Ceferin: European competitions will finish in August

first_img “In principle the idea is to stay in the same cities. There are problems with three cities, we will have to talk about it later, but we hope that they can be played in the 12 planned cities, or at least in nine, 10 or 11 of them.” France has terminated sporting activity until September which puts in doubt how PSG and Lyon will play their remaining Champions League matches this season. “We have an idea but we have to wait for the executive committee of UEFA to confirm the dates,” he told beIN Sports. “I can say that the European season will be finished, if everything is as it is now, in August. “As things look now, I’m sure that we can finish the European season and this means UEFA competition.” Even though several nations have cancelled their domestic divisions, they are still required to finish the European campaign and play qualifiers for the 2020/21 season. “I think the majority of leagues will finish the season. The ones who will not, it’s their decision but they will still have to play qualifiers if they want to participate in UEFA competition,” he said.Advertisement Read Also:La Liga clubs get nod to train with 14 players from May 18 “Everyone has to play their [European] knockout matches,” Ceferin stated. “And if you can’t play in your own country, you will have to do so at a neutral venue. “I don’t understand why the French authorities do not allow a match to be played behind closed doors in France.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is confident that the Champions League and Europa League will be completed by the end of the summer.

Mee desperate for Dyche to stay

first_img Press Association “He has brought a lot of lads’ games on in his time here so obviously we definitely want to keep hold of him,” the Burnley defender said of Dyche, who has been at Turf Moor since 2012. “He has not just taken the selfish route, and bought loads of players. He’s worked with the people upstairs and done really well. “It’s been a good couple of years for the club to expand.” The Clarets are five points from safety with four matches to go – the first of which is at West Ham on Saturday. After a strong start to the season, the Hammers are guaranteed to stay up and Mee hopes that can play into Burnley’s hands at Upton Park. “West Ham have had an up-and-down season,” Mee said. “They started off really well, now they are flying round mid-table so we will look to go there and hopefully take advantage of them switching off until the end of the season.” West Ham have won just one of their last 13 matches, but Burnley have hardly been on a sparkling run of form themselves. Despite spending just £4.5million since promotion, Burnley still have a fighting chance of staying in the Barclays Premier League. Dyche’s achievements have not gone unnoticed. He has been linked with a number of positions, but Mee hopes the 43-year-old remains at the club – irrespective of where they finish the season. Ben Mee is desperate for manager Sean Dyche to stay at Burnley this summer. Dyche’s men have failed to win their last five matches and their goal drought stretches back to their last victory at Manchester City on March 14. But Mee is convinced Burnley can get the requisite points to stay up from their remaining matches against West Ham, Hull, Stoke and Aston Villa. “It will be a massive challenge for us but we are looking forward to it – we still have that belief,” Mee said. “The games coming up are massively winnable and we will look to do that, definitely.” last_img read more

USG Senate passes diversity resolution

first_imgThree cheers · Students celebrate Tuesday evening in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center after the Undergraduate Student Government Senate passes the campus climate diversity resolution with an 11-1 vote. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanThe Undergraduate Student Government Senate passed the Campus Climate resolution, postponed two weeks ago and introduced nearly a month ago, at its meeting Tuesday night. The passing vote was nearly unanimous, with Sen. Jacob Ellenhorn voting against, and ended with a resounding “Aye!” from Sen. Alec White.The Rosen Room in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center was filled with posters placed by enthusiastic students, such as “I FIGHT ON TO SEE CHANGE,” “CHILDREN OF THE RESOLUTION” and “#diSCriminationLivesHere.” The room was also packed to the point that some students had to be moved to another room to watch the procedures livestream.USG President Rini Sampath, who was an active participant during the evening, said that this victory is by no means conclusive.“This is just step one of a larger advocacy process,” Sampath said. “We’re making sure that our University is able to implement these diversity initiatives and make our campus climate better.”Sampath said that the next step will come on Nov. 23, during a scheduled meeting with Provost Michael Quick that she hopes will be “productive” and “beneficial for the student body.”The intricate process of passing the resolution took place more in the offices of USG than at the actual meeting, during prolonged meetings in which senators and USG directors debated and compromised on each of the amendments.Right before the vote, Sen. Bulk Lao commented on the effort that went into this initiative.“We worked really hard,” Lao said. “We went to a meeting at 10 p.m. all the way to midnight on a Sunday, working on this resolution. So people have put a lot of time and effort into this.”The vote on the resolution was preceded by heated debate.One discussion focused on the proposed $100 million to be allocated for scholarships and tenured faculty positions for underrepresented communities. Sen. Giuseppe Robalino wanted to change the amendment in an effort to remove this specific sum from the resolution.“Today, actually, I was at a scholarship luncheon … and I had the opportunity to meet my donor of my scholarship,” Robalino said. “I shared with him the particular provision in this resolution regarding the $100 million. His response was … that the number was not an appropriate number and that it was too high, and this is someone who is donating millions of dollars to USC.”Sampath responded by mentioning George Lucas, who has recently donated $10 million to the School of Cinematic Arts for diversity-related scholarships.“There are other donors. If you ask George Lucas, he’s probably going to have another perspective,” Sampath said. “I don’t think that the argument of donors having an issue is really going to strike this down as it stands, because it is pretty evident that we do have donors and trustees that are ready to invest in the diversification and the strengthening of our underrepresented communities at USC.”Another point of argument was a provision of the resolution that asked for greater enrollment of minority faculty and students. Sen. Chris Fong had an issue with the wording of the amendment, fearing that the word “enrollment” could lead to racial quotas and affirmative action.“I do agree that we should recruit underrepresented students, and [for] the ones we do have we should make an effort to retain,” Fong said. “But by saying you will ‘enroll, hire and appoint’ based on race, I think that that’s where we have these implications of racial quotas and affirmative action.”Director of Community Affairs Brianna Thorpe responded, arguing that there are de facto quotas in place and that removing this provision from the resolution would maintain the status quo with few underrepresented minorities in positions of authority.“After that diversity ‘quota’ is met, then who gets the job?” Thorpe said. “If you are between a black male who has just as [many] qualifications as maybe the white heterosexual male, who is going to get that job? And we know that answer … there aren’t a lot of blacks and Latinos that are in these high positions.”Other points of contention were the creation of vice deans of diversity in different schools and the increased funding of resource centers. The main argument against these measures from senators and members of the floor was their financing. In every case, those in the majority argued that it could be accomplished given the University’s successful fundraising campaign and the possibility of better allocating resources.The Senate also unanimously passed the College Affordability, Student Service Assembly and Bicycle Coordinator resolutions.last_img read more
