LinkedIn BARCELONA : Forward Sergio Aguero said he has no regrets over signing for Barcelona despite the fact that close friend Lionel Messi left the club in the same transfer window.LinkedIn SYDNEY: Australia's Victoria state reported its biggest single-day rise in COVID-19 cases this year, the majority in Melbourne, as most other regions in the state exited lockdown on Friday (Sep 10)..LinkedIn England Women manager Sarina Wiegman guided the Netherlands to European Championship success on home soil in 2017 but said replicating that feat in her new role would be a much harder task.

The Argentine, who arrived on a free transfer from Manchester City, said he was happy with the decision he had made - even if it meant taking a paycut."No doubt I'd sign for Barca again.The shift to a strategy of living with, rather than suppressing, the virus after hitting national vaccine coverage of 70 to 80 per cent is part of a four-stage national reopening plan unveiled by the federal government in July.Just for the name of the club, many players are open to giving up money in order to come," Aguero told Spanish radio station RAC1."When we spoke to Barca we knew about their finances, but I told my agent that I didn't care about money - all I wanted was to sign for Barca, even if it meant not earning what I was at City.Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews, whose state on Friday reported 334 new locally acquired cases and one death, has said lockdown restrictions in Melbourne will not be eased until 70 per cent of the adult population has received at least one vaccine dose, which is expected around Sep 23.Aguero admitted he did speak with Messi about his situation, however, he denied media reports he had a clause in his contract allowing him to walk away if his countryman left."In 2017, Germany was the most expected winner because they won it six times in a row and then the Netherlands won it.

"He told me at the Copa America that it looked like the deal was done, but that's all we spoke about the situation," Aguero said.Berejiklian on Friday denied going against the advice of the state's health officials who, according to local media reports, wanted restrictions to ease only when vaccination levels topped 80 per cent."When we came back he said they were still trying to come to an agreement but then the famous Thursday happened and I was left in shock, like everyone."Someone invented that I had a clause that allowed me to leave if Leo (Messi) did."We are definitely in a transition phase and it is going to be challenging.What actually happened was I was injured when I was due to be presented and it happened just a couple of days after Messi left."
