O’Leary’s cash bonus was around 92 per cent of the maximum he could have received and took his total remuneration for the year to March to €3.5million – including €2.5million under a long-term incentive plan. 

It said: ‘Given the current state of upheaval in the industry and the uncertain outlook, it is difficult to justify a payment equal to around 92 per cent of maximum opportunity to the chief executive, regardless of performance.’

CARY, N.C. (AP) – Debinha scored twice, including the winner in the 86th minute, and the North Carolina Courage downed the Houston Dash 4-3 in a National Women’s Soccer League fall series match Saturday.

‘They were a big part of my childhood. I went home and away for many years.

I cried all the way home after watching them lose at Bramall Lane in a play-off semi-final when Des Walker scored an own goal.’

Irene and Helga Bejach, aged 13 and 12 respectively, arrived in August 1939, just 17 days before war broke out, and were among the 10,000 Jewish and half-Jewish children who fled to Britain as part of a mass humanitarian rescue effort.

Sir David Attenborough has revealed how he helped reunite the families of two Jewish refugee sisters who fled Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport and were taken in by his parents during the Second World War.

‘Everyone has their own journey. Mine has been a privileged one, I have had a lot of opportunities and I know footballers, friends of mine, who have had difficult upbringings and Suggested Webpage had to go through similarly tough things.’

He developed in the youth ranks at Queens Park Rangers rather than join his father, who saved Forest from administration in 1999 and poured in more than £100million of his personal fortune before stepping down in 2011.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but it was moved to the national CBS broadcast window Saturday after the game between the Portland Thorns and OL Reign was postponed because of poor air quality caused by the wildfires in Oregon.

‘We would like to be competitive in all the competitions and with these players the squad has improved,’ said Ancelotti, who will be without Mason Holgate for the next couple of weeks due to a toe problem. ‘The players who arrived understand that we have a project with ambition for the future.

Feeling compassion for their plight, Attenborough’s parents, Mary and Frederick, decided to take the girls in to their Leicester home, where they would live for the next seven years and become like ‘sisters’ to their three sons, David, Richard and John. 

And, of course, while the step from the straw hats of elite public school at Harrow to the muck-and-nettles of lower-league football was something of a culture shock, playing professional sport is ‘the best job in the world’.

After Sophie Schmidt scored in the 70th to give Houston back the lead, Lynn Williams timed her run well and scored in the 83rd minute to tie it again for the Courage.

Three minutes later, Debinha scored her second goal for the victory.

But Ancelotti must do more than just change players; he needs to change the club’s mentality. Everton have not won an away game at a top-six club since December 2013, a run of 40 matches in which there have been 28 losses.

The addition of James Rodriguez, the Colombia superstar with whom Ancelotti has worked at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, plus the arrivals of Brazil midfielder Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure, did not come cheap but they were his prime targets for the window.

There has been largesse that has not worked out during the past four years under major shareholder Farhad Moshiri, and Ancelotti walked into a club last December that was in desperate need of a shake-up.

‘It’s been a big part of my life in the last couple of years,’ he says. ‘Running trainers are made with synthetics and at the end of their life they take hundreds if not thousands of years to biodegrade.

‘I wanted to have a competitive squad and now I have it, so it is absolutely normal to take more responsibility to bring this team to fight for the first positions in the table. The target is clear – we have to fight for the first positions of the Premier League.’
