first_imgZidane already hinted at a press conference that this could happen. In the case of Vinicius, asked about his good performance in recent weeks, he said: “He is 19 years old and you have to be calm with him. He has to be ambitious. You have to be calm, We have 25 players and when not some are not on the lists it is because there are many important players. All these players could have more minutes. “The coach already made it clear that falling out of a call is not a symbol of anything other than the strong competition that exists in the squad, although It is true that Zidane does not seem to feel special predilection for the game of Vinicius. Zidane provided a call for 19 names for Real Madrid’s visit to Valladolid this Sunday at 9:00 p.m..

I am not here to say what they have to do. If I do, I speak directly with the player. They are here and I will count on them … when I can. ” Mariano was more expected, but the good game of Brahim in Salamanca invited to think that he could enjoy some minutes in Valladolid. But Zidane remains firm with his plan. In addition to the three of them, the sanctioned Carvajal and the injured Bale, Hazard and Asensio are left out.Full callGoalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.Defenses: Militao, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Mendy.Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, James and Isco.Forwards: Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Jovic and Rodrygo.last_img read more

Judge strikes out request for withdrawal of Bisram’s murder charge

first_img… attorney ordered to pay State 0,000High Court Judge Gino Persaud on Tuesday ruled against the application to have the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) withdraw the case against high-profile murder accused Marcus Bisram, who is currently awaiting extradition from the United States.One day after his absence angered Justice Persaud, Bisram’s lead Attorney, Sanjeev Datadin appeared at the High Court to defend his application to have the matter withdrawn before the Judge who was initially set to rule on Monday. However, despite the lawyer requesting to withdraw, Justice Persaud ruled against Datadin withdrawing at this late stage, citing that the court has the duty to stand against ‘dubious methods’ that could bring the justice system into disrepute.On September 25, 2017, Datadin filed an application on behalf of Bisram’s mother, Sharmilla Inderjali, to quash the murder charge against Bisram on the grounds that one of main witnesses for the prosecution recanted his statement, a contention which the lawyer maintained outside of court on Tuesday.The Judge however observed that the Attorney’s notice of discontinuation, which was filed on Friday, was an abuse of process. As such, Justice Persaud struck out the entire case, highlighting that there was “material non-disclosure” on Datadin’s behalf, since he did not include in the affidavit that he made an application in December last to stop the DPP from advising the Police in the Bisram murder probe.Justice Persaud stated that an applicant is required to present all facts, even if they are against the said applicant, adding that the court must be approached “with clean hands” when seeking prerogative relief.“The application of 2016 was not disclosed to this court and it was only through the court’s records that it was detected,” the Judge explained.In his judgment, he further noted that there are clear legal provisions to discharge orders nisi when there is material non-disclosure, without going into the further merits of the case.Justice Persaud struck out three orders nisi; one of which sought to prevent the three respondents – the DPP, the Chief Magistrate and the Commissioner of Police – from pursuing the murder probe against Bisram. As the orders nisi were discharged, Datadin was also ordered to pay the State by way of the three respondents, $250,000 in court costs.Marcus Bisram was charged in absentia last year for the murder of 27-year-old Number 70 Village, Corentyne, Berbice carpenter Fiyazz Narinedatt, who was killed after he rejected Bisram’s sexual advances. The five other men charged for the November 1, 2016 killing of Narinedatt are Radesh Motie, 39; Diadatt Datt, 18; Harri Paul Parsram, 49; Orlando Dickie; and Niran Yacoob, 37. Two of the accused men had reportedly confessed to investigators that they were ordered by the overseas-based Guyanese businessman to dump the carpenter’s body on the Number 70 Public Road to make his death seem the result of a hit-and-run accident.Additionally, the businessman’s mother and sister were also charged and remanded to prison after they allegedly offered bribes to Police ranks to “duck the case”. The accused’s mother, Inderjali, was recently charged for witness tampering. Since the commencement of the preliminary inquiry in Berbice, several persons have been accused of witness tampering and Nariendatt’s family stated outside of court on Tuesday that they are constantly living in fear that they could be shot and killed at any moment due to the influence Bisram has with money and power.last_img read more

‘It will be difficult for Man United’s starlets under Jose Mourinho’ – Wilkins

first_imgManchester United’s thriving youngsters could find it more difficult to shine at the club if Jose Mourinho is appointed as manager, according to former Red Devils midfielder Ray Wilkins.Louis van Gaal was axed from the Old Trafford hotseat on Monday after failing to secure Champions League football, and Mourinho is expected to take his place.But the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager’s arrival might not be welcomed by everyone.While the style of play and the so-called ‘football philosophy’ under Van Gaal was slammed by fans and critics, the chance he gave the club’s up-and-coming stars was a redeeming quality of his two seasons on charge.Marcus Rashford may have taken the spotlight, but FA Cup hero Jesse Lingard, defenders Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Tim Fosu-Mensah have also impressed and there are many others who Van Gaal has also given a chance to play at a senior level.And Wilkins admits that might be a thing of the past when, as reports suggest, Mourinho takes over at Old Trafford.“Unfortunately, that’s what comes with Mourinho,” the ex-England and United star told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“He likes the senior player, he likes player who has already done it.“The one thing that came out at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal was the fact he blooded eight or nine players of youth, and they all came through at a very high standard.“So Jose knows he has that back-up in the squad, but Jose has always bought in players who are ready to perform at the top level. And that’s going to be very difficult for these young men.”last_img read more
