Pep Guardiola eases fears over new Ilkay Gundogan injury scare

first_img1 Ilkay Gundogan limped off during Man City’s Carabao Cup win over West Brom Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola eased any worries over Ilkay Gundogan’s fresh injury scare.Leroy Sane’s double earned City a 2-1 Carabao Cup win at West Brom on Wednesday but victory was tarnished when Gundogan limped off in the second half. The midfielder was making his first start since December after recovering from a serious knee injury. But he was injured by Claudio Yacob – who scored the Baggies’ equaliser – when the Argentinian tackled him from behind. Gundogan will have a scan on his left knee – the opposite one than he injured before – and was clearly in pain but Guardiola expects him back soon. He said: “I think it’s not serious, it’s not eight months, but a little injury. Unfortunately the action is tough. He will be back soon hopefully.“Tomorrow we will make a test. The physio and doctor told me it’s not big issue.“I’ll have to review (Yacob’s tackle). It’s from behind but I don’t know if he touched the ball or not. I didn’t see the image. Fortunately Gundogan is coming back soon.“I suffer for him. He was on the grass and at that moment you think the wrong situation. You can’t imagine, for eight months, to be fighting every day alone.”last_img read more

Man, suspected of killing lover, now on the run

first_imgFamily members wondered if she was trying to leave when Weir allegedly pulled the trigger. Weir’s family members could not be reached for comment. Dispatch got the call about 2:30 a.m. Sunday from Weir’s father, Larry, who told them Ramirez had been shot at a home in the 13000 block of Chandler Boulevard, where his son was living with Ramirez and David’s mother, Carmen Weir. Eisenman said it was unclear whether Larry Weir discovered Ramirez’s body or was phoned by his son. Carmen Weir was not home at the time, police said. After being notified by police, Ramirez’s parents, who are divorced, sped over from the West Valley. They were met by yellow tape and a secured crime scene. No admittance. One neighbor heard Becky Ramirez scream, “She’s gone! My baby’s dead! Let me see my baby!” Hours later this stretch of suburbia had returned to normal. “When we drove by, the tape was off and you wouldn’t know anything ever happened. My niece’s car was still parked in the driveway,” said Ramirez’s aunt Rachel Pozo, 54, of Winnetka. Police were searching for information about Weir’s whereabouts. Teresa Ramirez said Weir has a brother in Mexicali, Mexico, and that he speaks Spanish fluently. Weir left in his charcoal gray 2003 Ford Mustang. He has a record of burglary, theft and narcotics violations and is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information regarding Weir or the homicide can call Los Angeles Police Department Van Nuys detectives at (818) 374-9500.

SHERMAN OAKS – Vicky and David were high school sweethearts. They shared the same home on Chandler Boulevard, the same birth date and the same interests. David Allan Weir, 23, was Vicky Ramirez’s first love. But their seven-year romance had unraveled and early Sunday morning, Weir shot and killed his 21-year-old lover, police said. Now Weir, with a criminal track record, is on the lam and Ramirez’s family members are left to wonder how they could have prevented this tragedy.

Nothing,” said Teresa Ramirez, Vicky’s older sister. True, Ramirez had begun taking nursing classes and told family members she was planning to leave Weir. And two months ago, he was arrested on suspicion of possession of narcotics and was free on bail, said police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman. But there were no signs that Weir had abused Ramirez in the past and nothing to indicate he would take her life, family members said. Ramirez was ready to walk away from her job at Weir’s bar, Lucerna, in Van Nuys, and move in with Teresa. “The best thing she could have done was just to leave that bastard,” said Alex Panameno, her brother-in-law. last_img read more
