Court hearing: Two men threatened to “kill” Arsenal midfielder

first_imgTwo men threatened to “kill” Mesut Ozil when they confronted the Arsenal midfielder’s security guards, a London court heard on Tuesday. The alleged incident happened outside Ozil’s north London home just weeks after the former World Cup winner was targeted by moped attackers while driving in the area. Security guard Kemil Sezer told the court that he and a colleague had been protecting Ozil, who was inside the house at the time, for several weeks. Salaman Ekinci and Ferhat Ercun deny behaving in a threatening or abusive manner outside the house. Assisted by a Turkish interpreter, Sezer told the Magistrates Court he first saw two men on the evening of August 8 last year before they returned around three hours later when it was dark. Sezer said the men told him: “We’re going to come back in five minutes and if security don’t go from here, we’re going to kill Mesut Ozil and kill you’. “We started chasing them … we got angry because Mesut Ozil, about two to three weeks prior, was attacked and we feared that the same thing would happen.” Ozil, who played international football for Germany but is of Turkish heritage, did not appear at the hearing. Loading… Ekinci and Ercun, both 27, were present. Asked by prosecutor Sarah Gabay how he felt, Sezer said: “Stressed. Mesut Ozil is loved by the Turkish people. “We have that responsibility on us to protect him.” The threats came around two weeks after Ozil and Arsenal team-mate Sead Kolasinac were ambushed by moped muggers who tried unsuccessfully to steal their £200,000 watches in an unrelated incident. Gabay said the pair were detained by the guards, who also had protection dogs, after they returned for a third time shortly after midnight before police were called.

Dalung Unveils Abuja World Cup Village, Challenges Eagles to  Excel

first_imgBy Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaSports Minister, Solomon Dalung has commissioned the Abuja World Cup viewing Centre.The centre will enable the members of the public, to view all the 64 Russian 2018 matches for the next 31 days, on a mega TV screen in the heart of the nation’s capital.The three principal partners that came together to conceive the Abuja World Cup viewing centre are: Kefas Ropshik, Managing Director of Kefiano Autos; Agaba Ikwue of Aden360 and Opukiri Jones-Ere,  the Managing Consultant Erupts Sports.At the unveiling, Dalung commended the organisers for giving Nigerians, who cannot afford to travel to Russia for the World Cup equal opportunities to watch the game they love the most, especially the Super Eagles ofNigeria.The minister also appealed to other private organisations to emulate the initiative of the organisers by giving back to the society through their investment.“It is only in Nigeria that we have people with a lot of money, but they don’t invest. Any resource that is not invested does not add value to the economy. He, however, lowered his expectation, advising Nigerians that while planning for the success of the Eagles, government has also projected for their failure in the World Cup campaign.The minister asked Nigerians to also prepare their minds for disappointment so that they are not devastated when they results they expect are not forthcoming.“But my honest projection is that our team will go beyond the first round and the round of 16 that have consistently remained our benchmark, ” Dalung said. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramcenter_img “The organisers of this event put their resources together to create a scenario where people that cannot afford to travel to Russia for the World Cup would freely walk in here to watch all the matches live. By this singular gesture they have satisfied the national passion of the less privileged Nigerians. I challenge other private organisations to emulate this gesture and try to look at the areas they can invest,” Dalung said.The Super Eagles are one of the 32 teams that will be participating in the coveted global football fiesta across Russian cities.Dalung, who noted that the team qualified for the World Cup without recourse to the Presidential Task Force, and huge financial vote, however, insisted that he expected the team to return with the World Cup next month.“I am a very optimistic person and that has to with my life. Through out my life journey, I don’t see anybody beating me and I don’t see any hurdles before me that can’t be overcome. I don’t expect anything less either from the team beside winning the cup. That is my prayer and optimism and plan for the team,” Dalung said.last_img read more

Fair’s diminished role in 2nd half costs Syracuse in loss to Marquette

first_img Published on February 26, 2013 at 3:40 am Contact Michael: | @Michael_Cohen13 Related Stories DROPOUT: Gardner scores 18 2nd-half points for Marquette, Syracuse fades down stretch in 2nd-straight loss MILWAUKEE — C.J. Fair lowered his voice as the media cleared out of the visitor’s locker room in the underbelly of the Bradley Center. He sat alone with a reporter when his voice dropped midway through a question about whether he was frustrated with his lack of touches in the second half.He talked quietly, deliberately and honestly.“I’m a good player, so I want the ball a lot,” Fair said. “But it’s tough because they were pressing and then they were running zone. It’s hard, kind of, to get the ball inside.”And so Monday’s game went like many of the games before it, with Fair putting forth a wonderfully efficient first-half performance only to see his role diminish in the second. He went nearly 12 minutes without an official field goal attempt, and No. 12 Syracuse (22-6, 10-5 Big East) watched its two-point lead turn into a four-point deficit during that span. The result was a second consecutive loss, 74-71, at the hands of the No. 22 Golden Eagles (20-7, 11-4).Fair came out firing to start, connecting on five of his first six shots as Syracuse put to bed any question of how it would respond following an emotional loss to Georgetown during the weekend. He sliced down the left side of the lane to draw a foul on the Orange’s second possession, and converted both free throws for a quick 4-1 lead.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt began a series of buckets that personify Fair’s game. His first hoop was a dunk off of a pretty feed from Michael Carter-Williams. Then came another dunk on a feed from Trevor Cooney. He followed that with a reverse layup off of a rebound that was tipped underneath the basket.He rarely forces shots and rarely shoots from the outside, relying instead on his craftiness around the basket — an asset a scout from the Miami Heat pointed out during Monday’s game.“We ran our zone offense like we normally do,” Fair said. “We just have to be patient.”But something happened in the second half, as Fair’s involvement seemed to disappear. The Golden Eagles played almost entirely zone defense during that time, and the SU guards had difficulties getting the ball inside.Instead, the trio of Carter-Williams, James Southerland and Brandon Triche took over the offense. Each of those players missed at least six shots Monday. Fair missed only three.Fair made a short jumper with 12:56 remaining in the second half, and that was his final bucket until the last 10 seconds of the game. For close to 12 minutes, the Golden Eagles held him without a shot — he got fouled once and made one of two free throws — and handcuffed the SU offense.Without going inside, the Orange failed to get to the free-throw line. And this season, Fair has been the only reliable inside option. Carter-Williams and Triche have driven to the basket with success, but Fair is the only SU player whose low-post moves can be trusted.Syracuse shot two free throws in the second half to Marquette’s 28.“We were doing fine up until the nine-minute mark of the second half,” Triche said. “They would score, we would foul them, we would score, we would foul them, they hit two free throws again, then we don’t score and then we foul them.“We just kept on fouling and fouling until we started missing shots, had a few turnovers and they got a few breaks.”Triche, who finished with eight points, said he should have been more aggressive in attacking the Marquette zone. He felt if he had gone at the weak side of the defense more frequently, slicing in from the wing, it would have created more opportunities for his teammates and possibly drawn more fouls.The interior of the Golden Eagles’ zone honed in on Fair, especially with Baye Moussa Keita and Rakeem Christmas’ limited offensive repertoire. By the time Fair hoisted and made a 3-pointer with eight seconds left — his first field goal since the 12:56 mark — the game was already over.He wanted the ball more, but he just didn’t get it.“At the under-eight minute mark, we had a chance to put the game away,” Fair said. “That’s when they did their damage.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse defensive veterans prepare to give way to younger players; Lester discusses running back Philips

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Though senior Cameron Lynch was Syracuse’s leading tackler and one of the best in the Atlantic Coast Conference, he feels comfortable handing off the keys to the Orange’s defense to its younger players, such as freshman Zaire Franklin.In a way, Lynch already has.“Knowing he calls the plays, I took a backseat because he can handle everything,” Lynch said. “As long as he keeps his head on straight, he’ll be a great player here. He’s in a better spot than I was when I was a freshman.”Boston College’s (7-5, 4-4 ACC) 28-7 victory over SU (3-9, 1-7) on Saturday signified the end of an era for a number of the Orange’s defensive contributors, many of whom will graduate and some of whom may receive NFL opportunities. But the conclusion of the 2014 season also capped off the first year of hands-on experience for a few promising young Syracuse defenders.After a 10-tackle performance at Pittsburgh on Nov. 22, Franklin made six stops against the Eagles, including a sack for a loss of 8 yards in his third consecutive start. Freshman cornerback Antwan Cordy chipped in two assisted tackles in his first career start.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFranklin is in line for a starting role next year with Lynch and fellow linebacker Dyshawn Davis graduating. And Cordy could be in the mix to receive significant minutes next year when Brandon Reddish is no longer around.“I think it’s great learning experience for them,” senior defensive end Robert Welsh said. “This is their team now. They’re the future. Whenever you can get young guys a chance, throw them in the fire and get them a chance to get some playing time, that just helps you in the future.”The Orange started seven seniors at 11 defensive positions Saturday, and an eighth starter, safety Durell Eskridge, may opt to declare for the NFL Draft. Aside from junior defensive lineman Ron Thompson, Cordy and Franklin are the only starters from Saturday seemingly set to be back next season.Lynch assured that he has confidence in not only Franklin, but also freshman linebackers Parris Bennett, Jonathan Thomas and the rest of the future of the Syracuse defense.Some of them contributed in small roles throughout the year, but more of them watched as the Orange stumbled through an injury-plagued 3-9 season.But next year, most of them will have a better view.“We make sure as a defense that we set the tone for the next defense coming up because it’s good for them to show that they have to fight to the end, regardless of the record,” Lynch said. “I feel like, as a defense, we set that example for (them).“Hopefully when they grow up and endure situations like we did, they’re going to handle them the same way.”Lester discusses freshman Philips after season-ending lossSyracuse offensive coordinator Tim Lester wasn’t coy about his offenses season-long struggles.He was reminded of a goal of scoring an average of four-and-a-half to five touchdowns a game when he took over five games into the season, and gave a simple explanation of how he plans to reach that goal next season after falling well short in his first shot.It centered around injured quarterback Terrel Hunt, but he also discussed freshman running back Ervin Philips as a bright spot heading into the offseason.Philips ran for 16 yards on four rushes against the Eagles, and collected 25 yards on consecutive plays on the Orange’s only scoring drive. He finishes the season with 193 yards on 46 attempts for a unit that scored just two touchdowns — and none since SU’s opener on Aug. 29 — this year.The Orange won’t return senior running backs Prince-Tyson Gulley and Adonis Ameen-Moore, leaving Philips with sophomores George Morris II and Devante McFarlane. Morris rushed for 101 yards and McFarlane for 169, making Philips the leading returning rusher.“He did a very good job learning the offense,” Lester said. “That’s hard to do as a true freshman.”Along with Philips, freshman Steve Ishmael had the most receiving yards this season, 415, of any returning wide receiver.

Perfect Match…Betfred deploys Aurum ‘reconciliation’ systems across UK estates

first_img Betfred boosts US racing coverage with XB Net deal renewal August 10, 2020 UK independent bookmaker Betfred has implemented new ‘reconciliation’ systems across its 1,600 betting estates powered by financial data matching software specialist Aurum Solutions.Updating stakeholders, Betfred detailed that Aurum’s software would replace legacy provisions for its betting shop reconciliation functions which were inefficient for the bookmaker’s day-to-day demands.June Manock, Betfred’s Head of Control, explained: “One of the issues we had with our previous provider was that there was an expectation that we would have to write our own scripts. Something which we didn’t have the experience or the expertise to do. We had quite a few bank accounts that we needed to reconcile, and it was taking quite a lot of time and effort out of our day.”Betfred retail management states that by implementing Aurum, the bookmaker will now gain better transactional clarity between its in-shop systems and its head office.Tim Andrews, Operations Manager at Aurum Solutions, commented on Betfred as a new client: “We’re really delighted that we were able to make such a positive difference to BetFred’s financial process. We’re also excited to continue working with the Betfred team, providing them with support when required and ensuring their Reconciliation Process adapts as their business grows further.” Submit StumbleUpon Related Articles Betfred extends World Snooker Championship deal until 2022 August 17, 2020 Betfred counters Oppenheimer bid in race to rescue Phumelela August 26, 2020 Share Sharelast_img read more
