going to press with the forms for the 2007 tax year. Spires said the agency has postponed printing the AMT form and 11 others affecting smaller tax issues that Congress has promised to deal with but has not. The IRS has done the design work on the new forms after receiving assurances from Democratic and Republican leaders that Congress will enact an AMT fix this year similar to legislation passed last year. Congress returns this week. But it will take about seven weeks after a bill is passed and signed into law to do the necessary programming and testing before those forms could be presented to the public, Spires said. H&R Block said 60 percent of its clients who claim credits using forms affected by pending legislation normally file by the end of February. A delayed refund could cause hardship for those people in paying holiday bills or addressing other immediate financial problems, according to the company. Aides on the tax-writing committees said they were unaware, at this point, of any suggestions to extend the April 15 filing deadline if the filing season is contracted because of the AMT dilemma. The IRS oversight board, using past agency data, said that if the start of the filing season is pushed back two weeks to Jan. 28, it would delay some 5.6 million refunds totaling $17 billion. A Feb. 18 starting date would delay 32 million refunds totaling $87 billion. The report came after weeks of warnings – from President George W. Bush, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and the IRS – about the consequences of failing to enact a temporary fix. Paulson said the 25 million returns that could be affected in 2007 would pay on average an additional $2,000 in federal income tax.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Norwich City 0-1 Manchester United: Red Devils keep top four hopes alive

first_img Juan Mata celebrates scoring for Manchester United 1 Manchester United’s hopes of finishing in the top four were given another boost as they beat Norwich City 1-0 at Carrow Road.Juan Mata was the hero as he struck with 72 minutes on the clock and has put the Red Devils just one point behind fourth-placed rivals Man City, who play Arsenal on Sunday.Meanwhile, the Canaries will be bemoaning a toothless performance against a Man United side who were lacking in quality, which leaves them just two more games to get themselves out of the relegation zone.Hit by an injury to Anthony Martial in the warm up, Louis van Gaal was forced to start Ander Herrera instead and his charges, still adjusting, had to scramble clear twice in a row just minutes into the match.Nathan Redmond and then Cameron Jerome were both unable to score, with the latter’s header particularly poor, highlighting the Canaries’ woeful fortunes in front of goal this season.Man United nearly got themselves ahead in the eighth minute but Juan Mata was unable to control Wayne Rooney’s pass properly and collided with an opponent.A new injury worry developed for the Red Devils moments later as Matteo Darmian fouled Ivo Pinto but was caught on his left leg, leaving him writhing on the turf.Eventually Cameron Borthwick-Jackson took to the field to replace the Italy international, who will now be worried about his chances of making Antonio Conte’s Euro 2016 squad.With plenty on the line for both sides, there was tension in the East Anglian air, and this affected the quality of match with the two outfits looking disjointed on the ball and prone to fouls when off it.Memphis Depay, given a rare chance to start, failed to liven things up and curled a decently positioned free-kick straight into the wall, much to his own annoyance.The second half barely saw things improve as both sides looked to be winding down the campaign rather than battling for safety and a place in the top four.But just when it looked like the two sides were settling in, Wayne Rooney made the most of a Sebastien Bassong mistake and smartly set up Mata, who fired past John Ruddy with ease.The Norwich supporters looked disconsolate as their team failed to rally against the Red Devils, who suddenly looked relaxed and able to pass the ball around with ease.It nearly got worse in added time as Depay’s whipped free-kick had Ruddy scrambling but, thankfully for the goalkeeper, it went a whisker wide of his post.The Canaries now sit two points adrift of safety with two games to play against Watford and Everton, while Manchester United must play West Ham and Bournemouth.last_img read more
