Di Francesco laments referee decisions

first_imgAS Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco believes that they were unfortunate with the decisions that were taken against them in their semi-final defeat to Liverpool in the Champions LeagueThe Giallorossi won the second leg at their Stadio Olimpico 4-2 on Wednesday night but were ultimately unable to overturn their three-goal deficit from the first leg this time around with Roma narrowly losing 7-6 on aggregate to Liverpool in what was their first semi-final appearance in the competition since 1984.But, while admitting that they made things difficult for themselves with the first goal, Di Francesco was left to ponder what might of happened had the match officials not made any “human errors” while wrongly ruling Edin Dzeko for offside and then later denying Roma a clear penalty when Trent Alexander-Arnold handled Stephan El Shaarawy’s shot in the box.“In the two games, Liverpool showed that they are a great team. In the second half, they were in a lot of difficulties. We complicated life for ourselves, especially with the first goal.” said the Italian, according to AS.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…On the possible penalty decision: “We’ll see on the television. The guys said that Dzeko wasn’t offside. There is not much collaboration between the referees. At the same time, they are human errors, they can get things wrong.”While disappointed to have not reached the final, Di Francesco hailed the effort of his players during the competition.“We took the symbolic chocolate medal. It’s been a long time since this team got this far. I want to always see my guys giving everything in the difficult moments like they have done.” added the Roma coach.last_img read more

Jermain Defoe not afraid to move to Serie A

first_imgBournemouth striker Jermain Defoe said he wouldn’t have been scared to move to Serie A when Juventus were interested in signing him in 2009.Defoe who was then at Portsmouth would eventually leave Fratton Park to return for a second spell at Tottenham, but not before the Italian giants had expressed their intent to sign him, according to Sky Sport.“When I left Tottenham and went to Portsmouth with Harry (Redknapp), I was there for a season and then Harry got the Tottenham job.“It was weird because I just knew it was going happen. It made sense because of the relationship I had with the club and the fans.“There was speculation and at one point I thought: ‘Yeah, this is going to happen’. Both clubs were speaking. As a player you just want the two clubs to get on with it. I wanted permission to speak to Tottenham.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“I remember being at home and sitting there for a few days and just waiting for the deal to get done. I knew it was close.“Then, I got a phone call from someone to say that Juventus were interested. Obviously, I wanted to go back to Tottenham but I thought maybe the Tottenham one was not going to happen.“Nothing really scares me. It is just another massive club, you go there, you play and you score goals. It is as simple as that.“When the Tottenham one got done it was a relief. Some places just feel like home. It was the perfect move for me.”last_img read more

Mobile food bank could use drivers with trucks

first_imgWith an 8 percent increase in business so far this year, the Lewis River Mobile Food Bank is looking for some help collecting and delivering food.Unlike other pantries, it brings food to people in a 17-foot trailer, with four stops each month at different north county sites.The group needs volunteer drivers with trucks that can pull the full trailer, which is a 7,000-pound load, said food bank organizer Candice Howell. They also need similar help when it’s time to pick up donated food.The 8 percent boost over the first five months is reflected in a tally of 1,668 clients and 35,000 pounds of food, Howell said.Cuts in the SNAP program, unemployment, high gas prices and rising food costs mean all Clark County food pantries are seeing increases in their clientele, she said.The normal monthly food distribution schedule, from 2 to 4 p.m. at all sites:• First Sundays: View Fire Station, 37604 N.E. 119th Ave., La Center;• Second Sundays: Fire District 2 station, 314 N.W. 389th St., La Center;• Third Sundays: Yacolt Evangelical Free Church, 509 W.
