UEFA and its members have been lobbying European political leaders and authorities for some time on this issue, and the 52 European national associations adopted a resolution at UEFA’s Rome Congress in March in support of the campaign. Legal framework”Our objective is to ensure that the new Treaty provides a legal framework for sport that is clear, stable and consistent,” UEFA Chief Executive Gerhard Aigner said in a recent message to the associations. “Above all, it should enshrine the legal recognition of the specific nature of sport, and protect the autonomy of sport’s governing bodies… Legal framework”Our objective is to ensure that the new Treaty provides a legal framework for sport that is clear, stable and consistent,” UEFA Chief Executive Gerhard Aigner said in a recent message to the associations. “Above all, it should enshrine the legal recognition of the specific nature of sport, and protect the autonomy of sport’s governing bodies.

, 19 years later a “top-notch quick tempered P. E MASTER sorry coach” has repeat the same mistake of the past, If yours truly is asked to describe the current black stars coach ,who I think should connect a flight from Rwanda,I will tell you he came to Ghana to pay us back after what he termed the ill-treatment meted out to him in the early 90’s by the then GFA. As k me again and I will tell you there should be a serious scrutiny in the whole affair of contracting the man who won’t listen to advice but think he knows too much and is yet to win a major trophy,GFA chairman uncle Ben kouffie,what is your reaction?is it going to be the same ‘won gyae no ma onye n’adwuma na eekyire y’aka ho asem or the world cup 2006 is the target”,I think I will advice you step down with your top class coach to save Ghana football and the new soccer academy from extinction. You wanna know why because instead of letting our proven local coach to use our small fishes to qualify us to meet the sharks at the upcoming African soccer fiesta in TUNISIA, wait a minute? What does Tunisia brings to mind ,nine{9}years ago messrs Aggry fyn and Jim agrah failed to listen to Ghana and they paid dearly for it ,when we were eliminated from the nations cup,ironically it was burkhard’s trusted mr. Eddie Ansah the alleged 50year old goaltender was in post. This man came to Ghana to run the show for Ghanaians but he was always seen on television answering questions from the press,whilst the pitch should be his office ,I think there is no need to keep him as blackstars coach or we continue to cause “financial loss to the state” since the zivadinovic’s money is still not accounted for. Burkhard should render an unqualified apology to all Ghanaians for the way he treated as by sometimes been insulting.

Ronaldinho is Real keen
Irish Independent – Jul 7, 2003
United boss Alex Ferguson has earmarked the 23-year-old Paris Saint-Germain player as the man to replace new Real capture David Beckham in the hearts of the United faithful. However, it is looking increasingly as if Real are winning what seems more and more like a two-horse race even though Barcelona, Chelsea and Newcastle have also been touted as potential candidates to sign the player. Assis said: “Manchester United and Real Madrid are still negotiating with the Paris St Germain president (Francis Graille). ” PSG have already turned down one United bid and Assis believes that the French club would prefer a deal whereby the player stays in Paris for a year before becoming Real’s magnificent seventh “Galactico” alongside Beckham, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos and Raul… The Brazilian further complicated matters by catching a plane to London when he left Madrid. Ronaldinho has indicated he would prefer to move to Madrid immediately rather than wait a year but the delayed deal could be ideal for Graille and new PSG coach Vahid Halilhodzic. Both Halilhodzic and Graille insisted that the player, contracted until 2006, would not leave this summer when they took over at the club in June. However, the finances of the French club are in a worse state than either man had thought and Halilhodzic has since admitted he may have to let Ronaldinho go. – Cindy Garcia-Bennett.
