Occupation footballer Benzema in extortion case is at the end of June

7:14 pm: The appeal that French footballer Karim Benzema has filed against his conviction for the extortion of his former teammate Mathieu Valbuena is due June 30 and July 1 in Versailles. A spokesman for the court confirmed this on Tuesday.

In 2015, Benzema is said to have encouraged Valbuena, who was then his teammate with the French national team, to pay money to blackmailers who threatened to distribute a sex video of Valbuena. It reportedly involved an amount of 150,000 euros that had to be paid to a friend of Benzema to prevent the images of the sex tape from leaking.

Verona one duel without a hard core after racist chants

5:52 p.m.: Hellas Verona will have to do without the support of the hard core in the upcoming home game in the Italian league. They are not welcome after racist chants in Sunday’s encounter with Napoli (1-2), the Italian Football Association has decided.

“I said to the coach: listen, we have to win this game,” said Towns. “And I’m going to do whatever it takes. If you let me play 44 to 48 minutes, I’ll take care of it. That’s the mindset I started with. I had to dominate and play my best game.” This season, no player had reached 60 points. LeBron James of the Lakers and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks both had 56 points.

Stephen Curry graced his 34th birthday with a score of 47 points. He saw his Golden State Warriors team beat Washington Wizards 126-112.
