Labour aim to seize parliamentary time to try to stop no-deal Brexit

LONDON ( ) – Britain’s opposition Labour Party said on Tuesday it would try to take control of the parliamentary agenda on June 25 to give lawmakers the chance to introduce legislation aimed at preventing a no-deal Brexit.

Several of the candidates vying to replace Prime Minister Theresa May have said they would not be 上海夜生活论坛willing to delay Britain’s European Union beyond the end of October, even if it meant leaving without a deal.

A majority of lawmakers oppose leaving without a deal and other leadership contenders have warned parliament will block any attempt to do so. One, former Brexit minister Dominic Raab, has even raised the possibility of suspending parliament until after Oct. 31 to prevent it happening.

“The debate on Brexit in the Tory (Conservative) leadership contest has descended into the disturbing, the ludicrous and the reckless,” said Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer.

“None of the likely candidates for the top job has a credible plan for how to break the deadlock before the end of October.”

Labour said it would use an opposition day debate on Wednesday to vote on a motion, supported by lawmakers from several parties including the Scottish National Party, the Liberal Democrats and a member of May’s Conservatives, to seize parliamentary time on June 25.

If successful, Members of Parliament (MPs) could then use that time to introduce legislation to try and avoid Britain leaving on Oct. 31 without a deal, Labour said.

“MPs cannot be bystanders while the next Tory Prime Minister tries to crash the UK out of the European Union without a deal and without the consent of the British people. That’s why we are taking this latest measure to end the uncertainty and protect communities across the country,” Starmer added.

Earlier this year, MPs used a similar process to pass a law, despite government opposition, that mandated May to seek more time from the EU.

This alone would not have prevented a no-deal, as the EU has to agree to any extension. Only legislating to revoke the Article 50 exit notification would stop Brexit happening.

EU moves closer to debt action as Italy angles for compromise

ROME/BRUSSELS ( ) – The European Union moved closer on Tuesday to taking disciplinary action over Italy’s growing debt, as authorities in Rome made tentative steps to avert a procedure that could saddle the country with large fines and alienate investors.

Envoys of EU governments agreed that action was warranted, a confidential document seen by showed, confirming the assessment of the European Commission that Italy is in breach of fiscal rules by failing to cut its huge public debt.

The Commission’s outgoing president, Jean-Claude Juncker, said Italy was “moving in an unsound direction” and risked a procedure that could last years.

Italy and the Commission have been at loggerheads on fiscal issues since a euroskeptic coalition government took office in Rome a year ago armed with ambitious spending plans.

However, in a rare show of unity after successive bouts of infighting in recent months, the coalition’s leaders agreed overnight on a willingness to address the EU’s concerns.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said after they met that they would work together to avert the disciplinary action.

“Our shared goal is to avoid the infringement while safeguarding economic growth, employment, as well as tax cuts,” added Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini of the far-right League.

Italy’s debt has risen steadily from a pre-financial crisis low of 104% of domestic output in 2007 and now stands at 132%, second only to Greece’s within the euro zone. The Commission forecast it will rise further to 135% next year.

Brussels also wants Rome to cut its structural deficit, which excludes one-off revenues, to make its debt more sustainable.

EU governments agreed the disciplinary procedure would be avoided if Rome made new offers, two European sources said.

‘NO TAX INCREASES’

But, emboldened by the League’s strong showing in last month’s European elections and in local polls, Salvini has made tax cuts a priority and has repeatedly taken aim at Brussels, calling for an overhaul of EU fiscal rules.

He insisted on Tuesday that “there won’t be any budget correction nor tax increases.”

Finance Minister Giovanni Tria, a technocrat, played down the events in Brussels, saying the final decision would lie with the bloc’s finance ministers.

He ag上海夜生活论坛reed a budget correction was not necessary, though one would be implemented if needed, and said Italy’s deficit would be lower than initially forecast due to lower expenditure.

But that may not be enough to stave off EU action.

Brussels will now intensify talks to obtain more fiscal commitments from Rome.

But if no compromise is found, the EU Commission could recommend the opening of the procedure as early as June 26, one official said. EU states would have then to agree to formally launch it in their last meetings before the summer break on July 8-9. The procedure could also lead to unprecedented fines.

To complicate the picture, Rome is also scrambling to avoid a sales-tax increase worth 23 billion euros, which is due to kick in automatically next year unless the money can be found elsewhere.

Both the League and its coalition partner 5-Star Movement have ruled out a sales tax hike, but have yet to spell out how they will cover the gap.

G20 finance chiefs express concern over risks from ‘intensified’ trade conflict

FUKUOKA, Japan ( ) – Group of 20 fi上海夜生活论坛nance leaders on Sunday said that trade and geopolitical tensions have “intensified”, raising risks to improving global growth, but they stopped short of calling for a resolution of a deepening U.S.-China trade conflict.

After fiery negotiations that nearly aborted the issuance of a communique, finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in southern Japan repeated tepid support for a rules-based multilateral trading system.

“Global growth appears to be stabilizing and is generally projected to pick up moderately later this year and into 2020,” the G20 finance leaders said in a communique issued as the meetings in Fukuoka closed.

“However, growth remains low and risks remain tilted to the downside. Most importantly, trade and geopolitical tensions have intensified. We will continue to address these risks and stand ready to take further action.”

It also said that G20 finance leaders had agreed to compile common rules by 2020 to close loopholes used by global tech giants such as Facebook and Google to reduce their corporate taxes.

The communique also contained pledges to increase debt transparency on the part of borrowers and creditors. Another priority is sustainable infrastructure development, an issue brought into sharper focus by concerns that China’s massive Belt and Road infrastructure drive was saddling poor countries with debt they can’t repay.

DROPPED CLAUSE

However, the final language excluded a proposed clause to “recognize the pressing need to resolve trade tensions”, which was dropped from a previous draft debated on Saturday.

The deletion, which G20 sources said came at the insistence of the United States, shows a desire by Washington to avoid encumbrances as it increases tariffs on Chinese goods. The statement also contains no admissions that the deepening U.S.-China trade conflict is hurting global growth.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde emphasized that “the first priority should be to resolve the current trade tensions” while working to modernize international trading rules.

The IMF this week warned that, while growth is still expected to improve this year and next, the U.S.-China tariff war could cut 0.5 percent from global GDP output in 2020, about the size of G20 member South Africa’s economy.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Saturday said he did not see any impact on U.S. growth from the trade conflict and that the government would take steps to protect consumers from higher tariffs.

Mnuchin met People’s Bank of China (PBOC) Governor Yi Gang on Sunday in the first meeting of high-level U.S. officials in a month, but it produced no immediate result. Mnuchin described the meeting as “constructive” and “a candid discussion on trade issues”, but offered no further detail.

The PBOC said in a statement that the two finance officials “exchanged views on global economic and financial situation, G20 issues, as well as topics of mutual interest”.

The Buenos Aires G20 summit in December 2018 marked the start of a five-month trade truce between the United States and China to allow for negotiations to end their intensifying trade war. But those talks hit an impasse last month, prompting both sides to impose higher tariffs on each other’s goods as the conflict nears its first anniversary.

TRUMP-XI SUMMIT

The widening fallout from the U.S.-China trade war has tested the resolve of the group to show a united front as investors worry if policymakers can avert a global recession.

The bickering over trade language has dashed hopes of Japan, which chairs this year’s G20 meetings, to keep trade issues low on the various agendas at the finance leaders’ meeting.

Mnuchin said that U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping would meet at a June 28-29 G20 summit in Osaka, but the meeting has not been confirmed by China.

The planned meeting was said by Mnuchin to have parallels with the two presidents’ Buenos Aires meeting on Dec. 1, when Trump was poised to increase tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods.

Trump took that step in May and will be ready to impose similar 25% tariffs on a remaining $300 billion list of Chinese goods around the time of the Osaka summit.

At the Buenos Aires meeting, the G20 leaders described international trade and investment as “important engines of growth, productivity, innovation, job creation and development. We recognize the contribution that the multilateral trading system has made to that end,” their communique said.

The leaders in that communique called for reform of World Trade Organization rules that they said were falling short of objectives and pledged to review progress at the Japan summit.

Trump may discuss secretary of state job with critic Romney: source

NEW YORK ( ) – U.S. President-elect Donald Trump planned a Saturday meeting with Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and fierce Trump critic, and may discuss whether he should be a candidate for secretary of state, a source familiar with the meeting said on Thursday.

Trump already has a lengthy list of potential candidates for the post of top U.S. diplomat, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who met Trump on Thursday.

Trump, a former reality TV star, has shown a flair for the dramatic in his deliberations over his Cabinet, saying only he knows who “the finalists” are.

Corker told CNN on Wednesday he was “in the mix” for the position but that Trump might pick someone who was closer to him during the presidential campaign. He met on Thursday in Washington with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Trump’s expected meeting with Romney amounts to an olive branch of sorts to one of his sharpest critics. Romney, who in a speech in March called Trump “a phony, a fraud,” urged Republicans to vote for anyone but the New York real estate magnate while the party was picking its presidential nominee.

Trump, in turn, used harsh rhetoric at times during his campaign to dismiss Romney as a failure who blew a chance in 2012 to defeat Democratic President Barack Obama, whom Trump felt was a w上海夜网eak opponent.

The source told that a broad discussion was expected during the meeting and that discussion about the secretary of state position was possible. The source had said earlier his understanding was that the meeting would occur on Sunday.

Asked about the meeting, Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested it was still being arranged. “We’re working on it,” she said.

‘TRUMP WILL MAKE DECISION’

“I think it’s good that the president-elect is meeting with people like Mr. Romney,” U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, one of Trump’s closest confidants and a potential nominee for defense secretary, told reporters at Manhattan’s Trump Tower.

Sessions sounded far from certain Romney would be offered a job.

“There are a lot of talented people that he (Trump) needs good relationships with. And I think Mr. Romney would be quite capable of doing a number of things. But he will be one of those, I am sure, that’s reviewed. Donald Trump will make that decision,” Sessions said.

When Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, opted out of running for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, people close to him suggested that serving as secretary of state might be appealing to him if a Republican won the presidency.

A steady stream of potential Trump administration hires made their way through the lobby of Trump Tower to meet with either Trump or officials close to him.

All indicated a willingness to serve, such as Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican who is chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee. He is a potential treasury secretary in the Trump administration.

“I stand ready to help the president in any capacity possible. I’ve got a great position in public policy today, if he wants to talk to me obviously, about serving somewhere else, we’ll look at serving somewhere else,” he told reporters.

FOREX-Euro poised for 2nd week of gains as China-U.S. trade talks eyed

* Graphic: World FX rates in 2019 tmsnrt.rs/2egbfVh

By Saikat Chatterjee

LONDON, May 10 ( ) – The euro edged higher on Friday and is poised for a second consecutive week of gains on growing fears that any escalation in the trade conflict between the United States and China would force U.S. policymakers to cut interest rates.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariff increase to 25% from 10% on $200 billion of Chinese goods kicked in on Friday, and Beijing said it would strike back. The two sides are pursuing last-ditch talks to try to salvage a trade deal.

While U.S. and Chinese 上海夜生活论坛officials return to the negotiating table later on Friday, investors have quietly ratcheted up bets of a U.S. interest rate cut with markets now roughly expecting one rate hike by the end of 2019.

Athanasios Vamvakidis, an FX strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said if China retaliated then the threat of a global trade war will affect the outlook of the U.S. economy and increase the chances of a Fed rate cut.

“In this case, the Fed has more room to ease than most other central banks, suggesting eventually a weaker dollar against both the euro and the yen,” he said.

The single currency edged 0.1% higher to $1.1220 on Friday and was on track for a second consecutive week of gains.

Broadly, risk appetite was muted though some of the higher-yielding currencies such as the Australian dollar which was heavily sold earlier this week when Trump unexpectedly ratcheted up trade tensions, gained.

The dollar index measuring the U.S. currency against a basket of six major currencies, of which the euro is a main component, was slightly firmer at 97.43.

Still, trade tensions have had broadly little impact on foreign exchange markets with typical perceived safe-haven assets such as the Japanese yen only gaining 1.2% this week while broader currency market volatility gauges were subdued despite a minor bounce this week.

Elsewhere, the pound held around the $1.30 level after sustaining some losses this week before first quarter British GDP data where expectations are for a 0.5% expansion compared with 0.3% growth in the previous quarter.

Ronaldo unsettled

The world class superstar is growing increasingly frustrated with his wage and performances

Real Madrid icon, Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly unsettled with his current situation at Real Madrid, according to ESPN.

The 33-year-old has been under a spell of poor form, as of late. Cristiano’s frustration on the pitch grows with each lackluster performance, and one can only wonder how long this stint will last.

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most accomplished footballers of all time, with; five Ballon d’Or’s, four Champion’s League trophies, two La Liga-titles, three Premier League-titles, to note a small fraction of Cristiano’s success.Top 5 Real Madrid players who are succeeding on a loan Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – We need to talk about the Top 5 Real Madrid players who are currently succeeding away from the club and are currently on a…

It is reported that Cristiano Ronaldo feels hard done by, regarding his wage. Under agent Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo will be aware of the ever-growing list of players worldwide, that earn more than he does. He has reportedly contacted 上海夜生活网Real Madrid regarding a pay rise since May, only seven months after signing a new contract with Real Madrid.

Ronaldo’s newly signed contract keeps him at Los Blancos until 2021.

Guardiola spoke about his commitment to City

Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City coach, is said to be enjoying his life in Manchester pretty well as, according to reports, he bought an apartment in the city earlier this year – and he insisted that he has been always fully committed to the club.

The Spaniard is said to be very happy at the club and he is about to stay beyond the three-year deal th上海夜生活论坛at he signed at the beginning of his reign at Manchester City. To be said, he has been very successful with his side this season so far as he is at the top of the table and managed to guide his team to the knockout stage of the Champions League.

The former Barcelona coach spoke about his commitment as he said, according to ESPN: “The commitment was the same as last season when I didn’t win. It looks like a commitment because we won, but last season it was the same. I think nothing changes — whether I buy an apartment or rent an apartment, it won’t affect the way I work or try to lead my profession. It’s good that I bought an apartment because I have to live in someplace. I’m happy to live in the city, it happened the same when I lived in Rome at Brescia and in Munich, I preferred to live in the city and be with the people.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He also made a comment on his team’s injured players: “Vincent is not as bad as we thought. He will be ready for the next fixtures. We will know exactly tomorrow, but it is not a big issue. Fabian was not fit but he is much better now. Yesterday, he didn’t train but the players are off today. We will see. Fabian is a similar case to Vincent — he knows his body.”

In the end, Pep Guardiola insisted that John Stones is also doing well: “John Stones is also much better. Yesterday he made first complete training session, but he is not ready for 90 minutes. I think he will be fit for the next game which is huge news for us. Silva — we will see in the next days.”

Shearer certain Kane can score anywhere

The England international broke a Premier League record as Spurs won 5-2 against Southampton on Boxing Day.

Alan Shearer believes that Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has what it takes to perform for a time like Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Kane scored a hat-trick on Tueday against the Saints, taking his record to 39 Premier League goals in 2017 and surpassing Alan Shearer’s record.

Kane’s consistent output of solid performance has seen him linked with a number of European giants and Shearer believes that the interest from other clubs might prove a big problem for Spurs, especially if Kane seeks to win trophies.

“Not only has he beaten my calendar-year record in the Premier League, but with his second successive hat-trick he eclipsed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for goals in all competitions in 2017 for club and country,” Shearer wrote in The Sun .Berbatov: It’s not the right time for Pochettino to move George Patchias – Dimitar Berbatov doesn’t think it’s t上海夜生活论坛he right time for Mauricio Pochettino to leave Tottenham Hotspurs or for him to join the likes of Madrid…

“The club will not want to move into their brand new stadium without their biggest star. ‘One of our own’ as the Spurs faithful chant.

“But things have stalled a bit on the pitch after title tilts in the last two seasons, although they have been impressive in the Champions League.”

Meanwhile Kane is on the right track of securing a third consecutive Premier League Golden boot, an achievement only done by Shearer(1994-97) and Thierry Henry(2003-06).

Preview: FK Crvena Zvezda – FC Koln

The battle for second place behind already qualified Arsenal in Europa League (EL) Group F is an interesting one. Crvena Zvevda are on the same points as Cologne but sit one place above them due to their 1-0 win in Cologne on matchday two. A win for either side would take them automatically through, while a draw could let in fourth-placed BATE who visit Arsenal in a must-win game for the Belarusians.

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Cologne’s last two games in the EL – victories over Arsenal and BATE – have at least provided some respite to an awful campaign in the Bundesliga where they have lost 11 and drawn three of their 14 games and not surprisingly find themselves propping up the table. Despite a decent 2-2 draw at Schalke at the weekend, Cologne coach Peter Stoger was given his official marching orders on Sunday and was replaced by U-19 coach Stefan Ruthenbeck as interim boss.

This will be Ruthenback’s first game in charge and during the pre-match presser he had this to say about the task ahead: “We want to be the active team. We know we can’t win here 上海夜生活being passive,” before adding: “Our players are motivated. They know what awaits them.”

Getting anything at the Rajko Mitic Stadium will not be an easy task, however. Crvena Zvevda, or Red Star Belgrade as they are more commonly known in the West, are unbeaten in ten home matches in the Serbian league and have a good record against German sides at their stadium – winning nine, drawing four and losing just two of the 13 games played. On top of this, Crvena Zvevda have a 12th man in their fanatical home support and have not conceded more than one goal in any of their last seven home European games.Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

Furthermore, a win for Cologne would be the first time any side has lost their first three EL games and still progressed through to the knockout stages – some achievement for the club in its current plight in its first European campaign in 20 years.

FC Koln: L. Bittencourt (groin injury), J. Cordoba (thigh injury), J. Hector (ankle injury), D. Heintz (thigh injury), M. Hoger (muscle injury), M. Risse (knee injury), S. Zoller (thigh injury), Y.A. Bisseck (doubtful), D. Maroh (doubtful), J. Mere (doubtful), J. Queiros (doubtful).

Coutinho doesn’t know where he’ll play

Philippe Coutinho admitted that he still doesn’t know where his future lies and he is unsure whether he will remain with Liverpool as Barcelona were trying to bring him desperately.

He handed a transfer request at the end of the summer transfer window but the Reds didn’t allow him to go – and despite being forced to stay, he has been in a really good shape lately and he was given a chance to wear a captain armband in his side’s latest match against Spartak Moscow. To be added, the Brazilian scored a hattrick in that game and he showed that he is still a very valuable player at Anfield.

The former Inter Milan player spoke about his future as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I am at Liverpool and I always do my best when I have the opportunity to play, respecting the jersey and the supporters. I do not know how the future is going to be. What will happen in January, we will know it in January. I do not know if there will be an offer.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Re上海夜生活网al Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He continued by adding that he was interested in moving to Barca: “Last summer there was a job offer in the same way that happens with any employee and I was interested in it. Since I stayed I have played with will and desire. Of course, a lot happened in the summer but my will is always to play and do the best wherever I am – that has not changed. I am here (at Liverpool), we have a lot of games and I try to do my best to help.”

In the end, Philippe Coutinho spoke about the last match and a remarkable 7-0 win: “It was a special night due to the result and because I had the armband in such an important game playing for a club like Liverpool. For sure this is my most important hat-trick. In the Champions League it was my first one, I scored one for Brazil but this was more important.”

Arthur: No deal with Barcelona

Gremio midfielder Arthur claimed he has signed no deal with FC Barcelona, despite meeting the Catalan side

The 21-year-old prospect says that “first contact” has been made with Ernesto Valverde’s men but him signing a contract is still far away, despite speculations of a potential transfer move in January.

Arthur has been heavily linked with a transfer to the La Liga giants, especially after the midfielder was spotted wearing a Barca shirt last week. That was enough to get speculators going.

After that incident, many suggested that a deal had already been completed between Gremio a上海夜生活nd Barcelona, yet the 21-year-old midfielder has denied that is the case.

“On the Barcelona issue, they really talked to me. We had a meeting, but I want to clarify that we have nothing agreed or defined,” Arthur told Esporte Interativo.Opinion: FC Barcelona needed to end the internal war Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – After a victory at Camp Nou, we believe that FC Barcelona did well by ending the internal war between players and the board ASAP.Those…

“It’s a club that I admire a lot. It was only first contact for them to get to know me and my family, and for me to meet them, let’s take it easy. There is nothing definite, but we did have a conversation.”

“I’m a Gremio player. My agent did not negotiate any contract. That did not happen. Any deal has to be good for me and good for the club, which is my home, where everything started. I arrived with 14 years, I am a Gremio fan at heart, my blood is blue,” he added.

The midfielder was named as the outstanding player in the Copa Libertadores final, which many suggest could be a sign of him getting interest from more big European clubs.

Despite the interest of other club giants, such as Manchester United, Barcelona reportedly went on to submit a €35 million bid for the youngster, but the Brazilian club have refused the amount. They probably know some clubs will pay even more for the youngster’s signature.

Guardiola: “De Bruyne capable of anything”

Pep Guardiola is certain that Kevin De Bruyne is one of the world’s best creative midfielders also because of the fact that he is able to perform on a high level even in the most important matches of the season.

The Spanish coach relies on his Belgian key player ahead of the upcoming derby match against Manchester United and he claimed that De Bruyne can do “absolutely everything” on the pitch and he is certain that he can prove it once again. Guardiola’s side can be 11 points clear if they will manage to win this match and the title would be arguably over 上海夜生活at that point.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach spoke about the abilities of De Bruyne as he said, according to Sky Sports: “He can do everything on the pitch. And, in terms of mentality as well, he never hides. The big players you realise in the bad moments, the bad moments in terms of 75 minutes, we are losing, how you react in that situation.”Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

He added that he is world-class also because he can show up in big moments: “With 4-0 everybody is a top-class player, the important time is when you are in the bad moments. I think he is world class because he can do absolutely everything.”

Guardiola also spoke about whether he will play Agüero or Gabriel Jesus as they both have been in a really good shape recently: “Maybe it is one of the toughest decisions because both are top, both deserve to play. I am so happy with both of them. When you play with two strikers, it is easy to take a decision. Gabriel is the best striker in the world in the high pressing. There is no one with the intensity and reading between the central defenders, attacking the holding midfielders from behind.”

Liverpool fans assaulted by police

Liverpool fans claimed they were assaulted by Seville police during Tuesday’s Champions League clash

According to GOAL, the Reds are to “establish the facts” following reports of “heavy-handed” treatment at the hands of police and stewards in Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Sevilla.

Some of the travelling fans were not allowed into the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, while others were assaulted by police, claimed supporters group Spirit of Shankly.

Jay Mckenna chairman of Spirit of Shankly released a statement, saying supporters were assaulted in the first-half of the game.

“We became aware of issues affecting supporters during the first half of the match,” Mckenna told ESPN.

“A couple of our committee members reported problems getting into the ground, being refused access as the 上海夜生活论坛flag they had [which featured a Liver bird and the word “defiance”] was accused of having a political message.”

The chairman added, some of the fans were heavily assaulted, even pushed and punched.Koulibaly warns about Genk danger Nedim Maric – The reliable Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly warned his team about Genk’s quality as he’s played for the Belgian side in the past.Napoli opened their…

“What is more concerning is the reports of heavy-handed treatment of supporters, including physical assaults, with one committee member reporting she was punched as she was pushed out of the ground.”

“Similar experiences have been shared with us from other supporters last night, and we’ve asked people to come forward so we can raise this issue with the club,” Mckenna explained.

“We’ve already flagged it up to them and we’re aware they are looking for more information.”

The chairman went on to say they will hold both clubs and UEFA accountable for what happened.

“Clearly, though, what happened last night isn’t acceptable and we will be asking both clubs and UEFA what they plan to do about it.”

Liverpool confirmed they are looking into the issue right away. “Following detailed and troubling accounts given by Liverpool supporters attending the match against Sevilla last night, the club is seeking to establish the facts regarding their treatment at the hands of the host stewards and local police force,” a club statement read.

“The safety and security of our supporters is our paramount concern and we intend to gather all the relevant information before responding further,” the Reds stated after their 3-3 draw against Sevilla.

Barcelona monitoring Leverkusen trio

Barcelona are looking for solutions to boost their squad options and they have put three Bayer Leverkusen players on their list.

Barcelona had a good start of the season, finding themselves at the top of La Liga table, five points clear of rivals Real Madrid. However, the Catalans are still looking for reinforcements, after a summer in 上海夜生活网which their transfer business was far from impressive.

Having lost Neymar to PSG for €222m, the Catalans spent the rest of the transfer window looking for worthy replacements. And although they have been linked with some very big names, they have only brought in Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund. Furthermore, the French forward got injured two weeks into the season and will be unavailable for the rest of the year.Pique sends a warning message to the board after Barcelona scrape the win against… Nedim Maric – The turmoil at the beginning of the season caused a lot of concerns at Barcelona.Shaky start of the season for Barca saw them get…

Although reports suggest that Barcelona have not given up at the thought of bringing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, the Catalans are also looking for alternatives. The Spanish newspaper Sport writes that Ernesto Valverde’s side are currently monitoring three Bayer Leverkusen players: Jonathan Tah, Julian Brandt and Leon Bailey.

Jonathan Tah is a 21-year-old centre back who has attracted a lot of interest lately, especially from Premier League clubs. Leon Bailey (20) and Julian Brandt (21) are both wingers that can play on any side of the attack. Brandt is a German international and has also attracted interest from major clubs, Bayern Munich monitoring his progress in Bundesliga.

The three Leverkusen players could prove to be a worthy alternative to Philippe Coutinho, as they will probably require around the same transfer fee expenditure, but would in turn provide much more options in the squad. Furthermore, all three of them are very young and have a lot of playing time ahead of them, as well as margins for further development.

Albrighton: Drinkwater can expect hostile reception

Marc Albrighton says his former team-mate could face 上海夜生活论坛a hostile reception this weekend if he were to play against Leicester.

Danny Drinkwater secured a €40m move from Leicester to Chelsea on transfer deadline day and he could make his debut for the Blues in the match against his former team. If the England International were to start for Chelsea in the weekend, Leicester will then face their title-winning central midfield couple: N’Golo Kante – Danny Drinkwater.

Kante moved to Chelsea immediately after winning the title with Leicester, at the end of the 2015/2016 season. One year later, he is followed by Drinkwater and the pair will now work together for Antonio Conte.

Speaking to SkySports, Leicester’s winger Marc Albrighton gave his opinion on the possibility of Drinkwater making his debut against his former team: “It will be strange for us, but it’ll be stranger for him. To play in front of the fans that he played for, for so many years, but once the whistle goes, it’s business as usual.Lampard challenges Hudson-Odoi to emulate Sterling Andrew Smyth – Frank Lampard wants Chelsea’s talented youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to follow in Raheem Sterling’s footsteps in becoming a star.

I’m sure he’ll be professional and do the best he can. He might get stick for 90 minutes, but barring that I’m sure the Leicester fans will be fantastic with him.

He’s achieved some tremendous things, that no one thought this club could achieve in this era, and he’s been a huge part of that, from getting them out of the Championship, to winning the Premier League, to Champions League football.”

Albrighton also spoke about how strong Chelsea’s new central midfield will be with his two former team-mates: “I think they’re certainly up there. Manchester United have got a strong midfield but with Drinkwater and N’Golo in there it’s going to take some stopping and there won’t be many that overrun that. They’re great individuals, but when they’re playing together, how they compliment each other is fantastic.”

Mati\u0107 expecting United to challenge for two big trophies

The Serbian is hoping his team will be a contender both for the Premier League and the Champions League.

Nemanja Matić has high hopes for the Red Devils this season. The £40 million summer signing is eyeing on the possibility of challenging for multiple titles following a magnificent start in the Premier League.

”But we all know that Manchester United are expected to win every game. As far as the Champions League is concerned, we’ve had a favourable draw and we are hopeful of still being in the competition in the latter stages.

”The 2-1 UEFA Supercup def上海夜生活论坛eat against Champions League holders Real Madrid was a good test of our credentials to slug it out with Europe’s best.

“We were outplayed but that was a one-off while the Champions League is a competition where you face different rivals in every round.”

If Manchester United can keep the form they have shown so far throughout the whole season then Matić and his team-mates are up for a wonderful season in the 2017-18 campaign.

UEFA will not investigate Manchester City

The Citizens will not be under UEFA Financial F上海夜生活论坛air Play investigation.

After the close-season reached its end, La Liga president Javier Tebas insisted that Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain “funding by state-aid distorts European competitions and creates an inflationary spiral that is irreparably harming the football industry”.

However, Guardiola’ side sold several players, which left their net spending at around 130 million pounds, which seems quite normal, taking into account the current situation of the transfer market.

The second half, as expected, saw a huge number of changes for both teams. Robert Lewandowski tried his luck just a minute after the whistle but unsuccessfully. Bayern Munich were clearly the more active side and they looked for a goal more than their Milan opponent.

Ten minutes after that, the Portuguese youngster Renato Sanches fired off a great ball from distance, as the ball awkwardly dipped down and hit the ground in front of Bayern’s goalkeeper as it went past the side cross bar.
