Official: Net, sprained left ankle

first_imgBarça confirmed Thursday that Neto has a sprained left ankle although he did not report on the low time that the Brazilian will be. However, the substitute for Ter Stegan could stand up to three weeks, which would prevent him from playing round of 16 and quarterfinals in case Barça advanced. Net was injured by falling badly in a jump, but decided to continue with courage (he was cheered by the stands of Can Misses). At the end of the game he noticed that he was injured and the tests confirmed that sprain that will leave him without the option of playing in the only competition that was reserved for him. Eye to the goal in Barça because Ter Stegen comes from dragging a tendinopathy in the right knee that had him out of combat for a month and now he will have to face weeks with intersemanac matches. Doctors should pamper the German to prevent Setien from having a problem under sticks.last_img read more

Eight-member team heads to T&T swim meet

first_imgEight young swimmers will depart Jamaica for this year’s Amateur Swimming Association of Trinidad and Tobago Invitational Swimming Championships, a development meet set to run tomorrow through to Sunday in the twin-island Republic. The team will leave Jamaica today to compete at the four-day meet.

The team will be under the guidance of manager Georgia Sinclair and Ultra Short Race Pace Training (USRPT) certified Rory Alvaranga, who coaches four of the swimmers. “This development meet will expose them to high-level competition, and the experience will be a good one. It will allow them to come and perform personal bests, and just swim fast times,” Alvaranga pointed out. “I tell them to do what they are trained to do, and just have fun.” The coach says the environment will be one of the best to produce some fast swims to make those Carifta qualifying times, using an Olympic style platform starting block. Meanwhile, the Jamaicans will be competing at the six-month-old National Aquatic Centre in Couva, Trinidad. It was completed ahead of the Rio Olympics, meeting all International Federation for Aquatic Sports requirements for international events.

Wenger admits timing of Arsenal exit was out of his hands

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger attends a training session ahead of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid© AFP Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 25 – Arsene Wenger admitted Wednesday that the timing of his departure from Arsenal after more than two decades as manager was not his call.The 68-year-old Frenchman — who guided the Gunners to two domestic doubles and masterminded the 2004 “Invincibles”, as well as winning a record seven FA Cups — will hand over the reins to a new manager after this season. Wenger announced on Friday he would be stepping down a year before the end of his contract after another failure to sustain a Premier League title challenge.The club, in sixth place in the league, are desperate to win the Europa League as a way back into the Champions League next season.Wenger, speaking to the press ahead of Thursday’s semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid, made it clear he had not been in charge of his destiny.“The timing was not really my decision,” said the Arsenal boss, who added that he did not envisage retiring from the game.“At the moment I do my job, keep my routine and focus on what I have to do every day,” added the Frenchman, who is targeting his first European trophy.“At the moment I work like ever. You are never sure you do the right thing, but life is interesting because you have to deal with different situations. People want to know what the future is about, for me that is completely normal.“I honestly don’t know what I will do. Will I take a little rest? I will continue to work, that is for sure. At the moment I’m not ready to commit to anything else.”Wenger said he would have no say as to who succeeds him but spoke highly of former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique.“I don’t want to influence the next manager, but of course I have a high opinion of Luis Enrique.”Wenger, who revealed former rival Alex Ferguson called him on Tuesday, said he wanted a Hollywood-style ending for the players more than for himself.“Is there a perfect goodbye? I don’t know. I just want to do as well as I can,” said Wenger. “This group of players deserve something special and I want to do it for them, to achieve something with them.“My biggest satisfaction would be to be successful with the players we have.”Wenger will go into his final European home game as Arsenal boss with the boost of having Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Petr Cech available.The trio missed the weekend win over West Ham with minor problems but all trained on Wednesday.Wenger is also hopeful that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could recover from a knee injury to feature in the second leg in Madrid next week but Mohamed Elneny is out for the rest of the season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Durban’s waste to energy project

first_img11 October 2006The French Development Agency (AFD) is to contribute a loan of between R60- and R70-million to the eThekwini (Durban) Municipality for a project to generate electricity through the fermentation of household waste.The project is expected to generate up to 10 Megawatts of electricity – enough to illuminate about 9 000 homes – from landfill sites at the three Durban suburbs of Bisasar Road, Mariannhill and La Mercy.Gas recovery wells and generators are currently under construction at the three sites, where methane released by the waste will be converted into electric power by generators and fed directly into the city’s power grid.This will help cut back on the amount of coal burnt at the power stations that serve the city – and thus reduce South Africa’s production of greenhouse gases.“The project will enable South Africa to earn carbon credits through the Clean Development Mechanism,” the French Embassy said in a statement following the signing of the loan agreement with the AFD in Durban on Tuesday.“These carbon credits will be sold through the Prototype Carbon Fund managed by the World Bank.”The project is one of the first in South Africa to be eligible for carbon credit trading.The AFD, which supports development projects in the fields of energy efficiency, service delivery and job creation, plans to contribute over R3-billion to local projects as part of a recently signed Framework Charter for Partnership between France and South Africa.SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
