Both players will play in the Qatari Stars League with centre-back Flores linking up with former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup at champions Lekhwiya and midfielder Hernandez joining Al-Arabi. Both transfers are subject to international clearance but the moves will end two-year spells for the Spaniards at the Liberty Stadium. Press Association Swansea have confirmed the departures of Spanish pair Chico Flores and Pablo Hernandez for undisclosed fees. Chico, 25, made 75 appearances for Swansea after signing from Italian club Genoa and helped the club to Capital One Cup trophy success in 2013. “It feels like I am leaving my family,” Chico said. “I have really enjoyed my time here. When we won the cup it was one of the best moments in my career.” Hernandez, 29, was signed for a club record £5.55million from Valencia in August 2012. He made 57 appearances for Swansea but his time in South Wales was often interrupted by injury. Swansea hope to fill the loss of Chico by signing Federico Fernandez from Napoli and they are currently holding talks over personal terms with the Argentina centre-half having agreed a fee understood to be over £7m.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay today condemned the execution of Sri Lankan housemaid Rizana Nafeek in Saudi Arabia.Rizana Nafeek, who arrived in Saudi Arabia from Sri Lanka to work as a housemaid in 2005, was charged with the murder of her employers’ baby a week after her arrival. Despite a birth certificate that allegedly showed she was a minor at the time of the baby’s death and repeated expressions of concern from the international community, she was convicted of murder, sentenced to death and beheaded. “We are deeply troubled by reports of irregularities in her detention and trial, including that no lawyer was present to assist her in key stages of her interrogation and trial, that language interpretation was poor, and Ms Nafeek’s contention that she was physically assaulted and forced to sign a confession under duress,” Rupert Colville, the spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said. On 1 November 2010, the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heyns, sent an urgent appeal in connection with Ms. Nafeek’s case. In June 2007, his predecessor Philip Alston had already raised concerns about the imposition of the death penalty for an alleged crime committed when Ms Nafeek was still below eighteen years of age.*“We note with great concern the sharp increase in the use of capital punishment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 2011. The High Commissioner strongly supports the global movement away from the death penalty. She was pleased that a clear majority of Member States (111) recently voted for General Assembly resolution 67/176, which calls for a moratorium on the death penalty. We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to join the growing world’s movement away from the death penalty,” Colville said.
Off the field, Pogba has attracted criticism for spending too much time on social media and frequently changing his hairstyle than concentrating on his football.However, he shone for France in Russia, often sacrificing the attacking side of his game for the good of the team, before scoring in the final against Croatia.“The rest of the world had an image of Pogba which didn’t really reflect who he is,” Deschamps told FIFA’s coaching conference to review the World Cup on Sunday.”He’s always thinking about the collective.“There is an image of him that he is very individualistic, a bit self-centred, but that’s not the true Paul at all.”Pogba’s importance as a leader of the French side was revealed in a behind the scenes documentary, which showed the prominent role he took during a team talk at half-time in the final.“He prepared to win. He took on the mantle of leadership both on and off the pitch. He took on the role of spokesman, he can do that because he is a good speaker,” added Deschamps, who believes Pogba is now more calm when it comes to dealing with press scrutiny of his performances.“You can be criticised, the press can be tough on you. Once you take that on board, I think you can become more calm. He has taken that on board and it has had an impact on him on and off the pitch.“I think it gave him some respect, and that respect he has gained on the field has also had an impact on him as a person.”Deschamps is the heavy favourite to win the award for FIFA’s best coach of the year at an award ceremony in London on Monday.However, no Frenchman is in the running for the best player prize as Cristiano Ronaldo faces competition from Croatia and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric and Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah to win FIFA’s world player of the year for the sixth time.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000France coach Didier Deschamps believes Paul Pogba is more of a team player than he is given credit for © AFP / FRANCK FIFELONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 23 – France manager Didier Deschamps believes the outside world has the wrong image of Paul Pogba, who played a key role in leading Les Bleus to winning the World Cup.At club level the Manchester United midfielder hasn’t lived up to expectations since his then world record £89 million ($116 million) move from Juventus in 2016, although his performances have picked up in recent weeks.
