PSG chief Henrique casts suspicion on Barcelona over Rabiot behaviourby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the lovePSG chief Antero Henrique has hit out at Barcelona over their attempts to sign Adrien Rabiot.Rabiot has been banished to the stands for refusing to consider new contract talks at PSG, where his current deal expires in June.Henrique suspects the influence of Barca and snapped: “Mrs. Rabiot said that we had received an offer this summer. That’s right, a bid on August 29, twenty hours before the end of the transfer window. “It is then simple: Barcelona first had to reach an agreement with Rabiot before we were being talked to. And you also need to know that the Barcelona offer was ridiculous.”We, the club, were surprised by the low bid. It was disrespectful for someone with the status of Rabiot. I continue to emphasise: it is not possible to reach agreement within 24 hours on a player like Rabiot. It seems clear to me that Barcelona already had an agreement with Adrien. “I’m sure he has an agreement with another club anyway. Whether he can leave in the winter? He told me he does not want to stay.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
LOS ANGELES, CA – DECEMBER 03: head coach John Calipari of the Kentucky Wildcats reacts to a foul against his team during the first half against the UCLA Bruins at Pauley Pavilion on December 3, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Kentucky pulled out a big win at LSU tonight to push its record to 24-0, but if you believe John Calipari, there were times tonight when he would have welcomed 23-1. Karl-Anthony Towns’ was called for a technical for hanging on the rim midway through the second half, which led to this amazing post-game moment on ESPN. As much fun as that videobomb is, Calipari was livid about the foul, at that point in the game. In the interview he said that he told the team that he hoped they would lose after the foul, and reiterated that point to open his post-game press conference. Calipari goes on to praise his talented freshman as a player and a person, but clearly this mistake, which could have proven incredibly costly in what wound up being a two point game, really bothered him.Kentucky hosts South Carolina this Saturday at 2 p.m.
Rutgers is in control of its season opener today, leading FCS Norfolk State 42-13 in the third quarter in Piscataway. It’s been a rough week for the Scarlet Knights, with five players arrested and later dismissed, and four more players suspended for the first half of today’s game. One of the players punished for the first half was quarterback Chris Laviano, who spent the entire off-season in a battle for the starting job with LSU transfer Hayden Rettig. Laviano’s suspension, for breaking curfew and using a fake ID, made Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood’s decision easy, as Rettig started this afternoon and played well in the first half. He completed 9-of-11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown and rushed for another score. Somewhat surprisingly, Flood elected to begin the second half with Laviano under center. It’s a choice that seems to indicate Laviano originally won the competition and Rettig only started because of circumstance. Or maybe Flood just wanted give both guys a shot. Whatever the reasoning, former Rutgers quarterback Ryan Hart was not happy with the move. Twitter/ @RyanHart13Hart played for the Scarlet Knights from 2002-05. During his senior season, Flood was an assistant under Greg Schiano. He subsequently tweeted that he still supported the embattled coach despite the decision, but he clearly did not approve of it.For what it’s worth, Laviano has connected with wide receiver Leonte Carroo for a pair of third-quarter touchdowns. Looks like there could be a QB controversy in New Jersey.
