Los Angeles (AFP) – Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face any charges over an alleged rape in Las Vegas a decade ago after US prosecutors said Monday they did not have enough evidence to proceed.

A district attorney in the state of Nevada said it would not prosecute the Portuguese soccer player because it “cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt” that a sexual assault occurred.

Kathryn Mayorga, a former model, alleges that Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward reached a financial settlement with her one year after the incident.

He has always denied allegations of sexual assault, insisting their encounter was consensual.

The Clark County District Attorney’s Office said it had received a report from Mayorga — who it identified only as “V” — on June 13, 2009, reporting that she had been the victim of Continue reading “Cristiano Ronaldo will not face rape charges in US”

London (AFP) – Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata hopes Paul Pogba remains at Old Trafford next season and rubbished suggestions the Frenchman could be a disruptive influence if he is not allowed to move.

Pogba has publicly stated his wish for a “new challenge,” amidst interest from Real Madrid.

The World Cup winner’s agent Mino Raiola also told The Times earlier this month that “everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on.”

However, Pogba has travelled with United on their pre-season tour of Australia and Singapore and shone in victories over Perth Glory, Leeds United and Inter Milan.

“We all know Paul and he is a fantastic midfielder, and a very good guy, very positive, and a good influence for everyone,” Mata told Sky Sports.

“I think he is happy and brings everyone together, but I cannot speak for other people — I speak for myself.

“As a Continue reading “Mata hopes ‘positive’ Pogba remains at Man Utd”

New York (AFP) – Alejandro Pozo delivered the late dagger in 10-man Sevilla’s 2-1 friendly win over Liverpool in Boston Sunday, a defeat made worse for the European champions when they saw Yasser Larouci stretchered off.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was furious at Joris Gagnon’s outrageous kick at an on-rushing Larouci in the 76th minute. Gnagnon was shown a straight red card after sweeping one of the Frenchman’s legs out from underneath him, toppling him to the pitch where his head bounced hard on the ground.

Even with the La Liga outfit reduced to 10 men, however, Liverpool were unable find a way ahead, and Pozo sealed it in the 90th minute as he smoothly collected a pass from Munir El Haddadi, rounded Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet and knocked the winner into an unguarded net.

Sevilla had enjoyed by far the majority of scoring chances on a sweltering evening at Continue reading “Liverpool fall 2-1 to Sevilla in Fenway friendly”

Madrid (AFP) – Antoine Griezmann admitted on Sunday that he was moved to tears of happiness when his big-money move to Barcelona finally came through after a controversial exit from former club Atletico Madrid.

The World Cup winner is in Tokyo with Barca ahead of a clash with Chelsea on Tuesday after the La Liga giants shelled out 120 million euros ($135 million) to match his release clause amid a blistering row between the player and the two clubs.

“I called my father and I started crying with joy because the transfer was all done, it all was over,” Griezmann said in an interview with sports daily Marca.

“I was with my friends, with my wife, with my children and it was an incredible moment.”

The 28-year-old added he was targeting European glory with Barcelona after two humiliating exits for the Catalans from the Champions League in the last Continue reading “Griezmann ‘cried with joy’ at Barca move”

Los Angeles (AFP) – Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane says the La Liga giants are poised to offload Welsh star Gareth Bale in the coming days.

Bale was left off Real Madrid’s roster for Saturday’s 3-1 exhibition loss to Bayern Munich at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. 

“He wasn’t included in the squad because the club is working on his departure and that’s why he didn’t play,” Zidane said. “We’ll have to see what happens in the coming days. 

“We’ll have to see if it goes through tomorrow, if it does then all the better. Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, that it happens soon.”

Zidane insists the 30-year-old forward is not a good fit for his squad. While Bale would be welcome at a host of marquee clubs, his big salary may prove to be an obstacle for all but the richest teams.

“It’s nothing personal,” Continue reading “Real Madrid ready to move Welsh star Bale”

Los Angeles (AFP) – Zlatan Ibrahimovic lived up to the bravado on Friday, scoring all three goals to power the LA Galaxy to a hard fought 3-2 victory over MLS rivals Los Angeles Football Club. 

The unstoppable 37-year-old showed he’s still capable of astounding feats by dominating the smaller LAFC defence and scoring when it counted the most for his second career MLS hat trick.  

“When you play against a rival like that, in a full stadium, I get pumped. I get adrenaline. This is considered to be the biggest game in the league and I show up in the biggest games,” said Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic, who has a flair for the dramatic since the big Swede joined the MLS in 2018, boasted prior to Friday’s game that he is “by far” the best player in the league despite Carlos Vela’s superior stats.

The pre-game hype was about the Continue reading “Unstoppable Ibrahimovic nets hat trick in upset win over LAFC”

Shanghai (AFP) – Steve Bruce made a defiant first appearance as head coach of Newcastle United on Friday, hitting out at the “nonsense” surrounding his appointment and asked for time to prove himself.

The 58-year-old was installed as Rafael Benitez’s replacement on Wednesday, as angry fans vented their displeasure at owner Mike Ashley’s running of the club.

In his first press conference, in Shanghai, Bruce made a staunch defence of his managerial record, while admitting on several occasions that he was “not everyone’s cup of tea”.

Bruce, whose appointment has gone down badly with Newcastle fans, partly because he was once in charge of fierce rivals Sunderland, cut a determined figure from the off.

A boyhood Newcastle fan, Bruce said that he was under “no illusions” about the task facing him — he called it the greatest challenge of his long managerial career.

His new side are among the Premier Continue reading “Bruce hits out at ‘nonsense’ in bullish Newcastle debut”

Chicago (AFP) – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said Thursday he expects to remain at Anfield for at least three more years as the Premier League giants prepare to kick off their pre-season tour to North America.

Klopp, who successfully guided Liverpool to a sixth Champions League crown last month, was taken aback when asked to comment on reports suggesting he may leave the club when his current contract expires in 2022.

“Wow! I don’t think a lot of people get asked that question three years before the contract is expiring,” Klopp said.

“We will see. Why should we think about this? At least three years – that’s the answer. At least three years.”

ESPN reported last month that Klopp was pondering a sabbatical when his Liverpool contract ends. Agent Mark Kosicke meanwhile has hinted that Klopp may be interested in taking over as coach of the German national team.

Portrush (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Ireland’s Shane Lowry said he felt “uneasy” on the first tee before going on to take the early lead on Thursday as the British Open returned to Northern Ireland for the first time since 1951.

The 32-year-old carded a four-under-par first round of 67 at Royal Portrush to move one shot clear of a group of five players.

But Lowry admitted that he felt the pressure early on.

“I felt uncomfortable on the first tee, I was glad it was downwind so it was only a three iron,” he said.

“It’s the British Open, it’s in Ireland. I feel like I’m hitting it well. Of course I feel uneasy.

“Nerves are a good thing… I hope I’m nervous on Sunday afternoon, that’s where you want to be. You have to ask yourself if you’d rather be there or sat at home watching on TV.”

London (AFP) – Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been fined and suspended for six weeks for breaching betting rules, the Football Association announced on Thursday.

An independent regulatory commission found that 29-year-old Sturridge, capped 26 times by England, had instructed his brother to bet on a possible move to Sevilla during the January 2018 transfer window.

The commission suspended Sturridge from participating in any domestic football for six weeks, with a further four weeks suspended, and fined him £75,000 ($94,000). 

Nine of the 11 charges against the striker were dismissed and Sturridge is free to resume his career on July 31, just before the English season starts. 

The FA said it believed the punishment should have been stiffer and that it would appeal. 

The England international left European champions Liverpool when his contract expired at the end of June and is without a club.

Brussels (AFP) – Former Belgium national team manager Robert Waseige died on Wednesday at the age of 79, Belgian television reported on Wednesday.

The first Walloon coach in the history of the Red Devils had been hospitalised for a week with heart failure and kidney problems, French language RTBF TV reported.

“Belgian football has lost a great personality with the death of Robert Waseige,” Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted.  

Born on August 26, 1939 near Liege, Waseige, nicknamed the “Magician”, managed a string of Belgian clubs as well as Sporting in Portugal and the Belgian and Algerian national teams. 

He won only two trophies, the now discontinued League Cup in 1986 with RFC Liege and the Belgian Cup in 1990 with the same club. But he was named Belgian manager of the year three times.

Waseige took over as national coach in 1999 ahead of Euro-2000, where Continue reading “Former Belgium manager Waseige dies at 79: reports”

Perth (Australia) (AFP) – Paul Pogba shined as an under-pressure Manchester United stepped up their pre-season campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of old rivals Leeds on Wednesday.

United had faced criticism after an unconvincing 2-0 victory over a depleted Perth Glory on the weekend. 

In a much-needed tonic, the Red Devils clinically dismantled Leeds, who have high hopes of returning to the English Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Pogba, who has been linked with a move to Juventus and Real Madrid, starred in United’s dominant first-half and was part of a pretty chain of passing to set up 17-year-old Mason Greenwood’s first senior goal in the seventh minute.

Moments later, a powerful strike from the French midfielder was well saved by goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. 

But it was only a matter of time before United broke through with a moment of magic in the 27th minute Continue reading “Pogba shines as United thrash Leeds”

Nanjing (China) (AFP) – The scale of the task facing new head coach Steve Bruce was brutally laid bare as Newcastle United were thrashed 4-0 by Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in China on Wednesday.

Former Manchester United defender Bruce, whose appointment was confirmed just hours before kick-off, will jet over to take charge of Newcastle’s next friendly, in Shanghai on Saturday.

It was only a low-key exhibition match, but the heavy defeat to Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves in Nanjing was more evidence that Newcastle are likely to be battling relegation this season.

Newcastle have risked stoking the anger of their frustrated fans by hiring former Sunderland boss Bruce, who has sealed a three-year contract to succeed the hugely popular Rafael Benitez.

There were even isolated chants against hated club owner Mike Ashley during the Wolves loss.

Federico Fernandez, the Newcastle defender, called on fans angry with Bruce’s arrival to Continue reading “Newcastle thrashed by Wolves as fans bemoan Bruce appointment”

Kuala Lumpur (AFP) – North and South Korea will face off in politically-charged World Cup qualifiers after being drawn in the same group Wednesday, while arch-rivals Iran and Iraq will also meet.

Heavyweights Iran, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Saudi Arabia — who all played in the 2018 World Cup in Russia — were drawn in different groups for the Asian qualifiers of the 2022 edition of the tournament in Qatar. 

China, who are seeking to qualify for the World Cup for only the second time, look to have a promising fixture against lower-ranked opponents including war-torn Syria and tiny Guam.

The country and its 73rd-ranked team have grand ambitions to host and win a World Cup under football-fan President Xi Jinping.

South Korea is one of Asia’s best sides and should easily beat the North, but the matches between the neighbours on the divided Korean peninsula promise to be Continue reading “North, South Korea to face off in World Cup qualifiers”

Cairo (AFP) – After a Champions League title with Liverpool, Sadio Mane is out to conquer a second continent in as many months as Senegal attempt to capture a first Africa Cup of Nations title against Algeria in Friday’s final in Cairo.

A calf injury ruined Mane’s 2015 Cup of Nations, while his missed penalty knocked the team out in a quarter-final shootout two years ago, and he has already twice failed from the spot in Egypt. 

Mirroring the fortunes of the Teranga Lions, often favourites but never champions, the 27-year-old has sometimes disappointed, although he likely holds the key to Senegal erasing 60 years of hurt in African football.

Coming off his most prolific Premier League season, finishing in a three-way tie for the golden boot with 22 goals, and a European crown in June, Mane is the face of a new, successful generation and deserves recognition in Continue reading “Senegal star Mane out to press Ballon d’Or case”

Europe’s heavyweights have all been busy. Catch up on the big moves in La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1

After an underwhelming title race and struggles in Europe, Spain’s top three have all been very busy already. Real Madrid have spent more than £250m to sign Eden Hazard, striker Luka Jovic and defenders Ferland Mendy and Éder Militão, along with Brazilian forward Rodrygo, who arrives after agreeing a move last summer. The sale of fringe players like Mateo Kovacic has helped offset the outlay – but there may be more to come.

Warsaw (AFP) – Polish Olympic hammer champion Anita Wlodarczyk will not defend her world title later this year after undergoing knee surgery and will target the 2020 Tokyo Games, the athlete and her coach indicated on Tuesday.

Wlodarczyk, 33, the hammer world record holder has dominated her event, winning gold at the last two Olympics and four world titles. 

After a knee operation she posted an Instagram picture of herself in a hospital bed with a brace on her left leg pointing to her other leg which had “Tokyo 2020” written on it.

“The goal is one,” she wrote in the caption. “#Tokyo2020.” 

“Keep your fingers crossed,” she added.

Her coach Krzysztof Kaliszewski told Poland’s TVN24 commercial news channel that “During surgery, it turned out that… matters are a little more serious.”

“I won’t go into detail, but physiotherapy will last about three months,” Kaliszewski added. “We Continue reading “Hammer throw world champ Wlodarczyk to skip Doha games”

Perth (Australia) (AFP) – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Tuesday he was optimistic that goalkeeper David De Gea would sign a new deal to remain at Old Trafford as Manchester United prepared to face old rivals Leeds in Perth.

United’s pre-season tour of Australia has been overshadowed speculation over the futures of several stars, including De Gea who is in the last year of his contract and has been linked with French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spaniard is reportedly close to signing a new five-year deal with United worth in excess of £350,000 a week that would make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the world. 

De Gea was rested from United’s pre-season opener against Perth Glory on Saturday but will line up against Leeds on Wednesday to wrap up the Red Devils’ 10-day visit to the Western Australia city.  

“He’ll play and hopefully we can agree (on a Continue reading “Solskjaer confident De Gea will sign new deal soon”
