‘Another club owned by a country’: Klopp questions Saudi takeover at ‘new superpower’ Newcastle & what it means for football

Money cannot buy everything but over time they will have enough money to make a few wrong decisions, then make the right decisions, and then they will be where they want to be in the long term. The Public Investment Fund’s £305 million ($420 million) purchase of an 80% stake in the struggling northeast English outfit has been one of the biggest talking points in the sport.As relayed last weekend, other clubs in the English top flight reportedly felt put out that they had not been consulted on the deal’s progress, and Klopp started off making comments to that extent on Friday.”I was waiting for some official statement from [Premier League CEO Richard] Masters or someone,” Klopp said.🗣️ "A few months ago we had a massive issue with 12 clubs trying to build a Super League… That’s clear. It was good to see them around the training ground. pic.twitter.com/juJHMCKBCi— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) October 15, 2021″Or someone, as there are clearly human rights concerns. “Thank you for the warm welcome you have given us. There’s times this season where I think we’ve played very well. [A] few months ago we have massive arguments over Super League, rightly so,” Klopp continued.”But this is creating a super team if you like. We cannot avoid that. If the takeover takes this great club forward then great." pic.twitter.com/czjyzRfLGR— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) October 15, 2021″If the takeover takes this great club forward then great,” he went on.”It’s not about me,” Bruce also remarked.”It’s about the club going forward, the team and, more importantly, getting a result on Sunday. this is pretty much the same." Jurgen Klopp questions what the Saudi takeover at Newcastle will mean for football, comparing it to the Super League. It’s basically like the Super League now – just for one club.”Newcastle will definitely be able to play a dominant role in world football for the next 20 or 30 years,” Klopp concluded.Newcastle's new owners net worth vs. If we make any changes going forward, Steve will be the first to know but, in the meantime, we wish him the best of luck in his 1,000th match as a manager and will be joining you in getting right behind the team.

Still, that’s the situation.

‘Nothing more connects me with Kyrgyzstan’: UFC fan favorite Fiziev turns back on homeland after ‘religious harassment’

I’m surprised that they even wrote to my wife. Boasting a 10-1 record, the 28-year-old has spent time on the island of Phuket in Thailand, where fighters regularly hone their kickboxing craft, in addition to the US.To his 321,000 followers on Instagram, he regularly shares training content and videos related to his Islamic faith.But his most recent post, on Thursday, was a two-and-a-half minute address where Fiziev announced his intentions to leave Kyrgyzstan.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Rafael Fiziev (@rafael_ataman_fiziev)”Today my family and I faced harassment by the muftiate [a religious body of Islamic jurists] and some well-known people in Kyrgyzstan,” said Fiziev (via translation). “Because of this harassment [and] deceitful videos made for some unknown reason, we received a lot of angry messages.”This is not about tens, but thousands of messages. Why?” he asked, perplexed.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Rafael Fiziev (@rafael_ataman_fiziev)”What do I want to say? That I’ve never been a preacher,” Fiziev continued.”I’m just showing what millions of people are doing on Instagram – showing their lives. “I showed my life, what I do every day. Each person has his own opinion and each person has the right to do everything legal in a secular state. Which is what I did. “But today I received a lot of harassment from the muftiate. Because of this, they put a lot of pressure on me and my family.””For me – that’s it. I’m leaving, nothing more connects me and my family with Kyrgyzstan, only a passport,” Fiziev vowed.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Rafael Fiziev (@rafael_ataman_fiziev)Quickly, the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Kyrgyzstan (SAMK) claimed that they had nothing to do with the decision.”We are engaged in our direct responsibilities, in particular educating the people,” the organization was quoted as saying in a statement, while stressing it would refrain from commenting on remarks made by Fiziev and former Kyrgyzstan mufti Maksatbek Toktomushev.On YouTube, the latter read out a question which asked how Sharia would view Fiziev calling the Iraqi city of Karbala the most sacred after Mecca and Medina, to which Toktomushev replied that despite being an idol in the country, Fiziev should not confuse sport with faith while Central Asian people subscribe to Sunni Islam.”You cannot make such calls, I speak about it openly,” said Toktomushev.”This can lead to interfaith conflict. Therefore, I hope that our athlete will correctly perceive my words and stop his calls.

UFC lightweight contender Rafael Fiziev has taken to Instagram to reveal he plans to leave Kyrgyzstan and stop fighting under its flag following alleged pressure from religious figures in the Central Asian country. “[There is nothing wrong with the fact that he has convictions. If he goes to the Kaaba [at Islam’s most important mosque in Mecca], there will be completely different feelings.”Separately, Fiziev’s first coach Emil Toktogonov has also waded into the row, and called his ex-charge’s decision a “boyish act”.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Эмиль Токтогонов (@emil_toktogonov)”It is felt that today there is no experienced mentor next to him who could lead him not only in sports, but also in such situations,” Toktogonov added.”There is no one who would say: ‘Do not get excited, think carefully.’ “Rafael, even if someone wrote offensive comments to you, these are not all the people of Kyrgyzstan, these are some isolated people. There was no need to give up on the country. “A huge number of Kyrgyzstanis supported and cheered for you. Now they are all upset. Think about it,” Toktogonov insisted.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Rafael Fiziev (@rafael_ataman_fiziev)Last week, Fiziev also made a splash when he questioned Conor McGregor’s high ranking in the UFC despite being 1-3 in his last four outings.”Conor lost so many fights and [he’s] still in the top 10,” he remarked in a Vestnik MMA interview. “When did he last win a fight at lightweight?”View this post on InstagramA post shared by RT Sport (@rtsportnews)Attempting to battle his own way to the top, Fiziev was previously seen in the octagon in August when he won a Fight of the Night bonus while scrapping to a unanimous decision win over Bobby Green at UFC 265.As announced via Instagram, his next bout will take place on December 4 against fellow 10-1 brawler Brad Riddell on a Fight Night card headlined by Rob Font and Jose Aldo.

Moscow no-show: US Open champ Raducanu pulls out of Kremlin Cup after falling flat at first appearance since Grand Slam triumph

I look forward to returning to the Tour in the next couple of weeks,” read a statement from Raducanu explaining her decision.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Emma Raducanu (@emmaraducanu)Following her sensational title win at Flushing Meadows last month – where she became the first qualifier ever to clinch a Grand Slam – Raducanu made a disappointing return to action at Indian Wells. The Brit bowed out at the first hurdle against world number 100 Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus, losing in straight sets 6-2 6-4 in front of an expectant crowd in California. Raducanu had the opportunity to return to winning ways at the WTA 500 indoor event at the Luzhniki Olympic complex in Moscow, but is now expected to take to the court again at the Transylvania Open in her father’s Romanian homeland later this month. Raducanu, 18, was due to take part in the WTA event in the Russian capital where the main draw runs from October 18 to 26.“Unfortunately I’ve had to make a tournament schedule change and won’t be able to play Moscow this year, but I hope to compete there and in front of the Russian fans next year. I think that experience just comes from playing week in, week out and experiencing all these different things,” the Brit explained.“I’m kind of glad that what happened today happened so I can learn and take it as a lesson so going forward I’ll just have more experienced banked.”

US boxing great Claressa Shields has earned a mixed reaction after announcing she is “disappointed” that the latest incarnation of Superman is bisexual, warning that it is “confusing kids” and “pushing an agenda”.

Wilder congratulates Fury as he breaks his silence on epic KO defeat – but footage shows him snubbing Brit after the fight (VIDEO)

“You got beaten fair and square tonight,” the ‘Gypsy King’ told his battered victim. Follow RT on

Deontay Wilder has applauded Tyson Fury in his first words since their epic fight, speaking out as fans watched footage of him shunning the champ after the contest. Your mind isn’t there,” he suggested. He’s got a bad hatred towards me, I don’t know why.”Let me tell you, he lost like a man tonight. “After the fight you come back to your corner, you have a broken hand, you’re disoriented. Although I wanted the win, I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more. His manager has also claimed he hadn’t been fully healthy. In the clip from the immediate aftermath of the memorable showdown, towering Englishman Fury can be seen approaching Wilder as he sits on his stool attempting to regain his senses following his clobbering 11th-round knockout.An abundance of bad blood had flown between the pair since Fury first knocked Wilder out in February 2020, with frequent exchanges of insults over the American’s decision to brandish a range of excuses, including outlandish claims of sabotage efforts from his own team and glove-loading by his opponent.While even the most bitter of rivals tend to temporarily put their differences aside after contests, Wilder appeared to be in no mood to relent on the ammunition he has gifted to those who had accused him of being a sore loser in the build-up."I don't respect you." – Deontay Wilder to Tyson Fury post fight 👀pic.twitter.com/6HsSiMtLAL— Chamatkar Sandhu (@SandhuMMA) October 14, 2021″No love,” muttered the feared puncher, shaking his head in a dazed state before being taken to hospital.

Hopefully, we proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations, you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in.”Last but not least, I would like to congratulate [Fury] for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”The Brit responded to the post-fight footage by commenting: “Respect and sportsmanship. He put me down three times, I put him down four; great heavyweight fight.”🤝 The greatest trilogy of all time. “I don’t respect you.”Fury was suitably unimpressed. Also on rt.com

‘This is real’: Fans baffled as Haaland pulls off astonishing 3-ball stunt… but footage appears to show how it was faked (VIDEO)

He did a real kick and really hit the target – or a different green screen take or angle – and stitched it all together,” claimed one analyst.”It is really basic video editing.” View this post on InstagramA post shared by Football • Futbol • Soccer (@tekkers)As many have been quick to highlight, the controversy has echoes of the Ronaldinho crossbar challenge.In his mid-2000s heyday at Barcelona, the Brazilian was captured by sponsor Nike supposedly smacking the ball off the woodwork four times while not letting it drop once as he performed kick-ups between each hit. Balancing the ball on his head like a sealion, critics found it comical that the World Cup winner managed to hit his target each time from distance, with the ball fell mysteriously falling perfectly into his path every time.

‘We have to pressure them’: Hockey chief wants new rules in Ukraine after black player leaves club over banned star’s monkey taunt

By calling on the Ethics Committee, this shows that I think we could go further in respect to the sanctions.”I will let the committees come to a decision, but I don’t want to stop there. No. My voice has been ignored in the decision over the penalty against Andrei Deniskin, who showed a racist gesture to Jalen Smereck.”I am publicly appealing to the IIHF to conduct its own investigation of the incident and help end racism. Will it silence me? @IIHFHockey needs to step up here. No. Thank you.”The UHL’s former General Manager, Evgeny Kolychev, announced Deniskin’s punishment in a supportive message to Smereck on Twitter before claiming he had been fired for speaking up on racism in the domestic game.”The Ukrainian Hockey League and I stand with Jalen Smereck and thank all of the fans and media who have offered their support to him,” Kolychev said in his initial message. Federation president Luc Tardif has revealed that the Ethics Committee he oversees is looking into a scandal that erupted in the Ukrainian Hockey League (UHL) last month.HC Kremenchuk forward Andrei Deniskin was caught on camera mimicking the peeling of a banana and then eating the imaginary fruit in the direction of African American Jalen Smereck, who has since left HC Donbass.Smereck had announced that he would take a leave of absence until Deniskin had been suspended and removed by the league, but the American had his contract terminated by mutual consent at the weekend and has since joined German side the Bietigheim Steelers, with Deniskin apologizing and receiving a 13-game ban.A disgusting gesture in the UHL was made towards American Jalen Smereck… This is embarrassing and pathetic for hockey. pic.twitter.com/cSqxBKVC4k— World Hockey Report (@worldhockeyrpt) September 26, 2021″During the match, I, being of negative emotions, displayed a gesture that could be considered as an insult [relating to] race,” Deniskin said in an apology.”I respect all people regardless of their race or nationality.
