first_imgMadrid, May 31: Fresh from winning his third consecutive Champions League title with Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane stunned the football world on Thursday by announcing his resignation as coach of the multiple La Liga champions.In a surprise press conference held alongside the club’s president Florentino Pérez, the French coach explained that it was time for a change after three years at the helm, reports Efe.”I’ve taken the decision to not continue next year as Real Madrid’s coach,” Zidane said.”I think that this team needs to keep on winning and it needs a change for that. After three years, it needs a different work methodology,” he added. “I’ve made this decision because I love this club very much.”Zidane said he would always be grateful to the president for bringing him to Madrid.Pérez, looking ashen and visibly shaken, said the decision which he had been informed of the previous day had taken him by surprise.”It’s a sad day for me, for the fans, the players and everyone working for this club,” he said.”I’ve loved him as a player and as a coach, and would have liked to always have him by my side,” he added. “I can only remind him that this house is his family.”Pérez, who had given reporters less than an hour to make it to the club for the conference, said one cannot be prepared for news such as this, and thanked Zidane for his sacrifice, his passion and his affection.”His behaviour has always been exemplary and in accordance with Real Madrid’s values. I have no doubt that he will return someday,” he added.Zidane, who won the Ballon D’Or in 1998 as an outstanding attacking midfielder with a magnificent left foot, arrived at Real Madrid in 2001, when Pérez paid 77.5 million euros ($90.7 million) — then an all-time record — for his transfer from Juventus Turin.That season, he won the Champions League, scoring a spectacular volley in the final in Glasgow that is widely considered one of the best goals of all time.He retired as a professional player in 2006, after the FIFA World Cup in Germany, in which his French national team ended as runner-up following the loss to Italy in the final’s penalty shootout.Despite seeing a red card in that final after headbutting Italian defender Marco Materazzi in the chest, he still won the Golden Ball for the tournament’s best player.With France, he had previously won the 1998 World Cup at home and the UEFA Euro 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands while putting in decisive performances.He was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1998, 2000 and 2003.After retiring, he became an assistant coach at Real Madrid in 2013-14, when the team was helmed by Carlo Ancelotti, and won both the Champions League and the Copa del Rey that season.In 2014, he took over as head coach for Real Madrid’s B squad, Real Madrid Castilla.But his big break as manager came in January 2016, when Rafael Benítez was fired mid-season from the bench and Zidane was tapped as his replacement.That year, Real Madrid won its 11th Champions League after defeating Atletico Madrid in the penalty shootout.The two seasons that followed also saw the Spanish club snagging the coveted European crown: in 2017, it won 4-1 in the final against Juventus Turin, and Saturday, it vanquished Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev.Born in 1972 to Algerian immigrants in the multicultural southern French port city of Marseille, Zidane first started his professional career in 1989 at AS Cannes, before moving to Girondins de Bordeaux in 1992.In 1996, Juventus signed him and he soon became the Italian league’s most outstanding player, with his elegant ball control, superlative vision and impeccable technique becoming widely recognized across Europe.The late Alfredo Di Stefano, a Real Madrid legend who won the European Champions’ Cup five times in a row and is generally ranked among the best players in history, had high praise for Zidane after his first season with the Spanish team.”He dominates the ball, he is a walking spectacle and he plays as if he had silk gloves on each foot. He makes it worthwhile going to the stadium… he’s one of the best I have ever seen,” Di Stefano said. IANSlast_img read more

first_img StumbleUpon The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has made the decision to halt all horse racing across British racecourses on 7 February following the outbreak of Equine Influenza, casting worries about this year’s Cheltenham Festival.The shut down follows the Animal Health Trust confirming three positive cases of the virus in vaccinated horses at an active race yard. Horses from the infected yard have since raced at Ayr and Ludlow following the discovery, which poses a potential exposure risk to a significant number of horses from yards across the UK and Ireland.However with Cheltenham just next month, there are worries that a long term halt to horseracing might be necessary.The Cheltenham Festival in 2001 was cancelled amid a Foot and Mouth Outbreak that stopped horseracing for months.Veterinarians are concerned that the influenza virus has been discovered in vaccinated horses which casts doubts over the welfare and ability to contain the illness. The action to cancel racing as been welcomed as a necessary decision to restrict, as much as possible, the further spread of equine influenza.Officials from the BHA have conducted investigations into which yards may have been exposed and to identify the necessary further actions. The horseracing body is currently in discussions with the yards that may have been exposed to ensure that measures are put in place to ensure appropriate quarantine and biosecurity.The BHA stated: “The full extent of potential exposure is unknown and we are working quickly to understand as much as we can to assist our decision making. The BHA is working closely with the Animal Health Trust and will issue a further update tomorrow. “We recommend that any trainer who has concerns about the health status of any of their horses should contact their veterinarian.”An outbreak of the virus rocked the Australian racing industry in 2007 when a nationwide ban was issued to restrict the movement of horses for 72 hours. As a result, Sydney’s spring racing carnival was cancelled, with horse-related activities not resuming fully for months later.Since the announcement, Wolverhampton has cancelled its race meeting for Saturday 9 February.

first_imgThe new gym will back up to the existing one so the two can share locker rooms, a cost-saving move, Gould said. If the current draft budget is approved, the sports complex likely will house the city’s first dog park, which will cover about an acre, he said. Other plans include two outdoor basketball courts and additional parking. A final phase on the drawing board but not considered in the upcoming budget is two more fields, a BMX track and open space with trails along 15 unbuildable hilly acres. “By the time it’s finished it’ll have the full gamut from open space at trails to a 50-meter pool,” Gould said. Central Park in Bouquet Canyon sits on a little more than 100 acres and abuts more acreage being donated to the city by The Newhall Land and Farming Company as part of its adjacent River Village development now under construction. The draft budget includes $23.2 million for design and construction of the park’s third phase – now proposed as a recreation center, gym, pool, outdoor basketball area and cross-country trails on the park’s perimeter. A second dog park also is being considered there. [email protected] (661) 257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA CLARITA – The city’s two regional parks face more than $40 million in expansions in the next five years, with plans on the table for a new gym, a pool, a park where dogs can run off their leashes and a redesigned skate park. A draft budget and a five-year capital plan being reviewed by the Santa Clarita City Council include $23.2 million in major additions at Central Park and $17.2 million to expand the city’s George Caravalho Sports Complex. Fourteen acres of the sports complex are set for projects that will include relocating the existing skate park to the northeast corner of the 70-acre facility, adding a multipurpose playing field with lights, and building a second gymnasium. The complex, a converted cosmetics warehouse with grounds, already houses a gym, activities center and aquatic center. “The gym is pretty significant,” city parks chief Rick Gould said. “One of our biggest programs is the youth basketball leagues and we depend largely on the high school district, but we’re growing and they’re growing and at some point your elbows are whacking into each other.” last_img read more
