Inter stayed in last place in the group but at least
has revived its chance of qualifying for the last 32.
It will come as a relief for coach Frank De Boer, with

Southampton, in good form in the Premier League,

NOTICE OF APPOINTMENT
(Pursuant to Section 439 of the
Companies Act 1995)
I, George Dieffenthaller, hereby
give notice that I have been ap-
pointed liquidator of Quarter Turn
Limited by Ordinary Resolution of

Dated the 7th October 2016.
NEW YORK---A Florida businessman
pleaded guilty in New York to conspiracy
charges yesterday in a scheme to pay bribes
to high-ranking soccer officials in exchange
for media and marketing rights to interna-
tional soccer tournaments and matches.
Aaron Davidson, 45, entered the plea in
Brooklyn federal court. Sentencing before US
District Judge Pamela K Chen was set for
April 24, when Davidson could face decades
in prison. As part of his plea, he agreed to
forfeit more than a half-million dollars.
Davidson was arrested last year in the FIFA
probe after prosecutors said soccer officials
accepted $150 million in bribes over a 24-
year period in exchange for rigging bids for
lucrative marketing rights.
Davidson ran a Miami-based marketing
firm. He was arrested along with more than
a dozen other people in a case prosecuted in
the United States on the grounds that illegal
payments used US banks and those involved
conducted meetings in the United States.
Prosecutors said Davidson negotiated and
agreed to make bribe payments totaling more
than $14 million, executing multiple criminal
schemes including the agreement to pay
bribes to a high-ranking official of FIFA,
CONCACAF, the Caribbean Football Union
and one of FIFA's national member associ-
The government said the bribes were paid
to secure lucrative media and marketing rights
to international soccer tournaments and
matches for his company, Traffic USA, and
its business partners.
Prosecutors said those sports events includ-
ed FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the CONCA-
CAF Gold Cup and the CONCACAF Cham-
pions League, among others.
The government said its investigation con-
MANCHESTER---Paul Pogba cast aside
criticism of his recent performances by
delivering a reminder of his talent yester-
day, scoring twice in Manchester United's
4-1 win over Fenerbahce in the Europa
The France midfielder has struggled to
justify his world-record price tag of $116
million since returning to Old Trafford from
Juventus in August, with Jose Mourinho
unable to find the best position for Pogba
in United's midfield.
More displays like this and the critics will
Pogba marked a dominant all-round per-
formance by converting a penalty to put
United ahead before producing the highlight
of the game, a 25-meter curler into the top
corner in first-half injury time to make it
"Two days ago, he was the worst player
of the Premier League and 48 hours later
he is phenomenal," Mourinho said sarcas-
tically. "He needs time. To be in Italy for
four or five years and come back to the Pre-
mier League, I wasn't expecting him to click
his fingers and get back his intensity."
Anthony Martial also scored from the
spot, three minutes after Pogba's penalty,
and Jesse Lingard made it four goals in an
18-minute span with a low drive from outside
the area in the 48th.
It was a timely result for United, which
was accused of being negative and too defen-
sive in a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in the Premier
League on Monday. This matched its biggest
win of the season.
There was room for sentiment at Old
Trafford, with the home fans applauding
the consolation goal scored by former United
striker Robin van Persie in the 83rd. The
Dutch striker was at United from 2012-15,
helping the team win its 20th and most
recent title in 2013, so no wonder his name
was sung throughout the stadium after his
Wayne Rooney failed to get in on the scor-
ing act in his first start in five games after
being dropped as he struggles for form, but
he performed well and linked play with mid-
field runners. He gave up penalty-taking
duties, an unselfish act perhaps to give Pogba
the chance of a goal to boost his confidence.
United moved onto six points, the same
as Feyenoord after three games in Group A.
Fenerbahce may partly blame the per-
formance on its chaotic buildup to the match.
The airplane carrying the Turkish team to
England on Wednesday had to make an
emergency landing in Hungary after a bird
strike cracked the windshield.
The journey lasted around 12 hours, caus-
ing Fenerbahce to miss training at Old Traf-
Here's a look at other matches in the third
round of group games in Europe's second-
tier club competition:
SHAKHTAR DONETSK 5, GENT 0
Shakhtar had five different scorers---Viktor
Kovalenko, Facundo Ferreyra, Bernard, Tai-
son, and Maksym Malyshev---in a win that
kept the team on maximum points after
three games in Group H.
Kovalenko got the Ukrainian team rolling
with a 40-meter strike in Lviv as Shakhtar
went five points clear in the group.
Schalke, a 1-0 winner at Krasnodar, and
Zenit St. Petersburg, which rallied to beat
Dundalk 2-1, are the other teams to have a
maximum nine points so far.
