O’Leary wins legal battle

first_imgDavid O’Leary has won a £3.4million compensation claim against Dubai-based club Al Ahli. “Club officials had openly stated to the media at the relevant time that there had been a dismissal,” said an LMA statement. The club also argued that FIFA lacked jurisdiction to hear the claim. FIFA rejected both lines of defence and awarded O’Leary, who was backed by the LMA and represented by Paul Gilroy QC and solicitor Michael Kennedy, the full sum due under his contract. O’Leary said: “It has taken a long time to deal with this matter but I am pleased that all issues have now been finalised. I hope my case provides reassurance to all managers and coaches working all over the world that there is a formal system in place that provides employment protection.” Richard Bevan, chief executive of the LMA, thanked the Football Association for their help in taking the case to FIFA. Bevan said: “We are clearly delighted with the outcome. In addition, the LMA is extremely grateful to the FA for their assistance in initiating the process with FIFA. “The added significance and wider impact of this process is the proof that FIFA has mechanisms in place which regulate worldwide employment issues.” The former Leeds and Aston Villa boss had taken the claim for 5.2million US dollars to FIFA following his dismissal one year into a three-year contract. The League Managers’ Association (LMA) said despite having sacked O’Leary, Al Ahli claimed the Irishman had abandoned his job. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Rogue too hot in Blazers

first_img The Mouse Morris-trained seven-year-old arrived on a losing run that stretched back to his only previous success over fences, which came at Punchestown on New Year’s Eve 2013. David Mullins got a great tune out of him here, though, and he found more than the challenging pair of Perfect Promise and Urano after the last to beat the former by a couple of lengths. Morris, who suffered bad luck in Wednesday’s Plate after Rule The World hit the deck when bang in contention, said: “There’s nothing like winning a Plate but it wasn’t to be so we’ll take this one. “I’ll have to talk to the owners now and see what they want to do.” Of Rule The World, Morris added: “He was probably just going too easy. Thankfully he’s grand, there’s one of those staying races in him, probably the Kerry National will be next, we’ll see.” Mullins said: “Everything really went to plan. I was able to save him everywhere and you save a lot of ground going around the inside here. “To be fair, I rode him in Roscommon and it was all just happening a bit quick. The ease in the ground and everything going to plan today really helped him. “He won the last day of the year in 2013 in Punchestown so we had no real doubts about his stamina, and his jumping was A1 so we said we’d ride him handy and that hopefully he’d stay going and he did. “I didn’t really see much after the second or third fence. I was just happy with everything, the way it was going. “We knew he’d be on his head for the first two or three fences. I didn’t get to make it over the first and the second but he really did enjoy it when he got to the front and everything just went to plan after that.” Rogue Angel (16-1) produced a gritty performance from the front to come out on top in the Guinness Galway Blazers Handicap Chase at Ballybrit.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Ghana Beach Soccer Association, Omniquest seal marketing agreement

first_imgThe Ghana Beach Soccer Association (GBSA) has signed an exclusive Marketing Consultancy agreement with OmniQUEST Limited.The agreement will see the association benefit from top-notch event marketing, branding solutions and sponsorship syndication from the media outfit.The Director of Omniquest, Frederick Amoah said his media agency will support the association to build upon the modest but impressive strides so far made.OmniQUEST brings to the GBSA, a rich background of sporting events and brands, including the Kinapharma Premier League, GHALCA’s annual Top 4 Tournament and the President’s Cup.As Head of Sports at Multi TV and lately Manager of Sports at TV3, Fred Amoah also brings immense media experience spanning Advertising, Public Relations and Sports Marketing to the GBSA.He created numerous TV sports programmmes currently running on both stations. Fred Amoah has moved to concentrate on sports brand building, asset management and events syndication. Under the terms of the agreement, OmniQUEST would actively support the operations of GBSA through packaging, branding and marketing of the local Beach Soccer leagues, marshaling of extensive media exposure for beach soccer, while creating a viable promotional platform for corporate Ghana to invest in the game.The national Beach Soccer team, when constituted, will benefit from OmniQUEST’s expertise.With just a few weeks to the commencement of the second season of the Ghana Beach Soccer Leagues, the agreement provides a timely and much needed boost for the GBSA.Over the past four years, beach soccer in Ghana has made tremendous strides from being a sport played for fun along most of the country’s coastlines, to a serious competitive discipline played under FIFA rules.There are currently twenty registered beach soccer clubs in the country following the first ever league selection gala in 2011 which was played in Ada. Immediately after the gala, the top ten teams were seeded and categorized into the Championship, with the remaining ten teams making up the Division 1 league.Currently with over 600 registered beach soccer players, the GBSA held it’s first ever congress in September 2011 at which executives were elected into office.Following congress, the maiden league season got underway with sponsorship from Cal Bank, Voltic Mineral Water and Clementia Contacto.Keta Sunset Sporting Club from the Volta region emerged winners of the Championship, whilst the Division 1 League was annexed by Teshie United BSC.Organising two competitive leagues with limited resources was a remarkable effort by the new association headed by Yaw Ampofo Ankrah. He believes the new partnership with OmniQUEST would strengthen beach soccer’s international brand appeal.“There is no doubt in my mind that with the support promised by the GFA and now a powerful partnership with OmniQUEST, branding and professionalism will advance beach soccer in Ghana”last_img read more

Copa America: Brazil edge past Venezuela into quarters without Neymar

first_imgBrazil were pushed all the way in their efforts to secure a Copa America quarter-final place, edging past Venezuela with an unconvincing and somewhat nervy 2-1 win.With Colombia and Peru drawing earlier in the evening, a draw would have secured both Brazil and Venezuela’s passage into the tournament’s final eight – however, Dunga’s side claimed top spot in Group C with the victory – setting up a meeting with Paraguay.Brazil came into their final group game of the Copa America without Neymar – who was handed a four-match suspension for his role in a post-match brawl in the mid-week defeat to Colombia.Robinho was instead handed the starting place as the focal point of their attack.Thiago Silva gave Brazil the lead with a thumping first half finish before Roberto Firmino doubled their advantage following a close-range finish following good work down the left wing by Willian. Mike’s late goal gave Venezuela hope of a fightback, but the Selecao just about held on.–last_img read more

Is Jarrett Stidham ready to be Patriots starting quarterback? His former coach thinks so

first_imgBleacher Report’s Matt Miller reported that one agent he spoke with tried to set up calls with New England to talk about his free agency or quarterback prospects in the draft. “Those calls, per the agent, came and went without a response from the Patriots,” Miller wrote.Stidham isn’t a speedster, but he offers the mobility the Patriots haven’t had at quarterback with Tom Brady. Stidham might not work out, but all signs point to him being the guy.A Day 3 pick getting thrown into the action at quarterback? For the Patriots? In just his second year? Success seems like a long shot, but you never know. A dozen quarterbacks were selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, and none were chosen by the Patriots.The first wave of free agency has come and gone with quarterbacks finding their new homes. The second wave seems dried up, too, with Andy Dalton now in Dallas and Jameis Winston in New Orleans.  So Bill Belichick either has something up his sleeve, or Jarrett Stidham will be the quarterback to lead the Patriots into the post-Tom Brady era.MORE: Why didn’t the Patriots draft a QB? Bill Belichick keeps everyone guessing again with NFL Draft strategyStidham has four passing attempts in an NFL career that began as the 133rd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Two of those attempts were caught by Patriots. A third was caught by Jets safety Jamal Adams and returned for a touchdown. His resume doesn’t stand out, but Belichick must like what he’s seen.Gus Malzahn, Stidham’s coach at Auburn, offered some insight on why the Patriots seem to be comfortable handing over the starting job to the second-year pro.”It definitely helped him to learn under the best and see what that looks like, but he’s the kind of young man, too, this is what he’s been waiting on,” Malzahn told “I’ll tell you, the moment won’t be too big for him. He’ll be up to the challenge, that’s what I expect.” Stidham played his final two seasons at Auburn after transferring from Baylor in wake of the program’s sexual abuse scandal. “Even when he got (to Auburn), before he played his first game, you could just kind of tell he was a mature young man,” Malzahn told ESPN. “Like a gym rat, always at the complex trying to learn, study film. When he got drafted by the Patriots, I thought it was a perfect spot for him system-wise — spreading the field. He’s so good with protections, changing protections, and scheme-wise everything that goes with it, and just the flexibility the scheme gives him. I think that really applies to his strength.”I’ve heard it now from A LOT of people close to the Patriots. They really believe in Jarrett Stidham.Like it or not, Stidham is not a cheap placeholder… he’s the future.— Rich Ohrnberger (@ohrnberger) May 2, 2020In 2017, Stidham led Auburn to the SEC Championship game, one win away from a birth in the College Football Playoff. He was considered a potential first-round pick before 2018, but fell down draft boards during the season after Auburn’s top two receivers tore their ACLs in the spring. Stidham was the second-ranked dual-threat quarterback after Kyler Murray in ESPN’s 2015 recruiting rankings. Per the NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, Stidham de-committed from Texas Tech in 2014 following Red Raiders’ Patrick Mahomes performance in matchup vs. Baylor in which Mahomes, who was a true freshman, threw for 598 yards in the AT&T Stadium matchup.Stidham’s talent has flashed in the past. The most telling indicator of his ability might just be the moves the Patriots didn’t make this offseason. Jordan Love fell in the draft to New England at pick 23, yet they traded down. The Patriots don’t have much cap space, but certainly could have afforded the $1 million price tag for Winston.last_img read more
