Conte to sue Chelsea over delayed sacking

first_img0Shares0000Antonio Conte is reported to be set to sue Chelsea over his sacking © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 20 – Antonio Conte is set to take legal action against Chelsea over damage to his career and loss of future earnings following his sacking by the Premier League club, according to reports on Friday.Conte is believed to be furious Chelsea made him return to pre-season training before finally dismissing him last week to make way for the arrival of new boss Maurizio Sarri. The Italian, who spent just two years with the Blues, was widely reported to be facing the sack for much of last season after the breakdown in his relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and the club’s hierarchy.But Conte was made to wait 55 days after Chelsea’s FA Cup final win over Manchester United before he was axed.After winning the Premier League in his first season at Stamford Bridge, Conte presided over a dismal collapse last term, with Chelsea finishing fifth and missing out on a place in the Champions League.Conte is believed to have received a £9 million pay-off for the year he had remaining on his Chelsea contract, yet the Times reports the former Juventus coach is keen to get additional compensation.That could trigger an ugly legal battle, with Conte’s lawyers reportedly set to claim the west London club cost their client a year of his career, as all the top management jobs in Europe have been filled.Real Madrid were believed to be interested in Conte after Zinedine Zidane left in May, while the Italy job was also available earlier this year.The Times also reported Chelsea have threatened to withhold Conte’s contract settlement due to repeated criticism of his employers over their failure to back his transfer demands.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Donegal woman wins seat for the Tory Party in England

first_imgA West Donegal woman has won a seat for the Tory Party in the local elections for Brentwood Borough Council in England.Maria Pearson, a native Irish speaker from Gaoth Dobhair, topped the poll.This is the first time a native Irish speaker has won a seat. Maria was elected in the Herongate, Ingrave and West Herndon Ward of Brentwood, an area in the London commuter belt.Maria got a huge majority of the vote, approximately 70%, and said she was both surprised and proud of the result.“This is the first time I have stood, and I was nervous about running, people don’t normally get in the first time. It was a personal vote I think, and I have to say that I’m very proud of the result.”Speaking on the on the Rónán Beo show on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, Maria said that her husband, who’s Scottish, had owned a pub in the area for two years, something which meant that they knew many people in the area personally, and she felt that this helped her campaign a lot. “People gave me a vote who would never normally have voted Tory, and indeed never had. It was a personal vote …”Maria said that Brexit was a huge issue on the doorsteps and that they were ‘eaten alive’ on that subject.She explained that there was strong support for a No Deal Brexit in the area, that all people wanted was to be going out of the EU, but that people had little or no understanding of the border question.She believes that they can’t go with a no deal Brexit and said explaining the implications on the doorsteps was challenging.“Over here, in the papers and on the radio, nobody was talking about the border and what was going to happen in Ireland, something that was of huge importance to me. “They don’t understand the border, they think it’s like something they’ve seen on TV with guards walking up and down patrolling.“I was explaining how there are houses that straddle both sides of the border, and they found it hard to believe.“But it’s something that’s so important to me personally, and to everyone at home in Ireland.“When I explained the implications to them of a no deal Brexit, then they began to understand and to come around to my point of view.” Donegal woman wins seat for the Tory Party in England was last modified: May 7th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalelectedGaoth DobhairirishMaria PearsonnativespeakerTory Partylast_img read more
