Ron Washington said he resigned as the manager of the Texas Rangers earlier this month because he was unfaithful to his wife.On Sept. 5, the Texas Rangers announced Washington had resigned as manager, effective immediately. At the time, no reason was given for Washington’s departure other than that it was to address an off-the-field matter.On Thursday, Washington cleared up some of the speculation when he said that after more than four decades of marriage he had cheated on his wife.“I made a mistake and I’m embarrassed, more than I’ve ever been in my life. I don’t run when I make a mistake. And when you put yourself in situations you own it. Those are the type of things my wife would always say to me,” Washington said. “I was not true to my wife. After 42 years, I broke her trust. I’m here today to own that mistake and to apologize to her and to those I disappointed, and those who have trusted in me and I let them down.”Washington offered no further details about the dalliance and did not reveal whom he cheated with.Washington talked about telling his wife to quit her job when he was 22 years old when he said he figured out the game and felt he had “arrived.”“Today, I’m at a very low time in my life. I’m sorry for breaking the trust that I had with my wife and for disappointing my players, for disappointing my coaches, for disappointing Major League Baseball and for disappointing the Texas Rangers. All I ask is for your forgiveness and your understanding. I also ask that you respect our privacy as we go on with our lives. This matter is certainly personal, and we’re trying hard to put it behind us.”After his announcement, Washington took no questions from the media. He walked over toward the exit door, put an arm around his wife and walked out the door.
Torino manager Walter Mazzarri was left flabbergasted by the lack of intervention from VAR as his side lost 1-0 to Juventus on SaturdayCristiano Ronaldo’s 70th-minute penalty proved to be the difference as Torino fell to their fourth defeat this season.However, the Bulls were denied two penalty appeals after striker Andrea Belotti was pushed in the area before Simone Zaza was later shoved by Juventus’ Alex Sandro.“An unfortunate incident proved decisive,” said Mazzarri, according to Football-Italia.“Perhaps there could’ve been a penalty or two in our favour, we certainly got that impression… In other games, VAR went back to look at this sort of situation.“Belotti was jumping to head the ball, which is his specialty, and he has a good chance of scoring if he connects with it cleanly. If you are pushed when mid-air, in my view that is a clear penalty.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“People say we complain, but since the last time there was a meeting about VAR, they have generally gone to check on incidents. Belotti and Zaza appealed and asked for it to be viewed on VAR.”Although the Italian was pleased with the way his side performed against Juventus on the night.“I have to compliment my lads, because they put in a strong performance and played on a par with a tank like Juventus,” added Mazzarri.“In these cases, the incidents ultimately make the difference. We lost Salvatore Sirigu to injury early on, but Ichazo did well too. It’s a pity to have missed out on a point that we would’ve deserved.“You can take something from Juve only if they underestimate you, but they rested Giorgio Chiellini in the Champions League midweek, which shows how much they were thinking about this derby.”

Medina – February 3, 2019 The Qatari national team won the AFC Asian Cup for the first time ever, but the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts don’t want it to end there.“The same scenario played out today, as we went behind.”“What is very important for me, is not only performances,” explained Zaccheroni.“The performance in the first half was aggressive and I thank them for fighting in the game. I told them what matters is to evolve gradually, from one game to the next.”“We will correct all the mistakes and look at the mistakes we made and learn lessons from them in the next game against India,” he concluded.
