LinkedIn Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said he was unsure if his Brazilian players could play against Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday after they were ruled ineligible because the Merseyside club did not release them for World Cup qualifiers."I am recovering well," Pele, 80, said in a message posted on social media.LinkedIn LONDON: A British man has been sentenced to pay compensation and observe a curfew at weekends after pleading guilty to posting racist abuse about England players on the night of the Euro finals in July.Scott McCluskey, 43, from Runcorn, northwest England, singled out Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho in an abusive Facebook message after they missed their penalties in a shootout.
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) triggered an"automatic restriction period" of five days which stops clubs picking players who have not been released, asking FIFA to enforce their rules.Liverpool refused to release the players as they would have had to quarantine for 10 days at a hotel on their return to England.The hospital treating him said Monday the former footballer was recovering in an intensive care unit.Klopp said they would have needed a further 10 days to get back on track if they went into hotel quarantine.McCluskey said he had been smoking cannabis and deleted the comments after other Facebook users objected to them."It's a really difficult situation and it's really tricky for all the clubs and players.The tumor was detected during routine tests, according to the Albert Einstein Hospital, where Pele has undergone treatment since August 31.." McCluskey's case came as former footballer Anton Ferdinand called on social media companies to act immediately to end racial abuse, warning that online hate could even be fatal.
.The only player in history to win three World Cups (1958, 1962 and 1970), Pele is considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all time.He must do 30 days of rehabilitation and be subject to an electronically-monitored curfew for much of the weekend, for 40 weeks.We should not forget that the players wanted to play these games.The clubs wanted to let players go but it was just not possible," Klopp told reporters on Friday.Four years later, Pele gave a tantalizing glimpse of his ability with an electric individual goal against Mexico in Brazil's opening 2-0 win."It looks like the real punishment is for the players because they can't play."The CPS takes this kind of offending very seriously and this case shows that where offensive content is reported to the police we can successfully bring offenders to justice.That's what they do, that's what they love to do.mel/lm/ob/dw/caw.Story continues McCluskey's arrest followed police investigations into messages directed at some of England's black players after the Euro final defeat in July.
That's really not ok.The world is still in a pandemic."The football players so far get exemptions which haven't led to any spread in cities because of all the things we do during the week.It's completely different to society out there.We get tested three times a week.There also needed to be a greater understanding of the experience of racism within the higher echelons of social media companies, he added.
" Forward Roberto Firmino is unavailable for Liverpool's trip to Leeds but goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielder Fabinho are ineligible.Brazil were unable to finish their game against Argentina when health authorities invaded the pitch to stop the match after accusing four of Argentina's Premier League players of violating the country's COVID-19 quarantine rules."Nobody wants to see situations like that.Get the game cancelled, stopped in that moment," Klopp told the club's website, adding that they could have played their qualifiers during the off-season instead of a second Copa America in two years."And now, the next thing, we have a football game to play again and they tell us we cannot play our Brazilian players.
It's like, 'Huh?' We did nothing."We didn't organise the Copa America, we are not responsible for the games they couldn't have played.We didn't invite players, we didn't say when they come back there's no exemption.We all didn't do that."
