first_imgView comments OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson “Here in England, you don’t protect the players — that is a big mistake. You have to do it for the quality, not quantity. Play every three, four, five days, but not every two days … Look at how many players have muscular injuries in this period. But it doesn’t matter; the show must go on. And that’s why there will be players not fit.”Guardiola’s comments came as Palace’s Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon were ruled out for the remainder of the season. Manager Roy Hodgson said both players had suffered cruciate ligament injuries in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with City.“We won’t see anything of those players for the rest of our season and it is going to be hard for them to get ready even for the start of next season, because these are serious injuries,” Hodgson said after Palace’s 2-1 win at Southampton on Tuesday.Hectic EPL schedule will “kill” the players, warns GuardiolaADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone LATEST STORIES Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola points during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester City and Watford at Etihad stadium, in Manchester, England, Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018.
