Koulibaly: How Sarri benched me after attending son’s birth

first_imgKalidou Koulibaly has told an incredible story detailing how Maurizio Sarri ordered to him to join up with the Napoli first-team hours after attending the birth of his – only to place him on the substitutes bench. Back in January 2016, the Senegalese defender received a call from his wife Charline telling him she was going into labour ahead of the game against Sassuolo. He was scared to answer it to begin with because of how “intense” Sarri can be but mustered up the courage and told his manager of his situation. After initially saying he couldn’t leave to see the birth of his son, Sarri gave in but ordered him to return and stressed how much he needed him. Recalling the events in The Players’ Tribune, Koulibaly said: “Sarri looks at me and says, “No, no, no. I need you tonight, Kouli. I really need you. You can’t go.” “I say, “This is the birth of my son, Mister. You can do whatever you want to me. Fine me, suspend me, I don’t care. I am going.” “Sarri looks so stressed, and he is smoking his cigarette. Smoking, smoking, thinking … then finally he says, “O.K., O.K., you can go to the clinic. But you have to be back for the match tonight. I need you, Kouli!”” The former Genk centre-back was there to see his son arrive into the world and got permission of his other half to head back to the Stadio San Paolo. But then when he returned, much to his disbelief, Sarri had him down as a substitute on the team line-up. “I am getting ready to play, and Sarri comes into the dressing room and puts up the team sheet. And I am looking… looking… looking,” Koulibaly added. “My number is not there. I said, “Mister! Are you kidding me?” He said, “What? It is my choice.” “I said, “Mister! My son! My wife! I left them! You said you needed me!” He said, “Yes, we need you on the bench.” read also: Sarri:  I can handle Juve pressure despite suffering two defeats  Just incredible.

Sala crash pilot lost control, flew too fast: UK probe

first_imgFootballer Emiliano Sala was killed when the unlicensed pilot of his plane lost control and flew too fast as he tried to avoid bad weather, British aviation investigators said on Friday. The deadly plane crash cast a spotlight on lax aviation regulation in Britain The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in its final report into the January 21, 2019 crash that the single-engine Piper Malibu aircraft suffered an in-flight break-up and plunged in to the water, north of Guernsey, upside down. The AAIB also confirmed that pilot David Ibbotson, 59, was unlicensed to fly that particular aircraft and at night, when the tragedy occurred. He was also operating an unlicensed commercial flight and being paid an unspecified amount for the flight, which was illegal. Investigators said it was likely that he was affected by carbon monoxide. An interim report also found that Sala had suffered carbon monoxide poisoning before the plane crashed and was likely unconscious when it hit the water. Geraint Herbert, Senior Inspector of Air Accidents at AAIB, said the plane was flying erratically in its last moments as the pilot tried to avoid bad weather. “During this accident the pilot lost control of the aircraft during a turn, which we believe he was making to avoid poor weather,” Herbert told AFP. “After that the aircraft broke up in flight because it was manoeuvring at a speed well in excess of its maximum manoeuvring speed.” – ‘Not survivable’ – The plane was travelling at an estimated 270 miles per hour (435 kilometres per hour) when it hit the water, said the AAIB. Investigators said the impact was “not survivable”. Although there was no single cause for the accident, said investigators, the tragedy has thrown a spotlight on lax regulation. The 115-page report highlighted concerns over the growing use of unlicensed commercial flights, such as the one used to transport Sala, by the “sporting world”. The AAIB also recommended that carbon monoxide monitors be fitted as standard on all planes. Sala had signed for Cardiff in a £15 million ($19 million, 17-million-euro) deal completed just a few days before the crash The plane, built in 1984, did not have such a monitor and it is believed that the poisoning was caused by a faulty cabin heater. Herbert said two main factors contributed to the crash. “One was that the pilot was not experienced and qualified to fly the flight, but the other one of course was that he was probably suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning,” he said. “We have made a recommendation to the regulators to require the carriage of carbon monoxide detectors on aircraft such as this.” – Illegal charter flights – Sala had signed for Cardiff in a £15 million ($19 million, 17-million-euro) deal completed just a few days before the crash. The Argentinian was returning to Cardiff to take part in his first training session after saying goodbye to his teammates in northwest France.

That inquest is due to start next Monday in Bournemouth, southern England. The European Business Aviation Association said the tragedy and report had highlighted “the risks of illegal charter flights”. Reports in the British press have said former football agent Willie McKay said he paid for the fatal flight, but did not choose the pilot or the plane. Sala’s body was found several days after the crash, attached to wreckage from the plane, while Ibbotson’s body was never found.center_img Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
