No Cockpit fear at Van Bommel, Van Bronckhorst thinks of World Cup finals

The PSV'ers still slept badly on Wednesday from the narrow 2-1 defeat against FC Barcelona in the Champions League, but the button has been converted and the sights are on the top match against Feyenoord in De Kuip.

“We play a lot of matches, so you have to go through”, says PSV coach Mark van Bommel at the press conference. “It does not matter that we now meet Feyenoord.”

It is no problem for the coach that his team is playing a top match after a tough Champions League match. “After the last match against Barcelona we played against Ajax”, he refers to PSV's 3-0 win in September at the club from Amsterdam.

Cockpit fear

Van Bommel often played in De Kuip (“I always loved it”), but there is such a thing as 'Kuip-vrees'. The feeling that the immense stadium is crippling.

The trainer thinks his team should remain unperturbed. “Whether you're welcomed with flowers or throwing eggs to the bus, you just have to go for it.”

Fine for DJ Khaled and boxer Mayweather for crypto advertising

Music producer DJ Khaled and boxer Floyd Mayweather have to pay tons to the American stock market watchdog SEC. They praised cypress coins on social media without making it clear that they were being paid to advertise.

“Buy them fast, I've got mine,” Mayweather twittered to nearly 8 million followers. Later he predicted to “make a $ hit t $ on of money” from a crypto coin. That he got about $ 300,000 for the tweets, he reported nowhere.

Khaled told his 4 million followers that a coin from the same company “will change everything”. “Go buy them now!” He advised them. He received 50,000 dollars for those messages.

As a producer, Khaled has worked with the greatest artists of the moment, such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber. Mayweather was world champion in five different weight classes and unbeaten in 2017 with boxing.

Warning

According to the SEC, the two celebrities should have warned that they had been hired to advertise. The watchdog remembered influencers last year that rules apply to this type of shopping. Buyers are also advised not only to be guided by celebrities.

With this settlement, neither Khaled nor Mayweather have to confess guilt, but they do pay 100,000 and 300,000 dollars respectively. They must also repay the amount earned, including interest. In addition, Mayweather can not advertise financial products for three years and Khaled two years.

The SEC gives the two twenty days to pay. In the settlementis included that this can be done in cash, per check or through the bank, crypto coins are not mentioned as a possibility.
