Breach of protocol: GFL hammer Manuel Akanji and Jadon Sancho

first_img While Akanji appeared to have taken the punishment in its stride an apparently angry Sancho took to his twitter to reveal what he thought of the news that he would be receiving a fine. Akanji and Sancho raised dust with their haircuts without protection Dortmund though in support of players having haircuts if they so desire, the club however insists that observing the Covid rules is inevitable. ‘It is pretty common that our guys must get their hair cut after all these months,’ Dortmund said ‘But it surely is a no-go, from both sides, to not wear a mask. We will remind our players about that very, very clearly. Also: the stylist should ask himself about his behaviour, too.’ Akanji, who was born to a Swiss mother and a Swiss-Nigerian father transferred to Borussia Dortmund on 15 January 2018 from Basel for 18 million euros.

Nigeria born Swiss international Manuel Akanji was slammed with undisclosed fine on Friday for what the German Football Federation GFL dubbed Covid-19 lockdown breach of protocol. Also hammered along with Akanji was Borussia Dortmund team-mate and England international Jadon Sancho who only few days ago graced all the headlines after lifting his shirt in condemnation of treatment meted on late George Floyd. Akanji and Sancho were hammered after photos emerged of them having a trim in their own respective homes, with neither the players nor the celebrity hairdresser wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE) in the pictures. Sancho described his fine as a huge joke after breaching Covid-19 protection protocol A statement from the German league (DFL read: ‘The DFL has fined Manuel Akanji and Jadon Sancho. ‘The players from Borussia Dortmund had obviously violated general hygiene and infection protection standards at home hairdressing appointments and in particular the medical-organisational concept of the DFL task force. ‘There is no question that professional footballers also have to have their hair cut. However, this currently has to be done in accordance with the medical-organisational concept.’ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading…last_img read more


Marvellous result for mighty Moore

first_img Ballydoyle number one jockey Joseph O’Brien opted to partner eventual fifth Palace, allowing the all-conquering Moore to team up with the 10-1 chance, who was running for only the third time having finished sixth in the Leopardstown trial on March 30. The Olly Stevens-trained Lightning Thunder, narrowly beaten by Miss France in the Newmarket equivalent, went off the 100-30 favourite and led going into the final furlong, but she could not cope with the winner’s late surge and went down by three lengths. Ryan Moore was full of praise for Marvellous after the Aidan O’Brien-trained filly provided the jockey with a first victory in the Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh. Another Ballydoyle contender, Wonderfully, made the running and Marvellous still had plenty of work to do when Harry Bentley swept to the lead with a couple of furlongs remaining on the market leader, but her stamina came into the equation as O’Brien captured the prize for the sixth time in his career. James Doyle, who won Saturday’s Irish 2,000 Guineas on Kingman, finished third aboard the Dermot Weld-trained Vote Often. Moore said: “You have to be very pleased, it was only her third run, in deep ground. She was drawn towards the outside and was a long way back. She had to do it the hard way, she passed nearly the whole field and you’d have to say it was a really good performance. “I was taken off my feet after a furlong and couldn’t really hold my spot. When I asked her, she picked up, I think she was just pretty inexperienced during the race. She should get further but you never know with these things. I’m sure she’d be a better filly on nicer ground.” O’Brien added: ” She handled this sort of ground when she won her maiden at Navan last year. She then had the one run this year at Leopardstown and had a bit of a break after that as, like a lot of mine, she was coughing a bit. “Joseph had a tough choice and he knew it was a close call, but at declaration time we didn’t think it was going to get as soft as this. “With Marvellous, the plan was to come here and then on to Epsom. You’d have to say she’d definitely get a mile and a quarter the way she ran to the line. She’s a nice, compact filly and I don’t think she’d have any problems handling Epsom.” The man who calls the shots is part-owner John Magnier, who said: “Aidan fancied her. In fact, I think he even asked Joseph to ride her and Joseph picked the other one. “Her pedigree would indicate there’s could be more to come to come, she’s out of a sister to Giant’s Causeway who won the Cherry Hinton. She’s really well bred and probably bred to get a mile and a half. We’ll have to listen to what they all say over the next few days, but I couldn’t see any reason why not (run in the Oaks) if all goes well.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
