“I’m disgusted with what happened with George Floyd, the people, the person that murdered him should go to jail, the people that watched it should be held accountable as well, I understand the anger as much as I can, but I also think police are honorable, it’s an honorable profession and they’re good people and to what happened last night they took a lot of stuff being said to them, very difficult things being said to them and they just listened and I think that’s a credit to them.” (WBNG) — 12 News spoke with several local leaders Wednesday to hear their thoughts on the recent protests around the Binghamton area. Reacting to the recent protests, Broome County Executive Jason Garnar said: So far, our community has only seen protesting that ended peaceful in our area. Roughly 1,000 people took to the streets on Sunday, and hundreds once again Tuesday night. “I think the protests that to me are the ones that are making the biggest difference are the ones that are organized, that are done in a way that are very productive and they’re done peacefully, they’re done in the spirit of that civil disobedience of Martin Luther King and my hope is that we’re going to see more of those not only in Binghamton, but across the entire state.” Democratic U.S. Representative Anthony Brindisi said: Republican U.S. Representative Tom Reed said: “I think it’s great that people are exercising their right to be able to protest the murder of George Floyd, it’s right that we condemn that murder and it’s good to see that in our district folks are coming together peacefully to be able to express their concerns.”

FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says he does not wish to have any more disputes with club captain Lionel Messi.This was after the Argentina captain reluctantly opted to stay at the club this month after failing to force through a move. “I won’t get into any conflict with him. He’s our captain and the leader of our team,” Bartomeu said before the team’s 1-0 friendly win over Elche on Saturday.“I couldn’t let him leave the club. He is the best player of all time and the team needs him. Having Messi is a guarantee of success.”Messi had complained earlier this month that Bartomeu had not fulfilled a promise to allow him to break his contract unilaterally and leave the club without a transfer fee.He had also lashed out at the president’s leadership.But Bartomeu chose not to fire back against Barca’s all-time top goalscorer. Instead, he praised Messi for turning a page and performing well in the team’s pre-season matches, including scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Girona last week.“We have seen him do his talking on the pitch and we have moved on from the saga,” Bartomeu added.“We should congratulate ourselves for getting Messi to stay with us and for how he has behaved in the last few days. The best player in the world should stay at our home.”Bartomeu has been in the firing line ever since Barca’s historic 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals last month.He came under renewed pressure after a campaign group gathered over 20,000 signatures from members to force a vote of no-confidence against him. In compliance with the club’s statutes, Barca are currently validating the votes and if over 16,520 are approved, then a referendum will be held in the next three months.Two-thirds of 150,000 members are needed to vote against Bartomeu to force his dismissal.Yet Bartomeu, who will be leaving the role after elections in March regardless of what happens with the motion of censure, ruled out resigning.“The board and I will keep working to ensure we have the most competitive team possible,” he said.RelatedPosts Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Messi wins court case against cycling company over logo Messi scores twice in Barca friendly “We will speak again after validating the votes, but right now no one wants to quit.

The 20-year-old Spaniard is Ian Holloway’s fourth summer signing, following the arrivals of Stephen Dobbie, Jerome Thomas and Dwight Gayle. However, the latter is the only out-and-out striker – a position in which the south Londoners are struggling with numbers. Glenn Murray netted 31 times for Palace last season but faces a long injury lay-off after sustaining a cruciate knee injury, while Wilfried Zaha has now started life with Manchester United. Veteran striker Kevin Phillips, who netted the decisive goal in the play-off final against Watford, has yet to officially pen a permanent deal and chairman Parish is well aware they need to strengthen in attack. “People have got to think we lost Wilfried Zaha and then Glenn Murray to injury, and we didn’t concede a goal in the three play-off games,” he told the Croydon Advertiser. “We’ve obviously lost in an attacking sense and we weren’t bad defensively anyway. I think it’s about getting your priorities first at the top end of the pitch because of being a bit thin there.” The rest of the Palace squad is shaping up nicely and the acquisition of Campana for an undisclosed fee is arguably the most impressive deal yet. After a foot injury restricted him to just five appearances for Sevilla last summer, Campana captained Spain at the Under-20 World Cup. The 20-year-old impressed as his side reached the quarter-finals, which helped the goal-scoring midfielder earn a four-year deal with the Premier League new boys. “I got the first interest through my agent, who said that Crystal Palace were interested and straight away I said ‘yes’ because for me it was a dream to play in England, especially in the Premier League,” Campana told Palace Player, speaking through an interpreter. “I hope to help the team stay in the league and then move forward. What I like to think are my best qualities are to keep the ball and to have good distribution. I have always been a typical Spanish midfielder and I like to move forward and score goals. “I scored a lot of goals when I was in the academy at Sevilla. That’s what I want, but especially to keep the ball and to organise the team.” For boss Holloway, such is Campana’s quality that he believes his recruitment could be key to the club’s ambitions of survival. “I’m absolutely delighted,” the Palace manager said. “Everybody knows the way I want to try and play football and how fantastic Spain have been over the past few years, so I’m delighted to get a lad of this quality. “I think he’s a fantastic player, his maturity is unbelievable, and the way he plays the game is the way I believe it should be played. He’s going to be a great star of the future and the present. We’re going to try and do as well as we can in this division and making signings like this is really going to help us.” Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish is targeting attacking reinforcements after completing the signing of Sevilla midfielder Jose Campana.

Jose Mourinho has mocked the critics of Chelsea’s substance over style approach with a tongue-in-cheek speech at the club’s end of season awards dinner. Mourinho said: “I don’t think my players got the respect that they deserve after what they did from day one till the last day. “And these are words that I really feel, serious words.” Following the speech, Mourinho added: “The end of the story is just simple. We have to start believing that they learned the lesson and next season will be much, much more difficult for us. We have to be ready for that.” Mourinho’s story was accompanied by graphics at the dinner at Battersea Evolution. “This is a football pitch with two goals, one ball, but there is one team that would like to play without goals,” he said, of the plain red-shirted team. “That team plays really well and the ball goes and goes and goes and the quality of the ball possession is really beautiful, but no goals. “And they ask the international board of FIFA to play like this, but they were told that it was not possible, that the bigger percentage of ball possession doesn’t win matches and they were not champions. “After that there was another team (wearing sky blue shirts) that were less radical and they asked to play only with one goal. “They were fantastic and they scored a lot of goals and the goals were coming from every position and they score and they score and they score, but they never conceded goals, because no goal. Again, the international board told them ‘I’m sorry, you can’t be champions because football is with two goals’. “The third team (red shirts, white sleeves) was almost there, because they wanted to play with two goals. “They were scoring some, they were also conceding some. They were fantastic. They scored really beautiful goals, they concede some goals too and they were almost there. “But they asked the international board to play only between January and April. And they told ‘no chance, no chance’. “You have to play between August and May, so they couldn’t be champions. “Finally come another team (blue shirts). They wanted to play with the normal rules and they know that to win matches they had to score one more goal than the opponent. “How can you do this? By scoring a lot of goals or not conceding and scoring one. “And they did it both ways. Scoring a lot, conceding some. Scoring one goal and conceding no goals. “That was the option and lots of goals were conceding, they played from August till May and sometimes they brought the bus.” Press Association The self-proclaimed Special One has previously admitted the Blues opted for a more pragmatic approach to matches as they closed in on the Premier League title they won with three matches to spare. On Tuesday night he told a story about three other teams who had kits not dissimilar to Manchester United’s, Manchester City’s and Arsenal’s, but first had something to say to Chelsea’s critics and afterwards for his players.
