New York police arrest 25 at immigration protest in Trump Tower

NEW YORK ( ) – New York police on Thursday arrested 25 people in the lobby of Trump Tower protesting U.S. President Donald Trump’s immigration and border policies.

The demonstrators who sat in front of the elevators and chanted “no ban, no raids, no wall!” led security forces to close public accesses to the president’s signature property, a commercial and residential skyscraper where first lady Melania Trump and son Barron Trump stay while the president is in Washington.

As heavily armed police wearing ballistic vests stood guard blocking the entrances, other officers carried the protesters to police vans.

The building in the heart of the Fifth Avenue shopping district was also home to Trump’s campaign and has been his primary residence for years. The lobby is open to the public, though security was tightened as the 2016 campaign progressed and he was elected president.

Charges were pending, a police said in a statement.

The demonstrators wore T-shirts with slogans such as “No wall,” in reference to上海夜生活网 Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico, and “No raids,” referring to U.S. arrests of suspected undocumented immigrants.

“No ban” refers to Trump’s executive orders seeking to restrict immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.

Gracia honoured to be a Watford coach

Javi Gracia, the new Watford coach, admitted that it is a big honour for him to be given this big chance to prove himself in the Premier League as he was chosen as the replacement of Marco Silva.

Watford decided to sack Silva as he was able to win just one match out of his side’s last 11 games and the Hornets are really close to the relegation zone right now – which is the thing that Gracia is expected to change immediately. The Spaniard was most recently the head coach of Rubin Kazan, the Russian side, and he signed the deal until 2019.

The former Malaga coach spoke about his feelings after being appointed as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I feel like I have been here many months. I feel happy, comfortable. I feel that this is like a family. This is an important step in my career. It was a dream. Not only as a coach, but as a professional player. The fans want to win matches. If you win playing well, it is better.”Top 5 Real Madrid players who are succeeding on a loan Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – We need to talk about the Top 5 Real Madrid players who are currently succeeding away from the club and are currently on a…

He continued by adding that his main goal is to avoid the relegation: “In this moment, after 11 matches without a win, they want to win a match and get the points to play in the Premier League next season. The principal target is to remain in the Premier League.”

In the end, Javi Gracia insisted that he doesn’t want to make any statements about his goals in the transfer window and he is looking forward to having the injured players back: “In this moment I am worried because we have many players injured and the most important thing for me now is to recover these players. The tr上海夜网ansfer window is open at this moment but I don’t mind about this. I prefer to try to recover players and make a team.”

Kane: Alli thrives on jeers

The captain of Spurs and the Three Lions insisted that his team-mate is only taking positives from the crowd abuse he receives.

Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane believes that Dele Alli is the best when playing under the radar of the crowd. The English midfielder was jeered throughout the whole game as Spurs won 3-0 against Burnley on Saturday, with Alli making a rather reckless tackle early on, but receiving just a yellow card. To make things worse, the Spurs player won a penalty with what appeared to be a dive, which frustrated the Clarets’ fans even more.

However, Alli was not affected by the fact t上海夜生活论坛hat he was targeted by the crowd, and his team-mate Harry Kane insists that the midfielder only thrives on the jeers from the fans.

“I think it makes him play better,” Kane said as quoted by Goal. “You saw him against Burnley – I thought it was fantastic. He fed off the crowd.

“He was the pantomime villain out there but he got two assists – the penalty and my third goal. That’s when he’s at his best. Hopefully he continues like that.Berbatov: It’s not the right time for Pochettino to move George Patchias – Dimitar Berbatov doesn’t think it’s the right time for Mauricio Pochettino to leave Tottenham Hotspurs or for him to join the likes of Madrid…

“Dele was great. He was aggressive – we were all aggressive and that’s what we said [before the game]. We had to come out, press, make runs behind, be aggressive and brave with the ball. That’s what happened and we deserved to win.

Kane then proceeded to defend Alli, insisting that he is not only a great player, but also a great person, rubbishing the claims that the Englishman dived to win a penalty against Burnley.

“He’s a great person and he’s a great player. He’s got that aggressive side to him and that’s what makes him who he is.

“I don’t think he stepped over the mark at all against Burnley. I think the penalty was definitely a penalty, but of course away from home you always get fans getting on someone’s back and it was Dele [that time].

Mata doesn’t consider the Bristol defeat to be a tragedy

Juan Mata insis上海夜生活ted that his teammates and he have to move on and forget about their latest 2-1 defeat to Bristol City in the Carabao Cup match –  and the Spaniard doesn’t consider it to be a tragedy.

Korey Smith scored in the dying minuted to give a surprising win to the home side – and Manchester United were stunned by the performance of Bristol City away from home. Mata admitted that it was a huge disappointment for him and his side but he insisted that they need to focus on the upcoming matches and try to have a successful season in the end.

The former Chelsea and Valencia player spoke about this painful defeat as he said, according to Sky Sports: “When you play for a club like Manchester United every defeat is a massive blow for everyone. For the fans, for you but especially for us. We suffer when we don’t win because there’s such a high standard in this football club to try and win every game.”Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

He continued by adding that they want to win every single game but it’s just impossible: “But we need to understand that defeat is part of sport and part of football and it can happen so it’s not a tragedy. It’s not good at all, but we need to move on and accept it as a part of football and keep moving. Obviously, we would like to win every single game and we would like to try to do so until the end of the season.”

In the end, Juan Mata insisted that there is still a lot to fight for this season: “It was a competition that we won in February, it was a good way to face the start of the season lifting that trophy at Wembley. We haven’t been able to do it this season but we need to move on and we have other competitions to play for. Hopefully, we can still go to Wembley in the FA Cup, we are playing in the Champions League where we play Seville and there’s still many games to go.”

Pastore doesn’t want to leave PSG

Argentina international Javier Pastore claimed he is “not thinking about a transfer”, despite possibly not getting enough playing time to become a regular starter for his country next year in Russia

Javier Pastore has fallen down the pecking order at Parc des Princes, but claims he doesn’t want to move from Paris Saint-Germain.

Although the midfielder said he doesn’t think about leaving the French club in January, Pastore admitted he needs to play more to be in Argentina’s squad for next year’s World Cup.

The 28-year-old moved to Paris from Palermo before the 2011-2012 Ligue 1 season had started and was one of the first big names PSG signed after the club’s Quatari revolution.

The playmaker’s first 4 years were successful in Paris, however, he has been struggling to become a regular starter since 2015 due to injuries and inconsistent performances.

This season the Argentine has featured in 7 of PSG’s 13 Ligue 1 games and started in only four of them.Report: Icardi opens PSG account in 0-1 win over Gala George Patchias – Mauro Icardi opened his goal-scoring account for PSG in a 0-1 away victory over Galatasaray.While Thomas Tuchel has begun to integrate Mauro Icardi into…

The 28-year-old knows he needs to play more ahead of t上海夜生活he World Cup but says he doesn’t see a reason to leave Unai Emery’s team.

“I think it’s normal that I player wants to play all the time, but it’s the coach’s decision,” Pastore told reporters.

“If I can play as I did [against Nantes] then I’ll be fine. I also need to try not to have any more injuries.”

“I want to go to the World Cup, but if the boss sees I’m not playing then it’ll be difficult for him to pick me,” he added.

“But I’m not thinking about a transfer. I want to give my best for the club.”

The midfielder has been linked with Sevilla, but when asked whether he would join the Spanish side if he were to leave, he replied: “It’s more likely that I’ll go to Italy.”

Christensen on Chelsea’s loan system

Andreas Christensen says he likes Chelsea’s loan system, as it contributes to the development of young talents

The Denmark international believes it is crucial that youngsters find the “perfect environment” to improve their skills and become the best version of themselves.

Andreas Christensen has talked up the pathways into Chelsea’s first team via their stockpiled youth ranks as domestic-based Blues fans look for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham to make the grade at Stamford Bridge, GOAL reports.

Both Abraham and Loftus-Cheek made their debuts for England in the international break, as they have impressed Gareth Southgate with their performan上海夜生活网ces on loan at Crystal Palace and Swansea City.

Many feared that Loftus-Cheek couldn’t develop himself at a speed he should have, as the 21-year-old midfielder didn’t really have a breakthrough performance for Chelsea.

However, a stunning international bow against Brazil has raised hopes of his ability to cut it at the highest level, GOAL continues.Top 5 Premier League players in September’s last weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – A fresh Premier League fixture just ended, which means we can talk about the Top 5 best players of September’s last weekend.After a fresh…

The Denmark international has spent two years on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach before he returned to London, where he is now a regular first-team player under Antonio Conte this season.

Christensen sees no reason why other talented young lads can’t walk the same path as he did.

“It’s different for every player,” the Danish told Sky Sports. “I was in the right place at the right time, everything just clicked, and it was perfect for me.”

“That’s the most important thing for the players that go out on loan. They have to find what’s working for them and the perfect environment for them to develop,” he added.

“When I was on loan I took the opportunity to come back to London sometimes to watch the games and go into the dressing room after so everyone knew what was happening with my career which was a good feeling,” Christensen concluded.

Pogba believes in Manchester United

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba claims he would stop playing if he thought his side were unable to win the Premier League title this year

Despite their 8-point deficit to local rivals Manchester City, United still have a shot at the league title, claims Pogba.

The French midfielder returned to Old Trafford after being out for two months due to an injury he picked up against Basel in September.

Jose Mourinho’s men were not playing to the best of their knowledge without Pogba, but now that he returned, the Red Devils have defeated Newcastle United in a 4-1 game.

Despite Guardiola’s men looking unstoppable sometimes, Pogba has refused to write off his club’s chances.

“The season is very long, of course. If I don’t believe that, I’d stop playing,” Pogba told BBC Sport, when asked whether he believes in United’s chances.

“If I don’t believe we can still win the league, I better stop. I’ll leave my boots and stop playing football cause I’m a believer we keep figh上海夜网ting,” he added.

Pogba’s successful return wasn’t the only good news for the Red Devils in the victory as Romelu Lukaku found the back of the net for the first time in the Premier League since a win over Crystal Palace on September 30, GOAL reports.

Pogba was happy to serve his team-mate with an assist once again and went on to praise Lukaku’s abilities.

“I come back and Romelu scores again? I like that,” the Frenchman added.

“We’ve got a lot of good players, a lot of talented players. We have to trust each other.”

The midfielder said the Belgian striker is the best in England, and United had never doubted that.

“Romelu is the best striker in the Premier League. We know his quality. We know everything. We don’t worry about him.”

“And at the end, we see the result,” Pogba concluded.

Conte: City a big problem

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte says stopping Manchester City will be difficult this year

Last year, Chelsea destroyed anyone standing in their way, which resulted in the Blues winning their second title in three seasons. However, this year they face an incredibly strong opponent in Pep Guardiola’s men.

Manchester City are unbeaten so far this season, after 10 Premier League games already in the books. Their closest competitors are l上海夜网ocal rivals, Manchester United. Mourinho’s side are 5 points behind City, while Chelsea are 9 points away from the league leaders.

In Chelsea’s pre-game conference ahead of their clash against Manchester United, Antonio Conte emphasized the problem Manchester City poses to them, being so dominant this year.

“But I think that, now, there is a big problem for all the teams that want to fight for the title, and this big problem is Manchester City.”

“Because, if Manchester City continue in this way, I think this is the big problem for all the teams who are thinking about fighting for the title,” he continued.Wijnaldum looking to repeat Champions League success Nedim Maric – Liverpool are the reigning winners of the Champions League. However, this isn’t stopping them for aiming to get the glory once again.After a perfect…

Conte was asked whether City can maintain their form and the coach replied: “I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t know.”

“Until now, though, they are having a fantastic path. A fantastic path. If they continue in this way, it will be very difficult for all the teams to try and fight for the title until the end,” he added.

As GOAL reports, Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by City at Stamford Bridge in September to crank up the pressure against United, but Conte says his players must embrace the challenge of facing the league’s elite.

“I think when you play against Manchester United, City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham… I think it’s always a big game,” the coach said.

He believes playing in an atmosphere like that must be exciting, and players know everyone’s eyes are on them in such a big game.

“I think this type of game must excite the players, to play in a fantastic atmosphere, to play and to know that a lot of people will watch the game in the whole world. Yes. I think it’s a really big game.”

Depay: I will always be a risk-taker

Memphis Depay said he will forever be a risk-taker and his priorities are goals and assists, not defending

Lyon were beaten in this fixture last season, with the winger having a shocker, but the Dutchman will not play it safe this time around, GOAL reports.

The 23-year-old Depay made clear what his priorities are, saying he can’t be expected to excel defensively.

The Dutch winger has already scored 7 goals in 14 games this season, contributing to Lyon’s fight for a Champions League spot in Ligue 1.

Les Gones have won their last 5 games ahead of Sunday’s Rhone derby against Saint-Etienne. After the match last year, Memphis Depay came in for heavy criticism.

He was rated 2/10 in L’Equipe’s infamous player ratings and became a viral sensation for all the wrong reasons, playing a backheel pass to nobody and seeing an attempted bicycle kick shot fall flat, GOAL continues.

Although Lyon lost that game 2-0, the Dutchman won’t change his style of play as they return to Saint-Etienne.

“I take risks, sometimes I lose the ball, it happens, this is the football,” Depay told L’Equipe.Wijnaldum looking to repeat Champions League success Nedim Maric – Liverpool are the reigning winners of the Champions League. However, this isn’t stopping them for aiming to get the glory once again.After a perfect…

“If you want a left winger who plays simple, I’m not the g上海夜网ood player,” the 23-year-old added.

Depay said he sees himself as a creative player, not just an average winger.

“Of course, I can play simple, but I’m also a player who can dribble, create. If I look [at] me in the mirror, I see a creative player.”

“The coach asks me a lot of effort, and I try to do what he asks me [but] I’m not a left-back,” he said about his efforts on defense.

Depay said he focuses on what is expected of him and tries to do his best.

“The most important for me, what is expected of me, are goals and assists. For the rest, I do my best.”

The Dutchman concluded by saying he doesn’t listen to the criticism he receives on social media.

“I’ve always been criticised, but the important that’s what my team thinks. Others, I don’t care about their opinion, they speak in the void. Social networks give them a voice, but I don’t listen it.”

Mourinho compares his side’s latest victory with Real Madrid’s loss

It was a big night for Tottenham Hotspur as they beat Real Madrid 3-1 at home – but José Mourinho was also happy with that because this result made his Manchester United’s last win even more valuable.

The Red Devils are second in the Premier League table but José Mourinho has been criticized for his defensive style of play – but now, he insisted that it has its reasons. Real Madrid showed that it’s not possible to win against teams like Tottenham if you don’t have proper tactics and Mourinho managed to do so just a few days ago.

The Portuguese tactician spoke about this connection as he said, according to ESPN: “I know that it is a different way of analysing things for this reason or that reason, similar performances for some clubs are magic, are examples of brilliant tactics and amazing attitude from the other players and for other teams the same kind of performance becomes conservative, becomes negative, becomes s上海夜生活o many adjectives.”Jamie Carragher puts Chelsea over Manchester United and Arsenal Nedim Maric – In an uneventful derby, last night, Manchester United and Arsenal both got point each.Top four-fight this season looks like it’s going to be between…

The former coach of Real Madrid or Chelsea also added: “Honestly, just as an example, Tottenham beat Liverpool 4-1, Tottenham beat Real Madrid 3-1, Tottenham didn’t score against Manchester United so at least a little bit of credit my players deserve. It is just a change of normal training time because I want to be there and I cannot be in the morning so I have to change the timings.”

His team are still without Fellaini and Pogba and he doesn’t think they will be fit for the match against Chelsea: “We have to wait a little bit. Normally a press conference is a bit later in the week. I am not very optimistic but I don’t want to lie. I don’t want you to say I lie when I said no chance of recovering so I just say two more days to confirm my expectations.”

City to move decisively for Sanchez

Manchester City are preparing the final assault for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

According to The Telegraph, the Citizens want to take advantage of the Chilean’s contractual situation and make a reduced bid, counting on Arsenal’s desire to cash in on the player. Aft上海夜生活er having made a bid of €70m in the summer, which was rejected by the Gunners, Manchester City will now offer only €23m for Sanchez, considering that his contract expires next summer and he can negotiate with any team in January.

On Thursday, Arsenal’s manager, Arsene Wenger admitted that Sanchez could leave in January. Asked about the possibility to cash in on players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, whose contract are expiring next summer, Wenger said: “It’s possible.

Ventura could not help applauding Isco

Italy lost 3-0 to Spain, but Isco’s performance left even his opponents in awe.

Italy’s manager Giampiero Ventura revealed that there was nothing he could do, but applaud Isco following the Spaniard’s sensational individual performance.

Spain won 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier at the Bernabeu on Saturday, with the Real Madrid star putting of a stunning performance during the first half. Isco’s showing was also backed by two goals and a ridiculous nutmeg against PSG midfielder Veratti.

Lukaku would cost \u00a3150m this summer insists Mourinho

The Red Devils boss believes Neymar’s switch to Paris Saint-Germain significantly boosted all prices on the market.

Jose Mourinho admitted that he was satisfied with Manchester United’s quick work on the market, sealing all important deals early on. The Portuguese tactician revealed that the people working at the Red Devils could feel that the market would go crazy this summer, and with N上海夜生活eymar joining Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros, they were proven right.

“I think we were very clever,” he told the Times. “We thought that something could happen that could change the market forever. Normally the last part of the market is less expensive, but this season, after Neymar everything changed – and changed for the worse in terms of prices.

“Lukaku and Matic, now, would have cost us £200m in total. But because we did it in the first part of the summer, it was much less. I think we did well in financial terms and well in preparation terms, getting them before the season started. That is not crucial but it is important.

“Neymar changed everything. If the biggest transfer in history had still been Pogba, I think Philippe Coutinho would now be in Barcelona at £101m.

“People look to the £200m figure now. Now the players of £20m became £40m, the players of £40m became £60m and everything changed.”

La Liga planning to organize matches abroad

The La Liga president is looking to expand the league’s global reach and plans to organize matches outside of Spain in the future.

Javier Tebas took part in the Soccerex Convention in Manchester and discussed the plans for development of the Spanish League: “La Liga is global entertainment and we want to grow the international appeal of La Liga.”

“As part of that effort we are discussing the option of playing some of the league matches outside of Spain. These discussions are still in early stages, but as La Liga, we support the idea”, Tebas was quoted by the Financial Times. Report: Mourinho rejects several offers amid Real Madrid talk Andrew Smyth – Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down several job offers in Europe as he eyes up a potential shock return to Real Madrid.

This summer, Real Madrid and Barcelona played a pre-season match in Miami. It was the first time the two teams met outside Spain since 1982. The match attracted a crowd of 66.000 people in the stands of Hard Rock Stadium.

The match was part of the International Champions Cup, which is organi上海夜生活论坛zed by Relevent Sports, whose chairman said that their next step is to move from organizing friendly games to organizing competitive matches from different leagues in different parts of the world.

According to Deloitte, La Liga is currently third in Europe’s top leagues in terms of the generated revenue, only behind Premier League and Bundesliga. Last year, the Spanish League signed a domestic television rights deal worth €2,65bn. Although the amount represents a major improvement compared to the previous deals, they are still a long way behind Premier League, who sold their domestic tv rights for double the amount.

Mati\u0107 hopes to follow the steps of Vidi\u0107 in Manchester

The midfielder hopes to achieve the same level of success as his Serbian teammate Vidić.

New Manchester United signing Nemanja Matić is eager to have a fruitful career at Old Trafford, following his move from Chelsea in a transfer worth £40million. The 28-year-old played alongside Nemanja Vidic, former Manchester United captain, who won five Premier League and the Champions League during his spell in Manchester.

Speaking to MUTV, the Serbian said:

“Vidić was a great player, he was one of the players I looked to be similar to because he had a great career,

“He was the leader of our national team and it’s great to be at the same club, like him. I’ll try to do my best to repeat what he did. I know it’s going to be hard but I don’t want him to tell me one day ‘what are you doing there?’.”

Mexico meet New Zealand in their second group-stage game of the Confederations Cup

Both sides will be seeking their first win at the tournamentWritten by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 19, 2017.

On Wednesday, Mexico will face New Zealand in Sochi’s Fisht Stadium and both teams will be under pressure. Juan Carlos Osorio’s team need a win to keep their hope of reaching the semi-finals alive, whereas All Whites know that another defeat will most certainly send them back home.

Mexico started the tournament with a good performance leading to a 2-2 draw against Portugal. On the other hand, New Zealand was dominated throughout their game against Russia and eventually lost 2-0, going ten games without a win at the Confederations Cup.

Having remained on the bench at the game with Portugal, Mexico’s captain Rafa Marquez is likely to start against New Zealand. If that happens, he will become the second-oldest player in the history of the Confederations Cup standing at 38 years and four months. He is the only player at the whole tournament with experience of winning it and has already stated that he plans on playing on for the national team until next year’s World Cup.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

Mino Raiola: “Donnarumma was bullied by Milan”

The young goalkeeper has shocked AC Milan with his decision to leave the club when his contract will expire. But now, the player’s agent has spoken about some of the reasons that led his client to this decision.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 19, 2017.

Mino Raiola is very well known for his negotiation tactics, and it looks like this time he has surpassed himself with handling the situation of his young client. But the agent has now spoken about what made Donnarumma decide that he won’t continue with AC Milan.

According to Raiola, Donnarumma was ready to sign a contract extension with The Rossoneri and had no intention to leave. But the “hostile environment” created by the club made the young goalkeeper change his mind.

Donnarumma’s decision not to sign a new contract took everyone by surprise and angered a lot of fans, as some have gone so far as to throw fake money at him, during Italy’s debut at the Euro U-21 Championship.

And on Sunday, the player’s agent has decided to give his opinion on the situation, in an attempt to mov上海夜网e the blame to AC Milan. Speaking to the Italian press, Raiola said: “The situation had become too violent and hostile, so there was no way out. We took a decision that we didn’t want to take.”

“It was nothing to do with money. We were threatened. Donnarumma’s family was threatened, both with not playing anymore and threatened with death. You can’t keep a player by threatening him.”Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

“Now there is a genuine risk he could miss a year. His quality makes that improbable, but this is already on the verge of bullying.”

“We never even got to talk about money or release clauses, because we were not allowed to get that far, nor to think of what was best for Gigio.”

“He was ready to sign a new contract, there were no doubts in his mind. They forced us to abandon the negotiations because of the environment created around him.”

“I take the responsibility. They forced us. It was Milan that lost Donnarumma. He said to me, ‘honestly Mino, I don’t feel it is right to carry on negotiations when these people are insulting and threatening me and my family”

The agent blamed Milan’s director Massimiliano Mirabelli for the poor handling of the situation: “For example, there was a banner in front of the club headquarters. A club should protect its players and remove the banner. A club should support a player and encourage his career, not threaten him with having to be left in the stands.”

After having played an important role in Manchester City’s second part of the season, Guardiola is looking into the possibility of keeping Yaya Toure for another season.

Although he has been linked with moves to China lately, where he could definitely earn as much as his current £230,000 a week, Toure wants to stay in England, as he feels he can still contribute in top football.

But in order to do so, he would need to accept a huge wage cut. At least if he wants to continue with Manchester City. The club are preparing to offer him a new deal, with a weekly wage of around £100,000.

Although Toure had a rough start of the season, due to frictions between his agent and Pep Guardiola, Yaya has since then apologized and played an important role in City’s campaign. And while Guardiola is looking to add several players to his squad, he is willing to consider keeping the 33-year-old as well, due to his experience and popularity in the team.
