Letter threatened Conte’s daughter

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Inter coach Antonio Conte received a letter threatening his daughter, but also staff member and former Juventus fitness coach Antonio Pintus. The letter, which has reportedly been traced back to Florence, contained a rifle cartridge and a threatening letter directed at the former Juventus coach with the text “we know where you live and who your daughter is.” La Stampa reports that the local police in Milan has been in touch with Conte and he doesn’t recognise the writing, nor the content particularly reminding him of anyone. The letter contained an eight-gauge cartridge, mainly used for hunting, and could be tracked back to Florence by the authorities. There’s a possible supporter of an opposing team, who is annoyed by the Inter side and their good performances this term, but also one from the Nerazzurri who doesn’t approve of his past in Turin. The fact Pintus, formerly of Juventus and Real Madrid, was also mentioned would suggest it is a grudge about their Bianconeri past. The letter contained writing in black, listing the names of his family members and the text: “We know where you live… We know who your daughter is.” However, the letter was sent to the Inter HQ and not directly to Conte’s home, which suggests the information about his address is incorrect. The police are investigating and will be analysing the document for fingerprints. Il Giorno reports that the first investigations aren’t connecting it to the world of the ultras, but rather a disgruntled individual seeking attention.last_img read more

Lillard leads Trail Blazers past Pacers

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. Damian Lillard scored 26 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 19 points and a season-high 17 rebounds to lead Portland (24-21). C.J. McCollum scored 16 points and Shabazz Napier 13 for the Blazers.Just six weeks ago, the Blazers lost six consecutive games during a late-November, early December stretch. But starting Dec. 28 with a victory over Philadelphia, Portland has returned to its winning ways in Moda Center.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hosting“Overall our team has just locked in a little bit more,” Lillard said. “We had a rough stretch. We’re not the first team or the last team that’ll have that. The important thing when you have times like that is to stay together and stay with it. I think we’re just in a better place on the floor as a group.”Several wins during this streak looked like Thursday’s, a game in which Portland had most of the answers during the fourth quarter. Tied at 74 after three quarters, the Blazers outscored Indiana 26-12 during the final period to pull out the win. “That’s the hustle game you have to win,” McMillan said. “We have to give help to our bigs down in the paint. They outworked us, and won that game.”Nurkic had one of his most productive games as a Blazer, missing his career high by three rebounds. Nurkic got going early, hitting his first three shots during the first five minutes. Stotts said he didn’t recall running plays for Nurkic, saying he was doing it all on effort.“When he got in the paint, he was finishing early,” Lillard said of Nurkic. “He played strong. Even on the defensive end, he was contesting shots at the rim. . When he plays that way on both ends, we’re a much better team.”Indiana was without forward Myles Turner, the team’s second-leading scorer this season. Turner has missed five consecutive games with a right elbow injury.McCollum sprinted from the floor to the locker room early in the fourth quarter with a brief bout of nausea, but returned a few minutes later.Portland led 52-47 at halftime, and the difference was a pair of buzzer-beaters: McCollum’s 3-pointer at the end of the first quarter, and Lillard’s desperation layup off a drive to finish the second quarter.TIP-INSPacers: The last time Indiana won in Portland was Nov. 28, 2007. … Of the 12 games Turner has missed this season, two came against Portland. … Lance Stephenson missed the team’s morning shootaround with an illness, but played. He finished with no points on 0-of-6 shooting from the floor and missed both of his foul shots. … Indiana is 2-1 on its current five-game road trip, having won at Phoenix and Utah.Trail Blazers: Led by 12 boards from Nurkic, Portland outrebounded Indiana 29-18 in the first half. … Nurkic had a double-double in the first half with 12 points and 12 rebounds. … Portland swept the season series from Indiana for the third time in four seasons. The Blazers won 114-96 over the Pacers on Oct. 20. … Al-Farouq Aminu is averaging 13 points and 10 rebounds in his last four games against Indiana.MAKING UP FOR POOR SHOOTINGPortland won despite shooting just 39.4 percent from the floor (37 of 94), and 31.2 percent from 3-point range (10 of 32). Only once has Portland shot worse and won a game this season.The Blazers made up for it in other ways, like free throw shooting. They were 16 of 16, the third time they’ve been perfect from the line in a game this season, an NBA high. The Blazers also converted 14 offensive rebounds into 24 second-chance points. “In the third quarter, I thought we gave them a lot of opportunities,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “In the fourth quarter, it was good to see the lead expand without having very many mistakes.”Portland took control late in the third quarter, when the Blazers held Indiana scoreless for more than five minutes. It was part of Portland’s 21-2 run, during which Shabazz Napier scored eight points to help erase a six-point deficit and give the Blazers an 89-76 lead midway through the fourth quarter.Napier kick-started the rally during the final seconds of the third quarter, when he made a backcourt steal, then hit a corner 3-pointer as time expired to tie the game at 74.Victor Oladipo and Darren Collison scored 23 points each for Indiana (24-21).Indiana coach Nate McMillan had an eye on the stat sheet in assessing what went wrong for the Pacers. Portland outrebounded Indiana 57-46, and scored 24 second-chance points to the Pacers’ 10.ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ LATEST STORIES Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim Embiid drops 26 as Sixers nip Celtics Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais ‘We cannot afford to fail’ as SEA Games host – Duterte BeautyMNL open its first mall pop-up packed with freebies, discounts, and other exclusives ‘A complete lie:’ Drilon refutes ‘blabbermouth’ Salo’s claims Jordan delivers on promise: 2 Cobra choppers now in PH PH military to look into China’s possible security threat to power grid MOST READ Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard shoots over Indiana Pacers center Domantas Sabonis during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Portland, Ore., Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018.

FIFA World Cup 2014: Five key players from Costa Rica

first_imgPSV Eindhoven forward Bryan Ruiz is the biggest name in the Costa Rica squad headed to BrazilThree of the teams in Group D are loaded with famous players, like Italy striker Mario Balotelli, England forward Wayne Rooney and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez. The odd one out is Jorge Luis Pinto’s Costa Rica.Perhaps PSV Eindhoven forward Bryan Ruiz is the biggest name in the Costa Rica squad headed to Brazil. That will make it difficult for Costa Rica to advance from a difficult group.On its side is the fact that half of the Central American country’s squad is made up of players who are based in Europe.Here are five players to watch:KEYLOR NAVASCosta Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas is likely to have a lot to do, but he has had his best season for Levante and is considered one of the top ‘keepers in the Spanish league.There are reports in Spanish media that Navas could move to a higher-profile club, something a good performance at the World Cup might secure.”You always want to play in the big teams, but at the moment I am a Levante player,” Navas said.Navas left Costa Rica for Spain in 2010, but only made his first-division debut in May 2012.BRYAN RUIZBryan Ruiz is the most established Costa Rican player in Europe and its best known after his stint in the Premier League with Fulham.Ruiz, Costa Rica’s most creative player, is allowed to stray inside from his right midfield position.advertisementRuiz joined PSV from Fulham in January. He moved to Europe in 2006 to join Belgian side Gent before moving to FC Twente in the Netherlands and then Fulham in 2011.BRYAN OVIEDOEverton left back Bryan Oviedo has been in a race to be fit for Brazil after breaking his leg in January, although the Premier League club stated in March that he is on course to be back playing in time for the World Cup.Oviedo had enjoyed a positive first half of the season for Everton, standing in for England international Leighton Baines.Oviedo remains an important part of Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto’s plans, especially due to his attacking bursts from the left wing and his ability to cross the ball.JOEL CAMPBELLJoel Campbell made a good impression in the Champions League for Greek club Olympiakos this season and has been loaned out by parent club Arsenal to French team Lorient and Spanish club Real Betis over the last three years.Campbell is fast, tricky and can play on the wing or inside and is the bright young starlet of Costa Rican football. Much is expected of him.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger suggested in February that Campbell does have a future at the London club. A good World Cup may just make it sooner rather than later.CELSO BORGESA central midfielder, Celso Borges is the pivot of Costa Rica’s team and already has made more than 50 appearances for his country.Borges plays for Swedish club AIK and is known for his ability to score goals from his midfield position.The son of Brazilian coach Alexandre Guimaraes, who was in charge of Costa Rica at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, Borges has played for his country from the under-17 level all the way up to the first team.last_img read more

How Fabian Delph persuaded Guardiola to be part of his plans

first_imgThe former Leeds and Aston Villa player Fabian Delph said his diet helped him to cut out the muscle injuries that had dogged his career. It also helped him persuade Guardiola to make him part of his plans despite his major overhaul of the City squad.He also admits he is one of the best examples of a player who has benefited from Guardiola’s influence both inside and outside the pitch, according to Daily Mail.“I changed my diet in terms of getting it more balanced. I cut out red meat and sugar and started eating more greens, more vegetables,” said Delph. “We’ve got a fantastic nutritionist at the club, Tom Parry, and he has helped me tremendously. I only had a couple of niggles all season which is fantastic for me.”Everton’s 25 million pound man Gbamin out for 3 months George Patchias – August 26, 2019 Everton’s 25 million pound summer signing Jean-Philippe Gbamin has been ruled out for up to 3 months.The Ivory Coast international, joined the Goodison Park…“He’s fantastic. For me, he is a genius,” said Delph. “He has opened my eyes to so much. I didn’t picture football like Pep does. He’s painted the pictures for me.“I stayed mentally strong, and I knew if I got my opportunity to play I could contribute and help the lads win games.“I’m a very traditional English guy who believes in hard work and dedication and giving it absolutely everything. I’m there to fight and pick up second balls, to be that old English type of player, but he has reinvented me.last_img read more

Steve Cook hits out at Troy Deeney

first_imgBournemouth defender Steve Cook has hit out at Watford’s Troy Deeney following his comments about Dan Gosling’s tackle on Tom Cleverley.Gosling was shown a yellow card for a robust second-half challenge on Cleverley which saw him win the ball but then wipe out the midfielder.Deeney made a series of comments during the post-match interviews after the  3-3 draw between Watford and Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, including questioning the decisions of referee David Coote.But Cook felt the Watford captain had got it wrong regarding Gosling, who was making his first appearance since injuring his knee in November.The Cherries center-half also insists Abdoulaye Doucoure’s ugly first-half tackle on Ryan Fraser had been a significantly worse offence than that of Gosling.He said, according to Bournemouth Echo:Brad Smith is loving his time at MLS Manuel R. Medina – August 27, 2019 Smith has been loaned from AFC Bournemouth to Seattle Sounders for a whole season, and the Australian footballer is enjoying his time there.“That’s strange coming from Troy because as a physical striker, I don’t think anyone tries to do anyone.”“If we’re doing people, Doucoure’s done Goso.”“That’s a poor comment from him. It’s strange because he’s a good guy. He was desperate for him to be sent off, actually, but that would have been an awful decision.”“Doucoure’s tackle was twice as bad as Goso’s.”“I think (Doucoure) was probably not 100 percent in control. I haven’t seen it back slowly but on another day he could have seen red.”last_img read more

Governor asked to rescind Phillips appointment to HOA

first_img The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 29, 2016 –  The Governor is being asked to rescind one of his choices for Appointed Member to the House of Assembly; not because of the man’s character but on principal.  Former Premier, Michael Misick echoes the sentiments of some in the country that Hon John Phillips should not have been reappointed to the House of Assembly, that the honour of a second and pensionable term of service to the people should be earned through an election, not given by an appointment.   In a media statement issued on Wednesday, Misick said,:  “While I don’t agree that the governor should be appointing any person to our parliament, while he has that power, he should exercise it responsibly and in the wider public interest.  I have nothing against Mr. Phillips personally.   I have known him for a very long time and believe that he has made a significant contribution to parliament over the last four years.   However I believe there are other citizens that are equally as capable of making a contribution and should be given a chance.”  Misick continued, “If you are going to serve parliament two consecutive times and be pensionable, you should run for office.   I call on the governor to review and rescind the appointment of Mr. John Phillips to Parliament.”  Philips, originally from Scotland is a near 30 year resident of the islands, a business owner and Belonger; he will serve for a second time as a Governor appointee and was a member of the Consultative Forum, a group of Islanders which functioned in Parliament during the suspension of the TCI Constitution between 2009 to 2012.#MagneticMediaNews Related Items:#magneticmedianews Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
