Eibar players show concern about return

first_imgSebastián Cristóforo also revealed his unease over the same matter on April 2. “Before you talk about finishing the league, you must end this virus nightmare. The main thing is to try to find a cure for the virus, that there are no more infected and return to normal life. Later it will be seen how everything resumes: the league, life, jobs, studies, etc. But the essential thing right now is to try to stop the contagion. The main thing is people’s health“He pointed out flatly.” We are seeing that it is a world crisis, not just one country. Hopefully in a little while it will be known how this contagious disease can no longer be spread and a cure found. We have to try to reduce the contagion between everyone, being in our houses; let this end as soon as possible and let’s get our lives back“he indicated more than a month ago.“We want to play, but not at any price”“We want to play, but not at any price. We must first preserve the health of all the protagonists“Amaia Gorostiza, Eibar president, stressed last Saturday regarding the resumption of the league.” We know that not resuming the competition would have quite important consequences, both economic and social; and that is why we are working to return to the competition. We want to play, we all want to play, but not at any price. Obviously, we want to preserve the health of all those people who are within the competition itself“Barça president stressed.” Footballers want to play, but they fear for their health and the health of their families, of course, “said Amaia Gorostiza.“The first thing is the health of people who participate in a match“highlighted on April 4 Jon Ander Ulazia, CEO of Eibar, who then made an assessment of the three assumptions that were being handled (that the league should not be resumed, that it be done behind closed doors, or with the public). Now, the only thought is to finish the competition without spectators in the stands. “All possible scenarios must be planned, putting the health of the footballers and all those who participate on the field of play ahead. The League (said referring to the club management) has made it clear that there will be no resumption of any kind if health is not guaranteed, “he said.Eibar opens its store and customer service officeEibar will open its official store and the member service office on Tuesday, May 5, although by appointment, according to the Gipuzkoan First Division club on its website.Eibar will recover the face-to-face attention of its Orsaixan space (store and customer service office) with the obligation to arrange a meeting before being able to access the interior. So, it will be avoided that there is more than one subscriber or customer in the premises located in the Ipurua stadium, to prevent infections.During this week, the customer service hours will be from 9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. Those who want to make an appointment, must do so through the telephone number 943 20 18 31, or through the email partners@sdeibar.com and store@sdeibar.com,The entity will make available to workers and users all the necessary safety measures, such as masks, to avoid contagion..The official store and Eibar partner service office has been closed for seven and a half weeks, since the last day it was open was Thursday, March 12, and on Friday, March 13, the shutter was lowered. Eibar players are concerned about the return to professional soccer activity, which has already begun to take its first steps after more than seven weeks stopped by the coronavirus. For this reason, they are thinking of issuing a statement to express the doubts and problems posed by the return to sports work, as announced by Cadena SER on Monday.Barça footballers see risks with a return to training and competition in a sport in which there is physical contactTherefore, it is impossible to maintain the physical safety distance and the protections (masks) that are required of other workers to prevent the spread of COVID-19.The Eibar team does not see it clearly, nor do many other athletes who practice a team sport in which there is contact, such as basketball, handball, or rugby. In Holland and France, professional football has already been suspended – Belgium was the first to say that the season was not going to end –, while in Spain the handball and rugby competitions of the highest categories have already been completed.Several Eibar players have publicly expressed their concern about the possibility of catching the disease in sports in case of returning to activity to resume a league that was paralyzed after day 27, and which still has 11 games to play if it wants to end the 38 league days.Pape Diop was very clear on April 16. “I would not play again if there is a risk of infecting the family. Football moves a lot of money, but the most important thing is health. It seems too soon to go training, this disease is more serious than what we had been told, “said the Senegal midfielder, settled at his home in the Basque Country two weeks ago.“Until health is secure, it doesn’t seem right to play,” said José Angel ‘Cote’ on April 8. “The fairest thing would be to play, but health comes first. And right now, health is not guaranteed. Until health is secure, it would not seem right to resume competition“highlighted the Asturian left-back defender.”I don’t think much about football with everything that’s going on out there. All of humanity must focus on stopping the virus“sentenced the gijonés.Not even the fact that it has been planned to start training first individually and, later, in small groups – as happened in Germany – they do not convince José Angel ‘Cote’. “It seems silly to me. I don’t think you can solve anything with that. The most important thing is health right now“He assured four weeks ago. His words were prophetic, because in Germany there are already 10 players infected before the competition began, and some are from the same team. And it is that the coronavirus is a contagious disease that the same can be transmitted between co-workers or sports activities, if they share a close space or if they maintain physical contact.last_img read more

Democrats prepare for Stuart succession

first_imgClark County Democrats will take an important step Friday toward drafting a list of three candidates to replace outgoing County Commissioner Steve Stuart, who will step down next month to become city manager of Ridgefield.The end-of-week meeting is expected to draw more than 100 local Democrats to the Labor Center. There, party officers will pose questions to the hopefuls. The question-and-answer period will serve as the party’s opportunity to vet the candidates, three of whom will be presented to the remaining two Clark County commissioners. The two commissioners, Republicans Tom Mielke and David Madore, will be tasked with appointing a replacement for Stuart, a Democrat.County Democrats plan to make their list of three candidates official on March 28.So far, the list is pretty well-established, as only three people have thrown their names into the field.Mike Heywood, chairman of the Clark County Democrats, said the party is open to accepting the names of more people interested in the appointment, before the March 28 deadline.“We want to spread the net as widely as possible so we don’t miss anyone,” Heywood said.The list currently includes Temple Lentz, a Democratic precinct committee officer and freeholder; Craig Pridemore, a former county commissioner and state senator; and Kelly Love Parker, the president and chief executive officer of the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.Even though there are only three names vying for Stuart’s position, county Democrats say they’ll likely take other means to ensure the candidate with the most party support is appointed.last_img read more
