Alba blasts Barcelona chief Abidal for ‘throwing s***’ in Camp Nou row

September 26, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgJordi Alba has joined Lionel Messi in criticising Barcelona director of football Eric Abidal for comments he made after Ernesto Valverde was sacked as manager from the club. The La Liga giants have been in turmoil in recent days as Messi took to social media to hit out at Abidal after the Frenchman said in an interview: “A lot of players were not happy (under Valverde )and did not work much and there was also a problem with internal communication.” Jordi Alba and his side were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night Messi took to social media to blast Abidal, and speaking to reporters following Barcelona’s 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarter-final Alba appeared to agree with his teammate. “The club gets enough s*** thrown at it from the outside so we shouldn’t be throwing s*** at ourselves,” Alba said. “Abidal was a player, he is loved by the fans and that’s why he should know what it’s like inside the dressing room and how players feel.” Barcelona slumped to defeat against Bilbao following a last-minute own goal by Sergio Busquets, and they have now lost three games in their last seven in all competitions. Messi’s future has been cast in doubt since his comments on Instagram following Abidal’s interview.

William Hill pursues HMRC FOBTs rebate

first_imgShare Betfred counters Oppenheimer bid in race to rescue Phumelela August 26, 2020 Share StumbleUpon William Hill has followed counterparts Betfred and Rank Group Plc in issuing an HMRC claim on compensation owed from tax charges related to fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs). The FTSE bookmaker could stand to secure a multi-million £ tax rebate on FOBT charges issued between 2005 and 2013.William Hill’s HMRC rebate stands from an April High Court ruling that favoured a joint appeal issued by Betfred and Rank which contested HMRC VAT charges on machine duties, as operators could exempt charges in accordance to EU taxation policies and its precedent on fiscal neutrality.The High Court sided with the betting operators on the grounds that HMRC had made no distinction with regards to the ‘supply of games’ until it updated its VAT policy in January 2013.Having lost two separate court rulings against Betfred and Rank, HMRC announced last week that it would no longer pursue further tribunal judgement on the tax dispute.Following the High Court ruling, William Hill became the first bookmaker to seek compensation from the government. Updating investors, William Hill stated that it was examining scenarios related to its rebate fee.“Whilst William Hill currently expects the net cash recovery to be material, its precise quantum remains uncertain. Nevertheless, the board has considered a number of scenarios which suggest a potential net cash recovery of between £125 million and £150 million,” the bookmaker detailed in a statement issued to the media.

His effort was well below his season’s best of 8.00m, which he had produced only last month in Patiala. The youngster, who has a personal best and national record of 8.20m, began with a 7.52m before clearing 7.62m.

The 11 other best performers went through to the finals with the least distance making the cut was 7.89m.Sreeshankar’s 7.62m effort here was his second worst this season. He had 7.53m in the qualifying round of the National Inter-State Championships in Lucknow last month.This season, he has been consistent around 7.80m with three jumps in the 7.90s, besides the 8.00m in Patiala on August 16.Sreeshankar was, however, placed second last in terms of the season’s best among the 27 jumpers who took part in the qualification round.
