Massive buyout clause in Neymar’s new deal

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain (AP): Barcelona forward Neymar signed a three-year contract extension yesterday, tying him to the Spanish champion until 2021. Barcelona announced Neymar’s agreement to the terms of a new deal in July. The new deal includes a buyout clause that increases from €200 million (US$217 million) in its first year, to €220 million in the second year and to €250 million in the third year.

Forming a dominant attacking trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Su·rez, he has helped Barcelona win the Champions League, two Spanish leagues, two Copa del Rey trophies, and the Club World Cup. “This is great news,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. “Neymar has grown into one of the best players in the world.”last_img read more

Pollard upstaged in Strikers win

first_imgADELAIDE, Australia (CMC):Chris Jordan outshone West Indies star Kieron Pollard as Adelaide Strikers won for only the second time in five outings with a five-wicket victory over Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League here yesterday.Sent in, Hobart managed 161 for eight off their 20 overs at Adelaide Oval, with number seven Beau Webster hammering an unbeaten 67 off 43 deliveries and Jonathan Wells getting 55 from 37 balls.The pair dug Hobart out of a hole at 30 for five in the sixth over, putting on an invaluable 89 for the sixth wicket.Jordan, the Barbados-born England all-rounder, bowled superbly to claim three for 24 from his four overs.In reply, Adelaide got home in the penultimate over with left-handed opener Ben Dunk top-scoring with an unbeaten 79 from 49 balls.He added 69 for the third wicket with Brad Hodge who made 30 and then partnered with Jordan in an unbroken 31-run, sixth wicket stand to see Adelaide to victory.Jordan struck 15 not out off 14 balls with a single six.However, Pollard’s struggles with the bat continued as he made just 15 off seven balls with three fours before falling lbw to seamer Daniel Christian in the 14th over.The 29-year-old has scored just 60 runs in five innings during the tournament.With the win, Strikers climbed into sixth spot in the eight-team standings on four points while Hobart remained fifth on four points.last_img read more

Residents call for greater usage of Sligoville Stadium

first_imgResidents of the Sligoville community are demanding greater usage of the Sligoville Stadium. “It’s only when events are taking place you see things happening. They don’t really service it as how they are supposed to and we are not comfortable with it. It’s a sport facility and we expect more from it. We want it used on a frequent basis, every weekend there should be a sport event here,” said Sashawna Powell. Kenrick Thomas says the community is calling out for some development and the complex is just being wasted. “We would like more things taking place that can benefit us in the community. Just once a year we can benefit (Emancifest in July 31 and August 1), so we need more things,” he commented. Talmar Warren the player/coach of the Sligoville St Catherine Division Two team says it is being used more regularly but a lot more can be done to make the complex a springboard for sports development in the community. “As it is we want people to be able to use this to find a way into the sporting arena, which ever field; football, cricket, basketball, whatever field they can go in and make a life for themselves, family and friends, that is what we want for Sligoville,” he said. Marked improvements When The Gleaner visited the multi-sports complex earlier this week, it showed marked improvements since our last visit some three years ago and the brown and cream painting on the complex suggest GC Foster had a major hand in its revitalisation. The complex consists of a 600-seat basketball and netball court, with lighting and fencing, a 1,200-seat cricket oval, a 1,500-seat football field with a six-lane, 400-metre track circling the football field. The chain-link fence enclosing the stadium, which was almost gone has been replaced. The crystallised plastic seats in the stands, the majority of which were completely destroyed, have been changed to concrete and painted over. The old torn up football nets have been changed, with the field being in good playing condition, however, the running track in not visible. The dilapidated seating at the basketball/netball court has also changed to board seats, but the courts are cracked and stained by black spots, one of the basketball hoops have been rooted out from apparent rot and wear at its foundation, with the surrounding fencing all gone except for the rotting fence posts. Five of the 11 casings for floodlights are broken and obviously needs repair based on some loose wires. – LSlast_img read more

I think I controlled the fight in the early rounds and I kept the activity up,” Garcia said. “(Broner) is a great fighter who has great skills.

It was better than some of his recent performances, but not good enough against a fighter of Garcia’s caliber.“At the end of the day I’m still a four-time world champion at four different weight classes and I’ll still be in the history books,” Broner said. View commentscenter_img LeBron James scores 31 points, Lakers beat Rockets He scored well to the body in the ninth and had a crowd that was chanting “Mikey! Mikey!” a couple rounds earlier cheering for him. But Garcia went back to work in the 10th with precision punching, pumping his fist as he returned to his corner after the round.There was no title at stake — they fought for a manufactured prize called the WBC Diamond Belt super lightweight championship — but it was clearly a big bout for both. Garcia was able to beat the biggest name yet he’s faced, which should help as he seeks the mainstream attention that’s so far eluded him.Broner needed to show there’s substance with his style. The former Floyd Mayweather protege had lost twice after moving up to welterweight, was twice stripped of titles for failing to make weight and served jail time among his repeated legal troubles.But he said he was focused for this fight after taking his training camp to Colorado and he made weight easily — no doubt enticed by the $500,000 fine he faced if he didn’t — actually weighing less that Garcia at under 139 pounds.But Garcia frustrated him with his movement and made it hard for Broner to follow up any time he did have any good moments.“It was ‘Tom and Jerry,’” Broner said. “I had to catch the mouse.” Mikey Garcia, center, smiles and poses for photos after defeating Adrien Broner during a boxing bout Saturday, July 29, 2017, in New York. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)NEW YORK — Mikey Garcia unanimously outpointed Adrien Broner on Saturday night to remain undefeated.Garcia controlled his first fight at 140 pounds, particularly with body shots he was able to sneak in below Broner’s defense, and won 117-111 on one card and 116-112 on the other two.ADVERTISEMENT Broner, who turned 28 on Friday, had won titles in three divisions by 23 and later added a fourth. But losses and lethargic performances even in his wins, along with legal problems outside the ring, stalled his career that once rose so rapidly.Garcia, meanwhile, remains on a roll and continued his dominant run over the last year since returning from a 2 1/2-year layoff while he battled contractual issues. He can now weigh options that could be presented to him in multiple weight classes. He said he’d like to go back to 135 pounds in search of regaining a title, but was open to staying at 140 or even moving up to 147 if the right opportunity was available.He consistently backed Broner into the ropes and landed hard body shots. Broner repeatedly shook his head that none of them hurt and he fought back well, but they were enough to win the majority of the rounds.Garcia, 29, had stopped 19 of his last 21 opponents. He had to settle for just beating Broner, but perhaps his knockout power will return if he drops back down in weight.Garcia cracked Broner with shots all over in the seventh, his most dominant round of the fight, but Broner actually began to perform better from there.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next ‘I’m out!’: PewDiePie releases last video before taking break from YouTube 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

And Donovan sarcastically said at the time that he “probably didn’t ask Russell to stay down on the court long enough to get it reviewed.”Cousins, meanwhile, said he was aware of how his ejection following contact with Westbrook fit into the Thunder’s own recent history with disputed flagrant fouls.“It shows that Russ is coachable,” Cousins said. “He listens and they got what they’ve been working on.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next SPORTSBack on the throneCousins, who has a history of on-court emotional outbursts that draw a relatively high number of technical fouls, said he knew officials would not give him the benefit of the doubt when they reviewed the play on a video monitor before ejecting him.“I’m DeMarcus.

I knew,” said Cousins, who was assessed a league-high 18 technical fouls last season.Cousins added that he’s not sure what he can do differently going forward other than “send the refs a Christmas card — I don’t know — the league, too. Send Christmas cards, stuff like that.”The play occurred under the Pelicans’ basket in the third quarter after Cousins had secured a rebound.

Only contact deemed “unnecessary and excessive,” according to the NBA rule book, which also employs the term “unsportsmanlike” in the section pertaining to flagrant fouls.In some ways, the play appeared to be an extension of recent Thunder protests about officiating that drew $15,000 fines.Westbrook, Paul George and coach Billy Donovan all were fined for comments about a flagrant foul called against Carmelo Anthony, whose elbow made contact with Jusuf Nurkic’s head while Anthony was shooting the ball.
