He knows what to do because Buboy has worked with me since the beginning.”Fernandez said he’s nowhere near the stature of Roach, whom he describes as “the greatest trainer in the world.”“Coach Freddie is legendary and I can’t compare myself to coach Freddie. I don’t think I’m going to see a trainer as great as him.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next During the first stop of his press tour at City of Dreams Manila, Pacquiao said he still hasn’t decided yet as to who his head trainer will be.Pacquiao added that even if he picks Fernandez over Roach, the door will stay open for the American coach in his future fights.“Freddie and I have a good relationship. We’re like family. I’ve not decided yet. Whatever decision I make, still I’m not closing the door on Freddie,” he said. “Whatever decision I will make, it’s just because I want to try Buboy to handle me. But right now, I don’t have a decision yet because I’m still not in training mode. I’m still in press tour mode.”Under Roach’s tutelage, Pacquiao defied the odds and made history with seven world titles in as many divisions.Fernandez doesn’t have the accolades of Roach, who is a seven-time trainer of the year by the Boxing Writers Association of America, but Pacquiao is confident that Fernandez has what it takes to get the job done.ADVERTISEMENT Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Manny Pacquiao trains inside the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood with trainers Buboy Fernandez and Nonoy Neri.

Demolition Debris on UL Fendell Property Kills Boy, 5

first_imgFive year old Romeo King was killed yesterday morning at the University of Liberia’s Fendall Campus when a large piece of concrete debris fell on top of him, eye-witnesses told the Daily Observer.Romeo and his 8-year-old brother Joseph were playing near a large pile of broken concrete slabs when the incident occurred, they said. The debris of concrete slabs are from partially broken structures left on the University grounds after it carried out the demolition of several buildings and shacks in the area more than three months ago to remove squatters from its property, eyewitnesses said.They said Romeo followed his older brother Joseph to play hide-and-seek and were sliding from the top of the huge pile of concrete pieces when a large piece of concrete fell on the youngster. His brother Joseph began to cry and tried to grab it in an attempt to free his brother.Mr. Timothy Duo, who ran to help the boy, told the Daily Observer, “Somebody called my attention that a child was under a pile of cement dirt and so I rushed there with three other men but we found out that we were too late.” Mr. Duo and the victim’s father, Samuel King, work in the security department of the Leon Q. Ledlum Central Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory operated by the Ministry of Agriculture at Fendall.Abraham Siakor, one of the men who helped to remove the victim’s body from under the debris, said what happened to little Romeo now indicates how dangerous the piles of debris and partially demolished structures are to children in the community. “It took three of us to lift the heavy broken cement from the body,” Siakor told this reporter.Another eyewitness identified only as Sarah, who sells palm wine not too far from the scene of the incident, said she poured water on the boy in an attempt to revive him after he was removed from under the concrete slab. Upon reaching the Bentol Health Center, about fifteen minutes’ drive away, Romeo was pronounced dead.When the boy’s parents, Samuel and Maron King, got the news and arrived at the scene, they both fainted. Mrs. King is pregnant. The incident was reported to officers of the nearby Police Depot by Mr. King’s elder brother, Jerry King. It remains to be seen what the University’s response to the tragic incident will be.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Arsenal ‘have to start believing’ they can win Premier League title, Gunners legend David Seaman tells talkSPORT

first_imgArsenal legend David Seaman believes the Gunners have a great chance to end their wait for a Premier League title this season after tasting a sweet victory over rivals Manchester City.The dominant hosts sealed all three points before half-time on Monday night thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, with Yaya Toure’s late finish just a consolation for the below-par Blues.The 2-1 win lifted Arsenal to within two points of league leaders Leicester, while also established a four point cushion above third-placed City.Manager Arsene Wenger was keen to play down his side’s chances following the game, insisting it is far too soon to be talking about a title tilt just 17 games into the campaign.But former England goalkeeper Seaman is adamant another win over a top-four rival will give the Gunners a much-needed confidence boost as they aim to claim their first league crown since 2004.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Invincibles hero said: “Arsenal have got a great chance [for the title].“They’ve got to start believing sooner or later, because the other teams are not doing well, they aren’t performing consistently. So they’ve got a great chance.“This season is so different because they’re beating the big teams, which is a massive bonus. They’ve struggled with that over the last few seasons.“But they’ve also got to make sure they win the ‘smaller games’. Their next few matches will be a big test for them and they have to get themselves up for it.”last_img read more

PILOT CRITICALLY ILL AFTER CO DONEGAL PLANE CRASH

Abramovich, who has transformed the London club since his 2003 takeover, has been unable to travel to Britain since his visa expired at the end of last April.International transfers involving players under 18 are prohibited unless their families had already moved to the new country for non-soccer reasons or they are close to the border of another nation. There is an exception for clubs within the European Union and European Economic Community that allows the transfer of 16- to 18-year-old players provided conditions are met on education and living conditions.It was first reported three years ago that Burkina Faso attacker Bertrand Traore played for Chelsea’s under-18 team in 2011 while still 16.

FIFA rules provide specific circumstances in which clubs may sign players under 18.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ “The club is extremely disappointed that FIFA has not accepted the club’s submissions in relation to the remaining 29 players,” Chelsea said in a statement. “Chelsea FC acted in accordance with the relevant regulations and will shortly be submitting its appeal to FIFA.”The FA is challenging its fine and said it already had “raised some concerns with FIFA regarding its disciplinary processes.”“We will however continue to work with FIFA and Chelsea in a constructive manner to address the issues which are raised by this case,” the FA said in a statement.Both the FA and Chelsea could ultimately challenge any FIFA appeal ruling at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. When Real Madrid received a similar ban in 2016, the sanction was reduced to one transfer window by CAS. But Atletico Madrid failed to cut its punishment covering two transfer windows.Chelsea already finalized one transfer knowing the FIFA verdict was pending.

The German club didn’t have to pay a fee.The transfer ban does not prevent Chelsea from selling players.
