“Players are human; you don’t have to play every other day”

first_imgLuis Rubiales made a parenthesis in his confinement to give a conference in the Federation, which was offered telematically. The president announced an important package of measures and made himself available to the executive to help. – When soccer returns, could it be played every other day?-It is not feasible to play every 48 hours. We don’t like playing fortune tellers and now is not the time to make calendars. We don’t set a date to play again. The date is for this pandemic battle to be won. The guarantee is health. The president of AFE said in a meeting that they were willing to play every 48 hours, which surprised me a lot. So I have asked for a medical study. There is no need to squeeze the players. Those of us who have played football know that playing every 48 hours is inhumane. Players are not machines.-If the seasons overlap, won’t you lose a lot of money?-There are two ways, try to start as it is and at all costs, which is not our option, or put health first. If we take part in the following season, we are going to lose money, and that is why we offer an economic plan that goes through a loan with the guarantee of the rights of professional clubs.-Are you proposing to LaLiga to ask for a 500 million credit for professional football?-The scenario of requesting a credit of five hundred million passes, effectively, by taking dates for the next season. Because we see it impossible to start in May. The UME is setting up hospitals, how will football return in May? Well the next scenario is to play past June. And if that causes economic damage, then we propose the credit. It is an option that we make available to LaLiga.-Do you think the Championship can end?-Our idea is that the season must end. The only way is to get to the end, whenever. We do not want to return at all costs, but right now we have to give the opportunity to the teams that are in decline that can go out, to those who are about to ascend, then give them the opportunity to climb … When the country recovers and we have guaranteed health will be the time to return, not before.-Would you go back to closed doors?-You have to respect all calendars, from that of the National Team or LaLiga to that of the youngest. Now is not the time to confront, it is time to reach agreements. If the Government authorizes to play behind closed doors, then we will do everything they tell us. But our option is to play with the public. But in the other case, what the clubs say will be done.-What will happen to the Olympic players who are older in 2021?-My thanks to Alejandro Blanco, president of the COE, with whom we have spoken about the Games. I transmitted to him that these JJ OO had to be suspended. It would be unfair if the footballers who come of age next year cannot play the Games. It is only fair that everyone who can play this year be respected for next year.-What do you think of the ERTEs in football? -The ERTEs are more a matter of employers and unions than of the Federation. In what I trust that what is done is with the maximum precision. The Federation complies with the income, and this is a difference with professional football, which lives a lot on television. What we have done in the RFEF that can be done in professional soccer is to advance money. We are going to look for a syndicated loan with the big banks in Spain and we are going to guarantee the rights of those clubs. This is what we have done, and I think it is the solution for professional football.Could player contracts end beyond June 30?-We are contemplating going beyond June 30 with player contracts. UEFA is in a way of thinking to ours. The first thing is health, and then finish the competitions. We plan to end the season as planned. You have to end with the same rules that you started with.-What will happen to the Cup final?-The Cup, both that of the King and that of the Queen, is to be played with the public. That is our idea, but we do not control all the factors. We do not know what the authorities will say, but we chose to play both finals with the public. Out of respect for all the teams that have participated, the finalists and their hobbies.-What do you think of Infantino’s proposal to cut the calendar?-Infantino has asked for fewer matches and shorter competitions, and what he has said is there. What I say is that health comes first. You have to find a balance between the calendars of the clubs and the teams, because the players are not machines. We at the RFEF have freed days with the Copa del Rey. Among all, FIFA and UEFA, you have to work with leagues and clubs to find solutions.-Is it time to make peace with Thebes?– It is necessary to reduce the tensions and to try to add. I reach out (to Javier Tebas) to reach agreements. Neither my opinions nor I will change theirs, but it is time to add. It is time to look for solutions and be united.– What do you think that in all the published polls Casillas wins?-I’m not going to talk about elections, because I have all the focus on the coronavirus crisis. I respect the polls, but I am not talking about the elections. What worries me is the coronavirus.-How are you following the confinement?-I am living the pandemic alone, in my house and isolated. But with a lot of work and missing my daughters, who are with their mother in Valencia. It gets tough, and I remember my parents, my sister, and my friends a lot. But the only way to stop this virus is to isolate ourselves.-What will happen if there are regrowths when the League starts again?There are no answers to know what will happen when we return, if there are infections, if we have to repeat the quarantine in a team … all of this worries us a lot. So we have ordered a medical report. The statistics change every day, and now we are in a very bad moment, of growth of the pandemic. This now requires a lot of calm and a message of hope and unity.last_img read more

Elections for City Mayor, Deputy slated for March 15

first_img…Chase Green expected to seek re-electionPursuant to the Municipal and Districts Councils Act Chapter 28:01, Section 10, elections for Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the City of Georgetown will be held on March 15. Current Mayor Patricia Chase Green, refused to comment on whether she would be seeking re-election while Deputy Mayor Lionel Jaikaran, has expressed his interest in possible re-election.“The term of the Office of the Mayor and that of the Deputy Mayor shall, subject to this Act, be one year, commencing on the first day of the month following upon their election but, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor shall, notwithstanding the expiry of his term of office, continue to hold office until his successor enters upon office and thereupon he shall retire,” the Municipal and Districts Councils Act Chapter 28:01, Section 10 states.The last election for Mayor and Deputy Mayor were held in December 2016, which Chase Green contested without any opposition. However, since her election, there have been several calls for her to resign and be replaced for the policies that were implemented along with the perceived notion of corruption.Chase Green, who served as Deputy Mayor for a number of years under former Mayor Hamilton Green, is accused of being unsympathetic to the cause of the Council’s workers since she and teams of officers and Councillors would travel frequently while the workers protest for the payment of their salaries.Additionally, it was under Chase Green’s stewardship that the highly flawed and controversial parking metre project came into being. The M&CC had entered into a contract with Smart City Solutions Inc on May 13, 2016, for parking metres to be implemented in Georgetown but this was followed by intense protests by citizens.Meanwhile, Jaikaran did not confirm nor deny whether he would challenge Chase Green for the mayoral chair but indicated that he would be running for office.

Stabroek Wharf vendors to be relocated next Friday

first_imgStabroek Wharf vendors who will have to relocate their businesses because of the partial collapse of the structure will be taking up positions within the barricaded Route 42 bus park in the Stabroek Market Square as of next Friday.This decision taken by the Georgetown City Council was reportedly communicated to the vendors sometime last week via notice.According to the document seen by this publication, an inspection was conducted two weeks ago by Chief City Engineer Colvern Venture, who inked in his report that the sixth section of the wharf was uninhabitable and unsuitable to accommodate vending activities.The vendors were also thus notified: “Failure to remove from the said stelling when stipulated will result in lawful measures being employed to ensure your [theThe dilapidated roofvendors’] compliance.”Further, vendors were reminded that continued occupation of the wharf could prove detrimental; thus their compliance is essential.When Guyana Times on Wednesday visited the area which has been identified for the relocation, works were in progress to prepare the area for the vendors. This included the erection of concrete structures to demarcate the zones for operation.One of the vendors told this publication that they had, for many months, waited for action to be taken to fix the wharf, and are hoping that works would be completed in a timely manner. He added that vagrants are occupying the wharf both during the day and at night, making it unsafe for vendors to house their goods.Moreover, the vendor said, the presence of vagrants at the wharf further degrades the aesthetics of the shopping area, and customers are afraid to venture into the area.“It good that we just got to wait a couple more days till we get to go out there, cause they say is next week on the paper; but I hope is that, cause you get a set of junkie and all kinda things happening at the back here. So is good if they can doA section of the unsafe flooring of the wharfthe works and get we back here in a better state,” the vendor expressed.It was reported since June 2016 that Town Clerk Royston King had declared the commencement of works after the Council had received word from the Public Infrastructure Ministry to go ahead with the project.Nevertheless, in November of 2017, the works were still pending, and this publication was informed that to facilitate rehabilitation of the wharf, vendors would be relocated to the west of the Parliament Building following the removal of the Island Snackette and Pizzeria. According to City Hall, the expectation was to transfer vendors there by the end of November 2017.At that time, the budget for the complete refurbishment of the wharf was pegged at some $400 million. After the repairs, the section of the market which faces the Demerara River would be converted into a mall, inclusive of a boardwalk and entertainment areas. If the ideas are approved by the vendors, they would be required to pay a larger sum of money to rent sections of the new building.Over the years, more than 300 vendors were situated at the wharf, but the number dwindled following insecurities posed by the deteriorating structure.
