Look How It Looks InsideYour Money MagicUndo THE EU’S markets chief accused London banks of blackmailing the union with threats to move abroad in the face of bonus curbs yesterday. Michel Barnier, who made his first appearance in front of the Treasury select committee yesterday, said the EU’s new guidelines calling for bankers to get just 20 per cent of bonus payments in cash would not spark an exodus from the City. “I very much doubt there will be a flight of talent towards Asia or elsewhere,” said Barnier. “I would not be overly impressed by the blackmail exerted in which this kind of risk is mentioned.”Barnier spoke at the committee after pressure from its chairman, Andrew Tyrie, who wanted more information on the powers of ESMA, the EU’s new banking super-regulator.

The Red Sox aren’t taking any chances when it comes to the coronavirus. The team has quarantined right-handed pitching prospect Chih-Jung Liu after he traveled from Taiwan to their spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla., according to The Boston Globe.It’s the second time this month the organization has quarantined a player in response to the outbreak of the virus. Infielder Tzu-Wei Lin, also from Taiwan, was the first. “I had been here for a week and they said I needed to go back to my apartment,” Lin told The Globe. “I was fine. I stayed away for one day and that was it.”MORE: Coronavirus could potentially cause NHL stick shortageAccording to the Globe, Liu, 20, does not have any symptoms of the virus. He wrote on his Facebook page that the Red Sox are providing him with three meals per day. He is reportedly passing time in his hotel room by reading, weight training and going on an “occasional run.”The 6-0, 185-pound pitcher signed with the team in October as an international free agent, per SoxProspects.com. He received a $750,000 signing bonus. Liu said he feels fine and is scheduled to join the team on Saturday.The Red Sox’s decision to quarantine prospects comes amid new warnings from federal health officials about the virus spreading throughout the United States. The CDC announced Tuesday that Americans should brace for a potential pandemic.“It’s not so much of a question of if this will happen in this country anymore but a question of when this will happen — and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.”Currently, there are 57 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Taiwan has 31.The virus is believed to have originated from a wildlife market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019. It has infected about 80,000 people and killed more than 2,700, the vast majority in China.
(Reuters) – Premier League strugglers, West Ham United, are set to reappoint David Moyes as their new head coach to replace the sacked Manuel Pellegrini, Sky Sports and the BBC reported on Sunday.Chilean Pellegrini was sacked after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at home by Leicester City, their ninth loss in 12 league games that left the London side 17th in the standings — one point above the relegation zone.It would be Moyes’ second stint with West Ham after he saved the club from relegation in the 2017-18 campaign during a six-month deal.He was hired by West Ham in November 2017 to replace Slaven Bilic with the London side in the relegation zone and the Scotsman led them to a 13th-placed finish to ensure the club’s survival in the top flight.However, the club chose not to renew his contract and hired Manchester City’s former title-winning manager Pellegrini in the off season last year, who led West Ham to a 10th-placed finish last season.If appointed, Moyes’ first game in charge will be at home against 16th-placed Bournemouth on Wednesday.
