Ligue 1 presidents slam ‘brutal’ move to end season

first_img Loading… Read Also:Serie A announce fixtures for remainder of season Lyon, whose chief Jean-Michel Aulas has been vociferous since the April 30 decision with his side set to miss out on Europe next season, and relegated Amiens will challenge the decision at France’s highest administrative court on June 4. Bottom side Toulouse are among other clubs expected to appeal. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Saint-Etienne’s Bernard Caiazzo, who is the head of the body, pointed the finger solely at politicians. “We’re not responsible, those who are responsible are the Prime Minister and the government. They have information we don’t have,” Caiazzo said. “You could ask if the government decided too quickly. Was there a discussion with the clubs? No. Was there a discussion with other countries? No,” he added. Some of the French Ligue 1’s club presidents joined forces on Monday to criticise the decision in April to declare the season over due to the coronavirus pandemic. Waldemar Kita’s Nantes finished the season in 13th place Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said five week ago the campaign could not restart but Germany’s Bundesliga has resumed while Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A and England’s Premier League are set to follow suit by the end of this month. “Start of April, we were the only league among Europe’s big five to propose the restart of the season,” Nantes’ Waldemar Kita said in a statement by Premiere Ligue, a union of the league’s chiefs. “We were ahead of time, we were mocked. We were the motor and the other countries followed us later. But unfortunately, we stayed in the same spot,” Kita added. Lille’s Gerard Lopez said the move was “pretty brutal”. “We keep saying that we’re trying to catch up on the other four big leagues and then we make a rod for our own backs at a key moment. “We’re all alone. It might be in France that football is not at the same level as other countries,” he added.

Why black coaches are struggling to make an impact in Europe – Finidi

first_imgFinidi George has revealed why black coaches said that black coaches are struggling to make an impact in the profession in Europe. Finidi George The former Super Eagles winger now a UEFA licensed coach gave credence to what Dwight Yorke, former Manchester United striker had earlier said, while lamenting his frustrations in landing a coaching job in England, despite the support from legendary Alex Ferguson. Dwight Yorke informed that as a black former footballer he ‘can’t even get an interview’ for a manager’s job – even with the backing of legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

And now former United striker Yorke has opened up on the struggles of black former footballers trying to get coaching jobs, saying even the recommendation of the most famous manager in the world can’t get him in the interview room. Yorke said he applied for the manager’s job at his former club Aston Villa, where he spent nine years as a player, scoring 73 league goals in 231 games. Loading… Unfortunately, despite the backing of a glowing reference from his former mentor Ferguson, Yorke wasn’t offered an interview. And in Nigeria, Finidi has added his voice to the challenges of former football stars of African heritage finding it extremely hard to land a coaching job in Europe and football administrators back home don’t have an idea of what they are going through. read also:Finidi George desiring to coach Nigeria “Dwight Yorke just said the bitter truth about racism.
