Ferreira: Al Sadd deserved win over Al Sailiya

first_imgStars League Qatar Stars League: Jesualdo Ferreira insists Al Sadd deserved narrow win Last updated 2 years ago 06:30 25/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Al Sadd Getty Stars League Al Sailiya v Al Sadd Al Sadd Al Sailiya Al Sadd head coach Jesualdo Ferreira is adamant that his side deserved all three points despite controversy over Al Sailiya’s disallowed goal. Al-Sadd head coach Jesualdo Ferreira feels that his side fully deserves the 3-2 over Al-Sailiya after the performance they put up during the Stars League Round 2 match.Speaking at the post-match press conference, Ferreira said: “It was a tough match, just as I said before the match. Al-Sailiya are a strong team and they have excellent players. We were the better side in the match. The referee wrongly disallowed a goal for us in the first half. As for Al-Sailiya’s penalty, I did not see it properly and I won’t make a judgement. The win was a difficult one but we fully deserve it.”As for Al-Sadd’s decline during the last few minutes, he said: “This is the second match we have played with some players missing out. We are looking to have the players gel well with each other in defence and this will happen as we play the upcoming matches, especially after the break when the team will be at its best.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career?

There are players who need to be better physically. Al-Sadd will return when there will be a balance between physical and mental condition. After the break, the team will be better.”last_img read more

Alberta adds twoyear sunset clause to bill that would regulate oil shipments

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta is putting an expiry date on proposed legislation that would allow the province to regulate oil and gas shipments.The government has said it might use such a law against British Columbia if that province continues to block an expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline.Parties on both sides of the house voted on Wednesday to accept an Alberta Party amendment to put a two-year limit on the bill.It proposes that Alberta have the power to restrict and redirect flows of oil, gasoline and natural gas to maximize profits, given the bottlenecks in pipelines.The amendment gives the government the option to extend the bill after the two-year limit, but it would need to go back to the legislature for approval.Energy Minister Marg McCuaig-Boyd told the house that two years is a reasonable time and the amendment doesn’t tie the government’s hands.Premier Rachel Notley has threatened consequences to B.C. for opposing and delaying Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain project.The bill has the potential to cause gasoline and other fuel-related prices to spike in B.C.The dispute is heading for a showdown on May 31. That’s the date Kinder Morgan Canada has set for a decision on whether it might cancel the $7.4-billion project.(Companies in the story: TSX:KML)last_img read more
