English Premier League: Although not willing, Rennes players give up Edouard Mendy to join Chelsea

Bola.com, Jakarta – Rennes player, Damien Da Silva, resigned if Edouard Mendy chose to join Chelsea. Although he seems unwilling, he is aware that his teammates deserve the opportunity to play in the Premier League in his career.

Chelsea indeed, he is not playing games in an effort to recruit a new goalkeeper to compete for the Premier League trophy this season. As reported Daily Mail, Monday (7/9/2020), The Blues made Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as the main target.

Mendy is the goalkeeper recommended by Technical and Performance Advisor Petr Cech. Before wearing a Chelsea uniform, Petr Cech also played in Rennes from 2002-2004.

To secure Edouard Mendy’s services, Chelsea reportedly paid £ 18 million (Rp.351 billion). However, this figure is likely to balloon, because the 28-year-old goalkeeper is still under contract with Rennes until June 30, 2023.

Knowing this, Damien Da Silva can only surrender. Even though there was an impression of being unwilling, he considered Edouard Mendy to deserve a special opportunity with a bigger team.

“Call us selfish, because we are not willing to lose Edouard Mendy,” Damien Da Silva told Telefoot.

“But yes, this is football with all the transfer maneuvers in it. Mendy is a great goalkeeper who deserves what is in front of him right now,” he said again commenting on Edouard Mendy’s chance to join. Chelsea.

Cost of student life: Paris remains the most expensive city in France

This was already the case in previous years, it is still relevant this year: unsurprisingly, Paris remains the most expensive city for students, according to the annual ranking of the National Union of Students of France ( Unef), published this Monday. According to the barometer, studying in the capital costs an average of 1,318.31 euros per month, an amount up by around 30 euros compared to 2019. The cheapest student city remains Limoges, with monthly expenses s’ amounting to 790.75 euros.

Nationally, the average cost of student living increases by 3.69%. Lyon is the city experiencing the most significant increase: according to data collected by UNEF in partnership with Loc-Service, a specialist in rental and shared accommodation between individuals, a student must pay an average of 1,019 there, 33 euros per month, which represents an increase of 57.21 euros, or nearly 6%, per additional month compared to the previous year. Rent remains the most important expense item for students. In Lyon, its average cost stands at 564 euros per month, up 5.42% compared to previous years, when that of Paris is 885 euros per month.

A burden that puts a strain on students’ budgets and that their associations and unions are campaigning to alleviate: “Every year, we see that rents are increasing, and that for small surfaces increases more than for large surfaces”, explains Mélanie Luce, president of the UNEF, contacted by Release. “The State must put pressure on local authorities to take charge of student precariousness, pleads the young woman. This involves controlling rents, but also sanitation plans to avoid tragedies like the one in Marseille rue d’Aubagne, where a student lost her life. “

Territorial disparities are also significant in terms of transport. Here again, it is in the Ile-de-France region that students must put more money in their pockets, with an annual cost of 342 euros. Limoges retains its title of the cheapest city for this expense item, with an annual amount of 90 euros, a subscription nearly four times cheaper than in the Paris region. Gaps that highlight “Territorial inequalities” deep, not necessarily justified by the size of the municipalities: “In a large city like Toulouse, the annual cost in transport for a student is 103 euros, while for a medium-sized city like Rennes, it is 300 euros per year”, explains Mélanie Luce.

«There are big disparities depending on where you study ”, often due to the fact that some cities do not set up preferential rates for young people, regrets the president of the UNEF. While these initiatives help reduce student budgets, they are not sufficient for the union, which is calling for the establishment of total free transport in all student towns.

The future of Cardinal Barbarin takes shape in Rennes and with the Pope

A cardinal about to become soon « simple » chaplain. In celebrating Sunday, June 28, his moving farewell mass in the diocese of Lyon, of which he had taken the lead eighteen years ago, Mgr Philippe Barbarin did not allude, before the crowd of faithful gathered in the primatial Saint- Jean-Baptiste, on the new page he is about to open in his ministry.

→ REPORTAGE. The goodbye moved from Lyonnais to Philippe Barbarin

But two days earlier, in an exclusive interview with RCF’s regional branch – which also covered the four judicial years related to the Preynat case – the archbishop had mentioned his imminent departure for Brittany and had said he was available for the missions entrusted to him by Pope Francis. Visibly appeased, talkative after three months of retreat and silence, he had then announced that he would leave in July to settle on the site of the mother house of the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor, in Saint-Pern, Ille- et-Vilaine.

“Pastoral dimension”

There, with the nuns in the service of the elderly according to the spirituality of Saint Jeanne Jugan (1792-1879), the founder of their community, he will reside in a house at the bottom of the park, welcoming the seminarians of Brittany in propaedeutics. The Archbishop of Rennes, Bishop Pierre d’Ornellas, asked him to give classes at the seminary of Rennes: “I hope I can do it”, confided on the air, with a burst of laughter, Philippe Barbarin, saying “Always happy to do something new”.

This radical change does not seem to cause him any particular apprehensions or concerns. “My real vocation is to be a priest, he assured again. The most beautiful of the priestly dimension is the pastoral dimension, even if I will not have the responsibility of the pastor in a parish which is the most joyful, the most profound thing in the life of a priest or d ‘a bishop. In Saint-Pern, he will meet Bishop Émile Marcus, 90, Archbishop Emeritus of Toulouse from 1996 to 2006. Chaplain of the mother house of the Little Sisters of the Poor since his retirement in 2007, the latter was superior of the seminary of the Carmelites when the Cardinal Barbarin was training there.

The agenda of the emeritus Gaul primate is yet to be fulfilled soon. He will in particular support Bishop d’Ornellas to preside over the confirmations. “I welcome him like a brother. He is a man of God, who is unanimously recognized as a teacher of the Word of God ”, reacted the Archbishop of Rennes in the local press. The ex-archbishop of Lyon is also already asked to preach retreats. He has thus already been invited by Mgr Michel-Marie Calvet, bishop of Nouméa, in New Caledonia, to celebrate the Christmas holidays, where he will then give a retreat to the priests of the diocese.

But it is the Pope who will have priority, since he personally asked the Cardinal to “Stay available”, especially for missions in the Middle East. François indeed knows the investment of Archbishop Barbarin with Christians in the region, even though he returned from three months in Israel and Palestine. The twinning between the Iraqi city of Mosul and the capital of Gaul owes much to the friendship born between the ex-archbishop and Cardinal Louis Raphaël Iis Sako, patriarch of the Chaldean Church. Other projects, like a pilgrimage in November to the Holy Land, are also taking shape.

On the airwaves of RCF, the atypical and bubbling cardinal had still insisted on leaving aside the institution and the public scene to urge interiority: “The only thing that interests me is that people read the Word of God: turn off the television and turn on the gospel. If it is a word from God, it must be our compass. The word of God must continue to run! “

Coronavirus. “The problem is not the beaches”, underlines this Rennes infectiologist

Reopen the beaches? More and more voices, elected officials from the coast, inhabitants, associations, sportspeople and skippers are calling for it. Many denounce a “Parisian” vision of deconfinement, in which the beaches would necessarily be crowded and visited by tourists.

“The problem is not the beaches, recalls Matthieu Revest, professor at the University of Rennes 1, infectious disease specialist, and medical manager for emerging infectious diseases at the Rennes University Hospital. There is no more danger on beaches than anywhere else and the decision to close them is not medical. The risk is that, by reopening them, the authorities fear that they will find many people there and that social distancing can no longer be applied to them. “

“The disease is scary”

But can not the principle of reason apply? The Breton beaches are not Biarritz and walkers have plenty of room to cross paths at a good distance. “I know the Breton coast well and there are beaches where I am sure I can walk without anyone next to it, that’s true”, admits Matthew Revest. But the infectious disease specialist insists: “Social distancing remains essential at least for several weeks”.

He is also not worried about the gradual deconfinement from May 11. “The majority of people will remain attentive to barrier gestures. The disease is scary, it must not be forgotten. “

“People wonder and will pay attention”

For him, all the measures he sees taking place in schools, shops, businesses, contribute “To keep up the pressure and allow everyone to become aware of the issue. All these questions that we hear from right to left, it shows, precisely, that people are asking questions and that they will pay attention. I’m pretty optimistic about people’s civility. “
