During the Italian professional soccer Serie A match between AC Milan and Udinese, the game was stopped for about 10 minutes due to a spectator’s racist behavior toward a player.AC Milan’s goalkeeper Mike Maignan suffered racial discrimination from a spectator during the 2023-2024 Serie A 21st round away game against Udinese held at the Blue Energy Stadium in Udine, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy on the 21st (Korean time).According to the BBC, right after AC Milan’s Rubin Loftusczyk scored the first goal in the 31st minute of the first half, the Udinese home crowd made racist remarks toward Meignan.
Meignan reported the damage to the referee, and the game was stopped as Meigne and the AC Milan team withdrew from the ground. About 10 minutes later, the players returned to the ground and the game resumed, and AC Milan defeated Udinese 3-2 thanks to Noah Okafor’s goal just before the end of the game.After the game, AC Milan expressed solidarity with Meignan, a victim of racism, by saying on the club’s social media (SNS), “There is no place for racism in our game,” and saying, “We are with you, Mike.”
Serie A also strongly criticized it on social media, saying, “We condemn all forms of racial discrimination. We are appalled.” Meanwhile, the game was tense with both teams trading scores.In the 31st minute of the first half, AC Milan took the lead with Loftusczyk’s right-footed shot, and in the 42nd minute of the first half, right after the game resumed, Udinese’s Lazar Samardzic tied the score with a left-footed shot.
In the 17th minute of the second half when the two teams were tied 1-1, AC Milan, who lost the game due to a left-footed shot from Udinese’s Florian Thauvin, regained the balance with Luka Jovic’s diving header in the 37th minute of the second half.Then, just before the end of the game, Okafor completed a 3-2 comeback with a dramatic right-footed shot.AC Milan is in 3rd place in Serie A 카지노사이트킹 with 45 points.Udinese remains in 17th place with 18 points.

Played in the V-League for the past two seasons and moved to the Polish League this season
At the professional volleyball men’s foreign player tryouts in Turkiye Istanbul in May last year, “molbang volleyball” (a form of volleyball in which offensive responsibilities are concentrated on foreign players) was a hot topic.
Former Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong said, “If you go to this team, you have to hit (spikes) 1,500 times, and if you go to that team, you have to hit 1,000 times. If you come to my team, you only need to hit it 500 times,” he joked.
It was a self-acknowledgement of the “mall volleyball” already rumored among foreign players looking to break into the V-League.
The V-League doesn’t have many domestic offensive players, so teams often rely on foreign players to carry the offense.
Some players testified that it was difficult to play this way.
Elisabeth Ine Varga (Hungarian: Elisabeth), who played for Pepper Savings Bank in the 2021-2022 season and KGC Ginseng Corporation (now Chungkwanjang) in the 2022-2023 season, opted to move to the Polish league this season instead of signing up for a V-League tryout.
“I hit so many balls in the Korean league that I don’t even remember how many I hit,” she told the league’s official website on Thursday (local time). “Anyway, I knew what my role was as a striker, and I always gave my best to the team,” she said.
Elizabeth was the No. 1 overall pick and finished the 2021-2022 season ranked sixth in scoring (598 points) and fourth in attacking success rate (41.45%) for her new team, Pepper Savings Bank.
The “mall volleyball” that Elizabeth called for in her interview came in the 2022-2023 season, the second season of the V-League.
At the time, Elizabeth had 1,015 points, almost 100 points ahead of second-place Leticia Moma Vasoco (née Moma – then of GS Caltex)’s 879 points.
She is only the third woman to reach 1,000 points in a season after Madeleine Montaño Caicedo (KGC-registered Montaño – 1,076 points) in 2011-2012 and Joyce (KGC – 1,091 points) in 2013-2014, and the second all-time in a single season.
In terms of offensive possession alone, Elizabeth was dominant.
From 35.71% with Pepper Savings Bank to 41.30% with KGC, Elizabeth’s offense percentage was the highest in the league.
The all-time leader in the women’s league is KGC Joyce’s 54.46% in the 2013-2014 season.
“In the V-League, teams are organized in such a way that one or two players do most of the offense,” explains Elisabeth. The Polish league, on the other hand, has a high percentage of attacks from the apogee spikers, but they are spread out among several players and attack in different ways.”
This season, Elisabeth’s attack share in the Polish League is 21.51%, half of what it was last season when she played in the V-League.
“I’m glad that I don’t feel that way here, unlike in Korea, where I was getting beaten up,” she added.
Japan is on edge after the sensational performance of ‘golden talent’ Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain). It has been predicted that he will be a major threat to Japan’s Asian Cup title challenge.
“Japanese soccer fans praised Lee Kang-in for leading South Korea to victory,” said Japan’s The Answer on June 16 (KST). “South Korea won 3-1 against Bahrain. They won after a rough game. When sports channel DAZN released the video of (Lee Kang-in’s goal), Japanese soccer fans reacted by saying, ‘It will be a big threat to Japan.'”
Lee Kang-in scored back-to-back goals to lead Kliman to a 3-1 win over Bahrain in their Qatar 2023 Asian Cup group stage opener on Friday. Lee’s left-footed mid-range shot in the 11th minute of the second half was particularly spectacular. Lee picked up the ball near the penalty arc and took a bold shot with the opposing defense in front of him. The shot sailed past the Bahrain goalkeeper and into the net. It was a stunning goal that had head coach Jürgen Klinsmann clapping his hands.
According to reports, DAZN described Lee’s goal as a “super goal by a young Korean talent.” Japanese soccer fans also praised the goal with comments like “good job,” “Korean Messi,” and “a big threat for Japan.” Considering that South Korea and Japan are traditional rivals, it is quite special to see Japanese soccer fans praising Lee Kang-in.
In terms of team strength, South Korea and Japan are the biggest favorites to win the tournament. However, both teams are hungry to win. South Korea is one of Asia”s most dominant teams, but they have never won the Asian Cup. They last won the tournament in 1956 and 1960. It will be 64 years since they won the tournament.
Japan, considered an all-time favorite, is also desperate to win. They have won the Asian Cup a record four times. However, the last time they won was 13 years ago in 2011. Before that, they reached the top in 1992, 2000, and 2004. In this situation, the extraordinary performance of their ‘rival’ Lee Kang-in is bound to be a concern.
Meanwhile, praise poured in from around the world. “He is the new king of Asian soccer,” said Spain’s Dario As, “He took out his wand and worked his magic. His goals remind me of the greatest player of all time, Lionel Messi (Inter Miami),” he said.
LG Twins left-handed reliever Ham Deok-ju, 29, who hit the free agent jackpot after the 2023 season, has already undergone elbow surgery. He has been removed from the spring training roster and plans to focus on rehabilitation. In effect, the first half of the 2024 season is now in doubt. It’s a blow to the defending champion LG Twins.
On the 16th, the LG Twins announced, “Ham Deok-ju underwent left olecranon pin fixation surgery at Sejong Sports Orthopedics due to a microfracture of the olecranon bone in his left elbow. The rehabilitation period is expected to be about six months,” explaining, “He is expected to return around June or July.” According to a club official, the injury was discovered during the medical check after signing the contract. After observing his condition for about three weeks, he debated between rehabilitation and surgery, and finally made the final decision to undergo surgery.
Ham Deok-ju was an integral part of the LG Twins’ bullpen in the 2023 season. After becoming a free agent for the first time in his career after the season ended, Ham signed a four-year, 3.8 billion won ($600 million down payment, $1.4 billion in salary, and $1.8 billion in incentives) contract with the LG Twins on March 24.
At the time, the LG Twins said, “He is a pitcher with a lot of experience, including national team experience,” and added, “In the 2023 season, he showed his best form while regaining his health. He also fulfilled his role in the team’s must-win group. We expect him to stay healthy and pitch for the team in the future.”
However, as mentioned by the club, Ham Deok-ju has always been a pitcher who has been plagued by injuries. A graduate of Ilsancho, Wonju Central, and Wonjuju, Ham Deok-ju was selected by the Doosan Bears with the 43rd overall pick in the fifth round of the 2013 rookie draft. He made the jump to the first team in 2015, appearing in 68 games with a 7-2 record, two saves, and a 3.65 ERA in 16 appearances. Since then, he has split time between the starting rotation and the bullpen, helping to build a Doosan dynasty.
The big change came in March of the 2021 season. In exchange for Ham Deok-ju and right-hander Chae Ji-seon from “next door” Doosan, LG made a two-for-two trade that sent infielder Yang Seok-hwan and pitcher Nam Ho to Doosan. It was also the moment when he left the team where he had played steadily since his rookie year.
After undergoing surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow after the 2021 season, he spent most of the 2022 season rehabbing. In 2023, he had his best season yet. He went 4-0 with four shutouts, 16 saves, and a 1.62 ERA. The breakdown: 32 hits (1 HR), 22 walks, 59 strikeouts, 12 runs (10 earned) in 55⅔ innings, a WHIP of 0.97, and a batting average of 0.165.
Most importantly, Ham Deok-ju anchored the bullpen as a “Plan B” when the original LG trio of Lee Jung-yong, Jung Woo-young, and Woo-seok were shaken by injuries and poor performances early in the season. Although he was sidelined with an elbow injury at the end of the season, he was named to the Korean Series roster and shared in the championship glory. In the Korean Series, he appeared in four games, going 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in 3⅓ innings pitched. It was a happy ending for Ham Deok-ju, who won his fourth Korean Series title in his career after winning the title in 2015, 2016, and 2019 while playing for Doosan.
Ham Deok-ju, who was a free agent at the time, said through the club, “I feel lighthearted that I was able to finish my contract before the year ends. The team did its best work this season. I’m glad that I was able to help the team a little bit by pitching without injury. I’m happy to be able to pitch healthy once again, and I will do my best to stay healthy and continue to help the team become a strong team.”
As he said in his comments after signing his free agent contract, he wanted to pitch in 2024 as healthy as possible. “I went to spring training for the first time with LG before the 2022 season,” he told reporters at Jamsil Stadium. “At that time, I had surgery and wanted to throw well, but I pushed myself too hard, and I think it led to bad results until the regular season.” “In 2023, I slowly brought my body up to the point where I was worried about myself, but it worked. This year, I’ll build myself up for the start of the regular season. I’m not touching the ball right now. I’m focusing on rehab and weight training.”
The most eye-catching part of Ham Deok-ju’s contract was the incentives. Just under half of the 3.8 billion won deal, 1.8 billion won, was an option. An option is literally not a guaranteed amount of money. It is an amount of money that can only be earned if the player performs well enough to fulfill the conditions of the option. In a way, it’s a safeguard for the club to prevent ‘cheating’. In the past, teams would give players large sums of money based on their past performance, regardless of whether they would perform in the future, or on name recognition alone. However, it is no exaggeration to say that the atmosphere of treating free agents is changing. “I performed so well last year that it’s an option that I don’t have to go that far to get it,” said Ham Deok-ju. As long as you’re healthy and can pitch in the first team, you can get enough. There’s not much to it,” he said emphatically.
“The incentive will motivate me,” he said. It’s true that I’ve always had an injury risk, and I’ll be motivated to eliminate that. With this, I can prepare for the season without being complacent just because I signed a free agent contract. I was able to finalize my contract with a good mindset.” “I don’t worry about injuries at all. I’ve been playing professionally for more than 10 years, and I actually took two years off due to injury, and then I became a free agent. I don’t consider myself an injury risk.” With such good health, Ham Deok-ju was preparing for the 2024 season by openly expressing his desire for incentives. However, that dream was dashed when he ended up on the operating table.
At this rate, it’s unlikely that Ham will be able to take home all of his incentives from the first year of his contract. Furthermore, LG lost closer Ko Woo-seok to the San Diego Padres of the Major League Baseball. While Yoo Young-chan was selected as the closer, the more experienced Ham Deok-ju could have been used in some situations. When asked about the closer position, Ham said, “That’s something the manager decides. I don’t have any regrets. If I thought it would change because I was sad, I would have said I was sad,” he laughed, and then said, “If I do my job, I will have a good chance.” He was determined. However, once the first inning was effectively over, the LG bullpen had another problem.
Son Heung-min and Kang-in were caught in a rough foul… Yellow cards: Korea 5, Bahrain 2.

SEOUL, Jan. 15 (Yonhap) – A “refereeing caution” has been issued to the Klinsmanns as they seek to regain their first Asian title in 64 years.
South Korea’s Jürgen Klinsmann-led national soccer team defeated Bahrain 3-1 in their first match of Group E of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Qatar Asian Cup on Friday at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.
A win in the most important first match of any tournament eased the way to a first Asian Cup title in 64 years.
However, the match was not without its crises.
Three players – Park Yong-woo (Al Ain), Kim Min-jae (Munich) and Lee Ki-jae (Suwon) – received a series of yellow cards between the ninth and 28th minutes of the first half, raising concerns.
The warnings for the Taeguk Warriors continued in the second half. Cho Kyu-sung (Meatwillan) was shown a yellow card in the 16th minute of the second half, and even “ace” Son Heung-min was shown a yellow card in the 49th minute.
South Korea received a total of five yellow cards against Bahrain, the second-most in the tournament behind Palestine, who received six against Iran.
Son Heung-min clashes with Bahrain’s Ibrahim Al-Wahri (Doha = Yonhap) Kim Dohun Kim reports on the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Asian Cup Group E match between South Korea and Bahrain at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar on June 15, 2015. South Korea’s Son Heung-min stumbles after being fouled by Bahrain’s Ibrahim Al Wahri.
Bahrain received two yellow cards, one less than South Korea.
So far, 31 yellow cards have been issued in the 10 group games, a rate of 3.1 per game, including seven in the Korea-Bahrain game.
The problem is that there was a lot of room to question the equity of referee Manning, who is Chinese.
Despite receiving fewer warnings, it was the Bahraini players who committed the most fouls.
Especially in the second half, the fouls were concentrated on Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in, the core of Klinsmann’s attack.
The two players were lying on the ground with their faces contorted in pain. At one point, there was even a moment when they looked like they might be injured.
The Korean coaching staff, including Klinsmann, made several appeals to the referees in the technical area, but they were unable to change the tone of the game.
Football commentator Han Jun-hee said, “It’s true that (Manning) is a referee with a lot of cards in the first place. However, the calls were not very favorable to us.”

The ‘refereeing problem’ that has plagued Klinsmann since the first edition could resurface at any time in the quest for the title.
Asian Football Confederation (AFC)-organized competitions such as the Asian Cup and Champions League are officiated by referees from Asia.
Compared to other federation-organized competitions, such as the FIFA World Cup, which brings in top-notch referees from around the world, the quality of refereeing is inevitably lower, and there have been criticisms.
If you can’t avoid it, you can only ‘manage’ it.
It is better to reduce the number of situations in which officiating problems can occur. It’s better to play with the assumption that there is always a chance of an unfavorable call.
It is also a trend in world soccer that referees actively use yellow cards to prevent possible injuries to players.
“We shouldn’t be too sensitive about the referees, and we should play with the expectation that they can be strict and conservative with us at any time,” says Han Jun-hee. “It’s also good to get to know the referees quickly during the game, and avoid making unnecessary misleading moves. This is true for any referee you encounter.”
Lionel Messi has been named the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Men’s World Player of the Year, but he was nowhere to be seen at the ceremony.
Messi was honored at the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) The Best FIFA Football Awards in London, England, on Saturday night. Messi, who was shortlisted alongside Manchester City forward Elling Holland and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, was selected as the winner by a vote of FIFA member national team captains and managers.
Messi left PSG last summer to join Inter Miami in the American Major League Soccer (MLS).
Upon his arrival, he brought the MLS League Cup to Miami, which was “last in the league for a decade,” and the team’s regular-season standings rose dramatically. Although the team was far from winning the league title, it was still a significant achievement to present the team with its first trophy just a month after joining.
With this win, Messi extends his record for most FIFA Men’s World Player of the Year honors to eight. It further widens the gap between him and second-place rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who has won the award five times.
However, Messi did not appear at the ceremony. The reason: training. Spanish soccer pundit Guillem Balague revealed the reason for Messi’s absence on social media after the award was announced. Balague is a well-known member of Messi’s inner circle, having written Messi: The Biography in 2013.
“Messi didn’t attend the ceremony because he was training with Inter Miami, and if he came to London (for the ceremony), he would have lost three-quarters of his training schedule,” Balague said.
“He has to adapt to his new football schedule. “He has to adapt to his new soccer schedule. He had some problems at the end of last season,” he said, adding, “He wants to have a proper pre-season to prepare his body for the first game this week.
In Messi’s absence, legendary French forward Thierry Henry accepted the award on his behalf.
Inter Miami will play a friendly against the El Salvador national team on Sept. 20. After that, the team will play fellow MLS club FC Dallas and Ronaldo’s Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal. The 2023 regular season begins in late February against Salt Lake City.
“Messi places a lot of importance on getting fit in the preseason, and I think his participation in the Copa America with Inter Miami and the Argentine national team played a part in (the importance of this preparation),” Balague said.
However, some have criticized Messi’s win as a popularity contest.
This is because FIFA only evaluated the winner from the end of last year’s World Cup in Qatar until last August.
It’s hard to understand how Messi, who hasn’t done much beyond winning the Ligue 1 title with PSG and the League Cup with Inter Miami, could win the award over Holland, who won City’s first ever treble (Champions League, League, and FA Cup).
FIFA did not respond directly to the controversy, but after Messi’s award, the organization said, “Messi helped PSG win their second consecutive French Ligue 1 title. He provided the most assists in Ligue 1 last season (16) and was named in the Ligue 1 season’s best 11.” “In March last year, he became the third player in the history of his country to score 100 goals, joining Ali Daei (Iran) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), when he scored in a friendly against Curacao,” FIFA detailed Messi’s achievements.
“After leaving PSG, he made an immediate impact on his debut for his new team, Inter Miami,” he added.
Wolverhampton lost to Arsenal 1-2 in the 14th round of the 2023-2024 Premier League held at the Emirates Stadium in London, the U.K. early on Sunday (Korea time). Wolverhampton maintained its 13th position with 15 points (four wins, three draws and seven losses).
Hwang Hee-chan, who played as a two-top player at Wolverhampton, played full-time but failed to score a goal. Hwang Hee-chan was warned in the 43rd minute of the second half. Wolverhampton, who gave up two goals in the first half alone, only Cunha recovered one goal in the 41st minute of the second half. 메이저 토토사이트
Despite the silence in the match against Arsenal, Hwang is having his best season with eight goals and seven in the league, breaking his personal records. Hwang is tied with Ki Sung-yueng with 15 goals in his career total in the Premier League. Park Ji-sung’s 19 goals in total are also within reach.
As Hwang Hee-chan showed better-than-expected performance, Wolverhampton also rushed to propose a renewal of his contract. Hwang Hee-chan still has two more seasons left on his contract with Wolverhampton after this season. Nevertheless, Wolverhampton is trying to tie Hwang Hee-chan for a long time with a long-term contract. Hwang Hee-chan is recognized for his performance.
“Hwang Hee-chan is having the highlight of his season,” said Molineux News on the 29th, paying attention to Hwang Hee-chan’s performance. The media outlet said, “How many goals has Hwang Hee-chan scored this season? Hwang Hee-chan, who started scoring in the second round against Brighton, also scored against Palace and Liverpool. If Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal, his team lost, but he won dramatically in the match against Manchester City. In the match against Fulham, which suffered a controversial defeat, Hwang Hee-chan also scored his seventh goal.”
Hwang Hee-chan also appeared on BBC Football Focus, a famous soccer broadcast in the U.K. “Of course, it’s a huge highlight. We fought well and did our best to win,” he said about his performance.
Lee Kang-in (22) will start against Le Havre in a uniform written in Korean. 에볼루션 바카라사이트
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play the 14th round of the 2023-24 French Ligue 1 against Le Havre AC at the Stade Osean in Le Havre, France, at 9 p.m. on the 3rd (Korea time).
For PSG, Donnarumma, Hakimi, Danilu, Mukiele, Soler, Vitinha, Lee Kang-in, Fabian, Dembele, Mbappe and Barcola will start.
Lee Kang-in will be on the starting list again. In the match against AS Monaco last weekend, Lee Kang-in was included in the replacement list but did not play.
He missed the UEFA Champions League (UCL) match against Newcastle United during the week, and Lee Kang-in started against Newcastle and played 81 minutes.
Lee Kang-in’s participation on the day carries special meaning. PSG will play in the match against Le Havre for the first time in the team’s history while wearing Korean-language uniforms.
PSG announced on the club’s official website on the 1st, “PSG will play against Le Havre in a uniform with Hangul engraved on it for the first time in the club’s history. Since Lee Kang-in joined, the number of Korean fans watching PSG matches has increased a lot.”
