Angel Di Maria is excited about making a return to the Champions League with Paris St Germain after missing out last season with Manchester United. Di Maria, who started for the first time for PSG in Friday’s Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux, a game that ended in a 2-2 draw, is expected to be included in the line-up for his side’s Champions League Group A opener against Malmo at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday. “It was tough for me last season as I didn’t play much and it was difficult watching the Champions League on TV after I had won it the season before with Madrid,” he said in an interview with Le Parisien. “It’s a magnificent competition and on Tuesday I will feel the same emotions I’ve had ever since I played my first [Champions League] match for Benfica.” The 27-year-old also says he is happy in France after signing a four-year contract with the defending Ligue 1 champions. Asked about his brief spell in England, Di Maria said: “Honestly, we were not happy. At the beginning, we were a little happy but then things got complicated. “Life in England was difficult and it isn’t easy for a South American. Some people adapt, but for others it is harder.” Di Maria also admits he had a difficult relationship with United’s Dutch coach Louis van Gaal while his family became unsettled when their house in Prestbury, Cheshire, was burgled in February. “I didn’t get on very well with the coach,” he said. “So I believe the decision to join Paris was the best solution. The Argentina midfielder joined PSG this summer in a 63 million euro (£44.3million) transfer from the Barclays Premier League giants. He had only moved to the Red Devils a year earlier, shortly after lifting the Champions League trophy with Real Madrid. Press Association “After the break-in it wasn’t reasonable to stay. My family wasn’t happy, my daughter was suffering, so it was important to leave. “At the end of the season when I left to play in the Copa America I made the decision [to leave], and I saw there was the possibility to join PSG. “I could have joined them a year earlier before I moved to Manchester but it didn’t happen. But I think my destiny was to go to Paris. “From what I’ve seen so far, our life here in France is more like the life we led in Spain or Portugal. And at the moment, we are 100 per cent satisfied.” Di Maria has been dazzled by the talent PSG has, especially that of star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. “I have been fortunate enough to play with (Argentina’s) Leo (Messi), with (Real Madrid’s) Cristiano (Ronaldo) and (United’s Wayne) Rooney, and now Ibra,” he said. “I’m really impressed by his technical quality and his movement. “He is on the same level as Leo and Cristiano.”

An extremely rare male calico kitten was born in West Palm Beach on Friday.Calico cats are almost always female due to the makeup of genetics in the cat. A rare genetic condition can produce a male.That is what happened at a foster care home here. Photo courtesy: WPEC via Kelly Real“Only 1 in 3000 calicos that are born are male. These cats are so rare that they have often been referred to as the “unicorn” of cats,” says Kelly Real, the cat’s caregiver. “Those who have worked in veterinary practice or in shelters can work for years or even decades without ever seeing one in person.”She adds that what makes the cats so rare is that they typically have a genetic abnormality which gives them three sex chromosomes, XXY, also known as Klinefelter Syndrome in humans.
The worst possible nightmare came true for the L.V. Rogers Bombers at the B.C. High School AA Boy’s Soccer Championships.A tired and weary Bomber squad, fresh from a weekend Whitecaps Regional camp, fell 3-0 to Okanagan Mission to open the 16-team tournament Monday in Burnaby.LVR managed to bounce back in game two, riding a Ryan Lewis goal to tie Aldergrove 1-1.”Got (to Burnaby) at 2 a.m. (Monday),” said coach Dave Spendlove, who along with son Jamie, form the sideline staff of the Kootenay champs.”It rained non stop and the boys did not play well losing the first game to Kelowna.”The Bomber worlds collided last week when tournament organizers moved up the AA championships two days. The decision meant most of the Bombers would be in Vernon Saturday and Sunday for the Caps training before traveling late Sunday night for the Lower Mainland. Added to the bad luck was the fact LVR was scheduled to open the tournament Monday at 9:30 a.m.”Against Kelowna we started off like deer in the headlights but came into the game and should have gone in half time two goals up,” Spendlove explained.In the second half, however, it was Kelowna going up early after LVR failed to clear the ball properly following an Okanagan Mission corner.OKM scored twice on defensive errors by the Bombers to put the game away. The goals cam after LVR missed on a three-on-one opportunity.Game two started like game one ended with Aldergrove granted a gift goal to open the contest.That was it for Aldergrove as the Bombers took over the game, pressuring the Fraser Valley team the rest of the game.The tying marker came following a six-way passing play with Lewis calmly depositing the ball into the vacant net.LVR returns to the pitch Tuesday to conclude the round robin draw with a game against West Van’s Sentinel.The playoff round follows Tuesday afternoon with the final seeding games set for Wednesday.
Il FORNAIO: A Group I winner at age three in his native Argentina, Il Fornaio, a 5-year-old horse by the Lure stallion, Orpen, has been idle since July 11, 2015 and will make his U.S. debut for trainer Ron McAnally on Saturday. Second, beaten a neck, in a one mile turf Group I on June 27, 2015, Il Fornaio was a two-time allowance winner sprinting seven furlongs on turf at age three, showing ample early foot on both occasions. Owned by Edward Goldstone, Il Fornaio has four wins from nine Argentine starts. ARCADIA, Calif. (March 30, 2016)–Course specialist Guns Loaded heads a field of nine older horses in Saturday’s Grade III, $100,000 San Simeon Stakes at 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s unique hillside turf course. GUNS LOADED: Trained by Doug O’Neill, this 5-year-old Florida-bred gelding by D’wildcat comes off an emphatic 2 ¼ length win over the course in the Joe Hernandez Stakes on Feb. 28, and he seeks his third consecutive win on Saturday. Claimed five starts back, he’s won three out of his five starts for O’Neill and has two wins and a second from five tries down the hillside turf. Owned by Westside Rentals.com, Neil Haymes, Leove Rodriguez or Steve Rothblum, Guns Loaded has an effective stalking style and will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano, who replaces the recently injured Santiago Gonzalez. Guns Loaded is 25-7-3-4 overall with earnings of $346,570. HAY DUDE: Trained by Phil D’Amato, this 6-year-old English-bred gelding was a close second in his only hillside try, the restricted Clockers’ Corner Stakes, five starts back in January, 2015. Owned by Anthony Fanticola and Joseph Scardino, he tried runaway tactics in the Grade II San Marcos Stakes here on Feb. 6, and cuts way back in distance from a mile and a quarter on turf. A sharp gate to wire allowance winner going one mile on turf two starts back on Jan. 14, Hay Dude will likely be mid-pack early in the San Simeon.

Jose Mourinho has refused to be drawn on whether Chelsea would look to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan if the untested Jamal Blackman becomes the only fit number one.A “long-term” knee injury to first choice Thibaut Courtois means Asmir Begovic will get an extended run in the side, with 21-year old Blackman on the bench.Academy product Blackman has yet to play for the Blues, with his only first-team appearance coming for Middlesbrough against Liverpool in the League Cup during a loan spell last season.When asked if he would sign a new keeper should Begovic get injured, Mourinho said: “I would prefer not to think about that.“Our decision was the third choice would be a young English goalkeeper and we think it is a normal decision and a good decision.“Now Jamal becomes the second. He didn’t play one match in the Premier League or in the Championship but he has good potential.”Mourinho added: “The third goalkeeper is always a complicated situation.“You can be third and not sit on bench all season but you can play a big game. In my first spell Hilario played against Barcelona in the Champions League and he was the third goalkeeper.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
The tranquility of the Menara gardens in Marrakech. .(Image: Wikimedia) There’s a famous lyric from “Star Trekkin’”, the song that parodies cult film and TV series Star Trek, in which Mr Spock warns Captain James Kirk: “It’s life, Jim … but not as we know it.”A few years ago, when I told a friend I would be travelling to Morocco he reminded me I shouldn’t expect that country to be at all similar to South Africa just because they are part of the same land mass. “It’s Africa, Jim,” he affirmed, “… but not as we know it.”At the time, this seemed to me a rather inappropriate remark – certainly not in keeping with the pan-African sentiments that those of us who are citizens of African countries are encouraged to inculcate.After spending some time in Morocco, however, I found that I had to agree with him. South Africa and Morocco are not only on opposite ends of the continent; as those who have visited or lived in both countries can attest, they often seem to be worlds apart.This is, of course, as it should be. Essentialised notions of Africa, according to which African countries are seen as generic entities with more or less the same histories, cultural practices, world views and political structures (with, at best, scope for a little variation on the theme), are both inaccurate and dangerous. They reproduce precisely the kind of generalisation that facilitated the colonisation of the so-called dark continent.On the other hand, precisely because colonialism brought about artificial national borders that did not take into account the clustering of different ethnic groups, cultures and tribes – which has resulted in countless instances of internecine conflict or civil war across the continent – it is perhaps appropriate to discuss characteristics of the various regions.Southern African countries share languages, show similarities in climate or topography and have strong cross-border cultural, political and socio-economic links. The same is true of regional affiliations in western, eastern, central and northern Africa.In particular, world history has shaped the countries to the north of the Sahara desert in ways that are distinct from sub-Saharan Africa. Morocco has been influenced as much by French, and more recently, Spanish incursions as by interaction with Arabic peoples of the eastern Mediterranean. Before that, there were the Romans and Phoenicians.Throughout, the Berbers or imazighen have asserted their presence as the indigenous people of this northwest corner of Africa.Rich, complex historyAs a result of this rich and complex history, a country has been forged that is in some ways recognisably African – whatever that may mean – but that, to those of us from southern Africa, also feels enticingly exotic. And there is no place in Morocco more enticing than the all-singing, all-dancing, all-suffering, all-smiling, all-smelling, all-selling city of Marrakech.Rabat is the capital of al-Magrib, the Kingdom of Morocco; Casablanca is its largest city, with a certain appeal to fans of the iconic 1942 film starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman; Fez has the renowned Fes el Bali, a remarkably well-preserved old town or medina.But the Red City of Marrakech, right in the centre of the country, is the beating heart of Morocco.I arrived there as a dusty late afternoon was turning to red-earth dusk. Looking out over a thousand rooftops, I surveyed a scene marked by haggard palm trees and crumbling sandstone towers. The smoke was rising from the cooking fires of the main square – Djemaa El Fna, the “place of the dead” or “place of the vanished mosque” – and the buskers and snake-charmers were packing up for the day; soon the real entertainment of song, comedy and serious debate would begin, lasting deep into the night.From speakers mounted on the minarets of mosques, muezzin singers called the Islamic faithful to prayer. I wandered away from the busy square, tracing a path through quiet alleyways and into the dim, labyrinthine passages of the souk, or market. Merchants sipped on sweet mint tea and discussed religion. A young couple shared a brief farewell and a kiss before approaching the separate male and female entrances to a hamam, or steam bath.Vast differencesA few days later, I travelled south to Ouzoud – an isolated spot where a waterfall cascades down a 100m precipice, feeding a fertile valley in the foothills of the High Atlas mountains. Here, amongst a small Berber community of subsistence farmers, I felt I was back in Africa.Unfortunately, there was to be no reverie of belonging. I was invited to a village wedding feast one evening: a kind gesture by my hosts but, I realised with disappointment, an imposition on my part. The bonjours and giggles of the young boys in attendance reminded me that I was an intruder, plainly a foreigner who did not fit in.It was time to leave, but I did so without any sense of sadness at being an outsider. For South Africans, as for tourists from other African countries – and indeed, perhaps more significantly, from countries elsewhere in the world – it’s good to be reminded that a vast continent must contain vastly different peoples and places.Africa cannot be condensed into a single, simple idea – a blank space on the map – and the dizzying difference of Morocco provides ample proof of this truth.
