Messi-chasing pitch invader faces stiff punishment

first_img Loading… The invader himself, who has been reported as a French national resident in Mallorca, attempted to play down the severity of his actions, while lamenting that he did not manage to keep a photo of Barca’s No. 10. “It was a great experience, I jumped over a two-metre fence,” he told COPE to explain how he gained entry to a game which, like all matches currently taking place in Spain, was played behind closed doors. “My dream is to have a photo with Messi, I went for him, I took some photos and the police forced me to delete them.” read also:Messi caps Barcelona win over Mallorca on La Liga return Barcelona led 2-0 at the time of the interruption, with early goals from Arturo Vidal and Martin Braithwaite ensuring a brilliant start to La Liga’s return for the table-toppers. And there was more to come after the invasion, as Jordi Alba and Messi himself compounded Mallorca’s grief with two further strikes to seal a 4-0 win on the Balearic island. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 La Liga has promised to take legal action against a pitch-invading fan who sought a photo with Lionel Messi during Saturday’s clash between Mallorca and Barcelona. The game, Barca’s first since La Liga was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic back in March, had reached its 54th minute when the interruption occurred. A young fan decked in a Messi Argentina shirt burst onto the pitch at the Estadio Son Moix and attempted to close in on the superstar before being intercepted and ushered away by security. And the governing body is taking the incident extremely seriously, slamming the invader and promising to act against him with the full force of the law. “La Liga will file the appropriate legal action, considering that this was a criminal act,” it signalled in a statement released on Sunday. “La Liga would also like to express its absolute condemnation of this kind of behaviour, which puts in risk the health of others and the integrity of our competition.Advertisement Promoted Content7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market ValueBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes7 Non-Obvious Things That Damage Your Phone7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchThe Highest Paid Football Players In The WorldThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With9 Most Disturbing Movie DystopiasWhat Is A Black Hole In Simple Terms?last_img read more

She won a Listed race over an inadequate trip at Tipperary and she will be more comfortable over seven furlongs. “I think she has improved since, but she will need to if she is to be involved. She is in good form and I’m expecting her to run well. “I booked Johnny on Wednesday when I knew Shane Foley wouldn’t be available.” Foley will partner Glassatura for his boss Mick Halford, a filly who made a winning debut at the Curragh before finishing fourth in a Listed heat at Naas.

The field is completed by Paul Deegan’s Avenue Gabriel.

FB : SU commit Broyld charged with public lewdness

first_imgAshton Broyld, a Syracuse commit in its incoming class, appeared in court Wednesday on a charge of public lewdness for his actions following a high school basketball game on March 9. He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge, said Monroe County assistant public defender J.B. Afoh-Manin, who is representing Broyld.‘Our goal is to resolve this case in as fair and expedient way as possible,’ Afoh-Manin said in a phone interview Wednesday evening.According to an article on Wednesday from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle’s website, Broyld’s charge stems from his actions after Rush-Henrietta’s men’s basketball team lost a playoff game to Irondequoit on March 9.‘The complaint states that Broyld dropped his pants, exposed himself and made lewd gestures and remarks after the game,’ according to the article.Last Saturday, Syracuse held a practice and scrimmage in Rochester, N.Y., at Sahlen’s Stadium. After practice, SU head coach Doug Marrone addressed Broyld’s status. Sue Edson, SU assistant director of athletics for communications, said Wednesday that Marrone’s stance on Broyld has not changed since Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I’ve talked to Ashton,’ Marrone said after Saturday’s practice. ‘I’ve talked to the family, people at the school. We are well aware of the situation. It is a private matter. We expect Ashton, as well as the rest of our signees, who have work ahead of them to do. But we expect all of them to be a part of Syracuse University in the summer.’Broyld won the New York State Class AA player of the year award in football after helping Rush-Henrietta to a state championship in the Carrier Dome. The quarterback was rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com.Afoh-Manin said he has been in contact with officials at Syracuse, including Kevin Van Derzee, SU director of football operations.‘They just want to be kept abreast of the process of the case,’ Afoh-Manin said about SU. ‘I’ve heard positive feedback from the Syracuse University football program.’According to an article in The Daily Orange published March 29, Broyld apologized for his own actions two weeks ago through a personal statement.Rush-Henrietta released its own statement after the incident, describing the behavior of an unnamed student as ‘completely unacceptable,’ according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle article.Afoh-Manin said the 19-year-old Broyld has no criminal history, and this is the first criminal charge in his life. He said the next step for Broyld will be a pretrial conference, which will take place April 27.‘We expect this case to be resolved in fair fashion,’ Afoh-Manin said. ‘We’re not looking to seek any personal treatment. We’re just looking for fair treatment for my client.’mcooperj@syr.edu Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on March 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjrlast_img read more

McCutchen eager to be back with Pirates

first_imgIn this March 17, 2013 file photo, Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen smiles after batting practice before an exhibition spring training baseball game against the New York Yankees in Bradenton, Fla. McCutchen arrived at Pirates spring training early. The defending National League MVP is only too anxious to get on with an encore. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Andrew McCutchen was almost as busy this winter as he was last season, when he helped the Pittsburgh Pirates reach the National League playoffs.McCutchen batted .317 and set career highs with 38 doubles and a .404 on-base percentage. The center fielder earned his third straight All-Star berth, won his second Silver Slugger and was the NL Most Valuable Player.Days after picking up the MVP award, McCutchen flew to the West Coast to be a presenter at the American Music Awards. He played in Shane Victorino’s charity golf tournament in Maui, Hawaii. Back in Los Angeles in December, McCutchen proposed to his girlfriend, Maria, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”After all that, McCutchen was happy to return to his native Florida and the relative calm of spring training. The Pirates held their first full-squad workout Tuesday.“I had way more distractions this year,” McCutchen said. “It was a quick offseason, but it was fun. I knew the quicker my offseason, the quicker the season starts and the quicker I’ll get married. That’s fine with me, so I embraced it.”The early part of McCutchen’s offseason was a whirlwind of appearances related to his status as reigning MVP. He’s the sixth Pirates player to win the award and received 28 of a possible 30 first-place votes.But after his appearance on “Ellen,” McCutchen’s image as a baseball star also became that of a soon-to-be-married man.“I wasn’t surprised,” McCutchen said with a laugh. “I knew that after I proposed to her, people would totally forget about the MVP award. That’s as it should be.”However, McCutchen is all business now that spring training is under way. As usual, he came to camp with a personal to-do list that he shared with manager Clint Hurdle.“We get his thoughts on the work he’s done this winter and where his focus is this spring, and we’ll see if it matches up,” Hurdle said. “Every year I’ve been here, it pretty much has. Andrew usually comes with a couple focus points. His game continues to get better and more consistent. He sets the bar pretty high for himself.”This is McCutchen’s ninth spring training. He turned 27 on Oct. 10, the day after the Pirates were eliminated from the NL Division Series.As he’s become one of the game’s rising stars, McCutchen also is the “old man” of what could eventually be one of the most athletic outfields in the majors.Starling Marte (23 years old) will start in left field and top prospect Gregory Polanco (22) is expected to take over in right field at some point this season.“It will be a little different, being the older guy of the bunch,” McCutchen said. “I’m still young. They’re just younger.”Polanco will likely start the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, although management wants to give him a long look in camp. Tall, strong and lean, Polanco has dynamic speed and is still developing what scouts say should be plus power at the plate.“I watch (McCutchen) a lot because he plays the right way,” Polanco said. “I watch how he acts on the field, how he works, everything. I look at what he does, the different things, and see what will work for me. He’s like a teacher.”Notes: LHP Francisco Liriano was selected the Pirates’ opening day starter. Liriano was the NL Comeback Player of the year after going 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA. He started the 2009 season opener for the Minnesota Twins. … Josh Harrison was the only player who did not report in time for the Pirates’ first full-squad workout Tuesday. Harrison’s wife had a baby last week, so the team gave him an extra day to arrive.last_img read more
