He had hoped to impress the onlookers in the French capital and become the club’s long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani. But, even though the Argentine has scored an impressive 12 goals in 20 league outings, he has struggled with a lack of game-time.

Coach Thomas Tuchel has predominantly utilised Kylian Mbappe as the central striker whilst rotating between Cavani and Icardi. As a result, both the players, the latter, in particular, have found it challenging to make their mark. He hasn’t been helped by the fact that the French football authority made a decision to cancel the Ligue 1 campaign, even though they did award PSG the title. So in general, Icardi’s short loan spell at Parc des Princes can be deemed as a failure.

Juventus are also in the running for wantaway Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, according to L’Equipe, as they want to create a super-team with Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi has told Barca that he wants to leave this summer and that the clause in his contract allowing him to exit for free is still valid due to the extended lockdown. However, the Blaugrana maintains the contract to June 2021 will stand and it’s reported President Josep Maria Bartomeu has even refused to meet with Messi to discuss anything other than an extension. A legal battle is on the way, with numerous clubs ready to swoop in and make the most of the situation. Most agree Manchester City are the favourites due to Pep Guardiola’s presence and their financial clout, followed by Inter and Paris Saint-Germain.Advertisement Loading… read also:Schalke star arrives in Turin ahead of Juventus switch Now L’Equipe claimed that Juventus made ‘a discreet approach’ to Messi’s father, Jorge, who recently purchased a luxury apartment in Milan. It’s certainly tempting to think of eternal rivals Messi and Ronaldo in the same line-up. However, with Juve trying to cut down their immense wage bill, bringing in Messi would be a very risky approach. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
…as Commissioner Benn calls for GECOM to provide free, fair, transparent, nationally and internationally verifiable democratic elections Since his appointment late last year, Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chairman, Justice James Patterson has had a turbulent reign. On Friday, he did not rule out resigning and putting an end to it all.During a press conference at GECOM’s Secretariat, the retired Justice complained about the challenges he is facing at the helm of the entity. When asked whether he would rule out resigning as Chairman, Patterson noted that he would not.He spoke of “machinations” within and out OF GECOM, which were affecting his work. While he declined to go into detail about exactly what these machinations were, Patterson also complained about the court cases the secretariat has become embroiled in.“I personally have done all that is humanly possible, to weld the opposing factions together. It seems that things are getting worse. It seems that the understandable use of the legal system has become a tool of disruption.”“I am not saying that people who are aggrieved should not have access to the courts. But I believe at some time, some lawyer, some member of the petition may file an action in the court deeming, if it comes to that, the misuse of the legal system by any particular individual to have transgressed access to the court and deem him such.”The latest legal challenge against GECOM was a case filed to have 50 names removed from nominator lists for Local Government Elections. The applicants claim their names were fraudulently affixed to the lists and they were barred from removing them by Returning Officers.GECOM has also been hauled to court regarding the 2015 General and Regional Elections. Patterson’s appointment itself, which was under a cloud of controversy, was also challenged at the level of the High Court.After rejecting three lists of nominees submitted by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, President David Granger had gone ahead and appointed retired Justice Patterson as Chairman of GECOM. This decision had been, and continues to be, the centre of contention and debate, especially among civil society.In fact, it was as a result of this that People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Executive Secretary, Zulficar Mustapha approached the High Court to challenge the appointment. But on June 8, 2018, acting Chief Justice Roxane George had ruled that the Constitution of Guyana allowed for the President to unilaterally appoint someone to fill the position of GECOM chair. As such, Mustapha subsequently filed legal proceedings to appeal the High Court decision.Qualifications trump racePatterson also confronted another controversy – the issue of an alleged ethnic imbalance at GECOM. When asked whether deliberate efforts to achieve racial diversity were being made, Patterson contended that deliberate efforts were being made to get the best people and he has “no apologies” for that.“We’re making deliberate efforts to get the best people on the job. Sometimes that collides with ethnic quantities. For example, like in the interior. You don’t expect to find the same racial mix as the coastland.”“Our (focus) is on getting the best people to do the jobs. Personally, I would make no apologies about that. When we have to make a choice, quality trumps race… I don’t see anything wrong with that. I won’t quarrel with anyone who disagrees. I speak for myself.”PPP Commissioners have raised concerns over the Commission’s hiring practises being skewered towards a particular ethnic group and indeed, have lodged a formal complaint with the Ethnic Relations Commission.In their complaint, they had noted that candidates applying for posts at GECOM were being scored and hired based on their ethnicity and perceived political alignment.
