Football news LIVE: Cadiz goalkeeper walks across pitch with defibrillator after fan suffers cardiac arrest – latest
Hello football fans
Premier League matches due to take place in London next week could be moved due to police concerns following the Queen’s death.
Elizabeth II died Thursday at the age of 96, marking the end of her historic 70-year reign.
No sporting events are scheduled to take place during Her Majesty’s funeral, scheduled for Monday, September 19.
But millions are due to descend on London on Sunday, which will significantly drain Met resources, to pay their respects to Her Majesty.
This could mean that there won’t be enough officers available for Brentford against Arsenal and Chelsea against Liverpool.
Meanwhile, new Chelsea manager Graham Potter will not be sacked if he fails to make the top four.
Potter has been told that while qualifying for the Champions League is a huge goal this season, it won’t be decisive for his job.
This is a major departure from tradition at Stamford Bridge where he was recognized as the bare minimum to remain in charge.
But new owner Todd Boehly and his fellow directors insist they’re in it for the long haul with Potter, and he’ll have the time it takes.
The former Brighton boss has signed a five-year deal worth more than £10million a year and has been told he will have the full support of the bigwigs at Stamford Bridge.
And Newcastle are in advanced talks to sign former Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.
Magpies number 2 Karl Darlow has suffered a potentially long-term ankle injury, according to Sky Sports.
Toon manager Eddie Howe has now moved to Karius after his contract with Liverpool expired in the summer.
The German keeper hasn’t played football for over a year, with his last games being a loan flop at Union Berlin in the 2020/2021 campaign.
Finally, a fan who fainted in the stands during Cadiz’s clash with Barcelona at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla is in stable condition.
Play was halted after 83 minutes when the players noticed panic in the crowd and were quickly informed that a spectator was suffering from a medical emergency.
Hosts goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma ran to his dugout and picked up a medical kit, which he immediately threw to the crowd.
Play was suspended for a long time until the fan was taken to hospital and according to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs the fan is “now stable”.
