Lawyer says Blatter did not speak to U.S, investigators

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) – Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has not spoken to United States prosecutors in Switzerland, his U.S.-based lawyer told Reuters yesterday.Blatter told international news agency reporters last month that he had met lawyers from the U.S. Department of Justice in Zurich last October or November.Yet his lawyer Richard Cullen said that Blatter may have mistaken American lawyers who were conducting an internal investigation on behalf of FIFA for officials from the Department of Justice.Prosecutors from the Department of Justice did not interview Mr Blatter in Switzerland,” Cullen said by telephone.“He may have mistaken an interview that he gave to American lawyers who were conducting an investigation on behalf of FIFA.“Those lawyers were in fact not prosecutors from the Department of Justice.”At the time when he made his comments to agency reporters last month, Blatter had also said: “I have had very little contact from my American lawyers because I was never a person of interest under scrutiny by the American justice.“I have been investigated in two or three matters … but there is no wrongdoing.”The 81-year-old was banned for six years by FIFA’s own ethics committee at the height of a scandal engulfing world soccer’s governing body in 2015.The scandal saw several dozen soccer officials, including some from FIFA, indicted in the United States on corruption-related charges. Blatter was not among them.In March, FIFA completed its own 22-month internal inquiry, conducted by U.S. lawyers Quinn Emanuel, into allegations of high-level corruption and handed its report to Swiss authorities.last_img read more

Hope says didn’t do enough in ODI series, looks forward to T20s

first_imgKANDY, Sri Lanka (CMC) – Despite being the West Indies’ lead scorer in two of the three matches in the just concluded ODI series, Shai Hope has lamented that he did not do enough to give his side a desired victory over Sri Lanka.Hope made 238 runs at average of 79.3 runs per innings in the three-match series, top-scoring in the first match with 115 and again in the third with 72. He put 51 on the board in the second match against the hosts.But speaking to the media after West Indies lost their last contest to suffer a whitewash at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium here on Sunday night, the 26-year-old wicketkeeper/batsman said he wanted to do more as his team tried to record their first series win on Sri Lankan soil.“I feel as if I’m not scoring enough runs. I’m just trying to do my job for the team,” said Hope, who was on the field more than any other player in the series.“My job is to bat long and score runs and it’s unfortunate that we couldn’t get the wins in this series. They say there’s a learning curve for everything, so hopefully we can learn from this as quickly as possible and move on from there.”Hope also acknowledged that, overall, the West Indies “didn’t play the crucial moments well”, especially in the first and last contests.“Cricket is one of those games where you have to grasp those game-changing moments and we didn’t do that. I think Sri Lanka did that pretty well. So that’s one thing that I can highlight for this series and going forward, that is one thing we should really point out as a team,” he added.As the Caribbean men prepare for their T20 International series which will also be played here – the first match today and the second on Friday – they will be hoping to put the series loss behind them and learn from their mistakes.“We just have to continue believing in what we know we can do and what the team can achieve. We’ve done enough to get here and we just need to tick a few more boxes to get us across that line,” Hope said.“We’ve had a decent run of form in the past few ODI tours that we’ve had. So yes, it’s a 3-0 loss and a setback for us, but there’s a lot to look forward to. We can say we ticked some boxes in this series, but having said that, there’s a lot that we can work on. So, we’re looking forward to see what we have in store for the next series.”The squad will be looking to build momentum towards the ICC T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia later this year.Included are dynamic all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell who played vital roles when the West Indies won the World Cup under captain Darren Sammy in 2012 and again in 2016.Hope said he was pleased to be back in the T20 squad and hoped to learn from the duo.“I played one game against the Afghanistan team in India and I always want to play every format if I can. I’m just glad to be here again. They’ve (Russell and Bravo) been playing T20 cricket for however long now, and they have a heap of experience.I’m sure that the guys coming up, the new ones in the team, like myself, we can get some knowledge from them and hopefully they can continue doing what they do best and we can win this series coming up,” he said.last_img read more

Bayern Munich Sacks Carlo Ancelotti

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti has been sacked as manager of Bayern Munich.Following Wednesday’s 3-0 Champions League defeat by Paris St-Germain, the club’s board has decided to dismiss the Italian, who replaced Pep Guardiola at the start of last season.Ancelotti, 58, helped Bayern win the Bundesliga last term, but they only reached the last eight of the Champions League and the German Cup semi-finals.Assistant boss Willy Sagnol will take temporary charge.Bayern, league champions in each of the past five seasons, are third in the German table, three points behind Borussia Dortmund, with four wins, one draw and one defeat from their first six matches. They next play away to Hertha Berlin on Sunday (14:30 BST).“The performance of our team since the start of the season did not meet the expectations we put to them,” said Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.“I would like to thank Carlo for his cooperation. Carlo is my friend and will remain my friend, but we had to make a professional decision. The game in Paris clearly showed that we had to draw consequences.” Former Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and AC Milan boss Ancelotti has won the Champions League three times – with Milan in 2003 and 2007, and with Madrid in 2014.That return makes him the joint most successful manager in European Cup history, along with former Liverpool boss Bob Paisley, who also won three titles, in 1977, 1978 and 1981.Ancelotti also led Milan to the Champions League final in 2005, but the Italian side were beaten on penalties by Liverpool, despite having led 3-0 at half-time.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

PRESSURE POINT: Syracuse uses full-court defense to remedy early struggles against Eagles

first_img Related Stories Coleman, Grant combine for 25 points in win over Eastern Michigan Eastern Michigan press conference: Boeheim discusses team weaknessesGallery: Syracuse beats Eastern Michigan 84-48 The frustration built with each puzzling turnover. The fourth came on a lob by Syracuse point guard Michael Carter-Williams with no teammate in sight.It grew with each missed shot as the Orange fell into a seven-point hole against Eastern Michigan. The eighth miss in nine attempts came on a 3-pointer by Trevor Cooney after James Southerland’s fadeaway jumper was blocked.Less than six minutes into the game, Syracuse needed a spark.“We all was struggling,” SU guard Brandon Triche said. “No player was playing good on our team and we just needed easy buckets just to get everybody’s nerves calmed down.”Syracuse found the answer to its early struggles in the form of a full-court press. The rarely used defensive system sparked the No. 4 Orange (6-0) to an 84-48 victory over Eastern Michigan in front of 20,822 at the Carrier Dome on Monday night. SU turned the ball over 10 times and only shot 35.5 percent from the field in the first half, but overcame the sloppy performance behind its defensive pressure.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange forced the Eagles to commit 24 turnovers and scored 31 points off the mistakes en route to the blowout victory.“We haven’t really tried to press that much,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I don’t think that’s the strength of our team. I think we can press a little bit.“But they have a couple of young guys and they made a couple mistakes early and they got a little bit shell-shocked against the pressure and we got some big turnovers.”Boeheim said his team didn’t move the ball well in addition to its inept shooting performance early in the game against the Eastern Michigan 2-3 zone.And he spent much of the first half befuddled by each mistake as he watched from the sideline. The head coach reacted to each with an animated display before calling his players over to point out their mistakes.After the game, Boeheim called them uncharacteristic mistakes by his backcourt of Carter-Williams and Triche. For the first time this season, Carter-Williams fell victim to poor decision-making while trying to find his teammates.Carter-Williams committed two of the team’s first four turnovers and finished with six in the game. Meanwhile, SU couldn’t find its stroke offensively, so it turned to the press — a weapon Triche said the team works on for 20 minutes each day at practice.“Once we all was kind of struggling, we were trying to rush a little bit and try to seek shots,” Triche said. “But us playing hard on our press, we were able to get steals, get them in foul trouble a little bit and get easy buckets.”The press was effective from the start as C.J. Fair stole a bounce pass by Da’Shonte Riley — thrown directly to him — and slammed it home to cut the lead to five. On the ensuing possession, Fair and Carter-Williams caused another turnover with a trap of EMU’s 5-foot-11-inch point guard just beyond half court.The Carrier Dome and the team suddenly had life. The press eventually wore down the Eagles and created easy scoring opportunities that Syracuse struggled to generate on its own.Southerland dropped in a floater on the baseline to give SU a 14-12 lead followed by a 10-second violation by Eastern Michigan as it continued to have trouble with the swarming SU press.Carter-Williams then found Triche for another bucket and Syracuse was starting to click. The turnovers continued to pile up as the Orange took an 18-point lead into halftime.The second half brought more of the same, and the team cleaned up its execution, committing eight turnovers and shooting 51.4 percent from the field.“I think in the second half we made better plays as a team and we played a lot better defense,” Cooney said.The defense remained at the forefront of Syracuse’s win. The Orange stayed in the press and remained aggressive to generate easy buckets down the stretch.The lead ballooned to 29 after Trevor Cooney knocked down a 3-pointer and raced down the court with his fist extended. On the ensuing possession, Triche elicited another excited reaction from the bench after forcing a turnover on Eastern Michigan’s Jamell Harris, chasing down the loose ball and finishing the layup to stretch the lead to 31.With less than eight minutes to play, Syracuse was well on its way to another blowout victory against a nonconference opponent. And it all started with the press.“I thought the press got us going from the slow start,” Carter-Williams said. “I think it got us some easy baskets and got our confidence up and we just was rolling from there.” Comments Published on December 4, 2012 at 3:03 am Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

No. 2 Badgers blanket Scarlet Knights to improve to 5-0 in Big Ten play DH fms

first_imgThe No. 2 University of Wisconsin women’s volleyball team won their eighth straight game Wednesday night against Rutgers University in impressive fashion, 25-6, 25-11 and 25-11. The match was 11th sweep and quickest match of the season for the Badgers (13-0, 5-0 Big Ten), taking only 65 minutes to down a clearly mismatched Scarlet Knights (4-14, 0-5 Big Ten) team in dominant form.Wisconsin held its newest top-tier ranking in style and looked virtually unstoppable doing it. The Badgers recorded only two service errors in the whole match and posted their third game of the year with a hitting percentage over .400 with .436. In the third straight conference game on the road Wednesday, the squad wasted no time climbing to an early lead and refused to give an inch for the rest of the match.The usual suspects did most of the heavy lifting for the Badgers as All-American senior setter Lauren Carilini hit a career-high six aces and 31 assists.  Fellow senior All-American and middle blocker Haleigh Nelson notched a match-high 11 kills and a .733 hitting percentage with no errors as well. The rest of the team for the Badgers followed suit as junior Lauryn Gillis, junior Kelli Bates and sophomore Tionna Williams all contributed to finish off the Scarlet Knights.As if Wisconsin needed any help on the other side of the court, the defense had an equally impressive day, holding Rutgers to a season opponent-low .013 hitting percentage at the end of the game. The match was as balanced as the Badgers could have asked for and proved this 2016 squad is truly in midseason form.A headline that might have been overshadowed by the brevity of the game was Gillis’s return, the player who spent almost a month nursing an ankle sprain that she suffered in Wisconsin’s only loss of the season at then-No. 11 North Carolina. The experienced outside hitter adds an incredible amount of depth to a team already taking major strides toward championship goals.Volleyball: Wisconsin players battle through injuries to continue winningThe University of Wisconsin women’s volleyball team continued their winning ways this weekend with a pair of road victories over Read…With most of the major parts back in place, the potential is endless for a perfect 5-0 Badgers squad tied for first in the Big Ten with five top 20 wins and the No. 2 overall ranking. Despite the success, there is still no room to rest with a matchup against No. 1 University of Minnesota only five days away.Wisconsin returns home for another tough in-conference battle against No. 24 University of Illinois Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Coverage of the game airs live on BTN.last_img read more
