City trio laid low by illness

first_imgSergio Aguero, David Silva and Samir Nasri were sent home ill as Manchester City suffered a minor fitness scare ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season. But the problems are not thought to be serious and all three are expected to return to training ahead of next Monday’s Barclays Premier League opener at West Brom. Aguero sent a video message to the supporters at Wednesday’s event saying: “Sorry I can’t be there, I don’t feel well. I will be back soon.” Aguero, City’s top scorer last season with 32 goals from 41 appearances, might not be a definite starter at The Hawthorns anyway after returning late to training following his involvement in the Copa America. Manager Manuel Pellegrini last year eased the 27-year-old back into action after his World Cup exploits with Argentina. He started the first two league games on the bench and Pellegrini could adopt a similarly cautious approach this term with his prize asset, who has a history of muscle injury problems. New midfield signing Fabian Delph is doubtful for the opener after suffering a hamstring injury just 18 minutes into his debut in the pre-season friendly against Real Madrid in Melbourne a fortnight ago. Delph, who initially rejected a move to City before signing in an £8million deal, gave an upbeat update on his condition at City Live. The 25-year-old said: “Not the best debut but things can only get better from there. I’m feeling great now. The recovery is going well. We’ve got a great medical team here and I’m flying at the minute, so I am looking forward to coming back.” Captain Vincent Kompany also delivered an optimistic message to an audience of around 3,000 fans at the Manchester Central exhibition centre. City are hoping to reclaim the title after surrendering the crown to Chelsea last term. Kompany said: “The squad has been working really hard and you can tell we have improved. In training the level has increased. There have been a lot of hard sessions. We are going to go to the wire and be ready for the new season. It has to be a good one for us. “This club has to grow always. The future has to be bright. With this team we will keep improving and this club will keep growing, and we will be on top.” The trio complained of stomach bugs during training on Wednesday and were told to go home by a club doctor. That meant they were also unable to attend the club’s ‘City Live’ season launch party, where Aguero was due to pick up the 2014-15 player of the year award, in central Manchester in the evening. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

The Office for Civil Rights hosts discussion on Tyndall

first_imgLaura Faer, regional director of the San Francisco Office for Civil Rights, gave a presentation about how the OCR has been finding facts relevant to its investigation of USC. (Gabi Thur De Koos | Daily Trojan)The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights visited USC Wednesday to discuss the University’s response to complaints about former health center gynecologist George Tyndall. Following a one-hour community meeting, OCR reserved two hours for private discussions with students regarding the sexual assault allegations. Over 300 women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against Tyndall during his tenure at USC, since revelations of his alleged misconduct were first made public in May. Tyndall was a gynecologist at USC for nearly 30 years.The OCR is investigating USC’s compliance with Title IX, which prohibits educational institutions from discriminating on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment. Laura Faer, the regional director of the OCR office in San Francisco, started the meeting by speaking about OCR’s role in the investigative process. The investigation began on May 24, and concerns whether USC failed to respond promptly and equitably to notice of the harassment, and if they allowed any student to be subjected to a sexually hostile environment after being notified of the harassment.“We do not represent the complainant, and we do not represent the institutions who have alleged to have been engaging in discrimination,” Faer said. “During the investigation, as I discussed before, OCR is a neutral fact-finder.”Following Faer’s short presentation, three people testified publicly to nearly 30 people and the media. Mark Malan, a member of the staff assembly and an accountant in the Provost’s office, spoke on his experience with the “culture of silence” at USC. “I’m here to admit my guilt for not speaking out publicly on matters like this,” Malan said. “As staff at USC, we all know someone who knows something, who should step forward and speak, but we also know that they don’t. Because anyone who does, gets fired.” Malan argued that the University should abolish the arbitration agreement it forces employees to sign, which prevents staff members from suing USC. Malan said he believes USC equates legal actions with ethical behavior, which allows the University to discriminate systemically. “So I hope that part of OCR’s recommendation, to free the staff from the bonds that we are in, will be that the University needs to eliminate the arbitration agreement immediately,” Malan said. “Because otherwise, all of this is just going to happen again.” Dana Loewy spoke about her experience with Tyndall in the early 90s. She thanked OCR for conducting the investigation, and said she hoped there was more time being dedicated to this investigation than just the three-hour period reserved. “This is nothing short of scandalous,” Loewy said. “USC is guilty of maintaining a culture of silence and secrecy.” Loewy believes Provost Michael Quick and president emeritus C. L. Max Nikias should both step down from the University. Alumna Annette Richardson said that when she entered the University in the Fall of 2000, she needed a referral from Tyndall for an off-campus gynecologist. She called the encounter “the most uncomfortable exam” she had ever had. “At the time I was young, I didn’t know what else to do other than just go along with the visit,” Richardson said. “It felt like I was being molested by an unwanted sexual predator.” Richardson said she was extremely uncomfortable, in pain, and felt humiliated during the exam. After the appointment, she told the nurse what had happened. “She said, ‘That’s just how Dr. Tyndall is,’” Richardson said. “I’ve met women that have had horrible things happen since my visit, and it could have been prevented.”Following the testimony, the OCR began its two-hour session of 15-minute meetings with those who had signed up to speak to them. The investigation is ongoing. “The reason that I’m here is I want to stand up for anyone that has been abused through this system,” Richardson said. “We need to make changes so this doesn’t happen to anyone in the future.”last_img read more

EPL: Liverpool 2-1 Sunderland

first_imgReds survive nervy finish at Anfield as Gerrard and Sturridge keep title dream aliveAdam Johnson’s free-kick skipped across the face of the Liverpool goal, picking out defender John O’Shea. In 2007, he had scored the winner for Manchester United in injury time here, four minutes after Paul Scholes was sent off.It was not to be. O’Shea could only manage the faintest glance, and Liverpool breathed again. Their status as title contenders remained intact. The fans could continue singing about winning the league, without fear of mockery or contradiction. Sunderland still haven’t won since going out of the FA Cup.So it was close; but not that close. They haven’t had too many around these parts of late, but this is what a title race is like. Hard graft, thrills, spills, the occasional bellyache. Liverpool need to raise their game for the visits of Manchester City and Chelsea next month, but just imagine how many nights like this Manchester United went through chasing down the record number of titles won. Hundreds. Hundreds of occasions when a team fighting for its life at the foot of the table, proved unexpectedly defiant.last_img read more

Džeko is a world-class Player, and Pjanić is the best Player of B&H

first_imgWhen asked to comment on the upcoming matches of playoffs for the European Championships 2016 between the national football teams of B&H and Ireland, for which his former teammate from Manchester United John O’Shea plays, Rio Ferdinand dedicated special attention to Edin Džeko and Miralem Pjanić.“I think Džeko is a good player. I played against him several times. I am surprised that Manchester City let him go. He is someone who strikes all the time; we have seen that in the Champions League for Roma. He is a world-class player. I also played against him when he was in Wolfsburg, he is physically very strong and often defeats his guards. He is big and strong, aggressive, and he knows how to score,” said Ferdinand, explaining how Ireland should play against the BH national team.“The best thing that Ireland can do is to not allow the ball to reach Džeko at all. Pjanić is probably the best player of B&H and, if he gets enough balls, he can be very dangerous. John O’Shea and the company know they have to play tightly and firmly,” Ferdinand said.O’Shea will not play in the first match due to suspension, and he is currently recovering from tendon injury and it is doubtful whether he will be ready for the rematch in Dublin.(Source: read more
