Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may have improved the club’s defense to concede fewer goals but he now has the task of plugging a leak at his club after a clash between team mates in training was reported by the media in vivid detail.
British media reports said defender David Luiz and midfielder Dani Ceballos had clashed in a training session following a late challenge earlier this week, with Luiz drawing blood after hitting Ceballos in the face.
While Ceballos took to Twitter to say the story was “fake,” Arteta said the incident had been resolved but the Spanish boss’ bigger concern was how the story was leaked.
“I don’t like the fact that that incident comes out at all,” Arteta told reporters ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match at Leeds United.
“I will find out where it is coming from and if that is the case, that goes completely against what I expect from each other, the privacy and the confidentiality that we need. There will be consequences.
“It’s a contact sport… Training is very competitive and issues happen a lot of the time.”
Ceballos, who is on loan from Real Madrid for a second season, has been involved in an altercation with a team mate before when he got into a scuffle with Eddie Nketiah during a warm-up session ahead of a match against Fulham in September.
However, the two made up and were all smiles when Ceballos posted an image with the 21-year-old striker after the match with the caption: “No problems here my brother.” (Reporting by Rohith Nair in Bengaluru; Editing by Lincoln Feast.)
Hong Kong Media Mogul Jimmy Lai Detained on Fraud Charges – BNN
(Bloomberg) — Next Digital Ltd. founder Jimmy Lai was taken into custody by Hong Kong police and charged with fraud, marking the outspoken pro-democracy media mogul’s latest run-in with the law as the city cracks down on high-profile dissidents.
Lai, 73, was charged with fraud alongside two Next Digital executives on Wednesday, according to Mark Simon, an aide to the media tycoon, confirming earlier media reports. Lai will probably be released on bail Thursday after a hearing, said Simon, who described the charges as being politically motivated.
Shares of Next Digital, which have been on a roller-coaster ride this year — they’ve hit record lows and 12-year highs in 2020 — were halted from trading in Hong Kong Thursday. They last traded at HK$0.23, down 10% for the year.
Lai’s arrest comes on the heels of another prominent activist, Joshua Wong, being sentenced for more than a year in jail for leading a protest outside of police headquarters last year. The moves represent the latest setbacks for the anti-Beijing movement that paralyzed the Asian financial hub last year. The turmoil prompted China to push through a national security law for the city, giving local authorities broad powers to silence critics.
