Milan Sack Marco Giampaolo After Only 9 Points In 7 Serie A Matches

Published

on

AC Milan

Milan have officially sacked Marco Giampaolo and are expected to replace him with former Fiorentina and Inter boss Stefano Pioli.

Four defeats in the opening seven rounds, and deeply unconvincing wins over Brescia, Hellas Verona, and Genoa, were not enough to keep Giampaolo in the role.

“AC Milan announce that Marco Giampaolo has been removed from the post of the first-team Coach. The club wishes to thank Marco for the work done and wish him all the best in his professional career.”

Giampaolo only replaced Gennaro Gattuso in the Rossoneri’s hot seat over the summer, having spent the past three seasons establishing Sampdoria as a Serie A team.

However, four defeats in his first seven League games were exacerbated by poor performances and a lack of supporter confidence.

The ex-Sampdoria Coach also came under fire for scrapping his famed 4-3-1-2 formation after just one match.

The Diavolo hoped to bring in Luciano Spalletti, but Inter were unable to agree on a severance package with the Coach.

As a result, Milan has moved for Pioli, who is likely to put pen to paper on a one-year contract with the option of a second.

He is widely considered an underwhelming choice, given he failed with Inter and has not won any senior silverware in 16 years as a Coach.

He Is Using American Military Against American People : Joe Biden Slams Donald Trump

Published

on

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has reacted to President Donald Trump’s threat of using soldiers to stop the violent protests which erupted across cities in the United States after the death of George Floyd in police custody.

The US President made the threat in a nationally televised address in the White House Rose Garden. Trump said;

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”

Though the comment was an apparent reference to the 1807 Insurrection Act which allows presidents to quell lawlessness during emergencies, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden condemned the US President’s threat via a tweet he shared.

Biden who announced in a campaign statement that he would speak on Tuesday morning in Philadelphia “on the civil unrest facing communities across America”, accused the US President of using the American military against the American people.

He tweeted;

He’s using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo. For our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him. But I mean it when I say this: we can only do it together.

The 1807 Insurrection Act was most recently used in 1992 amid rioting in Los Angeles after another African-American man, Rodney King was beaten by police.

Bishop Mariann Budde, the leader of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington has also expressed her disapproval of Trump’s threat. She tweeted;

Tonight President [sic] just used a Bible and a church of my diocese as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our church stands for. To do so, he sanctioned the use of tear gas by police officers in riot gear to clear the church yard.

The President did not come to pray; he did not lament the death of George Floyd or acknowledge the collective agony of people of color in our nation. He did not attempt to heal or bring calm to our troubled land.

The Bible teaches us to love God and our neighbor; that all people are beloved children of God; that we are to do justice and love kindness. The President used our sacred text as a symbol of division.

We are followers of Jesus. In no way do we support the President’s incendiary response to a wounded, grieving nation. We stand with those seeking justice for the death of George Floyd through the sacred act of peaceful protest.

Congressman Adam Smith, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee also said in a statement;

President Trump’s decision to invoke the Insurrection Act, and his inflammatory rhetoric, proves that he cannot lead us through these tumultuous times and unite the country. Instead, he has decided to rely on the use of force to address those who he views as a threat

His comment comes after President Akufo-Addo review measures he had adopted to ease the ban on social gatherings which were imposed as part of measures to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 in Ghana.

The President in his recent address revealed: “Twenty-five per cent (25%) attendance, with a maximum number of one hundred (100) congregants, can worship at a time in church or at the mosque, with a mandatory one-metre rule of social distancing between congregants.”
