The crisis also affects the future of Ceballos in Madrid

first_imgThe future of Dani Ceballos (23 years old) is also affected by the coronavirus crisis. The Real Madrid footballer left last summer on loan to Arsenal with the aim of playing the minutes that Zidane did not give him to be able to go to the Euro Cup, the Games (he goes by age, but was aiming to get into the top three) ) and value yourself with great performances. However, the postponement of both competitions to 2021 due to the pandemic has changed his pace and the Sevillian is again like this summer: with his future in the air and with two competitions that he hopes to play on the horizon. Right now, the midfielder only sees uncertainty if he returns to Madrid in a key season to be able to go to the Eurocup. After recovering from his injury and before the break for COVID-19, he had returned to take the pedal stroke with Arsenal, to feel important with Arteta, and does not want a new braking. So the solution could go through another transfer (Betis dreams of his return). However, Real Madrid will not make a decision lightly considering the next context of the transfer markets. Experts agree that the transfer world will experience the aftermath of the crisis after the pandemic and everything will depend on the reinforcements that Madrid can make in midfield. It is not ruled out, of course, that Ceballos is in the next squad due to the new economic scenario. What they do have clear at the Santiago Bernabéu is that the Utrerano is an asset of the club (he is 23 years old) from which they would not want to part with. They would only contemplate a transfer from 50 million euros (it was signed in 2017 for 16.5), an amount that seems complicated for some club to disburse this summer due to the crisis that is coming. A crisis that has carried ahead the plans of many athletes. Among them, those of Ceballos. Ceballos will return to Madrid from his loan at Arsenal when the season is over. He still has three years of contract with the white club, but his intention when defining his future is to prioritize playing above everything. Something that, because of what he stated in his last interview in #Vamos, he does not see very clearly: “Right now in Madrid it is difficult to play with the players there are. Now I focus on being important in a club. “ To this pessimism of the utrerano the bit is added feeling that Zidane has with him and some other disagreement. Especially painful for the player was the day the coach from Marseille took 28 seconds at Butarque… “I have not spoken to Zidane since I left,” Ceballos acknowledged in #Vamos.last_img read more

first_imgLetterkenny 24/7 club had a number of members travel to Dublin to take part in the 36th SSE Airtricity Dublin City Marathon on the Bank Holiday Monday. Wet and windy conditions didn’t dampen the spirits of thousands of runners as they took to the streets. Everyone found the conditions hard going at some point and many realised that a marathon is a distance that must be respected! For some members it was their first marathon, others had some experience but for all it was test of their determination and ability to dig deep when the going got tough. Each finisher has spoken of the support along the route and how the encouragement of strangers, friends and family made the experience so memorable and dulled the aches and pains of the race. Dublin Marathon is known as the “friendly marathon” and it was no wonder that it was voted the best marathon in the world last year. On Monday it lived up to its title.

‘Lazy’ Ozil’s tackling stats revealed – and they put his critics to shame

first_imgHoeness rounded on the player after his announcement, declaring to SportBild: “Ozil has been playing s*** for years.“He won his last tackle before the 2014 World Cup.“All he is doing on the field is playing cross passes.

Freeman scored the match’s lone goal in the season opener at NDSU and Armstrong recorded her first career two-goal performance in the win at UIC.

Singer at Pan Celtic Festival suffers life-threatening wasp attack

first_imgA singer at the recent Pan Celtic Festival in Letterkenny suffered a life-threatening attack after being stung by a wasp. Highland Gaelic singer Louise Glen suffered a severe anaphylactic shock after being stung by a wasp at an airport while returning to her home in Scotland after leaving Donegal.Thankfully Louise was saved by a member of a neighbouring choir. The drama unfolded as Argyll choir Atomaig Piseag – which won a top prize at the festival – shared a bus back to the airport with members of Burach, a choir from Morvern in Lochaber.Fortunately for Ms Glen, she was sitting near Burach member Susan Taylor, a GP from Lochaline.Ms Glen told the Press and Journal newspaper: “The fact I had an Epipen probably saved my life. Two years ago I discovered I was allergic to penicillin and ended up in hospital for three weeks.“We were all singing on the back of the bus having great fun. I thought I must have been bitten by something, then my mouth started to tingle. This massive wasp appeared, and my mouth started to swell. Lucky – Louise Glen.“Susan was sitting three in front of me. I didn’t know whether to take my Epipen, Susan told me to do it. I took a wee turn then I felt fine.“When I got off the bus I collapsed. I remember being on the ground. I hardly remember the ambulance arriving. I was really ill. They called it severe anaphylactic reaction.“If you don’t have an Epipen the potential is your throat closes over totally. I was really struggling to breathe.“Susan was incredible while we were waiting for an ambulance to arrive. She saved my life. If that choir hadn’t been there it could have been so different.”Instead of taking the flight home, Dr Taylor stayed in Ireland with Ms Glen, before she was released from hospital the following day. The modest doctor said: “I didn’t save her life. She saved her own life by having an Epipen with her.“Anyone who has had an anaphylactic reaction needs to be aware. Louise did all the right things. If you think you are having a reaction it is really important to use your Epipen, even if it is a bit scary.”Iain Reid, a Mid Argyll Transport Volunteer, was also in Ireland at a family holiday home in Port Rush. He gave the doctor accommodation for the evening, and drove both her and Ms Glen from Derry to Belfast Airport the next day.Atomaig Piseag won the President’s Award for first place in the unaccompanied choral singing at the Pan Celtic Festival.
