The FIFA has postponed next year’s U-20 World Cup in Indonesia and U-17 tournament in Peru until 2023 due to coronavirus.

“The Covid-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for the hosting of international sporting events and to have a restrictive effect on international travel, explained football’s governing body in a statement on its website.

“The global situation has failed to normalise to a sufficient level to address the challenges associated with hosting both tournaments, including the feasibility of the relevant qualification pathways.”

It added that FIFA looked forward to working with both host countries “to organise successful tournaments” in 2023.

The two events follow othr international football competitions to fall victim to the virus, with Euro 2020 held over until next June, the Copa America moved to the same date, and the Africa Cup of Nations, held over until January 2022.

FIFA council approved this on Friday after it was proposed in November.

World governing football body, FIFA, has approved 14 weeks maternity leave for women players.

According to the council, a player’s club will be “obliged to reintegrate her after returning from maternity leave” and also provide necessary medical support.

In a video shared on FIFA’s Twitter handle, Gianni Infantino, FIFA president, stated that the gesture was meant to protect women footballers.

He said: “The players are the protagonist of the game, they are the most important part of the game and we have to make sure that we set the stage for them to shine.

“When it comes to female players, we should bring more stability to their careers. For example, if they need to take a maternity leave, then they don’t have to worry.”

FIFA medical chief says there should be no football until ‘August or September’

Advertisements

FIFA’s medical chief has warned that restarting the current football season in the coming weeks could cause a deadly second spike of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Advertisements

Michel D’Hooghe believes football should not resume until the ‘end of August or beginning of September’ with a fresh season as rushing back risks serious consequences.

Germany’s Bundesliga has plans in place, subject to approval from the federal government and state health authorities, to get going again on May 9.

The Premier League, meanwhile, are working towards trying to conclude the 2019-20 season in June and July.

However, France has cancelled the remainder of the 2019-20 season in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 with Prime Minister Edouard Philippe set to announce football games – even behind closed doors – will not be allowed before August.

Speaking to The Media, D’Hooghe said: ‘We are all subject to decisions at national level from the public authorities. It is very simple. Football suddenly becomes not the most important thing in life.

‘I will be happy if we can start, in a convenient way, the next championship and have nothing before the start of next season.

‘If they could start the season 2020-21 end of August or beginning of September I would be happy. Then they could eventually avoid a second attack from the virus, which is not impossible.

‘Everyone has to be very careful for the moment. I have heard in many countries they are thinking about playing football again, with or without the public.

‘In my long career I have seen many situations where there has been a balance between economic and health. Mostly the economics won, whether that was about jetlag or football at altitude or in extreme conditions such as pollution situations.

‘If there is one circumstance where medical arguments should win against economical arguments, it is now. It is not a matter of money, it is a matter of life and death. It is very simple.’

Various countries are tentatively starting to lift lockdown restrictions that have been in place for several weeks though social distancing rules remain in place.

D’Hooghe expressed concern that players on a football field would not be able to adhere to these rules and sees teams changing and showering together as another problem.

He is also worried that players spitting on the ground causes a potential issue when it comes to spreading the virus.

James: This Coronavirus knows no borders

Real Madrid’s Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez has asked fans to stay inside to help battle the coronavirus.

“Football wants, from all corners of the planet, to show its support for doctors, nurses and the rest of the staff of essential services who are helping us overcome this crisis,” said James to FIFA.

“This coronavirus knows no borders. They should know that we appreciate them enormously, what they are doing for us. We should do our part too and follow the health authority rules. If we do that, we will overcome.”

FIFA ponder third transfer window to help clubs navigate pandemic crisis


FIFA could introduce a third transfer window to help clubs to recover when football resumes after the coronavirus crisis.

All of Europe’s major divisions were suspended indefinitely after measures were put in place by governments to halt the global spread of the virus.


With no income from ticket sales and matchday revenue, many clubs have had to furlough staff and ask players to take pay cuts to balance the books.

Meanwhile, summer transfer activity has been put on hold as clubs wait to see how badly they will be affected by the loss of income.


But there has been some good news for the world of football, after several Bundesliga sides returned to training last week.

The German top flight appears set to resume in early May, with the campaign concluding in June, though games are likely to be behind closed doors.


Other major leagues across Europe are hoping to follow suit but there is a strong likelihood that divisions will resume and end on very different dates.

If some leagues continue well into the year then FIFA are considering a flexible approach to transfers to allow teams to buy and sell players at different times.


At present, teams are permitted to sign players in two windows, in summer and winter but that now seems likely to change as a result of the pandemic.

FIFA’s director of football regulations said: ‘We could see the opening of a third transfer window, he said to NobleSports Reliable source.


A third transfer window would enable teams who have been badly hit financially to offload players and recoup some of losses.

On Sunday, Sources revealed that Tottenham are willing to sanction a world record £200 million sale of Harry Kane to Manchester United to balance the books.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is concerned that the club’s dip in income could have disastrous consequences as they continue to pay back a loan they took out to build their £1 billion stadium.

FIFA legal director: Transfer window will NOT open on July 1


The legal director of FIFA, the Spanish Emilio García Silvero, stressed that due to the effects of the coronavirus crisis the situation has changed and that on July 1, contrary to what has usually happened “the market will not open” for transfers.

FIFA can’t extend the contract of those players whose contract ends in June 30. Those Players will be free from July 1.


García Silvero acknowledged that FIFA cannot extend the contracts already signed beyond June 30 and, therefore, the players could leave their clubs.

However, they could not join another team because the transfer periods are going to change

FIFA President – No match is worth risking life.


The President of Fédération Internationale de Football Association, FIFA, Gianni Infantino has said that it would be more than irresponsible to restart competitions too early amid the coronavirus pandemic, stating that no match is worth risking a life for.

Infantino, who made this known on Thursday through Royal Spanish Football Federation, RFEF, said that sports have been brought to a halt due to the COVID-19 outbreak which has killed more than 95,500 people globally.


He said “As our main priority, our principles, the ones we employ in our competitions and also we invite everyone to follow, is that health comes first.

“I cannot stress this enough. No match, no competition, or any league is worth risking any human life for.


“It would be more than irresponsible to resume the competitions if the situation is not 100 percent safe.

”If we have to wait a bit more, we must do it. It is safer to wait a bit more than taking risks.


”Many bodies and leagues all over the world are set to face financial difficulties in the wake of COVID-19, particularly if games are cancelled or played behind closed doors.

“Thanks to the work we have been doing together in FIFA during the last four years, we find ourselves in a very solid financial situation.


“It helps us to consolidate a solid base of important reserves, but our reserves are not FIFA’s money, it is the money of football.

“As football has stopped around the world, we are all facing economic issues in different levels, from the base to professional football.

”Given this, we are already collaborating with you to assess the financial impact to prepare the right answer.”

Egypt, Liverpool clashes over Mohammed Salah


The Egyptian Football Association and Liverpool Football club are at loggerheads after the Egyptian FA announced it will be adding star player Mo Salah to it’s list of players to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.


Egypt qualified for the tournament after reaching the 2019 U23 Africa Cup of Nations final in 2019, and as they are able to call upon three over-aged players, Salah was picked by The Olympic team coach Shawky Gharib.

The men’s tournament is scheduled to run from July 24 to August 9, ensuring Liverpool’s current leading goalscorer would miss the Reds’ pre-season and the start of the 2020/21 Premier League season – which is set to kick off on August 9.


“Out of the three senior players we’ll call-up, Salah is the only one we’re settled on so far because he’s simply one of the top three players in the world,” Gharib said, explaining his decision.

“I haven’t talked to Salah at all about him joining the U23 squad for the Olympics, but in all honesty, his participation in the Olympics will need a little effort from him as well.”


The news has reportedly angered bosses at Liverpool, who believe Salah missing the pre-season will have a negative impact on Liverpool as he is essential to their play and is one of their main men.

Klopp previously said of the possibility of Salah going to the Olympics”


”No decision made yet. Nothing really to say about it. What I have to say to Mo I will say to him and not here (in this press conference). That’s all. No decision made from either side, that’s all I can say.

“I wish we could have the whole squad together for pre-season which is not possible for different reasons – the Euro’s coming up, Copa America again. Yes, Olympic Games – it’s a wonderful tournament but would be not so cool. So far, no decision and you have to wait a little bit.”


Following reports on Wednesday that Klopp might not let Salah go for the Olympics as FIFA has previously acknowledged that clubs are not obliged to release over-age players for the competition – Egypt’s under 23 boss Gharib released a new statement that Salah’s participation will be dependent on Liverpool and Salah:

“Salah’s participation with the Pharaohs team is a decision to be taken only by Salah, his club Liverpool and his coach Jurgen Klopp.

“I have chosen him in an expanded list of 50 players. The final list of 18 players will be submitted next June.”

On Wednesday Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa tweeted: “No decision has been made yet.”

Just in: United fined over furious reactions


Manchester United have been fined £20,000 for the way their players reacted to Roberto Firmino’s disallowed goal against the Red Devils on Sunday.

Most of the United side were disgusted by Craig Pawson’s decision to allow Roberto Firmino’s neat finish – which would’ve put Liverpool 2-0 up in the first half – after Virgil van Dijk obstructed David de Gea as the pair contested Mohamed Salah’s skewed effort at goal.


FBL-ENG-PR-LIVERPOOL-MAN UTD
Firmino’s strike, however, was eventually chalked off after VAR intervention, with De Gea booked for his aggressive approach to the referee after the ball hit the back of the net.

United later admitted a breach of FA Rule E20 for ‘failure to ensure the players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion’.

A statement from the FA read, as quoted by the Daily Mirror: “Manchester United FC has been fined £20,000 after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20 and accepting the standard penalty.

“The club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of a Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on 19 January 2020.”


TOPSHOT-FBL-ENG-PR-LIVERPOOL-MAN UTD
After van Dijk had put the imperious hosts 1-0 up, the disallowed goal enabled the visitors a route back into the game. But despite some late pressure, they failed to break the Liverpool wall and eventually fell to a 2-0 defeat – with Salah rounding things off on the counter in added time.

Speaking post-match at Anfield, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believed his players’ reaction to the disallowed goal was justified: “Maybe I shouldn’t talk too much about that. Let’s get that decision done but, it [the goal] was overturned.

“I reacted myself because everybody could see it was a foul,” he added.

David De Gea,Dominic Calvert-Lewin
It wasn’t the first time De Gea and United had been subject of an incident like this in recent weeks. In the 1-1 draw with Everton in mid-December, the Toffees’ goal came after Dominic Calvert-Lewin had seemed to obstruct De Gea’s effort to clear a corner, resulting in a Victor Lindelof own goal at the back post.

On that occasion, however, they didn’t get the rub of the green.

Just in: Agents send threat to FIFA with legal actions

…over transfer payment cap plan


Leading agents including Mino Raiola, Jorge Mendes and Jonathan Barnett have threatened Fifa with legal action over plans for a cap on transfer payments.

In September, Fifa announced plans to limit agents of the selling club to a maximum of 10% of the transfer fee.

In addition, Fifa want a 3% cap of the player’s fee and 3% of the player’s fee for agents of the buying club.


“We want fairness,” Barnett countered. “Fifa should recognise us and treat us in a proper manner.”

Fifa report reveals record £5.6bn spent on transfers in 2019
Fifa want to implement their plans possibly as early as next season but Barnett, who represents high-profile players including Gareth Bale and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, added: “The truth is Fifa doesn’t know exactly what an agent does.


“No-one from Fifa has ever been to my office or had a conversation with me.

“If you ask players what they want, they are in favour of agents. There are never complaints about agents’ fees from players.


“We will try until the last minute to resolve the problem but rest assured, if necessary we will go to every court in the world.”

The agents were among a 200-strong gathering in Barnet.


Raiola and Barnett were part of a smaller meeting beforehand, in which all agents present were said to be united in their opposition to Fifa’s intentions.

“For the first time, we have agreed a united policy in respect of Fifa’s proposals,” said Mel Stein, life president of the Association of Football Agents.

“We will be writing to them jointly to advise them that once there is a formal, consultative process in place where all parties can bring their proposals to the table, we will be eager to meet with them.

“As far as we are concerned, it sends a clean, positive message to Fifa on where we are on this.”

Change handball rule – EPL managers write to FIFA


Premier League managers have written to FIFA, asking for the controversial handball rule to change, NobleSport learnt

The new ruling states that any contact between hand and the ball in an attacking phase of play, is deemed to be an offence.

This has led to a number of goals being disallowed after VAR reviews, despite obvious non-intentional contact.


West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice, was harshly penalised during his side’s defeat to Sheffield United last week.

Wolves also saw Pedro Neto’s goal against Manchester United in the FA Cup ruled out, after the ball struck Raul Jimenez in the build-up.


The League Managers’ Association (LMA) has written to FIFA, listing instances where goals have been harshly ruled out after VAR intervention.

Wolves boss, Nuno Espirito Santo, led the calls for the review of the current ruling.

“The handball rule is going to be reviewed that’s for sure. Managers, players, fans have all seen that it’s not okay. The message is so clear and so loud about the handball rule.

“The fans are the most important people in all this and the fans aren’t happy. That’s a bad sign,” Santo said.

Liverpool plead EPL for right to wear FIFA banned badge

Liverpool have asked for permission from the Premier League to wear a ‘World Champions’ badge on their shirts, as the use of such additional patches are against league regulations.

Liverpool earned the right to use the special gold badge for the next 12 months as a result of winning the FIFA Club World Cup. But, as things stand, they are only allowed to have the ‘World Champions’ badge on their kit in the Champions League and not domestic competition.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Inter have all won the FIFA Club World Cup over the last 10 years and have subsequently worn the ‘World Champions’ badge in every competition they have played in, including La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A respectively.

But when Manchester United won the global competition in 2008, the last English team before Liverpool to do so, they could not wear the winner’s badge in the Premier League.

According to The Athletic, Liverpool have already appealed to the Premier League to allow it.

The Premier League currently only allows kit changes or alterations that are related to charitable causes. But The Athletic’s report explains that Liverpool have asked the league to reconsider.

As this writer pointed out for 90min earlier this week, it seems rather perverse for a league that has branded itself as being the best in the world to stop one its own clubs from celebrating the fact that they have actually been crowned the best in the world.

International sides wear a similar ‘World Champions’ badge awarded for winning the World Cup. France currently hold that honour, but Germany, Spain and Italy have used it in the past.

Liverpool will play their first game since winning the Club World Cup on Boxing Day when they make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face second place Leicester.

Photos as Chelsea’s fourth kit released to celebrate 50th Anniversary of FA cup win. #NIKE.

Chelsea are the latest club to follow the trend of releasing an unnecessary but aesthetically extremely pleasing fourth kit, and yer da’ is fuming.

The blue-out number will be worn for one game only as the Blues celebrate 50 years since their 1970 FA Cup win – their first in the competition. 2020 marks half a century since Chelsea beat Leeds 2-1 in an FA Cup final replay (back in the days when that was a thing) at Old Trafford, with club legends Peter Osgood and Ron Harris in the starting lineup.

Goals from Osgood and defender David Webb completed a late comeback for the west Londoners after Mick Jones had given the Lilywhites the lead in the first half.

The slick shirt features the club crest from that year, while the colour of the Nike swoosh and the main shirt sponsor are the same tone of royal blue as the main body of the shirt, making for a subtle finish that is much easier on the eye than most modern shirts. It’s a throwback to the kit from that final, so yer da’ might actually not be too cheesed off by the concept.

The rest of the commemorative kit is slightly less subtle, with yellow trim and numbering on the shorts, while the socks are fully yellow with two royal blue hoops and the Nike swoosh.

The reverse of the shirt features the same tab on the neck as this season’s home shirt, but in yellow rather than red. The shirt numbers will be in a retro bold font in a similarly vibrant yellow.

Mason Mount – one of Chelsea’s breakthrough stars this season – is a big fan. “It’s a classy, stylish and sophisticated shirt — a great way of remembering the iconic team of 1970,” he said.

“We know fans of all ages are going to love its simple design.”

You’re probably not wrong there, Mason.

Chelsea will don the one-off shirt in the FA Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge on 5 January, and it will be available to buy on 2 January from Nike and the Chelsea Megastore.

The Blues aren’t the only club to be given the fourth kit treatment by Nike, who dropped a special edition Senyera strip for their recent encounter with Atlético Madrid. Meanwhile, adidas have created an extra shirt for Juventus and Puma released a ridiculously nice blackout kit for Borussia Dortmund.

Whether the bonus kit trend catches on remains to be seen, but if the shirts look this good there won’t be too many complaints.

FIFA considers holding women world cup every 2 years.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has confirmed that the world governing body is considering the possibility of staging a Women’s World Cup every two years instead of every four after the idea was proposed by the president of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet.

FIFA estimates that more than one billion people globally tuned into the 2019 World Cup, with interest in women’s football never stronger.

Megan Rapinoe,Alex Morgan,Carli Lloyd
In the UK alone, there was a cumulative television audience of more than 28m, while England games against Scotland, Cameroon, Norway and the United States set escalating national TV records throughout the tournament, peaking at 11.7m for the latter.

FIFA is seemingly looking to capitalise on the boom, with Infantino telling Sky Sports News that halving the normal World Cup cycle to just two years is something that is up for discussion.

“[Le Graet] said we should organise the Women’s World Cup every two years instead of every four years because it has such a big and positive impact on the women’s game,” the FIFA chief said.

Megan Rapinoe,Alex Morgan
“This is something we need to consider and we are considering it. There are a lot of exciting points with regards to women’s football in the next few years.”

Were such an idea to get the go ahead it would mean a Women’s World Cup being played every other year and the suggestion to do so has already been met with justified scepticism and cynicism within the women’s football community.

There are concerns about diluting what is a special competition because it only comes around once every four years. It also overlooks the desperate need for the global investment in women’s football to come at grassroots level, rather than a brief month-long show.

There would be problems over whether many of the vast number of underfunded women’s national football teams around the world would have enough resources to go through a qualifying campaign and tournament twice as often when it is already a major struggle for some.

Even for better funded countries, the burden of playing qualifiers every two years in among continental level tournaments and other games could also quickly become a problem.

Van Dijk, a Major Doubt for FIFA Club World Cup Final

…After Lack of Training

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk remains a ‘major’ doubt to face Flamengo in the Club World Cup final in Qatar on Saturday evening after still not making a full return to training.

Van Dijk has been suffering with illness since Liverpool flew to the Gulf state and has already missed the semi-final against Mexican club Monterrey, a game for which the Reds lined up with Jordan Henderson at centre-back due an ongoing injury crisis.

The Daily Mirror explains that Van Dijk, having already been forced to leave a training session early ahead of the semi-final, took part in some fitness work on Thursday. But he was unable to complete the full session and so hasn’t fully trained at all while Liverpool have been in Qatar.

With that lack of proper training over several days in mind, it puts a significant question mark over whether the Netherlands international will be available for Saturday’s final.

“I don’t know how quick he can recover. We will see,” Klopp said earlier this week.

If Van Dijk is unable to return against Flamengo it will be a huge blow for Liverpool. The Reds were already threadbare at the back owing to the absences of Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren.

With Fabinho, who filled in as an emergency centre-back last season, also sidelined, Jordan Henderson was forced to drop into the back four against Monterrey. It could be that the Reds captain is asked to do so again, and while he is willing, it is not his preferred scenario.

“I don’t know what will happen with Virgil on Saturday. Fingers crossed he will be okay,” Henderson is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. “Of course, if the manager needed me to go there again, I would do it. It is anything to help the team.”

James Milner played at right-back against Monterrey so that Trent Alexander-Arnold could be rested. Klopp has also sought to bolster the squad by drafting in youngsters Sepp van den Berg, who is celebrating his 18th birthday, and Ki-Jana Hoever, both of whom played in the 5-0 mauling at the hands of Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

equivocada sobre mí, cariño (sobre mí, cariño)
Solo porque oyeron de qué capucha soy, piensan que estoy loca
(Ellos piensan que estoy loco)
De acuerdo, bueno, tal vez un poco loco (solo un poco)
Porque admito que estoy loco por esa dama, sí (oh)
Dedo al mundo, te jode, pagame
He estado matando al coño porque me estoy quedando sin paciencia
No más esperando no, no (ayy)
Rebotando como un yo-yo (ayy)
Vivir la vida en avance rápido pero nos cogemos en modo lento, sí
Ella dijo que ella era demasiado joven, no quería a ningún hombre
Así que ella llamó a sus amigos, ahora ese es un plan
Acabo de pedir sushi de Japón
Sepa que su perra quiere patearlo, Jackie Chan
Ella dijo que ella era demasiado joven, no quería a ningún hombre
Así que ella llamó a sus amigos, ahora ese es un plan
Acabo de pedir sushi de Japón
Sepa que su perra quiere patearlo, Jackie Chan
Sepa que su perra quiere patearlo, Jackie Chan
No puedo esperar para el show, oh, oh
Entendido, sí, lo sé, oh, oh
No deberías estar solo, oh, oh
Todo esto bebió me hizo arrojar, oh, oh
La copa me dio la razón
Y me siento tan vivo, ayy
Ella no quiere el dolor
Ella no quiere ser un objeto
Ella solo quiere quedarse afuera como
Ella solo quiere oler el blanco
No puedo decirle nada, no
No puedo decirle nada, no
Ella dijo que ella era demasiado joven, no quería a ningún hombre
Así que ella llamó a sus amigos, ahora ese es un plan
Acabo de pedir sushi de Japón
Sepa que su perra quiere patearlo, Jackie Chan

Mourinho still a Premier League force to reckon with.

…FIFA stats proves

Tottenham’s 2-1 last gasp win away at Wolves on Sunday kept alive an astonishing Premier League record for boss José Mourinho.

The Portuguese manager has gone over four years since seeing his side lose after going ahead in an English top-flight game.

So Spurs fans needn’t have worried when Wolves star Adama Traoré cancelled out Lucas Moura’s early opener, with Mourinho at the helm, a Spurs loss was unthinkable.

Clearly Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen was aware of his manager’s unbeaten streak, duly popping up with an injury-time header to snatch all three points.

In total, Mourinho has overseen 54 games without loss when his side have opened the scoring, winning 48 of those encounters while coming away with a point in the other six.

Even in his ill-fated spell with Manchester United, Mourinho kept the record intact, not suffering defeat in any of the 49 games which the Red Devils struck first during his tenure.

The last time Mourinho tasted defeat after his team scored first was back in October 2015 during his second stint with Chelsea.

The opponents on the day were Southampton and despite Willian striking first for Mourinho’s men, the Blues slumped to a 3-1 home defeat to the Saints.

Midfielder Steven Davis drew the visitors level before Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle scored in the second half to seal a shock win at Stamford Bridge.

The result capped a torrid start to the season for Mourinho and Chelsea, who found themselves in 16th position in the Premier League standings.

Chelsea had just eight points from their opening eight games and sat four points above the relegation places.

It was the beginning of the end for Mourinho in West London and he departed the club in December 2015, after watching his side lose nine of their opening 16 Premier League games that season.

After his spell at Old Trafford, Mourinho returned to management last month, replacing Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, after the Argentine was sacked.

After Sunday’s dramatic victory over Wolves, Spurs moved up to fifth in the league, only three points adrift of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot.

Mourinho has won four of his five Premier League games as Spurs boss, with the Lilywhites taking the lead in all of those victories.

But the ‘Special One’ faces a real challenge in his next encounter when he comes up against former club Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.
