CAS rule in Barcelona’s favour after Santos claim over Neymar transfer

first_imgThe Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has rejected Brazilian club Santos’ case against Barcelona relating to the signing of Neymar in 2013, the Spanish club said in a statement on Tuesday.Santos had presented a claim to FIFA in 2015 asking for £54m in compensation and damages after Barcelona made a payment to Neymar’s father and the family company N&N before signing Brazil forward for an initial fee of £51m.

(AP Photo/Alex Gallardo)ExpandANAHEIM — After the Angels’ 8-5 loss to the Houston Astros on Sunday, their nightmarish season came to an end with 90 losses.It was the first time they’d reached that level of futility since 1999, the year before Mike Scioscia was hired as manager.In the first year after Scioscia left, the Angels finished 72-90 under Brad Ausmus. He was at the helm throughout a season that included the tragic loss of Tyler Skaggs and numerous injuries to key players.As the season came to a close, there was a report that the Angels would  consider replacing Ausmus with Joe Maddon if he parted ways with the Chicago Cubs. About an hour after Maddon’s departure from the Cubs became official on Sunday morning, Ausmus shrugged off the rumors. “I have a contract,” said Ausmus, who is signed through 2021. “That’s the only thing I know.”Ausmus added that he’d been through a similar experience in 2015, following his second year managing the Detroit Tigers.“It came out I was being fired,” he said. “I was there for two more years. So you learn to take it with a grain of salt. Most of the decisions are not under my control, so I don’t worry too much about it.”General manager Billy Eppler is scheduled to meet with the media on Monday to discuss the season and the plans for the future.Ausmus added that he and Eppler “get along great, actually. Our relationship is very strong.”center_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The results, of course, were not good. While the bulk of the team’s problems were related to injuries and poor performance of the players, Ausmus said he was satisfied with the parts of his job that he could control.“Actually, if you talk about from a tactical or strategy standpoint, I thought it went well,” Ausmus said. “My time in Detroit served well in terms of experience. Responding to situations that happened on the field, I thought the clubhouse was extremely smooth. I think the guys got along well. They laughed together, they played hard together, they worked together. It was a good group of guys. So I thought those things overall went well.”Related Articles The biggest single reason for the Angels failures was a lack of starting pitcher, so it was coincidental that their final loss came at the hands of the pitcher that many hope can be a part of the solution in 2020.Gerrit Cole, a product of Orange Lutheran High and UCLA, struck out 11 in five innings to complete his campaign for the Cy Young award.This winter Cole is expected to be the top available player on the free agent market. The Angels will no doubt pursue Cole, who still lives in Orange County, and they will likely be on his short list of finalists.The only run the Angels managed against Cole came on a homer by Matt Thaiss, who later added a two-run shot against reliever Brad Peacock. It was the second multi-homer game of the season for Thaiss.Thaiss added an RBI double in the eighth, pulling the Angels within 8-5 after they had trailed 8-1.That was as close as the Angels could get, and soon after their disappointing season came to an official end.“There were some positives, but most of the positives were on individual levels,” Ausmus said. “I think, quite frankly, I’m ready at this point to put it behind me. It was a tough year.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros last_img read more
