Sakho keen to promote tolerance

first_imgLiverpool defender Mamadou Sakho believes education is the best way to tackle racism and all other forms of discrimination. France defender Sakho has only been in English football for a short time, having joined from Paris St Germain last summer, and said racism is not an issue he has had much experience of personally. However, he has tried to do his part to promote tolerance back in his homeland. “I’ve only experienced it once in my life and it was not really related to football,” he told Press Association Sport. “At that time I was affiliated to PSG’s academy and there were a couple of us aged 13 or 14 coming out of a first-team game at Parc de Princes. “We were on the concourse and a bottle of alcohol was thrown at us and smashed on the ground. “We turned around and there were maybe a dozen people insulting us with racist terms but since I’ve turned professional there has been nothing. “Through my foundation in France I’ve always tended to encourage the young people I deal with to forget about racism. “The focus is on the positive of living together whether you are Christian, Muslim, whatever colour you happen to be, it is all about young people forgetting about differences. “I have strongly been in favour of that so maybe I haven’t experienced it (racism) because of that.” A survey published on Tuesday claimed more than half of all professional footballers in England have either witnessed or been subjected to racist abuse in stadiums. The poll of 200 players in the Premier League and Football League was carried out by football’s anti-discrimination group Kick It Out. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse senior point guard Frank Howard could return for 1st game

first_imgSyracuse senior point guard Frank Howard could return to practice about one week before the season opener, SU head coach Jim Boeheim said Friday. That timetable could put him on track to play in Syracuse’s first regular-season game, which is Nov. 6.Howard, wearing a protective boot on his left leg, sustained a basketball-related injury sometime in September. The injury was announced Sept. 14. Howard has not practiced since then. He expects to return to practice in about three weeks, before the Orange’s 2018-19 regular-season opener Nov. 6 against Eastern Washington inside the Carrier Dome.“We expect that, if all goes well, he would be able to practice about a week before our first regular-season game,” Boeheim said Friday afternoon. “If everything goes according to plan.”Howard will begin walking next week without the boot. In the meantime, freshman guard Jalen Carey has taken many of Howard’s point-guard time in practice, Boeheim said. The preseason experience aids in Carey’s acclimation to the SU system, familiarizes him with the running the offense and could set him on track to be Syracuse’s first guard off the bench.“It hurts a little bit,” Boeheim said of Howard’s injury. “But if he was playing and Jalen wasn’t playing, it would hurt Jalen a lot more because he’s learning the system. Frank knows what we do. He sees what’s going on. I thought coming in off the summer and fall that Frank was playing the best that I’ve seen him play here. And I think he’ll get right back to that pretty quickly.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLast season, the Orange went 23-14 overall and 8-10 in conference play. They return all five starters, including Howard, who averaged 14.4 points and 4.7 assists. He shot 37.6 percent from the floor and 32.7 percent from 3-point territory.As a junior last season, Howard improved in his ball handling while limiting his turnovers (3.41 per game), both of which prevented him from playing significant minutes during his first two seasons. In 2017-18, he became the floor general SU needed him to be at the top of the offense, starting in all 37 games and averaging 38.4 minutes per contest.Boeheim said last month that Howard will be “as important” this coming season as he was last year.Syracuse’s first exhibition game is Oct. 25 versus Saint Rose in the Carrier Dome.
