“I didn’t injure Hazard, he did by contacting me …”

first_img“My first season at Madrid is bad. I will be judged in the second. It is up to me to be in good shape next year,” said Eden Hazard last Wednesday.. His debut campaign as a Real Madrid player began to twist on November 26, when he injured his ankle in the game against PSG, after a kick from Thomas Meunier, his teammate in the Belgian team. Since then, an ordeal. He reappeared almost three months later, relapsed and had to undergo surgery on March 5 in Dallas. An operation from which it continues to recover. Well, the author of the entry that changed Hazard’s step in his first season in Madrid, Meunier, spoke about that move. “YIf I didn’t injure Hazard, he was injured after contact with me. It’s a nuance !, the Belgian footballer declared on the RTBF SPORT Instagram account.The injury cut him in Madrid the ascending line that he had begun to draw and it was going to complicate him to reach the Eurocopa in a physical state and in full shape. Nevertheless, the postponement of the continental tournament to 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis will benefit Belgium, which, if no setback happens, will be able to enjoy its star one hundred percent. Asked about the suspension of the Eurocopa this year, Meunier remembered his friend Hazard again and joked: “I told myself that Eden was a friend of the Lord and that he did everything possible to cancel the Euro Cup. It worked well (laughs). It does not matter because it is not negotiable to take so many risks. It had to be postponed. The main thing is that it has been done. By the way, I don’t mind going to the World Cup a year later ”. Meunier, who hours after that fateful move apologized to the Real Madrid player (“I never want to hurt Eden Especially Eden Hazard”), never feared for the absence of Hazard in the national team tournament: “There were never doubts. The injury was super early, in December. At first it was two weeks, then two months, then there was a relapse. But I never doubted it. Even now, if there had been a Euro this year, it would have been there. “Eden Hazard, like all Spaniards after the Government decreed the State of Alarm, he is confined to his house in Madrid, following all the recovery plans sent to him by the recuperators and Gregory Dupont, physical trainer. Two weeks ago they removed the stitches from the operation and he is already walking. A recovery process that Zidane is also permanently following, who has telephoned him on several occasions to find out first hand how he is.last_img read more

TRANSFER SHOCK! Manchester United stunned as Chelsea win race for Pedro

first_imgChelsea have stunned Manchester United by sealing a deal for Barcelona forward Pedro.United have been chasing the World Cup winner all summer and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been in advanced talks with the Spanish club this week over a deal.However, Woodward’s reluctance to meet Pedro’s £22million buy-out clause opened the door for Chelsea to make a late move.And the Premier League champions have moved quickly to wrap up a deal after agreeing to pay the £22m fee.The 28-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Jose Mourinho’s side and is in London to undergo a medical before putting pen-to-paper.Losing out on Pedro’s signature to their Premier League rivals will come as a huge blow to United boss Louis van Gaal.Van Gaal had targeted the Spain international as the ideal replacement for Angel di Maria, but will now have to turn his attentions elsewhere. 1 Pedro last_img read more

Transfer news: Bale is ‘untouchable’ at Real Madrid and will NOT be leaving

first_img1 Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and club chiefs see Gareth Bale as ‘untouchable’ and will not allow the Welsh star to leave the Bernabeu this summer, according to reports in Spain.There have been big question marks over Bale’s future with the Spanish giants following an injury-hampered fourth season in Spain.The 27-year-old required surgery on an ankle problem he suffered back in November, and only made his full return to the side as a late substitute in the Champions League final victory over Juventus in June – in his hometown of Cardiff.But Real thrived in Bale’s absence, with Zidane tinkering with his formation and Spanish playmaker Isco starring in a more attacking role – the team winning the LaLiga and European titles largely without him.That led to reports the Wales international could return to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester United strongly linked with a big-money move following a failed pursuit of Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.But Bale insisted following the 4-1 win over Juve that he was happy in Madrid, and now the club have moved to reassure the star of his future in Spain.According to Marca, Zidane is a big admirer of the Welsh flyer and regards him as ‘untouchable’ at the club,Bale is said to be focusing solely on next season with Real Madrid and the club are confident he can return to his best after a full recovery, as they look to defend their double crown.The current uncertainly surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the Bernabeu also means there is no way Real will consider letting Bale leave.Bale’s deal at the Bernabeu is set to run until 2022, having signed an contract extension in October.

CAUTION URGED AS ICE GRIPS SOME ROADS

first_imgIT’S not as bad as some have reported – but there is still a warning to take care on our roads today after overnight hail, snow and ice.There have been a number of minor accidents around the county today, but in general most roads are passable.Some secondary roads are slippy and footpaths in some towns are pretty scary! Gardai say snow and slush are causing problems. A lorry blocking the road at Meenaroy has been moved.There is a car off the road near Lifford and traffic is slow at the Barnesmore Gap after an earlier incident.“It’s nowhere near as bad as last year,” said one Garda Traffic Corps officer this morning.“But it is slippy out there in places so motorists do need to slow down. Just because it looks ok, doesn’t mean people can drive as if it was a summer’s day and we have had some issues with that today.” More snow flurries and hail storms are predicted for later.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily Sell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comCAUTION URGED AS ICE GRIPS SOME ROADS was last modified: December 5th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegal icedonegal weatherice donegalsnowweatherlast_img read more

BUNCRANA AGAINST IRISH WATER BOSS RETURNS HIS BILLS BY POST!

first_imgThe chairperson of Buncrana Against Irish Water has returned three water bills sent to him by Irish Water.James Quigley returns his bills to Irish Water.James Quigley is pictured returning this correspondence saying he dos not recognise Irish Water, do not understand their intent and doesn’t have a contract with them.“The label on the envelope is one which I was given by Fliuch.org, a Cork based anti water campaign group who have given me a lot of help and support. I would like to thank them very much for their expertise and their continuous hard work “This is my record that I have returned these 3 envelopes. Irish Water can do what they like but I will not recognise them, I will not sign a contract and I will not be paying them anything. I will not let them install dangerous and unwanted smart meters on my property.”He added that  that this is a record of my defiance against our corrupt government.“This year is the 100th anniversary of the 1916 rising when we are supposed to be celebrating and remembering the generations who have struggled and even died to reclaim independence and ownership of our land. Instead it is a year of hardship and struggle against a government who is intent on handing ownership of all our natural resources to private owners. This government has lied, threatened and have condoned abuse on the Irish public. People have demonstrated that they in no way support this government. They have no mandate.“I celebrate James Connolly who died in the 1916 rising by this small act of defiance and I castigate the Irish Labour party for their part in supporting and driving the Water Services legislation through. My act is what James Connolly would have done. He encouraged everyone not to have anything to do with Irish Water.“Do not recognise them, do not sign a contract and join our boycott campaign.”BUNCRANA AGAINST IRISH WATER BOSS RETURNS HIS BILLS BY POST! was last modified: May 10th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
