68e Mostra de Venise : le palmarès !

Le palmarès de la 68e Mostra de Venise est connu. C’est le long métrage “Faust” du réalisateur russe Alexandre Sokurov qui remporte le prestigieux Lion d’Or. Michael Fassbender remporte la Coupe Volpi du Meilleur acteur pour sa prestation de sex-addict dans “Shame”.

Darren Aronofsky et son jury ont dévoilé ce samedi le palmarès de la 68e Mostra de Venise. C’est le long métrage Faust du réalisateur russe Alexandre Sokurov qui remporte le prestigieux Lion d’Or., déjouant les pronostics qui voyaient le Carnage de Polanski rafler la mise. Inspiré du classique de Goethe, le film évoque la corruption du pouvoir en suivant le quotidien du Docteur Faust. Le Lion d’Argent, qui récompense la mise en scène, revient au réalisateur chinois Shangjun Cai pour le film Ren Shan Ren Hai, fameux “film surprise” de la manifestation.

Michael Fassbender remporte, et ce n’est pas trop une surprise, la Coupe Volpi du Meilleur acteur pour son impressionnante prestation de sex-addict new-yorkais dans le Shame de Steve McQueen, alors que la Coupe Volpi de la Meilleure actrice revient à Deanie Ip pour son rôle dans le film A Simple Life. Le Prix du Jury est attribué au film italien Terraferma, alors que le Prix du Meilleur scénario tombe dans l’escarcelle des scénaristes grecs du film Alps. Pour retrouver la Mostra en images, rendez-vous mardi pour notre émission Carnets de Voyage spéciale Venise !

Report dismisses new Arsenal offer for Aubameyang as Chelsea circle

Arsenal have yet to offer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new deal to extend his time in north London with Chelsea keeping a close eye on proceedings, according to reports.

L’Equipe claimed yesterday that Arsenal had ‘offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a contract extension’ with the Gabon international approaching the final year of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

At 30, Aubameyang’s next contract is likely to be his last big deal before retirement and, with his scoring record, clubs will be queuing up to sign him on a free from next summer.

Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been previously linked with a move but French champions PSG have also emerged as contenders in recent weeks.

And ESPN now claim that Arsenal have ‘not yet offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new contract’ with ‘no extension on the table for Aubameyang to agree or reject’.

The report goes on to say that ‘the two parties have not even started concrete talks’ over a possible new deal with Chelsea – who are also interested in Liverpool target Timo Werner – ‘monitoring’ the situation.

Keown: Wenger is ‘perfect answer’ to become new Arsenal chairman

Martin Keown thinks Arsene Wenger would be the “perfect answer” for Arsenal as they look to appoint a successor to Sir Chips Keswick as chairman.

The Gunners announced on Thursday that Sir Chips had decided to retire after seven years as chairman but Sky Sports claim that Arsenal ‘will not seek to appoint a new chairman, with the board now consisting of Stan Kroenke, Josh Kroenke, Lord Harris and Ken Friar’.

Wenger, who left Arsenal as their manager in 2018, has been weighing up his options since departing the Emirates Stadium and Keown thinks it would be “special” to see him back as the club’s chairman.

Keown told talkSPORT: “Sir Chips is somebody who had been there for 15 years, took over from Peter Hill-Wood, so I think the club have been respectful with the work he’s done there.

“It would be something special to see Arsene Wenger come onto the board.

“I don’t think so somehow, I think he’s said recently he doesn’t want to do that, never saw himself as someone who would sit on the board but they could do a lot worse.

“You know that I feel that would be almost the perfect answer for Kroenke, the young Josh Kroenke, he needs that older person perhaps around, someone with the experience.

“Other people would think that it would be intimidating for [Mikel] Arteta – I don’t think so.

“If you’re a successful-type personality, you don’t really mind who else is in the building. You embrace that knowledge that could come in through the door.

“So I would applaud that if Arsenal Football Club were to bring Arsene Wenger onto the board.”

Liverpool ‘would like to offer €60m’ plus a player for defender

Liverpool are prepared to offer a huge transfer fee plus a player to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.

The Reds and Manchester United have both been linked with a huge move for the centre-back this summer, despite the coronavirus pandemic likely to reduce spending in the next transfer window.

At the beginning of May, Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that Liverpool are ‘on pole’ for Koulibaly, ahead of arch-rivals Man Utd, with their ‘prestige’ giving them the advantage over other sides.

Liverpool are the current Champions League holders, while the Merseysiders are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and look set to be crowned champions if the season can be finished.

And now Napoli Magazine (via Sport Witness) claim that Liverpool ‘would like to offer €60m’ plus a player for Koulibaly.

Despite the current situation, Napoli continue to value the 29-year-old at €100m and aren’t interested in the Reds’ offer.

The report adds that only Divock Origi would interest Napoli if they were to take a fringe player off Liverpool as part of the transfer.

Kick It Out urges all players to follow Liverpool example

The chairman of Kick It Out has suggested that every Premier League footballer could ‘take the knee’ in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign in protest at the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis.

Liverpool’s players made the powerful gesture during training at Anfield on Monday afternoon, posting the image across social media.

This weekend Jadon Sancho revealed a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ t-shirt when scoring for Borussia Dortmund – which earned him a booking – while Marcus Thuram ‘took the knee’, a non-violent protest which was the brainchild of the NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Kick It Out chairman Sanjay Bhandari would like to see all Premier League players make the same gesture when the season resumes on June 17.

“I’m not sure how you can sanction Marcus Thuram,” said Bhandari in The Guardian.

“I don’t think he’s done anything wrong. He’s just taken a knee. I wonder if that’s the thing I would encourage if players want to protest. If you score a goal and take a knee could everyone do that? Not just the black players. The white players too – everyone.

“Every player should do it. It should be teams doing it. You saw the Erling Haaland celebration after the first game back where all the Borussia Dortmund players did the social-distancing celebration.

“They could all take a knee. Racism’s not about black players or brown fans. It’s about all of us. Racism corrodes society and we’re all hurt by it. Everyone should want to demonstrate their solidarity and disgust.

“I would like to encourage the players to protest if they want to but I would also like to encourage them to do it in a way that doesn’t expose them to unnecessary sanction.

“If they could do that by taking a knee, well if every player did that it would be quite a powerful message. I would be interested to hear what the authorities thought of that, whether it would constitute a breach of the rules. To me that is about demonstrating solidarity.”



“Point Break”, le remake ?

Un remake du “Point Break” de Kathryn Bigelow serait en chantier, alors qu’on célèbre les vingt ans du film.

Après le projet de suite avorté (cf. Point Break Indo), voici le remake : Point break extrême limite, le film culte de Kathryn Bigelow avec Keanu Reeves et le regretté Patrick “Bodhi” Swayze, pourrait avoir droit à son remake, si l’on en croit le communiqué d’Alcon Entertainment (acquéreur des droits) repris par ComingSoon. Lancé vingt ans après l’original, le projet est scénarisé par Kurt Wimmer (déjà à l’oeuvre sur le nouveau Total Recall), également producteur, la joyeuse équipe de remakeurs devant rapidement s’atteler à la recherche d’un réalisateur (Wimmer lui-même, qui avait dirigé Equilibrium ?).

Ce qu’on sait de cette nouvelle version est assez léger pour l’instant : elle se situerait toujours dans “l’univers du sport extrême” (c’est vague, sans jeu de mots), et suivrait encore un agent du FBI inflitrant un cercle criminel, avec une nouvelle approche etc. etc. – bref, c’est un remake…


Man Utd legend Scholes still holds grudge against one ‘big baby’

Man Utd legend Paul Scholes has accused Didier Deschamps of screaming “like a big girl” to get him booked in the 1999 Champions League semi-final against Juventus.

That yellow card meant Scholes missed the final which Man Utd – who were also missing Roy Keane – went on to win in dramatic fashion against Bayern Munich, with two goals in injury time securing a famous triumph.

The Red Devils beat Juventus 4-3 on aggregate in a thrilling semi-final clash but Scholes still thinks he was hard done by with the second leg booking.

On how he felt about missing the final, Scholes told a Goal in One podcast: “You just deal with it don’t you.

“I was gutted at the time but nothing you can do about it. I tackled Deschamps and I’ve seen it a few times, I don’t think it was a foul to be honest with you. It was right in front of the ref, he screamed like a big girl, like a big baby which didn’t help me.

“It got me booked and I missed the final but I may not have played in the final, you never know. We had massive games. Big games against Spurs to win the league, the FA cup final the next Saturday and then the Champions League final. I was devastated to miss it, of course I was. Roy was as well.

“But it didn’t matter who was missing, we still had the capability in the squad, someone can fill in and do just as good a job.”

Agent: Chances of Luiz being at Arsenal next season ‘very high’

David Luiz has no intention of leaving Arsenal with the chances of the Brazilian being at the Emirates Stadium next season “very high”.

A report on Wednesday claimed that Luiz only signed a deal for an initial 12 months and not the two years reported at the time of his £8m move from Chelsea last summer.

Sky Sports added that the Brazilian will leave Arsenal this summer with Luiz ‘out of contract next month and no negotiations over a new deal planned.’

OPINION: Watch Empty Football on TV and fans are forgotten…

A report on Sunday even claimed that the cost of his one-year deal at Arsenal was closer to £24m when payments to ‘intermediaries’ (£6m) and Luiz’s £10m salary are taken into account.

Despite rumours Luiz won’t be there next season, his agent Kia Joorabchian insists there is a “very high” chance that the Brazilian will stay at the Emirates Stadium.

“He’s very happy at Arsenal,” Joorabchian told Sky Sports. “He has an extremely good relationship with both the coach and the sporting director. He has good relationships all throughout the club, right up to the owner. He respects everybody.

“These contract situations, these renewals, if he stays or if he goes… will all sort themselves out when we get back to some kind of ‘new’ normal [after coronavirus].

“David will sit down with Arsenal before the season begins, have his conversations and they will both decide if he will stay or not. That will come before the season starts. The chances are very high [of Luiz being at Arsenal next season].

“There is no desire to leave. But again, we are going to live in a ‘new’ normal, we will have to see what Arsenal’s position will be. But I believe there is a wish from both sides to continue.”

Man Utd reach loan agreement to keep Ighalo until Jan 2021

Man Utd have reached an agreement to keep Shanghai Shenhua striker Odion Ighalo at the club until January 2021, according to his agent

Ighalo made his shock deadline-day switch from Shanghai Shenhua in January and the ex-Watford striker has impressed the Old Trafford faithful.

The 30-year-old has scored four goals in three starts for the club he has supported since childhood but adding to his eight appearances has been complicated by the coronavirus crisis.

The Daily Mail claimed last Monday that Man Utd had ‘hit a brick wall’ in their attempts to extend his loan with Shanghai Shenhua rejecting ‘United’s requests to keep Ighalo at Old Trafford for another three months’.

Instead, Shanghai were apparently ‘demanding that the Nigerian striker rejoins them to prepare for the start of the delayed Chinese Super League season’.

However, his agent, Atta Aneke, has told Nettavisen that Ighalo is close to extending his loan, he said: “We are nearing an agreement with Manchester United on an extended loan. The agreement will mean that Ighalo will remain with them until January 2021.”

When asked when the agreement would be ready, Aneke claimed “during the day” yesterday with Nettavisen adding that there has been ‘no discussion of an option in the agreement where United can make the agreement permanent’.

Ronaldo names Liverpool star and target in five best players

Ronaldo ranks Liverpool striker Mo Salah and imaginary transfer target Kylian Mbappe among his five favourite current players.

The legendary Brazilian has a clear “number one”, followed by players from the Premier League, La Liga and Ligue Un.

He also feels “the best players are in Spain, or at least, most of them”.

Top ten players football deserved to see without injuries

“Messi, of course,” he told AS of his favourite player. “He is number one, he is a talent that will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar.

“I also like Salah, Hazard, Neymar, I love watching him play.”

Salah has 20 goals in 40 appearances for Liverpool this season, and sits joint-third in the Premier League Golden Boot stakes as he seeks to become only the third player in history to win three in a row.

Mbappe, who is destined to be forever linked with a fanciful move to join the Egyptian on Merseyside, has an even more impressive 30 goals in 33 games for PSG.

Ronaldo is fond of the fifth player on his list but was keen to play down comparisons.

“Many people say that he looks like me,” he said. “He has a lot of speed, he finishes well, he has great movements, he hits excellent with both legs, he has an incredible stride.

“We have similar things, but I never liked the comparisons, especially between players of different generations, because the situations are different.

“It is not clear that the Premier League is better than La Liga. Perhaps in television income the clubs receive more, but the best players are in Spain, or at least, most of them.”
