AC Milan told The Associated Press that the clubs former midfielder will sign a contract, but that the formalities would follow his arrival in Italy on Thursday.

"I coached him," Ancelotti said. "Hes got a strong personality and he will be capable of handling this new experience.

Louis Blues are reportedly taking restricted free agent forward Vladimir Sobotka to arbitration.SAO PAULO - Brazil football officials and first-division teams have met to try to clarify a controversial change in the way referees have been giving handball decisions, hoping to ease criticism from clubs, coaches and the media.The number of penalty kicks awarded has increased significantly since a new recommendation from the Brazilian confederation prompted referees to be more rigorous when giving handball, especially inside the penalty area.The change created confusion and drew complaints from virtually all parties involved. Referees considered going on strike because of the lack of respect for officials.In the meeting on Thursday that lasted nearly two hours in Rio de Janeiro, the confederation said it has not changed international football laws but warned players they could be penalized for handball even if the contact was not deliberate.The law hasnt changed, said Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda, a former FIFA official used as an instructor by the confederation. There was some miscommunication, some people didnt quite understand the recommendations.The confederation insists it did not tell referees to give a free kick every time the ball touches a hand or arm, but said players should not put themselves at risk of blocking a shot with their hands when inside the area.Players need to show the referees that they are trying to avoid hand contact, said Larrionda, who refereed in two World Cups.He was the official who didnt see Frank Lampards shot cross the goal-line in Englands 4-1 loss to Germany in the second round of the 2010 tournament.There have been disputed handball decisions in nearly every round since the new recommendations were introduced in Brazil a few weeks ago. Derrick Kindred Jersey. Referees started blowing for handball almost every time the ball touched a players hand inside the penalty area, apparently regardless of intention to block shots or crosses. Some referees are being more rigorous than others, prompting even more confusion and complaints.Referees, saying that they are only following the confederations advice, last week threatened to halt the Brazilian league unless football officials and the nations sports tribunal took serious actions against those not respecting the officials.When told about the way referees have been officiating in Brazil, FIFA head of refereeing Massimo Busacca recently told Brazilian media that they didnt appear to be following FIFAs recommendations. He said its always up to the referees to try to decide whether players are intentionally using their hands or arms to handle the ball.Referees officiating in the league this weekend, as well as retired referees, participated in Thursdays meeting to speak to the players, who have also been demanding more consistency in the calls. Members of the media also participated.The confederation used nearly 30 videos a€” including from the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, and the Copa Libertadores a€” to try to clarify how handballs are being applied.The confederation did not say whether the meeting came in response to the referees threat to go on strike.___Follow Tales Azzoni at Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
