Testing players is being discussed with a view to completing the Liga season and thereby avoiding financial disaster, a source cose to La Liga told AFP on Thursday. Bale said he wanted to get back into action but felt it wise to wait and see.“Everyone wants to play football, but the most important thing is everyone stays safe, we don’t want to come back too early. We need to make sure everything is done safely so we avoid the second wave of this virus,” Bale told British broadcaster BT Sports.The Bundesliga in Germany, where there have been far fewer coronavirus deaths, said on Thursday they are “ready” to restart on May 9 but needed government approval.Rafael Ramos of the Spanish Association of Football Team Physicians said La Liga is planning to return to action in a series of stages.“The idea according to La Liga is to test everyone on April 28 and 29,” Ramos said on Spanish radio on Thursday.He added that the tests would be repeated every three or four days.La Liga president Javier Tebas said several alternatives for a return to action were being mulled with May 4 slated for the return to training.“The scenarios we are looking at could see La Liga restart as early as 28-29 May, but could also be 6-7 June or even as late as June 28,” Tebas said, calculating that the move could save Spanish clubs a billion euros in revenue if they complete La Liga and the European competitions.– Awaiting government approval –Whatever Tebas wants, Spain is under a severe lockdown quarantine and is reeling after 22,000 deaths from coronavirus in the country so far.The Spanish players union (AFE) agree with Welsh winger Bale in his call for prudence.Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets says he is more worried about team meetings and travel than training“Ask yourself if this is really a good idea. Is it safe? isn’t our main concern everybody’s safety?,” Diego Lopez the Espanyol goalkeeper said on Wednesday.Eight Espanyol players are sick with Covid-19.Barcelona and Spain midfielder Sergio Busquets was also sceptical on the proposed dates.“I suppose it’s workable, to train without getting too close to the other guys, showering at home, but meetings and travelling to a match would be difficult,” said Busquets.Others have been more defiant.Real Madrid’s Welsh forward Gareth Bale urges prudence before any return to football actionRead Also: Barcelona stars linked with Newcastle amid new owners“I’m hearing stuff about May 4 or May 11. No way will I be going back to training (then), nor will I play. I’ll tell you that straight right now,” said Rafael Jimenez, a central defender at Liga 2 leaders Cadiz.Athletic Bilbao player Ander Capa was more open to a return.“I’m optimistic, I believe we’ll get restarted and I hope by June we’ll all be playing again,” he told Radio Popular.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Real Madrid star Gareth Bale says there should be no rush to restart La Liga during the coronavirus lockdown as the Spanish football federation plans tests and a return to training.

Loading… There is said to be a growing belief that he will part way with the Blaugrana at the end of the season and his return to Los Verdiblancos could be welcomed by their players. As the report highlights, Setien said upon his appointment at Barcelona: “Four days before signing for Barça I was with a plane ticket in my hand to go somewhere else. Betis? No, I will not say anything now. Someday maybe I will. It seems that the stars lined up for me to be here. There are many, many, many things. When the time comes, I will say it.” Real Betis are considering a sensational move to reappoint their former boss Quique Setien, currently at Barcelona. FC Barcelona’s head coach Quique Setien The Seville-based club are currently without a permanent Coach following the sacking of Rubi just over a week ago, with sporting director Alexis Trujillo filling the position on an interim basis until the end of the season. Setien left his position at Betis after two seasons last summer and was appointed Barcelona boss in January to replace Ernesto Valverde. However, the Cantabrian’s position at the Camp Nou is under pressure – they are two points behind Real Madrid in the title race and the weekend’s draw at Celta Vigo has ramped up the pressure. A report this weekend in Marca claimed there was a heated argument in the dressing room between the coach and his players, suggesting that there is growing friction behind the scenes. However, a report in El Desmarque now suggests Betis vice-president José Miguel López Catalán is championing the idea of reappointing Setien as boss this summer.Advertisement Read Also: Barcelona, Juventus confirm Arthur, Pjanic swap deal However, there is also said to be resistance within the club to this idea of Setien returning – as he may yet remain in place at the Camp Nou and Betis cannot afford a long wait before appointing a successor to Rubi. Manuel Pellegrini, Marcelino Garcia Toral and Javi Gracia are said to be three names leading the Betis shortlist to replace Rubi while Mateu Alemany or Mario Husillos are among the names being considered to head-up a new-look sporting department at the club.

Australia will play its first league game against Afghanistan. Alex Carey is a part of Australia squad for World Cup 2019. Aaron Finch will lead the side in World Cup 2019. New Delhi: Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey is set to join Sussex for the T20 Blast after the conclusion of ICC World Cup, it was confirmed on Thursday (May 30). The tournament will start from July 18 and Sussex will play their first game on the next day against Hampshire.Carey said he’s excited to work with Jason Gillespie and is looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd. “I’m very excited to get the opportunity to play with Sussex,” he pointed out.”I played for East Grinstead in the Sussex Premier League a few years ago and now to play for the Sharks in the Blast is super exciting. I’ve heard the fans are the best in the country and I can’t wait to join Dizzy and the guys in July.” Carey has played 44 T20 games and has 918 runs to his name at a strike rate of 128.93 with one century. Gillespie, who is also a coach at Adelaide Strikers where Carey plays in the Big Bash League, stressed the batsman’s ability to adapt will hold him in good stead.”We’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to Alex and excited for him to be linking up with us,” he said “He’s been impressive opening the batting for the Strikers in the Big Bash and now he’s getting experience in the middle order with Australia.”He can certainly clear the ropes but he’s also able to read and adapt to different conditions. That versatility will give us options on how best to utilise his batting in this year’s Blast. Alex is also a world-class keeper so to have a player like him joining the Sharks is a real coup for the club. I know Alex well from the Adelaide Strikers and he knows Sussex well from his time playing league cricket in the county, so I’ve no doubt he’ll fit in nicely in our dressing room.” highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

“I was telling him that was my only championship,” World Peace told Los Angeles News Group. “I’m lucky for him to help me get one.”All the fanfare on Wednesday will center on Bryant’s last game here when the Lakers (5-27) visit the Boston Celtics (18-13) at the Garden. Meanwhile, World Peace has recently served on the team’s inactive roster. But he will be forever remembered for his Game 7 performance against Boston. He posted 20 points, had five steals and made a 3-pointer to give the Lakers a six-point lead with a minute remaining. “I don’t want to make it seem like I’m fully responsible,” World Peace said. “So many things had to happen.”The Lakers overcame a 13-point deficit in various ways. Derek Fisher hit a 3-pointer to tie the game midway through the fourth quarter. Pau Gasol posted 19 points and 18 rebounds. Sasha Vujacic clinched the win by making two free throws with 11.7 seconds left. Despite finishing 6 of 24 from the field, Bryant grabbed 15 rebounds and went 11 of 15 from the foul line. Bryant also nailed a 17-foot jumper to give the Lakers a 68-64 lead with 5:22 remaining.“That should be the headline: ‘Kobe led the game in rebounds in a Game 7,’” World Peace said. “It’s about how badly do you want it. Scoring is materialistic. What Kobe did showed courage.” World Peace also showed courage in Game 7. “I didn’t want to treat it like it was the biggest game of my life,” World Peace said. “I got here playing the game by keeping it the same way.”World Peace claimed a foggy memory on his heroic night entailed publicly thanking his psychologist.“I did my press conference, then I went to the club,” World Peace said. “That was it.”But World Peace still remembered his promise to Bryant following the Lakers’ Game 6 loss to Boston in the 2008 NBA Finals. Then with the Houston Rockets, World Peace entered the Lakers’ locker room while Bryant showered. “It was like shock. He was upset after he lost. So we talked for a minute and then I got the (heck) out of there,” World Peace said. “One day, I’d like to play with Kobe. He was one of my favorite players. He reminded me of (Michael) Jordan.”World Peace signed with the Lakers as a free agent in 2009. A season later, he granted Bryant’s wish for revenge on Boston. “If I lost that championship, I’d be miserable,” Bryant said. “I’d be absolutely miserable.” BOSTON >> The Lakers’ losing bothered Kobe Bryant. So did the presence of Clippers forward and former Celtic Paul Pierce. But Bryant’s frustration during the Lakers’ loss last week to the Clippers faded when he remembered the Lakers beat Boston in the 2010 NBA Finals for his fifth title. So, Bryant turned to Lakers forward Metta World Peace on the bench.“‘Metta, I’m so damn happy we won that 2010 Finals because I’d be sick as (hell) sitting here,’” Bryant recalled saying. World Peace felt the same way. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
