Boris Casoy deixa a Bandeirantes e acerta com a Rede TV!

REDETV fará estreias em março

Após quase nove anos na emissora, Boris Casoy deixará a Rede Bandeirantes e irá para a RedeTV!. O contrato do jornalista vence nesta sexta-feira (30) e não será renovado.

Boris decidiu deixar a Bandeirantes e, por consequência, a apresentação do “Jornal da Noite”. Ele já está com tudo acertado para ser o âncora principal do “Rede TV News”, na Rede TV!, a partir da primeira quinzena de outubro.

A Band – e a alta direção da emissora – já foi comunicada sobre a saída do jornalista, e a Rede TV! já tem tudo acertado com ele. À coluna, Boris declarou que a saída “foi de comum acordo, da maneira mais amistosa possível”.

Boris estava cansado de trabalhar naquele horário, mas só tem elogios à Bandeirantes. “Uma casa maravilhosa para trabalhar”. Ele reforça que não tem queixa nenhuma da Bandeirantes.

Em comunicado oficial, a emissora reforçou que a não renovação do contrato foi de comum acordo e definiu o relacionamento com o jornalista como “uma ótima relação profissional”. “O jornalismo da Band produziu ótimos resultados com o Boris e foi um prazer trabalhar com ele”, afirmou na nota o diretor de jornalismo da Band, Fernando Mitre.

Também no comunicado, Boris aproveitou para agradecer à Bandeirantes: “Foi um período fértil na minha vida profissional. A Band, com seu apoio e sua confiança, me proporcionou condições de trabalho que permitiram realizar um bom projeto. Só tenho a agradecer”.

Consultada, a RedeTV! informa que “só irá se manifestar sobre o assunto após o encerramento do contrato do Boris Casoy com a Band”.

O substituto do Boris no “Jornal da Noite”, até segunda ordem, será o Antonio Pétrin, que já é da casa, saiu do esporte para o jornalismo e sempre fez as folgas do titular.

Boris Casoy estreou na TV em 1961, como repórter da TV Tupi. O jornalista também teve passagens pelo SBT e pela Record, de onde saiu em 2005. Ele estava na Band desde o começo de 2008.

Hume City’s rising star Kristian Trajceski has been named the inaugural winner of the PS4 Player Pathway Award, winning a training stint with Sydney FC’s youth team.

Following a three-day training camp in Sydney, the highly rated midfielder was announced the award winner at Valentine Sports Park on Wednesday.

The initiative saw 24 young players from around the country come together to show their skills and participate in elite development sessions under the likes of Caltex Socceroos assistant coach Ante Milicic.

The players underwent rigorous physical testing along with tactical and training sessions throughout the week, which culminated in a match on Wednesday afternoon. A judging panel consisting of Milicic, Sydney FC youth coach Rob Stanton and former Socceroos Craig Foster and John Kosmina picking Trajceski as the standout performer.

The 18-year-old now has the opportunity to fast-track his dream of becoming a professional footballer after earning the chance to train with Sydney FC’s Youth League team. “The professionalism here was just a level above the NPL level and I was happy to be here and am obviously so happy to be selected,” said Trajceski.

“The quality was amazing, these were 24 of the best young players from around Australia. “Hopefully I can do well in the two week trial and progress my career. I’d love to sign a pro contract one day, that’s my goal.”

Trajceski, who shone with his technical ability and pace throughout the camp, paid tribute to his club Hume City for the way they’ve nurtured his career.

“I was 15-years-old training with the first team and went on to make my debut. They’ve been great and I’m really thankful for it,” said Trajceski.

“Last year was a big season I think we trained till October, our run in FFA Cup was a good experience and getting the opportunity to play against the likes of Marconi and Melbourne Victory was a great experience.”

Trajceski revealed he is in fact a Victory supporter but said he’d have no problems donning Sky Blue in his bid to press for his first professional contract.

“We’ll see how I go throughout the trials and see where it takes me,” said Trajceski.

“They chose me for a reason I guess.”

Brisbane Roar´s Brett Holman praises stars’ influx into Hyundai A-League

New signing Brett Holman in action for Brisbane Roar.

Brett Holman has declared the migration of Australia internationals to the Hyundai A-League over the past two years is a “massive compliment” to the competition.

Holman, one of Australia’s heroes at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, has joined Australia’s all-time leading goalscorer Tim Cahill (Melbourne City), plus Rhys Williams (Perth Glory), James Holland (Adelaide United) and James Troisi (Melbourne Victory) as just some of the Caltex Socceroos to return home for the 2016-17 season.

For Holman, who has spent the past three years playing in United Arab Emirates, seeing the likes of his Roar team-mate Tommy Oar choose to play in Australia underlines the strides the A-League has made over 11 years.

“You’re talking about good quality players, national team players, who aren’t choosing something else but looking at the A-League and saying ‘this is positive for my career’,” Holman told reporters on Wednesday in Melbourne.

“That is a massive compliment for the A-League to say this is how we’re progressing.” Holman fronted journalists alongside Cahill and Sydney FC marquee Bobo in Melbourne as part of an A-League media day less than two weeks out from the new campaign. Cahill claimed he had enjoyed mixing with Holman and Williams, while he had also had the chance to catch up with former team-mates, who are now sitting on benches around the A-League. “Players that I played with are now coaches. You know, ‘Popa’ (Tony Popovic), ‘Musky’ (Kevin Muscat), John Aloisi – seeing them all it brings back great memories,” the Socceroos striker said.

“You can see, even as coaches, they still look in good physical shape.

“I was expecting a few of them to have more weight on them but I was impressed!”

Cahill added: “This is where we’re from. This is where we were brought up and to be finally home as international Australian players, it’s good for us, good for our families and obviously great for the game.”

Caltex Socceroos shine in the Championship

Massimo Luongo on the ball for QPR against Burton Albion in the Championship. 

Caltex Socceroos midfielder Massimo Luongo has inspired QPR in the Championship this morning (AEST), while Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield moved back to the top of the ladder.

In an all-Aussie clash at the Pirelli Stadium, Luongo’s QPR came away with a hard-earned 1-1 draw against Jackson Irvine’s Burton Albion.


Burton looked like getting the three points when Jamie Ward gave the home side the lead on 58 minutes but a superb assist from Luongo led to Rangers’ equaliser 20 minutes from time.

The two Caltex Socceroos both got through an impressive 90 minutes but their sides couldn’t be split in a pulsating Championship clash. Elsewhere, Mooy put in another full-blooded display as Huddersfield held on for a crucial 2-1 win at home to Rotherham.

The result has put the Terriers back on top of the Championship ladder, although Norwich could leapfrog them when the play tomorrow. Mile Jedinak’s Aston Villa had to settle for another draw after they conceded in the 90th minute to draw 1-1 at Barnsley. The Caltex Socceroo skipper played another 90 minutes for the Villans, who have now drawn seven of their 10 matches this season. There was also a draw for Bailey Wright and Preston North End, who were pegged back twice in their 2-2 draw at Birmingham City. Goalkeeper Alex Cisak was involved in a crazy game in League Two, as his Leyton Orient side had two players sent off inside the first 15 minutes, while already trailing 1-0.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Orient only conceded once more – in the 84th minute – as they lost 2-0 at home to Plymouth Argyle.

In League One, James Meredith’s Bradford City have moved up to third spot after a 2-1 win over Fleetwood Town, with the left-back putting in another solid 90 minutes for the hosts.

And in the UEFA Champions League, winger Robbie Kruse watched from the bench as Bayer Leverkusen conceded in the 94th minute as they draw 1-1 away at Monaco.

Sydney FC’s Bobo: ‘everyone’s talking about the Sydney Derby!’

Wednesday, 28 September 2016

Sydney FC’s marquee striker Bobo has claimed he’s been hearing about the derby against Western Sydney Wanderers for two months and can’t wait until the opening round of the Hyundai A-League season.

The Sky Blues haven’t lost to crosstown rivals Western Sydney in the past seven meetings ahead of the Round 1 fixture, which will be held at ANZ Stadium for the first time, with ticket sales indicating it will break the A-League’s attendance record of 55,436 quite easily.

Bobo signed Graham Arnold’s side in August and claims all he’s heard since he arrived in the Harbour City is about the importance of the Sydney derby.


“They’ve been telling me for two months about the game, so it’s been talked about by everyone in the club and I’m really expecting to play the derby,” the Brazilian centre-forward said on Wednesday.

The first two rounds of the 2016-17 season will see derbies in Australia’s two largest cities, with Melbourne Victory set to host Melbourne City at Etihad Stadium on October 15.

That match will be the first of two in a short period between Melbourne’s two A-League clubs after Tuesday night’s Westfield FFA Cup semi-final draw pitted Victory and City against each other.

The extra Melbourne derby will be held on either October 18 or 26.

City’s guest marquee Tim Cahill told reporters that although “derbies are always nice”, he cannot afford to look too far ahead with Socceroos and other club commitments before the FFA Cup semi-final.

“I think it’s nice to play against a big team, another derby [but it’s] not something that I’m really focused on, to be totally honest with you,” he said.

“We’ve got Wellington to look forward to [in Round 1], we know we’ve got two derbies coming shortly after and then we’ve got Perth [in Round 3].”
