MARSEILLE, France — Having led Marseille back to the Champions League and united the hard-to-please fans behind him, coach Jorge Sampaoli left the team's preseason preparations in tatters when he quit on Friday. After Marseille announced his departure, Sampaoli claimed his objectives were not met by the club — even though there was seemingly no bitterness between him and club president Pablo Longoria. It seemed to be simply a matter of principle since Sampaoli didn't even ask for compensation. “
MILAN (AP) — Serie A is hailing a change to Italian law that abolishes a three-year limit on contracts for foreign TV rights. The change should also eliminate long delays in formulating contracts. “The new rules will help increase revenue, with bigger returns that will have a favorable impact on the entire soccer system,” Serie A president Lorenzo Casini said on Thursday. Most of Serie A’s foreign rights are managed by the Swiss-based marketing firm Infront in a three-year deal that expires afte

NACI said it will provide recommendations on the type of booster to be given when evidenc
HONG KONG (AP) — Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived Thursday in Hong Kong to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the British handover of a city that his rule has transformed from a global hub known for its political freedoms to one that is much more tightly controlled by the Communist Party.

HONG KONG (Reuters) -There is no reason to change Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" formula of governance, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on a rare visit to the global financial hub after swearing in the city's new leader, John Lee, on Friday. Britain returned Hong Kong to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, with Beijing promising wide-ranging autonomy, unfettered individual rights and judicial independence at least until 2047. China's critics accuse authorities of trampling on those freedoms, unavailable on the authoritarian mainland, with a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on the city in 2020 after mass pro-democracy protests the year before.

Dreaming Roots incorporates dance, music, story-telling, theatre and visual art t
Air Canada will cut dozens of daily flights this summer as the airline grapples with a series of challenges amid soaring demand for travel. The changes would see Air Canada reduce its schedule by 77 round trips — or 154 flights — on average, each day during the months of July and August. "Regrettably, things are not business as usual in our industry globally, and this is affecting our operations and our ability to serve you with our normal standards of care," Michael Rousseau, the airline's pres

Dave Lawrence was on his way to a store in uptown Fredericton when he stumbled across a curious scene. A man was stooped over on the sidewalk frantically scooping up what looked like dozens of small snakes, using a tree branch to scoop them into a little red bucket. "I saw what I thought was a snake, because in one of the photos I posted, it's standing up," said Lawrence. "That's when I looked a bit more to my left, more the entrance way to the Hilltop restaurant, and I saw what looked like two
