Coronavirus: UEFA postpone Euro 2020 playoffs, UCL,  Europa  games indefinitely

Read More7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?Big Actors Who Started Off With A Part In A Soap Opera The semi-final and final ties, originally due to be played last month, had been pushed back until June due to the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Europe. However, with the situation still worsening in many parts of the continent the decision has been taken to delay the matches indefinitely. The play-offs will determine the final four participants at Euro 2020, which will now not start until June 11, 2021. Northern Ireland are due to face Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Republic are up against Slovakia while Scotland will take on Israel. UEFA also announced following a video conference with its national member associations that Women’s Euro qualifiers and other international friendlies scheduled for June had also been postponed, leaving the path clear for 2019-20 domestic league matches to be played if conditions allow by then. All UEFA competitions, including the Champions League and Europa League, are indefinitely postponed but that comes as no surprise with the finals of both competitions called off with no new dates yet allocated. It is understood the national associations were presented with a variety of options for the resumption of domestic league action by a fixtures working group during the call, but no decision was made because it remains very difficult to predict how long the disruption will last. In the event that the resumption of domestic football is severely delayed, it is thought it would take precedence over European competition. The UEFA executive committee has also decided to suspend certain aspects of club licensing provisions due to the “increasing uncertainty generated by the ongoing extraordinary events”. These include the requirement to provide the preparation and assessment of clubs’ future financial information.

Victor Valdes’ agent suggests goalkeeper will leave Manchester United in January

first_img The ex-Barcelona goalkeeper has only made two appearances since joining the Red Devils in January after recovering from knee surgery. Valdes has had a strained relationship with United manager Louis van Gaal and was not given a squad number for the 2015-16 campaign. Victor Valdes’ difficult spell at Manchester United is set to end in January, according to his agent. When asked about Valdes’ future, his agent Gines Carvajal said to Radio Marca: “He’ll have a chance (to play) in January, wherever he goes. “He needs to go to a place he feels is right for him.” Carvajal does not envision the 33-year-old Spaniard returning to his home country to play. “He won’t be coming to Spain, unless he decides otherwise,” he said. Valdes, a Euro 2012 winner with Spain, becomes a free agent next summer. He is a reported target of Newcastle United, who are looking to strengthen their backline after losing their first-choice goalkeeper Tim Krul to a serious knee injury at the weekend. The Holland international ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during his national team’s 2-1 win against Kazakhstan in Saturday’s Euro 2016 qualifier and has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Valdes has also been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool in recent months. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
