Premier League clubs agree group training return from Tuesday

first_imgTopics : The training protocols were presented to players and managers last week before being rubber-stamped during Monday’s video conference call.Other rules in phase one include players not travelling with anyone to or from training, while the use of public transport and team vehicles is banned.Newcastle were one of the first top-flight teams to issue confirmation that players had been tested at their training ground.The club said players would return on Tuesday, by which time all test results would be known.Players will be asked to use an app on a daily basis to record any symptoms.”It’s been a really difficult time, but I hope with the news that phase one is about to start,” Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said.”I must stress that phase one looks as if it’s as safe as it can be. I’m sure everyone will be delighted that we’re trying to make that effort.”In phase one we’re allowed to train four to five people on one pitch, so basically a player has a quarter of a pitch to work within, so social distancing is not a problem. We’ll train with eight to 10 at a time on two separate pitches.”Everything is in place in the safety aspect. I’ve got no issues and I can tell the supporters the players and the staff are as safe as we possibly can be.”  ‘Making good progress’ The resumption of Germany’s Bundesliga over the weekend has raised expectations that the Premier League can follow suit.But some Premier League players remain concerned over returning to work while the virus is still uncontained, with Britain one of the countries worst hit by the crisis.Speaking to Good Morning Britain on Monday, Watford captain Troy Deeney said: “Phase one is social distancing individual training with a coach. That’s no problem, that’s like going to the park. “Phase two will be next week six days of training, three to six people training together with contact and then six days after that you’re going into 11 versus 11 and you can’t social distance with 11 versus 11.”I would say 98 per cent [of players] are very much aware that phase one is very good, I would say 65-70 per cent of people are concerned with phase two. I’d say even higher after that.” With the Premier League suspended since March 13 because of the pandemic, the green light for training came just hours after Britain’s Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said he was hopeful the top-flight could resume in June.”I had some very constructive discussions on Thursday with the FA, the EFL [English Football League] and the Premier League,” Dowden told Sky News.”We are working hard with them to try and get it back, aiming for mid-June, but the number one test is public safety.”If we can sort that out then we will look to resume by mid-June. We’re making good progress.” Testing for the coronavirus has taken place at Premier League clubs over the last few days and will continue throughout the training period. “Strict medical protocols of the highest standard will ensure everyone returns to training in the safest environment possible,” a Premier League statement said.”The health and well-being of all participants is the Premier League’s priority, and the safe return to training is a step-by-step process.”Full consultation will now continue with players, managers, clubs, the PFA and LMA as protocols for full-contact training are developed.” Premier League clubs will return to training in small groups from Tuesday after the latest stage of “Project Restart” was approved on Monday.Clubs unanimously voted to allow players to start socially distanced training in a bid to meet the Premier League’s mid-June date to resume the season.Contact training is not permitted at this stage and corner flags, balls, cones, goalposts, playing surfaces and other equipment will be disinfected after each session.last_img read more

India puts restrictions to curb sale of ‘Chinese’ products to govt agencies

first_imgAccording to officials the portal, which was set up in 2016 to promote small businesses, has been misused by many companies to sell imported Chinese products like office furniture, computers, air conditioners, auto parts, machinery and other products.”The decision will encourage domestic producers, as many domestic sellers were so far importing goods from China and selling through this portal,” a government source, with the direct knowledge of the matter, said.India is also planning to impose higher trade barriers and raise import duties on around 300 products from China and elsewhere, two government officials said, as part of an effort to protect domestic businesses.The government has instructed all its ministries and agencies to maximize procurement through the portal, run by the commerce ministry, and total purchases are expected to increase to 3 trillion Indian rupees (nearly $40 billion) this fiscal year from 500 billion rupees (nearly $7 billion) from the year just ended in March. More than 100,000 sellers are registered for selling products and services on the portal.  Amid growing calls for a boycott of Chinese goods after a clash on the border in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed, India’s government instructed sellers to declare the country of origin for goods and services purchased via a state-run online portal.The government announced the change in requirements for users of its Government e-Marketplace (GeM) portal in a statement on Tuesday. The statement did not single out China, but an official source told Reuters that the main objective was to identify items coming from China.Separately, the portal will provide a “Make in India” filter so that the government or its agencies could choose to buy only those products that meet the minimum 50% local content criteria, the statement said.

His latest strike arrived in the 6-0 deposition of Hoffenheim at the weekend, a game in which Polish hotshot Robert Lewandowski missed through injury. The Netherlands youth international’s performances may have convinced Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, that the lad is good enough to play for Nigeria’s senior football team.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Nigeria and Netherlands are in the battle to secure the services of Bayern Munich’s wonderkid, Joshua Orobosa Zirkzee. The player has been one of the revelations of the season at Bayern Munich, with the 18-year-old striker finding the back of the net with the regularity of a veteran. But the talented youngster may yet find himself at the centre of a battle for his attention between three-time African champions Nigeria and European powerhouse Netherlands. Zirkzee is of Dutch nationality, but he has Nigerian origins. His middle name, Orobosa, suggests he is from Edo State, in Southern Nigerian. This makes him eligible to defend the colours of the 2013 African champions. However, having starred for the Dutch at different youth levels, the youngster may be more inclined to feature at the senior level for Orange.Advertisementlast_img read more
