Ramos and Benzema rush to get to Sevilla

first_imgFor its part, Benzema, who in the penultimate training was part of the session with the group, also exercised normally. The Frenchman, who missed the Super Cup tournament in Arabia when he suffered a fibrillar microrrotura during the match against Getafe on January 4, opts to return to the title against the Sevilla players. Precisely, a goal of his in the first round meeting meant the triumph of those of Zidane against those of Lopetegui. With his return, Zizou would be relieved of his problem in attack, since Jovic is also recovered from a rash that occurred in Jeddah. The big victim on this occasion would be Mariano, who after playing in the Super Cup, would fall back into ostracism. Sergio Ramos and Benzema were the two best news of Real Madrid in the last training before Real Madrid receives Sevilla (Saturday 18, 4:00 p.m., Movistar LaLIga). The two players exercised at the same pace as the rest of their teammates, so it will be Zidane who decides if they are summoned and finally play against Sevilla. Those who are totally discarded to face Julen Lopetegui’s team are Marco Asensio and Hazard, who continue with their recovery processes, respectively.center_img For Sergio Ramos, the encounter with his former team is always something special, and more since the last controversies that took place at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium. The captain, who was injured in the final of the Supercup last 12 (sprained his ankle in a fortuitous set with Morata) participated in the typical rounds and in the races that Dupont commands. Of course, it showed a huge blue strip of kinesio tape on his right leg. These strips are used to treat muscle injuries (tears, contractures …), sprains, etc., but the camero made no gesture during the session.last_img read more

Province, City Hall react to budget announcements on infrastructure

first_imgMeantime, Mayor Ackerman says the City doesn’t have any specific project construction plan which right at the moment jumps out as a beneficiary of the change, but she did focus on widening 100 Street as a possibility.Back to Fassbender for a moment, he’s also among those voicing concern about the rising federal deficit, which is now pegged at $30-billion.He says while BC remains committed to budget surpluses, the Trudeau government is willing to go into the red, which we note is something the Canadian Taxpayers Federation is calling a reckless dive into unnecessary deficits and increased public debt. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Province’s Community and Sport Minister Peter Fassbender says the first federal budget from the new Liberal government is ‘a step forward,’ in the cost-sharing arrangement featuring the three levels of government for communities across the country with infrastructure project construction plans.It promises to pay up to 50 per cent for large infrastructure projects, a hike from the one-third cost sharing split set by the former Conservative government.However, the devil could be in the details, and they could vary from province to province.- Advertisement -Fassender has indicated here in B.C. it is likely to be a small benefit.He notes the B.C. government will not budge on its pledge to pay its one-third share, meaning while their share has been reduced, municipalities will still be on the hook for 17 per cent of overall costs.The Minister also says the requirement for a referendum on any new funding initiative also stands.Advertisementlast_img read more
