Klopp confirms Salah out of 2nd Barcelona encounter.

Published

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the team will be without top scorer Mohamed Salah for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, the second leg against Barcelona.

Klopp at his pre-match press conference on Monday said Salah was concussed in the 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday and was stretchered off at St James’ Park due to a head knock sustained as he challenged Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for a high ball.

“It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play. So that’s it. He’s desperate (to play) everything but we cannot do it.”

Klopp will also be without Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino due to a groin injury as his side face the huge challenge of trying to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit to make the Champions League final for a second consecutive season.

“Two of the world’s best strikers are not available tomorrow night and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes,”

“It doesn’t make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it.” added Klopp.

All time, former Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali has died in exile aged 83, his family says.

Ben Ali led the country for 30years and was credited with delivering stability and some economic prosperity.

But he received widespread criticism for suppressing political freedoms and for widespread corruption.

In 2011, he was forced from office following mass street protests. This triggered a wave of similar uprisings across the Arab world.

At least half a dozen countries in the region saw their president fall or conflicts break out in the wake of the former Tunisian leader’s downfall, in what became known as the Arab Spring.

Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government

Published

After a vote tally showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tied with his main rival.

Israel’s weakened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw his offer on Thursday for a coalition with his strongest political rival,  Gantz, swiftly rebuffed after failing to secure a governing majority in a tight election.

Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.

Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.

Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
