Former Leicester City FC manager, Nigel Pearson is the current head coach of the club in the second tier of Belgium league football and Zico is being earmarked to take over the assistant head coach role.”We actually talked about it before. He had been busy with coaching at Port FC and now he is preparing for the Pro Licence course. You have to ask Zico himself about what he thinks about this.””Of course we support young players and we think about coaches as well but we haven’t done it yet. We respect Zico and respect his opinion. If he is interested, then we can talk about it again.”If he is interested, the door is always open for every coach. Then we will see if he can fit the role. If he leaves the job to me, that is not the right thing to do. But we admit that we are interested,” said the Leicester City Vice President, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha to Goal Thailand.Zico was very successful during his time with the national team, guiding them to AFF Suzuki Cup titles as well as taking Thailand to the the final group stage of the Asian Zone World Cup qualifiers.His recent appointment at Port didn’t go as well, managing to win only one match in the three months that he spent with the Thai League 1 club.
Bill Graveland, The Canadian Press CALGARY — A friend of the man accused of killing a Calgary Stampeder player maintained Friday that the alleged shooter confessed to pulling the trigger shortly after shots rang out. But in a lengthy cross-examination by Nelson Lugela’s defence lawyer, Darwin Concepcion acknowledged he was drunk on the night of the shooting and is still trying to piece together what happened.Lugela is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Canadian Football League player Mylan Hicks at Marquee Beer Market on Sept. 25, 2016.Concepcion testified he was drinking heavily with Lugela and another friend that night. He said he was outside the bar at closing when he heard a gunshot.“I heard a bang in my left ear. Everybody started running and everybody was panicking. My ears were ringing,” Concepcion told defence lawyer Alain Hepner.“I just turned around and Nelson looks at me and said ‘let’s go’ or something. ‘We gotta go.’ So we all hopped in the vehicle.”Concepcion said it wasn’t until they left the scene that he noticed Lugela was holding a gun in his hand and then said “I hit two shots. I don’t think he’s going to make it.”But Hepner challenged Concepcion, pointing out the man never mentioned that Lugela admitted to shooting Hicks in his original interview with police three days after the shooting.“You didn’t tell the detective this last phrase that you told us yesterday. Am I right?,” asked Hepner.“Yes,” Concepcion responded.“That was three mornings after. What I’m suggesting to you is you only heard the phrase ‘I don’t think he’s going to make it.’ That’s all you heard. Was that true? Is that all you heard? Am I right?“I was drunk,” replied Concepcion.“Sure it was three mornings later, but I’m still trying to piece out the story.”Lugela, 21 has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. Hicks was a member of the Stampeder’s practice roster and court has already heard the team was out celebrating a win when the shooting happened.The shooter and two other young men jumped into an SUV and sped away. Police arrested three people, including Lugela and Conception, about 45 minutes later when they returned to the scene.Follow @BillGraveland on Twitter
Twitter Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Alyssa Fearon will curate the brand-new Scarborough portion of Nuit Blanche next year. “There’s a lot of resilience, a lot of creativity. That’s what I want to illuminate – the great things that are there already,” she says. (TORONTO STAR / BERNARD WEIL) Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Nuit Blanche has travelled broad-ranging turf in its nearly a dozen years, from spectacle to activism and everything in between. Next year, it ranges farther than it ever has: To Scarborough, where a sizeable chunk of the annual overnight art event will touch down at dusk on Sept. 29, 2018.If Alyssa Fearon, the Scarborough segment’s newly named curator, has her way, Nuit’s move will break ground in more ways than one.“You always hear about Scarborough as a place that’s underprivileged, that’s at risk, that’s a ‘priority,’” she says. “I really think that does a disservice to what’s happening there. There’s a lot of resilience, a lot of creativity. That’s what I want to illuminate — the great things that are there already.” Nuit Blanche, Scarborough edition, will centre around its Civic Centre, which will serve as a hub in much the same way as Nathan Philips Square does for the downtown core. The two events will take place the same night.READ MORE Facebook
