The scenarios that Espanyol handles if LaLiga does not return

first_imgAnother framework for action being studied at Espanyol to reduce costs in the absence of income is the provisional cancellation of some providers of the entity, or the postponement of certain payments, provided that it is totally justified by the current exceptional situation.At Espanyol they hope to adopt a firm decision next week, not without first having somehow with LaLiga general recommendations, which could arrive in the next few hours, although they understand at the RCDE Stadium that there are as many economic situations right now as there are professional clubs in trouble.All these hypothetical measures are aimed at a situation in which LaLiga did not resume, which would be the most catastrophic economically. It is because of that It is also studying how to make decisions that, in the event that the 11 days are finally disputed that have been left in the air, they can be reversible. In phase of a deep economic study is Espanyol, who is dedicating this week to consider what decisions to take preventively in case, finally, LaLiga does not resume and a high percentage (between 25 and 30 percent) of expected income in games as important as television rights, sponsors or ‘ticketing’.So that such a brutal impact does not catch them off guard, the club shuffles various scenarios. A priori, in none of them will the workforce be affected by the measures. Nevertheless, Yes, the first team can be damaged. The PericosOnline portal published this Wednesday that Espanyol would have already communicated to the players their intention to compete an ERTE (Temporary Employment Regulation File). According to sources from the entity to AS, this decision is contemplated but not taken, and for that reason the captains could have been tested in that sense.Not surprisingly, the salary of footballers as such is a tiny part of what they receive, hence Another scenario that is more likely to be considered is that of a reduction in chips that would naturally be agreed between the sports staff and the company, outside the channels of what is properly an ERTE.last_img read more

‘I am in the medal mix’ – Powell backs himself for 100m glory

first_img Still, he does have two World Championships bronze medals to his name and he does carry a greater sense of calmness and confidence about him these days, but despite the cold shoulder he’s receiving from the pundits, Powell remains convinced that this may be his shot and actually welcomes the fact that most eyes are focused elsewhere. It’s a shame really. Powell arrived in Beijing as the second fastest man on the planet with his 9.81 seconds season’s best bettered only by Gatlin and having posted seven sub-10 seconds times. “It’s a good feeling to be back, we have a lot of great memories here in Beijing. At the 2008 Olympics the Jamaican team came here and dominated and we left our signature here in Beijing so it’s good to be back, I think everyone remembers that and they are coming out to see the Jamaican team again,” Powell added. “I don’t mind, let them focus on whoever they want to focus on and leave me out of it, let me do what I am supposed to do. Everyone has their own opinion and beliefs. I believe in myself and I am going out there to show them that I am there,” Powell told The Gleaner yesterday during an interview at the Nuo Hotel in Beijing. BEIJING, China: With all the talk about a Usain Bolt/Justin Gatlin clash in the 100 metres heading into the 15th IAAF World Championships in Beijing, one can be excused for forgetting that another Jamaican speedster Asafa Powell is also in the medal mix. “I’m in gold medal shape, I am one to contend with and I am going out there to give everything I have and I will definitely run fast here,” added Powell, whose camouflage pants matched his militant attitude.  “I know that they are in the race with me but I try to focus on my own thing there’s nothing you can do to avoid competing with these guys so it doesn’t make sense to make them be your problem. My problem is to execute my race and run like I’m supposed to,” Powell continued. Under normal circumstances, it would be criminal to write off a man with such an impressive record and a history of high – level performances. The thing is, Powell will not easily shake his reputation of being an athlete that more often than not fails to deliver when it really matters – at major international championships. “Come Sunday when we cross the finish line (after men’s 100m final), I want to be the one in front, that would be the most satisfying thing for me because over the years I have been running and I’ve not been able to get that individual gold medal yet so that’s really my aim,” said Powell, who added that he isn’t too worried about Gatlin’s form or Bolt’s ability, noting that his focus is to execute his own race.   The heats of the men’s 100m get started at 6:20 a.m. Jamaica time on Saturday.last_img read more
