Reinier, in tears: “I will give my life for Real Madrid”

first_imgReinier Jesus was officially introduced as a new Real Madrid player. The Brazilian midfielder, who comes from Flamengo in exchange for 30 million euros fixed and another five for objectives, landed in Madrid last Saturday and had already had two portions of what awaits him in the white club: Sunday morning he saw from the gym the draw of his new teammates in Castilla against Rayo Majadahonda on Cerro del Espino; and at night he went to the Bernabéu for Madrid-Celta, which also finished 2-2.Reinier appeared at the Santiago Bernabéu Honor Box at 1:40 p.m., accompanied by his family: Susana and Mauro, their parents; and Julia, his sister. In the morning he was in Valdebebas training with Castilla, which was his first session with his new teammates. First, he took the floor, as he always does in the presentations of the new players, the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez. “This stadium is preparing tirelessly to face the future. Here have played players who have marked an era and many with the Real Madrid shirt. Just as we build now what we want to be the best stadium of the 21st century, we have the obligation to enhance the talent of the future. It is not easy to find that indisputable talent that can be part of the legend of Madrid. Our players conquered the Spanish Super Cup just a month ago and will continue to give it their all. Here nobody ever gives up, “the president began. “It is our obsession to look for players who can be the great figures of tomorrow. Today comes a player who has just turned 18, but has already been champion of the last Copa Libertadores with Flamengo, one of the great clubs in the world. Dear Reinier, you are already a member of Real Madrid, the one you always chose in video games. In a few minutes you will wear the Madrid shirt and step on the grass where many of your countrymen have played, which have contributed to Madrid being the club of the 13 European Cups. You have arrived here with humility and sacrifice. I have been told that your father put videos of Zidane, with the illusion that you played in Madrid one day. It has certainly helped you, but if you are here it is for your merits. You are one of the emerging stars of world football. Congratulations, today many of your soccer hopes are coming true. This shirt is impregnated with values: effort, demand, overcoming, humility, companionship and always, respect for the adversary. This is the shirt you have dreamed so much about. The great challenges of your life await you. Welcome to your new home, “concluded Florentino Pérez.Then, it was Reinier’s turn, who pronounced his first words as a Real Madrid player after his presentation, although he already granted AS an interview in which he declared “Real Madrid from the Galactic stage”. The Brazilian let loose speaking in Spanish, fluently: “Good afternoon everyone, it’s a very happy day for me. I fulfill a childhood dream. Thanks to my family who was always with me. We always talked about how amazing it would be to get here. I want to be part of the history of this great club. Go Madrid”. After the protocol ceremony at the Palco de Honor, Reinier went down to the locker room to dress for the first time with the clothing of Real Madrid and jump to the grass of the Santiago Bernabéu, in which he hopes to play in the not too distant future. At the moment its site is Castilla, as Madrid has covered the three extra-community places (Militao, Rodrygo and Vinicius); His mission will now be to convince Raul to enter the plans of the subsidiary’s technician. Precisely Raúl was present at the event, along with other veterans such as Solari or Arbeloa.Some 500 fans came to the stands of the Bernabéu to welcome you to the new white player.center_img In press conferenceAfter his presentation as a new Real Madrid player, Reinier attended the Press accompanied by Emilio Butragueño, director of Institutional Relations of the club. “Dear Reinier, today you start a new stage. Playing for Madrid is one of the biggest challenges a professional can face. Everyone who works in the club will do everything possible to make you and your family very happy in your new home. New successes await you, ”commented the Vulture. What feelings do you have?It is the realization of a dream, playing in Madrid was the dream of my father, my sister, my mother … I am very happy with this opportunity. It is the realization of a dream. Have you talked to Vinicius and Rodrygo? They are great players, yesterday I was at Vinicius’ house, he is my friend since Flamengo. I am very happy with the reception of all Brazilians, they are sure to help me a lot. I am prepared to seize the opportunities. Going from Flamengo to Castilla, in Second B, is not a somewhat strange jump? Flamengo is the largest team in South America. But I am happy, I have already trained with Castilla, they are great people, I have already met Raúl … He is one of my idols. I am very happy, surely tomorrow we will be very well together again and I will be ready for Sunday. What did Raul tell you? He welcomed me, I am very happy with our talk. He wished me luck, I’m sure I will do my best. As we say in my country, I will give my life for Madrid. Who do you feel like training more? Everyone with everyone. Being Madrid, surely they are the best. I am very happy with the opportunity. I really want to play. How was the time to know that Madrid loved you? I was happier than anyone to receive this news, my father called me. I was in the Club World Cup and did not know what to do. An inexplicable emotion, I started to cry, my roommate was also very happy. In Brazil we do not know well what Madrid is, it is something gigantic. It has always been my team. What do you say to the people of Flamengo, your exequipo? It is a very qualified team, with great players who have made history in Europe. I thank the coach very much, he has helped me and advised me to improve my football. I thank him and all the Flamengo. I am here to do my best. What memories do you have of Madrid? I’ve seen Cristiano Ronaldo a lot, I was little and my father showed me the videos. I was delighted with the videos. I’ve always wanted to get here. I am very grateful to my family, I am here thanks to them. What does Zidane direct you to do? He was a great player, an idol of Madrid. I will have as a mirror great players. My father played football and when he teaches me videos I try to make the most of my experience to improve in the field. This is a club with a lot of pressure … Madrid is the biggest club in the world, there is a lot of pressure, but as I said it is a dream that has come true. I’m sure I’m going bareback for my dream. Playing in Madrid is inexplicable, I am very happy with my opportunity. How do you define yourself? Here he is compared to Kaka … Kaka is an idol for me, he’s Brazilian and I’ve seen him play forever. I arrive at the area, I finish the plays, touching the ball a lot, one-two. I know that I will do my best. I thank Kaka, I shared a moment with him in which we talked a few things. But I sure have things to improve. He wished me luck, I knew that I am young and that I was working. I appreciate it, for me it has been an idol. He is a person that everyone praises. That he was by my side was very exciting. In which position does it look better? The game attack in all positions. Everything, inside and out. Where I am I will play. He has been excited about his parents during the presentation … Everything I lived in childhood crossed my mind, since I left home with my father, I arrived in Rio alone, without my mother, without my sister … (He gets excited, Butragueño asks for a few moments so he can calm down). When I talk about my family I get very excited because I am sure it was all thanks to them. I thank you, also those in Brazil, like my grandmother. Since I was a child they helped me achieve my dream. Have you talked to Zidane? Will you train with the first team? I’m a Madrid player, I haven’t talked to Zidane yet. But I am available to the club. This is a dream, since I was a child, I will do my best and the club will know what it wants to do. His father is very happy with his signing for Madrid … My father is my greatest hero, he deserves to be here living this with me. It has been the dream of all of us. Madrid is something different.last_img read more

76ers agree to trade Jahil Okafor, 2nd-round pick to Brooklyn

Booker, the 23rd overall pick of the 2010 draft by Washington, averaged 10.1 points with the Nets.“There is a level of toughness and versatility that interests me,” Brown said. “He’s shown that he can play, handle not play and be good people and handle himself like a pro.”Okafor gave the Sixers plenty of headaches in his rookie season out of Duke with his off-court conduct, which included his role in Boston street fight that earned him TMZ scrutiny and a two-game suspension.He was widely mocked last year for a lackadaisical defensive effort where he stood still and failed to contest shots in a game against Miami.“I think like anybody that comes into our organization, we need to defend the basketball,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “I think that will be a challenge for both of them.

Accused of tanking, the Sixers went 18-64 in 2014-15 and earned the No. 3 pick. They landed a flop instead of a future star. Okafor not only dropped behind Embiid on the depth chart, but this year was demoted behind Richaun Holmes and Amir Johnson.“It’s not easy to take a guy that was drafted third in the draft, after all the pain and strife that this organization and fan base went through, to just move away,” Colangelo said.Colangelo had no ties to Okafor and there was no secret of his desire to move him. Okafor played in 105 games (81 starts) with the Sixers and averaged 14.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 26.2 minutes while shooting 51.0 percent from the field“I wouldn’t say there’s regrets. I’d say there’s human disappointment,” Brown said. “We went through a lot together while he was here.”The Nets also requested waivers on guard Sean Kilpatrick. Atkinson said he was ready to help the two former first-rounders find success with the rebuilding Nets.“I think they’re coming into a strong locker room,” Atkinson said.“This trade provides us with a good opportunity to bring in two young players who were high picks in recent drafts and give them a chance to succeed in our system,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said.Booker was ready for a fresh start in Philly.“It’s been real Brooklyn .

Aubameyang denies Man Utd morale-boosting win

first_img0Shares0000Saka pounced on a loose pass deep inside the United half and fed Aubameyang, who had been flagged offside, before dinking the ball past De Gea.MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Sep 30 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half strike, awarded by VAR, denied Manchester United a much-needed win to kickstart their season as Arsenal emerged from Old Trafford with a 1-1 draw on Monday.Scott McTominay’s stunning strike to give United the lead was a rare moment of quality in a poor first-half. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could not hold out for all three points as Aubameyang’s goal just before the hour mark was allowed to stand despite the Gabon international being initially flagged offside.United have now won just two of their last 12 Premier League games dating back to last season and sit 12 points adrift of leaders Liverpool just seven games into the campaign.A point is enough to edge Arsenal back into the top four on goal difference and maintain their three-point advantage over United, who move up to 10th.For many years the clashes between these sides were the Premier League’s marquee fixtures. United and Arsenal were the champions of England for nine consecutive seasons between 1996 and 2004.However, the fact the were facing off a Monday night because neither are in Champions League action later this week was reflected in a first 45 minutes devoid of quality.It took 28 minutes for either goalkeeper to be tested as Arsenal’s Bernd Leno saved well low to his left to deny Andreas Pereira after a solo run.United have not scored more than one goal in any match since the opening day of the season and, even against an Arsenal defence that had conceded nine goals in their last four league games, looked toothless when not afforded space to counter-attack into.Arsenal, though, played right into the hosts hands in the final five minutes of the first-half.Firstly, Marcus Rashford wasted a huge chance when played in behind by Paul Pogba’s through ball with the Gunners furiously protesting for a free-kick against the Frenchman as he dispossessed Matteo Guendouzi.Arsenal then had the chance to strike on the counter-attack themselves as from a United corner the visitors burst forward through Bukayo Saka and after his effort was palmed away by David de Gea, the Spaniard got back in position to block Guendouzi’s follow-up effort.But from the resulting corner, it was United who took the lead.Daniel James led the counter from one end of the field to the other and after his cross just evaded Rashford, the England international cut the ball back to the edge of the box where McTominay smashed into the top corner.That was the first goal United had scored a goal from open play at home in the first-half this season.But they soon needed a second as Arsenal struck back after the break thanks to VAR.Saka pounced on a loose pass deep inside the United half and fed Aubameyang, who had been flagged offside, before dinking the ball past De Gea.However, replays showed he was clearly played onside by Harry Maguire and his eighth goal of the season was allowed to stand.Seconds later, Unai Emery’s men were unlucky not to be in front when Saka’s shot from Callum Chambers’s cross was deflected just over by Victor Lindelof.Attack looked like the best form of defence for Arsenal as their backline never looked comfortable at holding out for a point.Pogba fired inches wide from the edge of the area before McTominay somehow didn’t score his second of the night with a free header six yards out from a corner.Leno produced a fine save to turn a piledriver from Maguire over as the world’s most expensive defender tried to atone for his earlier error.But the German goalkeeper’s best save of the evening came at the death as he flew to his left to turn Rashford’s powerful free-kick to safety.0Shares0000(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Tearful plaintiff testifies of abuse

first_img Jurors sat impassively as the testimony became prolonged, few of them taking notes. Jayson said the abuse occurred after Wempe returned from therapy at a monastery in New Mexico where he had been treated for inappropriate behavior with boys without specific evidence of molestation. The archdiocese later assigned him to be the Catholic chaplain at the Jewish Cedars-Sinai hospital. The former priest calmly took notes in court as Jayson testified. His behavior was markedly different from last week when the jury heard from a series of seven men Wempe has admitted abusing. When they told their stories, the priest wept. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Wempe has admitted molesting 13 other boys in the 1970s and ’80s, including Jayson’s two brothers, but cannot be tried in those cases because the statute of limitations has expired. He has denied molesting Jayson B, however, and his lawyers say the man fabricated the charges in an effort to seek vengeance for his brothers. Jayson came forward three months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law allowing the statute of limitations to be extended in sex-crimes cases involving children. Wempe, 66, is the first priest from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to be tried on new charges after being freed by the 2003 Supreme Court ruling. As Deputy District Attorney Todd Hicks sought intimate details about the alleged assaults, Jayson covered his face and sobbed. Before every answer, he took long gulps of air and covered his eyes with his hand. “I don’t like talking about this,” he said. “I didn’t want anyone to know about this and now I’m talking about it in front of all these people.” A man who claims he was sexually abused by a priest in the 1990s cried for most of three hours on the witness stand Monday, declaring at one point, “I didn’t want anyone to know about this.” The 26-year-old witness, identified as Jayson B., described five instances of sexual abuse he said Michael Wempe subjected him to. He said they took place about a year apart, once at Wempe’s office at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and other times in parking garages in Wempe’s car. He said he didn’t tell anyone what had happened, adding that Wempe’s long-standing relationship with his family made him a figure of trust. “It was Father Mike. It was difficult to think anything he could do was wrong,” he testified during his second day on the witness stand. last_img read more

first_imgA judge has said it was wrong to grant bail to a man who has terrorised his ex-partner after being released by the courts.Former county councillor Gareth ReidFormer Donegal County Councillor Gareth Reid appeared in court yesterday as part of long-running court battle. Reid, of Lawndale, Ballybofey, has broken a barring order against his ex-partner on numerous occasions despite being warned to stay away from her.His case was adjourned to yesterday at Letterkenny District Court for a probation report.A previous sitting of the court heard how Reid warned his ex-partner he would ‘put a bullet between her eyes’ after they had a row.Judge Paul Kelly said he was gravely concerned at the content in the probation report.He said Reid was blaming others instead of taking responsibility for his actions and also has serious questions about his attitude.“I’m concerned about his behaviour and he really needs to address the concerns the court has,” said Judge Kelly.The court was told Reid currently signs on at his local Garda station three times a week but this was reduced to just one signing.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said his client had also surrendered his passport and was requesting it back so he could attend a friend’s stag party in the UK.Judge Kelly granted the application and said he could have the passport from today but must return it on July 21st.He adjourned the case until January next year.JUDGE SAYS IT WAS WRONG TO GRANT BAIL TO FORMER COUNTY COUNCILLOR was last modified: July 18th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:county councillordonegalGareth ReidJudge Paul Kellylast_img read more

Philosophies to be put to test

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Whatever the circumstances of Tracy’s and the Dodgers’ agreeing to part ways over the proverbial “philosophical differences,” however much you think the time for this had come, Monday’s development is the darkest sign yet of the franchise’s recent dysfunction. Call it a parting shot, maybe, when Tracy told reporters one of the reasons he couldn’t envision managing the final year of a contract that was to have run through 2006. “I think anything is fixable,” Tracy said of the team, tossed by changes and torn by injuries, that finished 2005 in fourth place with a 71-91 record. “Can it be done overnight? Can it be done in one season? I don’t know if the answer to that is yes.” Tracy’s agreed-to departure could be seen coming since he was given such a short and low-budget contract extension last winter. The best recent clue came last week, when DePodesta was quoted saying he faced a tough decision on whether to grant Tracy his wish for a contract extension. Hard to imagine the Dodgers then calling a news conference to slap Tracy on the back and say, “It was a tough decision. Now go get ’em next season.” So they set up a telephone conference call Monday evening so that first DePodesta and then Tracy could give their versions of events. A good manager is out. That’s Jim Tracy, who won 90 games with the Dodgers twice, who got the club its first playoff victory since the ’80s, who as of midsummer had a better lifetime record than the World Series manager down the interstate. An unproven (the polite adjective) general manager is in deeper than ever. That’s Paul DePodesta, who tore up last year’s division-winning Dodgers roster with so-far painful results. center_img On this, at least, it seems they agree: These two smart and likable men couldn’t get in step on some pretty important matters, such as which players to put in uniform and in the lineup. As Tracy said, pointedly enough, time will tell “if the philosophy in place is correct.” Did Tracy’s refusal to bend to DePodesta’s plan stand in the way of better results for the GM hired before the 2004 season? Did DePodesta’s refusal to give Tracy the players he wanted cramp the style of the manager who arrived as “Jim Who?” to replace Davey Johnson in the winter before 2001? Whatever, the immediate result is that one part of the Dodgers that was respected around the baseball world – Tracy – is gone. One part that has a lot to prove – DePodesta – now holds the future of Frank McCourt’s team entirely in his young hands. DePodesta said he didn’t fire Tracy. He said he didn’t blame Tracy for the Dodgers’ terrible season. “These differences exist whether we won 71 games or 95,” DePodesta said, going on to call Tracy “a terrific manager.” But apparently DePodesta is confident he knows better than that terrific manager. We’ll see. Tracy was immensely well-prepared, always grinding to plug imperfect players into spots where they could succeed. He made Jolbert Cabrera a contributor, made Alex Cora a local star, made Eric Gagne a closer and watched him win the Cy Young Award. He couldn’t do as much with Hee-Seop Choi as DePodesta hoped. That will be the task for the next man to sit in Tommy Lasorda’s office. Tracy has earned the chance to do it his way somewhere else, and he’s pretty certain to get it soon. DePodesta is still trying to show that his way works. I suppose the test is who wins the pennant first, Tracy’s next club or the Dodgers. Your guess?
