There’s sharp rise in footballers reporting depression symptoms — Players union

first_imgThere has been a sharp rise in the number of footballers reporting symptoms of depression or anxiety since the sport was brought to a standstill by the COVID-19 outbreak.The global players’ union, FIFPRO, says 22 per cent of women players and 13 per cent of men players who took part in a survey reported symptoms “consistent with a diagnosis of depression”. It listed symptoms such as lack of interest, lack of appetite, lack of energy and self-esteem.This compared to 11 per cent and six per cent respectively in a similar survey conducted in December and January.It said 18 per cent of women players and 16 per cent of men reported symptoms of generalised anxiety such as worry or tension.There was some crossover with 11 per cent of women players and 7.5 per cent of men reporting both sets of symptoms, FIFPRO said.“In football, suddenly young men and women athletes are having to cope with social isolation, a suspension of their working lives and doubts about their future,” said FIFPRO’s chief medical officer Vincent Gouttebarge. “It is a time of huge uncertainty for the players and their families due to the insecurity of their future and the social isolation.”FIFPRO said the survey included 1,134 male players, with a mean age of 26, and 468 female players, with a mean age of 23, in 16 countries.It was conducted with the Amsterdam University Medical Centre.On a more positive note, Gouttebarge said nearly 80 per cent of players surveyed reported that they had access to sufficient resources and support for their mental health.They said this was often through their national player associations. FIFPRO general secretary Jonas Baer-Hoffmann said they were not trying to make a special case for footballers.“We are very conscious that this is a reflection of a problem in broader society and there is no suggestion that it is more severe for our members,” said Baer-Hoffmann.“Footballers are more similar to average society than most people think, and that is simply because of the misconceptions about how players live.”He stated that many footballers lived a precarious financial existence at the best of times.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians “The average contract length is under two years and the average income is close to that of the general public,” he said.“Many are incredibly dependent on their footballing skills and are not prepared for what would come after.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: COVID-19depressionFIFProlast_img read more

Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher urged to earn new deal by boss Sam Allardyce

first_imgSam Allardyce has challenged striker Steven Fletcher to earn himself a new contract by firing Sunderland out of trouble. The Black Cats boss saw the Scotland international turn in a fine individual display last Sunday to pave the way for a 3-0 derby victory over Newcastle, in which he scored the final goal to cement an opening win of the Barclays Premier League campaign at the 10th attempt. Fletcher, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season and, having been linked with a move away from the Stadium of Light in recent months, has found himself at the centre of uncertainty for some time. Press Associationcenter_img However, Allardyce wants to see more of the same from the £12million man to the benefit of both him and the club. The 61-year-old said: “Steve’s like every centre-forward in the end. His hold-up play is very important to you because you can build off that – that in itself allows you to keep hold of possession a lot better – but ultimately in the end, you are judged on the number of goals you score. “The more and more goals he scores, the more people will say Steven Fletcher is back to his best. “In his position, it is one of the biggest challenges of his career because he is out of contract. When a player is out of contract and the club is in this position, I just want to see a player like Steven go out to help us to get where we want to get. “Then everyone gets what they want – a new contract, we are okay in the Premier League and and we try to move forward from there. It should be his target.” Sunderland will attempt to build upon their derby success when they head for Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday, although Allardyce will be looking for a significantly better performance after seeing his team play second fiddle to the Magpies on their own pitch before the penalty decision which saw Fabricio Coloccini controversially dismissed. He said: “There’s a lot more to come. I will be demanding a lot more. We are on the way to sorting one critical area which will help us survive this season, which is to stop not conceding silly goals.” Meanwhile, Allardyce was comfortable with the decision to uphold Coloccini’s appeal against his red card, although remained convinced his challenge on Fletcher remained worthy of a penalty. Asked if he was surprised, he said: “No. As long as everybody agrees it was a penalty – and there isn’t one scrap of doubt in my mind that it was a penalty, as far as that was concerned. “But in terms of the red card, that one that if it’s been rescinded, it’s fine by me.” last_img read more

Grant starts in return from injury, shines in Syracuse win

first_img Published on March 9, 2014 at 8:03 pm Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHass TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Jerami Grant burst by Michael Ojo on the left side and muscled up a shot. He drew contact and got the layup to stick.Just like that, Grant was back. For the first time since Syracuse’s loss to Duke on Feb. 22, he played nearly the entire game. After missing the second half of SU’s games against Maryland and Virginia and all of the Orange’s loss to Georgia Tech on Tuesday, Grant played 35 minutes Sunday.He scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting and gobbled up eight rebounds, returning to the starting lineup and helping guide No. 7 Syracuse (27-4, 14-4 Atlantic Coast) to a 74-58 win over Florida State (18-12, 9-9) at the Donald L. Tucker Center.“We’re a completely different team with Jerami Grant,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “If he wasn’t able to go tonight, we wouldn’t be very happy right now. He’s key to what we do.”After the game, Grant said he felt close to 100 percent. The sore back that’s limited him the past few weeks is almost a nonissue.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGrant said he and the coaching staff made a collective decision that he would start against FSU after Grant practiced Friday and Saturday. He added that he felt good during and after those practices, and knew he was capable of playing.“It’s definitely hurting a little bit,” Grant said, “but at the same time if I can play through it I’m going to play through it.”Syracuse needed Grant down low against the Seminoles. Both Rakeem Christmas and Baye Moussa Keita picked up four fouls and had to deal with Okaro White inside. When they went to the bench, Grant was there to clog the paint and close out on shooters.Grant was also active offensively. He swooped through the lane to draw an and-one in the second half. Less than two minutes later he put back a Trevor Cooney miss. It wasn’t the kind of ferocious dunk that made him a staple of SportsCenter’s Top 10 early in the year, but it got the job done.“It was good to have Jerami back,” SU guard Trevor Cooney said. “He was his old self today. He was grabbing offensive rebounds and putting them back in and just being Jerami, really. He looked great.”When Syracuse warmed up before the game, Grant participated fully. He sported a pair of vibrant, multicolored kicks and looked completely comfortable.Though that comfort carried over to the actual game for the most part, there were stretches where Grant looked slightly limited.Early in the first half he caused a defender to fall down on a spin move, but then left a layup short when it barely grazed the front rim.Later on, Grant missed a reverse layup among a sea of Florida State defenders. It was far from an easy shot, but one Syracuse fans have grown accustomed to seeing Grant make this season.“He had a little rust,” Boeheim said. “He didn’t get to rebounds a couple times that he would have.”When asked what particular elements of his game were inhibited, Grant said he felt fine.For the most part, he was his old self. Grant’s return paved the way for a superb afternoon from C.J. Fair, as having another weapon in Grant on the floor gave Fair more space to operate and work his mid-range game.Christmas dominated inside, Cooney got open looks outside and Tyler Ennis had another option to look for when he drove to the basket.“I think we are a very different team,” Fair said, “because teams respect him. He’s proven what he can do, and other players are able to make plays.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Sondre Norheim’s late goal the only spark in Syracuse’s 1-1 draw with Colgate

first_img Published on September 24, 2018 at 11:16 pm Contact Eric: | @esblack34 Facebook Twitter Google+ Hugo Delhommelle dribbled the ball to the left of the goal just outside the penalty box as he scanned for options. The senior, who’d already assisted on Syracuse’s lone goal of the game, spotted Ryan Raposo streaking down the field on the other side of the box undetected by the Colgate defenders. Delhommelle’s service was perfect, finding Raposo’s right foot as the freshman midfielder wound up for the potential game-winning shot.He’d gotten too much underneath the ball, though, sending it just above the crossbar of the goal. The ball flew into the netting behind the goal and fell to the ground innocently. Raposo landed just inside the penalty box and fell to the ground in despair.For the second straight game, the Orange (3-3-1, 0-2-0 Atlantic Coast) failed to find a spark on offense and missed out on numerous opportunities despite outshooting its opponent. SU tried different formations and rotations and even introduced new players to the lineup, but all of its attempts to get something going offensively failed. It took a goal in the 77th minute by a defender, Sondre Norheim, for Syracuse to salvage a draw against the Raiders (4-1-4, 0-0-1 Patriot).“We need to be able to score goals anytime,” Delhommelle said. “That’s what we’re missing right now…Because we have the opportunities, every single game we out-shoot teams. That means something.”As opposed to Friday’s loss against Virginia in which the Orange played the Cavaliers even in the first half and dominated in the second, Syracuse had control throughout the game on Monday. A 5-3 lead in shots after halftime increased to a 13-9 advantage by the end of the game, but aside from Norheim’s goal, SU came up empty time after time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse head coach Ian McIntyre suggested that the Orange wasn’t at 100 percent after Friday’s game, leading him to make changes to his rotations.“These are tough games to turn around,” McIntyre said about Monday games following Friday contests. “We weren’t firing on all cylinders. We got some tired legs.”Fifteen minutes into the game, Djimon Johnson moved to the backline to add a fourth defender to the lineup on the field. Fifteen minutes later, three substitutions were made, one of which was Julio Fulcar, who made his college debut.Fulcar failed to record a stat but provided the Orange with fresh legs, something that was just as meaningful on Monday.“Getting fresh feet on the pitch is always a good way to bring energy to the game,” Norheim said. “(We) needed energy in our attacks.”Syracuse’s fatigue from the weekend meant Norheim’s goal to tie was that much more important after falling behind early like the Orange has been prone to do this season. Considering the fact that the sophomore is a defender and normally not an attacking player, the goal is only magnified.It came off a set piece on the left half of the field and another accurate free kick set-up by Delhommelle. Norheim set up near the far post just outside the six-yard box and barely had to move, heading the ball just enough to change its direction into the back of the net.It was the pinnacle of what McIntyre believed was an ‘outstanding’ day for Norheim, who played all 110 minutes.“Being next to him, seeing him flying forward,” Delhommelle explained, “I said, ‘Okay, go ahead Sondre. Go have fun. I’ve got your back.’”Norheim’s play was certainly the main takeaway from the contest and may very well be expected moving forward as he transitions into more of an attacking role. But it’s likely one of the only positives the Orange can take from Monday’s game.After ‘outplaying’ its opponent but failing to capture the win for the second-straight game, Syracuse is still looking to find consistency as the season reaches its midpoint. Positives looking back at the past couple games are scarce, but the Orange is optimistic looking forward.“We just need this click during the season,” Delhommelle said. “I thought today would have been the day. We’re still looking for it, but it’s gonna come.” Commentslast_img read more

Padres call up pitching trade target Adrian Morejon, report says

first_img MLB trade rumors: Phillies have ‘investigated the possibility’ of dealing for Diamondbacks’ Zack Greinke MLB trade rumors: Prospects Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, Braves should move but don’t want to Sources: Cuban LHP Adrian Morejon is promoted to Big Leagues with Padres. He is on his way to Chicago right now.— Francys Romero (@FrancysRomero10) July 20, 2019Adrian Morejon will join Luis Urías in Chicago tomorrow, sources tell The Athletic. Morejon, who has thrown seven consecutive hitless innings in Double A, will work out of the bullpen.— Dennis Lin (@dennistlin) July 20, 2019Morejon, 20, is the Padres’ No. 4 prospect and the No. 49 prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB Pipeline.He is 0-4 with a 4.25 ERA with the Amarillo Sod Poodles this year (we didn’t need the name, but who wouldn’t want to write that out) after posting sub-4.00 ERAs in his previous two minor league seasons. Related News MLB trade rumors: Twins eyeing Madison Bumgarner, Noah Syndergaard, other arms, report says And if the Padres want to land a guy like Noah Syndergaard who they have been connected to or maybe even a Trevor Bauer who pundits still seem to believe he could move, Morejon could be the one who seals that deal.Morejon was the No. 3 prospect in a stacked 2016 international signee class. He ranked behind only Luis Robert who is now the No. 5 prospect in MLB and Kevin Maitan who the Braves were forced to surrender their rights to and now resides in the Angels system. Astros pitcher Cionel Perez and Blue Jays shortstop Lourdes Gurriel Jr. were also in that class.If Morejon pitches well before the July 31 trade deadline he could very well entice teams to make a deal for him. Or he could just be awesome and then the Padres have a great young lefty to anchor their rotation for a while. It’s a win-win for San Diego. This is an interesting call up for the Padres for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s exciting to see a 20-year-old get a chance to pitch in the major leagues, but also, San Diego could very well use this opportunity to preview just what type of arm he has.Several teams have inquired about Morejon in trades over the last year including the Indians who wanted him in a deal for Corey Kluber this offseason. The young lefty has a solid three-pitch mix with two offerings that grade out as above average. That is in very high demand in trades. The Padres are calling up a lefty a lot of teams want.Adrian Morejon will be joining top infield prospect Luis Urias in Chicago with San Diego tomorrow, according to Las Mayores and The Athletic.last_img read more
