Setién: “I see myself walking with the Champions among cows”

first_imgFrom the state of confinement arises the most dreamlike Setien. In a telematic interview granted to TV3, the first to be given this Wednesday, he imagines himself winning the Champions League and celebrating it through the Liencres pastures: “I tell the players. I’m in a hurry, I don’t have time to lose and I would like to win the Champions League and LaLiga. If it can be both, the better. Of course I have dreamed of walking around Liencres with the cows with the Champions League and showing it to them “.Setién, with a contract until 2021 extendable until 2022, is confident in fulfilling his commitment to Barça. And more: “I have signed a year and a half fixed, another conditioned and I hope to meet it and renew.” And he maintains that he does not want to be a champion without playing. What it wants to be on the grass: “What I would like to do is play and be champion by playing; that is obvious. But the situation is as it is. I do not know if that would be worth (finish LaLiga as it is) but it is indifferent to me. I will not feel champion if I have two points more. But all this football is anecdotal. This is a difficult situation and what worries me is that this is resolved as soon as possible. May we go out and hug the older people. The rest is superfluous and I don’t give it too much importance. If it has to end, then it ends. And if we play, great. “last_img read more

Hinds defends WIPA, WICB deal

first_imgWavell Hinds, president of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA), has described as surprising, claims by West Indies Twenty20 captain, Darren Sammy, that the organisation has not represented their best interest as it relates to contracts for ICC Twenty20 World Cup in India next month.Sammy, in a recent letter to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), claimed that a reduction in payments for players to participate in the tournament, has ran contrary to their expectations, and, as a result, members squad, are seeking a renegotiation.However, Hinds, whose entity has been at loggerheads with several of its senior playing members, especially since their aborted tour of India in October 2014, has defended negotiated contracts between WIPA and the WICB, saying that what has been arrived at represents the “best interest” of all players in the region.”I am surprised that they (World Twenty20 squad players) are behaving this way, as the information (based on new payments) would have been disseminated to them nine months ago,” stated Hinds.”I was present at all the meetings, and Darren Sammy was not, so I think he is speaking on information he has gotten.”[However], as far as I am concerned the team that I lead, and the executive that I lead, and the members of the (WIPA) negotiating team, did all the best that they could to get the best.”He continued: “This was not just for a selected group of players, but for all the players of the region, including first-class players.”Currently serving his fourth year as president, Hinds explained that the contracts were negotiated based on new payment conditions stipulated by the WICB, as a result of changes at the International Cricket Council (ICC) level.This, he continued, has subsequently resulted in players being offered less money as compared to the Twenty20 World Cup in 2012.LESS MONEY”In February 2014, the International Cricket Council (ICC) agreed to have a new payment scale for its members, and this took effect January 2016,” said Hinds.”The new (players’) remuneration package is therefore based on current commercial revenues available to the WICB, and not that of commercial revenue that obtained in 2012 when the West Indies won the tournament.”There is no specific fees for Twenty20 World Cups anymore. Its ICC Events payments,” he stressed.Hinds also expressed that the disbursement of monies from the ICC has also change with payments now being collectively issued twice per year over a new four- and eight-year period, in comparison, to it’s prior one-off payment regimes.Hinds, in further explaining the new payment structure, also said that player match fees for Twenty20 World Cup has been increased from US$1,750 to US$6,900.This is in addition to an incentive 80 per cent of prize money won, and 50 per cent of sponsorship fees, should there be any.last_img read more


Windies preparation taking shape – Ambrose

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC):Bowling consultant Sir Curtly Ambrose says that the preparation camp here over the last two weeks has allowed West Indies to fine-tune their game as they take aim at the Twenty20 World Cup starting next week.The Caribbean side has been training here and has also played three unofficial warm-up T20 games to gain match practice ahead of the March 8 to April 3 ICC event in India.Sir Curtly said that he saw improvement in the two opening games against Zimbabwe last week and in yesterday’s contest against English County Warwickshire, which West Indies won by 11 runs at the Dubai International Stadium.”I think the bowling is really coming together. We have had a couple of good games so far, and there’s room for improvement, obviously, but I am quite satisfied at the moment with the way the guys are bowling,” Sir Curtly said following the game.PLAN GOING WELLHe added: “As a bowling unit, we are working with a plan and, so far, the plan has gone well and I’m just hoping by the time we get to India, everything will just come together where we can do well in this tournament.”He said Windies batting had also performed well on tour and pointed to the depth as the key to its success.Pointing to the opening game against Zimbabwe and yesterday’s game against Warwickshire, the former West Indies paceman said that the Caribbean side showed it possessed quality batting all the way through the order.”The good thing about this team is that we have depth in our batting. We are a team that doesn’t rely on one or two players. We have depth, and that is going to be key,” he stressed.”When we lose early wickets, guys in the middle and lower order can still come in and get us to a good total, so that, to me, is the strength in our batting so at the moment, I am quite comfortable with both bat and ball.”The fielding has been good, but we still can improve, so generally, I am quite satisfied.”last_img read more


Samuels signs rich deal with Spanish basketball club

first_img LONG TERM GOAL RAISING HIS GAME Jamaican basketball centre Samardo Samuels has signed a multi-million-dollar two-year deal with top Spanish professional basketball club Barcelona. The contract signed two weeks ago with the two-time Euro League champions is valued at approximately US$2.6 million. It was the most valuable contract signed by the former Cleveland Cavalier, whose previous best contract was valued at US$1 million. The 26-year-old Samuels played three seasons with the Cavaliers. After being released by the Cavaliers in 2013, the 6-foot nine centre played two months in Israel with Happoel Jerusalem before joining Dinamo Milano in the Italian League. With Samuels on the roster Milano won the Italian League title in 2014. Milano were dethroned this past season losing in seven games in the semi-finals to eventual champions Dinamo Sassari. The former Louisville Cardinal explained that getting into the Spanish League and playing for a top club will help him raise his value as a player and could eventually pave a path back to the NBA as a starter. “This is great. I get to go over and play with one of the best basketball teams in Europe, playing against the best players and improving my game,” Samuels told The Gleaner. Samuels’ mentor Ajani Williams, the immediate past president of the Jamaica Basketball Association, praised the deal with Barcelona saying it will also help the player’s longer term goals. “This deal will further underwrite his long term goals of putting away money for retirement, and I think he has a chance to further increase his value. I also still think he has a good shot at the NBA if he wants it. But right now the math has him earning more in Europe than the NBA today,” Williams said. The first order of business, though, is winning championships at Barcelona. “When I win titles, the people in the NBA can appreciate my talent and give me the opportunity I deserve,” said Samuels, who played off the bench during his short stay in the NBA. He was full of praise for his former club Milano, which he said helped him raise his game and earned him this contract with Barcelona. “If I didn’t go to the Italian League I wouldn’t be here having this conversation,” said Samuels who is visiting Jamaica so he can obtain a Spanish visa. He reports to training camp on August 27.last_img read more

first_imgChampion trainer Wayne DaCosta and champion jockey Omar Walker teamed up for three winners at Caymanas Park yesterday, including 9-5 favourite LOTTERY TICKET in the Howard Phillipps Memorial Trophy over 1100 metres, the day’s feature.The fair-size crowd, which included former West Indies fast-bowling great Michael Holding and former England cricket captain Michael Atherton, saw the DaCosta-trained 1-9 favourite, RADICAL, and 3-5 favourite LOOSE CANNON also providing Walker with runaway wins.LOTTERY TICKET, however, had no such luxury, as the four-year-old filly by Seeking The Glory out of Just A Flutter had to be hard driven to catch and beat the free-runnng ZEPHYR (12-1) by half a length in the good time of 1:06.2. The race was contested by 11 starters, including the fleet-footed LUNAR ROCKET (5-2), who disputed the lead with ZEPHYR into the straight, but weakened out of the frame in the latter stages.MARLENE MY LOVEMeanwhile, the lightly-raced but highly thought of three-year-old filly, MARLENE MY LOVE, notched her second win from as many starts in the restricted allowance mile contested by eight three-year-olds.Ridden by former champion jockey Wesley Henry for trainer Dwight Chen and popular owner Howard Hamilton, MARLENE MY LOVE (named for the owner’s wife) tracked long-time leader WESTERN WARRIOR (19-1) into the straight before going by a furlong out to beat him by 31/2 lengths in the good time of 1:39.3.Unraced as a two-year-old, the bay filly by Adore The Gold out of Miss Chestnut, a half sister to two-time Horse of the Year Mark My Word, showed enough class to prompt her owner to say: “I believe she will develop into a live classic contender … . She has the pedigree and a style of running conducive to middle and longer distances.”MARLENE BY LOVE was bred by HAM Stables Limited.last_img read more


JFF Technical Centre gets FIFA nod

first_imgFIFA Member Association Service Director Theodore Giannikos is satisfied with the progress made at the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Technical Centre, after yesterday assessing the construction of a 24-room dormitory building at the University of the West Indies (UWI) – based facility. The first phase of the project was completed at a cost of US$480,000 ($61 million) and the second and final phase is expected to start this month end, costing US$620,000 (J$78.7 million). It is projected to be finished in six months. “I am impressed. I think it is a good step towards the development of football in the country,” Giannikos told The Gleaner. “This is creative work, very important help to football. The federation will have a very good base to build from (when the building is completed) to help young footballers develop,” he also added. JFF’s general secretary Raymond Grant says the second phase of the project was sent to FIFA for approval. “The second phase is before FIFA for approval by March 28. If approved a contract should be signed between FIFA and YP Seaton (local contractors for the project),” Grant said. “The good thing is that FIFA is satisfied with the plan, so work is expected to start later this month,” the general secretary said. According to JFF president Captain Horace Burrell it is long time coming but worth the wait. “I’m extremely happy that phase one of the project is completed. The project has taken a long time but the vision is for the future. It will benefit generations to come. A lot has gone into the project. It is about the development of our football. Christopher Shaw, project consultant explained that the three storey building will consist of 24 fully furnished double occupancy rooms, a lobby, manager’s office, patio, canteen, technical area, library, cold storage and meeting area.
