Porto striker walks off pitch after monkey chants

first_img Conceicao blasted the home fans before posting a photo of his player on social media with the message: “We are all Moussa.” “We are completely indignant at what happened,” he added. “We know the passion that exists at Vitoria and I think that most fans do not recognise themselves in the attitude of other people who insulted Moussa. Porto’s Mali international striker Moussa Marega walked off the pitch in disgust after being subjected to a torrent of monkey chants in a stormy Portuguese league game at Vitoria Guimaeres on Sunday night. The 28-year-old had scored a 60th-minute winner for Porto against his former club which sparked the home fans to aim even more vitriol at the France-born player which had started as early as the pre-match warm-up. FC Porto’s Malian forward Moussa Marega left the pitch after racists chants In the 71st minute, Marega signalled to the bench that he was walking off in protest even though teammates, Porto coach Sergio Conceicao and Vitoria players tried to get him to stay on the pitch. As he walked off, an angry and upset Marega gave a thumbs-down signal with both gloved hands to the home fans. He had already been given a yellow card for his goal celebration. Marega played for Vitoria Guimaeres from 2016-2017 on loan from Porto, scoring 13 goals in 25 games. Marega later wrote on Instagram after the game, which Porto won 2-1, that his tormentors were “idiots who come to the stadium just to make racist chants.” “And I also thank the referees for not protecting me and for giving me a yellow card because I am defending my skin colour. “I hope I will never see you again on a football field. You are a disgrace.” Read Also: Ligue 1: Quickfire strikes put Marseille in sight of Champions League “We are a family, regardless of nationality, skin or hair colour. We are all human, we deserve respect. What has happened here is lamentable.” Vitoria Guimaraes or the Portuguese football federation were yet to comment on the incident. Sporting Lisbon, one of Porto’s bitterest rivals, issued a statement supporting Marega and “repudiating any act of racism or social prejudice”.

Pence co-authors legislation to improve broadband access

first_imgWashington, D.C.— Thursday, U.S. Representatives Greg Pence and Peter Visclosky introduced legislation to close the digital divide in rural America. The Broadband Interagency Coordination Act of 2019, directs the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to enter into an agreement to coordinate on the distribution of federal funds for broadband deployment. This agreement will make it easier for rural communities to access high-speed internet by ensuring taxpayer dollars are effectively targeting unserved and underserved areas. “Connecting our rural communities is one of my top priorities,” said Congressman Pence. “As I travel throughout Indiana’s Sixth District, the lack of high-speed internet access is a critical issue impacting Hoosiers in rural communities. I’ve heard stories from students who drive to McDonald’s just to complete their homework, stories from medical providers struggling to utilize telehealth advancements, and stories from our farmers who are disconnected from global markets. We must close the digital divide and ensure rural America is not left behind.”last_img read more

Sachin Tendulkar was looking to end his career in 2007: Gary Kirsten

first_imgNew Delhi: Former South Africa cricketer Gary Kirsten has jogged down memory lane and recalled his time as the coach of Team India and his relationship with legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar. Kirsten revealed Tendulkar wasn’t happy with his batting position and was looking to end his career in 2007. India had also crashed out of the group stage of the World Cup in West Indies the same year. “I ended up having a great coaching journey with him. If I think of Sachin at the time, where he was when I arrived in India… he wanted to give up the game,” Kirsten said during talkSPORT podcast The Cricket Collective on Spotify. “According to him he was batting out of position. He wasn’t enjoying his cricket at all.” Kirsten, who took over the hotseat officially in March 2008, stated he helped Tendulkar reinvigorate his game, not by teaching him something different but create an environment for him to thrive. From the time Kirsten took over till the end of 2011 World Cup, Tendulkar played 38 ODIs and hit 1,958 runs including seven centuries (one double ton). During the same time, he smashed 2,910 runs in 31 Tests including 12 centuries. “And then he scores 18 international hundreds (19 actually) in three years. Goes back to batting where he wants to bat and we won the World Cup,” Kirsten said. “For me, all I did was facilitate the environment for him to thrive. I didn’t have to tell him anything… he knew the game. “What he did need was an environment… not only him but everyone… an environment where they can be the best versions of themselves,” Kirsten added.
