Radical PSG fans attacked Shakira
Some PSG Ultras committed an act of sexism against the singer Shakira. On Sunday, several of them posted banners with offensive messages towards the Colombian singer.
For example, one of these posters read "Shakira à la Jonquera", referring to a brothel on the border between Spain and France.
PSG was categorical in condemning these misogynist actions, judging these messages as "ridiculous" and saying that they are completely "out of place" in its institution. This, framed in the match between PSG and Barcelona (where Gerard Piqué, Shakira's partner, pays) for the Champions League, which finally left the French team as the winner of the key where Piqué did not play because he was injured.

Largest signing bonus NFL contract ever signed
It is the contract of Quarterback Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys. The previous one is an arrangement of 160 million dollars for four years with the organization. The unique thing about this contract is the Prescott signing bonus, that is, the guaranteed money that is given to the player whether or not he stays with the team. In this case, it is the highest in history, worth 66 million dollars. Without a doubt, a juicy contract that puts a lot of pressure on Prescott.
Dak Prescott will make a lot of money but leaves the Cowboys with no cap room. The rest of the team will be "average" or worse. Dak does not play defense/Dak ganará mucho dinero pero deja a los Cowboys sin espacio en tope salarial. El resto del equipo será “promedio” o peor.— Juan Carlos Vázquez (@elnarrador) March 9, 2021
