first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Arsenal make contact with Paulo Sousa as search for next manager intensifies Arsenal have approached Paulo Sousa about their current managerial vacancy (Picture: Getty)Arsenal have made contact with the representatives of Bordeaux manager Paulo Sousa as the north London club intensifies its search for Unai Emery’s permanent successor.Emery was sacked last month following a disastrous run of form which culminated in a shambolic Europa League defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt, played out in front of a half empty Emirates Stadium.Club legend Freddie Ljungberg has been placed in temporary charge with Per Mertesacker, Arsenal’s academy director, promoted to the first team coaching set-up.Ljungberg recorded the first victory of his interim reign last night as the Gunners came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1 but, despite an element of the feel-good factor returning after a first win in 10 games, the Arsenal hierarchy continue to broaden their search for a new head coach.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAccording to L’Equipe, Arsenal have made contact with Sousa’s entourage and would be able to prise him from Bordeaux were they to activate his buyout clause, which they report to be between two and three million Euros.

GASA to finalise IGG team by next week

first_imgALTHOUGH a few swimmers have already been shortlisted, the Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) is still deciding on the 12-member team who will represent Guyana in this year’s Inter-Guiana ‘Goodwill’ Games to be held in Guyana from October 20 to 24.According to a representative for the team, Leon Seaton, the association is unable at this point in time to do a swimming trial activity, so instead will determine who make the final cut by assessing the performance of the swimmers, thus far for the year.GASA is expected to select a team of six boys and six girls to participate in the event.“What I can say is that there is a proposed team but I would choose not to comment on that until the team is finalised. I can’t say at this point in time but early next week.“There are a number of factors that will be taken into consideration. What we’re using to come up with the team will be previous meets. We don’t have enough time to do a swim-off.” Seaton told Chronicle Sport yesterday.According to Director of Sport Christopher Jones, no deadline has yet been given to the various associations for the submission of their team members. However, Jones is set to meet with representatives from the different sporting disciplines tomorrow.Swimming is one of seven sport disciplines listed in the annual Games, the others being athletics, table tennis, basketball, volleyball and futsal.The Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) has already named its 28-member team to represent Guyana, following their IGG trials held last Sunday at the National Track and Field Centre at Leonora. Volleyball also held trials a few weeks ago.The various teams will be competing against respective teams from Suriname.As previously reported, the tri-nation competition is going on without participation from French Guiana in this year’s event, hence it is being labelled a ‘Goodwill’ event.last_img read more
